Investor of Boston recently  contained the following article on  Granby:  Among the copper '���; stocks which  seem to me to be selling rather cheap  at the present time is that of Granb)  Consolidated Mining, Smelting &  Power Co., which is quoted around  100. I believe the stock is worth  more and I look lo see it selling considerably higher within the next year.  As a matter of fact, the annual report  of this company as of June 30, 1909,  shows conclusively that" the company  is again attaining a position which will  enable the declaration of a dividend to  be made before long.  Last year Granby produced 21,901,-  528  pounds  of copper at   about   10  cents a pounds   This copper .was sold  at an average of 13.22 cents per pound,  and the gross income was $3,983,536  I'he net profits were $681, 134, leaving,  after  dividend  charges,   a   surplus of  $41 r, 134, as compared with  a deficit  of $68,478 last year.    In other words,  this means that $5 was earned on each  ofthe   135,000 shares of stock,  and  that rather than showing a deficit the  company piled up a very good  surplus  for the year.    Of the $5 earned $2 per  share was paid in dividends  last  December  and   $2   per share  went into  charges for new construction.  Some   have   unfairly   criticized   the  management for not charging the construction up to the copper costs.    The  majority of people, however, believe that  since the company was  to realize the  profits from this construction during the  following year,it was onlyright to charge  its cost from the earnings.    During the  year the company, increased its underground development, so "that 40% more  ore might be handled' than heretofore  This  underground development work  was properly charged to copper making  cost's. " That- "the"���"���'company   is  now  making .use .of.these Jncreases tsj>hown  I by the fact that  during  the   month o  October it increased its production by  nearly 50 per cent.  The Granby Con-olidated   Mining,  Smelting   and     Power    Company   is.  not  an old   company.     Incorporated  in. 1901   it  began   paying   dividends  in   1906,  and   has "paid   a  total   ol  $25 per share;   $12   in.1 1906,   $9  in  1907,   and   $4   in   1908.    In   other  words, since the'date  of its incorporation this company has paid better than  $3 per share each year of its existence.  The company now  has  7   furnaces in  operation and its  production   will be  brought up to over 30,000,000 pounds  of copper per year.    With  the  costs  decreasing (they  are now about 9^  cents per pound),  there js no  reason  why this  company  should  not uv*ke  money even on a 13 cent metal market.  Figuring the costs at  9^  cents,  even  on a 13 cent metal  market,  the company would then show earnings of over  $7 per share.    This, however, is a conservative   estimate,   for   many  believe  that within  a year the costs  will  be  down to 9 cents, and   that the produc  tion will   be  greater  than   30,000,000  pounds of copper, perhaps 35,000,000,  an output  which  would  show  a   fine  profit to the stockholders.  The company has a capital of 150,-  000 shares, par \alue $100 per share,  and 135,000 shares are outstanding,  it is expected that the remaining 15,-  000 shares  of  treasury  stock   will   be  DIVIDEND OF  30c. DECLARED  By Hedley Gold Mining Company  Boundary Mining Notes  CONSOLIDATED CO.  ACUIRES NO. 7 MINE  Initial Dividend Payable on January 4th Next  At a meeting of the directors of the  Hedley Gold Mining company in Boston last week an initial dividend of 30  cents per share was declared, payable  on January 4th, 1910, to stock, of  record December 20th, 1909. For  this purpose the books of the company  will close on December 20th and re  open January 5th. As there are 120,-  000 shares outstanding, this dividend  amounts to $36,006, or a disbursement of six per cent.  The Hedley Gold Mining company  own the famous Nickle Plate mine and  40-stamp mill at Hedley, having  acquired the property. from an explor  ation syndicate' .last August. The  syndicate received '98,000 shares of  the 120,000-share capitalization, while  the remainder was paid to the vendo'rs  of the property.  The 40-stamp mill has been running  smoothly, and within a few days the  company hopes to determine from experiments now being made what  changes will be necessitated in the  mill to reduce tailing losses. The  company expects, by mill improvements, to increase profits $1 per ton.  