H. C. Brewster Speaks.
H. C, Brews+er,  leader of the

must have felt gratified at the
large gathering of the citizens of
Greenwood   who   attended   the
meeting in the Star Theatre last
Wednesday night to hear them
give a resume of the politics of
today.   One feature ol the audience was the number of ladies
present,   which  must give  the
"mere man" an inkling of the
interest   that   the   woman    Of
today  is taking   in the affairs
of the country.   Mr.  Brewster is
a pleasant speaker and we must
confess that we believe he was
sincere in stating what he did
about   the   land policy   of  the
present government, showing the
millions of acres that have been
alienated for the benefit of the
speculator, most of which is the
best land available for settlers.
The government cannot be unaware of the rumbling of dissatisfaction which is heard on all
sides in connection with this very
matter of the resources of our
country being given over to the
railways and corporations;
John Oliver spoke at length on
the "Workman's Compensation
Act" and "Votes for Women."
Their speeches have been published in most of the daily

No country in the western hemisphere ��� has been so happy in its
builders as British Columbia.   The
pioneers oE the Pacific province'of
Canada ^were' a class'apart;: their _
virtues were many ;and -they ..had*?
no faults.    Bnt even the best are
mortal.    Our pioneers are passing f%
one by oner bnt it will be not their
loss but British Columbia's if they
vanish without recognition.
The first white settlement' was^
made at Kamloops in 1812. Vic-^
toria J__as next in 1842. The
Fraser valley, from New Westminister to Ashcroft, was] settled
between 1850 and 1865 and many
a veteran of those days is stilt living.
It is Lard to define in a sentence
the distinction between Britiah
Columbia'e pioneers and those of
other provinces and states. It is
well -known- -that -this���province ���
never knew an epidemic of crime
such as the neighbouring states.
The reason was not only the superior efficiency of Canadian courts
or police, it was the character and
conduct of the pioneers. They
were law-abiding, law respecting
and law enforcing. The criminal
had no friends to help him to fight
the courts. A man in distress
cocldconnton the friendship land
the kindness of every man, but,, if
he outlawed himself, he had no
friends. This salutary feature
made administration of law easy
and has given British Columbia a
reputafcien that is not likely to be
surpassed.
Onr pioneers are passing. Every
year sees a few "drop silently to
rest." They don't need, and they
don't want, any public assistance
or any publicity of any kind, but
they deserve, and - the province
owes tfccm, a formal recognition for
their priceless services.
They were empire builders in the
best and grandest sense. They
kept the law when there was no
one else to keep it They made
this country inhabitable when,
without them, it might have seen
lynch law or no law.
A few of the pioneers survive.
The resident of this province today
who denies or ignores his debt to
them deserves the ancient Anglo-
Saxon reproach and title of "n$d-
! dring.1'���-West Yale Review.

