In Northern Manitoba
J. A. Campbell, Commissioner
for Northern Manitoba, has the
following to say regarding possibilities and happenings in the mining
world in his section.
At Flin Flon Lake is the most
extensive body of sulphide ore yet
discovered in the north. Two
diamond drills were working on
this property steadily last summer,
and they are still on the job, approximately 6,000 feet of drilling
having been done already this
year. Over 6,000,000 tons of sulphide ore have been proven np,
and there is every indication that
this will develop into the greatest
ore body of its kind in America.
General opinion seems to be that a
railway will be built in from The
Pas in doe course, and a smelter
erected on the property. These
enterprises will result in the opening up and working of a number
of other claims in the district
where mineral deposits have been
shown to exist, and which owing
to their remoteness and the amount
of money involved in handling
them under existing conditions,
make their development by present owners now ont of fehe question. The shore of the picturesque
little lake is already dotted with
cabins of those engaged in these
development operations and of
others who own or are interested
in claims in the vicinity.

frozen poultry could bo used
economically as a substitute for

frozen meat days were arranged
and individual retailers bad prospects of handling a certain quantity, they could order accordingly
and all arrangements be made for
the necessary defrosting, As there
is practically no other market for
frozen poultry at the present time,
it would appear to be of distinct
advantage to this country, in as-
tistiug to conserve its food product? of other sorts, that poultry
meat be utilized, insofar as possible, in the way suggested.

After living for 30 years the
News-Advertiser died in Vancouver last week from lack, of business and government pap. Its
business has been absorbed by the
Sun. The News-Adwas always a
clean journal, given to facts and a
cold intellectuality, but devoid of
humor and the physchological
touch that binds a newspaper and
its readers together. In this province deficient circulation and financial malnutrition has folded
many a journal into the formation,
since the red hand of Mars smeared
the world with the blood of millions. '      	
Frozen Chickens
There is an article of diet of
which there are large stocks in
storage in Canada and for 'which
fehere has been practicality no demand. This commodity is frozen
poultry.
This unusual situation this year
has been caused through the shortage of ocean tonnage. A large
part of the stocks on hand have
been sold for export but could not
be transported owing to the unavailability of refrigerated space.
Canadian consumers, in the past,
bave not taken  kindly  to frozen
meats.    This has been due, in part
at least, to lack of suitable facilities for defrosting,   which  if not
properly done results in the meat
being discolored and  unattractive.
The time haB arrived,   howeyer,
when it may be necessary  for consumers to rely   more   and   more
upon frozen meat products.     In
times of scarcity  every advantage
should be taken of the facilities
provided to carry over the surpiiMr
from one season to the shortage of
another.    Properly defrosted poultry,  for instance,   is   equally   a6
wholesome and nutritious as fresh-
killed stock.
The public is invited, therefore,
to ask for frozen poultry, of which
there is a large supply consisting
of chickens, broilers, ducks, geese,
and turkeys. The trade advi.e
that many of these varieties can be
obtained at prices considerably
lower than those prevailing for
fresh-killed stock at present available.
It is given as a suggestion  thafe
Hits The Fund
The night shift at the Slocan
Star mine, Sandon, went on strike
last Friday. The cause of the
trouble, which lias since been adjusted, was the collection of a
day's pay per man by the company, such collection being paid
into the Sandon branch of the Canadian Patriotic Fund.
Like most of the mines in the
district, the Star is to a very large
extent manned by foreigners, especially as far as actual mining operations are concerned. Any other
labor is almost impossible to get.
Italians and Austrians comprise
tho bulk of the men working
around the Sandon mines.
Tho Star management had no
other course open but to accede to
the demands of the men, as not to
do so would have resulted in a
complete shut down.
Similar action has since be^n
taken at the Surprise and the
Noble Five, as a promise of a
strike loomed up there unless the
forced collection of the Patriotic
Fuud contribution from each employee was discontinued, and thus
at one swoop the Fund leses a substantial amount hitherto contributed by the Sandon miners each
month.
The trouble is said to have
originated with the Sandon Union,
which at a special meeting held recently determined that the "taking
or keeping of any money from any
employee for the Patriotic Fund
without the written consent of such
employee will be considered unfair by organized labor."
Surprise, Slocan Star and the
Noble Five managements were
most reluctant to give up the collection of a day's pay per month
per man for the Fund but at the
same time had no other course
open. At the Cunningham properties, the Queen Bess, Idaho-
Alamo, Wonderful and Sovereign,
all of which together employ a considerable proportion of the labor in
Sandon camp, the collection of a
day's wage per month for the
Patriotic Fund has never been' en-
<_�� #
forced, but has been optional, Mr.
Cunningham having made the offer
that he would put up even money
with every dollar of voluntary con
tribution from each of  his employees.
This course has given rise to
some amount of criticism from supporters of the Patriotic Fund in
Sandon, who claim that if Cunningham had etuck to the enforced collection rule with the other large
employers of tabor, no inimical
action would have been taken by
the men concerned. "With the
shortage of labor prevalent the
grounds for this belief can be
easily understood.
Like all the men working in the
silver-lead-zinc camps, the Sandon
miners have greatly increased
wages since the war began, until
today the raise averages up to
31 per shift all around. At the
same time there has been no in-
creese as far as mine boarding is
concerned, and there has been a
disproportionate increase cost of
clothing. Taken all in aU the
men are away better off than they
were before and the extra pay
earned on four shifts only is about

"You Savey God"
There waB a prominent lawyer
in San Francisco who prided himself on his astuteness in questioning Chinese witnesses. He was
very nearsighted, however, and on
one occasion got into difficulty
through failing to notice that the
dress of a certain Chinese witness
was of finer texture than that worn
by the ordinary coolie. The following dialogue ensued:
"What is your name?"
"Sell Lung."
"Do you live in San Frrncisco?"
"Yes."
"You savvy God?"
"Mr. Attorney, if you mean to
ask whether I comprehend the
entity of onr creator I will merely
reply that on next Thursday evening I shall address the State Ministerial association upon the subject of the Divinity of Christ, and
I shall be pleased if yon will attend."
To the day of his death the celebrated lawyer will never escape
the question. "You savvy  God?"
B. C. Mines
The Surf Inlet gold mine on
Princess Royal island is being op-
orated by a Vancouver company.
A townsite has been laid out near
the mine.
Near Fort William, Ontario, the
largest chemical company in America is mining for pyrites. Two
diamond drills are at work on tbe
property.
Owing to a lack of; labor, the
mill at the Cork-Province, near
Kaslo, is only running one shift.
The resources of this mine are very
promising.
