Concerns ���  Many Now Extinct  Dividends paid by mining' companies operating in the territory tributary to Spokane for 1915 amount  to $10,560,060, according to revised figures secured from the  different corporations, and the grand  total of the disbursements since lhe  first concern began distributing  profits in the north-west aggregate  $83,285,455. Of the current year's  disbursements metal producing com  panies are credited with $10,511,-  250, and their share of the grand  total for years past and to date 'is  $80,036,811, while the coal and  coke companies in - "Alberta and  British Columbia have paid $3,248,-  ' ,7 O     ' ' .  568 since they began operating.    .  Many companies included in the  list have suspended operations or  their identity has been submerged  in other companies that acquired  them, but the statistics secured from  reliable sources are regarded as  authentic.  It is generally estimated that not  less  than .one-third, of   the   gross  earnings of mining companies are  distributed in dividends, and if this  estimate is correct the corporations  included in the report have produced  in mineral wealth not less than  $250,000,000, the difference between  the distributed profits and the gross  earnings Raving been expended for  equipment, labor and supplies.

Hurry, Scurry for School  The blackboard of the local school  .stretched out goblin hands for the  children Monday morning, and the  homes of some 180 children presented a peculiar mixture of mirth,  excitement and sadness. Scribblers,  pens and pencils seemed to .have a  happy faculty of being lost when  wanted, and many a tired and perspiring mother heaved a sigh of  relief when the last member of age  departed for.school. The older.girls  tpok it as a matter of course,   while  ��� There never 'was a' time' in the  history of the- industry of the industry when investors' and traders  could buy copper shares with as  full assurance of big dividend increases and coming substancial price  advances as they can now. Owners  of good copper stocks'should" continue to hold them for dividends or  until they sell 30 to ';50 per cent  above the present price'level.  Notwithstanding that: the  copper  mines of the United States curtailed  their production 40 to   5O  per   cent  during the first five months   of this  year and sold the first quarters output   at prices   ranging  from    13^  cents  in January , to   15   cents   .in  April,  their  aggregate  profits    for  1915 will   probably   be   the   largest  for any one year in   the  history   of  the industry.     Production from   the  mines of this country   alone   should  amount  to    1,200,000,000    pounds  this   year   and   the   average   cost  should be slightly under 10 cents a  pound.    The average price received  for all copper sold this year will   be  close to 18  cents,' resulting   in   an  ag,g"regate  profit  of around   $96,-  000,000. ,  ���ii  Wife Who   Pleaded   His  Release Knifed by the  Father of Family's.,/  *-1 ^%#  '* ����r -A   ���**,  ���Y-jM-tfv' JfijUSf  ,.y\ *���   j.

Mining Notes of British Columbia  mm, Thompson & Co,  Phone 9 and 5  The Horn Silver mine at Hedley  is shipping ore,  Gold mine output in Washington  state shows a decided decrease this  last year.  Tungsten ore has advanced over  600 per cent ih'price in the last six  months;  The Granby smelter is running  seven of its furnaces full blast at  Grand Forks.  The first car of ore, 45 tons, was  shipped from the Aberdeen group  of copper claims on Monday at  Merrit.to the Tacoma smelter.  Gordon McClennan is bringing  three tons of antimony ore from  his Babine claims to New Hazelton  this week. This constitutes the  initial shipment of this class of ore  from the north. It is understood  the government is to purchase the  ore at the railway.  The Chicago group of four claims  on the railroad side of the Rocher  de'Boule mountain, near Hazelton,  has been bonded to M. T. Watts  and Howard D. Camero'n for an  Edmnoton syndicate. The price  was $15,000 and a stock interest.  Jurdine, Jones & Deane were the  sellers.  An Australian company   proposes  to divert the Bridge river situate in  Lillooetv by a tunnel through the  Mission mountain and use the overflow of the water for generating  power at the same time mining the  gravels in the present channel of  the river for their auriferous gold  values. Engineers have for some,  time been engaged on   the  scheme.  A prospector who has been going  to and from Edmonton for the   past  few years brings reports of  an   en-  couiaging character as   to   a  pros-  pective new placer goldfield   at   the  headwaters   of  the    Nahini    river,  according to   the   Vancouver   province.     Situate on a tributary of  the  Laird,   the   country   is   difficult   of  access.     It has been recognized   by  geologists for many years that conditions are favorable in  the   section  referred to for such   a strike.     The  conditions are much the same as in  the early days of the Yukon���difficulties of access and   transportation  and frozen grounds.     In   a   lecture  before the chamber of mines atVan-  couver two years ago,  Mr.   Charles  Camsell,  of  the   staff  of   the   geological survey  of  Canada,   refrred  to the possibilities of a   goklfie .1   in  the section referred to, so   thai   developments there are  worth   w itch-  in jr.  ac  ac  For Two Weeks Only  Before Stocktaking  Pat-a-Cake  Shortcake  Billiken  Golden Puff  Connaught  Coffee Sandwich  Ginger Nuts  Russet Sandwich  Digestive  Coronation  Chocolate Sandwick  ���  .

