Frantic wireless call brought a number of British vessels and according to  the admiralty report two of thf invaders had,been sunk and that the  other two were slowly being pounded  to pieces.  Great damage was done to the towns  bombarded and the residents' were  fleeing to Hull and York,  It is thought that a series of naval  battles are being fought all up and  down the north sea.

ROLL   ME   A GAME   AT   ROLLS  The  years dividends   from   British  Columbia mines  may now be close!}*  estimated.   It is not likely that any of  the coal companies will be in a position  to  declare a dividend  so  that all dividends   are   from the   metal  mines.  Standard   silver-lead   heads   the   list  with $'175,000, but  the disorganization  of the. market for silver is  not likely  to add to   this amount  by the close of  the year. Granby has distributed $44!),  955, and   will pay  no further dividend  this  year  on  account of   the  copper  situation.     The  Consolidated Mining  and Smelting Company  has distribut-  threu dividends of 2 percent., amounting  to  $384,2(51,  and  will declare another  dividend for this quarter,  making a   total of $464,352.     Hedley Gold  Mining.Company has paid three quarterly dividends of 5 per cent, amounting  to   $1SO,000,  and will  declare another 5 per cent,   dividend this month  absorbing  .$(10,000, also a bonus of ten  per cent.,   absorbing a further $120,-  0J0, making a total  dividend distribution  of this company for  the year of  $300,000,   thus   niiiking the  total dividends for the year $1,749,307.    But for  war conditions it is probable Standard  Silver-Lead would have  paid out another   $225,000 and  Granby   $449,955  more.  The work of putting in the power  plant for the Daly Reduction Company on the Similkameen river, that  was started about a year" ago, is fast  nearing completion and Hy the first of  the new year superintendent Jones expects to have everything in readiness  foi-the turning,out of --juice." About  25 men are at word at the'present time  and each day a big difference can bo  seen in the.amount of work still to be  donei " \  The-workof putting in,*'the dam and  ��������� f  mime was finished some time auro,  ex-  cept a few small jobs which will not  hinder the running of the plant  as these can''be done sit any time.  The machine has been put in place for  the raising and lowering of the stop  logs for the" dam and the logs themselves are all ready to be'.put in place.  The flume is all completed and this  end of the work is all ready for.busi-  ness.  The wo.rk that has?been' going on at  the other end on the power house and  other buildings is being' rushed and  good progress is being", made. The  penstock is nearly completed, all tie  frame work being done,- and acouple  of days work on it would finish it.  The building for the power house is  all completed and tiie machinery  paitly installed.  At the present time the big Smith  and Company waterwheel is in place  and also the big generator, while the  pipe line from the penstock to. the  waterwheel is nearly completed. This  will be finished before the end of the  week.  The wires are all up between the  two power houses and but a few homs  will be required to connect up the new  plant.  A travelling crame was used for the  installing of the machinery and this  helped to a great extent in the putting  in place of the machinery as sume of  the pieces weighed as much as 12 tons.  A Westinghouse alternating curient  generator of 1250 k. w. will supply the  power and this will be run by the big  S. Smith and Company waterwheel of;  2000 horsepower. A Lumbard oil governor is to be used- to control the  wheel.  It is expected that the power plant  here will be kept running this winter.  The motor that is to be connected to  the air compressor has not yet arrived  but it is expected along now any day.  TRI-WEEKLY SERVICE  Great  Northern  to Cut  Train Service in  t'.ie Similkamesn  At ,a regular, monthly meeting of  the Princeton Boaul of Trade held  Monday evening, the matter of the  proposed tri-weekly service between  Oroville and this point was dealt with  at considerable length, says the  Princeton Star.  The rnombers had before them a  letter from W. 'Carsewell, division  superintendent at Marcus, stating that  the   company   contemplated "'cutting  GENERAL NEWS OF INTEREST  One thousand boxes of Okanagan  apples will be, shown at the Panama  Exposition in Frisco."  