Mr. Chishoim, whose failing health  has necessitated  the change, left in  company  with   his   brother,   P.   J.  Chishoim,   of Alexandria, Ont., for  points on  the Pacific coast.     H.J.

Mining  forward  the treatment of 2,000 tons  kaown ;��� Ms chy by   reason of his  daily is assured  It is estimated that over eight  million tons of ore have been developed above the lower tunnel, which  cuts the deposit at a depth of 865  feet. Drill holes have demonstrated  the continuance of this deposit to a  depth of 1500 feet, and the deepest  diamond drill cores secured gave  assays of 6 to 11 per cent copper.  The general average, however, is a  little over two per cent.  During the fiscal year, which  ended June 30, it is figured that  the company produced approximately 22,640,00Q pounds of copper  at a cost of 10^4 cents a pound. Its  net earnings must have been approximately $1,350,000,- or $9 a  share for the company's outstanding  capital stock. A portion ,of this  and tlie, proceeds ,of-the .bonds'recently sold are being used for the  ' development and equipment ofthe  new property.  After the new. "smelter  is. in commission, says the famous copper expert:, G.   L.   Walker,   that   is, next  year and   thereafter, Granby should  produce at   the   rate" of 40,000,000  to 50,000,000 pounds  of copper annually,   giving   it,  net   earnings   of  $5,000,000   a year   on   a   14  to 15  cent metal market.

Lee officiated on  Tuesday, July 22, at the weeding in  St. John's church, of Jacob Thompson Hindmore, for several year*  past a resident of Phoenix, and  Miss Elizabeth Wilson, of Pen-  ntddock, Cumberland, England*  The bride" was attended by Miss  Mary Hindman. sister ofthe groom,  and the latter was supported by W.  Slack of Phoenix. The bride, accompanied by her bridesmaid, arrived in the city on Saturday from  their home in Cumberland. The  newly-married couple have taken up  their residence near the Rawhide  mine. ���   ,  .  ��� . ,   >'-"-r���; * =   Boundary Ore Tonnages:  Arthur Leverett, accompanied by  his  brother Billy,   arrived   in   New  Hazelton    Tuesday    evening,    and  brought with them   some   fine looking yellow copper ore off the White  Grouse claim of the Ingenica group  which adjoins the   Daley West and  the Centre Star, three miles south of  New Hazelton on   Roche'r de Boule  Mountain.     Eddie Kohse, Bob Marion, Jack Westervelt are driving an  adit on   the  ore.    There  are eight  claims in the group, and  they have  found good leads on all  of them so  far. ��� ��� - ��� .-*���'������  The Wall Street Journal is, responsible for the weird story that  there is a man in Wall* Street, who,  for 30 years, has invested or. speculated in mining stocks on a system,  and has not yet cashed a bet.' He  bought only the cheapest stock,  paying in   no   case   more   than 15c.  Still Predicts a Rise in Copper  The world cannot be supplied  with copper through the work of  men who go out into the hills and  dig ore as individual farmers provide the world with food. It takes  a lot of money, a considerable portion of which must be subscribed  by speculators who are willing1 to  take a risk, to develop and equip a  big successful Coppermine. Before  corporations began doing this work  on a large scale, with machinery,  technical knowledge and system to  aid them, the public paid 40 to 55c.  a pound for its copper.  It is wholly within the range of  possibility that copper may again  sell at 30 cents a pound. If it sold  .at that price for one year, producing companies in general would  earn from 25 to 75 per cent on  the present selling price of their outstanding capital, stocks. Something  approaching this condition is practically sure to come, due to the, fact  that new   mines   are   not being fin  "H-b !m g  B. C.

