Smith, Jr., general superintendent for the Granby Consolidated  arrived in town this week from Vancouver, where he has now taken up  his residence.     He has  recently returned from one of his visits  to  the  Granby's   Hidden   Creek   mine,   on  Observatory   Inlet.    Questioned as  to operations   there, he   stated that  there was very little new information  to    impart.      The   company   have  about 70 men employed on development   work,   outside   developments  having'   been    suspended    for    the  winter, which lie said  has  not been  nearly as sevete as at  Phoenix, the  thermometer only   registering near  zero once.    The  electric  light and  power   installation   has   been   completed,   the   company   having   bent  every energy in that direction.  They  have an   excellent  service of communication now, three steam boats,  the   Camostin, Badso  and   Venture  calling  regularly.     He   also   stated  that everything up   there   was , running to his   entire  satisfaction,  and  in the spring  active   and   extensive  work would be carried on. The  post office address for the Hidden  Creek mines is Anyox, British Columbia, 'E. H. Hyde, recently of  Phoenix, has been appointed postmaster.  The ore crusher, at No. 3   outlet,  which   was  irreparably damaged a  few weeks ago, necessitating the substitution  of another, which was installed with   commendable despatch  this week, was  immediately placed  in commission  and gave  the greatest  of satisfaction.    The   company  were so fortunate as   to secure one  at Boundary Falls, thus doing away  with the long wait  if one had to be  ordered from   the east.    The work  in connection with its installation is  deserving of recognition, both night  and day shifts.were employed, while  the time taken scarcely exceeded a  week.       The    ore   shipments    are  steadily   increasing and  indications  point   to   a   determination    on   the  part of the company.to reap a share  of- the   now   rapidly   rising   copper  market.

PHOENIX DEMANDS  A NEW HIGHWAY  City Council Takes Action���Resolution Passed by Phoenix  Conservatives.  The Phoenix city council, at  their meeting on Wednesday last,  discussed the matter of a new road  to take the place of .the dangerous  highway which connects this town  and Grand Fprks. A committee  was appointed, consisting of the  mayor, D. J. Matheson, Alderman  Jas. Marshall and H. Hartley, to  draft a petition to be forwarded to  the Minister of Works and Ernest  Miller, M.P.P.  The' executive committee of the  Phoenix Conservative association at  a meeting on Wednesday evening,  took action in the matter of calling  the provincial government's attention to the pressing need for a road  on grade between Phoenix and  Grand Forks. A resolution to this  effect was unanimously carried and  the sec, R. McCammon, was instructed to communicate with Ernest Miller, the member for this district, drawing his attention to the  matter.

GREENWOOD HOCKEY  TEAM OUTCLASSED  Scientific Play of Phoenix Team  Too Much for Visitors-  Score 20 to 1.  W. A. PICKARD    *�� box t26  SELLING AGENT FOR THIS DISTRICT  The crack team of Greenwood received another setback on Friday of  last week   at the   bands of the local  hockey   specialists.       Ten   minutes  from the start Fife and Stanway had  both   located   the   Greenwood    net.  The   visitors   showed   lots   of dash,  but showed  absolutely no combination whatever  and  were' frequently  sprawling   all over   the  ice.     With  very few exceptions the visitors' defence was poorly supported   and his  saves were mostly of the lucky soit.  For some   time   there   was   a lively  chase from one defence to the other,  with little or no danger on the part  of the   Phoenix goal.     Many   times  throughout the  match the game resolved itself into a joke, the visitors  gazing    in    open-mouthed   wonderment   at   the  lightning   movements  and   clever checking   of the   locals.  So  hopeless   were  the  visitors that  Lang the Phoenix  goal took a hand  and even made  an effort to  score a  goal.     Towards the close the Greenwood   bunch   contrived   to   make  a  rather long   stay around   the home  defence,   but. Lang was in evidence  and all efforts to score in that quarter proved  futile.     It  can  be truthfully   said     that     the    Greenwood  players were   quite   unable to  keep  possession    of   the    puck    for   any  length of time.    The   final   reckoning   showed   the   colossal   score   ol  20  to  1 in   favor  of Phoenix.     Ab.  McQueen refereed   the game, which  for all   its one-sided   character, was  quite   unmarked   by   ill    nature   or  dirty play on either side.

