COPPER CO.'S  ; RECORD APRIL RUN  Said to Haye Laid Copper in  New York at Lowest Figure  News comes from the head office in  New York that the British Columbia  Copper company was able to lay its  copper down in New York dgring the  month of April at the lowest, cost  which it has thus far reached, namely,  7.963 cents per pound. The lowest  cost reported prior to this was 9.999  cents. The nel profits for April were  reported $32,813 on a production of  659,959 pounds of copper.  The British Columbia Copper company has not yet reached the stage  where it is entirely independent of fuel  and labor troubles, aiid since May 5  the properties of the company have not  been able to operate on account of lack  oi fuel lor the smelter, occasioned by  the coal miners' strike in Eastern  British Columbia.  Although a conciliation board has  been at wortoendeavoring.to secure; a  settlement of the strike troubles such a  point has not yet been reached, so the  resumption of operations at the British  Columbia Copper properties is at least  a month distant.

As few mines, .other than those of  the Crow's Nest -Pass Coal company,  were mining coal there was not general  activity at the collieries. The Alberta  Railway' and Irrigation company is  erecting a big steel tipple and installing heavy plant apd ^machinery at No,  6, a new mine, situated about four  miles from Lettybridge at which development of the coal seam was one  lately commenced. The Diamond  mine,-distant by,road about twelve  miles from Lethbridge, is preparing for  shipment of coal, to be commenced  after the G.P.R. company's big steel  trestle-bridge over Belly river at Lethbridge shall be completed, about September next.

The main tunnel is in 1,200  feet, and 300 tons of coal are being  shipped daily.  The Crow's Nest Pass company is  steadily preparing for a much increased  output of Coal at both Michel and  Coal creek colleries, the further development of the .coal seams and additions  to equipment being with this end in  view.  The St. Eugene is producing between 500 and 600 tons of lead-silver  ore a day,.nearly'all of which is concentrated in the mill. Here, too, plant  is being added to and operations are  on;an, increasing scale.

Miners  Metal mining is the one iudustiy  that has madfeBritish Columbia.famous.  ,Had it not been for the''discoveries of  mines irf Kootenay and Yale districts  between 1890 and 1895, British Columbia would today be a province peo  pled by a. few stock raisers and lumbermen. The working of the mines near  Nelson and Ainsworth, the discoveries  in the Slocan, at Rossland, and in the  Boundary,-'brought people to the province. These people were not al1  miners. Some: ol them were born on  farms and knew how to work. They  cleared land,-, planted vegetables that  grew to perfection. Next they planted  fruit trees, that in time produced fruit  that won prizes in competiton with  fruit grown in other lands. They built  sawmills that made lumber from timber  growing in.districts that looked inaccessible. They developed water powers  that are among the largest in the world.  They built cities that are the equal of  those built in -older-settled countries.  They built school houses and churches.  They were good citizens, and became  part of the. permanent population of  the province. They did not encourage  the immigration' of Asiatics and they  did not employ those who were in the  country. British Columbia owes much  to metal mining.���Prince Rupert- Empire.    ���;"���'.' ��� .��� - - .-���''���'������ ;  Lever Brothers, Toronto, will send you  free a cake of������ their famous Plantol  toilet.soap, if you mention  this, paper.  pimh^  3  I DEANE'S HOTEL j  g   -DANNY DEANE, Proprietor.

