GUARDS WITHDRAWN
IN SOME DISTRICTS
BELGIUM IS NOW ONE VAST BATTLEFIELD
THREE MILLION SOLDERS AWAIT HOUR OF CONFLICT
MANY PRELIMINARY ENGAGEMENTS ARE REPORTED
London,  Aug.  22:���Delays and repulses have so hampered the I heavy losses.    The Germans were strongly entrenched, and their
Germans that they are now eighteen days behind their plan of'artillery fire decimated the French forces.    One wing was nearly
Owing to the frequent rains
which have fallen in the northern
portion of the province this summer, the forest branch has concluded that in a number of districts the forest guards een be
withdrawn from patrol and employed on permanent improvements, such as trails and cabins,
and also in clearing up dangerous
slash. In accordance with this
policy, District Forester Allen
has been given authority to exempt districts from which patrolmen have been removed from
the fire permit provisions of the
Forest Act.
While the removal of patrolmen
may be considered a dangerous
move, since it can easily happen
that hot, dry weather will occur
before fall, the district forester
feels that if the public will exercise extra care in the building of
camp fires and in the use of fire
in clearing land, no trouble will
result.
Mr. Allen has received word
from Victoria that the fire situation in the southern part of the
province has been worse this
summer that any previous season
in the last two decades, and that
the forest branch has been under
exceptionally heavy expenditures
in fighting fires. The fund
which is set aside for fire-fighting purposes and which, if not
needed for fires, is used for
building trails, telephone lines
and cabins, has been practically
exhausted, and the only chance
of constructing needed improvements is by taking the forest
guards from patrol duty and assigning them to improvement
work.

campaign, under which they were to have entered Paris yesterday.
It is believed a great and possibly decisive battle will be fought on
Sunday or Monday, probably along the Dender river, twenty miles
west of Brussels, Here are assembled over half a million troops
of the German northern wing. This force is probably surrounded
by the Allies, save upon the east. Fighting may occur simultaneously along the whole 250-mile frontier, with nearly three million
engaged, but the main battle will be in Belgium, west of Brussels.
The Germans have retired from Basel, leaving 500 dead and
wounded with the advancing French. This is the only engagement reported today.
The French claim that Upper Alsace is cleared of Germans,
and that in a small district at Auden, no French territory is occupied by the enemy. The French thus far have captured ninety
German field guns and four flags. French troops advancing in
Lorraine have been forced to fall back.
British and French warships are reported to have bombarded
Cattaro, Austria, doing great damage. This action is believed to
part of an Anglo-French naval plan.
Twenty Russian army corps, each of 40,000, will invade Germany. The Russian line of advance is over sixty miles long.
Many of the troops are already in German territory.
An Austrian army is moving along the Rhine, to meet the
French in Alsace.
The Belgians fell back in good order on Antwerp, which is
now in a state of seige.     All foreigners have been asked to leave.
The condition of Belgians in territory occupied by the Germans
is pitiable.   Thousands are without food and shelter.
The German fleet at Kiau Chau has disappeared in the direction of Marshall Islands in the South Seas. Japan is likely to drive
the Germans out of Kiau Chau tomorrow, when her ultimatum
expires.
Eighteen German officers and 450 men, prisoners of war, have
arrived in England.
Vancouver, Aug. 22:���Two thousand troops will leave Vancouver today for the camp at Valeartier.
British shipowners now allow their vessels to leave Puget
Sound ports for the Orient, confident that the British warships
will have no difficulty in protecting shipping in the Pacific.
The Canadian cruiser Rainbow arrived at Prince Rupert yesterday afternoon. Her whereabouts was unknown to the public
and her appearance at Rupert was unexpected. Search for the
German cruisers Leipzig and Nurnberg is being made along the
coast by the British cruisers Newcastle and Monmouth, the Canadian destroyers, and the French cruiser Montcalm.
A militia battalion is being recruited in Prince Rupert. C. VV.
Peck is colonel and J. H. McMullin major.
routed, but the men rallied with splendid gallantry and charged
the German lines, which were broken and put to flight.
Anticipating the bombardment of Brussels by the Germans,
the Belgian capital has been moved to Antwerp.
