MAY 22,  1909  No. 26  WILL INSTAL  BIG MACHINE  To Drive Green wood-  Phoenix Bore  Operations on Tunnel Now in  Nearly 100 Feet  Operations on the big tunnel, which  is to run under the mountain upon  which Phoenix is located, and was  commenced a month ago, is now in  close to the 100-foot mark.  Speaking of the big project Richard  Armstrong, the resident promoter,  states that negotiations are now under  way to secure one of the big" Swiss-  Shandler machines, which will cut an  eight-foot bore at a rate of 50 feet a  day. The machines themselves cost  about $60,000.  The company is incorporated in  Illinois as the Greenwood-Phoenix  Tramway and Development company,  with a capitalization of $3,000,000.  "The work that the company plans  is really pioneer work, as important as  the first surface prospecting done in-  that district," said Mr. Armstrong.  "None of the companies have penetrated to a depth of more than 400 or  500 feet, and if ore is encountered in  our tunnel at a depth of 2400 feet it  will mean more for the district than  anything else that has been done here.  It will mean that eastern capital will  come in and the development ofthe  district immediately to an extent that  would otherwise wait for small companies to run tentative shafts."  McKiiaey'i Floater Prospector  James Copeland, the pioneer prospector of Camp McKinney, was in  town on Thursday. Mr. Copeland  was a prospector in the Boundary over  a quarter ot a century ago, before any  of the present camps had commenced  development. Next month Mr. Copeland reaches the three score and ten  limit but is today like a youth':- in so  far as activity and lack of gray hairs  would indicate, anijcr^dju^^ j  condition to living;.|argely in'the-open  air. He is owner of the Le Roi mine  at McKinney, which is bonded and  being developed by a Phoenix syndicate.  Recent development work on the  Lucky Shot property has exposed a  large body of good pre.  The Argo Mining company have  commenced work on a tunnel to tap  the high-grade veins at the south end  of Greenwood ctty.  F. Whit well, who owns several  claims in the Boundary and last week  concluded a contract on the Lucky  Shot property, left on Wednesday for  Cobalt.  "We unhesitatingly advise you to  stand by your first decision and put  your trust in the reorganization committee of the Dominion Copper company," says the Boston Commercial to  an enquirer.  The re-organization committee of  the Dominion Copper Company reports that there were deposited with it  under the plan of reorganization in ex  cess of $600,000 bonds out of the  total issue of $800,000.  There will be a holiday at Granby  mines on Monday. The two new, furnaces, No. 3 and 4, at the smelter are  expected to be blown in on Tuesday,  and Shipments will then be commenced  from 'the Gold Drop outlet of the mines.  Among the many mines and locations that will be - tapped by the proposed new C.P.R. spur to Wellington  and Central camps are Jackpot, American Boy, New York No. 7, Jack of  Spades, City of Paris, Washington and  the Lone Star.  O. E. LeRoy, who headed the geological survey of Phoenix camp last  year, returned from Ottawa on Saturday and is concluding detail work in  connection with the survey. He is accompanied by Chas. W. Drysdale, who  has just graduated from McGill college.  Mr. LeRoy, leaves next week for  Slocan district and will be engaged  during the present season in making a  survey of 200 square miles in that district.  P. F. Roosa, liquidator of the Dominion Copper company, states that  the mines of the company are being  kept unwatered and that he looked for  an early resumption of work after the  sale by auction on May 28. The renewal of operations, stated Mr. Roosa,  was largej^. contingent upon the price  ofTcbpper, but he felt optimistic as to  the future ofthe mines. The company  still owe a certain sum in wages to their  employees but this will be paid off  after the sale of the property.  