This mill was one ot lhe finest
equipped and most modern lumbor
mills in this district and was erected
in 1003 at a Cost of about. $10,000.
Thc standard payroll approximated
$1.0(10 per month. The capacity of
the mill was about 15,000 feet daily.
The company have their total winder's cut. nf lo^s aggregating many
million feet still in the woods.
Mr. Simon Taylor, ihe managing
director t'f thc company, was at
Yahk at the time nf Hie lire, inspecting the working or his mill there.
The burning nf tin' mill was the culmination of a series of misfortunes
this year. Thc mill has been shut
down several limes this season fin
repairs and was only running to its
[all capacity for the two weeks previous to the lire. Tlie logging engines
have also been giving considerable
Iroiihle this season. Ou account of
high water and other troubles the
camp at Yank lias lieen conducted at
a loss for Hie past year. Together
with no demand for lumber the. com-
pany have not had a profitable season.
Mr. Taylor states that his company have been negotiating for some

The first meeting to organize the
Cranbrook Klfle association was held
in the city hall last Thursday night
und great enthusiasm was shown by
ull present, there being a good attendance. The chair was taken by
Mr. Edward Blwell, Mr. A. II. Webb
acting as secretary pro tern. AH pre-
rent signed thc service roll and committees were appointed to look over
the rifle range and report on ^londay
as to the requirements necessary to
put the range in suitable order and
erect the lengths, etc., also for the
purpose of soliciting membership.
The meeting on Monday last at half
past eight was held for the purpose
of electing officers for tbe association
ami receiving too reports of thc committees. Mr. Edward Elwell was
elected captain ot the association and-
Mr. LcKleur secretary, A. H. Webster being treasurer aud Messrs. W.
■L Nlcol is, C. Loubach and Mr. Davis
permanent committee to assist ini
management. Tbe committee of tbo
range reported that the necessary,
work tn put same in order could be*
done for the sum of $100.00 which
includes the construction of targets,,
excavating pit, clearing brush, flag
poles, ami shooting off mounds and,
then we shall have one of the best
ranges in this province. The assoeia-
tinii has now over 150 members on
tb? .rollI.and new names are still
going on so that a membership of
350 will not he hard to obtain. Ap-
pliealion is now being made ta the
district officer at Victoria and for
the present twenty rifles have hoen|
asked tor which should be sufficient
tor the present requirements. We hope
to receive rides and ammunition at l
an early date so that we may commence shooting this Ml. We hope
those desirous of joining ihis association will enmo forward as soon as
possible and subscribe Iheir names to
the roll ami nol wait to be solicited
and the list will always be found in
the office nf Heale and Elwell on
Noilum avenne. We are fortunate
in having a great number ol men who
have taken up ride shoot ing iwherever
they have resided, also many old'
country service men and volunteers
The organization nf a Wne association tor Cranbrook has boon going on
for several years now, hut only recently n suitable range has been lo-
eated, its situation lieing about one
mile north Of the citv limits on St.
loscph's prairie. The long distance
i.niiie i;m be made up to 1000 yards,
commencing about 300 yards north
of the second culvert under the road,
its direction being north carferly,
against the bill which lortumitely
rise abruptly at this point.
In a Civilian Rille association such
as Ibis the government supply one
iille lui even four men and one hundred rounds of cartridges per man.
This will lie increased as the stand
aid nf shunting improves. Thc annual
subscription is ono dollar, which is
thc only expense necessary. Sn
really speaking there is nothing1 to
proven! every man between IR and (10
from joining tbis association ami

