An order-imcouncil -has'been signed  covering., the case o������,persons holding  claims under the mining regulations,  and who have been called up or accepted for active service. According  t-> the older their'rights in the case of,  mining assessments ate to" be protected  Part of the force at the Standard  mine . were.laid off last week and the  mill shut down. About 75.men-are  still employed in'.-development', build.-  ing and timber work. It is said no  lead ore will be shipped -.-until tlie 4  per cent tax of the smelter company  is abolished.  A vein of high grade copper ore,  containing rich values in free gold,  which appears in strong formation in  several places.in the vein has been dis  covered within a thousand yards of  the G. T. P. Railway track, .and within-"-one mile of Usk station, on the  north bank of the Skeena river. The  discovery was made by J. D. Wells  and James Darby, two well known  prospectors in the district, early in  the summer, but has been kept secret  until arrangements had been made to  handle the'matter on an adequate-  scale.    At present the partnership has  staked about a dozen  chums on   the  ... 1  two  principal veins,   and have a gang  of men at work.     The ore  is a high,  [ grade of bornite  andchalcopyrite in a  silicious  base,  and assays $00 to $80 a  ton,   withoutregaid  to the  free gold  enrichments.     Ore.bins are to be constructed    adjacent    to    the   railroad  tracks, to which   the ore can be led by  a chute from the mountainside.     The  property  has recently  been'inspected  by.representatives of leading development and  smelting companies, who,  together with Mr.   W. M. Brewer" of  the   Provincial,   government 'department of mineralogy,  have been active  in the Kitselas district during-the past  season. Work done in prospecting and  developing   on    Kitselas    Mountain,  Bornite Mountain,   Gold Creek,  Copper river and Chiminess Creek during  the  past two seasons has stamped the  Kitselas district as one of  the richest  in   the province in high-grade  copper  ores.

Modern Woodmen of America hold Successful Social Dance on Friday  ' Evening  WAITING ANOTHER CHANCE  Were Ready for the German Raiders But  Fog Interfered  The escape of the German warships  ofter the bombardment of the coast of  Engl uid  is accounted as simply  the  hardest kind of luck.    The British ad;  miralty was well informed of the pending  raid  and had  made preparations  for  crushing the  enemy's  squadrons1,-,  but fog interferred and the Germans  dashed homeward.   British ships were  ready to take to sea, having been forewarned that a raid, was to he made,  but when they got within sight of the  hostile squadron,  the latter seeing the  British force,  turned and  steamed olf  at  full  speed.    The-fog was so thick  that  the visitors  were able  to cover  ��������� their  movements  and  make   a clear  getaway.     The navy is saying "Hard  luck" to itself and  confidently awaits  for another chance.    Ihe general feeling in London   is'one of hopefullness  that the Germans will  be encouraged  by their success to try again.  On Friday evening last the Modern  Woodmen of America held their  fourth annual ball iu the Star Theatre.  The dance was voted by those who attended to be one of the best ever held  in Hedley. A large crowd was piesent  and one and all enjoyed themselves.  The supper was served in the Grsind  Union Hotel and A. Winkler die! not  lose his repntiition"'for being able to  cater to the wants of the inner man.  The music" was furnished , by the  Hedley orchestra and was first-chiss,  and -showed "a ������������������decided improvement  over any they have yet given. The  members are to...be-*' congratulated for  the progress they'have made and with  a little more time will be able to rank  with the best of them. The boys are  handicapped in not having a first and  second; violin but at the present time  there is no one '-.available.' Hedleyites  should be-proud of them . and give  all the encouragement they can. The  boys can deliver the goods if they are  given a little encouragement to'do so.  After paying* all. expenses there-  was still a balance on-tho iight side of  the books for the Woodmen.  .TELEPHONE LINE TO  COPPER MOUNTAIN  The government telephone line from  Princeton to Copper Mountain will be  completed by the end of this week.  