(  There Iras just arrived at tin* editor's  desk Bulletin JST<>. 1, for the current  year, issued by the 13. C. Bureau of  Mines, lieing a preliminary review and  estimate of mineral prod net ton during  1915.  The bulletin is a testimony to the  present efficient organization of the  mines department and with the coming confirmation of Hon. Lome Campbell as Minister of Mines for B. G. one  feels encouraged to look forward to a  great uplift in mineral production  throughout the Province.  The bulletin contains a very'careful  exposition of ruining conditions as affected by the  'war'rind continues:  In British, Columbia the recruiting  soi-geant has found such ready response from the prospectors and miners  that prospecting is practically at a  standstill and is left to.those too old to  be' accepted for military service or  otherwise disqualified.  Of all the rnetals produced in British  Columbia, silver was the only one the  price of which was not raised by the  war, for the reason that it is not used  in war materia Is, despite the old saying that "wars aiewon with silver-  bullet!-." On the contrary, the price  of silver fell off v^ry -.considerably.; in  101.3 the price of silver in New Vork  varied 'between 08 and 57.8 cents averaging for the year 59.S rents: in 1914  the average price for the year was3J7S  while fur 1915 theaveiage price for the  year was only 49.7 cents.  This low price of silver- acted .as a  deterrent to production in many of  the silyt������rlead nines of the Slocan,  Ainswoi th. and .Nelson Divisions, the  ores of which contain. 011 the average,  a .In Hit twice the .value in silver that  they do in lead.  The various medals and their prwkr-  tion are reviewed    in   detail    later   in  this, report, hut it might be noted I ware  that the   following   table   shows   tlie  gross value of   the   anctallie   minerals  recovered as being  .$20,S95,096\  which  represents an increase over   last   ye.-ur  of   over   $5,000,000., .a   percentage   increase of about 33  pe.r   cent., which is'  ���������certainly a matter of   congi ,-itula ti<Halt, might further be pointed out that;  tlie   metalliferous     output     for   1915!|  would appearto be the   greatest in the  Province, being more than 10 per cent  greater than in the forii.ie.r- record year  of 1912.  The features of the year .are the very  great increases irr toe copper and zinc  productions, and, as the price.-- of both  these rnetals seem to show aid indication of serious decrease, while the  present .developments of the properties give u-asou to expect further large  increases iji 1910, there is every cause  lo believe that the coming year will be  a record one as far as the metalliferous  mines are concerned.  The estimated mineral production  during 1915 had a total value of $29,-  200,58-1 which is an increase of nearly  three millions over the previous year  and the forecast for 101b* is that it will  witness a much greater increase over  1915.  Discussing placer gold the report  mentions the recovery of $745,000  which is probably $185,000 more than  1914. Nine tenths of this amount  conies from the Cariboo and Cassiar  districts.  The Similkameen and Tulameen  rivers produced more gold this year  than for some years back and give  promise of again being a factor in the  placer-gold industry,  Yale Mining   Division rna.de   an un  usually good output, owing to the  very, low water in the river exposing  the bars.  The quantity* of lode gold produced  seems to have been less than in any of  the last three years. The output is  estimated af'$5,051.293, as compared  with $5,109,001 in 1914, a decrease of  $57,711. The chief reason for this decrease is a very heavy decline in the  output of the,Nelson Division and a  lessening of tj.ie outputs in the Boundary and Coast Districts. To oll'sct  this there were increases in Oiniiicca,  Skeena, and Trail Creek Divisions.  The production in the Rossland District shows an increase of 3,411 oz. as  compared with 1014, which is accounted for by an increase in the tonnage  shipped.  The Boundary District shows a decrease of 2,709 <y/.. as compared with  1914. The Granby Company's mines  made an increase of about S.000 oz.,  but the British Columbia Copper Company, the .'level and the Union show  decreases respectively of about 5,000,  4,300 and SOO oz.  The Nickel Plate production shows  a slight increase over 1915 amounting  to a little more than '38,000 oz. The  other- propei ties in this district only  contribute small amounts and those of  the Gar-mi and Dividend-Lakeview  produced less than last year.  s utter;  On National Service  There was liitle change at gold-treatment mills,   except   that the   Hedley  company" made     additions     to     the  .machinery   and plant at its   40-sta.mp  mill at Hedley,   Siuiilkameen.    These  included a   24   by 36 in.  Tray lor  jaw-  ci.usher. a second 5   by 22-ft. tube-mill  with   Moritaiia-Tonopah lining, and a  Dorr classifie^-which, working in continuous system   with the   tube mill, is  giving satisfactory results* four cyanide tanks,   two being 34 by   16 ft; and  ���������two 34 by IS ft., made of Pacific Coast  fir.:-and a third.Olivet-continuous filter,  S by 12ft., of la test design. The hydroelectric generation station on   Siniilkanieen river was  completed .at the beginning of tlie year: its twin  .turbines  have a capacity of 2100  lip.; cm rent is  transmitted over.a line 17,000 ft. long  to the power-house At the mill, where  a,ii-js   compressed for   mine .and   mill  ���������uses.and   current is   distributed to all  motors operating   the mill machinery.  The .quantity     of .silver   produced  seems to have been   about 3,434,393 oz.  worth   .$1,021,033 a   decline from   the  production   of 1914 of  1G7,7S7 oz. and  $255,703.  The total amount of lead produced  iiin 1015 is estimated to be about 45,990-  372 lbs., .valued at $1,917,779. This  represents., .as compared'with the previous year, .u decrease ir: the quantity  of the metal produced of 4,034,076 Ml,  hut owing to .the higher market price  prevailing in 1015, the value of this  year'*! product is some $1<15,.'J22 greater!  than tJiat of the previous year.  The .amount of copper estimated to  have been produced during the year  1915 is the largest irr the history of  copper-mining in the. Province,  amounting as it does to 57,905,4SS lb.,  worth $10,000,008; tlie highest previous  production, made ia 1912, was 51,450,-  537 lb., valued at $S,40S,513.  The quantity of zinc shown to have  been produced in 1915 amounted to  12,S17,S0S lb., having a value of $1,554,  503. These figures are so very much  higher than have ever before occurred  in the zinc production of the Province  that comparisons are almost out of  the question.  