The result proved disastrous for the  invaders,   and   the    locals   left    the"  battle    ground    with    a    score   of'  three   goals   to one   in   their favor.  The   following'  Tuesday    saw   the  'Phoenix bunch   lined   up again, this  tirrie on   the enemy's ice, and  after  a strenuous game the smoke eaters  evened up   their  previous defeat by  running up  a   score   of six to their  plucky^opponents.jtriree.'        <,.'��,,   - ��, !   Mrs. Robert Van Looy and her  three children, Martha, Louise and  Edouard, aged respectively 8 years,  5 years and 10 months, were strangled to death last Tuesday morning  in their home at Beaudry street,  Montreal.

To his surprise and delight  the assay showed a value of $40.75,  the forty dollars being'the gold contents, and the fractional sum being  silver. . '���  Of the lead itself little that is definite can be said just how. At the  present writing, the whole face is in  ore���solid quartz, containing considerable iron sulphides, and what  appears to be one of the tellurium  compounds, possibly sylvanite. - As  only the footwall has been exposed,  and that being broken very much,  it is impossible to form any estimate  ofthe direction and extent, of the  new strike, and until the ore body is  penetrated to the distance of say  about four feet beyond the hanging-wall,'nothing- more���' than "guess  work is possible.'  The proved depth ofthe ore which  is nine hundred feet, much deeper  than any other mine i.i the whole  Boundary district, the apparent size  of the ore body, as far as exposed,  and the extraordinary assay value,  which would be satisfactorily rich at  haif the figures given, all combine  to give the discovery an importance,  so that it is difficult not to hazard a  conjecture.   The writer would make  a guess that the quartz in  question  is part of a   blind  lead, probably a  blanket having a dip  of from three  to   five degrees into the mountain  towards   Phoenix,   and   having  no  outcrop   on   the   mountain   facing  Boundary creek...   It is possibfe that  there is  an   outcrop  of one  of the  horns of the lode at the   E.P.U., in  the   valley  of Twin   Creek,   which  takes its rise in Phoenix, and this is  rendered not  improbable, inasmuch  as the values of the two  claims are  almost identical, and both  seem to  contain  tellurides,   which are  very  rare in the district.  C. A. Banks, manager of the  Jewel mine, has been to the scene  several times, and on Thursday last  took three large samples from the  face of the tunnel back to the Jewel  for assay, the result of .which has  not yet been made public.  K.P. joint Installation  ���^      . i* .  The close attachment existing between Phoenix and Greenwood  lodges of the Knights of Pythm,  was again in evidence on Wednesday, when a large number of .he  local knights journeyed to Greenwood and held a joint installation  of the newly-elected officers of both  lodges. S. Storer, D.D. for Greenwood, officiated, and after the con  elusion'of the i serious business .of  theevening, the visitors were royally entertained at supper. The following are fne. officers of Phoenix  lodge for the ensuing term:  J. Butcher, dc.;C. J. Davidson,  V.C.; C.v H. Knight, M.W.; T.  Underwood, K.bf S. & R.; C. Mc  Kay, M; of F.";?J. E.

The team.  j accompanied by about seventy enthusiastic supporters left-by.special  train for the Forks at seven o'clock.  Contrary to last year, when three  teams composed the league, thc  possession of the silverware this  season will be decided by games  between Grand Forks and Phoenix.  Possibly the only outside games  will be those to decide the honors '  for the fine Nelson Daily News and  McBride trophies, all of which have  found an abiding place since last'  year in Grand Forks..  ^Tipperary"  Rebekah Officers  G.   W.'  Rumberger   was   among  the   interested    local   people    who  Visited the  strike, in   the Argo tunnel, at Greenwood, this week. Talking over  the   matter with   a  representative of the   Pioneer, he stated  that he thought the outlook  for the  Argo     company     was   ' unusually  bright.     The  ledge is  fairly  wide,  but    until   the  cross-cut   had   been  completed it would  be folly to even  hazard   a guess   as   to   the actual  width of the ore body.   ' Recent assays    of   average   samples    return  about forty dollars   per ton, practically all of the values being in gold.  According  to   Mr.   Rumberger  the  tunnel is one of the best he had ever  seen, and with very little work hece  and there will easily permit a horse  to be worked.      In the event of any  large quantity of water   being met,  the" drift is  so  constructed   that no  difficulty will be 'experieaced in disposing  of   it.

