Mclntcsh at  the Mother Lode, and the balance of  the office force, and that the Consolidated Co. would take over both the  B. C. Copper and Dominion Copper.  Asked regarding the story, J. E. McAllister, manager of the B. C. Copper,  stated to the Pioneer that it could be  authoritatively stated that the Consolidated had not arranged to swallow the  B. C. Copper, but that when the company could make money on its copper  output, it would resume operations.  Meantime, the small number of men  now employed had been reduced to  the minimum, one being let out of the  office, but Supt. Mcintosh had been  retained at the Mother Lode mine.  All told, the company now employs  about half a dozen men, including  watchmen, at its mine and smelter, to  keep expenses down while nothing is  doing.  Asked his opinion on the present  copper marKet, Mr. McAllister said  that if the present slight rise in the  metal continued and held its own, it  would be a very favorable sign, but  that if the metal slumped again, there  is no telling where it might go to.  However, he did not claim to be a  prophet in the matter, hoping at the  same time that it would not take till  June���when the presidential nominations occur���for the copper market to  steady itself.

It is indeed a long lane that has no  turn, as Francisco Cedio, charged with  the murder of Louise King at Niagara,  on the North Fork of Kettle river, on  November 19, 1906, must think as he  lies in the Nelson jail, awaiting his  trial.  Cedio in a fit of jealousy placed dynamite under the railway construction'  camp hotel, blew up the structure and  Louise King was killed outright, with  ten others injured. The murderer fled  to Uncle Sam's land, and for months |  nothing was heard further of the case.  But it seems that when W. J. Devitt,  formerly of Trail, was made chief of  provincial police at Nelson, he took  the matter up, and, with the assistance  of detectives, stayed with it till his man  was safely placed in custody at Nelson  last Monday night. The trial will take  place at the Greenwood assizes on  May 26th.  'The statement is made that the provincial government spent $8,000 in  bringing Cedio to book, and the general verdict is that the money was well  spent.  After escaping from the Boundary  in a load of hay and making his way to  Portland, Cedio thought he was safe.  But on detectives getting his trail,some  of his Italian compatriots made up a  purse there and he flitted, only to turn  up in Salt Lake City, Utah, where he  arrived two months ago. Three weeks  later he was arrested by a detective,  accompanied by Chief Devitt, in a saloon, and taken into custody. At first  he said he would come back to Canada  without trouble, but evidently he resisted in every way possible. However, extradition papers were finally  received and the prisoner was brought  to Nelson by Mr. Devitt A true bill  has already been found against Cedio,  which will probably make a preliminary  hearing unnecessary.  In the course of his search, Chief  Devitt travelled thousands of miles,  and twice previously to the final arrest,  the man was almost in the meshes of  the law. When once arrested he fought  being taken back for five weeks, but  without avail. Chief Devitt was assisted in his search by Detective Alex.  McDonald, of the Spokane police force,  who furnished the first clue. McDonald will probably receive a portion of  the $1,000 reward offered for Cedio's  apprehension.  Greenwood's be ard of trade is alive  and doing and proposes to advertise  the town and district.  Cascade sends out the report that J.  A. Bertois has undertaken to build a  suspension bridge over the Kettle river  at that point. It will be of one span  and steel cables will be used in its construction.  James Stuart has been appointed  customs collector at the sub-port of  Carson, to fill the vacancy caused by  the death of the late K. A. McAulay.  The appointment meets with general  satisfaction.  This week J. A. Brown begins the  publication of a weekly at Keremeos,  to be called the Keremeos Trumpet,  May its blasts be heard from this on,  not only in the Similkameen and Boundary, but wherever it will do the  country it is located in, the most good.  Thursday Jeff Davis, the well known  Grand Forks merchant, was thrown  out of a rig, when aoout starting for  the Little Bertha mine on the North  Fork. His wrist was broken and he  sustained serious injuries to his shoulder bone, which will lay him up for  some time.  Martin Burrell, who has done such  excellent service iii: the old country  this last winter, lecturing on fruit growing in British Columbia, has returned  to Grand Forks with Mrs. Burrell, having had an enjoyable and profitable  trip to the mother land, which he last  saw some 22 years ago.  The Liberals of Greenwood have  chosen the following delegates to  attend the nominating convention for  Yale-Cariboo, which will be at Vernon  April 14th: G. R. Naden, Dr. H. S.  Simmons, A. D. Hallett, Dr. R.Mathi-  son, E. H. Mortimer, C. C. Wilson,  Kenneth McKenzie, S. P. Dixon, H.  Bunting and J. D. Spence.  A number of changes have recently  been made in the\ customs a rrange-  ments of the Boundary district by the  Dominion government. Keremeos becomes a custom-; outport under the  survey of the Port of Greenwood, in  place of the outport .'of Chopaka; Carson, now a preventive station, becomes  an outport and warehousing :port under the survey of Grand Forks.  