Lanark Makes Shipment and
Completes Tramway-
District Doings
The preliminary review of mineral
production for 191-5, issued by tho
Uritish Columbia Bureau ol Mines,
pointH out various mining activities
in this district.
A revival of interest in mineral
claims in Revelstoke division is reported, chiefly in connection with
bonding properties on which development work is to be undertaken next
spring. Work was done last season
on various placer leases in the Rig
Bend country and some gold was recovered. From the old Lanark mine,
near Illecillewaet, there was received
at Trail in December 'i'i tons of ore,
ns compnrcd with HM5 tons in 1914. It
is stated that a tramway about three
miles long has been completed, and
that more ore will shortly be sent
down to the railway for shipment to
the smelter.
In Arrow Lake division work was
■done on the Millie Mack, situated In
the neighborhood of Burton. So far
as known, no progress was made it
the Big Led ire zinc claims, on Bald
mountain, on the west branch of
Pingston creek.
By a coincidence, exactly the same
quantity of ore from Trout Lake division, 85 tuns, was received nt Trail
in 1915 as in 1914. With the exception of 3 tons from the Ethel, west
of Trout Lake the small production
was front the properties of the Ferguson Mines   Limited, near Ferguson.
There was little, if any, mining
done during the year in the Lardeau
nulling 'livision.

Captain Armstrong
To Go io Front
Announcement is made that Capt.
F. IM Armstrong, who lor .ume years
has been iuspector oi work tor the
public works department of Ottawa
at Nelson, is now leaving tbe government service. Capt. Arn.strou - -s on*
ot the oldest timers iu this district
having accompanied .Major Rogers'
party through British Columbia wbeu
the lirst survey was made by the
Canadian Pacific railway. He ran tbe
first boat through the Kootenay tlata
canal and has also iv.n boats out Of
Revelstoke and Goldeu.
The Nelson Daily News says: J. P.
Forde, public works engineer for the
district, expressed bis keen regret
that Capt. Armstrong was severing
his connection witb the department,
as he had always been a vcry capable
and ellicient officer. Ou account, however, of tbe very small amount of
public works going on at present and
the fact that Capt. Armstrong is busily engaged in making arrangements
to serve his country in a much higher and more important capacity than
at present, his request to be allowed
to leave the government service at
the end of the month was acceded to.
In addition to his valuable services
to tho government, Capt. Armstrong
has always been a very hard worker
in any way in which he could serve
the city or country and it is pointed
out that when he leaves here he will
be much missed from the executive of
most of the local public service and
patriotic organizations. Particularly
will the boy scouts suffer, as Capt.
Armstrong has been an untiring scout
master and friend to the boys and
his example in offering to leave his
home and all his associations here to
supervise and carry out a larger undertaking In a far off land, is regarded as a splendid example for the
younger generation, who are hesitating as to where their duty lies, and
as an encouragement to them to enter" thc service of the King at this
time, when the assistance of every
available nan who can Join the colore is of the greatest value.

Vernon News: Nobody except some
of the very old timers of the district
ever expected to see such a long and
unbroken period of cold weather in
the Okanagan as we have experienced
since the first of January. The navigation of the Okanagan lake is for

