Another day or two will witness
the dosing of the logging oamp of

12 million feet in the water. Of
this amount 85 per cent was spruce

The spruce and hemlock was sold
to the Powell Biver Paper Co. and
the cottonwood to the Laminated
Materials Co. of New Westminster.
Fourteen thousand feet of new
railway traok was laid during the
past 18 months, and a bridge 70
feet in length was also built across
the North-East Fork of the Kitsault River. From 35 to 40 men
were employed, with a monthly
payroll of $5,800.
All the railway track has been
taken up except 2,400 feet on the
tide flats. This is built on a trestle,

No Anyox News This Week
Owing to the indisposition of our
Anyox correspondent, Mr. M. J.
Sheen, with an attack of grippe,
no Anyox news arrived at the
Herald office this week. This, we
very much regret, especially as
several important news items were
awaiting publication. Our readers
can rest assured that everything
possible was done to prooure the
news, but the late announcement
made it impossible. All this week's
news will be oarried in our next

Captain E. A. Dickson and Chief
Officer Ernest Sheppard have been
exonerated from all blame in connection with the grounding of the
S. S. Catala, at a court of inquiry
held in Vancouver.
Chief Officer Sheppard was in
charge at the time the ship struck
the rocks. He stated that a mirage
existed at the time the ship struck,
which deceived the officers as to
the ship's position. As the accident happened at the height of the
tide it was also presumed that
Sparrowhawk buoy had drifted a
short distance.
The many friends of these popular
officers in the north will be pleased
to learn that they are held blameless.
Coastwise Steamship &
Barge Co. Buy More
Capt. James Griffiths of Seattle,
head of the Coastwise Steamship
& Barge Co., announces that he
has purchased the steamers El
Abeta, El Cedro and El Ciouta
from the Los Angeles Lumber Product Co. and will place them in the
ore carrying service between
Stewart and Anyox and Tacoma.
The three vessels, whioh for some
years were engaged in carrying
lumber and logs between Massett
Inlet and Seattle and other American ports, are now being drydock
ed in Los Angeles before being
turned over to the Coastwise Company to enter service on the British Columbia coast.
Capt. Griffiths also announces
the sale by the Coastwise Steamship & Barge Co. of the steamer
Griffco, long in service on this
coast, to the Inter-Island Steam
Navigation Co. of Honolulu. The
Griffco will leave Puget Sound almost immediately for Honolulu to
enter the Hawaiian inter-island
Cold Weather Prevailing
To date, this winter has been the
coldest on record, and a record
snowfall has also been experienced.
The coldest weather of the season
occurred this week, when the ther
mometer registered three below
zero. From present indications it
is very probable that the weather
will continue to get colder.
New Year Party Tonight at
Alice Arm Hotel
We are again on the threshold of
another year. Another year has
passed away, and it has not dealt
unkindly with the Anyox and Alioe
Arm distriot. Everyone has made
a living, many have increased their
savings; some have gained further
experience, and uot many have lost
ground. Abject poverty, as it is
known in the big cities is a stranger
to us, and we have a lot to be
thankful for. >
The big Anyox plant of the
Granby Co. has operated uninter-
uptedly throughout the past year,
producinga yellow stream of wealth
that creates many happy homes in
this district, and adds considerably
to the prosperity of the whole
Alice Arm has passed a successful year and while no big developments have taken place, steady
progress has been made, from
which everyone will benefit in the
years to come.
It is true that the price of all
metals were at a low ebb during
the biggest part of the year, but
all signs point to a steady increase
in price during the coining year.
The annual New Year party will
be held at the Alice Arm Hotel on
Saturday evening when the residents of Alice Arm will be the guests
of Mr. and Mrs. O. Evindson. Refreshments will be served at midnight.
National Debt Decrease
The national debt of Canada decreased by $70,189,814 in the first
half of the current fiscal year, that
is from April 1st to September 30,
Stewart Short Line May
Be Extended to Peace
It is expeoted in many quarters
that should the C. P. R, decide to
build a railway from the Peace
River Country to the coast that
they will make Stewart the terminus. During the past few-
weeks several things have pointed
to the possibility of such an event.
Following is an article published
in the Portland Canal News dealing with the matter:
' Railway construction has been
the chief topic of conversation iu
Stewart during the week. Last
Sunday the Portland Canal News
received by wireless, aud bulletined,
confirmation of the sale of the Canadian Northeastern Railway, better
known as the Portland Canal
Short Line, to English capitalists,
and the faot that finances were available for a rehabiliation of the
old road to its terminus at American creek.
'Later iu the week word came of
activities by the C. P. R. in the
Peace River section which it is expected will eventually result in
direct connection between the
great farming area and the sea-port
of Stewart.
"Dispatohes from Winnipeg, Edmonton and Vancouver all concede
that Stewart will be the western
outlet for the Peace River country,
and this consumation may be effected much sooner than even the
most optimistic have hoped for.
"According to last Sunday's mes
sage, reconditioning of the road
will start at the beginning of the
New Year, when 15 miles of line
from Stewart to Red Cliff will be
put in shape. It will be ready for
operation by August, 1928.
"This section of the road will
serve a number of mines which are
being developed in the district. It
will also be utilized as a logging
railway in connection with a sawmill to be ereoted in the vicinity of
"An extension of six miles up
Bear River will be undertaken and
finished by August. 1929. This
will serve the George Copper, Argenta, Rufus and Red Top mines.
"The present project is fully financed for 1928-29. and Hon. H.
H. Stevens is now in England in
connection with ambitious plans
which the oompany has in view.
"The company hopes, after reconditioning the first 15 miles, to