The ore is chalcopyrite,  easily smelted, and carries gold,  copper and iron.  The Canadian Consolidated Cos  smelter at Trail received, during  December, 22,622 tons of ore and  smelted 24,512 tons. The value of  the month's production was $313,-  320, of which 38 per cent, was  gold, and the value of six months'  production was $2,477,112, of which  5S per cent was gold.  The imperial trade correspondent at Victoria reports that considerable deposits of aluminite,  tripoli, graphite and talc have been  discovered on the west coast of  Vancouver Island. The tripoli deposit is stated to cover 150 acres,  and the deposit of aluminite said  to be of rare quality, 200 acres.

Carnival Hockey Matches  In the match for the semi-final of  the I?. C. Championship played between Cranbrook and Rossland, the  former came off victorious with a  score of 3 to 2 in their favor. On  Thursday evening Greenwood defeated Phoenix in the semi-final of  the. 1?. C. Championship, after a  stubborn contest, having to play  overtime to decide the game, the result being 5 to 4 in favor of Greenwood. Today the final tie for the  B.C. Championship will be played  off, Cranbrook and Greenwood contesting for the honor.  The semi-final for the International between Phoenix and Rossland  resulted in favor of Phoenix with a  score of 10 to 5 to their credit,  while Greenwood beat Cranbrook in  the same series with a score of 5 to 3.  B. C. Copper Treatment  The 13. C. Columbia company's  smelter treated 9,513 tons of ore  this week, as follows: Mother Lode,  8,482; Rawhide, ...; Wellington,  541; Athelstan, 79; Emma, 177;  others, 234.  The B. C. Copper Co.'s Rawhide  property in Phoenix resumed operations on Monday last, after a shut  down of about ten weeks, caused by  the company's reluctance to enter  into further contracts for supplies of  Pennsylvania coke, which they had  used throughout the long drawn out  coal strike in the western Canadian  coal regions. Notwithstanding  the fact that the coal strike has been  settled for some weeks, the B.C.  company have been quite unable to  secure sufficient coke to keep all  their furnaces going in Greenwood.  However, a good supply is now on  hand which will enable the company to operate its full battery and  treat the Rawhide product. It has  been said that the coal mines at  Coleman, Alberta, from which the  B.C. company procures its coke,  have been supplying the local demand in that district, possibly finding it more remunerative than turning it into coke.  The production o( the British  Columbia Copper company for the  fiscal year ended November 30, was  9,969,926 pounds of copper, 130,441  ounces of silver and 30,742 ounces  of gold, compared with 7,143,456  pounds of copper, S4.180 ounces of  silver and 24,962 ounces of gold in  the previous year.

Furniture Dealer  and Undertaker  QUEEN'S HOTEL  '     ,   R. V; CHISHOJLM, _Pjfbp.  <* *"1*S5X-NNY40E^'NE; Manager,  Saturday, Feb. 10, 1912  The Widow's Portion in B.C.  A revision of the law affecting the  case of a man d)ing intestate is  urgently needed in Biitish Columbia. In no other portion ot the  British Empire does such a disgraceful anomaly exist as the one in this  pro\ incc which deprives the widow  of her rightful share in her deceased  husband's estate. Theie may have  been v some cause for the passage  of such legislation in the early days  of the province's histoiy ; we ate  informed that there was, manj people, however, have thought othei-  wise, and are, even now u ondeiing  why the intelligent and ciiltmed  women ol British Columbia should  still be suffeiing for the sins of a lot  of pioneer wastrels of years ago.  During the last few years many  cases have been befoie the com is of  this piovince, some of them being  of a most distressing'nature, for as  the law stands at piesent, it matteis  little if the wife has helped the lius-'  hand to accumulate the estate, it  he dies without making a will the  widow is entitled to only a half  interest, his father having a prior  claim to ihe othei half. If there aie  children, the widow's share is reduced to a third and only a life interest in that, the children taking  all at her death.  This bright piece   of colonial law-  from their dislike for work, these  choice areas are lying idle, not odI}'  stimulating,, the envy of the surrounding settlers, but arousing  their positive dislike, for ih "many  places they area great hindrance to  advancement, '^the difficulty is felt  all through the outlying settlements  of the province,* as in the Cariboo  and Chilcotin.  Every worthy person feels  strongly that those to whom the  whole country once belonged should  now be welcome to the best of it.  It is realized that it is to a great  extent the white man's fault if the  Indians are still shiftless dependents  on the chase and other casual roving pursuits. ' Still no one can. contemplate with satisfaction the best  land in sections where good land is  at a veiy high premium blighted by  disuse. The Okanagan valley, for  instance, renowned, as the happy  valley of Rasselas, for its charms  and fruitfulness, consists of a very  few square miles of irrigable, arable  land scattered in small blocks along  either side of the lake. By intensive  larming the residents have made  the valley a profitable garden. They  aie separated by mountains from  the rest of the province, so that  their social pleasures and conveniences depend on. the number of  settlers the) can get into the valley.  Theii work has raised the value of  the land in the vallcj from one to  three hundred dollars an acre.  Under these circumstances it is ng-  aggravating to have witheld from  settlement some hundreds of the  most available areas of land in the  valley by a score of Indians who do  nothing with it.���Montreal Weekly  Witness.  A CheerfulProspect  A gloomy prophecy as to the pro-  probability of conflicts in the Pacific ocean, was. redentjy made by  T. W. M. Maguire',' the" lecturer on  military strategy, at a meeting of  the Royal Colonial Institue. Mr.  Maguire described the Pacific as the  strategic .centre of,mankind, and  warned both the United State's and  Great x Britain that nothing could  give them security, but a race of  military men, as with nations like  Germany and Japan, it was a word  and a "blow. The yellow races, he  said were {join;* to demand equality  of treatment. Japan was at present  Great Britain's .illy, but that would  only last as loin' as the British  alliance was strong. Great Britain's  territory, in the Pacific ocean, he  ���considered, was by no means safe,  and the Japanese mi^ht attack and  defeat the Americans any day.  HP!

The matter  should be taken up by some of the  excellent women's organizations of  the country and the perilous position  of at least nine tenths of our women  folk brought to the attention of the  Provincial Legislature.  ' ^    /  The Indian Title  Nine   Indian   chiefs   from    B. C.  recently waited on Premier Borden,  seeking assurance  that  their possession of their reserves would never  be questioned except in  the "white  man's   courtsi'V There  is   little   or  no relation   between  these  ' Indian  chiefs' and the  mental   picture that  the words   conjure  as* derived from  early colonial ��� history  and the writings   of Cooper;   they,are not  the  hereditary heads   of nomadic bands  who live .in tepees or bark wigwams,  ever ready to fight.    Living in filthy  unventilated   log  shacks,   they  are  but the. appointees of the Canadian  government for the preservation of  order   on   the1   r.incher'ees.      Their  rarichere.es,-' as    the   allotments   of  land that havebeen parcelled out to  the different   groups of-Indians'are  called, are the matter at issue.  These pieces of land, selected in  the early days of the province and  surveyed off as reserved wherever a  half dozen of Indians claimed a  right, are naturally the choice parts  of the whole country. The old  beaver dams that are now large  meadows, the best flats along the  banks of the rivers, the deltas at  the junction of the streams fell to  their lot. These lands are owned  communistically as is essential with  Indians, for they have no strong  enough desire for individual ownership to maintain possession.  Whether  on   this  account,  or just  water, you can always count on the  Rainbow."  . The Minister of the Interior, Hon.  Robert Rogers, has decided that  the government will this spring advance to destitute homesteaders on  unpatented lands, supplies of seed  grain, particularly wheat and oats,  for the coming season, a lien being  taken upon the homestead for the  value of the grain advanced.

It is particularly disagreeable to a lady who Is compelled, to  make the journey dally. As a protection from the obnoxious atmosphere  she7 is accustomed to carry'a bottle of  lavender salts* As the train approached the factory she produced the phial  as usual, unstopped It und applied it  to her nostrils.