The buying has been very  heavy throughout and has resulted in  advancing the price of Lake to 13^  to'13^, cents a pound while the quotation on electrolytic is now 13^ to  13^. Even at these prices there is  not much copper to be had as most of  the leading agencies are sold up ahead  for two or three months and they are  anxious to quote prices on distant deliveries. We know of one Lake producer who refused 13^0 cents for a  good sized block of the metal this week  and there are others who are practically doing the same.  The heavy buying is Sue" to the" fact  that   the   large  consumers   have  discovered   finally that  general   business  is improving rapidly and that the supply of copper is none too large.    They  have been buying from hand, to mouth  for some time but now that  they see  signs  of   prosperity   ahead    they  are  anxious to lay in  supplies.     In   trying  to do so they find that copper  is  not  so plentiful as they thought it was and  the advancing prices are the  result of  their efforts to make up  for  lost time.  With the producers  in  such  an  independent  position   as they  are at the  present time there is every reason  to  expect 15  cent copper  within   a   few  months,   possibly   sooner   than   that.  This is the opinion of the best posted  copper men in the  business  and they  hay'e been   right  for  a  long   time.���-  Copper Curb.  companies to play the part in copper  consumption they did before the-: 1907  crisis put a stop to most new construction;'..."'.'.   - A  ... ; ���":  Last month the hint was given by  William A.;"-Paine;' president of the  "Copper range," and identified with  half-a-dozen other successful mines,  that it is not generally appreciated how  much copper is taken by new demands,  ���as in the brass'beds popular only a  few years since,  How. long since there were subway  cars in New York to be sheathed with  copper? Modern office; buildings to  be walled, faced, roofed, and ornamented with copper sheets, . cornices,  and grille work ? automobiles and  motor cars, to use more than 10,000,-  000 pounds a year, largely in the form  of brass? railroad terminals like the  Pennsylvania's which alone has already  bought 1,000,000 pounds?  From the brass tube in the high  pressure locomotive boiler to the little  brass clips ;.so convenient with office  papers, this copper alloy is called for  in an increasing number of million  pounds every year.  On the tenth of last month were  published the April figures for the  United States,: Canada, and Mexico���'  at the record breaking rate of 3,785,-  809 pounds a day. This copper boom  has been going on for eighteen months.  The big mines have been running 100  per cent, capacity. Yet the increase  in the "stocks of copper on hand" for  April was less than a million pounds.  In former months this year it ranged  from nine to twenty-two millions.���Review of Reviews.  The payroll at the St. Eugene mine,  Moyie, last Thursday was $46,000  Strikes on the GnloYn 1'elle, Mother  Lode and Kootenay Belle at Sheep  creek were reported during the past  week.  The Ferguson mine at Ferguson and  the North Star at Kimberly.'east Kootenay, appeared on the shipping'list last  week lor the first time this year.  The Noble Five mine in the Slocan  will shoitly resume 'operations. The  property was oiie of ihe big shippers  in the early days, and is owned b>  Lieutenant-Governor Dunsmuir.  ��� The bondho'ders of trie Summit  mine at Sheep creek are waiting for  sn Iw to clear away to commence extensive development operations. There  is sufficient ore iti sight to pay for many  'months work With a large:staff.  The Canadian Metal Co. is going  into voluntary liquidation at a meeting  to be held in Nelson on June 12th.  S. S. Fowler will be appointed liquidator. A new company is to be formed,  known as the New Canadian Metal Co.,  with'a capital of $1,100,000.  Another gold brick was brought to  Nelson this week from the Nugget  mine. Its value is about $8,600 partly  representing a 2o:day run of the mill.  The whole proceeds of the run would  not go into the brick mould, the surplus being about 18 ounces, which  would bring the total value of the product of the run up to $8,350. This  value from a four stamp mill in the  same number of days has probably  never been equalled in  this  province.  miZttkettt Production  A preliminary report 011 the mineral  production of Canada' in 1908 has just  been prepared by the Department of  Mines, and as compared with the revised figures of 1907 shows an increase  of half a million dollars in value of  output.    The report says : .''.'���������'  A preliminary review of the mineral  production in Canada in iyo8rshows'a  total mineral output valued at slightly  over 87 million dollars as compared  with a little less than 87 million d.bllars  in 1907.  The industry has therefore in' the  aggregate more than held its own, despite the large decreases in the.'prices  of the metals. That this falling off in  the prices of the metals has been an  important and serious question for the  metal-mining industries will be better  realized when it is stated that had cop  ' .- v.  . ...        *  p^er, silver, lead and'nickel' maintained  as high average ih: 1908 as in. 1907,  their total production in Canada in  1908 would have been worth 8'miliioh  dollars more to the producer than was  actually the case.  ears,: Jf ad.

It' is intermingled with' copper glance and one  sample shows . jsome native copper.  This ore is from the ioofoot level in  tunnel No. f.
