The two  ladies  are    th-5    representatives   iri'  England of ihe Canadian Field Comforts Commission and are even now  receiving  and   distributing   belated  Christmas presents  that have  been  held up by the shipping'and railroad  .  congestion.    According  to the colonel the  commission have a suffici-  cient supply of wristlets  and  Balaclava  helmets.      What   they   need  now  are   more  socks,   gloves   and  underwear.      Many   battalions  are  now. asking  for  large   quantities of  these preparatory to goi'ig to France  and   contributions   of (hese articles  should   be   addressed   direct to  the  Amesbury Vicarage,.Salisbury Plain,  England.     The . correspondent    of  the Winnipeg  Free  Press earnestly  asks   the Canadian    public   to support these ladies  in   their efforts  on��  behalf of the Canadian troops.  The ��� Pioneer is informed that at  meeting of the Spinsters club, held  recently, it was unanimously decided  to forward immediately the sum of  forty dollars to the Misses Plummer  and Arnoldi, above-mentioned, t,o  be used for the purchase of such  comforts ns they deem necessary;  preference, if possible, to be accorded the claims of the boys from Phoenix, Grand Forks and Greenwood.  Alex., McDonald, who was up at  Franklin' camp   during   the   week,  brings back  encouraging reports of  that locality.     He  says   that   there  is  an   unusually   large-  number  of  prospectors    at   work   this   winter,  and all whom   he  met  appeared   to  be filled with   the liveliest optimism  as to the future of the. camp.   Julius  Carson, of Phoenix and Geo.  Todd  of Grand Forks', are included in the  number.    They   are  at   work   on a  tunnel which   at  present  is running  through    a     body    of   mineralized  white  quartz.    Jim  McDonald and  Forepaw have  driven   a tunnel  for  80 feet, and at the  time  of the visit  they had gone through 15ft of ledge  matter,   and   on   the   claim   of   T.  Newby of Grand Forks a tunnel had-  been cut  through   about six  feet M-  solid   ore.      Twelve  mun    were   -it  work   on   the   Union   mine,    which  is shipping two cars a week.-  r  Mining Notes of British Columbia .  Phoenix Wins  The local septette, accompanied  by. a number-of Phoenix- bbosters,-  chartered another special on Friday  and invaded Grand Forks.   A recent  i  thaw made skating hard work for  both sides and after a strenuous  game the visitors were declared the  victors by a score of "1-nil. The return match will ' be played some  time during the'coming week and  an interesting game is confidently  predicted.  Copper Market  The copper market has continued  buoyant and prices have gone oh  advancing quite steadily. Lake is  now 15 to-15y& cents and electrolytic is 14^ to 14j�� cents, a pound,  A very large amount of copper has  changed hands in the past few  weeks, and the buying demand is  still increasing. Producing interests  appear to be pretty well sold out and  a slight tendency to enlarge outputs  is developing.  . The war is consuming an enormous amount of copper, domestic  consumption is increasing, and the  neutral countries all over the world,  which were unable to make purchases immediately after the war  broke "6ut: because of inability to  finance them, are now coming into  the" market for raw copper and its  manufactured products. ��� Boston  Commercial. .   , ..���   ,      ,  ; Bombardier Wells, the champion  English heavyweight pug-ilist, and  Frank Moran, the American fighter,  have signed articles for a 20-round  bout in London, March 29,  Several teams are hard at it hauling the heavy timbers to the Cranbrook Homestake mine. ��� George  Cirr left for Chicago this week on  business in connection with the  mine. He expects to return to  Cranbrook again in about three  weeks' time. Capt. Rogers will  accompany him on his return trip.  Tlie captain is an experienced mining  man who willdevote the whole'of  his time lo developing the property.  ���- Prospector. '.;.  It is unofficially reported that the  Granby smelter in Grand Forks will  soon have all its furnaces in commission.  Jfrederic   Keffer,   of  Greenwood,  B.C., representing the-B. C. Copper  company has made a   favorable  .report on the   Highland Valley copper  mines near Ashcroft, with the result  that the claims have been bonded on  a two and a half year lease for $100-  000.      A   substantial   payment   has-  been paid   the  owners.     This  comprises the  Sanson-Chateway-Ward-  MeAbee   group.      A   lease  of  this  duration should give the.prospective  purchasers   ample   opportunity .to  test   the   mine   in  a very  thorough  manner.   