Prices,  however, have held the advance, ex-,  cept  that  there  has been  a 'slight  decline    in   the   speculative   metal  market in   London.    Consumers as  a rule   have  covered  their  current  requirements, but a few of them are  still short.

But with  the  exception of the fine exercise it afforded them, the  aggregate bag for  Phoenix did not exceed  fifty birds.  Deer hunting has not as yet started  in   earnest,   the knowing ones evidently wailing for the first flurry oT  snow, but   for   all   that.a  couple of  fine bucks   were   brought   down  b}'  Tod Boyce and Percy Pierce, , quite  close to   town.     A   few  encounters  with bears are also reported, but up  lo the   time  of going  to press, the  only one shot was on Monday evening,   when Chas.  Scholander came  across a  couple   of them   on a garbage heap on the Eholt road.  Bears  are reported very  plentiful  all over  the Grand Forks district  this year,  and   within   the last   ten days they  have  been   sighted   at  the   Lucky  Shot   mine,    Marshall'   lake,    both  ends of  the Eholt -road   and in the  bush to the south-west of the town.  The one seen at this  latter locality  was a fine, big black specimen.     It  was located  under somewhat exciting circumstances  by  the employee  of a local dairy ranch who was in the  woods rounding up stray cattle. His  attention was   attracted   to a sound  in the   thick   bush, and   thinking it  was a young heifer strolling around  without a bell, he quickly,dismount  Laid to Rest  The   interment   of   all   that   was  mortal    of little   Gladys 'Wulfruna  May   Pope,   youngest   daughter   of  Mr. and Mrs. R. E.   Pope, formerly  ofThoenix,   took  place  at Merritt,  in the" Nicola   valley,  on Thursday  of last week.    The committal ceremony   was   preceded   by   a   funeral  service in  the Anglican   church, the  vicar, Rev. J. Thompson, officiating  and   preaching   from   a" text  in the  23rd chap, of St. Luke.   The edifice  was filled   with a sorrowing gathering, including representatives of the  local    Masonic    and      Knight*-,    of  Pythias  fraternity,   with  a   number  of members of the Merritt Temple of  Pythian Sisters.     The white  casket  was almost  hidden   from view   by a  profusion   of beautiful  wreaths and  other, floral   tributes   sent by   sympathetic     friends      and     residents,'  among    them   being   a   handsome  floral offering from  the Pythian Sisters of Phoenix   and  a profusion of  others from  the Pythian Sisters and  Masonic   and    Knights   of   Pythias  jo'dges of Merritt.     The   following  is   culled   from   the   report   of   the  funeral by the Merritt Herald:  '-The town's, sympathies go out  to the bereaved family in the awful  loss that has befallen them in the  death pf their little daughter.

Mr.  Harbinson is by no means a stranger in Canada  or the 'United States.  Five years  ago he was actively engaged     in      missionary     work   in  Alberta, afterwards going to Princeton, from which place he was called  to one of the principal Presbyterian  churches     at.

On Saturday of last week, an unknown man deliberately walked out  to the brink of the Horseshoe falls,  at Table rock, Niagara. The water is quite shallow where he was  seen, but to the horror of two lady  tourists who were watching him, he  threw himself over the brink. ���  A  report    was   current    in   the  Crows'  Nest   pass,    recently,   that  the  contract  for  3<? miles of road  from     Hope     to * the    Summit of  Hope mountain  had  been awarded.

In a letter to the Times,  she writes:  "It may or may not have been  necessary to destroy great oliv.e  gardens. Their owners are in many  cases reduced to starvation."  Referring to the burning of the  bazaar at Scutari, she says that it  spelled absolute ruin for numbers of  honest merchants.  "As for the statement that the  Montenegrins committed no depredations. I daily witnessed the ar-  rival of women loaded down with  loot. That I spoke with some and  they boasted of it,'  "As   for    burning  villages,   too,  when I   saw  some  flaming  at   the  beginning of the war, the Montenegrins told  me themselves that they  had burnt them in vengeance.   That  lhejs.utting   off  of  noses and upper  lips was   done   repeatedly I am certain, for I myself saw nine Turks so  mutilated,   and   during   the  twelve  weeks   I   worked   in   the  Montenegrin hospitals,  my  patients  related  to me the details of their exploits in  nose-ciitling.      I have  not-met any  of them who denied the facts.    Most  of  them justified   it,   many boasted  .ibonc it, and told me things so horrible that I trust they were exaggerated."

