Prince Rupert Prove
Victorious in Basketball
Gaines
Anyox basketball teams are
finding a hard nut to crack in the
Prince Rupert players. On
Thursday evening, of last week
the looal ladies met the Prince
Rupert Maple Leafs at the looal
Gym. and lost by the score of 10
to 5.
The game was fast throughout
and a large and enthusiastic crowd
were treated to a good game of
basketball, even if their favorites
did not win.
The teams were:
Anyox: Miss S. Calderone, Miss
J. Calderone. Miss J. Moffatt, Miss
R. Moffatt, Miss S. Deane, Mrs.
Winnerstrqm.
Prince Rupert: Miss M.Graham
Miss L, Frizzell, Miss M. Harvey,
Miss L. Lowe, Miss A. Stephens,
Referee:   Mr. F. Brown.
At the conclusion of the game, a
dance was given in honor of the
visitors, and in this sport the men
also took part.
In order to give the visitors as
much enjoyment as possible, the
captain of the Prince George kindly held the big boat in port an
extra hour, 'a courtesy that was
greatly appreciated by both visitors
*uid hosts.
6-' On Thursday evening of this
week the Sons of Canada team
were the visitors from Prince
Rupert.
They met the Smelter team and
the large crowd present were treated to one of the fastest and most
exciting games staged at the local
Gjm.
The teams were evenly matched
and it was anybody's game until
the final whistle blew, when the
Prince Rupert team were declared
the winners by one basket, The
score being 31 to 30 in favor oi the
Sons of Canada.
These friendly games between
the two towns goes a long way to
encourage good basketball, and it
is hoped that it will be possible to
stage more of these games before
the close of the season.
Piles of Freight For Alice
Arm These Days
No greater proof is wanted that
Alice Arm is in for a boom year,
than when the S. S. Cardena last
Monday was unloading freight as
fast as the winches could operate,
for over six hours.
Tons of general freight poured
from the holds in a stream, followed by huge piles of lumber for
building purposes, and fourteen
tons of boom chains were unloaded
for the Abbotsford Logging Co.
Twenty tons of ice were also unloaded for W. A. Wilson of the
Alice Arm Meat Market.
On Tuesday the S. S. Chilkoot
docked and unloaded 30.000 feet of
lumber for the Eitsault River
bridge.
Alice Arm Holds Lively
Debate
The debate held on Tuesday
evening at the Anglican Church,
threatened at the commencement
to end iu a fizzle, but when well
under way proved to be a sizzle,
that is, to those who desire vaudeville mixed with these affairs.
The subject under discussion was
"Resolved that the most successful
business men are not strictly
honest." Speakers in the affirmative, were: S. F. D. Roe, G. W.
Bruggy, C. Drennan. Negative:
J. A. Stephen, T. W. Falconer, E.
Moss.
Of the six advertised speakers
for the evening, only two lion-
hearted orators were on hand to
expound their views to the crowded house. Eager aspirants for
oratical honors were, however,
present and the situation was
saved.
The Chair was ably filled by Mr.
Al. Miller, who ruled the speakers
with an iron hand, allowing no one
to depart from the rulos governing
debates.
Both sides gave a series of wonderful speeches, points bristling
a la porcupine when attacked by a
hungry husky. Especially so were
the arguments put up by the leaders, S. F. D. Roe and J. A.
Stephen.
After the audience had voted,
the counting of the ballots revealed
the fact that the affirmatives had
won by the narrow margin of two
votes.
At the conclusion,, the Chairman
gave a short to-the-point address,
and thus ended a two hours entertainment.

