Not a few  of the existing- mining- companies  will earn and pay eventually in divi.  dends several times the present  market prices of their stocks, even  though the metal should never sell  any higher than 14c. a pound.

During- these same few years, however,  the tendency has been for the man-  agemental point of view to undergo  a material and Highly important  change. Managements are coming  to realize'more fully than they" ever  did in the past that every producing  mine is in a way a liquidating proposition. Each ton of ore taken out  means that there-is one less ton left  in the property. Notwithstanding  such an operation may be extremely  profitable while it lasts and that it  may return to stockholders several  times their original investment, it is  rapidly coming to be an accepted  policy that a mining company should  if   possible  be  made a  permanent  give attention to, and .spend money  for, the investigation'of-other properties with a view to increasing the  stability of their investments.  New Election Law Clause  Mining Notes of British Columbia  Back to the Trail  , At the last session of thejegisla-  ture a|>Victoria, a new clause in the  ���Jlectjon law was inserted in the bill  making it obligatory for all naturalized Canadians' to produce their  naturalization papers when applying  to be placed on the list of voters.  The clause reads as follows:  "The registrar shall not insert  upon such list the name of any applicant who is or claims to be a  British subject by naturalization by  virtue of section 36 of the Naturnli-  ^.ili..-> *������(, n '!>"������:> the said form N-2  n> tur led I., in accoidance with  this act, and- shows such applicant  to be a British subject by naturalization by virtue of section 36 of the  Naturalization Act and to be .entitled to have his . name placed on  the register of voters."  tie  ML  business enterprise. Several companies have adopted this policy and  used a portion of their, profits and  laised.new capital   to ��� explore, test  .and    purchase    additional,   mining  ^.rr^pi^Nt^^acli  from, time to time laysin a new stock  of raw materials.'  As a result of such action by the  Granby Consolidated management  that company's' stock has advanced  more than-300% in a period when  mining shares generally have been  declining. This has created a demand from stockholders of many I and rescued both of them after cob  companies that  their  managements   siderable difficulty.  Labor Day in Phoenix  The success attending the Phoenix Labor Day celebration of last  year has prompted a number of  people in town to call a public  meetiug for the -purpose of making  .the preliminary arrangements for  holding a similar event on September next. Labor Day has generally  been recognized throughout the  Boundary as the day of the year for  Phoenix, that is as far as celebrations are concerned, and no doubt  everyone interested will make a  special point of being,present in the  lodgeroom of the Union building, on  Tuesday,-July    28.      The   tneetinp 1 g^mour , narrows^ ...off. yaqci  Ike Thompson, a pioneer from the  Slocan is developing a number of  gold-copper properties near Jed way,  Moresby Island.  Five carloads of oil-drilling machinery and plant have been received  at Vancouver by steamer from San  Francisco, California, for re-shipment by railway to the Alberta oil  fields^  Henry Nixon, one of the Fire  Wardens on the Chilliwack river  limits was in Chilliwack Ti esday for  a short time. He reports considerable activity in mining and prospecting in the Baker group. One'canip,  the Scott, is milling about a thous.  and dollars of gold a week.  It has been announced that a concentrating plane is to be obtained for  the Surprise mine, above Cody. Beside having shoots of silver-lead ore  of good grade, there is much lead-  zinc ore opened in the mine, and to  make the latter marketable tbe provision of concentrating machinery is  necessary.  Andy Jensen is down from Summit Camp. He is taking in four  men to open up the new discovery  on the north slope of Treasure  Mountain, the vein of which is a  continuation of the Treasure Mountain lead. All is in readiness for  hauling ore as soon as the road is  completed.���Sun. f  ,,The Granby Con. company's hulk  Gerard C. Tobey, formerly 'an  American bark, which left T acorn1 a,  Puget Sound, on July 3   in .tow ' of I larger quantity of ore is being ship-  the steamer "Amur, was  wrecked in I ��ed fronf~.  The Hedley Gold Mining company  has declared the second quarterly  dividene of 3 per cent for the yearj,  amounting to $60,000. This make's  a total of1 $120,000 distributed in  dividends so far this year and $1,-  272,000 distributed in dividends  since the mine was taken over by  the present company in July, 1909,  and is equivalent to 106 per cent on  the capitalization.  A lead vein has been uncovered on  the Rocher de Boule Wonder group.  O. B. Wallace came down for the  week end and brought some fine  samples of new ore with him. He  says that he has a vein of from two  and a half feet, and-the surface  samples certainly show some fine  lead ore. There is also a little copper running through it, but the lead  predominates. Mr. Wallace feels  much encouraged by the new find.  The Le Roi No. 2 has been granted an option by the Giant-California  company at Rossland, on the two  claims, Giant and California, and  has commenced to work them. The  agreement covers several years and  necessitates practically continuous  work by the optionees. The Le Roi  No. 2 administration .will direct  operations chiefly through the workings of the Josie mine, owned by  them, since three of the Josie levels  abut on California ground adjoining  the Annie claim.  Another, copper-smelting furnace  having been, blown in at the Consolidated   Co.'s   works   at   Trail, , a  Narcisse Lemieux, of the municipal   board   of works,   who   recently  returned to town after attending the  old-timers' reunion   in   Nelson, took  to the   wilds  again   this   week after  enjoying the comfort's of civilization  for some years,      Nels, who is   one  ofthe  oldest pioneers  in the Bouu-  dary,   left   in    company   with   Bert  Davies   on a prospecting trip to the  headwaters of the Kettle river.   The  principle point headed] for is 'in the  neighborhood   of Monashee    mountain lying between   the  Arrow   and  Okanagan lakes,   a   district seldom  troubled with   the   visit   of either a  white or red man,     The idea of this  trip  occurred   to   Nels   some years  ago when   a   friend   of  his showed  him some likely looking gold quartz  that he had "picked   up   near Monashee, but   who   on   going back was;  unable   to   find  tlie   source   of   the  float owing to  the   recent visit of a  forest fire.     Nels,   however,   thinks  he  knows   the   spot, hence his   adventurous trip into the tall timbers.  He says that   all  the   creeks  at the  headwaters of the Kettle riveV show  colors.     The  party  travels via Carmi   and will   endeavor to   negotiate  as-as   possible   on  horseback, after  that   it will   be   a   case   of   Shank's  mare.      The    return    trip    will,   be  easier and will   be   accomplished  on  rafts.  Farewell to Phoenix  Working Chelan Claims  Alex. Peterson, another of the  old-timers of the Kootenay and-  Boundary, left on Thursday morning to continue development on his  mining property in the Lake Chelan  district of Washington. The claims  which are fourteen in number, are  considered among the most promi >~  ing in that section of the state", assays from picked samples ranging  as high as $240 to $360 in gold,  silver^ and copper. A general assay,  however, taken two years ago  which was considered a fair sample,  returned $134.80, $56 of which was  in silver. Mr. Peterson has refused  what many people think was a  very tempting offer.  /  C. P. R. Train Alteration  On account of the closing down  of the British Columbia Copper  company's Rawhide mine and the  consequent cessation of ore shipments via the C.P.R., the train  crew of the passenger who have  hitherto made their headquarters at  Eholt will in future run right  through to Grand For"ks.  Mr. and Mrs. Herb. Neil severed  their connection with Phoenix this  week, and left on ^Monday's train  for the borne  Examination Results  The results of the usual annual  examinations for admission to the  high school of the province, which  for this district were held in Greenwood on June 22, were made public  by the department at Victoria this  week.

