that there are upwards of 800 men working in and around Phoenix at the present
time. Of this number 500 are at the
Granby, 200 at the Rawhide and between
150 and 200 at the Gold Drop. Three
trainloads of ore are taken every day
from the mines at Phcenix and shipped
to the smelter at Grand Forks to be

I.O.O.F. HALL FINELY
1 SITUATED FOR
PUBLIC USES
GOLD-PLATINUM
The Similkameen and Tulameen rivers
have been for many years famous for the
remarkable qualities of black sands con
tained in their gravels, which all, more
or less contain gold and platinum. Mr.
C. F. Law, who knows the district, places
the produbtion of platinum from the Tulameen and its tributaries at 20*000 ozs.
Whilst this amonnt was saved and rnark
eted, how much more was probably lost?
The black platiniferous sands held in the
riffles and sluice boxes were regarded as
of no value in those days and were
thrown away. For instance, according
to the 'Mineral Industry', platinum was
selling in Russia in 1898 at $7.75 to $8.75
per oz. Today it is quoted in New York
at $45 5° Per °z- for refined metal and
$48 for hard metal. This represents an
average increase in price of over fifty per
cent per annum, or 600 per cent, in ten
years. The Tulameen platinums are
classed as hard metals.—Frank Bailey,
M. E in 'The Valley of Sunshine.'
NEW I. 0. 0. F. HALL
A. E. Irwin has received the contract
for building the I. O O. F. hall to be
erected on the corner of Bridge street
and Fenchurch avenue. The plans call
for a two storey structure eventually but
for the present only one will be erected.
Dimensions are 50 x 70, partitions -being
made for ladies' and gentlemen's dressing rooms, regalia rooms and so on. The
hall will be awulable for public uses and
it will be comp\@i£d in time for the festive season. As this is an 'off' building
year everywhere the Oddfellows are to
be congratulated for their enterprise and
public spirit.

Ashmead Bartlett sends to the London
Daily Telegraph a story of Bulgarian atrocities that seems almost incredible.
There is uot a crime that he does not
charge against these people and the magnitude of their offences seems almost
past belief. Men, women and children,
old and young, Mussalmans and 'Christians, were alike the victims. The de
struction of property was enormous. The
whole territory occupied by them west of
the Maritza River has been laid waste.

shorter hours. The report on June 30,
gave 36,365 railroad employee killed in
the United States during the year.

VANCOUVER 1915 EXHIBITION
Preparations are well under way for a
great mining exhibition to be held' in
Vancouver in 1915 on a far more ambitious scale than ever attempted in >this
country before, and already support promised to the scheme is gratifying* A
capable committee has the matter in
hand and is working to map out details
ofthe scheme in order to attract men! interested in mining from all quarters of
the globe. One of the features of the
proposed exhibition, which will last for
three months, will be a practical illustration of the evolution of the process of
treating gold ores. An old mill",-operated
by horsepower, will be set in motiou beside a modern stamp mill. Present-day
mining machinery and modern methods
of treating the mineral products of British Columbia will be demonstrated. It
is planned to send a collector to gather
samples of various mines and prospects
so that every property of worth may be
represented.
SUGGESTION FROM NELSON
Realizing that additional provincial revenue must be provided-for, a joint meeting of lumber manufacturers, timber
owners and Nelson business men have
prepared a resolution which was later
submitted to Hon. W. R. Ross, minister
of lands, urging the go-^rnment to re establish the poll-tax, increasing it to <, $5
per annum, but making it apply only to
such persons as do not contribute to the
provincial funds. This resolution, with
other recommendations, was presented
to Mr. Ross, who as a commissioner enquiring into the condition of theindusjry
with a view to possible changes in the
royalty charges and the scaling methods,
held a session in the court house recently- _^____

Superintendent Robinson of the cement plant is turning out a first •'{'lass
article as is proveu by scientific tests
• made in the laboratory. From set samples seen there is no doubt that it is excellent; in any case repeat orders are frequent and these, more than all, are the
best proof of quality.
Again it is reported that the Kettle
Valley railway will come down Fivemile
creek to its mouth on the Similkameen
river. Whether it comes this or that
way, over the hills or down the gulch,
matters not if they will only come. The

