To tiik Stockholders ok thk  New York, October 2, 1906.  Oranby Consolidated Mlalnr Smelting & Power to., Lid.  ^ Gentlemen :���It is with deep regret that we have to record the  death  in February last of Mr. John Stanton, one of our Directors,- whose advice and  guidance are greatly missed by the Board.  The business of the company has been largely increased.' The total tonnage smelted amounts to 832,346 tons, resulting in a production of 19,939,-  004 lbs. of copper fine, or an increase of over forty per cent, against the previous year. ' .  Two of the new, large blast furnaces, which became 'operative last fall,  are working so successfully, that it has been decided successfully to re-construct the six.old smaller furnaces, which work is now in progress. Unfortunately, great delays.were experienced on account of the difficulty in procuring  the necessary materials and accessory machinery.' The' 'probability, however,  is that this work will be completed early next year and the "smelting capacity  will then again be largely increased.  In November last a fire destroyed a large ore crusher,.; which for a few  months greatly "hampered shipments of ore to the smelter, as Tunnel No. 1  was laid praoiic^ll/j idle.-Jfor a time, during which all- shipments had to be  made frorh 'iVnJi-ff. No. 3. The local management deserves great credit for  the efficient manner in which it met this emergency, without largely curtailing  the current production.' Since the completion of the new crusher, shipments  have beeu made without any interruption. '  ��� :������;  In view of the. high prices for copper ruling since-last fall, it has been  deemed wise to mine large quantities of ore carrying a smaller percentage of  copper than the average run of the mines. Active development work has been  going on continually, and diamond drills have opened up large ore-bodies in  the Victoria and Aetna mines, where a new shaft is now being sunk and the  necessary improvements installed for crushing and shipping this output; the  first shipment will, likely, be made by the end of this year.  Development of the Gold Drop claims, which were purchased last summer, proved satisfactory, and for some months past shipments averaged over  200 tons of ore daily. A tunnel is being pushed toward the Monarch property, opening up satisfactory ore-bodies. The length and width is not yet fully  determined, but indications point to large bodies of ore, a considerable portion  of which will soon be available for hoisting. These developments, have largely increased the tonnage of ore in sight over that extracted in the year.  Further economies have been effected in practically all departments,  again resulting in great savings.  Under the circumstances, the Board felt justified in paying two dividends  of three per cent, each on January 15th and May 15th, respectively, amounting together to $810,000. In addition, the available cash assets of the company were largely incrersed.  Mother dividend of three per cent, has meanwhile been paid, viz: on  September 15th.  Respectfully submitted,  J.  LANGELOTH,  President.  Treasurer's  Report.

Fire broke out about six o'clock  Wednesday morning in the Rumberger building on Dominion avenue, a  two-story structure. The building was  occupied by A. Almstrom, stationer,  Frank Wilms, barber, and on the upper floor by Chief of Police Flood as  a residence and by Mayor Rumberger  as his office and private rooms. The  chief of police had just come in from  his night work when the smoke came  up into his rooms, followed by roaring  flames. He rushed to an auxilliary  hose house near by and soon had a  stream on the fire. About the same  time the city team dashed up with the  hose wagon, and with many willing  hands the fire was soon put out. The  flames originated in the barber shop  on the lower floor, where Wilms had  just lighted a fire with coal oil and left  it for a few minutes. On his return  the building was all in flames.  Probably $1,000 will cover the loss,  Mr. Flood's furniture and effects being-  ruined as well as the barber shop below. The r#st of the damage was by  water. The only insurance carried  was by Mr..Almstrom, whose damage  was by water. W. A. lutwson, of the  Queen Insurance Co., happened to be  here from Victoria, and adjusted Mr.  Almstrom's loss at $400.

