The Molly Gibson Is looking fine,
according to reports from there and

Alex Paterson, another of the old-
limer.s of the Kootenay and Boundary
left on Thursday morning to continue
development on his mining property
in the Luke Chelan district of Washington. The claims which are four -
teen in number, are considered among
the most promising in that section of
the state assays from picked samples
ranging as high as S24tl to 8360 in
gold, silver and copper. A general
assay, however, taken two years ago
which was considered a fair sample,
returned SIM.SO, $56 of which was in
silver. Mr. Paterson has refused
what many people think wns a very
tempting offer.—Phoenix Pioneer.
Emil England, a Swede, was killed
while running a coyote tunnel on the
Kettle Valley railway construction
on Five Mile creek. It was the last
; shot he was tiring to complete bis
i contract when he was overcome with
powder gas, and that with the explosion was the cause of death.
The addition to the Standard mill
at Silverton is about completed. ln
this will be placed an experimental
1 plant to test the dotation process to
save values that cannot be obtained
in the mill. The process has been installed at the Hewitt mill and is said
to work satisfactorily.
Hilly Morton has made a good strike

Onp of the most satisfactory ne
pecte of thr local mining outlook is
*.he fact that thc industry in and
around Sandon appears to be now ou
n thoroughly permanent basis. At the
present time there are about ->0
miners employed in the vicinity of the
camp and the forces are being steadily increased, says tbe Kaslo Kootenaian.
In Sandon itself there is not a vacant house to be had, everything but
the poorest shacks being occupied.
The somewhat tangled condition
which the municipal finances got into
following the depression is now being
straightened ont and at the present
time the debt is being gradually reduced and the city put in the way of
getting on its feet again.
The two brightest constellations in
Sainton's mining firmunent at the
present, time aro the Slocan Star and
the Surprise, both of which mines are
working fairly good sized crews.
At  the .Star a new  showing of tine
re that looms large as a tonnage
producer, has been opened up in No.

The rest of the property is looking

Show The Way, England
The following poem hy the Canadian poet, Wilfrid Campbell, will come
with es|ieciul force home to all Canadians in this hour of trial that fac-
eB the  Uritish  Empire:
Show  the way,  England
Not in thc bright hour
But in thc dark hour
When the world threatens,
We are your sons—
Not for the might, of you,
Shelter and right  of you—
Not for the paid-coin,
Not for your guns,
But that we love yon,
Sucked at the breast of you,
You are our Mother,
We are your sons.
Show the way England,
And  in  the  fated
Din of the battle
Stand you alone'.'
Loyal Canadians,
Sons of  the sons of you,
Back of the guns of you,
Hone of your bone,
We will stand four square.
Rock of the rock of you,
Ribs of the steel of you,
Let the world thunder,
Ere you go under
We  will  follow  you,
Might of your might.
Show the way England,
Let that grim master
Of earth's dread disaster
But darken your son,
Trust your child Canada
She will be with you
Shoulder to shoulder,
Run to your gun,
She will  reply  with you;
Fight for you
Die with you,
So, wide to the world
Be the old flag unfurled,
Slmw the way, England!
Bush Fires in
Salmon Arm District
The fire wardens In this district are
Laving a very busy time seeing to tho
| various fires that have been started
says the Salmon Arm Observer. Most
of them, happily, have been just
ground fires and very little damage
has been caused after taking into
consideration the large amount of
land that  has  been burnt over.
The fire nearest to town was along
the Chase creek which bas been burning for two weeks but a fire gang is
now trying to extinguish it. The
fames can be seen quite plainly from
several parts of the town. Last week
end it was working towards the Dam
i'nd waterworks, and employees of
the Adams River Lumber Co. were
sent to watch that no damage was
done to the flume, as in case thut
should happen the water supply and
l:re protection of the town would
Lave been endangered.
A fire going through Scotch creek
district burned down a shack belonging to John Westburg, one day
lust we<tk.
In addition tires are also burning
at Squilax and at Adams lake, besides several other smaller fires.

commercial motives for desiring that
the British Empire's naval power   be
] kept invincible. And if the purely
commercial motives are strong, still
stronger are the motives of Imperial
loyalty and national self-preservation. Canada has become a great
country, has become a granary of the
; Empire, because her development
has gone on securely under the shield
of Britannia. The riches of this
country would long ago have attracted the greed of envious powers had
it not been that Britain's matchless
navy was ready at any moment to
come to our defence.