We understand machinery  will be placed on  the ground  at an  early date.���Ashcroft Journal.  William Boyd returned from the  mine at Camborne on Monday with  R. D. Fraser, who has been working there all winter in the tunnel  which is being run into the mountain  to cut the ledge at a depth of 100ft.  The tunnel is now in 116 ft. For  the last 15 ft. iris in graphite, and  the ore body is expected to be cut  within 20 ft. In the. prospect tunnel  which was run a year ago at a higher  level, a good body of ore was encountered,   but   the  formation   was  more or less -broken up and no  graphite was encountered. The  ���striking of such a body of this  minerals a most favorable indication, as it is characteristic of all trie  silver-lead ore bodies of other districts in  Kootenay.���Nelson  News.  According to the .New York Min-  'mS Age, "a year ago the   report of  the B. C. Copper  company  properties on   Copper   Mountain" showed  5,000,000 tons of ore, an increase of  1,000,000 tons over the estimate of  the year previous.     This ore is said  to average 1.87 per cent copper and  60 cents per ton in gold and silver.  It is nearly twice as  rich  in coppen  as the original properties, and nearly  as rich In.gold-silver values.    What  is  equally   important,   the  ores   of  Copper Mountain   furnish   desirable  sulphur   for   fluxing   purposes,  and  will make an admi-able mixture with  the sulphur-lean old ores in the company's smelter at Greenwood.  There are also on Copper Mountain 4,000,000 tons of probable ore  running around 1.6 per cent copper,  as well as 4,000,000 tons of possible  ore not yet blocked out.  No. 1 drillhole, reported last week  to have passed through 150 feet of  thickness of 2}4 per cent ore, although it furnishes only a fragmentary drillhole record, seems destined to play an impoitant pare in  increasing the estimated tonnage as  well .as the grade of ore available at  Wins Pither-Leiser Gup  The local knights of the ancient  Scottish game have been hard at  work for the past few days deciding  the 1915 stewardship of the coveted  Pither-Leiser trophy. Three rinks  entered for the finals on Friday of  last week, viz., J. Strutzel's, W. X.  Perkins' and R. K. McCammon's  aggregations, the first-named "of  which was adjudged the winner  with an aggregate score of eleven  games out of thirteen. The actual  decision was made by McCammon  defeating Perkins, and Strutzel's  rink in turn defeating McCammon.  The following composed the victorious quartette: J. Strutzel, skip;  W. Biner, vice; J. E. Thompson,  second; and H. W. McLennan, lead.  The next competition that will  absorb attention is that for the Toronto Plate. This is a "knock-out"  contest, any rink losing two games  to be placed in cold storage. Thirteen rinks have entered.  Help the Hockey Club  ���  The. attention of the public is respectfully drawn to the dance on  Monday next, February 15, in the  Oddfellows hall, under the joint  auspices of the Phoeuix Hockey  and Spinsters' clubs. The Knight  and McKay orchestra have been  engaged for the occasion and the  spinsters have generously proferred  City League Contest  The city league gam* played en  Saturday last will probably rank aa  the "Mons" o�� local hockey circlee.  Few players left the arena in any.  thing like the  sprinting- form they  exhibited   when   they  stepped  iato  it, and as a consequence there will  probably be some slight  changes in  the personal of future line-ups.   The  chief casualty   was   E.   E.   Barnes  who  was  put  out  of action by a  rocketing puck,    necessitating  the  doctor's attention   and   no less than  four reefs in his face.    The next in  order was jos.   Strutzel,   who sua- .  tained something more than a love  tap on   the   roof of his think tank.  Both  sides put   forth  their  beat  efforts, and if there was any forcinj?  done at all it was probably on tbe  side of the Lower Town, but it was  nothing to swear to.     W. X. Per*  kins provided one of the sensations '  of the evening by clearing the length  of the ice and scoring* a goal all on  his own.     Barnes accounted for the  other two after receiving neat passes from Harry Cameron and Si Perkins.     The scoring  for the Granby  team was done by C.  Kennedy and  Tod  Boyce,   and   the' final   result  showed 3-2 in favor of Lower Town.  Both teams  expect  to  meet again  next week.  On  Thursday   of  this  week  the  Granby team  made  up for their de-  their help in the important matter of lfeat  on   Saturday   by vanquishing,  providing refreshments.

