A.  - S: Atwood, John McKie, R: W.  Hughps, George Manson and H. L.  Mackenzie ' -  . ��������� ���������  In view of the fact tha"t it\was a  "win the.war" convention, and the  Liberals not being represented,- it  was thought advisable not to  make  r a formal nomination; but  a- resolu  tion-   was    unanimously     adopted  , pledging the support of the conven  'tion to Hon. Martin  Burrell, minis:  ter of. mines,"as.member for Yale.   ���������  A meeting of the  Liberal   party  of the district waB held  in"~Pentlc-  . ton on tbe same evening. As no  delegates "were sent from-this city,  what action'the convention'.,took  is  ." largely conjecture. It is understood,  however, that it'was '/decided, that,  for the present at least, a candidate  will not be placed in the (ield. A  statement, it is said, will- be issued  to tbe press later."-    ������  MANY MILES OF  1     DIAMOND DRILLING  The   production   of  the Phoenix  mines   during    the   Granby   company's  fiscal   year  ended   June 30  averaged 12 52 pounds copper,0.177.  ounce silver and 0.027   ounce .gold  per ton.    Development averaged 16  cents per ton and cost 12.2 cents per  foot. Diamond drilling amounted to  6502 feet, making the total diamond  drilling done   in   connection    with  this property L19,1 ���������"J2 feet. The cos  per ton of ore on cars  was   $1,175.  The wage bonus amounted to  15.7  cants per ton;  increase   in   cost of  supplies  over   pre-war   prices 11.2  cenis per ton; workmen's compensation assessment, 1.5 cents  per   ton;  making  an   increased cost of  28.4  cents   per   ton over pre-war prices,  but   this   item  was reduced by 9.7  cents   decrecse   in   railway   freight  resulting from the  opening   of   the  Kettle Valley railway.  The Phoenix  mines  have   produced   12,825,426  tons of ore, leaving  reserves  at   3,-  274,994 tons, estimated .to  produce  17 pounds copper and  75 cents in  gold and silver per ton.   Production  for   year   was 672,292 tons of ore.  The company's staff and mine force  at Phoenix has contributed   to   the  the  war   forty five   men and $42,-  198 35 in money, of which   75   per  cent went to the Canadian  Patriotic  fund and most of tbe balance to the  Red Cross fund.   The contributions  during   the   past year amouted to  ������19,440.07. Of the company's   em  2.0M per cent. Cost of mining was  8,1.235 per ton; underground development' $23.26 per foofj or 14 2  cents per ton; diamond drilling,  S2 36 per foot; or 3 5 cents per ton;  wage increase, 14 8 cents per ton;  increase in cost of supplies, 30 per  cent, or 17 5 cents per ton. Two'  new ore bodies are added-to the re-  serves/increaaing tbeseby 1,954,000  tons, of which 1,511,-000'tons average 2.96 per cent copper, and the  balance 1.99 per cent copper. The  reserves of this <mine are -placed at  9,882,133,-tons, of .high grade/and  8,257,500 tons of .low grade ore.mak-  ing a total of 18,139,693 tons. ��������� The  Column "group has been purchased  and added to the "Hidden Creek  group. No. work'was'done on the  Bonanza mine during the year.  - The operations at''the' campany's  Alaska mine at Hadleysfjipped 20,-  115 tons of ore, averaging 1.46 per  cent of copper and 36"eents in gold  ahd'silver,' but is now shut down.  The ore is mainly valuable as a'flux  on account of ^ the large excess of  iron, but is not at present required  at Anyox, and will only be" used  when required for fluxing purposes.  Plans Said to Have Been Perfected for Crossing At-,  lantic inrAirplanes  AMERICAN ARMY  NOW IN TRENCHES  With the "American Army 1%necjis|ity  France, Oct. 30.���������Under. JSrrible  weather conditions the. American  army is exchanging blow fS^blow  with the Bosches". Tbe^figh'tihg front  is a vast stretch of rivulets, mud  and bogs, with rain and snow fall  ing. _ Despite the storm, the Sammies" are shelling the enemy emplacements. The infantry stands  knee deep in almost freezing  water.  The Americans' morale is. excellent. Like the Canadians, the offi*  cers have difficulty in preventing  the men charging the enemy without orders: The Sammies are anxious to fight. An American lieutenant in the signal corps, working in  a communicating trench, was slightly wounded. He is the Orst Ameri  can hit in action.  Chairman Hurley, of the United  States shipping board, has announced that the country's yards  are producing ships at the rate of  seven and a half million .tons annually, exceeding the allies'.request  for six million tons. Mr. Hurley has  asked all the steel plants to operate  three shifts.  It is reported from Washington  that gigantic supplies of money,  food and munitions will be rushed  to Italy. The United States has decided to extend Italy's credit to  $230,000,000 at once. Grain and coal  are already enroute from"the United  States to Italy, and tbe French and  British are rushing guns and reinforcements.  Washington, Oct. 31.���������Giant bat  deplanes will soon make their first  trial'flight'across the ' Atlantic.and  there is little doubt in the minds of  aerial authorities that traus Atlantic  flights are to be a usual feature of  the war, according to men in Washington who ought to know.  It had been planned that the  great Italian Caproni triplane would  make the first trip, but lha excellent records of the new Liberty motor, declared by Secretary Baker to  be the greatest single achievement  of the war, has recommended its use  in this great "undertaking.  Every plan to make tbe trial a  complete , sbccess has been made.  The hydro-airplane type of giant  flierto-be used will be able to des-  -c'etodvto the water's surface in case of  tes have   been   proposed,  from New York   to   Eng-  the  other trom the most  point of  tbe  Newfoundland  movement���������was   notified   that  the,  sky   over   New   York   was full of  radio   code   messages,   presumably  sent by German agents.  "In considering what could_ be  done . to assist the government in  finding the source from which these  radio code messages were sent, it  was-found that tbe allies were using  special radio direction finders.which  were installed on board ships and  permitted the ships to find the direction from which radio messages  were sent at sea'.  "Investigation proved that radio  direction finders were being used  and that the nature of these instru  ments permitted applying them for  aerial navigation purposes.  "With the development that has  taken place in perfecting radio direction finders, it would be possible  to equip a trans Atlantic flyer with  such a device, which should always  point to the direction of a sending  station, so that if any station was  established at the Azores the aviator would ^have no trouble in finding the Azores, and all possibility,  of losing himself would be precluded, "  '."We have been assured that an  instrument can be obtained weighing less than one hundred pounds  and having a radius of nearly 1500  miles. For a flight across the Atlantic this instrument would be tuned  wiih the sending station at the  Azores and then with the instru  meut. ou the Irish coast, and the  "airplane crew would fly first to the  Azores, thence to Portugal and then  to England."  ELECTION DM IS  Nomination Day, Nov.  19.  New Parliament to Meet  -y    February 28  On account of the unexpired por  tion of the license year the prjvin  cial government had to pay to former  licensed premises in the unorganized  districts of the province with tjie  advent of prohibition a sum of $10,-  911.50. This is apportioned as follows: Hotel licenses, $6,836.50;  wholesale, licenses, $2250: club  licenses, $900; steamship licenses,  $835, and railway licenses, $100.  A total of 230 licenses are  affected.  The Canada Copper company has  300 men working at Copper mountain. The main adit tunnel, 9x11  feet in the clear.is being driven at the  rate of 21 feet a day. Plans are being made for the big mill by the  same company that built the Kellog  smelter.

