Silver Production
An editorial in the B.C. Mining Exchange and Engineering
News, says:
"Much interest has been caused by the upward trend in the
price of silver which started in
November. There are many causes which are contributing to this
movement, which is of much importance to those engaged in silver mining. Germany. France
and England have issued very
large amounts *of paper money
which has but a small gold security behind it and it is thought
possible that silver bullion reserves will be established with the
view of giving security to this
paper currency as the gold reserves of the combatant countries
will be needed for national finan-
tial security, international adjustments and the settlement of
foreign debts and for the purpose
f steading fluctuating foreign
exchange. .Already the governments of France and England
have coined far greater amounts
of silver since the war commenced than has been their wont in
normal times. Necessity for this
action having arisen from the
presence of large bodies of troops
outside their national boundaries
which could no longer j be conveniently paid in pappr money,
while the necessity of [protecting
the gold coin has already been
referred to. Again the tremendous number of men l»d_r arms
receiving payment at regular intervals from the government has
in itself created a great demand
for more extensive silver coinage
than was necessary under normal
conditions of employment. Another important factor, though
one not yet materialized into actual demand, is the proposed
standardization of the Chinese
coinage, which would, it is estimated, call for over 150 million
ounces of silver. But it Would
seem probable that this matter
would not be carried out in such
a manner as to throw a sudden
strain on the world's silver production, as the Chinese financier
is much too shrewd to risk the
payment of a vastly increased
sum for his silver, by making any
sudden demand for it. Besides
it is probable tha': there must exist in China a huge amount of
slver which it may not be in the
power of the authorities to requisition for the purpose of currency improvements.
Again the decrease in the silver production of Mexico, consequent on the unsettled conditions
existing in that politically ravaged country, ha.i contributed to
the present rise in price of the
white metal, while a decrease in
production in Ontario amounting
to over 20 per cent, during the
first nine months of 1915, for
which the 47c level which ruled
in the begining of the year was
'•'.sponsible, most not be overlooked. On the other hand there
are certain factors which have to
receiye consideration as having a
counteracting influence on those
previously considered, which a
return to normal and peacefulll
conditions will cease to maintain
their present effect of counteact-
ing the rising tendency, In fact
they will, after the war, have a
marked influence in creating a
much greater demand than exists at present. The chief factor
in this direction being the great
decrease in the volume of the sil-
Gleaned
Concerning lumber matters,
there is now issued by the Forest
Branch, Victoria, a periodical entitled "Markets Bulletin," The
first two numbers have already
been circulated, and include
notes on market and other questions of interest to lumber manufacturers.
The Britannia Mines at Howe
Sound have $5,000,000 invested,
their plant having at present
capacity for treating 1800 tons
daily, but early in 1916 the capacity will be increased to 2800
tens daily. The cost of producing copper at the mine' is 7.3
cents per pound, which, with the
exception of the Utah Copper Co
is the lowest production cost of
any copper mine. The output at
present rate is 142,000,000 lbs.
per year. The company exti-
mates that there are over 200
million tons or ore on the property.
A lady who L.~ _ust received
an interesting bit of news said
to her little daughter; "Maggie,
dear, antie has a new baby, and
now mamma is the baby's aunt,
papa is the baby's uncle, and
you are her little cousin."
"Well," said Maggie, wonder-
ingly, "wasn't that arranged
quick."
Farewell Smoker
ver manufacturing trade demand,
for the purpose of production of
articles of use, decoration and
art, This being one of the trades
that has suffered acutely since
the commencement of. the war,
consequently reducing the demand for the white metal from
that quarter to an exceedingly
low ebb. Again the importation
of silver to India during the past
year has also fallen off considerably. The speculative activity of
the native markets being greatly
reduced. India in the ordinary
times imports a great amount of
silver (taking particularly a great
proportion of the Australian output) which after government
coinage demands have been satisfied, finds its way to the interior where each year great amounts
of metal disappear to find a resting place in the treasuries of native princes or go to swell the
total of the fabulous amount
which lie buried in the heart of
native India. Again it must be
bourne in mind, the increased activity in the production of the
electrolytic copper refineries (con
sequent on the war orders) from
which a proportunately large increase in the silver by-product
arrises, tends to offset the decreased production in other quarters which we have noticed above
Taking, however, a general review of the situation, we consider that the indications point to a
firm and advancing silver market, which a termination of hostilities in Europe should tend to
make further pronounced. The
movement is of vital importance
to the silver mining in the province where there are large bodies of low grade ores in such districts as Lardeau, Portland Canal, etc., which even a 70c level
in the price of siver would render profitable to work while the
same level would mean, on an
even average year's production
in British Columbia, an increase
in value of between three-quarters and one million dollars."
