Granby stock has declined since  tlie bond issue plan was announced,  nowithstanding the dividend- declaration or $1.50 a share. The  weakness of the stock, however, is  in keeping with the depressed condition of copper shares in general.  President   Nichols/says:       "We  can put ourselves into a strong po.si-  tion   at   once by    the   use of. the  proposed    issue    of    bonds,      thus  having  at;*all times   resources   <it  hand with'Which to continue a policy of expansion so far as conservative    judgment    may   dictate   and  resume   payment   of dividends   immediately���all without  encroaching  upon our working capital,  which for  that the ' home ^buhch had gone  down to defeat"byAn'e. score of 9-4.  ���Various reasons' are advanced to  account for the result, many of them  being, .'of* "a highlyifanciful nature  and 'utterly absurd;' The truth of  the matter,' however, is distinctly  traceable solely :to an overplus of  confidence, 'and, while the,episode  is a matter for regret, the incident  will serve an excellent warning  when a similar situation confronts  our local puck chasers.

Local Ski-jumping News  Among the events  left over from  the recent  ski-jumping  tournament  was one reserved for the youngsters,  and on Sunday, the latter with their  juvenile  supporters   assembled   on  a specially-prepared course near the  C.P.R. depot to decide the honors.  The   platform' was   of course considerably  lower than   the one used  by the  seniors,   but in   the light of  what   actually   happened,   it   might  with safety   have been  made a cou  both pi operties should   not~ be   less j p|e of feet higher,  than the issue of bonds   now   pro  perked  -Every since Granby   was orga'niz-  . - ed   the   management's v policy   has  been one of expansion.

J.  Carson, was won by Oscar Vick,  a diminutive jumper of 11 years,of  age, who came down the slope at  great speed and accomplished the  surprising jump of 54ft. John  Rosene (15 years of age) was a  close second with 51 feet to his  credit, both of them landing with  astonishing ease.  After the above events had been  decided, the seniors made tracks for  their old course on Pike's peak,  which was in the finest of shape  foi big jumping. E. Engen exceeded the 95 feet mark and Paul Ny-  sater" came nearest to him with  a leap of 85 feet. Among the others  who creditably acquitted themselves,  were" H.- -Hansons/Ed. "NySater/G^  Carlson, K. Bakke  and   P. Rostad.  According to schedule the Fernie  hockey team, one of the crack organizations of the interior, appeared on the local ice sheet on  Tuesday and entered into a friendly  game with the local experts. There  was a crowded attendance of tbe  public who displayed the keenest interest in . the game and openly expressed their satisfaction at the opportunity afforded of guaging the  true merits of their favorites when  in operation with other than their  usual opponents of the Boundary  league. While by no means a fast  game, it easily counts among the  cleanest seen in the Boundary,  while the combination team work  as well as the play of the individual  repeatedly excited the approbation  of a critical though friendly audience. Fernie appeared to be suffering from over exertion, a condition  not to. be wondered at when it is  remembered that they have recently  engaged in the events at tbe Rossland Carnival and the night previously took part iu a game with  Grand Forks. Immediately following the game the visitors were entertained at supper in the Queen's  hotel by the local management, and  expressed their thanks for the  courtesies extended to them during  their short stay in the'"city.  The puck  was   faced   off  at'8.50  Mitchell turned nicely, a later one  grazing the goal post. PJay immediately shifted to the other end  where Bassett tried another long  shot  Phoenix Defeats Grand Forks  ^Between 150 and 160 supporters  of the Phoenix septette boarded the  C.P.R. special on Friday and helped  to swell the hundreds who crowded  the Grand Forks rink on the occasion of the big' match between  the puck chasers of that town and  this burg. The Forks line-up was  reinforced by a couple of star performers,' Messrs. Rochon of Port  Arthur and Ross of Swift Current,  both of whom were prominent in  the games   of the recent Rossland  which   met   the  same   fate'as  that of other similar essays by otherl carniva'-    Although the proceeding  was   distinctly  a   contravention   of  the    league   by-laws,   the   Phoenix  players,   this  was  closely followed  by a   pass   to   Neil   who    promptly  seized   the- opportunity  and scored  for  his  team.      Warm  work  was  then seen for  some little  time and  on a neat pass from Thrasher or|ence as far as l"e home bunch were  Dunlop to McQuinn, the Fernie | concerned  score was increased to two. Davidson and Sayers now took' an unusually active part and after some  active work together the former  took the last pass and planted the  rubber in the Crow net. This  brought the total score up to 3-2 in  Mitchell aroused the enthusiasm of  the Phoenix contingent. Four minutes from the call of time found the  visitors buzzing around the Grand  Forks net, the result of some fine  passing being a very successful shot  by Moore which virtually ended one  of the most scientifically-contested  games pulled off in the province this  season. Score: Phoenix, 3, Grand "  Forks, 1:  Fraternal Society Hockey Game  A goodly crowd assembled at the  rink on Saturday night to witness  the titanic contest between the  members   of the local  Scandinavian  Moore, who was in splendid form,  recorded the "first goal for the  home colors after ten minutes' of  the fastest kind of hockey, although  to Ross belongs the honor of scoring the first of the game, a proceeding in which he was assisted by  favor of  Phoenix.      The Vest of thel Lvnne and McGregor who knocked  management refrained from protest,   brotherhood   and    the   brethren   of  and as matters turned out,  the sub-  the  Phoenix   lodge  of Knights   o  stitution made no appreciable differ-   Pythias.     The  men from  the north  looked spic   and span   in   their new  hockey togs, while the K.P.'s made  period was marked by some long  passing and sensational runs by  Neil, Davidson and Bassett of the  home team, and a couple by Dunlop "and Wallace of the visiting  bunch. Ten minutes play saw  Davidson in possession of the puck  and making tracks for the Crow's  nest, but a severe body check by  trie     visitors'    point    floored    him  Mitchell off his pins. No more  scoring marked the first period and  the sound of the gong found either  side as fresh as paint with one  scalp apiece.  The second period was even more  closely contested than the former,  both sides indulging in the most  systematic combination and   stick-  a good appearance in borrowed  plumes, and showed up in the  colors   of the   senior hockey team*:���~  The proceedings caused endless  amusement for the spectators and  the players were subjected to a running fire of pointed chaff and humorous banter. Herb. Neil was the  referee and Dune. McDonald of  Greenwood was judge of play.  Severe penalties were meted out to  those guilty of any infraction of the  rules and throughout the game the  two were busy escorting delinquents  to" the barrier.

