With ideal baseball weather  a fairly large crowd   turned  out  to  witness fhe game, and were  recompensed by a real  classy game, ^vith  the exception of the sixth and eighth  innings, when the Phoenix clouters  found Harrison's benders and   hammered them to all corners of the lot.  The new local  heaver, Bickey   Williams made his initial appearance on  the   home  lot,   and    had   Republic  under his wing all through the game.  The big speed boy's pitching of a no  run no hit game has probably never  been performed before in the interior  of British Columbia.     Slich a feat is  generally looked upon by big league  scouts as very promising for a chance  in the big  show.    The  hurler   was  very ably supported at the receiving  end by Phillips, who caught a dandy  game.    The   two   as  a battery are  hard to beat;'and would  take some  watching in a whole lot faster company.    The boys  gave  its  battery  mates excellent support, and  pulled  down drives   that  looked   like sure  hits.    The two   features   in this respect were  line   drives  stabbed   by  Mclntyre and Perrott, the   former's  was a fine  catch   off  Mann's  drive  just over the edge of the bank, and  the latter speared   one   off  Moran's  bat that certainly would  have   been  good  for two bases.     Robinson at  third did not get  a  real   chance to  show his class, nevertheless, he connected each time up, and with   Bassett with his big club was  a  source  of worry to theopposing pitcher.

Bellemaine replaced  htm in centre.   .For.Republic, Mann  and Moran were the most feared with  the stick, but Bickey generally tightened up, and with his baffling cross-  J  fire held them safe in   check.     Williams used his underhand delivery in  ��� the pinches, and the pill crossed the  (Continued on Page 4)  Not Slackers  The statement  made locally, that  the slackers and shirkers were principally composed ot clerks and others of-that class is decidedly unfair  and is  not   borne out by facts.    A  more cosmopolite army than that of  Canada's oversea force could not be  found even   among  the conscripted  legions of Europe, and in the face of  the figuresv supplied   by  one of. the  Dominion's great financial concerns,  the Canadian  Bank of Commerce,  the doubters must stand convinced  of their mistake.     Out of a staff of  3500,   comprising-   old   and young,  458 have enlisted.     Seventeen have  already paid the supreme price with  their lives, 32 are fimong the wounded,   Ihree  are   officially   known   to  beprisoners, while four are numbered among the great mysterious army  of missing.     So   great   at one time  was the demand to be allowed to go  that   it  became   necessary   for   the  well   being   of   the   bank   to  refuse  peremptorarily all further requests;  Although   we have   no  figures,   we  know that the directors of the other  large banks were called upon to face  the same difficulty.

To Do Their Bit  Exit The Whiteman  The ladies of Merritt are decidedly  unprogressive, that is some of them.  They prefer   to have  their  delicate  lingerie scented  with  the hop spray  from a Chink laundryman's mouth,  rather than patronize the up-to-date  establishment of  one   of  their own  race.     We surmise this from an announcement   in the   recent  issue of  the News which records the impending departure of Paul  Meecham, a  pioneer   resident of the   Boundary.  First came the whiteman, next came  .the^ehink-Jaundryman, 'then? arrived  the hop and noodle joints, the latter  segregation    accounting   for  more  ruined white girls than   the authorities ever cared to admit.  pation in the great war, was marked  throughout the length and breadth  of the British dominions by commemorative exercises of a varied  character. Wherever there was a  British community, the memorable  resolution was read out and solemnly endorsed and one cannot but  think that if the fatal shots fired at  Lexington were echoed round the  earth, the echoes of the innumerable  "ayes," shouted from millions of  throats on the 4th of August, 1915,  will become as equally historic and  effective as their American parallel.  In Phoenix, the day was marked  by a gathering at the opera house,  which was crowded, and the speakers were the mayor (D. J. Matheson)  and the Rev. J. R. Munro oif St.  Andrew's Presbyterian church;: A  mixed choir under the <condue.tor-  ship of Mrs. J. G. Mullen, enlivened  the evening by rendering with fine  spirit a number of the national an-  thems'of our gallant allies, together with our own inspiring war song  and beautiful national hymn. Other  items on the program were vocal  solos, animated war pictures anda  ringing male voice selection by a  Scandinavian choir,, which was  loudly encored.     ;  The mayor, in opening the proceedings, reminded his audience of  the reasons that brought them there  gle  to  preserve  her independence,  to France the beautiful,   to  all our  brave allies, and then with a touch  of pride  to  tbe   part  taken  by our  own   Dominion,     India,    Australia,  New Zealand, and all the other dependences   of  the   British   Empire,  who    have   benefitted   by    Magna  Charta, the  Bill of Rights, the Reform Bill, and   many   other stupendous incidents  that had their inception in the  British  Isles.     He could  not allow the occasion to pass without some reference to the part played by Botha.   That pleasant page of  our history could not have been possible  but  for  the   magnanimity   of  Sir    Henry   Campbell-Bannerman's  government in* granting immediately after the South African war, complete self government to  the former  Boer republics.    Hearty cheers were  given for Lloyd-George.     He scorned the "peace  at any  price party."  "The Germans were  not in Paris  yet.    They   were   not   in   London.  They had not  even  seen Petrograd.  Why this call for peace. There were  some things worse than peace. Look  at Belgium.    Might was  not right.  The  strong must  ever protect\ the  weak.    Was there any one in Phoenix  who   was  not    free.