Bring Him Back
Talking about hockey the
Hazelton Herald says that;���
Semi-professional sports are
very detrimental to any town
or community, necessitating
an outlay of money from
which there is no return,
either in added 'pleasure or
m new money in the, district,
On the other hand it lessons
the interest in the game and
is a strong incentive to a
class of young men to become
Victoria.- "Bring back the prospector," says Mr. Lome Campbell,
M.L.A. for Rossland." If the
prospectors who were so numerous a few years ago are not to be
encouraged to return, the only
other thing to do is to insist that
tbe Dominion Government shall
hasten its geological survey of this
province and the making of a complete geological survey is necessary
a long job as well as expensive.
Mr. Campbell agrees that there
is much justice in the complaint
at the Conservative annual convention with the' regard to the
method of handling mineral claims
which have been abandoned after
being crown granted. "Any person who wishes to take up such a
the conduct of these people in the
neighborhood of Grand Forks.
Now there is a report thai about
six thousand more of them are
coming. If this ib so it means
that our valley, which is one of the
finest parts of the province, will
be ruined. It will become uninhabitable by persons who want to
live amidst civilized surroundings."
Mr. Miller agrees with the proposal of the attorney-general to
make the communiby property responsible for the acts of individual
Doukhobors. This, of course, can
be done, but it will take some
thinking to word the law so that it
will accomplish the objects; a
difficulty being created by the fact
that Peter Veregin is legally the
sole owner of all the Doukhobor
property. He does not hold it in
any sense as a trustee, but is the
personal owner, with power to do
as he likes with it." "Ab things
are at present," says Mr. Miller,
"a Doukhobor may break any con>
tract with impunity. The person
agrieved may sue, if he likes, but
what's the use. The man with
whom the contract was made has
nothing, and so you cannot collect
anything from him."
In Mr. Miller's opinion the best
hope is in compelling the children
tojattend school and learn the
English language. The registration of. their births, marriages and
deaths should also be insisted
upon, but in teaching of English,
he thinks, lies the key of the situation. Nothing else will accom-
plish permanent results.
Fox Farming
License to Drink
claim," says Mr. Campbell,
"should be allowed to do so by
paying the back taxes, together
with the regular fee of $10. As
things are now, a prospector may
find ore on such a claim but if he
roling stones, playing hockey tries to get possession of the claim,
in one town   for   a  season, J he finds himself confronted by the
baseball in another, and very
often loafing between seasons
Amateur sports always have
and always   will   draw the
greatest crowd and furnish
the most sport for the least
possible outlay.    To win an
amateur game is a real credit and  glory.    Winning a
professional game really signifies nothing as it  is often
influenced by the gambling
connected with it.   The winning of the Ross cup is a
good     advertisement,     but
when the cupels captured at
a cost of hundreds of dollars
and the loss of the amateur
standing in the community.
it   is expensive advertising
and ineffective.
law which says that it must be ad'
vertised for sale by tender and be
given to the highest bidder. It
simply means that the prospector
without money has no chance at
all. The richer his find the surer
he is to lose it. The inevitable result is that when considerable
areas have become tied up in this
way the prospector is driven out of
the country and mineral development is seriously hampered. With
no prospectors and no adequate
geological survey how are we ever
going to find the mineral wealth
Why not make a man take out a
license to drink?   Pay $5   for it
and   have   the government, take
away his license if he indulges not
wisely, but too well.   Make him
show bis license upon demand by
any bartender and also take up his
license if he is found buying after
hours.   This wonld be limiting the
liquor traffic,    and   regulating  it
right down Go the minute.   In connection with the treating system,
for instance, just imagine a friend
calling out to you:    '-'Come on in,
and have   a drink,"   while you
would be forced to reply,   ' 'Sorry,
old scout,  but I  haven't got  a
license.���Ottawa Journal.
The enthusiasm concerning fox-
catching and farming in Yukon
has materially waned during the
past few weeks, owing to the fact
that the price of foxes has decreased nearly 50 per cent since
last summer and that hundreds of
foxes held in captivity have died
from some unknown cause. Many
of these foxes were black, and, in
some cases, as high as 81,500 to
$2,000 had been paid for them.
One dealer who, it is said, could
have sold his stock of foxes in July
for $65,000, sold two weeks ago for
less than $35,000, the latter price
being, to some extent, due to the
decline iu prices, but, also, to the
fact that many of the animals had
died in the meantime. One young
black fox, for which $1,600 bad
been paid, died five days after being placed iu the corral.
Owing to the decline in price,
fully 150 yonng foxes, all of the
red variety, held in captivity in
southern Yukon, have been turned
out to return to their native haunts
in the wilds. Previous to sickness
development among foxes in captivity here, upwards of 200 young
ones bad been shipped from White-
horse alone, to fox ranches in New
Brunswick, Prince Edward Island,
and to dealers naar Boston, Mass.
At present there are not over fifty
held in this locality.
A number are experimenting
with mink farming, but great
difficulty is experienced in keeping
them, wire corrals offering little
resistance when they seek their
freedom.
Owners of black and silver gray
foxes are not discouraged over the
slump in prices, bat contend that
they will be more valuable than
ever within a few months.���U.S.
Consular Reports.
Gasoline in Alberta
A few months ago a "white oil"
was struck in an oil well at Black
Diamond near Okofcoks, Alberta.
It consisted largely of gasoline of
such purity that it has been successfully used in its raw state for
driving an automobile. At a
higher horizon in this well, a flow
of 2,000,000 cubic feet of gas per
day was obtained.
There are two hundred plants in
the United States making gasoline
from natural gas. The yield' is
determined largely by the quantity
of liquid paraffin vapours in tbe
permanent gases, and is further
affected by the temperature conditions in th9 well, the gasoline
content of the oil, and the intim-
ateness of contact between the oil
and gas. Such rapid expansion of
gas from a casing head has been
known to occur as to cause a heavy
condensation of vapours at the
point of egress.
The above considerations suggest
that the possibility of manufacturing gasoline from the natural gas,
which occurs in such enormous
quantities in Alberta, is a matter
well worthy of investigation.
There would undoubtedly be a
large market for the gasoline produced, and after its extraction the
residual gas would be rich in
methane and ethane and have
a high heating value.���W. J. D.

