Curling Originated  Four Hundred Years Ago.
Hurr.iy for tbe curlin' I
Here's tae the eurlin' 1
Hip, hip hurray 1 fnr the game wi
the stanea
Tbe roar and the ring o't,
Tiie ilm,t and tlie ding o't,
The flash and the fling o't,
The sweep and the swing o't,
The glint and the gleam o't,
The scurry and the scream o't;
Tbe whirl, and tbe birl; and the
dirl o' the stanea.
This is tbe sort of music one bears
at the curling rink nightly, when
everything is forgotten in the excitement ot tho game. The Scottish
people regard tbe history of curling
seriously and important in tbe history
of tlie nation. They claim that no
other game sn aptly illustrates tbe
national character or tends so much
to the healthy development of physical
mentol ami suciol qualities. Curling
is over 400 years old, but it was only
about the middle of tbe 18th century
that it became a national game. True,
the dwellers iu the stone age were
curlers, but tho "stanes" in those days
weuld be considered geological specimens today. During the last seventy-
live years curling haB spread among
all English speaking people in climates where the necessary conditions
can bo fuiiud. The great bonspiels
of Scotland draw over 50,000 people
ou the ice, and the interest this year
ic the Auglo-Oanadian matches is
sucli ne to attract speetatnrs from all
parts uf the Empire.
An excellent sermon was preached
to all curlers at Calgary last week by
the Kev. W. G. Fuitune,, chaplain of
the Alberta branch of the Royal
Caledonian Curling Club, 200 curlers
being present. The preacher spoke of
the beneficial inlluences of curliug on
men's lives, and drew a comparison
between the struggle to attain the best
iu life and the effort to attain perfection in curling and other Bimiles,
which at a later date we shall publish
in the Mail-Hkkalu.
In no city in Canada will be seen a
more keen and sportsmanlike interest
taken in the game than in Revelstoke;
moreover, the curling club has done
much to promote the winter sporting
spirit. ■' The Knights of tbe Bcaoni 1
here's to 'em."
Cames played in the local competitions, since our last issue, arc as follows :
Equitable Cup—
McRae 11, Dallas 4.

Only ime game is scheduled lor tonight, Edwards v. Anderson in tbe
Burns, on No. 1 ice.
Revelstoke is likely to be strongly
represented at the Gulden bonspbil
this year, which takes place on Feb
4, 6 aud 0. It is expected that at least
three rinks will be iu attendance, but
the personnel is not yet exactly known.
Those who do go, and who are musically inclined, aie requested to take
tbeir music alung in order to take
part in tbe big banquet wbicb will be
one oi tbe features ul the 'spiel, From
past experience Kevelstoke curlers
knuw that a good time is assured tbem
in (luldfii, and (ur that reason tbe
number ol volunteers lur tins year's
'spiel is particularly large. The curlers
will leave on Wednesday morning in
order to get there in good time.
GliAIOOW, .Ian. 27.—The Canadian
curlers today defeated the Glasgow
province players in a twelve-rink
match at Crossmylotl. Tbe score was
2 111 tO IM.
Active preparations for summer
spurts are already taking place, The
Cricket Club has reorganized on a
splendid basis, and we understand
that lawn tennis will soon be taken
up. There are several new players
this year, who will lie great acquisitions to the club, and it is up to the
men to take a better interest in it this
summer than tbey did last year.
The eleventh annual winter festival
of the Rossland Carnival Aasocistion
will open Feb. 2, with a masquerade
and ball, and cl> se Feb. II, with the
final match lur the hockey champion-
Jsbip of Eastern British Columbia.
At tbe Ky. Y. M. C. A on Wednes
day night latt the road team and the
gymnasium team met in s league
game ol basket ball. Ibe road team
won out by Ibe score ul 24 to I*.
1'iie game was rat ber marred in the
lirst half by rough play, but prompt
measures of the officials Stopped this.
In the second half tbe name was brilliant. The gymnasium team weie
short of Evert Cameron, and bis loss
was keenly felt in the combination of
this learn, who bank on winning all
their games by their superior speed.
Tbe roiid team won out by sheer determination and strength, which bus
always pulled this team out of bad
boles. Next week the Intermediates
team piny the Alerts.
The new buys' quarters in the Ry.
Y. M, C. A, are now taking definite
form and tlie boys expect to have
tbem furnished and lie into them in
another month. Tlie rooms will present a beautiful appearance when
finished, nnd tbe large floor space will
be taken up wilh games suitable to
hoys of all ages. The youngsters are
busy getting the necessary capital together, and have taken a novel way of
securing it. For thia purpose they
have issued stock to cover then mount,
and if you have not bought any, "well,
tbey will find out about it soon and
let you know." Here's to lhe boys,
may tbey have a good time in their
new quarters.
The hockey match on Thursday
night between the City and the C.l'.R.
proved highly interesting, some good
play l.eing put up, Lack of sufficient
practice characterized the players as a
whole Tbe City team proved to be
the better and Stronger team, winning
out with a score of 5 to 1. For the
city Barber, Dickey and Calder made
up a fast forward combination, while
Sawyer and Allum put up a solid defence, Buck making sonio line '-tops
between tbe stakes. The mainstays
ol the 0. P. R, team were Duncan,
Dalglish and Sousci who made several
line rushes towards the enemy's goal,
but were not able to plant tbe puck in
the scoring place. The line up was
us follows :

eti upon lt would be good policy
to construct concrete piers in order
to secure permanency in a river
where scouring and underwash to

