At   Revelstoke  ' he entered for all  the ski events-  in  ,-    which he  was eligible   winning  the  long-distance   race  of seven miles.  There   were  twelve  entries ' for the  event, and* Mr,- Engen covered  the  course in  Ihr. 14mins.'_nd 12secs.,  N.

Fortune, however, desert,  ed Engen   in  the  open ski jumping  contest for  the  B.C. championship,  N. Nelson being judged the winner  - by a score of 202 points to Engen's  190.    The latter.also won,the men's  standing   contest   with   a  jump ,"of  99 feet.     At   the   close of  the competition, Messrs. Nelson and Engen  gave an   exhibition .of hand in hand  jumping, which  excited the  admiration of the spectators.'  The jumping at Rossiand was for  the championship of Canada and  possession . of the Olaus Jeldness  -cup. The holder of the cup, Har  vey Lynn of .Rossiand, did not enter. There were six entries, including three from Phoenix, and 'a re-  vised system of rules was used.  Twenty points were allowed 'for  character or form in jumping, with  one point additional for each foot  jumped. Character included position at start, at the leap, in the air  and'Ianding, according to rules-laid  down. Thirty feet were deducted  for a   fall   or   touching   both   hands  which   were   added   together,  results were as follows:  t, E. Engen, Phoenix; 2, O. Dor-  bam.

Nelson  of Revelstoke in  his   last jump  practically  equalled  Engen's best; but unfortunately he  fell  with his  first jump,   which put  him   out  of  the   reckoning. "   Paul  Nyseter   made  the  longest jump of  76 feet, but lost "points for  touching  with   one  hand.

City League Games  The    Lower    town    and    Granby  hockey teams are scheduled to meet  again today, Saturday, and considerable local interest is manifested over  the    result.     If  Granby    wins   this  game   they   are   the   acknowledged  head of the   league.    The "Roughnecks," however, claim to have more  than a fair prospect of winning-, and  ! if they   do   il   will   require   another  (game or so to decide the   ownership  i of  the   tin   cup.

Coffee Hard Hit  The scheme for bringing the Germans to their knees   is   well   under-  weigh in Canada.     Inquiries at the  Custom House this week elicited the  fact that coffee is one of the articles  particularly hard hit by the new war  tariff.    Tea remains   the   same,  no  doubt for the reason  that the  trade  and growing  of that   commodity is  almost exclusively in   British hands.  Coffee, however, is especially a German investment, millions  of dollars  of that country's money finances the  coffee planters of Costa Rico, Guata-  mala, and other   portions   of South  America.    The duty on  coffee coming into this country is  five  cents a ;  pound, and 10%  ad  valorem, which ;  is   to   say   that   100 lbs.   valued   at  $30 would pay  $5, plus   another $3 '  ad valorem. '���  Thousands lined the route,, but an j F  eye-witness ot the .scene says the  occasion seemed so sad that there  was little or. noV cheering except  from the boys themselves.

A Slight Mistake  The following  story   serves   to illustrate   the   difference between  an '  "alien" and an "alien enemy":    "A '  young British   officer in   charge of a ;  remote station   in   South   Africa received a message from  his superior:  "War   has  been   declared.      Arrest  fill aliens in your district."   Promptly the   superior   received   the   reply:  "Have arrested seven Germans, two  Belgians, two Frenchmen   four Russians, two  Swedes   and  one American.

