The early morning hours saw many of  the candidates and their workers hustling over the city  in order to secure the early morning vote, which every  wise politician knows means much to obtain an early lead.  The day was an ideal one for an election. While the  thermometer stood at 6 below early in the morning, yet as  the day advanced the atmosphere became milder and the  air just crisp enough to give vim and activity to those  who were interested in seeing their favorite candidates  win. Sleighs were run back and forth from the polling  place all day, and any voter in the city who did not get a  swift ride behind a fiery pair of steeds have themselves to  blame.  The two candidates for mayor, Mr. Mcintosh and Mr.  Holmes run practically on the same platform. Both gentlemen gave out anti-election - promises that they would  give the city an active, business administration and a  square deal to all, Both leaders were backed up by alder-  matic candidates whose reputations for good citizens is  above reproach, and it made but little difference which  of these gentlemen should come under the wire first.  The defeat of Mr. Holmes is not attributed to any particular cause. He is a stable business man and would  have made a good mayor. He stands well in the community, and his many friends regret his defeat.  Duncan Mcintosh's re-election is4 an indorsement of his  administration during the past year. The city has been  run on an economical basis, and retrenchment has been the  watchword all along the line. Mr. Mcintosh has probably  done more for Greenwood than any other one man. He  has not only induced capitalists to invest thousands of dollars in the Boundary district, but he has spent his own  money here, and his election to the chief executive's seat  for a second term is but a just reward for the many good  turn�� he has done Greenwood..  The six aldermen elected are all good men well known  for their-sterling yvorth, and the citizens of this city can  rest assured that the affairs of Greenwood municipally are  in good hands for another twelve months.

Tom Cave came down from  Westbridge last Sunday and paid  a visit to his fruit farm on the  Kettle river.  Mr. Buckless, of Greenwood,  drove through Rock Creek last  Friday on his way to visit his  logging interests above West-  bridge.  At a meeting of the Myncaster  Farmers' Institute, held at Lar-  sen's Hall on the 4th inst. It  was decided that the name should  be changed to that of "The Rock  Creek Farmer's Institute."  A record deer head was brought  in by Mr. H. Witing last month.  The outside measurement was 29  inches; greatsst spread, 43}inches;  point to point, 25 inches; around  base of horn, 9 5-8 inches; points,  12 and 10.  Logging camps are in full  swing and report says that about  17 million feet of lumber will  leave this district in tbe spring  flood.  The temperature recorded in  this district for the month of December is as follows:  mau and child in the United  Kingdom. To appreciate what  this means we may add that it is  equivalent to an investment  abroad by the people of Victoria  of 16 millions of dollars. These  figures give some vague idea of  the enormous wealth of the United Kingdom. They show why it  is that London is and is likely  to remain the money center of  the world, and thoy are worth  more than a passing thought in  these days when so many people  are endeavoring to make it appear that the Mother Country has  become weak and decrepit.

The lirst game of hockey to be  played in Greenwood this season  will be pulled off at the new rink  on Monday evening next between  the Greenwood and Grand Forks  teams. Both teams are said to  be exceptionally fast this year,  and an exciting contest is anticipated.  Grand Forks has played two  games thus far this season with  Phoenix, the first game resulting  in a tie and the second 10 io 4 for  Phoenix. This, however does  not prove that Phoenix is the  stronger of the two teams, as the  hockey season has barely opened,  and very little practice has been  done owing to the late ice formation. Especially does this apply  to our home team, as it is but a  few d-sys since the completion of  the new $7,000 rink.  Naturally do the people of this  citv hope for the success of the  Greenwood boys, and alj should  attend the game, rooting and giving not only moral support, but  financial aid as well. The price  o-f admission is 50c for adults and  25c for children.  DID PAPKE HOLD  THE FIGHT TITLE?

