'UlC'ttl (IDITO (MS k\.IK Mil COST Miff  To the Shareholders :  Your directors respectfully present  their report of the state and condition  of the company for the year ending  July 31, 1907.  During   the  year  there  has   been  spent a total of $356,714.67  on  improvements to  the smelter,  new development  work  at   the  mines,  arid  installation of new   machinery,  amount   spent. on   the  smelter  $173,098.73, and covers the cost  installation   of No. 3   Furnace  blowers,   a   complete  equipment  The  was  and  and  for  AUJiamuiAi.rXiujjja^  J 908  . We wish to thank our many  Customers for their Liberal Patronage during the year of 1907, and to  express the hope that, by careful attention to business, we may merit a  continuation of their Valued Favors  during the year just beginning.  We wish you all joy and prosperity, today and every other  day of the year���whatever of success and happiness comes to you  will make us glad.  electrical opeiation in place of steam,  additional land for slag dump, and; a  new water works system. The smelter  now has a capacity of 1200 tons of ore  ber day.  Owing to numerous delays beyond  the control of the company the complete installation of No. -3: Furnace  was not effected until the month of  June. This was a great disapppoint-  ment, as it had been expected this  furnace would be in operation early  in January. As high as 750 tons of  ore a day has been handled in this  furnace, but the most economical results will probably be secured with an  output of about 600 tons. The new  furnace is equipped with a mechanical  feed operated by electric locomotives.  This mechanical feed will be extended  to furnaces No 1 and No. 2, which  will result in a very material reduction  to1 the'cost per ton of smelting the  company's ore.  The hew water works system, in addition to giving i better efficiency to  the operation of the smelter, also furnishes an excellent fire protection, and  reduces the rate of insurance. >  During the year there has been  spent at the mines oh new development work and new machinery  a total of $i83,6r8;84-. The mines  are now completely equipped for: operation by electricity instead of steam.  New compressor plants have been installed at the Idaho and Sunset mines.  These improvements will result in a  decided saving in cost of mining  the company's ore.  The new development work, consisting of drifts and upraisings,  amounted to a total of 8519 feet. In  addition to this, exploration work  with diamond drill has been done  aggregating 1045 feet.  The physical condition of the  company's mines, both in the total tonnage  now in sight  and   the  equipment  for  mining the same, has been greatly improved during the past year.    A large  amount of development work has been  done on the Rawhide mine,  and   that  property is now capable of furnishing  800 tons of ore  per day  for an  indefinite period.    A very.large tonnage  is now available from the  Idaho,  and  will run about the  average  values  of  the camp.    A new  body  of ore has  been found in   the   Brooklyn.    There  has   not yet  been   sufficient  development work to fully prove  the  size  of  this body of ore.    The  80 ft., 150 ft.,  and 250 ft. levels are in   the ore, and  the values are showing very satisfactory.  The Brooklyn mine has always carried  good   gold   values,   which   is    most  desirable in these low grade ores. The  Sunset  ore,   which   has   been   used  la.gely as a   flux,   has   been  showing  better copper values.  In the report made by Mr. M. M.  Johnson to the board of Directors, he  says :  "The development of the various  mines has been very satisfactory, the  year's work having showed an increased  tonnage in all except the Brooklyn.  "The work on the Rawhide taken  in conjunction with the work done on  adjoining ground by the Granby Co.  has shown this property to contain a  very large tonnage of ore. The mine  can produce 800 tons of ore per day  for an indefinite time.  "The work on the Brooklyn has  shown some new ore on the north oj  the shaft, but was found so late in the  year that nothing definite as to its ex  tent or value can be said about it.  However it looks very encouraging  and I expect that it will mine about  the average of the former Brooklyn  ores; the last samples taken show the  average at 0.7% copper and nearly  $2.00 per ton in gold. Nothing below  the 300 level of the Brooklyn has as  yet heen found.  "At the Sunset outside of ore ex  trication very little exploring was done.  