Arc About Ready to Produce 25,000,000 Pounds of Copper  Yearly.  Some weeks ago the Pioneer referred  to the possibility of a consolidation of  the B.C. Copper and the Dominion  Copper Companies, and the following  from New York, compiled to a large  extent from the recently issued Pioneer  Annual, and based on ��� what the two  corporations have accomplished, as  well as on what they are expected to  do in the future, will be found of in  terest in this connection :  New York, Mar. 1.���There are rumors of a merger of the British Columbia Copper Companyand the Dominion  Copper  Company, and the talk is not |  560. At 7 '/[ the stock of the Dominion  company, with its $1,000,000 of bonds,  are selling at a market value of $4,625,-  000. The present market value of the  two companies combined is$8,903,1560.  There are 135,000 shares of Granby  stock outstanding. At $150 the company is selling at a market value of $20,-  250,006, or a difference of $ 11,346,440.  The Granby company is at present  paying dividends at the rate of 12%,  and it is expected that it will earn during the coming year at the rate of 24%  to 30% on the stock.  The smelting plants of the British  altogether without foundation. ' Colnmbia and the Dominion compan-  It   can   be stated   with  authority.   ies are but _a .short _ distance  apart.  authority,  however, that no definite steps have  been taken or overtures, with a view of  consolidation, yet been made by either  of these two interests, There is reason  to believe that a consolidation of the  companies may take place, however,  during the coming year.  A combination of the smelters and  mines of these companies would result  in an enterprise that would compare  favorably with the Granby company,  both as to size and the amount of output. The Granby mines and smelter  are located in the same district in British Columbia, as are the bulk of the  British Columbia and all of the Dominion properties.  The maximum capacity of the combined smelting plants of the B.C. and  Dominion companies is 3,000 tons ore  per day. With the furnaces working  at their full capacity they should pro  duce at least 25,000.000 pounds of  copper annually. This production is  figured on a recovery of only 20 pounds  of copper per ton of.rock treated, which  is undoubtedly two or more pounds  less than w'hat is ' actually recovered  from these bres^ J" ,7 J -      - �����"���'���'. -'  .  -PROSPECTIVE   EARNINGS."  ���    I  As both companies anticipate reducing the cost ol producing copper to  eight cents a pound with their improved  smelting plants, the above mentioned  production (25,000,000 pounds) would  give the combined companies' net earnings of $3,000,000 or 30% on a capitalization of $10,000,000; 25% on a  capital of $12,000,000; 23% on $13,-  000,000, and 20% on $15,000,000.  Placing the recovery of copper at 22  pounds per ton cf rock treated, the annual production with present facilities  would be approximately -27,720,000  pounds of copper.  Figuring again on a 20-cent market,  with cost of production at 8 cents, the  net earnings would be $3,326,400 or  33% on a capital of $io,ooo,oco; 27%  on $12,000,000; 25% on $13,000,000;  22% on $15,000,000.  With a yield of 24 pounds of copper  to ton of rock treated the production  would be increased to over 30,000,000  pounds of copper, and the net earnings  $300,000 to $3,628,000.  The Granby ores yield on an average  24 pounds of copper to the ton treated,  and there is a good possibility of the  combined Dominion and British Columbia companies' ores being made to  yield a like return.  QUESTION   OF   CAPITALIZATION.  While there is nothing at present to  base any assumption as to what a British Columbia-Dominion company consolidation would be capitalized at, the  foregoing figures are presented merely  to convey an idea as to what the earning power of the combined companies  would be under the various capitalizations mentioned, with their present  mining and smelting facilities and with  copper at 20 cents per pound.  Including the recent stock issue of  the British Columbia Copper Company,  there will be outstanding 503,360  shares of the total authorized issue of  600,000 shares of the company. There  are 96,640 shares of unissued stock in  the British Columbia treasury.  COMPARED   WITH   GRAN11V.  At 8)4 the 503,360 outstanding  shares have a market value of $4,278,-  The former is located at Greenwood  and the latter at Boundary Falls, three  miles distant. Both plants are on the  same branch of the Canadian Pacific  MINES IN SAME DISTRICT.  Al Deadwood, three miles from the  B. C. Copper Co. smelter, is located  the Mother Lode group,'the principal  mine of the B. C Copper Co. This  mine is thoroughly equipped, and a  large tonnage ot ore is being taken  from it daily. Directly adjoining the  Mother"Lode group is the Sunset group  of mines, owned by the Dominion  company, which includes the Crown  Silver, Florence fraction; C. O. D. and  Sunset mines.  