Major de Martin—Worst Tragedy Yet to Come
Belgian King Takes Soldier's Place
If the audience to hear Major de
Martin in the Methodist church LaBt

tion of Belgium better understood,
was achieved, The council adjourned
to bear .the lecture und were well
lepaid, Mayor Koote occupying the
chair.
The gallant major spoke as a
soldier. He wears the ribbon Corresponding to the Victoria Cross.
The reason ammunition is short, be
said, is because of tlie quantity used.
More was used in two .lays over Hill

men were killed at one battle, Ypres,
than in all the American civil war.
England today is producing Hi times
as much ammunition as at the beginning e,f the wai. France eight
times. Never before in the history of
the world was there anything like it,

changed since the war. This will open
the way int.' Qermany and to Kssen.
Germany has not seized the Scheldt
or declared war on Holland, aud has
even apologised l.i- sinking vessels.
Spcal'.ing aa a Belgian it is better
for America to keep mi', although
she should have taken a moral stand
against thc atrocites. Belgian supplies would st.'|e if America entered

IS GROWING
Interview With Lieutenant Governor Barnaul, Chairman
uf Provincial brancn
In   relation    lo  its   operations      in
British Columbia His Honor Lieutenant-Governor Barnard, chairman ui
the provincial brancn of the Canadian Patriotic fund, upon being interviewed said: ■,
"The iimil was organized shortly
ait.i the war broke out, at the in-
, lame  "I   His   Royal   Highness,      the
Puke "i Connaugbt, governor-general,
iiu jeets being set lortb In an appeal by His Royal Highness to create
n fund for the relief of the dependents .ef "in urave soldiers who volunteered Ior active service at home
nml abroad,
"in tins province a provincial
branch was organizod and an active
campaign for lhe collection of funds
was commenced. Branches were formed throughout the province, with col-
U-ctlng and relief committees.
••Its ictivitles and the knowledge
that patriotic Canadians would see
that the dependents of those fighting
our battles would be cared for was
nn doubt an incentive to recruiting,
tnid the enlistment of married men
for overseas service was thereby cn-
couraged,
"Although the fund is u national
one, with its head oilice at Ottawa,
still it has been the effort to have
each province collect within its boundaries sufficient to furnish its proportion ol the amount required to
lueel the demands of the dependents
of tlnise volunteering irom the province.
"In this respect Uritish Co lumbia
has so far been successful, but should
tbe wur last, as it may, for a longer
period than at first contemplated,
more money will he required in order
to maintain our proportion of cou-
tributions.
Amounts Collected.
"Where   large   contributions   have
been made  by    banking,  railway,   insurance and other corporations operating throughout the   Dominion,    a
share of the amount has  been credited as having  heen     collected  within
the  province,   but  this figure  has not

