Intermediate' Players to Organize Themselves on
Wednesday.
Open Skating Rink With a
Local Game Probably
Christmas Day.
The local hockey playere enjoyed
tbeir first limbering up of the season on the slough on Saturday and
Sunday, and while it is not at all
likely that there will be a senior
team here this season, it is very evident that a strong intermediate seven
oan be placed on the ice, judging
from tbe husky bunch of strong
skaters and first class stick handlers
who have already shown themselves.
They will h ild a meeting at the fire
hall tomorrow (Wednesday) evening
to organize for the season, and it is
hoped there will be a good attendance of those interested in this most
attractive of winter sports to help
encourage the boys in getting a
strong team together. They will play
a game against all-comers at the
opening of the rink,, probably on
Christmas Day, and try to get the
Phoenix team down for a game on
New Year's, after which a schedule
of games can be drawn up, with the
teams in this district. The local
players will practice at the rink on
Monday, Wednesday and Friday
evenings, from 7 to 8 p.m. only.
Everything is practically ready for
the opening of the rink any time
now, except the weather man, nnd
if he will send on two good, clear,
zero nights the only lacking element
will be supplied, namely, ice sufficiently strong to safely hold the
crowd of impatient skaters. Electric
arc and idcandescent lights will be
placed about Friday, and, normal
conditions prevailing meantime, the
rink will open Christmas Day, as
originally announced.
SUNSET SAUNTERINGS
On Friday evening, December
23rd, the cantata and ChaistmaB
tree by Knox church Sunday school
will be given in the Grand Forks
opera house. It is stated that it will
be the best entertainment in the his-
ory of th e school. The program
will be entirely rendered by the
young people. The cantata, "Christmas With the Pixies," is largely
musical, and will be rendered by the
scholars of the Sunday school. A
number of other special features of
tho program are: A Doll Drill, by
junior scholars, trained by Miss
Kllie Ross; a violin selection, by Miss
Marjorie Kerman; a junior quartette, etc. Santa Claus will be present for a little while and the Christmas tree will furnish gifts for over
200 young people? Doors open at
7 o'clock, and program starts at 8
o'clock. No admission will be
charged, but a collection will be
taken. The directresses are: Miss
M. Johnson, Mrs. O'Brien, Miss
Kllie Ross; pianist, Mrs. Hodgson.
Recent reports from the C.P.R.
claim, sitnatcd on Weleher mountain, about eight miles from Frank
lin camp, are very encouraging.
Assay returns from samples show
values as follows: Copper, $8.64;
Bilver, $11; gold, $8.25. The samples were taken from the workings
on the property about eight feet from
the surface. This property iB owned
by .1. W. Shaw, a well known prospector, and other local people.
Greenwood has just paid off $5600
of its bonded debt. The total debt
reduction duaing the current year
was $8000 in bonds and 89000 of
floating debt, leaving the entire indebtedness less than $80,000.
The output of the colliery of the
International Coal & Coke company
at Coleman, in i.be Crow's Nest Pass,
now amounts to 450 tons daily. The
management expect that the mine
will be producing 1000 tons daily
before Febiuary 1st. No. 2 seam,
which is sixteen feet itl thickness,
has been drifted on for a distance of
3000 feet. Tbe development on No. 4
seam approximates 1600 feet. Of
the battery of 107 ovens only 30 are
in operation owing to a delay
in the completion of the tracks
between the tipple and the ovens.
The Canadian Pacific railway is taking 95 per cent of the output, as the
coal has been found to be ideal for
steaming purposes.
W. H. Covert, the pioneer rancher
and fruit grower of this valley, visited Greenwood last Thursday. His
famous fruit ranch near this city
contains ten thousand trees. ' His
fruir and root crop last year yielded
a gross revenue of $9000, a large
figure despite the low prices tbat
prevailed until a month ago. Ilis
plum trees produced fifty-four tons
of prunes. Mr. Covert finds his best
cash market in the Boundary cities.
J. Martin, tbe railroad contractor,
made a business trip to Spokane
last Saturday.
Julius Ehrlich, manager for P,
Burns & Co. at Greenwood, was a
Grand Forks visitor the latter part
of last week.

injured recently while coasting.
L. A. Manly made a business trip
to Greenwood yesterday.

