MINGLING BUSINESS  WITH PLEASURE  Chartered   Steamer   Princess  Beatrice.  The party that left Vancouver last  Saturday for a ten days' cruise of  northern waters, carrying some Boundary gentlemen, was one of no little  importance, it appears. VV. T. Hunter  and VV. C. Thomas, of Greenwood,  were among the guests. Among others  in the party of a score or more were  A. J. Jiarling, president of the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul; F. A.  Blackwell, president of the Idaho &  Northern; Stanley Field, nephew of  the late Marshall Field, of Chicago;  Potter Palmer, Jr., of Chicago; thos.  S. Ives, LaCrosse, Wis.; J. E Corlett,  M. J. Powell, R. C. Price and Henry  Dekner, of Iowa and A. Butler of  Seattle.  Harry Hunter, a brother of Chas. D.  Hunter, of Phoenix; XV, T. Hunter, of  Greenwood, and Bert and James  Hunter, of Rossland, is purchasing  agent for the Chicago, Milwaukee &  S'. Paul road, and arranged the details  of the excursion. The fine C. P. R.  steamer Princess Beatrice was chartered for the cruise, leaving Vancouver  February ist. The members of the  party are destined for Moresby Island,  one of the Queen Charlotte group, and  will also go to Prince Rupert, where  they have interests.  The Moresby Island Lumber Co.  has already been formed, and some  70,000 acres of valuable timber lands  secured on the island of the same  name. It is from 50 to 70 miles  across to Prince Rupert, where an outlet for the product of the mammoth  mill to be built will be found. They  will look over their various holdings  and investigate conditions generally in  the north, the steamship business itself being one item on the programme,  besides sawmills, lumber and minerals.  The trip should be a delightful one,  wherein much pleasure can be combined with business by the chief members of the party and their guests.  SNOWSHOE SENT  OUT 400 TONS  Shipped Yesterday to  Trail Smelter.  For Purpose of   Bedding  New Blast Furnace.  Early this week Half a dozen men  were set at work at theiSnowshoe mine  of the Consolidated Gp. in this camp.  Yesterday 400 tons of Snowshoe ore  were shipped over the C. P. R. to the  Trail smelter of the':'operating company. It appears that! a lot of Snow-  shoe ore was wanted at ihe Trail  smelter for the purpose of bedding a  new blast furnace, and'as the ore was  already broken down in the mine, it  was a simple matter to run it out to  the ore bins arid load it on the C. P.  R. ore dumps. Thus eight 50-ton  steel cars were' loaded and shipped,  and the men were let'out again.  When the Snowshoe was in operation, the Consolidated Co. did not find  it needful to ship much, if any, lime  rock from the company's quarry at  Fife, on Christina lake, but since the  close-down in November, business  has again been done at Fife, and lime  rock sent over the hill to Trail. The  Snowshoe ore mixes well with the copper   ores   from   Rossland   mines, and  while the haul of over a 100 miles was  a long one, there were copper values  also to be hid from the Snowshoe ore,  something absent in the lime rock from  Fife.   -   . .'������;��� ;  Of the 135,000 tons of ore shipped  from the Snowshoe mine in 1907, 84,  000 tons went to the British Columbia  Copper Co's Greenwood smelter, under contract, while 51,000 tons/went  over the mountains'lo the Trail smelter. When the Greenwood smelter resumes again, perhaps in March or  Apiil if not sooner, the Snowshoe will  likely do likewise, unlesst the management should decide to do more shipping to the Trail smelter.  Living in Ihe Wlldernetg.  Last Monday and Tuesday Frank  MacFarlane, one of the old time prospectors of the Boundary, was in camp,  having come from some 50 miles above  Grand Forks, above Franklin camp.  .MacFarlane was the locator of the Mc-  Kinley mine in Franklin camp, as  well as many other prospects. He lias  been in that faraway section for many  years, amusing himself in the winter  time by trapping for marten and other  animals, making it a source of some  revenue to him when little else can be  done. He says that the Maple Leaf  is (he only group now workihg in  Franklin camp, having three men employed. The difficulties of development can be rioted when it is stated  that the supplies for the Maple Leaf  are hauled by hand sled some 14 miles,  the wagon road to Franklin camp being quite impassible lor teams at this  time of year on account of the four or  five feet of snow in that section. Mr.  MacFarlane is also interested to some  extent in timber claims up the North  Fork.  FORJANUARY  7433 TONS  First Month's Granby  Output.  And  Property is Not Yet Up  to Full Capacity.

JHoirriti1  International Coal On  Good Basis.  Last Payment of $56,000 Made  on February 1st.  ^^fficmacmariTEm^^^^S^^  rrtvrmvmrk^^  Last Saturday (February ist) the  International Coal & Coke Co. paid  its fifth dividend, amounting to $56,-  000. The dividends thus far paid by  this company making a total of $210,-  000 distributed in this way, have been  as follows:  February 1, 1907   $28,000  May 1, 1907      28,000  August 1,   1907      42,000  November 1, 1907     56,000  February 1, 1908      56,000  Total $210,000  Many residents of the Boundary-  have more than an ordinary interest in  the International Coal & Coke Co.,  for the reason that, at the time of its  organization, some four years ago, its  chief promotors were either residents  of or interested in this section heavily.  At tbat time much of the stock that  was for sale was disposed of in this  country, it being then known to be  closely'indentified with interests friendly  to the Granby Co. Those who took  their stock at up to 50 cents per  share are now receiving dividends that  are equal to 16 per cent on the cost of  the shares, the rate being now two per  cent quarterly on the   par value  of$i  per share.  The mines of the company are located at Coleman, Alberta, just across  the line of British Columbia, and are  completely equipped fot outputting a  very large tonnage of coal, with large  seams that will last for many years.  At present the output is at the rate ol  3,000 tons daily, with a contract with  the C P. R. that will last two or three  years yet. In addition the company  lias a large battery of coke ovens.  S. H. C. Miner, A. C. Flumerfelt  and H. N. Galer, all of whom were  actively indentified with the Granby  Co. a few years ago, are at the head of  the International Co., and the success  of the International is largely due to  their efforts, Mr. Flumerfelt being the  president and Mr. Galer the manager of the company. The superintendent is George H. Fraser, who was  at one time also with the Granby  mines. These gentlemen are also in  control of other mines in the Crow's  Nest section, including the Royal  Collieries and Alberta Coal & Coke.

Assets over Liabilities   $671 76  282 50  8,500 00  31,194 32  For the month of January the  Granby mines shipped to the company's  smelter, at Grand Forks, a total of  74,203 dry tons of ore. This output  was the largest for the Granby mines  for several months, and only three  times during the year 1907 was it exceeded, although previous to that in  June, 1906, it had run up to over 60,-  000 tons, when things were particularly  propitious.  The January output, however, does  not begin to represent what the Granby  Co. can do now, as during most of the  month the entire battery of eight blast  furnaces was not in full operation, it  requiring a little time, after resumption,  to get them all in blast. Although I  February is two days shorter than Jan-|  uary, there is every reason to expect a  larger output for the second month of  this year than for the first.  Figuring in pounds of fine copper,  and basing the estimate on an average  content of 24 pounds of copper to  each ton of ore, Granby's ' output for  January should be over 1,780,000  pounds of the red metal, it requiring  from two to four months to secure exact  returns from the refinery in the east.  On an output of 90,0000 tons of ore  monthly, the returns would be over  2,000,000 ponnds of copper each 30  days. Now that both mines and  smelter are in complete and full operation, the product hereafter, not allowing for unforseen contingencies,  should be around the 2,000,000 pound  mark per month.  $2  5��  s  40  5��  00  ��7  5��  10  00  10  00  1  *5  12  10  108  20  3  6J  16  00  RESULTS AMONG THE CURLERS.

Altogether there are three silver cups  to be competed for among the curlers  of Phoenix. That of Pither & Leiser  is now on for competition, and after  this is decided, it is the intention to  biciifc up the rinks, choose over ..again,  and start a competition for the silver-  cup offered by the Toronto Silver  Plate Co. With this trophy also will  go individual prizes given by President  J. A. Morrin, of the curling club, consisting of solid gold stick pins.  Last night the competition for the  Burns cup, between curlers of Greenwood and Phoenix, was started. It is  the intention to play eight games on  Fridays, two teams from each place,  each playing two. Last night the  Greenwood curlers were here and two  teams from Phoenix also went to  Greenwood. In case of a tie in the  series, the skips of the rinks will play  it off, deciding by drawing where to play.  Following are the results locally since  the last publication of same, few games  being played last week on account of  several curlers being absent at the  Nelson bonspiel:  Brown    won from George,    126  ���; RECEIVED THE AUDITOR'S REPORT.

