Monday saw  the  hockey t season   in   tlje^^Boundary,  when the final game   to  decide  the  interiorchambionship ofthe province  took place.    The  contest  was  between the crack team of Nelson and  that  of the  home septette.    ?Two  cups, were up for competition^ one  presented     by    the    premier,}   Sir  Richard McBride and the  other' by  the    leading    interior    paper/t the  Nelson Daily News.   The continued  warm weather had somewhat" *soft-  ened the ice, but even  the- visitors  admitted   that   its   condition- *was  superior   to    that   on    which! the  first   series   took  place  in   Nelson.  It   was  a  clean  game  throughout  and the visitors excited considerable  praise    for     their      sportsmanlike  qualities  and    also   by   the   manly  way  in which,they accepted defeat.  Contrary   to    expectation    there  was   no  special   train    from   either  Nelson   or Grand    Forks,    but    a  number came   up  on   the   ordinary  passenger.   There   was a crowded  attendance, but the   tension   of the,  past   week   among    the   fans   had  somewhat    relaxed.      Fenwick    of  Nelson executed some"really brilliant  stunts while Hacking  and   Greyer-  biel .seemed t��tie for second hontjr&y  but on the   whole  the   combination  tactics of the visitors   left  little   to  be desired.     A feature ofthe -game  on ,'th'e JPVioenwt side-' Wsus ^tKo .iU-luck  that dogged .Moore" and Davidson  it with the puck. The closing minutes of this period were marked by  some good combination work on  the part of Nelson together with  some really clever checking on the  part of McKelvey and Sayers. The  score for the first period was 1-1.  Generally speaking, the pace dur-  ing-the second period was not notable for speed,   but there were times  when an occasional individual stunt  enlivened  the  game.    Nelson paid  the first visit   and   Bassett   made a  fine break, but was cleverly checked  by Bishop.     Moore also took a rapid business  trip  to   the   other end,  only to see the puck neatly swiped  from   him   by   Atkins.     During   a  scrimmage   in   front   of Mitchell, a  shot from a Nelson forward skidded  on the former's sticks and   fell over  into   the  net.     Nelson   also forced  matters and   Sayers and   Moore did  some   fine   combination   work,   the  the former taking the  last pass and  making a  straight shot that barely  missed   the   post.     A   second   later  the same party landed the rubber in  the Nelson net.     Quite an increase  in the  speed   was then noticed and  Phoenix   made   three   unsuccessful  .visits in   as many minutes.     Moore  tried  anotherrshot-and   missed  by'  a small margin.      Heavy work-then  ensued for Flukie and Moore aroused considerable.enthusiasm by some  the Miner's Union hall; the latter  affair was largely attended, the  dancing being kept up until the  following morning. Harold Mc-  Coskrie made an excellent floor-  manager and the. music was furnish.  ed by Messrs. Chas. King, Chas.  McKay and John Findlay.  During the supper, the handsome  trophies, emblematic of the Interior  and Boundary championships, were  filled with a supply of the generous  juice and passed around, after which  a number  of short  speeches were  delivered in proposing and replying  to the various toasts. Dr. Vigneaux  -and Mr. Bishop of Nelson spoke ia  a kindly  way of the home  team,  and expressed the hope that the two  teams  might meet again next year  for,,   the    interior    championship.  Chas.    Davidson   made   a  suitable  reply and incidentally commented on  the   fine "sporting  instincts  of   the  visitors.  Handsome Gifts to Hockey Team  Prior  to  his departure    for the  coast   a   few   weeks   ago,   O.   B.  Smith, jun., who for years has taken   a parental  interest in the local  hockey  club,   generously promised  a gold medal to each member ofthe  team and  management, conditional  on the club retaining the Boundary  championship.    Last  week,   in accordance   with    his promise,    the  medals arrived  and at Friday's big  smoker the recipients were presented  with the jewels, which were greatly  admired.  "' Provincial Voters Last  " t  The whole of the old ��� provincial  Pither-Leiser Curling Trophy  The  rinks of Chas. M. Campbell  and G. Kay, which throughout the  local curling season  have been victorious  over   everything  in  sight,  came  together   on   Saturday    last  to decide the honors of the Pither-  Leiser trophy. Both the above rinks,  which  have  been conspicuous   for  consistent    work    throughout   the  season, had each a score of eleven  out of a possible thirteen.    The decisive    game   drew   an   interested  crowd  of friends  and  members of  the club, but  the poor  condition of  the ice had the effect of robbing the  game of anything  in the  nature of  the spectacular, and  accuracy was  much  a  matter  of  chance.      The  teams  tied  on   the  third  end  and  Kay's rink  led  on.the fourth.    On  the fifth Campbell took  the lead by -  four and  no scoring was done by  either side on the sixth end.      During the  seventh and  eighth Campbell's rink  notched  another couple  of points and the final  end saw his  opponent's  score  rise two   points.  Result: Campbell, 10; Kay, 6.  The following composed the contesting rinks: C. M. Campbell,  skip; G, S. Thompson, vice; C. H.  Knight, second; Murdoch McLeod,  lead. G. Kay, skip; Wm. Lindsay,  vice; H.

