 PHOEMIX WINS  BOUNDARY CUP  Champions  Play at Rossland for McBride and  Daily News Cups.  The scheduled league game set  for Wednesday of this week did  not materialize, the overwhelming  defeat admininistered by the home  team on the Grand Forks visitors  evidently being too chilly a prospect  - to be faced. The non-appearance  of the defending team was a dis-  appoinment to the local fans, who  while fully expecting the local boys  to more than hold their own are  ever ready to patronize the game.  The premier honors now rest with  Phoenix for the coming year, and a  further attempt will be* made on  Saturday to increase the collection  of silverware #by challenging the  possession of the fine McBride and  Nelson Daily News trophies now  held by the Trail team. For this  purpose the boys left on Friday for  Rossland, where, because of the  absence of suitable ice at Trail, the  decisive contest will take place.    ,  Funeral of H. Swanson  Big Four, Etc., Etc.  If there are any shareholders re-  sident in Phoenix possessing stock  in the Big Four Consolidated Gold  ���Mines, Limited, they should lose  no time in calling at the' Pioneer  Office, and consulting the issue of  the Rossland Miner for February  20th. No doub't^by this time they  are in possession of the so-called  "Emergency War Tax Call," and  unless the, recipient has been oyer-  "whe]med"by''tneTitgTiIsdun'ding title  to the communication he will be  well-advised if he commits the missive to the wasite-paper basket. The  Big Four, fitc, is one of the enterprises that for many years threw the  ���mining  industry   of   this   province  : under  the  gravest suspicion,    and  few   old-timers     of the   Rossland  ' "boom days could be induced to pass  a stack of its antiquated -rertificates  "without being harnessed with a  strait jacket and a pair of blinders.  The' funeral of the late Helmer  Swanson,'.. who died in Spokane,���on  February 6th, took place on Sunday last from St. John's church.'  The edifice was crowded with the  friends of the deceased, among the  mourners being the members of the  Phoenix Aerie of Eagles and the  local lodge of the Scandinavian Aid  and Fellowship Society, in the latter  of which the deceased was a past  president. The Rev. L. B. Lee  officiated at the church and read the  committal prayers at the grave,  which was in the Eagles' cemetery.  The deceased was a native of Swe  den and came to Phoenix over  twelve years ago. He was thirty  years of age. The remains were  escorted as far as the outskirts of  the city by the members of the  above-named lodges, among whom  Mr. Swanson's death was sincerely  mourned.  Mining Notes q�� British Columbia  Ski Club Dance  The next dance to engage the attention is that under the auspices  of the Phoenix Ski club, arrangements for which are now being perfected by an energetic committee of  the club. The latter have engaged  the fine hall of the Oddfellows for  next Tuesday, February 2nd, and  have also secured the services of the  six-piece Ironsides orchestra -by  whom a very attractive progam of  music is being prepared. In view  of the fact that this is the only call  in the year that the ski club makes  for support, a generous response on  the part of local dancers is solicited.  The tickets, which include the price  of supper, cost a dollar and are now  on sale.

Shipments of zinc from mines of  the Slocan for the month of January:,  1915, totaled 849 tons, an increase  of 41 tons over the shipments for the  corresponding month of last"~year.  Of the amount shipped last month,  the Rambler-Cariboo sent 88 tons;  Surprise 600 tons; Utica, 42 tons;  Silverton mines, 119 tons. ';.;���;'  Newton W. Emmons, a mining  man, in his address on mining development in the Coast Range near  Vancouver to the North Vancouver  Board of Trade, urged the necessity  of all local public bodies working together to further this development.  Mr. Emmons said that, copper, zinc,  silver, lead and gold were known to  exist in the mountains north of the  city and these should be developed.  According .to latest reports regarding Hope's oil discovery, the  samples submitted for analysis produced 98.50 per cent of light lubricants, .50 heavy lubricants and 1.00  waste.     Apparently the land in  the  vicinity of Kakawa lake has most all  been staked, and each day appears  to bring forth renewed activities,  which may develop into a real boom  ere long,���-West.Yale Review.  The mineral resources of the Lar-  deau and.Trout Lake mining divisions are dealt with in an interesting  bulletin prepared for the British Col-  umhia Bureau of Mines. This work  was specially undertaken at the direction of the provincial government  last summer by NewtonW.Emmens,  the well-known mineral engineer.  The report which is very comprehensive, is suitably illustrated with some  ii i , ��� *."  excellent photograpnic reprbauctioris  and also sketches of  various   mine  works made from Mr. Emmen's own  observation. ���  Some remarkable specimens of  native silver are on displayin one of  The Kootenaian windows this week.  BOUNDARY 'SPIEL  AT GREENWOOD  Phoenix Brings Home the  Smith arid Burns Curling  Trophies.  The trophies offered for competition among the Boundary curling  clubs at the Greenwood bonspiel.'  appear to have been well scattered  throughout the district. Phoenix,^  besides retaining their hold on the  Smith cup, went one better and  returned home with the Burns'  trophy, the former being won by  J. A. Morrin's <rink and the latter  falling to the rink of Geo. Evans.  R. J. Gardners rink retained possession of the Grand Forks cup,  and the (All-Comers' competition  was won by McCreath's rink of  Greenwood.