The Association of the German Ammunition Works announces that, from  January 1st, it will charge ten per  cent extra, for all articles produced.  This is due ��������� to the rise in the price of  most articles used in the army.    '  r  The betting at Lloyds last week was  $40 to $500 that the war would be over  by the end of March. The premium  fluctates with the amount of business  offered.     The greater the demand for  the service down to three days a week,  for  the  reason  that the  revenue de-   insurance  the higher is  the premium  rived does not justify more than a triweekly service, and even that would  be maintained at a loss. "General  business conditions are such" he says,  that the wages of trainmen and cost  of fuel more than equal receipts of this  territory and feel that we aie not  justified in maintaining a daily service under the circumstances.  In reply the secretary was instructed to suggest to Mr. Carsewell that in  case of the cut down of the service  that trains bo run to Princeton one  day, staying over night, and returning to Oroville the following day. Ihis  would facilitate the mail service, so  that the people here would not be  compelled to wait over two days before replying to incoming mail. The  board signified that no serious obji c-  tions would be made feo the cuitail-  ment of the service so long as the  company agreed to reinstate the daily  train schedule not later than April 1st  next. In taking this step the board  consulted with, prominent business  people in Hedley.      ~ " "��������� ~~  MOVIES SHOW HIM  FAMILY IN  PLIGHT  Belgian   in   Canada   Sees   Mother  and  Little" Bro'-hers and Sisters Driven  Out by Germans  !MAKE SHELLS IN CANADA  Eight Million Dollars'  Worth   Have Already Been Manufactured  Ottawa, Dec. 8.���������Two hundred thousand s-hells for the allies have already  been made in Canada and six hundred  thousand more are now in process of  manufacture.  As has been stated the British Government early in the war asked the  Canadian government what could be  done regarding a. supply of shells for  the Allies and General Hughes conceived the idea of having huge quantities made in the Dominion.  He got a committee of experts together including such  authorities as  London, Out., Dec. 9.���������At a local  moving picture theatre last night  Joseph de Naif, a Belgian attached to  the active service battalion in training here.recognized in a film depicting  the German devastation of Belgium,  his mother, little brothers and sisters,  with all their belongings, huddled in a  little ciirt, fleeing befoie the Germans  in the vicinity of Termonde, his old  home.  De Nolfe broke down completely. The  sight served to intensify his eagerness  to get at the enemy, however, and today he got transferred to the machine gun section of the battalion that  he might sfrmd a chance of working  greater havoc among the Germans  when he reaches the firing line.'  CANADA'S TRADE  Canadian trade for the . twelve  months ending August last totalled  .$1,063,908,233, a decrease of $43,030.-  379 as coinpaied with the proceeding  twelve months. The decrease in trade  in inrichandisc is considerably larger  than the aggregate figures show since  coin and bullion imports increased, by  nearly twenty millions, and exports  by some three millions. The decrease  in imports of merchandise during the  twelve months was $117,111,71(5, the  total for the  year being $575,244,641.  Col.  Bertram   and  Col. Cantlie,   who   Exports of meichandise totalled $108,-  acted in conjunction  with the cxpeits   527,872, an increase of $75,091,563.  of the militia department.  They developed a plan to distribute  the orders among the various shops  in Canada which bud the proper  equipment. It worked successfully  with the result that about $S,00(),000  has been dostrihutcd among the firms  of Canada. The money conies from  the Allies.  There were increases of over $18,-  000,000 in exports of animal produce,  of $21,000,000 in exports of agricultural products and of nearly $15,000,1,10  in exports of manufacturer.'. Expoi ts  to the United Kingdon during the  twelve months totalled $2I8,254,9GS,  an increase of $33,215,708. Exports to  the United States totalled $200,034,603,  an increase of $33,473,678.  