Local and District News Notes
FATAL STRIKE RIOTS
IN SOUTH AFRICA
Mining development around
Babine lake is progressing favorably, according to Charles Newman, the veteran miner, who
was in town on Monday. Mr.
i Newman is developing the Babine
group of five claims, located four
miles south of old Fort Babine.
He has done $3000 of work, in-
clnding 180 feet of tunnelling,
and has a fine showing of copper
pyrites carrying gold and silver.
The vein occurs on a contact of
porphyry and lime, pitching into
the hill at 45 degrees. Assays as
high as $53 have been obtained,
but Mr. Newman says the ore
will average about $28. In places
the ledge shows a width of over
forty feet.

efforts to open up their properties.
One of the most widely known

Before a settlement was reached there occurred fierce and sanguinary conflicts between the
police and the mobs. Early in
the afternoon crowds gathered
in front of the Rand Club and
began to stone it. They disregarded orders to disperse and the
troops fired with deadly effect.
Some of the principal streets
were raked with shrapnel. Ambulances were kept busy, for the
soldiers aimed to kill. Within a
comparatively small area, about
sixty rioters were killed or
wounded. The fighting in other
quarters swelled the casualty list
to considerably over a hundred.
Johannesburg, July 7: ��� Most
of the gold miners who participated in the general strike last
week, which led to the killing
and wounding of a large number
of rioters, resumed work  today.

Adding Millions to
Riches of Canada
Montreal, July 10: ���It is stated
on good financial authority that
$300,000,000 has come into Canada in the last few months
through immigration ��� chiefly
British���and exports, mainly of j
grain. This estimate does not|
include the sale of Canadian se- \
curities. The financial stringency
cry is disappearing in Canada,
Through their London connee-
lions, the Canadian banks are
planning to advance vast sums
for the movement of this season's

believe that plenty of money wil!
be available.
Greeks and Serbs May Unite

ALLEGED PLOT FOR
BURNING OF LONDON
London, July 7:���Following
the statement of the Daily Mail
that militancy had been killed in
England by the "Cat and the
mouse" law, a sensation was
sprung today by the publication
in the Evening Standard of a
story declaring that Scotland
Yard had discovered a plot to
burn London.
According to the alleged plots
for the firing of the city, phosphorous bombs were to be dropped from aeroplanes on the
principal buildings. According
to the story it was planned to
have French aviators fly across
the channel with bombs which
would be furnished them from
London. The plot had advanced
to the point of approaching certain aviators they declared. The
airmen refused to become involved and reported the affair to
Scotland Yard.
According to the reports women
had planted tubes of phosphorous in various sections of the
city in preparation for their demonstration by fire, which was
planned as the crowning effort
of their destructive work.
CONFLICT IS SPREADING
Bulgarians Burn Seven Hundred Imprisoned Servians ��� Fifty Thousand of
Ferdinand's Troops Compelled to
Surrender    Implore Intervention
London, July 11:���Roumania
appears as an active factor in
the Balkan war, her troops invading Bulgaria after a declaration of war against that country.
The main armies of the Greeks
and Servians have combined. It
is thought the Turks may unite
with them in a general attack on
Bulgaria. The conflict is growing hourly fiercer. It is reported that a great battle battle is
raging today at Kustendil. An
Athens report states that fifty
thousand Bulgarians have been
forced to surrender to the allies.
Intervention is still likely, Bulgaria is still imploring the Czar's
good offices.
St. Petersburg, July 10:���The
Czar, at the request of Bulgaria,
will intervene to stop the Balkan
war. France will seek to obtain
the best possible terms for Servia
and Greece. It is the general
expectation that the war will end
within a week.
New School Trustee
The annual school meeting was
held this morning. Dr. H. C.
Wrinch was elected to the vacant
trustee-ship and J. W. Austin
was chosen auditor. The question of a school district was
broached, and a meeting of
citizens called for Tuesday evening, to discuss the matter.
London, July 9: -The country
residence of Sir William Lever,
the "Soap King," in Lancashire,
was burned down yesterday by
suffragettes. Sylvia Pankhurst,
daughter of the militant leader,
was sentenced to three months'
imprisonment for making inflammatory speeches and for the
attempt to raid the official residences of the pfemier and the
chancellor of the exchequer.
London, July 9, -The war between the Balkan nations is
becoming more widespread daily,
und appalling atrocities are reported. Bulgarians imprisoned
seven hundred Serbs in a mosque
and then burned them to death,
the wives and families of many
of the victims witnessing the
horrible spectacle. According to
despatches, fifty thousand lives
have been lost in the fighting of
the last ten days, the casualties
being much greater than in the
former war, when the nations
now fighting each other were
allied against the Turks. It is
stated that the latter are anxious
to establish an alliance with the
Servians and Greeks against the
Bulgarians. In London it is expected that the Great Powers
will take steps towards mediation
or intervention.
Liverpool, July 10:- Mrs. Rig-
( by, a militant suffragette, wife
of a physician, confessed in court

