Granby's Principal Outlet Will  Be in Operation Monday  Granby's Victori.a shipping- outlet  will be   in  full  operation   again on  Monday, after a , fortnight's forced  idleness.    The new casting*, a wheel  weighing-  3000 pounds,  arrived by  special freight from Spokane at two  o'clock yesterday morning*  and the  work of installing. ,was   rushed immediately and will be completed tonight or .tomorrow.* r Next week the  shipments   from, the   mine   should  again be normal.  Work is progressing* favorably on  the construction work ot\ the No. 3  Granby shipping outlet. The tramway to the Great Northern track  has been built and the foundation of  the ore   bins, is  under  wav      Two  t > ���*  months will likely be required to  complete the shippings facilities to  output ore.  Consolidated's Good Showing:  The operations of the Consolidated Mining, &.,Smelting- company's  smelter at Trail for January make�� a  --very^fkvorable ^sbowi ng,"*' 'accord ing*  to a statement just issued by the  company.      During the "month the  - company received 34,500 tons of ore  and smelted 32,958.tons. The gross  output for the month was about  $349,000, of which 58 per cent of  the values was gold.  The January statement is very  nearly a duplicate of that for December. In December 35,000 tons of  ore were received and 36,360 tons  were smelted. The gross output  w&s $351,000 of which-53 per cent  ofthe values was gold.  During* the seven months ending  with Jan. 31, the company has produced about $2,645,000 gross value  of metals.   *��.   Mr. Biesel Takes a Trip  Charles Biesel. superintendent ofthe  Consolidated company's Snowshoe,  Amalgamated and Number Seven  mines, left Phoenix Thursday to inspect some mines in Michigan. When  asked concerning his trip Mr. Biesel  stated that he was going to do some  professional work in Michigan for a  large eastern firm and would be away  for about three weeks. An unofficial  report, however, says that Mr. Biesel  is slated for an important position with  the Gunn-Thompson company of New  York, with whom W. H. Aldridge, recently managing director'' of the Consolidated, is now associated. As superintendent of the Consolidated's  Boundary mines Mr. Biesel has held  an important and responsible position  in which he has been eminently successful, and while his many Boundary  friends would regret his leaving the  district they will be pleased to congratulate him on a higher position in  the mining world.

Operations on the Greenwood-  Phoenix bore are in 1460 feet and  24 men are busily tunneling. The  ore is not expected to be struck until about 2200 feet have been driven.  J. E. McAllister, general manager  of   the   British   Columbia    Copper  T*i  company, is now in Montreal, returning from attending the annual  meeting of the company in New  ;York; ���        -   -*     <  \ -1.--^~;,.  The Bonntngton Falls power plant  is undergoing its annual repairs and  in the meantime the Kootenay Power company has put its Cascade  plant into commission. The Cascade  plant will be operated for about  three weeks.  Ola Lofstad, president of the Argo  Mining and Tunnel company, is in  Phoenix from Greenwood showing  some good specimens of ore taken  from the Argo property, which he  states is showing up particularly  well at present.  Work on the tram line from the  Lone Star mine oi the British Columbia. Copper company to Bbun-!  dary Falls is hearing completion,  the cable being now strung on the  last section of the towers. It is expected that shipments, over the new  line will commence about the middle  of April.  O. B. Smith, superintendent of  the Granby mines, left yesterday for  Goose Bay, Portland Canal, on a  trip of inspection to the Hidden  Creek mine, which the Granby is  developing under bond. E. E. Jackson accompanied him and will spend  the summer prospecting Mril the  Goose Bay district.  Frederic Keffer, consulting engineer of the British Columbia Copper company, was in Phoenix Tuesday inspecting the installing, of the  crusher at the Rawhide mine. He  had just returned from a professional  visit to the Sheep Creek district and  speaks  enthusiastically of some of  the properties which   are  being developed in, that district.     , /,   . VVr  's''Shipping hasp been discontinued  from the Phoenix Amalgamated to  Trail smelter. It is understood the  ore being shipped was qf .too! low  a grade to mine at a profit under  present copper prices.* Development  work .will be carried on vigorously,  however, and it is expected that  a better grade of ore will be secured  'l<     �� ,      "!    " ' * .  i A f  and shipments recommenced in the  course of a few weeks.  The Grand Forks Gazette says  that the Granby smelter created a  new record by treating 24,367 tons  'of ore during the week, ending Feb.  16.'. This is- riot correct. There have  been a score of weeks in which the  smelter has treated a larger tonnage.  In the month of December, 1909,  Granby smelter treated an average  of over 27,000 tons each week. , A  record of 27,803 tons for seven days  was made in the month referred to,  while for the week ending May 7,  1910, 27,675 tons were. treated.,  Granby mines.. at Phoenix have,  shipped as high as' 30,57.7 tons*iitv* a,  weekend'1121763 hi a month...