H. Appelton,  Donald McLean and John F. Wilk-  strom of Spokane, for a consideration  of about $30,009. In speaking of the._  purchase Dr. Appelton stated to the  Spokane Chronicle:  "We believe we have made the best  investment which has fallen to the lot  of Spokane men in many . a day. We  have demonstrated, through the investigation of Engineer John F. Wilk-  strom, that there are eight leads on the  ground of the Little Bertha. The  company consists of 126 acres on the  north fork of the Ketttle river.  "Engineer Wilkstrom and I are leaving for Grand Forks, where we expect  to lay out a mill site and make arrangements (or installing a compressor on  the Bertha property. We.have made  arrangements to have the compressor  installed on or before March 1. We  have purchased a 10-stamp Nisson  mill, which will be in operation on or  before July 1.  "The values in the ore of the Little  Bertha run unusually high. Scores of  assays made recently show that ihe  ore goes from $30 to $200 per ton.  a recent shipment, of 500 tons sent to  the smelter gave returns of $55 per  ton. We expect to make regular shipments after July 1. Since purchasing  the controlling interest in the property  we have received several flattering offers  for the stock, but we are satisfied we  have a good thing, and intend to  operate the mine ourselves."  $15,813 03  G.

Mr. Mining Man, what do you think  of a mining company that employs 24  men, and of these but four are miners?  That is going some���is it not? This is  the   Monarch   mine,   near  Field,   of  of which Arthur Wheeler  is manager,  and the   Canadian   Concentrating   &  Smelting Co. is the owner.    'I'he statement is made by Mr. Wheeler and is  printed in the Golden Star, and seems  incredible.    The rest of the employees  are foremen, blacksmiths, loaders   and  weighers, teamsters, carpenters,   storekeepers,   cooks, assayers,   bookkeeper  and manager.    It   is stated .. that three  cars of ore will be shipped weekly, and  it will be interesting   to see   how long  the mine, be it ever so rich, will stand  this   sort   of thing.    It   is  just  such  business   as   this,   if we   mistake  not,  that eventually discredits mining. Even  ore, running 78% in   lead must   have a  limit on the expense of production, especially   when   the , mine   is   located  several miles from the railway.  j  OUR COPPER CORNER  r*  ���MATTERS OF  IVrKKKST   TO   THOSE   INTERESTED  COPPER   MINING    INDUSTRY  IN   THE  Shiloh's'Usc'Shiloh'sCure  The Great Northern has decided to  assimilate'many, of its  branches, and  call them all,by the one .name, of the  parent company.-'i.For.- instance,  the  Spokane, Falls "&' Northern, the  line  north' from Spokane to British Colum-  ��� bia, will lose its identity and be known  as the; Great tNorthern   simply.

Prlceo for 1908 Is Uncertain, but  an Advance  Is Expected.  J. Parke Channing, in a special  article in the New York Commercial,  says:  \Vhen the figures for 1907 have been  compiled by the various copper companies it will undoubtedly be seen that  the results for the year have been  eminently satisfactory and it is probable that the average price of most  companies will be found to exceed, 19  cents a pound. The highest price  during the year was about 26 cents a  pound. The highest price during the  year was about 26 cents in March, and  the lowest was in the neighborhood of  i2j�� conts in October. At the close  of the year electrolytic was about 13^  cents, with thy prospects for ihe future  fairly good. While the high price in  the early part of the year '.was deprecated by both producers and consumers  alike, the law of supply and demand  produced the high figure. The consumers, or rather, perhaps, it should be  stated the manufacturers of copper,  seemed to think that there never would  be a let up and frantically bid almost  almost any price for the metal.  Not until the recession of the stock  market in March was it realised that  the country was. not in a position to go  ahead with the enterprises, which had  already been laid out, nor to undertake new commitments no matter how  much they might be desired. Undoubtedly at that time the majority of  the producers failed to realize the condition of affairs and assumed that the  consumers w��re simply holding off for  lower prices. Production, therefore,  continued without decrease, no sales |  were made and the metal continued to  pile up until July,.by which time the  true conditions of aflairs began to be  appreciated by producers, and then for  ihe first time in the history of the  metal, practically without any concert,  1 lie production began to be restricted.  It is unfortunate that this restriction  did not occur two or three months  earlier, but as it is the result has been  eminently satisfactory. The stocks  have largely been eliminated and indications point to the probability that for  some time to come the production will  not be greater, than the market can  properly take care of.  Basically, the copper situation is no  different than it was a year ago. The  legitimate demand is and will continue  to increase as electrical development  continues to increase in the country,  and at the same time the production  will only keep pace with the increased  demand.  What the average price of copper  lor the year 1908 will be is hard to  tell, though it seems quite likely that  before the end of the year, 16 or even  17 cents may be expected for the  metal. While the law of supply and  demand undoubtedly governs the immediate price of copper, ultimately the  cost of production is one of the pnn ���  cipal items. The cost of producing  copper has unquestionably advanced  two cents in the last three or four  years, and therefore to make even the  same returns, a price of 17.cents today  would only equal that of 15 cents three  or four years ago, which at that time  was considered a nominal price for the  consumer and producer alike. It  seems quite likely that there, will be no  increase in the production, by any of  the closed mines until copper shall  have gone beyond 15 cents.  LOVERS OF GOOD TEA  ��� Use ���  I. H.

