THE JEWELER  Mining'  at Greenwood  FourtH   General Meeting of 'Western  Branch  on Monday  The fourth general meeting of members of the Western Bionch of the  Canadian Mining Institute was held  in the Guirt house, Greenwood, Monday and Tuesday of this week.  In the temporary absence from the  province of the chairman of the branch  A. B. \V. Hodges, of Grand Forks,  Keneral superintendent of the Granby  company, S. S. Fowler, of Riondel,  general manager of the Canadian  Metal company was voted to the chair.  The following members were present : B. A. Isaac, Louis Pratt, j. A.  Whittier, Nelson ; S: S. Fowler; Riondel ; J. L. Retallack, Kaslp ; H. r\  Dickinson, A* G. Larson,' Rossland ;  Thomas Kiddie, Northport; E. Jacobs  (secretary of oranch), Victoria ; O. B7  Smith, Charles Rundberg, Phoenix ;  C. S. Baker, S. E. Belt, F. Keffer, M.  I). Mcintosh, VV. C.H. Wilson, Greenwood.;, A. Burnett, Greenwood; R.W.  Hinton and James McGregor, Nelson;  and H. G. Nichols, Vmir, whose ap-  p'ications were received, were also  present. Among the visitors in attendance were Mayor Bunting, Alderman Dixon,. Provincial Government  Agent McMynri, I H. Hallet, S M.  Johnson, R. B. Kinp, F. J, Longworth,  Greenwood; J. Ehrenberg, Spokane ;���  j. M; Millar, Greenwood Times, and  T. A  Love, Phoenix Pioneer.  Mayor Bunting cordially welcomed  to Greenwood the visiting members of  the institute.    He invited their attention to the important mineral resources  and mining and smelting industries of  the Boundary, in which  district   there  are numerous properties on which the  occurrence of ores high in  silver  and  gold had been proved,   in addition .to  the large copper mines   the  abundant  production   of   which   was  well  and  widely   known.      Much   capital   was  needed, though, for the more extensive  development of the mineral  resources  of the district, and he hoped   that the  meeting of fhe'ihstitute at Greeawbbd.  would have the effect of directing  the  attention of capitalists to the favorable  ! field the Boundary offers  for  the  in  vestment of money  in   mining  enterprises.    He was pleased to have  been  afforded the opportunity of welcoming  the   visitors   to  Greenwood  and   the  district, and hoped   their   visit   would  prove both pleasant and   profitable to  them.  Alderman Dixon was also gratified  at being present on that occasion, and  had pleasure in adding his welcome to  that extended by the mayor. He  earnestly believed that the Boundary  country is a good one, especially in  respect of its mineral resources. Not  only are there numerous valuable  mining properties in the near-by parts  of the district, but there were others  up the West Fork of the Kettle liver  also very promising and only awaiting  capital for their further development.  He joined in wishing that the visitors  would, find their brief stay in the  Boundary both of benefit to themselves and the important industry they  were directly interested in.  Before reading an account of the  last general meeting of the branch,  held in Victoria on September 22nd,  1908, and of a subsequent visit to  Naniamo, of the Canadian Mining  Institute summer excursion, the secretary read apologies, for unevoidable  absence from the provincial mineralogist (W. F. Robertson) and a number  of other members of the branch.  After the account of the last meeting had been approved, the chairman,  referring particularly to the visit to  Naniamo, of which the meeting had  just heard, said that they should not  lose sight of the fact that there were  important activities in mining and  smelting in other parts of the province  as well as that they themselves were engaged in. It is much to be regretted that distances between the respective parts of the province in which  large mining enterprises are being  carried on are too great to admit of a  frequent exchange of visits, and that  consequently those membei s who are  engaged in the coast districts are  usualy unable to visit the interior  mining camps and vice-versa. However, since circumstances are against  such a desiraDle interchange, members  should do what they could to make  the meetings in their respective districts  interesting and successful.  In response to the chaiiman's invitation, W. (J. McMynn, provincial  government agent, briefly addressed  the meeting. He regretted that winter  time had been chosen for holding a  meeting in the district, which would  have been seen to much greater advantage had there been no snow on  the ground, as at present. He trusted  that another visit would be paid at a  less unfavorable time when it would be  practicable to get about the district  without inconvenience and see the  mines and mineral showings better  than, could  be done in  winter.    