Pope, a well known  business, man of the camp, being  one 0/ the eleven children mentioned, and himself a resident of  Pretoria for some years:  "Mr. and Mrs. E. Pope, well-  known 'residents; here, celebrated  their golden wedding yesterday, at  their son-in-law's residence, 223,  Boon* street, .in the presence of  many of their children and grandchildren. The remarkable facts are  that of the eleven children and 23  grand children, all are still Hvtnjg  and enjoying good health." '  ' There are over 750 men working  in the Rossland camp.  The Pueble, near White Horse, is  shipping 150 tons a day.  The Standard mill at Silverton is  the most successful ever installed in  the Slocah district.  !.v Hewitt mine, back of Silverton,  will soon again be in operation. Two  long crosscut tunnels will be driven,  which will give a vertical depth of  1700 feet. The flume will be rebuilt  and the mill remodelled.

There are  yet  another fifty  feet to   be   broken before getting across the full width.  A find of considerable importance,  says the Rossland Miner, has been  made by Supt. Coulter on the  Hattie claim of the Richmond Consolidated. The discovery was made  at a point 200 feet ftom the find  uncovered three weeks' ago. The  new find is 15 feet in width.

Mr.   Taylor   reports  that j  they have   a large   quantity  of the  ore which is free milling, the several  tests made from various  places run  about $20 to the ton.  A discovery of ore which promises  to be of more than usual importance  has been made in the Josie mine of  the Le Roi Mining company  at   the  west end of the  500-foot   level, and  the indications are that the output of  the  mine   will   receive   a   stimulus,  not   experienced    for   years.

McKay & Sons  ��� ^jf Proprietors  ' The Naval Crisis  The attitude of the people of  the United Kingdom towards nil  Imperial defence scheme is summarized in the following editorial  from a leading Loudon journal:  The   speech    of .-.the'-.Dominion  Minister    of   Finance,'  announcing  that   the people   and ��� Parliament of  Canada are prepared to do their full  share in  the matter qf Imperial defence, is the direct, and inspiring re-  spbnsc   of  the   "eldest son   of- llie  Iimpire"  to.  Mr.  'ChurchiU's  recent  appeal.      Mr. Churchill  has pom led  pi.it   that   the   policy  of  naval   concentration .which   developments   in  Europe have-forced upon us has impaired the   mobility   of our fleet and  weakened   its   power  of   action, iii  distant  waters.      In   these circumstances  he has turned  boldly to the  "strong -*young.    nations" ��� of   the  dominions,    and    has: called    upon  them to  do  their  part.     While the  Mother Country guards.the decisive  centre, will, they "keep the flag fly-  ingon the oceans of the world" and  patrol the: distant seas? , ;  How grave is the  emergency the  debate in the Reichstag on German  foreign policy has shown. Germany,  we   must   now   take   it   for certain,  means to   increase  her   navy  to the  utmost point  of which   her  finances  will permit.     To enable  us to meet  the   vast  force   which   is  now   concentrating in the North sea, we have  been    compelled   to   withdraw    out-  flag  from   distant  waters.      But   we  do not stand 'alone  and his predecessor's appeals  to the  Dominions    have    not   fallen    upon  deaf cars.     Australia  is  building   a  dreadiiaught and providing  an Australian squadron   to police the Pacific.   'New   Zealand   is   contributing  a  dreadiiaught   for   the   same   pur  pose.     Now, as Mr. White's speech  and    a     remarkable   article   in    the  Montreal Star have shown, Canada  is coming into line with them.     The  action  of the   Dominions,   provided  it is   taken   in  time,   can   and   will  turn the scale.     They have immense  resources.       Canada,   for   example,  is dowered   by nature with a wealth  Is an Election Probable?  A   Dominion election,   some time  next year, now seems  more than a  hazy probability.    The forthcoming  visit to London of the Federal cabinet ministers  is fraught with great  ���irnporta-iice to the people of Canada,  and no   secret   appears  to be made  of the  object of that visit.     Wc are  all aware   of it.    They   are   to   lay  before   the 'Imperial, authorities,   a  new, and let us hope, a  more satisfactory   and   generous   ischeme    of  naval co-operation  with  the British  Admiraity than  the weakly  child of  misfortune bequeathed to us by the  late Laurier administration.     In the  event of an agreement being arrived  at that   in any   material way  alters  the present order of. things, the fact  seems  certain that an appeal to the  country on  the  question  will  most  certainly have   to  be   taken,  unless  the unexpected takes place, and the  loyal Opposition fall in line with the  Government proposals.      The'latter,  possibility   is, . however,   a   remote  one,   in view, of  the   frequent back  door  visits   of  Sir  Wilfred   to   the  Senate.     There  can be   little doubtv  though, of  the   result   of such    an  appeal.      Since   the    return   of   the  present   government,   an   educative  wave   lias swept   the   country from  the Maritime Provinces to the Paci-  .fic,   compelling   the  humblest of lis  to    admit   that    Canada's    present  share in   Empire   defence is   not at  .-ill   commensurate   With   her   proud  position among the daughter nations  of over- burdened   and    sorely-tried  Albion.

