methods of reaching this rich
deposit, and its most economic
working. The heavy slum deposit and great under-pressure
would seem to leave an uprise
from an under - channel tunnel
out of the question. The consensus of opinion seems to support some such means as those
employed on Upper Lightning,
i. e. a number of shafts sunk
simultaneously and thus draining
the entire valley. This no doubt
will be accomplished during the
coming summer.
Williams and Antler Creeks
are paraleil cases, where millions
have been mined from a small
area, while their benches, especially on Antler, will make great
hydraulics. The reason that
these Creeks have not been
worked as in the Yukon District

According to (lovernment records a very little over two miles
of Lightning has only been worked, ami it has produced approximately twelve million dollars.
rem paradoxical that
orations on such a rich
Creek be confined to such a
small area, but it is explained by
the fact that in proceeding down
stream ih'' values became less,
and the bed-rock dipping to great
depth made drainage impossible.
But the fact of the values diminishing dues not prove that the
Creek becomes a blank or that it
remains so for any great length.
This has heen demonstrated on
many Creeks in the Yukon, es-
pecially Bonanza, Eldorado, Dominion and others, all of which
helped lo make multi-millionaires. These Creeks had their
blank spaces, some of them for
over a mile, when pay dirt would
come in again equally as rich as
where it disappeared. This same
fact has been established by recent borings on many of the
Creeks that were so short and
rich in the Barkerville District,
namely Lightning, Williams,
Antler Chisholm and others.
The portion of Lightning that
yielded so much gold was approximate',;, one hundred feet deep.
The gold was heavy lead gold
and was principally on bed-rock.
Much difficulty  was   found   in nearest point  on
reaching bed-rock on account of 'and the minimum freight rate of

Dec. 9, 1914.
Editor of the Herald:
It seems to me that the time is
ripe for the farmers of this district to unite in an effort to improve our chances of success.
We have a chance to succeed.
We have our land. We have the
Lrawn and I believe the energy;
and we have a good market, a
market that will be better if we
show the people what we have
done and what our prospects are
for the future,
I am a farmer, first, last and
all the time, and therefore am
interested in ourselves and our
success. It is evident to anyone
who fairly considers the conditions in this district that if this
is ever to be the home of a contented people, the farmers must
make it so.- This very fact imposes upon us a responsibility
which means rather more than
eking out our own individual
existence.
The advantages of an ORGANIZED COMMUNITY OF FARMERS are too many to be given in
full here, but I will give some of
the most significant ones:
Larger and more confident
market;
Less cost of marketing our
crops;
Makes it easier to get assistance for those who need it;
Makes it easier to get aid from
the Government in thc way of
roads, bridges, seeds, etc.
As a first step it is requested
that each farmer who receives
one of the enclosed blanks,
answer the questions as correctly
as possible and mail same to the
undersigned at the earliest practicable date.

In discussing what effect the
"war situation" will have on the
business situation, a prominent
Canadian financier expresses
the belief that early in the
coming year there will be a readjustment of conditions that
will result in a marked improvement in business regardless of
what may take place in Europe.
He bases his conclusion on the
fact that the first of a new year
is the period of inventories and
adjustments by all the large
industrial and financial concerns.
Conditions that obtained at the
end of July still arbitrarily obtain in the securities market, and
the big security holders desire
that it continue to govern until

policy which in the past allowed Big Interests to secure1
large bodies of rich land at a small figure, and hold these
lands at prohibitive prices.   As far back as three years
ago some of these hinds were resold by corporations to
British and United States speculators at prices as high as

lands are held back from improvement by speculators.
Toe quarrel is not with the individuals, but with the

