25th, providing- snow conditions are
favorable. It will be held on Montezuma hill if fovorable, otherwise it
will take place on Pike's Peak, about
five minutes walk from the C. P. R.
depot. They also intend to hold a
seven mile race on the same course

G%me One of the Roughest,on Record—Third Period
a Tie—Teams Play Extra Ten Minutes for a
Decision—Phoenix .Scores Two Goals.
I. O. O. F. Installation
Hockey enthusiasts, and everybody in Phoenix is a hockey enthusiast, were certainly given their money's worth at the rink last Monday
night when the Greenwood and Phoenix teams played the first league
game of the season in tbe Boundary. If the balance of the league
games are as strenuous, it will be lucky if some of the players do not
land up. either in the hospital or the morgue. That some members of
the Greenwood team resorted to slaughter-house tactics cannot be de-
.nied. Trehern's assault on Bernie Morris in the second period showed
all the earmarks of being premeditated and deliberate. Trehern is a
hockey player hard to beat, but he evidently lost his head in his effort to
get the better of Morris. Failing to outpoint him in skill, he struck
him over the head with his sticky cutting a'gash that required two
stitches. Morris, of course, did the natural thing. He struck back,
the two clinched and fell on the ice, but were soon pulled apart. There
were other rough plays, and several of the Phoenix players can show
black and blue marks to testify to it."
At the end of the third period the game was a tie—three to three.
Then in the ten minute play which followed Phoenix scored two goals,
making the game five to three in favor of Phoenix.
In the first period Bassett, Benson atfd Davidson scored for Phoenix,
and Smith scored for Greenwood. In the second period neither team
scored/ The playing was both hard-and rough, and it was during this
that Treheren and Morris mixed. In the third period Lynn and Trehern scojed for Greenwood, making the game a tie. In the overtime
period the two goals were scored for Phoenix by O'Connell and Benson.
The last ten minutes of the game were exciting ones. With an even
score to start with, both teams worked like trojans for victory, but the
Phoenix boys seemed to be in the better condition and had little difficulty
in putting- it over theiropponents.   -
Sayers and Howey, who played spare for Phoenix, gave a good
account of themselves while on the ice.
The unexelled goal tending of Mitchell and the whirlwind and systematic work of the rest of the players were the prime factors in the victory
for Phoenix. Every' man on the home team played a good game, and
it would be _.unfair to specialize. But it must also be -admitted that
Greenwood has a strong team this year. Lynn, Trehern, Neil and
Smith are fast and hard players, while Clarke, the goal tender, is on the
job every minute of the game.
Thursday^ the new officers of
Snowshoe Lodge No. 46, I. O. O.
F., were* installed by J. F. Mc-
Dougall, grand- chaplain of the
grand lodge of B. C. Following

Hotel Changes Hands
The Central hotel, one of the oldest hotels in the city, closed Thursday night as a licenced house.
Under the new Provincial regulations the house did not come up to
the requirements of law. A. O.
Johnson, the proprietor, has taken
ovei the Koob Hill hotel, formerly
conducted by Chas. Hagan. Mr.
Johnson has splendid business ability
and is a generous and public spirited citizen. The Knob Hill hotel
under his management will be conducted upon first class lines.
Balcony in Skating Rink
It has been found necessary to
provide more accommodation for
the people who attend the hockey
matches at the skating rink. A
balcony 150 feet in length  is   being
Again Mayor Matheson and the
board of alderman of Phoenix have
been elected by acclamation to succeed themselves. The only change
"from last year is that D. J. McDonald was elected to fill the vacancy
caused by James Marshall leaving
the city. Mr. McDonald is a heavy
property owner and an old resident
of Phoenix. For several years he
has conducted the Phoenix Livery
stable. He will prove a very tap-
able man for the position to which
he has been elected. J. W. Hannam
was elected to succeed himself as
school trustee.
The Orchestra Dance
The dance given by the Miners'
Union Opera house orchestra Monday night was a little late in starting, owing to the hockey match - on
the same evening, but when the
crowd did get there they certainly
made good use of their time until
the early hours of the morning.
The music supplied by the orchestra
was enjoyed throughly, and the
dance was in every way a pronounced success.
Greenwood Carnival Postponed
On account of the extremely mild
weather the management of the
Greenwood carnival found it necessary to postpone the affair untit- a
latter date.

Greenwood has fyled a protest on the grounds that "during the
first period the referee let his bell fall, and the Greenwood players, thinking that it was for an off side, stopped playing and then Phoen.x scored.
In the last period Greenwood scored twice, and if the goal had not been
counted in the first period, Greenwood would have won."
True, the bell fell on the ice during the first period, but Rochon, the
referee, contends it was knocked out of his hand, and at the time decided
that tbVgoal scored by Davidson for Phoenix counted.

from near the old Sovereign ground.
Some important developments are
expected in relation to the
mining situation in the vicinity of
Ashnola and Copper mountain. A
smelter is probably the question
to be settled in February.