The silver  appears as pure almost as that found  in coinage, and in one case a leaf of  it is shaped something after the form  of a soldier, though whether it is intended to represent a Teuton or one  of the Allies no one has so far been  able to determine.  During recent transmission tests  from Kaslo .over Circuit No. 505,  District Superintendent Godfrey  spoke through to Rossland, Grand  Forks, Greenwood and Spokane,  and experienced no difficulty in carrying on conversation with any of  the offices mentioned/ It is expected that" this circuit will be put into  commercial use in the near future.

Copper Mining Outlook  Advices received last Saturday by-  Walter Nichols & Co., Spokane, by  private wire from New York states  that copper sales, were made there  at 14^ cents the pound, the highest  point reached since the outbreak of  the European war, and within a  fraction of the normal average for  the last several years. If the price  maintains at this level it is believed  that the copper-producing properties  of the northwest, all of which have  been idle or producing at greatly reduced capacity for nearly six months,  will resume the maximum output,  says the Spokesman Review.  The Granby Consolidated already  is beginning to feel the effects of the  strengthening market, and there is  good reason to believe that all ol its  furnaces, both at Anyox and Grand  Forks, will be in service again soon.  Lead and silver prices also are  advancing slowly, and local men in  position to be closely in touch with  the situation predict that the mining  industry is soon to enter on another  period of prosperity. They base  their prophecy on the fact thai nearly all the lead-.silver properties have  been kept operating during the depression, and that with even present  prices they are justified in working  again at normal capacity  !PIPBiSIP������!8Siffl5?^SIPSIS��|PSBi  �����8Siwe|M*81  Arthur  Cook   arrived   in   the city  dining the week from Vancouver.  even to the construction of trenches-  lit this particular work each soldier was expected to dig a hole  measuring six feet long, three feet!  wide, and four feet deep. All ranks  appeared to fully realize the serious j  nature of the work before them and  all were prepared to see the thing  through to a successful finish.  G=  Anonymous Letters  Of all the public ^nuisances that  afflict a community, the anonymous  letter writer is perhaps the one to  be feared the most���and to be pitied.  An open enemy seldom ever writes  one. The culprit is generally a  "friend." The parallel is a snake  in the grass, perhaps an ostrich.  Unfortunately the breed flourishes  in Phoenix and has been very industrious of late, but their identity  is fairly well established. Experts  in handwriting maintain that, except in rare instances, it is well  nigh hopeiess for a person to write  an intelligible letter and disguise  the handwriting, that is of course  when a sample copy of the party's  "sane" manuscript can be placed j  alongside of the suspected cali-'  graphy. In most cases thedecep-i  tion is penetrated by a study of the ;  last two or three   lines   of the letter. '  While the average citizen is _ac-;  customed to discount much from  the face value of much of the news  which comes from the other side, it  is clearly apparent that Germany is  trying through the United States to  prevent Great Britain from giving  her a close of the same medicine  which poor little Belgium would  have had to swallow had it not been  for the generosity of the people of  this country. ��� Boston   Commercial.

Canada   is   responding promptly to  the call  of the motherland for men  and equipment.    Britain needs more  than men, she must have food���food  this  year  and food   the   next year.  "We  are sending of our surplus  now.     We  should   prepare   for   a  larger surplus   this    year  and   the  next.     The government is strongly  impressed   with   the'desirability .of  increasing the crop acreage^in Canada.    The Canadian  farmer,  earnestly bending all  his energies  to increase    th��    food   supply   for   the  Britisher at  home  and   the British  soldier  at the   front,   is  doing  his  share in this gigantic struggle of the  empire.

