They have also recently  big producers���the Granby company  and the B. C. Copper company���the  output of the Consolidated company  and tho Dominion Copper mines hav  ing been comparatively small. The  story is unique, however, in the fact  that with ihe t;ranby as tlie only  shipper during the first five months of  1908 the Boundary ore .shipments for  the.year amounted to oyer a million  and a half tons and constitutes a re'rurd  in the history of the district���the  Granby itself having shipped over a  million tons. For the fourth successive  year ihe Boundary district, in tlie value  of mineral product hoids first place  among all the mining districts of British Columbia.  MINKKA'. V.M.UE $40,000,000  Boundary mining dates back to  1900 during which the B. C mine  shipped a few thousand tons of ore to  Trail smelter and Granby commenced  its shipments to Grand Forks, the  total production of ore since that time  being approximately seven and a quarter million tons with an estimated  value of about $40,000,000.  In 1900 the Boundary mines shipped  96,000 tons and since that time the  advancement of the mining industry in  the district generally has been steady.  In 1901 the B. C. Copper company's  smelter was completed and put into  operation and the ore mined reached  390,800 tons, while in 1903 the Boundary Falls smelter was constructed and  commenced operations, and marked a  still further advancement in the quantity of ore mined and treated, which  will be seen by .referring to the ore  table elsewhere on this page.  This steady increase in Boundary  ore shipments was affected, however  by the disastrous slump in the metal  market and resulted in all the local  producers being closed tight on Nov.  11th, 1907, and with two months  none producing the tonnage for 1907  fell slightly behind that of 1906.  STEADY   EXTENSION  The encouraging features of Boundary mining during the past year has  been the steady extension of the mining and smelting operations of Granby,  B. C. Copper and Consolidated companies, each of which has been operating successfully, notwithstanding the  low copper market,���making substantial increase in ore reserves, adding  new and up-to-date machinery for the  economical handling of ore and production of blister copper, as well as  developing new prospects. The re  sumption of dividends by the Granby  company last month and the expected  resumption of dividends by the B. C.  Copper company in the course of a  few weeks, is not the least encouraging  feature of the past year's progress, and  goes to show what efficient management has accomplished in the mining  and smelting of such low grade ore at  an almost minimum copper market.  After being closed for some weeks  following the financial panic the Granby  company resumed shipments on Jan.  1st, 1908, which steadily increased  until March, when it established a  record, 11.0,223 tons heing shipped from  ���he mines to the smelter in one month.  During the month of March the full  battery of eight furnaces were in blast  for the entire 31 days. In succeeding  months one or more of the furnaces  have been out of commission for days  while various improvements were being made, each having to be connected  with the new steel flue-dust chamber,  and latterly the enlarging ofone of the  furnaces required some weeks. Then  the Crow's Nest fire and the uncertainty  of coke supply resulted in four of the  furnaces being out of commission for  some time and the shipments practi-  cut in two.  $500,000 BEING EXPENDED  The policy of steady advancement  of the Granby company and their  growing faith in the mineral resources  of the Boundary is evidenced in the  expenditure of $500,000 in improvements (made during the past year and  now in progress) to their mining and  smelling works for the economical  production of blister copper. The  bulk of this money, however, is bein^  expended in improvements to the  smelter.  At the mines no important construe  tion work was done during 190S  though the constant addition of improvements included the increasing ol  the number of crushers to four, eacl  with a capacity of 1,500 tons per hour:  the reconstruction of the No. 3 tunm  outlet with new conveyor, the install  in^ of automatic dump cars on tlv  400-foot   level,   and   the   general   111 ���  irovement   of shipping   facilities,   S'  that the mines are now equipped for 1  laily output of 5000   tons.    Dcveloi ���  ment work at the mines has been ke|  purchased the building in which their  local offices are located.  Granby mines are in a particularly  fortunate position for shipping purposes.  