Mining    J  The Standard Silver-Lead Mining-  company operating- the Standard  mine, near Silverlon, has declared  another dividend of $50,000. This  makes the handsome total of  $225,000 paid by that property' within the past year.  The first shipment of ore from tlie  Red Cliff mine, Portland Canal district, consisting- of 511 tons, to tlie  Tacoma smelter, gave a gross return of $15 per ton, according- to  advices,, received yesterday, by A.  Erskine-Smith, president of the Red  Cliff Mining- company. The values  are in copper and gold. A second  shipment   of 750   tons  will  be  for-  at Tasso harbor, Moiesby island, in  the Queen Charlotte group, and will  shortly commence "the shipping of  ore to the Tacoma smelter. The  property is owned by Messrs. Arthur Cowing- of-Vancouver, formerly of Rossland and two other parlies.  The main lead has been extensively  opened up and is said to have a  width of 45ft. The ore is a typical  chalcopyrite with subsidiary values  in silver.     Il is said  to average $25  warded on August 27.  There has been quite   a revival of  interest in the mining of the Mount  Baker  and   Red   Mountain   groups  this summer, says a Chilliwack contemporary, and   prospecting- parties  have been working-  them  to a considerable extent.   The group known  as the judge Scott property has  begun   the   work    of   milling-,   a  new  ten-stamp - mill    having * been    installed    there   a   few    weeks    ag-o.  Many of the properties are making  use of the latter.  Tix-Mayor Power, of Kaslo, is on  the coast making a laudable effort  lo interest the powers, al Victoria,  in the matter of opening up the  Upper Duncan country. "I consider  it a little less than a shame and a  disgrace," he stated to a Kootenairi  representative before leaving- for  the capital, "that that country with  all its -mineral wealth and timber  lying untouched and unworked,  should be neglected for so long.

The  ore is being  taken   from  a point almost at   the  summit  of the famous  Paddy's  peak.    ,   Although   its existence has been.known of since.'; the  early days, it has been covered;with  snow most of the time, and  at (east  during: ihe lime that C. F. Caldwell  has been  iu   control, has   been impossible to get at.     The- extremely  light snowfall   the   past   winter has  made it possible to get inlo   the ore  shoot this  summer.    Judging from  appearance  the vein  matter around  the   shoot   has     eroded   for   some  depth, but   this   has   been, replaced  by a quantity of loose rock that has  slid down from higher up.     The ore  body   is   nearly five   feet  wide, and  no idea can   be   obtained as to how  far this width extends.     At the present time   two   men  are   taking out  fifty sacks per  day, while   the third  man is   engag-ed   in   constructing a-  trail to   the   mine   camp a thousand  feet below. *  GRANBY BUYS PART  OF SNOWSHOE CLAIM  Ore Will be Conveyed Through  Gold Drop Tunnel���Average  Assay V/> p.c. Copper.  Inquiries   at   the Granby   offices,  confirm the rumor that   the Granby  Consolidated   have   concluded   the  negotiations for the purchase of the  mineral rights of about-one acre of  the Snowshoe mine, the property of  the   Snowshoe    Gold   and   Copper  Mining   company.      The   area   included in the  deal  is situate on the  south-east    corner     of   the    latter  company's   claim, and the   body  of  ore known   to   exist  will  be  easily  and   economically  handled   through  the tunnels   of the  Granby's  Gold  Drop   property, which   immediately  adjoin the  new purchase.     The ore  in question is said to contain .1^ per  cent in   copper, and values   in  gold  and silver to  the  extent of one dollar  per ton.     Chas.  ,M.   Campbell,  assistant supt.   of the Granby company,   is  authority   for   the   above  particulars, but declined  to divulge  the price paid.  --. ,. ---*,,.*.. official-Visits ��� ���- >���^��-~:"  ' W.

