the Dominion are situated
at Phoenix. Tho Granby
Co. employs 500 men, and
has a monthly pay roll of
over $50,000, while the Rawhide pay roll-is $18,000.

£. E. Campbell's Itinerary
E.  E.   Campbell,  of  the   mining-
engineer staff of the   Granby Consolidated returned on Thursday from
a tour of inspection of various properties in the Similkameen and Nicola.
While at Coalmont he   visited the
property of the Columbia Coal   and
Coke  company,    of   which   undertaking  he   was   unbounded   in   his
praise,   both   of   its   working   and
future possibilities.     According   to
Mr. Campbell's statement the latter
company  have  opened   up   a   new
seam    of   exceptionally   fine   coal.
Operations   on  a big  scale   will be
somewhat retarded until the raise of
* 500 feet to the surface is completed,
( the latter being  insisted   on  by the
provincial government authorities in
order   to   provide   a   sufficient supply   of air.     When   Mr.   Campbell
left the new coal town, the railroad
contractors   with   their   outfits  had
just  arrived  and work   on  the line
fto Cold water had commenced.
At,Princeton, he learned that the
Great Northern were constructing
' the long deferred spur to the British
Columbia Portland Cement company's plant, making it possible to
ship in the heavy machinery and
facilitate the establishment of a
[.much wanted and highly remunerative industry.
r Mr. Campbell included in his itinerary a visit to the copper showing
put Aspen Grove, a locality which
claimed his attention for about ten
days. Summit City also received a
call. At the latter place he visited
one of the most promising properties in that camp, and where he was
shown a three-feet lead of silver-
lead, two feet of which would average $100 per ton. There was an
almost superabundance of game in
some of the districts" vi.itecI,by~Mr.~
Campbell, deer and grouse being
very plentiful, while bear were by
no means uncommon.
A Bad Actor
Jas. Hutchinson,  one of the bad
and bum actors in the Uncle Tom's
Cabin troupe, fell  foul of the'police
authorities   last week.    James  will
be   remembered  as   the  gentleman
who drove the   rig  containing the
ferocious    man-eating   bloodhound,
when the company "took in" Phoenix.     Mr. Hutchinson was arrested
in Grand Forks by Geo. Stanfield of
the  provincial  police   and  charged
with being in illegal possession of a
coat.     It was learned from the evidence that the accused dropped off
the train when nearing the Forks—
he said he accidentally fell  off—and
entered the house  of a man named
Lamond  where  he  exchanged   his
own   threadbare   garment   for   owe
much   more   superior   in   style  and
finish.      Judge   Cochrane    sternly
frowned on   the  proceeding and released him on a suspended sentence,
whereupon the erring actor indulged
in a  lively sprint for the 49th parallel of latitude.
B.C. Mining
It is reported that the CP.R. has
secured an option on the Great
Northern Nelson and Rossland lines.
Thoughtful Action
The lesson learned of late years,
sometimes at fearful cost, in regard
to defective exits from schools,
theatres and other public buildings,
has evidently been taken to heart by
the British Columbia Department of
Education, with the result that there
are no better equipped buildings in
this respect than the public schools
of this province. Some-time ago
the attention of the authorities was
drawn to the startling fact that all
the doors of the local school building opened inwards, constituting a
grave danger in the event of panic
caused by fire. The defect, how-,
ever, has been remedied, A. S.
Hood having received instructions
tos,see"that the workwas'done,' commissioned J. Beachey, who carried
out his instructions to the letter. The
expense was all defrayed by the
provincial government.
The Standard minei at Silverton,
is shipping concentrates to Oklahoma.
A notice in the B. C. Gazette
says the office of the gold commissioner and mining recorder for the
Queen Charlotte mining division has
been moved from Jed way to Queen
Charlotte City. A deputy mining
recorder's office is continued at Jed-
With some good specimens of
gold quartz from thc Gold Mountain district, below Fort Gibbon, an
old-timer, named Barrett, is recently reported to have returned to Fairbanks. According to statements he
made it would seem as though the
region down the Yukon would some
day come to the front as a quartz
mining country.
A plant, consisting of a twelve-
horse power boiler, hoist and pump,
has been installed on the Grand
Prize, located several milfes north of
Rossland, by Hugh McQuade and
his son, Ernest McQuade. They
intend to work it for the next two
months. A 6x6 feet shaft has been
sunk to a depth of forty feet and
this is to be further deepened, while
crosscutting and drifting from the
shaft will also be a portion of the
work to be done during the present
season. The ledge is r five and a
half feet wide, and the ore is free
milliner.—Trail News.
Mineral Exhibit at Vancouver
The following description of the
B. C. mineral exhibit at the Vancouver exhibition appeared' in the
columns of the Vancouver Sun:
Housed in the enclosed balcony
on the north side of the main building is the largest and best mineral
exhibit ever shown, in British Columbia.
One trouble that Mr. Brown and
his assistants are having is with
sneak thieves, who lake some of the
smaller specimens of the ores. A
bottle of mercury, the product of
Cunnibar mines, was stolen. This
was the only specimen of refined
quicksilver, and its loss is keenly
One of the most interesting exhibits   and   one   that   predicts   great
possibilities for the northern country
is  the   showing   of anthracite   coal
from the Ground-Hog basin, which
lies between the headquarters of the
Skeena   and    Stikeen    rivers.     Dominion    and    provincial   geologists
agree in declaring the supply of coal
in this  part   of  the   province   to be
almost illimitable.   There is in sight,
enough coal to produce 10,000 tons-
daily for one thousand years.
Another exhibit which is attracting much favorable comment is the
specimens of bituminuous coal from
the mines of the Nicola Coal & Coke
Co. at Merritt. As a coking coal
this is superior to any Canadian
coal, and rivals the famous Connells-
ville (Pa.) coke, which is acclaimed
to be the best smelting coal on the
continent.    The coal from Coalmont

