Mining  The Vancouver Exhibition association awarded special prizes to  Voight camp and also to J. Knud-  so.n for splendid samples of copper  ore and felspar exhibits.  In   the  north   drift,   on   the  250  level of   the Silver   Standard   mine,  at New Hazleton, they httve recently  encountered   the same shoot of  ore that   they  had   on   the 100 foot  level.    They   have   extra  good ore  on the drift on the upper.     For the  next few   weeks   pradtically the en-  iire force will be employed in taking-  out ore,  and -as   soon   as   the- sr-ow  arrives the shipment of ore will commence.      The property   is   repoiteJ  to have " now   reached   the  stage of  being able to finance itself.  A coast paper   reports  that some  attention is likely to be directt-d towards   operating-   the    placer   gold  that is known to exisc on  the north  beach of Graham island.   The chief  ^difficulty   that  faces   the   operators  .   i,s the fine quality  of the gold parti-.  ~cles, which   are,much   in the nature  of the flour or flake variety.     Then  there are   the   heavy seas which up  to the   present have   rendered effective work an   impossibility.     A few  years   ago,   sa^s   the   report, many  pre-emptors and others around Tow  hill,   with    primitive   methods,   demonstrated that the sands were rich  in gold, and   some   of  them are alleged    to    have   made   fairly   good  .clean-ups.  According to the Portland Canal  Miner, .there is an unconfirmed report that ore has bean "encountered  in .the, big tunnel' now being- driven  to tap the Glacier creek vein series  at depth, intense interest has been  manifested during-the past week regarding-the striking of a vein, and  as the big bore is past the 1900  foot mark, there is every-reason to  belieVe that there is some truth in  the report, although it may be too  early to expect the tunnel' to be in  the main   ore   body.

R.  D.  Featherstonhaugh  has returned from a   visit of inspection of  the workings, of the  Omineca Gold  Mines,  Limited, on  what is known  as. Quartz   creek.     He   is  of   the  opinion   that  the  old   channel   has  been "discovered, and  that Omineca  is on the eve of coming into its own.  This condition, Ke says, will be hastened when the transportation facilities now rapidly nearing completion  are    an   accomplished   fact.      Mr.  Featherstonaugh   is also   authority  forv the   statement   that  the   trains  will be running  into North Vancouver via the Grand Trunk Pacific and  over the  Pacific .Great Eastern, be  fore  they   are running  into   Prince  Rupert from Fort George.  W. J.   Mogridge,   a mining man,  who has just returned to Vancouver  from���a trip of inspection and investigation of the mineral belt near the  headquarters   of the    Indian   river,  brings an   enthusiastic report of the  possibilities of  the  copper deposits  of that district.      The showings, he  says', are; retnarkably  good, and  at  present a crew  of government forestry men are engaged  in cutting a  trail   into that   district, which when  completed,   will make   it possible to  enter it   by way  of Wigwam Inn at  the   mouth   of   Indian   river.   ' Tne  newly-located.   London   group   was  also, inspected   on   the trip and Mr.  Mogridge  says the surface samples  showed - $23   in   copper  and   gold,  and two ounces in silver to tbe ton.

