Lieutenant Loring's Death
News of Lieut. It. N. Loring in
the Honor Roll at the front reached Greenwood this week. Ho was
killed in action in Flanders on
June 16th. Lieut. Loring was
known in Greenwood as "Plum."
He has given his all, his life, for
his country, and all are justly
proud of him.
He was the first to volunteer in
this district, and by his noble example was a great incentive to
others of our great countrymen to
respond to their country's call.
While his familiar figure and
cheery face were amongst up, we
always found him essentially
plucky. His association' with all
kinds of games and sports and the
spirit in which lie entered these
contests, con-firmed this. He was
always a good sportsman and grit
to tbe core, and it is certain that
these qualifications,^ so characteristic of the nation to which he belonged, were apparent in the heroic
fight he made for his country and
her honour.'
Greenwood is proud of her heroes
and of Lieut.Loring'in particular.
We are grieved at his death, but
proud of his patriotism and heroism.
The sympathy of Greenwood is
extended to his family, and we are
honored to associate ourselves with
this glory. _
Lieut. Loring at one time was
accountant for F. W. McLaine of
this city.���Com.
Tom Johnston Dead
Thomas G. Johnston, one of the
proprietors of the Hotel Penticton
in Penticton, died suddenly last
Monday, aged_ 42_" years. ___ Last
month he had suffered from liver
trouble and a fatty condition of bis
heart/ He was in good health on
Monday and played billiards in
the afternoon. Complaining of a
headache he went to his room, and
his partner, Bill Mason, found him
dead two hours later. The deceased was born in Orillia, Ontario,
where his parents still reside. .He
had a brother in Toronto, and a
sister in Sudbnry. In the boom
days Tom mined at Sandon and
Slocan City in the Slocan, but for
the past eleven years had been a
resident of Penticton. This summer he and his partner, Mike Gay-
nor, began work on a group of
silver claims near Princeton.
Tom's friends were legion, for he
was one of the most jovial and
best hearted men who ever left
home to enrich the manhood of
the great west.
And He Got The One
A. traveller, whose train bad
stopped at a town famous for its
buns, beckoned to a small boy on
the platform, and, giving him ten
cents, told the little fellow to bring
him a bain and buy one for himself with the other nickel.
The boy soon returned. Calmly
eating a ban he handed five cents
to the astonished traveller, remarking:
There was only one left Boss."
Ginseng is being grown in Hazelton.
Bob Green would like to be
premier of B. C.
At Revelstoke in May, G6 miners licenses were issued.
In this province many a Liberal
will vote for W. J. Bowser.
Japan is now making toys for
the world instead of Germany.
This year the sockeye season on
the Skeena river opened on June
20.
Eleven former pupils of the
Kaslo schools have enlisted for the
war.
A Rossland hotel now runs a
free auto bns for the benefit of its
guests.
C. B. Daniels has been appointed police magistrate for Prince
George.
John Barrett committed suicide
at Smithers last month by cutting
his throat.
Some cherries were recently
shipped from Kaslo to the soldiers
in Vernon.
In Sandon only one, or two men
are left who played the wheel in
that camp 20 years ago.
Jim Cronin has resumed work
on his claims on the Babine range,
in the Hazelton district.
For snow sheds the Kettle Valley railway is buying 13,000,000
feet of lumber at the coast.
Counterfeit 25 cent pieces are
being circulated in - Rossland, and
other towns of the interior.
Jack Kirkup is now government
agent at Nanaimo, having been
transferred from Alberni this
month.
Mrs. Simms of Jap Inlet,
Parcher Island, planted potatoes
on April 23, that were ready for
eating on May 24.
Safety in the home is a necessary
as in the factory. Care can prevent accidents to the children as
well as to" the" father.
All the bartenders in Rape belong to the union, but they will
sell a drink to a non-union man if
he'has the price, or a gilt-edged
finger.
The 48th Battalion has gone to
Europe from Victoria. It is commanded by Colonel Holmes, formerly oi Kaslo, and Captain John
L. Retallack is paymaster.
Many prospectors this summer
are scanning the hills around Rossland. There will be more good
claims found in that district before
many months, as well as in the
Slocan.
The, conduct of the Austrian
prisoners of war, who are building
the Monashee wagon road is highly
satisfactory. They do their work
well, and give no trouble to the
guards.
Last month a man giving his
name as J. Yonng cut his throat
with a razor. He was despondent
because be could not enlist at Vernon upon account of his teeth. He
fought in the Boer war.
