Hydro-Electric Co. Are
Waiting To Commence
Wolf Claim Will Use Power
For Development Purposes
The Alioe Arm Hydro-Electric
Co, are prepared to start construction of their plant, just as soon as
tlie legal points have been complied with. Construction work
can not, commence until the staking of the water rights have been
advertised, and any objections
that may be made have been considered.
Mr. J. Stark, who owns the
Wolf property, through which Falls
Creek runs, has given the company
a lease extending over a period of
fifty years.
In an interview with the Herald,
Mr. Stark said that he expected to
develop the Wolf proporty from
the company's plant as soon as it
was in operation. With a power
plant on the ground it would be
an easy matter for any company to
develop the ore deposits of the
Wolf, which are similar to those
found on the Esperanza.
It is expeoted that other properties in the vicinity will also be developed when the plant is operating.
It is understood that the company are not experiencing any
trouble whatever in obtaining the
necessary money for the purchase
and installation of the plant.
Everyone realizing that after the
initial outlay the cost of upkeep
will be small and that a demand
for light and power will always
exist, both for Alice Arm ajid the
raining properties adjacent to the
power plant. ...

capacity crowd was present to root
for their favorite teams.
The Rovers and High School
Intermediates provided the curtain
raiser. The latter winning 16-11.
The game was closely fought

the cause of the Rover's defeat.
Buntain and Crawford were the

Mine on Monday evening. Three
games were played, the first
brought together the Mine and
Coke Plant Intermediates. The
former winning by a 47 to 8 score.
The Muckers completely outclassed
their opponents and certainly look
like the class of the Intermediate
League. D. Dean was high scorer
with nineteen points. M. Gow
scored six of the loser's points.
The teams lined up as follows:

Stewart Looks Good To
Local Man
Mr. Elmer Ness spent a few
days in Stewart during the week,
leaving on Monday aud returning
on Thursday.
Mr. Ness states that the town of
Stewart is prosperous, due to the
mining activity of the district.
From information he gained regarding the Dunwell he is confident that it is destined to become
a big mine. The greatest excitement, however, iu Stewart at the
present time is being caused by the
phenominal showings of ore on the
Gold Ciiff property. This property
lies close to the town of Stewart,
and was lately bonded by Mr.
Trites, who has decided on an extensive programme of development

The final game of the evening
was a Senior League fixture between the Coke Plant and Mine.
The Coke Makers turned in their
second straight win by a 38 to 14
score. Closely checked.by their
opponents and inability to locate
the basket was tlie cause of the
Mine's defeat. Thompson was

Stewart Leads The Way
In the matter of giving
spread publicity to their
resources the people of Stewart
undoubtedly foremost in the |
vince. Like the live merch
who has something to sell they
lieve in extensive advertising,
spasmodic, but persistent. Stewart has a Citizens' Association
who are always on the job. Individuals, and especially those
possessing mining properties leave
no stone unturned in order to induce capital to develop their latent
resources. They are confident
that the majority of those who invest will receive rich rewards, and
they go to the men with money
instead of leaving for other camps
or sitting idly at home waiting for
someone else to start something.
The success attained'by the people
of Stewart proves that an aggressive policy pays. They are now
commencing to reap the fruits of
their years of labor, and now that
they are on the down stretch, prosperity will increase as time passes.
What Stewart has done, others
towns can do, providing they adopt
the motto, "All for one, and one
for all-
Demand For Molybdenite
The fact that molybdenite is
selling around 75 cents per pound
is welcome news for the mining
property owners of Alice Arm
who have this ore on their properties. There are considerable deposits of this ore within a few
miles of the town. With the ore
selling at the present price and all
indications pointing to a stabilization of this price, it should not be
very difficult to find capital to develop the local deposits. They
: are situated close to tide-water
i and the cost of shipping wonld be
a small percentage of the total
cost of mining and shipping to a
i   reduction plant.

B. C. Will Always Have
Plenty Timber
Sweden with an area less than
two thirds the size of British
Columbia, has a population close
upon six million people yet after
all these centuries the timber industry is still its largest industry.
In British Columbia, therefore,
we need not despair in spite of
jeremiards that appear from time
to time. With the exercise of
reasonable intelligence and common
sense the timber resources of this
Province will serve, not only the
present generation, but generations
for all time.
Extract from a recent speech by
Hon. T. D. Pattullo, minister of
Increase In Canadian
During the past 12 months 134,-
189 immigrants entered Canada,
an increase of six per cent, over the
previous twelve-month period
when 126,744 arrived. During
the seven months ended October
31, 1924, 30,966 Canadians returned to this country from the United
States, acccording to reports issued at Ottawa by the American
Prince  Rupert's Fish Catch
For October
During the month of October
this year 2,903,100 pounds of fish
were landed at Prince Bupert by
the fishing fleet of that port, according to information received by
the colonization and development
department of the Canadian
National Railways. Included in
the catch were 2,210,700 pounds of
halibut, 569,450 pounds of salmon,
700 pounds of crabs and 300
pounds of shrimps.
Frettin' never wins a fight
And fumin' never pays;
There ain't no use in broodin'
In these pessimistio ways;
Smile just kinda cheerfully gone,
And bristle up and grit your teeth
And keep on a keepin' on.
diVes you these
two exclusive features—the AH-Wood Oval Horn
and the Ultona.
They are the Key principles of the noted Brunswick
Method of Reproduction.
The All-Wood Oval Horn—built entirely of wood—
amplifies the tones of any record in full harmony with
the laws of acoustics. No nasal twang. No metallic
harshness. The true, rich, natural tone of instrument
and voice.
And the Ultona gives you unrestricted choice of records without fussy attachments or adjustments. A twist of the wrist gives
you the exact point, position and weight for any type of record.
In the Brunswick you have a phonograph that plays every

