. Tbe Pythian Sisters held a
most successful . and enjoyable
dance on Easter Monday, and as
predicted a very large and nice
crowd was present, people coming
from all ove'r the district. The
five-piece orchestra^ composed of
Mr. and";Mrs. Romstead, Mrs.
Ommahney, Dr. A. Francis and
G. Clerf, played all the up-to-date
music and were encored :for'every
dance. Mrs. T. W. "Clarke, Miss
Renie Skilton and H. E-: Andreas
played during intermissions. The
old time dances took.very well
indeed. A. N._ Mowat made a
very efficient floor manager,
keeping;the dancers on the move.
The supper was an excellent one
and the catering to three sittings
was a huge task but the Pythian
Sisters rose to the occasion and
everybody was well satisfied.
The Pythian Sisters are to be
congratulated on their enterprise
by holding the best dance held in
The year of Our Lord nineteen
hundred and twenty-six promises to
be the most prosperous that the City
of Greenwood has experienced in
many years, and this -prosperity will
be based on the basic industry of
British Columbia���that of Mining.
About two months ago The Ledge
reproduced official,, figures showing
that the Government revenue drawn
from business generally in this district'
had increased in 1925 no less than
100 per cent as compared with 1924,
and these figures also showed that the
largest factor in the return of prosperity was the mining industry. The
spade work done last year along these
lines is already beginning to bear fruit,
as the following short review of the
mining happenings in this neighbourhood during the last few weeks will
��� While the Granby company itself,
so far as the world knows, is still content to go on paying taxes on its
properties at Phoenix, other well
known, properties in that camp are
again attracting the attention of serious
capitalists. The Rawhide, Brooklyn,
Stemwinder and adjoining claims, six
in all, have been bonded to a large
Vancouver financial house by Robert
Forshaw, and their engineer is daily
expected here to formulate final plans.
It is the expressed intention of the
new owners to put up a large mill for
the treatment of the very large bodies
of copper ore already develoved and
in part already mined, notably in the ���
Brooklyn. These claims which are ���
only a pleasant walk distant from
The Ledge office, used to be
names to conjure with in the mining
circles of the Province and it would
now seem certain that the old time
activity is to return *so far as this group
is concerned. A group of claims
adjoining the old Jewel mine is also
under option. A party of engineers
came in' to examine', it two.' weeks
ago. > Unfortunately the snow had
not then gone, off'sufficiently for their
purposes, so they secured an extension
of their option and' are coming back
again in a few weeks.
Of the silver lead mines the Elkhorn
Fraction under the management.of R.
L. Clothier is working steadily to" the'7"
entire satisfaction of those most concerned, and "it is expected that ore
will be snipped from this property
before long.
On the Gold Pick, which is generally believed to contain an extension
of the same vein, good ore has been
uncovered by Messrs. Dan McGillis
and W. Riveley. Not a little ore y
has been sacked ready for shipment
and a shaft is now being sunk to pro- '
vide more stoping ground.
The winter's work on the D. A.
has been  most gratifying and  it   is
incorporated to take over this group,
so as to permit of more satisfactory -
financial arrangements for the prosecution of the work.    This group har -
also a complete plant.
The  Prince  Henry has been recently bonded by Vancouver capitalists who are also heavily interested in '
Stewart and important operations may
be expected there, in the near future.' -
The men behind this   venture   investigated mining .costs in this neighborhood,  and could   hardly   believe
their own  figures when the'y compared them with their Stewart   experiences.    They were told that mining in Greenwood is the cheapest in
the Province,  and  now  they admit ���������
that statement is true.
The Strathmore syndicate headed
by G. S. Walters and A. J. Morrison
intend resuming work on the Strath-'
more mine situated half-a-mile north -
of town. This is a high-grade silver-
lead property and was a successful
shipper two year ago.
Dan McGillis and his associates
have also given a bond on the Bay
mine, and a syndicate at the coast is ',
being arranged to take it up; with
every prospect of this well known v
claim once more entering the ranks of
the producers.
The. Keno,  east of Greenwood,
is under lease and bond to Idaho men,
who are developing this property.   A
tunnel is being driven to tap tlie ore at ;
depth.    ,
All these properties are at the very "
doors of Greenwood, and in a subsequent issue The Ledge intends to
give details of development plans in
properties in the district tributary to
this city, which are quite sufficiently '.
important tq-'warrant a special article
to themselves.
No wonder the business men of '
Greenwood are looking forward, to
the best season this camp has enjoyed
for many years.