At the annual meeting of the Kettle  River Fish and Game Association, held  at Greenwood last week, the following  offiers were elected: President, E. O.  Boak; vice-president, Herbert Bunting,  secretaiy-treasurer, Duncan C. McRae;  executive committee, J. S. Birnie and  E. G. Warren, Greenwood; W. O.  Wright, Rock Creek; James Dale,  Carmi; C..L. Thomet, Midway. During  the year $182 was received in subscriptions.  King Rees, head accountant for P.  Burns & Co. at Greenwood, has the  deepest sympathy of many friends in  this district. Mrs. Rees who was suffering from tubercolosis, and went to  California last summer, died at Los  Angeles last Friday, leaving three small  children. Mr. Rees'sister, Mrs. Flood,  was with Mrs. Rees, and is bringing  the remains back to be interred at  Greenwood." Mr. Rees and family  have resided in the Boundary nearly  ten years���at Cascade, Phoenix and  Greenwood���and Mrs. Rees had a  host of warm friends throughout the  district.

With two nominating conventions  announced for this Dominion constituency of Yale-Cariboo, and a third  probably being arranged for, things  political in this section begin to have  more life than for some time past;  This is emphasized by the fact that the  provincial voters' lists, which are used  in Dominion elections, will close on  April i st���next Wednesday-���and  there is more or less of a hustle among  the fauhful of the several parties to get  names on the voters' list. No matter  when the election occurs, whether in  June or November, no further, names  will be added. Those interested  should, therefore, take notice, and see  personally that their names are properly  recorded in the official lists.  Both Liberals and Conservatives  are alive, and the Socialists will not be  far behind. Some delegates have already been elected to attend the  Liberal nominating convention, which  will be held at Vernon on April 14th,  while the Conservatives will hold a  similar convention at the same place  on April 23rd.  Who the nominees will be is, of.  course, not yet decided. While many  think Duncan Ross, the present sitting  member, will have a walk over in the  Liberal convention, others think he  cannot get the nomination again. For  the Conservatives, Martin Burrell, of  Grand Forks, is much talked of, but  whether he would stand again is not  known, either. As for the Socialists,  while they have no chance whatever of  winning in this contest, they will probably have a nominee, just the same.  In this connection, some past ..elec-  tfon statisticts:wilt be of interest";'  The last Dominion election in Yale-  Cariboo occurred November 22, 1904,  it being postponed a couple of weeks  from the ^general elections .all over  Canada���which went Liberal���thus  giving the local Liberal candidate that  much advantage. In that contest  there were 4,442 ballots cast, of which  48 were spoilt and 26 were rejected, I  leaving 4,348 ballots counted. In detail the results for each candidate, in  the eight provincial ridings in Yale-  Cariboo, were officially reported as  follows:  Wm. S. Macy returned Wednesday  from a trip to Spokane.  Harry James spent two or three  days in Nelson this week, on a business visit.  Charles Biesel, superintendent of the  Snowshoe mine, was visiting in Rossland this week.  John McMaster, proprietor of the  Hotel Balmoral, spent a day or two in  Nelson tin's week.  More  Than  100,00 Tons  Ore For March.  of  Burrell  Cons.

The Ladies' Aid of St. Andrews'  Presbyterian church will hold an apron  sale on Wednesday, the Sth of April,  which will continue on the following  day. The ladies are now working on the stock, and will have aprons  on sab for almost any purpose. They  wish those interested, however, to remember that orders will be taken in  advance for any kind or style of apron.  Any member of the Ladies' Aid can  be notified of what is wanted, and the  order will be executed as directed,  with satisfaction  guaranteed.  "No Mother to Guide Her."  Nothing but unstinted praise has  come from those who have attended a  performance of "No Mother to Guide  Her." Those who have seen it will  surely want to see it again, and those  who have not, will undoubtedly avail  themselves of the opportunity next  Thursday, April 2nd, at the opera  house. They will have a chance to  witness a clever comedy drama, interpreted by an unusually strong company, headed by Miss Jeanette Carew.  Miss Carew is one of the coming comediennes and her personal magnetism  instantly wins het audiences. 'The  press last season could not say enough  in praise of Miss Carew's work. She  is admirably fitted for the part of  "Bunco" in "No Mother to Guide  Her."  A Year   Without   a Break.  For more than a year the B. C.  Telephone Co. has not had a break on  its long distance lines in the Boundary���with the exception of twice,  when loggers felled trees across the  wires. 'The result was obtained by  spending many thousands of dollars,  from Cascade to Midway, in rebuilding most permanently and cutting out  the lines of the company. George C.  Hodge; the district superintendent for  the company, predicted this a year ago,  and it was fulfilled. Mr. Hodge was  here from Nelson this week, on a flying trip before proceeding to the coast,  where he will have charge of a lot of  new work for the company for several  months.

