Elks' Carnival
Great Success
On Friday, Deoember 8th, the
Elks' Hall was transformed into
a regular Country Fair, with its
barkers, shell game artists, hot dog
men, 'n everything.
To start the riot, the visitor
exchanged perfectly good Canadian
dollars for a .brand of phony simo-
leons,, whioh a couple of quiet, cool,
calculating individuals named Sam
and Pete, generously turned over at
the rate of $100.00 for 10 cents.
Then the "come on" was invited
by "Bill" to try his luok at an old
Soldier game, oalled "Crown and
Anchor." ... If Bill could not clean
the boys, another old soldier game,
"Housie, Housie" was forcibly presented by Timothy and another
Bill.    .
"Fatima," th% Egyptian palmist, in a quiet comer, did a little by
.way of collecting a few stray
thousands. Two other games of
chance, at which a lucky player
was rewarded With a box of
chocolates, cigarettes, or small
kewpies, were operated by two
gents..called "Ed,juid Sid." \\j$$0{
to add a touch of human kindness,
"Jimmy and George" dispensed hot
dogs and coffee.
Downstairs, one landed into a
regular bedlam, mixed with
Barnum and Bailey, and Ringling
Brothers. Different side-shows, in
which for $100.00, one could see all
the wonders of the world.
On the top floor, three husky
, voiced individuals, who all answered to the name of Fred, did a
roaring business with a spinning
wheel, which occasionally awarded
a kewpie beauty to a lucky player.
The greater-part of the hall was
devoted to dancing, which was
well patronized. Excellent music
being supplied by Mrs. Ed.
Swanson, piano; A. Ross, saxa-
phone; J. Prevost, banjo mandolin;
J. Tynmouth, drums.a
Alice Arm Skating
Rink is Now Open
Thanks to the untiring efforts of
several of the energetic citizens of
the town, the Alice Arm Skating
Rink was able to be opened to the
public, on Sunday last, at 12
A large number of persons availed themselves of the opportunity to
again skim the surface of the rink
and later in the afternoon, a hookey
game, composed of local players
was held. During the week, the
rink was well patronized, and a
successful season of sport can be
looked for.

Milligan, at Smithers Hospital, on

Alice Arm Skaters
Hold General Meeting
The Annual Publio Meeting of
the Alioe Arm Skating Arena, was
held on Saturday evening at the
Anglican Churoh.
The finances of the organization
were fully discussed. It was
decided that the rules and regulations governing the rink should
be the same as they were last year
but that they be more strictly
enforced, as it was felt that not
enough consideration was given to
beginners last year. The rules,
governing the rink as to hours for
hockev, are: from 1 to 2 p. m,
no. hockey sticks. allowed on ice;
from 2 to 3 optional; from 3 to 4
for children; from 4 to 5 hookey
players. Those learning to skate
will also have the whole morning
for practice, if the ice is in condition. ,
The price of Season Tickets has
been reduced this year. Gentle-
mens tickets will be $7.50; ladies
$3.00; ohildren $1.00. There Was
some discussion as to the
iadvisability.of reducing prices, but
it Was felt that as considerable,
indebtedness was paid off last year
and that as the syndicate were
now in a better financial condition
that the reduced prices would help
considerably to make the rink even
more popular than in the past, and
that it would also encourage those
who can not skate to take up the
sport; It is not the wish of the
officers of the syndicate to make
any profit this year, and if they
get the full support of the citizens
of the town it is anticipated that
the above prices' charged will
enable them to meet all expenses
and that is all they desire.
Following is the financial statement for the season of 1921, and
also the financial standing at the
present time! *

Alice Arm Holds
Weekly Debate
The weekly debate of the Alice
Arm Debating Society, was held
in the Coliseum, on Tuesday, evening, at 8 p.m., followed by a
Five-Hundred Drive. A large
number of people were present, and
a very instructive and enjoyable
evening was spent.
The subjeot debated was:
"Resolved that Navigation is more
beneficial to the world than Railways." Speakers for the affirmative, were: Mrs. R. F. McGinnis,
J. M. Morrison,' T. W. Falconer.
Negative: Miss B. Crawford, H.
Fowler, M'D. Ross. On account
of the card party following the
debate, each speaker was limited
to five minutes each.
H. Fowler started the ball
rolling for the railroaders. He said
that in regard to Canada, she
could do without navigation, as
the country-couldsupport itself and
grow fat.
Mrs. McGinnis in the course of
her remarks, said: boats brought
us or our ancestors over here, aud
without navigation thore would be
no nations in America.
Miss Crawford maintained that
the vast interior of Canada could
not have been developed without
railroads, and that they were mote
essential to the prosperity of any
country than navigation.
T. W. Falconer, who presented a
host of facts in favor of navigation,
said: navigation has always been
the means of international intercourse. It was instrumental in
settling up the globe. The world
got along very weir without railroads until a few years ago, but
could never get along without
navigation. .

