On the other hand, there  was a falling off of 135,000 tons  from the Dominion Copper company's  mines (which were closed during the  greater pan of the year), and of 85,000  tons from the Snowshoe mine, which  is under lease to the Consolidated  Mining & Smelting company of Canada,  Limited, and was also inoperative for  months.  - ��� The Boundary district is remarkable  in that ore of a very low grade is mined  and smelted at a profit, even with  the price of copper as low as it has  been for some time past. : The official  statement of the average metal contents of the output for the year 1908  has not yet been made public, but for  the year 1907, according to the annual  report of the Minister of Mines for  British Columbia, the average assay of  c pper recovered, was r.34 per cent,  and the average gold and silver values  were also extremely low.

R, W.  Brock, director of the Geological Survey of Canada, describes the rock as  principally the old green volcanic  t;reccia, with bands of diorite. The  material mined consists of magnetite,  chalcopyrite, pyrite, specularite, pyrrho-  tite, calcite, quartz, garnets, epidote.  and hornblende, together with less  highly altered country rock.  Results of operations for the calender  year 1908 are  not available, but the  figures for the company's  fiscal year,  ended June 30,   1908,  may be taken  as approximately what may be generally looked for, the average grade of the  immense quantities  of ore occurring  here showing but little variation Irom  year to year.    From  the information  made public relative to the company's  operations for its last fiscal year,  it is  gathered that the mines shipped to the  smelter during that  period a  total of  958,433 tonsof ore (as compared with  64.4,549 tons the year immediately pre-  ceeding), and the average extraction  per ton of ore was:    Copper, 23.42  lb.;   silver,   0.2S65   oz.;   and  gold,  0.0503 oz.    This average was 1 lb. less  of copper and 10 to   12  cents less in  gold and silver than for the year ended  June 30, 1907,    The cost per pound  of copper produced after deducting the  gold and siver values, was $0.1024 (a  fraction   over   10   cents),   as  against  $0.1014 the year before.  The company's mines are equipped  for, and are eq'ial to, a daily production of about 5000 tons of ore, but as  the capacity of its smelting works is  but 3000 ton��, the larger tonnage is  not produced. The blast furnaces, of  which there are eight, are being enlarged, with the object of increasing  the treatment capacity of the smelter  to 4000 tons per diem.  the year,  the  tbtajl expenditure was  taken from May r,',so all expense of  opening up the mines after five months'  idleness was included, although   pro  duction   of smelted   me'als   was   not  commen.-ed until June   1.    The cost  per ton of ore handled, including all  charges from ore in'place to sale of the  continued metals-i-rhining and   smelting costs,  freight*'.all expenditure tor  equipment, betterments, and all  other  items  constituting'i.harges,  down   to  sales commissions  rtt  eastern  United  Stales points for disposal of metal products���was $2.6322.    The cost of producing,   refining,   and  marketing   per  pound of fine coppfr,  nfier crediting  expenditure with gold and   silver contents of ore, which,jas will be seen are  .null,     was    ��9 99,,9-    cents.      The  Canada   Department  of   Mine's   Report   on    Mining  and    Metallurgical  Industries of Canada,   1907-8,  gives  an average analysis of 90,000 tons of  this   company's   ore,  the  marketable  metal contents of which were;   Copper,  r.30 per cent.;  silver,  0.2  oz.;  and  gold   o 05  oz.   pery ton..    