About 27 citizens gathered in
Mayor Gulley's office last Thursday night for the purpose of
forming a Board of Trade.
Mayor Gulley presided and explained the need of such an organization and pointing out the
many benefits to be derived therefrom. Great.   _enthusiasm__and
much optimism was displayed
and all spoke in favor of forming
a Board of Trade. A strong
committee was appointed, to get
the necessary information and
when such has been procured
another meeting will be held,
officers elected, and the Board of
Trade will then get down to" business. It is the intention to make
the organizasion a district one
for more can be accomplished by
the whole district working, in
co-operation than by working independently.
Much dissatisfaction is being
expressed at the way the Post
Office Department is treating
Greenwood iu the matter of
mails. At a large public meeting held last Friday in Mayor
Gulley's office expressions of indignation were manifest and several speeches were made all
showing how the mails were delayed by not getting exchange
with the westbound train. Telegrams were sent to the P. O.
Inspector; Hon. Martin Burrell.
Postmaster General and others
explaining the urgent necessity
of getting the mail from .the
westbound tram. A, letter was
also sent to J. A. MacKelvie.

City Council
For over two thirds of the distance Greenwood had the decided
edge on Grand Forks last Fridaj
night. There was a larger attendance than previously and the fans
witnessed the local boys uncork a
buret of speed and ��� injected combination into their efforts that'eom-
plefcely sweptf aside all opposition.
They came through with one of fche
most exciting whirlwiud displays
witnessed for a long time. Their
rushing tactics, back-checking,
coupled with' accurate passing and
sharpshootiug that had the Grind
Forks defence pressed to a fare-
No goal was scored in the first
period, but strenuous play was on
tap all the time, and heavy checking and sensational rushes kept
referree, with his eagle eye on the
The second period started with
both teams playing at top speed,
and racing from one end to the
other. Ed. Morrison played the
first fifteen minutes and then waB
relieved by Hallett; later McDonald
was injured and replaced by-Morrison. Murray^finally got a clean
gefe away, ancl scored from a very
ueafe shot.
The third period was hair raising
and thrilling. Our boys fairly
outskated their opponents and bewildered Grand Forks with their
effective rushes. At times Grand
Farks did some spectacular work,
bufe fehey were hopelessly outplayed.'
The Greenwood defense Blundell,
Wood and Taylor broke up their
rushes repeatedly. The defense
were in good-form, working together ,nicely. The speed of tlie game
was surprising and occasioned a
lot of enthusiasm and Murray
again scored for Greenwood bringing the fans to feheir feet. The
game continued with unabated
speed and the big rink, rocked as
Greenwood circled around and
bombarded the opponents nets.
Ife looked like a whitewash for
Grand Forks until 20 seconds before time the visitors scored on a
foolish in front of goal by one of
our own players. The game ended
2-1 in.faver of Greenwood
Referree Al Morrison had all he
could do to watch the game and
players as_ he also had to acfe as
judge of play. However his decisions were-fair"and "satisfactory"to
to all.
Ifc was,a great game to win. The
fans liked ifc better than fehe opener,
Afe times things looked' dangerous.
In the first period neither, team
could bulge the nets. Skating was
fast and checking close.    ,   -
Murray heads the scoring list;.
Clerf was fehe hardest worker on
the forward line and never tired.
His checking and rushes were a
feature. .
. Halletfc is showing his'lasfc year's
form again and"McDonald is playing afe top notch. Morrison had
his first game tu senior hockey. He
annoys his opponents and plays
his position perfectly. He was
given some hard bumps but thafe
did not worry him.
After the game the ladies gave
the teams' hot; coffee and cake
which was appreciated and Grand

The game at Grand Forks on
Monday was won by Greenwood by
a score of 4-3. The game was very
hard fought aud in spite of the
fact that Grand Forks had stren-
thened their.line-up .and . changed
their tactics somewhat they" were
unable to get the upper hand.
This mokes three wins for Green-
wobd and one for Grand Forks. If
the local septette; wins on Friday
night it will cinch the silverware,
and a large crowd of fans should
be present to cheer our boys on to
victory.   ,:

The downward movement in
prices continues, according to figures compiled by the Department
of Labor for publication in the
December issue af the Labor
Gazette. "Retail prices' for foods
are dropping, practically all commodities with the exception ol
eggs and potatoes being effected by
the downward tendency. The
average cost of a list of staple foods
in sixty Canadian cities at the
middle of ��� December, 1920, was
$14.83, as compared with $15-32 at*
the middle of November, S14.73 in
December, 1919, and $7.95 in
December, 1914. Therefore, though
food prices must fall very much
before tbey will approach pre-war
prices they are gradually coming
down. IHE     LEDGE,     GREENWOOD,    B.     0.

