He   is getting  into   the thick   of the experience   and  has .seemingly lost most of the respect  he formerly hud for Canadian Officers  .-ind the   training he   received at Vernon, however, he has found himself in  added regard for  his new trainers and  English   institutions    and   is   feeling  extra ������������������fit."  He says among other things;  ��������� ���������  I received your wi-lcoim-,'letter  this  morning while on guard, (which means  21 hours without sleep.) They will not  give us   much   rest   while  we are on  duty.    I had a letter  from Mr. Dalton  the lust time I was on guard at Brain-  shott.    You see   when I am   on guard  T   get a   letter from   Hedley,   it   just  cheers   me up when   one comes   from  the old town, it  brings the past to the  present day.  "Well, Mrs. Hobei'tsiiii, we have  moved to another camp since I last  wrote to you. This camp is a very  large <ine, there are about 95,000 Imperial troops here, some camp.  There are   the flying corps   and eye  list corps and two   battalions of artillery here.    We have   the modern   cannons   and   everything is   fine, it   is a  great deal better than it was at Bram-  sbot**-, the quarters and food are better  and   they   are   going   to put   ns   to a  strong task,   that  means   some   hard  tin in ing.

Well, we are all  feeling fine just now,  and if they   let us stay in   this  camp  a month we will be  ready for the Germans.  We have some boxing gloves and  the boys say I am too rough. Windy  Bill said T hit to hard so he quit after  he I bought he had put it over on Bob.  He said he would box Boh hut not me.  Windy has put himself up for a hard  man since he came over to England.  Well 1 have the dope to cool him down  when he goes too far with any of the  smaller boys.  Bobby sure looks fine and he is some  fatter, he is sure getting every form of  training here to make him a man.  T am glad you got a letter from Mrs.  Meher. I wanted her to go to Hedley  and before I left she said she would,  but up to my letter she is still in Vernon.  Well, when I was in London 1 took  in all the sights, going to the baths  every morning and having a good  swim. That is what puts one in good  shape. T have cut out the booze, that  stuff dout bother me any more." I have  a future and I am going to look to it.  W*e get the war news here every  morning, and it is still going strong.  Our next, move will be to Aldershott,  I think in about a month. We are  here for musketry practice and extended order* drill, charging dummy  tienehes. and I believe it is going to be  hard work. We are now on extended  order drill in a large forest, through,  water grass, brush and everything  that makes it bad. They are going to  put up barb wire entanglements so  that we will be next to them when we  go to the ft ont and we will have a lot  of bomb drill here also.

E  to  Ml  The Princeton Coal and Land Co.  last yenr mined 32(17") tons ofeoal, a  decrease of fi.SOO bons from the previous year.  In 1915 the value of the copper output of B. ('. was practically 50% of  that of the gross metalliferous production of the province.  The Crows Ne.-t Pass Con I Co. is  again lined up as a dividend-paj-er.  The quarterly dividend this time  amounted to over $93,000. It is the  first since 1911.  Cost of producing copper- in the  mines of North America may be taken  at about 11 cents per pound of refined  metal, including the expense of development. The cosV ranges from 7 to 20  cents.  Rossland leads all British Columbia  ^districts in the production of lode gold  ���������in fact pioduees00 percent of the  lode gold of the province. The Center  Stm* mine is working at a depth of  2.-300 feet, and the Le Roi 1800 feet.  Gold Production of India in 1915  totaled 002,309 oz., the largest since  1905, and compared with (192,000 oz. in  11914, 589,353 oz. in '913. 58*1,838 oz. in  1912, and 073,525 oz in 1911. Most of  the yield is from the Kolar field of the  State of Mvsoi'e.  The Nelson hoard of trade has adopted the following 1 esolution and for  warded it to R. F. Green, M. P., at  Ottawa: The proposed tax on profit--5  of over 7 per centum is causing grave  fears that mining investments here  will receive a serious set back. We  desire to pay a fair share of the war  expenses, but mining presents difficulties not found in other industries in  deciding where profits really begin,  and we urge a most careful consideration and a consultation with practical  mining men before a final decision is  made."  During the  year 1915 74,285 tons   of  ore from the   Nickel Plate   mine  was  treated   at' the    company's   40-stamp  mill- and   cyanide    plant   at   Hedley  Siinilkaiueen,  yielding 41,857.15 oz. of  gold, valued at $865,187,25, or an average of $11.05 a ton.    The  mining costs  were $1.63; development,  $0.19; treatment   ( crushing,   concentration,  and  cyaniding   $2.40; general.   $1.01;   or 11  total cost of $5.83 a ton.    The extraction was 92 per cent.    The total profit  including  revenue   obtained from   all  sources, was $392,552.84, or $5.28 a ton.  It is contemplated   in the near   future  to effect a change in   the ore-dressing  practice by discarding   concentration,  and adopting   an  all-sliming cyanida-  tion system.���������Monthly Bulletin of the  Canadian Mining  Institute for March,  1910.  done right.