An appeal has been put forward
for forming one more Province, so
as to cover the Peace River District.
Is it necessary or even advisable?
Sometime ago the Winnipeg
"Tribune" analyzed the situation
in Canada under the title of "Too
Much Government".
Some of the figures were:
There are 905 persons engaged in
legislating, being one for every 9.74
persons. These gentlemen—and
ladies draw $2,700,000 yearly.
The Federal Parliament has 235
members and the Senate 87; these
draw $4,000 each a year; making
a total expense of $1,463,000.
Ontario, for a population of 2,
933,682 has a Legislature of III,
who draw, with the Ministers,
Quebec has two houses, with
24 and 81 members respectively,
who draw $279,000.
Nova Scotia has 21 members
drawing $1,500 and 43 drawing
$750; this gives a total of $63,400,
exclusive of Ministers.
New Brunswick has 48 members drawing $73,000.
Prince Edward Island has 30
members drawing $15,800, exclusive of Ministers.
Alberta has 60 members drawing $175,500.
British Columbia has 47 members drawing $ 148,500.
The members of Saskatchewan
draw $131,200; and those of
Manitoba, $118,500.
To these figures must be added
the expenses of the Lieutenant-
Governors and their staffs, as well
as the officials of the Parliament
and Legislatures.
The Peace River is exceedingly
prosperous, but why load the cost
of a separate Provincial Government on it?
A wise move is that towards
uniting the three Maritime Provinces, and thus curtailing the heavy
burden they have to bear.
Curtailment of governmental expense is far wiser than adding to

dividend of $3,176,381 to its shareholders on January 1.
This is at the rate of 5 per cent,
on its issued capitalization of $12,-

on the 508,221 shares issued.

ended Deoember 3rd. This dividend and another of approximately
equal size, declared by the company
for the first half of the year, will
make the largest paid by a mining
and smelting company of the
Northwest, it is believed here,
being at the rate of 10 per cent,
for the year with a $10 bonus.
Premier Dividends Are
The usual quarterly dividend of
$400,000 will be paid by the Premier Gold Mining Company on Jan
nary 4. This will bring the grand
total of dividend payments to $11,

has been a movement of Premier

is stated ou good authority that
about 2,000,000 shares are now

holds over eight thousand shares.
When the stock reached $40 in
Montreal the profits for the pool
amounted to $200,000 since the
stock started to soar.
The total profits are much greater than the amount mentioned
because the stock was bought a
year ago when selling around three

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.
Practically all British Columbia Mineral Properties upon whioh development work has been done
are described ill some one of the Annual Reports of the Minister of Mines. Those considering
mining investments should refer to such reports. They are available without oharge on applicatiou

animals in England, Scotland,
France and Belgium. They include
the famous "Lord Willingdon," for
which Mr. McCallum paid $10,000.
The horses will be sold throughout

Canadians would be cor«;derably
surprised if they were given full details of the British investment going into Canadian channels at the

Peacock, director of the Bank of
England and of the Canadian Pacific Railway. The Britisher does
not seek publicity in his business
deals, he stated, with the result that
large sump of money were often
placed in the Dominion and never
heard of. A case in point he mentioned was the investment of himself and five other capitalists of
£200,000 in timber interests in British Columbia five years ago, and
upon the success of the venture the
further investment of £300,000.

H. Stevens and W. A. Lewth-
waite and tlieir London backers
seem to have stirred others into
activity. A dispatch from Winni
peg says:
"It is understood here that the
C. P. R. has offered $30,000,000
to the Alberta government for
the Edmonton Dunvegan and
Great Waterways railways, with
its 990 miles of track.
"President E. W. Beatty, K. C, of
of the C. P. R., is on his way west
to Edmonton.
"Purchase of the E. D. and G. W.
railway will give the C. P R. con
trol of the whole of northern Alberta, and it is understood the
company plans to oarry the line
through to Stewart.
"Sir Henry Thornton is understood to have offered Alberta the
physical valuation of the railways,
which would amount to the same
as tbe C. P. R. offer, but in this
plan Sir Henry has been opposed
by the minister of railways, Hon.
Chas. Dunning, who favors C. P. R.
"Those who are familiar with the
situation claim that the outcome of
this big fight for the northern
country will be an outstanding
event in the history of the west."

Smoothing the Path of Princes
When Princes of the Blood Royal
visit their Dominions Overseas they
have to go through a great number of
ceremonies, receptions and functions
which in the aggregate furnish a considerable amount of hard work which makes
of their trip anything but a vacation
time. -When, further, they are accompanied by the Prime Minister of the Old
Country, although the latter may relieve
them somewhat in the matter of speeches,
the tour becomes all the more arduous by"
reason of its greater significance. Accordingly, there is all the more cause to
make their few private hours as comfortable as possible and this has been
amply looked after in the Canadian
Pacific Royal Train that is conveying
the distinguished guests across the
Dominion. Grouped on the observation
end of the private car Mount Stephen
that has been assigned to the use of the
Royal guests are the personnel of the
attendants and others whose duty it
will be to make the princes and the premier forget their hard work in the lap of
luxury. They are all picked men who
have been out at one time or another with
celebrities travelling C.P.R. across Cana"
da. The chefs are men of European
reputation who are acknowledged experts
in their line. They have accompanied
the Prince of Wales on his previous
visits to Canada and so are known to
His Royal Highness. Standing on the
car from left to right they are: G. Hicks,
W. Zoppi, H. T. Jolley, T. E. Evans, and
