The  old pioneer had been in failing- health  , for the  past   two years  and was a  general   favorite  in* the   camp   in  which   he  had   made his  homcal-  , most trom'the day of its inception^  The funeral service was held in St7  John's church on Tuesday, the rector, the-Rev. L. B. Lee, officiating.  The solemn little procession, led by  rector,   entered   the  church   to  the  strains of Chopin's sublime  funeral  march, and  all  those present joined  heartily in the singing of the hymn,  "Nearer  My, God to Thee."    The  close of the service.was marked by  the playing of the  Dead March, by  Chas.    King,    the   little    company  standing respectfully until  the last  note"-had "tiTe'd   away'into  the stillness. > ���The^cortegqjhen formed up  and proceeded "to  the"  cemetery for  the final ceremony.  -The late Mr. Fletcher was among  the iw^pi^few^whfein   the   eaVly  home in Montreal. Among the  many properties on which he work-  ,ed was the claim of "Canboo Cam-  eron," for whom he formed one of  the guards in transporting the  "golden treasure to the outside world.  It took about eight mules to carry  the gold away, and the escort were  well paid for their services which  were considered very risky in those  wild and woolly days.

One   of them has already had   a  recurrence  of the old  pipe dream that started hundreds of  them on a pilgrimage  to Portage la  Prairie a few years ago, where they  expected to meet the Messiah.  This  time the rendezvous was changed' to  Grand   Forks   and   a  few of them  visited that place on a sort of scouting expedition.     They were all fairly well dressed,   but our informant  was  unable   to  state  whether  the  fact of them wearing  clothes  was  due to the late arrival of the-warm  weather or to   the  influence  of our  up-to-date western civilization. Anyhow the fig leave costume was not  in evidence.    The caravan was accompanied by a couple of wagons,  drawn   by  members   of the   Douk  fair sex, 'but. as many of the'latter  are built on the lines  of a year-old  elephant the stunt  occasioned little  surprise  among  the ���Grand   Forks  residents,   besides    we   can't   take  horses up  to  heaven  so there was  no't.mpch use for tlie, ^spirit^wrestlers" 5 using' horses; 'r for'-'the^trip.'

Mrs. Bresneham  is intdrested in this section and will  direct  mining operations. Mr.  Kelly has been located on Kelly  creek for eighteen years and has  done a lot of placering.���Similkameen Star.  George and Roy Clothier returned  to Stewart on Tuesday from the  Indian Mines, Salmon river. They  report four- feet of ore in the face of  the lower tunnel, while in the upper  tunnel the drift is being pushed on  to undercut the splendid showing  on the surface, 150 feet vertically  above the tunnel.���Portland Canal  Miner.  G.   Grossman,  an   engineer who  examined the northern   or  Klappan  portion of the Groundhog coalfield  for   Vancouver  capitalists,    reports  that five seams aggregating 35 feet  of clean   anthracite  of high  grade  and covering an area of 80   square'  miles  are contained in that section.  The southern portion of the Groundhog is not considered to be as good  as the Klappan portion.  The Monarch Mine, operated by  the Mt. Stephen Mining Syndicate,  of Vancouver, is forging steadily  ahead. The compressor plant has  been doubled by the addition of a  new compressor capable of delivering 600 feet of free air. The new  machine is the first of its make imported into British Columbia as far  a"s" we^' are aware,, having beenT  manufactured by the Burnham company of Battle Creek, Mich.

' The  zinc concentrates are shipped to the  ,works of Beer, Sondhheimcr & Co.,  at Bartlesville, Okla., through their  agent for British Columbia, J. L.  Retallack, of Kaslo.  J.     W.    Stewart    informed    the  Omenica  Herald   after   his   return  from the Silver Standard that prac-'  cically ail work will now be done on  the long cross cut   tunnel   which   is  being driven from   the big  shaft on  No/1   vein to tap the  No. 3  vein.  The  tunnel  is  already    in  several  hundred feet and  in  about another  month it should   brake through the  vein at a depth of about  four hundred feet.     If the ore at   that  point  is as good as the surface showings  it will   be a great property and the  future policy of the company will be  settled.        The   work in the tunnel  at the 250 foot level has opened   up  a very promising  shoot.        From  present   indications   one   would   be  lead to believe that they are on   top  of a big ore shoot.     As soon as the  long tunnel is completed   it  is  tha  intention to sink a winze on the new  ore in the short tunnel.  When asked  'about the  shipment  of   ore  which  has been lying at the  G.T.P   yards  here for so many mon  art  stated   that it   won  moved ^until   the   railway   company  jgave them a  much  better   freight  rate.      He intimated, however, that  there was reason to believe that-the  freight  question   would   be   settled  Midway. Celebration   7;\  Midway has ^'reason  to- be proud  of  her    Empire   day   celebration,  which wouid have'done credit to a  much larger and  important town,  while, the  many  Boundary 'people  who enjoyed  the hospitality of the  little spot are loud in their "praise of  all the arrangements that were made  for their enjoyment.      Phoenix was  represented by seventy  or  eighty,  which  could   easily  have  been, increased to 200  if the projected excursion    had   been     more   widely  known.     The   largest  number   of  holiday  makers were picked up at  Greenwood, where the platform was  found to be packed with waiting excursionists.  The scene at Midway was typical  of the western frontier,  with all the  horseplay   and   obnoxious  element  eliminated.       There., were   Indians  and   breeds     of   all   descriptions,  squaws and papooses, miners, prospectors, ranchers from  all  over the  district, with every  conceivable and  inconceivable  kind   of   conveyance  from   the   home-made   contraption  with   the  binder's   wheels   to   the  handsome    and    up-to-date   forty-  horse power motor car.

