at 11 to all. Then they went ahead
to make it 11-13. Rupert tied the

Scoutmaster Presented With
Handsome Watch
On Christmas Eve Scoutmaster
Gale was called to a special meeting
arranged by the Scouts and Cubs
where Assistant Scoutmaster Arthur
Teabo presented him with a pocket
watch in the name of the Troop and
Pack. It was quite a surprise to
the Scoutmaster and after he had
fittingly thanked the Boys they gave
three rousing cheers.
A feature of the entertainment
was the unfaltering manner in
which every ohild rendered his or
her part. It showed that great
care had been given during the
training period, credit for which is
due Mr. Greenaway, and also Mrs.
J. Graham who assisted.
Praise is also due to the finance
committee, Mrs. H. F. Kergin and
Mrs. J. Trinder who made the enter tainment possible by providing
sufficient funds.
Thanks are due also to many
willing workers who helped' in
various ways, especially the elaborate decorating.
For quality and quantity the
Family Herald and Weekly Star,
Montreal, is the prudent farmer's
first choice. At $1 a year or three
years for $2 it is a marvel of value,
and all members pf the family get
wealth of reading of marvellous
interest.

High School Basketball
Games at Prince
Rupert
From the first toss off of the
basketball game played at Prince
Rupert, the Rupert girls were never
pressed though the Anyox quintette
battled gamely throughout the
match. The Anyox girls played an
excellent defence game and frequently broke up the well drilled combination of the stronger team. There
was just as much playing one end
of the floor as the other, but the
accurate shooting of the Rupert
girls enabled them to pile up the
score at each evening's play.
Anyox scored first both nights
and hopes ran high, but as the excitement grew our girls found the
basket more difficult to locate.
The first evening the score stood
10-2 at half time. There were then
a few substitutions and changes of
position on both teams, and at the
end of the nsxt period the score
was 14-6, Marjorie Cloke and Susie
Boddie being the point getters.
During the last quarter May Ness
and Susie Boddie for Rupert
brought the score up to 20-6.
The second evening all players
entered the game determined to
check more closely with the result
that more personals were called.
Off these our girls netted two points.
At half time this evening the score
was 8-6, at three quarters 12-6, the
final score being 18-6.
Scoring the first night was as
follows: Anyox: F. Cameron; L.
Dresser 2; M. Cloke 4; M. Dresser
W. Cameroir; K. Eve; F. Dodsworth.    Total 6.
Prince Rupert—Miss Susie
Boddie, 6; Miss Julia Walters, 4;
Miss May Ness, 10; Miss Margaret
Gilchrist; Miss Ella Steen; Miss
C. McLeod; total, 20.
Second night's play: Anyox, M.
Dresser 1, Kathleen Eve, W,
Cameron, Lillian Dresser 2, F.
Cameron 2, J. McDonald 1, M.
Cloke.    Total 6.

