C, FRIDAY, JUNE 8, 1917  $1.00 PER YEAR  Discoverer Thinks It Will  Develop Into Important  Copper-Gold Mine .;.  Samples of ore heavily charged  with gold have been exhibited in  Spokaue by John Falconer, former  Butte miner, as part of the ledge he  discovered on the ranch near Danville owned by himself and a relative, former Judge Logsdon, says  the Spokesman Review.  "The vein, which is several inches  in width, lies in a contact of decomposed quartz and greenstone," Baid  Mr. Falconer. "Veins in kind are  also found elsewhere in the" decomposed mass, which appears to have  a large area.  "In the greenstone dike, which is  ��������� 100 feet wide, I have  opened three  veins, three to eight feet wide, containing good values in copper and a-  little gold.   I will trench   the  100-  ' foot body in search of other   veins.  At the point of  greatest promise I  will sink a shaft and drive a crosscut from the bottom  of   the 'shaft.  The conditions appear to be highly  favorable frir-the development t of���������' a  copper-gold mine of largesize.  "My wife and I have been prospecting in the neighborhood ever  since our marriage five years ago,  when I found a little float. Every,  afternoon when I came off shift on  the Virginia mine we resumed the  Bearch. Our industry seemed .to  have frightened some of our- neighbors, one of whom proved up.bur-  riedly as if to forestall the location  of a gold mine on hie ranch. But  the alarm was groundless, for the  ore was.found on our own farm.  "The judge.is "not so enthusiastic  over our discovery. The notoriety  seems to have embarrassed him a  little. = He says it has forced him to  put on a white shirt and collar on  going to Grand Forks."  should help instead of perhaps  consciously hindering.  .The'need for.such a rousing campaign is only too evident, particularly to,, men wbo have recently  been overseas and bad an opportunity to compare the willing service and sacrifice so general in Great  Britain" and France' with the detached, almost-apathetic attitude of  so many Canadians. Though the  war has been going almost three  years and though oui gallant overseas con tingents'have won undying  fame for .Canada^most of us here at  home have hardly yet waked up to  the real nature of the struggle in  which we are engaged and. tbe ne-  fcessity that we,, too, "do our bit" in  whatever way lies upon us.  It is just tbie detached' attitude  which has prevented Canada's whole  weight being felt/behind our divisions in France. From it the National Service board hopes to arouse  tbe nation, using straight-from the-  shoulder advertising ' as a potent  tneans to the desired'end.  GREEN CONFERRING  .    WITH COAL MINERS  Persons of Military Ase Not  < Allowed to Cross tlie"  Boundary Line  WIN-THE-WAR CAMPAIGN OP PUBLICITY  Ottawa, June G.���������Never has the  power of national publicity been so  convincingly demonstrated as in  the great British advertising campaigns, first for recruits, then for  supplementary supplies and equipment, and later for thrift and the  purchase of war savings  certificates.  Along the latter lines and the allied one of production, the National Bervice board of Canada  an-  noance the beginning of a series   of      Tfae  fo���������owi      is  tne   minimlirn  advertisements   which   should have and maximum temperature for each  the earnest   consideration   of every  day   during   the   past   week, as re  loyal citizen of the  Dominion.    To! corded by the government thermom  produce more, to wasteless, particu-'eter on K *'��������� LaW8' raDch:  Nothing further has. been announced regarding the conferences  held in Calgary by R. F. Green, ,M..  P., with the coal operators and  miners. The miners', policy committee, which with the exception of  two members has been visiting the  various camp6,' returned to Calgary  on Wednesday, and in all likelihood  will meet Mr. Green. Any advance  news received from the camps is to  the effect that the men are united  in their demands for the 30 per  cent increase.  Mr. Green is, however, optimistic  about an early settlement, although  he says there is nothing to announce  about such a step, -   ���������  GANADIANSNOW  PAY $8 flEAD3r������K  Eegulations   pasped-by   the Do  minion    government    to    prevent  eligible   men   of   military age from  leaving the country to   avoid   military service came into full effect on  Saturday   last   at   ports of   exit in  British    Columbia.      From    ������that  date   onward    no    male'; between  the, ages  of   18 aod  45 may. leave  Canada for the United States"; unless  he possesses a passport.   During the  time   which   elapsed   between  the  passage of the regulations and their  enforcement   immigration1' officials  exercised   their  discretion, but   on  Friday the necessary rormB and the  full regulations arrived from  Ottawa, and everyone  affected. by . the  order must now. have a passport or  he won't get past the officials at the  Douudary line.    During the snort  period that the matter  was   at   the  discretion   ot  immigration officials  no   geueral   effort   to   viulate   the  regulations was observed.    Tne im-  uiigrauon officials on the border in  this district have met.   with  practically nocases m wnicn men tried to  cross without having good reason to  do so.  Canadians going into the :United  States are now subject to the;',head  tax which is levied at the border. It  is $8. Until the first of last month  Canadians were not charged the  head tax," if they could show that  they had been resident of this country for three years.  . The tax is designed to bit those  who become permanent aesidents of  the United States. For that reason  is not charged to travelers who are  frequently crossing the border and  who are known to the United States  immigration officials. But those  wbo are not knwn have to pay tbe  head tax anyway. If they return  to Canada within a short period it  is refunded.   -  PUPILS'!