Notes from the cTWines
Ore has been moving down the Utica at a Jiretty lively gait during tlle
winter, keeping one four-horse outfit
on the jump to handle it.
It is reported that the McCuno interests are contemplating continuing
the United long tunnel at Ainsworth
by means of hand drilling, pending
the resumption of an air supply from
the Coffee Creek compressor.
A number of empties were spotted
at Retallack this week to receive ore
from tbe Bell mine, and as soon as
the road is re-opened, cars will be
sent out regularly. The ore will go
to Oklahoma. The Hell has tho indications of becoming a noted high
grade zinc producer, and some claim
that it. will become a second Tr.iter-
state-Callahan.
economical working and tbe continuation of the main tunnel will open up
the big Superior vein, whose ore has
so far remained untouched. A few
men are working on the property
this winter, doing development on a
small scale. On account of so much
building and power development being carried on during the summer and
fall, expenditures considerably greater than under normal conditions were
incurred, and such expenditures had
to be largely met from ore sales.
With every passing day and week
the outlook for an extremely busy
summer In und around Kaslo and
throughout the Ainsworth and Slocan
mining districts grows increasingly
brighter. Many deals are on the hook
leases are being eagerly sought after
and it appears easier to interest outside' capital in leiiitimnte mining nro-
positions.
If the plans of Laidlaw, Incorporated, of Spokane, are realised, some
$50,000 will be raised for the Cork-
Province, tbe capital to be used in
the developing uf the holdings ol that
company, and to effect the necessary
improvements in tbe mill so as to
make possible a more satisfactory ore
concentration. Manager W. E. Zwicky
is mm satisfied, from his present
knowledge of the mine, and what has
been accomplished with limited capital in the face of many difficulties,
that the expenditure of the amount
named will render the Cork-Province
a paying proposition and create one
of the biggest mines in this section.
While the ore in sight on a level with
the present: main tunnel is a long way
from heirc exhausted, shaft sinking
must     he resorted to to Insure   more
M. J. Halpin, who was formerly interested in the Whitewater lease before that property was taken over by
John L, Rettallack & Co. and who
was in the grocery business in Vancouver after leaving Kaslo, has decided to again cast his lot in with the
silver-lead-zinc section and has gone
to work on the Crescent at Coffee
Creek, nnd will stay there pending
the return of spring, when he will
take a look around in an endeavor to
find a suitable leasing proposition.
E. Dedolpb has returned from Spokane, where he has succeeded in interesting G. Weaver Loper iu plans
for tbe construction of a zinc reduction plant along the lines tbat are
somewhat different from methods now
in use. A deal has just been closed
whereby D. K. May of Spokane, ou
behalf of himself and associates has
secured thc Wiuthrop and Butte claim
generally known as the Gibson group
located in the South Fork of Kaslo
creek and regarded as one ot the
most promising properties up th.t
way. The vendors are Harry Kla-
pach of Poplar, and Thco. Adams . f
Valleyford, Wash. The di'ai was put
through by J. M. Wolhert who has
been working on It a!' win.-T and
who is to have charge of Mr. May's
interests here. The Gibson had considerable development done on it in
the early days, but its zinc contents,
under the conditions then prevailing,
proved a handicap to profitable operation. A large quantity of ore, reported at nhout 150,000 tons is   said
to he Hocked out at the present time.
Apparently it will ultimately resolve
itself into a milling proposition,
though it is likely that careful sorting may produce a product that can
be handled profitably. It iB intended
to get things started at the mine just
as soon as conditions will allow, and
Messrs. May and Wolhert expected to
make a start this week for the property to size things up and lay out a
plan of campaign. An early move
will be tbe location of the camps in a
new     site, the present location being
, one     where slides are likely to cause
. trouble.
The Trail smelter is unique in that
it now produces relined lead aud silver; within a few weeks will be pro-
! duciug refined zinc, and soon thereafter reliu.'d copper. The old plant,
| consisting both of lead and copper
smelters, is being practically rebuilt
at tbe same time that copper converters are being installed uud the uew
zinc reduction works rushed to completion. The latter will be iu operation in less thun a month and making &0 tons ot electrolytic ziuc daily.
The work of constructing tbe copper
refinery will bu begun the moment the
zinc plant is completed. Eleven hundred men arc employed. Both tbe old
! and new plants recently have been
surrounded with fences, protected by
barbed wire and guarded by Canadian
troops.
F. Keller told a meeting of mining
I men aud bankers at Spokane that the
British Columbia and Granby smelting companies, iu the period of their
Operations, had paid $6,1516,00'!) in dividends.
The    Granby   company bas smelted
' about 11,000 tons of ore and thc British Columbia company 4,000,000 tons,
| said Mr   Keffer.   "The cost of mining
' and treatment has been about $9 a
ton, which means that not less than
$45,000,000 has been expended by these
two companies in their iterations. Of
this 20 per cent, has been spent    for
'coal and coke, 15 per cent for freight,
25     jier cent, for power and Bupplies,
. and in per cent, for labor. The most
of tbe supplies have been purchased in
Spokane, and the large part of the
money paid to laborers has come here
I also, as this is the recognised centre
for     the men who work in the mines
' of the region."

An ingenious arrangement is being
used by the French ia the hilly country of the Vosges, in order io transport their wounded. Cable lines are
swung over all the rough portions of
the journey and over places where it
is impossible to make a road. Special
red cross cars or trucks are used on
these wire lines, each truck carrying
one man and being long enough to
let him lie down in comfort while bc-1

