Ernest Miller.    Among  those present was Lome A. Camp*  1 bell of Rossland,  whose address on  the all important Doukhobor matter  was listened to-with intense interest.  Evidently  Mr.   Campbell is  not a  friend of the recalcitrant Douk.    He  voiced his disapproval of the recent  Doukhobor commisiion hy stating  that, the  report did   not set  forth  actual   conditions.    "When people  imagined that the Doukhobors were  not    business   people,"    said   the  speaker, "they were mistaken.   The  Doukhobors>s hf��d actually endeavor-  ed  to  close   the  approach, to   tbe  government  bridge at Trail by the  acquisition of land jn that vicinity."  Mr.    Campbell,   amid   cheers,   announced his determination of shortly  proceeding to  the  capital   and  threshing . the  matter out with  the  premier.  Important resolutions of vital interest to the constituency andcoun-  vtry in general were submitted and  unanimously carried at the meeting,  includingresolutions.of implicit confidence^ in both,the. Dominion arid  ��� Provincial 'administrations, as well  as one.' extolling .the , work  inu?r.      Mr.    Miller   reminded   the  association that it was the   Laurier  administration   that  hrought   them  into  the, country.      We could  not  throw them out.     In the cour.se of  his remarks   Mr.    Miller  eulogized  the   railway policy   of the McBride  administration   and   frankly . attributed his re-election  to that important governmental issue, meanwhile  thanking the electors for the confi-  dence reposed iu him by the people  ofthe  Grand   Forks  district.     He  assured them that the several mat-  ters to which his attention had been  called  would   be    laid   before   the  government.  The proceedings terminated with  a banquet-and concert.  Number 42  |   Mining Notes of British Columbia  of Mr.  Miller in the local house  The latter gentleman " aroused  considerable.enthusiasm' by his reference to the Doukhobor resolution,  and his statement that the government intended to allow'no exemptions in the.matter'of any infraction  of'the law.     He  had received that  Granby Notes        ��� ",  The following appears in a recent  statement of President Nichols  to  the   stockholders   of    the   Granby  Consolidated:  "The operations at the Phoenix  properties and Grand Forks smelter  for the month of March showed a  profit of $87,770 and for the wine  months of the fiscal year $990,225.  The yield of metals has been fully  maintained, and the cost of copper  for March slightly reduced but  current profits for a portion of this  period were interfered with by the"  decline-in the price of the metal. All  figures are now based on 14 1-2  cent copper and on March 31 we  had on hand 1935 tons taken in ai  that figure.  Reports from the development  work of the old properties indicate  that ore reserves" there have been  fully maintained.'  ���-F. H^ Sylvester, general * manager .of the" Gr'anby " .compaoy,' ';is  authority for the statement' that a  numbie r^of the'" Granby* S~ "d i reef orate  have arranged .for a visit to the  Hidden creek mine in August   next.  Several parties returned to Atlin  early in the month from the new  diggings in the Teslin Lake country  and all of them are more than ever  confident that the discovery is genuine and state most emphatically  that there is no doubt whatever that  it will prove up to all exceptions  and justify the publication of the  reports appearing from time to  time in the outside press.���Week.  Ross S. Craddock, consulting  mining engineer of New York city,  has made examination ofthe United  Empire coal and ore/ properties on  One-mile creek and returned to  Spokane on Monday. He is much  impressed with the mineral conditions of contact and depo'sit and  expects the properties to develop  into mines. Mr. Craddock has  been in many parts of the world as  mining expert. His wide experience  leads him to believe that there is a  bright mining future for the whole  district. This is his first visit to  Princeton and is much impressed  with" its beauty of location and  surrounding scenery.���Similkameen  Star.  A coast paper states that^ Lightning creek, Cariboo district, which  yielded millions of gold in the  sixties, is soon likely to be the  scene of extensive mining operations. W. M. Ogden, of Stanley,  B. C, owns a group of claims on  the creek which he bonded to Mackenzie Urquhart of this city a year  ago, and on which, it is understood,  an important strike was made a few  days ago. Mr. Odgen has arrived  in town for the purpose of conferring  witli Mr. _ Urquhart in regard to  carrying on hydraulic operations this  season.      The outlook for the pro-  Visit of School Inspector  G. L. Bruce, inspector of schools  for the, Provincial government,  recently completed a'very thorough  examination, of the pupils attending  the  local 'schools.     The inspector  expressed his~ satisfaction with the  genera! attainments of the children,  but took exception to the reading,  which  he  thought   was  somewhat  deficient.   - This latter failing, however,    he   regarded   as   somewhat  pardonable, for which neither staff  or  children** were  responsible,  Mr.  Bruce attributing the  cause to  the  crowding  of the  pupils   into  only  three classes.    As a remedy he recommends the  addition of another  teacher to 'the present staff, which  action   he   stated   would  do  away  with   the  premature   advancing of  the children, with its consequent  hardship on both pupils and teachers. The absence of a fire escape  was quickly noted by the visiting  official, and the imperative need for  one pointed out, as was also the  absence of a sanitary drinking  fountain for the prevention of the  spread of infectious disease. In  regard to the proposed playground,  Mr. Bruce made the suggestion  that instead of making one, there  should be two,"one of which would  be on a lower level. This suggestion is certainly worth considering,  as apart from the advantage derived from keeping the boys apart,  it also posseses the merit of being  much less expensive to construct  as it entirely obviates the necessity ^ate  of filling in a tfirge - portion of|Granby  ground to provide a level site."

