The sad hews was., received in
Greenwood this week of the tragic
death of Mrs. Macomber in Skagway,
Alaska, .recently. She was caught in a
fire and burned to death.-The deceased
lady, who was aged about 70 years,

some 15 years, and lived in quarters

Princeton, fonn^^o^j^enwood._She.
visited "mTGreenwood many years ago

Word has been received,of the death
in San Diago of Robert J. Bealey, who
was prominent in financial and mining
circles in the Boundary and Kootenay
in the early days. He came to British
Columbia from New Zealand in 1889
and,was one of the first to locate at
Rossland when that city was founded.
He organized the R. J. Bealey Investment Company, with branches at
Rossland and Greenwood. George R.
Naden, now deputy minister of'lands,
was manager of the Greenwood office.
It will be recalled by oldtimers that
Mr.: Bealey started the first bank in
Greenwood and at that time, a charge
of ten cents was made to cash a $5 bill.
Tlie bank was located in a building,
since razed, next the Dixon residence
in front of the present post office.

The Lights on the Hill
Many residents have noticed the new
lights in the north end of Greenwood.
These are at the Providence mine and
they certainly show up at night.
All the machinery at the mine is run
by electricity supplied from the South
kootenay Power & Light. Co.. through
its Greenwood sub-station from Bonnington. This week the electric system
of blasting was installed. This is operated from a locked bqx in the compressor house. This is. a ,- very safe
method. The box is . locked by the
miners going on shift and cannot be
opened, until their return.
Two shifts are now working in the
shaft and good headway is being made.
Already some very high grade ore has
been taken out, but the lead was not
stripped as the leasers intend to complete the shaft before, taking out much
ore.    .

good and the dialogues were carried
out splendidly, Many songs were sung,
some of which were Irish, and very
suitable for St. Patrick's day. Everyone did their utmost towards making

all the Irish jests, although he is not
an Irishman. The ladies provided
cakes and sandwiches for luncheon and