THE C.P.R. AFTER  RAWHIDE RAILS  Attempt at Purloining Frustrated on Saturday  The Rawhide mine of the Dominion  Copper company was the scene of considerable excitement last Saturday  evening, and whether or not the Canadian Pacific Railway company would  be guilty of stealing, the incident  would indicate that they were at least  endeavoring to purloin some property  which they cannot, as yet at least, con-  sidei an asset.  On Saturday evening an official of  the company with a score or more  assistants shifted a flat car to the Rawhide siding and commenced to load it  with steel rails which were on Rawhide  property. George Johns, the watchman at the mine, endeavored to pre-|  vent the crew from taking rails which  he thought in no way belonged to the  railway company, but the; CvP/R,  official after some passage at arms  ordered his men to proceed. Mr.  Johns sent for Superintendent Rund-  berg, who through P. F. Roosa, liquidator ofthe Dominion Copper company,  communicated by wire with the  supreme court at Vancouver, and  orders were promply issued to the  C.P.R., which resulted in the work of  purloining the steel being stopped.  The interesting situation then developed that the car was loaded with  the rails on Dominion Copper; property, where it is now blocked, and the  C.P.R. are unable to remove it.  Boundary Side Lights  Evaagelltti Conclude Services  Rev. H. A. Berlis and Prof. Lowe,  who concluded the evangelistic campaign here on Sunday, left on Monday.  Mr. Berlis goes to Hosmer, and will  continue evangelistic work there. Prof.  Lowe goes to Kamloops, where the  campaign is also being carried on.  Both Rev. Mr. Berlis and Prof. Lowe  are zealous evangelists and will do  much good wherever they go.  Victoria Dar at Oraatl Porks  The Grand Forks fire department  have arranged for an good program  of attractions for their annual Victoria  Day celebration there on Monday next.  Football, baseball, auto races, horse  races and athletic sports are among  the drawing cards. ..It, is expected the  Great Northern uainV to iPhoenix will  be held for a few hours in order that  Phoenicians may return late in the  evening.

Goad Ore ia ibe Caraey  Work was resumed in tunnel No. 1  in the Carney mine at Mullan, Idaho,  about ten davs ago, under the directions of J. L. Martin. Mr. Martin  received a letter Wednesday evening  from the secretary, C. D. Miller, in  which he says : "Mr. Cole has been  working on the upper tunnel; after  going a few feet, he entered a body of  really fine ore, better than has ever before been shown up. It is two to three  feet wide. A number have seen the  rock and believe it will run about 4%  copper. Some say it is the best looking copper rock they ever saw from.the  south side."  This is news which will interest  many shareholders in the Boundary,  and all of Mr. Martin's friends as well,  will be pleased to hear of the success  of his mining enterprise.  GRANBY GENERAL  MANAGER IMPROVING  Jay   P. Graves' Physician   is  Hopeful  "While it can "not definitely be said  that Jay P. Graves is recovering his  condition is certainly better than it was  a week ago," said Pr. E. D. Olmsted  on Tuesday- General Manager Graves  of the Granby company was taken ill  with typhoid fever three weeks ago today, on the day he arrived home in  Spokane after a trip in the east.  "Saturday, May 8, he wa.s so ill that  it could not be said certainly that he  would live two hours," said Dr, Olmsted,  "Now it looks as though he would live  for a long time. The fever will not  run its course until next Saturday or  Sunday, but Mr. Graves is getting  along well,"  Greenwood's jail isji being enlarged  for the expected,inflyx.hext week.