During 1913, the plant has been  operating at only two-thirdscapacity.  A conspicuously favorable feature  of the^ figures is the unusually high  gold-silver yield from the ores.* It  will be noted that  while  the copper  past years there have been charged  against options and their development, and plant additions, etc., expenditures (based on per pound of  copper produced) amounting to 3.08c  |inl912, 2.27c. in 1911, 2.96c. in  1910, and 1.80c. in 1909.  The British Columbia Copper  company in the past few weeks has  come unexpectedly into funds  through the payment by its subsidiary, the New Dominion Copper  company, of interest on the-latter's  bonds. The New Dominion Copper  company has outstanding $500,000  of 10-year 6 per cent .convertible  bonds and interest payment was  made on coupon No. 4, September  1, the disbursement amounting in  all to $30,000. The British Columbia Copper company, which controls  the New Dominion, was the biggest  single beneficiary of the latter's dis-  Jewel Mine a Payer  The Jewel   mine  on   Long lake,  the   only   free    gold   property  and  stamp mill in the Boundary district,  has at last been satisfactorily placed  on    a  practical    and   business-like  working basis.     Below ground  the  process   of   mining,    together with  development  is affording  the company   the   keenest    of satisfaction,  while the   mill,  which has   been the  property's principal  hoodoo, is now  running  like   the  proverbial    oiled  machinery and  treating  upwards ot  fifty tons of ore daily.      No concen?  trates are now shipped, as hitherto,  all   of them   being   handled by  the  tube mill and   reduced  in  the assay  furnace.    The   values   stated   to be  lost since   the   last  opening   of the  mine are   said   to   have   been  sixty  cents   per ton,   but  this   figure has  now  been   reduced   to thirty- cents.  The working force below ground  is at present much under that which  could   be   profitably  employed,  but  this condition of affairs is shortly to  be remedied when the new boarding  house,   now   under  construction, incompleted,   thus  enabling the company   to  accomodate   an ' increased  force of men.      The staff at present  numbers about thirty-five men.      In  addition   to   the   boarding   house,  other  buildings   are   in   course  of  erection, under the capable management    of  Chas.   Oliver,   who    was  entrusted with  the work  in connection with the erection of the mill.  Manager  Banks,  who  without  a  doubt is the  party  mainly responsible forthe present satisfactory state  I of the property, expects  to leave at  Visited Hj-ddeT-r^-Creek  J. E.

In   other words   it  must be see:i  to   be  adequately realized.     The travellers were, in this  instance, not  content,  as many are,  with the straight point  to point trip  from Vancouver  to  Prince Rupert.  On the   contrary   they visited every  nook and  cranny   of  the  coast line  that had in   it the germs   of a prospective future.   But of all the places  stopped    at,    none    impressed    the  travellers, or excited keener.interest,    '  than   their   few   days   stay at  the  Hidden creek mine, as the guests of  the Granby company's general-supt.,  O. B. Smith.     "I never saw such a  place," said Mr. Thompson.     "The  progress up there is simply wonderful," and from these and other eulogistic references, our  representative  was led   to believe   that   half of tbe    -  -truth has not been told of the splendid progress   made  towards placing  that property   on   a   shipping basis.

The   officials realize that no mine lasts forever, and   have   wisely adopted the  sound policy of looking   around for  additional    properties    while    these  latter may be cheaply obtained, and  while,   too,   the   British    Columbia  company is   in  a favorable position  for bargaining for such properties.  In 1912 there were   spent  $230,000  in taking up  new   options   and  ex-  DISTINCTIVE  ing in   mind   that   the  charges   for  breaking down 450,000 tons   of ore  have   already   been   entered   on the  books, it is apparent that the British  Columbia   Copper   company,   Ltd.,  finds itself in a very   favorable position for  lucrative  operation   in  the  next few months.     It is  announced  by the company's officials   that   the  plant which has been operating this  year'at only two-thirds capacity will  be  started   full   blast   in   the   near  future, but a  definite  date   has not  yet been set.  School Fire Drill  With a view to preventing any  repetitiou of the lamentable panics,  caused by outbreaks of fires in public schools, and incidentally to inculcate in the minds of the youngsters  a.certain measure of discipline for  some such emergency, the provincial department of education has  ordered all schooPprincipals to exercise their pupils at fire drill for not  less than ten minutes every week.  On Wednesday afternoon, by request, a demonstration of the fire  drill as practiced in the local public  school, was afforded a representative of this paper, the results of  which should be more than sufficient to dissipate any misgivings  among the parents as to the safety  of their children while at school.  The alarm was sounded about two  o'clock, and within the incredible  short space.of 43sec. the class rooms  of both up and downstairs were  emptied, and the pupils clear of the  building. Considering the diversi .y  of nations representated, the e<-  treme youth of the majority, together with the unfortunate-fact tint  only   one- exit   was   available,   the'  manoeuvre reflects no little credit  on Principal Barnes and the other  members of the school staff. The  number of pupils engaged in the  drill was 135, or ten short of the  number enrolled.  Worth Consideration  The serious attention of the Federal member for this district, Hon.  Martin Burrell, is respectfully directed to that sheet of water, lying  midway between Oro Denora and  Eholt, and distant from Phoenix  about 5j4 miles. The lake in question, commonly known as Loon  lake, is somewhere about a mile in  length, and half a mile in width, yet  there is not a single specimen of  fish to be found in its waters. In  addition to its proximity to Phoenix,  the lake also has the advantage of  lying alongside of the magnificent  inter-provincial automobile highway.  In view of what the Dominion  Fisheries department accomplished  some twelve years ago for Lor.g  lake, which at that time was as  tenantless of the finny ttibe as is  Loon lake today, it would be an es-  (Coutinucd on Pago 4)  are the feature of  As they are also the  demand of good dressers, we can supply your  Summer needs.  .

