Reports  for the year ended June 30th, 1909, were presented showing an average cost  of copper production of 10 cents per pound, against 10.24 cehts the previous  year, and 10.14 and 8.35 cents respectively in 1907 and 1906; an average  price received for copper of 13.22 cents comparing with 13,33 cents in the  previous year; silver averaging 51.25 cents against .56.25 cent? last year.  There was produced slightly more copper and precious metals than in  the previous year, copper increasing 800,000 pounds, silver; 33,000 ounces,  and gold 5000 ounces. Total surplus stands at $2,698,687; cash and copper  total $600,459; while the company carries among its assets $981,503 in stocks  and bonds. .,  In comparison the annual report shows:  1909  Copper, lbs 21,901,528  S^.oz       335,521  Gold, oz         4Sl76i  J'0" $3,983,536  Charges, etc   3,302,402  Net profits      681.134  Dividends       270,000  Surplus       4'1,134  * Deficit.  Including all expenses, it cost Granby $3.20 a ton of ore, which, after,  deducting gold and silver values, reduced the cost to 10 cents per pound of  copper. There was expended on mine explorations $74,841, interest charge  was $82,786, while additional mining properties cost $11,952. The net surplus on June 30 last stood at $2,698,687.  In mine development, 9707 feet was done; diamond drilling comprised  8328 feet. There were 964,789 dry tons of Granby ores, and 19,944 tons of  foreign ores treated.  On June 30 the balance sheet showed as follows:  Assets:  Cost ol land, machinery, etc .   $15,452,996  Stocks and bonds .       981,503  Fuel and store supplies        136,800  Cash and copper         600^459  T��tal . ...  ...

