Hockey League Banquet
Was a Big Time For
Thirty Guests Sat Down To
Elaborate Dinner
The innoh talked of banquet of
the Alioe Arm Hockey League has
come and gone. It was a night of
nights, and although it ham passed,
its memory will always he fresh to
those who were fortunate enough
to be present.
There were songs, speeches,
stories, piles of good things to eat,
etc. Everyone was iu the highest
spirits, and the whole celebration
rellccts great credit on those who
were responsible for its success,
and it was a fitting conclusion to
tlie most successful hockey season
ever held. Some good games of
hockey have been played this year,
but the best game yet played was
last Saturday night, when the combined teams and their supporters,
played the highest speed game this
year, with no rest between periods,
and no one had their skate on.
Owing to the fact that more
tickets were sold than had been
expected, the banquet was held in
the dining room of the Alice Arm
Hotel. Thirty guests sat down to
the dinner. The tables were placed L shaped and at the apex sat
the Chairman, Bert Kergin. On
hjsjgft were the Tiger team, while
onffia right reposed the Bears, and
facing the latter were the Wildcats.
• At the appointed hour, all was
in readiness, and the Chairman
gave the signal for the "face-off,"
and in no game this year did the
players commence with more
The Bumptiousness of the banquet surprised everyone, course
followed course in an endless procession. Roast turkeys were
everywhere, and the chief courses
were followed by all the frills
necessary to round off a high-class
.The boys were still partaking of
t'r"* latter courses, when the Chairman commenced the toast list,
which commenced the evening's
Following is the list of toasts:
"The King," proposed by the

"The Ladies," proposed by S. F.
D. Roe, responded by H. Fowler.
"King of Winter Sports," proposed by C. Warner, responded by
A. D. Yorke.
Presentations of souvenirs were
then made to various players and
Song by Mr. D. Falooner, "Time
enough for that said I."
Mr. Charlie Gordon then delighted his audience with a song of his
own composition, in which a number of hockey players were portrayed, and sung to the tune of "It
ain't going to rain no more." The
chorus of whioh was:
It ain't going to rain no more, no more,
Tbe ice is On the blink,
So all you Tigers, Wildcats, Bears,
Let's take another drink.
Among those who were called
upon during the evening to make
a short address, were: J. Strom-
beck, M. Smith, J. Anderson, Art.

ami, everybody present did justice to
it. ivii'. Dave Evans opened the supper by rendering that great Welsh
song "Hen Wlad fy Nhaddu," assisted
by all present in the chorus, and an
enjoyable evening was voted by every,
one present, and terminated in the
early hours of the morning..
New Business Blocks For
Alice Arm
Several new business blocks will
be erected in Alice Arm in the near
future in addition to those already
under construction. Mr. Steve
Dumas has purchased two lots
north of Mrs. Thompson's block,
and will erect a building 30 feet by
90 feet, two stories high. Sills for
the foundation are already on the
Boy McKinley, who has purohased the adjoining lot, has planned
for the erection of a building, 24
feet by 60 feet, two stories high,
and on the adjoining lot, J. Gallagher will erect a garage.

The following members of the
hockey league teams spoke a few
words ou behalf of the game: T.
W. Falconer, A. D. Yorke, Gus.
Anderson, Al. Falconer, Geo.
Young, C. Warner. Jack Morrison,
Harry Fowler, Wm. Cummings.
Choruses, music, etc. brought
the evening's jollification to a close
around the hour of midnight, and
with the singing of "Auld Lang
Syne," the curtain was rang down
on the first Hockey League banquet.
It is, however, the intention
that it shall not be the last, and
next year's affair will, if possible,
be more elaborate than this year.
The success of the evening, to a
large extent, was due to the spen-
did spread put on by Gus. Anderson, of the Kitsault Cafe, who
spared no pains in giving those
present a real banquet. The tables
were elaborately decorated, and
groaned beneath an imposing array
of eatables, that tempted the most
delicate of appetites.
Rev. W. E. Galloway Gives
Sermon On Juvenile Welfare
The Rev. W. E. Galloway, field
secretary for the Religious Educational Council of Alberta and
British Columbia, for the Methodist and Presbyterian Churches,
preached in the Union Church last
Sunday night. His sermon, on
"Educational Evangelism" was
listened to with rapt attention by
the large congregation.
It was a strong appeal for the
welfare of the boys and girls, emphasizing the importance of
formation rather than reformation
of character. "What onr boys and
girls will he ten years hence" the
speaker said," largely depends npon
the leadership and the training
given to them today by parents
and other leaders."

