The Csmadian government which  has had two coast geodetic survey  steamers on the work tor the last  several months, lias completed  sounding's for a chart of the waterways in the vicinity of Hidden  Creek, and buoys and targets are  now being placed to mark the channel into Granby bay, where the ore  docks, smelter and power plant of  the Granby Smelter company are  located, according to J. P. Graves,  vice president of the Granby company, who has just returned from a  10 days' trip to Hidden Creek.  A postoffice and telegraph station,  in charge of the company surgeon,  lias been established in the Granby  offices, and three steamship companies, the Grand Trunk Pacific, the  Canadian Pacific and the Union, the  latter operating in connection with  the Great Northern railway, have installed agents at Hidden Creek and  are putting steamers on a regular  schedule between that place and Seattle, Vancouver and Victoria. The  name of the harbor has been changed  officially by the government from  Goose bay to Granby bay, and hereafter the latter name will appear on  all the government maps and chart..  TO COMPLETE PLANT IN YEAR .  "Everything is progressing splendidly at Hidden Creek, and we expect to have the smelter, power  plant, railway and' all the other  equipment at the.mines built and in  and the power plant and will begin  both contracts simultaneously.  "The railway lines from the  wharves to the mine and the smelter  has been located and the construction contract let, with the understanding that it is rushed to completion. The quarters for the engineers and the bunk and mess  houses for the men are completed  and an electric light plant, to furnish illumination in the mine and at  the smelter and dock sites, where  work will be prosecuted day and  night, is being installed. The plant  is but temporary and will be abolished when the permanent power  plant is in operation.  I1ASTI-N WORK  ON DAM  "A wagon road from the landing  to the dam site on Hidden Creek, a  mile distant, is practically completed, at a cost equal to what it  would require to build a railway,  and material for the dam is being  taken in. It is expected that the  power barrier will be completed in a  few months.  "We now have 200 men at work  in the Hidden Creek mines and the  property is showing up far beyond  our expectations. Every upraise,  tunnel, drift and crosscut is in ore,  and there is every reason to believe  they will excel our Phoenix proper-  tics, both in tonnage and ore values.  We already have between 4,000,000  and 5,000,000 tons of ore in sight  in the workings and the diamond  drills show not less than twice as  much more in which not a foot of  development has yet been done. We  have an enormous deposit there and  I sincerely believe the mines will  eventually become the greatest copper producers in the world."  MINING INSTITUTE HAS  SESSION AT GREENWOOD  Copper Mining Industry of British Columbia Under Discussion���  Interesting Paper by E. Jacobs���M. E. Purcell Elected  Chairman for pnsuihg Year.  (Special to the Wiooniv I'ionoor)  The thirteenth general meeting of  members of the Western Branch of  the Canadian Mining Institute was  held at Greenwood, oh Thursday,  June 27. In the unavoidable absence of the chairman of the branch,  Robert R. Hedley, and at the request of the members present, the  chair was taken by Frederick Keffer,  an ex-president of the Institute.  Among the visitors present was  Hayes W- Young, .instructor., in  metallurgy at Stanford University,  California, who was in the district  obtaining information relative to  the operation of the local Boundary  copper smelteries.  The ballots for the election of  chairman and members of the  branch council for the ensuing year,  having been counted by the scrutineers, their report was submitted to  the meeting, the secretary subsequently announcing the unanimous election of M. E. Purcell to  position of chairman of the branch  for the ensuing year. " The new  chairman is the superintendent of  Consolidated Mining and Smelting  Co.'s Centre Star group of Mines  in Rossland. With few exceptions,  the election of the other officers  were unanimous; only three of the  candidates receiving any opposition,  and only   one   vote   apiece   at that.  The chief subject before the meeting was that of the "Copper-Mining  Industry of British Columbia," in  connection with which there was  a paper read by E. Jacobs, giving  historical, statistical and general in-  information concerning the joint industry as a whole. This was supplemented by some interesting particular's of Voight's group of mineral  claims and others on Copper mountain, near Princeton, in the Similkameen, by F. Keffer; "Notes on the  Method of Handling Ore on the  Surface at the Centre Star Mines,  Rossland," by M. E. Purcell; the  "Consolidated Mining and Smelting  Co.'s Smelting Department, Trail,"  B.C. COPPER MANAGER  SUCCUMBS TO INJURIES  Hurt in Auto Accident���Prominent in B. C. Mining Affairs.  While proceeding to Phoenix on  Saturday last, at' a narrow part of  the road near Cropley's ranch, the  big auto of the B. C. Copper turned  over and ran for some distance  down the hill. All the occupants  were thrown out, but escaped with  minor injuries, with the exception  of E. G. Warren. He was driving  the car, and had his chest crushed  by the steering wheel, breaking  several ribs and sustaining severe  internal injuries. He was taken to  the hospital and it was thought that  his recovery was possible, but unfortunately this hope was dispelled  on Wednesday evening, the patient  sinking and passing away early on  Thursday morning.  The death of Mr. Warren, which  T ���    , .   ���.T .     ��� took place on Thursday last, the re-  by James  Buchanan;   and   "Notes j     ,*.... ...  suit of injuries sustained in an auto-  on Copper Mining in the Coast  District," by W. M. Brewer of Victoria.  ln the course of his paper, Mr.  Jacobs mentioned that the smelting  of copper ores commenced in the  Boundary district in 1900, and that  the aggregate production of copper  in the province for all years up to  the end of 1911 was 452,281,000  pounds. Boundary mines had produced 301,574,000 pounds, as, compared with 84,201,000 pounds from  the Rossland mines.   The coast dis-  mobile accident, will be a distinct  loss to the mining and smelting  fraternity of the province and a  severe blow to the British Columbia Copper company, of which, the  deceased gentleman was general  manager. At Greenwood, in which  city he resided, the news of his  death was received with sorrow by  its people, while here in Phoenix  where he was almost as well known,  the deepest regret is expressed on  all sides at his untimely decease,  and genuine   sorrow is'manifest for  A LIGHT  [!W".

