MINES, MHUILTURE AND
TIMBER- IN BIG BEND
The placer miners of the Big Bend
country are reticient as to the values
they tiro deriving,  but so far as can I
tie learned all are securing rich     re- '
turns and     have excellent prospects,
ways E. Trimble, who returned Irom
the     Big Bend after a trip  through
the district  taken in  connection with ;
the Bummer's work on    roads    and
trails     into the country.   A  distinct
revival in the interest tnken in     the .
mining  possibilities "f the Big Bend
ia noticeable  and  many agents of in-,
"vestors     are  going into tho country
■with the object of ascertaining    the ,
opportunities for investment and   development.
On their property on the McCullough creek, J. Shields, R. Aikens
and 1,. Marsaw have erected a saw-
■mitl driven by water power and with
p. capacity of 1000 feet a day. The
outfit is proving of much convenience
to the settlers. On their claims tun- j
neling is being driven under the old
workings with the object .>f striking
hed rock. The -haft is now 100 feet t
deep nnd 800 feet of tunnel have heen
driven.
J. C. Montgomery and W. B. Robertson who ire operating the claims
of the Coldstream Placer Mines syndicate on French creek have sunk a
shaft r,0 feet nleep and have driven 250
teet of     tunnel     Some o' the gravel
has proved very rich and the mine
has cxcejitiotially bright prospects.
A large hydraulic outfit is washing
on the old channel of French creek
on the claims ef A. Remillard and A.
Kitson.The water is being brought
from a 'one distnnce up the mountains but the plant is working satisfactorily and the amount of gold being obtained is said to le very con-
ulderahe,
A number of placer miners nre at
work on the bed rock ef one of the
old channels of French creek. They
are getting gold in paying quantities.
Not only is the Big Bend rich in
mineral and timber but its agricultural possibilities are surprising. One
of the best ranches he has seen in
the interior is the old Boyd ranch
now heing worked by J. West and
J. Wilcox at Forty Mile, says Mr.
Trimble. From 60 to V'1 acres are
cultivated and a splendid crop of
wheat, oats, hay and garden produce
is being harvested.
The suspension of the boat service
into the Big Bend owing to the burning of the steamrr Revelstoke has
made the need for a road apparent
and this stimmer a line has been run
from the end of the present wagon
road at Eight mile to Nineteen mile.
The road, it is expected, will be
built by the provincial government
next summer.
Former Policeman'
Prisoner in Germany
The following letter from Leo McKinnon hns been received by Thomas
Bain:
Somewhere in France,
May 14, 1915.
Dear Tom:
Received a parcel ol cigaretteB this
afternoon with your name and that
of H. Munro attached and I am writing immediately to thank you for
they arrived at a most fortunate
time.
I have been experiencing a lot of
■difficulty in getting parcels through,
nnd my smoking material had just
about run • -nt. a calamity that your
thoughtfulneaa averted.
We are not in a very fortttuate situation from which to write letters as
we are within a tew minutes walk of
the front line and in such case conditions are too unsettled for one to
he able to apply their minds to the
matter, and then too when one writes
for a short time with a pad on their
knee they develop a stiflnes> in all
their joints.
N'o doubt you hear from the boys
in the store what accounts of our
doings I am able to scribble ofl from
time to time and as the censor keeps
a close watch on ull correspondence
any account Of what wc have been j
doing or what we have Been when it
meets tbe requirements is apt to be;
like ecus  without salt.
All  the Kevelstoke boys seem  I
fariiiL-  first   rate since  the  miX-Up    in
which Cecil Brown was missing and I
had an  opportunity  of    seeing     anil
talking to tbem the other     day,    <i«
for the    tirst time since I havi
over here we were In the front
the same time.
i tee all cf the oi<i boys who c in
with the lir-t contingent and are still
here 'rom t'tue to time as they belong to the same battalion. We had
word the other day that Don Patterson who used to be in the police
force was a prlioifer in Germany. I
knew the Kalaer would hnve hard
link.
1  am enclosing a dipping from the
Exi«re'ss which tdis of tba dolnga  of

