The   program  was typical of"the  occasion, Scotch  songs, Scotch dances, Scotch reading, and  not the  least, Scotch custom   and   the   skirl   o'    the   pipes,  which Byron once described,  erone-  ously   of course,   as    "savage   and  shrill.'.'     Thos. Brown made an admirable chairman,   and   opened   the  proceedings with   a few appropriate  words   of  welcome  relative   to  the  occasion which   had   brought   them  together.     Songs, readings bagpipe  selections and   a   sword   dance provided the first part  of the program-  and dancing interspersed with other  songs   followed.       The  accompaniments to the   songs were   played by  Mrs.    D.  J.     McDonald   and   Jas.  Cochrane,   and  the  company   were  indebted for the dance* music to the  former,   while  W.   Smith   was  the  official piper and   led the time-hon.  ored procession around the banquet  tables.      In compliment to the army  at   the  front,   Mrs.   W. - Campbell  sang "Tipperary,"   all the assembly  joining heartily in the chorus.     The  singing of Auld Lang Syne brought  the   happy event to   a   close.    The  following also contributed numbers:  Mrs. R.   Lindsay,   Mrs.   A. Broom-  Beatty's Battleships   _ <5i'  The  battle  cruisers -Lion,  Tiger  and  Princess   Royal,   have   a  combined    armament   of 48    four-inch  guns, shooting, projectiles weighing  35lbs apiece.     The aggregate number of big guns carried  on all three  ships   was  24   13^in.    rifles,   each  piece of ordnance  throwing   a shell  weighing    50Ibs   less    than    three- J  quarters of a ton.     The  combined i  broadside from a single ship weighs!  11,880 poundsj and does not include  tlie metal shot from the small quick-  firers.

