Tells  Something of the  Big  Similkameen Property.  Boundary  Notes  Frank A. Ross, general manager of  the Daly Reduction Co., I td., owners  of the Nickel Plate, the most prominent  mine in the Similkameen district, at  Medley, was a visitor in Phoenix last  Monday and Tuesday, accompanied by  G. P. Jones, the company's superintendent. They were on a little trip to  some of the other mining properties in  Southeastern British Columbia, inspecting the systems of mining in vogue in  other camps, having arrived here from  Rossland.  Through the courtesy of O. B. Smith,  Jr., Mr. Ross and Mr. Jones were  shown through the Granhy mines,  which both had heard much of but  which neither had previously visited.  Mr. Ross afterwards stated that the  system employed at the Niclcel Plate  mine was much the same as that in use  at the Granby mines���only at the  Cranby the plans were on about 30  times as great a scale as at the Nickel  Plate.  Mr. JRoss has been manager at the  Nickel Plate mine and mill for about a  year and J a half, and has hardly been  away from there in that time. He says  that things are moving along smoothly  there, but the Nickel plate is the  only shipping mine in that district, and  is; as well, about the only one at  present in operation in the Similkameen. The mine is about two miles  from the mill, the latter being located  at the town of Hedley, at the mouth  of Twenty Mile creek. The neatly 100  men employed live mostly at the mine,  up the steep mountain side, and the  millmen live in Hedley.  The concentrates from the 40 stamp  mill are hauled by teams to Keremeos,  some 25 miles distant, whence they are  shipped by rail to the smelter at the  coast. As ihe Great Northern now has  construction gangs stretched all ...the  ..���r-/.v��tii- KeremeO's'~t'd"Hedley, it is  but a matter of a few months till all  wagon hauling is done away with for  Hedley.  One thing occasions delay in operations at the Hedley mill sometimes,  and that is lack of power, which is  generated by water. In dry times  there is no option but to cease work  entirely. Mr. Ross was a little afraid  that he might have to close down any  time now on this account till the spring  thaw sets in, but hoped it would not  be necessary.  Mr. Ross is a mining engineer of  many years' experience, extending from  .���Maska to Mexico, and made the interesting statement that the Nickel Plate  has the only gold stamp mill of importance now in operation for 1,500  miles in every direction���Homestake  in the east, Utah, Colorado and California on the south, and Treadwell on  the north. There are scores of idle  ���mills nearer than the places mentioned,  but difficulty of recovery and increasing cost of operation had closed them  all in the last few years, some of them  being magnificently equipped, too.  Speaking of the Nickel Plate, Mr.  Ross greatly deprecated the exaggerated stories recently sent out broadcast  from Grand Forks, in which, among  other things, the ore was given a value  of $80 per ton. Such was not the  case, nor anything like it. While he  did not care to state the values, he said  it kept him busy, with his excellent  mine and mill equipment, to make the  balance show on the right side of the  ledge.  At the Granby mines the full force  is being worked, being a little over 500  men. The monthly payday will be  next Tuesday.  A petition  has   been  circulated in  Greenwood asking the city  council to  bonus the long tunnel project.    Nearly  every one approached signed the docu  ments.  A week ago! $5000 Dominion Copper Co. 6% bonds sold in New York at  45, at which price the; return is 13%.  The company has several hundred  thousand dollars cash in its treasury.  By the latter part of this month it is  expected that something more definite  will be known from the east regarding  the Greenwood long tunnel project. It  now appears as if the project would be  successfully launched.'  Frederic Keffer, engineer for the B.  