JJtaCTitt ^xoropaqti $c m  of development  Snowshoe since  The machinery  One of the great mining and smelting enterprises of British Columbia is  the Consolidated Mining and Smelling  Co. of Canada, Ltd., owning and operating the extensive Trail smelter and  refining works; the Center-Star-War  Eagle group of gold-copper mines at  Rossland; the rich St. Eugene lead-  silver mine at Moyie, some mines in  the Slocan, and the Snowshoe, War  Eagle and other groups in Phoenix  camp in the Boundary.  Up to a little over a year ago this  company had no interests whatever in  the Boundary, confining its enterprise  entirely to the. Kootenays, where it has  been signally successful���which is best  shown by the fact that it is paying  regularly ten per cent dividends on a  capital of $5,500,000, of which less  than $5,000,000 has been issued.  In the summer  of   1906, however,  control was obtained of the  Snowshoe  group in this camp, and Charles Biesel  was placed in charge as superintendent.  The  greatest   activity   was   at   once  apparent  at   the   Snowshoe, and   the  mine was opened up in full blast, with  R. A. Fraser as foreman.    During the  balance of the year 1906 the company  shipped some 8.400   tons   of ore, and  this year thus far about 100,000 tons of  ore have been sent out from the Snow-  shoe to the company's   Trail   smelter  and to the smelter of the B. C. Copper  Co.   at   Greenwood.      Regular   shipments are now maintained at the rate  of  about   600  tons  daily, which rate  would   be   increased   if the   smelters  could handle the ore.  No   little  amount  has been done at the  Mr. Biesel took hold,  plant was about  doubled in   capacity,  and   electricity   was   substituted    for  steam.    A trolley system was put in at  the tunnel level, thereby  reducing the  cost of handling the ore.    A complete  water system   was   installed.    On   the  surface extensive stripping   was  done,  showing up much larger bodies of good  copper ore, amounting to many thousands of tons, and the entire programme  of development  has  been   carried forward with an idea of permanency and  economy,   with    many   thousands   of  dollars spent  in  betterment of many  kinds.  Tbe New Acquisitions.  But the aggressive policy of the  company did not stop with the Snow-  shoe. This summer the War Eagle  group of some dozen claims, adjoining  the Granby group on the south, was  purchased from the Phoenix Amalgamated Copper Mines, Ltd.,and in addition  some twenty or thirty other properties  were taken under option and bond.  Thus the company showed that it was  here to stay and proposed to secure  some of the good things of Phoenix  camp while they could be had at anything like reasonable prices.  At the War Eagle, on purchasing, a  force of men was immediately set at  work under Phil James, numbering  from 30 to 50, as occasion required.  Extensive surface prospecting was  undertaken, the 100-foot shaft was tin-  watered, and an  old   shaft deepened.  A diamond drill was set to work,  and if reports can be credited, larger  and better copper ore bodies have  been disclosed by the operations. The  War Eagle machinery plant has been  greatly enlarged and will be operated  by electricity, and a commodious bunk-  house was built there.  Altogether the '.-.company employs  from t75 to 200. men in this camp,  making a wage payroll alone of from  $17,600 to $20,000 per month.  Showing the importance of the  Consolidated company, 'it' has been  published that, at its various mines and  reduction works, there are employed  approximately i,spo;nien, the annual  expenditure for wages being about  $1,750,000. The operation of the  properties entails an expenditure each  year of some $3,500*600, exclusive of  sums spent in purchase of ores. '1 'he  annual tax bill of the company at full  capacity is approximately $5 7,000.  COMING AND GOING  R.L. BORDEN AT  GRAND FORKS  Will Speak There on  Monday.

Monday  night he speaks in Grand Forks, the  following night in Cranbrook and then  at Calgary on his way east. At all of  the meetings the electors have turned  out in great numbers to hear the distinguished gentleman expound the political issues of the, day from the Conservative standpoint, and he has been  the recipient of many favorable  enconiums.  On this tour Mr. Borden was able  to make but one stop in the Boundary,  and Grand Forks was chosen. With  him will be the Hon.

The I dominion Copper Co. has been  asking for bids for hauling ore from  the Athelstan mine to Hartford Junction, a distance of a mile or two.  Two or three cars of high grade ore  are about ready for shipment at the  Riverside mine, which is being worked  by Sater and Johns, under a $15,000  bond.  Last Sunday, Supt. Coleman, of the  C. P. R., accommodated the B. C.  Copper Co. by running a special coke  train from Robson to Greenwood, to  keep the battery of furnaces in opeia-  tion at the company's smelter.  Gianby's annual meeting of shareholders will be held next Tuesday at  the company's New York office. The  company's eighth dividend is payable  Monday, amounting to $3 per share or  $405,000 for the 135,000 issued  shares.