Gotch Gets Present.  A wedding present of $20,000  was handed Frank Gotch by H.  H. Frazee, the theatrical man,  when Gotch and Miss Gladys  Oestrich were married on last  Wednesday. In return for the  present Gotch will be required to  devote 20 minutes of his time  each day during the next 20  weeks to vaudeyitle, for the gift  is in the form of a contract.  Frazee, who managed James J.  Jefferies' vaudeville tour when  the latter emerged from retirement two years ago, says that  Gotch is just as good a card as  the "hope of the white race" was  then, and Gotch's contract is almost a duplicate of that entered  into between Jefferies and Frazee.  If Gotch signs it he will class  with the highest vaudeville stars  in point of salary. ,  Many Chicago sporting men  believe Gotch will yet sign for a  match with George Hacken-  schmidt, the Russian wrestler.  British Investments  One of the staff of the Statist  has compiled a statement showing the amount of British investments abroad. The figures are  startling. He- estimates the total at $15,900,000,000, of which  very nearly one-half is invested  in India and the Colonies. Of  Colonial investments five billions  are placed in Canada, Australia  and South Africa. The foreign  investments are chiefly in the  United States and South Ameri-  'ca, Argentine coming in for a  large share. The vastness of  these   investments   will    appear  that any great fiscal changes will  be made,  it is very   likely that J-from the fact that it is a sum al-  a foundation will be laid for more* mosi So $400 lor every _.an, !wo-  Curling Game.  Skips Birnie and Russell played a practice game of curling at  the rink on Monday night which  resulted in Russell's favor. On  Tuesday night Skips McCutcheon  and McMynn indulged in a game  of the fascinating sport, Mr. McCutcheon carrying off the honors.  The ice is in fine condition and  some very expert curling is look-  for as the season advances and  the players get warmed up to the  sport.    Sims Reprimanded  President Taft has directed the  Secretary of Navy Mevers to convey to Commander Sims, a con-  spicious reprimand for tbe last  drop of blood speech which has  offended Germany.  Some persons say that under  the rules of the ring Bill Papke  has lost the world's middleweight  championship, which he assumed  at thc death of Stanley Ketchel.  Papke proclaimed himself champion before he entered the ring  with Dave Smith at Sydnev, N.  S. W., and agreed to let the title  go with the result. Smith won  on a foul iu the tenth round and  thereby captured Papke's assumed  title.  But it is  an   open   question   in  this country whether P^ke had a  right to defend the world'.- middle  weight championship  aid   ring  records are used  as pr > ���('   'hat  he has been masquerading ��m the  other side of the gloh ���.    Paj.ke it  is true stopped Ketchel mice, but  he was also knocked   out  in 11  rounds   and    twice    beaten    on  points, once in 10 anc| again in 20  rounds by ttie late middle-weight  champion.    There was no doubt  as to   the   mastery   of Ketchc.l.  He had the Indiau sign on Papke  and was Universally  regarded   as  a greater fighter in every particular.  But after K*tchel's six-round  bout with Sam Longford in Philadelphia it was generally con-  ceeded by ring sharps that Langford in a longer fight would surely have won. In fact, Ketchel  was broadly accused of side stepping Langford after that, and because of such action Langford's  prowess increased. Furthermore  Papke absolutely refused to fight  Langford at 158 pounds ringside,  giving 3n excuse that he had  drawn the color line  When Ketchel died Langford  claimed tbe middleweight title  and announced that he wou'd  make 158 pounds for any m.in in  the world.  As both Ketchel and Papke had  refused to fight him Langford's  claim under th�� rules was pronounced reason-able by many  sporting critics who still believe  that the Boston tar babv is tie  best pugilist at middleweight in  the ring todav.  Buf eliminating Langford for  the sake of argument, it may be  said that Papke has never been  regarded as a champion by Jack  (Twin) Sullivan of BoHton, Frank  Klaus of Pittsburg. Hugo Kelly  of Chicago and otlier middle-  weights. Sullivan, wbo is probably the best of this lot, has been  unable to secure a match with  Papke, although ready to meet  bim at anv time. Klaus a \ear  ago stood Papke off in a rough  six-round bout in Pittsburg, whi'e  two years ago Kelly fought 25  rounds to a draw with Papke at  Vernon, Cal., although several  months later Papke knocked him  out in a punch at Colma. In view  of this controver >v it is asserted  by American aportiug men, therefore, that Papke was not the recognized middleweight champion  of the world or of America when  he got into the ring with Smith.

