The Late W. A. Keith.
With a heavy heart we would
drop a tear to the memory of W.
A. Keith. The deceased gentleman was making preparations to
visit his mother in New Brunswick
when he was suddenly taken ill at
his home in Beaverdell.   His busi
ness partner, F. F. Ketchum,  immediately  brought   him  to    the
hospital, and in spite of the best
medical skill and attention he expired on Thursday, September 3rd.
His death has brought the bitter
cup of sorrow to the lips of friends.
He was one of nature's noblemen
in its truest sense���brave, genero.:s,
ambitious,   manly.     His   was  a
heart of gold.   W. A.  Keith, the
subject of this simple memorial was
born in=Havelock,-^NYBrintheyear
1871.   He immigrated to the Slocan conntry about  1897   and two
years later came to Greenwood and
clerked in Rendell & Co's store
wherewith  a  bright  happy and
cheerful  spirit  he   made    many
friends.   In 1901 he left here to go
into business in partnership with
Robt. Wood, Ralph Smailesand F.
F. Ketchum at Beaverdell,   under
the firm name of Keith & Co.   At
that time a charter had been granted to the Midway and Vernon Ry.,
and R. Wood and R. Smailes were
interested in the  new Beaverdell
townsite.   A few years later Keith
& Ketchum bought out their partners interests and continued business under the old firm's name of
W. A. Keith & Co.   In business as
in private life he was the soul of
honor and during hie short stay in
this vale of tears he made a host of
friends. The late Mr. Keith leaves
a sorrowing mother in Sussex, N. B.
five sisters and four brothers.   Mr.
Keith had apparently been in his
usual' health   until    Wednesday
morning when  he  was suddenly
taken ill and died  the following
day of heart disease brought on by
a severe attack of blood poisoning
which he received fonr years   ago.
To the bereaved mother, sisters and
brothers we extend the sympathy
of the community who loved him
as a brother.
The funeral took place on Saturday morning from the undertaking
parlors where services were conducted by Rev. R. D. Porter. The
pall-bearers were: F. F. Ketchum,
K. C. B. Frith, W. G. Kennedy,
A. D. McDonald, A. Logan and
Jas. McCreath, jr. To him the
struggle and burden bearing of
earth are ended, and we confidently trust that like one who awakens
from a troubled dream, be has
awakened to see life's endless
morning break and knows himself
at home with the vast throng of
loved ones.

The greatest war in the history
of the world has taken a new complexion.   It started on the assumption that the real cause was the determination of Austria to punish
Servia for  the assasination of her
Crown Prince..   It developed into
an attack by Germany npon Russia
and France under the  plea that
they were mobolizing troops near
her frontier.   The next stage was
the perfidious suggestion to  England that  she  barter away  the
-neutrality ��f Belgium, followed by
a wanton invasion of that country
in violation  of  the  most sacred
treaty.   Almost daily events come
to light which prove that Germany
was playing a double game from
the beginning.   It is now known
at the British Foreign Office that
the ultimatum to Servia was submitted to the Kaiser before being
sent.   It is now known  that although Germany professed that it
was fiie attitude of Russia which
forced her to declare war, she had
all the  while  been  maasing her
troops not only on  the Rnssi&n
frontier bnt on the French frontier.

Frequent reference is made to
the silver mines of Butte turning
into copper mines at depth, but
this is somewhat misleading. The
first mines at Butte were silver
properties, and there seems good
reason to believe that some of these
may turn into copper mines at
great depth; but, as a matter of
fact, the silver mines were opened
on an entirely different set of veinB
than those carrying the wonderful
copper values for which Butte is
famed., and the discovery of the
copper mines was due to cross-cutting, at depth, from the mines on
the silver veins, as the copper veins
contain practically no values for
500 to 1000 feet depth from the
surface.

The taking over of the big gold
property on Surf inlet, Princess

this province. The profitable operation of a great gold mine on our
west coast will do more to stimulate
the mining industry in this part of
the world than anything that could
possible happen. It is particularly
fortunate that this well known
property has fallen into the hands
of so strong and progressive a concern as the Tonopah Belmont,
which is, if we are correctly informed, in the field for other properties of merit, and we hope it
may be most successful in this, its
first venture in British Calumbia,

Men in the United States who
desire to enliet in Canada for the
war can do so by crossing the line
of their own accord. It is against
international law for military authorities on this side of the line to
ask them to come over and enlist.
They must come of their own free
will.
During the Civil war in the
United States the copper industry
was not injured to any extent, the
piice ranging, during the four
years of unpleasant conditions from
17 to 55 cents a pound. The average production during that time
was about 20,000,000 pounds a
year. The Granby and B. C. Copper companies were not then in existence.
During the past ten years the
average cost of producing the
world's copper supply has been 9\
cents a pound, and the average
selling price, 14i cents a pound.
During the next ten years the aver*
age selling pricejof copper will probably be about 17 cents a pound.
The future for copper never looked
better since the red metal appeared
on earth.
A colonial trooper, among the
wounded brought to Paris from the

ran several yards with it before he
was overcome. The writer knew a
similar case. Some years ago on a