The operation of the mill previous to  the new company taking control,  resulted in o loss of $2.50 per ton, in  the tailings.  Tbe Licenie Bylaw  At a meeting of the city council on  Wednesday evening the hotel license  bylaw received its second reading. It  sets the annual licence fee at $650.  I'he bylaw willreceivc-its final reading  next Wednesday.  The   Belcher   mine   at   Republic,  which   has  been, shipping to Granby  smelter in the past, has  contracted to  ship two cars of ore per week lo Trail.  The profits ol the BiiMsh Columbia  Copper  company   for   the   month   of  November   amounted   to $54,000, as  compared   with   $38,000 in October.  The  cost ^ of copper production   was  lowered to 7.35 cents per  pound,  as  against 8 8 cents the previous  month.  The permanent  head office of the  New  Dominion   Copper  company   is  now located in Phoenix.    At the Rawhide mine exploratory work  with  the  diamond drill is being continued with  three shifts operating.    Power is supplied by  a  steam  compressor at the  Brooklyn mine.    About   15  men  are  now in' the employ of  the  company  locally.  E. Jacobs,   formerly   editor  of the  Mining   Record,   was   in   camp  last  week.    Mr. Jacobs was making a tour  of the mines to secure information  for  his annual review of British Columbia  mining which' will appear in the  Nel  son News on   Jan.   2.    Mr. Jacobs is  probably the  most  authoritative  man  on mining  in   the  province, and contributes to many of the   foremost journals.    Speaking of Phoenix mines Mr.  Jacobs said they   require  no   inflating  write-up, the facts are eloquent enough.  The   Lone   Pine Surprise   group of  mines  in  Republic camp have   been  acquired by   the  Republic Mines corporation, $225,000 being the consideration.    The property just sold is said  to contain the largest and  richest ore  shoot  in   the   camp.    The   shoot   is  nearly 300 feet long at the surface and  has only  been  opened  to a depth of  100 feet.    It is known as the Surprise  shoot, and from a small area of ground  at its south end in 90 days during the  summer five  miners who  had a lease  extracted $52,000 worth   of  ore.     At  the expiration of their  lease a  large  bonus and royalty was   offered  for an  extension, but the  owners   would   not  consideFTt.    The~properties  sVTip to  Granby and Tacoma smelters.  Purpose   Erecting   a Concentrator Next Summer  I'he Consolidated Mining and  Smelting company, owning (he Trail  smelter" and operating the Snowshoe  mine of Phoenix and several other  properties, have acquired the No. 7  mine in Central camp, about six miles  south of Phoenix.  A bond was taken early in the  summer and the property thoroughly  sampled. The company has also secured an option on 18 acres of land  close to the propeity on which they  purpose erecting a mill, to which the  ore will be trammed to the concentrator.  A. B. Cartwright, formerly of the St.  Eugene mine, Moyie, and Trail, ai-  rived in Phoenix on Saturday and has  been placed in charge of operations at  No. 7, under Superintendent Biesel of  the Snowshoe mine. About a dozen  men are now employed at the No. 7.  D. J. MATHESON  IN THE FIELD  Will Oppose J. G. McKeown for Mayor  .i,.<c  Municipal Campaign Already  in Full Swing  \ Close Call .  A team of horses, attached to a  sleigh carrying 2500 pounds of giant  powder, which had been left alone on  Old Ironsides avenue on Thursday  started for their stable Dy way of First  street. They brought the dangerous  cargo slowly down the big hill until  the sleigh struck a telephone pole at  the bottom, and fortunately to relate  the only damage done was a slight  break to the sleigh. It was nothing  short of a miracle that an explosion  did not occur  with disastrous results.  MINING MEN IN CONVENTION  .ssued towards the latter part of the  year in-order to take care of the money  the company has invested in the  Crows Nest Pass Coal Co. The company is controlled by strong N-sw York  interests, James J. Hill being represented on the board of directors, as  is the American Metal Co. and ihe  Nichols Copper Co. I believe this  hO'<:k will sell materially higher within  the yc.ir.  H-IULUJiJ".!*... 111.

