Crowded to  Ovcrflowing-rBig Program  Rendered.  m$m&x:  '^MfXi  The  members, of "the   victorious  hockey  teams,   with their  friends,  gathered In   the   opera   House   in  strong force on Friday of last week  and  celebrated .the   finish   of   the  hockey'  season     with   a   concert,  which  was 'followed   by' a   jovial  smoker in   the  lodgeroom   of   the  building*, j; The business men of the  city gave liberally towards  the en  tertainment, and the funds obtained  helped  to swell   the ' somewhat depleted exchequer of the sports committee.      R.   K.'   McCammon   presided over the concert, the.program  of which   included, songs,   recitations  and    instrumental'' selections  by   an     orchestra     consisting    of  Messrs.  J.   Finlay,   Chas.   McKay,  Albert Biner and   Chas.   King, the  latter of whom made a most acceptable accompanist.  The smoker, held afterwards, was  another  success, and   the  proceed  ings  were  thoroughly  enjoyed- by  _\s\\ present.     Throughout the even-  ling there   was- a   liberal   supply of  Cigars,   tobacco  and 'other refreshments on hand, while song, speech  id  story   enlivened   the   evening.

The  popular    Ironsides    orchestra    discoursed sweet music for the revellers  and included in their program a few  bf * the   old   time   favorites,  which  were much appreciated.     A delightful   supper  was  served   by   Danny  Dean in the   banquet   room   of the  building.      , The   ball    room    was  tastefully decorated   with   the   illu  minated arms of the order and   the  noble bird of prey was   in   evidence  on all sides.

At-least-they repeat all they heai  and add some to it. *   "-'  '"William Morrison;   a  partner* of  William  Moberly  and company, of  Atlin,   arrived   in   Vancouver   last  week from the North.    He declares  that it is absolutely impossible  now  to use  the Wrangel-Stikene  route  and   points  out  the  fact  that  the  government    is    using"- the    Atlin  route   for   getting   mail   into ,the  district.    He'says   that  there  will  be an easy water  route,   via  Atlin,  by which the creeks tan be reached  as  soon , as  the  ice  goes.     Other  people   who   are   acquainted   with  the district confirm this report.  v Howard Porter, who is well  known around Stewart as an ..experienced prospector, has come out  from Silver Creek and is on his  way to Altin to record his, claims  and to obtain supplies. He has  also hired Indians from Telegraph  creek to haul in 400-.pounds of  supplies for immediate purposes at  25 cents per pound. He says that  he has sunk a hole on his claim,  but that now there is ten feet of  water in the workings and this has  obstructed development. He has  found a few good colors and altogether he says, the district' has  given him a favorable impression  as being a splendid one for placer  mining.  Ore-samples tested by ^competent  analyists at the assaying laboratory  of the University of Alberta in  Edmonton prove that the mineral  wealth of the province has as yet  only been vaguely surmised. Some  of the ore runs high in gold, silver  and copper, while other pieces  show iron and lead. Prospectors,  who havV^tramped. over jthe foot  hills of the - Canadian > Rockies,  predict that the next big "rush" on  tho^>ttortVi.American i continent -will  be^nto^nofthWes^rni^^ll^r^J/BiTid  eastern ' British;,'Columbia, "adding  that the vast hitherland also will be  a scene of activity with the introduction of transportation  lines.      More  Trip Through' Mining Districts  ,%M.  Grbich,    organizing  sec.   for  District No. .6 of the W.  F.   pf  M.  returned to town this week   from  a  tour of his jurisdiction.    In a  chat  with a Pioneer represeptative on the  prospect for mining this season, he  appeared to be extremely* sanguine,  and outside of the big camps   conditions seem to  be  improving.    At  Moyie in East Kootenay,  he  found  {things      considerably      improved.  ���Two diamond drills being  at   work  on "the St. Eugene, which   has been  dormant for years, while thirty  five  men were engaged on a  scheme   of  development which gives  excellent  promise of useful   results.    North-  port was also included in  his  tour,  and    while    there      he      had    an  opportunity   of   visiting   the    Star  mine, which he and others  consider  possesses one of the  truest  copper  gold ledges  in  the  whole  of that  district.  The Paulson Inland Mining Co.,  situated at .Paulson, Mr. Grbich  says, are expecting big things this  summer. The property at present  employs a*bout twenty five" men,  and already possesses an Efficient  ten stamp compressor, which is to  be immediately increased to. a fifty  stamp capacity. In addition to  other inprovements, including a  more effective hoist, the mine is to  be supplied with a 25 drill compressor. At Curlew, Wash., _ the  Curlew Mining company, a \yorking  man's proposition, are now industriously at work on the actual  ledge, their outlook being regarded  as .bright.

J. E. McDonald of the  Kings Hotel is installing a high  class motion picture house in the  premises adjoining the hotel. The  plans of alteration of the premises  have been passed upon by the responsible authorities and the  transformation into a commodious  and comfortable theatre is already  under way. The seating capacity  will be over 200 and the latest  style of, opera chairs have been  secured.  - Mr. McDonald who was in  Spokane during the week, arranging for film service, etc., informs us  that he expects to have an opening  celebration about the end of this  month. A complete change of  program will be presented every  night. More complete announcements will be made in our next  issue.  DEVELOPMENT WORK  ON DUNCAN GROUP  N. J. Carson Inspects Operations  ���Kettle Valley Railroad to  "Run in Two Weeks.,  ���f V" (. 1  X  Sad Mining Accident  R. Draca, an Austrian miner,  employed in the Granby mine, sustained fearful injuries in an accident  on Wednesday morning, when an  explosion of dynamite inflicted injuries that possibly may result in a  total loss of sight. An authentic  report of the circumstances leading  to the accident is to the effect that  Draca was engaged in a drift, wprk-  ing a Murphy drill and while clearing away the ground in preparation  "Excellent progress is being made"  on the Duncan mine,   near  Beaver-  dell and the future prospect for that  property are  highly encouraging,"  says   N.   J.. Carson,   secretary    of  Phoenix     Mining,    Smelting    and  Development Co., which  owns   the  property.    Mr. Carson  returned   to  town on Friday from   a  visit  of a  few days to the group  which   consists of three claims.     Throughout  the winter the  company  have  had  from four to six  men   employed  iu  both developing   and sacking  ore.  There is about one carload  of fine  ore on the dump, while the company  has   another  two  carloads  at   the  railroad siding awaiting shipment.  The principal shaft is  down  about  100 feet following  the lead  almost  from grass roots,   and the  present  scheme of development consists of a  tunnel which it is  intended  to  tap  the vein  some   twenty   feet   lower  than   the  shaft  has   yet    reached.  The ore is a  high-grade  silver-lead  product   and  the  lead   has   a   di-"  mension of 18 inches.  Mr. Carson said that there is  very little snow in the valleys and  the logging camps are breaking up.  The river is unusually low at present. It is expected that the Kettle  Valley Railroad company will take  over the road from the contractors  inside of two   weeks,   news  haying  for setting up his drill, his pick  either came in contact with some been received to the effect that the  stray powder or struck a "missed 1 Railroad Commissioners,had passed  hole.'i.- He ,was.aloae,��atIthe!|ti��lB^f Uawmatgy onjhe. undertaking.    - -^  ,''-.-<-.   ���       ....       . ����� ".

Some weeks ago Mr.  White secured from a Nelson  assayer a certificate giving a slightly higher value in platinum from  this ore and he regards the result  of the test at Sandon, which-was  carried out under his direction,  as confirmation of the presence of  the metal in the Crowford Bay  rock. Speaking of the difficulties  met with in assaying for platinum,  Mr. White, who has become a  believer in the existence of platinum  in ores in this section of Kootenay,  mentioned that one well known  Slocan assayer who has been carrying on experiments in testing ore  for the platinum metals, placed a  piece of platinum metal. in some  pulp and on the first assay secured  no results.'. The metal, said Mr.  White, remained in the slag. On  the second trial it "came down"  and gave the results. The Crawford Bay ore formation, said Mr.  White, is similar in many respects  to that of the nickle fields at  Sudbury, Ont., the rock carrying  a percentage of nickle. He regards  it as significant that considerable  quantities of platinum are known  to be contained in the nickle matte  shipped to United States refineries  from Sudbury. He added that he  had in his possession a federal  government publication which  showed that considerable quantities  of nickle were present in the ores  of the Queen Victoria mine near  Nelson, which is now being   operat-  about 8 miles from Rossland, some  of which, Mr. Grbich learned, were  to receive immediate attention.  Coming nearer home, our infor-  jrnant stated that the Fife lime  quarry wasjvorking full blast, the  whole of the product going to the  Trail smelter. Rumors were also  rife around Fife to the effect that  Fife Mining company, a Spokane  outfit, were shortly to re-commence  operations.  Hockey   and Curling: Trophies  The  display   of   silver   plate   on  view  in  the window of Ed. Black's  jewellery   store   testifies   more   eloquently than words   to  the brilliant  play of the   Phoenix   hockey teams.  In all there are   four splendid pieces  of  silverware   displayed.     First   in  order of importance is   the McBride  cup,    emblematic    of   the   interior  hockey championship and  the most  recent  of the   trophies  offered   for  competition    in    British   Columbia.  But in point of size and beauty that  offered by the  Nelson  Daily News,  easily     is    the    most   conspicuous  among the captured emblems.    The  Boundary     trophy    seems    hardly  worth mentioning  by reason   of the  fact that  it has   now seemingly become a   fixed   exhibit in  this camp.  Not the least important of the four,  however,   is   the   cup   presented by  Dr.   Stone,   J.   E.   Thompson   and  Ernest Miller, M.P.P.   for competition among the  intermediate Boundary teams.      But while the hockey  teams have  been   busy gathering in  silverware,   the   curling   club   were  by no   means   idle,  both  the Smith  and   Burns   trophies   bearing  testi-  DID YOU EVER NOTICE how  much better you feel, how much  more confidence you have in yourself when you're well dressed ?

