At the annual meeting of the Gran-1 leading from the steel flue chamber to  by Consolidated Mining, Smelting and j the stack was enlarged.    The charging  I'ower Company, Limited, held in  the New York office last week the retiring board of directors was re-elected;  also W. A, Nash, vice G. F. Baker, jr.  resigned. At a subsequent meeting  of-the directors the retiring officers  were also re-elected. The annual report of the company was submitted to  the., shareholders and unanimously  adopted. ���  -  In his address to the  shareholders,  President Langeloth said:  The new Victoria shaft and surface  equipment, jncluding crusher,...electric,  hoist, belt conveyor, etc., have now-  been in operation twelve months, and  have given satisfaction, both in quan-  tiiy of ore handled and economy of  cost.  The Curlew .tunnel was connected  by an upraise with the workings of the  Gold Drop mine, and the ore output "now c^mes through this tunnel,  he 'temporary outlet over anoiher  urnperty having been abandoned. Ai  the mouth of the Curlew tunnel, �����  complete equipment of ore bins, largi  rrusher, motor and conveyor hell for  'ading have been installed.    The tun-  system was greatly improved by install  ing larger locomotives and larger charge  cars.  As indicated in the last ;report, it  has been decided again to enlarge the  furnaces, which have worked very  satisfactorily. This will bejdone successively. One of the furnaces is now  being so enlarged, and if found satisfactory, the remaining seven will be  rebuilt as fast as practicable.;.  The old wooden blowing, engine  building has been removed and replaced by a new-ono-.of"^steelati'd  brick,"   anu  rOU NOW HAVE THE HOLIDAY SEASON  before you, and no doubt want to get through  it with as little worry as possible. We have  a LARGE STOCK ON HAND, and NEW  r,OODS COMING IN. Our prices are  reasonable, as you will find by comparison,  in fact, we are in a position to fill orders from  all Eastern Jewelry Catalogues, and save you  postage, and ofttimes more.     j*    ~*    J*���J*  WATCH THIS SPACE FOR PARTICULARS LATER.  JEWELER  2^23Q  iel is aWo equipped   with   an   electric  mulage system, consisting of electric  locomotive and cars, ^inotor generator  set, etc. Electric haulage was installed on the 400-ft. level of the Granby  mines, which connects the Victoria  shaft with all the lower workings. Tin's  latter consists of a 75 h. p. electric  locomotive and 20 steel cars, each  having a capacity   of about   six   tons.  They are self dumping and automatic  ��� n every way and were put in service  about January' 15th of this year.  The mechanical devices now in  operation, such as hoists, shafts, btlt-  r.onvi yors, mine cars and electric locomotives are able to handle about 5000  tons of i.ru daily. The mines shipped  to tht. smeller a total of 85.S,432 tons  ���hiring the past yi-ar against 644.549  tuns during"the ��� previous \<*ar. 'I'hr  ore mined ��as nut as good as in the  previi-us yi ar, carrjiirg about 1 lb. Ies**  of cupper anil 10 to 12c. less per ton  in gold and silver. The extraction per  ton of ore on the average was 2342  lbs. copper, 0.2865 oz. silver and .0454  oz gold; as compared with 24 43 '^s-  copper, 0.30S8 oz.silver and .0503 (,z*  gold in 1906-1907; and 24.30 lbs.  copper, 0.3107 oz. silver and .0513  oz. gold in 1905-1906. During the  summer months a lower grade ore was  shipped, due 10 mining the glory  holes on the surface, which are low  urade and which cannot be mined  during the winter months. Conse  quently the ores will averaue richer in  winter and spring and poorer in summer and fall. The quantity of ore  developed by diamond drill has been  larger than the ore extracted.  During the entire past yeai improvements were made at the smelting pl.mt  among the most important being the  erection of additional ore and c >ke  bins, which increased the oie storage  capacity to about 13,000 tons while  the total storage capacity of coke will  be about 8,000 tons in bins, besides  that stored on the ground. Further  improvements for increased coke storage are contemplated.  The old flue dust chamber having  been found too small and in th*? way  of en'arging the present blast furnaces, a new steel flue dust chamber  immediately back of the furnaces and  on a higher level than the previous  one was  erected,   and the  brick flue  rick, 'ana 'cnUrgsd ouffloi. miy. to  acebmmodatetwo large rotary blowers of  100,000 cubic feet per minute capacity.  