Death of Mrs. Wood-

Washington, Aug. 6.—Mrs. Wood-
row WilBon, wife of tho president of
the United States, died at the White
House at 5 o'clock this afternoon.
Death came after a brave struggle of
months against Dright's disease with
The president was completely unnerved by the shock, aud his grief
waB heartrending. He bore up well
under the strain, however, and devoted himself to hia daughters.
The end came while Mrs. Wilson
was unconscious. Her illness took a
turn for the worse shortly before 1
o'clock iu the afternoon, and from
then on she grow gradually weaker.
Kneeling at the bedside at the end
were the president and their three
daughters. Dr. Cory T. Grayson, U.

and just outside a door wer? Secretary McAdoo nnd Francis B. Sayre,
Mr. Wilson's sons-in-law, and Mr.

wheels of the government practically
stopped while every one paid respect
to the loss of the president.
Placer Gold Staking in
Cranbrook District
Whilst the people are eo engroaaed
in tbe returns Irom the Iront we must
not lorget the developments that are
taking place at our onn door. During the laat week it waa our pleasure to visit the workings ol the placer gold claims staked and recorded
hy Robert Ewen, James Ewen, Aleiander Hurry and Archie Waller.
A representative ol the Prospector
went over the ground very tho.o.i
ly and had explained to him the
workings ol the several claims. These
are situated just beyond tbe 2-miie
poet on the Wyclifle road. The workings are right alongside the public
highway, and while on the Waller
claim tbey are sinking a shalt to
reach bedrock and then intend to
drift if necessary, they are working
the ridges on the Hurry-Ewin claims
and washing the ground from between
the crevices.
The three claims will be interesting
in tbat tbey are all following differ
ent methods. On the Waller claim
they have already sunk a shaft to i-
depth ol about 20 leet and during the
sinking testa have been made of tue
nature of the ground through which
they are progressing. Suffice it to
say that tbey are finding colorings at
almost every test. It is their beliel
that when tHey reach bedrock the
findings wlll be more in abundance
and will more than repay them for
the outlay.
On tbe Ewin claims the boya have
erected a Hume on a small scale
through which to wash tbeir llndings
and at the time ol our visit had a
considerable number of colors stored
up. The bed ol the flume was heavy
in gold. It was observed that they
had ouly been tailing the soil from
between the rocks on the surface at
tho present time. During tbe conversation Mr. Ewen said, "We will just
try an experiment and aee what we
sball aee," aai he took hla pan and
scraped into It wltb his lingers aome

that lay between two rocks, then we
went to tho creek and he washed lt

getting all the dirt out and the

Fierce Bush Fires but
Timber Loss small
Fires in the Cranbrook district are
fairly well under control at the present time. The rain that fell on Friday morning materially assisted lu
their extinguishment. The tires on
Perry creek, ol which there have been
four separte ones, are all well in
hand, and havo done no great damage to the standing timber. Large
areas of logging slash have been
cleaned up, thus removing a Iuture
Ure hazard.
A lightning fire on the Goat River
has run over a large area ol old brush
12 miles up the river from Kitchener. Heavy rain reported Friday
morning at Kitchener has almost extinguished this Are.
The Bull River tie reserve of the
C.P.R. haa been burning for several
days, there having been between 500
and 600 men employed keeping it Under control. At the present time of
writing the Are is still burning in
heavy slashings. Heavy rain would
yet save the reserve. No fatalities
have resulted and everyone on the
river is safe.
Fires in the Fernie district have
been chiefly in Elko, Flagstone, Fernie, Hoamer and Corbin. They are
now all controlled and although iBrge
areas of slaBh are burned over the
damage to timber ia slight.
A large grass and slashings Are at
Waldo across the Kootenay river bas
been kept out of green timber and is
controlled by 45 men.
On Monday about 1000 men fought
lire in the Cranbrook Forest DiBtrlct.
Some of them were employed by the
railway companies, fighting tires lor
which they were responsible. Seventy-live men fought fire two days lo?
the C. P. R. between the Kimberley
branch and tbe Wyclifle road. It is
now controlled and there is practically no damage.
The Flathead country in Canada is
reported to be free from fire but
acrosa the line they have h*n\ engaged during the week with a force
of 1500 men to obtain control.
On tbe whole Are fighting expenses
will have been very heavy but the
losses are much smaller than one
would suppose from the smoke which
haa covered the country during the
Bull River is the only locality

