Mining Notes   '.
Victoria���How 25 years of search
for a vein of silver lead ore dis
(covered on Wallace Mountain,
Beaverdell, in 1S99 was success-
folly terminated lust year, and
how the property has since been
profitably Worked by a group of
Victoria business men, was learned
here on Friday, Nov. 7feh, when
Roy Clothier, president, reported
to the owners the result 'of hia recent trip to tha mine.
Clothier said that the men who
sought fehe vein for a quarter of a
century on' the Beaver must have
come within a few feet, or even
inches of the ore in the search of
pits that were dug.
"We have the big vein four feet
from one of these pit holes," Clothier said. "At tihat point put of
a bole 40 feet long,* 12 feet 'deep,
there has been taker} out thw summer 100 tons of silver-lead ore,
whieh has brought $15,000 from
the smelter. The option was taken
on the property on March 4 thiB
year and work started May 1. Two
tunnels have been put in and the
length of the vein discovered to be
1700 feet. All the machinery,
compressor, drills and camps have
been paid for already.
The first distribution of earnings
will be made nest February and
dividends will be paid ab the rate
of between 600 and 1000 per cent a
year,-ife is expected. The mine is
now producing two high grade care
a.month whieh_will give-fehe owners a return of 100 per cent a
month.
"From the ore wo havo in sight,"
said Clothier, "there is no reason
why we should not be mining on
that vein and paving dividends for
15 years at least.'.'   .
Stock in the mine is all held
locally'and' is not for sale to fehe
public.
O.' D. Lampman and Harry
Iieife!, of Vancouver^, were in town
on Saturday and Sunday and1 inspected mining property that they
are interested Tn. They were
highly pleased'with1 the showings
on their property. They were accompanied by Mre.. Lampman and
Mrs. Keif el.
Masquerade Dance
Very Largely Attended
A new find of high grade ore
wag made in the Combination mine
a few days ago. ���
Hunters Be Careful
Many fatal accidents occur each
year during the hunting season,
many "of which are caused~ by
careless hunters shooting at- any
moving object. -The following is
a story of au American hunter
who blazed away with his eyes
closed and, fortunately for him it
was a deer and1 not one of his
fellow hunters he had shot:  .   _.',
"I'm such a punk shot," said
a prominent Van Xuys, Cal.", real
estate dealer recently',."that even
as a boy I've never gone hunting
in my life. My two expert nim-
rod friends cajoled mc into going
with them, and I consented under protest."
"I was standing in a lonely
spot in a rain drizzle, wishing I
was home. Of a sudden, something came tearing from a small
ravine and I threw up my gua,
shut both eyes and blazed awaj-.
What proved-to be a big buck,
leaped into the air, gave a few
kicks, and there he was."1
The Seventh Annual War "Veterans Masquerade Dance on Monday evening iu the Masonic Hill
proved a great success, it being a
very brilliant afli-iir. About 350
people attended coming from all
over tiie district. Tho,net receipts
from fehe dance, which was turned
over to the Hospital, amounted, to
897 55. Bush's. 4-piece orchestra
kept the crowd merry with their
lively music and were very liberal
in responce to  the  many  encores.
The judges, H. J. Purkis, W.
Skilton and H. W. R. Moore had a
very difficult task in selecting the
winners and their awards were
greeted with applause. The prize
winners were:
Besfodressed lady,   Mre.   T.   W.'

century.
Best dressed lady, 2nd prize,

In fehe drawing competition Ed.
Pope won $5 00 worth of Fuller's
brushes.
Mrs. J. H. Bush,"1 Miss Euefby,
Chas. Bubar and Mr. Diamond
acted as judges for the prize
waltz and their' decision was
met with general approval.
No easy task was the catering feo
such a large crowd and to the
.Pythian Sisters much praise is due
for the proficient 'way^ln which"
they-served the good things to eafe.
The new system of selling tbe supper tickets avoided crowding in the,
lobby of the banquet hall. The
net proceeds will be about 650.
The Veterans are to be com-'
mended on the very able way in
which they conducted the dance,
the grand march and all special
events taking place on time. They
worked hard and their efforts were
uot in vain for it can be safely said
that it was one of the best dances
held in Greenwood in a long titue.'

