T Miller, the Purchaser, says  Prospects Good in Phoenix���  Purchase Price, $4,000.  Real   estate   in    Plioenix  is anything1 but  a drug on   thc market if  the property happens  to be located  in   the  right  locality.     About   two  years ago   Sam Matthews  acquired  at a  very   low   figure   the property  adjoining* the store of Al. Almstrom  and the club billiard rooms, and ha��  now    disposed;': of;" it  ' to   J.    T.  Miller of  Butte,   Montana,   for the  sum of $4000,  considerably  in  excess   of the   figures   he   purchased  with.    That the  deal   is not out of  reason   from   a   purchasing standpoint  is   evident  from   Mr. Miller's  statement   in   which   he   says   that  after   visiting   many    of  the    lilcely  towns of Alberta and British Columbia,   Phoenix   appeared    to   him   to  offer the chance for which he was in  search   of.     The admission   of Mr.  Miller is  backed   up   every day by  the  inimeious drummers who  daily  pass  through   the  town   and unanimously declare   that Phoenix is the  most    promising  and. stable    community   outside of the  coast cities.  That this statement i.s by no means  extravagant    is   evidenced    by   the  fact that Phoenix camp is   the home  of 2000 people   and   has two   of the  largest   copper-gold    mines    within  its* boundaries running at full blast,  the     combined     payrolls    of   which  total nearly $70,000 per, month.  Possibly more men will be actively engaged in the,Stewart River valley this winter than lor many years.  ' Th'eropcnihg oFricli"'pay'dtrScroggie"  -is a great incentive. The government road which w.t. put through  there this summer has opened the  way for prospectors to geL into lhe  heart of a number of good gold-bearing streams hitherto inaccessible.  City Band Dance  The regular attendance at practice which has characterized the  members of the city band for some  months past has borne good fruil,  and   the   advance   made   has   been  1  most   favorably    commented   upon  not only  by local  critics, but by the  members   of the   musical   world   of  other  out-lying towns.      As  far  as  the matter of instruments   goes the  organization   is    fairly   well   off,   a  BB  bass  and   three   b  flat  comets  having only   recently   been   added.  At  present   the   attention    of    the  band committee js directed  to the  matter   of   providing   suitable  uniforms,   and   on   American   Thanksgiving the, first of a series of dances  willy be  given   for  the   purpose  of  raising     funds     for   this '��� purpose.  Although   considerable   money   has  already been   expended  on   the purchase  of instruments,   music,   etc.,  there  is still  a balance  on the right  side   of over   ninety   dollars.    The  band is not only a worthy institution,  but a valuable asset to the   city and  deserving  of every  assistance from  the people.  SPECIAL MEETING OF  GRANBY DIRECTORS  Number 17  Convertible Bond Issue Not Considered ��� Ample  Funds for  Hidden Creek Purposes.  B. C. Mining1  Boundary Ore Tonnages  Following are the' returns  of the  output   of  the   Granby   mines   and  smelters for the week ending Nov.  3rd, and year to date:  Granby 24,214 1,046,274  SMELTER TONNAGES  Granby 24,702*1,051,447  Colin Fraser of London, England,  formerly chief geologist for the  geological survey of New Zealand,  is in the Slocan district examining  some of the Slocan mines.  At a special meeting ofthe  direc-  1  tors   of  the   Granby    Consolidated  Mining, Smelting & Power company held in New York this week it  was decided to continue the development and equipment of-'the plant  and property at Hidden Creek put  of the earnings of the company. "',s  The question of making a convertible bond issue was not considered.  Ilwas stated that the company has  ���ample funds on hand to continue ihe  work without resorting to a bond  issue.  After Lhe meeting ofthe directors  William H. Nichols, president of the  company, made the following statement: t  "We have instructed our people  at the Hidden Creek property to go  ahead with the construction of the  plant which will have a capacity of  2000 tons a day as rapidly as possible. This plant will be financed 01ft  of the earnings of the company,  which willjmean that dividends will  be delayed for a while.  We have expended so far about  $500,000 and it is estimated that  bout $1,520,000 will be required to  complete the plant and equipment.  This money we have on hand so  that a bond issue is unnecessary.  "Developments at the property  are very   good. ,      ,We   have   about  Wm. Miline, of Vancouver, came  down from Poplar creek Friday and  reports that a very fine showing of  silver-lead ore has been uncovered  on the Golden Gate Mining company's property, of which he is  manager.  Gold shipments to thc Vancouver  Assay office during the past week  have been exceedingly large. There  is now on hand in the office more  than half a ton of gold in bars ranging from small bricks* to large ingots. .Most of this gold came from  the placer mines of BritishjColumbia.  A small portion-is from stamp mills  of the province, while the remainder  is from the northland; including the  Yukon and Alaska.  G. S. Maltoch, of the Dominion  geological survey, Ottawa, who has  just returned from the Groundhog  Basin, a new coal field in the north,"  says: "The field is hardly so .extensive as at first supposed and it is  somewhat cut by faulting. There  promises, however, to be an enormous tonnage available for mining.  The coal can be described as an  anthracite, picked samples running  from 8-3 to 85 per cent in fixed  carbon. One Vancouver company  which is doing quite'a lot of development work will keep a party of  workmen there during the entire  winter.  The find in the Rodney drift (1G50-  Leaves For The East  Omar Cote,   manager of the dry  goods     department     of     Morrin,  Thompson   &  Co., severed his connection  with   Phoenix  on  Wednesday,   when    he   boarded   the   local  passenger    en    route   for   Buffalo,  New   York,   and  his   home   in   the  east.     It is also whispered that after  nn important event  has taken place  he will leave for Los Angelos, where  he has secured a  lucrative appointment with an  automobile company.  Mr. Cote arrived  in  Phoenix about  two years ago,   and from  the first,  owing   to his  ability  and   courtesy  became     very     popular   with    the  patrons ofthe  big store, while few  social events were complete without  the   presence   of    the    "gentleman  from Quebec."    The -great majority  in   Phoenix were unaware  of his intention   to   leave   us,   but   the best  wishes of  his friends  in   the British  Columbia mountains will follow him  to his   new   home  under   the sunny  skies of California.  INVESTS A THOUSAND  DOLLARS IN BUILDING  Granby Company Decides to Assist  Undertaking;���Work  Making Good Progress  Division II Wins the Pennant  The banner for Lhe largest attendance percentage for the month of  October was  captured   by   Division  II with a percentage of 92. Division  1 was a close second with 90j while  the   youngest scholars   of   Division  III totalled up 86 per cent., which  latter, considering the extraordinary  weather seems very satisfactory.  Following are the names of the  pupils who   had perfect attendance:  The funds for the erection of the  combined curling and skating rink  for Phoenix, were considerably  augmented last week, when the  news was received that the Granby  Consolidated had very generously  decided to assist the project by investing the sum of $1000. , The  news of the company's decision is  extremely welcome and caused quite  a flutter of excitement among the  townsfolk, who in the matter of  hockey have few rivals in the province in their enthusiasm for that  popular pastime. O. B. Smith, jun.,  who is mainly .responsible, for the  company's action is deserving of  considerable praise, his interest in  the realm of healthy sport being  proverbial throughout the entire  boundary country.  Interviewed   the other day,  Les.  Connell,   who   is   in   charge   of  the  building operations, said that so far  there   had   been    little  interference  with   the   work  on   account   of the  snow, which  he   thought would not  greatly   impede   matters.      The   installment   of  waterpipes   was commenced  this week and  on "Wednesday a   shipment   of timbers arrived  which will be ample .for foundation  purposes.

