lockey Season
Opens at
Alice Arm
I The. first  hookey game of the
|ason was played at Alice Arm,
Monday, December 26th, when
ie married and single men of t|e
wn played an exciting and highly
teresting game. I
The  married   men    were    the
avier team and they alsopossess-
the more experienced players.
!he game started with a rush and
)th sides were out to win. The
arried men scored their first
pal after 12 minutes of play and
IjJe single men equalized 5 minutes
iter, Oatman scoring the only
oal obtained by them throughout
ie game. In the second period
lie married men scored two more
loals. Don Cameron received a
lasty cut under his left eye from
pie flying puck and retired for the
alance  of  the game,   Marshall
Ifmith taking his place. The
tarried men were now demonstrat-
jieir. superiority and they were
ombarding the single's goal from
II angles, and Ross in goal was
fie of the hardest worked men ou
lie ice. He made some miraculous
jives, but it was impossible to save
Ihem all.
Oatman, the star forward of the
1 ingle team broke through several
i'mes and carried the game to the
pposing goal, but he did not
eceive; the .support of his teats
Iiates arid .his: efforts came to
ought.
In the third period the married
earn scored three more goals and
lie game ended with a score of
to 1 in favor of the married men.
The winners were on the offen-
ive all the time and their forwards
ilayed a dashing game and their
hooting was excellent;, their de-
ence was practically impregnable
rod Geo. Bruggy in 'goal was a
lower of strength to his team. He
;ook all "that Oatman could give
trim and was ready for more.      ;.
The line-up of the teams were:
Married Men; goal, G. Bruggy;

Hockey Notes and
Comments
Alice Arm have lost Jimmy
Campbell and Henderson this year,
but have gained Don Cameron and
E. R. Oatman.
Al. Falooiier and Gus Anderson
will bo on the forward line again
this year and they still possess the
same old dash, speed and shooting
qualities,
Alice Arm possesses a stone wall
defence in Bert Kergin and Don
Cameron.
Anything that gets by Geo.
Bruggy in goal this year has got to
be travelling some. ^
T. W. Falconer and M. D.
are just as good as ever and both
men are playing a brilliant game.
Mr. M. D. Ross had the misfortune to fracture his nose in the
praotice game on Friday, when he
collided with Don Cameron, and he
will not be able to play in the
game on Sunday.
E. R. Oatman, the new forward,
is' a' Brother 'or EdSie'Oatriian,"
captain of the Victoria hookfty
team. He is fast, trioky and a
dead shot, and is as clean a player
as ever donned a pair of skates;
Besides being a hockey player he
is a first-class baseball and tennis
player, also an accomplished musician and a dead shot with the rifle
and shot gun.
The first match between Alice
Arm and Anyox .will be played on
Sunday, JanUfry 1st, at Anyox
and a first-class game should result
When the Alice Arm team plays
in Anyox on Sunday, hockey fans
can be> sure of seeing a game full of
excitement from start to finish.
The Alice Arm team are a whirling
bunoh of humanity from the time
they are on the ice, and it is confidently expected at the Arm that
they will romp home easy winners.
.j:-V  • ....
It ^s  understood  that  Anyox
prefer* to play the 5 man game.
AliceJArm prefers the 6 man game
as wa| played last season, and will
go ,to|Anyox on Sunday with, the
idea of playing six men.   Six men
are^glayed  in;..j;he Pacific Coa^t
Hookky League and seven in the
n Leagues,.