Status of Enemies In Law  lt is   a difficult question whether  to put down the present very satis-  ' factory stand of the bulk of South  Africa's Dutch population, to loyalty  or gratitude.    Respect, perhaps, is  nearer "the mark, gratitude" not  being a' pronounced' trait of the Afri-  ^'cahc\er',Dqpper.    It should be lat-  *   tefV'Tbr'Jalthough the  British  have'  '"'. .ar-o^eaY swords   with them   in two,  wars the  very race owes its   actual  existence to the British government.  In '79,' the  Zulus  stung to mad-'  ness'by outrages committed against  them   by   Boers, declared   war and  threatened    to    wipe  every   Dutch  man, woman  and child off the map  .of South Africa.     Mustering a hun ���  thousand   strong,   brave   as   lions,  well armed, perfectly drilled in regiments of three  thousand, adepts in  what is known as the present formation of attack, they were a power to  be  reckoned   with���and  the Boers  '   realized it to the fullest limit.  To make  matters  worse  for the  Boers   their   treasury  was   empty,  they had   few   rifles and worse still  no ammunition.    They were a cinch  for the niggers and  lost  no time in  calling   loudly   for   help   from   the  "accursed English," as old   Kruger  used to refer to us.    They cunningly informed   Sir Theophilus   Shep-  stone that there  was great danger  that :he  Zulus would  not be likely  to make . any "exception  in  the case  ofthe English  settlers and the government fell for the story, although  the English  settlers   never had the  slightest   fear  on that score.    The  upshot of it was that Gladstone interfered and the fighting which followed left no   doubt in the minds of  anyone as to what would have been  the  fate  of the  Boers  if England  had turned a deaf ear to their appeal.    One thing is   very  certain.  There would have been no Kruger  and no South African war,  for the  very simple reason that there would  have been no Boers left to fight.    It  will be  seen  then   that so far from  England   being  in   debt   to  South  Africa, the boot is on the other foot  and   Botha  by   his   loyalty   is only  In the Uaited Kingdom a form of  conscription was created, by the  Ballot Act of 1880. This act, which  has never been repealed, provides  for all males over five feet two  inches in height and between the  ages of eighteen and ..thirty being  called upon to serve in the militia.  This law is held in abeyance by a  special act of parliament. In this  country, the law is framed so as to  compel almost every man of reasonable age to serve in" the defence of  the Dominion. This would even  include all aliens who are not enemies of the country. During, the  American civil war conscription was  put in force by. the' federal authorities and many British subjects who  refused were given a few days to  make up their mind or leave the  country.  Very Strang*. The government  shows no signs.. o( adopting Lord  Aylmer's suggestion of bringing  those German prisoners out to Can  ada, and presenting each of them  with a slice of our good Canadian  land. It would appear that some  people's advice is not taken serious  ly by the gentlemen, _&��)tUwa, for  it is now evident- they must also  have turned down the Pioneer's  suggestion to give Teach prisoner a  pension.  ������,   Poor old General Jqffre. If honors are showered on him after the  war, in anything Kke the same proportion as has been the case lately,  he'll have to hire a special secretary  to keep him posted on what he is.  "If anything is to take place on  the seven seas, Germany must know  about it." Very true, kaiser, very  true.    You'll know about it.  The warm weather of the" past  few days has put a damper on something else than the spirits of the  skaters.  The Leipsic's Last Stand  The prophecy uttered' by the captain of the Leipsic, while that vessel  was off the Californian coast, that  his vessel would be the coffin for  him and his men, came near being  literally fulfilled. '* Writing of the  incident, a British officer says:  "We raked-'the Leipsic fore and  aft. Her upper de-k was a shambles. After shfe caught fire and  stopped we steamed round and  round her out of torpedo range. As  her flag was still flying we thought  she was waiting to put a torpedo  into us, and as there were several  explosions that looked like gunfire  we did not know whether she,was  finished or not. The captain told  -the Cornwalli to sink her with gunfire.  "We afterwards learned the appalling news that while we were  circling around her, the crew had  assembled in line waiting for us to  come and save them, and the few  shots of tte Corwall killed every  man except about a dozen. If we  had had any indication that they had  surrendered we could have saved a  large part of tliem, but tbe survivors said the fire was so bad they  j could not do anything,  j     "Eventually   \ye   steamed   up   to  The English court of appeals, consisting of seven judges and presided  over by the Lord Chief Justice, has  just given their decision on the  status of alien enemies in the courts  of the empire.  