leiSl JUDGEMENT
A, E. WATTS TELLS OK RBCBNTI
THI Ah   AT   MIDWAY      FOK
INFRACTION     OF   MINK
REGULATIONS.
A. 0. Watts is borne again, having
returned from Midway, where he at-
tendril court to answer alleged
charges of infractions of the mining
regulations, Mr. Watts pleaded tluit
the alleged omissions in complying
with thc regulations took place long
before he was appointed general man-
ager of the lloiindai y Coal Mining
company, and that, therefore, those
responsible should he proceeded
against, thafriie. had since he was
general manager Issued written instructions to all the certificated officials employed thai be would hold
them responsible in and for obeying
these laws and regulations, that the
laws were good and the application
of tbem necessary, but that he would
sec that they were Impartially enforced, against great corporation4,
just tho same as they are against
the struggling prospectors who are
honestly attempting to develop the
magniflcent resources of this country.
It was pointed oul that under sec.
34 S.S.C. that the whole of the mining regulations were not applicable
to the exploratory work of prospectors. Sun-section C. reads as follows: "Provided, however, that this
section shall not apply to prospecting or exploratory workings where
less lhani ten men are employed underground at any one time unless the
chief inspector, hy notice in writing
served on the owner or agent of such
mine, requires such mine to he under
the control of such certificated overman or shift boss, 1911, C. 33, S.
30."
The inspector admitted, said Mr.
Watts, that such notice had nol been
served prior to the date of the alleged omissions to comply with tin-
law. The report of Inspector
Strachan to tbe department was
lead, in which he pointed out that
proceedings could not Ih1 taken under
the act owing to the provisions contained in sec. .n, ss.e. or tin* coat
Mines Regulation Act. It was
pleaded that although more than ten
men had been employed at one time
in and around tlie mine at no time
had more ihan ten men been employed at work underground.
The chief inspector was asked,
said Mr. Watts, what constituted a
mine within thc meaning of the act,
and he quoted sec. 2, "A mine means
a coal mine and includes every shaft
in the course of being sunk and every
level and inclined plane in tlw course
of being drlvtn lor opening any" coal
mine, unless tlie context otherwise
requires." Therefore, a nolo made
in th** ground was q mine within the
meaning of the net, and alt tlie regulations of the act were applicable
to it.
In the course of giving evidence Mr.
Watts asked what Ihe context meant
as set forth in sec. 34, S.S.A./lf it
meant what it says, as Inspector
Strachan in his report admits, then
loose proceedings, Mr. Watts contended, should not have been taken.
If every hole in the ground, according to Inspector Graham, was to be
considered as a mine and under the
strict regulations of the act, each and
every hole made in the ground for
prospect ing purposes was illegally
made unless under the supervision ol
managers, shift bosses and other certificated men, accompanied with
barometers, thermometers, ambulance
boxes, daily reports, certified plans
of the hide or holes. If that was
really so, and tlie law was strictly
enforced in every ease, we might give
up prospecting in Hritish Columbia
It would render ordinary prospecting
impossible, but that law or regulation was not enforced, except where
the Inspectors wished for certain purposes to have it enforced, Mr.
Wails declared thnt he had to protect the interests of nearly six hundred shareholders, and for that purpose would make an application to
tlw minister of mines, Sir Itichard
Motlride, for a thorough investigation to be made in public, so that
the people could understand some of
the procredfngs of the Inspectors in-
prosecuting people who were honestly attempting to develop the great
resources of tbe country, and that If
a conviction followed appeals would
follow that.
Mr. Shochotloni, prosecuting attorney, said he would like to have Mr.
Watts in Uie supreme court. Mr.
Watts called the attention of the/
court to the fact that some nf these
charges bad already been tried in
"May Inst, that most of thc local
magistrates refused io sit; however,
the one that did sit dismissed lhe
whole ot the charges. Mr. Shoe-
bottom, he said, had to import a
special Judge on   this occasion      to
support tlie Inspectors, and quoted
the fact as showing animus and
spleen, lhal a constable bad been
specially sent from .Midway to
Wattsburg, Incurring extra expense
tn serve the summons, whereas il is
usually the practice to send them by
mail through the police at tbe nearest point to save expense.
That al tbe first trial he, Mr
Walts, did not attend, but was represented by A. S. I.lack, barrister,
who produced no witnesses, the prosecution produced rovcra!, and thc
cases were dismissed. On this, occasion Mr. Walls "instructed Mr.
Black to answer tbe charges, ^d Wait
iufonm*d lhal tbe court would nol
proceed without his personal attendance, His counsel wired him lhat a
warrant was issued to compel his attendance, The court counsel, inspectors and witnesses awaited the
arrival of Mr. Watts from Tuesday, to
Friday last, lie pointed out the absurdity of the proceedings, because lie
understood thai he had to be convicted, awl was satisfied to. have an
appeal to a superior court, bul con
tended lluil he was being prosecuted
for offences committed or permitted
hy others, hut would cheerfully ...accept the decision of the court, which
would establish a very useful precedent, if a president of ,, company could
Ih* prosecuted personally for the delinquencies of his subordinates, such
managing directors, superintendents,
managers and officials duly authorized by certificates granted hy the government, then he could have extreme
pleasure in applying llie same law
and regulations to the presidents of
great corporations, and would see
that they were applied to the presidents of railway corporations and others, and drew the picture of Sir
Thomas Shaugbnessy and other mag'