The  railway, offering the shortest across-  America route, will be in   operation]  two years   hence.     In   anticipation,  the    company   is   investing-  several  rhiJIion    dollars,     preliminarily,    at  Prince Rupert in immense terminals,  dry dock, steamship  lines,   etc.,  in  addition to  an   hotel   now   building  from the plans of F. M. Rattenbury,  which is to be the largest and finest  in Canada.  The Government, in accepting the  location of the railway terminal at  this point, retained a quarter interest, first choices, in the'townsite,  and is therefore the major owner,  with the railway company, of the  city. In consideration of this interest it has been justified in advancing moneys from time, to timeout of the Provincial Treasury to  promote the rapid and substantial  upbuilding of the city,' the growth  of which has consequently been so  phenomenal that utilization of the  government's reserved areas has become    imperative.

The town in this case  is to be at Port Granby, or Granby  bay, says a coast contemporary.  The townsite is adjacent to the  Granby company's mining camp  and smelter site.  The "Spanish Prisoner" Fake  J.  W.   Hannam,   who  only  last  week was rejoicing in  the advent of  a son and heir, received the distressing- information that  he  has  a relative in the jug, in Spain.     The poor  fellow is a  Russian banker, and by  some sureptitious  means  has managed  to   forward    a   letter   to   his  cousin Jack,   in  Phoenix.    The unfortunate  prisoner  asks very  little,  a few dollars to  aid him in securing  a paltry $240,000 which  is tied up  in America.     The writer must have  received,  at   least,   a life sentence,  and evidently has  little  hope of enjoying the  $240,000, for he  states  that John is  to  be rewarded with a  third of the cash and the interest on  the remainder during: the   minority  of his dear daughter, whom he says  it is his solemn duty to care for and  adopt. No communication or money  is to be forwarded to the prison, as  the   writer   informs    Mr.   Hannam  such procedure is not allowed.   The  address  given    is   Antoine Agndo,  General Pardinas 56, Madrid, Spain.  A request is also  made  for a cable  message,   and  above   all,   absolute  secrecy.      The writer signs himself,  Volkoff, Prison of Madrid.  This is but another attempt of  the same old fraudulent scheme  that was tried in England years ago,  and which has.cropped up ever since  with a brazen persistency that is  truly remarkable; Many people  have been bitten in Europe and not  so long ago it engaged the attention  of the British police.  B. C. Copper Company  Some of the British Columbia  Copper directors are said to strongly favor increasing the dividend at  the quarterly meeting next month.

F.   Perkins,   of Colville/ ar-J  rived in   town  on Saturday last for  the purpose of visiting his son, W.  X.   Perkins,   agent  for   the   Great  Northern, and incidentally to take a  rest, his health  of late having been  somewhat indifferent.     Mr. Perkins  is one of the now rapidly diminishing band   of patriots,   who   at' the  call of the devoted Lincoln, sprang  to arms and for  four years engaged  in  the most sanguinary battles  of  modern times and by their self-denying devotion, sealed with the blood  thousands,   preserved   the integrity  of the United States Republic.    Mr.  Perkins was among  the  first to respond to the call  to arms, and entered the service  under   the   colors  of   the    First   Minnesota  Infantry,  transferring after two years in  the  field,    to   the   First  United  States  cavalry,   with  whom   he   remained  until the   close of hostilities.     Mr.  Perkins   carries    in   his   coat   lapel  the    modest  bronze button,   signifying his membership in the G.A.R.,  the  silent   memento    of   cheerless  nights    in    bivouac   and   tiresome  marches during that mighty epoch-  making struggle.

Gives $200 to City Band  At a meeting of the city council  on Wednesday last, D. J. Mathe-  son, the mayor, presiding, a communication was read from George  Cain, bandmaster of the Phoenix  City band, asking the council for  a subscription for the purpose of  purchasing new instruments. The  request received a favorable hearing,  and, on the motion of Alderman A.  D. McKenzie, seconded by Alderman Geo. Rogers, a grant of $200  was unanimously carried and ordered paid. Accounts to ihe amount  of $1-13 'also received the endorsement of the finance committee and  were ordered paid. During the  absence of D. J. Matheson, A. D.  McKenzie was appointed to be acting mayor.  and opens up. There are  water powers, lumbering prospects,  mining, wharfage opportunities and  even the possibility of a terminus  for a Ground hog railway.

