PRINCE RUPERT; the terminus of tbe Canadian National Railways
in Northern British Columbia, has come to the fore of recent years
in Northern British Columbia, has eome to the fore Of recent years
as one of tbe premier fish-producing areas of the Dominion of
Canada. Prince Rupert halibut is known all over the American continent, and the industry hast reached large proportions because of the
distribution service placed at the disposal of. the fishermen at that port
by the. Canadian National Railways.
The one essential in the fishing, industry it the speedy marketing
ofthe fish after they are caught. By means of a rapid express service
over the Canadian National, halibut and other fish from Prince Rupert
are laid down in Winnipeg. Montreal, Toronto and other Canadian and
America cities very quickly after they are landed from the fishing
boats in Prince Rupert harbor. .
Halibut fishery is the chief sea industry of Prince Rupert, and during 1922, 25,276,300 lbs. of halibut Were landed at that port. In addition, 83,225,300 lbs. of salmon, were caught and large quantities of
herring, cod, fiat fish and crabs. The cod land; herring fisheries, which
have scarcely been touched as yet, hold a gnat future. ,.
The photograph shows a few of the hundreds of boats engaged in
the halibut fisheries out of the port of Prinoe Rupert
Now Ready for Frost
The Alice Arm Skating Rink is
now all ready for operations, with
the exception of some ookj weather.
A number of enthusiasts were
busily engaged in putting the rink
into shape at the beginning of the
week. The surface which holds the
ice has been levelled off. New
wire guards has been placed on the
south end. for the protection of
spectators, and the big logs carrying the roof has been peeled from
all bark. The peeling of the logs
was undertaken by Mr. A. D. Hal-
let, who. willingly gave considerable time to this important work.
It was found when the bark was
removed that the logs were commencing to deoay, and it is hoped
that this deterioation has been
remedied. <<•   '
The local fans are anxiously
awaiting the advent of some real
oold weather, so that the rink can
put in operation. '
Alice Arm will operate a hookey
team during the winter and look
for several good games with Any

Ladies Aid of Anglican
Church Hold Very Successful Bazaar
One of the most successful
Bazaars in the history of the; Christ
Church was recently held in tbe
[Elks Hall, under the auspices of the
Ladies Aid, Mrs/W. F. JEve,
assisted by a band of willing workers spared neither time nor effort to
break all previous records and make
;it the best ever. Valuable help
was given by the "Brother .Bills,"
who with their usual generosity
placed their commodious hall at the
disposal of the ladies, making it
possible for them to break away
from the usual cut and dried Sale
|_f Work. What one likes about
these ''BrotherBills"'is'-not only
what they do, but how they do it.
The Upper Hall was occupied by
the various stalls aud competitions
during the afternoon, and in 'the
eveuing a dance was held from 9
p.m. to 12.
The spaoious Dining Hall downstairs was turned into a tea room
and ice cream parlor; and was well
patronized during the afternoon
and evening.
Considerable interest was taken
in the competitions, especially the,
novel one of the butterflies and
trick drawing, sponsored by Mrs,
Hodson, the winners of which,were
Masters G. Johnson, and S. M.
MoLachlan* and Mrs. J. Macintyre. ■;

and Messrs. C. Allan and Sherman.
The gentlemen most^ gallantlj
withdrawing in favor of Miss
Owens who secured the coveted
cushion. >

was Mrs. L. H. Wenestrom.
To our way of thinking, Mr. E.
Simpson was, the most fortunate
man of the evening. He succeeded
in carrying off the artistically dee-
orated Christmas Cake, presented
by Mr. Clayton, It was one of
the prettiest cakes we have seen
for a long time arid acclaims Mr.
Clayton a past-master in the confectioners art.

Interesting Address on
Mooseheart, at Anyox
The Catholic Hall was1 well
filled on Monday last, in spite of
the severe weather conditions,
when D. D. S. D. Wallstedt paid
an official visit to Anyox Lodge
No. 1412, and its auxiliary, the
Ladies Chapter. No; 757. During
the address, which lasted nearly
two hours, Mr. Wallstedt outlined
the growth of the M008e Order and
described Mooseheart; in detail. It
was an address both interesting
and instructive, and the speaker
had a most attentive audience.
He complimented1 the Local Lodge
on its rapid growth, and its fine,
body pf officers.