Turner, of North Dakota, who  are interested in the Moreen, one of  the promising properties of Deadwood  camp, that is electrically equipped,  were visitors in the Boundary this  week, inspecting the property.  Last week's ore output for the  Granby Consolidated was the greatest  in the history of the company, being  over 23,000 tons. In one day over  4,000 tons were shipped from the company's mines, and it was no difficult  matter, either. The week's total of  over 41,000 tons was also a new  record. .,  DISTRICT MINES  CONTINUE BUSY  Production  Still Continues Heavy*  Price of Copper Is Around J 5c.  "A Per Pound.

'  Thomas Russell arrived in camp  Thursday night, after having spent the  summer prospecting in the Sturgeon  lake country, Ontario, where he and  his partners, Phil McDonald of Greenwood, M. H. Kane of Phoenix, and |  John Frost, have been since last May  or June.  Mr. Russell brings large samples of  hematite iron, and states that he and  associates have locnted 21 claims, or  some S40 acres, of the mineral, tests  having proved it to be a most desirable  commercial iron, being free from  sulpur. An offer of some $250,000  has already been made the syndicate  for the property, but it is considered  worth much more than this sum.  The iron claims are situated in the  Sturgeon lake district of Ontario, per  haps 200 miles norlh of Port Arthur,  but only ten or twelve miles from  actual construction of the new Grand  Trunk Pacific railway, thus giving excellent transportation facilities. The  ledges are gigantic, running from 75  feet to 400 feet in width. Mr. Russet's partners are expected to be back  in the Boundary shortly.  As far as can be learned, there is no  indication of an intention of rerinusly  curtailing the production of copper ore  at any of the large mines of the Boundary or at the smelters in this section,  other than the blowing out of the two  small furnaces at Boundary Falls, to  admit of enlargements to tho reduction  works. While produclion has been  considerably curtailed at some of the  great copper producing plants in the  United States, some of them cutting it  squarely in half, as yet nothing of the  kind is anticipated in the Boundary,  though copper has gotten down to  around 15 cents per pound.  Within a year, however, the cost of  producing copper has increased, considerably, directly due to the increase  in the price of coke and other commodities and to the increased wages  paid everywhere. This has been estimated to mean an increase of from one  cent to two cents per pound all told.  Companies that have, been making  copper for nine cents per pound, now  find the cost nearer eleven cents, and  those whose cost was ten cents now  find it close to twelve cents. And in  order to secure a plentiful coke supply,  the cost may be still further slightly increased  As to the future of the price of copper, the opinion seems to be that it  will gradually but slowly go up again,  but very. slowly���providing the low  point has already been reached, which  many believe. There is some money  in it for the Boundary concerns with  copper at 15 cents per pound, but it is  hoped that a somewhat better price  will soon be realized, when the industry would be in splendid shape,  especially.- -if,.....1after/....ii.he.,'" skyrocket  market of the la*st year, it could be  maintained at say rS cents, so that  producers and consumers alike' could  know what to base their plans on for  the future.  Boundary Man Drowned.  A dispatch from Cobalt dated  Sep  tember 23, reads as follows:  "Seyward L. Graham, a foreman in  the Nipissing mine, was drowned Saturday night in Cobalt. Graham and  a companion had crossed the lake to  the town for a doctor to attend two  men who had been overcome by gas.  The boat was upset and Graham's companion succeeded in gaining the shore.  Graham was unmarried and about 40  years of age. He ' came here from  British Columbia with Manager Drum-  mond."  Mr. Graham was well known in the  Boundary, having been in charge of  the Oro Denoro mine for a long time  under Smith Curtis, and later being for  some, eight months foreman at the Dominion Copper Co.'s Sunset mine,  Deadwood camp. When Mr. Drum-  mond left the Dominion Copper Co.  to take charge of the Nipissing mine,  Mr. Graham went with him. He was  unmarried and about 40 years of age,  and had many friends in the Boundary,  his relatives living near Toronto���one  reason why he went east.

The government's best supporters from  this province insist on something being  done, and Sir Wilfrid, unfortunately,  finds himself in a somewhat tight  position. If he takes action that will  satisfy in British Columbia and excludes the Japs, it will not suit in London nor,in Tokio���and evidently Sir  Wilfrid thinks more of what is said in  those places than in the province most  directly affected.

