Mining News
����� The Victory mine, of Smithers,
recently shipped 15 ton's of ore to
fehe Trail smelter.
The concentrator for the Rock
Candy mine, up the North Fork,
is nearing completion.
From February S to February 14,
the Trail smelter received 1140
tons of ore from the Emma
near Eholfe.
A second shift has been added
feo the crew developing the property
of the Colville 'Valley Coal company at Valley, .Wash., and the
employment of a larger number of
men within two months is rumored.
The Cork-Province Mines has
arranged for a loan of '820,000, of
which S12.000 is to be used for the
cancellation of anMndebtedness and
$8,000 for a workiDg'capital, says
a Nelson, report. The remaining
S8,000j"s regarded as sufficient to
maintain operations until May or
June,'when it is believed the shipment of ore will be resumed.
The Victoria Colonist says:
"The Horn Silver is the largest
gold-silver mine in British Columbia, and work has been going on
there for three years. While
development has been carried oufe
at the same time the mine has paid
well, producing 45 cars of ore,
which was shipped to the smelter
at Grand Forks." The Horn Silver is situated near Keremeos.
"Copper mining is now firmly
established as the most important
form of mining in the province,"
says W. F. Robertson, provincial
mineralogist. "In 1918 the value
of the copper mined in fehe province exceeded by over $4,000,000
the combined values of all metals
mined, and ife formed 38 per cent
of the total value of the mineral
produetien for the year."
The Deer Creek Mining company has completed fehe installation
of a 125-ton mill and will begin
operations as soon as water is
available for febe generation of
power, says a Lewisfeon, ' Idaho,
report. The mill was installed at
a cost of $125,000 and takes.the
place of a plant destroyed in 1916.
It is equipped for amalgamation,
concentration and flotation. The
values are in gold, silver and copper. The property is on Deer
creek nine miles from Forest.
The Kootenay Gold Exploration
company, which operated the
Granite-Poorman mine, is expected
shortly to resume operations says
the Nelson News. The company
which is composed of Spokane.
Butte and New York mining men.
has deposited ��1,000 in 'a Nelson
bank towards paying of local creditors and has offered to deposife
SI,000 monthly until they are paid
off. J. J. Malone of Nelson is
liquidator for the old Kootenay
Gold Mining company, jj.. which

An attempt, however, is now being
made to tackle tho problem in a
manner intended to reconcile eon-
iiicting interests by working out a
plan for unity in diversity, such as
obtains in  Canada.
A moderate centre party lias been
formed in Ireland io advocate thc
solution of Irish home rule through
the principle of federalism. Before
Ireland swung over to Sinn Fein, the
most .familiar demand of those Nationalists who were dissatisfied with
.Mr. Asquith's home, rule act was for
Dominion home rule. The new Irish
centre party proposes to... meet that
demand., Tlic scheme 'has been drafted which ih the.-'main-follows: ���'the
Canadian model. or", 1867. The religl-
otis diffcrinces between the provinces,
the. variety oi their character and
needs, it \-, argued, are no more acute
in Ireland than they were in Canada,
atid the Canadian experiment has
been a great success. Ireland is declared, by the. sponsors for the plan
to be largo enough to provide for
local divi.-ions while niamt.'.ining its
national, unity. There are in Canada
parliaments for province;) containing
a much .smaller population than th.e
smallest of the Irish provinces, and
in tome, cases a much smaller area.
Seventy Booths Will Be Occupied by
Canadian Producers
Paris. ��� Preparations are now well
advanced for adequate representation
of Canada at the Lyons fair, which
opens on March 1, and lasts for fifteen days. This is the trade fair organized early in the war to supplant
the great fair formerly held at Leip-
Xny, which latter was always largely
attended, and at which sales to thc
extent of hundreds of millions of dollars were made.
For the coining fair, the Dominion
government, through thc department
of trade and commerce, has made extensive arrangements, and exhibits of
thc various products of Canada will
be. made in a considerable scale.
Though this is not in strict conformity with thc plan of the fair,
which aims at grouping exhibits by
class, the Canadian authorities havc
succeeded in having all exhibits from
the Dominion massed in a group,
thus securing a much more impressive showing than wonld otherwise
bc possible.
The government, itself is making
sample exhibits of agricultural, fishing, 'mining, and forestry products.
The three great Canadian railway
systems will also be represented by
attractive exhibits. In addition to
these, others will he some seventy
booths whicli will bc occupied by
Canadian producers, or their representatives, with samples of goods and
catalogues. Interpreters will be provided io facilitate thc exchange of

