Were it. not. for ,the, fact that  Granby's profits^are .being, used,���to  develop and/equip the 'Hidden creek  property,'the comptiny 'undoubtedly  would be paying dividends at the rale  ot\$lf50 to $2 a share^quarterly and  its stock probably would be selling  $25��H'-share' higher. The . money  that is'going into the Hidden"'creek  property, however,"should ultimately  be returned tenfold.

This  decision was arrived at only after  long and careful consideration of the  circumstances in connection with the  charges.

" 1  Word came down from the Surprise mine on Monday to the'1 effect  that the ore had been hit in this  first vein which'the long tunnel cut.  While this vein was small on the  surface a gang of men were put to  work drifting on ic from the1 tunnel.  They have gone 90 feet and have  encountered some very high grade  ��rey copper ore carrying big values  iu silver. The vein is getting better  now with eveiy foot ot work. At  the same time the long cross cut  tunnel being carried through to cut  the second vein, which promises to  be a big payer. The tunnel is now  in 440 feet and will reach the vein  almost any time. Supt. North and  other mining men who have seen  the property recently are satisfied  that the Suprise will be a good paying mine.���Omineca Herald.  George J. Novak returned a few  days since from Highland Valley,  near Ashcroft, where he has been  for two and a half months looking  after his mining pioperty in that  section, says a recent issue of the  Rossland Miner. In a chat with  him he stated that it is now being proved that the ore bodies go  down. As an evidence of this be  said that within the last three years  owners of properties there have been  exploiting at depth and have found  on,the McGilvray group, for instance, ore on a depth of 200 feet.  The Topnotoh group has four, feet  of copper ore at a depth of 125 feet  that will average 8 per cent, copper  and $4 in gold and silver values.  Tne Glossy group is being developed by a shaft which has reached a  depth of 40 feet, and" the ore runs  from $60 to; $,10CLpervtQnrV ..A, few  years ago these properties were not  known.

Trys New Ski.Course  The members of the Phoenix Ski  club officially opened the season on  their   new   course   on   Montezuma-  mountain  duringJ the afternoon   ot  New  Year's Day.    But, unfortun- ,  ately, owing to the absence of sufficient   snow,   the'jumping   from'the-  new 40ft.  scaffold was a hazardous  undertaking, and with the exception j  of E. Engen, none ofthe others ven- (  tured far,   Engen, hdwever, decided  to chance the risk of'a broken neck,  and took   several   flying   leaps that  averaged in    the   neighborhood   of  100 feet.    The intrepid jumper in-;  forms us that he confidently hopes  to add another twenty feet or more  to   this before 'the  season   is much  older.

One result of it stands in the resignation  of its editor, Mr. J. C. Walsh, who  has held the post for many years.  Mr.'Brierly, the publisher, however  knows what he is doing.  He is an exponent of a sane and  moderate imperialism. To the extravagances of the movement he  has at all times offered the most  effective opposition. But he recognizes that in the present instance  the right lines are being followed,  and that the aid being offered is  only what is reasonable and just.  He will carry with him a very strong  element within his party.  "The impression is strong upon  tbe people," says the herald, "who  have given the subject sympathetic  thought, that the hour has struck  when the unity of the empire should  be made manifest in the eyes of the  world; that Britain has been making  herculean efforts to strengthen her  naval forces; that in consequence  her expenditures upon.the fleet have  raised to almost incredible proportions; that even if the burden is not  too great for her strength it is one  ���that should be shared by the dominions; that a crisis is now existing in European affairs which makes  it of extreme importance that wbat>  ever be done by Canada be done  not grudgingly nor of necessity, but  willingly and unitedly.'' ;  SYNOPSIS OF COAL  , MINING REGULATIONS  .Coalmining rights of the .Dominion,  in' Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta,' the Yukon Territory, the Northwest Territories and in a portion of the  Province of British Columbia, may be  leased for a term of twenty-one years  at an annual rental of $1 an acie.

White, has  found  a way  to get  around   the  famous "joker"  in   the  Grand Trunk   Pacific  agreement by  which that  company were to ohtain  par  for   the   bonds guaianteed   on  their   behalf  no   matter   what  they  brought  on sale.      It is  a  remarkable fact that a bond guaranteed by  a government   is   not  considered as  good an   investment  as  one   issued  directly  by  the  same   government.  While it is difficult to justify such a  stand, the   fact   remains that  these  guaranteed   bonds'always sell   at'a  lower   rate   than   the direct  bonds,  but   it    is    has   never  before   been  agreed by any government of Canada in forwarding any enterprise besides guaranteeing the bonds should  also    guarantee    that   they   would  fetch'par in the market.    There was  nothing to justify such a guarantee.  In fact it was exactly  the thing that  should never have been guaranteed.  -But   Sir Wilfrid   was   weak   where  the Grand Trunk   Pacific  was' concerned and  Canada  has to  pay the  piper.  This year the surplus , revenues I  will he between fifteen and twenty  millions and Mr. White proposes  that the Dominion treasury shall  take over these bonds and hold  them as an investment instead of  permitting rhem to be sold at a discount. At present they stand at'  78. So far, as a result of the  clause, the government has paid to  the G.T.P. on less than $4,994,000.  This sum, approximately five mil-,  lion dollars, has gone into the coffers of the company as a direct  gift. It is lost to the country  There remains to be issued within  the next two or three years about  $34,000,000. After   allowing   for  it incumbent' on ^anyone in "possession of a British" patent to have" that  article   manufactured   in the "British  Isles.    The second piece'oTTieresy  is   plainly  to   be   seen   in   the new  trade  agreement   entered   jnto   between this Dominion and the West  'Indies, an  agreement that everyone  jmust admit is in the main a protective one, and must,we say it, signed  on behalf of the West Indies by the  Secretary of State for the Colonies  of one of the most 'dyed-in-the-wool  free trade administrations  that has  ever occupied the ministerial benches  at St.   Stephen's.    'Now  the  question      naturally     arises     that      if  such  a    commodity.,as   patents   ie-  quires  fostering    protection,   surely  there   will be   other  things  equally  as important  that   require the same  treatment  at the  hands of the government.     The same thing can also  apply   in the   matter 'of preferential  trade between   this country and the  West   Indies,    for    if   some    basis  has been found  in   this  case, surely  a wider scheme could  be devised to  embrace   the whole of the Empire.  However, an  example has been set  by   Canada   and   the West'Indies,  the result of which will Efe watched  with   more    than " curiosity ~by   the  politicians of both  the mother land  and  her Dominions across the sea.  1     -    ' '���  YOU PAY WHEN GUREI  Drs.

What Mr. White proposes to do  is from time to time to buy these  bonds, which, as stated above, are  guaranteed absolutely as to principal and interest by the" Dominion  government.

The full text of Mr.  White's resolution is as follows:  "That it is expedient to authorize  the governor-in-council to purchase  at par from the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway company such of the  three per cent bonds of the company, the issue and sale of which is  provided for by chapter 98 of the  statutes of 1905 and the deed of  trust set forth in scheduje 'A' to  said chapter 98 as maybe unsold at  the time of passing of an act that  may be founded on this resolution."
