FIFTEENTH. YEAR  PHOENIX, B.C., SATURDAY, MARCH* !*> 1914  TRAIL CHAMPIONS  WIN CLOSE. GAME  Defeats Greenwood-Phoe  nix Team by Score  of 4 to 3.  The Trail he ckey trim played   its  fifteenth  game   of tbi   season    on  Phoenix ice Wednesday  night  and  won.      Out of IS games three  exhibitions and there were two, games  tied, but never a defe.it.   ' Wednesday night the Trail  champions,   the  holders, of the   McBride   and    the  Daily News trophies, played an   exhibition game with an   all star team  picked  from   Phoenix    and   Greenwood.    Trail won by a score of 4-3.  The ice was somewhat  sticky,   but  even with this   handicap   the   game  was fairly fast,   and   it   was  excep-  tionally clean.    There was the   best  of feeling throughout and when   the  game   was   over each team cheered  for the   other.      There   was  a  fair  turnout of the fans from both Green  wood and Phoenix.    The band  was  in attendance.  Haddock scored the first goal for  Trail within five minutes after the  puck was faced off and towards the  end ot the first period Morris and  Bassett each scored for the Boundary in quick succession, thus at  the end the score stood: Boundary,  2; Trail, 1.  In the second period only one  goal was scored, and that was by  Fraser of Trail.  In  the  third   period   Fraser  and  McDonough -each   scored   for Trail  andLynn scored for the   Boundary  ^aM^St^Xpass frottt": Morris: ~ "*" " ,"-'"*���   -  *?

Skating Rink Is Closed  The Phoenix skating rink has  been closed for the season, and all  having skates at the office' are, requested    to    call   for   them    today.  The above picture of the Granby  company's new smelter at Hidden  Creek, which is now ready to be  blown in, gives the reader a good  idea of this mammoth concern. The  following interview with E. E.  Campbell published in the Spokesman-Review tells of the progress  that has been made and what can  be expected when the plant is welj  in operation:  The annual output of the Granby  Mining, Smelting and Power company will be more than doubled  when the Hidden Creek smelter,  which will be operating in a few  days,_ is in ^permanent  commission,  ���Queen, on Texada island, which  Granby is working under a lease  and bond. The Midas was acquired recently from the owners, who  had it bonded for a time to the Gug-  genheims.  "The Copper Queen ore contains  considerable lime, making it a desirable fluxing material, and in addition the company owns a1 lime property on Portland canal, 60 miles  distant from Hidden Creek 4 by  water, and two shiploads of lime  from there already are on the ground  at the smelter.  The Hidden Creek plant is of the  most modern type in every  particu-  AIl Stars Play Drawn Game  Th�� Kootenay and Boundary  hockey match. played at Rossland  last Friday night, in which the  Phoenix-Greenwood 'team met the  Trail champions, was an excellent  exhibition, the score being a tie, 4-4.  The ice was in splendid condition  and good, fast hockey was played  all through the game. Morris of  Phoenix scored all four goals for  the Boundary team. Cook of Rossland was referee, and Saunders of  Trail was judge of play. The Phoenix and   Greenwood   boys  returned  During the coming summer the  British Columbia Copper company  expects to construct a tramway from  the Eureka mine to Eagle and Forty-  nine creeks, which it has had Under  development for some time, in order  to transport the ore from the mine  to the railroad. The mine is closed  down, but operations will be- resumed when the snow goes. About  35 men are employed at the Queen  Victoria mine,   also  owned   by   the  British Columbia Copper  company.   .���-��   Chartered Special Train  Dokies and prospective Dokies to  the number of about 50 from Greenwood   and   Phoenix    chartered    a  special train  from   here  last 'night  and went down to Grand   Forks to  attend the conferring of the  degree  by  Spokane Temple  EI   Mabaazar  No. 92.   Those who attended report  having  had the time of their lives.  The special left the C. P. R. station  here at 6 p. m. sharp, and returned  this morning after the   proceedings  were over.

