News   Of   Development   From
Various Properties in Hazelton District
Alexander Sharp, M. E., left
for Vancouver on Tuesday, after
visiting a number of working
properties. He examined the
Hazelton View and Indian groups
on Rocher de Boule mountain, on
behalf of A. Erskine Smith and
associates. Mr. Sharp was greatly interested in the showings,
and expressed a good opinion of
the veins on Rocher de Boule
mountain. It is believed he will
act as consulting engineer for
the Smith interests in the development of the Hazelton View and
Indian properties.
Mr. Sharp, who has been active
in promoting the interests of
miners whose properties produce
zinc ores, is of the opinion that
better facilities for the treatment
of complex ores will add enormously to the value of the mines
of the Nine-mile section of this
In pursuance of the good work
he is doing for the mining industry of the province, Mr. Sharp
will shortly read a paper before
the Vancouver Chamber of Mines.
It is to be expected he will take
occasion to say a good word for
the Hazelton district.
Reports from the Chicago group
are to the effect that the vein has
been reached in the crosscut tunnel, and that "three shifts are
now engaged in drifting. The
showing is said to be excellent.
Washington: The German reply to President Wilson's note
demanding cessation of illegal
submarine warfare will fill two
newspaper columns. It evades
the issue with the United States,
and officials privately express the
view that its general tenor is unsatisfactory. Nearly all American newspapers agree that the
reply is not acceptable.
The state department announced, after a cabinet meeting, that
no "hasty action" would be taken
and that in view of the length of
the German note and the necessity of digesting it carefully, it
was improbable that any decision
would be reached before next
week. The cabinet was in session
for two hours and a hall, the

He refused to discuss the question.

quantity of spelter (refined zinc)
made at Trail works has been
small. Possibly spelter will be
eventually exported to other
countries by the Consolidated
Co., but its output yet is insufficient to necessitate export of
refined zinc out of, Canada.
Producing Zinc and Sulphur
The installation of the electrolytic-zinc plant at Trail, which
was a good deal of an experiment,
has been accomplished without
the mishaps which usually accompany the establishment of a
new industry of this special character. In connection with the
production of zinc the company,
in making sulphuric acid, is utilizing a by-product, which was
wasted before, and this is said to
be working out satisfactorily.
Incidentally, it may be mentioned that the statement included in a press despatch sent out
from Ottawa on April 11 (when
an announcement was made relative to the intention, conditionally,
to pay a bounty on zinc refined
in Canada), that the Trail smeltery "is now producing considerably more than the Canadian
market can absorb, and is shipping large quantities of refined
zinc both to Great Britain and to
Russia, where it is needed for
munitions manufactures," is not
correct.     Up to the present the
The Rebel Countess
Dublin. May 2:���The Countess
of Markievicz, who commanded
120 rebels in the Royal College of
Surgeons building, surrendered
in dramatic fashion. A white
flag was hoisted and a communication sent to the officer commanding the attacking forces
saying the rebels would surrender
at 11 o'clock. At the appointed
hour, the countess, dressed in
green, marched out, followed by
the rebels walking in twos. She
led her men to the British forces,
saluted the officer in command,
kissed her revolver before surrendering it, and said, "I am
ready". Her followers were then
disarmed and marched under escort to the castle.
German Prisoners Escape

evening, when satisfactory reports were received from the
working committees. An increased attendance is reported, but
there is still room for workers in

feature is the large amount of

additional $50 has been sent to

Those Election Frauds
Victoria, May 4: -Three more

before the election committee
that they had been brought to
Vancouver to vote for M. A.
Macdonald. Proprietors of rooming houses and cafes corroborated
the evidence as to the movemenls
of the Seattle gang in Vancouver.
H. N. Boss, formerly connected
with the government telegraph
service in this district,arrived on
Thursday to take a position in
the office of R. Cunningham &

some months. War conditions

No. 36
In a recent number of the Mining, Engineering and Electrical
Record, of Vancouver, there appeared two articles which may well
be considered and taken to heart by the business men of our coast
cities.    The Record says:
"The bankers of British Columbia are as a rule absolutely
ignorant of the value and extent of the mineral resources of the
province in which they carry on business, and too often they act as
knockers of the mineral industry instead of assisting its scientific
and conservative development. The bankers of Spokane have set
the bankers of British Columbia an object lesson, in that they
co-operated the other day with the business men of that American
city in sending their greetings to the mining men of British
Columbia, and added: 'We acknowledge the great debt our city
owes to the mineral wealth of the province,and we confidently look
forward to another period of activity surpassing those of earlier
days, which made the region famous throughout the civilized
"Spokane has realized what Vancouver and Victoria have not���
that the mineral resources of British Columbia are among the
greatest sources of wealth production. So little is the value of the
mineral industry appreciated in these coast cities that it is a rare
thing to find a business firm willing to spend five cents to promote
an industry which is the backbone of the province which supports
them. Unless the commercial firms of these cities change their
policy,the day is not far distant when they will have to give place
to new commercial organizations that will prove more worthy of
these cities and of the province."
*       *       *
"Addressing the Credit Men of Vancouver, F. M. Black, of
P. Burns & Co., pointed out that the great future of British
Columbia lies in the mineral industry. He condemned the apathy
displayed by the business men of the coast cities towards mining
and reminded his audience that the industry is, in consequence,
being developed almost entirely by outside capital. If this
indifference to mining is persisted in by the business interests of
the province, he told them, the time was not far distant when the
people of British Columbia would become mere hewers of wood and
drawers of water to those who had the foresight and enterprise to
take hold of and develop the mineral resources. Mr. Black is right.
Unfortunately the business men of the coast cities are too often of
narrow view, wanting in public spirit and lamentably ignorant
of the resources of the province in which they do business. What
is worse, they are absolutely indifferent as to the effects of the
development of these resources on the future prosperity of the
. country. We cannot hope for a change for the better until the
business interests get into the hands of men of breadth of view,
true patriotism, knowledge of economics, and a public spirit which
will place the progress and prosperity of the province before
personal selfishness--men who will be ever ready to put their
shoulders to the wheel of progress and help to the utmost of their
resources in the development of the province, with whose prosperity
their business interests are involved; and the general prosperity of
which means the development and substantial growth of the coast
information, instruction and sound
advice appertaining to its title,
"Production and Thrift". Not
alone would the farmer and
breeder be the better for its
study, but every householder,
every citizen, would profit by
following its counsel, which, in a
general sense, is embodied in the
motto that appears on the front
cover, namely:
Produce more and save more;
Make your labor efficient;
Save material from waste;
Spend your money wisely.
