Hockey League Games
Proving Great
The three teams comprising the
Alice Arm Hookey League have
now settled down to business and
some interesting games have been
played during the week. Tho
Wildcats are at present in the lead
but their position is precarious as
both the Bears and Tigers mean to
pull them from their proud position.
Since the first game last Friday
all three teams have shown a
marked improvement in their play,
and from now on the fans will
be treated to some fine exhibitions
of the national game. A large
number of fans have attended each
game, and the number is increasing as the schedule progresses.
The game on Monday evening
between the Wildcats and Tigers,
was an exhibition of dazzling play
by the Wildcats. Their superior
combination play,, coupled with
the brilliant work of Warner in
goal won the game for them. The
- Tigers fully lived up to their name,
but as this was their first appearance on the ice they failed to take
advantage --of- all openings; The
score was Wildcats 10, Tigers 5.
The teams were: Wildcats,
Warner, goal; Gus Anderson; H.
Butler, H. Mann, J. Morrison.
Tigers: P. Williamson, goal; T.
W. Falconer, Geo. Young, M
Smith, Dick Roberts.
On Wednesday evening the
Tigers and the Bears, tore into
eaoh other for three hectic periods.
The Tigers were the first to
score, and placed the disk in the
net three times in the first period.
The Bears followed suit in the
second period, making the score 3-
3. In the third period the Tigers
found the net three times and the
Bears once. The score being
Tigers 6, to 4.
The teams were: Tigers, P.
Williamson, goal; T. W. Falconer,
G. Young, M. Smith. J. Hanna,

last two periods.
Bears: A. D. Yorke, goal: Al.

The Wildcats and the Bears
again made the fur fly on each
other yesterday evening. In the
most desperately fought game of
the season the Bears emerged victorious with a score of 4-3.
Mr. and Mrs. E. Moss desire to
express their gratitude to all those
who helped salvage their personal
effects during the recent fire; also
to those who rendered invaluable
assistance during the following few
days and to those, who by presents
of clothing helped them out of a
difficult position.

Fire Destroys House and
Goods At Alice Arm
A somewhat serious fire, and
one that might have ended iu a
tragedy, occurred, last Saturday,
when the home of the editor
caught fire, burning part of the
household effects, and totally destroying the house, which was
owned by Mr. James Nick.
The cause of the fire was caused
by a lighted candle, which was
left burning by mistake upstairs,
and it is thought that something
fell from the back of the dresser on
which the candle was standing.
Mr. aud Mrs. Moss with their
eldest daughter were skating on
the rink, almost opposite and in
full view of the house, whioh
stands high on the hillside.
About 45 minutes after they had
left the house, Mr. J. Strombeek
noticed a red glare through the
window, and raised the alarm,
which quickly spread to the rink.
The two youngest daughters of
the family, aged 5 and 3, were
asleep upstairs, and great apprehension prevailed regarding then-
safety. Mr. Strombeok was the
first to reach the contlagation, aud
was relieved to see the two tots
standing on' the stairway. The
eldest had awakened, she then
awoke her sister and together they
went downstairs.
The fire had already taken a
strong hold, and as there was not
any water available it was impossible to endeavour to save the
Luckily a large number of persons were at the Skating Rink,
aud these arrived quickly on the
scene, aud the work of removing
the household goods was undertaken.
Access could not be gained upstairs on account of the dense
smoke, and all efforts were concentrated downstairs, from which
a portion of the goods were removed. Fire drove the rescuers
back, however,, before everything
could be saved. All the clothing
of the family was destroyed except what they happened to be
wearing at the time. They spent
the three successive nights at the
home of Mr. and Mrs, H. F. Kergin,
until new quarters could be obtained,
No insurance was carried either
on the building or household goods.
Toric May Commence
Shipping Ore
Mr. A. 0. H. Gerhardi, general
manager for the Homestake Mining Co. who returned yesterday
from Vanoouver, states that it is
probable that ore shipments from
the Toric will commence this
month. Average assays taken
from samples from whioh native
silver had been exoluded gave returns of over 45 ounces silver per
ton. He also stated that two new
gasoline speeders had been purchased for use on the Dolly Varden
Railway next summer,. Regarding the outlook at the mine he
could not say anything until he
had made an inspection. In reply to a question regarding future
plans he said it was a little early
to make any statements.

