They   found him  with one side practically blown  to pieces, and he died just as they  were taking him out of the mine.

GREENWOOD,   JUNE    I,    1911.  A blue mark here indicates that your Subscription has  become deceased, and that tho editor would once moro  like to  commune with your collateral.  When a Man is Fortunate  WAR TS   EXPENSIVE.  W.ut is hell upon earth, and expensive at the same time. When  the people of this mundane sphere  become real sensible, navies and  armies will be but a memory of the  bloody ages. The Canadian Con-  cililator shows up the expense as  follows:  "The cost of tho Militia and Defence of Canada in JSS0 was $G00,-  018.    In 1900 it  was   ������1,84(5,17S,  and in 1010 the outlay of that   department   was  ������4,070.05(3.     This  did not include the cost of armories  or expenditure  for naval   service.  'If we take the cost of tho   nucleus  of the Canadian navy, the Rainbow  and Niobe, aud the votes for new  drill halls, armories, military store  houses, the items in the Marine and  Fisheries   Department   chargeable  to the naval service,   wo   have   a  grand total of over $22,2SO,000, to  which the country   is   committed  for 1911, aud we are warned by the  Minister of Militia that the estimates may be considerably  exceeded  The Auditor-General   showb   that  since 1S0G, S12,I1S,150   has   been  spent in the   Militia    Department  that has been,charged to capital or  in other words, added to the   public debt.    The total cost of the mil  itary and   naval   preparations,  of  Canada for the current year amount  therefore, to about 20 per cent,   of  the country's total income.  The grand total expenditure of  Great Britain during the past fiscal year, in round numbers, was  SS29,500,000. Of this vast total  $175,715,000 was for the navy and  $137,125,000 for the army. When  the present Kaiser came to the  throne the expenditure of Germany  for its navy was $12,500,000 a year  I'y 1901 this had increased to 845,-  000,000, and in.3910 the   German  naval preparations cost ������105,000,-  000.    Adding to this the   cost   of  thc German arm}', war preparation  absorbs two-thirds of the income of  tho German   Empire.    What this  means should a great   war   break  out may be conceived when we reflect that in   times   of   peace   and  normal trade twenty-two per cent,  of tho population of  Germany are  not able to earn   enough   to   keep  above hunger and want.  During tho 19th century 20,000,  000 lives have been sacrificed in  war. Debts of great nations chiefly  incurred by war amount over $25,-  000,000,000, and interest on these  debts ������1,100,000. Annual cost of  armies and navies, S2,S30,000,000,  and value of men's services divert-  led from peaceful pursuits, $2,170,  '000,000.  A modern battleship costs more  than the land and buildings of the  oldest university on this continent,  and becomes obsolete in 15 years.  What the United States spent  on acquiring the Philippines would  have irrigated every acre of arid  land in that country.  The United States is spending 65  per cent, of all its national revenue  for armaments, pensions, and interest on war debts, leaving barel}7  more than one-third for civil. administrative purposes, and other  constructive work. The United  States War Department requires  this year over' $ 219,000,000, while  the pension list from past wars absorbs $153,500,000.  The annual cost of Britain's armaments at the present time, if  shown in dollar bills piled like the  leaves of a book, would make a  pile 37 miles high.  Since 1S50 the population of the  world has doubled, but the war in-  Do not think you are fortunate  when conditions are easy for you.  You are most fortunate when they  are hard. Ease never brings out  the best in man or women, but  hardship does. The finest characters are those that havo been literally hammered out by adverse circumstances. The sweetest personalities are as a rulo those that have  developed because of tho battles  fought with hardship.  It is Hamilton Wright Mabie  who says: "A man is specially  and divinely fortunate, not when  his conditions are easy, but when  they evoke the very best that is in  him; ���������when they provoke him to  nobleness, and sting. him to  strength; when they clear his vision, kindle his enthusiasm and inspire his will."  The happiest man is he who feels  that he is accomplishing something  and at tho same timo overcoming  his obstacles. When "a man has  nothing to overcome he becomes  stagnant; he is of no interest to  himself or any ono else.  But give this same man an object in life, give him obstacles to  overcome and he becomes a vitalized, galvanized human being.  It is said that the greatest suffering soldiers know comes through in.  activity. Scientists have said that  sheer weariness of camp life has. destroyed nearly as many men as has  battle. Inactivit}' is not an attribute of the normal man, and when  he is forced to accept it as his portion something goes wrong.  Keep a boy inactive, allow him  no obstacle to overcome, give him  everything he needs and never  allow him to lift his finger to help  himself and see what sort of a man  you make of him.  The easy berth makes the shiftless, irresponsible character. Obstacles are sure to make him  the opposite. That is, they will if  he has the least particle of fight in  him. There is something in the  very fact that we are opposed that  raises every drop of our lighting  blood to its highest point and we  immediately set all our forces at  work to overcome them.  Then it is that all that is finest  and noblest in a inau commences  to come to the surface. Take a  man and suddenly toss him out of  Luxury's lap to shift for himself.  If he is any sort of man at all he  soou develops an interest in life he  Commerce.  Gold Run was grouped and operated first by Chute'& Willis.