Advantages of
Tank Swimming
Unlortunately we do not live in a
climate that permits of outdoor
swimming all the year around and
therefore if we wish to indulge in this
■healthy and very popular sport we
must devise some means so that we
can swim indoors. This is done by
the building of the "swimming tank"
and there is as much swimming done
these days in the swimming tank ae
there is done in the great outdoors
'.itself. All the large gymnasiums and
.as many of the smaller ones as can
manage it have swimming pools in
their equipment and it is one 01 the
most important departments in tbe
whole plant. The regulation length
for tanks is 75 feet and no championship swimming meets may be held
in a tank under this length. The water should be about 70 gegrees F and
the sides of the jiool white so that
the water is always transparent and
■rticles may be seen anywhere in the
water. The usual depth is about 7
feet at the deepest part and 4 feet at
the shallowest part, giving ample
room for diving and yet making it
possible for non-swimmers to enter
the water in safety.
Tank swimming has several advantages, It is open ior use all the
year round, night and day equally as
well. Tbe water is of uniform depth
and the bottom can always be seen.
In short conditions are always the
same and can be depended upon to
remain so. In open water swimming
the conditions are changeable, and
the reverse of the advantages of the
other are true.
While the open air swimming is by
the most preferable under fair conditions, and as far as possible meets
are held. in the open yet a great
many records have, been made and
nroken in the indoor tank. 01 course
indoor and outdoor swimming are
classed differently and there is quite
i e'.irTeience made in the times in
each class, on account of tlie turns
that have to be made in tank swim-
mine.
The indoor tank is the greatest help
to the popularization of swimming
that bas ever heen known. All our
fast swimmers do the greatest jiart
d their practicing in the tank and
teachers generally prefer to instruct
in the tank. The introduction of the
indoor swimming pool has made it
possible to have many more good
swimming teachers on hand nnd now
the teaching of swimming has advanced till it is about standard, and
the best strokes are learned first and
learned In the easiest way. The day
of the crawl stroke is now here and
every one learning to swim under
wise instruction learns this—the easiest of all strokes tn learn and t 3
use all tho time.

On Monday evening a picked team
ol married men bowled otl iu a, match
game against the single men. The
latter were short two of their line-up
Bezley and Somerville so substituted
Couling and McLeod. The total number nf pins counted a win and the result showed a loss to the single men

day or bo before the evening of the
game, at the last minute they were
unavoidably absent. This is tbe reason that they give for losing the two
games to the fast little single team
with scores of 21-6 and 21-14.
Following this game there was a
basketball game between the two
teams from the ladies class. The
game was won after much hard work
and excitement by the team captained by Miss Tannis Patrick, score 11
to 2.
The final item on tbe program was
a men's basketball game played by
two teams of the fastest men that
the city can produce. The game was
well played and under the new rules
Ueoks a little different from the old
style, being a faster and cleaner
game to both watch and play. Mr. K.
S Martin rrfereed the game in a
most efficient mantel and at the end
ut the game announced the score to
bi '. l-ll in favor ol the Whites, eap-
r, ii.' d  I t   Bent.ett.
The intervals between the basket
ball halves were very nicely tilled in
by the leaders and some .if tbe high
school boys who did some gymnastic
dencing and pyramid building very
nicely.
Undertakers Still
Undefeated
On Tuesday evening the regular volley ball games were played In the
gym. The first game wus between the
Dent House aud the Government. The
Government was unfortunate in hav-
ing two of their best players out of
town, but they tielded a team and
gave the Dent House a good run for
the game which was won by the
Pert House with sc. r,-s of 21 to 11
and -"• to 13, .be m'1!^ wer; '"ell
played by both sides but the Dent
House won on strength ,. lean:. .he
Government would have made a better showing if they had ....d nil tbeir
team in action.
The Becond game was betwe:n tie
Business Men am! the Undertakers.
The Undertakers bad only four ol
their regular team and tbe first game
they played very loosely, I! the Business men ever had a chance to win
over the Undertakers this was the
tune. ,is at i ne point thi scute was
1 to 4 in favor of them, but tbe
Undertakers woke :ip about that timt
and the Business Men went all to

