During 1913, the greater part of the  season usually devoted to'field work  was spent on work in connection with  the Twelfth International Geological  Congress. This work included the  preparation of the guidebooks for the  various excursions, attendance at,the  session in Toronto, and participation  as guide on Excursion* C2 to the Pacific coast and return.  In consequence of this, it was-the  middle of September before tegular  field work was begun in southwestern  British Columbia, and only six weeks  was devoted to it, including the time  spent in ' travelling ' to and from the  field. The work included the collecting of soils from Enderby, Kelowna  and Peachland, in Okanagan valley,,  for the Agrogeological Congress to be  held in St. Petersburg, Russia, in the  summer of 1914: thfe examination of a  reported occurance of oil at Kelowna,  and a general reconnaissance of the  Similkameen district-to outline the  area in which future topographic and  geological work should be carried out,  and to keep in touch with the pro  gress of mining development there*.  Hedley���������At Hedley, little has been,  done    during  the  past year  on   any  mineial  claims other than those owned by  the  Hedley Gold  Mining Company.     A group  of claims,  however,  lying  in the northwestern  part of the  camp, has been bonded by a syndicate  composed  of a  few   members  of the  Hedley Gold  Mining  Company,   and  - two -.-day moo d. d ri l.ls. .w^ce ���������- hej n y* used.  throughout  the summer  to  test  the  beds of the  Nickel Plate formation on  the Red Mountain claim.     The Nickel  Plate formation is here covered by the  Red Mountain foimation,  and where  drilling  was being done lies about 400  feet vertically below the surface.    The  slope  of  the  mountain   is  here very  steep  and   water  had   to  be  pumped  over the top of Nickel Plate mountain  and more  than   1,000  feet down  the  city for some years, a'nd' tOttcdui^bov  eries made within the last two year.*-,  have "extended the life* of���������'the mine  several years beyond this period. Altogether there is good' Feasbn to expect a continuance of mining on this  propet ty for several years to-come,  and if prospecting is actively and intelligently prosecuted-on this and adjoining property, there���������should be no  fear of the exhaustion *"of, the Hedley  camp for many years to come.  Copper Mountain ���������- At Copper  mountain, 12 miles south'of Princeton, prospecting, of tho "copper depos-,  its is being actively carried on by the  British Columbia Copper Company,  with a stall' of a.bout 100'men and live  diamond' drills. The 'Company has  options on eleven .mineral claims, but  most of the work was being done during the summer on the Sunset, Helen  "H. Gardner, and Princess May mineral claims, where a considerable tonnage of low grade coppeivore carrying  a small amount of goldiind silver, has  been outlined. !  Coalmont���������After meeting  with   a  good deal  of discouragement due to  local  crushing and  disturbance of the  coal seams,   development'in the Tula-  meen  coal basin  at  Coalmont  ceased  early  in 1913,  and  the .property was  sold   to  another company.     The old  company  had attempted, to mine  the  coal from-a  point on the north side of  ���������the basin where the outcrop approached nearest  to the Tulaiheeri riv'^r and  the railway line.     Unt'ovtunately, the  seams at this point have 'been disturbed by a strong strike-fault which left  them in a very much  shattered condition  and rendered tho *coal   unfit for  ���������use      The-aew  eoiupai;--proposes to.  mine  the coal  from the south side of  the basin where the seam outcrops on  the north fork of Granite creek.     The  seams  here  have  proved   to be  more  regular in  dip and strike and   have  already been prospected by a number  of adit tunnels, the lomrest of which is  nearly 1,000 feel in length. This point,  however,   is nearly 3  miles in a direct  line from the Gieat Not thorn Railway  line  in Tuliimeen   valley and   this dis-  HOSPITAL MEETING  The postponed annual geneinl meeting of the Hedley General Hospital  was held in Fraternity hall on Tuesday evening last at.7:30 p.m. The attendance was not as large as was desired, but as there was not much hope  of securing a large attendance and as  the meeting had been postponed once,  the business of the evening was gone  on with.  Mr. C. P. Dalton was elected chairman for' the evening and Mr, F. Ii.  French was secretary.  Minutes of the pievious meeting  were read and confirmed nnd the.  treasurer's statement was presented  at the meeting and showed that the.  past year had been a very satisfactory  one. The institution breaking even  for the year, although it had been under extra expense owing to the purchase of a. X-ray and other equipment  of a permanent nature.