If one of the openings should, by any  reason, be placed out of commission,  the regular output could be easily maintained from either one of two or three  openings. In fact this has been done  quite recently, and haying two railways  to haul the ore is another decided  advantage. , ,  IMPROVEMENTS AT SMELTER  As stated above the Granby smelting, works are undergoing ..extensive re  construct ion and improvement at a big  expenditure. Perhaps the most important work is the enlarging of the  battery of eight furnaces, one of which  has been completed. The furnaces  are each being lengthened from 18 to  22 feet (42 inches wide) and when the  enlarging is completed���-about June  next���the capacity of the smelter will  be increased from. 3000 to 4000 tons  of ore per day.-, Other i mprovements  were the construction of a steel dust  chamber at the back of the blast furnaces to replace the brick chamber  formerly used; enlargement of brick  dust settling chamber near smoke  stack and substitution of a steel and  brick b.iilding of larger size and having  cement floors, for the old wooden  structure used as a blowing engine  room; installation of two Connerville  rotary blowers, each of 30,000 cubic  feet per minute capacity, and each  having 150 horse power induction  motors; increasing the number of converters to have a total capacity of 36,-  000,000 pounds of copper a year and  to be electrically operated; installation  of a two cylinder 40x40x42 inch blowing engine of latest type, with capacity  of 10,000. cubic feet per minute at  13-lb pressure, apr^'driven by electric  pow��r; construction of additional ore  andcoke storage bunkers of a capacity, respectively, of 7,000 and 4,000  added and the capacity of the plant  doubled when required. Surveyors  have already run a line for a tramway  and spur to connect with the C.F.R..  main line near Hartford J unction.  CONSOLIDATED   COMPANY'S   SNOWSHOE  The Snowshoe mine is the important  Boundary shipper of the Consolidated  company, which operate extensively  at Trail, Rossland and Moyie. Since  resuming operations in August the  Snowshoe has gradually increased its  shipment", which now run close to 600  tons daily, thc greater part of which  goes to the company's smelter at Trail  and the balance to the B.C. Cojper  smelter. Development work since  resumption has proved the existence  of a much larger ore body than was  known before; a new machine shop  has recently been built, fully equipped  and electrically driven ; a new water  tank was constructed increasing the  storage capacity to 175,000 gallons,  and a great deal of general surface improvements have also neen done.  The unfortunate feature of mining in  the Boundary during the past year was  the financial difficulties of the Dominion Copper company which resulted in  it going into liquidation. The mines  closed down in common with other  copper producers in 1907, resuming  operations in July last. When shipping only a few weeks the smelter was  overtaken with fuel shortage resulting  from the Fernie fire. While it was  expected the last partial reorganization  had placed the company on a good  financial basis, this did not prove to be  the case. The company was working  largely on borrowed money and being  unable to meet the heavy interest  payments, the bondholders foreclosed.  A reorganization of the Dominioa  Copper company is now pending.  The only other mines contributing  to the Boundary pre shipments, during  1908 were the Sally, 108 tons, and the  Crescent, 53 tons���-both high grade  properties.    One carload of ore from  Kolgbis of Pythias Installation  Next Tuesday promises to be a gala  night with local Knights of Pythias.  A joint installation of officers of Greenwood, Midway, Grand Forks and  Phoenix lodges is being arranged for.  Geo. Chappie,' D. D. G. C of Grand  Forks will be the installing officer. A  cordial invitation is extended to all  Pythians to attend.  Minstrels Qolnj; to Geeenwooa"  The Phoenix Royal Minstrels are  playing in Greenwood the evening of  January 20th. They have a new line  of jokes to spring on the valley people,  which will make them forget the cold  snap, and also have a lot of new songs  and choruses. Following out the purpose of the organization, the proceeds  will be devoted to a worthy local  cause. XX.' ..������.  tons;   and   various   improvements  to  the Sally mine (21  tons) shipped last  Band Meeting ,     .  A meeting is called for Wednesday  evening next in the city hall at 7.30  prompt for the purpose of reorganizing  the city band Chris.  