Logging Preparations at
Alice Arm
News gleaned from the different
logging camps shows that preparation work is steadily progressing.
The Granby Co. have commenced
to shovel snow from the Dolly
Varden railway track in plac
where it is too deep to permit
transportation, in order to faciliate
the hauling of lumber for camp
construction. As soon as the track
is clear lumber will be hauled to
the camp site, and the buildings
rushed to completion.
Clearing of land for the oamp on
the Kitsault flats is now under
way, a donkey engine being engaged in pulling stumps. Another
engine is hauling up buildings on a
float from the water to the camp
site, aud lumber for other buildings
is being hauled from scows. As
soon as camps are completed, and
quarters found for men, the Granby
Co. will commence logging in earnest.
Mr. W. M. Meehan returned
from a short trip to Anyox yesterday and stated that two pile
drivers would arrive on Sunday
and commence driving piles for a
booming ground and an approach
to the Dolly Varden railway track.
Work on Kitsault Bridge is
Progressing
All piles are now driven for the
tower and approach on the east
bank of the Kitsault river at the
bridge site, and the pile driver will
now be moved to the west side.
Timbers are all framed for the
towers, and holes dug for concrete
in which to set the anchor bolts for
holding the cables.
Anyox Concentrator Ready
The installation of machinery
and equipment at the Concentrating Mill is practically complete.
It is neceosary, however, to do considerable adjusting in order to get
the various units synchronized
with each other before full operations can be carried on successfully.
The orushing plant has been
operated succesffully, and in all
probability the entire plant will be
in operation before the end of the
month.
ANYOX NOTES
charge of logging operations for
the Granby Co. spent a few days
in town this week, returning to
Alice Arm yesterday.
Mr. H. Speight, superintendent
of the electrical derartment, arrived
in town on Monday from an extended trip.
Old Sol has been extremely generous to us of late, so much so,
that he is arousing the spirit of the
outdoor pleasure seekers. Already
we notice a number of small craft
appearing along the waterfront,
and each day brings increased
activity among the looal boat
owners. One of the latest additions being the "Chum" owned by
Messrs Asimus and Scott, which
after extensive alterations executed
by the owners has the appearance
of a very roomy, staunch and seaworthy oraft.
The tenuis artists are also looking with eager eyes in the direction
of the tennis courts, but alas, they
are still slumbering beneath a
mantle of snow.
When you require printing of any
kind the up-to-date plant of the
Herald can gratify your wishes.
Our work is right, our prices are
right, and delivery is prompt.

Pyramiding of Taxes
In the interest of the poor man
as well as the rich man there
should be a revision downwards of
taxes, The present system of taxation results in pyramiding, and the
consumer is the one that pays.
Don't think that because you are
not paying direct taxes that you are
exempt. The producer of raw
material is forced to charge a
higher price for his goods to meet
his increased taxes. The manufacturer is bound to do likewise if
he is to exist. The wholesaler, if
he is to stay in business, must
increase his profit. The transportation companies are in the same
boat, and the retail merchants must
charge more on their goods to
make up their increased operating
expenses, due to higher taxes.
This is pyramiding taxes, and the
consumer pays them all. He pays
the taxes of the producer and all
the middlemen who handle the
goods. The lowering of taxation
would have the effect, of diverting
into public industry huge piles of
money that are at present invested
in tax, exemption securities, with
the result that there would be more
work and lower cost of living for
everyone, and greater prosperity to
the country.
The B. C. Electric Railway
Company of Vancouver, payed
last year, $723,801 in taxes, which
includes municipal, federal and
provincial. The company points
out in the "Buzzer," a phamplet
published by them, that the travelling public, users of gas and power
are those that foot the bill, as taxes
go up, rates also must go up, or a
return on investment cut down.
Both results are the same, because
if the return to the investor is
reduced, capital is discouraged
from further investment, and the
country suffers.
The present tax system works
in a vicious circle, from which there
is no escape.
B. C. Mineral
Production Increasing
At the banquet concluding the
convention of the British Columbia
Division of the Canadian Institute
of Mining and Metallurgy, held in
Vancouver on February 13th. 14th.
and the 15th, the Hon. Wm. Sloan
Minister of Mines in the provincial
Government, delivered the following optimistic and constructive
address on the mining situation in
British Columbia and the government attitude towards it.
Following is a small portion of
the speech:
"The year 1923 was a banner
year for the standing of mining in
British Columbia. The monetary
value of the mineral output for the
year is estimated to have been $39,-
699,758, as against $35,153,843 for
1922, an increase of $4,540,915 or
12.8 per cent. In 1921 the production was valued at $28,066,641, so
that in the two years there has
been an advance equal to forty-one
per cent.
"More placer gold, copper, lead
and zinc were produced in British
Columbia last year than in the
previous twelve months, and that
there were decreases only in respect
of lode gold and silver. But the
increases so far outweigh the
decreases that the latter may be
left for brief reference later on.
Copper has jumped from 32,000.000
to 50,000.000. This has been done
despite an uncertain market, the
result of industrial aud social conditions on the continent. This
satisfactory performance is due to
the resumption of production by
the Britannia Mining Company on
Howe Sound, a few miles from the
cjty of Vancouver.
As to the lead and zinc, it is
found that they have gone ahead
in the period of a year to the
extent of 6,500,000 pounds and
about 5,000,000 respectively.
Dunwell Mine Will
Not Be Sold
Portland Canal News
Developments at
the Dunwell Mine continue to
be most satisfactory, According
to a statement given out recently
to the press of the south by Mr.
Robert M. Stewart the company
have decided not to dispose of the
mine, but will retain it and operate
it themselves. This came as rather
a surprise, as it is known that several large operating companies
have for months past been negotiating with a view to acquiring it.
and in view of this it was generally
supposed that it would eventually
be turned to the one making the
best offer. No. 4 tunnel .will soon
be started, there no doubt in the
minds of the management and
others who know the property, that
the ore continues to considerable
depth.

