I-  /  With   the   mines  of the Province  ���now distributing in dividends about  '$200,000 tfnlonth, and earning profits of over $400,000 a month, it can  be stated positively that the mi.ieraj  industry has safely passed the period  of trying out the mineral, resources  experienced in every young  mining  country, and is now on the road   lo  continue increase of production and  earning of increased profits*.      With  the addition of tbe new 400-ton cop-  per furnace at Trail smelter, and the  -new   2000-ton ' smelter   at Granby  Bay, there is every promise lhat the  production next year will show   the  greatest advance in its history, "or a  gain of about 30 per cent,   over the  current year.  .This increased production   means  increased employment of labor;   increased purchases of mining machinery; increased trade for the merchants  of the cities;  increased   revenue, for  the ..provincial   treasury.    There  is  no healthier sign  of progress.    The  mining men of British Columbia wish  to   keep  the industry clean" and free  from the  Wildcat  flotations  of the  deposits* of rich ores. The experience of lode mining, of twenty years  h-as taught the mining men of the  province that their problems are  mainly industrial or tbe handling of  low���grade pre under the most economic and skillful conditions to make I  mining a success.  .The history of the Granby and  British Columbia Copper companies  is an excellent demonstration of this  condition. These companies have  successfully handled ores running  less than one per cent, copper under  mining and inetallurgical conditions  to complete with any thing in the  world's mining experience.  When strikes of high grade ore  are reported, experience here has  shown that, with the exception of  the silverlead ores, such deposits are  j    B.C.

Roberts, provincial ���   mineralogist,    is   the   steady  development  and   the   decrease   of  "Wild-catting." It is   the   minerals  and not the investors that are being  mined today.

Frederick  Dayton,   living    at  Viking,   Alta.  Dayton lost,his life the latter part of  May, 1912, in saving William Kirk-  patrick, a neighboring farmer, from  death in a- well.

Reaching    Kirkpatrick,    who     lay  crumpled 40 feet   from  the ^surface  and unconscious from the fall, Dayton tied the rope -around   his  waist  and had the man hauled1 to the  top.

This heroic sacrifice happened  in an   out-of-the-way   placed  but in some way the details reached  the   hero  fund   commission,   which  made an' investigation into thc facts  with the foregoing result.  ���Y$.