This channel has been drifted  on! as well as tested at various  points by shafts sunk from the surface, and gold was found everywhere. Mr Odgen has been engaged in plater mining for the past  eighteen years. He is confident  that he has struck a big bonanza at  last.  Among the numerous visitors  in  Cranbrook last week attending  the  water commissioner's  hearing   '/as  George  Doherty,  of Fort   Steele,  better known as  Coronel  Doherty.  Mr. Doherty is one  of the few  still  left in the district who were on Wild  Horse in the  palmy  days,   having  first come to the gulch in '65,  leaving  later  for other camps' in   the  States,   wher,e  he  reaped  a   large  experience working with his brother  Neil on the Comstock, also  on  the  White Pine, Helen, Norcross and  other properties once notable, now-  only names'to the public ot' today.  Mr. Doherty has been continuously  in the country for twenty-one years  now and has of late years confined  his attention entirely to the Doherty  claim, developing and sampling it in  preparation for the revival of interest in East Kootenay mining, in  ���which he has kept a constant faith.  Recent .samples on examination the  colonel states to be full equal to  Homestake stuff, which property he  was sent from Frisco to examine in  .'77.

Narrow Escape of Motorists  Few   motoring parties can boast  of so narrow an  escape   as that experienced hy the occupants of Morrin,   Thompson    and    Co.'s   motor  car   on  Sunday    last.      The  party  were returning to Grand Forks after  a.trip to Danville, Washington, and  in attempting the passage of a portion   of a  newly-graded   road,   the  driver, R. J.  Gardner,   allowed the  machine to come nearer the edge of  the  road than  comfort  demanded,  and in  the attempt to remedy matters gave   the wheel   a  sharp turn,  with the result that the car shot to  the  opposite  side of the  road and  over the embankment, turning completely over,   but fortunately  pitching its four occupants clear of serious danger.    J.  E.  Thompson was  the first to recover and went to the  assistance    of  Mr.    Gardner,   who  wsa    found   tightly   grasping   the  steering  wheel   which  had become  detached.       F.   French   of   Hedley  was also stunnejj, but the injuries to  the other occupant,   F. Anderson of  Grand   Forks,   necessitated   the attendance  of a   doctor,   who  found  that   four   of   his   ribs   had   been  broken.    The damage to the car is  not regarded as.serious.

Mr. Burns  sold to various persons and syndicates a total of 2,000 acres within  the city limits of Calgary at an  average of $2,000 an acre, aggregating a total of $4,000,000. The  area formerly comprised a farm he  used for pasturing his stock. With  the growth of the city the farm was  included in the city limits. In recent years the land had been  a. sessed by the civic authorities at  at $3,000 an acre.  The record price obtained for his  holdings illustrates the remarkable  growth of western cities during the  past decade. ��� When Mr. Burns  bought the farm for pasturage purposes years ago he never dreamed  that its value would ever increase at  so fabulous a rate, or that it would  be used in his day otherwise than  a grazing spot for his herd of  cattle.