• "ment  .,f R.H,  Swinerton,   Its
le.iiiirary secretary, who has practically devoted the whole "f bis valuable time to its work wlthoul re
muneration, and has provided an otliee wlthoul charge, the expenses,
therefore, being limited to rust ol
printing, stationery, light, fuel and
two assistants In al! l°ss than
$9,500 (01   -line months of operation.
"The expenses connected with the
administration ol tbe provincial
branch for eight months have been
$796,51, under the able supervision ol
W.J. Gnoepel, deputy minister of finance, who is honorary secretary. The
above sum, however, dues not include postage and stationery, the
,vork of the office being carried on at
Room .N'o. 7, parliament buildings,
und the cost of postage and stationery being borne by the provincial
government.
■•The s'cretary of the fund ut headquarters, Sir Herbert Ames,
maintains thai the expenses of administering the fund throughout Canada has heen covered hy the interest
allowed by the banks upon the balances on deposit.
New Subscribers Wanted.
"All branches are being urged to
try and secure new subscribers. A
comparatively small proportion ol
ihe community are contributing to
this very important and necessary
fund.
"Si.me sections of the province,
from which one would expect good
subscriptions have responded very
poorly, whereas other and poorer districts have come forward nobly.
"Likewise with individuals, those
who can afford it hest are giving the
least, and many who can ill afford it
are straining their resources to make
their monthly contributions. All hon-
or to them. .Many of those loudest in
their expression of patriotism are
the last to put fervid loyalty to any
practical test.
"in this province, as elsewhere
throughout the empire everyone can
help by placing their services at the
disposal of some cnaritable or pat-
i loi Ic organization.
"I must md forget to give credit
to the Daughters of the Empire and
■ ther ladies who have been good
enough tn devote a great deal of their
time to rendering valuable service mi
relief committees. Mention should al-
so be made of the work being performed by members on committees of
the branch associations throughout
the province, secretarial and other
work being done, in the majority of
cases, without any remuneration
whatsoever, as well as a great deal
if time given by members of the
committee to  investigate claims.
"The figures quoted above are approximately correct, but each organization and branch has its own auditors for the protection ol subscribers,
and the whole is again subject to
..inlet at Ottawa, under the direction
nf the minister of finance, the Hon.
UT.   White."
Zinc Ores Will Be
Refined in Province
To induce the Dominion government to take some immediate action
leading to the establishment in Uritish ( olumbla of facilities for tb*
refinement of zinc ores waa oue of
the chief missions of R.F. Qreen, M.-
P„ to Ottawa recently. He leporta
that his business was successfully
concluded. Negotiations now ure under way to give elfect to his suggestion. Mr. Green points out thut,
while the primary object iH to mukc
il possible for the province to turn
its immense resources in copper and
zinc of practical value to the Bin-
pire in the manufacture of munitions
of war, the indirect result will he
an important, stimulus to the mining
industry of the weBt.
"There are two zinc refining processes
that I know of in the province," said
Mr. Qreen. "One of these is at Trail,
and I believe that there is another
known at the 'French process.' "
While this was all, as far as hiB personal knowledge went definitely, he
thought there were others. The government was prepared to consider
them all, the idea heing to get quick
action. It wus hoped to accelerate
the refinement of zinc, as well as copper, to the point where it may, he
turned over to the factories engaged
in tbc production of rille, machine
gun and other brass cartridges ready
ior use. «
Mr. Creen pointed out that anything that the federal authorities did
along such a line could not fail but
be of great benefit to those interested in British Columbia mines. Many
in "pert ies had been handicapped he-
cause their ores huve carried a large
jiercentage of zinc, as a result of
which the smelters have exacted penalties. With conditions changed as
proposed this metal will be paid for,
which, unquestionably, will make
inch a radical difference that it waB
probable that many enterprises, inactive for some time, will he able to
open up, and while operating profitably produce something of material
assistance to the country in the present crisis.

Great activity prevails around the
Galena Farm, at Silverton, where a
loo-ton concentrator is In   course of
erection. The Galena Farm was Jiond-
ed by Patsy dark, of Spokane, a
abort time before his death, and his
■on is now carrying on the development and other work incidental to
(•lacing the property on u shipping
Ijasis. The property was secured by
the Clark interests from A. W. McCune, of Salt Lake City, who owned
it for a number of years.
01 the zinc shippers of this district
the Hewitt is probably the most for-
tunate, as that property is said to
have a Contract with the Kmpire
Zinc which provides for the handling
of the Hewitt zinc out put until the
year 1917. The Surprise has a contact also, but it expires at the end
of the present year. The contract
held by the Rambler-Cariboo is reported to have expired only recently.
Because .if being shipped ore in excess of rapacity the American smelters are not buying any more in this
field unless forced to do so by a contract.
One of the promising properties
near Ferguson is the I.X.L. group,
owned by Otto E. Olson and Charlie
Olson. The group consists of two
claims situated on Brown creek, and
is an extension of the Morning Star.
Average assays give values of IJ oz.
in gold; 40 oz. silver and 34 per cent
lead. The main development consists
of 100 feet of drift on thc vein, and
there  is one  foot of  ore  showing     in
the face, at a vertical depth beneath
tho surface of 1U0 feet. Eight or nine
hundred feet of trail is reijuired to
connect with the Brown creek trail,
which lends over the summit. From
tho summit the ore can be rnwhided
to Trout Lake, sixl or seven miles distant.
A contract has been let V> J.J. Far