The contest smarted at 9.18 p.m.  and for a few minutes the features-  were very even, until Charley  Davidson took charge of the rubber  and wriggled his way to the visitors'  j ice where a lively scrimmage took  place and the home bunch were  forced back to mid-ice. Some very  threatening work then took place to  the left   of  Mitchell,   which   Moore  opposition and scored the third goal  for the orange and black. Mitchell  was on guard when the gong rang.  Score, 3-2 in favor of Phoenix.  Resuming Phoenix forced matters  for a couple of minutes, but some  clever work by the visiting defence  brought the scene of action to mid-  ice and for some time the teams seesawed, Neil almost scoring. During a visit of Nelson, Moore grabbed the rubber, aud what seemed like  straightened   out. by   a   swift   bolt  another   goal    was    frustrated    by  for the enemy's net, but what looked  | suspiciously like   a   tally was foiled  by the   tinkle   of  the  off-side   bell.  Grand   Forks   quickly  returned the  visit and   treated   the  home  net to  three successive shots that Mitchell  took   splendid   care    of.      Fenwick  followed with   a  long straight shot  that Mitch returned in speedy style.  Some fine fast play on centre then  took   place,    both    sides    exerting  themselves for a breakaway.  Moore  turned out to  be the  lucky one and  passed   neatly   to    McKelvey   who  scored in seven minutes. Resuming,  a quick advance   was   made   by the  home   seven' out   of which   Moore  tried an unsuccessful shot.     Nelson  immediately,  retaliated  and made a  rapid   change    to   the   other   end,  where    Cochrane    caught   Mitchell  napping and equalized the score by  a very slow  shot.     Both Herb Neil  and  Bassett now, showed up in fine  style, the Nelson boys swarming on  all sides  of the   home net in a very  business-like   manner,   but with   no  result.      Some    anxious-    moments  were caused at this time hy Mitchell  leaving   the net  and sailing around  Atkins and the puck returned to the  front of Mitchell.     The third period j  was   noticeable  for   ihe   individual  work on   both sides  while  the   gait  was  considerably   increased.      Neil  of  Phoenix   shooting a   successful  high   shot,    and towards    the   end  another from the same player, shot  from centre ice,   ended the   scoring.'  The last five minutes witnessed  the  neatest checking of the   season,   no  side being  able   to   hold   the   puck  more   than   a   couple   of   seconds.  The finish   again   saw the   visitors  hard   at   work   on   the    home   ice.