The former highest recorded productions were in 1909, weerr S,500,000  lb. of zinc was produced, worth $400,-  000, and in 1914, when the production  was 7,SljG,467 lb. valued at $340,125. It  will be seen, therefore, that this year's  The. "Morning Post"-prints this letter from "Anglo-Saxon:"���������  "For many years I have lived in or  near Germany, and I have many  friends among the higher olTicers of  the German army. Shortly before the  war. one of these officers���������a general���������  assured me that England would never  adopt national service, and when 1  asked him why he was so confident,  he replied.���������  Lord Maldane told our Government  so.    He said   that no English Govern  ment, whether Conservative or Liberal,   would   survive   for  a   week   if  il  fathered such a principle.  "I also learnt from the sa me 'source  that Lord Ha Ida ne assured the .-Emperor-William that England would never  intervene in a European war against  Germany, but   would remain  neutral.  "If the   German   Govern ment   had  nut been misled���������if it had realized that  that this country would fulfil her obligation to Prance���������this war would nev  er have 'occurred.  "Sir Edward Goschen warned our  Government again and again of the  danger ahead; but the warning fell on  deaf eats. Was that obduracy induced  by Lord Haldane?'"  output has been, in value, about four-  times as great as that of former record years.  Of the total.-.-output. S,S22,SS0 lb.  came from theSlocan District 3,127,-  ,2091b. from Nelson Division, 1,370,000  ib. iVv-.> .'.-"iivvorth-.Division,-and 491,-  719. lb from East Kootenay.  In the Similkameen section the only  company credited with a coal production is the Princeton Coal and Land  Company at Princeton, which in J915,  mined 12,675 tons, a decrease from the  previous year of 6,800 tons.  While there was a slight revival of  iuterest in mining in parts of the Oso  yoos Division that had not seen mining activity for some time, production  was small in those parts. In Camp  Hedlej", on the contrary, the Hedley  Gold Mining Company continued energetically its gold-mining and milling  operations, with the usual profitable  results.  Five   men   were   employed   on   the  Horn Silver group of four claims, situated fifteen miles south of Iveremeos:  115 tons of   ore shipped   thence to the  Granby Company's  smelting-woiks at  Grand Forks  yielded  a total   of 23 ok.  of gold  and  7,779 oz, of   silver.    Two  adits have, been   driven. No.  1 105 feet  timl No 2 75 feet   lower, about 50 feet.  The ore ranges ingioss value up to $30  a ton. A light tramway was constructed 3,000   feet to the   wagon-road,  and  .over this ore to   the amount of 10 tons  itri hour-   is conveyed   at a   cost of 45c  a ton. This development is of interest  as being the first productive lode-mining done in   this part of  the Division.  On claims   in   Olalla   camp,   when-  copper ore, has   long   been   known to  occur, interest   was shown   in molybdenite   ore   also   found   there.    Some  properties were  examined and reported on, and work   was done for  part of  the year under a bond.  nnances to  Prisoners of War in Turkey  The Canadian Government has received tiotice'fi-0111 London tha.t the  Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs  has-been informed by the United  States Ambassador, that the Turkish  Government desire that in future remittances of money ii"t exceeding five  pounds from private, peixms for British Prisoners of War in Turkey should  be despatched lo the International Red  Cross Committee at Geneva for transmission to the Ottoman Red Crescent  Society lo Constantinople by whom  payment to ihe recipients will be  ofl'ected and a leceipt ii-liuiied to the  International Committee at Geneva.  Letters and parcels should also he-  sent lo the' International Red Cross  Committee at'Geneva for transmission. Such letters and par-eels are-  post free. Money should be remitted,  by International Money Order which-  can be obtained at any Post Office and  which should be made payable to the  International Red Cm.-s Committee at  Genenva and sent on with full name,  nuiiiber and Regiment of the Prisoner  of War to whom the money is to he  paid.  Information has also been received  from the United Sr.-t 1 i-s Ambassador  that prisoners of war in Turkey are-  now allowed to write only one letter  a week limited to Tour lines and that  this regulation applies also to letters  addressed to them. Letters of greater  length will  not he delivered.  Aftftiiul Hospital Meeting  Monday evening occurred the annual  meeting of the Hedley General Hopi-  tal Society.  The   attendance    was small and the  most important item   of   business was  .the election of officers and receiving of :���������  reports. '  The following directors were elected  for the ensuing year: G. P. Jones. R.  S. Collin, G. I-L Sprrtile. C. P. Dal ton;  O. A. -Hammer, Norman Dewar,'(the  latter two .representing the Miners  Union) and F. H. French.  ' The treasurer's report aiid financial  statement were received and approved.  S. L. Smith was elected auditor.  The meeting voiced a vote of thanks  to Treasurer Collin, ''Auditor Smith  and Secretary.!'. 11.  French.  At the next meeting of directors the  Secretary for the year- will bo appointed and will undoubtedly be F. H.  French.  We hope lo have the treasurer's  report for publication in next week's  issue.  The city fathers of our big neighbor, Trail, believe in preparedness as  for fire and have made arrangements  for increased facilities for the protection of the city against the great  destroyer.  C. J. Carlson came in from Greenwood Tuesday and will find employment at the Nickel Plate.  One of the   strangest   incidents of a  tour of the coast  towns by  Major Ha-  gar, of the   102nd   Battalion,   was   to  meet a man,   known to him   as "Scotty," who had not heard of the war until a week ago.  It appears that he had  been in the wilds  of British  Columbia  engaged in trapping.    Having gather-  ad together a respectable lot of furs he  came   away   from    his    forest   home  shortly   before the recruiting   officers  arrived.    To  Captain    Hagar and   his  associates he admitted that he had not  known that   the greatest   nations   of  the world were at grips and that nothing would   please him    more than   to  take a hand in  the game i'or the cause  of the Empire. He enlisted forthwith,  passing     the     medical     examination  readily.    All he   wanted  was   to   get  through his training as a soldier at the  earliest   possible   moment and   get to  the front to take  an active part in the  fighting. THE HEDLKY GAZIOTTE.