Neil and Moore. The rubber remained on the Fernie end for about  three minutes, when a break by  Wallace relieved the tension; the  latter was however threatened by  Davidson and consequently was  obliged to shoot an ineffective shot  at rather ' long range. Again some  splendid hockey was witnessed on  centre ice, both sides being seemingly unable to keep possession for  any appreciable length of time.  The close tangle was eventually  straightened out by Moore, who  was* closely watched by Milne and  Wallace, and who transported:the  puck straight across where it was  collared by the watchful Neil, from  whom it was in turn taken by Wallace. Straight through all,opposition the latter sped with it and tried  an ' ineffectual shot at the Orange  and Black net. This was followed  by a lively fusilade at the home defence, but Mitchell rose to the occasion and after executing some  wonderful stunts, the puck fell into  the hands of Basset and Neil, who,  acting in combination took it at a  great clip to the other end. Its  stay at the Fernie end was remark-  ble short, and again the spectators  were treated to another fine exhibition of hockey dombination and  elaborate checking in \the centre of  the arena. Fourteen minutos play  saw neither side able to score, but  in a close scrimmage on the visitors'  ice, just on fifteen minutes, Neil  secured possesion, passed to Moore  and the first goal of the game was  registered. A minute or two later  the Crow boys equalized.  Fernie reopened the ball by a  swift descent on the home net and  let   loose  a  couple   of shots which  in the end it fell into the possesion  of Davidson who again-passed to j  Moore and a goal resulted immediately before the sound of the gong.  The final part of the game started  with a visit by Phoenix to the  Fernie ice where the net was subjected to a severe battering. From  now. on the strain began to tell on  the Crow boys, and Bassett, Neil,  Davidson and Moore were constantly engaged in forcing matters, when  Thrasher the swift left wing of the  visiting bunch grabbed the puck,  and almosttook it the length of the  ice, but was unable to pass Neil  and Davidson, the former of whom  slipped the puck to Basset who sent  it straight tor the net and scored  the sixth goal for the home team.  Wallace a little later exhibited his  fine points on stickwork and required some close watching, a goal  going to his credit after ten minutes  of play. T, Thrasher afterwards sent  in a iorig -swift one that found the  centre of Mitchell's waistcoat and  immediately afterwards a similar  shot fired the other way smote the  panting' bosom of Caddon. Herb  Neil now attempted to pack the  Crow coverpoint on his back and  was ordered to the fence for a season, but at the expiration of his  sentence arid finding the rubber conveniently, awaiting him at the door  of the timekeepers' boxj he at once  took possession and a second later  passed to Sayers who returned it  immediately and in time for Herb  to record the seventh goal for the  locals. Less than a minute from  time Bassett sent the home score  up another notch, making the final  score 8-3 in favor of the home club.  The city band, under the direction  of Geo. Cain, rendered selections.  DID YOU EVER NOTICE how  much better you feel, how much  more confidence you have in yourself when you're well dressed ?  Great Boosters, Our Good Clothes Are!

