The regular meeting of the  directors  was held on Tuesday of this week at  the  company's  New  York  office, 52  Broadway, when a dividend ol two per  oent was declared upon the  par  value  of the stock  outstanding, payable but  ol the net earnings of the company on  December  31st,   19*09.    As   135,000  shares of the par value of $100 are  issued,   this    dividend    amounts    to  $270,000.  ....'........  This will be the eleventh dividend  paid by the Granby company. Of the  eleven dividends seven were at the rate  of three per cent���a dividend of two  per cent, and an extra dividend of one  per cent. The first dividend was at  the rate of one per cent and the last  three at two per cent.  The company has no stated periods  for declaring dividends, this being the  only payment this year, against $4 per  share in 1908 and $9 in 1907. But  trie large sums of money which have  been expended on the enlargements of  Granby smelting plant from the net  earnings of the company are accountable for the long non-dividend period.  Now that these enlargements are practi  cally completed and paid for, and with  a 25 per cent, increase in copper production the prospects* of Granby for  -.4910 are exceedingly..!*-* igh t for paying  dividends amounting to probably $8 or  more per shaFe_during~the7ear. ~" ~  With this dividend the Granby has  paid back to its shareholders, ail told,  over three and three-quarter millions,  the payments and amounts being as  folio ws;t  No. 1���December, 1903. .. .$133,630  No. 2���January, 1906   405,000  No. 3���February, 1909.. .. 405,000  No. 4���September, 1906.... 405,000  No. 5���December, 1906.... 405,000  No. 6���March, 1907 .......   405,000  No. 7���June, 1907   405,000  No. 8���September, 1907  405,000  No. 9���June, 1908          270,000  No. 10���December, 1908    270,000  No.n���December, 1909    270,000  WM.'.T ENNIS KILLEb  AT JflOlfHER LODE  Large   Rock ; Rolls   on Him  Yesterday Morning  An unfortunate accident happened  at Mother Lode mine early yesterday  morning in which: VyilliamT.

The company  presenting the play is composed almost  entirely of English players and a really  intellectual and   finished performance  is assured.    C. P. Walker has two sets  of  scenery   constructed   for the play,  one to be used in large  city  theatres,  and the other, an exact   reproduction  of the larger set, to   be  used   on the  smaller stages, so that we can be assured of perfect scenery equipment.    The  costumes are new  and   rich   and add  greatly to  the  beauty   of  the   performance.     William   Yule,  a  comedian  well   known   to  theatre goeis   of   the  west, has been  specially   engaged for  the role of "Touchstone,"   a   pait in  which he has no   superior  among   the  comedians of today.  Not only does this comedy appeal  to the literary-minded, but as a comedy it interests the lover of the humorous and its story holds the attention  of those desiring dramatic situations  and suspence. "As You Like It " is  a play for the teachei, for the student,  a play for the philosopher and the  amusement seeker. It pleases the ear  of the poet and delights the eye of the  artist. It is the nearest play to the ideal  in drama that was ever constructed.  ore trains daily from. Phoenix.to Granby  smelter..-..  . ,..     __... _...:,.,.._.. -  . Grand Forks district .has"shipp��if37  cars of potatoes this season, and there  is more in stock.  Two thousand dollars' damage was  done on Monday by fire in the recently  completed Jeff Davis block at Grand  Forks.  For attempting to commit suicide  Jeff Wilcox of Greenwood was sentenced by Judge Brown to eight  months in jail.  One hundred and three immigrants  entered Canada at Grand Forks port  during November; eleven were refused  admission.  The Consolidated Mining & Smelting Co., of Trail, are reported to have  purchased the Ikeda mine, Queen  Charlotte islands, for $200,009.  Diamond drilling is now in progress  at the Rawhide mine. Power is being  secured by the operation of the steam  compressor   plant   at   the    Brooklyn  mine.  There is little or no prospect for a  hockey team in Greenwood this winter,  through lack of ice. It is possible,  however, that the difficulties will be  overcome later in the season.  Following are the newly elected  officers of Grand Forks lodge, Knights  of Pythias; CC , Frank Latham; V.C.,  E. C. Heniger; Prelate, Roy Curran;  M. of A., A. J.