The   net  profits from operations during the six  months the smelter was  running were  $238,413.41.    Deducting the expend'  ture incurred in May in re-opening the  mines and smelter;($37,927.67),  the  net profit from   seven  months'   operations was $200,483.74.    From   this,  though there has to'be deducted  the  sum of $106,793.83,',being decrease in  market value of metals unsettled  for  November 30, 1907 j expenditure during five months' suspension of operations, and items in.suspense.    The ad  dition   to  the  balance  previously  at  credit of profit and loss account was,  therefore, $93,689.94, which  brought  the balance carried forward to the current year up  to .$369,731.23.    This  [company has an authorized capital of  r$jiOOQiPoo of which'$2,515,000  has  been issued.    Its liabilities other than  to its shareholders on capital account  totalled $157 895 atVthe close of its  last fiscal year,  while;its liquid assets  (i.e., other than mine and smelter properties) amounted to $365,311.    These  realizable assets  were, chiefly ^smelter  Brakeman Harroil is Hero  Stopping Ore Train  Lewis J. Stalls, engineer on one  of the dinky engines at the No. 2  tunnel of the Granby amines, had a  narrow escape from death about mid  night Thursday. He had turned ofi  the steam, but not completly, and  when near the front of the locomotive  it started. He made a spring for the  cab and while hanging on the window  was crushed when passing some timbering in the tunnel, falling to the side  of the trade. He was taken to the  hospital and on examination his pelvis  was found fractured. It will probably  be some months before Mr. Stalls will  be able to be around again.  Edward  Harroil, a brakeman, was  the hero of a daring feat,   which  not  only saved   the destruction of much  property, but   probably some lives as  well.    The dinky engine,  from which  Mr. Stalls had fallen, was headed out of  tlie tunnel Hauling several cars of ore,  and was gradually gaining momentum'.  Mr. Harroil climbed on the rear  car  and crept through Space barely large  "enough for his body between  the  top  of the ore and the roof of the  tunnel,  getting  to the engine   in   front   and  stopping the train while'in the tunnel.  Had the train been let run  wild without its bell ringing,.livoB���would"hat."  been   in   danger,   and   with   gaining  speed until the ere bins were reached  much damage to property would have  resulted.  (Iiy Ihe Publicity Committee)  The simultaneous evangelistic campaign, which  is   covering   the entire  Kootenay and    Boundary   country,  reached this end of the district on  Wednesday of this week, and meetings  have been commenced at all the important points in the Boundary. ;  The first meeting in Pheonix opened promptly at 8 o'clock / with a good  attendance.      Prof.   J.  J. ..Lowe,   of  Philadelphia, is in.charge of the music  and Rev. H. A. Berlis, of Toronto) is  the speaker.   Both men 0re,especially  adapted to their particular part  ofthe  work, as was demonstrated  before the  close of the meeting.    Prof  Lowe has j  a manner that is all and quite uresis!-  able, for he has scarcely faced the audience until everyone felt   at  ease   and  ready to respond when asked  to sing.  The selections are mostly new   to  the  people of Pheonix, but  some  quickly  became familiar under   Prof.   Lowe's  instruction.  Rev. Mr. Berlis took his text from  II Peter, 3.11, What manner of persons ought ye to be?" He spoke more  particularly to the Christians and  made the text a personal message to  everyone present, asking them to read  it with "I" instead of "ye," and then  ask "What manner of ought I to be to  -make: this revival a snr-r-eso?

