NEW COMPRESSOR  The first car of machinery,  comprising the new Mother Lode  Compressor is at the station, arriving yesterday and will be moved to the compressor station at  mine as soon as the track is cleared of an obstruction, the result of  a miniature landslide. The new  machine is of the R-j.nd-duplex-  compound type, with a capacity  of about 3400 feet of air per minute. It will be furnished with a  new cut-off device by which the  amount of air compressed maybe  closely regulated ; the machine  at 25, 50, 75 or 100 per cent of its  full capacity as required.  The compressor is .furnished  with a cast iron sole plate extending undeT the whole machine ;  ami in general is similiar to gthe  machine installed by the Rand  Co. at the Dominion Copper Co's  Idaho mine, with tbe exception  of being of a larger size.  The first instalment of the shipment is composed of tne main flywheel and shafts. The motor  which is to drive the compressor  arrived at the mine a fortnight  ago and is already partly in place  ST. JUDE'S.  c'*��d&iuY��l������J.  A. Xoaan & Coj  On Suuday morning last just  before the beginning of the regular eleven o'clock service, St.  Jude's church and the burial  grounds connected therewith were  formally set apart and consecrated byjfche Rt. Rev. John Dart,  D.D.,Bishop of New Westminster.  The Bishop preached to large  congregations both morning and  evening and at the evening service special and very excellent  selections of music were rendered  On the second Sunday of each  month, the evening service will  be celebrated in the church here.  The change will take effect on  the 8tb of March.  Bishop Dart arrived on Friday  afternoon and remained until  Monday, the guest of the rector.  SALTWATER :vY PORRIDGE  An. Ontario paper deprecates  the fact that the voting men from  our Atlantic seaboard no longer  care to adyenture their lives going down to the sea in ships but  have sbught yo country, rich as  the Garden of J3deji> whence to���  delve for mocking metal. .But  despite this degeneration, at least  oue rink of the Fisheaters were  able to stand the stress of the  weather against the inhabitants  of the "cent belt," on Saturday  -night last. The weather is said  to have been "wet" and unhealthy  for men so young as we are, so  we defer to our contemporary who  was an active hustler on one of  tlfe rinks. >  His story is that one side ���.of  the score board was decorated  with herrings and-the other side  with small sacks of oatmeal. We  may remind our readers that we  take no responsibility fer the accuracy of his report. He says  that the more sensitive players  fell down badly which must have  been inconvenient for them. He  omits to mention that when they  arose, they wereheardto insist that  they were still ''one of the boys."  He notes that the lady spectators  left early in the game and no  doubt that is true but we guess  shrewdly that his reporter's time  piece has a convenient habit of  stopping at times, and therefore  we refuse to print his time.  Eighteen euds were played and  the musheaters ended three points  on top. The following is. the  score:  It was a well-amused crowd  of  spectators who saw the masquerade   curling   game   last   night.  The disguises were good and the  costumes elaborately worked out.  The impersonations   were   good  and very funny.    The line-up we  took to be as follows:  Eist Ice-  McKay Dill  Fair   .                  P. Hallett  Grier                   McCutcheon  McCreath, sk.    Redpath, sk.  West Ice���  Hawtrey .   Spankie  Trimen     ' Davidson  Bishop Coles  McMynn, sk. Warren, sk.  As an old woman with hodden  grey jacket and old fashioned  golden hair, E. G. Warren, maintained a quiet interested, almost  meditative air which was well  taken.  Hawtrey, as a frisky, jjdarky  girl was very funny. Bishop, as  a clown, was well attired and  took his falls gracefully. .Trimen  appeared as a dainty darky with  straw hat! The Scotch skip's  walk gave him away.  McCreath, as Uncle Sam, Fair  as Southern gentleman in railway  overalls and McKay as an Indian  chief, half civilized, were good.  Jim Grier was dubbed Peck Mac-  Swain, as he bore evidences ot a  good Presbyterian, a tramp printer, and a clergvman. Dill was  a saucy black Dinah, P. Hallett  a blushing blonde, H. McCutcheon  a demure old ladv, delicately "attentive. tc-her��ski-?-ts-attd the size  of her feet, and skip Redpath a  vivacious and well ' appearing  woman. Spankie ��was an eastern  doctor armed with an instrument  of death and enrobed in loose  white pantaloons, Coles, almost  a Quaker woman and Davidson a  riotous darkey woman of - whom  we are forbidden to speak. While  McMynn bore evidences of the  land of the heather, s Even Father Edwin Hallett lost track of  his boys and couldn't penetrate  their diguises. The whole thing  provided a good time for the  for the players and their friends  and ought to be repeated every  year. . ��� ���   ������  C.P.R.

