Alice Arm  Celebrates
Annual Christmas Tree
And Entertainment
The Annual Children's Christmas Tree and entertainment of
Alice Arm was held on Tuesday
evening, in the spacious Coliseum. The large hall was
paoked to the doors and the
, general expression of the delighted
audience at the conclusion was
that it was better than ever.
The evening's programme consisted of an entertainment given
by the ohildren, which was followed by a visit from Santa Claus.
A supper followed the distribution
of presents, and a dance terminated the evening's jollification.
The entertainment given by the
r-children drew rounds of applause
from the audience as each item of
the programme was carried. All
the children played their parts remarkably well, and the clever
dancing and acting of some of the
elder children, was flawless. The
younger children also fulfilled the
highest expectations of their instructors, who are to be congratulated upon the splendid performance of their pupils.

At the conclusion
Esperanza Mine Adds
a New Ore To Its
Mineral Wealth
The Esperanza Mine, which has
been a steady shipper for a number
of years, of high grade silver ore,
and from which metal its revenues
were obtained, will no longer be
dependent exclusively upon the
white metal for the success of its
operations if predictions come true,
It appears that the mine carries
a considerable amount of sheelite,
a rich tungsten ore. This fact was
.first brought to the notice of the
management by Mr. F. D. Rice,
whose curiosity was aroused regarding it. He sent a sample for
assaying to Anyox, and it was
proven to carry tungsten
The ore is of yellowish brown
color, and is found throughout the
mine, and was formerly considered
worthless. Further tests will be
made and information gained
garding treatment, etc.
Tungsten is used for eleotrio
lamps, it is also used to harden
and toughen steel. It has always
been considered a valuable metal,
but at the time of writing the
market price has not been ascertained. -
"A rich"
sTToot' "bTTifgli ~gra-i~bre
containing native silver has also
been encountered in the tunnel
above the Baldy, but owing to the
accumulation of second grade ore in
the tunnel, mining of it has been
postponed.
Owing to insufficient snow making the use of sleighs impractable
no ore has been shipped from the
mine for the past two weeks, and
until the ore congestion at the
mine has been relieved by shipping
the mining of the new found high
grade shoot will be held up.
Christmas Celebrated At
Alice Arm By Numerous
House Parties
        of the enter-
Continued on page 4
The people of Alice Arm
celebrated Christmas with their
usual hospitality and jovility.
Real Christmas weather prevailed,
the ground being sprinkled with
snow, and the air crisp, without
extreme cold.
Numerous house parties were
held, and the bachelors were
pretty well taken care of by the
married folks, who issued dinner in-
vatations with a free hand.
The largest house party was
held at the home of Mr. and Mrs,
H. F. Kergin, who were hosts at
dinner to a large gathering. The
number was considerably augmented during the evening, until at 11
o'olook over fifty guests were enjoying themselves dancing, playing
bridge or other diversions. An
orchestra was in attendance, to
entertain the dancers, and the
happy throng dispersed around 3
a.m. more firmly convinced than
ever that Bert and Mrs. Kergin, as
entertaining hosts are unexcelled.
Presentation Made To Mrs.
F. M. Kelley By Dancing
Class Pupils
As last Saturday was the last
occasion on which the Anyox
Dancing Class would meet before
Christmas, the pupils of Mrs. • F.
M. Kelley took the opportunity of
presenting their teaoher with a
case containing half-a-dozen silver
spoons. Although advantage was
taken of the Christmas season to
make the gift, it was more an expression of appreciation of Mrs.
Kelley's unfailing kindness and
patience with the girls during the
years they have been under her
tuition, ^o carefully had the
twenty odd girls kept their secret
that not even a' hint of it reached
Mrs. Kelley, and the little present
was the complete surprise it was
desired it should be.
ALICE ARM NOTES
Old Resident Conies Overland From Naas Valley To
Alice Arm
Mr. Charles Gordon, who was
one of the early residents of the
oamp, eight years ago, arrived in
Alice Arm on Tuesday from the
Naaa Valley. He came overland
by the Government telegraph trail,
and Was a trifle over two days in
making the trip. He was overtaken by darkness in the woods
on Monday night and spent the
night with the sky for a roof.
Charlie is now ranching iu the
Naas Valley, but will remain in
Alice Arm this winter. It is three
years since he was in Alice Arm,
and he was surprised at the large
number of new buildings erected,
and other improvements made
since that time.

