by heing the only member of the
Reichstag who voted against a new

message to British Socialists, in
which he calls upon the workers of
the world to unite in a war against
the war. This communication is published in a newspaper called The

this war, and he says that among
Qerman workers there is a greater

erally has been supposed.

For the second time in three years
a complete counterfeiting plant was
discovered in the Missouri state penitentiary last week. William Bradon,
serviug a  nve-ycar  term  for forgery,
j occupied the cell in which were found
four molds and dies for making spur-
! ious half dollars, all other accessories for the presses and 30 pieces of
the finished product. The complaint
of a convict who had received one
of the counterfeit half dollars at his
grocery booth Christroas Day led to
the discovery.
It ia not generally known that the
French manufacturers of cigarette papers now practically supply the entire world, the output of Austria and
Italy being 'insignificant. Thcre is probably not more than one person in a
hundred who knows thut rice paper,
in which the tobacco is wrapped, has
nothing to do with rice, but is made
from the membranes of thc breadfruit tree, or, more commonly of
fine new trimmings of Bax and hemp.
So 'ight is this paper that five bun

weigh un  ounce.

British forces have occupied Bouain
ville, the largest, of the Solomn Islands. It was announced in Melbourne
last week, that the British 6flag had
been hoisted over the islands on December 9. The Solomon Islands lie to
the southeast of the Bismarck Archipelago. On September 11, tbe British
Pacific fleet occupied Herbershohe,
the seat of government of the Bis-
marcb Archipelago, and of these
members of the Solomn group under
German control, including Bougainville. Several of the Solomon islands
are British possessions, but Bougainville since 1899 has been held by
Germany. This island is nearly 140

The fisheries department ut Ottawa

of the settlers in the west, through
the special permits that have been
sought to enable them to fish iu the
northern lakes. Since there is no market for furs thc Indians, in some
parts, havc sought to make a living
by fishing. Some of the northern Battlers, and a certain number of men
who were out of work in the cities,
have followed the same course, and
the government has granted the application wherever it wns feasible to
do bo. The consumption of tish in thc

President Wilson   has appealed     to
American  shipperB of non-contraband 1
goods,  such as cotton,  not to allow
their cargncs to bc mixed with    con- j
traband articles.    The  United States
government   could     deal    confidently
with the difficulties which had arisen i
in the treatment of American     commerce by Great Britain only if   eup- j

protesting at  length  against the British policy of prolonged detensions of
cargoes and other interference     with
Americnn trade.

proudly guarding tho town of Revelstoke, and the Columbia river flowing
steadily onward in its majestical
course.—Bernudine Bunnell.
The first mark on tho landscape
that catches thc traveller's cyo as he
enters Into thc city of Rovclstoko is
Mount Begbie.
In the clear evening twilight Its
rugiged outline is a spoctaclo $>f wonder and grandeur. Tho last rays of
the sun aro streaming on its lco and
snow, lighting up tho forests and
creeks to one great picture of magnificence. Tho rays becomo softer and
softer and at last tho mountain is
hid in darkness.
The faint uncertain light of the
rising moon quickly raised it from
its slumber, nnd once again the
mountain is covered with light. Tho
faint light glimmering on the snow
makes the scene like a fairy view.
In summer the mountain, with tho
exception of tho glacier is coverod
with the carpet of green verdure, but
in the winter the rising sun shines
on a dreary covering of snow.
The scene   from   the   mountain    is
magnificent.  On one side is tho    city
of  Revelstoke  diminished   to a     toy
box with thc smoke    of   houses und
trains curling    lazily  upwards.  Further to thc left is thc Columbia flow-
ling slowly through the   hills   to the
I foot of thc mountain, where, because
I of thc green verdure it is lost     from
our sight.  Then  it comes again     to
our    view      and      gradually    is loBt
among the foot hills. This mound   of
ice and verdure is the most picturesque spot in this district.—Oscar Lundell.

