BIG MONTHLY BILt OF
EXPENDITURE BY
COPPER CO.
MI_.ES   AND  MI-.I-.G
According to a statement given out at
Boston, the British Columbia Copper Co.
is spending $20,000 monthly to carry on
extraordinary development at properties
under option. To date about 1,500,000
tons of ore carying copper values have
been developed in these optional properties and indications are that in the next
three months 1,500,000 tons more will
have been added..
J. W. Bartlett, of Ineheleum, Wash.,
left ou Monday for Hedley aud Spokane
after looking over the mining field, He
thinks Copper Mountain a vast mineral
area and the future of mining veiy promising. Twentv years ago Mr. Bartlett
was interested in mines at Fairview and
he now returns to invest in legitimate
propositions of any kind.
Mr. Walz, assistant to F. R. Weekes.
resident engineer ofthe B.C. Copper Co.
at Copper Mountain, was recently at
Roche River looking over mining prospects in that promising field. He visit,
ed the Red Star, held under bond by
Nels Larsen, and on which a large amount of prospecting has been done. The
ore is high grade copper-gold and about
1500 tons are on the dumps. Work is
proceeding on the lead by tunnel all in
ore.
The Vancouver exhibition is an annual
event of great provincial importance, attracting large crowds of spectators. This
year it opens on Saturday, Aug. 30, closing on Saturday, Sept. 6. A feature of
the exhibition is a display ofthe minerals
of the province. Princeton district
should have a comprehensive show of
its varied mineral resources. Samples of
-ore may be left at the Star.
Robert Cramer has been at Copper
Mountain recently and reports extensive
operations by the B. C. Copper Co. on the
Silver Dollar, Annie L. and Ada B.
W. J. Kager, mining man of Seattle,
who has been in this section for the past
sixty days investigating and examining
placer and lode propositions, left on
Monday for the coast. He thinks that
the mining resources here are proving
valuable assets of the countrv.
Patsy Clark, millionaire mining man
of Spokrne, is expected to arrive soon
and will make a quick trip to Summitt
Camp, Leadville. He will be accompanied from Princeton by Col. SVevenson,
guide and explorer.
One hundred thousand dollars will be
invested by the British Columbia Copper
Company in the erection of a concentra
tor at the Voigt properties, near Princeton, B. C , according to a Greenwood report to the Spokane Chronicle. Satisfac
tory results odtained of diamond drilling
and other investigations that have] proceeded for nearly two years on the Voigt
and other properties have promoted this
action. These investigations are reported
to have shown large bodies of ore carrying iyi to 2}i per cent, copper and about
$2 in gold to the ton. It is calculated
that the gold and a small part of the copper will become a net profit. Emil F.
Voigt, the original owner of the properties and who had a hard time to keep the
claims alive, will be the chief beneficiary
through the retirement of the bonds by
the British Columbia Copper Company,
his contract calling for the payment of
several hundred thousand dollars.
Albert   Allan,    railroad   and   mining
lawver expert, is expected here  in   company with P.- Clark and will go to  Lead
ville.
Blackburn and Wedell have now got a
trail to their claims. Thev are getting

They are working on the main fissure
at the Infliana now and have about eight
inches of good ore.

WHO IS TO BLAME ?
The socalled 'financial stringency' of the day is used as a plea by
individuals for the non-fulfillment
of promises to pay honest debts and
it is also used by millionaire magnates and railway presidents to
postpone certain bublic works
which they had undertaken. They
are only too ready to seize any excuse for delay and probable release
altogether from an honest debt or
obligation of any kind. The innocent are made to suffer for the
wrongs inflicted upon them by unscrupulous debt dodgers and promise breakers. So the moral effect
of the cursed cry of hard times is
most baneful and far-reaching.
While it is possible for a few financial operators and stock manipulators to plan and carry out nefarious
designs no one seems capable of
framing legislation that will curtail the powers of these monied interests. Possibly these monied interests control the legislators. It
is time for the people to awaken
and avert these disastrous depressions by public ownership and control cf the money market. There
should be good times all the time,
especially in a new country like
Canada. In the Similkameen the
main cause of the depression is the
lack of railway construction and
coast connection.
NEWSPAPER ADVERTISING
In the North Grey by-election in
Ontario the liberal candidate stood
on the chief plank in the party platform 'abolish the bar.' He was defeated by a substantial majority by
the conservative candidate wnich
was to be expected in a province
where so many religious and secular journals as well a ministers and
clergy do not oppose liquor licences.
In the campaign recriminative
speeches and editorials were plentiful, among them the oldtime Metho
dist Christian Guardian accused the
Toronto Globe of inconsistency in
its advocacy of 'the abolish the bar.'
plank. Th_ Guardian pointed to
beer and liquor ads in the Globe
alongside of its  temperance editor
ials. Every newspaper has space
to sell and it does not refuse licenced hotel ads any more than that of
the dry goods merchant. So long
as there is no obscene or immoral
wording in the ad. the newspaper
crnnot refuse space for its life depends on advertising. Free and independent expression of editorial
opinion, to be of any value, must
be dissociated from the question of
patronage given in the advertising
columns of a newspaper. Because
a paper receives patronage from a
hotel or railway company is that to
be a reason for suppressing criticism or news when the interests of
the public demand it? Nonsense.
Instead of the Guardian accusing
the Globe or any paper of inconsistency on the grounds mentioned it
ought to remove the beam or mote
it complains of and which affects
its own vision so markedly. When
its minister-editor goes abroad does
he patronize the licenced hotel or
will he stay at the temperance
house? Ninety-nine per cent, of all
preachers when travelling patronize
the licenced house in preference to
the temperance hotel—they preach
temperance but they do not practice
it, preferring to eat and sleep where
booze is handy for guests. Editors,
as a rule have no quarrel with
preachers, they only want them to
be consistent, keep in their spheres
and stay put.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
There is enough devolpment in
sight and permanent industry now
going on within a radius of a few
miles of Ashnola to warrant the ex,-
tension ofthe government telephone
line to that point. Mining in the
vicinity of Ashnola and along the
transprovincial road now building to

During last session of the provincial legislature a bill was introduced
by W. J. Manson entitled 'An act

measure is wise and liberal and can
be put in operation by citizens in
any town.