If your child is under weight, listless
ailing, liable to get sick easily, it needs a
medicine to build its weight and strength.
For this purpose there is nothing else we
know of that we can so strongly endorse
as Rexall Olive OiL Emulsion.   .The remarkable success of this  splendid  medicine is due to the fact that it contains ingredients that tone the nerves,   enrich
the blood and furnish to the entire system the strength, weight and  liealth-
building substances at needs.    And, it
does all this without injuringthe stomach.
In fact, Rexall Olive Oil Emulsion is not
only pleasant to take, but even the most
sensitive stomach is benefited by it, and
the digestion improved.   On the other
hand, it contains no alcohol or habit-
forming drugs, which most parents object to giving their children,   It does its
good work by taking hold of the weakness and builds the body upto its natural
strength, at  the same  time making it
strong to resist disease.
If Rexall Olive Oil Emulsion doesn't
build your child up, feed the stunted,
puuny muscles, and make' the little one
lively, strong, well, and full of tlie animal spirit children areimeant by nature
to have, come back and tell us and get
your money back. We don't want you
to lose a. cent. We think this is no more
than iair, and it leaves you no cause to
hesitate. For old people also���for convalescents���for all who are nervous, tired

AIMLESS GIRLS
���Poor, indescribably poor, is that girl who has gifts, a
clear mind and active hands, and has not been taught how
to use them, wandering aimless throught life, mediocre in
everything, without definite aim, seeking vainly for occupations to amuse or distract, deforming her body to gratify
ignorant vanity, injuring herself by late hours and bad
food, sparkling dimly in the struggle for tbe wealthy husband, and then as a wife realizing her weakness and lack]
of wovth; as mother, weeping bitter, stinging tears as she
sees the results of her miserable life magnified in her chil-
dreu, and wailing piteously for help and strength when it
is too late. No sarcasm this; this scientific man turns toi
his work after studying such a case. But object teaching
is nature's teaching, and many repetitions are necessary
before people will take the lesson and its full  meaning to
heart.

Much more happiness is found in homes where the little

things that make our life pleasant or unpleasant.

How much trouble he avoids who does not look to see
what his neighbor says, or does, or thinks; but only to
what he does-himself, that it may be just and pure.
Nothing more contemptible, unmanly or unwomanly than
the everlasting sighing for happiness. Those who have
the most of it think the least about it. But in the thinking about and doing their duty happiness comes, because
the heart and the mind are occupied with earnest thought
that teaches at' a thousand points the beautiful and sublime realties of the universe.

��� Squalor is the outward expression of hopeless and unrelieved poverty, But it is not needed for the poor man's
house to be squalid. On the contrary, with industry and
care, and the bright service of a healthy wife, the tiniest
cottage may at times be an abode in which the most dainty
could pass a short time with pleasure. On the other hand
many houses become squalid without excuse, miserable as
it is, of abject poverty. . Thus, while we may fairly rank
poverty as a main cause of squalor, it is not absolute absence of. of money which is the chief cause. Cleaning is
neglected; and whatever be the building, and however it
be furnished, in which constant cleaning is omitted, dttst
accumulates, unexplained stains make their appearance,
and a progress more or less rapid as the case may be, sets
up towards decay and delapidation.
Make yourself happy by seeing the best in  people
things about you.