(���������Continued on Page 4-)  Lieut.-Col. Bullock Has Plan  to Put Stars and Stripes  on Firing Line  London,   June 4.���������Lieut.-Col. C.  Seymour Bullock, of the Canadian  army,  former Chicago clergyman,  has   completed   organization   plans  for the, first all-American army to be  formed   in   England to'fight under .  the Stars and Stripes in  France.   If  congress will accept this  means  of  speedily   placing   the   flag in  the  trenches   the   force will be constituted as a unit of the United  States  army, with a strength-of ten   thousand seasoned American officers and  men from the British  front.    It   is  hoped to add to the strength at least  two thousand;more from the American   civilian   population   of Great  Britain and France,  ���������y. Col. Bullock has enlisted Consul-  General Skinner, of Lpndon,in support of his plan.  The consul-general  forwarded the suggestion to  Washington, and   Buliock,    through  his-  acquaintance with Senator Smith of  Michigan and former Representative  Garduer of & assachusetts, hopes to  receive the  necessary  authorization  from congress.  The ten thousand men will not be  sent to France'in'a body. It is intended to take over only a small sector of the line manned by one battalion of Americans, about one'thou  sand men. The remaining troops  will be held in England as a reserve  force to be drawn upon for rein  forcements when casualties are suffered. As casualties average about  50 per cent of a fighting force for  every forty-five days of aggressive  fighting, there will be a reserve of  almost five thousand men when the  American million is. ready to sail  for Europe.  Officers are plentiful among the  American soldiers in Europe. The  names already registered with Col.  Bullock include officers from eigh- ���������  teen states, the Philippines and  Alaska. Privates in one Canadian  battalion alone came from forty-  three states, Alaska, Porto Rico, the  Philippines and Cuba. The new  force will be especially well off for  machine gun officers and crews and  bombers.  The allied armies have drawn a  total of 30,000 Americans since th������  war began. The extent of their  casualties can be estimated from tbe  conservative optimism of Col. Bullock. He asserts that every "ranker" now fighting under a foreign  flag is impatient to get into American khaki, yet his highest estimnt  of the number obtainable is 10,000  officers and men. However, tbe  missing 20,000 are not necessarily  killed. Many have been* discharged  through wounds and others have  been captured.

(T  FRIDAY, JUNE 8, 1917  Today's dispatches from Ottawa seem to  indicate that an early general election is unavoidable. It is a pity that a strong "win-  the-war" coalition cabinet could not have  been formed. It would have been better for  the honor and dignity of the nation. During  the present crisis party politics at the federal  -capital and^spolitical strife throughout the  country are out of place.  France and Germany have each presented  statues to.the United States. France gave her  tflie statue of Liberty lighting with .her torch  the sea path to the land. of the free. Germany gave her Frederick the Great, to stand  before the War College in Washington.

There will be no coalition, we  are further informed, and the prospect is for  an early general election. If the the election  is brought on, and the issue is conscription,  party lines will be badly shattered at.the polls,  and after the battle of ballots the anti-con-  sc-riptionists will hardly known  struck them.  The conscription bill will be brought down  Monday and will be put through the house as  quickly as possible. The government expects  to receive the support of pro-conscription  Liberals, such as Dr. Michael Clark and  . Hugh Guthrie.  Never try to save yourself any trouble. You  will get enough without hoarding it.  Mining conditions appear to be active around  Paulson this spring. It is said a wagon ��������� road  is needed to the camp. It would not require  a very large expenditure of money to complete  the road.to that point, and the outlay might  act as an incentive to 'stimulate mining and  prospecting in the district,.which is tributary  to this city.

They have  welcomed his colleaguos, M.Viviani,  and the British commissioner, Mr.  Balfour, with generous sympathy  and profound admiration, but to  Gen. Joffre they gave not only enthusiasm but the more precious  tribute of affection and reverence. It  was Gen. Joffre that millions of  people lined the streets of cities to  see. It was to gaze at Gen, Joffre  that thousands of fathers lifted up  their little boys.  There was sound reason  for   the  tribute.    The Battle of  the Marne  was one of the  decisive   battles   of!  the world; never in any battle that!  history records records was there a j  greater issue at stake.   It was  there  that sutocracy, the   foe oi   civiliza-:  tion, learned that it was not to con  quer the world. There democracy  wasosaved: and it was saved chiefly  through the skill, the. genius and  the steadfastness of Gen. Joffre  Ever since those days in September,  1914, he has been for the American  people the hero of the war.  It was, however, more than his  soldierly qualities that captivated  American hearts. The endearing  trait that won him the nickname  "Papa" Joffre showed in his serene  and kindly face. Those wbo saw  him <k>uld better than before appreciate, a touching anecdote, perhaps  not too well known, that illustrates  his tenderness of heart. He had  called for volunteers to perform an  important but desperately hazardous service. Out of a number of  young soldiers who presented themselves he selected three. He gave  them their instructions. They saluted and turned to go., "Mes en-  fants!" call the general with a note  of appeal in his .voice, and the  young men turned back. "Since  when   do   children  go upon a long  journey without kissing their father  good-by?" And tbe general, with  tears in his eyes, kissed each one  upon the cheek.  Two incidents in Gen. Joffre's career might be commended to the  thoughtful study of Americans in  high position. He won the Battle  of the Marne only because in the  first days of tbe war he. relieved  some twenty generals���������most of them  his pergonal friends���������of their comr  mand. He did not permit personal  friendship or political influence' to  weigh in the balance against incompetence. And he himself, when it  came ' time to relinquish the  supreme command in the field, gave  way cheerfully to a younger man,  and was content to serve his country  in a post of less authority than that  which he had held.

