Donaldson,  McArdle,   Schnitter    and    Sheads  -were present at  the regular meeting  of.the city council on Monday night.  Dr?

About fifty patients, he  . safd, could be accommodated at the  local hospital. The council endorsed the doctor's views and promised him their hearty  co-operation:  The   medical ' health ' officer   re-  Sported   having   taken    Samples   of  milk from "the  local   milkmen  and  t sted" the same.    All the samples  had been satisfactory with   the  exception of two, "which had fallen below the standard.   - '  ,��������� A letter from the director-genera!  of the National Service-commirsion  ' asked  for; the " co operation of the  - council iusseeing-'that as,;mariy'~ as  possible of the national service cards  - were filled out and   returned.    The  council-promised  to  comply -with  the request."%  Aid McArdle reported that he  had accoraptnied Sam Shannon to  the Old Aden's home at Kamloops,  and that the old gentleman had  been safely landed there. Mr. Mc  irdle stated that he had made a  thorough inspection of the Jjhome,  and found it to be a splendid institution, where'the inmates received  ,. every attention.  The usual budget of monthly  accounts were ordered to be paid.  The customary election resolution  was adopted John A. Hutton was  appointed returning officer. Nominations will be made on the Sth of  ���������January,.,and the poll, if required,  will betaken on the 11th.  Were it not for the prospector  there wouldn't be any mines. He it  is who takes bis pack on his back  and his life in his hands, who always outfits fqr a trip about 50 per  cent shy of the grub which he  knows he will need, depending on  the porcupine, "fool-hen, and less  easily obtained game to eke out his  existence .while he is away out in  tbe wilds.  Sometimes he ' finds something  gocd and sometimes he draws a  blank. Sometimes he leaves his  bones at tbe bottom of a cliff or in a  gully where in future years they  may be discovered by an anthropologist and classified in the prohis-  toric section of the genus homo.  And perhaps the scientific sharp  will be right. The prospector must'(lots of time the prospector doesn't  be wide across the shoulders and pack a tent) could be seen by the  mirrow between the eyes, to be able'thousands on every range within  to hold his job. j packing distance of natural or arti-  National Service Week is drawing very near, and the  fact that the first week of the New Year bears that title is  something in which everyone in Canada has an interest. The  men are interested because it is obligatory upon each of  them, between the ages of 16 and 65 years, to fill out one of  the cards which the government is sending to them through  the post office authorities. The women are interested because their co-operation is being invited, in seeing that their  men folk attend to this important duty. The children are  interested because their school teachers have explained to  them the meuning of National Service and the way-in which  father and the.big brothers at home have to reply to the various questions.  To write- in the answers 'and return the card promptly is  a good New Year's resolution throughout the Dominion, and  it has the advantage' of being easy of fulfilmet. It only  means a few minutes' careful thought. - The postman in the  cities gets the hard work, for:he not only delivers the cards;  he is responsibly also for their proper return. Prompt mailing of the answers will make the postman's work very much  easier: .  ���������  National Service means that we are to get into that  frame of mind, which will cause us to .think of the needs of  the country, to realize that the interests of the.State - have a  greater claim on us than our-self-interests. .This applies;to  eve^y"one7from the highest in the land, to "the lowest.. /The  Prince of Wales' motto, "I Serve," may well be the motto of  every-citizen of the British empire at this time:      .  There are' many, ways of serving ��������� the nation besides going "to the front. The man on the farm and tbe mechanic in  a workshop may be serving the nation as usefully as- tne man  in the trenches. Every man should be doing the work which  represents his most efficient service to his country.  The war is teaching us, or should be teaching us, great  lessons; Terrible as "are its effects, those who have faith in  Canadian manhood hope and believe that the nation will  emerge from this experience-a stronger and a better people.  If the meaning of National Service is thoroughly grasped and  properly understood, if the government's call for information  is responded to in the right spirit, the coming year will be  the banner year in Canada's history.  trail of economic privation. The  prospector must find the mineral  upon which they are to report.  Therefore, the prospector is of the  most important unit in the great  machinery of mining enterprise. He  is willing to take all the physical  risks, but he wants a fair shake. He  wants a measure���������only a small  measnre���������of appreciation for the  part he play3 in this industry.  It is possible to again people the  bills of this province with the backpacking, bean-eating, mineral-finding, never-say-die fraternity.  When they find that our own  ppople are taking an interest in mining, wheu they find that there is a  government in power which will  save them a'-decent break for the  work they do, then they will come  back.