GREENWOOD'S OUTLOOK.  Without a doubt the mining  intersts in the Boundary district  will assume greater activity during this year than that of the  vear just closed. There is every  reason to believe tbat the year  1911 will be a banner a ear in the  developing of rew proj erties and  the resumption of woik on old  workings in this section of British Columbia.  New capital is becoming interested in this field, and the comparatively easy access to the vast  mountains of mpper at ibe very  threshold of Greenwood will induce many investors to enter the  fascinating < ���ecu pat ion of delving  into the b��weis.>f tin*- earth for  the hidden treasure.  The day is not far distant when  the Boundary district will have  a far-reaching reputation as the  great copper center of the North  American continent.  Lack of sufficient capital to  thoroughly develop the prospects  surrounding Greenwood is the  only reason that thiB is not now  the greatest mining camp in the  Northwest.  Men who are old miners and  are familiar 'with every mining  camp within a thousand miles of  this district do not hesitate to  declare that underneath the surrounding hills lies dormant, millions of dollars tbat only awaits  the hand of man to bring them  forth to the light of day.  In the early spring many new  claims wili be worked. The  building of the Kettle River  Valley railway will cause a resumption in that section of the  Boundary. Lack of transportation facilities has been the only  reason why the mines at Beaverdell and the adjacent country  are now idle.    Thousands of tons! jt was  asserted,   was  to  depress  by long odds. While it is admitted that the success of the  tunnel means much to this town,  and that it will stimulate others  to make investments, yet, should  it be a failure, there are still  other claims here that are rich  and only need capital to make  them paving propositions.  It is highly probable that rich  ore will be reached in both the  Argo and Greenwood-Pboenix  tunnels, and should this prove  true, Greenwood will certainly  jump to an exbalted position in  the mining world  However, takiug the situation  as it now presents itself, and giving the matter sober, business  thought, the entire outlook is  bright and encouraging, and the  prospects for a great year in the  Bouudary district cannot be disputed.  AGAINST IMMIGRATION  Agitation for legislation in the  United States on the immigration question is growing in  strength, aud the movement is  quite generally indorsed by the  working men of Canada who now  have a petition before the Ottawa government bearing upon tbe  same subject.  Samuel Gompers, president of  the American Federation of Labor and others have been invited  to address a mass meeting in  Chicago on the subject of restricting immigration. The invitation is the result of action  taken Oy the Chicago Federation  of Labor, which was stirred to  action by a communication from  Everett, Wash., trades council.  The Everett resolutions urged  more stringent immigration regulations.  This question is entering into  a more acute stage than it ever  before presented, owingjof^course  to the greatly increased cost of  living in the United States. The  Everett communication states  tbat in the year ending June 30,  1910, there were admitted into  the States over 1,000,000 aliens,  600,000 of whome came from  southern and eastern Europe and  Western Asia. It was claimed  that these aliens were the most  undesireable immigrant known.  The affects of the  alien  deludge  The assassination of ex-Chief  of Police, John Sullivan of Spokane, is really uo surprise to anyone who is posted on the internal  workings of the police department of the Inland Empire. Sullivan has been a terror to evil  doers of a certain class, and at  the same time is charged with  protecting another class of lawbreakers. A few months ago be  was deposed as chief pending an  investigation of his alleged  wrong-doing, and the charges  that he accepted hush money from  gamblers and lewd women is  generally credited by citizens of  Spokane. However this may be,  the fact that be came to his death  by a bullet fired by a red-handed  assassin, is deplorable in the extreme, and no effort should be  spared to bring the guilty party  to a quick and just retribution.  A GREAT MAGAZINE  We are in receipt of the British  Columbia Mining and Engineering Record for this month. The  features of the issue are: A review of the progress and development of mining and metallurgy  in British Columbia by Thomas  Kiddie, one of the pioneers of the  mining industry in the Province:  an account of the mining operations carried on by the Consolidated Mining and Smelting company; California Oil Flotations,  by L.