Sees Mighty Peaks
pn Big Bend Country
Robert Hollister Chapman of Washington, D. CM, who, for three years
was in charge of the topographic
■nap work on Vancouver Island, was
u gueBt of William K. Ealing this
week, at his St')uey Creek cottage,
says the Rossland Miner. Mr. Chapman, in Company with Howard Palmer of New London, Conn., both
members of the American Alpine
Club, have returned from a month's
trip in the Big Bend country. They
went for an outing and took the op-
portunity to make notes and a
sketch map of the upper end of the
Belkirka and the Gold range. Their
trip extended almost to the ferry on
the upper Columbia, near Canoe river, a distance of a hundred miles
north  of  Revelstoke.
The most surprising feature of the
trio was the larce number .if glac-
ciers in the northern end of the Sel-
kirks nnd in the whole of Gold range
as ohserved. Several of the lesser:
mountains were clmhed, although
Ueone of the bigger peaks cf the main
.iivide were reached during the time
at their disposal. A number of fine
mountain neaks and many of the
glaciers not found on any maps were
located and sketched and Mr. Chapman hopes, in some wny. to put the
data in such form ns will be available for those interested. Many old
placer workings were observed, and
prospectors ar" still in evidrnce. A

DR. CHOWN
VISITS CITY
General    Superintendent    of
Methodist Church Delivers
Patriotic Address
Dr. S. D. Chown, general superintendent of the Methodist church, arrived In the city . u Monday afternoon irom Salmon Arm and addressed a meeting in the Methodist church
uu Monday evening. He afterwards
left fur Nelson.
He waB given an informal reception
In     tlie     evening    at the Methodist
church whin  words oi  welcome   were
voiced by Mayor Foote,  0. F. Lindmark,  C. B.  Hume,  R.  Howson,    H.
.'Manning,     W. Bews and  A. F.  Lundell.   Dr.  Chown  responded  in a fervent, patriotic address  which ranged
over a wide field.   He referred to the
receut. Consecration  day and inciden-
i tally   mentioned his recent introduction to president Wilson,     who,     he
said, sho>Ys in deepening furrows the
; Wright of heavy responsibilities.   The
war is compelling the reorganization
of our thinking and is calling for     a
'higher type of christian life,   which
the church must meet or die. He gave
some pleasing reminiscenses of   himself aud exhibitid his medal as a vet-
! cran of the Fenian Raid.   The pastor,
Hev.  Lashley Hall invi;ed all present
i to make the occasion a Consecration
I day for a new start in the cause   of
'the church.
Dr. Chown has a son at Shornclifle
enroute to the front. He said that
the time haB come when every man
must justify to himseli aB to why he
is wearing civilian clothes instead of
khaki.
The audience was deeply appreciative of the doctor's visit and words.
Light refreshments were served by
the ladies. Dr. Chown left by Tuesday morning's southbound train.
This is Dr. Cbown's sixteenth visit
to tbe mountains and before LOiiiing
to Revelstoke he had heen visiting
his son who is ranching at Salmon
Arm. Another son, 17 yearB of age,
is now in Kngland having volunteered for service at. tbe front with the
■ontingent from Toronto university.
He is at present driving a motor
transport and expects to be employed at the front either as the driver
of a transport or of an ambulance.    |
In company with W. Bews and Rev.
Lashley Hall Dr. Chown went up
the automobile ror.d on Mount Revelstoke on Monday afternoon. The
scenery, he declared, was among the
best to he found in the mountains,
and Dr. Chcwn is convinced that
Revelstoke will in the near future become one of the most attractive and
best patroni'.ed of the western tourist centres. i
AUTHOR OF
USEFUL BOOK
i
Fernie Free PresE—The prospects
for a good hunting season look very
bright. Deer are very plentiful and
bear are beginning to become a nuis-'
hnce around the small farms. Harry
Gould saw two big timber wolves on
the road between Fernie and Morri-
sey last week.
James H. Sheahan   Publishes
Manual for Trackmen —
How to Line Curves
,lames H. Sheahan, general roadmaster of the Kevelstoke division of
the O.P.R., is the author ot a valuable work winch has recently heen
published and for which a large de-
I mand hns already manifested its-df
among trackmen. The Perfect Lining
Curve or Curve Lining Made Knsy is
the title of the work. It makes euch
trackman of ordinary intelligence his
oW'n curve liner, which is a long step
t iward making him master of bis
own trade, and making his work
easier, as he can make better riding
curves with less labor than by the
old way, and the railroad company
is. benefitted by having better riding
curves for less money than they
spent, in maintaining the poor riding
curves. All trackmen know that
when a curve is put in proper condition it has very little tendency to
lose its surface Une, guage or level,
or to wear the rail uneven or irregular, as is experienced with curves
that are not properly lined.
The lining of curves with a string
is not new by any m?ans. Any good
trackman should be able to line a
curve better with a string than without one, where he has no line stakes
though as he is unable to figure out
the curve on paper he often finds it
necessary to thr. >w the track back
and forth several times before he gets
thc curve uniform, if, in fact he is
ie hie to get it uniform at all. That
is what is done with Sheahan's book.
The act of figuring out curves on
paper is not new by any means, Mr.
Sheahan has simply reduced the figuring to a minimum, in order that the
ordinary trackman can figure out his
curves regardless of his technical education. Some of tb«3 best tr.icb.men
1 ave never had a chance to go to
school, and a great many foremen at
the present, time nre foreigners and
do well to learn to talk, read and
write the English language. The book
therefore caref.illy avoids all technical terms which might not be understood by this clnss of trackmen.
The book teaches
1. How to measure up a curve and
record the figures to be used by
yourself or others for figuring the
curve into proper line.
2. How to figure out a simple
curve hy the simplest possible method.
.1. How to figure out the spiral or
easement of curves.
4. How to comuotind curves when
necessary and still hnve good riding
curves.
5. How to cut rn'ls before lining
the curve if any cutting ls necessary.