The most valuable pearl ever  found in the United States has been  taken to Chicago to be appraised.  The pearl was found by Dr. Jesse  Carr on the banks of the Fox river.  It weighed 62 grains, and is pronounced a perfect specimen. The  finder named it "Queen of America"  and made a present of it to his wife.  Its value is stated to be between  $2000 and $3000.  The new  battleship Kongo, constructed   in   Great  Britain   for* the  Japanese government,  sailed  from  Plymouth   last  week.  * She carries  forty of the latest make of torpedoes  each of which has a range of from  eight to twelve thousand yards and  a speed of 56  miles an hour.

The Times reports the formation  of the United Kingdom of an employers', defence union, which is to  raise a fund of $250,000,000 with  the object of consolidating the resources' of the employers and maintaining their rights, and freedom  to deal with labor unions. Each  member of the union is asked to  guarantee    a    sum - commensurate  which is quite harmless, but one of  the most violent coloring matters  known. Should there be the slightest motion of blood the fluorescine  carried through the body stains it a  vivid golden yellow, while the eyes  assume'a deep emerald green. If  there is no movement of the blood,  the coloring matter is not dispersed  and consequently there is no  change.  1300 Miles By Canoe  Edmonton, Sept. 3.���C. D. Melville, of4he Dominion Fisheries Department, accompanied by John  McKenna, have recently arrived in  Edmonton after completing a journey of over 1600 miles, 1300 of  which was accomplished in a canoe.  The trip was in the interests of the  Dominion Fisheries department,  and afforded the former party an  opportunity of investigating the  vast possibilities of the northern  waters, which he says team with  whitefish and other food varieties.  Shooting  from   the  canoe, while  spinning along the Peace and Wab-  asca rivers,   the  party secured two  large  bears, and also   a  couple of  moose.      They  also   report  seeing  large numbers   of bear, moose and  other big game,   as   well as geese,  ducks and other feathered fowl.  On  the   way  from  Athabasca   to   Fort  Vermillion they came across indications of asphalt and sulphur, as well  as iron and other metals.

Information since received at the Capital  shows that the clearance papers  were wrong. The papers were for  a point in Alaska. It is now believed that there were 100 Japs on  board when the vessel left Japan,  yet, when seized, had only a small  crew. It is feared that the Japanese were smuggled into British  Columbia somewhere along the  coast. The vessel was provided  with charts of the British Columbia  coast line.

