MONDAY, AUGUST 3  The French defeat the Germans in a bloody battle on  the French  frontier.  London, Eng.���������Sir Edward Grey's speech, in the House  today indicated that a violation of the neutrality of Belgium  by Germany would almost inevitably bring a British declaration of war.  The German ultimatum to Belgium threatened war  against that county, and is likely to cause a declaration of  war at any hour by Britain.  A special session of the Canadian parliament will be  called to vote money for.three dreadnoughts, now near completion in England, if the Old Country gets into war.  TUESDAY, AUGUST 4  Germany and Great Britain both declare war. Germany rejected the request that she observe the treaty with  Belgium, and England takes immediate action to uphold her  obligations.  A wireless is flashed to the British fleet to attack the  German armada" menacing the English shores.  A special session of the Ottawa parliament is . called.  .,The.-Dominion.can equip sixty thousand,soldiers. ..    ^  The president of the United States issues a proclamation  of neutrality.  Britain takes over all battleships now building in England for foreign nations.  WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 5  Britain eagerly awaits news of the navy; cannonading is  reported. It is believed that an action is progressing in the  North sea.  Belgian troops repulse the Germans in a bloody battle.  Thousands are killed and wounded.  German ultimatum to Italy, which may war on Austria,  is rnmored.  The steamer Lusitania runs away from German cruisers.  Tlie Dominion buys two submarines now on defence of  the Pacific coast.  *   A dispatch from  Copenhagen   states  that a German  squadron is bombarding Sveiborg, Sweden.  United States mobilizes army and navy to. protect  American neutality.  THURSDAY, AUGUST 6  Seventy-four German merchant vessels have been captured by Great Britain and 20 by France.  ���������'���������   i^n entire battalion ofthe German army was  killed  by  the Belgians.  Great Britain has accepted Canada's offer of 20,000  men,    A volunteer force will leave at once for England.  Great Britain hurries preparations to send an army  against the Kaiser's forces.  An unconfirmed report from Lsndon says that an engagement has taken place between the British and German  Meets. The dispatch says that nineteen German vessels were,  lost and eighteen captured, and that the British had six ships  sunk, including Admiral Callaghan's flagship, the Iron Duke.  The remaining German fleet is bottled up at the mouth of  the Elbe river.  The Germans again attacked the Belgians at Liege, and  the big forts slaughtered great numbers of the invaders.  Seven thousand Belgians have reported to Consul  Clarence de Sola in Montreal. They will be sent home as  soon as arrangements can be made.  The British cruiser Ampion struck a mine and sank.  Paymaster Gedge and 130 men were lost.  The Annual. Tables Show a  'Healthy Growth oiOur  Leading Industry  The members of the Grand Forks  corps of sharpshooters are now drilling  every every evening. Some of them  may yet see active service.  At the open air concert of the  Grand Forks band Wednesday even-  ikg u number of patriotic numbers  were rendered.  A heavy ruin is badly needed in  this valley. This has been the driest  summer that the oldest inhabitant can  remember.  The annual report of th-- mi,M<*tter  of mines for British Columbia for  19! 3 has hi en received by The Sun.  It is the most valuable annual report  hitherto compiled on the mineral industry, due mainly to the special rn-  ports bv outside engineers called iu  to assist the regular staff. As a result a much larger portion of the  mineral areas of the province has  been covered on this occassion than  hitherto," and the volume contains  information of exceptional value.  Thin is the result of the representations made to the minister by various public associations, and showR  the value of suggestions made by  such bodies in affecting an improved  condition in the administration of  the mines department.  The districts, covered by the spe  cial reports are: Cariboo and Slocan,  by W. Fleet   Robertson,   provincial  mineralogist; Lynn Creek   zinc   de  posits; Tulameen, Similkameen and  Boundary,' >by". Ji D���������Galloway, "assistant provincial mineralogist; Coast  Districts, by D. G. Forbes, and Lil-  looet   and   Kamloops,   by   W.   M.  Brewer.  The annual tables compiled by  the provincial bureau of mines furnish the most reliable information  obtainable as to the annual mineral  production and all estimates previously made are corrected to this  official return. The total production  for 1913 is placed at .$30,296,389.  With the -exception of 1912, when  the production amounted to $32,-  440,800, the year 1913 was. best in  the history of the mineral production of the province. Gold reached  $5,627,490, the highest year's' output on record. Silver reached $1,-  968,606, the highest since 1901.  Lead reached 55,364,677 pounds,  valued at 82,175,832, the highest  production of this metal since 1905.  Copper production was the highest  on record with the exception of 1912,  and amounted to 46,460,305 pounds,  valued at 87,094,4S9. Though the  quantity was not so large,the money  value of copper for ths year , 1906  1907 was better, owing to the higher  prices ruling for the metal. The  production of zinc was the highest  recorded since 1909, amounting to  0,578,768 pounds, valued at $324,-  421.  The falling off in the total mineral  production   for    1913, as  compared  with 1912, amounted to 81,114,402,  and this deficit is  mainly ������ccHinted  ' by the reduction in the coal   output  ' of Vancouver Island, due to tlie  In-  , bor troubles   there.    The deficit   in  1 this item amounted to   $2,046:614.  ,The lessened production flue to  the  B. C. Copper company running under capacity and to the falling off  in the copper value of the ores of B.  C. Copper and Granby eonipiuiier,  accounts for the deficiency in copper  HR AFFECTS  ing operations on the coast in 1912.  These figures show that the mineral industry of the province was not  injuriously affected.by the business  depresston and that but for the labor  troubles in coal mines of Vancouver  Island, the past year would have  been a record in mineral production.  It is noteworthy that although the  tonnage of coal fell off, thaV of coke  was the greatest in the history of  coal mining in the province.  The total mineral production of  British Columbia to the end of 1913  is placed at 8460,433,920, so that The management of the Granby  with the present year's production smelter in this city early in tbe week  the record will be within less than received instructions from F. M.  ��������� half a million dollars of the half Sylvester, general manager ofthe  billion mark. Few people realize company at Vancouver, to close the  what these figures mean in actual j smelter on Thursday. The instruc-  vvealth production, and fewer still j tions received at the - smelter stated  realize the importance to this prov-1 that the closing down of the estab-  ince of a source of wealth which has'lisbment was due  to  the   unsettled  Smelters and Mines Close on  --   Account of Unsettled-  Conditions  proved of such great value in the  face of the comparatively undeveloped'state of the mineral resources.  For the past three years the coast  districts have led all other sections  of the province in value of mineral  production, the figures for 1913 being 88.620,803. Boundary district is  second in importance with a production of S7,925,336, including Similkameen. West Kootenay takes third  place with a valuation of $7,092,107.  East Kootenay was the fourth largest producer for 1913 with a total  value of $5,947,935. , The coast districts show a big falling off as compared with 1912, when the produc- j  tion ofthis section reached its record of $11,095,556, the deficiency of  this section for the year thus  amounting to $2,474,753. This is  accounted for by the falling off in  the coal production on Vancouver  Island in consequence of the labor  troubles, and to the lessened amount  of building construction. Boundary  district showed a falling off amounting to $791,070, due to the smaller  copper production of the Granby and  B. C. Copper smelters. Both West  and East Kootenay show an increase  of production for the year, the increase in the former being $926,582,  and in the latter $224,931. Lillooet  showed an increase for tbe year of  $66,445, due to the gold output of  the Coronation mine. An important  feature of coast mineral production  is the cement industry. This has at-  taihed great importance on Vancouver Island, where there are two  works in operation. The value of  ment produced on Vancouver Island  last year was 81,280,000, and this  figure is likely to show a steady increase.  Gold leads the list of minerals pro  due.ed in the province, the value to  date amounting tu 8119,191,1 15, of  which 872,704.602 has been derived  from placers. Coal ranks next in  importance, the value having reached $142,06S,615. Copper ranks third  wiih a value of 880,818,051.    Silver  conditions in Europe.    The smelter  will be closed down indefinitely.  Tne British Columbia Copper  company's smelter at Greenwood  will also be shut down,the shortageof  ore and th'elow'.prioe of copper,being  given as the reasons for this move.  The original date set for the closing  down of this plant was September 1,  but it is now reported that the shutdown will occur this week.  The smelter of   the Consolidated  Mining   &   Smelting   Company  of  Canada, Limited, at Trail,   will  not  close   down,   according   to   R.  H.  Stewart, manager   of   the   concern.  Mr. Stewart states. that   he   haB received no instructions , to   close . the  smelter   nor   have   any of the company's mining properties which  are  shipping- regularly   to   the   smelter  ceased operations.  The Boston and Montana smelter  of the Anaconda Copper Mining  company, operating at Graat Falls,  Mont., has suspended work in consequence of disturbed conditions in  Europe, preventing the, company  from marketing its copper abroad or  from receiving settlement for copper  already hi transit to foreign lands.  The Granby mines at Phoenix  have been closed down.  CUSTOMS RECEIPTS  R. R.

REPORT OFTHE  S MINISTEI  -   (Concluded from, Page 1.)  Dominton. The only standard mineral in which the province makes no  showing- as yet is iron, but as the  iron ore resources here are at least  as great as those of any other province, the time is not far distant when  the iron and steel industry will be  developed here and use made of another important available mineral  resource.  British Columbia now has 110  shipping metal mines, employing  -3880 men, while 95 properties are  under development, employing 398  men. The coalmines employ 6443  men, making a total of 10,721 men  directly engaged in mining. Indirectly the industry supports practically the entire population of several towns and cities, and is also a  large factor in the business life of  the seaports.  The tonnage of 1913 amounted to  2,137,483 tons of eoal, 286,035- tons  coke and 2,663,809 tons of metalliferous ore?. The Boundary led the  metalliferous tonnage with 69.3 per  cent of the total; Rossland was second with 9.52 perv cent; coast dis  tricts ocenpied third place with 8.67  per cent; Slocan is placed fourth with  4.35 percent; Ainswortb ranks fifth  with 3.46 per cent; Nelson sixth  with 2.99 per cent; and East Kootenay occupies seventh place with  1.60 per cent.