nates being sent in shackles and
chains to give evidence before some
small local court for offences either
permit led or committed against tlie
law by Iheir managing directors or
superintendents or other officials.
Mr. Watts pointed out that one
charge was that he did not within
21 holies of an accident al the mine
report the same to the inspectors,
As a matter of fact, Iu- said, be did
not know of it until 48 hours after
tbe occurrence, and he tend :nit in
tbe Nelson Daily News; also, thai a
managing director was ;u charge,
that he was not a tit hat time , in-
self general manager, that the company employed a superintendent,
whose duty il was lo report thc accident, and contended that those
really guilty should,be prosecuted,
aud not the nominal head of a company who was absolutely Innocent
and had no knowledge of tbe affair.
Mr. Wntts was fined $75, notice of
appeal being given, and Mr. Walts
also gave notice that an application
would be made to the minister ol
mines, Sir Itichard McBride, to gram
a public investigation of the actions
and conduit of Chief Inspector Graham ami Inspector Strachan, and
that all the correspondence between
them and tlie department of mints
would Im* subpoenaed and made
known to the public at the heating.
NSPECT GREAT
Mil DISTRICT
UNEXPLORED HEOION HICII   IN
MINERAL    WEALTH   WITH
GREAT VKINS OF COPPER.
• Joseph Ryan returned to the eity
last Monday after spending several
days in the White Fish Creek country, where- he was called to inspccl
and report on several milling properties- He was nccompan.cd on part
of bis trip by tlie Kvans brothers
and ihey Inspected the EiVan.v group
besides tbe Home group, Alliance
group, Basin group and Fallow
group.
Mr. Ryan reports lhal he found a
vein from 8 to 20 feci In width between perfectly clear walls, a fissure
veiii'in diorite and extending with
two breaks a distance of not less
than one and one-halt miles over the
Hercules, Hector and Kokance claims
and passing under the F.vnus Basin
extends on east in a nortlieasterly
direction loward Kitchener. This
ore assays from 23 to 28 per cent in
copper and would average $5.00 in
gold, besides carrying a considerable
amount ot native copper.
He also found a fissure vein from
6 to 8 feet wide on the Pollen group
containing an exceptionally high
grade of ore.
One ol tlie most remarkable discov
erics Mr. Ryan made on his trip was
a le*d of mineralized rtloritc from 40
to 100 feet In width and with literally millions ol tons of ore in sight.
In summing up the result* of his
trip Mr. Ryan slated tliat the. White
Fish basin nnd thc St. Mary's river
basin are yet an entirely unexplored
region, which will prove in the future otw of the largest copper producing areas in the world.
CHRISTIE WILL ARRIVE
NOVEMBER FIRST
HANK MANAGER TAKES THREE
MONTHS VACATION BEFORI*
COMING TO CRANBROOK.
■ 1. M. Christie, manager ol the
local branch of the Hank of Commerce, is leaving in tbe course of ,.
few days on a three months' vacation in Eastern Canada and on the
expiration of lhat time he will take
up bis residence in Cranbrook, B.C.,
where he assumes, the management of
Uh* branch of tlte Rank of Commerce.
There will be general regret in the
city of Prince Rupert at the removal
of Mr. Christie. While managers of
banks are liable to he changed frequently, Mr. Christie had somehow
come lo be looked Upon as a fixture
here. lie had grown up with the
cily from its very beginning when it
was only a camp and had shown
wonderful Interest in everything that
pertained to thc lire of the place,( Hli
intimate knowledge of the business
life of the city was regarded as mosl
valuable in his bank. His prolonged
slay In this branch is an evidence
that the headquarters of the Hank o!
Commerce appreciated tho value i>i
bis services in this respect.
The post «t Cranbrook is one that
is regarded as more importaol at the
present lime than Prince Rupert, li
is, in fact, ooe of the best branches
of lhe hank in the province, and
wilh tht promotion to lhat branch
goes an increase iu salary for Mr.
Christie. While in common with Uio
general practice be accepts tbe promotion lhat is offered, there is evety
reason to believe that Mr. Christie
leaves Prince Rupert with some reluctance, and he would In* satisfied tg
remain here were il not that advancement is thrown his way.
While Mr. Christie did not actually
open lhe branch of his hank here, he
assumed the management very soon
afterwards, taking tbe post when it
had been in existence only about
three months. This was in -hine,
1907| and al that time tho Canadian
Hank of Commerce was the only one
that was doing business in tlte city.
This was on Center street, as the
plank trail tliat served as the only
"street" in thc "city" was then
known. The building was one of the
■'ready mades" that was brought
from thc south in sections and put
together on the spot. It served as
bank and residence until the building
at lhe corner ol Second avenue and
Third street was occupied, but which
later gave plate to the commodious
bank quarters that arc now in use.
The city of Prince Rupert appealed
strongly to him and he entered very
fully into the life of the place, taking
his part in everything that had for
its object ibe advancing of tbe city,
lie has ever shown an unbOlindlng
faith in Prince Rupert and continues
to have the most optimistic feelings
with regard to the place. In his le-
moval Prince Rupert loses not only
the manager of one of its banks, but
loses a valuable citizen. Mrs. Chris-
tic will also Im* missed among a wide
circle of acquaintances that she
made in the city, and there will tie
general regret at her leaving.
The management of the local
branch will Ih* arsumed by Frank F
Haninglon is not a stranger in this
Haninbton is not a si ranger in this
city, having been accountant here in
lhe bank for some time nnd later
manager of the Stewart branch ol
llie hank.
Mr. and Mrs. Christie will leave
here on July 28th on a three months'
holiday in the east. Following tills
leave of absence they will proceed to
Cranbrook and take up their resid
encc ihere.—Prince Rupert  Journal, ,

