Crowded galleries, etc., marked  the interest sliovvu by Boundaryites  in the game of Wednesday last,  played on -the local ice, for outside  of the attendancev by home people  the spectators included a delegation  of two hundred from the Forks and  many others from outlying points  of both-the Kootenay and Boundary  districts. '       . :%  The   contest,  which   was   strictly  speaking' a re-play of the contested  game   of   January   27,    brings tfi'e  position of  affairs \n  the Boundary  league to a straight tie, the decision  now resting on   the   issue of a final  game   between   Grand    Forks  and  Phoenix.       Probably   riever  in   the  history of interior hockey has excitement reached   such   a   pitch as that  occasioned   by   this    match,   while  local money  in   abundance in favor  of Phoenix   was in  evidence   on all  sides.     It must be stated, however,  that just as   much  confidence   was  reposed by  the visiting boosters in  the ability of their, home team.  The ice conditions could scarcely  be improved upon and as a result  the speed was considerably accelerated. Atkins of Nelson refereed  the game, his ���,;���, decisions being  marked with that impartiality   dear  period   and   within   a   minute   the  Forks had pierced the home defence  and Lynne secured the second   goal  for    his    colors     amid    tumultous  Grand Forks applause.     The finest  of stick work and the neatest checking of the season then" followed and  on McKelvey passing to Moore   the  latter landed  one   that two   Clarks  would   find  difficult  to stop.        A  little   later   iMoore   again   'hovered  suspiciously around Clark  and trie  latter swallowing the bait, stepped  a   little    outside     the   net,   giving  Moore   the  opportunity to register  the   third goal   for  Phoenix.     Both  sides by  this time were  feeling the  strain of the'terrific pace, but of the  two   the   home  seven  appeared   to  fee.l it the  least.      The score at the  close of the second period stood 3-2  in favor of the home team.  Some classy hockey greeted the  spectators during the final period  and Clark.for the Forks performed  yeoman service for the visitors.  The pace was also something to  wonder at, and a few peualties for  minor offences were impartially  handed out. The period was also  conspicuous for : the ;neat short  passing  Oddfellows Defeat Knights  Saturday evening saw  the ' final  match deciding the Phoenix Fraternal Society championship, when the  Knights  of   Pythias   lined   up    in  battle array against their old opponents,   the Oddfellows.    Owing to  the enforced absence of one  of the  three-link men, the   knights agreed  to give the six-man  method a trial.  The game was  unusually stubborn,  so much  so,   thai  during  the first  half neither side was able to score.  The second  half,  however, was full  of exciting situations  and  the Oddfellows   were    without   doubt: the  aggressors,    Percy   Poulton   being  very   busy   defending  the   knights*  net.     In this   he was  ably  assisted  by A. White.     The faulty shooting  ofthe triple links was very marked  and times   without  number the opportunity,to   score was  lost.    The  game  was remarkable for the chivalry  displayed   on   both   sides   and  quite often   the   puck  was passed  to a   player  of the  opposing  side.  The turkey trot was not in evidence,  but the  grizzly  hug   and fairy flop  were repeatedly demonstrated.  Two  or   three   minutes   from   time    the  stonewall  defence   of   the   knights  was   pierced   by   the s Oddfellows,  and Small passing to  the right had  the mortification of seeing the puck  stop a few feet from  the net, where  a shot from Spence took it against  the post and . into  the possession of  Jackson who eventuallymade '.good!  F. S. NORCROSS NOW  B.C. COPPER GEN. SUPT.  Successor to E. Hibbert���Native  of Menominee, Mich.  The    appointment    has   recently  been announced of F.   S.   Norcross  junior   to   the  position   of   general  supt.     of   the    British    Columbia  Copper  company.      Mr.   Norcross,  who   has   his  headquarters  in this  city,    has   for   the   past    eighteen  months filled the  post  of supt. of  the company's Rawhide,mine, arriving  here  from Wilkinson, Wash.,  where, he   held   a similiar  appointment, at the collieries there.     He is  a native of Menominee, Mich.,  and  a   graduate of  the   Michigan   university and School of Mines,  Calumet.    His experience of mines and  mining was gained first hand in the  copper mines  of the  Calumet  and  Hecla and iron mines of Ishpeming,  in his native State.     Mr.   Norcross  .is probably the youngest  gen-supt.  in the Canadian  West,   being   considerable under thirty.

