Grand   Forks,   Phoenix and Greenwood Lodges Represented.  and its benefits are extended not only  to its members, but to their wives and  children, whom they provide for, educate and protect, The three links are  a passport to the stranger in a strange  land, where as one united family they  meet face to face with each other  extending the right hand of true religion which is "brotherly love," which  also is the ideal of all earthly greatness,  It is conceded that the growth of  Oddfellowship in this section is largely  due to the efforts of Fred B. Holmes,  the D.D.G.M. This was evidenced by  the numerous high tributes paid Mr.  'Holmes by the various speakers at  Tuesday's.banquet.-'.":-  On Tuesday evening, the 3rd inst., a  joint installation of Boundary Vailey  lodge, Greenwood; Gateway lodge,  Grand F^rks, and Snowshoe lodge,  Phoenix, was held in the I.O.O.F. hall  Greenwood. D.D.G.M. Fred Holmes,  assisted by the following Grand Lodge  officers: D. Whiteside, Grand Marshall;  W. E. B. Fleming, Grand Warden, W.  Cook, Grand Recording-Secretary; F.  Clark, Grand Financial-Secretary, and  T. R. Powers, Grand Treasurer, after  being received with the customary  honors, installed the following brothers:  Bounday Valley���N.G., W. Elson; V,  G., J. McCreath; R.-S., F. B. Holmes;  F.-S., G. B. Taylor; Warden, H: H.  Huff; Conductor, A. E. Braithwaite; O.  G., E. F. Smith; I.G., H. Falconer, R.  S.N.G., R. J. Saunders; L.S.N.G., A.  Hanson; R.S.V.G., E- Anderson; L.S.  V.G-, D. Hill; R.S.S., J. Roxburgh; L.  S.S., J. Tait.  Snowshoe - "N G, A. S. Williamson;  V*&;'"Th6s: " Johnson;"'R~S, Geo." R."  Mead; Treas, F. McDougal; Warden,J.  Campbell; Q G, W. S��� Cook; L S V G,  J. Mclver; R S S, J. Mclnnis.  Gateway���N G, L. Crossen; Warden,  Alex Hall.  At the close of the proceedings the  members retired to the Windsor cafe  where Bro. Harry Coutts had a sumptuous repast awaiting, consisting of  roast turkey and plum pudding, salads,  fruit, etc. It was generally acknowledged that Bro. Coutts was the right  man in the right place and no doubt  will be visited again both individually  and by the lodge when a first class  foeal or spread is required. After the  tabieshadbeen- cleared-several-ofthe  brothers'spoke respecting the benefits  of Oddfellowship in genaral and encouraged one another to continue the  good work which is rapidly spreading  tothe the four corners of the world and  whose membership total up to nearly a  million and a half.  The lodges are to be congratulated  on the officers selected for their new  term. P'G'Bfo. W. Elson takes the N.  G. chair for the second time. He takes  a great interest in the work, and with  such able talent at the head of affairs  Boundary Valley lodge cannot help but  prosper. Bro. Crossen, the N.G. of  Gateway lodge, Grand Forks is also a  good energetic Oddfellow and the  brothers of Gateway lodge are to be  congratulated on their wise choice.  Bro. Williamson, the N.G. of Snow-  shoes lodge, Phoenix, will not lack in  carrying on the good work-of his predecessors. P.G.'s Bros G. B. lay lor,  E. Foyle Smith, G. R. Mead, W. Cook,  and Bros. H. H. Huff, Thos. Johnson  and Alex Hall are household names in  their various lodges as active members  and whose labors are fully appreciated  and no doubt many of the brothers will  be heard of in the near future as prominent lights of the order.  District No. 20 has under its jurisdiction the three lodges of the Boundary and in its limits has between 600  and 700 Oddfellows. The term just  closed shows a marked progress both  in membership and finances of all the  lodges and the new term promises to  surpass all other records, applications  being booked already some months  ahead.  The doors of Oddfellowship are  opened to all who possess'thc qualifications of good citizens, its aims are the  uplifting of mankind. Friendship,  Love and Truth (the three links of the  order) are the weapdns of  its defence,  THAT HOCKEY TEAM.  Fred Clark, president of the. Grand  Forks hockey club, was a visitor here  this week. Mr. Clark is an enthusias  tic lover of the game and impressed  upon his numerous Greenwood friends  the desirability of organizing a team  here. He had a conference with R. G.  Warren, a veteran plaver, whom, it is  hoped, will line up the boys without  delay. A series of matches with the  Phoenix and Grand Forks teams would  prove interesting as Greenwood has  ample home material to form a fast  sewn. In this connection the Grand  Forks Sun has the following: "The  hockey players of Greenwood contemplate forming a club.. It is hoped they  will do so, and, together with Phoenix  and Grand' Forks teams, a compact  league would be assured, with very  light travelling expenses and the certainty of a very interesting series of  games. Get together, bo'ys, and push  it along."  SKYLARK  A WONDER  Ore Reserves In Sight are  Large.  