The Gazette is fortunate to lie able  to present the following report from  the pen of E. Jacobs, of Victoria, one  of the most experienced and authentic  writers on mining affairs in Canada."  The following information has been  taken from the annual repot t of the  Canada Copper Corporation, Ltd., and  its operating company, the Biitish  Columbia Copper Co., Ltd., both of  New Ym-k City, for the year 1915:  Exerpt from the report of the president of the Canada Copper Corporation.  '���������The exhaustion of the ore deposits  adjacent to Gicenwood, Boundary district, was foreseen some years ago  when options wore secured on the properties at Copper Mountain, Similkameen, and satisfactory progress has  since been made in developing ore at  the latter. As of December 31, 191-1,  there had been disclosed 6,200,000  tons of reasonably * assured and probable ore averaging 1.82 per cent, cupper and in addition to this, some 750,-  000 tons of 1.5*1 per cent, copper ore.  "As of December 31, 1915, it is estimated that there ate 9,075,000 tons of  reasonably assured ore anil 2,000,000  tons of probable ore of on average  grade of 1.75 per cent, copper and 20c  a ton recoverable value in gold and  and silver, the average value of both  classes of ore being the same. It will  there for be seen that the estimate for  assured and probable ore reserves has  been increased approximately 60 per  cent, within the year.  "In connection with the program  for installing the proposed concentrating plant at Copper Mountain, it has  been decided to proceed forthwith with  an underground delopment campaign  which will not only serve to .confirm  the diamond drilling already done but  will also be of a permananent character  looking to the eventual extraction of  the ores. A tunnel will be started of  sufficient size to allow of handling  through it a large tonnage of oie; it  will lie driven at an elevation which  will serve the upper horizon of ore.  The shaft on the Sunset claim will be  deepened sufficiently, to connect with  this tunnel, and, in addition, drifts and  crosscuts will be run    to block out the  ore.   "Steps   have     already   been   taken  looking to the   puiehasenf   the necessary equipment to   proceed with   this  work, and it is expected  that the tun  nel, which will  approximately 2000 ft.  in length, will   be   completed   in less  than six months from date of commencement; it   will be   started as   soon as  the   equipment; can   lie installed.   To  cover the expense   of   this   work, at-  rangeinents have been concluded with  bankers, whereby the   sum of $400,000  is available for the purpose, this money  having been   borrowed by the Canada  Copper   Corporation   for a period   of  two years, bearing Cper cent, interest.  In order that financial   arrangements  could be made, it became necessary to  retire, as far as possible, the company's  ���������outstanding debentures, and   upward  of 87A per cent, of the $600,000 original  issue has thus far been   converted into  stock under the plan as set forth in the  circular to debenture holders   bearing  date November 16 1915."  The report of the general manager  of the operating company includes  particulars, as follows:  The mines and smelting plant were  inoperative during the Iirst six months  of the year. In June, preparation was  made to partially resume   mining and  .smelting operations. On July 2(5, 1915,  one furnace was blown in. Thence lithe end i>f the year bulb mining and  smell ing were carried on r-nnliiiMou->l\.  Mother Lode Mine Greenwood li. C  work preparatory to resumption of  mining was commenced on June 15.  Ore shipments-to end of year totalled  105,085 tons, dry weight. Average  grade of ore was: Gold 0.037 oz. and  silver 0.21 oz. a ton, and copper 0.87-J6  per cent.  A rock fall cut oft" the ore supply  from the quarry; most of the ore ship-  ped was stoped underground from territory south of the quaily. Ore was  brought up to a commercial grade by-  hand sorting.  Development Work done comprised  drifting and crosseutting 433 ft. and  raising 666 ft., and- diamond drilling  totalled 711 ft. No new orebodies were  found; drilling-is being continued with  the hope of finding new shoots of ore.  Operating expenses compare favorably with those of 1914. The cost of  new constuction, also the expense of  putting the mine in shape for production, has been charged to operating  expense, bringing cost up to $0.8437  pi-i ton f. o. b. railway cars at the  mine. Tho freight to the smelting  works was $0.1215 a. ton, making a  total of $0.9GS2 per ton of ore delivered  at the smeltery.  The quanity of ore remained in the  Mother Lode mine is difficult to eilcu-  late; it amounts to possibly 50,000 tons.  With present high price for copper,  50.000 tons could be "sorted out from  mixed ore and waste in the quarry.  The total ore reserve, under present  conditions, is therefore 100,000 tons.  This means rather more than five  months'operation unless new ore, .���������it-  present unknown; shall be discovered,  Lone Star Mine, Washington,���������Ore  shipped from this property in 1915  amounted to 6510 tons, dry weight; it  averaged gold 0.032 oz. and silver 0.193  07,. a ton, and copper 2.60 per cent.  Development work consisted of 697 ft.  of drifting and raising.'. A sorting bell  was put iii; of the material passed over  this belt, 14 per cent was rejected as  waste. Available and'probable 01 e is  estimated at 170.000 tons, with a good  prospect of this reserve being increased by development work. The average  copper tenor of the ore ' in reserve is  1.60 per cent.  