D Lynch, who had  charge of the diamond drill operations on the Lame Foot group, has  moved here with his outfit and has  started operations on the Snow-  shoe.  1    ~*���^   Mining Ncjtes o;f British Columbia 1  It can be said with authority that  the Granby Consolidated company  have acquired the Snowshoe mine  which lies close to Phoenix.  The group comprises the Snowshoe,  the Pleasant, the Fairplay fraction  and  the Alma  fraction.    For  thir-  Spoke on Labor Troubles  Joe Cannon spoke in the Miners'  Union Opera house last Tuesday-  evening on the trouble now on in  the copper mining districts of Michi  gan.

Mr  and for a considerable time  worked I Cannon made an eloquent  plea   for  by the Snowshoe Gold and Copper  Mines, limited,, and considerable  ore was taken out. A few years  ago the Consolidated' company of  Trail took a lease on the property  and operated it successfully for  five years. The area of the group  is about 110 acres.  "C. M. Campbell, assistant superintendent of the Granby informs the  Pioneer that   development work on  this newly acquired   group   will   be  started at once.     The property   will  be    worked   by   running  a   branch'  from the Curlew tunnel   to   a   point  under   the   Snowshoe   shaft.      The  branch will   handle   all   of  the  ore  above this level directly.     The  ore  from   below   will    be    hoisted  and  dumped into a   pocket   tributary to  the drift.     The lower workings will  be .drained of  w.ater by a 350 foot  tunnel, which will be driven from  a  point    at  a    considerable  distance  down  the  hill.      The portal will be  located near the bridge on the Grand  ', Forks  road."    The adding of this  property   to 'the* already  extensive  :, holdings Jof - the   GranSy"company  will mean an increased tonnage and  doubtless will add several, years   to  the   life  of the   camp.      All of the  buildings and   mine   equipment  on  the Snowshoe have been taken over  by the Granby people.  The work on the Lame Foot has  been discontinued for the present.  This   is   a   property   located  in the  the people of the strike district. He  said he never saw a more-determined  lot of men and women,Nand there  was no doubt about their holding  out until victory comes.

The  third   furnace  at the British  Columbia Copper company's smelter  at  Greenwood,   is   completed   and  ready for service, but lack  of. coke  and the nonarrival of ore cars  sufficient to handle  the  increased   ton-  nag��4ias delayed blowing in.     Another  contributing     factor   to  the  delay is the   failure  to  clear away  and open up the 450,000 tons of ore  brought  down   by  the  big blast in  the British Columbia properties early  in September.        It  is   anticipated,  however,   that everything will be in  readiness to blow in the furnace in a  few days.      The  September  report  of  the   company    shows    621,000  pounds of copper, 10,084 ounces  of  silver  and   188,20 ounces   of gold  produced at the Greenwood smelter,  a slight decrease from the  previous  BOUNDARY HOCKEY  LEAGUE MEETING  Delegates from   Grand  Forks,  Greenwood and Phoenix-  Proposed Schedule.  ���" ���*     1 *   *��� w**u  With   an  output  in   October-"of mon>'1*    The production for 1913 to  Bank Robbers at Large  The robbors who broke into the  Union-Bank at New Hazelton a few  weeks-ago and got away with $16-  000,. are still "at large, although  every effort has been made to get  them.

Considerable discussion took place  regarding rules to govern the  league, as the rules heretofore have  been very meagre. It was proposed  that each club draw' up rules and  t3,atffcthose. be- submitted to the delegates of thexlubs, who will- hold  a meeting in Grand Forks on Monday, December 1st, previous" to the  meeting of the Boundary-Kootenay  league of the same date.

Mitchell  the  invincible  goal  tender for the  Phoenix hockey team last year, may  again   be   here   for   this    season.  Mitchell has been at  the  coast for  some time, and it was  thought   for   x  a while   that   he   would   put in the  winter there,   and play  either   with  Vancouver or Victoria teams.     It is    '  therefore good news that there is  a  probability of him  coming  back   to  where   he   won    such   success   last  season.    With   Mitchell   returning,  the Phoenix team will be practically  complete.  Death of Mrs. Knudsen  The wife of Chas. H. Knudsen  died in Phoenix last Saturday, at 7  o'clock at the hospital.

