The city  has a population of 1,60%  and possesses first-class  hotels, opera house, schawls  Popular Masquerade  The fancy dress and "hard times"  masquerade held in  the ballroom of  the Miners'  Union hall, on St.,Patrick's    Day,     surpassed   the    inosi  sanguine expectations of its promo-  tors, the Woman's Patriotic society.  The   ballroom   was   crowded   with  spectators   and   dancers,   while  tin*,  costumes and characters were of tht-  most wondering' and varied description and must   have   taxed   the skill  and   ingenuity   ofthe   wearers' to a j  a very  high  degree.    The  work of I  the judges was by no means  a sinecure and   not   a   little difficulty was  experienced in   choosing  those who  in "their  opinion" were entitled  to  the prizes.  Although given the designation  of "hard times" there was little if  anything of such a condition present, and most of the costumes appeared to indicate the other extreme.  Of course,   as was  only  natural  on  Ireland's saint day,   the green  and      ,  _.���.,.���. .^u  tu  mc iau-  the shamrock were first favorite and I Cy dress  list and  awarded  to Mrs.  figured   largely    in    the   design    of  many   of  the   characters   and   costumes.      The Ironsides orchestra of  six-pieces furnished   the  music, and  what   must   not    be    over-looked,  generously  placed  their services at  the disposal   of  the society-without  recompense.     Encores  were  in  unlimited demand, which in  itself was  sufficient proof  of the   pleasing nature of the program rendered.     The  problem   of  feeding   the multitude,  for it was  a   multitude,   was   easily  surmounted by the refreshment committee   and   there   was    more   than  enough  to   go   round.     The- grand  march was   a  spectacle   well   worth  witnessing,   but^the   ever-changing  .variety of dress, color and character  was .too. much for  the judges, so it  had to be repeated.      The following  were eventually adjudged   the  prize  winners:  Fancy Dress-���Ladies' best sustained character, Mrs. j. T. Mullan,  as grandma; second ditto, Mrs. W  Wills, as lady, early Victorian era;  gentlemen'.-; best sustained character, Wm. Wills, as a troubadour;  second J.  Ingram, civil war veteran;  gentlemen's comic, G. 'Evan's,' Uncle  Tom; second ditto, Geo. Clerf as  Dutchman; ladies' comic, Mrs. Geo.  Clerf, suffragette; second ditto, Mrs.  Roy Clark, as Topsy.  Hard Time Dress���Ladies' best  sustained character, MtohV. Mayers,  as a Bowery girl; second ditto, no  award ; gentlemen's  best sustained  character, ���: ,   Old   Churn;  second ditto, Thos, Beaulieu, Tough  Times;   gentlemen's comic, Ab. McQueen, Tipperary Mary; second ditto,  Jos.   Madore,   hobo;   best   lady  walzer, Mrs. Andrene; second, Mrs.  Danworth.     Best  seller   of  tickets  Mrs. J. A. Miller.   The judges failed  to find any  competitors  for the ladies' comic costume, so they awarded  an   additional    two   prizes   in   the  ladies'   best   sustained  series.      These   went   to   Miss   M  Bateman  and Mrs. T. Beaulieu.     A  similar difficulty arose in the case of  the second   prize in   the ladies' best  sustained  hard  times   character, so  this also was  tranferred  to the fan-  PHOENIX, .B.C., SATURDAY,  MARCH 20,   1915  Mining Notes; of British Columbia  Platinum to the value of $1*000  was taken out of the Tulameen last  season.

This raise will connect the new tunnel with the No. 8 level. The work  is going on most favorably. At the  Noble Five mine the tunnel, which  is being   driven, is   in   about  1,600  high grade ore being found in a  narrow vein at the point of intersection with a larger one.  R, J.

In the course of an  informal talk  with    a   week-end   visitor   to   this  city, a  couple of weeks  ago, a  representative- of the Pioneer put the  question direct:   "Is the proportion  of    non.English    speaking    people  greater in Ontario- than  it is in the  province  of British   Columbia  (the  French excepted)?   The answer was  a   surprise.'    "You   will   probably  scarcely believe me," said the traveller, "but as far as my own personal   observation goes,  I  believe   the  proportion in   the older province to  be much greater than  is the case in  B.C.      I think i am in a position  to  judge, as   I am  on   the go continuously some  months  from   week end  to week."     Take  Port Arthur and  that district for instance.

