NEW YORK CAPITAL  FOR FIFE MINES CO.  General   Manager   Dempster  Returns From Trip  Charles Dempster, genera} manager  of the Fife Mines, Ltd., has returned  from a somewhat protracted trip to  New York, where he has been engaged  tor the past three months in completing  the financial arrangements of his company for the ensuing year.  Mr. Dempster reports that: his trip  has been entirely successful in every  respect, his associates having the deepest interest in their present enterprise,  and while, for the time being confining their attention to their mines at  Fife, it is more than probable the  sphere of operations in British Columbia will be largely'increased.  Conditions at Fife continue to be  entirely satisfactorily and now that the  compressor plant and necessary ma  chinery is on the ground, and will  shortly be in running order, operations there will be conducted on a  much larger scale, and the thorough  openine up of the property pushed, as  rapidly as possible.  Mr. Dempster further reports that  while personally successful, it is not  yet altogether an easy matter to enlist  the active interest of capitalists in mining enterprises, owing to there being  yet a certain unrest in the. financial  world. Even so, however, the fact  exists that British Columbia is most  favorably regarded, and the stocks of  many of the large corporations, especially in the Boundaiy country, are  very popular and actively dealt in both  on the "Curb" and in the stock exchanges.  It might interest many to know how  close a tab is kept of the doings .in  this camp by New York mining men,  and in many instances Mr. Dempster  has heard the brightest future is prophesied by men whose judgement carries very great weight.���Miner.

Recent development work at the  Wood burn property has uncovered the  best looking copper-' rock thus far  struck, and the management believe  they are now close to the main ledges.

