London, Nov. 2: ��� "We are
determined to stop at nothing to

made today by Premier Asquith,
in his eagerly awaited-speech on
the war. This is taken as a hint
that, although Lord Derby's plan
is proving successful, the government will, if necessary, resort to

Marshfield, Oregon, Nov. 3:���
The passenger steamer Santa
Clara, plying between Portland
and San Francisco, was wrecked
on South Spit, at the entrance to
Coos Bay, 170 miles south of the
Columbia river bar. Ten bodies
have been recovered and eight
are missing. Life-savers shot a
line to the vessel, which was
half a mile out, and made thrilling rescues through the surf.
The dead were all passengers.
Returning with a very favorable impression of the district,
Wm. Manson, M.L.A. for Skeena,
arrived on Wednesday from Francois and Ootsa lakes, where he
met the settlers in a series of
meetings, at which the needs of
that section were discussed. As
a result of Mr. Manson's visit, a
much-needed ferry is to be placed
on Francois lake, while the road
system of the district is to be
further improved.
Disproving opposition charges
that the lands of the district were
held by speculators, who owed
immense sums on their holdings,
Mr. Manson gave out the following official figures: Area between Francois and Ootsa lakes,
636,800 acres; sold 80,583 acres:
pre-empted, 29,244 acres; war
grants, 2,152 acres; university

publishes a report of the capture
of one of Germany's latest super-
submarines. 250 feet long and
carrying, in addition to torpedo-
tubes, four guns of fairly large
caliber. The submarine was
launched at Stettin a fortnight
ago. The Post states that within a few hours after leaving her
base she was caught "in one of
those traps we have so skilfully
laid for these craft somewhere in
the German Ocean."

Peter Angus, the Kispiox Indian who was recently sentenced
J to four months in jail for break-
[ing a window, appeared before
Judge Young on Thursday on
the more serious charge of housebreaking. He admitted entering
a miner's cabin and stealing
therefrom, and was given a two
years' sentence. The Judge
severely censured the prisoner,
and stated that any future conviction of a similar nature, whether the criminal was white or
Indian, would be even more
severely dealt with.
Red Cross Tea
The next Red Cross tea will be
given by Mrs. McCready and
Mrs. McDougall on Wednesday,
November 10,from 3to5:30p.m.,
at the residence of Mrs. McDougall. Usual charge of 25 cents
each. A glad welcome to all,
gentlemen included. The Red
Cross work needs funds more
than ever.
Five years in the provincial
penitentiary was the sentence
passed by Judge Young on George
Lapointe, who on Thursday pleaded guilty to a charge of wounding
with intent to maim. The victim
was Christine Annot. an imbecile
Indian woman. Twenty witnesses were in attendance, but only
Dr. Wrinch and the injured
woman were called.
In a severe lecture to the prisoner, the judge said that the
charge, but for the successful
efforts of Dr. Wrinch and the
Hospital staff, might well have
been one of murder. After
reading over the depositions and
taking into consideration the plea
of guilty, his honor sentenced
Lapointe to five years' imprisonment.

