Contractor Crooks is the last to finish  on this streteh.and he will .be done in  a few days. From Onemile to the  junction in Princeton with the V. V.  & E. work is being completed by,  Messrs. Glavin & Yungbluth, who are  making good progress with steam  shovel and navvies. The superstructure of the railroad bridge across the  Tulameen river s now being laid. The  whole work will last to the end of the,  winter.  H. M. Bain finished his largo grad^  ing contract on Monday last. He em:  ployed a large force of men in .tunneling .indents, and-the work is very,  satisfactorily completed to all concerned.  N. D. Folan, Geo. Henry and W. B.  McEwen, have finished their railway  work and deft Tuesday for Spokane.  Messrs. Guthrie, MeDougall & Co.  have reopened their Osprey lake head;  quarters in order to enable them to  haul the bridge, timbers from the end  of the steel to the different places  where it is required along the line.  Workmen are now engaged in filling  sags and lining up steel on the line  between Midway and Penticton.

"The German theory appears to be  that the British fleet can be beaten  only by launching against it a huge,  submarine and air attack.  "If is  reported    that the   German  * f " -  fleet again has steamed into the North  Sea.  "About 100,000 fugitives from East  Prussia have been sent to Schleswig-  Holstein and Hanover and more than  double this number of fugitive* is being cared for in the interior of Germany, a majority of them being without work or food."  -   Copper quotations   at   New   York  week reached 13   cents1'for the first  -    ' *  Hi  time since the metal, exchange was  closed on   account   of:'the  war now  raging in Europe. ;  The newspaper Independence Beige.,  \  which has been published in  London  since the occupation ofi Brussels,  has  received news from Chaileroi, Belgium  that the large blast furrjace near there  is running night and day in cremating  the corps of German  soldiers   killed  - -1'  along  the  Yser line.

'  BRITAIN DISCOUNTS  RUSSIAN NOTES  Forty    Million  Dollars  in Gold   to  Shipped to England���������Canada to  Get Some  Be  EOLL  A GAME    AT   "ROLLS  Great Britain has reached an aggree-  ment with the Russian government  whereby the former, in consideration  of a shipment of $40,000,000 from  Russia to England will arrange . for  the BanK of England to discount under guarantee of the Biitish government a further amount of $00,000,000  iii Russian treasury bills.  Discount will be on the basis of the  rate at which Great Britain has been  able to borrow for her own needs. The  $40,000,000 will be applied by Russia  to providing exchange for Anlgo-Rus-  sian trade. The $60,000,000 will be  used for the purpose of paying coupons on the national debts which are  payable in London and for financing  Russian purchases in England or  where Great Britain is unable to supply the article required and ordeis  consequently have to be placed in  Canada or the United States.  It.is reported that good pay dirt can  still be found on Cunningham creek,  near Greenwood. All ' this season  Chinamen have been working on the  upper part of Rock creek. On the  south fork James Copland has been  taking out gold all sninmer. A Rossland syndicate has leased half a mile  of ground on Rock Creek near the  *"fionse of-~jBia2es'J-ancl-"'-will'~*-put-in*  a fitiine to drain .it this fall. Next  summer the ground will be thoroughly  prospected and may create a boom in  that old camp.  Quicksilver has risen from $25 to  $100 a flask (seventy-five pounds). According to the mining world, that is  far the highest price of mercury in  modern times. This should cause a  big demand for the quantity of quicksilver recently found by the Rossland  Police who have been endeavoring to  discover the owner. The annual production Is about 4100 metric tons.  The United States and Austria-Hungary produce each about one-sixth  of this amount. Italy a little more,  and Spain nearly one third. The war  in Europe has shut off the Austria  supply and made it difficult lo transport the supply of Italy and Spain.  It has caused a greatly increased  demand for mercury, which is now  principally used in the manufacftire  of fulminate for explosive caps.  Mercury is also used extensively in  drugs and medicants, and in thermometers and instruments of precision. Formerly much was consumed  in silvering mirrors, and in thc amalgamation process of extracting gold  and silver from the ores, but mirrors  are now silvered with nitrate of sil-  eer and thecynide process has virtually  supplanted the amalgamation process  in metallurgy.���������Rossland Miner.  The Kootenay Central Railway, the  new' line iiffording connection* between the Crows Nest and the main  line of the C. P. R. at Golden, which  has been under construction for some  time was ready for operation on  Dec. 8th. Announcement to this effect  was made by Mr. J. D. Sullivan,  chief engineer of western lines.  The line is 162 miles in length and  extends from a junction point with  the Crow's Nest branch of the 0. P.  R. near Fort Steele through the Win-  deremere Valley to Golden. A CO mile  section of the line has ' been in operation from Golden to Spilimacheen  since the early summer. A large fertile agricultural district will be .served  by the new railway, which will also  afford and alternative route from the  prairie to the coast.  Ballasting i9 now. proceeding over  the Iast-60 miles of the Kootenay Central and it is expected to be completed  before the end of the year. Through  service will likely be inaugurated on  the new line early next month. No  announcement as to schedules has yet  been made in this regard.  Germany is threatening Sweden and  has been seizing Norwegian ships.  The Kaiser seems to have begun to  ride for a fall.  MUST NOT RISK   HIS LIFE  Act of   Parliament   Forbids   Monarchs  Taking- Part in Battle  In reference to the King's visit to  the British headquarters in France,"  the Loudon Chronicle says:  "It is 171 years since a British mon-  arch"left'these ~shores~for ���������Cnattlefield  on the continent ol Europe, in "which  English troops were engaged. George  II was that monarch, and in the field  of Dettigen, in Bavaria, he showed  personal bravery and skilled generalship.  "The Allies then were the English,  Hanoverians, and Austrian?, and the  enemy were the French. George II  commanded the allied armies in person, so that there is little analogy with  King George's present visit to Flanders. After Dettingen, an act of Parliament was passed providing that the  monarch of these realms should never  again risk his life in battle."  METEOROLOGICAL.

