The annual report of the  company was submitted to the shareholders and unanimously adopted.  While the report shows* a slightly  smaller production of bullion during  the fiscal year ending June 30, 1907,  due largely to fuel shortage, if--also  shows" that" the" profits were a little  larger than the previous year, on  account of the increased price realized  for copper.  In his address to the shareholders,  lacob Langeloth, the president, of the  company, said:  The operations during the last business year show a very considerable  falling off as compared with the previous fiscal year, In spite of the fact  that the mines were prepared to furnish a very much larger tonnage and  the smelter fully equipped to handle  the same. This is due to the great  shortage of fuel throughout the West  in the past year; the railroads were unable to procure sufficient coal to operate their trains and the company  sufficient quantities of coke for their  furnaces.  In the British Columbia coal fields,  whence our supply of fuel is drawn,  there were two strikes, one last (all  and the other last spring, resulting in  the production of coke being seriously  interfered with and the output crippled  to such an extent that at no time could  the quantities contracted for be delivered. A very severe winter caused  blockades on all the railroads, which  irrespective of this, were hardly able to  take care of the largely increased  traffic. In order to relieve the situation temporarily, contracts were made  last October for about 20,000 tons of  eastern coke, which entailed an extra  expenditure of nearly $100,000, but  later in the season even these supplies  stopped on account of the railroads  being unable to make deliveries.  All these things interfered seriously  with the operation of the plant, and  the cost of mining, and especially  of smelting increased considerably.  The eight large lurnaces could be  operated only intermittently, and  during the month of May both mines  and smelter had to be closed down for  want of fuel. The output suffered  heavily, especially at the time when  the prices of copper were at the highest,  and this in turn precluded our receiving as high an average price for the  product as wouid otherwise have been  the case. All copper is sold at the  current prices ruling as soon as the  weight and assays are agreed upon  with the refiners, and no stocks are,  therefore, on hand.  It was estimated at the beginning of  the year, that, due to the greater  capacity of the smelter, the production  could be increased to about 25,000,000  pounds. Instead of this, only 16,403,-  749 pounds of copper were produced,  or about 3,250,000 pounds less than  the previous year. In spite of all  these adverse conditions, the net profits  are somewhat higher, but not at all in  harmony with what ought to or could  have been accomplished if the regular  supply of coke could have been secured. The cost per pound of copper  produced, after deducting the value of  gold and silver, was ^1014 during the  past year, against only .0S35 in the  preceding year. If the mines and  plants are operated to their full capacity, lower costs can again be confidently expected. At the smelter the  eight furnaces are now in shape 'to  handle over one million tons of ore p^r  year, which should; produce in the  neighborhood of 30,000,000 pounds of  copper per annum.     ,  Among the most important new  work undertaken and completed at the  mines was"trie sitikmg'or Uie~new"~VTc"  toria three compartment shaft, which  will be connected with the different  ore levels, and a complete electric  haulage system is being installed on  the 400-foot level. It is estimated to  hoist and crush 2,000 tons of ore daily  at this shaft alone. The shipping bins  are between the tracks ofthe Canadian  Pacific and Great Northern railways,  giving the additional advantage of  transportation to the smelter by two]  roads.  The Gold Drop and Monarch properties, acquired about two years ago,  have been developed vigorously, and  have proved very valuable to our holdings. Very large quantities of ore are in  sight and shipping facilities have been  provided to handle a large tonnage.  In a word, the mines are prepared to  produce practically any tonnage that  can be transported to the smelter,  where the entire eight furnaces have  been enlarged, and have now a maximum capacity of about 3,500 tens per  twenty-four hours.  One element of uncertainty in the  past���which at times crippled the work  ���has been eliminated. A contract  has been made with the South Kootenay Power Company for the supply of  electricity. The plant has been completed, and power in abundance is now  being furnished.  The question of securing regular  supplies of coke has been constantly  before your board, and after mature  d-'liberation, it was decided to acquire  a considerable interest in the Crow's  Nest Pass Coal Co, Ltd., from which  our main supply of fuel is secured.  