Bondholders of the Dominion Cop:  per company are holding a meeting at  the New. York office of Samuel Unte-'  myer, at which a plan of reorganization  is being'submitted.  The company was thrown into the  hands of a receiver some weeks ago at  the instigation of the .National Trust  Co. of Toronto, trustee for the bonds,  as there was not paid into the .sinking  fundi when due, $80,000.  P. F. Roosa, general manager of the  property, was appointed receiver to  care for the assets covered by ihe  mortgage securing the bonds, and since  that time he has also been appointed  liquidator upon the application of a  stockholder, so that he now represents  all classes of creditors. Mr. Rt^osa  left here a few days ago for New York,  and the meeting will probably be held  on Ins arrival: '   ��� ��� |  In connection with tbe proposed reorganization it is notiunlikely that an  assessment will be levied.  The Boston Coaimercial copper  critic has the following to say aooiit  the company: ���  "Injudicious administration and the  unwise use of its large treasury surplus  were responsible for the down-fall ���of  the Dominion Copper cornpany. Some  time ago when the stock, was selling  above $2 we advised holders to sell it.  We understand that plans are being  made for a reorganization if the company, or possibly the sale of the property to; or consolidation with, one of  the other companies operating. in the  same district. We would not advise  holders to sell the stock at $1 per  share, as we think they will, do better  to hold it and take part in such reorganization as is presented. The company's properties we believe to be  valuable." '  A prominent brokerage firm of New  Boundary lining Notes  A new electric 'pump has been installed to replace, the air pump in No.  3 tunnel/Granby mines.  It is expected .some test ore will  shortly'be shipped'lrom the Athelstan  "Fraction, Wellingro'n camp. \  The Greenwood-Phoenix big tunnel  !scheme is being rfevived,'the promoters  claiming to have the: project satisfactorily financed.    ; .-���>���.  Arrangements; have been made with  the Granby!smelter to treat all ore  from the Republic mine which is now  being developed by'a new company.  The Canadian Consolidated company's Snowsnoe mine tonnages, continue to grow, about 450 tons daily being averaged 'during the past week. The  mine shipped 1,220 tons to the B. C.  Copper smdter and 1,920 tons to  Trail, the total of 3,140 tons being the  largest weekly tonnage shipped this  year. The (Wee at the mine is being  gradually increased and it is expected  that alter the beginning of the year  the Snowshoj: shipments will show stil  greater increases.        ��� ;  MINE ACCIDENT,  PROVES FATAL  York recommends Dominion  Copper  stock as good buying.

In his death Phoenix loses one of its  most highly respected citizens. During  his residence here . he, had become  identified, with many local organizations'  and his untimely death cast a gloom  over the entire community.

THEY ARE NOT  BIRRED  Men Over 50 Year Old Can Vite Even If They  Do Not Pay RoadTax.  Any man who Is exenpl from tbe  payment of the road taxhas tbe liberty  of voting in municipal dections if he  possesses the other netessary qualifications.  That is the effect ol a judgement  handed out by His Honor Judge  Spinks at tlie court houeat Kamloops  recently;  Incidentally his decisim runs counter  to that of Chief Justice Hunter for it  was on the strength j( the latter's  judgement of October list, that a'nuru-  ber of names were strikiu from the list  in that city.  The judgment handd out in Victoria on October 20th 1st was to the  effect that "the act didrtoi intend that  anyone should not havta vote who had  not contributed two dolus to the city  treasury exclusive of th:sale of lands,  water rates and dog tax'  In the City of Kamloops a civic bylaw exempts all men o.'tr 50 years of  age from payment of the road tax ol  two dollars.  On the strength of the decision of  the Chid "Justine, City Clerk Garment  struck off the list tbe names of all men  over 50 years uf age. It; practically  meant that men over 50 years of age  could not vote in municipal elections  in Kamloops and n storm of protest  followed from that section ofthe vtters  effected.  J. C. T'unstall made application to  have bis name replaced on the list, and  bis application was carried before  Judge Spinks by City Clerk Carnient  After a lengthy consideration, His  Honor granted the application and  issued an ordei to replace the name on  the list. Similar app'icatkm will hi  made for those others whose names  were stricken off the list for the sanit-  reason.  Judge Spinks' decision has aroused  deep interest in legal circles.  PROGRESS OF GRAND  TRUNK PACIFIC  President   Hays'  Instructions  ,..a... 'jAre to Push7Worlc;7   ;- ���;  The recent* visit lo Prince Rupert of  r-restuciu-nuys,--CTr-rtne ij,ranQ   natik"  Pacific   railway,   and , his trip up the  Skeena for a hundred miles  taking a  look for himself as to how the work of  building the railway was getting on, has  resulted in Foley,   Welch   &   Stewart  getting orders to push the work faster.  Every   time   the  Transit   arrives   she  brings railway laborers to  Prince Ru  pert.    Most of them are Italians, and  they are forwarded to the camps along  the   Skeena   without   delay.   Fifteen  hundred to  two  thousand   more   men  are   needed,    as   for   every   hundred  brought in twenty-five to fifty quit and  go south again.    But, notwithstanding  there is now a shortage of men it   may  be stated that 30 per cent, of the work  on the first 100 miles is done.   If 30 per  cent of the work on the first 100 miles  has been done in six months, during  which time many difficulties had to be  overcome,  it   is  not  unreasonable  to  expect that 50 per cent, of the total  will   be   completed   in   the   next   six  months,   or   by    the   end   of   April,  and three  montns  more  will  see  the  grade   completed  and   tracklayers   at  work.  Seven steam shovels, so it is said,  hive been ordered rushed to Prince  Rupert, where two of them will work  where it is understood the work is now  in charge of Foley, Welch and Stewart.  Two more will be used on the south  end of Kaien island, where a half mile  fill has been made. The final location  of the line across Porpoise islands to  the mainland at Inverness, but is along  tbe south end of Kaien island and  across to the mainland over Watson  island.  Within the last month the different  engineer p:itties engaged in location  work have tied on to each ether and  the main line of tbe G.T.i'. is now  finally located across the province o  British Columbia.  ��� Martin Burrell,, M.P.j and Mrs.Bur-  rell are on a trip through the Okanagan. .