Important developments have taken  place in these properties during the  last year. The Dominion company  owns the Morrison group, which is  also located in Deadwood camp.  At Summit camp the.British Columbia company owns some very valuable  properties, which include the B. C.  group, the Oro Denoro and the Emma  group, the latter of which the company  owns a three-quatter^intbrest. .In .this  same camp is located the Mountain  Rose mine, which is owned by the Dominion company. Summit camp is  served by both the Canadian Pacific  and Great Northern railways.  GREATER ECONOMY   POSSIBLE.  It is quite obvious that, with the  smelters and a number of the mining  properties of both companies in such  close proximity that larger operations  with increased results and a corresponding degree of economy would occur un  der a single and capable management.  Following are the approximate areas  of the several groups owned by the  British Columbia Copper Company:  ACRES  Mother Lode group    80  Emma group  140  Oro Denoro  50  Napoleon group  100  Lone Star and Washington .... 30  Total     400  The properties owned by the Dominion company cover some 500 acres in  area, and all are located in the Boundary district.  The Brooklyn, Stemwinder, Montezuma, Idaho, Standard and Rawhide  properties are located at Phoenix, and  adjoin on two sides the Granby mines.  The claims in the Sunset group adjoin, as before mentioned, the Mother  Lode group of the British Columbia  company. The Dominion company  also owns the Morrison group in Dead-  wood camp, and control in the Athelstan group in Wellington camp, and  owns the Mountain Rose in Summit  camp.  During the past year both companies have remodeled and thoroughly  modernized their respective smelting  plants, and when these improvements  are completed the plants will compare  favorably with the best in British Co  lumbia,   namely, the Granby smelter.  Under the conditions noted, it seems  that a consolidation of the two companies would result in a strong combination, and with efficient management would, in a short time, make  favorable comparisons with its very  successful neighbor, the Granby Consolidated.

This is the first business like attempt in many years to  publish a mining paper in Spokane,  and the initial issue gives evidence of  intention to stay and be a mining and  financial success���not an easy combination in any part of the Northwest.

At the Snowshoe mine the force is  now about 80 men.  It is expected to have two furnaces  in operation at the B.C. Copper Co.'s  smelter early next week.  This week the Granby No. 3* tunnel  has been worked with three shifts lor  the first time in some months.  A Greenwood syndicate is being  formed to work the Dimond fraction,  which adjoins the Providence mine.  The B.C. Copper Co. has about 50  horses hauling ore from the Napoleon  mine to the Great Northern, over bad  roads.  Granby's shipments for February���  28 days���were the smallest for many  moons, being but 32,465 tons, thanks  to the crippled railway traffic generally.  It is said that the ore now being  worked on in the Strathmore is exceedingly rich, running high in native silver.  About 15 men are employed at this  property.  From Greenwood comes the report  that the B.C. Copper Co. will mine  and ship some of the sulphur ore from  the Morrison mine, Deadwood camp,  for a time, while the roads to the company's Napoleon mine aire in such bad  shape.  Ore is being stoped from the Riverside and Badger group, near Rock  creek, and shipments are to be made  before long. This is 'the high grade  galena group that was bonded to P. J.  Dermody and Spokane associates for  $60,000 a short time ago.  It will be a month or two yet before  the mammoth new furnace is ready for  smelting operations at the Dominion  Copper Co.'s Boundary Falls smelter.  The delayed car loads of steel and  other material having finally arrived,  no time is being lost in the installation.  On the 1st of April the final payment of $3,000 on the $30,000  bond on the Skylark mine will be due,  and the company now has the money  in the bank to meet it. For the last  thirty months the company has paid  $1,000 per month on the bond, and  has taken it out. of the mine.  In about two weeks Manager Hodges  "expects -to- be prepared- to operate-all-  eight of his battery of enlarged furnaces  at the Granby smelter, when he can  handle about 3,000 tons of ore each  twenty-four hours. It all depends on  the supply of coke as to the time of  getting the complete battery in blast,  the railways falling down somewhat  this week again.  Development at the Jewel mine,  the only property being worked in  Long Lake camp, is reported to b��  showing up very satisfactorily under  R. R. Roberts, the superintendent.  