One    of   the    most    interesting  speeches   delivered in   the   debate  was that delivered by W.   G.   Weichel, member for  North  Waterloo,  who defeated Hon McKenzie King.  .\s a  member of German   descent  and     repesenting    a   constituency  largely settled by people of German  descent, his utterances commanded  unusual  attention.     Canadian  unanimity   in   the   Borden   proposals  waa shown by  the  speech   of Mr.  Weichel,   for  although  he  paid   a  stiong tribute'to  the greatness and  progress of the German Empire  he  made   it  very  clear   that  he   was  enthusiastically   behind    any    plan  which made  for the  strengthening  of the tics betwenn Canada and   the  Motherland   and gave    his hearty  support to the plan   for a  stronger  navy.      It   was  one  of   the  most  striking speeches of the debate  and  seldom  a young  member gets  as  close a hearing as Mr. Weichel.

V ,. ^;. ^\^ ��  ' And again in  closing Mr.   Wei-  tuting the statistical record of timber revenues forJanuary and February. These (in the ordinary recapitulation of license fees, transfer  charges penalties, rentals, etc.,  amount,, for the two months just  closed, to upwards of half a million  dollars���to be exact, $500,805.03.  There is to be added to this handsome total, however, the proceeds  of the sales by tender of odd remnants or isolated small stands of  timber which took place on the 24th  ultimo, and which more than redeemed even the most optimistic  hopes concerning them.  Approximately  $130,995   is   the  immediate contribution to the general provincial revenue through the  sale of these^odds and ends of tim-  ber  (a  considerable   pot lion  of   it  fire-killed and destined to be a total  waste   unless   immediately cut) besides which royalty is to  be paid on  every    tree   and     pole   cut,    thus  eventually bringing  to the treasury  a  further  sum,   the   magnitude   of  which   may be  broadly appreciated  when   it    is  remembered   that  the  present   royalty  is   at   the   rate   of  50c. per M, and the tracts disposed  of are roughly estimated to contain  89,004,000 feet "of timber, in addition to poles and railway ties, all of  which will bear tribute.  Aside from the monetary phase of  the question, too, the newly inaugurated     competitive   sale   policy   is  peculiarly advantageous to the country in as much as purchases are in all  cases    made   conditional   upon   immediate cutting, so that in the event  of the   lands  of any   of the" tracts  being     suitable     for     agricultural  utlization, they will be  available for  the pre-emptor as   soon   as   logged  off���and   pre-emptors   are    certain  to come   to   British    Columbia   in  industrious battalions now that "free  lands for settlers" has been adopted  as a policy in   this   branch   of   the  Lands Department.  Yet still another accruing benefit  is   found   in    minimization   of   the  general __ forest   fire    risk    by    the  expeditious removal of timber, which  otherwise would in numerous  cases  constitute an unavoidable and   very  serious monace.

White Slavery in Canada  A deputation of chiefs of police  from all parts of Canada has'recently asked the Minister of. Justice to  amend the criminal code so as to  restrict appeals in disorderly house  cases, and to institute more stringent inquiry into the white slave  traffic in Canada. They also wanted broader right to search suspected  disorderly houses. The prevalence  of wife-desertionvwas emphasized as  a reason for legislation providing  for deportation.  The recent drastic legislation in  Great Britain directed against the  white slavers is "already bearing  good fruit and the heavy crop of  cases before, the judges and magistrates has proved beyond doubt the  wisdom of the British Parliament in  granting extended powers to the  police. The existence of organized  gangs in London, with agencies in  New York and Buenos Ayres, all  engaged in this blackest of traffics,  has been known to the metropolitan  police for years, but owing to their  limited powers they were unable lo  lake action except in rare instances.  By the new act the British police  are invested with extraordinary  powers, one of them being the  right to make arrests without the  formality of a warrant. The penalties are also severe, the use of the  whip, even on a first offender, being  a noticeable feature. An interesting  discussion as to whether the "cat"-  should be included in the list of  punishment met with some slight  opposition und a- motion to exempt  women .from the whipping  was also  an *������ ,,"^i"'"T  i   ii   i nil win ii'ii I"inn N  finance the expedition ofVihjalmur  Steffannsson, tbe Canadian explorer  to the far north. SteflFannsson's  claim to fame is his di.icovery of  the tribe of blonde eskimos on Coronation bay, on the Arctic ocean.  The famous explorer has planned  an extensive trip into the unknown  country to the north ofthe mainland  of the continent and all his work is  to be under the direct auspices of  the Dominion federal authorities.  The country to be explored is Canadian  territory.

