Messrs. O. H. Schultz, N.' Johnston and E. Johnston have been
quietly doing some developing work
for some time on three claims they'
staked last fall ou tbe Commonage,

The claims are all on the same lead,
and are named The Lmky One,

The lead is extremely well defined,

that they have made a find of great
value. A good deal of prospecting
was done in that district several
years ago, bnt thiB is an entirely

With the recent promising development at Monashee, the hydraulic placers at Siwash Creek,

The Granby
It   is   a   matter of regret that
Parker Williams, M.L.A,  Bhonld
have used his place in the Legisla-"
ture ht Victoria to make wholesale charges against mining companies of reaping a profit oat of
tbe hospital dues charged up against   their   employees.     Had    Mr.
Williams investigated the truth of
his charges before making them,
we are certain, from onr knowledge
of his desire to discharge his public
duties faithfully,  that  he   would
never have made the statements
attributed to him.   So far as the
Granby      Consolidated     Mining,
Smelting and Power   Company is
concerned, the management has always been credited wifeh a desire- to
treat   the   company's   employees
fairly; and few companies operating in the Province have so creditable a record in this respect, for,
both at Phoenix and Grand Forks,
there is an annual deficit in  connection with the operation of the
hospitals at these places,  which is
taken care of by this company; bo
that,  instead of making a profit
from the dollar charged the men
fehe Company is afe an actual loss
with respect to this fee.
The Granby Company's operations in   British   Colnmbia  have
been attended wifeh most creditable
results, both as feo its own operations and as to its enterprise' in the
development   of the  mineral   resources   of   the  Province.     Tbe
Company's policy, in operating- its
Hidden Creek mine,  and re-open-
in_r its Grand Forks plant to tide
its employees over a time when it
could not operate profitably nnder
the disorganized state of the copper market, was of a most' public* -
spirited   character,   deserving- of
recognition not only by. its employ- -
ees and  by the< public generally.,, v
but particularly by members of the
Provincial     Legislature. ���Mining'
Gold Diggings
The Kettle Falls correspondent
to the Colville Statesman-Index
says: ' 'The excitement in the gold
diggings along the Colnmbia river
continues to increase. Over forty
men were washing for gold last
week. This includes six men from
Okanagan, British Columbia and
three from Spokane. Twenty
years ago the panning resulted in
many thousand dollars. N. B.
Wheeler who was managing a drug
business at that time handled a
considerable amount of it. One of
our prominent merchants,, who has
had some experience in mining,
claims that the bed of the river is
covered with gold, but it is too
rugged to be dredged."
Monashee Mine
The Vernon people are desirous
of having a road built through Fire
Valley, connecting the road at
Monashee with the one from Edge-
wood. Mining looks promising in
that district. It is [likely that a
100 stamp mill will be built at tbe
Monashee mine. This winter more
than $15,000 has been spent on
tunnel work, and a big lead of ore
has been fonnd 200 feet from the
surface. More machinery will be
installed and th6 force of miners
increased." Other mines will likely
be developed on both Bides of the
Monashee, and in time there should
be quite a mining camp in that
will in future experience none of
the difficulty of the past in negotiating the river afe this point. Over
a year ago thousands of tons of
rock and debris were precipitated
into the river at Hell's Gate
through the blasting operations
conducted by the Canadian North
era Railway, in the construction of
their right- of-way. This company
will defray fehe cost of the work.

Thkri- are too many pinheads in
this province who howl   at   any
man, who wishes to push this province, wonderfully rich as it is in
almost untouched natural resources,  into   the  position   it should
occupy in the eyes of the world.
The pinheads who shout against
progression and enterprise are in
the class of chubbers who sit in the
shade with their mouths open, expecting birds  to come along and

themselves, and knock those who
try to build up the country.  Many
of these blue ruin claquers are now
roaring   because    Dick   McBride
wants to help the P. G. E. railway  with  a loan.     This is   just
what B. C.  wants.    We  are the
coming country and need  all the

