R BROWN  British Columbia Land Surveyor  Tei., No. 78 P. O. Dkawkr 160  PENTICTON,  B. C.  Development.work in the Rocher de  Boule mining district has not been le-  tarded by war, aceoiding to Mr. B.  R. Jones of Skeena Crossing who recently arrived from the north on a  business trip. Mr. Jones has large interests at Skeena Crossing- which is 101  miles from Prince Rupert on the line  of tbe Grand Trunk Pacific Railway,  anel is the shipping point for tbe mine-sin that locality.  Discussing the mining situation. Mr.  Jones observed-that the decline in the  price of copper following the outbreak  of hostilities in Europe, made those  interested in the- development of the  Rocher de Book- section ft-j-f somewhat  apprehensive <-it first, but that "the ut-  titude" of the. different companies" in  proceeling with the operations allayed  the uneasiness.  "Tlii-'ores-in our "district are of so  high a grade that they can beruarKeted  at a good profit in spite of the present  low price of copper, and the leading  smelteis have declared ,a desire to receive thrin, " said Mr. Jeuies. '  "The Montana Continental Development Company which-is operating-the  Rocher de -Boule mine' aiiel lease, is  employing about'Tomen and is rushing  work' in oreler- to begin shipping- ore  before snow flies. The concern will  handle at loa.-t 100 tons per day to begin with and will increase, the output  as fast as the development of the mine  will -allow'of increasing the working  force. The Great Ohio, which is being  operated by Poi Hand, Ore., capitalists,  has been driving" a crosscut which will  tap their big vein at. a depth of 350  feet," and just before I left the Cross  ingrrnrwt; came -lihiit they had ehconir;-  tercel conditions which strongly indicate that they will reach the ore body  in a few days, This will give us another heavy shipper.  "The Red Rose group, which is le-  garded by many as the best undeveloped property in the district, will no  doubt soon be taken over by a strong  American company which has been  trying to make terms with the owners.  This is a proposition of great tnagni-  ture, and one which will require the  expenditure of a large amount of  money for its development."   .  Mr. Jones isheiefor the purpose of  purchasing furnishings for the "Copper Tavern," a fine hotel which he has  erected at the Crossing. He is staying  as a guest at the Hotel Vancouver.  The minitig claiui.s'in Voigt's camp  will be represented at San Francisco by 1,001). pounds'.-of picked samples.

The Great Northern railway company is rapidly closing up purchase  contracts for their right of way  through the vicinity of Hope. They  have already paid out $20,000 to property owner's. There still remains a  few odel lots unpurchased, ;ts the valuation'placed thereon by the holders  eloes not appear to meet with the approval of the railway company's purchasing agent. As a last resort the  railway company will submit the matter to arbitration and the natural result will be that prevailing real estate  values only can be expected te> obtain.  ���������West Yide Review.  It is reported that,the Star mine,  Sandon, will resume* operations next  week^ Also that .the surprise and  other mines 'there;'"which have been  running with i-educe'd.,forces "for the  past three weeks, will,"put on the full  complement of men,/find resume stuping operations.���������-Slocun Rece-id.  A large body of ore, rich in galena,  carrying high values in silver and  lead, lnis been discovered at a .point  on the north side of^Uonstance Cove,  Esquimalt, B. C. it, is alleged that  the.lead can be tracer! for a distance of  1,500 fcet'and that'tlie,ore is in suffici-  "ent-quantity to ensure its profitable  working. Tbe land has already been  staked anel claimed..' *'  The Ruth-Hope at* Sarulon is "till  running, with seventeen men on the  payroll, and wrll hot close down.  Other properties-beirig worked in the  vicinity of Sandon 'are the Sin-prise,  Noble Five, Payne ifnd two leases on  the Reco.

