On this application bfing made the Liquidator  asked for leave of the court to  sue certain of the directors of the  Old Dominion Copper company,  aad filed aflidavits, made by parties in New York, iu support of  charges that the former directors  had improperly implied $170,000  of the old company's money to  retire bonds cf the'old  company.  Tie latter part of the case was  argued at length on Saturday last  before Mr. Justice Gregory at  Vancouver, The result of the  various applications was that the  Liquidator was ordered to pay  into court all the1 monies of the  estate forthwith, and was directed to proceed to advertise for  creditors. The application for  his removal was dismissed.  The Liquidator's application,  for leave to sue the directors and  council of the old company, was  also dismissed, as not even a  prima facie case was made out  against them, but the dismissal  was without prejudice to a further  application being made if a further ground of action can be  shown.

It is understood that Mr. John  Kelley, a Minneapolis iron magnate, and Mr. Thomas Cole, a  prominent Duluth copper niining  operator largely interested in  Butte and Arizona mines, have  just bonded 6,000 acres of iron  lands on the northwest end of  Texada island from the owners,  prominent offiicials of the Union  Ironworks of San Francisco.  Ownership in the property is  vested in a subsidary corporation  styled the Puget Sound Iron Co.  The bonds call tor the payment  of one million dollars in a period  of three years. A $10,000 forfeit  has been paid down and a clause  in the agreement provides that  development work on the property  must be started before March 20  next.  BROKE GAOL  BROUGHT BACK  On Tuesday afternoon last the  alarm bell rang to summon the city  police. A disreputable character,  Arthur Edward McKenzie by name,  had amused himself by beating an  unfortunate woman most severely.  He resisted arrest and made off to  Anaconda, along the track, but with  Chief of City Police Jenkins and  Grey Pond after hiin, he was speedily  brought to time and landed in the  city i*aol securely handcuffed.  The prisoner was put to work cutting wood and, watching his opportunity, escaped about 5 o'clock. He  tried to get a ride on an ore train to  the Mother Lode, but was put off.  Then he engaged a room at an Anaconda hotel, but soon after pulled out  for Midway. Chief of Provincial  Police Bunbury was at once notified  and dispatched W. Wilson, of the  provincial police force, to Midway,  where Constables Kempston and Wilson arrested McKen/.ie and brought  him back in short order to Greenwood to face several serious charges.  Chief Bunbury and his staff deserve  credit for their efficient and speedy  w.ork.  That the prisoner will receive a severe sentence is a foregone conclusion. Resisting arrest and breaking  gaol are bad enough, but when a ruffian thrashes a defenceless woman it  is time he was put out of the way for  as long as the law allows, and at hard  labor at that.  GREENWOOD VS, PHOENIX  MINE EXPLOSION  (From Ilouudarr Creek   Times of Feb. 4   10M)  ., A .local  syndicate  has  bonded  ��hje: YDa0pnYj\^^^y:^aip.  for  "The offer of the B.C.

The shaft on the Strawberry  on the north fork of Kettle river  is down IO0 feet, and has 16 ft.  of fine copper gold ore.  The control of the Grey Eagle,  Banner, Tip Top and Triangle  claims at Phoenix has passed into  the hands of Jay P. Greaves.  W. J. Snodgrass and F. T.