Curling Club Elects Officers.  Wednesday evening the annual meeting of the I'hoenix Curling Club was  held at the city hall, and the following  officers were elected: President, ('. II.  Reeves; vice-president, A. S. Mood;  secretary-treasurer, W. I). Lawson; executive cqmmittee,   E. P. Shea, G. E.  Dey, C. L. Thornber and J. J. Strut-  z.el; ice committee, R. B. Boucher, J.  A. Morrin and G. I. McNicol. It  was decided that the executive committee should select ;i special committee to arrange for a scries of monthly  dances, to be given during the coming  winter, in order to clear off the debt of  the club, which was menrred last winter when the rink was greatly enlarged.  In the wee small hours of Tuesday  morning, as a heavy blast was set off in  a stope up from the 250-foot level of  the Brooklyn mine, it broke through  to the surface, and a portion of Dominion avenue, one of the main thoroughfares of the city, began sliding into the hole, and has bean sliding more  or less since. No one was injured by  the incident, and Supt. Gardanier at  once began preparing to fill in the  yawning chasm,, which was fenced off  at a safe distance to prercnt accidents  to pedestrians and teams. A trestle is  being built from the Idaho ore- bins,  250 feet distant, and a track- will be  laid and the hole filled with waste  rock. The hole is now probably 50  feet deep and the sime in circumference, and the seepage has continually  made the aperture larger.  The drift at the 250-foot level of the  Brooklyn-mine of the Dominion Copper Co. runs directly under Dominion  avenue, below the city hall, to a con  nection with the workings of the Idaho mine. Sloping has been going on  here, and evidently it came too close to  the surface, with the result mentioned.  As the cave has been growing larger,  Miss McDonald, milliner, and G, W.  McAuliffe, tailor, have suspended business, as Mr. McAuliffe's one-story  building is now on the edge of the  brink, though not thought to be in im  mediate danger of falling into this improvised glory hole. It will probably  take some little time to fill the hole,  which can be done easily if heavy rains  no not set in.   Most Up-to-da'e la Province.  A steam heating plant has just been  installed in the Brooklyn hotel and is  now it operation. This is one of the  most up-to-date in the province, and  is so instalied that there is no snapping or cracking noise that usually occur with steam heating. The furnace  has a capacity sufficient to heat the  new addition, which will be built to  the hotel next year This has added  very much to the comfort of the guests,  a feature the proprietor, Mr. Marshall,  has always endeavored to do. The  system was put in by Mr. Harry Snyder, a practical plumber, who contemplates locating in Phoenix.  Boundary Ore Tonnage.  Week of Ota. li. 1900.

Office ok the Dominion Copper Company, Ltd.,  30 Broad Street, ���  New York, September 18th, 1906.  To the Shareholders:  Your directors respectfully present their report of the state and condition  of the company for the year commencing July 31, 1905, when the present  management took charge, and ending July 31, 1906.  The report of the president, dated November 22, 1905, and mailed to each  shareholder, stated the progress made up to that time in perfecting the reorganization of the Montreal & Boston Consolidated Mining and Smelting  Company, Ltd., in transferring all its properties to your company, and in developing the mines and preparing to start the smelter.  All claims against the company, or subsidiary companies, mentioned in  the report, have been settled or successfully defended," so that at the present  time the company and the subsidiary companies are free from claims of every  nature.  On January 31, 1906, your company purchased all the properties of the  Montreal & Boston Copper Company, Ltd., including the smelter at Boundary Falls, B. C, and the Sunset, Crown Silver and C. O. D. mineral claims.  The work of exploring and developing the properties of your company  has been actively pushed under the supervision of Mr. M. M. Johnson, consulting engineer.  The Rawhide and the Idaho claims are now in a position to furnish the  additional tonnage necessary when the new furnace goes into commission, and  our output will be from 1200 to 1400 tons of ore per day, or considerably  more than double our present capacity. The plant and equipment at the  mines and smelter have been put into first-class condition.  A number of economies in operation are being introduced at the mines and  the smelter, including the equipment of both the mines and the smelter  with electrical power in place of steam. The company has been  using since last December about 600 horse power per day, at a cost of about  $135 to $140 per annum per horse power. When the electrical equipment  is completely installed, the cost per horse power per annum will be reduced  to $30.. This will result in a saving of $100,000 a year to the company over  its present cost of power, as the company will be using at least 1000 horse  power upon the installation of the new furnace.  The new furnace which has been built by the Traylor Engineering company has been shipppd and will be installed as soon as it arrives. This is the  largest furnace ever,erected in British Columbia. It will have a daily capacity  of about 800 tons of ore, and by reason of being equipped with the most  modern devices it is expected that a saving of 20 per cent in fuel will be effected, and also a large saving in the labor required to operate it. These two  items will aggregate over $100 per day. The company has secured a new  contract lor converting its matte, which will reduce the cost of this work over  25 per cent.  An analysis of the company's operations for the eight months of operation,  December' ist, 1905, to July 31, 1906, which has been largely a period of construction and development, shows 133,084 tons oforesmelted, producing 3,2 20.8.9  tans of matte, having a total value of $640,128.97. The operating cost, including mining, smelting, converting, marketing and administration expenses,  has been $500,984.93, leaving a net profit for the eight months of $139,144.04.  The results of the economies already introduced are beginning to be reflected in the company's earnings. The operations for the month of July produced earnings of $31,431.79, and on this basis the net profits of the present  smelter for 12 months would exceed $300,000. The new furnace will more  than double the present capacity, and the economies still to be completed  will reduce the present cost of producing copper. Your directors believe the  company will be able to produce its copper at a cost of not more than 8 cents  per pound.  The company has taken options on a number of claims located in the district and Is now engaged in prospecting and exploring these properties with a  view of purchasing such as may prove to be valuable to the company.  The financial statement  and trial  balance hereto   appended   set forth   the  condition of the company on July 31, 1906.  Attest: WARNER MILLER,  Leopold Herrmann, Secretary. President.

