It  is stated that 5,000,000 tons of orve  have been removed by a glacier and  deposited over an area a mile square.  This ore is recoverable.     No accurate estimate can  yet  be formed of  the probable extent of the deposit,  and the season's work   will   be  dir-  tal of tbe upper tunnel being driven  at the Indian   mine, on  the Salmon  ected  *o  obtaining   information   in  this direction. Samples of the ore  brought to Vancouver show it to be  of high quality, analysis being as  follows: Silica, 6.72 to 11.33, per  cent; iron, 57.38 to61.6; phosphorus  0.05 to 0.12; sulphur, 0.3 to 6.12;  manganese, 0.07. A test was made  on the ore by the Bethleheir) steel  works of Pennsylvania, and the report was favorable. _ , -  Scotch steel interests, to whom' a  shipment of the ore was * forwarded,  have.arranged; to investigate .tie  proj^rty this sumnuBj-^with a view-to  shipping. -thi^pi*|tc��'|5GuSgo,w, &U  Panama Canal, ��i^e��^|i��hto^u^W.  and steel works on the*, coast. < Ore  can be brought'out by way of Bejla  Coola or Bute Inlet by construction  of a   railway  seventy-two miles in  river, a fine shoot of galena ore has  been recently struck. The adit was  driven following the vein and the  shoot of ore encountered is believed  to be the same shoot opened up on  the surface. After striking the new  ore body the face of the tunnel, was  enlarged, showing the1 vein to  measure six feet in width. v Roy  Clothier brought in some splendid  samples of galena from the face of  the tunnel.  ���-���* * - ���      - .  -  Impressed by the- extent' of the  mining operations "in, the Slocan  district, and greatiyljntej-ested in  the ore'bbdy which haV been struck  in the low level of the Slocan Star  mine, the famous ore body at the  Standard, the large bodies at the  Bluebell and the new mill at the  Hewett mine, Messrs. C. H. Brown  and T. C. Brown of -?ocorro, New  Mexico, with R. B. Paul of Den-;  ver, Colorado,   and   Lewis G. Row-  The   far-reaching   plans   of   the  Granby' Consolidated   Mining  and  Smelting company for the development of the mineral resources tributary to the northern coast of North-  em British Columbia, as well as  of  Vancouver Island and Southeastern  Alaska, were outlined to a representative of the Vancouver Province by  J. P. Graves of Spokane, vice-president  and   general manager,  before  leaving here on June 27 for the company's  new  base  of operations at  Granby  Bay,   Portland  Canal   dis7  tricf. -   On his tour of inspection Mr.  Graves was accompanied by A.   C.  Flumerfelt  of   Victoria,   a   fellow-  director,   F.   M.   .Sylvester,   acting  general manager, and G.  Wooster,  treasurer.  "Our initial outlay for the improvements now being carried out at  Granby Bay will represent an investment of $3,500,000, all of which has  been .provided for by the board of  directors," said Mr. Graves. "This  sum will cover the cost of properties,  development, a smelter with a capacity of 2,000 tons daily, a converter,  dam and ��� power house, a railway  connecting the'mine and smelter,  and ore docks. We have 1000 men  employed "now, mainly in smelter  construction   work, ' and  expect  to  are unequalled elsewhere in the  world. This is indicated by the  numerous favorable reports which  have reached me, not only from our  experts, but from other parties  equally well informed. There appears to exist well mineralised areas  easily accessible to the scores of inlets and bays that indent the coast  to Behring Sea.  .        REFINING IN VANCOUVER  "It is my firm conviction that the  tim* is coming when all the refining  of copper matte  containing copper,  gold and silver values, will be  done  on. the   Pacific  coast,   probably   in  Vancouver,   owing  to  its  superior  location as the terminal of transcontinental railways and its exceptional  shipping ifacilities.  ,VAt present all this work is done  in the Eastern States, whence the*  copper as well as the other metals,  are distributed in the markets of the  globe. Conditions for the establishment.of a refining industry in Vancouver will be greatly improved with  the opening of the: Panama Canal, as  the naming companies "jviirbe in fc  position to take advantage of the  lowest rate offering by boat or rail  t6j' reach the . chief centres of con  sumption on this1 continent 'as   ��*��������, *  .  as  to   reach   Europe/     China   Bnd|izers ?f tbf d*nce-  Phoenix Men Reported Drowned  Dan Ashley, foreman for a firm of  sub-contractors, recently. arrived at  Fort George and reports the loss of  five scows and seven men.   The disaster occurred in the Grand canyon  of the Fraser.    The loss ,of life by  similar accidents since the work on  the construction of the Grand Trunk  commenced,    has. been   unusually  "heavy,     twenty-six   scows   having  been lost during this season alone.  Imthis connection we might mention that considerable anxiety among  the friends of Jos.   McNeil  and his  brother,   formerly of  Phoenix,   has  beeny.occasibned by a recent newspaper report of the drowning of two  men in  the Fraser, possessing similar-names.    The   mishap  is   stated  to have occurred a few miles from  tfamJoops,   and    as   both   of   the  brothers are known to have been in  that   neighborhood   a   few   weeks  ago, some substance is given to the  report of the accident.    In an effort  to solve the truth,  the Pioneer has  communicated some of the facts to  Provincial   officer,   Geo.   Stanfield,  who  has   promised   to   make   the  pecessary enquiries.  Must Register Births, Etc  The'new Act respecting the registration of births, deaths and marriages, 1913, is now in force, and  requires in , the case of births, that  the father of a child must register  the birth of such child with the district registrar within sixty days.  Registration of marriages are attended to by the officiating clergyman and the issuer of the iicense.  In the case of deaths, the necessary particulars must be supplied  to the district registrar before interment takes place. However, this  information can be furnished by the  undertaker in charge.  The penalty provided for violating  any of the provisions of the Act, is  a fine not exceeding $50, or three  months' imprisonment, with or without hard labor. Children born in  Phoenix are registered with W. R. .  Dewdney, the government agent at  Greenwood.