A short tunnel put in from the surface found the ore at a depth of 50  feet below our present work. No  further work was done to prove the  extent and quality.  "The exploring work on the Crown  Silver has shown the claim to contain  a considerable amount of ore  but  so  far has proved to be of very low grade  and.much broken up.    Sufficient work  was  not done to*' allow  of a  definite  conclusion or an estimate of tonnage.  "The'Athelstan work was  not   very  satisfactory^ 'resulting  in   finding  the  ore very narrow at a short distance below the good -showing' on .the surface.  Several hundred tons of ore  were  ex  tracred in the co'urse of tin's  develop  merit cdntainihg"$6;bo and $8 00 gold  per  ton     This yore   has   not   been  smelted.     : '���'" ;1:';i  '.'���.'"In  the  Idaho the  work  on  the  tunnel level ancTpn the 100 level   has  been very satisfactory,  opening   up  a  very large tonnage of ore.    The  most  satisfactory feature is the finding  of a  better average grade of ore on the 100  level than the  upfpef work  gave.    A  sample taken from the wide portion of  the ore on the 'loo level  gave   1.3%  and 1.2% copper and $1.00  gold per  ton.'    The  ore  found  on   the upper  level and on  the! surface  has  always  been figured at an average of about 1%.  "During the year the wages  of the  workmen were advanced 50c. per day.  On an output of} 1000  tons  per .day  this means an extra outlay of at  least  $125,000.00 peri-year, and increased  the cost of production     The central  compressor located at the Idaho mine  was fully completed and put  in  operation; you have riere a plant  that  will  furnish power forVall purposes for the  Idaho, Brooklyn and Rawhide  mines  sufficient for a 20(00 per day output.  "The Sunset I mine has been  equipped with an electric hoist and  electric driven compressor, these are  in operation and will be sufficient for  all requirements arid should reduce the  cost per ton very materially. The  saving obtained in the use of powder  alone at this point will quickly pay the  cost of installation. At the smelter  the No. 3 Furnace, Ore Bins, Crusher  Plant, etc., have- been.completed and  the furnace was ���'put in operation in  June. This month and the month of  July were used iri experimenting and  regulation. It has been shown that  a very large tonnage can be treated,  some of the days run being as high  as 750 tons. The question as to what  will be the safest amount for the best  percentage of saving has not yet been  determined. This furnace is mechanically fed aud when properly adjusted  as to tonnage, blast, etc., will reduce  the cost of operation; very materially,  and with I the two old furnaces put on  new plan of feeding, which can be  done at small cost, the capacity of  your smelting plant should be between  one thousand and twelve hundred tons  per day.  "On the whole, the.year just closed  has not been a satisfactory one in   the  mines or smelter, whether considered  from an earning or operating point  of  view; mishaps  and  interruption   were  so frequent that it was hard  to get  a  steady run and consequently difficut  to regulate   matters  nicely.    Perhaps  these delays and misfortunes were felt  the more keenly  because of the exceeding   smooth   manner    in   which  everything ran throughout the preceed-  ing year.    In an industry which  operates on such a close   margin,   a  great  deal    depends    upon  regularity   and  steadiness of 'operating.    A   little bad  luck, the prevalence  of extraordinary  conditions, may change the result of  a month's   operations  from   profit  to  loss.    Thus   the  operations  mishaps  though of seeming small magnitude in  themselves were very serious,, because  the entire plant  (mines  and   smelter)  was carrying an organization calculated  for a  given   tonnage,  and  when   this  output was interfered  with, as was the  case particularly in the last half of the  year, the efficiency of the organization  was reduced and a great  increase  in  cost per ton for extraction and  reduction entailed.  "The most serious misfortune was  the inability of the railroad company  to supply the smelter with ore. Early  in January we commenced to have  trouble from this source and operations  were spasmodic for several months  thereafter, not being able to tell from  day to day whether we would receive  ore enough to run the furnaces one  hour or twenty-four. Finally, in the  month of May, we were obliged to  shut down entirely and continue  closed for the whole of that month.  Repeatedly shutting down or banking  a furnace increases the expenses, both  in consumption of fuel and in repairs.  