S.  Norcross, Jun.,  general superintendent of the B. C. Copper company,  and C. M. Campbell assistant-supt,  of the Granby mine, Kenneth Ca'mp-  bell, representing the company now  manufacturing the  new mining explosive, "Steelite," gave a practical  demonstration   of' its   efficiency  at  the    Mother   Lode,    Rawhide   and  Granby mines this week.   It was also given   a  thorough   working test  by Ola JLofstad of the Argo Tunnel  company at Greenwood, where owing to  the extreme  depth  of the  workings, and consequent   lack  of  ventilation, much valuable time has  been lost owing to the necessity of  having to await the clearing away of  the  deadly    dynamite   fumes  after  blasting,     before   work   could    be  resumed.      The results at the Argo  as in addition to its rock-breaking  properties the entire absence of  fumes was such that work could  have been resumed almost immediately. True there was some smoke,  but if anything there was less than  is usually the.case when dynamite  is employed.  At the Mother Lode mine, seven  holes in exceptionally hard rock  were charged, the new powder  again giving a fine account of its  power under ordinary working conditions. A further trial of its capabilities in smashing boulders proved  another triumph for the inventor,  the masses of mineral rock being al  converted into incredibly small  pieces. On one occasion a huge  piece of rock was selected by Mr.  Norcross, and a charge less in  weight than is ordinarily used, was  exploded and the mass-brokenl.itp.. ,-  ' - -A .similar record followed the demonstration' at the Granby '.'mine,  where experiments were conducted  in the presence ofthe mine foreman,  John Swanson, and the assist.-foreman' John McLaughlin." Here two  holes, measuring 16 feet each, were  lar  success as   that  at   the Mother  Lode   followed   its  use- as a ''bulldozer."    At  the Rawhide   mine on  Thursday,   a  quantity  of the  new  explosive was used in two holes, 10  and 15 feet respectively, the ground  breaking clean  to  the bottom, and  there again as a "bulldozer" it sustained the claim of its manufacturers  as a  most  effective mining  agent.  A test for  fumes   was  made by the  mine  foreman,   John   Finlay,   who  experienced   not  the  slightest  discomfort   when    he   visited   a spot  immediately / after    a   particularly  effective  shot.       Tests were   also  made   by  striking   the  stuff with a  hammer, shooting holes in it with a  pistol  and  by  burning  it.     It has  also the .advantage over dynamite  of .not being susceptible to frost and  contains no nitro-glycerine.   At present  it is . being  manufactured  by  B. C. Mining  were a surprise to the management,   hand,   until   the   new factory- now  under  construction   at   Mill   creek,  opposite New Denver, is completed.  Brick Plant at Hidden Creek  Machinery for the Granby Hidden  Creek mine has been delivered in  time with the exception of the water  wheels equipment which we understand has been somewhat delayed.  At present there is ��4 very large consignment of smelter and power  machinery awaiting shipment at  Seattle, Wash.  The railroad is practically finished  and now operated by steam. Four  locomotives and nine flat cars are  the equipment used. The brick  plant is in operation with several  hundred thousands of bricks ready  for burning; the quality of the brick  seems to be excellent.  It is officially stated that the  original, estimates will not "be ex-  ���cfetro^r"��^xpt-tii-F:casc *of��s'ihe>*'"p��6i-  limxnary-work of clearing and excavating, which developed some  difficulties not fully foreseen. The  outlook i.s highly.gratifying.  All the ground in which there is a  possibility of gold being found at  the scene ofthe new Shusanna strike  have been : raked out, aud now the  overflow- is being carried .to the  Canadian side where claims on  Horsefelt and Pan creeks have been  recorded.  Conditions look cheerful around  the Ottawa mine. The Consolidated  Mining & Smelting company, has  eighteen men employed doing work  preliminary to substantial development. Considerable rich ore is being found in the dumps and old  workings. Although no confirmation is at hand, it is reported that a  five foot vein has been struck.  The big bore of the Portland  Canal Tunnels, Limited, to tap the  Glacier creek vein series at depth  was in a distance of 1,801 feet when  measured up on the 21st inst. ' Itvis  Healthy Copper Market  The  continued  stoppage of shipments  from   the   Lake   region   has  strongly influenced   the price of the  r?d metal  on   the  London  market,  where   considerable   business   was  transacted at 70 pounds sterling per  ton    during     the   latter    days   of  August.      This   has   caused   some  eagerness on the  part of consumers  who were  out  of stocks, or nearly  so, to  secure fresh  supplies at the  lowest price obtainable.. These buyers have   accordingly come into the  market and buying has consequently  been   on   a larger  scale.     The  stocks    of   copper   visible   in    the  United Kingdom continue to shrink  in  size,   and   with   the  present demand ou home and  export account,  and   the   wilholding    for  the   time  being of  the  lakeside contribution,  the stocks  of the  metal  in Europe  must,   it   would   seem,   continue to  go down.  The Boston  Commercial  says, in  part, that Copper continues to show  now  in   approximately   1,850  feet  Mining circles throughout the north   increasing strength and an advance-  are  following   with intense interest  ing tendency.    Lake  is   16^ cents  and electrolytic is 16^ to i6$4 cts.  per pound. Domestic and foreign  consumers are paying the same  prices, and the demand abroad  seems even stronger than it is here.  The export movement of the past  month was very heavy and' is likely  to continue. Advices from all important manufacturing centres state  that the copper and brass trades are  more active than ever and record  tonnages of copper are going into  consumption all over the world.  During August the visible~supply  of copper at all foreign points de  creased .3,543,680    pounds  the work being carried out and it  will be but a short period now before  the tunnel encounters the vein  series.  Another mining property within  two miles of Hope is now being  developed. The Murphy mine a  mile ^bove Hope Station on the  north of the Fraser, was located  and developed in the early '60's. It  is No. 4 among the crown granted  mineral claims of the province and  its dimensions are 200 and 600 feet.  Grouped with it now are the Hope,  Extension,    Gold   Coin   and   Silver  Phoenix Man Electrocuted  A telegram from Dan. Matheson,  superintendent of the Siver King  mine at Nelson, was' received by  Jasi Marshall, ofthe Brooklyn hotel,  on Saturday, informing him of the  death, that morning, by misadventure, of Jeff McEachern, a familiar  figure among the miners of this  camp. According to an account by  eye-witnesses, McEachern was amusing himself trying, to dislodge a  squirrel that had climbed, one of the  poles sustaining the high-tension  power- lines. His companions repeatedly warned him of the danger  he was running, but in spite of all  advice and remonstrance, he procured an eighteen-feet steel rod and  attempted to reach the animal, with  the awful result that the bar came  into contact with the wire and diverted a current of 20,000 volts  into his body. Immediate steps  were taken by those near him to restore animation, and on the arrival  of medical aid in the person of Dr.  Hartin, that gentleman expressed  the opinion that death had been in-  staneous. The deceased miner,  who was about 37 years of age, had  spent many years in the Boundary,  coming to British Columbia "about  sixteen years ago from Websters  Corners, Prince Edward Island,  where he held a position as teacher  in one of the schools there. The  funeral took place at Nelson on  Tuesday.  Death of Gladys Pope at Merritt  The friends of Mr.   and  Mrs. R.  E. Pope, formerly of Phoenix, will  learn with   considerable  sorrow  of  the death   at  Merritt,   on Tuesday  morning,  of their youngest daughter, Gladys.     TheJittle girl was attacked a couple of weeks ago with  a severe  internal  inflamatory  complaint, which in  spite of every care  and skilful attention defied all efforts  to control.      The funeral took place  on Thursday  at   Merritt.    The deceased was quite a' daughter of Empire, having been born  at Pretoria,  South   Africa,    about   seven  years  ago, and   previous  to   the  family's  removal-to   Merritt in   the  Nicola,  she was among the most promising  pupils in   the  lower division ofthe  Phoenix   public  school.      The   sad  affair .threw   quite   a  gloom  over  local   Pythian   circles,    with   whom  both parents were closely identified.  At  the  general   meeting   of the  Phoenix Lodge, Knights of Pythias,  on Tuesday,   a   resolution   of sympathy with the family in their affliction was carried, and  ordered to be  wired immediately.    The sisters of  the Pythian  temple,  of which Mrs.  Pope is a past presiding officer, forwarded a beautiful wreath.  The Granby Consolidated Mining Smelting & Power Co.  Limited.

