Array !iS��:��b>sSw^��&&^  i  B.C. Mining  ' Messrs. Miinro and Gillis ' are  visiting- the scene of the recent  strike on French creek; .they are  accompanied by a, well known  placer expert.     < .  '.Mining men are deeply interested  in the recent rich strike of free gold  iii   the   Coronation   mine,   on  Cad-  ��� wallader  creek,   Bridge   river   district in the Liliooct,  ' The annual .statement of the  Crow's Nest I'ass Coal company  shows that operations in 1911 were  conducted at a loss of $200,546 as  Ihe mines were closed the greater  part of the year owing to lahor  troubles. . The production of coal in  1911 was 359,450 tons against  1,209,762 tons in 1910; coke production was 60,659 tons against  194,498 in the previous year.  J.   R.   Cranston,   real  estate  and  mining- broker,   returned  this week  from a  visit  to  the  Ttilameeu  diamond fields,   located   ten miles west  of the town  of Tulameen,  where he  has   been   for   over a   month   past,  says   the   Rossland    Miner.      Diamonds are  found  in a large olivene  dyke,   which   is half a   mile   wide,  stretches   for   five   or   six   miles   in  length, and   in the  sand  and gravel  in places covering the dike.     Those  so far found range from the   size  of  a pin   head   to the   dimensions of a  kernel  of wheat.     Small   diamonds  are worth   about $90 an  ounce, and  are in great demand.  ,  A. W. Thompson, a diamond expert, from South Africa, has been in  the   Tulameen    diamond'   field   for  several months past.      He says that  the   formation   there   is   similar    to  other diamondiferous sections.    He  says there is.considerable  bkic^clay  and    the    deposits    resemble   those  found  at Kimberley   and   other diamond   fields   in   South Africa.     Mr.  Thompson is prospecting the creeks  and river benches   in  the vicinity of  the Tullameen fields and says he re-  yards it as a most promising section  for   diamonds.        He   believes   that  chimneys in the blue clay and iu the  olivine dike will yet be found containing- valuable diamonds.  Dan Coutney, Mr. Cranston's  partner, has several uncut South  African diamonds, and when these  arc placed in a pan with the Tulameen diamonds, the" .only perceptible  difference is that the latter are  brighter and clearer than the former,  Messrs. Coutney and Cianstqn  own six full claims on ' the olivine  dike; also ten acres of diamondiferous placer in one place, and eighty  acres in another.  In the placers there is considerable platinum and gold. . Platinum  and copper occurs in the leads Tuning through the dike on which  Messrs. Cranston and Coutney have  staked claims. Diamonds are also  found in the leads.  A syndicate of New York capitalists, interested in 'diamonds, are  negotiating1, with Messrs. Cranston  and Coutney for the purchase of  their claims. Their intention is,  after they have acquired control, to  work the property principally for  the precious stories and platinum.  Several claims in the Summit  camp, near the Tulameen in -.the  Hope mountains, have been bonded  to it Mr. Jennings and others, of  Spokane, who have a force of men  engaged iu developing them. The  ledges in the Summit camp carry  good gold values in gold, silver,  copper and lead. Deals are pending  for two other groups in the same  camp, and parties were looking over  them when Mr. Cranston was thereT  The principal -values in the latter  groups being copper. ��� Several placer  outfits are operating on the TulsU  meen and Granite creek, and are  securing profitable returns in both  gold and , platinum.^_The gold is  course and easily saved. s      *  SIFTON'S DESIRABLES  IN TROUBLE AGAIN  Doukhobors at Grand Forks to  Defy Authorities���Gets Three  Months' Imprisonment.  Vast Deposit of Coal Discovered  An exibit of coal, recently discovered by John D. Rice, 2)/2 miles  west of Okanagan Lake, and half a  mile from the Kettle Valley railroad  grade on Trout creek, West Stim-  merland; can be seen in the windows  of E, Foley-Bennett's office, Main  street.  The coal is bituminous, and of a  high-class quality; according to an  analysis made by Provincial Mineralogist Robinson; to whom a sample  was submitted. The coal is outcropping, 300 yards, but a drift has  been run in several feet by Mr. Rice.  