This last summer  a new giant furnace, with a capacity of  some 700 tons daily���among the very  largest in Canada���was placed in commission, thus enlarging the old battery  of two small blast furnaces to .some  1200 tons daily. The new furnace has  mechanical feed devices, somewhat  similar to those in use at the Granby  and B. C. Copper Co. smelters, but  the two old furnaces have still been  fed by hand. While copper was bringing 25 cents per' pouna,Mhe margin  was sufficient so that the difference in  cost of feeding was not so pronounced,  but with copper at 15 or 16 cents, the  case is different;'' and" the old hand  feeding will be done away with, and the  electric motor used in the enlarged  plant when finished, a few weeks later.  It is the intention to tear down the  two old blast furnaces and rebuild  them together, making one ��� larger furnace that will exceed the new furnace  by some'two or three feet in length..  This will result in giving the smelter  a capacity of several tons per day more  than the present plant has���and the  ore can be fed at less expense than at  present.  The two old furnaces have already  been blown out and the work of reconstruction commences at once, the plans  having been worked out by Manager  W. C. Thomas and Consulting Engineer M. M. Johnson some time  since. It is expected that a couple of  months will suffice to make the changes  and enlargements needed. I  As a result of the curtailing of ore  shipments by the Dominion Copper  Co.'s mines, most of the men employed  at the Brooklyn andTdahomihes were  laid off Thursday, for the time being,  but the force is kept on at the company's Rawhide mine in this camp, at  the Mountain Rose mine, Summit  camp, and at the Sunset mine, Dead-  wood camp���and these mines will  keep the 700-ton furnace in continuous  operation till the enlarged plant is  ready, when a larger mining force than  before will be required to get out the  increased tonnage needed.  Supt. Chas. Rundberg was asked  how long he expected to find it  necessary to curtail operations at the  Idaho and Brooklyn, and said it depended entirely on the time required  to complete the alterations at the  smelter. Meantime, he may do some  necessary work at the mines referred  to.  Plans have been drawn for the Dominion Copper Co. for a new central  office building and warehouse, to be  erected on the Idaho claim as soon as  possible. The necessary lumber has  been ordered, and work will start by  the carpenter gang when it arrives.  The plans call for a building, 24 feet  by 75 feet, two stories, the warehouse  itself occupying a space 24 x 48 feet.  The building will be specially arranged  for the purpose intended, and it is  hoped to occupy it before winter sets  in.  Mrs. L. L.

COKE WILL BE  MORE PLENTY  Boundary Mining Notes  Granby Gets  Interest  In The Crow,  Jay P.  Graves Is Now on The  Directorate.  COUNCIL RESOLUTES  REGARDING COKE  Thanksgiving Day, October 31.  By proclamation of the governor-  general, Thanksgiving Day throughout  the Dominion has been set for Thursday, October 31. The commercial  travellers endeavored to have the date  set for a Monday, so that they might  arrange to spend the annual festival at  home with less loss of time than in any  other way.  C. P. R. traffic receipts for. the week  ending Sept. 14, were $1,463,000.  For the same week last year they were  $r,371,000.  Those who attended the Fifth  Annual Nelson fruit fair this week, report that it was a most successful  event. Quite a number were present  from the Boundary.  The U Know club was organized  here Thursday with the following  officers: H. M., Harry James; M. 1'.,  J. J. Strutzel; J. L. S., C. L. Thornber;  K. K. K., E. P. Shea. Its purpose  is literary and musical entertainment,  and it is intended to give monthly  dances.  At the meeting of the members and  congregation of St. Andrews' Presbyterian church, held last Sunday evening,  a unanimous call was tendered Rev.  Samuel Lundie to become the settled  pastor of the church, Mr. Lundie having not previously had a regular call,  but having done good worn since his  residence in Phoenix.  Decides to Send Same to the  Government.  Mayor Mathison and Aids. Porter,  Birnie and Carson were present at  Wednesday's semi-monthly meeting of  the city council. A light was ordered  placed at the corner of Banner street  and Dominion avenue and the following accounts were ordered paid:  D. L. Mclntominey $ 10.00  James Bryson      30.80  B. C. Telephone Co.      '2.95  Vancouver Rubber Co    300.00  M. M. Stephens      2S.90  Dr. J. D. MacLean        15-00  Hotel Alexander        5 25  M. Mclntyre    238.04  Hotel Brooklyn        3.15  It now seems assured that there will  be no more coke shortages for British  Columbia smelters that are supplied  by the collieries of the Crow's Nesi  Pass Coal Co. For some time pust  there have been rumors that some one  was securing large interest in this company, and it is now known that the  Granby Co. bought outright a considerable block of the shares ofiliai  concern. F. H. McGuigan, one of die  directors of the company retired, and  Tay P. Graves, general manager of the  Granby Co., was placed on the board.  A week or two ago Mr. Graves  visited Fernie and had a consultaticn  with G. G. S. Lindsay, the manager ol  the coal concern, and as it is pretty  well known that Mr. Graves is a man  who does things and has little time for  posing as a dummy director, an increased output of coke is already beginning to be felt at all smelters-  having contracts with the Crow's Nest  Pass Coal Co. It also goes without  saying that no further coke shipments  will be made to Montana smelters till  British Columbia reduction works are  fully supplied.  As every one in this section is fully  aware, the Granby and other smelters  have had periodical troubles on  account of coke shortages. The  Granby directors stood this state of  affairs as long as they cared to, and  then simply purchased an interest . in  the big coke concern. Competent  judges have stated that the Crow's  Nest Pass Coal Co. owns the mos>t  valuable and extensive coal measure":  in the west. It is now a certainty that  the concern will be conducted hereafter  in a business like manner, and that its  first business will be tp.,dig coal and  make coke, rather than to play the  ��ame of politics or make trouble with  employees. ' Control has not been  secured outright, but it is understood  the Granby Co. has put several hundred thousand dollars in the company,  and the voice of Mr. Graves will be  heard and his influence felt in the conduct of the company���all of which, it  is believed, will be to the benefit of  the metalliferous mining industry of  British Columbia.  PHOENIX MEN ARE IN IT.  In another week the new compressor  should be ready for operation at the  Crescent mine.  Granby smelter has been running  pretty steadily this week with a full  battery of eight furnaces.  Development is being steadily prosecuted at the Skylark mine with a small  force of men under Supt. Rowe. :  It is understood that it. costs from  one to two cents per pound more to  make copper than it did a year ago.  This week the Emma, in Summit  camp, sent 580 tons of ore to the  Granby smelter and 100 tons to the  Trail smelter.  Work and shipments from the B. C.  Copper Co.'s Napoleon mine, near  Boyd's, Wash., have been discontinued  for the present.  This week Snowshoe's shipments  were 2,100 tons of on: to the Trail  smelter 2,560 tons to Greenwood,  making a total of 4,660 tons.  The initial dividend of the company's  stock, distributed September 4th, was  sent out to approximately 1375 stockholders of the British Columbia Copper Co.  In the drop in copper stocks this'  week there have been some great: opportunities to secure bargains in dividend payers in the Boundary and elsewhere.  Secretary Madden, of the Providence  Mining Co., has sent notices, to shareholders of the annual meeting of the  company, to be held in Greenwood  early in October.  This week the diamond drill in use  at the War Eagle mine on the surface,  was transferred to the 100-foot level in  the shaft, where a; number of bore  holes will be drilled.  Contractors have completed the  raise of some 150 feet from the Granby  Curlew tunnel level to the intermediate  level, thus greatly improving the air in  that part of the mine. '  At the Dominion Copper Co.'s smelter this week���the last before, beginning dismantling the two smaller  furnaces for enlargement���a record  treatment was made, being 7,968 tons  for the seven days.  This week the B.C. Copper "Co.  smelter-treated 5,043 tons of Mother  Lode ore, 165 tons of Lone Star, r45  tons of Napoleon, and 3,528 tons of  Snowshoe and custom ore, making  8,SSi tons treated for the week.  Manager McAllister, of the B. C  Copper Co., this week reports a slightly  better outlook for coke, and, whereas  he has been put to it to keep two furnaces in operation, that task is now  easier, but not easy enough for three  furnaces.