Motor Cars
And Prosi3erity
in
Huge Amount of Capital Invested
Motor Cars in Cnnadn
The people of Ontario alone possess as many cars as: do the 80,000,000
peoplo living in Germany, Holland,
Denmark, .Sweden and Norway combined. The people ol" Saskatchewan
alone own twice as many cars as do
lhe people of Denmark and three times
as many as do the people of Holland
with a population of nearly seven million people.
All this has cost money. All this
has had to be paid for. Capital was
used ln the purchase of the cars and
earnings spent in their upkeep. On
top of that hundreds of millions havo
been spent in building billiard table
highways. It ls announced today
that the Ontario Government has ordered 300,000 motor licenses for next
year.' That number will not- be
enough. Nearly half the cars of ihe.
Dominion are in this province. In
1900 there were practically no cars.
Iii 3910 there were -1,230 cars in Ontario. Now there are 308,693. In all
Canada there were S.9G7 in 1910, and
now In the Dominion thcy number
562,121.
All the capital invested in cars ln
which people now get about, all the
money spent iu their upkeep and Operation, all the money spent in making
such highways as, but for motor cars,
would not have been built, comes out
of the wealth and earnings of the people. If spent in this way,- this 392S
way, It is not available for spending
in some former 1910 way, and nobody
oan'eat his cuke and expect to'still,
have it on his plate. ,, '. ' .
Instead- of grumbling;, a Canadian
��� should be thankful that his' taxes
are less than those paid in the Mother-
. land or the ��ister countries of Austra*
, lia and New Zealand, and he should
not close Ills eyes to th.e good -fortune
of his countrymen-in being able, each
year, ro-invest millions' and more millions ln the new and marvellous com-
ioh. and luxury of.the motor car.���

Underground  Fires  In  Britain
Fumes Frorr. Coal Pits Cause Discomfort  In  Some Towns
In a score of different places in the
British ' Isles underground flrus are
smouldering.
Some have been alight for many-
years ancl are fair imitations of volcanoes on a small scale. The fuel
in most cases is coal.
A pit between Ayr -and Girvan
caught fire in .1817 and was still burning at the beginning of the present
century. "The Steaming Bug," the
country folk call it.
Landore, au important junction station near Swansea, was for some time
rendered useless by nn underground
(Ire said to be burning in old chemical
and metal refuse. The platforms
were hot and tiie whole place was poisoned by fumes. The town of Dudley has suffered severely lrom a slow
burning going on deep beneath its
foundations, wliich tit one time throw
out fumes of deadly gas, half-poisoning
many people.
It is easy to understand coal catching fire, but more diflicult to comprehend land blazing up. Vet this phenomenon happens quite frequently. Some
years ago there was a remarkable outbreak at H.tlsall Moss, near Birkdale.
A potato farmer piled unslaked lime
on one of his fields and set fire to the
peaty soil that had been rendered
bone-dry by a month of suushine. A
wind got up and soon three acres were
ablaze, the fire being deep into the
ground.

- Rat_ Is Good Fisherman
A traveller returning to New York

Proper Use of the Union
Should Be Extended
The 'Onion Jack flew from the tower
of the Parliament Buildings at .Ottawa on the day of the visit of the
Interparliamentary Union, and the Ottawa Citizen is moved to ask why it
cannot fly every day. , "Is there any
law against it flying while the buildings are not in their regular use?" it
asks. "An electric sign, 'Welcome,'
shone from the facade of the general
post office on the nighc of the same
day.. Cannot this also be'a permanent feature of the city's, amenities?"
. The proper use of the Hag should he
extended and encouraged in Canada.
There is a well established principle,
as to what Hag to use antl where, l>ui
there'surely can he no"objection to the
use of Lho national emblem on the
country's Parliament Buildings. Some
of the provinces enforce tlie' Hying of
the flag daily at each school, and the
lesson ls salutary-onthe younger generation, and*" not lost on older people.
The Hudson's Bay Company hoists-its
flag at its 'remote trading posts, and
thereby, gives a suggestion of its-authority and dignity lo the Indians and
half-breeds.
; Canadians, with their natural modesty, have been prone .to, ignore the
display of flags as an educational or
emotional appeal. What should be
discouraged,is-the partisan use, of the
flag for election,purposes, since'no one
party or group possesses all the
patriotism and genius for public service.���Toronto (._lobe.       " -

