Tho Granby  Co. employs 500 men, and  has a monthly pay roll of  over $50,000, while the Rawhide pay roll is $18,000.  Devoted to the Interests of the Boundary Mining: District  The Phoenix Pionkkr. is  published in the highest  municipality in Canada-  altitude, 4,800 ft.

Mining  A mining deal is reported to be  pending for the Ptarmigan mine, a  copper-gold property on Vancouver  Island. The mine in question was  recently visited by a distinguished  party of English capitalistsj^arnong  whom was Sir James Sievewright,  ex-commissioner of Crown Lands  for Cape Colony.  Rumors have been persistently  circulated during the past day or  two, of a rich strike on the Richmond Consolidated property, in the  South Belt. Mine Manager, J. JL.  Warner, when asked about it, said  that the reports had been much  exaggerated. A vein from five to  six feet wide had been struck at the  200 foot   level,   he   said, containing  ��� ore  of a  good   shipping  grade.���  Rossland Miner.  For   the   third   time  in   1913 the  Hedley Gold Mining  company have  ��� annotsnced   a  dividend   of  five  per  cent, quarterly, on  the outstanding  stock of the compauy,   representing  a  distribution   of   $60,000   profits  from   the  operation' of  the  Nickel  Plate   mine   for   the  last  quarter.  These  profits   now  distributed   for  the quarter do not represent the entire profits  earned   during   the last  three months   and available for distribution in dividends, but is merely  the carrying out of the general policy  of  the  company  to 'distribute  that amount quarterly.  Quite a number of Boundary  prospectors are diligently exploring  the district in and around Franklin  and Gloucester camps, situate on  the North Fork of the Kettle river,  where a. very promising strike has  been  made  which large blocks of the stock is  held by local -and Grand Forks parties. According to an authoritative  source, it is stated that in spite of  the heavy transport charges 'on a  recentshipment of about twenty tons,  the owners were able to make a  very handsome profit.  Delegates to the international ge  ological    congress',    who  from a trip to northern BritUjbjitts^  umbia, Alaska and the ^Kdjfr, departed eastward on Seg��v$3rd, the  party being split, sora^'going oyer  the  C.P.R.  mountairjjdivisiorVand  the rest by  the CrowsOtejst  route.  R. W. Brock, head of tfifes^^WteV  geological survey, accompaniecTTKe"  visitors,   who   are   routed   via  the  Crows  Nest  line. ' The  party  will  meet again at Medicine   Hat,  and  before   finally  separating  for  their  homes in various parts of the globe,  will visit the  Porcupine and  Cobalt  mining districts.  Another   important   mining   deal  in  the   New   Hazelton district  this  season,    was   completed   recently,  says the Omineca  Herald, and as a  result, Raleigh P.  Trimble becomes  the owner of the  Great Ohio group  of eight claims, on Rocher de Boule  mountain,   and   Wm.  Sargent  and  Colin     Munro      receive   thirty-five  thousand   dollars   in   cash   and   a  block of stock  when   a company is  organized.    The   deal is one of the  most important yet pulled off in the  district  and   there   is   considerable  excitement in the camp.    It assures  another of the big mining prospects  undergoing development immediately.    Another payroll   will be established arid kept going all winter.  A. J. Miller was in town on Wednesday,' says the Cranbrook Prospector, and reported that a rich  strike of gray copper and galena  had recently been made on Finlay  creek. Six claims have been located,  and the surface showings indicate  the ledge to have a width of about  thirty feet. P. G. Duval,-1 R.  McNarth, J. Clements, J. Irvine,  ���B.   Rondeau   and  A. J.  Miller.-are  returned   . ,.,^trr_  .   in   a  75 feet  tunnel of       ... j _..   the "Union *grbuj)J;"'a,,-property'in rtfie ; locators'"of' the~vclaims-.'-whicti  are situated on the south side of  Finlay creek, six miles west of  where it enters into the Kootenay.  As these properties are all situate  in what "has been known as the  copper belt, a considerable number  of prospectors have already started  for the new find.  BIG RETURNS EXPECTED  VR��0M; HIDDEN CREEK MINES  F^r^^undsjf Copper per Ton Predicted���$8 per Ton on a 17c.  Copper^jfrket���Value Double that of Phoenix Mine-$100  riti&Jsf Per Share May be Realized.  