railways, this    golden    province
would still be a home only for gold

Let Dick go on with hi3 good work.
He is too big a man to be understood by the little   fellows   with
knife    blade    mentalities,     who
vibrate    the   ozone   by   shouting
Wolf! a la gramaphone.    The following extract from a Boston paper
is refreshing to those who love the
optimistic spirit:
"The United States i& familiar
with the complaint of overbuilding, overexpansion.    The entire
West has been admonished, cautioned,   warned   by    the   East
against giving too much  rein to
its energies. The east of Canada
.is today admonishing, cautioning
warning British Columbia along
the old familiar lines.    The fact
is, however, British Columbia is
doing   precisely what thinking
people throughout the two nations are wishing all the provinces and states, would do.   Nobody questions the character of
the improvement the province is
making.     Everybody    admits,
must admit,  that the improvement must be made if British
Columbia would be prepared for
the expansion that the growth of
the entire Pacific Northwest will
force npon it tomorrow, next day
or the day after.    And thoughtful people realize that it is better
to do quickly that which in any
event must be done for the province  inevitably.   Not  a mile
will be added, they know, to the
transportation  facilities of British Columbia that will not increase its debt-bearing and debt-
paying ability.   Not a mile will
be added that will not enhance
to some degree the value of every
square foot  and  every acre of
^land now open or to be opened
in  the  province  to the home-
meeker or home-maker.
Ife is refreshing and encouraging  to  find  British   Columbia
fighting back depression with enterprise, the most potent weapon
it can use under the circumstances.    If it is going into debt,  its
debts will not be paid in the dull
times that are upon Canada now,
but in the good times that are
coming.     Because the province
has not permitted its energies to
flag or its com age to fail in the
period of business recession, but,
on the contrary, has been steadied and impelled by faith in itself, it will be all tbe better prepared for the return of proeeper-
ity, and it will not have impaired its credit by multiplying its

About fifty men are now employed on the various properties
being worked by fehe Standard Silver-Lead. These are divided
among five different camps.
An unconfirmed rumor going
around town has it that the Bluebell is going to resume operations
shortly, but nofe on as large a scale
as formerly. S. S. Fowler, manager of the property, leturned recently from an extended trip.
Sandon has pulled through the
winter in better shape than any of
the silver-lead camps of fehis district, a very good force of men being kept steadily at work during
the season. All the other camps
are showing increased activity, and
if the Standard, at Silverton, and
the Bluebell, at Siondel, were now
operating, the war would not be
felt very much in this section.���

struggle for national life. We

We see thousands of assemblages,
and hear the appeal of orators; we
see the pale cheeks of women and
the flushed faces of men; and in
those assemblages we see all the
dead whose dust we have covered
deep with flowers.
We lose sight of them no more.
We are with them when they enlist in the great army of freedom.
We see them part with those they
love.   Some are walking for the
last  time in quiet,  woody places
with the maidens they adore.    We
hear the whisperings and.the sweet
vows of eternal love as they linger-
ly part forever.    Others are  bending over cradles, kissing babes thafe
are asleep.   Some are receiving fehe
blessings of old men.   Some are
parting with   mothers   who   hold
them   and   press   them   to   their
hearts again and  again,  and  say
nothing.   Kisses and tears,  tears
and   kisses��� divine   mingling  of
agony and love!    And some are
talking with wives and endeavoring with brave words,  spoken in
the old tones, to drive from  their
hearts the  awful   fear.   We  see
them part.   We see the wife standing in the door with  the babe in
her arms���standing in the sunlight

holding high in her loving arms

stand guard with them in the
wild storm and under the qniet

fnrrows of old fields. We are
with them between contending
hosts, unable to move, wild with
Thirst, the life ebbing slowly away
among the withered leaves. We
see them pierced by balls and torn
with shells, in the trenches, by
forts, and in the whirlwind of the
charge, where men become iron,
wifeh nerves of steel.
They sleep beneath the shadows
of the clouds, careless alike of sunshine or of storm, each in the
windowless palace of Beat. Earth

are at peace. In the midst of battle, in the roar of conflict, they
found the serenity of death, I

living and dead: Cheers for the
living; tears for the dead.���Robert

Muskrat Farming
Muskrat farming has proven to
be a profitable business in the
United States. Large areas of
marsh lands in Ohio and Maryland
are made to yield good retnrns
through the production of musk-
rat fur. Indeed it has been stated
by competent authorities that; many
of these marsh lands are worth
more, measured by the actual income from them, than cultivated
farms of like acreage in the vicinity. Owners of such marsh lands
usually lease the trapping privilege, uniting with the trappers
to prevent poaching. The returns
from the sale of the muskrat fur
are divided equally between fehe
owner and the trapper, the latter
securing whatever extra he can
from the sale of the flesh.
It is not too early to make plans
for cultivating the vacant spaces
and unoccupied land of our cities
and towns. There will be need of
all the produce that can be grown
this year.
