OVERWHELMING DEFEAT   ��  OF GRAND FORKS SEVEN  Upwards of 750 Spectators Witness Fastest Game of Season-  Speed and Machine-Like Combination of Phoenix Seven  Wins Admiration���Grand Forks Centre Outclassed.  The Granby Consolidated Mining  Smelting & Power Co., Ltd.  Upward-, of 750 excited spectators crowded the skating rink on  Monday to witness the trial of skill  between the crack teams of this  city and the Forks. The visitors,  who previously had won two straight  games from the locals arrived flushed with victory, but as they discovered later, conditions had radically changed since the preyious  meetings, the locals having' practiced continuously and re-arranged  their ranks. The contest throughout was remarkable for speed and  cleanliness, not a dull moment  marking the three periods, the two  teams moving with machine like  precision over the ice. Combination was the order in the Phoenix  ranks and the rule "was rigidly adhered to. The play of^the Phoenix  line-up was such that to palicularize  an individual would work an injustice on the rest and the general  opinion prevails that the conduct of  all left little to-be desired.  The new goal guardian, Mitchell,  is a distinct acquisition, and proved  a tough nut for the visitors to crack.  He was, however, ably assisted by  Neil and Davidson,. making in all  a difficult defence to break through.  ,howed   a considerable im-  gave Mitchell ati opportunity to  keep from freezing; his defence was  a fine exhibition and the attempt  failed. Immediately afterwards a  similar scene took place at the  opposite end and on a .'pass from  Sayers, McKelvey sent the puck  with great speed into the visitors'  net. McQua soon after tried'Mitchell and although the latter made a  good attempt to save the effort  was futile. McKelvey again scored,  this time with a dangerous high  sjiot. Play to the end centred  very much in the red and white  territory and the second series  showed a score of 5-2 in favor,of,  the home bunch  Phoenix First Ski Tournament  The ski-ing tournament arranged  by the Phoenix Ski club,'on Sunday  brought out a very large proportion  of the population of the camp, besides attracting a number of others  from Greenwood and dutlying  points. The finest of weather was  also experienced. An unfortunate  delay in commencing, however,  made the time for the competition  rather late and there being no such  personage as a Joshua on hand to  keep the sun over the Granby glory  hole, a large number hurried to  their homes to thaw out their frozen  extremities. The   cause  of  the  delay, we understand, was the  simple fact that sunshine on a ski  course is not a condition desired by  gentlemen who go aeroplaning on  skis. The ski boys turned out in  strong force and much interest was  shown in the proceedings. The  powdery state ofthe snow made the  jumpers' task no easy one as many of  the^competitors found out,   who   by  B.C. COPPER OFFICIALS  GIVEN "SBND-OFF"  '..��'  Supt. E.

The   actual   distance      was   much  further,   but   owing   to   the   rules  which   governed    the   contests     a  jumper must land   standing   and   in  default,   a  certain   number  of feet  were deducted from his count.  Grand Forks, as usual, raced for  the Phoenix end, where some fine  checking came off, but no scores.  From now on the game was decided  on the visitors' ice. McKelvey commenced the scoring and was followed by McQua. A feature of the  final stage" was a surprising shot  by Neil from centre ice which sent  the local score up another point.  The last few minutes saw some  sprightly  hockey,. and Lynne,, 'Mc  E. Hibbert, supt. of the B.C.

The other principle speakers  were Oscar Lachmund, the new  general manager of the B.C. Copper, Mayor Deschamps of Rossland,  who reminded the assemblage that  Mr. Hibbert was at one time a resident of that camp and where also  he had still many warm friends,  Judge Hallett, Dr. Maclean and  Mr. Bell.