Wilb   John  Total $642.09  The following resolutions regarding  the coke shortage was passed and or  dered sent to Hon. Richard McBride,  Sir Wilfrid Laurier, Duncan Ross, M.  P., and John Mclnnis,  M. L. A.:  Whereas, the welfare of the entire  population of the Boundary country  depends upon a steady continuance of  the mining and smelting industries;  and,  Whereas, the aforesaid industries  are frequently hampered, and sometimes brought to a standstill through  the lack of coke for the  smelters; and,  Whereas, such lack of coke is chiefly  due to the fact that the coke produced  from the product of Canadian coal  mines is being continuously exported  to the United States, when badly  needed by the British Columbia smelters; and,  Whereas, the shortage of coke is  occasionally caused through the failure  of the railway companies to supply  sufficient cars for transportation; therefore, be it,  Resolved, by the Municipal Council  of the corporation of the city of Phoenix that the Dominion and Provincial  Governments be memorialized to do  everything that lies in their power to  remedy the state of affairs hereinbefore  described, both in regard to the exportation of coke to the United States,  and the lack of ..J.quate transportation facilities.  According to reports from the coast,  John Houston, publisher of the the  Prince Rupert Empire, has gained a  point on the big railroad company,  which would not sell him a lot or even  allow him to locate his printing plant  at the Pacific coast terminal of that  company, and necessitated so far the  printing of the paper at Vancouver.  But ]ohn is a born fighter, and seemingly has scortd one against his giant  rival, with the aid of two old Phoenix  men.  Jimmy McCague and Bill Hanna,  former residents here, located two  mineral claims for Mr. Houston, and  one for themselves, in the heart of  Prince Rupert, and have had the  claims duly recorded, according to law.  Lawyers in Vancouver have been retained, and John proposes io take  possession of some of the choicest loti  in Prince Rupert and have plenty of  room to publish several papers if he so  desires. Meantime, the railroad company is playing back at John by seizing  his press, which has been on the wharf  at Prince Rupert since July, and the  merry war is oh. Sympathy is undoubtedly with the beligerent editor of the  Empire.  Makes A Baker's Dozen.  As far as can be learned, there  have been altogether thirteen sets of  resolutions passed in Kootenay and  Yale, protesting against the coke shortage at provincial smelters, as follows:  Kaslo, Nelson and Rossland boards of  trade; Rossland and Phoenix city  councils; unions and employees at  Kossland, Trail, Phoenix, Grand  Forks, Boundary Falls, Greenwood  and Summit. They were all along the  same lines, to ask the government to  make the large coke producers and  common carriers give better service  to British Columbia smelters.

Declaring that the Amalgamated in  terests could not hope to control the  price of copper, of which they produce  only 25 per cent', Jay P. Graves of  Spokane, manager of the Granby  mines and smelters, is reported to have  stated as follows, this week in Spokane:  "When a commodity like copper  goes unusually high we always look for  a reaction, and when that reaction  comes it frequently happens that people  get frightened, and the price goes  lower than conditions would seem to  warrant. I do not care to express an  opinion asto the future course of the  market. That is the province of the  manufacturers."  Shown a report that H. H. Rogers  and his Standard 'Oil associates had  attempted to maintain the price of  copper at an artificial level by., cornering   the  metal  and   had  failed,   Mr.  Graves said:    - "Here are-some figures which prove  conclusively that Mr. Rogers would  not attempt to corner copper: Cole-  Ryan properties, 150,000,000. pounds;  Phelps-Dodge & Company, 175,000,  000 pounds; Calumet and Hecla, 100,  000,000 pounds; and Amalgamated  properties, 250,000,000 pounds; Granby company, 20,000,000 pounds.'  "The consumption of copper1 last  year was 10 per cent greater than the  production, and that production this  year probably would have been 10 per  cent less than the amount consumed if  the flurry in financial and business  circles had not occurred. Since this  flurry may restrict consumption, I believe the books may balance this year  and show that. the production will -  about equal the demand."  New ScandlMVlan Officers.  The officers of Phoenix Lodge No.  47,   of the Scandinavian  Fellowship  and Aid Society, who were chosen at  the meeting of organization, held   last  week Friday, were as   follows:    President, Andrew Johnson; vice-president,  Carl Helmer; financial secretary, Emil  Carlson; vice financial   secretary, Eric  Lundemo;  recording  secretary,   John  A.

