G:, FRIDAY, JUNE 22, 1917  $1.00 PER YEAR  VISITS CITY  Explained-Certain Clauses'Of  Mining.Bill at Meeting  Monday Night  Hon. William Sloan, minister of  mines in the Brewster government,  Mrs. Sloan, J. ��������� Ei W.Thompson,  member for Grand Forks, and Mr..  D. Dunn, private secretary to the  minister, arrived in the city' on  Satuiday from tbe Kooleoay. The  party spent Saturday night in Phoenix, and on Sunday they enjoyed  a day's, outing at Christina lake.  Monday Mr. Thompson took the  minister, Mrs. Sloan and Mr. Dunn  for an auto trip to Franklin camp,  where the day was spent in inspecting the various mining properties. Tuesday was devoted to fish-  . ingrat Christina lake, and on Wed-  < ^.v nesday the four members of the  party left for Rossland.  A meeting, at which Mayor Acres  presided, was held in the board of  trade rooms on Monday evening in  order to give tbe prospectors, thf  miners and the citizens generally an  .! "' opportunity to meet'the minister  informally and to discuss with him  matters of moment to the district.  J. E. W. Thompson, our member  and   chairman   of  the   house committee   on   mining,   was   the  first  speaker, and reviewed   exhaustively  the  mining " legislation   enacted by  the late session.    He spoke very enthusiastically of the minister's earnest desire to further the, mining  industry of the province.    The  part};  " had inspected all the camps  in  the  district.    The most urgent needs of  the district at a present was a  road  from Christina to Paulson and a few  short   branch ' roads in   the North  Fork district, and he  feit confident  that these  would   be   forthcoming.  With   the   ministers  consent, JVr.  Thompson made the announcement  ���������that*P. B. Feeland, of   the   Granby  company at Phoenix, had b^een  appointed   resident  mining   engineer  of this district, and he would   make  his headquarters Hin Grand   Forks.  He also stated that another member  of tbe government,   Hon. Mr. Pat-  tullo, minister of lands, would  visit  the city during the summer.  Leo Mader gave a vivid description of the visible and potential ore  wealth of the Paulson district, describing the devolopment work now  being done at tbe Inland Empire  mine and other properties in the  camp. A road from Christina lake  to Paulson, a distance of about  eleven miles, would be of material  benefit to the district.  drilling and   free   assaying  by the  government for prospectors.  Hon. Mr. Sloan said this was thiB  first visit to" southern British Columbia. All hiB activities heretofore had been confined to the coast,  to the north,and to the Yukon.. He  was surprised to find mining industry .as far advanced here as it it. He  was was making a tour of the province in order to familiarize himself  with the requirements of the various  section. He had gathered a great  many facts on his trip, and he was  sure that the tour would be produc  tive of a great deal of good. At  Fernie, from which town he had  just come, he had impressed on the  coal mine operators the undesira-  bility of exporting coke to the  United States while it was needed to  keep the British Columbia smelters  in blast. He did wish to make any  rash statement regarding the end of  the coal strike in the Crow's Nest,  bpt he thought he was safe in saying that the miners would return to  work inside of ten days and that  the smeltar in this city would soon  be in operation again.  Regarding the construction of  roads in the district for mining purposes, he did not see any difficulties  in the way of promising this request; but, speaking in'.a lighter  vein, he remended those present  that Mr. Thompson, as chairman  of the mining committee, was practically his boss, and if they did not  get.everything they asked for they  could blame Mr. Thompson and not  him.  The term "blue sky" law, he said,  was an importation from tbe States.  In   former  days  tbe  only limit to  wild-cat schemes.for which  stock  was sold  was the   blue sky,-   That  was  derivation of  tbe  term.    The  law  was  designed ��������� to put a stop to  "wildcattrng" in mining.    It  would  not prevent the owner of  a   promis-.  ing property from  stocking it and.  selling shares; but it would  compel  him to put the money obtained  for  the sale of these shares  into development  work,  and  the   purchaser  had a right to expect this  much at  least for his money.  Regarding the construction of a  railway to Franklin.be said it would  be difigcult to induce any company  to build unless sufficient tonnage  could be shown. The stationing of  a resident mining" engineer here  would do much to solve this problem.  The diamond drilling clause of  he bill had been misquoted by  some of the newspapers of the interior, especially the Nelson News.  It was not the imention of tbe , government to go onto a claim owner's  property and diamond drill it  whether he wanted it done or not.  If a mining man wanted any diamond drilling done, he would have  to make application to the govern:,  ment- for it, and pay for it at actual  coet either in cash or royalties.   But  Another,. .Grand -- Eorks..Man  Makes Supreme Sacrifice  For the Empire  Yesterday's casualty list contained the name of C. A. Coughlan,  who about nine days ago was reported wounded, as having died of  wounds.  Mr. Coughlan was employed by  P. Bums & Co. in this city for a  number of years, and had a large  number of . friends here. For, two  or three years he acted, as manager  of the local branch.. He enlisted at  Nelson, where he was employed at  the time, and left here for Vernon  with the 54th battalion. He is survived by his wife, who is living in  "Vancouver at present. A brother-  in law of deceased, H. Lutley, is a  resident of this city.  RECOMMENDS GOVERNMENT TAKE OVER MINES  In tbe house last Wednesday, R.  F Green, M.P. for Kootenay, who  failed to settle the coal strike  in District 18, recommended that  the government take over the mines  and operate them.  