During the fiscal year   ending June  30 the company produced 25,746,059  pounds of copper at a cost of 10.66  cents per  pound.     Its   copper was  sold at an average   of   15.87   cents,  resulting in net earnings of $929,165.  At the end of its fiscal year Granby's  net surplus of cash and quick assets  was $3,668,087.  The year under review includes  the six months following/ the" out-  break of the European war, during  practically all of which period Granby's mine at Phoenix and'smelter at  Grand Forks were idle, and its Hidden Creek property was then preparing to begin production and in the  initial stages of its operations. The,  figures of the report, therefore, in tio  way reflect either the" company's"  current productions or earnings. At  the present' timev- Granby's profit-  I must be at the rate of $20^or\iiaore,7  extent of "the park' is enormous, and  the warden states that "he could  not imagine game to be so plentiful  as it is at present on that reserve."

The men ofthe Signal Hill battery  at Esquimault were engaged in  target practice last week with"the  9.2 guns. The target measured  six feet square and the range was  about five miles. The shooting is  reported to have been very good.  Last week the B.C.

Probably no district in the Dominion of Canada possesses so great an array of  potentialities as the above. The mountains throughout its entire length and breadth,  are almost without exception mineraliferous, containing gold, silver,1 copper, iron and  other valuable ores, while in a few localities there  are more than surface indications  of the presence of coal.  i        ���.  FOREST AND  MINERAL WEALTH  Its forest stretches are among the richest in the province,' and what is of great  importance, easily accessable to river and railway.    There is scarcely a square mile of  it that is not either equipped with high tension wires, or which could   not  be  reached  ,Mby the expenditure of the smallest outlay.    Not the least attraction from the point of  view of the investor, is the sites for water power, which abound in this district.  Just at present an immense amount of interest is being directed to the recent  free gold discovery in Greenwood, while in the same district is to be seen one of the  best equipped free gold properties in the west, a not inconsiderable asset in these days  of industrial depression and shrinkage of gold reserves. It is in this district where-is  \ situated the Bhoenix and Grand Forks properties of the Granby Consolidated, te-  ., gether with those of the British Columbia Copper company. In the former camp, and  surrounding it for miles on all sides, are acres of crown-granted mineral claims, all  awaiting the advent of the investor. The title deeds to these properties, thanks to a  beneficent series of mining laws, are unimpeachable, and if proof is wanted of the  statement, let us point to the almost entire absence of mining litigation in the courts  of the province.  AGRICULTURE AND FRUIT-GROWING CENTRE  The possibilities'pf the Boundary as an agricultural and fruit-growing centre  are also worthy of investigation, and a visit  to some  of its   spendidly- equipped orchards will prove a revelation to the stranger.     The highways throughout the Boundary makes this section of the^prpvince the motorists paradise, millions having been  "spent on the construction of government roads.  No localityis better served  with railroads  than  the  Boundary district.      At  present this section is served by two of the greatest systems on the continent, the  C. P. R. and Great Northern.companies, while within a few months the route to the  Pacific coast  will  be commercially curtailed  by the opening of the new K. V.

A pair of socks, donated by a  lady in Victoria, B.C., have been  acknowledged by a soldier of the  Australian army who is serving iri  the Dardenelles operations.

The extreme  age of the Emperor  of Austria, and the question of succession, are  causing  great  anxiety  in Vienna.     The  heir   to the throne  is the  Archduke  Charles, a nephew  of     the   victim     of    the   Sarajevo  tragedy, and his wife is a daughter  of the   Duke   of  Parma.    Both the  father and grandfather *of Austria's  future   empress   were   adjudged insane,   and   of her nineteen brothers  and sisters,  eighteen were imbecile.  During   an   inquiry by  a  marine  court at  Copenhagen   into  the   torpedoing    of    the   Danish   steamer  Froude by a   German submarine  in  the North sea, the crew of the vessel stated   that   in   their opinion the  loss   of the   vessel   was   due   to   a  German sailor  who after producing  false    papers     was   signed    on    at  Buenos Ayres.      The  man  claimed  Norwegian nationality.     As soon as  the vessel was  stopped   by  the submarine, the  man   declared he was a  German and was taken on board the  plunger,   which  afterwards   fired   a  torpedo.    The crew presumed  that  this   was   in   revenge   for their  unfriendly comments  on the Germans  which they  uttered  in   the presence  of the supposed  Norwegian.    Two  of the  crew  were  killed  by  the explosion.  Adam Bloomfield, Noble Grand, j  Thos. Lloyd, Fin. Secy.  Mark Rukin, Rec. Secy.

In  the past, Mr. Cronin has   done considerable development work and the  showing was so encouraging that he  felt justified in this further expenditure.