On  behalf of the Greenwood club, he had  the pleasure of inviting the visitors to  make themselves at home at the club  where they would be cordially welcomed. . .1  The chairman ihen announced that  the Cinderella club of Greenwood had  kindly invited the {visitors to attend a  complementary dance, to be given that  evening in the locfl auditorium; also  that the B. C. Coj>per company had  made arrangements for showing visiting  members oyer the local smelting works |  and afterwards taking them up to its  Mother Lode mine.  H. P. Dickinson and J. A. Whittier  were appointed by the chairman scrutineers to examine trie ballots for chairman and members'of the council for  the ensuing year, find report to the  meeting on Tuesday morning.  The secretary reminded the meeting  that R. W. Brock, for some time past  acting director of the Geological Survey  branch of  the Dominion Department  ment of Mines,   has   been  appointed  director, in  succession  to   Dr.   A. P.  Lbw,"whbse health has not been good  enough to allow of'his  continuing to  fulfill the onerous duties of that respon  sible position, and suggested that th  congratulations of the branch  be sent  to Mr.; Brock.'"'Louis Pratt and A. G  Larson   were deputed   to  prepare  a  suitab|e message of/congratulation.  Thfc chairman  brought forward the  matter of the necessity that exists  for  assisting the electro-thermic  smelting  industry  recently   parted   at Nelson  ���after years of outlay'of time and money  in   conducting   experiments    in   this  connection.  It has proved that spelter  could be made by  the   process, more  effectively developed  at   Nelson,   but  those who had thus "far  financed the  new enterprise were in need  of assistance to carry it toa?<successfnl  issue.  The provincial government had assisted  to the extent of $_oJobpj_ he now submitted for discussion   and  considera  tion of the meeting  the  question  of  whether or not it was desirable to ask  the   Dominion   government   to assist  this industry in the direction indicated.  After attention had been  called  to  the suggestion made at the meeting of  the branch held last May in Rossland  that an application should be made to  the provincial government to grant a  sum of money for the use of the local  branch of the institute, similar to that  made to farmers' institutes  and  other  provincial  organizations,  the  meeting  adjourned till Tuesday.  TUESDAY MORNING'S   MEETING  On resuming on Tuesday morning  the report of the scrutineers was received as.follows: For chairman ofthe  branch: Thos. Kiddie. For members  of branch council: XV. H. Armstrong,  N. McL. Curran, S. S. Fowler, A. H.  Gracey, J. C. Haas, J. Hopp, J. D.  Hurd, Jas. McEvoy, F. C. Merry, P.  L. Naismith, Lewis Stockett and Thos.  R. Stockett. The ex officio members  of the council are the following: W.M.  Brewer, A. B. W. Hodges, F. Keffer,  A. J. McNab, W. F. Robertson, O.B.  Smith and R. H. Stewart.  Mr. Fowler called on Mr. Kiddie to  at once assume h*s new duties as chairman of the branch', to which office he  had great pleasure to see the new  chairman elected. Mr. Kiddie had for  years been actively interested in the  mining and metallurgical industries  of British Columbia and, too, he had  been a zealous worker in the interests  of the Canadian Mining Institute, on  the council of which he had served for  a term. As member of the council of  the branch, too, he had done much to  make the branch meetings successful  and as well to interest others in them.  He heartily congratulated him upon  his practically unanimous election as  chairman, and would now vacate the  chair in his favor.  Mr. Kiddie, who was received with  applause, briefly returned thanks for  the honor done him in electing him  chairman and assured the meeting that  he would continue his endeavors for  the advancement of the institute and  the success of the btanch in particular.  He reminded them that the large  measure of success the branch had  already enjoyed was attributable mainly  to the activity of the chairman for the  year just closed���A. B. VV. Hodges,  and he suggested that a hearty vote of  thanks for his services be passed by  the meeting and communicated to Mr.  Hodges by the secretary.  It was unanimously resolved, on the  motion of Mr.   