The writer has received a letter
from Kaslo telling about interesting phases in the careers of Bob,
and John, but at present it would
serve no good purpose to publish
it, and might wound the pride of
some innocent people. '
Miss Hazel Fleeaer, formerly of
Kaslo is now soloist in one of the
leading churches in Minneapolis,
and will Bing at many concerts in
the United States this year. Miss
Fleener studied music in Germany before the war, and will yet
make Kaslo famous.
W. A. Smith writing to his
brother in Rossland, from the
month of bell in France says, that
they captured several wounded
German soldiers, two of them who
had been shot by their own officers,
because they refused to bayonet
British soldiers. This shows that
there are still some noble men
among the common soldiers of
Germany.
Although the general impression
is that the Trout Lake division is
a high grade country, it will probably be found, and at no distant
date, that its biggest producers
will be the low grade properties.
The problem of raising capital and
the milling of the lower grade Ores,
appears to be more difficult of solution than the discovery of ore
bodies. This matter, will however, be adjusted in due time, and
all who are in any acquainted with
the resources of the district do not
hesitate in expressing the opinion
that such a wonderfully mineralized
area must in time become a big
producer, particularly of silver,
lead and zinc, and possibly gold
and copper as well.���Kaelo Kootenaian.
GIVES MACHINE GUN
Greenwood District Gives One,
Gun, And May Give An-   _
other, Great Enthus/
iasm In City     <
The Committee in charge, of the
work in connection with providing
a machine gun to the 54th Kootenay-Boundary Battalion reported
at a meeting yesterday. Collections in Greenwood alone amounting to nearly $800. It was found
that many citizens had not been
approached and consequently an
estimate of .$1,000 was put as
Greenwoods total. The Jewel-
Denero mines reported collections
of $281, and it was decided to make
every effort now to supply a second
gun, as no subscription returns
have as yet been received from tho
rest of the Greenwood riding, and
it is felt that with earnest efforts
no difficulty should- be experienced
in raising a second thousand dollars. This it is felt speaks volumes for tbe spirit of sacrifice and
patriotism of this district. The
Committee ask for every help in
their effort to raise sufficient funds
to present this second gun to onr
local regiment.
Letter From Scotland
The following letter addressed
to the teachers and pupils, of the
Greenwood school, from the Military Hospital, The Castle, Edinburgh, of date of June 24, was received in Greenwood lasfe week:
My Dear Friends
We are very grateful
for the gift of magazines yon have
so kindly sent from British Columbia. Although so far away yon
have proved that there still remains the wondrous fellow-feeling
which ��� 'makes the whole world
kin."
You may be sure it gives my
comrades and myself pride and
pleasure to know that you think of
us, as well as, your own gallant
relatives and friends, who have
come to our assistance, and are doing so well in Flanders and the
Dardanelles.    -
I am sure that nothing finer has
ever been, or will be"recbrded,~than "
the gallant charge of the Canadian
Brigade, who, after being forced to
retire by gas, retook their guns
and trenches at Hill GO.
We are all so proud of them I
The Newfoundlanders were stationed here for some time and
earned the praise of everyone for
their good behaviour and smartness.
They have gone now and I am
quite sure they will give a good
account of themselves wherever
they go.

THE WHITE PLAGUE
In a speech in England that
eminent Canadian physician, Sir
William Osier says:
''Tuberculosis may be put into
three group?. All of us who are
here come in the first. If I had
an instrument here with which I
could look into the chest or the
abdomen of each of you, the
the probability is that in ninety
per cent, of you would be found
somewhere a small area of tuber-
col osip. So widespread is the
bacillus that practically all humans by the time they become
adults harbor the germs of the
disease.
"Why don't you die? Because we are not guinea pigs or
rabbits, we have obtained a certain immunity. But the germ is
in us, though negative, and with
all of us there is the possibility
of slipping into the two other
groups.
"The second group comprises
those in whom the disease is active enough to produce symptoms, but in whom there is the
possibility of arrest or cure, with
restoration to working health.
Those in the third group are
doomed, the disease progresses
week by week, month by month,
year by year, aud from one year
to five sees the end.
"When workers have living
wages, when the house becomes
the home, when the nation
spends on food what it spends on
drink, then, instead of hundreds
of thousands, there will be millions in the first group, with
practically immunity. The enemy has been traced to its very
stronghold, which is defended by
the three allies, poverty, bad
housing and drink."