The  high precious metal values added  materially to the net profits for the  month which were $181,000, or at  the rate of $14.50 a share per  annum.  The authoritative Boston Commercial still adheres to its* optimism  concerning Granby's future prospects and appears to be more than  usually well informed as to happening here in Phoenix and Hidden  Crock. The following i.s culled  from the current issue:  "At the end of next year, the  Granby should have between $1,-  000,000 and $1,500,000 on hand for  working capital. Thereafter the  company's net earnings per share  annually, with copper selling at  various prices, should be about as"  follows:  George A.   Clothier,   superintendent ofthe Indian Mines, visited the  property for a few   days   this   week  and found everthing satisfactory except the snowfall, there being about  eighteen inches of the   "beautiful"  at about   2,000-ft.   altitude.       The  main tunnel is now in a   distance of  190 feet and the vein is being crosscut at the face of the tunnel,   show-j  ing at present a width   of  ten   feet.  The main filling ofthe vein is quartz,  throughout which is scattered galena  and' iron   carry   good   values.     On  the hanging wall outside the quartz  there is from one   to   three   feet   of  fairly clean     galena    in which    the i  values  are   principally   silver   and  "It is anticipated,   therefore, that j lead, the gold values seemingly   are  Pi-ice of (*���<>  PlR-l'  learnings pm- slum  ISc  $27.00  17c  .$24.00  16c  $21.00  \:>v.  $18.00  lie.  $.15.00  1 :*..'.  $12.00  Should not only  be attractive in  design, but it  should Fit perfectly and be  made faultlessly.