The  epidemic reached its height in .November, 1912, and on the eighteenth  of that month the Isolation hospital was established, and from that  time it waned until now it has  come to an end.  ��  The Assiniboine river is still rising and assuming gigantic proportions;. A two foot rajse during the  night swept away the power house  of the' old Cartwright flour mill  from its foundations. ���- Floating  down the river it lodged against the  highway bridge. The whole valley  is makirigMnto one large lake that  when filled,   is   likely   to  spend  its  arising from the market .being  cornered and thus causing a shortage in England despite abundant  crops, made it necessary to foster  the growth of cotton where it would  be under British control. Egyptian  cotton, he claimed, was better from  the point of view of the manufacturer'and the quality of the goods  obtained from that product, and  also from the point of view-of tbe  workmen, because it' was cleaner  and healthier, to work than was  American cotton. -The resolution  was adopted without division.  fury "on villages and towns south  and east.' A steady rise of one inch  per hour was recorded and there is  no signs of abatement.  Premier Borden - certainly deserves the thanks of a grateful people for putting an end to the senseless and deliberate obstruction indulged in by the Opposition over  the naval contribution. The business of Parliament will now be carried on and the blockers' little game  brought to an abrupt conclusion.

He held this country  up to ridicule on the continent of  Europe. He has made a political  football of a great national question  and duty, BAnd in so doing he has  been playing with the fire which is  now destroying him as a political  force in Canada.  The European nations saw in the  proposals ofthe Borden government  to increase the effective naval  forces of the Empire, the shattering  or their dream to oust Britannia for  her long and historic role of "ruling  the waves." With the young cubs  flocking to the side of the old lion,  they faced the situation of not  merely threatening the supremacy  of England on the seas but the  supremacy of a united Empire. And  since Laurier has brought politics  into the thing, the chancelleries of  Europe breathe freely again. They  see that the Canadian cub has grave  doubts of fighting along side -its  mother.  The Laurier who believes in the  ultimate independence of Canada  has succeeded in his nefarous design. He has made of Canada a  laughing stock.. He has> openly  allowed his followers ��� to preach  secession upon- the very floors of  Parliament.       He   has   cheered   re  Is the Prospector Disappearing  A   correspondent   of one   of our  esteemed contemporaries complains  tha,t  for  various   reasons the prospectors in his section of the   West,  east  of the  Rocky   Mountains,   is  becoming an almost extinct species.  The fact that his state has   been   so  throughly gone over and   that  but  little   interest    is   taken   in     "gold  quartz"    mining  are  the  principal  reasons given for this  phenomenon.  On   this  coast   the   contrary    is  rather the case; the opportunities of  Alaska,   British   Columbia,    Washington, (particuarlarly in  the Olympic    mountains),   and   Oregon   are  appreciated  as   never   before,   and  railway's and   other  ways   of  communication are being rapidly   developed with  the  idea of opening up  to exploitation the resources of  the  country, mineral as well  as   others,  and in some cases exclusively.     The  prospector is fully alive to  this   and  it is a dull week that the mail or the  cable does not bring us the news   of  a   find of some sort in this   region  that  is'well   authenticated   and   of  permanent value.     Whatever   may  be the  case  further   east,    on   the  Pacific slope   the   prospector is   decidedly in evidence and has a board-  ening field   opening  before  him.���  Pacific Mining Journal.   -        ��          >JJ  if  Wonderful Nervous Sy��torn  EARLY    INDISCRETIONS^ AND  EXCESSES  HAVE UNDERPIN ED.

Colonist,  tell us anything bearing upon the  following very remarkable account  of a region in the mid-Atlantic?  Mariners say that in the midst of  the Atlantic, about where the 25th  meridian west from Greenwich  crosses the equator, there lies a  region of mystery. It is on the  line that ships take from Madeira  to Brazil. Only within the past  half century has !;it been sounded,  and its strange phenomena reported.  One investigator declared that he  saw the sea about half a mile from  his vessel suddenly disturbed. For  about two minutes it boiled up  violently as from a subterranean  spring."  ������";���'���'  Throughout the day there were  observed great patches of discolored  water, which had exactly the appearance of extensive shoals. These  and similar phenomena are frequently observed in this part of the  ocean. OftenJ �� ship reports that  she has experienced a violent shock,  similar to that of a heavy chain  running through the hawser pipes,  and-'the vessel quivers like a leaf in  the wind.  At another time, in smooth water,  a vessel has been known to heel  over suddenly, as if she had run on  a sand bank. Before this part of  the ocean was as thoroughly sound  ed and surveyed, as it is now,  these phenomena were attributed to  gratitude at the miraculous escape  from assasination of the Governor-  General of India, has reduced his  scale of prices 25 per cent. A somewhat similar method of returning  thanks was .actually considered by  the management of the Pioneer on  the defeat-of the reciprocity pact,  but the extraordinary low prices  prevailing in this office ��� made the  suggestion impossible to put into  effect. The boot is on the other  foot in Phoenix and any thanksgiving as far as this camp is concerned should be on the grounds  that it possesses such a live weekly  paper and up-to-date job printing  plant within its bpundaries.  d l.
