It says that a further expenditure of $2,000,000 will be made  on developments in connection with  the Hidden Creek property, which is  $800,000 in excess of cash and copper  on hand. The board of directors  has under consideration the hc*t  method of financing the additional  expenditures authorized.  President W. H.   Nichols says   in  the statement:  C. O. Mailloux has been employed  as assistant to the president, and in  that capacity has visited all the properties of the company. His report  to the board is highly reassuring1,  and fully confirms our expectations.  Work at Grand Forks and Phoenix  has progressed without interruption,  and results continue satisfactory.  Net profits for four months ended  October 31 averaged $140,000, and  the company has cash in hand and  copper totaling about $1,100,000  over ail liabilities. In accordance  with the recommendations of our  management, the board has authorised the completion of a 2000-ton  smelter and power plan, and the  work will proCeed with all possible  speed, in the hope that we may be  shipping copper from this property  before the close of 1913. It is believed that the smeller and town,  with buildings and equipment, 'can  be completed, the power plant installed, and development work kept  up meanwhile by the further expenditure of $2,000,000.  The board is giving careful consideration as to whether earning-s  should be accumulated for the purpose   of   meeting   this   outlay,    or  whether some comprehensive linanj  cial plan should bedevised to tak'd  care of this and further opportunii  ties as they arise, so as to admit of ait  earlier distribution'of a reasonable  portion of earnings' in the form of  dividends.

Peacock, a former resident of  Phoenix, arrived in town on   Saturday from the coast, where his family  are located.     Since leaving Phoenix  a few years ago, Jim has been globe  trotting and for a time was in South  Africa trying his   luck   in   the   new  diamond   fields   in   the, Transvaal-  colony.      Mr.   Peacock   says   there  were about 20,000 men prospecting,  but up to the   time he left,  the diggings  had  not   come   up to expectation.     The largest diamond found  was one of about 44 carats.    Speaking of conditions in South Africa,   he  stated that the whole of the country  from the Transvaal to the Cape was  passing through a time of deep   depression, and from the standpoint of  a    workingman    those countries at  present were   very   good   places   to  keep away from.     Men were   working, on the streets   of  Johannesburg  Jfor���$1.30,. pier 4��y��. vyh'hj' in  Capetown the  scale  of wages was  even  lower being about 81 cents and difficult to get at that.

"person  a  from  genuine attempt on both -sides to  forget the past." The sanitariums  in the Transvaal -were filled with  patients���miners from the Rand  suffering from the effects of the  dust, and even the kaffirs were now  fighting shy of work-in the  mines for the same reason.  /.;'.

The  propo&ty of the company which most  inteiests Mr. Ferguson is the Duncan'group,* near' Beaverdell, which  ho visited this week,.in company  with Jas. Summers. Answering a  few queries from a Pioneer representative, Mr. Ferguson expressed  himself as highly pleased with the  mineral showing at the mine, which  is a high-grade silver-lead proposition, but beyond the -above sentiments, he had little to add. "The  work of sacking ore at the mine is  proceeding smoothly, about seventy  sacks being, already prepared for  shipment, which when the smallness  of the staff is taken into consideration,, speaks well for the accessibility of the ore supply. The average assays run in the neighborhood of $100 per ton," although  picked ' samples -' have returned1 as  high as $173 per ton.      >���  "!-  Mr. Ferguson is prominent in the  business circles of the city' on the  Canadian Thames, and while in the  west was apprised of "his re-election  to ;the- presidency/tof,  the   .Ontario  '  t      (I  I   �� 4  t   ' I  ifl  It.  and  i their  mountain, 'adjacent to Nelson,  fer^op,��rations,  o  was    is considered that the deal is of  the   Boundary  utmost importance   to   the   city   of  Iea&ues-      The  Nelson,  as   the   Consolidated   com  party is expected to employ   a large  force of men on   development  e,;surprise   being.';smantfested   atl Van,couvervwlanc& where he^is sub-  :ir  absence. , - According  to   Mr. I stantiaily" interested''4 in'upwards.of-  ...:j .. : *. ikT-i '     '���!

MORRIN THOMPSON  Phoenix, B.C.  -,    * B. C. Mineral- Exhibit  While at the Lethbridge dry farming congress, the minister of agriculture for British Columbia, Hon. Price  Ellisont was much impresse.d .with  the mineral exhibit made there by the  Cranbrook Board of Trade. Upon inquiry, he found that the preparation  of this collection was largely due to  the energy of Mr. Joseph Ryan, police  magistrate of Cranbrook, who also  was in charge of its staging at Leth-  bridge. Mr. Ellison at once entered  into an arrangement with Mr. Ryan  for supplementing the collection with  a number of specimens in the  possession of the government's  mineral museum and taking the  whole to the Chicago land show. In-  forniation received from Mr. W. E.  Scott, the deputy ministei, is to the  effect that the mineial -exhibit is  attracting very special attention, and  that Mr. Ryan is making full and  valuable use of the opportunity to  impress visitors to the Chicago show  with the immense mineral wealth  and possibilities of   this    province.