Commissioners Judgo MorriBon and
Judge Macdonald presided over a
moating held in the Provincial Government Building last Tuesday for
tbo purpose of defining the Hues of
the electoral district of Cranbrook
and receiving what suggestions could
be made for improvement from tbe
Liberal or Conservative parties. Tbe
meeting was a very successful one, a
very large representative gathering
of both political opinions being present. W. U. Ogllvie, barrister, of Vancouver, was present in the position
(if secretary to the Commissioners.
The principal speakers were A. J.
Balmrnt, representing tbe Conservative interests, and W. A. Nest.it, representing the Liheral interests of the
Mr. Balment in presenting his views
expressed the opinion that the boun-
Inry as it at present exists could not
he bettered and that it would be unwise for it to be altered. In the
past the present boundary had proved very satisfactory and he did not
see nny reason wh.\ steps should be
taken to have it changed.
Mr, Nesbit expressed h mself along
the same lines saying that tbe Liberal opinion was that the boundary
as it at present existed was very satisfactory tu them.
It was then suggested by one of the
commissioners that, perhaps Fort
Hteele might he given over to the
Fernie district aud add Creaton to
Ihn Cranhrook district to counter-
tin Inn ro the loss sustained by the
taring away of the Fort Steele voting power of the district. This suggestion was very strongly opposed by
all [unties of opinion present.
Thin the commissioners asked on
what grounds Kort Steele had such a
claim on Cranbrook and were answered to the eflcct that the whole
of the commercial interests of Fort
Steele were centered in Cranbrook;
already there was a motor service Le-
tween the two places, ami also tbat
tbe means of communication between
the two showed auch a large difference, and it was pointed out that
between Fort Steele and Cranbroo*
tbere was only a matter of 12 miles
while to Fernie there existed Gii miles
—a strong point to consider when
communication was to be obtained or
business transacted.
Tbe suggestion that Creaton be
put in this district was another matter that brought much discussion.
'I he interests of Creston, it waa
pointed out, were being drawn much
closer to Cranbrook tb:n any other
city to the west might dam. The
fruit country waa extending to tbe
tast and its direct railway communication was another point to consider
,n favor of ita being connected to
if Fort Steele waa retained in the
Cranbrook district and Creaton added the voting power of the Oranbrook
district it would even then be less
than that of Fernie.
Mr. A. U. Smith in his opinion
said the height of land constituted
the natural boundary line that should
be drawn in tiling the district.
Mr. Elmore Staples of Wyclirtf
made the suggestion that the boundary line begin at the International
honndary where it is crossed by the
Kootenny river ami follow the river
mouth of St. Mary's
j river, follow the latter river to the
the   summit of   Kast  and   West   K< 0tenay,

struggle out of which no man at the
present time can possibly see the result, the consequences that will have
to be bourne by thc defeated, are to
serious in their inception that tbe
thoughtful and sober minded citizen
will have much to ponder over during the interim. What tirst began
by the differences between two or
three small peoples has now developed into so tremendous an issue as to
involve tbe whole world in the conflict. The white races bave now
aroused the latent spirits of the
Orientnla who are arming themselves in like manner with the former. We man well ask ourselves where
it will all end. The ier, on idility
that rests on the shoulders of the
civilized races, aa we understand
them today, will be awful in its
or negligence on the part of anyoii'
can not be brought home too strongly.

the time for action has arrived. It
may be we are not ready as we
ahould be. But if we are short in

this shortage by furnishing men nnd
money. L.'t us hope that this terrible war cloud may be dissipated,
that the last and beat word has not

it may'be so, but one thing I can assert, Canada baB had one touch of
an emergency and hereafter Canadians can appreciate th! duty to spare
no effort or outlay to protect and as-
alat the supremacy of the British
Empire, As part and parcel of thc
greatest Empire on which the sun
never acts, an Empire standing for
liberty, for everything that ought to
go to make communities tbe world

Canada must show her appreciation
of the sources of her continued prosperity and well being. Just ns Boon
aa the alien wbo comes to our midst

him appreciating the need of the

for those who are left behind and
work means prosperity.
If it can be said that any wnr is a
good thing, the present war in Europe may be regarded aa Biich, from
tbe economist's point ot view at
least. Its ultimate result may he almost universal disarmament, with a
consequent decrease in taxation. Certainly the financial lo^s will have to
be made up in aome way and the d
feuted nations will pay a heavy penalty. Canada ia far from the scene
of war. Perhaps when the smoke of
battle has cleared away Canada wilt
be stronger and wealthier than ever.
Obviously sojne of the European nations will be crushed hefore the war