Output Is Meeting Payroll and Leaving- Big Profits-  The Skylark mine in Skylark camp  has already shipped three carloads of  ore. On the dump are thirty tons,  seventy-five per cent of which is of  No. I grade.  The Skylark has already Justified  the confidence of the Phoenix syndicate which recently acquired it on a  working bond. There is every reason  to believe that the mine, besides meeting the payroll of over $1000 per month  will be paid for out of profits from ore  shipments. The Times man accompanied by W. H. Jeffery, M.E., made  an inspection of the Skylark during  the past, week. Mr, Jeffery could not  restrain his enthusiasm after traversing the various levels and climbing up  the various stopes. "The Skylark,"  said he, "is a bonanza and has large  ore reserves in sight. I look to see the  output doubled at an early date and  anticipate the payment of large dividends."  The incline shaft sunk on the lead  extends to a depth of 120 feet. At the  50-foot level drifts on the vein extend  north and south 50 feet jn either direction; atid at the 80-foot level one drift  runs north 130 feet and south a distance of 70 feet. The.vein, which is  a true fissure, occuring between walls  of pyrociastic greenstone, is fairly-  uniform throughout, in places attaining a width of fifteen inches. Stoping  is now in progress on the 80-foot level.  The work is in charge of Wm. Rowe, a  veteran miner, who is considered an  authority on true fissure veins. The  working force comprises twelve men.  New tubes are being installed in the  boiler ana a week hence will see the  work of sinking the shaft well under  way. An additional depth of 100 feet  ���will more than double the ore reserves  provided the vein maintains ita pres  ent size and thickness. "  TO RESUME  Has  Been    Incorporated  For   $250,000.  8  Directors are- Spokane. Phoenix and  Greenwood Business Men.  The incorporation of the Gold Bug  group, on the west side of Boundary  creek, opposite the Elkhorn mine, is  announced. ��� The capital stock has  been fixed at S250.000 in shares of the  par value of one dollar. Fifty per  cent, of the stock will be placed in the  treasury. The official title of the com- *  pany is the Gold B'ug Mining Co , non-  personal liability.  The first board of directors is as  follows: J. H. Peet and H. V. Fuller,  Spokane; W. Macy, Dr. R. B. Boucher,  Phoenix; Duncan Mcintosh. W. M.  Lav/ and Chas. Kinney, Greenwood.  These officers have Deen elected: President, J. H. Peet; vice-president, W.  Macv; secretary-treasurer, H. V. Fuller;, managing director, Duncan Mcintosh. It is the intension of the  board to offer 40,000 shares of the  capital stock- to ihe public at 20 cen��*s  per share.  Development work will, be started  about the middle of the month. It1 is  proposed to let a contract for the driving of a'300-foot tunnel to crosscut No.  1 lead at depth'. Later on the tunnel  will be extended to tap two additional  veins that outcrop on the surface. The  outlook foi the company is exceedingly  promising as the Gold Bug has a  record of having made a shipment five  or six years ago. The group comprises the Gold Bug and Gold Bug  fraction.  The se'ection of Duncan Mcintosh  as managing director was a happy one  and would indicate that the directors  intend to get results without any  unnecessary delay.  THE ROARIN' GAME.  Greenwood Players Defeat Plioenix  Curlers-  Greenwood won two out of three  games in a friendlj* contest with  Phoenix curlers at the local rink Monday afternoo;i and evening. J. S.  Birnie acted as skip of the Greenwood  team which played against Mr. Crawford's rink. It was a 16-end game.  Mr. Birnie and his associates defeated  the Phoenix visitors by a score of 15 to  8. In tiie evening two 12-end games  were played. The Greenwood skips  were E. W. Bishop and E. G. Warren.  Mr. Bishop's rink also won a victory  over the Plioenix four, skipped by Mr.  McNicol; score 10 '.o 9. Dr. Boucher of  Phoenix attempted to retrieve the fortunes of the visitors. Hi�� rink tried  conclusions with E. G. Warren's rink,  and won by a score of 14 to 11 points.  A return match is being arranged.  Thos Powers and Free! Clark of  Grand Forks inspected the Strath  more mine this week. They were delighted with the property. Mr. Powers  who is a shareholder in the company,  expressed regret that he had not secured a larger block of stock.  A SOCIAL EVENT.  The annual ball of Greenwood lodge,  No. 29, Knights of Pythias, in the  Masonic hall on Monday evening was1  a very successful and enjoyable affair.  There were upwards of sixty couples in  attendance. A noteworthy feature was  the excellent music discoursed by the  city orchestra. At midnight the ladies  St Jude's Episcopal church served a  very recherche supper. The success  of the ball was largely due to the efforts  of the committee on arrangements  composed of N. McLeod, A. D. Hallett  and Chas Dunne.  ' M  1\ BOUNDARy    CREEK   TIMES.  b<  Boundary Creek Tim  =lsswcd-ewcry fridav ''   '  Dun-can Ross Managing Editor  SUBSCRIPTIONS IX ADVANCE.

