The affair was  entirely "by invitation," and needless to say the 160 or so cards were  promptly acknowledged  by the re-  Greenwood to decide  on similar ac! cipients,    who    were   unstinted   in  hoc.

The shaft  is down about 183 feet, and the other  work   done   comprises   200   feet   of  drifts.    The ore is a quartz, carrying gold, but  up  to  the present we  are unable   to state the values contained  in   it.     The property,   which  , is equipped with a  steam plant and  mill, was  worked   some years  ago,  over a thousand tons of ore freighted  to the   railroad   at   Midway, a  dis-'  tance of 50 miles.     The expert  examination   of   the   new   option,   although   necessarily   limited   on    account   of'the   water   is reported  to  have   been   very   satisfactory.

The difficulties attending the formation of a club  in  the Boundary are  by no means  easy, and all the more  credit is due to Grand Forks for the  effort she is making, an effort which  we in Phoenix sincerely hope will be  crowned   with    the   success    it   so  greatly deserves.   The Grand Forks  delegates to  the  Boundary League  convention, which is to assemble in  Phoenix in the near future, have received instructions   to   insist  on the  rule "not to recognize any postponement of games   in order that teams  may attend   the matches in connection with the Rossland Carnival."  ment  nine o'clock, and after a few pre  liminary numbers, the assemblage  formed up for the grand march,  Mr. and Mrs. Jas. Marshall being  the leading couple. At twelve  o'clock the dances were the guests  of the lodge at supper, which was  tastefully   catered    for   by    Danny  Fine Sample of Slocan Ore  Alderman Jas. Marshall and Thos.  Brown are at present wearing  smiles that would be difficult to  efface with sandpaper. The reason,  however, is quite obvious, as they  are showing around a splendid  specimen of silver-lead ore, containing a little antimony and some  sphlerite, commonly known as  blackjack, recently taken from the  the ledge of their Dirnedin mine,  m Sandon.    As  The dancing commenced atj showing   the progress  made  in the  r opening up  of the ledge, we might  mention that only a short time'ago  a sample reached town which gave  a return of 315 ounces in silver,  while this latest specimen is calculated to assay about 600 ounces in  silver.

The  service preceeding the interment  was held in the Masonic hall, a  large number of friends of the family  being present. The deceased, who  was unmarried, and 51 years of age,  was formerly a resident of Nelson,  and for a long time had been  in failing health.

So thirsty did Belway become, that  he stopped and put his face to the  stream to drink, and before his i  astonished eyes was a piece of gold j  bearing quartz. They halted there  and prospected the vicinity for the  place from where the sample came,  with the result that they struck it  rich, but probably it would never  have happened had they not had the  liking for boneless herring.���Kx.

Mining ���  The awakened interest in mining  throughout the province is in no  small measure due to the action of  the British Columbia press in making public not only the doings of  the long established mines, but in  co-operating with the Minister of  Mines in advertising to the world  the vast potentialities of this part  of Canada  as  a  profitable field   for  B. C" versus Washington  The report of the minister of  British Columbia, which is really  the report of the provincial mineralogist, W. Fleet Robinson, is out  for 1911 and shows a falling off in  total production of about three  millions from the preceding year.  This was mainly 'due to a shutdown of the coal mines in East  Kootenay for eight months by lahor  disputes; there was also less copper,  gold   and   silver  output  occasioned  mining  enterprise.

So  important are the mining events of  the province regarded, by the big  dailies that in some cases special  writers are employed for the gathering of mining news, but as in times  past not enough attention was paid  to the industry, so at present there,  is a tendency creeping in which distorts the true facts and seems to  aim somewhat towards the sensational, two factors, more than all  others   which   must   be    eliminated  closings. The report takes up the  districts and mines individually and  is enriched with notes and discussions by the provincial mineralogist  that greatly add to the dry bones  of statistics and progress reports.  There is also an account of the pro-  gtess of mining under the various  sub-divisons of the industry from  the same competent pen, that give  at a glance the state of each division  of the industry and shows what advances have been made.> British  Columbia is the mineral province,  and is fortunate to have such comprehensive" and well handled 'mineral statistics and reports.

Back Again Under the Old Flag  Some hundreds  of Boer families,  who found   it  extremely  distasteful  to   acknowledge   allegiance  to   the  the   British   government   after   the  annexation  of the  Transvaal to the  Empire, and  who, rather than submit   to   the   inevitable,   moved   into  German East Africa, are  now again  back under the British flag.      With  true, Boer-like simplicity, or rather  impudence,   they aimed  to establish  another republic on   German   territory.    The gilt-bedecked officials of  Ku rope's warlord, however, thought  differently,   and   evidently   made   it  so warm   for the  doppers   that they  have shaken the  dust   of that country off their  feet and  taken up their  abode once  more   under  the flag of  perfidious   Albion,   just    across  the  bonier to   the northward, where tlie  vast    plains   offer   them    a   golden  opportunity to  indulge in   the patriarchal  occupation of sheep and cattle   raising free  from the  rigid militarism  common   in  Germany's   colonial possessions.     They have their  troubles though, as  they  have been  preceded   in   Uie   settlement  of the  country    by     some    thousands   of  British-born and British Africanders,  the latter of whom  claim  they have  left   the   Transvaal,   Orange   River  Colony   and   the   Cape  because the  British have  handed  those portions  over to the Boer element.   Although  distrusting  one  another, both  Boer  and   British    settler   are   agreed   in  their policy  of treating  the natives;  he must be kept under; he must be  d. l.