On account of these difficulties, the work  can only be carried on during the  summer months.  On the property owned by the Hedley Gold Mining  Company,   all work  has been  discontinued  on  the   three  Sunnyside  mines and all the ore mined is now being drawn from No. 3 and  No. 4 tunnels of the Nickel Plate mine.  On   the  exhaustion ' of  tho  main  ore  body above tho level of No. 3 tunnel���������  an event which is not far distant���������the  mine will be worked with No. 4 tunnel  as  the main  entry.     Two ore  bodies  are now  being tniiied.     The upper or  original  Nickel Plate  ore body which  lies  on a  footwall of porphyritic gab-  bro  and   has  been   shown   to   have  a  length   of about "1,100   feet  from the  outcrop,   has beeii  stoped  out  for almost its entire length.    The lower ore  body   lies   directly    underneath    the  gabbro footwall of the  upper ore body  and   litis   been  proven  for   about  000  feet.     This  ore  body,   known  as the  No. 5 ore body,   dips about 30 degrees  to  the  northwest.     It extends below  the level  of No. 4 tunnel  and is being  mined by.an incline from  that tunnel.  Other ore bodies  have been proved by  diamond dulling to lie below the No. 5  ore  body and   these are to  be worked  by a  main   incline from  No. 4 tunnel.  Diamond  drilling  has also proved the  existence of a body of ore of unknown  extent  to  the  north  of the  main  incline.    Enough ore. remains in the ore  bodies  now being  worked to keep the  reduction  plant working  to its oapa-  tramway.  ...Four feet of serpentine ��������� quartz has  been struck in the roof of the Argo  tunnel. Practical .mining men say  that the Aigo mine has the outer  marks of.'a great mine.  The miners in Phoenix expect another raise in wages next inonth, owing to the   rise in the prize of copper.  The Highland Valley coppei' prop-  perties, near Ashcroft, have been  bonded to the British Columbia Copper Company for $100,000.  R. A. Brown has machinery on the  ground at the Volcanic mine, 10 miles  from Grand Forks, and will install it  in the spring. There is a 900-foot tunnel at this mine, which will be driven  900 feet more, giving the properly a  depth of 1200 feet. To treat the ore  Mr. Brown will erect a 1000-ton smelter a short distance from the mine.  The British Columbia Copper company will build it mill at its Princeton  property and ship the concentrates to  the Greenwood smelter. The mill  will be equipped with the oil flotation  process.  A shipment of 1-100'tons of matte  from the Hidden Creek smelter arrived at the Granby smelter in this  city this week. The matte contains a  high percentage of iron, and it is he  insr-; run through the furnaces as a flux  for the Phoenix ore. This was the  first shipment of this nature received  at the local works, but if the experiment proves successful and profitable,  other shipment are sure to follow.���������  Grand Forks Sun.  On Saturday last the Hedley ..boys'  hockey team journeyed to Keremeos  to give the. boys of that town a return  game. This time the tables were  turned and the local boys were defeated by a score of G to 1. Three  fifteen minute periods were played  and as the game was not started till  five o'clock it was pretty dark before  the finish. Keremeos had a couple  of new faces on the line up and these  accounted mostly for the defeat of  the home team. During the game  only one man was lulled oil' the ice,  Lloyd Armstrong getting two minutes  for slashing. H. Burns was referee  and R. II. Caimicheal was judge of  play.    The players were:���������  Keremeos Hedley  G. Clitike goal li. Jones  C. Harrison point R, Clare  G. Cawston cover point J. Bromley  J.Clarke right wing Leo Broun  L. Armstrong left wing B. Jones  G. Kirby centre G.Luke  On Tuesday evening the much talked  of game of hockey between Merritt  and Hedley was played at the local  rink and the many people who turned  out to see the match certainly got  their money's worth as the result of  "the game was in doubt until the tap  of tiie gong.  The game  was one  of the " best  yet  seen on the local ice  and  as  the   two    '  teams  were   pretty    evenly   matched  there    was   something   doing   every  minute they were on the ice.  The score at the end of the tliiid  period wns eight all and overtime had  to be resorted too in oidcr to find the  winning team. Five- minutes each  way wtis agreed on by both teams and  seven of the ten minutes were, gone*  befoie Hedley was able to get the-  rubber into the net and score the  winning goal. Merritt worked haul to  tie the score but the lime was short  and the local teamweie the winners  after one of the hardest fought games  ever seen 011'lhe local ice.  Men-it t started oir with a rush at  the start of the g-tme and succeeded  in scoiing twice hefoie the Hedley  boys got started and it looked for a  time as if Merritt. was, going to have  a walk away, but they could not hold  the pace for long and at the end of the'  first period the score stood 3 to 2 in  favor of Men itt but the play was all  clown tit their end of the ice and  their-, goal again in danger but the  gong saved it.  - ..JIL.,^..se.C0.I1.fl.

