The result was a defeat  for Phoenix by a   score  of  two  to  nil.     Great   interest was centred in  the result  and   in   consequence the  huge Rossland  rink whs packed to  overflowing,  among'  the spectators  being about two hundred from local  points, who travelled to the rendezvous on a C.P.R. special.   Our boys  make no  apologies for their defeat,  and according to T. S. Quance, one  of the home line-up, the   best team  won.    They  promised everyone before leaving  that whoever came off  victorious  ihe silverwareWould   be  no gift for the winners, and  that is  exactly.what happened, v-  During the first ten 'minutes of  play there was no result, and then  Sexsmilh for Trail got a chance for  a fairly long shot and took it. No  other goals were registered until the  second period was well under weigh  when McDonough took possession  of the rubber and carried it through  the opposing line-up into the net.  This was the last goal scored in the  game. A couple of representatives  of both sides lined the penalty fence  during the night, but taking it altogether the game was a clean one  throughout. The, following.was the  line-up: Phoenix���Cisfirk, Davidson,  McWha, Bassett,"Quance, Geddes,  Treberue arid "Murray (spare). Trail  ���Vanetta,.

City Council  "  A meeting of the city council took  place on Wednesday, the 10th inst.,  Aldermen   Rogers  and   D.  J.   McDonald   being absent,  the  latter in  California.      Some discussion  took  place over the working of the dog  tax bylaw, which has been amended  so as to include within  the scope of  the licence all canines   found within  the boundaries of the city, whether  the owner is a resident  of the municipality or  not.    City assessor, W.  X.  Perkins/was also  requested  to  prepare and  present   the  municipal  assessment'roll by April 7th7   The  usual   monthly  analysis  of the city  milk     supply   was   presented   and  showed the following results: J.

Masquerade Ball  The posters are out announcing  the date and program of the ball arranged by the members of the  .Woman's Patriotic society. The  date, as announced last week, is  March 17th (St. Patrick's Day) and  a very attractive list of prizes is offered for competition. The affair,  which is a combined fancy dress and  j'ha'rd- times" masquerade, is to  take place in the ballroom 'of  the Miners' Union hall, has stimulated the keenest of interest in local  circles and it is hoped will be crowned with the success it rightly deserves. The admission fee for either  sex is fifty cents and includes the  price of supper. The grand march  commences at nine o'clock sharp.  this week.' This proposition is.betfer  known as the Rbany placer mi��es.  Similkameen Star.  A revival of placer mining in  Granite Creek this year is predicted  by F. Mansfield, who has been engaged in making considerable preparation on his interests at the  creek. According to Mr, Mansfield,  a Seattle concern has secured a big  area of ground, and contemplates  spending a large sum this   summer.  The owners of the Horn Silver  mine, located across the Hue in  British Columbia, a few miles north  of Nighthawk, will ship considerable  ore to the smelter this spring. The  shipments will.be made either from  Nighthawk or Similkameen station.  The ore is said to run high ia values,  and the quantity in sight would indicate that the owners have the  making of a highly profitable property.��� Oroville Gazette.  Some remarkable assays have  been received by J.-~D. Moore from  the provincial department of, mines  on ore sample from the Hudson  group, back of Crawford Bay.  Sample No. 1 gave .02 in gold; 1.1  oz. silver and 20.0 per cent copper.  No. 2 gave .04 oz. gold; 540.8 or.  silver and 61.9 per cent lead. No. 3  carried .10 oz. gold; 357.5 oz. silver  and 7.6 per cent copper. Of these  three the third was a picked sample.  J. P. Thorkildson, a prospector of  Hazelton, has had assays made of  samples of ore taken from bis properties at Tacla Lake, in the Babine  country. In April, 1913, shortly  after he first discovered and filed on  these claims, a sample of bornite  (copper, with gold and silver showings) was assayed by the provincial  assayer, and it showed the following  values per ton: Gold, 0.O8 ozs.,  value  $1.60;  silver, 17  ozs., -value  Phoenix Junior Hockey  The Phoenix, junior hockey team  met the youngsters of Greenwood  on the local ice; last Tuesday, and  after a snappy, game defeated tbe  visitors by the decisive score of four  to one.