MAKZN  coterie place the blame on the forward meml crs of the Grand Forks'  hue up, which they appear to think  was surprisingly weak and in many  instances 'slow in following the rubber. Some considerable praise is  also bestowed on McGregor, several  of ��� whose temptiug passes Lynne  seemed to be unable to make anything good of. Mann and Ouinn  played a good game, but the king  pin of all and the busiest man  was Clarke, the visitors' net tender.  Play started strong at ten past  nine and some clever and speedy  stunts.were witnessed for close on  ten minutes, Neil and Davidson  watching closely the movementsiof  McGregor and Ware, who were repeatedly on the aggressive. Swift  and prolonged visits were also paid  to the visitors' end and the attention  of Clarke was incessantly required  in repelling shots from the forward  line of the locals. After fifteen  minutes of strenuous hockey, McKelvey found himself in possession  of the elusive puck on a neat pass  from Moore, and made the best use  of it by recording the first goal of  the game. A few minutes from  time Bassett caught on avid without  the formality of passjn^ sent it past  Clark into the net. Lynne and Ware  now seemed to become alive to the  situation and   started   off on  a visit  to the Phoenix end, the result of the  trip being a successful shot by  Lynne on a pass from Ware, making the score for the first period 2-.1  in favor of Phoenix.

It'is expected that the  party will reach the gulf next October, before the close  of navigation.  The bishop has no doubt there   are  other tribes of Eskimos   in   the , far  north.     He was stationed  on   Herschell island  seven  years  and   has  been as   far  north   as   73   degrees-  latitude  on   a whaling trip.

In addition to the cratorical feature of tlie first day of Parliament,  the formal resolutions were agreed  tb re-investing Mr. Hayward of  Cowichan w_ith his dignities as  deputy-speaker and Mr. MacGowan  (fourth member for Vancouver)  with the chairmanship of the committee of ways and meaus. D. M.  Eberts, K.C., was re-elected speaker of the House.  'In his speech from the throne,  the Lieut.-Governor touched briefly  upon the prevailing satisfactory conditions throughout the province,  both financial and industrial, the  visit Jast summer of the Duke and  Duchess of Connaught, the mission to  Ottawa of the-premier and attorney-  general and the satisfactory results  to be expected from it, the rapid  and substantial progress of railway  construction and the possible, further extension of colonization  lines already provided for, the  comprehensive investigations and  informative reports of the taxation, municipal and Doukhobor  commissions, and legislation naturally to be looked for based upon the  recommendations of these bodies,  the inquiries now being prosecuted  by the agricultural, labor and milk  commissions, the proposed establishment of an independent audit  branch, the necessary amendment  of various provincial statutes. The  possibility of further university  legislation as well as of legislation  necessitated by prospective increases  in the judiciary, . and the intention  to create a public park at Mount  Robson as well as of developing a  similiar provincial park at Kaien  Island near Prince Rupert.  The public accounts for the last  fiscal year, which were presented  by the minister of finance, Price  Ellison, on the opening day, show  the   satisfactory   condition   ot   the  province's' business and its substantial   growth    during    the    twelve  months under  review,   an  increase  of revenue over that of the preced  ing year  of $252,816.55  being   re,  corded,   while   the  increase 'in  the  aggregate  of public   expenditures,  keeping pace sympathetically   with  the growth ^and development of all  parts of the province; amounted to  $2,944,221.40, the grand totals for  the contrasted   periods of the last  three fiscal periods being as follows:  Net  revenues:  1909-10,   $8,874,-  741.84;    1910-11,    $10,492,892.27;  1911-1912, $10,745,708.82.  Net expenditures: 1909-10, $6,-  382,993.27; 1910-11, $8,194,802/25;  $1911-12, $11,189,024.55.    ���  At the close of the fiscal year the  balance sheet of the, province showed a total of provincial assets over  all liabilities of $1,054,378.82.  The forty-first report upon the  work of the public schools of British  Columbia, which was also tabled is  eloquent testimony not only to the  activities of this important department, but also to the rapidity of  provincial growth, both rural and  urban. At the close of the school  year, on June 30 last, the total enrolment ' in all British Columbia  schools'and colleges was 50^170, an  increase over the previous year of  5045. In 1907 the total enrollment  was but 30,039, showing that the  school- population must have almost doubled within half a decade.  The expenditure for education  proper, shows in comparison with  similar "expenditure last year and  five years ago was: 1907, $407,937.-  85; 1911| $716,733.59; 1912, $876,-  415.08., The cost of new schools,  furniture, repairs and'improvements  generally for school property, within  a' twelvemonth, just five years ago,  was $65,892.74, and the total cost  totthe province for all purposes of  education: Education proper, $407,-  BAKING POWDER  A pure, healthful, Cream of  Tartar Bakittg Powder  When buying an article of food you are  entitled to know exactly what you are buying  ���its quality and ingredients.       \  If this information is refused don't buy it.  .    , Some of the low grade baking powders are  advertised, but the ingredients of the powders  are scrupulously concealed.

