Government Wharf
at Alice Arm is
Completed
Will Greatly Facilitate the
Handling of Freight
The Alice Arm government
wharf is now practically completed
a little finishing has to be done,
and Mr. T. W. Muse, the contractor expects to have everything
finished by Monday next. The
wharf has taken a considerable
time to build on account of its
being necessary to blast out under
water for the footings for the two
outer rows of piles. This work
could only be done at low tide and
necessitated the use Of a diver.
Difficulty was also experienced
with ice in the bay. The wharf
which is 50ft.-by 100ft. is as good a
looking wharf as one may wish to
see/' A warehouse, 24ft. by 50ft.
has been erected and eight feet of
this has been built on the road,
thus giving more space on the
wharf. The space on the wharf
now available for teams, etc. is
$!§!)$$■** 7Qft. and giyes lots of .room
for teams to turn around. A 2-ton
derrick has been erected for handling heavy pieces of freight. Alice
Arm have now a wharf of their
own, with a road leading to it over
which a sleigh or a motor truok
can be run and the hand-cars and
scows for handling freight are a
thing of the past.
It is now up to the government
to build a float between the wharf;
and the town, so that the small
boats will also have a place to tie
up to, and unload freight and passengers. There is no doubt that if
we bestir ourselveB and point out
to the government the necessity of
having a float that they will be
only too pleased to build one.
Mr. Muse will repair the float at
Silver City, across the bay, before
leaving for Prince Jlupert, and from
there he will go to Skidegate, Q. C.
I. to do considerable repair work
on the wharf there.
Accident at Esperanza
Mine on Thursday
Mr. Jaok Murdook had the misfortune, to break his leg while
working at the Esperanza mine at
Alice Arm, on Thursday night.
He was working in the tunnel
when a bunch of rook slipped from
the hanging wall, pinning him to
the opposite side of the tunnel and
breaking his .leg below the knee.
He was packed down from the
mine to the main trail at the foot
of the hill and was conveyed from
there to the wharf by Mr. H.
Carney's dog team. He was rush-
to Anyox Hospital on the Awake
which was waiting for him.

credit to a watch maker or a gun
maker.
Under dietetics there were several hearty meals displayed, to look
at these one suddenly became
hungry, they were so inviting.
- The most extensive exhibit was
that of the Dressmaking, Millinery
and Needlework Department.

wearing apparel could be seen
there. AH the other classes' were
represented and the work was a
credit to the different departments
exhibiting it.

a good membership. Get on the
roll, it is not yet too late.

