YOUR TELEPHONE IS A
LONG DISTANCE TELEPHONE
You use your telephone when you wish to comiiiu.jic.-_e
with a friend or your tradesman. You naturally use the telephone under those circumstances.
It is just as easy to use the_LrOiig Distance Telephone. It
requires only the^ordinarjrconversational effort to.leleplionc to

should use.the telephone naturally under all circumstances.
BRITISH COLUMBIA TELEPHONE COMPANY, Ltd
The Dominion Government lias
taken a hand in tho labor situation
in Northern Ontario. All alien
enemies have been forced to register and must each month report
to the police officials where they
are registered. They will not. be
allowed to leave one place for another without a permit. Neither
will they be allowed to remain
idle.    They mnst work.
In Porcupine, where a much
larger proportion of alien enemies
were employed at the rflines than
in any other camp, the effect was
almost spontaneous. Practically
all the mines report a much greater efficiency among the alien workmen. The charge made by one of
the largest mine managers that the
Austrians and Bulgarians were
soldiering on the jobs seems to be
borne out. His contention was
that these alien enemies had considerable savings which they could
not send out of the country and
therefore worked only when they
felt like it.
There is no more danger of the
Porcupine mines closing down of
their own free will until conditions
again became normal, than a strike
being called. A number of the
aliens, now under surveillance belong to the unions, so the Btrength
of that organization has been
materially weakened. This class
of labor looks after mucking and
tramming.���Cobalt Miner.

The Annual Meeting of th.
Greenwood District Liberal Association, was held in Larsen's Hall,
Rock. Creek, last Friday evening
and was the largest turnout of the
kind ever seen in the district. A
special train was run from Eholt,
Greenwood, Boundary Falls aad
Midway. President, R. W. Taylor was in the chair. Sir Wilfrid
Laurier and Hon. H. C. Brewster
were elected honorary presidents,
and the Hon. J. D. MacLean, honorary vice-president; J. L. White,
president; Angus McLennan, vice-
president; C.   Charlton, sec-treas.
Many routine matters were discussed. Ladies can join theAssoc-
iation and obtain equal privileges.
A resolution was passed stating
that no member can hold an office
in the Association while in the employ of the government. There
was considerable discussion re road
work, game wardens, etc. There
are eight local Liberal Associations
in the Riding, and each of them
must elect their own executives.
The following resolution waa presented by D. MacPherson, of
Greenwood. It was passed and
endorsed by the the entire house
rising and giving three cheers
for Brewster and MacLean.
WHEREAS :���The Province of
British Columbia was, prior to the
election of the present Liberal
Government, controlled by an incapable and unscrupulous administration whose chief object was the
up-building of a powerful political
machine, rather than the development and sane government of the
province;
AND WHEREAS:���The people
of British CV.ln����M_�� ou 8apt. i*5H
last, almost unanimously, declared
ageinst a continuation of those conditions and elected to office the
Honourable H. C. Brewster and
his supporters, believing that they
would endeavor to give the province sane and progressive government;
AND WHEREAS:���It is apparent that a desperate offort is
now being made by the discredited
remnants of the old "Machine"
administration, assisted by certain
hireling and unscrupulous newspapers, to undermine the present
government and rob it of the confidence of the people by systematically polluting the channels of public information and making vague
insinuations impugning the intentions of the Government as a whole
and wild charges against the honour
and integrity of its individual
members,���
BE IT THEREFORE RESOLVED by this district Liberal
Association, in annnal session assembled, that we hereby express
our full confidence in the intentions, ability and integrity of Honourable H- 0. Brewster, Premier,
and the members of his Government, and that we will continue to
do so until the contrary is proven
on unassailable ground;
AND BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, That this Liberal Association does pledge to the Government of British Columbia its heartiest support in the furtherance of
tbe policies of development, sound
economy and sane, business-like
administration to which the Government is committed.

