The boys in the trenches are
gluttons for reading matter. If
you have any recent magazines
that you do not need, by handing
them to Secretary Jack Frost of
the Soldiers' Aid, who will thus

be helping to cheer the boys in
their daily round of trench life
and help them relieve monotony.
London: South and southwest

ROOSEVELT AND THE MAP OF EUROPE
T et the average citizen get into his mind what this war is for.
���" The Prussianized Germany of the Hohenzollerns has shown
itself even more the enemy of freedom and humanity and justice
and international right than was Napoleon's France. Did they but
know it, the German people themselves would benefit by our
victory; and especially the people of South Germany and of Austria,
who would be freed from the tyranny of Prussia, and would be
guaranteed in all their rights���surely more than an offset for not
being allowed to wrong others.
Belgium and France must have all that has been taken from
them restored. The Turks must leave Europe���a democratic
Russia at Constantinople will threaten no one; or eise a free
internationalized Constantinople could be established. Armenia
should be free and autonomous. Austria is not a country, but a
knot of nationalities of which two tyrannize over the others. Let
the Hungarians keep Magyar Hungary, and the Austrians German
Austria. Let the Italians have Trentino and Trieste. Let there be
a great Serbia, a great Bohemia.a great Roumania. Poland should
once more be a nation, which should include all the Polish lands,
and have an outlet on the Baltic through old Polish Prussia, old
West Prussia.
East Prussia, which is Germany, would be unavoidably separated
from the other German lands, but it could keep united politically
and commercially by arrangements for through railway traffic,such
as we have with Canada as regards our international railroads.
The Germans would keep Germany, would lose nothing except the
right to oppress others, would suffer no injustice. Home rule
should come to Ireland. Seek justice for every one; the Dane of
North Schleswig, the Finn, the Uniate, the Caucassian in Russia.
Endeavor to secure a guarantee of real religious freedom and fair
play for Catholic, Protestant, Orthodox and Jew alike.
���Colonel Roosevelt.
Everybody is aware also that the
copper supplies of that great
industrial area in western Europe,
comprising the territory of the
central powets, have been exhausted, and that following the
termination of the war the manufacturers in that section will
have to be resupplied. We know
too that the rehabilitation of
transportation facilities, both on
land and sea will call for immense
tonnages of copper, and there is
reasonable assurance that the
industrial development of the
world will receive new impetus
immediately, after peace is reestablished.
The outlook, viewed from every
possible standpoint, therefore, is
favorable to the continuing prosperity of the copper producing
business for a very long period
of years to come. Though there
is no prospect will sell at 28 or 30
cents a pound indefinitely, there
are indications that a materially
higher level of prices than those
prevailing prior to the war will
be necessary to encourage the
immense volume of production
that will be required to supply
the demand.
OF INTEREST TO
LOCAL SETTLERS
Hon. John Oliver, minister of
agriculture, has authorized the
purchase of a limited number of
stumping machines,to be supplied
to farmers' institutes on a deferred payment system. This action
is the outcome of a number of
requests received by the department from farmers' institutes.
In giving the farmers' institutes this opportunity to purchase
these machines the department
assumes absolutely no responsibility, and makes no recommendations regarding comparative
efficiency of the various types of
machines on the market. The
deputy minister and superintendent of institutes,Wm. E. Scott,
has witnessed several demonstrations and at each one the results
have been satisfactory.
The department of agriculture
will supply application forms to
any farmers' institute on request.
These forms must be signed by
the president, vice-president and
directors and also by five members of the institute. Freight
charges on the machines must be
paid by the institute from the
factory.
Terms of payment for the
machines are: One third on
delivery, one-third in one year
and the remaining third in two
years.
No interest will be charged on
unpaid balances, but interest at
ten per cent will be charged on
overdue payments. Institutes
that fail to make their payments
promptly will not receive their
per capita grant on account of
membership, but this sum will
be devoted towards the payments
due. The department recommends that all institutes securing
these machines adopt a plan
whereby a fixed charge of so
much per diem be paid by members who use the mechine. By
this means a fund will be provided towards paying the cost of
the machine and depreciation in
value.

The Hazelton Mines
Under the caption "American
Capital in Northern B.C." the
Trail News prints the following:
"Ninety per cent of all development on Rocher de Boule
mountain, Hazelton district of
British Columbia and vicinity, is
being performed by American
capital, and a large part of it is
from Spokane, Wash., or under
the management o f Spokane
men,"said E. P. Spalding.mining
engineer, on his return from the
district, where he has spent about
a year. "Among the properties
represented by Spokane men are
the Silver Standard, Rocher de
Boule, Highland Boy, Cassiar
Crown, a group owned by James
Cronin and the Amargosa, of
which I have charge. The Rocher de Boule has received $1,-
500,000 net smelter returns from
its ore, the shipment of which
began two years ago.
