Kager, mining- man of  Seattle, who has been in this section  for the past sixty days investigating  and examining placer and lode propositions, left this week for the coast.  He thinks .that the mining resources  here are proving valuable ' assets of  the country.���Similkameen Star".  The leasees, Knipple & Lawrence  of the Montana mine, near Stewart,  have now sacked some 70 bags of  high grade silver-gold ore, principally taken from ' the surface exposure of the vein. The tunnel to  tap this showing is in a distance of  60 feet.���Portland Canal Miner.  A handsome block of ore, weighing considerably more than one hun-*  dred and fifty pounds, was brought,  down from the Revenue the latter  part of last week. The ore was forwarded to the R. G. Barnes syndicate, Calgary, which concern took a  bond on the Revenue this summer.  Kootenaian.  The West Canadian Deep Leads,  Limited, of Little Valley, have installed a sawmill a couple of miles  beyond their camp, on the Bear  Lake road, and intend cutting about  90,000 feet of lumber for use around  the mine, which will shortly be  started up again with a full crew.���  Cariboo Observer.  "Just as soon as our copper furnaces are in operation, sometime  early next year, it is the intention of  the company, providing we are assured of a sufficient supply of lead  ores, to install a lead furnace at the  hew Granby Bay. works," said J. P.  Graves of Spokane, vice president  and general manager Qf the Granby  Consolidated ' Mining- & -Smelting  Co., to the Portland Canal Miner on  the occasion of his recent visit to  Stewart. The general manager was  accompanied north on a trip of inspection by A. C.  Flummerfelt.  E. A. Haggen, mining editor for  the Vancouver Province, says the  Windermere    Mining    Division   of  B.C., is undoubtedly a coming min  ing camp.'

The\Uountry is  unusually    accessible,    being    well  miles from the principal ore deposits,  the valleys are favorable for tramway construction, and there is abundance of water power. Tbe climate  is dry. East of the town of Windermere is the Swansea, a copper property that was one of the first shippers  in- B.C., a shipment having been  sent to Swansea, Wales, about 1890,  The ore occurred in a fissure in limestone, and consisted mo.stIy~of cuprite, or red oxide of copper. .The  principal-mineral zone is, however,  in the Selkirk Range. The hot  springs at Sinclair are valuable for  medicinal and therapeutic purposes.  r^'jjamw  Number 3  ROAD CONNECTION BETWEEN  Phoenix and grand forks  Deputation! Waits on Ernest Miller, M. P. P.���Meeting of Citizens  ^pn. Monday���Immediate Action Promised���Present and  Other Routes Discussed.  Sixteen Years in Phoenix  After an almost continuous residence in Phoenix for the past sixteen years, Sam Elmgren, one of  the first miners to vyork. on the  Granby company's property, here,  left on Friday to join his wife and  family in Sweden. Mr.. Elmgren  first arrived in this camp in 1898,-  and was employed" under W. Y.  Williams in sinking the first shaft  on the. property which has now  become a byword throughout the  mining regions of the North" American continent. Mr. Elmgren believes that he has turned a machine  crank and looked upon the "glory  hole" for the last time, and intends,  if possible, to settle down on the  little farm he has purchased in  his native land. 1"     "  "'"- ""-'-'  Newton, the lawyer who defended  Crippen, was sentenced on Wednesday to three years penal servitude for conspiracy to defraud a  client of $115,000. His accomplice  was sentenced to eighteen months'  hard labor. :-  A   meeting of prominent citizens  was   held   on  Monday   evening  at  the Brooklyn  hotel  for the purpose  of meeting- thev provincial engineer,  M. B.   Wescott and  E. Spraggett,;  supt. of roads in this   riding.    The  meeting was a sequel to the conference held at Grand Forks, last Saturday,    between     a    representative  deputation of Phoenix business men  who  waited on   Ernest  Miljer,   the  provincial member for Grand Forks, |  and drew that gentleman's attention  to the general complaint heard hereabouts  anent  the neglected  condition of the road  leading from Phoenix to  Grand   Forks, or rather that  portion   connecting with  the newly-  constructed  highway  to that town.  We are  informed   that   Mr.   Miller  disclaimed all knowledge  of the existing  conditions here   and frankly  expressed   his   astonishment   at the  statements of his interviewers, praising that  the matter would receive  his   immediate attention.     That he  faithfully kept  his word was  in evidence the  following  Monday, when  the two   road   officials   appeared in  town for the purpose of hearing*the  views of the residents on the matter.  Alderman Jas.  