Weekly Meeting of
Anyox Community
League Council
The regular weekly meeting of
the Community League Counoil
was held in' the Rest Room
December 13th. This meeting was
to have been held at the Mine Hall,
but owing to the concert of the
Union Church being held there and
a rehearsal of the numbers for the
show in aid of the Vancouver
Province Xmas Tree Fund going
on in the Reoreation Hall, the
Counoil decided to meet in the Rest
Room. i
The minutes of the preceding
meeting were read and approved
on motion of Mr. Lowry, which
was seconded by Mr. Rowley.
The Secretary reported as
follows: Watch fobs for the baseball champions would be in
Thuraday's mail, while those for
the football winners arrived last

who came here in answer to our
advertisements and letters for a
music teacher, informed me that he

of January and remain-if the
number of pupils'continued to
warrant it. Matters are progressing favorable for the Children's
Party as well as for the Christmas
Dance of the League. The decorations ordered from outside have

The correspondence consisted of
two letters from Spalding, Bros,
one telling of watch fobs being
forwarded, the other quoting the
price on rubber-tired roller skates
From the Mine Club there was a
notification that their proposed
amendments to - the League's
proposals had been endorsed at a
regular meeting of the Club. On
a motion of Mr. Lowry's, which
Was seconded by Mr. Rowley, the
Secretary was instructed to advise
the Mine Club that the proposed
amendments would be considered
only in so for as the section
relating to representatives oil the
League Counoil was concerned,
This motion was carried unanimously. •
A lengthy discussion took place
in connection with the gymnasium,
its equipment and general supervisions. The necessity of having a
care-taker, the probable profits
from a refreshment stand, its-
location and the possible sources of
revenue were all discussed.
Progress in connection with the
rink and Xmas Entertainments
was reported.

of Anyox.      «
The different organizations of
Anyox are doing a large amount of
good in their different spheres.
The oldest established organization,
the Anyox Community League is
still going strong. The new
gymnasium will soon be ready.
All kinds of winter sports can be
indulged in. The new rink is
now just about ready for the
followers of that exilirating sport
and the League Council is at all
times ready to study the wishes of
the members, in all kinds of sports
and recreation, both for the mind
and body. The Benevolent and
Protective Order of Elks, which
also has a large membership, have
already instituted some novel entertainments this winter, and more
will be forthcoming before the
snow is off the ground; The
members have a large and spacious
building for recreation etc. The
officers of Anyox Lodge No. 47
are a "live wire" brigade, and the
local Lodge fills a long felt want
in the smelter town. The North-,
ern Polytechnic Institute cater to
those who wish to improve their
education. A large number of
pupils are availing themselves of
the golden opportunity to increase
their knowledge, and classes will
continue throughout the winter.
The newly organized Mine Club,
is doing splendid work on the hill,
in organizing social events, recreation etc. for the residents at the
mine, and if the present policy is
continued, the Mine Club will
become a permanent institution.
The Parent-Teacher Association,
which was formed for the purpose
of fomenting a co-operative spirit
between the parents and teaching
staff of the schools, is meeting with
success, and a large amount   of
good work has been done since it's
inauguration. The various Church
organizations, contribute in no small
measure towards making life
happier for the people of Anyox,
and a co-operative spirit prevails
between the churches, which is
very often lacking in other towns.
The Service Association, formed
by Ex-Service men, is doing a
splended work, in giving a helping
hand to Ex-Service men in distress,
and many returned men, have had
cause to bless the Association
since it's inauguration. The
Hospital Ladies Auxiliary is an
Association formed by a band of
eager workers, who are doing
their utmost to alleviate the suffering of the hospital patients.
This little band of workers do
their work quietly and unostent-
iously. They do not seek publicity.
They are perfectly satisfied with
the results of their labors,
and the plaudits of the public mean
nothing to them. Anyox is
fortunate in possesing so many
public spirited men and women
eager to give their time for the
benefit of their fellow men, and
every resident of Anyox, should,
in some way or another help the
good work along by joining one or
more'of the above mentioned
institutions, and taking an active
part in their affairs.
Lumber Industry
Has Big Payroll
British Columbia's payroll for
the lumber industry in 1922 will
run over $20,000,000, according to
offioials of the provincial government, who have based their
calculations on returns from 532
firms, whose statistics show that
in 1921 the payroll amounted to
$18,180,962, with an average
number of wage earners of 14,500.
Many plants that were idle have
resumed operations, and even those
which kept going all the time
through 1921 have increased their
It is confidently expected that
that this year will show a big
increase over 1921, and the $20,
000,000 mark is said to be on the
conservative side.

Are You a Success?
The man who does not and can not
save money will not do anything else
worthwhile. The best way to accuni'

fixed portion of your income, no
matter how small the amount is.
—Andrew Carnegie.
If you want to know whether you
are destined to be a success or not,

The test is simple and infallible.

Alice Arm Weekly Debate
Continued from page 1.
' M. D. Ross oriticized the
remarks of his opponents and
said: Railroads brought the
produce to the coasts and made
navigation possible. Navigation
only developed a fringe along the
coast lines, and Canada would
have no international standing
without railroads.
J. M. Morrison, who was the
last speaker for the sailors, said:
freight can be shipped more cheaply
by river boats and motor trucks
than by railroads, and railroads are
more dependent on navigation,
than navigation is on railroads.
M. D. Ross, in a 3-minute
rebuttal, extensively criticized the
remarks of his opponents, and thus
ended the'debate.'
On the vote being taken, the
railroaders were declared the
winners. The vote being: railroads 29, navigation 8,
The Five-Hundred Drive was

pleasant evening was spent in
playing cards. The winners were:

Explosion at Premier
Was Big One
Regarding the recent acoident at
the Premier mine, in whioh one
man was killed and four others
severely injured, the Portland
Canal News, says: the explosion
ooour^red in the temporary magazine, which contained eight oases
of powder.
The force of the concussion was
so great that air pipes and track
for a distance of about 400 feet
were torn up, bent and twisted,
The same fate befell the steel cars
that were being taken into the
mine; they being in some cases
badly battered. It was while
pushing these oars into the mine
that the men were injured.
