Paul Nelson, superintendent of
the Riverside mine the property
of the Jack-Paul Mining Company, of Spokane, on Tuesday
struck what is believed to be the
main lead on the property, and
the lead is over four feet in width
of solid high grade ore.
The ores in this mine are
silver-lead carrying good gold
values, but no assays have been
made .from the present strike
owing to it being just reached.
The lead was found on a 50
foot drift from the lower tunnel,
and was driven by Superintendent
Nelson on instructions from
Frederic Keffer, M. E-, the con^

This proves that the lead  ex
tends down strongly.

Oldest Towns
In Europe
Many European Cities Founded Before
the Christian Era
It is a common notion that Rome,
the "Eternal City," is the oldest city
3n Europe. It is true, Rome was
founded upwards of 700 years before
the birth of Christ, and the ruins of
three successive cities He more than
CO feet deep, under many of the present streets. Vet, Rome is many centuries younger than Naples, just as
Naples, so long famed for its climate,
beautiful bay and throngs of beggars,
is itself ages younger than the oldest
city in Europe, though it is the successor of a town occupying almost the
same site at the foot of Vesuvius, centuries before its first recorded eruption, by the ancient Greeks.

Etiquette In China
Knowing   How  to   Deport  Oneself
Very Important
When a saleman, or person seeking
business interviews, presents Iiis card
at the entrance to a Chinese merchant's place of business, the possibility of an audience depends altogether
upon how he deports himself while
awaiting the return of the cardbearer.
Should he be so indiscreet as to put
one foot over the twelve-inch railing
that Intervenes between the step and
the doorway, no manner of persuasion
can prevail upon the merchants to
grant him an Interview. In case he
waits patiently in the space allotted
to unknoAvn callers, this fact is noted,
and he,is usually ushered in. . '
Once in, there is still a more delicate matter to be disposed of, and in
case.the.newcomer is Ignorant of.the
customs, he; fares ill with his errand.

Prairie  Minerals
Most Northerly
Believe Alkali Deposits Are Source of
Much Wealth
What was at one time regarded as
a nuisance, but one to which tliere
was no remedy���the alkali deposits
in the Dominion are now regarded as
a potential source of wealth. In consequence of this change in view the
matter is to become the object ol an
investigation by L. H. Cole, of the Dominion Department of Mines.
Mr. Cole, who is at present travelling west in pursuit of his investigations, is now on his third field season making inquiries on behalf of the
Dominion authorities, into the question of the alkali deposits. His particular task is to determine the possible economic value and the extent
of the reserves of the sodium sulphate
and other alkaline deposits iii whicli
are included magnesium sulphate (Epsom salts) and sodium carbonate. Extensive beds of these minerals are
known to exist in Saskatchewan. Some
form the basic industries already established, and their product is of
value to manufacturers of many articles of domestic importance. Manufacturers of soap, paper, textile fabric and coloring matters use these
chemicals In some form or other,
hence, no doubt, the importance attached to the survey of the deposits
In Saskatchewan.
Plants for the extraction of the
chemical salt contents of the waters
of lakes in Saskatchewan are now in
operation at Dana, where the waters
of Muskiki Lake are utilized, whicli is
expected to produce no less than 30,-
000 tons of salt cake per annum when
projected improvements to the plant
are completed. At Frederick Lake,
five miles southwest of Dunkirk, another salt cake recovery plant has
been erected, and yet another at Fusilier, Sask.