March 15���������Not since  the days when Joe Martin was  Premier of British Columbia  have.there been more stirring  scenes in the house than took  place yesterday in an endeavor  to block legislation designed to  amend the Constitution.  Opposition members forced  the House to sit until 20 minutes after midnight.  Today the Liberals claim that  it is possible that Parliament  has been automatically dissolved.  Almost every hour of the day  was one of excitement at the  Parliament buildings. There  were frequent conferences between  the Premier and the leader of the Opposition, and at one time it appeared  that an arrangement would be made,  but the Opposition demand became so  oppressive that Premier Bowser with  drew his terms and defied the Liberals  to do their woisl.  The situation arose in this way:  Four years ago on Feb. 27th, 1912, tin  order in council was passed for a general election, making' the writs returnable on or before June 1st of that  year. Under the Constitution act the  House sits for four years from the return of tin: wrrif, uibuougti in future  the legislature will sit for five. It appears that the writ will return on  March 30th and yesterday morning  Premier Bowser discovered that the  Chilliwack writ was returned on  March 15th, the election there being  by acclamation.  .Although believing that the House  could sit until June 1st, 1916 he  brought in a bill to put the matter beyond doubt. He had several conferences with the Liberals during the  day offering to drop continuous legislation such as the "P. G. E. Aid Bill,  Shipping Bill, Workmen's Compensation, Agricultural Aid and other such  measures they might name if they  would agree to another supply and to  make it definite that Parliament  could exist until next June. He predicts an early election, the Government going to the country on the  bills which would be dropped for the  present.it being the probable intention of the Government, if elected to  have a Summer session to put them  through.  At first the   Liberals  agreed   to the  proposition, but  they came back later  with the statement   that the one supply they   would  agree to   vote would  be civil salaries for   three months and  enough   money to   make   Spring   repairs on the roads.    They refused any  public  works   vote   at  all   they   also  wanted immediate  dissolution and an  election at once.    Theit demands were  indignantly refused,   but the Premier  in a fighting speech on the floor of the  House toild  of the private conferences  and declared that the Liberals apparently desired   to throttle  the Prohibition Bill as he would  be unable to put  it through according to promise if the  House   were   dissolved   now.    He declined to   consider the   voting of   any  supply   other than   a supply   for   the  whole year.  Messrs. Macdonald, Brewster, Williams and Place attacked the Premier  in   unmeasured   terms.    They   defied  amending bill and used every artifice  in their power to delay its passing, ft  was a hot fight.  The Premier claims that at the worst  he had all of today in which to put  through the bill to make clear the life  of Parliament until .June 1st.  With one amendment after another  they held the fort iiiiLil 20 minutes  past 12, when the liill was finally given  its third reading. They now promise  action before the Court of Appeal to  determine the exact status of the Le  gislature.  Late yesterday tlie Premier told the  Opposition he would withdraw his  offer to them and would decide himself what bills would be laid over. He  charge.I the Liberals were secretly  allied with the liquor interests in try-  to force dissolution at once, by tying  up the businees of the country, preventing the estimates being passed for'  necessary work and delaying the prohibition vote indefinitely.  As it now stands unless the Liberals '  can find some legal Haw in the Governments action. Parliament   will have a  lease   of   life   until   .June   1st,   unless  sooner dissolved.  It is probable the Parliament will be  dissolved about the middle of April,  with an election about the first of July,  much depending on lhe obstruction  tactics of the Liberal.-.  Premier Bowser proposes to bring in  a bill to give the.vote to all B. C. soldiers in British possessions, but owing  to the difficulty to procure the necessary power to take ohe vote of men on  foreign soil, the men in the'trenches  will not be able to vote.  He further declares that despite the  opposition of the Liberal members he  proposes to carry through his prohibition program so that the people may  vote on it at the time of the general  election and the Premier and his section of Conservative members will endeavor to eliminate compensation from  the'issue, it is ������mid   ,-ilthouvb   many of  the member-* in   <��������� ��������� ��������� -- -���������" ��������� - -1- iijw.iiig'  to have this added, either   in tlu*   bill  or on the referendum.

