The  earthquake has wrecked city after city,  obliterating smaller towns and villages  without number.  - ��� "  Then a tidal wave swept along trie  Strait of Messina and -added to the  horror, drowning the people in their  helplessness and panic.

Mayor C.. Herbert Moore said that  the mines in , Washington and < else.  where in'the Northwest owned, by the  Northern Pacific and Great Northern  railroads'db not produce much more  than to supply 'their own needs,  adding: ^   ,  "Accordingly foV domestic and manufacturing purposes we get our supply  from Wyoming and British Columbia.  British Columbia \s near us and 'the  growth, and development of. its coal  mines would tend,to-our commercial  development and would build a new  mining section in which we would share  the profits. I refer to the mines near  Fernie and elsewhere to' the north of  Montana and Idaho, t  The tariff revision committee is now  considering this problem; and that if  the reduced,tariff is adopted it will be  in the nature" of a_' reciprocal measure  with Canada.' -Ontario gets most of  its coal' from Pennsylvania and Ohio  and the Canadian duty is about the  same as ours. Irf New England much  of the coal comes from New Brunswick.  It seems to me the change would  work to the benefit of: both countries."

DOMBJINON COPPER  STOCKHOLDERS  Should ' Pay - Assessment  in  New Company if Permitted  The copper critic of the Boston  Commercial takes the view expressed  in the Pioneer last week that' there is  little likelihood/of shareholders of  Dominion Copper' having an'oppor  tunity of participating in the reorganization of the company, unless possibly  thtough an assessment. The Commercial says:   ,    ' ,  "We still believe; that the mining  properties of the  Dominion. Copper  company are valuable. , We understand  that the best, bid which the company  has had since it got into financial difficulties was $300,000 for'one of" its  mines. v Th�� company's difficulties were  the result of mistakes of management.  The company largely increased its pro;  duction of copper anticipating a/continuance of the 35-cent copper market  just before the disastrous slump of last  year.    When the metal declined it had  a large amount of copper on hand, and  it had expended the bulk of its surplus  in the purchase of new properties, smelter enlargement and development work,  it was unable to continue the payment  of interest on its $800,000 of bonded  indebtedness.    In   the reorganization  which is contemplated the prospect is  that   stockholders   will   ,fare   poorly.  However, we would not advise stockholders to part with their holdings at  present prices, but think they should  hold on, and if they have an opportunity to go into a new company by  paying an assessment  they should do  so."

PHOENIX CAPTURES  FIRST HOCKEY GAME  Defeats Grand Forks 4-2 Wednesday Evening.  Phoenix hockey team have- started  after the Boundary league trophy ~hke  real champions. Wednesday evening  they journeyed to Grand Forks and  defeated the sejtette of that city 4  goals to 2 in opening match of the  league.  The game was an exhibition-of real  hockey, and indicates ..that enthusiasts  in the Boundary of hockey will witness  some good games befote'the"-'season ia  over.  The Grand Forks team are a' husky  and likely-looking aggregation,' and  have an advantage of perhaps an average of fifteen pounds per man in weight,  bur the local rabbits had the speed and  played, the aggressive- game^. ~. At. half-  time the score was 1-0 in favor of  Phoenix. The following was the local  line up: Goal, S. Lackey; point, A. McDonald^ cover point, J. Simms;, rover,  J. R. Grant; righf wingrR.

The engine of a C.P.R. freight train  jumped the track at the bridge near  Fife, last Saturday afternoon. Both  the engineer and fireman jumped, the  latter, being severely bruised. A wrecking crew, numbering about 70 men,  were engaged on Wednesday getting  the engine back to the track. The  balance of the train remained on the  track.  Interesting ' information   has   been'  given out in connection with the progress of the development work going  on   at   the   Phoenix   Amalgamated,  owned by-the Consolidated Mining  and Smelting company.   Some weeks  ago we   reported the disclosing," by'  development  work,''of an ore   body  some 50 feet in  thickness,   bein# exposed in a horizontal crosscut of some  75 feet.    Continuing along   the  lead  and further opening;up the property a  much  better grade ^of ore has been  located   than   was  'thought   possible'  under known  conditions, and by the  time shipping facilities are  secured at  the mine there will  be a very large ���'  body of ore to work on.     It  is quite  probable the ore will'still  further increase in values and generally be of a  higher grade than was looked for.  Only some 345 tons of test ore have ..  thus far been shipped from the prop- >  erty, but arrangements have been made  to begin the construction of shipping -  facilities early in the spring,~which will -  include a tramway and spur to'cbnnect  with the C.P.R. main line above Hartford Junction.  *rf? 1,  $���  ?-&  HANDSOME NEW YEARS GIFT  D.