Missionary From Congo Describes
Native  Customs ��
Alexander George Mill, an American
Baptist missionary, has returned with
his wife and daughter Barbara, from
the Belgian Congo where they passed
the last eleven years among the 75,000
natives of more than 100 villages.
During the last four years, Mr. Mill
reported/there were no murders in
this colony despite the fact that the
natives are regarded by the rest of
the world as cannibals.
"When a native discovers a
friend or relative whose manners
are somewhat foreign and unusual and
cannot be explained by any other reason than contact aad association with
evil spirits," said Mr. Mill, "he is reported to a council .which.invariably

Mail and Passenger Service Maintained Within Arctic Circle
Very few people are aware thai,
high up within the Arctic Circle, under the most adverse conditions of
darkness and storms, a regular mail
and passenger service by aeroplane
has been successfully maintained for
over two years without a single serious accident. v
This service, which follows the most
northerly air route in the world, links
the little community of Suorva, in the
extreme north of Sweden, with the
great waterpower centre at Porjus,
further to the southeast. The distance is only about 70 miles, but before the' aeroplane came it took days
to cover, over the mountains and
lakes, and Suorva was practical)', cut
off from the outside world.
Today the journey is completed in
about an hour, and there is a triweekly service. Last year over S7
per cent, of flights with the mails
were completed within schedule time,
even when the thermometer stood as
low as 40 degrees below zero.
The kind of difficulties are shown
by the fact that in the region - of
Suorva the wind has been known to
change and increase in velocity, within an hour, from 30 feet a second
southeast to 60 feet a second northwest, while an aeroplane leaving
Suorva in mild and damp weather has
suddenly entered a region so cold that
the weight of ice on its wings has
brought it down.
On many occasions the aeroplane
has been used to convey doctors to
patients, and vice versa, in cases ot
sickness or accident, and never once
has it failed in its errand of mercy.
During the winter, there are only three
or four hours of daylight but the pilot,
Mr. Holman, has flown in the middle
of the long night.
It remains to be added that the machine used is an English Avro with a
130 h.p. Clerget motor. It is fitted
In the summer with floats and in the
winter with skids.
There is to be an International Aero
Exhibition this summer at Gothenburg,
and Sweden points proudly to this remarkable service as showing what her
flyers can do.
In    Trans-
Will    Be    Used
Atlantic Service
Details of the first Atlantic airship
service between Spain and Argentina
have just been made public by the
London Daily Chronicle, which says
that it may soon be possible to bridge
the 5,000 miles between the two continents in three and a half days. The
service will operate between Seville
and Buenos Aires, and Zeppelin aircraft will be used.
- There will be terminal airdromes,
mooring masts, repair sheds ami
hydrogen factories at Seville and at
Buenos Aires. In addition, emergency landing grounds will be laid out
at the Canary Islands and at Cordoba,
In the Argentine.
On the American side of the Atlantic the hangars will be made on a revolving principle, because of the variability of the wind. Four airships
are being built to inaugurate the
scheme, and it is anticipated that
service will begin next summer. It
also is probable that arrangements
Will be made to link up Seville direct
with London by an airplane service.
The airships, fitted with nine engines, each developing 400 horsepower
will carry 40 passengers and 11 tons-
of' malls and merchandise. There
will be two simultaneous flights a
week in each direction, and the time
taken to cross the Atlantic will bc
three days and 16 hours. Passengers
will have all the comforts of an Atlantic liner without the disadvantages
of seasickness.
The ships will have a speed of S2
miles an hour. Zeppelin pilots wiio
have not less than 1,000 successful
flights to their credit will be engaged'to operate the craft. Each airship will carry six pilots and a commander.
Powerful wireless sets will be fitted into each ship, thus it will be
possible to keep in touch with 45
weather stations on the coasts of
Spain, Africa, America, the Canary
Islands, Cape Verde and Fernando
Noronha, as well' as with ships at

