the extra high water put the compres-
sor out of husiness for a tlmo, so that.
the work of pushing the main tunnel
had to be abandoned for a short time:
this trouble was rectified, n new wag-.
on road built, new hunk house erected '
and many other Improvements Inaugurated, so thut now it Is a well equip-
ped mine with a great many years of!
ore reserves established, There are
over -00 men on the pay list at present
and the force is being increased as .
fast us possible.
The St. Marys country did not
receive the attention that it deserves;
tiie want of transportation evidently
militating against its progress; the;
p-iytneers who have examined one on
two of the properties liave signified
their intention of returning and one :
property wus taken up under bond'
and is turning out fairly well. This
ls the Park Group at Marysville.
Some interest was taken in Perry'
Creek, the free milling gold quartz
camp, but the results were somewhat
disappointing; this, of course, Is uot
to be wondered at as properties of,

North of Elko is situated tho Burton Oroup, which is being developed
by Mr. A. T. Caldwell and from which
two car loads of ore iiave heen shipped with satisfactory results; this is
a copper property aud should become
a. consistent shipper.
The Qunntrell property on the North

loads of ore with good results. This
is a clear, silver lead ore and as such
Is in great demand at smelters; the
development work Is shewing up well
and it is hoped tn Include this property in  the list  of regular shippers.
Tho Stemwinder property between
the North Star and Sullivan properties
has been the subject ot an examination for the Federal Mining & Smelting Company and report* says that
the examination was entirely snlis-
factory; the taking over of this property by such a company ns the Federal would certainly be an item of
moment, us the ore being apparently
too low grade to ship. Is In sueh quantity as to warrant the erection of a
mill or concentrator, e. highly advantageous ncsct to the community.
The Moyie district has been very
quiet; tho St. Eugene has shipped
under lcare a few hundred tons of ore.

| It. was ii good game of hockey Saturday night between Kimberley and
Cranhrook   aud   spectators   got  their
\,money's worth. Tie- Kimberley lads
are a husky bunch Imt an* handicapped by tbe fact of having only a small
open-air rink lo practice upon, hut des-
pite that tbey put up a lUmnious game
and nt no time allowed the local hoys
j to take it easy. The game resulted In
a win by Crnnbrook with a margin of
; eight lo four, one goal by Kimberley
i going through the nets, aud not hav-

Tiie game was remarkably free from
roughness, only one player being
penalized, though one of the Kimberley players was guilty of very unsportsmanlike conduct iu slashing an

The Paris!. Hall was crowded to its
capacity tn Tuesday afternoon when
the Women's Jnjiiic • held their reg-
u ,ir meeting Incidentally -ecuring a
star attraction in the person of Mist
Beatrice Brlgden, A. s. C. E. Over a
hundred ladies were present at tbe
opening when the Maple Leaf wus
sung, Mrs. lra Manning kindly acting
as pianist for tlio day. Subsequent to
tin* business part muny others came
and In all 175 were present, 37 new
members joining the Institute. Printed programmes of the yeur's work
were distributed and with the membership standing already at 107 a very
active and successful year is anticipated. After the disposal of ihe minutes and other business two resolutions were put through to be submitted
to the local M. I' .1'. iu order to urge
liis Influence upon the subjects.
Tho resolutlona were as follows:*
(a) Resolved: That we, the Women's.
Institute, of Craubrook. B. C, do urge
the Provincial Government to remove
the present unjust disabilities under
which the British Columbia mother
suffers In regard lo the guardianship
of her child. And. to further enact
such laws as will place both parents
upon an equality us to rights, powers,
duties, and responsibilities in regard
to tbeir minor children.
(b) Resolved: That we do urge for
a law to be enacted to provide for tho
maintenance of sick :*r indigent persons by their nenr relatives,
Both resolutions were curried hy a
lurge majority there being not one dissentient. On account of so large a
concourse of mothers a visitors' vote
was taken apart from members and the
results were: Visitors 64— Members
A vote of thanks was passed to Mra.
R. W. Russell for her untiring energy
in promoting and superintending the
library movement for the past two and
a half years. The President regretted
the loss to the Institute of Mrs. Russell, who is shortly leaving for Maclcod. Mrs. Sarvis handed in $4.00
sale of cook books ami members were
reminded tiiere are still a number on
hand the entire proceeds of which will
be devoted to patriotic work. Eight
pnir of socks were also contributed
during the afternoon. Immediately
after tlo* business Mrs, Thos. Key-
worth relieved tlie pressure with a
splendid solo in vivacious style entitled "Rest Old Flag On Earth."
In  introducing  Miss  Rrigden, Mrs.
McFarlane expressed her great pleus-
uro at being able to secure such an
eloquent and engnging lady for that
afternoon.    Miss Brigden who occupied tlie stage for an hour held her
audience  with   every  word  and   the
subject she dealt with in so masterly
a fashion, "Life's Story." for mothers,
must   have    solved  many    problems
1 which continually harass a maternal
' mind  regarding  ber  children.    The
; beauty  of  expression   and   purity  of
I thought as expounded by Miss Brlgden
I upon such a difficult subject for which
; mothers are responsible could not but
; fail to impress ber hearers how ter-
! rlhly sacred is the human body, the
■ temple of God's wonderful Spirit.
I    At the conclusion of the address Mrs
Shaw moved and Mrs  Beech seconded
| a very hearty vote of thanks to be es-
j tended   to  Miss   Brlgden   which   wns
1 unanimously    given.      Refreshments
I were then served and a short discus-
I sion followed upon arrangements for