Thompson, who  was the prime instigator of the  movement locally, informs the Pion-.  eer that in less than a day's canvassing the sum of $2000 had been collected or promised. "We had not  the slightest difficulty in getting  the money," said Mr. Thompson,  "and every one we approached  seemed fully aliye to the importance  of our mission and the necessity of  providing our troops with lots of  these particular kind of weapons."

O. Box 309  The Lewis Gun  One of the arguments in favor of  more machine guns for Canada's  troops is furnished by the nearness  of the opposing trenches. The Germans always endeavor to dig themselves in as close as possible, and  the object of this will be seen later  if it is kept in mind that they always advance in a very close massed formation. Suppose, and the supposition is by no means far fetched,  the enemy lines are distant fifty  yards. To cover that distance by a  charge would consume about ten  seconds. The average maximum  fire from a rifle (single loading)  would probably be at the rate of  from eight to ten a minute and with  one magazine about eighteen. But  as the time for stopping the charge  is only ten seconds, the soldier has  only time enough to empty his magazine of seven shots before the enemy is on top of him in overwhelming  numbers. This is bad enough, but  as none of our boys are fools enough  to attempt a bayonet fight in their  closed in trench, another precious  three seconds is lost in climbing out  for the final stages of the scrap.  It is on such occasions as this when  the efficacy of the little Lewis gun  asserts itself, and saves the lives of  Canada's sons. With its use two  I things   may   happea���the   enemy's  charges are reduced in number,  what charges they do make are abortive, while it affords safety for our  fellows forming up for a rush after  the high-power artillery explosives  have rendered untenable the. position  to be attacked. For consolidating  the position gained, its portability  makes it again invaluable. Just  take a sprint for 50 yards, and after  that engage for ten minutes in a  rough and tumble fight and see how  capable you would be after that to  take on a fresh antagonist. With a  Lewis weapon, pouring out a stream  of metal at the rate of 440 a minute,  the safety of that portion of the captured trench from a reserve counter  assault is fairly assured. Mayor  Matheson's appeal, on August 4th,  that if you couldn't give fifty dollars  then give fifty cents, was not humor. Fifty cents will purchase a  magazine, and its contents of 46  cartridges might decide the fate of  a furious battle.  Promoted To Lieutenant  G. K.

How oh  earth can it be  satisfactory when it  becomes necessary to'recall to civil  life some thousands of Kitchener's  army whose skilled assistance is required to further the  output of war  material. Compulsory .service would  at least have left most of the married  men  out,  reduced.���.the  number  of  widows and orphans arid still retained them   for  service at  home  as a  ho"nie   guard.      Another  benefit  it  would have done,  would be the refusal of men whose services in the  munition factory were more valuable  than in the field.    To carry the argument further, an Act for compulsory service passed  during the first  month of the war would have roused  the people,   as nothing else would,  to the  frightful   seriousness   of the  task confronting them.