Halverson who  has made a conspicious success in the  musical direction of the minstrel  orchestra has taken the matter of reorganizing the band up and promises  a good band by spring. All interested  are cordially invited.  electric plant, water supply, etc. During the past year the Granby treated  r,037,000 tons of ore and the copper  produced amounted to 23,535,000 lbs.  which considerably exceeds its output  of the red metal during any previous  year.  B.C.   COPPER  COMPANY  'J he British Columbia Copper company which resumed operations on  June 1, 1908, after a close down of  seven months, has also made general  improvements at both its mines and  smelting works. The shipping capacity  at Mother Lode mine was increased to  2,000 tons daily by doubling the air  compressor plant, installing a Canadian  Rand 35 drill engine, electrically driven  by a 700 horsepower induction motor  connected with it oy a rope drive; a  20,000 volt sub-station was erected; a  35,000 gallon reservoir built, a number  of new self-dumping ore tram cars installed, and at the Oro Denoro mine a  new ore crushing and conveying plant  was put in operation, while at the  smelter a sampling plant was installed,  and many other less important improvements have been made at the com  pany's mines and smelter.  The B.C. Copper company recently  issued a circular showing that during  six months ending Nov. 30th last, it  had produced about 5,548,000 lbs. of  copper which, together with the gold  and silver also recovered, was of a  total value at the time of shipment of  $1,038,085, and from this there would  be a total profit shown  as $226,700.  PROSPECTIVE   SHIPPERS  Prospective new shippers for 1909  lend color to the progress of mining  operations in the Boundary. The B.  C. Copper company are now pros-  necting recently-bonded claims in  Wellington camp, where a considerable  amount of sample ore is now ready  for shipment. A good vein of ore has  been demonstrated and the indications  of a mine are so encouraging that arrangements have been made for shipping facilities, which will include the  construction of a tram line and spur to  reach the Great Northern railway.  Another property which promises to  'ake   a   prominent   place   among   thc  Boundary   shippers   this   year   is   the  Phoenix Amalgamated, which has al  eady made its appearance on the ton-  mge li t     This property, which joit 8  he Granby group, wasarquired by tin  Consolidated   Mining   and   Smelting  ���ompany of Canada last summer, who  liave developed a  promising  body of  >re on it.     Only 245 tons  of test  on  have as yet been shipped, but the pro  ress  of development   work   indicate-  liat thenewly-opened ore body will no'  ���illy give a large tonnage,   but shoots  f ore above the average grade of that  lecurring  in other local  mines hav>  >een found.    A 10-drill air compresso  fall, netted $3,175 after paying all  shipping and smelting costs.  Other promising properties where  development work has been carried on  during the past year are theE. P. U.  the Woodburn and the Lucky Shot.  The Pioneer ore table on this page  gives the ore tonnage in detail from  each of the Boundary mines to date,  the figures of which have been revised.  Furniture Business Sold.  An important business transfer took  place in town this week when Noble  Binns disposed of his furniture and  undertaking ousiness to C. F. Edwards, of Wroxeter, Ontario, who took  possession on Thursday. Mr. Edwards  is a practical and progressive young  businessman and will no doubt receive  a continuance of the patronage which  Mr. Binns has received. Mr. McCammon, who has been manager here  for Mr. Binns for some year3 will probably go to Trail in the course of a few  weeks.  Weatherman Qses Bad.  The weatherman, who had been  treating Phoenix pretty generously this  winter up till this week, fell from grace  oh Monday, and mercury went the  bump-te-bumps to 26 below; the oldest  inhabitant lost his memory when he  tried to recall such an occurrence here  before. Many household water pipes  throughout the city were out of business and the plumber has been the  busiest man in town. At Grand Forks,  Eholt and Greenwood the thermometer  registered in the forties, and at Midway  Mercury is said to have smashed the  j bottom out of the machine, and when  last seen was heading downward.  REBEKAHS ENTERTAIN  Installation of Officers Is Followed by Social  Evening  Phoenix Rebekah lodge were the  hostesses of an enjoyable dance on  Monday evening, following the instal  lation of officers for the ensuing year.

