PHOENIX,'BRI'flSH COLUMBIA, SATURDAY. MARCH 27, .909  B. C. COPPER  TO CONTINUE  Will Not Shut Down  as Expected  Operations To Be Continued  at Smelter and Mines  To the Pioneer yesterday, J. E.  McAllister, general manager of ths  British Columbia Copper company,  stated that the company would not  close, as intimated a few days ago, but  would continue operations at both  mines and smelter.    " '  On the 19th inst. a committee of  smelter men waited on the general  manager of the company, J. E.  McAllister, in regard to the dull  business situation and the probability  of the company having to close down  its V/orks as a result of the low  copper market, and���proposed that  if the company would agree to continue  operations, they as a committee would  interview the employees at Mother  Lode mine wiih a view to having them  accept the 10. per cent, reduction in  wages.  The committee was cordially leceiyed  by Mr. McAllister, who stated that he  would be ready to co-operate if the  proposal was the unanimous wish of  the employees. In the event of the  proposal being unanimous Mr. McAllister said the ten per cent.# reduction  would take effect with every official as  well as operating . employees of the  company, both in British -Columbia  and New York, and that the. company  would continue operations at their  properties as long as copper did not go  below 11 cents, and should copper return to 13 cents,- the piesent scale ot  wages would again go, into effect He  further stated that at Mother Lode  store all miners would be allo'wed a ten  per cent, reduction on purchases, and  board would likewise be reduced ten  per cent.. And in the event ofthe  employeei making such an offer, the  reduction in wages would not go into  effect until April .isj.._.... :.���..-..;.; Xy^. ���  Greenwood merchants and hotels  also offered a ten per cent, reduction  in merchandise and board.  With a letter embodying these facts,  and signed by the general manager of  the company and each of the committee,   the  latter  went to  Mother Lode  Gardening is now in progress in the  Kettle valley. <���  Grand Forks is preparing for a building boom this summer.

WILL WORK ROCK  CREEK PLACERS  Greenwood Business Men Stake  Claims on West Fork      '  The Rock Creek placer grounds are  to be worked again, and on a larger  scale than ever in their history. There  are many old prospectors and placer  miners who will recall the flood of gold  that poured from that district in the  early days of gold washing in British  Columbia. The most reliable information which can be secured indicates  that at least $1,000,000 was recovered  from the rich gravel along, the stream,  and this was done by following primi  tive methods and without in any instance reaching bedrock.  1 A company of Greenwood business  men have slaked seven and one-half  miles of the mam stream and its south  fork, application being made for 20-  year leases of half-mile claims. Arrangements have been made for securing  dredging equipment on a large scale,  and it is anticipated that an investment approximating ��1 50,000 Willie  made. Much of the ground has never  been touched on the surface, and none  of.itr has been handled to any depth,  hence it is probable that dredging  operations will prove profitable. Some  of the same men now interested were  in a company which attempted to  secure results by  booming some years  ago     Rim rock was  uncovered for  a  space of about ten feet and the gravel I where we stand and to learn what  A large part of the -D..minion Copper company's now .famous Boundary,  properties are to be placed ,upon the  market and sold at an early^ date^under the mortgage held by the National  Trust company, of. Toronto, trustees  for the bondholders. '  It   is . practically  certain   that -the.  shareholders will buy in the properties^. ���  in.the plan for  the   reorganization   of  the company. '  The sale will be under the;authority  of a  judgment given  by Mr. Justice  Clement in tbe supreme court at Vancouver   for   the   foreclosure   of   thei  mortgage held on behalf of the  bbnd-  hoftlers.'Buf while fh'ey "won OUf~oh  ~  one branch of the case the court held  that   that   mortgage  did   not  include  after-acquired    properties    those    obtained upon the credit or means of the  company. other,   than were   acquired .  from the bond issue.  ^ The National Trust  company  con:  tended that these, as wellas all  other ;  assets of the company, "we're included  in the mortgage.    But'the court agreed  with the company,  the  liquidator and  the unsecured creditors that - the_mort-  gage  did   not  cover; these particular -  properties. , .  This means that the unsecured  creditors will practically be paid in full  as well as all the-others.    . .  The bonds cover nearly   a   million.

