away the care and tribulations of
life and are a benefit to all.
Communication
Greenwood, B.C. March 2nd
To The Editob,
Gbeenwood Ledge.
Deab Sir:
(Be Greenwood Hockey)
I trust you will allow me space
in your valuable paper to bring to
the attention of the citizens of
Greenwood and also to all those interested in hockey in the surround'
ing district the question as to
whether it is their intention in
future to support a similar aggregation of players as that produced by
the local club this season.
������-: Opinions have been freely, ex
pressed that in spite of our unfortunate position in the league, the
supporters of the game have been
well repaid and hockey of this
nature has had a material bearing
in stimulating the prosperity of the
town, if this is the case and I am
convinced myself that it is so,
there is no reason why we should
not arrange for the next season
players.
Unfortunately professional hockey cannot exist alone oh the enthusiasm of its snpporters and unless they are willing to contribute
liberally to its financial existence,
it will be impossible to undertake
HuB-work,----".- =--���7 "���--'- ���
I have been requested to call a
General Meeting for the purpose of
discussing the question as well as
submitting the financial statement.
I trust all those who are interested will find it convenient to attend as a great deal depends on the
enthusiasm shown as to whether
Greenwood can support a hockey
team or not.*
The executive wonld also appreciate an early response from those,
who are still in arrears for this
season's subscriptions and skating
tickets.
Thanking you for your kindness,
I remain,
Youas Truly
F. W. McLAlNE,
President Greenwood Hockey Club.

Horace was a very enthusiastic
hockey player, and his enthusiasm, as often happens, had developed in an extraordinary (way
since he had been elected captain
of the team.
One afternoon he was talking to
his sister's best friend���Lucyfi,
and holding forth on the merits of
various players and the prospects
of the season in general.
"By tbe way," he said. "Do
you remember that friend of mine
who had tea with us last Sunday?"
"You mean Fisher, don't yon?
Yea, I remember him."
''Well, he's going to be oar best
man scon!"
"Ob, Horace! How sweet of
you to think of proposing like
that!'' answered she, as her head
dropped on to his shoulder.

Live Now
WE hare plenty of scenery
in  B.C,,   but   are  short on
fresh eggs.
What happens when an
irresistible force collides
with an immovable body?
Throwing mud at your
neighbors is a favorite pastime in small commuuities.
The hockey season is over
with the exception of paying
the bills,
March came in like a
la-nb, and it will probably
go out like a kitten.
The desire to get rich
quick keeps many people
poor.
The season for taking
sulphur and molasses has
arrived.
Every man has an ideal,
although he seldom reaches
it.
Thinking Themes
"It's a fine day," says the traditional Englishman, "let's go out
and kill something."
The wild beast in us demands
something to pursne and slay.
Even those who have no taste
for slaughtering game have somewhat of the hunter lingering in
qhem, which one finds on looking
closely.
There are little corner cages in
all our minds where we keep bloodthirsty thoughts against certain
classes
I had always regarded Mormons
for instance, as proper food for the
exterminating sword, and was
amazed, one time when I went
among them, to find them as a rule
as genial and human as those of
my own sect.
In fact, human nature is about
the same in Fez or Tokio, and
when you come to know men you
see that the difference is only
veneer.
Yet the Southerner keeps a little bloody thought for the negro,
the Gentile for the Jew, the Christian for the Tnrk, the white man
for the yellow, the North Sidere
for the South Siders.
It is wholesome for any man to
think that under another man's
circumstances he might be as bad
or worse.
"There goes my wicked self!"
Forty years ago there came a
brilliant, eloquent charmer into
public life. His name was Robert
Ingersoll. Had he lived in the
Sixteenth Century he would have
been Milton's dearest foe.
He was not afraid of the Unknown. He had the faith of Darwin, the courage of Martin Luther,
the enthusiasm of Dante. It was
said of him that he laughed the
devil out of court, and that his
tears of pity put ont the fires of
hell.
He held up to ridicule barbaric
myths and the terrors of the bogy
man, so that even the most conservative smiled. The warmth of
his heart and the generosity of his
mind relaxed the rigor mortis of
hands that held the bonds of orthodox minds.