The Obscure Mr. Hoover  Whenever the United States  senate indulges in the luxury of an ex  himself one of the master mining  engineers of the world, with an income far beyond that of most of the  jack leg lawyers who are now accidentally sitting in our senate. Wherever the engineers who were doing  tbe world's big work foregathered,  Hoover was known and admired and  welcomed.       ^ '  But it was the war which gave the  man his splendid opportunity.  Dropping his own life's work and  the big emoluments it brought him,  he devoted himself, without reserve  and without pay, to the1 Christ-like  service of feeding and clothing 11,-  ,000,000 Belgians and Frenchmen.  In all the history of civilization  there has been no job like it, and in  all history no such job was ever  carried on with greater economy,  efficiency, honesty and courage. No  history of the war can ever be writ  ten without devoting pages' of glowing praise to Herbert C. Hoover.  His name will be known and honored when the nonentities in the  present seuate have ceased to exert  any more influence on men's  thoughts and affairs than the silent  "p" in the word pneumonia.���������  Pittsburg Post.  RECRUITING WEEK  ���������t      IN THE STATES  President Wilson has designated  the week beginning June 23 as recruiting;, week. The president asks  for seventy thousand volunteers.  The proclamation follows:  "I hereby designate the period  June 23 to 30 next as recruiting  week for the regular army, and call  upon unmarried men between 18  and 40 who have no dependents  and   are   not   engaged  in pursuits  First Flight Thrills Not So  Numerous As Average ^  Person Expects  ecutive session from which the mere vifcaJlv uecessary for the prosecution  public and the reporters are kept  out, some ��������� misrepresentative can be  relied upon to display himself as a  pluperfect ass. Our so-called "upper  chamber" had " such a session  the other day and in the course  of much denunciation of the  food bills one master-mind spoke of  Herbert C. Hoover as a "man who  had emerged from obscurity only a  short time ago and whom the ad-  minstration now wants to make a  food dictator."  ���������Long before' the war, it just so  happens    that   Hoover   had made  of the war, to present themselves for  enlistment during the week designated to the number of seventy  thousand."  NOTES OM MANY SUBJECTS  F. M. Kerby commended the; the government had reason to sus-  appointnient of a resident mining pect that there were immense de-  engineer for the'district. It was a. posits of iron ore, now lying idle,  very good move, and would do on the coast and in other portions of  more than anything else that has the province, and these tbe depart  been done to ascertain the mineral,' ment had decided to diamond drill  wealth of tbe district. He also in order to ascertain the iron wealth  asked for an interpretation of the! of the country add, to promote the  "blue sky" clause in the mining iron and steel industry of British  bill. .Columbia.  Fred Clark urged the; completion j The free assaying clause, said Mr.  of the railway the Franklin, camp, Sloan, was not being advertised very  and ������. J. Averill asked for further industriously, for the reason that  information     regarding     diamond there were resident assayere   in a  great many towns and cities, and  the government did not'wish to run  in opposition to them. The government could not undertake to do  free assaying for mining companies,  or for person? not actively engaged  in mining, but if a bona fide prospector sent in a sample it would be  assayed, or analyzed if be so desired, free of charge.  Mayor   Acres   was   the    closing  speaker.   On behalf of those present  and    the    citizens    generally,   he  thanked the minister for his visit to  the city, and hoped that   he  would  made many more trips to  this  district   during ;his   tenure of office.  He regretted that the exact  date of  his coming had been kept so secret,  thus   preventing    a    more    fiting  reception    to    the   minister.    The  mayor   concluded   by  saying  that  ,the people  of  the coast  were too  scantily acquainted with this section  of the province, and in order  to  become better known  to  us,  and   to  learn  more   of our resources, they  should visit us ofteuer.  And now comes the "blimp" as  the latest war machine. In appearance it is like a perfecto cigar���������one  that tapers rapidly toward both ends  from a fat middle; in effect it is a  small Zeppelin, designed to carry  only'three or four men besides the  pilot, but capable of flying at a  height of two miles, and of making  a speed of forty five miles an hour.  It will be used chiefly for eoastal  scoutirjg. Sixteen such craft are  now building in the  United States,  Before the Battle of tbe Welder-  ness Gen. Sheridan spent three  weeks and used up many thousand  men and horses in making raids the  sole purpose of which was to get information about Lee's left. "All  that he accomplished," says a modern commentator, "one aviator  could have done in a morning's  flight."  The new Russian loan, like the  American war-bond issue, is officially known as "the Liberty Loan."  The amount is three   billion rubles  In a letter to his father in this  city, George Traunweiser, who is now  in the flying corps of the British  army.gives the following experiences  whieh he has had in learning to be  a birdman:  " . . .1 reported at 5 a.m.  at the aerodrome, and after a wait  for the rest to rise, finally it came  my turn, and I was told to put on  my helmet. Oh! the joyous thrill,  the expectancy, and the little tingling sensation in my* stomach. It  was all so new and wonderful, that  I couldn't help being a little bit  nervous, though I wouldn't have  miesed-'it for the world.  "I crawled in and  they started  her up.    Such a noise it did  make!  And the instructor told me to  put  my   hands   on  the   controls���������just  lightly���������and take note of what he  did.   Well, before I knew just what  was happening we  were  up about  100 feet, and the fields seemed to be  moving' terribly fast underneath'-us; "'  but had   no  sensation of  fear, and  it   did   seem  so  safe and sd easy.