"The   present  clay war  correspondent,   "he  says,  "is being killed by his own weight."  Time was when a dozen or so correspondents was about   the   maximum  number, but it now requires a whole  train to pack them about.    He says:  "One knows the familiar   picture  of the war correspondent in popular  fancy.     I believe he survives in   the  faked   illusions   of   cinematographs  still���a savage figure, with revolver  in each hand, pen   in mouth,    despatches on his   heart,   field-glasses,  cartridge   belt,    and    bowie    knife  swinging round him,   like   presents  on   a   Christmas-tree    exposed    to  storm, as he gallops''hell for leather''  through bursting shells and   charging lances to the   nearest   telegraph  station,   bearing   fiery   words   upon  which the fate of nations will depend.  It is a lovely picture.     On my  soul,  I wish it were true! But it is equally  false with all the other pictures of war  1 have ever  seen.     Here   I   and   70  others sit.     We sit in quite houses,  watching the   rain   fall   upon   filthy  but peaceful  streets.     We   sit   in  a  town where one man thinks he heard  the sound of a distant   gun   at  four  o'clock yesterday.    That is our only  consolation���cur     one    connection  with war,���and  I am far from   saying the man's pride in his hearing is  unfounded.    Far away over the great  'plain���beyond  the  frontier   gate   of  Mustafa     Pasha���some      sixty     or  them,'hut the notion never was true.  Least of all is it true of a great war  "of liberation like ihe present.  British Officer on Thb Sikhs  An interesting visitor lo,Viclori,i ��>.  Captain Osborne, ,deputy* manager  of the Eastern Bengal state railway,!  who resides in Calcutta, but is here  on furlough. Naturally'the captain  takes some interest in the Hindu  problem in British Columbia.  "The Sikh is an agrciulturalist,"  says the captain, "and makes an excellent farmer as soon as he gets acquainted with local conditions.  There  is great land hunger  among   them,  and they look anxiously to a country  where they can get a freehold in land,  such as some parts   of  the   empire  hold out to their immigrants.     1 believe you would find scarcely a belter  class of settler in the   world   to   develop   British    Columbia    than    the  Sikh, but you have  to  look   at   the  question of   policy,   of whether yoii  want development by Oriental races.  That is the  crucial   subject   for   dei  cisioo.    Remove   the   difficulties'  of  admission, and you can   get severaj  thousand   Sikhs   here as   easily  as  possible, but whether you wish them  or not there is a moral right  to   the  admission    of   the   wives   of    men  already here.    I   do   not   think   the  Sikh is a man whose morals   would  have a bad effect on the community  as some represent, as   they   are   regarded   as among the   most   moral  races in India.  "There are    three   things    vyhich  must not be disturbed with the Sikh;  his religion, his female associations,  and   his   land.      Otherwise   a   Sikh  community   can   be   made   to   vote  pretty much as its leaders direct, and  if the   franchise   was   given   to   the  Hindus here, I  believe   that   by   influencing the leaders aright, not  by  bribery,  but    by    the    fufilment    of  bpecfic  promises,   the    Hindu   vote  would go en bloc for the institutions  friendly to him.  This isa possibility  of the franchise which   may have   to  be considered.

The chief  warlike horrors to which we are exposed are the atrocious price of meals  in the hotel, and the difficulty of  getting our washing done.  To be sure, we have hope to   live  on.   War is a slow process   at   the  best.     This, war is. still less   than   a  week old.     Everything has gone as  was expected, and gone well   up   to  now.     The allied   armies   advanced  steadily over the frontiers, the Turks  steadily retired.     Nothing   else was j  to be expected at  the   beginning   of I  such a war, and the initial skirmish-j  es, however encouraging, are not of j  vital importance either   way.    Great  battles,   perhaps   great   sieges   and i  attacks  of   fortified    positions    will j  come,   and   if   the   railway   remains j  fairly   clear the correspondents   will  be permitted to   witness   something  of the 'operarions* from a   safe   and  comfortable  distance.

