' *. ^  "     o1*    ��      "��������� A ,  Considerable^ dissatisfaction   has  been occasioned in both 'Greenwood  ���   and  Phoenix' over, J;he apathy "dis.  played by the militia department to.  wardsthis district 'as,a field for re-  cruiting soldiers for the oversea expeditionary force.    True the' order  fo bring up the Grand Forks militia  to full   strength   has  been obeyed,  but would it not have been better to  ��� fill up its ranks to war strength with  men ��� willing  to  go  anywhere  and  everywhere in preference to making  it a sort of home guard, for which  there is at present very  little if any  need.    A few weeks ago these two  towns possessed scores of men who  only awaited the'opportunity to en-  Jist.ebut who have npw departed for  other towns to avail themselves of  the opportunity denied them in their  own cities.     Three -weeks   ago   a  ��� number  went  to  Grand .Forks  to  offer  their, services  in  the 'oversea  force,  but were told \ by the officer  commanding     the "Sharpshooters,  that he had no instructions concern,  ing them,' although .at tbe time re-  cruiting  was  in  full  swing  in  all  other   portions   of_the   Dominion.  Time  is  very precious now, and a  couple of weeks rigorous rifle practice  before  leaving  for   Valcartier  would prove of incalculable  value.  There should be a recruiting station  in'Greenwood, or if the station is in  Grand Forks, then  free transportation to and fro should be allowed all  "candidates'. ,*- _  Boundary Prospecting  t " *      * yr~ r-  Eric   Jackson, 'of  Phoenix, 'and  Scot  McRae   of Greenwood,  who  have been spending the; past two or  three weeks prospecting to the east  of Greenwood,  returned on.Wednesday.       The  former  stated   that  never in   all hisr many years experience  had   he suffered   so  much by  reason of the scarcity of water. The  whole countryside is dried up,' and  while at other times it was an easy  matter to secure water in that district,   it was  next  to  impossibility  this season.    As to the presence of  mineral looking ground   in  the district visited,  Mr. Jackson says^that  although   they made their  way as  far as Keeley and^Bear mountains,  they were  unable  to  see  anything |  but' granite   and  tamarack      The  scarcity of game was another notable feature, not a solitary deer, bear  or grouse  being sighted the whole  time they were out.' <'   *  as  received in  e  les  The following is a summary of the position of affair a  Phoenix late on Friday evening: "  The London Times correspondent claims, that the-right wing of th  German army has reached a point near Beauvais,- which is about 25 mile  from the outer fortifications of Pa"ris.

The Austrians re  treated leaving 1000 prisoners and ,70" guns. Next day Austrians were  again defeated, when 20 more guns fell into the hands of the Russians  The Austrians left 4,500 dead on, the field. The capture of Lemburg in  Austrian Poland, is officially confirmed, and a report says that Slav regiment has mutinied against the Austrian commanders.  The advance of the German /right wing, whjch is the one that has  been furiously attacking the British left, has received a check and has  been thrown back by a counter attack to it? position of a few days ago.  The London official bureau sflys that trustworthy information has  been received'that several German'itorpedo boats have arrived at Kiel in  a damaged condition. Others are reported to have been sunk in vicinity  of Kiel. This would seem to indicate a raid by British on German Baltic  squadron. * ' ���'   -  Official report says that a British torpedo boat struck'a mine in  North Sea while"rescuing crew of a merchant steamer that had also been  blown up. ,        "      ���' ,  |    B.C; Mining    |  Arrivals From England  J ��Tty* ^ritishiArmy.Rifle  >' ��� .The dreadful, carnage; caused 1 by-  the British infantry fire, is irva cer-  ,  tain measure ,du^ ,to_tbe>magjnificent  -arm-with which'they are ^equipped.

Mrs.  H.   Deane,  sister-in-law'of  Danny Deane, accompanied by her  three daughters,  the Misses Alice,  Louise and   Ethel arrived   in town  on Monday from  London, England.  This is their  first visit to  Canada,  and a short time   prior to their departure from" the  Motherland, they  were witnesses to many  of the stirring scenes  that   preceded and followed the outbreak   of 'war.

Domestic  buying  is   re-'  ported   decidedly  more active, arid  about  half the  normal   amount of  copper is being exported.    The exports for the 'first  25  days  of .this  month^   amounted    to    34,504,960  pounds, which  is  fully  50%  of the  average during the six months pre:  ceeding the outbreak   of the  Euro-  The First From Canada  The first Canadian soldier to lose  his life in the service of the empire,  since the call to arms was sounded,  is Gordon William Betts, a 15-year-  old private in the Fifth Royal Highlanders of Montreal.