At the annual meeting of the Snow-  shoe Gold and Copper Mines, Limited,  held in London on May 7th, the following report (Snowshoe mine, Phoenix) for the year ended Sept. 30th,  1908, was presented :  "It became desirable in November,  1907, in agreement with the suggestion  of the lessees (the Consolidated Mining  and: Smelting company of Canada,  Limited), owing to the low price of  copper and the adverse working conditions then prevailing, to close down  t'>e mine temporarily.The mine was  reopened again on   1st; of September,  1908, leaving an interval of a cessation of work of nine months. In consequence of the mine having been  worked only three months of the year  under review, the output only amounted  to 45,336 dry tons of 2000: lbs. This  ore contained 2,2496 ozs. gold, 16,240  ozs. silver and 1,113,536 lbs. copper  being an average per ton of approximately .055 6z. gold, ,3 oz silver and  1.2 per cent copper. The royalties  amounted to ^��1,851, equivalent to  9-8d per ton, and in consequence of  there having been only three months  work at the mine, the debit balance of  profit and loss is increased by ^1,721,  and after writing off all expenditure  for the year and 10 per cent depreciation from mine machinery and plant  and buildings, etc.  "But since the beginning of September last the lessees have maintained a  monthly output of some 10,000 tons,  and the company's liability to the bank  is being steadily reduced. It is proposed by the lessees to increase the  output in the event of the price of copper advancing. The mine has not  been unwatered below the tunnel level  since operations were resumed, and  consequently it has.mot been possible"  to yet demonstrate what ore may exist  in depth or to I cate further ore bodies  on lower levels. It is understood that  the lessees propose (when they have  occasion to unwater the second level  for the purpose of extracting ore) to  to make use of the diamond drill in a  vertical borehole in the f otwall side  of the Snowshoe body to explore for  the existence of further ore deposits at  depth.  "In the annual report to the shareholders of the leasing company (the  Consolidated Mining and Smelting  company of Canada, Ltd.) dated 15th  August, 1908, the the managing director of that company stated that he  considered the chances favorable for  additional ore bodies near the surface  of the Snowshoe mine."  At present operations at the Snow-  shoe mine are confined largely to surface mining. About 70 men are employed and the shipments continue at  an average of about 10,000 tons per  month.  CONFERENCE RE  MOVING SCHOOL  Phoenix City Assessment Roll  for 1909 Presented  Mayor Rumberger and Aldermen  Rogers, McKenzie and Hillier were  the only members of the city council  present at the regular session last Wednesday evening.  Communications were read from A.  Robinson, superintendent of education,  and A. Sullivan, inspector, re the removal of Phoenix public school to a  more suitable location in the city. A  date will be arranged for a conference  between the inspector, the school board  and the city council.  The treasurer's statement was read,  showing the temporary fiuances of the  city were improving.  The finance committee recommended payment of $6.70 to A. Alm-  strom for general supplies.  The assessor presented the revised  assessment roll for 1909 which was  accepted and turned over to the city  clerk.  It was moved by Aid. Rogers, seconded by Aid. Hillier, that Mayor  Rumberger and Aldermen Deane, McKenzie, Hillier, Marshall and Rogers  be appointed to sit as a court of revision for hearing complaints against  the assessment roll for 1909. The  court of revision will be held an Tuesday, June 29th, at 2 p.m.  It was moved by Aid. Hillier, seconded by Aid. Rogers that Phoenix  Miners' Union and Order of Owls be  requested to each send a committee j!  to meet members of the city council!  on May 30th to go to the cemetery to  mpke a selection, of' lots they  require.  Operations continue at the Golden  Eagle on the >*orth Fork where sorn.e  35 men are at present employed,.  The King's Business  (By the Publicity Committee)  The evangelistic campaign in Phoenix closed last Sunday evening. Saturday and Sunday's meetings were both  largely attended. On Saturday evening Prof. Lowe gave probably the best  series of moving pictures and stereop-  ticon views presented during the campaign. The pictures were the clearest  ever shown in Phoenix, and with Mr.  Lowe's talks in connection with these  religious pictures, a decidedly successful stimulus is given to evangelism.;  On Sunday, evening Rev. H. A.  Berlis delivered a splendid sermon,  concluding with a strong appeal to his  hearers to accept the teachings of the  Bible and take a stand for Christianity  and the betterment of mankind.