They  will leave as soon as possible.  Between August 1st and November  1st a sum of nearly $750,000 was collected in tolls from vessels using the  Panama Canal. Most of bho total  represented payments by coastwise  shipping.  Many strange requests are being  made to the Minister of Militia at Ottawa. One of the most amusing came  to hand the other day in tho form of  a letter from a country blacksmith  who asked for an opportunity to make  some "eighteen pound bullets".  A Mexican civilian was killed and a  United States soldier, wounded at  Naco, Arizona, on Friday. This  is the fourteenth soldier to be hit by  Mexican bullet.

Catenaro, a rope rider, arid Tommy  Meyers, a bell boy, were riding  up an  incline  with  a    trip of   empty cars.  When near the top without any warning a tremendous quantity of roof coal  fell upon the  two front cars,   burying  the men.    Rescue parties immediately  went to work   but recovered only  the  lifeless    bodies,    death    having    been  caused by suffocation.  It may save many disappointments  if persons sending letters to friends in  the war zone  will see  that   they are  fully prepaid.    Post cards do  not go  to France for a  cent.    They require  two   cents.      Letters    to    Salisbury  Plain do not go   free as  many  people  seem  to  think.     Letters  overweight  and unstamped going to soldiers must  be treated  as  dead letters.    The  universal postal union has found in   this  and in other wars that trying to collect  overdue  or  extra postage  on  letters  addressed  to  soldiers   in   the  field  is  like attempting  an  impossibility.    If  people would ask  at the stamp wicket  they would learn the rates  of postage  to any point where Canadian, British,  or French or any of the Allies' soldiers  may be reachable  by mail.    If people  would put a return  address on  envelopes, they would also save delay,   because in that case the letter  would be  returned at once to  the  sender  with  the note that it was not properly prepaid, instead of being sent to the dead  letter office for an indefinite period.

