Anyox Victors Of Big
Hockey Game With
Alice Arm
Wonderful Rally Made  By
Alice Arm in Last 2 Periods
Breaking up and down tlie ice at
a breakneck speed before the
largest crowd of the season at the
Alice Arm Ririk, Anyox and Alice
Ann battled for the three fastest
periods* ?et seen in these parts.
This battle was the best exhibition
of hockey put ou at the Rink for
a long time, and everyone played a
good clean game.
The Teams were: Anyox, 8.
Peters, goal; Defence, A. L. Ployart; forwards, P. Elliott, C. Beau-
lien, H. Moody, H. McDougall, T.
Alice Arm: C. Warner, goal; T.
W. Falooner, defence; Al Falconer,
H. F. Kergin, M. Smith, W. Wells.
Referee: W. M. Cummings.
Anyox were without the services
of Barle Anderson, and Alice Arm
were minus Gus Anderson, and
Geo. Young.
The first period was a catastrophe for the home team, for the
vis*' ... bulged the twine seven
times, while Alice Arm failed to
make a count. Anyox commenced
scoring shortly after the commencement, they bombarded Warner
with a fusilade of. shots, and had
the game all their own way
throughout the period. Elliott
was the big noise for the visitors.
He flioked the puck into the net
four times. McDougall found the
opening twice, and Wilson once.
Anyox had the home team going,
and were making the most of their
opportunity. They hit a dizzy
pace, and shot for goal at every
opportunity. The period closed
Anyox 7, Alice Arm 0.
The second period saw a rearrangement of the Alice Arm
team, Warner playing centre, and
Billy Wells taking his place in
goal. Despite the fact that Anyox
were . seven goals iu the lead, it
was evident that Alice Arm were
going to make a fight for it. The
period had barely commenced,
when Al Falconer uncorked a hot
one and scored the first goal for his
team. Beaulieu caught the puck
on his stick in front of goal, and
beat Wells with a tricky shot,
again giving Anyox a 7 goal lead.
The home team, now that they
had soored seemed to come to life,
and from then to the end of the
game, they played a brand of
hookey that almost snatched
victory from the visitors, and
brought the fans to their feet in
wild excitement.
Al Falconer again found the net
with a speedy shot, and Kergin,
after dashing from one end of the
ioe to the other, drove the puck
past Peters for a third. The
Anyox team were fast losing their
grip on the game, while Alice Arm
were improving, they were indulging in more combination play, and

Elks' Valentine Dance
Is Big Success
Last Friday evening the Elks
gave a very successful dance. A
large crowd was in attendance and
everyone had a word of praise for
the efforts of the entertainment-
committee. Dancing started at
9 o'clock and continued until 2
o'clock, with a short intermission
for eats at about 11.30. The
music was furnished by the Elks'
five-piece orchestra, consisting of
Messrs. Austin, piano; Armstrong,
violin; Waterman, drums; Steele,
trombone; and Stivenard, comet.
The eats and coffee hit the
crowd right. Per usual, Jimmie's
coffee is unbeatable., Those on
the conimitteee in charge were:
Cecil Parmiter, Ed. Waterman,
Mike Oranley, Ed. Wall, Sid. Armstrong, and Jimmie Thompson.
High School Students Will
Battle For Basketball
Friday and Saturday, February
27 and 28; are the dates set for the
return games in the Anyox Gymnasium to settle the inter-High
School Basketball Championship
of northern British Columbia.
Prince Rupert are sending a boys'
team and a girls' team to meet the
Granby Bay Students, in order to
complete the series whioh was
opened during the Christmas "holidays.
In order to provide funds for
this project, the Anyox boys and
girls have carried out a successful
ticket selling campaign. The
visitors will be well entertained
during their week-end stay, and no
pains will be spared to return the
hospitality. During both nights,
additional attractions will be provided by local aggregations.
The Granby Bay High School
players will line up as follows:
Boys: T. Swanson, Cyril McDonald, E. Clay, S. McLachlan, E.
Dupuis, J. Lazoreok.
Girls: Misses M. O'Neil, R.
Champion, J. Moffat, T. Deith, B.
Chapman, A. McLachlan, and J.
Both teams have been training
under the guidance of Mr. James
R. Mitchell, and as coach he is
quite confident that the students
will make a valiant effort to stop
the invader's rush.

