Reports that tlie directors of J the  Granby Smelter company would  take up their monthly meeting1 ��n  New York this week the question of  bonding the 'company to finance  further operations at Hidden -creek'  and Granby bay lhat, they might  resume dividend payments, proved  to be a canard, according: to advices  from New York this* week.    ��� -  The message states that the mattet  was not taken up at all, and that  the entire conference was devoted  to perfecting the details of' jthe formerly announced plan of financing  the Hidden creek project Irom the  earnings of the Granby company.  This means there will be no changes  in the situation for an indefinite  period, "although later the resumption of dividend disbursements, suspended in December, 1910, up to  which date $4,048,630 had been  divided among the stockholders,  will be taken up.  The Granby bay smelter, which  will have an initial capacity of 2000  lo'ns daily, will be ready to operate  by July 1, unless unforeseen delays  ensue. Transportation facilities are  already provided, five separate  steamship lines having recently placed ocean going vessels in service  between the new smelter town and  the ports of the world, and a wharf,  capable of berthing the largest  vessels that float, fully equiped with  ore docks and loading machinery,  was completed by the Granby company Aeveral months ago.

Marshall,  co-owner of the Dunedin, four miles  from  Sandon,  was  in   receipt  of a  communication   'from' his   partner,  A.'r Shetland,   to, the. effect   that at  noon   on   Sunday,   a surface snow-  slide started   and   overwhelmed   the  blacksmith    shop.      Unfortunately,  one of the'men named Levi Mclnnis,  was in the  building  at the time ihe  slide   struck   and   was   covered   up  with the structure.'   Mclnnis was in  the slide eight  hours, and   towards  evening hjs   shouts were   heard and  his  whereabouts  located.     He was  in a  .slate   of  collapse when  taken  out, and the next day was rawhided  down to the  hospital  at Sandon, in  which institution he died.     The deceased   was a   well   known   resident  of Sandon and at one time held the  position of president of the Sandon  branch of the W. F. of M.  B. C. Mining  Illness of Ernest Miller, M.P.P.  Considerable genuine regret will  be expressed at the news lhat Em  nest Miller, member of the Provincial Legislature for Grand Forks,  owing to illness will not be able to  occupy his place in the House this  session. Mr. Miller is reluctant to  stay away, but his medical adviser  is strongly against his going.' Mr.  Millar has also expressed his regrets  for the few visits he has paid Phoe-*  nix during the past year, but hopes  on his recovery to be able to continue his accustomed peiiodical  trips. His many friends of either  parties will heartily join in the wish  for his   early   return   to   health  and  duty.   .���_���   B. C. Copper Treatment  _The* 13.

They will use   what   is  known as the "Flotation"  in   treating the mill   freed  from   tlie   mine.  This process is in use and has proved a success in Australia.     By it 100  tons of ore is   treated daily,   giving  a 45  per   cent  zinc.      Six   cars   of  silver-zinc   ore are   being   shipped  weekly. ,  With a total output of $105,220,-  990 worth of minerals B. C. stands  second among the ore producing  provinces of Canada for 1911. This  output averages $14.42 per capita  for the year. For 1912 B. C.  smelter receipts compiled to Nov.  16 show a total of 1,984,376 tons,  an increase of 20% for the same  period in 1911. The 1912 increase  over last year is about 39%. The  total values of all metals mined in  B. C. to date is $430,000,000.  In the lasl shipment from the  Phoenix some of the ore was sacked, and the remainder was shipped  from the dump, without sacking, in  bulk. Mat Trewhella, the lessee  of the Phoenix reports that the returns from the sacked ore, which  was carefully sorted, was $90 to the  Ion, while the unsorted ore in bulk  gave returns of $22 to the ton.  -Miv Tcewhella<4s very-mucrKpleased-  with,the-way the,Phoenixiis.turning,  out-and .expects "to.ship a' consider  GRAND FORKS WINS  FIRST HOCKEY GAME  Big Crowd , Watches * a  Classy  GanjeMFinal Score 7 To 4 In  "   FaVbr of Sulphur Smokes'  the finish, but in spite of everything  the luck was against the local boys,  who only madaged to score a single  goal in the last period.

' Resuming  play the puck see-sawed for some  time, narrow shaves being witnessed at' either end. The home  bunch now forged ahead, this being  brought about by a spirited dash on  the part of Neil, who passed to  Davidson, but the resulting shot  unfortunately missed the mark.

It  was during the second term of-the  match when the weakness- of the  Greenwood team exhibited itself  and gave the home seven its opportunity which they were not slow to  take advantage of, Geddes again  showing his fine pojnts and accounting, for another "four goals, Clarke  adding the other fbree, making the  bcore up the second period 8 to 1 irr  favor of Phoenix.

