Alice Arm Hockey
League Enters An
Interesting Stage
The looal Hookey League of
Alice Arm has now reaohed an exciting stage. The Wildoats are
leading, but their position is far
from secure.
The weather during the past
week has been extremely favorable
for hockey, and three excellent
games have been played. All
three teams have shown a marked
improvement in their play, and the
fans have been treated to some
real fast games.
On Monday evening the Wildcats and Tigers, endeavoured to
devour each other for three thrilling periods. At the close of the
first period, the score stood 3-3.
In the secoud period the Wildcats
drove the puck into the net three
times, and at the same time held
the Tigers scoreless. The third
period saw the teams evenly
matched, both teams scoring a
goal and the game ended with the
the score standing, Wildcats 7,
Tigers 4.
' The teams were: Wildcats, F. D.
Rice, goal; A. D. Yorke, H. Fowler,
Gus Anderson, 0. Warner.
Tigers: P. Williamson, goal; T.
W. Falconer, G. Young, M. Smith,
E. Moss.
On Wednesday evening, the
Tigers and Bears, met in what Was
considered by both players and
fans, as the best game of the season. The ice was in first-class
condition, and both teams played
a clean, speedy game.
Both teams were out to win, and
the fast pace set at the commencement was kept up until the final
whistle blew, and both teams
were not sorry when the welcome
sound was heard, as the terrific
pace was beginning to be felt.
In the lirst period the Tigers
placed the rubber in the net three
times, while the Bears located the
net twice.
The second period was the
Tigers, who scored three more,
while the Bears failed to locate
the narrow opening.
In the third period both teams
found the net twice and the game
closed with the score standing,
Tigers 8, Bears 4.
The Bears played a hard and
hustling game throughout, they
had hard luck In not scoring more
goals, They came close to scoring
a whole flock, but the good work
of Williamson in goal, and the
Tigers' defense denied them of
victory. i
The teams were: Tigers, P.
Williamson, goal: T. W. Falconer,
G. Young, M. Smith, E. Moss.
Bears: W. Wells, goal; R. F.
McGinnis, H. F. Kergin, Al Falconer, J. Wilson.
W. M. Cummings refereed all
three games.
Yesterday evening, the Bears
and Wildcats mixed things.
Throughout the whole game it
was a ding-dong   battle up and

Sometimes during the mid
winter period of the year, we tire
of life in the small town and long
for the bright lights of the city
with its theatre crowds and its
hustle and roar. Both the city
and the small town has its advantages and disadvantages, but
taking everything into consideration, and weighing them well in
the balance the advantages of
the small town are far greater than
the city. In the small town, everyone knows everyone else, and
shares in each other's joys and
sorrows. In times of distress
everyone willingly helps their
neighbour, and a bond of friendship is cemented that is indestruct-
able. We do not have the sorry
spectacle of thousands of unemployed, practically facing starvation, nor does anyone have to
appeal to public charities when
hard times come. Everyone lives
at a decent standard in the small
town, and everyone has a spare
dollar in his pocket. While we
do not have the pleasure of seeing
the professional entertainers of the
world, or the top-notchers in the
sporting world, we can, if we have
a radio set, sit at home and listen
to the best musical and vocal
talent on the continent. Of sport,
we can make our own, and while
the basketball teams of Anyox or
the hockey teams of Alice Arm
may not compare with the more
experienced players of the city,
yet the fans get more real fun
watching their favorite team per-
perform, than the city person does
watching highly paid professionals,
with whom he is personally unacquainted. Due to modern inventions the tragic isolation of the
small town is gone forever,

Suit Against Premier Co.
Is Dismissed
After refusing to adjourn the
trial, Mr. Justice D. A. McDonald,
of Vancouver, dismissed the action
of Silver Ores Incorporated, Delaware vs. Premier Gold Mining
Company Limited owner of the
Premier mine near Stewart.
His lordship pointed out that
the plaintiff company was not
registered in British Columbia and
although it had 'ieen given an opportunity to accomplish this, it
had not yet done so. "It doesn't
appear to be acting in good faith,"
said Mr. Justice McDonald.
The Silver Ores complaint was
that Elijah F. Fader had transferee) to the dependents seven gold-
bearing claims which the Silver
Ores had allegedly acquired.
The defendent company had
paid Fader $13,000 for the seven
claims and had taken the precaution of investigating the title before obtaining possession.

