Beaverdell Night
Beaverdell Night (Friday, Feb.
18th) w>ll lpng be, remembered in
Greenwood as an evening of great
enjoyment. Many citizens of
that town came in on the train,
along with,their hockey team and
orchestra. The game was called
for 8 o'clock, the Beaverdellites
facing the .locals. The largest
crowd of the season was on hand.
a good number coming from Midway, Ferry and other surrounding
towns. It was the best match
played here this year ahd resulted
in a 6 all tie. The play was very
clean and was fast and interesting
from start 'to t finish. "Morrison
opened the scoring for the visitors
after 4 minutes of play, evened 2
minutes later by Puddy for the
locals. This' closed the scoring
for this period with the score 1-1.
The second period started with
the home boys bombarding their
opponents next, and in 5 minutes
Crowley scored" for- Greenwood.
The. visitors them made a great
effort and before the'gong sounded
Morrison put Beaverdell in the
lead by getting two goals.
Both teams started- the third
period at a great pace, and in
2minutes Morrison tallied for the
visitors, while 2 minutes later
Puddy netted one for the locals.
Shortly afterwards Morrison got
two more for B'dell. -Greenwood
then got busy and Puddy and
Crowley scored and a few seconds
before time was called Taylor
made a spectacular rush and tied
the .score. Both teams left the
ice content to leave the ~score 6-6.
Dr. Francis gave entire satisfaction as referee.

Has Three Cougar Pups
Gordon Haskell, of Rock Creek,
was in town on Tuesday and collected $160 on four large cougar
skins. On his last hunt he captured three cougar pups and
brought them into Rock Creek.
They are very -playful and act
like kittens.
The capturing of these young
aniirials will greatly help to save
the deer, as according to a well-
known trapper, who studied
animal life, says that when the
young cougars are trained to hunt
they kill fawns, not only for food,
but to get expert at the game.  ���
Stanley Robb of Beaverdell,

that he shot on China creek.

Throughout >Vestern Canada people are now eagerly looking forward to
"the breakup of winter and are beginning to plan for, the season's/ work which
lies ahead. The farmer is giving thought to the crops he will sow, arranging
to overhaul his machinery, looking into the matter of good, clean seed, and
is becoming impatient for the frost to come out of the ground in order that ho
.may begin turning over the furrows. The farm wife is beginning to think of
:her poultry and.vegetable garden. In tlie cities and towns plans are being laid,
for building operations, civic oflicials are preparing programmes, of improvements, men and women are studying seed catalogues and dreaming of their
.gardens lo be.   Everywhere, everybody is looking forward.

'There is a hopeful feeling everywhere. ���
It is believed that 1927 will be-a year of opportunity, although nothing in
the nature of a '-boom".is expected .or desired.. Western people have surely
learned thc lesson that substantial, permanent progress can only rest on
���strong foundations; that to'build on paper is to invite disaster. For this
reason there is danger that some people will be timid in grasping opportunities
which present themselves even though they are in a sound posi'ion to take
full advantage of thorn. Their very timidity, their lack of confidence in
themselves, or in their country, may be their own undoing. "
The lines quoted, at the opening of this article are, however; not directed
only to the attention of those who are fearful of launching out on some enter-
plan for the year's work ahead.     '
It is true today, as it has always been true, that the person who thinks he
is beaten, is beaten. The beginning of success-is the "will' to succeed;- the
determination never to acknowledge defeat. This, too, is our British birthright. Many and many a time in our Empire's history the outlook has been
dark, defeat seemed inevitable, but our people would, never admit it. and

will disappear from territory .under
the control or Great Britain. Thus,
within tho space of ninety-rour years
the'greatest menace lo freedom and
to development the world has ever
known has been swept out of th'e British Empire. It has not.been an easy
task,-'formany vested rights, treaty
reservations, and inherited privileges
had lo b'o;dealt with. But the policy
inaugurated by the British Government in the British West Indies in
1S33 had been faithfully and steadily
pursued ever since. Today no slavery exists beneath die British flag, or
in British protectorates. Various
forms of compulsory industrial servico aro still ln vogue in far-off outposts and in certain African territories, but Uiese arc dying out, and with
the spread of oducalion and tho introduction of broader, privileges, Ihey
.will become obsolete. It is a thing
concerning which Unions may be well
���content. The march of��justico and
liberty may be slow, but it is irresistible.���The Montreal Star.