Construction Of Hydro-
Electric Plant To Start
In Spring
Messrs. R. Armour and E. R.
Workman, who are interested in
the Alice Arm Hydro-Electric Co.,
arrived from Anyox last Sunday,
and spent the day inspecting the
ftow of water at Falls Creek and
also Canyon Creek.
As this is the low water period
of the year, it was decided to
obtain authentic information regarding the flow of water. The
examination of Falls Creek proved
that sufficient water is flowing to
ensure uninterrupted operation of
the plant throughout the year, and
the plans made last fall by the
company will not be changed,
except that a small dam will be
built. Investigations at Canyon
Creek showed that power can also
be obtained from that source,
should it be necessary.
Construction work of the plant
will be commenced as soon as the
snow is off the ground, and the
first contracts in this connection
will be let about May 1st.
The company realize that the
people of Alice Arm depend for
their future supply of water on
Falls Creek, and Mr. Armour
assured the Herald that an
adequate supply of water would
always be available for the town.
If it was necessary for the company to build a tank, and pump
water into it, they would do so.
Alice Arm Miners Lose All
Their Possessions In Fire
The cabin on the Yellow Jacket
property was burnt to the ground
on Wednesday afternoon, and J.
Hanson and Ed. Nelson lost all
their personal belongings, including the sum of f 75.00 in cash. A
two month's supply of foodstuffs
was also consumed iu the flames.
Messrs. Hanson and Nelson, who
were driving a tunnel on the
Yellow Jacket, left the cabin at
1 p.m. after eating dinner. About
2.45 hearing an explosion, they investigated, and found the cabin a
mass of flames. The explosion, it
is supposed, was caused by a box
of rifle shells.
As nothing could be doiie, both
men walked into town, a distance
of about five miles, All the olothes
they possessed, were the clothes
worn in the mine.
, Messrs. Hanson and Nelson have
driven about 60 feet of tunnel since
Ootober. They intend to come
baok again next fall or the following spring, and oarry on the work
of extending the tunnel.
Principal Brady Gives
Interesting Lecture At
New Drill For Toric Mine
A new Sullivan drifter drill, has
been added to the equipment at
the Torio mine. The drill arrived
from the south some time ago, and
was recently taken to the mine by
T. Tavener and J. Trinder.
It was taken up oil a hand sleigh,
which was a difficult undertaking,
as no trail existed, but it was
eventually landed at the mine.
The new drill requires less air than
the one previously used, and for
this reason the ohange was made.
A large and representative
audience comfortably filled the
Elks' Hall on Thursday evening,
12th. instant, when a public meeting was held by the P. T. Association.
Mr. R. H. Manzer,
who in the absence of
Mr. Bert Kergin, M.LA., occupied
the chair. He briefly outlined the
work of the P.T.A., and extended
a cordial invitation to those parents, who were not already members, to join and take an active
interest in the Association.
Mr. J. Mitchell delighted the
audience with a humourous Irish
Song, which called for an encore.
Dr. Harper favoured the gathering with a pianoforte solo rendered iu his inimitable style, and
kindly responded to a well deserved encore.
The event of the evening was
the popular lecture delivered by
Principal Brady, of Prince Rupert,
whose oratical powers have won
fame throughout the province.
The subjeot of the lecture was
"Wit and Humour," and he could
not have selected a more suitable
topic for an Anyox audience. They
were kept in a ripple of laughter
from start to finish by the many
timely illustrations, of which he
has a remarkable collection.
Like all great lecturers of the
present day, he assured us that
we are living in a remarkable age.
Many problems were called for a
solution, and each one was trying
to solve them to the best of his
ability, We are psycho-analyzing
everything to such an extent that
we are getting to be afraid of one
another. We have reached the
stage when the hours set apart for
work and recreation are not
sufficient for the due consideration
of those pressing problems, and we
insist on taking them to bed with
us. If we are uot to lose the gift
of contentment, a saving sense of
humour is essential.
The distinction between "Wit
and Humour" was indeed subtle,
yet they are often at opposite
poles. Wit is centered in the
realm of the imagination, while
humour is reality as contained in
the little things of everyday life.
Married life was particularly prolific in this respect.
The lecturer emphasised the importance of a good hearty laugh.
It acted as a holiday for the wind,
There would be less fog iu our
minds, if their were more laughter
in our homes.
Everyone could give witty replies
an hour after the incident, but in
order to be considered wit, it was
necessary that the reply be given
at the moment. The Irish race
excelled in this gift of repartee.
Wit is a great peacemaker. All
anger disappears under the influence of a witty rejoinder.