The  Utter route is regarded as the   most  practicable.  Equipped with engines developing a speed of 80 and 90 miles an  hour, and capable of carrying several tons of fuel and freight, these  great battleplanes may be able to ily  from the United States to England  within twenty four hours. Success  in the project will bring the development of a fleet of giant planes for  the transportation of freight.  ' Experts regard the transatlantic  planes as the solution of the transportation problems that the German  submarine war has produced.  Commenting on these great aerial  voyages in a recent article in Flying,  Alan K. Hawley, president of the  Aero Club of America, said:  "Tne Atlantic is to be crossed in  the air within a few mouths, and  the difficult problem of delivering to  Europe the airplanes needed for  striking Germany through the air  will be solved thereby. And with the  flight will start the. era of-commer  cial aerial transportation. All the  factors necessary for crossing the  Atlantic by airplane are available.  There only remains to try the first  flight.  "The most difficult problem in the  cross Atlantic flight has always been  considered., the problem of finding  one's way during the flight. The  distance between Newfoundland and  the Azores is less than 1200 miles,  and those who have given thorough  consideration to the subject have  bad little doubt for the last  seven years that an airplane could  be built to cover the distance. But  we appreciated the danger of the  pilot losing his way, drifting from  his course and missing   the   Azores.  ''The   practical   solution   of  the  problem was found by accident   in ;  1914.   Soon after the declaration  of \ lu0PH iU1(J Skeena  districts, where it conditions at the mine.