The wisdom of this step has already  made itself felt, as for the last few  weeks a full supply of coke has been  furnished, thus overcoming the difficulties which, as already mentioned,  were very costly to tht company. The  vice-president and general manager of  the company, Mr. [ay P. Graves,  has been elected a member of the-  board of directors of the Crow's Nest  Pass Coal Co., Ltd.  The above mentioned expenditures  may make it advisable in the near  future to issue the treasury stock of  1 s,ooo shares of the par value of $100  each, in which event the same will be  uffered to the stockholders prorata to  their holdings, on terms still to be decided upon by the board.  Considering the lar^e quantities of  ore which have been developed during  the year, the board feels justified in  continuing its work of providing a  larger smelting capacity, but improvements of this kind lake a great deal of  time, and have to be laid out in a  careful way in order lo secure the most  economical treatment and best results.  During the year the shares of the  company were converted into $100  shares par value, by exchanging 10  shares of $ro each into one share of  $100. The new ' 1 .i-i-s have been  listed on the New  York   and   Boston  Life  of   Alex.   Dawson  Snuffed Out.  Early Tuesday morning Alex. Dawson was killed in a shoot in the Rawhide mine, being the first fatality that,  has ever occurred at that property.  Dawson was mucker boss, and had  been repeatedly ordered not to go up  into the shoots, it being well known to  be unusually dangerous. He persisted,  however, and this time a rock came  down and crushed him against the side  of the shoot, death having been instantaneous. To get his body out  some of the bulkheading had to be removed.  Dawson was a member of the  miners' union, and came to Phoenix a  year ago last May, having been first in  the employ ofthe Granby Co., and then  in that of the Dominion Copper Co.  He was a young man of some 23 years,  unmarried, and was a nativeof Huntly,  Aberdeenshire, Scotland. He had a  cousin living near Spokane, who was  notified of the sad fatality. The funeral  was held yesterday afternoon, under  the auspices of the miners' union, Rev.  Samuel Lundie attending.  Wednesday afternoon Coroner A S.  Black empanelled a jury to inquire  into the causes of death, the jury,  being C. W. Whittaker, John Black,  Norman McLeod, W. L. Mclnnes, V.  M. Sherbino, Geo. McNie and Robin  Nelson. After hearing the evidence  of witnesses, including that of William  Sampson, shift boss, to the effect that  Dawson had been repeatedly ordered  not to enter the shoots, the jury returned a verdict that Dawson was  killed by being crushed in the shoot  through disobeying orders.  J 3,000 Tons Increase  Over August.  Boundary Mining Notes  Boundary    Shipments    Now  Showing Better Total.  COMfNS AND GOING  Belter coke receipts generally at  the several smelting plants of the Boundary district are reflected in table  showing the figure of shipments from  the various shipping mines of the  Boundary, the total for September  lacing 138,060 tons, or over 13,000  tons in excess of the total for the  month of August, the improved situation from the coke receipt standpoint  being felt in the latter part of August.  In September Granby's record, which  is now operating at the fullest possible  capacity, was 20,000 tons of ore more  than for August, but both British  Columbia Copper and Dominion fell  lower over 5,000 tons each for September as compared with August.  Snowshoe, which ships to both Trail  and H. C. Copper, shows an .increase  of nearly 3,000 tons shipped in the j  last calendar month over August.  Shipments of ore from the various  mines during September are reported  to have been as follows, in tons:  74>677  22,956  Granby mines  ..     ...  B. C.

Fagan, of Victoria, provincial medical health officer, came in  Wednesday evening, and proceeded  next day to Greenwood.  John A. and Mrs. Morrin   returned j  late last week from Walla Walla, Wash.,  where Mrs. Morrin has   been   visiting  her sister (or some weeks.  J. P. Graves, general manager of the  Granby Consolidated, is in the east,  where he attended the annual meeting  of the company last week.  W. C. Thomas, manager of the Dominion Copper Co., returned this  week from a trip to Spokane, where he  went to meet Mrs. Thomas.  Mrs. W. C. Hower, of Mullan,  Idaho, who has been visiting her  mother, Mrs. Dawson, for some weeks,  returned to Mullan last Saturday.  Ralph Gilbert, who has been down  in Reno, Nevada, for six or eight  months, has returned to Phoenix and  secured a position at the Snowshoe  mine.  September total     138,964  . The above figures do not include  any. custom ore shipped to district  smelters.frorn outside the Boundary,  nor'o're from Boundary owned mines  from the outside.  New Sawmill Starting.  D. J. McDonald and John P Loftus  have purchased a new sawmill and installed it about two   miles   from   Anaconda on the No. 7 wagon   road, in a  belt of fine   fir," tamarack  and   cedar  timber, that will last for several   years  he mill has a capacity of 25,000 feet  per day of finished lumber, there also  being a planing  mill   in  connection.  With the present demand for   lumber  in the various towns and mines of the  Boundary, and with  the advantage of  small freights, the new firm should  do  well.    