Joe Lally Coming West  Joe Lally of Cornwall, Ont.,  champion lacrosse player and one of  the strongest supporters of the  national game in the Dominion, will  be in Nelson early next year, according to a letter received by the  Daily News, in which Lally states  that it is the intention of the Dominion Amateur Lacrosse association  to start a movement to increase  interest in lacrosse in every town of  importance in Canada.  When Lally conies to Nelson he  will visit the schools and talk la  crosse with the boys, as he believes  that the most effective method of  arousing interests in the game is to  get hold of the prospective player  when he is at a young and receptive  asre.  Don't Want McManigal  i If Ortie E. McManigal comes to  (Canada, as is reported to be his intention, he will be turned back by  the immigration authorities as an  undesirable, according to the statement by the superintendent of that  department at Ottawa.  McManigal,      whose    confession  aided   in   sending   the   McNamara  brothers    to   San Quentin   and   33  other union labor officials   to   Leavenworth, penitentiary,    was   in   Detroit last week, according to a story  in    the   newspapers.       McManigal  was released   from   the   county  jail  at Los Angeles on   November 3id.  It is understood he intends to   cross  the Canadian border at Buffalo, and  that his ultimate destination is London,    England.       McManigal it   is  said is   accompanied   by   Detecti  e  McLaren, who   arrested   ihe   dyn.i-  miter in Buffalo three years ago   on  a train running between   ihcie   aid  Drtroit.  Look  at the  Young  Fellow  Sets  the  Pace in  Clothes  If you could only ask them you'd find a lot  of them  wearing  TAILORED CLOTHES  That's because they're sure ofthe style and correctness of them. It takes good cutting and good  tailoring to get the proper fit into the snug,  form-fitting coats worn now. And only that  same good tailoring and all pure wool fabric  will make it stay there.  If you too want to be sure of that fit and wear you  had better get yourself a suit of STYLE-  CRAFT this time.

It   frequently happens that after a  deal is  consummated an effort is made   to  deny the agent his commission.    At  Rossland a case has  justv been   decided   by Judge   Forin.    The case  arose out of the saI6 of the   Kootenay hotel   in that   city   by   G.   D.  George to F.   J.   Kioklele.     F.   E.  Armstrong found the purchaser   foil  the hotel, although it seems he   did  not disclose the name of this   prospective purchaser.    Mr. George refused to pay   Armstrong   his  commission, claiming he did not   figure  in   the   transfer   as   agent.    Armstrong sued   for  $400  commission,  and this  amount was   allowed  him  wilh costs.    The point at issue was  as'to whether an agent is   bound to  disclose the   name of  the   proposed  purchaser before   the   deal" is   put  through to entitle him to   his  commission.    The result of the decision  is that it is not necessary   to  make  that disclosure.  ,Historic Indian Bridge  There is' an Indian bridge near  New Hazelton spanningthe roaring,  treacherous Bulkley river that is a  momimenYto the ingenuity, perseverance and determination of the  native red man. A feature "of the  bridge is the almost total absence  of nails, as only a few Hudson Bay  spikes ivere available at* the time.  The bridge is of a perfect suspension style of architecture. The timber was whipsawed,' and the'joints  were made by dove-tailing and  burning a hole with red hot coals  through'the two logs, rnto which  was driven a stout wooden spike.  The joints were then bound with  wire, which the Indians procured  along the Yukon telegraph line. To  everyo.ne who has seen the bridge  it is a wonder, and it is doubtful if  in any other place in the wot Id such  a bridge can be found.  ; t  IT   "* ���    >  V�� -  li " '  U'r  It-   *  12. :;���  r>< >    ~  I "-   ,  le, ^  They are cultivating the vacant  lots up at Stewart and growing potatoes and garden truck on them.