Europe's Copper Exhausted
Now the time has come to
review past history and analyze
the future outlook calmly and
rationally, says Walker, the copper authority. It is common
knowledge that the demand for
copper has exceeded the supply
for more than two years, that
prices have been almost unbelievably high, that the producing
companies, in addition to paying
dividends at unprecedented rates,
have accumulated vast sums in
cash and quick assets, putting
themselves in a stronger position
to cope with trade emergencies
than they ever have been before,

THE MINER WAR BULLETINS
MONDAY, JUNE 25
London: There is little major
activity in any of the war theaters, except along the Aisne
front, in northern France. Here
the German crown prince engaged in a series of attacks on
the French lines along the western end of the Chemin des Dames,
where the curving front protects
the German fortress of Laon,
which a further French advance
would menace. These attacks
met with success at one or two
places, notably near Froidmont
farm, where a considerable salient
of the French line fell into German hands. Serious attempts to
debouch from this salient were
broken up by the French and no
further advance was made.
In the eastern war theater are
indications that important fighting may soon be under way.
While conditions in inner Russia
continue uncertain and mixed,
the nation's armed forces seem
to be regaining their morale, and
are nearly ready to attack once
more. Everywhere signs point
to a demand for a general move
without delay.
While the Italians were forced
to let up in their attacks in the
Trentino, which resulted in the
capture of the important height
of Monte Ortega, it was emphasized in an announcement that the
Austrians lost some of their heavy
artillery as well as suffering other
losses of magnitude in the operations.
Copenhagen: Two-thirds of
the workmen of the Berlin shops
of the Prussian state railways
struck yesterday to enforce their
demands for a 9-hour day. The
men, who have been working
11 hours a day, declare it is
impossible to continue such work
on inadequate food.
New York: More than two
thousand British and Canadian
subjects in the U.S. have enlisted
at the British recruiting station
here.
Stockholm: An anti-British
propaganda has been begun here
by T. S. Gaffney, former Ameri-
consul at Munich, who declares
he is here to represent the cause
of Irish freedom.
TUESDAY, JUNE 26
New York: General Pershing's
force of 25,000 American soldiers
in all probability holds four miles
of trenches between Anglo-French
sectors on a portion of the west
front.
London : Although" official
statements report little activity,
the British are keeping up their
pressure day and night along the
entire 120-mile front which they
occupy. Last night a number of
local enterprises were carried out
successfully. One of these operations was rather important, as
it increased our grip about Lens.
Under the light of the stars British troops stormed and captured
four hundred yards of front line
German trenches eastof Riaumont
wood, on the western outskirts
of Lens, thus drawing closer to
the mining capital. Elsewhere,
several raids in the darkness
served to keep the Prussians'
nerves on edge, and a number of
the enemy was killed.
Col.   Repington sums  up  the
efforts of the British drive.     He
declares Hindenburg is unable to
do anything but support his tottering defences. All possibility
of taking the offensive has been
snatched from the German leader.
A great reception was accorded
Venizelos by the Greek people,
who acclaimed the former premier
and rushed to embrace him when
he landed at Piraeus. A Veni-
zelist ministry will supplant that
of Zaimis, and the leaders are
prepared to check any movement
of the old regime.
Amsterdam : A miracle is
needed to save the German crops
from failure. Teutonic papers
unite in the statement that only
a moderate return can be expected. The shortage of food has
grown serious. The human supply is inadequate and cattle are
in even a worse plight. Vegetable and fiuit crops are reported
an utter failure. The people are
eating wild plants.
New York: A high state official has stated that the U. S. will
soon evolve a new style of airplane wherin speed will be sacrificed for heavy armament and
general invulnerability from attack.
A huge fleet of torpedo-equipped airplanes is Rear-admiral
Fiske's solution of the submarine
problem, and it would be the
answer to the German high seas
fleet's refusal to leave the safety
of the fortresses at Helgoland
and Kiel.
New York: T. P. O'Connor,
accompanied by Richard Hazelton,
M. P., has arrived here. The
noted Irishman will lay the real
issues before those of his race.
Cork: Machine guns were
used on Sinn Feiners in disturbances here yesterday morning.
One was killed and several were
wounded.
WEDNESDAY, JUNE 27
London: The outstanding feature of the battlefront activities
in the past 24 hours was a great
British drive towards Lens. The
Germans have heen compelled
since the Messines victory to keep
large forces constantly mobilized
to withstand countless surprise
attacks. Recent operations in
this section lead to the conviction
that something approaching a
decisive battle may be expected
here in the near future. Hritish
forces were busy yesterday along
a fifty-mile front from Epehy
northward to Hooge.
The American government will
announce the disposal of its
forces on the western front at
the proper time.