Counter Mines  The Granby (Phoenix) continues  to run  steadily  on  three-fourths of  its furnace capacity, and as stated  in our issue of a week ago, this is  likely (.to be the limit for some time.  Superintendent Campbell was in receipt of the authority on Thursday,  to  announce   another   rise   in    the  salaries of its employees at the local  mine, this] time to the figures pre-*  vailing .before the outbreak of' tbe *  war. 7 This scale, which-is the standard  pay   in    the   Kootenays   and  Slocan, went into effect on the first  day of March.  Counter-mining, the newest form  of sweeping a mine field, is one of  the most hazardous undertakings.in  modern naval warfare. In the operations against the Dardanelles forts  the Anglo-French fleets have more  to fear from mines than the shells,  from the  forts, hence  the necessity.  Legislature Dissolved  The provincial legislature was dissolved on Monday last, and the  government has announced its intention of making an immediate appeal to the electorate. The definite  date of the polls has not been >  announced, -but already ftie political pot gives signs of an ��� earlier  arrival at boiling point than usual.  Miniature Rifle Club  R. McCutcheon, Dominion7 customs officer at Greenwood, paid a  brief visit to  Phoenix .on Thursday.  A movement was started this  week in the city to.organize a smalt-  bore rifle club.

The  actual whereabouts do not appear  to be clear, some of the Canadian  troops having landed in England  and others in Ireland.- The regiment left Victoria on Sunday, Feb.  14th, and with the exception of  when they appeared before the  governor-general at Ottawa, their  movements have been .shrouded in a  veil of secrecy.  Jail Sentence  Messrs. Jas. Turner, P. Murphy,  H. Way and J. Henning, who were  arrested by Constable Stanfield, last  week, and held over on a charge of  chicken stealing, were arraigned on  Monday before his Honor Judge  Brown, all of the accused having  elected for speedy trial. Turner and  Murphy admitted the soft impeachment, but the others pleaded "not  guilty." The court, however, found  little difference in the guilt of either  and bunched them all under a sentence of seven months' hard labor.  1 L ' ' I I       II I II       I    J     I. .

Graham to be police and licence  commissioners for the municipality  of Phoenix. The mayor, D. J.  Matheson, by virtue of his ollice is  the other member of Ihe board.  not what might otherwise have been  expected.     Last fall, a contract for  125 feet was let  to  continue No. 2  tunnel on tbe vein East.     It proved  very  satisfactory,  and  some  good  concentrating  ore   was  developed.  In February, two contracts were let  to be driven all   for stock.    These  contracts aggregate 245 feet.     One  of these contractors is well   known  in Phoenix, namely T. B. Cosgrove,  who was fortunate enough to secure  a position as timber framer for the  Hercules mine, and sub-let his contract  to  two  other Phoenix boys,  H. Bradish and M. Burke.   All employees are taking their pay in stock  at 6 cents per share.  It will be pleasing to shareholders  in Phoenix to know that the Carney  is looking so encouraging. Experienced miners seldom take contracts for all stock, and especially at  such a figure. One contractor is  following the No. 1 vein East, and  it continues to look well. The other  is cross-cutting south for No. 2 vein,  and when reached will cut it at about  750 feet vertical depth. Present  workings on No. 1 ledge has attained a depth of about 700 feet.  M. D. Needham, who has resided at  Mullan for nine years, and has  known the Carney for years, is the  other contractor.  There is a better feeling in the  Coeur d'AIenes than has been known  for eight, years. All mining men  feel confident that there will be a  steadily growing demand for mines  and prospects for years to come on  account of the European war."  J. L. Martin.  ��� .��   Hon.

After many weeks of the severest  kind of training, tbe  men  of Canada's first contribution to the defence  of the ' empire have  at last entered  the cone of actual fighting-. , This  marks another epoch in the history  of our country, for whereas we have  hitherto looked  upon  the  war   as  something being fought out in other  spheres and scarcely concerning us  as a nation, it is now brought very  close to   us,   even unto  our   very  doors.   Canada, instead of widening  the breech, is drawing nearer and  nearer,  perhaps unconsciously,   towards tbe imperial idea.