Court House. THE   LEDGE*   GEEENWOOD,
A Matter of  National Concern
0 Canada unquestionably derives many advantages from its close proximity
to ihe United States With its large-population, marvellous Industries; and
great v/ealili. * Many .-of ��� these advantages are so self-evident that it -would
bo a waste of time to even enumerate them. But, on the oilier hand, it is
equally tnio lhat Canada surfers as a result of the very close and intimate
relations which exist between the Dominion and its big neighbor to the south.
Those advantages and disadvantages are very largely confined, to the realm
of economics.
The subject is so large that volumes could be written' on It, pro aud con..
Among the many phases or angles of the complex questions involved in this
very large problem, thero is one which is now the matter of considerable discussion in Canada, because.-while it is economic in-ils origin, it contains within Itself possibilities affecting the whole social, industrial and-political* life
of this country.
In a sparsely settled, largely undeveloped country like Canada, with people spread thinly over half a continent, and with some sections having, little
in common, except sentimentally, with other sections,, there is. naturally lacking-thai community of interest, and resultant national spirit aiid consciousness, which animates smaller and more thickly populated countries. There
is diiliculty iu the far eastern and far western Provinces knowing and understanding each other, while these far-dung sections are not even in very close
touch and sympathy with the central Provinces, which latter are more or
less.'self-satisfied and. self-contained a.ud'lack understanding of both the east
Halifax audi St. John are closer to Boston and'New York than they are. t6
Montreal or Toronto; Montreal.ancl Toronto are closer to New York, Philadelphia and Chicago than they arc. to "Winnipeg; Winnipeg is closer to Chicago
and Minneapolis than to Vancouver or Victoria; Vancouver is closer lo Seattle,
Portland and San Francisco than to Canadian centres. Such is tlie geographical position which nothing can overcome.
One of the most effective means whereby Canadians could be made to
know and understand each other betle_;p:*an,dy "-'brought closer together, "is
through the medium of national publications, weekly and monthly magazines
and periodicals. Valiant efforts have been put forth; by public-spirited'men
and women to provide such media, hut with indifferent success, considering
there are nine million people in Caaada. Tho reason for failure is not far to
seek. .      ;,        . ���
With ji population twelve times that of Canada, United States publishers
can develop enormously large circulations for their magazines, As a result
they can command fabulous prices for advertising from the large and wealthy
national manufacturers. With enormous revenues under their control, these
publishers'can command the services ofthe world's best .writers/ artists and
illustrator's. ��� Tlie result is they can turn out the'most attractive magazines,
and of a class and at a-price.which Canadian publishers in their more limited
���field cannot begin to approach. /And, as Canadians desire the very best obtainable in magazines, as In everything else, these United States publications
have larger circulations in Canada than our own Canadian publications.
What will be the ultimate effect of this llooding of Cauadian- homes with
������United.-'States publications?     This is a question causing much concern not
, only to many, Canadians but to thoughtful students of affairs throughout the
Empire itucl in other countries.    Canadians are being constantly supplied with
the, narrow United States viewpoint on   all .International /questions' which
these magazines present as seen through Uncle Sam's spectacles and as they
affect the big republic. Canada is a member and loyal supporter of.the League
of Nations, yet our people ara supplied daily, weekly, monthly, with open and
veiled criticism and denunciations of the League.     The United States', viewpoint is urged as the only right one, and all others wrong.    We are fed upon
'.the open disregard for law which prevails throughout the United States; we
have hashed-up to us the practical-"breakdown of the marriage tie and decent
domestic, relations whicli characterizes the.-social life of the-United. Stales today ; we are inundated with'stories of ihe coming bankruptcy of C4reat~DritaiU
and the breaking-up of the Bntish Empire; and so on ad nauseaum.
What will be the effect ou the social life and political institutions of Canada if this keeps up for another generation or two? Is there any remedy
.that can be applied? yy w      ���-     * a
Canadian publishers believe that at least aTpartial remedy. Is possible, but
that-it must be applied lu an economic way; that'is,' the remedy is- riot to be
found in the arbitrary exclusion of United States'magaaiiies/but in providing a

As the subject is one which-concerns all Canadians, ib is proposed to examine .further into the subject in a subsequent article.   ..

A Remarkable  Operation
Decrease In Railway Accidents
Number of Fatalities Through Accidents Is Also Less
A considerable decrease in the number of railway accidents and in the
number of fatalities is shown in 'the
annual of the Dominion railway boa id
for the calendar year, 1925. During
these 12 months there were 2,713 accidents on Canadian railways, in which
272 persons were killed ancl 2,9155 persons Injured, as compared with 2,VA\
accidents in the previous year when
3.1S persons were idlled and 3,254 persons injured.-, Classifying these casualties, there were six killed in 1925
as against 17 in 11124; 76 employees
killed, as against 107; and 190 others
killed ,as against 194. j Crossings
protected by some means accounted
for 70 killed ln 1925 and unprotected crossings took a" toil of 294 killed
and 1,161 injured.
During 1925 -there were 8S9 fires
originating within 300 feet of lhe
railway lines, and these iires burned
over 57,430 acres, destroying ' forest
property valued at ?219,9&S and other
property, valued at ?77,t>29. There
were ^36 public sittings of the .board