The first order will be for three-  inch plank to be used on the 225 feet  of bridges on the new wagon road just  east of Phoenix.  Work started this week on the house  to cover the new air compressor-being  installed at the War Eagle by the Consolidated Company.  Dominion Copper Co's monthly pay  day will be on the 12th hereafter, instead of the 10th as formerly, this  taking effect today.  For August Snowshoe's shipments  were 18,532 tons, being 8,389 tons to  Trail smelter and 10,143 tons to the  B.   C.     Copper     Co.'s    Greenwood  smelter.  <    .        .  With the large force employed during September, Granby's mine payroll  was a healthy one here, about $55,000,  which was distributed last Thursday,  as usual.  Boyles Bros, sent one of their drilling outfits to the Skylark mine this  week, where they will put in a number  of bore holes for the Skylark Development Co., Ltd.  Next week the annual meeting of  the Providence Mining Co. will be  held in Greenwood, when plans for a  larger machinery plant are expected to  be laid before the shareholders.   ���*������  M. Mclntyre expected io haul  Athelstan ore from Wellington camp  to the Winnipeg spur this week, but  I was delayed in beginning the work because of a frog taken out by the G; P.  R., which had to be replaced before  dumps could be spotted at the desired  place.  At the Independence group, in the  Similkameen, being operated .under  bond by the Grandy Co., a shaft has  been sunk 150 feet, and a tunnel  driven 450 feet to meet it. The force  of men is now crosscutting- the development being encouraging, according to W. Y. Williams, who returned  from the property, on Bear creek, last  week. Work will be continued there  all winter, according to the present  plans.  FOUR CASES AND  A QUARANTINE  Latest Prices in Metal*  Nkw Yoek���Copper, electrolytic, $13.

Fagan,   of  Victoria,   provincial health officer, was here Wednesday and  Thursday,   looking  into  the  (tvf cases   of small  pox   which   have  broken out here recently, most of them  since the last issue of the Pioneer  was  put in type.    The doctor looked  into  everything and   expressed   himself as  well satisfied with the  steps   that  had  been taken to prevent the  spread  of  the disease,   but   wished   to  learn  its  source, and left   here for  Greenwood  on that mission.    While  here   he  appointed   Dr.   J.   D.    MacLean    local  medical health officer,  the  city doing  the   same   on   its behalf.     Dr.   Mac-  Lean stated to the Pioneer:  "There are only four cases thus far,  and no new ones have developed since  last Friday. These cases we are taking  care of at the hospital specially constructed, and we think we have the  matter well in hand now. The city is  quarantined so that there shall be no  communicating of the disease on the  outside. Every precaution is being  taken."  The mines of the camp are working  and-shipping as usual, and general  business runs along in the usual way,  with the above exceptions. Many,  however, are wisely being vaccinated,  as an additional precaution.  ������--��.��  BOUNDARY ORE TONNAGE.  October 12, '07  Maurice M.

Robbins  and  Vrieniais|Andrew ^^ al, ofSpokane  The Drop In Copper.  The last number���October���of the  American Review of Reviews has the  following on the recent drop in the  price of copper and the causes that led  thereto:  Oiie of the recent sensations in the  industrial world has   been   the   fall in  the price of copper.    Not many weeks  ago this metal was selling at about 25  cents a pound.     We were then told by  the leading authorities   at   home  and  abroad that the demand for copper was  so great, and the supply was relatively  so   small,   as   to   make   it   reasonably  certain that the   price -would   not   bo  uch lower for a  lon�� time  to   come.  At the prevailing high prices there wjis  enormous speculation in the shares of  copper mines     Men usually conservative in matters of investment   seemed  confident  about   the   maintenance of  high prices for copper, and, therefore,  1 about the value of the copper  stocks.  VVe had seldom   in   this  country witnessed so   vast  a   speculative   investment in any direction  as   that   which  had   taken   place   in  copper   mining  during the  past  two  or  three   years.  Suddenly there arose a  deadlock   between the chief purchasers  of  copper  and the chief selling agencies, and after  a time the sellers began to  yield.    It  did not take long   for copper   to  fall  from about 25 cents a pound to a level  last month not far above 15 cents.  The more  profitable copper mines  could, of course, do   business  at the  reduced    price,���but    many    mining  enterprises  which   had   been   paying  dividends or were in process of development were reduced to a condition of  practical collapse.   Meanwhile it seems  probable that' the market  had   been  held at an inflated price for some time,  while those who understand the   game  were unloading their shares in  mining  enterprises    upon   the    long-suffering  public.    