The ..copper mines whose  costs per pound for production are the  ' heaviest, are, of course, hit the hardest,  "as it'leaves them1'the "smallest' margin  on which to work. Inversely, those  with .lowest,costs���the Boundary pro-  , ducers being well up in this class-  have the largest margin to 'operate ,on  1 with copper at or about 15 cents' per  pound.   '       '   " ,. , T  In this connection, the, opinion. of  v George L. Walker, editor of the iBoston  Commercial, who recently- took a long  trip   through'* the  Important' copper  * regions of the west and northwest, is of  j interest.    Here is what he says in his  1 last issue:  "The claim that there is an accumulation of 200,000,000 to 300,000,000  pounds of copper is absurd.    Itj is  'r' "possible that producers hold a total, of  -100,000,000 to  150,000,000 pounds  of unsold copper which is refined and  ready for consumption. To claim that  ���j- the amount is greater than this, how-  k -xever, is to arguethatconsumption-has  ,- decreased 75% rwithin, .three months,  .    which, of course, is'impossible.'   The  ��� limited amount "of investigation  which  ��� I-have been able to make since my  return from the west convinces me that  all the unmanufactured copper above  ground is held by producers. Under  normal conditions consumers would be  carrying at least 100,000,000 pounds  in their working stocks.  "As soon as money conditions ease  up slightly this copper "will change  ownership. In the meantime there is  no other class of corporations in existence, not excepting the banks, which  is in as good a condition to finance  ioo,oco,ooo to 200,000/000 pounds of  copper as the producers themselves.  Their treasuries are strained.to the  bursting point with profits which have  accumulated during the past three  years of high priced copper.  "The   reversal   of  conditions  has  given the trade a severe "jolt," and it  is natural,  therefore,   that pessimistic  opinions  should be  heard  on  every  side.    It is not impossible, of course,  that 'the worst is yet to come'; but I  feel perfectly satisfied myself that the  copper production during the coming  two or.three years will be absorbed and  consumed at iS cents per pound, provided producers are wise enough to be  united and firm in asking that price.  It must be remembered that electrical  development the world over has only  just begun."���������.'..  Dominion of Canada are concerned,  that British Columbia has continually  been favored with the short end of tho  stick. This is emphasized by the  editor of Canada, a weekly with 70,000  circulation, that is issued in London,  who in Vancouver recently asserted  that, compared with other provinces,  but little is heard of British Columbia  and its remarkable possibilities in the  Mother Country. Preference has been  continually* given in advertising of this  character to provinces further east, and  they are reaping the benefit.  At the same time, Canada's editor  points out that the chances for the  legitimate investment of capital and  increase in population in British Col-  Jumbia are equal to the best. He  {thinks, and rightly, that a systematic  campaign of education along these  lines should be undertaken in England  ���and that it would be productive of  good results, bringing much idle capital  here and thousands of immigrants as  well.  The latter phase is most important  and pressing just now, in view of the  general shortage of rough labor throughout the province, and in view of the  flood of Orientals now landing in Vancouver. British Columbia should be  a white man's country���on this nearly  all classes are agreed. A persistent  campaign along the jight lines in the  old, country should attract the very  best class of settlers, > every one of  whom could undoubtedly better their  condition by coming to British Columbia. * The-' government at Victoria  should'take this matter up, as the-Dominion authorities seem to prefer to  exploit the northwest provinces to the  exclusion of this province. And yet  many are now emigrating from the  northwest to British Columbia all the  time.  Reason for Confidence. ,  Copper is weakening arid copper  mining shares are depressed. In consequence, several small mines have  been shut down and the operations of  the larger companies are curtailed, says  Mining and Scientific Press. It is  stated that the Amalgamated Company  sold a large consignment of, copper at  15 cents, and that producers are timid.  Certainly, buyers have been withholding their orders and as production continues there will be an accumulation of  stock, endangering (he stability of the  market, It is likely that copper will  be weak for a while, but there is every  reason to feel confident as to the  future. Industrial depression will have  to be severe and world-wide before the  market can stay at anything like 15  cents. We expect to see the metal  again at between 20 and 25 cents, that  is, in the course of a year or so, after a  period of unsteadiness. In the meanwhile copper that costs anywhere near  15 cents to produce had better be kept  underground.  Electrical Requirements.  "The coming two or three years are  going to witness remarkable  IN    THE ^  Walker- in* the Boston Commercial  "On my trip through the west I learned  of hundreds of well-defined plans .to  establish-new power plants on rivers  and streams to generate and distribute  electricity. The scope of some of  these undertakings may be judged by  one I heard of the other day. A company proposes to build a plant at Twin  Falls, Idaho, and sell several thousand  electrical horsepower at the mill,  smelter and mines at Ely, Nevada]  about 245 miles distant."  In the Northwest steam power costs  all the way from $65 to $125 per  horsepower per year. Electricity is  being sold there for $35 to $54 per  horsepower already, and all of the  hydro-electric enterprises are earning  tremendous profits. This means that  copper is every day a growing competitor of coal. It is driving coal out  of the mining districts, and it is beginning a successful contest for supremacy on the steam railroads.  These are important things to remember now when stock market prices  have had an extreme decline. The  market is,not going to stay downi  Copper production will continue the  most profitable industry in the country,  1M BKE&KFAST  ; LUNCH  DINNEB  SUPPER  Always Acceptable  Always Delicious  At all Grocers'.