One of the best undertakings yet  attempted in Phoenix for the genetal  good of the community is that of a  public library and reading room, which  is expected to be opened in the course  of another week or.two. The subject  is one that has been considered in all  its aspects by the members of the several labor organizations in Phoenix for  some months, and it is now, we are  pleased to note, being brought to a  successful issue.  The grear difficulty in matters of  this kind, when once started, is where  even the small support necessary for  the upkeep is to be derived. This has  been carefully considered, and the  unions, by vote, have decided to tax each  member 5 cents per month, thus providing a fund which is sure and can  . be relied upon.  The Miners' . Union has given the  use of the corner ground floor storeroom in the new opera house, at a  very low rental, and it is admirably  suited for the purpose. A number of  outside concerns have made generous  donations of cash, details of which appear in another part of this issue, and  next week a benefit dance will be given, to start the reading room off in  good shape.  This reading room will be a boon to  many men, .who, when not working,  like to be quiet and at the same time  have the privilege of access to the periodicals of the day, including a con  stantly growing library of standard  works, and the room will undoubtedly  be largely patronized this winter. This  is one of the best steps the unions  have ever taken, and we believe that  the public ate .large will agree with us,  and will show it by encouraging it in  every reasonable way. The need of it  has long been felt, and being undertaken under the auspices of organized  labor, there is.no reason why it.should  not accomplish all that is expected of  it and be fully appreciated by the hundreds of.men cynployed   in this camp.  were termed "welchers." Up lo date,  according' to report, losses have been  paid by dollar for dollar companies up  lo $154,000,000, and strong pressure  is being brought to bear on many of  the welchers, who are able to do so,  110 make them settle on an equitable  basis, with 'sonic prospect of success.  Many of them have taken advantage  of the earthquake clause in their policies, and thus evaded settlement.  It is interesting to note that almost  every company now doing business  throughout British Columbia is re-  its losses in San  Francisco satisfactorily and promptly,  j the welchers being among those not  represented in British Columbia.  Were this not so, it may be assumed  that the advertising which the welchers  are to begin to receive shortly from  prominent interests in San Francisco,  would not help them get business in  British Columbia. As it will be, however, the welchers will "undoubtedly  have their troubles to secure new business all over the west unless they step  up to the captain's office and do the  right thing.  And this is as it should be. Relying on their fire policies and the  companies behind them, every faith  was put in those corporations. If they  do not keep faith at such a time, when  the need is so great, and when they  are fully able to do so, they should be  emblazoned to the entire world. And,  vice versa, those who have met losses  promptly should, and doubtless will,  receive future business of this kind.