Buildings Are Being Erected
at the Betts and Hesperus Mine.
Perjury Case Was Heard in
Police Magistrate's
Court Today.
The machinery which recently arrived in this city for the Betts &
Hesperus, is now being hauled to the
mine. The boiler for the air compressor has already been placed on
its foundation, and other portions of
the plant are rapidly being placed in
position. The work of erecting a
boarding house, office and compressor buildings at this property is progressing favorably, and itis expected
that they will be completed in two
weeks' time. Eight men are now
employe* at thej mine on development work. This force will be increased when the new machinery is
placed in commission. Theodore
Herchmer, late of the«Granby smelter assay office, is the superintendent of the Betts & Hesperus, and is
stationed al the property.
The case of Francisco Fera, charged
with perjury, was up for a preliminary hearing in Police Magistrate
Cochrane's court this morning. The
case was remanded for eight days,
and Fera's bail was fixed at $1500,
which was furnished. This prosecution, which was ordered by Judge
Leamy, grew out of the suit of Tony
Scarpelli versus Francisco Fera,
tried in the county court last week,
and which involved the ownership
of a number of valuable mineral
claims in this vicinity.
Pat Weleh, the railway contractor,
expects to leave shortly on a visit to

It iB rumored that George Ewing,
formerly of the Eastern Townships
Bank here, who has been in Winnipeg for the past few months, will return to Grand Forks soon, which
would prove pleasing to the local
hockey players.
Warning—Inasmuch as The Sun
man won the $5 meerschaum pipe
at Lord Arthur Raincy's last monthly drawing, on thc 10th inst., all
persons are hereby warned against
purchasing that class of goods for
presentation to him as ChriBtmas
gifts. The pipe has had a good many
' 'puffs'' since its removal to The Sun
office, and Mr. Rainey is also entitled to this brief "puff" for his
liberality.
The entertainment and ChriBtmas
tree of the Grand Forks Methodist
church Sunday Bchool will be given
in the Grand Forks opera house on
Thursday evening, December 22nd.

long and meritorious musical and
literary program will also be rendered. An admission of 25 cents
will be charged.
The Bazaar held by the Ladies of
the Maccabees in the Addison block
last Friday and Saturday proved a
a great success. When the doors
closed, about 11 o'clock Saturday
evening, the ladies had disposed cf
their entire stock of home-made
article*. They have not yet had time
to figure up their profit, but it ia
presumed that it will be large.
If consumers of city water find
their supply cut off within the next
few dayB, they may know that their
water rates are in arrears.
The seriousness of jesting upon
grave subjects has lately been illustrated in this city. Shortly after tbe
Dominion elections, two ballot boxes
from out-of-the-way Boundary polls
failed to turn up at headquarters as
soon as expected, and a provincial
constable commenced a search for
them. In this pursuit the officer ran
across the practical joker, who informed him that the ballot boxes
had been located, and that they
were concealed in a carload of hay
in a certain feed store. The feed
man now threatens to prosecute the
joker for defamation of character.
If l.e does, the joker stands a good
chance of going to the penitentiary.
A bowling alley is being put together on the floor immediately below the opera house; and if it so
happens that a dramatic performance and a spirited game of ten-pins
are pulled off the same night, the
former will not be lacking for spontaneous and deafening applause.
Manager Spier, of the local branch'
of the EaBtern Townships bank, was

Wants Free Excursion Upon
the Completion of Great
Northern Branch.
Phoenicians  Wish  to See
Sights in Southern
Metropolis.
The ore shipments from  Phoenix
now aggregate 70 carloads daily.
Thc business men of Phoenix propose an excursion 'to Spokane in
about two weeks, upon the completion of the Great Northern branch
into that city. Last week a memo-
ial was circulated and signed by
nearly every business man and mine
superintendent asking the Great
Northern to run a free excursion on
that occasion. The assistance of the
Spokane chamber of commerce was
asked in [furthering the movement.
It proposed to make a three day trip
of it, and to spend three hours in
Grand Forks in the course of the
trip. About 100 -persons would go
with the party.
If the excursion can be arranged it
will be left with thc officials of the
Spokane Falls and Northern to arrange the date and other details. A
visit to the theatre is suggested as
one feature of the entertainmens in
the city.
Secretary Martin, of the Spokane
chamber of commerce, thinks that a
hearty welcome Bhould be given the
proposed excursion, as it would tend
to greatly increase the volume of
business between the supply houses
of that city and the towns in ibis
section of British Columbia.
THE CITY COUNCIL
The regular weekly meeting of the
eity council was held in the council
chamber last night. Mayor Hammar, Aid. Hutton, Clements, McCallum, Martin, Feeney and McNee

Hutton, the request of Mr. Hartinger for water power was referred to
thc water and light committee, with
instructions to investigate and report.
On motion of Aid. McCallum and
Clements, the collector was instructed to enforce the collection of road
tax.