Flfly Years the Standard  CREAM  BAKING  A Cream of Tartar Powdei  Made from Grapes  NO ALUM  r  I  THE OBSERVATORY  Things Tai.kkd ok at  HOMr AMD KLBBWIIKBk  E;3  News comes from Golden that  something is actually being done at  the claims of the British American  Copper Mines and Smelter Co., located  far away from the haunts of men in the'  fastnesses of the Rocky mountains,  miles from civilization or transportation. It will be remembered that this  is the company that resorted to most  questionable advertising last winter and  spring in an endeavor to sell its stock  throughout eastern Canada and the  United States, claiming that theirriear  neighbor was the Granby, and more to  the same effect���when Granby is hundreds of miles distant. I: will be interesting to those, who have been persuaded into buying the stock of the  company, to'learn that something...is  really being done at the claims, as the  repoyt puts it, "by a large: force of  men." Judged: by the lack of reliability of this company's advertising,  they must have a whole man  at * work'  on their prospects, all at once.  ���������  G. G. S.   Lindsay, manager of the  Crow's Nest  Pass  Coal  Co., denies  that-he has been'^making  overtures  through a Japanese contracting  agent  in Vancouver, to take on some of the  ���coolies that are now flooding the coast.  A. S. Tsujimura, the contractor,  must  have been.dreaming when he  asserted  that such was the case.  And, by the way, the same gentleman of Oriental name, has written to  Boundary mine managers���at least,. to  one that we know of���offering to furnish the little brown men for work in  this district. There was no dream  about this, we can give assurance, for  we saw the letter, which was received  by the chairman of the LeRoi-Mc-  Kinney syndicate in Phoenix some  little time ago. It was the real thing,  and evidently meant business. However, we need hardly statethat no encouragement ' was given to the suggestion, and Japanese are as scarce as  ever in the Boundary.  dently there will be some great drilling  done when the event is pulled off, and  those who know them say the Boundary boys will give agood account of  themselves.  A doctor's wife in Edmonton has  given birth, to quadruplet**1, and previously had two sets of twins. Surely  she is entitled to the Roosevelt medal.  It is said that there will be no little  difficulty in finding a suitable editor  for the weekly newspaper that the convicts expect to start in the Walla Wal'a  penitentiary, for the'; reason that so few  editors are ever taken to such a place.  Now if it was a bank, or something of  that kind that was to be launched,  probably little difficulty would be found  in finding an experienced man to direct  its affairs. Of course, some one.will  be found to wield the editorial pen, for  nearly every one who has (ailed ih" his  chosen profession or calling, thinks he  is peculiarly fitted for editorial work.

