Ski Tournament Tomorrow  The   first   ski    tournament   ever  held in the Boundary   district   takes  place  tomorrow, January 26th,  and  complete  arrangements   have   been  made for the various  events.      The  program commences   with   a  seven  mile ski race, and the recent fall  of  snow promising an interesting time  for all   those   entering.      The   contestants   line  up   at   the   Bank   of  Commerce at 10 o'clock, and will be  started on    their   arduous   trip   by  George Rogers, while   E.   A.

The  competitions- for  the  various   cups,  shields,    medals,  etc., afforded   for  the ski  jumping  events   will   commence at two   o'clock  on   the   new  ski    course   on   Montezuma   niouii  tain.  only the spectators, but Mr. Jeldness  himself. ��� Mr. E. Engen won the  British Columbia open championship  last year.at Ross-land. He arrived  in Spokane last week, saw -the  Spokesman-Reveiw's-'announcement  of the ski tourney at Moran and  stopped over the day for it.  Larsen and Engen gave the spectators a,, remarkable exhibition.  Each leaped over 100 feet during  the afternoon, running separately,  and then, racing together down  the 600 or 700 foot runway, cleared  over 80 feet as a team.

The!'recommendation   in   this  connection is   based largely* upon the  success in  practice 'of the  Winnipeg system,    and ��� the   commission  advises legislation   permitting cities  'of'15,000 population  or over,   by  'bylawto prescribe that their respective   councils   may ��� consist    of    a  'mayor or reeve,' the  usual  number  'of   alderman   or     councillors,   and  from  two  lo   four' controllers,   the  mayor    or    reeve    to    be    elected  annually   and ' the    alderman    and  controllers for two-year terms,   half  'of    the    body    retiring    annually.  Such elected controllers are to  give  their time exclusively to the  service  of the  corporations  electing  them  and to be  adequately remunerated;  the  boards  of* control  constituted  of-the  mayor  or    reeves  and   the  controllers, are  to be   vested   with  full'   appointment'   and     dismissal  power   over  municipal   employees,  including   department   heads,   and  full authority'bver allciviceXecutive  work, subject to council right   by   a  two-thirds majority , re, reject,   vary  or-refer   back)its'; decisions.

Powers would also be possessed by such a commission to  compel  public service  corporations to give  adequate service to the  public  and  at reasonable cost.      Legislation   is  further recommedned  under  which  municipalities may   take  power   to  establish  and  operate   such   public  utilities as telephone systems, motor  bus lines,  etc., within their  respective boundaries.   With the object of  safeguarding   municipal    financing,  the creation is proposed of a municipality    department    under     which  would be   one   or   more   inspectois  whose duty it would be to  see  that  all municipality books  are   properly  kept,    including   school ' accounts,'  that these arc duly audited   at  least  once   annuallv,    and   that    uniform  system is  established   in   municipal  accounting.

Report of Mounted Police  '
- The report of the Royal Northwest Mounted Police for >the year
1912 was tabled in the House last
week by Mr. Borden.
The report shows that on Sept.
30 the strength of the force consisted of 5.4, officers and 800^ noncommissioned officers and constables, an increase of four officers and
twenty men, compared with the
force for the year ending1 Sept. 30,
1911.    .
During the year 13,391 cases
were entered by the police. Of
these 11,435 resulted in convictions;
1307 were dismissed or withdrawn,
and 249 were awaiting trial on
September 30th. Compared with
the previous year these figures
•show an increase of 3973 cases and
an increase of 360 convictions.
The cases include thirty murders,
seventeen' in Alberta, twelve in
Saskatchewan and one in the
Yukon; twenty-one cases of attempted murder, eight in Saskatchewan and thirteen in Alberta,
and eight manslaughter cases, two
in Sask. and six in Alberta. In 21
of these cases convictions were
secured,'and on Sept. 30'seventeen
remained to be tried. The report
sets forth that in proportion to population there is little increase, and
the same result will be obtained if
compared with statistics for twelve
years.   .,, ,
Another interesting comment in
the report is that the names of" the
accused indicate an undue propor
tion of our alien population is re
sponsible for these crimes of vio
lence, and the west is paying- the
penalty for drawing a large immigration from central Europe.
Commissioner Perry refers to
changed conditions in Saskachewan
and Alberta, which in his opinion
calls for a reconsideration of the
agreement between the two provinces and the Dominion. He1
points out that under the agreement of 1906 a force of 250 men'
was to be kept in each province.;
Since that ;:i;tinie, however^ the;
population had enormously ihcreas-j
ed aritl^a-heavy strain was put on
the force in consequence.
The Overseas edition of the London Daily Mail of December 7, contained an article on British Colurii-
bia'fruit WhtcK'aroused considerable
indignant comment throughout the
province. It stated, among other
things, that British Columbia fruit
was packed in barrels and that they
could-not compare*with the best
of Tasmanian and Oregon orchards,
and were fetching much less omthe
market, and ended with* a criticism
of the packing methods in vogue in
this prouince. ' *
However,   the eyes of the writer
were .quickly opened to the, mistakes
jhe had been making,\fonin the next
{issue of the same paper a very complete  and handsome  retraction and
apology     was   offered,   the' writer
.taking every   thing   back, including
the.barrels,   and   said   that, he had
mistaken  some   Nova   Scotia   fruit
for    that   from    British-  Columbia,
which • was, ' he had   since learned,
reaching    the     market   excellently
packed,     in     good   condition    and
equal   in   quality   to   the best   that
could be brought againstvit.
The thanks of the British Columbia fruit growers are due W. E.
Scott, Deputy Minister of Agriculture, who. upon being shown the
article, immediately took the matter
up with Hon. J. H. Turner, agen.t
for the,province in London.