GRAND FORKS AND  GREENWOOD HOCKEY  Both Teams' Won and Lost  Games  On &>e 4th inst. Greenwood hockey  team ran a special tiain carrying 150  supporters to Grand Forks, where they  were scheduled to play a league match  with the team ot the latter city. Grand  Forks had an eastern hockey star on  the line-up, and the visiting team objected to him playing as he lacked  residence qualifications. However, a  protest was filed and the game pro  ceeded, the home team winning by a  score of 5 goals to 1 in a lively contest,  Miller, the new Grand Forks recruit  showing up conspicuously.  On Monday evening of this week  the same teams played at Greenwood,  except that Miller was not on the visitors' line-up and McDonald was again  with Greenwood after a short illness.  The tables were not only turned but  Greenwood went one better and scored  6 times while Grand Forks negotiated  but a single goal.  Although Phoen'x is still at the top  of the percentage column of games  played for the Boundary hockey championship to date they have by no  means landed the cup yet. Following is the standing of the teams to  date:  Phoenix won 3  Greenwood "   3  Grand Forks      "   3  now laid  ohr the;  and  new  half a mile" of "steel is  trains  will   be  branch in March.      ��',<-.     ;/<"'  The Copeland Mining and Develop  ment company has secured a two-year  extension of its bond oii the LeRoi property near Rridesville. -jtis the intention  of the company to sink their present  65-foot shaft to 100 feet and crosscut  the lead, whi-h is claimed to be about  90 teet wide. Development will shortly be resumed and arrangements are  being made to instal a steam plant, in  eluding a hoist and pimp to facilitate  the woik. This is one of the most promising copper, gold and silver properties on the West Fork and the stock  in the company is held largely by  Phoenix residents.  lost 3  Presentation to Mrs. D. Mania  The. Ladies' Aid of the  church entertained at the home of  Mrs. A. F. Geddes on Monday evening in honor of Mrs. Dan Martin, who  will be leaving town shortly. During  the evening Mrs. Martin was presented  with a beautiful gold watch by Mrs.  Sturgeon, on behalf of the Ladies'  Aid, and Mrs. Geddes read an address  which expressed regret in, losing an old  and valued member of the organization. Mrs. Martin is one of the early  residents of phoenix, and has a host of  friends who will regret to learn of her  departure.  Flying Rocks flit Plate Olass  Flying rocks from a blast in the big  >>lory hole early Thursday morning  burrowed two holes in the roof of  Superintendent O.B. Smith's residence,  as well as damaging plate glass in  Black's jewelry store and R. Horrell's  tailor shop. No person was injured,  however. This is the first damage of  this nature locally for a number of  years.           Phoenix Miners "Union has ordered  a new curtain and new stage settings  for the local opera house.  ���OUTS AT GYMNASIUM  Four Snrtlaf Csjattsu ����� Satartav Nlfbl's  ���irtaM's Saiokcr  The   initial  smoker in  connection  with   the   Phoenix   fire; department's  gymnasium   took  place, on Saturday  night when the clubroorri was crowded  and others ..could not gain>,admittance.  The" feat ureof the evening wlf a^erYes  of boxing bouts in which the.best local  athletes took part, including the champion welterweight of British Columbia.  H:., Elkins   and   J.   McQuerrie   first  took the ring and gave a  heat exhibition of sparring.    R. Forshaw  and  J,  Turner were the heavyweights of the  evening, in  which   the- former's   "extensive reach," as well as science, indicates that Phoenix  probably  has  the  heavyweight champion of the province,  as  well  as   the  welterweight.    There  was something   doing   every  minute  when  E.  Shears  and   W.  Vanwagen  faced each other; both  gave a  game  demonstration of the fistic art to the  general delight of the  large audience.  Next came William Biner, the  welterweight   pride   of   the   province,   and  Thomas Oxley.    They gave a fast ex-:  hibition of the noble art in which the  science of the gentleman was much in  evidence.    Oxley, having been travel  ling for several days and being cut of  practice, was not in his usual form but  put up a gamey  scrap.    Under  the  conditions Riner was not called upon  to do his best,  but  nevertheless' gave  evidence of being a finished- exponent  of the game.  The evening concluded  with sandwiches and coffee and all present appeared to thoroughly enjoy the  even  ing's entertainment.  At a meeting of the fire department  on Thursday evening it was decided to  hold an athletic tournament in the  Phoenix opera house on Saturday  evening, Feb. 19. The committee  in charge promise a good program,  which will include several boxing contests, wrestlingand music. The proceeds  will be utilized in further equipping  the club's gymnasium.  PHOENIX HOCKEYISTS  PLAY AT ROSSLAND  Defeat Rossland 9 to 5 for B.  C. Championship  At the Rossland winter carnival on  Thursday evening Phoenix hockey  team defeated Rossland 9 goals to 5  for the British Columbia championship. Play was marked oy' the absence  of roughness which characterized previous games, in the day. During the  first half Phoenix put in four goals and  Rossland failed to locate the net 'fhe  second half was more even, each team  scoring 5 goals.  In the afternoon Greenwood defeated  Moyie 3 goals to 1 in the open challenge competition. The game was very  rough but the teams were evenly  matched. In intermediate hockey  Rossland won from Trail 10 lo o.  Thursday morning's events resulted  as follows: Seven-mile ski race, won  by E. Engin in 1 hour 9 minutes 40  seconds; second, Harvey Lynn, 1  hour 11 minutes; third, J. Johnson, 1  hour 1 a minutes.  Rossland, Feb. 9.���The weather  was cold, but fine today,' being very  iavorable for the sports which opened  the Rossland carnival in earnest.  The chief event of the morning was  the ski jumping for a new Canadian  record, the trophy being the Sullivan  Seagram shield. Of the four entries,  Harvey Lynn, a local lad, jumped 89  feet 2 inches; E, Engin, Grand Forks,  86 feet a inches; J. A. Johnson, Rossland, 60 feet; Ole Swanson, 57 feet 9  inches. This was nothing near the  record, so the trophy remains the  property of Torgal Noren, who last  jumped 101 feet.  The first game of the championship  hockey series was played in the afternoon between Rossland and Moyie;  and was won 7 goals to 6 by the latter  team. The score stood 3 to 1 in  favor of Rossland at the conclusion of  the first half. At the end of the second half each team had 6 goals to its  credit. On playing extra time, Rossland lost, as Moyie by a lucky shot  from Dimich scored again. It was a  strenuous game.  In the one mile skating championship of British Columbia, Davision of  Banff won easily by more than a lap  from P. Donohue of Rossland.  At night Nelson and Phoenix met  in the open challenge hockey competition: ;'i'he first part of the-game was  fairly even. Final score 9 to 5 in  favor of N.elson.