It is timely to recall the old superstition to the effect that wheu two
powers go to war the one whose name
is commonly mentione'l tirst Ib an invariable loser. Modern instances arc
the Franco-Prussian War, tbe Span
ieb-Americau War, the Turco-ltalian
War and the Russo-Japanese War.
The present war is likely to be called
the Austro-Servian War if no more
powers become involved— Toronto

The people of Canada ought not to
allow themselveB to be perturbed
because of anything that has transpired or is' likely to transpire. The
year is proving to be a very difiereut
one from what any of us expected, but
nothing is to he gained by becoming
pessimistic. We do not believe there
is anything in the local situation ard
by this we mean the situation throughout British Columbia, to warrant
anything resembling perturbation. It
nay be necessary to exercise patience
with each other in business matters,
I ut if this proves to bc the case, it
ought to be done cheerfully.—Victoria

Mr. McRae said that, tbe land was

Mr. Kilpatrick and Mr. Bourne
said that tbey were not in favor of
including in the park any land fit tor

that Revelstoke had been granted a

Mr. McRae said there was plenty of
good land suitable for settlement.
The pari; was not a Kevelstoke but a

not think it, wise to ask for more at

Mr. McCarter was appointed a delegate to take tbe matter up with the
government, Mr. Bourne voting
• gainst the proposal.
Mr. McRae thought that the National park should be declared a game

in the park were preserved there
would he better shooting in tbe vicinity, as the park would become a
1 reeding ground. Mr. Kllpatrlck said
that he underatood that the purk

"Forest Insect Conditions in British Columbia" is the title of a new
bulletin Ol the central experimental
farm, Ottawa, which is the result of
» preliminary survey undertaken by
J.M. Swatue, M.Sc, assistant entomologist for forest insects. During
the past few days frequent reports of
serious forest insect depredations ia

I y thc Division of Entomology, and
in view of the high commercial value
of the merchantable timber in the
province, an investigation was projected, The present publication has

immediately the lumbermen and owners of timber limits in the matter ot
recognising the commoner species of j
injurious beetles, and their injuries .
with a view to the adoption of the
control measures which are described.

in these .lays of scientific management there is a tendency to ignore
the human element In humanity to
create industrial machines which shall
turn out their products at maximum
speed and at minimum cost. To be
sure, the attempt is mude to remunerate the workers handsomely for
their labor with the purpose of furnishing them the wherewithal to live
more comfortably. So far as such a
process is mechanical, however, it
cannot yield the best results. Man is
t ot a machine and he "does not live
by bread alone," no matter how much
of it he gets. A prime requisite for
promotion to positions of authority
should he the possession of those distinctly human qualities which will inspire affection as well at: respect. We
are all attracted to the organization
in which the manager is referred to

gines  on  the
power  when  submerged.      Now,  however,      Jules Verne's    dream of     the
Nautilus, under Captain Nemo, is to
be  realized  in the  advent  of the  submarine     cruiser,  which—on the    surface  in  peace and  submerged  in    action—will accompany battle fleets   ou
the oceans of the  world.      The  British muy is the pioneer in this devel- | •
opment.    While  the details are care -
fully guarded,    the general    view    of
navy experts     is that the    projected |
vessels are to  he  of  about.   1,500 tons
displacement  and     21  knots    surface
speed, und that    tbey will    be    fitted
with  tive or sit    torpedo tubes     for
underwater  attack     and   two  twelve-'
pounder      guns  for    repelling    aerial
craft.      The  submerged  battle    speed I
of   these   vessels  should   not  be  less :
than 15     knots.     Our Navy   depart- ■
n.i nt  is meeting this advance in   the
project  of an  experimental  sea-going :
submarine,  for which the Naval    Ap- j
proprlation bill carries nn appropriation i if   $1,100,000,   The   chiet   difficulty  to  be  met  is  that  of  underwater i
driving at  the liisrh  speed  demanded. !
Electric propulsion, owing to the bulk
and  weight of the necessary storage
latteries may have to be abandoned.
This    development,    if    successfully
tfiected,   foreshadows  another  radical
change —  the disappearance    of    the i
torpedo boat destroyer,     which     the i
submarine cruisers, when in action on
tbe  surface,  should    replace.     In fu- I
ture naval actions the combatant vessels would  then be  battleships on  the
surface,   submarine cruisers  below  it, i
ind  aeroplanes  and  dirigibles above, j
in     which the chief enemies   of     the
t-uluiiarines  would be the aerial cruis- ,
trs.   Prom this height the aviator can
readily  detect submerged  bodies,  owing to his freedom     from the     cfTect
of   reflected light   at the surface    of
the water.—Philadelphia Ledger.