The French war office announces that the advance in Alsace
continues. The troops have taken heights on the north Alsatian
frontier in German territory. The French are also in possession of
the valley of Schirmeck, where they took 1000 prisoners.
The German Emperor is reported to have left for the front.
China insists that Japan allow her to recover with her own
forces the Kiau Chau territory held by the Germans.
London, Aug. 19:���There is an unconfirmed report that the
German crown prince is wounded and dying at Aix la Chapelle.
It is officially announced that 100,000 British troops, with 200
guns, are facing the Germans in Belgium. The entire British expeditionary force, number not given, has been safely landed in
France.   Another force is being prepared for the front.
French troops have penetrated thirty miles into Germany. The
Germans are reported to be retreating, with serious loss.
Germany has offered to cease hostilities against Belgium and
to withdraw her troops as soon as compatible with Franco-German
war conditions, in recognition of bravery of Belgians. The latter
refuse.
The Servian government announces that the Austrians were
completely routed in a battle seven miles west of Belgrade. The
Servians pursued the defeated Austrians, of whom 15,000 are said
to have been annihilated.
British and German forces have come into conflict in the Gold
Coast, Africa.
Vancouver, Aug. 19:���The German. cruiser Leipzig collided
with a British merchant ship in San Francisco harbor yesterday.
The warship's wireless apparatus was wrecked, but she was compelled to leave the harbor, her day of grace having expired. No
hostilities along the coast are reported.
Two German cruisers, badly battered in a fight, were brought
into Hongkong by British warships.     Names and details censored.
Rome, Aug. 19:���Worry over the war has accentuated the
Pope's illness, which has become exceedingly serious.
Ottawa, Aug. 19:���The Dominion parliament opened its special
war session today, and may prorogue on Saturday. There was no
ceremony. The Duke of Connaught's speech dealt entirely with
the war situation. It was necessary, he said, that Canada should
make ample provision for defence.
The supply bills which will passed are likely to call for fifty
to seventy-five millions. Bills to validate the action already taken
by the government will also be passed.

THE MINER'S WAR BULLETINS
London, Aug. 17;���In Belgium preparations are being made
for a great land battle between the Allies and the German forces.
Great Britain has 150,000 troops encamped east of Waterloo, to act
in conjunction with the Belgians and French. No important battle
has yet been fought.
Dr. Leibnecht, leader of the Socialists in the German parliament, has been shot for refusing to join the army. German socialists are aroused over the execution of their chief, and the first
signs of a revolution are observable.
Sir Hiram Maxim, the gunnery expert, says the chances against
Germany are ten to one on land, and one hundred  to one on  sea.
Japan has sent a final ultimatum to Germany, requiring the
withdrawal before Aug. 23 of all German warships in the Far East
and the evacuation of the German stronghold of Kiau Chau. Failing compliance by Germany, Japan will take action, declaring her
intention of upholding the integrity of China.
German soldiers are reported to have driven two thousand
citizens out of Metz because the troops needed all the food in the
city.   The expelled citizens crossed the frontier to France.
Vancouver, Aug. 17:���Two hundred men from the local regiments are being sent to Prince Rupert, for guard duty, under Lieut-
Col. McSpadden. ,

London, Aug. 17:���The British official news bureau says the
French Mediterranean fleet swept the Adriatic Sea as far as Cattaro. One Austrian vessel was sunk. A despatch from Cettinje
states that three Austrian warships were sunk by the French fleet.
In the fighting between Namur and Dinant the French suffered
London, Aug. 20:���Reports from Belgium indicate that a great
battle is being waged between the Allies and the German army.
The Germans are advancing on Brussels and fierce fighting is in
progress. This is believed to be the real beginning of the first
general engagement of the war in Belgium. The battle is raging
along an extended front, the heaviest firing appearing to the east
of Brussels, which may soon fall to the Germans. The Belgian
government has been removed to Antwerp, where the last line of
defence is being established.
The French forces are gaining ground in Alsace-Lorraine.
A naval battle in the North Sea appears to be imminent.
It is predicted that Italy and Japan will both soon be engaged
in the war, on the side of the Allies. Japan, it is expected, will
expel all Germans from China.
A large force of Germans have defeated a Russian army which
invaded East Prussia. One thousand Russians were taken prisoners.