Union hall was comfortably, filled on
Wednesday evening last, on the occasion of the social given in aid of
the  funds    of the   church  by   the
ladies   of the Presbyterian congregation.    There was   a profusion of
flowers  and   a   marked  absence of
conventional stiffness characterized
the   proceedings   throughout.      Ice
cream and cake was served at numerous   small   tables,  and,  be it recorded,  consumed   in large quantities., ;  The  .proceedings   were'en-
liven'ed by speech, song  and recitation, with a violin solo by T. Silas.
The  others who kindly contributed
towards    the   evening's   entertainment were: Mrs. Jas. Stalker, Mrs.

Distinguished Visitors
On Monday last, a distinguished
representative of the press drove up
to Phoenix in company with another
prominent Greenwood capitalist.
. With faces wreathed in smiles
they were joyously anticipating a
successful raid upon the resources
of Phoenix. But, alas, not being
able to converse in the inspiring
language of Kossuth, Kosiusco and
Karageorgevitch, their golden'anti-'
cipations failed to materialize, and
one at least of the erstwhile happy
pair, departed down the hill mutter
"A deal has recently been concluded, says the Chase Tribune,!
whereby the English syndicate
which owns the Le"Roi No. 2 and
Van Roi mines in Rossland, has acquired for the sum of $200,000,
extensive deposits of copper on the
north fork of Seymour river, twenty
miles from the Seymour arm of the
Shuswap lake.
"The purchasers will proceed at
once to spend $500,000 in developing the property. A concentrator
will be erected and the concentrates
conveyed by aerial tramway to Seymour Arm, where it will be shipped
to railway by water."
The same papet is also responsible for the following particulars regarding the above transaction,
which to say the least are somewhat extraordinary:
"The 'seam' is from 40 to 300
feet wide and extends for a distance
of 13,500 feet. It will average 5
per cent, copper, and gold 2^_ dollars per ton. Large, bodies of the
ore will yield as high as 80 per cent
copper. Beside this copper 'seam'
there is a seam of galena from two
to eleven feet wide and 6000 feet
long. This second vein is parallel
to the first and a short distance below it.      . . . . It would