il LOSE MONEY ?
The United States department of
agriculture figures that toe average
actual cost of all the wheat raised in
the United .States Is 58 cents a
bushel.
Dr. J. H. Worst, president of the
North Dakota Agricultural college,
finds that the potash, phosphoric
acid and nitrogen removed from the
soil by a bushel of wheat, when Bg-
Ured at market prices, is worth tfii
cents.
This brings the actual cost of
every bushel of wheat raised in
America, on the average, lo $1.04).
But the farmers of American never
gel such an average price as that.
Look at the figures below:
Value of wheat and wheat (lour exported from thc U.S., 1907-11, S5..0,-
000,000.00.
Cost of growers, including loss of
fertility, $606,000,000.00,
Loss to country in fertility ft
U'U-. per bushel, S27O.000.0O0.M.
Loss to growers over and above
selling price, 176,000,000.00.
In other words, for every seven
dollars' worth of wheat exported |q
tlw live years quoted, eight dollars
was spent or exhausted in soil fertility lo produce it. Also, and this
is a still more serious angle of the
problemi for every seven dollars'
worth of wheat exported nearly four
dollars was taken out of the country
in the form oi potash, phosphoric
acid and nitrogen, This is robbing
the soil with a vengeance against the
time of our children's children. Some
day the American farmer will pay for
bis carelessness and his devotion to
the ont-crop system,
A revised system ol (arm management which will permit the maintenance of fertility docs not mear, a
lessened production of wheat. Fed
land Kill fiirmyh an increased yield
per acre to offset the seasons devoted
to oilier factors in a proper crop rotation. The German wheat average
is 33 bushels per acre, hut the Herman farmer dot's not grow wheat on
the same land every year. Many an
American has halved his acreage and
doubled his yield. It may be a century before the country at large has
done as much; but you can do It
within ,t few years.     Why not?

