sity of a bridge at this point.
logging operations this year at Alice
Arm have taken a considerable
quantity of timber from their holdings on the Kitsault River flats since
they commenced operations last
spring. Slightly over 8,000,000
feet have been shipped to the big
paper making plant at Ocean Falls.
There are 2,250,000 feet in the
water, and booming operations on
these logs is Hearing completion.
There is a considerable quantity of
logs yarded in the woods and
shortly after the New Year, Mr.
J. O, Trethewey estimates \hat
there will be a total of 4,000,006
feet yarded , ready for hauling to
the watej*. This will make a total
of 9,250,000 feet of lumber that has
been logged this year. The 4,000.
000 feet now being yarded has all
been taken from Lot 60, which
comprises 95 acres of timber laud
Mr. Trethewey stated" to, the
Herald that owing to high cost of
insurance during the winter
months no booms will be shipped
south until next May.
It is proposed to continue logging
operations throughout the winter.
At "itte present time one yardert
engine is being used instead of two
and the railway will not be operated
until next spring, other landings for
logs will be Used on the Illiance
river independent of the railway.
During the week the working staff
has been reduced, and about thirty
men are now employed, If the
weather conditions 'are favorable
after the New Year, p, full force
will again be employed*, Mr.
Trethewey stated that logging
operations would-be carried on the
whole of next summer and also part
of the following summer. Arrangements are being made whereby the
Granby Co., who will be operating
camps here next summer, will use a
part of the railway of the Abbots*
ford Logging Co. and vise-versa.
Fishing is Good
At Alice Arm
The big spring salmon are already
disporting themselves in the Alice'
Arm inlet. Mr. Harry; Fowler
brought in two fine specimens of
the finny tribe on Wednesday,
which he obtained' by trawling.
One of the beauties tipped the
scales at 37 pounds, and the other
weighed 22 pounds. Fifty-nine
pounds of good spring salmon in a.
few hours is pretty good fishing,
and anyone who is a follower of
Isaac Walton can appreciate the
pleasure -and excitement afforded
in landing these big fish.;
Alice Arm Contractors Have
Completed Work
The local contractors who left
last summer to construct the
Hyder-Stewart government road
have completed their contract.
fThey finished the polishing process
simultaneously with the first fall
of: snow. It is conceded by everyone that the construction of the
road is one of the finest pieces of
road work to be found in the north.
All the contractors were good
hard rock men, and well known

Canada's Debt is
Still Increasing
Increase of $27,000,000 for
Month of November
Ottawa, Dec. 6.—An increase of
$27,816,530 in the net debt of
Canada during the month of November is shown by the statement
issued by the department of finance.
November 30th. Canada's debt
stood at |2,414,641,424, while at
the end of the previous inonth it
was 12,386,824,893. On November
30th. 1922, the net debt amounted
to $2,391,635,818, being an increase
of $21,876,1$2 oyer the total on
October 31st of the same year.
The heavy increase in the net
debt for November, as compared
with October, it is explained, is due
to interest payments on the 1918
and 1919 Victory loans which fell
due on November 1. Interest
payments in November were $41,-
893,587 in comparison with only
$2,629,860 in October.        i
The apparent discrepancy
between an increase in net debt of
$27,000,000 for the month of November and one of $21,000,000 foR
the eight months ended November
30, is accounted for by the fact
thae some of the months, as. did
October, have shown decreases in
net debts. >,
Large Increase in Canadian
National Railway Earnings
Canadian National Earnings--A
gain of over one million dollars in
the gross earnings during October
is shown by"a recent statement, of
the* Canadian National Bail ways.
The substantial increase shown in
the report of operating results for
the month is $1,407,686, or 5-6 per
cent., as compared with Ootober,
1922. After deducting operating
expenses, which amounted to $21,-
223,525, a net operating revenue is
shown for the month amounting to
$5,163,470. as compared with net;
operating revenue is shown for the
month, amounting to $3,295,693 for
the corresponding month of 1922.
The net earnings for the first ten
months of 1923 amount to $12,021,
285, as compared with a' net of $3,-
825,007 for the first ten months of
last year, an increase of $8,198,278,
or 214.4 per cent. The operating
expenses, increase and percentage
for Octdber, were both decreases.

The great ambition' of the
different provincial governments, the
federal government and municipalities throughout Canada, at the
present time is to spend the largest
amount of money in the shortest
ssible itiihe. When this mad
orgy will stop no one seems to know
and very few seem to care, The
gross debt of the,province today is
$71,432,261, and the Dominion of
Canada's debt stood at $2,414,-
#41,424 on November 30th.
These debts' are increasing, aiid
With every prospect of still further
increasing. The cities throughput
the Dominion are all carrying
enormous debts, and these debts, in
numerous cases are also still
increasing. The whole trouble
seems to lie in the fact that those
elected by the people to manage
their affairs, lose all sense of reason
when they obtain the
pleasure of spending other
people's money. These men
are elected for a few years, and
then are either kicked out bf office
or retire and leave the worry of
cleaning up the mess to their successors. Another party is elected, and they duplicate the actions
of their predecessors, and so the
game goes on merrily on. But a
show-down will eventually arrive
if the present system is continued,
for the high taxation is gradually
forcing the people from the country.
The only way to reduce taxation
per capita is to either curtail expenditure or increase the population.
By increasing taxes the goose that
lays the golden egg is being slowly
killed, for the more intelligent portion of the people pack their grip
and leave. The reduction of taxation throughout the Dominion by
the/different governments and municipalities, would mean the establishment of new industries, these
industries would employ large numbers of men, and the farmers would
then have, a larger home market
for their products.   The estal

Dunwell Mine Gives
New Sensation
Portland Canal News
An important strike was made
last week in the No. 2 tunnel of the
Dunwell mine, when high grade
gold ore was encountered at the
intersection of two quartz seams
in the east-west vein. The ore is
similar to that from one of the
surface cuts where values in gold to
$90 per ton with over 100 ozs. silver were obtained. It was mainly
on account of this high grade gold
ore that the No. 1 tunnel was
driven but although high grade ore
was struck, the values were mostly
in silver the gold values seldom
exceeding $24 per ton.
In-ihe No. 2 tunnel this high-
grade silver ore has been drifted on
for 150 feet, but no high values in
gold were met with until the intersecting quartz seam was stuck, with
values in gold up to $60 per ton and
170 ozs. silver. Oh the dip of the
vein this ore is about 160 feet below
the outorop from where the first
high grade gold ore was found.
After the ball was over,
She took out her old glass eye,
Put her false teeth in the basin,
Washed off the paint and dye.
Threw her wooden leg hi a oorner,
Hung her false hair on the wall.