This applies to  all constituencies except Yukon territory. In the Yukon nomination  day will be December 31 and polling day four weeks later, Monday,  January 28. All writs are returnable  on February 27, 1918." Parliament  is summoned to meet on the day  following. The election will be without .a parallel in the history of  Canada.  The granting of the franchise to  soldiers arid sailors and their female  relatives at home has entailed the  creation of entirely new machinery.  Military and naval polls will have-  to be held in France, Belgium, the  United Kingdom, tbe. West Indies,  Canada and on .the high seas in  Europe and North America. In  every polling subdivision in the Dominion an enumerator will have,to  set to work revising'" the electoral  districts.  VERY PROFITABLE  -    INVESTMENT  ' A newly acqnired property by  the Granby company is the It mine  at Kassan Bay, Prince of Wales  lV.and, which produced 14,881 tons  of ore averaging 4.09 per cent copper and $1.68 per ton in gold and  silver during its fiscal year ended  June 30. The company paid 850,000  for this property, and it has already  not only earned its cost, but made a  profit in addition of $133,726.87.  Tbe ore is also valuable as a flux  owing to the percentage of lime it  carries.  In the Midas mine, at Valdez,  are 44,487 tons of ore blocked out;  21,019 tons were shipped for the  year, averaging 4.12 per cent copper  and $1.55 in gold and silver. A  great deal of milling ore has been  concentrated, and the advisability  of installing a .mill has been suggested.  CUSTOMS RECEIPTS  R. R.

The following resolucion, adopted  by the Liberal   convention at Penticton on Wednesday night, appear*  .to indicate that election in Yale this j  year will be by acclamation:  "Whereas, The position taken by  the executive of  the Yale   District  Liberal association ' in  recommending to the two great political parties  iu this district, that at this time   of  empire crisis    t  was desirable that  an-effort be- made' to   hold 'simultaneous conventions, with a vie^v to  selecting if possible a  candidate acceptable   to   the  great mass of the  people -pledged   to support   union  govornmeht,   conscription  of   man  power and wealth, and the elimination of future profiteering,   and  the  organization   of   the  country's   resources for the supreme ta������k of winning   the   war,   "has   received   the  unanimous endorsement of the Liberal   party   of   the Yale district in  convention assembled; therefore be it  ���������'Resolved, That the convention,  having-  in   view   the   necessity  of  every efforCof the people being concentrated in  establishing  unity   of  purpose and the elimination of party lines at this time, urge upon   the  coalition government the necessity  and obligation of  carrying out  the  above principles  advocated   by the  Liberal   party,   arid     iafrain   from,  nominating a candidate  to   contest  the riding against the cabinet representative of the union   government,  in the hope that a progressive policy,  of   adequate  support to our  brave  "men'uovv fighting overseas   for   the  ' great   principles   of -democracy, for  which we have  ever stood,  will be  put into earliest and fullest possible  effect."  hot sermon against ��������� some special kind  of sin, this man gets enthusiastic and  ���������goes around, to the Vestry to tell the-  preacher what a fine sermon it was.  Then he goes home and repeats it to  his brother, and they talk over the  points and the people the sermon hit  the hardest. But this particular man  never-sees when tho sermon hits him.  T*his month the biggest public cam-  "paigu ever put on in Canada will be  opened to get subscriptions ' for the  fourth Canadian war loan, the Vic  tofy loan. The thing people in this  district must brar in mind is: that the  appeals are'dirccted to each and every  one of them. It is not merely the well-  off men and swo.men who -are being  asked to invest. It is everybody. The  little sermon's which- will be '-preach���������  ed"|in the advertising should not he  taken as hints to the well to do people only. Every man and' woman  should watch these advertisements  and start now to gather up the neces-  sory .money to buy either a fifty or a  hundred or a five hundred or a thou-  and dollar bond. In the United States  there were about four subscribers, to  the first American loan out of every  100 persons. They only, received 3������  per cent. ��������� In Canada for the last war  loan there were., about 41,000 subscribers, ��������� or say four in every 700.  Yet in Canada the interest was umch  higher���������on the Victory bonds they  will pvobably be issued to yield about  5������" percent. The first thine anyone  should do, in our opinion, is to get  rid of the idea that there is any sacrifice involved in investing in this loan.  It is true that the patriotic spirit is  appeeled to, and it is equally true  that agreat and geneorous response is  expected on that ground. Bufc the new j  own one of. these new bonds  only   thai1, but should help   to  war loan is a. straightaway ' business  proposition; safe, profitable, and convenient. Every man-and every woman  with as much as $50 to spare= should  and not  show  others , the worth of these bonds by  recommending them everywhere. The  readers of this paper are among the  most' thrifty, prosperous and public  spirited in'the Dominion. When the  .subscriptions to the Victory loan are  added up from tho various districts  and subdistricts we expect them to  show that this part of the great ' Dominion has.beon true to its traditions,  and just to its opportunities,  t  *s  We had almost forgotten to mention that this is The Sun's seventeenth birthday.