While attempting to enter the cage  before it came to a standstill Wednesday morning an Italian got his foot  caught between the timbers of the  shaft and the cage, resulting in two  toes being severed.  A full force is now employed at the  Mother Lode mine and ore shipments  are keeping at normal.  The B.C.

Although  Phoenix got away to a good start, with  the 3-0 in their favor at half-time, the  visitors .came back strong in the second  half, and the locals had to go the limit  to hang on to tbe big end of the score.  Clark, .howevet, -who crawled .out of  bed to take part in the'game was not  up to usual form, and McQueen who  had - frozen his hands -in "the ���*. first-half -  was not so aggressive during the latter  part of the game. Angus McDonald, *'  the light-weight "infant" of the local  line-up, showed up to advantage, and  perhaps delivered more goods from  position than any man on the ice,  while McQueen and McKelvie kept  things interesting near the Greenwood  nets. Dill and Myers played an aggressive game for the visitors. Geo.  Cole made a splendid umpire and  kept the game clean. Following was  the line-up:  PHOENIX GREENWOOD  S. Lackey. goal. .W.'G.

LAKE WIMU'EC CAVIAR  Utiraatla* Cariataaa Saut aalr Saat Aaraad  ���I taa Wiaaiaai Frat Praaa  Not many people are aware that the  annual export of caviar from Lake  Winnipeg % to Hambutg, which is the  chief caviar market of the world, is of  the value of from $ 10,000 to $15,000.  Fewer still are aware that much of the  Lake Winnipeg caviar comes back to  this side of the Atlantic in one pound,  half pound, and quarter pound jars and  tins, labelled as the Russian article.  By gourmands, the world over, caviar  is greatly * relished as an appetizer.  King Edward is particularly fond of  caviar sandwiches at luncheon.  A handsome little enamelled  tin of  caviar from   Lake Winnipeg was  sent  out by the Winnipeg Free Press, in  pursuance   of   its annual custom  of  making the Christmas season by the  distribution  of   a- western  Canadian  souvenir to the newspapers of Canada,  the United States and Great Britain.  This makes ,the eighth of these annual  souvenirs, the one for Christmas, 1907,  having been a miniature barrel of flour  made at the Hudson's Bay company's  mill at Vermillion, 1,439  miles northwest of Winnipeg, from   wheat grown  jn  the   Peace   River   country.    The  Christmas,   1908,  souvenir is accompanied,   like its  predecessors,   by   an  artistic booklet, with   numerous   illustrations, the cover design  being the  reproduction of a water color picture  of a Lake Winnipeg  scene.    In addition to much interesting and valuable  information about western  Canada, it  contains - some   curious   facts   about  caviar,  and   the  Cree  legend   of the  sturgeon, gi%en  iu print for the ^first  time.    "  Those  interested   in   local   option  throughout the province have become  very active during  the past  month.  Petitions are being circulated in every  municipality, to present to his excel-  ency, tbe lieutenant-governor, asking  that he provide for the passing of an  act at the next meeting of the legislature, whereby a vote may betaken on  local option at the same time as muni  cipal   elections   and   decided   by   a  majority of votes polled.    Each member of parliament is also being peti  ttoned by residents of their individual  districts requesting that they take an  active interest in the passing of such  an act.    The petitions are bemg largely  sighed.  '. ::A>-    ���    ��� ���    ���     January Monetary Timet  The   Monetary  Times  of  January  2nd is a considerably   enlarged issue;  containing   banking,    financial,   commercial and insurance statistics for the  past twelve   months.    Special   articles  on   the   bond   situation,   the  Cobalt  region and similar topics are included.  Business men throughout the country  express their opinions as to the outlook  for 1909.   The situation and prospects  of individual   districts  from   coast to  coast are briefly but adequately  dealt  with.    This  elaborate   issue  deserves  perusal by every business man desiring  to size up the present  situation  and  future    prospects.     A    chronological  table  of  the   most   important   events  occurring in financial and commercia  Canada during 1908 is an exceptionally valuable reference feature.  Great Year Ahead.  A great year is promised for readers  of the Family Herald and Weekly Star  of Montreal. Already the acknowledged best family and farm paper  printed, the publishers are out with the  announcement that it is to be vastly  improved during 1909, in appreciation  of the enormous number of snbscrip-  # Practically all the legislatures of the J tions received.