TIME  INSPECTOR  1$    'W_______M  BRITISH COLUMBIA COPPER   COMPANY  The British Columbia Copper company,  Limited, the annual  report of  which for its  last fiscal year,  ended  November 30, 1908,  was lately  published, appears to have reached a low  record mark  in  connection  with  the  cost per ton of ore mined, and product  marketed.   Economic conditions at the  close ofthe fiscal year ended November  30, 1907, were such that it  was de  cided to suspend operations for a time;  consequently there was no production  of ore at the company's mines nor   reduction at its smelter during several  months.    On   May  4,   1908,   minim;  work was resumed, and on the 31st of  the same month one furnace was blown  in  at   the smelter,   followed   by   the  two   others   next   day.      Production  thencefoiward to December   1,   1908,  consisted of 312,471 tons of ore, which,  together with 4829 tons of custom ore,  3856 tons of converter slag,   and   281  tons of custom copper matte, was put  through the three blast furnaces.    The  metals tecovered were :    Fine copper,  5��76'7��3S5 jb-i gold,  13,597  ��z.; and  DOMINION  COPPER   COMPANY  In sharp contrast   to   that   of   the  British Columbia Copper Company   is  the position of the   Dominion Copper  Company, limited, which has been for  years operating in the same district as  the former.   The Dominion Company  is in liquidation,   and  representees of  the bondholders have applied   to  the  supreme  court  of   British   Colnmbia  for foreclosure and for the  sale of the  mining and smelting props-rty.   Meanwhile a  reorganization   committee  in  New York has published a brief state'  ment of the Iiabilites  of the  company  and a plan of reorganization it has formulated.      The former shows that the  company has the following   liabilities:  Principal of outstanding bonds $800,-  000; interest on same for seven months  to Jan. 31, 1908,   $28,000;   liens  for  workmen's wages, and other debts, approximately    $100,000;    outstanding  share    capital,   .500,000;   shares   par  value $10 each $5,000,000;   total $5,-  928,000.    Then there will be charges  in  connection   with   the   liquidation,  trustees and liquidators fees, and legal  and other expenses.    The plan of reorganization   is:    The   committee  to  purchase the  property  at  foreclosure  sale and transfer it to the New Dominion Copper Company, which will issue  the following   securities:  $500,000 of  six per cent,   ten-year income bonds  convertible   into  stock at  par, $5 per  share;    250,000   shares   of common  stock of a par value of $5   per   share.  Present   bondholders   will   take   new  stock for their bonds on   the   basis   of  210  shares   for   each   $1,000   bond.  This will absorb  110,000   of  the  par  stock.    Creditors will  receive  20,000  shares of new stock at  the   proportion  of 20 shares for each   $100.      Present  stockholders, upon  surrendering  their  old stock and subscribing   at   par  for  the new bonds on a basis of $100   of  bonds for $100 of old  stock,   will   receive    in addition   to  the bonds subscribed for, ten shares  new  stock   for  each 100 shares of old stock, this calling for  50,000   shares.    Underwriters  will   receive    12,000   shares   of new  stock, this making up balance  of total  issue.    The new bonds are to be paid  for in four monthly  instalments  of 25  per cent. each.    It is stated  that  the  cash requirements of   the   plan   have  been underwritten, and it is announced  by the committee that,  having  regard  to the large amount of additional cap  ital to be raised to develop the mining  properties and to  construct   a   proper  smelter,   and   to   the   low   grade  of  the    ore    and    consequent    narrow  margin   of   profit   under    the   most  advantageous   conditions  of management, it may be considered   advisable  to sell the property rather than to continue to operate  it; accordingly  authority is asked for such  sale,   should it  be deemed in the best interests of the  security holders.  After publication   of the   foregoing  plan of reorganization a meeting of the  ExC-ralM to Da-vllle  The Phoenix baseball team have arranged for an excursion train to I )an  ville Wash., over the Great Northern  railway for Sunday (tomorrow), the  occasion of a match between the ball  tossers of these two cities. The special  train will leave Phoenix at 10 a.m. and  returning will leave Danville at 7 p.m.  Those wishing to visit friends in Grand  Forks will have seven hours in that  city. The baseball'match at Danville  is called for a p.m.  dissenting stock and bond holders  'were held in New York. It claimed  that this   meeting  reprented   300,000  of the 500,000   shares   of   stock   and  IHttdjucts .on_.ha!__-ttr��&*^  finery.  