Most   of  the crime and
poverty is caused by booze
and ignorance.
What will it profit a man
if he gains the whole world,
and does not see a game of
hockey in Greenwood?
When a boy John D. Rockefeller made his first stake

the west some of us made our
first steak shooting buffalo.
Wb received a letter the
other day asking us what we
raised in Greenwood. In
reply we stated' that we
raised copper,
the ante, railway ties, babies
hockey, Cain and once in
a while a little hell with
Grand Forks.
Some people, with more or
less of a mental mud formation have called us an infidel,
because we do not swallow
all the dope that is heated
by theological spoons. All
people are infidels except to
those who entertain the same
religious faith. However in
spite of all remarks the fact
shines out, clear and bright,
that the editor of the leading
excitement, contributes five
times as much to the churches
of Greenwood as any other
individual in the hockey metropolis.   Let us pay.

We never dream of trying to get a,

as we alter our cravings that we
make any genuine progress in culture or growth in character,

A mast affecting little tragedy
was enacted a abort time ago on

was sheep hunting on his way in
and had j-hot two and was making
his way down to them when he
was caught in a snowslide and suffocated. When fehe news reached
tie camp the recorder travelled to
tlie scene, found the body and sent
it on to McCarthy. The dramatia
foature oi fehe accident was the fact
that a letter arrived in the meantime for the young man with the
news that his grandmother bad

Insect Injuries Increase
As a result of recent scientific investigations of insect ravages in

the same with Mr. Rockefeller. Sir Wilfrid, however,

damage done by insects last summer far exceeded that done by fire,
In. Eastern Canada the bark beetle
on. the pine, the budworm on the>
spruce and fehe saw-fly on the larch
bave done so much injnry to tbe
forests that special legislation for
their control has been passed by
the Federal and Provincial govern-
taente. Indeed, as a result of tbe
continued ravages of its worst in-
sect enemy (the iBige larch saw-fly)
the larch, or "tamarack" is gradually becoming commercially extinct
ia Canada.
The present plethora of insect
pests in the forests of Canada is
due largely to fehe recent ravages
of   forest fires,   which  killed or
weakened the standing timber and
fcfons provided vast feeding grounds
(or. these insects.   It is for this
.reason that forest fires are so much
dreaded by timber-owners, for it is
not often that the fire itself destroys the merchantable value of
the timber,   Usually ife is the wood
boring insects which follow in the
wake of such fires that make tbe
timber unfit for lumber and have a
large share in causing fehe millions
(Oif dollars loss which the nation
Bniiers annually.
To attempt the wholesale control of the insects themselves would
Ew a hopeless, task, but by eliminating fire damages, wide-spread
insect-damage may also be automatically prevented, for healthy
trees are not susceptible to attack.
By segregating forest reserves, on
which tho percentage of fire loss
daring fehe last summer was smaller than on any similarly protected
areas in America, the Forestry
Branch of the Department of the
Interior is taking a leading part in
(.be control of insect ravages.

of their fellows. The old maid proffers her
sister advice upon the business of her husband,
and any old bachelor can give a father advice
as to the rearing of his boys. The man who

country, and people who cannot be trusted to
drive the ducks to water will explain to the
world's wisest how to get to heaven. The
man who could not run a hand organ if it was

own business. Yes, and a man who generally
cannot/run anything else on earth knows how
to rurm newspaper, run it in the ground.
The local newspaper is indispensible to any
town that has any get-up about it. It is one
of the necessaries of the farmer and the business man. It puts the ball in motion when
any new enterprise is proposed that would be
a benefit to the town and the community in
which it is published. It keeps a record of
the happenings of the town and the surrounding country, and is read a thousand miles away ,
by persons who are hunting a home and a
place to invest their money. When a man gets
mad it takes a "cussing" as coolly as anybody
but hews straight to the line just the same.
There are thousands of reasons why a town
should support a newspaper, but the greatest
of all is because it pays well to support it.

best music
To most of us the chance to hear human playing
of good music comes infrequently. Only in the
great cities are the appetites of the music-hungry
satisfied. Even then one can hear hut a small
part of all the worth while concerts.
Fortunately (or those who love the masters of the past, and who
have the judgment to recognize in present day composers the
masters of the future, there is the Edison
Phonograph. It is worthy of Wagner, of
Bach, of Puccini. The clear, sweet .tone,"
remarkable in its purity, is simply a translation of human music into your own home.
Unless you have heard the newest Edisons,
you have no conception of their wonderful
mellow quality. You never realized that
such beauty, could be applied to sound.
Ask your Edison dealer to play one of
the Blue Amberol Records���then you will
know that the whole world of good music

To children the presence of intelligent friends;, in the

Mark the young man who is coarse and disrespectful to
his mother. No roseate pathway can be hers who shall
sustain to him the relation of wife. Not the happiest will
be the lot of those who shall come to be his children. Not
to be envied is the neighborhood, even, in which he must
be reckoned as a citizen. It does not matter what the
mental status of that mother is, how old, how bent,
how decrepit, the man to whom she is mother owes
to her gentleness, kindness, tenderness and consideration.
Did she fall back and did the children with superior advantage pass her in the race? But think of her toil and trials
her devotion and denial, her mind and the years that she
gave, that her children might derive the benefit. Think
of her sacrifice���no wonder if she fell behind, with her
heart in, her home, in the buds that were hers. There is
.no rank, no station, no condition that may exempt a manly
man from a kind regard for a mother.