Evidently the Family Herald and Weekly  Star during 19��9 >s SoinS to be g*eat<ir  ' value than ever before.  The following is taken from the re  view   of   1908   mining  operations  in  British Columbia, of the Nelson Daily  News, written by E.   Jacobs, editor of  the B. C, Mining Record:  The aggregate value of British Columbia's   mineral  production   for   all  years to the end of 1908 is, in  round  figures,    $323,000,000.     This .large  total   may   be   apportioned   approximately as follows:    Placer gold, $70,-  000,000; lode metals (gold, silver, lead  and copper)  $150,000,000; coal  and(  coke,     $95,000,000;     miscellaneous  (building  stone, brick, cement,   etc.),  $8,000,000.    Up to the end  of 1888  the  total   was within  half a   million  dollars of $70,000,000, of which $55,-  000,000 was for placer gold and $13,-  000,000 for coal.    Lode metals to the  end of 1888 were of a  total value of  only  $131,000; now  they represent a  total  of $151,000,000  as   compared  with   $165,000,000   for  placer  gold,  coal and coke.    It is  therefore quite  evident that about three fifths of the  gTeat increase made during the last 20  years came . from  lode  metals, hence  the importance of the lode  mining industry to the province.  -Briefly reviewing last year's  mineral  production���quantities, not values���it  is noted that there  were increases in  the following:   Lode, gold, silver, copper and building materials.   Decreases  were shown in:    Placer gold, lead and  coal.    Increases or decreases in values  corresponded to those of quantities, excepting the cases of silver and copper,  both of which were higher in  quantity  produced but lower in value, owing to  lower average market  prices  for the  year.''.'".Comparing districts as to value,  only Cariboo and West; Kootenay are  credited with' increases; all other districts made decreases.  ' The following comment is submitted:  Cariboo, Quesnel and Omineca divisions all produced more placer gold  than in   1907.:   Cassiar's production  showed a considerable falling off.    East  Kootenay's increase is mainly attributable to the suspension of operations at  the Sullivan group mine and smelter  which caused a decrease in production  of both lead and silver in that district.  The average metal contents of St.  Eugene ore was lower, which in smaller  measure contributed. to the decrease.  In West Kootenay the comparatively  large production of the Whitewater and  Deep  mines,   and   the   Bluebell,  of  silver and lead, made , Ainswoi th, show  an increase of $159,000.   Slocan < for  the third successive year, made an advance, and it will be well for those who  are in the habit of decrying this district to. note that it was .a substantial  improvement, contributed to in large  degree by half a dozen mines.and to a  less important extent by a number of  small ones.   The total production- of  of silver was 953,000 oz. in   1908 as  compared with 591,000 oz. in 1907  and 7,000,060 lb. of lead as against  4,306,000 lb. ��� Before passing on it may  be well to mention that evidences of  progress in Slocan are:    The transformation of Whitewater from a deserted  camp to a scource of substantial production in silver, lead  and zinc;  the  abundant justification of the policy of  the Rambler-Cariboo management in  having at great expense driven a deep-  level cross-cut tunnel 5,000 feet into the  mountain to obtain greater depth, important   bodies   of , pre having been  reached, two of them new.  shoots, on  three new levels (the lowest at 1050 ft.  depth)   below  the old workings ; the  development  of much  ore   of   good  grade in  the Richmond-Eureka mine,  near Sandon. and the .adjoining claim  of the Slocan Star group, these togeth-l  er having shipped  3,400  tons of ore  containing more than 200,000 oz, of  silver and 1,500,000 lb.   of lead ; the  finding of a large new shoot of ore of  good grade in the Reco; the encouraging result of driving a deep-level tunnel  Judicious advertising is the only real  'way to "stir things up."    