Reading Trains the  Mind
Necessity of Teaching Mass of People
How to Read
Speaking before the annual conference of the British Libraries' Association, Principal Grant. Robertson, of
Birmingham University, dealt with fhe
necessity of teaching the mass of the
people how to read. People have
been taught to decipher print, but- only
a small proportion, of the population,
said Principal Robertson, understand
the art of reading intelligently, or to
gain any spiritual inspiration from llie
mental food which filters into the
mind. The untrained mind is full ot
water-light compartments that must
be broken down if knowledge is to be
co-ordinated. Without co-ordination
of knowledge, men are adrift, on a sea,
chartless and rudderless.
The slums o'f the mind, Principal
Robertson said, are as degrading as
city slums���both are blots on civilization���and ho advocates that all public
libraries should undertake courses of
lectures for the guidance of those desirous of improving their m,ental condition. It was not suggested that fhe
lectures should attempt to impart, the
technical information on the subject
in' hand, but rather to stimulate the
desire.; for knowledge and furnish
guidance in the course/ of reading
necessary to accomplish the purpose.
Any scheme that aims to encourage
a widespread reading of good books
deserves consideration. Reading,
"just to pass the time,'' is one of the
vices of the day, and the practice utterly unfits the subject for sustained
thinking. Principal Robertson's suggestion, is designed to com'-nt this
tendency and to lead into ��� .casanf
paths of literature, opening un a new
heaven and a new earth.
The wealth of available material,is.
so vast that it bewilders the uniuialed,'
and It is for this reason that expert
advice should be available for all who
would enlarge their vision of life. The
search for the hidden riches contained in books offers a romantic adventure which i ever /ends, for the riches
are inexhaustible.���Regina Post.
Great Dam In Egypt Irrigates Over
30,000 Acres Of Desert
Monuments to the skill of' British
engineers and contractors are spread
over the four quarters of the globe.
Thc latest, and one of the greatest���
the Makwar dam, on the Blue Nile,
250 miles south of Khartoum, Egypt���
will be officially opened by one of King
George's sous in January next. The
dam, the construction of which involved (he expenditure of several million
pounds, is already fulfilling its allotted
lask . for the contractor���Lord Cow-
dray's firm, who were under a penalty
jof $500,000 a day if water was not
flowing over the desert by July last.
The construction, of the dam was
under the direction of one of the
partners, Sir F. T. Hopkins, an engineer of great experience. Over 20,000
men were employed on the work,
which could only be carried ori for
seven months each year���from November to,July, for during the other five
months the Blue Nile is In flood." The
dam is two miles long, and creates
a lake F>0 niiles long, two miles wide
and 5(5 feet deep. From it runs a
canal and nearly 10,000 miles of
waterways, which irrigate over 30,000
acres of desert. Cotton fields now
flourish where a few'months ago there
was nothing but waterless desert, and
as a result of the building of the dam,
the output of the Egyptian cotton is
greatly increased.