If there could have  been absolute publicity in   the  affairs   of the  Amalgamated   Copper  Company and  its related corporations, it is not  likely  that so great a misfortune  could have  overtaken   thousands   of innocent investors. .  While it is a more or less mooted  point, it is probably so that a normal  and reasonable price for copper is  about 15 cents a pound, and that a  fair and proper administration of great.  business interests Would have kept the |  o*-<a ��>���-<�� *&>e*<j> &>-���  ditions of mining and of investment.  j Vast enterprises in the nature of electrical equipment comoanies were im-  | properly affected by an unreasonable  price for the copper which they, more  than all other consumers, have to buy.  The Montana mines were last month  shut down to a fraction of their normal  output.  THMRR ISN'T  a medical man or a food specialist  in America but will say that  Calumet and Heels Responsible.  There are not  a few  who  assert���  I and there is some evidence to   sustain  I the assertion���that the   Calumet and  , Hecla people are primarily responsible  lor the general mix-up in copper affairs,  and for the  very serious  losses : that  have   been   recently   experienced . by-  copper producers and by stockholders  in copper companies, says the American  Mining Review.    When last April the  Calumet and Hecla people  were approached with a proposition  to  agree  with Phelps, Dodge &   Co.  and  the  Amalgamated Copper Company on a  fixed pi ice  for  copper  so  that  consumers   might  know just   what  they  would have to pay for the metal, they,  in their high and mighty   way   replied  that they would not agree to anything;  that they would  do as   they   blessed  ploased, being abundantly able to take  care of themselves.  That they are able to  take care of  themselves will not be denied, but evidence is not lacking to show that they  failed to take  their stockholders  into  full consideration, as they have had to  lop off $5 a share from their quarterly  dividend.    To the Shaws and Agassizs  a little matter of $5 a, share  more  or  less does not cut much of a figure, but  there are several hundreds of Calumet  and Hecla's stockholders   to   whom' a  reduction of $5 a share on   their  dividend will make a very serious rent' in  their income.    There need   not   have  been any difficulty   in   sustaining   the  price of copper at 20 cents a pound���  which price would have  been   entirely  satisfactory   to   consumers���had  'the  Calumet and Hecla people   not   been  so   almighty   hoity-toity;   they   would  brook  no interference; they   were the  biggest thing in copper on  earth; they  would   sell  copper  at whatever price  pleased them;  they  would   enact  the  role of Don Quixote and start out on a  campaign after windmills, but to enter  into any compact  with  the  Amalgamated people and Phelps-Dodge people  was a   thing   absolutely  abhorrent to  TEAS  AHE THE PUREST, MOST HEALTHFUL AND  MOST DELICIOUS OF ALL.

Premier McBride was on the right  track. So the members turned a  somersault, as it were, turned down the  McBride plan of campaign, and endorsed that of Sir Wilfrid Laurier, thus  practically rendering nugatory the resolution they did pass.

This is one advantage of  living in the Boundary.  The Canadian Mining Journal, of  Toronto, is still hammering away at  ihe Cobalt and Larder Lake wildcats.  In its last issue it does not do a thing  to ihe Blue Bell Gold Mines, Ltd.,  which is being promoted by Law & Co.,  Toronto brokers���being one of the advertisements that the promoters do not  have to pay for. Many in the Boundary have been favored (?) with circulars of this concern,"and will not feel  sorry if its career is to be cut short.  The  Progress, a  weekly   heretofore  published at  Enderby, in   the  Okan-  agan,   is   dead.    The  editor,, in   his  valedictory, said that his   efforts   were  not  appreciated,   and   he   pulled   up  stakes and  moved   to  Salmon   Arm  The sooner a paper   leaves   a  town of  that kind the better for the publisher.  When   business   men  are   so   narrow  minded that they cannot appreciate. ;a  good weekly���and that the only one���  it is time lhat they should be left to  fossilize and grow cobwebs in their  establishments; for, say what one will,  it is generally recognized now that no  one thing does more for the upbuilding of a town or district than a live,  newsy newspaper.

C, and which is trying to  sell stores, by mail. Those responsible  for the company are not mentioned!  though the name of James Lawier  figures considerably. The mines are  said to be at Rossland, adjoining the  LeRoi and other well known groups,  and the novice would think it a prosperous going concern with no small  output of bullion. As a matter of  fact, the ore tables from Rossland  never mention the Big Four as a  shipper, and on account of this and  other peculiar.cir.cumstances, it,would  seem that the concern is one that the  P. O. department might well look into,  and ascertain, its. bona fides. Unless  we are, mistaken���it is a dead one.  ���.'���'..*"  T.