Max is the only animal who will
not quit eating when he is sick.
Whex not eaten with meat cel:
ery is a nerve tonic, and helps to
kill rheumatism.
Many merchants are dumb when
it comes to talking through a newspaper at so much per inch.
In every town there lives a man
or two, who if bit by a viper,
twould cause the viper's death.
Ip you are too fat quit eating for
a month. This is a sure cure, and
you will make money by following
our advice.
On July 2, Sir Charles Tupper
was 94 years young. Being a Conservative all his life probably had
something to do with it.
In California a doctor has found
a tiny insect that will kill all house-
flies. We hope that tho insect
will come north before all the
sugar, butter and baldheads have
been eaten.
We have occasionally in this
world of flesh and passion met a
lady so sweet, so angelic, and so
spiritual, that she would perfume
a boquet of roses, instead of being
perfumed by them.
WAR AND DISEASE
For the benefit of the younger
generation, we will" say that the
American war of 50 years ago, was
fought by two million officers and
one private. That war was a great
event and made the north look
blue for four years, although there
are more than a million souls today in America who never heard
about it.
Foundation
Subscription List
For the purpose of presenting a machine gun to the 54th Kootenay-Boundary
Battalion from the citizens of Greenwood
and district.
If microbes were nsed instead
of shells the war in Europe would
soon be at an end. As it is 80 per
cent, of the deaths in the present
war are caused by disease, and 20
per cent, by gunfire and steel.
This same proportion obtained during the Russ-Turk war in 1877,
and the losses in the Boer war
from disease were enormous. The
Japanese are the only people who
ever reversed this order Of things
in warfare. In their war with
.Russia where one man of their
1.rpope1 died from .disease,- four died
from wounds caused by shot, shell
or steel. The wars of the future
may be carried on with microbes,
and the soldiers be armed with little bottles, filled with the bacillus
0! the most deadly disease. These
could be shot into the enemy with
the hypo syringe, or sprinkled over
tieir food when they were asleep.
This method of warfare would save
the grass from being reddened with
blood, and do away with the annoying noise and smoke that now prevails at all battles. We think that
tiie present mode of warfare is very
rude, crude and :ungentlemanly.
It would be much nicer for our
..rave soldiers to carry sponges and
chloroform, and slip throo8h the
lines at night and chloroform the
enemy to death. The result would
be the same, and it would do away
with the horrors of war.'
Mining is the fundamental civilizing industry of the world. It is
the foundation upon which all
commercial progress is based; it
dominates every line of endeavor
and has a deciding influence over
human destiny.
Without the mines, there would
be no railroads or steamships and
commerce would be at"a standstill.
There would be no circulating
media of a fixed value based on
gold, and methods of barter used
by primitive man might still be in
vogue. The arts and craftfe would
be practically nil. The printer,
minus metal press and type, could
no longer supply the world with
literature and newspapers would
he unknown. Telegrams, cablegrams and telephones are words
that would be eliminated from the
English language. And our friends
across the water would have to resort to clubs instead of shrapnel if
they were determined to exterminate one another. The farmer,
lacking agricultural implements,
could not garner his crops unless
he pulled them up by the roots.
Dog-Outs or flimsy wooden structures would supplant the modern
skyscrapers with their altitudinous.
towers. Everybody who had a
desire to live would have to take
up farming and stockraising in
order to support and clothe himself.
Taking all facts into consideration, the West if. to be congratulated upOn possessing an industry
of such vital importance to society.
Agricultural districts may boast
of their fertile farms; manufacturing communities may be self-laudatory over their immense productions, and financial centres may
swell with pride over the far-
reaching power of their gold. But
coming tight down to facts, they
all owe their being to the mining
industry.���Denver Mining Record.

Women and War
Mr. Euskin, at a close of a lecture on war, made the following
remarks to the ladies present:
"Only by your command, or by
your permission, can any war take
place among us. And the veal
final reason for all the poverty,
misery, and rage of battle through
Europe is simply that yon women,
however good and religious, however self-sacrificing for those whom
you love, are too selfish and too
thoughtless to take pains for any
creature out of your immediate
circles. Let every Christian
woman who has conscience towards
God vow that she will mourn for
His killed creatures. Let every
lady in the happy classes of civilized Europe simply vow that,
while any cruel war proceeds, she
will wear black���with no jewel, no
ornament, and I tell yon again no
war would last a week.

cathedral!"