Unique Tunnel Scheme  In order to facilitate  the driving*  of the 22x30ft. double track C. P. R.  tunnel, over five miles long", through  Rogers pass,   at the  summit o'f the  Selkirks, the  contractors  have  decided to adopt a new method which  will be' watched  with great interest  by the engineering" world.    The expedient consists  of the-boring" of a  parallel   tunnel, 7x8  feet, for virtually the same  length, and from this  tunnel   cross-cuts will be   made at  short" intervals to the site ofthe proposed tunnel,  and   enable  gangs of  men with   machine drills   to attack  the  work  simuttaneously at scores  df  points;  incidentally,  the  "pion  eer" tunnel, as if is called, will also  provide   ventilation, and   for a considerable   time   -it   will   furnish   an  exit in- removing the rock material.  The tunnel, for   the greater part of  its   length   will   be  driven  through  wilh  a   bore,    probably   not much  larger than the pioneer tunnel; later,  iin .addition to the boring from either  approach,* fnachine'ry wiH'rbe' installed at various points" and ,the-workings enlarged to  the size contracted  for.     * *  While passing through the Simpson pass, one of the Alberta gate-  ways-of the Rockies, Jas. Brewster,  came across a tree with the follow-  inscription carved upon it: "G.S.',  I.R., 1481." Mr.' Brewster and  others pronounce the "initials to be  those of Sir George Simpson, governor of the Hudson Bay company,  who, .during that year was on his  famous round-the-world,trip via this  country and Siberia. The initials,  ���M.R." or "J.R." are probably those  of his guide, James Roland.

Saturday, Sept. 20, 1913  J  1  Births Among the Doukhobors  It's no secret after all.    The truth  is  out.      Births   do   actually   take  place in the   Grand Forks Doukho-  bor colony.    The  children   do   not,  evolve   from   a   dried-up  pumpkin,  neither  are   they   despatched   like  day-old   chicks,   per    parcels   post,'  from Russia.    They are  the  homebred article, and  their arrival in the  Doukhobor settlement  seems to be  accompanied by the same inconvenience as  that attending the coming*  of   any   other   ordinary   Canadian  baby.    Peter   Veregin,  the  boss of  the Douks has Jet the cat out of the  bag, and has even rushed into print  about it.     In a letter to the Nelson  Daily News he wants to be enlightened   on a   point  of law,  and asks  "Is it   English   law   for  a  strange  man   to   knock   at a   door where a  sick woman   is  lying  after confinement?"    We presume Pete is referring to the  door ofa residence, and  by -'strange man"  he is alluding1 to  an officer  of the Provincial  police,  who, if armed   with   the  necessary  authority, was   not only empowered  to knock   at the   door,   but also to  burst it  open   and enter.     Besides,  in   view   of the   fact   that   Peter's  people have persistently denied that  given an opportunity with the addition of a fine fat fee, there are lawyers in Canada who are not averse to  a little technical hairsplitting that  would disgrace the court of an  Oriental caliph.- Hon. C. J. Dougherty's action in bundling the degenerate reprobate breakfastless out  of this country might not have been  law, but it certainly savors of clean  justice. It also saves us the degrading spectacle of watching a  man who has framed a series of  laws, demonstrate for the benefit of  a wealthy wastrel, the best way to  violate the spirit of the statute he  was paid to create.  A Bad Imperial Investor  It now seems that  the  late'Lord  Salisbury was anything but the far-  seeing   statesman  his  friends   have  made him   out   to  be.     During his  tenure   of  office   as   prime minister  he was   reponsible   for   a   couple of  colossal bluncleis, which in years to  come will call down   upon his memory   the   bitter   execrations  of  his  countrymen.     He  swapped  the   Island   of Heligoland,   situate  about  36   miles .from   the   mouth  of the  Elbe and 100 miles from Hamburg,  for the  Island of Zanzibar in East  Africa, and   he  also  made the Ger-J  man Emperor a free gift of a large  slice  of South  Africa.     After   this  we will   not  be  surprised   to  hear  that Asquith, in order to accentuate  the friendly relations  with   our American   cousins,   wil!  make  them a  Xmas   box    of the   Bermudas,    or  hand   over  the  Channel  islands to  France  on   the- anniversary  of the  battle of Waterloo.