The government basset aside Sun--  day, January 3rd, as a day of special  intetcession and prayer on beli.-ilf of  the British and allied cause and lo the  memory of those who have fallen in  battle. The same Sunday will be observed in Great Britain in the. same  manner.  According to a despatch from Paris,  a German document was found in a.  village on the Aisne say that economy  in the use of projectiles is necessary.  The reason, it is stated, is that the  German ammunition factories, even  when working at full force, are unable to supply indefinite amounts of  ammunition for the army.  Mexican money has been discovered  in B.C. and the public is warned  against accepting it. The money is in  the form of $5.00 bills and hears a  strong resemblance to Dominion notes.  They are drawn on the Banco de  Coahulla and are value for five pesos,  which would be equal to five dollars,  only the "Mexican.currency is denreci-  ated by fifty per cent.  The British war oflice is considering  the use of long "beefskin" moccasins,  such as are used by Canadian lumbermen, for the men at the front this  winter. The moccasins as manufactured in Canada are. waterproof and  with heels and heavy soles attached  would prove a great boon to the men  bearing the brunt of the lighting.  Many orders for such moccasins have  already been received from the men in  the Canadian contingent.  According to a Petrograd despatch  to the Havas Agency, the 'Russian  Minister of Finance,"in'. a report tip  pended to the 1915 budget, estimates  tha cost of the war to Russia.'up to the  end of October, old style calendar  (November 13th, general calendar), as  1,7S5,000,000 roubles ($892,000,000). The  expenses have been met by various  issues of short term bonds, treasury  notes and loans, totaling 1,850,000,000  roubles ($925,000,000). Further.issues,  both interior and foreign, will be made  as tiie circumstances require.  A preparation which, it is said, will  stop almost instantly the How of blood  from a wound, has been invented by  Professor Theodor Koclier, of Brine,  who was awarded the Nob.-I Priz" for  surgery in 1911, and his .-issi.-t.int, Dr.  A. Fonce. The new preparation is  called "coagulen". It is in the form  of a powder, and is dissolved in water  before being applied to a wound. The  discoverers of coagulen have made a  gift of their invention to the armies-  in the field, and have sent largij,quantities of the powder to the surgical  headquarters of both the German and  French armies. The discovery is regarded by medical men as likely to  save the lives of thousands of soldiers,  sinco it can be applied by untrained  hands, so that the wounded man himself or his comrade, might use the solution.

Hi slriluition lias followed  swiftly in (lie wake of lhe sea light oil'  the (/'hile.-m coast. Only, five works  wen- allowed to lel.ipM- In fore a reckoning was calh-d with- lhe German  Pacific licet, and the enemy's warships  had lo pay the price, wiih interest,  for their success against Admiral Sir  Christopher Cr.-ulock's squadron. The  loss of the Scharnlioist and Gneisenau  has destroyed the effective striking  power of the flyii.g cruisers which  have been a menace to British interests for the past four months. The  action illustiate." that the British navy  in spile of its ptemviipation in the  Ninth Sea, is still able to patrol effectively tho outer wateis, and safeguard  the. Empire, no matter in what reunite  parts.  By the naval victory 'o!f the Falkland Islands Admiral Stu'rdee has  cleared the seas of three of the seven  German cruisers'which were known to  be searching the oceans for prey in  the form of Biitish lnei'-haiitiiieh and  has avenged the sinking of the-Good  Hope imd Maminotith by inflicting a  loss in tonnage and men which is  greater than that 'suite red '"by the  squadron under Admiral GradoeK.  Details as to the number of British-  warships engaged and their sp<--ed and  gun power are withhold by the admiralty so that comparisons of fighting  strength cannot at- this time be made.  The people of the British Empire  have good reasons for congratulating  themselves on the fact that at one  blow nearly half the number of hos  tile vessels at large have been destroyed and that the command of the sea  which has not-yet been seriously  threatened should have been made  still more secure.  The effects of the  destruction of the  Scharrihorst,   Gneisenau  and   Leipzig  will be  far reaching.      While they remained  afloat  they were a continual  menace  to  British  interests.      In addition   to these three  vessels the light  cruisers  Emden and Konigsberg,  and  the armed  merchant cruisers Kaiser  Wilhelin  dec Grosse  and  Cap Trafalgar, of tho  vessels that were tit large,  have   been  accounted   for   since   the  commencement of  the  war.      When  considering  these  results  it must he  remembered    that   the   sea   areas   in  which these  German vessels operated  was  very  large.      For  many   weeks  they enjoyed the   benefit of a  worldwide wireless  service.    Provisions for  coaling had been made long in advance  of the outbreak of  hostilities.    Their  chances of remaining afloat were fur-,  ther heightened by the fact that British cruisers, engaged in patrolling the  Atlantic and Pacific, were slower than  as long as they weieable to secure  coal theie was a possibility they could  elude their pursuers, and that at the  best only a happy combination ofeii-  cuiii.stances would lead to their removal. This theorizing reckoned \\ ith-  out- the long arm of' the admiralty  which, during recent weeks appeals lo  have been tluu ouglily informed ol' the  whereabouts of the enemy'.--- ve.-sels.  The battle oil'the Falkland Islands is  proof of this.  Britain's navy with its silent pressure in the. North Sea, its patrol of  the world's waterways, its iiisiiiani-e  th-it our troops can cross the seas iu  safety to the battlefields of Europe,  and its ability to huntdown the Hying  cruisers of the enemy, is the grate.'-1  fic-tor in this world-wide war. Tie  i-illiience it is exerting towards tl e  final vicloiy on land, as well as on sea,  i; iuiiiii-iisui cable. In all history theie  h.is never been so complete a triumph  o!" sea power.

Better than Ringing  E)oorrbells  A PIANO manufacturer recently made a house-  *^~V to~house canvass. He's one of those men with  an absurd fear of the ''waste-circulation" bugaboo  ���������cannot get away from the haunting thought that  only 10 but of every 100 readers of a newspaper  may be possible buyers of his goods.  So he refused to advertise, and went a-canvassing  ���������inviting people to come to his piano recitals.  Then he wondered why they didn't come.  This is why:  He wasn't reaching the people.  His canvassers rang every door-bell in  town. They talked to some one in every  house.  But one in every household isn't enough  ���������particularly if it doesn't happen to be  the right person. And, as 'a rule, it wasn't  the right person���������it was a servant, or a  child. The woman of the house was seldom  seen; the man of the house, never.  Now, if the piano maker had placed an  iad. in the newspaper, it would have reached  thousands, where the canvassers could  reach only hundreds.  And even though only 10 per cent, of the  readers are actual piano buyers, this does  not mean that the advertising read by the  other 90 per cent, is wasted; Advertising  talks, not only to the prospective buyer,  but also to his wife, his grown-up sons and  daughters, his mother���������-even his mother-  in-law. Their coaxing will help to convince  the head of the house-���������and pretty soon  there'll be a piano in that home.  This and dozens of similar cases which  might be cited to show that "waste circulation" is an empty bugaboo, and should  deter no one.  Take the motor truck. It can be sold  only to large firms Yet a motor truck  manufacturer is successfully Advertising  in daily papers. He realizes that he must  reach, not alone the managers of the concerns that require trucks, but also their  directors, their foremen, their head machinists, etc. It is found in actual practice  that this Advertising radiates in a thousand  directions, and again converges most astonishingly to influence the house that has  made up its mind that horse-trucking is  too costly and inefficient.

Major Meg raw's visit was cut shoit  last week as he received word that  there was some urgent business that  needed his attention and he left again  for Vernon on Thursday afternoon's  train.  The hunting season closed on Tuesday. Everyone that has venison has  foiutecn days in which to use it up or  destroy it. Anyone having venison in  his possession at the expiration of that  time are liable to a fine.  Mr. and Mrs. F. II.