their days in
the open, the incidence of scarlet
fever and diphtheria is much less
than during the inclement months,
when so many are brought together
in the schools and in their own
homes. The cold damp weather
lowers a child's resistance to such an
extent that he is a prey to germs
which ordinarily would be thrown
off, and his close contact with his
fellows makes him a source of danger
to many others, Parents are urged
to wa'tch closely the health of every
child, and not at any cost to regard
lightly a complaint of sore throat.
"Such a complaint should be attended to by tt, physician and regarded
as diphtheria until proven otherwise" declares Conservation, which
continues ivith the statement that
if this were universally done there
would he few deaths from diphtheria

pointed out also that the effects of a

"Townsite Exploitation versus
its arean
A condition that never should
be lost sight of, a conditir n that
is the real cause of the war in
Europe today, is this: You cannot by edict of Emporers and
Rulers fasten an unequal yoke on
the people and expect harmony,
good feeling or peace. Sooner
or later strife and disaster wil
come, So with this station de
cision. If it is. not set right
now, it will return as a thorn'in
the flesh. Right and justice and
the people's will must conquer,
woe will be the heritage of that
man who tries to thwart it.

Next Year's Crop.
Have you made your arrangements for next year's crop ? Whether we are to have peace soon or a
continuation of the war, it behooves
everyone who has tillable land, to
raise a bigger crop this year than he
did last year. No matter whether
the area you can plant is large or
small, plant it. We plead for an
alliance between the people of this
community and the forces of nature.
If wc do our part, nature will do
hers. The person who makes two
potatoes grow whore only one grew
before is a contributor to national
wealth and the reduced cost of living.

DUTY IS POWER THAT
arises with us in the morning and goes to rest with us at
night. It is co-extensive with
the action of intelligence. It is
the shadow which cleaves to us,
go where wc will.
Let us do our duty in our shop
or kitchen, in the market, the
street, the office, the farm, the
school and the home just as faithfully as we stood in the front
ranks of some great battle and
knew that victory for mankind
depended upon our bravery,
strength and skill. When we do
that the humblest of us will be
serving in that great army which
achieves the welfare of the
world.
It should be the slogan of
every rural and town consumer
never to Bend, away for goods
that he can just as well buy at
home. Every time you send a
dollar to a mail-order-house that
dollur, as far as you and your
community are concerned, is
practically out of circulation.
Your home merchants are
the ones that help to keep up
your schools, your churches and
your town. They are the ones
who deserve your trade, and not
some catalogue house in Winnipeg
or elsewhere.
Gives You Goods on Unsecured
Promises
WHEN YOU HAVE NOTH-
ing else to give in exchange,
to whom do you go for accommodation until some uncertain
tine when you can pay?
Do you not always find your
home merchants ready and willing to let his goods go on
promises, not guaranteed notes,
but verbal promises, trusting to
vour honesty and good luck in
meeting the obligation later?
How many farms have been
paid for by your merchants advancing tho goods to keep life in
the body, and cash to meet the
dreadful interest on the mortgage?
Under the same conditions
would the farmer trust the merchant for months and months
with the produce on his farm, or
would he ask for cash or its
equivalent upon delivery of the
goods?
Merely Institutions
of Accommodations
TT SEEMS UNBELIEVABLE,
A but nevertheless it is a fnct,
and Bhows the entire lack of »ny
sense of justice, but ninny people
regard their local stores as merely institutions of accommodations.
When these people have cash to
spend it goes to the far-away-
muil-order-houses, but when
times are dull, when they are
sick or out of work, or during
the season when the farmers are
not turning their produce into
cash, what do they do? Oo they
write to the catalogue house anil
tsk for credit?
If they did. do you think they
would get it? Not on your life.
Those concerns must have cash,
must have it in advance, must
have it before you can even see
the goods you buy. The consumer sends his money and then
sits down and waits until the
mail-order-house gets good and
ready to fill his order. But when
people want credit or favors of
any kind, they hustle off to their
home merchant, very obligingly
order what they want, and tell
him to wait at least from one to
six months for his pay.
In buying from your home
merchants you deal with nelgn-
bors. Buy with goods before
you. Have goods delivered free.
Return goods if not satisfactory-