This property, which was formerly  owned by the Jewel Gold Mines, Ltd.,  is now said to be controlled by W.  Galloway, a banker living in Scotland.  Last week a rather bad rock slide  occurred at the B.C. Copper Co.'s  Mother Lode mine, by which the ore  crusher building was damaged and put  out of commission for a few days. A  slide had never occurred there before.  Fortunately, no one was hurt, the men  in the building being warned by unusual noises as the rock began to give  way.  The active work of laying the six-  inch compressed air line from the Dominion Copper Co.'s new Idaho compressor to the Rawhide mine, some  thing over a mile, is now under way.  When completed and' the compressor  is in operation, the Rawhide will be  operated with more machine drills  than at present, to supply the increased  ore tonnage.  The new electric hoist for the Moreen mine, Deadwood camp, being  operated by the Alliance Gold and  Copper Mining Co., has arrived at  Greenwood, and is being placed in  position at the property. A. J. Morrison, the superintendent, is preparing  to resume active operations at the  property, where extensive development  will soon be under way, some men going up to the mine this week. Officials  of the company are expected in the  Boundary from Minneapolis in a few  days.   New Officers for Miner*' Union.  The semiannual election of Phoenix Miners' Union No. S, W. F. of M.,  took place here last Saturday, and  there being considerable interest in  the outcome, a large vote was polled.  The following were chosen to have  charge of the affairs of the union for  the ensuing six months :  President, W. J. Louttit; vice-president, Dan Paterson; financial secretary, Walter Morrison (re elected) ; recording secretary, Carlton H. Cook ;  assistant recording secretary, D. J.  Weir ; treasurer, Walter S. Cook ; conductor, H. Walsh ; warden, S. S. Van-  buskirk; trustees, 1. M elver, Angus  McPherson, W. S. Cook, Frank Knott  and D. W. McKenzie; delegate to  Denver convention, Robert D. Mitchell ; delegates to annual meeting of  district association No. 6, meeting  this week at Rossland, Walter Morrison, Neil McBeth, J. Frank Jones  W. D. McKenzie and J. C. Halsey.  GRANBY C0.'S  N0.6 DIVIDEND  $405,000 Declared this  Week.  Brings Total Dividends Up To  $2,158,360.  Last Tuesday at the regular monthly  meeting of the board of directors of  the Granby Consolidated, held at the  company's New York office, 52 Broad  way,.a regular quarterly dividend of  two per cent was declared and an extra  dividend of on 2 per cent upon the par  value of the stock outstanding,, payable  out of the net earnings of the company  on March 30th, 1907. For this purpose the transfer books of the company close March 15th and reopen  April 1st. As there are now -issued  135,000 shares ofthe new par value of  $100, this dividend amounts to $405,  000, or exactly the same as for eaJch of  the four dividends declared, by this  company during 1906. The company's first dividend was paid in December, 1903, and was at the rate of  one per cent.  For the lest two or three months  the company has been operating with  great difficulty, owing to weather conditions and car, fuel and coke shortage, common all over the west, and it  must be pleasant to shareholders to  note that, notwithstanding these adverse matters, the company is able to  continue its dividend,.' paying policy.  With the above difficulties done away  now very shortly, it would not be surprising if the June extra dividend was  larger than the one per cent now declared in this way. The stock is now  oh a regular eight per cent basis, with  ���'extras" liable to be added at the  time of any regular declaration.  . This makes more thin $2,000,000  that the Granby will have paid in profits to.the shareholders, the payments  and amounts jbeingJas follows : .

Thomas R.Drummond, local-man--  ager for the Dominion Copper Co.,  according "to Boston reports is slated  for a similar position with the Nipissing  mine at Cobalt, of which company,  Samuel Newho'use is the president and  M.M.Johnson the consulting engineer.  Ralph Smailes, of Greenwood, who  has been absent since last August,  working on Midway and Vernon railway affairs, was in Greenwood last  week for a few days, departing again  on the same business, which he feels ]..  confident of "bringing to _a successful..  issue at no distant dnte,  Dr. R."B. Boucher and wife left  last Saturday for ..Vancouver,., for a  visit. In a couple of weeks, or thereabouts, they will start for the east,  whence they go to Vienna, Austria,  where the doctor expects to be for a ���  year or two. On their way east they  will likely stop in Phoenix again for a-  few days.  ' R. H. Anderson, at one time in  charge of the B.C. mine, in Summit  camp, has resigned his position as  superintendent of the Sullivan Group  Mining Company at JKJimberley, and  James Finley, mayor of Cranbrook,  B.C., has been appointed to succeed  him.