"The  Old Man," as Mr. Simpson is  familiarly known represents the  best type of pioneer newspaper  men who are rendering a public  service iu making' the possibilities of British Columbia known  to the outside world.  ,; Dr. William Osier, regius  professor of medicine at Oxford  university, in a recent address  before the Canadian club in Toronto made several important observations which cannot be given  too much publicity. . He was  introduced as the Canadian who  had become the first physician  "within the British Empire. Dr.  Osier, who spent many years in  the United States, represents the  highest type of modern culture  and his philosophical reflections  uttered in no narrow spirit,  created a profound impression.  The distinguished physician,  after conceding our marvelous  development, drew attention to  one or two national, perils that  have yet to be reckoned with.  Canada's greatest vice he'delated  was political lying, both by the  press <ind by the individuals.  People of all, shades of opinion  will agrt-e that there.; is much  truth in Dr. Osier's statement  and that political campaigns'in  Canada, especially in the east,  are carried on with a ferocity and  bitterness bordering on savagery.  Let his wise admonitions be  taken to heart. In the Ontario  fight now in progress both parties  are apparently adopting methods  which would shock the politicians  of a generation ago. Dr. Osier  must have had a deep consciousness of the gravLtyof the situa-1  tion from a national standpoint  when he made this true deliverance: ���'.'  "There is only one point to :'which I;  would like to refer, in which this;  country is not in a good state morally.-  There is far too much evil-speaking,;  lying andslandering in connection with  our political life. Now,*'that does seem'  -^to-me-to-be-an-entirely-^unnecessaryj  and superfluous thing,' and it does not  seem right that our young men should  be brought up in this atmosphere,  where there is constantly a feeling of.  hostility and a slandering attitude in  the press towards political. opponents.'  It does no good, and it does a great  deal of harm. Now, it is not adifficult  matter to correct that. If-* the i people  would only set their hearts honestly  against it and throw it down as a positive vice and a very serious vice���I  regard it as a much worse vice than  drunkenness, infinitely worse,-��� taking  a >man's character away, taking it  away as it is often done in the newspapers, without any actual warrant,  without any knowledge of the facts-  it is worse than if a person was actually a drunkard.  "Now, there is only one way to mend  that, and that is a very simple way  indeed. That is, to deal with your political opponents in an ordinary, everyday Christian spirit. Now, it is said  you cannot bring Christianity into  politics. Into a certain type of politics  perhaps you cannot, but at* any rite  you need not call it Christianity. Call  it the ordinary, everyday behavior, if  not of St. Paul's noble Christian, of  Aristotle's true gentleman, and stop  this evil speaking, lying and abuse of  each other in the public press. It does  no gcod, and it does infiuitc harm.  The young men live in an atmosphere  ' which teaches them to distrust their  leaders and teachers, and it produces a  feeling of hostility and distrust of  things political; but where there is as  much mud-slinging and talk as there  is against a political opponent it very  easily passes from the sphere of politics  to other spheres*, and you distrust your  neighbor, and there is a general feeling of unrest, and lack of that harmony  and sympathy and "brotherhood that  we have one towards another as Canadians."  principal market of the British  Columbia sawmill men is the  Northwest into which American  dealers last year dumped over one  hundred and fifty million feet.  This cimpetition is manifestly  uufair in view of the interdependence existing between this province and the territorios. If the  principle of protection to eastern  Canadian industries is conceded,  then why shouldn't one of the  principal industries, of British  Columbia, be entitled to similar  consideration. The condition of  the lumber industry in the West,  on this side of the line' could not  be much worse; every week witnesses the closing down of Canadian mills and the spectacle of  hundreds of Canadian mill hands  thrown out of employment. American competition at this juncture is especially unfair because  the American market is ov,er  stocked and in order to, get rid of  the surplus, prices are quoted at  figures below the cost of production. It is significant that the  Calgary board of trade has -endorsed the. petition of the British  Columbia lumbermen. Surely  a representative body, in a large  consuming centre like Calgary  would not have adopted this  course unless its members were  convinced that higher prices will  not follow, the imposition of a  duty on American rough lumber.  The Canadian lumbermen are  making ? reasonable request in  seeking to preserve the home  market for themselves, especially  when attempts are being made to  dispose "of -the foreign surplus in  Canadajat slaughter prices.

Unfortunately the installation  of power will not be undertaken until  the Cascade company is in a position  to supply the power. At present the  low water in the Kettle river has  greatly hampered the Cascade Power  Co.

The quartette is composed of  four educated and refined young ladies  each -of whom is a trained vocalist.  Their-quartette selections, solos and  duets were all well rendered. Possibly  one .reason why the-concert was so enthusiastically received was that the  young ladies have learned how to  relieve the monotony which pervades  somanj recitals, by yiving numbers  which are of a more -popular order.  They were willing to use their highly  trained voices (and if one was giving  praise on that line, he could do so most  lavishly) in the rendering of selections  that not alone showed wnat they could  do as vocalists but also really entertain their audience. Miss Adeie Davis  in her several readings, completely  won the audience.  numerous physicians, but, found nothing that -didine any good until I tried  Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and  Diarrhoea Remedy, two small bottles  of which entirely cured me and I have  since had no return of the disease."���  Herman Stein, 212 N.
