Alice Arm  Christmas
Tree & Entertainment
Huge Success
A oapaoity house; a crowd of
happy children; lots to eat and
drink; a benevolent Santa Claus,
and a present laden Christmas tree
marked one of the most successful
Christmas Tree entertainments
given to the children of Alice Arm.
The children of Alice Arm have
had many pleasant Christinas entertainments to remind them of
their childhood in the north, but
not one former event has given the
ohildren more pleasure or has been
handled by the lady organizers
more efficiently.
The children were on hand earl j'
with expectant faces over which
was spread a smile that lasted
throughout the evening.
Harry Fowler was Chairman,
a position he filled in his usual
efficient manner.
The evening's ontertaintnent
oommenced with a programme
given by the sohool children. Each
one executed their part efficiently
and gracefully, showing thorough
training.' The children were trained
by Mrs. J. Graham iu the singing
and the balance was under the
tutelage of E. DeGruchy, of the
sohool. Great credit is due to these
two ardent workers for the splendid efficiency displayed.
Following is the programme:
1. Recitation, "Forgive and
Forget our Faults tonight." Gordon Anderson.
2. Song, "Altogether" Girls
Chorus.
3. Recitation, "When Pabegins
to Shave." Gordon Anderson.
4. Recitation, "A. Christmas

Business Transacted at
Skating Rink Meeting
A general meeting of those interested in the Alice Arm Skating
Rink was held in T. W. Falconer's
store on Saturday evening.
Owing to,the absence of president T. W. Falconer, H. Fowler
was elected chairman.
Mr. Fowler stated that the early
records of the construction and operation of the rink were not at
present available, butcould probably
be recovered at the Royal Bank in
Prince Rupert, where they were
evidently transfered when the local
branch closed down.
Election of officers was the ftrst
"business undertaken. T. W. Falconer was elected president; Gus
Anderson, vice-president; H. Fowler, seo-treas aud Al. Falconer and
J. Strombeek were elected, as an
executive committee to act in conjunction with the other offices.
The price of season tickets was
the next business brought up. H.
F. Kergin, who opened the discussion was of the opinion that a
surplus should be accumulated each
year to serve as a sinking'fund.
As a new rink would be necessary
before many more years had passed
He suggested that everyone
using the rink have a ticket.
Considerable discussion followed
iu regard to the price of tickets,
aud finally a scale was decided on
that would meet with the approval
of all those using the rink.
The price of a season ticket will
be: Single men, $5.00; married
man and wife $5.00; lady $2.00;
children 50 cents.
It was the general opinion that
the above prices were the lowest
that could be charged, when it
was taken into consideration that
unlooked for expenses are always
cropping up, and that the rink is
available 24 hours each day for
anyone who oares to use it.
Alice Arm people will enjoy this
year the cheapest skating in Canada conducted under a roof, and it
is hoped that the rink will be well
patronized by both women and
men, who desire real healthy and
invigorating recreation.

Tomorrow brings us round
again to the big annual festival of
the christian world. When we
celebrate with rejoicing the birth
of out christian religion, a religion
which was founded on the solid
foundation of brotherly love, and
"peace on earth, goodwill to men."
It is fitting that we should celebrate
such an important event in the
history of the world, for at the
birth of Christ an era of love and
charity commenced, after centuries
of hatred and oppression had
reigned supreme. While progress
was at first slow, the goal is rapidlv
being approached and the different
peoples of the world realize th
hatred and oppression of eac
other is detrimental to all. It
our happy lot to be living in
prosperous district of the most
prosperous country in the world,
and we have reason to give thanks
for manifold blessings when we
celebrate tomorrow. Anyox and
Alice Arm are devoid of any
abject poverty, as exists in the
large centres of population. It is
not necessary to create charitable
organizations for providing of
Christmas dinners. Everyone will
have ample to eat and drink and
no one will go hungry. We wish
our readers the most happiest
Christmas they have ever spent,
with no unpleasant aftermath.
The legislature at its next session
should repeal that very unfair
clause in the Mineral Act known
as the two per cent, tax on the
gross output of the mines. With
the low price of metals at present
prevailing this is imperative if the
industry is to continue. It is now
thirty years since this unjust enactment passed tlie legislature. In all
that time the mining industry has
been the goat in an unjust enactment that would not be tolerated
in any other industry.—The Slocan
Record.
It is;; rather unfortunate that
narrow-minded people introduce
questions into politics that belong
to home and church training. A
man's religion or his wife's religion
should not besmirched by politicians. We Canadians, irrespective
of the shrine at which we worship
on the-Sabbath, should join heartily in an endeavor to make our
country a pleasant and profitable
home for all, who obey onr laws,
Copper Mountain Will
Operate Under Name
of Granby
A change, which means little
more than a change in the name
under which operations at Allenby

iug & Power Company, ceased to
exist and operation commenced
under the name of the parent company.
There will be no change in the
personnel of the staff or in the pol
icy followed. The following notice
of the winding up of the Allenby