No. 45.
The Omineca Mirer has the largest bona fide circulation of any newspaper in the
Northern  Interior of British Columbia.
Expatiating on the subject of optimism, our namesake of Rossland takes occasion to say a few words for the prospectors of the,
Kootenays, which may well apply to the men who have  found the
rich showings of this district  and  those  who are  now  searching
among the hills for still other leads.     The Miner says:
Every prospector who ever tramped the hills of this glorious
Kootenay was an optimist. There are some of the typical sort in
o ii' midst right now, and, while they have not the price of a meal
in their pockets, they believe in the depths of their hearts that the
prospects they have been nursing for years will yield them millions.
Content to spend nine months in hard work with a hand drill, with
no fare but bacon and flour or such as they can pack upon their
backs, they come to town with enthusiasm oozing out of them. A
little lubricant helps the How at times, but who ever knew these
old characters to back up or for a moment los?e faith in their holdings. Theirs is a splendid example in optimism for some of our
merchants and others who voice their doubts about those who are
striving to develop and produce, no matter in what line. The
Christian religion itself is founded on optimism, as is every other
religion. Omit faith from them and the corner stone is gone.

Good roads have a money value
to every inhabitant of a country,
as well as a social and political
value, and are found to pay
handsome dividends each year.
People generally are beginning to
realize that road building is a
public matter, and that money
wisely expended for this purpose
is sure to return.     It is   worthy
These results are fully substantiated by dynamometer measurements made on the Holyhead
turnpike road in England.
The greatest load which can be
hauled over a road is that which
can be hauled through the worst

It costs one and one-half times
as much to haul over a road having a grade of five per cent., and

BALKAN WAR
London, July 7:���As news of
the last ten days' fighting between the Greeks, Servians and
the Bulgarians begins to filter in
from the front and are checked
up it is apparent that between
30,000 and 40,000 lives have been
sacrificed in battles, by far more
sanguinary than any which occurred in the last Balkan war,
and as yet it is impossible to determine to whom the honors of
war should be credited.
Strict censorship of the news
is maintained, and up to this
date only unconfirmed reports
have been available as to the
actual dead and wounded in the
various engagements. Aside
from the dead and those in hospitals it is known that thousands
have been taken prisoners on all
sides. *
At this time desperate fighting
is reported along the Vardar and
Bregalinitsa Rivers and semi-
j official reports have it that the
I Bulgarians are in the ascendancy
I near these points. The Bulgarians have invaded Belogradchyk,
about forty-five miles northeast
of Nish, Servia's most important
fortified town and at this point
it is reported that the Bulgarians
have captured five guns and
other munitions of war and have
opened the pass to Nish.     No
ews can be obtained of the
strength of the Bulgarian
column.
News of the Greek victories still
continue to pour from Saloniki,
where they are said to have captured sixteen guns from their
enemies at Doiran. There are
8000 wounded in Saloniki alone,
giving mute evidence of the desperate character of the fighting
at that point. Thousands of destitute are making their way into
Saloniki, adding to the horror of
the present situation.

The mobs in the business section

All places of business were
closed and guarded by troops,
while bands of citizens armed

Arising out of the disturbances,