ipreclnbly greater Ihan before, tho'
ia to be expected thut the Huns may

ite naturally the British admiralty
as inumi us n clam us to thc mcth-
s ihey are using to cope with the
binurlnes, and give no announce'

iyed or captured, one thing is cer-
n that the Hritish watch-dog has
L been caught napping.
At long last the patience of President
Wilson and the American nation has
reached the breaking point with Ger
many, end when Germany served notico of it:; intention to wago rilthle.su
submarine warfare regardless of cou-
equeiiee. President Wilson took tlie
miiy course open to bim to preserve
th<* dignity of the United States ns a
world nation by severing diplomatic
relations with Germany.
The severance of diplomatic relic
lions iu Itcolf is not an net of war but
an net of protest though it is generally
recognized *as the preliminary
to a formal declaration of war. Prest
dent Wilson has intimated to Germany
tlint nny injury to an American citizen

war. The president apparently bus
realized the futility of uny reasoning
but armed force in dealing with an

Kor how many ages have women
beeu hampered and inconvenienced by
tho skirts and underskirts of varying
degrees ol' voluiuiiiousuess us dictated
by Dame Fashion, und aro tliey at long
lust to break the chains of fashion and
custom and discard the skirt for something better?
The foregoing tpicstion hus been
raised hy lhe action of thc women
munition workers in tlie old land and
latterly by the women workers in
Canadian munition plants discarding
the skirt nnd donning men's overalls.
it was at tlieir own instigation that
ihey exhibited a desire to take the
places of the men who hud gone to the
war. The women of Kngland are making munitions aud replacing those at
the front iu almost every kind of trade,
uud it is nowadays considered to bo
abreast of the times for the women of
Canada to do a similar work and their
little bit lo help the country iu times
of  need.
A shortage of man labor haB given
the women evejl'y opportunity, and
they have risen to the occuslon. In
the C, P. It. Angus shops at Montreal
the women huve been first wltli the
ambition nf emulating their sisters in
England who are now weurlng ov
ails just like men, and now thoy also
"wear tho breeches." They ure glad
of the change, for the skirts often
hampered their work. The overall
gives them much comfort and him been
tound of considerable convenience,
particularly iu the paint shop. The
overall gives them more confidence in
carrying OUt the work. Witiiout thc
women the Kmpire cannot win tiie
Will the emancipation of women
from skirts be confined to the munition workers or will it extend to women In every wnlk of life. No mere
man will dare to answer that question.

