D.-  Quinby, and the mill foreman, P.  Brady, and the results were highly  satisfactory.  -    Manager  Charles A.   Banks   ?*nd  Mrs. 'Banks arrived  home on   Saturday,   February   28,   after   au   extremely tempestlious trip  across the  Atlantic   from   England.    Although  they travelled   on   the   largest   and  most powerful steamer of the  Allan  line,'the vessel' was two   days   late,  most of the top-hamper of the   vessel being carried away by the heavy  seas.    As   Mr.    Banks   is' to   take  personal  charge  of   affairs   at   the  mine  from   now   on,     Mr.   Quinby  will  retire   shortly, and,   being   deservedly popular on account  of his  genial disposition and sterling  atri-  butes as a mining man,   his "departure will be generally regretted.   He  expects to leave,in a  few   days   for  "God's   country."   /There    can   be  no question but that Canada   would  be   immensely   benefited   if all   the  American     citizens    sojourning    in  this pait of the world were   men   of  .similar tastes and attainments.  On  Sunday evenirg,   March   l*t,  at   seven    minutes.  p~ast    nine, two  ictly  laving?  with, there were 12 rinks entered in  the competition, and each   team did  their utmost  to   win   out, and only  this week the   contest   ended   with  four teams  with   five  games ���> to  its  credit.     A new schedule was drawn  up, and after the smoke of the first  two   battles    had    cleared,    it  was  found that the rinks skipped   by  J. j  F.   .McDougalL and  J.   A.   Morrin  were duly elected to fight for championship   honors.     At  the  close   of  a  keenly contested game, J. F.  Mc-  Doiigall's  rink   won  by  a  score of  10-8.     The following  were the contestants:    Skip, J.   F.'McDougall;  vice, Geo. Evans; 2nd, J. W.   Han-  nam;  lead, C. Moore.     The   losing  team   consisted   of:      Skip,   J.    A.

Those who are willing to take  chances with their money in the de  velopment of untried prospects must  be offered terms such as will encourage them to invest their money, said  Mr. Cunningham, who believes that  there are hundreds of properties in  Kootenay ,and Boundary .which will  show up well under development if  the men with the money can be ia-  duced to take hold of them.  He is, convinced, however, that  the day of the payment of half a  million or a million dollars or even a  'quarter million dollars for properties  which, although worthy of development are little better than "prospects, is over except in very rare instances.  He stated that he looked for an  extraordinary revival of interest in  mining operations during the coming spring and summer. 'iThe  investing public has been pounded  and hammered in real estate speculations and is heartly sick of it.  But this same public st'djl has the  money and still has the desire to  invest it profitably,' and I believe  that mining will''be ^the industry  .which will prove the ^attraction,"   he  aas  Number 34,  if  THE PROVINCIAL  ESTIMATES GIVEN  Where Hockey Cups Rest  Many Works Throughout  Province Are Nearly  Completed.  >  'iogr'fa'afrectlon^fr'o'm^Wc^t*'lL't<''  Na alarm  was   experienced, as   the  qualms of Mother   Earth   were   too  slight to cause any uneasiness.

The  total estimates is $13,700,000 as  against $19,000,000 for the present  fiscal year. Public works have been  reduced, from $9,600,000 to $5,300,-  000.  Explanatory of this it may be well  to point out that many of the works  and buildings for   the  province   are  nearly completed and it is not necessary to make  further  large   appropriations. ' There is a vote of $150,-  000  for  government  buildings    at  Prince Rupert, $500,000 for the provincial university and  $486,000  for  public school   buildings  throughout  the province.     In roads, streets and  bridges there has been a uniform reduction    to   $2,900,000    making   a  total reduction, compared   with   the  present year of $4,000,000.  The vote for education has been  increased $300,000, owing to the increase in the per capita allowance as  the result of increase of population  and the increased grants to assisted  schools. Of the education estimates  $9,660 is for technical education���a  new departure.

There was  a  dispute as  to  where  the   game  should be played.     When the Trail  team  came  over to  the Boundary  last Friday-night  they were willing  to play  the  Grand   Forks team on  either Grand Forks or Phoenix  ice,  in fact they would have preferred to  come here, as the ice was  in   much  B.C. Mining  The Silver Cup mining company,  operating on Nine Mile, near Hazel-  ton, are considering a proposition  to lease their property to the Clothier Bros, for a term of years.  *A monument of solid galena  weighing 4,750 pounds taken from  the Silver Standard mine near New  Hazelton has been placed on a raised platform on the corner of Pugsley  and Twelfth streets in that town.  Activity in mining  stock   trading  (V  in Spokane, has increased to  such"a  better  condition   than" that" at" the I foiot reCent,y that t���he e*chao*f/s  Forks.      Grand   Forks  insisted on  the game being played in their  own  town,   which  terms were  accepted  by Trail, even though the ice was in  extremely bad condition.   Trail won  the McBride cup by a score  of 3-2.  Trail boosters went over on a special  train to the number of 225, yet when  the  next game  was  to  be  played  Grand Forks refused to play at Trail  and  insisted  on  the  match   being  pulled off at Rossland.    When Trail  refused to accede to these demands,  the  Grand Forks management got  in a "huff" and sent  over  the cup.  The    ending    of    this   contest  is  anything but satisfactory.  All hockey enthusiasts in the  Boundary and Kootenay outside of  Grand Forks, are of the opinion  that Grand Forks has acted childish  in the matter and extremely- selfish.  As matters now stand, Grand Forks  holds the Boundary cup, and Trail  the McBride and Daily News trophies,   i   -���> .���__  Opera House Improvements  kept open even on Sunday. Added  impetus has been' given the boom by  the announcement that the Standard mine near Silverton had declared the regular monthly dividend  of $50,000, or 2}4 cents on the  share on the issued capitalization of  2,000,000 shares. The disbursement will be made on March 10.  This makes Standard's dividends  for the year $150,000 and brings  the grand total to $1,225,000.  11  ���rl  Two Houses Burned  Fire broke out in the home of F.  W.

A New York poultry raiser, believing the egg's his hens were laying were not white enough, was  advised by a friend that small doses  of paroxide of hydrogen fed in  water or mash would aid his hens  to produce eg#s of the proper degree of whiteness. He tried the  experiment and the eggs grew  whiter, but not fast enough to suit  him. He then increased the doses,  but his hens soon stopped laying  eggs of any color, and soon they  began to die off one by one. The  rooster was the only one of the  flock not effected by the "dope."

He was at  the Strathcona one night last week  on his way to his home at Winnipeg, but he figures on returning to  Phoenix or some other team in this  district next winter.  He had nothing but praise for the  Phoenix hockey fans for the manner  in which they supported their team  in a financial' way and by tCirning  out at the games. The whole town,  mines arid all, quit' business to  attend the   matches,   he  said,   and  , 4*  V.  they didn't forget to" root." t  He congratulated GrandN Forks  upon winning the league championship and expressed the opinion that  Phoenix fell from the top place in  the league through overzealous  practices, which caused the boys to  get a little stale.

"Mother" Howe recalls with con-  siderable amusement the debut in  Sydney of Bob Fitzsimmons, then a  raw, lanky blacksmith, unsung and  unheard4 of. Fitz was suddenly  shoved into a matinee program with  Jem Hall, who at that time wasn't  the idol he afterwards became. It  was to be a sort'of tryout for both, J  merely a short preliminary bout for  which Bob was to receive as his end  a sum amountingHo $7. -        j  Fitz won the contest, received the  $7 and went   back   to   his   dressing  room.     There, to his horror, he dis- }  covered   that   some   one   had   gone j  turough his trousers and   stolen   $8  which he had in one of the   pockets  and   which   was   all   the   wealth he  possessed.    Thus Bob Fitzsimmons  first professional fight cost him   one  dollar.  "Bob was so mad," said Howe  in telling the story, "that he resolved to turn fighter right away.  He used to say that he thought of  that first fight and the missing $8  many times in subsequent battles  and just about that time he would  knock his op'ponent out."

Everything in Men's Wear  The Dublin correspondent of the  London Times^has learned on good  authority that the Ulster volunteers  have more rifles than volunteers in  some counties, ard that they possess 60 machine guns.  In sumniing up the work of the  players in the Pacific Coast hockey  association it was found that  "Cyclone" Taylor, center for the  Vancouver team, scored the highest  number of goals. He played fifteen  ganjes and scored 32 times.  Major A. Megraw, who has been  managing editor of the Hedley Gazette for the past nine years, has  severed his connection with that  paper. The business has been  taken over by W. C. Martin, who  has been connected with the paper  for the past five years.  In order to provide work for the  unemployed in Vancouver, the provincial government will undeVtake  extensive clearing on 'the property  it ownswhere the new girls' reformatory home stands in Hastings  townsite. This clearing will be undertaken almost at once.  Vancouver  aldermen    will   draw  $100 a month pay from the city this  year.    "They decided   it   themselves  and   refused   flatly   to   consider the  proposal to reduce   their salaries by  half.    That will take $1200 for each  alderman,   making   $1-9,000  in   all,  and Mayor Baxter will draw $5,000,  making $24,000   for   the   wages   of  Vancouver's representatives.