Notes from the oMines
The B. C. Oil Company Limited, of
Vancouver has resumed drilling at
Atard Bay, on the west coast of Graham Island.
The Northern Oil Company Limitod
of Vancouver proposes to start drilling operations on its holdings on
Graham Island ln March next.
C. S. Meek, of Vancouver, hns organized in Seattle a company to
drill for oil in the State of Washington and at Abbotsford, on the British   Columbia side.
Seven teams are at present employed in hauling ore from the
I'nion mine in Gloucester to Lynch
Creok. Regular shipments are made
from that point to the Granby and
Trail  smelters.
R. A. Brown is engaged in hauling
the machinery which he purchased
from the owners of the Rathmullen
mine some years ago from that property to his Volcanic mine. When
tbe machinery is installed on that
property he will resume work on tho
tunnel, which is now in about 900
feet.—Grand Forks Sun.
The Columbia Oil Company Limited, which hus holdings on Akamina
Brook in the Flathead valley, East
Kootenay, has a force of men at
work constructing roads and trails,
erecting buildings, tanks, etc., with
a view to resuming drilling in spring.
In the first well drilled by this company oil was struck'on two horizons.
Hard times have brought a revival
in placer mining. Several parties are
at work on the bars ol the Fraser
and Thompson rivers, and two new
strikes have been made where it is
stated good pay has been obtained.
At Thompson Biding, on the north
side of the Thompson river, a steam
pumping plant hns been installed to
raise water to wash a bench where,
in a clayey deposit considerable fine
gold hns been obtained. On the bars
of the Columbia river north of Revelstoke,  placer mining is going   on,
' and parties nre also reported a*i work
' on the Peace and Pino rivoi-8. A Var.-
couvir syndicate is putting in a
email hydraulic plant on Granite.
Creek, in tho Simllkumeen, and has
brought out nice samples of gold und
! platinum obtained there, lt is estimated that through the increased
activity in placor mining in tbo
Slmilknineen tho output of placer
gold from that section this season Ib
about ¥2'0,(l(IO—a considerable increase on recent years. Gilbert Blair,
of Vancouver, who recently Visited
thnt district, brought in with him
a large sample oi platinum, obtained
irom Mr. Cook, and which will be
forwarded to the Panama-Pacific Exposition, to be held at San Francisco.
lm the Argo mine, 90<) feet from
the surface and 1,200 feet from the
portal of thc tunnel a large body of
l'yritic quartz has been struck within the past few days. The miners
have drilled nine (cot into, and are
not yet through. An uBBuy from a
chance sample of this ore gives a
value to the ton of *f&0.2>7 in gold,
i.nd 75 cents in silver. The strike has
created a great sensation, and Greenwood is wild with enthusiasm. Nothing dincc the early days haB created
such excitement in this district. It
means the dawn of better times and
un era of great mining activity for
this town and district. The Ledge has
always maintained that the hills
around Greenwood contained millions
of dollars in ore but that it would
not wulk into town. Ola Lofstadt entertained the Bame opinion and ior
nearly six years he has plugged along
against trials amd troubles that
would daunt a Napoleon. Always
hopeful he has kept working until he
has demonstrated that there is a
heap of ore right at our doors. Mining men say that it is the greatest,
thing they havc seen in the country.
The company will hold a meeting
this weak to arrange plans for the
future. Here's to Ola and his tunnel!
He has demonserated that work iB
better than hot air and pesBimiasm.

After sundry adventures by the way
due to its awkward bulk and heavy
weight,    the cable for connecting  the
] north shore of ShuBwap Lake with
tbe south side, has been safely deposited on the bench near Sorrento
wharf. Preparations are now under
way for laying thc cable to the
wharf on Scotch Creek. Stringing of
tbe land wires will also be proceeded with and in a little while now the
north shore of the lake will be linked
up to the outside world by telephone.
This new line, which is part of the
Dominion government telephone system in the interior of this province,
connects with the trunk line at Kamloops, running thence to Chase, then
along the north shore ot tbe Little
Shuswap and Main Shuswap Lakes to
Scotch Creek wharf, then acroBB the
lake by cable to Sorrento, Blind Bay,
Curlin, Tappen,  Salmon Arm, Ender-
; by to Mara, where it terminates, tit
present. A branch from Scotch Creek
to Celista P.O. connects that busy
settlement     with  the system.     This
| latter branch, it is understood, will
eventually be extended along the
lake shore to Seymour Arm. It is
hoped that a further extension will
be made from Blind Bay following
ih« south shore of the main lake to
connect up the settlement centering
around the Eagle Bay post office.

When he s;nt his cohorts fuir Belgium to raid.
"The fii'ld of the dead" stalked before him thut night
Trampled and bleeding, 'twas u

There was really no danger be tried
to feel,
The guards they were double, the
room  made of steel.
The ghosts    of    his   victims    pressed
round  bis  bed,
i-omc without   arms,   some   without
They came from thc east, they came
from tbe  west
To torment poor Bill and keep   him
from rest.
And lo! in tbe   Conner, dark and dim,
Sat an uncouth  form,    with     aspect
A  German helmet he wore for a hat,
His tail coiled  biB neck  by  wuy     of
Ho!   ho!   he!   he!    'twas  a    horrible

British Columbians
Fight Well in France
A group of British Columbians ls
doing valiant service in the French
urniy, according to a story brought
to London by R. B. Cowcll of Golden, who says he has been one of the
British Columbians serving on the
French front with Garibaldi's legion.
Ho bus returned to London, having
bad his leg amputated in consequence of wounds and 'is now assisting
at the head recruiting oilice. Other
British Columbians who enlisted with
the Garibaldis are Johns, Darcy,
Wooilrow, Fraser, Williams, Tucker
and Johnson. Of these, Johns was
killed and Darcy and Woodrow are
now in the hospital. Tbe British Columbians, most of whom had been
employed In the Tigro mine in Mexico, came to England at their own expense  to   enlist   in    a      cavalry  regi.
ment but, finding no vacancies, proceeded to France and joined Garibaldi's legion, which Consists of
cavalry and infantry. Mr. Oowell
"My horse was shot, in an engagement at Troyes ami I could not extricate myself as I was carrying a
bunch of rifles. The horse fell on mo
and my kneecap was smashed. I had
to lie where I fell that night and half
the nest day before I was found by
the French Red Cross. They took me
back to Troyes where, after four operations, blood-poisoning compelled
the amputation of the leg."
Mr, Cowell is remarkably cheerful
and even jokes about his cork substitute,  Which  be says works  well.