C. Copper Co. nnd president of the  Canadian Mining. Institute, left last  week for Ottawa, to attend the annual  meeting of the institute, which is being  held in the capital city this week.  At the monthly meeting of the  Granby Co. directors held last Tuesday at the company's New York office,  it was decided to pass the usual  quarterly dividend. This action, or  lack of it, was not unexpected, and is  due to the low price of copper.  The few heads of departments who  were kept on for several months at the  Snowshoe mine after the close-down,  were let out last Saturday, and now  Supt. Biesel is monarch of all he surveys around the Snowshoe. Foreman  Fraser and Accountant Fox are still  living at the mine.  One or two cars of; machinery, for  the new air compressor for the B. C.  Copper Co.!s Mother Lode mine, have  arrived at Greenwood. Jit is a Rand  duplex machine, smaller than that installed in Phoenix for the Granby Co.  and larger than that put in by the Dominion Copper Co. It has a capacity  of some 3,400 cubic feet of free air per  minute, .. with the latest inventions  common to compressors of the newest  type.  , The announcement, in the press  early this week that th* great Amalgamated copper mines in Montana would  at once reopen with a full force of men,  which employ around 20,000 at mines  .4����ft��2 *4.-4vii\4to,' iicwj-<i,o.-o/jTo4?t .of attracting quite a number of men from the  Boundary, for whom there was not  room at the Granby mines or other  smaller properties now working. Nearly  every day this week tickets have been  bought for Butte, and some old Butte  miners have left for their old working  places.  FRACTURING  RECORDS AGAIN  Granby Ships 23,663  Tons, 7 Days,  CONING AND GOING  In February Sent Out 80, J 55  Tons Ore.  Everything seems to be propitious  nowadays for the Granby Consolidated  to smash a record or two, and once or  twice a month this is done. Willi  plenty of coke, ore dumps, power, ore  and with two railways ready and  anxious with all kinds of rolling stock-  on hand, the fracturing process, as far  as records go, moves merrily along.  4, This week no less than 23,663 tons  of ore were shipped from the Granby  mines to the Granby smelter, being the  largest tonnage ever sent out in seven  days from Phoenix or any other camp  in British Columbia by this or any  other company. It should be remembered, too, that these figures are in dry  tons that is, when the moisture has  been extracted. ,  While January was a pretty good  month for shipments from the Granby  mines, running in excess of 74,000 tons  of ore, February, although two days  shorter, shows up with about 6,000  tons more of ore shipped than for Jan  uary. The tonnage sent out during  the 29 days in February amounted to  80,155 tons. The smelter treatment  for JFebruary was about 2,000 tons  more than this. If it continues to increase at this rate every month, it will  soon be above a rate of 100,000 tons  per month.  ORDERED CITY ASSESSMENT MADE.  Rolls lo Be Completed for Council by May 13th.  ���Accounts Ordered Paid.  Mayor Matheson and Aldermen  Biner, Knott, McKenzie and Carson  were present at Wednesday's meeting  of the city council, the following accounts being favorably reported on and  ordered paid:  F. M.

Jones, of the  Daly Reduction Co., at Hedley, after  inspecting the Granby mines, went to  Grand Forks Tuesday to visit the  Granby smelter, before returning to  Hedley.  Miss Kate McKenzie went to Pater-  son on Sunday's train, to take up the  work of her sister in the school there,  Miss McKenzie having accepted a position with the public school in Greenwood, after spending Sunday with her  parents here,  Alex D. Strutzel, of the local staff of  the Eastern Townships Bank, returned  early this week Irom a short vacation,  spent in and around Spokane. Stanley  Fairweather, of the bank,,left Thursday on a visit to his parents, who' live  at Republic.        "  R.