TUESDAY: DE( EMBER 20, 101)4
As the date for municipal election
draws near, the conviction that the
present administration is entitled to
anothor'term appears to be growing
stronger among the ratepayers. As
n matter of fact, the present mayor
und aldermen should be honored with
a second term, provided they seek reelection. That is usually the reward tendered to all faithful public
servants. An election by acclamation would save the eity a great
deal of unnecessary ex] ense, especially ns the result is sure to be the
same whether a poll is taken or not.
A number of prominent ratepayers—who, by the way, have not
heretofore been over-friendly towards the present mayor's policy—
having assured the mayor that the
only objection they bail to tin present administration was the presence
in thc city of a number of gentry
commonly designated as the "tinhorn" clement, Mayor Hammar has
authorized the statement that he has
taken personal supervision of the
matter and will sec that the city is
rid of this undesirable class in the
future.
Kx-Aldcrman Robert Gaw's name
has been mentioned in connection
with the mayoralty contest, but up
to the present has not created any
perceptible wave of enthusiasm. The
odds are 2 to 1 that the present
mayor will be re-elected.
The Pioneer sassily remarks : "A
Seattle paper has thc following: 'The
Canadian Pacific and the Hill interests are building a smelter at Cascade.' The above is the result of the
sending out of 'hot-air' reports from
Grand Forks—the home of 'hot-air'
railways, dispatches, etc. It is safe
to say that neither C.P. R. nor Hill
interests have any more idea of erecting a smelter at Cascade than at
Grand Forks or Phoenix." Surely
it was with the idea of getting something more than a breath of hot air
that induced The Pioneer man to
leave his home in the mountain fastnesses and come down to the metropolitan life of Grand Forks to solicit
and secure patronage for his first
consecutive special number, a year
ngo, and doubtless to repeat the trip
this year. Independent najvspnper
men leave the beaten paths for something solider than hot air—any election     campaign	
conclusively
proves that. As
a matter of fact,
the desfWtcb originally appeared
in The Toronto
Star undera Montreal date line,
was copied in
this paper and
properly credited, and the fur-
reaching influence of The Sun did the rest.
The whole! trouble is, The Pioneer man has been in the woods so
long, where the principal news items
are how many tons of .ore were sent
down to Grand Forks, or how many
feet of snow someone shoveled off his
sidewalk, that he isn't exjiected to
savvy conditions at headquarters.
The time is not so far distant, however, when either or both the C.P.R.
aud G.N.R. will have smellers at or
near Grand Forks, The Pioneer Irian

the strength tbat Ferrozone imparts to
broken down men. It forms new

there was tiredness and lassitude, Ferrozone establishes a reserve of energv

Claims and Accomplishments—
We do more than just promise you
good printing—we do the printing
that's up to our promises. Any office
cub can promise—we execute. 'No
disappointnvnt—if we promise work
on a date, it's done at thnt time.
WHY GO EAST
Over the sun-burned, Bage brush
and alkali plains, when you may
just as well take a delightful, cool
and comfortable ride through the
heart ofr the Rocky Mountains in
view of the grandest scenery on the
American continent?
This you can do by traveling on,
tho Rio Grande system, the far-
famed "Scenic Line of the World,"
the only transcontinental line passing through Salt Lake City, Glen-
wood Springs, Leadville, Colorado
Sprihgs and Denver enroute to eastern points.
Three daily express trains make
close connections with all trains east
and west, and afford a choice of live
distinct routes of travel. The equipment of these trains is the best, including free reclining chair cars,
standard and tourist sleepers, a perfect dining ca*' sendee, and also
personally conducted excursion cars,
each in charge of a competent guide,
whose business is to look after   the
comfort of his guests.   No mow
pleasant and inexpensive means of
crossing the continent can be found
than is provided by these excursions.
