Forging  Underground development and  surface improvements to cost not  less.than a million dollars are beirig  considered in plans for operating its  extensive holdings in this province  by the B.C. Copper Co., according  to a statement made recently by Oscar Lachmund, general manager of  the company, who has returned to  Greenwood from a business trip to  Portland and San Francisco, in company with H. D. ' Qui iri by, for some  lime associated with the management of. the Jewel mine, hut now  attached to the engineering staff of  the B.C. Copper.  According to Mr. Lachmund, it is  planned to erect a concentrator with  a daily capacity of 2000 tons at the  Copper   Mountain   property   i'n  Ihe  Similkameen.    This will cost half-a-  miilion,' and will be  operated by  a  power plant either at  Coalmbnt or  Princeton, to cost $300,000.    In the  event of the Kettle Valley Railroad  not  continuing   its   line to the property,   the   B.C.   Copper   will   con  struct an; aerial tram   line from the  camp   to   Princeton,   a  distance  of  about nine miles. "   ���  "We have the ore tonnage to assure sufficient revenue to justify the  building of the lifiej" said Mr. Lachmund, "and it probably will be. constructed. We have eight million  tons of ore proven at Copper Mountain that will run 1.75 per cent cop  per, with a probable additional reserve-of two million tons of ore of  the same grade. The ground has  been extensively explored by diamond drills, and we are ready to  begin permanent development ' at  anytime. We did 28,000 feet of  diamond drilling last year, besides  . opening- an r extensive-series-of'surface trenches, ' pits and ^ shallow  shifts, and we have three diamond  drills, operating now, each making  about 33 feetv daily. This has demonstrated the existence of enough  ore to 'justify construction of the  concentrator, power plant and tram-  pally from Lode  mine'  and the Lone  Star.     We are working a hundred   men   at .the, former, ! . .,    ,      "  25 at  the   Lone   Star and 55 at the |     Coronation  smelter, where we <ire operating but ( creek  one furnace on account of ore shortage.

September  22nd, when Miss Isabel Jackson,  second daughter of Thos. Jackson,  was united to George L. McLeod of  Trail, by the Rev. J. Hackney. The  bride is a niece of Mrs. Robert  Christie, of Phoenix, who was also  present at the ceremony.  The couple were attended by Miss  Irene Beckman of Rossland and Mr.  Robert- McLeod, brother of the  groom. The ceremony took place  at the home of the bridegroom,  where a beautiful floral arch of  white asters and sweetpeas formed  part of the decorative scheme. The  bride, who carried a shower bouquet  of white carnations, was charmingly  attired in a gown of white silk crepe  de chine and wore a bridal wreath  of lilies of the valley.  After the wedding breakfast the  newly-married couple motored to  Rossland en route' for Spokane and  coast cities. The bride was the  recipient of many beautiful and useful gifts.  _ ��,   Sent For Trial  .  . ...

The  from surface operations and assays  indicate that the returns will exceed  those of any previous shipment.  ; A peculiar sample of ore was exf  hibited around town this week, and  it is said to closely resemble the  Missouri Rosin Jack, a very high  grade zinc ore from the "show me";  state. The sample seen here came  from the Monarch mine, at Field,  and ore of this sort .is rarely found-  in this country. It apparently derives its name of "Rosin Jack" from  a striking resemblanee to the resigfj  or rosin of commerce.���Kootenain��  An upraise^is being put through  between the lower and  upper" levels  ^officer stated that the per centage  of native-born Canadian troops was  20.

While  No Extension Just Yet  President  J.   J.   Warren:   of  the  Kettle   Valley    Railway    has    been  making a  tour  of the  Grand Forks  and   Similkameen  districts.     He is  credited with   the  statement that he  will recommend  the construction of  a spur, to   connect   the   system with  Voight and   Princess camps, where  the   British   Columbia  Copper company have extensive holdings.     The  hope   of   an   early   extension   of the  Kettle Valley line from Lynch creek  to the rich Franklin district was dissipated  last  week,   when Mr. Warren, ,in an interview with  a contemporary,   stated   that   ihere would be  no such move until tonnage was assured.     "He took this position," he  said,    "for   several   reasons���first,  self  interest,    in   that    the   railway  company   could   not  interest capital  to   invest   until   such   time   as they  could   assure    them   reasonable   returns.     Secondly,   that   if   the   railroad   was   extended,   and   proved a  failure, it would   be   a   detriment to  Grand Forks and   district instead of  a benefit,   in  that it would; lead the  outside investing public to doubt the  value of the   resources  of the north  fork."

The   ceremony   was   performed by the Rev.   Dr. Logan, assisted by the  Rev. Dr. K. J. Grant, ,  formerly  of Trinidad, B.W.I.    The  bride, who entered  the room on the  arm  of Dr. McDonald, wore a most  becoming   travelling   suit    of   navy  blue broadcloth, trimmed with,  and a large picture hat of black velvet with white ostrich mount.   Only  the immediate relatives  of the bride  and   groom    and     a   few   intimate  friends  were  present.     The  guests  were entertained  at supper by Mrs.  Logan, and   amid  showers  of good  wishes  and   rice, the  couple left on  the  night  boat  for Victoria.���Vancouver Province.

True,   the  holder of a ' free   miner's  licence has  onlyto   apply  for   a   permit   to kill  game, to have the request gratified,  but' the   permission    is    of   such  limited   character,    that    he    might  just as well do without it and invest  1  $2.50  for.   the full   privileges of  a  hunter.

