London, January 27—Captain
Erdmann of the German armored
cruiser Bluecher, which was sunk
in Sunday's batttle in the North
sea, has been placed among the
wounded, according to the Edinburgh correspondent of the Times
He is suffering from shock.
The Lion and the Tiger were
the only British cruisers that sustained material damage in the
fight, the correspondent adds.
The Lion had her speed reduced,
but that soon can be remided.
The Princess Royal, another of
the British battle cruisers, which
had almost as big a part in the
action, is practically unscathed.
Most of the warships engaged
in the battle returned home Monday and during Monday night, it
was announced here today. The
Lion, the flagship of Sir David
Beatty, was the last of the battle
cruisers to arri ve. She returned
Tuesday morning when the Are-
thusa and the Laurel, among the
light cruisers, some of the destroyers and the battle cruiser
Tiger, Princess Royal, indomitable and New Zealand were already at their moorings.
The Lion arrived at 11 o'clock
and was greeted with vociferous
cheers by the crews of the anchored warships. It was a spontaneous tribute of affection to
Vice-Admiral Beatty and his flagship.
The total number of casualties
among the officers and men reported to the admiralty is:
On the Lion, 17 men wounded;
on the Tiger, one officer and nine
men killed and three officers and
eight men wounded; on the Meteor, four men killed and one
man wounded. It is not believed
that any other casualties occurred.
The Lion was struck by a German she!

The Hague—"We must maintain under the colors our entire
army, for any moment incidents
are possible which may render it
necessary for us to make an appeal to arms." said P. W. A.
Vander Linden, premier of the
Netherlands.
The statement was made in
the second chamber of the Dutch
Parliament when a bill for the
extension of the military service
was being discussed.
The Premier added that the
government could not disclose
the information it possessed concerning the foreign situation, because much of it was based on
confidential documents.
close to the water line
of her forward eom-

: tails of the damages sustained b;>
the Meteor are not announced.
The Scotsman prints accounts
of the battle as gathered from
men engaged in it. They describe it as one of the greatest
struggles in naval history and
thrilling in every respect.
From the position of the German fleet when it was first encountered, these men assumed
that it virtually certain its objective was Newscastle. The
strength of the raiding squadron
was quickly ascertained and as
the entire raiding force sheered
off immediately after it was discovered the chase was a long-one
before the guns began their
work.
For forty minutes the two fleets
raced alon/ over the shortest
route for Heligoland before the
guns did any real damage. Then
the Lion, which was leading,
overhauled the Bluecher and, in
! passing her, gave her a broad-
j side, causing frightful damage.
| The Lion did not wait, however,
but continued in persuit of the
Derflinger, Seydlitz and Moltke.
The Tiger, which came next,
also poured a broadside into the
Bluecher, as did also the Princess
Royal, both of which were speeding on to join in the chase of
the others. It was already evident at this time, according to
the newspaper's informants, that
the Bluecher, abandoned by her
swifter consorts,   was a doomed

London, Jan. 26. —In a letter
andseese(J to the English Zionist
Federation, Dr. Nordau says that
great events are in store for
Judaism and thft they must
maintain the Zionist organization
in good condition so as to be able,
at a given moment, to convince

ship.
After a chase for two hours
the bigger ships were now
being steadily overhauled and
pounded by the British cruisers.
The Tiger. Princess Royal, and
Indomitable were now within
range and great damage is said
to nave been caused on the German battle cruisers. The fire of
the Derfinger and Jeydlity, it is
asserted, grew weaker and weaker as the running fight proceeded
Within half an hours run of
the mine area, the Derflinger
was on fire, and no answering
shots came from her guns.
The thi^d vessel in line is reported to have suffered even
worse. One after another her
guns wer smashed and put out of
action and there was great execution among her^rew. She was
a silent ship, running for shelter
with deck ablaze.
Mr. Green has called to pay'nis
respects to you, sir.
Disappointed again. I thought
he had come to pay me that ten
dollars he owes me.
A Scotish recruit stood on guard
before a colonel's tent, when the
colonel, putting out his head, said
sternly to the new soldier :
"Who are you?"
The recruit grinned and said:
"Fine!   Hoo's yerself?"
The Vicar. "For shame, my
lad! What have those poor little
fish done to be imprisoned upon
the day of rest?"
Tommy. "Tha - that's what
they got for-for chasing worms
on a Sunday, sir."