The property has been under, development for the past three years,  and had depended on shipping facilities for connections with the Great  Northern Railway, Which has run a  spur of fifteen miles in length from  Princeton to the mine. The property  includes practically all the known  coal in the Tulameen basin, which  has an area, according to Charles  Camsell of the Geological Survey,  of 3700 acres, of which 3254 acres  carry coal. Mr. Camsell estimated  the thickness of coal at 20 feet included in several seams, and gave  an estimated amount of 65,000,000  tons that could be extracted by  mining.  That platinum as well as gold exists in the bottom of the Lardo river  valley, is the belief of C. H. Buscb-  ner, of Philadelphia, Pa., owner of  the gold dredge which has been  working successfully all summer at  Goldhill, a point on the Lardo river  a few miles .this side of Poplar. In  proof of his assertion, Mr. Buschuer,  who was in Kaslo a few days ago,  en route east to purchase mote  machinery, was exhibiting a small  glass phial containing a brown  colored dust, with bright specks,  liberally sprinkled through it, said  dust said to contain platinum by  some who had previous knowledge  of the appearance of that metal.  Mr. Buschner has had no assays  made yet but claims that he has  satisfied himself by a chemical test  that the strange looking material in  the little bottle carries platinum  values.���Kootenain.  further reduction -of 15,000,000 . to  20,000,000 pounds in the American  surplus.