Moss, resident engineer  of the C.P.R., was in Greenwood  Wednesday and Thursday in company with J. A. Macdonnell and  C. S. Gzowski, contractors of  Vancouver. * Together they went  over the proposed grading on the  Mother Lode branch of the C.P.R  where a new grade will be made  about there quarters of a mile in  length, so as to eliminate the  two lower trestles.  Mr, Moss stated to The Times  that be expected work would be  started on the grade within two  or three weeks. About 40 men  will be -required on the work  which will mean an expenditure  of from' $25,000 to $30,000. It  will take probably from two to  three months te*complete the  work. When finished, there will  not be much difference in the  grade to the Mother Lode while  the curvature will be greatly lessened.  The C.P.R. haye been filling  iu the trestles in seven places between Greenwood and Castlegar.  Eventually these will all be filled.  In the trestle at Cascade, about  400,000 cubic yards of filline has  been put in the trestle but 1he  work is now nearly done and itis  expected will be etitrr-eiy completed within the next two months.

ThiR tunnel has-been driven in  about 5000 feet and Mr. Mcintosh  was pleased with his inspection.  On the ground there is a 100-stamp  mill, excellently equipped, and in  fact everywhere the works, warehouse, machine shop,blacksmith's  shop, etc., are fitted with tbe  most modern of appliances. Mr.  Mcintosh   paid   considerable at-  The Boston Commercial has the  following to say of the unsatisfactory copper market:  Copper is weak and lower.  Lake can be bought at 13, and  electrolytic at 12^ cents per  pound. After the recent unfortunate developments in the political situation caused the buying  demand to vanish the largest producers set about supplying such  market as rumaitied. It is understood that consumers, chiefly  foreign, took a total of 40,000,000  pounds at prices ranging all the  way from 13J4 down to 13 cents.  These sales greatly reduced the  existing furplus supplies. It was  believed that the lower price  would bring domestic consumers  into the market. As yet thev  have bought only sparingly. If  advantage of thc opportunity now  offered is taken they will be able  to f^et their copper at a Utile better average than their competitors in Europe secured theirs.  No considerable amount of cop.  per could be bought for 13 cents.  Producers as a rule expect a much  larger range of prices duriug the  seen.

As soon as  there is a coucerted buyingmove-  ment on ���ho part of domestic consumers the price of copper will  advance sharply.

HOCKEY  Grand Forks and Greenwood  Seniors put up the best hockey  of the season in the second half  of their game on Friday last. In  the first' half the visitors had  more than held their own and only the apparently unpenetrable  defence of Dill and Watson saved  them from tallying a high score.  As it was the score at half-time  stood 1-1. In the last half the  locals star ted out with a dash and  by a quick close combination play  scored their second goal.

But the arrangements carry us  farther than this. All Japanese  immigration other than that  which comes directly Irom Japan  is settled for ever. In his report  Mr. Lemieux con'tinued, " the  Japanese government admitted  they had no jurisdiction and no  control over the emigrants coming  from Honolulu to Canada. Our  AlienLabour Act provides against  the importation pi contract labour from the United States. Hawaii is an American possession ,and  therefore our Act applies." In  addition to this an "Order in-  couacil prohibiting immigrants  from landing or coming into Canada unless thev come from the  country of their birth, or citizenship by a continuous journey  . . . . will in future prevent any  Japanese coming from the Hawaiian Islands because they do not  come from the country of - their  origin or citizenship."