Fowler,   seconded   by  Mr. Keffer, "That this meeting of the  Western Branch o! the Canadian Min-  Institute    hereby    expresses   its  Brock, director of the Geological survey, the following telegram: We  heartily congratulate you on your appointment as Director of the Geological Survey and express our appreciation  that your valuable work in the past has  thus been acknowledged."  On moften of Mr. Kiddie, seconded  by  Mr.   Retallack,   it  was  resolved:  "That this the Western Branch of the  Canadian Mining Institute, in meeting  assembled,   does  hereby   express  its  approval and appreciation ofthe action  of the Federal Government, through  its Department of Mines, in  seeking a  solution of the difficulties attendant on  the  economical  smelting  of Eastern  iron ores, by practical experiments in  electro-thermic  reduction,   conducted  at the public cost.  "In  this, connection this meeting  commends   to   the  Government  the  desirability of aiding in and contributing   to   the   advanced    experiments  which   have   already   been   made  in  British  Columbia towards  the separation and reduction  of lead-zinc  ores  by electro thermic energy.    These experiments have demonstrated iheprac-  ticabilty of the separation of metallic  zinc from metallic lead and its recovery  as spelter from complex lead-zinc ores.  Important deposits of such ores occur  in this Province and remain unworked  through  lack  of economic   reduction  facilities.    In the opinion of this meeting, a solution of this problem will   be  of.very great importance to the mining  industry-of the Dominion."      ;  On the motion of Mr. Fowler, seconded by Mr. Keffer, it was resolved :  "That'"'this meeting of the ''"Western,  Branch of the Canadian Mining Insti-I  tute hereby endorses arid, expresses  its appreciation of the action of the  Provincial Government and especially  that of the Honorable the Premier,  Minister of Mines, in aiding the important experiments which are being  conducted at Nelson towards the  separation and reduction of complex  lead-zinc ores by electro-thermic  means." '  General business next had attention.  Among the matters dealt with were the  following:  The secretary was authorized to have  printed for distribution among the  members a separate list of members of  the institute who are also members of  the Western Branch.  A suggestion by the secretary that a  resolution be passed, approving the  work of the Mines branch' ofHie Dominion Department of Mines" in preparing and publishing the recently  issued "Report on the Mining and  Metallurgical Industries of Canada,  1907-8" was considered and, after discussion, the matter was referred to the  council of the branch for such action  as shall be deemed warranted after  members shall have had opportunity of  reading the report.

COPPER CO'S  DECEMBER EARNINGS  Annual  Meeting to |be Held  Prospects for Dividends  J. E. McAllister, manager of the  British Columbia Copper company,  left for New York on Saturday to  attend a meeting of the directors  scheduled for this week. The general  operations of the company's plant will  be discussed, and it is expected that  some action will be taken in connection  with the resuming of dividends.  The annual meeting ofthe company  takes place at West Virginia on Feb.  9th, by which time the comj lete annual  report will be in readiness.  An official of the company states  that the estimated net earnings of the  B. C. Copper company for December  were $46,500. This compares with  $47,000 in November.  The company's fiscal year ended on  Nov. 30th, 1908, and a memorandum  of net earnings for the year was recently  published This showed total net of  $232,609 for the period commencing June 1 (when operations were  resumed after a long shut down), to  November 30.  again  played to a large audience fast night in  the opera house in a play entitled  "Dublin Dan." The name part of the  play was taken by Tom Marks himself who more than lived up to his  reputation of one of Canada's foremost  humorists. Dan is an Irishman who  had left the Emerald Isle, and pigs  and all, taking up his abode in Canada, and Mr. Marks fills the part ad  mirably. His accent was never stagily  Hibernian, his wit was the real thing,  and the "gag's" in which this favorite  humorist delights, fitted .;in ;with the  "book" without any of that strained  effect which so often spoils such efforts.  Miss Millie Bowie as Peggy McGinty  both looked and successfully acted the  part of an Irish-Canadian girl with the  wit of the former nation and all the  "savvy" and Smartness of the newer  cbUniryV/"Miss May 'RoWe^'as^^race  Jacks.on, G.