The one-cent piece has at last arrived in town. There wont be much  of a. rush for them just yet.  Oh! yes. We are all expected tp  present a unitedjfront in the presence of the common enemy���except  the parliament of Canada which  at the present time' is anything but  an example to be followed by the  patriotic organizations that the war  has brought into being. Of course  we' are mistaken,' but we always  thought that the parliament of any  country was the pattern to' be followed by any organization laying  claim to the name of being loyal.  ' According to advices received  from Petrograd, the/war is to be re  sponsible for another sweeping reform in Russia. The first was the  total abolition of the sale or manufacture of alcoholic liquor. Thie  n.ext on the program is the institution of a far-reaching scheme of  compulsory education.' Education  among the Russian masses does "not  exist. Illiteracy is rampant. All  ibis, however, is to be changed, but  how much better it would have been  for the Russian army and navy of  today, if such reforms as the above  had been put into force twenty-five  years ago. The first-named increased enormously the effectiveness  of the Czar's soldiers, and the.vother  would have made the Russian army  such a tremendous machine that, opposition by the Germans would  ��� have been regarded in much the  same nature as a joke. Admiral  Makaroff, the Russian commander  who went down with  the battleship  I'etropauloffsk during the, Jap war,',  only a few days before his death,  bitterly lamented the illiteracy of  the men of his fleet. Himself a man  of brilliant attainments, it must have  been a matter of no little concern  lo him to realize that an enormous  percentage of his men could not  r>ad the gun sights on their rifles or  "i ival ordnance. The most elementary of text books were a dead language to most of them. Under the  circumstances, it is the next thing  to marvellous that the Russians  iinve been able to play so striking  a part in the present struggle.  It would seem that no matter how  great the undertaking,  there is al-  w.iys a   man   somewhere  to fill the  bill.     Anyhow,   this   has   been   the  experience of the  Imperial government, who were on the look-out for  a   party   to   superintend  th6 transport of a million or so of men with  war, material    across   the   channel.  They found him, too.     He was not  an individual bedecked with decora-  lions and half the alphabet .tagging  after his  name,   but   just   Graeme  Thomas.'superintendent clerk in the  Admiralty    transport    department.  Speaking 'of Mr. Thomas' achieve  The Daily Mail says "there has  been much talk of Hungary making  a separate peace. Hungarians in  their stress are recalling their traditional friendship with England.  These are but wasted words. They  come too late. The allies will make  peace when their task is accomplished.

McKeown  Probably no district in the Dominion of Canada possesses so great an array of  potentialities as the above.   The mountains throughout its entire length and breadth,  are almost without exception mineraliferous, containing gold, silver, copper, iron and  other valuable ores, while in a few localities there are more than surface indications  of the presence of coal.  FOREST AND MINERAL WEALTH  Its forest stretches are among the richest in the province, and what is of great  importance, easily accessable to river and railway. There is scarcely a square mile of  it that is not either equipped with high tension wires, or which could not be reached  by the expenditure of the smallest outlay. Not the least attraction from the point of  view of the investor, is the sites for water power, which abound in this district.  Just at present an immense amount of interest  is being directed to the recent  free gold discovery in Greenwood, while in the same district  is to be seen one of the  best equipped free gold properties in the west, a notjnconsiderable asset in these days  of industrial depression and shrinkage of gold reserves.     It is in this district where is  situated the Phoenix and Grand  Forks  properties of the  Granby Consolidated, together with those of the British Columbia Copper company.  . In the former camp, and  surroundingjt for miles on all sides, are acres of crown-granted mineral claims, all  awaiting the advent of the investor.    The title deeds to these properties, thanks to a  beneficent series of mining laws; are unimpeachable, and if proof is wanted  of the  * statement, let us point to the almost entire absence of mining^ litigation in the courts  of the province. -  AGRICULTURE AND FRUIT-GROWING CENTRE  The possibilities of the Boundary as an ' agricultural and fruit-growing centre  are also worthy of investigation, and a visit to some of its spendidly equipped orchards will prove a revelation to the stranger. The highways throughout the Boundary makes this section of the province the motorists paradise, millions having been  spent on the construction of government roads.  No locality is better served with railroads than the Boundary district. At  present jthis section is served by two of. the greatest, systems on the continent, the  C. P. R.and Great Northernvcqmpanies; while within a few-months the>dute to the  Pacific coast will be commercially curtailed by the opening of the new K. V. V.'  branch of the former.  /-.

The Empire Needs Many Foods  In the past Great Britain has imported immense quantities of these staple foods from  Russia, France, Belgium, Germany and Austria-Hungary as shown by the following:���  ��  M  <l  II  ii  Average  Imports  Years 1910-1913  Wheat  28,439,609 bush.

ETT For information and bulletins write to  ' Canadian  Department of  Agriculture.  Ottawa, Canada  Millions of bushels rather  than millions 6f acres should be  Canada's aim.  That there is abundant reason  to expect larger returns from  the same area Is conclusively  shoVn when we compare the  average production of the  present time with the possible  production. Note the following  brief table which shows the  average in 1914 and possible  production per acre.  Average Possible  Fall Wheat  20.43 52.  Spring Wheat...  14.84 33.  Barley  10.16 69.

By "possible" is meant the  actual results which have bean  obtained by our Experimental  . Farms and by many farmers.  These  "possibles" have  been  obtained under, intensive cultivation methods and conditions  not altogether possible on the  average farm, yet they suggest  the   great   possibilities   of  increased production.   By greater  care in the selection of seeds  more thorough cultivation, fertilization, better drainage, the  average could be raised by at  least.one-third.   That in itself  would add at least.$160,000|000  to the annual income of Canada  from,the farm.