Parasites and producers, builders
and wreckers—every industry
seems to have its quota of each.
The mining industry is cursed with
its full share of the parasites-
human blood suckers who befoul
the clean business of mining and
legitimate mining finance with
their odoriferous presence and
slimy methods.
The Portland Canal district is
destined to become a great mining camp—that is a forgone conclusion. As a natural consequence the harpies of the mining
industry are sure to be on the job.
We have a couple of them pegged already. They fleece the
public and step high, wide and
handsome where the liquor flows
and the ladies of easy virtue hold
forth. They do not pay their
legitimate obligations and seldom
does a dollar get by into the channels intended by the so called invested. These people are a detriment to the entire industry. Their
activities should be flooded with
the sunlight of publicity and we
intend to keep our eyes open and
say what we think when the
occasion warrants and the need
arises.    Alaska Weekly.

Interesting Lecture At
P. T. A Meeting
Continued from Page  1
He then procceeded to analyse
the sense of humour, as displayed
by the English, Scotch, and Irish.
The Scotch stories "were usually
of suoh a nature that they appeared derogatory to Scotland, yet
none loved his country more than
the Scot. That of the ''meanest
Scot" was a common one, but such
a personality was difficult to find
in everyday life.
The Irish story on the other
hand was the opposite of the
Scotch. It is humour usually
consisted in the foolishness of the
Irishman, but the Irish race had
not a, larger per oentage of fools
than any other. He was spoken
of as being generous to a degree,
but there were some Irish who had
a marked ' Scotch" propensity in
the matter of thrift.
English humour was of a different type, which could be illustrated better than explained. This the
lecturer, with the assistance of
Mrs. Brady, proceeded to do, aud
a most entertaining sketch entitled "Sir Peter and Lady Teasle,"
was produced.
Mr. R. Armour moved a vote of
thanks to Principal Brady which
was seconded by Mr. E. J. Conway, and passed by acclamation.
The meeting was closed by .singing the National Anthem. Refreshments were served by the
lady members of tK<> P.T.A.
Hon. Wm. Sloan Seeks
Assistance For Mining
Hon. William Sloan, minister of
mines, has taken up with the
federal government the subject of
assistance to mining development
in British Columbia. It is pointed out that while the federal
government profits from mineral
production, it gives little aid to the
1 The most affective aid to mining
is in the construction of roads,
trails and bridges. The provincial
department of mines annually
spends thousands of dollars in the
maintainance of old roads and
trails and in the construction of
new ones in sections where mining
development is reported to require
such improvements.
As this expenditure on the part
of the province directly benefits
the federal treasury by increasing
mineral output, the Provincial
Government takes the position
that the federal government ought
to contribute a share of the cost of
transportation improvements.
Transportation improvements in
mining sections are made on recommendation of district engineers employed by the provincial department of mines. These improvements are apart from the ordinary
commercial road improvements by
the department of public works.

were not so anxious to hog the
puek. Alice Arm had the edge on
their opponents throughout the
period, and tlie end of the
period saw tile score, Anyox 8,
Alice Ann :i
The third period belonged to
Alice Arm entirely. They scored
four goals, and held their opponents down lo nothing. Warner was the first to place the disk
in the desired position, when he
loosed one of his characteristicshots.
He repeated the performance in
a few minutes, and won the
applause of the delighted fans.
The game at this stage consisted of
a continual bombardment of the
Anyox goal, every player taking a
hand in uncorking his. best.
Peters in goal was continually on
on the jump. He saved a pile of
shots, but it was impossible to stop
verything he received. T. W. Falconer was the next to place the
rubber between the posts, with a
lot one from centre. Al Falconer
kept the good work up when he
received a nice pass from Warner,
and brought the soore for the
home team up to 7.
Anyox made repeated dashes
clown the ice, but their efforts
were of no avail, and the most
exciting game ever played on the
local rink closed with the score of,
Anyox 8, Alice Arm 7. This
game gives the northern coast
championship to Anyox.
Although Alice Arm did not
win the game, they came within
an ace of doing so, and the result
shows that a game is not won or
lost until the final whistle blows.
Every player for Alice Arm
played a high speed game, and the
latter stages were marked with
the passing of the puck, a praotice
that should be followed more
frequently. Wells in goal gave his
team great support.
For the visitors Elliot was the
bright light. All the others acquitted themselves well, and played
good hockey. They were handicapped owing to the lack of skating facilities at the smelter town.
With more practice together they
would be a combination hard to