Opinion Regarding Pioneer's  Fourth Annual.  Did you labor last Sunday ? If so,  you had better watch out or the Sunday Observance Act will catch you���  and then'there'll be trouble.  ��� Cobalt is undoubtedly a great mining camp, but it differs from most  mining camps in that it does not have  many booze shops. A few days ago  the conductors of several "blind pigs"  in that locality were fined $i 1,000.  If accounts are reliable, they should be  able to dig this small sum out of almost any "of the prospects in a day or  two.  Hereafter, in leferring to the mem  ber for Vale-Cariboo, one ihojld be  particular to specify which Duncan  Ross is meant, as Duncan C. Ross,  son of ex-Premier Ross, of Ontario,'  was returned to Ottawa ��� week before  last in West Middlesex. However,  our own Duncan will not be likely to  allow his light to be hid under a  bushel, for he is not built that way,  Spring has been tapping at the back  door of winter of late with some success, 'l'he rest of this year, with  the weal her conditions settled again,  promises to be a record breaker in  copper production in the Boundary.  In another month or two, there .should  be at least 5,000 tons of ore mined,  shipped and treated every twenty-four  hours in this district.  Recently the Pioneer remarked on a  flotation that is doing extensive stock  advertising in the east under the title  of the British-American Mines and  Smelter Co., purporting to have rich  copper properties in East Kootenay,  alleged by close to the Granby. The  concern still seems to be angling for  suckers through publicity in papers  that do not care whether their readers  are bitten or not, and the latest issue of  the B.C. Mining Record gives it a  great setting out. The sooner such  concerns are exposed and forced out  of business the better for the investing  public.  As foreshadowed a month ago in  these col urns, tins week the Granby  Consolidated declared its first "regular"  quarterly two rer cent, dividend, with  an extra dividend of one per cent.  This dividend is payable March 30th.  Like the last four previous declarations,  this profit sharing amounts to $405,-  000, and makes a total of $2,158,630  The following article appears in the  current issue of the British Columbia  Mining Record, published at Victoria:  The "Fourth Annual Holiday Number" of the Pioneer, published at  Phoenix, Boundary district, is the best  and most useful publication dealing  with the important mining and smelt  ing industries of the district from which  has been obtained, during several recent years the 'greater'1 part "'of the  copper produced in Canada, that has  come under our notice. Freely illustrated descriptions of mining camps,  individual mines, smelters, electric  power systems, railways, etc., together  with valuable and instructive statistics  relating to, the mineral production of  the Boundary, fill most of the pages;of  this special number which contains  between 60 and 70 pages.  There are riparly 100 half tones of  mine, smelter and other -views, representative men, and including line cuts  of modern maps of the district and of  different sections of it, prepared speciallyfor the,Pioneer, consequently up-to-  date and giving the leading features^of  this big mining district: The outlying  camps���Franklin, up the north fork of  Kettle river; Beaverdell and Camp  McKinney^-rali .have attention..-, Pro-  roinenceiis7given, as well,������; to=what are  known Jas. the." high grade" mines of  the Bbundarjvjthese including a number of silver-gold quartz properties in  Greenwood, I'hoenix and Beaverdell  Carmi camps.' A briei7 historical account of. the district, some in formation  concerning its chief - "parliamentary  friends," and particulars of several of  its towns and their institutions are;also  given.; .,��� -.'-'.' \y.A..AAY-   ,..Za'  Altogether the "Annual" is a publication that "is distinctly*a credit to its  enterprising publisherpW. B. Willcox,  whileJ the wide distribution of the  6,900 copies printed cannot fail to be of  much benefit to the district, especially  sjnee much' care has been taken to  make the information reliable. For all  interested;5 or likelytb be, in the min  ing district producing the larger part of  the ore mined in British Columbia,  this number will be found worth far  more than the 25 cents price at which  it is published.  Boundary stockholders of the International Coal and Coke Company were  pleased with the annual report of the  company, which was presented at a recent meeting in Spokane. The mines  are located at,; Coleman, Alberta, and  during the three years that the company has been' working a surplus of  $393,469 has been accumulated. A.  iC\ Flumerfelt, of Victoria, and H. N.  Galer, of Coleman, president and vice-  president of the company, attended  the Spokane meeting. Tbe leading  features of the repnrt follow :  A dividend of $28,000 was paid on  February 1st of the present year, and  the surplus at the close of 1906 was  $393,469. The company has been in  active operation just three years, and  the present plant cost $429,707. During the last year $35,000 was spent in  extending the plant, including the construction of 90 coke ovens.  The net profit of the year was $198,-  192, being over 7 per cent, on outstanding capital. During 1906 334,-  230 tons of coal were produced and ol  this 49,638 tons went to the company's  coke ovens, producing 31,066 tons of  coke, the balance being disposed of on  the market.  