Totals... 1850 2011 487 4348  A study of the above table shows  that Mr. Ross had but 161 majority  out of the total of 4,348 votes counted  ���which means that had 81 voters  changed from the Liberal to Conservative ranks, Mr. Ross would never have  gone to Ottawa from this constituency.  In spite of the closeness of the totals,  Mr. Ross had a majority in six of the  eight ridings, the only ones giving a  majority to Mr. Burrell being Grand  Forks and Lillooet. The Socialists  cast a little over one-tenth of the entire vote.  Coming now to the two Boundary  ridings and studying results, we find  the following was the result of November 22, 1904:  GREENWOOD  Burrell  Cons.

O. B. Smith, Jr., accompanied by  Mrs. Smith and their little daughter,  left Thursday for a trip to Seattle, and  other coast points.  Wm. Sampson and family started  for Hedley on Monday, where Mr.  Sampson has accepted a position at  the Nickel Plate mine.  John A. Morrin went over to Oro-  ville Tuesday, intending logo possibly to Keremeos and the Lake Okanagan country before he returns.  Charles D. Hunter and W. G  Fraser returned early this week from a  visit to Halcyon Hot Springs, Mr.  Hunter also visiting Rossland.  J. E. McAllister, manager of the  British Columbia Copper Co., has  been spending several days on his  ranch at Kelowna, on Lake Okanagan.  Edgar W. Fox, accountant at the  Snowshoe mine, left for Hillyard, near  Spokane, Wednesday, accompanying  Mrs. Fox, their two weeks' old son  and nurse.  A. E. Bailey, of San Fransisco, representing the Hartford Fire Insurance  Co., was here Wednesday, looking over  risks with the company's local agent,  D. J. Matheson.  W. C. Thomas, manager of the Dominion Copper Co., visited Nelson  this week, and being interviewed there,  did not know yet when his company  would resume mining and smelting.  Chas. H. Towns and Mrs. Ada L.  Bernard, of Greenwood, were married  by Rev. Henry Steele at Holy Trinity  church, Grand Forks, last Tuesday,  and left for Spokane on a wedding trip.  Rev. F. W. Auvache, of Grand  Forks, was here Tuesday, and went  down to the 400-level of the Granby  mines���his first visit to those properties. His son Fred, who has been  employed in the Pioneer office for a  tinie past, went down to Grand Forks  Wednesday.  John L. Parker, who several years  ago was superintendent of the Dominion Copper Co's mines here, and later  with the North Star mine, East Kootenay, and then manager of the Brown-  Alaska Co's mines near Ketchikan,  Alaska, is now in charge of operations  at the Indian Chief mine, Sidney Inlet, west coast of Vancouver Island,  where he has started a vigorous development policy.  The Pioneer has no apologies to  make to its readers for printing for a  month past the news of breaking all  former records for ore shipping in seven days at the Granby mines. If our  wide circle of readers,' from ocean to  ocean, think it is becoming monotonous, let them apply to the Granby  Co. to stop shipping so much ore.  'This paper is here merely to record  the facts, as nearly as they can be ascertained.  And so, this week we note another  record fractured into little pieces, as  the these mines, as the Granby Go.  sent out no less than 27,28810ns of  ore in seven days, or an average of  3,755 toris for each period of 24 hours  in the week. This is exactly 1,900  tons more than for the previous week,  when the output for these mines was  29,388 tonsof copper gold ore.  Another interesting feature in connection with these large ore shipping  records, is that more than 100,000 tons  of ore will have been sent out in the  month of March���that much is absolutely certain. This will be a new record for a single month, and is expected  to run some 25,000 ttms more than in  February and about 30,000 tons more  than for the month of January last.  It is said that the C. P. R., which  was understood to have been behind  the Kettle Valley lines, will take over  those properties on April 1st.  John Mclnnis, M. L. A., returned  from the coast late last week,, and  Tuesday evening held a meeting at the  opera house, of which almost no notice was given;to the- public.. 1 He gave,  an account of his stewardship to those  that were present, but many more  would have attended'had they known  of it.  O. 0. O. INAUGURAL BALL.  Extensive Preparations Helot Made For Wednesday.  From all indications, the inaugural  ball of the Order of Owls, to be given  April 1st, will be one of the greatest  yet held in connection with a secret  order in Phoenix, and extra efforts are  being made by the several committees  in charge to insure success. The music will be a special feature, under the  direction of Harry James, with four or  five pieces.  Miners' Union hall will be brilliantly  illuminated, and with the aid of special  devices will also be bathed in the soft  glow of different colored rays, emanating from two powerful lanterns. Those  unable or who do not wish to enjoy  themselves on the polished floor, will  find the balcony open, and visiting  Owls are expected from Colville, Grand  Forks, Nelson and Greenwood.  Since its recent inauguration Phoenix  Nest No. 168 has been growing fast,  and we understand the meeting night  will be changed from Sunday to Thursday in each week.

