MINES   AND  MINERALS.
Fonr hundred coal miners have been
killed at Catdiff by explosion. There
were 900 in the mine at the time.
J. C Edwards reports mining active at
Summit camp. The Treasure mountain
tunnel is making good progress.
The Hedley Gold Mining Company
gave notice that a raise of 25 cents per
day all round in pay would take effect
from September 1. The Nickel Plate
enjoys the distinction of being, as far as
known, the only mine in Canada or the
United States that, whi'e producing no
copper, gives its employees the benefit of
the copper sliding wage scale.
Contrary to all expectations 19 of
the union men charged with rioting
in theTe'cent labor troubles at Nanaimo pleaded guilty when they were
brought before Judge Howey for trial.
All of tHe*se; were young men, mostly.j
English miners, and none were offl-'
cials of the union..
The Canadian Federation of Labor
in session at Brockville has decided to
appoint a paid organizer and to meet
the expenses of his salary by a raise
in the per capita tax to be outlined
by the committee oh ways and means;
The question of publication of an official organ was. left in abeyance. A
resolution* was passfid calling upon
the Dominion government to include
all classes of employes of the government when dealing with matters of
superannuation and retiring allowances.' The meeting unanimously endorsed another resolution condemning
the Industrial Workers of the World
in its methods of strikes and called on
Uje federal and provincial governments to prevent the establishment of
the order in Canada as being opposed
to the best industrial life of the Dominion.
California's metal production in
1912 was over 26 million dollars, j
I' Ohio coal production in 1912 reached the record-breaking figure of'Sife
524,727 short tons, valued at the mines
at $37,079,573, increases of 3,764,741
tons and $5,269,450 over the figures
for 1911.
Ore Samples Requested .-.**&£
, H. B. Brown, of the Mines and Forestry branch of the Vancouver exhibition writes Star stating that there is
undoubtedly a revival in .mining and
capital is available for meritorious
propositions. Geologists have freely
ftkted that we have the greatest undeveloped bodies of injEineral in the
world. He says: ! 'We have the prgsj-j
pective mines in the province, let us
secure the capital. Canadians are not
all wheat growers, there is a goodly
proportion of them mine makers and
prospectors. Let us show capital, in-
Vesto|S;- that we have -the ore. Send
ore samples as under and make:-it^
personal't;Jmatter to send your own
and induce your neighbor to send
samples also. The success of mining   will   build   up   the   home   town.
Send a brief description of the property from whence the ore comes.'
'I wish,to call the attention of your
readers who are owners of mining
property that we desire to secure an
jB^hibit for 1914 that will be the most
complete of any gathered in the province.
'We want ores that would attract
attention to yourgiateict. The showing on blocks of ore has proved very
popular and each season we are able
to trace capital coming in oh some
of them.
'From this collection we shall select
the ores we will send to the London
and San Francisco exhibition in 1915.
'A feature we have worked out that
will be of much value to the visitor
is that analyses will be made of the
ores and we will answer the question
so often asked: What are the contents of this ore?
'We shall have made- working tests
of 100 samples of 200 pounds. These
will be selected so as to well coyer
the province, and will be of values, to
the owner who desires to place Sfiifa
property with capital. '? ;
■""''Samples are tov be^mailed to nie at
424 Pacific bljck, Vancouver, as soon
as convenient, so they can be given
to the*^iemists for analysis, during
slack times. From these selections
will be made for the mill test lots.
We shall have these tests run throiigh-
the year so as to give those who make
discoveries during the coming year a
chance.'
Copper Market.
Copper metal prices are holding
firmly on the basis of 16% at 16%
cents for electrolytic and 16% cents
for casting.   - - Js8tf-
Now that consumers generally have
supplied their requirements for thefrej
mafnrTer of the year, dealers look for
lower prices before the next buying
movement begins.
Cable advices show a reduction of
nearly 15,000,000 pounds, in the foreign visible supply of copter in September, a reduction of more than 40,-
000,000 pounds in the past six months.
Exports of. copper from the United,
states in September 34,314 tons, aii
average of 1144 tons a day against ah
average of 1120 tons a day in August,
and an average of 938 tons a day in
July.
KEREMEOS FRUIT BEST.
J. J. Armstrong of Keremeos was iii
Princeton on a business &\sit recently
and speaks in reassuring terms of
the prosperity of his district. The rer
turns for fruit have been satisfactory
this year and the crop was one of the
hest ever grown. Some $1500 worth
of fruit was shipped to Princeton in
September to be distributed to the
camps and-, homes in this section.
Keremeos fruit growers are alive to
the importance of the market presented here and as this market expands
year by year they will be prepared to
cater to it. Keremeos peaches are the
finest grown in any part of the world,
other kinds of fruit being equally delectable in flavor, size and beauty.
Mr. Armstrong's brother has built a
$20,000 residence at Keremeos which
is equipped with swimming pools, Roman baths, etc., and which he will
occupy for week-end visits from Vancouver.
A reform league has been started in
Grand Forks to combat certain evils.