Bathing In the Bay
v    Becoming Popular
The cool waters of the Alice Arm
inlet, are certainly proving a
faoination for a number of people.
This week it was Mr, Alex Booner
who took/a high dive. Mr. Booner
recently arrived from PrinceRupert
to look over some mineral claims in
which he is interested, On Tuesday evening he was in a row boat
near the Dolly Varden wharf when
the boat capsized and much against
his will he took a plunge into the
icy water*   \
Alex says he went so deep that he
counted four mud sharks on the
bottom, who gave him the cold eye.
After what seemed to be several
years he came to the surface, succeeded, in righting his boat and

All the charms of beautiful Venice
were available to the citizens of

tides were on Thursday and Friday
but today is scheduled to be higher
and not a few of the citizens are
wondering whether their floors will
be washed with the Pacific Ocean.
The generol opinion among housewives seems to be that they would
prefer to do the washing themselves
when the time arrives for the necessary task.

It's In The Air.
This weather is hard on chronic
grouches. Oh no, not the (act of
the snow, or slush. It's the time
of the year, you know—the short
days and the long nights. It's the
mysterious sly whispers, the conversations that stop so abruptly
when certain young persons
appear. It's the laughter we hear
now, more than ever, on the
streets, at work, arid at home,
It's the wistful ldok kids have, the
unsuccessful attempts they make to
read the countenance of their
parents. What scowling old
grump can escape it.? You may
have the rheumatism, the price of
copper may be low, logging camps
may close down, but somehow
about this time of the year you
cannot help being happy. The
entire Dominion becomes infected
with this curious seasonal malady.
And it is just as prevalent throughout the entire Christain world.
For a fellow to escape it, he
would have to go away up in the
mountains, dig his grave and then
lie in it. And then the chances
are someone would come along
and wish him the compliments of
the season. So it's no use, frown-
ers, cross-patches and mean folk.
You've just got to smile from now
until Christmas. It's, in the air.
Merry Christmas! Say it with
joy, Maybe a little of the gladness will stick to your soul tnrough
the year.

Girls in Industrial School
Do Useful Work
Do your Christmas shopping
early. That last minute Christmas
Eve /rush is hard on your nerves,
and harder still on the nerves of
the storekeepers and clerks. Shop
early and shop in comfort.
The person who has regular
employment usually has no time to
get into mischief.
The alarm clock is a failure
unless it is backed up by considerable human resolutions.
Victoria, December 3rd.—The
interim report of the Girl's Iudnst"
rial School, tabled in the Legislature by Hon. A. M. Manson,
Attorney-General., shows that girls
who have had every opportunity to
go wrong and little encouragement
towards good citizenship may,
under sympathetic yet firm treatment, get away from their old
associations and become useful
members of their community.
The girls are trained in sewing
baking, fruit preserving, cooking
and general house work as well as
gardening, poultry raising and
dairying, During six months end^
ing September 30th. they put up
l.'tons of fruit; baked 3,597 loaves
of bread; washed and ironed 2.6000
pieces; made 562 articles of clothing
and repaired 3,936 articles.
Several girls are being given a
commercial training and one student of this class is alreadv occupying a position of trust. »
Victoria, December 3rd.—To a
-delegation from the B. C. Hospital
Association, asking for increased
grants to hospitals, Hon. J. D.
MaoLean, Provincial Secretary,
pointed out the other day that
British Columbia is more generous
in hospital administration than the
governments of the prairie provinces^1,
Dr. MoLean stated that .British
Columbia grants a total of eighty-
four cents per day per parent
towards hospital maintenance, as
compared with fifty cents by the
prairie provinces, and thirty and'
thirty-five cents granted by eastern
proviuoes, while British Columbia
is the only province aiding in the
emotion'of hospitals.
Meals Served at All Hours
GUS.   ANDERSON,   Proprietor
Victoria,—-Those that imagine
that British Columbia is going to
the dogs should take time to study
this province's income per annum
from all sources. According to an
estimate recently published by the
Dominion Bureau of statistics,
British Columbia's total income for
the year ending March 31, 1922
$229,138,933, or an average of $437
for every man, woman and child in
the province. From a further
study of statistics it will therefore
be gathered that British Columbia
ranks fifth in the list behind Ontario, Quebec, Saskatchewan and
Alberta, and ahead of, Manitoba,
Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and
Prince Edward Island.

