Pathe'S creat travel pictures are
at the Empress theatre tonight.
These  are  something   exceptional      as
this expedition goes  deep into     the
jungle of Central Africa to show the
world all the wild animals that
roam in their respective haunts. The
lirst catastrophe of the trip was the
loss of the expedition's goat which
wandered to a river and suddenly
disappeared down the throat of an
alligator. The disaster served to inform t.he explorers that there was
hunting at hand, nnd in a short
time they had bagged a nice collection of monster alligntors. They
came to the village of Kodok inhabited hy the Skilluks a warlike race
of savages. The party arrived on the
Ahyssinian frontier and that night a
loud trumpeting revealed the presence of elephants of which they got
several. These pictures are like tbe
Paul Bainie Africnn hunt pictures

ago and were shown at. the Empress.

While in Nelson Oscur V. White,
manager of the Slocan Star mine at
Sandon, received the good news that
the rains of the past few days have
substantially increased the water
supply at the property, a fact which
will facilitate the operation of the
mill and compressor plant-
Mr. White'Was also informed that
the mine itself was looking even better than when be left for Spokane
last week to attend the funeral of
his brother, the late Byron N. White.
At the present time the Star mill
is being operated one shift and the
compressor plant one shift. Tbc pro-
Iierty is shipping about 150- tons of
lead concentrates per month and is
'liling up zinc concentrates at the
rate of about 250 tons a month. Approximately 2,000 tons of zinc concentrates are awaiting shipment. Negotiations arc in progress with a
United States zinc smelter which arc
expected to result favorably shortly.
The completion of smelting arrangements will enable the mine to ship
crude zinc ore as well as concentrates.

order to put the property "ii a shipping basis a surface tram 1" 0 feet
length is required from the mine to

mill four miles in length to connect

only question now under consideration by the management Is ns to the
style of a mill to be installed. G. R.
B. Elliott, the mining engineer in
charge of the work, has recently
made a trip to Denver to Inspect the
workings of the Woods water flotation I'locess, and either this or an
oil flotation process will shortly be
Installed,      In   either  ruses  the      mill
will be more or less of an experimental nature, since the first unit will
be small, but the jiresent operators
figure that with the present price of
the mineral tbey will make a profit
even with a small mill.
While clearing for tbe tram, tlume
and mill bas been proceeding, development in the mine has been carried
ahead and there is now enough -ore
on the dump to keep a mill busy for
several months.

"Since the outbreak of the war I
bave pondered the question as to
whether a christian minister, expounding tbe gospel of Christ, should
take the rifle and go into tho ii em lies," said Rev. George Tiit'pin before
beginning his sermon at. Trinity Methodist church in Nelson on Sunday.
"After much earnest tiiought," be
continued, "I am convinced that it
is my christian duty to take my'
; lace in the ranks and help to overthrow the country which would foist
its iniquitous systems upon our land.
The call is ever more and more to
Christians," be said, "and f feel that
my duty is, not alone to urge upon
io go, but to go myself and
take an active part in thc struggle
for right and liberty and I feel that,
:./liting, ns we are against a system
which means evil and oppression, the
•   is on our side."