'  FATAL ACCIDENT  AT SNOWSHOE MINE  James Barry Killed by Falling  Earth on Sunday  . A fatal accident occurred at the  Snowshoe mine about 1 o'clock on  Sunday afternoon, when James Barry  lost his life.  He was working in an open cut and  was in a stooped position when some  overhanging earth fell on him, crushing  his head and breaking one of his arms.  Although there was a comparatively  smallamount of earth fell it was packed  and hit the unfortunate man with such  force as to result in his death almost  instantaneously.  A. S. Black of Greenwood, roronei,  investigated the case on Monday and  decided an inquest was unnecessary.  This is the first serious accident that  has occurred at the Snowshoe mine for  some years.  Deceased was an experienced minei,  an ex-president of Phoenix Miners'  Union, and had been a resident of the  camp for about ten years. He was 38  years of age and came from Montreal,  where his father is a prominent leather  merchant. The funeral took place on  Tuesday'to the C.P.R. depot, the remains being shipped to the east for  interment.

' The Tale the Stringer Telle  An exchange  tells of the} success  that   attended   the   following    of  a  stringer.    This stringer, pursued to its  source, brought,,theioperators,into a  " large,:new ore shoot, and the mine has  been ''born again." L  .        ���        i  A^'stringer "is an  amateur vein that  usually leads off from somewhere, but  seldom has any startling value of its  own.    Miners develop a fine conte,mpt  for stringers,,because, what,, they,, .want  is the main vein, and they don't always  ,     �����<��-.V-.1k'3ft.;,��K.-"'   Sfr-T"*',"''".'"**"*  feel i satisfied���that, by following the  stringer, they will get it in the shortest  time! or even find the main fissure.  " On the other hand, we find lessees  following up every indjcationof mineralization, because they want to grasp,  every possibility of ore. Usually they  have a small account back of them/^or  onlv<a little credit, and don t propose  pas|ing up what might.be a suggestion.  During the process'of cracking-up  the,,big hills, the fissures were not all  lined up in geometrical order. They  were irregular, and sometimes a main  fracture had a number of little fissures  running Bfrom it, constituting J.he  stqugerir"ATtimes',"by following'these  stringers, the result has been disappointing, and maybe the course the  stringers take is irregular, and doesn't  result in workings that are "according  toHoyle.;'-:-  ���'     -'*  - -  Again, the springer may be very close  to a'big shoot.- "Mining men, with all  their wisdom, sometimes pass up the  very things that beclcon them on to  fortune. There is, by way of'illustration,* the story of one of the Cripple  Creek mines that,was supposed to be  worked out. A new superintendent  became inquisitive, broke through the  hanging wall in the old drifts, and  found that a seam of sylvanite.was  plastered against the country rock.  Thei result was the making of a mine  thaj^has kept right on producing.  Nature writes her own book. We  errjn not being able to read it, or in  reading paragraphs- when pages are  spread before us. The allied sciences  affecting mining are,assisting us in the  interpretation, and the day may come  when we can c .rrectly decipher the  talp the stringer tells.  The placer ground on McConne'.l  Creek and Ingenica river is not panning out as it was expected to do two  years ago.  A proposals onjopt.tp.hjijness the  Shuswap Falls and supply electrical  power to points in the Okanagan with  as much "power aV tfie" Bonnington  Falls plant supplies Kootenay.  On Copper Mountain, west of Voigt's  camp, in the Similkameen, ore has  struck in the No. 4 that assays 85 per  cent copper and $73 in gold. The  ore is cbalcop'yrites and copper glance  fjund in a lime formation.  Letters have been sent, out by the  reorganization committee of the bond  holders of the Sullivan group at Marys-  ville, notifying creditors that the bondholders will proceed under .their, mortgage to take over the properly, and  outlining a scheme of reorganization  which, if "followed, would result in the  revival of work upon the group.  *      *        I  Judge Lampraan, ol Victoria, and  Mr. : Thomas'Kiddie, superintendent  of Le Roi smeltei at North port, Wash,  and formerly of'La'dysmith, left Saturday for Merritt, where on Monday  they began taking evidence in1 connec-  tlon with the arbitration proceedings  between the miners and the Nicola  Valley Coal and Coke company. They  will act rn conjunction with a third ar-  bitratocrepresenting the United Mine  workers of America.  