The McAllister group of four  mines near Threo Forks, 13. 0.,  has been incorporated in the State  of "Washington as the McAllister  Mining aud Milling company, Limited, as the result of adcal by which  the firm of Sharp & Irvine, mining  brokers of Spokane, purchased a  large interest in it on tho basis of a  cash price of $150,000 for the property. The new company is capital-  at $1,500,000, with om third of its  stock in the treasury.  Sharp & Irvine were interested in  the property by William Bennett,  who bought into it some ten years  ago and who has been mining in  tho Slocan district since 1894. He  has been foreman of many of the  leading properties in that country,  including both the Slocan Star and  the Rambler-Cariboo, and now is  manager of the Mountain Consolidated.  The McAllister group has been a  considerable shipper since the winter of 1910. Smelter returns on  the various lots of ore it has marketed shows values in silver as follows: 70.50, 210.7, 390, 200,  79S.00, G0.9, 120.1 and 204.'8  ounces of silver to tho ton.

Smith, entered,  the sorvlco of the Hudson Bay Co. Ho had been educated for the Civil Ser-  vico in India; hut tho sturdy life of hardship, the rigorous, close, hand-to^  hand battle with fate, somehow appealed to him. moro than tho easier'and  moro enervating life of the Orient.  For thirteen years ho labored on the hard Labrador coast, where tho.  cllmato'was inhuman, tho monotony insurmountable, the loneliness appal;  ling, and promotion seemed slower than the movement of a glacier. Bu^  young Smithniado his record, and In this rough training-school learned solf-r  reliance courage, self-conquest, prudence and shrewdness among the soliv  turles, nnd a sureness of judgment.

To understand  tbe   situation preticipated  by the  annexation of Texas in 1S45 it is  necessary to go back to 1S21, when  Mexico achieved her independence  of   Spain.    The patriots aimed to  establish a republic   based on the  American   model,   and   the   lirst  Mexican Congress adopted a set of  principles which,   had  they  been  lived up to, would have made Mexico blessed among the nations   of  tbe   earth.    It   was   proposed   to  abolish slavery, and all privileges  of birth and color, to protect property rights, and encourage foreign  commerce.    It was declared   that  "the laws should require patriotism and loyalty, limit alike the excesses of   opulence and   poverty,  tend to increase the wages of the  poor, and diminish popular ignor-  ence, vice and crime."  Unfortunately the new republic  was yet a baby when there appeared  in the person of Santa Ann, President of the confederation of States,  a despot and usurper, who dissolved  the Congress by force, and assembled another in its place. The second Congress was intimidated by  the dictator's display of troops, and  consented to abolish the constitution of 1824. Then the Mexican  Province of Texas rebelled Santa  Anna, declaring that its own rights  and prerogatives as an equal partner in the confederacy had been invaded by the dictator. Texas assembled a Congress of her own.  which declared independence of  Mexico and elected a President and  other officers of State.  Now it had happened in lS2fltliat  a Yankee named Moses Austin bad  asked permission of the Mexican  commandant-general at Monterey  to colonize some 300 families of  Americans in Texas, and without  waiting for an anRwer bad settled  there. It was these Americans and  hundreds of others who had followed them who were tho real insurgents against Santa Anna and tbe  struggle between Texas and the  rest of Mexico was really a battle  between Americans and Mexicans.  The incident of that war that is  best remembered was tho. inhuman  treatment of the Texan garrison of  the Alamo of San Antonio by Santa  Anna.    Only ono of 300 defenders  tiro of the Mexicans, and by the  President's orders ho was executed  and the bodies of all the dead cremated.  Eventually however Texas won  her independence, and a few years  later applied to the United States  for admission to the Union.    The  Democrats were anxious   to   take  her in, but tbe Republicans fought  against the proposal,  chiefly (.because   they  did not want another  slave State. Finally the Democrats  had their way and Texas was admitted  to  the   union   in   March,  1S45.    Mexico regarded the act as  a hostile one, for  she and Texas  had  many   outstanding   quarrels,  among them a  boundary  dispute.  Tens of thousands of square miles  of territory  wero involved in  it,  and once the United States took up  tbe cause of its newest State, Mexico, had either to fight,   or  to  relinquish a great strip of territory.  There were also pending claims of  Texans for damages on the Mexican    Government,   besides   many  similar   claims   of   Americans   in  other States  whose interests, and  investments in  Mexico had been  prejudiced by the numerous insurrections and  revolutions in   tbat  country.  Though a pretence was made by  both Governments of amicably adjusting their differences, both knew  that such a result was impossible.  The United States did not really  want  a friendly settlement.    She  wanted more territory, and swiftly  thc war came on.    Needless to say  Mexico  was soundly  beaten,   the  United  States losing some 2,700  officers and men killed and wounded, while the Mexicans lost 7,000  killed   and   wounded   and   4,000  prisoners of war.    By the terms of  the treaty of peace, 051,000 rquare  miles of territory parsed into the  possession   of thc United   States.  Thus,   California,   New    Mexico.  Arizona.   Western Colorado. Utah  and Nevada were acquired, and the  size of Mexico was just about cut iu  two.