A Leprous Knight  Although some little objection has  been raided in Canada1 to the acceptance   by   Canadians   of  titles,   the  most radical opponent of the system  .jWill   find   little   to   object'to   if  the  |cases singled   out for Royal notice  bore   the   stamp   of  merit- as   that,  covering   the     distinction    recently  conferred   by   rjis   Majesty  on   Dr.  George Turner,  a British physician,  resident in South Africa.      The circumstances surrounding this particular  case  are  unique, and never has  iin honor been conferred under such  pathetic   circumstances.      Here   we  have a man among men, entitled to  wear the   insignia  of  a knight, and  instead   of graceing   the  halls and  drawing rooms of the highest in the  land we   find   him  in   a   little world  of his own, isolated from the the rest  of'he world, smitten with one of the  worst diseases thac flesh is heir to���  leprosy���contracted while in charge  ot   the   leper  asylum    at   Pretoria,  South   Africa.     All   honor   is   due  the   memory    of   the   late   Father  Damien,     whose     life    and   death  among   the    leper    outcast   sent "a  thrill   through   ;he   civilized world,  but the  case  of Sir George Turner  is   different,   for   while,   the  former  lingered among them for the princi  pie purpose  of offering   the. solace  of religion, the latter was busily en  i  Winter Clothinj  Overcoats,  Mackinaws, Underwear,  Rubbers, Hats, Caps, Mitts,. Gloves  Jaegers' Pure Wool Specialties  What Others Have Done  The Colonist has rendered a  service   to   all    who   favor   Canadian  support   to   Imperial    defence     by  collecting and publishing the   exact  value   of the   contributions   of the  different sections ofthe  empire, to  the upkeep of the British navy.    To  summarise, New Zealand  gives  an  annual   contribution   of  $1,000,000  in addition   to   a  gift  of a   battle-  cruiser and three destroyers costing  $13,000,000.      Australia  hai  contributed^!,000,000 a year  for   the  past decade and  has   now  donated  a   fleet   unit   to   cost  $20,000,000.  South Africa gives $425,000 a  year  and is talking of special   contribution.     Newfoundland   has   risen   to  the modest donation  of $24,000  a  year.     India has contributed $830,-  000 a year.    Comparing these   with  Canada's proposed contribution, we  find that the  $35,000,000  proposed  to   be   expended  on   dreadnoughts  will cost at four per   cent.   $1,400,-  000 a year.    This is equal to a contribution of \7%   cents, per   capita.  New , Zealand's     contribution      is  $1.50   per   capita;   Australia's   75  cents, whilst   the   United  Kingdom  has to bear a levy   of  no   less   than  $5 per head per-annum.      And   yet  there are some people who say that,  'Canada has risen   to   the   occasion!  Such people should at least bear   in  mind that if the three dreadnoughts  proposed   to   be    "lent"    will    cost  Canada $1,400,000   per  annum   for  interest, they, will cost the people of  Great Britain $9,000,000 per annum  to maintain.

