GREENWOOD WINS  INTERNATIONAL C#i  MEETING OF  CITY FATHERS  After Series -of Hard Fou  Games at Rossland  Carnival.  The Rossland Carnival is over.  On Sunday last, the special C. P. R.  train, which was chartered to take a  number of Greenwoodites. over to  witness the B. C. championship finals,  on Saturday, at Rossland skating rink,  returned with its load of rooters, the  International champions and the open  challenge Cup, a most magnificent  trophy of prowess, perseverance and  good play, won by our boys in black  and yellow.  '''.-The carnival opened under most  favorable circumstances on Tuesday,  February'-8, and^the- hockey games  played during the week were largely  attended by most enthusiastiC'Crowds.  . Rossland and Moyie were the first  hockey teams to meet on the ice for  the Open Challenge and Championship cups. This 'game was won by  Moyie by a score of 6 to 7 after a  most strenuous game, on Wednesday  afternoon;  The same evening Nelson and  Phoenix played before a packed rink.  This game was won by Nelson, who  scored 9 goals to 5 for Phoenix. The  first part of the game was fairly even,  but during the last half Nelson outclassed the team from Phoenix.  On Thursday *-*afternoon Greenwood and Moyie played in the Open  Challenge competition. Our home  team were fortunate in drawing a  bye and this game with Moyie was  their first appearance on the Rossland  -;i^*M**^.-^-��t*J***i'>^^ ''"-' :M&Mm~*M��'*k*ii> fil^'iist&i^jpJ^iz&i  m  YM  ��� :��*������;.'

Yet,   in  spite  they held  down   Phoenix by  skill, and only lost by  two- gbj  score being Phoenix^  In the even^lf  by 6 to 1, and  i A regular meeting of Greenwood  City Council was held in the council  chamber Monday evening, February  14. Mayor Mcintosh and Aldermen  j Dixon, Sutherland, McKee, Craig  and Sater were present.  Moved by Alderman Dixon, seconded by Alderman McKee, that the  minutes of the previous meeting be  adopted as read.    Carried.  Letters were read from Dr. Fagan  (2) re Tuberculosis sanitarium; provincial secretary re appointment of  commissioners; W. E. Hodges, re  audit; Dr. McLean, re accepting appointment; R. T.

"kildcrman  Sater,   sec-  d>  Km  iroBi  P. BURNS & CO.  Wholesale and Retail Dealers in  Fresh Meats  Poultry and Game  Copper Street, Greenwood, B. C.  Moyie has a very strong team  and played a magnificent game, but  they were not swift enough for the  Greenwood seven, who won after  one of the hardest fought games ever  seen in Rossland by a score of 4rl.  This game has been described as  rough by the Rossland Miner, but  there was no tripping, no crosschecking or chopping by cither seven, the  heavy body checking of the Greenwood stalwarts was too much for the  Moyie boys, who are good sports^  good players and good fellows all  round. There was no score during  the first part of the game, but the last  30 minutes was perhaps the wildest  and most furious of any hockey match  seen in the west. Two Moyie men  rah into Stonewall Russell with dis-  astrus results. Most of the Moyie  boys' injuries were caused by a flying  puck. The four goals were shot by  Cameron 2, Russell 1, and Bloomfield 1. The boys all played magnificently. The lineup was as follows :  Goal, Lang; point, Russell; cover  point, McDonald; rover, Bloomfield; centre, Miller; right wjng,  Cameron; left wing,  Rochon.  On Friday afternoon Greenwood  played Nelson in the finals for the  Open Challenge cup, and won. This  is spoken of as the best game of the  whole carnival week. The score at  half time was 4 to 3 in favor of  Greenwood. J. J. Rochon, Greenwood's able.left wing, was badly injured and permanently disabled from  a severe knee check. This placed  the Greenwood team at a tremendous  disadvantage, not having a spare man,  and Nelson refusing, under Manitoba  rules, to drop one of their own men  to equalize the teams. With only 6  men to Nelson's 7, the Greenwood  boys, smarting at the seeming injustice, played the last 30 minutes of  the game  like very  demons.    They  i ii  i hi iiii      ii   ij   fpji  team defeatme^ftetH!  It was not the most interesi3B[jpj  of the carnival week, but "tliere was"  considerable go in the game. Had  Greenwood been allowed a day's rest  nothing on earth would have kept this  second cup from coming over to join  the silent vigil of the International  cup for the rest of the year in Logan's jewelry store window.  Three cheers for Greenwood  Hockey team. They did well, and  next year, all being well, they will do  still better.  ST. VALENTINE'S  MASQUERADE  The masquerade ball given by  the Boundary Valley Lodge. No.  38, I. O. O. F., at the old Masonic hall, on Government street,  last Monday, was a huge success  The Odd Fellow's dances always  are.