The idea is not new, and  although it has many good points, it  has not proved particularly successful  where tried. At Kingston (Ont.) the  experiment of having aldermen elected  for three years is considered a failure.  The legislature.will be asked to revoke  the special act so that that city may  return to the system of annual elections.  It was found that the aldermen elected  for three years are indifferent and  neglect their duties.  THE DEGREES OF  MASONIC ORDER  Names, Order of Rotation and  Interesting  Particulars.      !  The explanation of the degrees in  Masonry is frequently asked. The  following, taken from tne Masonic  Observer, answers the question clearly.  VVe, as undoubtedly  many others,  are frequently called upon by intending  petitioners for the degrees of Masonry  for information concerning them, their  names, order of rotalion, cost, etc.    In  order to make the matter more easily  understood, we will say that the Masonic institution is built very much after  the following plan.    For the purpose  of illustration, we will take the letter  <'Y,"    The main perpendicular stroke  of which embraces all  that   there  is,  or ever was, of Ancient Craft Masonry,  to-wit:    The first three degrees ot  the  Symbolic,   or  blue lodge,   which  are  known as the������  1. Entered apprentice.  2. Fellowcraft.  3. Master Mason.  These three degrees are the foundation upon which the great Masonic  edifice is erected. After receiving them  a person is just as 'high up" in Ma-  sonry as he ever can become���he i��  a ,M aster Mason.  But we are taught that Masonry is  a progiessive science, and Masons are  constant seekers after light.   .In order!  8. Intendant of the Building.  9. Elu ofthe Nine.  10. Elu of tho Kitteon.  11. Elu ofthe Twelve.  12. Master Architect.  ,3. Royal Ar.h of Solomon.  14   Perfect Elu.  Providing the seeker's constitution  is rugged enough-to have withstood the  foregoing, he then petitions for membership in a chapter Rose Crox, which  confeis.the following degrees:  15. Knight of the East.  16. Prince of Jerusalem.  17. Knight of the East and West.  :8. Knight of Rose Croix.  The "next step is the Council ol  Kadosh. which eludicates the following  degrees:  19   Pontiff.  20. Master of the Symbolic Lodge.  21. Noachiteor Prussian .Knight.  22.

'   In the last eight years 2,000 prisoners  have been released on parole in  Cm  ada.   sThat this ..system of partial par  don  is  giving  good results is attested by  the fact  that   1,100  of those  benefiting by the exercise of clemency  became law abiding citizens and earned  their  full   liberty.    Over   700 of the  others are repotting under the  parole  system, while less than 2   per cent of  the entire number resumed their evil  ways.  I*,   1 W'-i     ~  ei  -'l&Wfrx,:  Butter's Philosophy.���LV.  Here's a Happy New Year. Happiness is our duty to our Creator; if we  are not happy in this wonderful and  beautiful world, with the flowers, and  birds, and sunshine, and eyesight, we  are not paying a very nice compliment  to our maker. If you gave a feast,  with music, flowers, and everything, it  wouldn't be very nice of your guests  to just show that they were unhappy.  Happiness is important, it makes  health. Boys, you can't be happy if  you kick a dog, or rob a bird's nest, or  hurt somebody's feelings, because il  >ou are mean you aie a coward. It  take a good boy to be brave and a  brave doy to be good. The kindest  boy is the bravest boy, and happiest.  When you tell a business story wilh  cold type, see that the work is done in  an artistic way, so that fit will attract  attention, and be convincing.  Lliai uiv-j   "���j  inc UC^  they seek two ways have been prepared j obtain  for them, either of which, or both, if ���  they  so" desire,   may  be   taken,  viz:  The York Rite or the Scottish Rite.  Should the  candidate in  quest of  Masonic light elect to go to the York  Rite he would climb upward by one, of  the Forks of the Y.    Should he pre-  fer the Scottish Rite route, he would  pursue his journey by the other foik  of the Y.    In either case he must first  be a  Master   Mason  or  his  petition  cannot be received.    Both ways  are  good���neither better than the other���  land after-completing the journey  by  ' either route he  arrives  at  the  same  level, viz.; that of the 32 degree S.R.,  or that of a Knight Templar York Rite,  and is then eligible to apply for membership in the &reat social club, known as  the Ancient Arabic Order Nobles of  Mystic fShrine, whose membership is  composed exclusively of K.T.'s or 32  degree   Scottish   Rite  Masons.    But  right here we dtsire to be distinctly  understood that the shrine is not Masonry at all, neither is it in any manner  connected with the Masonic institution,  nor recognized by any Grand Lodge.  It is purely and simply a social organization, one( of whose essential .qualifications for membership is all that its  votaries be either Knights Templar or  32 degree Scottish Rite Masons.  Supposing the candidate selects the  York Rue, he would first petition a  ^Chapter of Royal Arch Masons to  receive the Capitular Degrees, which  .consist of���  4. Mark Master.  5. Past Master.  6. Most Excellent Master.  7. .Royal Arch Mason.  He would then be eligible to apply to  a council of Royal and Select Masters  -for the Cryptic degrees, and if accepted,  would receive the following degrees:  8. Royal Master.  9. Select Master.  Should he then desire to reach, the  ,apex of American Masonry, and wear  a belt and sword with a large white  ostrich feather, he would apply for  membership in a Commandry of  Knights Templar, where he would  receive the following orders:  10. Red Cross Knight.  11. Knight Templar.  12. Knight of Malta.  He has now reached the end of his  Mason.c journey ^y the way of York  or .American Rite. Should he desire  to ascend the other Fork of the Y, i.e.,   the Scottish Rite he may be enabled  to do so by applying for membership  in a Lodge of Perfection, where the  following degrees are conferred:  Secret Master.