Effect on Canada of

present crisis bo averted, tbo world
faces tho most destructive ami murderous war in history.   Nearly twenty
million men will be involved and it
is safe to predict that at least one-
tenth of tbis number will not survive.
Austria and Servia nre frankly at
war and the other European nations
are mobilizing their torcea as rapidly as possible before giving any ultimatum. Great Britain will remain
neutral as long as possible, but if
France becomes embroiled there can
be no doubt as to Britain's position,

Factors that touch the
matchjor war
The forces and factors in Europe
i hut led to war between Germany
and Russia arc complex and manifold. Some of them are immediate
and recent in their operation, others
indirect and of long standing. But if
careful discrimination be made between causes and occasionB, the clue
to the labyrinth iB in our hands and
thc way through the maze is clear.
Underneath all the clashing ambitious of the Romanoff on one Bide
and the Hobenzollern and the Hape-
hurg on the other lie the preBBiire of
economic forces and tbe conflicting
aspirations of the Slav and the Teuton. Tbe teeming millions of Russia
arc earth-hungry and mad to reach
tbe sea and its opportunities for
world-expansion. The Slave there
and in central, eastern and southeastern Europe are impatient to win
their place in tbe aim and unite in
racial fellowship. The Teutons of
Germany and Austria block their way
nnd have their own ambitions to realize and gratify. Conflict between the
two races, European governments and
economic conditions being what they
nre, was irrepressible and inevitable
and bas been coming to a head for
generations and centuries.
So much for the remote cause.
Now for the immediate occasions.
Germanic Austria since 1866 has
been looking under tbe leadership of
Kaiser Franz and the late Archduke
Ferdinand, both ol the Hapaburg
dynasty, to acquire the Slav countries of the Balkans and make its
way to the lower Adriatic and the
Aegean, But Bulgaria, Montenegro
and Servia, the Slav nationalities,
have heen growing in power and prestige, aB bave also Greece and Rumania, which are not Slav peoples.
Austria has been trying to break
them down, Russia to protect them
and built them up. All bave been
selfish and unscrupulous in tbelr conscious purpoae, but eacb haa been
partly tbe creature of circumstances
beyond its control. Austria has intrigued iu the Balkans to disintegrate the Slavs and in 1908 annei-
ed Bosnia and Herzegovina in violation of its promise at Berlin in 1878.
Russia nud the southern Slavs have
schemed in Austria-Hungary to disrupt the dual monarchy through   re
volt by its Slavic subjects. Russia iu
lauH was too wean to reseut tbe
AUBiro-Hungarian seizin e ot burma-
iicr/.egovina, but now it is strung
and uares not leave Servia to be
crushed by Austria,
Germany'a intereat. lies in supporting teutonic Austria as a luuwark
n&aui.st the Slav. Gormany sU yea. s
ago coerced Russia into inaction.
Austria' picked quarrei with Horvia
over the assassination of Ferdinand
on June 29 and over pan-Slav agitation within the empire wn,. the deliberate challenge of Germany aud Austria to RuBsia. The Teuton felt that
his boat hour for lighting th'3 Slav
had come. Thc triple alliance dared
to measure swords witb the threefold
agreement—Austria, Germany and Italy against Russia, Franco and England,
It ia the final and supreme teBt of
strength between the two armed
camps of Europe.
There ia right on each side, and
there ia wrong on both sides, but the
preponderance of sympathy and Judgment in the English-speaking world
falls to Great Britain and Franc as
tbe proven friends of human freo'om,
nnd to Russia as the champion of the
atriiggllng Slav.
U. S. Supply Good
Tbe surplus wheat supply of the
United States will be larger this
year than has beeu experienced tor
several years. This year's supply is
expected to easily double laat year's
record for exportable quantities, under the conditions of the world'b
market thiB ia a fortunate fact owing to: the poor crops reported in thc
Canadian territory.
The official forecast from Washington indicates a harvest of nearly
9u0,000,000 bUBhela of spring and fall
wheat, together with record-breaking
com and cotton cropa.
In 1850 tbe United States produced
a little more than four bushels of
wheat for every human being in the
country. In the 80'a the output rose
to ten bushels per inhabitant. In
1900 the production waa back to bcv-
en buBbels per inhabitant. In 1912
and 1913 tbere was another move
forward, and thia year the yield will
be up to ten bushels again—th'a largest in the history of the republic,
and that despite the enormous increase in population. Last year the
United StateB exported nearly ?15o,-
000,000 worth of wheat and flour, and'
this year the exportable surplus may
easily double that record. There is,
therefore, no consuming market for
our wh?at in the neighboring country.