In these words ,Str' Richard   McBride at the session' of the   legislature,   discussed the probabilities   of  the  early  evolution   of  a   scheme  which   he   is    known   to   have had  closely at heart   for   many   months.  The premier was speaking oh the  reading of the bill granting  further  aid to the Pacific Great Eastern railway, and took occasion to point out  that the   extension   into..the   Peace  river  country   would   be  an   initial  step toward   the   construction   of a  north and south railway.      He  said  that  from   Fort  George' the    line  would go directly north to the Parsnip river before branching into   the  Peace river  country   and   that, this  section of the line might   ultimately  be used as the first step- in  the  extension to Alaska.  "It seems to  me   that  the^' Hon.  F. K. Lane, Minister of the interior  for   the Utited States! has made   an  epoch in national and  even international history when he   secured  the  passage of a bill approptiating $35,-  000,000 for the development of a national railway system for Alaska.    I  have attempted to cultivate 'interest  in the British Columbia-Yukon road,  and since this province is bound   to  profit materially by its construction,  where should there be more interest  in the matter than in British Columbia?"  The premier went on to explain  that the project was too expensive  for the province to take up single  handed'at the present time, but he  said he believed this was the only  reason why it'should withhold from  the further pressing on at once. But  he said it lay within the strength of  Washington and Ottawa to approach  the project and by giving it life to  secure,,its completion within the  next fivet years; -   .     *     '�����. ��� �� .���,  Hojtel Brooklyn  ���l     - The Only First-Class and Up-To-Date   ���  Hotel in     hoenix.

Mr. Ross on the  idea.     The New York paper said:  "The British Columbia minister  of lands last week iutroduced a bill  providing- for a government regulation of prices on lumber from the  public property, and fixing the roy  alties to be paid by those working  the timbers/lands in proportion to  the prices. The lumbermen are  said to approve the idea, and the  government expects eventually to  get $2,500,000 annually, while re  taining the land from which the  timber was taken.  "It is singular that the .idea of  associating prices and profits from  the proceeds of public resources has  been so tardy in arriving. Hitherto  the problem has been attacked from  the point of reducing the excess of  profits of such exploitation by taxation. That only makes the product more costly to the consumer,  without "reducing the profit to the  exploiter. It is not too late to  profit from the example of Canada.''

One ofthe reasons for .now ��� making the design  cover the.entire face of the coin, or  placing near the rim the lettering or  a series bf stars, is to prevent shaving off a portion of the gold or  silver. This is also the object of  milling the edges...  Though it has. gone out of , fashion, kings at one time thought nt  worth their while to give their  royal attention to the gentle art of  debasing coin. The English pound  once meant a real pound of silver,  but though it bore the same name  it rapidly grew to represent about  half that amount. Henry VIII,  needing money and discovering that  the people did not realize the difference between the name of a coin  and its weight, repeatedly melted  up the good weight coins and re-  coined them into many more coins  of the same .name but of lessi  weight.

After being securely sealed and
locked in a safe in Phoenix since
June 3rd, 1912, the following agreement between wtll known local men
was opened this week: ,
'     Phoenix, B. C, June 3rd, 1912.
This ■■; agreement • between J A.    O.
Johnson ahi& T. Turano of the  city of
Phoenix is*as follows: ;
If T. Turano gets J married in 1012,
A. O. Johnson agrees to pay Turano
the sum of $5. ■- If A. O. Johnson gets
married in. 1912, T. Turano will pay
the sum of $5. If both paities get
married dm'ing the year, Clias. Ha-
gen will pay each $10.        (Signed)
..',. A. O. Johnson,
,  ' T.Totuno.
(Nick Palorcia, Witness)
The agreement was entirely forgotten until one day this week Mr.
Johnson came across it in his safe
with a batch of other papers. In
the year 1912 Turano got married,
but Johnson learned during the
meantime that Turano was already
engaged when he signed the agreement.   Johnson   confronted Turano
and the latter acknowledged the
aligation, and "came through"
cheerfully, for both Johnson, and
Palorcia, the witness. ;