IRATE DOMINION COPPER STOCKHOLDERS IN CONCLAVE AT NEW YORK  (Kxtractirom New York sun) went into the hands of a receiver about  More than 200 stockholders and a year ago and now a fight has been  bondholders of the Dominion Copper j started against the proposed reor-  company   held   an   autopsy   over   the j ganization.  corpse   at    the    Hotel   Grenoble last j     The "fighters" have organized them  night.    They came  to no conclusion  as to what had caus-d the Donvnion's  sad end, but they aid have some ..decided notions as to any resurrection.  They were against the reorganization  of the company on the plan proposed  by the committee of which Charles  Hayden, of Hayden, St ne & Co , is  the chairman. This committee'repre-  sents the old management of the company, it is charged, and is being engineered by Samuel Untermyer.  Some of the stockholders at last  night's meeting were ho'Sh on Mr.  Untermyer. One insisted on calling  h'm Mr. "Under-the-Mire." The  plan of the rec ganization committee  was delicately referred to as "the biggest holdup ever heard of in Wall  Street," as an "audacious attempt to  confiscate property," and as a few  other things too warm to print.  One stockholder figured it out that  the ground out in British Columbia  would have to produce diamonds instead of copper to let the old stock  holders otit under the proposed plan,  and another, after dissecting the entire  history of the company had decided  that he didn't want to put any more  of his cash into it under any circumstances.  The troubles of the Dominion company are an echo of tbe old Munroe &  Munroe failure in Wall Street. The  Montreal and Boston Consolidated  property, whose stock the Munroe  firm was laundrying when it met disaster, was taken into the Dominion  company about three years ago. About  500,000 shares of stock, par $10, are  outstanding, and $800,000 of bonds  have   been   issued.     The    company  selves into the stockholders and bondholders' protective committee, with B.  W Lincoln as chairman. The other  members of the committee are Chan-  ning Stebbins, E. H. Dare, Albert  Seligman, Frank C. Pitcher, A. A.  Potter and E. L. Meyer The committee says it represents 300,000  shares, or a majority of the stock.  At hist night's meeting the protesting stockholders pledged themselves  to raise $5,000 for tne purpose of in  vestigating the old management of the  company and protecting their interests.  The protective committee submitted a  report last night, in which they call  upon the old management of the com  pany to explain two or three things.  For instance, the stockholders committee wants to know what has become  of about $900,000. They say that  the company's gross receipts in 1906  and 1907 were $2,709,713.81. The  operating expenses for the period weie  $1,240,226.86. In retiring bonds  $170,000 was expended, for smelter  eq 'ipment about $2.?5,ooo, and tor  mine development about $200,000.  Says the report:  This would leave in all about $900,-  000 to he accounted for.  question. What has become of the  money? It seems to have disappeared  in the mazes of book keeping. There  is one item that might explain. In  the balance sheet of July 3t, 1907,  the statement is made that $1,441,-  863.50 is to be counted in among tbe  assets, which is represented as a net  discount on new capital issues, etc.  While we arj not expert accountant;:,  it is our first experience wherein dis  count on capital issued was considered  an asset. It is these items, and perhaps many more that might be mentioned, that call for the services of  expert accountants working at the request of the stockholders of the com  pany and not at the request of the old  management. If these items are  cleared up and a few more, we may  come to a real understanding as to  why the company is at present in the  hands ol a receiver and the stock  holders are being called upon to pay  additional cash.  The directors of the old compa-.y  were C. ]. Cull, Leopold Herrmann  Samuel Newhous-j, H. H. Melville'  John M. Shaw, and Aithur   Wickwire'  There was a whole lot of talk about*  plans last night, and finally one old  man who had been listening very attentively lose up and said he would  like to know fiis: Is the property the  company owns of any value ? That  seemed pertinent '.o him.  Robert O. Ingersoll was able to  answer. He had managed to "bulldoze" the old management into telling  him where the receiver and liquidator  was stopping in this town. Said receiver and liquidator was formerly  the manager of the property and a  thoroughly honest gentleman. He  personally considered the Domini n  properties a fine proposition. All they  needed was a little financial backing  Again' the and they ought to pay a dividend of  'from 25 to 40 cents a share at the  piesent market price.  When it came to a question of rais  ing the $5000 for the "protection of the  stockholders' interests somebody suggested an assessment of five cents a  share. Chairman Lincoln said that  would be too much; that they would  have something left over.  "Well, declare a dividend," sang out  one humorist in the rear of the room,  and everybody scowled.  moved averaged $4 a yard. On the  South Fork by hand alone an average  of 25 cents a yard has been recovered  over a period extending over the last  20 years.  The workings on Rock Creek will  be but a short distance from the town  of Bridesville, on the Great Northern  railway, just over the Boundary line.  The original discovery of gold on the  creek was made in 1858 by a party of  prospectors from Seattle. From that  time until now the ground has always  been worked, the period of greatest  production being in the early '60s.