What Varieties of B. C. Apples
To Use and When
Below is a list, furnished uy the
Department of Agriculture (Hortteul
tura] Branch), of the mote commonly
growu llrltlsh Columbia varieties of
apples to use la each ol uie various
months of the year. The varieties in
capital letters are grown in the larger quantities and are specially mlu t-
ed for use iu tho season giveu.
A succc'ssiou of high-class varliti. n
for tll.'ii' season would be:
Transparent, Duchess, Wealthy, Mcintosh, Jonathan, Grimes Oold:u,
Wagner, Northern Spy, Spltsenberg,
Winter Banana and Newtown.
The liet does not give the maximum range of seasuu for auy one
variety but rather the season in
which the largest nuantitieB may be
hud at their beat. By storing sound
apples under the most favorable eon
ditiolls— a temperature of i'i-'ie degrees, no frost, moderate air circulation and moist air, not too dry to
too wet—the season of most varieties
can be considerably prolonged.

Fraternity is commonly defined ae
the state, condition or relation of
Brotherhood, hence that sympathy
and affection that should characterize
tin' brotherly relations. It hus been

of fraternal societies, How many ot
this vast number are real fraternal-

William Wallace—Scotland's Great Patriot
FOR nearly seven hundred years the sons and daughters of Scotland have revered the memory of
Willaa'. It is not too much to say that this will continue for seventy times seven hundred years.
When hut a youth the love of Personal and National Liberty burned so fiercely in thc breast of
Willace that he revolted against England's tyrannous rule. At the head of his gallant band of riders he
won skirmish alar skirmish, and finally, at the opportune time, quickly organizra an army and routed the
English at Stirling Bridge. William Wallace admired a "ood Barley-Malt brew just as do the Scotchmen of
to-day ftohibition has ever bcen a detestable wond to tne Scotch people. They will not have it enter into
their private lives, and the Scotch vote is always registered by a large majority against such sumptuary
legislation. In America they have done much to build up tlte country Thousands of our solid Scotch citi

