 mSSSSBUCSS^^Bi  awiMiuii iimmiiiiwi  oeni  ion  Twelfth Year  PHOENIX,  B.C.,  SATURDAY,  DECEMBER 17,  1910  N0yEMMR EXPECTED  Midway & Vernon Money  TO BE RECORD MONTH  With British Columbia Copper  when Returns are Public.  Optimists on British Columbia  Copper who declined to be discouraged when the stock dropped to  below $5 per share, and who still  declined to take profits on the rise  to $7, are finding justification for  their faith in the future possibilities  of the property by the preliminary  reports covering November operations. While the detailed figures of  production for November are not  yet available, it is stated that the  month was the best in the company's  history, and that earnings wiHshow  that the slight setback experienced  by caving-in troubles in October  was wholly temporary.  During November all three furnaces, at the smelter were kept in  operation, with an average of 2,000  tons of ore daily passing through  the plant. The tonnage handled  would have been greater but for the  delay by the contractors in delivering  a slag-dumping locomotive. This  addition to the machinery equipment  is--expected momentarily, and_;_.the  handling: of the tonnage wjlt be  greatly facilitated when it is placed  in commission.  The November tonnage included  ores from the New Dominion property, which are being handled  under a contract for the treatment  of 25,000 tons. As the contents of  the ore already delivered under the  contract were lower than the mine's  average, the contract has been extended to cover an additional 25,000  tons, and it is expected that the  treatment of this additional tonnage  will furnish a better idea as to the  possibilities of the New  Dominion.  The British Columbia Copper  company has acquired 23,000 more  shares of the stock of the New Dominion Copper company. It now  holds between 63% and 64% of the  stock of the latter company. At  present about 650 tons of New Dominion ore is being treated each  day. It will be a month yet before  the 50,000 tons will have been  treated, and further arrangements  will have to be made between the  two companies.  Later ��� The British Columbia  Copper company earned approximately $35',221 in November as  compared with $17,500 in October  and $27,500 in September.

The famous Nickel Plate gold  mine at Hedley continues to produce  the precious metal in substantial  quantities for its owners, the Hedley  Gold Mining company, which in  turn pays to its stockholders dividends; with great-regularity, ..^Anoa.  ther dividend of 30 cents and an  extra dividend of 20 cents per share-  has just been declared, payable on  December 31st. >  The Hedley Gold Mining company  has only been in existence a little  over a year, having acquired the  property from the Marcus Daly estate in August of last year, and  with the current disbursement of  $50,000 will have paid back to its  shareholders a total of $203,520, or  profits at the rate of $1.70 per share  par $10. This is the fifth disbursement during the current calendar  year, although dividend no. 1, payable last January, was declared  from 1909 .operations.  Earnings have been running considerably in excess of dividend requirements and there is now in the  treasury a substantial surplus.  This gold mining and milling  enterprise is the largest and most  important of its kind at present actively existing in British Columbia.  It is in the hands of men of large  mdans and its local management is  experienced and fully competent.  Additions to plant and machinery,  provided for early this year, are now  nearing completion, delay having  been caused by the,, non-delivery  during the summer of large parts of  the machinery required to complete  the improvements decided on in the  latter part of 1909. , ;   ^f> :     : . ���  F. C. Buckless of Greenwood has  purchased a Buick automobild.  Copper at 13c. ;  Boston.���Thirteen cents is being!  asked and received for February  electrolytic copper. Notwithstanding the dullness in copper and the  temporary recession in price in some  quarters there are some ofthe largest  sellers of the metal, in position to  book big contracts for forward shipment, who have not been obliged to  lower their price and as a result  have continued to sell at 13c.  On Monday there were new orders  booked at 13c, delivery running up  to the end of February. Beyond  that time, however, there has not  been much copper contracted for.  Greater activity in buying-is expected with the beginning of 1911.  SPOKANE TO PH(ENIX  ON FOOT, $100 WAGER  Makes Trip Easily in Specified  Time,   Seven Days.  Ed. N. Clark, the Canadian journalist, arrived in this city Wednesday    morning    but   a   few   minutes  inside his time limit for $100 wager,  walk    which    he    undertook    from  Spokane  the  previous   week.     The  fwagfer *w-as-made, with-- Captain- Oj.  Larsen, an Alaska mine owner who  usually   comes, out   to    winter   in  Seattle  and   Spokane,   and   for the  distance  of  167  miles   looked  easy  money   to   the   pedestrian,   but   on  leaving   Grand   Forks  he  took  the  wrong track and found himself down  at Danville, Wash., having to cross  snow-clad hills for about  six miles  before he could regain   the Phoenix  track, which was covered with  soft  snow to the depth of a foot in places  and seriously retarded  the  walker,  who however gamely struggled on  and arrived here just in time to save  the  bet,  which  was conditiopal on  his    starting    without   a   cent   and  beating his way through.     This he  managed to do with the loyal assistance of newspaper editors en route,  who fixed him up at all his stopping  places.