The propos-al that the Uniteel States  government" purchase ..half the silver  output of that country; at a price of  about'52c cents, will furnish a-basis fur-  re-establishing a market for the white  metal, which was demoralized on the  announcement, of the war. This may  .have a beneficial effect-on the mining  of silver in'British Columbia as well  as in the United States. With the  Mexican production demoralized by  civil war,  and unlikely to assume im-"  WORK PROGRESSING  Things are moving along steadily in  the upper valley. Already n consignment* of some twenty carloads of steel  lias arrived for the Coquihalla section  of the Kettle Valley railway while  some eighty cars more are in prospect  or on the way. It is doubtful if the  K. V. will more than reach Princeton  this fall, but the G.N. steel ulicady  extenels between ten and fifteen miles  beyond Tulameen while the grading  to join the K. V. line from Merritt is  practically complete. If no unforeseen  obstacles occur passenger trains will  be running from the upper Similkameen to Vancouver by the end of the  year.  The immediate prospects of better  railway facilities seems lo he giving  new impetus to business in the upper  valley. Tulameen is standing up well  under the piesent depression, and  Coalmont is finding a new market for  its coal irr theK.V. construction work.  At present the' company are necessarily producing at a relatively high cost  owing to the fact that their aerial  tram is not yet installed and the coal  has to be hauled some three miles by  team to the point of shipment. However the cotil is stiid to be of a sufficiently superior quality that the K.V.  officials are paying the higher figure  for it to use in their steam shovels. It  is expecteel that the company will  .take up the work on the tram without delay, if the continued demand  for coal this year justifies such outlay.

The Sunrise is doing pretty far  work since tho fine weather set in.  They have a lot of fine ore on the  dump anel in sacks. That which has  been taken out lately is a steel galena  and a beautifiul sample at that. Good  judges say it is the finest ever seen in  this section. As soon as wha't is now  out is sackeel the mine will have to  close, unless shipping instructions  come forward. In case the ore is held  it will have to be housed for thu winter. If the prices change for the better', anel the smelter says so, then the  ore. will go forwarel at once. Since  Last report, a ledge from six to ten  feet wiele, has been exposeel, carrying  a gooel grade of silver- lead.���������Ominera  Herald.  The Le Roi No. 2 Limited  have suc-  ceeeleel iu making arrangements that  permittee!  the re-opening of the Josie  mine for the shipment of ore on Tuesday of last week.     The mine has been  closed   down  for   slightly   over   two  weeks,  owing to  the stringent situation  resulting   from   the   war.     The  management states  that about 1,500  tons of ore will be extracted monthly.  This necessitates the   employment of  about twenty men,   who are now at  work.     About one  car a day will be  shipped to  the smelter at Trail.    The  reopening of the Josie has brought encouragement to the citizens  and relief  to the men who had been thrown out  of employment.���������Rossland Miner.  we are pr/ictically certain that the  main line in this province will be  completed within schedule time."  OUR BABY   BAND  Creditable  Performance   Labor Day-  Pleasant Earnest of Future  Entertainment  Of all  the attractions at our recent  Labor Day celebration   the  outstanding feature which   merits particularly  warm praise from the citizens was "the  performance of the local band.    While  not the first time  the   boys  have ap-  peareel  in  public. Labor Day  may be  considered  as their  real debut, and if  the results were as gratifying to Prof.  Glaze as to.the general  public he may  rest easy in the assurance of genuine  satisfaction.   If any excuse were needed for the brand of music furnished it  might  be  {beaded   that prior  to   the  organization of the band  many of the  members  were absolutely   "raw ma  terial*'   from   a    musical   standpoint.  But no excuse is  required.    The boys'  work stands on its merits,  and   the  warmest congratulations are due to  the promoters anel supporters of the  project,   the   hoys  who take it up so  enthusiastically anel Professor Glaze  who   achieved such   sterling   results  with  the material at   his command.  