Granby earned approximately $8 a share on its outstanding stock' in  the fiscal year which ended June30th, 1913, and paid three dividends of  $1.50 each. After paying bond interest, it must therefore have increased  its working cash surplus .approximately $750,000. The prospect, therefore, is that the company will .be well provided with working capital  when its new Hidden creek smelter goes into commission three or four  months hence.  It has been  repeatedly  stated of late that the Granby management  expects to recover an   average of thirty, pounds per ton from its Hidden  creek ores.    Ail.of the official data indicates,  however, that the recovery  will be just about 40 pounds  of copper- per ton.     With the metal selling  at. 17 cents, the grossVajuebf the 6,000,000 tons of ore developed at the  Granby's Phoenix mine averages  about $3.92 per ton.     It was from the  smelting of this low grade ore thatthe-cpmpany produced copper at a cost  of lO^c.  and earned nearly $8 a share the past year.    In comparison  the Hidden creek, ores   so  far developed,   6,000,000   to  8,000,000 tons,  have an average gross value   of $8  a ton   on a 17 cent metal market, or  double that of the Phoenix   ores. : It  is  anticipated that operating costs  will be approximately as low at Hidden   creek, on a ton for ton basts, as  they are at  Phoenix  and   Grand Fprks..   If they   are, Hidden creek will  make its copper at a very low cost.  For some little time past there has been an appearance of over-speculation in Granby stock. Somelarge speculative holdings that were  liquidated, however, were taken readily, and the market position seems  to be growing stronger. In view of the prospect that the company will  earn between $15 and $20 a share on its stock next year, it is not improbable that the stock may sell at one hundred dollars or higher before the  present advance terminates.���Boston Commercial.  F.O.E. Annual Dance  There was  a general  acceptance  of the invitation issued by the local  aerie of Eagles for their aunual ball  in the Miners'   Union  hall  on Monday last.    The floor was in particularly fine   condition,   and   the   room  was comfortably filled with  a.'hapjpy  throng ;to'f members   and - friends- ^of  the order.    The  music, which was  rendered by the Ironsides orchestra,  was much  appreciated,  arid  was of  the   kind   generally   acceptable    to  the dancing community of the.camp.  who, throughout  the  evening gave  unmistakable  evidence  of their approval by their  repeated  and insistent demands  for  encores.-   The affair was  extremely   well   managed,  [ and in every way reflected considerable credit  on those   responsible for  the arrangements.     Jas.   Marshall,  assisted   by A.   O.  Johnson,   D. A.  Vigneaux and John Morrison, were  the acting  hosts   for the  fraternity,  who cannot  be  other than   satisfied  with   the committees efforts   to pro?  mote the enjoyment of their guests.  City Council Meeting  A  regular   meeting  of the   City  council was   held   in   the  municipal  building on   Wednesday.    In addition   to- the mayor,   who presided,  the   following  aldermen were present:   Messrs.   M.   Kane,   Geo.   W.  Rogers, W. Prendergast, Jas. Marshall, A.   D.   McKenzie and  Theo.  Biner.  H.   Hartley,   the city clerk, read  a   communication  from  Dr. W. H.  Dickson, embracing a  report on his  analysis of the-milk sold in the city,  which   the  doctor  says   was  satisfactory.    Thos. Richards also wro,te  the council  complaining of the condition   of the   premises   adjacent to  his residence. * The council evidently considered   the  complaint justifiable and the city clerk was ordered  to write  the owner of the property,  warning him   to put  the building in  proper shape, on  or before October  10th.     It   was further   agreed   that  in default of a non-compliance with  the order,   the   property ' was  to be  demolished.     A.   A. McMillan also  addressed the  council  by letter, informing them of his early intention  to install a septic tank in connection  with   the     King's   hotel   building.  Some  discussion   ensued  over   the  tender  of   George   Evans  for   the  painting of the city  hall, and it was  agreed to accept it on condition that  the figure included the varnishing of  all woodwork  in   the council chamber.  At   the   instigation   of  Alderman  McKenzie, it was agreed  to request  by the finance committee, were .ordered to be paid: N. Lemieux; $4.55;  W. J. Loutitt, $28.00; H. Hartley,  $100.55; British Columbia Gazette,  $32.50; Morrin, Thompson company, $3.20; C.P.R. company,  $1.75; Phoenix Pioneer, $1.00; W.  