Gas Attacks
The "Morning Post" of London, England, dated January 15.
1916. says:
" As regards the gas attack on
the British positions in the middle of December, this was the
only outcome of the apparently
intense concentration that had
been reported as going on in the
enemy's lines for some time previously. It was certainly the
most extensive use of gas that
the campaign has yet produced,
and was the result ot! careful
preparation for this precise purpose. Taught by experience,
however, our soldiers are always
ready with their smoke helmets,
and excellent appliances they
are, so that even before the artillery has got into action to help
dissipate the gas by shell fire the
infantary are fighting hard comparatively immune from the vapour, if somewhat uncomfortable.
In the case in question the gas
was so dense as to form a fog
thick enough to mask well nigh
completely the approach of the
German masses. That did not
prevent us opening an inferno of
fire from all weapons so terrible
in its sustained precision that
nothing could live in it. The
masses wavered and broke even
before they had got in among
their own gas. Our • casualties
were insignificant, the German
losses very severe. Thi3 particular action is significant as affording further evidence that
methods of barbarism in practice
fail to accomplish their purpose,
and leave but the stigma behind.
Overseas Forces Club
The Lord Mayor of London,
accompanied by the Lady Mayoress and Sheriff Shead, recently
paid a visit of inspection to King
George and Queen Mary's Club
for the Overseas forces, Regency
street, Westminster.
In welcoming the visitors, a-
mong whom were a number of
Colonial officials, Mr. Steel-Mait-
land, chairman of the Club Corn-
mitte, mentioned that the club
was recently started ;by Mrs,
Graham Murray and Mrs. Mon-
creiffe, who realized what a boom
it would be to members of the
Overseas Forces temporarily sojourning in London to hi.ve a
comfortable place in which to
live. There was in the club not
only inhabitants of Canada, New
Zealand, and Australia but men
from South Africa, Newfoundland, and Fiji; in fact, people
of British extraction from every
corner of the earth.
The Lord Mayor said that in the
past two months he had inspected many soldiers, but he could
say without any mental reservation that he had never inspected
a finer-looking lot of men than
those before»him that day. Not
only we>-e they big in stature:
the were kings in courage. People in th_ Old Country would
never forget what the men from
Overseas had done in this war
for4iberty.
A pleasant evening was spent
at the home of Mr. and Mrs, W.
Adams. Mr. J. Allen, the guest
of the evening, left for the coast
on Sunday. A number of friends
were present.
Hold On, John Bull!
"Mr. Wilson," complains the
Fatherland, "is practically an
Englishman."
That is, he speaks English,
thinks in English, and is of British descent.
Fifty or sixty millions of the
preseut inhabitants of this country are open to the same objection. As seen by the Fatherland,
they must look to be "practically
Englishmen."
It is a hundred and fifty years
since it has been openly popular
in this country to be "practically
English." A trouble that happened in the last century but one,
when we set up housekeeping,
made it necessary for our fathers
to accentuate the fact that they
were not Englishmen but Americans. Early in the last century
there had to be some reaccentua-
tion of this political truth, and
more of it a half century later.
A healthy interest in continental
self-development induced a jealousy of the disposition to pattern
our tastes and manners after the
model that interested us the most
and was the most natural for u_
to follow. The great Irish immigration in the middle of the last
century presently furnished a
new political motive for the fostering of this sentiment. In
those days the Irish disapproval
of England had a good case, and
one that had to be respected by
just people, eveu though they
were careless of the Irish vote.
And so it happened, for one reason or-another, for a century and
a half that the great mass of
Americans were always on their
guard not to be too great admirers or lovers of their blood brethren, but to stand on their own
feet and be their independent
selves.
But nature is not to be balked
by mere politics. Deep calleth
unto the deep and like to like.
Race is race, though seas divide
interests conflict. Quarrels heat
the blood, but do not change it.
