March will go out like a lion for
it came in like a lamb. March
1st was counted one of great
potent; by our ancestors. Were
it'foul, Jthen spring was surely
here, were-it fair, there would be
much bad weather to come.
Our ancestors weather lore was
founded upon centuries of experience, but we imagine it was.
not so much the actual day, as
the period of the year to which
they looked for instruction, and
experience taught them that a
March which opened, up stormy
was apt to lead to an early'spriag.
The ice carnival on Monday
night was a far greater success
than was expected even-by tho
most sanguine.-: The weather had
been very mild during tho past
week and many thought there
would be no carnival consequently
there were not many in costume-
However the ice was in fine condition and those who were in costume
were very good and spectators and.
skaters enjoyed the, evening. The

��������� v
Following its recent announcement of a revision of its schedule
of rates for the treatment of custom
zinc ore, with a benefit of about $4
a feon,to shippers- of zinc ore, the
Consolidated Mining' & Smelting
Company of Canada has issued a
new lead ore schedule.
"On the ordinary lead concentrate
going to the Trail smelter the'new
schedule will work out at a difference of about $1.25 per ton in favor
of the shipper, over tbe one which
it   will   replace.    Ife   will   benefit
many shippers   in   the Boundary
and Kootenay.     The revised list ���_...
became effective on March 1st.
.   Ih its circular letter feo fehe shippers accompaning the new schedule, .,
T. W- Bingay, qomptroller for the
company, says:
"Inclosed herewith is schedule
���G', lead ore rates, which you will
note reduces the rate on lead ores
coming to this plant.
"This redaction is being made'-'
for Bimilar reasons to those given
for fehe redaction on zinc ores, that
is to say, that we are giving ship-,
pers the benefit of reduced, costs
occasioned by improvements in
operating conditions.   .
"When   the   increases   in   our
plant are available for; operation
some time this summer, we hope
to be able to  make further revia- v
ions in favorfr of the shippers."  ~"
J. W. Williams, of 8pokane,
president of the' Jubilee Mountain-
Mining company, was in town for
a few days during the week and'1
expressed hia satisfaction of the
amount of work that has been done
afe the Spotted Horse. The compressor is doing good work and
and a 8-ffe*-hole can ��� be drilled in
fehe rock in 30 minutes. Tbe tunnel is being driven 200 feet following the lead and good ore is being
taken out every day, A shipment
of high-grade' ore, which is being
sacked, will be made very shortly
and also a trial shipment of half
a car of low grade which is already.
It is.wonderfol the amount of work
that has been done7at this mine in
so short a time and which promises
big things. The buildings erected
are of a substantial nature, a shoot
for carrying the ore to theijfn, and
steps up the mountain side. There
are 300 shareholders in Spokane
many of whom will visit the
Spotted Horse during the summer.

Tlie. immigration season ol' ]D2!> ia about to o]>en. Already the vanguard
oT what in expected,ro be the largest influx of new KcUlert* since 1913 is preparing Lo leave Hie British Isles, and I'rom then onward for some months every
Irntis-Atlantic steanier will bring its Quota. Canada will -welcome, these
new .settlers provided ihey tire of the right type and come witli a full determination to work for themselves ami'their adopted country and not to lean on
others and look to the Government to pamper and .support them.
'    Ciii.tda will welcome them' because it is now Kent*rally recognized that
this Dominion needs population and needs it badly. No. other country in
the world with anything like the same population is attempting to carry the
samo burdens and provide." thc extensive national services for its people ihat
Canada is. Nor is there any other country of small population whore ihe
extcut of the national territory is so vast, and, as a result, settlement so
cparse nud scattered.
During the last half century this Dominion has poured out money like
wafer in order to build railways, improve waterways and harbors, erect public
buildings, provide public services of all kinds, open up the. country for settlement, and develop its natural resources. Without most of these services the
land would not be available for settlement, bur, unless .that settlement follows, the financial burden to bc borne by the people who are now here, und
who with courage and foresight provided these services, -will crush them,
especially as on top of the debt created for these national undertakings there
'���'hiin been piled the still greater burden of a huge war debt.
Tho future of the Dominion is inextricably bound up with l.he securing ot
a larger population, and a population composed ot! men and women and
youths who, instead of being afraid of hard work, "will welcome it, and *who
are. prepared for some years lo forego the luxuries and pleasures and Some

