Memorable Night with
Dickens at Anyox
Excellent Entertainment Given by the Parents
Teachers Association
i    Seldom  has Anyox   been   so
(pleasantly entertained as when last
f Friday eveni ng, the ParenfcTeaeher
' Association staged before an appreciative audience, five scenes replete
with the quaint humor and pathos
. of Dickens.   The enthusiasm with
! whioh these sketches were received
show that our English writer can
| still revive the memory of books
that never grow old.
Those who took part—one and
all-r-merit that praise whioh is due
|( to a natural and clear-cut portrayal
of difficult characters.   In passing,
however, one would wish to note
and make some special mention of
the players  whose   acting   and
enunciation were outstanding and
I highly creditable features of the
evening.   Miss Ruth Gordon and
< Mr. E. Yard in exacting and major
parts,   exhibited  splendid' ability
and contributed considerable zest
I which was infectious to the whole
j entertainment. ''-,'
Interspersed   musical, nuiflbers
l added much to the rounding out of
the  evening's   enjoynieift.      The
j Anyox  orchestra,   eVer   generous
with its contributions, were in fine
fettle.    Two of its members, viz
Mr. W. Auckland   and "Mr.   J.
' O'Connor provided a real treat in
the.'form of cornet and violin solos,
which were exoellehtly rendered
and which called forth the encores
of the evening.
Explanatory prefaces to "the
scenes added much to their value
and interest anil credit to their
orginator, Miss Ruth Stewart, one
of the staff of the Anyox High
Sohool. Another, to whom some
of the evening's success was due, is
the Rev. J. Gjblon, who undertook
to read the prefaces above-mentioned and who also gave in finished
and concise style a delightful sketch
of the life of Dickens.
To Mrs; W. Hoffman, president
of the Parents-Teachers Association
and. her untiring asssisting committees, with Mrs. Geo. McColl,
Mrs. W. F. Eve and Mr. P. Barr,
who were responsible for the
direction, costuming and decorating
must be given praise without stint
for their able efforts which crowned
the success of the Dickens evening.
Since the performance on Friday,
many have expressed the hope that
the AhypxvParent-Teaoher Association will be encouraged by its
initial success to strife towards
similar projects in the near future.
We cannot have too many such

Miss J. Moffatt, whose first
appearance it was on the stage,
and who was the youngest member of the company, gave a
wonderful portrayal of the motherly sister in "Otar Mutual Friend ";
whioh was also an excellent exhibition of memory. She talked'
practically all the fifteen minutes
she was on the stage and never
faltered. <
Ed. Yard in the "Madman" was
■ ■-.' t$. v ■ ',-'■,
in the professional class.
All those who participated,
musicians, singers and aotors, were
thunderously applauded by a pack
ed hpuse. They all did well. The
costumes of the ladies were pretty,
and the men's costumes were true
to the period. ,
1 The success of the entertainment
was due to a great measure to the
following ladies and gentlemen:
Work Commenced on
Kitsault River
Will Letter) Danger of
Work commenced last Monday,
under the direotion of Mr. Joe
Wells, on the Kitsault River, aboye
the wing dam at Alice Arm. The
work consists of cleaning out the
river bed at a point about 800 feet
above the., dam and several big
stumps will be. removed from the
east bank of the fiver, so that the
river will .have a better chance to
hug the east bank instead - of
spreading towards the west side
and endangering the town at high
water periods. If it is possible to
keep the river on the east side, the
danger of flooding the town will
be greatly reduced. It is not yet
known whether the wing dam will
be strengthened this year or not.
Everyone, however, is hoping that
the government will be able to do
this very necessary work, and help
eliminate the possible loss of life
and property during the high
water in the fall of the year.
Logging Camps may
Operate at Alice Arm
Mr. J. E. Taylor, of Ocean Falls
paid a short visit to Alioe Arm at
the beginning of the week, to look
into the possibilities of operating
logging camps here during the
coming summer. While no defiuite
policy has yet been decided on, it is
very probable that logging operations will he commenced this
year. Alice Ann is, surrounded
with some of the finest timber on
the Pacific coast, the majority of
which is olose to tide water and
affords easy logging operations.
Alice Arm has, in its timber, an
asset of whioh any town might
well be proud. With the possibility of extensive logging operations
in the near future and a resumption of mining operations at the
Dolly Varden and Wolf mines, and
transportation assured on the
upper Kitsault, Alice Arm will be
one of the hubs of industry on the
the northern ooasfc   •

Weekly Meeting of the
Community League held
.March 1st.
At the weekly meeting of the
Anyox Community'League, held
on Wednesday, March 1st, it was
announced that a considerable
number of new books for the. library had been received and that a list
of the new books was on view at
the library.
It was decided that the League
make arrangements for the rental
of the Elk's Hall, for Badmbgton
players, who will be required to
pay monthly dues of $1.00, for the
privilege of playing. This will be
only for a period of one or two
months. The1 present policy of the
Council is; one, whereby eaoh
aotivity will be required to be (as
far as possible) self supporting.
Mr. Alex Roberts, chairman of the
Reoreation committee and Mrs. W.
F. Eve, are making arrangements
with the Badmington players.
The Council are to hold a special
meeting on Thursday, March 9th,
for the purpose of blocking out a
programme for the coming, season
ftnd also to formulate a" pdlicyf y "*-
It was announced that the Beaoh
dancing class No. 2 is progressing
very well, although the class is still
somewhat short of full strength,
and it is desirous that a few more
pupils join up. The opportunity
is one that does not offer very
often, viz to get instruction at the
low rate of $6100 for a course of
twelve lessons.
A letter was read from the
Stewart Citizens Association, in
reply to a letter from the A C. L.
re Steamship rates on this coast/
They hoped the A. C. L. would use
their influence to have the Alice
Arm & Anyox Herald co-operate
with the Portland Canal News (a
copy of which was enclosed) in
publishing each other's news dealing with the freight and passenger
rates, etc. and all other matters
which would be to the benefit of
the northern distriot.  *
Current opinion seems inclined
to favor the construction of a
gymnasium and swimming pool,
and it is hoped that it will be
accomplished during the coming
summer. The .Council will undoubtedly be able to do this if it
can get the united support of the
community as a whole. The Community League is trying to make
this a better town to work and live'
in. Be a sport! Join the Community League!!
No. one is worrying about the
future of Alice Arm with its vast
mineral treasure locked in the
ground; its timber wealth standing
on every hill and flat above the
ground, and the finest tract of
agricultural ground in the north
at our doors, all awaiting development. The future of Alioe Arm
spells Prosperity.