���������W. R. H.  ors, but who. can name half a doz  en who are now living in affluence?  It seems to be an obsession of the  prospestor to discover wealth and  let the other fellow take advantage  of it, and this, the other fellow is  always ready to do. Seldom does  the original locator of a claim reap  the reward of his labors. He is a  simple minded cuss, without a  modicum of knowledge in business  methods. When he goes up against  the city sharks, good-night for him.  Of course, there are exceptions,  but it would be a trite saying to remark that the exception proves the  rule. When these exceptions occur, if the life of such a prospector  were looked up it would be found  that before becoming a prospector  he had been something else,and that  he made his find before the pros  pecting bug had him down and out.  Just because tbe prospector is  such a consummate child of nature,  it must not be conceded that he is  an absolute idiot. There was a time  in British Columbia when the prospectors' tents  or camp fire   smokes  a prospector in the hills, it is an  event. The days of packing a plug  of chewing to enhance'the gladness  of a meeting with one of these Bedouins of the hills is over. The plug  would, before it could be put to its  natural uses, be worn out through  attrition with the sides of the pocket  or become atrophied with age. Why?  Partly because every time the  prospector wanted even a pleasant  smile from the mining recorder'of  his particular, district it cost bun  $2.50. AIro because if he located  anything good he had to wait a lifetime to get transportation facilities  for handling his ores. Also, because  Canadian and British investors in  mines were getting into Tonapab,  into Cripple Creek, into Mexico, and  other districts to the south.  The colleges of Canada are annually producing a crop of full fledged  mining engineers, who will come  into competition with tbe crops of  the previous seasons and with experts from across the line. The latter come and go as they are sent by  their masters and called back, but  the former are supposed to make  their living in Canada. Without the  prospector the whole tribe of these  trained engineers must cither   seek  PUNT AI  LUCILE DREYFUS  Property .South        Me Line  Now Shippisj ^   j the  Granby  The erection of a 2000-ton ' mill  at Princeton and the construction of  a railway line to Copper mountain,  thirteen miles, is pioposed by the  Canada Copper Corporation, Ltd.,  according to a report from New  York. This company operates the  Greenwood smelter. The cost of  building the mill and railway is estimated at less than 82,000,000..  Erection of the. large plant'has  been preceded by the installation of  a~50-ton experimental "mill "to be  used in-working out the final prob-  lams of. a flotation process for the  2000-ton plant. A pumping equipment has been established to raise  the water from the Similkameeu  river to .the plant, 6000 feet, and to  an elevation of 1700 feet.  "At Copper mountain the company is developing a new low-grade  porphyry copper property in which  ore approximating 11,000,000 tons  has been developed," says thestate-  ment. "This ore has an average  value of 1.75 per cent copper and  about 20 cents recoverable gold, and  silver to the ton. A recovery of 80  per cent ana a profit of 5 cents a  pound are expected on a basis of 14  to 15 cents for copper.  "The 2000-foot tunnel the com  pany is driving has attained the  UOO-foot point, this distance having been driven since July 1. The  Copper Farm ore body was cut at  the 1000 foot point, and tbe Vancouver at the 1300 foot point. Arrival at the Sunset, the principal ore  body, is expected at the 2000-foot  point. The tunnel is advancing at  the rate of nearly twenty feet a day.  The number of employees at this  mine is 200."  Operations in the tunnel were preceded by diamond drilling in a large  area. It occupied several years,  and proceeded under the direction  of Frederic Keffer of Spokane.  The Lucile Dreyfus mine, near  Danville, is shipping about two cars  of high grade ore per-week to the  Granby smelter. This is one of the  oldest mining properties in Ferry  county, and a number of years ago  shipped some rich ore. Until a few  months ago, when the present operator leased it, the property had  been idle for more than seven years'.  The company will install improved  machinery in a short time with a  view of considerably increasing the  output.  Five furnces are again being operated at the Granby smelter. Tbe  reason for three furnaces being cold  is the large shipments of matte from  Anyox which is now being run  through the converters at the local  plant, aDd the slowness of the arrival of coke from the Crow's Nest.  The first vessel of the fleet of the  Pacific Steamship compan'y to deliver copper ore in British Columbia  for smelting purposes, the Admiral  Watson, has arrived at Anyox, B.C.,  with a shipment of 500 tons of tbe  product of the properties of the  Fidalgo Mining company at Land-  lock bay, Alaska. The ore was consigned to the Granby company.  The Greenwood smelter produced  3,455,578 pounds of copper and  8,555 ounces of gold and more thau  33,000 ounces of silver in the first  eight months of the current year.

