River & Athabasca railroad, who
are now here, state that reconnaissance surveys for the line
to the Groundhog coal fields and
Peace river are half completed.
Three survey parties are working
in the field. AU survey data

NO DECISIVE ENGAGEMENT YET REPORTED
GREATEST ARMIES OF HISTORY IN BATTLE ARRAY
ON EUROPEAN FRONTIERS-WAR DESPATCHES OF WEEK
London, Aug. 15:���British war correspondents confirm the reports of serious reverses to the German armies on the Belgian and
French frontiers, and the great advance of Russian troops. The
Czar's armies are now mobilized, two million being disposed on the
German and Austrian frontiers and half a million on the Turkish
and Roumanian frontiers, while three million troops are held in
reserve.
No decisive engagement has been fought.
Field Marshal Sir John French, in command of the British
army, has joined the French field marshal at the headquarters of
the latter.
The Belgian victory at Haelen has blocked the German advance
on Brussels. The defenders of the forts at Liege will blow them
up rather than surrender to the Germans. The French forces
entered Belgium, advancing beyond Namur to meet the German
army.
The two German cruisers driven into the Dardanelles have been
purchased by Turkey for a sum said to be twenty million dollars,
to forestall their capture. Although the cruisers cannot be used in
the war, the allies will nulify Turkey's action, and have presented
an ultimatum to the Sultan's government on the subject.
An Austrian steamship was blown up by striking a mine off
Lussin Island, on the Dalmatian coast. One hundred and fifty
passengers were killed or drowned.
It is reported that Lord Kitchener made the statement that the
war would last eighteen months. Those who are well informed
do not believe that the war minister made any such prediction.
Vancouver, Aug. 15:���A despatch last night stated that an
attempt had been made to destroy the wireless station at Port
Arthur, Ont.
A report that the German cruisers Leipzig and Nurnberg are
steaming north to attack British shipping off Cape Flattery is not
credited in official circles. The Canadian war vessels are at Esquimalt, in readiness for service.
THE MINER'S WAR BULLETINS
Surveyors Return
Bob McDonald and E. Kelly
returned on Wednesday from a
trip to Groundhog. They accompanied F. P. Wilson and
Joseph Gilbert, two surveyors
engaged in securing data for the
P. P. R. & A. railway. Surveys
of the Anthony, Panorama and
Currier creek passes were secured. The engineers declare
the conditions for railroad building very favorable.
Labor Day Picnic
Arrangements are now being
made for the holding of the annual picnic of the Skeena district Conservative association at
Hazelton on Labor Day, Sept. 7.
A strong committee has the affair in hand, and Hazelton's
visitors will be shown a good
time.
P. G. E. Will Continue
Vancouver, Aug. 15:���It is announced that the work of construction on the Pacific Great
Eastern will continue, notwithstanding the war.
Bert Schooling, road foreman

some days under treatment for
rheumatism.
terday destroyed many homes,
the Alexandra hotel and two
stores at South Wellington, on
Vancouver Island. Three hundred and fifty persons are home-
Austria has not yet declared war on Great Britain. Her inactivity leads to the belief that the would gladly back out of the conflict. This belief is strengthened by the report that Austria has
refused Germany's request for action against Britain by the Aus-
triali fleet.
Vancouver, Aug. 10:���Alarm has been felt in Ottawa over the
report that the Rainbow had been in action off the California
coast. There was no truth in the rumor. The Rainbow is now off
the Lower California coast, to rescue the crews of the Shearwater
and Algenne, reported captured by the German cruisers Leipzig
and Nurnberg. The newly-acquired submarines are still at Esquimalt.
London, Aug. 11:���It is estimated that there are now 900,000
German troops massed on the Belgian and French frontiers. The
allied French, Belgian and British armies have a larger number,
with the added advantage of many miles of modern fortifications.
It is expected that a great battle will be fought within ten days.
Great Britain has now over half a million men underarms, and
is rushing troops to France.
A Russian army of 300,000 has begun an invasion of Austria.
Austrian and German armies, in combination, have forced the
French to fall back in Alsace.
At Liege the Belgians are still holding the German invaders at
bay. Despatches are unanimous in describing the repulse of the
Germans as a scene of carnage. German prisoners say their officers
believed their sole task was to pour in a continuous fire, which
would wipe out all opposition to advance. The German soldiers
are gloomy and bewildered. Those captured in France and Belgium say the German commissariat is in a serious condition, the
army being short of food for men and horses.
There are indications that Japan will Boon declare war on Germany.
Relations between Austria and Italy are seriously strained,
The Austriang are reported to have been driven out of Servia.
Servian and Montenegrin troops have captured an Austrian frontier
town;
MORRIS SENT FOR TRIAL
Murderous Negro Admit* Guilt, at Preliminary Hearing���Fired Five Shots
At   Rod.   McDonald
The preliminary trial of Sam
Morris, the negro charged with
shooting Rod. McDonald, a G. T.
P. section foreman, was held before Magistrate Hoskins on Tuesday and Wednesday. The evidence showed that the prisoner
fired five shots at McDonald, several of them taking effect. Morris made a statement, virtually
acknowledging his guilt. He
was committed for trial for shooting with intent to murder.