These remodelled furnaces have given satisfaction, and great savings have been affected. During  the rebuilding smelting operations were conducted under difficulties, affecting  costs to a considerable extent, especially in the earlier part of *thev year. In  consequence of forest fires in August, 1908, no fuel could be had for several  weeks, and over one-half of the works had to be closed down.    * ;  The expected improvement did not materialize in the price[ of copper,  mainly on account of the very large production, which for a.considerable part  of the fiscal year exceeded consumption, and thisjigjo a few^mjgnths.jwas-cojv  siderably belbw-what it'wasduring'the perTod'prior to the panic. 7 Of late  these conditions have changed materially for the better.  A. B. \V. Hodges, the local manager of the property, |n reporting for the  year says: The mines shipped to the smelter during the past year 963,510  tons of ore, against 858,432, and the smelter treated 984,733 tons of dry ore,  including 19,944 tons of custom ore, which was only 100,000 tons more than  the previous year. Our tonnage could easily have been over the million mark,  but it was thought to be opportune time to enlarge our smelter and convertor  capacity.  At the mine little or no new construction work was undertaken. The  grade of ore last year was not as good as the year previous, extraction being  21.8r pounds of copper, .2724 ounces of silver and .0434 ounces of gold per  ton. This was for the reason that in some places of the 400 and 300 levels  and near the surface we had to take out pillars and cave down lots of ore, and  in doing so everything comes down between the walls, and consequently the  grade is lower, but this is offset by reduced mining costs.  In connection with the smelter enlargement everything is finished except  two blast furnaces, which are now undergoing alteration and should be finished  in Octobei.  The convertor plant now has a capacity of 40,000,000 pounds a year.  By October the smelting plant will be in the highest state of efficiency, as all  the blast furnaces will be practically new, convertor plant new and new fireproof buildings over all the machinery. With enlarged and improved smelting plant and continuous operations the total cost per pound should be further  reduced from 10 cents  Geo. L. Walker, the copper critic of the Boston Commercial, comments  on Granby's annual report as follows:  "The showing of the Granby must be considered a very favorable one  when it is taken into consideration that the work of enlarging the smelter was  going on throughout the year, and that only about 75% of the company's total  reduction capacity was in use. Another matter which is not generally appreciated is the system of bookkeeping employed by the Granby company. It  is probable that Granby has expended approximately $1,000,000 on smelter  reconstruction, enlargements and improvements, mine equipment, etc., during  the past few years which has been charged against the cost of making copper.  It is estimated that it expended $250,000 on construction last year, or nearly  $2 per share. If this were subtracted from the operating account, as is the  custom in analyzing mining statements, it would reduce the cost of its copper  below nine cents per pound and make its net earnings nearly $7 per share.  "All of the Granby's furnaces have now been enlarged and are in corn-  commission. From this time forward it should produce between 30,000,000  and 35,000,000 pounds of copper annually at a cost of eight-and a-half to nine  cents per pound, and earn between $S and $9 per share on its stock on a 13  cent copper market. There is no possible question, therefore, that Granby  stock at its present price is one of the best investments to be found on the  copper share list.  "It is rumored that the weakness of Granby stock recently is the result  of a tacit agreement among directors to issue the 15,000 shares of stock in the  treasury to stockholders at $75 per share. This would yield the company  $1,125,000, which is considerably more than it actually needs to pay off its  indebtedness, which was incurred when it purchased control of the Crow's  Nest Pass Coal & Coke company, from which it obtains its fuel supply. If  the stock is issued at as low a price as $75, it will be equivalent to an excellent  dividend to stockholders, as tlie rights to subscribe would probably sell between $2 and $4 per share. Gianby has sufficient money in its treasury to  pay a good dividend at present, and it probably will make another disbursement within two or three months."  '     "��� ���_  Boundary Side Lights  Supreme court sits at Greenwood on  the 26th inst., civil an criminal.  Bachelor Girls' club is the name of  a social organization   in Grand Forks.  Work has commenced on the construction of a, new curling rink in  Grand Forks.  ..Martin Burrell, M.'P. is a judge of  fruit at the provincial exhibition at N_w  Westminster.  Kettle valley fruit growers are preparing an exhibit for the National  Apple show in Spokane next month.  Angus McDonald and Hugh Mc1-  Gillivray have rented the Kootenay  hotel, Greenwood, from Thomas  Walsh.  The new time card for this  division  ofthe  C.P.R.   will  come  into  effect  about the end of the month ; the Sun  day train will probably be discontinued.  