Anyox High School Boys
Win Both Basketball
Games with Rupert
Anyox and Rupert Boys Tie
For Championship
Girls Lose Both Gaines
The Prince Rupert High School
Basketball teams, both girls and
boys, paid a visit to Anyox over
the last week-end. Four games
were played all told, two each on
Friday and Saturday evenings.
The result of these games, which
were for the championship of
Northern B. C, and were return
matches for those that were staged
in the city to the south before
Christmas, was an even split. The
Rupert girls winning both their
games, and the boys dropping two.
In the lirst game on the card
Friday evening, the local girls
furnished the surprise of the season when they held the fast liupert
squad to a 14 to 17 score. The
visitors had the belter of the play
in the first half, but weakened in
the final ten minutes. The final
whistle finding the Anyox team
lighting hard for a win. Miss
Frizzel was tlie sharpshooter for
the winners with twelve points to
her credit. Misses Champion and
Moffatt counted for the losers witli
eight and six points respectively.
Rupert: L. Lowe-1, C. Johnson,
M. Long, C. Harvey-4, L. Frizzel-
12, F. Smith.
Anyox: Misses J. Moffat-6, M.

•J. Morley, B. Chapman, aud A.
The second meeting between
these two teams, which took place
on Saturday evening, was even
more keenly contested than the
lirst. The first quarter saw some
real snappy play featured by close
checking by both sides, neither
team being able to count. The
local girls stepped into the lead
after the interval, and were still iu
the lead at the half way mark.
The Rupert squad forged ahead,
however, iu the third period, and
held their lead to the end. The
final score being 12 to 10. Miss
Frizzell again led the score for
the winners with nine points, and
Miss Champion was high for the
Anyox team with five.

Superior combination and high
class shooting by Teddy Swanson
was the downfall of the Rupert
boys in Friday's encounter. The
visitors had a slight edge in the
first half, and looked like winners,
but the tide turned in favor of the
local boys in the second period,
when they snowed the opposition
under an avalanche of baskets.
Several baskets from the vicinity
of the centre line by Teddy Swanson was the outstanding feature of
the evening. Teddy led the
scorers for the local boys with 20
points to his credit. Walker was
high for the losers with 6. Eddie
Dupuis was a tower of strength on
the defense for the Anyox five,
breaking up play after play started by the opposition. Katsnyame
also played well for the visitors.

must remain in force, and the discrimination in regard  to railroad
rales in this province will continue,
but the fight is not yet over, as the
C. P. R., eastern manufacturers and
Winnipeg jobbers will quickly discover.    Is it any wonder  that the
growth of the Dominion is retarded,  when such a   near   sighted
policy is advocated by the C.P.R.,
and eastern manufacturers.   British
Columbia, is entitled to the same
freight rates for her goods as the
rest of Canada,   Under the present    system,    British    Columbia
manufactured goods, fruit, lumber,
and a host of other commodities
are paying a much higher railway
rate to get their   goods   to  the
prairies than are the eastern provinces,  although the    market   is
closer to us, and rightly belongs to
us.    If the manufacturers  of the
east can not compete on an even
footing with British Columbia, with
its higher wage scale,  it is time
they  closed up   shop,   and   the
earlier the C. P. R.  realizes that
its high rates are crushing the life
out of the province, and retarding
its natural growth, the better it will
be for all of us.
Although the people of the province are quite justified in raising a
howl regarding high railway rates
they hav'nt much of an idea of
what high freight rates signify unless they happen to live on the north
coast.    To us the frieght rates of
the shipping companies  hits one
slap in the face at every turn.
There is no escape for anybody.
We pay tribute to the  Steamship
Companies for everything we use.
If we find it necessary to  build a
house, the freight rates on  lumber
equal its cost in Vancouver.    Because the north is composed chiel
ly of  small  communities   we  are
rode over  rough  shod,  and   the
iron heel of the steamship companies is on our throats,    Is it any
wonder that when  a person has
accumulated  a respectable   bank
roll that he leaves the country, and
a good citizen is lost to the community.   A fight for lower freight
rates on the coast may  not be as
spectacular as the present railway
fight, but it is certainly needed far
more.    It is time the pioneers of
the north ceased to be penalized.

In this article, Mr. Nichols gives
some interesting figures regarding
mineral claims that are very seldom published.
"The text of this survey of the
mining situation in British Columbia is to be found in a statement
made by Prof. R. P. D. Graham in
his exhaustive contribution to the
proceedings of the Empire Congress
on 'Mines and Mineral Deposits of
Canada," in which he said "The
remarkable feature of the growth
of Canada's mineral industry is,
that it has been due to a regular
succession of discoveries," and he
went on to stress the point by saying "Fully one half of the value of
the present metalliferous production comes from districts in which
the mine bad barely started production ten years ago."
These remarks are applied to tbe
whole of  Canada  and   we   know
that they are particularly   revelant
to the case of British Columbia.      j
The picture that is presented is
one of new stars continually arising, |
and it follows, almost,  necessarily
that   others   are   setting.      With
this conception we  are  enabled  to
view   with   more  equanimity    the
stars that have set below our  present horizon."
There are plenty of them, the
Payne, the St. Eugene, the Silver
King, the Yroir, the Rossland
Camp, and others too numerous to
mention here, and the question
arises: Can we establish the fact
that there is a concomitant array
of stars, of varying magnitude,
showing above the opposite horizon; have we results, in other
words, proportionate to the effort
that is being manifested, to justify
the claim of new discoveries, pointing to a continuance of such progress as is indicated by our increased production. To change
our metaphor, is the pot boiling
or has it gone off the boil.?
Let us first consider the effort
that is being put in to keep the
pot on the boil."
There are about 20,000 persons
in British Columbia who are in-
dentilied with the work of mining. Rather more than one half
of this number arc engaged in assisting production in taking out
what we have got, and rather less
than one half are trying to (ind
From every other one of the
latter army, one mineral claim is
recorded each year and it ftiay be
estimated from the records, that
something over half a million
dollars worth of work is done on
prospects, annually, in the effort to
keep the pot boiling."
During tlie past 5 years over, 18,-
000 mineral claims have been
located. Of these over 1,300 have
been crown granted, about 6,000
are live issues, over 11,000 have
gone into the discard, and there
are about 100 shippers at the pro-
sent time."

