KILDARE STRIKES BIG PAY
Ottawa Company Operating on
Slate Creek Finds Rich
Streak of Gravel
Miners returning from Manson
report that the Kildare Co.,
which is operating on Slate creek,
struck the paystreak about three
weeks ago, the ground proving
remarkably rich. In seven days'
work, before lack of water necessitated suspension of operations, several thousand dollars'
worth of gold was recovered.
Much of the gold ie coarse, and
the gravel is reported to run up
to $2.40 to the pan,"lhe pay being
six feet thick. Some miners estimate that the company will
take out $1000 a day in hydraul-
icking.
The extremely dry season
caused an early shut-down. The
Omineca river is lower than ever
known before.
G. W. Otterson, manager of
the Kildare, came out this week,
with his crew, but declined to
make any statement in advance
of his report to the company,
which is an Ottawa concern.
W. B. Steele, deputy mining
recorder, and D. L. Purvis, a
veteran of the Omineca, who are
now here, confirm the report of
the Klldare's richness, which is
likely to attract considerable at*
tention to our great placer district.    __

GERMANS STUBBORNLY RESIST THE ALLIES
CANADIAN TROOPS LEAVE FOR THE FRONT-
SUBMARINES SINK THREE BRITISH CRUISERS
NEW THROUGH
RAILWAY SERVICE
London, Sept. 26:���Many serious engagements have been
fought during the week in the French theater of war, but without
decisive effect. On the left wing, opposing the western portion of
the enemy's forces, the Allies have begun a general action of great
violence, which is being fought between the rivers Somme and
Oise, the hardest fighting being around Tergnier and St. Quentin.
The Allies have repulsed the German cavalry near Ham, and are
holding Rethonvillers, Fresnieres and Ribscourt. The Allies'
center has made progress to the east of Rheims. Battle is raging
along the river Meuse.
Later despatches state that the British and French forces have
caused the strongly reinforced western wing of the Germans to
reel backwards near St. Quentin in the struggle of Thursday and
Friday, driving the enemy's line of communication towards the
Belgian frontier.
The great plain to the east of Verdun is strewn with ten thousand dead and fifteen thousand wounded Germans, the result of
repeated repulses sustained by the Germans in their incessant advances on the Allies' entrenched position.
Fresh British troops are being constantly landed in France.
Some have already reached the firing line.
Snowstorms have caused a lull in the conflict between Russians
and Germans on the Prussian frontier. To the south, Russian
armies are now marching on Breslau and Cracow. On their most
advanced line extending from Cracow to the Baltic, the Russians
have a million men. Coming from Warsaw, behind these forceB,
Is a second line of over two million soldiers.
Repulsed many times at Sadova, on the Vistula, the Russians
fought for seven days. Finally their artillery found the range, and
the enemy's position was carried, leading to the occupation of the
important fort of Jaroslav.
Bordeaux reports that the Germans have resumed the
bombardment of Rheims cathedral.
Sir Stanley Buckmaster has been appointed press censor, F. E.
Smith, M. P., having been ordered to the front.
Lieut. Collett, the British aviator who dropped bombs on the
Dusseldorf Zeppelin sheds, is a Canadian.
The British steamer Indian Prince was sunk off the coast of
Brazil by the Kron Prince Wilhelm.   The crew was saved.
A Bordeaux despatch says General Stenger, of the 53rd
German infantry brigade, has issued orders for the killing of all
prisoners and wounded.
An Australian force has occupied the capital of German New
Guinea. The armed German forces, concentrated at Herthertschohe,
were wiped out.
The French fleet bombarded and occupied Lissau, the Austrian
port of Dalmatia, hoisting the British and French flags.
Survivors of the three British cruisers lost in the North Sea
number 839.   Fourteen hundred were lost.
Zeppelins dropped three bombs on Ostend, doing considerable
damage,	
Ottawa, Sept, 26:���The departure of the Canadian
expeditionary force from Valcartier on Tuesday is confirmed
THE MINER'S TELEGRAPHIC BULLETINS TELL STORY OF GREAT WAR DAY BY DAY
The new through passenger
service between Edmonton and
Prince Rupert is arranged as
follows:���Trains leave Edmonton
at 9:15 p. m. on Sunday and Tuesday, reaching Hazelton at 10:52
a. m. and Prince Rupert at 6
p. m. Tuesday and Thursday. In
the opposite direction trains will
leave Prince Rupert 10 a. m.
Wednesday and Saturday, arriving Hazelton 5:18 p. m. and
reaching Edmonton 8 a. m Friday and Monday.
Good progress is being made
with the construction of the big
Grand Trunk Pacific Dry Dock at
Prince Rupert. This dock, costing $3,000,000, will have an
important national value, as it
will be able to handle the largest
vessels, either naval or mercan
tile, afloat on the Pacific Ocean.
Firemen Do Good Work
There were two fire alarms this
week. At noon on Monday a
small blaze at the McDougall
residence wasquickly extinguished, and on Tuesday evening the
brigade was called out for a fire
which started in the rear of the
drugstore. The flames had secured a good start and looked
dangerous, but the uptown chemical engine was quickly on hand
and Fire Chief Sargent had the
blaze extinguished within a few
minuteB.
London, Sept. 21:���The great battle in France continues without definite result. In a violent engagement near Soissons, yesterday, a German force gained some ground, which was later retaken
by the Allies. The Allies' center is still the pivot of the enemy's
operations. It is believed the British and French forces are now
making an extensive movement in development of their plans.
Without confirmation, it is reported that the second British