The tension   was  ultimately    relieved    by   Neil   and  Bassett  who   borrowed    the   puck  until Rochon and Ross dissolved the  partnership;   this   was   reversed   a  little later   when   the  home' squad  advanced      with   some    fine   combination and subjected Clark to  the  time  of his  life.     Clark,  however,  met the  test successfully until Neil  slipped an artful   pass to McKelvey  who sent   it   into   the   net amidst a  perfect  pandemonium  of applause.  Moore   now   tried  his   hand   for    a  shot,      but      a      quick    check    by  McGregor   brought   the    puck   and  the   visiting   army   with   it   to    the  front of the home   net  and afforded  Mitchell another opportunity to display his   puck-stopping stunts,   one  of  which   enabled    Davidson,   who  never   played  a better game,   to remove the puck single-handed to the  other end,   but   the   resulting   shot  failed to materialize.      Immediately  afterwards  friend Lynne attempted  a  body  check   and   measured   his  length on the  ice, and McWha taking  sole    possession   recorded   the  equalizing  score.      Lynne   immediately afterwards despatched another  of his   hi-po\ver   shots   at  Mitchell,  which the latter deftly turned aside.  Both nets   now   received   attention,  Clark    and     Mitchell    both    being  called upon to defend their respective  trusts.      Rochon   now   became   aggressive,   but  Neil    and   Davidson  scenting  danger fell   back, the former passing to Sayers when  operations ceased for the first period, the  score standing 1-1.  Strenuous   play marked ' the   2nd  St. Andrew's Church Concert  The congregation of St. Andrew's  Presbyterian   church    gave  a   very  successful concert on   Friday, of last  week in the church  building.     The  program, which was unusually lon  but withal  interesting,   consisted of  instrumental selections, and  recitations,    with    a    number   of    vocal  contributions   by    local   ladies   and  gentlemen,   ably   assisted   by  Mrs.  li. S.   Logie of Nelson, whose fine  soprano   voice   entranced an appreciative and   music-loving   audience.  The juvenile   portion   oi'  the entertainers, of  which   there were   quite  ;i   number,     more     than    exceeded  expectations, two or three of whom  were   especially   good   and   plainly  exhibited   evidence of  careful training.     The  violin   solo   by T.   Silas  was an   excellent   performance and  well deserved the encore,   while the  other   vocal    and    recitative   items  were   equally   deserving of the un  stinted applause that followed them  DID YOU EVER NOTICE how  much better you feel, how much  more confidence you have in yourself when you're well dressed ?

Dolliver, of Caledonia,  Queen's Co., N.S., says: "I must add  my testimony to the value of Zam-Buk.  Ulcers and sores broke out on my arm,  and although I tried to heal them by using various preparhtions, nothing  seemed to do me any good. The sores  spread until from fingers to elbow was  one mass of ulceration.  "I had five different doctors, and  faithfully carried out their instructions.  I drank pint after pint of blood medicines, tried salve after salve, and loti on  after lotion; but it was of no avail.  "My father then took me thirty miles  to see a well-known doctor. He photographed the arm and hand. ��� This photograph was sent to a New York hospital  to a specialist; but they sent word that  they could do nothing further for me,  and I was in despair.  "One day a friend asked me if I had  tried Zam-Buk. I said I had not, but  I got a box right away. That first box  did me more good than all the medicine  I had tried up to that time, so I continued the treatment. Every box healed  the sores more and more until, to make  a long story short, Zam-Buk healed all  the sores completely. Everybody in  this place knows of my case, and that  it is Zam-Buk alone which cured me."  Minister corroborates. ���The Rev. W.  B. M. Parker, of Caledonia, Miss Dolli-  ver's minister, writes: "This is to certify that the testimonial of Miss Dolliver is correct as far as my knowledge  goes. I have known her for a year and  a half, and her cure effected by Zam-  Buk is remarkable."