He will  return home via Seattle and Spokane. -  Mr. Fox, made it a practice for  many years to make periodical visits to  the west in order to keep in touch with  its progress and thus to be in a better  position to advise his eastern clients.  He expressed surprise and amazement  at the wonderful development in; progress west of the great lakes. A noteworthy feature was that each city ��� or  locality possessed unbounded faith in  its own exceptional advantages. The  result was that its citizens imbued with  this spirit, became great factors in  national development.  Mr. Fox spent nearly a fortnight in  the Kootenays, Boundary and Similka-  meen districts. His enthusiasm over  the progress of the mining industry  knows no limitations." He looks for a  marked.revival in the east of interest  in British'Columbia mining invest  ments; and people who lost in the  mania of speculation in mining stocks  years ago, now realize that the losses  were not due to unmeritorious propositions so;.'.much as to -the reckless  methods pursued by" irresponsible promoters. --The:'-eastern -investor,~'wised  up by experience, now realizes that  British Columbia mines have "made  good," as evidenced by the large dividend payers, and are again exhibiting  the greatest interest in British Columbia mining investments.  After a stop at Nelson, Mi. Fox  visited Rossland, which he found to be  in a prosperous condition.  MR. OZIAL ROUNDS.  Resident of Wei land  Finds Relief in Pe-ru-na.

Evelyn Nesbit-Thaw, some months  ago, held the middle of the stage, when  the - disgusting details of the Thaw-  White tragedy were being thrashed out  in court in New York. Last Monday  night, C. L. Cole, of Winnipeg, put on  a moving picture show at our opera  house'with the above; title. There was  a good audience, but in the language  of one who attended, "the entertainment was so rotten that' it was almost  - good."   Little more need be said.  Latterly the" loud pedal has been  turned on regarding the coke shortage  in British Columbia. And what is  more,'it is having its effect, if results  are any criterion.  Uncle Jim Hill's railway is taking  out fifty! cars, of 55 tons each, daily  from the Granby mines these days���a  matter of 2,700 tons each 24 hours;  and handles ten cars of Idaho mine  ore besides.' The Say-Pay-Are is still  falling down on furnishing cars for  Granby shipments.  Last week the Alberta Press Association held its annual meeting at  Cranbroolr, and the editors were so  well treated there that it was decided  to take in the quilldrivers of Eastern  British Columbia to the councils of the  organization, also���something of which  many of the fourth estate in the interior  will be glad to avail themselves. It is  to be called the "A.B.C." hereafter.  It is reported that Foulds Brotheis,  the well known rock drillers, of Greenwood, have determined to enter for the  prizes at the Spokane Inter-State fair,  where $1250 have been hung up for  the best drillers. McL.od, formerly  of the Boundary, but now of Arizona,  is also said to be getting ready to pick  off some of that easy money, and  several teams from the.Coeur d'Alenes  have already entered the  lists.

GUTHRIE & GO.,  Fernie, B. C.  Mr. Fox also found that the Boundary district had undergone a wonderful transformation since his last visit.  All the mines and smelters are continuously increasing their output, the  indications pointing to the fact that  the totalproduction; this year will ex  ceed 1,500,000 tons. He spent several  days at Greenwood and Phoenix. The  "glory hole" at the Granby mines im  pressed him 'very much. ; The mining  methods in vogue on the surface there  are unique. He was informed that in  one instance a scries of big charges  dislodged 50,000 :tons of ore.  The big companies are credited with  having reduced mining and smelting  costs to about $2.28 per ton, exclusive  of freight charges of 25 cents per ton.  From Greenwood Mr. Fox pro^  ceeded to Camp McKiriney, where he  found the old Cariboo mine again in  operation. The lessees comprise a  syndicate of Phoenix people, and the  results so far attained, have proved  very satisfactory. During his stay  there the ten-stamp mill turned out the  first gold brick. This syndicate is  negotiating for the acquisition of an  adjoining group, the Sailor Consolidated, which is equipped with a ten-  stamp mill and a five-drill compressor  plant. The mine has been closed  down for several years. The mam  shaft has attained a depth of one hundred and three feet. A.vein six feet  wide has been drifted on for thirty  feet. It gives values from $3 to $ra  per ton. In this vein there is a pay  streak 30 inches wide, and its values  range from $17 to $31 per ton.  Mr. Fox then went west as far as  Fairview, and enjoyed a one-hundred-  and-forty-mile drive through the most  beautiful part of the Similkameen.  : Mr. OalalRonncU, Wolland, Ont., a  retlrad lumberman and a resident of  Wc-llmndfor half a century, wrlton:  "Por fifteen years prior to 1900 I  was * sufferer from hay asthma and  chronic diarrhea.