Although no official announcement  - has come from 'Ottawa to' that' effect,  'it'll well settled,that, * just as��� soon as  the1. Liberalr government - can -decide  when it the strategic time for an election; an appeal to  the people of the  Dominion will be made;���that is, when  the Grits, think they have  the  best  chance for carrying doubtful constituencies,' among   which they  doubtless  recognize one as being Yale-Cariboo.  -Next month both the  Liberals  and  Conservatives   of  Yale - Cariboo  will  hold-nominating conventions at  Vernon; to select standard bearers for the  forthcoming campaign, and  possibly  the Socialists will be in  the field,  as  they were at the last Dominion election.  The fight however will be between the  Gnts'aii'd .Tories. '  '"WKb "the candidates will be is yet  to be officially settled, but Duncan  Ross; of Greenwood, the present member at Ottawa, is credited with being  after-the nomination again from the  Liberals,'and-if the Conservatives can  make a. better choice than Martin  Burrell of Grand Forks, the name has  yetto be mentioned. If'it results this  way at the conventions, we will have  the bl_ candidates pitted against each  other.  What Duncan Ross has done to  deserve re-election does not appear to  the average thinking man. He has,  to be sure, voted steadily with the  "Solid Seven" Liberals from this pro- ���  vince, and has distributed a' little pat-j  Canada's mineral production for  1907 reached $86,183,000, or over  eight times that of r��86, which was  $j 0,221,000.  This is shown in a preliminary report just issued at Ottawa. The metallic output reached a value of $42,-  434,000, the non-metallic $31,217,000;  cement, slate and other structural  material $12,000,000. The output of  coal reached 10,500,000 tons and a  value of over $24,500,000.  The copper production reached 57,-  380,000 pounds, and a value of. $11,-  478,000, British Columbia supplying  72% of the total output and Ontario  second with 19%. British Columbia,  in fact, led in the total output of all  minerals, although its production of  gold last year, shows a falling off compared with other years.  In this connection the report says:  "The total gold output in  1907 was  $8,270,000.    Four years ago gold was  relatively the  most valuable   mineral  product in Canada, but in 1967 it' has  fallen  to  fifth   place.    A   continued  shrinkage has taken place in the output  of the Yukon territory from $22,275,-  000 in 1900 to.about $3,150,000 in  1907.    The  effect of this  shrinkage  was to some  extent   lessened- by the  eontinued increase from   British Columbia, but in 1907 this province also  shows a falling off both in placer and  lode output, a decrease of over 13 per  cent.    Less  than half as much gold  was obtained from the Yukon in 1907  as in 1906.    Of the total'gold output  in'1907, about 47% was obtained from  placer and hydraulic working and 53%  from sulphuret and quartz ores."  the Copper Handbook, has just been  issued by the author, Horace J. Stevens  of Houghton, Michigan. The book  has 1228 pages, octavo, being materially larger than before. The author  appoligizes for his inability to revise  the book throughout, explaining that  fire, sickness, and loss of five months'  time preventing, but the now volume  contains about 180,000 words of new  matter, equal in length to three ordinary works of fiction, in addition to  the matter remaining unchanged from  the preceding issue.  