The  How the order barring thc sing*  ing of "Tipperary" by the boys of  the naval training school at New.,  port, Rhode Island, came to be  given recently is told by a correspondent of the Daily Mail.  Moving pictures showing thc latest war pictures were the weekly at��  traction at the school, and it was  noticed that the allies were lustily  cheered, while the pictures of German troops were received with almost complete silence. This led to  an order to make thc applause  equal between those of the French,  British and German.  This order was not obeyed to the  satisfaction of the executive officer,  and the next order was that no applause would be allowed until thc  end of the reel. Forbidden to applaud when the allies -were thrown  on the screen the lads took to singing "Tipperary," .and then came  the order forcomplete silence.  -  struck is by no means remote.

Mining    |  A HAPPY NEW YEAR  TO EVERYONE  We regret to announce that our 1915  Calendars have been delayed. They  will, however, arrive in the course of  two or three weeks, at which time we  will be glad to give one to every  person.  The property of the Pioneer Placer  Mines, Limited, was sold by Sheriff  Law at the courthouse on Tuesday.  T. E. L. Taylor purchased the  machinery, plant and interest in  three leases for $550 on behalf of  the creditors. "-  T. R. Stockett, local manager of  the Western Fuel company, operating large properties at Nanaimo, is  of the opinion that the outlook for  the coal mining industry on the Island is very encouraging for the  year just opened. During 1914 the  company had a production of over  300,000 tons of coal, all of which  has heen marketed. In view of the  disturbance of the usual markets for  the celebrated Nanaimo product by  the late unfortunate industrial  troubles, he considers this very satisfactory.  "The   satisfactory results   of development in'the lower lever  of the  War   Eagle   strongly   indicate    the  favorable possibilities of still  deeper  development," says R.   H. Stewart,  general manager ofthe Consolidated  Mining and Smelting company, con ���  cerns   the   future   development and  prosperity of the   Rossland   mining  camp.     }t gives rise to considerable  speculation as to the   extent of the  mineral   deposits, and   the   answer,  remembering    that     usually    such  statements   are   founded   on   something more than mere  guess   work,  undoubtedly is that   work   at depth  will continue to produce satisfactory  results,  l-Iard times have brought a reviv.il  In placer mining. Several partits  are at work on the bars of tl e  Fraser and   Thompson   rivers,   arc!  two   itew  strikes   have   been  made  where it is stated good pay has been  obtained.    At Thompson Siding, on  the   north   side   of   the   Thompson  River, a steam   pumping   plant has  been installed to raise water to wash  a bench   where, in   a   clay   deposit,  considerable fine gold has   been obtained. . On the bars of the Columbia    River,    north    of   Revelstoke,  placer   mining   is   going   on,   and  parties are also reported at work on  the Peace and Pine rivers.    A Vancouver   syndicate   is   putting   in    a  small   hydraulic   plant   on    Granite  Creek, in the Similkameen, and has  brought out  nice   samples   of gold  and platinum obtained there.     It is  estimated that through the increased  activity in placer mining in the Similkameen the output of placer gold  from    that   section    this   season   is  about   $20,000���a   considerable increase    on "recent   years.      Gilbert  Blair of  Vancouver,   who   recently  visited that district, brought in with  him a large sample of platinum, obtained   from   Mr.   Cook, and   which  will be  forwarded   to   the  Panama-  Pacific Exposition, to be held at San  Francisco.  n  3=11  -'Phone 56  P.

In   consequence  of his  attitude on  the war  the  German  Alliance has  threatened   to  blacklist   his  paper.  Colonel  Watterson  is one of a  multitude  who  believe that in the  event of Germany being victorious  in    the   present  war,   the   United  States  and Germany  would   surely  be at war as  soon as Germany recovered  herself,  the final   struggle  between militarism and democracy.