Canadians  Are  B
During the years that have elapsed since the war, unemployment conditions in Great Britain have been the subject of much discussion, and in no
country has greater attention been paid to them than in the United States.
Scores of writers across tho line have professed to see in the British situation,
-with-its largo army of the unemployed, the dole system, and the great strikes
andgeneral industrial upheaval and labor unrest, the beginning of the end for
Great Britain in its .world leadership in finance, manufacturing, shipping and
But the' Old Land has weathered Uie many severe storms with remarkable success, has steadily increased employment, re-established its great
industries on a peace-time basis, balanced its' budget, and is paying off its
huge national debt. Its position at home and abroad continues to improve
from year.to year.
Canada, too, had a hard struggle in the years immediately following tlie
war, though nothing like what Great Britain experienced. Nevertheless, for a
number of years business in Canada was depressed and there was a considerable volume of unemployed. At the same time business conditions in the
United States were brisk, employment plentiful, production was proceeding
at top speed, wages were high, ancl the whole world was paying financial tribute to it as an outcome of the war. As a result thousands of Canadians emigrated to the States, and throughout this Dominion some sharp contrasts were
'drawn between conditions here and to the south, always to the disadvantage
of Canada. >
Within the last year or two a marked change has taken place, and-today
there is more unemployment in the United States both in the aggregate and ih
proportion to population than there is in either Canada or Great Britain. In
fact, the "situation in the United States is becoming so serious as to. call for
most serious consideration" by Congress and the various State Governments.
, The Department of Labor at Washington estimates there are four million people out -of work at present, and the Industrial Commissioner of New
reports 500,000 oot of work in that State alone. Conditions of employment in
New York State are officially stated to be the worst since 1921, while Senator
Copeland declares there are more people out of work in New York City than
at any time .since 1914. -2
Contrasting the United States with Great Britain, it is seen that New
York State alone has half as many unemployed as the United Kingdom despite the fact that the latter has four times the population. Or taking the whole
United States witli two and one-half times the population of the United Kingdom, it is seen there is four times the number of unemployed in the States
that there are in Great Britain.
While unemployment has been increasing in the United States in recent
years until it has now reached a point where the National City Bank of New
York reports 500,000 out of work in that State alone. Conditions of employment in New York State are officially stated to be the worst since 1921,
while Senator Copeland declares there are more people out of work in New
York City than at any time since 1914.
of this year are still higher than for. the. corresponding months a year-ago.
Prospects for a continuance of this satisfactory condition are of the brightest.
It seems to make no difference what branch of Canadian activity is
analysed, general improvement is to be rioted. The trade of the Dominion Is
expanding, year by year, and in this, connection the gratifying fact is noted
that the increase in imports is largely accounted for by commodities not indigenous to Canada ancl were imported for use in Canadian industry. In
building, construction the value of contracts awarded has risen from 3276,000,-
000 in 1924 to $298,000,000 in 1925, to $372,000,000 in 1926, and "to ��419,000,-
000 in 1927.'
-The steel industry, which has suffered in recent years, reports a 45 per
cent, increase in production for January this year as compared with a year
- ago. Car loadings on the railways were 22,000 greater than a year ago. Bank
- clearings, for the same month increased by $425,000,000 over January, 1927.
for any January in the history of the country. Employment for January was
���"   99.5 and for February 100.8 as compared with'the basic .figure of 100 set for
'tlie year 1920, when employment figures were first tabulated in this country,
and before the after-the-war depression set in.
Yes, Canada is busy and promises to become increasingly, so throughout
1923:     '
A Busy Season Ahead
Work  For  Thousands   Of  Men  On
Railway Building In Western
Work for thousands of men in
Western Canada and payrolls running
into millions of dollars are indicated
in the western building and expansion
programme of the Canadian Pacific
Railway for the 1928 season, according to D. C. Coleman, vice-president
of Western Lines. Tenders are already out for some of tha work, including new stations and sheds, shops,
coaling plants and new rail construction.
An   Anaemic . Condition   Easily
Recognized ��� Calls For a
Blood Builder
In most cases of anaemia the symptoms are almost the same. The sufferer grows pale and is easily tired,
after the least exertion. The appetite is fickle and the patient loses in
weight. Sometimes there are headaches, and often inability to sleep
well. As the blood becomes thinner
the symptoms become more . pronounced and often there are fainting
spells. Air this shows that the blood
is thin and watery, and at the very
first symptom of this condition the
patient should take Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills, the most reliable blood-
builder and nerve tonic known. The
sole mission of this medicine is. to
enrich the blood, and when" that is
clone all the distressing symptoms
disappear.. Among those who have
reason to praise this medicine is Mrs.
M. E. Patterson, Shanklin.N.B., who-
says:���"About four years ago I became very much run down, I could
not eat, sleep nor rest, and I grew so
nervous that the smallest things
so weak that I did. not have strength
would annoy me. Eventually I grew
to move about without help. ^ I was
just a miserable wreck, and became
very much discouraged as I had tried
many medicines which failed to help
me. In this wretched state a friend
urged me to try Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills. I did so and before long found
they were helping me. Gladly I continued taking the pills until I fully
regained my health and strength and
I have since continued in the'best of
health. Later my daughter became
anaemic and six boxes of the pills restored her to health, strength and
color. Naturally I consider Dr. Williams' Pink Pills a blessing to weak,
run-down people."   '���'���.''��&
You can get these pills through
any dealer in medicine, or by mail at
50 cent^. a box from The Dr. Williams'
Medicine Co., Brockville, Ont. :
Pool As Stablizing Agency
Does Not Attempt To Unduly Boost
Prices, Says President McPhail
That the farmers' . co-operative
wheat pool has developed "rapidly in
the four years of its operation is the
decided opinion of A. J. McPhail,
president of the pool. Mr. McPhail,
who addressed the Canadian Club at
Toronto on tlie pool, said in an interview that last year 200 million bushels of wheat went into the pool. The
farmer, he said, gets a price higher
for his grain Uian ever before. ".In
1923 the farmer got one dollar a bushel for his wheat; in 1924, the first
year of the pool, he was paid 51.60.'''-'
Addressing the Canadian Club, Mr.
McPhail declared that thc aim of the
western Canada wheat pool is not to
boost unduly the price of grain but
to bring it to a level in comfonnity
with that of other essential products.
" I know there is a feeling in some
quarters," Mr. McPhail said, " particularly on the other side of the
water, that the farmers of Western
Canada and the wheat farmers of the
world have ln mind the creating of
organizations for the purpose of getting La monopoly of the exportable
surplus of wheat and using that
monopoly to unduly raise the .price
level of wheat. The main objective of
the pool, from the financial standpoint, is that we may if possible establish the price of wheat at a level
that will compare favorably with the
price level of other commodities. I
know you will agree that it is a fair
objective and if we are able to reach
that, or even approach it, we will
have taken the greatest step,- ever
taken to stabilize the industry of
agriculture."        '
The pools were doing a business
of approximately $1,000,000 a day
turnover for each working day of
the year, he said.