George Clerf, Greenwood, the  only and original goat, a llask���  empty.   -  The judges had a hard task to  pick out the winners from so large  a number of splendid costumes,  and deserve great credit for their  decisions. Mr. and- Mrs. McLaine, Mrs. Swayue, Miss Beldon  and H. Browning were the prize  awarders.  Everyone had a loveiy time  and an excellent supper was served by both the Pacific and Windsor hotels.  Dancing continued   till 4 a. m.  McGRADE^MADDEN  A pretty wedding was solemnized, at Our Lady of Lourdes  church, Spokane, when Miss Agnes McGrade and Mr. Wm, M.

BOARD ENDS  ' The Conciliation Board concluded its sitting on Monday last  and some little time will elapse  before the public has access to its  decision. From the evidence, it  is plain that the Miuers' Union  are endeavoring to make all  workers at the B, C. Copper Co's.  mines and smelters members of  their Union. Especially is their  determination directed against  the members of the Electrical  Workers, Mechanics' and Carpenters' Unions, who are not also  members of the Miners' Union.  The company contends that the*  Union has no cause to strike on  this account, and the Board was  called into being to hear the evidence and bring the parties together. Their verdict will be  sent first to Ottawa, when copies  of their report will be sent to the  Union and the company simil-  taneously.

At least  the public has had an opportunity  to hear and judge thc main issue,  and the verdict of the Board will  be eagerly looked for.  It is our sad misfortune that  the company and the Union are  not able to adjust  any differences  with<3ut reference to a board of  inquiry. Conciliation means endeavoring to gain good will.

There are, unfortunately, only  too many illmannered boys in  Greenwood, who rejoice in ridiculing and plagueing the wearers  of the cue by pestering them in  Chinatown and elsewhere, during  Chinese New Year.

Must  have had an awful load to carry.  May be the cup was very  heavy.  When the coal supply is low,  one member ot the family stays  in bed longer in the morning to  keep warm, and refuses to worry  about it. That member is an  optimist.  ENVY  We are ail too prone to envy  those whose position, socially or  financially, is supposed to be better than our own. It is a common thidg to hear untraveled  men and women express their  envy of the life lived by the "so  called great." The higher the  social plane, and the greater the  individual wealth, the more is responsibility and care the burden  to be shouldered. We must all  pay for what we are and what we  become, and pity for those, whose  status of life has been thrust  upon them by hereditary, whose  cares and anxieties are proportionate to the splendor of their  position, whose responsibilities  and worries are measured by the  amonnt of their rent roll, is more  in keeping with the average man  and woman than misplaced envy.  The man who owns the hut,  however humble, that is his  home, and whose daily earnings  are sufficient for his daily needs,  however frugally he may have to  live, is a success, aad to be envied; while the great, whose lives  are lived perforce in the world's  sneering limelight, who live in  dread of assassination for themselves and their loved ones, are  claimants for our pity and respect.  Who would wish for any sweet  girl friend to have had the life of  misery and apprehension, of fear  and ever present threatening tribulation that has been the portion  of the young girl Empress of all  the Kussias, who is now another  sad victim of the unbearable  troubles of the great and wealthy,  but utterly unhappy, rulers of  tbat awful empire.  To be satisfied with a little  add have less woes is the very  surest road to contentment and  happiness, and the rest is merely  a surplus that must cost us dearly.  It is incomparably sad that the  beautiful Czarina has at last become insane and is dying as a result of the terrible strain of her  position and its horrors.  The International Hockey cup  is here, with bonnie yellow and  black ribbons on it, too. Take a  look at it at Logan's store, and  be proud of our Greenwood  Hockey team.  A New York widow who possessed many millions and might  have married some foreigner with  a title, has become the wife of an  American who isn't even a colonel on any governor's staff.