Th'e' production was  827,272 pounds of refined copper,  2,376 ounces of|igold and 9,545  ounces of silver. ;[��  The severe weather and the diffi-  culty in getting % good  supply of'  coke were factors, in  lowering the ������'  profits and  increasing  the- cost of'";  copper   production, by /interfering   ;  with operations at the'smelter.' \  During the snow blockades in the  Crows Nest some weeks ago the run  of the  coke  .ovens - was   interfered,  with by lack   of coal   through lnon  supply  of cars.   ��� The  ovens were'  started and stopped frequently.

Notice  is also given for   the   holding of an  extraordinary   general   meeting   of  the  company immediately after the  annual meeting, when the following,  resolution will be submitted:  ,4That  the capital  of  the   company   be increased to $1,500,000 by  the  creation and issue of 500,000 shares of  $1   each."      The   transfer   book is  closed until after the meeting.    The  statement issued gives the cash balance on January 1  as $7,154.84 and  notes receivable amount to $3760.  The expense incurred to date is $18,-  603 of which amount about $15,000  was for development work.

The company is looking forward  to a new source of coke supply when  the Kettle Valley railway completes  its line to the Nicola Valley coal  mines. It is also suggested that a  connecting link may be made sooner  with the Great Northern's V.V. &E.  line now built through the Similkameen to Princeton. Freight rates  oh coal and coke from this source  will be materially lower than present  rates* paid by the British Columbia  Copper company.   :������--��� '���   Boundary Ore Tonnages  Following are the returns of the  output of the mines and smelters of  the Boundary district for the week  ending Mar. 4 and for year to date:  Granby. . .'. . . .  . . . 16,338  192,664  Mother Lode..  ....  5,964  51,997  Jack Pot ......