No. 10
At various times The Miner has taken occasion to criticize the
newspapers of the larger coast cities for failure to recognize that
mining must be one of the greatest factors in the development of
British Columbia, and we have complained, with good reason, of
their seeming indifference to the industry. Having "roasted" our
big contemporaries for their apathy, we are all the more willing to
give them credit when they show a proper sense of their duty to
mining, and we take pleasure in reproducing, in part, an article in
a recent number of the Colonist. That veteran journal, commenting
in a recent issue on various ideas put forward for the encouragement of the mining industry, says:
One of them is that a few business men ought to get together
and form prospecting syndicates with small capital and with the
liability of the individuals strictly limited to the amount of their
subscriptions. Such a syndicate could outfit parties of prospectors,
paying their expenses and a small daily wage, and allowing them a
share in what they might find. He also suggests that syndicates
of this nature might undertake the development of known prospects.
The latter idea has already been advanced by us. We like the first
one very much, even better than the second, but both are good.
Our correspondent says they proved very successful in the early
days of North Australia.
In respect to mining development, the people of this community
are the same as in many other matters. They do not appreciate
the efficacy of co-operation and what can be accomplished by a
combination of effort. We love to talk in millions. Our eyes are
steadily directed to the eastward in the hope of catching a glimpse
of some "capitalist" who will invest his hundreds of thousands
when we are afraid to risk twenty dollars. Let us endeavor to
develop a little of the faith in our country that we try to inspire in
the breasts of people in London or New York,
From the dollars and cents point of view, the syndicate proposition is the best for those who take part in it. A group of men who
have a prospect that has been sufficiently developed to show it
likely to be valuable have something to sell, but the day has passed
when money in any large amount can be got for a mere showing of
ore, no matter what its value is.
The buying of mining shares in a company not yet aware of
what it owns is a gamble pure and simple; but taking shares in a
prospecting or developing syndicate is legitimate business.    There
is always a chance of loss, but so there is in any line of business
There is also a chance of great gain.
There is a great deal of common sense in what the Colonist
says, and we hope it will continue its work along the same line. The
people of the coast cities have had their fill of real estate speculation and we trust they will turn their attention to the older and
more productive business of discovering and developing mines.
The report of the Minister of
Agriculture for Canada for the
year ending March 31st, 1915, ij|
a full and complete story of the J
operations of the Department in !
all its divisions and branches. It,
is consequently a very informative publication. Indeed there is |
a deal in the report of which
every municipal officer as well as
everyone interested in agriculture
and public health might advantageously become possessed. In
particular has this reference to
the regulations relating to tuberculosis, formulated forthe purpose
of ensuring a pure and wholesome
milk supply for cities and towns,
and especially to prevent the sale
of milk from tuberculous cows.
In this connection it might be
mentioned that the Department
undertakes, through the Veterinary Director-General, to aid any
city or town acting under the
regulations to carry them out
and to control bovine tuberculosis.
Owners and managers of cold
storage plants are reminded that

June, 1914, they must give the
public the preference in the use
of refrigerated space and must
not contract to give said space to
one firm to the exclusion of the
general public. Particulars are
given of amendments to the Destructive Insects and Pest Act.
Information is also conveyed
relative to trading with the enemy. Summaries o f reports

From May to October the railways in Ontario, Quebec and
Nova Scotia must run refrigerator
cars weekly or fortnightly for
the carriage of butter at regular
rates and without extra charge
for icing. Commencing from the
middle of June and for eleven
weeks thence, the Department
pays icing charges up to $5 per
car for the conveyance of cheese.
Similar arrangements are in force
for the carriage of fruit from
August 1 to October 1. The
work of the Seed Commissioners'
branch, which gains in importance
yearly, is told in detail, as is that
of the Live Stock  branch, the

Roumania is Friendly
London: It is unofficially reported that the result of a conference here between General
Joffre and the British cabinet was
a decision to save Servia. A
rapprochement between Russia
and Roumania has been effected,
allowing Russian troops to cross

The Balkan Campaign
London : The Anglo-French
troops are firmly establishing
themselves along the southern
end of tho Nish railway and,
crossing into Bulgaria, have occupied the hills surrounding
Strumnitza, although the capture
of that town, which has been
reported, is not officially confirmed. The Servian fortress of
Pirot, described as the key to
Nish, is in the hands of the Bulgarians. The Austro-Germans
advancing from the north are
endeavoring to form a ring a-
round Kraguyevatz, where the
Servian arsenal is situated. Thus

On the Western Front
Paris: German troops in masses made a thoroughly organized
attack last night along a front of
nearly five miles in the Champagne and were subjected to a
serious check with heavy losses,
the French war office announced
today. It is asserted that the
assaulting forces were hurled
back along the entire front of
the  attack,   extending
Petrograd: German plans have
been demoralized in the district
of Riga by the successful submarine campaign conducted in the
Baltic by the British and by the
laying of Russian mine fields,
combining to prevent the transport of supplies, for lack of which
the German forces are suffering.
Servian Hostilities
London: Austro-Germans and
Bulgarians continue their advance
in Servia.
Bulgarian forces have penetrated beyond Veles, but the
Servians still hold the principal
defences near Perlepe. The
evacuation of Monastir by- the
Servians is denied.

Hindenburg's Failure
London: Berlin admits the

evidently given up all present

London: Fighting doggedly,
the Servians are still retreating,
but the Allies are making themselves felt in Macedonia, and the
first British contingent has arrived at Guevegili, forty miles
northwest of Saloniki, and is
operating in conjunction with
the French forces.
The fighting qualities of the
Serb forces are unimpaired. The

gone to the front to encourage
his soldiers with the news that
the French and British are hastening to the rescue.

in good order from Tetovo before

road to Prilip and Monastir, the
Servians are continuing to repel