Anderson,    chief  Dominion Forestry Service  The forestry   branch  of  the   Department of the Interior has  had   a  number of  parties   out   during  the  past season continuing the examination of the   unexplored   districts   to  find out   the  supply  of  timber  on  Dominion Lands and determine the  lands which should be reserved per-  mently for timber purposes.    These  parties are generally  in charge   of  graduates of the   Forest   School   of  the University of Toronto.  The work  for the season is   almost  completed  and the parties   are   now   returning  from the field.     Two of the   parties  have already reported.  Mr. S. H.

The  season was wet, and, as the district  was found to be covered largely   by  muskeg, the examination of it   was  difficult.     The muskegs were almost  impassable, and the   few   trails that  were found are in bad condition.     In  spite of the condition   of the   trails  quite a large number of people were  going in to Fort McMurry to locate.  It had been   reported   that   there  was considerable large timber north  of Lac LaBiche, but the examination  brought out the fact, which" has too  that   the  small  u  No Other Hosiery  Offers .This-7-  for  Foot-clothing that fits with absolute perfectioi  'reasons you will readily see if you'll glance at the  picture here . . . the only hose made that is perma  nently shaped to the foot and leg, and that is both  Seamless  and  Snug-Fitting  You would not think of buying hoso with a scam up tho front  of tho leg ... . wouldn't'that.be ugly and uncomfortable?

I tried all the BO-called remedies that were recommended, but they seemed to  do me no good. Having been advised to try Zam-Bnk, I purchased a fif fcy-cent  box and after applying it a few times I fell: marked relief. I continued with  the Zam-Buk treatment and tbe relief was extended into a permanent cure.  MR. "WILLIAM KENTY, of Upper Nino Mile River, Hants Co., N.

I was tired of trying remedies whon I heard of Zam-Buk, and thought as a last  resource I would give this balm a trial. I procured a supply, and after a very  short time Zam-Buk effected what several other ointments and medicines had  failed to effect���a complete cure."  Zam-Buk also  cures    ECZEMA.

The mines at Granby Bay already have the stupendous total of 4,500,000 tons of rich copper ore  "in sight" and the mining carried on in the winter  of 1911-12 proved the wealth of the properties beyond guess-work. The ore now in sight will keep  the smelter busy 75 years. Think of it! And this  not   taking  into account  various  other adjoining  Froperties, some under option to the Granby Co.  t is estimated that the Granby Co. can produce  copper here for 23 cents a ton cheaper than at its  Grand Forks smelter. When the big smelter is  completed the total investment of the Granby Co.  here is expected to be nearly two millions and that  over 1,000 men will be employed here.  When you consider the fact that today two bustling cities in British Columbia .are almost entirely  supported by the payrolls of this company���Phoenix  and Grand Forks���you can get an idea what Granby  B*ey will be.  Granby has a good deep-water harbor and today  the G. T. P., the C. P. R. and the Union Steamship Company operate regular steamers to this point.  Granby Bay i.s going to bo a Payroll Town. And  that is the kind oi' a town that is always "up and  doing." A conservative estimate places the number of men to be employed at .1,000 and their  monthly payroll at about $100,000, without figuring  on any other industries outside of the properties  and smelter of the Granby Co.  Grasp those facts!  Granby Bay is in the very heart of a developed,  fabulously rich copper mining district.  Granby Bay has a smelter owned by a formidable  commercial giant, the Granby Company.  Granby Bay will have an immense payroll every  month.  Granby Bay must have have a population of over  1,000 people.  Granby Bay is a seaport.  Granby Bay can produce copper cheaper than in  places where big profits are made from mining and  smelting.  Every lot in Granby Bay i.s a gilt-edged investment.