They returned on Saturday by lail Mr. French  having left his car in Penticton to get  some repair work done.  The people of Princeton aie agitating the movement of the land registry offices from Fairview to Piinceton.  One of the arguments they are using  is that Fairview is isolated off the  line of rail, aiid a difficult place to  reach; while Princeton is ou the line  line of two railways.  - The British Columbia' magazine has  asked for photographs of the town  and district to be displayed with appropriate descriptive matter during  the Panama Exposition at San Francisco next year. Princeton has already seen that it is represented.  What "abb iit Hedley? It is time that  something is being done.  The first skating of the season was  enjoyed on Saturday. The cold snap  of the past week has been taken full  advantage of by the rink management and they now have a good sheet  on the rink. That the rink is popular  here there i.s no doubt for every evening a goodly crowd of both old and  young may be seen there enjoying  themselves. The boys who put up the  money for the rink a couple of seasons ago are to be congratulated for  the success they have made of it.  A game of basketball was played in  the Star Theatre between two teams  from the town. The game was fast  and exciting and sit times a trifle  rough but referee Robertson had the  game well in hand. The Whitecollars  won by a score of 12 to 9. The line-ups  were at follows: Whitecollars���������E.  Miller, Mrs. Simons, P. Robertson, A.  Greeley, H. McOulloch. Blue Jackets  ���������D. Lyall, F. Messenger, V. Messenger, R. Bowerman, E. Beale.  A meeting of the Hospital Board  was held on Monday evening last at  hospital. One of the topics under discussion was the annual ball. A committee was appointed to look after the.  for the ball was set for Friday evening  January 22nd. "The ball will be a  masquerade, arid it is expected that it  will beheld in the Star Theativ, although it was not definitely settled i'S  to the hall. As the expense for the  upkeep of the hospital has'been pretty  high this year, owing to the purchase  of the x-ray and electric sti-rlizer, it is  hoped that everyone whether they  take in the ball or not will buy a ticket, thereby helping to keep the institution open.  The Hedley hockey team are practicing hard  in order.-" to get  in shape for  the season.     Hedley should be able to  put a  winning  team on   the ice  this  year as there are- a'number of faces in  tiie line-up this yenr that arc old play  ers.    There may ��������� be some  trouble in  getting names this  year on account of  some of  the players from both  Keremeos and Princeton   volunteering and  leaving for the front.   Already Princeton has a team as Mr. A. Horswill had  a letter  from  one  of  the   Princeton  boys on ^Tuesday .wanting the Hedley  team   to  play  at Princeton  on   New  Year's Day.   Here's hoping that Keremeos will  have a team this year; they  have never been   behind in any line of  spot yet.  The following clipping handed us by  Mr.   \V. Sampson  of the Nickel Plate  mine  may  be of interest to  some of  our readers.    "Mr. W, Liddicoat, who  arrived home  with the Canadian con-  tingent, has been spending a few days  with his parents at Gover Valley.   Mr.  Liddicoat who was formerly a "crack  shot"  in the  St. "Austell district,   has  spent a considerable time in Aniciiea,  and at the outbreak of war immediately enlisted   in the;Quebec Rifles.     He  left homo on Tuesday to join his regiment at  Salisbury  Plain,   which   he  says, will shortly proceed to the front.  Mr. Liddicoat said it was a grand and  imposing  sight to  see tho  contingent  coming across,    "Our chaps," he says,  are anxious to have a shot at the Germans,  and   they  mean   it   too.