i Th' :•■ ippears to be little doubt
that Youssoufl fzzedin, heir-apparent
:, the thr, ne ol Turkey. did noi com
mit suicide by opening a vein In his
arm with a pair . ', scissors .is the of -
fi ial announcement declared, hut that
he was murdered by the order il En
vet Pasha, and perhaps indeed by the
hand of the present dictator .if Tur-
k 'v fi r Enver Is \ I a nan who
> . . shrink from performing the act
himself. He miL'iit Indeed feel Bafei
in murdering the oriticc with bis own
blinds than In trusting the j.>i> tu
anyone elst The Prince'e ...ther, Abdul Azi:\ who reigned before Hamid
came to the tbrone, .- Bal I to
ee mmitted suicide by means of a pair
of scissors. In fact 'every deceased
ruin of Turkey that one can recall
mei a violent death. Often a Sultan
w.is killed by bit own brother, and
frequently all bis wives and odalisques
were also executed fo: fear that one
of them might hear a posthumous
child, which would have a claim upon
the throne,
Prince Youssoufl Izzedm suspected
I"! Bome time past that an attempt
upon bil life w.iuld be made, and he
took the precaution of writing Beveral
letters to friends, with instructions
.that thev were to be opened only in
|the event of his death. In these let-
| ters he declared that he surely would
be murdered by Enver Pasha, and
ti. ,i ,', waa likely that stories of his
BUlcide would he circulated. The
Prinre was killed primarily because
in wai ippoaed to Enver Pasha's I'd
icy. nnd especially because he believed Turkey was making a tremendous
mistake in entering the wnr in sup-
pori ol Germany, ..nd particularly as
the enemy ol her old ally, Creat
Britain: and, secondarily, because he
was her tee the thr.'iie. The present
Pultun is now |mst 70; his health i*
fe..hi,-, and he is virtually n prisoner.
That  he should  last  much longer     is
very improbable, and it was the pros-
; pect of YousBouff Izzedin being called
to the throne while the war was in
progress and probably trying to make
a separate peace for Turkey that
drove Enver Pasha to order bis death.
It is very doubtful whether, in view
of the fact that. Enver Pasha is     in
control of the army, and tha     thero |
are    man.  German troops in Turkey, j
Yousouff     Izzedin     could  have  withdrawn his country from the struggle;
but he would probably havc made the
attempt, and, at any rate, bis antag- i
onism    to     Enver Pasha would have
made    the    position of that dictator
much  more difficult than  it is      now j
with Mehmed, who does whatever   be'
is  ordered to do,  and  appears to be j
completely in the power of the Young
Turks.   Moreover,     Enver Pasha     is ]
aware that the majority of the Turks
are     opposed  to the war.   The     Old \
Turks are pro-British,     and  if      any
Strong man could have stood out and
appealed  to the real sentiment of the
Turkish people he might have brought,
about a  revolution,   in  which  the army might have joined.   The risk   was
not     worth running, and so Yousouft
Izzedin  was quietly  murdered.
\t the time of the coup d'etat
which removed Abdul Hamid from
the throge, and placed thc real powei in the hands of Enver Pasha and
the Young Turks, Youssoufl Izzedin
was friendly with the conspirators,
because, probably, the revolution
brought him one step nearer the
tl.rone; hut when it became apparent
that it was merely a worse sort of
autocracy than anything that bad existed under the old Sultan that En-
ver Pasha aimed at, when thc authority of the National Legislature and
the new Sultan was flouted, then
Youssoufl drew away from the leaders
of the Young Turks and became their
critic and opponent. He no doubt
perceived what would be his own fate
when he ascended the throne nnd was
obliged tei attempt to control thc re-j
volutionists. At this time he was by
no means pro-British, because, in the,
opinion of Mr. Cunliffe Owen, who J
writes in the New York Sun, he had
been bitterly disappointed in not re-!
reiving the Order of the Garter when
Ik visited London in 1910 to atten.l i
the coronation of King George V. He
was patriot enough, however, to see
that Turkey was making a tremend- j
,ius mistake in becoming a German!
ally, and shrewd enough to perceive
that Enver Pasha had been bribed by
German agents to drag Turkey into
the war. I
With  Youssoufl out of the way, Kn-
ver Pasha will have to deal with     a '
much     morp amenable heir-apparent, I
Vahid     Eddin,     who is the youngest
brothei  'ef the jiresent   Sultan. He Is
said     t'i     be a weak, dissipated and
contemptible sort of person, who wis,
so despised  by his elder brother,  Abdul, that he was given every liberty
during his lonz reign, and not    con-J
tir.ed  like Mehmed,  who,  it was fear-;
ed.  might engineer a revolution.   \M-
hid. on the contrary, was merely encouraged  to  dissipate,  with the     re-;
suit that now, at tha age of 5-5, he is I
an old man without strength of char-'
after,   and   even   without   intelligence-.
He  will prove an easy tool    in     the,
hands of Enver Pasha, unless the Iat-1
ter     concludes that he himself ought
"',<• the Sultan.   In which case
be     will  r,at have  more than  a hun-
dred persons t.. p.it out of the way.

To the Stoney Indi n, there ure

brand, which belongs to the white

wild game of the Rocky mountains—
whicli belongs to the Stoney. He usually chooses the easiest way of
rounding up bis wild cattle, lie kills
moose when yarded up in tbe river ;
bc exterminates whole bands of sheep
or elk whenever possible; he kills
game    regardless of age or sex    and
$55.SO     was made.   Thc rooms     were  hnrrlM or slaughters  it regardless ol
beautifully decorated with daffodils,
which gave to them a Charming and
spring-like ajipcarance. The culinary
and candy tables were sources of
great attraction. The ladies who
jionred tea were Mrs. Procunier, Mrs.
J. Hume. Mrs. Kincaid and Mrs. Lynns. They were ably assisted In their
I leasing duty by Mrs. Mortimer, Miss
i,. Urquhart nnd Miss Green. Presiding at the candy table were Mrs.
Holten and Mrs. Downs and at the
culinary table were Mrs. English, Mrs
Jolliffe and Mrs. R. Tapping. The

the most serious menace to thc wild
game of the Rockies and tho restriction of their operations is imperative.
Controlling the tribe is difficult. It.