Marshall   was the  principal    spokesman   at   Monday's  meeting and vehemently denounced  the inaction of whoever was responsible for   the   road conditions  here. I  The   high-way   to   the   Forks was a  positive disgrace'and danger? and as  for the  old  road he wouldn't travel  along it again, except on foot, without   increasing   his   life   assurance.  Mr.   Marshall   further   stated   that  Mr. Miller" bad   informed him   that  Marshall, "of what use was that  to Phoenix, if the people of this  town had no method of reaching  the main highway. Crooked and  unsuitable as the so-called Denoro  road was, he would not have joined  in this protest if an attempt to remedy matters had been initiated before now. Phoenix has been deliberately slighted."  One or tvvo  of those  present appeared to   be in   favor of changing  the route  altogether and N. J. Carson     told   the    engineer   that   he  thought a lesser grade could be obtained by   adopting  the  route from  Hale to  Trombley's   ranch   and via  Hartford junction.  Supt. Spraggett,  however,   appeared  dubious   about  that   fact  and   stated   that   if   the  present   Denoro   road  was graded,  ditched and widened to sixteen feet,  an    excellent 'highway     could    be  secured.  Considerable discussion followed,  and as no one present could state  with certainty the difference in  the grade between that via Hartford  and the Denoro road, Mr. Wescott  threw out the proposal that no  further action be taken until the  grade per centages had been obtained by actual measurement.   This  Big Demand For'Phoenix Beer  Probably one of the busiest establishments in   the interior  of British  Columbia  during  this  warm   spell  of weather is  the Phoenix Brewery,  and while the demand for its sparkling  products is  steady  enough at  all times,   the  past   month has witnessed a remarkable  rise in its outside shipments, so much so that an  increase  to   the  ordinary staff has  been made necessary.     A glance at  the  shipping  tags  will  prove a revelation,, the names of the places including every town and  hamlet  for  a radius   of  over   a   hundred miles  and as   far afield   as   Hedley   in the  Similkameen.     This is a very creditable record, but   we   are   informed  .that   other   places! considerably removed, such   as   Nelson,   have un-  availingly sought  to  conclude contracts for a supply' of Phoenix beer.  But it is not alone on the fame of  its beer  that   the   Phoenix Brewing  company has  staked  its reputation.  An enormous trade  in soft drinks is  carried on,   the  quality  of which is  equally on a  par with the beer, that  for  quality,   has   few   equals  even  among the imported foreign brands.  The manufacturing  plant   is   of the  most modern  pattern, and  a visitor  cannot help but  be struck with the  scrupulous  cleanliness  apparent  in  every  department of the establishment. ������   ��,   Ore Tonnages  Following are the  returns  of the  output of the   Granby  mines    and  Phoenix Versus Greenwood  The second match - of the newly-  formed Boundary Football league  was decided on Wednesday, when  the teams representing Greenwood  and Phoenix cities faced one another  on the home ground. Greenwood  won the toss and decided to defend  the west end. Phoenix soon had  the ball around the Greenwood goal  and a smart shot tested the visitors'  guardian who easily cleared. Greenwood then ran away, and a shot  from Purdon from close range  landed the leather in the Phoenix  goal after two minutes play. The  game then became fast and furious,  both sides playing a good game.  Some fine shooting from the Green  wood ranks gave Wilkinson a little  trouble, but he was equal to the  test on every occasion. Half-time  arrived with the score standing 1-0  in favor of Greenwood.  The re-commencement saw both  ends visited in rapid succession,  both goalkeepers being repeatedly  called upon to defend their trusts.  Griffiths of Phoenix then made a  specialty of continuously charging  his opponents' goal keeper, but  without results, and after twenty  minutes of strenuous play, Johns by  a splendid long shot completely  fooled the visitor's defence and a  goal resulted. Strong play continued until two minutes from time,  when a Phoenix player went down  with all the wind emptied **from his  compartments. He, however, quickly took on a fresh supply and was  able to keep in line up to the finish.  smelter for the week ending July 27  was agreed  to and  the proceedings 1 Granby  19,194    737,295 iThe deciding goal was shot by Por  terminated. ~ 1 smelter tonnages lter\ the  baU   striking   one   of   the  Since'Monday's   meeting,   a sur-1 Granby .,\ ,. . .22,948     695,672 \ ���*n* bu���Ps ���� *\^.?^d b?unc:  vey party under "N.