Ottawa, Aug. 20: Canada's war vote will be fifty millions.
Unexampled enthusiasm attended the opening of the debate. Borden and Laurier were both cheered to the echo by both sides of the
house. All party warfare was forgotten. Laurier closed a remarkable speech with the prediction that Britain would emerg from this
just war with a stronger bond of union, the pride of all her citizens and a living lesson to other nations. He said the Liberals
would support the government in all measures to assist Great
Britain.
Sir Robert Borden said no government ever made more wholehearted efforts for the preservation of peace than the British government. Canadians unreservedly approved Britain's action and
could be depended upon to respond to any call from the Empire.
He moved that the British official papers dealing with the beginning of the war, with the speeches of Asquith and Grey, be printed
for distribution throughout Canada. Dr. Clark, Liberal, always a
strong advocate of peace, whose son is in the expeditionary force,
moved the inclusion of Bonar Law's speech, as containing matter
of importance not otherwise dealt with.     The premier agreed.
Victoria, Aug. 20:- The provincial government has called a
conference of manufacturers, boards of trade, municipal councils
and other public bodies for Tuesday next, at Victoria, to diBcuss
the economic situation in British Columbia.

No. 51,
The great war is now on in earnest. Great Britain and her
allies are facing the German armies in Belgium, and as this is
written it is believed the first great engagement of the war is rag
ing in the vicinity of Brussels. What the immediate outcome will
be it is impossible to say, hut the disarrangement of^the German
plans by the resistance of the Belgians gives ground for the belief
that the Allies will bring the invading forces to bay. The ultimate
defeat of the Teutonic forces is not seriously questioned. Practi
cully the whole world outside of Germany and Austria endorses the
action of Britain. The New York World, which has not always
been friendly to Britain, says:
"Germany has run amuck. There is no other explanation of
the Kaiser's policy in forcing a general European war.
"Fortunate it is that Great Britain is compelled to cast her
sword into the balance without further loss of time.
"The course of the German government cannot be reconciled
with any theory of political sanity. Wantonly and deliberately the
Kaiser has plunged his sword into the heart of civilization. The
whole world is paying the penalty of his madness, neutrals as well
as belligerents."
Copper Production in B. C.
(From The Chalcopyrite)
British Columbia is a kingdom
both in area and resources, and
its developed wealth in timber,
minerals, arable lands and fisheries is trivial, compared with
ics possibilities. The first mining was for gold, in placer washings, shortly after the middle of
the nineteenth century, after
which the mining industry languished, until the completion of
the Canadian Pacific railroad,
when quartz mining was begun,
in a small way, first for gold and
silver, and later for lead. It
was found, about 18!)G, that the
mines of the Trail district carried
considerable copper values, and
the copper industry of the province dates from that discovery.
In the last years of the century
the first mines were opened in the
Boundary district, and these have
become of great importance.
Most of the gold and silver mines
of British Columbia carry more
or less lead and copper, highly
useful as fluxing agents, while
the copper ores almost invariably
have appreciable values in gold
and silver, this comity of the
metals aiding greatly in the development of the various mining
fields of the province, most of
which are low in grade, though
with large ore bodies.
In 1906 the Boundary district
made 75 per cent of the total
copper production of British
Columbia, followed with 12...
per cent from the mines of the
P.tcific coast, and 11.5 per cent
from the Rossland mines of the
Trail district. With better transportation facilities, some of the
other and newer districts are becoming of great importance.
The copper smelting industry
of the province is well developed,
and British Columbia has some
of the largest, most modern and
best managed copper smelters
now in existence, and the Granby
mine, of the Boundary distriel,
holds the world's record for low
smelling costs.
Look For Porphyry
For many years prospectors in
the state of Nevada gave their
e itire attention to the silver-lead
ir.'J,   which occurred chiefly in
those  sections  where  limestone
predominated.
After Tonopah and Goldfield
began to produce their millions,
porphyry became fashionable as
a rock formation favorable for
gold, and as time went on and
its popularity increased, all that
waB necessary to start a stampede was the announcement that
porphyry had been found iu such
and such a place,
That like conditions will be re
pealed   in   this part of the world
seems certain,   for   we   believe
that more porphyry exists in the
country  drained   by the Skeena
river and  its tributaries than in
any other part of the world of
similar extent,   and  that  when
these immense porphyry features
receive due investigation by prospectors  who are   familiar with
gold  mining, developments wi
transpire that will excite greater
interest among   men  who mine
than   anything   which   has  oc
curred since the Nevada stam
pede.
