On Sunbay niorriing'last a shooting  scrap occured on the Indian Reserve,  Main Street, when Dornonic Jack was  shot in the shoulder by his son, Basil  .Tack, an Indian youth of about 21  -years of age.  The shooting -which was done with  a .44 Colts revolver, is supposedly the  culmination ot a heavy drinking bout.  -Mrs. Jack who was in their company  at the time-of the assult, ran for  assistance to the house of Mr. Wyles  on Main Street, anel he immediately  proceeded to the scene of action and  found the wounded Indian lying on  the ground covered with blood.

These rocks are  probably Oligocene in age and may be  correlated with the rocks of the interior Teriary lake basins of British  Columbia.  ORE    DEPOSITS  Considerable prospecting and ele-  velopment have been elone within the  last fifteen years on the lode desposits  of Kruger mountain on both sides of  the International Boundary, but more  especially on the United States side.  A detailed description of the deposits  on the south side of the line is given  by J. B. Umpleby in Bulletin No. 5,  Part 11, of the Washington Geological  Survey. These deposits are of two  kinds, namely, disseminated copper-  deposits, anil vein deposits carrying  gold as the principal valuable metal.  The latter are the more important and  are responsible for the whole lode  metal production of the district.  The ore deposits on the Canadian  side are mainly of the first type mentioned, narhely, disseminted eleposits  carrying copper with some gold.  These are situated in close proximity  to the granodiorite anel are probably  genetically connected with it.  The examination of these eleposits  was confined to a limited area covereel  by a group of claims owned by the  Gold Dust Mining Comany anil the  Dividend-Lakeview Mining Comany.  Continued on Pokc Two  At the time of* going to press, Europe faces the gravest situation since the dttys of Napoleon. Four Powers of the first  magnitude are in the throes of conflict. Counsels of peace are  cast to the winds; the Hague Treaty has been openly disregarded by its signatoriesa-nd the neutrality of Belgium lias been violated for the first time since 1839.  The events of the past week in the Balkans have been overshadowed by the greater struggle in the central Europe. The  most meagre reports indicate the war has developed into a  series of raids ��������� and represals between Russia, Germany and  Fx*ance on land and into a triangular naval struggle in the  North Sea between the German navy and the fleets of Ensr-  land arid France.- All Europe is vertually under martial law.  Mobilization and concentration of troops are general.  SUMMARY   OF".

In England the prices fit* provisions'  have doubled.     President Wilson has '  offered his good offices to belligerents I  August 6th  Germany has formally declared war  against Belgium intimating  that German troops  must pass  through  Belgium territory if they have   to  h'_;ht  their way.    German    airships    hover-  over Brussels.  French troops have joined Belgium.  The Belgiuns have annihilated two  German regiments and two platoons  of German cavalry on the frontier.  United States will mobilize available forces immediately.  21,000 Canadian troops are massed  at Quebec. King George has called  for volunters for the army.  Twenty-one alleged spies have been;  arrested at Portsmouth.  August 3rd  The Germans invaded French territory without first declaring war,  thereby violating the Hague Treaty  to which both parties are signatories!  An engagenientbetween the Russian  anel German fleets in the Baltic re-  sulteei -i i j^-the*--"deiea't'-Vbi'-'-Zhe Russians  who took refuge in' the Giilf of Finland.  Germany invaded Belgium upon refusal of the later to allow the free  passage of German -troops through  Belgium territory. Sir Edward Grey  announced that England woulel protect French anel Belgiun interests in  the North Sea.  August 4th  Great Britain mobilizes her troops  but does not declare herself belligerent. Britain reassures France of her  protection and orders Germany out  of Belgium. This a virtual declaration  of war. Later Britain declares war  against Germany.  War now officially exists between  Austria and Germany on one side and  Russia, Servia anel Montenegro on the  other.  Lord Kitchener is made War Lord.  A comparison of the war strength  of Austria, Germany, Italy, Russia,  France, Servia and Gritain Britain,  the nations which are involved in the.  latest European muddle, shows that  Russia's war strength on the land is  -he-greatest. That country.has 5,500,-  000 men its army and as many more  men available, for duty but unorganized.  Germany is next in strength with  an army of 5,200,000 and only 1,000,000  additional available in case of need.  Then come France with 4,000,000*  Austria with 2,000,000; Italy with  1,200,000; Great Britain with 73',000,  and Servia with 240,000.  However, the Great Britiin navy  easily outclasses all the others, both in  number of men and in vessels. The  personnel of the British navy is almost  twice that of Germany, which is second. France and Russia trail Germany,  closely followed by Italy anel Austria  Hungary. Of course Servia has no  navv.