Eossland beat Greenwood by  three to two, at the rink last  night, The home team was as  follows: Holmes, Macpherson,  Fry. Newlands. Warren, Nase,  Chesterton.  A splendid game of hockey was  witnessed at Phoenix, on Wednesday night, on capital ice. At  the end of half time, the Greenwood boys were ahead, the score  standing 2 to 1. Greenwood got  the next goal and kept the score  Lai.3Jfcp..l-ior the ^.best-part of the  game. Phoenix however man.  aged to score three more goals  before time was called and won  by 4 to 3. The Greenwood team  was handicapped by the loss of  T. McDonald through illness.  Last night a special train took  the Greenwood team and their  friends to Grand Forks.  FROM DENORO  TO MIDWAY  The Greenwood BoaTd ot Trade  resolutions, re the long promised  but not as yet constructed Great  Northern connection, Denoro with  Midway, have been endorsed by  the Associated Boards of Trade  of Southern B. C.  Letters have been received by  Secretary F. W. MeLaine Irom  Sir Wilfrid Laurier, Martin Burrell, M. P., and Senators Bostock  and Templeman, stating that  their support will be given to the  movement to have this connecting link constructed in accordance with the terms of the charter.  Great credit is due to Mr. McLaine for his perseverance in  having this matter brought tothe  notice of the  proper   authorities.

Where is it? We want it spent  on a site and building in Greenwood before we forget what an  up-to-date stone or brick postoffice  looks like.  BAD ACCIDENT  -East  rink,  West rink,  -East rink,  West rink,  Life consists in the alternate  process of learning and unlearning, but it is oftener wiser to unlearn thau to learn.  A terrific explosion occurred  February 1, in a Colorado coal  mine. Seventy-nine bodies were  found at the foot of the air shaft,  where the poor miners had rushed  for safety. There were 149 men  underground at the time and it  is feared all are dead. The fans  were blown to pieces by the force  of the explosion.

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 4. 1910.  SLEDS  While bobsleds and sleighs may  be of a distinctly useful and  child-amusing nature, we fail to  see that whon deposited pell raell  along the sidewalk, on a dark  night, they serve any useful or  ornamental purpose; unless it be  to try the temper of the guileless  home corner at 1 a. ni., who becomes entangled in the meshes of  leading strings, and refrains from  imprecations when his ankles  come in contact with the foul  thing and he bows to the inevitable, and sees many stars that are  not in the firmament above or the  waters below.  It's a vile habit at best to leave  these impediments to impede the  passer by at every doorway where  the children dwell.    Nuf sed !  THE POOR OF PARIS  Secure in our own homes, with  impregnable mountains to guard  us. and safe from floods, ruin and  disaster, we find it   hard  to real  ize the terror of what Parisians  are undergoing today.  Tbe most gay and joyous oity  in the old world is in tears and  tribulation. Her homes destroyed,  personal property ruined, and  many lives being washed out daily  by the most terrific floods that  gay Paree has ever witnessed.  Only last week the authorities  had to resort to dynamite to blow  up the historic Pont de L'Alma,  one of the most famous bridges  spanning the Seine, to prevent  the formation of a disastrous dam.  Many lives have been lost by the  collapse of buildings and all  Paris is in great distress. Famine threatens the poor, for several  railway lines have been abandoned, the stations and miles ot  track beiug under water, so no  outside provisions can be brought  into the city.  Think of it, and be thankful  we are safe and sound, sure and  secure, and extend your pity and  sympaty to the poor of Paris.  OUR RESOLUTION  The following is the opinion  of the Hedley Gazette, a paper  published in a town that has  Great Northern connection, but  doeB not see why Greenwood  wants similar railroad advantages. We intend to stick to our  rights in spite of the Hedley Gazette, and cannot see that the  compulsory fulfillment of an  agreement of long standing need  of necessity curtail construction  to tbe coast. To call tbe G. N.  Ry. line from Denoro to Greenwood, " a small matter of detail "  is rich.  "The Greenwood Board of  Trade have apparently decided to  launch a little sensation of their  own, by passing a long-winded  resolution setting forth the perfidy of the Great Northern in  failing to build the branch betweeu Midway aud Greenwood;  and they eveu go so far as to say  that no extension of time is to be  given to complete the unfinished  portion between Princeton and  the coast until the branch between Midway and Greenwood  has first been built.  "We are all ready to admit  that it is exceedingly annoying to  have promises broken and hopes  raised only to be dashed again to  the ground as they were in Greenwood's case in the matter of that  local branch, for the Great Northern obtained charter rights to  build from Midway to Greenwood,  located a line, and gave Greenwood to believe that actual building would follow shortly after  Midway was reached. Nevertheless, Greenwood is not justified in  saying that because faith has not  Those who'owe small sums of  money to this paper, either for  subscription or job work, are  hereby requested to remit by post-  office order or to add exchange to  their checks in future.  Hedley gave a Hospital Benefit  Ball which netted $600, last week.  Few towns in the interior could  do so well, and it speaks volumes  for the people of Hedley, who are  to be congratulated.  Ps-ris is still in the swim. The  losses from the flood damages are  estimated at three hundred mill-  ioriW'  Over 100 deaths are reported  froip (smallpox at Chang Chow,  one of the largest cities in China  last week.  The C.