To estimate the effect which   will  be exercised upon provincial revenue  by   the  adoption   of tlie   free  preemption principle, it- may  be   noted  thaa last��year,   the   maximum'year  in this regard in provincial   history,  3650   pre-emption     records      were  issued, which, assuming each record  covered the maximum allotment of  160 acres,  would  represent  a  contribution   to   revenue   of $584,000.  Against   the   loss   of  this   revenue  the government in adopting its new  policy   places   as   prospective   com-  pensation'thc   varied   and   manifold  advantages  which   must   accrue to  British   Columbia   through   an   immediate occupation of its wild lands  and their transformation into farms,  orchards and gardens.  Offsetting the revenue loss involved in the new pre-emption  policy, the amendment to the forests  act provides for an increase of the  royalty collected on timber cut on  crown lands from fifty cents to one  dollar per thousand feet board  measurement, such increase however.not taking effect until three  years hence. There are also found  in the forest* act amendment bill,  provisions extending the time for  timber holding surveys upon re  commendation of the Surveyor-  General enlarging the prohibition of  export of unsealed timber by making  Ihe Official  Teste show Dr. Price's  Baking Powder to he most  efficient in strength, of highest  purify and heaithfutaess  BAKIN6P0WDER  s ��  No Alum, No Phosphate of Lime  such timber and the tngs  towing  it  liable to seizure and confiscation,  prescribing reforms in timber markings, and increasing the, annual  collections for foresfprotection service from timber licensees, lessees  and owners of timber lands. Whereas this, impost -has; been one cent  per*-'acre'-per annum under the  forestry legislation of 1912, it will  be one and one half cent in future,  the government continuing to contribute dollar for dollar.  During committee consideration  of the bill prescribing regulations  for the burning of human bodies  and the establishment of crematoria  in British Columbia, Mr. Parker  Williams offered the suggestion  that provisions might be made for  the compulsory holding of a coroner's inquiry in the case of every  death where cremation was selected  in place of- the' more customary  burial of the dead. The Socialist  leader argued that deaths by murder  might become impossible of proof  if the remains of the victims were  consumed by fire, burial leaving it  possible to trace a cause of death by  exhumation of the remains, but this  possibility was defeated if the bodies  were cremated. Hon. Dr. Young  rejected the suggestion, holding  that it would be but one chance in a  million that the ends of justice  would be defeated as the member  for Newcastle had suggested, while  on the other hand the advantages  of cremation were manifold.  "As a medical man." said the  minister, "I thoroughly believe in  cremation as the best method for  the disposal of the bodies of the  dead, and if the premier would allow  me to do so I should bring in a bill  providing for compulsory cremation  in British Columbia."  Political Fanatics  The' fanatical suffragette movement in Great Britain must have received an unusually heavy blow  last week, when a couple of irresponsible wnmen, bedecked with  ribbons and carrying banners, attempted to force their way into  St. Paul's cathedral during the progress of the solemn memorial service in memory of Captain Scott  and his ill-fated companions. John  Bull must be about accustomed to  the vagaries of the "militants" by  now and this latest will do more to  open his eyes to the unsuitability of  women having any voice in the  affairs of u great nation.

Indeed,  we are assured, for example, that  almost every city of 40,000 inhabitants in Pennsylvania is investigating vice or taxes, or the grand  jury system���one or the other, or  perhaps all three.  "The   new governor  of lhe State  of New York had hardly established  himself in   the   executive  chair   before he  began   "investigating," and  the work of inquiry into the various  state     departments    was    actually  under   way   before   Governor   Dix  realized   that   the   "fated  hour had  arrived."   Simultaneously, with the  State   inquiry   at   Albany,   we   find  police and vice investigations going  on   in   New York   city.     We  have  the   money   trust   investigation    at  Washington,      and     another   congressional committee also   at work  inquiring in lb banking and currency;  while   the   ways   and   means   committee    is    hauling    citizens   from  north, south,   east and   west on the  tarifT hearings;  a Senate committee  is   trying   to   find   out   what   it can  about  the  use   and   abuse   of campaign   funds     and    the   Interstate  Commerce   Commission  is continuing its   inquiry   into   the  causes of  railroad wrecks.  "So it   goes all over the country.  New    Jersey     is    -overhauling    its  method of assessing and   collecting  taxes   and   trying   to   simplify- the  various disjointed commissions, and  bureaus to make them compact and  efFectivc.     In   Chicago,   when   they  are      not    investigating    'National  Harvester, they   are   after oleomargarine.        In    Ohio    every    blessed  -thing- under the sun'  is under investigation or supervision.  "Is it possible that the country  can be so unutterably wicked as all  these things would seem to indicate?  Granted that some of this is good,  is it all "uplift," or is not some of  it the merest bid for the votes of  discontent and incompetence?"���  Wall Street journal.  tie*, which, with tbe cost of a tunnel  for entering the city will entail an  expenditure of $8,000,000.     ',  With the tariff lowered, and  the American manufacturer^ subjected to unlimited competition from  ,| Canada, and wiih the farmers and  wprkingmen immigrating to the  Dominion, it-is argued that a terrible blow would be struck at the  prosperity ofthe United Slates.  Our Patriotic Opposition   ,  The   Gr.ipd    Forks    S'un,    which  ever since lhe advent of the present  enlightened   government   to power,  has   suffered considerably  from the  "slings   and   arrows    of   outraged  fortune," treats   the   matter of German   airship   visits   to    the   British  coast as something   in the nature of  a huge joke, and   "airly"  dismisses  the   matter  with  the  outrageously-  implied statement  that   "ihe advertising ^agents   of Premier  Borden's  emergency contribution are working  overtime."     To     read    the- Sun's  effusion one is inclined lo think that  its editor has lost his  old-lime faith  in   the   future   possibilities of aeronautics,   and   in   reference   to those  supernatural   aerial visits, it may be  news lo  our conlemporary to learn  thai   during   Lhe   past   few   days   a  bill prohibiting the,visits   of foreign  aircraft was introduced and hurriedly   passed   by   both   houses   of  the  British Parliament.     Thai there was  no doubt in the mind ofthe Imperial  cabinet as lo the  genuine nature   ot  the   alarming   reports   was    plainly  evidenced by the significant request  to the   Opposition   not   to delay lhe  passing of  the   measure,   a request  that   was    loyally    respected,    and  which, in the light of  recent events,  would be too much for us to expect  from our own "loyal" opposition at  Ottawa.  i  ������������J. -.E'U'JIU���._�� ��� _|  .'".Wis  -tt  NERVOUS, LIFELESS  DEBILITATED MEN  YOUNG MEN AND MIDDLE-AGED MEW.  the victims of carl/ indiscretions and later e_T  ceMBCd, who are failures in life���you are tho  ones wo can restore to manhood and revival  tho spark of energy ond vitality.