August Skedine, a Scandinavian  diver, engaged at the new Great  Northern wharf, Vancouver, was  recently killed by the pressure of  water, he having descended to too  great a depth.  Constable-Lister of the provincial  police arrived at New Westminster,  last week, from Pemberton Meadows with an insane Indian; most of  the trip was done by saddle horse  and rowbow.  Otis Staples, a prominent lumberman of East Kootenay, whiie fishing  recently, accidentally got the hook  embedded in his eyeball; an operation was performed, but the patient  died a few days later.  The Kettle Valley News says  that ministers ought to be permitted to use their discretion in refusing to perform marriages, unless  evidence is forthcoming that both  candidates have been weaned.  Between the mouth of the Fraser  and New Westminster, there are  1200 Indians working in the canneries. When the bulk of the. salmon is packed, they all take part in  the hop picking at Sardis and  Agassiz.  Fred. Gunter, who was so badly  stung by bees, died at the Vancouver General Hospital, last week.  Almost ever since the occurrence  the. patient had been unconscious  and the doctors are puzzled to account for the actual cause of death.  B. Galgarrow, a miner, employed  by the Canadian Consolidated company's Molly Gibson mine, near  Nelson,   fell   into  a  crevasse   in   a  teacher's examination here, so I do  not see how I can get into anything  that is not indoor work.

Britain's Industrial Wealth  * The blue-ruin mongers who so  persistently of late have taken an  almost insane delight in depicting  the "industrial depression" in Great  Britain, might take comfort from  the following statistics from the  Board of Trade returns and the  Statesman Year Book, and those individuals who arc wondering where  the money comes from for the upkeep of the British navy will be able  to discern a "great light."  "Statistics issued by the Board of  Trade show that for all branches of  British trade the volume of trade  of 1911 was the greatest ever  recorded, exceeding that of both  1910 and 1906, the two earlier years  of maximum trade."  This appears to be a fairly good  record for a year which contained  two of the biggest strikes in the industrial history of any nation. Further down in the report we read:  "In all branches the volume of trade  was greater in 1911 than in 1910,  and for imports, re-exports, and net  imports the increase "of volume was  identical, amounting to 3.1 per cent  in each case. For exports the increase amounted to 3.9 per cent."  It will thus be seen that there was  a greater increase in the exports  than in the imports.  The Statesman's Year   Book   for  1912 gives the total exports for 1911  { of  the   United   Kingdom, Germany  and the United States as follows:���  whether elected or not, will go down  in history, as one of our greatest  presidents."  We will leave to others the task  of deciding whether the American  jurist's statement as to Canada's  laws is merited, but the fact is becoming more and more patent that  we in the Dominion are trading not  a little on the credit of the mother  country in the matter of the enforcement of laws. So much is this becoming the case, that we are occasionally reminded of our shortcomings by Americans resident among  us, and unless we become alive to  the way that things are drifting, we  vvill awaken some fine morning to  find matters here very much similar  to that which prevails on the other  side of the boundary line, a condition  which Judge Ballinger so greatly  deplores.

One  is   that  the   heavy  use   of dynamite  in  blasting   along  the lines of  railway   construction in  northern British Columbia, is at the  bottom   of  the  mischief.    Another,  and   still more reasonable supposition, is that  the recent volcanic disturbances   in   Alaska   are  accountable.     It   will  be remembered that  during the construction   of the main  line of the  C.P.R.   across  this province,   the    rainfall   was  excessive  throughout   the  entire   west.     The  noise caused by explosions has been  responsible for many  curious phenomena.      During   the   Franco-German' war  in    1870-71,   the   British  Isles  were   invaded   by   swarms  of  quail, supposed to have been driven  Out of France by the gun  fire of the  opposing    armies.      Whether    the  wholesale  blasting in the north will  have a   similar  effect  on   bird, and  animal   life   and  drive   them southward,   remains.to be   seen, but to a  certain extent this is the expectation  of many.