Costs less  than salesmen, and brings better returns  than  the most silvery tongued  I sa'iesman could.   Try the Pioaeer.  erly, the vein  having  760 feet vertically below the old workings (which were down  300 feet); the  substantial advance   made in Silverton  camp with the Standard, an important  producer of silvei and lead,   the  Vancouver haying valuable ore deposits, in  the possession of a  financially  strong  English company and under fully competent  management; and  the further  satisfactory development of the Hewitt;  the improvement of the Westmont from  a   prospect   into a  paying producing  mine; the considerable promise given  by the Howard   Fraction group ; and  generally, the better situation in regard  to a number small  mines  in   the district   which   have  been  adding  their  quota to.the sum total  of production  and are looking well for the future.  Reverting to comment in a less particular way���the success met   with   at  the Bluebell  in  distinctly  gratifying;  Nelson division, which has for the time  lost the production  of the La  Plata,  has the advantage of the Silver King  being in excellent hands   for good results, the Queen Victoria   being thoroughly prospected by New York men,  the Granite-Poortnan doing well, while  Erie mines are continuing  to  steadily  produce gold and Sheep creek is giving  promise, in an increasing yield of gold  from  several   properties, of  becoming  one ofthe  most  important  lode-gold  cimps in the province; Rossland is in  a better position for permanent mining  of gold and gold-copper ores than ever  before, with ore bodies that are being  worked at a profit downj to 3,000 feet  (on  the  incline),   and Ian  increasing  tonnage; and, in the Lardeau, the Silver  Cup steadily  maintaining an  average  production of 130 tons ,of high-grade  silver-lead   ore -~ per month' the year  through,  deeper mining being undertaken concurrently.    As to   the Boundary���-its very, substantial  production  of 1,450,000  tons of ore, an increase  over  last year's tonnBge of 300,000  tons, indicates a material improvement;  further,   though  one  company which  was   operating  on ��� borrowed   capital  went to the wall, two strong companies  are  opening  up  new  properties,   the  while continuing to work their productive old ones.    There is little  change  to  note  in  the Similkameen,   which  must await the completion of the railway,   now   being  constructed,   before  conditions there will   be  favorable   to  much improvement in mining. Finally,  the  Coast district,   where  much  de-?  velopment work is being done  on the  enormous ore deposits of the Britannia  in readiness for an improvement in the  price of copper; where, too surprisingly  rr,h bornite ore has  lately  been developed in quantity on the 920-ft. level  in the Marble Bay mine, Texada Island, which is a leading feature in the  year's mining on the coast, and where  the Tyee Copper company is preparing  for the considerable developments its  management are  confident   will  take  place there within their field of opera-  lions, which include  smelting  as well  as mining.  Finally as to coal  the commencement of production  by  the   Hosmer  Mines,   Ltd.,  with   its   big  plant   for  handling a considerable  quantity  of  coal and coke, and of the Corbin Coal  & Coke company in another part of  the Crow's Nest  Pass  Coal  company  extending its operations, will havo thc  effect of ensuring a  more  abundant  supply of fuel than in some past years.  In Nicola valley, too, the enterprise of  the Nicola Coal &  Coke  company is  on a  basis of production  on a commercial  scale,   while   on   Vancouver  island the South Wellington company  will soon be a competitor for some of  the coal trade of the coast.    Other developments of coal properties are being  prepared for, but the above mentioned  are of most present importance^  (Continued on Page 3)  One preparation which contains all the nutritive  STmSg and flavoring qualities of prime beet.