Merritt succeeded, in  tieing  the    score    again    only  to   have   the  local boys come  right  back and  take  the lead,   Merritt  again  succeeded  in  again tieing  and  Hedley, again   took  the lead.    With  only  a few   minutes  left to play the   visitors scored   again  and  as the gong  rang in  a couple  of  there was no more damage done.  Hiid the ice been in better shape the  game would have been faster, but as  far its the spectators wero concerned  they were given enough thrill for one  night and ovcrbody went home happy.  Few .penalties were banded out  during the game and in this respect  Merritt-was the ono to suffer, having  had two of their men put off for tripping for three and two minutes.

A few days  ago two merchant vessels were sent to  the bottom, one apparently torpedoed  and the >)t her sunk by mine!- attached  to the craft by the. crew of the sub-  niaiine. It is not known whether  one or moie of the enemy's underwater craft arc operating in the Irish  Sea, but the incidents reported show  the dangers to comiU'-i -.-..' in Mm new  and more powei fill sail.marines. They  are apparently able to operate at a  long distance from their bases. The  submarine LF-21, which is mentioned  as having torpedoed the Ben Craiichaii,  must, have travelled- over G00 miles  from her base to the Irish Self, even  supposing it possible that "'she left  Zeebruggee. The pieseticc of even  one of them in the Tiish Sea shows  the menace they ate to- merchant  ships. A new danger, that it will be.  difficult to combat, is apparent.   . ,  Germany's  submarines,   which   are  designated   U-17 to U-24 and   in which  class  is  included   the U-21,   are boats  equal  to  the British  D class.    They  displace   750  tons   when   submerged.  They have a gun   armament of one 14-  pounder disappearing gun,   which can  come  into  action   within   twenty   seconds of the boat rising to the surface,  ��������� and one 1-ponnder  automatic anti-aircraft gun, , which "remains  outt-ide the  boat and is   exposed-to  the sea when  she dives.    The class which is numbered from  U-25 onwards  contains boats  newer and more powerful.   It was one  of these  which torpedoed the Russian  cruiser   Pallada.     These   submarines  are driven   by heavy oil engines when  on   the   surface   and    with    electric  motors for use under water.     Each of  the  latter German ..submarines   have  four or five   torpedo  tubes and each  carries  a    supply  of (tight   or   moie  torpedoes.      The  limited    supply   of  torpedoes accounts for one of the mer  chant    vessels    being   blown    up    by  rnines.     It is easy to understand why,  especially  when   dealing   with   small  vessels, mines  should be used and not  torpedoes, foi* much, if not all the. submarine's efficiency would have vanished   were it supply of torpedoes to run  out.  It was generally thought that the  range of Germany's Latest submarines  would be tit least 1,000 miles and possibly, in some cases, as high as 2,000.  Germany, indeed, laid claim to have  these boats that would make the trip  to the Mediterranean. Obviously she  has submarines that can reach the  Irish Sea and return to their bases in  safety and they will have a fruitful  field to ply in along this part of the  English coast line. The experience of  the war shows that torpedo boat destroyers a'*e invaluable as a   defence  against the underwater.,craft-, and if  Germany is determined tirpursue this'  new. phrase of warfare against the  British mercantile marine it seems as  if destroyer flotillas will have to be-  more extensively used on the different  trade routes. It would be interesting  'to learn what was the starting point  of the submarine, or submarines, that  have been npcitiling in the Irish Sea.  If-it, was Zeebruggee, an eventuality  that hardly seems possible, their menace to li-.tflh' is further emphasized.

He stayed over  for the hockey' match on Tuesday  night.  On Tuesday afternoon W. Simons  came in and gave us a bouquet of but  tercups which he had picked on Pinto  flat. This is the earliest they have  picked here for a number of years.  G. MacEachern and Eddie Simpson  have, been busy for the' past week  thawing out the water pipes around  the town. The last cold snap pretty  near put the town water out of com  mission and many of the people were  carrying water.  While driving home from Princeton  after the hockey match on Monday  night Mr. Mitchell of Coalniont had  "the misfortune to drive off the road iu  the dark and the team and cutter  went over the steep bank. Mr. Mitchell escaped unhurt.  Jimmie Robertson, Louie Nicholson  and one of the Tumas boys are in a  pretty bad way from poisoning and  there is little hope held out for their  recovery. It appears that they- had-  be'en drinking the alk'tili'"water froni  the spotted lakes, which are below  Keremeos. for medical purposes.  . On Saturday last Mrs. Beit Jones  had the misfortune to fall off the sidewalk in front of Boyd's residence on  Webster street and has been laid up  ever since. Where the sidewalks are  so high, a railing should be run along  both sides. If this isn't done someone  is going to fall off the sidewalk some  dark night and kill themselves.  Since, the stop logs have been put  in place at the dam there has been  good skating on the river and many  of the skaters of the town have enjoyed a SKate on it. The dam has  backed up the water as far as the  slaughter house, and a sheet of ice  about half a mile long was in the best  of shape for skating.  Mi'. R.A. Rutherford returned home  fiom Spokane on Wednesday after  being away for about ten days.