Paris: Suddenly assuming the
offensive over a wide front north
of Hurtboise, the French last
night captured front line German
trenches and completely attained
all objectives. The Huns lost
heavily,  and bOO were captured.
Berlin: Sharp fighting took
place yesterday between Teutons
and Russians on the battlefronts
of southeastern Galicia and in
the Carpathians. On the eastern
Macedonian front clashes have
occurred between British and
Bulgarian detachments.
Athens: Greece is expected to
join the Allies in a few months.
The assumption of power by
Venizelos may be followed by a
great campaign for the Entente.
The new premier will not mobil
ize the nation against its will.
Venizelos was received yesterday
by King Alexander and will
succeed Zaimis. French troops
have entered Athens. Slight
disturbances by Gounaris' followers were quickly subdued. The
Allies now command the Greek
situation.
Rome: The conquest of the
highest peak of Ortigara has
given the Italians control of the
whole of that mountain   region.
New York: The Russians are
prepared to assume the offensive.
A correspondent predicts a spectacular drive on the eastern front
which will tax German resources
to the utmost. The army is fit
and anxious to redeem itself.
Norway would fight if the U.S.
gave the invitation. Secret service men say the country's rage
is at boiling point over the continued outrages against her merchant marine.
The German minister to Norway has resigned.
Jassy: Germany has imposed
a fine of 250,000,000 francs on
the occupied Roumanian territory.
THURSDAY, JUNE 28
London: Throughout the day
Haig continued his tactics along
the British front, harrying the
enemy everywhere. Every day
threatens Lens more. Everyday
sees local battles and local retirements by the enemy. Air fleets
flock the blazing sky. Prussian
machines are conspicuously avoiding battle whenever possible.
Air raid reprisals are not approved. The British cannot lower
themselves to the level of the
German murderers.
The commission which investigated the Kut-el-Amara disaster
severely blames Sir John Nixon,
whose over-optimism was the
main cause of the untoward affair. Armament and equipment
were insufficient for the needs of
the expedition. The former viceroy and commander-in-chief in
India are held responsible.
Paris: So thoroughly complete
was the French victory on Tuesday at Hurteboise that the Germans did not even attempt a
counter-attack.
London: Alfonso of Spain may
be the next king to lose his throne.
The revolutionary movement is
assuming large proportions and
the dynasty is threatened. The
monarch is accused of playing
favorites, and two-thirds of the
politicians favor his overthrow.
Senor Marti may head a revolution. The royal family was hissed in the theaters.
Washington: American troops
have arrived safely in France.
No figures are given.
That the king of Bavaria plotted with the Russian agitator
| Lenine is the deduction made
alter intercepting wireless messages from the monarch. The
revelation stirred the congress of
soldiers' and workmen's delegates
in Petrograd, and a resolution
against sepaiate peace received
overwhelming support.
Italy's position is questioned
by the Greeks. Venizelos is expected to clear up the situation
with the Allies' aid. A counter
to Italian ambitions is declared
desirable. An immediate conflict
of opinion rests upon the Italian
occupation of Epirus. All uncertainties must be removed be
fore Greece participates in the
war.
Christiania: The discovery of
a German plot to destroy Norwegian steamers by explosives
placed aboard them was unearth-
last week, and has appalled the
whole nation.
FRIDAY, JUNE 29
London: Canadian troops have
occupied the town of of Eleu Du
Leavette, half a mile southwest
of Lens. This is the nearest approach made yet on the city.
Lens is now surrounded on three
sides.
Paris: The Germans last night
attacked the salient of Wattweiler
northeast of Thann, in Alsace,
but were repulsed, leaving a
number dead. Violent artillery
engagements succeeded infantry
fighting in the Hurteboise and
Cornillet sectors.
Paris is flooded with American
naval officers and bluejackets
from the ships which escorted
the American expeditionary army
on its voyage to France. They
were given a great welcome.
Amsterdam: Several priests
of the entourage of Cardinal
Mercier,primate of Belgium, were
arrested recently and have been
imprisoned in Germany. Twenty
others have been incarcerated in
Belgium, among them Cardinal
Mercier's private secretary, who
was sentenced to one year in
prison for preaching a sermon on
Christian charity.
The Huns are fearful of a Russian offensive, and Austrian divisions are being hurriedly rushed
from the Italian front.
Washington: Somewhere in
France thousands of American
fighting men are encamped ready
to take their places beside the
the seasoned campaigners of the
Allies. These forces will be a
net gain to the Allies, as the men
will be fed, clothed, armed and
equipped by the United States.
A sufficient supply for many
months is already in France.
Montreal: Henri Bourassa, in
a three-hour speech, said Canada
went into the war as a slave.
Fear of invasion keeps two million
men in England, he declared.
He described meetings in Vancouver as being "terrorized" by
soldiers, and made a threat of a
big strike by anti-conscription-
ists.
