Coprcr Produce  " " Ir will.'be,interesting news to shareholdsrs to know that the directors of  the British Columbia Copper company are expected to resume the payment of  dividends early iri' the new year. * The company declared its initial quarterly  dividend of-25C a share and an extra disbursement of 15 cents, a total of 40  cents a share, on July .18, 1907. Since that time no payments to stockholders  have been made. Sortie "of the director's are in favor of paying two per cent  bi monthly, or ir2 per cent a year, and this course will prpb'aoly be adop'tedlif"'  the. January meeting ;of tlie board..,  The present highly efficient management ofthe B. C. Copper company is  reflected in the.splendid showing since resuming operations in June. From  the time,the company's smelter was blown in on June 8, following the shutdown which all. copper producers experienced during the panic, up to  November 30, the company earned net from operations $232,609, the first  month's run yeildmg approxinaatety $2 5,bl3o"w'hVcW^ri--Afcw��.,^{oUowine months  was pactically doubled.  IVhen operations were resumed last June the company owed some$r7o-  000, including $75,000 paid for additional properties, but this amount has  been entirely eliminated and at the preseut time the company does nqt owea  dollar and.has cash on hand of upwards $25,000. It is the management's  policy to attain a cash surplus of $100,000 before dividends are commenced,  arid the directors believe that this amount will have been accumulated before  dividend action in January.   ..--.��-..  The following sets forth the output, costs and net earnings of the B. C.  Copper company for the six month's ending November, 30th 1908.  Cost Production per Lb.    Net Profits  Laid down in N.V.

The Copper Curb and Mining Outlook of New York city had the following editorial reference in its last issue:  We are daily   receiving   anxious inquiries regarding the plans of the Dominion Copper Company.     Up to thj  present time the company has assumed  a rather secretive policy and only tlie  most miagerdetails areobtainable^vita  reference to the company's rather er.  tangled affairs.    We dfi   not- see  wlr  there should be any such reticence exhibited by the company's officials.    If  ��� the   financial condition   of  the 'company ��� is   at all   alarming,   the   shareholders are entitled to   be   advised as  to the facts, ind we consider that  the  officials would do well to at once solicit  tbe   co-operttion   of   stockholders,   if  such assistance   is   required.     It   certainly seems an   opportune   lime   for  the company to place itself right with  those who l/ought the stock at $2  per  share and .upwards and   who still   retain   their holdings.     The   policy   of  withholding   from   shareholders  information to which they are palpably entitled,    is  extremely   harmful   lo   the'  mining industry, and we are surpiised  that   the   Dominion    Copper   officials  have assumed an attitude of this kind.  We would certainly   suggest   to   them  that they immediately take  the stockholders into their confidence and disclose to. them   precisely   how   matters  stand both as regards tlie physical condition of the properties and  the company's  financial  standing.     They   will  find by so doing they will receive all  the encouragement they require, both  financial   and otherwise.     Unless   our  experience has been ot  no avail, however, they will discover that   their   entanglements will  increase just so long  as they refrain from adopting an open  handed policy with those who are pro  bably just as intimately   interested   in  the  welfare  of   Dominion   Copper   as  they   themselves   could   possibly   be.  We have a great deal of confidence in  the directorate of  the company,   and  while we may  be   considered   unduly  presumptuous, we are sure   that   they  will find it to their own interest and to  the good of the mining industry generally to adhere  to  the suggestions outlined above.  BANQUET TENDERED  MARTIN BURRELL  M.  T. R.Druinmond, formerly manager  j\ the Dominion Copper company  here, and afterwards in charge of a  property at Cobalt, Ontario, has just  been appointed manager of the.mines  of the Newhouse company, in Beaver  county, Utah.

Miss   Bertha    Heidman    as    Aunt  Hannah Timms had not a large part  in the first three acts, but in the  fourth she pleased everybody and elicited unstinted applause by her vitu-  perous denunciation of the whole  villiany of the plot; her voice and  make-up carried out the role splendidly.

