Greenwood Retains
Boundary Cup
Showing a brand of hockey
that fairly played Grand Forks
off their feet, Greenwood won -a
decisive victory at Grand Forks
on Wednesday by defeating" the
aspirants for the Boundary Cup
by a score of 4 to 1. The game
was never in doubt, and it was
fast, though at times inclined to
be a little rough. Grand Forks
turned qut en masse and had the
brass band which gave selections
between . periods, but in spite of
all the advantage, such as having their own referee, playing on
their own ice and having the support of a" big crowd of spectators.
Grarfd Forks never had a look in.
From the very start to the end
Green wood played an aggressive
game. Their back checking was
wonderful and team play looked
like well trained professional
work. Besides they made many
hair-raising rushes which
brought forth admiration from
the Grand' Forks crowd. It is
hard to beat a lineup like Green-
woed and they are deserving of
their victory and showed their
superiority over Grand Forks at
every stage of the game.
Greenwood scored one goal in
the first period and at the end./of
the second it stood three to nil.
Perhaps the third period was the
best of any. Grand Forks at first
rushed matters determined to
save a whitewash and after ten
mintes of lightning hockey scored
>their only goal. Shortly afterwards Greenwood made their
fourth tally. This seemed to
takefthe heart out of the Grand
Forks boys for the game ended
with Greenwood having all their
own way. A supper and dance
was held after the game.
C. Atwood scored the only goal
for Grand Forks, while Morrison
got 3 and Hallet 1 for Greenwood.

A most successful Bonspiel was
held at the Curling Rink on Tuesday and Wednesday, when two
rinks of curlers from Osoyoos and
two from Grand Forke, locked
horna with our local curlers. The
game commenced at 2 p.m. on
Tuesday and continued till tbe
"wee sma'honra" on. Wednesday
morning. The finals were played
on Wednesday forenoon and were
followed by two more games, one
being a challenge game between
rinks skipped by/ Frank Fraser, of
Osoyoos, and G. S. Walters, of
Greenwood;Nfche former winning on
the last end. wThe other was the
"Tyros" game between,rinks skipped by Carl Wolfram,'of Grand
Forks and Charles Carlson of
Greenwood, the result being a tie.
In the competition tbe results
were as follows:
Competition No. 1���Fraser,
Osoyoos, beat Kerr, Greenwood,
and Burpee, Osoyoos, beat Walters,
Greenwood, (Clark and Gardner,
Grand Forks, receiving a bye). In
the semi-finals Gardner beat
FraBer, and Clark beat Burpee. In
the finals Clark beat Gardner.
Competition No 2.���Gardner
beat Fraser, and Burpee beat Morrison, (Walmsley and Clark receiving a bye). In the semi-finals
Walmsley beat Clark and Burpee
beat Gardner. In the finals
Walmsley beat Burpee.
A most enjoyable time waa held
by all, riot the least being the celebration of Burns' "birthday on
Tuesday evening between games.
The only thing lacking in the celebration of the "Immortal Memory"
was the absence of the "Haggis",
but Mr. Montgomery (Monty) of
Osoyoos, has promised that next
year tbis will not be forgotten.
Particularly worth of mention
were recitations by James Kerr of
Greenwood and.E. C. Henniger of
Grand Forks.
Mrs. K. Blundell looked after
"eats" in her usual capable manner
The rinks taking part were:
- FraBer >and   Burpee,   Osoyoos;

The annual _ Congregational
meeting" "of" "the " "Presbyterian
Church was held in the church on
Monday evening. There was a
representative gathering and
good reports were received from
all the branches of the work. The
congregation is .encouraged and
looking forward to a good year's
work. After the business a short
programme of music was enjoyed
and refreshments were served by
the ladies. A most pleasing part
of the evening was a presentation
from the congregation and friends
of a beautiful mantle clock to thc
Rev. and Mrs, W. K. Walkinshaw.
L. Bryant, one of the oldest members, made the presentation in a
few well.chosen words. Rev, Mr.
Walkinshaw was taken very much
by surprise and expressed his appreciation of the kindly sentiment and spirit in which the presentation was made.

