One of the largest mining deals ever
made in North Kootonay was com -
pleted a few days ago, when an American syndicate purchased on a working bond for a sum reported io be
S2l)0,000, a group of four claims some
two miles from Cambotirne.
The properties included in ihis big
ileal were the Spider and May Hell,
Excise and Eclipse. Those claims aro
owned by H. M. Evans and F. C.
Wrightson, who own the Spider and
May Bell, while R.E. Drew and Geo.
McLaren own the Excise, while thc
Eelipse Is owned by a Mr.  Smith.
TheS' properties arc high grade silver lead propo'itions. On the Spider
there are two tunnels, one 135 feet
long, whieh attained a depth of 150
feet, while another 7,"i feet long al a
tlepih of JO feet, shows good ore. On
tho other claims, less work has been
done. Pay ore is shown up in tun -
liels and stripping. The nei assays of
the Spider are $56 in all values.
The American company which has
i.aken over tho group according to
the terms of thir bond will start
work hy May 1st and will employ 25
men. This big deal means much for
the camp as there is very little doubt
but  that the bond will te lifted.
Another fact that tend- io ,v revival
of mining in this famous Cambourne
camp, is the fact that the Dominion
government is at present experimenting on ih- treatment of separating
zinc Irom Silver hnd ore, whieh will
put thi- camp on iis feet.
The summer of 1913 i- full premise
for the milling camps along Ihe Arrow lakes and many more big deals
may  be ii porti ,1 any day.

The new regulations in regard to
the carrying of firearms aie now in
force, making it compulsory on all
persons, except Indians and Canadian militiamen when on duty, to obtain licenses before being allowed to
carry firearms,
Under the new regulation-, farm -
ers and pro-pectors must obtain lie-
enses but no charge will be mado
for them if the farmer wishes tp
.-'hoot on his own lands and the prospector wishes to shoot only for food,
while out on actual prospecting work
and in the latter ease only hold good
during the open season. Boys under
IG years of age will be prohibited
from obtaining licenses, except by
ihe request of a parent or guaidian,
who must undertake that the boy
will only carry the firearms under
his own supervision or that oi somo
responsible licen e holder. Reside ac'
in the province for six months . is
necessary in order to obtain a lie,en<e
An important innovation in the
new regulations is the absolute prohibition of automatic gun- or of any
pump or repeating gun< with a magazine capable of holding more than one
i artridge.

has invented a New Record
that will rekindle all of your first
enthusiasm in your Edison Phonograph
—a record that makes your Edison Phonograph far and
away the best sound-reproducing instrument that can he
had. The new record is called the Blue Amherol. It
not only has greater volume and decidedly the finest tone
of any phonograph record on the market, hut
is practically unbreakable and will never wear
out. Go to your Edison dealer today and
ask him to play some of these wonderful
Blue Amberol Records. Then take them
home to keep and play the rest of your life.

Ottawa, Mai'e-h 27.—The important
fai't that if the conttaits aie let now
for the' building of the three battle -
ships which it is proposed be Cana-
' da's addition to the British navy,they
j will not be ready to be placed in commission before tbe next Dominion general election, is now emphasized.
In ease it should then be the will of
'the Canadian pio,>le to recall these
I .ships and make them a part of a
j proposed naval service, it will then
•be perfee'tly feasible to follow that
This was establi>hed in a governmenl statement issui-d yesterday. In
addition the manifesto said:
"It cannot be too seiongly empba-
| sized   that   the'  clause  which  Sir Wil-
j fried  Lai.i um   , n 1  Irs followers      have
' been obstructing .lining the last    two
weeks i-  ilie  first clause  ef  the resolution which Sir Wilfrid Laurier   pro-
' posi'd  I.y  way  of an amendment     on
December 1_'  last.   Kvery  member     of
i the  opposition,  including  Sir    Wilfrid
, Laurier hims'It, voted for  that clause
on February 13 last, as part   of   his
| amendment.
"There has been no display of brute
force in the debate except on the part
of those who flrst voted for this e-lausj
and th.n obstructed it- passage.
"The clause in (question, which thus
forms part of Sir W Urid's resolution,
proposed cn December 12 last, is as
" 'From and out of tho consolidated
revenue fund of Canada there may be
paid and applied, a sum not exceeding $35,000,000 for the purpose of immediately Increasing the effective
naval  forces of  the Empire'
"If  Sir Wilfrid  Laurier desires to recede from his declaration set forth in
his resolution then at most the ciues-j
tion   between  the  parties    is   whether'
this sum shall be devoted to the pro-]
vision of three' battleships for immediate and effective aid    to    the    naval
forces of  ihe Empire,    or    whether it
-bull  le employed  in establishing     a
Canadian naval service.
"Every possible facility for debate
has been afforded io the opposition,1
and they have taken full advantage of
it. Not i/nly have they done ihis hut
they have accompanied the discussion
with unworthy threats and taunts,
which have gone unrebuked by auy
leading members of their party.
The manifesto thin points out the
absurdity of tho spectale of a gov-
einmiat fresh from the people and
with a normal majority of li), being
tie.1 up by such methods.
In nonparti/an circle's the rain oi
manifestos is taken to indicate some
doubt in the minds 0f politicians as to
vhat n ally is going to happen this
The situation is one which wiil lend
iisalf to negotiations and compromise
cn both sides, but what is really likely j
to happen r.o one is in a position at I
lhe moment to -av. It is certain,
however, that the fight over the naval
bill i.s nol over, and n closure' rule will
be intro lucod an.l debated.

The young man looked sbo'kexl hurl
"Well, after all" he said in u low voice

His hostess who was very beautiful

"Define the. word creole," -be said.
And the young man replied,"A ere ■

"And ihe word means just thc op -

Officers of thi* Forest Branch Vic-
loria are already laying the Hold
plans for ibe Ranging Stall for thu
coming summer, ll is expected that
the members of the service will have
one of the mosl difficult yearH fn the
history or ihe province, because of the
heavy growth ol weeds and .grass last
fall, lhe strong probability of a dry

Bl ipa  have'     been  taken  during the

lion  gangs and tie cutlers -hull properly saloguard their operations. Tbere
lias been adopted a requirement  that
strip of .um feel  broad shall  bo cleared ol Inflammable material'after   the
tutting of the right  ol way. The lire'
dan er around new construction   has
lien shown  by every line in Canada1
to bo greater than in any other oper-j
Oreat     devastation     resulted many
years ago,  when liule heed  was paid
to lhe forest, and it was a matler of ■
small moment whether it burned down
or  not.   Bui   conditions  are  changed, i
and now  ibe'     Provincial   authorities:
are co-operating with the. railroads in
suppressing what is' the one of     the
greatest possible economic losses     to
the company, and to the government,
and  tbe  people alike.   The  cost of a
very  efficient   patiol  ulong  the    lines'
ol construction is a mere bagatelle as
compared     with the lo>'ses prevented.'
'I li>. iolicy of the Forest  Branch i< to,
n.ist  money during ihe period       of

a. .1  the) right of way cleared there is
l'i lali re small risk, and development of ]
the country can proceed without    the
tremendous losses  which   are apparent   in eieiy  quarter of th i    country.'
A patrol at  least as elli lent as    that
established in the past year is to be
maintained  this year on the new  rail
roads in course of construction.    One
iooi  patrolman to each ten miles    of
track,  with additional men  on speed-
e s will be required.
Th- lumbermen and government are
wvr'.ing iii.t 'lii'i to tiie -ame end in'
the case of logging operation-'. The
principle upon which the officers of.
the Fore.t Bran h are working is the,
tii" whieh is becoming universally recognized; namely, (bat slash is going
