Greece Is Now, Rendering Aid To Allied Forces There
Plans Extensive Works
For This City In
Wood Work Line
There reached the city last evening from Port Simpson, Mr. and
Mrs. T. M. Michaels and Mr. and Mrs.
F. J. Durling, of Detroit. Messrs Durling and Michaels are interested in
the mills at Port Simpson, which are
being put in shape preparatory to
starting up work there. It has been
necessary to put new posts under the
building and to make general improvements there. Tlie mill, which
was erected by John Plewin some
years ago, has been kept In as goon'
order as possible, but some overhauling Is necessary before starting up.
It Is likely lhat work will begin very
early in the year.
Mr. Durling Is leaving in a day or
two for the east, and will not return
until sometime 'n Ihe new year. Mr.
Michaels will remain In charge of the
undertaking.
Mr. Durling, who has long been Interested in milling works, has visited Alice Arm where quite extensive
timber limits have been secured. He
Is well pleased with the prospects.
It is now contemplated to put in a
mill  at  Alice  Arm,  which  is  looker!
upon as likely to develop into a good
i
mining town of several hundred inhabitants. The timber Ihere Is spruce,
hemlock, cedar and larch, and of
good quality. The site for the mill,
that Is proposen', has been practically
agreed upon.
With respect to Prince Rupert,
however, these men have quite an
extensive plan in view, which will be
carried out they hope as the business
develops.   A box factory is one of the
ends aimed at, provided a suitable
location is obtained. The box making
would, it is explained, take care of
a lot of the lumber that might otherwise be wasted. The demand Is ever
Increasing for this, not only locally,
but also abroad, and where the
tongneing and grooving of narrow
lumber can be done with expedition
so as not to entail too much labor,
there is hela' to be a profit in shipping even to the old country, when
cheap water transportation Is available.
Mr. and Mrs. Durling will, in the
summer, move here and take up their
headquarters in this city, and take
charge of the development work that
is in view.

"The Financial Situation of the British Empire in connection with the

"Our daily expenditure is at present $25,000,000," said Mr. Brand,
"or $9,000,000,000 per annum. Our
normal revenue is $1,000,000,000

which has been in progress in the
Balkans during the past week did no
serious harm, so far as the Allied
forces were concerned. The Bulgarians in their onslaughts confined
themselves to shelling and have

Reinforcements continue to pour
into the Saloniki fortifications, which
are rapidly nearing completion. This
is so evident that many express the
hope that they will be able to test
the strength of these works against
the enemy.
On Greek Frontier.
A violent artillery battle is being
fought, along the Serbo-Greek frontier. According to the despatches received the Bulgar shells are falling
on Greek territory, but they have
done no material damage to Greek
territory.
No Bulgarian nor Teuton soldiers
have crossed the Greek border, but

opening a recruiting station today. He
will use the ground floor of the Little

their training here. Already quite
a few men are waiting to go on the
strength. From today on, Capt.
Scharsmldt will consider all applicants.
On Thursday morning it is expected
that a consignment of uniforms and
supplies will arrive from headquarters at Esquimau. The quarters will
then be fitted up for the accomodation of the men, and within a few
days active drilling will commence.
Capt.   Scharsmldt   expects   Major

MINERAL WEALTH.
The possibilities of British Columbia from a mining standpoint were
set forth by E. A. Ilaggen, editor of
the Mining and Engineering Record,
in an address before the members of
Ihe American Club in Vancouver recently. Some of the facts brought
out by him, having so intricate a relation to the mining in this district
make most encouraging reading locally.
"The United States has always
boasted of their big things," he said,
"but the developments of the past
year have proved that one copper
mine in this Province has assets
which would pay the entire cost of
running the machinery of the United
States Government, including its civil,
army and navy lists for a year and
then have a substantial balance over."
"Another mine has been developed,
the profits on which would entirely
repay the capitalization of the company, amounting to $5,500,000.
"British Columbia now has Ihe two
largest copper.smelters in the British
Empire, and one of its copper mines
ranks among the leading copper
mines of the world. Not only is the
production great, but Ihe Province
has achieved the reputation of producing copper al the lowest cost of
any on the American continent, and
a new discovery is now reported
which bids fair to rival all the discoveries of tbe past.
"Tlie year jusl ended has seen the
Inauguration of arrangements for thc
addition of new mettalurglcal inn'us-
(rl of great Importance namely, the
refining of zinc and the e'ectrolytic
refining of copper.
people of this Province have been absolutely indifferent to the vast natural resources of minerals they possess."
BRITAIN'S   HI HDEN.