<'iven out the grossly false statement that the properties of the Pacific Coast Coal Mines, Ltd., which
the new company proposes to take
over, are "estimated to-; contain
200,000,000 tons of bituminous coal
of which 91,000,000 have been
proved." The management of the
mine have never claimed anything
like such gross exaggeration, and
if Montreal financiers have to resort
to such tall lying and misrepresentation to finance their promotions they
had better stay out of mining and
limit their frenzied finance to something else. The resources of the
Pacific Coast Coal Mines, Co., are
good enough on their merits.
The report of progress in mining
in Hediey camp for the year 1911 is
again practically confined to operations at the Nickel Plate and other
claims of the group owned by thc
Hediey Gold Mining company. The
year has proved to be altogether
the best year in the history of tlie
above mine, and has served to demonstrate that all thc mine wanted
was that development work should
go hand-in-hand with ote extraction.
This new policy of keeping development in advance of ore extraction
has now been iu vogue for two
years, but for four years before that
the operations were confined wholly
to ore extraction, but with 40
stamps to be kept supplied, the
drain upon its resources were such
that few mines in the world could
have stood it.—Government report.

'  Saturday, Aug. 17, 1912  THE  PA8RY      J. W. Hannam, Prop-  High Freight Rates in West  "After having heard a deal of  evidence on the question, the railway commission has come to the  conclusion that the west has a prima  facie case made out on the western  freights question," said A. S. Good-  eve, one of the members of the commission, to the Colonist, a few days  since.  "We have made," continued Mr.  Goocleve, "what is, I believe a new  venture with regard to this western  trip. On our way out we have held  allthe sittings necessary, transacted  all the outstanding business, of  wlrich there was no small amount,  and now we have finished at Victoria. This means, therefore, that  we can go straight back to Ottawa  and commence the sittings at the  capital, where important matters  await decision. .  "The one I suppose that is  fraught with the greatest amount of  interest to the west, and British  Columbia particularly, in these days  of her coming greatness, is the  freight rates question. There exists  without, doubt, a discrimination in  thc west. The rates per, ton per  mile for hauling goods are higher  than in the east.  "Why is that? The members of  the railway commission aud myself  have been convinced that it is so,  and   accordingly   we   have   notified  thafduring all these years nations  are able to dwell side by. side with  tremendous military establishments  without Being a prey to undue  anxieties* of immediate attack. None  of these considerations applies to  fleets.  "The fleet which,, was assembled  for the recent manoeuvres was fully  capable of going into action as soon  as the ammunition could be brought  up and put by the side of the guns,  and that is true of all theigreat and  highly efficient navies of the world."  A Federal Minister of Mines  It is considered likely, says a despatch; to the coast papers, that an  additional portfolio will be created  and the west will secure a fourth  minister. It is understood that a  strong influence is being brought  to bear by the mining interests to  have a ministry of mines established. Formerly the department of  mines was under the Minister of  Inland Revenue. Last session this  branch was transferred to the Department of the Interior. How  ever, this is one of the heaviest  departments, as the Minister of the  Interior has under him the Immigration, Lands, Indian and Forestry  departments, as well as mines. It  is now felt that under a full-fledged  minister the mining industry could  be given far more encouragement  than it has received in the past.  British Columbia is particularly  anxious to see a minister of mines  appointed. The names suggested  for the position are: Messrs R. B,  Bennett, Calgary; J. D. Taylor,)  New Westminister; Robert Green,'  the new member to succeed A. S.  Goodeve, and who at one time held  the provincial portfolio of mines in  British Columbia. ��� '  Edison on the British Standard  Modesty  is  an admirable virtue,  says  a  contemporary,   which   may  with   advantage   be   cultivated    by  I nations as well as individuals.