■';>''-'■  Assay Office in B. C.
An order l■in council has been-
passed at Ottawa by which the
charge of one-eighth of one per
cent on the assaying: and, stamping
of gold at the assay office in Van-;
couver has been abolished. There
is now no difference between the
charges made at Vuncouuer, San
Francisco or Ottawa, and it is confidently predicted: that big shippers
of gold from the Yukon, who have
heretofore sent their metal to Ottawa or San Francisco, by registered
mail, will now send it to Vancouver's assay office. This will make
Vancouver a big distributing centre
for the wealth of the mining camps
of the Yakon and British Columbia;
Strange as it may seem, this small
fraction is said to have adversely
affected Vancouver to a quite
unappreciated extent. The largest
share of the gold bullion which has
been pouring into Ottawa has been
from territory which should be
fributary to Vancouver. The only
c|ifference between Ottawa and Vancouver was this one-eighth of one
per cent. Mining and commercial
men have looked forward to this reduction in assay office rates with
threat eagerness has it has been conceded that with this charge removed
allot* the northern gold would be
sent to Vancouver. Merchants realize that the assay   office should he
in going straight to the weak
spot in treating disease ?' • If so,

into vapour in the mouth, and
are breathed down to the throat,
the breathing tubes and lungs
direct. -
Cough mixtures go—not to the lunga
and cheBt at all, bnb to the stomach.
There is absolutely no direot connection
between atonmoh and lungs.
When you hard • bad cold, your
digoation is 'weakened. You loce appetite, and if a man, yonr usual smoke does
not "taste good." In othor words, your
digestive system is lacking tone. All
cough mixtures make this condition
Don't ruin your stomach to heal your
lungs. Take a remedy that goes right te
the spot—Peps.
Surprising how they end coughs,
catarrh, bronohitis, sore-throat, "clergyman's throat," asthma, and all lung
troubles. Contain no poison, and are
best for children.
Dr. Gordon Stables says:—"If you
wish to eace and end a cough, if you
desire to  loosen tickling phlegm,  and
clear the throat and the breathing tubes,
use Eeps.    The pine fumes and balsamic
fumes, so beneficial in throat and lung
trouble, which are liberated when a Pep
is put into tho mouth, also serve another
good purpose.   They are strongly germi-
cidal,and germs of disease in the mouth,
on the palate, in the throat, and in the
breathing tubes, are at onca destroyed
by their action."        .......   t

ON   SHORT  'Phone B32  The Silver Standard  mine is now  working  a  larger  force   than   ever  before.     They have the largest force  of any mime in the district, and they  are also using   the   new   machinery  which was installed the  last   of  the  year;    The first of last   week James  Rutherford, of   Victoria,   a   mining  man   known    throughout   the   province, and so well known in the   old  country,    visited   the    property    in  company with D. McLeod.      Manager Haskins   took   Mr.   Rutherford  over the ground and showed him the  development    work   that   bad   been  done thus far.     A very careful   examination was made,   and   it   proved  entirely favorable to the property.  Though news in mining  circles is  naturally dull at this season   of   the  year there is more or   less  development being   carried   on   throughout  the district.    The feature, however,  of this  week   is   the   resumption   of  development at  Seven Mile   on   the  Salmon    river    where    a     100-foot  tunnel    contract   has    been   let.  to  Richard   Olsen, John  Johnson   and  Ola Johnson,   by  T.   H.   Callaghan  on    behalf of   l.ackie,   Kirkpatrick  and   company,     who    bonded    the  claims from   Dan   Lindeborg.     To  take up the contract,   the   trio, who  in association  with George  Hruggy  own the Wire   Gold   group   on   the  Marmont river, on which   they have  been    working   for   some    months,  have suspended   development   there  for the time  being.