Assays average $150 to the ton.
Men are working day and night
at the Standard mine at Silverton in
an effort to get under way 2,500
tons of zinc ore which is being shipped to Argentine, Kan., for treatment. The shipments are being
rushed as the ore is piled up in the
open air and the company desires to
move it before the frost sets in
The ore was piled to await the

reduction in duty was made, which

Doiis Blake, who has recently  come to the front as a writer, says  that a woman who fails it} her own  home hasn't the stamina nor the  tact to succeed in the world.  Ore   reserves   at   the    Granby's  Hidden   Creek -property   are   estimated at eleven million  tons.    This  is an enormous   tonnage   of ore  to  have blocked out, and assures prosperity   in   the   company's   northern  camp for  years.     With   the   Phoenix   and Hidden   Creek    camps   in  full operation, this year should   witness aJ stupendous   increase in   the  Granby   output.      The   New   York  Minining Age says   it   would   occasion no   surprise     were    Granby's  1914 production   to   approach   50,-  000,000 pounds of copper.  Automobiles ran on the streets of  Phoenix this week' and the school  children played marbles. Al! of  which goes to. prove how delightful our winter climate is.  "The stranger in Phoenix would  no doubt arrive at- the conclusion  that hockey was the city'.-, chief industry, and that the mines were  lun merely as a side line.  , Here is a remark made by a  .street speaker in Seattle ,the other  . day. While standing' on a soap  box he shouted: "All the thieves  in all the penitentiaries have not  stolen as much as one multimillion-  air has done."  The people want to see clean  sport, and it is to be regretted that  any other kind should be indulged  in. Hockey is one of the most interesting of the winter games, and  it requires young men of nerve and  in the best of physical condition to  play it. The players are bound to  get hard knocks and bumps even  when the game is played as it should  be, therefore any unnecessary rough  tactics should not be tolerated for  an instant. Cut the rough stuff out,  by all means, and do not bring  the game down to the level of the  hull fight or the   prize ring.  Phoenix hockey fans are reasonable in their request for the games  to start earlier. ���' Without the people who'attend there would be- no'  hockey, so that their wishes should  be m,et with to as great **n extent  as possible.    - - ,   ,        ^  --r-W  /*; -,_The< German EmperorVis'-; said^ to  Because his wife sent him a  comb and brush as a Christmas  present, a Philadelphia prominent  merchant, is suing for a divorce.

Being  "smart" themselves, they naturally  wish to be seen in the company of a  "smart'' member of the opposite  sex. The "smart" woman,' however, generally frightens her  "smart" lover in the long run. He  argues to���himself: ���-"She dresses  very nicely, but if I marry her there  won't be anything for me to dress  on after her bills and the rent are  paid."  ' The engineering woman is another kind of flattering woman.  But she more often makes a man  than mars him.* Asa rule,'she  links her future with a man of moral  instability, and succeds in making  her husband quite a "shining liffht  among his friends.     This woman is  an excellent \vife7~ "What would  her.husband do without her?" is^the  spendid eulogy of her friends.  But the cheery gul���--he who is  gifited with a large, amount of  sympathy and who is fairly economical���seldom remains unwed. The  average man Js fond of cheerfulness. But he is still more ,fond of  sympathy. He wants a woman to  convince him that the world, if it  uses him hardly, will one day even  up matters by beginning to smile  on him. He wants a woman to  make his troubles her troubles, his  joys her joys, and then his life runs  smoothly.  DR. KELLEY  .

Pelkey's Father Hard Hit  One of the pathetic incidents, of  the battle at San Francisco New  Year's day was the presence at the  ringside, in a box seat well up toward the front, of Andrew Peltier,'  father of the defeated Arthur Pel-  key. *  Peltier had come all the way from  the east to be on hand for   what  he  fondly  expected  would   be  the triumph of his son.     For four  rounds  he took a decided interest in affairs.  Then came  the  change.    The  old  man evidently divined, unoccustom-  ed as he is to the boxing game, that  things   were   not going  well.     His  head dropped, he pulled down   over  his head the wool cap he was  wearing   and   finally   bowed   his   head;  refusing to look at what was   going  on inside  the ropes.      He   couldn't  help hearing the cries of  the   Smith  supporters,      however,    and   every  punch that  was   landed   on   Pelkey  sent a quiver through  Andrew   Peltier.   �����   Copper From Water  /  Hotel Brooklyn  The Only First-CIass and Up-To-Date  Hotel in Phoenix.

From the two working shafts of the  Penn Coppermine, Calaveras county,  California, a total of 30,000 gallons  of water is bailed daily.    This averages   15  lbs,   of copper  per  1,600  gallons.  It is run through 14 boxes,  9 of which are  2 ft. by 3 ft. and five  are 1 ft. by^2 ft. in  section,   having  the common length of  100 feet with  a fall of 6 in. in each length.    These  are filled with all kinds of scrap iron  :ind refuse from can factories on the  coast.    The copper  is   precipitated  on   this  scrap. The   boxes   are  cleaned once a month, the large  scrap being lifted out and the finer  material put through a 16-mesh  screen. The precipitate is dried,  sampled, and--shipped to an eastern  refinery. It averages 70 per cent,  copper, and the monthly yield is  seven tons, all produced at a low  cost.   *.