NORTHRUP FOWLER, Secy.  e  Death of an Early Coast Pioneer  Mrs. Chas. Campbell left hurriedly on Monday morning for the  home of her parents, at Vancouver,  in response to a wire announcing  the serious illness of her lather,  Jas. McGeer. Mrs. Campbell, however, was unable to reach her destination in time to see her father before he died, the sad event taking  place on the morning of the day she  left here. Mr. MeGeer, although  only 58 years of age at the time of  his death, was among the earliest  pioneers of Vancouver, and had  been associated with that city and  district for about thirty years. He  was a native of Dublin, Ireland,  and a keen student of political  affairs. He is survived by the  widow and a numerous family of  sons and daughters.

The opportunist who flings  his hands to heaven, and calls upon  the people of Canada to bear witness  that he is the Prince of Conciliation,  went  down   to- St.   Hyacinthe   the  other week   and  appealed  for support  to' the   French   Canadians   of  Quebec   because,   forsooth,   he was  one of the   same  race   and creed as  they were.  It is easier for a leopard  to  change ifs  spots,   or   for   Hon.  Frank Oliver to  sing the National  Anthem,   than   for   Laurier   to   cut  away from  this  miserable  business  of appeals   to race   and creed.    On  the  slightest opportunity  he  casts  aside his   mask of conciliation, and  stands   reveals  as the  demagogue.  "Anything  to beat  Borden," is his  slogan, and therefore he calls upon  his compatriots   tb vote   on  racial  lines.  When   Laurier     by    his   servile  majority in  the  senate���a majority  which he created���prevented Canada  from   taking  her  share   in, the  naval burdens  of this Empire, and  from   playing.  a   man's   part,    he  proved  that  his  much-vaunted   affection   for   Britain   and   British institutions,    was , a   mere  pretence.  By his action he alienated the sympathy of  the vast  majority of loyal  Canadians,  who believe we should  do  something  more   to   show  our  appreciation   of   the   privileges   .of  Empire citizenship, than by making  speeches about it.    And on the very  first occasion, Laurier tells the people of his  native province that they  should support him���not because of  any- progressive   policy he   has   to  offer,   but   merely   because ,he happens to be one of themselves.  Could  anything   be  more paltry or petty?  It is   the same  old   game, and like  all  others  of its kind will prove a  losing  one in the end.    The intelligent  electorate  of   this   Dominion  will   not  permit   themselves   to   be  led away by the frantic appeals of a  vainglorious and defeated politician.  portance  was  passed on Friday of  last week by   the New Westminster  Presbytery, representing the Presbyterians'of Vancouver and the lower  mainland.       Like   ajl   other   public  bodies who have registered protests  against the  Asiatic influx into  this  cohntry,    they  view  the   situation  with considerable alarm, and unlike  the rest  have spoiled  their  resolution by the suggestion that whereas  as   at    present  the    proportion   of  male Orientals  in  British Columbia  i.s as   five to   one of the white, male  population, the   invasion   from Asia  should be stopped until-the proportion    had   reached  something   like  one male Asiatic to  thirty whites of  the same sex.      But why should we  allow them in at all, if, as the Presbyterians have declared, their moral  and   social   standing  is   not   of the  best, for whether their numbers are  as one in  five or one in thirty they  will   continue   to   herd * together   in  colonies, the smell of which at meal  times would   drive   away   a hungry  pariah dog.     But, perhaps the most  astounding part of the resolution   is  the   recommendation  that  the government  raise  the bars   and "allow  the wives of those   Hindus that are  already"    here    to   come    in.      No  mention   is   made   of the children,  but this is  no doubt an inadvertent  omission, and   was   also the failure  of the  presbytery to state/which of  he  wives in   the  case  of a polyga -  mous  marriage were  to be allowed  to enter.    Both would   be perfectly  legitimate as   the  laws  in India recognize  to  the  fullest  extent   the  practice of polygamy. ���'  pen  tingle  .**��-  Hose  bearing- the "%*  Penman trademark snuggle  "^"\\  like a second skin to every curve   ��  of foot and limb: They,do  not    S.  rip, or tear, because there is not a *  seam  about   them.