This is no idle pipe dream with  a fairy tale tinge or Aledine  lamp attachment. These state-  meats are facts, hinged upon  actual high grade copper and  gold ore from the surface down  that is crying for release to make  the world richer, and men who  possess dollars with nerve enongh  to spend them will reap the reward which the Almighty has  placed conveniently within their  reach.  And not only is this apparent,  but, as development progresses,  so it is with all other lines of  trade. Many additional miners  will be required and more business firms will be established to  meet the demands of the increased population that is certain to  materialize.  The failure of the Greenwood-  Phoenix tunnel to strike rich  bodies of ore as it progresses does  not seal  the  fate of Greenwood  the wages of and to destroy the  possibilities for employment for  thousands of working men of  America. The influx of Greeks  into the city of Everett and other  coast towns was referred to as examples of the results of immigration on the living conditions of  America's present population.  It is no longer said everywhere  in this country and by everybody,  "there is room here ior all comers." The pressure of population  on the nation's resources has put  an end to that kind of talk and  the feeling is spreading that  America is no longer able to take  care of Europe's surplus of labor,  to say nothing of the hordes from  Western Asia,  Our neighboring city of Phoenix can pull off a boxing contest  at any time and there is nothing  said about it, but the minute  Greenwood thinks of promoting  a stunt of this sort, there goes up  a big howl. What's the matter?  Are we more moral here in Green-  Defective Laws the Cause  In a Pennsylvania jail a woman  convicted nine years ago of murdering her husband, is still awaiting final disposition of her case.  Succeeding govenors have refused  to take upon themselves the decision of her fate, which has  been thus delayed by public protest against executing  a  woman.  In Texas a man is about to be  tried for the third time for the  slaying of another man more  than 20 years ago. The two  prior trials resulted jn disagreement and technical legal battles,  causing a delay that would have  permitted a middle-aged offender  to die of old age before the final  adjustification.  It is such cases as these that  arouse popular indigation against  tbe inefficiency of - the American  system of administering criminal  justice and inspire a demand for  the reform of legal procedure.

R. fireman, says: " The water gauge of my locomotive  burst and scalded the whole left side of my face terribly. I  had a box of Zam-Buk in my pocket, which I was using for a  sore on my lip, and when I had recovered from the first shock  of the accident, I produced the balm and had it applied freely  to the scalded parts. I was suffering acute agony, but within  a wonderfully short time Zam-Buk gave rne ease. I was able  to continue my journey and upon reaching home, I obtained  more Zam-Buk and continued the treatment. Zam-Buk acted  wonderfully well, and in a few days had the wound nicely  healing. I don't know anything so fine as Zan>Buk as a  healer of burns, scalds, cuts, and similar injuries, which  workers' are so liable to, and, in my opinion, a box of Zam-  Buk sh.-ulJ be kept handy in every worker's home."  Similkameen Valley at or near Allison  or Princeton and thence by the most  feasible route tp the Granite Creek  coal areas near the junction of Granite Creek wtth the Tulameen river.

[MINES AND MMNGf  ��� ��� ��  The annual convention of the District Association No. 6 of the Western Federation of Miners, was held  in Nelson, starting Tuesday, Jan. 10.  A contract will soon be. let for 50  feet of tunneling on the coal property  at Bergen, mine 9 miles west of Midway. _^   The deepest vertical shaft in the  world is in the Tamarac mine, near  Houghton Mich, lt is 5,353 feet  deep.    The Fife mine, on Christina lake,  is to be thoroughly explored by a  .diamond drill. A contract has been  let for 5,000 feet.of diamond drilling  on the property.  j  From the New Dominion Copper  company's Rawhide mine,  Phoenix,  about 600 tons a day has been going  to Greenwoods    An increase to 1,000  , tons a day is expected from this mine.  will result in a production or over 25,-  000,000 pounds of copper at a cost of  not oyer 10/-2, and possibly under 10  cents a pound. This will give the  company net earnings of $4.50 to $5  per share with copper selling at 13  cents a pound.���Boston Commercial.  A general meeting of the shareholders of the St. Eugene Consolidated Mining Co., the Rossland Power Co., the War Eagle Consolidated  Mining &��� Development Co., Ltd.,  and the Centre Star Mining*Co.,  Ltd., is to be held at Rossland on  Monday, Feb. 6 next for the purpose  of receiving the liquidators' reports.  Mother Lode mine has well maintained its ore production, its out-put  for 1910 having been placed at 364,-  000 tons. A large tonnage is to be  required from it, for efforts are being,  and will continue to be made to keep  its production up to 36,000 tons  monthly.    The Oro Denoro shipped.9,339  tons during the year, but has not recently been worked. The company  has for years owned a three-fourths  interest in the Emma mine situated  near Oro Denoro, but production is  not likely to aeain be made until a  satisfactory agreement can be made  with the owners of the smaller interest.   The Jack Pot group shipped 16,783  tons of ore in 1910. The C P. R.  company during the year completed  a three-mile-spur from its Eholt-  Phoenix branch to the mine, and since  then ore has been shipped regularly at  an average rate of about 100 tons  daily.    '    The Lone Star has available a tonnage estimated at about 300,000 tons  of gold-copper ore. An aerial tramway, 29,000 feet between terminals,  is nearily completed.  v Granby's new management is making plans to operate the property this  Vear to the full capacity of its smelt-  ing plant.    Itis anticipated that this  Ontario's silver output last year  was 27,000,000 ounces according to  the annual report of the department  of mines* The total value of the  mineral output of the province was  about ��43,000,000 or practically half  the total of Canada. Deputy Minister  Gibson states that there is ground for  the hope that the long record of disappointment in connection with gold  mining in Ontario will be broken.  The Kettle Valley Railway company purposes the construction of a  branch from a point on its main line  already authorized to a point in  the  Atthe company's Napoleon mine  there is an estimated quantity of about  100,000 tons of oxidized ore overlaying the sulphide and a 10 stamp  mill has been erected and is being  equipped to treat this ore.  Herosim in Mine  The conspicious heroism displayed by the late F. D. Alder-  son of Hosmer in connection with  the recent lamentable disaster at  the Believue mines in the neighbor Province of Alberta, has been  recognized by the Provincial Government in the passage of an or-  der-in-council granting- to the  widow of the deceased a gratuity  of $500, supplementing the  amount of the public subscription  iu her behalf which have recently  been made by the people of the  Kootenay. These subscriptions  when completed will, it is- expected, amount to between $1000 and  $1500.   Parliament of G. B.  The programme for the new  British parliament has been set  forth succinctly by Winston Chur-  chll in these words: "The Unionist Party have got to make up  their minds to the Liberal solution of the great problems of the  day. 'Abolition of the Veto of  the House of Lords; Disestablishment of the Welch Church,'  'Maintaince of Free Trade.'  'Grant of self-government for  Ireland.' and 'Abolition on plural  voting."'

