'-_ City .Council
The regular, meeting of the
City Council was held An the City
Office on Monday evening Mayor
Gulley presiding and the Aldermen present were Messrs. Taylor,
Mowat, King and Morrison. .
. There was considerable correspondence dealt with and the
matters in connectionwere considered to be- proceeding satisfactorily. This particularly applied to the negotiations regarding the electric, lighting system.
Requests for .the thawing apparatus"^ be put into operation J
were considered and it wa's decided to make the usual^. charges'
to those requiring* their service
pipes thawing. ��� Fortunately'np
mains nave as yet .been touched
with frost and only a few service"
pipes are frozen.

profits^ cheque received v,some
criticism but it ,was.conceded that
as part of a system it could not
be disputed. ...
A^request from;, -the Curling
Club to use City, water was regretfully turned down although
it is hoped to allow the use of
water from the mains for sprinkling the rinks when the ice is
completely made..
The City Clerk was ordered to
immediately have the service cut
off any consumer being;. found
running water through faucets to
avoid freezing.
Finance was fully discussed
and the year's 'working as preliminary figures showed was considered satisfactory.
The" Mayor in. a very able
speech expressed his appreciation
of the assistance and co-operation
of all the Aldermen during the
year, and specially pointed out
that with one unavoidable excep-,
tion no other Alderman had
missed more than one meeting
during the year, a fact in which
he took pride .and trusted that
the citizens would eventually
realize the time and trouble de-.
voted to their affairs by the members of the Council and" bftetrat
great inconvenience to themselves
and loss of remuneration in their
own particular business.

Hockey Club Dance
The Hockey Club Dance on New

and went beyond the expectations
of even the most sanguine. . It was
nndoubtedly__the' most enjoyable _
dance held in Greenwood for many
a long day and as a result of tbe
boys efforts the club made a net -
profit of $87.50/ The hockey club
feels grateful to the seven musicians
who gave their services free and
rendered snch good muBic. Thanks
are also extended to Mrs. Boyce
and Mrs; Axam who looked after���
the supper tables and ' to all tbe
ladies who so cheerfully and willingly provided the eakeB. -
There were many novelty features ~wbich caused a great
deal of merriment, such as the
Balloon Dance, Serpentine Dance
and the Cinderalla Dance, besides
there were Leap Year Dances and
Old Time Dances. It was impossible to put on the Radio Dance as
the' music did not come over the
radio loud ��nongh. The boys were
also disappointed in not having fehe
Sword Dance and Highland Fling,
as the dancer was unwell. Apart
from the two minor details the
programme was carried out to perfection.

Boundary Coming Back
(H. W. C. Jackson in Mining Truth)
The Boundary country isBfeagiDg
a "comeback." Ib ia being brought
about almoBfc entirely with out the
aid or comfort of outside capital,
and, in fact, without the assistance
of any capital whatever. Most of
the operations now under way in
that section are being conducted
by local syndicates composed of as
few as two or three individuate,
some of whom work for wages
while the others prosecute'the development of their claims, the
Bleeping partners supplying the
workers with powder, tools and
rations, in much the Bame way ae
the famous Hercules mine in the
Coeur d'Alenes was successfully
opened up.
������ The generally favorable result.of
these locally financed operations
has begun to attract the attention
of outside engineers and operators
to the possibilities of the Boundary
country with the consequences that
assurances have been given from
several quarters that the diptrict
will be given another look over in
the spring. Inquiries from other
operators also Bhow much interest
in the progress of existing enter-
prizes, so that Boundary residents
are looking to the future of their
district with renewed confidence
that it will again become a Mecca
for investors reaching for legitimate
��� mining opportunities.
There is one aspect of this new
movement that is worthy of special
comment. It is being directed to
tbe exploitation of a class of
properties which obtained little
attention in the boom days. It
was the discovery and development
of large low grade bodies of copper
ore which proved to be practically
self fluxing that gave the country
its extraordinary and rapid growth
and prosperity. Aa a consequence
prospectors and operators both
^devoted their energies to a search
for similar iron-capped occurrences
aud the Bjmaller veins of rich ore,
which had first brought the district
, to the attention  of mining  men,
:   were ignored and neglected.   The
precipitate   abandonment  of both
local smelters at about the same
time, synchronizing with the slump
in the market for copper, left the
smaller low grade mines and pros-
. pecta without' anyf oqtlet,. so the
collapse of the mining industry in
that section tvas both sadden., and
. complete. ."-���  -"' ���,."-. ���';.������- ' '.: \.

Ed. Hood was out with the

like the women are more cunning

McMynn killed two on the Midway
mountain one day last week. A.
great deal more of those undesirable animals would be killed at tbis
time of the year if the government
would raise the bounty. So far as
game conservation is concerned, it
would be money well spent.

the "great divide" in the person
of C. J. TLundy, who died at the
District Hospital in Greenwooa" on
January 3rd. The late Mr. Lundy
came to Midway about 30 years
ago. He was in business in town
for a number of yearp, and of late
yearB was in the dairy business.
He was of a quiet disposition, well
liked and'respected in the community. He leaves to mourn his
loss, Jessie Louise Lundy, his,
wife, for whom much sympathy is
felt. The funeral was held-froni
the Presbyterian Cburch ou Monday afternoon to the Midway
cemetery. Funeral services were

funeral was largely attended, several comiDg a long distance to pay
their last respects to a highly