The   new   edition   of  the  Copper  Handbook contains   25   chapters;   an  increase  of nine,   treating of copper  under the   the  headings  of History,  Geology, Chemistry, Mineralogy, Mining,    Milling,   Concentrating,   Hydro-  metallurgy,   Pyrometallurgy,    Electrometallurgy,    Alloys,   Brands,- Grades,  Uses, Substitutes, Terminology, Geography,    Copper    Deposits,    Copper  Mines and  Statistics.    The treatment  given the  subject  in   1228   pages  is  encyclopaedic in scope but the logical  and orderly arrangement of the great  mass of facts presented, coupled  with  a  table of   contents,  full  index   and  alphabetical arrangement  of districts,  countries,    mines, minerals and  glossary, render  it  possible  to  ascertain  any given fact  with almost as   much  ease as word is found in a dictionary.  This  is  a  point   of much  value  to  readers that has   been  overlooked  in  many   otherwise   excellent   works  of  reference. . :  The Copper Handbook is  not intended to replace other works for the  use   of  technical   men,   but it does  supplement all other technical  works  on   copper,    while. for   the   average  reader, its hundreds of pages devoted  to the scientific and technical features  of the subject will be found  to  cover  almost every point of interest.    The  language is plain throughout, and the  layman,   whether  miner   or  investor,  will find the clear and  easily   understandable exposition of scientific facts  a great  aid,   as   the  highly  technical  language used in   many of the  best  scientific works is a serious stumbling  block   in  the path  of the  man  not  technically, who is forced to read such  books with a dictionary at his elbow.  In whatever light the Copper Handbook is viewed, whether in   describing  the   thousands   of   different  r      ----    _ ..^..w_o   v.   .......w���~  1   of mining, milling, smelting and refi-  ing, or in the forty pages of statistics  covering the copper industry of the  globe in its various commercial and  financial aspects, the book must stand  as a monument of patience and labor,  it being the unaided work of a single  man.  The book willl   be found  of deep  interest and practical   value to   every  man interested in the subject of copper  from whatever standpoint, whether he  be engaged in the production or use of  the metal, or is an investor in  copper  shares.   The descriptions of the mines  are written without fear or favor,   and  several   hundred   mining   companies,  some   very   prominent,   are  handled  without gloves, and in a  manner  that  would justify no end of libel suits were  the author not sure of his   facts.    In  view of the exceedingly plain speaking  in this book it seems rather surprising  that in the seven years of its   publication not one libel suit has been brought  into  court,   though many have   been  threatened,    in (act, the author of the!  Copper   Handbook   has   turned   the I  tables on some of his critics by placing  a  few  of them  in  prison,  for  their  frauds upon the investing public.  The price of the Copper Handbook  is five dollars, and the selling  plan  is  absolutely unique in the   book trade.  For the five  years   past  Mr.   Stevens  has sent his book, all charges prepaid  without a pennv payment in advance^  to  any  person,   in   any  part  of  jhe  world, on one week's approval; subject  to return if unsatisfactory.    It speaks  well for the book that only about one  copy in thirty has been  returned, and  well for human nature that only about  one man in thirty has failed to pay for  it.    On these  unusual  terms anyone  interested in copper can well afford to  send to Mr. Stevens for a copy of the  new edition of the Cop per Handbook.  THER   Fl.VBST   f}C\UTY   IX.

