Instead of invitiug mining men  to come to Spokane for the Northwest Mining convention this year,  the big annual gathering of northwest operators, engineers and prospectors was held in Rossland, B.C.-,  Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday of this week.  The plans for an excursion to  Rossland were completed by Frank  C. Bailey, secretary of the Spokane  Mining Men's club.  A   revival   of   the   memories    of  pioneer days in the minds of veteran  Spokane   mining     men     has     undoubtedly   taken   place.     Many   of  them were instrumental   in   placing  Rossland   before   the   world   as    a  mining centre.    It   is   the   first   excursion   of  consequence   that   ever  has been sent from this side  of  the  line into the Rossland-Trail   region.  About   100   persons   made   up    the  party.  No citizen in Phoenix took more  interest in the recent masi|ui ratio  ice carnival and the outcome than  did Danny Dean, sr. His .hree  children took an active pari, arcl   in  New    York.,     Feb.     8. ��� Lord  Shaughnessey, in an interview, said:  "Canada is in   a  better  position  now commercially, industrially   and  financially than she was a year ago.  The great improvement is due partly  to   the   increased   business    arising"  because    of   war     conditions,    but  mostly to the  bountiful   crops   with  which the dominion has been  favored.    The purchasing power   of  the  producer has   increased   and   is   reflected in the   general   improvement  in merchatidizing and traffic.  "I look for a continuance of this  activity for some months. Of'  course, like all countries where  agriculture is the basis.of wealth  and prosperity, the question of crops  will again become vital. But I  can not help feeling that we have  passed over the worst period, have  surmounted the most formidable  obstacles and that Canade is on the  up grade again, a brave, strong  young nation.  "I hope we will move with caution  and conservatism, being   careful   to  glimpse what is around   the   corner  before we leap too far.     Perhaps   I  am not as optimistic as I should be.  but I try to look  at   things   from   a  business  man's   standpoint.     There  is no   more   reason   to   close   one's  eyes to favorable signs than to  shut  them to unfavorable signs.     I   have I  tried to strike a balance and   1    find  that it   is . distinctly   promising   for  Canada."  ac  The Store of Quality  FISH  FISH FISH  Card of Thanks  Finnan Haddie  Black Smoked Cod  Smoked Salmon   -  Bloaters    -       -      -  Kippers     -  20c. lb.  25c. lb.  25c. lb.  20c. lb.  20c. lb.  each race they entered   won   prizes.] and assisted them.

Kay, Publisher.   '  minister of mines,shows clearly that  he is alive to the interests of the  office of which he holds the portfolio. The point taken by the  minister in regards to the department -making a close study of a  properly previous to expending  money on roads, trails and bridges  is well taken.  The recent financial stringency has  made this ministerial resolve more  and more apparent. By instinct a  paddler of his own canoe, the^miner  and prospector in years past has dis-  tained to ask assistance; but now,  when adversity has turned inside  out the pockets of one who never  said die, the new minister is but  living upto the motto set by his  predecessor, the Hon. Sir Richard  McBride, who believed that When  necessity demanded, the original  producer should receive government aid.    ������  Five years ago at North Bend,  John Stout, an Argunot of '49, related to us an incident that showed  the willingness of the department  to aid mining men.  ' Stpu't was afraid that his claims  would revert to the government because of his inability to' perform  certain work; in' lieu of* which he  would have to pay cash.  "Never mind, John," said the  minister of mines, "do your best; if  you fail the department will protect  you., You old timers always paid  wrfen you had the money. It is  only right the government should  help yo'u in return."  So it is with the Hon. Lome  Campbell, the new minister'' of  mines. Now that they are unable  to make these improvements for  themselves, the government intends  to aid them.

After making a close and unbiased  examination of the financial statement and report of the City of  Phoenix for the year ending December 31, 1915-, we have come to  the conclusion that it contains less  intelligable information than is  usually found on a Chinese lottery  ticket. Such being the case, we  would recommend interested ratepayers to write the inspector of  municipalities, Victoria, for an  elucidation of this vexing problem.  Notice has beenMssued by the  authorities at Ottawa^ that the  Austro-Hungarian paper Svoboda,  published at Jersey city, New Jersey,  has been barred from entry to  Canada, and that any person having  a copy of that publication in his or  her possession is liable to a fine of  $5,000 and to imprisonment for five  years.

The mountains throughout its entire length and breadth,  are almost without exception mineraliferous, 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 ofcgreat  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 tlie  best equipped free gold properties in the west,..a not inconsiderable asset in these days  -of industrial depression and shrinkage of gold reserves. It is in this district where 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, and  surrounding it for miles on all sides, are acres of crown-granted mineral claims', all  awaiting the advent of the investor. The 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 visit to some of its spendidly equipped orchards will prove a revelation to the stranger.

NatJrally there have  been  adverse comments on what - appears  an arbitrary measure to fix the price  of  a   commodity   which    England  must obtain abroad  and  chiefly  in  the United States.  As the Canadian Journal of Corn-  such  a    ruling  might    prevent'  British     munition  manufacturers from obtaining  copper. m "In   that   case    the   British  factories" will   have  to   close,    and  the orders for  munitions   will  have  to be sent to the United States   and  Canada,   where  manufacturers   are  free  to  buy   their  copper  in   such  quantities and at such prices as   the  market conditions may allow.    Such  a result would   not  meet  the  pur^  poses which the government had  in  They    desired     to     guard  against  the  excessive  price of an  article absolutely   necessary  in   the  production    of    munitions.     Th^y  f may have to come to the conclusion  that it is better to have copper at a  high price than not to have it at all:i"  The   wording   of the   ruling    is,  however, worthy  of consideration.  It states that no   order  should    be  placed at prices exceeding ^"100 per  ton   "without  first  consulting   the  director, of materials."    The  news  despatches have omitted  these sitr-  nificent words.  funeral were members of'Fje||top���n  Mge, the sisters lodge of u,e  Scandanavian Aid   and   Fellowship  and has  always   travelled   the   straight  t'lejand narrow path without a  slip  6r  wandering is about as probable as a  chicken with teeth would be.