Beck, president  of the -.Spokane 7&, British Columbia j  railvay and Mr. McFarland passed I  through that place on Wednesday renewing the right-of-way contracts between the Columbia river and Spokane.  Mr. Beck is evidently in earnest this  time, as the options are stated to read  that the road must commence opera)  tions on or before the first of July next,  otherwise the contracts are null and  void, and that .the road will be completed from Spokane to the Columbia  river inside of two years.

Root in the Mining World,  for the determination of copper by the  "hypo" method, the following suggestions are presented as offering a satis  factory scheme, especially for low-grade  ores.    The scheme  is   by   no  means  new,it is not original  wi:h  the writer,  but it does not enjoy th2 general use  that it really deserves.  Proceed as usual when making copper determination, where zinc or aluminum would ordanarily be used in pre  cipitating   the   metallic   copper;   but,j  instead of using either of these elements at this  point,   put the copper  sulphate solution into a No. 4 beaker,  dilute about   half full,  put  in  glass  stirring rod, cover and bring to a boil.  While coming t>  a boil,  heat  to  boiling a solution ol 7 to 10 grains of  "hypo" in about 10c c. c. of water.  Pour the solution of "hypo" into the  copper sulphate solution, using care so  as to avoid too violent action and consequent boiling over. Boil hard till  clear. This takes 15 to 30 minutes,  the glass rod preventing bumping.  Filter through a Nd. 597 filter. The  copper sulphide being more or less  granular, the nitration is very rapid.  Wash well with hot water. Place the  filter in small porcelain cups, dry and  ignite at a  temperature just sufficient  'w*       MBC.  1908  progress will be speiied with to burn off the sulphur and consume  capital letters.

' ���   Sir Edward Ward, president of the  Union Jack Club, London,  writes to  the press expressing thanks to Canada  J for her support of the. institution.    He  jrefers'especially to Sir Hugh Graham,  / whose knighthood, it may be stated, is  ���/regarded by British   press   men  as  The Copper Market.  The brilliant rise in copper during  the  last week has excited great   enthusiasm arid has led to an old-fashioned boom in the market for the cop  per stocks.    The rise in the value of  the   metal appears to  be  legitimate,  although   assisted   by   more or  less  manipulation,    says   the   Engineering  and   Mining   Journal.    The  sales   of  copper during the latter half of October  were very large^ and most of the producers   claim  to have  sold their expected output for the remainder of the  year.    However, thsse chims must be  taken with some grains of salt.    There  has been during the lasl six  months  remarkable success in enveloping with  mystery the matter of the unsold stock  of copper.    It is hard to believe that  on October r, say, there was really no  unsold stock of copper, in view of what  was known to be on haid at the  beginning of the.year,  th< slackness  of  business during {much, of the first nine  months,   and   the   large   production.  There have been, of course, the regular  transactions which go en right along,  and there have jbeen seme periods of  very large sales, as   in;October,   but  about 100,000,000 pounds per month,  or 4,000,000 pounds eac'i business day,  must   be sold in order/to dispose of  the production  The current revival in business re-  PRAYING  Of all  kinds  proinn������i��� kk  to.

