The Hidden Creek smelter,  hydro-electric power plant,   railway  system and ore bins  are  completed  and ready for service, but it  probably  will   be 10  days or two  weeks  before the concrete dam is   finished  although^     pouring     material    has  begun.

The latter, after reading   the   bill  and   admiring  poster, remarked to the officer   that  the    play   advertised   was  ��� worthy  of his patronage.    The emissary  of  the law, thought so, too,   and   after  a study of  his ��� interrogator's   face,  recognized   in  him   a' long   wanted  fugitive from   Uncle   Sam's  justice.  The   logger,    after    admitting   the  soft impeachment, was immediately  placed under arrest and conveyed to  Greenwood.  The accused, who is known by  the cognomen of.

It is said by teamsters that the  roads from' Salmo to the different  mines in Sheep Creek are the finest  in the history of the country, enabling the teams to haul as high as  tentons on a load.  Over 50 tons of ore per day is be-  _s  announced that the entire' plant at  Hidden Creek will be thoroughly  tested before active operations are  inaugurated, so that when ore is  started through ' the works there  will not have to be any shutdown  for adjustments-  Hockey Teams Go East  Frank Patrick is busy these   days  arranging for a tour of the Vancouver team to Eastern Canada.

The first game was  played at Grand   Forks   last   night,  as the Pioneer was going  to   press.  The   second   game   will   be   played  next Monday night, either at Nelson  or Rossland.

'  Therefore next Monday night's  game will tell the tale as to whether  the Boundary or the   Kootenay   will  hold the much converted  silverware i j   /dance  for the next year.  Bay, Zincton and Emerald mines.  W. R. Salisbury, who has a lease  on the Hudson Bay, has seven four-  horse teams in operation hauling  ore from these mines.  Four thousand tons of silver ore  are now stored in the bunkers of the  Silver Standard mine, located nine  miles from Hazelton, awaiting shipment south to Trail via Prince Rupert and Vancouver. These mines  are proving rich and the ore is said  to run at $132 to the ton.  Within tbe next six weeks the  long tunnelof the Payne mjne will  reach the point to which Mt is projected that, the object of tapping at  depth the large ore bodies which  have been developed in the.upper  levels. , By March 1, the tunnel,  which is being driven at the rate  of about 200 feet per month, will be  in about 3,200 feet.  It was the best ore yet that the  Harris Boys shipped from the  American Boy at Hazelton a few  weeks ago. There were twenty-five  tons in the car and it went to the  Trail smelter. IQ that shipment  were eight tons of ore taken from  the hundred and fifty  foot level, the  as   follows; J '175."2 Iozs.\*rin  33 per cent lead "and .9 in gold  Over the new Grand Trunk Pacific  line  to   Prince  Rupert,    down   the  coast   to Vancouver by steamer and  eastward over the Canadian   Pacific  railway to Trail smeiter 104 tons of  ore arrived last week from the Silver  .Standard   mine  at   New  Hazelton,  B.  C.    This  is   the  third shipment  to the Consolidated companyls smel-  terto.be made  from  this property,  the   two  former  shipments' having  shown     that'  the    ore    from    the  northern mine was  rich  enough  to  stand the burden of the long haul to  the smelter.  At  a   meeting  in   Montreal,   the  shareholders of the Canadian   Gold-  fields     Syndicate     endeavored     to  peacefully   terminate   the  existence  of that interesting company.   Nothing   very    definite    resulted    from  the   annual   meeting  of the   Syn-I  dicate, at which   a proposition  was  advanced to divide the Consolidated  Smelters  shares   in   the company's  treasury   among   the  shareholders.  The proposition   was  discussed and  was   finally  left   to   the  company's  solicitor's   to    evolve   a   workable  scheme.    The   distribution   of   the  Smelters' shares would  presumably  presage the winding up of the C.G.  F. Syndicate.  . The Goldfields Syndicate was a product of the British  Columbia boom of twenty years ago.  Its   plan   of operation  was to buy  into operating  companies, and   one  of these .ventures was a share in the  St.    Uugene   mine.     Much  against  the will of some   of the Syndicate,  'the St. Eugene   was taken into the  Consolidated   Mining   &  Smelting  company,   and   the    syndicate    received 4,270 shares of smeler stock,  The Knights  of Pythias  are' so  worthy an organization and their ritual    so purely   American   that  the  celebration of the   50th  anniversary  of.their foundation commands  general recognition.     The annual  convention celebrated the golden jubilee  ftt  Washington    last    week,     and  nearly 8,000 lodges in America and  Canada also did so.  ' The Knights deserve  to be  wel-  corned by President Wilson, and   to  be commended by Secretary   Bryan  as "one of the greatest influence  to  hasten   the    coming    of   universal  brotherhood."    Justus H. Rathbone  and   his five associates founded this  order to practice friendship,   charity  and benevolence.      The   application  of these virtues is by no means confined to members of the society  as  beneficiaries, but  radiates  at  large  through the community.    The motto  of the organization:    "Be generous,  brave  and   true,"   is  a   help  to altruistic living and an inspiration  to  the spirit  of good  citizenship   and  social service.  It is not to be wondered at that  the Knights of Pythias, according  to the latest published statistics,  number over 715,000 members in  Canada and the United States, and  that their numbers are exceeded  only by those of the Odd Fellows,  the Fr.ee Masons and the Modern  Woodmen     of   America.��� Spokes-  A waiting Rise of Watfer-  Storeroom Enlarged���  to Built Post Office.  man-Review.

