Alice Arm Wins
Fast Hockey Game
I Anyox Mine Club Loses with
a Score of 9-2
In the second hockey game of ,the
season between the Anyox Mine
Club and Alice Arm* which was
played on the Alice Arm Arena, on
Sunday last, the home team came
out winners with a score of 9-2,
and demonstrated to the visitors
that the stick handling brigade of
the little mining town at the head
of the Arm, are an aggregation uot
to be dispised.
Due to the rains of the two
previous days, the ice was a trifle
heavy, and the game was somewhat delayed until the ice wass
cleaned off. Anyox' played the
same team which beat Alice Arm
a few weeks ago, with the exception of Carlson, who replaced
Dooley Deane in the forward line.
Alice Arm also played the same
team, with, the exception of Roy
Clothier* who was a visitor in town.
Whjle Roy did not go the whole
game, not being in conditio^, he
[rendered splendid service to the
lome team, relieving Oatman and
F. W. Falconer, and proved to
everyone that he is no novice at the
*ame. • '
i Both teams were rearin' to go
yhen the whistle blew, and go they
jlid. Anyox notched the first score
jvhen Carlson from- a pass by
Ployart. slipped the puck past Ross
ifter four' minutes of ding doiig
tattling. Alice Arm returned the
ompliment within the next minute
ivhen Oatman tied the score with
ji.hot one, followed by another a
ew minutes later. Al. Falconer then
Ook a crack at 'the Anyox goal, and
|ave Stubbs the job of again fish-
rig the puck out of: the net for the
iiird time. Both teams were
;laying a fast high-powered game,
,nd it was evident to the visitors
;hat they would have to hustle if
Jioy* were going to hold the local
fleam in check. They rose to the
jeeasion, and Anderson scored
mother goal, which made theso6re
it the end of the period 3-2 in favor
of Alice Arm.
Due to the hard praotice of the
previous weeks, Alice Arm were
low getting .warmed up, and were
litting their stride in great' shape,
'during the second period they
fjiled on three more goals, and at
ihe same time rendered the Visitors
powerless to score Oatman scored
two mpre goals during the period,
me of which was a pass from Roy
plothier.      Al.    Falconer,   added
Knottier, and everything was fine
nd rosy.
The fast pace set by their opponents was beginning to be felt by
'he Anyox team,. Anderson and,
'loyart showed flashes of their aid
ime speed, but the team lacked
'ombiiiation. T. W. Falconer was

Granby Co. May
Acquire Property
Negotiating for Big Property
of Canada Copper Company
at Princeton
If negotiations which have been
pending in New York for some
time are successful, one of the
largest deals in Canadian Mining
history will be consumated in the
acquisition by tho Granby Company
of the Canada Copper Corporation
at Princeton, says E. A. Haggen
in the Vancouver. Province. -   -
The proposal includes increasing
the capital of the Granby Company from twenty-five to fifty
million dollars and will mean the
active development of the mine on;
Copper Mountain, one of the jar-'
gest known deposits in the worldj
with the employment of a large
force of men. '
In round figures Granby shareholders are asked to pay at present
New York Stock Exchange valuation $3,750,000 for the properties
it is proposed to acquire, and the
shareholders will vote on the
question at a special meeting t6 be
shortly held in New York.
Of its original issue of 250,000
shares, Granby has 189,994 outstanding, leaving 60,000 in, the
treasury, which would „ hot be
enough to acquire Canada Copper.
The Canada Copper Corporation
is the last of the series of reorganizations by the Hayden-Stbne
interests of New York' of what
was originally the B. C. Copper
Company Limited.
At each reorganization the shareholders were asked to take up new
shares, and recently a circular wa^
issued repeating the process, or in
the alternative, advising them
that the (property would be foreclosed on account ofthe bondholders. The shareholders were
evidently tired of being
continuously asked to put up more
money, and the last request fell flat.
Action was therefore taken to
realize the property by the trustees,
and a deal was arranged by which
the property should be conveyed to
the Granby Company in exchange
for 155,000 shares of Granby, the
bondholders evidently having
agreed to exchange their bonds on
this basis. Granby shares have a
par value of $100,' but the market
value at present is around $25.'
Granby now has a capitalization
of $25*000,000. The shareholders
are being asked to authorize at the
coming meeting the doubling ofthe
capital to $50,000,000, the shares
to be alloted to the trustees for the
Canada Copper Corporation bondholders being provided for- frwn the
inorease, and in addition the.
Granby Company undertakes to
provide from its new share issue
$800,000 to oomplete the equipment
of the mill at Allenby and plaoe the
New Gymnasium
at Anyox Opened
Some Good Basketball
Games Being Played
M,uch interest; is being shown' in
basket-ball. Many teams being in
for the different leagues and large
| audiences turning out for every
game. " This in itself justifies the
building of a gymnasium.
The formal opening of the gym.
took place on February 8th. When
an oldftime "Klondike Night" was
put on and everybody had an
opportunity to try their 'luck at
their favorite game, faro, chuek-a-
liick, etc. Prizes were presented
to those winning the largest amount
during the evening. *
The gymnasium building erected
by the A. 0. L. is now completed
and is a' credit to the Community.
The building is 40 ft. by 90 ft. aud
the floor proper is 67 ft. by 38 ft.,
being marked off for basket-ball,
badminton and tennis. There are
dressing rooms for ladies and gentlemen with the necessary showers; at
one end there is a gallery for the
spectators and the lockers are also
situated there.      t / • ■ '