WAGES TOO HIGH, SAYS MOSES
Moses B. Cotsworth, author of the
notorl 'us "Crisis In B. C.," pan pb
lei. has discovered another ground
I ir criticism of the McBride government, in a letter to a Vancouver
newspaper be complains that the gov
ernment la paying too hi b wa eafor
teams employed on provincial road
work, and by doing so ims Btiflened
the wages which he must pay when
hiring teams to develop some of his
own ri al i state holdings.
Moses is evidently of an economical turn of mind, and lik, many other
I iberal leaders, be appears to repaid
industrious s. tilers who add to their
earnings by occasionally working on
road ('■ instruction as "grafters." If
Mr. Cotsworth were a real settler on
a British Columbia ranch, instead of
a land speculator he would
probably realize that the wage
j ud by the government for the labor
employed upon public works is not
as excessive as he imaines.
The Ceist of living, the price
of horses and the cost of
horse feed in Uritish Columbia are
not   low,   anil   the  wages  paid  feu"    la-
bor and teams are necessarily higher
"ban     the rates in the old land     to
which  Mr.   Cotsworth  is accustomed
The governra nt has not considered
it to be its duty to drive the hardest
j   BSlble   bargain   with     thc   working
and   settler, so that Mr. Cots-
W >rth      and his friends  may  have an

THE STORM CENTRE
Toi.mlo Globe—It is possible that
the attitude of passive resistance adopted by Roumania may have been
inspired by Sir Kdward Grey, who
foresaw the depletion of Turkey's
war stores and knew that active participation of the Balkan states would
be necessary if thoy r.fused passage
'ii supplies. The policy, whatever its
origin, is a master stroke. It must
bring about, if jiersisted in, the
downfall of the Turkish power as
surely as would a march upon Constantinople. \nd the collapse of Turkey   will  result   in  a  very  great weak-
ening ol the Germanic powers. Russia. With all the arms and supplies
she needs pouring in through the Dardanelles, and with no batt'efront in
the Caucasus and Persia to dUtract
her itt intlon, would be alle to strike
hard and often In Galicia,i Poland and
Courland where for the time the
Germanic star is in the ascendant,
MM.day Roumania is the storm centre
.ef the w,,r. Her action, even more
than the Intervention of Italy, will
determine bow loin; it will last and
bow complete the collnpse of Turkey

GOOD  SCOUTS
Pentlcton   Herald—There is     something      vivid  about  the  Hoy  Scouts.
They bring back     flashes of boyhood
days when we took'a real interest in
a     real   life—when  we knew noth n;
about  collections aud bills and overdrafts     nnd     contracts, and so on—
when  the old swimming hole down at
the     creek     meant more to us than
merely     a      business    above   water.
Sum. how or other when a 1 oy    gets
Into    the    Scout movement he drops

sad to say, nre very noticca'le nowadays among  the youth  of our country.   The hundred young scouts   who
arc doing so noi ly  in th"ir work of
making Pentlcton ;oye'iis these days,
are a line     land.   They are a credit
ie, the communitiea they come from.
They are a shining example to    the

who    are     likely     enough employing
their spare time In pursuits far   less
wholesome, but  who would be   great

