The syndicate which has recently  been operating the Riverside mine on  the West Fork will shortly incorporate  as a stock company.  , The C.P.R. has been requested to  replace the switch taken from the Rawhide spur and have the track put in  shape for shipping   from the property.  Frederic Keffer, consulting engineer  far the British Columbia Copper company, was in camp on Thursday looking ovtr the progress of work at the  Rawhide'mine,   '  On Thursday the air pipe from the  Dominion compressor to the Rawhide  mine was found to be leaking where it  is covered by Granby waste dump-  About abo feet of new-piping was installed to carry the air over the dump  and the line will again be in commission on Monday.  At the Snowshoe mine the ore shipments to Trail smelter have been cut  down to 300 tons daily, and the force  is correspondingly reduced. 'This will  afford an opportunity of mining a slightly better grade of ore with the present  shipping facilities. The shipments are  being curtailed, however, as the result  of the Consolidated company haying  some new shippers of similiar grade of  ore in East Kootenay and have of late  been receiving an over-supply- of- low-  grade ores at the Trail smelter.  Jay P. Gra^es, vice-president and  general manager of the Granby company, attended the June meeting of the  directors in New York and made a  report, prepared and completed after  making an inspection of the properties.  No action was taken by the directors  on his report, which has not been  made public. The report of tbe company for Ihe fiscaj year ending Juue 30,  igio.'wiNVTt in stated, compare favorably with ihe prfeeding year's report,  when a surplus of $234,506 was shown  Operaiions at the ' mines'and smelter  ire going along as usual, the smelter  treating slightly over 3000 tons per  day.

Naden, formerly of Greenwood were among the candidates for  aldermen in the first council of the  city of Prince Rupert. ' It appears to  have been a fight between themselves  for the eighth position on the new  council; Mr. Stephens was elected on  the first count of the ballots, but Mr.  Naden appears to have replaced him  on the recount. On the; first count  Mr. Stephens got 447 votes and Mr.  Naden 412; on the recount the former  got 442 and the latter 449.  An important announcement was  made in Phoenix this week, when  Charles Biesel, superintendent of the  Consolidated company's Snowshoe  mine, received instructions (rom Victoria to proceed with the construction  of a wagon road from Hartford Junction to the company's No. 7 mine, in  Central camp.  On Wednesday Mr.Bieseland Road  Superintendent Spraggett blazed the  trail and on Thursday the surveyors  were running their lines. Next week  three gangs of men will commence the  building of.the road, which is to be  completed within thirty days. Operations will commence at both ends and  at the centre, and about too men will  be employed. ���'!'���������;'���..  The new road will be nearly five  miles in length and from the trial sur  vey it is stated there will be no heavy  grades���in fact the road will be practically level���and will bring the company's recently acquired No. 7 mine  within six miles from their Snowshoe  property, from which supplies are secured. The Snowshoe and No. 7 mines  are both at an altitude of about 4500  feet, while Hartford Junction and the  tunnel at the No. 7 are 4300 feet.  The survey follows the'gulch and it is  expected a first-class road can be made  at a moderate cost  Over the new road the No. 7 mine  will be practically only, six miles distant itonx t>tioeii'x,���w4i'ch. will mean  a hi|j boot, to both the' Consolidated  company and the merchants of the city.

When   the  THE NEW DOMINION  CO.'S FIRST REPORT  Considerable Expenditure But  No Net Earnings  At the first annual meeting'of the  New Dominion Copper company held  in New York recently, Newman Erb,  vice-president, made a report for the  fiscal year to March 31, 1910, as  follows:  "The New Dominion Copper Co.'  on June 1 7th, 1909, acquired the property of the Dominion Copper Co. from  the reorganization committee together  with $347,999 cash. There having  been nonet earnings during the period,  no payments were made on the income  bonds on April 30.  "There was paid off $13,389 labor  claims outstanding against the old company, while other expenses totaling  $26,936 were incurred through diamond drill operations on the Rawhide  mine for'five months.  "An experimental contract has been  entered into whereby the British Columbia Copper Co. will treat 25,000  tons of our ores. Indications are that  the New Dominion cannot furnish from  1000 to 2000 tons of ore daily, so that  the erection of a new mill would not  be justified."  John A. Sleicher has been succeeded as director by Clifford A, Chaffee, while at the first annual stockholders' meeting the following were reelected for the ensuing year: New-  wan Erb, N. Bruce Mackelvie, F. L.  Sommer, Charles A. Starbuckj Lucius  \V. Mayer, who will be elected president, and W. W. Foster.

They are  expected to arrive at-an agreement on  Monday, and the dirt will be flying and  construction in progress within a fortnight.  , The valuation board is composed of  L. M. Rice, representing the Kettle  River railway company; R. F. Green;  the nominee of the provincial government, and Judge Forin of Nelson,  agreed upon as independent commissioner. In company with President  James J. Warren of the Kettle River  Valley railway, spent the greater part  of the week on the field of operations,  passing west from Midway early in the  week. Their inspection and investigations will result in an estimate of the  amount to be paid for the abandoned  road, the payment for such being applied to the outstanding indebtedness  of the Midway & Vernon.

There are  few of the districts now coming to the  front that he has not* prospected and  he was over the Portland Canal district  jn the seventies.    Mr: Hallinger is also  a veteran prospector and both have resided at McKinney for a number of- -  years, where they are interested in af'  number, of claims.   They maintain that:  there are some of the best prospects in  the province,located.jn the vicinity of  McKinney,   which   are   today  being  overlooked   in  the; stampede for the  boomed centres.

FURNISHINGS  WATCHES PRESENTED  ON EVE OF DEPARTURE  H. W. Heidman and R. Brown  Leave the Granby  During the week two old employees  of the Granby' mines have severed their  connection with the company and left  for other fields of activity, in the per  sons of H. W. Heidman, shiftboss, and  Robert Brown, head carpenter. On  the eve of their departure each was  presented with a handsome gold watch  and chain and expressions of regret in  their leaving by fellow employees of  the company.  Mr. Heidman came to Phoenix  shout twelve years aeo and during the  greater part of the time since then has  been connected with the Granby mine,  the past four years as shiftboss. On  Tuesday he left for the now-famed  Portland Canal district, having been  appointed to an important position in  connection with the Big Casino Mining  company's properties. The properties  are known as the Big Casino group  and adjoin the Red Cliff, located on  American creek near its junction with  Bear Creek. Mr. Heidman's family  will remain in Phoenix till fall.  Mr. Brown has been connected with  the Granby company for s ime years*  'atterly as head carpenter. He left  with his family on Saturday for New  Zealand, where he will become as  ���iociated with his uncle, who is a large  lumber dealer.  camp will not only go from Phoenix,  but machinery for the mine, which in  the past has been shipped to Green  wood or Boundary Falls, will be shipped to Hartford Junction and taken in  over the easy grade.  Mr. Biesel, who has been largely  responsible in securing the appropriation from the government to build the  road, is to be congratulated on the excellent service he has rendered the city  of Phoenix as well as his company.  A Narrow Escape  A bear tethered to a post east of  the King's hotel, which has been much  of a pet to many passers by for some  months, was nearly the cause of a  fatality last Saturday afternoon, when it  caught Eftle Larson, the eight year  old daughter of Gus Larson, and left  wounds of its claws on her neck and  shoulder.  The little girl was feeding the animal  when it playfully caught her with its  paws and inflicted 'gly wounds. The  screams of the child attracted the attention of several people, Mrs. Arthur  Webster hurrying to the scene and  rescuing the prisoner. Only the  timely arrival of assistance saved the  child's life.  The wounds which were caused by  the claws of the bear were dressed by  Dr. Dickson and she is now out of  danger. The little girl displayed  wonderful nerve although terrified by  her experience.  The bear is one of two cubs caught  about a year ago and was owned by  H. F. Libby. It has been removed  from its recent camping grounds.  The incident should serve as a lesson  to those who would make pets of wild  animals. They may be all right for an  indefinite period, but their wild instincts are liable to break loose at any  moment.

