A quail killed in a Kansas
wheat field bad the remains of
2,000 Hessian flies in its craw, and
the Hessian fly causes a loss of
820,000,000 to the wheat growers
of the country every year.
It is not enough to protect the
songbirds. I It is high time to look
to the future of the quail, one of
the most beneficial of all birds, lot.
the sportsmen and his dog, the
snare, the trap and the net reduce
him to total extinction.
The quail's decreasing numbere
make it apparent that he cannot be
saved from extinction, if classed
only as a game-blfcd. He is a song
bird as well, a pre-eminent insectivorous bird, such as nearly all the
States protect at all seasons.   Why
not then give him peace aad security by placing him on the song-j (GuiidHall), presented

T. J. Corwin came in last week
with a carload of ore from the
Aberdeen mine, near Merritt.
Two more carloads- will arrive
I'this week from the same mine.
Some of the Aberdeen ore runs as
high as 60 per cent, copper. The
freight rate on ore from Merritt
to Greenwood is about $3.50 a
ton.
A police magibtrate -when paid
a big salary by the taxpayers, for
practically doing nothing, should
be loyal to his town and neighbors. When he descends* to
petty, mean, sneaking and spiteful acts, in an attempt to ruin
local business men, and worthy
citizens who are holding positions of trust and responsibility
he becomes a companion creature to the viper that bites the
hand that feeds it, and the bird
that befouls its own nest.
Canada Copper

Barkerville has put on a  night-
British
recommended
The most recent report from the
Canada Copper Corporation stateB
that there has been' developed to
date at its Copper Mountain property approximately 10,900,000 tonB
of ore of an average grade of 1.75
per cent, copper, or 35 pounds per
ton, with an estimated recoverable
value of 20c. per ton in gold and
silver.
The erection of a plant of 2.000
tons daily capacity to treat the
ores at Copper Mountain,
Columbia has been
by the company's consulting engineer. With the completion of
this plant, the company, will be
able to produce at the rate of 60,-
000 pounds of copper daily, or
22,6000,000 pounds per annum.
The estimated cost of production
ip 8^e. per pound of copper. This
would leave an average net profit
of 6ic. per pound, or $1,474,000
per annum, with copper selling at
15c. per pound. This would insure earnings at the rate of 91c.
per Bhare, with all the bonds converted into stock including the last
isssue of $2,000,000.
It is estimated that a maximum
of $2,000,000 will be required to
place the property on a 2,000-ton
basiB. This will include concentrator, power plant, general development work and also complete
payment on claims nndsr option.
All ores will be extracted by means
of a tunnel; approximately 50 per
cent.' by the open-cut glory-hole
method. It is estimated that the
cost of production during this
stage will not exceed S.l c. for copper after crediting gold aud silver
values, and the cost of production
from the deeper oi;es will not exceed 10^c. cost, the profit will be
reduced to 67c. per share.
Canada Copper has deve^ped a
fair Bized mine, and with the successful financing of its new bond
issue it bids fair ts euter tbe ranks
of the low-piiced copper issues in
the near future as a dividend paying proposition.
As an evidence of their faith in
the successful outcome of the Canada Copper Corporation's Copper
Mountain property, the Canadian
Pacific engineers, who have kept

"The boys and girls attending the
Greenwood Public School aiid the
schools in the district are doing
"their little bit" by making a
monthly subscription to the Canadian Patriotic Fund, the little
tots and older pupils alike participating in this effort.
The monthly subscription which
is limited to 25c, is entirely voluntary and must be the result of
some act of self-denial. That is,
it must be given from their pocket
money or may be taken from any
money they may earn by performing some little piece of work. It
is emphasised very clearly to the
children thai) they must not ask
their parents for a contribution to
their Patriotic Fund.
The money obtained in this way
from the various schools will be
handed to the Principal of the
Greenwood School, and will tnen
be deposited monthly in the b__nk
to the credit of th.e schools.
Although the fund was started
only in the last week of January,
the sen of $10.20 was raised and
placed to its credit.
Every month " a report of the
money raised by the various
schools will be Published in- The
Ledge. Tbe fund which was introduced by Inspectot Miller and
has the support of the Trustees is
in vogue throughout the district,
and it is hoped that Greenwood
and district will live up ' io Kb
reputation and come out witih flying colours.
Boil the Water
Dr. Arnott has suggested to The
Ledge that the attention of the
citizens be called to the importance
and neoessity of boiling all water
used for drinking purposes during
the period of .water shortage.
When water has to be carried and
the utensils in which it is cat tied
are often taken tip at random and
iu a hurry, and when the water is
left standing in various tubs, pails
and vessels, uncovered and exposed
to dust, "there is a very great
danger of "contamination and possible'' disease. Every household
should carefully boil up a tcettle
full of water every day���boil it for
twenty minutes, then set it apart
in clean covered jars in a cold
place. When well cooled it will
be found quite palatable and safe
for drinking purposes.

Mike Walsh has returned to this
section from near Creston, where
he is interested in a copper proposition that he has been working on
for a number of years.
Dan McPhail was down a few
days ago from the Bell, in the
Jackson basin, and is enthusiastic
about the possibilities of that property. He states that at one point
there is a good five feet of solid
ore in sight, and that all the indications are there that go to show
the possibility of it being a mine.
For mauy years the Bell, like
many another promising property
in this district, has lain idle, with
no one, apparently having gumption enough to get busy and endeavor to stir up something. The
late Geo. Hughes did some work
on the claim in the early days, but
at that time the zinc contents in
the ore proved a handicap. Some
Sandon leasers tackled it about
ten years ago, but they lacked
capital. Outside of that it is evident that very little has been done.
Mr. McPhail is strongly of the
opinion that Charles F. Caldwell is
entitled to a great deal of praise
for the energetic way in which he
is starting out to secure capital for
the development of mining propositions in this district. The Bell
was examined last week on behalf
of Spokane capitalists by Y. W.
Williams, of Spokane, whose report on a mining proposition is
said to carry a great deal of weight.
He was associated with J. P.*
Graves In the famous Granby enterprise, the success of which is
one of the brightest things in the
annals of British Columbia mining.

Now that new Parliament
buildings have to be ereeted, it
would be a good time to move the
capital of Canada, from Ottawa to
Winnipeg. The west will soon be
the greater part of Canada, and
Winnipeg is more centrally situated than Ottawa.
Fiio_-t our perch in the mountains it looks as though the Parliament buildings in Ottawa were
destroyed by an enemy, a fanatic,
or gross carlessness. If by an
enemy then look for the unexpected. Look within the corral, for
gold is mighty, and enough of it
with some people will -bring to
pass almost anything that is pos
sible. 	
In forcing the present police
magistrate upon the people of
Greenwood, and making the taxpayers pay his salary, the B. G.
Government is doing this city an
injustice, and not gaining any
0 edit for itself, as a "business"
organization. It surely is not
bMSinesB for a government to force
any community to pay hundreds
of dollars, in Order to hold a police
court two or three times a year.
Ife looks like rotten politics to permit such an injustice to the taxpayers of this city. You cannot
win by opposing the wishes of the
people. If the government wishes
to acquire and maintain a reputation for business, it will immediately look into the police magistrate situation at Greenwood.
Better be warned openly by a
friend, than stabbed in the back
by an enemy.
There are five Tuesdays in this