Twenty-one to eleven was  the score the Ottawas made  against Edmonton in the second  game. The defeated team -frill  make another attempt to get the  cup west next year  The Department ot agriculture  at Ottawa has begun inquiry into  the increased cost of living and  the reasons therefor, The labor  department will give its attention to the same subject with regard to manufactured products.  The agricultural department is  confining itself to food. Perhaps  the fault is with the liver. We  all indulge in too many luxuries  nowadays.

Great  excitement is reported and a great  rush is on staking coal lands.  The iron mines at Kitchener, 20  miles east of Kootenay lake, are attracting considerable attention just  now. These twenty hematite'claims  are the property of the C. P. R.  About $50,000 has been expended in  development. A steel industry for  B. C. would, be a great boon and  would help the coal and other mining  industries as well.  News is just to hand from the  camp between Massett and the Ya-  koun, Q. C. Islands, that the diamond  drill at work there has struck a large  body of coal. Three seams of excellent coking and steam coal are reported, the largest seam being 9 feet  6 inches at 600 feet below the surface. The coal area is extensive and  this and other colleries to be opened  up this spring will ensure a population  for Graham island of 50,000   people  Canada may have an entirely new  industry as a result of a visit now being paid to East Kootenay, B. C., by  Eduardo Riondel, an eminent financier of France, who is president of  the Canadian Metal company, which  operates the Blue Bell mine at Riondel, B. C. The new industry, if it  materializes, will be the establishment,  probably at Riondel, of works for the  reduction of "zinc ores into zinc oxide,  a property similar-to white lead, used  in the manufacture of paint.  Teziutlan continued to  keep  its new  smelte!" out of operation;  in  The copper production of Mexico  1909 was 156,982,688 pounds,  against 89,576,464 pounds in 1898.  The producers of blister in Mexico  were Cananea, Aguascalieiir.es, Tor-  reon and Boleo. AH of theni increased outputs in 1909. A great  deal of Mexican ore was also smelted  at Douglas, Ariz., and at other works  in the United States. The largest  part of the increase in Mexican production in 1909 was due to Cananea.  One hundred and forty thousand  dollars has been invested in British  Columbia within the last few days by  James A. Moore,' president of the  Irondale Smelting company. Of this  amount $60,000 has been spent in the  procuring of extensive coal measures  on Graham island, which, it is understood, are to be utilized and exploited  in connection with the large steel industry which the capitalist proposes  establishing on Vancouver island.  The remainder, $75,000, has been  invested in the securing of the title  to immense deposits of magnesite  situated just back of the town of  Atlin, one of the most important mining centers of the provincial interior.

Spokane men control many of the  mines; Spokane men control some  of the railroads, aud half a score  of the coal mines in Alberta are  owned by residents of this city,  Why gut the coal mines annually  to pay railroads for hauling the  ores hundreds of miles, and to  pay foreign smelting companies  for handling the ores, when a  large reduction plant could be  built here, and run at a profit?���  Inland Observer.  fj While it is almost-impossible to prevent an accident, it is never impossible  to be prepared���\\ is not beyond any  one's purse.