Several years' development work at  a cost of a .large sum of money has  proved that the Kimberly group, near  Kamloops, is a veritable mountain of  low grade'copper. The copper values  are "hot high; from two per cent, to  higher grade; but the ore carries gold  Vrom $1.50 to $6 per ton. Owing to  the fact, however, that the- whole of  the mountain upon which the group is  located' is from, present indications  practically' soli'd* ore ,the, mining expenses will be, light a'nd'ii is anticipated  that .it'-will, be easy to show a big  *profit on the workings.  1  The New York Tribune and tl.e  New; York Tinit,s express a belief that  Mr,,'Henry H. Roger*, president of  *tie' f Amalgamated Copper company  is behind a plan to consolidate eveiy  copper interest in the United States  into one.gigantic organization and that  Mr. \Villiam Ellis Corey, president of  the ;Uriited "States Steel Corporation,  had been selected by Mr. Rogers as  one of the men to carry through this  Great Northern Train* to A.Y.P.  On and after May 23rd the crack  train of the Great* Northern-.the -'Oriental Limited" will be run from Seattle  and Tacoma through to Chicago using  Burlihgtontracks St. Paul to Chicago.

GraT-1  The amalgamation of enough producers of asbestos to dominate the  world's markets for the raw and manufactured materials, of which the Province of Quebec is the chief source, is  receiving the finishing touches. It  will be" an artistic piece of workmanship when the public are let into the  details; it will have the combined advantages of raw material, water power,  practical monopoly, and most of the  trade. What more the promoters could  possibly desire has not been audibly  cannoted. As near as can be ascertained, there arenoopen numbers on  the dancing program, the promoters  being satisfied with this mathematical  tintinabulation:  Year. tons  IB80  3*0  1885 .... 3.440  1890 ... 9863  1896  10,892  1400  3>,MI  1905  5��.665  1908  65,159  ���As>b��sto�����  Short  Value  $      24,700  U2.44'  1,760,240  423 oc6  -29886  i,4����3W  2,55" ,5S6  ���Asbestic-  Phort  Value.  1,358  7 5��  17394  35*39  6.790  1S.54-  i6,9oo  25,829  TotM to , d  Date.-  541,105     $20,823.38*      >75,oo��    J '50.638  With $21,074,020 in retrospect, and  the report of Expert Earle C. Bacon  that the' supplies of Quebec asbestos  to be incorporated in the Amalgamated  Asbestos Corporation, Limited, are  "practically inexhaustible," as much  so in the main "as any coal mine in  Pennsylvania " i* in risk of exhaustion,  the manufacturing trades concerned  may be confronted���although reprisals  would be disastrous���by what they did  not anticipate. Evidently so, else  they' would not have taken it for  granted that this natural resource  offered a free field in perpetuity. Instead of that, there is to be a central  organization with an authorized 5 per  cent, bond issue of $7,500,000, preferred stock to the extent of $1,875,-  000, and $8,000,000 of common stock,  and the largest operators have already  in letter and spirit accepted the terms  and conditions of the promoters. For  the underwriting there is' to be a bonus  in preferred and common stock, leaving something for those who planned  the merger, the earnings of which may  roughly be approximated by taking as  a basis these earnings of the American  company prior to the advent of, the  British-Canadian Asbestos for the year  ending June 1st, 1908:  Tons [  5.344  Gross, receipts $289,417  Operating expenses      208,691  Net profits     $80,726  By contrasting these figures with  those of .the same company when operated as the British-Canadian Asbestos company, which began in June of  last year, the profitable scope of the  still larger corporation becomes manifest:  l    Six months to November 30, 1908.  Tons  4.16��  jGross receipts      $243-563  Operating expenses        208,691  "   Net profits    $102,263  , If. the net profits' be so much on  4,,i6o tons,, it is plain thiat the total  possible from, 65,165 tons makes the  asbestos merger an interesting one.  '' Under individual go-as-you-please  auspices, the yearly'profit on a'turn-'  oyer of $289,417 was 27-89 percent.  