EDITORIAL NOTES  With every added incident in the  Bowser fiasco, it becomes increasingly difficult to see anything  more in the policy of the British  Columbia government, than a  bizarre attempt to make the  cheapest kind of political capital  out of the unfortunate circumstances that bave arisen on the  coast. Apparently the descision  of Chief Justice Hunter was no  surprise and the government knew  that its much vaunted bill was an  impossible one and only a vain  appeal to the gallery at the expense of the national government.  The Vancouver Province, the organ of the McBride administration admits that "the judgment of  Chief Justice Hunter was expected. In view of the treaty to-which  Canada has become a party it  seems impossible for him to have  reached any other finding than lie  did."  Such is the remark of The Pro-  vi'icc.    Sure1y it is time that the  i'-j ill .-  t  ;>t    Vi.';'.(iri-!    1 .'.���'���:! 1 !-*.--  hidden under the usual penumbra  of yerbiage, was written a double  negative which made the act useless.    This year the Government  at least when introducing the bill  had in it a clause which exempted  the very people at whom, popularly, it was supposed to be directed, Now it is admitted that  the much vaunted measure even  when corrected, was known to  contravene an overriding treaty.  How fitting to an Oriental question is this spectacular and noisome display of fireworks. How  gullible, how easily tickled with  a straw, must the electorate of  this province appear to the clever  Mr. Bowser.  Another Vancouver paper, the  Sunset, admits that at present  "Japan will restrict imigration to  Canada. At present it is in her  interest to maintain intact her  relations with the Empire."  Which is all a very graceful  acknowledgement of the fact  that the Japanese question  has been settled not by fireworks  at Victoria,but by sound and sane  statesmanship at Ottawa. How  this was done is easily seen by  anyone who cares to refer to the  report presented to the House of  Commons at Ottawa by Hon. Mr.  Lemieux. Mr. Lemieux laid on  the table a letter from the Japanese Minister of Foreign Affairs  which contained the following  assurance: "Having particular  regard to circumstances of recent  occurrence in British Colnmbia,  the imperial government have decided to take efficient means to  restrict emigration to Canada."  In explanation of this letter,  Mr. Lemieux said: "Asa result  of the negotiotions the emigration of all contract labourers,  artizans, is included now prohibited���unless they come at the request of the Canadian government. This means that hereafter  such companies as the Nippon Supply Compauy, the real  cause of the whole trouble last  year will be unable to co-operate  Mr. Bowser's Act to regulate  immigration into British Columbia and the course he has followed with it is like Sol Smith Rus-  sePs "Shabby-genteel" song, "iCs  a little too sad to be funny and  a little too funny to be sad."  There is not much echo of the  degeneration'of the British people  in a recent issue of the Overseas  Edition of the London Daily Mail  which contains a prospective view  of Loudon with 16,000,000 inhabitants. The Metropolitan Water  Board is preparing for this time  which it estimates, will come  within 50 years. With 16,000,000  of a population, London will use  528,000,000 gallons of water daily.  The plans of the Water Board are  to supply this amount. London's  present figure is about 7,000,000.  Three miles of placer grounds  on the Fraser river near Lillooet  have been bonded by a-Boston  syndicate. ^he"~first payment  was made on the 15th. It is understood that a dredge will be put  in.  Boundary shipments so far,this  year are 123,048 tons.,-Rossland  43,875 tons. Slocan-Koqtenay  20,953 tons. Last week the Rosslaud mines shipped 4.958 tons and  the~ various Kootenay mines 2,725  tons.  The Westmount at Ten-mile  Creek, on Slocan Lake, has shipped another car ot rich ore to the  Trail smelter. The smelter returns have not as yet been recived  but it is expected that the value  will prove phenomenally high.  The Government at Ottawa  has issued a pamphlet of about  150 page's on Canada's Fertile  Northland. It is well gotten up  with a great many illustrations  and is a perfect mine of surprises.  North of the watershed of. the  Saskatchewan is an empire of  habitable territory more thau  twice as large as Ontario, New  Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Quebec combined,a territory of 1,637-  559 square miles. This is probably the largest, richest, unexplored,, unexploited territory left  in the world. And it is all in  Canada. It is big enough to support one hundred million people-  It is rich enough in natural resources to make a wealthy, contented nation.  Canadians do not all appreciate  either the physical resources of  the Northland or the feasibility of  the route through it to the markets of Europe. Some months ago  there was prepared a government  report on the Hudson's Bay Route  and there is absolutely no doubt  that sometime in the future, it  will be the great highway for a  huge grain-carrying trade.  H. H. Rogers, president of tive;  Amalgamated Copper Company  and one of the tyrants against  whom the redoubtable Lawson  has been casting his hot shots,  says the next change in the price  of copper must be for the better.  His reason for thinking'So;is>stated  laconically when he says that it is  already so bad that it could not  be worse.
