The matter,of issuing  these bonds, as well as other details  of refinancing* the company, will  be  submitted to stockholders in a  few  days, and a special meeting will be  called    when   the   proposed   plans  doubtless wil! be ratified."  While the proposed plans have  not yet been given out, it is learned  that the British Columbia Copper  company,  PHOENIX DEFEATED  BUT NOT CONQUERED  Local Team Have Yet a Chance  for Holding Silverware.

",;.vOVj  conditions imposed are not fair and  equitable, but such that the company will be enabled to consummate  the plans for expansion and development it has had under consideration  for years.  VAs for its Motherlo'de and'other  xMflM^x  ���**>  properties British Columbia: Copper  has been  operating  at' a profit for  many    years," .says,   the  -report.  "These  have  been  steady   income  producers,   but,  unfortunately,   the  earnings   have   been dissipated the  last two years in   acquiring and ex-  plo'ring a number of new properties  in Washington and  British  Columbia.   In the last 18 months the.com-  pany has spent approximately $550,-  000 in  purchasing and   developing  new-holdings.   In the last two years  the net   earnings   have been not to  exceed $700,000* and it^can he seen  readily that  this  campaign   of expansion entailed a heavier financial  burden    than    the   company- could  carry   conveniently, in   view   of  its  limited resources, and the result was  the depreciation   of its   slock   from  $8 a share a few years ago to a low  level of $2.      .    ��� ~  a  for the  new  stock. . Two  hundred  thousand shares of Ihe   new   stock."  of Ihe  value of $1,000,000, will be  set aside in the treasury as a reserve  against conversion of the $1,000,000  of 6 per cent   convertible   bonds   to  be issued. -  It  is   inferred  that the  -remaining   200,000  shares   of.the  new stock, left in the  treasury, wilr"  be used or  sold   for  company purposes in   acquiring, developing and  equipping   new   properties.'" As   a  matter of fact, the present outstanding    shares   of    British . Columbia  Copper total   only  591,709, instead  of the   authorized   600,000, so  that  under the scheme of reorganization  there will   remain "treasury   stock"  amounting to 208,291 shares of the  par  value   of $5   each, "instead  of  200,000 shares.  NEW PROPERTIES.  The principal new properties to  be taken over by the British Columbia Copper company are the  Princess group, of between 40 and  50 claims, located on the flanks ,of  Copper mountain, in the Voight  (Continued on Page 4)  score of 2-0, and  at "Grand  Forks  Wednesday  they  again   lost   in  a  score   of  4-1.      Phoenix has  two  postponed games to play, both with  Grand   Forks.      The   first   will  be  played at home next Monday night,,  and Ihe next"at Grand Forks  Wednesday  night.      Grand   Forks  and  Greenwood   will   play  a  postponed  game at Greenwood   Friday  night,  the two  latter  teams also  have  a  protested game to play,   at  a  date  yet to be fixed.  As the league now stands Grand  Forks is slightly in the lead, but  Phoenix still has a fighting chance  of winning out. ,  The Greenwood team has picked  up wonderfully of late, and today  it is probably the best in the Boundary league. The Greenwood boys  are a good bunch of sports. At the  beginning of the season they lost  six games in succession, but they'  never whimpered. Now that they  are winning they are entitled to  all the credit due them.  Monday night's game here with'  Phoenix was clean, and the visitors  simply outplayed the' home  team. Benson, Davidson and Morris were undoubetly the stars for  Phoenix, and Trehern, Fisher,  Donnelly and Neil for Greenwood.  Howey, sparef or Phoenix,  JWi.-rrj-  all through   the gam* and  played  well.>   His clever work was a  surprise to  everyone.    Sayers  played'  all through   the   second   and third  periods     in   place    oi    Mcintosh.  O'Connell, on account of his injured  leg,    was   not in the game at  all.  Mitchell, goal tender,   made some  clever   saves for   Phoenix,   and  it  was   through  no  fault of his'that  the game was lost.    The two goals  for Greenwood   were by  Smith in  the second period, and  by Trehern  in the third.     Lobsinger  of Grand  Forks was referee,   and  Quance of  Phoenix judge of play.  Wednesday night at Grand Forks  the Phoenix  boys were again outclassed.   pAt  the end   of the   first  period the game stood 2-0  in   favor  of the Forks, and at the end of the  second   3-0.      In  the   third  period  Mcintosh   on a pass   from   Benson  scored    for    Phoenix,    and" Grand  Forks scored another goal,   making  the game at   the  end   stand   Grand  Forks, 4; Phoenix 1.    The   ice was  in   very  poor  condition,   and   both  teams   were   handicapped.        Lynn  and   Trehern   of Greenwood' were  the referee and judge  of play.    A  special train was run from   Phoenix  and about 150 fans went down with  the team.  PYTHIAN'S JUBILEE  TO BE CELEBRATED  Local Members Have Interesting  Program Outlined.

The  protest    entered     by    Greenwood  against Grand Forks at  the  game  played at the  former place  on   the  night of January 30th is to be  played over again, and the date for  this  game has not yet been set.  On Thursday evening next,   Feb.  19th, the members of Phoenix lodge  Knights of Pythias will celebrate the  Golden jubilee of the order  in the  Pythian castle  hall, commencing at  8.30 p.m.    A special ritualistic service will be held commemorating the  sqmi-centennial  of the  founding of  Pythian knighthood.    All members  and sojourning brothers, and those  who; at some time have had relations  with the order, are  most urgently  requested to attend, and thus further  an order whose  mission  is  one of  love. - The committee in charge are  sparing no pains to make this a notable event in Pythianism.  The program of the golden jubilee J  celebration  by the  suprerrie   lodge  Knights of Pythias  at Washington,  D.C., Feb. 19, in observance of the  50th anniversary of the founding of  the fraternity- was  announced   this  week by George W. Penniman, secretary  of the  golden jubilee commission.    The order was  instituted  in 1864 at Washington, D.C., where  two "of the  organizers, Abram Van  Der Veer and   Edward S. Kimball,  still live.  The program includes a reception  by President Wilson at the White  House, an address on "Fraterity"  by Secretary of State Bryan, past  chancellor of the Pythian lodge at  Lincoln, Neb., and speeches by  Walter B. Richie of Lima, Ohio,  past supreme chancellor; Mrs. I a  N. Johnson, Central City, Col., and  a number of others.  Thomas J. Carling of Macon, the  special ritualistic service, assisted by;  officers of the supreme lodge.  ' Golden jubilee messages will, be  presented by representatives- of the  55 grand lodges of the order.      "<.  Mr. Penniman says the jubilee will  be celebrated by every Pythian lodge  in North America, one of the features  of the demonstration being the burning of the blue, yellow and red lights  of Pythianism on more than 20,000  altars. On the Sunday preceding  and following the jubilee celebration  all members of the order will attend  special religious services.   -*.   Intermediate Hockey  The Intermediate hockey teams of  Phoenix and Greenwood played here  Thursday nh;ht.    The boys were in  good form and  they gave the spectators an interesting show for their  money.     The   Phoenix 'team   were  too much for the visitors,   however,  | and they  came out  ahead   with   a  score  ol 6  to  4.      Davidson   was  referee.     Following is  the  lineup:  Pierce, goal; Quance, point; Clarke, ,  cover point; Keating, rjover; Geddes,  center;     McDonald,     right    wing;  Murray, left wing.  >���  - > f|  K>l  Parcel Post Works Well  ��� supreme chancellor, .will   conduct, a  Parcel post, which went into effect  last Tuesday, is working well.