Extracts from Review
British Columbia Mining
Industry During 1921
Prospects for this Year
are Bright   :, V
In a review of the mining industry of British Columbia for 1921,
it is estimated by the Hon. Wm,
Sloain, Minister of Mines, that the
value of the mineral production for
1921 will approximate $25,700,608.
This is $9,762,476 less than in 1920
or a decline of 27 per cent.
These figures it is stated in the
collide of the annual review, ill
which Mr. Sloan discusses mining
conditions in British Columbia for
the past year, are most encouraging.
That there should be a reduction
was to be expected, he said. The
general" prediction was that it
would be much greater, for the
reason that the metal market for
months have been so weak that
many of the large smelters and
refineries on the American Continent found it impossible to keep
their plants in operation.
"Under the circumstances it is
considered remarkable that this
province should have been able to
maintain so well the general
average of production," said Mr.
"There are several outstanding
features in connection with the
1921 history of the industry. One
is the record of the Sullivan mine
at Kimberley, which is strikingly
reflected in the statistics relative
to the output of lead and zinc;
another the splendid performance
of the Hidden Creek Mine and the
Anyox Smelter, which is shown in
the volume of the copper production; and a third in the devolopment
in the Salmon River Valley, Portland Canal, of a gold and silver
producer of first importance. The
cotltributiou of this property to the
precious metals produced by British
Columbia for the first time gives
an 'indication of what may be
expected from mineral holdings
being opened up in this comparatively new northern mining section.
"During the most of last year,
and still in a marked degree,
w^rld conditions from the viewpoint of metalliferous mining have
beep unsatisfactory. Europe,
which consumes the greater proportion of the world's copper product,
has been unable to buy the metals
of America, and, as a result; the
largest producers of copper in the
world reduced their output to
about 20 per cent, of normal.
Much the same has applied to
lead and sine.
"These faots remembered,1 it is
the more remarkable and gratifying
that the 1921 production of lead is
estimated to be 3,668,782 lbs.
greater than in 1920, the figures
beiiTg; 1920,. 39,331,218 lb.; 1921,
43,000,000 lbs,; that zinc will drop
in volume only about 2,208,268 lb.
in comparison with the records of
the previous year; and that even in
copper, for whidh there was little
or no market, the decrease was not
greater than approximately 10,607,
Mr. Sloan declares that the manner in which this province has held
her own in respect of three of the
basic commercial metals; in the
face 'of almost unprecedented
adverse conditions, is a convincing
commentary on what can be done
when the trade winds are more
favorable, and furnishes an admirable illustration of what the future
holds'for the mining industry of
this country.
Reports of an optimistic character are given of the North-western
Mineral Survoy District, which
comprises the Mining Divisions of
Bella Coola, Skeena, Queen Charlotte, Naas River, Portland Canal,
Stikine, Laird, and Atlin. The
first three are on ihe coast and the
latter, lie behind what is known as
the "Alaska strip." Included in
the area are properties of the
Salmonx River, Bear River, Alice
Arm, and Anyox.
It is estimated that the increase
in tonnage mined will amount to
about 75,000 tons. The gold Output, exclusive of placer, which will
just about equal last year, will
show an increase of approximately
30,000 ozs. or. about 60 per cent,
greater than last year. This is due
to the gold production of the'
Premier Gold Mining Company.
The silver yield for'this year will
be about 125,000 oz. greater than
last year. This is due entirely to
the output) of the. Premier mine.'
The Premier's output of silver will
be over 1,000,000 oz. alone. The
copper production will exceed that
of last year by nearly 9,000,000 lb.,
an increase of about 33 per cent.,
and due altogether to the Granby
Co. at Anyox.
Dr. Harry S. Simmons, son of
the late Dr. H. S. Simmons, dentist',
of Anyox, has arrived in town and
will stay and practice for some
time au£ finish up the work started by his father.
Help the new Council of the A.
C. L. to make this year as successful in every way as last year. Help
make Anyox a still better place to
live in.
The Portland Canal News, of
Stewart, says—Albert B. Armstrong of. Stewart and Miss Agnes
Cullivan, formerly of Boston Mass.,
later of" Stewart, were united in
marriage by TJ. S. Commissioner
John Frame, of Hyder, Alaska, on
the afternoon of Saturday, February 4. The groom is well known
both in Stewart and Alice Arm,
having spent a number of years
in both places.' The bride is a
neiceof Harry Thoniey of Stewart,
and came out, to visit her uncle,
last fall, from Boston.
"Mine trails are the arteries
through which flows the life of any
mineralized or undeveloped area."

Owing to the fact that the
entire stall of the Herald has been
down with the grippe, this paper
has not been published for the
past two weeks. We regret very:
much that it was impossible to;
publish the paper, as many important things have happened in that
time. While we are not yet 100
per cent, efficient, we are publishing the Herald this week, and we
hope that next week everything
will be back to normal.
