Will Endorse Policy
Oi President Wilson
New York, Feb. 8.—The American Republics are endorsing the action taken by President Wilson in
severing relations with Germany. Although the note from Brazil has not
yet been made public in Rio Janerio,
the break in the relations between
the two nations created a deep impression, and the action of the United
States was approved enthusiastically.
Bolivia has decided to support the
action taken by President Wilson
against the German submarine war
of frightfulness.
, {The Cuban Government will also
support President Wilson's policy of
breaking off diplomatic relations with
Germany, on account of the new sub-
lYiparine campaign. Many Cubans, have
already offered their services to the
Government.

Buenos   Aires,   Feb.   8.—Tremen-
jdous  excitement  followed   the  news
| of a German-American break here.
Bombs which* the newspaper offices
exploded from their roofs to call attention to the news posted on their
bulletin boards, called a big crowd
together. This great gathering made
practically no distinction between the
diplomatic break announced by
Washington and a declaration of
war. Between German, pro-Ally and
pro-American, they cheered the announcement   enthusiastically.
Buenos Aires newspapers do not isr
sue "extras"—they blow whistles or
| fire off bombs on the roofs of their
buildings to call the public's attention  tr, big news posted  or  tl"-  bulletin   boards..   There   was   a   perfect
fusillade of bombs and noises today.
It was evident Argentina felt the
i most intense interest in the decision
reached by President Wilson.
i     Foreign   Minister   of   Foreign   Affairs  Murature,  declared:     "I  hape
I the United States will be wise enough
inot to enter actual war, because she
| is the only neutral able to promote a
I firm negotiation of peace and to ar-
i range a fair settlement between bel-
, ligrent  nations."

Attempt Will Be Made To Get Them
Rack To Canada  Before
Rush After War.
London, Feb. 8,—The Canadian
Associated Press has been supplied
from an authoritative source with
figures of the number of relatives
living in England of Canadian solJ
diers who are in training or serving
at the front. According to this tabulation the total number of dependents, thus listed as living in England
is 19,006. This figure of course includes many persons who had never
been in Canada or had lived in the
Dominion but a very short time, and
whose soldier relatives are Old Country men. Nevertheless, it is being
pointed to as, in a certain measure
a j.-stiPeation of efforts which are
expected to be made to get the women and children hack to Canada before the wholesale removal of troops
Ihas  to  be  begun   when  Ihe   war  is
i over.
The tabulation supplied the Cann-
|dlan   Associated   Press  shows   there
tare 945 wives, of Canadian officers.

According to the latest census

TRY A WANT ADVERTISEMENT.
The British Columbia Bureau of
.Mines gives out this Interesting information regarding the production of
copper in the Province:
The amount of copper estimated to
have heen produced during the year
1916 is the largest In the history of
copper mining in the Province of
British Columbia, amounting as it
does to 67,757,075 pounds, worth
$18,429,924; the highest previous
production was made in 1915.
The production as estimated for
1916, compared with that of the previous year, shows an increase In
quantity of 10,838,670 pounds and
In value of $8,594,424, or 87.4 per
cent.
Owing to tho heavy demand for
war purposes, pricipally for brass to
be used in shells, the market price
of copper increased steadily during
the year. The year opened with copper at about 24 cents a pound in
the New York market, and at the end
of December it was 31.9 cents; the
average price for the year was 27.2
cents, as compared with an average
price of 13.6 cents in 1914 and 17.-
275 cents in 1915. This higher market value of the metal assisted materially in raising the value of the
copper produced, thereby greatly
stimulating production.
The large increase in quantity of
copper produced this, year is due to
a greatly increased production from
the Granby Company's Hidden Creek
mine at Anyox, on Observatory In-
lef, to a return to a nearly normal
output from the Boundary district,
and to a nearly doubled production
from the Britannia mine.
The big mine and smelter of the
Granby Company at Anyox was
operated continuously throughout
the year, and the tonnage treated
was gradually Increased, until, at the
end of the year, 2,200 tons a day
was being sm?lted. The Granby Com
pany this year produced from its
mines in Skeena and Boundary 5 9
per cent, of the Province's copper
production.
Another important producer of
copper in the northern portion of the
Province is the Rocher de Boule
mine, near Hazelton. The production
of this mine in 1916 was about 10,-
000 tons, containing over 1,250,000
pounds copper.

"Father, what did you do in the
Great War?''
"I nursed you whl'e your mother
was selling flags."
sure on both sides of the Anchre
brought to bear on the enemy strongholds has resulted in the British forces under General Haig capturing the
town of Grandcourt. This stronghold has resisted the Allies attacks
for a number of weeks,. This will
permit of the British now organizing for an attack on the German position of La Transloy.
The Britisli were also successful
in penetrating the enemy line at La
Basse. Here the casualties to the enemy were large. A number of prisoners were taken and a number killed. At this point the Huns,' trenches
and dug-outs were destroyed.
Artillery actions are reported from
the Relgian  front.
Game Warden Appointed,
the war, which he did not consid-rr
improbable, Canada will have to look
to itself for the supply of cas,h with
which to carry on the different works
that have been started recently, said
Mr. Easton. The United States will
require ail th; available eash to finance its own operations and though
he did not say that any negotiations
that had been in progress between
certain districts in British Columbia
and his firm had been broken off or
that there had been any suspension
of the same, at the same time he considered it right to give this hint.