Seeking Trade With Canada
Chance   For   More   Business   Being
Investigated By Belgium
According to a despatch from Brussels,-a Belgian consular agent has
been sent- to explore the possibilities
for increased trade with Canada. Interesting prospects, for commerce
with Canada <vere opening up, it was
stated. Canada imported from Belgium to the extent of $10,132,879 in
the past year ancl exported to that
country to the value of $18,069,001.

Bank Of France Endeavors To Secure
Gold Shipped To New York
By Soviets
Twenty crimson casks containing
$5,201,000 in Russian gold were involved -in a complicated legal mess
with ownership .at issue. Suit was
filed by the Bank of France in the
federal court in New York to recover
the gold bars which are now held by
tlie Equitable Trust Co., and the
Chase National Bank. It was based
on the assertion that the metal was
stolen from the vaults of the state
bank of the Russian Empire after the
Bolshevists revolution. '
The legal aspect was complicated
by the fact that United States courts
have ruled that the' Soviet can neither sue nor be sued since it is not
recognized by .the United States as
being legally an entity. The gold
was sent to New York from Russia
last month to facilitate handling of
trading between America and Russia.
When it was presented for assay, the
treasury department refused 'to receive it unless the two New York
banks would guarantee title to"it.  .

Be Sure You Get The Genuine
Fighting In
The Future
Scientific Students Propose Use
Of Peculiar New Gas
Research in some of the world's
great laboratories is leading to the
diycovevy of mysterious gayes which
affect the body unharmed. One new
combination of gases formed at the
contact with air of little-known chemicals causes subtle changes in the
nervous system which lead to a feeling of intolerable depression" and discomfort. The effect after a large dose
passes off in about a fortnight.
Upon the basis of the success already attained in the research���
though it is still in the early stages���
imaginative _stu'dents of war are
building a bizarre theory of fighting
in the future. It is suggested that
warfare may become like a fantastic
dream, with leaders of armies ancl
fleets striving to inflict, -not deatli,
"but depression on the enemy population.
The day may even come, say these
strategists, when the general who
kills one man, woman or child, will be
held to have committed a grave blunder. His aims will be attained in subtler but not less certain ways.
Just as fantastic are Uie plans, now
rapidly taking shape, to protect civilians in gas attacks. Special brigades
of gas-fighters, breathing oxygen
from an apparatus carried on the
shoulders, will patrol the streets of a
bombed city to spray neutralizing solutions over poison clouds. The provision of --underground   shelters   for
Everyone Should Be Trained In
Proper Emergency Treatment
In an interview with   The   Globe.
Hon. Wallace Nesbitt, K.C., calls for
the extension of first-aid knowledge
to every sphere of activity wherein
a person is liable to come in contact
with accidents. Nowadays���in an era
of progress,   machinery   and   rapid
transit���this means practically everywhere. The idea is deserving of immediate application, for   its   importance cannot be exaggerated.
As President of the Ontario Council
of the St. John's Ambulance Association, and for years Honorary President of the Dominion Association,
Mr. Nesbitt has taken a deep interest in this worlc. The organization is
a valuable channel for training and
service. It now has between 12,000
and 15,000 members in Ontario and
about 110,000 in Canada, although it
has existed in this country only since
1909. Its certificate has world-wide
recognition, and represents a high
standard of efficiency. It is held by
800 employees of the T.T.C., and by
170 Hydro employees. The training
which it stands tor is found to be a
valuable adjunct to safety measures
in the mines.
Many 'a life has been saved by proper emergency treatment pending the
arrival of a. doctor. The St. John's
Ambulance Association aims to make
knowledge c:i this subject so general
that treatment will be available in
practically every' emergency. Its
work should be forwarded in the
schools, in factories, ancl otlier business institutions having numbers of
employees, and in associations which
seek to improve the public welfare.���

Cultivated While Young Will

It is good advice to have a hobby.
We are constantly seeing this advice

it of less value. The most wr'etched
man we ever met was a very wealthy
old one whose bitter regret was that
he had not one, and that his only
pleasure in life was to walk about his
huge works. He knew little indeed
about sport, of art, or literature, or
music; his life had found no time in
it to cultivate these, and in hi3 old
age he had found out the mistake of
this. He may have been an exception,
but anyway he was an example. We

Deputy  Health'Minister  Tells  How

Canada'has established a new system for examination of immigrants
in Britain and on the continent, Dr. J.