Company Is Formed In
Victoria   To   Develop
Alice Arm Mining
Information has been received
from Victoria by the Herald, that
a company has been formed in that
city for the purpose of \developing
mining properties in the upper
Kitsault country.
This company is known as the
Kitsault River Mining and Development Co. Ltd, of Alice Arm B.
C. The capitalization of the com
pany is $1,000,000, divided into
one million shares at $1.00 each.
The company has been formed
by Mr. Elmer Ness, who left here
several weeks ago, for the purpose
of developing the Fox-Matilda and
Bine Ribbon group of claims.
These properties are situated
near the Kitsault river glacier, approximately eight miles north of
the Dolly Varden railway terminus, and is connected by a good
pack trail from\the end of the railway. \
The rock formation is what is
locally known as the Dolly Varden
formation. The ore showings are
extremely encouraging, as there
are three large veins or mineralized zones running through the property, and are known as the
Homestake, Fox, and Silver Tip
veins. These are cut by a number
of cross veins or fractures, showing a heavy mineralized lead-silver
ore, also copper and chalcopyrite.
The different claims that have
been grouped, are owned by
Messrs. Oscar Flint, John Fiva,
and Elmer Ness of Alice Arm, and
I*Arthur Smith of Seattle. In
order to give every encouragement
to capital they have decided to re-
linguish all cash payments, and
will take full payment for their
property in stock in the company.
This means that the company will
be placed in a very favorable condition, as they will not be called
upon to make heavy cash payments to the owners, as is generally
the case. It is also proved that
the owners have every faith in the
property and are willing to take
an even chance with the shareholders.
With such a big burden removed from the shoulders of the company it has a great advantage, as it
means that all money will be spent
on the ground, and the shareholders will get a dollars worth of
work for every dollar subscribed.
Mr. Elmer Ness, who has organized the company, and is now in
Victoria, is a practical mining
man. He has followed mining for
over twenty years and knows a
promising prospect when he sees
one. He is a firm believer in
spending the money on the ground,
and under his management success
will undoubtedly be attained, and
the rich ore deposits of the Kitsault glacier will become creators
of wealth.
The property is situated in what
is considered   one    of   the   best

O. Elks gave the kiddies a nice
send-off into the New Year last
Friday evening,
At 6 o,clock a banquet was held
in the Dug-out at the Elks, Home,
and after all had enjoyed the good
eats,' the remainder of the programme was finished upstairs in
the Hall, Rev. Gibson, Vic Cruikshank, and Mel Gow entertained
the kiddies for awhile aud helped
them to start the various games.
Musical Chairs being a popular
number, with Mrs. Herrin presiding at the piano. During the
entertainment Santa Claus made
his appearance distributing nuts
and  candies etc.   iu   abundance.
One of the best numbers on the
programme was the Misses Francis
and Florence Kelly in a very
pretty dance, Mrs. Herrin accompanying on the piano. TI.e evening ended with a very enioyable
dance from 8 to 10, the Elks' orchestra furnishing the music.
The kiddies all voted that it was a
whale of a good time with nothing
left out, it not being forgotten to
have transportation for the children from the Mine. The committee in charge consisted of Chas.
MacLachlan, James Wier, Hurry
Kirk, Ed. Ashton, and Mrs. Morton, Mrs. Waterman, Mrs. MacLachlan, Mrs. Weir, and Mrs.
Robertson. Jimmie Thomson
very capably took the part of
Santa Claus.
Anyox Basketball
Smelter Win From Mine
Basketball was resumed on Monday evening, at the Mine Gymnasium. Two games were played,
a Senior League fixture and an exhibition game staged by the ladies.
The. Smelter were the victors in
the senior tussle, the Mine quintette being the victims. The game
was fairly close with the Smelter
having a little- the better of the
going throughout. The score was
38 to 28. Bob Stewart made his
initial appearance of the season
and turned in a nice performance
for the losers. By virtue of their
win the Smelter climbed to the
leadership of the League, being
two points above the Coke Plant
and Mine teams.
The Bluebirds were the best
finishers in their game with the
Mine, aud won, after trailing until
a few minutes of the finish. The
score was 20 to 17.
Immediately after play ceased,
dancing was indulged iu by players