While they are pursuing  a progressive policy in developing  their present mine and looking to  the future in acquiring other valuable  properties, the best evidence of what  they are accomplishing is to be  found in their figures for October  operations, when the costs were  reduced to $2.39 per, ton. This  figure���the lowest thus far attained  by the company���covered the cost  of mining, smelting and converting;  it showed furthermore a reduction  of 11 cents per ton from the cost  prevailing in October, 1909, at  which time seven furnaces were in  operation, as compared with six  this year.  Last October but one-half of the  smelter, four furnaces, was working  Following   the   change   in   control,  orders  were . quickly, wired   immediately.; ;to---.-h^'w   in ���*.two .additional  furnaces, so that since the middle of  October    six    have   been   in   blast.  The capacity  of the  eight furnaces  is 4,500 tons of ore daily.  It was intended, as announced  last week in The Pioneer, to be  operating the eight furnaces this  week, but owing''.to' a mishap with  the new settler with which an experiment was being made the furnace connected with it had to be  blown out, leaving seven in blast  this week.   .  Development work at the property  is being rushed/ and diamond drills  are kept in operation. At the moment drifting to the recently-discovered ore body which was located  by diamond drills is progressing  very satisfactorily.  Granby's cost at the present time  is down to about ten cents a pound.  _ ������ ;   Catastrophe in Coal Mine.  A terrible catastrophe occurred at  Bellevue, Alberta, on Friday night,,  when the Canada Colliery company's,  mine blew up. A large number of  men were working at the time, and  many are entombed. It is thought  that the accident was caused'through  someone lighting a match, the flame  being communicated to the gases..  More than forty, men were killed,,  and the work of rescuing others was  only carried on with the utmost  difficulty and by most heroic efforts.  The Government mine rescue apparatus was used.

Alfred Love, Publisher.  .Saturday, December 17, 1910  A railway company may be excused  for its passenger trains being late  when unforeseen circumstances prevent them from running on time, but  when a train runs on time only occasionally and the chronic delays are  deliberate and aforethought on the  part of the company, then it is time  for the public to demand their rights.  For the past three months the Great  Northern passenger train has been  arriving in Phoenix from half-an-hour  to two hours late, and the delays have  been occasioned largely by the com-  jiany "doubling up" on its train crews  and bringing ore dumps up the hill  with passenger and express coaches.  The train usually leaves Grand Forks  on schedule, but loses the time coming  up the grade. Ore cars are not built  to run on a passenger schedule.  This mixed passenger and ore car  service is an injustice on the travelling  public over the Great Northern to  Phoenix and should not be tolerated.  When a man is sold a first-class ticket  he should not be forced to travel on an  ore-freight train. The company should  be compelled to give the service it  charges for. :        -'     /  Coupled with the late trains, the  company is heaping insult on irijiiry>>ii  t'his city" by 'not properly lighting the  depot, and it is nothing short of a  miracle that an accident has not occurred. In order.to save.a few dollars  a month the company dumps its passengers, off at a point where they have  to scramble in practically utter darkness over a mixture of mail, baggage,  express and freight before they can  gain the-thoroughfare ��� to the city. It  also causes great inconvenience to the  company's employes and those who  have to transact business with them,  and were it not for the company's exceedingly obliging agent at this point  the inconvenience would be increased  ten fold. The dingy, candle-lit local  terminus at night is a disgrace both to  the city of Phoenix and the Jim Hill  system.  We are told the reason of no electric  lights is because they cost more here in  proportion than in other cities���about  ten cents a day more 1 And the Great  Northern is inflicting wholesale inconvenience on the public of Phoenix for  a paltry dime a day! If the railway  commission has any authority it  should make use of it.  The Great Northern company derives  a revenue of about $800 a day from  Phoenix business. There is no city on  the continent, we Venture, which gives  a railway company an equal amount  of business arid is forced to accept such  shabby treatment in return. It is time  the business men of Phoenix took a  hand.  Canadian Home Journal  A short time ago, in answer to the  question "What Canadian magazine  have we to take the place of foreign  women's journals?"..- The Montreal Gazette replied: "Write to the Canadian  Home Journal, Toronto, for a sample  copy," We are glad to give the same  suggestion to our readers. It is a magazine of splendid quality and interest  that must appeal to all Canadians.  December is a cheery attractive number, breathing the Christinas spirit, It  has very excellent stories: "The Turn  ofthe Tide/' by Virna Sheard; "The  Comforting of Eugene" Which must recall the 'many small troubles of childhood that seemed so momentous;" The  Unconfessed Cross" by Katherine Hale  "A Pound of Tea" by Marion Waltham;  some interesting chapters from Mrs.  McClung's successful book, "The Second Chance" and the serial."-novel  "Jeanne of the Marshes" by Phillips  Oppenheim. -  ������ "         ��� ���������.   ���  Where is Arthur Inabuis?