From the B. C. Mining Record:  One of the best oil experts of California writes us: "There is no question but that many of these promotions  in oil have absolutely no chance of  making money except for the promoter."    An Eastern mining engineer who  has been examining conditions in  Kootenay is credited with the opinion  that the country is favorable to deep  development and that if such a policy  is adopted many of the old mines will  develop into profitable enterprises,  while conditions are favorable to the  opening of new producers.  The busiests and mightiest little  thing that ever was made is Chamberlain's Stomach and Liver Tablets.  They do the work when-ever vou  require their aid.

Clary$  That mining investment is the  soundest and most profitable of all  when made under the advice of competent engineers and managed with  capability and integrity, is evident  from the fact that for the first eight  months of last year 120 mines paid  $48,301,333 in dividends, and this  despite the abnormal prices of all  metals. What other industry or system of investment can snow such results? It the same period seven  smelting companies paid dividends  amounting to $11,269,600.  511  London, Toronto, Montrtal, WlnnlpsQ, Vanoouvor, 8t John, Hamilton, Calaary.  "All mines should be equipped  with telephones."

MADAME CURIE  The Famous Discoverers of Radium  All the known radium in the world could be put into a tablespoon, yot  thia less than an ounce of the magic metal has set the scientists of two continents guessing at this new conundrum of nature. The answers are very  ���wonderful, very stimulating, but very unsatisfactory, so far as the theories  are concerned, that seek to explain this rebel element which seems to defy  so outrageously Nature's strictest laws. To M. Pierre. Curie, a modest chemist, and his wife, belongs the honor of discovering the miraculous metal.  They are poor, hard-working people, consecrated to science,, caring little  for wealth or fame or position. Reserved and conservative, they speak with  extreme caution as to their discovery made in 1898; although the non-scientific world has just awakened to the revelation in the past two years.  In a little, old-fashioned house at the extreme end of Paris, near the  outer boulevard, whose criminals have given the section an unsavory nam".  Uvea the devoted couple with their one child and M. Curie's father, who is  also a famous chemist. Some years ago Mile. Sklodowski, a poor Polish girl.  went from Warsaw, her native town, to Paris to study. She had talent ana  pluck for the double fight against poverty and opposition. Her first trium;>ii  was when she entered a compe'ttive examination for higher mathemntirs.  Her success was so overwhelm! i*-g that the other competitors were eclips-i'-l  and eliminated. Not having nion^y enough to enter one of the regular sclioo -���-.  she entered a municipal working-class institute, where M. Curie directed tins  laboratory.   Soon she was his assistant and a little later his wife.