AFRICA  .The use by the French of her fierce  African troops in this war, and her  reliance on hei Algerian colonies for  food if the war lasts long, has heie  passed all but unnoted.  Yet there is moio than this in  Africa'.- role. She is as much the  cause, of this war as she was of that  b itween Carthage and Rome in the  older days of the world, when the  great Hannibal first led black troops  into Em-ope. ,  If Germany wins   France  stands to  lose  an empire   which for a half century she has been  silently building up  .in Africa.  We   who  live on   this  side,  of   the  . water know  little of the immense fertility of  this American ' continent and  of France's   loot  held there.      "We do  ��������� not realize, that France   is.mistress, of  nearly fifty per cent'of the continent  which   comprises one-fifth  of the hind  of,the   globe,   that  she   holds   nearly  one-half of an .area  larger  thanth-  North    American   continent   by  just  two million square miles.     Her actual  holdings  in Africa take  in a rich area  nearly twice that of continental United States.   They.reach from the banks  of the  Congo river to the Mediterranean,   and from   the Atlantic seaboard  to the fertile valley of the Nile.  : Tho-papei-s* all'over the country are  :- talking--!! bmit the expenses of this war.  The money spent  in it is a nieie bagatelle  to  the  wealth of empire which  may be won or lost by it.  England   almost went   to war  with  Fiance  sixteen years ago   because the  latter  was   too rapidly absorbing the  African    continent.     When   Captain  Marchand took the territory covering  the water sources of the Nile, with the  ultimate   possibility of diverting them  into the  Saraha dessert,   the Fashoda  incident   was   created.     England   de-  .   ma.nded   his   retreat   with   war  as an  ,  alternative.     France   withdrew   Mar-  . chand,   but  the incident  left a   bitter  feeling.     The truth   is that the   conti-  .  nent of Africa, some thirty years ago  was stolen  and divided like a big, luscious    pie   among   various   European  nations,   and  Germany came  late at  the cutting. Worse yet France having  seen   the   pi������j   first,   got   the   biggest  share.  BUY MADE IN CANADA GOODS  Every Canadien consumed, during  1923, approximately $67.54 wovth of  imported goods. Every Canadian  thereby sent sixty-seven dollars of  Canadian money to enrich some other  countiy, to keep foreign workmen  employed.     ���������  It does not seem so much, but it  makes the gigantic total of $685,53S,-  168. The value of all goods "Made in  Canada" is not much more than double  this.     Of these imports 05 per cent  The following editorial taken from  the Si. .Louis Republic is .-mother tribute to the British Empire whose government "muddles" along.  Whenever Germany and Frn nee with  their highly centralized and logically  wrought out governments, have contemplated the fabric known as the.  British Empire they have smiled  smiles of disdain.  If- ever  there   was   an   instance   of  "muddling'   along"   through    decades  and even  centuries, .taking things for  granted,  avoiding issues, extemporizing  expedients,   and  working always  for  the  object  immediately in   view,  with  scant reference  to any principle  of nut ward  eonstiteriey, it is- supplied  by   the   history  of the   making of the  Britit.li   Empire.      This, is  a-   strange  gathering    together   of   the    Crown,  Colonies,  .Dominions and  Protectorates, a  Commonwealth, Dependencies  ��������� and   India..  India  is directed  ruled  by the Crown,   Jersey, Guernsey,  and  the' Isle  of Man   are  governed under  their own laws,   but em tain  officials  are appointed by the Crown.>' Canada  and Australia are both self-g"o*yerning,  but  the  senators  in   Canada' are  appointed by the governor'-general, while  those of Australia are elected:*    There  is a Secretary of State for India in the  King's Cabinet.     And all graduations  6f 'self-government -limy  be: found in  the  more  than   ninety  units   of   the  British Empire.  ;  This fearful   and ,wonderful fabric  has  no   central   body.     There   is  no  "Bundcsrath" or Imperial Council. No  collective action of its units is possible.  The relation   to them  of the  Mother  Country  is illogical,  ill-defined:      To  the foreigner accustomed to the federjj  ation of the American States or of the  units of  the German Empire   the government looks planless and ineffective.  All of which   is preliminary  to  the  observation  that  there is not at the  present moment any   more  effective  institution in the  whole world of political fabrics than the British Empire.  Whatever its machinery lacks it appears to be supplied by its spirit.    The  defects of its body are made up for by  the unity of its soul.  The fact cannot be   gainsaid   that  England,   who does not begin to be as  logical  as Germany or as systematic  as  France in  matters of government,  has nevertheless   the knack of making  men step out of their own free will, to  die in her desence.    She has the gift of  keeping alive,  across   tumbling seas,  round half a world,   the undying bond  that   unites the  heart to  home.     She  has  shown herself indifferent to  the  possession   of taxing  power over her  colonies���������but what matters it?   Those  colonies  willingly  tax   themselves   to  send her warships and their sons seize  their rifles  in times of strife to go to  her aid.     She has the wisdom to train  arid  guide  the   swarthy   children   of  alien races,  and even   the foes   of yesteryear,   that   they  put   their   living  bodies between England and England's  enemies.    She has a fearfully muddled  thoery of government,   but her practice of government lays hold  on  the  deepest things in the soul of man.  As we contemplate this wonder of  an empire which is an empire of the  spirit, and. also,, an Empire whose  philosophy of politics is all wrong, but  for which the.costliest things within  the gift of man are pouted out- with-  slint. we are moved to wonder whether this "is .-t prophecy of the. future.  Will thu Slates of the coming days  make more of the spirit and less of the  machine!-' Will they reckless of constitutions and bills of rights and  fabrics of government and more of the  invisible things which touch the soul.  The Briti-di Empire is unscientific,  ft is unreasonable. Hut il is mighty,  with the greatness of tin- m>w!.