Mr. Taylor has Option
to Sell Dolly Varden
Mr. W. J. E. Taylor, of the
Taylor Mining Company has secured a option for one year, from Geo.
Wingfield and associates, tosell the
Dolly Varden and Wolf mines. If
Mr. Taylor is successful in disposing]
of the properties he will be able to
settle all accounts with the creditors of the Taylor Mining Company
and Mr. Wingfield will also receive
the money due to him, in faof a
sale of the properties will clarify
the whole situation.
Under the circumstances, it is
problematic whether Mr. Wingfield
and associates will develop the
property this year, or leave it as it
now stands in anticipation of sale.
Mr. Taylor has no Authority to
work the property but merely an
option to sell.
A Good Turn
A farmer who was taking a stroll
in his orchard saw a little fellow
under an apple tree with an apple
in his hand. "What do, you mean
stealing my apples?" inquired the
farmer. "Please, sir," said the boy.
trembling with fear, it fell down
and. I intended to put it -up again."
Provision is also made in the new
capital stock for conversion of the
outstanding bond issue of Granby.
A first-class concentrating mill
mill was built arid equipped, with
a present capacity of 2,000 tons a
 ,^______       aay< and provision for doubling the
property on an   operation  basis. ]Capaoity at a future time.
Logging Camps for
Alice Arm
Prospects for  Industry are
Exceptionally Bright
,' The logging industry of Alice
Arm, promises this year to: over-
/shadow the mining ipdustry, unless
the big mines are bonducting extensive operations.
The Trethewey logging camp on
the Kitsault flats are proceeding
rapidly with the preliminary work.
The railway'trestle is now completed, and the work of laying steel
has now commenced. ,.Two or
three dumping grounds will be
built, so that logs can be dumped
into' the salt chuck. The trestle
will be extended a few hundred
feet at a later date, which work
will be done with a pile driver.
Falling and hauling of logs'* will
commence next week, so that piles
for the trestle arid booming ground
can be procured. It is expected
that logging operations will be in
full .swing sometime next month,
arid between 50 and 60 men will
be employed throughout next
summer.     '\
The Oranhy Consolidated Miniijg
Sriielting & Power Co., Liid^'have
decided to log off a number of their
limits this year at the head of
Alice Arm, and operations will be
carried on on a 'comparatively
large scale.   . s
The logging will be done by the]
North Coast Spruce Mills, Ltd.
who operated the saw mill at Larkum Island, for the Granby Co.
3 years ago. Fred Miller will be
in charge of all operations, and. a
cofrimenceriient vvil} shortly be
made at) the quartz' quarry camp,
a short distance down the inlet.
The. Granby Co. own a large number of timber limits on both sides
of ■ Alice Arm. They also own
limits joining the ground of J. E.
Trethewey, where logging operations are now being carried on,
as well as up the Kitsault and Illiance River Valleys. Should they
decide to log all these limits, Alice
Arm will-be a busy camp for a
number of years to come, irrespective of the mining industry.
Logging operations are now in
full swing at the camp near Silver
City, operated by the Alice Arm
Freighting Co., and a small crew
of   men    are   being   employed.
Horses and logging sleds are used
for hauling  the logs out of the
woods, and some fine spruce logs
are being taken out.
Chas. and Ed. Gustaffson will
commence work next week getting
bsA 75 piles for Fred Miller. These
piles will be used for repair work
at the Anyox wharfs. The shortest piling will be 60 feet in length
ana the longest 100 feet.
C. P. Riel is at present busy preparing cahip at a point near Way
Point. He will commenoe logging
operations as soon as the camp is

impress upon holders of 1923 and 1924
Victory Bonds the necessity of selling
at the prevailing prices, and re-invest

stocks. Reginald McKenna, Chairman
of London's greatest bank, is (if the
opinion that Stirling will go to par in
six months, and that the Dominions
can borrow in London on a 4 1-2 pei1-
eent. basis. This means that in all
probability Canada will borrow the
money in Loudon to pay off the 1923
loan atinaturity November 1st. next.
This indicates lower interest rates in
the near future. Sell 1923 Victory

Fast Hockey Game

their individual rushes time .and
again, and all efforts to score came
to nought. As the game progressed Alice Arm improved, and the
Anyox defence simply could not
pope with • the brilliant combination of the speedy forwards.
Their stickhandling, checking jarid
shooting, was all that could be
desired, and the fans went wild
with delight at the brilliant, flashy
play of their favorites. But while
Alice Arm outclassed the visitors,
the game was interesting to watch
as the players on both teams were
travelling at top speed all the time.
The score at the close of the second
period was Alice Arm 6, Anyox 2»
In the third period, Alice Arm
again scored three goals, while
Anyox failed to find the net. Al.
Falconer opened the score with a
hot shot, from a pass by T. W.
Falconer.    Gus Anderson soored
with a drive from right wing, and
Oatman rang down the- curtain
with a cyclonic drive from centre,
Stubbs was bombarded with shots
from all arigles throughout- the
period, and but for his superb goal
keeping qualities, the score, would
have been much heavier. Boss in
goal for Alice Arm, had a comparatively quiet time, but was always
there to do the necessary when
required. The final score was:
Alice Arm 9, Anyox 2.
Perhaps the most outstanding
feature of the game from a purely
local standpoint, was the combination of the entire Alice Arm team.
Several times they broke away
with beautiful 'three-men rushes
and scored. The visitors were no
doubt leg weary from lack of
practice, and the next game to be
played may have an entirely different ending.  -    '
Following is how the teams lined
Anyox: goal, Stubbs; defence,