Perkins in June Busy Man's.  Working quietly in a little smithy in  the heart of the Nicola Valley unobserved of homeseeker, proprietor or  miner, A. Grenier claims to have discovered the method of tempering copper, or rather to have rediscovered it,  for it is believed that the process was  known to the ancients and also to the  Aztecs, the race of highly civilized  people Who inhabited Mexico before  the Spanish conquest.  "I have been working two years endeavoring to discover a chemical com  bination which wouId so wotk upon  copper as to temper it to make it  harder than chilled . steel/'says * Mr.  Grenier, "and now I have discoved it."  Since boyhood Mr. Grenier has  taken an intense interest in the, manufacture and tempering of those metals  which are now so extensively used -in  our modern commerce and industry.  For msny.years he followed the calling  61 blacksmith,: principally in connection with big mining operations, in this  country, and the United States.  "Several; years ago I began to think  ���About the tempering of copper," said  Mr. Grenier. "I had already done  considerable studying, and was aware  that certain of the nations of ancient  times were possessed of the secret.  "Two 1 years ago I decided to go to  the Nicola Valley, where I built a  smithy and laboratories. I worked assiduously. Disappointment after disappointment came in rapid succession,  but I did not give up and at last I was  successful. I am now possessed of the  secret of manufacturing case-hardened  steel and which will take the place of  steel for tools and for plating of steamships and war vessels.  "While the cost of hardened copper  Will be somewhat higher than that of  steel, this will be .more than counterbalanced by the fact that it has a finer  gram than steel and; will wear longer.  It will also, when used as boiler plating,  etc.,-not be so subject to bursting under pressure as is steel."  Mr. Grenier claims Jo have tempered  copper to such an extent -that he can  make it break like glass, which he says  has never been accomplished before by  any of those who have thought they  have discovered the secret of tempering  the metal.  "I made sufficient tests in my workshop in the Nicola Valley, to assure myself that I had made the discovery of  tempering, copper,"^said Mi .Grenier.  'VI' am now going -to proceed -with  further tests in Vancouver."  Mr. Grenier intends to take the matter up with the Canadian   Pacific  rail-  <way company.    He has  arranged   for  an   interview  with   Mr.   R.   Marpoie,  'general executive assistant.  BIG LAND DEAL  IN FIRE VALLEY  The largest deal in Kootenay fruit  lands concluded for many years, is an  nounced by E. B. McDermid, the Nelson broker, 6000 acres in the famous  Fire valley, on the Arrow lakes, being  transferred. The purchasers are Vancouver people, who were represented  in the deal by Mather & Noble,  Limited, financial agents. The vendors are a syndicate represented by  Mr. McDermid, most of its members  being Nelson people. The amount involved is $95,000 and $25,000 has  been paid over, the balance to be paid  in annual payments.  The purchasing company will subdivide the tract at once, and expect to  have it ready-for the market by September.  Newtaiatr Saaoa  Every line in a newspaper costs  something. If it is to benefit some individual, he may fairly expect to pay  something. You do not go into a  grocery and ask the proprietor to hand  you out ten pounds of sugar for nothing,  even though the grocer may be a personal friend and the gift might not be  a large one. If the beneficiary of advertising does not pay for it the pro  prietor has to settle. Nevertheless,  many people cannot seam to learn that  a newspaper pays its expenses by renting space, and that it is just as much  entitled to collect rent for every day  that space is occupied as you are for  the house you rent to a tenant.

Mr. Philip informed a Province  representative today that the bridge  plans were about ready for sending off,  and that the locations were secured.  Sir Wilfrid Laurier has been communicated with to ascertain if he would cut  the first sod during his western visit in  August, but no reply has as yet been  received.

NEW HOMESTEAD  REGULATIONS  Regulations for the admihstration  and disposal of Dominion lands in the  railway belt of British Columbia have  been passed by the Governor General-  in-Council, The railway belt is a strip  of land 40 miles in width following the  main line of the C.P.R. in British Columbia, being . twenty miles on each  side of the railway and controlled by  the government,  The regulations provide for the classification of the lands remaining undis  posed of, according to their character,  location and altitude. In the coast division', where the rainfall is heavy and  the timber growth large, a settler is entitled to enter for 40 acres of bench  land as a homestead and pre-emption.  If the settler is prepared to cultivate a  larger area and has acquired title in  connection with the legal sub-division  entered as a homestead, he is allowed'  to pre-empt the adjoining, 20 acres in  the same legal subdivision.  The same proportions will apply to  the bench lands in the lower Columbia  division. It is required in this case  that a settler should clear a total of ten  acres and cultivate a total of six acres  before a patent is issued, and double  that amount if a pre-emption is also  taken.  In the upper Columbia division, on  account of the very high altitude of the  lands and the character of the country,  the area of homestead is fixed at 40  acres, with a pre-emption privilege on  an adjoining 40 acres, and the area to  be cultivated is slightly more.  In the Kamloops division the area  of homesteads is fixed at 160 acres, or  a,quarter section. The smaller area is  applicable to lands suitable for fruit  growing, which are difficult to clear.  ey PHO-NH,  Bropcbial  Catarrh  ���Ui)le5$  Stopped  Often  Spreads  To  Tbe  Catfsii)4  Arrives  Phoealx Railway Tlactikte.  c.  p.

We help young  men and  OLD   MEN, TOO,  or that matter, to get ahead as fart, as good clothes will  take them. We make a suit or a coat so that it will fit  and look as if it belonged to the wearer. The material  will be right, the tailoring will be right, and the price  will be right. At least you will say so. In reality it  should be higher.
