Notwithstanding the severity of the below zeio  weather, the rink was crowded uith  interested spectators, the Grand Kgiks  club having arrived f>om the Smelter  City on a special train, for ��hii h 65  tickets had been sold. The ice was  in good shape, and all the players were  anxious for the fray. The final ,score  was 10 to 5, in favor of the Phoenix  club.  The players were lined upas follows:  Phoenix. Position.

But the fates were against them  this time, and while they put up an  excellent game and did some splendid  individual playing, they did not seem  to woik together like the players on  the home team. At the end of the  first half the scoie stood 6 to 3, in  favor of Phoenix, and the final score  was in the same ratio, or 10 to 5.-  After the game the visitors were  tendeieu a banquet at the Dominion  House, where Manager Gillis put up a  good spread.

The ore  thus far sent out has gone to. the  Greenwood and Granby smelters. The  ore bunkers of the mine are lull, holding in the neighborhood of 400^' tons,  the ore having been taken out in the  course of development, as nothing, in  the way of stoping has been done since  work was resumedrecen-ly by the reorganized company.  Mr.  Duncanson   was   in  the city  Thursday, and stated, to  the  Pioneer  that the work now being done at the  Golden Crown was of an, encouiaging  chiracter,  and   some   excellent   ore  bodies were being .exploited.   The ore  now being taken  out  was not being  sorted/and was coming from the  100-  foot level.   On this  level, when Mr.  Duncanson took charge, he began at  the face of the west drift, .which was  25a feet from the shaft.    He drifted  60 feet and then crosscut the ore body  11 feet.   Then the drift was extended  42 feet, and a crosscut was run for. 30  feet'    At'thVend   of this" crosscut  more drifting'on the ore was  done . to  the extent of 62   feet    Here a raise  has been  started, "which  is now  up  about 20 feet,' all in ore.    These workings is where the ore is  being" taken  from.  Other Work Beioc Done.  In addition to the development on  the 100-foot level in the Golden  Grown, other exploratory work is being  prosecuted. At the 150-foot level some  18 feet of drifting has been done,  which is in ore. Some work is also  being done on the 300-foot level of the  mine. Beginning at a point about 60  feet from the shaft, the level has been  driven about 25 feet in the serpentine  dyke that is the character of the rock  at that point.  During the year 1900, immediately  following the completion of the railway  track to the property, the Golden  Crown shipped steadily for some time,  sending about 2,250 tons of ore to the  Tiail smelter, from which satisfactory  returns were received. But the freight  and treatment rate was so high���about  $7.50 per ton or more���that it did not  leave much profit for the owners of the  mine, who had been working there for  several years. A little later the mine  was closed, and did not reopen til  after the reorganization on an assessable basis last fall. A force ol" 1S men  is employed at the property.  J. B. Boyle's residence, on Gospel  Hill, has been completed, and the  painters will be done with the Martin  residence on Old Ironsides  this week.  avenue,  For the last week the weather has  been so cold that but little curling has  qeen.going on at the local rink, but it  is hoped to get up a rink to attend the  bon'spielat Sandon, which will beheld  on the 17th iiut.  Last week Friday two games were  played with curlers from Grand Forks,  with the following results : Boucher,  skip, 14; Spenc r, skip, 10; Crawford,  skip, 9; Traunweiser, skip, 14. The  total. f the two was Grand Forks, .24;  Phoenix, 23.  1 .JL. .