Composed as it is of local  men  who  are likely to remain with us, the bane!  is a real asset to the town.    Good luck  to you, boys; we are proud of you.  No living Irishmen* -.itnd'orstaHd.s'-','  himself, and no two Irishmen under- '  stand each other. It is therefore  impossible for any human being  born outside of that beloved isle of the  sea to comprehend the way anel  walks of those children of mirth and  sorrow���������the Irish. r  No   nation  ever kept  them  down,  for they  were  not there  when  they  were sat on.    Their   talk    is  full  of  wit   and  their    poetry   full of tears  Their    laughter ' falls   <m    your   ear   c:  like the music of the'   '.Spiing  Song,,  and their war cries  have  been   heard  in every big white  man's battle since  Shem, Ham and  Japeth left the ark.  Only one.  man  ever  tried   to  teach  them    how    to   fight.     He    was   tin  ignorant   person    from    "somewhere  east of the Suez,"and   his rest lias not  been disturbed since.  It has not entered into the heart  of man to' conceive what the result  would be if the Germans ever tried"  their goose step and Prussian military rule on the Irish. One thing  seems certain, it would * be hard���������  on the Germans.  Locke,    the   great   English, philosopher,  maintained    that  there    was  no such    thing   as   an   innate   idea.  But Locke  did  not know  the  Irish,  who  were all  born   with  the   innate  idea of how   to  fight.    That  is  why  there is now  a sign  hanging otitsiele  the     Imperial   Palace     at   Potsdam  that reads   :���������"No Irish   need  apply."  But some day the    Iri.-h   will    go  to  Berlin,  anel    they  will   hang   a  new  sign  on  that   German   hook    and  it  will read. "Eiin Go Bragh."  ���������   A list of   their great  fighters   could  lie found  on   the    muster  roll   of the  British  army   and    the   part   eif the  roll  that deals    with  generals   rends  like  the baptismal    records   of   some  parish    church    in     Ballyskellyskee1.  They   may   not   be   great   tradesmen,  but who -wants   to work   in a factory  or   :i   building when    he    can   be   a  member  of  the   Legislature,  or join  the  police   force,    or    man   a  chain-   -  pion. world   prize    fighter,   or' fix   up  who shall   be   the   next    Govenor of  New  York,  or run   the  world's  best  baseball team?  No one was surprised when Britain  in this supreme hour of life and death  turned to Kitchener and placed the  army in his hands, asking no questions, hut voting him erne thousand',  milliem-dollars and pledged to him and  his 'command every able-bodied man in  Great Britain, together with tbe hosts  that shall go out from the dominions  beyond the seas. Heaven brood over  that isle of the sea anel over County  Kerry, where Kitchener was born.  A month ago the whole Empire had  a heartache and a headache because of  the strife in Ireland. To-day two men  speak for Ireland. Neither of these  men say anything, for one speaks out  of his 12-inch guns, and the. other is  tongue tied, except to the soldier or  civilian who falls down on his job, and  then Kitchener talks to him in Irish  words that have the green turf hanging to them in big painful chunks.  What would Britain give if she.  could make the years fall away like  an outworn garment from the aged  shoulders of out- hero Irish soldier,  Roberts? Yet at fourscore years he  looks across the Channel, and his "eye  is not dimmed nor his natural force  abated."  Over all the earth where our flag  flies there are trenches and graves  where side by side rest the bones of  the men of Sussex and Kent; and the  men of our great Highland race, and  their dust mingles with the dust of  the men who first saw the sunlight as  it breaks thiough the*, mist and the .  rain, and touches with gold the lakes  anel fields of that ever-biessed isle of  joy and tears, of laughing children  and big, brave men.  Salmon Arm Fair Cancelled  Salmon Arm, Sept. 11.���������At a meeting of the directors of the Salmon  Arm and ShuswayLake Agricultural  Society held in the secretary's office  on Saturday evening it was decided to  cancel the full fair for this year. Tho  crop of fruit is equal to that of previous years, and the vegetables are  nearly as good as in the best seasons,  but the directors felt satisfied that  sufficient interest would not he taken  to make  the show a financial  success.