Alice Arm Skating
Rink is Opened
i'
The  Alice  Arm  skating   rink
opened its second season last Saturday afternoon and the rink was
crowded both in the afternoon and
evening with skating enthusiasts
who were anxious to again stretch
their legs and indulge in the best
winter sport it-is possible to obtain.
The ice is in first-class condition
and throughout the: week the rink
has been well .patronised, both in
the daytime and the evening and
everyone has enjoyed themselves to
the limit. Alice Arm is to be congratulated on possessing such a
first-class rink- It breaks the
otherwise .jdjBll monotony of a
northern mining camp and affords
good healthy1 recreation for everyone who cares to a,vail themselves
of the opporiw^ity.1
The ante room a^jth'e south end
of the rink is ft; great convenience
both? for the skaters putting-on
their skates and also for tlwr'fans
at the hookey^games, who can get
thawed o$t«betwean the' periods
around the'r^hotftbve,.
Development Work
on Lion Group
Mr. Neil Forbes who was down
for supplies last week from the
Lion Group, states that the tunnel
being driven on the property is
already in sixty feet and that work
is progressing very satisfactorily.
The tunnel is to be driven 100 feet,
at which distance ore is expeoted to
be encountered, and the depth
obtained will be seventy feet.
The lead for which the tunnel is
being driven, has a wjdth on the
surface of 13 feet and has beer
traced for over 300 feet in length.
Samples taken from this lead, 10.
feet below the surface assayed 660
ounces silver per ton.
The Lion property is directly
opposite the town of Alice Arm on
the west side, and is about 2|
miles distant from the town -and
has an elevation of about 1400 feet.
It is very conveniently situated
regarding shipping facilities and
should ore be encountered this
winter, another mine will be added
to the string of Alice Arm

Here's a Happy and Prosperous New Year to you all, and
a-hoping that Silver will be a
$1.00 an ounce and Copper
25 cents per lb. before 1923.
Looking Backward
and Forward
Today brings the year 1921 to
a close and tomorrow ushers in a
new year and we hope the New
Year will also usher in the era of
prosperity which we have patiently
waited for. Looking back over
the past year we must admit that
it has not dealt unkindly with us
in this district, especially when we
consider the unemployment, starvation and privation, prevalent in
many other parts of the world.
While wages are not *as high as
they were a year ago, everyone
has managed to live comfortably
and no one has been denied the
necessities of life., It is exactly a
year ago that the first cut in wages
was made at Anyox; this was
followed by another cut on September 1 st. and was due in both
cases to the low price of copper,
and both cuts were necessary in
order to keep the big plant in
operation. Copper, however, is,
gradually increasing in price, it is
still hovering around 14 cents, and
a few more points increase will
give the people of Anyox 75 cents
per day increase in wages. It is a
pity it did not go over 14 cents
before the New Year, but if the
opinion of all the leading copper
experts count for anything it will
only be a matter of a few weeks
before we see 14 or 15 cent
copper and probably higher than
.that.
While mining has not been as brisk
at Alice Arm during the past year
as in some of the previous years,
yet Alice Arm has a lot to be
thankful for, and a lot of valuable
work that wi|l bear fruit in future
years has been done. During the
past year a wagon road nearly a
mile in length has been built to the
government wharf now under
construction. The Illiance River
trail has been put in first-class
condition and the Kitsault River
trail extended to the Glacier.
Several new buildings have been
erected. and others have been
enlarged, which is a good healthy
sign. Considerable development
work on mining properties has
been done during the past year
and large bodies of ore have been
proven up. Several new important discoveries of high grade ore
have also been made, and the
work done this year proves conclusively that Alice Arm is one of
the richest mining camps in British
Columhia. The eyes of the
mining world are turning on Alice
Arm and the coming year will see
a resumption of mining on a bigger
scale than has, been done in any
previous year. There is too much
ore in sight for it to lay undeveloped
and this year promises to be the
banner year of the camp.
The coming year will in all
probability see connections made
between Alice Arm and the Naas
Valley] also a bridge built across
the Kitsault River and the Wing
Dam lengthened. With this work
being done, together with a resumption of mining, Alice Arm can
look forward to a year of activity
aud prosperity.

W. J. E. Pamplin, Esq.
Treasurer,
Anyox Service Association,
Dear Sir:
I wish to express my deep
appreciation of j;he most liberal
manner in which the Ex-Service
men of Anyox and your Association
contributed toward the Poppy
Day Campaign and assure yoii
that the effort made so successfully
by your town is thought by this1
Command to be a splendid indica^
tion that the objects of Poppy Day
were so loyally and spontaneously
received.
Your letter and cheque for $128
has been handed to me by the
secretary of the local branch of the
G. W. V. A. and with the exception
of the $32 which you donate to the
Local Branch Fund, is being
applied to the Poppy Day Fund.
The $32 is being handed to Mr. P.
H. Smith, the Vancouver Branch
secretary.
From the general results throughout the Dominion it was fouud that
nearly three times the number of
poppies  could  have been sold if
they had been available and imported by the French committee
into this oountry. The lesson
gained during the last campaign,
however, will result in an adequate
number being available for next
year's effort, three months in
advance, whioh will insure everybody obtaining their full requirements. ■ ™*~..
Thanking yoli once again, and
assuring you that if at any time I
am able to be of assistance to the
Anyox Service Association, I will
be very pleased to do so.
Yours faithfully,
W. Drinnan