Rogers, Win. Jenks and A.  Shaw, who have been hunting for the  past few days in the district around  Canyon City, returned on Monday  laden with the spoils of the chase, consisting of eleven fine deer, all they  could pack out. The nimrods brought  back an excellent report, as to the  abundance of deer, which under tho  existing provincial game laws, are on  the increase. With one or two exceptions the mowitch was bagged at close  range, and on several occasions after  the hunters had secured their quota,  the animals came quite close and  could scarcely be scared away. The  party also report coming across evidence of the presence of cougars,  the slaughtered carcase of one deer being found.

The Pioneer is charged with "grossly   misrepresenting facts pertaining  to the   Granby   bay   townsite," but  with the   exception   of one inadvertent error���that  of the townsite being situate across  the  bay, we find  little else   to retract.     We however  point out, without prejudice, that .so  far from   the   townsite  being  only  800 or  900 feet   removed   from the  smelter site, the actual distance according to an   official blue print appears to us   to be   nearer 1800 feet.  It  is   quite   true,   as   the   company!  with   the  high-sounding name   has  pointed   out,   the   Granby   Consolidated   have   not   as  yet   registered  the   proposed   townsite  of   Anyox,  which   by   reason    of  its   nearness  to the mines will   be   the most conveniently situated town for the mine  employees,   but  its   registration   is  but a   short   time off, when   its lots  will be   open   for   public   purchase.  We   would   further   point' out that  the   proportion   of   men   to   be employed   in'the   smelter   is   consider-  ablys smaller   than   that   to   be  engaged   in   the   mines,   and   in   this  fact we   do   not  see   why   any emphasis should be  laid on the Granby  Bay townsite's nearness lo   the proposed Hidden  Creek .smelter, which  lor some time   to   come  will have a  capacity of but less than halt of thai  at   Grand   Forks,     Wc  cannot  too  strongly   impress   upon our readers  the necessity of extreme care in the  distinguishing   of   the   lots    of   the  Granby Bay townsite and those thai  we understand'will   shortly be offered for   sale by   the (i raiiby Consolidated company.  Skating and Curling Rink  Work for tho past few days on  the rink has been centred on the  erection of the curling portion,  which is well under away. All the  big arches of the main building are  now in pjace, the last one being  hauled into position on Friday.  Word was- received on Wednesday  to the effect that the iron covering  for the roof had been shipped from  Vancouver and in all probability  would be on hand about Thursday  next. The gang has been somewhat  reduced in numbers for the present,  and until the arrival of the roofing  there will be little need for the services of other than skilled carpenters.

Crossley,  two hardy   woodchoppcrs,  are seriously meditating on   the high  price  of chicken  mulligan stews  in Phoenix,  especially   when  the  fowls are  procured without the customary exchange   of  lawful  currency.       The  above parties  having decided   on a  feast of chicken fricasse, proceeded  to the chicken  house of the Deanc  hotel and, without   the   propriety of  asking permission helped themselves  to a few of  Danny's  prime pullets.  Bill  Samson,   the   night  chef, who  was quietly  meditating on the proper pose  for   a  photograph he was  going    to   have    taken,    distinctly  heard the old   rooster expostulating  with     the    intruders    and    quickly  aroused   the   proprietor   who   came  up with the  chicken lifters  near the  postoffice and after ornamenting the  countenance of one and sending the  other into slumberland, handed them  over to   the care  of Chief ot Police  Docksteader.      The   accused   were  subsequently arraigned before Wm.  Delahay,   acting police  magistrate,  who marked his disapproval of their  actions   by   inflicting a   fine  of $20  and costs or thirty days in jail.  Mrs. W. C. Chalmers of Grand  Forks, was a visitor in town during  the week.  Seven Months in the North  Eric Jackson returned to town on  Saturday last after an absence of  nearly seven months in the northern  portion of the interior. Mr. Jackson, who left here in May last, joined  a land surveying outfit at Edmonton  and proceeded via the Yellowhead  pass as far as Tetc Jaune Cache.  He reports numbers of settlers pouring into the north, the objective  point of the majority being the  Grand Prairie district which is filling  up with startling rapidity.  Thp treacherous old Eraser, oui  informant says, is exacting a hea\ \  toll on human life this year, no less  than 26 bodies being taken from  one eddy. Forest fires have also  been extremely destructive in the  north during the past season, large  areas of valuable timber being  wiped out. The timber on the Alberta side is not of much account,  all the forests of merchantable timber being on the British Columbia  side of the interprovincial boundary  line. The party, which comprised  twelve persons, lost one of its members in a drowning accident, and returned over the same route they  went in.  G. G, Rowe, nephew of Mr. and Mif.  Jus.