The Fun of Farming  In the old farming cycle the crop  that brought the best prices one  year was sure to be overplanled the  next. But the philosophy of diversification has appealed to the common sense of the farmer 'generally.  It" makes a better rounded life ou  tbe farm if there are many diverse interests. The chickens bring  a steady and welcome income to the  farmer's wife. The cattle and hogs  are snre.profit makers, and, besides,  engage the best skill of their owner.  Many farmers are just finding out  that bees are mighty interesting" as  well as highly profitable, without  involving a great deal of labor. Soon  the beekeeper learns that fruit trees  bel d out the bees, and are Jbem-  selves induced to bring forth more  and better fruit by the pollonizing  helpfulness of the little honey gatherers. The fact is, farming was  never of such absorbing interest as  it is today. But it should be diversified, so that the monotony of  raising main crops may be chased  away by the fun of pursuing profitable specialties.

C.  OFFICE:    COLUiMJJIA AVENUE AND LAKE STREET.  FRIDAY, DECEMBER 29, 1916  Germany's proposed peace parley seems to  be doomed to failure. The entente powers  do not propose to patch up a half-measure  peace���������a peace which at best would only  mean a cessation of hostilities until Germany  regained her breath, so to speak, when the  present world-tragedy would have to be re-  enacted���������and the central powers have not yet  been sufficiently punished to accept a humiliating peace. It may take the allies another  year to bring them to their knees, but, judging by the present temper of all the entente  powers, peace will not come before this act  has been accomplished.  that the offenders "tanked up" on prosperity,,  since Sp okane is a strictly temperance town.  M. E. Prendergast, a practical mining   man  with twenty years' experience in British   Columbia,   in  an  interview   with  the   Toronto  News,   advances   the   opinion   that   nothing  would   so much   conduce to rapid mining development in this province as the formation of  local syndicates to prove up the values of the  lowr-grade copper propositions preparatory  to'  their being taken hold of by mining companies  which would operate  them.    lie  says   these  local syndicates "should advance such properties to such a state of. development that they  would be attractive to the large mining companies  who   have the capital an.d tho experience requisite to bring them to a state of ultimate dividend payers.    This can best be done  by the syndicate system, groups of men combining without necessarily going through   the  formalities ' of   company   organization,   each  man putting up his share of  the  expense  involved, which   would   not be   hi<A\ enough to  embarrass any' of   the   syndicate   members,  while the total would accomplish the  desired  object."  Self-announced mayoralty and aldermanic  candidates are not very., numerous in Grand  Forks this year. It may be that a number of  aspirants for civic honors are waiting to make  the.plunge at the last moment as dark horses.  If this should prove to.be the case, the entire  council for 1917 is likely to be composed of  black equines.  It was common talk on the streets a couple  of days ago that the salary question is likely  to play an important role in the forthcoming  civic election. This fact may account for the  shyness some of our citizens are displaying in  offering their services to the city.