In the month of June the No. 3  furnaace was put in commission and  its regulation and experiments carried  on through the months of June and  July under the most trying conditions,  small tonnage reduced, inexperienced  workmen, lack of coke, etc., all went  to make a high cost per ton.  "By the installation of the power  plants with electrical applications, the  facilities for increased tonnage at the  furnaces, you have every reason to  believe and every right to expect a  great reduction in cost of production  both at the mines and smelter for the  ensuing year.  "I should expect your mining,  smelting and freight should not now  exceed $2.75 per ton of ore treated,  provided you run on capacity of 1000  tons per day. This tonnage your  mines is easily able to furnish."  10,090 Ounces of (fold.  During the twiivt- months the company has mined and smelted a total of  187981 tons, an average of 15665 tons  per month, from   which  3256.451005  of matte was produced.    This   matte  contained  10321.05  ounces  of  gold,  42606.81    ounces    of    silver,   . and  2910695 pounds of copper;   from   iis  sale $820,184,84' was realised   by the  company.    The  total  expenses   were  $740,002.72, leaving a  profit  balance  of $80,942.91.    This  result   was ob  tained in spite of shut-downs  of  the  smelter, aggregating  4271   hours  and  50 minutes duringthe year, or a  total  smelter* time   lost of three   months.  The greater part of this loss was caused  by  the  inability  of the  railroads'to  transport the ore from the mines to the  smelter, owing to the serious conditions  existing during the winter months and  from scarcity of equipment.  During the summer months the  railroad secured an increase in its  equipment, and in the future it is expected that this cause will be eliminated. 'The month of May was almost  a complete shut-down, owing to a strike  among the miners at the coal mines,  and making it impossible to. secure a  supply of coke. As profits can only  be realized by smelting the ores mined,  these constant shut-downs and interruptions have been very expensive to  the company's net earnings.  It is proper to add, in this connection, that great difficulty was experienced in the proper adjustment and  operation of the new furnace; and that  for this and other, reasons, recoveries  at the smelter, since the year ending  July 31st, 1907, "covered by this report, up to the time of the shut down  in October, have not been satisfactory.  Earnest efforts to remedy the trouble  were made and considerable improvement had been effected, when your  Directors deemed it best, in view of  the demoralized condition of the copper market, to close down the mines  and smelter in the month of October,  rather than to sell the company's assets  in the form of copper at the prevailing  low prices.*  This move was in line with the  action taken by some of the largest  producers in the United States, and its  wisdom is shown by its having been  followed by the other producing mines  in the Boundary Falls district, where  our properties are located. 'The company has on hand a full stock of coke,  ore and supplies of all kinds necessary  for the operation of the mines and  smelter; and .it is hoped that. a permanent and satisfactory market price  of copper will soon be .established,  justifying,the resumption ofoperations.  The propertys of the companies are  how iii excellent* physical' condition;  The improvements and additions to the  plant, contemplated in the last annual  report, are now completely installed,  and, with a fair average price for copper, the company should make a favorable' showing.  During the year  the  company  retired $200,000 of its outstanding First  Mortgage Bonds.   'The purchase of the  Morrison' mines   and   the   Athelstan  mines was completed and   title   taken  to these properties.    A   railroad spur  over three thousand feet long has been  constructed at the Rawhide at- a cost  of $23,311.26.    This   cost,  however,  wili be  returned  to the company  in  freight    allowances.     The    Morrison  mine has some development work, and  the ore will be valuable as a flux.  The  The Athelstan mines' ore at  the surface has shown exceedingly   rich   gold  values for the Boundary district.    Not  enough work has been done, however,  to prove the ores at depth.  The financial statement and trial  balance set forth the condition of the  company on July 31st, 1907.  Warner Miller, President.  MATHESON IS  AGAINMAYOR  Beit G, W* Rumberger By 38 Votes.

