Sweeping Law Decision  An important judgment  has been  handed   down   by Judge  McLennan  of  Montreal,   in   the   case   of alien  enemies   interned  in  Canada.    The  particular case  cited had to do with  an Austrian   named Gusetu, whose  lawyer   had   applied   for   a   writ   of  habeas corpus   on the grounds that  he was a Ruthenian, rather   than an  Austrian.      In   delivering judgment,  the court declared that it Is provided  by  the War. Measures   Act  that no  ^person under arrest or detention as  an alien enemy, or under suspicion,  can be released on bail or otherwise  ..discharged from   custody.     That no  habeas  corpus  applies for an alien  enemy   who   is   a  prisoner   of war,  and, that .an   alien   enemy   has ' no  rights   under   the 'common T law   of  '. England.   The application was therefore refused. . >,    ������ \ ��� -  Don't overlook "trie patriotic hop.  More Razors Wanted  The response to the Pioneer's- appeal in last week's issue for razors  for the soldiers of the new army,  has not been' as satisfactory as one  might expect from a town like Phoenix containing so many men. The  introduction of the safety razor mu^  have thrown out of commission  many of the old style of face scrapers, 'andwe feel sure .that the need  of oursoldiers has'only to be known  to be "generously answered. We  need hardly remind our readers that  if it were not that the factories' were  busy turning out bayonets and sabres, there .would b'e no necessity  for' this appeal.

The home team  taking both games from   the visiting  nine by the score of 9-7 and 5-4.    The  Saturday's game was played after the  Great Northern arrival,  the local boys  donning their suits en route.   They say  that the terriffic heat had much  to do  with their first defeat.   They are not  hollering over Saturday's defeat, only  want to make a few remarks about the  Rossland umpire Griffith.  Ted Deichert,  the man who paid $2.50 for a water jug,  agreed to a seven inning game.    This  was about the fifth inning, but on the  expiration of the first half of the sixth,  Griffith called the game on account of  darkness,  which met .with  much   disapproval,     Mr.   Griffin  "afraid  to  go  home in the dark," made  a hasty re  treat for down town.    Some -umpire is  Griffith, brother of the Rossland catcher.  Whatabout an Iron Cross, boys ?  Robinson, first up, got on, but was  out at second on McWha's first base hit;  Bassett's single scored McWha, Williams  flew out to Cosgriff, and Bassett died on  second; Miles struck out on second; Mc-  Intyre was an easy out at first, Phillips  infield tap retired the side.

Murray- didn't -get a  chance in the  field, but did unusually well at bat.  Mclntyre struck out ten men in the  first game of five-and-a-half innings.  The local infield showed class while  warming up before the second game,  and deserved better luck.  Rossland has a fine pair aror d short  and third in Coen Brothers.  Williams got a bad start, but made up  once he got going, the big boy was somewhat under the weather, and didn't  seem right.  Robinson's circuit drive came with two  on. '/;���     ".;'"���'.'''

The   management  expect  a   return  game here.on Labor Day with Rossland.  About 400 turned out to the   Sunday  game.  Griffith's big town umpiring brought  a good many knocks from his own boys,  and should have been ousted after his  remarks to McWha in the first game.  Concerning Recruiting  Patriotic Bali  The social life of the city is to be  heightened next week by a ball at  the Miners' Union hall.

How long am I to serve? Until the end of the war and six  months after if required.  2. What pay shall I receive? Your  pay as a private will be one dollar  per day and ten cents' field allowance. Besides this you will be  clothed, equipped and fed by. the  government.  3. What will my wife receive during my absence? Every month there  will be paid her a separation allowance of $20 (also a part of your pay),  and if this be not enough . tQ comfortably maintain your family, the  Canadian Patriotic Fund will further  assist them.  4. What will happen if I am  wounded or sick?- You will be cared  for by the government and your  pay continued until you are discharged. If you are permanently  disabled, an allowance will be paid  you, varying according to the ex~;-  tent of your injury or disability.  5.

Kay of the  Pioneer, the two discovered they  were from the same little spot in the  old sod, i.e. the Shetlands. Mr.  Clark, who is a great traveller, and  immensely proud of his American  citizenship, once had the honor of  delining the offer of the chair of oriental languages at lidinburgh University, and speaks quite fluently in  Russian, high Danish, Spanish,  Italian, French and German. Before leaving for Winnipeg he paid  a tribute to the orderly character of  the people of Phoenix, and ^vhen  told that he had arrived only a day  or so after pay day, he was very  skeptical. While in California among the German settlements, he was  highly amused at the stories told  him of the "atrocities" perpetrated  on Germans in Canadian prisons,  and he added, "I had the greatest  difficulty in persuading to the con-  trary,.even the most intelligent of  them."

After that Bickey  was practically invincible, and received  excellent support, shutting out the home  bunch for the remaining eight innings.  Phillips got off bad, but did fine work  behind the bat as the game went on,  with such odds against them, the boys  fought a great up-hill game, and deserved to win. Phoenix didn't get into the  run column until the fifth. Phillips  opened with a two bagger, Robinson  and McWha flied out, Bassett's hit scoring Phillips. Phoenix got one more in  the sixth. Perrott lined out a three-  bagger, and scored on Miles' single.