KEREMEOS, the Centre of Lower Similkameen���������Famed for Fruit Growing  HIDDEN CREEK OPERATIONS  A production of 2,000.000 pound of  cnpper from two furnaces of the Hid-  ' den . Creek smelter during November  was accomplished, according to preliminary 'returns.- In October the  yield was. 1,794,308 pounds turned out  at a cost of 0'-cents a, pound at the  smelter. An even better showing in  the matter of costs may be shown for  the past-month.  By the fir.-t of July Hidden Creek  -will have a largely increased output  at.a cost" of close to 7.". cents a pound,  f. ii." b. New York.  Against less tlrm IS pounds recovery., from the Phoenix property, the  Hidden7creek.inine has been yielding  40 pounds ,>f copper net per Ion. The  ultimate cost .of this propel ty will be  lowered to seven cents a pound if indications prove up.  The company has placed its management control in the hands of an "operating 'committee" ��������� of three dire<-tors���������  something unique in mining affairs.  MINING NOTES  BLOWING   IN   MORE FURNACES  Grand Forks, Dec. 12th���������Two furnaces at Granby smelter were blown in  last Monday, thc: third will go into  operation to-day and the fouith on  Monday. With the increasing firmness of the copper market it is generally expected, that six furnaces will be  in blast before the end of the year,  . and January may see the full battery  of eight furnaces in operation.  Proportionate operations have been  under way at Granby mines at  Phoenix, the first ore coming down  the hill last Saturday, and with the  consequent activity in raihvay circles  both cities have already taken a new  lease of life.���������Grand Forks Gazette.  The Metal Markets  Copper is already showing an improvement in price, the latest quotations for electrolytic being 12.75 as  against 11.50 recently ruling. Further  improvement is a certainty, and it is  probable that by the time peace is declared the copper market will show-  revival approaching the high level of  recent years. Germany is now offer-  Sac per lb for copper. Prior to the  war this country was stated to be a  customer for about 60 per cent, of the  copper exports of North America-  While Germany is a producer of copper, the production is not greater than  the output of this province.  Lead maintains its price in London,  and as it has not fallen below the  figure on which the Canadian bounty  can be claimed the local lead producers  can get no nssistaace from that source.  The outlook for the metal is considered good. After the war a determined  effort will be made to have the use of  silver for monetary purposes extended  and there will be an active, revival of  ' the bimetallic movement. If this carries, silver mining will see a return of  the good old days.  It is a pity something is not done to  develop the meicury deposits of British Columbia. The price of mercury  has trebled and is the highest on record. No doubt the war demand has  something to do with this condition as  fulminate of mercury is largely in demand as a detonator for explosives.  A junk dealer from Republic had  heard, that Ford, the auto manufacturer used tin cans in the construction  of his car. He gathered up several  hundred tomato cans, sauerkraut and  oyster cans and sent them to the Ford  factory along with a request that thoy  be made into an auto. A week later  he received a Ford by freight and a  check for $9.80. He had sent in too  many cans.���������Chesaw News.  One cirload of gold ore, 30,900 lbs.  on which the assay would place a  value of approximately. $1,000,000, is  b.'ing loaded at Cripple Creek for shipment to Denver. This is said to be  the most valuable car of ore ever shipped on the continent.  The returns to the Bureau of Mines  for the first nine months of the year-  show a heavy reduction in the output  ot silver, compared with last year.  The production, was 19,448,018 ozs.,  valued at $1(),'.'82.229, a decrease in  value of ,$2,8t*5,710. The output of  nickel was 18,085 tons, valued at $-1,-  023,550���������an increase of $197,923.    "  Notwithstanding .the recent issue of  an. Ordei>in-Council prohibiting, the  export of nickel to most of- the European countries, a feeling" prevails that  Germany may still be drawing supplies of this metal .from Canada .via  the United States, and more drastic  methods are being strongly advocated.  It is pointed out that no nickel is exported anywhere from Canada except  in the form of matte, which is refined  in the United States, so that the action  of the government entirely fails to  meet the case. The question is likely  to come up at the next session of  Parliament.  According to the Vancouver Sun, a  prospector has returned from the  north with the. report that he has discovered tin in place, about 190 miles  up the coast. This is the first time in  the history of British Columbia" that  tin in place has been found. It is  understood that a company has been,  formed in Victoria to assist in the  further development of this property.  To further the work a compressor is  to be installed. Some years ago government geologists were on the coast  searching for indications of tin, but  while considerable float was found,  they were unable to  trace the source.