The. portrayal of passing events on  the screen of the local motion picture  show is'proving an additional attraction of the two weekly programs,  while the. other features have been considerably improved and lengthened.  The exhibition is both instructive and  highly amusing.  A. .Shilland, secretary of the Sandon  branch of the Western Federation of  Miners arrived in town on Saturday  and left again for Sandon the follow  ing Monday. Mr. Shilland is one of  the co-owners of the Dunedin mine in  which Jas. Marshall and Thos. Brown  of this city are interested.

Jan.23���In   connection with a press   dispatch   from  Spokane, intimating that the   police  of that city have been asked to keep  an eye   on   a   certain   Mr.   Wilson,  whom   the   police   of  this   province  report to have    been writing threatening iettcrs to   the Prime Minister,'  Sir Richard   McBride,   and   also   in  connection     with     reports    current  during the past   few   days   both   in  Vancouver and here that a series of  such letters   has   recently   been   received   by   the   Prime    Minister   in  which the writers intimate   that   his  life is in danger,   Sir   Richard   says  that during years past he has been almost continually in receipt   of  such  communications,   the   majority   evidently emanating   from    disordered  intellects, and had grown  to accept  them   with   indifference. In   his  public   capacity   he    has   found,   as  doubtless    the    majority    of    other  public   men   do,   that   such    letters  become a feature of his   mail.       He  is  not, however,   seriously   alarmed ���  by the threats aganist his   life   contained not only in   the   letters   from  Spokane   but   in   others    that   have  lately come  to  hand.       "And,"   remarked he, with   a   pleasant   smile,  "1 am not loosing any sleep through  dread of impending assassination."  ft is understood that one  of the  recent   letters received by the premier  contained a  threat   that   the   writer  would shortly cross from the   mainland with a launch, with   the   object  of blowing   up   the   premier's   residence.    Although  this   communication is taken to have emanated with  some crank, it has been   handed   to  the detective department,   by   which  such precautions as may seem necessary in the premises will   be   taken.

ML  LAING, Proprietor  Concentrates  Why Zam - Buk is Best  Cure for Skin Sores  An illustration of the way in which  Zam-Buk cures even the most serious  and chronic cases of ulcers, eruptions  and sores is provided by Mr. R. H.  Barker, of Glencairn, Ont.   He says:  "I would not have believed than any  remedy could cure so quickly, and at  the same time so effectively, as Zam-  Buk cured me.  "My face became covered with a  kind of rash, which itched and irritated.  This rash then turned to sores, which  discharged freely and began to spread.  I first tried one thing and then another,  but nothing seemed to do me any good,  and the eruption got worse and worse,  until my face was just covered with  running sores.  "Apart from the pain (which was  very bad), my face was such a terrible  sight that I was not fit to go out. This  was my state when someone advised  me to try Zam-Buk. I got a supply,  and marvellous as it may sound, within  little under a month, every sore on my  face was healed. I was so amazed that  I have told the facts to several persons,  and I have no objection to your stating  my experience for the benefit of other  sufferers."  Zam-Buk is purely herbal in composition, and is the ideal balm for babies  and young children, for whose tender  skin coarse ointments are so dangerous.  Zam-Buk is a sure cure for cold sores,  chappe'rl hands, frost bite, blood poison,  varicose sores, piles, scalp sores, ring  worm, inflamed patches, babies' eruptions and chapped places, cuts, burns,  bruises and skin injuries generally. All  druggists and stores sell at 50c. per  box, or post free from Zam-Buk Co..  Toronto, upon receipt of price. Refuse  harmful substitutes.

A bill to amend the Immigration  Restriction Act was read a third  time in the Australian House of Representatives.

The campaign of the Housewives'!  league in the United States and the  forcing down of the price of eggs  there has- resulted in large shipments being sent to Canada from  across the bonier.
