The usual business, session t was
considerably brightened and shortened by favorable reports from
standing and special committees.
Progress is being made in securing
additional books for. the sohool
library and bulbsin bloom are now
available for each class room,
Both, of these new :. features,' are
■ indebd much appreciated by teach-
jiers ;anp] pupils, alike, The Con-
venqrs of the concert committee
reported on the great success and
pleasure occasioned by the Children's Christmas Entertainment.
Although numerous requests have
been made for a repeat performance
j it was decided that such was impracticable, because of the demands
on sohool time and energies whioh
can be ill afforded at any season.
The meeting passed a hearty and
unanimous vote of thanks to those
who so •willingly helped, .to. add
i enjoyment to the concert by their
generous efforts,; among, whom,
were Mrs. KribftsV T. P. Bjftiri, J,

numbers by Mrs. Watson, proved
extremely delightful'. >■"Miss" Leitch

and enlightening discussion of a
very vital modern problem',: whioh
is seriously handicapping, school
and home life in iB. C. and elso-
where, namely: "The .Unmitigated
Menanoe of Undbsir'abfe' Movies,"

Mining Outlook
is
uraging
The year of 1923 finds the mining
industry of the ripthern B. C. coast
in 'a very healthy 6t"a'tel': 'More
mining propertied are under bond
and are being developed , than ever
before, and by the time the year
draws to a close this numb'er wi .1
probably, be..treb'led. ...The district
has, during the.past produced moi b
mineral wealth than "in any previous year, arid there is.no reason;
to expect but that the magnifioient
showing made! last year, will bb
eclipsed during 1923. The Premier
at Stewart, is continually pouring
out a steady stream of: wealth; and
the Dolly Varden and Wolf at Aliep
Aririis shortly expected to do jikef-'

Douglas Channel, will shortly
commence regular shipments of ore
to the Anyox smelter, . and the
numerous properties under deveU
bpmentori the northern coast from
Stewart to Surf Inlet, will soon add
to the quota.' if the rest of this
troubled world could face the
coming year as cheerfully as this
district,;, what a happy place it
would be.

that ihe will spend, considerable
time in the camp next summer,

a good mining camp, providing the
right class of mining, men could
be attracted.to the district, and he

HoekeyGame*
y,., Sport is Proving Popular
' During the weak the Alice Arm
Skating Bink has been the centre
of attrabtiori for both sexes of all
ages. On Sunday, a hockey ganie.
was staged by the ladies, of the
town, arid the game was a sizzler
from start to finish. After a closely
contested game the winning side
were, declared ,. winners with. ,a
soore of some few goals over their
opponents. A friendly game.'.was
also played between the male' exj-
ponents of the puck chasing game
which was up to the usual high
standard.
On Wednesday, the girls and
boys locked horns—or rather hockey,
sticks—-iii mortal combat. , And
the girls, jjist to: shp.w, that the
"modern maid" is in no way inferior to the lordly male, 'kept'the
boysarbustlingfor45 minutes,and
finally beat them with a score of
7-6. • ';.;'.■ -'•• ; ■;■
The first League match of the
Alice Arm Hookey League' was
played on Friday afternoon before
a.large gathering of fans,, wheti the
Cougers and Wildcats mangled
each other for three thrilling
periods, v Some of the wildest of
I the cats failed to put in an appearance, but' their places were filled
with an equally enthusiastic number of their brethren. The Cougers
were out seeking whom they, could
devour, and they certainly got the
cats' "goat." They placed the
rubber six times past the boy with
the pads and big stick, and the
best the wildcats could do was to
'chase the elusive puck but once,