Health Department,. told the parliamentary committee investigating immigration matters.
Examinations, he declared, are now
conducted by Canadian doctors at im-

on the continent. In Creat Britain,
334 examination stations nojv exist
and since February 15 about 12,000
examinations have becn made resulting in the rejection of some 500 intending immigrants. There are 20 doctors and they are supplied with automobiles to visit the various stations.
The medical examination ��� for persons desirous of coming to Canada
under the assisted passage scheme
had not always becn satisfactory. In
order to improve conditions, Dr. Amyot said, Canada, in company with
other countries, named a roster of
doctors who would examine immigrants in Great Britain.
The immigrants, however, did "not

Dutch Engineer Is Disillusioned
After Visit To Russia
The Conservative press of Holland
is rejoicing in the repudiation of Communism by the Dutch engineer Boars,
known at the time of his expulsion
from the Dutch East Indies last September as "the firebrand of Java,"
where he had been the head of the
subversive Soviet movement.
After his expulsion he went to Russia in order to learn at first hand
the political'and social principles he
had been advocating. This visit,
judged from the point of view of a
long article' he has written 'for the
Nieuwe Rotterdamsche Courant of

not disposed to speak, but on repeatec
urging he rose, scanned the face o,
each juryman for a moment, and said.
'"Gentlemen* of the jury: The bes
friend a man has may turn against
him and become his enemy. His son
or daughter that he has reared with
loving care may prove ungrateful.
Those who are nearest and dearest tc
us those whom we trust with our happiness and our good name, may become
' traitors to their faith: The money tha.
a man has he may lose. It flies away
from him perhaps when lie; needs it
most. A man's reputatiqn may be sacrificed in a moment of ill-considered
action. The people who are prone to
fall on their knees to do us honor when
success is with-us, may be the first to
throw the stone of malice when failure
settles its cloud upon our heads.
��� "The one absolutely unselfish friend
that man can have in this selfish world,
the one that never deserts him, the
one that never proves ungrateful, or
treacherous, is his dog. A man's dog
stands by him in prosperity and m
poverty; in health and in sickness. He
will sleep on the cold ground where the
wintry winds blow and the snow drives
fiercely, if only he may beo near his
master's side. He will kiss the hand
that has no food to offer; he will lick

higher privilege than that of accompanying him, to guard against danger,
to fight against his enemies. And when

were wiping their eyes. The jury filed
out, but, soon entered with a verdict of
$500 for the plaintiff whose dog was
shot, and it was said that some of the
jury wanted to hang the defendant.
The government's pledged word to
the British Columbia legislature and
the electors of the province was given
before the house prorogued that if a
satisfactory sale of the Pacific Great
Eastern Railway could not be effected
the line would be completed from Vancouver to Prince George. Oppositions
are not prone to accept promises from
any government; so .the present instance is taken as a special tribute to
the integrity of Premier MacLean. He
has stated several times publicly and
through the press that.the government
is endeavoring earnestly to dispose of
the line to advantage. Failing in that,
the line must be finished. ���
This stand has met with general approval, even from those who in the
past have claimed that the line was not
necessary. But as they have seen
million pilled upon million, year after
year, they have accepted' that an unfinished railway is of no value to anyone. As the situation now stands,
either the government or private capital, or one. of the large railway "companies will put the Pacific-'Great Eastern Railway on its feet, to the great
benefit of the entire province.   '

The sound condition of British Columbia's finances was clearly shown in
the legislature last week-by Hon. J. D.
MacLean, minister of finance. He
stated that by the end of 1929 all British Columbia's debenture borrowings
will be covered by full sinking fund
provisions. This, he showed, will further strengthen- the province's position
at the head of all the provinces of

said, toward' the development not only
of machines: which will sell almost
every conceivable product automatically, but towards the invention of devices
which will' perform some type of