r THE MINER'S INCH
_ jOn the Pacific coast, the unit for
raeasu/ing water in mining is
known as the miner's inch., This
varies greatly in different localities
and is now generally defined by legislative enactment.^;'-The statute
~5nch of Colorado, for example, is
defined as'an inch square orifice,
which shall be under a five-inch
pressure measured from the top of
the orifice to the surface of tbe
; water, in a box set in the banks of
the ditch. This orifice shall in all
cases be six inches perpendicular,
inside measurement, and all sides
closing the same shall move horizontally, while from the water in the
ditch the water shall have a descent
greater than one eighth of an inch
lo the foot.' In British Columbia,
iinder the Water Clauses Consolidation .Act, 1879, Section 143, a miner's inch is declared to be a ffow of
water equal to 1.68 cubic feet per
minute. Therefore a miner's inch
is equal to .028 cubic feet per second
and 1 cubic foot per second is equal
t0 35-71 miner's inches per second,
Approximately- One cubic foot per
second'would be equal to 38,4 Colorado miner's inches. — Conservation. '
PUBLIC SWIMMING BATHS
It is an admitted fact that in
Canadian cities and towns civic
money is often expended in ways
which bring no adequate return for
the expenditure. A very small
portion of the money thus spent
would serve to establish public
swimming baths. The advantage
vand popularity of such baths are
-undoubted, and, where they, have
been established in Canadian cities,
they have almost invariably been
successful. In many places where
there are no civic baths, the Y. M,
C. A.'s throw their tanks open for
free public use during the hot
months of summer, and every week
hundreds of people take advantage
of tbe opportunity thus offered.
Surely the citizens of Canadian cities should not be forced to depend
upon the charity of the Y. M. C. A.
particularly as the establishment of
public swimming baths is such- a
simple matter.—Conservation.
CARELESSNESS IN ACCIDENTS
Train accidents are practically
tbe only accidents brought to tbe
attention of the public at large.
Although only 15 per cent, of the
railway employees killed and 5 per
cent, of those injured suffer from
this cause, yet these accidents are
blazoned forth on the pages of the
public press and attract attention
which they scarcely merit, when
compared to those other accidents
to which the great loss of life and
efficiency is due. Carelessness on
the part of employees is, in almost
every case, responsible for the train
accidents as well as for a large percentage of the other accidents incident to railway operation, but it is
difficult to point to any manner in
which such carelessness can be done
away with by regulation alone.
The railroad brotherhoods should
rerlize their responsibility in this
matter. It is incumbent upon them
to make 'safety first' a cardinal
principle of their doctrines.—Conservation.
ALUMINIUM  COOKING VESSELS
An investigation has been carried
on by the laboratory of the London
Lancet into the extent and way in
which various aluminium cooking
vessels were affected by the usual
articles of food and flavoring materials used in cooking. The only
case in which a derogatory result
worthy of consideration wasobtain-
ed was in the use of baking soda
and this should therefore be avoided. However, a warning to this ef-
ecfis frequently issued when aluminium cooking vessels are sold, it
appears therefore that the use of
pure aluminium cooking vessels
need occasion no misgiving as to
possible evil effects.—Conservation.
TO KEEP MILK SWEET
That light is detrimental to the
conservation of milk is well known;
lately, however it has been discovered that the violet rays are the
mott detrimental, while the red
rays are beneficial. Sterilized and
unsterilized milk, if in plain glass
bottles, 'turn' equally quickly when
exposed to sunlight. The claim
that the use of ged glass or red
paper wrappings is of advantage in
conserving milk can be very easily
investigated by Canadian dairy
companies, experimental farms and
agricultural colleges. In future it
may be found desirable to deliver
milk in the colored bottles which
are now generally used for buttermilk. Investigation along these
lines would be neither difficult nor
expensive to carry on and might
prove of advantage.—Conservation.
WATER NOTICE
For a licence to take and use water.
Notice is hereby given that Thomas P. White of
Princeton, B. C, will apply for a^licence to take
and use 3 cubic feet per second of water out of
Findley Creek, which flows in a southerly direction through lot 387 and empties into Bromley