"Live, and let others live!" said
Ingersoll. It is more righteous to
give joy than to punish sinners.
The past is dead. Let it bury its
dead. Tear down the bastile.
There is nothing to fear. No one
can save you but yourself. No
one can harm you but yourself.
Be free!   Live, love, laugh, play."
We are heirs of the ages. All
that is past, all the people who
have taught, all the people who
have learned, have made this time,
this opportunity, this moment,
possible for us.
The fact that we are expending,
during this fiscal year, seventy-
two per cent of our aggregate
revenue in preparing for wars,
leaving only twenty-eight per cent
of our revenue available to meet
all other governmental expenditures, including internal improvements, the erection of public buildings, the improvement of rivers
and harbors, and the conservation
of our natural resonrces, is to my
mind appaling. It should arrest
the attention of the American people, and not only cause them to
demand a decrease in these unnecessary war expenditures, but
also prompt them to aid in every
way possible in the creation of
public sentiment that would favor
the organization of an international
federation whose decisions and
actions in the peaceful settlement
of controversies between nations
would be recognized and accepted
as the final determination thereof.
If tbis were done, it wonld not
necessarily moan the entire abandonment of armies and navies, but
it would so far remove the possibility of international wars as to
make unnecessvry the expenditure
of tbe stupendous sums now being
collected from the people in the
form of taxes and expended for the
purpose of maintaining armed
peace.���Hon. J. A. Tawney.
The other day a teacher in a
school showed a little girl a picture
of a fan, and asked her what it
was. The little girl didn't appear
to know. What does your mother
do to keep cool in hot weather?
asked the teacher. "Drink beer!"
was 1-he prompt reply.
Cloak of Religion
The Dervish as a rule live in
utter squalor. Many of them have
no clothes at all from the day of
their birth until their death. They
smear their bodies in mud made
from wood ashes, and twist their
matted hair into a sort of turban.
Some of them travel, not by camel
or by foot, but by turning handsprings, which they will keep np
for hours at a time, and many are
known to have travelled hundreds
of miles in this remarkable fashion.
Whether they are really religious,
or merely assume the cloak of religion to impose upon the devout
Mohammedans upon whom they
live in times of peace, is more or
less a mystery. The fact that
they do not work, and that hundreds of them make their living by
the sale of noxious drugs, does not
bear out the theory of a devout if
mistaken fanaticism. Whatever
may be their character, they are
ever ready to seize the opportunity
of robbing and killing a Christian.
In times of peace they have to<
work more steathily, but when
war breaks oat or the country is
not properly protected their crimes
become more glaring.
Dentists in Hades
An evangelist was exhorting his
hearers to flee from the wrath to
come. "I warn you," he thundered, "that there will be weeping
and wailing and gnashing of
teeth!"
At this moment an old woman
in the gallery stood up. "Sir,"
she shouted, "I have no teeth."
"Madam," returned the evangelist severely "they will be provided."
Deadliest Game Alive
Sandy was having his first taste
of life in the African forests. Borrowing a gun, he Bet off one day in
search of game, A little later his
companions spied in the distance
Sandy running at full speed for
home, with a huge lion behind
him, gaining at every step.
Quick quick, Jock!" he cried,
"open the door. I'm bringing him
home alive."
dred miles of us?"
"Dunno, but this won't be no
scrub hangin.' I also want some
b'ar's grease for my hair, and I
wan to be buried under that tree
down whar the Yuba trail cuts
in."
"B'ar's grease! How we goin'
to get it?" demanded the judge.
"And don't you think this crowd
is going to lug yer dead body three
miles to plant it? Jim, ye hain't
playin' us far. Why can't ye
take things as they be?
"It's my haugin', ain't it?"
asked Jim.
"Of course."
"I'm the deeply injured party 1
reckon?"
"Yaas, that's so."
"Wall, then, I want things my
way. I want the bar'l ��� which will
be kicked from under me to be a
whiskey bar'l. I ai_'t goin' to
step from no pork barrel into
eternity. And I want ye to send
back to Illinoy fur my brother-inlay. He alius said I'd be hung,
and I want him yere to see the
fun. And I wan't to know how
my grave's to be fixed up, and
what's going to be said on the
head-board."