Westward Ho! for October publishes  an article on fruit growing at Grand  Forks and contains three excellent  scenes of ranches in the Kettle valley.  Greenwood curling club has reorganized for the season with the following officers: President, H. McCut;  cheon; vice-president,, H. Bunting;  secretary-treasurer, G.' B. Taylor; exec-,  utive committee, Messrs. McMynn,  Frith, Summers and Birnie.  Rev. T. G. McLeod, who has been  pastor of the Presbyterian church at  Grand Forks for some years, will  preach his farewell sermon there tomorrow. He.has been appointed to  Creston for the winter months and has  received a call from Kaslo Presbyterian  congregarion, a former charge.  : Rev. N. Powell of Nelson, district  chairman of the Methodist church,  visited Phoenix this week. Under new  arrangements in the Boundary Rev.  R. W. Hibbert, who has had charge  of Phoenix and Greenwood, will become resident pastor at Phoenix with  Rev. VV. J. Williams in charge! of  Greenwood.  THE CANADIAN KUBELIK  Matter Wilfred L. Small Will Give a Violin  Recital Here on Friday  , Master Wilfred L. Small, the Canadian JCubelik, will,gijffi,a violin���<recital  in Phoenix opera house on Tuesday  evening next, assisted by Percy S.  Hook, pianist. Lovers of music will  have a rare treat when they hear this  wonderful Canadian boy violinist, who  comes heralded as a musician of rare  skill, in fact, he has the makings in  him of a great virtuoso. The papers  everywhere he has appeared unite in  declaring him a wonderful   musician.  Students'  Recital  The pupils of Fridolph Werner will'  give a piano and violin recital inPhoe  nix opera house on Thursday evening,  Oct. 21st. Mr. Werner has a class of  thirty pupils and a number of them  have developed rare musical ability,  about fifteen of whom will take part.  The program will also include a number of vocal solos and selections by  the orchestra. A good audience should  be in attendance to encourage the  musical artists and give expression to  Mr. Werner's efforts on behalf of the  students   Hear   the   boy wonder  violinist  in  the opera house Tuesday night.  Oo Ihe War Patb  A. McRae, F. Tysoe, D. Biner, P.  Meachaum, J. Trumper and J. Doyle  leave today on a hunting expedition  up north. They expect to locate their  rendezvous about fifty miles north of  Greenwood for a couple of weeks and  operate a la Roosevelt fashion. No  buffaloes or lions will be destroyed.  Thanksgiving Dance  The annual Thanksgiving dance to  be given by Phoenix Oddfel'ows on  Oct. 25th promises to be the big event  of its kind in the Boundary this season.  Werner's four-piece orchestra has been  engaged for the occasion and D.  Deane will provide a turkey supper.  For a child of fourteen years, he has  won laurels in the musical world that  many violinists who are twice his age  would be proud of. 'i'he Vancouver  Province has the following to say of  him :  "Master Small is not a violinist in  the ordinary sense ofthe word, but a  player who bids fair to become an  artist, a virtuoso in every sense of the  word���simple, manly and unaffected  in manner, his playing captivates one  by its purity of tone, beauty of rythm  and wonderful technique. For, one so  young his faculty of fingering is truly  remarkable, his power of tone is as  great as that of a mature person, and  his musical temperment cannot be  underestimated."  Club Wins Appeal  Some months ago the mayor swore  out a complaint against T. B. Cos-  grove and C. J. McAstocker for selling  liquor in the city without a license, the  premises occupied by defendants being  known as the Phoenix Club. The  case was heard before Judge Hood,  who convicted the defendants and imposed a fine of $100. Messrs. Cos-  grove and McAstocker appealed the  case and J. D. Spence of Greenwood  represented them before the supreme  court in Vancouver, who reversed the  decision on the grounds that the Phoenix Club was a regularly chartered  institution. . It was also ordered that  the fine must be lefunded and that the  complainant pay the costs of the court.  The club will be reorganized.  ELECTRIFICATION OF  PHOENIX BRANCH  Reports of Engineers Now Being Considered v   77 7  Some weeks ago the Pioneer stated  t'"at the Canadian Pacific railway management was investigating the feasibility of the electrification' of its branch  into Phoenix city and that, with the  abundance of power at the front  door, the construction of an electric  railway system to handle transportation on Boundary .grades is but a  matf-r of time. . ' '  The Pioneer now learns from official  sources that the railway management  has received reports from the engineers  who looked over the route and that,  the matter is now under consideration.  It is further stated that the reports ate  of such a satisfactory nature that  actual work of construction will commence next summer.  Power will be secured from the West  Kpptenay. Power and. Light company  and the proposed line for initial electrification is from Phoenix to the  Granby smelter.  G. J.. Bury, general manager, of the  western lines of the C.P.R., accompanied by Grant Hall, superintendent  of motive, power,; and F. F. Busteed,  general superintendent of the -Pacific  division, was in the Boundary during  the week looking over the proposed  betterments and extensions. .:  it the Targets  D.