The big, unwieldy machine seemed  to flatten out and come   to a stop.  Dad,   right   then   I   thanked  the  little bit of luck that got me through,  for then I kuew that I   was simply  madly in lovely with flying.    I was  a trifle disappoi nted in that I didn't  get as many thrills or  nerve cracking moments as I had expected; and  though we were doing 60 miles you  would hardly believe you were moving unless you put your  band over  the side.

OFFICE:    COLUMBIA AVENUE AND LAKE STREET.  ������  FRIDAY, JUNK 22, 1917  The announcement made today from  Ottawa to the effect that the government has  decided to operate the coal mines in District 18,  and that a commissioner has been appointed  to take charge of them, will be welcome news  to this district, as well as to mining and smelting centres throughout the province.   In view  of the present deadlock  between  the operators and the miners, the government took the  only course  that it possibly could take to  bring about a resumption of work in our leading industry.    If the commissioner appointed  possesses a good executive head, the smelters  of British Columbia should  soon be in possession of an ample coke  supply���������enough to  operate at full capacity���������and there should be  no break in the supply until after the war, at  least.    With this prospect in view, conditions  in many sections of the province  are brighter  than they were a week ago.  the beginner. The'Colonist says it has had  many years' experience with human affairs,  but two things it never observed. It has never  known a professional man to object to having  his name in connection with a case with which  he has been connected, nor to protest against  its having been mentioned in such connection.  But���������whisper it softly���������it has known professional men to be very wroth because their  names were not so mentioned. Some day,  when we are feeling just right, we are going  to print an account of a case in court and will  simply say that both sides were represented  by lawyers, or of an accident, and say a physician was sent for, and next day enjoy seeing  the heathen rage.  <r  =^  The political atmosphere at Ottawa has not  clarified very much during the week. Sir  Robert wants conscription without consulting  the electorate. Sir Wilfrid also professes to  want conscription, but wishes to secure a  mandate from the people first, In addition,  thts Liberal leader has declared himself as being favor of conscription of wealth. Sir Robert's wealth conscription scheme seems to be  rather mild, while Sir Wilfrid has not yet  divulged his plan. In another week we should  . know more about these momentous questions.  Conscription of wealth is a new and an ad  vanced policy, and people make sorts of  guesses regarding the meaning of the term.  Some interpret it as meaning confiscation of  wealth, while others seem to think that it is  only a system of mild taxation that would, in  the end, have to be paid by laboring class.  The kind of wealth conscription that we  should like to see brought into vogue would  be for the government to conscript, or commandeer, a portion of the wealth of our millionaires and money kings, use it without in-  teaest during the war and then return it to  them. Men are conscripted in this manner���������  why not money? Surely a man's life is as sacred as a few dirty banknotes.  We despise the, newspapers that are conr  tinuously whining about the hard conditions  brought upon the trade by the war. If tlie  publishers are not willing to assume' some of  hard luck borne by the majority of the populace, they , should get into some other business���������or enlist.  t?fe Bride's Choice  Nowadays is a haudsome piece, of Cut Glass.

The Ottawa government appears to be desirous that the anniversary  should be observed in a fitting manner by all  municipalities this year.  In 1867 Canada embraced an area of 540,-  000 square miles, with a population of 3,600,-  000. In 1917 her area measured 3,729,665  square miles, with a population of about  7,600,000.