They  are foods especially suited to the requirements for   the tjmen   who   are  fighting and those doing heavy physical labor. The   scarcity of fodder  and the greater call  for meat have  compelled   the   allies since the beginning of   the  war  to   kill   more  than 33,000,000 head of their stock  animals.    Thus   the source of4heir  meat is decreasing.    At.Jhe same  time the heeds of the soldiers   and  war workers have increased the necessary meat consumption.   Imports  of beef and bacon into Great Britain  "from Sweden,   Denmark and   Holland   have  been  reduced to a very  smali amount,   whereas   all   three  countries   formerly  supplied   large  quantities. The United Kingdom is  thrown more   than  ever upon   the  North American continent for these  commodities.    Moreover,   the    entrance of the United States into   the  war   has   greatly   increased the requirements of both beef and  bacon  for  the   United  States army.   The  soldiers need beef and  bacon,  and  they can only   be supplied   if   the  civilian population of  Canada   and  the   United  will reduce their consumption of these foods.    A saving  of an ounce of meat per person  per  day, and   increased  production  of  beef and bacon  on  this   continent,  would go a long way towards meeting the armies' requirements.   ���������  r  ONDS are issued payable in ten or twenty years, as the case may be.  ��������� It means that repayment of the money will be spread oyer ten or twenty  years instead of being raised by taxation to meet current, ^dit^es-  To raise by taxation all the money as fast as it.is needed to carry on  Canada's share in winning the war, would be an unbearable burden upon  thC Ttwould mean that more than a Million dollars a. day would have to be  raised right now.

"--'--  * * *  And when you buy Canada's Victory  Bonds you make a first-class business investment in a security that is absolutely  safe, likely to enhance in value after the  war, and bearing a good rate of interest.  You help the country by keeping open  the British market for Canadian products  and this helps the general welfare in which  you share.  ��������� * * "\  And again, every Canadian who buys  a Victory Bond becomes a financial partner  or backer' of Canada in the war.  When.you buy a Canada Victory Bond  you' give  a  personal pledge that you are  going to help to win the war.

Every purchase of Canada's Victory  Bonds is a blow for freedom against the  tyranny of German Kultur.  Every bond sold is a new guarantee  that Canada is in the war to the finish,  until victory is with the Allies and the  world has been made safe to live in.

These two unitsj both highly dis  tinguished for active service, left for  overseas together on the Saxon ia on  May 20, 1915. They went tnrough  their iraining together and they  went into the trenches at the same  time. When the great advance to  the attack came at Courcelette, al  -most as one unit there sprang from  the allied trenches this heroic Quebec battalion and their firnj friends  fro[n.,Nuva"kScotia.  It is regarded here as a good omen  of future harmonious relations between the various'sections of.-Cana  da that these close friendships have  been formed so often between Canadian corps from widely separated  parts of the Dominion.  At the same time the regular departments will be maintained inall their  profusion and variety.'

This is almost self-evident for the following reasons:  it is admitted that, between the ages of 20 and 34, the average man is at the height of his  physical strength and is most adaptable to the change of conditions from civilian life;  the military service of unmarried men and widov/ers without children would occasion less  distress than that of most others, since they are largely without dependents.    Also, it would  entail less financial burden for Canada, through separation allowances, etc.  Authorities estimate that, after all proper exemptions have been allowed, Canada should be able to  produce from the first class 100,000 men fit for service, so the drain upon the man power of the country  will not be severe.  Members of Class One will be well advised to present themselves for examination immediately to  the Medical Board in their district. Upon examination as to their physical fitne6S, they will be placed in one  of the following categories:  Category A���������if fit for service in overseas fighting units.  Category B���������if fit for service overseas hi Army Medical Corps, Forestry Battalion, etc  Calagory C���������if fit for^ervice in Canada only.  Category E���������if unfit for military service of any nature.  If not placed in Category ^, the applicant will know that he is not liable for immediate service, but will  go to the Post Office and send in a claim for exemption with his Medical Certificate attached, when he will receive in due course a certificate of exemption until those in his medical category are summoned for service.  Where a man, who is placed in category A, feels that exemption should be allowed, an application  form can be secured from the postmaster.   This form, when filled in, will be forwarded by the postmaster  to thc registrar of the dialed, and the applicant will be informed by mail as to the time and^place for the  consideration of his application by the Exemption Board. ~  Issued by The Military Service Council.  *f������S8&3  asHsassssssrassK  ���������MMWMUMIIIMH1IMIBIUW1IWMMIJH]  m3MmmSmtamSmhSSSinS.sVSSm  ssmsn ,f  ���������\;  THE   SUN.
