Discoverer Claims to Have
Located Another Eldorado
Near B. C. Boundary.
Another Eldorado, one that
promises to yield as rich a harvest of gold as the Klondike, according to the discoverer, has
been found in the Liard River
district, Northern Alberta, states
Mr. Charles F. Law, Canadian
representative for the D, A.

returned after spending the last
two months in the Peace River
The "big strike" has been
made not far from the British
Columbia boundary. The field is
said to extend over an area of
more than 300 miles. The prospector who claims to have made
the lucky find has been exploring
the region for the past seven
years. He declares now that the
quest has been successful.
Mr. Law is so firmly convinced
that a really big strike has been
made that ho has become associated with the discoverer and
plans to send in an expedition to
examine the claims. The conditions for mining are almost iden-

CHARLES   A.   GASKILL,   Manager. Corp. Hancock Writes interesting Letter Telling of
Life in Training Quarters.
A very interest ing letter hap
been received by H. VV. Cross
from Horace Hancock, now a
corporal with the 54th Battalion
at Vernon. Very little information is given out regarding the
actual daily work of the men in
training, so the news in Mr.
Hancock's letter is very enlightening.   He says:
"You ask me how 1 like soldiering !   Well, so far 1 have enjoyed it fine, and I am beginning to
feel very (it.    We get up at 6
o'clock, have an  hour's exercise
before breakfast,   which   is  at
7-15.   Then we shave and clean
up tents;  then  we drill  from
8-45 to 11-30.   Dinner is at 12,
and then comes drill again from
1-30 to  4-30.   Supper   is  at  5
o'clock and then we are o(T until
9-30,  when we have to  be  in
camp.   Lights are out at 10 p.m.
So you see we live a very busy
life.   The grub is not so bud, but
of course it is served up rather
roughly.   Conditions are responsible for that.   We have enough
to eat and the food is wholesome.
We sleep in tents, eight men to a
tent, our feet to the centre.  We
have a rubber ground sheet and
three thin blankets, and  believe
me it's   pretty   cold   at   nights
sleeping on   the   hard  ground.
But of course they are making
us tough and we
at it.
Widespread interest has been
aroused by the recent publication
entitled "How to finish British
Columbia Wood,'' which is being
circulated under the direction of
the Hon. W. R. Ross, Minister
of Lands. Numerous requests
for copies are being received,
not only from within the Province, but also, from the prairie
and eastern provinces, and already it has been found necessary to issue a second edition.
In addition to the lumber companies, applications are coming

not,  sits rather sourly on  the
Briton's   stomach.   The   sharp
contrast to that thoroughly drilled!   moulded   and   regimented '■
state which Prussia typifies is
found in England.
One labor union coolly tying
up the coal mines, on which the
navy and all munition factories
depend, until working conditions
are adjusted to suit it, and other
unions threatening a general
strike if conscription is adopted,
reveal a social condition quite at
the other pole from the Prussian
ideal. Whether this contrast will
outlast the war is one of lhe big
questions of the day.

Opposition to conscription   ... , ,     upQn application
England is by no means confined 110 the Fo,.est Branch, Victoria,
to labor unions. For example,
The Economist and The Statist,
leading financial journals, oppose
it. They must reflect a large
section of City opinion. One
argument is : Why adopt Prussian militarism for the purpose
of beating Prussian militarism ?
The volunteer system has furnished three million men, and
evidently that is rather more than
the War Oflice has been able to
officer, drill and equip.
Though conscription may fur-
ish the raw material for an an
army, it cannot furnish the trained officers and the equipment,
which make the finished product.
It is urged, too, that conscription
completely eliminates the
equation.   There is virtue ina