Jew is Jew, German is German,
Irishman is Irishman, and what
is born English lives English, as
a rule, on whatever soil and under whatever flag. A erisis, a
shiver up the back, and y«.<u know
what was born in you and who
at th$ pinch is with you and you
with him. In spite of all jealousies and rivalries, the ties between the British Isles and these
States have grown closer and
closer as the distance between
them has diminished. Out in
Samoa in a hurricane the cheers
of American seamen on the Trenton reach gratefully to the British
Calliope, struggling past to the
open sea, and American blood ran
warmer at the story. A little
later, in Manila Bay, we found a
friend. Things have gone better
between the Union Jack and the
Stars and Stripes since '98.
The backbone of the United
States is made of precisely the
same materials as the backbone
of the British Empire. It is English, Scotch and Irish. The
language, literature and political
ideals of the United States are of
the same derivation. That is
why in this world-crisis we have
seen things as we have. It has
not been that the British propaganda has captured us. It has
been that, with the minds we
have, we could not see the case
otherwise than we have seen it.
We have been for the Allies he-
cause we were born so; born to
faith that is in them and tojjfaith
in them who hold that faith; born
to the duty which they have accepted—to keep liberty alive in
the world and maintain it against
the domination of calculated and
machine-made efficiency.
To us the English stock the
Great War seems to bring a summons to wear our English derivation with somewhat more assertion . The Irish love Ireland openly and are not expected to a-
J?ologize; American Scots show an
t>pen kindness for Scotland; Germans love their Fatherland under
\ny sun. Is it only to be England
that men sprung from her loins
may not care for?
Who says that? Surely not we
whose English derivation is all
the root we have, who are lawful
heirs of a tradition and literature
the greatest, all counted, since
Rome and Greece. We have been
too modest. Poll us in these
States and we are a greater company by much than all the rest,
the longest planted here, and
surely not the least powerful or
least worthy.
Who is the anchor at the end
of the Allies' rope in the great
tug-of-war? Who but our blood-
cousin, John Bull! There he
stands, with planted feet, sweating and sore beset; his muscles
lame, but holding on.
Hold on, John Bull, hold on!
There are these across the seas
who care for you; who hold with
you now in daylight and in dark
so far as yet they may, and will
gladly hold with you in face of
all comers when Fate permits it.
Hold on, John Bull! -Life.

J.P's. WEEKLY
At the Weekly round table
luncheon of the American Club
last Saturday Mr. John P. McConnell delivered an address on
the subject of "The ISO Mile
Segment." The address was listened to with the greatest attention and a vote of thanks was
tendered to "J,P." at the close.
In opening his remarks Mr.
McConnell exhibited a map of
British Columbia on which the
150 mile segment was drawn. He
said: "If we place one leg of the
compass on Vancouver and extend
the other 160 miles it will strike
49th parallel at a point near Myn-
caster creek. By describing the
arc of a circle to the coast we
will arrive at a point a few miles
above Port Neville. The result is
a segment not unlike a very liberal piece of pie,, and I wish to
say that no pie was ever conceived which contains such rich plums
as this piece of British Columbia
pie.
"In that segment lie mineral
riches of untold vastness. Within that little 150 mile segment of
British Columbia are mineral riches alone sufficient to support an
empire, and yet so far as Vancouver is concerned they might
as well be at the north pole.
"You will observe this segment
does not include the rich and
partly developed districts of the
Boundary and Kootenay. A
great deal of development has
taken place in those districts, but
I regret to say, not by the enterprise of Vancouver business men.
Most of tbe development in mining in British Columbia has been
undertaken by Americans with
American capital, I for one do
not complain of this. I congratulate the Americans upon their
enterprise and their success, but
I deplore, the lack of enterprise
on the part of Vancouver citizens.
This year there will flow into the
city of Spokane about $3,000,000
in dividens earned from the operation of British Columbia mines
and this does not include other
dividends going to New York,
Pittsburg and St. Paul, while at
the same time I doubt if there
are in Vancouver half a dozen
men who own shares in dividend
paying mines. You can get more
information in Spokane about
British Columbia mines in half
an hour than you can in Vancouver in a week."

Mr. McConnel then related
an incident to show how general and profound is the ignorance of mining matters
in Vancouver. As is well-
known, or should be, the
Britannia mine is now considered one of the largest
copper mines in the world, if
indeed it is not the biggest.