That is  the question for 1902 for the V., V. _  E., and the projected Similkameen  railway." With moderate encouragement, there can be no doubt the question will be answered in the affirmative.  After seven months' struggle, the  Rossland Miners' Union has declared  the strike off at the Le Roi mine. Ap  parently, however, neither the union  men nor the mine managers seem to  have much use for Bernard Mac-  Donald.     " '  The liberals of the province will  meet in more or less solemn conclave  next week at Vancouver, and will try  to pat Joe Martin on the back, in preference to having his enmity. It's a  good wager, however, that the wily  Joe has many a trick in reserve in hjs  sleeve yet. He's the hardest man to  down from Montreal to Vancouver.  1  Many are asking the ^question  now,  however, why the C P. R. should _e  'dragging the matter up 'once more,  '���wh'eh'itwVas' thought to  have   befcn  settled.    But the answer is apparently  simple., The Ci P. R. is merely plan-  ' ning a campaign to stir up public feeling in regard to that portion of the  Crow's Nest Pass coal lands,  which  are yet held in reserve, jsa-that-wheri  -the time'comes, these lands, may be  -   held in the control of the great Canadian railway company or its friends.  F WHAT EDITORS SAY .  No one complains here because the  Dominion government is doing what  it thinks will ilevelop the East. 'Ihe  complaint is that it is doing nothing  to develop the West���Colonist.  The Victoria personal government,  composed almost wholly of spoilsmen,  pure and simple, must be dethroned,  at all hazzards, if the interior is ever to  get justice in representation. Until  this is done, no stable government can  be established for any part of 'the province.���Columbia Evening Sun.  -'The present condition of the jiro-  vincial government is a strong argument in favor of party lines.

British Columbia's mineral output  last year was valued at $20,000,000,  berng an inciease of 25 per cent, over  1900 The remarkable increase is the  more satisfactory * because of the  country being smitten with a scourge  of croakers.���Slocan Drill.  ���>���.tf8r,\-  ,     'ft t&. fj  <__ \W\\  i_Srsr    '   '  Ofcourse,  the articles referred  fo  profess the loftiest and most disinterested motives, and from  the standpoint  .of the writers are certainly Jnost in-"  ygeniously'gotleifop. --.But they areT'in  Vahe interest of th�� C-P�� R.  nevertheless, and those acquainted  with"' the  facts are not hoodwinked by the specious arguments advanced.    As showing that there is really little cause  for  alarm, we have yet  to hear  that  the  management of any of the independent  smelters of the province are  worrying  over the possibility of the fuel supply   being cut   off.  1  , Probably no corporation has done  more for the development of Canada  than the C P. R., especially in the far  western portion of.the Dominion, At  the same time the company has been  -assisted liberally by both provincial  and Dominion governments.

The kiijd of. man needed at the head  of provincial affairs is thus described  by the Sandon -Paystreak :  T|ie province of British Columbia  needs a man at the head of its govern-  mem; who will*build the C.ast-Koot  enay'road with money raised on the  credit of the province of British Columbia. This road might be ojierated by  the province or leased to the highest  bidder.'

The, British Columbia Review of  London, Eng, chronicles the fact that  a shipment of mica had lately been  received there from" near Revelstoke,  in this, province. The quality, adds  the Review, is said to be unusually  good and the deposit is to be worked  on a |arge scale. Mica deposits, where  the product is of the better kind, are  quite valuable. There is a deposit in  Cariboo which is said to be the largest  known in the world. Sheets of unusual  size, almost as clear as glass, can be  obtainad from it. The inaccesibility  ol the deposit^ however, p revents ,it  iiom being utflired. When Cariboo  is given railway facilities the deposit  will be worked and another important  resource added to those of the province.  A HINT TO MERCHANTS.  A Sure Way to  Increase the  Valume ol  Business.  I hej'ioneer desires to drop a hint  to merchants for.this year. Boundary  is rapidly increasing its output, and  the importance of telling the people  what you have is increasing. It is  impossible to compete successfully in  any line of business unless attention is  paid to this feature. And when you  advertise do it light. Advertise with  life and activity. Talk to the point.  Tell the people what you want to sell,  and show why they should buy.  Change your tads. Give the same  careful attention to this feature of > our  business that you do other features  It is no longer any use to argue that  advertising does no pay. Practicil  experience has demonstrated that it  does pay,*and pays big.' The question  is to handle it properly. The Pioneer  is lead _y hundreds of people each  week It'will pay any man, if he is  only selling peanuts, to use its columns  to talk to the people. Try it, and do  it judiciously.  H. S. CAVLCV. W.

