 >V��SL   ... _  HI  t-'il  '���t ��� .1  The largest copper mines in  the Dominion are situated  at Phoenix. The Granby  Co. employs 500 in en, and  has a monthly pay roll of  over $50,000, wbilo tho Rawhide pay roll is $18,000.  FOURTEENTH YEAR  B.C. Mining  W. A. Cameron, superintendent  of the Richmond-Eureka, Sandon,  has taken charge of development  on the Lucky Thought group, Four-  mile, and the Ottawa, near Slocan;  the' properties recently bonded by  the Consolidated-Mining and Smelt-  ing company ot Canada.���Slocan  -Record.  James Wright, general   manager  ofthe G. T. B. C.   Coal Co.,   with  coal lands at Twenty   Mile,   was   in  town a couple ol" days this week   on  his   way   back   to Vancouver.     He  has   been   at   the   coal   property   a  couple of  weeks  getting  the   200-  foot  tunnel   started.      He   brought  some more samples into  town   with  him   and   he   is   also   taking   some  big  pieces   to   Prince    Rupert   and  Vancouver.    The new samples   are  much better than the first, and   Mr.  Wright states   that  within   another  couple of weeks the miners  will   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 Vancouver,   a  year ago, and on which, it is understood an important strike was made  a few days ago.      The   outlook   for  the production of a  large .quantity  of placer gold is  regarded   as   very  encouraging.        Exploratory  work  carried   on   continuously   since  last  June has led to the discovery  of  an  ancient  channel  covered   over    by  erosion of the mountains during the  course of ages.    This   channel   has  been drifted   on   as   well   as   tested  at  various .points   by    shafts   sunk  from   the   surface,   and   gold    was  found   everywhere.���Lillooet   Prospector.

Lambert, the veteran placer  miner, has again replaced the dam  on Granite creek near the north  fork which was washed away by  high water last year. He has made  the present dam secure as possible  having anchored it in the solid rock  on either side. The dimensions are:  80 feet'long, 10 feet deep, 12 t-2  feet wide, and an apron of 30 feet.  Much interest is takenln Mr. Lambert's work, %which if proven successful will give an immense impetus  to placer mining- throughout the  district. Gold and platinum are  known to be in the creeks and  rivers and it is hoped Mr. Lambert  may. ! demonstrate'* -the ���-successful  mining of these placers.

Fort  Resolution   is   800  miles north  of Edmonton   arid   well  within the Arctic circle.     Reports of  enormous deposits of  silver-lead   in  the   vicinity 'of  Fort Resolution,   a  post for the   Hudson  Bay company  and other fur traders,   have   drifted  into  Edmonton    at    various    times  during the last few years,  but  -until  this    time   the   new   field   did    not  attract the attention of experienced  operators.

The member for this district is by  no means a jingo und he is never  mbre at ease than when dealing  with facts as he was on this occasion  when he enlightened the opposition  on a few matters they had possibly  overlooked in the fierce heat of the  recent debate.  "This BilJ," said Mr. Bnrretl,  "had been introduced in the House  five months ago, and that now in  ihe course of a few hours the House  would have to give their final vote.  There rested upon them a deep and  grave responsibility.. It was a regrettable fact that- a; matter affecting the defence of the .empire and  world relationship would be made a  subject of party politics. Members  of the House would not be able to  agree as to who was-responsible for  this. It was a fact, however, that  no equally great measure had ever  been laid before Parliament in a  more moderate and non-partizan  manner than that- which marked  Premier Borden's speech in introducing'the Bill."  in the British Isles. We, in Canada,  have been carrying on our plans of  development knowing that there  has been between us and danger, at  all times, the power of the Empire.  The government and its supporters,  Mr. Burrell said, he believed that  there is evidence that the safety of  the Empire can best be assured by  strengthening tlie home fleet.  Lord Roberts had said that Britain  had nothing in the way of defence  behind the first line.  This proposal will afford strength  behind that line. The bill is what  it purports to be���free assistance  from a free people, with no danger  to autonomy and binding Canada in  no way to a system of permanent  contribution. It leaves us free to  work out a permanent policy. Mr.  Burrell deprecated statements to  the effect that the statesmen in  Great Britain are not actuated by a  desire to work out the problem of  defence without'intefering with the  Overseas Dominion.