Rossland's Bye-Election  The Rossland Miner recently  issued an appeal to the voters  of that district for their support  to Hon Lome Campbell in the  bye-election which takes place  on the 26th of this   month.  The appeal is a strong one  setting forth as it does the benefit to be derived by the Rossland camp, tlie mining industry  generally, and the Province.  In this appeal the viewpoint  of the Opposition is discussed  in a plain, out spoken businesslike way. The Miner stands itself for the advancement of the  mining industry every day of  the year in what is assur edly  the greatest camp in the province. It asks its readers and  friends to support Mr. Campbell  because he will support Rossland as well as every other  reputable camp or prospect in  the province.  As to the Liberal candidate,  Mayor Wilson the Gazette  thinks he is too small and inefficient to represent Rossland or  any other camp of consequence  a-nd his appearance at this time  is but an effort of a politician  to profit by the circumstrance  of a bye-election, and mount to  The eagerness that wounded  Canadian soldiers display to  get back to tne firing line is the  strongest kind of appeal to the  physically fit young men of  Canada who have not yet enlisted to fill the vacancies in the  ranks. Men who have suffered  terrible "wounds and sickness do  not want to be invalided home;  they want to do another "bit'-j  for their country. But they  should not have to go back as  long as there are young men at  home who are able to take  their places.���������The Daily News  PRESBYTERIAN  CHURCH  Set-vices   every   alternate  Sunday   at  7..-30 p.tn-  Pastor, R.