A deal waa completed on Monday,

of claims to J.I'M Blawaon and J. M.
Wolhert, of Spokane, with whom are
associated as purchasers, L.H. Borop
of Jamaica, Iowa, and H. Park of
Kaslo. The property is situated
about, seven miles up the South I'M irk
of Kailo creek, and is in the neighborhood of the Flint and Martin
groups. One of the claims is said to
have a ten inch showing of hurli trade
galena, and the new owners are planning upon commencing development
forthwith, and may possibly ship ore
during the summer. Messrs Park and
Wolhert have heen working on the
preliminary arrangements for the
deal during the past few weeks. Mr.
Borop will be in charge of work at
the mine.
For over two weeks the British Columbia Copper company has had a
large force of mechanics getting their
Greenwood smelter ready to blow iu.
About July 15 the big furnace will
be blown in. as the Mother Lode
mine will not be ready to ship before that time. Coke is already on
the way from Coleman, and it requires 10O tons daily to feed the big
furnace. The company will handle
custom ores suitable for their smelter from any part of the country.
Men are being put to work at the
Lone Star mine. The ore from that
mine will be sorted and trammed to
Boundary Falls. The railroad will
huul the ore from the Falls to the
smelter, a distance of three miles.
At the Mother Lode mine the hoist
is heing changed from one side of the
shaft to the other, in order to get at
thc rich ore which lies just beneath
the two hoists. It will take about
two weeks time to put the hoist and
mine in condition for shipping ore.
Upwards of 7.i men will bc employed
at this mine at the beginning, auJ 50
at the smelter. At Copper mountain,
near Princeton, the company has 33
men and three diamond drills working, and more ore is being constantly found at that great property.