What is a minority?  The chosen
heroes of this earth have been in a
minority'.     There  is  not a  social,
political or religious  privilege that
you   enjoy   today   that   was   not-
bought for  you by the blood  and
tears and patient  sufferings of the
minority.    It is  the minority that
has vindicated  humanity in every
struggle.    It is  tho  minority that
have  stood  iu  the   van  of every
moral   conflict,   and    achieved all
that is noble  in   the history of the
world.    You  will  find  that  each
generation has been  always  busy
in gathering up the scattered ashes
of the martyred heroes of the past,
to deposit them in the golden   urn
of   a   nation's   history.    Look at
Scotland, where  they  are erecting
monuments���to    whom?���to    the
Covenantors.    Ah,   they were in a
minority.    Read  their  history, if
you can, without the  blood  tingling  to the  tips  of  your   fingers.
These   were   the   minority   that,
through   blood,    and   tears,    and
bootings   and   scourgings���dyeing
the  waters  with  their  blood and
staining   the   heather   with  their
gore���fought   the glorious battles
of religious freedom.    Minority I if
a   man   stand   up   for the  right,
though the right be on the scaffold,
while the wrong sits in  the seat of
government;  if  he  stand  for the
right,   though   he   eat,   with   the
right and truth, a  wretched cruBt;
if he walks with obloquy and scorn
in the by-lanes and  streets, while
falsehood   and   wrong   ruffle  it in
silken attire,   let  him   remember
that wherever the right and  truth
are, there are always
"Troops of beautiful tall angels"
gathered round him, and God himself stands within the dim future,
and keeps watch over hie own!
If a man stands for the right and
the truth, though every man's
finger be pointed at him, though
every woman's lip be curled at him
in scorn, he stands in a minority;
��or Rod and good angels are with
him, and greater art. tboy that are
for him than all they that be

The Local Paper
TRANSFER OF LICENSE
The Fisheries
High prices for all kind of fishery product are making the returns very satisfactory, despite
complaints as to the high cost of
labor and supplies. On the Atlantic coast fishermen have been put
to unasual expense this year in. repairing their weirs, which suffered
from the storms of the past winter,
but with this exception a good
measure of prosperity is being enjoyed. At St. John's Nfld., very
striking results have attended the
annual sealing, and twelve ships
of the old type of construction,
representing the smallest tonnage
on record in recent years, secured
a catch of 200,000 seals worth
��750,000, a very satisfactory result for three weeks' work.
In British Columbia the final
figures of the salmon catch show a
total of 995,065 cases, a smaller
number than any 'year'since'1911.
Peep sea trawling has been tested
on the Pacific Coast, and promises
to be successful. The owners of a
large cold storage plant, on the
Hecate Straits between the main
land of British Columbia and the
Queen Charlotte Islands, have
equipped a. steam trawler which
now makes regular trips to the
fishing grounds. One trip of four
or five days netted 60,000 pounds
of fish. The fish gathered in by
the trawl are of many varieties, for
all of which there is a ready market, and one that gives promise of
permanency. The fisherman regard the local indicationsas favourable for trawling, and point out
that the North Sea banks have
been fished and re-fished without
showing signs of depletion, and
that conditions in the field now
being tested are in many respects
similar to those which have proved
so great a source of profit to tbe
European fishermen. The total
exports of fish from Canada in
1916 were valued at 823,983,528,
as compared with 821,297,611 in
the previous year.
A local newspaper is absolutely
necessary to any community. It
is the home paper that keeps the
people of the community in touch
with each other by giving them all
the news of their own neighborhood and country. For that alone
they are of value and worth far
more than the small subscription
price. They keep the local pride
and progressive spirit aroused and
in various ways are worth far
more to a community ever spends
on them. The daily paper with
its large news service and quick
facilities may, in some instances
overshadow the weekly, but the
weekly home paper fills a place in
the heart of the people that a daily
cannot fill. It comes to your
home as an old tried friend while
the daily enters as a stranger.
The Standard employees at Silverton have a brass band.
At Loon Lake, Wash., a 150-

Last week the Noonday in the

The Donohoe Mines at Stump

A. L. Bass went to Princeton

The first International Mining
Convention will be held at Nelson,
May 17 to 19.
In the Stewart disirict R. K.