All former blast,pipes will Me replaced  by larger ones.  The converter building and converters have a'si to be enlarged, in  order to take care of the proposed  increased quantity of matte. This  ���vill be done by extending the present  steel building 80 leet in length. Three  arge and modern electrically operated  converter ..stands will be installed, re  placing one of the present small stands,  and when completed there will be two  old small stands and three large new  ones. A new 40x40x42 blowing  engine will be installed driven by 500  h. p. electric motor, to take care of  the large converters.. When completed,  the converter plant will have a capacity  to turn out 35 to 40,000,000 lbs. of  copper per annum.  All new construction, with the ex  ception of the ore and coke bins, has  been either of steel or of steel and  brick, thereby greatly lessening the  fire risk. It is estimated that all the  above improvements will be finished  next year, when the benefit from large  and continuous tonnage may be expected.  The plant and equipment have been  kept in a high state of efficiency and all  repairs and minor improvements have  heen charged to current expenses.  In consequence of a great many  changes made at the mines and the  smelter, some machinery together with  the buildings containing it became  ocsolete, and a careful re-appraisement  shows that there should be written off  for depreciation at the mines about  $115,000 and at the smelter about  $45,000. In addition it is estimated  that further changes will amount in a  depreciation to the extent of about  $45,000 al the smelter during the  coming year, and your Board has  thought it wise also to write ��� this  amount off during the business year  ended June 30 1908, making the total  written off for depreciation about  $205,000.  The total tonnage of Granby and  foreign ore amounted to 882,611 dry  tons, against 665,915 tons in the previous year, and there were produced  21,126,926 lbs. of copper against 16,-  403,497 lbs.  The cost per lb. of copper produced,  after deducting the value of gold and  silver, was o 1024c. against .1014 and  .0835c. in ihe two previous years.  Smelting operations were greatly interfered with by the construction work  and frequent vexatious interruptions.  During mid-summer of 1907 the smelter  still suffered greatly from a shortage of  coke. From November 15, 1907 to  January 1, 190S, the entire plant was  shut down. At that time, an adjust  ment of wages, in harmony with those  ruling in neighboring camps, was affected.  PYTH1ANS ENTERTAIN  GRAND CHANCELLOR  At the Local Lodge fort Tuesday Evening.  Tuesday evening, Oct. 13M1 the  flrelhren <f I'hoenix K. o! T. lodge,  No. 28, received an offi.-.inl visit from  11. A ������Brown, of Ri*v. Isiokc, Grand  Chancellor of the lliilish- Coltiiiihi.i  Grand Lodge. ���'. ������..���.���': r.: y.y'% 77?%-  On addiessing the brethren,Mr  Brown said that it nffirdrd him gr<a>  pleasure to visit I'hoenix Indue, he  had been travelling throughout tin  Province, and marvelled at the rapid  (���rowth of Pythiarvs'm; he also remarked on the spirit with which Grand  Forks had got together, after losing  their hall and paraph'ernri'in, not forgetting to make mention of the fact  that the Fernie lodge had met with a  similar misfortune, but were gradually  getting together again. In conclusion  Mr. Brown, congratulated Phoenix  lodge on the efficiency of its membership, and the progress it had made.  Rev. Mr. Lunclie delivered a carefully prepared address on Pythagoras,  the thread of which dealt-with ihe  early teachings of Pythianism, wh;ch  was ihstructive and interesting. He  received a, hearty round of applause  for the able manner in which he treated  his subject. J.. Harhmar and A. J.  Stendal, of Grand Folks',' also gave  short addresses, and among the visitors  were F. W. Maxwell of Washington  and J. Alexander of New York.  An excellent supper was then served  in the.hall, and much credit is due the  nisnaging committee for the manner in  which' the affair was brought to a successful issue, everyone apparently enjoying themselves.  The Grand Chancellor and friends  from Grand Forks lelt Wednesday  morning for Greenwood, where Mr.  Brown addressed the Pythian brothers  of that city.