ance of $7,000,000,000 must be
raised by loan one way or another.
Canada recently subscribed $50,-
000,11011. How great is our burden
may be realized from 'the fact that
that sum would Inst us 48 hours.
Canada has a population of approximately 8,000,000 people. England'
48,000,000. On n basis of population
to meet the British expenditure, you
would have to raise $.".0,000,000
every 10 days. England's national In-
come is $11,000,000,000 per annum.
The Government is expending $9,-
000,000.000, so you see it is expending practically all the income. With
figures like this it is difficult to pursue the soundest  financial methods.
"The big question is how long can
we do this or can we do it indefinitely? This, we have been often told, is
a war of exhaustion. The vital (thing
is the actual production of things
within the country. A nation that is
self-supporting would never be stopped fighting for want of money, so
long as the people had confidence in
the government ano would take their
I. O. U's. But In buying from abroad
yon must pay in something of real
vaule. We must produce more and
cut down our expenditure.
"Up to the war England's imports
were $75D,000,000 more than exports. The difference is now in excess of $2,000,000,000 a year. This
figure does not take into account government purchases. A rough guess
would put the Government purchases at $1,000,000,000 per annum. We
must meet this difference, and, of
course, it means a great burden to
the British people. We must be self-
sufliclng and what we have to purchase abroad' we must buy from nations that are willing to lend us
money. Our potential resources are
really inexhaustible and we could go
on forever if we can apply them.
"As t0 the question whether or not
Canada can do anything to help, I
realize Canada's difficulties. She has
not our great resource of wealth in
foreign debt. Secondly, her expenditure is growing rapidly and she must
next year meet the great debt of
maintaining her armies. Thirdly, her
wealth. Is not liquid like Great Britain's. Fourthly, you have not developed the machinery of credit to the
extent we have. You have not a central reserve hank, or discount market
or treasury bills system.
"On Ihe olher hand, indications are
i favorable. You are getting a balance
I in your favor on your trade. You are
"The dividends patd by ihe mines
or British Columbia to date for this  Increasing your  liquid  capital.   You
year amount to $2,209,658, bringing
the total dividends paid So Tar hy the
mines of this Province to $27,500,-
000.
"The development of the mining
industry of the Province is, with the
exception of three companies, due entirely     to     American     capital.    The
have greater resources than most of
you suppose. Your loan was a great
success."

mates the force, and the optimism
which permeates the staff, both British and French. Coming away from
a chat with him, one felt to have
taken a quick action tonic, and to be
able to combat the influences here
which (lamp our too few enthusiasms.
He is here for ten days' leave, and
one of the first points to which he alluded was the question of leave for
the men of the rank and file.
"In a short time," he snid, "all the
men of my division will have hud
leave, and Ihe idea is (o continue to
give eight or ten days leave, every
three months. It is found that tho
men are kept fully up to the mark in
every way, when 'hey know that
their dangerous labors will he terminated periodically', and that they
will be able to spend a few days in
London  or  in  the  country."
.lust at the time General Currie
was leaving for his ten nays' leave,
the trenches were getting very hor-
rlble on account of the bad climatic
•conditions. With the experience
gained earlier in Hie war, however—
save in exceptional circumstances,
such as sudden floods and thaws—
they are looking forward to a much
better time than last year. All the experiences and lessons have been turned to account, and the question of the
conditions in the trenches receives
constant care and attention from the
commanding officers
The Canadians concerned in the
dashing action which was the subject of Field-Marshall French's despatch was a small party of the 7th
British Columbians, which' went out
in the Messines district, and forcea' a
front trench of the Germans in brilliant style. The great advantages in
such affairs is, of course, not only
the gaining of a few acres of land
or the capturing of an enemy trench,
though actions of this kind are always undertaken when there is
something definite in view, as for instance, to stop enfilading fire, or to
secure some particularly valuable
higher ground. But quite apart from
any considerations of that kind, they
are instrumental In keeping the men
in high spirits, in increasing their
morale the sense of superiority over
the enemy is emphasized, and the
cheering effect of such an action
spreads to the whole division. On the
enemy the effect is precisely the reverse, so that the gain is two-fold.
Thai there is a desire to emulate
these dashing successes goes without
saying. Tlie Canadians share to the
fn'I the objection to the prevailing
dendlock, ana' desire nothing better
than to move the enemy. The principal complaint is that they cannot
get at them in the old style, though
the men now realize, jusl as much
as do the generals, lhat the system
of fighting has changed, and that il
would be sheer madness to fight in
the open. It is now generally recognized that in Ihe earlier engagements, the heavy losses were really
due to the excessive zeal of tlie Canadians in actions where the men
declined to recognize the Inevitable"!
actions, by the way, which give the
material for the most glorious pages
of British military history. Even now
with all the lessons before them, the
Canadians have to i>" kept In tight
check, for, as one Cnnadinn officer
said, "it is sheer suicide to do the
things thai many Canadian fighting
men demand to no,"
\^ to supplies for the Canadian
soldiers, General Currie said that all
the general needs of the men are fully
provided for In the way of food.
What they do nol get In the ample
rations served out to them, are the
cakes, chocolates, puddings, and
other "til-hits" of which most of tinmen are Inordinately fond. Another
very useful thing at any time, and
particularly in this cold weather, is
meat essences which can he made
warm, and, carried in a Thermos
flask, kept warm for many hours in
the  trenches.