certs. These concerts consisted iu
singing before the houses of the middle class and following the performance ���with a sad story ending in a plea
for alms. One of the brothers, it developed, spent his Sundays driving a
motor cycle with his Jiancee.
Investigation, further developed that
one of the most lucrative forms of begging was that of exhibiting children
by way of winning public sympathy.
It was discovered that there exists a
school in Leipsic at which children
are taught by experienced beggars
what to say and what sort of dole face
to put up. Children thus trained are
then hired out. to professional beggars,
who in return hand over a share of
the proceeds to the director- of the

The Text Explained and Illumined
The Crucifixion, verses 33, 34. Vln
our Old Testament studies ��� we have
seen how Assyrian kings boasted of
impaling men on stakes and of 'skinning them-alive; It is believed that
the Assyrians were responsible foy the
introduction of crucifixion into the
Mediterranean world. �� The Romans
did not adopt it until after the time ot
Julius Caesar, and then in Italy only
as punishment , for crimes _, against
the State or in the case of slaves,
but they did not .hesitate to use It ln
the case of the despised Jews.
"There was a sentence In tho law
which" invoked a special and irrevocable curso of God upon him who
'hung upon a tree.' -- If Jesus should
be crucified, ho will come under tho
curse, and "then, said the cunning
Pharisees, we shall se what will become of his Messianic Sonshlp. At
the door of hell, said tho Jewish teacher, sits Abraham to see that no son of
his shall pass within. But there is no
forgiveness in the hereafter, as there
ls no mercy here, for him who has
come under tlio curse of the la'w. He
must go to his place, and, Abraham
will not know him as he enters there,
for the curso of the law is upon him."

New Working Unit
For Sally Group
The annual meeting of the shareholders of the Wallace Mountain
Mine?, Ltd., which owns and
operates the "Sally Group" of
mineral claim0, located on Wallace
Mountain, afe Beaverdell, was held
in PenMcton on Tuesday afternoon.
The financial report showed that
the company had made very substantial gain9 during 1924, ancl is
now iu a thoroughly sound position.
Ore shipments to Trail smelter
brought returns amounting to
about 8165,000, which enabled the
directors, after making provision
for a reasonable reserve, to distribute very satisfactory dividends
to the shareholders.
Mr. Edward Nordman, the mine
superintendent, presented a report-,
showing the progress made iu the
development work, and improvements in buildings and equipment.
While advancing the actual mining
of the property, the company has
endeavored to make the living conditions as comfortable and attractive as possible for its employees.
During the past year the boarding
house was completely remodelled
and refurnished, electric light installed, and telephone connection
established between the mine and
Beaverdell. A first-class radio set
contributes to the entertainmeut of
the camp. Although the company
feels that it can well be proud of
their wmp, as there is probably
nothing better in the interior of
Mr. Nordman also outlined some
plans for extension work, to be
undertaken in the near future.
These include the establishment of
a new working unit, which is expected to cost about 825,000. This
will enable the company to dpen
up several newv veins occurring on
portions of the property not at
present developed. s
The ore shipped carries high
silver content, a couple of. cars
sent out during the year yielding
nearly 500 ounces to the ton, and
the average of all shipnfents being
362 ounces of silver with- slightly
more than 10 per cent of lead.
About twenty-five men are employed throughout the year.-
The head office of the company
is in Penticton. Mr. H. B. Morley,
being managing director' and secretary. The other directors are
Messrs. J. L. JohiiBton, president;