Communication between here and  .Voigt Camp has already been established and by the first of the week the  line clear through to Princeton Camp  will be in operation. This line will  prove . .of great convenience to -the-  people of Copper Mountain, and especially to the two big mining companies-  operating there.  The monthly payroll at Trail is  about $57,000. Seven hundred: men  are on the payroll. Within the past  six months six new stores have opened  and fifty houses erected. The payroll  did it.     .  The Austrian war loan of one billion  dollars closed with subscriptions of  $290,000,000. The British war loan of  $1,700,000,000 was greatly over subscribed.    Some difference.  WHEN   WIHTINO ADVERTISERS PLEASE  "MENTION THE GAZETTE  Jtossland maintains the lead as the  most active and prosperous mining  camp in the province today, with a  production of about 25,000 tons a  month -or about 1000 tons a month  more than the average monthly production for the early part of the year.  The largest shipper is the Centre Star  Group;-and it is closely run by the  Le Roi.  About sixty mile- from Fairbanks,  Alaska, and at the headwaters of tiie  Tolovana river, some rich placer has  been found. The camp is almost inaccessible.  . Over a thousand cai loads .of I'ruifc. -  have be<*n shipped this year,-by the  Okanagan Union Groweis, Limited,  central-agencies for nine co-operative  fruit unions scattered fromPentic-ton  to -Salm-on-'Arm" for which "returns  amount to $292,461,-.  According ton letter leceived by a  London woman from a friend who' had  left Germany V few days ago the  people of the kaiser's empire . were  thrown into ecstacies recently over an  aniioimcement-thafc Canada had been0-  annexed by Germany.  Peter Johnston, an old tinier of the  Boundary district, was found frozen.  at his lunch six miles up Nicholson  creek, on Sunday morning. He was  subject to fits and while getting "wood  was-attacked with one.  C. J. Stagger, a deep se.i diver, haa  made application to the United States  government for <-i permit to salve gold*  from the Russian gunboat, Neva,  which struck a rock of Cape JSdgeJ  combe, near the entrance to Sitka  Harbor, and went to the bottom more  than 60 years ago.  The cost of the war to France for  the first six months is officially figured at 5,929,-142,865 francs or ' about  $200,000,000 monthly. This total is  not only for the usual expenditures of  the army but it includes $101,400,000 -  allowed to families of soldiers: $2,000,-  000,000 to persons out of employment,  $10,500,000 for the maintenance of persons driven from their homes by the  German invasion, and to various other  items directly due to the war. The  appi opi lation committee of the French  Parliament met today to consider the  budget, which appregates for the first  six months of 1915 a total of 8,525,264,-  407 francs.  The Canadian Pacific railway 'has  purchased five new vessels on the.  stocks in Irish and Scotch shipyards  to replace the wastage caused by the  war.  The Handelsblad published an article stating that the undrilled members  of the German laudstrum of the second ,levy have been called to the ���������  colors. The levy consists of men who-  are from 39 tp 46 years old.  Very few who-ire reading the news  realize what a million men. and there  are several million in the present  European war, really means. A million men marching four abreast would  make a closed up column 750 miles -  long. The food for a milliou men for  one day would fill about 200 freight  cars.  Hon. Martin Burrell, Minister of  Agriculture, has sufficiently recovered  from his recent illness to take a trip to  the South for a few weeks' rest, which  ho has done on the advice of his phy-  sican. It is understood that he has  gone to Virginia.  GETTING READY FOR LINE  Poles  have  been  distributed and a  number of mon are at work planting  the same and stringing wire along the  road from  Oroville to  the British Columbia boundary, completing the connecting link that joins the telephone  system centering at Oroville with the  system across the line, the ramifications of which, touch  nearly 200 offices  in  British  Columbia.      The   work of  construction  i.s   in   charge   of   A..  C.  Buckley,   of Riverside,  whose  experience at line building  is a guarantee,  that when finished the link will be one  of the  best built iii   the  county.     It  will be only a short time until the new  line will be in service. T  HEDI EY <-/,?KI-jE DK(   '-1.  ]������M  /^ST  cor  fflbe f*dl������?*te|tte  ������ndvu   .