PROPRIETORS  The deel iration of a one per rent,  dividend on the shares of the Amalgamated Com 'any���which by the way,  is capitali7.1l at $i55',6'bo,ooo���has  given the b -��rs their quietus, and copper in the United States market is  again climbi jj the golden stairs, says  an exchange. New York stock quotations on the vst Dec, were 15V., or  a recovery of something like 58 points  during the List week ol the month,  and those wise ones who know, maintain that copper will again be king. So  much from a stock exchange point of  view.  Explanation!:, solutions, or whatever  they may be termed, as to the sudden  drop in  the market,   have been  the  order of the day, and  the  "slump  in  copper" has almost become a stereotyped    expression.     Evidently    the  guessing contest���foi that  is  what  it  revolved itself into���did not solve the  riddle as to "when the Amalgamated  is not Amalgamated."   ���  Have Aa Object.  Wkethcr the surplus stocks  said to  be in the hands of the Amalgamated  Co., was represented or otherwise,  is  not of sufficient importance to necessitate the mine owneis of B.  C.  laying  in a stock of soothing  syrups.    It  is  well known that the  men  controlling  the destinies of this huge ti 11st are not  wanting 111 business acumen to the extent of allowing a drop of from   18  |o  la cents a pound, without a reason  wholly satisfactory to the wire pullers.  Stock rigging, gambling,  and  an  im  aginary surplus, (200,000,000 pounds,  that's all) will,'in the writer's opinion,  a.-count ior the action of such a  trust  \6 bear the market, and ity take advantage of the drop,  which they  had  brought about.    It seems  nure  than  probable, that some of those bears will -  be cornered yat. |  One is not likely to commit siich an  error as that of accusing the stock exchanges of having such a sensitive  aicessoiy as a "conscience, -to possess  which would be most inconvenient and  a nuisance. Nor would one go to  such a school to acquire business morality. These 'organizations are the  mills which the "Trust Gods" use to  grind their grist, large or small, as  controlling interests may direct and  money can cover up or blind adulterations; the millers get left occasionally.  Boundary's Advantage.  The excitement consequent on the  si'uation having somewhat cooled  down, we ran cainly leview ihe position of the p|>i��jviii(e as a coppei  piodurer, and the effect on such  euteiprises, piovidcd the miners had  to face a ten cent per pound market.  Asa matter of business economy,  we will lake our low-grade Boundaiy  ore, treated by the smelteis there assuming they put through 500 tons per  diem, of three- per rent, ore, which  would lie ,15 tons of copper, and sup  posing by way of illustration, coppei  to be at ten cents per |>ound, the gioss  letuins per day would be .$3,000, deduct s-y y$ fur working expenses, refining, etc., or roughly, seven cents per  pound, leaves a net margin of $1,000  per diem.  It's tiue the Rio Tinto people caii  produce copper for thiee cents per  pound, and perhaps less,'but the wages  paid account to a large extent lor this,  as 50 to 85-cents per day are the ruling wages paid in that part of Europe,  combined with other caiy conditions,  which ceilainly aie not obtained h> le  as yet. However, the jCalumet and  Hecla, and the Anaconda, who can  produce copper at from, six lo eight  cents per pound, aie parallel cases to  those existing here, so that from these  sources we have nothing to tear aud  can more than hold our own.  The improved machinery and methods of treating, which aie used in  connection with the mine workings of  the proyince, enable our mine owners  to produce at a minimum cost; at all  events, as economically as our neighbors in the United States, if not more  so.  Profit-On 60 Cent Ores.  . At the Detroit Mining Co.,'Arizona,  according to Mr. Gordon MacLean,  the superintendent, they_can treat ores  valued at sixty cents a ton, at a profit.  If such is the case, British Columbia  with fuel, flux and mineral Ibccssed, as  it were, at her smelting points, possesses  advantages that place her far away  superior to her competitors on this  continent. Again, B. C. copper ores  mpstly carry fair gold values with other  by-pioducts of consideration, hence  will always be a good investment.  The fiscal'policy of the Dominion,  unfortunately, throws Jus nolens volens  into the U. S. market as' an outlet for  our production, and it is a matter ol  regret that a policy so entirely antago  nistic to the home countrv should be  maintained at the expense of the development of our re oure'es, which,  under reciprocal  conditions)  beneath  DOMINION POSTAL RETURNS.  Increase of Thirteen Million Let'ers Mc'led  Last Year.  Theie were 287, new post offices  open in the Dominion during the fiscal  year 1901, and 13,375,000 more letters  were carried than in the pieviousyear.  The number of postal notes issued and  paid during the ye.ir increased from  760,250 to 877,399, the aggregate  value of the )ear's issue being $1,459,-  015, an increase of $108,349.