We un-  der.stand that influential pressure  has already been brought to bear on  Mr. Matheson with the object of  making him change his mind, and in  order to set at rest all doubt in the  matter, the mayor personally informed a representative of this paper  that his mind was made up on the  matter. He would not allow his  name to go in. It goes without  saying that considerable regret will  be occasioned by the action of  Mr. Matheson, who for repeated  terms has rilled the office with credit  to himself and_to the advantage of  the whole municipality. As far,as  is known at present no action has  been taken, but as the time is short,  Monday next being nomination day,  something will have to be done,  and~quicklyr  ~ '" f rjopponeats i  playMfollowed,;-,and,���the^��ndr<of-thp\fi���ai  ^J^r"  t J��on  e  A*|raothoritativc;reportfram Lake  Shuswap states that* saUnptes^otore _  of the game took .ajeaf outro��.theM*rl taken frem^the? vicinity   ofCehsta-  L�� "���vw   -tJi.j:��  J   17-7.^-,i��m���^-7j-.v-^.is_ .jWi-i^_J.-7V��* l"?-   >,���.

The   visitors  were   playing   strong now,   and   all  the resources   ofthe locals   became  necessary to check them, but eventually   an    opening    showed    itself  in the Grand Forks line-up   and the  homesters forged through aud a well-  aitnecl   shot    from   Neil    found    its  billet in   the  visitors  net; the same  pluy was repeated with a similar result a   minute   later  and   the   score'  was  equalized   three  to   three,   buL I  towards   the    end     ot    the   second j  term, Grand Forks loomed up again  and  scored   once more.     The score  at   the    end   of   this   series   stood,  Grand Forks 4, Phoenix 3.  The play in the last period proved  interesting, if not lively and the  scene of action was constantly  on the change with futile shots'at  both goals, later on the Forks men  became very aggreisive with the result that another goal was registered to their credit. Mann, the  Grand Forks point, then came to  grief and a rather long interval followed to allow him time for recovery. The rest evidently benefitted  the visitors for a minute after restarting their score was increased  by another goal. Lang's attention  then became fully occupied and in  spite of his old-time vigilance the  puck once more made its appearance in his net.      Fast play marked  -THE men who are  winning; applause  these days by "Making Good" are as a  rule, men who look their part as well as do  their part.

Mr. T. M. Marsh, the  gi-ntleuiun leferred to, lives at 101  leloriuiier Avenue, Montreal, and has  lived there for years. For twenty rive  years he had eczema on his hands  and wrists. The disease first started  in red] blotches, which itched, and  when scratched became .painful. Bad  sores followed, which discharged, and  the discharge spread the disease until  his hands were one raw, painful muss,  of sores, This state of affairs continued for twenty-five years!.  in that time four eminent medical  men tried to cure him, and each gave  up the cane as hopeless. Naturally,  Mr. Marah: tried remedies of all kinds,  but he,-.also, at last gave it up. For  two years he had to wear gloves day  and night so terrible was the pain ana  itching when the air got to  the sores.;  Thencahie Zam Buk! He tried it;  just as he- had tried hundreds of re  medics before. But he soon found out  that Zam Buk was different. Within  a, few weeks there was distinct signs  of benefit, and a little prcseverance  with this great herbal balm- resulted  in What he had given up all hope of���-  u complete curef And the cure was  no 'temporary cure. It was permanent,. 'He*-was cured nearly four years  ago. Interviewed the other day, Mr.  Marsh said: The. cure which Zain-  Buk worked has been absolutely permanent. From the day that i was  cured to the present moment I have  had no trace of ecze.ma, and I feel  sure it willjiever return."  1 If you suffer from any skin trouble,  'citfc out this article, write across it the  huiue of this paper, and mail it with  one cent stamp to pay return postage,  to Zum-Buk Co., Toronto.