Small Fire Took Everything.  Tuesday afternoon fire broke out in  a log cottage back of the Granby No.  1 cottage on Victoria avenue, occupied  by Mr. Fisher and family. Mrs. Fisher  had but time to catch up the two  children and run out to a neighbor's,  the interior being a mass of flames and  doomed. The Fishers lost everything  they had by the fire, not having time  to save any of their personal effects,  and Mr. Fisher had been at woik but  a few days. The cabin was the one  originally built and occupied by S. A.  Swanson, and was owned by G. A.  Larson. A subscription paper was  passed around town for the benefit of  the burned out family, and a comfortable sum was quickly raised the next  day for the Fishers.  W. S. Macy went down to Spokane  last Sunday, returning during the week.  FOR   MAVOR.  I907  D. J.. Matheson   65  G, W. Rumberger j...  52  KOR  ALDKRMAN (3)���EAST WARD.  Robert C.

The blanks in the 1907  vote indicate that the men named were  not candidates last year.  This election was the most hotly  contested of any in the history of the  corporation, the total vote polled being  218, out of 307 votes registered, two  names having been placed on the list  Wednesday night by the police magistrate. Both candidates for mayor were  pitted against each other a year ago,  when Mr. Matheson won out by a  majority of 13 votes. This year there  was even more interest taken in the  election, with 101 more ballots cast  than last year. The returning officer  was City Clerk M. M. Stephens, and  the election clerks were J. O. Church  and J. C. Halsey.  Workers for both tickets were busy  all day, and teams were  on  hand to  bring voters to; the'pblls, "some coming  from  Grand   Forks  and  Greenwood.  When the results were^known, the supporters of Mr. Matheson held a torchlight parade, and the successful candidate was drawn throughWe" principal  streets of the city in a sleigh by many  willing hands.    'The polls closed at the  city hall at  7   o'clock, and  from   that  time till the  last   ballot   was  counted  there was a big crowd around the  city  hall awaiting the announcement of the  result.  Wednesday Nlfbt's Meetloc  Following Mr. Rumberger's announcement in the last issue of the  Pioneer, Mr. Matheson issued an open  letter to Mr. Rumberger in reply.  Then the latter replied again by an  open letter in circular form. Then the  spring poets, although a little ahead of  time, began to do business, and citizens and others were favored with a  bunch of poems (?) and limericks,  which were supposed to bear on the  attitude of the two chief candidates.  Mr. Rumberger called a public meeting at the opera house for Wednesday  evening, the only platform speakers  being himself and Mr. Matheson. W.  X. McDonald presided as chairman in  a satisfactory manner, introducing the  candidates.  Mr. Rumberger spoke first for nearly  an hour, presenting the reasons why he  thought  the electors' should  support  him, and criticising the   Matheson administration-of the past ,yeai.    Then  Mr. Matheson  had  his   innings, and  made the best possible use- of them  for an hour and a half, in turn picking  the   previous administration   of   Mr.  Rumberger to pieces, and demonstat-  ing why he believed  the  city govern-  I ment of last year should be continued  I in power for another term.    Following  ! this Mr. Rumberger  made his  reply  and the meeting was over.  Rarely has the opera house held a  larger audience, and quite a number of  ladies were present. .Asked beforehand if he would have any music, Mr.  Rumberger thought there would be  music enough before the evening was  over���and he proved to be an excellent prophet. It was a good natured  audience, and many of them thought  they had often paid a dollar for a show  there and did not enjoy themselves  half as much. One lady remarked  that she wished to go again when an  entertainment as interesting as that was  booked.  The new council will have its'first  meeting next Monday evening, according to statute.      ; ,    v.' ,  Boundary Mining Notes  The Phoenix scale of wages has  prevailed at the Crescent mine, Skylark camp, since January 1st.        ;  Nothing doing is the latest report  from the B.C. Copper Co.'s mine and  smelter, but there are strong  hopes.  