the report published in a local paper
announcing that the city's hankers
have refused to accept cheques
drawn by the city. "Any inconvenience that has been experienced in
connection with the city's financial

EDITORIAL NOTES
A DESPICABLE ATTEM1T.
Attention has already been drawn
in The Sun to tho mischevious attempts heing, made by Conservative
politicians to employ tlie visit of the
New Zealand fur party purposes. To
Sir Richard McBride and Hon. J. !>■
lliueii, the Dominion minister of
naval allairs. belongs the .credit lor
beginning and encouraging this des-
ploablo campaign. Since these gentlemen were pleased to express thc
sense of shame, at being Canadians.
awakened in them by the sight ol the
battle cruiser New Zealand, every
little partisan hanger-on and every
emotional individual whose imperialism Is of the unthinking kind, have
been proclaiming their humiliation,
as citizens of this country, because
our Dominion did nol lake precedence
of our sister dominion in contribute
■ing a battleship In tlie admiralty,
and because tlie parliament al Ottawa decided aeainst tile policy of
contribution. It is time thai a
check was pnl lo this effusively sentimental nonsense which is simply
intended to Influence improperly the
minds of the public at the present
time. It is, loo, in the worst ol
had taste thai the visit ol the New
Zealand should lie made use ol. for
such a despicable purpose. Wc cannot
but commend lo the consideration ol
the citizens- of Hritish Columbia the
very appropriate remarks of Capt,
llalsey, at (he luncheon at the Canyon View hotel yesterday, when
Reeve May, ol North Vancouver district, in toasting the guests, vraturcd
the opinion, in tliat effusively crawling' spirit applauded by his party
managers, that Canada should be ashamed of herself, for letting New
Zeatad get ahead of hot in tbe matter of contribution.
"I am perfectly certain," said
Captain llalsey, "that Canada is as
loyal and patriotic a dominion of the
empire as any other part. I am
sure that everyone in Canada wants
to do his share of the work ol empire building, and I know perfectly
well lhat il is not a ease of dollars
and cents at all. It is a ease that
you have nol quite made up your
minds which Is tlie right thing lo do.
But that you will do something and
tliat your choice will be right we all
know. I do not agree that you
should lie ashamed localise New Zealand sends a message to the empire
in the shape of Ihis ship which I
have ihe honor to command. I <!a
not think thai you need be at all ashamed, because, as I have already-
said, Canada is going lo do what is
right and whnl she will do will be
well done."
Canada, as Captain llalsey said,
will do Hie right thing; nor will she
allow herself to Im stampeded into
doing the wrong thing, to serve the
purposes of a party machine and an
embarrassed administration. Canada
is prepared, as Sir Wilfrid laurier said, with that thorough impcr-
'ialism which possesses the minds of
all bis followers, to spend her last
dollar in defence of Ihe empire. But
she is hardly prepared to waste her
subslnncc in making effective n policy
which has not in it the elements ol
permanence and strength. The -contribution programme will never mean
more than a gilt of dollars; a policy
of national construction and ownership will imiin that the navy will become part ami parcel of our lite and
progress as a people and that we
shall foster and take pride in it as
the medium by which we can add our
full strength as a vigorous and self-
reliant nation to the strength of the
mother country when the time arrives that our assistance will bo required to arsert and maintain her
supremacy on Ihe sea.—Vancouver

Dear Sir: Having noticed in
press ol recent months a number
articles on the subject ot mental
healing, thinly disguising the cult
known as Christian Science, 1 greatly desire space iu your valuable columns, to divulge to many of your
interested readers, the conclusions of
a serious student of both the above
systems. Believe mc that 1 approach thc subject with open and unbiased mind. In thc main, there are
three reasons tor dealing with these
subjects through the medium of the
public press, viz., the superficial impressions the public generally entertain concerning these matters; thc
disastrous effects of the doctrines ot
Christian Science upon thc faith ot
believers; thc unspeakably damaging
effects upon those who have not como
to that experience of saving faith in
lesus Christ as Saviour. A recent
public utterance of thc writer concerning Christian Science has been
condemned by some;, by others it has
been commended. On the solicitation of many, and for the benefit of
all, wc consent to give broader treatment of the subject and wider circulation to our conclusions. We shall
quote verbatim, when tlie passages
an- not too extended, from the 120th
edition ot Christian Science and Key
to the Scriptures. The writer invites comparison of quotation with
the text. To those who possess
copies ot the above work issjued"prev-
ious to the 1909 edition, wo would
say the editiim of that date, and no
doubt all subsequent editions, was
completely recast in the order ol
chapters, and rewritten, toning down
and otherwise concealing the meaning
of many passages in the editions issued previous tt, the above date. The
apparent motive of the author for
such a recast ol a work, assumed to
lie inspired ot Clod, was to throw into confusion the references to pa^e
and chapter used by various writers
exposing the subtle teachings of thc
book. 1 desire to acknowledge my
indebtedness to Rev. l. M- Haldeman
for valuable suggestions contained in
his work "Christian Science in the
Light of Holy Scripture," also to
Dr. A. T. Sehodcld lor his "Force ot
Mind or Thc Mental Factor in Medicine,' also lo Dr. l'aul Dubois for
his "Psychic Treatment ol Nervous
Disorders." Christian Science purports to lie The Key to thc Scriptures. Wc shall first examine it in
this light and then see If It has anything to oiler the sick for their healing. Wc grant Mist this so-called
science procures results in healing.
We deny absolutely that the theories
set forth in this system are necessary to those results.