A large number of businessmen and  and citizens waited on Alderman J. G.  McKeown on Wednesday evening; and  requested him to stand for election to  the office of mayor of the city ��� of  Phoenix for the coming year. They  acknowledged that the position of  chief magistrate would require him. to  make sacrifices, but urged that he was  the man eminently qualified and fitted  for the position and^that he was the  choice of a large proportion of taxpayers, who were desirous of , an  efficient administration for the city;  Mr, McKeown was taken entirely  by surprise and at first declined to run.  He said he was not seeking civic I  honors and, while lie appreciated the  honor done him by the deputation, he  did not feel qualified to fill the office,  and intimated that he had intended  withdrawing from the council entirely.  After considerable discussion of the  municipal situation, Mr. McKeown acceded to the wishes of those present  and decided to allow his name to go  before the electors to become the chief  executive officer. ;,  J. G; McKeown has been a resident  of Phoenix for a number of years, and  is one of the best known and most  popular, men of the city. He was  elected alderman some months ago to  fill the vacancy in the council caused  by the resignation of Alderman P. J.  Cooke and proved a decided acquisition to the board, Mr. McKeown  1-will not bestethered byi string8,;hasr no  axes to grind, owns considerable property and it one ofjliefaw man-qualified  ;to.occupy the mayor's chair.  Although the election date is still  four weeks distant, the entrance of Mr.  McKeown into the mayoralty field has  created considerable interest in local  politics. Some look for his return by  acclamation, while others maintain that  an "acclamation" is a thing of the past  in Phoenix. .A number of citizens are  said to be donning their civic war  paint and a contest, for the council at  least, appears inevitable.  Mayor Rumberger has intimated that  he does not intend to seek re-election.  ZINC MINING AID ���      i  TO BE CONSIDERED  At Convention in Nelson on  / December 15  A convention of mine owners; and  others,interested in the production and  marketing of zinc ores has been called  by the Nelson board of trade to discuss  ways  and   means   of   improving   the  marketing, and disposing of the  pro  ducts.    It will be held in  Nelson on  Wednesday,   December    15th.     The  presence of zinc in ores, especially in  the Kootenay district (except in a few  special  cases) has  been a detriment  rather than a benefit to mine owners.  At the,same time the only  market is  practically in  the  United  States, the  average freight being $10 per ton, and  the duty about the same, making a  charge of some $20 per ton to place  .t-i    _:___i��� -"_r ��_:��   j:...:��i-  .t tu_  Mm  Granby Not  >^B.;C."~  *v J  <9  1 ���*    rJsf  ��er  *9  ��k  I 1*41  Returns from Inspection of the  Shattock Arizona at Bisbee  ores,of this district at the  the   zinc  smelter.  It is felt that the time has,arrived  when, these conditions might be improved, and that some action towards  promoting this' might be brought about  by a conference of those interested.  In the first place in order to present  the question in all its bearings it will  be necessary to have some authentic  information regarding the present production of zinc ores arid other matters  in connection therewith, and this can  be gathered at such a meeting.  The   matters  which  pressnt them  selves as being worthy of discussion if  a meeting'can be convened are:  i. The   establishment   of   a   zinc  smelter'in this country.  2. The establishment of home manufactories of zinc products.  3. The asking for government aid  for assistance in experiments.  4. The asking for a bounty on zinc  similar to that at present in force for  lead./   ;���;//,/   //'.  5; The asking for the increase 01 the  duty on sine'' ore products, such as  spelter,: oxides, etc., which now come  into this country, principally from the  UnitedStates,,either free.of <Juty or at  a/low tariff."' .  A. B. W. Hodges, local manager of  the Granby Consolidated, returned  this week from a trip to Arizona, and  yesterday was in camp looking over  the mines, after an absence of some  weeks. Mr. Hodges is consulting en- '  gineer for the Shattuck Arizona mines  at Bisbee and makes periodical trips  to inspect the property.  Although the Shattuck is a copper  proposition, it is very different from  the Granby. Low operating vcosts  which permits the mining and smelting  of.ore running...one per, cent, .at a  profit, is the feature of the Phoenix  producer, while, according to Mr.  Hodges, only ore running five per cent  or more in copper is being-mined at  the Shattuck Arizona,- on, account of-  the greater costs of copper production.  Shattuck ore is treated at the Copper  Queen smelter. ,. :,    ."���'.'"  ; Speaking  of   the  possibility   of   a  merger  of the Granby   and   British l  m  M  I'm  '���If  .,','.y'.'-.:��'Si-?^fj|  w  -MMs  .-.SVv'-  The city of Greenwood will enter  suit against all who do not pay their  faxes-by Dec. 15.  LOCAL, COMPANIES INTERESTED  "As You Like It" in Phoenix opera  house next Tuesday evening.  A Brllliinl Company  The English Grand Opera   Sjngers  delighted all music-lovers in the opera  house.Tuesday evening.    The   performers were each of distinct  merit and  combined in giving a brilliant program.  Every   number   was  a  gem, and   the  presentation   of  "Martha,"   with   its  finished detail, was the work of accomplished  artists,    Miss   Juanita   Rush  winning the hearts of the  audience by  her beautiful   rendition of  "The Last  Rose of Summer."    Manager  Pickard  is    to   be   congratulated   on   having  brought such an excellent organization  to the local opera, and citizens should  encourage him in his   efforts to secure  standard attractions by patronizing the  balance of the Star concer}   course, of  which this was  the  second   entertainments.    These  concerts  are   secured  pn\y by a big guarantee.  In Cooper Mlalog on Northern British Col  nmbla Coast  Daring the past season the Consoli  dated  Mining  and   Smelting   Co.   of I  Canada (Ltd.), owning the Centre Star]  group at Rossland and having its head  office at Trail, has had an  engineer in  the fueen Charlotte Islands, Portland  canal   and   other   new   and   coming  Pacific coast mining districts, and it is  more than likely that this company will  operate  mines  in   the   ccast   copper  camps during the coming year, as   will  the Granby Consolidated, the   Le Roi  and possibly one or   two  of  the other  big copper companies of southeastern  British Columbia.   This is in line with  the expansive policy that all  the  large  concerns  of this   district  have  lately  adopted.    Expansion in   this  section,  however, is not to be neglected, but it  is felt that the new fields being opened  up on the coast are too valuable to be  overlooked.    There  are   many   economical features connected with mining  near tidewater in the Queen Charlotte  Islands particulary  that   make copper  properties so situated valuable adjuncts  to a progressive and expanding copper-  producing concern.���Mining Journal.  ��� ��� R��e��tv��f laperUai ~Aef��MaM_t   "W.