Work on the Swede group, at Pop^  lar, is shortly to be worked by a  wealthy syndicate.  Options have recently been taken  on a large number of Nicola cdal  properties, including those of John  and James Smith, Henry Lindley and  Barclay Bonthrone.  Charles Dempster, manager* of the  Fife Mines, Ltd., has returned from  New York, having completed financial arrangements for the ensuing  year. The work at the Fife mines  will be vigorously prosecuted.  A rich strike of ore has been made  between the old Kellogg shaft and the  wagon road, and is at the end of a  ���380-foot tunnel on the North Star  mine at Kimberly. The North Star  has been the highest grade silver mine  in the province and this new find will  further enhance its value.  Another mine disaster was narrowly  averted when 150 miners in King's  colliery, Zanesville, Ohio.,.warned  through electric signals of fire which  poured down the main shaft, made  their way to a specially constructed  manhole and escaped. Arriving  above ground, they joined the small  force fighting the flames in the tipple  and power house, and the mine itself  was saved. The surface buildings  were entirely destroyed, the loss being  $40,000.

Scott, commander  of thei British Antarctic expedition of  1900-04 and of a new expedition  soon to set out, in a lecture at York  last week, defended Commander  Peary's action in sending Capt. Bart-  lett back. He said that some injustice had been done Peary in this  respect, and, while it would have  been better if he had organized the  party so that he would have had  another white man to accompany  him to the, pole, under the circumstances he had no choice because he  was bound to send Bartlett back as  leader of the Eskimos.  Captain Scott expressed the hope  that his expedition would arrive at the  south, pole before the Americans  reached thsft objective and announced  his intention of having the four fittest  men to make the last journey so that  the world would have no occasion to  doubt the word of the leader.

A  NON-PERSONAL  LIABILITY  Now running a tunnel (in 200 feet)  under valuable claims adjoining  Greenwood Townsite  on  Skylark Mountain,  OLA LOFSTAD,  President.  A. S. BLACK,  Secretary.  One of the most fatuous beliefs  that ever afflicted mortal man is that  he owns a cat. No man has ever  enjoyed or ever will enjoy that distinction. He may be giving temporary shelter to an indifferent, saucy  and sometimes irascible quadruped to  ���which he vainly tries to offer friendship with a lisping " Kitty, Kitty;"  but if he thinks on that account he  owns a cat, he is much, ah, muchly  mistaken  A man may own a dog. Or he  may own a horse. Particularly a dog.  He may get this faithful animal out  in the fields, throw a stick and his  arm out of joint simultaneously, and  experience the doubtful ��� pleasure of  seeing the noble creature bring back  the stick covered with nice, enthusiastic saliva. The doctor will bring  back the joint. But did you ever ask  a cat to perform that feat of skill and  friendship? No,-sir; she would open  one eye wide, and ask you if you detected an emerald tint therein. That's  her.    That's the cat.  Now, the horse. Of course you  can own a horse. You can harness  him up in the morning, and drive  him all day long, and then be almost  as far from home as yoii could have  been if you had walked. You can  put the silliest simpering girl at the  reins, who will try to pull the beast  astern when she really wants to go  ahead, and all the horse thinks will  be expressed in a quick glance of  pained surprise. You can say "cluck-  cluck," or "gee-dap," when the  horse is doing what a sensible soul  knows is the right thing, and his only  reply will be an attempt to gratify  your whim. But if you think the cat  was born with the strive-to-please soul  of a floor-walker, just ask her for half  of what she happens to be eating.  Pussy, as she is called by the careless, who know not what they do,  and rush in where experienced cat-  owners fear to tread���Pussy likes to  lie by the fire. For that reason you  pick her up tenderly from her seaton  the doorstep, and put her down, together with part of your necktie, in  front of the warm radiator. Does  she thank you? Not at all; she  hustles back to the doorstep, there to  commune in the light of the moon  with kindred spirits from down the  street. Then, at the hour when she  is due to be placed out on the doorstep, she comes in ��� and lies down in  front of the radiator.  However, when the cat wishes to  be amiable, I doubt if there is any  artifice or dissimulation lacking in her  repertory. When you have snuggled  down in your favorite chair, with your  book properly adjusted on your knees,  and have reached the key-word of  the paragraph, the cat will hop gaily  up, put two soiled feet on the book,  and two against your collar, and  breathe a medley of calf's liver and  fish into your face. To share even  the odor of food is the most bound-  Jess generosity on the part of a cat.  Of course you stroke the dear, soft  pet, and pull her cars (for which  offense she would have you drawn  and quartered, if she could). Then  you rub her fur the wrong way to  hear it crackle. Pussy dearly loves  that; but she refrains from destroying  your eyesight, because she wants you  to be able to see the proper food for  her in the ice box. Then you lift her  up in your arms and rub your face  against her silky pelt, and she jumps  down. There is a limit beyond  which the cat will prefer to starve.  And as she sits there on her  haunches, looking up with eyes that  may mean much or little, perhaps you  imagine that she is admiring your  physique, or your Vandyke, or is rapt  with amazement because you are a  member of the school committee or a  corporal in the nearest regiment.  Very well, if you like to think so.  But listen: After several years of  experience we conclude that Pussy is  cursing like a pirate bold, only stopping to say to herself, "I wonder  when the  old  dub is coming across  with a hunk of mutton?"  That's the cat.  ���Freeman Tilden, in Puck.  ADVERTISING PAYS  AT THE CHURCHES  Methodist ��� Rev. I. B. Hibbert  will conduct services in the Methodist  Church every Sunday.

H, M. S, NIOBE  Jt is understood lhat the negotiations for the big cruiser  Niobe, of the British navy, are  about complete and that definite  announcement will probably be  made in the house as to hetepur-  chase in a few days for a training  ship.  The Niobe is a very effective  ship and is larger than the majority of the battleships which  make up the United States tavy.  She is said to be bigger that the  famous battleship Oregon, Which  was the flagship during the celebrated cruise of the United  States navy around the world.  ALIVE AGAIN  Oregon,   Washington  and   Idaho  will begin early  next month  to reap  the real benefits of the Alaska-Yukon-  Pacific exposition.    A.   M. Cloland,  of the Northern   Pacific, has notified  Seattle officials  that  the colonist rates  of 1909 will hold good this  year beginning March   1  and  ending April  15.    This will mean a $25 rate from  St.    Paul   and   $23   from  Chicago.  Great Northern, Northern Pacific and  other  transcontinental  officials admit  that inquiries from the east  and middle west are very heavy and  they expect to see one of the greatest rushes '  of emigrants  in  the   history  of   the  Northwest.    These officials state that  the  exposition  held  last  summer is  largely  responsible   for   the  coming  rush of settlers:    The states of Oregon, Washington and Idaho never received so much advertising in so short  a time; in addition, thousands of people took advantage of exposition rates  to visit the Northwest and  investigate  for  themselves   the   stories  that   out  here is the land of milk and   honey.  They   returned   home  satisfied   that  from the farming standpoint,   as well  as from one   of climate,   the  Northwest could not be beaten anywhere in  America.      They    have ��� told   their  friends,   and  their  friends  have  repeated the  story,   so every corner of  the   Northwest  may  look  for an in  creased population this year.

Word has been received from  Sidney Norman, editor of tbe  Los Angeles Mining Review, that  Charles E. Race, formerly editor  of the Rossland Miner, is very  much alive in San Diego. This  happily disposes of the story published in the Vancouver papers  and copied by tbis paper, that  Mr. Race was blown to pieces  while operating a mine iu Du-  rango, Mexico.  AN AMERICAN HAGUE  The American society for the  judicial settlement of international disputes now under way is  planned to supplement as tar as  possible the work of the peace  conference held periodically at  The Hague.  A good house wife never opens  the condensed milk cau with her  husband's razor, nor will a loving husband curry the horse with  the nutmeg grater.  Mrs. Jm.

The ulcers would heal  for a time and then break out afresh.  I waa laid up in bed for ft long time,  absolutely unable to walk. My limb  yvab so painful that I had no rest night  after night.  " I consulted fivo different doctors !  Some adv- sed my going into hospital;  others said there was no cure for me.  After using their ointments and preparations until I was positive they could  not cure, I almost gave up in despair.  " It was then Zam-Buk waa tried and  how 1 bless the hour I got it! Within  a day it had given me some ease, and  from that time I went on improving!  The sores were so bad that it took some  time to heal them, but Zam-Buk healed  them all. The last waa healed over a  year ago and I have never had a moment's trouhle since, from any form of  ulceration."  Zam-Buk is just as good for eczema,  piles, festering sores, scalp sores, children's rashes, outs, burns, scalds, and all  skin injuries and diseases.
