The  club started in Revelstoke app< ars  to be the real thing-, and last week  some tolerably good jumps wert- recorded in the railroad town. Nels  Nelson is said to have made one or  two clean ninety five feet jumps,  while Sigurd Halvorson negotiated  space for a distance of 100 feet, but  according to accounts failed to land  in the perpendicular. The sport appears to have taken the local fancy,  for, during the first trials there were  upwards of fifty skiers out, besides  a large number of interested spectators.

The  result as far as the local team was  concerned, could never be described  as encouraging, for the Grand Forks  septet left the arena for the second  time victorious with a' score of 7>1  in their favor. .'Phoenix appeared  not to have a look-in, although they  worked bard to get their combination  going," and; were beaten fairly and  squarely by the superior tactics*of  their opponents.

Some of the properties have been  opened up in a small way by prospectors with wonderful showings for  the amount of work done.  Writing to the Canadian Mining  Journal, towards the end of the past  year, E. Jacobs says: "It is im-  possible to make a rough estimate  of the value of the mineral production of British Columbia during  1914. With only very incomplete  informatiou as a* guide, it seems  probable that a total value of between $25,000,000 and $26,000,000  may be estimated. It may be the  latter amount will be slightly exceeded, but at this writing it seems  better to place the total at somewhere about $25,900,000.    Of  this  Rescue Station at Granby  Dudley Michel of the Provincial  Department of. Mines, arrived in  town during the week, andjs supervising the establishment of a rescue  station at the Granby mine. The  appliances are already on hand, and  consists.of three smoke helmets, a  Draeger pulmotor, and three oxygen  cylinder, each' with a capacity of 150  cubic feet. The first-aid to the injured class, which was well under  weigh, prior to the shutdown of the  mine, is to be recommenced, and the  lectures and demonstrations will  take place on " Friday evenings at  eight o'clock; in the Miners' Union  hall, under the-supervision of Dr.  W.

Since  returning from, my recent   visit  east  1 learned that some such rumor had  been published- in   a   Seattle paper,  but I paid no   attention   to   it  other  than as a  phase of   newspaper sensationalism.     It never   occurred   to  me that in British   Columbia, where  Mr.   Macrae   was   well   known, any  heed,would be   paid   to it.     It  is a  painful subject   for   me   to   discuss,  but injustice to the memory  of one  who never   betrayed a  trust or was  disloyal to his  country   in   thought,  word. or.   deed, I   must   state   most  emphatically that the rumor is without the slightest possible foundation.  The circulation of such   stories, wilfully or otherwise, is-a cruel   reflec-:  tion   upon   my   late   secretary,   and  painful in the   extreme   to   relatives  and friends.     Mr. Macrae   had been  suffering for   many   months   with  a  nervous  ailment, and   his   untimely  death cannot in the slightest degree  be regarded  as   a   reflection   in any  way upon his honor as  a   man or a  citizen."  any great' growth  of home consumption of copper products, however; but it is ^due rather  to a tremendously increased demand  from abroad for brass rods, tubes,  castings,' copper sheets and other  manufactures.

For the Ross-  land Trophy, J. A. Morrin beat Tyson of Trail with a showing of 16-8,  and Geo. Evans of Phoenix beat  Williamson of Trail by 16 to 3. In  the Trail Trophy competition J. A.

The Duke of  Orleans, the Bourbon  pretender   to   the   throne     of  France, has  found that the British J  government has an acute memory.  Exiled   by   law  from   treading   the  soil of France, he has  appealed  to  King George to allow  him to serve  with our army at the front, but naturally, as the duke was the ringleader  of the campaign of calumny against  Queen  Victoria   during    the   Boer  war, his  request  has  been.politely  turned down.     He  now makes an.  other  appeal   to   the   president   of  France   to   suspend the  law which  keeps him  out  of France, and per.  mit. him   to   take  his  place  in the  army of that  country, but  it'is extremely doubtful   if the  request will  have .any  more  success   than   did  his first appeal.      It is generally believed, that the  pretender made  a  'full apology  to' the late- King Ed.  ward.for his .part in t{ie shameless  'attack on the latter's mother, but it  is significant that.he has never been  counted   among  any   British   royal  gatherings since the  South African  war.  The British have gained their sue  -cesses almost , entirely  by gunfire,  the Germans by mines and submar-l  ines.     The    results    thus   far   dot  The   metric   system   of   weights  and measures will become the standard for drug stores, the  trade and  physicians in all parts  of the British  Empire   with   the  new year,  when  the new British pharmacopoeia goes  into   effect.       The  old   system   of  weights and  measures is discarded.  During  the first  four  months of  the  war  54   foreign-going   British  ships,   valued.at  eleven  and  a half  million dollars, with a cargo worth  $18,000,000, were  captured or destroy i d  by the, enemy. _ These are  the  offici.il   figures   of the   London  and Liverpool   war  risks   insurance  association.

Vice-Admiral Sir George Nares  died in London on January 15th.  He is known to "fame as the commander of the Challenger, which  for seven years cruised the seas  making explorations of the ocean  depths.