The conciliation board will have an  important question to decide, however.  The Union claims" that they have' the  right to insist on all employees at the  smelter and mines .of the British  Columbia Copper company being mem  bers of "the Western Federation of  Miners ; this right the company denies.

REPORT OF CITY  WATER ANALYSIS  Provincial Chemist Says It Is  Satisfactory  The water being pumped into the  city water mains from the Stemwinde1  shaft may be used for domestic purposes, according to C. J. Fagan, secre'  tary of the provincial board of health.  When the Phoenix water supply  company recently tapped the Stem-  winder mine water with the city mains  considerable suspicion as to the purity  of the water was aroused. Dr. Dickson, local medical health officer, immediately sent several quarts of the mine  water to Dr. Fagan to be analyzed, and  on Wednesday received a wire from  the provincial authority, stating that  there was absolutely no contaminating  substances in the water and that it  might be used for domestic purposes.  Dr. Dickson recommends, however,  that all water used for drinking purposes locally should be boiled,  $500 a side,  Greenwood Board of Trade are  pressing for construction of tbe Great  Northern railway from Denoro to Mid  way via Greenwood.

At the  home of Mrs. Smith the carpets were  removed and floors waxed, which together with excellent music furnished  by the Stephens-Sutherland-Ohman orchestra, left nothing lacking for a delightful dance. Over fifty guests were  present and whist was indulged in by  those who did not participate in dancing. At mid-evening a dainty luncheon  was served at the home of Mrs. Sutherland. The rooms were tastefully decorated in red and green, while green  boughs were entwined at the entrance  to the homes, around which Chinese  lanterns were hung.

Thus, although the captain resigned his post  tion   of finance minister  because  he  ' could not endorse the Canadian Nor  (hern scheme piesented by the prem.

Two shipments made on  January 30, 1909, ran $80 and $160  to the,ton. The last .shipment went  .as high as $320 to the ton.  Mining w��. Rallrotdlng  One of the' most irritating fictions,  and one that is contantly reiterated, re  fers to mining. It is popularly be  lieved that mining is essentially a dan  gerous calling. No amount ,of reason  ing convinces the lay mind that this is  not .the case.  ' A comparison of statistics may convince where reasoning fails.  More than eighteen thousand men  are employed in the collieries of Nova  Scotia. During 1908 there were 41  fatal accidents at these collieries. To  be exact, theie were 2.2 men killed for  each 1,000 employed. 3  Last year the railways of Canada  employed 19.443 trainmen Of these  113 were killed. That is, the fatality  rate was 5.8 per 1,000 men employed.  As this is considerable more than twice  the rate obtaining in Nova Scotian  collieries, the moral is obvious.'  Kow The British Havy Protootd Canadian*  Nearly forty years ago, before Ca  nadian capitalists1 had turned their attention to Spanish America, writes Watson Griffin in February Busy Man's  a Canadian by the name of McGee, a  naturalist of no mean attainments,  went from Montreal to Central America to make certain studies there, and  eventually settled on tlie west coast of  the Republic of Guatemala at the little  town of San Jose, the port of entry for  the capital city. He was shortly af.  terwards appointed British consular  agent at San Jose. The position was  not a lucrative one, but it had its  honor and gave him time to pursue his  studies One evening in the year 1871  Mr. McGee was entertaining a few  friends when a messenger ' came from  the commandant at the port, saying he  wished to see him.    McGee said :  "Kindly give my compliments to  the commandant and tell him it is impossible for me to go at present, but I  will be over to see him as early in the  evening as possible."  Shortly afterward the messenger returned and said : "The commandant  demands your immediate presence and  says to tell you if you do not at once  appear before him he will place you  under arrest."  McGee told the messenger that he  would see the commandant 111 a hotter  place than San Jose before he would  comply with such a threatening order,  and if the commandant wished to see  him immediailey he had better come  himself.  The   commandant  did  come,   but  with a body of  soldiers,   and carrying  McGee off to military prison,   ordered  that he sho.ild receive fifty  stripes  on  the naked back.    As  an  actual   fact |  McGee received   fifiy-one  stripes and  lay almost at death's door  for  several  months at the home  ef another  Canadian,    Mr.   Stanley   McNider,    of  Guatemala City.    He owed  his life to  the careful nursing of Mr.  and   Mrs.  McNider, who, like himself,   were   na  tives of Montreal.  Meantime, however, the British  Minister at Guatemala had been ac  tive. He at once cabled the. home  office and immediately came a reply  that a British cruiser then , lying ,off  Puntarenas, Costa Rica, had,been ordered to San Jose,1 and would be there  within forty-eight hours, and instruc  tructions were that if during the interim the Guatemalan Government had  not made official apology, not only to  the British Government, (but also to  McGee, and agreed to pay McGee five  hundred pounds sterling-for each and  every stripe received, a total of about  one hundred and twenty.-five thousand  dollars, San Jose should be taken.  Before the British warship arrived the  official apologies were given, immediate payment of the money offered and  the commandant reduced to the ranks  and imprisoned. McGee did not accept the money, he afterwards pointed  out that the facilities for shipping and  landing goods at San Jose were inadequate and that if he were given ex.  elusive dockage rights he could secure  capital   to . provide   proper < facilities.  The Government of Guatemala granted  him the exclusive rights asked for and  he disposed of them to the Campnn'a  de Agendas, which today is one of the  wealthiest corporations in Spanish-  America, while McGee himself is a  multi millionaire.

