The'most important mining- news  of the"past week was  the  strike  of  about a foot, of rich   silver-lead  ore  at the 1000-foot level of the Suprise  mine.    The drift   has  been run  on  the ore for the past  week  and   the  vein averages 12  inches  in  width.  The ore will run about   150  ounces  in silver and from 40 to 60 per cent.  lead to tbe" ton.  David Murphy, an experienced  miner, will, early next week, with a  force of men, pit mp"t he'water from the  shaft and begin the work of deepening it. The owners believe that the  property can be made a valuable one  with the expenditure of a not very  large, sum.. The owners are all old  timers in Rossland���Duncan Mc-  Donell, Wm. Costello, Samuel McDonald and David Murphy.���Rossland Miner.  ,  Owing to the fact that the South  Belt is forming to the front, the  owners of the Trilby have determined to resume its development. Considerable work' was done by the  Trilby Mining in the early days,' and  there is one shaft 50 feet deep - and  another 40, besides other workings.  In the bottom of, the 50-foot shaft  there is a large and strong showing  of pyrrhotite ore, the characteristc  ore of the camp, that runs about  .$iOtojhe ton.,-.- --..~~". -.���-._.,  PHOENIX, B.C.,,SATURDAY, DECEMBER' 21,  19J2  Phoenix Public School  Division II. of the public school  with a percentage of 92 walked off  with the December attendance banner, which last month was held by  the pupils of Division III.

Davidson Elected  President���Stars to Be Placed on Senior Teams.  if i  What is  undoubtedly a splendid  movement with the object of furthering  a    more    general   interest   in  Canada's     national    winter   game  has  had   its  inception  in, Phoenix.  For some time  the  matter and  details of some scheme of encouraging  the   youngsters   has   been   quietly  discussed among the cnthusiastsof  the   camp,    ancl   this    week   active  steps were taken towards the forma-;'  tion    of    an    intermediate    hockey  team.     Similar action has also been  decided upon in   both  Grand Forks  and Greenwood, where swift teams'  of youngsters   already   exist.  .As a  consequence  of  the- above   action,  , Boundary Ore Tonnages  "Following are the returns of the  output of the Granby mines, and  smelter for the week ending Dec.  15th, and the B.C. Copper company  for the week ending Dec. 8st, and  .yeartb-date:       <���.

Retrain bandit. ���, ���   .-  the institution of, a Boundary Intermediate league is now an assured  fact.. . t  It is confidently hoped that,.in  time one effect of the formation of  the league will be the elimination,of  the necessity of sending east for  players to. fill the various positions  on the Boundary teams. At the  best the system has nothing to recommend about it, "and in consequence a considerable number of  Boundaryites have ceased to take  any.interest in the matches, which','  they' affirm, , are almost entirety  stripped of local interest by reason  of the imported persohel of' tVje  teams. But with home-raised talent  a different spirit will assuredly manifest itself among the general public,  who after all is said aud 'done aire  the ones to be chiefly considered."  In-4.be meantime, however, we" musSt*  put up with what we' can 'get, and  by "our interest and support work  for the success of the intermediate  teams. ,  The initial meeting took'place on  Thursday'at   the'club,   Messrs.  J.  W. Cochrane and "G. McDonald representing Greenwood and Messrs.  A.    White    and    R.   Clark   lboked  after the interests of Phoenix.     Unfortunately  Grand   Forks   was   not  represented,   but   \t   is   understood  that   the   hockey   boys   and   public  generally of the fruit centre are enthusiastically in line with the movement, the object of which it is officially   announced,   "is  for the    purpose of fostering and perpetuating  the,game    of hockey   among   the  young men'of the Boundary district,  and     also    to   bring   about    more  amicable relations  in   the   realm  of  sport among" the people of the three  Boundary   towns."      It   was   also  agreed to name the association the  Boundary      Intermediate    " Hockey  League.  The following were elected  to fill  the various honorary and executive    offices:     Hon./presidents,  J.   :E.    Thompson,    Phoenix;    Dr.  Stone,, Greenwood;   Ernest" Miller,  M..P:P., Grand Forks.  C. j. David-  r       **  son,,president; A. Mann, vice-pres.;  Jan  61 Greenwood at Phoenix  Jan   0 Phoenix at Grand Forks  Jan 16 Greenwood at Grand Forks  Jan 21 Phoenix  _ at Gieenwood  Jan 27 Grand Porks at Phoenix  Above dates are subject to change.  The New Rink  While the date for the opening of  the  season   for   the  rink   has  not  been definitely fixed, it is generally  thought  that Xmas  Eve or Xmas  Day will see the first skating crowd  of the  season.      Strictly  speaking  the entire  roofing  is now in place,  but   considerable  work  on   the   interior fittings has  yet to  be done.  W. Hower, manager ofthe Phoenix  Water, and Light company has commenced the  work of installing the  electric  light system,   which   when  completed    will     brilliantly   illume  every corner ofthe building.    Ed.  Stanaway commenced  the   making  of ice a few days ago and already a  splendid foundation is to be seen.  That Smelter Site Story  The old story to the effect that  the Granby Cohsolidated company  were undecided as to the location of  their smelter site for the Hidden  creek mines has been revived again,  but it need not arouse the slightest  feelings of alarm in the bosoms of  the Granby Bay townsite promoters.  Neither will it enhance the value of  lots in Prince Rupert, from which  city it  is  said the report emanated  Licenses in Phoenix   .  Permit me through  the medium  ofthe Pioneer   to  point out what I  consider to be a serious flaw in the  license  regulations of this  city, or  rather I should say the enforcement  of the same.    When first  I arrived  in Phoenix for  the  purpose  ofdis-  posing of   real  estate,   I   was  informed that  it would be necessary  for me to take out a license.  " I. immediately, and without any demur,  called on the city clerk and paid my  license fee of $50.    I have no cause  to  complain  of the  by-law,  on the  contrary I  think  it only right that  outsiders doing business in the city  should  contribute towards  the upkeep of the municipality.    But what  I do most strenuously complain   of  is  the  flagrant  immunity that  for  months has been granted other nonresidents who have transacted thousands of dollars in real estate business within the confines of the city's  limits.    Might I suggest, in view of  the fact   that I am   about   the only  party  who has  complied   with   the  law in this  respect for at least two  years, that either the by-law be repealed,  or  else a   more  consistent  enforcement of its provisions be insisted upon.