On the basis of the showing made  in the brief, iLis argued that Canada is engaged in construction work,  with a view* to wresting commerce  from the United Spates. It is also  pointed out that the great railroad  construction that is going on on  this side would not have been  undertaken except for Hie prospect  of an open market in the States.  The American manufacturers contend that the Canadian railroads are  invading that country as rapidly as  possible and they assert that it is  now just as easy to get an unbroken  ride from Chicago to Banff as it  is from Chicago to Philadelphia.  The migration of the American  citizens, particularly those of the  west, is held to be part and parcel  of a scheme to secure closer relations with the republic, while the big  excursion traffic between Chicago  and vicinity to the British Columbia  summer resorts has evidently excited the envy of our southern neighbours.

Andrew Carnegie's determination  to 'rid himself of his burdensome  wealth before he dies promises to  meet with a further obstacle, likely  to be put in his path by the Vancouver Library Board. The board  proposes to refund to the Laird of  Skibo $50,000, which he gave some  years ago for the erection of a  library buifding in that city.  Vancouver's Carnegie library was  erected twelve years ago, the mil-  lioonaire advancing $50,000 Since  that time the site has become immensely valuable through the  development of the surrounding  territory, and it is now proposed to  sell the site and erect a more1 suitable -building on a less valuable  location. It is felt/ that the only  way in which this may be done is  by paying back to Mr. Carnegie the  amount he contributed towards the  building, with interest for the period  the city has had it. This would  free the board from any obligation  to maintain the present building for  all time.  There is also a "deep-rooted objection held locallyr.to* the designation 'Garnegie Library".' In labor  union circles there is a strong objection against the city being indebted for a public institution to a man  whom they believe to be opposed to  organized labor.  It is probable that a vote of the  rateplayers on the proposition will  be taken.    ���  A Promising Find  F.

"With the possible exception of  Jimmy Marshall's Oyster cocktails  and crab a la Newberg, a ,fish diet  invariably affects my nerves."  "Were you overtrained,,_Mr.  Poulton?" queried the reporter.  "Overtrained nothing!" replied that  puck-stopping expert. "The knights  never^train.' , We generally rely on  the training' we get handling, new  candidates through "the various degrees. It's quite sufficient for us, I  assure you. I am unable to account  for the result.  Like A. A. White, Mr. Gordon  thanked his interviewer for the opportunity afforded for a public statement. "I think," said Mr. Thompson, "that this championship should  be played off by five-year members.  You see our third degree is a terrible strain on us, and, generally  speaking it takes about four  years for a full-fledged knight to  get over it. It is three years since  1 went through it and I am still  suffering from its effects'."  "What we want on our team are  a few married men," says Jim Carter. "How the knights expect' to  win otherwise is more than I can  make out."  The line-up was as follows���Oddfellows: Dowdle, goal,- R. McDonald, point; Cameron, cover; Jackson,  centre; Barnes, right wing; Speiice,  left wing. Knights: Poulton, goal;  While, point; Carter, cover point;  Cook, left wing; centre, G.