P., has promised Salmon Arm $5,000 for a wharf, but we  haven't heard of Duncan promising  anything special for the immediate section where he lives���the Boundary.  At the Dominion election, however, a  couple of years ago, he promised immediate construction of the Grand  Trunk Pacific through this province, if  only a "solid seven" were sent to Ot  tawa from this province. They were  sent, but the promises ol Mr. Ross,  Mr. Templeman and others have yet  to be made good. Promises seem to  be a strong card with our Liberal  friends, but fulfilling them is an entirely different matter.  �����  A writer has grouped some interest  ing facts about the world's m.ost remarkable city street.

The dirtiest street is that of Tchang-  sti, in Nankin; the cleanest is the Via  Castile, in Seville, Spain; the most  aristocratic one is Grosvenor Plrce, in  London; the most beautiful is the Avenue des Champs Elysees, Paris. The  narrowest street is the Via Sol, Havana, Cuba, which has a width of only  forty-two inches.  "(..heer up I The world is taking  your photograph. Look pleasant. Of  course you have your troubles; a whole  lot of them. Nevertheless, cheer up  The storm will soon be over." Pretty good philosophy, that.  MS  A press dispatch states that it is understood that the postmaster-general  will shortly announce an increase in  the scale of salaries paid to rural postmasters, fqr which the latter have been  clamoring for years on account of the  increased cost of living in almost every  part of the Dominion. This is a good I  idea, but no one hears any one from  Ottawa annonncing in loud tones���or j  in low ones, either���that the exceedingly poor mail service in western  Canada will be improved.  Troubles  of the  Welchers.  iVhen the smoke had cleared  away  after the disastrous earthquake and fire  By applying an antiseptic dressing to  wounds, bruises, burns and iike injuries  before inflammation sets in, they may  be healed without maturation and in  1 about one-third the time required by  the old treatment. This is the greatest discovery and triumph of modern  surgery. Chamberlain's Pain Balm acts  on this same   principle.

R. ever had in this or  the old country is the "Over Seas"  limited train, which it is now running  between Quebec and Vancouver,- connecting with its own lines of steamships on the Atlantic and Pacific  oceans, and making the railway run in  about 90 hours from coast to coast.  Recently on one trip six hours in time  were made up by this train, a remarkable accomplishment. Great credit is  due the C. P. R. for the enterprise  manifested in this new train, which  brings the mother country so much  nearer the Orient ��� a fact that,  in time of war or other need, may be  ot' the greatest importance.  Mt  Every day or   two   the   Pipneer  is  favored with communications from this  or that concern   or   body, with  a  request that we give the same an   insertion in this family weekly.    No   mention is ever made of a quid pro quo in  tliis connection, but we are asked to do  it for the good of the cause, whatever  it may happen lo  be.    This week we  received   one  of these letters, with a  nicely printed   story which would   occupy about three columns  of this  paper, and be of no   special   interest   to  the majority of our readers.    We are  willing   to   do   our   share   and a little  more   in   assisting   any worthy  object  that is not onerated as a money making  enterprise, but we must draw the line  somewhere, and we   do  it right   here.

V\'e have just noticed a report in a Seattle paper, dated  at Winnipeg, about the Fernie c;al  miners' strike. It says that 5,000 miners  are out, that there have been several  clashes between the men and the police,  and that the government is taking a  hand in the settlement���none of which  are statements of facts. The penny-a-  liners are certainly making hay while  the sun shines, or while the strike lasts,  but we hope and trust that the matter  will not get as bad as stated, which it  certainly has not as yet.  are already scattering inland in logging  camps, etc. Even n few of them have  reached the Boundary, being employed  in the construction of the Kettle Valley lines branch up the North Fork of  Kettle river, just what will be done  about it remains to be seen, but R. G.  MacPherson, M. I'., from Vancouver,  has been making some strong representations regarding the matter before  the Ottawa authorities.  There is nothing like the force of  printers' ink. Last week the Pioneer  called attention to the fact that the  lumber had been on the ground for  several weeks for P. Burns & Co.'s  new block in this city, and nothing  had been done.