He had  a separate track put in, and the ore  will go down this week on its way  to San Francisco. This is the first  car lot to go from the valley although  smaller shipments have been made.  Mr. McDonell says the Coronada is  looking exceptionally good and it  will not be long until another car of  ore is ready.  Political Notes  The controversy which raged  throughout the Boundary district  ever since the dissolution of the  legislature, over the respective  new boundaries of Grand Forks and  Greenwood districts, has now been  settled, that is as far as tbe position  of   Phoenix   is   concerned.      Greeh-  sponsible, or whether the movement  to'Canada was a spontaneous one,  he said that it was part of the  scheme of the big, railroad companies to supply themselves with  cheap labor,, The Canadian Northern had inaugurated their steamship  serviceat first with this end in view.  Mining in Similkameen  The British Columbia Copper is  preparing for extensive operations at  Princeton camp as soon as weather  permits, and 25 men will be added  immediately to the force that has  been employed there during' the  winter. Diamond drilling and other  preliminary work will be rushed.  Oscar Lachmund, manager for the  British Columbia  Copper .company  left for New York on Friday last to  attend   the  annua!   meeting.     It is  expected that the company's smelter  at Greenwood will be put into active  commission.      It  also   is expected  that the company will deal with the  matter of ore transportation.    If the  Canadian   Pacific or Great Northern  do not build to CcTpper mountain the  company probably will build a tramway for its own use.  F. P. Cook of Granite creek is ex-  hibiting  some    fine   specimens    of  nugget gold ranging in , value from  $25 down to $1.    These  were  bb-  tained from the Granite Creekplacers  recently, and are an   indication   of  the  riches   recovered   in  the  early  days amounting to $500,000.   .

The   fiist   serious   accident   since  the resumption of operations  by the  Granby mine,   in November, occurred   on   Wednesday,   soon   after   the  morning shift went on,   and resulted  in the  death   of John  Johnson   and  serious injuries   to   his  partner, another miner  named   Daniel   Larson.  The mishap took place in one of the  chutes   on   the    two   hundred   level  and was brought about   by a fall of  rock   from   the   "back."      The deceased   miner,   who  was  unmarried  and 24 years  of age, was  a nephew  of A. O. Johnson, proprietor of the  Knob Hill hotel.  Mr. Johnson was a sober and industrious young man, having resided  in Phoenix three years, during which  time he had won the respect of all  with whom he came in contact. The  funeral takes place on Sunday at  1.00 p.m. . .  The rejuvenation of the Liberal  party in Phoenix was commenced  on Tuesday, when at a meeting the  following officers were elected: T.  Beaulieu, pres; vice president, W.  Bellis, treas., N. J. Carson; sec, J.  Evans; pres. executive board, F.  McDonald; delegates to the convention, Oscar Gustafso.n, Axel Gustaf-  son, Dr. Ritchie and W. McGilli-  vray.  The Liberal convention for Greenwood district was held in Greenwood, on Wednesday, and resulted  in the unanimous choice of Dr. J.  D. McLean to contest the riding.   ��.   Granby's Production  According to a  statement   by the  mining editor of the Vancouver Province, the  present   outlook   for   the  Granby company's operations on its  low grade ores  of the   Boundary is  brighter, and there is a   prospect of  these ores   being   supplemented   by  extensive shipments ofthe refractory  silicious gold   ores   of the  Republic  camp.     The Granby company's copper production at Grand Forks during the past year was about 10,000,-  000 lbs., and at  Anyox   about   12,-  000,000   lbs.   copper.     The   Anyox  plant also produced about 2800 ozs.  gold and 130,000 ozs.  silver.  The Little Store  First Street. Knight & Barnes, Props.  W. G.

It is now five years since the government began   to take active and  energetic steps to combat the curse  of bovine  tuberculosis   in this pro-  vine.    This action was taken after  the leading scientists of the world  had  declared  after   exhaustive  research   that  tuberculosis  could   be  communicated from animal to man.  Experimental   work   in   Edinburgh  amongst children affected with  consumption, proved that out of seventy-two cases investigated, sixty-five  were ofthe bovine, while seven were  ofthe human type.    With such evidence as this  before  them  the government   passed  an   amendment to  the Contagious diseases Act making  the testing of all milk cows compulsory.    When   this   was   first  commenced the  percentage  of reactors  to the tuberculin  test in the principle dairy   districts   was  as follows:  Gulf Islands, 7 per cent; Vancouver  . Island,   ,10 per  cent;  Lower Mainland, 15 per cent.    That the efforts  of the government to  stamp out the  plague have met with -extrordinary  success   is  proved  conclusively-   by  the  latest  test   which   showed   the  following: Gulf Islands, no reactors;  Vancouver Island, 7 per cent; Lower Mainland, 5*4  per cent,  making  a  record   that  few, if any   country  in the world can equal.    During the  progress of this campaign hundreds  of    infected      cattle     have     been  slaughtered,   aud   who can say the  number of infantile  lives that have  been  saved   by   the   government's  forethought.     As   to    the   charges  that the government were spreading  the disease  by allowing  the sale of  infected   stock   for   meat   purposes,  little  credence   need   be    attached.  People nowadays require something  more than bare charges.  They must  have   facts,   and   in   this   case,  like I  many others the facts  are not forthcoming.

To carry this gentleman's line of  reasoning one step further, is there,  any consideration of ordinary truth J  or decency   which   may    bind  the  German  private citizen?    If kaiser  and imperial chancellor may lie and  cheat for  'reasons���of state,'  if the  German officer may perjure himself  under oath to save his skin, is there  any reason why a German merchant  should not lie and cheat^to save his  dollars?    All he need do is convince  his conscience that his welfare is the  welfare     of    the .fatherland   and  Treitschkeism will do the rest."  The Wall Street Journal says that  "no man could have foreseen; that  in a bare six months Germany,  blind, furious, futile, fighting like a  rat, would be screaming like ai  spanked baby."  Many hockey fans have been asking why Phoeuix did not secure one  ofthe silver cups at stake between  that team and Trail.    It was understood   that   goals    on   the   round  counted.     Phoenix,  on  the  round!  consisting of the game at Trail and J  the game at Phoenix was ahead one  goal.    This should entitle them to  the Nelson Daily Newscup.