McDavis was never  dangerous for Lackie; he began to  totter in the third round, and only  brute strength and exceeding gameness  .kept him in the ring till the fifth round,  while Scotty was just getting in good  boxing form towards [the conclusion,  having been, nervous at the start. The  opera house was well filled with spectators. Lackie won a side bet of $200  and net gate receipts amounting to  about $260.

Secured by Engineer  over, the  Mountain to Penticton.  at  /, An excellent grade is being se-  j> *cured by the Kettle Valley Railroad  ? ~in the mountains on the east side of  y Okanagan lake, according to infor-  *;  niation received by the" Herald this  ��� *< i f of  ,],  Week.- ->\ '���".���'-���'  -.

Despite the  great   surplus   stock of the   world,  consumption of copper has increased  in a remarkable manner   during- the  past few years   and   especially   during the year just ending.     The business   of   electrical    companies   has  manifested considerable  expansion,  and jthe same can   be said  of other  copper-using industries.    The metal  is being used more extensively probably than at any  time in the history  of the world���and   likewise,   nearly  every line of business is on a broader basis than ever before.  .; Referring to the copper producers'  figures, it is evident that  the   tendency has been upward, notwithstanding the fact that  there  has  been a  falling off in the steel trade.   A year  or so ago the steel industry was operating upon a 95 per cent capacity,  but at the present, operationally  said not to be in excess of 65 per  cent. ..-Copper, however, has taken'j  the opposite course, and so has the  electric industry. If the General  Electric company, Western Electric  company, Westinghouse Electric  company and other companies into  the operations of which copper enters as an important factor, exhibit  business depression, then copper/will  assuredly follow suit.  As a result of more   genial  relations between the large  copper-producing   companies   of- the cpuntry,  the industry will be in a1 better   position to   bridge   depression   than a  few months ago,   when the different  companies    were    straining    every  effort to produce to the limi.t of their  respective capacities.     There is little  dottbt but that the   producing  companies���the large ones���are pledged  among   themselves to   restrict production to within limits that will  be  in accordance with   the   actual consumption.     Had they  continued to  produce the metal at tire rate which  it is possible for them   to   maintain,  the price   would   without   doubt be  much below the 13-cent point. "/,.  There has been little action of consequence in the copper market during the past two weeks. Some selling agencies are reportingfairsal.es,  but 1fc& heavy transactions in the  metal have ocdiirred. A lull follow-  ing the heavy building movement up  to within a month or two ago is  natural���no other result could be  expected. .����:<..  Porphyry  copper  companies will  be watched very, closely   next  year  for changes in* the   cost   of  production.   Reports so. far are quite favorable, but lower grade   ore   is. being  mined and interests not  friendly inclined toward the,porphyry concerns  declare that costs will be higher next  year than they have been  this year.  In-the meantime, nearly   all^ copper  companies    are   earning   dividends,  and unless prices exhibit a   material  decrease, which is not expected and  for which there is no   reason  in evidence at this time, there need be no  alarm over the inability of such companies to maintain disbursements to  shareholders.-���Denver Record;  Reductions  We have bought exceptionally heavy in LADIES'  UNDERWEAR of all kinds this fall, therefore  we are compelled to offer themi to the public for  a few days at a very low price, in order  to  reduce"  the stock. :   ���   *  Your requirements will  be very easily satis  fied, both in Quality and Price :  Winter Weight Cotton Underwear, Reg. 50c. now 37)4c  Part Wool and Cotton  Heavy Weight Wool  Pure Wool Ribbed  it,      ti  Plain Knit  ti              ii  Extra Fine  li              ii  Fine^Jderino  Combinations  <<              ii  il              tt '  Combinations  ((  It  11  a  u.  ti  .<  ((  <<  ii  ii  it  il  il  ii  it  ( t  Extra Heavy Combinations   S.oo.  756,.  now 60c  1.00  . now 80c  1.25.  now 1.00  1.25  now 1.00  1.50..  .now 1.20  2.00.,  .now 1.60  2.50  now 2.00  3.25.  now 2.75  S.oo..  . now 3.75  12 DOZEN NATURAL WOOL UNDERWEAR  TO CLEAR���  $1.00 Quality for  75c  $1.50 and $1.25  95c  As .good advertising is a vital'  part of store service, a good store  must be advertised.