When the   Canadian   Mining Institute meets in Ottawa at the beginning  of the month   there will be   in session  some of the most noted  and scientific  mining  men of   the Dominion.    They  will   discuss   mining   problems   from  every standpoint   and withrint   doubt  arrive at  some valuable   conclusions.  Mr. G. P.

Purcell, of   Rossland,   represent  our own province on the council.   Owing   to some    contemplated   improvements to the plant here Mr. Jones will  not   be able   to be present   but acting  with some   other   influential   mining  men will   present some   practical suggestions to the session of the Institute.  Among them will be the. recommendation   for   the   construction   of a   zinc  smelter   somewhere in this   province.  The importance of such a recommendation   should   not   be  underrated   and  with the support of Hon. Lome Gamp-  bell, Minister of Mines for B. C. ought  to be a possibility  for the near future.  The  location, of   course,'   would   be a  matter calling for deep consideration,  and is a   question    that   in   any   case  would not be decided by the Institute.  It is a.matter   of congratulation ' that  our B. C. representatives  on the council of the   Institute are  practical miners and can  approach that   body with  a suggestion of this  character, aiming  to exert every   influence for   the procuring of   this .much needed   industry  for this province.

He is  well known in Hedley, having resided  here for some time before, leaving a  few inonths back for the Siinitoi-ium  to begin the fight-against the dreaded  consumption. The sympathy of the  community goes out to the bereaved  family.

It made  its-  presence felt by the most indisputable  tremors, lasting several seconds.    The  miners   down   in   the   bowels   of   tho  Dickson   Incline   in the   Nickel   plate  mine were   aware of the   visitation at  identically the   same time as the store  keepers and pedestrians down in Hedley.    At first   there    were   numerous  conjectures as to   the cause, but sifted  down the consensus of opinion is that  it was a pure   and simple earthquake.  Might as well   be out of the   world as  out of   the   fashion   and the   fashion  these   days   is    Earthquakes.    Every  man in Hedley holds his head high today, havo we not had  an earthquake. ?  There are worse things.    Knslo is having a shaking and a quaking time with  measles.

It was a beautiful evening and Ole,  who bad screwed up courage to take  Mary for a ride, was carried away by  the magic of the night.  "Mary," he asked, "will you marry  me?"

Don't you think that it makes tne  ashamed of my German birth when to  their distorted military minds such  outrageous- -things.are deemed necessary ? And don't you know the good  people of Germany deplore the act as-  much as I, but what caii they do with  tlie iron hand at their thio'ats and a  war mad Kaiser prodding theiir -on ?  "Miss Cavell 'nursed German soldiers  as. well as Belgians and English/and  performed her duties as-head nurse in  the hospital**, iihpai lially. Why did  not the stein Germans, depose her-and  send her about her business when they  took Bru-sels?

It is .something no one can condone  and I dem'tsee how the Germans, with  all their love of fatherland, can, away  down in their hearts, sanction any  such action, or expect to win the great  struggle they are engaged in by such  outrages.  "I hale to think about it, much lo.--s  talk about it, and it makes me ashamed of my people, over there who havo  gone war mad, and whose sense of  1 ight and wrong is strangely terribly  distoi ti'd. Had Miss Cavell been a  German and had done such things she  would have been a heroine. Because  !-he was English she was shot like a  mad dug.