Russians Receive Meagre Pay
Dare Not Ask More
For nearly ten ��� years Russia
been under the "dictatorship of the
proletariat," but not greatly to the
advantage of the proletariat; it
seems. A bulletin issued by the International Labor Bureau at Geneva
shows the rates of wages received
in Soviet Russia. Last summer Russian workmen were gelling 2.30
chcrvonetz roubles a day. Before tlu-
war a rouble was worth a little'more
than half a dollar; it is worth much
less now. But oven if the Russian
workers were receiving as much as
a dollar a day that would be meagre
pay indeed wheii it is considered thai'
the prices of all the necessities of
life have advanced enormously.
But they must not demand more.
It is dangerous to do that. In reply
to a deputation of trade unionists
who went to him begging for more
pay, M. Tomslcy, of the Soviet council and.president of the trade,unions,
told them that they-must be patient
and wait���that- wages could not bo
raised until general economic conditions lm&rove. ' And he added that
the general council would deal very
severely with union groups lhat did
not accept the decision of the council and the Soviet government, in the

Influence    of    Canada    in     League
Increasing    Says    Viscount
Canada exercises    a<  posilion    of
growing importance in lho League of
Nations, ITia Excellency    the    Governor-General,  Viscount   Willingdon,
told  tho    annual    meeling    of    the
League  of -Nations  Socielv in  Canada, held, at Oltawa.   Froni what he
had seen of the League, he said, tbe
Bri I ish Empire and   its   representative's hold a great   position   in ��� the
council of the League, "and Canada
is one ot the principal parts of tho
Empire,  and   her  delegates,  as   she
rises in-nationhood, will havo moro
and,more influence."
His Excellency emphas.'zed the
value of the League, in thai, il made
.it possible for foreign ministers' of
different nations to get together,
"and a few hours' conversation is
worth ninny months of the exchange
of dispatches."
S.'r Robert Borden, past- president
told the mooting that he wanted to
emphasize tlio fact "that upon every
one or us' rests a direct responsibility'
for the peace of the world. The status
of the'delegates lo Geneva depends
upon a strong, virile public opinion
behind them,, and I believe Canadians
are'realizing ihis more and, more."
The president,. Sir George Foster,
slated that one pf .the things which
made him hopeful for 'the future was
the amount of moderaiion and caution shown by Croat Britain in moving in the perplexing Chinese problem, stating it was the-influence or
about such a condition of affairs.

ou a problem   with   deep   intensity
for days at a time, and when h,. ha'si

This  power  of. concentration "was
a. characteristic thai caught the attention of members of the war cabinet. I remember.,hearing   the   late
Sir James Lougheed former Minister
of the Department of Soldiers' Civil
Bo-establishment  say  "Massey  is  a

has a trained mind, but he has tact
and  Iho ability to unite  tho efforts
of those around him -to an unusual
degree.   I believe ho will go far." '
Another iaclor in his success has

According to Tradition Beefsteak Was
Discovered  by Roman Senator   ���
Tradition  has it  thai   tlm  ttm-an
Emperor Trajan ordered' Lucius Piau-
cus, a senator, to aid in the cLuly of
offering sacrifices   to    Jupiter. ^The
senator thought that the work was
beneath  hl5j  dignity.   Ue refused  to
obey, but was dragged to the altar.
While the ox that was sacrificed to
the heathen god was being roasted,
the senator in contempt, tore off a
piece ofthe meat and ate il.   To his
surprise it was very palatable. He cut
other slices and broiled thein for the
slaves who were present.   From that
moment the Romans   began   to   like
"beefsteak," and before long the old
styles of Roman cookery gave way to
the Plaucus style.
It is said, thai the sirloin of beef
owes its name to Charles II. King of
England. At dinner one day ho was
so. much pleased with a piece of beef
that he asked the name of it. .,
"It is the loin," was the reply.
"Then, said the king, "I will knight
it; henceforth it shall be Sir Loin!"

The death occurred in Victoria
on Thursday, Feb. 17th, erf John
Joseph Caulfield, a former pioneer
resident of Greenwood. In the
passing of Mr. Caulfield removes
a well known person who was
connected with the early history
of our town. He was in the
hardware business, was interested
in mining and owned considerable
property here at that time; aliso
conducting the Pioneer Hotel in
partnership with C. J. McArthur.
This hotel was razed a number of
years ago to make place for the
Federal building.
In mentioning the death The
Daily Colonist, Victoria, says:
"After an illness' lasting several
months Mr. John Joseph Caulfield
passed awav on Thurday at his home,
321 Quebec'Street.
Mr. Caulfield was born at Oshawa,
Ont, in 1857 and went to Winnipeg,
Man., while a mere youth. In Winnipeg he engaged in a mercantile business, which he also ..followed in
Brandon, where he resided later. Prom
Brandon he went to Virden, Man., in
1884, where he entered into partnership
with with E. A. Holmes in the grain
They erected an elevator at Har-
grave. In 1898 Mr. Caulfield moved to
the Boundary, when that district was
obtaining prominence through, mining
developments. Opening business in
the hardware line, at Greemvood, he
soon became actively identified with
every movement for community betterment and was deservedly popular. His
business was later merged in*that of
the Russell, Law, Caulfield Co.
It was in Greenwood that Mr. Caulfield became interested in mining-. He
was the first president of the Providence Mining Co., and a member of
several mining syndicates.
When he came to Victoria in 1907
and purchased a residence in the James
Bay section of the city this interest in
mining remained keen and he associated himself with numerous ventures-
in the way'of prospecting- and development syndicates, At the. time of his
death he was vice-president of the
Gabbro Copper Mines, Ltd., and a
director of the Silver Tip Mining
Development Co.
He was possessed of a very genial,
kindly disposition and in his business
dealings w.is the very soul of honor.
His many friends will learn of his
death with fhe greatest regret.
He is survived by his widow, two
nieces and two nephews. The nieces
are Mrs. Jack Long, of Toronto, and
Mrs. Charles Pierce, of Oshawa. The
nephews are Rev. Father Frank Caulfield, of Toronto, and Mrs. P. J. Caulfield, of Cleveland, Ohio."
The funeral took place from
Hayward's B.C. Funeral Chapel,
Victoria,- on Monday at 8:45 a.m.,
proceeding to St. Andrew's Cathedral where service^and mass were
conducted by Rev. Father Deeley.
The following acted as pallbearers:

His Majesty's Choristers Tour Canada
Coys <-
Tphe official visit to Canada of thc gentlemen of His Majesty's
Free Chapel of St.. George, in Windsor Castle, and
the boy choristers of Westminster Abbey, accompanied by thc
Very Rev. the Dean pf Windsor, Dr. A.V.lhiillic chaplain to the
King; Rev. Edmund H. Fellowcs, director of thc. choir of
���St. George's Chapel; and Sydney H. Nicholson, organist of
Westminster Abbey, and Master of the Choristers, is made
with the special approval of His Majesty (he King. The
visit of the choir which is now touring Canada from Frei.e-
ricton to Vancouver and return, on the All-Red C.P.R. route
is more than a mark of inter-Empire courtesy; it is a gesture
that should do much to * help the fuller realization of possessions common to Canada ancl Great Britain.
The choir is. here under the auspices of thc National
Council of Education, which since its inception in 1919 has
continually emphasized the importance of the place of music
in Education. This tour is essentially a part of thc Council's programme designed to stimulate public interest in
music as one of the most powerful influences in thc life of
. both the individual and the nation.
The Choristers from Westminster Abbey and St. George's
Chapel, to sing their way through Canada without fee or
recompense of any kind except thc applause thcy will gain,
have a history going back to a day when fhe great-grandfather
of Columbus was a humble Genoese, watching boats sail out
and believing that if they went too far thcy might topple over
the edge of the world. So Canada must feel comparatively
young in the knowledge that the soft-footed Indian-was still
emperor of the prairie, when the choristers first sung to thc
order of Edward III in the chapel of St George at Windsor.
The glory of the Dominions is in thcir future, but England's greatest glory is in the long story that runs back through
the centuries, and that story is told ajmost completely in thc
histories of Westminster Abbey and St. George's Chapel of
which these visitors are the ambassadors.
It is interesting to think of thc three parallel scenes.
Edward III, creating the Order of the Garter in St. George's
Chapel, Columbus still unborn and his great-grandfather
perhaps sewing sails in the seaport of Genoa, Canada still in
the haze of tlie undiscovered. Ancl while these two latter
scenes change dramatically, thc choristers of St. George's
have still gone on with their services, symbolizing the chivalry
and honor of the twenty-six Knights of the Garter. The
Gentlemen of St." George's and the boys of Westminster
visiting Canada number twenty in all, the eight choristers or
lay clerks of the Chapel at AVindsor are those who sing the
evening and morning services in the chapel; and in the "more
private services associated with the life of the Crown and the
Order of the Garter. Thcy also provide the music in the
Private Chapel when Their Majesties are in residence at
Windsor Castle.
The Dean of Windsor, Dr. A. V. Baillie, who will give
lectures during the tour, on Windsor Castle, the Chapel of
St. George ancl Westminster Abbey, is one of the outstanding
figures in thc ecclesiastical life of England. He is the godson of Queen Victoria and a nephew of Lord Elgin, former
Governor-General of Canada. In addition to being chaplain to the King, he is also Registrar of the Order of the
Dr. Edmund H. Fellowes will lecture on Elizabethan and
English Church music. He is the foremost living authority
on music of the Tudor period, as witness his monumental
edition of the English Madrigals which he has completed in
36 volumes.
_ As organist of Westminster Abbey, the choirs of Mr.
Nicholson havc been an inspiration, not only to the habitual
worshippers at the^ Abbey, but also to. the vast body of
visitors to that shrine from all over the'world. He'is the
author of "British Songs for British Boys." During this
tour he will conduct"a number, of concerts, especially for
Scouts ancl Guides in which Scout music will largely figure.''
Canadians are therefore given an unique opportunity to
hear the best of English church and Old English part music,
while a standard of excellence is reached in choral singing,
that is probably unexcelled ia any part of the world.