made by Anyox to equalize,  but
the first period ended with Alice
Arm 1, Anyox 0.
The second period was even more
strenuous than the first. Both
teams were playing the game with
every ounce of energy that was in
them and neither side held the
advantage. Alice Arm, whose
forwards were playing a dashing
game and shooting at every opportunity, again drew first blood when
Al. Falconer drove the puck from
the right wing and scored with a
shot which Waterman had no
chance of saving.
Anyox forwards were now renewing their efforts to score with
redoubled energy and they were
rewarded when Carlson scored
from a melee iu front of goal, pushing Bruggy who held the.puck into
the net. McGammon equalized the
score in a few minutes with a shot
from the left wing and Down put
his team in the lead with a lucky
shot. The score at the end of the
second period was Anyox 3, Alice
Arm 2.
The final session was brimful of
excitement and surprises throughout. The Alice Arm defence was
showing great form and held the
agile Anyox puck chasers in check,
foiling their attempts to score
again and again. Cameron's bulk
especially was a stumbling block
which Anyox found it hard to
negotiate. Alice Arm, as in the
two previous periods, were the
first to find the net when Ross
scored with a clean shot from the
right wing, evening up the score.
Oatman got possession of the puck
from the face-off. He made a
great solo rush to the Anyox goal
and scored with a straight shot
before anyone hardly realized what
had happened. Both teams were
still going strong. The Anyox
forwards were showing great
speed, and giving the Alice Arm
defense a lot of work to do. Their
efforts were rewarded when
McGammon scored with a shot
from the left, and Carlson found
the net with an easy shot which
put them one goal ahead. Alice
Arm strove to equalize, and were
giving Waterman some hot shots,
but they were unsuccessful and the
final score was Anyox 5, Alice
Arm 4.
Both teams deserve credit for the
clean, sportmanship way in which
the game was played. Alice Arm
team are improving and played a
much better game than they did
the previous week at Anyox.
Their defense was in A 1 form and
had the Anyox forwards guessing
throughout   the    game.       Their
forward line also showed up to
better advantage and their shooting qualities are superior to the
Anyox team. They gave Waterman a lot of work and Anyox are
to be congratulated on having such
a veteran between the sticks, A
little more combination on the part
of the forwards, however, would
strengthen the team considerably.
Bruggy in goal is improving fast.
He stopped a lot of hard shots, and
will, with a little more practice
develop into a first-class goalkeeper.
The Anyox forwards are a speedy
bunch and they keep a fast pace
throughout the game. They play
good combination, but their shooting could be improved. The
defense in improving and a few
more games will round out the
Wilson Bros, into two good stick
handlers. Waterman played his
usual consistent game in goal and
left nothing to chance. Mr. Floyd
Hatt was referee and fulfilled his
duties to the satisfaction of both
teams.
Anyox wish it to be mentioned
that they appreciate the hospitality
extended to them by the people of
Alice Arm, but we wish to say
that Alice Arm were merely recip-
orating for the good time they
received at Anyox the previous
week. These little courtisies ■ extended to the visiting teams help
a lot to establish a friendly spirit
between the two camps, and also
help to make a good clean game.
Sensational Hockey
Game at Alice Arm
Captains John Anderson and
Jock Morrison with their veteran
teams of puck chasers tangled
sticks for supremacy on Wednesday night at the Arena. Although
the ice on account of the warm
weather was rather heavy and
slow, the play at all stages of the
game was fast and furious and
effervescing with excitement. It
was expected that there would be
heavy oasuality list, but strange to
state not a drop of blood was spilt
and the elaborate preparations of
the First Aid Squad were not
required. Both sides lost heavily
in breath and weight, but gained
in experience and condition and
upon the occasion of a return
match should Set a whirlwind and
tempestuous paoe. Bruggy, who
is a speedy and experienced lacrosse
player, and who has just broken
into the hockey game recently,
evidently got the games mixed up
and played a beautiful position of
"Inside Home" for his team, scor
ing many of the goals from long
passes made by the goal keeper.
Had he been able to connect with
the puck every time he swung at
it it would have required an adding
machine to have kept track of the
tallies. Captain Morrison was the
only man who strictly followed the
rules of the game? thus setting his
team a good example.? ? Dumas
in goal played a wonderful game
and made  some  beautiM saves.
The Captains ragged one another
from start to finish and honors are
equally divided as to who won the
most falls during the bout. Feet,
sticks and steam filled the air
throughout the game, intermingled
with occasional whiffs of sulphuric
fumes which arose as shins and
wood connected. The score of 5-2
in favor of Anderson's aggregation
is no criterion of the other sides
play and when they come together
again no doubt the margin of goals
will be greatly lessened.
The line-up of the teams were
Morrison's Mules: goal, S.Dumas
left defense, A. Gustaffson; right
defense P. Williamson; centre, J,
Morrison; left wing, A. Beudin;
right wing, H. Butler.
Anderson's Antiques: goal, G.
Anderson; left defense, A. D. Yorke;
right defense, J. Anderson (cap.)

Those who will not profit by experience deserve
to suffer. Experience has taught thousands of
successful business men that a dollar hoarded
when it should be expended on advertising is
worse than a dollar thrown away. This is particularly true of the time when the inclination
to conserve is strongest.