Of cource, it not the largest
producer as yet, but its proven bodies of ore are now believed to be the largest of
any other mine in the world.
Now that mine lies so close
to Vancouver that the place
where one of its ledges outcrops in Capilano Canyon is
almost within sight of the
city. Yet the other day,
when the subject of the Brit-
tannia was mentioned a man
who has been very prominently identified with the
Board of Trade for many
years vouchsafed the information that he had heard of
the mine and he thought it
was over around Nanaimo
somewhere.
"In this segement," the
speaker went on to say, "lie
the district and mining camps
of part of the Okanagan, all
of the Similkameen which includes the Nickle Plate gold
mine at Hedley, the coal
mines of Princeton, Copper
Mountain, the Tulameengold
and platinum beds, the silver-
lead, gold-copper properties
of Souter Creek, Kelly Creek,
Bear Creek, Treasure Mountain and Summit Camp, then
further north the Aspen Gve
copper camp, then the Nicola
Valley coal fields, north again
to Highland Valley copper
camp, the Kamloops copper
mines, the great fields of
mineral in Lillooet, Bridge
River and the Broken Hill
properties."
Over most of this country
the speaker had travelled in
the last twelve years by almost every means of locomotion except canoes, which
are impossible in B.C. rivers,
pack train, on foot, by rail
and by motor car.
Twelve years ago when he
first visited the Hedley mining camp he rode 175 miles
on horseback to get to it.
There was no railway in those
days. Everything had to be
packed in on horses or haul-
in freight wagons. He found
in the place a well built town,
a 50-stamp mill, a mine with
a mile of tramway and five

miles of trolley railway for
hauling ore, and every pound
of material in the place had
cost 5 cents for freight alone.
That was enterprise based
upon business principles and
exact knowledge of the mining business. Today the Nickle Plate returns its original
capital to its investors every
couple of years, which is another way of saying it pays
annual profits oi forty to sixty per cent, on its capital.
The speaker also quoted
Mr. M. K. Rodgers, the o-
riginal discoverer of the property, as having said that the
twenty miles of country lying north of the Nickle Plate
mine on Twenty Mile creek,
was, in his opinion, the most
richly mineralized belt of its
extent in North America.
Yet there was only one developed mine in that region.
The Nickle Plate is owned by
Pittsburg capitalists.
At Copper mountain American capital was developing a
big property. At Summit
camp and the adjacent creeks
emptying into the Tulameen,
American capitalists and pros
pectors were opening up fine
showings and in a few years
more British Columbia mines
would be sending dividends
across the border to lucky investors.
In the Nicola Valley alone
we found where Vancouver
men had invested in the coal
fields. A big coal property
had been developed in .here
since the railway had been
built.
Now that the Kettle Valley
railway was nearly complete
all the Similkameen, Nicola.
Boundary and the Oakangan
would be brought within a
few hours of Vancouver. He
urged that the business men
of Vancouver wake up to
their opportunities and investigate the mining possibilities
of that splendid region, not
as a speculation or a gamble,
but as a business enterprise.
Mining was not a gamble any
more than any other business
was. No business was more
easily susceptible of being reduced to an exact scale of
costs than mining, and this
had been proven over and
over again. There were plenty of mining men, qualified
engineers, metallargists, geologists and other specialists
who know the mining business and have made it as exact and safe as any other
business in the world.
He suggested that small
syndicates be formed to take
over and develop or rather
investigate properties. If
done under the advice of com-
pctent engineers practically
no risk need be undertaken.
A few thousand dollars spent
in examining and testing ore
bodies would demonstrate
whether the property was
worth going on with or not.
If investigation revealed that
it was not the loss would be

LABEL
slight and would have to be
charged against the first venture which proved successful.
Once a property was developed into a mine the returns
would repay all initial failure
and every proven mine would
be an asset of untold value
to the province.
"It only remains," he concluded "for the business men
of Vancouver to wake up and
make a study ot conditions,
to use enterprise and the
same prudence as they do in
any other business, to make
Vancouver one of the foremost mining centres of the
world."