It is said that the money  subscribed to the bureau by German  merchants and bankers would finance a Balkan war.  >   Another proof of the undeviating  loyalty of the Indian troops has been  furnished by a company  of Pathan  infantry,   who   have   performed    a  wonderful  feat   of enduraace   that  will stand  out  as-one of the moist  remarkable  incidents   of the   war.  Taken prisoners by the Germans in.  Flanders,   they  were sent   by   the  kaiser to Constantinople in the hope  that    being     Mohammedans   they  would turn traitors and fight against  the British in the Dardanelles.    Instead  of doing this,  however,   the  whole company under the command  of a native officer made^a mysterious  escape and are  reported to have arrived in Afghanistan.  Letters  received   in   India   from  I Cabul state  they  were all well and  I expecting soon to re-join their regiment.    Sir O'Moore Creagh, commander of the troops in India, when  told of the exploit said the feat was  a great one, but it is interesting' as  another sample of German mismanagement.     "We know,   of. course,  that the Pathans  travel tremendous  distances, and that  expeditions  for  rifles have gone to Persia.    A Pathan thinks  nothing of walking right  through' to  Aleppo   to   buy  guns.  The incident attests the great loyal  ty  of these   men,   and  also shows  how   happy they  were  in their old  regiment."    The journey to  Cabul  consumed four months.

Musicians   will   doubtless   like to  add an   Italian  national  anthem  to  their repertoire.    They cannot find  it.    Italy has many patriotic songs  as the "Royal March" and "Garibaldi's Hymn," but no recognized national    anthem,     though   the   last  named song has almost ccme to the  supremacy.     In   t]ys   respect   Italy  is at the same disadvantage as Turkey.

District of Brit is h Co I u m b B a  IN  MINERAL,   AGRICULTURAL AND   LUMBERING  POSSIBILITIES������  A MOST PROMISING FIELD FOR THE INVESTOR.  Probably no district in the Domfnjfon of Canada possesses so great an array of  potentialities as the above.   The moun^iris throughout its entire length and breadth,  are almost without exception mineraljferous, containing gold, silver, copper, iron and  other valuable ores, while in a few localities there are more than surface indications  of the presence of coal.  FOREST AND MINERAL WEALTH  Its forest stretches are among the richest in the province, and what is of great  importance, easily accessable to river and railway. There is scarcely a square mile of  it that is not either equipped with high tension wires, or which could not be reached  by' the expenditure of the smallest outlay. Not the least attraction from the point of  view of the investor, is the sites for water power, which abound in this district.  Just at present an immense amount of interest is being directed to the recent  free gold discovery in Greenwood, while in the same district is to be seen one of the  best equipped free gold properties in the west, a not inconsiderable asset in th��s�� days  of industrial depression and shrinkage of gold reserves. It is in this district wh��r�� is  situated the Phoenix and Grand Forks properties of the Granby Consolidated, together with those of the British Columbia Copper company. In the former camp, anil  surrounding it for miles on all sides, are acres of crown-granted mineral claims, all  awaiting the advent ofjthe investor. Xhe title deeds to these -properties, thanks to a  beneficent series of mining laws, are. unimpeachable,, and if proof is wanted of the  statement, let us point to the almost entire absence of mining litigation in the courts  of the province. -  AGRICULTURE AND FRUIT-GROWING CENTRE  The possibilities of the Boundary as an agricultural and fruit-growing .centre  are also worthy of investigation, and a yisit  to some  of its   spendidly equipped orchards will prove a revelation to the stranger.     The highways throughout the Boundary makes this section of the provinc��ythe motorists paradise, millions having1 been  spent on the construction of governmep�� roads.  No locality is better served w&h railroads than  the Boundary district.     At  present this section is served by two of.the greatest systems on the continent, the  C. P. R. and Great Northern companies, while within a few months the route to the  .Pacific coast will be commercially ^curtailed by the opening of the new  K. V. V.  branch of the former.

The British government has announced through its embassy at  Washington an agreement with the  Swedish Cotton Spinners' association, for unrestricted importation into Sweden of ten thousand bales of  cotton a month, if consigned to the  association.