Walter  Beam,    well   and   favorably  known in this camp,   taken from Mining and Scientific Press,   San Francisco:    "So long   Hetty" was   one of the  mottoes inscribed, on the banners used.,  to decorate   the streets of the   mining,  settlement of Sutter Creek on the occasion   of a recent   celebration  of the  reopening   of Hayward's   old Eureka  mine.   Mrs. Hetty  Green, an affluent -  lady residing in New York, has owned  this mining   property  unprodructively  for many years; in fact it has lain idle  for the time of a generation. We echo*  the 'so longl'   and hope   to see   other-  idle owners of valuable mining property advised or compelled to end a policy  of    dog-in-the-manger,   whereby    so-  large a part   of the   public   domain is-  alienated   to no useful   purpose.    We  congratulate  the citizens  of the little  town   in   Amador   county on   the resumption of operations at this famous  Californian   mine   and   felicitate   the  community on   the fact that   the task  of  reopening   the    deeper   workings,  closed since the fire  of 1S75, should be  in the hands of so experienced a miner  and manager as  Mr. T. Walter Beam.  It ia a fine  adventure and   we hope it THE HEDLEY GAZETTE.

Iii the meantime the German  fleet made a short excursion out  ���������'��������� of the Kiel canal,, evidently for  the purpose ol: getting a little  much-needed exercise and experience after months of inaction. That there is a naval  movement on the tapis is evident, but that it can result in  anything but disaster to Germany is also evident. That is  the moment for which the Allies with their magnificent fleet,  have waited and watched. The  moment will not be lost.  Russia is pounding away on  the Eastern front and is driving  the terrible Turk back into the  deserts of Arabia.

The Enderby Press begins its  ninth year with the reflection  that the past "years spent have  been most pleasant". A clean,  newsy little home weekly may  not make its owner a millionaire but he can at least spend a  pleasant time in its production,  and a paper of the stamp of the  Press is a credit to any town as  well as to its editor.  The action of the provincial  government in striving to aid  provincial shipping ought to receive the commendation of  every business man in the province, Liberal or Conservative.  Aiming as it does to encourage  Mr. Mac-Lean, M. P. for Halifax, when- speaking to the address, expressed the hope that  the patronage evil could in some  way be lessened, and Sir George  Foster, who followed him, made  we are told an eloquent appeal  to both parties to unite in bringing about this very desirable  reform. It has always seemed  inexplicable that members of  any parliamentary body should  wish to be pestered with the  disposition of political patronage. Of course, there are some  individuals to whom the power  of influencing the giving out of  public contracts or the making  of appointments seems a very  desirable thing. It measures  up to their conception of public  life, but a tolerably extensive  acquaintance with men in representative positions convinces  us that such persons are in a  small minority, and that to the  very great majority to men in  Parliaments or legislative bodies, the matter of patronage is  irksome almost to the point of  being intolerable.���������Colonist.

