No trouble to  show goods.  Some time since Mining Science  made a prophetic suggestion as to the  possibility, if Europe was well prospected in,modern days, witlv modern  knowledge and appliances, whether  many more ore deposits and mines  might not be found there than at present known. The geology of Europe  is-quite favorable to the occurrence of  mineral veins. It abounds in old  volcanic eruptions and in igneous and  other rocks likely for ore, .though it  has often been, observed that geology  ical conditions in a region may be all  that could be theoretically desired, yet  the ores may be absent or not in. available quantity.  Ih a recent article by Mr. Etienne  Ritter in one of our contemporaries  on the rediscovery of some important  gold mines in France, a country that  for centuries produced no gold, though  in the ancient Roman period it was  the. main source of that metal, our  surmises seem confirmed. Three old  gold mines, were .lately rediscovered  that yielded in 1908 the handsome  product of $1,200,000. The ground  where these mines were rediscovered  was in a thorougly settled country  where no gold had been extracted for  several centuries, where all the ground  is held by "private ownership and intensely cultivated, where the existence  of veins was known and their outcrops, while largely obliterated by  centuries of cultivation of the soil  over them, were yet apparent but  neglected by many generations. Since  Julius Caesar's time,wben Gaul, now  France, was the great- gold producer,  it was supposed that all the gold veins  worthy of prospecting had been fully  exploited and it was useless to develop  veins left as worthless by centuries of  mining exploitation. During the seventeenth, eighteenth and nineteenth  centuries France produced no gold,  "until five years ago some enterprising  engineers decided to test the theory,  and to prospect some good looking  veins with the result of a rich reward.  The La Balliere mine was rediscovered by a gentleman when walking on the estate of a friend noticing  an old opening, partly covered by  brush and supposed to be an old well  that had been filled in. On opening  it the remains of an old shaft of a  Roman mine were found, together  with particles of gold-bearing arsenic-  sulphide. Vigorous prospecting followed, rewarded by the discovery of  a rich mine.. Such discoveries in an  old country may stimulate people in  this country to overhaul some of their  old and long-abandoned camps.���  Mining Science.-  THE WINNIPEG FAIR  The cleanest game of hockey ever  put on Greenwood skatiny* rink was  witnessed on Wednesday night by a  large crowd, when the local hockey  team met the Grand Forks boys and,  after a highly exciting grime, won by  three goals to one.  Greenwood played in ��� magnificent  style from the start, pressing their opponents throughout a fast and splendid game. For the first hal f, in spite  of many good shots by the Greenwood team and several good runs  made by Grand Forks, no score was  made.  In the second half, 7 minutes after  the game recommenced, W. Baker  scored for Grand Forks. A minute  later J. McDonald, whose work  throughout was most excellent, scored  for the home team.  Both teams decided to play the tie  off at once, and for five minutes each  way. In the first five minutes there  was no score.,. The extraordinary  prowess of- the Grand Forks goal  keeper made many a good shot by  Greenwood ineffective. The last  five minutes' play was perhaps the  best of th�� evening, and it took three  minutes of continual siege of the  Grand Forks goal to score the second  time for Greenwood, made by Ed  Broomfield. The last goal was scored,  20 minutes before time was called,  by^George Clerf, after a dazzling run  down the rink. It was a great victory.  The Grand Forks team are even  stronger than they were last year and  showed excellent form, but the spirited coaching of J McDonald held  Greenwood together, and the town is  proud of her boys in yellow and black.  The line up was the same as at  Phoenix.  The game was most ably refereed  by E. G.Warren, an old time hockey  player and enthusiast.  Last Sunday afternoon, id spite  of the bitterly cold weather, many  of those interested in the capital  work being done by Captain R. G.  j Hargreaves with his Boy Scouts,  '. were on Kimberley avenue to witness an emergency call tor first  aid which was given by one of  tbe scouts. Almost immediately  the scouts, by well organized signaling from the scene of tne  supposed accident to others stationed at various points and at  the Scouts barracks, in a few  minutes were hurrying to ��he  injured, and after applying the  necessary bandages, the unfortunate was carried comfortably  and securely on a hand sleigh to  headquarters. The Boys are  learning good useful lessons under Captain Hargreaves and are  to be congratulated on their good  work.  SEVERAL DEALS  CONCLUDED  ROCK CREEK NEWS  GREENWOOD VS. PHOENIX  The Consolidated Mining and  Smelting Co., of Canada, one of the  strongest mining companies in the  Dominion, who operate the Sullivan  group, the St. Eugene at Moyie, the  Trail Smelter, the Le Roi Two and  other Rossland mines, the Snowshoe  mine at Phoenix, -and the No. 7 at  Boundary Falls, paid out ��22,000 on  Saturday last on account of the many  claims recently acquired adjoining the  latter property. George Cook, F.  