The   Tiger   possesses    5000' more  horsepower   than   the   two   former,  but   steams   about' 3yi  knots  less.  In   all   the   British   navy   possesses  ten   such   ships.    The   speed   of   a  dieadnaught    seldom    exceeds    21  knots, so it will be seen that a battle cruiser of the Lion class can accept or   reject   a .challenge to fight  with any class  of ship afloat. ' The  armament,of either monsters  is almost the same.   The above figures  vvere taken   from  Brassey's Annual,  the  foremost   authority   on   marine  architecture in the w*brld.      According to the same authority the German navy, up to last November, did  not possess a single gun more than  twelve -inch  calibre, and   as it takes  about a year to manufacture a complete set of such ordnance, the probability of them increasing the size is  somewhat remote.   To mount larger  guns than those already on a ship is  simply courting disaster.    The largest shell   fi-ed   by the kaiser's navy  does not  exceed 850  pounds,   very  effective    for   destroying   churches  or killing children, but "of little use  in opposing such artillery as that recently manned by Admiral  Beatty's  gallant tars.  fctojrBSR 29  Fast Hockey Contest  - --  The home team went down to defeat before the aggressive tactics of  the Grand Forks visitors on Tuesday  last,  the  score " being  6-3.     From,  first to last  the   contest   was   stubbornly contested.    The  ice   was in  perfect .shape,' and   the   spectators  were treated to some fast  skating,  but neither side can lay any claim to  having played a scientific   combination game.    There were a few penalties, and taking  one  thing   with  another, the play was comparatively  free from rough-bouse tactics.   This  was the fourth game of the   league  series, Grand Forks   winning   three  and Phoenix one.    Clarke, the new  arrival for the -locals, was debarred  from playing, not yet   having qualified.     He was refferee, and Mann of  Grand   Forks "was judge  of   play.  A special  train  accommodated  the  Grand Forks visitors.  Got Second Prize  E.  ENGEN, MAKING HIS CHAMPIONSHIP JUMP ON SKIS  Regret is a terrible weakness.  Speaking at a recruiting meeting  at Northampton, Sir Ryland Dent  Atkins, M. P. for Middleton, said he  had Lord Kitchener's authority for  saying that recruiting was excellent.  Tandem Ski Exhibition  A laudable effort is to be made this_  season by the new officers of the  Phoenix Ski club, to make the-_or-  ganization more representative^ of  the city's population. Ed. Mellrud",  pi evident of the club, points out'  that al present the membership is  solely confined to the Scandinavian  element, and he makes an earned  appeal for others to enroll themselves among the members. He  says that apart from the attraction  of ski-jumping, a knowledge of the  use of skis is an asset not to be  lightly   overlooked  by   residents of  McDonald a couple of horses have  been secured and the exhibition is  announced for 4.30, along a course  from the Brooklyn hotel to the P.  Burns' meat market.  The club intends to hold its annual highly-popular ski tournament  in the near future, which will include  the'usual long-distance race in the  morning and ski-jumping contest  in the afternoon, particulars of  whiciTwIlI be announced later;  On Tuesday, Februar)' 2, the  date of the Women's Patriotic carnival, the members will head a procession on skis, starting from the  C.P.R. station at 7.30, across the  city to the skating rink.     The rout*  | The Phoenix Curling club were  represented at the Nelson Bonspiel  by two rinks, skipped by J. A.  Morrin and O. D. Bush. Contrary  to anticipation, the former's rink  failed to attain anything like the  form their friends expected, but the  latter's aggregation made a fine effort to uphold the honor of the home  pennant.    They   were in   the  three  Special Deer Permits  The Hon. W. J. Bowser, with a  view to relieving any distress among:  poor ranchers and  others  living' in  the  interior,   has, instructed Game  Warden   Williams' to issue special  permits allowing  deer to   be killed  out of season.     Manypermitshave  already been    granted,   and   have  proved of inestimable benefit to the  parties concerned.    Game wardens,  provincial  constables  and ' government agents  are reporting:  on any  ca��es where the issuance of a special  permit is desirable, and proper precautions to prevent abuse are being  taken.      The  great   value   of   the  game department in ridding the forests  of predatory  animals   is seen  today in   the  enormous increase in  the deer and grouse, which provide  a valuable  meat  supply  in  time of  national need.  "Abide With Me"  The landing of the half-frozen  boatload of survivors from the  British battleship Formidable,* at  Brixham, in the south of England,  recalls the interesting fact that it  was the vicar of that little place  who composed the words of the  famous hymn, "Abide with me."

Scattered here  and there throughout the Dominion  we have witnessed  the departure of  isolated   groups   of  both   men   and  women   who   have   voluntarily   forsaken the comfort of home and high  ���position to   take   their  place amidst  the shell-striken and fireswept country   side   of   Northern    FYance  and  German-gutted    Belgium.     Among  the latter must now be included the  name of Dr. W. Morrin, brother  of  John   A.. Morrin   of  this city, who  left for the   front   on January   15th.  The doctor   is   one   of  five, who  in  answer to the speoial   request of the  Imperial   authorities,   for veterinary  surgeons, has   volunteered   his   services.     He was   a resident of Hamilton, Ontario, and held the appointment under   the  government  of inspector at   Fowler's   Packing  plant)  Another similar instance  of patriotic devotion is  that  of E. Hibbert,  well known   in Phoenix as  the general    superintendent    of   the    B.C.  Copper company,   who  recently   resigned   a   highly-lucrative   appointment as manager  of a  mining concern   in   Ontario, to   accept  a commission   in    the    army    now   being  raised by Lord Kitchener.  Wonderful Forethought  It looks as if Jim Hill was putting  one over on us.  Strolling around the  waiting room   this week   the  attention    of  the   Pioneer   reporter   was  arrested      by    a    framed   circular,  the   title   of  which    was    "Resusi-  tation from   Electric Shock."    Embodied    in    the     pamphlet,    which  by the   way   appears   to   be   a  fixture,   are elaborate  instructions  on  how to restore to blessed consciousness the apparently dead.    Thinking  that in   all   probability the work of  equipping ��the   depot   with   electric  light   had   been   proceeding   under  cover    of   secrecy,     he   innocently  made the rounds ofthe station, only  to find   that   he   might  have   saved  himself  the  trouble,    the   building  was as bare  of electric fittings as a  frog is  of' feathers.     The   situation  was   perplexing    enough   until   the  thought   struck   the    reporter   that  perhaps the instructions are only intended    for   the   guidance   of   the  station agent   in   restoring to sensibility any   new   arrivals   that  prove  unable   to   survive   the   intelligence  that the place  they   have arrived at  is the Great  Northern headquarters  in Phoenix.