This is possibly tlie biggest test the  dam will ever have, this winler's fall  of snow and formation of ice being exceptional and although the real high  water will not arrive for weeks yet, it  will not thc-ii be accompanied by anything like the amount of drift that appeared Sunday in the coming of the  ice.  ���������Hold On, John Bull"  March Rod and Gun has an interesting table of contents for the lover of  outdoor life.

"The price of gasoline has made a  rapid advance since last fall: Some  predict that by the time the auto season opens in full swing this spring,  cons uiners will be obliged to pay close  to 50 cents a trallon for it. Last year  the prevailing price was around 35c.   .  According to. the provincial health  board, the population of B. C has decreased approximately 25% since the  beginning of the war. The actual lo-  duction is placed at 100,000. Of this  amount at least 80,000 have gone to  active service in connection with the  war. Hard times and the completion  of railway work has accounted for the  rest.  Roscoe Roadhouse, one of the boys  of the 172nd Battalion, now in training at Kainloops, died at that place on  February 2Sth, of pneumonia. But a  week before he had written to bin parents, who live at Kaleden, saying he  was in the best of health.

Brother Power', of the Kootenaian  has just received a communication  from John D. Rockefeller, Jr. being  the latters addresses on "The Colorado  Industrial Plan." It made such an  impression on the Kaslo pen-wieldcr  that he went right to work and had  the windows of the office cleaned forthwith. Nothing like having plenty  of light on such a mighty important  subject. The innovation seems to  have caused unseemly levity in Kaslo  owing to tho fact that the event took  place some months ahead of the annual schedule time.  ." The most recent report from the  Canada Copper Corporation- states  that there has been developed to date  at its Copper Mountain property approximately 10,900,000 tons of ore of  an average grade of 1.75 per cent copper, or 35 pounds per ton, with an estimated recoverable value of 20c pei-  ton in gold and silver.  The erection of a plant of 55,000 tons  daily capacity to treat the ores at Cop-  per Mountain, British Columbia, has  been recommended by the company's  consulting engineer, f; With the completion of this plant, the company will  be able to produce at the rate of 00,000  pounds of copper daily, or 22,600,000  pounds per annum; The estimated  cost of production is S1-2 cents per  pound of copper. This would leave an  average net profit of 0 1-2 cents per  pound, or $1,-17-1,000 per annum, with  copper selling at 15c per pound. This  would insure earnings at the rate of  91c per share, with all the bonds converted into stock, including the last  issue of $2,000,000.     "  It is estimated that a maximum of  $2,000,000 will be 'required to place the  property on a 2,000 ton basis. This will  include concentrator, power plant,  general development work, and also  complete payment on claims under option. All ores will be extracted liy  means of a tunnel; approximately 50  percent by tho open-cut glory-hole  "iiii'tliod. It is estimated that the cost  of production during this stage will  not exceed S 1-2 cents for copper after  crediting gold and silver values, and  the cost of production from the deeper,  ores will not exceed 10 1-2 cents cost,  the profit will be reduced to 67c per  share.  Canada Copper has developed a fail-  sized mine, and with the successful  financiug of its new bond issue it bids  fair to enter the ranks of the low-pi iced copper issues in the near future as  a dividend-paying proposition.  As an evidence of their faith in the  successful outcome of the Canadian  Copper Corporation's Copper Mountain property, the Canadian Pacific-  engineers, who have kept in close  touch with developments at Copper  Mountain, have decided to run a spur  to the mines from Princeton, a distance of 12 miles in the air line. The  location has been practically determined, and when the matter of races has  been adjusted active construction will  be started.���������N. Y. Mining Age.
