Skating Rink Will Again
be Alice Arms' Winter
Playground
Alice Arm hookey and skating
enthusiasts are already commencing to lay plans for this season's
programme. A meeting of those
interested was recently held in T.
W. Falconer's store, when various
problems were discussed.
The advisability of laying a pipe
line from Falls Greek to the skating rink was discussed, but tlie
project was discarded, as it was
thought that the undertaking was
too great to be oarried out at the
present time. \
It was then decided to repair the
pipe from J. Strombeck's water
system. This has been done aud a
larger pipe laid on the upper end
of the line by some of the more
energetic of the skating fraternity.
It was also decided to deepen
the well at the rink, but this work
will have to wait until the water
is lower in the well.
Jack Frost is the only one now-
needed in order that skating may
be obtained, and his appearance is
anxiously awaited.
This season's sport for both
hockey playing and skating should
even surpass last season, especially
regarding hookey, and no trouble
should be experienced in again
operating three teams.
>' Two regular players of last season have left town, namely, Geo.
Young and R. F. McGinnis. Herb.
ButleS, who was out of the game
.nearly all last season with a
fractured collar bone, will again be
seen in the line-up. Jack Fiva and
Geo. Bruggy, who were both absent last year, will take their
place on this year's teams, and in
addition to these Pete Johnson and
Steve Briggs, and rumors current
that at least one more will be on
the ice, when the puck is faced off,
and perhaps more.
Meanwhile the boys are casting
longing eyes on the old hockey
stick and skates, and wondering
how long it will be before those
shining blades again skim the ice,
and the toot of Bill Cumming's
whistle gives the signal that the
| first game is on.
Enquiries from Anyox are to the
[effect that Anyox players will
[again visit us this season. The
I boys from the Smelter town are
[always welcome and a good exhi-
Ibition of hockey is always to be
j obtained when they try conclusions
1 with the locals.
|A. D. Banting Visits Anyox
Mr. A. D. Banting, representing
la Vanoouver Financial firm, is in
(town on business. It is interesting to know that Mr. Banting is a
jjonsin of Dr. Banting, the famous
Moctor who discovered Insulin &nd
l.vas awarded the Nobel prize in
1924.
Mr. and Mrs. Nicholas were

A very successful Bazaar was
put on by the ladies of the United

deal of enjoyment. Doors were
opened at 5.45 p.m. and immediately all tables were filled to capacity,
and those willing workers were
kept busy serving supper, until
7.30 p.m. Needless to say the
supper was exceptionally good,
the charge being 50 cents perplate.
The supper was under the direction
of Mrs. J. Cloke aud Mrs. A.

The gross proceeds of the sale
amounted to $225.00

previous to his departure south.
Tunnel Completed
Devlin Zinc
on
Messrs. W. MacDonald, J. Flynn
and P. Jacob, who had a contract
to drive a hundred feet of tunnel
ou the Devlin Zinc property, completed the work this week. A
tunnel 75 feat in length was
driven, and also two orossouts, one
in a westerly direotion and the
other easterly. One orossout wa9
10 feet in length and the other 15
feet.
The ore body was not encountered, and a oareful examination
shows that approximately an
additional 20 or 30 feet will have
to be driven before ore is encountered.

The mining camp of Beaverdell
in the southern interior of the province, is in the spotlight these days,
especially since the powerful
Guggenheim interests bonded a
mining property there for $500,-
000. Yet mining at Wallace
mountain has been carried on for
over twenty years with varying
success. Big capital fought shy of
the place, and it was the residents
of the camp who put their money
and labor into the ground, and who
are now earning the reward for
their perseverance. Because capi
tal is shy of investing in a certain
district does not prove that the
country is barren, it only means
that not enough ore is in sight to
interest the big operators. It is
over ten years since mining
was commenced in the Alice Arm
district, and we may therefore anticipate some of the big ones
shortly becoming interested. Alice
Arm has like Beaverdell, some
high grade veins of silver ore, and
a number of these are now being
developed from the town to the
La Rose mine, If we can only
keep developing our most promising showings, we will eventually
reach a point where it would be a
suicidal policy for tbe big mining
operators to stand aloof.
Machinery Taken From
Rocker deBoule Mine
Near Hazelton
The big festive season of Christmas will shortly be with us again,
and during the next few weeks the
hectic rush for the stores, and post
offices will be on in full swing, increasing in momemtum until the
eve of the festive day. Appeals
ate made each year by the Post
Office authorities and the heads of
the stores for people to do their
business early, If you have not
completed your Christmas shopping
do it without delay, and mail your
Christmas mail in ample time; also
when choosing your Christmas
presents look over the display in
your local stores. Often an
article may be procured cheaper
in your local stores than can be
obtained from the elaborate catalogue of a mail order house.
Spend your money in the town
where you obtain your livelihood
whenever possible, for it means increased prosperity for your own
district, instead of some city hundreds of miles away.
When the whole   blamed   world
seems gone to pot,
And business is on the bum—
A two-oent grin and a lifted chin,
Helps some, my boy, helps some.
Within a few weeks the hope always hold for the renewal of activity at the Rocher de Boule mine,
Skeena Crossing, will be killed and
the active days in connection with
the development of that property
will be but a memory. Since the
mine was closed down over ten
years ago, the equipment has remained at the site in full readiness
for resuming operations, but this
machinery has recently been sold
to the B. C. Equipment Company
of Vancouver. Mr. A. B. Wing,
representing the new owners, recently arrived at Hazelton to make
a survey of the plant for the purpose of preparing for its removal
from the property.
The Rocher de Boule mine was
fully equipped with modern
machinery, including an arial tram
line from the property to the railway at Carnaby, locomotives, rails,
hoists, compressors and other
equipment. As soon as Mr. Wing
lias looked over the plant he will
bring in gear and equipment for
transporting the mining machinery for shipment from Skeena
Crossing.
The Rocher de Boule mine was a
proposition financed by the sale of
stock, and there are several holders
of stock in this district.