Friday's Game Ended in a Tie
Grand Forks ran a special train
to Greenwood- containing nearly
100 hockey fans on Friday night,
and with the local turn-out there
was the largest crowd at the
rink since 1914. The game itself
was full of thrills and the unexpected often happened. The
first period was lightning fast
with soma splendid playsby both
forward lines. - It was nip and
tuck during the whole period,
with Greenwood having a little
bit of the edge as the play was
in the opponents territory about
three quarters of the" time.' No
goals were scored.
Grand Forks came through
with a strenuous offensive in the
second period and for awhile~ it
looked bad for the local team.
Our boys seemed to be off color in
this period, didn't play their
positions with the result that the
visitors scored 4 times to Greenwood's 1.
With three goals down Greenwood started off the third period'
determined to at least even the
score. Within two minutes of
play Grand Forks scored tlieit
5th and last goal. Then Greenwood played "with a vengeance,
keeping the disc around fthe
Grand Forks gdal nearly all' the
.time.'-- At this stage of the game
,the visitors'were*, playing _a~, three
man defense,, tryiag*:i'f possible t'o
keep -the-'lead;, -but- their, tactics
without avail for Greenwood were
scored four ti toes. in. quick suc-
.cessipn.'jeveai'ng the'score." The
last period was the most exciting
of any game ever played here and
the marvelous come-back . of the
local boys surprised and; even
brought forthf complimentary
remarks froni the. visiting
Morrison scored 2'gbals, Taylor
2, and Crowley 1 for Greenwood.

Farming  Conditions in   Western   Canada Better Than Ever
tn a letter written specially for the
January issue of the Farm News Letter, published by the Canadian Bank
of Commerce, Joseph Marshall, of Tel-
low Grass, Saskatchewan, -who came
to Canada from England several years
ago, states in part:���
"1 was brought np on.a farm in the
Old Land and have, spent a numbr of
years in farming in Ontario and several years in Western Canada. I think
I have a very good idea of conditions
as they were and as tliey are. There
is no doubt in niy mind that, for tlio
amount of work we put into our land
here, we are receiving more returns
than any other place I know. If we
knew the. amount of labor, manure,
fertilizer, etc., used in the older countries to produce yields of grain such
as we get here with just plain ploughing, it would surprise us. Wiih our
methods of cultivation, their land
would not produce a crop worth harvesting. In Holland, where there is
some of the richest soil in Europe, all
liquid manure is kept, in tanks and
hauled on to the land. They, grow
immense crops, but. they certainly
spare no pains to feed the soil. A
visit to some of their dairy farms is
:i revelation to oue who Is accustomed to our western methods.. In
France and Belgium where intensive
cultivation is practiced, vrtiolo families
work in the fields .'from daylight to
dark cultivating their sugar beets and
other crops.
"I, should like fo say tliat farming
conditions in Western Canada are better than they ever were and are
steadily improving. There are so
many opportunities for thrifty and energetic men that, they cannot be enumerated. We are getting past the pioneer stage and gradually developing
into more diversified farming and livestock raising."

tor of a means of transmlttl
ceiving pictures for radio
in connection with the receiving de- [

Dr.- Jenkins said he set up his receiving set in his laboratory a short

produced on a toll of films which pass
slowly through the set. As ihe roll

Simple Device Saves a Great Den I of
Headlights dazzle most people, and
tho worst aspect of it is, there's'little
that can be done about it, i'or the
roads are far too congested nowadays
for each driver to switch off his headlights'when approaching another car.
Mr. Frederick Dalton, of Birmingham, England, has solved the difficulty, however, by applying to au ordinary .spectacle frame a small, thin
shutter. This is attached to. the eye
tliat is farthest from the passing car,
which in the case of Great Britain
would be the left eye,-but elsewhere,

Advertising  In  Ancient  Rome
Another Proof That There Is Nothing
New Under the Sun
About a thousand years before the
Christian era tlie aged and disillusioned Hebrew preacher   proclaimed   his
conviction that, "the thing that hath
been, it is ihat whicli shall be;  and
that whicli is done is lhat whicli sliall
be done, and there is uo new thing under the sun:"     ln the domain of scientific discovery and invention of which
tho ancients knew nothing, the observation is unsound, but in other lines ot
human activity if remains substantially true.     Even in so modern a development as advertising   it   has   been
found that many of its methods are not
new, but old.     Tluf restored remains
lof Pompeii, the ruined: city of Italy,
j still show, wall inscriptions and re'gu-
ilar election campaign   posters,   often
signed by women.      The same ruins
also reveal much about, business advertising in ancient Home.
The greater the Roman empire grew,
the moro nourishing became its trade.
' Advertising, of course, grew more
and more luxurious. It was a favor-
i ite child of commerce in;-. imperial*
Rome. Dozens of tho best painters
and sculptors worked for lhe wool
kings, silk houses and the big weapon
factories which grew up like mushrooms wherever-the Roman armies advanced. People vied wiih one another in erecting altars to the protectors of trade and navigation; biiVon
these altars they inscribed the names
and trade of the donors, as a mean's of
advertising. The Roman business
men were as iliongli seized"" by a fever
of.eompptition. Eurysaces, the pastry
king of -Rome, used his own tomb as
un.advertisement; his tombstone had
the form of au enormaus cake!���St.