Stole "1423" Purses  Saturday, Feb. 27, 1915.  If  the   present  day   Belgian   refugees sonly  confer  a  tithe   of the  benefits their brethren  of the  16th  century have showered on England  the  debt   they  owe will   be  amply  wiped out.    It is  quite  safe to say  th'at there is'scarcely a single industry of national   importance  in   the  United   Kingdom   which   does   not  either.owe its existence or improvement to the refugees from   the Low.  Countries and the north of France.  These  people gave -a    filip to the  ship-building industry,  they  established factories for the manufacture  of arms, they introduced the making  of silk, taffeta and cloth.     The Irish  linen industry was founded by them,  the same;can be said of the English  potteries and  the  making  of glass.  Before their arrival in  England   all  glass was imported.       Honiton lace  is  another  commodity   we  owe  to  them.    Then  there is the introduction of the hop plant and  the founding of the Kentish hop gardens.'We  are  also  indebted   to   them  for the  dried fish industry of the east coast  towns and a hundred other benefits.  Coming from a country with a coast  line below   the  sea   level they were  adepts   in   the   work   of reclaiming  the marsh lands of Lincolnshire and  to them belongs the credit   for constructing the  first windmill   in England.    The  steel trade of Birminp--  ham is  also  heavily   in  debt to the  persecuted Belgians.  One of the chief factors makirig-  for high prices in  food  stuffs .s the  closing of the   Dardanelles   by   the  Turkish government. :   This action  'shift ;'bff. completely   the   supply  of  grain from  Southern  Russia, which  is one of the chief granaries of Europe.      Recent   naval   developments  carried    out   by the   Anglo-French  fleet    in    the   Dardanelles  seem  to  point to a  speedy  break-up  of the  Ottoman forts  and  the  consequent  opening  up  of [the historic  waterway to   international traffic.      It  is  said that scarcely a bushel of grain  of the 1914 harvest has reached the  United Kingdom, and  as  the usual  contribution  from] Russia in wheat  alone   is    about   seventeen   million  bushels yearly it seems very reasonable   to  infer  that  the   deficit   has  made itself felt.  The suggested acquisition of Turkey in Europe by the Russians  would seem to be a move diametrically opposed to the cherished desire of the~"great Catherine, whose  maxims have always carried weight  in Russian diplomatic circles. This  -doctrine of the empress was that in  all future conquests,., no portion of  the Muscovite empire must be separated by. the sea,���', which is just  what will happen if the Russian  flag is hoisted over Constantinople.  tured an.English ambulance soldier  on whose person was found no less  than   1423   purses,   which   he   had  stolen    from     wounded    Germans.

We learn again this'Week of another case of an appreciative landowner in Scotland, who, after the  parties concerned had sacrificed their  sons and other relatives for the^ protection of his old carcase, at once  took advantage of the old people by  raising the rent, "just to make life  more pleasant for them, of course."  Oh, Scotland! when will you get  wise?" -  It appears strange that there can  always be found suckers willing to  invest money in newspaper enterprises, especially in fields already  overdone. There is about as much  money lost in newspaper schemes  as in the mining game.���Kootenain,  Commenting  on   the government  scheme   to   assist   in the  establishment of a British .analine dye industry, an  eastern   paper say's:   "It is  not   likely   that   the  scheme   above,  outlined will'drive  the German dye  industry  permanently  out  of Great  Britain.      When the war is over the  foreign dyes   will   again   be on   the  market, and their cheapness and excellence will   ensure them   a certain  dale.     But the Germans will at least  Jind themselves confronted by a new  competitor established on a new and  permanent basis.  They will find a British analine  dye industry with roots and branches  constantly growing. Attempts to  ruin the British undertaking by un-  "You fight for money. I'd be  ashamed to do that. We fight for  honor," said a German prisoner to  his British guard. "Yes," replied  Tommy Atkins, "I suppose we all  fight for what we lack the most."  It is now an open secret that the  much-heralded German trade commission which toured Canada in  1913 was nothing else than a spying jaunt on behalf of the kaiser's  general staff.  While fishing recently, off Tac-  oma, a fisherman hooked a large  octopus that came nearly upsetting  the boat. The catch weighed 144  pounds and each tentacle measured  nine feet in length.

Not  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 he staked out by the applicant  himself.  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  furnish 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 rate of $10.00 an acre.  For full information application  should be made to the Secretary of the  Department of the Interior, Ottawa,  or to any Agent or Sub-Agent of Dominion Lands.  W. W. CORY,  Deputy Minister of the Interior.  N.B.���Unauthorized publication of  this advertisement will not be paid for.  ���80890.  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 min'eraliferous, containing .gold, silver, copper, iron and  other valuable ores, while in a few localities there are more than surface indications  of the presence of coal.  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,;orvwhich coiild not be reached  by the expenditure of the smallest outlay.   \.Not":the;Te.ast-^ point of  view of the 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.district1 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 of the-British Columbia Copper 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  of the  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 of the Boundary as an agricultural-and fruit-growing centre  arc 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 Boundaryr district.    At  present this.sectioir is served  by  two of the greatest systems on the continent, the  C. P..