Plans of a plot to seize Vancouver and other Pacific coast cities recently-appeared in a despatch to the  Rossland Miner. Details of the plan  are said to have been worked out  by Alvo von Alvensleben, a German  broker of Vancouver, who was in  Berlin when war was declared. The  information said to have been obtained by the authorities, is that  while in Berlin, Alvensleben cabled  to a Teutonic'friend in Vancouver^  asking him to call a meeting of  trusted Germans to start an agitation to invite the squadron of Admiral Von Spee to visit that town.  The kaiser's squadron was then in  Chinese waters.  Many committee meetings were  held, and if the arrangements had  culminated, the Gneisenau and  Scharnhorst would vprobably have  been in local waters when war broke  out, ready to take possession not  only of Vancouver, Victoria and  Prince Rupert, but the Vancouver  Island coal mines, in which German  capital was heavily interested. It  was also planned to control the  Pacific coast and the route to Vladivostok.  Canada produced "Jim" Hill and  the United States produced Sir  William   Van    Home.

One  scheme for circumventing^tlje nuisance was a secret order forbid.ding  every British officer to travel on 4  certain day, by street car or omni.  bus. When that day was over the  military authorities were extremely  pleased with the result for every  officer caught travelling on those  particular vehicles on that date was  a German agent. A little later the  same method was applied, only the  forbidden means of travel was the  labyrinth of underground .railroads,  and with very few exceptions, every  man wearing the uniform of a British officer caught travelling underground during the prohibited hours  was a German spy.   ��. . -  A narrow-minded woman is generally an awfully homely one. ���  in going straight to the weak  spot in treating disease ?

Boundary District of British Columbia  RICH   IN   MINERAL,   AGRICULTURAL AND   LUMBERING   POSSIBILITIES--  A MOST PROMISING FIELD FOR THE 1   VESTOR.  Probably no district in the Dominion of Canada possesses so great an array of  potentialities as the above. The mountains throughout its .entire length and breadth,  are almost without exception mineraliferous, containing gold, silver, copper, iron and  other, valuable ores, while in a few localities there are more tha surface indications  of the presence of coal.  ?    FOREST AND  MINERAL WEALTH  Its forest stretches are among the richest in the province, and what is of great  importance, easily accessable to river and railway. There is scarcely a square mile of  it that is not either equipped with high tension wires, or which could not be reached  by the expenditure of the smallest outlay. Not the least attraction from the point of  view of the investor, is the sites for water power, which abound in this district.  Just at present an immense amount of interest is being directed  to the recent  , free gold discovery in Greenwood, while in the same district is to be seen one of the  best equipped free gold properties in the west, a not inconsiderable asset in these days'  of industrial depression and shrinkage of gold reserves.     It is in this district where is  ' situated the Bhoenix and Grand   Forks  properties  of the Granby Consolidated, to-'  gether with those of the British Columbia Copper company.    In the former camp, and  surrounding it for miles on all sides, are acres of crown-granted mineral claims, all  awaiting the advent of the investor.    The title deeds to these properties, thanks to a  beneficent series of mining laws, are  unimpeachable, and if proof is wanted  of the .  statement, let us point to the almost entire absence of mining litigation in the courts  of the province.  AGRICULTURE AND FRUIT-GROWING CENTRE  The possibilities of the Boundary as, an  agricultural and fruit-growing centre  are also worthy of investigation, and  a visit  to  some   of its - spendidly equipped orchards will prove a revelation to the stranger.     The highways throughout the Boundary makes this section of the province the motorists paradise, millions having been  \ spent on'the construction of government roads.  '< No localityis better  served with  railroads  than  the  Boundary district.      At  r present this section  is  served by two  of the  greatest systems on the continent, the  4.C P. R. and Great Northern companies, while within a few months the route tothe  Pacific coast will be commercially curtailed by the opening of the new K. V. V.  branch of the former.  : ���$  '' I  f  m  2: >  I. O. O.

Canadian merchants are warned  in the weekly bulletin of the trade  and commerce department against  asrents of German firms in neutral  countries, trying to sell goods. A  case is cited of a Dutch firm, well  known to the British Board of  Trade, to be agents for German  goods, selling consignments of  crockery in Canada, but which are  suspected by the government to be  of German manufacture.  t- Adam Blooiufield, Noble Grand.

Carl Adeneur, Greenwood.  The Grand Forks fall fair sports  were brought to a close with a clash  by the home team with their old  opponents of Phoenix. The game  took place in the presence of a very  large crowd who were treated to a  hard fought game all through. Lus-  kie started for the Forks and pitched  a good game; he was given excellent support by his team mates  who were getting all the breaks.  Phoenix was hitting the ball all  over the lot but couldn't seem to  hit" 'em safe. Luskie was yanked  in favor of Sloan, a port side artist  in the ninth, when the score was  7-6 in favor of the home team, the  visitors got to Sloan, scored three  runs and cinched the game. Mcln-  tyre was again on the mound for  Phoenix and heaved in grand style.  He was handed some pretty, raw  decisions on balls and strikes, but  the south paw improved asthe game  went oh and held the Forks score-,  less after the third innings. He  was ably assisted at the receiving  end by. Phillips who caught one of  his best games this season.  Baumgarten   played  a fine  game  at  third   and    stopped   some  hard  drives that were sure labelled for  extra bases. The outstanding feature was probably the "come back"  ofQuance,a former Delhi boy; the,  latter's sensational fielding around  Ihe hot corner, and terrific clouting  brought the glad hand from the  crowd on many occasions. He was  really the star pla3'er of both teams.  Carson and McLeod of the home  bunch led in run getting as well as  hits with two of each. The Phoenix  boys all hit well but fielded rather  loose at times. Happy Murray  played a good fielding game and a  heavy clouter.was found in the person of Elmo Geddes. The umpires  were Messrs Keefe and Haverty.  and the following was the line-up:  Grand Forks���R McLeod c, Luskie p, Wilkinson lb, , Bush 2b;  Baumgarten 3b, Cook ss, Caghon r,  F C McLeod If.