From three feet the seam has widened to five feet in the few yards already excavated, and is of blanket  formation, covering, as far as can  be ascertained, an   area  of several  ' '  C '*'.  acres. Rights to a mile square of  the land has been claimed,  c Prospects iri'the!;Squthern Okanagan, will be brighter for the discovery. Not far from the locality,  a silver mine was recently opened  up, which gave showings stated to  be $200 to the ton of ore.  The.,.land surrounding the coal  mine belongs to the Commercial  Orchard Co., but right of way has  been secured, so that freightage will  be simple when the "��� Kettle' Valley  railway is finished; "���".';���". '  .That great benefits, wijl result  from the find,' is assured. There  are several mineral claims in the  vicinity, whose owners are only  awaiting the advent of the railway  to proceed with work on their property. Add to this prospect the certainty of having coal to smelt the  ore obtained, and the possibilities  for future development are beyond  estimation.  Mr. Rice -will develop his find  with thci aid of  a   few   companions,  City Parliament  A meeting of the Phoenix city  council took place, on Thursday  evening, the mayor, J. D. Matheson, presiding, the others present  being Aldermen Geo, Rogers, W.  Prcndergast, A. D. M'Kenzie and  Thco, Biner. Included in the business transacted, was the municipal  rate by-law for 1912, which passed  its final reading, fixing the rate at  22 mills on the dollar. A communication was also read from A. S.  Hood, stipendiary magistrate, requesting payment of his salary,  which was among the accounts ordered to be paid. The judge also  notified the council of his intention  to resign, but as this is a matter  which directly concerns the Attorney-General's department, no action  other than filing the communication  was taken. The finance committee  having endorsed the following accounts they were ordered to. be paid:  Phoenix Electric Light Co..$225.70  About $2,000 has already been  subscribed for the second annual  Greenwood Fall , Fair, without  counting the grant that will be given  by the government.' Tbe fair promises to be a great- success.���Ledge.  The Doukhobors settled in British  Columbia   promise   to   become   as  troublesome   as   summer  frosts.   A  few days ago,  Geo.  Stanfield, Provincial police officer in Phoenix was  despatched to the   Douk settlement  near Grand   Forks  to investigatea  case   of  the unauthorized  burial  of  an   infant.      The  officer   found the  information   to   be correct,   but all  his inquiries as to the whereabouts  of the  father of the dead child .were  sullenly   ignored;      It   leaked   out,  however,   that the man wanted  had  been    spirited     away    to   Nelson,  whither the  officer went in  pursuit,  and   arrested   his   man.       The   accused   was    brought  before   Police  Magistrate    Cochrane,    of     Grand  Forks, who  found  the -Douk guilty  and sentenced him  to three months'  in Nelson jail. ;���''  The Douks now have openly declared their intention of defying the  authorities. One of them expressed himself as follows to an officer:  "What for you come and take us  to prison. Russian policeman do  that! When Doukhobors first come  to Canada, government say, 'you go  long, do-what-you please.' Now  you come for poll tax and want us  do this and something-else. All the  same Russia. You know Jesus?"  The constable modestly admitted  that he had read considerable about  Him. "Then why you take us' to  prison?" was the parting shot of the  bevuhiskerecL-one.i-'. >    ��� - -"-    ,- -  The    first    move    to    outwit   the i ---������- i ., ,,��� ,     . ,    c ., ,  authorities    was  .made last    week,   *��� value of the   coal   seam  is  fu���y   the knovvn bad record of the animal  when   they   ploughed   up   and   har-   established.-Penticton Herald. | ^ was driving, and as preveatatwe  rowed ���  the < settlement    graveyard, I ', .     *     ~*  making it impossible for the officers 1 ,    -  to   keep   tab    on   the   new   graves.)