Vice-Admiral Sir David Beatty  was made a. captain when only 29  years of age. The rank of vice-  admiral was conferred on him after  the Heligoland battle.  Sailing from Nicaragua in June  with a cargo "of" wood for Germany,  the German sailing ship Viganelle  arrived in the English channel recently, the captain not having heard  that war had been declared.  Two Germans were arrested a  few days ago Jby the Mission City  police, Conrad^ Hirsch, a reservist  in the 12th Bavarian Infantry and  Carl Fessell of the Landstrum.  They were handed over to the care  of the military authorities.  Joseph Bruzenak, an Austrian,  has been arrested at Bridgeport,  U.S. He has confessed that he  was concerned in a plot to destroy  the Union Metallic Cartridge company, which at present is engaged  in turning out huge supplies for the  British army.  . The    most    extravagant    society  function ever given   is   said ' to have  been the "jewel ball." of the Princess  De   Broglie, , which   took   place    in  Paris just previous   to   the outbreak  of   war.

The report has caused  a deal ^j'f ^surprise in Copenhagen!  and the belief is expressed that the  vessel was German.  .Charged with stealing 127 gold  and silver watches and'seven clocks,  two soldiers of the first Canadian  contingent have been committed for  trial.. Captain Shaw of'the Strath-  cona Horse, who was present in  court, told the London magistrate  that such men were not fit to serve  in the Canadian contingent. They  wouldn't be allowed back in the  regiment at any price.  Attempts to wreck trains in England and Scotland still continue and  terrible "results have only been  averted by . the vigilance of tile  mititary guards.

By planning well in advance, each month's operations can be  carried through more effectively when the time comes. Delays later on, through neglect  of this, will mean loss to you" and to the Empire.  Use the Best  Seed  This year, for the sake of the  Empire,    fanners    should    be  exceptionally   careful    in   the  selection of seed.    Cheap seed  is often the dearest.   If every  Canadian   fanner   would   use  only the best varieties, and sow  on properly cultivated soil, the  grain output of Canadian farms  would be doubled.   Deal only  with reliable seedsmen.    Write  at once to Canadian Department  of Agriculture, Ottawa, and to  your Provincial Agricultural Department for information as to  the best varieties of seed to be  used in your particular- locality,,  and use no others.  ATTEND  YOUR  CONFERENCE  Clean Your Seed  All grain intended for seed  should be thoroughly cleaned  and selected to retain only  the strong kernels.' You can  reap only what you sow. It  , does not pay to sow weeds.  Clean seed means larger crops  and helps to keep the land clean.  When you have your seed grain  ready, put it through the cleaner  once more.  Test Your Seed  Test your seed for vitality,  too. Seed is not always as  good as it looks. For example,  oats, quite normal in appearance  and weight, may be so badly  damaged by frost that their  value for seed is completely  destroyed. If you have any  doubt as to the quality of your  seed a sample may be sent free  to the seed laboratory at Ottawa,  or Calgary, for test. But in  most cases this simple test will  prove sufficient:���  Take a saucer and two pieces  of blotting paper. Place seed  between blotting papers. Keep  moist and in a warm place.  In a few'days, you will be able'  to see whether the vitality is  there. Neglect to test your seed  may mean the loss of crop.  Local and General  M  -.  ���   i  n  -.'3  ���ft  8  The Farm Labour Problem        Increase Your Live Stock  The Government suggests the forming of an  active committee in every town and city, composed  ���of town and country men and women. This committee would find out the sort of help the farmers  of their locality need, and get a list of the unemployed in their town or city, who are suitable for  farm labour. With this information, the committee  would be in a good position to get the right man for  the right place.  Councils, both rural and urban, Boards of Trade  and other organizations could advantageously  finance such work. Every unemployed man in the  town or city who is placed on-the farm becomes  �� mediately a producer, instead of a mere consumer  d a civic expense.  Breeding stock are today Canada's most'valuable  asset. The one outstanding feature of the world's  farming is that there will soon be a great shortage  of meat supplies. Save your breeding stock. Plan  to increase your live stock. Europe an^ die United  States as well as Canada will pay higher prices for  beef, mutton and bacon in the very near future.  Do not sacrifice now. Remember that live stock is  the only basis for prosperous agriculture. You are  farming not speculating.  Canadian  Department of  Agriculture,  Ottawa, Canada  I"  i  J  i  No Postage Required.