inadian Institute of
Mining to Meet in
Vancouver
Dolly Varden Mine Will
!        Be Discussed
The next Annual General Meet-
\    of   the   British   Columbia
vision of the Canadian Institute
Mining and Metallurgy, will be
(d in Vancouver during the first
iek  in   February,   1922.     The
stitute  charges itself with the
ity of stimulating in every  way
its power the development and
iustry of mining.   Essential to
at aim is the encouragment of
ospecting.    At the meeting, at
ist one session will be devoted to
e consideration and discussion of
i»ys  and   means  of   promoting
■ospecting  activity    in   British
ilumbia.     Information   will  be
■esented     indicating     potential
eas  yet   unprospected   in    tho
•ovince, supplementing which will
i data on such matters as acccess-
ility, conditions of travel, etc. in
lese  areas.   The  marketing   of
•ospects will also be debated, and
lere will bo general papers upon
ich themes as "Aerial photogra-
iv as am aid to the prospector"
id "The diamond drill as a means
prospecting ore bodies."
The coal industry of the province
ill be fully discussed and papers
ill be presented on the "Flotation
1 Coal," and on the "Production
id uses of pulverized coal."
The treatment of complex ores
pontinues to be a live issue in
British Columbia. Hence, an interesting contribution on this
subject by Mr. W. G. Wolf of the
Bunker Hill and Sullivan Mining
& Concentrating Company wilt
undoubtedly be appreciated,
The discovery of an important
oil field in the Mackenzie Valley
would undoubtedly be of immense
significance to this province. Mr.
M, Y. Williams' paper on the "Oil
possibilities of the Mackenzie
River" will therefore be of great
interest.
Other papers promised inolude:
"The Geology of the Britannia
Mine" "Mining and Metallurgical
Practice at the Britannia Mine,"
and "The Dolly Varden Mine,"
whioh last will deal in particular
with the mode of occurence of the
ore-body at this property.
At the preliminary hearing held
in Vancouver, on December 24th,
charges of criminal negligence Were
dismissed against C. P. Browning
and N. J. Donohoe; officials .of the
Britannia Mining and Smelting
Company in connection with the
Hood at Britannia Beach, on October 28th, when 36 lives were lost.
REMINISCENCES
The most popular man around our
town,
Is that live wire Freddy Brown,
He is the one that sells the booze,
And makes us all wear our old shoes,
And socks and shirt and hat and coat;
For he's the man that's got our goat.

ALICE   ARM   AND   ANYOX!   HERALD,   Alice Arm,   Saturday, December -31st., 1921
Continued from page 1.
Some people had their Christmas
dinner on Sunday, others on  Monday, and there are some who are
still celebrating Christmas.
The liquor store did a thriving
business previous to Christinas, and
we understand that the Hardware
Department was soon solf! out of
cork screws.
The celebrated order of the
'"Black Eagle" mot on Wednesday
night at the mine. Those fortunate
enough to be in the party report a
very wet evening.
Next Saturday the Elks are
holding a big New Year Dance in
their own hall. Dancing will commence at 8p.m. and the old year
will be danced out and the New
Year will be rung in. The
arrangements are in the hands of a
capable committee. Come and
finish off the old year in grand old
style.
Great excitement prevailed at
the wharf on Tuesday. Smoke
was seen issuing from the wharf
wharehouse and it was feared the
stock in the liquor store would
have to be moved, there were many
willing hands and throats ready to
do the moving, but it was not
necessary. The fire was soon subdued and all returned to normal
again.