It, unlike  the others, cannot  be obtained  upon  application and payment of a fee   The  33 degree  is  conferred upon a very  limited  number, and ,then only as a  special mark of appreciation of meritorious service in the Masonic vine  yard, and the aspitant for this distinguished  honor   must. first  be recommended for the distinction.  To the foregoing we may add, as a  bit of gratuitous advice to prospective  petitioners, and to Master Masons who  contemplate climbing upward and onward upon -"the ladder which leads to  fame in  our  mystic circles":    Never  judge a man's ability or, worth   by  the  number of degrees  he .has received;  never . form  an  estimate  of a man's  character from the number or size of  the badges and jewels  with   which he  may see fit to adorn  his   person, and  always remember thatthe three degrees  first mentioned in this article  coupled  with a firm and steadfast determination  to live up to  the lessons received in  'hem, and practice  them   upon .every  possible occasion in all yowr dealings  with mankind, are  absolutely  all .that  are required  to make a man a full-  fledged Master Mason  in every sense  of the term.

In answer to the question as to what  effect the decline in the pi ice of aluminum is going to have on the use of  this metal for electrical purposes, a  prominent manufacturer of insulated  wires and cables, writes the American  Metal Market of New York as follows:  "Regarding the use of aluminum in  place of copper for electrical purposes  all that we know about this subject is  in regard to wire, as we are manufacturers of insulated wires and cable.  In order to get an equivalent conductivity in a given size of conductor for  aluminum in place of copper it has to  be atout 60 per cent larger and this  is probably a 60 per cent disadvantage  in the aluminum at the same price fur  the  cost  of the conductor.  "Bare aluminum conductors have  been used on poles and especially for  high   voltage   transmission,   but   the  minum is liable to replace copper in  any considerable amount."   '  An Optimistic View.  A leading Boston copper merchan'  who handles r 50,000,000 pounds of  copper annually says:  "I am extremely confident that w  are running into a period of tremendou  consumption of copper. It is difn  cult to'get any enthusiasm in th  metal market where the consumers ar  pursuing the present hand-to mouth  policy, but it should not be forgottc  that there is considerable copper chan(  ing hands every day, and 'there is ;  fairly good demand for the metal botl  in this country and abroad.  "I have no fear of the production of  copper over-taking consumption, except  temporarily. Copper cannot be bought  for  13^ cents, as has been reported,  Backache, -Headache  lirsternal Pains.  H.

Food is to the human body what fuel  Is to a furnace. Without the aid of food  the body starves and dies, just as a  furnace fire dies, grows cold, when not  mpjjlied with fuel. Undigested food  decays. So long as it lies in the stomach  it is fermenting���giving off noxious  gases and acid fluids that poison the  blood and flow with it all through tha  system.  Yoti cannot be healthy, in such a  condition. You must surely lack tho  snap, the energy of mind and muscle,  of brain and body, -which are necessary  to the enjoyment of life's good things-  its work and play; There is no enjoyment ior the man or woman whoa*  stomach is out of order.  When 3*our food fails to supply  nourishment through rich red blood.  you are being starved in.muscle and  nerve���starved as truly as the man who  hjs nothing to eat���only yours is slow  starvation.