New Wharf Started at
Halcyon Hot Springs
Work was started last week on the
new wharf at Halcyon. The new-
wharf will be ten feet further out
than the present one. This will give
sufficient depth to keep it afloat at
low water. The old wharf was both
inconvenient and d..n_erous during
the winter months when it was
grounded with an acute slant, the
eierk being only a few inch s above
the water and frequently covered
with ice. The deck of the new one
will be four feet above water. The
weerk is being supervised by Capt. F.
IM Armstrong, with G. H. Gardner,
Vikusp,  as foreman.

Mining Initatry Soon
on Better Basis
R. F. Green, M. P., yesterday, expressed the opinion that one outcome ol the war which would likely
tave a very important bearing upon
the mining industry was the anticipated early decision on the part of
the Federal government to take definite steps to utilize for war purposes
the copper, zinc and lead products ol
British Columbia.
In respect to the rumors that have
been afloat for some time that the
government contemplated the estuo-
Ushment ol a copper and sine refining
plant on the coast, Mr. Green Btaced
he was aware that various representations had been made to Ottawa
in this regard, bul as yet no deci-
i on bad been reached in the matter.
, ol. Carnegie, of the shell commie-
Which visited the province a
lew months ago, bas heen in Ottawa
i ivlslng the government as to what
„,ti,.„ 4i..uld be taken in British
C ■lumbia so as to utilize the mining
ces fe r the purpose of the Bri-
tuh war office. H is assumed that
• , decision reached will very largely
di pend upon his advice.
In respect to the establishment of
a refinery ln Uritish Columbia, Mr.
■ reen Stated that mining operators
at Trail, and another group at Quebec, had been al Ottawa in connec
tion .nth tb- project, bul the details
I. ive ie.t yt been decided upon. Mr.
Qreen is of the opinion that instead
of the government itself establishing
a refinery, the problem will probably
Wort out on the basis ot a bonus being given to those who undertake
che establishment of such facilities,
or, in lieu thereof, a bonus upon the
finished product.
"Of one thine I am certain," said
Mr. Green, "and that Is that the
federal government is fully determined to co-operate along the most
generous lines with the experts sent
•ei  by the British w.n  office to study
.nihilities ol this province furnishing  needed  mineral  product!     In

BULLETIN ON SWINE RAISING
The second edition of bulletin No.
IT of the federal live stock branch,
entitled Swine Husbandry in Canada,
has been issued and may be had on
application' to the publications
branch of thc department of agriculture at Ottawa. The interest in
swine raising stimulated, no doubt
by the high values of pork products,
made such a demand for information
on this subject that the first edition
printed last year was quickly exhausted. This edition brings up to date
statistics with respect to pedigree,
registration and the trade in h.jg
products. It is shown that the total
exports for the fiscal year ending
March     31,     1915,  am mnted to 1G6»-
18,519 pounds as against 27,561,140
pounds the previous year. This bulletin covers the whole field of swine
raising giving the results of official
experiments as well as the practices
of successful farmer swine raisers. An
•.uteresting section describes the system to feeding hogs in Denmark,
where comi inations of food are pre-
pared according to their food units
in which one pound of grain,—wheat,
harley. peas, corn, etc.—constitutes
one food unit which is equal to S
pound of mangels, 4 pound boiled potatoes, 5 pound alfalfa, c pound of
skim milk or 12 pounds nf whey. It
Is sh 'wn th.it the diet is varied in
n definite way for pigs of different
ages.
Charged With Murder:
Teacher Hear Revelstoke
Charged with having murdered her
one day old child by deliberately suf-
b eating it as it lay on her breast at
the General hospital on July 6, a
woman, around whose person there is
considerable mystery, but whose
name is said to be Jessie Kimball, a
school teacher employed near Revelstoke, appeared in the police court in
Vancouver on Thursday nnd was remanded until Tuesday on the application of her counsel, Mr. I. I. Rub-
inowitz. ,
Little is known of the young woman, who is not much more than a
girl, and looked very youthful as she
stood behind the bars in the prisoner's lock at the police court. On the
early morning ol July 5th she stumbled Into the admitting oilice at the
General hospital and explained her
condition. She was placed in a semi
1 ublic ward and two hours later a
child   was   born.
There wis nothing in the appear-
nnce iei the girl to excite suspicion,
ind the following day the infant was
given to her to nurse. The nurses in
the ward did not suspect anything
wrong, but when, half an hour later,
one of them went to take the baby
up again it was dead, and its face
bad already  assumed a  purple hue.
An Inquest was held, and it was
found that the little one had died of
suffocation. A post mortem esprrnn-
ation on the body, it is said, did not
invral the presence of food in the
stomach.
The coroner was not satisfied that
the child had died ns a result of en
accident such as sometimes occurs
when a young mother first undertakes
to nurse her offspring. The matter
was laid before the Attorney-General's department and the police, who
decided to further investigate the
case, and ns she left the hospital on
Tuesday afternoon detectives McArthur and Imlah placed her under ar-
lest.
The girl is very uncommunicative
iegarding her antecedents, and there
is some doubt as to Jissie Kimball
being her real name. She is apparently without friends in the city. It
is stated that before coming to Rev-
r]stoke she lived at Kamloops. She
came originally from Montreal.