In   Spokane   the    young   people  - dance the   "hesitation waltz"   without the slightest hesitation.   !���* '  *      As a matter of fact  the   ''silver-  " ware"'has   only   been   "loaned"   to  Grand Forks.     Some day it   will all  ' 'be back on the  bill again.  The man who would "rather be a  - lamp post in New   York"   than, the  : mayor of his own town, was probably cut out for the former.-  .     ��� _/.   The Granby shipments to date  have   passed   the   ten    million   ton  1 Anark. And there are millions of  tons of ore still left in  the mines at  *. Phoenix.   ;���^* ;   Panic or no panic work at the  mines inHhe Phoenix camp goes on  "v without interruption, and the ���properties are earning handsome profits.  On March 16th the 'Granby company will pay its regular quarterly  dividend.   -~  The fine of $20 and   costs,   or  a  sentence of thirty days in the Nelson  jail, meted out to W. G" McGregor,  the Grand Forks hockey player, will  undoubtedly    have    the    effect    of  eliminating the rough stuff in   these  games.     McGregor  pleaded   guilty  to the charge, showing conclusively  that he knew he was in the   wrong.  Sayers, his victim, will carry a scarj  on his forehead the rest  of his   life.  In the playing of  these games   certain  players have often been   heard  to make the threat that they "would  get"   some  player   on the opposing  team.     Probably one of the   fastest  and most gentlemanly players   who  was in the Boundary hockey league  is Bernie   Morris,   who   played   left  wing  on   the Phoenix    team.     But  there were  few  games   during the  past winter that he escaped  serious  injury or even a complete knockout.  It was known that he was a strong,  hard player,  and   the   only  way to  defeat him was by unfair   and   dirty  tactics.      It was seldom he ever got  the    opportunity    of    showing   his  ability,   for  he   was   kept  covered  continually and handicapped in every  way possible.     It is  hard   lines   indeed when it is necessary  to   resort  to   the   police   court   to bring these  culprits to time, but it is an old saying that desperate   diseases  require  desperate methods of treatment.  Premier will Visit Ottawa.  Sir Richard   McBride   will   leave  Victoria for Ottawa at  the  close of  t  the preseat session   of the  legisla  ture  to  discuss  several  matters of  provincial    interest    with , Premier  Borden. ,  Among; the questions which he will  take up with the" Dominion 'authorities in the appointment of the commission on better;,terms for British  Columbia. Since the ��investigation ot the case by the commissioner appointed by this province,  E. V. Bodwell, K". C, was undertaken, several new problemns have  arisen with regard to the settlement of this matter and Sir Richard  McBride, who has been in constant  communication with Premier Borden, has decided to take these new  questions up directly at,Ottawa.  Several other matters of urgent  public importance have also arisen  within the last few days and it is in  order to obtain a settelement of these  that the premier has decided to  make a trip to the capital at this  time. He will leave immediately  after the rising of the legislature  and he expects to be absent from  Victoria for about three weeks.  C.P.R. Extension Plans  Isn't it the Truth?  Canadian Pacific Railway extension plans this year will involve an  expenditure of about eighty-five  million dollars. The large amount  quoted, however, is said to be  spread over a' number of years, and  double tracking apd other parts of  tbe programme will be proceeded  with conservatively as the needs  arise.  At the present time there are 133  miles of double-track under way between Sudbury and Port Arthur, on  the Lake Superior division which  alone will cost $6,000,000; 178 miles  double-track between Brandon and  Calgary, to cost $5,000,000; 139  miles between Revelstorke and Vancouver, to cost $7,000,000.  In the more difficult sections along  the Thompson and Fraser rivers it  is double-tracking until the 'Kettle  Valley line is ready, which will be  next year, so that there will be an  alternative route betvyeen Medicine  Hat and Vancouver, via. the Crow's  Nest Pass.  ���,>>ij;J:v/-.x: ^ :,;���;;,.;'������ "i^Wji^ ���-':> fo ,��____���:������-���'  -'La I ��� V^E' (38?