The routine business of  the association was tiansacted followed  by election of officers for the ensuing  year,   as   follows:   President,   W.   R.  Williams; Vice-President A. B. Hood;  Secretary, \V. X. McDonald; executive  committee���G.    W.   Rumberger,    D.  Oxley, D. Gunn,  Jas. Marshall,   John  Pierce, J. Walsh, Robt. Brown, W. H.  Docksteader,  F. Graham, O.N. Galer,  J. O. Church, W. J. Pierce.  It was decided to open committee  rooms on Monday, Oct. 17th, in the  store now occuppied by Munro &  Libby, Knob Kill avenue. All friends  ofthe Conservative cause welcome.  The-Dominion political campaign in  Phoenix was opened on Thursday  evening, when a meeting was held in  the opera house in the interests of  Duncan Ross, the Liberal candidate,  John Mclnnis, M.P. P., also being a  speaker.  The opera house was well filled,  probably 400 being present, including  a sprinkling of ladijs. P. H.Cosgrove,  president of the local Liberal association, presided over the meeting, and  on the platform with him. besides Mr.  Ross and Mi. Mclnnes, were Robert  Horreli, Phoenix, and Messrs. McDonald, Ridpath and Dill, of Greenwood.  Mr. Ross gave a very clear cut  address, of about an hour and three-  quarters, dealing witirtneis-iiies of the  campaign in which bis constiuents  were interested, and did not shrink  from answering queries propounded by  some of the audience. His explana*  tions, were convincing, at least appeared reasonable to a good proportion  of his hearers.  After introductory remarks the  speaker referred to the campaign being  carried oh by the opposition in which  he said scandal cry was the chief  weapon . used. Tbe government was  charged with giving away large tracts  of land ', to political friends. The  speaker quoted figures to show that  Conservatives were the real offenders,  enumerating many instances of gifts of  fifty thousand square miles by the late  Tory Government when in power.  Only the highest bidder had secured  limits from the present Government  and the records would prove il, and  ihe Borrows' land deals were discussed.  He defended the steamer Artie's, trip;  investigation had proved there was no  squandering of money in equipping it.  As to the deferred elections in Yale-  Cariboo Mr. Ross said the Government  held elections to suit themselves and  not to suit Conservative  friends,'and  p'at formTcfiiruTg^^nuTTkmiinion   campaign.     "I repeat   the  charges," said  Mr. Ross, "and am   prepared to prove  thein.   I have been in the constituency  two months  now and   would like  to  meet Mr. Bowser.    If my charges are  true, then he has   no  right   in  public  life; if the charges, are not true, then I  have   no   right   in   public   life;  if the  charges   are   true,   the  Law    society  shou.u take away Mr.   Bp>sei's gown  for unprofessional conduct."' Mr. Ross  accused Mr. Bowser of being  solicitor  (and drawing up contract) for  a   company organized to  import 50,000 Orientals for the C.P R., and   which lie.  published in   the Vancouver Province  twoldays previous to the last provincial  election, purporting to be a scheme by  the Canadian government for securing  cheap  labor  for  the! G.T.P. railway,  and   which, the  speaker said,. was so  well concocted that even staunch Liberals believed it and voted Conservative.  The Grand Trunk Pacific was dealt  with'al lengthens great possibilities in  developing the Dominion, the shortest  transcontinental; route,'  by a50 miles,  and accused the'Gpj osition of hostility  to the'road      He "also" referred "to   the'  Government's policy of railway competition,   and   exampled   the Boundary.  Better termsand other issues discussed  and   the  speaker concluded   with  an  appeal for the support of the electors.  i   John   Mclnnis,   Socialist M. LA.,  followed Mr. Ross,-speaking for about  an   hour.     He   had  been    invited to  speak for an hour, but said  he   would  not be able to go into the principles of���  Socialism .'in that time.   'He' congralu-'  lated each of the parties in having candidate  in Yale-Cariboo of irreproachable character.      He touched on   several issues, and made a   strong appeal  for support for  Charles  Bunting,' the  Socialist candidate.  The meeting closed with cheers for  Sir Wilfrid Laurier and the King.