Burbank and Dan Buchanan received  $3,000 for the Black Jack. D. A.  MacDonald and Ed Lewis received  $3,000 for the Caberfae Fraction.  A substantial- payment was . made on  the No. 7 bond. Much activity is  expected in Central camp this spring.  KILLED AT PHOENIX  WILL DRIVE  A TUNNEL  C. C. Bartholomew, a Boundary  pioneer and the owner of the  Combination mine at the north  end of town, has returned to  Greenwood aft-*r an absence of  several years. It is Mr. Birtbol-  omew's intention to drive a tunnel  uader the Cimbi nation hill to  catch the rich gold-silver lead  which was proved years ago by  shaft and. drilt. This property  is a very valuable one and much  is expected from tbe work planned.  THE DAILY NEWS  With the report of the delegation from the Exposition committee that.went east to confer with  Sir Wilfrid Laurier and ' his colleagues of the Dominion government upon imposition matters,  the affairs of Canada's International Exposition have taken on  a new and distinctly encouraging  aspect Tbis report sets forth  that conferences which followed  general presentation of the Exposition case to the government,  made tbe matter clearer to Sir  Wilfrid Laurier and his cabinet  associates than it'was possible to  do at the general meeting and  that Sir Wilfrid, already strongly  disposed to favor the Exposition,  made the proposition that the Dominion government will give dollar for dollar for the money that  is raised by the Exposition committee.  The opening hockey match of  the season took place at the skating rink at Phoenix on New  Years day, between Greenwood  and Phoenix teams. The game  started at 8 o'clock and was fast  and furious all tbe time, The  players were most evenly matched  throughout. The Greenwood  line up was as follows: W. Watson, goal; C. Russell, point; J.  McDonald, cover point; Howard  Cameron, right wing; J. J.  Rochon, left wing; Ed. Bloomfield, rover; and George Clerf,  centre. The official score at the  close of the game was Greenwood  4. Phoenix 3. A fifth goal for  Greenwood was disallowed by the  referee, Jim Church whose judgement was most fair throughout  the entire game. Many Greenwood people drove to Phoenix to  witness the game and considerably encouraged the local team  by their hearty rooting and persistent cheering. The victory  was a most welcome season  starter and promises well  for the  chances of winning the Boundary  pennant.  FROZEN TIGHT  ���   I. Crawford has completed  his  new store.  D. R.

The j.'��*uple of Greeuwood cannot complain of the iaitial appearance of 1910. The home  hockey team defeated tbe Phoenix boys, tbe home curling rinks  beat the Phoenicians on New  Year's Ddy. Everyone we have  met had a first-class turkey dinner. The mines are working ta  the limit, the smelter is tearing  the values out of two thousand  tons of rock every dav. Peace  and plenty abound in the Boundary, the weather is not as cold as  it might be, everything progresses and the best is not yet.  THE BOARD OF TRADE  Witli the advent of the New  Year it certainly behooves the  Greenwood Board of Trade to get  busv, hold a meeting and decide  to do something to boost this  town. Other towns, such a*  Prince Rupert, are circulating  good local literature, giving the*  statistics for employment and particulars  of   suitable location  for  The principal attraction of a  winter in British Columbia is the  abundance of good, healthy sport  for young and old. The clear,  frosty air brings color to the  palest cheek, the weakest frame  is strengthened by the invigorating atmosphere, especially in the  snow-clad mountain districts,  where skating, curling, ski-ing  and King Hockey reign supreme.  What could be a more inspiring,  healthful sport than coasting  down some steep snow-cushioned  incline with the excitement of a  possible upset at its base into a  deep bank of feather-like softness, with a long pull back to the  starting point and a bright-eyed  companion to help on tha up hill  climb? For the less energetic,  sleighing was especially invented  to suit even the most lazy, behind  a superbly fiery team, with the  sleigh bells ringing out a sweet-  toned warning to approaching  fellow travelers. This is the  ideal- winter transport, and is,  under the common or garden  every day conditions, as harmless  as it is amusing. Oaly when the  occupants of tbesleigb, overcome  with the cares and worries of this  mundane Bphere become o'er powered with sleep, do things out of  bhe ordinary happen, and then  what is otherwise an inexpensive  healthy attractive sport becomes  a dear dread danger. Things  will happen in the best regulated  sleighs drawn by the best regulated chargers, and the unwary  wake to find themselves entangled  in torn buffalo robes, and the  team and sleich gone their way  unchecked to perdition. Accidents will happen, no sport is  free from a few, even curlers lose  their heads, hockey players their  reputations, and skaters their  season tickets, but saddest of all  are the annual run-aways when  drivers lose their means of locomotion and the sleighers become  the slain.  EDITORIAL COMMENT  We  don't  mind 20 degrees below zero.    We like it���like death.  Greenwood won out at Phoenix  in the opening hockey match of  the season on New Year's day,  and Greenwood curlers likewise  put it all over the Phoenicians.