Two"  morals adorn the tale. .One, that such a  possibility is- open to every shopkeeper;  two, that with- the telephone in the house  one never needs to travel, even as far as  the corner store.

BRITISH COLUMBIA  TELEPHONE COMPANY, LTD.  - ( t  True and False Economy  There is a story, at which   farmers  'smile,   of   a thrifty man who cooked  his potatoes after laying by  the  peel  for seed.    The peel, he reasoned, con  tained the eyes, or buds. Plants ought  to spring from them and bear potatoes  in their burn.    So they did,   and  the  potatoes reached the size of   walnuts.  Somo newspapers have   recommended  a similar practice this year, when seed  is expensive and everyone is making a  gvrdei;arid tis true that with  skillful   cutting, abundant  fertilizer and  expert cultivation a very   small, part  of the potato, if it contain a bud, can  be   made   productive.    But   any  at-  timpt to cheat natuie is Bound"to'fail.  Nowhere  is   the   proverb, "Nothing  spend, nothing have," better illustra  ted    than   on   a   farm.    The sprout  should have a decent amount of nourishment from the substance of the parent seed   if   it is to make a vigorous  growth.  .".'.The principle thus illustrated has a  wide application.   Lime, for example,  is known to have little worth strictly  as a plant food.   So some farmers and  gardeners count it a waste of time to  bother with it.    They will feed   their  * crops   with   true  fertilizer  and save  both   eime   and   money.     But a soil  from which the lime has   leached   out  and .which has become sour is   like   a  .   man with impaired digestion.   ;It  can  not assimilate   the plant food spread  upon it in such a way as   to   become  produclive.    The   lime   corrects   the  acidity by   a  chemical   process; so, in  breaking up a fallow field, in planting,  -ground so repeatedly   cultivated   that  rain    has   washed out   its lime, and  particularly- in   making a  lawn,"few  things pay better than a careful   examination into the acidity of the soil.  Wherever moss and sorrel  grow  lime  is likely to be   needed; and if a   test  with litmus paper shows   considerable  ingly insignificant pests that you will  not easily forget.  Pruning is so generally  recognized  to be good economy that  little   need  be said about it;.but to thin outgrowing  plants   properly   requires   more  resolution than the   average amateur  possesses.    It seems a sinful waste to  pull up half your   onions ur   to  pick  young fruit when it has set  so  thick  and markets are so bare..   But  it   is  good practice if the vegetables are too  close   to   permit   normal   growth or  there is more fruit than the tree   can  ripen without overstrain.    This year,  in particular, many young  gardeners  who look with .delight upon the .start  of their beets, onions and turnips will  be disappointed at harvest to discover  how small and immature their vegeta  bles seem..   The   trouble ..will be that  they   have, crowded   and   smothered  one   another.    Thinning   seems  like  waste, but it is real economy;  and   in  such processes  continued   year   after  year the worker in the   earth   learns  how just a judge between   true and  false our Mother Nature is.  :THE NEWSPAPERS  AND/THEWAR  ; The following from' the Philadel  phia Ledger applieB with as much"  pertinency to the Canadian as to the  American newspapers:  "Every day hundreds of news  papers devote columns of news  matter and editorial comment to the  national needs and national welfare  work. When a newspaper gives  away its space it gives away some  thing which costs it real money. It  is giving today a much greater percentage of its energy aud resources  than any other industry or business  in America. Without publicity  Secretary McAdoo would find the  liberty loan a dismal failure.  "At this juncture in the nation's  life no other single, agency in our  republic is more solidly united for  its welfare than the newspapers. No  other agency compares,.with it in  the mighty task of solidifying, public sentiment behind the president  and the flag.

"1 didn't cry then;  I thought  you  were ont," said Clarence.  Yankee Notions  New York's army of street fakirs  has seized upon the  patriotic spirit  and capitalized it.

Trees get  on   and  A Sad Awakening  The foreman of a construction gang  was walking along his section of the  railway one day when he.came upon a  laborer fast asleep in the shade of a  fence.