We have n'o de-site to '"knock" the  La hoi Day sport--, but Irum llie standpoint of everyone except the prize,  winners the celebtation must be regarded iu light of a failure.  While such events are not  business  matters, they must be  conducted  on  stiictly   business    principles,    which  seem in our case   to be; first,   that the  day shall pay for itself���������that the business uii-ti who finance the scheme shall  at least "break even'* when they come  to balance their  accounts,  and   those  "who have the amusement shall finally  foot the bill; second,   that guests from  ii broad anel   patrons from   home  shall  go   their   ways    thurout-hly   satisfieel  that next  year  it will be just a  little  better*.   Simple, business sense demands  this find, under  present conditions,   it  is precisely  what  we cannot  seem  to  get, simply because our celebrationis  held at the wrong time of the year.  The   Gazette fyles   for some years  - hack    show    that   the  early  part of  September    has  been wet   and  cold:  they  also show that three out of the  last fenir Labor Day celebrations liave  been    marred   by rain.    Briefly   the  .-matter is this: the committee  may lie  awake (it nights figuring how to make  -a success of the day but-they sire only  getting about one chance in four even  to try.   Last   year  the   programme  was superior and this year quite up to  par, yet in  both cases the crowd was  so small that most  of the   business  men  who   made special   preparation  for the day came off with a defici.t  for their plans.   Why?   Because the  church  considers  that   a single bap?  tism,  occupying a couple of seconds  will bold a man  till he reaches years  of discretion.   When one receives two  or three   successive   baptisms,   each  extending over a couple of days,   it  usually sets him   up for the rest of his  life.    He dopsn't come back for more.  This year we would have had more  fun  fishing  or picking   berries   than  standing around like so many.moultin*  fowls trying to look pleasant while  being rained on.   This won't do.   If  we don't take charge of events, events  will presently take charge of us; and  we will have no   celebration at all.  For its population, ours is one of the  best little towns on the map, but year,  after year it is receiving a sorry advertisement in sending away a host  of disgruntled   visitors from its one  big day.   The sum of the whole'matter is this: the cerebration should pay  its way���������pull its own   weight so to  sjjedk.   It is not doing so now; it is  getting worse and will continue so to  The yeai 1915 will find the nations  of Europe hammering at oneanol lu-i-."  gates in the world's last and greatest  wai; the same year will find Canada  and the United States inutally celebia-  tinga h until ed years of peace. Europe'.-  scbenie I'or preserving peace has been  a sort of international poker in* which  each player was continually trying to  out-blulV his opponent. The ��������� plan  adopted iu Aineoica was as follows.  After the war of IS12, along the  c*>u-t line fioim the St. Lawrence to  Lake Supei-iot���������a di-lance of about  two thousand mile.��������� there were sum-*  forty-six foits on the American side  an.l ab.iul. tlie same number dotted on  the* Canadian shore. Beside these  fat Iificalions there were on tbe Greal  Lakes a hutulteel or more craft of all  si/.es devoted to the. art of fighting���������  this in the interests of peace.  At the close of the war both parties  became feverishly active strengthening thc-i; defences: not that wai  was at all imminent but statesmen  held that there was nothing like pie-  pa redness till Richard Rush, Secretary  of State and Sir Charles Bagot, English  Minister at Washington, both sincere  apostles of peace, got their heads  together and drew upon a single shei t  of paper their famous "arrangement'  which has enabled us to set tin example  to the world for a hundred years. Its  provisions were as follows:  L���������The naval forces henceforth to  be maintained on the Great Lakes  shall be confined to the following vessels on each siele:  2.���������On Lake Ontario one vessel,  not to exceed one hundred tons burden, eairying not'more than twenty  men anel one eighteen-pound carifi'oii.."

You are  . better men and women because of  advertising. You eat more wholesome'food. You wear better clothes.  Your home is better furnished.   You  ������������������ have cleaner and more sanitary  houses.    You read better books and  '-'magazines. You seek mofe healthful amusements.  j. Your whole standard of living has  been raised-1���������and why? Because  the men who make these better  ' ''things are telling you that you-will  "'' be more comfortable,, happier, and  healthier if you use these higher  grade goods.  It is advertising that ��������� makes it  ���������*��������� possible for you to buy "the best"  right at yciur. corner store. It is  ,. advertising   that   encourages    the  inventor to make new comforts and  *. new utilities and enables you to buy  them almost immediately after they  are perfected.  J. J. Hill says this "high living"  costs more. True for J. J.���������but  it is worth more. And leavingjthe  cost aside, do you want to go back  to buying jam out of a pail, oatmeal  out. of a barrel, raisins out of sticky  boxes, or tea exposed in art open  chest?  Do you regret the money yoa  paid for a Player Piano?  Would you forego the new style  razor?  Isn't a Tungsten worth a thousand  candles ?  Would you now be enjoying these  if enterprising manufacturers- had  not told you about them in their  advertisements ?  Hi  Hi  Hi  HI  II  Isn't life brighter because we have new  and higher standards of living?  Let us thank advestising for it.