Within ten days, says the Sun,  the long No. 2 tunnel at the Yankee Girl, at Y'mir, is expected to  reach the oreshoot, and the properly  will then start shipments immediately. The No. 2 tunnel is being  driven to open up the ore shoot  from which in the No. 7 workings  $160,000 worth of ore was shipped.  The "ore gave average smelter returns of $21.25 per ton, and the  operators of the property believe  that the values will .l;o to depth,  and that the ore shoot will be considerably wider in the No. 2 level  than in No. 1. The No. 2 tunnel  is from I GOO to IS00 feet in length  and a number three of the same  length is also been driven and will  probably be completed soon after  ore is struck in the second.

MATHESON,. Agent.  Warning to Phoenix Investors  Phoenix has always been a happy  hunting- ground for the vendors of  Alberta real estate, and the recollection of some deals negotiated in  Phoenix have not the pleasantest of  memories to some of us. In fact  we have residents living amongst  us now, who, although they have  completed all payments, are still  waiting patiently for their title deeds  to Calgary town lots.  As a precaution in future, it will'be  a wise thing for the prospective  purchaser of town lots in Alberta,  and especially in Calgary, to inquire  a little more thoroughly into the  authenticity of the agent's credentials. There are some in the Boundary, at present who can do with  watching".  Additional Locals  .Airs. Jus.

Potter, who ��� recently 'left for  Laiigley, near Westminster, to inspect  a live-acre land purchase he negotiated  with Win. Pickard, writes that he is  more than satisfied with the transaction.

But the trappers and prospectors,  whose business is in the mountains,'  know that Hope, Ogilvy and the  Eureka mountains are still the home  of bears, goats and deer in abundance. Further south, In the Skagit river valley, the deer have  suffered seriously from the depredations of .Indians from the Nicola  valley, but it is hoped, by the appointment of a sufficient number of  game wardens, to check their activities and preserve the game.  Black and grizzly bears are still  very numerous. They are met on  the trails. During the rush to  Steamboat mountain a year ago,  there were few of the gold seekers  wlio did not report seeing bear  tracks and many caught sight of  the animals themselves. The vicinity of the Lake Honse, near the 14-  mile post, which is at the summit of  the divide between Coquahalla and  the Skagit, the highest point ou the  first half of the Similkameen trail,  bears have always been numerous  and are still.  Hope mountain, which rises over  5000 feet above the river, the ascent  beginning almost at the southern  limits of the town, is still the haunt  of the mountain goat, although  these animals are reported as rarely seen now in other inhabited parts  of the province.  Ogilvy mountain, east of the  Coquahalla and across the Kaw-  kawa lakes, is far less frequently  visited than Hope mountains, and  its northeastern slopes are almost  unknown, Deer, bear and goats  have all been hunted there successfully.  To the west rise Holy Cross  mountain and the Eureka peaks.  They are higher than Hope or  Ogilvy and afford shelter for goats  with almost absolute security.