The company's payroll for the year  was $360,874, the average number of  men employed being 365, who worked  249 days.  The company suffered for want of  cars to carry away their output/an incident, that prevented their working  the men full time, and which cut down  their profits.  The directors elected were: H. N.  Galer, Coleman; W. G. Graves and D.  Schultz, Spokane; C.S. Houghton,  Bostoni and D. M.J Rogers, Victoria.  The officers elected are : A. C. Flumerfelt, president; H. N. Galer, vice-  presideut; and W. G. Graves, secretary.  OUR COPPER CORNER  Da Nat Crowd the System.  The first warm days of spring bring  with them a desire to get out and enjoy the exhiliratmg air and sunshine.  Children that have been housed up all  winter are brought put aiid you wonder  where they all came from. The heavy  winter clothing is thrown aside and  many shed their flannels. Then a cold  wave comes and people say that grip  is epidemic. Colds at this season are  even more dangerous than in midwinter, as there is much more danger  of pneumonia. Take Chamberlain's  Cough Remedy, however, and you will  have nothing to fear. It always cures,  and we have never known a cold to  result in pneumonia when it was' used.  It is pleasant and safe to take. Children like it.    For sale by all druggists.  An exchange tells of a newspaper  reporter who interviewed thirty successful business men and found that  all of them when boys had been governed strictly and frequently thrashed.  He also interviewed thirty loafers and  learned that twenty.seven of them had  been "mamma's darling," and the  other three had been reared by their  grandmothers/  Copper is now the- most   important  metal  in the world, says  the  Mining  and Engineering Review.    A  shrink  ag=i in production   immediately affects  all of the industries, as electric power  has become a  vital   factor  iri   trade,  commerce and manufacture.    To such  an enormous extent has : the - demand  grown that it is -impossible to create a  surplus   and   there  is" absolutely no  " visible supply" as in  former years.  The product is purchased  for months  ahead in many of the big mines.   It is  true that many important discoveries  were made within  the past two years,  and the mines   of Inyo  county, California, and Ely, Nevada, will add much  to the production.    But discoveries do  not mean that copper can be immediately produced and  become a marketable  commodity.     Development, no  matter how active, cannot put big cop-j  per mines on a producing   basis   in a  year or perhaps not  in   two, three or  five  years,   everything  depending  on  conditions, finances,.facilities for transportation, cost of mining, etc. '������-'.'���  ' When production begins in the newly discovered; carrips it will be unprece  dented:    But in   the' meantime  consumption is ever on.the increase, and  since the fact began to be recognized,  about j 903, that c-the  world's  normal  production; .with;-the mines .then   in  operation; could not  keep  pace  with  ;the;demaiid,rthe- price has  advanced  rapidly from n .cents  in 1903 to 12  cents in 1904,   14 cents  in   1905, 18  cents  in. 1906. and   25 cents in 1907  approximately in round figures.     And  the end is not yet, for consumers can-  hot  hope  lor help .from Green water,  ���Ubeheba, or   Ely this  year, and   perhaps   not  next, for  the  impediments  which confront   the men who are putting their money in   those  camps  are  more  than  can   be .conceived  by the  ordinary layman.  ; So that  those who  arc* predicting   30  and  40  cents   for  'copper- this   year may not   be so far  from a good guess as may be imagined.  The incentive to mine for copper at  the  present tim : ,is greater than any  thing  which   courld   be  presented  toi  capital.     The facts  that  the copper  mines of the United  States   produced  in 1906 $185,000,000 worth of the red  metal and that dividends to the amount  of $58,000,000 were paid are considerations worthy the attention of financiers.  Another fact which is attracting investors to copper  securities is that at  no time in the world's history have the  stoaks  of any   industry  advanced in  such proportion as have copper shares  within the past few years.      In   1900  100  shares of Calumet  and   Arizona  sold  for  $125.     In   1907  the  same  shares are wonh $14,000 to  $15,000.  That is given as an instance of the enhancement   of  the values   of copper  stocks as   the mines pass from the development to the productive stage.   It  is an old story, but  a true one, nevertheless, that  Calumet & Hecla shares  sold at   10 cents when the mines-were  said to be wildcats.    The quoted price  today, $960  per  share, has   been  an  advance worth waiting for.  Cheap copper is a thing of the past.  The progress of the electrical industry  as applied to manufacturing, transportation and illuminating has placed  it far ahead of all the useful metals,  and no man living can see far enough  ahead to venture a prediction as to  when the increase of consumption  shall cease.  ��  2 said the physician;  For that run-down  condition���  said  T^ooril  �����  PAUCE LIVERY STABLES  HURDOCK MclNTYRE, Prop.  35 Horses,   Full   Livery   Equipment,  Have taken   over   the   Lumber  Yard  and will carry  a  full  stock.  >HoteI  Best Wines Liquors and  Cigars j  1Close to C.

