Yet,   mingled   with  pride for the  action1*   of those who  have  gone   forth, is   the  feeling of  sorrow for  the dependents of those  who have been bereft of loved ones.

The   late   Major    Anderson    was  born in India.     His  father   was an  officer in the Royal   Engineers, and  served in the heroic defence of Luck-  now.    The major himself had seen  considerable foreign service, serving  at Malta, in India, and on  the general staff in  Crete .during  the days  that   antedated   the   cession   of the  island   to   Greece.

PHOENIX, B  ConditionsofErrtistment   Sj Worth Looking For  6, 19J5  Letter of Thanks  A story as strange as that of the  famous Lost Cabin mine  is told by  Colonel Robert Stevenson. '  Forty-  five years ago a Frenchman .named  Lacroux,! in the employ of the Hudson Bay company, was fur trading  with the Indians on the Skeenariver.  In his travels he found a small ledge  of blue-black mineral that  appeared  to be almost  pure   metal,     lie cut  away about half a   pound   of it and  turned it over to John McCulcheon,  a'telegraph operator who was working on the old government line then  being built to the north.

Since  that   time   he   has   mined  in  Alaska, and was  in the   Kootenays  in the early   times.    Last  summer  he  was   prospecting  in   the  Teslin  Lake country in   Southern   Alaska.  It   is   declared   the  ledge was previously discovered and partly worked  by a   party  of  Americans who,  however, disappeared in the vortex  of the Civil War to   which   they returned.      A    Hudson    Bay   trader  shared this knowledge with them of  the location, and recently Guttridge  and the   other  prospector   received  the benefit of it.    It is described as a  contact vein four feet wide, of talcon  schist and quartisite, with a  35  degree dip, striking northeast and well  in on the mountain summit.  Falls Twenty Feet  An accident, entailing serious injuries to Del Parker, a local rancher,  occurred a few days ago in the low-  er town.      Mr. Parker was proceed  increase in the flocks of quail in this  district.    Six  of these  birds   were  first   seen  in  the  neighborhood   of  Cascade during the spring of 1912,  having  evidently   made    their   way  from  Colville,   Wash., where some  had been turned loose.      The feathered visitors were carefully watched  and-even fed in the winter, with the  result that  their  numbers  have increased  to  about  fifteen   hundred.  Local hunters will no doubt make a  note of this, and   aid the authorities  in   every  possible   way   to protect :  these very desirable additions to the Y  local game list. Y  The pheasant in Grand Forks district is literally a  rara avis, but Mr.  Mator is making a personal effort to  propagate  them in   the   valley, and'..  for this purpose has in captivity five -  hens and one male.    He intends to"''  sit the eggs under bantams, and with  ordinary  luck hopes   to  turn a few  coveys loose next year.  dated,  "told   a'press   representative ��� t.      int|j..n  that the  shipments   of copper to the   :  refinery in New York by   rail would j-    Since that dme Colonel Stevenson  be discontinued as soon as the Pan.  has made five different trips back to  ama,-CanaLJs,re-oPened.���to traffic.

Razors Arrive  flmn,  Tobacco Fund Mounting  The Pioneer's fund for the purchase of tobacco for the Canadian  troops received a very welcome  boost this week by the arrival of a  letter and money order from Palmer  J. Cook, formerly of this city, and  now foreman of the Granby company's Midas mine in Alaska. The  money on hand, exclusive of that  on the list at the local bank, now  amounts to $11.25. The letter follows:  "Enclosed please find P.O. order  for five dollars as a contribution to  the Tobacco Fund for the boys who  have offered their services for the  defence of justice and liberty, and  here's hoping they may live to see  the fruits of their loyal sacrifice.  $2.50 of this contribution is from  Robert G. Shaw, a Scotsman as the  name implies, but whose blood has  not changed although he has been  an American citizen for about t ven-  ty years. The rest -is from yours  truly."  The consignment of 56 razors  collected by the Pioneer and donated  by public-spirited residents of Phoenix and other parts of the Boundary,  were not long in arriving at their  destination, as the following letter  denotes:  Cutlers' Hall, Sheffield, Eng.,  Oct. 13th, 1915.  Dear sirs:���I am in receipt of  your letter of the 21st nil., and the  consignment of 56 razors which  came to hand this morning.  Will you please convey*my warm,  est thanks to the donors who have  so kindly contributed towards this  collection.  Although the response has been  very generous, there is still an urgent need for razors for the troops,  and I shall be pleased to receive any  further lots you may be able to  send.  I very much appreciate  the  interest you are taking in my appeal.  Yours faithfully,  W. H. Ellis.

