The Granby  Co. employs 500 men, and  has ii monthly pay roll of  over $50,000: Two railroads  afford access to the city.

The   line  ofthe Kettle Valley railroad is also  lent results, and the much-sought-  forlead encountered by running another drift higher up than the old  one..  ��� ������; . ��- :   Guns From Phoenix  Number 3  In the matter of practical patriotism  British Columbia is well to the fore.  Every city and community in the province is straining a point to share a  burden of the gre^t task the Empire  has in hand. Phoenix is not a whit  behind any of them, and as a matter  of fact is  far ahead  of  many of this  Mining Notes of British Columbia  ia  nmamwmMBsmmam  ti'ioro pretention!, cities.

It is the non-completion of  this railway that has proved  the only factor  in   retarding   the development of what is   undoubtedly one of  the richest mining fields   in the province.   A great deal of development  has been carried out on tbe Gloucester group, and some rather-high assays in both copper and values have  been reported from time to time.     .  J. D. Galloway, assistant provincial  mineralogist,   who   has  visited  procuring Held comforts and Red Cross  supplies, whila for four -mouth's the  sum of approximately $800 has boon  subscribed monthly by employees of  the Granby mine and others in the  city, including the work of the Woman's Patriotic Socioty, and the subscription from various sources, it would  be safe to say that up to the present  the entire amount collected would  total not far short of $5,000.

All  reports agree that the discovery is  genuine and of large proportions and  value.  Win.   M.  Brewer, mining  expert  in the employ of the Provincial Government   returned  Sunday   from an  examination of the prospects on Si-  wash   Creek.      The   following  day  was spent at the Murphy mine, near  Hope   Station, and  on   Tuesday be  left for the  23-mile   on   the Skagit,  where a week  will be spent.    After  an examination of the Gibson  property on the Boundary- Trail, the ex  UP  miles from   Prince   Rupert.    E. C.  Chrystal of Vancouver, has received  optimistic letters from   his partner,  J. D. Wells, who is developing the  claims in which they are  interested,  Mr. Wells says in   part:     "We are  at good  hard   work   building camp  and opening up the Cordillera property.    The latest discovery is a wonder for gold.    You can see the. precious yellow metal in  large   chunks  all through the quartz, and   we propose to ship some Ore as soon as we  get  some  sacks   from   the   Granby  smelter.    The shipping ore   will go  $165 in gold, silver and copper, and  we have about three  car  loads, 90  tons, in sight.

A shaft  sixty feet deep discloses  a nice vein  ���of chalcopyrite,   in   a   granodioriie  formation.    The Dominion company  ran a tunnel   for a  distance  of 215  feet   to   crosscut    the   vein,   which  brings it 50  feet farther  in   the hill  than   the   bottom   of thelshaft, and  then raised 93 feet  from /the: end "of  the tunnel,  the  face of which is 30  feet above the  bottom of the shaft,  without striking any ore.     It is probable that the vein   is badly faulted,  thus "accounting  for its non-appearance.    The   vein as   exposed in the  shaft   looks' very   well,    and   it  is  claimed that the values are sufficient  to make a> good paying propetty if  the continuance of the vein could be  located."

With  this object in view, a provisional committee, consisting-of the mayor, Messrs  J.E.Thompson, N.J. Carson, and G.  W. Rumberger, commenced a canvass  ofthe city on Friday, and within two  hours the response was such as to leave  no doubt of the ultimate success of this  new appeal. It is also suggested that  it may be possible that there wilTbe  a further increase in the promised  usual monthly subscriptions and a revision of the distribution of the fund so  that a portion of it would be diverted to  the purchase of another gun or guns.  The proposed meeting for the purpose  of passing the famous resolution pledgr  ing our support in the prosecution of  the war to an honorable conclusion, will  be held ni the opera house on August  4th, the anniversary of the empire's declaration of war. The chair will be oc  cupied by the mayor, and a program of  patriotic music has been arranged.

Mine Superintendent Myers who  is operating the Gold.. Basin mine  located in the Mount Baker district,  and about thirty miles from Chilli-  wack, was in the city over the week  end, on his way to Victoria, where  he expected to dispose of some  $4,000 worth of gold taken from the  working's. Mr. Myers exhibited one  lump which weighed five pounds and  was worth $1080, and claimed to J  have at least four of them. The  mines are the��� property of Judge  Scott and associates of Seattle, and  work has been proceeding."on't^  property for several years. At  present twenty three men are engaged, and much modern machinery  has been installed.���Chilliwack Progress.  Favorable reports are comingfrom |  so we can work all winter." A report just published in one of the  northern papers states that assay returns on quartz from the Cordillera  show values running 1312.9 ounces  in silver, making the- value of the  sample run at the rate of $26,309.75  per ton. This is much in excess of  the average placed on the shipping  ore by Mr.Wells, but the news is of  later date than the letter, and it is  possible that some strike of extremely rich ore has been made.  The Cordillera group consists of six  claims, and was only staked about a  year   ago, but   at   the   present time  Mr. and Mrs. J. G. Mullen returned to town on Saturday last from a  three,weeks' vaction   trip   to points  in   California.    The former reports  travel very brisk in the sunny south,  the great centres of attraction, being  the  expositions at San   Diego and  San Francisco.    The travellers were  among the visitors  to the latter and  were  delighted   with    the   splendid  J showing   made    by   the   Dominion.  While they were there the Canadian  pavilion was  crowded with visitors,  who seemed   to   take  a tremendous  interest   in   the   exhibits   from   this  part of the empire.   Speaking ofthe  visits they paid   to the German section, Mr. Mullen  says  he may have  chosen  a  slack   time for them, but  every   time    they   went   there   the  crowd of visitors was very  small iu  comparison with those in other sections of the fair.     "It was very noticeable," he says,  "and I remarked  it at the time to Mrs. Mullen."  The  Krupps   had   no    exhibit,   but   the  United   States   government   had   a  wonderful and interesting exhibit of  modern   naval     armaments    and   a  number  of lecturers.     The weather  throughout the trip was delightfully  fine, the hottest weather experienced  being between   Spokane   and   Phoenix.  Killed at Anyox  Miss Joan Arnoldi, who holds the  commission  of lieutenant in Canada's  expeditionary  army, speaking  at Victoria  the other day,   paid   a  glowing tribute  to  the  women  of  Canada who,   she   says, flooded the  receiving  rooms   in   England   with  thousands  of parcels for, Canada's  soldiers at the froot.     In the course  of her speech she was *j*ood enough  to  mention    a  few    of the  places  whose women had been particularly  active   in   the  good work,    It  will  be   recalled   that Miss Arnoldi was  the lady to whom the local Spinster ,  club   in   its   last  dying   throes   bequeathed a legacy of forty dollars to  be   spent on   the pnrchase of comforts for the   Phoenix  boys who, at.  that   time   were  floundering in.the  mud at Salisbury, but  who in their  letters have never mentioned having  received   the  slightest benefit from  the cheque.  Killed By .Lightning  The storm which raged over this  district, on Wednesday,-was responsible for the loss of one life, that of  T. C. Cummins, an employee of  the   West    Kootenay   Power   and  Light company. He was found lying on" the ground about two miles  from the sub-station, at Cascade,  of which   place  he   was   in charge.  Edward B.

I saw the Gourkas, and you  can  tell   any   pro Germans   that we  saw their friends making tracks for  the tall timbers, with the  little men  after them.    There was one brought  into the   field   hospital when   I was  there.      The    nurses   found  twelve  pairs of ears on him.     He  had  'em  nicely cured   in smoke   to   show his  people in   India   what   he  had been  doing at  the  front.     He   kicked up  an   awful   row  when   they   tried to  take   them   off him, and only cooled  down when   the nurses   promised to  let   him   have   them   back when  he  got better.     We hear that there are  quite a   number of pro-Germans  in  the   Boundary   and   we   talked   the  matter over.

I have seen quite a  bit of France, but of course we have  not seen   the  gay   side of it yet.  However, I was in some very  nice seaside places during the time  I was in hospital and convalescent.  I was suffering from the concussion  caused by a shell which I got in action at Festubert.

But while condemning the unpatriotic conduct . of these unprincipled  vampires, let us not Jose sight of  the important fact that the government of Sir Robert Borden haive  sanctioned the appointment of the  commission that has brought .to  light the identity of the guilty ones.  To read some of the Opposition  comments on the scandal, for it is a  scandal, one is almost led to infer  that the pernicious practice had only recently made its appearance in  the Dominion, but who has forgotten the colossal corruption that  Sir Wilfrid Laurier's government  allowed to run rampant in the Yukon during the early years of the  gold excitement', and more pitiable  still, who can forget the point-blank  refusal of Sir Wilfrid to appoint a  commission of enquiry into the  charges.

So much meat has been  exported that the price has now  reached a prohibitive figure.  The Nova Scotian government  has cabled London that the collieries  in that province are capable of producing 1000 tons of coal daily which  they consider   equal   to the  Welsh  product,   and    urging    the   British  authorities to give the same a trial.  General   Krog,    one   of  Botha's  chief burgher commanders, has  secured invincible proof of the German  intention   to  conquer  the whole   of  South Africa.    The plans of the plot  were found by his  soldiers in Dam-  araland.  A remarkable discovery was made  in one ofthe Allied armies recently.

Probably no district in the Dominion of Canada possesses so great an array of  potentialities as the above.   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 of great  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 ofthe 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 the  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, te-  gether 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 ofthe 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.     The highways throughout the Boundary makes this section of the province the motorists paradise, millions having been  spent on the construction of government roads.  ��� No locality is better served, with  railroads  than  the  Boundary district.     At  present this section is served by two of the greatest systems on the continent, the  C.

The canned   pack  of salmon  on  the Columbia river will be the largest  in   20  years,   was   the  opinion expressed at Portland, Oregon, recently by State Senator Robert S. ,Far-  rell,   head    of   a   packing  concern.  The heavy run of fish this season is  due, Mr. Farrel! believes, to salmon  propagation, and the placing of millions of  fry   in   the   Columbia   four  years ago.     The record  pack  in recent  years   was   560,000   cases   in  1911.  King Constantine, who is said to  have made a wonderful recovery, is  not likely to take any further active  part in the government ofthe country, and his son, Prince George, will  be, it is expected, nominated Regent.  Queen Sophia of Greece, the Kaiser's  sister, is reported to be preparing to  leave the country for good, having  received intimation that Greece is  shortly to enter the war on the side  of the Allies.

Large  reinforcements of Gurkhas and Sihks  are being poured into the territory  from India and those of them who  are already there have proved of  great value in bush fighting.

Acton, who were  in town a short  time ago, soliciting  orders for hair goods, were up before  the Rossland  magistrate this week  charged with being concerned in the  'robbery of  a  number  of diamonds  from Mrs. A.   Boileau of the American hotel.    The stolen articles were  -    not found   in   their  possession, but  evidence   was  given   that they had  both   made  enquiries   of   Rossland  and Nelson jewellers for the price it  would cost to   set some stones.   On  being   requested   by   the   police   to  show the diamonds, Acton produced  a   fake   diamond,    but    an   expert  swore that   that  was   not   the   one  the accused  showed him.     It had a  flaw in it, the same as one described  by  Mrs.   Boileau,   from  whom  the  goods were stolen.  The chief of police, had made enquiries about the accused,  and from  Chilliwack had   been  informed  that  Acton was known there as aworthless  cheque artist.     He was mixed up in  , a case concerning the robbery from  a C.P.R. cash register, but was  acquitted for want of evidence.     His  wife   made   herself  very   agreeable  *" with women; she displayed great interest in the contents of trunks, and  made a specialty of enquiring about  old-fashioned jewelry and   precious  stones.     Both the aocused were sent  up for trial. " i  those present were a large number  of invited friends. Dancing figured  chiefly in the program, and a song,  "Are we downhearted;" by R. K.
