The complete report of J. E.

During the year the open cut workings  ha.7e been extended in two directions,  and stoping in the underground workings has further increased the ore reserves beyond the estimates, this being  particularly the case on the 400-foot  level, where the largest amount of development work has been performed.  This property has furnished "the bulk  of the ore supply-and the workings, as  well as the surface plant, have been  maintained in excellent condition.  Additional receiver capacity has been  added for the purpose of equalizing the  pressure of the compressed air supply  with very satisfactory results.

The estimates for the: province of  British Columbia were presented in  the Legislature on Thursday of last  week. The estimated revenue for the  year ending March 31, 1911, is $7,-  000,000. Two and a quarter millions  of this will be derived from timber  licenses, leases and royalties and  another $1,650,000 from land sales  and revenue. Among the other items  of revenue are: Registry fees, $250,-  000; marriage licenses, $14,000; revenue tax, $225,000; reil property tax,  $300,000; personal property tax, $ 160,-  000; wild land, coal and timber tax,  $235,000; income tax, $150,000; mineral tax, $100,000; Chinese restriction  act, $200,000.  Approximately one million will be  spent for educational purposes and  four and a quarter millions for  public works, of which nearly three  million is for roads, bridges and  wharves.  MR. MILLER GETTING RESULTS  Ernest Miller, the member for Grand  Forks, has been working industriously  for his constituency since the opening  of the session and the estimates reflects that he is getting results. Mr.  Miller has" secured an appropriation of  $30,200 for improvement and extension of roads, as compared with  about $13,000 secured last year by the  previous member. He has 4lso: secured $20,000 as a starter for a new  courthouse at Grand Forks and $3,000  in the supplementaries for theconstitu-l  I three months of the signing of the  legal instruments, but not later in any  event than July 1 of this year. The  number of miles to be built each year  is specified. The whole is to be completed within four years of July r.  In order that the line may remain  under the exclusive jurisdiction of the  provincial government the Canadian  Northern Railway Co. agrees that its  lines in this province will be held by a  company incorporated here to be  known as the Canadian Northern Pa.  cine and that it will not have this company incorporated under a Dominion  charter as work for the general advantage of Canada.  The government is given control of  rates. The company agrees not to  appeal to the railway commission  But as a safeguard against the fixing of  destructive and confiscatory rates by  the government the company may appeal to a board of arbitrators, which  board is to be chosen solely by the  government from the supreme court of  British Columbia.  Should the earnings of the first  three years not be sufficient to pay  interest on tlie bonds the government  agrees to lend a sum sufficient to make  up the deficit, such sum to be repaid  within ten year's.. This is the same  as the clause in the Manitoba agreement of which the company made no  use. It is designed to guard against  the possibility of one or two years of  crop failure on the prairies.  Provision is made that future lines  which the company may construct in  this province will come under the  terms of this contract, if their bonds  are guaranteed by the province.  The line is to be up to the standard  of the present main line between Ed-  -monton and Winnipeg. The company  must enter Kamloops either with its  main line or a spur.  Asiatic labor is to be excluded in  the same' way as in the province's  agreement with the Grand Trunk  Pacific. I '  In the Kettle River Valley; railway!

The consideration is said to be about $125,000 and  the bond covers a period of two years,  the initial, payment to be made in  twelve months. Among those interested in the sale cf the claims are G.  W. Rumberger, Thomas Roderick,  John Mulligan and L. Y. Birnie of  Phoenix.  The properties have only been slightly developed but are believed to have  large bodies of lowgrade copper ore,  similar to that of the Granby mines.  The Granby company will spend a  large sum of money in prospecting the  newly acquired claims with the diamond drill. The contract for drilling  has been given to Boyles Bros, and  exploratory work will commence immediately on the Summit claim.

In all 2,532 feet of drifts,  tunnels and raises have been diiven  and a large tonnage of ore opened up,  the grade of which will be somewhat  better than the average of the other  properties, the values being chiefly  gold.  "Developments having justified completing the purchase, surface buildings  are in course of construction, and the  Canadian Pacific Railway is now building a line to the property which will  be completed early in March, 1910,  after which shipments will be regularly  maintained.