Interesting Figures on Mining
Given by H. G. Nichols
(Jontinuetl from Page 2
In other words, within this period nearly three million dollars
worth of work may be estimated
to have been done in order to get
returns from every one of 200
olaims investigated."
Considerable effort is implied by
these figures. What are the
results, how many notable pros-
speets have we at this time on
which to base our claim to inarch
with the mining industry of
Canada in its progress through
successive discoveries? Let us
survey the field."
Commencing at the northern
boundary of the Province, one may
note in passing the reported discovery of placer gold near Car-
cross, in its bearing upon tho gold
possibilities of the Atlin District.
Serious attempt is being made to
determine tbe resources of the
much discussed Engineer Mine.
It will be remembered that its
records show that ore of a value of
over $6,000 per ton in gold was obtained from pockets in a complex
series of veins ranging from a few
inches to 30 feet wide, in one of
which in particular the recurrence
of the pockets was sufficiently
frequent to justify the impression
of a continuous shoot of very high
grade ore. Reported discoveries of
placer gold in the Cassiar district,
together with the imminent
activity iu hydraulic mining of the
bench gravels in the Dease country
are likely to induce an influx of
prospectors into this little known
country in which there are possibilities for lode milling: these
possibilities are in relation to the
Coast range deposits; the quartz
veins of the older sedimentaries lying between this range and the
Cassiar Mountains; and to contact
metamorphic deposits around the
exposure of granitic rock associated with the latter range."

Anyox High School Boys Win
Basketball Games
Continued from page 1
Saturday evening's encounter
between these same two teams
was easily the linest exhibition of
the hoop tfauio 8eeM (,, these parts
for some time. The Anyox quintette had things all their own way.
In the lirst hall' their combination
play seemed to have their opponents balfled. The score at the
end of the lirst twenty minutes
was 22 to S. Rupert came back
with a rush upon the resumption
of play, aud were leading by two
points within two minutes of the
liual whistle. Phillips, however,
fouled Swanson under the basket,
and Teddy complied by converting
both shots, tieng the score. After
a rest of live minutes play was resumed for the customary live
minutes each way of the overtime.
The teams were still on even terms
at the cross-over 33 to 33. The
local boys were not to be denied,
however, and succeeded iu outscor-
iiig the visitors 7 to 2 in the last
live minutes. The final count being 40 to 35. Swanson again led
the scorers for the evening with 21
points. Phillips and Alex. Mitchell
were the high scorers for the
losers with 12 and  10 respectively.
Rupert: Phillips-12, Baisler,
McLean-9, Mitchell-10, Katsuyame,
Anyox: Swauson-21, McDonald?
8, McLachlan-4, Dupuis-5, E. Clay.
Ltusoreck-2, Asimus.
As the local boys were the winners in both games here, therefore
tieng up the series, it was decided
to award the Championship to the
teams which scored the largest
total in tlie four games. But upon
totalling up the respective scores it
was discovered that each side had
112 points. The scores in Bupert
were 34 to 24 and 19 to 9. As the
way is not clear to arrange any
more inter-city High School games
this season, it was decided to let
the series stand at the tie. The
lupert girls, howevere, by vitrue
if winning all four contests, are
the 1924-1925 Champions.
Mr. Geo. Lee refereed all the
games here, and handled the
whistle to the complete satisfaction
of all concerned.
There were two exhibition games
played during the series, the one
on Friday being between the
Amazons and the Ama/onians.
The latter winning by a nine to
eight score. The Amazonians
were made up of several of the
players from the Ladies' League,
while the Amazons were five of
the local men masquerading as
female vamps.
Saturday's exhibition contest
was a league fixture in the boarding house league. The teams
furnishing the thrills and spills representing the Club House and the
Pioneer Mess. The Club House
Sourdoughs were declared the winners after thirty minutes of hectic
battle by the score of 12 to 7.
Manager A. Sinclair was unfortunately unable to take part
owing to an injur? he sustained in
a practice match, the Club House
missed their star performer very
much. The Mess were so certain
of victory that they spotted their
opponents two points at the start
of hostilities.
The Teams were:
Pioneers: A. Nickerson, D. Cleal,
W. Evans. O. Rowland, Basil
Sourdoughs: J. Hill, W. West-
wood, D. McKenzie, M. Thomson,
S. Armstrong. II. Cornish, and
Capt. Chris Cane.