' Ask any of your former representatives why they failed to welcome  the Phoenix participant in the battle  of Ypres, and their excuses are  eribugh to choke a cat. One is that  they never knew he"[was "returning  to Phoenix; the other, "wait until  the rest return.  The first  is  a  direct -evasion  of  what they know to be the truth���of  what all Phoenix knew���that Porter  was to be expected  any  day.    Did  they  expect  him   to announce  his  arrival with a fanfare  of trumpets?  Did the Pioneer give thenva chance  to make1 preparations  before making   mention fof J:heir" ^lassitude?  Was the subject" broached  by  any  residents?    It  was,   and  all   week  the  same   answer    given:    "Wait  until    they     all     return."    Bright  heads!   Fertile brains!   Gfeat!   We  are the people!    Is it not enough to  make a returned soldier  wonder  if  his efforts were appreciated.  Meantime,-the others, if they do  return safe, might tak.e it into their  heads to live somewhere else. It is  a high altitude inPhoenix, perhaps  this accounts for the Coldness of the  reception.  In Revelations we read of seven churches, seven candlesticks, seven  stars, seven trumpets, seven plagues, seven thunders, seven vials and  seven angels. It is a long way from Revelations to the year 1916 in  Phoenix, but the fact remains, nevertheless, that seven citizens are to be  nominated next week to fill the vacancies caused by the retirement of  last year's council. One does not have to go abroad to gaze upon the  seven-wonders of the world���we have them right at home in Phoenix.  From the regularity with which they held their council meetings, and ���the  attendance ofthe public, one might well enlighten them to seven churches  as regards attendance. To enlighten them to stars or candlesticks would  be sacrilege, while the trumpeting and thunder from the seven "angels"  last election day was enough to lead the electors to mentally say during  the year: "May the seven plagues take them." It is a foregone conclusion tbat as regards the use of brains, they kept them well corked in  seven vials���especially in such matters as extending welcome to a returned  soldier on behalf of the citizens of Phoenix. Yea, verily, they sure  proved a revelation of do-nothingness.  IV '  X  < ���"  st  piC  M  mm-  ' *vWe received somewhat of a  stir  J- *��� -.    7" ^  prise Monday morning from one' of  the', 'residents who informed us  . in public that the introductory  article to the few items reluctantly  Igiven us Jbyt'a ^ returned  soldier  on  the battle'of'Ypres was most  detri-  ���mental to recruiting.  .   ^��Those   who    might    otherwisel a livelihood  enlist'would become scared and not  come  forward,"   was   one   of ��� the  ".comments.    In  other    words,    we  ;were almost lead to believe that the  ^incidents picturing  the  battle field  \ were too realistic, and that  citizens  ��� of Canada lacked spunk.  We beg to  make  plain   the  fact  * that this was our -intention as regards portraying gruesome details  in the theatre of war; in other words,  make, known the braveness of  Phoenix soldiers.  While not aspiring to the cushion-  covered pinnacle of success reached  by Kipling with publication of his  "Gunga Din," still, we believe that  - truth endureth forever.  We take this opportunity to drive  home to this gentleman the fact  that everyone who enlisted ���  yes, and many more who will enlist  ���are oot afraid of "The word that  sickened earth of old.

Think of me crouching where the rats  creep,  Waiting for someone to sing me to  sleep.     -   ���  SYNOPSIS OF CtOAL,  - MINING REGULATIONS  Coal mining 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 yeaTs  at an annual rental of 81 an acre.

oundary District of British Columbia
Probably no district in the Dominion of Canada possesses so great an,array of
potentialities as the above.   The mountains .throughout its entire length and breadth,
are almost without exception mineraliferous, containing gold, silver, copper, iron and
other valuable ores, while in a few localities there  are  more than surface indications
of the presence of coal.
Its forest stretches are among therichest in the province, and what is of great1
importance, easily accessable to river and railway.    There is scarcely a square mile of,
it that is not either equipped "with high tension wires, or which could  not   be  reached
by the expenditure of the smallest outlay.    Not the least attraction from  the point of
view of the investor, is the sites for water power, which abound in this district.
Just at present an immense amount of interest is being directed  to the recent'
free gold discovery in Greenwood, while,in the same district is to be seen one of the
best equipped free gold properties in the west, a not inconsiderable-asset in these days -
of industrial depression and shrinkage of gold reserves.'   It is in this district where is
• situated the Phoenix and Grand Forks properties of the Granby Consolidated,' together with those of the British Columbia Copper company.    In the former camp, antf
surrounding it for miles on all sides, are-acres of crown-granted mineral claims, all"
awaiting the.advent of the investor.    The title deeds to these' properties,-thanks f a
beneficent series of mining laws, are unimpeachable, and if proof is' wanted  of the
' statement, let us'point to the almost entire absence of mining litigation in the courts
of the province.
The possibilities of the Boundary  as an agricultural and fruit-growing centre
are-also worthy of investigation, and  a visit   to some ^of its   spendidly equipped orchards will prove a revelation to the stranger.     The highways throughout the Boundary makes this section of the province the motorists paradise, millions having been,
.,spent'on the construction of government roads. "    '
;     .    -   No locality is better served with  railroads  than^ the Boundary  district.      At
.Pacific coast  will be commercially curtailed by the opening of the  new  K. V. V.
