No. 17
That mining in British Columbia, in common with all other industries throughout the world, has been seriously affected by the
war, is not to be gainsaid. At the same time, the situation as regards the mining industry is not without its redeeming features.
In tt statement just issued by R. F. Tolmie, deputy minister of
mines at Victoria, attention is called to the fact that last month a
record was created at Rossland lor ore shipments. More ore was
3.nl out lrom the camp than ever before in the history of Rossland.
Trade and industrial conditions have, as a consequence, been good
in that section. Four of the furnaces of the Granby Consolidated
Minos smelter at Grand Forks are now in operation, and the other
four will shortly again be put into commission. The shipments of
lead and copper from the Trail smelter have been continued without
a break, bat the plant at Grand Forks was clos.d down the day after
the war began.
In anticipation of the great revival which the mining industry
is certain to experience after the war, and with the prospect that
new ventures will receive more attention then than they have been
able to command for several years, those engaged in the development of British Columbia's mineral resources may look to the future
without serious misgivings, even though present conditions are the
reverse of favorable.

Reichsland, formerly Alsace-
Lorraine ; 14,522 square miles ;
population 1,871.014.
Included in the Empire are the
Hanse Towns, namely Lubeck,
Bremen and Hamburg. These
towns have local self-government
and territorial sovereignity.
It follows from what has been
said above that the term Germany
must be employed when the whole
Empire is meant, and Prussia
when the reference is to that
kingdom only.

THE MINER WAR BULLETINS
(Continued front Page One)
London, Dec. 23- -British warships are now bombarding the
German positions at Zeebrugge and Ileyst, suggesting the com-
mencoment of the expected general operations to clear the Belgian
coast of the enemy. Severe fighting is in progress along the
battlefront in Belgium and France, the Allies continuing to advance
their lines at various points.
An unconfirmed report from Amsterdam says the Germans
have evacuated Ostend and are retreating.
Half a million Kalmucks, members of a nomadic race which has
never been tinder military obligation, have volunteered to serve
Russia in the war, and have been added to the Czar's armies, with
the same organization and privileges as the Cossacks.
New York, Dec. 23:���The New York World has received the
Tollowing Petrograd despatch from General W. A. Soukhomlinoff.
Russian minister of war and adjutant of Czar : " All information
given out by armies ahout their so-called brilliant victory is sheer
invention. The partial displacements nf our army recently effected
between the Vistula and Warthe rivers have, and can have no bearing upon any check that might have been inflicted upon us by the
enemy in course of battle extending over an enormous front. Such
occurrences in either direction are inevitable. Retreat on one point
is compensated for by advance on some other. Thus, in the direction of Warsaw, the enemy is exhausting himself in vain attacks
on our Bzura positions, and uselessly sacrificing considerable numbers of troops. The right hank of the Vistula has been entirely
cleaned up. The enemy after a serious defeat in the region of
Mlawa was thrown back upon his own territory. In south Poland
and eastern Galicia, a German offensive has been stopped absolutely. All efforts of the garrison at Przemysl to force the blockade
have been defeated. Under these circumstances there can be no
question of allowing Warsaw to fail into German hands. The untruths which the German general staff are trying to spread may
find their excuse in necessity of giving heart to German people and
influencing public opinion in neutral countries to favor Germany.
Neither proceeding nor employment are new. The civilized world
has been able to gauge their worth."
London, Ont., Dec. 22:���Evidence of the falsity of the German
claim that the British battleship Thunderer was sunk on Nov. 7. is
furnished in a letter received today by Mrs. W. A. Pinnegar, of 31
Grey St.. from her brother, Robert Dunkley. a mpmberof the crew
of the Thunderer. The letter is dated, H. M. S. Thunderer, Nov.
29. and says nothing about the ship even having struck a mine.
London Dec. 24:���Russian troops in the neighborhood of Tuch-
ow, Galicia, south of Tarnow. on observing an advance of the 26th
Austrian brigade, slipped past on parallel roads and opened fire on
the Austrian rear with machine guns, virtually annihilating the
whole brigade.
During the last two days' fighting in southern Galicia Russians
are reported to have captured over 4,000 prisoners including a
major general and staff, besides three heavy guns and seven machine guns. In this region Russians, it is said, are moving in small
detachments through the mountain passes.
The following official communication was issued in Paris last
evening. Progress made through our attacks between the Meuse
and the forest of Argonne has been almost entirely maintained.
According to bites news, our front in this region has reached the
bnrbed wire entanglements of the enemy and salient angle southwest of Wood Forget! (east of Ottisy) and lined the road leading
to the forest of Boureauilles. There is no other notable incident
to report.
The Daily Telegraph's Athens correspondent in a despatch
claims that he is able to confirm the despatch that Austria has
twice attempted to make peace with Servia, once by direct proposals to the Roumanian government. Servia's reply in both cases
was an emphatic refusal.
Holland is raising a war loan of one hundred and ten million
dollars.
The Emperor of Austria-Hungary is reported to be dying and
has received the last sacrament. Germany is reported to be urging the candidacy of Prince Eitel Frederick, the Kaiser's second
son, for the throne of Hungary.
An order has been issued prohibiting the transfer of British
ships to foreign registry, unless specially permitted.
Aeroplanes are swarming over Belgium, reconnoitering, and
the Allies are scoring slight successees, but the casualty lists, it is
predicted, will be very heavy when known.
The Kaiser is travelling in a special armored train, extending
greetings to the troops.
The French parliament yesterday voted seventeen hundred
million dollars to meet the next six months' expenses.
Great Britain will indemnify the people who suffered from the
recent German naval raid.
REPORT OF COMMISSION
ON AGRICULTURE
The Miner has received, too
late for review in this issue, a
copy of the report presented to
the provincial government by the
agricultural commission, which
was engaged for several months
in an inquiry into conditions and
problems affecting the farming
industry in this province. The
commissioners were most thorough in their work, the result of
which is a voluminous report, in
which the information gathered
by the commission is set forth,
together with recommendations
for parliamentary action.
It is probable that the report
will be made the basis of very
important new legislation for the
benefit of agriculturists, especially those in the newer parts of
the province,
A comprehensive map of the
Peace river or Northern Alberta
j district has been issued by the
railway lands branch of the de-
: partmentof theinterioratOttawa.
Those interested may obtain free
copies of the map on application
to the department named.
The gold industry of the Rand
, is estimated to be  worth half a
million  dollars a day to South
; Africa.
The Middleman
In the production of fundamental wealth, various kinds of
service are required under our
social system. The man who
blasts into the earth to bring out
rare minerals seldom has money
j to pay for tools and his support
! until he gets results. He must
I find a partner who will furnish
the money. This he seldom
I knows how to do. Here, then,
I are required the services of another person, the agent, broker,
or promoter, as the case may be.
The person who brings the blaster and the capitalist together, who
brings capital to opportunity,
that opportunity may be turned
into achievement, that fundamental wealth may be turned to
usefulness, that virginal industries may be established and
developed to the enrichment of
the people, renders as valuable
service in his way as do the others
in theirs. This is a big world,
and its affairs are so diversified
that no one can hope to learn to
do everything well and effectively.
Rossland has produced $55,000-
000 worth of ore in nineteen
years.