THE WIDE WORLD
From   Page   i.
It is claimed by the Negro National
Business League of Philadelphia that the
race has during its fifty years of freedom
accumulated property to the value of
$700,000,000 exceeding the possessions
ofthe white peasants of Russia. The
race has increased from 5,600,000 to 10,
000,000, illiteracy has been reduced until now only 10 per cent, are illiterate,
and the negroes now own 20,000,000
acres of land.
At the opening of the Congress of the
International Co-operative .Alliance in
London on Aug. 25th Earl Grey, former
Governor General of Canada, in his address, spoke of co operation as the ftasis
of the ideal state of the future. It would
put a barrier against the tyranny of the
trusts, and would reconcile the warring
forces of labor and capital. Six hundred
delegates were present, representing 2,
000,000 members of co-operative societies
in "Europe and America and warmly
applauded the speaker's views.
The remark of Mrs. May Sewall
Wright, of Indianapolis, jnd , at the
fourth plenary sitting of the twentieth
Universal Peace'Congress at Tue Hague
on Aug. 22 that 'two millions of women
in America protest against the fortification of the Panama Canal' drew a round
of applause from the assembly. The
speaker added 'the canal ought to be free
for the whole world and should be adorned by a statue of peace at its entrances.'
The interparliamentary council at the
Hague peace conference unanimously approved the acceptance of Richard^Bar-
tholdt's invitation on behalf of the city of
New York, asking the members of the
council to be the guests of the city du'r
ing its meetings in America in 1915. Resolutions were also adopted inviting the
next peace conference to provide for the
closing of neutral money markets to be-
ligerents ane in favor of a universal 2-
cent postage.
The movement of wheat toward the
head of the lakes is setting in with every
indication that it will be turther advanced by October the first than for many
years at that time of year. The railroads
are distributing plenty of cars all along
their lines where grain in abundance is
raised, and plenty of activity is mani
fested.
At a meeting of the Manchester chamber of commerce attention was called to
the enormous increase that had recentty
taken place in freight rates to Canada.
In some instances advances are said to be
as high as 100 per cent, and the chamber
decided to seek a conference on the subject with the board of trade and H. L.
Draytdn, chairman ofthe Dominion rait-
way fcommission, who i   now in London.
Sir Tohn Courtiss, a Cardiff, Wales, financier, who at the invitation of tbe Dominion government is enquiring into the
financial conditions of western Canadian
municipalities, stated that he had formed
a conclusion that the need for capital
was real, but that development had been
going on too rapidly for the old conntry-
man to understand unless he came out to
see for himself.

LIFE AFTER DEATH   ,
Birmingham, Eng., Sept. io—Speaking on the subject of'Continuity,' tonight
before the British Association for the Advancement of Seience, Sir Oliver Lodge,
president of the association, touched upon the question of life after death. Published forecasts of the address intimated
startling statements.
Sir Oliver summarized his address and
in his own words his argument was:
'A. marked feature ofthe present scientific era is the tendency toward comprehensive negative generalizations from a
limited point of view. Another is to take
refuge in the vague form of statement.
Another is to deny the existence of anything which makes an appeal to organs
of sense and no ready response to laboratory experiment.'
Against;these tendendencies the author
contends.    He urges a belief in  ultimate
continuity as essential to science; he   regards scientific concentration as an inad-,
equate basis for   philosophic   generalization; he believes that   obscure   phenomena may be expressed, if properly   faced,
| and he points out that   the   non-appear-
i ance of anything perfectly   uniform  and
J omnipresent is only what should   be   ex
pected and is.no argument against its real
I substantial existence.
Inconclusion hetouchedon the question
of life after death- He declared his cou-
victon that 'occurences now regarded as
occult may be examined and reduced to
order by the methods of science persistently applied,' and that; 'already, the
facts so examined have convinced me
that memory and affection are not limited
to that association with matter by which
they can .manifest themselves here and
now, and that personality -persists-beyond
bodily death.'
Sir Oliver further declared that 'we
may hope to attain some understanding
ofthe nature of a larger, perhaps ethereal
existence, and of the conditions regulating intercourse across the chasm.'
In the course of his remarks leading
up to these interesting declarations Sir
Oliver said:
'Eliminating from our view as is al-'
ways necessary, a great mass of human
activity and limiting ourselve^to a scrutiny on the side of pure science alone, let
us ask what, iu the main, is the characteristic of the promising, though perturbing
period, in which we live. Different persons would give different answers, but
the answer I venture to give is—rapid
progress combined with fundamental
skepticism.'
'Wiih the realization of predicted ether
waves in 1888, the discovery of X-rays in
i895;spontaneous radio activity in 1896,
and the isolation of the electronVn 1898,
execution of further achievement became
vivid, and novelties, experimental, theoretical aud speculative, have been showered upon us ever since this century be
gan. That is why I speak of rapid progress.'. ■jgfS??
Sir Oliver explained by fundamental
skepticism that he did not mean the
'well-worn and almost antique, theme of
theological skepticism. That controversy was practically in abeyance now '
