New Market Hall on Second Street Ready for Business
— Filled With Convenient Stalls - Farmers Will
Bring Produce for Sale Next Saturday
Will Send Reinforcements to
Battle Line   More Men
Vernon, June 19.—Under the command of Col. VI. Mahlon Bavis, there
is in camp today at Vernon a battalion which is not thirty days old
and yet one which in class of ollicers
and men may favorably be compared
with any other unit yet sent against
the toe, The most impressive thing
about the men, and they are impressive even though tbey huve not yet
drawn their uniforms, is their evident fitness and tbeir muscular
Btrength. They are lean and hard.
They come from all manner of open-
air occupations and trades. Some of
them were ranchers, others piloted
the Canadian Pacific railway lake
Steamers and still others herded cattle on the Cariboo road or in the
country  contingent thereto.
It is a battalion of plain clothes
men as yet, but a battalion of strong
upstanding fellows, who probably
weigh more, man for man, than tue
average  man  on  the  etreet.
Recruiting was begun on May 1,
Thirty days later the battalion was
practically complete. Today it is
Calling for enough men to form a
base company. This base company is
the battalion's own private' reinforcement as a civilian would say. It is
left at the battalion's base when the
battalion goes into action and sends
up men when wanted. Its strength
will bring the strength of the battalion up to 11:10 men, tbe strength of
the 29th Vancouver battalion.
In addition to recruiting for a base
company a draft of 235 officers and
men is to be • sent away before the
end of the month from the 54th and
men are wanted to fill their places.
The 54th battalion has secured permission to call itself the 51th Kootenay battalion. Its recruiting territory consists of practically the entire
interior of the province. Vet to bring
itself up to strength it found that it
was unnecessary to go far away from
the towns of Nelson, Fernie, Grand
Forks, Cranbrook, Golden, Rossland,
Kamloops, 1'entictou, Princeton and
Revelstoke. Lieut. Archer went up in
the Cariboo road as far as Quesnel
and secured til men along tbe road
and at Quesnel. There are several
score men at Fort (George who have
"wanted on." They will get their
chance later  in  the month.
From a rough survey of the situation iu the interior it is believed that
there are enough men available to
torn not only one or two infantry
battalions, but several, as many as
the government can eguip with uniforms and accoutrements in face.
The 54th Kootenay battalion has in
its ranks ranchers, prospectors, miners, pilots, mates, firemen, brakesmen, lawyers, doctors, newspaper
men, bank clerks, engineers, businessmen, cow boys and men who have always lived in tbe open and worked
there. One Boundary newspaper sent
eight of its employees to the 54th
and had to entirely reorganize its
staff, Capt. W. Garland Foster of
Nelson  was the  editor of that, paper.
Col. W. Mnhlnn Davil came from
Vancouver. He is a consulting engineer to the harbor I oard of tbe North
Fraser Harbor. He was formerly City
engineer In Woodstock and Berlin,
dilating class from the Royal Milit-
Hc was a member of the first grn-
nry college, Kingston. He wns 13
years adjutant of tb" Oxford Ritles,
brigade major ..f the Bet md Infantry
Brigade at London, Ont., for four
years, and organized the 24th Grey's
Horse.  He wns born at Aylmer,    El
gin County, Ontario. He was in command of the engineer section   of the
Vancouver Volunteer Reserve     before
i he took command ot  the 54th Koot-
j enay.
His second in command is Major
IE. G. Kendall of Kaslo. Other officers on the staff are: Major R. D.
Bavies of Cranbrook; Capt. William
Neilson, adjutant, Fruitvale; Capt. R,
H. Green, Victoria, paymaster; Capt.
W. Garland Foster, quartermaster,
Nelson; Lieut, Ridgway Wilson of

At a meeting of »he board of trade

R. F. Green,
We understand there are large numbers of interned men in Yoho a ,d

board of trade believe that some
hundreds should be placed in Revelstoke park, we understand there are
a large number of those interned unemployed at Vernon. Kindly place
this before the proper authorities and
anything you can do toward having

Monarch Mine at
Field is Operated
The, Great Western Mines Bevtlop-
•nent company of Vancouver has taken a lease and bond on tbe Monarch
mine and mill at r'ield and has located as placer grotinu the old dumps
with a view to Working tbem for
zinc. The company made uu issue ot
shares for working the property and
the issue was over suuseribed. Newton Vi. Emmens is in churge of operations at Field, and tn a report to
Vi. Gray, managiug director of the
company, of a recent date, he stated:
"We are malting rapid progress
with the tramline and mill. The
light-of-way for the tram has been
cleared and the foundations for the
towers is being got ready to crush
ore hy Friday next and we ought to
be in steady operation thereafter.
With the changes that are being
made to the machinery and thc classification system we expect to turn
out a /-ine concentrate containing
close to SO per cent. metallic zinc,
and a lead concentrate of over 70
per cent, metallic lead. The assay oilice is in shape and our chemist, Mr.
Comrie, has commenced making a
series of assays of the lower part ol
the dump and of some ore which is
in the upper terminal ot the truin
and in the lower raise. There iB a
considerable tonnage ot tins ore-
tome 200 tons—and we arc going to
put it througb so as to get the mill
adjusted on it. At the lower end of
of the dump there is u Considerable
amount of galena, and we propose to
gather this up tirst so ab to be able
to ship thc lead; we also propose to
re-concentrate the zinc so as to get
rid of the lime and to separate the
"in cleaning up around the tnlll we
have come across a lot i.f material
heavy in lead; tins we pr iposi to inn
through tei save the galena. I expect
to have several cars ol clean galena
to ship to Trull within the next
couple of weeks. We have not had
time to go thoroughly over the mine
yet, as it is necessary to do some repair work to the trail leading to lt.
This will be done in the next day or
so nei the mine sampled, tbe results
of which will be sent you. For your

what Hake tells nun there is little

Canadian Welfare League Cares Fof
Winnipeg's Civic Industrial Bureau
holds many interesting things and
people, but, tucked away in one of
the second-storey rooms I found
something and somebody symbolizing
much in Canadian national life—tha
Canadian Welfare League and its
secretary, says Florence Randall
Livesay in a recent article. A man
with the face of a practical idealist,
if you can Imagine such a combination, is giving himself and his undoubted literary and magnetic powers to the betterment of his country,
with a fine abandon of strength and
energy, tempered with the saving
grace of humor and of good sense;
delighting in it. since "happy is the
man who has found his work."
Toornto University has sent many
of her best men to the West, and,
while they do not forget their Alma
Mat>r. they Inevitably become absorbed in the new field, and soon are
surprised to find themselves quite
willing to ho classed as " good
westerner. Mr. Woodsworth was a
student at Victoria College before
Manitoba University took him to her
sheltering arms, and later he took
a post-graduate course at Oxford.
While there he made a special study
of settlement work, and spent some
time in the slums of East London.
It was natural, then, that yvhile engaged in a ministerial capacity in
Winnipeg he should give full play to
the bent shown in his college days,
and the work being done by Mrs.
Margaret Pcott and others in forming
the Winnipeg Coffee and Lodging
House claimed h^ energies. Tiat led
eventually en thi taking over of tho