I tramp at a garden party.  A Catastrophe  Cats are known to carry considerable electricity around with them,  consequently there isn't much room  for more than only a slight extra  amount in their bodies. Here is a  case of one that suffered severely  from a slight overcharge of 20,000  volts. About a month ago (ask  the sub-station staff why we put it  down at a month) a cat with one  of its nine lives to spare, wandered  into the old Cascade sub-station in  pursuit of a bird. The plant is still  supplying power, and the apparatus  is always alive, though it requires  no constant attention and hence is  kept locked up. Cautiously pussy  crept after her intended dinner,  which eventually perched itself on  the switchboard. Not to be outdone, puss did a little climbing and  took up a favorable position nearby.  Then followed a lightning spring  that caused the operator at Cascade  to wonder where all the extra load  was coming from.  The sequel followed within the  time above stated, when the inspector under the impression that a  glue factory had started in the  neighborhood, sallied out to investigate with a can of chloride of lime.  The search, however, terminated on  Saturday evening, when the remains  of what was 6nce undoubtedly a cat  were discovered lying around the  switchboard in sections.  Grand Forks Visitors  Thos. A. Mclntyre, merchant of  Grand Forks, whose strange disappearance two week's ago, caused  his relatives and friends considerable  uneasiness, has been located in Ta-  coma, Wash;  R. J.' Gardner ofthe Grand Forks  firm of Miller and Gardner, accompanied by Mrs. Gardner, motored  up from the valley in Al. Altn-  strom's car on Wednesday and are  the guests of the latter for a few  days. Mr, Gardner, who is a member of the Grand Forks board of  trade, says that the promise of an  excellent harvest in his district  grows daily more encouraging. Unfortunately the delay in opening the  new cannery has occasioned some  disappointment, but hopes are  strongly entertained that everything  will be in readiness to handle a portion of the tomato and corn crop,  and later on the apples and pears.  Over $14,000 has been expended on  the building alone, which is a most  substantial structure of brick and  cement. N  Baker-Bell  The wedding of George Alex.  Stuart Bell, late of the Royal navy,  to Miss Constance Mary Baker,  was solemnized on Tuesday, July  21, at St. John's church, the vicar,  Rev. Laurence B. Lee, officiating.  Both of the contracting parties are  residents of Grand Forks district,  where the bridegroom has been  ranching for the past three years.  The birthplace of the bridegroom  was given as Plastow, Essex, ling-  land, and that of the bride, Ihe historic cathedral city of St. Albans,  E-igland.

The judgment was unanimous.  Since the Dominion order-in  council went into effect prohibiting  the immigration into Canada for a  period of six months of Chinese, a  great falling off in Chinese travel  is noticeable.

A very promising placer strike is  reported to have been made at a  point thirty-five miles to the south  of, Big Eddy on the Fraser river.  Fifteen claims were staked on the  ground a few days after the news  leaked out and a local company has  seven men employed transporting a  hydraulic outfit to the place. It is  said that the place has been worked  before, as tailings and old'wheelbarrows are still to be seen together  with the remains of an old shack.  On Saturday last there was a  wholesale invasion of the New  Westminster market by the Orientals.

Getting Even  The whole tax-paying population  of Ulster probably will have to pay  for the damage done in that province by the militant suffragettes.  Sir/Hugh McCalmont, a former  Unionist member of parliament, has  brought an action against the  county of Antrim for $55,000 for  the destruction of his magnificent  residence by suffragettes in March  last.  The action is brought under a law  that applies only to Ireland, and  which was enacted at the time of  the Nationalist militant campaign  in favor of Home Rule. Under this  law a county is responsible for any  damage done by mobs or persons  and must also pay for any extra  police protection sent in anticipation of violence. Should General  McCalmont's action be successful  the taxpayers of Antrim will have  to pay an extra tax of nearly four  cents on the dollar to cover the  damage.