Mike Moylah met a terrible death  at the Granby smelter last Monday  night, by falling in front of one of the  dinkey slag engines and having his  head cut off, the upper part of his body  being also badly crushed.  The accident was not witnessed, but  from evidence that came out of the  coroner's inquest, it appears that Moy-  lan who was a switchman on the sl.ig  train, attempted to step on the platform on the front of the small engine,  missed his footing and fell across the  rails, death resulting almost instantly  The coroner's jury returned a verdict  of accidental death, and a recommendation that sufficient men be kept employed to keep the yards free of refuse  material.  Moylan, who was a brother-in law of  Miles Barrett, the smelter foreman,  was a married man with two children.  This is the Inst serious accident occur-  ing at the smelter since the big works  resumed operations over two months  ago.  Total    $206 55  Communications were read from  Dr. C. J. Fagan, asking the city for a  grant for the anti-tubercolosis fund,  and from Provincial Secretary Young,  notifying the council of the appointment of Alderman Porter and Chas. D.  Hunter as police and licensing commissioners.  The city assessor was directed to  make up the city and school district  assessment roll for 190S, to begin on  March 8th, and have same completed  by May  13th.  A motion was passed directing the  city clerk to write the Granby Co. to  the effect that the drainage from the  Granby hotel was running into Twin  creek, causing a stench and endangering public health, and asking for an  abatement.  Moving Pictures At Opera. Honse.  Last Tuesday the first moving picture entertainment given by the opera  house management, took place to a  fair audience. Petcy Pinker handled  the machine. Wednesday a new machine arrived from Winnipeg,and is said  to be right up to date and the best of  its kind, a second entertainment being  given last night as the Pioneer went to  press. Between 6,000 and 8,000 feet  of films have been secured, covering  all the latust subjects that have become  so popular in the east and west, with a  change every week. It is the intention  to give shows every Tuesday and Friday here, and possibly in Grand Forks  and Greenwood on the other nights in  the week. Mrs. Mtinay, of Greenwood, does the solo work here in connection with the illustrated songs.  Popular prices will prevail.  The small sum of two bits (25c) per  month takes the Phoenix Pioneer to  any postoffice on i-.ir?h,  Martin Burrell, of Grand Forks, is  concluding his lectures in England upon fruit growing in British Columbia.  W. A. Corbett, well known as one  of the old time claim owners in Summit camp years ago, died recently at  Dear Park, Wash., near Spokane.  The Greenwood Ledge thinks that  the big tunnel will make Greenwood  one ofthe greatest mining camps in  west. Here's hoping that it will do  that and then some.  Miss Flora Kennedy and Ralph A.  Hilton were recently married at New  Denver, and are residing at Molson,  Wash. Mr. Hilton was in charge of  the mill at the Cariboo-McKinney  mine last summer.  Larry Doolan, formerly living at  Eholt and employed by the C. P. R.,  at one time chief of police at Sandon,  and latterly a contractor on the C.P.R,  dropped dead in the Commercial hotel,  Winnipeg, Tuesday.  Court Kettle River, No. 3575,  I.O.F., of Grand Forks, has installed  the following officers: C. R., I. A.  Dinsmore; V.C.R., L. J. Higgins; F S.,  W. H. M. May; treasurer, W. K. C.  Manly; O.R, C. Brewster; VV., Ed.  Ruckle; S.B., F. S. Newbauer; J. B.,  Frank Ruckle; court deputy, E. Sprag-  gett; court physician, Wm. Truax, M.D.  George R. Naden, M. L. A��� of  Greenwood, during the debate on the  estimates at Victoria, enlivened proceedings by going over the everlasting  Rock Creek bridge matter, about which  so much has already been printed.  He did not say anything, however, according to reports, about the removal  of the postoffice at Rock Creek, by request of Duncan Ross at Ottawa, nor  regarding the influx of Molson bank  bills west of Greenwood during the  last Dominion campaign.  J. A. Macdonell (Big Jim) and C.  S. Czowski were in Greenwood last  week with C. S. Moss, tesident engineer for the C. P. R. from Nelson,  and looked over the Mother Lode  spur. In a week or two they will start  work on improving the grade and cur  vature of the spur with some 40 men,"  the cost being about $25,000, and the  time required two or three months,  l'he firm is doing much work for the  C. P. R. now, including the cutting  down of what is known as the big hill  at Field, by making two long tunnels,  and also in filling the trestles on the  Boundary line.  