We will also seek a court writ authorizing inspection of the books to learn  to what uses the funds have been put.  The reorganization plan outlines a  scheme whereby the property may be  bought in at foreclosure sale to be  held shortly under auspices of the  Canadian government. The reorganization committee states that about  $500,000. of the bonds have been deposited, but the protective committee  says it represents the necessary 10%  of bonds to have its actions carry  weight with the Canadian authorities,  so that the proposed foreclosure sale  may be postponed until full investigation may be made.

The bulk nf the deliveries wiM probably be made btf re June 1. When  the Copper I'roduceis' association  makes .public ils staterm nt cuverinu1  the current'-month it should show a  big reduciion in slocks in ;t finer!.'  hands.  It is stated that contracts entered  inio for the account of American  manufacturers greatly exceed genera'  estimates. An 1 fticial of one of tilt-  agencies handling over 100,000,00c  pounds of copper a year, says that of  his company's recent heavy sales fully  one half were for home consumption.  There continues a fair demand for  Lake and casting copper; the furmer  grade is obtain-ble at 13^ cents a  pound. The producers of Lake have  much of their production each year  taken by regular customers who, al  though not running.on', full time, are  taking goodly quantities  each   month.  well up to the tonnages disposed of in  the season lhat marked the earlier  stages of ihe last boom. One of the  somli-western producers has unfilled  orders for 26,000,000 pounds of copper  to be shipped within a month. Near'y  all the prodtcers and consumers believe that prices for electrolytic wil  waver for a few weeks between 12/4J  and 13^4 cents a pound.  Copper Buying Seems to be Stronger  Concerning copper production  and  consumption the Wall Street Summary  says.: ::-  "The"selling agent of the largest copper producing interest s'ates that most  of the western and southwestern producers are well sold up for prompts  and are fairly wall engaged for futures.  Says Copper Si uat'on la Not ao Bad  Horace J Stevens, author ufCopnei  Handbook, takes an optimistic view ol  the copper situation, although he ad  inits that there is no prospect ol inv  mediate relief. Mr., Stevens recent!)  said :  ���'In my judgment, the situition is-  nol so black as many imagine. There  is a considerable accumulation of un-  consumed- copper in this country and  abroad, but return to normal business  conditions in tbe United States will  absorb this surplus quite rapidly, and  all things considered, I th nk the cut  in price was the part of wisdom, as it  will be better for the metal market to  have the surplus pass into actual use,  at reduced prices rather than to pile  up further.  " From my reading of the statistics  of production and consumption, I am  led to anticipate another copper famine  ������or what will be called such���probably within the next two years, as the  world's increase in output has been  much below normal for three years  past. This will mean another great  big boom, followed by another smash.  The    largest  Arizona  and   Mexico  copper   mining   interests   report   that (It is tbe same old story over and   over  their sales within a few days have been ' again, world without end."  MINE IN DANGER THROUGH FIRE  Hard Fight to Subdue Flames   in Centre  Star  at Rossland  The fire on the 400 foot level of  the Centre Star mine at Rossland was  extinguished at two o'clock Saturday  morning after a well directed, strenuous  and difficult fight that lasted for about  twenty hours, and Rossland residents  are breathing easily again.  When the smoke and steam were  rising about 200 feet above the collar  of the shaft, and a portion of the mine  was ablaze it seemed as if the entire  mine equipment, with its splendid  headworks, would be involved in a  common destruction. A conflagration  once it got started in the timbers,  might last for months, and perhaps for  years. The Centre Star shaft is nearly  2,400 feet in inclined length, the deepest in Canada, and the mine is the  largest producer of gold in the Dominion.  The first stream of water was laid.  on from the 250 foot level above the  fire. This was augmented by placing  a pump in Centre Star gulch, and laying 1,600 feet of pipe along the thirty  foot level. From these two sources a  large stream of water was poured down  from the 320 foot level through a chute  on top ofthe burning timbers and sills.  The draft from the Idaho shaft,  which is connected by levels with the  Centre Star workings, gave the fire  fighters air, and enabled them to get  action with several lines of those from  below on the fire. Thus the conflagration was fought scientifically from  above and below.  Considering the many difficulties  that were in the way the subterranean  blaze was suppressed in a remarkably  short time. This result was accomplished owing to the energetic manner  in which the mine office staff, the shift  bosses and the miners worked under  the careful direction of W. H. Aldridge,  general manager of the Consolidated  company.  