This statement was made to a  Daily Record representative today by  P. C. Stoess, one of the consulting engineers. The change will take place  on December 1."  The above article taken from the  Daily Record of Juneau, Alaska, refers  to a former resident of Phoenix and  employe of the Granby company.  The property of which Mr. Priestly  has been appointed superintendent is  located at Douglas, Alaska, and his  many friends here will wish him every  success.

Any overtures that will be made towards  such;  an amalgamation will not come from  the Granby, he said, and   quoted; past  instances to show that that was not the.  policy  of the Granby.

He believes the combine will be. a boon to  the copper industry as a result of the  check  on  production which it would  control.     A   13 cent  copper  market  does   not   permit   the larger   corporations  to  pay   sufficient   interest   in  dividends to represent the initial and  subsequent investments.     Fifteen cent  copper is needed and with it will come  prosperity in copper mining.  "IP  . pi  . w;.:;;  ���m  &<:������-'���  M..  ��� -.; ���      -.

mine, on Sheep Creek, recently dis-
posed of that property to Vancouver
parties, represented by Mr. Oliver.
The consideration was in the neighbor
hood of $40,000.
The total production of coal in
British Columbia in 1908 was a, 109,-
387 long tons, of which 918,872 tons
were sold for consumption in British
Columbia, and 567,284 tons were exported to the United States.
Bar-tenders at the coast have to be
licensed. ' Is would be a good thing if
the Government passed a law making
it compulsory "that the vendors of
liquor throughout the whole province
take out licenses.
An important mining transfer is reported on the Arrow lakes by which
the Big Ledge mine, near Burton City,
passes into the hands of New York
capitalist*. The'Big Ledge is a zinc
propoeition, and it is claimed that
300,000 tons of ore are in sight, while
the mine is described as being practically a quarry proposition.

Vancouver's commercial progress is
aptly illustrated by the growth and
progress of her financial institutions.
Changes are being made on every
hand, and office accommodation that
was more than adequate a year ago, is
now discarded as being insufficient to
handle the volume of business trans
Among those recently installed in
new quarters is the Dominion Stock

Limited, whose premises rank with the
finest in western Canada.
These new offices are exceptionally
spacious and impress the visitor at

Mr. Julius Glacier of Denbigh, Ont.,
says:—"I was so tortured by piles that
I'-could "not -ger'ease"whether lying
down, sitting, or standing. The ailment robbed me of strength, of appe-
titei ahd bf-all ■ desire to live! __ I had
suffered so long and so acutely'that I
came to think there was no ease for
me, but one day I found out. that-1
was wrong! * ';•- j
"I was told that Zam-Buk-cured
pile?, and that this" balm was ,'alto-
gether different to ordinary ointmen's,
scores of which I had proved ^useless
for so bad a case as mine was. •' I got
a supply of Zam-Buk, and began to use
it regularly.
"Without going into unnecessary detail in a few weeks I found myself
cured. I owe my cure to Zam-Buk
entirely, and I trust my experience will
be the means of leading other, fiufterers
to try this great herbal balm."     j
Nothing need be pdded to this plain,
powerful testimony iave one question
 if you  suffer  lirce  Mr. Glacieir did,
why not get relief from the same sburce
as ho did? " '
Zam Buk—as ho truly says—is
"something different" to the ordinal \
ointments and salves. It is a powerful
combination of hea'.ing and ioothing
herbal essences. No iiiimnl astringents or poisouu, no impure animal
fats. ''
It is a proved cure for inflamed
areas (as in piles) erysipelas; cdzema,
ulcels, sores, abscesses, celd- cracks,
chapped hands, burns, cuts, ! scalp
sores, and all skirj^ injuries and.dis
eases. It is the most suitable, balm