Outlook Bright For
Lead, Zinc and
This metal is the leader of the
procession in advancing prices.
The current advance, which has
been maintained steadily for a
number of weeks, was not unexpected. It is not without an
element of danger, as there is possibility of a runaway market if
buyers get it into their heads that
they will be faced with a worse
shortage before long. This feeling,
as before will cause them to flock
into the market and stock up, then
demand will slacken and down
will go the price with consequent
disruption all along the line. Big
producers of the metal are hoping
that things may straighten out
without any great harm being
This metal, long in the clumps,
has been showing a healthy
amount of activity, but so far has
not exhibited the runaway tendency shown by lead. Foreign demand is pronounced and domestic
consumption appears to hold  well.
The red metal situation has been
decidedly on the mend, much to
the relief of the copper boosters,
who were beginning to feel that
there would never again be a kick
to it. While advance in price during recent weeks has uot been sen- j
8ational, it has been steady and sus
tained, and does not seem likely to
result in reaction.
In summarizing the copper sit
nation for the year, Carey of the
Boston Commercial says: "Refinery exports of copper for all of
1924 should be excess of 1,000,
000,000 pounds. During the nine
months ended September 30 last.
exports exceeded 815,000,000
pounds, as compared with total
refinery exports during all 1923 of
but 844,000,000 pounds. The
average in pre-war years was close
to 800,000,000 pounds, so that in
spite of unfa>'orablo conditions
prevailing in Europe since the beginning of 1924 there has, nevertheless, been a substantial increase
in the volume of foreign business
done by American producing companies. It is pointed out that, if
consumption of copper by Europe
had proceeded at anything like the
rate maintained in the United
States, exports this year would
have a huge total. There seems
little doubt that 1925 coppor exports will be even greater than
those of the current year, notwithstanding the fact that 1924 is a record year in this department.

Good Times Ahead
The outlook for the mining industry throughout British Columbia for the coming year is particularly bright.   Copper has advanced in price to around the  15
cent mark, and is  expected  to
maintain that price for some time.
Lead and   zinc  are   demanding
prices that makes the mining of
these metals extremely profitable,
while silver is ranging from 67 to
70 cents per ounce.    The four
above mentioned metals are extensively    produced    in    British
Columbia, and the north coast district is exceptionally rich in these
minerals.    It is stated that money
is plentiful for mining   purposes,
and the coming year should witness a great activity   in   mining
throughout the north.   Alice Arm
and Anyox district will without
doubt share in the increased prosperity.   At the present time everything is in favor of considerable
activity, aud the coming year  will
perhaps be the commencement of
real honest mining in the Alice
Arm district, from which there will
be no turning back.

optimism is now retleoted than has
been tlie case in many months.
The concensus of good opinion is
that prioes will continue to move
toward higher levels. However,
conservative interests do not favor
a rapid advance on the grounds
that such a move would create
some opposition and a more cautious buying attitude on the part
of consumers as well as to increase
production which might result in
larger available supply than could
be easily handled. While there is
now a large demand for copper
metal it is also true that production capacity has broadened considerably in recent years, so that
operations on a full scale might
result in over-production weaken-
of the market's technical position.
For such reasons as this the best
interests of copper industry will be
served if the market is permitted
to move upward only in response
to the factor of supply and demand—Spokane Mining Truth.

The Premier Gold Mining Company, controlled by the Guggenheim interests, has declared an
extra dividend of two cents on its
common shares in addition to the
regular quarterly dividend of eight
cents. The total disbursement aggregates $500,000.
With the payment of the third
quarterly payment of the present

paid a total of $6,800,000 in divi-
dends since the first dividend was
deolared in December 1921.
As the company is capitalized at

In addition to this spectaoular
dividend production, the mine has
been to a large extent equipped
and developed from its own earnings. Perusal of the pages of mining history discloses few silver
mines that have achieved such a
spectacular record, and few quartz
mines of any character have paid
a greater amount in dividends in
an equal period of production.
During the year 1923 the Premier mined a total of 145.655 dry
tons of ore, from which was produced 117,293 ounces of gold, and
2,746,551 ounces of silver, according to the last annual report
to stockholders. In addition, the
stated amount of ore yielded 62,-