On the other hand, worry,  with or without work, is fatal, because  it uses up what the Doctors call the  " Lecithin," a phosphorized fat which  is the chief constituent of the brain and  nervous system���a waste which, if not  stayed in time, means complete nervous wreck. The evident moral is  "don't worry"���advice easy to give,  and in these days of stress and strain  practically impossible to take. The  alternative is : find some way of replacing the wasted Lecithin���the  phosphorized fat. This absolutely  essential element will be found in  its most perfect, palatable and assimilable form in  FERROL  an emulsion of Cod Liver Oil and  Phnsphorus(phosphorizedfat)together  with 1 ron, the recognized blood builder  ���making FERROL the ideal nutrient it,  claims to be.

Harry L. Rogers, of Butte, backed  by Montana arid New York capital,  recently took a five-year lease and an  option to buy the Republic mine in  that camp for $50,000, and it is reported the purchasers are furthering  a deal to take over and consolidate the  principal mines of the camp, including  the Quilp, Pearl Consolidated, Ben  Hur, Trade Dollar and Tom Thumb.  It is also stated that a 500-ton mill  will be constructed at a cost of about  $250,000, and that the expense of  treating the ores will be less than $3  per ton. It may therefore be possible  to mine and treat Republic ores at  from $4 to $5 per ton, which would  permit of a profit, without counting on  new developments.

The London Mining Tournal, tbe  oldest and most conservative publication of its kind in the world, recently  had the lollowing about the Dominion  Copper Co. and its properties :  Attention has recently been directed  in influential quarters to the prospects  of the Dominion Copper Co.���a concern which, as its name implies, is  working under the British flag in a  colony remarkable for its great mineral  wealth���and inquiries having been  made as to the position and character  of the undertaking, the following details, based on official statements, will  doubtless be of interest to our readers.  The kernel of the position of the  company, which is registered under the  laws of British Columbia, is its possession of properties containing large  deposits of low grade copper ore that  are being worked at an ample margin  of profit, and furthermore, the strength  of its financial position, the $750,000  remaining in the coffers of the company enabling the necessary provision  to be made for the progressive increase  and improvement of the plant which is  essential to cope with an expanding  scale of operations, without trenching  upon profits available for dividends.  The present and prospective growth  of the company's operations forms the  most striking feature of the concern.  Until recently the plant had a capacity  of 650 tons per day, and the net earnings for the month of November last  were $30,000 upon this basis. As a  resnlt of arrangements made for increasing the output, the blowing-in of  an additional furnace early in the present month will increase the capacity to  1,500 tons a day. Taking, however,  an average of 1,20c tons of ore treated  per diem, thus making a liberal allowance for the minor accidents which  are certain to occur in the conduct of  a big industrial enterprise, the company will produce between 750,000  and 800,000 lb. of copper per month,  at a cost carefully calculated at 8 cents  per lb. Upon this scale of increased  production, and assuming that no further diminution of reduction costs occurs, the net earnings will rise from  $30,000 per month on an average to  $75,000 or $80,000, sufficient to pay  14 percent, upon the pat value* of the  stock, and a substantially higher percentage upon the present price of the  shares. With copper reckoned at its  present price the return would be still  higher. Speaking of the recently  added furnace, M. M. Johnson, the  company's consulting engineer said:  "This new furnace will give us an additional capacity of from 700 to 900  tons per day, or a total capacity, with  the furnaces now running of frem  1,300 to 1,500 tons daily. The new  furnace will be mechanically fed, eliminating hand labor almost entirely.  