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

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

Standing of Political
Parties At Ottawa
The recent Federal by-eleotion
in West Hastings, Ontario, in
which t' e liberal candidate won
over the conservative leaves' the
party standing slightly changed.
In the House of Commons the
parties now stand (excluding the
speaker): Liberals. 116; Progressives, 62; Conservatives, 51; Labor,
2; Independents, 2; vacant, 1.
Total. 234.
The single vacancy was caused
by the death of L. Gauvrean, member for Temiscoiiata, in Quebec.
The constituency has been Liberal
ever since 1896 and should it again
return a Liberal, the government
would have a representation equal
to the total representation on the
opposition side of the House.
The Temiscoiiata seat was won
in 1921 in a three-cornered contest
by a majority of 792,
at Engineer Mine
Word from the North is that the
mill at the Engineer mine will soon
be grinding ore, the plant having
been practically completed a
inonth. ago. Construction work
ou the power house is expected to
be completed soon. It was planned to start work on the leases
sf. during the fall, but the season was
too far advanced before operations
got under way and winter supplies
were sent in. Serious operation of
\j. this great mine will begin for the
first time in the spring. While it
has been a considerable producer
in .past years, operations have
never gone much beyond the-"gopher" stage.

Premier May Have New
Between milling and crude ore
the Premier mine has been producing around 300 tons a day, and
there are persistent rumors that a
new 500-ton mill will be constructed at the portal of No 6 tunnel.
During the summer Mr. Dale Pitt,
the manager, visited tlie American
metallurgical plants to obtain the
latest ideas on the treatment of
ores similar to those of the Premier mine. The rise in the stock
on the New York market is interpreted to mean a probable increase in the dividend rate from 8
per cent, to 10 per cent, per
Indian Closed
It is stated that the Indian mine
is to be permanently closed, recent
development having failed to disclose ore bodies of sufficient magnitude and value to promise a profitable mining operation.
Surf Inlet To Be Abandoned
Bad news comes from Surf Inlet.
The pillars are being drawn, and it
is stated the .mine will be shut
down and abandoned for good
within a year. The management
is looking for another propery in
Northern British Columbia on to
which to transfer the mining and
electrical machinery. It is from
the mining of the pillars that the
higher values reoently reported
have been obtained.
It has been suggested that a
museum be formed in Prince
Rupert, and meetings, relative to
that purpose are being held.

the Hockey Pictorial which has
just been published, and which is
at once the handsomest and most
complete publication ever produced

too highly of it.

efforts, typographically and pictor-
ially, it is a ''masterpiece." From
cover to cover it is embellished
with group pictures of. championship teams from 1888 to 1924, in
fact, the history of Canada's Great
National Winter Sport is told in
Old-timers will be interested in
the handsome halftones of the
teams who were prominent a
generation ago, while the younger
enthusiasts will enjoy the reproductions of the more recent winners.
The book is not only lavishly
illustrated, but is literally crammed with much interesting information regarding individuals, clubs
and leagues throughout the country.
Looal hockey fans will find a
very interesting group picture of
the Canadian Olympic Hockey
Champions of 1924 on the front
cover and also a complete history
of the players and records right to
the finish.