In this country, the grandest on earth in most respects,
we are not sufficiently instructed in the art of manners.
We are rather gruff, and sometimes unapproachable.
Manners do not make the man, as the proverb says, but
manners make the man much more agreeable. A man may
be noble in his heart, true in his dealings, virtuous in his
conduct, and yet unmannerly. A gentleness of manners
gives the finish to the true gentleman. By true manners
we do not mean-ettiquette. This is only a coventional set
of rules adopted by what is called "good society," and
many of the rules of etiquette are the essence of rudeness,
Etiquette does not permit genteel people to recognize in
the street a man with a shabby coat, though he be their
brother. Etiquette is a liar in its "not at home" ordered
to be told by servants to callers at inconvenient seasons.
Good manners includes hiany,requisites, but they- chiefly
consist-in. politeness,* courtesy-and kindness. . They7cancot
be taught by rule,' but they may be taught by example.

1    BOUNDARY fflES    ��
The British Columbia Copper
company has issued a circular to
its shareholders announcing fehe
plan which has been under consideration foT some time for financing] its development work and
other obligations. It provides for
the organization of a new company
under the laws of Virginia to be
known as the Canada Copper corporation, Limited, with an authorized capifeaL of $5,000,000, its
shares have a par value of 85 each.
The new company will also
authorise an issue of $1,000,000
10-year 6 per cent.' convertible debentures to he dated April 1, 1914,
and to be convertible at any time
on or before maturity for tbe stock
of the new company at par on tbe
proposed basis of capitalization.
The debentures will ba callable by
the Canada company at any time
on or after three years from their
date on 90 days' notice at 110 and
accrued interest.
So long as any of the debentures
remain outstanding the Canada
company will not create any lien
on its assets which shall be prior
to the debentures. A sinking fund
which will be applicable to retirement of the debentures will have,
to tbe extent of that fund, preference over dividends in any year.
The Canada company will offer
to all shareholders of the British
Columbia company the right to exchange their stock for that of the
new corporation share for share
upon the condition that tbe holders
of the old stock shall subscribe and
pay at par for the convertible debentures to the extent of $1 in debentures for each share of old
stock exchanged. At present there
are outstanding 501,709 shares! of
old stock. '
Payments are to be made as follows: One fourth at tbe time of
depositing the stock on or before
March 15, 1014, and the balance
on three equal instalments on
April, May and June 15. Payments in full may be anticipated at
the option of the shareholders.
It is stated in the circular that
$1,000,000 par value of the capital
stock of the new company is to be
set aside and held for the purpose
of conversion of the debentures.
By an arrangement between the
two companies the proceeds from
the sale of tbe debentures will be
loaned to the British Columbia
company, this loan to be secured
by a mortgage npon all its properties now held and to be acquired.
The purchase of _ 8600, OQCL par
value of the convertible debentures
has been underwritten at par less
an underwriting commission and
such debentures as may be taken
by tbe underwriters will carry
with them pro rata of the stock in
the Canada company. As a farther consideration for the underwriting an option has been'granted
to the bankers for one year on the
remaining $400,000 of debentures
and 200,000 shares stock,
The entire plan is conditioned
upon the deposit for exchange on
the terms set forth of not less than
51 per cent of the capital stock of
the British Columbia company on
or before March 15 next, Newman Erb, president of that corn-
replace the tonnage extracted, consequently it has been found nec-
cessary to devote the surplus earnings to the examination and exploration of new property.
This policy has resulted in the
development of a very promising
mineralized area at Copper Mountain, located approximately 12 miles
south of Princeton, B.C. This
town is 140 miles west of Greenwood and 35 miles north of tbe
International boundary on an
operating branch of the Great
Northern railway. A branch of
the Canadian Pacific railway is
now being built to Princeton also.
The ore deposits so far developed
the new properties are of  a
different nature from those of
Greenwood, being of a disseminated type from the direct smelting
of the Greenwood ores, and the
concentrates thus produced are
specially suited for smelting in connection with the Mother Lode ores
at tbe present smelting plant of the
company. As a consequences the
concentrates from Copper Mountain ores will be shipped to and
smelted at tbe present plant.
Mr. Erb informs the stockholders in the circalar that the company has so far expended approximately 8550,000 in the acqusition
and development of the- Copper
Mountain properties with the result that it has a combined area of
approximately 1,250 acres partly
owned in fee and partly under
As a resnlt of the development
work the engineers report that
there are of "reasonably assured
and probable'' ore in excess of
4,000,000 tons of an average copper content of 1.87 per cent carrying from 25c. to 50a, in gold and
silver per ton.
Mr. Erb says furthermore that
the company has expended practically all of its cash in this development work and has incurred
some floating indebtedness. Part
payments have been made, but the
point has been reached where the
financial requirements of the situation must be met promptly, and it
has been decided that this could
be best accomplished through the
organization of a new company as
outlined.���Boston Commercial.