We have wanted moisture in this

THE     LEDGE,     GREENWOOD.:    B.     C.
Loses Out
anitoha When
rovince Votes Wet
Winnipeg.���Early returns gave a
majority in the province for the moderation bill of 31,106. Nearly all
rural constituencies were incomplete.
Electrical storms had occurred in
many districts, interrupting telegraph
and telephone lines.
X)f the total majority for the "wets,"
25,732 was secured in Winnipeg and
'5,'ltH in the country districts so far
reported. If will be.some days before complete figures for the province
are available, but it is estimated that
the majority at that time will be, close
to 30,000.
Only six polls in Winnipeg gave
dry majorities. The suburbs all went
wet. Brandon, the second city in
the province, had a wet majority of
903, the' figures being 2,435 and 1,532.
Nothing whatever has been received from nine provincial constituencies
���Turtle Mountain, Si. George, Rupert's Land Mountain, Killarney, Gilbert Plains, Fisheiv Deloraine and
Fairford. The wet majority is so
overwhelming, however, that belated returns can have no material
effect upon it.
Winnipeg, which voted wet in the
importation referendum of 1920 by
about ",000 rolled up tremendous
majorities in almost every poll and
more than tripled that figure.
Prohibition workers admitted by
10 o'clock that their cause had met
decisive defeat. ' They were surprised
and ^disappointed at the showing
from the rural polls and the smaller
towns, and at the size of the majority in Winnipeg. Moderation
League workers expressed gratification and pointed out that they had
caused a change in sentiment
throughout the province.
\Vinnipeg>-Arter prolonged conferences and negotiations the premiers
of Alberia and Saskatchewan- have
reached the conclusion that it is noi
possible (o form a satisfactory wheat
board. This decision is concurred in
by-representatives of the fanners''organizations who have been in conference here with Hon. C. A. Dunning,
Premier of Saskatchewan, and Hon.
Herbert Greenfield, Premier of Alberta. A statement . reviewing the
negotiations, and -announcing ��� the
abandonment of the effort ,to form a
board, was issued to the . Canadian
Press with the signatures.of the two
Premiers, who are to leave for their
homes ac once.
"We have found it impossible;" said
the statement, "to secure a board combining all necessary elements of ex
perience, ability and public confidence." The situation was made more
difficult, it is stated, by the decision
of the Manitoba Legislature to not cooperated with the other western provinces. This made it\certain' that
trading in wheat on the" Winnipeg Exchange would, continue, and men who
might have been available had tlie
proposed compulsory board applied to
all three provinces would not accept
the ' responsibility lor marketing the
crop of two provinces only..
Failure of wheat board plans for
the second' year in succession, will
leave the western wheat crop to be
marketed under existing machinery.
While there has been talk from time
to time of a voluntary pool, no definite steps have been -taken- in that
direction.   '

Trotzky Hurls Threat
At Great Britain
Bolsheviki Leader Directs Hate Toward  British and Italians
Moscow.���An attack on Great Britain, hints ol' a Russo-French rapprochement and a plea for "more
metal in our national character,"
marked an address by Leon Trotzky,
Soviet War Minister, before the all-
Russian congress of metal workers.
"If an ultimatum is presented to us,"
he exclaimed, referring to the recent
13ritisli_noies,- "let us create a detachment of airplanes. If a coup .d'etat
occurs in Bulgaria, lei us build another detachment of airplanes, and if
there is a coup d'etat in Persia build
more 'planes.
JI." Trotzky said Great Britain ami
Italy had, according to information at
hand, assisted in the coup d'etat in
Bulgaria, and the British had aided
in the nationalist overthrow in Persia. Declaring thafe%Russia's losses in
the world war were overwhelming,
greater than Britain's, Trotzky added:
"It was for this purpose, perhaps, that
Lord Curzon felt strong enough to deliver us his ten-day ultimatum.
Canadian Divorces Increase
Dominion    Statistics    Report    British
Columbia   Having   Greatest
Ottawa.���An enormous increase in
divorces throughout Canada in recent
years, and particularly since the war,
is shown by a bulletin just issued by
the Dominion Bureau of Statistics. In
1913, divorces granted in Canada nurii-
bered 5.9. In 191S, the number was
90. In 1919, the first year of peace,
the number jumped to 376, and in 1922
there were 544. British Columbia
with 138 had the highest number of
divorces in 1922, Alberta coming next
with 129, Manitoba had 97, Ontario 90
and Quebec only 6.
The causes for the increase in
divorces, says the^ bulletin, may be
found in the generally uns'ettling effect of the war period and the fact
that since 1918 the prairie provinces
have had power to grant divorce decrees in their own courts.
In Australia and New Zealand the
same tendency is observed, divorces
in the former country increasing.from
617 in-1916 to 1,051 in 1920, and in the
latter from 246 in 1916 to 660 in 1921.

