The Independence mine on the Co-  quihalla Summit, commonly known as  the Swede group, will probably resume  large operations in the near future. It  will no doubt be remeinbeied by the  older residents of Hope, anout fifteen  years ago this mine, then only a prospect, was sold to the Granny smelter  company for $110,000. The owners  now have a showing of 40 feet of massive copper ore, which runs $23 to the  ton. The present workings are within  three miles of the new railroad. This  mine is about 30 miles from Hope, and  50 miles from Merritt.���������Pioneer. .  Trafalgar Day Dance  Was Most. Successful  P. W.

No general denials, no diplomatic  evasions can offset the careful investigation made by the American Committee on Armenian Atrocities. ��������� From  beginning to end its report i.s based on  the testimony of witnesses who aie  vouched for.  For six months  the Turks have carried on a campaign of race extermination   in   Asia   Minor.    In   cold  blood  they have plundered and murdered the  Armenians,   here and   there   offering  the'offioial  pretext of 'military neces-  ity.' ' Wherever   there wei'e   Armenian populations their homes have been  sacked and they have been driven into  exile, helpless and starving,   Mothers  and infants,   girls and old   people, by  tens of  thousands  have' been   herded  like beasts, left to   perish by the wayside or to die of   neglect after their removal from   their villages.    The  non-  Moslem men for the most part had already been impressed into the Turkish  army to   fight the  Russians,  and  by  way   of return   their   families    have  been scattered, their  women and girls  subjected   to outrage and the  young,  sick and aged   left without   means of  subsistence.  In all the history of Turkish brutality there has been no blacker chapter  than the atrocities inflicted upon the  Armenians since last April. Back of  it all is the deliberate policy of the  Turkish Government to wipe out a  people differing in���������i-sice-and religion  with their rulers.  The world has had frequent reminders of the frantic cruelty of the Turk  toward the ��������� Christian population in  the Ottoman Empire.

Griffiths Says  Farewell to Hedley-  Rev. and Mrs. Griffiths left Tuesday,  for their new home in Michigan City,  Idaho, Mr. Griffiths preached his  farewell sermon Sunday evening to a  packed church. His text was, "Put  on the whole armor of God," and the  sermon was most impressive, containing as it did the faiewell. message of  the minister who had given the very  best kind of set-vice to his congregation. The reception held Monday-  afternoon at the home of Mr. and Mrs,  A. Clare, was well attended and all  expressed their regrot that Mr. and  Mrs. Griffiths were about to leave-  Hedley. They are followed to their  new home with the very best wishes  of the congregation of St. John's  church and their numerous friends.  Born to Mr. and Mrs. G. M.

The contestants will be H. D.  Barnes and Paddy Murray, the latter  having won in the tie game with S. E.  Hamilton.  There is food for thought in the following exeerptfrom a recent interview  granted by   the Dowager Empress of  Russia: "Russia has been too confident  to all those   immigrants to whom the  empire accorded favors and high position.   A German   even though   he be  shown every kindness, remains always  a German.    I often   said so when   the  Czar  Alexander   was  alive,   but   he  would not believe me.

JOHN JACKSON  Dated thisTlh day of October. I0lu,  NOTICE  With  regard  to the war, we  ' reach our conclusions too quickly Some times. Our judgements  are  hasty.    The fact  that Gen.  Ian Hamilton  returned to England to make a report gave rise  to the rumor that the campaign  in. the   Dardenelles   had   been  bungled.    But it   does not look  as if the campaign was bungled  when we see the Austro-German  forces rushing to the assistance  of   their   ally Turkey.   If   the  campaign   was bungled   would  Germany   find it necessary   to  mass troops at once on the Servian frontier,   and at all costs  force a passage to Constantinople?   No. what is more likely is  that the Turbulent Turk, smarting under  the yoke of German  officers, showed  signs of dissatisfaction, if not   defection,  and  Germany has  had to make a  demonstration   to save the per-  sonel  of the   German-officered  Turkish army.    Don't let us get  into the  habit of crying calamity, until calamity is upon us.  A correspondent writes ns  that alien enemies in this Province ai'.e taking tlie place of���������  men who have entered the army  in many lines of work, especially in the-mines--and smelters.  He asks the Government to investigate the" matter and take  such action as may remedy  such a state of things.

A. F. KIRBY  Dated this 7th day of October, 1015.  James Harper, of the Columbia  Bottling Works, of Rossland, came in  on Tuesday's train to look over his  plant here and arrange some matters  of business. Mr. Harper assured the  Gazette representative that just as  soon as Spring opens Up he will start  the plant to work here. .lust what  staff he would put on at lhe start, he  was not in a position to say, but he  was safe in saying that the plant  would he worked continuously when  once started.  If you are either, read and consider carefully what follows: In the past twenty-live years, hundreds of men like you,  poor, hard-working, low-paid men, have risen from the ranks  of common labor to such high salaried positions as Mine  Superintendent, Manager, Chief Engineer.  These men have not given up their daily work to go  to a far distant college and study for three or four years tlie  scientific side of mining. They could not possibly afford to  do so, for they were in many cases, men of thirty or forty  yes, "even fifty years of age, with family ties, they had wives  and children to support, how then, did they get their scientific training? You may perhaps think that these men had an  uncommon ability for drawing knowledge from their practir  cal experience,- but if you will reflect a few minutes on the  calculations that a man must be able to make to pass even  the lower Government examinations, you will readily admit  that a lifetime'of practical experience, without instruction of  some kind along the lines of mathematics and mechanics,  would not take you very far up the ladder of which the different Government examinations are the rungs.  The way these men qualified for. better positions  was by studying the science of mining in spare time, an hour  or two each night, and they have made good, why should  3:011 not do the same? Why not let the International Correspondence Schools help you to shorter hours, lighter Avork  and more pay ?  Perhaps you think that you have not enough education to begin the study of Mining engineering, this is not the  case, the courses of study taught by the Scranton Schools are  so arranged that you can commence 'with.-addition,, subtrac- j  tion, multiplication and division should that be necessary,  and go along gradually into mensuration, which teaches you  to calculate the areas of piston heads, cross sections of pipes,  etc., which you must know in calculating horse-power, the  amount of water, air or sludge that a*'pump7 of a given size  will deliver under certain conditions, and so on from subject  to subject till you graduate.  Methods of working mines under different conditions  mine gases, geology, assaying, mine and mineral land surveying, prospecting and all other matters allied to the Mining  Engineering profession are fully covered in the most logical  order, each subject is a step from the one before to the one  ahead, and each prepares the   student well for the next step  PAINTING  , PAPER-flANGIMG  KALSOMINING  TERMS MODERATE,  DnLY ME.