PHOENIX HOCKEY  CLUB REORGANIZED  Officers Elected and Plans Laid  for Season  At a largely attended meeting of  local hockey enthusiasts this week  plans were completed to have a championship hockey septette that will seek  all provincial honors for Phoenix  during the present season Officers  were elected as follows : -   ;  Honorary President, O. B. Smith, Jr.  President, Mayor G. W. Rumberger.  Vice president, Judge Williams.  Secretary-treasurer, A. A. White.  Executive committee���James Walsh,  Roy Clothier, James Corbet, Roy  Clarke,    and    Claude     McAstocker,  manager.  During the  past  summer  and  fall  some noted puchchasers have come to  make their residence in   Phoenix and  the management  of the club expect  they will be able to trot out the fastest  aggregation that ever figured on ice in  the Boundary.    A subscription list has  been generously signed by businessmen  and enthusiasts and the club will get  away to a good start financially.    The  management are taking  steps to guard  against any wrangling among members  of the team  which somewhat predominated last season and which was partly  attributable lor the loss  of the Boundary championship  last  winter.    The  line-up is not yet decided on  but will  probably be made known next  week.  There is also evidences fo an active  interest   in     ,ockey    throughout   the  Boundary.    Grand   Forks   team,  last  season?s champions, have been reorganized and  will endeavor  to retain  the  title to  the trophy which  they  hold;  Greenwood is to  have  ice r.��xt  week  and will probably have a team  to  rep  resent it; at Mother Lode a new rink  is  being erected and  it  is said  they  have material for a good hockey team,  while contractor J. B.   Tiemey claims  to haye a line up at  Wellington camp  that includes prominent graduates of  eastern hockey leagues, and expects to  get them into the local league.  NOVEMBER WAS  RECORD MONTH  Interest in the approaching election  for municipal honors is gaining interest  daily and a contest for every seat in  the council now appears probable.  At the solicitation of a number of  ratepayers D. J. Matheson has consented to again run for the chief executive office of Phoenix for which he  will oppose Councillor J. G. McKeown.  Mr. Matheson served as Mayor during  1907 and 1908, but was defeated in  the election last January by G. W.  Rumberger. Although it had been  expected that Mr. Matheson would not  again seek the office, he states he is in  the race today.  For the council it is expected that  all the present aldermen, except  possibly Mr. Marshall, will seek reelection. Mr. Marshall states he will  not be a candidate. A number rof  others are mentioned for councilmen,  f >  but none have definitely declared themselves as yet.  Nominations fof mayor, aldermen,  and school trustees take place on Jan.  6th, and election on Jan. 13th.  VIGOROUS OCTOOBNARIAN  Oreo Barron Smlib, Father of 0. B.

The only month which approached this in tonnage was March,  1908, when about 110,000 tons were  shipped.  Granby's total shipments for the  year have now passed the million mark  and before the year closes will exceed  the record output of 190S.  The ore receipts at the smelter for  the month of November amounted to  115,261 tons, 112,763 tons from  Phoenix and 2498 tons from foreign  properties, as follows :  Snowstorm, Idaho 1521 tons  Belcher, Republic   563    "  Ben Hur    .���"        322    "  Lone Pine    "            28    "  j     Arlington, Slocan  ....     64    "  I Jolly Dancing Parly  One of the jolliest dancing  parties  that have taken place  in   Phoenix for  many   a  day   was   that   given   at the  Snowshoe   mine   Thursday    evening.

Attention is called to the fact that  11,000 tons of zinc thus far this year  have been shipped from Kootenay  points to the United States, and that  the Payne tariff imposes a duty of 1  per cent the pound of zinc contents of  ores carrying more than 25 per cent of  zinc. The fact is emphasized that  Canada imports annually 7000 tons of  zinc products valued at above $750,-  000. The convention agreed that it is  highly important that a government  smelter should be established capable  of treating ores sufficient to supply the  Canadian markets.

TO CURTAIl COPPER PRODUCTION  large Interests In Canada and United Statea  to Effect Reduotlon  N.Y.���From now on a reduction in  copper production of this country,  Canada and Mexico can be looked  for. This will be due to a determination on the part of the large copper  mining companies lo limit production  to consumption so far as it is within  their power to do so..  The large copper interests will effect  a curtailment ranging from 5% to'10%  which will serve to reduce production  as well as cut down the large surplus  stocks in this country and abroad.  While there has been no agreement  among the large copper producers to  curtail production, it has been decided  by a number of the largest interestF,  iudividually, not collectively, to conform production to consumption, as a  result oJ which many of the large mines  of the country, including the Amalgamated and Guggenheim properties will  curtail production 10%.  Such action should naturally have a  stimulating effect uton the price of  copper in the near future.  Loe'it Option'Puzile  Local option returns continue to  come in slowly, there being ten places  yet to heanfrom. In most of the'con1  stitueneies the total number of' b illots  cabt for the candidates have as yet to  be computed.  The final result as to whether the  referendum has the necessary fifty  per cent, may not be known for some  weeks. In fact it will not be ''definitely,  settled until after the rerount upon  spoiled ballots' to be held before  County Judge Lampman   in   Victoria*.'