Sir Sanford Fleming was one of
the greatest engineers in the world;
and of no ritizen had Canada a right
to 1 e more proud. He built the Intercolonial; h.' planned the O.P.R.,
and was in charge i f its construction in the pioneer stages. He was
a great Imperialist, a philaiitliiop-
:.-t, md a scientist whose merits had
been honored by a score of foreign
societies. He passes from the stage
at 88 leaving behind him omy two
others wno'might be considered in
point "f years and public service his
cont mporaries, namtly, Sir Charles
i ipper, .vho recently celebrated bis
'Uh birthday, and Sir Mackenzie
Bo well, who is ii. For suae years
j.ast Sir Sandford Ims bem retired
from active pursuits. The evening ol
his .days has been passed in homer
and plenty, and few living
men had the satisfaction of looking
back upon a more uselul public carter, upon more great things accotn
plished, and few are the Canadians
i memory will be held in more
greatful memory.
THE YOUNG    SCOTCH ENGINEER.
Sir Sandford Fleming, like ni
famous     Canadian whose career  ran
irallel t. ■ his, and who waa vitally
ti.! In b s acl ■• vi n i nta, the
iate Lord Strathcoip, was bom In
Scotland. It is snd tbat his father
bad great mechanical skill, and tbat
the =on when yet a boy, showed aa
ordinary aptitude for mathematics. Leaving school at the age ol
fourteen, he was articled as a stu
dent of surveying and engineering,
and after four years' study emigrated to Canada, taking up his ■ residence in this city. It was somi
time before he had an opportunity ol
revealing his very remarkable iilts;
and in the meantime b applied himself diligently to his profMSion. But
.ven   tlnn.   when  he  h  d   all   his    life
before    him,    and when the problem
; earning     bis daily bread was     nn
ever present  one   he found time    to
■-.■ ••• t.e the general welfare ol   his
on.   He    becami     aai i i
>eith the Mechanics Institute and later on te.nl>: a leading pari  In organ
u'in? the Canadian Institute.
HIS MERITS QUICKLY DISCOVERED.
' '■"'     he nvy Me p.ld to have

'  Huron rond.   Tn thi= position he
i'i I '
s;rating his     unusual abilities   which
were quickly recognized, and his pro-!
motion  was rapid.   It was not   long
until news of his skill and conscicn-
nousness was spread abroad, aud he
had    several    oflera from other railways.   In 1S63 tbc     inhabitants    of
Red River district were anxious to establish railroad communication with
Eastern (Minada,  and apptnled to the
Uritish authorities in this connection.
They chose  Sandford Fleming  to lay
their case hefore the Colonial  Secre-;
tary,     and though  he failed  immediately in his object, the young engineer     was admitted   to have jtlBl
the confidence imposed in him.   Up I
1 is return  from  England the     Intercolonial     project     had become a live
political question, and it  waa decided that the matter sh lUld  be C< Mid-
cred    by a commission of engineers,
one appointed by Canada, one
Maritime provinces,   and  one  by   the
imperial government.
BUILDER OF INTERCOLONIAL
Canada renominated   Fleming,   the
Maritime provinces could think of no
nne so well qualified, and announced
'heir willlngn<eas to accept him,   nnd