On   a  per  capita basis the showing in favor of  Great Britain is still   more  marked.  As an illustration of the supremacy  of Great Britain in   neutral   markets  let us take the two markets of India  and China, where all nations, are on  an absolutely equal footing as regards tariff treatment. From the  Statesman's Year Book we find that  whereas   the   United   Kingdom  ex-  were I  used, according  to figures compiled  by   the   forestry   branch  of the Department of the Interior, 80,016,000  pieces of elm,   in  staves,   headings  and   hoops,   as   against 37,704,000  pieces of spruce.

It is quite true that the commerce  of the United Kingdom has not in-  cieased in as great a ratio as that of  Germany, for the simple reason that  men do not grow as fast as boys.  It was inevitable that Germany,  which until recently was a country  of petty states, should develop industrially after federation at a ratio  which could not be expected of an  older and better established country,  but the fact remains that while individual industries may have suffered, while there may have been some  dislocation of markets, British industry as a whole, is still leading the  world and steadily expanding.  KNOB HILL AVENUE  An American Compliment  "When Champ Clark made the  statement that the United States  ought to annex Canada, I made one  lo the effect that Canada ought to  annex the United States, for in these  times of political turmoil, our country needs better government," said  R. A. Ballinger, formerly United  States secretary of the interior, recently a visitor to Vancouver.  "Canadian laws," continued the  distinguished visitor, "arc more conservative than ours.

In 1911 only 2,768,000 oak staves  were cut, while 7,293,000 were imported.  A rough estimate on the part of  of the forestry branch places the  minimum amount of material used  in the manufacture of all classes of  cooperage as 62,353,190 board feet  made up as follows: Staves, 29,367,-  714 feet; heading, 24,466,666 feet;  and hoops, 62,353,190 feet.

Darragh, ioienian of the government load gang, came in from the  camp on Tuesday. Joe returned to  his camp next day, taking with him  his trusty rifle to protect his hog pen  from the unwelcome attention ot a  prowling hear which has been sighted  in the neighboihood.  'PX7  With few exceptions there is little  change to  note in   the laws governing the  killing of game  in this district.     But there is one  or two that  will no  doubt be a  surprise  to the  prospecting fraternity.     Hitherto, a  prospector  carrying a free  miner's  certificate was allowed to kill game  in or out of season while plying his  vocation, but now  the law has been  amended  restricting the  free  miner  from killing game in organized dis-  districts  during  the   close   season.  He   may,    however,    if actually   in  need of grub, kill game in unorganized districts to satisfy his immediate requirements.     More game wardens have   been   added   to   the list  this year,  while  strict  instructions  have been  given   to  the  Provincial  Police   to   enforce   the   law   to  the  letter.    Another illusion  most of us  have  held, is  that  in   regard to the  killing and  snaring   of the so-called  rabbits.      According   to the   Game  Act, bunny   has been   raised  to the  dignity   of a   hare   and   his  case is  covered by that clause  dealing with  the season for grouse, which opens  in this district  on September 2 and  closes on December 31.     Automatic  shotguns  are  forbidden throughout  the province   and  no   trap   for bear  may be   set in   any locality south of  the  main  line  of the C.P.R.     Bear  shooting  opens on  September  1st;  he is protected from July 15.     Five  deer is the limit for one person dur-  the season,   which   opens  on  tember 2  and   closes  on   December  15th/     The penalty for infraction is  $100 or one month in jail,  or both, j  PALE BEER  Is Splendid for Family Use  That is the kind we have  for YOU.  on all work  iiouneeineiit.  if you bring this an-  DR.