Witness Asserts Profit Enhanced By
Sales to Arabs
London���Some remarkable evidence'
concerning the army and navy canteen board's dealings with the Arabs
iri Mesopotamia was given at the
governmental enquiry into the workings of the canteens. It was asserted
by one o'f the witnesses that whereas
the managers of the canteens had
been instructed to sell only to British
and Indian troops, they had also sold
to Arabs at one hundred per cent,
extra, the margin finding its way into
the managers' pockets.
Another assertion made was that
fourteen tons of butter had been sent
to Constanlinpole when there was
room for only one ton, the result being that most of the remainder was
spoiled. An ex-offlcer of the canteen
board, it was also alleged, had purchased goods for ��8,000, for which

Proposed Wheat Board
General- Manager of Grain Growers
Will Not Act
Winnipeg.���J. R. Murray, General
Manager of the United Grain Growers
Limited, announced that, two weeks
ago he had declined the offer of the
chairmanship of the proposed wheat
hoard; that the offer had not been
renewed, but that he was of the same
mind should he be approached again.
Premier Greenfield of Alberta, on behalf of himself and Premier Dunning
of Saskatchewan, made the offer, said
Mr. Murray, and the executive of his
comp"any-Jwere prepared; to grant him
a year's leave of absence should he
desire to accept.
Otiawa.���Picas for more branch
lines for the Canadian National, particularly in Quebec and the Marilimcs,
were made in the House.
The House is considering a recom-'
mendaiion covering proposed branch
line construction, a resolution was
adopted, and a bill based thereon
was given first reading. During the
discussion,' Hon. G. P. Graham, Minister of Railways, said thai believing
ihe. promises of the Government and 7
Parlianient in regard to the Hudson's
Bay Railway should bc carried out,
he would consider including an item
in the supplementary estimates in
this connection.
There was a long, and, at limes,
vigorous discussion, iu the House over
the resolution introduced by Hon. J.
A. Robb, Minister of Trade and Commerce, to provide for the control of
grain rates on the lake boats. The
resolution is thc result of thc report
of the Royal Commission on that subject, and the members of ihe commission came in  foi- criticism.
The resolution provided for control
of grain freight rates by the Board of
Grain Commissioners, and Hon. H. II.
Stevens' (Conservative, Varicouver
Centre), asked the minister why the.
grain commissioners were resorted to
to take care of this matter rather
than the Dominion Board of Railway
Hon. J. A.'Robb said it was felt
that the .grain commissioners, at the
head of the lakes, conversant with' tho
grain trade, were better fitted to
handle the matter intelligently than a'
board in Ottawa, far from the scene
of operations.
Mr. Stevens expressed the opinion .
thai the committee was being asked
to frame a law which purported to
do something which it did not do at
all. He thought thai the effect of the
bill- would ;be io heighten rates.
The Government could provide against
unreasonable increase by a vigorous
application of suspension of the'coast- ���
al laws.
, Mr. Robb said the Minister of Marine and Fisheries was providing for an
amendment which would give the Government, power to suspend the coastal
laws. It was felt, however, that the
Government, would have two levers
with which to prevent undue.enhancement of lake freight, "rates if the riieas-

The branch managers have complete and intimate knowledge of
each local situation and are in close

From almost every section of the
Prairies the report comes that during the, critical early period of
growth moisture has been, ample
for the grain.V . "Weather conditions