No one,   least  of  all   the  common  people, will object to this, providing  of course  that the Canadian farmer  has   received   a   profitable  price for  his product.   For  years he has commanded a price, and the people have  paid it, but now  comes the suggestion that   the government  let down  the   bars at   the   American   border,  not to let  the American  product in,  but to   allow   the Canadian product  to be  shipped   out   in  order  that it  may  be  sold   at  a   higher figure in  the market of the republic.     It will  be  seen   then   that   we  are' face to  face   with   a   deliberately    planned  scheme to  enrich   the  farmer at the  expense of the   common people, for  no wheat will   enter  this country if  the _^avernment    declares  for  The valuable statue of the ������Lyric  Muse" has been stolen from the art  collection at the Panama Exposition.

Bill Legree  A story highly reminiscent of the  days of "Uncle.Tom's Cabin," appeared   in   tbe.recent   issue of the  Grand Forks Sun,.and  certainly deserves  tbe  instant  attention of the  provincial    law   department.     The  story in question possesses the hallmark of  truth   and   unfolds  to   the  people of British Columbia the slavish attitude of the  Doukhobors towards their leader, or rather driver,  Peter Veregin, and the almost uncontrollable power he wields over their  individual destinies.    Veregin is alleged to haveordered about a dozen  girls into a barn, and there stripped  entirely mide, they were mercilessly  lashed with a  whip at  the hands of  this modern- British   Columbia Bill  Legree;    The  crime  for which   this  indignity was inflicted is said to  be  due to the reluctance of  the giris to  hand   into   the   common   fund   the  money they had earned by their own  labor.    For years now, this Veregin  has set   the laws of this country at  defiance and the time has arrived to  deal with   him   and   his   misguided  dupes.     Fines   are  of  no  use,' imprisonment for a month  or two is a  joke.    But once  let  the authorities  commence the  practice of deporting  the leaders  back   to Russia, and all  opposition   to   our   beneficent laws  will cease.  ���C."I was  an  hungered and   ye fed  me," said Sir William Mackenzie at  a   recent   banquet   in    Vancouver.  Quite true,   William.     Quite   true.  The  people   fed   you,   in  fact they  stuffed  you.    And   now  comes  the  reaction.    They  in  turn  are fed up  with you.    Six dollars per head was  a   heavy price   to   pay William  for  flooding clear  old   Canada with   the  offscourings of central Europe, and  mostly enemies at that.    We always  suspected  that  Canadian   Northern  steamship line of yours Bill, and but  for the fact   that valuable lives were  lost; each   of  whom  was  a   million  times more valuable to Canada than  ever you were   or   ever  will be, the  sinking of the Royal Edward   in the  Mediterranean  would  have  been   a  happy incident.  <#*    ��  _- - -  "Lt is time we forgot the local  names, and all responded to the one  great name of Britisher."���Major  Godson at Vancouver.

General Bethune related the  story at a recruiting rally at Reading.  i' " '  SUTTONQ  E EDO.  for garden erad farm ore best  for B.C.ooil Soo frtfclo&Wfor  :��� solid guarantor of purifar  ana gerxDJutientioii.

During the period from 1875 to  the year 1914; the Dominion government has   given   aid   to railways-  Probably no district in the Dominion of Canada possesses so great an array of  potentialities as the above. The mountains throughout its entire length and breadth,  are almost without exception mineraliferous, containing gold, silver, copper, iron and  other valuable ores,_ while in a few localities there are more than surface indications  of the presence of coal. _   ;:  FOREST AND  MINERAL WEALTH  ��� Its forest stretches are among the richest in the province, and what is of great  importance, easily accessable to river and railway. There is scarcely a square mile of  it that is not either equipped with high tension wires, or which could not be reached  by the expenditure of the smallest outlay. Not the least attraction from the point of  view of the investor, is the sites for water power, which abound in this district.  Just at present an immense amount of interest is  being  directed, to the recent  free gold discovery in Greenwood, while in the same district is to  be seen one of the  best equipped free gold properties in the west, a not inconsiderable asset in these days  of industrial depression and shrinkage of gold reserves.     It is in this district where is  situated the Bhoenix and Grand   Forks properties of the  Granby Consolidated, together with those of the British Columbia Copper company.    In the former camp, anil  surrounding it for miles on all  sides, are  acres  of crown-granted mineral claims, all ���  awaiting the advent of the investor.    The title deeds  to these properties, thanks to a  beneficent series of mining laws, are unimpeachable, and if proof is wanted  of the  statement, let us point to the.almost entire absence of mining litigation in the courts  of the province. . . ,  AGRICULTURE AND FRUIT-GROWING CENTRE  The possibilities of the Boundary  as an  agricultural and fruit-growing centre -  are also worthy of investigation, and  a visit   to  some .of  its   spendidly equipped orchards will pr6ve a revelation to the stranger.