Line if Business Warrants the  Experiment  Vancouver,  Jan. 27���������A   definite announcement  was   made   this morning  by F. W. Peters,  General Superintendent of the  British Columbia  division  of the C. P. R. that the competed portion   of    the   Kettle   Valley   railway  would   be  placed   in   operation   when  the  company  put into effect  the new  summer time tallies, at the end of May.  A   daily   passenger service   between  Penticton   and  Spences'  Bridge,   the  junction point with the Kettle Valley,  via  Merritt,  and the main line of the  C. P. R., is planned, and thiough connections   between    Penticton    will   be  afforded.       Passengers    leaving    the  Okanagan  in the   morning will reach  this  city the same night,   which now  takes about 16 hours.  The new service will lie a great boon  to fruit growers as express shipments  will get to Vancouver the same day.  Mr. Peters said, in response to tin enquiry as to whether "fruit specials"  would be operated, that if the business  ���������warranted, the company .might afford  such facilities.  An opinion was expressed by Mr.  Peters that the Hope Mountain section of the Kettle Valley would be  ready for traffic late in August.  It Was Undoubtedly the Work  Real Genius.  The Great Wall is often stigmatized  as a monument of human shortsightedness and folly by many who^ a"*.*  willing to rhapsodize over the GrcM  Pyramid. A great architectural wo:.;  the pyramid was not. It was simply  a stone' tumulus, and everything goes  to prove that it was nothing more  than a .superlative mausoleum, a  monument of the vanity of the monarch who was entombed beneath it.  and considered either as mere bulk  or as an engineering feat it sinus  into utter insignificance beside the  Great Wall, a work of vast pviictic.il  uf.ilitv.  It is in fact the  Great Wall  more  than    anything    which    stamps    its  founder for all time for what he \vn:-  ���������a man of the highest order of genius, possibly the greatest genius who  has   borne   sway   on   the  earth.     The  Chinese of the second century 15. C,  like the Romans of the first, had arrived at a critical stage in the course  of   their   development,   and   each   nation' succeeded   in   producing  a   hero  at   the   'right   moment   to   load   it   to  the   accomplishment   of   its , destiny.  The   prescience    with    which    Julius  Caesar,  confronted   with  the problem  of finding  a  suitable defensive  frontier   for   the   Roman   empire,   solved  it by the occupation of the line of the  Rhine   is   rightly   considered   as   one  of   the   chief    reasons    for    his    preeminent place in tho world's history.  The guarded river that the genius of  the    groat    dictator   had   made   the  frontier of the Roman empire was the  terminus of barbarism for nearly five  centuries.     Chi   Huang  Ti   was   confronted with  the  same  problem.    He  solved  it  with   equal  prescience  and  greater success  by   an  inspiration  cf  genius      unparalleled      in      history.  Where nature had placed no barrier  he  reared  an  artificial  one,  and for  ten centuries the northern barbarians  pressing down from the great central  tableland   strove   in    vain:   to    burst ���������  through  the  bulwarks  which   he  had  interposed    between    their    ravening  hordes and the rich plains of China.  Probable    the    Great   Wall   was   a  more formidable obstacle to the barbarians    of    central * Asia   than ��������� the  Rhine   lo   the   Germanic   hordes    cf  Europe.    It was  at once a well defined frontier, a magnificent military  road   and   an. impregnably   intrenched picket line along the border. 'The  towers were probably all occupied by-  pickets    and    communication    maintained by cavalry patrols, a very- easy  matter on the platforms of the wall.  The   gates . were    doubtless    strongly  garrisoned,   and   at   strategic   points  along the wall and to its rear bodies  of field troops collected in permanent  fortresses     and    intrenched    camps.  The wall itself was  a formidable obstacle   to   a   band   of  marauders.     If  they   succeeded   in   scaling   it   there  still remained the nearly insuperable  difficulty    of    bringing   across   their  horses.' and   a   Tartar   without   his  horse is well nigh helpless.    Did   a  stronger force make an attack it must  still   have  been  an   easy  matter   to  concentrate  on the  threatened point  before  the   invaders   could pass   in  any numbers.