In view of these facts we would
suggest that a change be made in

the wooden |iiling be superseded
by concrete. While this fuTther
delay would probaoly preven completion this year, yet lho fact that

Pulp Concessions  by Government are Basely Abused
Apropos of the pulp iud.i-try the
following article which appeared in
the Victoria Week states correctly the
bluff tbat pulp concession holders
hive and are continually putting up
to the government, The.'e concession-
have been "bused time after time, the
agreements made by the parties to
erect pulp mills in consideration of
tbeir conceisiotiB lor large areas of
timber lands being repeatedly broken
aud requests ninde for extensii 11 oi
time, which bave been foolishly
gianted bv tbe government. There
would bave been no harm done il the
agreements bad teen kept, but this
continual bintv of tlie concession
holders, wbo _>re consequently tying
up valuable timber arena, shoiiid be
no longer countenanced, aiid the government shiiiiltl tnke steps to free
these lands from the clutches of unscrupulous parties who are a menace
to the legitimate development of the
public domain. A further instance of
the graft tbe ptil, concessions on the
Skeena river may he mentioned Such
business should lu put a stop to by
the government for such concessions
under such conditions will not be
tolerated by tbe public. Tbe Week
"Some yeara ago, longer than the
Week can remember, but ut any iate
live or six, a concession wns grunted
by tbe Provincial Government for the
establishment of a pulp industry on
Vancouver Island. The details of tlie
concession netd not be r-.eitel here us
tbey are tolerably familiar to every
persou over the nge of ten, in nnd
around the City ol Victoria. Il is
snllicient to buy that the cencestion
carried enormous privileges over a
Urge limber area, wbicli lias now beeu
tied up all these years, and withdrawn
Irom public sale. Also that tbe con.
cession specified thai something substantial iu the shape of milling and
manufacturing should be effected
within two years. Whatever tbe intention ol the promoters may have
been the course which followed waB
the usual one; indeed it is doubtful
whether such concishoos are ever regarded seriously by those wbo obtain
them, tbe main object being to secure
something bearing tbe imprimatur of
a government, wbicli can be prolitably
peddied. . The pulp concession developed into the l^uataino Power and
Pulp Company, ar.d has been peddled,
not only from tbe Atlantic to the
Pacific, but in pretty nearly all the
mirketa of the world, lu its anxiety
ti nffoid every opportunity to the
holders of the concession to "make
good," tbe government bas renewed it
from time; but as nothing but broken-
down deals, and disciedit to the province has eventuated, it was generally
understood that no further extension
would be granted. Indeed it was not
reasonable to look for au extension
after the fiasco of the past, and especially now lhat there numerous buyers
in lhe market who would be glad to
purchase the limits as ordinary timber
sections. S >me of tbe firms, wiih
with whom the l^ualsino Power and
Pulp Company have negotiated for
the sale of the concession looked
rather to make a timber than a pulp
proposition out ol it, snd have gone
the  length   nf  ascertaining, or trying
to   ascertain,   to   what   extent   they
would   be  permitted to dispose of tbe
timber as lumber if ihey incurred the
minimum of expenditure iu  tlie production of pulp.    A week or two ago,
however,   something    startling    hnp-
pemd.    Wiih the meeting ol the local
Legislature close  ui  baud it became
necessary to do something, so wiih a
great  Jourish  of trumpets the daily
preos announced, of course on information   supplied, that tbo property hud
been sold, that capital would  at  once
be forthcoming, that pulp would ne
manufactured, that an important new
industry   would   be   added   to   those
already   IIjurisliing   in   the   province,
and that in Bbort the provisions of the
pulp oonci .-.nuns would at list be complied with.    This  read   very well, and
no do duo.11. if il cuuld have been substantiated   would   have   been   highly
gratifying,   hotli   to the   governmenl,
and   tu   the   public.    But  there aro
several  notable omissions,  especially
iu .tlie   panegyric   which   the   daily
papers   print   ou    the   new   venture.
There is a notable absence ot inllueu-
iiul names, there is no deliuate  statement   as   to   the   amount ol capital
which  has actually   been   subscribed,
and   fiom   information   received  tbe
Week is disposed to believe that the
millions Bpoken  ol  as  available are
slili safely deposited in tbe cash boxes
ol the)  inhabitants  ol  Vancouver Isi
anil from whom t e promoters hope to
extract  them by Ibe aid of a number
of expert  canvassers,   whom tbey arc
seeking to engage  for   the  purpose of
selling stock at six per cent, commission.   Tlie stock ii-  i" be peddled in
the   usual   manner of   the   most in-
signiliccnt stock   proposition, just on
tho same principlo as  that on which
the book agent transacts bis business
—so much down and so much periodically.    The agent ii to get his six per
cent, deposit secured, and the success
of the scheme  is   guaranteed   by the
employment ol an  experienced com
puny promoter "from across the line."
To   such   base   uses   has   the public
domain  been brought  by concession-
mongers in British Columbia.    It will
be interesting to learu what the public thinks abuut it.
