Another property in the same  neighborhood has been represented J  bp an ore exhibit, for in a store near  the Hotel Spokane there was on dis-  play a good-sized'heap of ore of excellent appearance.

'Hrsfmany friends throughout  this'section of the couutry will rejoice  toJearn, in due course, that he has  really struck'something rich.     .  An exhibit of silver-lead ore from  the group of claims . owned by the  Treasure Mountain Silvetvlead Company, made at the Spokane Hotel  during the ; American ������ Mining COn^  gress week in Spokane, attracted  much attention. This ore was from  a group of claims situated about 20  miles from Otter Flat, a small town  at the junction of Otter Creek with  Tulameen River, which gfoup has  been in.course of development by a  Spokane-syndicate since November  1911. The property is stated'to be  a most promising onej but at present  is without   transportation   facilities  r When in  Spokane  recently, says  E.  Jacobs,  the. well-known   chronicler of B. C.   mining affairs, 1   was  informed by Mr. J.   P. Graves, vice-  president and   general   manager  of  the   Granby   Consolidated   Mining,  Smelting and Power Co. /Ltd.   that  during the current year the whole of  the eight blast furnaces of the company's copper   smeltery   at   Grand j  Forks, boundary district,  had   been j  operated continuously oyer a longer  period than at any other time in the  history  of the company's   smelting  works.    There.;\vas little   interruption in the running of, the   furnaces  at "any time and, none^ at  all   during!  the period that.'commenced on June I  5 last, and ended  on. November  9.  This means that there was   continuous operation .of all   eight   furnaces;  for 156 or    157    consecutive   days, j  or   a   little   more  than five months. |  While figuresto show the total quan- j  tity of ore smelted   during   the   live:  months   under   notice   were not ob- i  taihed, it may be estimated that fully  500,000   tons   passed   through   the  furnaces.   .Such a   record   is   abtiu-  "dafit   testimony   to   the good   work  being done at "the Granby Company's  smeltery,"    especially    when     it    is  knOwn'thiit it was not done   at   the  expense of an increase in the   quantity of copper lost in the slag.

The course of action urged by Miss  Wylie was an immediate appeal'to  the Dominion parliament for votes  for women, and she urged insist-  aiice in the request upon the government until it was granted. Nothing was to be gained by patience;  all depended upon being insistent  and becoming a nuisance to those  in power. The speaker declared  that that course was more advantageous than An appeal to the provincial governments.  NOT ENOUGH OPERATORS.

Evidently    the    time   was ' extremely  opportune.'   But while the gift'from  Canada is' a splendid one and the  addition to the navy  very material,  it  is  the  moral  effect   of the  act  which will carry the most weight in  the' chancellories of Europe. '   According   to agreement,   the  ships  are to be built and manned,in Great  Britain,   but 'as far as practicable  they will be officered by native born  Canadians.    It will -be 'many years  before  a' purely  Canadian-manned  and built fleet unit  can' b�� formed  that would be ' strong enough 'to be  stationed on either'side of this continent, and' the' advocates of either  are a very short-sighted sii of gentlemen.     - What "'protection,' could  a'  couple of cruisers at Esqimault be to  Vancouver.'

The  eloping   ladies   all  show evidence of having departed in  haste and    although   they  possess1  little   ready  cash,   the  majority  of  them are well supplied with'quantities of splendid jewelery.    ,/he  es-'  cape of these ladies might be turned,  to good  account by tbe Canadian  government   who  might   induce  a  few of them to undertake A lecture  tour of the west where their experience of .sixteen   to  one   would do  v t  much towards offsetting the vigorous campaign now being pursued  by the  Mormon elders of Alberta.

The pressing- need  of- the  Dominion   is   not   battleships   for  home waters.     It is training ships  and Canadians to marin them.  ;.    The Opposition contend that if we  are to possess a fleet let us begin at  once    and   build   them   ourselves.  There    must    be     a'    beginning,  they argue.    This is very commendable,   too,   but  while   the   present  British  connection    is  maintained,  let us commence at the right end,  and allow   for grave  eventualities  that may   possibly   present themselves in Europe and embroil us as  well as the motherland.  The contention of some Liberal  papers that the gift of $35,000,000  to the British fleet amounts, to tribute, is absurd. Was it tribute  when Canada raised aUd outfitted  the troops  for   the  South  African  war?   ���_   A Prudent Bachelor  One good result of women getting the vote will be disillusionment  as to what the vote can do for them  and for those on whom they take  pity. As an example it is quietly  assumed by an able; correspondent  in this paper who signs 'A Bachelor,'  that men could, if they would, secure  to women as high a wage as men  get, and that women, when they  get the vote will decree that it shall  be so. It will soon be found that  neither man nor woman can do this.  The rule of an equal wage obtained  By tbe school teachers of Chicago,  but it was the women themselves  who got it rescinded. Indeed they  come to regard those who continued  the demand as unfriendly to them.  The result of raising the woman to  the men's standard of wages resulted  in the employment of men., ,Jn New  York, where the men have been reduced to the woman's standard,  there art none but women -applying.