Copper Buyers   Show
Activity
Out of a clear sky last Friday
morning, soon after 9 o'clock, copper buyers, who had been hibernating for several weeks, entered
the market in a body, and the total
sales for the next fourbusiness days
probably set a record for* recent
years. In the week ending to-day
more copper has been sold than for
the preceding six week put together
and the price has advanced. The
other metal did not share in this
business, however both lead and
zino being remarkably quiet, even
more so than last week, and at
slightly declining prices. The
demand for spot tin is also somewhat less. Silver is quiet and
substantially unchanged.
Coast Smelter Still Being
Speaking before the foreign
bureau of the Victoria Board of
Trade, C. P. Browning, general
manager of the Britannia Mining
Company, with mine at Britannia
Beach, Howe Sound, said he would
be glad to see a smelter on the
coast, but conditions would have
to be closely examined before this
was done. His company had not
sufficient production at present to
keep a smelter going.
It might be mentioned that large
smelter interests, apart from those
reopening the smelter at Ladysmith, have had the matter under
consideration for some time. Ore
production ou the coast is increasing, and when this is enough to
keep a smelter going it is understood that one will be constructed
A department of mines and minerals has been organized in connection with the Seattle Chamber of
Commerce.
Premier To Pay Another Big
Dividend in January
Word was received iu Vancouver
from the head office of the Premier
Gold Mining Company at New
York that at a meeting of directors
there the regular quarterly dividend of eight cents on the shares
had been declared, payable on January 4 as of record December 13.
This is the samequarterly dividend
that has now been disbursed for
the past few years, representing
$400,000 a quarter. Total dividends paid by this company are
now in excess of the $10,000,000
mark.
R. L. Clothier has closed down
the Beaver mine, Beaverdell district
and has gone to the Slocan, where
he has an option on a claim. He
expects the company will resume
work on the Beaver after the first of
the year.
In the fiscal year ended June 30th
last, the Seattle assay office purchased $7,456,910 gold.
Hon. Wm.  Sloan Concedes
20 Per Cent. To Gen. McRae
Through his solicitors, Hon.
William Sloan, according to the
Vancouver Province, has annouced
that he will forego twenty per cent
of the $50,000 damages awarded
him in the McRae libel suit. The
minister's lawyers, the newspaper
says, have been authorized to settle
the case for him and no doubts in
regard to settlement are now anticipated, there having been only a
matter of $2,000 in dispute. A
compromise on this sum.is looked
for.

THE Province of Ontario has, by the vote of its people, shaken itself free from the
shackles of a'prohibitory law; it joins the provinces of Canada, STRETCHING
FROM SEA TO SEA that have found Prohibition a failure arid have rejected it.
The people of British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario and Quebec .
have seen for themselyes through actual experience the falseness and dishonesty of
Prohibition; they have seen the folly of attempting to build TEMPERANCE on a foundation of BIGOTRY and INTOLERANCE.

At the conclusion of the pro-
ramme, Santa Claus entered the
room, and the bulky benevolent old
whiskered gentleman, was the
centre of attraction for the pop
eyed younsters. He distributed
his gifts liberally, not one child being missed. In addition to the
presents distributed each child received a bag of candy, nuts, oranges, apples and a balloon aud the
screams of delight from the children as they opened their parcels,
was a sight to gladden any eye.
Refreshments for both adults and
children followed the visit of Santa
Claus. There was an abundance
of good things to eat, washed down
with hot coffee.
A dance for the adults closed the
evening's enjoyment. It was an
evening of delight for the juveniles,
and the organizers were well repaid for their efforts in the happy
faces of the children.
For the splendid success attained, oredit is due to Mrs. J. Wheat-
ley. It was due to her efforts
that the Christinas Tree was made
possible this year. As an organizer
and go-getter she is without a peer
as the results attained testify. She
was assisted by Mrs. E. Moss, Mrs.
G. W. Bruggy, Mrs. G. Anderson,
Mrs. L. O'Connor. Other ladies
also helped in many ways, and to
these and the gentlemen who gave
them assistance, sincere thanks are
tendered, for without support, however, enthusiastic the organizers
might be, success could not be
realized.

Somehow when a man gets into
a crowd he thinks that he is the
only one in a hurry.
The pleasure a woman gets out
of a good cry has nothing in com
nion with her sense of humor.
When it comes to scouring the
earth a detective often can give a
sorubwoman-a few pointers.
A woman seldom listens to a
man's explanation, yet it makes
her angry if he refuses to offer one.
Round after round is the way the
pugilist ascends the ladder of fame,
It is not difficult for a young man
to earn a good living if he has a
rich dad.