Fraser-.  The deceased was well known in this  locality, having resided at intervals  during the past ten years.  Mr. McKinnon was a native of Nova  Scotia, anel prior to his coming west  resieleel in the Maritime Province'-,  where he bnre arms during tho Fenian  Raids.  The funeral which took place Sunday was marked by very a large attendance and beautiful floral tributes,  testifying the esteem in which the  deceased was held.  Services at the house anel grave  were conducted by Rev. Father  Chionel of Grand Forks. The pall  bearers were Dan McKinnon, Con  McKinnon, Jack Fraser; J. McDougall,  R. McDougall and Geo. Gilbert.  The deceased is survived by wife and  three children, Dan, Con and Mrs. J.  Fraser, all of Hedley.  WIRELESS AND MINING  The annual report of the minister  of mines just published shows ii  total mineral production for 1913 of  $30,296,308, the second highest in  the history of the* province, 1912  having been a recoiel year with $33,-  440,800.  Juelgeel by districts anel divisions  there are some interesting increases  in the output of mineral products.  East Ivootenay for 1913 shows  $5,947,935, as compared - with $5,-  723,000 in 1912; West Kootenay,-19, -  12, $G,165,25.->, 1913 $7,092,107.  ��������� In the Ainswoi-th mining division  the production was $627,150 for  1913, as against $371,760 in 1912.  Slocan and Slocan City showed $2,-  258,309 compared with $1,951,315  in 1912.  Nelson's figures were $863,963 for  1913/ against $581,700 in 1912,  while Trail creek also showed an increase, its figures being; 1913, $3,-  716,771; 1912, $3,214,751.  Production  in    the Boundary  tih?t showed a   falling   off,   the  ores  being   $7,925,336   for   1913,  716,406 for 1912.  Production figures of lode ruines  for the year were: Gold, $5,627,490;  silver. $1,96S,609; lead, $5,175,832;  copper, $7,094,480; and zinc, $324,-  ���������421.   ���������  Coal to the value .of $7,481,190  was produced during the year and  coke valued at $1,716,270.  dis-  fig-  $8,~  CREDITORS   NOTICE  The business of Tuck, Chinese res-  tauranter, having sold out, creditors of  the proprietor are hereby notified to  raeetin the B.C.

The miracle of wireless  telegraphy  - which had already conquerecl the air  and water-, now penetrates the bow:els  of the earth.   German scientists by this  all prevailing medium   have not only  located subterranean spring   and  ore  deposits, but ascertained their elepths.  Moreover,  miners  working  1000 feet  below the surface have received  wire-  loss messages   from   a point a   mile  and a half away on  the same level.  There is is an  evident future,  of immense value to  the mining  industry  in this eliscovery,   for mineral   wealth  .discoverable   by     no     other    means  will be revealed  to  man.    And with  wireless   equipment    in   mine    pits,  communication   with  entombeel  miners will be possible  in case of disaster  anel the work of rescue  made easier,  besides cheering  the prisoners   with  messages   from   home   and   friends.  The discoverery means not a little to  British Columbia where  only a  tithe  of its hidden  treasures have yet been  revealed.���������Province.  METEOROLOGICAL.

