PRINCETON  B.C.  The Vancouver< Province prints  the following regarding operations at  Franklin camp: , j  "Considerable mining activity in  the Franklin camp on the north fork  of.the Kettle river is reported by A.  J. Fee, of Vancouver, who is in the  camp-looking after-the work on the,  Maple Leiaf group of claims, owned hy  ���������himself and his brother, J. B. Fee, of-  Vancouver.  "Mr. Fee says that the Union mine,  on Avhich the'envner, Lewis Johnson,-  and his friends started work last summer, has uncovered a high grado copper ore, and that shipments are daily  made.frorn the Union.mine. Over 10(1  horses are engaged on the ore lead.and'  in shipping ore-to Lynch creek, a distance of 20 miles, from Avhence it is  taken by the Kettle Valley railway.to,'  .the'Granby smelter. Some samples,'  from the stope of the Union mine'  which A. J. Fee subjected to an as-!  say ran from $300 'to $500 per ton,;  the gold values -being heavy. ���������Mr.i  Johnson and his associates set to Avork;  to develop the mine out of its own!  earnings, rather than waste time inj  endeavoring:to interest capital for ex-j  tensive development. The Fee brothers'  who h.-iA-eowned the Maple Leaf group,  fe>r the past -ten years, are contemplating work on their oavii property,  wliich directly adjoins the Union;  claims.  '���������As a -result of the ruining'- activity at the Franklin camp, the C.P.R. is  said to.be considering building a light  line to the camp. At present the ore,  has to be hauled by team a distance of:  twenty miles to a shipping point."  Belfast, July 18.���������'Despite the seizure'  of two hunched rifles from a furniture,  van that .happened-to-';be caught  by  .customs  officers  in   Londonderry on  "Wednesday,-Ulster-men  aro chuckling:  Up their sleeves today; for in place  of'  the rifles held -by it-he* excise -officers!  are-nine of  the neAvest Colt automatics, landed near here and safely treiiis-  .ported by motor to Londonderry,  150  ���������miles oif.    In addition to this there are.  evidences in the,military orders issued  to. Ulster commanders'-that the volunteer force is ready Avith a-new   brancli  ���������up-to-date   artillery'"   Ulster's mili-'  tary  plan of campaign   will  contain,  jnany surprises.    A hint .-is   to one  of.  ���������them-is-contained in .the -official-order  describing the distinguishing   marks''  for the uniforms of the' artillery regiment and engineer's corps.  HEAVY   CtU>-S  It has been riimore'd'repeatedly that  heavy guns have heen'jicqiiired for the'  .volunteer force.' The* artillery -regiment Avill not use Maxims and other'  quick-firing guns, many of which Avere'  landed here late Monday night, for  these light guns have already heen distributed among the; infantry hat-,  talions. Many people-believe that mod-'  eru field guns will make their appear-'  ance when the volunteer force takes  the field. There aie enough experienced gunners -to man several bat-j  teries. The majority of the membeis.  of the royal garrison artillery���������County!  Antrim special reserve, are members of  the volunteer force. < Some of them  have just finished their annual training with heavy guns on the County'  Antrim coast. These men are ready to  take their places when the time comes.'  ���������May  Now   -Seize  .and- Condemn Any  Infected Fruit on -Display in  the .Province  New regulations overpowering the  provinc*iiil:fruit inspector :to .seize all  infected-fruit, .-no matter where- it is  on display, even though it has pre.vi-  ouly been passed by the inspectors,  have been made by the provincial  board of horticulture \vhie:h .met in  Victoria last week. This--is the -most  .drastic ste*p yet taken .in the campaign of the board against the iin-  . porta tion of fruit buffering from any  form of plant or insect disease. Oases  have been reported where evidence of  infection -were not apparent at the  time* of inspection, but the shipments  on being opened up on the fruit  stands a few days later showed that  infection had ripened. These shipments will no longer be protected by:  the inspectors certificate, and will be  open for inspection and seizure as if  they had neArer been previously inspected and passed.  Another regulation aimed .-it stamping out the risk of infection from  codling mpth calls for the inspection  of all fruit cars that enter Canada  from any point in the United States.  These regulations under the powers  granted by Sir John Thompson when  he introduced the Horticultural Act  into the Legislature over twenty yeai s  ago. .acquire the.force of statute law  after, being gazetted in the Official  Gazette.  Completion of Grand Trunk Pacific .and  Pacific Great Eastern Will.Open  up Large Tract of Agricultural .and Mineral  Land  Attorney-General Bowser says that  the construction of the Grand  Trunk Pacific will change the map of  British Columbia so far as its agricultural and numeral .development- is  concerned. Mr. Ross, Minister of  Lands, says that the building of the  Grand Trunk Pacific and Pacific Great  Eastern avi'11 make available for agricultural and general development an  area double that AA'hich is now eivail-  able. To this may be added the great  extent of valuable country which the  Canadian Northern Pacific will render  accessible*. This is a magnificent country of ours, which stands ready for the  entei prise of energetic people.  ���������'If you have funds to invest, prepare  to invest them now."' ������������������You cannot,  in a Province like ours, open more than  2,000 .riiili*s of hoav railway, through  what is for the most part a neAV land,  without giving prosperity everywhere  within its holders a tremendous impetus.  ARRANGE FOR REDISTRIBUTION  Justices Macdonald   and   Morrison Appointed by Government to Arrange  a Basis for the Measure  To Keep "Blftter^Cool  When ice is not available, put  enough butter .for a meal in a small,  dish, and set it in a larger one con-.  _taining a little water. Turn .-i porous  clay Hower-poc over-it and this will  cause evaporation of the. water, in a.  way that 'will keep-the air inside the:  pot very cool. If the pot is Avrapped;  iiuwet cloth,-the^corners of which.are  left touching water in outer dish, the  arrangement is almost as good as an  ice-chest.