Worried Over Baggage Decrease
Light Luggage Causes Slump tn
Revenue ' For European Railroads
European express and railway companies are clamoring for an increase
in rates to make up the deficit caused by the lightness-of the luggage of
female travellers. Men used to bo
called the "suit case sex,"- but .women
have gone them one better. They are
now the "hatbox sex."
Saratoga trunks, which used to be
a j?old mine for express companies
und" European railway lines, aro no
more. Milady's wardrobe has become so slight that she can put lier
entire winter and summer outilt into
a hathox, which she carries in her
compartment with her.    .
Most European lines have a sixty-
pound limit on baggage, which may
be'checked free. Consequently transportation lines are almost as hard hit
as cloth manufacturers' and dye
makers by tho "brevity of skirts and
lack of lingerie.

Blood Improving, Health-
Restoring Tonic
Every man, woman and child needs
new, rich, red blood at this time of
the year. That la a scientific fact.
All doctors know it. The blood growsf
thin and poor in the winter; there-is
not enough of It, and spring shows
the effect. Take notice and see liow
many people are pale and sallow at
this time of the year. . They complain of being easily tired, their appetite is poor, and they are often'depressed and Iow-spiriied. That is
Mother Nature urging them to improve their blood supply; bul often
their digestion is weakened so lhat
they cannot tu-n food into blood without help. ��� Here ls where modern
medical science cdines to the rescue.
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills have a direct

Rum runners in NorLh America have
their counterpart in bands of Frenchmen and Italians who carry into Italy
copies of anti-Fascist newspapers

into Italy. The Comoro Deglie Italian!, published In Paris, is notable
among tho "bootleg" Journals.
Many thousands of these newspapers are being taken into Italy and
circulated, despite the general decree against them. In addition to
those carried across the border, many
of the clandestine sheets are sent into

Britain Will Meet Obligations
Payments in 1926 to United State's
Will Total $160,000,000
Right Hon. Winston Churchill, chancellor of the exchequer, told a questioner in the House of Commons that
Great Britain's net payments to the
United-States on account of her debt
would amount to ��33,062,000 (about
?16O,000,O0O), principal and interest,
during 192(5, assuming sterling at par
value. Against this, he said, Great
Britain would receive approximately
��14,000,000 (about $.G8,000,000) fi-om-
German reparations and payments' on
tho allied war debts already funded.
Mr. Churchill added that negotiations'
were proceeding for settlement of the
remaining allied war debts.

Handling Radium Is "
. Job, For. Specialist
Health-Giving Commodity Extremely
Dangerous In Incompetent Hands
Few people realize that radium is
gunpowder. > In order to prevent It
doing dampge it has to be encased in
huge blocks of lead of at least ten
inches in thickness. Even' then its
rays penetrate and may do a great
deal of harm.'
This precious element is found in a
small mliie in the Belgian Congo. Its
scarcity can be understood when one
finds that the ratio of radium to the
ore mined Is as one part to four hundred millions. That is why it Is so"
costly.. Radium costing ��5,000 would
be more.than covered by a threepenny
The peculiar thing about radium is
that no matter how much it is used It
keeps its strength, for centuries. In
1,500 years it would still have more
than half its original healing power.
The manipulation of radium is a
specialist's job. In the British Isles
there are'not more than fifty qualified,
doctors who are competent to handle
'this health-giving yet dange.rt)tis commodity.
. A razor iu the hands of an adult.is a
useful implement, but in that of a child
it might be extremely harmful. That

What Has Been Done
Can Be Done
A dance was held in Greenwood
on Easter Monday. The services of
Mrs. B. G. Ommanney, of Grand
Forks, were engaged to play the
violin. Can she play? I'll say she
can, but that is only incidental to this
A short conversation with this
woman would be sufficient to convince anyone they had met a remarkable personality.
In the Boundary we frequently hear
the'������-remarks' "Business is quiet;
Mining aint what it used to be;
Ranchers cant make a dollar etc."
Let us make a few remarks as to
what Mrs. Ommanney has done with
nothing for a start.
-Six years ago she arrived in Canada from Englaiid. Her husband
died shortly after, leaving her penniless
with a family to support. She has
developed one of the. finest poultry
farms.in B. C. and has demonstrated
that with the combination of brains,
energy and poultry will pay handsome
The flock consists of over six
hundred hens. One hundred and
fifty of these lay over two hundred
eggs each a year while one hen laid
two hundred and sixty three eggs during 1925.
" There are more possibilities of
making money in the Boundary than
many people imagine. Have the
men all got sleeping sickness when it
is left to a woman to show that
poultry will pay. .-[[