A few men were'sent up lo  the Whitewater on Moqday, but the  management states thatjhey may be  only/there  for  a  short   period,   in  order to make use of a.quantity of  supplies at the mine, and to take out  some ore while doing so.    Various  reports as to the Trail smelter being  in  the  market   for   ore   have   been  circulated and obtained  credence in  many  quarters,   but   it  is  hard  to  secure    any   reliable   confirmation.  Trail is known to have a large quan-1  tity of silver-lead ore, on hand at the  present time, and until such time as  this is marketed, any further buying  is unlikely.    Market condition may  improve after a time, ^rrio're particu-*  lariy'when it   becomes   certain   that  the British fleet   has   an   undoubted  command of the sea.  i  :4  ,  The Unbidden Guest  The windiest prisoner .that ever  monopolized the time of a court,  appeared before Police Magistrate  J.

We wish to say that this is absolutely  untrue. We have no intention whatever of  closing our stores, nor do we intend to advance a single price unless the market com-  pells us to do so.  In the' .'-lyiatter of Credit  We intend to deal with each customer  individually, and to extend all the accommo-  dation in our power.  We ask our Customers, however, to pay  us every cent they possibly can, as we are up  against a trying situation even for a firm ,of  our size.  Play fair with us'and you will find that  the Big Store will stay with you during the_  hard times.  inaugurated. ��� vTbe surplus that will  thus^ be created apparently isallthat  the producing companies propose to  accumulate, the exceptions to this  rule being Calumet & Hecla, Wolverine and Mohawk, which are continuing production "at approximately  their normal rate, and; the various  Phelps, vJDqdge" & Co.:.. which> are  operating ��� at approximately 75 per  ;cent':capacity^;.';- /T^l- ���'-.���;.''' :-  Owners of copper mining shares  and of other stocks also are more  seriously,depressed concerning the  future outlook than real fundamental  conditions justify. Notwithstanding  the stock exchanges closed after a  gruelling decline in prices, and that  the prospects of an early resumption  of trading are by no means bright,  that, speculation" which brings advancing prices is as necessary to industrial expansion and trade activity  as sunshine and rains are to the  growth of crops. It has as its foundation a natural law which cannot  be undermined by legislative enactment or set aside by the decrees of  potentates.  Our recent exports apparently have  relieved the acute scarcity of copper  that existed in Europe, as the price  of electrolytic in London, which was  around 15^c. a week or two ago,  has declined to about 13c.���Boston  Commercial.  tairy honors, took place inMontreal, j  on Aug;-30. ;  ���''..'������..-.���'��� "'"���-."''."'/���'���;'.-\     '.������'���'.

The negotiations for the  purchase of two. lots, situate at the  corner of First street and KnobhiH  avenue were concluded a couple of  weeks ago, and the work of preparing the ground in readiness for  the erection of the structure, is proceeding with despatch. The lots  have a frontage of about sixty feet  and the position is one of the most  central in town.  Phoenix has contributed its quota  to Canada's overseas expeditionary  force, and although the number  was pitifully-small, it will undoubtedly make up for the deficiency in  efficiency, all of, them having at  some time or other received a naval  of military training. The three boys,  Messrs" D. Patterson, Jas. Porter  and Teddy Horrel, left for Valcartier a week ago, quite a large number of friends and well wishers assembling at the depot to wish them  "Godspeed." - Four more from  Phoenix joined the detachment at  Nelson, having left here a short  time before to enlist in Nelson. His  worship the mayor informs us that  he was in communication with the  officer commanding the militia at  Grand Forks, this week, and has  the assurance that Phoenix and  Greenwood will not be overlooked  when the next call is sounded.

The  proceedings are under' the auspices  of the local union of Western Federation of Miners.  The Phoenix Tennis club have arranged to spend Labor Day by holding a club tournament on their  ground near the Idaho shaft. In  the evening they will hold a dance  in the K.

JL FULLER, .Proprietor  Edmonton. Sept. 4.���Scores of  men, working with "grizzlies'^ and  pans are at work along the banks of  the Saskatchewan river, near Edmonton, washing gold from the  gravel and sand on the bars. Ex-  perienced placer miners are directing  the work, which is designed to  solve the unemployed problem during the next three months.  A gravel company, which has  been operating, in the river since  territorial days, using a steam  dredge .to take the gravel from the  beds and bars, takes out. thousands  of dollars in flour gold each year.  The fine particles of precious metal  not detained by the riffles are  caught on woollen Blankets.  "There is-gold in the river for  those not afraid of a little hard  work," says L. W. Huff, who has  been engaged in the work for a dozen years. "It is" in fine dust and  requires some patience to separate.  The supply is practically inexhaustible, as high water in the spring  brings more flour gold down from  the mountains."  Everything in Men's Wear  Clothing?  . Underwear  Shirts .
