Several new buildings have lately

Vilson, and he also contemplates
rectiug another building on his

St. Patrick's Day
A Short History of Ireland's
■fl   Patron Saint
Meeting of Mice Arm
Tennis Club
A special meeting of the Alice
Arm   Tennis Club was held   on
..;Wedhesda~y;—at the Anglican
Church, to receive the report of the
committee appointed at the  last
' meeting in regard to raising sufficient money to board^ the , tennis
(' court.     President' A. ' D   Yorke
I presided. '
The   committee -.reported   that
sufficient money had been promised
. to make it possible to lay boards
at the court. The 'estimated oost of
all material was $275.00- and the
labor would be voluntary.
It was then decided   to   make
arrangements   with* Mr. Kiel   to
supply lumber, and to commence
work as soon as possible.
The annual general meeting and
. eleotion of officers will he ' held on
the first Wednesday in April.
From the beginning of history,
nations glory in having given birth
to great men-patriots, saints, scholars, poets, warriors, men of renown,
men famous for sanctity, arts or
arms. The .birthplace of Homer,
the greatest of all poets, is quite
uncertain. So it is with St. Partick.
The birthplace of this great apostle
of the Irish Nation is a matter of
dispute, but, according to the most
learned historians the great apostle
of Ireland was born at, Bennayen
Tiherniac in Gaul, France, in 377,
A. D. St. Patrick's mother was
Concessa, a niece of St. Martin of
Tours, and his father was Calpurn,
a Roman Governor, who "came to
Britain in the service of the Imper
ial Empire.  . •
At the age of 16, Sfe Patrick was
f carried captive to Ireland by the
famous King Niall of nine hostages.
Here he spent six-years of captivity
among the hills of Antrim. The
knowledge he thus acquh'ed of the
Irish and their language led fope
Celestine to s'e'nd St. -Patrick later
to evangelize the Irish .nation.
3J,ie story ,of this apostle has no
equal in the pages of history. He
converted the whole nation nOt only
to Christianity but to such an exalted stage of saiietity that the Irish
nation got and has retained ever
since the proud and unique appellation of the "island of Saints and
Sohqlars."

men called the "Henpecks" and
"Chicken Chasers" although five
players (compose a team, both
sides availed the privilege of substituting. Each team must have

out of puff then Archie Morton took
up the task. The game lasted
about two hours during which

With the price o{ copper now
over 16. cents a pound and , silver
fluctuating around 66 cents per
ounce, the future qf the northern
mining camps is bright indeed.
The mining camp of $tewart which
was dead for ten long years, and
turned down cold by every mining
engineer in the country is fast coming to her own. The same mining
men who left the camp years ago,
are now breaking their necks to1
secure ground, before it is all taken
up. During the dull days one
property which is now the Premier1
kept working, and eventually proved
to the world that unlimited mineral
wealth was in the ground, and that
all that was required was good hard
work and optimism. TH?! same
faint hearts who deserted the
country when the "wise birds" condemned it, are now among the
biggest boosters, and feverishly
grabbing every property in sight.
Alice'Arm is in exactly the same
position, when the Dolly Varden
closed down through mis-management, mining engineers vanished as
though a plague had hit the country.'
As soon, as this property starts to
ship out high grade ore, the same
mining engineers will be back, ready
to take hold of any property that
may make a mine. The great
fault of nearly all mining engineers
is^hat they are afraid to take a
chance in a new country or in a
district that is quiet, but as soon as
a camp is booming, the mining
engineer, like the rest becomes inoculated with the wave of optimism that pervades, and is ready to
recommend a property that at other
times he would very probably
condemn.
Vancouver always boasted that
the Britannia mine was the largest
copper mine in the.British Empire,
although it'has never yet produced
as much copper in one. year as the
Granby Co's Hidden Creek hiine.
Press dispatches from Vancouver
now state that the Britannia is the
largest topper, mine in the world.
The next thing we shall hear is
that Vancouyer is the largest city
in/the. world. Talk is cheap, but
"it does'nt produce the goods.
, 'You can't sell that man an encyclopedia."
"Why not."
"He knows it all."
'"Well he'll enjoy going over it
for errors."