Does it read 906 (meaning  paid up to September, 1906), or any  less figures? If so, it means that you  are in arrears to this great family journal, and that we will appreciate your  prompt attention to the matter. Our  paper bills come due regularly, and,  strange to say, the wholesale houses expect us to meet the drafts when presented. Then the typographical artists on this g. f. j. eat regularly, and  that also requires coin of the realm.  Doubtless you have overlooked the  matter, which is small to you, but in  the aggregate large to us, and if you  happen to be one of those from one  to four years in arrears, payment now  will be doubly appreciated. Now, then,  who will speak first ?  ��n  Your Uncle Samuel has, as expected, taken possession of Cuba, and War  Secretary Taft is the military governor.  Natives of that wondeifully fertile  island have proved that they are utterly incapable of self-government, and it  is a good thing for them that the United  States is. willing to protect them from  themselves.

P. for  Yale-Cariboo, paid a short  visit to  the city last  week, interviewing his  henchmen and  concerting plans   for the   future,   says  the Vernon   News. ' It is   understood  that Mr. Ross was not at all" prepared  to eat humble pie  on the score of his  notable  failure to press   the   interests  of the Okanagan upon the attention of  the government  during  the past  two  sessions.    Instead, he  carried matters  with such a high hand that his faithful  adherents were fain to  swallow   their  grievances at a gulp  and   "lake back  water" with almost ludicrous  celerity.  The plausible Mr.   Ross   then  salved  their somewhat ruffled feelings   with a  glittering array of promises,   appropriations for a canal   through   the "Railroad," a Dominion public   building at  a cost of $25,000, and   the  extension  of the telephone to Lumby.

The business man, if such there be,  who does not believe in the power 01  printer's ink, should take note of the  following, by a man who once believed  as he did:  The modern merchant who never  advertises escapes a lot of trouble. He  may keep out of it without intending  to do anything of the sort, but he escapes it just the same. He gets rid of  the trouble of preparing advertise  ments, and, ol course, has no worry  about changing them and keeping  them up-to date. He is not bothered  about the way his advertisements are  printed, nor the position they occupy.  He may say, with much truthfulness,  that it is no trouble to show goods,  for he is seldom asked to show any.  But his greatest saving of trouble is  not having to sell goods tu people who  stay away, but would come if he advertised. Then as he sells few goods,  he has few goods to buy, and there is  more trouble saved. He never has  the trouble of selecting and paying a  large staff of assistants. He gets rid  of the trouble of having to pay for advertisements. Finally he never has the  trouble of enlarging his store, or of re  moving to a bigger one, and it is very  little trouble to count his money.  INTERNATIONAL COAL & COKE CO.  Made   Record   for One   Day'g   Shipment In  Crow's Nesl.  H. N. Galer, manager of the International Coal and Coke Co., of Coleman, Alberta, who is on the coast,  states that the record of all the mines  in the Crow's Nest Pass was broken  when his company mined and shipped  i,7S 1 tons of coal in one shift. This  took place three or four weeks ago. It  was done without any special effort on  the part of the company, and during  the shift the box-car loader was out of  commission for fully one hour. A. C  Flumerfelt is president of the company.  It is just four years ago this month,  says the Victoria Colonist, since the  first coal mined from this property was  taken out and tested in the coke ovens  at Fernie. The property at that time  was known as the Paulson mine and  under the charge of Mr. Newport. The  coal was first opened up at a point on  the veins about three miles back in  the hills from the present site of the  town of Coleman, where is now situated the present mines and workings of  the company. The coal was sacked  and brought out to Blairmore on pack  horses, A. P. McDonald, now of Coleman, but at that time running a livery  stable at Frank, having the contract.  More depended upon the test made  on this coal than anyone at the time  dreamed of, for on it rested the fate of  what is today the International Coal  & Coke Company, and the prosperous  town of Coleman.  At that time the present site of the  mine and workings had not even a  prospect hole upon it or the veins uncovered, that portion of the property  then belonging to the Hudson's  Bay Company, and the land upon  which is now situated the up-to-  date plant and works was a series of  creek bottoms, bog and brush. The  town of Coleman was not even thought  of, and yet it lacks a month of its being  three years since it was laid out into  town lots and the first buildings started. Many of Coleman's foremost cit  izens were then in the Pass, but took  little interest in the tests being made  upon the coal.  WILL OPEN  READING ROOM  Good Cause Fathered By the  Unions.  General Donations Are Now  In Order.  An Awful Cough Cured.  "Two years ago our little girl had a  touch of pneumonia, which left her  with an awful cough. Shi- had spells  of coughing, just like one with the  whooping cough, and some thought  she would not get well at all. We got  a bottle of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy, which acted like a charm. She  stopped coughing and got stout and  fat," writes Mrs. Ora Bussard, Brue  baker, 111. This remedy is for sale by  all druggist.  May Sell Nickel Plate.  There is much speculation as to the  outcome of the thorough investigation  being made of the Nickel Plate mine  at Hedley by a big New York mining  company. It is believed that the pur  chase of the Nickel Plate by this company would mean a great stride forward tor Hedley and the whole Similkameen. It is reported that internal  dissensions in the Daly company have  curtailed its further progress, hence  the proposed sale as a means of satisfying the dissentients. All depends on  the report made by Mr, Channing,  mining expert, who arrived in Hedley  a few days ago, to make a personal examination and receive results of assays.  WISE AND OTHERWISE.  It is easy to expect others to set  good examples.  When opportunity knocks it doesn't  use a hammer.  Despair is the undertaker that carts  eff our dead hopes.  Occasionally a man rises from nothing to something worse.  Prodigals have always exceeded the  supply of fatted calves.  It doesn't require much practice to  acquire the art of being lazy.  Many a man who takes himself seriously is looked upon as a joke by  others.  OLLA PODRIDA  Johnny���Tommy, let's put our pennies together and buy ma a Christmas  present.  Tommy���All right.