First   Dominion  Nominee.  The Socialists are the first in the field  in the interior, for the approaching Dominion elections, with a candidate.  Wilh'am Davidson, of Sandon, formerly  a member of the legislative assembly,  having been elected on the independent labor ticket, but who has since  become an out and out Socialist, was  nominated last Tuesday at a convention held at Nelson. Mr. Davidson,  who has been in the Boundary several  times, and who is well known here,  has the advantage of being the first in  the field, .if there is any advantage  therein. He was nominated for the  riding of Kootenay. ..-  i _____________________  > Prince Rupert Will   Boom.  Announcement is made at last that  the provincial government and officers  uf   tho   Grand -Trunk    Pacific railway  have reached an agreement regarding  Prince Rupert, the long announced  Pacific coast terminus of that railway.  The company wished to control the  liquor traffic in that new city, but the  province would not agree'to that. The  railway wished also to administer the  province's quarter interest in the town-  site of Prince Rupert, and here again  the province would not give way���  which is also a good thing.  The province will sell its reversionary right in the Indian lands at Prince  Rupert, to the railway, the Indians having already been treated with by the railway officers. The province also agrees  that the railway shall be free from  taxes for a period of ten years, the  same as any new railway in the province. But the province insists that  there shall be no change in the terminus of the line from Prince Rupert,  thus protecting bona fide investors.  In short, the railway, which secured  about all that it asked from the Liberal  government at Ottawa, and then some,  has been unable to pull wool over the  eyes of the government of British Columbia.  A few days ago announcement was  made from New York that a change  had boen made in the presidency of  the Dominion CopperCo. By a coincidence, the president of the British  Columbia Copper Co. also retired,  this; being also on account of poor -  health.  Senator Warner Miller, who has  been president of the Dominion Copper Co. for three years, has been exceedingly ill for some time past, at his  home at Herkimer, N. Y., and he has  resigned. C.J. Cull, of New York, who  was elected to the directorate at the  company's annual meeting,' held in  Phoenix last month, has been chosen -  vice-president, and will assume the  duties of president till a .successor to  Mr. Miller is elected. Mr. Miller also resigned from the board of directors ofthe company.  H. H. Melville, of Boston,  one of ':  the vice-presidents of the. Dominion;  Copper Co., is expected to return from  a trip to Europe shortly,  where a considerable  interest in the  company is  now held.    It is expected that,  when.  Mr. Melville arrives,   he  will present:  for election to   the  directorate* of the  company  the name of a resident in  Great Britain,   to  represent   the large*  English holdings of the company.  Colgate Hoyt, president of the Bri-f  tish Columbia Copper Co. for the last\  year, has resigned because of ill health,;  and has been  succeeded as president I  by Newman   Erb,   who  is  also chairman of the board  of directors of the  company.    The full  list of officers is  now as follows:  Presidentand chairman of board,  Newman Erb; vice-presidents. B. B. '  JLawrence an4 F. L. Summer; secretary-  treasurer, R. -H. Eggleston; directors,  Copley Amory, A. N. Brady, C. H.  Burke, Newman Erb, Colgate Hoyt,  Edwin Hawley, B. B. Lawrence, J. C.  Ueiff, F. L. Somroer, C. A. Starbuck,  and F. L. Underwood.  Died From Childbirth.  Mrs. John L. Dunlop died at the  family residence on Thursday afternoon from heart failure, brought on by  childbirth, which occured last Sunday.  The child is doing well. Deceased  was 24 years of age, having been married about 18 months, and coming  from Shawville, Quebec, Mr. Dunlop's  two sisters, Mrs. H. A. Munro and  Mrs. W. J. Prendergast, also residing  here. Funeral services were held at  the home yesterday and Mr. Dunlop  started on the long journey with his  wife's remains to Arnprior, Ont., near  where the burial will take place. He  will arrive there on the 12th inst., it  being exactly a year to a day since  they left the east to come to Phoenix.  The case is a peculiarly sad one,  and the bereaved husband has the  sympathy of the community. Mrs.  Dunlop's mother died under similar  circumstances, and Mrs. Dunlop unfortunately had a presentiment that  she would go the same way.

With a little better price for  cojJ-per, it is' a foregone conclusion that  thd B. C.