C. Forests  Last October the forestry   branch  of the  department   of  the' interior  called a meeting of the   fire-rangers  of the   Revelstoke district   of   the  railway belt to discuss more efficient  forest   fire  protection.       This   conference decided  that   there   can   be  no certain hope of conserving forest  resources till  the slash,   left  after-  logging operations, is  disposed  of.  The experience of rangers shows  that once ar fire  gets   a   start   in  slash an army of men   cannot chelk  it.    A   fire  at  Golden   B.   C.,  last  June quoted as  an  example.,   This  fire started in slash   where   logging  operations we're "being   carried   on  Fanned by a  strong   wind,   it   ob  tained such headway   that  a   large  force   of   men'' employed     by   the  lumber company,   who   were   right  on the ground, had to. flee for   their  lives. * This fire raged"up andj&own  the Columbia - river  for   miles,   destroying many million feet of timber,  and burning-dp logging camps  and  a logging railway.'     A   large   force  of fire  fighters   proved   helpless   to  stop its ravages. ,.   -  The conference asserted that this  slash ��� problem is ~ becoming more  insistent and dangerous every year,  as the quantity of slash is increased  by lumbering operations. Much  satisfaction was expressed by the  conference at a statement made by  the forest inspector, acting as chairman of the meeting, that the forestry  branch was to institute experiments  as soon as possible to determine  the" "safest and most economical  method'-of disposing of logging  slash.

The experiment of the Laurier  government in the naval question  has been a costly one, especially as  the Niobe stationed on the Atlantic  coast, has been a great part of the  time in dry dock.  The total amount up to date  spent on the naval service, estimating what will be spent this year, I  is $4,273,473. Save for the capture  of a few foreign fishing craft in  British Columbia waters, that were  fishing within the three mile limit,  Canada has received little or no  return from the expenditure.  In the present naval debate Sir  Wilfrid Laurier loudly proclaimed  that Canadians should man their  own ships contribnted to England  and tried to score aganist the government on that account. But the  number of Canadians who have  enlisted on the Niobe and Rainbow  siuce the passing of the act contrasts somewhat sharply with lthe  Laurier idea of ease, in recruiting  young Canadians for- the naval  service., ,������'.-. '   ���"  ' A representative from the Maritime proyincesin.the person of the  Hon. William Pugsley stated that  many thousands of Canadians were  the   U.S.    navy   because  No Enthusiasm For Oliver  That   the   Liberals    of   western  Canada are not prepared to support  a    fight   against    the   government  proposal of sending three  Canadian  Dreadnoughts to take their place in  the British navy, is evident from an  experience      which      befell      Hon.  Frank   Oliver    and    Dr.     Michael  Clarke at  a  meeting1 in   Lacombe,  Alberta.    The Laconbe   "Globe"   a  paper which has given  the    Liberal  party enthusiastic support   in  times  past, says of (his meeting:���     '  "Never in the history of Lacombe  was a speaker  up  aganist  a   more  unresponsive audience.     'While the  late minister   of   the   interior   was  making his address the crowd listened    patiently,    but   failed    to   give  expression to any feelings they may  have   had   on   the   subject,    every  point made   by  the   old   war-horse  falling flat.    A   handclap   now   and  then from one or two in the audience  was the   extent   of   the   applause.  Hon.   Mr.   Oliver  must    have  left  Lacombe with the  feeling  that  Alberta, in common  with  other* parts  of the- Dominion, does not want this  great question   made   a   matter   of  partisan politics.      Dr.   Clarke took  his cue from the reception of Hon.  Mr. Oliver, and steered clear of the  naval question till near  the close of  his address.     He received  a   better  hearing than Mr.   Oliver,    and   left  the crowd in good humor   with   liis  jokes and pointed remarks about the  Conservatives."