Zam-Buk is the refined ana conctnt. &ted isftncts of healing herbs���nature's  balm. Theoretically it. should be good. Analysts and doctors agree  on this. Practically ��s wtll as theoretically it. Is good. Thousands  of people in four continents bear testimony.    Read these cases :���  Mrs.  Win. Hu'j{l)e!<, of 253.   Hcct.elxi u'Mitei, Htchela^a, Montreal,   says :���"I  suffered from bliiid, iichiny, and  i>rouudii>g piles  for ^ear*.

Other matters worth noting are the  large additions to plant and machinery  made or being made at the smelters���  at Trail for both copper and lead, at  the Granby works, and.at those of tne  B.C. Copper company at Greenwood,  for copper, and too, at Ladysmith,  Vancouver island, by the Tyee Copper  company, also for copper ores; the  building of new and the improvements  made to old concentrating mills in  both east and west Kootenay for lead  and zinc ores; the successful inauguration of the electric lead-zinc smelting  process at Nelson, and several installations of small new stamp mills for gold  ores.  Railway construction, too, is adding  to the transportation facilities of some  mineral bearing districts, notably in the  northern country, in the Similkameen,  and on Vancouver island. The construction of the Kootenay Central, in  East Kootenay, and of the Midway-  Vernon line, in the Boundary, is still  anxiously awaited.  The additional useful work done in  the province by the Dominion depart,  ment of mines should be noted. The  Geological survey branch had field [jar-  ties at work last year in the Boundary,  Similkameen and coast districts; and  on Texada and Vancouver islands,  while preparation was made for work  next year in trie Slocan. The visit of  the acting director ofthe survey, R. W.  Brock, who is thoroughly familiar with  much of the Kootenay and Boundary  country, in company with the Dominion minister of mines, was welcomed in the mining districts.  The largely increased interest taken  in British Columbia by the   Canadian  Mining  institute   is   also a matter (or  congratulation.    The western   branch  of the institute, organized at Nelson in  January, 1908,  with a membership of  about 120, held   interesting   meetings  at Rossland in May and in  Victoria in  September, and will meet   a   fortnight  hence in Greenwood.    Its membership  is   now   about   185 and the interest iii  its proceedings   is  steadily increasing.  The   visit   to   British   Columbia  last  September,   under the auspices of the  institute, of a   number   of  influential  mining engineers and geologists   from  Great Britain and continental Europe  will probably later be evident in   the  introduction of more British capital for  the development cf mines in this   province.   John Ash worth of Manchesttr,  England, an engineer of  international  reputation afterwards said:   "My  own  opinion is that  British  Columbia   will  become in the  near   future   the  great  mining center for British capital.    At  all events it should be.   What impressed me and those who were with me on  the excursion through the various mining camps was the magnificent opening  for British capital which bona fide flo  tation offered.    This will be the view  generally expressed."  GoLn���To the total of 256,000 oz.  Rossland mines contributed about  142,000 oz., Boundry mines and Hcd  ley camp ol Osoyoos division together  about 94,000 oz.; Nelson more than  14,000 oz. 'mostly from Sheep  Creek[  camp),  thti Coast (chiefly the MarLl  Bay mine, Texada Island) some 4,000  oz.,*arid the remainder from the   Lardeau.  ; Silver���The Boundary district's  proportion was 596.000 oz., chiefly  from the copper, mines of the Granby  and British Columbia Copper companies. .The Coast district yielded  49,000 oz., nearly two-thirds of which  was from the Marble Bay mine, Tex-  ada Island, and a little less than one-  third from the Ikeda mine on Moresby  Island of the Queen Charlotte group.  