Tunnels, shafts and drifts have been  blocked out and proven up   the ore  bodies to a point 6S0 feet below the  outcrop on the top of the mountain,  and in addition diamond drills have  encountered the same characteristic  ore below the bottom of the   lowest  workings to a depth of 300 feet below the sea level.    This ensures an  available tonnage far exceeding the  probable production during my lifetime.  READY TO INVEST  "Granby Bay will be an important  centre.   The town will be lighted by  our own power plant.     We are now  building a hotel, hospital, recreation  hall, concrete store and  warehouse,  clocks, etc.    We  expect  to  do for  Northern    British    Columbia     aud  Southeastern Alaska what we  have  already accomplished   in  the Boundary district.     The reduction works  will   be prepared   to  smelt custom  ore   from   every  district   and   lead  stacks will be added if a silver-lead  ore tonnage should be forthcoming.  The smelter has been   laid  out in a  manner to provide   for   its  enlargement to an   ultimate  treatment  capacity of 6,000 tons daily, a figure I  hope to see reached ere many years  elapse.   . It  will be   the definite and  settled policy of our company as well  as to assist prospectors to  develop  their properties, or to buy mines outright; or to acquire a substantial interest in them.     With this object in  view our engineers   for   two  years  past   have   been   examining   mines  tributary to a coast line 3,000 milts  long.  "I have long been of the opinion  that mining in that region is still in  its "ir;!     v, and.that the possibilities  of industrial and commercial life  "The Granby Consolidated has ar  ranged to secure a coke supply for  smelting purposes from Fernie, B.C;,  and from Tacoma. It has already  made contracts with the Crow's  Nest.Pass Coal company and with  the Pacific Coast Improvement company of Tacoma."   ����   Important K.P.

It has now leaked out  that Madero had fears of an invasion  from the United States and was  secretly in league with the Japanese  government from whom he expected  assistance. Thousands of Japanese  soldiers were to be poured into  the country  under the guise of col-  along the frontier and .up and down  the west coast, upholding the regime of Madero.  In the meantime, the colonization  of a big slice of the country by the  little brown men would go on.