The writer proceeds sarcastically  to describe the blush of moral indig-  ation spreading over the Puritanical  face of the United States, which  still maintains troops at Vera Cruz,  where she has less business to be  than Germnany has in Belgium.

Give the experiment a triil  mi the cheapest and most satisf; ctory advertising mart in the Boundary,  T. A. Rickard,an English mining  engineer, recently contributed a  paper entitled "Persistence of Ore  in Depth" to the Institution of Mining- and Metallurgy. A synopsis of  his concluding- chapter says:  ���'After   reviewing   the    evidence  available on the  subject   it  appears  to the author that continuity of ore  is    exceptional,'  even    for   limited  depths; that the   idea  of unlimited  continuity is untenable in the face of  the brutal facts; in effect, he asserts,  non-persistence is   normal.      Some  there   are  doubtless  to   whom   my  views���or those that I desire to emphasize���may   seem   destructive, of  that hopefulness on which mining is  nourished.    All that I ask   is for a  transfer of that  hopeful   spirit from  directions in which it is likely to be  wasted to others in which it may become   justified.     If  the   money   so  often    squandered   on   impoverised  mines in the vein expectation of betterment   in  depth,  or  of indefinite  persistence, were diverted to lateral  exploration in localities highly   mineralized,    or   spent   in    systematic  trenching in new regions, we should,  I believe, give   to   such  capital the  fruitfulness that  is  the  economist's  constant  aim. -   In   short, we  must  employ the crosscut   more, and  the  shaft less, except,   of course, where  the ore body can  be   kept   in   view.  Incidentally,   I  desire   to   commend  the increasing use   of the   diamond  drill as a means of ascertaining the  position of a   lode   and   its general  character in depth or  at  a distance  from existing workings.     While the  drill   is   not   a   safe .instrument  for  sampling a lode, it provides a highly  economic means   of  obtaining .that  preliminary   information   on    which  wise   development   depends.     The  first rule in mining  is   to   find   ore;  the second is  to   follow   it.     If  the  crust of the   earth   in   a   productive  mining region were suddenly rendered  transparent   to   the   radio-active  vision of a transcendal geologist, he  would see, I feel   assured, many an  orebody that has been missed in the  -hurry1 to   follow   the   lure   of deep  sinking.    The fallacy of enrichment  in depth has been the cause of much  useless expenditure in deep exploration; the idea of persistence has led  to the neglect of lateral development  If I assert thatorebodies  usually    become    impoverished    in  depth and  finally   become   unprofitable, it is not to imply that prospect  ing in depth- is universally  undesirable.     But I do mean that it is unlikely that  any  given   orebody will  persist indefinitely, and that evidence  of  eventual   impoverishment   vertically must be faced   in  a scientific  spirit.    The   corollary   is  not   that  deeper search must   be, abandoned  hastily, especially in mines that are  relatively shallow, butthat in many  cases .  lateral    exploration,    while  cheaper, is also likely to prove more  successful than further sinking.   My  own experience has been that  mine  owners often squander their fuuds in  expensive- shaft  sinking   when  the  chances   of  finding   ore   by   cross-  cutting   or   diamond-drilling   have  been.scarcely   tested.     I   take issue  with Dr. McLaren when he suggests  that the effort to smash a fallacious  generalization is likely to  prove exceedingly harmful both to the   mining-engineering  profession   and   to  mining    capital.      The    profession  must recognize facts if it is to make  a scientific use of current knowledge  in the exploitation  of ore  deposits.  Capital is not going to gain   legitimately by spending, money   on   forlorn hopes in depth, while neglecting  chances    in    the   shallow   zone   of  A Story of General French  The following story of*General  French was related recently in a  London club: "One night at dinner  some officers were discussing rifle  shooting. The colonel, as he then  was, joined in and said in his calm  quiet way: "I'll bet anyone here  that 1 can fire ten shots at five hundred yards and call each shot correctly without waiting for the marker's signal. I'll stake a box of  cigars on it." The offer was accepted by the senior major of the regiment, and the next morning the  whole of the officers were at the  shooting range to see the trial, . Sir  John fired." "Miss," he announced.  He fired again. "Miss," he repeated. A third shot. "Miss!" "Hold  on there," protested the major.  "What are you doing? "You are  not firing at the target at all." But  French finished his' task. "Missl"  "Miss!" "Miss!" "Of course I  wasn't shooting at the target," he  said. "I was shooting for those  cigars." - ' '���  Hotel Brooklyn  The Only First-Class and Up-To-t>ate  Hotel in Phoenix. New from cellar  to roof.

Gentlemen:  I beg to report that I have audited the books and examined the vouchers  of the city for the past year, and find same correct and well kept.  I have credited the School Board with their annual deficit, but as it is  larger than usual this year, $3,112.62, I would be glad if you would pass a motion  in co.incil that such deficit should be written ovf.  I;vseems that you are alloving the School Board altogether too much  freedom in overrunning their estimate. You allowed an estimate of $6270.00  wher the r estimates wer�� placed before you, and then you allowed them to run  their expenditures over $7,000.  I would suggest that you do not overlook your sinking fund this year as  your debentures have only five-more year i to ran.  ' Yc jrs respectfully,  ISAAC CRAWFORD, Auditor.