New Town's Progress
Skeena Crossing justifies its
name from the fact that it is situated at a point where the G. T,
P, railway crosses the Skeena
j river, one hundred and sixty
miles north east of Prince Rupert.
Six months ago it was a Hug
station with but little use for a
Hag. Now, all trains stop here
to take on and discharge freight
and passengers, and trainmen
say that more people get on and
olf at Skeena Crossing than at
I any other town between Prince
Rupert and Smithers.
In January a post office was installed. Since then the volume
of mail matter received and sent
out has increased tenfold.
Four months ago we were given
telegraphic connection with the
wide, wide world. In May the
total receipts of the telegraph
ollice were $60, in June they
iiad increased to $1)0.60, and in
July they totalled $146, all of
which was mining money, paid
by mining men for business connected with this immediate distiict.
Our hotel, the Copper Tavern,
has received its final coat of
paint, the paper hangers are at
work in its sleeping rooms, and
in a few short weeks it will be
ready for occupancy.
Skeena Crossing has taken
root, and its growth from now
on will be continuous and rapid.

Old But True
I speak advisedly and say what
every man who has investigated
knows to be the truth, that money invested on good mining stock
if safer than in the banks, than
in mortgages, than in railroad
securities, municipal or government bonds.
The security of a mining stock
is the raw material of money itself; it is the "stuff" at whose
feet governments, cities, banks,
railroads, mortgages, land corporations and all other forms of
business kneel.
1 only speak of gold and silver
mines, from the metal of which
blooms and blossoms the everlasting dollar. This is what
makes banks and banking a possibility: this is what gives legs
to municipality, spine to the government, and creates the business of the world into a living,
breathing, active creature of life.
Mining has been the foundation of the world's wealth from
the beginning of time, and investigation shows that mining
offers greater inducements than
any other business in the world
to make quick and great wealth.

THE MINER'S WAR BULLETINS
(Continued from Page One)
London, Aug. 21:���German cavalry, as advance guard, have
entered Brussels. A large German force is following. The city
did not offer resistance, the invaders being allowed to take possession of the capital, the Belgian defence being concentrated at Antwerp, one of the most impregnable cities in Europe.
At Aerschot, fifteen miles northeast of Brussels, and at Tirle-
mont, twenty miles east, the Germans were defeated by the Allies.
The latter were outnumbered and pushed back at Tirlemont, which
was occupied by the Germans. The Allies, however, returned with
reinforcements and long-range guns and drove the Germans out.
There was also a fierce battle at Namur. The Germans are reported to have lostsix thousand killed in these engagements. The
Allies also lost heavily.
It is officially reported that the French have recaptured Mul-
hausen at the point of the bayonet, taking six German cannon.
Great losses on both sides. After continuous fighting, the French
have driven lhe Germans back across the frontier east of Luneville,
Gumbinen, a German town twenty miles west of the Russian
frontier, has been taken by the Russians, with twelve cannon and
many prisoners.
Of the main land campaign the official news bureau says
nothing, but it is believed a great battle is being fought in Belgium.
The Germans have gained ground on both banks of the Meuse.
Berlin announces Germany's refusal of Japan's demand for the
surrender to China of Kiau Chau. The Japanese ambassador is
said to have left Berlin, and a declaration of war is expected.
A small German force has crossed the frontier in British East
Africa.
Home says the war may delay the election of a successor to the
late Pope.
Ottawa, Aug. 20:���Finance Minister White has announced that
it is necessary to raise $58,600,000 for war expenses. This will be
done by changes in customs tariffs and excise duties. The increase
will be chiefly on coffee, sugar, liquors and cigars.
Vancouver, Aug. 20:���It is reported here that the minister of
marine has notified Prince Kupert of the near approach of a German warship, coming for coal, and has urged the people of the city
not to give aid to the enemy's vessel, even under threat of bombardment of the city. No intimation comes from Prince Rupert of
he presence of a foreign war. hip off the northern coast. The