army, including the Indian contingent, is now in Belgium, to cut
off the German retreat. Another report stales that 200,000 Russians
are near the Franco-Belgian border.
The official report on last Friday's fighting states that the
Allies made a slight advance, capturing many German prisoners.
Several counter attacks were repulsed, with severe loss to the
enemy.
An engagement at Noyons, on Saturday night, became a hand-
to-hand battle in a severe storm.
As a result of the German bombardment of the cathedral at
Rheims, a large part of that unfortified city is now in flames. It is
doubtful if it can be saved.
In Austria, the Russians are now bombarding the fortified
city of Przemysl. Other Russian armies are again advancing on
Germany. The Austrian army again suffered a severe loss in an
engagement near Novipazar, where twenty thousand were repulsed
by the Servians.
The German cruiser Konigsberg yesterday came upon the
British light cruiser Pegasus, while the latter was overhauling her
machinery in Zanzibar harbor. The Pegasus was completely disabled, her loss being heavy.
The Cunard liner Carmania, now an auxiliary cruiser, yesterday
attacked and sunk a German armed merchant cruiser, believed to
be the Berlin, off the east coast of South America. There were
few German survivors. The Carmania lost nine killed and twenty-
six wounded.
The Japanese defeated a large German force on Friday, thirty
miles north of Kiau Chau.
London, Sept. 22:���While there has been no decisive result of
the battle which has been in progress for several days, last night's
despatches indicate that the Germans continue their retreat, and
are now nearing the border. It is reported that Berlin has ordered
the main German force back, to protect the German frontier,
leaving some 200,000 troops to defend fortified lines and cover the
retirement. After severe fighting, the enemy has been pressed
back another ten miles in the last two days. Losses on both sides
have been considerable.
Incessant cold rains have added to the discomfort of the troops.
The Kaiser is In Luxemburg, quartered in the German legation, which is surrounded by troops and guarded by aeroplanes to
prevent attack by French aviators. The Kaiser's fourth son is
wounded, having been shot in the arm at the battle of Marne.
Intense indignation has been caused in Paris by the German
action in destroying the (.athedral and other historic buildings at
Rheims.
A great part of Belgium is reported to have been flooded, rendering extensive military operations impossible.
A large Austrian force is said to be in the region  about
Brussels, the German army in Belgium having been withdrawn io
the French and Russian frontiers.
Jules Vedrines, the noted French aviator, fought a duel in midair with a German airman.   The latter was killed.
In the last three days the Russians are reported to have captured an additional 15,000 Austrian soldiers in Galicia, with a large
number of guns and a supply of ammunition.
Japanese aviators, armed with bombs, have destroyed two
important forts at Tsing Tau, the German port of Kiau Chau.
Ottawa, Sept. 22:���Premier Borden's visit of inspection to
Valcartier closed yesterday. He was greatly pleased, and advised
that every man medically fit for service should be sent to the front
This probably means that the first Canadian expeditionary force
will consist of 30,000 men. The contingent will sail soon, but th.
date has not been announced. The men come from every part ol
Canada, one making his way from the Arctic circle beyond Great
Bear lake, to enlist.	
London, Sept. 23:���Three British armored cruisers, the Abouk-
ir, Hogue and Cressy, were sunk in the North Sea by German
submarines. The total loss of life is not yet known. While the
date and place have not been given, the fight is supposed to have
taken place near Heligoland. Survivors at Ymuiden, Holland,
last night stated that five submarines made an attack on the
Aboukir, which was sinking when the other cruisers drew in to
rescue the crew. Both were torpedoed. Two of the submarines
were sunk.
The cruisers were sister ships, of a comparatively obsolete type,
their numbers being 240, 241 and 243 in the effective list. It is
unofficially stated that each carried about 750 men. So far, il
appears that at least 700 were saved.
In France the situation is little changed, although the Allic s'
line is reported to have made an important advance. French
forces are attacking the German right at St. Quentin. On Monday night no respite was given the German armies entrenched on a
ninety-mile front along the Oise and Aisne and extending into the
Woevre district. The batteries of the Allies never entirely ceased
firing all night.
Speaking of peace rumors, Hon. Winston Churchill said the
vague talk from German sources was evidently insincere. Peace
with the German people would be arranged in good time, but there
would be no peace with Prussian militarism short of the grave.
A hundred thousand people gathered in front of the British
embassy at Rome and cheered Great Britain as the friend of Italy.
There is much agitation in favor of the Allies.
The Britisli steamer Belgian King has been sunk, probably by
a mine.   Twenty-two were drowned.
The Russians have occupied the fortified Austrian position at
Jaroslav, an important railway center.
A Rome despatch says Servian and Montenegrin forces have
occupied Sarajevo, in the Austrian province of Bosnia. The city
was abandoned by the Austrians after an overwhelming defeat'
Another complete defeat is reported to have been sustained by the
Austrians near Krupina, on the Drina river. The Austrian forces
numbered 160,000.
Basle reports that rioting is of daily occurrence in Vienna and

