Nearly Hundred Dollars Subscribed for Belgians at
Sacred Concert
The sacred concert given on Sunday
evening  In  the  Empress  theatre     by
Miss Frances Lawson in  aid   of   the
Belgian      Relict  fund  whs a  splendid
success.      Long  belore    the     concert
started, the theatre was crowded   to
its  utmost  capacity.  The stage    was
most artistically decorated by     Mrs.
Bruce Lawson, assisted by the   Home
Guard  which    arranged     Mugs  which
they loaned for     the occasion.     The
Mugs were:  British,    French,  Belgian,
Japanese,  Russian  and  Servian,  and
they made a pretty picture, arranged
on the white background. The   stage
was beautiful with cut flowers     and
potted  plants   The centrepiece was a
great  bowl     of     autumn leaves and
berries while at each end were   huge
vases ailed  with  magnificent blooms.
On one side were     yellow marigolds
und  ferns und  on    the  other dahlias
and sheaves of corn. The fiowers were
the gitts of Mesdumes H. N. Coursier
A.  Haggen and  S.  G.  Robbins.     On
the platform was a smull table draped with thc Canadi in Hag, where the
well filled plates were placed after th.j
collection had been taken up.
The concert Itself was well rendered
the program  being     carried     out as
published   with  the  exception  ol  the
solos by Mrs.  Walter Bews and   Miss
Pauldin.' who  were unavoidably    absent on account  of illness. The   concert was preceded by a short   speech
by  Dr.   J.H    Hamilton,  explair.'.ng ln
a  few well chosen  words,  the  object
of the gatherine.      Most    of the performers were well known to the public, but special mention may be made
of a few who were strangers     to the
musical  world  of      Revelstoke.     The
violin solo by Miss Wilson was splendidly rendered,  proving her to be an
artist ol ability.  Miss Borden has   a
soprano voice wnich   .rill le ,i    great
asset  to  musical  circles here.      Miss
Robertson has a rich voice     ot very
pleasing quality   and  her  "Son?     of
Thanksgiving"    was greatly enjoyed.
The Belgian Anthem sun..- in    French
by  Mrs.  S. G    Roblvns 'v«s sn^ndid
indesd and very  appropriate.    Major
Sclater oi  Vancouver   delight<ed   the
audience with  the singing of      "Rule
Brittania" and for an encore, "Scots

This most successful gathering was
brought to a close by the singing of
"Tne Maple Leaf" and "God Save
the King," b\ the entire audience
standing. The proceeds of the concert

camp in southern British Columbia
today, shipments running close on
7000 tons a week. For the portion of
the year to date shipments from this
camp have amounted to close on
250,000 tons, ol n probable value ot
about $2,500,000.— Vancouver Province.
A property that has attracted a
good deal of attention from tli me to
time, mainly ou account of the fact
that platinum is associated with the
values, is the Molly Gibson in Burnt
Uasin. Two veins have so lar been
developed. A third has now heen discovered, and is reported to he seven
feet wide and to carry values of $31
per ton,
It is very gratifying to find thc coal
miners on Vancouver Island exhibiting their loyalty by handsome contributions to the Canadian Patriotic
Fund. The employees of the Western
Fuel company have sent in their tirst
subscriptions, and the employees of
the Canadian Collieries Limited have
agreed to a deduction from the payroll regularly for the same object.
While none of the big silver-lend
mines of the Slocan are now' shipping, there is considerable activity
among smaller properties. A thousand sacks of ore have been packed
out from the Mountain Con. The
Reco proposes to resume shipping
when snow flies. The Payne has again
started up. J. Keene Iiub taken a
lease of the Ivanhoc mill nt Sandon,
and will use it to treat the ores of
the  Surprise and Wonderful.
Indications are that the Florence
mine at Ainsworth, being developed
liy the Florence Silver-Lead Mining
Co., of Spokane, will take rank as a
large producer in this section at no
distant date, as, according to one
informant, who w?s through the mine
recently, shoots of a good grade of
ore are being opened ap everywhere.
The Florence has shipped very little
hitherto but development bas been
■steadily maintained.
A solution of the problem of what
to do with the unemployed might be
lound in placer mining ulong the Lardo river, if conditions next summer
show no improvement over what exist? at the present time. It is said
on reliable authority that as high as
$5 per day nas been made by "panning" along the banks of the streum
that flows into the north end of the
lake, hut in ordinary flush times this
is not considered a fair return for
the unpleasant nature of the work.
No donbt the owners of large leases
of placer ground would favorably
consider the sub leasing of small
ureas to individuals on a royalty
■basis, as this method would serve to
help prospect the ground.
A total of 7,.'is I tons of ore was
received at the Consolidated M. &
S. smelter at Trail between October
9th and October l.'ith, inclusive. Of
this amount none at all of the Slocan or Ainsworth shippers contributed a ton the only silver-lead shipper
of importance being the Sullivan, in
East Kootenay, which sent in 585
tons. Shipments were:

The proposal of tho Consolidated
Mining & Smelting Company Limited for settlement of purchuses of silver-lend ores have not met with acceptance of Slocan mine owners, with
the result that none ol theso mines
appear on thc list of shippers at
present. The change to New York
e.iuotations for settlement of lend con
tents in not considered so favorable
as tho London quotations formerly
in use, and objection is taken to the
additional 1 per cent, deduction for
such lead contents. No doubt an effort will be made to arrange these
points of contention to enable the
silver-lead mines to resume shipment.
An excellent illustrated advertising
pamphlet now being given wide cir
culation by tbe bureau of provincial
information, Victoria, has the following notes on mining in the province: It is officially estimated thai
the CrowsneBt coalfields alone contain coal suthcient to supply tive million tons ol coal a yeur for seven
thousand years. There are 300,000
square miles of lund open to prospecting ,or mineral. An individual
Iree miner's licence costs $.*> a year.
A licence to prospect tor coal over
a square mile ot unreserved government land costs SUM n year. Iron
ore exists In large bodies. Some ol
them close to extensive coal areas
and water-power. Steel and iron
manufacturers are Invited to examine conditions. Gold, silver, copper and lead mining are firmly established on a paying basis. Mining
for zinc is in Its initial Btagc. British Columbia smelters are handling
many hundreds of thousands of tons
of high and low-grude ores, and milking thousunds of pounds of blister
copper and also of refined lead. Marble, fireclay, limestone, sandstone,
and brick clay are subsidiary products, chiefly used in building, the
manufacture of cement, etc. British
Columbia mining affords a first-class
field for capital, handled by experienced and careful investors. The industry, in practically all ot its brunches throughout the province, is developing in a stable and satisfactory
manner The incoming of railways,
the extension of the present railway
system in British Columbia, will undoubtedly stimulate mining in the
province, and render accessible areas
known  to  be mineral  bearing.

United Slates Tariff Overruled
by Customs Officials, Who
Impose High Duty
As a result ol the ruling just promulgated by the United States customs otlicers an ad valorem duty of
15' per cent has been imposed ou a
large number of lumber items which
have for months been entering the
States duty free from Canada, and
the situation affecting the timber industry in this province has beeu further complicated. Inasmuch as the
new order is the result of a decisiou
by the assistant attorney-general at
Washington, who has overruled the
opinions of the customs department
and the board of e.uBtoms appraisers
at Now -e/ork, it is probable thut the
provincial government will bring the
matter to the attention of the Department of trade and commerce at
Tho customs appraisers, in a case
originating in New York State, held
that under the new tarifl all the
lumber iu question should be admitted free. These rulings have now, apparently, been set aside and instructions issued to collect a 15 per
cent nd valorem duty.
In announcing the action of the
United States customs officials in
placing the duty on British Columbia, The West Coast Lumberman
gives the following details:
"All lumber which is further manufactured than planed and tongued
and grooved is now held to be dutiable. This covers all beaded material,
coved lumber, novelty siding, moldings and a large number of other
"The customs officials hold that all
coved material, such as coved flooring, is dutiable. Also that car roofing which has a cove on the bottom
nnd  battens are dutiable.
"The new ruling has caught a number of British Columbia mills with
United States orders on their books
who are either compelled to cancel
the business or pay thc duty to get
their lumber into this country."

"Then, a-gain, in the summer people do not work

they have more time for reading it is logical to state
that they have more time for reading advertising.

Military Tactics
The wise military commander changes his plan of campaign to
fit conditions as the progress of events dictates. The wiae
business commander does the same.
Firms that have never before seen the tremendous power of
well directed, skilfully-prepared advertising based on a plan
that is fundamentally right, will make use of this modern merchandising force now;., old advertisers, wSse and experienced,
will expand along new lines—by means of advertising.
Canada is face to face today with enormous opportunitiea.
new markets are opening, new opportunities are unrolling before established husinesB. What is required is quick re-odjust-
iment, a change ol thc plan of campaign to fit the new conditions.
Newspaper advertising will be the right-hand assistant ol those
who forge ahead (n this crisis, not ordinary advertising however; the efficiency will have to be high, the plan and copy carefully laid out and skilfully   prepared.
No expense nor obligation attaches to a friendly discussion of
thc new opportunities eithei In person or by mail. The late of
YOOR business may rest on your decision to act on this suggestion.