Report of Trade and
A special number of tbe Weekly He-
port of the Department of Trade and
Commerce is being issued covering an
interesting and valuable report upon
the possibility of Canadian trade
with China ami Japan and prefaced
by an Introduction by Hon. Hir
Qeorgo ti. Foster, K.O.M.G., M.l\,
Minister of Trade and Commerce, expressed in the concise and vigorous
Knglish which characterizes the work
Of that gentleman,   It deals   with   a
sub J cot «>f growing Interest to all
Canadians und a copy should Me ou
lhe desk of every merchant and pro
dnc»r in Canada mid should roach
the hands of all who desire a concise
nud picturesque statement ol the
lining fade nf Oh.Un ami Japan
and of the future and perhaps dens
IVO Importance of theHO COUntrlJB
more particularly as regards tlio
Western portion ol panada, Blr
Oeorge says
Upwards of I ,000,000 people Inhabit China ami Japan lu n vast
stretch of Island nnd continent facing our Western front duor,   Hei ween
lies a facile ocean now beginning to
quiver beneath the swift keels uf rap-
idly increasing mercantile Heets. , .!
On all grounds of enlightened business policy Canada and Canadians j
cannot afford to neglect the great and
promising field which li >s ko advantageously opposite our Western gateways and which the Panama tVnil
has brought so much nearer our
Eastern ports.''
The report is written by Mr. R.
Qrigg, Commissioner of Commerce,
and Ib preceded by a letter of transmission giving an outline of its contents describing its journey, and concluding with reflections of the character and vWigbt to which we have
become accustomed by his previous
work. The first chapter deals with
the possible eflect of the Panama
Canal and provides remarkable tip-
tirss with regard to thc development
of traffic ncross the isthmus by the
Panama and Tehuantepcc Railways.
A table follows showing Canadian exports to China and with comment*.1
upon tbe character and volume of
such exports. While the report recognizes the probable development of
trade in a multitude of articles which
follow the establishment of a trade
route, and Increase of communication
it iB shown that the more immediate
interest to Canada is foUnd In lh? export of Hour nnd lumber to the Orient. The chapter dealing with the
first of these products Indicates the
present production of flour In the
Western Provinces; a table is given
showing the exports of dour from tho
United States to the Orient fur the
past twenty-oho years nnd Instructive
comments are made upon the principal figures, An interesting paragraph
deals wltb the movement northward
of the flour export upon the Pacitic
roast and the reiiBuns which account
for that movement. A full arguni nt
iH produced based upon the produc
tion of wheat ami Ihuu in competing
countries,    more   particularly     Man
cburia, and remarkable information
is afforded regarding the productivity
uf a mul subject tu Irrigation and un
llmitid lahour under allot huh. 'lhe
results me truly extraordinary and
will be a revelation in many readers.
Important reference is made to tbe
export of lumber from B, 0, and the
iiii.il chapters deal with valuable
work being done hy the consuls of all
natioiiH and also a reference to the
question of Chinese students nud tlu
native press. In addition to Its economic value (he report provides In
Lo resting rending and amply justifies
the commtndutlon of Hir Oeorge Foster. The report upon Japan, which
Is printed in the same booklet und
billows tlml upon China, Is equally
interesting although different conditions have resulted In totally illllei ■
iut ro ports, Nothing la more re-
mnrkablo (ban the contrast between
the two countries. Whereas fow figures are available with regard to
China a contrary condition   prevails
iu Japan und interpretation of the
economic condition of thc country ia
largely expressed by tables of figures,
but the full and interesting comment
upon them removes the work from
the "dry as dust" character which ao
commonly marks such papers. Canadians may sometimes forget that
the phenomena due to the wonderful
development of their own country
dues not exhaust the important problems in course of solution elsewhere
and it is highly desirable that development likely to provide a subject of
engrossing future interest to Canada
should be presented in brief and
graphic terms and handled in the
masterly fashion found in this report.
It is not given to any man to do
more than to suggest a possible outcome of the factors in op-ration, and
Cnnada has some experience of the
foreigner who spends three weeks In a
country and writes a book. In China
this is described as "s.-eing Chim
through a porthole"; but a characteristic of the report under review is
the moderation of its expressions and
the deference Bhown to the experience
of comment authorities. It is impossible in a short article to do more
than suggest the excellence of the
work and advise that application
should be made to the Department of
Trade and Commerce for a copy
which will be provided without
charge. The Weekly Report of that
Department, also distributed without
charge, should hnve an increase of its
already largo circulation If only because it reflects In nn adequate manner economic conditions In foreign
countries nnd is designed to assist
Canadian export. The experience of
thc United Htntes illustrated the
enormous value of such work, and
Hie Canadian public should not omit
to encourage the effort b being made
abroad for their advantage aud paid
for with their money.
Hole in Bottom of
A hole nearly a mile deep was
formed in the bottom of the sea off
the coast of Panama by the recent
Central American earth que! ies, according to apparently authentic reports. As a result of thrse earthquakes, 'a submarine cable was broken, and a cable ship was Hent out to
make repairs. The ends of the cable were found to be buried uod?r
enormous masses of material, and,
where the Government charts, published In 1904, showed a depth of 1,-
000 feet, Boundings made by the cable ship found a depth of r..000 feet.
This remarbajble dbpressioa is located
off Los Santos Province, about fifteen miles from the mainland, and is
about half a mile wide.

Don't Buy a Pig in a Bag.
When you send money to a mail order house,
you "Buy a pig in a poke." You may not get
what you tend (or, ai you are always asked to
make "A Second Choice." If goods are damaged
in transit, there is trouble and at best, an irritating delay in getting matters straightened out.
If your local merchant asked you to pay for an
article before you ever saw it, what would you
say? Yet that is what the mall order house insists upon. Read the advertisements, see what
you are buying, and spend your money at home.

Europe Divided Into Two Armed Camps
The table below gives a good Idea bow the Triple Alliance (Austria,
Germany and Italy) is pitted against tbe Triple Entente (Russia, France
and Great Britain) (or this general European war.
Spain, it ia believed, would hold aloof, as would Switzerland and the
Scandinavian nations. Belgium and Holland are directly adected by a
European conflict, and the former has thrown in its lot with the Triple
In the Balkan peninsula a serious situation presents itself. Oreece, no
doubt, will join its ally ol the second Balkan war, Servia. Bulgaria,
seeking revenge lor Its defeats, no doubt will turn against Servia, while
Ruumanla will oppose any move on the part of Bulgaria. Tbe Turks, it
ia felt will not keep out of such   a struggle.
II any faith can be placed in theae figures which follow, computed according to tne latest statistics available, the Triple Entente can muster
a larger body of troops than the Triple Alliance—10,130,000 against 8,400,-
000. It must be remembered, however, that Italy's army Is problematical,
while the figures given for Russia include her large Asiatic army, which
can not at once be placed in a European conflict.