the d"llcr crash of a fire-girdled tree,
overthrown by the gale, broke
through the wild cadenc of the
storm, or a tongue of fire licked a
livid spiral down some giant monarch
of \hf forest, as thc forked lightning
found it.
Bnt all of this the Indian marked

Then, suddenly, ahove all'other

wide and he sat erect with a jerk.
"Well, I'll be damned!" he exclaimed
in wonder. "Where did you spring
from, Mr. Hiawatha?"
Sagawa had stepped into the firelight. He answered the other's question, his eyes on the half-breed, who
had twisted about and now sat with a
look of fear on his face. 'I comc
from where the red 'trail beckoned
mc.     I go where my brother calls."
"Well, you've- got some little run-
wav, my regal friend, and I guess
maybe you don't find the track crowded any." The tall man was evidently piqued at the Indian's non-commit.-

a chew of tobacco, munched it in his
cadaverous jaw.0, then laughed shortly.

The million unemployed 5u Britain

fictitious prosperity, and when this is

Mackenzie Oil Fields
Ottawa Giving Close Attention to the
Whole S.tuation.
Following suspension of regulations governing petroleum and natural gas in thc northwest, the government is to give close consideration to
the whole situation in regard to the
oil fields pf the .MacKcnzie.
Various representations in this regard have been madc. One is that
instead of permitting private individuals to locate, claims, the oil fulds
should be developed as a national enterprise thus ensuring that full control of output would bc kept within
Canada.      - ' '      .    -
.There is -also the question for
decision of creating somc more appropriate form of government for the
district in view of an anticipated
rush of prospectors when the ice
breaks up. In -view of the world

of the MacKcnzie fields is regarded
as of the grcajfcc'st importance.

Alberta's Coal Production
Ani'MVuvwwwww'M^iA^ -
Figures for the Twelve-Months Will
TotajkAbout 6,650,000 Tons.
The largest output of coal, in the
history of the province is the record
of thc Alberta mines for the-past year
as announced by "the Provincial Mines
Branch. Thc figures for thc twelve
months will total about 6,650,000 tons,
as compared with 5,022,412 tons for.
tlie preceding year. -Final returns
are not yet in from all thefmines for
the month of December, but _it is
known that >the total production' will
bc approximately as stated, and,may
somewhat exceed those figures.
A marked increase in the shipments
of Alberta coal to. both eastern and
western markets was the outstanding
feature of the year's business. To
Manitoba there went 516,198 tons of
domestic coal, ' with 'an additional
1,161 tons of anthracite as against a
total of 314,290 tons in 1919. Thc
British Columbia market took 108,430
tons- of  domes ti
gain of nearly 20,000 tons ovcr_ the
preceding year.
Even Ontario furnished an'increased market for Alberta fuel during the
past year. Shipments of 10,688 tons
were madc to Toronto and other On- \
tario points as compared with two
hundred and eight tons for the* year
previous. The foregoing figures for
1920, in all cases except the estimated
total output for the year, cover eleven
months only to the end of November.