The regular meeting of the city  council was held Wednesday evening,  the mayor and all the aldermen being  present.  A communication was read from the  city solicitor in connection with the  proposed license against non-resident  real estate agents. The clerk was instructed to communicate with Greenwood and Cranbrook councils re their  license fee.  The clerk was instructed to write  the provincial secretary and enquire  why the Phoenix police and license  commissioners have not been appointed, and to point out that the  statutory meeting is close at hand, and  imperative business requires attention.  The city clerk was instiucted to  collect all dog taxes, and to notify nonresidents that all dogs running at large  without having paid license fee will be  impounded.  The police was instructed to inspect  street lights every night and report  any out of commission to the city clerk.  An account from John Love for $3  was ordered to be paid.  Phoenix Pioneer, Mr. Miller says :  "I am pleased to be able to report  that a substantial grant is provided for  assisting in the construction of the  new school in Phoenix. What this  amount will be I cannot say at present  but, in all probability it will be not  less than $6,000."  The government has also provided  for a grant of $250,000 towards the  construction of a bridge across the  Second Narrows at North Vancouver.  This will be of great interest to many  residents of Phoenix.

The  paid up capital  during  the past  40  years increased 359, per cent, and current loans 1,031, per cent.'; four  decades ago,Canadian banks loaned $'214  for every ;$ 100,of , their capital, , while  today they lend $777.    In   1889 Canada had 41 banks, this year it has'29.  Tbe average deposits per capita are  ' .While much, has been, written' regarding the excellence and suitability  of Canada's Bank Act Jittle has been  heard .of the actual development of  Canadian banking, more especially  from a, statistical viewpoint, says the  Times. Upon the stability of acoun-  try's banking system, its- adaptability  to changing conditions,, lttMnterdepen-  dence uponjthe commercial and monetary.��situation* without,, depends largely the-substantial character and jfKe  extent of national! development. This  is' more especially" the case' w'llh new  cdimVies.'such'as'Canada.'' The con  tinual inflow of capital makes doubly  important the strength of the domestic  banking position: It was recently  shown that- at least $450,000,000 of  United States capital have' been invested in industrial spheres' of the Dc��  niinioh. * Last year, Canadian public  flotations' brought to'this country more  than' $300,000,000. ��� George-Paish,  the English statisticiian, estimates that  during recent years one billion' dollars  of,English capital .have been'sent to  the 1. Dominion. During. the recent  twelve.months'.period, Canada claimed  a-large, share, of .British investments  abroad, two and ,a half millions ster'  ling in excess of that absorbed by the  Argentine Republic and twice as much  as,was obtained,by the United   States.  The ledge has been struck in the  Athabasca mine near Nelson.  A recent shipment ol ore from the  Ethel mine, Trout lake smelted $320  per ton.  An ore shoot from   12  to   15   feet  .wide has been, struck on the  Queen  mines at Salmo.    This is  considered  to be one of the richest strikes in the  history of the Queen.  The Rico property, owned by Joseph Casavallo, situated north of Moyie'  is a very promising gold property, upon  which 200 feet of drifting on the lead  gives showings which are very encouraging and which have yielded assays  of about $67 to the ton,  The output of coal at the mines of  the Crow's Nest Pass Coal company  for the month of January reached the  total of 95,000 tons. Of this total  52,000 was mined at Coal Creek and  43,000 at Michel. This is an averagc  ofover 4,100 tons daily, and is the  record for these mines.  The St. Eugene mine, owned by the  Consolidated Mining and Smelting  Co., is' employing about ?8o men  underground and with mill and surface hands, has a payroll of $40,000,  which is distributed to 350 men per  month. Last year the company took  out over 142,000 tons of ore, which,  when treated at the smelter and re  finery, situated at Trail, yielded $705,-  000.  The Sullivan group of five copper  claims on Moresby Island has been  sold, thiough O. Gerle, tb a Vancouver  syndicate, for $50,000, practically all  cash. Mr. Gerle states that the syndicate, headed by JP Pierport Morgan,  has recently bought the Sweede group  on Moresby Island. It is expected  that a smelter will be erected at the  Swede group within six months, capable of handling all the ore taken out  on the Queen Charlotte Islands.  The Aurora Mines and Milling com  pany have a fine property, located on  the west side of Lake Moyie, about  three-quarters of a mile from the St.  Eugene. In No. r level, there is about  500 feet of drifting with 100 of crosscuts, giving fine showing of high-grade  ore. On No. 2 level they have 350  feet of drifting with over 100 feet of  raising, in which about 35,000 tons of  oie is already blocked out. Raising  is started- on No. 1 level and in the  course of a few days they hope to be in  contact,with the main'ore body. They  have started sinking a winze from  2-08  Cure that CongI*  Prevent Another  There is a double benefit iu using  Mathieu's Syrup of Tar and Cod  Liver Oil.