The  total up to December 15th, has  been 402 officers and men. During  the same period 64 English officers  and 626 men have been employed  on the ships.  The naval service department also  shows that the number of men  qualifying for service as seamen  during the same period up to January 12 was 2S, and made up as  follows: boys 26, ordinary seamdn  22, able seamen 29, and leading  seamen 1. These men have completed their service in the training  ships and are eligible for draft to  a sea-going ship for advanced training in seamanship, gunnery and  torpedo.  In stili more striking contrasts to  the statements made by Mr. Pugsley that many thousands of Canadians are serving in the United  States navy, are the figures prepared  by the naval service department of  Washington. During the past five  years two hundred and thirty-four  persons actually residing in Canada  have entered "or re-enlisted in the  United States navy.  Taking this total by years it  shows that in 1908 there were 26  residing in Canada who joined the  United States navy, in 1909 there  were 75, in 1910 there were 38, in  1911 there were 50, and 1912 there  were 44. Thus the thousands of  Mr. Pugsley melt into a paltry two  hundred and thirty-four persons who  are actually resident. in Canada:  When these figures are added to  the 402 officers and men in the  Canadian navy  the   grand   total   of  being    the     glib     vaporing     of   a  too imaginative agent assisted by a  number   of  photos depicting buildings that easily would do credit to  the   older    established   sections   of  Chicago.     We are in  receipt of information that impels  us to utter a  word of warning  and earnestly advise   the   prospective   purchaser   of  real estate  on either   the  Canadian  or American portions of the Pacific  slope,   to   visit   the   property    and  thoroughly investigate its bona fides  before closing the deal.

Arsenault, a justice of the  peace, and station master at Wellington,, on the Prince Edward Island Railway, has had a wonderful proof of the  healing power of Zam-Buk.   He says:  "Four years ago I had an accident. 1  slipped in the station and fell on a  freight truck, sustaining a bad cut on  the front of' my leg. I thought this  would heal, but instead of doing so it  developed into a bad ulcer and later into a form of eczema which spread very  rapidly and- also started on the other  leg. Both legs became so swollen and  sore that I could only go about my work  by having them bandaged. My doctor  said I must stop work and lay up.  -'After six months of this trouble 1  consulted another doctor, but with no  better result. 1 tried all the salves,  liniments and lotions I heard of, but  instead of getting better I got worse.  "This was my condition when I got  my first box of Zam-Buk. Greatly to  my delight that first box gave me relief. I continued to apply it to the  sores, and day by day they got better.  I could see that at last I had got hold of  something which would cure me, and in  the end it did.  It is now over a year since Zam-Buk  worked a cure in my case, and there  has been no return of the eczema or any  trace of it."  Such is the nature of the great cures  which Zam-Buk is daily effecting. Purely herbal in composition, this great  balm is a sure cure for all skin diseases,  cold sores, chapped hands, frost bite,  ulcers, blood poisoning, varicose sores,  piles, scalp sores, ringworm, inflamed  patches, cuts, burns and bruises.

The firing line  compobed of Phoenix school boys, were  defeated by the young Turks of Greenwood to the tune of 8 to 2. The  superiority of weight and accuracy of  fire of tho young Turks swept all  before them in spite of tlie most heroic  efforts of the Phoenix hoys.  The rear guard, composed of the  PJioenix I.O.O.F. hockey team gave  the Greenwood I.O.O.F. a most stubborn contest. The teams were very  evenly matched and the large crowd  of spectators were ununiinous in expressing their suprise at seeing such  an excellent brand of hockey, several  remarking that the game compared  very favorably with some' of the  senior game of present season. Greenwood playing a policeman on tho  defence line had an advantage as any  .Phoenix player essaying to score  would find his progress arrested before  he came within striking distance of  the Greenwood goul.