Judge Williams Leave* for Vancouver  VV. R. Williams, who for a decade  or more has been a familiar figure in  Phoenix, left on Saturday for Spokane  en route to Vancouver, where he may  locate. "Judge" Williams, by which  he was popularly known, having been  police magistrate here for years, had  become recognized as a fixture in  Phoenix, and he will be much missed  in local circles generally. There are  few better known men in this part of  the Dominion, and those who have  met the Judge are usually anxious to  repeat the dose. "Over the nuts and  wine," the  Judge  was in his element.  It is not the name that makes the  Boundary cigar the best, it is the  quality.  News Barter m Qraaby Stack  ;  The News Bureau of Boston gives  the following opinion of Granby stock  at present market prices:  In 1908 Granby produced 23,639,-  984 pounds of copper, the largest output in its history. The cost per pound  after crediting gold and silver values  is now 10^ cents, so tbat on 15-cent  copper the company should be able to  show profits equal to between $7 and  $8 per share on 135,000 shares.  At the present time the smelter is  being enlarged and by next May its  capacity should be 5000 tons of ore  per day which compares with 3200  tons.at present.' ^Officials are figuring  on an increased copper output this  year of 25 to 30 per cent.  So long as the earnings do not permit of dividends above $4 per share  per annum, the price of stock at 104  would seem to be relatively high,  although the shares should be among  the first to respond to the stimulus of  a better copper market.

The Ontario  government had undertaken to run out  a railroad from Lake'Nipissing to Lake  Temiskaming, and thence northwest to  James bay, and La Rose had come  along with his paraphernalia to keep  yPv��wj)h_.the ^procession. ...of.,. jailroad  builders...,. What .induced, the Ontario  government to run out this railroad  along the shores bf'Lake Temiskaming  towards Hudson bay is still -"a;mystery;.  Along , the ( Quebec shores of Lake  Temiskaming, for 66 "or 90 miles, were  French Canadian settlements, well cultivated lands, but "along the Ontario  shores of .Lake Temiskaming there was  sepmingly nothing but forbidden .crub  and rocks. The Montreal river, large  and sluggish, flowing from the* northwest into Lake Temiskaming, and hundreds of lesser lakes' had aided the  lubermen in destruction of those forests.  T.bis river and Lake Temiskaming are  tjie main sources of the Qua wa,,and  for the last half century the lumbermen  qJ7 Ontario have been growing rich de  nuding the forests around Like Temiskaming and the Montreal river. The  wjtole Ontario district of Lake TemiV  kaming and  the  Montreal  river  had  showed evidence of not being good for  anything but lumbering and hunting;  its innumerable lakes had made it the  hunter's paradise.  Alfred La Rose, by some chance,  had won the friendship of Duncan  McMartin, who had spent some years  chasing fortune in the mountains of  British Columbia, and - by (the lone  campfire he used to tell La Rose many  thrilling tales of the prospector's life.  La Rose was so much enthused he  added the trade of prospector to his  own. When he was not hammering  on his anvil, he was hammering away  at the rocks \ and looking for fissures  that contained gold and silver or other  mineral. One afternoon, 100 yards  from his cabin, along the right of way  of the new railroad, he broke into a  fissure of rich mineral. Analyzed, it  had fabulous rvalue in; silver and cobalt.    