The B. C. Copper company's Mother  Lode   mine,   at    Greenwood,   is  a  case   in   point,   and  for  some   few  months, in  addition to the ordinary  work at the mine, the  task of drill-  4830 holes,   averaging   in depth be-  tween 14 and 15  feet, has been go  ing on   under  the  direct ion   of the  company's    gcneral-supt.,   ^F  In the shaft of the Apex, near  New Denver, at a depth pf 53 feet,  la vein 18 inches in width was uncovered. The vein is quartz, carrying grey copper and ruby silver, dry  ore. The assay values have not yet  been obtained, but the ore will probably run very high in silver.  J. Knudson and H. B. Mausetle  have returned from their Iceland  spar deposit at Ashnola and brought  some samples. Besides the splendid  qualities of this spar for'the manufacture of cement it is used for glazing highgrades of earthenware and  porcelain. Iceland spar in a pure  .state is worth $6 per pound.  A.

Fine Hunting District  - Julius Carson, who recently returned to town from an extended  prospectlng'trip into tbe district to  the north-east of Carmi, reports  that he ran across some very promising-looking stretches awaiting  the coming of the pioneer settler,  although he admits they were somewhat out of the prospective track of  a railroad. He also says that the  whole country was alive with fur  and feather; grouse were particularly  abundant, as were also deer and  bear.

This    system   of  breaking   rock   wholesale   was   inaugurated   in   1911, but  for dimensions   this, latest   blast, which took  place on Monday niorning^ exceeded all others  that have taken place  in the history of that mine, or perhaps   any   other   property   on   the  American continent.    It is said that  upwards of -200,000  tons  of  rock  i were  displaced    by  the  explosion,  which  resembled a miniature earthquake.     Strange   to say," the noise  was   not   heard   either   here   or  at  Greenwood, but at  the   latter town  and at  Midway, a   slight   tremor of  tie earlli   was   i lie   only  intimation  that the   people had   that   the blast  had taken.place.    ' Extreme precautions against  accident-were taken,  and not   only   were the   families of  the   mine, employees ordered   from  the '-vicinity,   but-   their   household  effects also went with them.   Everything occurred,-as'MrV Norcross had  planned, and from the.standpoint of  that official the  results from a mining point of view exceeded expectations.

The efforts of the, city band is another item that helped  materially to enliven the ,day's proceedings; and it is to be hoped that  their appearance will do something towards arousing a more lively interest in so valuable a city.tasset.

The "Mikado" Coming  The next visiting attraction at the  opera house is one of deserving mention. The offering at the local play  house is the ever popular "Mikado,"  which is to be produced on Wednesday, Sept. 10th, by the well-known  Pollard Juvenile Opera company.  The fame of these youngsters is too  well known to require anything in the  nature of a special introduction to the  average theatre goer, suffice to say  that the entire company has won its  popularity during its previous visits to  the United States and Canada. Iu  this season's repertoire, there are a  number  of  Advices from New York this week  state that the preliminary   report of  the   Granby   Consolidated   for   the  fiscal  year  ended  June   30,    1913/  show that profits from  the  Phoenix  mines and the Grand Forks  smelter  amount to $1,207,661, of which the  sum of $449,955  was  disbursed   to  shareholders^ since   dividend    payments were resumed recently.  These figures are subject to minor  corrections by the final statement to  be submitted at  the  annual   stockholders'   meeting, October 7.     The  earnings for" July  and  August will  show some shrinkage, due   to slow  copper prices and somewhat smaller  recoveries, but the total for the year '  will reach approximately $1,250,000,  it is believed, as compared with $1,-  600,000 for the previous   12-month  period. ���/  In a circular letter to  the  stockholders, which will   be  mailedwith  the dividend checks for the   second   >  quarterly disbursement on  September 5, President W.