McKeown  At a meeting of the Grand Forks-  board of trade last week, it was decided  to  give   some  support  to  a  petition   from   the   holders   of free  miner's licenses who are praying the  government to  exercise some  dis.  - cretion in   the cases  of parties who  have been unable  to fulfil the terms  ,- laid down in the Mineral Act.    This  is a commendable move on the part  '   of our  sister  city's board  of trade,  ..   for if the   terms  of  the Act are en-  ;   forced   this year,   it spells   nothing  ��� but  blue   ruin   for   hundreds.    The  fact   is   becoming  more   aud   more  apparent that  the .cult of the pros-  ,   fJector is   practically   disappearing,  and when it does so the mining in-  , \ dustry of British ^Columbia  will be  ,  the poorer for it.  Hitherto the ranks  Canada is a new  country. : She  has never before been called upon  to equip and train a, modern army  for active service in the most terrible of all wars, a proceeding which  entails a tremendous amount of purchasing work on pur untried depart,  ment of militia.    Yet certain members of His Majesty's Loyal Opposition at Ottawa (God Save the King)  seem to expect from them a measure of efficiency on a par with that  of a European  war office wbich has  at its back a highly-trained military  staff maintained for the purpose.   It  is all  very well  for the Opposition  to say that such expert help would  have been forthcoming for the asking, but Canada doesn't want it and  we have a proof of this in Laurier's  summary   dismissal   of   the   finest  militia   commander the   Dominion  ever had���Lord Dundonald.  Western mines are being operated  upon a commendable business basis  to a greater degree than ever before.  Investors are becoming educated to  the fact that every Tom, Dick and  Harry is not qualified to successfully  run a mine: that something more is  involved than the mere digging of a  hole in the earth. They have learned that miniog is as much a profession as medicine, and that a min  ng engineer must acquire an education, reinforced by practical experience along special lines. No shoe  manufacturer would," for example,  place an unlettered sailor in charge  of his business; nor should a mining  company entrust its affairs to equally  SYNOPSIS OF COAL  MINING REGULATIONS  Goal mining rights of the Dominion,  in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and APj  berta, the Yukon Territory/the Northwest Territories and in a portion of the  Province of British Columbia, may be  leased for a term of twenty-one years  at an annual rental of 81 an acre. Not  more than 2,660 acres will be leased to  one applicant.   >  Application for a lease must be mode]  by  the applicant  in person to  the  Agent or Sub-Agent of the district in  which the rights applied for are situated.  In surveyed territory the land most  be described by sections, or legal subdivisions of sections, and in uneur-  reyed territory the tract applied for  shall be staked out by the applicant  himself.  - Each application must be accompanied by a fee of $6 which will be re?  funded if the rights applied for are not  available, but not otherwise. A royalty shall be paid on the-merchantable  output of the mine at the rate of five  cents per ton.  The person operating the mine shall  furnish the Agent with sworn returns  accounting for the full quantity of  merchantable coal mined and pay the  voyalty thereon. If the coal mining  rights are not being operated, such returns should be furnished at least once  a year.  The lease will include the coal mining  rights only, but the lessee may be permitted to purchase whatever available  surface rights may be considered  necessary for the working of the mine  at the rate of $10.00 an acre.  For full information application  should be made to the Secretary of the  Department of the Interior, Ottawa,  or to any Agent or Sub-Agent of Dominion Lands.  W. W. CORY,  Deputy Minister of the Interior.  N.B.���Unauthorized publication of  this advertisement will not be paid for  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 ofthe 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 not inconsiderable 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 ofthe British Columbia Copper company.    In the former camp, and  surrounding it for, miles on all  sides, are acres of crown-granted mineral claims, all  awaiting the advent ofthe investor.    The title deeds  to these properties, thanks to a   I  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 or-  chards 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 this section  is served-by two of the greatest-systems on the continent, the  C. .P. R. and Great Northern companies, while within a few' months the route to the  Pacific coast''will' be commercially curtailed by the opening of the new K. V.

The war  tax  of 7 }4  per cent on  Submarine v. Airships  ���The fact that a man flying- a few  hundred feet  in the   air can plainly  discern   objects  far  below the  sea,  was brought to the   attention when  Bleriot made  his  first  crossing'of  the English channel.      He says that  he was startled at the, sight, and on  looking straight down he saw what  he thought was a  school of whales  swimming inline', at a great depth.  Closer inspection, however, revealed  not whales, but a flotilla of submarines  carrying out some  exercises.

Not a day  passed but what he had to refuse  entry to some, but the chief, difficulty lies in the fact that, while a  man may be refused entry at Grand  Forks, there is nothing whatever to  stop him from buying a ticket to  some other point, such as Molson  or Oroville, and then waiting until  night to walk unchallenged into the  Dominion.