They  located that fissure and  ^��'  called it La Rose, and from the first  100 feet in depth they .gleaned since  its discovery about $6,000,000.  Immediately the news of this discovery got out, the railroad contractors  and their friends,' began',gobbling" up  the vthole country around' La Rose  wonderful discovery. They called the  lake near the cabin, Cobalt lake. Arthur Ferland and Chambers acquired  1,000 acres of the new mineral zone.  They sold 800 acres to the .Earle  syndicate for $125,000, and two years  later, on advice of John Hays Hammond, the Guggenheims offered at the  rate of $25,000,000 to the Earle syndicate for control of the same 800 acres,  then called the Nipissing mine.���  Exchange.  ��\m COPPER  MATTERS OK   INTEREST   TO   THOSE   INTERESTED  COPPER   MINING   INDUSTRY  RNERj  IN    THE  ii,Tbei;.5ppper Situation looks Well.  It is estimated that the copper output.of'.:North.America for. 1.908-will  approximate 1,050,000,000 pounds.  This -estimate ..is ...made .from .98. per  cent, of all of the producers. Exports  for the year were nearly 600,000,0,00  pounds. Foreign demand for American  copper is increasing. The average  monthly consumption :of copper in  Europe In' =1908 increased 48 per cent,  over. 1907. These are healthy con-;  ditions and are encouraging to our,  producers.  It is reported that construction  work in the ship yards and engineering  factories: of Great Britain, iGermany  and France will, before spring, consume  fully seventy per cent, of the visible  ��upply in those countries. On the  25th.-of December;.the total amount of  copper in store in.,the British Isles,  Germany, France, J Belgium and ��� Holland was 78,000 tons.  While the copper market remained  abnormally dull during the year, with  prices at almost a no-profit standard,  yet the great stimulus to trade in  America during the past sixty days, and  the general revival of trade and manufacture, in Europe, warrants the expectation that the present year will be  profitable for copper, in which event  there will be a spirited rivalry for first  place between Montana and Arizona.  Michigan will probably take third place  in production. The year promises  well for every character of mining in  the United States.���Mining World.  Tooperlng Copper  ,    The ever interesting subject of tempering copper, again comes to the; front  in the statement that:an Arizona :man  has discovered a  method  for. accom.  plishing.it.   It is stated that a sample of copper  so treated has been subjected to test  with very satisfactory results. Tlie'prd  duct was sent.to the Colorado College  laboratory for analysis, and Frbf;  George J. Lyon on June 22 submitted  a report slating that the specimens had  a tensile strength of. 23,400 lbs. Jo the  square inch in ordinary copper, and  had an elastic limit of 5,'68ovIbs. to the  square inch. Jrhis-specimen-hadbeen  melted..;fiye times, and since copper  loses about 10% of its tensile strength  every time it is melted, the experts  regard 30,000 lbs. of tensile strength  to the square inch,as, a fair estimate ol  the hardened copper.���rMining;Science.  A Diet of Bovril  or BOVRIL sandwiches, quickly rebuilds wasted  strength, gives increased vitality to the system and  fortifies the body against many ailments.  Because BOVRIL yields more nourishment than  au}r other food.  BOVRIL is an invaluable diet for nursing mothers,  dyspeptics, and all who show any predisposition  towards tubercular affections.