The chairman asserted  that  the  plan  of reorganization   to   which   they   had  been asked to   suscribe  was   appoved  by only a small clique who might profit  by it, and he and  other  speakers   ex  pressed the   opinion   that   the   company's property is more valuable  than  the     reorganization   committee    had  made it out to be.    The  sentiment of  the meeting was  unanimous   that   immediate steps should   be taken to op  pose the plan of reorganization   under  criticism, and a   committee   of   seven  was appointed to do _so.     A   Boston  member of this committee  stated that  he knew one party able and willing to  contribute  $400,000   to  a  syndicate  for the   purpose   of   bidding   in   the  property if necessary at the foreclosure  sale, and the New  York   members   of  the protective committee say they will  have no   difficulty   in   supplying   the  balance of the   money  necessary,   so  that if a sale of   the   property   occurs  the board and   the  shareholders  ass-  ciated with them will be protected.  At the present stage   the comment  to be made here will be brief.    There  need not be any doubt as to the value  and producing   capabilities of some of  the   old   company's   property.      The  Rawrpde    mine,   at   Pheonix,   13. C,  particularly, is regarded as a  property  that,   under   management  conditions  similiar to those obtaining with   other  large   companies     operating   in   the  Boundary district, should   be a source  of profit.     It has large   ore   bodies   of  the average grade   (which admittedly,  is low), characteristic of the  large copper mines of  this   district.      But the  Dominion Company   has been operat  ing for some  time   without   having   a  resident    metallurgist    in   charge   of  smelting operations, and   in   this   respect it has been alone   among   copper  smelting companies of British   Columbia.    True, it has had the   services of  M. M.   Johnson, of Salt   Lake   City,  Utah,   in    the   capacity   of   consulting engineer,   but   his   visits   to   the  mines and smelting   works were infrequent. It would be interesting to have  Mr. Johnson's comment   upon the reorganization committee's suggestion of  the necessity for constructing a 'proper  smelter,' for much   money   was   spent  at the company's smelter at  Boundary  Falls during Mr. Johnson's   regime as  consulting engineer.  Forced Shutdown for B.C.  Copper Company-  Through the continuanceof the strike  of coal miners in eastern British Columbia, and. the consequent shortage  in coke the British Columbia Copper  company has been forced to suspend  opeiations. The Mother Lode mine  closed on Wednesday, and some 225  men were thrown out of employment,  only a small force being retained for  development work. The smelter was  still runningyesterday, but as the reserve fuel supply has now disappeared,  the furnaces will probably be blown  out today. .,/ .  There has been practically no change  in the strike situation since lust week  and a settlement seems ns far off .is  ever. And even if the strike was settltd  t would probably be a month befoie  coke would reach the smelter, so 111  (ireenwood,furnaces will probablj Imc  a six weeks' rest at least.  ft. Smtlttr's Fumes-  evening's service promises to be a spec  ially interesting one, taking the form of  an illustrated talk by Prof. Lowe.  There will be a number of beautiful  pictures thrown on the canvas, and a  few of the good old hymns illustrated  with lantern views. This will be entirely free, as all the meetings are. A  free-will offering will be taken each  evening to defray the expenses of the  local committee.  -Tomorrow (Sunday) at 2.30 p.m.  the Sunday schools will meet as usual  in their own churches, and at 3.30 a  special young peoples' service will be  conducted by the evangelists in the  opera house. There will he a mass  meeting in the evening at 7.30 also,  the regular church services being withdrawn.  On Tuesday next in the Presbyterian  church at 3 p.m. Mr. Berlis will conduct a class for prayer and bible study,  ind Pnjf. Lowe will meet the school  children in the Methodist church at 4  o'clock.  The campaign has proved to be a  great blessing and moral uplift in other  places and promises to be no less so  in the towns where it commenced  this week.  Stage Line Change* Hands  The Pheonix-Greenwood stage,  which for the past two years has been  run by D. L. McElroy. changed hands  on Saturday, Mr. McElroy selling the  business and stage equipment to Archie Gillis and Hugh Lang of Greenwood. Mr. Lang took charge on  Sunday and will reside in Pheonix and  will no doubt meet with the success of  hif predecesser. While conducting  the stage Mr. McElroy's genial manner won popularity in Pheonix and  Greenwood as well as with the commercial men and his departure is regretted. He lef for the coaft Thursday.  