But the great majority' are  in every way competent and effective.  The Irish Nationalist army, of more  recent oi igin, is drawn from four provinces insteael of one,, anel is already  numerically larger than the Ulster  l'nice. These veiluuiccrs have but recently begun training, anel many of the  units have had no drill worth mentioning, but il is said that many thousands  of them have served in the regular  army, and Mr.. .1. H. Green is enthusiastic in her praise of their quality. It  is admitted that the Ulster example  caused them to organi/.:! and we may-  expect that dining the Home Rule  armistice they would not allow the  Covenanters to excel them iu Imperial  patriotism, devotion and courage. So  it may ivollbc thatil'agrcat war comes  Riilain may congratulate lu*i-M-*lf over  tin- pnlitie.-il accicle'iM whii-h causeil  more than 200.000 Irish volunteers to  undergo through military training at  an opportune time.  THE-;STRIKE-AVERTED  Yesterday .the. . travelling, public  drew a. long breath of relief anil for  the first time iu - three weeks, gave its  undivided attention to   the  war news.  In the crisis the country at large  can baldly-be so. thankful for the  spirit of compromise which enabled  the representatives of both parties to  avert the impending.trouble.  Had the tinffic been tied up for even  a short period,,it would have been the  last calamity which the business  world could suffer. Financial strin  gency. war and iniliifeient crops in  the Middle West' all point toward a  hard winter but a strike of such magnitude as the one threatened would  have meant not '-bad business" merely but business paialysis.  WHAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN  If the Canadian aid bill, introduced in 1912, had become law three of  the strongest battleship-, that science  ci'iili! device or money could bvy. paid  for b> the people of Canada, would at  this lime have been launched and lying  in some Biilisb elock nearly really fen-  sea. Among the Dieaeluoughts gathered at Spitbead and reviewed by the  King a few elays ago, and now doubtless part of the fleet which put out to  sea under sealed orders when the  'European' crisis was imminent, was  Hi.s Majesty's New Zealand ship New  Zealand, a battle cruiser of 28-knot  -speed, of 1S.S00 tons displacement,  with engines of 4.4,000 horse-power,  and a primary armament of eigb<S  12-ineb guns. This ship was completed in .1912 and is part of the Imperial  navy. Australia hael a similar ship  built in. Great Britain at the same  time. The battle cruiser Australia is a  part of the Australian fleet unit. If  Great Brit lin is now compelled to fight  this ship woulel elo better- service to the  Empire, and oonsecjuently to Australia,  on the European coast than in -the  -Southern Seas.  ��������� If Great Britain should he engaged  : this month in a life and death struggle  the contest will not be in the Pacific  or the South' Seas, but on the continent  of Europe and in the neighboring  waters. Shoulel .Canada, Australia,  New Zealand and South Africa take  part they will send their- soldiers to  ���������Europe. Canada cannot now contribute battleseips for this war. But if  Canadian help is needed it will be  freely olfereel. anel no man who may  raise the eprestion that Canadians  shoulel refuse to concern themselves  in the fate of the Mother Country  need expect a favor-able hearing.