The measures expiring by  effluxion of time most probably will  include the revived  bills , of; Messrs  Hawthornthwaite and, P. Williams,  providing respectively  against' discrimination adverse to Labor,Union  membership, and .for, the  assurance  of at  least  fortnightly  wage   payments, ,..their   non-adoption    being  chiefly by,reason of neglect  on the  part of the  authors - to  push them  forward as the,session has proceeded,   although  fair  explanation   for  such delay is found in the incessant  activity of,the.Socialists to fully discharge the functions of criticism with  respect   %o,   the   many    Ministerial  measures.    In this  connection due  credit must be  paid   to   Mr.   Hawthornthwaite,    as   well  as  to  Mr.  friends during the session precedent,  but still he has been distinctly temperate forgone of his political prede-  lictions, intensely vigorous and un-  intermittently active���the readiest  member of all in repartee and the  richest in the god-given saving grace  of humor.  In general legislation the just past  week has been a heavy one, so heavy  indeed that individual measures display a tendency to   lose   themselves  in the mass.     Of the 81   public and  private bills presented  this session,  the   greater   proportion   have   now  passed through one or   more stages  within the past five days.      Among  the measures that have actually been  given third reading during the week,  and   which    now   only   await   His  Honor's formal assent  to take their  place among the statute laws of the  land, are the consolidated   Railway  Act, providing for the simplification  of railway company procedure; the  Coal Mines Regulation bill,   which  at its final stage obtained the special  endorsement even of the  Socialist  captain,   who  declared   it  the best  legislation of  its   character,   in the  public interest, that  could  possibly  be devised under present social conditions, and probably the   best  law  for the protection of coal mine workers as yet enacted in any part of the  world;  the  bills reconstituting the  Department vof Public   Works'and  establishing   that   of  Railways; together with sundry   others   of  individual interest but,  by  comparison,  secondary      general       importance.  Among the public bills in the hands  of private members, Mr. P.Williams'  hardy annual to   compel fortnightly  payment of wages, has seen the light  apparently just in time   to be neatly  shelved for another  year.      This is  the most regrettable in that the principal features of the   measure  commend themselves.     It is,   however,  the introducer's  fault  if it   fails in  consummation, it having  day after  day been "passed oyer"   at   his request', since almost the  first  day of  ' the session.      This year this bill  in- i  eludes a new section providing that  at least five per  cent  of   wages be  paid in cash upon an employee's dismissal, this being for the special protection of loggers^   who usually are  paid   off" at  the   camps   with  time  checks    redeemable   in   Vancouver.  These the logger as a   rule deposits  with the purser of some   steamer as  security for his fare,   Mr.   Williams   *  states, and upon arrival  in  the city  is forced to ,look up some one to advance him the money to redeem the  time check.-   He customarily goes to  the hotelkeeper and gratitude there-  after;impels him, added   to   natural  inclination after an   arduous   period  in the woods,  to indulge   in   relax-  ation(not infrequently continued until he'is "flat busted'? and   in a condition to oe picked up by   the   managers! of. the  Strathcona  Institute.  As for the desired   fortnightly' payments,, of  wages,   the   member for  Newcastle   freely   admitted   that it  might be necessary to limit  the application of this condition  either by  the employing capacity of the plants  or by its distance from a town ' possessing banking facilities,   so as to  work  no   hardship   upon   industrial  enterprises.

Naturally,   the  younger the person is when the purchase is begun, the smaller   will be  the payments which he or  she   will  have to make  to   secure  the  same  Annuity, arid'smaller will be the apparent cost.

If the, old  gentleman had been ,provident in his  younger days and had laid aside but  10c a week, the amount accumulated  at 3% compound   interest   which he  would have had at his disposal at 80  would have   purchased   for   him,an  Annuity of $180 a year,   an   income  sufficient  to   have   enabled   him to  have provided for himselfrfor the rfe^  mainder of his days.      Had   he had  the* opportunity at��0, asiali' residents  of 'Canada have todays of paying in  to the'Government'Annuities fund a  sum of 10c a week, hispincome at 80  would have been over $525  instead  of$180, and had he died at any time:  before attaining.the  age  of 80: his1  heirs.would .have received every ceht  that he had paid <in?~< with^ 3%   compound interest up to the dateof his  death.

The three ot them  were "broke" tbgetliera few years  ago, and he was enough of a Socialist to be ready to divide with them.

It is  impossible   to   obtain  exact details as the  police and post-  office officials are   saying   but  little  but it is thought the robbers made a  haul amounting to  $38,000 as the  mail    included    money   and    many  packages ot gold dust and nuggets.  The police believe   the robbery took  place while the steamer was  on the  run from Skagvvay to Prince Rupert  and that the robbers   landed   at the  latter port.     On  the  passenger list  were 20 men who landed   at Prince  Rupert.      Officials   of  the   steamer  were greatly surprised when told  of  the theft and they cannot see how it  occurred as the mail room was guarded in the usual careful manner.   o   Fresh oyster cocktails at the Hotel  Brooklyn bar.  MATHIEU'S SYRUP  of Tar audi Cod Liver Oil  This famous remedy is made  of two curative agents of proved  efficacy in diseases of the throat  and lungs.  Beech Tar directly relieves a  cough or cold, and at once begins  to heal the delicate passages; Cod  Liver Oil strengthens, and builds u��p  the system. These two ingredients  are scientifically combined in the  pleasant tasting Mathieu's Syrup.  Mathieu's Syrup does not merely  suppress the symptons of disease,  it removes their cause. It not only  relieves���it cures.  There is nothing better for  children. They like it^ ani should  take it on the first appearance of &  cold. Keep a bottle always at hand.
