Bad Accident
Just before noon last Sunday a
log fell on Alex Gallagher, who
was helping to build a house at
Thirteen-mile for Mrs. Anna Paul,
breaking his right leg below the
knee and two of his lower ribs
on the left side. The leg fracture is compound and is pronounced by Dr. Rogers, who attended the case, as being of a
very serious nature. When Gallagher was pickid up the bones
protruded through his clothing
and he lost a considerable amount
of blood besides suffering excruciating pain until he could be
brought to town for treatment.
Owing to the rough condition
of the road it was impossible to
bring him down by team, and
volunteers carried him the entire
distance on an improvised
stretcher, which was an arduous
task, as the victim is a heavy
man. Bringing him down consumed the whole of Monday. He
was left overnight at the home
of Albert Mayer, in charge of
Mrs. Mayer, who is a graduate
nurse, and on Tuesday was taken
to Rupert on the Carmen, Dr.
Rogers accompanying him. The

WIDE OF THE MARK
IF George Bernard Shaw would confine himself to Iiteratnre and the drama
instead of permitting his native wit and
undisputed cleverness to run amok on
subjects of which his knowledge is woefully limited he would not have been guilty
of the suggestion that Lloyd George has
expressly committed himself to bring
Great Britain into war with the United
States. No better rebuke could have been
administered than that of Henry Arthur
. Jones whose eminence in the dramatic and
literary world has not impaired the clarity
of his vision. Of Shaw's outburst he says
in part as follows:
If there is any American, who, from
ignorance of the habitual, confirmed ineradicable English feeling toward America,
is likely to be deluded by Mr. Shaw's
latest and grossest attacks upon the
country that too long has harbored him
and has basely submitted to be jeered at
and spat upon by him: if there is an American who is likely to lend a a moment's
credence to Mr. Shaw's foul and crazy assertion, I assure him with the utmost confidence that under no conceivable circumstances could my countrymen be persuaded or cajoled or duped or forced to
load a single bullet against America. It
is a stark impossibility. I have no doubt
that accredited leaders of American
thought and feeling will reply to this
criminal anarchy that, if it took two
years to bring pease-loving Americans
against all their nafional traditions and
national policy into war with Germany, it
will take two thousand years to bring
them into war with England.
Mr. Shaw invariably makes a mistake
when he begins to talk politics. In his
own country he is a prophet without honor.
He is a triumph in originality; but his
genius for mischief may be misunderstood
by an element in the United States which
has made rapid strides towards a correct
understanding of the British people after
years of suspicion. Happily for the good
of the two countries the great bulk of the
American people as well is its press take
Mr. Shaw with a large grain of salt.
Antipodean statesmen as well as prominent
Canadian will be warmly welcome^ jby
President Harding. He recognized at the
mtset that this country and the Australasian continent have a particular and
vital interest in Pacific problems and the
interwoven question of armaments.
It has been argued in some quarters
that a consolidation of Empire opinion
took place at the recent conference in
London; but it must be remembered that
the forthcoming gathering will produce
angles of international relationships
which will have to be dealt with on their
merits and in accordance with the process
of adjustment which the conference may
see fit to apply. No understanding
reached between the Prime Ministers of
the Empire in London may be regarded as
anything like a stereotyped formula for
use in discussions whose course no preliminary debate could possibly define.
Nothing short of direct representation
from each unit of the Empire���or such
grouped representation as geographical or
racial considerations dictate���will guarantee that necessary prompting and advice
without which the delegation from London
would find itself seriously handicapped in
dealing with those items in the agenda
which concern Canada and Australasia
more intimately than the Motherland.
While these reasons are obvious to the
Governments of the countries concerned
it is also to be hoped that each official
delegate will be supplied with an entourage of experts whose additional support may be required
as the business of the conference progresses. By
following this course the British government will
simplify its own part, guarantee the production of
a real empire opinion on all counts, and assure the
host nation a more intelligent measure of support
in connection with Pacific problems.

ENGINEER MINE SPIT COMMENCED
Trial of the Famous Dispute Over One of the Most
Valuable Gold Properties in Atlin
Salmon River
Trading Co'y
Trial of the famous dispute
concerning the Engineer mine,
one of the most valuable gold
properties in the Atlin country
commenced in Vancouver last
week. Witnesses are on hand
from Atlin and Alaska, and also
from Philadelphia and New
York.
The plaintiff's case was opened
by S. S. Taylor, K. C., senior
council. According to him Captain James Alexander, whose
successors and heirs are the defendants, was guilty of claim
jumping. Alexander, said council, was a man of no means, and
from knowledge acquired in 1905
when he was employed as chain-
man on the party which surveyed
the claims, awaited the opportunity to step in and acquire
them for himself.   This occured

them alone of the ground surmounting the Engineer mine.
The place had been deserted for
some time, although the stamp
mill, buildings and machinery
were still there. Alexander and
his friend staked the most valuable claims, and returning to
Atlin filed evidence of this in the
office of the mining recorder.
Alexander soon after arranged
with W. Pollard Grant, Vancouver attorney, to fight all contestants who might question his
title on the understanding that
Grant would have a fifth interest
in the mine. Later he was
squeezed out by his associate.
Funds for operating the mine
were secured from Allen I. Smith
of Philadelphia. The money was
loaned,   and  to  protect Smith,

Lode mining has only been in progress for about 33 years, and
not 20 per cent, of the Province has been even prospected; 300,000
square miles of unexplored mineral-bearing land are open for proa-
peoting.
The mining laws of this Province are more liberal and the fees
lower than those of any other Province in the Dominion, or any
Colony in the British Empire.
Mineral locations are granted to discoverers for nominal fees.
Absolute Titles are obtained by developing such properties, security of which is guaranteed by Crown Grants.

Make 'em Nervous
Henry Ford is reported to have
devised a seventy-five ton locomotive that will do the work of
the, massive railway engines now
in use. Passengers on trains
drawn by them may be a little
nervous at first lest they show
the flyvver disposition to jump
the track and climb the telegraph
poles.
Seventy thousand grain cars
were distributed through the
agricultural areas of Manitoba,
Saskatchewan and Alberta for
the initial movement of the season's crop.
the deposits is that they are
being constantly fed from below
by a brine which is forced to the
surface from surrounding rock
sources. Aided by evaporation,
the brine crystallizes into salt,
which is harvested much as ice is
taken from lake or river. Underneath the deposit continued to
great depth. In some instances
borings have been sunk for forty
feet without reaching the limit
of the salt.