A dispatch from Los Angeles  states that Charles E. Race, formerly editor of the Miner, was  blown to atoms by a premature  blast in a mine he was developing in Durango, Mexico. Details of the tragic event are  meagre.  Mr. Race lived on the Pacific  slope for about 22 years. In  1888-90 he was employed on the  Tacoma Globe', of Tacoma,  Wash., as its city editor. In  1892 he went to Victoria from  Tacoma and prospected in the  northern portion of Vancouver  island for a syndicate made up of  capital city men. Shortly afterwards he came to the Kootenays,  and, with others, acquired the  Heber group and other properties  in the Slocan. In 1885 he abandoned mining and returned to the  newspaper business, and for a  year or two was editor of the  Nelson News. In 1897 he became the editor of the Rossland  Miner, which position he held  for about two years. Then he  embarked in tbe brokerage business with Ernest Kennedy and  Edward Cronyn, in this city. This  co-partnership only lasted tor a  short time and, after its dissolution, Mr. Race continued to speculate and promote till 1903, when  he again took the editorship of  tbe Miner, which position he held  till November, 1905, when he left  for Victoria, where he resided for  about two years. In 1907 he left  tor Los Angeles, where he has  been engaged in promoting mining and other enterprises. Several months since he married a  lady of considerable wealth, a  resident of Los Angeles. Mr.  Race could not resist the lure of  mining, and, becoming interested  in a Durango property, was engaged in developing it when he  met his death.  Mr. Race was a native of Norwich, England, and was sent to  Minnesota by his father to become a farmer, but soon abandoned that life to become a journalist, The deceased was a fine  writer and an eloquent speaker  and remarkably bright in many  ways. He was a man who had  decided opinions and made warm  friends as well as decided enemies.  He had many strong friends in  the Kootenays who will learn of  his tragic death with deep regret  ���Rossland Miner.  aasmam  ms  Sfi  ss  B. C GYROSCOPE RY.  Work has already been started in  the Okanagan valley on the construction of the first gyroscope railway in  America, to be devoted to commercial transportation purposes. The  line of railway wHI encircle Okanagan lake, touching all points on the  shores of that large body of water.  Spur tracks will be run to any nearby  point where possible business justifies  such extensions, or rather a spur track  will be laid to every such point, for  on the gyroscope railway the coaches  run on a single rail.  Construction has been started at  Okanagan Landing, at the head of  the lake, according to a statement  made today by a New Westminster  business man who has just returned  from Vernon. While in the Okanagan he viewed the start of operations  and it is the intention of the building  company to push construction so that  the line may be ready for business  during the corning summer.  The strong point about gyroscope  railways is the low cost of construction as compared with double track  steam or electric lines, but a single  rail having to be laid and there being  no necessity to take even steep grades  into consideration���grades being eaten  up by the gyroscope as* easily as its  equilibrium is kept on a single band  of steel track.  Another feature in favor of the  gyroscope is the high speed wich may  be maintained, it being declared that  70 miles an hour can be kept up as  easily as 30.���Province.

A  NON-PERSONAL  LIABILITY  Now running a tunnel Qn 200 feet)  under valuable claims adjoining  Greenwood  Townsite  on  Skylark Mountain,  Prominent among the advances recently made by individual  companies  is that  of the  Granby   Consolidated  Mining, Smelting & Power company,  with a large group  of mines  situated  in Phoenix camp, Boundary  district,  and smelting works at Grand   Forks,  in the  same  district.    Attention was  drawn in a recent review to the substantial  improvements  and additions  to the plant made at this   company's  several properties, but the full effect  of the enlargement of operating facilities on production  and  reduction of  ores had not by then been made manifest.    Now this is plainly  evident to  the  visitor  to  the mines and works,  much more so than to those who see  only the printed record of the progress  made.    At the mines there  are four  active working outlets through which  It  is   practicable  to  deliver  a   large  quantity  of ore,   much  greater than  there is present smelting capacity for.  That this is so will be realized when  it is mentioned_that these  outlets are  all so equipped that through  any two  of them  there  can  be  handled and  shipped a tonnage of ore equal to the  full treatment capacity of the smelter.  In passing it may  be  mentioned that  the Granby company'sore production  for  the  year   1909  will be found to  have exceeded 1,000,000 tons, which  will be a record  for any metalliferous  mining company operating in   British  Columbia.  While the tonnage of ore produced  from the mines of the British Columbia Copper company is not nearly so  large as that from those of the Granby, the former company is contributing materially to the advancement of  the  district,   not  only  by continuing  COMPANY,   LTD.  FIFTY  THOUSAND  SHARES  Of the capital stock of this Company are offered for sale at  25 Cents Per Share, $1.00 Par  To provide funds for the development of its coal properties near Midway.  The company owns the coal rights of 2,4b8 acres of land and has options on  three square miles additional. Work has been done in development continuously since  September 2, and a tunnel is now being driven to cross-cut three seams which show on  the surface. Coal can be delivered from the mouth of this tunnel to the C. P. R.  tracks below by gravity.  Development work done thus far is as follows:  One prospecting tunnel on the surface of the seam, 50 feet in length.  One shaft and drifts, about 45 feet, all in the coal seam.  One shaft and incline, following the proven seam to the depth of 80 feet.  An analysis of the surface coal returns 66 per cent carbon and only 3 percent ash.  The Company owns other properties, including fruit lands, mineral claims,  options on mineral claims, mines and timber limits. Its coal holdings alone are  considered worth more than its issued capital stork. An investment in this stock at  the present price should be immensely productive.  This is an opportunity of which you should take advantage without delay.