Last spring he was sent  east through subscriptions raised largely  ;in Phoenix, to get relief, but failed.  Recently he was found nearly dead in  the Hope mountains, and sent to his  daughter at .Addy, Wash. While on  'he way, the editor of the Hedley  Gazette saw him, and the following is  the story from that paper of the discovery of the famous Cariboo, that has  yielded nearly $2,000,000:  It was in the spring of 1887 that  McKinney, along, with Fred Rice,  Burnham (whom he referred to as "the  old."mail") and Edward Lefevre, afterwards known among Boundary prospectors as'"old Frenchy," left Colville.  Passing Rock Creek they found  Charlie Dietz.and others placer mining  on White Bar on the north fork of  Rock Creek. They stayed for a while  at'Dietz's placer camp and from there  started to look over the ridge of  country lying between the two forks.  Pushing on towards "Old Baldy," their  shins scraped with the crust on the  snow, for it was a late spring, they  came on May 27th, 1887, upon an  open bare spot overlooking a nice little  stream which was flowing southward  towards the south fork of Kock Creek,  into which it emptied after making  several windings towards the east. On  this.bare.knpll they found quartz outcrop, decomposed, in which . the gojd  was plainly. seen . in. abundance, there  Being no necessity for planning to find  it, although they did gather up some  of the more decomposed matter and  panned it in the stream near by, getting not colors but a little long ridge  of gold that they could gather into  heaps with their thumb nails on the  bottom rim of the pan.  From the surface exposures it appeared wrongly that the vein was run  ning north and south, and the first  claim staked was the Cariboo, running  1500 feet north and south by 600 feet  in width, as the law then required for  a mineral claim. This claim they  located in the name of McKinney and  Rice. Some, more prospecting around  showed more outcroppings.to the east  that in the excitement of the discovery  they took to be another parallel vein.  Burnham complained bitterly that he  was not let in on the Cariboo, or as  McKinney put .it, '!he~crie<i." Then  they told him to put, stakes on the  ground to the east. This wouldn't  satisfy him, until McKinney took him  over to, it and showed him the gold in  it. They gathered a panful, and the  decomposed quartz was like white  ashes7 They took this down to the  creek and panned it out, getting $2.50  wurth of gold in the one pan".' This  ground was also staked north and  south 1500 . feet, but by getting the  posts too near the Cariboo centre line  they only got a width of 500 feet or a  little less. This claim was called the  Amelia, and was in the name of Burnham arid Lefevre The camp they  called McKinney, and the creek Rice  creek.  Next year McKinney let his interest go, to Spokane parties, among  whom he mentioned James Monaghan,  Geo. B. McAuley and Clement King.  The purchasers, it appeared, were in  little better shape to operate it than he  was himself, and he mentioned of one  time that Monaghan would have  backed out and given him the interest  back.  No mention was made of the price  for which he had parted with his interest, and under the circumstances the  Gazette forebore trying to elicit the information; but if we remember right  it has been talked around Camp McKinney that the sum paid was something like $7,000.  The writer remembers the circumstances under which Mr. Monaghan  afterwards disposed of his shares in the  mine some ten years afterwards. Besides the money which he had taken  out in dividends during these ten years  he disposed of his stock in the company at 60 cents per share in 1S98 and  his holdings were sufficiently large to  give him something over $400,000 in  cash. Monaghan afterwards made  large investments in Spokane, which  have greatly increased in value, and he  is now in receipt of a large annual income. ,  When he began to operate the Cariboo in April, 1894, he was almost  bankrupt, for then the trade depression  was at its worst. He obtained a  second-hand ten-stamp mill from the  Rainbow claim in Washington state,  which he bought on credit and hauled  in to McKinney, standing off the customs for several months for the duty,  and having an understanding with the  miners he brought in with him, that  their pay was to come out of the ore,  and they were to take their chances on  that, the same as he was doing.  After .all, it is seen that the harder  the times the better it is for operating  a gold mine. The Cariboo paid big  from the first drop of the stamps on  the 24th of April, 1394.  Al. McKinney, now down on his  luck, has done much prospecting since  then, but Fortune knocked only once  at his door. The hope that springs  eternal in the human   breast, however,  SUFFERED FOR YEARS  WITH A  COMPLICATION OF  PELVIC DISEASES.  Robust Women Who Owe Their Restored Health and  Usefulness to Pe=ru=na.