Dealing with the question whether an alien   enemy could   sue in the  courts, his  lordship   said   they had  decided   that  such   a  person could'  not sue without special licence from  the Crown, for his  rights were suspended until peace was restored.  At  the  same   time  they  had  come  to  the   conclusion   that - he   could   be  sued.    There seemed no reason why  a British  subject  or   neutral person  should   not  enforce  his just rights  for the   payment of a debt against  an alien enemy, for the law did not  allow any degree of immunity to an  alien enemy during the war.  In the interests of public policy  it was only just that an alien enemy  should be sued, for his immunity  from prosecution would injure the  British subject and give relief to  the enemy���a disability from which  the British subject should "not suffer.  At the same time, when an alien  enemy was sued it was only just  and equitable that he should be  allowed, to, defend-the actions 'Tsp'  deprive him of that right would be  contrary to the basic principles of  our law.  For the same reasons an alien  enemy defendant should be allowed  to.appeal, that any error of judgment on the part of a- judge against  that defendant might be rectified.  ���An appeal by an alien enemy plaintiff, however, would have to be suspended until the war was over, for  it stood to reason that if an enemy  alien could not sue he could not  appeal.  SYNOPSIS OF COAL  MINING REGULATIONS  Coal mining rights of the Dominion,  in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta, the Yukon Territory, the Northwest Territories and in a portion of the  Province of British Columbia, may be  leased for a term of fcwenby-one years  at an annual rental of $1 an acre. Net  more than 2,560 acres will be leased to  one applicant. \  Application for a lease must be made  by the applicant in person to the  Agent or Sub-Agent of the district in  which the rights applied for are situated.  In surveyed territory the land must  be described by sections, or legal subdivisions of sections, and in unsur-  veyed territory the tract applied for  shall be staked out by the applicant  hirnBelf.  Each application must be accompanied by a fee of $5 which will be refunded if the rights applied for are not  available, but not otherwise. A royalty shall be paid on the merchantable  output of the mine at the rate of five  cents per ton.  The person operating the mine shall  f urnish the Agent with sworn returns  accounting for the full quantity of  merchantable coal mined and pay the  royalty thereon. If the coal mining  rights are not being operated, such returns should be furnished at least once  a year.  The lease will include the coal mining  rights only, but the lessee may be permitted to purchase whatever available  surface rights may be considered  necessary for the working of the mine  at the rafceof $10.00 an acre.  Por full information application  should be made to the Secretary of the  Department of the Interior, Ottawa,  or to any Agent or Sub-Agent of Dot  minion Lands.  W. W. CORY,  Deputy Minister of the Interior.  N.B.���Unauthorized   publication  of  this advertisement will not be paid for.  ���30690.  Boundary District of British Columbia  RICH   IN   MINERAL-   AGRICULTURAL AND   LUMBERING   POSSIBILITIES-  A MOST PROMISING FSELD FOR THE INVESTOR.  Probably no district in the Dominion of Canada possesses so great an array of  potentialities as the above.    The mountains throughout its entire length and breadth,  are almost without exception mineraliferous, containing gold, silver, copper, iron and  other valuable ores, while in afew localities there are  more than surface indications  of-theJpresence of coal. "   -^ ,-   ":s " "'  FOREST AND MINERAL WEALTH  ' . \ ���'  Its forest stretches are among the richest in the province, and what is of great  importance, easily accessable to river and railway. 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 ofthe smallest outlay. Not the least attraction from the point of  view ofthe 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 ofthe British Columbia Cogper 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 ofthe  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 ofthe 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 of government 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. V.  branch of the former.

No one dreamed that such a  delightful tpuch could be embodied in the mechanism of a machine. _  The new tabulator is a marvel of efficiency: The carriage slides noiselessly to the  appointed place and stops without a jar-an accomplishment which will lengthen the life of  the machine. The left marginal release-key is now placed is just the right position to act  as an anchor for the fourth finger of the operator, and no competent touch operator will  have any difficulty in changing from any other keyboard to this one.