Provided the   values  in this reserve hold at   or near   2.2  per cent copper and the price averages   14   to ,14^   cents   the pound  during th'e period, both of which are  probable,   the  gross   returns    from  Granby's new plant will be approximately $78,000,000, "or almost   four  times the   corporation's  capitalization, which recently   was   increased  from $15,000,000 to $20,000,000.  "The   last  report   from    Hidden  Creek estimates that   there   are   9,-  000,000 tons of ore ready for extraction above the 385-foot level alone,"  said Mr. Campbell.    "This does not  include probable reserves  not opened, nor., does.it take into consideration bodies  that   undoubtedly   exist  below that level.      In addition there  are several   other  properties   under  control   of  Granby   that   will   send  their product to Hidden Creek,   and  because of this   it   is   impossible   to  make any accurate estimate   of  the  life of the enterprise.  "Among    these    additional     ore  sources are the Mamie mine at Had-  ��  ley, on. Prince of Wales island,  originally owned by the Brown-  Alaska company, which operated a  smelter at Hatlley in 1905,"1906 and  1907; the Midas, on Solomon gulch,  cold storage plant, hospital, general  offices, clubhouse for company employes, a good school, customs  house, postoffice, government telegraph station, police department  and everything that goes to make  an up-to-date little city.  "The town now is a regular port  of call for the vessels of the Canadian  Pacific, Grand Trunk Pacific and  Union steamship companies, all of  which maintain a weekly passenger  service and will make it a twice-a-  week a little later, and there are a  number of freight" steamers on the  run all the time, some of them  operated by the companies named  and other by independent concerns.  "When I left Vancouver reports  from Hidden' Creek indicated that  the power dam, which had delayed  starting the smelter, would be completed soon and I am of the opinion  that the furnaces already have been  blown  in."

Declaring that the members of  the British Columbia Doukhobor  community, numbering over 6,000  people, have decided to take off their  clothing and show themselves naked  on the streets of Nelson if the government enforces the law in respect  to the registration of births and  deaths, or "should even take $10  worth of property by force or fin?,"  a letter signed on behalf of the members of the Doukhobor community  has been sent to the provincial government. '  The letter explains the motives of  the Doukhobors and declares "the  government of Canada has barbarously taken away improved land  from the Doukhobors in Saskatchewan. * The cost of labor on said  land is estimated by us to amount  to seven or eight million dollars."  In regard' to military service the  letter says: "Cain killed Abel and  this killing is continued up to the  present time, but most likely Cain  killed Able with his own > fist or a  stone, but nowadays the killing is  going on with long distance  arms.

How Paper Is Made  The paper which the reader holds,  and    on   which   The   Pioneer    and  thousands of other   newspapers  are  punted,,is made of wood.     It is reduced"  by  grinding,   but  some   is  pulped by  chemical   process.      The  latter leaves   a longer 'fiber,   which  can be noticed, and is made so   for  the purpose of adding resistance  or  non-tearing quality  to  the   finished  product.      All this  is of particular  interest how that the newspaper  industry of the nation is beginning to  "worry"  about  the   future     wood  pulp   supply,   and experiments   are  planned to introduce new classes  of  timber   into   the    manufacture     of  paper.  The larger publications of the  cities which have a circulation of  60,000 copies of 16 pages each will  consume per issue all the pulp made  from four acres of average pulp  wood.- This will give the reader an  idea, of the-dvain  on this supply. ,7  I"  Smiles Caused Trouble  Her own ability as a saleswomen,  coupled with her husband's jealousy,  were blamed by Mrs.   Adeline Saunders   for   her   domestic   troubles in  /Chicago   when   she     asked    Judge  Winnipeg   Co��Per for a div��^e.

C.���The  1-0 double score argument is a  rather'old one, but I have always  heid according to the strict mathematical rule that you cannot double  nothing.

B.���If the bet that a certain team shall double the score of  antagonists, and the result is 1-0,  the bet is won. One must be regarded as double or as many times  nothing as you like.���Winnipeg  Free Press.  O. D.
