[Fatal Accident Occurs
At Maple Bay
! Man is Killed Falling 10 Feet
A fatal accident occurred at
Maple Bay on Saturday December
15th when Mr. Wallace Houston
was accldently killed. Mr. Heus-
ton was employed as a carpenter
and was engaged in the construction of the conveyor house on the
dock. He had just finished nailing
on a hoard and was about to de-
| soeud the ladder when it slipped
1 sideways, and the unfortunate man
fell striking his head on a brace
only ten feet below. He was
l caught by a fellow workmanl
directly after he hit the brace and
did not fall to the dock. An examination proved that death had been
Deceased was 65 yeaas of age,
and as far as is known has no living
relatives. The funeral took place
on Wednesday, at 1.30 p.m. at the
Anyox cemetery, Rev. J. Herdman
Painful Accident Occurs
_ on S. S. Cardena
.;%     . ,	
A serious accident occurred "on
I Monday on board the S. S. Cardena
' when Mr. Matt Mercer, a passenger
' had the misfortune to fall down a
companionway, breaking-his arm
and receiving severe lacerations of
the scalp.   The accident occurred
shortly   after   the   Cardena  left
Anyox on her way to Stewart, and
the boat put hack to port, and landed Mr. Mercer, who was rushed to
the Hospital, and is now considered
; out of danger.
Logging  Camp Closes
for Short Period
The Logging camp of the Abbotsford Logging Co. closed down on
Monday. The close-down was unexpected, for until a short time
previously it had been decided to
continue operations. When seen
by the Herald Mr. J. 0. Trethewey
stated that the chief oause of the
close-down was adverse weather
conditions. He, however, expeoted
that a crew of men would be working again next month, cutting
wood for use of the engines next
summer, and falling and bucking
logs would also probable be undertaken.
At the present time he could not
say when a full crew would be
' again working at the oamp, as it
depended entirely upon weather
conditions, but logging operations
would bo commenced as early as
possible in the ooming year.
It was on the 13th. of Deoember
of last year that work was commenced by the Abbotsford Logging Co.
and operations since that time have
been continuous. The winter season is now well advanced and it
will only/ be a comparatively short
time before the snow ceases to fall,
and operations will be again in full
biast.     \

Payment Made
on Sunset Property by
Seattle Company
Mr. G. W. Morley, the well
known prospector and mining property owner of Alice Arm, has
received the second payment due
on the Sunset property from the
Keystone Mining/Co. of Seattle,
who took a bond on the property
last summer.
The Sunset is located on Roundy
Creek, and is one of the most promising looking properties in the district. The property was examined
on behalf of the Keystone Company
by Mr. E. Martin Thorniley, min
ing engineer of Los Angeles, who
reported favorably on the property.
It has been deoided by the Keystone Co. to spend $25,000 in development work on the property next
year.     ,
The Sunset ia within easy reach
of tidewater, and an aerial tramline oan be constructed very
cheaply, connecting with ore bunk
ers on the beach. Some good ore
veins are in full view carrying high
silver values. From the geological
point of view the formation is ideal
the ore being found on a granite
contact. With these points in it's
favor there is no doubt that under
a programme of good hard development work the Sunset will rapidly
develop into a shipping mine.
Mr. Morley states that negotia
tions are under way forthe bonding
of his mining properties on Mo*
Grath mountain, and if these mature
the mining distriot in the immediate vioinity of Alice Arm will un
doubtedly experience somewhat of
a boom next summer.

To all our readers, We extend the Qreetings of the
Season, and wish you all a
good old-fashioned Merry
Two more days and Christmas
Day will be with us again. For
many centuries the 25th. day of
December has been observed as
Christmas. Jt is supposed to commemorate the day of, the birth of
Jesus Christ. At first the day was
observed only by Christian peopje
in touch with the Roman Catholic
Church.   It later grew into favor
i with Protestant Churches and has
come to be recognized as a universal Christmas festival. Today it is
celebrated throughout the world, in
pagan lands as well as Christian
lands. It comes nearer to being
a universal holiday than any other
day observed by mankind. There
is a spirit and an atmosphere about
the day that is contagious. While
vast multitudes of people may observe the day without any serious
' thought as to what lies back of it,
there are still great multitudes to
whom it has signifiance, because if
marks the day of birth of Jesus in
Nazareth, the Gift of God to a
lost world. We may not think
much of what lies back of the gifts
which pass among us, but every
one of them is related to the unspeakable Gift, which sprang from
s the love of God. If God had not
so loved the world as to give his
only begotten Son, there would be
no Christmas and no holiday and
no Christmas gifts. Every token
of love that passes from one person
to another is but a reflection of that
great love that expressed itself in
the gift of God. The angels which
came over Bethlehem's field and
the shepherds who gathered in the
Large Amount of Copper
Exported During Year
Burdick, Logan & Company, Limited

Vancouver, B. O.
Special to the Herald
Boston—Sales of Oopper Export
Association in the week ended November 21 amounted to 15,322,000
pounds at an average price of 13.25
cents a pound, Although this is
almost the top prioe on the recent
recovery in copper prioes it was
not sufficient to pull the November
average up to 13 cents, Indeed,
in the current month to November
21 average of  12.94 cents a pound.
In the 1923 year to November 21,
Export Association has sold to it's
foreign customers 350,000,000
pounds of metal at an average of
1.4.45 cents a pound. ,
That this organization is getting
its full share of the foreign copper
business is seen by the fact that in
the current year to date, total
deliveries by it amounted to
170,917 short tons, or about 342,-
000,000 pounds. Exports from all
sources in the first ten months
amounted to 662,000,000 pounds.
France continues to be the
largest customer of the association.
That country in the current year
to date has taken approximately
100,000,000 pounds of metal at an
average of something under 14.
cents a pound; its total imports of
American copper amounted to
165,302,000 pounds. England
took about ,53,000,000 pounds
against imports from all sources of
136,350,000 pounds, and Germany
and Holland bought through the
Association about 60,000,000
pounds, against joint imports of
153,000,000 pounds.
The Tree for Me
Some people like the rugged oak,
Whioh grows so'straight and tall;
Some like the maple-tree because
It's gorgeous in the fall.
Some like the pine and some the elm
And some the apple-tree;
But just about this time each year,
The Christmas-tree suits me!
Judged by the prevailing color of
his costume, Santa Claus is one of
the most dangerous "reds" we have.
humble manger in Bethlehem have
had their songs re-echoed and the
gift duplicated in all ages since.
God's gift was an interpretation of
the universal heart of mankind, and
throughout the centuries that heart
has responded in its innumerable
gifts at yuletide. /

Victoria,-^Striking figures regarding the gradual expansion of
British Columbia's industrial activity were presented to the provincial
Legislature the other day. These
statistics show that in 1915 there
were only 1,007 manufacturing
'plants in the province as against
2,809 in 1922, which means an
increase of 179 per cent. Employees in these plants numbered 21,-

Fight for Coast Steel Plant Still
Going On ,
Vict6ria, December 17th.—After
a determined fight, lasting a dozen
years and the outlay of nearly a
quarter of a million dollars, much
of it being his own fortune, Henry
J. Landahl, head of the Coast
Range Steel project, has been
spending; the past month here,
attending legislature in the interest of the movement which designs
to give Pacific Canada a great
blast furnace. He has secured the
support of the Home Government,
and has encouragement from the
Dominion Government, conditional
upon his securing provincial support to back the enterprise.
During his stay here, he has received scores of encouraging letters
from the Old Country and elsewhere, many coming from high in
life: It is seen that much of the
opposition comes from eastern
steel interests who are hostile to