His holdings  of these four he could sell for approximately $250.  fore it terminates.-  The world is using more and more  I copper from year to year. Present  sources of supply are hardly adequate to meet the demand, notwithstanding seven or eight of the present  big producers  began   putting  The' British Columbia Copper  company's production has fallen off  somewhat recently, due to the lower average grade of the ore now be-  mined; but notwithstanding this and  the decline in. the price of copper,  the company is still able to show  a small operating profit from month  to month.  During the past year the management has examined a large number  of outside mining properties and  bonded several with a view to  strengthening-its position. Extensive �� diamond drilling and underground exploratory work have been  done on the Princess group of  claims in the Copper Mountain district, near /Princeton, B.C., with  most, satisfactory results. More  than 1,500,000 tons of ore have been  developed so far of an.appreciably  higher grade than that now being  treated by the company. Plans are  being made to concentrate this ore  and ship the concentrates to the  Greenwood smelter.  The management has been experimenting with the oil flotation system of concentration and results so  -showed a production of 11,146,811  pounds of copper, 142,025 ounces  of silver and $517,253 in gold. The'  net earnings amounted to $425,985,  and $177,513 was disbursed as  dividends.' During the year the  company paid on account of new  properties, and expended oh their  exploration and development, the  sum of $229,489.  General Manager O. Lachmund,  accompanied by Frederic Keffer,  consulting engineer, and H. Johns,  ofthe B.C. Copper company, last  week visited the L. H. mine near  New Denver, and held a consultation with the owners in reference to  an extension of time on the bond.  An extension of six months was  granted and development is to be  continued.  According to the News Miner,  Republic,- the B.C. Copper company  are conducting negotiations for the  purchase ofthe Mountain Lion mine  and mill. J. Lome McDougall of  Ottawa, representing the McLaren  estate, the principle owners ofthe  property, was in Republic, Wash.,  a few days ago, in connection with  the deal.

Labor Day Committees Elected  (The  second   meeting,   called   for  the purpose  of  discussing  the promotion in   Phoenix  of a  Labor Day  celebration, was  held  on Thursday  in   the   lodgeroom    of   the    Union  building.    Contrary   to the general  impression, a  much wore sympathetic     feeling     exists   towards   the  scheme than  was generally supposed, and all  those present on Thursday pledged  themselves   to support  in every  possible   way the object in  view.   Angus McPherson was elected to   the   chair pro tern,  and later  in the evening he  agreed  to accept  the post of president  of the celebration   committee.     D.   A.   Vigneaux  and Jas. Marshall were  also eleeted  secretary and treasurer respectively.  On the   motion   of D.   Patterson,  seconded   by   D.   A.   Vigneaux,    a  committee  of three for the purpose  of canvassing the town, and  in fact  all sources  of prospective  revenue,  was  elected; the  said committee to  report  at a  later date  the result of  their mission.      The following composed the committee:  Jos. Strutzel,  Geo. Ellis and Jas. Walsh.  and Mrs. R. Blundell, of this city,  received a .22 calibre bullet in the  head, from a rifle carried by a little  boy. The child, who was camping  by the lake in company with her  sister and brother, Ida and Edward,  was put picking berries, and it is  stated was walking behind a boy  carrying a rifle on his shoulder,  when by some means the weapon  exploded, the projectile striking the  little girl over the left eye. She  was hurried as quickly as possible  to the Grand Forks hospital, and  according to a telephonic communication from her brother Arthur on  Friday, was resting easy and is fully  conscious. Much sympathy is expressed in town for the little sufferer  and her parents.

The cavalcade started for the   scene  about   ten   o'clock,   and in    a   very  short    time   after   the   arrival  the  children were partaking of an appetizing "spread"  of the good things  provided.    The   campers  were favored  with  gloriously  fine  weather,  rather a   little too   fine   if anything,  but nevertheless  all seemed  to pass  a most enjoyable   day.     The   return  trip was commenced about 4.30 p.m.  and in   spite   of an  execrable  road,  which in  some places  is  as narrow  as   the   road   to   Heaven,   all   were  It was  mentioned at   the   meeting that the  work of fixing up the new recreation j ^"J safe| ;n tQWn ;��� d time  ground   was  proceeding apace, and i J  on Sunday   a   large   number   of the | *or supper,  boys had signified  their intention of   ~ ~*~  invading the ground with the on- \ About 3,500 men are now work-  ject of boosting the enterpise along | ing on the building of the Kettre  towards completion. j Valley railway.