In addition to the tremendous armies on a war basis tbere could be
called to the service an extra number of 13,550,000 men or tbe stupendous total of 32,541,000 that could be engaged in the war now raging.
Since the above list was made up Belgium haa been drawn into the field
with another 250,000 men or in total with their unorganised forces about
750,000 soldiers to do battle.
Tbe unorganised forces tbat could be called are as follows-.
Russia   5,200,000
Austria   3,000,000
England   2,000,000
Germany    1,000,000
France   1,000,000
Italy   1,200,000
Servla      150,000
The above figures do not give any count of tbe united forces that could
possibly bs drawn from the various Dominions of tbe British Empire nor
can we at ths prssent time form any accurate estimate of what those
numbers would be. At the present time intense enthueasm prevails ln every part of the Dominions and ons can little tell wbat will be the number of possible voluntBjrs for service for either at home or abroad that
will arise out of such a war spirit as at present exists. Suffice lt to
say that in almost every city, town or hamlet tbere are being formed
volunteer regiments to go Into training.
The following Is a very good estimate of the number of aeroplanes
that are In condition to be thrown into the existing conflict between the
powers of Europe now engaged in war. It wlll be seen that the Triple
Entente have by far the larger number and are also much better organised.

Japan wants Peace
Toklo, Aug. 4.—Th3 Jupanese cruiser Cbi Yoda, which is now at Kure,
has been ordered to proceed hurriedly
to south China waters.
A proclamation issued today by the
Japanese government expresses anxiety aa to the European situation and
hopes for the speedy restoration of
peace. It points out Japan's desire
to remain neutral during the war,
which it hopes will not extend to
other parts of the world. However,
lt says that should England participate ln the hostilities and the purposes of the Anglo-Jai anese alliance
be threatened, Japan may he compelled to take the necessary mcaBiirJs
for the fulfilment of ita obligations.
King George speaks to
London, Aug. 4.—King George today addressed a message tn all tbe
British Dominions expressing his appreciation ol tbeir spontaneous assurances tbat tbey will give the fullest
support to the motherland.
"They recall to me," his majesty
says, "the great selt-sacriticc and
help given by them in the past to
the mother country. I sball lie
strengthened ln the discharge ol the
great responsibility which rests on
ine in the confident belief that in thiB
time of trial my Empire will be united, calm and resolute and trusting In
Miners Object
Cardiff, Wales, Aug. 1,—The executive council of the Wales Miners' Federation refused to accede to the suggestion of tbe British Admiralty that
the miners in the collieries supplying
vessels of the navy should work on
Tuesday and Wednesday next, which
have been arranged aa miner's holidays.
The council took the ground that
it was not necessary fo- defensive
purposes for the minerB to work, nnd
they declined to encourage British intervention in a European conflict.
The members of the council suggested that this was an opportune
moment for the miners in Euroue to
force on the Governmeots their views
condemnatory of war, and urged tbe
calling of a convention of miners of
all nations with this object in view.
What is Contraband
Washington, Aug. 6.—Great Britain's contraband ol war proclamation was cabled to tbe state department today by Ambassador Page.
It placed arms, ammunition and
all distinctly military supplies on tbe
list of "absolute" contraband and
designated food, grain, money, horses
and general supplies as "conditional" contraband. Everything under
the latter head becomes subject to
seizure when intended tor the use ol a
power with which Great Britain is at

lines, and those issued by other powers involved in war probably will be

Held in the Flathead Valley of the
Kootenay, The geologists bave had
good ground for tbeir faith; at any
rate, those who took the trouble to
study the question thoroughly. Dr.
Selwyn believed it; Dr. Dawson believed it, but the "doubting Thomases" have always been able to find
a string of reasons why commercial
oil never existed in the Flathead, or,
if it had been there, why it had gone
away. Several companies have valiantly struggled along for a matter
of ten or fifteen years endeavouring
to find the oil. The difficulties, however, have been almost superhuman;
there is no road into the country
from the Canadian side; the transportation of machinery has been almost
impracticable and at any rate prohibitive in cost. One company, however, haa persevered and after spending upwards of $50,000 and putting
down several shallow wells, has tapped such a steady flow of oil as to
attract, the attention of California
oil men, who probably know more
about the subject than any others.
The result is that two of their leading engineers have recently visited
tho Flathead nnd lmvo now continued tho opinion of the local engineers,
both as to tho existence of an »»il