Prices are>rising with amazing rapidity,  and the chief cause is the increase in  gold, production. We had a small  panic in 1907, and there was a timely  recovery because of the influx of still  more gold. Present conditions indicate that another crisis is due before  long." There is no doubt that the  present condition as regards prices is  decidedly abnormal, and it needs but  little economic wisdom to see the advisability of being prepared for any  -'sudden change such as appears in the  very nature of the case only too likely  at no very distant date.  ^Asaya-Neuroll"*'1'  THE    NEW    REMEDY   FOR  Nervous Exhaustion  Grief and worry drain the nervous system with disheartening  rapidity.

JOHN I<OVE.  a��t  Scotch Philosophy  - A man's life is full -of crosses and  disappointment. He comes into the  world without his consent and goes  out against his will, and the trip between" is a hard one. When he is  little the big girls' kiss him. When he  big the little girls kiss him. If he is  poor, he is a bad manager, if he is rich,  he is dishonest. If he wants credit he  can't'get it, if he is prosperous, every  body wants to do him a favor. If he  lis in politics, he is a grafter, if he keeps  out of politics, he is no good to his  country. If he does not give to charity,'  he is a stingy cuss, if he does, it is for  show, .if he is actively religious, he is a  hypocrite, not interested in religion he  is a hardened sinner. Cares for people,  soft disposition, cares for no one, hard'  hearted. Dies young, great loss, lives  to old age, outlived hit calling. . If he  saves money, he's a grouch, if he  spends, he's a loafer, if you get it,  you're a grafter, if you don't get it,  you're a bum.    So what's the use ? "  A SELF-CONFESSED,  "HAM" OPERATOR  . Henry V.  Mudge was  recently appointed president of the   Rock   Island  railway.    Asked how he had won his  way   from track laborer  to  president,  he said he could point to no one factor.  His   conclusions   were   expressed  in  these aphorisms:   "It is the work a man  leaves undone and .worries over that  kills.    Opportunity may knock several  times, but it is the man who recognizes  his opportunity the first   time   it   presents itself, and is readv for an emergency who   wins.    The   man  who  is  taking proper interest in his work is so  busy that  quitting-time  conies before  he wants it to.    I used to be a "ham"  telegraph operator out in   Kansas myself, and I believe it  is   a  good thing  for a man  to  remember  his own   experience when dealing with shortcomings of others."  15-OENT COPPER  PREDICTED MAY 1  Although the recently published  statement of the Copper Producers'  Association showed a'heavy decrease  in the stocks of copper'in the United  States, it has as yet had no marked  effect on the general trade, but pro  ducers have been greatly encouraged,  and ihere is" no disposition to piess the  metal for sale. If fact, many expert  ODservers are confident that the price  is gradually hardening, and certain  producers predict that a t quotation cif  15 cents a pound will be established  by May ist.���N.Y.

Webster, of Seymour St.,  Montreal, and the mother adds  weight to their appeal. She says:  " My little girl contracted scalp  disease at school. Bad gatherings  formed all over her head, and not  only caused the child acute pain  but made her very ill. The sores  discharged, and occurring on tlie  scalp we feared she would lose  all her hair.