Engen, of the Phoenix Ski  club, who went over to Revelstoke  as the club's representative at the  carnival held there, wires A. O.  Johnson that he has captured the  first prize in the seven-mile race,  and in the ski-jumping, contest he  managed to secure second place.

This, if we remember cor-  erctly was confirmed by a Nelson  school ma'am, whose train was sidetracked for seventeen hours to allow  the warriors, the right-of-way.   Then  we had that Greenwood man's yarn,  that he learned from a letter sent  him by his cousin, who in turn got  the facts from his wife's sister, who  learned them from the milkman,  who had a cook whose nephew was  in the battle that cost the kaiser  seventeen ships and King George  the loss of the Iron Duke together  with Admiral Callaghar? and 900 of  his gallant crew. (Poor fellows.  May they rest in peace). Then  again we were told by a drummer,  who got the tip from his boss, that  the German cruiser Leipsic was lying in Esquimault harbor, all covered up with cloth like a circus band  wagon on the road, where she had  just been towed in by the Rainbow.  There could be no doubt about it for  did not the gentleman see it with  his own eyes. This, should be  enough for a few months, but apparently it isn't- The next is more  startling, and the reason we never  read about it is no doubt to be attributed to that confounded censor.  Our informant was another drummer���from Vancouver. "You don't  get much news up here, 1 see,"  said lie, missing the .cuspidor by  three feet. Here a bystander interfered with the spirited remark that  the Greenwood Ledge, Grand Forks  Sun and Gazette all had an extensive circulation in town, to say  nothing of the authoritative Pioneer.  "Yes," said he, "they're all very  well in a way. 1 find 'em very useful reading on the coast. But aftsr  the censor has finished with a despatch   it's    not   much  you   fellows  ..    i talking-   about.       They   even   know  about it  in'   the  penetentiary.     But  I'll enlighten  you.     You  remember  that this  Count Mackensen  was arrested on suspicion, but  on account  of his   poor   health   he was  allowed  to go   back   to   his   ranch   and  up his  cabbage  patch.  ae  dig  Well, just  before I left Vancouver be was re  arrested and the police excavated  his backyard, no doubt in the hope  of finding a -subway to Heligoland  or a concrete foundation for a 92-  centimetre battery. They found  neither, but concealed in a false  roof in the chicken house the cops  discovered a whole machine gun  section, tons of ammunition and sufficient rifles to equip fourteen regi-'  ments of German infantry." I tell  you," he concluded, shaking a warning finger at the astonished company, "these Germans are the cutest people on earth, and will require  some watching."  'Phone 56  P. O. Box 399  May Go to Egypt  Letters received in Phoenix this  week from members of the second  contingent, now training at Victoria, are full of the news of their  impending departure for the east.

Few people, except those in "the  higher official circles, will realize  the tremendous sacrifice that has  been made by General Botha, the  South African premier. Like some  others who have suffered, he too  makes a stand for a "scrap of  paper"���the treaty of peace which  brought to a close the regrettable  Boer war. The general's activity in  standing by his signature on that  document has cost him many friendships and mote than likely threatened his political career, but the name  that he has made for himself will be  honored wherever the British flag  , wjll fly, while the name of the traitor  General Beyers will be anathema  tized in the society of nil decent  men and women. It may even be  come in South Africa>the prototype  of Judas.   _���*   The Sheffield cutlery firms are  hard pressed just now in the matter  of turning out enough razors for  the use of John Bull's big army.  The manufacturers complain that so  many of their employees have joined  the fighting forces leaving them so  to speak in the lurch. Now comes  a doctor with a way out of the difficulty. He suggests that the soldiers all stop shaving and by this  means allow the cutlers to confine  their energies to the production of  swords and bayonets. This, however, will never suit Tommy Atkins,  who above all things delights to put  on a neat appearance in the company of the fair sex, a thing he can  never accomplish with his face converted into an animated cocoanut  doormat.  eral of South Australia, has resigned  his position because of the anti-  German feeling that exists throughout the whole of Australia. In view  of"'the records of. others of that  nationality holding what ought to  be honored positions in the public  service, it would not come amiss if  they all lost no time in following  the lead of the Australian minister.  What the British government thinks  about naturalized- Germans is to'-be  seen in the recent proclamation ordering them, and even their British-  born offspring, away from certain  areas on the east coast.  A despatch from Hamburg says  that all British colonials, in that  city, with the exception for the time  being of the Australians, have been  arrested and transported to Ruhle-  ben, where they are to be interned  iri the concentration camp along  with other British civilians. Perhaps when the kaiser receives the  full text of the Australian premier's  recent speech, the exception in favor of Australians will cease to be.