PREMIER KING
DECIDES TO MEET
PARLIAMENT
.
i
���
Ottawa.���li. is officially announced'
that Premier King, will meet parliament. The House of Commons will
he called at thc earliest possible date.
Premier King's statement reads:
"After careful consideration    of   the
, constitutional precedents and their
bearing upon the situation which has
arisen as a result of Jho general election, the cabinet decided unanimously that it is-their constitutional duty to
meet parliament at the earliest possible moment, regard being had for
the legal requirements with respect to
the tinie .necessary for, the return, of
the writs and tlie oflicial gazetting ol
members who have been elected.
"The latestf official returns having
made it apapre.nt "that as a result of
the general ejection held on October
29, no one of the, participating .political parties will, of itself, have a clear
majority iu the- House of Commons
.when parliament assembles, it became
my duty as prime minister to acquaint1
His Excellency the Governor-General
with the situation-and.to: advise His
Excellency" as to" the course^which
should, bo pursued. ' After-several interviews with His Excellency at which
the position brought about- by the recent general election was fully discussed and' all alternatives presented,
t have laken'the responsibility of advising His Excellency to summon parliament for the    earliest'  practicable
t date in, order to ascertain.the attitude
of the parliamentary representatives
towiirds the very important question
raised by the numerical position of the
respective political parties.     His Ex-
' cellency has been pleased lo accept
this advice.
"In the interval until parliament assembles, it is the intention of the government to' refrain from making appointments beyond such as are essential for the proper carrying on of the
public business.
"ln tho present situation, there are
three possible courses pf procedure,
each of which has been carefully considered by thc cabinet.
(1) That IVts, Excellency be asked to
grant an immediate dissolution of.parliament.
(2) That Hi;. Excellency bo asked to
raiil upon the leader o& the largest
poitical-group -to- form.a government.
(3)'That His Excellency bo asked to
summon    parliament   at the earliest
practicable date for the purpose afore
,. mentioned.
"With respect to an immediate dis
solution, it was felt that it was not in
the interests of the country to occasion
the turmoil and expense of another
general election until at' least parliament had been afforded an opportunity
of giving expression to 'their views."

seems to. nie v that nothing can stop
Canada playing a prominent part in

Mr. Camsell was the. principal
speaker at the seventh annual "western
meeting of the Canadian Institute "of
Mining and Metallurgy. ���'.
Another point stressed .by the deputy minister was that tho development of the mining industry would
inevitably lead to-the thorough agricultural development of the country.
Dr. Camsell reviewed the mineral
trade' of Canada and declared -the
future would see tlie United States and
the world sin general looking to Canada's mineral deposits as the ; last

FREE LEGAL AID
IS A NECESSITY
M11EP00R
Montreal.���Difficulties which confront tlio pc-or when in heed of legal
redress were dealt with in an address
delivered by G. H. Corbett, secretary
director of the Society for the Protection of Women and Children, before a.
Montreal conference ou social work.
Mr. Corbett took the stand that under existing conditions the poor cannot
get adequate justice before the courts,
the reason being court fees and costs,
���which prohibited access to the courts
by the poor, court delays "and lawyers'
fees.
To . protect the "poor nnd to nave
them from oppression, free legal aid
was a necessity, held Mr. Corbett.
The lawyers' fee was a fundamental
difficulty, he said, and countless
thousands, being unable to pay these
sums,, were denied just'ice.

' Montreal.���That "the people of the

power" in the next parliament was the
opinion expressed here by Henri
Bourassa, Independent mehiber-elect
for Labelle and proprietor of Le Devoir.
In commenting on the election, Mr.
Bourassa added: -  '
"We are going more and more towards a government by groups. 11
is more and more clearly necessary to
send to parliament independent deputies. The country needa representatives who are,.better than,blind"partisans, people capable of- freeing ihem-
selve.'s fron the spirit of party, of
looking beyond local or provincial interest.
"As I have said over and over again,
I do not mean Co be merely the deputy
of Labelle. 1 will support' any policy
that can legitimately reconcile the interests of the west and those of the
east. { do not-mean to be tho man
of a province or of a country."
Le Devoir editorially declares that
the elections appear merely to have
brought to a head a crisis for which
there is as yet no solution.
"The situation," if says, "is singularly complicated by the fact that the
man who is at the head of the largest
parliamentary group has not. succeeded in securing the election in Quebec
of one single personal" candidate���with
the possible exception of Mr. Perley.
"We'are at any rate in the midst of
a crisis, with the perspective in u not
distant future of a now' generaj (-lection. - -

colonial and foreign loans in London.
"The old full freedom of the, money
niarket will. be restored," said' tho
chancellor and the city of London
must be responsible for using it wisely and soberly. Over-lending, such

C. B. Foster, passenger traffic
manager of the Canadian Pacific,
states that the success of the crop
in the West this year will make
money more free and is bound to
stimulate travel between Canada
and the Old Country. To handle
the expected increased volume of
traffic, his _ company, he states,
will run special trains early in
December connecting directly with
the company's Atlantic liners, sailing from the winter port of Saint
John, N.B. These liners sail on
dates that are calculated to get
passengers home to any point in the
British Isles or the near continent
in plenty of time for Christmas.