'  Clyde Savage, employed at the  Brooklyn hotel, is of an inventive  turn of mind, and for the past year  or more has been working on a hydro-  monoplane, which will both fly in the  air and float on the water. The  model is built'on the scale of one inch  to the foot. The planes from tip to  tip measure 32 inches, and the model  is 22 inches long. Practically all of  the weight lies below the planes.  Every part, even to the wheels, have  been made by hand. In time Mr.  Savage intends building a full sized  machine, to be known as the "Savage  Monoplane," which will be capable of  carrying two passengers.  ������  ��� ��������������.  Sir.    Wm.

Victoria,    B.C.���Feb.     25.���The  British    Columbia   legislature   this  evening adopted the radium  bill on  second reading, and as  the   opposition   approved   of the   measure 'its  passage   is   assured.      Briefly   the  measure provides for the provincial  government sharing in any discovery  of radium in British Columbia to the  extent of 50 per cent; it rewards the  discoverer $5000 upon proof of discovery, and   it  amends  the mining  act  so   that   radium   will   not   be  classed with other minerals.  Sir Richard McBride, the premier,  stated that  he   had   no   doubt that  there   were   valuable   deposits    of  pitchblende in  the province      ','The I  national   governments   at  and  Washington," he   said,   "have  been interested in this question, and  we wish  to  fall   into   line   with the  legislative measures now* under consideration in "Canada and the United  States, so   far   as   the discovery of  radium is concerned."  '���  W. G.   McGregor,   left  wing of  the Grand   Forks  champions,   who  was arrested last Friday night after  the   Grand    Forks-Phoenix     match  for having committed an assault on  Sayers of the Phoenix team . by  hitting  him   over   the head   with   his  hockey stick, was giyen   a  hearing  Monday night before Police   Magistrate Mulligan.     McGregor pleaded  guilty after hearing the charge, and  the   magistrate   imposed   a  fine of  $20  and costs   or     30 days in the  Nelson jail.     The fine was paid.  Sayers was so badly injured   that  it was    recessary    for   him   to   be  assisted  from   the   ice   and    placed  | under the care of a physican.    After  awa   the game a warrant was   issued  for  the arrest of his assailant,   who was  placed under a $100 bond to ^appear  here Monday night.  N. L.