Another stringer of valuable  ore was struck in the Argo tunnel  this week.  Coke for the Granby smelter  arrived at Superior yesterday, and  from there it will go over thc  Great Northern to Grand Forks.  Thc Granby mines will resume  operations ou the 15th.  The Rig Tunnel is in .2,200  feet, and the character of the  rock is becoming- richer in appearance.  Tho  Greenwood   smelter   has  .12,500 tons of coke on boat and|  between   the cast and this  rail,  city,   and '6,000 more tons liayc  been ordered.  Tu the Franklin camp thc old  workings of thc McKinley mine  nre being" rc-surveyed.  If the railroads decide to lower  the freight rate $1.50 a ton on  eastern coke there will be no  further demand for Crow's Nest  Pass coke by .the smelters in 13.' C.  A  tuunel is bcirivi' run on the  ou Observatory inlet.  The first of the Couuellsville  coke ordered by the Granby Co.,  from Pennsylvania is expected to  arrive at Grand Forks about  June 1.0. If sufficient shall have  been received by 15th, some of  the blast furnaces will be blown  in on that date.  The Granby Co., is preparing  to change its system of disposal of  blast furnace slag. Granulating  by water will be substituted for  the preseut method of dumping  the hot slag. Belt.conveyors will  convey the grauulated slag up an  incline to have a maximum height  of about 100 ft. The new system, which will do away with  the use of steam locomotives and  slag cars, will be ready for operation about four months hence.  Yesterday up the-drift on the  Elkhorn, a strike of about eight  inches was made, of high grade  galena.  aud the product loaded for shipment at a cost of $1.S6 per ton,  including  management  charges.

Diamond drilling on the claims  iu Chcsaw district that the  Granby Co., is prospecting under  bond and optiou of purchase, is  reported to have proved the occurence on one claim of about 25  feet of copper ore.  Belter grade ore in large quantity ban been mined lately in the  Granby mines at Phoenix than  for a long while previously.  These mines are reported to be  looking well and in shape to ship  much ore for years.  J. P, Graves, vice-president and  general manager of the Granby  Com M. S. and P. Co., lelt Spo-  kaue for New York on Saturday,  May 27. Geo. W. Wooster, of  Graud Forks, treasurer and director, followed two days later.  A meeting of directors in New  York will shortly consider reports  ��������� of ���������the company's mining and  metallurgical engineers, and of  Benjamin B. Lawrence, of New  .York, before deciding whether  to proceed with the purchase of  the Hidden Creek copper property  ped with life saving apparatus  and with every possible convenience for the miners. More machinery is to be installed, and the  output of coal will be greatly increased.  After the 15th of June the ores,  produced in thc Republic camp  will be shipped to Anaconda,  Montana, to be smelted. Until  recently .Republics ores were  smelted by the Granby.  Considerable   excitement   was  created in Barkerville recently by  the uncovering of a quartz ledge  from   12  to    20   feet   wide,   by  Messrs McKenna and McDoueral,  who are prospecting just back of  the town.    Although there is no  way of determining the values of  the ore until they receive returns  from a number of samples sent-to  the   Vancouver assay  ollice, the  ore has every indication of being  highly mineralized, pieces of pure  galona and lead from four to six  inches square having been taken  out, while a small quantity pulverized in a pan revealed a number of colors   to the naked eye.  This strike  is important,   inasmuch   as   the   ledge   diagonally  crosses   Williams'  creek  at   thc  lower end of the town, where ten  millions in placer gold was mined  in early Cariboo days.    It is the  opinion  of  the   discoverers that  thev have found the mother lode  of the early-day rich placerclaims  of  this section.���������Quesnel Observer.