Time To Blast
Mining Outlook for
The District.
The commencement of the year,
finds the copper market still in the
. dumps, with prices ranging between
14 and 15 cents per lb. Copper
today is the poor member of the
metal family, and the present low
price is discouraging "for the producers, who are endeavoring to
carry on in the hope of shortly
being able to obtain better prices
for their product. Recent advices
from all oyer the continent predict
'that the price of the yellow metal
will very soon commence to climb,
owing to the fact that the surplus
stocks are being used up. We
hope these statements are true, for
a substantial increase in the price
of copper, will immeasurably increase the prosperity of the
northern B. C. mining camps.
The price of silver still stands
around the 64 cent mark, and
while this metal has fluctuated
during the year; the present price
is practically the same as at the
commencement of 1921, when
silver was quoted 64 1-8 cents per
oz. There are a number of very
promising silver prospects in this
district and if the price of silver
maintains its present value there is
no doubt that a number of these
properties, in the vicinity of Alice
Arm will be developed during the
year, and also that the Dolly Varden and Wolf properties will again
be in operation, now that they are
under new management.
It is predicted that northern
British Cojlumbia is about to witness one of the biggest mining
booms in the world. It has been
conclusively proved by the Premier
at Stewart, the Dolly Varden mine
at Alice Arm and the Hidden
Creek mine at Anyox, that the
country is exceptionally rich in
mineral wealth, and the only thing
that is needed to prove up similar
properties is capital and this is
especially true of Alice Arm. It
is however hoped that when capital is expended in this district, that
it will be wisely and judiciously
spent, and that the past mistakes of
operators will not be repeated.
Drum Lummon Ore
For Anyox Smelter
The Drum Lummon mine, situated on Douglas Channel, about 40
miles from Surf Inlet, is preparing
to make monthly shipments of ore
to Anyox smelter: , About 3000
tons will be shipped each month.
Since last May, 30 men have been
employed on the property, and
$60,000 spent on developement
work. The company is capitalized
at $3,000,000, and is financed in
New York. The ore is high grade,
and carries copper, gold and
silver.
Suit is to be Entered Against
Premier Gold Mining Co.
Suit is about to be entered in the
Vancouver courts, by a company
known as the Silver Ores Incorporated,
against the Premier Gold Mining Co.,
for the purpose of recovering title to
certain Salmon River mineral claims,
known as the Premier Extension Nos.
1, 2,'S and 4,. the Extension Fraction,
the True Blue, and the Gloria Fraction. The suit is to be launched by J.
A. Campbell, of the firm of Congdon,
Campbell & Meredith, of Vancouver,
acting on instructions from A. A.
Marshall, of New York, one of the
large shareholders in the Silver Ores
Incorporated, According to Mr.
Campbell, it will be alleged that Capt.
Fader, one time president of the
Silver Ores, Ltd., purchased the claims
from the funds of the Silver Ores, and
putting them in his own name fraudulently sold thein to the Premier' Co.
The claims adjoin the Premier, and
are considered very valuable.
A good story is going the rounds
here of how Dick Drew, well-known
in the Slocan, played even for loss of
sleep occasionally for the gang oft'
shift yarning into the "wee sma' ours:"
They had drilled "starters," and
"lifters," worked in singles and doubles," and just as one driller was
commencing to back that prince of
liars, Annanias, oft' the map, Dick
rolled out of .his bunk, lighting the
fuse of what appeared to be a stick of
blasting powder, he remarked: "Quit
drilling, boys, time to blast." Walking to the stove he threw it in. Our
typewriter fails us when we try to set
down the language of a shivering
bunch who later returned on seeing
Dick beckon them from the door.
The charge proved to be only a piece
of broomstick with fuse attached.

Price of Copper Expected to Increase
The price of copper will rise to
18 or 19 oents in a year and possibly before, as compared with 14
cents a pound at the present tfme,
was the opinion expressed by G. A.
Lauzier, of Butte, Montana, president of the Lauzier-Woloott Co.,
while on a visit to Spokane,
recently. ,
Mr. Lauzier said he found basis
for the expectation in the reduced
surplus and the growing demand.
The production is less than the
consumption.
"The. declaration of a 75-ceut
dividend by Kennicott, indicates'a
confidence in the future of the
copper market, for if the outlook
was not promising it is not probable that the dividend would have
been declared."
A stablizing effeot on the copper
metal market'is expected to result
..when negotiations are concluded
by the Anaconda Copper Mining
Company for the purchase of the
control of the Guggenheim corporation, as Chile, with its low costsi
holds the balance of power in
copper production.
, Chile owns the largest copper
deposits in the world, and produces
14,000,000 pounds monthly at a
cost slightly over six cents a pound
laid down in New York, exclusive
of taxes and interest. This cost is