The ore contains no copper and the  intention  is to   work   the property  solely 'on- account  of the flux  for'  which   the   product  is  particularly  adapted.    The new property is situated   about three   miles  from   the  Great Northern railway and approximately 25 miles.from the company's  smelter at Grand Forks.  Death of J.

Last week he'had a couple of  cases for hearing before the local  stipendiary. The first one was a  charge of common assault laid by J.  Secoike, a member of the local  C.P.R. section gang, against another employee ot the company,  carrying around with him the 'Arabian-nights name of Kalibaba.  From the evidence it appears that  the parties were at work on the  track and Mr. Sicoike attempted to  force the pace. This was resented  by Mr. Kalibaba, who to show his  displeasure picked up the steel lining  rod and smote the "straw push" a  mighty blow on the back. The  court found the offence proved and  imposed a fine of $10 and costs.  In the next case there was a  slight change in the caste, Mr. Kalibaba being the defendant and  Secoike the accuser. The latter's  physiognomy had the appearance of  having been recently sandpapered,  but from the evidence it was learned  that this effect had been produced  by Secoike laying violent hands on  his partner and massaging his face  in a pile of ashes. The court then  turned the tables and meted out  justice in the shape  of another   10       === jChesaw,   Phoenix,   Greenwood,   thei,s  ,      .     ��  shifts.

The. missionary's statements are  now being backed by other Pacific  travellers, all of whom are testifying to the Ovvonderful hold that  ihe Japanese have obtained on all  the south Pacific islands. Columns  are being devoted to the subject by  the newspapers.  It has been known for some time  that the Japanese influx is not confined to the Hebrides, but extends  to all the islands in the vicinity com  prising Melanesia. New Caledonia,  the largest island of all, and next  in size in the Pacific to New Zealand, is being flooded with Japanese,  many of whom are imported to  work in the famous nickel mines.  A newspaperman recently went to  New Caledonia to inquire into the  Japanese question, and was met  with ��� rebuff   on  every   side. All  sources of information were closed  to him, but he saw enough to convince him that the immigration of  Japanese has already assumed the  proportions of a serious menace,  especially when it is known that  Japan has her eye on Australia, and  makes no secret of the fact.  New Caledonia belongs to France,  and lies about 900 miles from the  nearest point of the Australian  coast.  1^  Tests show Dr. Pfle^f  ;ing Powder to fee aoaf  efficient in stagife, dlbtgtat  parity and Uealflifolacm  D?

Lord Kitchener is  relied upon to suppress the unrest  on the Nile, but there is grave fear  that the Indian conspiracy and the  South African quarrel have been  allowed to drift so far that desperate  measures will have to be used before  long.  "At Bombay, Delhi, and Calcutta Hindus and Mohammedans  are openly arrayed shoulder to  shoulder, pledged to work against  the sahibs "for the regeneration of  of our common motherland." The  passage quoted is from a speech delivered at a congress of the> all  Indian Moslem League which has  attracted  painted attention in Eng  land and among the British in India.  Officials of the Indian government  are heard . to declare that unless  something is done there may be a  catalysm, ' worse even than the  terrible Sepoy mutiny. Britains  attitude to the Turks being used as a  torch with which the Indian Mohammedans hope to light the fires of  revolution and it has all the signs  of reaching fruition in deeds of desperation.

The Political Cry of "Gag."  The Liberal press throughout the  country have had a deal to say in  regard to the legitimate measures  adopted hy a majority of the House  of Commons to facilitate, after  reasonable discussion, the passage  of the naval bill. Their conduct  has almost amounted to hysteria,  and people have almost been led  lo believe that the Dominion is  being run by a group of autocrats.  But the following, culled from the  speeches of many prominent Liberals  and uttered while they were in  power, will prove interesting insomuch as they show that the idea of  the "closure," or gag as they call  it, was near to their hearts during  the latter portion ot their term of  office. The reason why Sir Wilfrid  never amended the rules of the  House was because he could find  no reasonable excuse for doing so.  Here are some of the Liberal quotations:  "I give my pledge that the rules  of the House will be changed.���  Hon. Sidney Fisher, in   1911.  "Obstruction is a vice that must  be extirpated from our political  life."���Hon.   Rodolphe Lemieux, in  1911.  -"The closure must come to Canada."���Hon. Charles Murphy, in  1911.  "1 am prepared to vote closure  and put closure,through, do matter  how" long that may take."���Sir  Allan Aylesworth, in 1911.  "Every   member  of  this  been occasioned by the recent heavy  arrivals of immigrants from Australia into British Columbia and  wonder has often been expressed  that Australia, the so-called "work-  ingman's country" should be one  of the sources from which Canada  obtains her immigrants. But that  which is' being witnessed in Vancouver is also being seen at the  Tilbury docks, London, where large  numbers of disappointed returning  immigrants from Australia figure  largely on the passenger lists of the  steamers. Some of them only, left  the shores of Britain last July and  are telling different tales than those  which lured them away. For instance, the rents which they were  called upon to pay���$20 per month j  for a small cottage���and the low i  scale of wages offered. The wages  on the government works seldom  exceed 25 cents per hour and often  as not they could only manage to  get in five days in the week. The  heat was another drawback and few  of ihe women were able to stand it.  It will therefore be seen that there  are worse places for the British"  immigrant to go to than B.C., although it is a moot point among us  whether the continued boosting of  this province among the working  classes of the United Kingdom will  not eventually do us considerable  and lasting harm.