"Prisoner," said the Judge,
after looking him over, "ain't ye
playin' this crowd low down?"
"I'm a-playin' my own band."
was the retort.
"This yere case was left to the
joory brung ye in guilty, but as
Jedge of this court I'm goin' to
make a change, Jim Trueman, we
won't hang ye."
"Butl've rights."
VNo use, Jim; ye've got to go.
This yere camp o' Golden Flats
hangs a man for fun and not for
hard work. It does it to obleege,
and not out of rights in the case.
I thought I knowed ye before, but
I didn't. Year' a blamed mean
and over partickler kuss and this
crowd can be jes as mulish as ye
are'. The hangin' is off, and if ye
don't leave camp within two hours
we" roll ye down hill in a bar'l."
Jim growled, and kicked and
quoted law, but tho boys were
firm, and at sundown Golden Flats
knew him no more.
The Preacher
%Z<^~l~Z~Z~tt~l"tt~Z"l~Z~Z~Z^
Last eve I sought the church
and heard a gifted pastor preach
the   Word.   He  talked   of  men
whose days were over two thousand
years ago or more.   He talked of
kings    whose   bones   were  dust,
whose sceptres were reduced to rust
so long ago their stories seem like
fragments of   a   summer   dream.
He said no word of  those   who
strive in this old  world,  intense,
alive, who fight their battles every
day, obscurely, in their feeble way.
I'd just as soon be in the dark concerning Father Noah's ark; I care
not  for   the   tents   of   Baal,    or
Joseph's corn, or Joanah's whale;
I want  to hear my pastor talk
about the people on this  block,
whose lives are full of Btings and
smarts'   whose   problems    often
break their  hearts.     I'd   rather
learn some  way  to  cheer  some
hopeless toiler struggling here, and
learn how Pharaoh blew his dough
about   five  thousand years  ago.
The   dust   of   kings  in   ancient
ground is worth a half a cent a
pound; and Ashnr's widows' tears
were dried before old Julius Caesar died; the things  of which my
pastor talks are dead as Adam's
brindled ox,  but   all around   us
there are cries and wringing hands
and weeping eyes.    He'll have to
get his text on straight,  and bring
his    gospel     up-to-date. ��� Walt
Mason.

THOROUGHLY  RENOVATED AND SPECIALLY
ADAPTED FOR COMMERCIAL TRADE
To achieve success in any business undertaking, you must have
certain essential elements present.
One is opportunity, but opportunity does not always mean success.
Another thing yon must have is
ability and integrity, but ability
and integrity, with opportunity,
mean nothing unless you also have
financial power. And when you
have opportunity, and ability, and
integrity, and character, 'and
money, why, then yonr problem is
a simple one and success is assured.
���W. E. Robertson.
Too Mean to Hang
No one at Golden Flats suspected Jim Trueman of being an
over-particular man and willing to
upset the routine of things until he
killed Abner Parks and had been
sentenced to be hanged. He probably didn't mean to kill Parks
when he hurled a rock at him, but
death resulted, the jury said he
was guilty, and Judge Watkins
rose and observed:
"Jim, it's a hangin case. You've
bin with us along time, and you've
got heaps of friends in camp, and
we'll leave this mostly to you.
When d'ye want to hang!"
"On b fnjll moon and at midnight." replied Jim, who seemed
to have already laid out his programme.
"Shoo! That's three weeks
away, and you can't ask us to turn
out at midnight and fool around
for an hour."
"But I do. And I want seven
men to walk ahead oi me and sing
a sad song as wo march. Then I
want to be hung in a white shirt."
"How kin we do it, Jim, bein' _    !_*���__��_��

On the Face of It
The editor received this letter
from a youth:
"Kindly tell me why a girl always closes her eyes when a fellow
kisses her."
The editor replies:
"If you will send us your photograph we may be able to tell you
the reason."
It is no compliment when a woman says, 'Oh all men arealike."