Mr. Biner, who is substantially interested in the Phoenix Brewing  company of this city, will now devote considerable of his time, if not  all of it, to the management of the  Colin hotel, which is situated in  close proximity to the Great Northern station at Grand Forks, Few  hotels in this country are more  favorably and advantageously situated than is the Colin, and those  acquainted with the new tenant's  business ability as a manager are  prophesying a new and prosperous  era for that well known Boundary  hostelry. Mr. Biner has expressed  his intention of converting his new  purchase into a first class establishment, an undertaking which will be  haijed with unbounded satisfaction  by transient and resident boarders  alike. The hotel, in addition to the  accommodation, contains about 20  bedrooms, and the bar. is to be supplied with the products of the local  brewery, the excellence of which  has made the name of Biner famous  throughout the southern portion of  British Columbia.  Removing More Machinery  Samuel Potter, formerly master  mechanic of the Snowshoe mine, arrived in town this week from Rossland. His mission here is the taking down and shipping away of the  large motor at Boundary falls, and  also the removal of certain parts of  the War Eagle mine compressor,  all of which are to be shipped to  the Consolidated company's headquarters in Rossland.

In spite of every effort he  has been quite unable to locate his  parent's domicile, and has now  called in the aid of the provincial  police.   B. C Mines Safer  Thomas Graham, chief inspector  of mines who has returned from  attending the United States mine  inspectors institute, at Columbus,  Ohio, and visiting testing stations  and mines in Pennsylvania and Illinois, told the Colonist, that while  there was much to take advantage  of in their experience, he finds mine  operators here as ready to adopt  modern safeguards.  Inspection he finds more elficicnt  in British Columbia than in any of  the coal mining states, owing to  better discipline, and the fact that  the B. C. inspectors have much  smaller districts and cover them  more frequently.

J., are expected in Edmonton in a few days,  where they will outfit for a trip into  the extreme northern parts of Alberta and British Columbia. The  hunters are being sent out by the  authorities of the Smithsonian In-  stitute of Washington, D.C., and  the object of the trip is to determine  the northern limit of the habitat of  the Big Horn sheep of the Rocky  mountains; to ascertain if in the  northern part of British Columbia  the Big Horn'and Stoni sheep occupy the same territory, and to capture specimens of both varieties,  also white goat, mountain caribou  and brown bear, ,  The expect to be away three or  four months, and propose travelling  to the end of steel on the Grand  Trunk Pacific railroad on the Frascr,  in British Columbia. Then, by  canoes, paddle by way of the  Crooked river to the Parsnip.  From the headwaters ofthe Parsnip  the explorers will make a portage  to the headwaters of the Peace river  and re-embark, also visiting the  gorge.  The two naturalists will 'explore  the mountain wilds on both sides of  the Peace river, shooting such specimens as they desire and photographing the country. They expect to  secure many photographs of wild  life in its native haunts.  The Canadian law, which  forbids  the  exportation  of mountain sheep  and  goats  and   caribou,  has   been  withdrawn  in  this  case  at  the  request   of the  Smithsonian  authorities.    Mr. Vreeland hunted mountain  sheep  and goats   in  the  Canadian  Rockies several years ago, and one  ofthe finest  mounted  specimens of  goat to be seen in the United States  now adorns the parlor of the Mont-  The Most Important Divisional Point on the Main  Line of the Grand Trunk  Pacific, and the Junction  Town of the Celebrated  Hudson Bay Railway.

Davisson, Western writer,  says:  "During 1912 Melville has an assured milling capacity of 425 bbls. daily;  her municipal and structural energies  will exceed one million dollars; the  business of her banks are increasing  monthly; while her railroad and postal  revenues are making tremenduous  strides. By the fall Melville's round  house will be 28-stall capacity, as  against the 36 stalls of the Canadian  Pacific at the railroad city of Moose  Jaw. Yet Melville was born~iii,1907  and Moose Jaw in 1882. Within the  uext decade or possibly much sooner  Moose Jaw will have lost her lead on  the younger traffic centre in the northeast���and Melville and Moose Jaw will  be Saskatchewan's greatest twin centres of transportation."  Fortunes were made by the early investors   in   Prince  Rupert,   Calgary,  Edmonton, Regina, Saskatoon, Moose  Jaw and Lethbridge.  Now, in   its   infancy, Melville  has a  Samuel Sydney, a farmer near  Biggar, Sask., convicted in a lower  court of manslaughter for permitting  his wife and teu-year-old son to  leave his roof on a cold night last  winter when they lost their way and  Thoroare25chapter., and the book coven, U*> jsajd Mr. Gradwell,    "in view of the/ future brighter than" any other newl froze to death, was found not guilty,  and    the   conviction    against    him j  squashed.  Celebration in the Far North  Special to I'hoonlx Pioneer'  Seven hundred braves of the  Cree and Beaver tribes from various  parts of the north country, headed  by Chiefs Kcenescw and Mustus,  sjarbed in their gaudiest apparel and  accompanied by squaws and  papooses, assisted by the, Catholic  clergy of the Athabasca diocese,  assisted at the celebration of the  golden anniversay of the priesthood  of Bishop Grouard, the oldest  missionary in the Dominion. The  celebration took place at Grouard,  north of Edmonton, Alberta.       ,  The Indians attended the reception, where addresses were delivered by Samuel Cunningham, a  former member of the territorial  legislature; Bishop Joussard, Miss  Kate McDermott, daughter of  Mayor McDermott. High Mass  was celebrated by Bishop Grouard  assisted by Father Orcalan of Rome  preached the sermon. The services  were followed by a public banquet,  at which addresses were delivered  in English, French and Cree. A  parade, in which a squadron of the  Royal North-west Mounted Police  tookjjart, was the feature of the  afternoon, and in the evening there  was a presentation of a drama, entitled "Life of Bishop Grouard in  the North," written by sisters of  the church.  The   Indians,  who  were  camped  along the northern shores of Lesser  Slave  lake, passed   the   rest  of the  week in sports, including horse and  pony races, cowboy, running, jumping and  dancing contests and tugs  of war.     The dances vividly recalled  the  time  when   the   red  men   held  full sway over the vast northlarid.  At  the   close   of the festivities the  gathering broke up, the braves and  their people  returning to their habitats   in   the  woods,   many of theni  travelling   by   the   most   primitive  means of transportation.  Bishop Grouard is a native of  Brittany, and came to Canada in  1860, completing his theological  studies in Quebec. Encountering  many hardships in the north, he  worked with Catholic and Protestant alike, and did much more than  any living man towards civilizing  the native Indians.

A CLASSIC ON CONSUMPTION  Words of a Prominent Canadian Citizen  as He Has Viewed the War  Against Consumption  "Men, women, and children are all  being mowed down every day by this  fell disease���consumption���and it 'is a  mistake."  These words of Mr. Edward Qurney,  Spoken at a gathering in Maskoka a yeax  ago, may be fittingly termed a classic on  consumption.  The records of the Maskoka Sanatorium,  as do those of other institutions of a like  kind, on this continent and in Europe,  show very clearly that this much dreaded  disease can be, and is being conquered by  the treatment followed in any well-managed  sanatorium. In our own Province, within  the time that the hospitals in Muskoka  have been in existence, the death-rate from  consumption has been reduced twenty-five  per cent.  The life-saving possibilities of the sanatorium in Canada are limited only by tho  means required to cany on and extend the  work.    For this reason we very cheerfully  ask our readers to help in the great and  growing   work   that   is   being  done   aft  Muskoka.  It is a fine statement for the trustees of  I the Muskoka Free Hospital for Consumj  | tive.i to be able to make, that from  i month of April, 1902, when this institution  I ivap first opened, up to the present day,  j not a single patient has ever been refused  ; admission to this hospital because unable  ! to pay. ���    '  PhQSphohol 1?^,^.^^^^ i r Mr.   W    J.

The action of the Federal premier in recommending Mr. Perley to the His Royal Highness the  Governor-General is a commendable  one, and should meet with the approval of every class of Canadian  citizenship.  "PROPER CLOTHES  J>  Our stock of suits covers the entire range of good clothes for  men and young men, and is unusually rich in beautiful fabrics and  new models. It is our ambition to sell absolutely the finest clothing made in Canada, and in featuring the "Proper Clothes" brand,  we feel that we have the best ever. These garments show for  themselves as regards  PERFECTION OF FIT;   QUALITY OF FABRIC;  VARIETY OF PATTERN ;  EXCLUSIVENESS OF STYLE  together with high-class tailoring. They offer the advantage of  immediate selection, and give confidence and courage to the men  who wear them. "Proper Clothes" are good credentials and em-  hasize a man's good taste and refinement. If you want to appear  at your best, this is the store to come to.  In Lieu of Reciprocity  The following   is  a summary of  the speech recently delivered by Mr  Frank   Beer,   retiring   president  of  the Toronto branch of the Canadian  Manufacturers' association: .  "The one event of outstanding  importance since our last annual  meeting was tlie federal election,  which resulted in the downfall ofthe  government upon the reciprocity  issue. It would be useless to attempt to disguise the fact that the  west, Alberta and Saskaskchewan is  keenly disappointed over its failure  to obtain access to the larger markets of the United States, and so  long as that feeling of disappointment prevails, it can not be said  that reciprocity is dead.  "Nor can we afford to close our  eyes to the fact that these provinces  feel aggrieved with us in the east  for the part we played in thwarting  their desires.  "No amount of specious argument or flag-waving will allay that  feeling or satisfy the west that it  has not been robbed.  "Wider markets the west must  have, but for its Own good as well  as for the upbuilding of Canada as a  whole, let us hope that they will;  come through the development of  diversified manufactures'west of the  great lakes.  Boom conditions may be expected  to prevail as long as construction  continues and the people keep pouring into the country but if prosperity  is to be laid upon a permanent  foundation there must be provided  for the population more variety of  occupation than farming and real  estate speculation.  "The Made-in-Canada train which  has just returned from the west we  hope, has caused the country's old  men to see visions and the young  men to dream dreams of a prairie  broken at frequent intervals by busy  towns and populous cities, where  hives of industry afford   the   farmer  Visits Crows' Nest  Hon, W. T. Crothers, Minister  of Labor in the Dominion cabinet,  accompanied by a party which included Mrs. Crothers, spent Thursday in Fernie and Coal creek, says  the Free Press. The ministerial  party arrived in private cars.  The' Minister of Labor is spending the parliamentary recess in  familiarizing himself with industrial  conditions throughout the Dominion  so far as U is possible in a tour of  the country. The information which  he gains will be invaluable to him  in conducting tlie affairs of the newest and one of the most important  portfolios in the cabinet.  Yesterday  afternoon  the visitors  were't'ajcen to Coal creek,  where in  company with   mine   officials   and  officers of the Miners',Union,  an inspection   was  made  of the  surface  workings   and   interior   of   a   coal  mine.   V It  was   evident   that   the  minister   was  deeply  interested   in  everything he saw and   that he was  anxious  to  acquire all  possible 'information first'hand...    When he re-  turns .to  Ottawa he will at least be  familiar   with some  of the  termin-.  ology of coal  mining, and will have  some idea   of the  difficulties  under  which  the black diamonds are put  on the market.

KNOB HILL AVENUE  The Acting-Premier  Ministers of the Crown, both  Imperial and colonial, have had a deal  to contend with and legitimate criticism has always  been welcomed by  most  of  them.

L.    Borden,     in    England,    is  about the limit.     The awful information   is,   however,   true,    which is  more than can be said of the puerile  vaporings of the present day Liberal  Opposition.  The roll of loyal British  ministers who first   saw the light of  day under an alien flag  is anything  but a small one, while some of them  have   contributed   more   than   their  share in  upholding the  dignity and  safeguarding the intcicsts ot departments    committed   to    their   care.  Prominent on  the  list is that brilliant   master   of   finance,   George  J.  Goschen* a former Chancellor of the  British   Exchequer,   who originally  came from Germany.     Vet throughout his   whole   useful   career  in   the  service   of   Crown   and   country  no  finger of suspicion  or reproach was  ever   raised  against him.      Coming  existence, its influence with both  press and people is already being  felt throughout the province. Copies  of the book can be obtained b}' addressing the secretary, P. W.

Chamberlain, president ofthe Grand  Trunk Railway company, while in  Edmonton a few days ago, that unless unforeseen labor troubles arise,  the main line of the Grand Trunk  road will be completed between  Fort William and Prince Rupert,  before the close of 1913. This will  give Edmonton access to the Pacific coast by the shortest route and  easiest grade through the Rocky  mountains, opening up a large new  territory for trade development and  industrial growth. Mr. Chamberlain said also that companies friendly to the company were now building roads in the Peace river country, which will be ready for traffic  before the winter of 1914, and  added that the company's steamship  service between the Pacific coast  and the   orient will be opened noon.

The writer asserts that  the naval arrangement provides for  $7,500,000 as Canada's minimum  contribution to the navy. In return  Canada has not put forward any request, but it is understood that the  British government will put forth  its best efforts to meet Canada's requirement in regard to a subsidy  toward a steamship line between  Canada and the West Indies, also a  subsidy (towards the "All Red"  steamship route which has already  occupied attention in both hemispheres. In the latter case the sum  suggested was $1,250,000 a year.  It would be a condition of the "All-  Red" steamship route that money  shall not be given to any line now in  existence, and that it must have a  complete scheme for fast steamers,  not merely between Great Britain  and Canada, but also between Canada and Australia.  Mr. Churchill is expected to make  an announcement on the naval aspect of the matter in the House of  Commons in a few days.  Conferences arc occurring   daily  in London,   and   the   eyes of all   in  the Umpire are rivetted on its nerve  centre,  the  great metropolis.    The  Canadian representatives are  being  received  with open  arms, and feted  by   royalty   and     commoner,   alike.  It is  even said that interest in their  visit is being watched with feverish  anxiety  by   the great war lords of  Germany.     We are  moving at last  in the right direction.     The time for  platitudes has past.     The Canadians  are now looking for actions.  The Westminster gazette,   refer-  ing to Mr.   Borden's statement that  the British   Parliament is not truly  Imperial,   says:    "We are   glad  to  see the idea thrown out, and during  the next few years hope to see it in  practice.     In thought and language  the self-governing communities and  British    parliamentary    institutions  are developing naturally in a federal  direction, but  a definite scheme can  hardly  at present be submitted  by  the United Kingdom."

New Strike of Copper-Gold Ore  Mat Trevvhella   has   made a new  strike on the Phoenix of heavy  sulphide ore carrying- a large   percentage    of   copper.     The   strike    was  made at a   point   a   couple   of hundred feet further down the hill  than  at the place where the ore he recently shipped  was   extracted.     Mining-  men who  have  seen   the   ore  pronounce it to be as  good   looking as  any yet   found   in   the   camp.

Rossland  residents have visited the Phoenix  since it was made in considerable  numbers.  One result of the strike in the  Phoenix and elsewhere, is that it is  appreciating the value of leading  mining properties in the South Belt.  Mineral claims that could have been  purchased for comparatively small  sums a few months' since are now  considerably enhanced in value, and  higher prices arc being asked for  them.���Rossland Miner.