PIMPLES, AND ALL SKIN AND BLOOD DISEASES  ARE COMPLETELY CURED  BY THE  ; NEW METHOD TREATMENT  British Naturalization  Is a child born in Canada of German parents a British subject, or  must he be naturalized before he  he is a British subject?  The above query was recently  submitted to the editor of one of  Canada's influential papers and  elicited the following reply:  By the rules "of British law any  child, whatever the nationality of its  parents, if born within the British  Dominions, is, with two exceptions,  a natural born British subject, even 1  though the parents "may  be merely!

The   bill   is   now  ready for the governor's signature.  According to the provisions of the  bill,   any   company   desiring  to sell  stocks  and bonds  in  the state must  secure a license  from   the securities  commission with which the company  must file   its   articles   of incorporation   and   a complete   statement of  the support back  of the proposition.  This securities commission will consist   of   the banking  commissioner,  the state treasurer, and trie attorney  general.      A fee of one-tenth, of one  per   cent   of  the   face   value  of the  securities   which    it   is    desired   to  sell must be paid, but   this fee shall  not be less  than $10 nor more than  $100.

They   would  not have  appealed to two more willing agents  tor the forwarding of this invitation  than to Sir Edward Grey and Mr.  Bryan. If ever there was a man  sighing for days of settled peace  that man is Sir Edward Grey, who  for months has been fighting  manfully for peace against all the  powers of strife, and holding the  unenviable position of a sort of  umpire between angry disputants.  The congress of the powers which  has so long been acting an mediator  between the nations is an earnest  and a foretaste of the day when  friendly counsels shall triumph over  war. .  d. l.

I  tried home-made salves, herb salves,  and various home made preparations,  and these proved of no use, but when I  tried Zam-Buk I was cured in a quarter  of the time that I had been experimenting in vain with other preparations.  "On another occasion I had one of  my fingers crushed, and in that case  also Zam-Buk was the only remedy I  used.    It healed the wound splendidly.  "My boy had boils, and once again  Zam-Buk brought about a complete  cure. We have also used it as a household balm, for the injuries and skin  diseases which are common to every  person, and can say that in our experience there is nothing to equal Zam-  Buk."

The company is malting loan3 from coast to coast in Canada to its  contract holders at but  "Passers-By."  No play of our times has won greater  applause or become more boloved in the  household than "Passers-By," the humanly and humorous comedy drama of C.  Haddon Chambers, which ia to bo pi e-  sented on Thursday next in the Phoenix Opera house. It delighted thousands at the Wyndham theatre, London,  and last year ran through the whole  of the season at the Criterion theatre,  in New York.  The play, which runs four acts, tells  the best human and humorous story  ever presented upon the American  stage. It comes from England and will  be presented by an English company of  special selection.  The familiar picture of the ruined  woman, becomes new in the new light  of Peter Waverton's apartments in  Piccadilly, and the reckless youth who  caused her downfall becomes a hero  under Mr. Chambers' human touch.  The play begins when Peter Waver-  ton, rich and well born, invites the cabman and the derelict to his apartment  largely for his own entertainment, and  then the "woman" drifts in, the woman that loved Peter and wandered away  in the long ago; next comes the boy, the  beautiful boy, the living evidence of  that love.  And finally the ''woman" of Peter's  own kind, to whom he is engaged, is introduced. Here you have a combination rich in its possibilities, and Mr.  Chambers makes the most of them when  the child is lost and the grand lady is  left to comfort the heart-broken mother.

YOU CAN  AVOID ALL THESE THINGS  BY TAKING  NYALS' BLOOD  PURIFIER  Sometimes there are no outward symptoms of impure  blood, but instead there is a feeling of langour, a run down  listless condition, loss o(.appetite,���showing' that the organs and  tissues of the body are not being1 nournished as they should be.  The\ise of Nyal's Blood Purifier is followed by the  most pleasing' results. The boils heal up and disappear; the  skin becomes soft and smooth again, instead of harsh and  scaly, or pimpled. The liver is stimulated, the blood enriched,  and soon the whole system feels the beneficial effect of this  excellent remedy.  Phoenix Drug Company  'Phone 16. T. S."