Supt. Shaefer, of the Strathmore  mine, near Greenwood, who was here  this week, states that plans are being  made, when work is resumed, to run a  long and deep tunnel, about 200 feet  lower than the present tunnel.  Granby has been operating .six furnaces steadily all this last week, and  today or tomorrow another will be  blown in, the eighth to go in commission as soon as may be thereafter.  Three ore trains are going out daily,  two over the Great Northern, arid one  over the C. P. R., making about '2,-  500 tons per day, more or less.  The 20 seven-ton steel mine ore  dumps have.been safely sent down to  the 400-level of the: Granby mines,  where they will be used in getting out  a heavy tonnage through the Victoria  shaft. The 75-h.p. electric engine is  now running on that level, having been  installed by Abner Hillier, the company's electrician, and another week  or so should see that opening sending  out a large tonnage of ore.  Greenwood Dramatic Clab.  On Monday evening, January 27th,  the Greenwood Dramatic Club will  present the play "Confusion" at the  Phoenix opera house. The play is a  rattling good farce, and it is said that  the company has some excellent talent  to present it with. The Greenwood  concert orchestra of eight pieces will  also be present, and the presentation  should draw a good house, seats being procurable, as usual, at Tom  Brown's.  The company plays at Greenwood  on January 24th and at Grand Forks  on January 25th.  Latest Prices 10 Metals  Nsw York���Copper, electrolytic, $13.  62 @   if 13.87; lake.   $13.50  @ $14.00.

Samuel Newhouse, of" Salt Lake  City,<one of the most extensive mining  operators in the United States, and a  director of the Dominion- Copper Co.,  is quoted recently as follows:  "I predict that one year hence this  land of ours, which is just now so full  of unhappiness, caused by the uncertainty that prevails, will be filled to  overflowing with glad hearts and smiling countenances.  "I predict thai, within two years, at  least one section of the Union Pacific  railroad will be electrically operated,  operated, and I predict that within  ten years all the great railroad systems  of this country will be electrically operated; that the great rivers will be harnessed and that it will be possible to  ride from New York to San Fransisco  und other western coast cities in trains  every one of which will be shot across  the continent at high speed through  the agency of electric power*.  "The change from present depressed  conditions is coming soon.    There are  going to be better prices or copper,  for lead, for silvei, for zinc, and all the  metals. The most significant and potential evidence of the coming change  is found in the   unprecedented  orders  for  equipment:   that    are   now   being  placed by the great railroad corporations  and the work they are doing all over  the country in the mutter of paralleling  their tracks  and  otherwise  preparing  for the tremendous business they know  to be in store for the future."  Montana Copper Output.  It is estimated that the total output  of copper in Montana, for the year  ending January 1 will be 225,000,000  pounds. Of this the Amalgamated,  North Butte and other companies  which send their ore to the smelters at  Great Falls and Anaconda will have  produced about 210,000,000 pounds  and the Clarke properties 15,000,000,  pounds.  Claims to Lead Worla la Copper.  Figures compiled ' by the Board of  Trade of Phoenix, Ariz., and suple-  -mented by private telegraphic advices  from other parts of the country, make  it evident that the territory of Arizona  has easily lead all other districts of the  world in the prodnction of copper during the year 1907. The total value of  the year's output is estimated at $61,-  000,000.

It was  warm here while it lasted, and both  nominees for mayor seemed to be  confident of success, but of course  but one could and did win. The  city will now move on as usual, and  the camp will continue to prosper. 1  The annurl report of the Dominion  Copper Co.,   which will  be found  in  -this issue, is a reflection   of the disad-  vvantages under  which   the  company  -operated during  the greater  part  of  -last  year.    The same   drawbacks, of  course, were felt  by all   copper com-  .panies operating in this district.    This  .year, when they were all   in operation  once more,   it should   be possible for  them, and they doubtless will, make a  .much better showing.