of the Canada Copper Corpoi ation
which was developed to a point of
large response by Oscar Lachmund.
The ore of both properties is said
to be similar in their low copper
content and recoverable quantities
of gold and silver.
The extent of tbe drilling that
may be engaged in is suggested by
the operations of fche Cauada Copper whicb drilled to a depth of 500
feefe vertically and for 1200 feet
horizontally. Many such holes
were made in probing the property,
the work required several years.
The Canada Copper has completed construction of a railroad to
its millsite at Allenby. This may
make possible the installation of
machinery by the middle of the

occupied in building the railroad to

B. C's Set at $5,000,000
The returns for the first month
of the National War Saving Committee, British Columbia Division
were about ��25,000 with no returns
from 271 units* out of 587. The
quota set for British Columbia" is
85,000,000 for the year 1919. This
means that the returns will have
to run to afe least 8450,000 a
month for the rest of the year, in
order to reach the quota. The committee however, point oufe that
most of the month was occupied
by organization work; thafe very
few committees had been formed;
that most of the divisional organizers were waiting for the conference which took place on February
4th and 5th. that practically no
advertising was done in the newspapers and that therefore under
the circumstances, the returns are
nothing to despair of.

value of $10 per acre, including clearing
and cultivation of at least 5 acres, before receiving Crown Grant.

less than 3 years, ahd has made proportionate improvements, he may, because
of ill-health or other cause, be granted
intermediate certificate of improvement
and transfer his claim.
Records without permanent residence
may be issued provided applicant makes
i/hprovements to extent of 5300 per annum and records same each year. Failure to make improvements or record

for the benefit of the Red Cross,
there was inaugurated the idea of
collecting pearls for the most precious necklace of all. Princess Victoria undertook the work of collecting; aided by public spirited
women of the "Empire. Queen

contributed their ^choicest pearls
and the string grew to almost: un-

Make The Returning Soldier Welcome
- "... N
THIS' is an important hour for Canada. The
nation is entering on a new era. It is passing
from war to peace. Let us start this new era right.
There are thousands of soldiers returning from overseas. The Government is doing all in its power to
get these men back to civil life.
It is giving a War Service Gratuity���more than
any other nation���to keep the soldier going till he
gets a job.
i: xlt  gives   him a pension���where  his  usefulness is
impaired by his service. \
It teaches a man a new trade when his service
unfits him for his former trade. *
It gives him free medical treatment when illness recurs, and supplies free artificial limbs and
surgical appliances.
It is bringing back to Canada at the public
expense the soldiers1 dependents now overseas.
But the Government, however willing, cannot provide
the personal touch needed in
this work of repatriation.
That must be given by the
people themselves.
The men who went from
these parts to fight in Flanders deserve a real welcome
home���the best we can give.
In most towns committees
of citizens have already been
organized to meet the soldiers
and their dependents at the
station, to provide hot meals,
supply automobiles, afford

After he has rested, the
soldier must be provided with
an opportunity for employment. In towns of 10,000
population, Public Employment Offices have been established to help soldiers, as well
as war-workers, secure good
jobs quickly. Where these
exist, citizens should co-operate. Where they do not exist,
the citizens themselves should
help put the soldier in touch
with employment.

It is often a temptation to call telephone numbers, from memory.
In a surprisingly great percentage of csises this results in serious
