PROMISING FUTURE PREDICTED FOR RED METAL  Daniel Guggenheim, the Smelting: Magnate, and President of the  American Smelting & Refining: Company Makes Startling  Prophecy Regarding Future Copper Price.  |     Local News  mmmSaWkWsaWmtsWmsWKsmWasWmsmWsWamWsWsM^^  The growth   of a more optimistic  ters,   but   beyond   this    and   being  feeling with respect  to the outlook   entertained by their charming hosts,  for the general   business and   finan-   nothing was accomplished.    No one  .rial situation continues to extend its  at all  conversant with  present con  influence of healf.hv ��������rii��nla*Jr����   ��-~   j������-.���-- ���������  Even as far south as Los Angeles  notice has been taken of mining  affairs in B.C. A recent writer in  the Mining review there states that  conditions in the silver-lead district  of Slocan have shown remarkable  improvement of late. The Standard  mine atSilverton is turning out to  be one of the really big mines of the  province.  A further  sign   of  the regard   in  \vhich   British   Columbia is  coming  to   be held, is   the   report   that  the  Guggenheims   will   have   a resident  agent in Vancouver, whose especial  duty it will be to keep in touch with  the    mining   situation,   and. secure  such properties   for development   as  are   submitted,   and   are    favorably  reported ..upon    by'  the,   ftrm'Js, engineers.  The extension of mining operations in Sheep creek still continues.  The latest to be taken in hand is the  Searchlight on the Sheep creek side  of Dominion mountain. At the present time two veins are known to  exist, and they are to be thoroughly  prospected this summer, under the  direction of W. / P. Poole, the  original promoter of the Nugget  company.  influence of healthy   stimulation   to jditions will  the copper market as well, with  the  result that the metal has been selling  around   the    12^-cent.     mark   for  electrolytic   to- the   accompaniment  of increasing sales.   Within the past  month    or   two   there   has   been   a  change   in    sentiment   towards   the  copper   market,    as   well    as     the  copper share market, which  is little  less than   remarkable,   and   experts  and   laymen,   big   men   and   small,  have been   rivalling ��ach   other   in  venturing    roseate     prophecies    of  coming  developments.     The   most  striking  of  these   rose tinted interviews      came   from    no    less      an  authority   than Daniel Guggenheim  ofthe   American "Smelting and Refining Company,, whose   dissatisfaction over the attitude   of the Washington authorities toward the Alaska  question is   seemingly- no less, keen  than ,his  belief  in   a much   higher  market'Tor the red   metal- at no far  distant   date.       Mr.   Guggenheim's  words are so   forceful, so   impelling  and   so   significant,   that   they   are  certainly   worthy   of being   quoted,  as there  have  John Love left on Friday for Hedley.  G. N. Elwin of Rossland is in charge  of the business during his absence.  The service at the Methodist church  tomorrow will beV-conducted by the  Rev. J. Calvert of Grand Forks. The  picnic in connection with the church is  to be held on Wednesday next.  Last Sunday the local lodge of the  Knights    of  Pythias     attended   the  Methodist Church in a body; the Rev.  venture   to   dispute the  G. H.   Hamilton preached the mem-  W. Y. Williams at Stewart  W. Y. Williams, consulting engineer for the Granby Consolidated  Mining, Smelting & Power Co., arrived in Stewart last Sunday for the  purpose of inspecting the principally  developed properties of the camp,  says the Portland Canal Miner.  On Tuesday in   company   with T.  J. Vaughan Rhys   he   went   up   the  valley, taking in the Portland Canal  mine and   mill, the   Ben   Bolt, Red  Cliff* and a number of other   properties.    It will be remembered that his  company acquired  a  controlling interest in the Hidden Creek of M. K.  Rogers at Goose   Bay, development  of which is   being   pushed   to place  the property in the shipping   stage.  While   on   the   coast  Mr. Williams  will examine a number   of  sites for  his  company   and   report  upon  the  most desirable for smelter purposes.  It is stated that the town of Stewart  will be considered, particularly with  a view to the remarkable mineralization at its back, as   within   a   brief  assertion that to keep up with the  greatly increased production, of the  past two or three years an enormous  consumption is needed, but fortunately for the welfare ofthe market,  and the peace of mind of investors  in copper shares, such a consumption is in sight. Wire requirements  must, of course, play a very important  part   in    the   market's   future  course,   and    the    outlook   in    this  direction is very encouraging to say  the  least.    President  Vail,   of the  American Telephone and Telegraph  company, presented   some   very interesting   figures   in  the report   for  the   last  fiscal   and   calendar  year,  figures   which   dovetail Very   nicely  with the   expectation   of a growing  demand from this   quarter  for wire  and other   manufactures  of copper.

