Alice Arm Meeting Has
Endorsed Syndicate's
A special meeting of the Alice
Arm branch of the British Colum
bia Chamber of Mines was held in
the School House on Saturday
evening last. President 0. Evindson conducted the meeting, and E.
Moss acted as secretary.
Tlie meeting was called for the
purpose of hearing Mr. B. C. Marsh
representative of the Alice Arm
Power and Mining Syndicate, who
propose to install water, power and
light systems for the town of Alice
Arm, and to accept or reject his
Previous to opening the meeting
the Chairman stated that it was
necessary to decide if it should be
a public meeting or under the
auspices of the local branch of the
Chamber of Mines. It was unanimously decided to adopt the latter
Mr. Marsh was called upon by
the Chairman to state his case in
connection with the proposal to
supply Alice Arm with water,
light and power. This he did iu a
lucid manner, and replied to many
questions that were asked him by
those present.
In the course of his remarks, he
stated that he understood before
coming here that the people of
Alice Arm were in favor of the installation of water, power and
light systems If such was the
case he assured his hearers that
the newly formed Alice Arm Power
& Mining Syndicate were ready to
do so. Work would start as soon
as surveys were made in spring.
Regarding rates, he suggested
that a Board of Arbitration be
formed comprising one man
appointed by the syndicate, and
one by the people of Alipe Arm.
If an agreement could not be
reached that a third person be
appointed by the government.
He was satisfied that ample
water would be available for all
purposes, but it was necessary that
the syndicate have a guarantee of
the amount of water and power
to' be used before installing an
expensive plant. It was also hoped
to supply power to mining companies economically within a
radius of nine miles.
Mr. Marsh stated that the people
of Alice Arm would be given the
opportunity of subscribing $1500
to be sold in units of $50
General discussion followed the
speaker's remarks, and a motion
was made by Mr. Harry Smith,
seconded by Mr. E. Moss: that
"this meeting endorse the proposal
of the Alice Arm Power & Mining
Syndicate that they install a
water system and a power and
light system for the use of the residents of the town of Alioe Arm
also that the rates for water, power
and light be left to a Board of Arbitration consisting of one representative appointed by the syndioate, and one appointed by the
people of Alice Arm. If an agreement oan not be reached a third
person to be appointed by the
government." Carried unanimously.
A further motion that received
the unanimous support of the meeting, was as follows: "that the gov
eminent be asked to give the Alice
Arm Power and Mining Syndicate
all assistance possible". The motion was made by Mr. H. Fowler,
and seconded by Mr. M. Petersen.

The second game was an exhibition affair between the Mechanics
of the senior league and the High
School, who are leaders in the Intermediate division. It looked at the
start like a runaway for the Seniors,

tie with the losers-for leadership
of the first half of the schedule.

winners with 13. Asimus was best
for the losers with 9 to his credit.

crowded with all the youngsters in
town, waiting patiently for a
glimpse of Santa in person, and

as large as life and was one of the
first passengers to alight. He
retired immediately to the store
where each youngster was presented
with candy, etc. from the Christmas
tree there. Santa was supposed to
go to the Community League Christmas Tree at the gym. but had to
leave again on the boat for the south

Alice  Arm   Christmas
Tree Enjoyed by
With an elaborately   decorated
hall—that evinced exclamations of
surprise—a present-laden   Christmas Tree; a large audience and a
happy throng of children, the annual community  Christmas Tree
and Entertainment given  to the
children of Alice Arm and held on
Tuesday evening was easily one of
the best on  record.   One of the
most striking features of the evening was the splendid  decorating
system and the elaborate scenery
ofthe stage,   all   of   which   was
symbolic of Christmas and Santa
Chins.   One hundred and twenty
bells were   suspended   from    the
veiling and these were only a small
portion of the riot of color.
Another feature of tlie evening
was the splendid rendering by the
children of their several parts in
the entertainment, which was
carried out with promptness and
The evening's merriment commenced with an entertainment
given by the children. Everyone
of the little artistes displayed remarkable talent. Rounds of applause followed each number, and
great credit is due to their instructors Mr. Everett Greenaway and
Mrs. J. Graham.
Following the entertainment.
Santa Claus paid the children a
visit, and everyone received a
present from him.
Refreshments were then served
to the children and later the adults.
Each child was presented with
nuts, candies, apples and oranges,
and they all voted Santa Claus to
be a real good friend.
The chief honors for the splendid
success attained is due Mr. E.
Greenaway. He it was who
taught the children their parts in
the entertainment. He was also
responsible for the artistic decorations, and also assisted in many
other ways.
To Mrs. J. Trinder and Mrs. 0.
Evindson, who formed the Finance
Committee, thanks are also due;
also Mrs. J. Graham who accompanied each number on the programme on the piano.

If human nature is the combination of self-seeking, ambition and
greed which some materialistic
philosophers assert it is, if life is a
contest in which all finer sentiments
are subordinate to self-advancement
and success at any price, how is it
that the spirit of Christmas has not
only endured but grown in power
during nearly 2,000 years? If the
pessimists are right, it would seem
that the light would have been extinguished long since and with it
the spirit would have departed.
Were history and our daily lives
not replete with evidences—noble
evidences too—of the unselfishness
in men's hearts, we might be impressed with the teachings of the
sordid and the carpings of the
morbid. Christmas is the symbol
and a celebration of love—love
which is synonymous with charity
and which our purest teaching tells
us is the finest attribute of the soul.
We, who during the past few weeks
have watched the Yuletide preparations, are prepared to say that
they represent a beautiful manifestation of that attribute.
Record Production of
British Columbia's
British Columbia's mineral production in 1927 will be greater than
that in any previous year in the history of the industry in this province,
according to the preliminary survey
of the year's operations just issued
under authority of Honourable
William Sloan, Minister of Mines.
The report estimates the aggregate
production will appoximate 5,000,-
000 tons, as compared with 4,775,-
073 tons in 1926, but owing to
lower average metal prices, as compared with the previous year, the
aggregate value of the minerals
produced will approximate $62,142,
340 as compared with $67, 188,642
in 1926. On the other hand while
the reduction in metal prices will
somewhat decrease profits and dividends, the value of the industry to
the province is in the distribution of
money and wages, supplies, transportation services, etc., and in this
respect there has been no diminution
during 1927. At the 1926 average
price level, this year's estimated production would have a value of about
$70,000,000. The following table
shows the estimated mineral production this year and value thereof,
as compared with the actual figures
of production and value for 1926.

Have you ever had a vision of
what this world would be had
there never been a Christmas-time,
and no reason for one? We do
not like to think of it, for it surely
would be a black time in the
world's history were we to go back
to the day when the Christ child
had not been born.
A Good many things, we have
to pass quite unappreciated until
through some wrench of fortune
they are snatched away from us.
Lovely things, beautiful things,
things we could scarcely do without far too often lie in our hands
without bringing to us a single thrill
of joy or of thanksgiving. We have
them; we enjoy them, but we are
not grateful for them.
Now, we have our Christmas
treasure. It has been ours all our
lives, so long that we have become
accustomed to it. We accept it
and all that comes with it, as a
matter of course; and it means so
little to us! We give; we get, and
we do not stop to think why.
What if a new vision of the Christmas time were to come to us in

Book which has lain on the shelf
so long that the dust is deep on its
covers and read once more the
story of that first Yuletide, the
brightest and the best day that ever
came to this old world, and lingered over it until our souls beat warm