Regarding the goalkeeper for kneeling or lying on the ice, for the"'first  offense a $2 fine will be tbe penalty; the second offense a $3 fine  and ruled off five minutes. The  third offense will be a fine of $5 and  a 10 minute penalty, and the third  foul a fine and banishment for the  remainder of the game. The. seven  man team was ..not discussed, and  the six-man game will again be  used.'  An official board  of six   referees  * *��� c.   '  at a salary   of $300   and   expenses  for the   season   will   be  appointed,  two from Toronto, two from  Mont-  real,   one   from   Ottawa 'and  one  from Quebec.        ���-    ' -      Asl      j .  A Test Hockey Game  r^ Frank Patrick's proposed-offside  rule for ice hockey (wiH'be tested at  Victoria when the Vancouver and  Vicloria'professional teams will play  an .exhibition game today.  The rule provides for the division  ot the ice into three sections each  of 70 feet, a lincbeing drawn across  the ice that distance-from each end  of the rink. In the middle section  there will be no offsides, and the  players may pass the puck in any  direction. Between the lines and  the goal nets, however, the old offside rule will be in effect. It is believed that the change in the rules  will speed up the game, although  some eastern critics do not take  kindly to the idea. It is contended  that the offsides in center ice really  have very little effect on the scoring  and that therefore they should not  be counted.    >  It is' announced from Victoria  that Dubbie Kerr will come from  Edmonton and go to the coast immediately. The acquisition of  Kerr will give Victoria a mighty  powerful team. Here is the lineup:  Goal, Lindsay; point, genge; cover-  point, Patrick; rover, Poulin and  Rowe; center, Dunderdale; right  wing, Smaill; left wing, Kerr; .substitutes, Ullrich and Mitchell.

When a hen lays an  egg she calls heaven. and earth to  witness it. The hen 'is a natural-  born advertiser.

Arriving from the other end of the  world to marry a man she had never  seen, but who had courted her by  correspondence, Helen M. Kasabova  a pretty Bulgarian girl, who had lo  have an interpreter to understand  the marriage ceremony, was married  in Spokane by Justice of the Peace  S. C. Hyde to E. C. Ivanhoff, a  prosperous farmer of Spokane  Bridge, Wash. The bride is 20  and the groom   32.     Ivanhoff,   who  Hangman Likes His Work  While Charles Gibson was await-  ing the final decision ofthe cabinet  at Ottawa, Hangman Ellis, who  will hang Bruno Curti at Nelson on  January 8, arrived in Toronto fully  prepared to carry out his part of  the contract, says a Toronto' paper.  He reached the city from Prince  Rupert, where he has been spending the summer, and registered at  one of the leading hotels under an  assumed name.  "Thib i.**. always my policy," said  Ellis to a newspaper man. . "I  travel in a quiet sort of way and  discuss matters of current interest,  but my identity is seldom discovered." t       -  At this juncture the official executioner produced a baggage check  for a satchel containing the paraphernalia which he uses in connection with the execution of 'a condemned man.  "It is just possible that I will  not have to unpack the satchel," he  said, "because it will not be the  first time that I have had to do so  at the eleventh hour and forty-ninth  second. If the cabinet has decided to commute the sentence in  this case, it is certainly contrary to  my expectations.  , "If I am permitted to carry out  my part of the contract," said Ellis,  I have been the official' executioner  at 307 hangings.  "What are your feelings when  called upon to pull the trap?" asked  the reporter.  "It is a humane duty," responded  Ellis.     "In the ordinary way of per-  ���forming   the   duty I    have  always  made a business to   obliterate   sympathy or sense of feeling     The   execution, occupies a matter   of about  50 seconds, in   fact   the condemned  man   has   but little time to    think.  When I spring the trap my   mind is  relaxed and I have the  feeling  that  I am 10 years  younger.     I  do   not  allow sympathy   to   interfere   with  my official duty, and if  others   balk  at doing if, I always feel that I   am  justified in  performing   the task.     I  have alwayk figured   that  it  is   the  best to carry out the execution with  the greatest rapidity after   the   condemned   man- has   taken   his   place  upon the trap door."