C,   March   20,���  An   important   conference   upon  the   matter    of   forest    protection  along the lines of operating railways in the  West  has just  closed  at Winnipeg, the British   Columbia  Departmrnt s of    Forestry    having  beeu  represented   thereat   by   Mr.  R, H. Benedict of the  headquaters  staff and the parties  to  the  conve-  tion being   the   federal   Board   of  Railway        Commissioners,        the  province of British  Columbia,   and  the Canadian Pacific, Grand Trunk  Pacific,    Canadian    Northern    and  Great Northern railway  companies.  General protection  to'timber  along  the right-of-way was of cource  the  theme    of   the   discussion.        The  patrol system   inaugurated  by   this  province last year was   reported  to  have proven  generally satisfactory,  and will be  continued  this season,  with slight  variations   where   large  bodies    of    timber    justify     more  thorough patrol.    Last  year   every  mile of right-of-way. was  inspected  by the  provincial   officials and   the  regulations     strictly    enforced    to  guarantee the safety of near forests  and   due    payment  of   royalty   for  timber cut on  crown  lands.      The  work   of   inspection   is,  peculiarly  onerous in connection with construction operations, and   on   the   whole  the   provincial   officers   have   been  well    supported    by    the    railway  companies.        The  rule   has   been  laid down that everything cut  without permit is considered: to constitute a trespass^   and   where  timber  is cut with or   without   permit,   the  brush must be properly disposed of  without    delay.      The    system    of  handling this inspection work on all  lines   under provincial , jurisdiction  and control is to have it  preformed  Ly the provincial  officials  and   the  cost   collected   from    the " railway  companies.  ^     In   the  case of the  Grand Trunk   Pacific  (a  Dominion  controlled   undertaking)   the   company has  been   paying  one-half of  the fire protection   costs, and   this  arrangement the  company's representatives stated   at  the   Winnipeg  gathering   they ^ are    willing    and  anxious to continue.  6RBHM  BAKING POWDER  You will find it a great satisfaction to do  More Home Baking  You will make biscuit, cake and pastry  clean, fresh and tasty���better every way  than the ready made foods.

Loss Through Strikes  Over a   million   days'   labor was  lost in   Canada   last year  owing to  strikes,  according to the Dominion  .Labor report.     This   is   only about  half the loss   that occurred in 1911.  The total number of employees who  went  out   on   strike   was   40,500.  There   were  few  important strikes  affecting  public   utilities   and   thus  coming   under   the   Industrial   Disputes Investigation Act.      Nineteen  were referred to   arbitration   underi  the^-Act,   and    all   but   three   were  settled.  Filipino Leader to Visit Canada  Emilio Aguinaldo, the former  leader of the Filipino insurgents,  expects soon to visit ^Canada in  order to study the working connection between the Dominion and  Great Britain. He believes that a  similar connection between the  Philippines and the United States  might be the solution of the  Philippines problem.  The revenue of Japan for the  past year shows a total of $292,-  000,000.    N  British Immigration Insufficient  After many year*, of conservatism  in immigration, as far as all immigrants, other than those speaking  the British language are concerned,  the Australian authorities havf*1  decided to appeal to Denmark for  immigrants. Hitherto practically  all immigration came . from the  British Isles, Canada or the United  States.  The Australian government, however, feels that a wider field should  be sought out, and are seemingly  convinced of the necessity of drawing supplier ot settlers from other  countries besides Great Britain,  Referring to Lieut.