The New Edition of the  COPPER HANDBOOK  The Copper Handbook contains, in  thin new and /greatly enlarged edition,  in this new and greatly enlarged edition,  about 50 per cent, more matter than the  Bible���though not necessarily a better  book because of its gieater bulk.

The chapters with mine descriptions and  on statistic* have been carefully revised  and the bulk of the matter therein is  THE PROFIT-SHARING SCHEME  Under Conslderitloi by tho British Columbli  ColiRibls Copper Co,  (Victoria Colonist)  It is stated that the management of  the British Columbia Copper company  has at present under consideration a  plan which, if carried out successfully,  should go far to do away with any  probability of strikes on the part of its  miners. The idea is the adoption of a  profit-sharing scheme on the lines  which have already proved so.success-  ful in Great Britain, and which in one  or two other industries than mining,  are working very satisfactorily in one  or two European.. countries, and in a  few instances on this continent. Two  alternative plans are suggested, and  either or both of these, may be adopted.  The first is that the employees shall  have the right to subscribe at par for  a certain amount of the treasury stock.  The other plan is that a scale of wages  shall be put into force which shall be  adjustable to the price of copper.  The result of this idea, shb ild it be  adopted, is likely to  be  watched with  great  interest,   not  merely   by    mine  owners and mine operators, but by the  public at large, who are  the  principal  sufferers when master and servant.fail  to agree.   There is a growing tendency  among the better class of employers to  place  within  the reach   of the really  capable and efficient workman as  opportunity of profiting in   a   reasonable  proportion by the success of the business which his efforts have helped to  create, and it is a strong  proof of the  efficacy of such' schemes, and  of the  justice of the principle which   is their  motive power, that, wherever they.have  been    honestly    tried    and    capably  handled,   the   profit-sharing    systems  have resulted in   increased  efficiency  on the part of the  employee, and the  almost total disappearance of all   friction between him and  his  employer.  A man does not  go  to  work  to pull  down  a   business   in   which   his own  money is invested, and the success of  which means an increase in   his yearly  income.    The only draw back   to the  profit-sharing  is   that  it   will   force a  large number of skilled  agitators   into  the ranks of the unemployed.  PROVINCIAL.

WRITE NOW to the editor and publisher,  Stevens  There are so many so-called "re  medies" for piles that sufferers are often at a loss to know what to try. Piles  are caused by distension of the hemor-  hoid veins, and the tissue becomes  highly inflamed, dry and sore. Zam-  Buk cools and soothes the inflamed  tissue and the healing essences in Zam  Buk penetrate the diseased parts, giving ease quickly and eventually curing  the most obstinate cases of piles.  Mr. George Harris, of Virden, Man.,  says: "I suffered acutely from piles,  but I am glad to say Zam-Buk gave  me ease and brought about ultimate  cure." .-���-.���  Mrs. S. Cooke, 468 Pacific Ave.,  Winnipeg, says: "A month ago I was  cured by Zam-Buk of a bad attack of  bleeding piles, to which I had been  subject for a long time."  Mr. William Keuty, of Upper Nine  Mile River, Hants Co, N.S., says : "I  suffered terribly from piles. The pain  from these at times was almost unbearable. I tried various ointments, but  everything failed to do me the slightest  good. I was tired of trying various  remedies, when I heard of Zam-Buk,  but thought, as a last resource, I would  give this balm a trial. I procured a  supply and commenced with'the treatment In a very short time Zam-Buk  effected what all the other ointments  and medicines had failed to do���a  complete cure."  Wherever there is inflammation or  ulceration, there Zam-Buk should be  applied. It heals, ulcers, abscesses,  festering sores, cold cracks, scalp  sores, cuts, burns, scalds, bruises and  all irritated, inflamed or diseased conditions of the skin and subjacent tissue.