Tentative peace talk in Berlin is generally regarded as insincere. The Allies have hound themselves to continue the war until the menace of Prussian militarism is eliminated fromthe world's
politics.
The German semiofficial peace suggestions have been received
here with an absolute negative, says a London despatch. We do
not believe in their sincerity and even if sincere, they are impossible. Britain feels that a uigantic plot against the world and all
we hold dear has been revealed. It became known prematurely,
ami despite remorselessness and barbarity unequalled in modern
times, it has failed and already its perpetrators realize their essential failure. Things can never again be the same. Britain will
make no peace until the power of German militarism is broken and
the criminals who have destroyed the homes of our Belgian and
French allies have been fully punished, civilization placed on a
basis of safety and the world ensured airainst the repetitions of
such attacks. "Never again" is our motto. The British people
are content to continue the war for six years, and, if necessary,
for six years after that. They realize the tremendous cost of even
a uniformly victorious war, and are prepared to pay it. The possibilities that the campaign may come to ourown doors only stiffens
our resolution and strengthens our purpose. The greater the danger, the more ne"d to end it. We are united, single-minded and
single-willed, and we are going to win.

During late years the tremen

the engineer has been forced to

before any interest is taken in a

enormous deposits has been
known for years, only no one
knew how to make a profit out
of them until Mr. Jackling showed the way, and now that they
have become such a success, the
great mining companies are
scouring the world to find similar
conditions, where they can rehabilitate some [tast failure. But
most of these things are taken

Infernally lucky, the only way

who has the individuality to steer
away from the crowd, to use the j
It is almost impossible to persuade one of the big mining companies to risk a small sum upon
an absolutely raw prospect; they
would rather let the layman take
the gamble, and then pay him a
higher price if he is successful.
He is not going to work that way
much longer, however; already
there are signs that the enterprising few are undertaking this
preliminary work, and when they
lind it they keep it without
bothering the bigger companies.
As everyone knows, prospecting is practically at a standstill
at present. Why is it that the
large companies do not use some
of their trained field engineers in
this work and risk small sums
upon promising lookingprospects?
It would not require a great deal
of money to do considerable preliminary work, and tlie chances
are lhat something would be developed in the course of time.
After years of labor along the
established lines, I am practically
convinced that this prospect
field offers the best solution of
the mining problem today. To
be sure, it means that we must
become speculators again to a
certain extent, but with our present geological knowledge the
risk is much less than it was in
the early days when it was all
a grand big guess; and there are
districts in this and other
countries that are well worth
spending some money on before
condemningthem entirely.���A. P.

Cobalt Recovers
The recovery from the shock
of the war news in the Cobalt
camp is shown by the increasing
confidence that a market will be
found. The Beaver mill which
has reopened will employ a few
men. The Beaver shut down
about a week ago. The southeast Coleman property has a
large dump, and, with its capacity of 100 tons a day, the mill
can be kept going for quite a
long while without continuing
the underground work. The
Buffalo has three drills working
underground. A final clean-up
is being made at the high-grade
mill, when it will closedown. It
is generally felt that as regards
the mining industry in Cobalt the
worst is definitely over, and that
some of the producing mines
that are now closed down will be
opened again within the next
month.
Few Mines Closed
New Denver, Sept. 20:-The
Ruth-Hope at Sandon is stil running, with seventeen men on the
payroll, and will not close down.
Other properties being worked
in the vicinity of Sandon are the
Surprise, Noble Five, Payne and
two leases on the Reco. Development is also bring done on a
number of claims in a small way.
The Capella, Apex and California, near New Denver, are working small forces, and on Four
mile the only shut down is the
Van-Roi. The Standard, Hewitt
and also a numeer of small outfits are working. The number
of men let out in the Slocan, owing to the war is not more than
two hundred.