From the States comes the story
of how a statue of George Washington, was approached by an interested American.
"I think you will agree with
me, sir," said the American, "that
he was a great and good man. A
lie never passed his lips."
"Weel," said the Scot, "I
s'pose he talked through his nose
like the rest of ye."

GO TO WORK.
. Young man, go to work! There is no time to be idle
now. You must carve out your own way if it is ever successfully carved. You must carve out your own way
through energy, perseverance and pluck. Labor is honorable and the ignoble are those who will not work. Again
we would reiterate, young man, go to work. While ten
men'watch for chances, one man makes a chance. While
ten men wait for something to turn up, one turns something up;.so while ten fail, one succeeds ond is called a
man, of luck, the favorite of fortune. Luck and fortune is
the result of honest endeavor, work and toil,   and if  you
would succeed, go to work.
���'' ������       *     *     *
There is no happiness in life, there  is   no   misery  like
that growing out of the dispositions which  consecrate  or
desecrate the home.    Home should be so truly home  that
the weary, tempted heart could turn to it anywhere on the
dusty highway  of life  and receive light  and strength.
What a blessing it is when weary with care and burdened
with Sorrow, to have a home to which we can go,   and
there in the midst of friends we love, forget our troubles
and dwell in peace  and quietness.     Home is the chief
school of human virtue.   Its responsibilities, joys, sorrows,
smiles, tears, hopes and solicitudes form the chief interest
of human life. *
'...���������������-���������*      *    *
Sometimes a person's tongue gets them into trouble,
watch the tongue; it is your tongue, it belongs to you/ and
is the only one for which you are responsible. Your
neighbor's tongue may need care also, but that, is his
business: this is yours to see to.. Watch your .tongue; it
needs watching. It is a fire���watch it. It is the helm
which guides the vessel. Let.the Helmsmen keep wide
awake. It can bless or it can curse; it can poison or heal;
it can pierce hearts or blight hopes; it can sow discord or
separate chief friends. Watch your tongue, no one but
y 011 can take care -of that  tongue.    Your  neighbors may
wish they could bridle it, but they can't do it,
.-���'','   ' i * ���   *"���*���'.'
We avoid these aches and bad memories of the past by
striving to niake the most of our friends while we have
them with us. If we have a friend in whom yro, have all
confidence ancU trust,,w:hy> don' _''.we let. them _know these
things by telling them how much we love and" appreciate
them, and showing by our acts that our words are not vain?
Trust your friends, have confidence in them, for friendship
abhorreth doubt. Never doubt your friends' word. In a
time of trouble never fail to lend a helping hand. Scatter
roses aloug the pathways and remove every visible thorn,
so that when our friends are with us no more we will have
no sad thoughts of unspoken words and duties which, we
have left undone.

About Float
Float is not a periodical,
It 1b a book containing 86
illustrations all told, and
is filled with sketches and
stories of -western life. It
tells how a gambler cashed
in after the flush days of
Sandon; how it rained in
New Denver long after
Noah was dead ; how a
parson took a drink at
Bear Lake in early days ;
how justice -was dealt in
Kaslo in '93; how the
saloon man ontprayed the
women in Kalamazoo, and
graphically depicts the
roamings of a western
editor among the tender-
feet in the cent belt. It
contains the early history
of Nelson and a romance
of the Silver King mine.
In it are printed three
western poems, and dozens of articles too numerous to mention. Send for

The mining prosperity of Ross-
laud ia thus described in the Vancouver Province:
Rossland mines"", are in better
shape than ever, and the camp is
now assured of a long life ahead.
