Association Give Brilliant
Masquerade Ball
On Monday February llth. the
Anyox Parent-Teacher Association held a Masquerade Dance in
the Recreation Hall, which proved
to be a brilliant success both from
the standpoint of attendance and
interest shown. The costumes were
so numerous and so remarkable for
their beauty, their ingenuity, and
their humor that one evening was
far too short in which to survey
them all. Parents, teachers, courtiers and clowns, nymphs and negroes, with hoboes and Hindoos,
gallant gentlemen and gypsies, etc.
etc,,all cavorted together in a riot
of fun, the good people of Anyox
thus throwing, for the nonce, all
dignity to the winds. _ i
The greatest credit is due Mrs.
Eve. the Convenor of all Committees, for the results achieved. The
music which left nothing to be
desired, was furnished by Messrs.

venard, clariuet; Varnes, euphonium and Cameron, drums, with the
skilled assistance ofthe Anyox baud
The approval of all was accorded

National Hockey Game
at Alice Arm
On Sunday afternoon the Alice
Arm Skating Arena was the scene
of a thrilling encounter, when the
decendants of the old Scandinavian
Vikings dosed with the Canucks in
mortal battle.
For three periods tbe battle raged
and so close was the score and evenly
matched the teams that no oue
could fortell who were to be the
victors of this unstained bloodstained battle until tbe final whistle
brought relief to the tired players
and the Canadians were declared
[jwinners by one goal.
It was" the general opinion of the
[fans that this was the fastest and
most interesting game played on the
local rink for many a long day.
Both teams played a wonderful
game in striving to uphold their
.national honor, but young,
'Canada was just a little too good
for the stalwart sons of Scandinavia
During the 1st. period both teams
scored two goals. At the end of
2nd. period the score was Canada
5, Scandinavia 4. At the end of
the game the score was 6-5 in favor
of the Canadians.
The teams were: Canadians, goal

Last week we published a report
of operations of the Premier mine
for 1923 and commented on the
article in our editorial columns.
This week we publish a report of
the operations of the Granby Co's.
big Anyox plant, and we comment
on the report published this week.
The big Hidden Creek mine at
Anyox has not made such a spectacular display as the Premier.
The Premier is, to a considerable
extent, a mine producing high
grade ore, while the Hidden
Creek mine is a low grade property, and being low grade, an
immense tonnage must be produced
each year in order to keep the
plant operating. Big tonnage and
a short haul to smelter or mill for
treatment, is necessary when mining low grade ore. When mining
high grade, the ore is very often
shipped to some other district or
country for treatment, and a large
industry is thus lost, but in mining
low grade ore, such as is mined at
Hidden Creek, a large industry' is
established, providing work and
distributing wealth in the district
which is entitled to it. The
Granby Consolidated Mining,
Smelting & Power Co., Ltd. were
the first mining Co. to successfully
operate in the Northern B. C.
coast district. Before the first
furnace was blown in, in March
1914, they had spent millions of
dollars on construction work, and
have spent millions since.' They
have paid out millions of dollars in
wages, and more millions in material, and will spend millions more
in the future. They employ from
1100 to 1300 men the year round
and the wealth acquired by their
employees is distributed throughout
the entire province. All these
millions of dollars are derived from
a bunch of low grade copper ore,
which the Granby Co. are transforming into wealth for the benefit
of mankind.
It is always amusing, if sometimes
exasperating, to hear men of restricted focus discuss the merits or demerits of a newspaper. They cannot
disassociate the newspaper from
the individual at its head. They
cannot conceive such a thing as the
newspaper having a distinct entity i
quite apart from the individual or
individuals owning it. And they
get the idea that because of certain
personal considerations between
them the voice of the newspaper
should be raised in their praise or
againsttheindividualorthat. They
fail utterly to see or appreciate the
public viewpoint from whioh the
newspaper must look at things and
individuals, apart from the personal
element that must enter in some
degree. And the further amusing
part of it is that no amount of explanation will explain.—Okanagan
Kitsault Valley
The Editor,
The Herald,
Alice Arm, B. C.
Dear Sir:
In regard to your editorial of a few
ago about the Kitsault road situation,
I was struck by the vagueness and uncertainty contained in that issue. It
surely is deplorable that the situation
exists, that the life blood of a promising mining centre such as the Alice
Arm district has to rely on. no more
promise than that contained in your
article. Is it not possible to get some
information regarding that railroad,?
Who owns the railroad and what are
they going to do about it.? Are they
going to let it remain idle another
year and then And it past redemption.?
Is it fair to the investor that has put
his good money into the district, on
the strength of the railroad, that it
should be allowed to become obsolete,
while the government is spending
thousands in other parts of the province for joy roads.? Would it. not be
good business to look after this particular proposition, and at least keep it
in repair.? Your civic boards and
your member who lives there, should
realize the seriousness ofthe situation,
Do you know if your district mining
engineer has looked into the matter,
and if it is not part of his duty, or just
what is his particular duty.? As the
situation exists, is it to be expected
that any outside capital can become
interested in that section, with no
outlet for their operations. HoWeve'r,
the time has now come for, a showdown between the people of Atlin
district and the government "with a
view of maintaining the road bed
that interested parties in the district
might make common use of it in the
development and operation of their
holdings. I think it is up to them to
keep faith with the prospector and
investor as measured against the
tourist and joy rider of other parts of
the province.

Prince Rupert vs. Anyox
Following, is a more detailed
account of the Prince Rupert-
Auyox game than we published
last week.
Owing to the late arrival of the
boat, basketball fans kept late hours
on Thursday last week when Prince
Rupert after a'very close and exciting game with score at 35-32 came
out victorious had it all their own
way in the first Half, but the locals
found their stride in the second
and played the* opposition to a
standstill. MitohellandBalforewere
the outstanding stars for the visitors, Mitohell had the misfortune to
break his nose in the second half,
and was forced to retire being replaced 6. Mitohell. Hall, playing
centre for Anyox was foroed out of
the game in the early part of* the
second half via the four personal
foul route, and was followed by
Bob Stewart a few minutes later
for the same offence. Greenwell
replaced Stewart and Geo. Lee went
on for Hall.
Harry Down,. Fred Brown and
Hall played well for the locals.
Harry Down was easily the outstanding star.

Attention is called by Hon. Wm.