A rather interesting appeal came up  in Vancouver this week in the case < f  Smith vs. Consolidated Mining and  Smelting company. The plaintiff Smith  claims that his orchard near Ti ail was  damaged by fumes from" the compan) .  smelter to the extent of some thousands  of dollars. The fumes were blown  down on the orchard one day in June?  when the fruit was young arid tender,  and destroyed it all besides injuring  the trees.    He was not satisfied  with  by the  appealed. H. A.  MacNeill,r K.C., and Mr. Hamilton of  Rossland are appearing for theapellant,  and /. A. McDonald, K.C., for the-  respondent company. ������-���- <  reached the mark  was shown  by'the  substantial increase of Thursday night's  the    compensation    granted  meeting, both in attendance and in-  County Court and  terest.    Already personal work is bear-   "  ing fruit and  bright prospects are in  view for the success of. the.campaign.  Thursday night's  topic was "Faith."  Mr. Berlis took the character of Barnabas and holding it before the people  showed how they, too, might   become  "good men, full of the Holy Spirit of  faith," and then, as in   the. experience  of Barnabas, many would be turned to  the Lord.    "The influence of a good  man counts for  something   in  a community."    At the close df the address  Prof.   Lowe sang'a solo with   much  feeling, the audience joining in one of  ihe papular hymns, "Don't stop praying,"  which  gave  expression  to   the  generalfeeiing ofthe meeting.^"    ur  The   meetings  will   m   continue  every  evening,  commencing  at eight  o'cIock sharp,   and   Saturday  (today)  COURT ORDERS SALE   "  OF DOMINION COPPER  Property Will Be Sold in Vancouver May 28  The supreme court of  British   Col  umbia has decreed that the properties  of the Dominion Copper  company ;at  Phoenix and Boundary Falls will take  iplace on May 28th at 11 a. no, i  Ihdmas Shirley, the sale being held  in the Board of Trade rooms, Molsons  bank building, Vancouver.  The reorganizaion committee will  receive no bonds or stock under its  plan of reorganization after May tst.  A tot." 1 of $518,000 out of $800,000  bonds have been deposited with the  committee.  Attended Greenwood A(-ffome  A score or more of members of the  local Oddfellow and Rebekah lodges  attended an at-home given by Greenwood Oddfellows in that city Thursday  evening. They report an enjoyable  time. Among those who went were .-  Mr. and 'Mrs. ]. E. W. Thompson,  Mr. and Mrs. and the Misses Pickard,  Mr. and Mrs. F. J. McDougall, Mr.  and Mrs. John Tait, Misses D. McKenzie, T. Luskie, E. Luskie, and M.  Hart, and P. Pinker, W. Ross, D.  Deane, R. Horrell, S. E. VanBuskirk,  W. Murray, W. Hyslop, J. Noles, J.  Doer, S. Leckie���also J. D.   McLean.  On a Trip East  Philip James is in the city from  Phoenix, where he has been for the  past two years working on the War  Eagle, one of the properties of the  Amalgamated Co. whicb is now owned  by the Consolidated Co. The War  Eagle closed down lately owing to  the low price of copper and Mr.  James has taken advantage of the opportunity thus afforded to visit Ottawa  where Mrs. James went last month.���  Rossland Miner.  CONSOLIDATED MINING    AND SMELTING  COMPANY  The Consolidated Mining & Smelting Company of Can., Limited, is operating the Snowshoe mine under lease  and is also working a neighboring  group of mineral claims known as the  Phoenix Amalgamated... As yet the  latter has not been extensively ex  plored; so beyond the finding of some  promising bodies of ore, indicating the  probable occurence of ore in quantity  and of a grade that it will pay to mine,  there is not much known ofthe prop  erty. The Snowshoe, though, was  opened by the Snowshoe Gold & Cop  per Mines, of London,  which in 1902  Qolng ia New Westminster.  The Wm. Hunter company, of  which Wm. Hunter, M. P. P., is president, are having a store erected in  New Westminster, and when completed some time in June, the stock from  their store in Pheonix will be removed  to that city. In ordei to clear out as  much of the stock as possible to prevent moving, the company have  inaugurated ii big removal sale of the  stock on hanj at their Pheonix store.  It will be continued throughout the  month of May. Every person requiring dry goods should read the big  ad. in this issue, and then visit Wm.  Hunter company's sale headquarters.  It will be a money-saving trip.  Mauretania Makes   Record  In the last part of her run from New J  Boundary Mining Notes  F. M. Kerby, P.L.S., of Grand  Forks, has been engaged during the  past week surveying two claims in  Wellington camp for T. Richards.  Drifting has commenced in the No.  2 tunnel of the British Columbia Copper company's Athelstan Fraction and  a fine large body of ore is being explored.