'  White Slave Traffic in Canada  ^ The following communication has  been addressed to> the press of  Canada, and undoubtedly deserves  the serious attention of every man  and woman in the country. The  communication is signed by J. G.  Shearer, chairman; T. A. Moore,  secretary; J. F. Wildman, treasurer:  It is only under a painful sense  of duty that we' address you and  invite your help in the strenuous  war being waged against the atrocious traffic in girls, popularly known  as the. White Slave  Traffic.    -  The existence  in   Canada,   as   in  other  countries,   of  this  diabolical  business is evidenced by court   proceedings, by the experience of rescue  workers, by the  signing of   "The  Treaty for the Suppression  of the  White    Slave    Traffiic"   by   nearly  sixty   governments   (Canada   being  one),   and   by the action of the British Parliament, the American Congress  and     many    other    national  legislatures,   in   enacting   stringent  laws   for   its . suppression.        The  opinion    of    our'own   Domininion  Government,    as    to   the   need   in  Canada, is shown by the introduction  of the   Bill to   amend  the  Criminal  Code   now  before   Parliament,   imposing the severest penalties' for the  procuring, or enslaving, or exploiting of girls, and for the arrest without warrant,   on   reasonable  suspicion,,   of   those  engaging  in    the  traffic.  Hoi}. S. W. Finch, special com.  missoner appointed by the Government of the United States, referring to that country, states:  "It is estimated that not less than  25,000 young women and girls are  annually procured for this traffic,  and no less than 50,000 men and  women are engaged in procuring  and living on the earnings of these  women and girls; and the number  of women and girls engaged in  prostitution in this country at the  present time is  not  less  than   25,-  ity, thus bringing the work in a  practical way before the, people  throughout the country.

Props.,Sherbrooke, Que. (A)  It is reported that in Great Britain more than 200 procurers and  procuresses fled from that country  within forty-eight hours of the  coming into force of -the recently  enacted White Slave Act of the  Imperial   Parliament. There    is  every reason to believe that the  traffic is as extensive in Canada as  other lands. ���  After due investigation and careful consideration by social workers  in Canada. "The National Committee for the Suppression of the  White Slave Traffic" was organized.  The wide-spread interest in the  work of this committee is apparent  from the list of bodies which have  federated therein.  The consent of their Royal Highnesses, the Duke and Duchess of  Connaught, to become patron and  patroness,' and of eminent citizens  to act as honorary vice-presidents,  indicates the earnest desire of leading Canadians to assist in destroying this inhuman traffic.  The plans of the committee are  to work along the line of:���  (a) Education���By literature, lecture and conference, using the press,  platform and pulpits, the home, the  school aud every means by which  the people may become informed  and this awful vice stamped out.

Hartwell   Conder,   State   Mining  engineer for the Tasmanian government, writes to  his   government of  a strange adventure that   befell two  members of his staff. The engineers  in question  were walking along the  shore on the northern coast of Tasmanian,'when  at a  distance of half  a   mile they   noticed   a  dark object  among the  sand  dunes  which surprised   them   by  showing signs   of  movement. According to their story  they   advanced   to  within   fifty   or  sixty  yards of it, and   when within  forty yards distant, the object   rose  suddenly  and  rushed   into the sea.  After getting out about thirty yards  it stopped and turned  round, showing  only  the   head   for about   five  seconds and disappeared.  The characteristics are summarized as follows: It was 15ft long.  It had a very small head, about the  size of a collie dog, with - a thick  arched neck, passing gradually into  the barrell of the body. It possessed no definite tail or fins. The skin  was furred, and of a dark chesnut  color. It was a quadruped and  travelled by bounding���i.e., .by  arching its back and ��� gathering up  its body, so that the footprints of  the forefeet were level with those  of the hind feet. It's footprints  showed a circular impression with  a diameter (measured) of 9in., and  the marks of four claws about 7in.  long, extending outwards from the  impressions and away from the  body.

Ask Your Doctor About That  For   humane work,   and   acts   of  great  heroism,   the   Dominion  department of Indian affairs intend to  grant a substantial  reward to Chief  Weeman Oseekis and Sam Batiste,  two Indians  of the  Babine reserve,  British Columbia.  Weeman Oseekis  last winter   cared   for   a white man  who  had strayed  from   his   friends  and afterwards became insane.   The  other Indian  supplied provisions to  two prospectors, Frank'Rahmorand  W. H.   Wrigley, who were wintering on the  Indian hunting grounds.  The white   men   had   unfortunately  ran out of provisions and were taken  into camp by Batiste who, with his  family went without food for several  days as a result of their hospitality  to the strangers.