Then times will  improve in the Boundary, and our  fourteen copper blast furnaces will be  turning out the red metal at a greater  rate than ever. Better times are certainly in store, and there is every justification for feeling that the beginning  of them is not far off, either.  Policy  of  Wobbling.  Undoubtedly the postmaster-general  of Canada was actuated by commend  able motives when, on May 8, 1907,  the second-class postage rates with the  United States were abrogated, and the  almost prohibitive rate of 4 cents per  pound, from either country to the  other, prepaid by stamps attached, was  inaugurated. Mr. Lemieux wished to  cut what he terms the "nasty" weeklies  and monthlies - coming from United  States publishers, thus relieving the  Canadian mails from that great burden.  In doing this, however, he also cut out  dozens and hundreds of pu blications  that were and are of merit, for the new  rate was practically prohibitive.  One Montreal daily had 26,000  American subscribers, and it and other  publications were hit hard by the new  rate. A newspaper objection went  up all over the Dominion, objecting to  the new rate, and our p.m.g. had another think coming. A month or two  ago, by consent of Washington authorities, Mr. Lemieux admitted the dailies  to the one cent a pound rate again,  and now he is considering the weeklies.  But, he does not propose to let in all  the riff-raff of the States under any consideration, without paying the high  rate.  As a matter of fact, Mr. Lemieux  has made lots of trouble for publishers,  not to say expense, by his wobbling  policy, and he is trying to rectifiy it,  for which he should have credit. But  a business man wonders ' why he did  not give the matter thorough consideration in the first place, and, if so  minded, bar the objectional publications.  \ OUR COPPER CORNER  Or*.*<c��f>��'r��tr>�� <anr^<%ar>-a<%4r>-a<% oooOO'OO eT>iQ<%4T>Q<%*>  Real Trouble With Copper. '  Tne outlook for copper is  thus described by a contributor to the London  MATTERS  OF   tNTKRKST   TO   THOSE   INTERESTED    IN    THE  COPPER   MINING   INDUSTRY  Financier  Nothing- is more likely than that  copper will go lower, but it is improbable the price will descend to any  material extent. There are a few small  bull accounts open, but the whole  amount does not come to very much.  On the other hand, purchasers for con  sumption will not buy at any price.  One reason for this is that throughout  Europe, including the British Isles,  new orders for electrical or other engineering work are conspicuously absent,  and likely to be for some little time.  The old orders have been completed,  or are approaching completion, and  the consumption of copper is insignificant. This is the real trouble, and although, with a sensitive market, fluctuations may occur as speculative operations mature, no sound improvement  can take place until the economic  position is altogether better. In  Europe there is nothing that points to  such a recovery at the moment, and  when it takes place it will be slow and  gradual.  In the United States it is far more  difficult to arrive at a conclusion as to  the course of the copper market, for  the reasons that the financial and commercial affairs are only now slowly attaining a condition in which the real  inwardness of the late crisis can be  brought under examination.   And even  now the true outlook is, above everything, likely to evolve the unexpected.  Perhaps the most supreme unlikely,  not to say impossible, event is a quick  recovery. But there may be considerable change for the better-as the  summer comes on, and the farmers get  busy, particularly if the agricultural outlook proves fa.vorable.  This will, if nothing disastrous again  happens to spoil the prospect, have its  effect upon industry and business gen  erally, and by midsummer it is reason,  able to expect that matters will get into  better shape with a return of confidence. Premonitory symptoms of a  better feeling will be certain to show  themselves before anything substantial  happens, so that perhaps some time in  May, possibly earlier, a better and  mote cheerful outlook should be seen.  Already, by the way, there is a glimmer  of some improvement in the demand  in the United States for, steel. This  may prove one of the straws .showing  which way a zeyphr may be expected,  if not a full-blown wind.  Deepest Mlue Shaft..  The four deepest shafts in the.world  are in the Lake Superior copper region  within a mile of each other, says Min  ing Reporter.: These are the Red  Jacket shaft of the Calumet & Hecla  Co. and shafts Nos. 3, 4 and 5 of'the  Tamarack Co. The fiist is vertically  4,920 feet and the Tamarack No. 5 is  a vertical shaft 5,130 feet deep.  of imitations and xubstiitttct.'  f��B YOUB  Sfomaelis  Stop That .Knocking.