The Stewart I^and company, located  at Stewart, the principal mining camp  in the Portland Canal district, has  within the past few months paid no  per cent, in dividends, amounting to  about $20,000.  J. W. U'ilks has resigned the secre-  tary-ireasureship of the O-iOyoos Farmers' institute on account of his ap.  proaching departure for the Old Coun  try. V. 1). Wade has been selected  his successor.  The budget speech was delivered in  the legislature at Victoria on Friday of  last  week   by  Hon.   VV.   J.    Bowser.  The speech occupied two hours in delivery.     Unusual credit  was taken by  Mr. Bowser for   the   prosperity in  the  province as due  to  the  Conservative  government.     Outside  of  this,   however,   he  dealt   exhaustively wilh the  various industries of the province, the  figures given showing the   remarkable  development that is taking place in this  province at the present time.    As an  instance of it an estimate made by the  minister as to  production  during the  past year showed that for every unit of  population $315   was , produced, or a  total for the province of $82,500/000  under the heads of manufacture, mining, agriculture,  fishing  and   lumber.  The record for. the  year  showed that  the surplus was over $900,000 for nine  months, which   would  be $1,100,000  for the year.  The debt of the  province has   been  reduced by over $932,000.    'I'he government has on hand in the bank over  $6,000,000.   In spite of this, however,  the   minister   warned  the  legislature  against injudicious expenditure.    This  represented the  proceeds, he  said, of  the sale of the natural resources of the  province, and there was danger  that'  the times would not always be as prosperous as they are now.    This .surplus  was   being  used  to  redeem the outstanding   bonds   of the  province,  as  these were offered at favorable prices.  Mr. Bowser pointed out  that  while  before the reserve put on by the gov  ernment vast amounts of timber lands  taken up far in advance of immediate  likelihood  of  being  utilized, yet   the  province derived benefits as the holders  had to pay licenses each year and were  ready to co-operate  if necessary with  the government in protecting from fire  and for reforstation.    The minister announced that the new move is to be  taken this year in starting experimental  orchards in various parts of the province.    A grant  of $10,000 was proposed for this, which would allow of 15  orchards in different  parts  being laid  out by  private  enterprize  assisted by  the government.    He announced that  $20,000 is to be spent in  connection  with Salvation   Army  in  an effort: to  solve the domestic help problem in the  province.    In connection with'ftixatibn  on lands held by  railways in the province Mr. Bowser said officials were at  present assessing railway lands'.'  For six years and nine months the  surpluses piled up by the McBride  government have been $4,600,000.  On March 3r, 1909, the liabilities of  British Columbia over the assets were  over 3,294,577 as compared with $8,-  764,442 in 1904.

Th�� Pioneer for Fih�� Commercial Printing  -THE-  ONLY  =WAY=  Mining Men Meet  at Vancouver  To Mint Our Own Gold  As a result of representations to the  Dominion government by gold producers of the Yukon and the department of mines it is almost certain that  certain changes in the regulations governing tbe transference of gold in Canada will be made, which will revert to  the royal mint in Ottawa, the gold of  the Yukon and British Columbia which  is now sent to the United States mint  in San Francisco or to Seattle by the  Dominion assay office.  The first session of the western  branch of the Canadian Mining Institute was held in Vancouver Saturday,  when about 40 visitors were present.  Ewing Buchan filled the chair. Thomas  Kiddie gave an address on the progress which the industry has made in  British Columbia of late. Campbell  Sweeny, of the Bank of Montreal,  also spoke.  \V Fleet Robertson, provincial mineralogist, was elected chairman of the  western section.  The government will be petitioned  for telegraphic communication with  Stewart, on the Portland canal, by the  institute.  The institute adjourned, to meet in  Grand   Forks   for   its   next    meeting.  The session passed a resolution  asking the Dominion government to  remit the duty on life-saving apparatus  used in mines. Such equipment is  said to be manufactured only in Europe,  and it is thought that the heavy duty  now prevailing has handicapped efforts  to have mines provided with it. In  the States there is no duty on such  apparatus. Representatives of the  Vancouver and Victoria boards cf  trade piomised endorsement of ,that  proposal.  Andrew Moyes has been appointed  deputy mining recorder for the Osoy  00s division, with  an office   at   Olalla.
