C COPPER SMELTER  RUNNING AT FULL BLA^T  Increased Activity  at   Company!s /*Mines ��� Cyanide  Mill Under Construction at Napoleonf J  The second enlarged furnace at  the British Columbia Copper company's smelter was blown in last  Sunday, giving the reduction works  a daily capacity of from 2000 to  2500 tons of ore, and will result in  increased activity at all the properties/operated by the company.  The enlargements to the battery  of furnaces represent an increase of  33 per cent, over the previous capacity, the additions built to two of  the three furnaces, being equivalent  to ajourth unit.,, The two furnaces  at either end were lengthened ten  feet, out ward, increasing the size of  each by 50 per cent.,,r 4  The smelter will now be operated  at full blast and will treat the ore  from the Rawhide mine at Phoenix,  as well as the output of the company's mines and a small tonnage  of custom ores.  ;At the Mother Lode, mine, the  company's principal shipper, a .full  force will again: i-be, Employed*Tand  thfe output of the mine increased to  1500 tons daily,"while the Rawhide  wi)l ship 700 tons and the Jack Pot  about 150 tons in the same period.  The Oro Denoro is being closed  temporarily as the ore from the other  mines contain sufficient iron for  fluxing purposes at the smelter.  With the price of copper so low the  management aims to operate the  properties so as to get profitable  returns from concentrating its operations on the larger properties with  resulting lower operating costs.  Development work is being carried on as usual at the Jack Pot  mine, in Wellington camp, and its  output will also Be increased. The  aerial tram line now under construe-  tion from   the' Lone   Star   mine   to  i,  - '  ^'Q&ujndary Falls, will be completed  in the course of a few weeks, when  this property will also contribute an  increased tonnage to the company's  smelter.  The Rawhide mine was the principal shipper of the Dominion Copper  company which went into liquidation  and whose assets were purchased  by the New Dominion Copper company, in May, 1909. Early this  year the latter cprporation passed  into the control of the British Columbia Copper company, which has  assumed active management of the  properties.  Considerable drilling and development work has been done and  surface improvements made this  year at the Rawhide, which is   now  .*%.  employing 120 men and has entered  the list of regular shippers again.,V.,  A new cyanide mill is now in  course of erection at the British  Columbia .

The plant will  be   operated  by  steam,   though  a  company  is  now   negotiating with  the intention of developing power in  the district,' and as soon' as  their  product is on the market the British  Columbia company is  prepared   to  change its method at the Napoleon:  x^'The  Napoleon   has Jiad  algreat:  deal of development work done on  it, exposing a,large tonnage of good  -milling "breV\the  same"** being!  the  oxidized' portion   of the  ore  body  overlying the  undeebmposeel sulphides; the latter will continue   to  be  shipped .to ...the .reduction  works at  Greenwood, .tne   oxidized ; portion  being milled at the mine.    The gold  will be extracted in two stages, the'  S ���  first by amalgamation and the  second by treating the residue with  cyanide' solution. A contract has  been let for the stripping of the  ground covering the oxidized ore,  work on which is now progressing.  Boundary Ore Tonnages  The total ore shipments from  Boundary mines show a consider-  able increase this week as a result  of the Rawhide being .again among  the shippers and increased tonnages  from the British Columbia-'Copper  company's properties. , The Granby  shipments, however continue to drop  but this is occasioned by an over-  supply of ore"1 being already- at the  smelter.

(Special to the Pioneer)  New York, Oct.  4.���The   annual  meeting of the Granby Consolidated  Mining, Smelting and Power company, held at the company's  office,  52 Broadway, today, resulted in the  election of a  practically  new  board  of   directors.   . The   retirement ( of  Jacob   Langeloth, George C. Clark,  George C. Clark, Jr., H. L. Higgin-  son, and Payne Whitney brought in  as directors  J.   B.   F.   HerreshofF,  Geo. W. Wooster, William Hamlin,  E. R. Nichols and Northrup Fowler,  'while   those   re-elected   were:    Jay  P. Graves, George   Martin   Luther,  William    A.    Nash,    William    H.  Nichols, W. H. Robinson,   Sanford  H.    Stole,   Edwin   Thorne,   A.    L.  White,    Berthold   Hochscbild,   and  Arthur Curtiss James.  A��a subsequent meeting of the  directors the following officers were  elected: 'George Martin Luther,  president; Jay P. Graves, vice-president and  general   manager;   Edwin  Thorne and W. H. Robinson,*vice-  presidents i Geo., WV Wooster, treas-  urer;   Northrup  Fowler,   secretary.  ' The retiring president, Jacob  Langeloth, was the . largest individual shareholder.  The statement for the fiscal year  shows net profits to have been $564,-  946. Profit and loss surplus is $2,-  464,370, as compared with $2,698,-  687 a year ago. The actual cost of  mining this year is $2.70, a decrease  of 41 cents as compared with j^st  year.  The newly elecJtgeJLdirectorate suggests that those in accord with the  progressive policy of General Manager Graves are now in control and a  general expansion of the company's  operations is now looked for. The  company has $900,000 cash in bank,  which it proposes to use in development work and and in the purchase  of new properties, some of which  have been under consideration for  some time.  ���?;'  amMummimsB w  H-'-WtpfH ww-v��� i*r% /> ��"Ci^ ^  ^�����w^jiw '     i.* s, 71 \.y   ',, .v��*. *���.���. s ,���     ' ,<M  *<���>;  # An unscrupulous politician might      The following are entitled to hatfe  "X  tage, but^uch^tactics"on^the%art of  aJ,reli^ious%ojdy for the  purpose" of  calls for the con-  fe^'ptl-rath^fftthah^sympathy  from  fair minded citizens.        - .   -^.-./  Any'Bntish subject;--male   or fe~  Ma;*^��^ ^*''   t ���vfcalled  AttorneyiGeneral Bowser to the al-  lfeged:^ non-observancety of license  regulations���iri the1 town iof^Phoenix.