KNOB HILL AVENUE  J  ��� v    An Important Step  ���  An important step has'been taken  by Hon. Frank,Cochrane, Minister  .of Railways, vyith a vview , to protecting the government and the public along1 the line of the new Hudson  Buy Railway from ��� Le Pas, the  western terminus, to Port Nelson,  the ocean port.  The government has: decided to  reserve a strip,of land a half mile  wide on each side of the railway  from Le Pas to Port Nelson. The  intention is to protect the public  from land speculators and to make  certain that all the townsites and  necessary terminals along the road  will be in the hands of the government. Official notice of the intention of the government has already  been given through Canada Ga-  zetec.  If this action had been takeu by  the old government, as it should  have been, the Canadian people  would have been saved many thousands of dollars. Mr. Cochrane  finds that the necessary terminals  for the road at Le Pas will cost tfee  country a big sum running up into  the tens of thousands. The property  was all allowed to fall into the  hands of private owners, and as land  has been booming at the new terminal, the cost for yards, etc., will  be heavy. .Mr,,Cochrane when he  fonnd the .state of affairs which  existed arranged with Hon. Dr.  Roche, Minister of the Interior, to  have a strip reserved   for   the   gov-  der, yet  the   conditions  existing   in  such cities as Montreal and Toronto  are undeniably notorious. Very few  will   advocate   the   same wages for  both   sexes,   and yet   such  a  policy  is   quite   logical, for   under such   a  system very   few   employers   would  employ women   at   all   and the ultimate consequence would be that the  great majority of girls would find a  more congenial   occupation  in looking after household   establishments  of their own.  If Tired of Wood, try Princeton Coal  A Colossal Liar  Interviewed in Boston the other  day, Mr , Bourrassa, gave expression to sentiments that we all know  he has possessed for many years  and which stamp him as one of the  most colossal liars that ever drank  pea soup in Canada. If he had  confined his remarks to the opinion  held by the majority of his French-  Canadian confreres little attention  would be paid him, but when he  stigmatizes the whole resident population of this Dominion as a people  groaning under .the weight of tyranny, he must know he is giving  expression to a pack of contemptible lies.     Here is what he says:  "The feeling between Canada and  ICogland to-day is much similar to  what the feeling was between England and the thirteen colonies in  1775, and it will ultimately end in  absolute freedom for Canada."  |  BOOKS   AND   STATIONERY  Fancy Goods, Dolls and Toys, Kodak Films and  Supplies, Musical Instruments and Supplies, Newspapers, Magazines and Periodicals���School Sundries.

McDonald  Proprietor  II you were told of a new  discovery ior'the treatment of  coughs,  colds and bronchitis,  as certain in its action on all  chest troubles as anti-toxin is  on diphtheria, or vaccination on  small-pox,   wouldn't   you ieel  like giving it a trial ?   Especially  ii you could try it for fifty cents!  Peps is the discovery 1  Peps are little tablets, neatly wrapped   in   air  and germ-proof silver foil  They contain  certain  medicinal ingro  dients, which, when placed   upon   tho  tongue, immediately turn into vapour,  and are at once breathed down tho air  passages to the luuga.    Ou their journey,  they soothe the inflamed and irritated  5 membranes of tbe bronchial tubes, the  : delicate walla of the air passage*, and  I finally enter and carry relief and healing  I to the capillaries and tiny air saoe in tbe  lung*.  In a word, while no liquid or solid  can get to the lungs and air passages,  thcao Peps fumes get tb*re direct, and  at once commenco their work of healing.  Pcpj are entirely distinct from,the  old fashioned liquid cough cures, which  are merely owallowod into the stomach,  and never reach the lungs.. Peps treatment of coughs and colds is direct treatment.  If you have not yet tried Peps, out  out this article, write across it  the name and data of this paper,  and mail it (with la stamp to  pay return postage) to Peps Co.,  Toronto.
