On Salisbury Plains
_AL Morrison of the_Mother_Lode
has received a letter from .Tommy
Lyons, who is with the Canadian
contingent   on   Salisbury   Plains,
England.    He says that the Canadians expect to be at the front by
the   middle  of  January.     After
leaving Quebec it took the contingent 17  days to   find   the   little
island, and  then they landed in a
rain storm, and the _?ame storm is
still doing business. - Lyons says
that they have in England the cutest little trains that ever rolled on
rails.    Little   in size   but big -in
speed.   The Canadians have moved
around   considerably,    living   in
tents, huts and Buffering from wet
clothes at times.   The drilling is
harder than  it is at the Mother
Lode, and sometimes the Tommies
work two shifts.    The eight hour
law is not observed at Salisbury.
The people of England are good
to the soldiers.    They visit them
often and  send them, plum puddings    and    other  good  things.
Lyons toofca trip to London where
he found that * nothing was   too
good for. a Canadian.    IE a Canadian stood at a street corner for a
minute    you    could   hardly   get
through the crowd wanting something from Canada.    Lyons says
that the boys are all eager fc get
into the trenches and   fire a few
shots like tha Mother Lode had
occasionally.     Tommy  sends his
best regards to all hie friends.
Pat Burns, the cattle "king, has
promised an annual donation of
$2,000 to the Tranquille Sanitarium. '        ^, -.   ,

This Christmas some ofv the

the result of extensive advertising.
It is reported that many foreigners pay for their gobs, and that is

Around Oroville
Within a radius of a few miles
are such well' known properties as
the Rich Bar, Golden King. Sterling, Lone Pine, Caaba, Owasco,
the C. P. House holdings besides
numerous others. It has been
demonstrated beyond the shadow
of a doubt that the claimB named
have pay ore, and pay ore in large
quantities. Recently an assay on
ore taken from Dr. House's property gave a return of 40 per cent
in copper. This is one of the most
recent strikes in this neighborhood.
The location is an old one, bnt the
high grade copper ore has only
lately been encountered. Samples
of ore from these several properties mentioned are onv exhibition
about town. They are not selected
samples for exhibition purposes,
merely the general run of ore being extracted. In any country
under the sdn where mining iB
carried on successfully this ore
would attract immediate and especial attention, and no difficulty
would be experienced in raising
funds to develop the claims. In
time money will be forthcoming to
open up the leads about here, and
when such work is done paying
mines are sure to follow.���-Oroville

After the 400
The Chronic Grouch has the following in the Kaslo Kootenaian.
"I do no pose as a guardian of
the public morals, nor even of the
morals of the rising generation,
but I do consider in the rising
generation there is altogether too
much of a tendency to frivolity instead of a consideration of the
more serious things of life. I
understand that in Kaslo, when
little So-and-so gives a birthday
party, or something of that nature,
the function is not considered complete unless dancing or even card
playing is indulged in. This is
certainly a nice way in which to
pull youngsters np to a realization
of a sense of their responsibilities.
Dancing is a highly immoral sort
of pastime, and I believe that the
various card games indulged in by
the leaders of fashion are worse.
Bridge, progressive .whist, five
hundred and all the rest of them
are mere polite forms of gambling.
Why the law makes a distinction
between playing eluff for drinks in
a saloon and playing bridge for a
prize in a private house, I am unable to understand, unlets <it so
happens that politicians do not
consider the saloon vole of any
[more consequence. ,

The Canadians got into action
last week, and a despatch to the
Montreal Star says:
"I am told that the Canadians
went into action where yards
count, in an advanced trench of
the British lines at a village which
was vigorously shelled by Germans
and partly in ruins. Another
trench on the right of the little
town, it is believed by my informant, is held by mounted French
cavalry. The German snipers had
ensconced themselves in farm
building to the northeast, making
it extremely hazardous for our
supplies to reach our advanced
positions.
" 'About 20 of the Canadians,'
continued my informaut, 'managed to gain the ruins at the extreme end of tbe village during
Christmas night, and when daylight came they accounted for
pratically all of the German*snipers and dashed back into safety
before the German artillery fire
was directed feo the stronghold.'
"My guardsman thought there
was only a section of the regiment
actually in fehe trenches and that
the main portion was still in reserve when he was wounded."
Correspondent Hill says the
Patricias had been billeted Christmas eve at a little French village
10 miles from the firing line. Here
they also spent part of Christmas
morning. The French people had
arranged special Christmas festivities for the Canadian soldiers
bufe the order came that they were
to march northward in support of
certain guard regiments as it was
feared that fehe Germans might
take advantage of the fog to make
a Christmas day attack. The
Canadians cheerfully abandoned
all hope of a Christmas dinner in a
practically peaceful village- for a
chance to get into fehe trenches.
The correspondent in conclusion
says:
"Another thing my informant
emphasized was the coolness and
carefulness of the Canadians. He
declared they all seemed to be
picked shots. One thing seemed
certain and that is that so fine an
impression has the regiment created by its bearing, discipline and
condition that the rest of the contingent will be doubtly welcome
by the rest of the Empire's army."
Windermere says in a despatch
to fehe Calgary Herald:
"A well known Canadian railway man gives me the following
narrative from" a British "officer
from the front with whom he
spent Christmas: "At our base
in France we had an elderly German among our prisoners. Our
treatment of him evidently was so
different from expectations that
one day he made the astonishing
request that he be allowed to return to the German lines to fetch
his son who was enduring terrible
hardships in the German trenches.
We told him it was ridiculous.
For one thing how did we know
that he would ever return. However he seemed so sincere and so
deeply moved at the thought of
his sons position that we let him
go. He came back, thouga in
two days, bringing not only his
son but fifty other Germans.
Their joy at being prisoners was a
mixture of pathos and comedy."
I believe in the spirit of peace,
and in sole and absolute reliance
ou troth and the application of it
to the hearts and consciences of the
people. I do not believe that the
weapons of liberty ever have been,
or can be, the weapons of despotism. I know that those of despotism are the sword, the revolver, the
cannon, the bombshell; and therefore, the weapon to which tyrants
cling and upon which they depend
are not the weapons for me, as a
Mend of liberty.���W. L. Garrison.
