S MINES  GRAN BY SHARES CLIMBING FOUNDATION FOR NEW  SCHOOL IS COMPLETED  Rawhide Increases Shipments-  New Work at Athelstan  The feature of the week at Boundary, mines is the increased - activity  at the New Dominion   Copper company's  properties.     The  ore  shipments  from   the   Rawhide   to   the  British    Columbia- Copper  smelter  have jumped  to  an   average of 600  tons for seven  days  in   the   week.  This  has   resulted   from  improved  shipping- facilities at the mine by the  construction of additional chutes and  other development workr    The riew  work has been decidedly encouraging*  and    with    the    British    Columbia  people in control the property is enhanced   as   a   mine;  a  progressive  policy is being carried out and there  is every indication that the Rawhide  will be an important producer during  1911.    About 180 men are now em-  pi oyedy  At the Athelstan mine, also New  Dominion, some 15 men are employed and preparations are being  made to commence shipments, a  considerable tonnage having been  blocked out. , This property adjoin*  the Jackpot^ group in Wellingvbn  camp. Ore bins are now under  construction at the mouth of the  tunnel and from these a short tramway will be built to convey the ore  to the C. P. R. siding at the Jackpot  for shipment. The new work will  be completed by the end of the year,  when shipments will commence to  the British Columbia smelter.  Hedley Gold Mining: Co.  The net profits of the Hedley  Gold Mining cornpany for September  were $27,688* making a total of  $197,529 for the first nine months of  this year.  The company has been spending  about $100,000 in alterations, which  should be completed about the first  of the year. Monthly earnings after  the new plant commences operations  should average between $35,000 and  $40,000.  More ore is put in sight than actually extracted and the "in sight"  tonnage at the moment is very satisfactory.   4* :���_  Autos for Mining: Companies  Two handsome 35-horse power  Buick motor cars arrived at Greenwood yesterday, one for the British  Columbia Copper company and the  other for the New Dominion Copper  company. They will be a valuable  acquisition at the smelter as well as  a convenience for officials visiting  the mines.  Citizens of Grand Forks last week  bought 330 shares of Granby stock  on the Spokane exchange at $47.  To the Granby shareholder at a distance or Outside men with money to  invest this statement will perhaps  convey more re-assuring information  than a column of reading matter  concerning conditions at the Granby  properties. The purchasers of the  stock referred to above are intimate  with conditions at both the mine  and smelter.  SCARCITY OF OFFERINGS  ��� (  Boston Commercial : Granby's  sharp advance appears to have been)  due to both inside and general buying, and an extreme, scarcity of offerings. It advanced on a very small  volume of transactions, this reflecting the great confidence which the  stockholders have in the property  and its management.  Stockholders are to be congratu-.  lated on the energy and progressive,  spirit  shown   by  the   management  which   they  elected   at   the   recent  annual meeting.    A new property of  apparently  great   value   has   been  taken  under^ optrotf^bne-paymettt1  made and the direction of its mining  operations taken over, I understand,  by Granby employes.   Between now  and July, when the final payment falls  due, the property will be thoroughly  tested and its value,, to   the   extent  at   least   of the   price  to   be   paid,  proved beyond question.  Other desirabJe properties may-be  purchased   later,   with   the  end    in  view   of giving Granby  practically  unlimited ore resources, and making  it one of the world's very important  low   cost   copper   producers.       The  original   Granby ^property, is  being  explored by diamond drills.     Development  of its other ^assets will be  taken   in   hand   in. due   time,    and  eventually the stock may   be   worth  as an investment the  highest   price  for which it ever has sold.    On reactions Granby should   be   bought,  both for speculation and investment;''  PROBABILITY OF DIVIDENDS  The following article is taken  from the U. S. Investor of Nov. 12,  though since it was printed Granby  shares have sold up to $47:  Despite the general optimistic  feeling regarding the ';'position and  future of the metal market as a  whole, there are doubtful spots in  the share market which are in decided contrast to the general brightness. There is, for instance, a  pretty general feeling of doubt  among the shareholders of . the  Granby Consolidated Mining, Smelting & Power company, largely because of the fact that these shareholders have not  as  yet recovered  from the shock of the now famous  Sussman report of last spring to the  effect that the company had less  than 6,000,000 tons of ore in sight,  a report which caused the stock to  dive from $83 to $37 per share within, the space of three days. Incidentally,, it has not recovered much  of its lost prestige in the meantime,  for.-jt is. now selling around $38 per  share. Nevertheless, there has been  talk, and not entirely without reason,  of a. resumption of dividend payments. For the 1910 fiscal year,  the company earned $3.80 per share  with copper at less than 13 cents  per pound, and at the present time,,  it is undoubtedly earning in excess  of $4 per share.  Despite the fact that the'directors  failed to take definite action   on the  dividend at their meeting last week,  and in the face of the fact that some  important interests in the company  have expressed themselves as being  opposed to a,distribution   to  shareholders at the present time, it would  occasion no great surprise if a dividend were to be declared at a comparatively"earlydate,;and "be" 'main-,  tained. thereafter.     Despite repeated  evidences that the   Sussman report  was unduly bearish, or that its true  tenor has   been misunderstood, the  smaller shareholders have never lost  the fear that their mine had four or  five years more of life, with nothing  more ahead of it after that but liquidation, and the insiders are evidently  convinced that the best way to bring  back his lost confidence would be to  return   some of the  profits to   the  shareholders.     Certainly,   the   predicted advance in the selling price of  the 'metal', would mean a great  deal  to Granby, and would go far towards  removing it from   the  class  of propositions   whose .resources   have a  definite limit, a class in which it has  been   placed, justly  or  unjustly by  the Sussman report.  Contract for Balance of Building  To Be Let Saturday  The stone foundation for the new  school was completed  on   Wednesday���one month from the letting of  the contract.    It is not only a substantial  but an  imposing piece of  stonework  and   will  stand  to   the  credit of the school board and of the  contractor as   well.    Contractor P.  H. Cosgrove  has  made a splendid  showing  with   the   opportunities at  his disposal.    Suitable stone is. at a  premium around Phoenix, but he secured the  best   there was and with  expert masons the foundation speaks  for itself.  It was important that the stonework should be completed before  the arrival of snow and cold weather,  so that'the framework could be* built  during the winter, and iu this Mr.  Cosgrove has made good. After  the letting of the contract excavating  had to be done, lime, cement and  sand shipped in and stone blasted in  order >jf>^proceed.;,,/The foundation  is now ready for the framework, the  contract for which will be let by the  school trustees next Saturday.  ^^~~~Boundary Ore Tonnages  Following are the returns of the  output of the mines and smelters of  the Boundary district for the week  ending Nov. 19 and for year to date:  Granby 18,352  Mother Lode   9,335  Jackpot ..:-.;....     714  ,Oro Denoro  Rawhide .. 1 4,200  Snowshoe . . ... .  2,400  Number Seven...     250  Sally...