Dalton, Manager  GEOLODICAL SURVEY WORK  THE IRISH VOLUNTEERS  The suspension of Home Rule legislation will continue while the European crisis remains. If Britain shoulel  be forceel into war the Irish epies-  tion will remain unsettleel until the  struggle is over. The Ulster Volunteers, who have been preparing for another conflict, are not likely to allow  their military training to go to waste.  They have sworn to maintain Imperial  rule, in Ulster, anel it will probably be  found that they are ready to defend  the British Empire elsewhere. We risk  the preeliction that if Great Britain  shall find it necessary to call for volunteers for a European war, among the  first and most eager to respond will be  tens of thousands of Ulster Covenanters, already well trained anel equipped.  The Ulster volunteer army numbers  100,000, and must include  many who  Continued from I'affc One  These claims are situated on the eastern slope of Kruger Mountain about  one mile north of the International  Boundary line, and at an elevation  ranging from BOO to 1100 feet above  Osoyoos lake. .      . '::  The country rocks of this area include greenstones, greed, schists, and  lenses of limestone. The ore deposits  are restricted to ��������� the limestone, ��������� and  are situated at lio great distance from  the contact of the granodiorite. They  appear to be genetically connected  with the granodiorite and have all the  characteristics of deposits of contact  metamorphic .origin.  The gangue of the ores is the limestone which, however, has usually  been .-altered to a lime-silicate, rock  containing, epidote, calcite, pyroxene,  and horneblende. The metallic' minerals are pyrite and pyrrhotite, chal-  copyrite," arsenopyrite, and magnetite.  Of these, pyrite and. pyirhotite are  present in all or most of the deposits;  arsenopyrite is abundant in the Dividend workings; while, ehalcopyrite is  most plentiful in the. works of the  Lakeview. The deposits contain golel  and copper as the chief valuable  metal, and since the golel content is  higher on the Oivielend than the other-  claims it seems likely that, as in all-  jacent districts, the gold is associated  with the arsenopyrite.  As in most deposits of this origin  the ore bodies have no well defined  boundaries, but pass by a gradual  transition into low grade ore and out  into barren rock. So for us present  development has gone, workable ore  appears to be confined to the altered  limestone so that the. direction of the  ore-shoots should be controlled by the  elip anel strike of the limestone.  Faulting, however, has taken place  subsequent to the disposition of the  ore, anel in the progress of development. This fact should constantly  be borne in mind, and the direction  anel displacement of such faults carefully studied.  Oxidatiod has in general not gone  deeper than a few feet, producing a  capping of limonite anel carbonates  from which free gold can often be ob-  tained by panning. On the Lakeview  claim, however, oxidation of the ore  is apparent to a elepth of 100 feet  below the surface.  Continued, next week  tz?

Hai.i.ibukton TwKDnu_.  April Kith. 1914. 21-10  ���������PP"   Subscribe for the Gazette  jgjlpiiiPliili_3P  Let the Buyer Beware  FOli centuries the principle of "Let the Buyer Beware"  ���������-"Caveat Emptor"���������ruled the world of business.  In f_ict, it was not a principle���������but rather a lack of  principle���������yet it held sway everywhere until a decade  or two ago.  When a merchant quoted a price, he made it high  enough to stand almost unlimited whittling, and yet be  profitable-���������to him. When he spoke of quality, his fingers  were crossed, and you were not expected to believe him  ���������-���������unless you wanted to very badly.  .-, Buying was a-haggle���������unless you  Were a hardened haggler you came out  second best in every deal "Caveat  Emptor"���������it was up to you. There  was no confidence between buyer and  seller.  Business���������once an aggregation of  deals���������has "become the living embodiment of ideals^  ' Advertising has helped, because  Advertising creates confidence in the  Buyer and proves theseller's confidence  In his wares. Confidence has eliminated the haggle.  'You see business confidence is a  good deal like capital, in that it accumulates like savings. The grocery-  consumer's confidence in a town will  be on deposit chiefly with a few capable  square grocers; and. dry-goods confidence, jewelry confidence, and so forth,  are massed in the same way.  The retail merchant doesn't lock  this confidence in his safe. He deposits it in turn with the wholesaler,  who passes it on to the manufacturer.  And the manufacturer, to make the  circle complete, must give confidence  to the consumer.  The manufacturer with goods to  sell must draw upon all these reserves  of confidence. He must demonstrate  his own fairness in dealing, his integrity in maintaining quality, his  willingness to put principle before  profit.  Advertising is the means through which the manufacturer makes this demonstration to you.  Advertising has given personality to commodities, so  that you now recognize your."friends" among soap, tea,  or collars, as readily as you recognize your human acquaintances.  Advertising fathered the "money back" principle, and  has made buying a pleasure instead of a duel of wits.  f Advertising has spread the one-price policy-^���������erased  "Caveat Emptor" from the language of business, and  made buying safe to entrust to a child.  Advice regarding your advertising problems is available through  any recognized Canadian advertising agency, or through the  Secretary of the Canadian Press Association^ Room 503  ���������������������������-��������� Lumsden pldg., Toronto.   Enquiry involves no obligation on  your part���������write if interested.  Biyi^iiia^^