HANDS COVERED WITH ECZEMA  AMPUTATION FEARED.BUT ZAM-BUK SAVED.  y'."For three long months I was not able to attend to my own Ij  needs; and for three weeks tbe eczema on my hands was so bad that "  1 was unable to feed myself. I bad to be fed as one feed* a baby,  because 1 could not hold knife, fork, spoon, or cup." So says Miss  Violet McScrley, of 75, Core Street, Sault Ste. Marie, In telling bow  Zam-Buk cured her ol eczema. She adds: "Hands, wrists and arms up  to the elbowswero covered with eczema. The itching and the soreness were  nigh unbearable. As the disease developed, the skin actually peeled off  leaving raw [sores. The,palms, fingers, backs of my hands and wrists  were all in i this shocking state, and I was forced to sit. in agony-  all the while!" 0.  "Thi raw sores were soon in a foul condition, and my finger nails, all  except two, fell off. Daring the different stages of my trouble, L sought  the advite of three different doctors and received treatment, but although  getting slight relief at first there was no cure. Amputation was at one  time thought necessary but the timely introduction of Zam-Buk prevented  tkia fearful ending:"  ".Zam-biik' was recommended by a friend and we bought a supply.  The first few applications gave me a little ease, but it was not until I had  continued with it for some time that I felt a decided improvement. .  Afteri that my cure went on quickly. Zam-Buk did what everything  else had failed to do. Now, my hands.and arms are quite freed from the  terrible eczema."  Are you suffering from akin disease?

Although the fruit crop throughout  the Okanagan Valley has been much  larger than in previous years it is  claimed by many fruit growers that  their, profits will not be nearly as large  and two reasons are given. One is  that the price quoted for fruit is not  high enough, and the other that the  railways are exacting too high a tariff  for transportation.  Weraloat II Blizzard.  Messrs. W. F. McNeill, H. H.

BOWSERMDENTIST'S  Wife Tells of Case of Toothache  and How It Was Relieved.  HEAD OF HOUSE A SCOFFER.  That Is, Until He Had Trouble With  His Molars and Had to Seek Medical  , Help In Order to Relieve His Suffer-"  ings.  tCopyrieht, 1908, by T. C. McClure.]  I had been-suffering wltb toothaclu*  for a couple of days before Mr. Bowser  became uware of the fact. Knowing  'how he would "perform," I'did iiiy li'ost'  to conceal the matter, but after'hiiyina  Buffered such piiin all night that I could  not close my eyes In sleep I liatl to toll  him that I must pay a visit to the den  tist,  "Oh, you must go to tbe dentist, eh'!"  he queried. "Been out wutiing In a  mud puddle in your bare feet! Well.  (What did you expect?"  "You know  I have done nothing of;  the kind,' Mr. Bowser.   In golng^'to the  butcher shop the other day I forgot,'iiiy'.  rubbers and probably got my feet a little damp."  -   "A little damp!    you probably got'ein  ���caking wet!  That's like-a', woman���to  forget   her   rubbers   and   go   s'ti'ollliig'  about in ii shower.   By thunder;'Mrs. .  Bowser, but how you have ninnuged to  live as long as you have beats me!"'-������';  "But isn't everybody liable to b'n'vt'  toothache?" Tasked.  ���   "No. ma'am, everybody Isn't.   For in ,  "OBP. WHIZ I    JEMUM'!"  stance, I never bad It in my whole life.  Only people without brains enough to  take care of themselves have such ailments. Well, don't look for any sympathy from me. On the contrary, I hope  the dentist will gouge and file and  probe and hurt as much ns he can. No  use crying around about it; but get on  lyour hat and go through with it."  "Do you think he'll have to pull It?"  VOf course, and It will . hurt like  blazes."  "And' yo�� -w��.'*--ol"3���^.��jtx"~-gv��     inui-  -me?"  "I'd like to see myself!"  "But   may   I   telephone   you   about  Boon?"  "No. ma'am, you mayn't. If the dentist pulls your head off, 1 shall find it  out when I get home, and that will be  time enough. No woman that forgets  her rubbers when Ifs raining cats and  dogs deserves any sympathy. If you  are crying around fills' evening, don't  ��xpect me to put myself, out In the  least Forgot your rubbers!: Humph!"  With that he was'gbne, and I took  my sorrowful way to the dentist He  found a cavity and had it plugged with  cotton batting In ten minutes, and the  ache soon disappeared." - When Mr.  Bowser came home at night I bad quite  recovered my .'spirits. I started to tell  him all about the cure, but be waved  his band and interrupted:.  "I don't:I want to hear about it It  won't be oiver-a-iweek before you will  be sitting on;a.:cliunk of ice or doing  some other, silly thing and have to go  through with it again. A man learns  by experience; a "woman must have  her neck broken to get sense into her  head."       \ "���"������  Mr. Bowser's words" may. look brutal  In cold print, but I know-that he didn't  really nieaii  them that way. . I didn't  hope for revenge, bu��) it-, came to. me:  Just the same, aud only "a' night or two  later.    He vhad been out fussing with  the drain in the back yard and got his  feet damp.   Two hours later as we sat  reading  he. gave a  sudden  start and  carried his hand to hisjaw.  "Did youbite your tongue?" Tasked.  "Why don't you ask' if I have bitten  my big toe?" bo domauded. .  "But you-gsive such a sudden start."  "Can't n |man give sudden starts in  bis own bouse if lie wants to?"  She .CincilcdXamphor.  Then   he  slipped   upstairs  and   wns  tone ton nilnutes, and when ho came  down  I  smclled c��mphoron his breath.  I 8uspecte(i*nieiffhat one of his teeth  had gi^cu ji'lnV a twist    He sat down  and tried  to got  very  busy   with  tbe  newspaper.' but after about five  minutes  he   was   fairly  lifted  out  of  bis  chair and almost uttered a wanvboop.  "Mr.  Bowser, have you sat down on  a tnck or what?" I asked.  "Gee   whiz!    .Icinimy!"  ho  groaned.  With ills hand pressing bis jaw.  "You've got tbe toothache!"  "I���I deny it!"  "You went out in that wet yard and  ���worked at that old drain without your  rubbers on, and toothache is the result.  That's the way with a man. How you  have lived to your present age Is a puz-  lalo to nie."  He had opened his mouth to deny If  lwan  toothache  when  another "jump"  latruok htm and drew his heels off tho  floor.   It wns no use to try to deceive  any longer.   I had to lead hl��i over to  the lounge and assist him to lie down,  and by that time his groans sounded  like n horse In .its dying agonies.  During tho next half hour-  He asked for camphor.  He usked for peppermint.  He asked for wintergreen.  He asked for arnica.  He wanted hot salt.  He wanted hot ashes.  "Well, you are In for it," 1 said as  none of tire remedies did any good.  "If  you had had your rubbers on, you see-  But you didu't have.    You just went  Echini!- out tiusce ami botmJWU at .  tuem.   il' you live until  morning you  will have to go to the dentist's."  "But I'll live, won't I?" be asked in  a pitiful voice..  "Possibly, but when the toothache  seizes a man like you 'hat's never had  It before it soes hard wltb him. nUye  you anything on your conscience that  you wish to confess, Mr. Bowser?"  "Confession be hanged!" he roared  as he drew up his legs. "Mrs. Bowser,  can you stand by and see me suffer-the  way ] do and not move a fluger?"  J'You'II have to do as I did, dear. lot  me see your tooth." ..  "Never! Never in this world!"  "Well, you'll have to stand it some  way until morning.