Bear Biver group.
There may be some mining activity this summer, at the old mining camp of Fairview.
The smeltermen in Trail are now
being paid 80 cents a day more,
than they received a year ago.
At Mirror lake, not far from
Kaslo, some good milling ore is being shown up on the Piker group.
Last year Canada produced
59885 tons of copper. More than
half of it was produced in B. C.
This summer there will be much
proppecting for placer gold along
the creeks that are tributary to the
Naas river.
This is payday at Trail, and
more than 8140,000 will be paid to
the 1200 employees of the greatest
smelter in Canada.
The Dibble group, iu the Fort
Steele district, will be worked this
summer by a syndicate, in which
Sir George Foster is largely interested.
There are 41 men at the Emma
mine at Denoro. Considerable development work and diamond
drilling will be carried on this
summer.
The Boundary needs more work
done upon its mineral nlaimn within its Boundaries. There is plenty
nf ore in the hills, but it cannot
walk to the smelter.
Joe Walters wants a tax on fuel
oil, in order to protect the coal industry of this province. The province also needs a better method of
keeping its coal mines and coke
ovens in continuous operation.
Sloan's new mining bill has
been severely criticised in many
quarters. It iB not advisable for
the welfare of the mining industry
to tinker too much with mining
laws. Better let well enough
alone.
NOTICE is hereby given that I intend
to apply at the next sitting of the Board
of License Commissioners of the City of
Greenwood for a transfer of the Liquor
License held by me for the National
Hotel to Hughie D. McGillivray.

The Kangaroo
The kangaroo is the only animal
iu the world that never educated
its feet. It can't walk; and it can
only half fly. So it sits upon its
hind legs and gets where it's going
in leaps.
There are many criticisms like
this we rhight make of the kangaroo. It travels by jerks, like a
local train; and if it lived iu an
icy country it could leap ten feet
and slide a mile, and have it on all
of us.
But there is this to be said for
the brute: It certainly goes in for
convenience. It jumps its rivers
and ditches and obviates bridges.
And as for the mother of the kangaroo race���well, show ua the
American woman who can put her
baby in her pocket and go shopping.   ������;���.-'������'���'������
Plenty to Eat
One day last summer a hobo
hired out to a farmer who was
head over heels in work. The
hobo worked till dark, then helped
with the chores, and it was half
past nine by the time he got bis
supper. After supper he went to
bed.
About four the next morning he
was called to get up. "When he
came down breakfast was ready.
He ate another hearty meal, and
"started upstairs again saying:
"This is tin. best place I ever
worked���two suppers in one night
and back to bed again,"

Synopsis of Coal Mining Regulations.
The Hope, Knob Hill, and
Lone Pine-Surprise mines at Republic, Wash., have shut down,
the operators having refused to
grant the miners an advance in
wages of 50 cents a day. The
Tom Thumb is the only mine in
that camp paying "$4 a shift.
The Greenwood Mining Division
is specially well represented by
Mineral Exhibits in the collection
of The Canadian Government Exhibition Commission. This is due
largely to the action of oar local
Agricultural association, which
wisely donated it's entire collection of local ores to the Commission
in the Fall of 1914. Upwards of
eighty samples of typical ores from
this division were shown at both
San Francisco and San Diego
Fairs] and the specimens will be
exhibited at all Expositions which
may later be visited by the Canadian Exhibition Commission.
"There is much promise in the
mineral opened by John Falconer
on tbe Logsdon ranch, said J. C.
Sfcutz, of Danville, who is well
known as a conservative mining
man assayer, in an interview at
Spokane the other day. "I made
no tests of the rich samples, bat
believe they contain much more
than $100,000 to the ton. They
came from a quartz streak ten
inches wide that has been stripped
100 feet at the surface. "I am
more impressed by the possibilities
in the main body, apparently 10
to 25 feet wide, and those in another large body lying parallel and
400 feet west. I obtained low
values in copper from decomposed
matter in these bodies. As the
rock is a porphyry its grade ie not
against it."