jvosslaud lias produced since 1896
ore to tlie value oi about 854.000,
000. Of this large production the
War Eagle-Centre Star Group,
owned by the Consolidated Mining
Company, Limited, leads with ��26-
500,000: febe Le Roi owned by the
same company, comes next with
over 822,500,000; and the production of Le Roi _NTo. 2 has amounted
to about ��o,O00,000. Last year
saw the largest production Bince
100S, tlie total output of the camp
being little short of $3,500,000 made
np of 133-,300 ounces gold, 105
ounces silver silver and 2.200,000
pounds copper. Present development is giving batterer esults than
have been expected, the ore reserves
on fehe War Eagle having been
largely increased during the past
year, particularly on levels Nos. 13
and 14 where the gold values_show
an increase iu large shoots. On
the Le Roi fehe ore reserves were
doubled during the'past'Jyear. In
his preliminary report on the operations of the past year the provincial mineralogist estimates the new
development work done on the
Centre Star at 10,600 feet, and that
done on the Le Roi at over 44,000
feet. Near the Black Bear powerhouse fehe company has established
a concentrabing plant for testing
ores, this plant including flotation
and cyanide processes. A 40 drill
compressor this powerhouse has
been changed from steam to electric
drive.
The encouragaing feature of the
development of the Rossland camp
is that the ore bodies have been
found to improve in size and value
with depth. As an instance of
this Le Roi No. 2 Limited has developed unusually good ore at a
depth of 1500 feet, and on the
northern portion of that company's
ground, to which little attention
has hitherto been paid, encouraging results are attending development. Development work on the
Josie totalled 5,010 feet and diamond drilling 15,075 feet. Le Roi
No. 2 increased its shipments to
Trail smelter for the year to
22,300 tons of ore aud concentrates; as compared with 18,257
tons for previous year. The provincial m ineralogist reports:
"From nearly 40,500 tons of mixed
ore that was 500 tons of mill ore.
In addition 1,700 tons of ore came
from the deep level development.
The mill ore yielded 1,600 tons of
concentrate,"
The value of crude ore from the
Le Roi No.  2 shipped   to Trail
smelter ran 0.643 ounces of gold,
1-19 ounces of silver, and 1,94 per
cent copper per ton. The concentrates carried 0.81 ounces of gold,
and 181 pounds ' copper per ton.
Ore is mined from all levels from
200 feet to 900 feet inclusive and
on 1100 feet and 1500 feet levels,
the last corresponding in depth
with the 1650 feet level of the Le
Roi adjoining, and the 1100 feet
level corresponding with No. 9 of
the War Eagle.
Other properties operated at
Rossland were the Giant-California, which shipped 102 tons;
Nickel Plate shipping 93 tons, and
the Phoenix, shipping 23 tons,
In the South Belt the Richmond
Consolidated erected mine buildings, constructed head frame over
Lily May shaft; installed 16-drill
compressor and steam hoise and
continued in proving up ore on the
200-foot level of the Lily May.
At Paulson in Rossland mining
division, the Inland Empire kept
its mill running.
A. Good Performance.
Ten carloads of high-grade silver-lead ore were shipped the past
week from the Silver Standard
mine on Glen mountain, seven
miles from New Hazelton. This
makes a total of twenty-four carloads, or seven hundred and
twenty-one tons. The last loads
were brought down from the mine
on Monday afternoon last and the
last cars were shipped from this
point on Wednesday's freight,
Last year the Silver Standard
shipped just a little over three
hundred tons and it is safe to predict that this year's shipment,
while more than double in size,
will also be much more valuable,
as greater pains were taken in
sorting.
Besides the seven hundred tons
shipped the company has on the
damps in the neighborhood of two
thousand tons of concentrating ore
that will return an immense
amount of money after .treatment.
Just when the concentrator will be
installed has not yet been decided.
Speaking to D. McLeod, general
manager for the company, the
Herald was informed that there
will be another carload or two
shipped out this winter providing
the Bleighing remains. At the
present time the mine force is
cleaning out the bunkers and
sacking np what ore is left, preparatory to resuming development
work to be undertaken first. It is
most likely that the shaft on the
No. 3 vein will be continued to
another level. Other work will be
announced later.���Hazelton Herald.

Grand Forks Relinquishes Cups to Trail
Owing to many other abbr&etiions
there wa__ not a large attendance at
the Star Theatre last Friday anight
when the Lyric Amateur Dramatic
soetaby of Grand Forks presented
in a wery finished manner uWhat
Happened to Jones." Those who
were, present, however, were very
appreciative and the members of
the society are entitled to great
crediH forjthe excellent presentation
of (Lis comedy. The hearty applause and roars of laughter which
greeted each comical sifcnatiem did
in a measure compensate this tal-
enled company for their trouble
In giwang Greenwood a really first
class show.