"For our own sake," said the  speaker, "let there be no political  strife While the war/lasts. Whether  Liberal or Conservative, I think we  should; agree; that -the present government nnist stay in office until  the war is ended. If unhappily, the  war lasts until the term of this government expires, we owe it to ourselves to see that there shall be no  strife or contested elections, but  that this government should be left  so finish its work, and I would say  the same thing of the British government.  "Further, I would say that this  government should stay in power  without question, but not without  criticism. Criticize its course if you  will, but do not try to undermine  its hold on power. It should re-  main'in power for a year after the  war is over:"  Bad For The British  V.  WALSH &HARTMANy Props.

Cantrell, a prominent U.S.  correspondent describes his visit to  a train carrying "French-an'd Britis'h  prisoners:  .The German sergeant and I walked over to the train. I stopped by  the open :doorof a freight car full of  English prisoners and called out:  "Hello, boys!'.* .;^ . ;;"  "Hello, matey!'.'cried one. Then  the others, apparently part of a  London regiment, crowded to the  doors.  "Fei- the love of 'eaven!" ;:*  "'Ave ye got a fag, matey?".  -;/���'���  Fag is the Cockney /for cigarette.  I took my  bag   of tobacco, tied the  cigarette papers   to.it,- and  tossed it  into the car, the   sergeant never doing a   thing   to   stop   me.'    .But the  minute   the   tobacco   went   into   the  car and those poor fellows began to  scramble   for   it,   a   German  sentry  came   running 'up.     He jabbed  his  bayonet in, scattering   the English;1  and   poked   the   tobacco   out.       He  handed it   back   to   me and   said.in  French:  "Nothing for the English! Nothing at all!

A private in one. of the Lancashire regiments, writing home, says  that their trenchestwere quite close  to those of the enemy, and one  night a German entertained the  British by singing "Annie Laurie."  "When he had finished," says  the writer, "he called but with a  most pronounced ' Scottish accent,  'Do you like my singing?' "and  when we replied that we did, he  said if we had any baccy,>it would  be quite-safe if we brought it that  way, so one of our boys took a  chance and went across with some  cigarettes1. The next morning we  stormed and captured the trench,  and among the prisoners was the  singer of the night before, who after  surrendering, startled us all again  by singing 'It's far too early in the  morning to waken me.' So greatly  did his features resemble Harry  Lauder, that many of us were almost ready to swear it was the  great comedian himself.

He says that at the-beginning of the war   there   was  con-  sicl :rab!e pro-German feeling on "the  part of very   many   Scandinavians,  but   that  Germany   with her usual  -tactlessness   soon   destroyed it, and  consolidated public sentimentagainst  her.     In the early days   of the war  there was, he says, a  large  contraband trade done   with   Germany by  all these countries, but that of late it  is a   mere   trickle, the  government  having imposed stiff fines upon two  or three firms found   guilty   of thus  violating neutrality.    Moreover, the  destruction of Belgium has made a  profound impression upon the Scandinavians, and   the   masses  of the  people believe that  in   the event of  Germany triumphing, Norway, Sweden and Denmark would not long be  permitted to continue as independent  nations.  When the war began   Denmark,  with the memory of Schleswig-Hol-  stein fresh in mind, was anti-German,  and pro-British.    Norway, as far as  the masses are concerned, was also  anti-Getman. ' Sweden, facing Russia, for whom she has  a traditional  fear, was inclined toward  Germany  and Sweden, too, is steeped in German culture.    It. is to  be -borne in  mind that for many years past Germany has conducted a  propaganda  in Norway  and  Sweden.    She has  spent mdney in newspapers'and has  issued great quantities of literature  whose tendency was to convince the  educated people of these  countries  that Germany represented  the very  ' flower of civilization.    .���     '  .-<-   As soon-as the'^war broke out the  -flood of pVmRhleCs increased.