The  'Seeandbee,' a new side-wheel

Periodically there is a discussion oi
the proposal to build a tunnel beneath the English Channel between

the scheme would be financially prifn.
abie Is perhaps an open question;
although statistics seem to show thai
there would be sufficient freight an
passenger business to show a profit;
Political and military objections, 01
the ground that such a tunnel wouk
deprive England of its insular position, are losing weight, and prejudice
on that score is disappearing.

JJUNIffG fft^SIMILKAMEEN.
Mining must always be Jjie, lead-
ingrfindu'stry and backbone of the
Siniilkameen. In saying this no
thought of minimizing the importance of other industries is held for
a moment. But it is to impress
probabla.;,investors in mineral properties here that emphasis is laid
on the mining industry. For, it is
a sipgular fact that any mining enterprise conducted on sound business lines in this district has been
a su8^s%_yji£|ier i»:>-pro|g§don or
development. Not a single failure
can be recalled of the many mining
enterprises undertaken. This is a
record of which justifiable pride is
a reasonable sequence. It proves
that minerals are plentiful, and yet
not in such promiscuous abundance
that the removal of a shovel full of
placer anywhere will reveal gold,
platinum and diamonds, nor the
blasting of rock always' uncover
pay ore. In this no attempt is
made to mislead, but simply to point
ont the opportunities and inducements for discovery and development of mineral ground.
Some*, ea&ellent   mining  companies  anH   individual   owners have
invested heavily in the district, and
although  progress  has  been  slow
through lack of transportation and
other minor discouragements, none
of them   have any  but  optimistic
reports as to assay values and body.
With a virgin mineral field of great
extent and containing almost every
variety of precious and base metals,
coal,   etc.,   and   with    prospective
smelteries, gold dredges and coking
works, what more could an investor
wish for ?    Here, in Princeton, is a
producing coal mine and some forty
businesses,   including  three of the
most  powerful  banks  in America,
a  large cement factory turning out
a first class article at East-Princeton
and at Copper mountain  extensive
mining operations  are in progress.
Other projects  and commercial enterprises,   yet  in   their  embryonic
stage,   will   leap  into full life and
activity as soon as the direct routts
to the coast via'the  transprovincial
motor .road   and the   railway  are
ready  for  traffic.     Next  year, or
^arly in 1915, should  see  these di
rect routes completed. Then the
whole Similkameen may be expected to prosper to that degree to
which position and resources entitle
her.* Meanwhile, the time for investment and prospecting is most
inviting.

The militarism being sown broadcast through pamphlet and newspaper can do no good to the people
of Canada or any other nation.
What are the effects of war and
what does militarism produce?
Look la t the bloody pages of history:
see their misery, woe, murder,
rapine, hunger, disease, butchery
of women and children and the
nation impoverished with debt.
Militarism would make the young
men of the country obedient, not to
their ruler, but'to a lot of military
snobs in buttons and boots and
incur heavy burdens for standing
armies and idle men. Canada has
not an enemy, and has about as
much need of a standing army and
squatting navy as a dog would
have for two tails.

The sword, gun and powder are
giving place to that peace and
goodwill proclaimed nearly 2000
years ago. International peace
courts and arbitration tribunals are
recognized among sane people as
the .better way. Able bodied men
are required to grow wheat and
open up our vast hinterland, not to
don blaize uniforms and be very
obedient to a lot of swaggering
officers who pant for 'glorious' war.
Teach our children no mimic war
or the use of murderous weapons,
they may learn discipline and honorable obedience without them.

COME ACROSS, YOU.
If you like the old town best,
Tell 'em so.
If you'd have her lead the rest,
Help her grow.
When there's anything to do,
Let the fellows count on you,
You'll feel  better when it's through,
Don't you know?
If you want to make a hit,
Get  a name.
If the other fellow's it,
Who's to blame?
Spend your money in the town
Where you pull the shekels down.
Give  the  man that kicks  a  frown—
That's the game.
If you're used to giving knocks,
Change your style.
Throw bouquets instead of rocks
For a while.
Let the other fellow roast,
Shun him as you would a ghost,
Meet him hemmer with a boast,
And a smile.
When a stranger from afar
Comes  along,
Tell him who and what we are—
Make it strong.
Needn't flatter, needn't bluff,
Tell the truth and that's enough,
Join the Boosters—that's the stuff,
We belong.

FRUIT  PACKING  SCHOOLS.
The provincial department of agriculture, through its horticultural
branch, will continue this year its
policy of conducting practical schools
of instruction in fruit packing
throughout the fruit districts of the
province. The work begun four years
ago in a small way has been very
much extended each- year to meet the
requirements. The results in the improvements of the fruit-packing methods throughout the province have been
very gratifying and amply justify the
continuation of the work. At the
present time over 80 per cent of the
fruit- packed commercially and for
fruit exhibits in this province, is packed by pupils of government packing
schools.
A letter without the name of the writer
has been received from Copper Mountain.
It contains the information that Pete
DeCoux received in his new home a
number of invited Wall street friends on
Monday night and had plenty of smoke
and other enjoyments. The letter further
states that the big Copper Mountain
mineral deal will go through.

WEALTH OF STATIONS
Karl Helfferich, director of the
Deutsche Bank, has completed his report
to the Kaiser of the wealth of the German
nation. It will be published a few weeks
hence and will be sold for $30.
From proof sheets it appears that Dr.
Helffrich estimates the aggregate total
wealth of Germany at from $75,000,000,-
000 to $78,000,000,000. The wealth of
France is placed at $60,000,000,000, that
of England from $57,000,000,000 to $65,-
000,000,000 and that of the United States
at $124,000,000,000. The German pej
capita wealth is placed at from $1,100 to
$1,200, that of France, $1,425; England,
from $1,250 to $1,385, and the United
States $1,360.
The annual income of the German
people is placed at ^between $9,000,000,-
000 and $10,000,000,000, of which about
one-sixth is used for public purposes.
The amount used for private purposes
could nojt be ascertained definitely, but
is estimated approximately at $6,000,
000,000.
From   the  deposits  in   German   commercial and savings banks it  is  deduced
that the Germans save  $1,000,000,000 a J
year.   Adding the automatic increase in
values to the estimates the annual  in-1
crease in the aggregate wealth is $2,500,-1
000,000. i
The government has issued a map in
colors which shows where aviators may
and where they may not flv. They must
not go within twelve to fifteen miles of
Metz or the surrounding fortresses. A
similar prohibition, which varies in
distances, applies to all fortified places.

IMPROVE  YftpR  STOCK.
As announced early in the season,
the Dominion Live Stock Branch has
this year undertaken a distribution *f
pure bred male animals throughout
Canada on a somewhat extensive scale.
In inaugurating this policy the aim
has been to aid sections where pure
bred sires. were lacking and to encourage new communities in following
an intelligent system in breeding.
This form of assistance has proven
very popular and during the' past few
months a large number of bulls and
stallions have been placed in various
parts of the country in the hands of
local associations formed specially for
the' purpose of handling and maintaining them. All animals placed remain
the property of the Department of Agriculture, the local associations assuming the responsibility for their
maintenance and management' under
the general -supervision of officers of
the Live Stock Branch.
The distribution of bulls and stallions having been brought to a close
for this year the opportunity is now
open to deal with applications for
boars and rams. Full information regarding the rules governing the distribution and the procedure to be followed in forming the necessary organization may be had upon application to the Live Stock Commissioner,
Ottawa.. As it is the intention to consider only such requests as are forwarded before October 20th, it will be
necessary for districts desiring to take
advantage of this offer tp act promptly.