Now, if'the  honorable gentleman will keep up trie  good work and not try to conduct the  department like a pawnbroker's skin-:  nery, as his predecessors have done, it.  will be a step in the right direction.  What we want is not ���_ a surplus like  those 7 shown recently,7 but better  service all over the Dominion.  PROVINCIAL.  Kaslo's big fruit fair this week was a  big success.  Many saw mills in the Crow's Nest  section are closing down for lack of  orders.  Nelson has been having a shake-up  in the police department, the chief and  other officers resigning.  The Hindus who arrived at Vancouver recently on the Monteagle had  $30,000 in gold among the party.  Angus McGillivray and A. Erickson  of Sandon won the drilling contest at  Nelson, drilling 40>�� inches. Faulds  and Manuelson came second with 37  and 58 inches.  An edition of 128 pages, called  "The Land of Opportunity" number,  was issued by the Vancouver Province  last Saturday. It is packed with facts  about British Columbia.  Officials of the passenger department  of the C. P. R. are now seriously considering the establishment of a local  daily train service between Vancouver  and Revelstoke during the winter.  W. L. Mackenzie King, deputy  minister of labor, has confirmed the  appointment of S. S. Taylor of Nelson  and J. A. Harvey of Cranbrook as  members of the conciliation board to  settle the differences between the members of the Moyie miners' union and  the Consolidated company.  "Uncle Tom's Cabin."  The production here a few nights  since of the drama of "Uncle Tom's  Cabin," recalls memories of the famous  book of the same name on which the  play is founded. The effect of the  publication of "Uncle Tom's Cabin"  on slavery, was greater, perhaps, then  that of any novel ever written by a  woman. In 1851, Harriet Beecher  Stowe commenced in the National  Era, an anti-slavery paper in Washington, a serial tale entitled "Uncle Tom's  Cabin." When the story was completed in 1852, it was published in  book form in Boston, and its popularity was so great that it sold to the  extent of 400,000 copies. The book  was reprinted in England and 500,000  copies were sold there, and it was  rapidly translated and printed in all  European and some Asiatic countries,  and, besides this it was extensively  dramatized and illustrated. The book  did more than any other literary agency  to arouse the public conscience in  America and elsewhere against slavery  and Ihe great wrongs inflicfd on the  individual under it.  Ten years after the final chapters of  the book had been'given to the public,  Abraham Lincoln, president of the  United States, issued his famous emancipation proclamation, which gave freedom to millions of slaves. Thus the  seeds of freedom planted by Harriet  Beecher Stowe and others, bore the  good fruit of freedom. In the ripening  ol that fruit, however, there was a four  years' war, in which thousands of lives  were lost, and billions of money spent.  The price paid was a great one, but no  one on this continent regrets it, for the  war of the rebellion decided forever  that there should be no more slavery  on this continent.

But if  some of them do not load up with  copper at the present low price, there  may be some sorry manufacturers in a  short time.  New Metal Fdaod.  A new and rare metal has been  found at several mines in the Cobalt  belt known as stromeyerite, an amalgam  of sulphides of silver and copper. One  mine where it has been found is the  Cochrane, adjoining the Temiskaming.  The vein is said to be 14 inches wide.  The pure metal has previously been  found in South America, Siberia, and  Bohemia. Cobalt's find is.the first in  North America. , The pure metal  contains 53 per cent of silver and will  run over 15,000 ounces to the ton.  It is a black, heavy metal.

No wonder John D. Rockefeller  is reputed to. be the richest man in the  -world. This beats even the newspaper business, where it   is  an   open  'secret that the profits are so enormous.  It is pleasant lo note that the Nelson  Fruit Fair was conceded by all to  have been the best yet���the universal  opinion of the many who attended  from the Boundary and elsewhere.  Nelson seems to be doing itself proud  'in the fair business and to be making  it more of an institution each year.  The investigation of the causes of  the escape of the notorious train bandit, Bill Miner, from ihe New West-  7minster penitentiary, is still going on.  A?few officials willlose their heads and  that will end it, probably, just as they  do such things in the United States.  Miner evidently knew the value of  some ready cash.  John Houston is certainly proving  himself to be a thorn to the Grand  Trunk Pacific at Prince Rupert. When  the officials declined to permit him to  land his printing plant at their Pacific  terminus, Mr. Houston found mineral  in place on the townsite, located some  claims in legal fashion, recorded them  properly, and is now proceeding lo  fight it out with the railway monopoly.  Nine out of every ten men in British  Columbia wish Mr. Houston the best  of success with his great antagonist,  and that the officials of the new transcontinental railway will learn early in  the game that they are not the entire  thing in British Columbia, whatever  they may have been or are yet at  Ottawa. They've had some lessons  already at Victoria, but apparently  need a few more.  It's almost time for either the Vancouver World or the Victoria Times to  spring another story���later to be proved  absolutely false���about Premier McBride; as one has not cropped up in  the last eighteen minutes. Such a  policy may be considered good politics;  but it is mighty poor newspaper practice, to say ihe least.