On more than one occasion  the assertion  has been  made  that  there  are  millions of Germans  in  the United   States who  do  not forget why they or their fathers left the  fatherland, and the belief has always  been that the great majority of these  have been opposed^to the sentiment  of Ridder and Muensterberg.     Still  it is known that a small majority of  Germans have  plunged their country into'war, and Colonel Watterson  points out the danger that the min-  H.srr   Liebknicht,    the    German  Socialist leader, and the only one in  the reichstag  possessing   courage  enough to  oppose the   Kaisers' war  loan, has written to a London labor  paper calling upon all  the workers  to unite in a ivar against war.   Such  a    move    would   bring   out   many  heroes,    but    judging    from    past  events fie world would look in vain  for martyrs "made in Germany."  ority in the States if they are wicked  enough, may be the cause of every  German-American being subjected  to the'suspicion of harboring un-  American sentiments, and it may  eventually "make of them a class  as distinct from the great body of  American citizenship as the negro  now i��." ���  "From the millionaire in diamonds to the urchin in rags, the  Cranbrook Herald extends a Merry  Christmas."

J. W o o ol vv ard  Victoria      d       Vancouver  615 Forh St. 667 Granville Sr;  SOLE AGENTS  PAR BRITISH CCLUMBU  J  When the great Armada of thirty-one  big ships, carrying thirty-two thousand  of Canada's sons, and escorted by nineteen great British battleships, weighed  anchor and sailed down the St. Lawrence  carrying our men to aid  in fighting the  Empire's battles, few people realized all  it meant to  Canada.    It has  been the  talk of the whole world.   Statesmen and  newspapers the world over commented  on it and cried "Bravo, Canada."    The  illustrated London News said the arrival  was "an advent unparalleled since William the Conqueror."     It was truly a  magnificent spectacle to see this great  fleet sotting sail, a sight never before  seen on Canadian shores.   News of the  departure   was  censored and kept so  secret that few   indeed   were on  the  scene to see the big ships weigh anchor  on   the   Gaspe   coast.    This   spectacle  would have been lost to the people of  Canada had not the Family Herald and  Star   of   Montreal   had their staff of  photographers  there  to   reproduce   it.  Their photos of the great flotilla are the  best piece of photographic work in the  history of the art.   They secured a panoramic view showing miles and miles of  the great troopships and  battleships as  they swung into line on the way to the  Atlantic.    In this  picture  The   Family  Herald and Weekly Star certainly possess a treasure.    It will be the greatest  Canadian Souvenir of  the   War.    It is  13A inches deep by 46 inches in length.  It  is reserved exclusively for Family  Herald and Star subscribers, and all who  become subscribers for  1915.    Tho picture will be sent free to anyone sending  one dollar for a year's  subscription   to  that great paper.    The  demand is already  enormous,   and   every   home   in  Canada will want it.  It will be Canada's  great memento, and years hence, when  neighbors are   gathered   discussing the  great   war, this  picture  will point t'te  story.    It will   have  a  priceless vali j.  It is truly magnificent, and full of p; t-  riotic inspiration.  Those desiring a coi y,  should  order The  Family  Herald  a.id  Weekly Star at once.  SMOKED MEATS, ETC.

German Wireless Mining  Writing to a friend in Rossland,  C. E. Race, formerly editor of the  Rossland Miner, and now a resident  of California, says:  "The Alamo mines, of which I  have written you, have recently been  used by naughty Teutons as a  wireless station to post German  cruisers in the Pacific. Several  months ago, San Diego people of  Dutch descent, leased the property  with option of purchase at a highly  attractive figure. The lesees claim-  id that they had an electric process  -,or locating auriferous ore bodies.  The device, however, developed into nothing more than a first-class  wireless plant, and it was operated  for some time before the fact was  discovered. '  The breaking of neutrality laws  caused the plant to be shut down,  and its operators have been haled  into court and are in a peck of trouble. Of course the owners are  wholly innocent in thc matter; they  simply leased in good faith, ignorant of any double intent, their property and its extensive machinery  equipment. The location and the  plant made for ideal conditions for  the Germans, and they certainly  used it to their great advantage  during its brief operation, as the  battle off the coast 'of Chili has  'plainly demonstrated."

The wonder  is that the Ananias who invented  (the yarn did not add that one of  .the skaters broke through the ice  and was, parboiled before he was  ��� rescued.' ' As a matter of fact, the  temperature ofthe lake never varies  during either, the winter or summer months, and the steam from the  surface of the water can be seen  for miles during .the coldest of  weather,, as many residents of the  Boundary who have benefited - by a  course at the lake can testify.
