SILVER NEAR BANFF BY A TOUCH OF HIS FOOT Calgary, .Tan. 14.-Thirty years ago a lone miner prospecting on the north side of Eldon S'ding, six miles west of Mount Castle, in a location now included in the Rocky Mountain Park, staked out what he thought was a rich vein of silver. The find attracted some 2,000 people, who formed a raining town, that was named Silver City, but the find did not pan out as had been anticipated, and m'nlng engineers gave their opinion that there was not enougH silver in the vicinity to guarantee that a rich mine had been struck, so Silver City melted away like the mists of the mountains, and men forgot that there had ever been such a place, except a few old proBpectoijs. Property of Calgary Co. In time, what had once been Silver City passed Into the possession of the Calgary Copper, Limited, which had bought mimng property In that locality in which the old claim was included, though at that time the owners.of the O. C, Ltd., did not know it. After prospecting for three years the new company developed a magn;ficent copper showing, which realized the expectation of the management, but better, luck was ahead. One day some weaks agoone of the company's miners, an old..timer known as Mfchacl Penrose, v/ho had prospected the hills for-some quarter of a century, was prospecting along a blind trail, when his foot dislocated a mam-, moth piece of rock some 20 feet high, which slid down the mountain, leaving on the face of the rock where it had broken off a surface of tiny silvery threads that made the old miner's heart jump into his mouth.

Jan. 13.--Sir William Roid, head of the Held Newfoundland railway, was arrested Here today on a charge of criminal libel made by William Coakor, a member of the new Lloyd Ministry and president of the Fishermen's association. The action was taken by Coaker as the result of the publication of a letter from Sir' William to Lord ShaughneSsy, of Montreal, stating that Coaker went to Ottawa early in 1916 to be posted on matters of the proposed confederation of Newfoundland with the Dominion of Canada. When there, Sir. William's letter stated, Coaker was introduced to Sir Robert Borden, the premier; Sir Wilfrid Laurier, formerly premier, and other Cajiadlan political leaders, as an outcome of negotiations for the proposed confederation -alleged to have been initiated by L#ord Shaughnessy and finalized by Sir William Held. Inasmuch as the subject of a proposed confederation between Newfoundland and Canada has aroused bitter controversy in this colony, sensational developments are expected. AT STARLAND Winsome little Vivian Martin, star of "Little Miss Optimist," a Paramount I Picture which will be shown tonight and tomorrow at Starland, was born near Grand Rapids, Mich. At the age cf aix she. was playing with Richard Mansfield in "Cyrano de Bergerac" by Edmond Rostand. Possibly it was this early start and the unprecedented success which has followed it that has made her one of the happiest and most optimistic stars of the screen- possibly it was the fact that she was herself-Just adorable Vivian Martin. At any rate, the critics agree that "Little Miss Optimist/' her latest Paramount picture, is well named. She says that she was "starring" in a Sunday school concert; wearing a starched and be-ruffled dress and receiving the unqualified approval of all present, not excepting her small self. Suddenly her mother burst into the room and unceremoniously swept the small star out, announcing confusedly that "Charles Frohman had sent for her." Personally, Miss Martin admits, she would far rather/ have stayed and finished the "piece."