Operations on the Greenwood-  Phoenix tunnel resumed on Monday,  22 men being employed.  A transaction in the-shares of the  newly formed Myers Creek Coal and  Coke company took place in Phoenix last week, three shares selling;  at $31.  The Little Bertha mine, on the  north fork of the Kettle river, shipped a carload of ore to Granby  smelter recently. The ore values  ran $40 to the ton.  The Tip Top and Bay mines, in  Skylark camp, are being operated  by small forces. It is the intention  to ship  some  ore   by  sleighs this  winter.  Granby's Victoria shaft shipping  outlet was idle for a couple of days  this week, the crusher being given  an overhauling. It is again in operation. Good progress is being made  on the tunnel which is to replace the  old No. 3 shipping outlet. A raise  is also being made which will divert  an increased tonnage to the 400-foot  level for shipment through the Victoria shaft.  35,25i ,1,478,081  SMELTER TONNAGES  Granby 18,655        908,243  B.C.

That it will be some time before  the Grand Triink Pacific will be in a  position to announce the locationaof  the townsite of Fort George,'' is; the  statement ;of Ci ' Wssedein, chief  clerk of the land department of the  railway company, who ��� was in Edmonton a few days ago on business  in connection with the townsite  property at Edson.  "It all depends upon whether we  secure��� the ; Indian .reserve at Fort  George.    If we do not -secure  this  property it is altogether likely that  we will have to  move bur townsite  away from there altogether.  . There  has been  nothing  definitely settled  yet   regarding  that ' townsite,"   he  said.    "It seems to me," continued  Mr.'Wisedein, "that'ttfe government  of the country-should take steps to  put*a stop to thcundue  speculation  in   townsite   subdivisions   that    is  going  on.

South America was the  magnet for a   time, then   came the  United States, and   Canada is now  the Mecca  of the  progressive pilgrimage.    The last and best west is  British Columbia, with its illimitable  natural  resources, forest, mine and  sea.   It has been said that the twentieth century belongs to Canada and,  before   the   first   quarter    of  that  period has passed into history this  province   will  have  come   into  its  own.���Provinces1. -  Toronto,    Montreal,    Winnipeg,    Vancouw,    St. John, W.B.,    Hamilton.    _  Wor sfle *y tnB Moriin-Thompson Company  Calgary  Hotel Brooklyn  The Only First-Class and Up-To-Date  Hotel in  Phoenix.

Fifteen Cent Copper in Slight *  So largely does copper enter jrito  all branches of the world's work that  j its, moyement may   be   tak.en.as a  barometer, of business conditions the  country over.     If copper  is low, it  can. be taken for granted that^'practi-  callyv-ev��rything;else is low, without  a glance at other metals and indus-'  trials,     iif copper  be rising, practically all   other  stables  are sure to  rise in  sypathy;   if it be good  for  copper  to  rise, if conditions justify  its   advance,   then   the   same {>- conditions justify < ah   advance  in   all  other speculative,values..   Just now  copper is rising, and there is  every  indication that it will continue to advance   in   price. ��� Corrective   measures have decreased production anil  as sales of  the copper now  visible  have increased,' everything portends  to a gradual increase in the price of  the red   metal.    Idle ' money would  do well to survey the copper.field'  before moving.     Real estate has its  virtues no doubt, but copper shows  more virility than any other thing in'  view at this time.  ��� Conservative investors are gathering up coppers in'  preference to other investments for  big profits.  : Copper is as  much of  a necessity almost as breadstuflfs, so  widely has it entered into the countless forms of manufacturing, and as  the demand for it  is  increasing its  price is bound to rise.  Fifteen cent copper seems one of  the few sure things, aside from lawmaking, tariff discussion and taxes.
