The Miner was in receipt this

passed next week. The following have sent in their donations
to the fund: Henry Bretzins, Joe
Benson (Stewart. B.C.), Angus
McLean ( S.uithers ). Howard
Guest (Babine Lake). Subscriptions are coming in at a good
rate and this is very encouraging
to the organizers of the fund,
who are extremely gratified at
the support accorded it. All who
knew Jim May, we feel sure,will
send in their contributions, if
they have not already done so,
and as subscriptions are limited
to one dollar, in view of the continual demand for funds for patriotic purposes, further support
to the fund which has as its object the erection of a memorial
over the grave of the popular
old-timer, is hoped for. Send in
your donation today, remember,
die more money obtained, the
handsomer stone will be erected.

An announcement of special interest to mining men throughout
British Columbia is that the smelter at Ladysmith will re-open in
the very near future. The intimation is that it is to be blown
in some time next month. Since
its rehabilitation there has been
a change in the personnel of its
officials. Alterations were made
at considerable cost before the
plant was started up recently,
after having been closed down
for a considerable period.

How long can the man-power
of Germany last? This is the
question which is consuming a
good deal of attention from our
military experts. In view of
Germany's terrific losses in her
recent drives and in those mad
rushes previous to the campaigns
of this year, it is contended that
Germany's supply of fighting
men must be alarmingly deplet
ed. This would appear to be
further substantiated by the reports received from different
theaters. Last week it was
reported from Russia that Germany intends to transfer all her
troops from Russia to the western front. London announced
that several Teuton divisions had
been taken from the Flanders
front to the scene of the offensive operations on the Noyon-
Rheims front, leaving the inference that the German reserve
forces were insufficient. On
Sunday the Austrians commenced
their diive on the Italian front,
from whence it is reported that
no German troops are engaged.
Are these straws indicating the
direction of the wind?
We Heartily Agree
In other days of newspaper
work, in towns of the older sections of the country, paper readers took a more personal interest
in the home town sheet than they
appear to here in the west. At
least their interest, if it exists,
does not manifest itself in the
same way. In the old time,John
Smith was sure to have a letter
to the editor on current topics
every once in a while. Mrs. John
Smith never forgot to have the
visit of a friend from another
community duly chronicled. Bill
Jones was proud to have mention
made of the repainting of his big
red barn. Then there was the
old crack about Ira Brown buying
a buggy and the usual addition
of "Watch out girls", or "Ira
must mean business" or something of that sort. It is a pity
that the neighborhood residents
nowadays do not make a point of
getting into closer sympathy with
their paper. A warm-hearted,
lively town means a paper radiating cheer and neighborly encouragement. If everyone took
the resolve, "Now I must telephone the paper about that item,"
the weekly journal would be ten
times as interesting and helpful.
The readers should remember
that speaking broadly the paper
is theirs, for their making or
their unmaking.

Italians Turn
Tables Brilliantly on Foe
London, June 22:- The Italians
have gained a big victory atNer-
vesa, on the west bank of Ihe
Piave, and are fighting to complete their success,it was learned
from an authoritative source today. The Italians have hurled
the Austrians back at this point,
re-entering Nervesa. They are
now battling to push on to the
river, thus splitting the enemy
forces again and beginning the
first phase of a flanking movement northwestward, to cut off
the Austrians on the Montello.
An Italian force has already divided the enemy forces a few miles
to the southward.
The Austrian drive has practically collapsed, and their initial
gains are slowly crumbling away.
The swelling of the Piave with
the resultant loss of twelve of
their bridges was a serious hardship for the enemy forces operating on the south side of the river
and the Italians took full advantage of their unexpected good
fortune. General Diaz' troops
have divided to attack the armies
of Archduke Joseph and General
VVurm, and are bringing great
pleasure in the hope of recovering all the ground on the right
bank. Cape Silo is now in Italian
hands, while the enemy's total
Rains in the marshes have been
reduced to one-third.