Reilly, of San  Francisco, from entering Canada*  Reilly was coming north to fight  Joe Bailey, lightweight champion of  Canada, at Steveston on -March 29.  He was booked to Victoria but' the  immigration officials refused to let  him disembark.  Prizefighters, or anyone who  engaged in performances of an  uninstructive nature, are classed as  undesirables and therefore are not  permitted to land in Canada. Prizefighters vwho bring down big purses  for their fights will no doubt be  somewhat put out on learning  that they are undesirables. Reilly  was not the only one who could  not disembark from the Umatilla.  His'trainers and the moving picture  man, who was to record the fight  on tbe film, were also refused  admission to Canada, being classed  as undesirables.  A number of frequenters of the  Barbary Coast, which was closed  down at San Francisco a short time  ago, were also unable to land at  that port. They went onto Seattle.  Reilly and his party, if they desire  to come to Canada, will have to  obtain special permission from the  superintendent of immigration at  Ottawa.

Low Wages For Girls  A witness who has ''not been  called hefore any minimum wage  commissipn to give her testimony,  but who knows, perhaps more  about the wages a young girl should  have to enable her to live a respectable life, spoke her opinion in  Portland, recently, in the course of  a lecture.  The party in question was Evangeline Booth ofthe Salvation Army.  "I think," she said, "I know, in  fact? that in New York city, where  I make my headquarters, a working  girl cannot live-���barely live, mind  you���without being harassed to  death, without being subject to the  worse temptations, on less than $9  or $10 per week. It cannot be done.  "That is in New York, but I do  not believe a girl can live for any  less in other cities."  Miss Booth answered with scorn  the statements of wealthy Chicago  manufacturers that the amount of a  girl's wages made no difference as  to whether she went wrong.  "Oh, it makes all the difference  in the world," she exclaimed. "It  makes such a difference that I know  ���I know personally from the result  of the investigations the Salvation  Army has made in New York during  the course of its work���that hundreds of working girls are advised  to go wrong when in employment.  "Why,   a girl   will   be   told that  she  cannot   live  on   the wages she  will get, and that she bad better get  a 'friend' like the other girls.     No  secret is   made   about   it. " And yet  .they   say ~\t -makes   no  what wages a girl is paid  '   "Not   many   girls go  wrong for  sheer   want    of   bread,    perhaps,  Commander Booth   continued.      "It  isn't the need   of present starvation  that drives them   to vice.      But  it is  Canada's Revenue Still Rising  The ever increasing volume of  customs receipts which has been  such a feature of the administration  of the department by the Hon. J.  D. Reid is shown in the returns for  the eleven months of the present  fiscal year. The revenue for that  period was $103,485,000, compared'  with $77,716,000 for- the corresponding eleven months of the last fiscal  year. This shows an increase of  $25,769,000, or in other words-, the  increase for the eleven months of  this fiscal year is greater than the  entire customs revenue for 1898-99,  which was $25,734,000.  In order that the bounding revenue from customs alone may be  appreciated, the following statement shows the collections for the  first three years of the Liberal administration. The first year of the  Laurier regime showed a customs  revenue of $19,891,000. For the  year 1897-98 the revenue was $22,-  157,000 and only in 1900 did it  reach $28,000,000 or slightly over  the increase for the eleven months  of the past year.  The revenue for the ��� month of  February was $9,156,000, and for  the corresponding month last year  $7,447,000, being an increase of  $1,707,000.

During the   debate   on  the naval  contribution, or rather gift, a certain  Geo. W. Kyte allowed   his patriotic  ardour to soar to such heights as to  suggest that Canada should remain  neutral in the event of Great Britain  being engaged in' a European war.  According'*to this  it would seem as  if our   old loyal   friend,   Sir Wilfrid  was losing control over some  of his  followers.      Sir   Wilfrid   has   never  quite gone so  far as   Mr. Kyte, but  he certainly attached a tough string  to his own naval proposals when he  inserted    the ���  condition    that   the  sanction of the Parliament of Canada   should   be necessary   before the  ships  ofthe   Dominion  lined up for  battle alongside of those of Britain.  We   repeat,   it   would   be   a tough  string, especially if the   Opposition  resorted to   the   undignified  tactics  that have attended the present naval discussion.     Mr. Kyte, (we never  heard of him before) also points out  the unprotected  state   of Canada if  the   three   Dominion   dreadnaughts  are stationed in the North sea.    But  the hon.  gentleman   will  surely admit that the wisest policy is to fight  a battle as far removed  from home  as possible and where could a better  spot be found than in the North sea,  for   even if  the   Imperial  fleet with  its   Canadian   units   were defeated,  does   Mr.   Kyte    suppose   that   the  enemy would   be  the province the time__for landing  the speckled beauties is still unchanged, viz. the 15th of May.