Anyox Community
League Hold Their
Christmas Dance
The Christmas Dance, staged by
the Community League on Monday evening, was a huge success.
A large crowd was present and
the fun waxed fast and furious
from 9 p.m. until 2 a.m.. The hall
was very prettilly decorated, appropriate to the season. During
the course of the evening, confetti,
surpentines, paper hats and horns,
etc were passed among the guests,
Refreshments were served at
eleven o'clock, a huge Christmas
Cake was the peice de resistance, it
was wonderfully decorated and
composed of three decks, standing
about sixteen inches high. The
cake was supplied by the Bluebird
Cafe.
The Elks' five-peice orchestra
supplied the music, whioh was up
to their usual high standard.
Skating Is Popular
Outdoor Pastime
The Alice Arm hockey team
and fans are now enjoying them-
_?.}^isJ°Jhe f ull. During the past
two weeks, the thermometer has
ranged from four degrees of frost
to 3 below zero. The ice ou the
riiik is in perfect condition, aud
has been well patronized, both by
young and old of both sexes.
The hockey players have held
several practice games, and are
fast rounding into shape, and in a
few more days will be ready to
tackle any team from the outside,
who wishes to try conclusions with
them.
Skating is the healthiest outdoor sport obtainable, and as there
is no guarantee how long the ice
will last, no time should be lost by
those who contemplate using the
rink.

Happiness and prosperity throughout the coming year, is the wish
ofthe Herald to all its
readers
The present year is fast drawing
to a close and in a few days a new
year will be ushered in. In looking back over the past year, and
considering the unsettled conditions
in different parts of the world,
we are indeed fortunate to be
a part of such a prosperous community. While the district has
not experienced any spectacular
boom, steady progress has been
made, and solid foundations laid
upon which to build our future
prosperity. The big mine and
reduction plants of the Granby Co.
at Anyox, have operated uninterruptedly throughout the year, and
no accidents have occurred to
force a close-down of the plant.
The big ore concentrating mill,
which started operations early in
the year, is now working to
capacity and adding considerably
to the mineral wealth of the
province. While the price of
copper has been rather low
throughout the year, all signs now
point to an early rise in price, and
the coming year, will, let us hope,
be one of prosperity for the
Granby Co., for the prosperity of
the north depends to a large extent
upon the success of their operations.
This year has been one of the
most prosperous that Alice Arm
has ever experienced. Considerable logging operations have been
carried on, and during the latter
part of the year, mining activity
has increased. The coming year
promises to be even more prosperous than the future. A large
amount of timber remains to be
cut, and developments of the past
few weeks indicate that we are on
the eve of a mining boom of considerable proportions. The people
of Anyox and Alice Arm can
joyfully welcome the New Year,
for it promises to be a year of
plenty to all.
Mine Club Orchestra In
The Making
Card Game and Dance
The fourth of the current series
of card games wound up the social
events of the year at tho Mine Club
last Tuesday evening, and a happy
gathering enjoyed whist and
bridge and the dance that followed
iu the Hall. The card games are
reaching the keen competition
stage, as the scores are rapidly
totalling towards the big final.
Just who the headliners are going
to be is a problem remaining the
topic of the moment.
Prize winners on Tuesday were
Mrs. H .Talbot and Mr. M. Peterson for bridge, and Mrs. A. Dumont
and Mr. C. A. Allen for whist.
Consolation awards fell to Mesdames R. Manning, F. E. Patton
and to Messrs. F. E. Patton and
J. Francis.   .
The Mine Club are* staging no
less than five events in January,
and for their dances an agument-
ed orchestra is in course of training. The Club will soon boast of
a fully equipped organization:
violin, banjo, saxaphone, drums
and piano. The boys are working for the success of every little
detail.

•Lode-mining has only been in progress for about 33 years, and not 20 per cent of the Province has been
even prospected; 300,000 square miles of unexplored mineral bearing land are open for prospecting.
The Mining Laws of this Province are more liberal and the fees lower than those of any other Province
in the Dominion, or any Colony in the British Empire.
Mineral locations are granted to discoverers for nominal fees.
Absolute Titles are obtained by developing such properties, security of which is guaranteed by