173. Nothing we can say or believe
regarding matter is true, except that matter Is unreal,
and is therefore a belief, which
has its beginning and ending.
It is a falsi' supposition, thc
notion that there Is real substance matter, thc opposite ol spirit.
That matter is substantial
... is one ol Uie lalse beliefs ol mortals.
Thc admission that there can
be material substance requires
another admission — namely,
that is self-creative, sclf-eiist-
ent, and therefore eternal matter.
Matter has no place in Spirit,
and Spirit has no place in matter.
The conventional firm (union)
called matter and mind, Clod
never formed.
Matter examined in the light of
Christian Science disappears,
Matter is not created by,, mind
or lor thc manifestation or support of mind.
Error alone presupposes man to
be both mind and matter.
Matter will finally be proven to
be nothing but a mortal      belief.
What you call  matter was originally primitive error in solution, alias mortal mind.
The burnt finger is burnt      hy

Thc body  cannot be weary any
more than an inanimate wheel,

Every up-to^late woman should

There arc thousands of women with
harsh, failed, characterless hair, who
do not try to improve it.
In England and Paris women take
pride in having beautiful hair. Every
Canadian woman can have lustrous
and luxuriant hair by using SALVIA
the Creat American Sage Hair

Every   reader    of   the Herald can
have an attractive head of hair in

Empire in their annual tribunals, is
again to be the mecca ol tlio red
men of the entire Northwest and
practically the entire country when
the First National Indian Congress
will be held on tho Spokane Interstate fair grounds during the week ol
September 15th. Never before has
the white man of the present generation had as good an opportunity to
see just how much the aborigine has
progressed. Tho Interstate Fair

how this development took plaee and
further give the Indians a chance   to
tlie primitive life of tbe early aborigines, portraying their weird ceremonials and damT.-, and graphically
reproducing, all the old life of l/he Indian. The night show will also be in
charge of the Indians, who will put
on each night a realistic and intensely thrilling reproduction ol General
Custer's last light in the center
field, with the Indians victorious and
celebrating their victory with a gorgeous ceremonial dance. With over
half a thousand Indians in the fair
grounds at all times, dressed in the
full regalia of their tribes and riding
their own ponies, there will be something doing every minute to interest
visitors.
One of the Indian maidens, who is
a famous rider, has already entered
four of bet; ponies in the regular relay
race given at the fair grounds each
day, and she hopes to win the
$1,000 purse olTered. Other Indians
of different. triln*s are at work pre
paring teams for the athletic events
at the fair, and many of their stunts

No expense has lieen spared hy the
fair management in getting the
tribes to Spokane. That it will be a
most representative gathering of
Indians is shown by the tact that the
Little Spokanes,. tbe New Perccs,
the Yakiinas, tho lllackfeet, the
Flatheads, the Kalispclls, the Crces,
the Colvilles, the Snakes, the Sioux
and tlte Crows are all going to send
large delegations to the fair.
It will be a real Indian show. The
Indians will be encamped al, thc fair
grounds throughout the week, brave
and sciuaw bringing their own tepee
and camping utensils. During the
day the Indians will engage in the
sports of their tribes and will   show
stand.
The First National Indian Congress
has the approval and indorsement of
the United States Department1 of Indian Affairs, the Indian Affairs Committees of the United States house

of American Indians. The fair association is bringing the Indians to
Spokane not only for your amusement, hut for tlieir education, and,