These efforts  allotted.'-Arguments were followed  by .threats;1 It' was' broadly hinted  that if Scandinavia remained  out of  the war she would be deprived of independence when Germany conquered.   Here, as elsewhere, the German  displayed    lamentable   tact.    Their  threats and the career of their armies  in Belgium hardened   the   hearts of  the Norwegians, the Danes and "the  ���- ���    H.WL      .   I �� .11.    I .     ���> III!.     I .-. - ��<  -*���   ^r  Swedes,   and   the  masses' of them  came to the silent determination that  if by any means  they   were   shaken  out of their position of neutrality it  would be against Germany that their  guns would be turned. ��� On one Occasion it appeared as though Norway  would be forced into the war.  A vessel named the Brandenburg  ran into a Norwegian port to avoid  capture.    She was supposed   to be  loaded with  coal, but  the  belief is  that she was a mine-layer.   She was  interned, and a few nights afterwards  a German "cruiser, with  lights  out,  and with no pilot, slipped   into  the  port,  and  when   day  dawned   was  discovered berthed beside the Brandenburg.    Her  officer  cheerily announced" that he  had  come  in  for  coal and would depart at once.  The  authorities, however, told him  that  he had violated all the port rules and  must remain interned.    The captain  protested, but just about that  time  Norway's biggest battleship appeared,   and   the  German   commander  submitted.    The 'theory is that he  had come in to secure the  mines on  the Brandenburg/    On  another oc:  casion a  submarine  appeared  at a  big Norwegian harbor and the captain declined the services of a  pilot  to   make   the   dock.     His  obvious  familiarity with   the  passage  gave  the' Norwegians another  chill when  they learned of it. >,  It was the fear of a collision with  Germany that led to the- Scandinavian coalition being .formed. It is  for defensive purposes only, and provides that if one of the nations is  attacked, the "others will support her.  This coalition will have an army of a  million men, and a naval reserve of  850,000, when its full strength is  reached.

" -   *  War Uses of Copper  .  Copper is< very strong- and prices  have continued to advance.   Lake is  14# to 14j�� cents  and   electrolytic  is   14>6" to" 14^   cents   a   pound.  Heavy  sales  of electrolytic  at   14  cents and better are reported.   The  export movement seems to be on the  increase.    It  is  stated  that Japan  has recently  purchased  25,000,000  pounds of copper in this country and  plans   to  take considerable   more.  Presumably this is to be used in the  manufacture of ammunition for Japanese and Russian use.  ..   Investigation   develops   the  fact  that a very large amount of copper  is being consumed and destroyed by  the European   war.     It seems that  every shell   fired   is  encircled  by a  band of copper, the average weight  of which must be   nearly  a  pound,  which conforms to the rifling of the  gun, imparting to the shell the spin  required    for    accuracy.     Reports  from the war  zone   state  that hundreds of thousands of these shells  'are sent on their death dealing mis.  sions  in   a   single-day.     Qf course  cartridge shells generally are made  of brass, which is an alloy of copper  and zinc.    The  military  and   rapid  fire rifles of England and   Germany  ���hoot steel jacketed bullets; but the  jacket ofthe French bullet is copper,  ii being  claimed that  the  medical  experts of France ascertained by experiment   that   a   copper   jacketed  bullet is less  likely  to cause  blood  poisoning than one encased in steel.  The German artillery uses shrapnel  and  other  explosive  shells almost'  exclusively, and the fact that these  must be circled by bands of copper  probably accounts in  no  small degree for the very high price at which  copper has been selling  recently in  that country, where the privilege of  importing   it   is   denied. ��� Boston  Commercial.