Rock Drilling: W. H.   Pierce,   D.  A  Johnson and Eli Risch.  The new recreation ground, without which there would have been  no celebration, was in excellent shape, especially in view of the fact that  up to practically tlie last minute the work of preparing it had been going  on. This is undoubtedly a valuable asset to the city, and no doubt the  future will see the area considerably enlarged. In spite of the fact that  the scenes of the day's program covered a large field, each had its quota  of interested onlookers, and practically every minute of daylight was  taken up in pulling off this or that event. Football commenced early,  the first match being between the Phoenix and Greenwood teams, the  former running away with the game and totalling up a score of four  goals to their opponents' duck egg. The second match, which was between the Mother Lode and Grand Forks elevens, was a touch and go  affair all through, the Mother Lode boys lowering their opponents'  colors by a score of 2-1. The battle royal of the series, however, took  place when ithe Phoenix boys faced their old and tried opponents from  Deadwood, in the the game which decided for the season the possessors  of the cup presented by the provincial member for Greenwood, J. R.  Jackson, and emblematic of the Boundary Football championship. Intense local interest centred around this event, and both sides strained  every effort to secure the coveted distinction. No goal was registered  in the first half and it looked as if a similar story would have to be told  of the second, when a clever shot by Davidson of the home team evaded  the visitors' goal keeper and decided the possession of the silverware.  Perhaps the greatest surprise of the day, was the totally unexpected  victory of Phoenix over the Grand Forks baseball nine, by a score of 5-1.  No one here had ever dared to imagine such a contingency, and consequently, the victory is all the more welcome, although it must be admitted that, such a situation as that which decided the match is hardly  likely to be repeated for some time to come. Bassett went to the bat  with all the bases full and fortunately made a connection with the hickory  that sent the ball to Helen Gonne and enabled him not only to relieve the  whole bunch, but also to make a home run besides. The Forks team,  however, took it all out of their Republic friends earlier in the day by a  score of seven to two.  Fourteen teams entered for the machine drilling contest, the first  prize for which was $175, and the second $75. Probably none of the  sports attracted so continuous a crowd of spectators as did this competition. From ten o'clock until almost dark the friendly rivalry continued, and much enthusiasm was aroused at the skillful manipulation of  the heavy Rand machine and tripod, which together with the average  results obtained would go to show that the machine miners of this camp  are easily capable of more than holding their own with the best on the  continent. Not a single flaw developed in the steel, which in every case  successfully met the severe test imposed upon, and drew from many the  highest enconiums on the workmanship of Messrs. W. H. Pierce and  J. S. Boyce, of the Granby and Rawhide mines mechanical staff.

An interesting letter on the subject of the nationality of Andrew  Carnegie, -written by Reginald  McKenna, has been received by  William Thome, a Labor member  of the Imperial parliament, who had  been persuaded by Lillian Scott  Troy, an American suffragette, to  inquire why the name of the well-  known ironmaster was on the  voters' list of the parish of Dornoth,  Scotland.

Saturday, Sept. 6, 1913  An Editor's Happy Lot  ".Did it ever occur to you," says  a contemporary, "why editors are  such cheerful liars? The cross-road  town of today would boycott the  man who dared to tell the truth and  nothing but the truth in .a country  newspaper. Strange as it may  seem to some, editors as a class are  born with a conscience, .but as they  here, and this .week one of the  Vancouver- ratepayers' association  went on record as opposing the entry of Orientals. The movement is  growing stronger to hare white  labor, which is more reliable, given  first chance, since, they are better  in every way if the future is to see  a continuous progress.���Monetary  Times.  Canada to Take Part  The government of Canada has  not been influenced by the decision  of the British authorities not to take  any part' in the forthcoming Panama-Pacific exposition. The Dominion has already allocated $500,-  000 for this country's exhibits, and  in addition to this, the separate  provinces will have exhibits of their  own, so that probably the amount  to be spent by the whole of the  Dominion iu Canada's representation at the exhibition will not be  far short'of a million dollars.  The site for the Dominion section  has already been secured, and the  construction of the building will begin.next month. ��� The basis of this  country's exhibits will be its natural  products,   such   as   fruit,   mineral,  Hotel Brooklyn  The Only-jFirst-Class and Up-To-Date  Hotel in Phoenix.