First Radio Station
Made More Powerful
Marconi Station CFCF, Montreal, Now
In Super-Power Class
Five years after It first gave radio
broadcasting to the world, Marconi
station CFCF, Montreal, was changed
into a 8'uper-p6w;er station at tlio end
of December.
The new Marconi transmitting apparatus, which is exactly similar to
that used by station CKAC, Montreal,
gives station CFCF a power of seven
kilowatts, making'It one'of the most
powerful in the world. ���
No less than thirteen ?viarconl transmitting valves are used in the new apparatus.. Of these seven aro of the.
1,00.0-watt type and - six of 500-wat.t
capacity. The smaller valves, which
are about the size of a cocoanut, aro
used for i rea ting the sound energy lo
triple phase' rectification before being
sent into the air, in order to absolutely eliminate all carrier wsfve-hum
when the set is iu uso. The 1,000-
watt valves are about tho "size of a
soccer football and aro used for modulation and oscillation.
^ AVith the new set, station.CFCF has
been reaching places in Canada in
whicli it was ' never heard before.
Letters oi appreciation, have -been received from Manitoba, Saskatchewan,
Alberta and also from western states
as far-away as California. ..-.-.-.

330 Cambie Street, Vancouver, B.C.,
Jan. 12th, 1925.
To our Members:
Since the election in
June, your Executive has been busily
employed in many ways, but principally
in collecting money "for the discharge
of election debts of over 832,000; and in
trying to secure justice for our candidates in connection with the absentee
vote. The final count was not available till late in the.fall, and was closely
followed by the session, which required
much attention. This helps to explain
why our Executive has not sooner communicated with the workers on matters
iri which they have such a deep concern.
The conclusion of the session, however, permits more mature comment
than was previously possible.
Though over 23 per cent, of the
people voted for the. Provinical
Party, our three members constitute less than 7 per cent, of the
Legislature. This gives us a group,
large enough to express our views, but
too small to make them effective excepting through co-operation with
others. In this diflicult position our
members have maintained an independent course. On one or two major
matters au attempt was made to reach
common ground with the Conservative
Opposition in order to prevent pernicious legislation, but without success.
It will continue to be our policy to
make our principles the touchstone for
all legislation brought before future
Our campaign was noteworty because
of results in such marked contrastwith
the sniall number of members elected.
This was early seen in the concern
shown by the old parties to secure more
reputable candidates. It resulted in
the definite personal defeats pf the two
leaders . who _ personified fthe . old
machines.-. The government hastilj*
sought to disarm criticism by tacitly
admitting scandalbus'couditioii's under
the',Liquor;Board. They '.called- for-
resignations' on the Police' Board of
Vancouver, and adopted our."plan of an
independent_commissioner -for", 'the
Liquor Board, 'though failing to give
him -the'-wider' powers we, recc>mm"e*od
by holding him responsible, to the Government instead of to the Legislature,
as we - suggested." Their .'repentance,
howeverfproved'shoft -lived.':. As soon
as they were -assured .of safety -irrthe
saddle, .the old-:eyils fc-appeareel", iri
aggravated form.   .7V
Towards "the close ;bf the session,.the
government seemed to' be'mere.puppets
to'register thede'erees- of powerful outside ;' interests." ; This. was-- strikingly
illustrated in tlie case .of the timber
and other legislation, in some of -which
they- had the. assistance of, the Con-
The public reaction to this.condition
was'.remarkable. .Thoiisanda'.who prior
to: the election- discounted as "unduly:
alarming the analysisby the Provincial
Partyof conditions at Victoria, have,
.been disillusioned during -the past few
weeks., They- have been able to interpret .the proceedings iirthe--last .legislature" with a new appreciation of their,
significance.- The goverrnnejit's-'brazen
disregard of public,-rights and ���', of ."protests.- has'-"thofoughly. awalceiiedf.great
;mimbers.who,-were formerly- 'indifferent" . This new ..attitude has been reflected in the press of' thef country,
.which,.now that the opportune tinie for
action has passed, at' last demands a
clean-up at Victoria. - The session just
ended has in . itself beeii sufficient, to
both ��� j ustifiy and - vindicate. ;-the Provincial Party.;.- -'���,'-
. .��� The belate<L_alarin of a large section
of the public might-well "be cynically
disregarded ' by us, if our".desire had
beeii simply to attain office.' ,Bm-oflice
in itself was never onr objective, We
organized as a-party only when it was
apparent" that hi.no other way "could we.
get both the true" conditions,, and- the
remedies'for them before-the electorate.
We,, always - welcomed. support,' from
whatever quarter, that._seenied-to""aid
our policies.' Thus, immediately after
the election, when the senior.- member
for Vancouver, Mr: Chas.'- Woodward,
was suggested for Finance.Minister,
bur local Executive waited on him, arid
declared'that not only would tliey'not
oppose him if hefraii,-but .that .they"
would- give liim:-their.support. fThis
action "was difctated by-the hope that if
he were made a" Minister,, he would!So
his best, to curtail-needless expense and
put the finances-bf the. province onf a.
better basis. f'Any sincere evidencefof
a similar- 'intention on ft.hefparrof^the'
Conservative Opposition will meet \yith
the.sariie cordial co-operation. "Indeed
we" stand, ready today - to ��� co-operate
with any element, party, .or .organization which will, give us assurance that"
it will make -an effort to bringf about
the-.-better- conditions - we desire/ We
haye a snaallunofliciai committee,specially charged with that duty. - But we.
are" opjposed as -Jiiiconipromishigly as
ever to those whose attitude- to oiir
principles' is.'unsysnpathetic'or hostile;,'.
Our* great concern, therefore, being
to secure good government, and not to
merely,attain office, we are" watching