had to put her pug dog in board

The motor-car was, until recently, a thing unheard of in a
certain part of Ireland. A peasant was very much astonished
one day when he saw one go by
without any visible means of locomotion. His eyes bulged, however, when a motor-cycle followed
closely, and disappeared like a
flash round a bend in the road.
"'Begorra.'j he said, turning
to his son, 'who would have
thought that thing had a colt."
A revival was bein conducted
by a muscular preacher. He was
disturbed by two young men who
scoffed at everything they saw or
heard.
He paused and asked them why
they had attended the meeting.
"We came to see miracles performed." imprudently replied one
of them,
Leaving the pulpit and walking
quietly down the aisle, the minister seized one after the other
by the collar and, as the disappeared out of the door, remarked
"We don't perform miracles
here, but we do cast out devils."
Patrick stood, watching his
father busily engaged hanging
pictures on the plaster walls of
best parlor. Pat watched with
silent admiration as nail after
nail was successfully driven in.
Then the inevitable happened,
Pat's father's thumb mad a den-
in the plaster, and was for a
brief second, hidden entirely
from view by the head of the
h#fty hammer. The flow of
oloquence, that poured from the
father's mouth was a revelation
to the watchful lad. With a
gentle sigh he stole quietly from
the room and went for a stroll.
He had not gone far when he
papptned on the vicar diligently
hammering nails into the rectory
fence.
Patrick immediately became
absorbed in the good man's labors
"You seem interested, my little man. Are you fond of carpentering?" asked the minister.
"No" answered Pat shortly.
"Then why do you stand there
watching me at work?"
"'Cause I want to see what a
parson says when he swipes his
thumb!" answered Patrick, who
was the soul of truth. THE PROSPECTOR

Broken Hill.—I had heard
that John Hunt had acquired
some mineral claims near,
up a small creek, which 1
had expected to examine,
but, as I could find no one
who could show me the locations or give me any definite information about them,
i had to omit visiting them.
Later, however, at Lillooet
I met John Hunt, who with
associates, has acquired the
mineral claims to which I
referred as being located
near "Jack's Landing," and
he informed me that the
property designated as the
Broken Hill group consisted
of six claims, the McLeod,
Mineral Wonder, the Broken
Hill, Silver standard, and
Standard Nos. 1 and 2. These
are situated about two miles
up Sebring creek, which fiows
into Bridge river about a
mile above the bridge near
Jack's Landing; they are at
an elevation of about 4,000
feet and were staked during
1912.
Mr. Hunt described the
trail as being "merely a deer
trail,'' and the worK so far
done as being confined to
stripping the surface, which
work, he said, had exposed
a large mineralized ledge
which could be traced on the
surface for quite a long distance, but, he also said, the
work done was not sufficient
to enable anyone to form
much of an idea as to the
values or material facts. He
showed me some fifteen assay certificates, most of
which, he said, showed the
results from assaying samples of ore that had been
taken by W. C. Thomas, kite
of the Boundary Falls smelter. Tne best values were
shown as $9.60 in gold, 24.12
oz. silver, 5.20 per cent, copper, and decreased by a sliding scale to 30 cents in gold,
silver between 5 and 6 oz.
and  copper down  to  1 per

cent.
Mr. Thomas, in his report
says that the strike of the
vein is east and west, dip
north, into the mountains,
and that the general geological structure is a quartz capping, the hanging-wall granite and lime-shale, and the
foot-wall of quartzite.
I proceeded across the
bridge to the south side of
Bridge river and to the foot
of Mission mountain, which
is now traversed by an excellently graded waggon-
read, about eight miles in
length, replacing the old
steep switchback trail used,
but often "cussed" in past
years. This road brought
me to the Mission Landing,
on the north shore of Seton
lake, about four miles from
its head, where a few Indians
live at the rancherie, which
is very picturesquely situated
on a small flat at the foot of
the mountain,
The grade of the Pacific
Great Eastern along the
shore has obliterated the old
trail to the foot of the 1 ike,
blasted out along the precipitous side of the mountain
which, rises abruptly from the
the water, so that the horses
have to be transported by
steamers down the lake. As
the boat did not stop on that
day, 1 passed the night at a
railway - construction camp
and next morning rode to the
head of the lake, travelling
along an old Indian trail a-
cross the hills a short distance back from the lake,
and took passage from there
on the steamer to the foot of
the lake, distance three and
a half miles from the town
of Lillooet.
From the Mission landing
towards the east the mountains on both sides of the lake
are apparently made up of
greenish and blackish quartz-
ose schists, with dykes of
grey granite, and masses of
quartz-porphyry, so classified
by the late Dr. Geo. M. Dawson.
The grade of the railroad.
for practically the entire distance from the head of Anderson lake to the foot of Seton lake, except across the
short portage between the
two, has been blasted out a-
long the base of the base of
the mountains near the water line, following the sinuosities ot the shore-line, except
at one point on Seton lake
near its head, where a tunnel
has been driven. This is one
of the most* picturesque
pieces of scenery in British
Columbia,