While the  people  of Canada as well as those of  _the  Mother Country no doubt expected   that  the   Get man fleet  would  et-  tempt something to justify its existence, it has remained inactive so long  that the dash of tho Mjuadron  acros-s  ". the North  Sea and the bombaidment  Of the   towns on  the- Yorkshire"coa^t  --came as a complete surprise.     ���������   ���������  ��������� ���������; ;The distance across the North Sea  .���������frptn   the Island  of Heligoland   to the  ^Yorkshire coast is about 300-miles and  ��������� .;'iiiK- .there  are- several- cruisers  iu   the  -������������������German   navy that can do 30 tniles-or  /-better an.hour they could leave-Heligoland  after  nightfall  and   be Off -the  English coast by daybreak.  There is good reason to suppose that  the action of the German fleet"was.  not wholly unexpected, by the British  admiralty as the government has is-  siii-d" warnings' to the civilans' not to  oppose the enemy if a landing was  made as'it might lead ' to irropt-'ation  of the outrages that "were committed  in Belgium'. It is utterly impossible  to guard several thousand square miles  of ocean so that no ship willing to i-on  some lisk could get through. The  cruisers which made the ^raid have  disappeared ��������� whence they:; ca me: a nd  ���������much disappointment is naturally felt,  but under the*circumstancesVit;is easy  to nhderstand how they'escaped itrid  ������������������got away clear as there wasia ��������� heavy  i'fog-at the time-ahd: afterthe. vessels  hadifinished their firing they steamed  away and  were soon   lost   sight; of.  ��������� To make matters worsethey dropped  mines a������~ they- went so that following  them was.very dangerous.  ��������� What the Germans were to gain by  a raid of this; kind is at. present hard  ���������������������������to say- but ia is-almost tv.sure bet-that  they had a definite purpose in view.  This may have been an experiment to  see if it were possible to make a well  organization raid on England. Then  again the pressure thatisbeingbrought  ���������to: bear on the German-forces by, the  allied armies is being felt and if a.successful raid could.be made:on -England  it  would mean everything; it's failure  -would make matters no worse .than at  'present.   kite contributed  }-.'3������:-'-\.;i  ��������� 4;jf^-ger-f,to''ihr S c;j^v-fli,' A^el ictirt' in  whjo'B' ht'tfxpiesSfc-'ifi'v 'ppinion -'rftJil  %l#*iimny can.feyii "-Ire-rf-'-lf fiiv\%yt-A 1,  although it may be net es'-my to n---  moic potatoes for, food and' less for  the mnnufactnre of alcohol.       ^ ^������  Mr. Baker lay* a great deal o������^fi ess  upon  the fact that Germany will not  "be able to expoit any cattle,  and frill  theiefore  have more  beef   for home  consumption,  but while he mentions  that the 3sh supply of the countiy  will be almost wholly cutoff, he does  hot!offset   thiis loss before  the increased available beef supply.     It is fair t<  Sa'y   that  he avoids   expressing   a.nj  opinion  as to  what vyill > happen after  August next.     Hubstaniially,  his contention is that by reducing t he. amount  of-potatoes made into alcohol and barley  used  in  making   beer,   Germany-  could eke out a sufficient food supply  for a twelve-month,  but he does not  take into account the extra consumption of food and the enormous wastage  inseparable from war.     Our inference  f 10111 Mr. Baker's figures is that be  fore August next food  will begin to  become   scarce   in   Geiuiany,   unle->--  peace or a great naval victory unlock  her seaports. l -  We think we ������,e������* in a probable  slmii.ige of fond one of the stiongf-t  reasons whv Germany will seek peae, .  She 'naturally imports'25 percent o  the wheat she consumes and in add -  lion upwards of 100,000,000 bushels of  barley,-which is chiefly used for food,  the foreign! feouice of supply- being  Russia, and Russian bailey not being  suitable to be made'into beer. She  has to supplement hei lye supply, and  of course must buy all her rice-a" board,  and of thib she consumes uearly'250,-  000 tons annually. If we reflect upon  the fact that there will be a. great:j  shortage of. men in Germany--., next,  spring to put;;in a crop, provided, the  couiiiry i.s still at waiv. we wilPeaKil.y  realize, that a very serious shortage of  food, awaits Germany befor������^Uie.und!  of 1915.    .     -   - ���������;-:��������� ��������� 4^'';; ,-. i.  .SlMILKAMXl- ������������������' JV\N-v������rI)IS'f RH'T,    -.  1  V.?   ������Wri'n,T (in- \A-LE -r-'  TAXEboHco tfoi   i-?l iiun-idMiiiry f-ieticl  ������        of Hedley, U I .. turnpntion, Xl������<rili.u-l  ritend    to at pi) i������;  ��������� cih h-  tlie following- dertci u ^1 ijnoV  1-omrnoncinjt nt ������ ;. >    .'inntu  th ��������� >-outh-wost con *���������    f lieli  >���������  nosi- the mouth  o!,'"      1 ������- ,     1  1 <  11 ��������� i<-e north 20 cha>i.     \< -"f      ���������  t,  110 ne south 20cliHia   ' 11-in   1 -,,���������' .-'  IKiinti of .comraoiiceni ������������������< !w.'.'j!-.t:-ie:!������:: I  fttkurm .' e\V. r ������r, ���������>��������� c n  OcL.lier Llth 1911 ' 4fMj  to ajpl) ios ��������� cih u-t-ion t<> ptmlm'.i.  dei-  .iflj,.< i ���������  -i'<cnay "and  ���������willing to irialco loahJs to PaiirferB for the Iegi-  mate noedR of tho "business^  If you  require ready * money  to buy- s������ock or  extend your farming  operations,  come In and talk  he mat t-*r over with the manager.    /��������� -,- -  Y-e muke a  "pc-daily of  Landling  Farmers  Sale Notes and Collections.'