f TheXpresent'; government -isfmoribund, with little".-power, - ajnd ;less disposition for;.vigorous or constructive
action. , Beihg. vitally. concerned only
with retaining- office, it h aSicted with,
the tendency to capitulate to sinister
influences, inseparable * from weak
governments. The Conservarive Opposition seems incapable of consoli-
dating'the progressive elements in the
legislature behind a public spirited
policy. Hence it is ineffective. One
or two very reputable members whom
the government machine was forced to
accept on its ticket in order to deodorize
it, find themselves, in the legislature,
not only helpless, but the objects of
ridicule aud. derision by the stand
patters, now that the latter feel some
security in their indemnities. The
whole session has been depressing to
friends of good government, and to
those "anxious for an elevation of political standards and practices.
But with a public exasperated by
these things, the future holds possibilities which gives us new responsibilities. It is doubly important that for
any contingency which may arise, thc
facilities which the Provincial-Party
provides for mobilizing public sentiment, should' be maintained.. Future
political developments cannot be for-
castedt* Your Executive is, however,
keeping in close touch with events so
that advantage may be taken of - every
opportunity that arises, to insure the
acceptance of our principles. We can
do this more effectively if our friends
will maintain their local organizations
to promote good government, and will
co-operate closely with headquarters,
that we may render mutual assistance.
In the case of bye-elections developing iu any riding, the initiative should
rest with the local, action being governed by local -conditions following
consultation with headquarters. The
fullest possible assistance will be given
by us consistent with the fact that 110
funds are available.
In view of a Federal election said to
be impending, it is well to remind our
supporters that as a part)* we are organized for and concerned only with
provincial affairs, and that ordinarily
speaking, there should be nothing to
prevent any of us following our usual
affiliations in Dominion matters. However, owing tp the fact that in British
Columbia the'old parties have common
organizations for both Provincial and
Dominion affairs, our members, while
free to vote as they please, may not feel
the same liberty in identifying themselves, with the campaign 'organizations. Here, local conditions must to
some extent govern. In some cases it
may be desirable, while iu others it
may prove impossible, according to the
wisdom or lack of it which the managers of the Federal campaigns in the
various ridings show. <
There is a strong feeling among our
friends in Vancouver that while as free j
men thej' must exercise the* franchise,
present conditions make any more active part in/a federal campaign difficult, if not impracticable. It is within
the range of possibility that in the in-
term between the present, and the date
of"'aii ' election,;" that"' situation '"may
change. If so," we will promptly advise
you. But it is hard to visualize at the'
moment any adjustment of Dominion
relationships which .does hot take full
cognizance of the ijmpasse- which' has
arisen in the provincial field between
-those who have clung -to- the old party
machihes,' and those whose' alarm oyer
conditions in" the.province has led them
to put theinterests ,of .the. .country before their instinctive-allegiance to- old
associations-which , 110 longer justify,
their confidence. Needless to.say,' none
bf our ��� members .will wish' to' thrust
their assistance'upon any party, even
if "favoring it, if there.is.au indication
that' their-'aid7js"neither warited:hor

homemade Repairs

there is anything wrong with your telephone,
notify the telephone company and a - repairman
will call.
Do not try to keep a loose