In  most places additions of this kind to  the population are welcomed, but perhaps it is different in Greenwood or in  the office of our esteemed contemporary.' Or maybe the editor has had so  much experience along the line indicated that he can write feelingly on  the subject.  Beginning tomonow the Great Northern discontinues its Sunday passenger trains to and from points north of  Spokane, which in British Columbia  means to Nelson, Rossland, Grand  Forks and Phoenix. It appears that  the railway company can now handle  in six days the passenger business offered in seven days, and so will economize to that extent. Onr may be sure  it would not be done in order to observe the Sabbath���-s most railways  ate not built that way.  This change will be felt at all points  where   the   Great   Northern   touches,  and the patrons of the   road   generally  will not see the change with very much  satisfaction, especially those   who used  the line for Sunday  outings.    In   British Columbia the Sunday mail service  will also be missed, and no mail whatever will be   received  at any   point in  the Boundary on   that   day, as   the C.  P. R. has never run  Sunday   trains to  this   district.    Even  in   the  old stage  days of ten years ago, there was a mail  service seven days in the week.  '4$ j'that of Cranbrook. In the auniver-  \ sary number, "Old Man" Simpson published a wealth of history of his town  that is exceedingly interesting. The  paper is perhaps the best, cleanest and  most up to-date exponent of weekly  journalism in British Columbia, and  the citizens of Cranbrook show their  wisdom in supporting it so generously.  This is not taffy, either, but tribute,  honestly earned.  The small sum of two bits (25c) per  month takes the Phoenix Pioneer to  in v postoffice on earth .  HIIIMMM MM',  PLAIN TALK FROM THE DOCTOR  From the chorus of objections that  is already going up from points along  the line affected, we have an idea that  the dropping of the Sunday trains by  the Great Northern wili not be a permanent arrangement, but that, sooner  or later, the old seven-day service will  be put on again. Whether the mail  carrying contract permits the railway  to run seven, six, five or four days a  week, we do not know, but it would  be interesting to find out this point.  According to the laws of this province, the open season for trout began  last Wednesday, although the Dominion act says that the close season  for trout closes March 15th. However,  from this on will be the open season  for fish stories, and readers of the Pioneer should remember that this paper  will be glad to secure such stories when  well authenticated. For its size, probably no town in the province has more  enthusiastic fishermen than Phoenix,  and this, notwithstanding the fact that  every trip of this kind means travelling  from eight to 50 miles to the haunts of  the finny tribe. It may be said, also,  that in point of success���with the  goods as evidence���Phoenicians are  well to the fore when it comes to enticing members of the finny tribe.  ��it  Last week the Cranbrook Herald  published a profusely illustrated sixteen page issue, the occasion being the  tenth anniversary of the founding of  that excellent weekly. F. E. Simpson,  the editor, was one of the first business men in Cranbrook, so that the  history  of   the Cranbrook   Herald   is  A prominent physician, famous for  his success in the treatment of kidney and bladder troubles, stated that  to the following prescription is due a  great deal of his Buccess:  One  ounce fluid extract dandelion ;  One ounce compound aalatone ;  Four   ounces   compound   syrup  earsaparilla.  Mix and take a teaspoonful after  meals   and   at    bedtime,    drinking  plenty of water.  This mixture will, he says, positively cure any diseases arising from  weak, clogged or inactive kidneys,  and will assist these organs to  cleanse the blood of the poisonous  waste matter and acids, which if  allowed to remain, cause lumbago,  lame back, rheumatism and sciatica,  and at the same time will r -store the  kidneys to healthy normal action.  Tho ingredients, which are purely  vegetable and entirely harmless, can  be procured from any good druggist  and mixed at home at very little cost.  This advise will undoubtedly be  much appreciated by many readerr.  It is likely that a copper smelter will  be erected in Kamloops.  The average output of the Rossland  mines is 6,000 tons a week.  The hope of the Slocan is pinned to  the new zinc plant at Nelson.  H. M. Beach and ten miners are  traveling 370 miles on snowshoes between Port Essington and Manson  creek.  By June or July a stamp mill will be  running at the Golden Zone mine near  Hedley.  Good placer ground is reported to  have been found on the West Coast of  Vancouver Island.  It is reported that the low-grade  ores of Cobalt will be smelted in  British Columbia.  The Vancouver-Nmaimo Coal Min-  ��� rig Co. have encountered a seam of  cnal 15 feet thick on their property  near Nanaimo.  Work will shortly be pushed on the  railway line necessary to connect the  June group of mines with the southeast arm of Quatsino Sound, west coast  of Vancouver Island.  W. Thomas Newman, manager of  the Commadore mine on Texada Island, is of the opinion that some of  the biggest mines of the Province will  be developed on the island.  Development on the new rich strike  of gold ore on the lower levels of the  Le Roi in bringing gratifying results,  and will have a beneficial effect on the  value of the Le Roi shipments.  Boston capitalists have leased three  miles of the Fraser at Lillooet and ex-.  pect to build a $100,000 dredge for  the purpose of scooping out the yellow  stuff from the bottom of the river.  It is asserted that copper ore running from $60 to $100 per ton, is  being taken out of the Ikeda mines, at  the rate of 20 tons a day, which will be  increased to 50 tons daily when the  new machinery plant is installed. The  concern is Japanese from stem to  stern," being located on the coast.  One of the richest cars of copper  matte shipped from British Columbia  was sent from the Consolidated Mining and Smelting company's smelter at  Trail last week, to the refinery at Ta-  coma. It was worth a little more than  $32,000, and contained 41 per cent  copper, 35 ounces of silver and 45  ounces of gold to the ton. The company is shipping about fifteen cars of  matte a month.