Jones was the man who ot_d�� the
best, oi opportunities and -the character "was taken to a nicety fcjr E,
Hai-rison. It was a series o�� mirth
prowoking situations cleverly taken,
Ebeanezer Goodly, a proi.es-.or of
ana6omy, with a latent stoea-k of
a lova of sport which Ipads to his
undoing and a series of amusing
comjiticatioDS, was impereorjated
by WalliamOWalker in a manner
which displayed rare histrionic
abHi-iy, while the original Bishop
of Ballarat, who was the duaocenb
viciiBQ of a heap of trouble, E. C.
Coy was especially good, Mrs.
GoedLy Ebene_er'swife, was played
by Mubs E. Best in exceHenl Bfeyle,
giving a faithful interpretation of
th�� wife who nearly drives her
husD&nd distracted with mistaken
kindness. Mrs. C. M. Keron as
Alvina Starlight, portrayed the
romantic spinster of uncertain age
in & way that brought forth much
laughter from the audience, Kelma
a Swedish girl, gave Mrs. F. J.
Lake an excellent opportunity to
show what could be done -with a
small part in good hands. Cissy,
Ebenezer's ward, in charge oi Miss
Marjjorie Mann, gave a part that
salted her well. Miss. J, Barlee
and Miss M. Frost as Ebeuezer's
two daughters, filled their respective'parts in a manner that allows
of no criticism. G. 0. Broad, as
Ricl:��rd Heatherly, engagec. to
Marjjorie took the part in capital
styl*. Mr. Fray, as a policeman;
H. ]R. Broad, an inmate of a Bani-
tarhim, and F. J. Lake, as head
oi a sanitarium, all said their lines
in 'good dramatic taste.
W* hope when the Giand Forks
Lyric Amateur Drama-tic society
has another production, they will
come to Greenwood when, nnder
mora favorable circumstances they
will be welcomed with a bumper
hoasfe.

We would rather have seen  the
Nelson News and the McBride cups
remain in the Boundary and thus
prove to the world  that the very
best of hockey is played in tbis part
of the country, but when the Boundary champions let them go by default to Trail, then we think,  that
Grand Forks is again showing that
poor   sportsmanship   which    they
have   exhibited all winter.     Not
only does this give Grand  Forke
another black eye but the  whole'
Boundary mast perforce bear part
of   the   shame   in   not  defending
the title.     Trail  defeated Grand
Forks at the latter's rink on Friday last by a score of 3-2.    Grand
Forks promised to play home and
home games if ice permitted,  but
after getting the  gate receipts on
Friday night, they absolutely refused to play in Trail.    It   is' regrettable and deplorable that the
Grand   Forks   officials   could not
show a better brand of sportsmanship.    It is a pity that so noble a
game and one  that   calls   for the
exercise of the   finest  instincts of
human nature should be subjected
to the selfish Equabbles of officials.
Trail has proved themselves to be
good sports and are entitled to the
Interior Championship.    Here's to
yon, Trail, and let us hope you will
meet Greenwood next year.
AS RECEIVED OVEE THE THONE
Emblems of Boundary Championship let go out of Boundary
country by default.
Grand Forks lost to Trail and
then were not sports enongh to go
through with the series of games
agreed upon.
Grand Forks groused and whined
at every turn all winter. They
had dates for exhibitions and
league games all their own way.
They got one game from Greenwood through having their own
referee.    It was a steal.
They started to protest the next
one before it was finished!, but they
won, so this squeal did not get out
of the bag.
They misrepresented the retnms
of games to at least one of their
local papers.
After winning the caps from
Phoenix and overflowing with the
wine of good fellowship they refused to play Trail in Phoenix although Phoenix had good ice.
Trail met Grand Forks on their
own water pool and won. Grand
Forks had the gate receipts and
then refused to go to Trail.
The cups are gone from the
Boundary but worst of .all the
honor of Grand Forks iB in doubt.