" "  "Mother'Swell-head has.a tea-  party with a dozen present. She  asks the editor to' say there were  fifty present and a four-course banquet followed. Mr. "Blowhard orders nine dollars worth of goods  and asks him to say that he has  nine hundred dollars -worth on- the  road.  "Let the meanest bid cuss in town  pass in his checks  and the preacher  and  editor  laud htm to  the skies.  No matter if he   has  been a wife-  beater, a chicken thief and a drunken reprobate,   who bucks  the tiger  while his   wife' chases dirty  undershirts up and   down   the washboard  to   feed   her   half-starved   children;  when this man's carcase is deposited  in the  boneyard, then it is that the  public expects the" editor to become  a  smooth   liar  and. whitewash  his  benighted soul..  "Next comes the flannel-tongued  scandal monger of the sex feminine,  who has   made   miserable   the lives  of tbe  young  girls   of  the district,  and who has  kept the social circles  of the town   in  hot water for years.  She   becomes   an angel   in   the columns of  the   local   news   sheet the  moment death paralyzes her and the  circles  of the  other  world become  the scene of her pernicious activity.  "A preacher may be an  ordinary  pulpit  poundep- and  a  bore   to the  community, but every time he talks,  the editor must rise to the occasion,  and never fail to write that his sermons   'are     musically     deep    and  dramatically interesting.'  "Every 'dinky' entertainment  must be grand, every schoolma'am  proficient and every city father religiously perfect, every new comer  a valuable acquisition to society;  the climate most delightful, the men  the most public-spirited in the province, or else the paper is not worth  reading and'the editor too slow.  If an editor fails to conform to  these standards of public deception  and downright lying he will not  have a friend- in town, and yet the  people howl persistently for a purer  Uniform Naturalization Laws  Incredible as  it may   seem to the  ordinary   man   in   the   street,    the  British government does not recognize  the    Canadian    naturalization  laws,   and  on   the   other hand  the  Canadian government turns  a blind  eye on  the naturalization   laws  of  Great Britain.     This is a ridiculous  state of affairs,   and   everyone will  be glad to  learn that at present important negotiations with   a view to  securing    uniformity   in   the   laws  covering- such matters are now proceeding  between   the  two governments.'--  The.. law   of   England   requires  a   residence   of   five   years  before!    naturalization    is   granted,  while   in    this  country  the   period  of residence required is three years.  It   is    rumored     that   the   British  Colonial  office  considers  the   three  year  standard   of   qualification    as  much   too  cheap   for, the  privilege  granted, and it is now thought that  a satisfactory settlement   will be ar  rived at on the British basis.

Mr.  Clements, who is a nominee of the  late Laurier government, is being  sued by "the Dominion department  of justice for the recovery of excess  travelling fees, alleged to have been  charged by the judge. It is claimed  that while in residence at Vancouver he put in bills and was paid for  constant trips from Grand Forks to  that city.

It  is felt that it is not known in London just how much development is  taking place on the Pacific coast,  and the premier will no doubt point  out how substantial progress is in  this part of Canada.  Now that there is more white  labor available in this province, the  subject of Oriental exclusion is being widely discussed. At present  Chinese can enter Canada on payment of $500 each, while Japanese  come here under certain restrictions  imposed by their own government.  Some time ago, the Duncan board  of trade proposed that legislation be  enacted something along the lines  of similar laws in Canada, that  Asiatic races   should   not  hold land  The repeated rumors to the effect  that a general election might take  place within a few months, have  been effectually laid to rest by the  Hon. Louis Coderre, secretary of  state for the Dominion, who in a  speech recently delivered at Vancouver, pointed out the injustice  that such an election would be to  the people of the west. The minister emphatically stated that no  election wtes at all possible before a  redistribution of seats has taken  place.