Trail smelter last week - received 5,-  693 . tons--of ./.ore, from 21 different  mines.  Machinery for-the -Golden Zone  mine stamp mill is being hauled to the  property from Peneticton.  The Elwood Tin Workers' Gold  Mining company, owning the Silver  Dollar at Camborne, has gone into  liquidation.  Both the Vancouver and Hewitt  mines of Silverton are shipping largely, eight carloads .of ore being sent  out during the last week.  In December the Nicola Valley  Coal & Coke Co. shipped 3I593 tons  of coal, most of which had been taken  ���put in. development. There are 130  on the company's payroll.  The enlargements in the lead plant  at have now reached a point which  will make it unnecessary for the Consolidated Company 10 make any further shipments of St. Eugene lead  concentrates to Europe.  At the Consolidated Go's St. Eugene  mine at Moyie, 325 men quit work  last week," declining to accept the new  and slightly lower scale of wages recommended by the arbi'ration. board.  This week they 1 decided to resume  work.  For the year ending June 30, 1907,  the Le Roi Mining Co;, shows a profit  of ^3,582 4s 5d, under the adverse  conditions under which it operated.  The mine shipped in that time 131,  696 tons of ore, of a value of $10.49  per ton. Total costs were $10.02 per  on.  The Elmore Oil Process Company  is erecting a small mill for the reduction  of ore near Golden. Ore will be  milled on entirely new principles.  Some five years ago an attempt was  made to introduce oil concentrates into Rossland, but owing to the greatly  reduced costs of smelting since that  date and because of weakness in the  original oil reduction machinery, the  attempts inaugurated upon the Le Ro,  No. 2 aud the White Bear were abortive.

Despiteithe bad season, 1907, upon  the whole,! was in advance of 1906,  and according to estimatessprepared  from special reports sent in from all  over' the province,' the metalliferous  output for, the; year was slightly over  $21,000,006, as increase of $ 1,300,000  over: the previous year.  Placer gold, principally obtained  from Atlin and) Cariboo, has shown a  falling off of $200,000 from the figures  of 1906, which in turn were the least  on record for many years. The cause  of this has been the pieparations made  for hydraulicking on a large scale by  powerful companies, including the  Guggenheims.   ���-.������  Lode gold, principally coming from  the mines in Rossland and the quartz  mills of the Ymir arid Lardeau districts,  shows an increase of over a quarter  million dollars.  There was a1 falling off in both silver and lead products. Most of the  galena camps depend for their profits  upon their silver and zinc contents.  Owjng to a lack of smelting facilities  for zinc in the Kootenay little zinc  was mined. Altogether only 2200 tons  of ziric were shipped at heavy cost to  Europe and to the United States.  Copper shows an increase of$i,25o,-  000. There was a slightly lower production of copper ore in the Boundary  which was more than offset by increased  production in Rossland and at the  coast.  On the non-metalliferous side the  production of coal jumped from $3,360,-  000 to $6,490,000. '1'hese figures include theproduct of the whole province.  Coke shows a slight falling off,   due  1 to the troubled conditions of the labor  supply in the summer months.    Building material is  valued  at $1,200,000,  $200,000  more than the year before.

ADDRESS OF EARL CREY  TO WORKINCMEH OF CANADA  Ml ACT THAT Will TOUCH AND REJOICE THE HEARTS OF  KIMI!

"I know that your action in subscribing out of your hardly won  earnings, so large a sum as one hundred dollars, will touch and rejoice  the hearts of Their Majesties, for there is nothing that lies nearer the  hearts of King Edward and Queen Alexandra thun  tlio health and '  well-being of His Majesty's Canadian subjects, and there is no form of .'  work in which Their Majesties are more interested Lhun Hospitalwork.  "Therefore I say every man among you who has saved a quarter .  from out of his earnings, in order to help those who ivro endeavouring, ���  by means of Hospital, Sanatoria, etc., to conquer consumption, and to ,  banish it from the land, is following the example of our King, and is  making a truly Royal gift.  "In the name of the King I thank you for your public-spirited  generosity, I hope that your example will make its influence felt  throughout the length and breadth of Canada."  Beferring to this event at the opening exercises of the Sanatorium,.