The department arranged during the  year with the United States a plan foi  the simplification of the 'exchange of  money oiders and postal notes between  these two countries, the result being  that an agreement was come to whereby the United States pays all money  orders and postal notes drawn on it by  the Dominion of Canada h the same  manner as if the orders were to be  paid by the Dominion itself. This  agreement practically adds lo the list  the names of .some 30,000 offices in  the United States upon which the  Canadian-Post Office Department may  now issue money orders' and postal  notes. Canada renders a similar service to the United States.  The amount deposited-, in the ^ post  office.savings bank at the close of the  year was $39,95o,8i2,'an inciease of  $2>44S>356, being'the largest balance  at the close of any othei year  The total revenue of the department  increas d during the year by $238,924}  Notwithstanding the reduced postage  to two cents at the close of two yeais  from the time this reduction took place,  the monthly levenue has grown to exceed what it had been under the high  er previously existing rates.

Republic Mines Anxious to Start  Shipments  at Once.  The bridge at Curlew, on the Grand  Forks-Republic railway will be finished  in about a week and from that point  on the rails will be laid at the rate of  one and a half mjlps a day, so that the  track will be in Republic by Feb. 15th.  The company is booking Ireight now  for delivery in Republic on that date.  The company's flat cai s bought tn the  east, are on the way loaded with 150  tons of rails, sufficient to complete the  line. There are 30 01 e cars at Grand  Forks belonging to the company and  besides they aie hiring 30 more from  the C. P. R., giving a total of 60 cars  at theii disposal. Passenger coaches  are on the way and also two laige  engines each weighing 107 tons, of the  Cook type, specially designed for the  hauling of heavy loads.  It is said that so anxious are the  Republic mines to ship that some were  hauling the ore to Curlew to be ready  as soon as the bridge was finished,  and the i ail way would have directly  tiibutary to it, and all practically on  the side of "the track, fifteen ai sixteen  which have been developed far enough  to maintain steady shipments.

All of these  but one or two are out of debt, so that  receipts from ore shipments will go at  once toward the paying of dividends.  The railway e.\pects to haul from 25  to 30 cars of ore per day. All the  ore hauled by the U. and G! F. railway will go to Grand Forks for treatment.  Copper's Bright Outlook.  The year 1002 certainly looks good  to us from a business standpoint, and  there is every . reason ��� to look for a  large copper output, says the Western  Mining World. The present price of  copper need not worry us, for it is at  its low point now, and for a short  temporary period at that. The influences that have caused it are rapidly  being changed, and almost any bright  morning we may awake to find that:  copper has risen above fifteen cents, to  remain permanently there The business forces demand it, and it would  have been theie all along had it not  been for a few shortsighted interests  who, figuratively speaking, killed the  goose that laid the golden egg. The  pocketbooks of the Michigan stockholders are doing the work of education  necessary to bring the management, to  its senses, and there is a howl going up  that cannot be long silenced.  ranVdian /->  V ?A��1 FIG*}\{.