E. MOSS, Editor and Publisher.
Before our next issue is published  we will  have entered   upon
another year.    It will be a year
with great possibilites for this district.    The stage is all set for a
big expansion of the mining industry and everyone can calmly face
the  future  without apprehension.
Looking back over the past year
the district made considerable headway.   The Granby Consolidated
Mining  Smelting  & Power Co.
took over and developed the big
copper    property   adjoining,   the
Hidden Creek mine.    They also
developed the Bananza to a point
where it  will  shortly  become  a
producer.     They  have operated
the big plant  at Anyox  continuously throughout the year without a mishap, producing millions of
pounds of copper and giving employment to over 1000 men. During the   past   year   the   mining
industry of Alice Arm has employed more men than at   any
time since 1920.    The advent of
the Britannia Mning & Smelting
Co. Ltd. into the Alice Arm district is conclusive proof that the ore
deposits are large and rich enough
to undertake development work on
a large scale, and its success is not
doubted by anyone in the district.
The coming year holds promise of
being the banner year,  so often
predicted.   Certain it is that the
outlook was never brighter, or the
spirits of the people higher, and we
can all   welcome   young   1929
without a qualm as to how it will
treat us.
Liquor Checks Will Shortly
Be Published
The municipalities of B. C. which
were worrying lately about the receipt of their annual check of Government Liquor profits for Christmas, will get their usual checks
before the end of the year, stated
the Finance Department.
Much Satisfaction Was
Evident At Meeting
Marmot Metals
Entire satisfaction with the developments in connection with Marmot
Metals Co. Ltd. was expressed by
the shareholders at a special meeting in Vancouver Saturday afternoon. Tho meeting was called so
that shareholders who had any
questions to ask might be fully informed of what the directors are
doing.
In the absence of R. E. McKechnie, president of the company,
Nichol Thompson, vice-president,
took the chair. The secretary P. A.
White, read the reports of the
Stewart and Batten and Associates,
the company's consulting engineers,1
covering the five properties in which
Marmot Metals is now interested.
The report was considered satisfactory by the meeting. Major H.
W, M. Rolston, managing director,
explained the financial structure and
organization, showing how the qne
company dovetailed into the other
with the Marmot Metals shareholders participating in the success of
any one of the group. The other
properties in which Marmot is now
interested are the Glacier Girl, the
Bitter Creek, Melvine Syndicate and
Black Hill, the last two, declared
Major Rolston, being two of the
three most outstanding prospects
discovered during the past summer.
Major Rolston explained also
that it will not be necessary to sell
any more treasury stock during the
coming year, the company having
sufficient finances for all its 1929
obligations, with nearly one-third of
the stock still in the treasury.
All questions were answered and
the meeting closed with the usual
votes of thanks and confidence.
Government Will Discontinue
Bulletin
Following the publication of the
current issue of the British Columbia bulletin, Hon. W. C. Shelly
announced that the government had
decided to discontinue it because it
carried articles of decided political
complexion and in praise of cabinet
ministers. "The government will
not allow public money to be spent
to advertise it or for partizan political purposes," the minister said.
Visitor (speaking of little  boy):
"He has bis mother's eyes."
Mother:   "And father's mouth."
Child: "And brother's trousers."
NOW BEING DEVELOPED
Utility Mines No. 1 Limited have
taken over the Tiger and Kitsol Groups
in the Upper Kitsault Valley, and an
intensive program of development work
has been inaugurated.

Electrical   Prospecting
Counts As Assessment Work
Manitoba is thfi latest province
to count electrical prospecting of
mineral claims as assesment
work. British Columbia is the only
other important mineral producing
province that has not yet adopted
this,principle. Electrical prospecting has become an established
method of ascertaining the Ore
content of claims, and that it may
count as assessment work enables
an owner to save much time in
arriving at what his ground contains Such surveys are greatly
facilitating exploration of mineral
claims.

THE YEAR OF HOMEGOING.
Tho reaper threader lanen a bumper crap, and the aua at tke

to   cenrejor.    (InaeO—On   the   Uuchesa   of   Atholl,   homeward
hMad.
There has been a record crop. The West will continue to flourish. In a thousand cases, a few
years of struggle with nature has been rewarded.
And what will it mean? more roads, more cars, more
machinery, more streets and stores and homes and
radios. A brisker trade, more industrial activity in
the east, more shipping and more car loadings per
mile.   More wheels turning all over the country.
But the man whose labours by the favour of
Providence has been mainly responsible for all this.
His threshing done, he has time now to think of other
things than wheat and rain and frost and sun and
harvesters, and the rail and steamship companies are
anticipating his thought. In a few weeks now, there
will be a feverish packing of bags, a collecting of the
children, a donning of new hats and shoes and a rush
for the trains.
This, say the transportation officials will be the
year of the home-going. The English, the Jersey
Islanders, the Scotch and the Irish and the Continentals too The Canadian Pacific officials foresee so
great a trek, that they have already planned many
special trains out of the West, and many steamship
sailings which will facilitate the movement and ensure Christmas and New Tear's with the old folk
•nd An inexpensive journey in comfort and luxury.
The Minnedosa will give the more fortunate ones
a sailing from Montreal on November 28 for Glasgow,
Belfast and Liverpool. On the seventh of December
the Metagama and Montclare will sail from Saint
John, one for Cherbourg, Southampton and Antwerp
and the other for the Liverpool run. The Melita,
sailing on the fourteenth, will stop en route at St.
Helier with a large number of home-going Channel
Islanders and the Duchess of Atholl sailing on the
fifteenth will take the last of those going home for
Christmas via Glasgow or Liverpool. The sailing of
the Montroyal on the twenty-first is for those to
whom New Year's means more.
Just to illlustrate to what great extent a good
ivestem crop effects industry; one printing establishment was kept busier than usual for some time
printing an extra order of Canadian Pacific travellers
cheques and money orders. These will, an official
said, be sent or carried by homegoers to practically
every quarter of the civilized world, Whatever the
world crop conditions may be, the Canadian crop
will be appreciated almost wherever men eat bread, tit J