Naas Valley Notes
Mr. H. Derby has returned to
Whitehorse, Y.T. where he will
spend the summer. He intends to
return to Aiyansh early next fall,
spending the early part' of the
winter here. He will then proceed
to Prince Rupert where he will
build a river boat to operate 0,11 the
Naas the following summer. The
boat will be a tunnel boat,: about
forty feet in length, and will have
a 57-H.P. two-speed engine.
A serious accident occurred on
Monday to a party of Indians who
were on their way down river, to
the ooligan fishing at Fisher Bay,
in which Luke 'Grandison and
grandchild were drowned. The
party were making the trip 'in a
small overloaded canoe, which capr
sized. The, bodies were recovered
and buried at Aiyansh on Wednesday. ,
A party of surveyors are at the
Cedar Biver coal fields engaged in
obtaining samples of coal It is
reported that extensive drilling
will be done this summer by
English and Vancouver capital.
Everyone is anxiously looking
forward to the completion of the
nejc river boat, as it is expected
that this will practically overcome
our river' transportation difficulties.
It is estimated that the,'total
value of property destroyed by fire,
in Canada during 1922 will reach
no less than a sum of $44,00Q,000,
as compared with $40,000,0(1) in
1921, and $27,000,000 in ,1920.
Fire premiums written in 1922
amounted to $47,450,860 and the

The Ore Did'nt Go Up
Jim Butler, the discoverer of the
■ celebrated Tonopah silver mine in
' Nevada,1 died last January at the
age of 67. The Engineering Mining & Journal-Press of New York,
' publishes a lengthy -article Jon the
.early history of the property,' in
• which is the following. After
N assays of rook from the olaims had
been taken:
"Their  richness   was  at   once
apparent, and "experts" oame to
inspeot—perohance to buy.    One
, siioh visited Butler when he was
■ five feet deep in a location hole.
Jim squinted up at the "expert"
; standing against the glaring desert
, sky. "Well, what d'ye, think of
her,"4 asked he. '"She won't go
down," ansvvered the faint-hearted
emissary of capital. Jim spat oh
his hands and raised his pick for
another blow. ''Welly" quoth he
philosophically, "I'm damned sure
'she won't go upl" V

whioh played better than ever.
Eaoh number on the programme
was highly appreciated by the
audienob, the pld Scotch songs
drawing thunderous applause, to
which the band ' responded with
enoores, and when the "Bonnets o'
Bonnie Dundee" Was played, the
crowd began to show symptoms of
a; large appetite for more. The
songs of Ireland and the final
marolishad to be repeated.
, Bandmaster J. Varnes\and his
colleagues well deserve the appreciation shoWn by the audience on
Sunday, for Aiiyox'may be justly
proud of the band.

masquerade and others of a beggar's
ball. The matter was left over, for
future decision.
The matter of meeting nights
being held not oftener than two
nights in winter and one during
the months of May, June,'July,
August and September was taken
up and discussed at some length.
It was decided that when the meeting was called to adopt the amended Constitution that this matter be
dealt with. Mr. McAllister, who
was' present, was asked by the
chajr when the newly drafted and
amended Constitution would be
ready. Mr. McAllister replied
that good progress was being
made.

he: had received from ,a number of
League members, to the effect that
the meeting night of the League
be changed from Wednesday
to Fr.idav, so as topermit of a wider
choice of eligibles for the Council.
This suggested change caused some
discussion, and a division was had
oil a motion of Mr. Townshend
which was seconded by Mr. Jones,
' to rthange the meeting night from
Wednesday to Friday. The motion was carried by a majority of
one, the chair not voting.

located the famous Premier mine,

on the A\merican continent, although the attention of prospective
Old Country investors is nqt confined to that region, ,i '
The minister of mines js sending
(o the British Columbia House in
London, a collection of ores from
the Portland Canal district, for
display purposes., The collection
of ores 'from Alice Arm for the
British Columbia House has not
yet been shipped to AMotoria and if

samples left town.