submission of Belgium and the support of Italy.' It is predicted
that Germany will be crushed before the end of September, or
much sooner, if the revolution which now threatens the country becomes a fact.
Vancouver, Aug. 11:���Rumors of disaster to the Rainbow have
been disposed of by a despatch from Commander Hose. The

The utterances of Sir Richard McBride are always worthy of
serious attention, and the people of British Columbia may well heed
the premier's remarks in a recent pronouncement concerning present conditions in the province, as affected by the war. Sir Richard
said:
"You may quote me as saying that in my judgment there is
nothing in the present situation, nor in possible future developments, which justify any alarm being felt by the people of this
province, and particularly the business communities, as to the permanency of their positions as citizens, and property interests.
"We are passing through a testing period. Let us be calm, as
we are courageous and confident.
"I take the view that it behooves every one of us to be considerate of the position of his neighbor at this crisis, ln a thousand
ways embarrassments involving pecuniary relations may ensue for
a time, but this only imposes upon us the obligation to devise a
thousand ways for allaying these embarrassments.
" It would be as unpatriotic as it would be foolish and unwarranted for each individual at this time to act the part of a self seeking
opportunist. Most of us are by necessity non-combatants; but we
must see to it that we acquit ourselves like men in the peaceful
paths of good citizenship."
No permanent decline in mining is possible. The world must
have metals, and as time goes on
and civilization advances, there
will be a greater and more insistent demand for the product
of our mines. There may be
temporary stagnation in the mining industry, but a reaction is
inevitable, and nothing is more
certain than that every prospect
which has a lighting chance will
find a market.- Chalcopyrite.

Copper Mining
The mists of antiquity obscure
the discovery of copper, but the
metal and its alloy, bronze, were
of the entire world, were in the
bronze and stone ages, when discovered by Columbus in the fifteenth century, at a period when
known  at  a period so remote as jthe civilized   peoples of Europe
to antedate the   beginnings   of had left the bronze age two thous-
history. Possibly gold, which occurs native, was discovered before
copper, but the uses of gold in
pre-historic times seem to have
been purely ornamental, while
those of copper, and its alloy,
bronze, were utilitarian as well
as ornamental, from their discovery.
According to the latest historical investigations, copper was in
general use in Egypt long before
the time of Menes, who reigned
about 5,500 B.C. Bronze was in
very early use in Egypt, for the
making of weapons and tools,
and the use of bronze is mentioned in inscriptions antedating the
great pyramids. As early as
2000 B.C., copper seems to have
been the monetary basis of Egypt,
and brQiize was in use for armor
and weapons, artizans' tools,
occasional farm implements,
household utensils, nails, locks,
butts, hardware for chariots and
bjats, and for jewelry and other
decorative purposes. The most
common variety of bronze in use
in ancient Egypt, as determined
by modern assays, contained respectively, 85 per cent copper and
15 per cent tin, and 88 per cent
copper and 12 per cent tin, while
bronze used for weapons and
cutting tools, contained 94 per
cent copper, 5.9 per cent tin, and
0.1 per cent iron, the iron probably having been included as an
impurity, and not through design.
Spain has been furnishing copper to the world for three thousand years, and remains one of
the   principal   sources   of    the
and years behind.
Feeding John Bull
The provisioning of the British
Isles is one of the marvels of the
world. The foreign produce imported is by far the largest item
in the national food bill. It is
imported from practically every
country on the globe and totals
$1,375,000,000 a year, rather less
than a third of which is credited
to British oversea possessions.
The largest individual contribution, $175,000,000 worth of
food, comes from Argentina. Of
other countries outside of Europe
the United States comes next,
with about $10,000,000 less, followed by India, with $125,000,000;
Canada with $100,000,000; Australia, with $70,000,000; New
Zealand, with $50,000,000, and
so on through a list of 80 or 90
separate countries down to Afghanistan's modest contribution
of $3,180 worth of dried  raisins.