A grand smoker was held in
the Santini Hall on Monday evening of this week, the occasion
being the farewell to nine more
Lillooet recruits for His Majesties overseas forces.
The eveiaings proceedings was
opened by a Banjo and Pianoforte selection by Messrs Idiens
and Allen.
Mr. Wm. Adams, who was
chosen chairman for the evening,
then gave a short but appropiate
address. The banjo solo by Mr.
Idiens, which followed, was en-
thuiastically encored.
The speakers for the evening
were: Dr. S. Clarke, Dr. H. A.
Christie,: Messrs Casper Phair,
J. S. Bell, Rev. J. R. Butler, W.
T. Bridge, Wm, Spiller, and
P. Lewis, all of whom wished
the Boys "God speed and a
safe return from their noble mission,"
Dr. Christie, Medical and Recruiting Officer for this district,
spoke of the great necessity of
all able-bodied men of military
age coming forward to do "their
bit" in this great and just cause.
Mr. Allen Macdonald (one of
the recruits) responded on behalf
of the guests, thanking the hosts
for the kindnesses on this memorable occasion.
Mr. Macdonald, who was for
some eighteen month a student
in Germany, in addressing the
assembly spake with the assurance of one having^studied the
situation, and related some
founding facts with regard to the
fierce hatred prevalent in Germany towards everything British. Among other things of interest, he stated that knowing
what he did of this'undercurrent,
he was fully convinced that there
cculd be no such thing as a "lasting peace", until Germany was
absolutely crushed and that if a
"patched up peace" occurred,
Germany, at some convenient
date would, without doubt, start
the same proceedings over again,
it was a remarkable address from
start to finish, and will be remembered by • those who were
fortunate enough to hear it,
During the evening patriotic
and comic songs were sung by-
Messrs French, and Johnstone,
Messrs Bridge an Allen ably presiding at the piano.
About midnight the National
Anthem was sung, the "Boys"
then spun yarns and sung songs
till the small hours.
The "Boys," have enlisted
in the 102nd, and were as follows: Herbert Dade, Fred Clyde,
John Eagleson, James Carmi-
chael, Herbert Hatchings, Allan
Macdonald, Herbert Mure, Allan
Hume and William Johnstone,
left for Comox on Wednesday
morning, amid enthuiastic cheering and all good wishes.
The people of Lillooet, after
the war is over, yes, and for
many years to come, (although
they may drift far apart) will
look back and remember with
justifiable pride to the time when
Lillooet responded so heartily in
the Empire's time of need.
God Save the King.
Parliament Blown
Up Last Night
The Houses of Parliament at
Ottawa are reported, by wire, to
have been dynamited. The report reads that the building was
blown up about 9.30 p.m, while
the House was in session. The
library with its priceless collec-
tioh was uninjured, but the senate wing was guttered. The
number of persons killed or injured is not at present known.
The property loss is estimated
at three million dollars.
London.— Captain W. Martin
of the trawler King Stephen, reports that on Wednesday in the
North Sea he sighted Zeppelin
L-19 with the cars and part of
its body submerged, twenty
members of the crew were clinging to the envelope and crying
to be taken off, more men appeared on the platform top of
envelope. Martin refused to
take the risk of being overpowered, he carrying a small
crew.     	
Collier Franz has been sunk
by a zep while riding at anchor.
A bomb was dropped near the
engine room. 13 of the crew
were drowned.
Petograd—Turks have evacuated Erzerum, principal stronghold of the Caucus.
Allies are making a clean up of
the German submarine bases.
Lumber Business
Word was brought to town this
morning that a man had fallen
through the ice into the Fraser
river, near the 21 mile. Details
have as yet not arrived.
The investigation now being
made by the Federal Trade Commission into the conditions of the
lumber industry has brought out
in an emphatic way the opinion
held by American lumbermen
that far more is being done to
help the industry on the British
Columbia side of the boundary
than in the United States.
"British Columbia," stated
counsel at the recent hearing at
Washington, D.C., "is laying the
foundations of a preferential tariff. An active virile commonwealth producing the same com-
modiiy and competing in the
same markets is aiding its own
lumber industry in every reasonable way. Officials there are
progressive and awake to the opportunities of the day."
The brief filed with the Commission by the West coast Lumber Manufacturers Association
states: "There is no question as
to the British Columbia Governmental policy towards the industry. It appears in every law and
in every act. The attitude of the
Forest Branch is best expressed
by its representative: 'It is our
business to help the industry in
every possible way. We are
practically in partnership with it.'