took occasion to say that* the government had:received no request from any
individual   for; permission  to import

on,'the. sections in question ordinary
laborers are receiving $2.50, $2.75 and
$3jpo'per day, and f are, charged, only
$5:25 a<week for their-, board.    The
commissioner came.to' ihe conclusion"
that the G.T.P. was paying a fair wage,

substantial grievance.    Wages will pro--

Copper Outlook
One of Ihe leading copper factors
in the United States, who was in
Boston yebteiday, says that there is
little likelihood ol copper selling below
13 cents ; that as a matter of fact, the
demand for the metal is steadily increasing and that within the past three
weeks there has been a material improvement in the foreign demand also.
This foreign demand he says is not
always reflected in exports. He thinks
it may be several months before
there is any material improvement in
prices beyond a possible fractional advance, but in the face of a steadily increasing consumption there is only one
outcome, and that is higher prices
He says that the surprising fact is
not that copper is not selling at above
13 cents per pound, but that it did
not go below 12 cents in the panic in
the face of large stocks and abnormally large product:on which latter
was largely caused by the placing on
the market of the new production from
the Utah Copper and Nevada Consolidated at a time when the demand
was limited.

John Oliver, Liberal member for
Delta in, the legislature, has been
chosen leader of the Opposition in
British Columbia. "Honest John"
Has been the target for many a shot
from Government speakers: and Con
servative press, but when it comes to a
man with a reasonably thorough grasp
ofthe political conditions and requirements of the coast province John can
make some of the best of his opponents
look small. With sufficient grit and
backbone to speak his mind and pos
sessed of ability to* formulate progressive ideas he has been a leading
factor in the Opposition. It is not to
be expected that Mr. Oliver can lead
his-forces to victory in the approaching
election, but a clean and telling fight
with a constructive policy may be
looked for with John Oliver as leader.
The interests of good mining are not
always served by the finding of rich ore.
True progress in the art is more apt to
be recorded in the low-grade mines,
especially, those containing Copper and
lead, where small economies may make
the difference between profit and'loss,
and so it cornea that tbft beat
lavsaUMRt It Now Miniac Caaps
The spirit of boosting is perhaps no-
iwhere in greater evidence than in the
young mining camps of the West.
'.Exercised within certain limits it indicates a healthy condition, without
[which great'developments would'never
be possible. It is' a demonstration of
hopefulness that encourages the strug

reason, the prospective investors would
ibe.wise to take a conservative course
and not allow themselves to be blinded
;by the sometimes too glowing stories
'of enthusiastic boosters. It is always
isafe to accept with a large discount the
.tales of prospective wealth that always
It is difficult to see' things in their
itrue light and perspective in a new
(mining camp, where every claim owner
is eager to sell or raise money for large-
scale development, and where, in all
probability, a large percentage- of the
claims may have little or no merit.
The'discrimination necessary to safeguarding an investment must be based
on something more tangible than the
hopes of the claim owners or the
representations of the professional
boosters. The latters' principal mission
is to attract attention and to keep up
interest, but final judgment must rest
with the engineer and the geologist.
It is safe to be cautious in investing
fn any camp that rises to prominence
after the manner of the sky rocket, as,
like Sylvanite, it may emulate the
rocket still further and take a tumble.
Because a camp's growth is rapid, is,
however, no proof that it will not have
permanence. After the first boom has
spent itself it will settle down to its
proper position in the scale of importance and either die or develop by

There are lots ol reasons for this, but  one ofthe best is lhat in practically all  cases of piles where the use ol Zam-  Buk is persevered with, complete cure  ���not merely relief���is the result.  Mrs. Wm. Hughes, of 253, Hoche-  laga Street, Hochelapa, Montreal, says :  "I suffered from blind, itching, and  protruding piles for years. Sometimes  they���were so bad that I could haidly  bearlo move about. The inflammation, the burning smarting pain, the  throbbing, the aching, the overpowering  feelings of dullness and dark despair  which this ailment brings, the shooting  spasms of agony���all were so terrible  that only sufferers from this awful  ailment can understand !"  Bad as this cise was, Zam-Buk  triumphed, and Mrs., Hughes suffers no  longer. It only needed a little perseverance with Zam Buk and'in the end  complete cure resulted  Mrs. A. Hoxall, of Scott  Street,  St.  bleeding piles.  I tried everything which I thought  would give me ease, but in the end,  dispirited and still suffering, I gave in."  Then it was she heard of Zam-Buk,  and she adds:���"Although I feared  Zam-Buk would be like the ordinary  remedies���useless���I am glad it was  not. It soon proved itself to be very  different. It rapidly gave me relief,  and after a time cured me completely.  i would like to let all sufferers from  piles know what a great thing Zam-Buk  is "'  ' Mr. F. Astndge, 3. St- Paul Street>  St. Catherine's, says -.���"For five years  I suffered untold agony from piles. At  times the pain was so bad I could have  screamed aloud. On a friend's advice  1 tried a box of Zam-Buk. It gave roe  considerable ease and I persevered  with the treatment until I was cured.  I wish I could convince every sufferei  from piles of the value of this great  herbal balm."  So one could go on quoting case  after case, and it is by working such  ciues that Zam-Buk has earned for  itself its great reputation.  Now if you suffer from this terrible  painful just be guided by the foregoing  cases!  For internal piles melt a "little Zam-  Buk and thoroughly soak a wad, made  cf clean, but old linen. Then apply  to the part. If the piles are external,  application of Zam-Buk is still more  simple. Do it upon retiring. Next  morming you will be well satisfied !  Zam-Buk is also a cure for cold-  sores, and chapped cracked hands,  ulcers, festering sores, blood-poisoning,  eczema, bad leg, ring worm, scalp  sores, burns, scalds, and all skin  diseases and .injuries.  All druggists and stores sell Zam-  Buk at 50c. a box, or may be obtained  post free from Zam-Buk Co., Toronto,  for price; 1 boxes for $1.25- You ar<:  warned, however, against cheap and  dangerous imitations sometimes offered  as being "just as good."  for 75 cents   while a goose brings in  75 cents.