Mr. Gardiner, declares that.if Mr.

he has made no serious breach in
his millions. He has given away
something like 40 -millions sterling;
,bu.t as fast as he dispenses, the balance accumulates. Once, it is said,
lie did seem to be shifting his golden
mountain, but then came an appreciation in his steel .trust securities
and once more lie was foiled.
"It is a pitiful thing to be   struggling uiiavailingly. ■"'■ ■'   ■
"Mr. Carnegie has failed to get
rid of his fortune by building his
fifteen hundred libraries and his six
thousand'church'organs, his palaces
of peace and his institutions, and by
founding his' Scottish university
schemes aiuhhis hero funds in all
countries.' Why:don't he try another? Why don't he spend the rest of
his day's"and his"'resources "m waring against the twelve hour day and
the seven day week of steel -trust?
That trust is the most colossal
monument that the mammon of j
modern industry has conceived. I

supremacy in gun firing , was
assured, i .     -.;■. - ;■;'•, •;■■.. ■■• -.
■No little surprise, consequently,
has been caused by a/circumstantial
report that in the special tests the
invention has fallen far short ojf
what was expected  and claimed for
it.     .'.-■,-■■
According to the report, the battleships Thunderer and Orion steamed out of Bantry bay in a heavy sea,
tlie former was fitted with the new
invention, while the latter was
equipped with the ordinary naval
fire control. The firing was at a
range of ten thousand yards, and
the Orion completly demolished the
target with her heavy g"uns, while
the Thunderer in the first three
salvos of ten shots each failed to
hit it, although the last two salvos
struck and destroyed it.
In a previous trial, the Thunderer
completely beat the 0ri°", making
fifty per cent or more hits against
the Orion's ten per cent at 10,000
yards in- a hea\w sea.

From all accounts  Mr. Hufty had a"miraculous escape  from death, his clothing having  caught on a set screw attached to  a rapidly revolving shaft.

A few friends  were given invitations and all present  seemed to thoroughly enjoy the affair.  Mra. Knight presided at the piano and  was ably assisted by the violin music  of Chas. Kay.  W. B. Marks, the successful and  popular professor of dancing came into  town on Saturday from Giand Forks.  He intends to commence a course of  dancing lessons and would like all  those 'desirous of taking lessons to  hand in th'eir names at once.' Mr.  Marks spent -the - greater part of the  past summer * and < fall in the district  around Tulameen where Ire has taken  up land' aud is interested in several  likely looking claims. While in the  Tulameen he met' quite a nnmber of  old Phoenicians; among them was the  Bros. Butterworth, who have taken  up land about a mile from Tulameen  city, and the Hon. Joe Thompson, who  has secured an appointment as a dispenser'of thrdatwash and nosepaint.  Joe relieves the monotony with an  occasional chat with a,capitalist to  whom he is a veritable, mine of information on the diamond fields and olivine dikes of the Tulameen. With  thel exception^ of' a' slight eyestrain,  caused; ii)in said,, by his search-for  Koh-i-nors and Cullinans.the popular  old-timer's,shealth is very good., He  goes about unarmed, as usual, and  occasionally "blows* about' his never  having been1 held up.  t iai ���-:   Our Trade Routes Unprotected  In introducing his naval policy  in the House' of Commons, the  prime minister spoke of the inade  quate defence of the empire's trade  routes' as ^''impressive and even  startling." With every available  exertion of' the empire the predominance*1'of Great Britain in the  Mediterranean could not be restored  before 1915 or 1916.  ��� Upon our own coasts, both Atlantic and Pacific, powerful squadrons were maintained twelve years  ago. Today the flag is not shown  on either Seaboard. I am assured  that the aid which we purpose will  enable such special arrangements to  be consummated that without  courting disaster at home, an effective fleet of battleships and cruisers  can ,be established in the Pacific,  and a .powerful squadron can  periodically visit our Atlantic seaboard and assert once more the  naval strength of the empire along  these coasts. I do not forget, however, that it is the general naval  supremacy of the empire which  primarily safeguards the, overseas  dominion. New Zealand's battleship is ranged in line with the other  British battleships in the North  Sea because there New Zealand's  interests may best be guarded, by  protecting the very heart of the  empire.  Mr. Borden laid stress upon the  fact that Canada was hot beginning  a system of regular and periodical  contributions, but was meeting a  graye situation requiring immediate  action |.  The solution of the question of  permanent co-operation, Mr. Borden  declared to be not impossible, "and,  however difficult.the task may be, it  is not the part of wisdom or of  statesmanship to evade it. And so  we invite the statesman of Great  Britain to study with us, this, the  real problem of Imperial existence."  FpZSgZZSgb**  FOR SALE  Team of first class mules for sale,  very quiet.