Copper���The year's production of  copper, est.mated at 43,885,000 lbs.  is the largest by nearly 1,000,000 lbs,  of any year since mining was commenced in the province, that of 1906,  42 990,000 lbs..having been the maximum production for one year. Of the  total j for 1908, Boundary district  mines produced about 36,000,000 lbs.;  those of Rossland came next with 5,-  3-0,000 lbs., and then Coast mines  with about 2,500,000 lbs. The production of other parts of the province  was insignificant.  The progress of copper mining in  the Boundary will he evident from the  following figures of annual production,  those in parentheses being for the  whole    of    Hritish    Columbia:        In  1904, 2 2,066,000 lbs. (35.710,000 lbs.)  1905, 27,670,060 lbs. (37,692,000 lbs.)  1906, 32,227,000 lbs-(42,990,000 lbs.)  '9��7��3' 52 1,000 lbs. (40,833,000'lbs.)  1908, 36,000,000 lbs. (43,855,000 lbs.)  Assays of copper ore cf the district,  based upon copper recovered in 1907  averaged 1 34. An idea of the quantity  of coppVr produced by each company  is obtained from the following figures  showing tonnage of ore mined and  smelted last year; Granby company,  1,023.600 tons; Dominion Copper Co.,  22,000 tons ; Consolidated M. and S  Co., 41,600 tons. Dominion Copper  company only operated its smelter for  a few weeks, going into liquidation last  summer. This gives a total of 1,444,-  000 tons of copper ore mined and  smelted last year.  Rossland mines are estimated to have  produced a total of 5,300,000 lb. of  copper in roo8, in the following proportions;    Centre Star, 2,000,000 lb.;  A Canadian View of U.S. Tariff.;  The attitude of the United States  toward Canada has been that of a  petty trader who declines to do business with a man because their fathers  had a disagreement. To his own hurt  he blinds himself to the fact that a  transaction may be profitable to both  parties to it. This attitude on the  part of the United States was not entirely unreasonable. Indeed if ever  there was a case in which retaliation  was likely to do good, here was one,  ���a large community side by side with  a smaller one, two peoples descended  from the same stock* speaking somewhat similar languages, living in the  same environment, and separated by a  boundary which was wholly artificial.  The United States was also aware that  Montreal was a centre of conspiracy  against the North, and that ships had  gone from Canadian ports to force  their blockade.  But all this old bitterness has passed  away, and the frame of mind of Canada  at least is one of good-natured banter  toward an elder brother. Young men  from the United States are coming to  Canada in increasing numbers. They  are found in factories, offices, universi  ties, churches and clubs. They are  crowding the Western lands. They  make good citizens because they take  hold of Canadian institutions, and,  helping to work them, become Canadians. ..'������������"'',���  Canada is now so secure in her  political status as part of the empire  that she has no fear of what trade can  do. The preference wh-ch was granted  to England has a basis in sentiment,  but also in the necessity for cheaper  goods. Sixty-two per cent, of the  I e .pie live on or near the farms.!

The ores of these  mines contain gold and silver as well  as copper, Le Roi No. 2 being especially favored in recovering an a\erage  gold value fully twice that from the  other mines. Extensive developments  and at the Centre Star substantial improvements as well were made at mines.  The Le Roi expended $108,000 in  development work consisting of 6,000  feet of drifting, raising, cross-cutting,  etc. and between 4,000 and 5,000 feet  of diamond drilling. The most important results achieved during the  year were the finding of ore bodies of  good grade in the deeper levels of all  three mines���in the Le Roi on the  1,650 foot level, in the Centre Star  down to about 2,000 feet on the incline, and intheLe Roi No. 2 on 700-  foot level, and deeper in a diamond  drill bore.  In the Coast district the copper production to be noted is that of the Britannia Mining and Smelting company,  which last June resumed operations on  a small scale at the Britannia mine,  Howe Sound, and shipped to the  smelter about ro,8oo tons of ore and  concentrate, containing approximately  646,000 lbs. of copper, beside values-  in gold and silver.