This  second pipe  line  has  a diameter  of six   inches   and  not  only   does  it   wash away   the  dirt, but small   boulders up  to five  inches    go   merriily   rolling   along  the   sluices.     Already  a creditable  space   has    been   excavated,    and  although    at  first    the   work   was  necessarily   slow,     a    much   more  satisfactory   rate   of    progress   will  hereafter  be  maintained,  while the  use ofthe   water  has   the   merit of  being exceedingly inexpensive.   The  proposed working "bee" on Sunday  last did not.materialize,  the unfavorable   weather  keeping the crowd  away,   but  another   call   has   been  sent   out   for Sunday  next at nine  oclock,and   all having  the interest  of a   local   '"nine" at heart  are requested   to  be   on   hand.

J-  Police Court Case  Matozek,   a    Great Northern  Fatal Mining Accident  About midnight on   Wednesday,  an   Austrian   American,   named J.  Tahija,   a   miner in   the employ  of  the  Granby company,   was instantly killed by the premature explosion  of a charge of dynamite.      Pending  the  inquest, which   took place after  this paper had gone  to press, nothing of an authoritative nature could  be learned   as  to   the  cause ofthe  accident.    The deceased was a new  arrival in   the  camp and   was considered an exceptionally good miner.  From a reliable source  we learn  that Tahija was engaged  in a raise  at the Gold Drop, and was working  a "plugger," one  of the smallest of  machine drills.     He  was visited by  the   shiftboss,  who   on   account of  the presence of a   missed   hole, told  him   to  stop  drilling   and  lake his  dull steel away.    Less   than  a minute after the shifter left him the explosion   took place,   and, evidently  fearing that something was wrong,  he called  to the  deceased,   but receiving no  answer,   he returned to   '  the  spot  and    found  Tahija   lying  dead.     The deceased was about 24  years  of age and   was born  in one  of the mining districts  of Michigan.  The   funeral   takes place  today   at  two o'clock  from   the  undertaking  parlors and the service will be held  in the opera house.

Copper company, Cor the win  This report showed the largest total "er of the company's football cham  deliveries in any month on record |pionship, was pulled off last week,  and a reduction in the visible supply  in    this    country    of  over    28,720  pounds.  This remarkable showing is not the  result of simply shifting the supplies  from the hands of the refiners to the  shelves of the consumers. Foreign  consumers are known to be sailing  just as close to the wind in their  slocks of the metal as possible, and  American interests are still following  their hand-to-mouth policy which is  encouraged by the contract method  of doing business in this country.  This being the case there seems good  grounds' for the unanimous belief  on the part of copper producers that  high prices will result for the red  metal.  The present volume of business in  copper is good and the electric traction schemes underway point to a  continued large consumption by  such developments.  Reports from Berlin this week tell  of ambitious plans underfoot forthe  changing over of the underground  traction system there from steam to  electricity, and the South Western  Railway in England is also planning  along this line for its suburban  roads. If these undertakings prove  successful other important roads  throughout continental Europe are  bound to follow suit with a result  that this branch of foreign consumption will be an important market  factor.  Conditions in fact in tlie copper  trade continue very encouraging,  with regard to prospective increase  in activity for both domestic and  foreign account.

Another Prospective Industry-  Victoria, May 23.���With  a  view  to determine the possible  economic  methods   of   producing    profitable  such by-products of the  Douglas fir  and   other   indegenous    woods    of  British Columbia as creosote, turpentine,     pyroligneous,      acid,      etc.,  samples of such woods have recently been sent  for  treatment   by  the  Forest Branch to distillation  plants  at    both   Wilmington,     Delaware,  and Lake Butler, Florida.    Reports  thereon have not yet come  to hand.  But    if a   process  can   be secured  which will permit of  the   treatment  of the woods with needful eeonomy,  so that a fair margin will remain to  the   manufactures  out    of    current  market prices for these   by-products  there appears to be an inexhaustible  and enticing field for. investment   in  this   phase   of    utilization    of    the  forest asset.