ELECTRIC LIGHTED  Phoenix, B.C.  any births have taken place among-  them,'how was the officer to, know  that one had actually occurred,  when the event had not been reported to the registrar as required  by.law. The maxim, "An Englishman's house is his castle," only applies to the civil law, and not as in  the case he refers to, which" was  distinctly a criminal matter.  Welsh Nationality  The current issue of '-Wales"  contains an interesting article on  "Welsh Nationality," by Reginald  McKenna, the British Home secretary, and in reading it one is almost  forced to the conclusion that Mr.  McKenna has been sitting at the  feet of Lloyd-George.  ���Every nation,' says the writer,  'depends for its individuality in the  present, on its history in the past.  Wales, by reason of the peculiar  characteristics of her story, has acquired a title to a special identity  beyond that which most nations  could claim. We have seen the  long incessant struggle for independence adorned by great and inspiring names from Boadicea to Owen  Glendower. The struggle failed,  and all hope of territorial independence vanished. Its place was taken by a more intense devotion to  the spiritual side of national life and  to the development of the natural  artistic powers of the race.  "Alone among the Cellic nationalities within the United Kingdom,  Wales has retained her language as  the common tongue of hillside and  home; and more than this, there  has never been a moment in the  history of Wales when the springs  of Welsh, literature have run dry.  In the Middle Ages, the Arthurian  legends inspired the whole literature  of cultured Europe. I am not now  going to prefer a claim that Shakespeare was a Welshman, though  there is authority for saying that  his mother was descended from one  of the princes of South Wales.'  Secretary Bryan's Tour  The German press  is in a cynical  mood over the  lecturing tour of the  American   secretary    of state,   but  after   all    Mr.   Bryan's   method    of  making an  honest dollar, while noti'l  in keeping with.his exalted position,!  is  infinitely    more   honorable   than!  .that   employed     by,   the    poverty- \  stricken   and  pauperized  barons of  the  German  fatherland  who  infest  the    fashionable     centres     of    the  United States, peddling their rotten  crime-stained pedigrees in exchange  for the   money bags of Uncle Sam's  fair daughters.     Mr. Bryan will pay  for   his   grape  juice     cordial   from  money   honestly   earned,    which    is  more than   can be   said   of the indigent Teuton barons, whose expenses  for their wife-hunting trips   are as a  rule defrayed by "obliging" money-  lending Berlin Jews.  d. l.

There is   a  dangerous'  lunatic   at  largejn  the city. -On Tuesday evening,  when tho last of those who had  witnessed tho first performance at the  opera house were leaving, an imbecile,  sitting to the left of the stage, startled  u few by culling out "fire." There was  not the slightest occasion for his action, which if the fit hud taken him a  few minutes sooner, might have been  fraught with the most serious of consequences.     A strong effort should be  made by both police and union to find  out his name.    Fortunately the house  is fitted  with an  extra fire  exit to  the right of the stage, which with the  largo doors leading out near the post-  office and the exercise of a little horse  sense, should empty  the building in  three ininutes.

His picture, entitled  "Men who-Dare," deals with oue of  the greatest questions of the day.