Trie   re-di*covery   of a   se ret   that  ihas  lain   hidden   in   the  dust   of  20  .centuries is an event full of fascinating  .interest, and  ihe   story   of Zam-Buk,  the world famed first-aid and skin-curt-  .will always enlist attention.    Zam-Buk  ���=is the virtual descendant ol those won  iderful and mysterious herbal balms by  hthe use.of,which .the manly, athletes of  JAhcient Greece and the stalwart: gladi-  ;ators  of Rome ;ensured  the healthi-  iiness and ready h2aling of their skin.  Many were the attempts that were  '!rr>ade to produce a perfect balm for  gthe skin, but only in Zam-Buk has the  iSideal been realized. Since its dis-  ixovery Zam-Buk has been welcomed  ;]in mansion or cottage, and the people  4of two hemispheres realized that they  ^ihave been placed in possession of an  unique cure for skin complaints.  The reason of this triumph of science  are simple and few.    Taking a  lesson  -from the Ancients,  the proprietors of  Zam-Buk first of all wisely decided that  -the ideal balm   must be purely herbal  ;and coi tain not the slightest trace of  1 rancid animal fats or poisonous minerals.     Thus Zam-Buk  is  made  solely  'from rich and pure essences obtained  ifrom   certain   rare   medicinal   herbs  These juices and extracts are prepared  and refined by ingenious scientific pro-  ' cesses and then  so skillfully blended  I that a unique, effective, and yet perfectly natural preparation for dispelling  skin-disease is secured.  Zam-Buk  has   an   affinity  for  the  1 human skin such as no ordinary oint-  ��� ment or linament can possibly possess.  Besides   soothing   pain  and  allaying  irritation, it possesses unique antiseptic  and germicidal qualities which  virtually chase disease germs out of their  : hiding-places in the skin ; at the sanv  . time it purifies the pores and invigorates the natural functions ot  the skin  in a way that no other preparation can.  Zam Buk solves in a perlect mannt r  the problem of always having handy  . at home or at one's work  an  ever-  ready and reliable  first-aid for cuts,  burns,    scalds,    bruises,    lacerations,  scratches,  etc.    Zam-Buk  is  without  equal for eczema,  ulcers,  piles,  bad  leg, ringworm,   scalp  sores,   festerinp  sores,     sprains,     stiffness,    poisoned  wounds of all kinds, face sores, chafing  chapped hands, cold-sores,  frost bites,  sore-feei, diseased ankles, and all itching, irritation, and inflammation.  Zam-Buk is a daily need in every  household and is sold by all druggists  and stores ait fifty cents a box.

Bntitis the testimonyofthe mothers  and fathers who are rearing families,  who love their children, who must  economize aa to doctor bills, who are  raising little boys and girls lnto;men and  women of the future, it is the testimony'  of such people that really counts.  There ia no way to positively ascertain  how many families in the United States  rely upon Peruna for the many climatic  ailments to which tlie family is subject.  The number must be a great one. Sever4  al millions perhaps. They have learned  bow to use Peruna for ordinary ailments, and in that way are guarding  their homes against more serious diseases.  Such ailments as coughs and colds,  sore throat and catarrh, croup and colic,  indigestion and loss of appetite, anemia  and nervousness, all these ailments are  promptly relieved by a few doses of  Peruna at ihe right time.  Millions of provident mothers and  fathers are guarding the interests of tho  borne by using Dr. Hartman's great  remedy, and profiting by his medicii'  booklets and personal advice.

Few people realize how frequently  croup is caused by catarrhal congestion  of the throat. Probably nine cases out of  ten of croup is of the catarrhal variety.  The medical profession recognizes  three forms of croup. The spasmodic variety, membranous croup and catarrhal  croup.  Nearly every case isof the catarrhal variety, aud a few doses of Peruna taken at  the first appearance of the catarrhal  symptoms ii generally sufficient to avert  the attack of croup altogether.   ,  C-onp is a frightful disease. a No disease of children so alarm's the househoM.  Mrs. K. Kane, 196 Sebor St,, Flat 1, Chicago, III., writes:  "Peruna has been used so long in our family that I do not know;  how I could get along without it.  "I have given it to all of my five children at different times wnen j  they suffered with croup, colds and the many ailments that children  are subject to, and am pleased to say that it has kept them in splen- j  did health.  "I have also used It for a catarrhal difficulty of long standing,  and it cured me in a short time, so I have every reason to praise  Peruna."  Mr. John M.

Relief is generally felt  from the first few doses.  This prescription forces the clogged-  up, inactive kidneys to filter and strain  from the blood the poisonous waste  matter and uric acid, which causes  Rheumatism.  As Rheumatism is not only the most  painful and torturous disease, but dangerous to life, this simple recipe will  no doubt be greatly valued by many  sufferers here at home, who should at  once prepare the mixture to get this  relief.  It is said that a person who would  take this prescription regularly, a dose  or two daily, or even a few times a  week, would never have serious Kidney  or Urinary disorders  or   Rheumatism.  Cut this out and preserve it. Good  Rheumatism prescriptions which really  relieve are scarce, indeed, and when  you need it, you want it badly.