Doubtless it would have been better  in the long run if the price  of copper  had not gone above   18  cents.    The  market has simply returned to a more  normal   and   more  healthy position.  The consumption  of   copper is' not  going to cease, even   though   the atti  tude and actions of the manufacturers  for   several  months  have lent  some  color to the belief.    The trouble has  been uncertainty and lacic of confidence; but when knowledge as to the  real statistical position is available���  absence of which is one of the greatest  unsettling factors���cdnfidence will be  restored and business will be resumed  on normal lines We believe that this  will hot be delayed much longer.  When this consummation is reached  it is to be hoped that the market will  no longer have the skyrocket features  that have characterized it during the  last two years. It is to be hoped,  moreover, that investors in copper  shares will make up their minds to disregard the mischievous practice of  various public advisers of computing  earnings per share and percentage on  going market price on the basis of  temporary high c;uotations for the  metal, which is a constant temptation  to the unwary and inexperienced. The  shares of good copper mining companies are among the safest and most  profitable forms of investment, but  purchases should be made on the basis  of the probable price for the metal  over a series of years, and due allowance should be made for the gradual  exhaustion of even the biggest mines.  ���Engineering and Mining Journal.

The above concents consume ihe  bulk of the American copper production. The Western Electric Co. and  the Westinghouse companies, large  consumers of wire and casting copper,  are not included as they seldom buy  their copper direct. They buy it in  the manufactured form and a good  portion of their requirements, especially  that of the Western Electric Co. is'represented in the consumption of the  American Brass Co.  The Brass Co. controls seven large  plants.

The canon whispered to him to  dispense with the salute and simply  repeat���after him.

In Fiscal Year, Due to Fuel  Shortage.  A recent Boston report is as fo'lows:  M. M. Johnson, consulting engineer  of the Dominion Copper Co., who has  just arrived in the east from the British  Columbian mining region, says:  "During the last fiscal year of the  Dominion Copper Co., extending from  July 31. .906, to July 31, 1907, the  company's smelter lost a total of 4000  hours in operation due to shortage of  fuel, etc.  "In the first six months of the  current calendar year the company  was unable to d<i much toward increasing earnings owing to an almost continual shut down, which was quite the  opposite to conditions in the last half  of the year 1906.  "Although the lompany has blown  in its third furnace, the entire smelting  battery has not yet been able to operate  under conditions that would permit of  the fullest capacity being attained.  The plant when working right should  be able to irtai 1400 tons of ore a day.  "The fuel situation in lhe Boundary  district is .serious by reason cf a shortage of curs, Willi labor there if.no  trouble and none is expected.  "It has not even been considered to  curtail production of copper in British  Columbia, but if it were decided to reduce output or even close the mines,  it could be done without much expense, as there would be no pumping  necessary."  Ecoaomlcal Mlalag a ad Smelilat.  Referring to the above, the Boston  News Bureau says:  There have been deductions drawn  from the recent interview with M. M.  Johnson of the Dominion Copper Co.  not warranted by the facts. The company has no idea of a shut down of its  mines and smelter.  The smelter now has a capacity of  between 1400 and 1500 tons per day,  but this production has not yet been  reached, owing to the coke shortage  and transportation difficulties. It is  now believed these troubles will be  over shortly. The Canadian Pacific  Railway is putting in 200 new cars  specially for this district, and the International Coal Co., which supplies  the Dominion Co., is now in shape to  deliver the full amount of coke required.  The ores of the Rawhide and Sunset  properties of the Dominion Copper  Co. can be mined at a.cost not exceeding $r per ton. With a smelting cost  of $160 per ton, the Dominion Co.  can show good returns, with copper  even at 15 cents per ton.  Unlike some other companies, the  Dominion Copper Co. is not accumulating any copper, its matte being sold  for cash, and delivered as produced,  settlement being made at the quoted  rates, according to the Engineering &  Mining Journal, which so far have not  been below 16 cents per pound.  It can be stated that no shut-down  of the Dominion Copper Co. properties will occur unless caused by shortage of coke or transportation troubles,  or by other causes which would affect  all the Boundary district producing  companies alike.

Indian war and medicine dances, by  the light of a blazing camp fire, are  one of the very numerous strong night  shows given at the Spokane Interstate  Fair this year, arrangements having  already been made by the fair management to have about one hundred red  men, mostly of the Flathead tribe,  brought to the fair this year.  A tent is erected on the Midway,  and the Indian dances are held here.  Hung along the walls of the tent are a  number of scalps taken at the time of  the Custer massacre on the Little Big  Horn, and a number of warriors who  took part in the massacre, now old and  decrepit, will be in attendance at the  fair.  A realistic battle between a pony express rider and a band of redskins will  be given every afternoon in front of  the grandstand. This will be a presentation of an occurrence common  enough during the frontier days. The  running fight and the final escape of  the rider will be shown in a lifelike  manner.