The heavy rains of the last week  have resulted in the usual tiouble  with the flume. Rocks have been  rolling all week with more or less  danger to the boys on the job. but  without much damage to the flume  itself. Monday morning about eight-  o'clock a huge boulder came elown  jnisfc above the cabin at the turn of the  creek and smasheel through both top  anel bottom planking, necessitating  the cutting off of the water for repairs.  In" the afternoon, while the water  was still off another break occured  just above the town, where the flume  rests on trestles. Fortunately the  first boulder struck where the plank-  i.-     ���������       .     .  ing rests on.rock .bottom and the  second'came elowh when'.'the water was  off, otherwise   a. disastrous washout  such as occured last sping coulel hardly have been averted.  ;..On.coming to town some week ago  we 'were agreeably surprised  by the  marked' improvement   of  our   local  hotels, and a few days ago it was our  privilege to explore the interior of the  ���������'Great Northern".    The old building  has' been renovated to a considerable  extent, and is very comfortable while  the hew wing is of course modern in  every respect.   The rooms are large,  airy and  in some cases  equipped with  running hot and cold water, which we  believe will'extend to them all eventually.    There are fully equippeel bath  anel toilet rooms on each floor.    The  kitchen, dining room, plumbing, heating and lighting systems are quite on  a par" with the rest of the plant and  altogether the Great Northern from  cellar to garret presents the appearance of a thoroughly modern   up-to-  date hotel.

English  Church service in the school house'  last Sunelay evening. As he intends  going on with his stnelies in the Latimer Hall Theological College at Vancouver, he made this his farewell service for the year. We all join in  "wishing him every success.  The Princeton Lacrosse hoys, as the  champions of the Similkameen, will  'meet the champions of the Kootenay  at Nelson some time next week. Jump  in Princelon. You're earned the  laurels, and we hope you will win. If  you don't Kereineos must regain the  championship and go after it.  An Elberta peach, taken off one of  the trees in the orchard of" Geo. B.  Clarke is we believe the largest ever  grown in the valley, and should bear  comparisons with anything'of its kind  in the world. The peach measured  fourteen anel a half inches in circnni-  ferance and weighed one and a half  pounds.  When men are fired off a job there  is generally ii reason, and whatever  position they are in in this free country of outs, he should be entitled to an  explanation. This apparently is not  the way the Great Northern road  bosses are looking at it just now, as  practically till the boys on tbe section,  who have been with us for the past  few years, have been let out.  The Women's Institute helel their  monthly meeting tit the home of Mrs.  J. A. Brown. Thirty two ladies being  present, much business was despatched. Mrs. II, 0. Clarke spoke of the  Convention which she had the pleasure of attending at Sumnierland. The  ladies have taken in.hand the splendid  work of helping the soldiers of tbe  King, by making many useful articles  that will be welcomed greatly by those  at the front. Refreshments were serv-  ey by the hostess before the meeting  broke up. A collection was taken up  in aid of the war fund.  GENERAL   JOTTINGS  This year the so called Fruit Fair  at Nelson will lie enlarged so as to include live stock. Special railway  rates of single fare for the round trip  will be in effect between Vancouver  and Medicine Hat. The -dates of the  fair are Sept 2-1 th and 25th,  Rain prevented the projected Labor  Day celebration tit Phoenix. ���������  Alfred Grundy has been appointed  chief of police in Merritt.  ��������� Ed. Clarke, formerly editor of the  Coalmont Courier, passed through  Princeton a'few days ago' en route for  Sun Francisco.  Carrier pigeon racing in the United  Kingdom litis been prohibited by the  Imperial Government for ' fear German secret service agents may be  using the birds to convey messages to  the Fatherland.  News comes from Marcus that owing  to the rigid enforcement of tho United  Sttites immigration laws, many  Canadians tire being turned back from  that point. Servians anel Italians  with through tickets are allowed to  pass on to their port of departure*, but  Austrians and Germans are being  peremptorily turned back.  At last Sir William Mackenzie has  succeeeled in financing- the remainder  of his railway project in London. It  is believed that not only the construction work of the main line of the G.  N. R. will now be pushed forward but  also that the more important branch  lines, including the. Vancouver Island  blanches and the trackage from Kamloops to Vernon. -  Over 7,000 men are now employed  on the building on the Pacific Great  Eastern Railway between Cheakanius  Canyon, B.