V. it E. is assured and  a joint station is also certain.  It is something more than a rumor  that the British Columbia Copper  company Avill erect a smelter in the  Princeton district. Although the plans  of the company are subject to change  there is every indication that a large  ore treatment plant Avill soon be started in /construction.  It is believed-that a deal will shortly  be closed with E. F. Voigt for Voigt's  camp embracing some 52 mineral'  claims. -The.offer made., him is in excess of any previous one.  Confidence in the futiuo.of Princeton and of the whole Similkameen has  been -noticeably resuscitated during  the past -few'weeks,-owing to railway  construction and mining deals.  T. J. Corwin, placer mining operator, is here and..will begin testing his  placer .leases prior to actual mining.  Incidentally, .tAvo bottles containing  about five pounds of nugget gold Avere  recently shown your correspondent by  a.local dealer in gold and platinum.  Victoria, B. 0., July 19th.���������The government has appointed Mr. Justice  Macdonald and Mr. .lustice Morrison  of the supreme com t bench a royal  commission to repent on a basis of redistribution from Avhich a measure  Avill be framed feu piesentation to the  legislation at its next session.  The scope of the commission is wide.  It will study the whole province in respect to areas of population and neAv  settlements and work out a basis of  equitable representation.  Speaking of redistribution Sir Richard McBride says it has been the custom of most legislative bodies in Canada to place the matter of' arranging  a redistribution measure in the hands  of ii committee of the house on which  -would sit members .representative of  the different parties. The composition  of the legislature in British Columbia  precludes an arrangement of this kind.  The government has therefore decided  to -follow a policy -which-has .-largely  obtained in England and in several.instances in Ontario.  The last occasion when a redistribution measure avjis passes in the province -was in 1907, Avhen the membership was increased from 38 to 42.

