Mining
The Consolidated Mining and
Smelting Company received 8091
tons of ore at its smelter, Trail,
in the first seven days of this
month.	
After a suspension since midwinter forced by weather conditions, the Galena Farm, mine
andmillatSilverton, has resumed
operations. _ Sixty five men have
been employed.
Over 23 tons of. ore, having a
value of $100 to the ton after the
deduction of transportation and
treating charges, have been shipped from the Lead Trust mine,
Boundary district.
The Rambler Cariboo mine in
the Slocan is again shipping ore
to the Trail smelter. The movement of ore was stopped three
months ago, partly on account of
a sriowslide that blocked the railroad from the mine.
Rich deposits of raw soda exist
in East Africa regarding which
little is generally known and
which were undeveloped until
1913 when a company was formed

material into commercial use,
only to have its operation^ interrupted by the outbreak of the
war. Consul Henry P. Starret,
reporting from Mombasa in British East Africa, states that there
is a large deposit of raw crystalline soda at Lake Magadi in the
southern part of the British pro-
te«torate near the frontier of
German East Africa. This lake
has an area of approximately 304
square miles and contains from
50,000,000 to 200,000,000 tons of

contains tables of Western Canada's temperatures and precipitations, an article on the grain

THE GERMAN RETREAT
It would .be a mistake to
minimize the fighting power
of the hun. But on the other hand it is equally erroneous to attribute to him a
mythical power which he
does not possess. There are
people, who in spite of the
recent successes at the front,
are disposed to think there
is "something behind it,"
and seem unable to face the
simple facts. Indeed they
prefer some theory, almost
any theory, that shall be ludicrously inconsistent with
the facts. Military "experts," whose opinions are
flashed all over the world,
profess themselves unable to
understand the German "motive," and grope blindly for
something that shall presently reveal a master stroke of
German genius. That the
Germans withdrew because
they had to withdraw, because the British bombardment became unbearable, is
too plain and straightforward for them. It is as if
they should see a man thrown
out of an upstairs window,
and proceed to ask what
could have been his "motive"
in taking the air in that unconventional way.
The German army leaders,"
of course, have long bamboozled the people of Germany with a view to convincing them that they are unconquerable. Even now, the
German people believe they
are going to win. Every
effort is made to keep them
in ignorance of the real facts
of the case. If correct reports of the world's opinions
with regard to Germany were
set before the misled population, it is surmised that there
would be a general rising before which the Hohenzollern
miscreants would be powerless, and would soon be
brought to the scaffold they
so richly deserve.
We can dismiss the German "motive." The chessboard is in full view, and the
game will go to the hardest
fighters. The "experts', will
tell us that Von Hindenberg
has shortened his line and is
thus economizing his forces,
we may remind ourselves
that precisely the same thing
can be done by the British
and the French. Their lines
can be also shortened, and
their forces economized. It
may be a "long long way to
Tipperary", but our implacable foe is getting grog;
He is within measurable
tance of being knocked out.

In reviewing the recruiting returns of

one is profoundly impressed by the splendid response made by the manhood of
British Columbia in the time of the Empire's need.
This record is indeed one to be proud
of, but there are still a very large number
of eligible men in the Provinee who for
various reasons have been prevented from
doing their duty, and it is to these that
the Officer Commanding No. 19 Company

civil life will be apparent.
The men as recruited will be given a
little preliminary training here and sent
forward in drafts.

do this by helping to make every bit of