Dear Editor:
I notice an article in your issue of
February 23rd. stating that the North
Star  is   owned    by   Mr.  Eresch  of
Kansas, and associates, and that they
intend to do development work this
year.   This is not correct.   Mr. Eresch
does  not own the North Star, the
North Star is owned by myself and
associates.
Mr. Eresch did have un option on
the North Shu* in 1023, but that option
was dropped.

Production During last ten years, $339,280,940
Lode-mining has only been in progress for about 33 years, and not 20 per cent of the Province has been
even prospected; 300,000 square miles of unexplored mineral bearing land are open for prospecting.
The Mining Laws of this Province are more liberal and the fees lower than those of any other Province
in the Dominion, or any Colony in the British Empire,
Mineral locations are granted to discoverers for nominal fees.
Absolute Titles are obtained by developing suoh properties, security of which is guaranteed by
Crown Grants.

British Columbia
Forging Ahead
British Columbia will have a
population of 700,000 by 1931 and
a million people by 1941 at the rate
of increase shown by the last census
over the previous one, With a
complete change in the currents of
world trade and world migrations,
no one may prophesy as to the distant future or how much these
figures may be outrun.
We now have six out of every
hundred people in Canada, living in
this province, compared with half
that portion in 1901, so we are certainly more than holding our own
in Dominion growth.
Because British Columbia is not
an agricultural province, it is most
natural that sixty out of every
hundred of our people live in the
cities and towns. Greater Vancouver, New Westminister and Victoria
account for forty-six out of every
hundred of our population, and
Vancouver will contain an increasingly large proportion for in
modern times the larger cities are
the magnets for the immigrants and
for those who have been living on
the land.
Gold Mining in
Northern Ontario
Stobie, Forlong & Co., members
of Toronto Stock Exchange, have
recently issued a splendid prepared
edition of gold mines in Ontario,
contaning authentic* facts concerning the greatest gold producer on
the North American continent. Of
the great Hollinger mine, it says
that production to date has been
approximately $65,000,000, all from
above the 800 foot level; that
present milling capacity is 4,500
tons daily and is being gradually
increased to 8,000 tons; that a conservative estimate places the average grade of ore at $8.53 per ton;
that total costs in 1922 reached
$<r,25 per ton and that net current
assets are $7,000,000. Concerning
Dome mines, it is said that workings have been carried to a vertical
depth of 1,650 feet; that there are
about 35 miles of underground
workings; that total production
has been about $20,000,000 and
that 1250 tons, of a grade around
$11 per ton, is now being milled.
Space is devoted to Melntyie,
Porcupine-Davidson, Vipond Consolidated, Crown Beserve, Lake
Shore, Teck- Hughs and many other
well-known properties. A statistic
table shows that at present price of
stock, valuation upon Hollinger is
$58,000,000; Dome, $19,375,000 aud
Mclntyre, $14,000,000.
Immigration is Increasing
It is interesting to note that
Canadian immigration, while uot
assuming large figures, is still comparatively rapid increasing. For
instance, for the 10 months ending
January 1924,129,022 immigrants
of all nationalities have entered
Canada. For. the same period in
the previous year, 62.849 persons
entered, an increase of over 100%.
You can't keep a good man down.
Jonah and a jellyfish found themselves in the basement of a whale.
Jonah took the first elevator going
up—the jellyfish stayed there.
Where is This Town
My friends have you heard of the town
of "Yawn,"
On the banks of the river "Slow.''
Where the   sometimeorother  scents
the air,
And the soft "Goeasys" grow?
It lies in the valley of Whatistneuse,"
In the province of "Let'erslide;"
That tired feeling is native there-—
Where the "Put-it-onV abide.

With the scream of locomotive
and donkey engine whistles, together with the crash of falling
timber, as the giants of the woods
hit the ground, the roar of blasting
from the Esperanza and Esperanza
Extension, the scream of Al. Falconer's sawmill and the busy
scenes around quickly dispels any
doubts the stranger may hold
about this being a one-horse town.