C, Oct.  1, 1906.  Editor Pioneer,  Phoenix, 13. C.  Dear Sir: --Some time since a movement was started by the several unions  in Phoenix to establish a free reading  room and library in the city. After  talking tilings over, it was decided to  first write to the wholesale houses doing business in Phoenix, such as machinery and powder companies, department stores, wholesale liquor concerns, and dry goods and grocery firms,  asking if they wished to assist the project. That they have responded generously is evident from the following  list of donations already received :  Bennett Fuse Co    $25  Hamilton  Powder Co      20  Hudson's  Bay Co      20  Allis-Chalmers-Bullock, Ltd.....     15  P. Burns & Co      15  Win. Braid & Co      12  A. McDonald & Co        5  Turner, Beeton & Co        5  XV. H. G. Malkin & Co.        5  B. & K. Milling Co        5  The unions interested,   namely, the  I. \V. W., Carpenters and Miners, have  agreed to provide a steady revenue of  5 cents per month from each member,  but feel that, as the permanency of the  undertaking is now assured, we can  confidently appeal to the citizens 01  Phoenix for support.  The corner room in Miners' Union  block has been secured at a nominal  rental, and the caretaking has also  been voluntarily provided for. What  we need greatly now are books, magazines, etc. Almost everyone can help  a little by donations of money or literature. Eiiher will be thankfully received Books should be sent to the  reading room, or will be called for on  notification. All money donated should  be sent to the Eastern Townships  Bank, Phoenix, to the credit of the  Phoenix Library Fund.  When completed, the reading room  will be open every day and evening for  the use of the public, and accounts for  moneys received or expended will at  all times be shown to any one making  inquiries for the same.  Thanking you in advance   for space  in your valuable paper, we remain,  Yours truly,  R. D. Mitchell, Chairman.  D. M. Si-KARE,, Sec.-Treas.  Members of the unions in Phoenix  have shown their interest in the establishment of a reading room here for  the general use of the public by voluntarily taxing themselves 5 cents per  month each for its support. This  practical method of showing faith will  commend itself, and should encourage  others to do their part, however small  it may happen to be. Next week Friday a benefit dance will be given, and  every man residing in this community  should invest in at least one ticket for  the cause. At present there is noth  ing whatever of this kind, and it is  something that should carry its own  endorsement to any right-thinking man  or woman, and we believe that it will  do so.

The good health I had enjoyed  was slipping away and there developed  a complication of diseases. My physician said my case was one of general  debility.  "Among tbe many ailments which  developed was a seriouei attack of catarrh, -which annoyed me considerably  and kept me awake whole nights.  "/ decided to give Peruna a trial  and soon found it acting as a wonderful tonic to my system. The catarrh  grew less severe and shortly afterward disappeared, as did also the  various other maladies.