'Premier Does Good Work for
Province    in   London —
Financial Situation
in excellent health and spirits, Bir
Richard  McBride,  who has  been   ab-
,1 nt from the province {or over three
months, the major portion ol watch
was spent in London, returned to
\ ictoria on Sunday morning. Interviewed, Sir Richard suid
"On returning tee Canada alter
He.me time spent In England and
France, 1 huve thc conviction that
the people here, s.i far removed ns
they are from the actual scene of
hostilities, have but small appreciation of how serious is the situation
in respeot to the war. NMit that I
would Ior a moment suggest  that tbe
lutcome of the struggle is In doubt,
for it is a..t; Miit tbe masses i.f the
people, especially in the overseas
!> iminions, h we not ye1 i een fully
impregnate with the understanding
that the wry fate ol the empire, and
all that is Implied in the term Uritish liberty, are at ntake, and that be-
i re victory will perch upon the banners ofthe allies tbe whole sir. 11,4th
nnd resource of the manhood of the
empire must I e thrown into the scale.
"My friends of the opposition press
.during my absence, have, lam told,
been good enough tu remind me that
I could have better employed my
time nt h : e. During the past 12
years it bas been my privilege to
take some part in matters having to
■Au with the il vtlo] mi al of my native province, as ah integral part ol
the British empire, aud 1 am afraid
that if 1 had listened to the advice of
my friends of tbe opposition press,
but little would have been accomplished. At the proper time and In the
proper place I will explain the raanj
matters which engaged my attention
while In Europe—matters iu which
the Interests eef this province are
vitally and immediately concerned—
but In the n eantime 1 desire to assure my friends and the country that
1 was not unmindful of this duty, nor
unsuccessful  In my eflorts.
The Tin Mer Industry.
"For Instance, 1 was privileged   to
accomplish  something  which    is cal-
• 1 iltion     of
the timber industry of the province.
I was able, by direct contact with
the Imperial government and officials
of the leading railway companies, to
point out the advantages from an
imperial point of view of opening direct dings with the local manufacturers of timber products. On my
irrival in  England 1 f. .und that   the
admiralty was In need of large de-
menslon timber and that many orders had leen placed through American agents for consignments from the
Puget Soui <\ country, and that British (.'1'lumbia was at a distinct disadvantage in respect to transportation facilities.
"Notwithstanding this situation,
by dint nf pressure exerted by my-
-e'.f. U.K. v. icMiUan, tradi
sioner, and through the j.ood offli a
of Sir George Perley, acting liigb
commissioner, who was most kind
rind helpful on all occasions, a mea-
•• of recognition was secured tor
the British Columbia industry which
it bad hitherto not enjoyed, In respect to the matter of railway timber
supplies, i met Beveral of the leading
railway men and lumber merchants,
and discussed the ability of British
• lumbia to supply ties and lumber
for general railway purposes. At pre-
II ll there is a great dearth of railway timber in the British isles owing to the Baltic being closed, and
up to the present this shortage has
been made up  m    part     by lm|
ma from the southern states. It is
simply a matter of working out a
satisfactory transportation arrangement, when we shall take a leading
part in furnishing Great Britain with
her timber requirements.
"While in Paris I conferred with
Commissioner Roy in reapect to the
lumber situation In France, and here
r.gain I found the government and
railway companies badly in need of
supplies, and was able to lay the
ground-work for shipments there.
Securing Interned Ships.
"The great problem Is that of
transportnti'ui. 1 conferred with representatives of the government and
the board of trade in respect to the
ijuestii.il of the possible utilization
of interned ships, and to some extent
1 was successful, one interned vessel
being placed at mir disposal, This
craft, winch was formerly stationed
at Falkland Islands, will soon be In
these waters to take on a shipment
of large dimension timber for the
Lome government. The need for making un arrangement ol this kind was
'" greal that I found it necessnry to
undertake that the province should
take over the vessel, so that we may
hi cure a recognition for our timber
products Id the old innd which has
heretofore been lacking,
"In my various conferences with
the government officials and the leading brokers, 1 did not fail to impress
upon them the fact that great sums
of British capital were invested 111
British Columbia, and that good
business policy demanded that recognition should be given to this section of the empire whenever our products were required, even if the arrangements suggested some slight
temporary disadvantage iu a commercial wny, rather than Bend money
outside the British  Dominions.
"London is thronged with agents
representing timber interests in the
United states, and it will undoubtedly require an aggressive and courageous policy on our part to secure the
business to which we are entitled.
"The  prospects  for increasing   tlie
markets for the products of our fish
cries are excel Hut. The price
meats in the British Isles is rising
i.nd we should not neglect the op
portunity to Increase our exports to
England of cured and canned, as w ll
as fresh fish. The tremendous naval
activities in home Waters have not
helped the fishing industry there, and
1 pointed oiit that there was n 1
section of the empire which cot
more to Increase Great Britain's food
supplies than British Columbia. 1
took the matter uji directly w th
the admiralty and the war office, and
received assurance that British Columbia would be given full recognition in this regard. I found tbat at
the admiralty the standard product
was Alaska salmon, and I took occasion to point out that our fish was
as good, if not better.
Market for Fruit.
"With regard to the market for our
fruit. I was enabled to get 111 touch
with Henry Isaucs, a 1 rotber of the
iord chief justice, one of the leading
fruit men of Great Britain, and we
discussed at length the difficulties of