The Delicacy of the Summer Season ���  FAMOUS CURLEW ICE CREAM-TRY ONE  KNOB HILL AVENUE  Hertzog and Laurier  The following appeared recently  in the editorial columns of the  Brantford Expositor, a leading Ontario Liberal organ:  "For some time -past' Genera}  Botha, the South African premier,  like Sir Wilfrid, has be'en unpopular with a certain section of the  members of his own nationality because of being too Imperialistic in  his sentiments. In fact he has had  his own trouble with General Hertzog, the Bourassa of South Africa,  and a former member of his own  government, on this very ground."  This is very interesting.in view of  the following last week in the junior  Liberal newspaper of Edmonton:  7 "Upon the same question exactly  as divides the Liberal and Conservative parties in Canada upon the  naval question, the Africander party of South Africa has split into two  parts, Hertzog leading the sentiment' which correspouds with the  sentiment here, and GeneralBotha  leading the sentiment which corresponds with that of the Conservatives  in Canada. Nothing in recent  months more strikingly displays the  real crux of the great question involved than the parallel utterances  at almost the same time of the two  leaders of the. same opinion, Hertzog and Laurier on the opposite  sides of the globe."  The Edmonton supporter'of Sir  Wilfrid'. is to be congratulated on  its frankness. There can be , no  question that it is correct, and news  papers like the Expositor, it may be  unwittingly, fail to interpret properly the Liberal leader's'views.  Hertzog and Laurier are "two  leaders of the same opinion;" Hertzog has' done everything in his  power to prevent Botha making  South Africa a British country, in  fact as well as in name. He has  appealed to the narrowest of South  African prejudices in an effort to  keep that dominion from taking its  proper place in the Empire.  But Hertzog is being beaten in  South Africa and his Canadian  counterpart will be beaten here.  The only thing that has prevented  Sir Wilfrid from being absolutely  discredited with all who value the  British connection, is the impression  that followers of his, like the Brantford Expositor, have persistently  striven to convey that he is a sincere imperialist.  But both here and in the old land  he is at last been seen in his true  colors/ The following from the  London .Saturday Review is, fully  justified by the article in the Edmonton paper that is quoted from  above.  "If there has ever been any doubt  as to   the   real   purpose   behind  Sir  Wilfrid   Laurier's opposition  to the  Borden   naval  policy,   there   can be  none after his latest  speech in Quebec.     He confesses that so far back  as   1902   he   rejected   proposals   intended   to   concentrate   the military  powers   of  the   Empire in   London.  He is,   therefore,   consistent,   as wc  have always   recognized   him to be,  in his determination  to  leave Canada free to   act   as   she feels inclined  in any Liberal crisis.      There would  be   co-operation,   if  there   were cooperation at  all, only  after  Canada  had been   convinced   that  the cause  of the Empire's was Canada's.      Sir  Wilfrid   Laurier    has   never   understood that   there   could   be no such  middle course.     Canada must either  fight for   the Empire   or  haul clov n :  the flag.     If   his   words   mean anything they   mean  separation, \vhi.:b  is   precisely what   Mr. Borden   said!  of Sir Wilfrid's   attitude   long ago. I  Reasons Galore  Replying to'the demand of N. K.  LaFlamme, K.C/, as to the why  and wherefore of the minister of the  interior's action in ordering the expulsion of the murderer, Harry  Thaw, from Canada, Mr. Marechal,  K.C, representing the government,  gave the following reasons:  1. That the original of the writ  had not been served on the immigration authorities connected with  the case, but only copies which were  irregular.  2'. That each writ served should  have borne the original signature  of the judges issuing and also the  man' who served them, which law  had not been fulfilled;   '  3. That being a criminal matter,  Judges Gervais and Cross, sitting  in chambers, had no right to issue  the writ, which should have come  up before a judge, of the whole.district in which the prisoner was held.  4.

This  latest batch shows how Japan negotiated secretly and simultaneously with Russia and Great Britain,  and how Germany refused to enter  into an alliance with Japan and  England. Viscount Hayashi uses  harsh words in his characterization  of Japanese diplomacy, calling various aspects of it 'breach of faith  lack of honor and outrageous conduct.' He says the alliance was  brought about at the cost of the respect of Russia and Europe.  An Excellent Record;  "Mr. Burrell~has made an excellent  record   as   Minister   of Agriculture.

On Tuesday a public  meeting was held in the Miners' Union  hall for the purpose of discussing ways  and means for the formation of a team  to defend the array of silverware captured by the locals last season. There  was a very creditable number present,  but other than the selection of a strong  sports committee, no other business of  importance was discussed. P. J.

It is  difficult to say which "class" carries  the greatest amount of approval,  drama, educational, classic, travel and  comedy, but it would be safe to say  that the picture, "Two Old Pals,"  shown last Wednesday, is a prime  favorite, and we undcrstar-d will' be  shown again tonight by special request  as an extra.