They left Phoenix on  Sunday morning- in the fine 30 h.p.  Overland car, which the former's  company had secured for a purchaser in Kelowna. Picking up  an expert chaffeur at Rock creek,  the parties travelled by way of Oroville, Osoyoos, Fairview and Penticton, at the foot of Okanagan  lake, which was reached in the  phenomenal time of less than seven  hours actual travelling. Owing to  washouts on the road between Penticton and Kelowna, the journey  was completed by boat, and the car  delivered to the purchaser in first-  class running condition.  158  finished, t!he gang under Jos. Dar-  ragh, would be set to work somewhere near the Summit camp.  His orders are to construct the finest possible road, and, bearing in  mind his proved ability as a road  builder, there remains little doubt  but that the orders will be obeyed  to the Jetter.  Dominion Day Accident  While returning on Dominion  day from the festivities at Rock  creek, a rig containing Mr. and  Mrs. W. A,'Pickard, Miss L. Pickard and Mr. and Mrs. Bert Lang,  while negotiating a curve between  Midway and Rock creek, turned  clear over, precipitating the occupants into the road. Fortunately,  all escaped serious injury, with the  exception of Mr. Pickard, who sustained a bad dislocation of one of  his shoulders. Not being able to  secure surgical treatment in Greenwood, the journey was completed to  Phoenix, where Mr. Pickard's injuries were attended to by Dr.  Verrall, who has the patient under  his care in the local general hospital.'

M. LAINQ, Proprietor  The White Slave Traffic  A terrible picture of this, trade  in the bodies and souls of British  girls is painted by Dr. Eltie Sayer,  in the London Times. Writing-"' in  support of the bill, now before the  House of Commons, Dr. Sayer  states:  "There are many people who are  still unaware that, probably, no day  ever passes  without several  of our  gills being  duped  and  trapped and  sold into American and  Continental  houses, whete  life lasts ��tt the most  five to  seven  yeais,  terminating'  in  lingering deaths of the most harrowing nature  which  the  medical  profession is   ever  called  upon to witness.     The   trade    is tremendously  lucrative   to   those   engaged   in  it.  Geneial Bingham, head of the New  York  police,   stated  in   the   official  government   report   that   at  a   low  estimate 15,000 fresh girls were imported in 1909.  One syndicate alone  was   making   an   annual   profit   of  $200,000.      Further,    that   in   the  burial lots ol one of these organizations, were 451   nameless' graves of  girls,  clc.      Since   then   legislation  has been  obtained concerning landing at  that port;   but the effect has  only been to change the route of the  tiaffickcrs, and  they   now  enter the  States through Canada.     The situation   in   South   America,   especially  the Argentine, is even worse.      The  pioposed British Act does not touch  questions    involving    the   personal  morality   of   individuals,    but    will  make   the   stealing  and   selling  of  girls a  felony,   instead  of  a misde  meanor as at present, and  render it  altogether  too  dangerous  a proce-  Civil Service Age Limit  A good deal  of anxiety has been  caused   in   various   departments   of  the civil service by the action of the  civil  service   commission   with    regard to the age limit for promotion.  The commissioners have recently refused   to   issue   the   ceitificates   required by law in  some eight or ten  cases,   on   the   grounds   that    the  cleiks  concerned are  over 65 years  of age.1    Up   to  a few  weeks  ago  nothing had  ever been heard in the  service as  art age  limit,  except for  letirement, and naturally those who  are affected  by the rule, which Professor Shorlt states will   be in effect  until  the  cabinet  council  definitely  deals   with  the   matter,   are   somewhat anxiou*   as  to  their future in  the service.  "The question  has been raised."  stated   Professor  Shortt when  seen  about the matter,   "and as the commission announced,  rules have been  put into   effect   similar  to   those in  force   in   Great   Britain.    We have  asked  the  cabinet  council   lo deal  with the whole quesrion.     It is only  as to promolion the  rule will apply,  and only  to  those G5  years  of age  or over.     It will apply to all the inside service.   The question has been  gone  into  thoroughly  by  the commission, and   until  the government  takes some action,  promotions will  be  suspended   to those  of or above  this age.     If the  council  decides to  leave it  simply   indefinite  we  shall  govern ourselves accordingly."  ft, v  /? -* ij  |n___  ____���_ i  1   ���>  <> <-  The New Edition of the  COPPER HANDBOOK  CANADBAN  ilf^i'^^iV'?- -' *  * prepiiration."*. ^r  insfcpiibli.lied, \<i Vplumc X, foi tho j'cms 1010-  3911, and roquuodt neatly" oighteeu mouths in  EXCURSION  ������~'rC  "in-* x^-r*j   ���"���    k   *    t  i  t  I  iit  ��,_-��� ��- MillriiB, Iioac_nng, Smoltlng, 3loflning:, Brandp,  ,".

The   ease  with which  these cunning and skil-  ful people must sometimes, with the  promises  of mairiage,   of   splendid  situations abroad,  etc.,  be able  to  secure their prey was   illustrated by  an   incident   which occuned  in  my  practice about a fortnight ago.   The  patient was a waitress in the restaurant of one of the most flourishing  drapery establishments   in  the west  end.    She had succumbed to a form  of blood poisoning probably brought  on by the unhygienic conditions under which she had been living.    She  said ber wages were $1.50 a week,  that she was   provided with   a good  dinner   and-supper,' but ��thatl- no  gratuities   were   allowed,   and  that  out of the $1.25  she found her own  breakfast, paid  for her room, laun-  diy, clothes  and  tram fares to  and  from   a   quarter   of the   city whete  the lodgings were cheap.      In addi  Salvage Declined  The White Star officials state that  the Cunard  company   have declined  to accept remuneration for the Car-  pathia's   services    in    rescuing   the  Titanic's survivors.      With the permission   of   the   Canard   company,  the   White Star line have presented  Captain   Rostron   with  $500,   while  the surgeon, purser and  chief steward were each the recipients of $250.  All the  other members   of the crew  received  a   month's   pay.     Captain  Rostron,   who is a native of Bolton,  Lancashire,   received $10,000 from  the readers of the New York American.     The Liverpool Shipwreck and  Humane  society  also  awarded him  their gold   medal,   and   the   United  States   Congress   voted him   $1000  and   another  medal.     Every one of  the Carpathia's crew received a gold,  silver   or    bronze   medal   from    the  survivors.  !

She went on to instance firms; some  of   them    royal   warrant    holders,-  where everyone   of the girls where  to be found on   the streets at nisrht,  and to explain  how  easy it was for  them, ha\ ing once entered this life,  to disappear for  good   without any  suspicion    being   aroused.      These  girls leave   the  board  school at 14,  that   often   their   parents   are   too  poor  to   support   them,   that   they  have  been taught   no  religion, and  have received   no proper instruction  whatever  about    the   mysteries   of  life, and that they are far too young  to  enter  respectable  domestic  service.     But  they  are not too young  for  the   white   slave   traffickeis.     I  was recently told   that   British girls  were the  "most fashionable"  in the  worst houses in   Paris.     Until these  tacts���and  similar   ones���are  sufficiently   known   and   understood,   it  appears impossible  to  come   to the  rescue   of girls,   who,   sharing the  common  knowledge that there is a  teal,   urgent   and   honest   need   for  more   women   in   our  colonies,  are  being    deluded    with     pictures   of  blight  prospects, and  will continue  to leave our  .shores   lor  slavery and  death, today and tomorrow and the  next day, and the next, until legislation is   obtained."

In the mine were found two skeletons, the elder one in a kneeling  position as if assisting the younger  one. At the inquest it was proved  conclusively that the skeletons were  the remains ot the above-mentioned  lost miners.

She has  a  large   follovving    and, many   other  ladies    have   gathered    round    her  standard.     The news is both interesting   and  timely,   for after all  is  said,  the  socialism   now advocated  is  but  a thinly-veiled effort to  destroy the   religious  sentiments arid  beliefs   that  have   undeniably   been  a  strong  comfort   to  millions   and  carried us so  far on   our-journey of  progress    and   enlightenment,.and  which  has   incidentally  given  us; a  liberty (not perfect by any ���' means),  but infinitely superior to that which  novices on economics and  soap box  reformers   are   striving  for.

J  Canada's 41st Birthday  Monday last was the 41st anniversary of Canadian confederation,  the entry of British Columbia taking  place on July 1st, 1871.- On that  day this province joined hands with  the rest of the country and con-  sumated that which for years had  been regarded as but a dream���a  united Canada���a British North  American Confederacy, stretching  from the Atlantic to the Pacific.  Since that eventful day, all has not  been smooth sailing for B.C. There  has arisen times when the people of  this province developed a tendency  to break away; in fact the advisability for such a move at one time  was freely and openly discussed and  feeling ran high throughout the  province. Happily, however, wiser  counsels prevailed, and at the present time there is no mote devoted  province to the confederation than  that of British Columbia. Strictly  speaking it was not until the advent  of the present government at Ottawa that the full rights and prerogatives of this province have been recognised.

It removes altogether the issue upon  which public interest was largely  centred, for Sir Charles Fitzpatrick  and Mr. Justice Anglin, who are  Roman Catholics, join with their  three Protestant colleagues. Sir L.  Davies, Mr. Justice Duff and Mr.  Justice Idington, in stating without  qualification or evasion that the Ne  Temere decree has no more force or  effect iu Quebec, so far as the civil  law is concerned, than in any other  province, and I hat Protestant ministers have the same right as priests  of the Roman Catholic communion  to officiate at mixed marriages.  Hereafter, therefore, any person  suiri.esting that a Catholic who has  been married to a Protestant by a  Protestant minister is not married  at ail in the eyes of the civil law, is  liable to bo dealt with as is any  other slanderer.  There remains but one issue of  importance. Has a Protestant minister or any other person authorized by the statute to perform the  marriage ceremony in the province  of Quebec, the right to marry two  Catholics, or can Catholics in Quebec be legally married only by a  Catholic priest?