Children need love, tenderness and  sympathy as much as flowers need  air and sunshine.  !     A happy  family   is   but  an earlier  heaven.  There never was a woman but was  just aching to tell some other woman  how, to do up her hair.  The reason why women do not propose is supposed to be due to the fact  that they want to have the last word.  It is worth a thousand dollars a year  to have the habit of looking on the  bright side of things.  To bring what pleasure and contentment into every life is the best way to  fill our own with beauty.  To make home happy \n an art���an  art a good many people have either  lost or never found.  There is nothing gained in the gov  ernment of children by threatening that  which is not performed.  Men can be found who are willing to  go to Africa as missionaries who are  not willing to take care of a cross baby  for the tired wife for half an hour.  Train your eyes 10 rest on the  brightest spots in life. Pass the darkness on the other side. One of the  sunniest places on earth is the spot  made sacred by. the hallowed influences  of those we love in our homes.  The time to have the brightest  lamps lit, the hottest supper ready, to  wear the gayest dresses and hunt up  the funniest stories in one's memory,  is the cold, rainy night, when there  will not be any company, but when the  home-coming husband, sons or brothers  will doubly enjoy the cheer.  -��� The father who is "chummy" with  his boy, gets down to that eager, inquiring, restless little soul and explains  and encourages, does not need to cut  a birch gad in. order, to .maintain discipline; and the mother who sympathizes, cuddles and plays with her  children can keep her slippers on her  feet and her hair-brush on the dressing  table. Children need love and sympathy as much as flowers need air and  sunshine. ,.        ". ....  .'.;._  The best way to keep the boys at  home is to make it an object for them  not to go out to seek amusements, for  these they will have. Every home  ought to be made a very heaven on  earth to its inmates. Learn each child's  nature, and then work some home  charm to keep them in your circle.  Of all places, praise should be most  lavishly used in the family circle. How  many of us keep all our words of kindness for strangers, for those in whom  we have not one spark of vital interest;  and to the hearts dependent upon us  for sympathy and appreciation, have  scarcely one cheery word. If we are  so niggardly in the expenditure of the  sweet charities of life that we cannot  squander commendations on the home  folks and strangers too, by all means  let the home folks come in first for  their share.  About a dozen men have been employed for some time past at the Noble  Five near Sandon. The work we believe, is not for the purpose of development in mining, but for completing the  case for a legal squabble with the  owners of the Last Chance.

Aak for Bonus on Z no  Overtures have recently been made  by Kootenay . men to. the, Dominion  government, with a view io having the  zinc industry in that district placed on  a bonus basis, something similar to the  present status of the lead mining  industry.

The capacity of the  present plant is 10 tons per day, but  this should be increased to 30 tons at  least, and there is a movement on foi  the raising of funds to go on with the  work. It is thought that this question  's of such economic importance that  the Dominion government should  assist this project and give it the backing that the Provincial government has.