Several German women who were  being deported back to Germany,  were found to be taking back with  them considerable quantities of  English gold, contrary to the new  law.

Happy Murray  at centre^ did hot get a chance, but  laid down a nice bunt in the eighth  that started the scoring, and got the  visitors up  in the air.    When the  local's  dust  around   the  path   had  cleared  away,  five  runs had come  over the plate.    Harrison Was found  when   his hits  meant  runs, as the  score indicates, the  locals  crossing  the pan with two in the fourth, four  in the sixth and five  in  the eighth.  Each side went out in one; two, three  order for the first three innings, and  it looked like anybody's game.     In  the visitor's half of the fourth, Mann  got on through on error, and Harrison, next man up,grounded to Miles,  Moran  and   O'Connor  struck  out,  ending the inning with Mann left on  second.    Robinson started   the last  half with an infield tap to Harrison,  and nearly beating it out, Bellemaine.  covering the  bag, and getting the  put out. The next three up, McWha,  Perrott and Bassett each got a hit,  Miles struck out, and Phillips infield  out brought across two runs.  At this stage of the game, Williams was pitching grand ball, and  using terrific speed, making seven of  the visitors whiff the; air. Forthe  next three innings, the visitor's pitcher received excellent support in the  fifth, and the locals were retired in  order, Lowrie at first getting all  three put-outs. Phoenix big bats  again started a merry-go-round, and  a real big balloon ascension in the  sixth. McWha the first up, grounded out to Lowrie, Perrott landed on  one of Harrison's benders, for two  bases, and was brought home by another two-base smash by Bassett,  Miles and Philips walked, filling the  bases. Murray was an easy out,  Hiilyard to Bellemaine, Mclntyre's  Texas leaguer took Bassett across,  and Williams hit to left centre  brought Miles and Phillips home.  On the balloon's arrival to earth,  with a Mr. Harrison of Republic on  -board, four runs had come across  the platter.  Republic went out in order in their  half of the eighth, Lowrie grounded  to McWha for an easy out, Murphy  flied out to Mclntyre, and Bellemaine went out Williams to McWha.  Phoenix eighth was a repitition of  the sixth, Phillips went out to Mann,  Murray and Mclntyre got on errors,  and Williams' ripsnorting two-bagger brought them home, the big boy  was held on second, according to  ground rules, otherwise the hit would  have been good forthe circuit. Robinson, McWha and Perrott each  connected for hits, and filled the  bases; Bassett hit to Harrison, and  was put.out at first, Miles walked,  but Phillips up again lined out, and  Williams crossing the plate, ended  the scoring.  Republic seemed to start something in the ninth; Hiilyard struck  out, but Merrill slashed out a line  drive, that Perrott nabbed with one  hand, Mann got on by an error, and  with the heavy hitting, Moran up, it  looked as if Bickey's wonderful feat  was coming to an abrupt ending, by  the big hurler again tightening up,  and Moran hit to Miles for an easy  out, thus ending one of the best  games seen in Phoenix, notwithstanding the one-sided score.  A dispute arose over one of Low-  rie's decisions in the fourth, and he  was replaced by Harry McKay, who  assisted by W. X. Perkins, gave excellent satisfaction.      :  Phoenix has a trio of clouters in  Bassett, Perrott and Williams, and  with a little more team work, will  give a good account of itself with  anything outside of the Northwestern The local's manager, Ted  Deichert, is trying to hook up with  the strong Rossland nine, but the  club lacks the funds.

'Mr.  McSwain is the brilliant party who  suggested the manufacture of near  beer brevyed from the hops of the  great American grasshopper, and;  the chief reason of his flight to the  seaside is another of his wonderful  suggestions for the conservation of  our national resources. Genuinely  grieved over the failure of the Vancouver Island whale fishery, he is  on the spot to hand out some advice with, a view to a revision of the  system dealing with whales. He  argues that the whales have left us  because the poor things know they  will be killed off, therefore, says  Peck, the only sensible thing' to do  is to embark in' whale ranching.  He believes the animals can be  tamed to come to the beach every  evening to be milked at the call of  the dairymaid. It's so simple that  the wonder is somebody didn't think  of it before.