Although several of the fire fighters  were momentarily overcome from inhaling smoke, there was not one seriously hurt. The mine will resume  operations on Monday.  ���MORE  KHOWtEDCE  Of Canada'* Wild  lands Neoeasary for Their  Development.  How much timberis there in Canada?  A recent estimate gives six hundred  billion feet. This Seems an enormous  quantity, but it would |as>t a very short  time if Canada were generally drawn  upon for a timber siipp'y ; at their present rate of consumption the United  States alone would consume that quantity in about fifteen years.  As a matter of fact few nlable data  exist from which it is possible to esti  mate Canada's forest resour. e*. Even  the number of acres of... titnberland m  this country is not known with an)  degree of accuracy, and even the experts disagree widely; though they unitt  in placing it considerably below formei  estimates. >'  The present  is just  the  time  foi  Canada to "take stock" of her timbei  resources,  not  to mention her  othei  natural wealth.    TTcr natural resources  have not yet been dissipated to a  very  large extent,  and   if Canadians   now  secure an estimate of  their  wealth  in  natural resources, they can,  oy econ  omical use of them, avoid much of ���tin-  waste such as other nations have made.  For many years the  United  States  has   lavishly  distributed   its   national  wealth, but during the past   few  years  thoughtful men   in   that  nation   have  begun to see that they must economize.  As a result, after a conference of governors of  the  several   states,   scientific  experts, leaders in comm.rceand transportation and others, in May last, President Roosevelt appointed a  "Conser  v.itive Commission" to make a thorough'  investigation of the national resources  contained in the forests, the. mines, the  soil and  the streams (')olh  for, water-  supply and'for   transportation).     The  commission   has  since   then   been  at  work, and during the second  week  of  December reported at a  meeting similar to the one preceeding their appointment.  In order to afford a fair chance for  the economical administration of Canada's forests, a similar inventory of her  timb-.r wealth should be made. Present ideas of the amount of timber in  the Dominion are based almost entirely  jn the reports of those "who have travelled along the chief waterways. Men  who have gone in some distance from  the streams report that the timber becomes much smaller and more scattered  as one gets away from the river. This  is the case, indeed, in all forests.  What is-needed is-a systematic exploration of the whole unexplored  region, (the country at a distance from  streams as well as that along the watercourses) by men familar with the work  of estimating timber. Full and accurate  reports of such explorations will serve  to clear up much misconception regarding the extent and amount of Canada's  forest land, just as the explorations  made in Northern Ontario in 1900  cleared up the ideas formerly held as  to the value of Ontario's hinterland.

Effective     Home - Made  Medicine for Kidneys  and the Bladder  What will appear very interesting  to many people nereis the article taken  from a New York daily paper, giving  a simple prescription, which is said to  be a positive remedy for backache or  kidney or bladder dearrangement, it  taken befo.e the stage of Blight's disease:  Fluid Extract Dandelion, one-half  ounce: Compound Kargon, one ounce;  Compound Syrup Sasparilla, three  ounces. Shake well in a bottle and  take in teaspoonful doses after each  meal and again at bedtime  A well-known druggist here at home,  when asked regarding this prescription,  stated that the ingredients are all  harmless, and can be obtained at a  small cost from any good prescription  pharmacy, or the mixture would be  put up if asked to do so. He further  stated that while this prescription is  often prescribed in rheumatic afflictions with splendid results, he could  see no reason why it would not be a  splendid remedy for kidney and urinary troubles and b^chache, as it has  a peculiar action upon the kidney  structure, cleansing these most important organs and helping them to sift  and filter from the blood the foul acids  and waste matter which cause sickness  and suffering. Those of our readers  who suffer can make no mistake in  giving it a trial. >  MR.   C.  J. ATKINSON.  doing this sort of thing than I woul<  in making money for myself."  And that he does get "more fun ou-  of it" no one who-has met Chas. J  Atkinson can doubt. A poor mar  save only for the abundance of'hi-  accomplishments and the fewness o  his wants, living modestly in his join-  office and living room in a top bnc!  room .in the institution he has fount1  ed, there is perhaps no man inthi*  great city more profoundly and infectiously: happy than he.  Of course the secret of the whol-  matter is that he is a man with s.  hobby, and to this hobby he has giv  en his life. In an age when so m��n>  married men with means find solae ���  at the club, and so many married  ladies with time and affection to snare  lavish both freely upon an unhealthy  little dog, it is perhaps a most appropriate and unavoidable circumstance  that this middle-aged bachelor's hob-  bv is boys.  "The Broadview, Boys' Institute, of  which Mr. Atkinson is the founder  and superintendent, is one: of the results bf this mutual attraction. Years  ago, when Mr. "Atkinson was pursuing his peaceful avocation as a printer, he saw the boys of the east end  running wild, spoiling for a little wise  discipline. When he opened a "boys'  brigade" for them in the basement of  a little church on Broadview avenue  they could not resist the temptation  to join, and, although strict discipline  ���even to compulsory attendance at a  Sunday morning religious service-  was enjoined, it was not long before,  the Boys' Brigade outgrew the church,  and Mr. Atkinson und his 300 young  followers had to look for ��� more commodious quarters.  It was then that the subconscious  Atkinson ��� Atkinson, the company  promoter and financial Atkinson-  woke up and came to the rescue.  There was a piece of land over five  acres in extent, with a large residence  on it, for sale close by. With the ability of a financier this was secured  and has since been the home of this  enterprising organization.  Of the details of that remarkable  experiment of a self-governing commonwealth of boys���their system of  farms, fairs, town plots and reeves;  their parliaments, laws, police, militia; their finances, their promotion of  companies for refreshments, bee and  honey-raising, potato-raising, summer  outing company, even to the purchase  of a small lake steamer, operated by  a duly certified captain and engineer,  plving to and from -the boys' summer  resort on Lake Couchiehing, their  dealing in their own stocks on their  own stock exchange���these, with a  host of other matters appertaining to  this bov-world, have been told previously in various papers and maga:  7-ines. But of the personality of the  man who is the organizer of this most  complete and original scheme for  training boys in the arts of citizenship little has been said.  Even the photographs of Mr. Atkinson give little clue to his personality.  Thev look like him only when he  looks like that, and we suspect he  onlv looks like that when sitting for  his'photograph. They -ire true in so  far as thev depict the firm, set mouth  and jaw and the penetrating glance  of the deep-set eyes of the C. J. Atkinson wbo thinks out plans and who  carries with him such an air of real  authority that no boy in the commonwealth would dare to set his will  against the superintendent's. But the  real C. J.

In its last issue  at Greenwood, on Thursday, the Ledge  ;ives the following ultimatum to its  readers: "Owing to the fact that our  business is becoming almost as grea'  in Kootenay as"in the Boundary, and  one or iwo other reasons, this is the  last issue of the Ledge in Greenwood.

WILL BUILD NEW STORE  Enterprising Jeweler Parchasea Lot for New  Premises.  The coining summer promises to see  a number of new buildings in Phoenix,  several proposed buildings being  now on the tapis.  During the past week E. A. Black,  the local enterprising jeweler, purchased a valuable building lot on  Knob Hill avenue from the Morrin,  Thompson company. The property  is 30 by 60 feet, adjoining T.

A    WAR   CORRESPONDENTS  u     NARROW ESCAPE  j Mr. Frank Scudamore, the great  war correspondent, who sent many of  the Canadian despatches during the  late Boer war, owes his health to Zam-  Buk. He has passed unscathed through  twenty-nine battles, but a scratch which  turned to blood-poisoning nearly ended  his days. Zim-Buk saved him and he  writes as follows :��� -  "I have proved Zam-Buk such a  blessing that I want others to know of  its merits. The poisonous dye in some  underclothing I was wearing got inio  a scratch I had sustained and blood-  poisoning set up. Inflammation was  followed by great pain and swelling,  and then ulcers broke out on my legs.  For some time I could not walk a few  steps, nor even put my feet to the  eround. On the left ieg below the  knee I had seventeen ulcers which  caused holes into which I could put  my thumb. On. the right leg I had  fourteen ulcers. Medical treatment  failed to relieve, homely remedies were  applied in vain. Week followed week  and I gradually got worse, until I was  worn out with pain and lack of sleep.  Oo the advice of a friend I obtained  some Zam-Buk and left off everything  else while I tried it. It seemed to give  almost instant relief from the pain, and  in a few days I noticed that it was  healing the ulcers. This was cheering  indeed, and gladly I persevered with  the Zam-Buk treatment. Bit by bit  the poisionous matter was drawn out.  The ulcers were healed, and new  healthy skin grew over the previously  diseased places. I am now quite cured  and in gratitude I mention these facts  that other, sufferers from skin disease  may know of something which will cure  them. '    , ���  Zam-Buk is a sure cure for eczema,  ringworm, ulcers, abscesses, piles, bad  leg, suppurating wounds, cuts, burns,  bruises, chapped hands, and cold  craekj, im,d all skin injuries and di-  seasgif.': A}\ druggists and stores sell  at fifty cent* box orjpost free from Zam-  Buk Co.,Toxoj��to,upon receipt of price.
