This  work comprises drifting and cross-  cutting in tunnels, as well as diamond tdrill work.  On the visit' to the property, the  officials were accompanied by an  eminent New York expert, and his  assistant, Mr. Julihn, a well-known  mining engineer.  During the visit to Prince Rupert  members of the board of trade took  occasion to urge upon them the advantage of locating the smelter,  which will follow the purchase, in  Prince Rupert. The advantages  were set forth and the members of  ���|he board of trade yet hope that the  Granby company  niay see  its   way  clear to locate ;;!tliigr^i'-:o;;-'.-*'-  Mr- Sylvester, ^heh interviewed  on the subject, said that in the event  of th^ mines-being taken over there  would likely follow in less than a  year's time the erection of a smelter.  With respect to the location of it  the natural place would be in close  proximity to the mines. A conversation with  him  revealed   the fact  next Monday," said Frank M. Sylvester, assistant general manager of  the Granby Consolidated fining,  Smelting and Power, company, at  his office in vthe Terminal, building  Tuesday.

'  Thisl question   has  been agitating the minds of'tfte producers   and    investors   in     copper  shares ever since the over-estimated  boom  in   metal  values reached  its  climax  in 1907   with, prices  quoted  above the 26-cent  mark and the reactionary movement'began, a moves  ment which has continued with dis-  quieting.regularity up to the present  time, interrupted only by occasional  flashes of strength.    The  query is'  more  pertinent  today than  it  has  been  at   any time   within   the   last  three years,   and   while  many observers are confident that relief is in  sight and that the   worst has   been  encountered, others fail to give evidence of a  like optimism and have  no good word to say for  the  prospects of the metal  situation or  for  the  outlook for the  shares of the  various producing companies.

(Continued from Page 1)  duction works as close  as possible  to the point of production.       r  In locating in Prince Rupert there  was a disadvantage that at present  neither ore in quantity nor fuel were  in close proximity.    Both , essential  supplies would have  to  be. carried  to the works.    At Goose Bay there  was a good harbor and the ore was  there in large quantities.    The  fuel  represented about one-tenth the tonnage that, the  ore did so that it was  cheaper to carry the coke to the, ore  than the ore to the'coke.  The    company    would   probably  carry out experiments with Vancouver Island slack coal, looking to the  production of coke and see if a supply   could   not   be   obtained   there.  That would be the natural source of  supply unless the Queen   Charlotte  Island coal fields become producers.  By locating   at  Goose, Bay,   the  smelter  would  be in  a  position   to  handle ore not only from the Hidden  Creek and other mines in close proximity but would also be able to take  care   of   shipments  from   Stewart,  Alice Arm   and   all   mining  centres  anywhere on the Portland Canal and  in the north.

Special  preparations are being made by the  various committees  in   charge  for  refreshments on account of the large  crowd that   usually attends a Pyth-  ian picnic, so   that the wants of all  will be  attended to.    The   Pythian  Sisters will   have charge o�� the refreshments.

Mr. Miller stated that he had com-  municated with.the attorney general's department in reference to the  salary ,disput and ���would inform the  council the disposition of the matter upon receipt of word from VicT  toria. ,,  The finance committee passed a  number of accounts and recommended the payment of same.  The   council   was   instructed   to  write Mr.  Miller  thanking   him for  the  interest he  had  taken   in   the  .salary  question, \and, also the   assistance he had given   towards bet^  ter roads leading out of Phoenix.

It is believed  that   Martin Lund-1  quist   of  Marcus,   foreman   of the!  Napolean  mine, has   met   his death  in the waters of the Columbia river.  On Friday evening he left Marcus  for his home,   leaving his   horse on1  the other side of the river, and it is  the supposition that   while crossing  the railroad   bridge he  fell into the  river or  met  foul play.    The   next  day his hat.was   found on the  river  bank   below   the   bridge   and   the  horse was. still tied   to a tree.     It is  said that   Mr.   Lundquist   had quite  a sum of money on his person when  he left Marcus.   He was well known  in and around Phoenix.

Would-be aviators are attracted  by the large fees received for flying.  Aviator Janus of Washington receives one dollar for every minute  he remains in the air. If some  people were paid at this rate for  every minute they were "up in the  air" they would be able to retire  early in life.

Props., Sherbrooke.  A Tribute to the Prospector.  The prospector is  commonly pictured as  a  lowly person, but he  is  also proclaimed as a  hero, like all  other explorers..   When he is missed he is  most appreciated, for it is  a well  acknowledged fact that the  civilization of the mineral  regions  owes its  rise  to his hardy efforts.  The work which the prospector does  is hot a work in  which capitalists  directly   participate   or often indirectly   support.    Grub   stakes   are  usually provided by men of moderate incomes and  more or less intimate association with mining enterprises..   Mines must be  raised up  to  the point   where   large  capital  takes   hold   of  them.      The very  foundation of the mineral industry  is cut away when  the prospector,  disappears.  A  somewhat  unusual  tribute  is  paid to the prospector by a movement in Denver to establish a pub-  lie grub stake fund, to be raised in  recognition of the need of more of  this class of work in Colorado.    In  recent years   many of the old  time,  prospectors who have traversed the  hills of Colorado have gone to Nevada,    Idaho   and    other   western  states, and we hear of them following the lure of gold in the new fields  of   northean   Ontario.    The  hardy  gold hunter may take some pride in  the circumstance' that  the business  men  of  a state   give evidence of  wanting to keep him at home.    In  behalf of Colorado, which  for some  time has  been hoping for  the discovery of a new district in the class  with   Leadville,  (Cripple  Creek and  Aspen, the Denver  Republican has  started a   subscription list to  equip  a  number of experienced  prospectors- during   the   present    season.  Under the plan proposed a score or  more of individuals may be put into  the field  for the  next  few months.  The  experiment seems  well worth  trying.   .*>   Canadian Northern Railway  Grading on the line of the Canadian Northern from Port Mann to  Sturgis Landing, opposite Mission,  is practically completed, and all that  remains to be done in that work  now is to repair a few washouts  caused in some of the cuts by the  heavy rains.  With the exception of a few  bridges, two of which are near  Chilliwack, the road is practically  finished from here to Hope. All the  bridges will probably be built within a month, and in six weeks at the  outside, the road will be ready for  the laying of steel.  The Northern Construction company has a large force of men at  work laying out the terminal yards,  and from the way work is being  rushed it is likely that steel will be  laid to Port Mann as soon as the  main line to Hope is  ready  for the  rails.   .������.��� ^> ���  Out of every $100 of wealth  created by builders and other producers, $8 worth goes up in smoke. flllii'MM  |Jfe&;'i;giV^ '..