4fter the initial combination, the six  months' triai run of the Canadian Asbestos company showed net profits of  41.98 per. cent.. The-prevalent depression in the latter'part of 1,907 and  earlier months of 1908 may have influenced this comparison, b��t it'would  not have done so to the extent in evidence. At any rate, the demonstration warranted the increase in the British Canadian Asbestos, company $1,-  000,000 share capital by the issue of  $1,000,000 in 5 per cent, twenty-five  year bonds, a further $500,000 being  held in reserve. On this side of the  Atlantic this bond issue was unannounced. The Bank of Scotland and  the London Joint Stock Bank received the authorisation to dispose of  $700,000 of these bonds at 05, and as  this feature is contained in a prps-  pectus bearing date February 20th,  and emanating from' Kitcat, Mortimer  &  Aitken,   the   financing  of   what is  about to he a subordinate concern  within the Amalgamated Asbestos corporation evidently was somewhat concurrent with the formation oi the latter. ������������ .."Tv-vr..  It is apparent that project growing  out of the American company and  evolving into the British Canadian  " tasted like more," as the small boy-  remarked, for. the London prospectus  also contains the following optomistic  representation, which will be in the  natuie of a revelation to those who  have ignored the importance of 'Quebec's asbestos.     <> ���'<  "Thus," speaking of the half yearly  returns already quoted, "during the  first six months, the year's interest on  the outstanding bonds, viz , $50,000,  has been earned more than twice over..  Our estimate of net profits for the full  year, June 1st, .1,908, to June 1st, 1909,  is $170,000.  " From certain additions to the machinery in the mills, and now being installed, the gross and net earnings will  be increased 33 1-3 per cent, in the  year beginning June ist, 1909.  "The company's output is sold  under regular'contracts, most of which  are for five-year periods. The. terms  are cash f.o.b. cars at company's mills.  " Production ; is simple, being^ from  open pit work or quarries. The ore is  hoisted out in boxes by means of cable ways and placed in cars at the surface which run to the mills over tramways by gravity. The ore is crushed,  dried and pulverized, the fibre sucked  away from the refuse by the vacuum  pipes as it passes over shaking screens.  The fibre is blown into dusting and  grading machines, from..which it is delivered into bags for shipment,  "The mills of the company have a  capacity of 550 tons per day. Mill  No. 1, recently completed, has a capacity of 350 tonsj mill No. 2 has a  capacity of ,200 tons. Power to operate the mills and works, is furnished  by the Sh'awinigan Water & Power  Co., whose transmission lines are built  here, a distance of 90 miles.  " The' company has 14 developed  pits, six of which are in operation at  the present time. The company owns  its own private railway sidings, and, in  addition to other equipment, three  high-power locomotives, 60 freight cars  and about three miles of railway connecting all the workings with the mills',  also 50 modern dwelling houses, which  are rented to employes."  The trustees for the bondholders  are: Henry M. Whitney, of Boston,  president of the company; Hon. Robert Mackay, E. B. Greenshiels.Thomas  McDougall, William McMaster, Harry  A. Berwmd, Howard E. Mitchell. The  treasurer and general manager is Edr  ward Slade, Black Lake, P. Q.  Statistician McLeish, of the Ottawa  Mines department in submitting the  latest data, remarks - that " Canada  practically supplies the world's markets. There is no important production outside of> this country." What  is more pertinent, perhaps, is that it le-  flects the Canadian attitude toward  some of the mineral resources of the  country, is offered by Supt. Obalski, of  the ' Quebec Department of Mines.  Referring to the total output for 1908,  be writes: "Our figures summarizing  the reports of the mining companies  represent the quantity shipped, and.we  may say, practically exported, as there  is very little in Canada used in that  form (the crude)."  According to: this, the United States  takes 78 per cent, of the asbestos,  Great Britain r3, arid Germany 841.  In 1907 the United States imported to  the value of $1,304,480, or 78.15 per  cent, of what was sent away by Canada. For the first time there was a  falling off in 1908 in the exports to  the United States, the estimated value  being $r,100,000, or. 59 per cent, ol  the total. It is apparent, however, in  the plans for the merger in hand, that  more extended operations are contemplated, that cheaper power is to be  supplemented by perfected concentrated plants.  -DANNY DEANE, Proprietor.