This week the Curb coppers con-,
tribnted sensational developments
to market history. . A week ago
the Bpectacalar rises in G_*eene-
Cananea and Braden held the centre of the stage, bat this week
"Greene-Can" and Braden give
way in the limelight to Bri tish Columbia Copper, which from levels
of ��2 a fortnight ago swelled to
high sales of $4 yesterday.
The rise in British Columbia is
due to the fact that the company
has succeeded in perfecting arrang-
ments with Haydea, Stone & Company for financing itself, in taking
over desirable new properties.
As for its own  Motherlode and
other properties, British  Colombia
has been on easy street for many
years; these have been Bteady income producers, but, unfortunately, their income has been dissipated
for the laBt two years in the company's campaign of exploration  in
rounding up   a   large   number of
outside properties in various  parts
of British Columbia and the State
of Washington.    Daring the last
IS months no less than  $560,000
has been spent by the Urittah Columbia CoppetfCompany in paying
for, and in performing the   necessary   development work   on new
holdings.    When it is recalled that
earnings for|the past two years have
only been around $700,000, or less,
it will be readily   understood that
British   Columbia Copper,   in its
campaign of expansion, had  bitten
off a bigger chunk   than   it  could
conveniently chew.    Without oat-
side financial assistance the   company   would   have    found    itself
choked.,  The burden which   British   Columbia   Copper  Company
had assumed was a big one,  considering the limited resources of the
company, and resulted in  the depreciation of the stock to low levels
of $2 from levels around $7.75 to
68 a few short years ago,  prior to
tbe inauguration of the recent campaign of expansion.
During the week announcement
was made that the British Columbia
Copper Company bad injected details with the powerful banking
firm of Hay den, Stone & Co., of
Boston and New York, whereby
the copper company would be relieved of its financial difficulties by
the underwriting of a loan by the
bankers, involving, too, a reorganization of the British Columbia
Copper Company under terms presumed to be quite favorable to existing stockholders will be given
some form of preference rights in
subscribing to the bonds.
The connection of the name of
Hay den, Stone & Co. with British
Columbia Copper spread like wildfire, and was taken as a powerful
bull omen on jthe Street.   It was
Hay den, Stone & Co. who succeeded in putting Ohino, Bay Consolidated,  Butte  and Superior,   and
Alaska Gold on their feet when
these properties were more or leas
despised,    overburdened,    weary,
low-priced, on toasts, and who assisted also with Utah Copper.
Hayden, Stone as Co. have underwritten a proposed bond ibsue
of $1,000,000 in convertible 6 per
cent, debentures.   Tbe matter of
issuing tbese  bonds,   as well   as
other certain details of refinancing
the British Columbia Copper Com
pany, will be submitted to stock
holders in a few days, and a special meeting will be called when the
proposed plans will  doubtless be
ratified,
While the proposed plans have
not as yet been given oat to the
public, the Mining Age learns from
a high company  official that the

shares of the new stock, of the par
value of ��1,090,000, will be set
aside in the treasury as a reserve
against conversion of th�� $1.00��,-

to be issued. .T.fc is left to be inferred that tb.e remaining 200,000
shares of new stock, left in the
treasury, -will be used or sold for
company purposes in acquiring,
developing and equipping new
properties. As a matter of fact,
the present outstanding shares of
British Columbia Copper total
only    591,709,    instead    of   the
authorized 600,000, so that under j Miss Smith