in connection with the Moonlight
group bond. The owners of the
group, including the discoverer.
R. Fitzgerald, have decided to accept fehe ofler of 81,000,000 to be
paid one quarter down on April
1st, 1915, balance in equal instalments covering two years or
less. Assays of the Moonlight
group ore, in which are thirteen
claims, show high grade values.
The property is situated at the
head of Granite creek and is a free
milling gold proposition. The
location is in the zone of the placer
producing belt. Work will begin
in the early spring. Co.. Stevenson has handled the deal thus far
to the entire satisfaction of all concerned. The owners are all local

Deaae Creek might locate a deposit
of lode tin. While tin is generally
associated with granitic rocks, the
most probable conditions of its discovery are where such rocks are
metamorphosed to greisen and accompanied by fluorite. The most
common ore of tin is cassiterite,
which varies in color from black to
light brown, is brittle, of high

that the largest stockholders who
are represented by the board of
directors and others whom they
have been able to consult with,
have signified their approval of the
plan and their intention to deposit
their shares.
In explaining the reason for
bringing oat this plan, Mr. Erb
says that the management has
realized for several years the neces
sity of supplementing its orereserves
in order to overcome the depletion
of its present mines. In spite of
the fact that the orgpuiizatioa and
equipment have been maintained
at a high rate of efficiency, it has
been found impossible to deveiop

The ore shipments promised last
fall to be made this year during the
sleighing were no myth. Ever
since their was any snow at all
there has been teams hauling ore
to New Hazelton from the Silver
Standard and from theT Harris
mines. Mention has already been
made of a ten ear shipment from
the Silver Standard and of fehe one
car shipment from the Harris mine.
On February 7th the Silver
Standard shipped two more cars
and on the 9th another two.car lot
went to the smelter. Up to Monday night the Glen mountain property had sent to tho Trail smelter
this year four hundred and seventy-
three tonB of high grade ore. The
end is not yet. From thirty to
thirty-five tons are being brought
down daily and at fehe mine Supt.
Haskins is still taking ont ore.
Plans are' under way now for
the new development to be undertaken in the spring, or as soon as
the present shipping season is over.
On Saturday night Angus Stewart
was in town in consultation with
D. McLeod, and A. L. McHugh,
and J. W. Stewar6 ia expected here
in the near future. Upon his
arrival ife is expected that the
plans will be ready and an announcement can be made. There
will be some big work going on at

Richer than Shushanna, is tho
verdict on the new strike at O'Don-
nell's Creek, in the Atlin country,
where according to reports, which
have just reached the south, four
and five ounces to the pan have
been taken out. One letter tells of
a pan yielding $90, being washed
at Prescott and White's drift, this
being five ounces to the pan.
The sources of this information
are thoroughly reliable, being
vouched for by a prominent businessman of Vancouver, and a strike
far richer than the Shusbanna is
believed to have been made.
According to advices received
the whole population of that section of Atlin is stampeded towards
the new diggings,'applications have
also been made by the discoverers
for a post office, while prospective
storekeepers are making a move to
be the first on the ground.
News?.of this strike was first
brought south some three weeks
ago. Until the first reports could
be properly verified, it was considered premature to make any
announcement regarding the strike
especially as fehe richness of the
placer ground seemed too good to
be true.
A large number of claims have
been staked along O'Donnell's
creek, one company having no
fewer than eleven staked. Vancouver mining men are largely
interested in a number of the
Three hundred and twenty five
tons of ore from Silver Standard
mine left New Hazelton this week
for|the Trail Smelter. This was
the first_Bhipmenfe from the Silver
Standard this year. For several
weeks teams have been hauling ore
but ou account of no snow the
headway was slow. This week,
however, conditions were much
different, and every day thirty to
thirty-five tons were brought down
aud this gait will be kept up for
several weeks yet.
The value of the ore will exceed
that of last year very considerably,
as the Borting was much closer.
Assays from half of the first shipment have been received and they
give an average of 1120 per ton.
They assays from the other half
are expected almost any day now.

who died and.who was so irretrievably bad that the minister who
called to bury him couldn't think
of a single respectable thing to say.
' 'The corpse was neatly laid out
and the minister sadly considered
his eulogy. The audience fretted
during the early part of the service, wondering what the preacher
could possibly think of that would
not shock the church and somewhat near the truth, concerning
the disreputable deceased.
"Finally the minister began:
" 'My dear brethern, our dearly
beloved brother was born in Missouri, spent part of his life in
Kansas, lived later in Arkansas,
and die in Texas. So, my dear
brethern, we may congratulate
ourselves that while oar beloved