Napoleon Mine, Washington,���������No  ore was shipped in 1915 from this mine,  but preparations were made in December t.o put it in shape for early operations, the need for extra sulphide ni\?  at the smeltery at Greenwood having  arisen.  Queen Victoria   Mine, Near Nelson,  ���������This mine was   leased; lessees shipped to Greenwood   in the latter part of  year 754   tons dry weight,   of ore that  averaged   0.0037 oz.   gold and  0.77 oz.  silver a ton, and  2.28 per cent copper.  Emma Mine Near Eholt, B. C.���������This  mine has   been  idle since   destruction  by fire in February, 1912, of head fr.anie.  and hoisting plant. The ore not being  suitable for smelting at Greenwood, it  was  decided   to sell the   mine   which  was unwatered   for examination   purposes.    (The   president   reported  sale  early in 1916 for $55,000.  Smelting at Greenwood,���������Supply of  ore was insufficient only for operation  of one blast furnace, which was run  158 furnace days. Total quantity of  ore smelted was 122,514 tons, dry  weight, of which 115,140 tons was ore  from company's mines and 7374 tons  customs ores. Actual amount of ore  smelted per day was 775.4 tons, which  work was performed by an average of  49.2 men per day at an average wage  of $3,18 per day. There was produced  I860 tons   of matte   averaging   48 per  cent copper The output of metals  was : Copper (fine) 1,734,385 lb., silver  23,003 oz.. gold 5417 oz.  Copper Mountain, Siniilkaineeii,--  V/ork at this property consisted piin-  cipally of diamond-drilling and trenching. Extensive topographical surveys  were made, with a view to outlining  installation of surface equipment, etc,  Commercial ore was found at greater  depth than heretofore, drills having  penetrated bodies of such ore at 900 ft.  below the collar of the shaft of Sunset.  mine. The ore as developed to date is  divided into two groups. One is the  main ore occurrence, found along the  strike of a system of intrusive dikes,  principally on the Sunset, Vancouver,  and Gardner claims while the other  comprises ore bodies found on one side  or other of the principal ore zone.  Future developments may establish a  connection between these ore bodies.  (Note���������See above for estimate of quantity of oie.  Conclusion���������Attention is called to  the fact that the profits from the  Greenwood smelting plant for the five  months of operations are laigely due  to the extraordinary high price of copper on account of the rapid depletion  of the ore reserves in the company's  mines in Greenwood district, the  period of smelting activity there will  be limited, unless a profitable custom-  ore business shall be developed or new  orebodies be found. The high price of  metals has stimulated the. mining in-  dui-try, and it is not unlikely the market for customs ores will further improve during the   ensuing year.  Accounts���������The   B.   C.

The beautiful little town  nestling in the gulch of Twenty-Mile Creek, basking in the  sunshine of the Similkameen,  has before it a wonderful future of activity and enterprise.  Although feeling the stress  of war times as much as any  merchants anywhere in the  Province of B. C, Hedloy's  business men are as enterprising and optimistic as any in  this province of opportunities  and big projects.  We desire to express our  thanks and appreciation to  them and to our readers and  friends ever ywhere for their  enthusiastic support during  the months in which it has  been our pleasure to steer the  destinies of the Hedley Gazette. And when this world  war will have become a matter of history, we hope to return to Hedley and mingle  again with her people and resume again some form of  commercial activity within  the sound of that busy enterprise, the center of Hedley's  attractions, the Daly Reduction Works.

Recruits Wanted Tor  First Canadian Pioneers  This regiment is now in Prance having moved across at the latter end of  Fobi nary, and is engaged in construction work. Before leaving England  tlie regiment received a great supply  of tools and equipment for railway  and other work, and though fully  trained and equipped ai an Infantry  Battalion it will be employed except  on emergency, solely as a battalion of  workmen. All descriptions of trades  and occupations are represented in this  Pioneer Battalion but those mostly in  request are carpenters, linesmen, railway construction men, miners, loggers  and the like. The general handy man  is also a very useful member of the  corps.  Towards the end wf January recruit]  ing for a reinforcing draft of three  officers and one. hundred men was  started, the recruits however were not  assembled until the middle of February and on the oth. March they left  Victoria, en route for England where  by this time they should have arrived,  that is, the draft is in England within  two months of starting recruiting,  A second draft* of similar- strength  was authorized and recruiting for this  has been so satisfactory that the draft  is now up to strength and will be  really to embark within a couple of  weeks.  A thiid draft is now starling and if  recruits for this offer as readily as for  the. first two drafts it is expected that  this third reinforcement will be ready  to leave for England by the middle of  May.  Men who wish to get away with the  least possible delay and see a little of  France before the suinnier is well  through cannot do better than join the  reinforcing draft-now being assembled  at the Old Drill Hall, Menzies St., Victoria, where recruits can apply in person. Those, not in A-Mctm-ia can apply  by letter and recruits passed medically fit and approved will have their  transportation sent them to enable  them to join without expense.