The Delicacy ofthe Summer Season���  FAMOUS CURLEW ICE CREAM-TRY ONE  Antonio Cervo     knob hill avenue  ��� The old - Liberal contention that  "Canada owes nothing- to the  motherland," had to do originally  with the naval defence question pure  and simple. But it has recently  been made to embrace every conceivable point upon which the plain  duty of Canada is acknowledged by  all right-thinking-men to rest.  Canadian   financiers   are   coming  back  from   London   with   the news  that the Liberal action in killing the  /naval aid bill has greatly injured the  position  of Canada from  a borrpw'-  ing standpoint.    Great  Britain has  for  years   provided    Canada   with!  capital for great works  of development.     And   Great   Britain Has riot  only provided this capital, but pro-  .vided. it  on more   generous  terms  than she has  accorded to any other  borrower.    Sentiment   has   led   the  British   people to supply their own  fellow subjects over-sea with money  at least  one per  cent  cheaper than  foreign   countries,   and   Sir   Edgar  Speyer calculated   recently   that the  annual    interest     savings    to   the  dominions . and   dependencies  is  at  least $50,000,000, a very handsome  preference.      In other words for the  same    payments    of  interest   these  countries   have   been   able  to  raise  $1,250,000,000 additional capital.  Moreover, to the detriment, be it  said, of consols, Great Britain has  added to her list of Trustee stocks  about $3,250,000,000 of colonial  and Indian stocks and thus enabled  the dominion, provincial and state  governments of the Empire to raise  $630,000 annually from 1887 to  1902 and from 1902 to 1907 gave  $1,000,000 a year when a local fleet  was established on a big basis, including a battleship.  New Zealand gave $100,000 from  .1887 to 1902 and from 1902 to 1907  $200,000 a year when the contribution was raised to $500,000 annually,  in addition to the gift of a dreadnought-battleship. '  7 Natal from 1897 to 1902 gave  towards the Imperial navy the sum  of $60,000 annually, and hince 1902  has given $175,000 annually.  Cape Colony from 1897 to 1902  supported the Imperial navy with  an annual gift of $150,000, and  since 1902 have contributed yearly  the sum of $200,000.  The colony of Newfoundland has  given $15,000 a year for the past  eleven years towards the maintenance of a branch of the Royal Naval  Reserve.  The Malay States have contributed a big battleship.  Canada, which claims to be the  most importarit-of all the over-seas  dominions, has never yet subscribed  anything.  The hjgh cost of living has ceased  to trend upwards. On the other  hand it shows no signs of sagging  downwards.        .  The upward tendency which has  been apparent since June, 1911,  apparently reached its ciimax six  months ago. During the six months  the new high point reached in the  latter part of 1912 has simply been  maintained. At the ^department of  labor, the index finger employed to  indicate the fluctuations of the cost  of living has remained between 130  and 137. This means th^t people  pay 37 per cent more for living now  than they did ten years ago.

Britain gives to the trade preferences of the dominions, the enormous advantages the latter gain by  the preferential treatment of their  issues, both by the people and the  government of Great Britain, should  not be forgotten. If some great  convulsion checks the flow of capital from Great Britain no other  lender will be found from whom  such favorable terms can be obtained.  ���. ��.   Commenting on the trouble at the  Rand mines,   the  Montreal Witness  says that '-'it seems to  have been a  contest between a despotic government and   an  anarchistic medley of  miners,   equally   despotic   in   their  ways.     It was an undemocratic act  and   against   British   principles   for  the    government   to   prevent   free  speech  on  a  pnblic  square and to  ride down a  crowd that was letting  off its feelings in that way.      It was  an    anti-democratic    act     for    the  strike organization   to  suppress the  newspapers.     Both parties were too  ready with their hands and weapons.  But,   behind   all,    the    government  would   seem   to  be   at  fault in permitting    murderous   conditions    to  exist at the mines, whose operatives  are, or   have  been in   revolt.     It is  said   of  the    whole    white   mining  population   of  ten or   twelve thousand, more than a third are attacked  each year with lung disease caused  by rock dust and  explosive emanations, and  that   all   lives   are early  doomed.    A  business carried  on at  such a cost of life is wholesale murder   and   should   be   suppressed  by  government till these conditions are  changed.     The legislature that permits it to go on deserves to have its  very existence  imperilled   by a dangerous   population;    for   only   the  most reckless sort  of people would  for    any   wage   accept   such   conditions.  upset prices and   such further terms)  and conditions as he may see fit.  A certain E. Marchant of Vancouver, rushed into print lately over  the fact, that his grandfather had  the honor of making a pair of pants  for King Louis Phillippe of France.  But what is that to our record. Did  not our maternal ancestor construct  a very serviceable piece of semi-  ready clothing "out of fig leaves for  the old man, aeons before Louis  Phillipe and his tailors were even  thought of.  d.-'l.