Even -if.lt hurts ever so  bad you won't bother ine about it. 1  have my. work to do and can't bollu-i-  with a ;;.husband careless' enough to  leave his rubbers behind.";.

He  was quiet and humble until we .entered  the house, and then he turned  to me  with:   ''"������'... ��� ;  "Mrs. Bowser, let this be an objec-i  lesson to you."  "What do you mean?"

The Government should do a great  deal more than they have yet dreamed  of doing. But they are not doing it,  aud in the meantime twelve thousand  die annually in tbe Dominion, from  this dread disease.  As the situation is to-day, what  would be the fate of many consumptives in Canada were it not for the two  Hoiues'for Consumptives in Muskoka  that during tlie past eleven years,  against, many odds, have eared for  upwards of three thousand patients in  tlie earlier stages of the disease,  whilst in the two sister institutions,  on the banks of the Htunber, those in  the more advanced stages are treated.  This work in Muskoka is one of pure  philan'thinpy. -From the day the first  patient was admitted to the Muskoka  Free Hospital for Consumptives in  April, 1002, not a single applicant hits  over been refused admission because of  his or her inability to pay.  The Government contribute $1.50  per week per patient. Tlie cost of  maintenance is $0.25 a week.' The  difference in the cost of maintenance  of all-needy patients has through these  years been made up by private philanthropy.  Tlie Secretary-Treasurer of the  Association, Mr. J. S. Robertson, 8-17  King ytreot West, Toronto, writes ns  that, with the financial depression of  the past year, the funds of the Muskoka  Free Hospital for Consumptives have  suffered greatly. At the commence-  ment of the winter season the Trustees  have to face a heavily overdrawn bank  account and have many obligations to  meet.  Despite these financial worries every  applicant, is receiving careful consideration and patients are admitted as  promptly as beds are mad'1 vacant.-  All throiigh-the.se years the institution lias been inaintaineil. not by any  rich endowment, for such does not  exist, hut by the generous contributions  of tho masses of the people���the small  snins rather ilia ii Ihe largo ones.  We frankly say I hat we do not know,  in our experience, of a more worthy  and deserving charity, and our hope is  that tin; readers of these lines will  respond to the appeal that is now made  for funds for tho Muskoka Free Hospital for Consumptives.