Telegrams to federal officials at  Prince Rupert from the Nulato  trading post, a native village on the  Lower Yukon river, says a mysterious epidemic has the post in its  grip.

TIlOS.  BrOWn       Men's Wear Exclusiyeiy  Causes of British Emigration  Of late an attempt is being made  to account for the remarkable exodus of people Irom Great Britain.  Some disgruntled writers, with political axes to grind, naturally place  the blame upon the shoulders of the  present Liberal government, and  flatly affirm that the exodus is due  to the Lloyd-Georgian system of  taxation, but that argument falls  very short ofthe truth when the  fact is called to mind that a great  majbriry of the pleople who have  emigrated never possessed a sum of  money exceeding three hundred  dollars and consequently never came  within the scope of the new taxation. But perhaps a' more accurate  reason for the movement to Australia and Canada will be found in  the steady influx into the large  cities and industrial centres of Eng-"  land of a large foreign element from  the Continent. In this connection  it may be news to some to learn  that in many of the colliery districts  in Scotland almost the whole of the  native Scot element have been  ousted by the advent of thousands  of Poles. To such an extent has  affairs in this particular instance been  going on, that the medical men and  lawyers   have  doubt  exists,   is  the  possession of  game at the expiration of the hunt-  ing  season.      Hitherto it was   permissible for a person to have game  in his or her possession for a  period  of ten days after the hunting season  has   closed.       But    this    privilege  has   been   rescinded, "and    anyone  found with game in their possession  during the close season is liable to  heavy fine or imprisonment.      If, as  is   often   the  case,   a  hunter  only  secures  his game  during  the  last  day or two of the season and consequently will likely have it on his  hands for  a few  days in the close  season, he may get over the difficulty by applying to a game warden  for a special permit.  What is probably the first case in  the province under the recent  amendment to the Game Act, came  up on Tuesday afternoon (May 13),  before Magistrate Plewman, when  Thomas Charles, alias Tarowski,  pleaded guilty to carryiug a rifle  without a license. The informant,  Alexander Cox, J.P., of Paterson,  stated that he had warned the defendant, who said he understood  he must have the license to kill  game. The magistrate ordered confiscation of the rifle and adjourned  the case until Thursday to allow  the defendant to. bring it in from  Paterson. On Thursday, this having been done, the magistrate allowed him to go on payment of the  costs, $3.00, but stated that in any  future cases of a similar nature a  fine would be imposed as well as  confiscation.���Rossland Miner.

Then there is  the case of the employees of the big  chemical works, thousands of whom  own allegiance to a foreign flag and  are liable to be called to their respective colors at any time. Under  these circumstances is it any wonder that John and Sandy, Taffy and  Pat are packing up and leaving the  land that their forefathers have paid  such a fearful price for.

The sore  would heal to- a certain point and thi-n  fester again, and so on. I procured a  box. of Zam-Buk, and after persevering  with this herbal balm for some time the  sore was completely healed.  "We were so grateful for this cure,  and Zam-Buk acted so differently to any  other of the numerous remedies we had  tried that I thought you ought to know  of this case. I have since recommended  Zam-Buk to several of my parishioners  and it always gives satisfaction."  Another instance in which Zam-Buk  proved of unequalled value is told by  Mr. N. L. Gerry, of Brandon, Man. He  says: "I had my left foot run over by  a wagon loaded with wheat. The foot  was very badly crushed, and my little  toe and the next toe were laid open. I  applied Zam-Buk and only had to miss  work for two days. Zam-Buk healed  the wound so quickly that on the third  day I was able to put on my boot and  walk to my work. In a very short time  my toes were quite healed, and the foot  is now as sound as ever, thanks to Zam-  Buk."

According to a recent ruling  the word gun in the Act does not  necessarily refer to a rifle, the  amendment being aimed solely at  the magazine shot gun, the use of  which has played havoc with the  game birds of the province.
