VOL. V, NO. 8
The Debenture group of four
mineral claims, situated in the
Babine range, some twenty miles
east of Moricetown, has been
bonded to T. H. Rea, of Toronto,
for a good price.
Henry Bretzins and A.H.Morten, the owners of this promising
property, have done considerable
work, disclosing a vein of high
grade silver-lead ore, and 0. T.
Ross, who reported on the claims
for Mr. Rea, was so pleased that
he recommended the purchase of
the group. Mr. Rea made a personal inspection of the showings,
with the resuk that the deal was
closed in Hazelton this week.
The price has not been made
public, but as the purchaser is
well satisfied with his bargain
and Mr. Bretzins says the vendors have no kick coming, it
is evident the deal is a good one.
Mr. Rea. who operated in Ross-
land in the early days of that
camp and has since been prominent and successful in the Porcupine district, has had a wide
experience in mining and his
entry into the local mining field
will be welcomed. He and his
associates are prepared to develop
the Debenture group on an adequate scale, and will inaugurate
work as early as possible in the
A number of other properties
in Omineca district are being
considered by Mr. Rea, and Mr.
Bretzins is now engaged in examining several claims on the
lower Skeena on his behalf.
The same purchasers have acquired the Basin group of six
claims, adjoining the Debenture
on the east and located by A. T.
and W. F. Harrer and 0. T.Ross.
Red Rose Bonded
William MacAdam, formerly a
newspaperman in Sandon, but
now of Edmonton, was here thi s
week to close a deal for the Red
Rose group, one of the best copper properties on Rocher de Boule
mountain. He and his associates
have negotiated a lease and bond,
the terms of which have not been
made public.
Peterson & Ek are the vendors.
An engineer is expected to
arrive next week, to make plans
for work on the Red Rose, which
is to be opened up at once.

No. 8
��� ���
In view of the somewhat garbled reports of the proceedings
before the submarine commission, which have appeared in opposition
newspapers, the following editorial from the Vancouver World, an
independent journal, will be of interest, expressing, as it does,
views which are held by all right thinking people. With regard to
the question of the regular cost of submarines, which the World
assumes should have been taken up more fully by the commissioner,
it may fairly be held that the business of the commission was not
to decide whether the profit made by Paterson and the builders was
excessive or not; but merely to decide whether commissions had
been paid, and to whom.   The World says:
The submarine enquiry at Victoria has excited the political
newspapers to elaborate for their readers unauthorized and
unofficial returns of the Commissioner's findings. The World
eschews this; but there are some points which may be touched on
without pretending to knowledge we do not possess.
One fact seems curious. It is that the commission seemed to
have no information as to the regular cost ol' submarines.
That the amount paid for the vessels was exorbitant seems
fairly clear. Mr. Paterson, of Seattle, who has been defended as a
pro-Ally in sympathy, nevertheless did not allow his sentiments to
curtail his profits on the transaction. He secured $40,000 for
But even admitting this, what does it prove? Simply that Sir
Richard McBriue, like the British Admiralty and War Office wlien
emergencies have faced them in the war, have secured what was
vitally necessary, regardless of price. There is no doubt there was
an "emergency" on this coast twelve months ago; and it was an
em-rg-mcy that simply had to be met. One or two of the enemy's
ships in the North Pacific within easy reach of Victoria altered
even the public taste for dollars. Protection was essential; for a
few shells from German warships thrown into Victoria would have
been more expensive than half-a dozen submarines.
The public mind in Victoria, too, was exercised���in fact it is
not too much to say it was panicky. There were scores of self-
constituted "field-marshals and "admirals" in those days, whose
activity varied inversely as their wisdom or efficiency. These men
made life miserable for everyone in responsible office by their
divided counsels, unnecessary advice and unilluminative criticism.
They broke the health of a dockyard official. In conditions such as
these it must be admitted Sir Richard McBride kept his head,
worked with decision and despatch, and when invited by the naval
authorities, gave his best endeavors to meet an admittedly difficult
situation. He met it, we think, adequately on the whole���more
capable than any of his critics. And the evidence of the enquiry
brought out no fact that touched his personal honor. There is no
gainsaying this, and we can point to it with all the greater force
because we have no political views to uphold and no brief where-
from to speak on behalf of the Premier.

Hints For Fruit-Growers
The following hints by A. H.
Tornlinson, assistant horticulturist, will be of value to many of
of our readers:
Fall Treatment of Fruit
Trees���To aid in the maturing
of the fruit tree wood, I would
recommend tipping the trees.
That is to cut away two or three
inches of the new wood.- Later,
matters may be facilitated by
stripping the tree of its foliage.
In some cases it will be necessary
to support the trees against a
heavy snowfall. Either tie the
branches to a stake or tie the
branches of a tree together.
It will be wise to protect the
trunk from sunscald, etc., and
attacks by rabbits or mice, by
either placing tar or felt paper
around the trunk, or mosquito
bar. Or instead of these a wash is
recommended,   made   of   lime,
kerosene, used in the following
proportions. For a gallon of the
solution use a pound of stone
lime (unslaked if possible). To
this add 2 ozs. of Paris green or
arsenate of lead and a table-
spoonful of carbolic or kerosene.
If only old or slaked lime can be
procured, use hot water. In case
ihe above ingredients are difficult
to procure, use one-quarter pound
of soap instead of arsenate of
lead or Paris green.
A mulch of leaves, etc., is
advisable about the middle of
November until late in the spring,
in the first place to protect the
roots and lower part of the trunk
from frost, and in the spring to
retard the growth of the tree.
If mice are very common a mulch
is not recommended, unless the
trunks are protected.
Speaking of this district, Mr.
Tornlinson said:  "I was pleased
Paris green and crude carbolic or to see the splendid crops and the
splendid condition the fruit trees
appear to be in. For all intending fruit tree planters I would
advise early maturing kinds, as
Yellow Transparent, Duchess,
Red Astrachan, Keswick Codlin,
Liveland Raspberry, and Wealthy
and Hyslop in crabs. For cherries I would recommend Olivet,
Morello and Bing.
"I am hoping to visit the district later and hold meetings in
conjunction with my colleagues."