The party will outfit at Victoria,  B.C.t/and is to be equipped with  .the most modern appliances that  science can suggest. As far as-  practicable the expedition will be  composed of Canadians and the main  camp will be established on Hers-  chell island. SteflFans^on expects  to' be away for four years.  The   decision   of the  government  in taking the matter up and making  of it   a    national   undertaking   is  deserving   of    considerable    praise  and  will   no  doubt  meet  with   the  approbation    of    every     Canadian  gifted .with a spark of public spirit.

An Encouraging Reception  - No fakir, or otherwise undesirable person could have been subjected to such discourteous treatment as that meted out to Dr.  Friedman by the medical authorities  of the state of New" York. Dr.  Friedman, who claims to have made  a valuable discovery in connection  with the cure of consumption, was  objected to by the doctors of New  York on the grounds that he did  not possess the necessary license  to practice in tbe state.

KNOB HILL AVENUE  The "Sun's" Contention.  Our    breezy   contemporary,   the  Grand .Forks Sun "feels quite positive that up   to  the pre.sentv time no  craft of sufficient buoyancy to navigate the air  between" the two countries has been invented."    As usual  our friend is wrong again and are-  cent report   appearing  in  the Aero,  a journal exclusively devoted to the  science     of     aeronautics,     is    the  Pioneer's    authority    that   such   a  craft is actually in  existence.    The  LI, as   it   is   named,   has  a   lifting  capacity of 27 tons, it sailing radius  o( 1500.  miles, and  a  speed  of  50  miles per hour.     It  is also credited  with ability to keep aloft for twenty  hours.     Now, wheti'it is considered  lhat   the   distance   from   Dover    to  Cologne-in Germany is but a matter  of 240   miles it.would   be quite possible for the LI   to   reach the Dover  ��� or Woolich  supply  depots in about  six   or   seven   hours.      This   would  allow   ample   time   for   a   two-hour  visit, leaving the remaining hours of  the twenty to make its way back  to  the   place   it   starred   from.       It   is  somewhat   difficult    to    understand  the Sun's  contention,   unless possibly it might   be due to ignorance of  relative    distances   in    Ktirope,     or  what is more likely, wilful misrepresentation of facts  that are patent to  everybody.  C.P.R. to Spend Big Sums  The Canadian Pacific Railway  company are, as usual, well to the  front again iii the amount of money  to be expended in development this  year. On their eastern lines alone  they contemplate the expenditure  of $16,000,000., Of this sum six  millions will go towards double-  tracking the lines, while a greater  part of the remainder will furnish  employment t6 many hundreds in  the construction of a new line along  Lake Outario. The C.P.R. is a renowned money maker, but they certainly know how to spend it.

Each day sees sales of the metal,  and I should say that copper is now  daily moving into consumption at a  rate slightly in excess of the daily  rate of production.

In  the case of the foreign consumers,  each 'order' from Europe is generally followed, if not accompanied by  instructions, that the copper bought  is to be shipped on. the earliest  possible steamer.  "The character of the present  demand for copper is very encouraging, for it indicates that consumers are operating on the smallest  possible margin of stocks. - The  present rate of demand, in conjunction with the large sales made of  the last two weeks would seem to  indicate that the metal now occupies  a strong position  mm  rtVli  "The Pride of the Boundary  PHOENIX, B.C.