As soon as practicable, the mechanical  feed will be applied to the furnaces  now in use also." The operations of  the company, however, are projected  upon a far broader scale than this, and  plans are being prepared and estimates  being made for the increase of the  plant to a capacity of 3,000 tons a  day. With a capacity of 3,000 tons of  ore.daily the Dominion Copper Company would be in a position to produce 25,000,000 lb. of copper per  annum. On 18-cent copper this production would give the company net  earnings of $2,500,000, or 50 per cent  on the par value of the stock���$5. per  share. These are big figures, and  point to the expansion of the concern  upon lines of great magnitude ; but it  is pointed out that they are carefully  calculated from data composed of the  present product of the company combined wifh the known ore content of  the mines and the designed capacity of  the additional plant. Already the  smelter .and mines are equipped with  the most modern plant, driven by  hydro-electrical power, which has resulted in reduced costs.  The properties of the company are  situated in British Columbia, Canada,  and cover an area of 360 acres. They  adjoin the property of the Granby  mines whose ore values are the same  as those of the Dominion Copper  Company, and who have a smelter  capacity at the present time of 2,700  tons per day, while their net earnings  were over $1,850,000.  The company's chief mines are the  Brooklyn, the Idaho and the Rawhide.  The Brooklyn has been the principal  producer to date, averaging 500 tons  of ore per day. There are calculated  to be 450,000 tons of ore in sight  above the 400-foot level. The average  values in this mine are returned at:  Copper, 1.43 percent.; gold, $1.32;  silver, 25 cents. The Idaho mine is  a most.important asset, and is confidently expected shortly to produce a  large tonnage daily. Cross-cuts show  ore bodies similar to those in the  Granby's mines, which - adjoin this  property, and from which 2,000 tons  per day are being mined. The Idaho  claim is 1,500 feet square.  Describing the situation at the chief  mines, Mr. Johnson recently said:  "The Rawhide mine is looking well.  We have pushed development work on  this property during the past few  months, and the .surface work 13 very  satisfactory.   We are getting a splen  did tonnage of ore there,'and the four  tunnels are opened up all in solid ore.  We expect to take about 4C0 tons a  day from the Rawhide when the new  furnace is blown in. We are getting  the most of our ore at present from the  Brooklyn. The Idaho and Stemwin-  der claims are being rapidly developed.  We are taking about .50 tons a day  from the Idaho, and the shipments  from this property will be gradually  increased. .  " Important developments have taken place at the Sunset, group, which  includes the Sunset, C.O.D., Florence  Fraction, and Crown Silver claims.  The ores from this ^roup run heavy in  iron, and have been* used only as a  flux, but during the past 60 days the  copper content in these ores has increased, and it is now running between  1.14 and 1.25 per cent, copper. There  are good indications that .these ores  will show increased copper values at  depth. At the Athelstan mine the  shaft is heing unwatered. This shaft  is down to a depth of 250 feet. We  will start cross-cutting: at the 200-foot  level in order to develop some good  backs of ore."  With the present figures of production and profit dividends are considered to be well within sight, and while  the management of the concern is officially silent on the subject, a well  known Boston paper reproduces a  statement to the effect that the director have decided, barring accidents,  to pay dividends commencing with the  second quarter of the current year, at  the rate of 10 per cent, on the par  value of the stock.

Last evening, at the   Lyric theatre,  the   Amsden   Musical   Comedy Company   presented   the  second   of  the  series   of a two  nights'  engagement,  entitled "The Mascot."     It certainly  was   musical  opera, and  gave  one a  stitch in the side all   the  while  with  laughing.     The costumes were good,  and some of the  specially  laughable  stunts were distinctly good.    The plot  cf the   opera   itself was,  of course,  slight;   but  considering   all the  fun  presented in the second and third acts  it did   not  matter whether there was  any plot at all so long as the principal  artistes were  on   the  stage.���Calgary  Herald.  : This company will play a two nights'  engagement at the opera house, Phoenix, Wednesday and Thursday, March  13th and 14th.