getting fruit In Fngland. Mr. Isaacs
is a practical man and has a thorough
grasp of the subject and although in
the past we sent some small
ments to England, we really did not
reach the world's metropolis with
out fruit in any comprehensive way.
1 an* very hopeful tbat with co-operation of such men as Mr. Isaacs we
shall now secure a much readier market for our fruit  than ever  before.
■ In respect to the question of increased metal production, 1 took up
with tbe imperial government and
the federal members of uttawa the
necessity of governmental activity
along tbe line of encouraging increased production at mines which produce material essential at this time.
1 anticipate that the Dominion government will take immediate steps
in this direction and that this will
be followed by a policy of co-operation by the imperial  authorities.
"While in England, 1 found much
interest heing taken iu tlie question
of land settlement. especially in
vie'V of tho new problems arising
from the war. I conferred with many
important committees whicli have
been formed to deal with the matter
of what to do with the ex-soldiers after the termination of hostilities,
and I found the opinion to prevail
that British Columbia would secure a
arge addition to its population. In
particular, however, I was greatly
impressed with the proposals of one
of these committees to have some
plan of land settlement by sold.ers
in British Columbia after the war is
over. Many of the soldiers will have
jiensions and thus be cble to make
£, fair start on the land; all of them
will be of excellent physique and admirably adapted for farm life. I
|ieimt"d out to these committees that
there were many attractive portions
of the province. where land settlement of this kind could be successfully carried on, but advised tbat a
delegation should be sent out here to
I "ik over the sltuati :,. 11 is bight}
probable that in the near future we
Shall see great activity in this direction.
Financial Situation.
"As to the financial situation, 1
f'liind among bankers universal confidence in the future of British Columbia. Compared with the other
provinces of the Dominion we rank
very well indeed in this respect. London, where all eiur money comes from
for development purposes, knows all
about our magnificent resources, and
expresses confidence in our successful
management of them. I w.i? much encouraged to eet many inquiries as to
the opportunities for further investments in this province.
"With regard to the future of British Columbia generally, apart from ;
the fortunes of war, with the new
railway lines approaching completion
it is recognised abroad that the province is now in a position to expand
beyond anything achieved in the
;ast. The facilities fe.r trans]
tion of freight and the opportunities
for bind settlement was never
good, and the great development
schemes which were initiated ln the
1 1-1 are bound to bear good fruit.
By September the Kettle Valley line
and the main line ..f the Canadian
Northern Pacific railway will be in
o|icratlon,  and  these,  with the     Ta-
cinc Great Eastern, the Grand Trunk
'lacific and the Canadian Pacific railway will provide a system of railway transportation unrivalled in any
province in Canada.
"I may sum up my conception of
tbe present situation and outlook by
saying that there is no part of the
empire to which the people of Europe
are looking with greater expectancy
than British Columbia. When the war
is over, no country can anticipate
greater development than this province; and my conviction in this respect has been emphasized aB a result
of my trip and the opportunities I
had of conferring witb leading financial, business and industrial people
in  the old  land."
j Douglas Fir lies
Approved in Indie
I! n. W.R. Ross has received information from the agent general for
British Columbia to the effect that
the cargo of 160,000 creosoted Douglas fir ties shipped to India to the
order 'if the Bengal and North-Western railway last fall per the steamship "Queen Helena" have arrived,
and have given full satisfactian.
The ti a re described in the words
of the agents in India as being "an
lell-round good lot, well cut, of full
dimensions and well creosoted."
The agent general goes on to say
that he has been requested to convey the thanks of the railway board
in London to the government of British Columbia for undertaking the inspection and despatch of the ties.
It Will be remembered that this
order was secured for the province as
a result of strenuous efforts on the
j'art of the minister of lands, and
the agent general in co-operation
with the Canadian trade commissioner, in London, the railway corn-
ship- pany stipulating that the British Columbia government undertake the inspection of the ties before shipment.
Further orders for the Indian railways were in prospect but the lack of
tonnaire has caused them to be held
in abeyance; there is every hope however that when the shipping offers,
those orders will be placed, the success 'if the trial order leading naturally to further  business.

"Over three hundred  men have   re- j
cruited here up to     date,    more     in I
sight,  and all have been removed to j
other places     for     training' notwithstanding fact that wc- havc excellent I
facilities here for that     purpose     as !
well  as  capable  instructors.  Citizens j
feel very strongly that this place   is I
not being fairly treated, but is being j
discriminated      against in favor     of
\>nion and  Kamloops. Cannot    some
arrangements  be made to  have  camp
of say 5'm; established here for    pre- '
liminary     training.     Major  General \
Hughes  when  here     made statement I
that he saw no reason why troops recruited here should not receive    preliminary training here."

The French chamber of deputies has
adopted a measure to burn unidentified bodiee at the front, and to bury
these which had been identified. The
deputy who proposed the measure
measure said the matter was urgent
on account of the heat, the military

against incineration and cited precedents established in other warp.

The rules,  which were    designed     by !

square measure tables are printed as

as follows:
Six rules by a wise ruler:
