The suggestion of the Pioneer,  which was taken up by the- local  Conservative association, relative to  the stocking of Loon lake with some  variety of game fish, bids fair to be  ��� immediately acted upon. It will be  remembered that R. K. McCammon,  secretary   of the above association,  ���' communicated with Hon. Martin  Burrell on the matter, and the latter  took up the question with the Ottawa Fisheries authorities, who this  week ordered J. McLeod of the department to visit tlie lake and investigate. That "official was here on  Tuesday, and in company with the  mayor, J. E. Thompson and N. J.  Carson motored to the lake to size  up its piscatorial possibilities. Although the stretch of water has an  area of over two hundred acres, the  visitor was not" at all impressed, but  promised to recommend a trial of  10,000 of what are known as-Kam-  Ibops salmon:trout, 750,000 ofwhich  are .awaiting* distribution'"-at the Ger-  raVd fish hatchery on Kootenay lake.  It is unfortunate' that no other  smaller species were available, but  we understand that Jas. Schofield,  the provincial member for Ymir district, has - communicated with the  department,-- only recently,"strongly  recommending that steps be taken  to secure a few thousand speckled  trout fry from. Sheep creek for  distribution in the waters of his  district, and if this is done it might  ,Jje possible'"to9seguie a Jew thousand  for Loon lake? fTbe iatter would be  infinitely more suitable for such a  small lake as they rarely average  over 61bs, while the run for the  Kamloops trout is from ten to thirteen   pounds/,   Mr.   McLeod slated  " ~  ATS  ..'"V"        ,       ...  that the latleV were a splendid game  fish, full of fight/ ahd the flesh was  of a dark rich red color. They have  been caught at the hatchery weighing nearly forty pounds.  Returned From Sweden  Miss Esther  Ericson, neice of A.  O. Johnson, returned to Phoenix on  Monday, from  an,extended visit to  her home in Sweden.      While there  she took   the  opportunity of being  present at. one of the lectures deliv-  ed by   an   emissary of the  German  government.     These discourses are  a part  and  parcel 'of the energetic  pro-German   propaganda   that  has  been> launched   by    the    kaiser   in  Sweden, Norway and Denmark, ostensibly for the purpose of educating  public opinion  to  the German point  of view,   but  in .reality   they   are a  kind  of    veiled   terrorism   to   keep  those  countries on   the neutral list.  In the case of the lecture Miss Eric-  son heard, the speaker was evidently of the die-hard military class.   He  told his audience that if Ihe German  forces were  driven   out  of Belgium  and   France,   they' would   back  up  their   armies  across the  Rhine and  blow up and burn  every city rather  than leave them intact behind them,  which after  all  B/C/Mining  Address On Korea  NearSilvertoh, jn the Slocan, 40  men are working at the mine called,  the Galena Farm, and a rr/ill is now  being,built. In the boom days pf  1897 the property was floated in  London by a company, with a capital  high in the millions. The company  was afterwards disincorporated. At  that time Charles Callahan was the  engineer.  A rejuvenation of the Portland  Canal mining district seems imminent. The camp has lain dormant  for the past four years, but this  spring there have been several representatives of investors looking over  the claims, and some important developments which will result, in  transforming ore into real money are  now under consideration.-Province.

Crossing the North Sea, Miss Eric-  son said they were visited by a couple of zeppelins; ah incident.that almost scared some of the lady passengers to death.'. Sweden, she says,  was very much pro-German during  the first few months of the war, but  at the time of her departure for Canada, Swedish public sentiment, was  undergoing a remarkable change in  favor of the allied nations.

A number of people aie  -in there now; and a lot more are preparing to go in. .A number of New  Hazelton boys are interested in the  district, and there is a good deal of  confidence expressed in the country  becoming a noteworthy gold camp.  Omineca Herald.  D. J. Williams, superintendent at  the Rocher Deboule mine, was .a  visitor in town last week. .,- He went  up the line accompanied by   W.   S.  Miss McCully,  a  Canadian missionary in   the   Korean  field, was a  visitor  in   Phoenix,    over   Sunday,  and entertained a large and appreciative audience in the Presbyterian  church with an address on the work  now going  on   in whqt  used   to be  known  as the  "Hermit Kingdom."  The speaker told  her audience that  the whole of the scriptures were now  available   to  the   Koreans   in   their  own   language,  which  by  the way,  is the same as that of the Manchuri-  ans.    They were a kind, hospitable  people, entirely free from a military  spirit, and readily absorbed the message from   the  missionaries.     Few  of them  were   unable   to   read   and  write.    Their religion was   that of  Buddha  and  Confucius,  while  the  priests were about the lowest in morals and education  in the whole populace.       They- had   absolutely   no  power over the   people at all.    The  best  dressed,*  and  strange   to say,  highest educated among tfie women  were   the  dancing  girls,  and   as a  consequence'the rest of the women-  kind, except the upper  class, arrayed themselves in rags and tatters in  order that  they  may  not  be taken  for such'characters.     Some of them  did not know the names of their husbands, and   Miss   McCully  said she  had met quite a number of children  who were  facing  the world without  a name.    The great aim of the men  Want More Machine Guns  Alive at last to the gravity of the  task that confronts the Empire's  troops, the people of British*"Columbia are making a determined effort  to add to^the number of machine  guns carried by the 'regiments of  this province. The'military regulations ordinarily call for four of such  guns to each . battalion, but the  Canadian military authorities have  decided to increase that number to  twelve. Already the people of Vancouver have subscribed sufficient to  purchase fifty guns; and other cities  are following suit. New Westminster is making an effort to buy  twenty, Rossland thinks they will  be able to buy a couple, Greenwood  has already sent the money for one,  in fact from all.'accounts there does  not appear to be a single town or  city in the province but what is doing something in the matter.  Thevpromise has  been  given by  Ottawa, that all such guns provided  by popular   subscription, will  be  in  addition   to those   furnished by the  government.    It is also advised that  the money be sent to the militia department, who in turn will purchase  the  gun  or guns   and   forward the  weapons to   the regiment for whom  they are intended.     As showing the  value of such pieces, it is but necessary to record the statement of hundreds of our soldiers of their inability to  fire   their rifles fast enough to  I stem the   massed attack of the Ger-1  NEW BASEBALL  ORGANIZATION  J. J. Strutzel President���  To Secure Good Pitcher.  A meeting of local baseball enthusiasts took place recently for the  purpose of organizing a team to represent Phoenix in that particular  form of sport. Teams have been  arranged in all the small communities on both sides of the boundary  line, and the fans of this city are,  of course naturally anxious to be in  line with them. The great local  want, hjowever, revealed at the  meeting, was that of a pitcher, and  it was decided to strain every effort  to recruit one at the earliest possible  moment. The remainder of the team  will be picked from among the  already large number of artists���that  are here. The local diamond is in  splendid condition, but unfortunately the ground is not enclosed, and  this makes it difficult for the club  to make any revenue from admission  fees. To overcome the difficulty  the promotors propose to partly  meet the expense by the sale of  membership tickets, and partly by  voluntary collections on the ground  while the gameTIs in progress.

Successful Patriotic Social  Patriotism and Production  ornn  Phone 9 and 5  The flag day social   organized by  the  members of the Women's  Patriotic society, was  such  another of  the successes  that has marked the  career of that society.    The  rooms  were thrown open about 2 p.m., and  seldom were  the tables unoccupied  throughout   the  day  and  evening.  The    Indies   worked   industriously,  and although the result of their self-  denying   labor   will not  be   seen so  much in  Phoenix, its  effects will be  pleasurably experienced by our boys  in the French trenches and hospitals.  The   receipts   from   the   sale   of  flags, which   by the way were generously  donated by  Messrs.   Eddie  Murray   * and    Jas.     Leslie,    were  $31.10, and  the sum realized from  the sale  of ice cream, cake, strawberries, tea and coffee, added $81.25  to the  day's   total.    The  following  ladies were in charge oftlie arrangements:  Mrs.  C. M.  Campbell, Mrs.  A. F.   Gedcles,   Mrs.  J. A- Morrin,  Mrs. Frank   McDonald,  Mrs.   Fred  Weir,   Miss   N.   McGeer,   Mrs.   Ingram, Sen.,   Mrs.   Tilton  and Mrs.  jas. Bateman.  Geo. W. Rumberger, who returned this week from Regina, where he  has important business interests,  says that he never saw the north  west crops looking so well. Speaking of what he saw in Saskatchewan  and Alberta, he says the trip provided the surprise of his life. As far  as the eye could see, there was nothing but grain, grain and more  grain. Even the stretches of land  in the possession of speculators,  are all under cultivation, and the  owners of virgin land have been inundated with offers to lease their  property on shares. It is the same  story with the hay crop, particularly  in the irrigated areas of Alberta.  The yield is enormous. "The farmers over there have risen to the occasion,"says Mr. Rumberger, "and  Hon. Martin Burrell is to be congratulated on the splendid response  they have made to his appeal for  an increased acreage under crop. I  consider Mr. Burrell has done more  for the general advancement of agriculture than any three of his predecessors. He told the farmers it  was their patriotic duty to increase  their acreage, and from conversations I had with some of them, together with what I saw with my  own eyes, 1 think they have done  their duty to Canada very well."

"On November 3, 1914 (note the  date,) England declared the North  sea a'war area,"   says  the German/  What  a splendid   record!   What  a   magnificent    vindication   of   the  British   reformatory  school system.  We   are   told   that   19,649   former  bad boys, inmates of British truant  schools,   reformatories,    etc.,   have  answered the  call" of their country  and rallied   for   the   defence  of the  flag and all  that that ensign stands  for.    Twenty-five  of those naughty  boys are wearing  the Distinguished  Service Medal,   eight of them hold  the   King's  commission,   twenty of  them have been specially mentioned  in   dispatches,   and, three'of  them  have been decorated  with   the Victoria  Cross.    _Many   of them 'will  never look again on the white cliffs  of Old England1 and  the great majority  of even  those  are  asleep  in  nameless  graves ' amid   the  cruelly  scared orchards   and fair fields of a  foreign  country.

Von Jagow must possess a convenient faculty for forgetting facts,  and no doubt the United States  naval experts will have reminded the  President ere this of the destruction  on Aug. 5, of a fully-equipped German minelayer that the British  cruiser Amphion discovered spattering mines indiscriminately sixty  miles off Yarmouth, England. It  will also be recalled that during this  action the Amphion ran into two of  the mines and was sunk. So after  all, by the Germans own showing,  the British government were rather  slow in declaring the North Sea a  R war zone. It is also a significant  fact that Von Jagow terms that  stretch of water the North Sea, as in"  all German atlases it is described as  the German Ocean. -  Editors of newspapers in British  Columbia must be careful in future  when penning articles having reference to the sweet kulture of the  kaiser and the German nation.

On account of, the demand for  war nurses, there is a dearth of  nurses for general purposes in Lon-  .Lpndoh, England;  The spring and summer-halibut  fishing on the coast has proved a  dismal failure. The fishing grounds  are steadily being depleted!  The.dead bo'dy of a twelve-year-  old boy was found, last week a few  miles from Revelstoke. He had been  shot with a .22 rifle.  On the advice of the city attorney,  the Victoria council refuse to admit  any liability for .damages ;dbrie to  the breweries during the- recent  anti-German riots. "  Authority has been received to recruit the 72nd Seaforth Highlanders  (Vancouver) to full war strength.  The battalion will now proceed to  the front as a unit.  Two men, who were up before  the Vancouver magistrate for vagrancy, were allowed to go on condition that, they immediately joined  the army. ..'��..  General Sir John Maxwell 'has  prohibited the sale of alcoholic liquors to the soldiers in Egypt between the hours of-ten at night and  five o'clock in the m'0ning.  The acceptance 'of "moderate  drinkers" into the benefits of the  American Temperance Insurance  Association of New York, has put  the company on  the bankrupt shelf.  While smoking on his verandah  at Twin Arm, last Monday, the Rev.  H. P Dixon was shot in the face  by an unknown person. He is at  present a patient in one of the Vancouver hospitals.  The Russian authorities at Tientsin have cleverly intercepted and  confiscated a big consignment of  gold from Mongolia, destined for  the German bank. It was despatched under cover of a Chinese name.  The president of the Delaware  and Hudson Railway Company, who  has recently completed an investigation into foreign holdings of American securities, announces that the  amount held by foreigners is about  $2,576,401,342.  Another   of Britain's  airmen  has  gone.     This  time  it is Commander  Soames, who was killed recently by  a bomb   which   he   was examining.

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 mineraliferpus, 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." f -  FOREST A   D   Ml ERAL 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 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 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, 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^dvent of the investor.1 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. 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. P. R. and Great Northern companies, while within a few months the route, to the  Pacific coast will be commercially, curtailed by the opening of the new K. V.

It is officially, announced in Berlin that no honor has been conferred  on any submarine captain for the  destruction of the Lusitania. Capt.  Hersing, of the U21, who is stated  to be the officer of the plunger that  accounted for the liner, has been  awarded the Order, of Merit because  of his trip passed Gibraltar into the  Mediterranean.  The tune of "God Save the  King," was a favorite with several  of the great German composers.  Weber introduced it in one or two  of his works, and Beethoven, besides writing seven variations on it  for the piano, used it in his Battle  Symphony, apropos of which he  said in one of his letters, "I must  show the English what a blessing  they have in   "God Save the King."  Dr. Chaillon, head of the anti-  rabies department of the Pasteur  Institute, and one of the. mr >t brilliant young scientists in Fiance, has  met death under extraordinary circumstances. He had personally volunteered to disinfect a stretch of  ground lying between the French  and German lines, and while at work  among the putrifying bodies lie was  killed by a shell.  The incendiary bombs, used by  the German airmen are simply a  vessel containing thermite. The re-  cepticle was wound tightly with  tarred string. Thermite is a mix-  ture of iron oxides with finely granulated aluminum and is chiefly used  for welding iron rails. The heat  generated is intense, about 5000  ���degrees centigrade. When iighted  with a fuse of barium peroxide, it is  converted into a molten mass. The  fuse is ignited by percussion of the  phosphorus in the  base of the shell.  I. O.O. F.

So far as can be seen the  only reasons for the price reduction  are the successful manipulation of  the standard market in London to  an extraordinarily low level, the reduced volume of exports of raw  copper, the slight increase in the  foreign visible supply' and the shattered confidence of consumers, due  to these seemingly unfavorable developments.