"Therefore the companies in these  cases will have to account for this  difference and explain it, justifying  the extra charges, if they can," said  thc chairman.  8CE CREAM and  -Not any gelatine, no penvder  no  thickener,  ulterants and cheapei  "It's All Cream .   .  no  smoother, none  oi   these act-  ners in our ice cream.

Winston  Churchill, First Lord of the Admiralty, made his statement a few days  ago in the Imperial House of Commons respecting the struggle for  supremacy at sea, he briefly but  graphically depicted the awful suddenness with which naval warfare  reach its decisive phase.   "There  said Mr. Churchill,  can  are two points,  " in regard to navies and naval  war, which differentiate them from  armies and land war. The first is  the awful suddenness with which  naval warfare can reach its decisive  phase. We sec on the continent of  Europe immense military establishments possessed by nations ranged  on opposite sides of political frontier lines, while they dwell, and have  dwelt for whole generations, in  peace and tranquility.  "But between these armies and  any decisive collision there is an unavoidable period of. delay, which  acts as a great buffer, as a great  cushion of security���I mean the vast  process of mobilization.      Thus it is  physical!}', morally and mentally.  These are grateful words. The only doubt left on the subject is Mr.  Edison's neglect to say how they  stand in relation to his own countrymen. The omission cannot be  due to modesty, because he predicts  that the business men of the United  States will some day show the Germans how to hustle in their own  country. It will be a fine sight.   ��� ���   Sixty   thousand dollars   is  not a  sufficient  inducement   to   the  members of thc board to carve the name  of Andrew Carnegie,  on  the slab of  stone over thc entrance  of a library  in  thc city of Edmonton,   Alberta.  Accordingly they adopted  a resolution at their last executive meeting,  declining  the offer   and   conditions.  Carnegie's  original  offer was based  upon a  population  of about half of  what it  is today.     When  informed  that the   city now  has a population  of 53,383, according to a   civic census completed on July 6th, Carnegie  replied   that  he   felt   compelled   to  take   the   figures  compiled   a  year  ago by the  Dominion enumerators,  and  consequently limited  his grant  to $60,000.      The library board has  recommended   to the commissioners  that they   consider  thc  question   of  submitting a bylaw to the ratepayers  for the   purpose of  raising funds to  construct and equip   the first unit of  a municipal public library.

John Kirkup, government agent of  Kossland, paid Phoenix a visit on  Thursday last. In addition to his  ordinary duties a.s government agent,  Mr. Kirkup holds the office of assessor  and collector of provincial taxes and  is counted one of the most trusted  seivants ot the Crown in British Columbia. Last year he was detached  from his ordinary duties and despatched as a hper-iul commissioner to  the newly-opened territory in the  north, where he organized the provincial police, appointed magistrates, and  generally established the machinery of  government. He is also depicted in  Frederic Remington'*, pictures, which  so ably portray typ_>, and scene, of the  rapidly vanishing wild and woolly  west.  Oriental Immigration  "The more  I  visit  the west,   the  more I am  convinced  of the necessity of enacting-   the   most stringent  legislation against oriental immigration," said the editor of the Toronto  News, in an interview with a Colonist reporter.     "I   am  absolutely in  favor   of any   action, even   if it involves total exclusion,   in  order to  keep   this  a white   man's   country.  It may be said that such legislation  might be  fraught with international  difficulties.     For   that   I   care not,  and I am  convinced that if Canada  were   to put  up a  strong   enough  case, the British government would  see our viewpoint and accede to our  wishes.     We must maintain British  standards  of civilization and those  standards will  be impossible if we  allow our coasts to be invaded by a  people   who  do    not,   and   cannot,  live up to them."

Owen Jones Recovering  The recovery of Owen Jones, a  patient undergoing treatment in the  local hospital for ���tubercular meningitis is something for his friends to wonder at. For about two months he has  been an inmate, and three weeks' of  that time he was practically unconscious. Medical skill is to a certain  extent responsible for his reovery, but  his case is one in which the vital issue  of life and death lay not so much in  the latter as it did in the trained and  skilful attention given him by the  nursing staff of this city's haven of  healing.