lhe bulk of the world's copper
supply comes from sulphide ores,
and while leaching processes are
used to a considerable extent,
the far greater part of the sulphide ores is reduced by heat
alone. Unless pyritic or semi-
pyritic smelling be employed, it
is desirable that as much as possible of the sulphur be eliminated before the ore goes to the
smelter. Preliminary roasting
or calcining may be done in the
open air, or by heap roasting,
or by roasting in stall, shaft, or
kiln furnaces. The roasting of
sulphide ores may be reducing,
or merely oxidizing in nature.
The calcination of copper ores is
a simple process in theory, but
in practice requires nice discrimination and care to secure the
best results, owing to the varying proportions of copper, iron,
sulphur and other elements found
in the raw ores. The skill with
which the calcining is done greatly affects the success and cost of
the future processes of reduction.
As the combinations of ore vary
greatly in different districts, the
practice also varies to a considerable extent, and the best practice
for the calcination of a given ore
is determined, first by theory,
and secondly by actual work.

Skeena River Fruits
A. S. (.ray, the Cedarvale
fruit rancher, who was in Hazelton a day or two ago, reports an
exceptionally good crop of small
fruits along the Skeena. Mr.
Nelson, a Vancouver fruit grower and nurseryman, who visited
Cedarvale last week, expressed
astonishment at the remarkable
growth of fruit trees, saying
that Mr. Gray's currant bushes
excelled anything he had seen in
the south. He bought a large
number of cuttings to send to
Vancouver.
Rains in July, when the fruit
was ripening, had splendid effect
on the crop.
Mr. Gray suggests the establishment of a canning factory at
Hazelton, and says Skeena soil
will produce $600 worth of small
fruits to the acre if such a market is provided.

London, Aug. 13:���British control of the trade routes in all
seas has been established and is daily growing stronger. Wheat
and provision prices in Great Britain are already falling. Merchant
ships are now sailing on the London-Copenhagen run, which implies that most of the German fleet is bottled up in the lower Baltic and Kiel.
A German advance on Brussels is believed to be imminent.
The advancing Germans were defeated at Haelen, near Diest,
with a loss of two thousand killed and wounded. The German loss
in the defeat at Muelhausen is reported to be between eight and
ten thousand. The losses of the allies were also considerable. The
Liege forts are slill holding out. Many more prisoners have been
taken on both sides. The great battle looked for this week seems
some days distant.
The first of the British wounded in the campaign in Belgium
have arrived at Southampton. The number of men or their corps
was not made public.
Brussels reiterates report of disorganization in German commissariat. Many men and horses are reported to be in a starving
condition, being cut off from supplies by the Belgians.
Ottawa, Aug. 13:���The first Canadian contingent to go to the aid
of the Motherland will consist of 22,250 men, and will cost the
Dominion $22,000,000, the pay alone exceeding $10,000,000. Over
100,000 men have already volunteered.
When Parliament meets on Tuesday the government will seek
power to deal in a drastic manner with any person who raises food
prices. Similar action has already been taken by the British government.
Victoria, Aug. 13:���The Rainbow, Shearwater and Algerine
are all safe at Esquimalt. The rescue of the two smaller boats
from Lower California by the Rainbow is regarded as a fine achievement.    They were in the path of of the Liepzig.
The provincial government is sending a hundred thousand
cases of apples to the allied troops.
The G. T. P. steamer Prince George is now at Esquimalt, to be
used, in case of necessity, as a hospital ship.
