C,  SATURDAY, NOV. 27,  1915  "M"���!!  mmaBtasaaeamoa  NUMBKR 20  Price of Copper Reviewed  An, authority   on   copper   in   the  Canadian Mining Journal says:  " "In spite of^he large  production  which manifested   itself for  several  years   prior   to   the    war,    it    was  established that bardfy more copper  appeared on the   market   than   was  actually   necessary  to    supp'v    the  heeds of the world.     In   1912   there  was an increase in the world's   production of 267,000,000 pounds over  1911. still the average price of 'cupper in. 1912 was 16.3 cents per pound  and in 1913, 15.2 cents  per  pound.  The average price of copper for  the  past   30 years   has   been   over    14  cents per pound.    .For the   past   15  yearn the price of cop'per   has   been  slightly in excess  of   15   cents   per  pound.     This is  a   good   indication  of the price at   which   the   producer  in the long rim can afford to sell his  product.     For protracted periods   it  rnay  be   recalled   that   in   the   year  i906 copper averaged 19 7 cents per  pound and that in the year 1907 the  price of copper averaged 20.8 cents  per pound.     Even setting aside   the  abnormal  amount   of    copper    re-  cjuired for export on account of the  War, which it should be pointed out  is to   a   large   extent   actually   destroyed, we have a condition   calling  ; for a high average price   of copper,  because all signs   point_to  greater  activity in industrial lines   generally  than existed during the period when  the   15-cent  and    16-cent    average  obtained."  Cattle Rustler Arrested  The'.Bridesyilje-Myncaster neighborhood   experienced   a    ripple    of  excitement at the close of last  week  when tlie provincial authorities   unearthed   some  beef hides    from    a  straw pile at the Lightley place, and  placed Albe/t ��.i'ghtley under   arrest  for having-the hides of stolen   cattle  in his possession.    The  Steve   herd  was short to the extent indicated by  the hides in'y-Lightley's   possession,  and Sunday it was alleged   Lightley  turned king's  evidence  upon   being j  taken before the court in Greenwood  and shifted the burden of the matter  on the shoulders   of Tom   Donald,  the Bridesville hotel   man,   alleging  that    the   cattle    were   stolen     for  Donald.     Sunday evening the arrest  of Donald   followed.     He   was   acl  milted to $2500 bail   to   appear   for  trial   December    1.

Deceased had been sick  since August, and although her recovery was not expected, still, news  of her death came as a shock to all.  Mrs. Munro was a M.

Funeral services will be held from  the Presbyterian manse at 11 a.m.  Saturday.  During her residence here deceased endeared herself to all with  whom she came in contact.

Potentially   British   Colambia    is  one ofthe greatest provinces in the  Dominion,   and . at   this   juncture,  when a ton of lead is being hurled a  mile  for  every   man. killed,   it  behooves us to pause  for  an   instant  and consider the sourse of her greatness.    Farming  interests   play    no  part, hence   we   must  turn   to   her  natural   resources;   mines,    timber  -:r--aad.nsherves.-,,The.last two require  unstinted capital, and many  phases  confront  investigators  as   to   their  importance.   ���*  The Almighty   Dollar  has    ever  will crash together and bring  about  a noisesome reign of chaos and  old  night?   _��   Retrospect of known mining  camps, be their output talcum,  diamonds or metal, has been attended with two factors in their ultimaU*  development: (1) Loss of millions  by original locators through lack of  capital; (2) "wild-catting."  Listed stocks of reputable mining  concerns are redolent with the vis-  situdes of the game; nevertheless,  loss to a few has been conducive of  millions made, for quick ventures  hurried rapidly to a point issues that  otherwise would have remained in  obeyance.  .Particularly true of mining is the  saying that "mineral is where you  find it." Thus it is readily seen  that original locators are little more  than pawns, requiring the kings of  finance to help win. J  What was true of Cobalt and   the  diamond fields of South  Africa  was  true  of  future   camps.    Groups  of  claims were bought at a   reasonable  price and developed,    The fact that  owners of original worthy properties  received less   than   he   who   sold   a  calcite vein  for a round   sum   later  mattered  little.    The   end   was  attained���capital was interested.  British      Columbia     offers      the  same opportunities  that  existed   in  the  aforementioned;    but    locators  must remember that the   magnitude  of operations conceived by operators  are beyond their ken.     What seems  a short price individually for a group  of claims is very often a   long  price  when taken collectively, and   would  be prohibitive of development.  Operation of a fewgroups by companies in a remote section i.s resultant  of benefits not usually attained by  prospectors.  Singular though it may seem,  good properties are today laying dormant because individual owners  refuse to cooperate. Even though  a fair price be offered by investors,  the locator sits tight, and viewing a  rich vein he is afraid to work less it  peters out and he be unable to trace  the lead, sits in senile dementia,  conjuring of pleasures to be attained  in a fool's paradise.

Seventy cents per capita of population, men, women and children,  was Canada's contribution toward  Hie support of soldier's families during the first year of the war.  The following tables show the  contributions by provinces during  the first year and the estimated requirements by provincesduririg the  second year.  First Year-- Contributions by  Provinces to September 30,' 1915:  Maritime Provinces, population  900,000, amount- raised $325,000,  per capita contribution, 36c.  , Quebec, population 2,100,000,  amount raised $1,675,000, per capita  contribution 80c.

The mountains throughout its entire Iengthand 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 accessible 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 ofthe smallest outlay.    Not the least attraction from  the point of  v.ew 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 d.scovery in Greenwood, while in the same  district  is to   be seen one of the  best equ.pped free gold properties in the. west, a not inconsiderable asset in these day*  of mdustnal depression and shrinkage of gold reserves.     It is in this district where is  situated-the Bhoenix and Grand   Forks  properties  of the  Granby Consolidated, together with those of the British Columbia Copper company.    In the former camp, and '  surrounding ,t 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 Tf proof is wanted  ofthe  statement, let us point to the almost entire absence of mining litigation in the courts  ofthe province.  AGRICULTURE AND FRUIT-GROWING CENTRE  The possibilities ofthe 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 locality is better served with railroads than the Boundary district,  present this section is '.served^ by two of the greatest systems on the continent, the  C, P.

In the light  of the incident, is it stretching a  point too far to assume that the  hurried execution of Miss Cavell  was a miserable reprisal on the part  of the German satrap for the arrest  and detention of his brother by the  British authorities.