The railway commission has refused  request of the British Columbia government to reduce "passenger and freight  rates on Canadian Pacific in British  Columbia to a par with trie rest of the  Dominion. The province claimed that  at confederation it was not contemplated there should be any discrimination in rates," that Canari;ao Pacific  had violated its contract with the Dominion in 1880, and that the road was  not up to the standard asked for.  Canadian Pacific objected 10 trie  Briiish Columbia.government's appearance in the matter, stating that ih.  contract had not been made with iti��-  British Columbia government, but *ir:h  the Dominion government.

For several months last year tbe city  of Nelson tried   to secure  this  result  by putting the clock on no.hour, but  this confounded the standard time and  caused much confusion, and the system  was voted out by a big majority in January.    The plan, of which   Revelstoke  has taken tbe initiative, appears practical in nearly every way.    It simply  means'changing the working day to an  hour earlier, and'would result in much  longer <iaylight in the evening.

It would  appear that those who-have been  pitted from their g6od money in"'this  wSy inigh't as well' have hurried it so  far as getting returns are concerned.  It is tbe old story of paying for ex-  parfence. The following comment from  thtf Fernie Free Press is interesting in  this connection:  . -"A'njamber of local investors who  b*ve purchased -town lots in Leth-  bridge,-Calgary and other places from  real estate agents are in the unfortunate  position of being unable to secure  title to the land or to secure' a ' refund  of their money.  "Several dupes have taken criminal  action against certain vendors without  avail, the Courts apparently ruling that  Civil proceedings should be commenced  instead.  1   '���The latter course is worse than useless as the vendors are banknipts.  "This is a lamentable condition of  aflairs if such really is the case, as it  would appear that there is no protection -for "the public against this particular brand of confidence man.  There should-be at least a close season  for' suckers to give easy money a  to pile up."  Sir Wilfred Laurierwill shortly introduce a bill calling into existence a  separate department of labor in fulfillment of a promise to tbe labor interests  some time ago. W. L. McKenzie  King, M:P, for North AVaterloo, will  be minister of labor. Mr. King is still  in China, where he went as a delegate  of Grest Britain on the International  congress! He is,now engaged in looking into the Oriental immigration question, but is expected to return home  I shortly.  If not famous for oratorical brilliancy,  G. H. Cowan of Vancouver is to be at  least noted for his vocabulary. "A  false, alarm" and "a white-livered  coward" were among the phrases he  used in the Commons to describe Sir  Wilfred Laurier.  A strike of ruby silver has been  made in the  Hattie Brown, Rossland.  -.The.LeRoi No. 2 mine at Rossland  produced $62,331 of ore  last  month.  A shaft is being sunk on the Golden  Zone, near Hedley, at the rate of 12  feet a week.  The I.X.L. and the O.K., at Rossland, both have several tons of ore  sacked and ready for shipment.  The mines of Rossland are employing at present 565 men and the payroll  per month is' $58,000. In 1905 the  average num ber employed was 777 men  and in 1908 it was something over 800  for the year.  Stuart Henderson, M.P.P., has taken  an option on the North Thompson  coal- lands above the Upper Indian  Reserve, and the first payment was  made last week.