Cariboo and Caribou
1. Casting on Quesnel Lake;   2. A fair morning's catch;   3. Cleaning the gun for the hunt.
WHAT is one of the finest big
game and fishing sections of
North America and one of the last
great stands for big game, lies within easy reach of the Canadian Pacific
Railway in the Cariboo district of
British Columbia. Here, as nowhere
else on the continent, are found in
abundance the bear, grlzzley, brown
and black; the moose and caribou,
and the wary mountain goat and
sheep. The cougar is often seen and
heard and the smaller fur bearing
animals make a trappers paradise of
this vast virgin territory. As will
be seen from the picture above, the
fishing is superlatively good; it if
the fishing country of the west.
"Who is the man with soul so dead
and bent on irksome chores, who
hath not sometime to him said, 'I'll
seek the Great Outdoors' ?" Each
year an increasing number of hunters and fishermen are absorbed by
the district, but so vast and extensive
Is'it, that there are yet parts of it
that have never been visited by the
hunter, and streams that Lave never
had a line thrown-over-them. To
reach the Cariboo district one usually
leaves the railway at Ashciou :r"_
which place, arrangements having
previously been made, one starts out
by automobile over the famous Cariboo road to Quesnel Lake, Harpers
Camp, Horsefly Lake or one other
of the numerous camping sites. The
road, which winds among the foothills for hundreds of miles, climbs
to an elevation of 5,000 feet and
drops gradually to below the 2,300
foot level by the lakes, was made
famous by the horde of gold seekers
who passed over it in the days of '49.
The old road houses built in those
days are still there, and while many
of them are used as headquarters
for the large ranches in the district
they afford simple but comfortable
accommodation on the trip.
From the camps one can just
paddle along the still, black, green
bordered streams and lakes over
which the snow capped ranges tower,
or one can sit at ease by the camp
fire and watch the sun sink behind
the hills set ablaze with its glory,
listening the while to the soft rustle
of the wind in the tree tops and the
gentle plashing of the water on the
crags. If one is of a more agressive
nature one can, accompanied by a
careful and well tried guide, strike
through the wilderness in search of
its natural denizens, or, armed with
rod, fly and other bait, angle to the
hearts content. One may spend
weeks, making short trips by boat,
canoe, or saddle horse, fishing in the
lakes and streams near by, and
getting back to camp each night, or
travel with the necessaries for bivouac and commune with the wilds
for days or weeks at a time.
The Cariboo hunting and fishing
grounds are located in the Oreat
Interior Plateau, lying between the
Rockies and the Cascades, east
of the Fraser River. Ashcroft, the
jumping off place, is on the main
line of the Canadian Pacific 203
miles east of Vancouver. Equipment
for trips can be purchased there or
at one of the various hunting centres
in the district close by. Guide and
Outfitting companies cater to every
necessity and the "Cariboo" and
other lodges adequately care for the
wants of the business or professional
man who does not care for an extended hunting or fishing trip but
desires to get away from something
or everything for a while.

Molybdenite Again
Brings High Price
Eastern and Southern Mines
Resume Operations
Molybdenite has been occupying
considerable attention recently
from the colonization and development department of the Canadian
National Railways, and their investigations are of interest to tlie
owners of a number of properties
in Central and Northern British
Columbia carrying bodies and
values in this mineral.
In answer to enquiries regarding the market value of molybdenite and the prospective demand
Foi' this mineral received by the
colonization aiid development department of tbe Canadian National
Railways, Winnipeg, an official of
that department states that New
York quotations during the last
two months have been nominal at
65 to 80 cents per pound or molybdenite contained in an eighty-live
per cent M°S2 concentrate, the
latest being from 70 to 75 cents.
From this must be deducted the
duty, amounting to 18 cents per
pound on the above grade of
ore concentrate. British quotations are 50 shillings ($12.50) to 55
drillings ($13.50) per unit of 22.4
pounds contained iu an eighty-five
per cent concentrate C.I.F. These
prices are. low compared to the
war price of $1.10 per pound f.o.b.
About six months ago the situation was considered encouraging
enough for the owners of the property at Quyon, Quebec, to reopen
their mine, and they have been
mining and milling ever since, and
have, it is understood, sold all
their concentrates in the United
States market at the prevailing
price. Two or three owners of
Canadian molybdonite properties
are contemplating operations in
the near future. The Climax
Molybdenite Company, who own
the largest molybdenite mine iu
the world at Climax, Colorado,
recently resumed operations.
Tbe C. N. R. officials in question
state that there is every reason to
be optimistic with regard to the
future of molybdenite, and feel
that it rests mainly with the producer of the raw material to prove
to the somewhat sceptical consumer that there is an adequate
supply of the material, which the
producer will undertake to deliver
and live up to his contract.

ALICE   ARM   AND   ANYOX   HERALD,   Saturday,   Deoember  6,   1924
The patter of tiny feet was heard on
the stairs and Mrs. Blank raised her
hand for stillness among the members
of her bridge olnb.
"The babies are going to give me
their midnight message," «hu whispered. "Listen, it always gives me a
feeling of reverence."
The silence was intense as the women listened. "Mamma," came the
sin-ill whisper, "Willie found a bedbug!"
A small buy came hurriedly down
the street and baited breathlessly in
front of a stranger who was walking
in the same direction.
"Have yon lost half a dollar?" he
"Yes, yes, t believe I have!" said the
stranger feeling iu his pockets. "Have
you found one?"
"Oil, no," said the boy "I just want
to find out how many have been lost
today.   Yours makes fifty- five."
If a man is wise, one angry word
does not lead to another.