General      Superintendent ""Brown'-''  Early in August a disastrous fire  broke out in British Columbia, laying  waste an area estimated to be 70 miles  in lengthy and 5 to to miles in width,  and doing great damage to the properties of the Crow's Nest Pass Coal Com  panjr, from which we receive our: coke  and in which we are large stockholders;  besides, a creat many bridges belonging to the Canadian Pacific and Great  Northern were destroyed, and the  supply ot coke for a period of two or  three weeks was cut off, necessitating  the closing down of one-half of the  furnaces. Since September first the  smelter is again in full operation.  Almost immediately after issuing our  last annual report a most severe panic  broke out, and among other disastrous  consequences the consumption of all  metals decreased very materially and  prices showed a heavy decline. Of the  different metals, copper was among the  heaviest suflVrer, due perhaps, to the  abnormally high prices that ruled  throughout the greater part of 1907.  and which had not been known belnre,  except when the copper mining industry in this country was in its infancy. Prices fell from about 25c. to  close to 12c. and showed very little  recovery during the first six months of  the present year, due to the ureat falling off in the consumptive demand for  home trade. Fortunately, Europe was  a continuous buyer, thereby preventing  large accumulations of stock. Of late,  the demand for home trade has shown  great improvement, and if this con  Unites, as appears to be the case, it may  be confidently hoped that prices will  show a further improvement.  The enormous decline in the price  of copper and the marked influence on  the cost by reason of the difficulties  with which the smelter had to contend,  permitted the declaring of only two  dividends, viz.: one of 30% on September .50, 1907, and one ol 20'/a on  June 30, 19��8*  candidate in Yale-Cariboo,  in the campaign  a   month   ahead   of  Mr. Burrell tbe speaker found it im  possible to get over the constituency,  175,000 miles in extent, by even Nov.  i2th,   and   how   his   oj ponent   could  hope to reach a reasonable portion of  the electorate before Oct.  26th was a  mystery.    Aside from this, however, it  was  impossible  for  officials to reach  the 200 polling places, many of which  were isolated, and post notices in time  10 have the election on Oct. 26th.  The cry of a white Canada by the  Conservatives was ridiculed by Mr.  Ross; the Oriental question had been  an issue during the entire regime ol  the Conservative party. A tax of $50  on the Chinese immigrants by the Con-  seivative government had been increased to $500 since the Liberals  came into power. He denounced  Hon. W. J. Bowser for trickery in  connection with the importation of  Orientals, and read Mr. Bowser's denial to charges made and the challenge  to meet on Greenwood or other public  Although stated that the trip was one of inspection of trackage, the general manager  being on his annual round of inspection  of western lines. The party had just  come from Keremeos, the presenrter ���  minus of the V. V. & E., and when  asked when track-laying would be continued from Keremeos west, Mr.  Brown said it was a question he could  not answer.  When the Pioneer asked for a list  ofthe improvements contemplated at  Phoenix we received a rude jolt in  Mr. Brown stating that" none were  reqiured. This statement, however, ;  he said, referred to trackage facilities, :  in connection with which the party  were here. His attention was drawn  to some of the most important improvements needed at the depot, but  being a genial experienced railroad  man the general superintendent evaded  a definite answer. Although invited  to wait and view the landscape of the  local G. N. headquarters by moonlight, the party took precautions and  left at 5 p. m.  ��� ���-����������������������� ����������^**��"**** ���>  . Oct.   17.  '08     A  BOUNDARY ORE TONNAGE.

The agricultural and fruit-growing  possibilities of the province are to be  exploited as they never have been before.  "The association intends to expend  $5000 in advertising British Columbia  in one American magazine alone. ��� It  started the influx of Americans to the  prairie provinces and will do the same  for British Columbia.

A doctor  can use a word a yard long without him j  or anybody knowing what it means; but  if the editor uses one he has to spell it.  If the doctor goes to see another man's  wife he charges her for the visit; but  if the editor goes he gets a charge of  buckshot.