The man who cannot carry into his  place of business some element of hopefulness had better take a day's vacation  by-visiting some unfortunates worse off  than himself, and then go back to his  work feeling that he has a reason to be  ashamed of himself,- says the Wall  Street Journal. Do not be a sinker,  but help to keep things afloat. Be a  corker.  In nine cases out of ten, when "the  times are out of joint," it's you, mainly,  that is "out of joint." You need a  straight out talking to, by somebody  who is large-hearted enough to love  you with all your faults, and courageous enough to fire the truth at you.  It takes a soldier to stand up and face;  firing like that, but it's worth the powder if only you can find someone cap-,  able of doing the shooting. Every  man's mental machinery needs dusting out semi-occasionlly.  Trail smelter is just blowing in its  fourth copper furnace���the largest in  Canada.  A shipment of Rossland War Eagle  ore, 120 tons, recently went $40 in  gold per ton.  Rossland is talking of a long tunnel  project now, by way of diversion. It  is Sandon's turn next.  The C. P. R. will be extensively  shippmg coal from Hosmer, East Kootenay," before the end of this year.  Rossland's scuth belt, is now yield-  ng silver-lead ores bringing about $50  per ton or $1,200 to $1,500 per car.  The Vancouver mine in the Slocan  was the second largest lead shipper in  the, province last month. - Its silver  values for the same shipment .were the  highest.  I^ast week a London cable announced  a dividend of  two shillings   for LeRoi  No. 2,   making a  total of   14 shillings  declared in dividends by this company  isince 1905.  Tho Shff#p C.rppk district, near Ymir.  is now working the Mother Lode and  Kootenay Bell. F. P. Drummond and  associates have taken out a couple of  cars within the last two weeks from the  Mother Lode.  The recent change in silver-lead  smelting lates, while being more advantages to ore shippers, still include  the 60-day final settlement clause.  This has not been rescinded as previously reported.  J. H. Rogers has made the first pay-  ent of $5,000 on the $125,000 bond  n the Hidden Treasure Co.'s group  of copper claims on Observatory Inlet, Portland canal. Some 25 miners  are at work for the American capitalists  taking hold.  Robert Campbell, of Moyie, which  is to follow the St. Eugene lead under  Lake Moyie, says that all the money  necessary for the prosecution of this  very unusual enterprise has been  subscribed. A shaft is' being sunk on  the edge of the laice, that being the  only available ground.  The B. C. Amalgamated Coal Co.  has beeured options on coal lands at  Merritt, owned by William Voight, H.

Those who know Sheep Creek Valley  predict that its development this spring  and summer will be the most conspicuous feature in mining in the  Kooten.iy. In the Queen mine, work  ed by W. Waldie, not only have the  satisfactory results continued in the  original ore bodies but quite recently  new and valuable discoveties have  been made at depth. Meanwhile the  Nugget, operated by W. B. Pool, nnd  ihe Emerald, operated by John Wald-  beser, have become steady shippers of  high grade ore.  Work of Great Valae.

HIGH-GRADE  BY  THE  pboenij pioneer  As in any other calling, trade or profession, the Printing  business always has some in it that produce work a little better  than the ordinary and a good deal better than most of them.  Such an establishment is that of the PHOENIX PIONEER,  where the endeavor is to turn out the BEST QUALITY OF  WORK that can be done with paper, type and ink.  The best evidence of our success is the fact that we are  and have been busier than other offices in this district, and are  producing work that other offices do not attempt. Only the  most competent workmen are employed, with the result that a  high standard of efficiency is secured���and at no increase in cost  to the customer.  With a complete equipment, from Presses and Type to  Punching, Perforating and Wire Stitching machines and the best  grade of stock obtainable, we are in position to give prompt attention to orders for  Mining Forms and Blanks Business Stationery  Office Stationery       Lodge and Church Work  In Any Quantity  In fact, we can give you anything supplied in a first-class  metropolitan printing establishment.