FIRST STREET AND KNOB HILL AVENUE  Advice From the Times  ! Rear-Admiral T. Mahan, rehired,  the noted United States naval ex-  pert, contributes a long letter to the  London Times on the American attitude towards Japanese immigration lo the States. The Admiral  lays down as the main reason wliy  the little brown men are not wanted  is because they cannot assimilate  with the American people.  The  Times   in   an   editorial   expresses sympathy  with   the attitude  1   A Political Chameleon  ^ Sir  George  Ross,   who   led    the  Senate Opposition   that  resulted in  the   turning down  of the Naval aid  -  bill, had a deal  to say against Canada accepting Imperial advice.    But  as late as   1910,   he   held quite the  opposite   opinion, and  thought that  when it  came   to   naval  matters at  any rate, the proper place to obtain  that advice was at Whitehall.     The  following were his  views only three  years ago:  "While I am not mufch impressed  with what is called the German  scare I think the duty of England  is.plain, and our duty is equally  plain; for the conquest of England  means the conquest of Canada.

Mahan's statement that /'immigration with us implies naturalization,"  states that while even the lowest  types of inhabitants of south-eastern  Europe rapidly become American  citizens of a sort, the Japanese remain a race apart.  The Times adds: "America already possesses in the negro an  alien mass, which it cannot assimilate, and does not want another.  The American eagle has a powerful  digestion, but it is not an ostrich."  Tbe Times expresses the opinion  that the opposing forces in America  and Japan are essentially irreconcilable and may some day prove to  contain very explosive elements.  Without wholly condemning the  Japanese, the Times urges them to  pursue their desires without menacing language and to remember how  many, deficiencies they, still have to  make good. It concludes by saying:  "Japan's immediate need is greater  clarity of thought."  Montreal Suffering Too  The special war taxes that are  being levied in Germany have  brought out the fact, that over  there, like here, ' land speculation  has been rife, and small margins  have been used to handle large properties in expectation of big profits.  It would, today, be an enormous  advantage to Montreal had our real  estate boom taken the form that the  German boom took.'

All  provincial constables and firewardens have again been appointed  agents of the department to enforce  the regulations made for its extermination.  Several remedies   have  been proposed, such  as ploughing deep just  before  the   flowers   open,    or   the  stems may be mowed down and the  land plowed just as the new growth  appears.    The new stems must then  be cut down at   intervals during the  summer.      Deep  ploughing   in   the  autumn has also  been found useful.  The  chief safeguard,   however, is a  regular short rotation  of crops and  thorough cultivation.     A three year  rotation,   including two   cuttings of  early red   clover   for   the  first year,  followed by  deep  fall ploughing for  hoed   crops   with   clean   cultivation  and a cereal crop  for the third  year  will   suppress   it.

On being asked by His   Lordship  if he  had anything to  say why  he should not be  sentenced,     the     prisoner    "simply  looked  vacantly at  the judge and  smiled.      Having  ascertained   that  the    prisoner  understood   English,  Mr. Justice Morrison sentenced him  to be hanged on September 22.  Paul Spintlum is the Indian who  in company with another of his  tribe, terrorized the country to the  north of Ashcroft for over < a year.  Special squads of police were out  from time to time endeavoring to  secure their arrest. The actual  crime, howe'ver, for which Spintlum  was sentenced, was the shooting of  Constable Kindness -who"; was one  of, the officers looking, for. him.' The  prisoner was first tried .at the Vernon assizes, but to the surprise of  everybody the jury failed to agree,  thereupon the Crown applied for a J  change of venue which was granted.

The  premier  expressed  his  pleasure    at    the   fine   exhibit   of  .minerals which the chamber has on  view,   and  stated he had  no   idea  that  anything    so   ambitious   had  been   attempted  by   the   executive,  whom he congratulated most warmly.

It  was  stated  that there  were   many  unemploped  persons   in   the    city  and   adjacent  municipalities  and that  the provincial authorities could utilize the surplus of $7,000,000 in buying up the  bonds which   the   council could not  float owing   to   the present state of  the  mpoey   market.     A  resolution  setting forth   the Trade  and Labor  council's views   was   passed   and "it  was decided   to communicate  with  the municipal councils of Vancouver  and vicinity to  urge   them' to make  fipplication on the  lines suggested.