THE WIDE WORLD.
Germany's new increasedtaxes, necessitated by the extraordinary increased
annual army expenditure and now certain to become law, are arousing a great
storm of protest all over the empire, especially those on the income of property
ann inheritance. Enormous public meetings are being held everywhere. Oppos-
sition is daily growing, especially in the
agrarian centers. Already no fewer than
one hundred and eighteen petitions protesting against the imposts have been received by the government from powerful
associations of all kinds in every part of
the country." Such a number of petitions
on the subject has never before been
known in Germany.
With the purpose of taking the' last
step necessary to crush out the international traffic in smoking opium, cocaine,
and other noxious and -habit-forming
drugs, representatives of nearly all the
natoins of the world gathered at The
Hague last week to continue the international conference which adjourned in
that capital on Jan. 23, 1912. The purpose of the gathering is to ascertain
whether a sufficient number of powers
will join in ratifying the international
convention looking to the suppression of
the opium traffic, drafted by that confer
ence, to ensure its successful operation.
The German army bills, have passed in
the Reichstag. They were opposed to
the last by the Poles and Alsatians, but
the Socialists, while opposing an increase
of the army, uoted in favor of the special
war levy on the ground that, ;falling on
the propertied classes, it would tend to
make them less anxious to indulge in
militarism Herr Hasse having declared
that, the army bill having passed, a finance bill was necessary to pay for it, and
the people to pay for it were the propertied classes who had supported it.
At a recent meeting the London County" Council considered the education estimates for the current financial year.
Expenditure on capital account was estimated to amount to at least one million
pounds, which is considerably in excess
ofthe expenditure in previous years.
The United States Steel Corporation
has been granted the rights to enter Canada and to operate .under letters patent
of the Dominion of Canada issued to a
corporation to be known as the Canada
Steel Corporation, Limited. The capital
ofthe new concern is twenty million
dollars.
The existence of serious forest fires in
the Chugach national fore t in Alaska,
recently, was taken by the forest service
as a text to awswer critics who have contended that there is no fire risk and ho
timber worth protecting in Alaska. The
service pointed out that in the Chugach
forest alone there are twenty eight bil
lion feet of lumber, and that its destrnc
tion wag prevented only by the timely
action and work of the forest service
rangers.
Postmaster-General Burleson, ofthe TJ.
S., has ordered through the secretary of
the' Treasury, 12,071,481,000 postage
stamps for the fiscal year beginning on
July 1.
On June nth, the Storthing of Norway
unanimously voted in fayor of granting
universal political suffrage to women,
both marired and unmarried. As a result of this important decision all Nor-
weigan njen and women over twenty-five
years of age are now enfranchised.
Minnesota creameries, 883 in number,
produced 116,500,000 pounds of butter in
1912, adding thirty-five million dollars to
the state's wealth. This is an increase of
about six million dollars over 1911.

THE DEADLY DUMP.
Cleanliness is Next to Godliness and
Laws Should be Obeyed.
Cleanliness has not advanced very far
in some parts of Canada. The town
dump with all its tin-cans, waste-paper,
old rags aud ash conglomerate is frequently as much a public institution as the
town hall or the town council. For the
sake of economy in cartage the dumps
are frequently placed much too close to
the residential districts, and civic apathy
permits them to remain there, and to
grow in bulk and unsightliness.
- Garbage must be disposed of, but why
our authorities should not insist upon the
burning up of much of the house waste
upon the premises, either in the furnace
or the kitchen stove, -is something to be
marvelled al. If there were more domestic tidiness in Canadian towns and cities by way of destruction of many articles of house waste by home cremation, the
gross saving to the municipality would
be considerable and the town dump
would be less in evidence.
Then, too, the festering, stinking, fly-
breeding dump at the back door or the
civic "dump" should be supervised and
men should be employed in burning all
such materials as paper, cardboard and
other boxes, discarded matting and so on.
This would result in the saving of space
and prevent the scattering of the lighter
materials by the wind. Further the destruction by fire of as much as possible of
the material brought to the dump would
prevent to some extent the fly nuisance
from that quarter. On the completion
ofthe burning operations, the health department should insist that all garbage
should be covered first witn a layer of
lime, and then with clean earth, the latter to a depth of at least three feet. Of
course in cities and large towns incinerators should be installed and the dump
should only be used as a repository for
ashes and clean earth. Scrap should be
sold.
The spring time is a good season to declare war on the town dumps and on filthy back yards and lanes. If Ihe citizens
can be aroused to demand action, the
civic officials will very soon snpply it.
SURE  TO  BE  SAFE
When You Select
Maple Leaf Paints &Varnishes
for your painting and finishing Do not select them for their
excellence of color alone, nor merely because they cover better and
wear longer than other paints and varnishes. Choose them because
they protect the best, and preserve property longest. That is why
they pay.   That is why their use means service and money saved.
Your choice will be safe, your investment sure if you ask
your dealer for the Maple Leaf Brands.