This was  egotistically implying that if he had  been there the hero of Trafalgar would  not have been Nelson. And when you  come to think about it the words aptly  apply in a local reporter, with every  semblance of egotism lopped off. A  newspaper man cannot be everywhere,  and hence lie is liable to lose an item  occasionally, that might be worked up  into a good story, and at the same lime  keep pace with things . occutring. In  these times the missing of a slice of  news is a hardship, as it is often necessary in' make brick without straw, so to  speak, in order to fill up. A wink is as  good as a nod to a blind horsr, lint to  a reporter'either-one-or-the other'.'may  put him m*xt to a matter of interest to  ihe general pttbl't*. S.i if juti hear, of  anything lhat may hot possibly come  our way just flag us.  ��������  A prize is < flered by the Pioneer for  the best answer to  the question as to  why it is that there is so   much  scrapping and  squabbling  about- amateur  sports hereabouts.   Whether it be base-  b.tll or hockey, or what not, someone  always seems. to  be  travelling around  with a chip on  bis  shoulder���and of  course there is another equally  ready  to knock it cfT, when   lhe   trouble begins.   These sports are almost as bad  rbout this as a church choir or a band,  fur agreeing tu disagree/seemingly no  mailer whal happens.  If as many men Were laid out, per  capita, in the mines as are placed hors  de combat, ther^ would be a great and  justifiable outcry about the mines being  veritable   slaughterhouses.

Now, really, is it not odd?  Some one of an investigating turn  of mind has discovered that it will be  200 years before there will again be  five Saturdays in the month of February. That means that it will be just  that long before the public will have  the advantage of reading five issues of  the I'hoenix Pioneer in February again.  Why is it that writers in describing  the mineral resources, of British Col  umbia, are so inaccurate? Nine out  of ten of. them, unless trained newspaper men, get any old figures that occur to them in their stories���and ap-  artntly make no effort to verify from  any one:in authority. The straight,  plain, unvarnished truth, if properly  handled makes a good story any time.  In the February issue of the Canada  West magazine, published at Winnipeg,  N. A. Bowere, who visited this country  some months ago, has an article on  our minerals. There are two illustrations of the Granby mines. Referring to the district, the article says, for  instance: "During the past year it produced the inconceivable amount of  1,500,000 tons of copper." That is  to say, Mr. Bowere asserts that three  billions of pounds of copper were  produced here in 1907���many times  more than in the balance of the world.  Perhars it is a typographical error, but,  if so, it is inexcusable. Then again  he says that Phoenix mines have produced a. total 1,000,000 tons of ore.  As a matter of fact, it is about 5,000,-  000 tons up to date. For informing  purposes, such stuff is the veriest  drivel.  The irresponsible windbag at Grand  Forks, who sends alleged news to  papers at the coast that do hot know  his system, has put his foot inio it  again. Recently he wrote a stcry  about the Nickel Plate mine at Hedley,  saying that. 140 men were employed  there, lhat 110 stamps were dropping  at the.mill, that the concentrates were  shipped by rail to New York, and a  few other things that any man familiar  with the country knows to be faked up  and not in accord with the facts.  These things were printed in the coast  papers,'and then copied by interior  weeklies.  ���w  Frank A. Ross, manager of the Daly  Reduction Co., Ltd., operating the  Nickel Plate, was in Phoenix this week,  and we asked him about it. Naturally,  be was disgusted with' the whole lot of  bosh. The mill is operating 40 stamps,  there are 95 men employed, and as .for  shipping, concentrates to New York,  lhe statement is absurd on the face of  it���hauling them 3.500 or 4,000 miles  with dozens' of smelters in the west.  As a matter of fact, they go to Everett,  Wash. Any man who can put an effective stopper on that Grand Forks  writer should be presentad with a  medal worth while. He is certainly  the limit in his line.  wSHiirfc'h'<iUse'ShiIoh's Ct,r��  V^llllUll Ofor the worst cold.  ���f~\ thesharpest couj.;h  VyUl*�� ���try it on a guar  antee  of your  f\w*nr��o money back  if it  xjUflCa   .'���. doesn't actually  CURE quicker  than anything you  ever tried.

Sarsaparilla, however, when  used in combination with Compound  Salatone and Extract Dandelion,  works wonders.- This combination  puts the kidneys to work to filter  and sift out the waste matter, uric  acid, and other impurities that cause  lisease.