McKay & Sons  Proprietors  The Central Hotel  NEAREST HOTEL TO FAMOUS GRANBY MINES  German Military Instructors  Field Marshal Von Der Golz, the  chief of the  German  General staff,  who is reported to be mainly responsible for the   "rejuvenation"   of the  Turkish    soldier,   has    not,    in   the  light of recent events, accomplished  much to be proud of, particularly in  the matter of organization.      But in  spite of his  great  failure, the civilized world owes him and his assistants   an   everlasting debt  of   gratitude for  the   work he didn't do and  which   has made it  possible   for the  armies of the Cross to triumph over  the   motley  legions of the Ottoman  Crescent.     It  would   seem  that we  have placed  too  much stock in the  German   military   system.      During  the Zulu war it became a fixed maxim with the German  lieutenant that  he was the  equal  in military intelligence of a British lieutenant-colonel  of the line, but the uprising in German West Africa forced our warlike  cousins     to      quickly     alter   their  opinion on the matter, and as in the  case of the lieutenant, so it is in the  matter     of    generals,    the    much-  vaunted German military system has  not come up  to expectations, while  the criticism by the American officers  of German army tactics have  been  amply justified  by the  recent disasters to the Turkish arms.  During   the   iniquitous    reign   of  the "great assassin," Abdul Hamid,  the   deposed  Sultan  of Turkey, the  German Emperor made a somewhat  pompous  pilgrimage  to Jerusalem,  and in  thanking the Ottoman monarch  for  certain  courtesies   on   the  trip,   referred    to    the   blood-guilty  scoundrel      as      "my    friend      the  Sultan," and if the press reports are  to be relied upon,   the war   lord has/  not lost   any   of his  affection for the  royal exile,   for in order" to show his  fondness he  has   ordered  a German  ship to   be  on   hand   to   remove  to  safety,   what  "VV. E. Gladstone apt  ly described  as  the   "incarnation of  hell's worse type."    The Kaiser has  even asked  the  Almighty's blessing  on   Abdul,   and iti   a  speech piously  remarked   "God   Bless the Sultan,"  a  sentiment that was received with  Lorro'r    throughout    the    Christian  world, and evoked from Dr. Parker  in   one  of  his   sermons,   the  retort,  "God    Damn     the     Sultan,"     his  immense congregation rising as one  to   show  their  sympathy   with   the  eminent  divine.       The   Kaiser   has  professed   his   friendship   for   many  strange people, but his   love for the  great murderer  "passeth all understanding."   *$.   degree unheard of. Never can the  "legitimate" theatre hope to reach  as many people in a week as the  moving picture film reaches in a  day. "The great mass'of people now  has its playhouse, which may be  nothing more than a made-over  storeroom. As soon as the moving  picture man begins to turn the  crank, all the joys of the world are  flashed before the observer's eyes.  To keep this great educational force  clean, should be one of the objects of  the state. America has taken the  lead in film production, which  speaks well /or the tendencies of  moving picture audiencies, for most  of the American fims are clean and  breathe of the outdoors. Such a  vast force for public good or evil  should be kept above reproach. Infinite capacities for good or evil  lurk in the "movies," and the evil  should not be allowed to creep in.  ERVOUS, LIFELESS  DEBILITATED KEEN  Rise in Precious Stones  "Diamonds  are  dearer,   and  the  cost of all  precious stones is rising.  Last week there was an  increase of  from 5 to   10 per cent in   the cost of  all   precious   stones,    the   price   of  which  during   the past   month  has  risen    fifteen    per   cent.     These increases are likely to continue," says  a prominent British importer.    "The  ever-growing demand for diamonds  i.s exceeding the supply.     There are  thus   smaller    supplies    at   bigger  prices.       The    demand    from    the  United States  is  very great.     During  the   last   ten   years   the   prices  have advanced 300 per cent.    The  making     of    colored     stones   and  fashionable   sapphires   has  gone up  fifty per cent.     Emeralds   are  much  more expensive,   while pearls have  become enormdusly costly."  There   are   over   100 oil  burning  locomotives in B. C.  READER  Has your b.

Motion Pictures  One of the most important departments of public entertainment  is that provided by moving- picture  shows, says the Victoria Colonist.  They afford pleasure to many thousands, to whom more expensive entertainments Vire closed by reason  of expense. There may be objections to them on the score of their  affect upon the eyes, but they do not  appear to be very serious. At  least, after a number of years' experience, the. medical profession has  made no very earnest representations on that score. This beinsjf the  case, it must be admitted that whatever can supply thc public with a  cheap, informative, and amusin-r  entertainment is worthy of encouragement.       In   this  connection   the  following    observations     from    the  ��� I  Denver Republican are timely:  Hut   beyond    the    revolution   the |  motion   picture   has  worked  in   the  matter of optics, conies the development  ofthe   "movies" as  means of  entertainment.