When   the   Prohibition   movement
'. first gained momentum in this prov-
j men tho liquor Interests, alarmed for
■ their monopoly and their profits, pet-
iti .nod the government not to allow
ci i voice of tho electors to be hoard.
This petition  was said to carry the
names of over r.O per cent of the peo-
1 pie of llrltlsh Columbia,   Investigation
t showed It to be n fake petition—an
insult both to the government to whom
it was presented and to the people for
whom It purported to speak.
When the liquor interests saw that,
ii referendum would he taken in spite
of their efforts, they accumulated a
bilgli campaign fund nud flooded tlie
newspaper press of tbe province with
misrepresentation of tlio proponed
measure und personal ubuso of thoss
advocating it, the whole being cloaked
with   a   virulent   mendacity   Hint    no
political campaign could ovor produce,
This unscrupulous proi dure failed.
The people, hy an onormoiiB majority,
decided that Hie Hquor traffic inui I go,
The soldiers iu camp, despite tin trail
tie efforts of the whiskey men to mislead them, accorded u notable percentage of support.
There   remained   the   soldiers   In

the great opportunity! Liberally supplied with nuntey, ready to use it in
any way, troubled by no scruples as to
the legality of their proceeduro, tbe
beneficiaries of tho traffic that is
"worso than the Hun," oxcetted nil
their previous attempts to prevent Unreal will of the citizens being known.
They did not hesitate to prostitute
the soldiers' vote to their own base
ends. Every mother or father who lias
a son at tho front has a right to demand that this shall nol be. And
every soldier has an equal right to
demand punishment for these who by
tbeir lawless methods, liave sought to
render his franchise valueless.

(Calgary Herald)
Germany's declaration that unrestricted naval warfare will be resumed
een Feb. 1st is neit surprising except
as to tin* elate' of its resumption. Such
a move* has heou anticipated tier senue'
time*. Not only Ims It beeu anticipated, but tlm llritisli admiralty lins boon
making arrangements to deal with il
when It came.
In making announcement of their
intention in yesterday's note to President Wilson the German war lords
uso up much space and ninny words
in an effort to justify tholr action. It
must be remembered they ure talking
to the United Statos president, uml it
Is up to that gentleman to make up his
mind as to whether the* excise they
give is legitimate or not. feo far us the
Allies are concerned the position being tuken by Germany is utterly untenable in International law.
It seems tliai the frightful stage of
the war Is about to arrive—tho stage*
when, witli u desperation born of grim
necessity the enemy proposes to burn
all tho bridges behind hlm nnd, like
a murderer driven from inver and at
hay. turn the world inti, u shambles
before hc yields himself m tlio au-
thoritics. Very well; if it must-lee, it
must be. Tiie Allies have known for
long enough that they had to ileal with
an utterly unprincipled foe and they
are ready to tako tlie chance* in dealing with him. Germany is the madman of l-'uruiie' today and to capture
and restrain him wlll bring heavy toll
in human life anil property, but lt
must be* done in the interests of civilization.
And what does President Wilson intend to do. now Unit Germany lins
spoken, and in speaking brushed aside
us mere senilis of paper ull the promises neaele lo the I'nited states government? It looks as if the moment for
final decision hail arrived lor the
president, and that he would now be
forced lo tuke sides witli une belligerent or the other. However, one can
never tell about Mr. Wilson. For all
we can tell, he may iloeltle to face the
Issue by writing another note.

and enjoyable ball last Tuesday evening ut tbe Maple Mall. The affair was

of a Black and White .Novelty Hall.
The costumes, both ladies and gentlemen, were ull of black nnd white,
tiie hostesses being garbed iu black

The hall looked very pretty with black
ami white decorations, and the novel
programs were in themselves a work

In white ink. No pain.*; were spared
to give the guests one of the most delightful evcniiiRs possible, and by appearances they certainly succeeded.
Dancing commenced ut nine-thirty
with supper nt twelve, tables being
laid and a very dainty supper served
Iiy the ladles. The music was supplied
by tlie Kootenay Orchestra, and tho
floor was in splendid condition fur
dancing. About thirty-five couples
were preoont, and everybody being in
black and white it was a pleasing
spectacle. Miss Grundy officiated as,
floor-manager and certainly made a
very capable one, The party broke up