Automatic Rifle Barred  According  to a- recent statement  by the  acting-premier, W. Bowser,  the   automatic  rifle  is   among the  firearms  forbidden   by   law   to be  used in this  province.     In  replying  to a deputation that had called upon him  urging a change  in the existing law regarding  the use of the  repeating shotgun,   Mr.   Bowser in  promising to give the matter his attention,   stated   that   the  law  had  -been designed to prohihit  the indiscriminate    slaughter   of  birds   and  -animals, and  while the, members of  established   gun  clubs who  owned  pump-guns   might not misuse   their  weapons,   hunters  for   the  market  might,   and    in   administering   the  law they could show  no discrimination.     The   Act had   barred  the.use  of the   automatic   rifle, and they felt  that   the   repeating   shotgun    came  under the same heading.

The Delicacy ofthe Summer.Season���  FAMOUS CURLEW ICE CREAM-TRY ONE  KNOB HILL AVENUE  Fine "Market" For Our Wheat  To the reciprocity priests, who  were advocating a market in the  United States for Canadian wheat,  the latest Washington reports must  make interesting reading. The  American government report shows  that a record-breaking winter crop  has been safely harvested in the  United States. The yield is 511,-  000,000 bushels or 18.000,000  bushels more than the big yield of  1906. There is also a heavy yield  of spring wheat so that the total  U.S. wheat crop is placed at 744,-  000,000 bushels. This means the  republic will have- a surplus of at  least 150,000,000 bushels for export.  A fine chance the Canadian farmer would have in that-market  with this surplus, and no wonder  need be expressed that the Winnipeg wheat quotations are 15 cents  higher than the prices in Minneapolis.  It is also no wonder that the  Liberal journals have little to say  these days about free trade in wheat  with our American cousins. In addition, as was pointed out by Con  servatives at the time'the agreement!  was being discussed, the Democrats are giving Canada all the advantages of reciprocity without the  necessity of this country throwing  open its markets to their surplus  products. The Democratic tariff,  as it now stands, provides that  wheat may be placed on the free list.  Predicts Much Privation  Napier Denison, of the Meteorological office, returned recently to  Vancouver from a tour of the upper  country stations, says a,coast paper.  At Dawson he met Andy Taylor,  one of the discoverers of the rich  gold staike at Shushanna, who "was  returning with supplies to enable  his party to develop their property.  Large sums of money are already  being offered for the neighboring  claims, but the general opinion of  old miners is that far too great a  number from the outside are rushing  in, and that the season is already  closing, which means great suffering and possible starvation to the  inexperienced.  If those eminent geologists are  looking for a field of inquiry, they  might examine the rocky road over  which the Liberal party of British  Columbia are now travelling.  If you invented a machine that  could think, and you were the only  man who- knew anything about it,  every man you showed it to would  tell you how to improve on it.  d. l.

Callbreath, secretaty of the  American Mining congress, believes  that.unless the mining industry finds  a method of treating low-grade ores  at a profit, the United States has  reached the maximum of its gold  production. He further says that  an increase in the production of  gold is absolutely necessary for any  expansion of business, and without  this the United States will have to  stand still and mark time.  At the sixteenth annual conven-  lion of the American Mining Congress, to be held in Philadelphia on  October 20th to 25th, men of  national reputation will discuss the  gold question as one. of serious  moment. It is likely that the con  gress will request the United States  government to take up at once  through the national bureau of  mines, the question of the profitable  treatment of low-grade gold ores.  Mr. Callbreath says: "The most  formidable-economic problem confronting the country is the inadequate metallic support for the increasing credit necessary to continued business expansion. -,The  annual world production of gold,  less than $500,000,000, is theoretically estimated to furnish a proper  basis for a credit expansion of  $2,500,000,000, while the annual  expansion of the world's" credit  approximates $5,000,000,000 annually. The United States produces  approximately one-fifth of the  world's gold supply, but her proportion of business expansion and accompanying credit is much greater."

These, in addition lo such other attractions as horse-racing, rock-diill-  ing and apple-packing contests, district displays, etc., will, to#use a  western expression, be a hard combination to beat.