Has produced minerals valued as follows: Placer Gold, $76,962,203; Lode Gold, $113,352,655; Silver,
$63,532,655; Lead. $58,132,661; Copper, $179,046,508; Zinc. $27,904'756; Coal and Coke, $250,968,113;
Building Stone, Brick, Cement, $39,415,234; Miscellaneous Minerals, $1,408,257; making its mineral
production to the end of 1923 show
An Aggregate Value of $810,722,782
The substantial progress of the Mining Industry in this Province is strikingly exhibited in the following
figures which show the value of production for successive five-year periods: For all years to 1895, inclusive,
$94,547,241; for five years, 1896-1900, $57,607,967; forfiveyears. 1901-1905, $96,507,968; forfiveyears, 1906

Production During last ten years, $350,288,892
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 such properties, security of which is guaranteed by
Crown Grants.

Manufacturing Plants
Needed for Our Minerals
Says Dean Brock
Canada, ranking third among
countries of the world in production of lead, fourth place in zinc
production, first in nickel and first
in asbestos, still imports far more
mineral products than she exports,
said Dean R. W. Brock, of the department of geology in the
University of British Columbia,
speaking before members of the
foreign trade bureau of the Vancouver Board of Trade and mining
men at a luncheon in the Hotel
Vancouver, recently.
"Our unfavorable trade balance
in minerals is a little greater than
our total production of raw minerals," said Dean Brook. "It is in
our manufacturing that we are behind."
In British Columbia milling represents an investment of $90,000,-
000 he pointed out. There were
240 companies, 267 plants, 12,000
men employed with an annual
wage bill of $7,000,000
Minerals represented about 17
per cent of the total exports of
Canada and about 45 'per cent of
the imports. Raw minerals exported in 1923 amounted to $37,-
000,000 and imports $105,000,000,
the latter made up principally of
coal, iron and petroleum.
Imports of manufacturerd minerals products totalled $214,000,-
v000 and. exports, $64,000,000.
The speaker pointed out that
while much might be desired in increased manufacturing of Canada's
mineral production too much
should not be expeoted of a
country with only a handful of
people seattered'over a vast area.
He reminded his hearers of the
fact that in the Sullivan mine
British Columbia has the greatest
zinc producer in the world and
that Britannia, another mine with
high world standing, is operating
almost at Vancouver's door.
This District Increases
Mineral Production For
Past Year
An efficient wife oan make up
the beds, the children's quarrels,
and her husband's mind.
Records of satisfactory mining
progress in the local districts during the past year and predictions
for continuation and extension of
this in |925 feature the annual reports of the resident mining engineer for these districts, quotations from which have been made
by the department of mines at
Victoria.
"I consider 1924 the greatest development year yet," says G. A.
Clothier of the northwestern district. "The number of properties
developing during the winter," lie
continued, "indicates even greater
activity next year. Approximate
production this year as follows:
Ore mined, 1,300,000 tons, an increase over last year 20 pel' oent.
Gold output, 175,000 ounces, an increase of 1.2 per cent.; silver output,
3,610,000 ounces, an increase of 1.0
per cent..; oopper output, 36,700,-
000 pounds, an increase of 10 per
oent.

sides found difficulty iu locating
the basket. The Rovers were conceeded the better team. The final
soore was 9-5. Buntain made all
tlie points for the winners. Gow

two, were the scorers for the
Hustlers.
The Ladies contest was between
the High School and Pioneers.
The former winning in fine style
by 16 points to 2. Jean Moffatt
was tlie outstanding star for the
winners, notching half of her
team's total. Margaret Dupuis
scored the lone tally for the losers.
The Mine romped home winners
in the Senior contest by the narrow margin of two points, tlie
score being 19 to 17. The game

winners, playing a stellar game

eight points.
The Mine's win puts them at
the top of the heap, two points