A number of men from the Boun  dary have recently gone to Field, on  the main line, where McDonnell &  Gzowski have the work on the two  tunnels which they are driving well  under way. These tunnels will each  cut down the grade which the trains  have to climb in that portion of the  road, 70 feet, or a total of 140 feet.  Each tunnel will be spiral in form, and  one portal will be 70 feet higher than  the other. One tunnel will be 2,800  feet in lenth and the other.3,260 feet.  In making the approaches, 6,000,000  yards of rock will have to be removed.  The tunnels will overcome a difficulty  which has hitherto handicapped the  railway at this point, inasmuch as it  takes from four to five locomotives to  haul trains up the hill at thispoint.

James   Breen,   well   known  in the  Boundary as the one time manager of  tin: Dominion Copper Co., recently  had the billowing to say of the market for copper:  "Natural laws of supply and demand  alone govern the price-'of. the meial;  ibt; surplus which drove the price  down can not be far Irom exhausted  now, and when it is-we', must look to  the general business situation Tor a re-?  cowry.  "In round numbers we make about  900,000,000, pounds of copper in this  country, of which ��-u export only a  third. Presuming then that our do.  niL-stic consumption is at present cut  in two, and the Butte camp can almost furnish that, there is no market  fur the remaining 300,000,000 pounds  until the general industrial business ol  the country is restored to a normal  basis. ..'���'���".  "There  are  abundant   indications,  however, that this business  revival has  set  in,  and  the demand and  cortes-  ponding price for copper will undoubtedly increase in proportion.    It is not  far from the present market prices  to  15-cent copper and   there is plenty of  profit in the  copper   business  at that  figure.    Any  one   who can not make  money on 15-cent  copper  had   better  keep out of the business.  or   any other  ailment  need'  not    trouble    you    if   you  ��� ninintain     your     vigor   by  sound,    w'holcs'inie   food.

A year ago November a dastardly  outrage was commuted, at'.the railway  camp of Niagara, a few miles above  Grand Forks, a hotel building being  blown to atoms and a young girl being  Hurled into eternity. It was an Italian  navvy camp, and the perpetrator escaped across the line. It was thought  that he would never more be heard of,  but the arm of the law, especially in  British Columbia, is long, as the following dispatch shows.  Salt Lake City, Utah, Jan. 31.���  After his arrest here today Francisco  Ciddio, an Italian, confessed that it  was he who set off 100 pounds of  powder in a hotel at Niagara, B. C,  November 18, 1906, wrecked the liotel  and killed the daughter of the hotel  keeper. He was taken into custody  by a local officer, accompanied by  William Devitt, chief constable of the  provincial police at Nelson.  Jealous fondness for the landlord's  daughter, accentuated by drink,  promted Ciddio's crime. He escaped  from Niagara in a load of hay and  traveled from state to state, hoping to  elude the vengeance of the law. He  had remained unmolested in Salt Lake  city for nearly a year, and was taken  so completely by surprise that he made  no effort to deny either his identity or  his guilt.

"Don't trifle with a cold," is  advice for prudent men and women.  It may be vital in the case of a child.

If they are maintained  through the changeable weather of  autumn, winter and spring, the chances  of a surprise from ordinary colds will  be slight.

This gives rise to a discharge, or at,  least a stuffiness of the nasal passages.  Sometimes fever accompanies the first  attack, also a feeling of languor, dullness and aching of the bones.  If no attention is paid to it, tho  mucous congestion is liable to spread  down into the larynx,producing hoarseness and into the bronchial tubes, producing a cough.  Even when this occurs, many people  pay no attention to it.  Under such circumstances, tho congestion is liable to become chronic, producing a condition of tho mucous membranes .known as catarrh. Catarrh lasts  ��������������� a anindeflni to  CURE  COLDS���     j time.     Catarrh  PREVENT CATARRH, j is essentially a  ���"���"^��������������>���~" chronic   condi  tion and does not leave except something is done to relieve it.

But, even in cases where the cold has  been neglected and " hoarseness or a  cough has developed; Peruna can be relied upon to* give prompt and permanent relief.