DEWET CAUGHT  The capture of General Christain  DeWet brings to a satisfactory conclusion a rebellion which was doomed to  failure tit its, inception. Iiy prompt  and vigorous, action the forces under.  General Botha have laid by the heels  a traitor who. was" undoubtedly led into the. attackaipon people of his own  blood by German gold and German  promises.  The rapidity 'with which- lhe revolt  has petered out is another vindication  of the British policy of giving lo South  Africa, a few, years after basing won  the country by force of arms, the  rights of self-government. The nuni-  b-.-r of men who rallied to the rebel  standard was .small and many of these  soon regretted their action and became willing prisoners to the union  troops. The people generally hastened .to givo-jby statements at public  meetings, letters to the press and by  active assistance in .-lamping out  the rebellion evidence of their loyalty  to the British Empire.���������Nelson News.  78 Years fn Business.

THE SUBMARINE   DANGER  The successes obtained by submarines in the war have naturally led a  good many people to "imagine that  these vessels are far easier to handle  than they really are. The submarine  in action is described in an article in  the Times, which states that: "The  submarine captain must lie in wait for  his quarry with his boat's nose pointing in the directing in which he ex  pects the enemy's vessel to pass. Then  he has to estimate the speed of the  approaching ship and her distance,  and to fire his torpedo at the point at  which he calculates she will have arrived when the torpedo has finished its  run. Probably he will discharge another torpedo a few seconds later to  make doubly sure."  It may be recalled that in the discussion aroused by the letter sent to  the Times by Admiral Sir Percy Scott,  in June last Admiral Bacon, himself  an export and experienced handler of  submarines, drew a picture of the difficulty  which beset the captain of the  boat when keeping tireless vigil watching  for his  prey.    He  said:     "If any  of your  readers wishes  to  appreciate  some  of the difficulties of submarine  work   let him  sit down under admit  of  the channel  suspended   from   the  ceiling, let him punch a hole thiough  it, and  above the hole place, a piece of  looking-glass    inclined   at    forty-five  degrees.    Let him further imagine his  chair and  glass  moving sideways as  the effect  of tide.    Let  him occasion-  ally.fill the room with steam to represent mist.     Let  him  finally, crumple  the  chart in  ridges   to represent  the  waves, and then try to carry out some  of the nianoetivers  which look so simple  when the  chart is spread out on  the  table and  looked  down  upon  in  the quiet solitude of a well lit study.'  Constant practice will, of course, enable a good officer to  handle his craft  with a great deal of skill.     But even  the most skilled are subect ro weather,  conditions,   which   may alter circumstances    very   considerably.      Rough  weather,   for  instance,  while  it may.  screen the approach of a submarine L-  also apt  to blind the submarine or at  least to make it short sighted by entering  the  periscope with spray.    N<>  one  will deny  the effective  work accomplished by the German submarine  flotilla and the skill with which it has  been, carried out, but it .should not be  needlessly exaggeiated.  It must be remembered that it is  extrenuly difficult to keep up an effective blockade of an enemy's coast  and the blockading ships are peculiarly liable to submarine, attack. Tin-  defending fleet is not subject to anything like the same risks and consequently will not lose in the same way.  The real work of the navy has been  the complete and utter distinction of  German commerce and the guardian  ship of British trade. It is not showy  but it is worth all the loss the navy  has suffered or may yet suffer.