The following reference to the
Combination Mine, now operating,
is taken from the Bonndary Creek
Times published in Greenwood on
Sept. 12, 1896, Vol. 1, No. 1, aud
will be of interest to our many
"Mr. 0. E. Bartholomew, one of
the old-timers in the camp and the
original locator of the Providence,
ia now working on  tho Combination, a claim recently stocked  for
$600,000.    A  hundred  pounds of
rock, sampled from fche"edge of thiB
claim,     was     recently    sent    to
Spokane,  where it went-through
the process known as "bucking it.''
This   is   a     technical   expression
for 7 dividing     several    pounds
of  ' sampled   rock   into   a   small
parcel for assay purposes,,-so as to
ensure the7.proportionai. valuation
remaining  the   .same.     This    is
effected Vby .placing   the7 sample,
after It: has been well shaken up,
on a large open sheet; and shaking
it like sieve; the ore.is then divided
into  four quarters,   one- of these
undergoing the same process and
another division,  and  bo on  until
the 7r,equired amount is obtained,
The result, from the .Combination
assays;,were:.   Lead,   30 3-107per
cent., value1818.12; silver,'512 8/10
oz3., valueVat (58 cents (the price
at that time), 7 8348.70; gold, 320
ozs., value 866,15; total - value-per.
ton, $432.97. 7 This is a very satisr
factory showing,:but Mr/ Bartholomew   eays ; that   owing, to a rich
strike within, the last few days, the
assays   will   probably   run. much
higher. /The strike was.made at a
depth of 35 feet in the" shaft.    Mr.
Bartholomew brought in some of
the rock on Tuesday,  and if there
is  much. of. the  same, kind the
stockholders., will V have .very little
cause to regret their inyestmentB.^
.   Since the above date work haB
been   done  oh \ the  Combination
mine at different times in the shaft
when much richer   ore   was   en-,
countered.     A.   tunnel   was  also
starred to cross-cut and. intersect
the vein at a depth of 75 to 100
feet below the bottom of. the shaft.
Last fall the: Eholt   Mining   Go.
was formed, with C..E.  Bartholomew aa manager. ;_,,Thia. company
has assambled. machinery, consisting of a 8-drill compressor, 75 b.p.
motor; water is Sakeci but of Eholt
creek and run by gravitation to the
compressor; 1000 foot pipe line was
laid  to   the   tunnel. aiid machine
drills installed all of. which, are in,
operation.   Six men are.employed
and the tunnel  ia  going forward
with every prospect of encounter-;
ing the same character of ore that
the shaft has produced.
Tom Mix in a New
Thriller "Just Tony"
Lariat, spurs, chaps and saddle.
They're all coming1 to the Greenwood Theatre on Sa t., June  30th.
And the star that will use them
is Tom Mix, from William Fox's
famous fold. For action, aim and
accuracy "Just Tony," based on
Max Brand's novel, "Alcatraz,"
will surpass much of his past woik,
and that's saying a saddle-bag full.
This new vehicle for the stalwart, stimulating star will prove
entertainment of the highest order.
For many years it has been Mix's
most ardous endeavor to feature
his sprightly steed, "Tony," in a
filmplay, and Mr.. Fox has finally
consented. 80.. Tom . went about
his performance in front. of a
camera with an enthusiasm born
of an inspiration for love of the
animal which haB accompanied him
through much of his life and most
of his hazardous episodes on the
Western plateau.
Aside from its stirring.incidents
and absorbing detail, the story contains an au usual scenic background
that adds charm to the narrative.
...The government has appointed
W. A. McAdam,'". assistant 'deputy
minister of finance, as secretary
and assistant ..to Agent-General F.
C. Wade -in London. A strong
campaign.will be.carriedTon- to interest Britishers in settling in British Columbia and directing/ capital

will tour the province1 before leaving for London, in;' order to familiarize himself with .- conditions
here in every branch of, industry.