Sir Richard's Review  In accordance with his usual custom,   Sir  Richard   McHricle,   prime  minister of the province, has issued  another of his New Year reviews or  messages.     The   review   is   an   exhaustive   one,   full of a sane  optimism, and few first ministers of the  crown in  this world-wide  empire of  ours arc able to  present with truth  so,glowing   a   picture   of  progress  and   development   as   that   recently  presented by  the  prime minister of  this fair province of ours.  1 One particularly satisfying  item,  and   withal   one   that   Sir   Richard  gives pardonable  prominence  to, is  tHat in   regard   to   the   securing   of  better terms for this province from  the authorities at Ottawa.      In this  matter  Sir   Richard   and   the other  memHers of his cabinet have   been  untiring  in    their  efforts    and   the  people will receive with unconcealed  pleasure   his  announrement   that a  satisfactory solution of the question  is at last in sight. '    '"  i    The minister also draws attention  to the unprecedented  expansion   of  the  fishing   industry and expresses  the hope that in   the not far distant  future the conditions will be reversed  aiid a white fishing population established on the coast.     This latter is a  Vnatter of moment now that Canada'  is   about   to  em bark   on   a   settled  naval policy and any furtherance of  a   scheme   that   will   disposses   the  Oriental ofthe control which he now  has of the fishing will  assuredly be  welcomed by the people of the'west.  Sir Richard also draws bdr'atten-  tion to the development "of the lumbering industry which' is 'increasing  in importance   with   a   rapidity that  i.s nothing short'of astounding.  The  development" of"  his    government'*  railroad   policy   ii>   also  mentioned,  and the scientific dry farming* investigation,   the   result   of  which   will  bring uiider  cultivation   large area's  of land that  hitherto  has been considered of little'or no use.' '      '  ���  In the  matter of  mining   the review has a rather  local interest, for  Sir Richard, who  in addition to  his  position as  premier,  also holds the  portfolio of Minister of Mines, pays  a compliment to   the  Granby company for their  extensive  operations  at Hidden Creek, which   he emphatij  cally states will prove of incalculable'value  in   drawing  the  attention  of  the   mining   world   to   the   vast  potentialities that  the   north offers  to that important industry.  Altogether the'review is a remarkable one, and its truth will be  endorsed by the people who have  placed the, destinies of the province  in the capable hands of Sir Richard  and his colleagues.  An Important Undertaking:  Twelve    parties    of    the   forest  branch of the  Department of Lands  are now   in tbe'field,   in  the valleys  of    the    Adams.    Salmon',     North  ThoM.rson, Omineca and Columbia  rivers, in   the region of-Mable lake,  and along, the route  of the G.T.P.  making   a rapid reconnaisance sur  vey of two, and  a   half millions of  acres.      The object of'.t'.it. undertaking is to get  a general and iinmedi-*  ate idea  im   the   natural   resources,  outside  ol minerals.  '��� The foresters  will note the topography, the bodies  of water and   water powers,'the extent of the absolute forest   land and  the agricultural areas',"the nature of  the soil,  and   in   a , rough'.way, the  amount of timber.  It i.s a difficult ,work, especially  considering the season, but the  men are going to .the task with a  will. It is* expected that in thel  course of a few months sufficient information will be on hand to make  possible the compilation of a map  that will prove a revelation to the  public.  Undoubtedly there are many  tracts of land, many water powers,  as, well as timber areas that might  be immediately utilized if they were  located with greater accuracy than|  at present.

Why be  persuaded Lo try something just because'it ia jiew, when you can  got a medicine that has stood the test of use for yeais, and which  has never disappointed? ' *     , *" --  Wo know what Myal's Cherry Oough Cure Is  Peter the Great it was who placed all  lands within thirty-five miles of  rivers in absolute reserve under the  control of the administration of  crown   forests. The   idea   was  mainly for the purpose of maintain  ing an unfailing supply of timber  for the building of the navy. In  1875 a royal commission was  appointed, and drew up a thorough  forest act, making special provision  tor the protection ot forests which  held back snow and water on the  slopes, and prevented the drifting  of sands over agricultural areas.  In every district there are elected  protection councils, and these have  a large share in the advancing of  the forest policy. Under these committees there are being managed,  just as farms would be managed, 18  million acres of forest.  In the middle ofthe  last   century  the income from the  domain   foi est  was $500,000; last year,   according  to preliminary information given out  by the forestry department, the government forest   revenues amounted  to  $42,525,810,    an   iucrease  over  the revenues of 1910 ol $3,912,913.  The amount of forest land   held   by  the government in   the   empire   was  approximately   474,025,000    acres.  The greater part of these   revenues  came from the forest land  in European   Russia,  totalling*   about $39,-  861,000, or over 93 per cent of  the  entire revenue.       The  government  forests of the  Caucasus   occupy  an'  area of about  8,000,000  acres  and  brought a revenue   of $903,065   in  1911.    Siberia   and   Turkestan,   in  which the area of goverment  forest  land totals about 228,640,000 acres,  (abont   the  same   as    in   European  Russia), brought in all a  revenue of  $2,054,335.      After  deducting    the  expenses iYom   the  gross   receipts,  which, according to the estimate  of  1911^   amounted    to    $13,865,888,  there remained the sum of  $28,659-  Nothing else will so readily - relieve a tight,  dry, hacking cough.