Forshaw, $4.00; A. McPherson,  $4.00; Phoenix Water and Light  company, $112.85.  Erecting Headstones  Several    members   of   the   local  Welsh colony have been  employing  their spare time  of late   in erecting  the headstones in the city cemetery,  which   through   their  agency   have  been  purchased   for   the  graves  of  former  residents  of this  city  who  have  died   here    during   the   past  few   years.    Two   of   the   graves,  those of  the  late Thos.   Williams,  and   John     Evans,    have   already  already , been   finished    with    neat  wooden borders and  the stones set  in  position.    The  work   on  there-  ���  maining plot,  that  of the late Sam  Jones  arid   the  infant  daughter of  Mr. and   Mrs., J.  Bellis,   will  most  probably  be completed  this  week.  The three monuments, which are of  marble and granite, are of different  designs and extremely neat in appearance.

Gentle, who is an old prospector,  found the stuff on the bank of the  Embarras river, south of Bickerdike,  in Alberta, where residents of the  district say that much flour gold has  been panned during the past seven  months. He returned to the scene  of his find on the evening of Sept.  15, accompanied by C. L. Richardson, formerly city auditor' of Edmonton; J. S. Scrimgeour, barrister;  and a structural- engineer, named  Wilson.  Count Deno de Spetia, an expert  mineralogist, headed another party  of twenty-four. "There is every  reason to believe that Gentle has  found pay gold," said De Spetia*be-  fore starting, "and from what I have  beard of the country I should say  that many claims will be staked before the end of the year."  3.50  6.00  15.00  5.00  7.50  10.00  9.00  15.00  31.25  80.00  28.75  113.50  1.25  8.25  2.24  .75  10.00  8.10  3.25  1.04  5.00  3.50  16.00  7.50  4.00  4.00  6.00  1.50  1.95  5.00  5.40  McDonald, Donald J  Lot 2946       80.00  McDougall, Thomas  Part of Lot 2735         4.18  Bertois, J.

A general   of the  German army,  evidently  suffering   from   an   overdose  of Rhine   wine,   has   recently  contribute/! an  article to the Berlin  Post in which he seeks  to point out  how inadvisable a thing it would be  for  the   Kaiser    to   even   think   of  negotiating an   alliance with   Great  Britain as long as  the present political   tension    exists    between    the  Home Rule  elements   and their opponents.     He appears to think, -and  there are a great many more of the  same  mind,   that   as   long   as    the  breach exists, it is  a good thing for  the   Fatherland in   the event  of an  outbreak of war with Great Britain.  But England  is  not the   only country in the world with domestic troubles of its own;     For instance there  is the Austrian Empire, with   its ten  million pro-German inhabitants, and  with whom the Kaiser has contracted a  hide-bound   treaty of defence.  Here  again  the   "weakness"   is on  the  side  of Germany.    Then  what  shall we say of the Fatherland, with  its millions of Poles, to say nothing  of the people  of the two conquered  provinces   of  Alsace and  Lorraine.  Are the latter so much   in love with  their   conquerors   that they   can   be  relied   upon   to defend   the German  eagles.      On the contrary they love  them so mnch that they form 60 per  cent of the volunteers in the French  Foreign    Legion    of    12,000   men.  Then again,   there   is   the powerful  German    Socialist    element.       Do  they constitute a weakness or a defence?    At all  events  no  sane person can imagine   Paddy  lying down  or   looking   idly   on   at   the   Kaiser  making   a   Germanic   colony of the  Emera! Isle.  Mrs. H. Hitchcock, a prominent  official of the suffragette army in  Connecticut, is a wonderful specimen of the sex feminine. Her recent  claim to notoriety is the remarkable  gift she possesses of calling up the  the worms from down below and  feeding them out of her hand on such  a dainty as sauerkraut. It certainly  is a marvellous gift, and could only  have been acquired after years of  patient practice on some man of the  family.  A story i.s going the rounds on  the coast to Lhe effect that Sun Vat  Sen, former president of the Chinese  republic, is in hiding in Vancouver.  Friends of the Chinks .in B.C., ho\v-  ever, need not be concerned, over  his welfare. Ex-presidents have  never been known to die of starvation, and if the worst does threaten,  Dr. Sun Yat Sen could easily sell  his name to some enterprising' firm  of chewing gum manufacturers.