This extends not only to export,
but to domestic trade as well.
The entire subject is handled
methodically and intelligently
with the fixed and definite purpose of furthering ahd fostering
the industry in every possible
way." THE PROSPECTOR

[from Vernon News]
There is probably no naval
expert better qualified to express an intelligent opinion
on matters connected with
the present situation than
Mr. Archiabld Hurd. Anything written by him on this
subject bears the impress of
authority, and it is gratifying to note that in a recent
article written for the British
press he strikes a high note
of optimism. He asserts that
the success of Britain in
maintaining an iron grip on
the sea during the great
struggle now in progress has
been due to a remarkable
system of concentration, and
initiative. These successes,
moreover have had no parallel in history. Only one
thing that a navy could do or
has done in the past has not
been done by the British navy; it has not bombarded the
enemy's coasts. But one
thing it has accomplished
which no navy ever before
achieved to the same extent.
It has prevented a single enemy battleship or cruiser from
slipping past the blockade of
the German fleet. For nearly a year not a German battle cruiser has been in the
North Sea; and the excursions in the Baltic have been
fraught with disaster. It has
absolutely driven the German fleet to cover, and how
the morale of the German
navy, the seamanlike qualities of the men, and the effectiveness of the German
gun fire must have deteriat-
ed in nearly eighteen months
of inactivity may easily be
guessed.
In considering the bloodless victory of the British navy, Mr. Hurd pays due tribute to the work of the French,
Italian and Russian fleets.
They have done work that
otherwise would have had to
be done by the British fleet,
and because the have done it
the Grand Fleet has remained intact, with the occasional
absence of a battleship like
the Queen Elizabeth at the
Dardanelles, or of such a
squadrop. as Admiral Sturdee
commanded when he sank
the German squadron under
von Spee. How important
it has been that the Grand
Fleet should remain at practically full strength in the
Forth Sea and be able even
to increase its strength since
the beginning of the war may

be learned from a German
source. Admiral von der
Goltz, one of Germany's leading naval authorities, said
some time ago when discuss?
ing the probable European
war and the work of the German and British fleets:
"The maritime supremacy
of Great Britain, overwhelming now, will certainly remain considerable in the future; but she is compelled to
scatter her forces all over the
world. In the event of war
in home waters the greater
part of the foreign squadrons
would, no doubt, be recalled;
but that would be a matter
of t me, and then all the stations oversea could not be a-
bandoned. On the other
hand, the German fleet tho
much smaller, can remain
concentrated in European waters. Numerical inferiority
can be compensated for by
efficiency, by excellence of
material, by the capacity and
discipline of the men. Careful preparation permiting rapid mobilization can ensure a
momentary superiority."
The understand brought a-
bout between France and Gt.
Gritain some years ago, chiefly through the statesmenship
of the late King Edward, is
partly responsible for the policy of concentration that the
Admiralty was able to adopt
on the suggestion of Baron
Fisher. The Dreadnought,
too, which has altered naval
strategy in a remarkable degree, was also his creation.
Credit must go, also, to both
Winston Churchill, who when
First Lord of the Admiralty,
fought against Lloyd George
for the maintenance of a great
British fleet, and to Prince
Louis of Battenburg, who
was more responsible than
anyone else for the instant
preparedness and concentration of the fleet at the moment war was declared. The
se leaders in the grand strategy being recognized, Mr.
Hurd pays his compliments
to the officers and men of the
navy. As he says, they took
the initiative at once. They
did not wait to see what the
Germans were about to do.
The British navy did things.
To use a card term, it established a lead, and ever since
has been leading out its
strong suit to Germany,
which has had no option but
to follow.
"When war was declared
there were half a dozen or
so German cruisers in different parts of the world that
could not be driven immediately into neutral ports. Their
depreciations for a while cau
sea alarm, and in some quarters there was a feeling that
the great business of the Brit-
navy was to run down those
ships. The navy refused to
be drawn from its business in
the North Sea. It was content to wait, knowing that
sooner or later the marauders

would be rounded up. It was
not the navy that was responsible tor the disaster to the
gallant Cradock and his men.
Mr. Hurd points out that to
laugh at the German navy's
ineffectiveness is to minimize the service rendered by
the British Grand Fleet. The
German navy is second in
power to the British navy
alone. It is a more potent
naval force than those of
France, Russia and Italy
combined. If it has been reduced to absolute impotency,
not it's own weakness, but
the strength and the initiative of the British navy is responsible.
