years in Vancouver and Greenwood, he left the latter place for

and the following year deputy attorney-general, which appointment
he held until a short time before
his death. He is survived by his
widow, who was formerly Miss
Kate McKenzie, of New Westminster. Mrs. McLeod has the sympathy of a large circle of friends in
the Boundary in her sad bereavement.
The funeral service was held in

Victoria, on Thursday afternoon,
Feb. 1. It was conducted by Rev.
Dr. W. Leslie Clay, pastor of St.
Andrews Presbyterian church, assisted by the Rev. W. L. Macrae.

'���Abide with Me" and "Peace, perfect Peace" were sung. The pallbearers were Messrs, R. T. Tolmie
(Deputy Minister of Mines), J. J.
Caulfield, H. Bunting, Ex-Mayor
Alex Stewart, Munro Miller, and
Angus McKeown, the last two being prominent Freemasons, officially representing Greenwood
Lodge No. 28, A. F. & A.M.
Among those who attended the
service were Hon. M. A. McDonald (Attorney-General), Mrs. J. J.

The River Clyde has been brought

Played Splendid Hockey
Three games pf hockey were
played at the local rink last Friday
evening. Grand Forks and Greenwood teams were the contenders.
About 160 of the Forks supporters
came over by special train; twenty
of these getting on at Eholt. The
Girls game was 0-0; Intermediates,
3-2, Greenwood's favor; Juniors,
4-2, Grand Forks' favor.
The opening combat was between
the Girls teams. It being Grand
Forks' initial appearance on Greenwood ice. The match was fairly
even throughout, the puck would
go from one end of the rink to the
other, and never once got between
the goal posts. The Lome girls
put up a much better fight than
they did when they were defeated
in Grand Forks the previous Friday. One would hardly know it
was the same line-up. Each player worked together, kept her position better, and with good checking and combination wen. able to
hold their opponents to a tie.
Grand Forks tried hard to ..core,
but with the local girla playing
such stellar hockey (much to the
Forks' surprise) their efforts were
without avail. The game throughout was exciting which kept tho
onlookers keyed up to the highest
pitch. It was also a clean exhibition with very few off sides, aud
no penalties.
For Grand Forks, Gwennie Mc-
Ilwaine and Olga Frankovitch
were the stars. With good stick
handling, combined with speed,
kept the home girls busy all fehe
time. Irene Havertv, Emma
Need ham, and Amy Frankovitch
were strong on the forward line,
while Marjorie Mann worked hard
on defence. Helen DeCew showed
up well in goal.
For Greenwood, Edith Willcox
was the star. She was always a
source of trouble to the Forks
team. Jean Crawford, Eileen
Oliver and Euphemia McMillan
put up better hockey than they
have in former games. Ethel
Pond and Margaret Boyer were a
strong defence, while Marie Anderson excelled in goal.
The Intermediates of the two
cities contested the second game,
and was very fast. The Forks
having improved their line-np since
fehe last game, made the game
more even. The Greenwood boys
had the advantage until a short
time before the bell rung in the
third period. They scored three
goals, while the visitors were unable to tally, but the last ten
minutes the Forks livened up and
put in two goals in succession.
The juniors played the final
game, which was full of thrills.
The locals lost by 4-2, The visitors were a much heavier team
and this with speed, stick handling and good shooting won them
the game. The Greenwood boys
even in defeat put up a good fight.
The line up for the Girls teams
is as follows:
Grand Forks���Goal, Helen DeCew; point, Olga Frankovitch:
