Anyox Winners of Fine
Spectacular Hockey
Breaking up and down the ice
at breakneck pace before the. largest
crowd of funs of the season at the
Alice Arm skating rink on Sunday'
Anyox emerged victorious with
seven counters against their opponents five.
The battle was as fine an exhib
ition of hockey as has been seen ou
tho rink for many a day. The
players were somewhat inclined
to "hog the puck," but brilliant
flashes of combination play were
also in evidence
Anyox brought over an almost
'entirely new team, and for the
majority it was their appearance
on the local rink. Alice Arm were
minus Al. Falconer, T. W. Falconer, and Bert Kergin, their places
being filled by T. Crompton, ,T.
Hutton and J. Wilson.
For almost the entire game both
teams battled on even terms. Alice

shooting eyes, scoring within three
niiiuites of the commencement.
They repeated the trick within a
few minutes.
Anyox ■ players, who were #8

goals in one, two, three order. The
close of the period saw Anyox 3,

The second period was 'brim full
of excitement. Both teams uncorked a rain of shots ou the goals, and
brilliant defensive tactics and quick
work of the goal keepers were
responsible for keeping down the
Anyox bulged the twine twice
with hot shots. They had now
settled down to real hockey and
considering their lack of- practice
and unfamiliarity with each others
play they worked wonders. They
played good hockey and deserved
every goal they got.
Alice Arm players were tireless,
j they rallied to the attack, and shared
I equally in the honors, and before
the end of the period they flicked
[ the puck past McLellan.
The third period was the most
exciting of the game. Both teams
threw every ounce of energv into
the game. Brilliant dashes were
made, first one team shining and
then the other. Alice Arm were
the first to put the puck where it
belonged. Anyox bulged the
twine directly after, Alice Arm

Canadian Authors and
Poets Theme  of
Mr. Walter McRaye, the well
known Canadian orator, who has
lectured on Canadianism from the
Atlantic to the Pacific, addressed a
large audience at the Recreation
Hall, on Monday evening.
This is the second time Mr. McRaye has appeared on the Anyox
platform. His discourse was entirely different, and was greatly
enjoyed by all those present. He
is au eloquent speaker, and handled
his subject in a masterly manner.
He was introduced by the Rev. C.
D. Clarke,
Mr. G. Crow rendered several
piano selections during the evening
which were very much appreciated.
The subject chosen for his address
was "'An Evening with Canadian
Writers," and it was pointed out
there are over 300 authors on Canadian subjects.
Mr. McRaye in his opening remarks dwelt on the history of the
printing press in lower Canada,
which made its first appearance in
1606, and came into commercial
use in 1742 in the province of Nova
Among the most noted-Canadian
authors which the speaker brought
before the attention of the audience
were Dr. Drummond, A. M. Steven
Bliss Cannon, Isabell Echestone
McKay. Marjorie L. C. Pickthall,
Jean Blewett, Lawren Harris,
|,Virna Sheard, Thomas O'Hagan,
Mary Josephine Bensen, Bernard
Freeman Trotter, Donald G.
French, E. Pauline Johnson (Teka-
hionwake) and Mabel Burkholder,
Robert Service, Wilson McDonald.
Mr. McRaye recited Dr. Drum-
mond's poems "Habitant", "Little
Bateese", "Habiteese came Home",
much to the amusement of those
present. These were delivered and
given in'full expression in the
broken jargon of the French Canadian. Another item which proved
of special interest to those who have
resided'iu British Columbia for a
number of years was the delivery
of the poem of E, Pauline Johnson
(Tekahionwake) "Yaada," who was
supposed to be the loveliest daughter of the Haida tribe and many of
theyoungbraves from all thelslauds
from the mainland and the Upper
Skeena country came hoping to
carry her to their far off lodges,
but they always returned alone,
but according to tradition, there
was one Indian brave named Ulka
who alone found favour iu Yaada's
Mr. McRaye was very pointed in
his remarks iu the lack of interest
shown by the Canadian people in
the majority of cases of their tai-di-
ness in. purchasing any product
manufactured in Canada, if we
as practical pioneers of this glorious country of ours are to build
up this Canada, it becomes everybody to be first class boosters
and purchase those things which
was produced in the Dominion. In
the course of his remarks he dwelt
on the Canadian Clubs which are
to be found in the various cities of
Canada, which are practically institutions oarried on who bear the
name of the oountry, but have not
the spirit of enthusiasm of Canada
at heart.
The fans who accompanied the
Anyox Hockey team to Alice Arm
last Sunday spent a very enjoyable
time on the rink before and after
the game. The ice was in good
condition and everyone was skating, ALICE   ARM   AND   ANYOX   HERALD,   Friday,   January   15   1927

E. MOSS, Editor and Publisher.
An article, written by P. A.
O'Farrell dealing with the developments and future prospects of
British Columbia, recently appeared in the Financial Times of
Montreal. In dealing with the
mining industry the writer stated
that the Premier Co. of Stewart
pays more income tax than all the
farmers of Alberta, Saskatchewan
and Manitoba combined. Were
it not, he says, for the exorbitant
income tax the Premier would be
milling 1200 tons of ore per day
instead of 400. He further states
that in Quebec where no income
tax is levied, gold mining development is being pushed with extraordinary rapidity. This article has
been copied extensively by British
Columbia newspapers and mining
journals; also by western U. S. A.
mining journals. We believe that
it was written to further the mining
interests of Quebec and Ontario,
to the discredit of British Columbia. Mr. O'Farrell did not also
state that although the Premier Co.
have not enlarged their milling capacity, the Granby Co. has almost
doubled theirs during the past year,
and also commenced the operation
of a new property at Copper
Mountain. He also did not stress
the enormous increased output of
the Consolidated Co. at Trail and
Kimberley, or the increased output
of the Britannia; neither did he
mention that the Premier Co. were
bonding new properties in British
Columbia. He did not mention
other big properties that were
being developed by the big companies, or the big expansion of the
industry during the past year.
His policy evidently was to place
British Columbia at a disadvantage
in comparison with Quebec and
Ontario and such tactics are to be
deplored. Is it any wonder this
rich Dominion does not show more
rapid development when one section of the country is boosted at
the expense of the other. We admit that mining taxes are high, too
high, especially for a mine in the
early stages, but it is not stilling
the industry to the extent that Mr.
O'Farrell would have us believe.
It must be remembered that the
government is under a  heavy ex-

Expansion  of   Mining
Industry in B. C.
Province   Contains   Largest
Dividend Payer in Canada
Dividends declared by public
companies engaged in mining in
British Columbia show an increase
of nearly $3,000,000 for 1926 over
1925, the respective amounts being
$9,051,645 compared with $6,072,-
465. Dividends of private companies are not given but would add considerable to the figures. This is
one of the encouraging features of
British Columbia mining in the past
year, says E. A. Haggen, in the
Daily Province.
It is expected that the directors of
the Granby Consolidated Mining,
Smelting & Power Co. will declare
»a dividend of 3 per cent, for the past
year. If so, this will add another
$1,034,409 to the above. The
profits now being made by the mineral industry are remarkable. The
dividends represent an increase of
50 per cent, over the previous year,
and amount to about 15 per cent,
on the total value of the mineral
production. They prove the mineral industry to be the most profitable
field of capital investment in British
Consolidated Mining and Smelting
Company leads all Canadian mining
t companies in the amount of dividends declared for the past year.
With Premier, two British Columbia companies rank among the five
highest dividend payers from mining
operations in Canada.
The   Consolidated   Mining   and
Smelting Company now ranks as the
I world's second largest producer of

be something very special for the
children as this year's celebration
was the Diamond Jubilee of Confederation.
Mr. J. Kania contributed to the
programme with a violin solo,
accompanied by Mrs. Pynn, at the
piano. An encore number was
greatly appreciated.
Mr. Hartley, principal of the
Public Schools was elected to till
the vacancy of convenor of the
programme committee. A nursery
roll will be purchased for Miss
Andrews who will use this in primary department lessons. Mrs. ,W.

weak team on the ice, being without the services of T. W. Falconer,