This decision has caused much discussion among trading circles in the  West as a. big trade is-transacted with  Belfast both in banking and commercially. Carrick-on-Shannon is the capital of Lei trim, in AA'hich county every  parish has its company of volunteers.  This ultimatun to Ulster is being taken  up in nearly every toAvn in Leitrum  and commercial travellers from the  North are already finding it diffiult at  present to secure orders.  'Latest returns from Mantioba give  Premier Roblin a marjority of 'four,  as the result of-the elections held there  last-Friday. Premier Roblin's marjority in Dugerin, Avbicli was ,45(5 at the  last election, AA-as cut doAvn to 127.  Four out ot the six Winnipeg seats  went Liberal.  This re?sult Avas not entirely unlocked for by old-time Conservatives .in  touch Avith political affairs in Manitoba.  Strong as Premier Roblin has been,  and popular as he still is, yet, there  Ave re so'tnany things, even A.'ithin the  ranks of his own party, against which  he hod to fight, that some even went  so far as to doubt his ability to carry  Avith a large enough majority to e:on-  trol the next parliament.  GENERAL NEWS  Belching out great columns of smoke  covering the sea Avith sulphur dust and  pumice, the volcanoes along the  Alaskan shore from Seward to the  Aleutian Islands are in a state of  eruptian.  For the first time  in Canadian immigration  history it is  believed  that  this year, emigration from Canada will  be greater than the immigration  into  the Dominion.    HoAvever, the emigration from the Dominion Avill not be of  Canadians,   but of Ruthenians,   Bulgarians,   -Polanders    and    what   are  knoAvn as "foreigners'*.     During  the  past couple of months there has been  a big emigration  of this unskilled labor which ebs and flows  any way and  the immigration officieils believe that  the next few months will see an even  bigger emigration of this class.

The  sui-iender  i*   really   to C-arranza

directly  or   in   person.       Madero   did
that.     Ex-presidents   of   Mexico   live

pres-idrnf   than   late   president.      C'ai-

.     Huerta.. has  made a long and stubborn resistance for ei chief who had to
fight  the.  Constitutionalists  at  home
''���.'and the   United States alitoad.    Since
last  .March   President  WoocIi-oav Wilson   has been   trying   to  dispose him.
He.   .recalled,   his    ambassador,    gave
Huerta  notice  to ijuit,   permitted the
insurgents to obtain arms and supplies
in the. "United States,   attacked  the financial  credit of,Mexico,  sent fleets
to  Mexican ports and.finally invaded
the. country and raptured the principal
sea-port. Huerta had few soldiers who
AA'.ouid  fight,  no effective, military or-
ginization,   no money,   no credit,  iind
no character.
The assassination' of'Madero Avhen
he was a state prisoner under military
guard is a lasting disgrace to Huerta
and will deprive him of the sympathy
which he might othei'Avise rece-iA'e in
his misfortunes. Somewhere in Europe
he will find a home and no doubt a
goodly fortune sent ahead. For a
country may ha.ve little money for
public purposes, and still spare.* enough
to make one man rich.
There is nothing in the record of
Carranza which suggests that he will
lie able, to give peace and security of
life and property to Mexico. Villa
might rule by martial law. He is at
least a man of might and resource.
But while he might, so far, ho a sue-
t'cssor to I.hiiz lie is not nearly so enlightened a man. Daiz avhs a. despot,

Whether you are running"
a Department Store or the
Smallest Business there is
something you have to tell

PlpiilPPfji^  ietfcer than Ringing  Door-bells  A PIANO manufacturer recently made a house-  **��������� 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 fr'O out of every 100 readers of a newspaper  may ?be possible buyers of his goods.  So he refused to advertise, and went -a-can^ssing  ������������������inviting people to come to iris piano recitals.  Then -he wondered why they didnlt 'come.  This is why:  He Wcwn'i! 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 thehouse was seldom  6een; the man of the house, never.  Now, if the piano maker had placed an  a<L 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���������rand 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.