This occurred  in England, and many English doctors  tried in vain to heal the sore.    At one  time I  was an  in patient at the East  Suffolk hospital for a long period, and  for three years  I   was in  and  out of  hospitals.    I  was continually in pain,  and the sore would not heal, but continued to discharge.    Twelve  months  ago I came out  here to  my daughter,  and during the voyage I had to keep  my bed.    The ship's doctor examined  my leg, and gave me a plaster, which  I had to take off ngiin, as it. made the  pain so intense.    When I reached my  daughter's house, she sent for a medical man, who said nothing could ever  do it any good,  and  although I tried  other American doctois, they did "me  "0  good.    They   said   my leg would  never be well.  "One day my youngest daughter  brought home a box of Zam-Buk, and  induced me to try it. With the first  application I seemed to find ease, and  further treatment with Zam-Buk did  me so much good that I sent for a.  proper supply. J kept on with the  Zam-Buk treatment, and soon saw that  "i'- wound was getting better. Th"  discharge was reduced, and ihe pain  was eased. 1 persevered with the ���Zain-  ���itik, and, to cut a long story short, it  effected a cure. It is marvellous to  "'ink that, after suffering for sixty  years, ZamTBuk has been able to make  my leg perfectly sound "  Zain Biik is a combination of power  al!d puijty. Purely herbal, it is superior to all known remedies for  chronic sores and wounds, eczema,  salt-rheum, ringworm, eruptions, varicose ulcers, cuts, burns, bruises, skin  diseases.

The Massey estate, Toronto, has  offered to donate $25,000 to church  educational work in British Columbia,  contingent upon the Methodists of this  province raising $75,000 to supplement  the fund.

This is a  very strong statement, it is true, but it  reflects the opinion of some of the largest interests in the trade who hayebeeh  interviewed by< the writer during the  past week. Even -higher prices than  the above have been talked but 15  cents is a fair average.  In support of such optimistic predictions we have but to look over the  data at hand. It is a fact that during  the last ten days, the United Metals  Selling Co. has sold over 50,000,000  pounds of electrolytic copper at prices  that averaged something over 12.80  per pound and within a day or two  they have done business on a basis of  13 cents. Not only that but within a  day or two they have practically announced that they were out of the  market for futures, being sold up to  July and being unable to quote prices  beyond that time. This of course  means that they are sure of a substantial  advance in price during the coming 60  days and they are anxious to hold off.  The other big producers and selling  agencies are in much, the same position  and so strong is the demand at the  present time that it will be impossible  to keep the  price down   any  longer.  The Calumet and Hecla people have  put their price up to 13^ cents and  the other Lake companies are quickly  following suit. Osceola and Tamarack  copper is quoted at about the same  price and there is no pressure to sell  even at that figure.  ',. All the signs therefore indicate that  the surplus stock over which there has  been so much discussion recently will  be practically wiped put; during the  coming month if indeed it has not already been cleaned up. Once the consumers see this stock out of the way  there will be a wild scramble for supplies. Even now we hear many of  the large consumers complaining as to  their inability to get all the copper they  want and when it gets to that point the  strength of the market's position is  pretty well established.���-Copper Cuib.