ALICE   ARM   AND  ANYOX   HERALD,   Saturday,   December  27,   1924
Discoverers Of Cassiar
Gold Strike Real
Sourdoughs
William Grady, who with his
partner, Hugh Ford, made the
gold strike on Gold Pan Creek in
the Cassiar, last August, is no
novice in the mining and prospecting game. He has had as much experience in searching for the yellow
metal in the Northland as most
sourdoughs. And he knows a pay-
streak and a pay creek when he
finds them, too. Gold Pan is not
his first discovery. He mined and
prospected in the Northland for
fifteen or more years. He has
been iu the Klondike, Fortymile,
Nome. Fairbanks and copper river
camps, and is well-known throughout the Northland.
Hugh Ford, who has been call-
ad the silent partner of the strike,
also an old sourdough. He
■pitted down the Yukon on a raft
In '98 to the Klondyke gold diggings, and has lived in the north
Iver since, prospecting and hunting, and living in the big open
Ipaces.
Big Increase Shown In
Canada's Population
Half Of Canada's Population
Live In Country
Iu Manitoba 57.1 per cent.,
Saskatchewan 71.1 per cent., and
Alberta 62.1 per cent., of the population are actual residents on
farms. Quite a number of people
living in the urban centers also
operate farms. For the whole of
Canada, official figures show that
00.4 per ueu.b. of llie.popula.tio_-._iie
rural dwellers.
Estimates made by the dominion Bureau of Statistics shows an
increase of nearly half a million in
Canada's population . since 1921,
when the last census was taken.
Prince Edward Island and the
Yukon are the only districts showing a decrease. Canada's total
population for 1924 is estimated at
9,227,740, the increase being 438,-
257.
Spruce  Seed   Shipped   To
Scotland Is Satisfactory
A ton and a half of Sitka spruoe
seed was shipped from New Westminster, B C, recently to Scotland for the British Forestry commission. Reports from the Old
Country indicate that the Sitka
spruce seed has been found suit
able for much of the land in the
Scottish Highlands, and, where
the commissioner has undertaken
the task of replenishing the supply of timber, results have been
very satisfactory.

The Anyox High School Basketball teams returned from Prinoe
Rupert on the "Cardena" ou Monday. Although they were not
successful as far as winning games
was concerned, the boys and girls
are loud in their praise of the
Prince Rupert reception committees.
Tho big plump Christmas turkey
presented a sorry spectacle on
yesterday's dinner table.
The two students yawned:
"What shall we do tonight?" said
one. "I'll toss a coin for it," his
chum replied. "If its heads we'll
go to the theatre; if it's tails we'll
call on Nan and Bess; if it stands
on edge we'll study."
Let poets sing their lilting song,
And gaily'smite their lyre,
Give me the man   who   whistles
while
He's putting on a tire.

Alice Arm Celebrates The
Annual Christmas Tree And
Entertainment
Continued from Page 1
taiiiment, Santa Claus, who had
timed his visit to a nioety, burst
into the hall, and pandemonium
reigned supreme. After a few remarks to the ohildren, he distributed his presents to the ohildren.
No one was overlooked, and exclamations of surprise and delight
were heard on all sides as the children opened their parcels.
Following the distribution of
presents, candies, apples and
oranges, arrangements were, made
for supper, and the entertainment
committee supported by a band of
volunteers quickly bad everyone
supplied.
The floor was then cleared for
dancing, and the merry time was
continued until 1 a.m. when the
last of the revellers departed for
the family roof.
The music of the evening was
supplied by Mrs. T. W. Falconer,
piano; Mrs. J. Laidlaw, saxaphone;
Mr. C. Hutchinson, clarinet, and
Lome Falconer, violin.
Those serving on the different
committees, were:
Entertainment: Mrs. J. Laidlaw,
Mrs. G. W. Bruggy, Mrs. J.
Trinder, Mr. R. Gordon.
Finance: Mrs. J. M. Morrison,
Mrs. J. A. Wheatley, Mrs. H.
Mann.
Purchasing: Mrs. G. A. Young,
Mrs. Smith, Mrs. E. Moss.
Refreshments: Mrs. G. W.
Bruggy, Miss B. D. D. Crawford,
Mrs. ,G. AndersonA
Decorating: Mrs. A. Falooner,
Mrs. H. F. Kergin, Mrs. J. Hanna.
Too high praise cannot be given
to the above committees for the
large expenditure of time and
labor they made to give the children a real good time, and that
their efforts were not in vain was
evidenced by the happy faces of
the children.
It was a night when the children held sway. They provided
the whole entertainment, the success of which amply rewarded
their instructors.
The hall was beautifully decorated with evergreens and Christmas
ornaments. The tree was a scene,
of splendour, and electric lights
added to the brightness of the
scene. The lights were obtained
by connecting wires with the
system at the Alice Arm Hotel.
Tlie ladies of tlie committees
wish to thank all those who helped in any manner towards the
evening's entertainment, and assure them that if it had uot been
for their generous assistance, suoh
success could not have been attained.
So many were the volunteers,
that space does not permit the
mentioning of them all, but perhaps special mention should be of
Messrs. J. Trinder and H. Mann,
who worked so assiduously both in
training the boys and in numerous
other way's.