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. It 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 laws, are 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 FRUIT-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 ofgovernment 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. R. and'Great Northern companies, while within a few months the route to the  Pacific coast will be commercially curtailed by the opening of the new K. V.

The simple fact,  of course  is, that   it  is entirely the  affi'ir of the Allies who have fought,  and are fighting viz., Belgium^ Russia, France, Japan, Servia and Montenegro^���and America has no more  authority and will have, no more to  do with it than  Iceland or Albania.  America as  a neutral   nation has  .so punctiliously  preserved  her neutrality that she has  made no protest  whatsoever   against the   murder of  Belgium,   the mine-sowing in open  seas, aud the violation by Germany  of all the international laws and conventions to which .the United States  was a party.

He is credited with  having received the assurance from  the kaiser that if German troops  land in Ireland, the native institutions of that country will he respected.     Sir Roger was formerly a  British colonial governor.  ��� The story is now being lokl that  about .four years ago Prince Henry  of Prussia, brother of tlie kaiser,  spent a few days at Scarborough,  and that his suite included Prince  Minister, an admiral of the German  navy.

No person but a lunatic woiild  consider it a joke to circulate the  false report of a fatal' or serious  accident at the mine. Yet a cer.  tain local brainless bonehead thinks  it quite the thing to spread untrue  reports of casulties to Phoenix boys  with the. first contingent. Apart  from the question of causing relatives unnecessary pain and anxiety,  and God knows they'll have their  full share of it before the war is  over, there arises the question' 'of  of whether or not-such conduct does  not bring the ' liar- well within the  reach of the criminal statutes.    -��� l"  The Servants* Retort  .���' ���- ���  In reply to 'a leaflet "offering advice as to'how the domestic servants  can help Britain, the servants of the  fashionable west end of London  have got out a pamphlet of advice  to mistresses, suggesting that they  wear less expensive clothes, spend  less in bridge,.-teas and matineek;  quit pampering lapdogs; smoke le$s,  drink less expensive wines, and  eliminate foods out of season and  hothouse luxuries from the table. ���  No Hope For Stefannson  A Brabant, chief inspector for the  Hudson's Bay company, in the  Mackenzie river district, who has  just arrived in Winnipeg from the  far north, says it is most unlikely  that Stefansson, the arctic explorer,  is in camp near the delta of the  Mackenzie river, as has been reported.  Mr. Brabant claims he has re-  ceived the latest news from that  part of the world, and no news relating to the lost explorer has been  received by him. He says that if  Stefannson had reached the delta  of the Mackenzie he would have  certainly sent despatches to Fort  McPherson: on Peel river, which in  turn would have been sent out by  Hudson's Bay couriers. All reports  as to Stefannson's whereabouts, in  the opinion of the inspector, can be  regarded as nothing more than wild  guesses.   ���- ,  New Mine Inspector  The current issue of the British  Columbia Gazette announces .the  appointment of George O'Brien of  Fernie, to be inspector of coal  and metalliferous mines in B.C.  Arrangements have been made by  the postoffice department at Ottawa  whereby the ordinary rate of two  cents 'per ounce applicable to all  letters ' sent- from Canada to the  United Kingdom, will apply to letters addressed to British and Canadian troops on the continent.