DISTINCTIVE  Captured By Mexican Troops  A local interest was added to the  international com'plications attend  ing the capture by Mexican soldiers'  of Bernard McDonald and Charles  E'��iesel, both of whom are well  known throughout the Boundary  district of this province. Mr. Biesel  was for two or three years, in  charge of th,e interests in this camp  of the Canadian Consolidated company, and resided with his family at  the Snowshoe mine. When that  company threw up its lease two  years ago, Mr. Biesel was engaged  for some months on one of the company's mines near Salmo, and a  little later left for the country in  which he met with his adventure.  Mr. McDonald terminated his stay  in British Columbia about ten or  eleven years ago, when he resigned  his post as general manager of the  War Eagle and Centre Star mines  at Rossland. He is a British subject, while his fellow prisoner was a  naturalized citizen of the United  States.  Boundary Man in Merritt  J. Crawford arrived in the city on  Saturday evening and has taken  the position of master-mechanic at  at the Nicola Valley Coal and Coke  company. Mr. Crawford for years  held similar positions in the Boundary country and since coming to  Merritt has met many of his old  friends of former .days in the Boundary. Mr. Crawford expressed  himself as highly pleased with his  first impressions of Merritt. ��������� Menitt  Herald.  Activity in Lands Department  More proof of the importance attached by the government to the  matter of settling up our vacant  lands, was afforded us the other  day by the receipt of another collection of splendidly executed maps  from the office of the surveyor-general, G. H. Dawson, Victoria. The  activity now manifest in the Department of Lands is certainly welcome,  and no surer way to reduce the  present inordinate cost of living  could be found than the encouragement of settlers for this province.  We are importing far too much of  the product of the farm from outside points.

It is alleged that both  of the prisoners were concerned in  the recent robbery of the registered  mail from the Regina postoffice.  One of .the most astounding robberies of modern times is engaging  the attention of the Paris and London police. A parcel containing a  pearl necklace was shipped by registered mail from London, but to the  astonishment of the person to wham  it was sent, the box was found to  contain nothing more valuable than  a few pieces "of lump sugar. The  necklace was insured in transit for  $650,000.  Admiral Bridges,, who recently  was in command of -the. Imperial  naval force in Australia, passed  through British Columbia a few  days ago en route for England.  Although^the visitor stated' that on  account of liis official position, he  could hardly express any opinion on  the naval position, he added that he  had been tremendously impressed  by the splendid spirit of loyalty so  practically demonstrated by the people of Australia.    '\  The- search for the bandit,' who  for , nearly two weeks has been  dodging the police- on Shavv island,  came to a close-on Saturday last,  when all the police engaged in the  chase were withdrawn. It is no  secret that the settlers have persistently assisted the fugitive, supplying  him with food, dressing his injuries  and otherwise succouring him, while  at the" same time- misleading his  pursuers with contradictory stories  as to his movements. '  To Open Up New Country  Addressing the Royal Indian  commission in Vancouver, in regard  to the application of the Pacific  Great Eastern railroad for the right  of way and yardage room in, the  Indian reservation, the north shore  of Burrard inlet and at Newport at  the head of* Howe sound, Sir Richard McBride predicted that the  proposed line, when ultimately extended to the wheat fields and  grazing, lands of the Peco river  and to the Yukon and to a connection with the Alaskan railways,  planned by the United States government, would result in the development of regions as rich in  natural resources as any traversed  by existing transcontinental lines.  Sir Richard concluded by predicting that less than ten years would  elapse before a passenger in the  United States would be enabled to  buy a through ticket for the all-  rail journey via British Columbia to  Fairbanks in Alaska and points beyond tbe-Arctic circle. Sir Richard  stated that' he had received very  favorable replies from Governor  Strong >of Alaska and the Hon.  Walter Fisher, the United States  Secretary of the Interior.

McKeown  Community of Interests  The rumor that the United States  proposes to establish a strong naval  unit on the Pacific after the completion of the Panama cana! has been  most favorably received by the  Australians. The Sydney Herald  says that if only two or three ships  of the dreadnought era, owned by  the United States, formed part of  that unit, considerable addition to  the Pacific naval forces will have  been made. There can be no doubt  that a community of interests exists  between the States and Australia as  far as the defence of the Pacific is  concerned.- We both have to look  forward to ''the time when the  Anglo-Saxon > races may have to  fight for the hegemony of the southern seas against a-common foe."