Berlin. Shops in the poorer quarters are being looted for food.
Many women as well as men have been shot down in efforts to
quell the disturbances. The German war loan is not yet subscribed.
Efforts are being made to obtain assistance from Italian and Swiss
bankets.
A despatch from  Sydney says the wireless station at Nauru,
the  last island  in  the Pacific  held by  the Germans
destroyed.
It is alleged in Ostend that Bavarian troops threaten to mutiny.
Serious disputes have occurred between Prussian and Bavarian
forces occupying- Brussels. The latter bitterly resent the defilement by Prussians of portraits of the Belgian Queen, who was a
Bavarian princess.
London, Sept.. 2.'S: A decisive baltle rages along the Aisne
river. The British have succeeded in turning the German line
south of Si. Quenlin and Peronne. As a climax of their bombardment, the British made a desperate bayonet charge, capturing nine
miles of trenches filled with wounded and dead.
While the artillery raged, scout aeroplanes gave the British
(runners the enemy's range so accurately that shells burst directly
over the trenches jammed with waiting Germans, followed by the
Brilish rush, which swept all before them. The capture of this
position gives the British a strong strategic foothold, commanding
the country for miles. It is believed the enemy will soon be entirely driven from the neighborhood of St. Quentin.
The Russian capture of Jaroslav, the Austrian fortified city
and railway center, is a highly important one. Between August
10 and September 14 the Russians have taken seven flags, over six
hundred guns, forty machine guns, eight hundred cases of ammunition, one general, 440 officers and 03,000 soldiers, all in Galicia.
The Servians continue to meet with success in Austria.
Barlin admits losses to date of 63,400 and the deaths of generals Von Wroohem and Von Arbour.

Speaking yesterday at the Trades and Labor convention at St.

Canadian soldiers sailed for the seat of war on Tuesday. This is
the only despatch permitted to come over the wires regarding the
movements of the expeditionary force, Ottawa making no announcement.
London, Sept. 24: Official reports from Paris are to the effect
that the Allies' left wing, of which the British army is the main
body, has again advanced, occupying Peronne after heavy fighting,
in which the famous Prussian guards proved unable to withstand
the pressure of the British soldiers. Heavy fighting occurs along
the Meuse, the Allies alternately retiring and advancing.
Paris believes the Battle of Aisne will be decided within a few
days, military authorities stating that the enemy's center must
retire if the right is pushed back much  further by the Allies' left
German forces are feverishly entrenching along their line of
communication in Belgium, evidently to secure their retreat if the
Allies succeed.
A Paris despatch from Petrograd says the German forces
which drove General Renneiikampl's Russians back, have now suffered a great defeat at Subi. The Russians have occupied Soldau.
on the Polish frontier of East Prussia. The Germans are evacuating East Prussia, to reinforce their line from Thorn, in West
Prussia, to Kalisz, in Russian Poland.
Belgians are successful in a number of engagements at points
south ol'Antwerp. At one place (name censored) a German force
ol several thousand was routed, many being killed and wounded,
while the Belgians captured a larger number of prisoners than
they have ever before taken in a single engagement.
The effect on war transportation of the Russian occupation of
Galicia is likely to be important, as the capture of the oilfields gives
the Tsar control of Europe's gasoline supply. Great quantities of
gasoline are required for army motor cars and trucks.
A Calcutta despatch says the German cruiser Emden, which
has been harrying British ships in the Bay of Bengal, fired nine
shells into the city of Madras, India, doing little damage. Three
Indians were killed. The fort guns replied, und the Emden extinguished her lights and sailed away.
A sensation was caused by the successful raid by British
aeroplanes on the Zeppelin sheds at Dusseldorf, Germany. The
aviators dropped three bombs, doing considerable damage. A
similar attack on the Cologne Zeppelins failed, owing to a heavy
m st. All the force returned safely. The public is elated over the
e .ploit.
Three Kalian torpedo boats and one destroyer were sunk off
the Dalmatian coast by Austrian mines.
Another Grimsby trawler was blown up by a German mine in