In any serious consideration of the responsibilities, duties and; functions of Government in a country like Canada.enjoying a representative system oj Parliamentary Government, the fact needs to-be kept in mind that
changing times bring new responsibilities and duties and necessitate the
adoption of ncw methods. New' inventions create new conditions, ai^d
these"must be metJby Governments as'well as by-people engaged in trade
and commerce. v -'"VV
_ Within the half century since the British possessions in North'America beCame federated as a-Dominiori, the" whole world has become commercialized to amextent undreamed of in the middle of the Nineteenth century.
When the Fathers of -.Confederation-'.".drafted the-"constitution, of the new
Dominion to be, there was only one great public service of a distinctly
business character which it was specifically provided should be the duty of
the Government to undertake and manage, namely, the postal service.
Powers were, however, conferred on Parliament'of'an "extensive character,
���'thus enabling the people through'their representatives to embark on almost
any business undertaking'which might be; considered .in the national interest.
Onc of-the stipulations made by Nova Scotia and New Brunswick jn.
agreeing to enter Confederation was that a railway should, be-built connecting them with the old Provinces of Canada. The construction of the
Intercolonial Railway was, therefore, undertaken by the D.oniinion-Government as a Government undertaking. It was, however, more political than
commercial in character; nevertheless in this "way the Government did almost at once engage in a largc business enterprise.
..,''' For many years the management of thc postal service and the Inter-
��� colonial Railway constituted thc only, really business enterprises conducted
. under direct Government management.     When' British Columbia agreed to
��� enter Confederation,' the construction''of a railway across Canada to the
Pacific Coast was provided for.and this was commenced as a Government-
owned road, It was very soon-abandoned'and.a contract awarded to the
C.P.R., and if was not until thc National Transcontinental and Grand Trunk
Pacific project was launched, that any concrete step was taken to enlarge
the scope of Government ownership of railways by Canada, and even in connection with that project it was. not thc intention to engage in,.GoTernmeht
operation. : f
Force of circumstances, and the eruption of thc Great War, operated,
however, to compel the Government of Canada to engage in railway ownership and management on a largc scale. And conditions created during the
war, coupled with thc necessity of operating a hugs railway system, have"
resulted in thc Federal Government engaging in other large commercial
undertakings. ���
It is not so many years ago'that the C.P.R. wasVhe largest smgle railway, corporation in thc world, with the greatest railway mi'eage under one
management, but als6 owning and operating lines of steamships to all parts
of thc world, express services, telegraphs, hotels ancl conducting many allied
businesses. With the amalgamation of the Intercolonial, National Transcontinental, Canadian Northern, Grand Trunk and Grand Trunk Pacific
Rirtlways into one Government-owned system, the Canadian National Railways today boast of a greater mileage .than the C.P.R. Along with the
Tailway, the Government owns and operates telegraphs, express,' hotels, elevators and ships. ���  -
The next development was the establishment of the Canadian Government Merchant Marine, and as a result scores of Canadian Government-
owned^ vessels are operating from Canadian ports to all parts of thc world.
Whether Government ownership and operation of railways and steamship services in Canada1- will prove a.financial success remains to be seen.
Government railways have long existed in- Germany, Russia and other
European countries, but political and mi'.itary reasons were thc prime factor
back of these Government enterprises. The exigencies of thc Great War
forced. Government operation of railways in both Great Briiain and the
United States," but in neither case could thc experiment be described as
financially successful, and, with thc ending of thc war, the railways wcre
returned, to private management. ��� <
During thc war, too, the United -States entered upon a fGovcrnment
ship-owning policy, just as Canada did,,but whereas the United States.is not
continuing that policy, the -Dominion is persisting in it'and adding to thc
number of its vessels in operation. While other countries have suhsized
steamship companies, and havc be'en and are partners in such companies,
Canada is developing an out-and-out Government-owned and managed mercantile service.        ' ' "     ��� ' .
It will be seen, therefore, that tho Government of Canada' is now a
huge business concern, as well as a political organization entrusted with
legislative and administrative powers for the order and good government of
thc Dominion. It is engaged in what is probably the greatest experiment
along thesc lines ever attempted by the Government of any democratic
country. The outcome may well be watched with the keenest interest by
the Canadian people as it may cither make or break thc Dominion.

output being 3,'104,926 ounces or
1S07 -ounces over 1919, but the
value of the output was ��327,349
less than in 1919. Mr. Robertson's report points that the slightly
increased output came as a surprise
to many because of the closing
down of a number of mines in the
Slocan district, the district whence
comes the greater portion of the
output of the metal, but as opposed
to this the mines on tbe northern
coast showed large increases, notably the Dolly Varden mines on
Alice Arm, the output of which for
the year' ending September - 30,
1920, aggregated "1,700,000 ounces.
A feature of the mining industry
during the year was the increase in
the output of zinc, aud increases
over 1919 of 20,027.017 pounds,
while the value of tbe output
showed an increase of $1,602,S43.
In regard to this improvement,
Mr. Robertson's report ascribes it
to the increased operations at the
Sullivan mine, East Kootenay, and
the activity of the Trail smelter,
aud states: "During the last half
of the year in other places there
bas been little or no market for
zinc ore, and a small voluoio of
sales of fche metal; several of tbe
larger of the zinc mines ancl refineries in tlie United States closed
down early iu tbe fall."
The great increase in production
of coal,- especially on Vancouver
Island, shows tbe production for
the province was .2,79.4,269- long
tons, compared with 2,267,541 in
1919,. and coke totalled 7S.100 tons
as against 91,13S in 1919. In
point of value the increase in coal
exceeded all other minerals, the
.value in 1920 being ��2,223,436 in
excess of tbat of 1919,