Labour   ��������� ���������; ' is limited���������all the more reason to do more than ever  before. Grow food for the men who are fighting for you. The Allies need all the food that  you can produce. Every little helps. You are responsible for your own work. If you  cannot produce as much as you would like, produce all you can. Work with the right  spirit. Put fighting energy into your effort and produce now when it counts. The more  you produce the more you can save.    Producing and saving are war-service.  In war-time do not waste time and energy on unimportant and unprofitable work. Economize labour.  Put' off unproductive work till after the war, and, if  possible, help in producing something needed now. Let us not waste labour. Canada  needs it all. If possible help to feed the Allies. Make your backyard a productive garden.  Cultivate it with a will.    Make your labour count for as much as possible.  Do Not Waste Materials  There should be no waste in war-time.

The beautifying of the grounds is being  looked after by tlie Women's  Institute.  Mr. and Mrs. Brown of Ashland, Oregon arrived by auto  last week and will spend the  summer in Olalla.    Mr. Brown  The following, sent to ns hya friend,  appeared in the telegraph, of Hong  Kong,'China, on Tuesday, March 21st.  The Geiman educational system has  concealed in it a poison which warps  the reasoning ability of all win? come  under its influence; its victims believe  that evil deeds can produce or force  good results. One such man "in other  matters s*ine," when the Lusitania. incident was referred to, expressed the  hope that all the belligerents would  make the war as "frightful" as possible. This man was not a German,  but had received part of his education  in Germany. He seemed to think that  the more the nations and individuals  in Europe allowed themselves to be  controlled by unscrupulousness, hatred and brutality, the sooner war  would be done away with, and was  qnite oblivious to the fact that these  very qualities are themselves the  cause of belligerency and will continue  to incite to war so long as they are indulged in.  Sane people naturally expect evil  thinking to produce and maintain evil  conditions, and look for good only as  the result of good. An honest man,  even if confronted with evidence  which seemed to prove that evil was  the quickest and most effective means  of accomplishing good, would not  therefore resort to evil practices, but  would bend all his energies to oppose  such an illogical contention, and would  prefer to stand by principle, though it  entailed the surrender of every hope  of material gain, rather than, under  the banner   of evil methods,  to reap a  disgraceful and unpalatable success at  the sacrifice of all a man holds dear���������  his integrity and faith in right.  The doctrine that the end .justifies  the means is held by a varying percentage of people in all countries; the  more unenlightened "the nation, the  'more universally accepted is the doc  trine. But it is strange to find in Germany, which has in ail e so much progress along many lines in these latter  years, an almost unanimous acceptance of this fallacy. In her educators,  .the men who have had the ear of the  public through the press and the pulpit, and those who have had*the training of the young in the schools, we  must look for the cause of this state  of mind. High moral teaching by  men.of lofly ideals bears fruit in a  noble citizenship which values its own  and its national honornbove the petty  advantages of worldly success, of  pride, or power. Opposite teaching  bears opposite fruit.  There has been a war party in Germany for many years, a party which  has had the upper hand, which prepared guns and ammunition, and  trained soldiers. But these three factors alone are not sufflcent to enable a  few men to lead a mition into war;  something more is needed, and the  present non-moral state of the German  mind shows that the war party was  also active in preparing and moulding public thought to suit its purposes.  A nation which has produced and  accepted a Martin Luther, does not  naturally embrace the doctrine that  if ihe end seems desirable, any means  are justifiable in obtaining it; nothing  but the subtle suggestions of designing educators continued for a number  of years could possibly accomplish  such a result. ;.'  With this object lesson before them,  it behoves, the citizens,of all countries  tp see that the teaching in their  schools is pure. A nation's greatest  enemy is the corruption within its own  borders;   its   surest    safeguard   high-  minded, truth loving educators."  A. F. F.  Another Nebula Coming  The latest from the skies is that there  is a big nebula coming in the direction  of the earth ac the rate of one hundred  miles a second. If that nebula strikes  us it will be like a ton of coal falling  on a gnat. ,It will over-wehri us and  annihilate us*. Its speed is more than  three billion miles a year.  One might think at that rate it  might soon reach us but it never will.  It will veer off into endless space long  before it would strike the earth. But  think of the distance and its coming  one hundred miles a second and never  getting here, it is so far off. This fact  gives one an idea of the bigness of the  universe and the littleness of the earth,  and,to lead one in the ways of modesty  and simplicity, where selfishness and  unkindnessare never tolerated and the  rule of purity, honor and duty becomes  the law of gravitation.���������Ohio State  Journal.