The follow  ing   the   last   twelve   months   more  the total mileage now in use has required close to 1,000,000,000 pounds  of copper   to  meet   the   original requirements of such an extensive installation.  orial service, which was highly appreciated by all those present.  Morrin Thompson and Co. are building an addition to their already large  establishment. The addition is to have  a frontage of 25 feet, and a length of  52 feet. It is intended to be used exclusively for the hardware branch of the  business.  The wedding of Mrs. Alice Rabb and  Alex. McLeod took place at Deane's  Hotel-last week, ;the Rev. Petrie of  Greenwood officiated. An elaborate  supper was previously provided, and .  the happy couple fwere the recipients  o|gL number of handsome presents, the  guests and many .friends uniting and  presenting ��� them .with a beautiful silver tea set and a" case of knives and  forks; E. A. Black .also presented a  large cut glass purijph bowl. Mr. and  Mrs^^M.cLeodv.whD Jiave been long resi-  <ile^ts~--faefev;hav,e noS^*"1'^'^"^*4**"���  abode in Vancouver.  On Thursday evening, at the Pythian Hall, the installation of the  officers of Mountain Temple, Pythian  Sisters,  took place.    Mrs.  Effie Mar-  copper has   been   produced   than at  anytime   in   the history  of  copper  production, and with   all this, there  has been over  40,000 pounds  more  consumed   than   has  been produced  and   this   in   face   of  the fact   that  America has only  been   doing business   on the   basis, of 60 to 70 per  cent.     Furthermore,   the merchants  formerly carried an amount of stock  for use averaging from three to   six  weeks.     At   the   present   time they  are not carrying any stocks.      To a  very   great    extent   this   enormous  increase  in   copper   has  been taken  care of by Germany   and   England.  It is   a  fact   in   Germany, with   the  exception of   one   merchant, stocks  on hand are not carried beyond one  or two days' supply.      I repeat that  I do not fear a low price for copper,  but   rather   a   runaway   price,    and  nothing   can be   done   to prevent it  unless the   various   copper interests  get together, study  the   conditions,  discuss   their   affairs,   as   has   been  Boundary Ore Tonnages  Following are the returns of the  output of the mines and smelters of  the Boundary district for the week  ending July 22, and vear to date:  Granby 16,000    542,693  Mother Lode.    5,812    179,629  Jack Pot .'.      425       17,616  Rawhide 4,865     118,616  Athelstan       165        3,274  Lone Star  2,777  Napoleon       121 4,922  Insurgent  302  Others       353 905  Total 27,741    870,734  SMELTER TONNAGES  hig are the officers for the ensuing  term: P.O., Mary Bateman; M.E.C,,  Sarah Read; E.C., May Almstrom;  E.

There have been many townsites laid  out in B. C. during the past few years,  some of a ridiculously illusionary character, but the townsite of Coalmont  on the Tullameen river certainly has  something tangible to offer to justify  its being placed on the  market.    The  V. V. and E.   railroad  is  laid  to the  town, and the  track  is  to  be finished  within 60 days.    The  presence  in   its  immediate neighbourhood  of at least  six seams of coal varying from fonr to  sixty feet in thickness, and claimed to  be the  largest on   the American  continent, is in itself an  excellent recom-  period there   will   be   a number   of i done   by   the    United   States    Steel  properties   capable   of  producing a   "  large tonnage for a reduction works,  and   being   on   tidewater  the   town  offers   exceptional    advantages   for  works.

Hamilton was in  his usual fine form, and never  pitched'a better game, fanning his  opponents out in rapid succession.  He received the best of support, and  certainly made the most of it.  It is unfortunate that Phoenix cannot boast of a better ground, it being  little better than a side hill, place-  ing both opponents and the home  team in such a position that the  best ppints of true baseball cannot  be displayed.

At the same time they   will   supplement their orthodox professional reports   with   helpful   information   for  the records as to  temperature, rainfall, timber conditions,.soil character,  etc., all of which data will be of immense   benefit   to    the    prospective  pettier," to   whom   it   will   be  freely  .available at the nearest government  office, a<; well as at headquarters in  Victoria.  There'"are; also; in_���; preparation in  the   department   four   pre-emptors'  maps of sections contiguous  to   existent   .or; immediately   prospective  railway   facilities,   which   maps   are  ,bein<> rushed forward with   all   pos-  sible   celerity, and   will   be   quickly  followed   with   others   as    soon   as  Essential data is sufficient '.;��� for/ their  compilation.     The   policy   is   being  systematically; developed  of providing the fullest and   most   up-to-date  information   for   intending   settlers,  available where it .will be inost  convenient.  r/��� All .the; lands jio'w.-being surveyed  finder the direction of the  lands department   are   in   territory    on    the  lines of projected and   assured    railways, or   in   touch   with, navigable  arterial   waterways, which   will   assure their   expeditions   settling   up;  while surveys   are   to   be   hereafter  checked up systematically by an  independent and capable official  from  headquarters, W. S. Drewry having  recently    been   .appointed    in     this  capacity.     He is to leave almost at  once on his first inspection   tour,   in  the   course   of which he   will   check  and confirm various   recent   surveys  in the East Kootenay district, afterwards going into Cariboo from Ash-  croft northwards.  This will in all probability   be  the  last season which   government   surveys will be conducted in this prov- j  ince by assigned private members of  the profession, engaged by the Government, it    being   the   intention   to  inaugurate the   Bureau   of   Surveys  provided   for  in   legislation   of   last  session.      Up to date the department  has not found it necessary to o;o outside of the profession   in   this   province for men competent and ready to  direct its field enterprises, and   it  is  improbable that such   necessitv   will  arise   for   years   to   come, although  provision is made in   the   statute  bv  which such a condition may be   met  should   it    present    itself. ��� Vernon  News.