Now, somebody blame it on the  soldiers and holler "war babies."  Says the Kootenaian: "While we  gasp with horror at the carnage of  eight or ten thousand Canadian soldiers slain on European battle  grounds, we fail to take into consideration the fact that within the  past year more than that oumber  have died in Canada from too much  booze, while the wounds inflicted by  John Barleycorn equal, if not surpass the wounds inflicted upon our  soldiers in Flanders." All of which  statements the Pioneer takes strong  The obsession that the Deity  marches at the head of the German  army, confirmed in the German  mind by the victories in Poland,  is leading her to her doom.

At the meeting of Marconi's Wireless Telegraph Co., the origin of the  German j:hain of radio-telegraph  stations of which one of the most  important (Togoland) was seized by  the allies early in the war. Godfrey  Isaacs tpid the shareholders thai  the company's world-wide program  had been hampered by German diplomacy, and they had tried unsuccessfully to arrange with the British  government for the right of erecting  high power stations-in British possessions. 'They had asked for no  money, but they were refused all  the same,' even.though they expressed a perfect willingness to hand over  the stations to.the government in  the event of war.       ;  ' Then the?'German government resolved on the building of a wireless  system extending through all the  German colonies. The stations were  erected, and he believed cost them  about $10,000,000.

A  letter from  Boundary District of British Columbia  RICH   IN   MINERAL,   AGRICULTURAL AND   LUMBERING  POSSIBILITIES���  A7MOST PROMISING FIELD FOR THE INVESTOR.  Probably no district in the Dominion of Canada possesses so great an array of  potentialities as the above.   The mountains throughout its entire length and breadth,  are almost without exception mineraliferous, containing gold, silver, copper, iron and  other valuable ores, while in a few localities there are more than surface indications  of the presence of coal.  FOREST AND MINERAL WEALTH  Its forest stretches are among the richest in the province, and what is of great  importance, easily accessable to river and railway. There is scarcely a square mile of  it that is not either equipped with high tension wires, or which could not be" reached  by the expenditure of the smallest outlay. Not the least attraction from the point of  view of the investor, is the sites for water power, which abound in this district.  Just at present an immense amount of interest is being directed to the recent  free gold discovery in Greenwood, while in the same district is to be seen one of the  best equipped free gold properties in the west, a not inconsiderable asset in these days  of industrial depression and shrinkage of gold reserves, ft is in this district where is  situated the Phoenix and Grand Forks properties of the Granby Consolidated, together with those of the British Columbia Copper company. In the former camp, and  surrounding it for miles on all sides, are acres of crown-granted mineral claims, all  awaiting-the advent of the investor. The title deeds to these properties, thanks to a  beneficent series of mining Jaws,_ ar,e unimpeachable, and if proof is wanted, of the  statement, let us point to the almost entire absence of mining litigation in the courts  of the province.  AGRICULTURE AND FfiUIT-GROWING CENTRE  The possibilities of the Boundary  as  an  agricultural and fruit-growing centre  are also worthy of investigation, and  a visit  to  some   of  its   spendidly equipped orchards will prove a revelation to the stranger.      The highways throughout the Boundary makes this section of the province-the motorists paradise, millions having been  spent on, the construction of government roads. ^  '    _", No locality" is  better served -with  railroads  than  the Boundary district.     At  present this section  is  served by  two  of the greatest systems on the continent, the  C] P.

Seventy-  two parcels of clothing-, school  books, etc., were left on the island  by Captain Kerbys'on of the British  ship Clackmananshire.  The German government are experimenting with a so-called invisible aeroplane. At three thousand  feet it is practically invisible, and at  6000 feet it cannot be seen with the  naked eye. A material called cellon  is used instead of canvas. It is  transparent, does not splinter, it is  pliable, tough like rubber and neither inflamable or affected by petrol.  It is also used on German aiitos for  wind shields.  The British army is shortly to dis  continue the use of the Indian puttee, which has been the distinguishing leg-wear of the British soldier  for many years. The decision was  arrived at as a result of last winter's  campaign in Flanders, when it was  found that the cloth puttee was little or no protection against mud  or water, the men suffeiing, not  from frost bite, but benumbed feet  and legs. The Russian boot is to  be substituted.  Timber cruisers recently returned  from an examination of the Elk,  White, Salmon and Gold rivers, report coming across a stand of one  hundred thousand acres of unalienated crown timber, containing on  an 'average about fifteen thousand  feet to the acre, representing a total  of one and a half billioo feet. The  timber is readily accessible and  grades exist that make it possible  to bring logs across the island from  Nootka to.

(Miss) Joan Arnoldi,  head  of the Field Comforts Commission,  who at present is touring the country explaining the working of the  commission,   says that the" articles  most  needed ^by  the soldiers  are:  Socks, scarfs,   half gloves, colored  handkerchiefs,   hot  water   bottles,  body  belts,   shoe  laces,  toilet and  shaving  soap,   tooth .powder, lead  pencils, insect powder, malted milk,  bovril, curry powder, hard candies,  matches,  money for cocoa, tobacco  and  more   tobacco  and   still  more  tobacco.    It is preferable that money be sent for  cocoa,  as the English product is put up in little packages.    Curry powder is also prized,  as it makes many a dish palatable  that would otherwise not be too inviting.