Nelson city council is demanding a  check of $564.53 from the local school  board to cover the amount obtained by  the board from the sale of the old  school, which amount the council  claims has been wrongfully appropri  ated.

Kamloops citizens, through their  civic government, are objecting to the  maintenance of a sanitarium for the  treatment of tuberculosis within the  city limits, and will petition the Provincial Health department to give the  city power to close it up. It is claimed  that since the Tranquille sanitarium  was established, Kamloops has been  the dumping ground for that institu  tion, and that the health of the citizens  was in danger from the influx of consumptives.  St. Valentine Day  A number of people are curious as  to,the history of St. Valentine Day,  which falls on the 14th inst. According to Hayden's Dictionary of Dates  Valentine is said to have been a  bishop, who suffered martyrdom under  Claudius II. at Rome; others say  under Aurelian, in 271. The origin  of the ancient custom of "choosing a  valentine" has frequently been the  subject of controversy. Time was  when the valentine was a thing of great  beauty in its way, a combination of  fringed satin and card with an elaborate  floral design and perhaps a dove or  'wo. It is to be feared, however, thai  ihe up-to-date maiden of today much  '>rt-fers it to take Ihe more practical  form of flowers, chocolates or a pair of  gloves, and the artistic souvenirs over  which our great grandmothers heaved  pensive sighs ��� re more or less things of  the past.. Many of the modern so-  c tiled "valentines" are a libel on the  old idea, and are merely useful in  keeping up a custom that associations  and sentiment have served to make  dear to us.  Creston will send a deputation to  the capital to press its claims for a  high school.  Disease of The Kidneys        '  Brought on By Catarrh^  Pe-ru-na Made a Well Man  of Me,  \ Cannot Speak Too Highly  of It.  Mr. Ooorge King, 453 St. Denis St-i  Montreal, Canada, a well-known bus  lnesa man of that olty, writes:  "Peruna cured me from what the  doctors were afraid would turn Into  Bright's disease, and after you have  gone through  tho  suffering  that I  have with catarrh of tlie bladder and >  kidney trouble, and have been cured (  you aro pretty apt to romember the )'  medicine that did the work. <  "Peruna la a blessing to a sick man,  Bight bottles made mo well and wore  worth more than a thousand dollars  to me.

INTERNAL CATARRH  ���UCHESTHE KIDNEY*.  CATARRH of the kidneys ia a very  much neglected disease.  It is not until the disease has a firm  hold upon the kidneys that tbe patient  begins to realize that there Is some derangement of these organs.  The slight backaches, the feelings of  lassitude, and other warning symptoms  of kidney disease are overlooked.  They are not serious enough to detain  the pationt from his regular work.  Even when he discovers that tiie kidneys are affected,  he does not recognize the dim-  eulty a* being  caused by catarrh.  ' Catarrh Is sometimes so -very gradual  la lta approach and lta earlier symptoms  eatue such slight discomfort that ft is  not noticed.  However, when It Is once firmly seated  In the kidneys It becomes a difficult dis-  MM to exterminate.  Indeed, catarrh of the kidneya is more  Mriona than catarrh affecting some of  the other organs of the body.  In the kidneys it is liable to terminate  In Bright's disease or diabetes, both ot  which arc recognized as very serious  ailments, if not fatal.  The tiling to be done, when catarrh of  the kidneys is discovered, is to take some  internal, systemic catarrh remedy, ono  lh��t reaches the very source of the cn-  MR.