The Delicacy of the Summer Season���  FAMOUS CURLEW ICE CREAM-TRY ONE  KNOB HILL AVENUE  A Good Two Years' Record  The Borden government has now  been in power for nearly two years,  and it   can look  back   on a number  of things well'done  in  the. interests  of the Canadian people.     The farmers  have   reason to   thank   the  administration,   which   directly    aided  them      by    the    appropriation     of  millions      towards      fostering    the  science of agrirulture.     The days of  Sydney   Fisher   and   his theoretical  philandering   are   over,   and   in his  stead we have  a minister possessed  of   the   happy   knack of  doing the  right    thing   at   a   time    when   it  will do   the  most good.      Notwithstanding the fact that the Senate at  the   bidding  of Laurier, twice  destroyed the bill  for the improvement  of highways, good  roads are bound  to come, and come by  the efforts of  the present  government  to give to  the people of the   rural districts this  much   desired   boon.      The   Senate  cannot go   on forever   throwing out  Conservative   measures.     The   present government can   look back upon its efforts to save the self-respect  of the people by  aiding the motherland in the matter of naval defence,  with a feeling  of confidence that in  its Naval Bill it sought  to give that  assistance   in   the   manner   mapped  out by the British   Admiralty as being of the greatest usefulness.      No  amount   of specious   reasoning   on  the part of Laurier  and   his friends  can  disguise the   fact  that the people of this   Dominion   are   not only  ready, but anxious to   play the part  of manliness, instead of childishness.  The   administration   of the   various  departments   of  the   public   service  has been along  safe and sane lines,  and the aim  of the   premier and his  colleagues    since    their   advent    to  power has   been   the   welfare of the  people.  Liberals    are   discovering    much  While   there is   no direct   law on  the   United    States    statute   books  barring natives of India from entering    the    republic,    yet,    hereafter,  they will be deported to the point of  original   embarkation   unless   otherwise deemed desirable from an educational standpoint.  d. l.

This is further proof of its superiority.  Mr. G. W. Pyatt, of 15. Southview  avenue, Toronto, superintendent of the  Riverdale Division of the St. John's  Ambulance brigade, writes: "Both in  personal use and first aid work I have  proved Zam-Buk to be of great value.  I have used it for the past five years,  and do not believe there is any other  balm to come up to it."  Mr. Geo. H. Westmore, ofl27Yonge-  street, Toronto, Divisional Superintendent of the St. John's Ambulance Brigade, also writes: "I am pleased to report that the members of this brigade  use Zam-Buk when on public duty, and  find it very useful. It is a wonderful  healer. Personally, I constantly use  Zam-Buk in my calling as a chiropodist,  and find it very helpful in healing sore  feet, and as a dressing for corns and  bunions after treatment and extraction."  Surely a balm that is worthy a place  in the wallet of an ambulance officer  should find a place in your home!