Saturday, Aug. 2, 1913  KNOB HILL AVENUE  TJ-7"   y, iMedill McCormick, who directed  the efforts o.f the Bull Moose party,  and" who managed the affairs of  Colonel Roosevelt during the last  presidential campaign, is at present'  in British Columbia. Mr. McCormick is touring the whole of the  Dominion for the purpose of making  a study of single chamber legislation and parliamentary responsibility which is prevalent here. The  visitor stated that in, his opinion  the United States is insular in political thinking and he has come to  Canada for new ideas.  Mr. McCormick's possibilities for  1916, include besides Roosevelt,  Messrs. Hiram Johnstone, Bev-  eridge and Stubbs, although he  states it is too early to make any  predictions, as conditions are quite  sure to change before then.  .?  During the receut naval manoeuvres by the British fleet in the North  sea, the total number of ships of all  classes engaged was 346, representing about 70 per cent of the entire British navy. Eighty thousand  men manned the ships engaged.  Accompanying the invading fleet  were four swift transports containing three battalions of infantry and  one of marines. -The defending force  was assisted by small parties of men  with - motor cycles, and a mixed  force of cavalry-and mounted troops  which patrolled'the Yorkshire' coast.  Although a great deal ��� has been  made of the success of the attacking  fleet in effecting a landing, the question of an invasion did not enter into the ^scheme, the chief problem  being to find out whether the active  h still at the head of the business.  Thje price of the 1913 edition is two  dollars.  - \  *     .���: ��t :���  For  the  fourth   timeythe King's  prize, emblematical of the champion  rifle shot  in   the whole  of the Empire,   has  again   been   awarded' to  a  soldier  of the   Dominion.   'This  time   the   coveted   distinction   has  bejjn won>=by   Private   Hawkins 'of  the' famous-* 48th    Highlanders,   a  Toronto regiment, with   a  score of  330  out  of a  possible   35Q.     The  prize   itself   consists    of   a   velvet  purse, embroidered  with  the Royal  monogram, and containing the sum  of $1250  in   gold,   together   with a  solid gold medal, an  elaborate gold  arm badge and the rifle used-in the  match.      Even this is not all, for in  the  several   stages  that  mark the  advance    of   the   winner, ��� valuable  prizes   in   money  are   awarded,, so  that in this   one  event  alone,   the  successful    King's , marksman   has  from $1800 to $2000 to show as the  result of his prowess.     It is also the  custom  of the city  from which the  rifleman comes,  to  mark the honor  conferred on the town and regiment  by a further  gift, as   in   the case of  Perry  of Vancouver,  who was presented with something like a thousand   dollars.      Altogether   it   is   a  prize worth trying for.  When one considered the fact  that oply 27 or 28 Canadians took  part in the competition, against  perhaps a thousand entries representing Great Britain, India, the  Channel Islands, Australia and New  Zealand, the credit for the Canadian  victory is all the* more remarkable,  and testifies more eloquently than  words to the splendid material that  composes the King's forces in this  Dominion.

All  the wharves along the beach were demolished and considerable discomfort  was experienced by the campers, particularly those in tents. The row boats  wele pitched high and dry out of the  water. Fortunately no one was injured.  Win. McKay returned to town on  Tuesday from Hot Springs, South  Dakota, where helms been for some  weeks undergoing surgical treatment  at the hands of an eminent specialist.  The many friends of Mr. McKay will  be glad to learn that he has been  considerably benefited by the treatment received.  John Robinson, for the past four  years on the electrician statf of the  local sub-station, severed his connection with Phoenix this week and left  on Tuesday for Nelson, where, in conjunction with T. A. McAstocker, they  have taken over the extensive dairying  business of Moore and Towner, one of  the largest of its kind in the interior  of the province.  W. X. Perkins, who has been away  for nearly a year in California, return-  en to town on Thursday from Los  Angelos. Mr; Perkins will resume his  former position as agent for the Great  Northern railway here, while'JMr.  Votaw< who has so successfully con-,  ducted the agency . here for some  months, will leave with his son for  Republic on Monday.  Phoenix residents will do well to  bear in mind the wholesale swindling  and othei; dishonesty that marked the  visit of the last circus to Phoenix; On  that memorable occasion, it Mil be  remembered, that dozens of local residents were barefacedly duped, while  thoughtless people who attended the  show in the evening and left their residences, unprotected, returned to find  things not exactly as they would have  wished. While no reflection is cast  on the management for what occurred,  the fact remains that anion ����� the  har zen: on of a circus are. to be number d some of the most unscrupulour  spe imens of the human race. Thi  city council would do well to swear in  a couple of specials for Saturday.  Many Prizes for B.C. Exhibits  At the Dominion fair, held at  Brandon, Manitoba, this year, the  horticultural exhibits from this province secured 13 first prizes, two  seconds and two thirds, out of 19  entries of fruit, vegetables and  honey.  The British" Columbia . exhibits  practically swept the board. The  extent of the exhibits from the  coast province was one of the surprising features of. the fair. They  were located in three separate buildings, and consisted of displays of  fruit, timber, fish, grasses and ores.  The exhibits were strikingly displayed and caught the eyes of the  thousands of prairie .farmers ��� who  never ceased to ply the attendants  with queries concerning the climate  and resources of British Columbia.  r  British Press Comment  "The constitutional deadlock in  Canada is not for us in this country  to discuss, but we arc bound to  deal with it. The result, one of  these days, is the definite impossibility of reckoning on the construction of any ships by Canada in time  to affect the naval balance in the  spring or probably in any part of  1916. If the Canadian position is  not cleared, after six months' reprieve, secured by the accelerating  of this year's program^ then further  action cannot be postponed here."���  'London Times.  "Unless the Canadian decision  comes soon, or the British government takes fresh action before the  end of the year, it is hard to see  how the navy can be prevented from  falling. three ships behind in what  was intended.