Following is a copy of a circular letter sent by President Newman Erb to  elected 11  J. Pec  ember.  McSwain responded  to  toast "thl press" and made a neat  witty spech that carried   with   it  riumph of the   Conserv  anada.  ultimate  party in  th.  ���ml  lb:  liv:  'Along ihe Kennebec'  A Ne\j England comedy, comte to  l'hoenix Christmas night. The liece  is now in its fourth successful seison  and has met with approval wheiei'er  presented, and has been used as atext  hy two ministe-s in their sermons  The play ;s full of comedy hits. It is  comedy that a girl or woman can tuigh  :tt anil not blush at the same time.  The burlesque dliel scene in the third  act between /.eke Dasher and Bimlick  Tubbs is said to be one scream, from  start to finish aid live lother comedy  characters keep the audience in a  happy .frame of mind; All special  scenery is carried for tlie production,  and it is said lo lie strictly a scenic  production from first (act to last.  Some pleading singing and character  specialties are introduced during the  action of the piece, and "Along the  Kennebec''' sends its audience home,  feeling pleased and satisfied that  "Along the Kennebec" has been in  town. A band and orchestra has been  added this season to aid in making the  production   more   popular   than   ever.  Rhoenix opera house, Dec.  :th.  fisherman, looked the part his makeup reminding one forcibly of gales,  sails, whales and herrings.  Ralph Gilbert enacted a dual role  with credit to himself. In the first  act, as Martin C'ench, previously engaged to Lillian Brough, he has a mix-  up with Herbert Van Allen, is shot  and dies. In the third act he played  the part of Andrew Van Allen, the  rich uncle of the hero. This pare was  cleverly acted.  R. H. McCracken did not have a  very large part as Bill Clench, but  whenever he did appear he made gnod  in all he had to do.  To W. X. Perkins and J. Moir much  credit is due for the efficient arranging of stage settings and handling of  the scenery.  A   pleasing   feature   of   the   performance   was   the   rendering   of  a  line  program of music during the intervals  between   acts.     R.    K.    McCammon  sang   "Anchored" in  his   best   breezy  style; Mrs. Bellis filled the house with  melody by singing   Dr.   Parry's  beautiful   song,   "The Captain's  Daughter" ;  Mrs.    M.,   Duff   Murray   came   from  3reenwood and sang   "Sands  o' Dee"  n ber own inimitable and classic s:yle :  Vle.x Striitzel, our own violinist, gave a  nasterly;   interpretation    of    "Morris  Dance" and   Mosckowski's   charming  'Serenade".    The accompaniest  dur-  iig the evening was Charles  E.   King,  wio  acquitted   himself   in   his   usual  alle  and  brilliant   manner.     He also  pnvided the incidental  music during  tht   petfnrimnce   of   the   play    with  telling Affect.  To pioduce a theatrical event with  such success was not only the result  of much diligent practice on the part  of the performers, but much hard work  and careful planning by tie manager,  G. 1). Turner, who had in band the  entire airangem.et.ts of the production,  and to him is largely due tie credit of  the triumph of "'Twi.xl Love and  Money'' on  Wednesday  evening.  "We are informed that certain persons, associated with a former officer  of this company, interested in mining properties in California, Nevada and  Alaska, have recently sought stockholders of this company and have made  unfavorable representations concerning our properties and operations as an  inducement to some of you to part with your holdings in exchange for the  securities they had to offer.  You are cautioned to accept the statements, so made, with reserve.  Accurate information at all times may be obtained at the office of this co m-  pany concerning our operations, properties, earnings and  management."  Mrs. J. H.

Rossland has entered a new stage of  its existence. The camp is now down  to a solid productive basis and the  days of wildcatters and stock-promoters  have vanished foi ever, according to  Lime A. CanipbeP, general manager  ofthe West K^oenay Power & Light  company,,in a Vancouver interview.  "All die mines' are improving at  depth and the ore reserves have thoroughly established the permanency of  the camr," said Mr. Campbell.  "The monthly payroll is not far from  the $100,000 mark.   While the present  tonnage may have been exceeded at certain former periods, lhe net profits have  never bJen larger than at present.   The  confidence of eastern   investors m the  various enterj|ises is how fully restort d.  Quite recently ihe shares of the Canadian Consolidated-Mining'& Smelting  company owning the War Eagle, Centre  Star,   'the   Trail  smelter and   the  St  Eugene at Mb^h', have advanced from  $70 to over par, or $100.

In speaking of the prospective consumption of copper, the president of  an electrical engineering corporation  that,-in normal times, consumes 60.-  000,000 pounds of tbe metal in a year-  said:"   *     .."���"''.'���':.*������'���     -���'"'" '"  "It is more than 20 years since the  first central station for electric lighting  was built. Yet a little more than 10%  of the machinery of this country is  actuated by electric power. Nut long  ago, the president of one of the biggest  textile mills in New England read a  paper before a'club of mill owners on  the advantages and economy of the  electric drive. After he had finished,  one of the members said: 'If you believe in electric power, why do you  not put it in, and throw your old  machinery on the scrap pih?' The  answer was that he, like many others,  was working his machinery down to its  price as old junk, and then would put  in electric machinery."

PREDICTS 18-CENT COPPER.  President of  Consuming Corporttlon   Looks  for That Price by February.  Questioned as to the effect of the  prospective rise in the price of copper  on the electrical engineering business,  the president of a corporation which is  a considerable consumer of that metal  [said to a representative of the Wall  Street Summary:  "We do not worry about the iprice  of copper. Of course it is. going  higher. In my opinion it will be 18  cts. a pound in February. More than  one-half the' world's copper consumption is in small factories 'and shops.  The little foundries of our country.and  Europe use twice' as, much copper, in  the aggregate, as is worked up by the  great engineering corporalion's. Tt if  the little fellows that 'pay the high  pi ices'. My corporation did not bu)  any copper to speak of when it got  above 20 cts. a pound. We bought  largely at 16 cts. to 18 cts., and after  that we depended upon copper mines  owned by directors in bur corporation.  "As trade is going, we are- able to  supply all the copper consumed by our  electrical factories from our oivn copper  mines. One of our copper^mines is  doing so well in production that we are  doubling our smelter capacity. In 6  months this smelter will turn out copper at the rate ot 2,000,000 lbs. a  month. The metal costs usabout1 :o  cts. a pound loaded on the'ears at tht  smelter for a 3,500 mile haul to tidewater."

B., found a box of Zam-Buk, the great  sKin-healer. He was suffering from  badly chapped hands at the lime so  applied lhe balm. . He says:���' Z.im-  Buk eased' the pain and smarting,  healed the cracks and made my hands  quite smooth. Finding it so good, I  kept a supply handy, and hive since  proved it a really wondeiful healer. It  cures cuts, sores, or burns equally well,  and I would not  ike now to be without  a supply."  Mr. Towers is one of thousinds who  are glad they.heird of Z.im-Buk.  There is no skin disease it will not  relieve and cure. Its fame is spreading  everywhere, and it is now regarded as  Nature's great "first-aid in workshops,  on the farm, or in the home No tra,  veller should be without it. Every  home should have Its box ready for  usi. A little Zam-Buk rubbed regularly on the hands before railing each  night will k.ep the hands soft and free  from chaps, cold sores, or disease.  If you have a cut, a bruise, or some  iritating skin disease, which has defied  all ordinary remedies, apply Zim-Buk. 1<No a��� Mineral"Claims, nitmiie in Mi.
