Frederick Awarded 14  Blue Ribbons���2 Shows  Yield 23 Prizes.  B. C. Mining  Following' closely on his capture  of nine prizes at Ihe Vancouver Exhibition,   Fred   Frederick   has  now-  been informed of the further success  of his   fine  exhibit of Rhode Island  "Whites  at the Spokane" Interstate  Fair.    This  latter triumph is even  more remarkable  than the'showing  made by-the birds at Vancouver, in  view of the fact that Washington is  now  a centre  for  breeders of this  particular species  of fowl and con-  "sequently the competition must have  been exceptionally keen.     Fourteen  prizes in   all were   awarded   him by  the American judges, one  of whom  is  a  famous  breeder  of the   R.I.  Whites in the  east.    The consignment from   Phoenix  numbered thirteen, and   fourteen   prizes   went   to  them, the  following  being  the list:  First, second,  third, and  fourth for  cockerel; first, second, third, fourth  and fifth for pullet; a first and second  for a pen of four pullets and a-cockerel; and three special prizes offered  by the Rhode  Island White Club of  America for the  best pullet, cockerel   and   young   pen   at    the   show,  which worked out at fourteen prizes  for the total exhibit of thirteen bird.*-;.  It is claimed for the Rhode Island  White that the bird matures rapidly;  is a good layer, wilh a projpensity to  lay in the winter, and is nocsb liable  to disease. 'Its   weight   is   another  recommendation and, with its white  flesh,    makes    it'  about   the   best  p'.    ' ^  general utility -fowl- -in existence  today. The standard 'weight for  the full-grown .rooster and hen is  8}4 and 6}4 pounds respectively,  7^Ibs for the cockerel* and ~5Ibs for  the pullet. *~  Mr. O'Farrell has just completed a  tour of the Kootenay mining camps  in the interest of the Canadian Pacific whose plans for the quick development of the metal mining industry  he is engaged in advancing.

The meeting takes place on October  Sth.

An astounding social problem has
been brought  to  light by Sergeant
Hood  of the Vancouver police department, who  is   in  charge of the
registration  of alien enemies.    The
sergeant in the course  of his duties
finds it   necessary to   enquire   if the
person who may be held   as a prisoner of war is married or otherwise,
and through  this means has discovered   that   there  are   a   number of
alien   enemy  couples living  in   the
city who   are  under the impression
that  the   purchase    of a   marriage
license gives  them   the   legal status
of married people, without a visit to
a clergyman.     Instances are quoted
where   the   couples    have   been   so
"married" for a considerable time,
firmly  believing  that  the payment

"I think it is possible that you do
not, all of you,' realize that if we
had retired on the evening of April
22nd, when our allies fell back before the gas, and left our left flank
quite open, the whole of the 27th
and 28th divisions would probably
have been cut off, certainly they
woujd not have been able to take a
single gun" or vehicle away with
.them, and probably not more than
half the infantry.
"That is what our commander-in-
.chief meant when he telegraphed
that "the Canadians saved the situation. " My lads, if ever men had a
right to be proud in this world, you
"I know my military history pretty well, and   I   cannot think of any
instance, especially when the cleverness and  determination  ofthe enemy is taken into account,   in which
troops were  placed in such a difficult position, nor  can I think of an
instance in which so much depended
on the standing fast of one division.

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 rnineraliferous, 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.       J   .'  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  j^best equipped free gold properties in the west, a not inconsiderable asset in these days  lipf 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, and  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  ofthe 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 prove aTrevelation to the stranger.      The highways throughout the Boundary makes this section of the province the motorists paradise, millions having been  spent on the construction of government roads.  No locality is better  served  with* railroads  than   the  Boundary district.      At  present this section  is ���* served  by  two of the-* greatest systems on the continent, the  1 C. .P..