Smelting Conditions at
Anyox and Why a Concentrating Plant is
Continued from last week
Extracts from,a paper read by
Mr. L, R. Clapp, at the Trail
meeting of the Canadian Institute
of Mining & Metallurgy.
Large Ore Output
"Last year we treated 876,000 tons
or ore containing 34,500,000 pounds
of popper, and producing 29,280,000
pounds of blister."
Flue Dust Saved.
We produce about one hundred
tons a day of flue dust which we
oatbh in one of the ordinary old
fashioned rectangular flue chambers
with the usual hopper bottom's
and we. are sintering this on a
standard Dwight-Lloyd machine,
mixed with 10 to 15 per oent. of
granulated oonverter s}a'g, to act as*
a porous binder. We have a considerable loss'of flue-dust through
the stack, and have considered
various methods of recovering it.
The installation of a Cottrell is not
justified with our low grade material, and •until, we get into the smelt-,,

Smelting Difficulties
- "Anybx was originally opened on
the metallurgical hypothesis that
there1 wereV approximately equal
quantities of the heavy pyrite, aud
the greenstone, ore, bodies, and that
these were supplements of 'each
other„So thatwhen .mixed, with the
proper quantity of cqke anS a little
limestone, they would smelt ecoii-'
qmicalin the proportions in whioh
they were found. Unfortunately
this did uot prove to be the case in
the actual;practice,,; Much of the
.silica in botlrores was found to be
already combined with the alkalies,
the alkaline earths, and alumina
and was hot, available in the furnace for the purpose of slagging
the iron. v -Further' the unavoidable
inclusion of dyke material and the
gradual disappearance of the free
silica in the greenstone ore, as the
mine grew deeper, made matters
worse until it was \not possible to
get even a fajr pyritio effect, and it
became necessary to use considerable lime stone and coke aud even
barren,quartz.to keep the furnaces
in operation. This made smelting
operations expensive and it was
not until the proportion of the
greenstone orebodies was cut down
and replaced by some of the low
grade silicious envelope ofthe pyritio
orebodies, that any cheap copper
began to be made, This however
introduced the complication that
the heavy pyrite orebodies were
being used up very much faster
than the greenstone ore bodies, and
would soon be exhausted,* leaving
untreated several million tons of
greenstone ores whioh were by.
themselves economical unsmelt-
ableV    :"-
Greenstone Ores will be Treated
in Concentrator
"Weafe howiereotingthe first
1,000 ton unit of our concentrating
mill,''aiid' it will be in "operation
soon after the first of the year: In
it we will treat our excess greenstone ore and certain portions of
the silicious material surrounding
our ore b6dies.   We will also try
out the preferential flotation of our
heavy sulphides with a view to
perhaps treating at least the fine
material which gives us considerable trouble in the blast furnaces,
As need arises the mill oapacity can
be increased to 2,000 or 3,000 tons."
\ i '-. '..■S'-**
Methods Are Changing
"For nearly twenty-five years
the Granby Company has been
smelting its bwh'' Copper ores,- and
has had an honorable metallurgical
history. From the days of Phoenix
and Grand Fork*?, where it was' able
to make a profit on the direct
.smelting, of a 1 per pent, ore, to the
present Anyox where it is operating
the largest pyritio smelter in the
world, Granby has been in the
mining camp slang, a company of
gas-eaters. But times are changing;
flotation and. wet methods generally
are gradually orowdhig in on the
held of the dry metallurgy. We
have taken our first step in , that,
direction. We are becoming as it
were amphibious. ,, Who Pan tell
but that in ten years more we in'ay

Startling Revelations at
Drug Enquiry
Vancouver, December 3rd.—Continued astounding revelations of the
complicity of Royal Canadian
Mounted police officers with underworld dope peddlers and addicts,
are ooming to light as the result of
the enquiry into the1 charges made
by Attorney-General Mansoil
Among the latest witnesses are
two young women who have been
rescued through the agency of Mrs,
James O'Brien ofthe An ti- Narcotic
Drug League. One of these testified
that she had, been induced to try
the drug habit and introduced to
Chinese drug peddlers by Con
stable "Doc" Smith when a girl of
fifteen. One Chinees peddler, Lee
Shon, who committed suicide
recently when arrested on a dope
charge, refused at first to sell drugs
to so young a girl,, she testified, so
the constable took her to the no-tor
ious J. J. Wing. The defence as.j
outlined by the cross examination
of J. B. Pattullo, EC. is that ithe
officer was using the girls for the
purpose of getting evidenceagainst
the Chinese.

yours may be among the unlucky
ones. So we hope you will get
them into the mail as early as