New Methods ii Smelting  New methods of smelting seem to !>*-  favored with much consideration J!i*>  now. The Fink process in trial a-  Salt l_ike City is said to reduce cost ��.f  smelling of certain ores to less than  one half; while the slimes treating p'o-  cess to be tried j_t the Jewel mint',  near Phoenix, is reported to effect a  huge saving. M he Fink process claim:*  to use the sulphur fume^s from the final  smelting furnace as a fuel to roast the  ores in an adjacent furnace, and reports  that little other fuel is required after  smelling is under way. Time will demonstrate the value of these inventions  but at present they must be considered  experimental.  i.fjr  t _  i  \A  ���?.-9 /">% f\  t_J*i %j<Jt\.k  V  J_A  ���rtktaao Kilttd  Brakesman Dalgieish, of the C.

Steam   >    Heated  JAMES flARSHALL, Prop.  1  The Canadian Pacific railway is considering a scheme for sending wheat  of western Canada to Europe via the  Tebuantepec railway of Mexico. Should  this arrangement be effected, the bulk  of Alberta wheat will undoubtedly flow  through Vancouver.  Canada leads the world in the pro  duction of asbestos. During 30'years  the value of the output amounts to  $20,000,000. In 1878 the production  of this mineral was $0 tons, while in  1898 it was 65,534 tons, worth $2,-  547��5��7.   The decline of wheat in one day last  week substricted between $600,000  and $700,000 from tbe paper profits of  the Chicago bull, James A* Patten.  J. Ogden Armour is said to be a bear  in the wheat situation.  Secretary Swegney, of the Victoria  Lacrosse club, has received a letter  from Charles H. Minlo, the president  of tbe California Lacrosse association,  in regard to bringing a team from Cal  ifornia on a tour through British Columbia. It it quite likely that d_tes  will be arranged for the early part of  June, and later on in the season Victoria will send a team to the south for  a series of games.  Miners on Strike at Merrltt  At a union meeting on April 21 the  miners at. Middlesboro colleries, near  Merritt, decided to go on strike the  following morning, and the mines are  now closed down. The union claims  that the company has not kept faith  with the agreement recently drawn up  and signed.  .

THE WORLD'S COPPER  There has been received from Messrs.  1,. Vogelstein & Co., New York, who  are the agents on this country of  Messrs. Aron Hirsch & Sohn of Hal-  berstadt, Germany, a copy of "Copper  Statistics for 1908," compiled by the  latter firm, recognized the world over  as one of the most reliable of the  world . copper statisticians. The work  contains many things of interest to the  copper producers of America. Here  are figures it gives of the world's production of copper last year, by countries, comparison being made with production  of   1907   in   tons   of   2240  pounds:  1908 1907  United States 4o8,93�� 373.66��  Spain and Portugal. 51,700 51,200  Australia  43.000 46,000  Japan  40,000 37.5����  Mexico  39.20�� S8-000  Chile  36,580 28,000  Canada  ?3.9���� 25,620  Germany  23,300 24,300  Peru  17,000 9,5����  Other countries... . <?��,935 48>2<54  Totals 734,545    702,044  Figures of the world's consumption  of copper, in tons of 2240 pounds, are  as follows:  1908 1907  North America...   185,270    214112.0  Copper Restriction  The Boston News Bureau has ah  interesting article on "The cost of  Copper Restriction," which is, in part,  as follows:  "The question of the cost to the  Amalgamated Copper Co., of a complete shutdown of the Butte mines is  interesting, although the Amalgamated  managers now declare that it has shut  down for the last time, and will keer  its organization in operation, whatever  be the future price of copper.  "The Butte estimate of $400,000  per month as the cost of maintenance  unider a shutdown is disputed on both  sides. Competent mining: engineers  familiar with the cost sheets of the  Amalgamated Copper companies declare that $300,000 per month would  more than cover the cost of maintenance during a shutdown. People who  study the situation at long range figure  the cost of an Amalgamated shutdown  as an equivalent of 2 cents per pound  upon the output of 250,000,000 pounds  for the Amalgamated companies. It  is figured that of a 10 cent cost for  copper, there is at least 2 cents per  pound for maintenance of openings,  pumping, general inspection, supervision and the official organization on  the annual salary list. This 2 cents  per pound, or $5,000,000 would still  be cost per annum for the Amalgamated companies in any shutdown.  If, however, the engineers' figures of  the cost of a shutdown of the Butte  camp as only $300,000 per month are  cornet, it can be really figured that,  with the copper mines of the country  as united in interest as are the anthracite coal owners, a shutdown at Butte  would be economically profitable for  the American copper producers as a  whole.  "When the Amalgamated copper  company was formed it was the intention of Mr. Rogers that Montana,  Michigan and Arizona should ultimately be united in copper production  and ownership, working in harmony  with the Rothschilds, who dominate  the largest copper production abroad.  As the original Amalgamated copper  plans have gone by the board, and  probably never can be safely revived  under existing anti-trust laws, it will  be interesting to see how the present  copper problem works out with all  mines going full, and the prospects  good for increased copper production,  with copper between 1 2 and 13 cents."  6. T. P. Construction  General Manager Chamberlain of  Grand Trunk Pacific says: "We wil  spend approximately $10,000,000 on  construction alone this season, and  there will be only 260 miles not under  contract by fall."

The Consolidated Company  mined about 135,000 tons of Snow-  shoe ore in 1907, but operated only  during a part of 1908, with a resultant decrease in tonnage to about 42,-  000 tons. An idea of the value of the  Snowshoe ore is obtainable from the  following figures taken from the last  annual report of the Consoldated  Company, which gives the aggregate  producton of the Snowshow mine from  the time it first shipped ore to Jun.  30, 1908: Tons of ore mined, 227,-  882; gold, 16,349 oz.; silver, 70,161  oz ; copper, 5,935.543 lbs.; gross value  $.587,344- This gives an average  per ton of; Gold. 0.0717 oz.; silver.  0,3079 oz.; copper, 1 3 per cent. This  average, it will be noted,; gives higher  gold and silver values than are shown  earlier as those of the British Columbia Copper Company's Mother Lode  mine.  GENERAL  The aggregate tonnage of ore produced by Boundary district mines  from the time production was commenced in 1901 ��o March 1 of current  year is, approximately 7,515,000 tons,  which may be apportioned in round  figures thus:  Tans  Granby Co's  mines.. 4,815,000  B.

Valued roughly at  $5 per ton (with silver and copper at  present low prices the value per ton is  about $4.50, while during much of the  period under review the average was  appreciably higher), this represents an  output of an average annual value  of not less than ^��"5,000,000 (rather  better than ;�� 1,000,000). Net profits,  disributed as dividends or now available for such distribution, have averaged $500,000 per annum, after making allowance for the very considerable sum out of mine and smelter  earnings spent in equipment, for  whi9b latter the cash capital provided  by the stockholders of the several companies was entirely inadequate. It is  manifest, therefore, that notwithstanding fhe disastrous results that have  been experienced by stockholders in  the_/.Dominion Copper Company,  which worked - under the heavy handi  cap of a: large interest-bearing bonded  indebtedness, copper mining and  smelting in the Boundary district has  been, and continues to be, profitable,  even under conditions, some of which  are unusual, and perhaps unparalled  elsewhere. *  GROCERY DEPARTMENT  We again offer you  Curlew Creamery  Butter  The quantity is limited as yet, j  but we are assured of a steady!  supply beginning on Tuesday  of next week.