Greenwood Wins Two Games from Phoenix.
Phoenix Receives
Shut-Out for the First
Hockey History.
Time in its
Red Metal Metropolis Has Best Team in the Boundary,
They came; they saw, and they
were up against it. The hockey
players from Phoenix came by special train last Friday with a goodly
number of supporters confident of
trimming the home team to the
King's taste, and left lots of money,
in town as a result of rash wagers
of their prowess.
The locals played at the top of
their form and played rings round |
the visitors some of whom receive
$100 a week for playing. The home
boys got away with rushes, their i
back-checking and intercepting perfect, while the defence was a regular Gibralter. Phoenix was trimmed
to the tune of 3-0 and for the first!
time   in  the  hockey   annals
Phoenix tbey received a shut out.
and   Greenwood   did   it   through
superior  playing.   Phoenix   tried
desparately to score bat Clark had
his eye on the rubber all the time
and made some sensational Btops.
The  looals displayed   a  winning \
brand of hockey and it was a vie*
tory well earned and well fought
for.   It was just 10 seconds before
the end of  the  first  period. that
Greenwood  scored the  first goal
although Mitchel the Phoenix goal J
tender   was   tbe  hardest worked
man on the ice.   He was ''shot at
from front of him; shot at from left
and  right of  him,  volleyed and |
thundered,  while  all  the people
wondered."
No goals were scored in the
second period and tbe game was
fast and clean. In the third period
Greenwood tallied two making the
score 3-0 when the finaL gong
sounded.
Of the players it is- hard to say
who excelled for  all  worked [like
Trojans.    Clark upheld bis reputa
tion of being a  enstodian   of tha
nets of no mean repute.   Donnelly
at point is a great improvement,
his checking perfect and his rushes
a great help to the team.   Neil at
cover played a steady, careful and
aggressive game saving time after
time.   Lynn played the gaaae of
his life taking the puck, tarasgft.
the Phoenix defense at "will and always passing at opportune tima.1
Treheme, too, was a wonder; bis
intercepting and his. hack check-]
ing being a feature and the  fans
went wild when he made sreesal
i
mighty rushes.   Smith and Fisher!
on the wings  were  more than at
gaae even the children could not
refrain   from   shouting   "What's
the matter with Greenwood."

A Really Slow Town.
A well known local business
man was grousing about slow times
in the postoffice lobby the other
morning. Attorney Foley, who as
the name will prove, has a wit of
hiB own, overheard him. "Why,
man," he replied, "you don't know
what a slow-town is.   There was a
Another Win.
The .Ledge  has  always   maintained right from the beginning of
the season that Greenwood hae. the
best players in the Boundary���onr
fylee prove it���and by  defeating
the champion Phoenix team twice
in succession proves our assertions
to be correct.   On several occasions we have been asked to "roast"
��'| the management,  but we refused
knowing   that    they   understand
their  business.     We  also  heard
many remarks that the team was ]
no good.   And now we hear  these
same people saying  "I told you
so."   It seems that  the average
man wants to knock those who are
down when  the  true  sportsmen
would encourage, enthuse or sympathise.   Greenwood won on merit
.frdra Phoenix last   Monday by a
score, of 2-0 and thus for the second
tim& shut out the 1100 a  week
players.   This ���' proves,   too,   that
those "who said, that Phoenix gave
Greenwood  thie  first game were
oaty knockers; and were not willing
to give them  credit when Green-
jjwood did win * game.   Poor sport
Ibis and now we notice, that these
same -uadivid-tals  are loudest  in
their praise.   Trehern and Smith
did the scoring but the honors of
the gaone are doe to all for everyone ^'on the dreenwood   line-up
starred.
GreeDwood   and   Grand Forks
| will play in O-reenwood on Friday
and while all the games have been
remarkably brilliant  this season,

Man owes his growth, his energy,
chiefly to that striving of the will
that conflicts with difficulty, which
we call effort. Easy, pleasant
work does npf make robust minds,
does not give men a consciousness
of their powers, does not train
them to endurance, to perseverance, to steady force of will���that
force without-which all other acquisitions avail nothing.���W. E.

A big family can keep a man
out of most other temptations.
Bill Sprague kept a general
store at Croyden Four Corners.
One day he set of for New York
to buy a lot of goods. The goods
were shipped immediately; and as
Bill had lingered in New York
sight-seeing, they reached Croyden
Four Corners before him. The
goods in an enormous packing-case
were driven to the general store by
the local teamster. Mrs. Sprague
came out to see what had arrived
and with a shriek tottered and fell.
"Ob, what's the matter," cried
the hired girl.
Mrs. Sprague, her eyes blinded
with tears, pointed to the packing
case, wheron was stenciled in large
black letters:
Bill inside.    '
