Logging  operations were com-
Jmeneed this week, by Trethewey
iBros.,   of  Abbotsford,   on    their
holdings on the Alice Arm Flats,
immediately north and east of the
■town.
Mr. James E. Trethewey arrived
ou Monday, with a party of ten
men for the purpose of building
camps and starting preliminary
work. The scow building used by
F.Miller at Way Point, will be
used as temporary quarters, until
material arrives for building a permanent camp, and work on making
the building suitable is now under
'way.
In an interview with the Herald,
Mr. Trethewey said that it is their
intention to first build camps.
-Work on the logging railway and
dock will then be proceeded with.
A booming ground will also be
made and falling timber will be
carried on throughont the winter,
so that an abundance of logs will
be on hand for pulling early in the
I spring.
The logging dock will be built on
. piles, and the railway will also be
built on piles. The railway will
be about one mile in length, and
will run in a straight line back into
the woods. Donkey engines will
haul the logs from the woods to
the railway.
Piles will also be driven for the
booming ground, which will be
built around the dock. A pile
driver from Anyox will be used for
this work, and is expected here at
any time.
Two donkey engines are due to
arrive in about two weeks, and
also a locomotive, railway steel,
and a large quantity of other material   necessary  for logging oper^
atioms.
As soon as a permanent camp is
constructed, and the scope of
operations widens out, more men
will be employed, and by March
next, when it is expected that the
pulling of logs will be commenced,
at least fifty men will be on the
payroll.
Mr. Trethewey stated that they
had enough timber on their limits
to carry on operations for at least
three years.
The Alice Arm Flats contain a
large amount of valuable spruce
timber, and all the timber logged
will be made up into Davis rafts
and towed to Ocean Falls to be
manufactured into paper.
It is confidently expeoted that
the entire country surrounding the
town will be logged off during the
next few years, as the timber is
becoming affected by the smelter
smoke from Anyox, and if left for
an indefinite period will' become a
total loss.
Bert Kergin is Having
Very Busy Time
The Regular Weekly meeting of

Wednesday evening, November
29th. Present: Pres. Ferguson,
Seoy-Treas. Lowry, Councillors
Mrs. McKay, Messrs. Rowley, Noel,
McTaggart and Murdooh.
The minutes of the previous

on motion by Mr. Lowry, whioh
was seconded by Mr. Murdoch.
The Secretary reported asfollows:
In reply  to  the  request  of  the
Mine Club for a meeting between
committee from League Council to
go into the matter of recreation, etc.
at the Mine, a letter was forwarded
with the result that the Ways and
Means Committee of the Council
met the Mine Representatives last
Saturday night.    As a result of
that meeting the Ways and Means
Committee has framed a proposal
whioh it considers equitable and
which will be submitted for your!
approval     and     be     forwarded
unomcialiy  to  the   Mine   Club,
pending  action  by the   Council.
A  meeting  of  the   Card    Club
Organization Committee was held
last Thursday evening and one or
more members of that committee
may report further on what was
outlined   at    the    meeting.     A
meeting to do with the organization
of a Skating Club was held on
Monday evening and a Committee
appointed   to  make   the   initial
preparations, which includes   the
securing  of   members   who   are
willing to pay for season tickets iu
the event of ice  being  available.
The Maple Bay Cafe premises will
be vacated by Mr. Jessop at the
end of the month and Mr. Gillespie
will  take immediate    possession.
Mr. Wing  will  prepare  a  lease.
Letters have been forwarded   to
Spalding Bros, and Birk Bros, in
connection with the medals ordered
for   the    baseball   and   football
championships.
In the matter of the Skating
Rink, Mr. Rowley told of initial
steps taken, and that an ice surface
70ft. by 100ft. was available at the
Flats. Work would commence on
this the day following the meeting.
Mr. Lowry reported to some
extent in connection with the
starting of a card tournament. It
had been decided that the first
tournament would consist of cribbage, and one other game, either
whist or bridge. The entrance fee
would be 50 cents and each entrant
would play five games each night
while the tournament lasted, points
to count for prizes, which would be
appropriate, a small dance marking the final of the card plaping.
In regard to the changes proposed in connection with the stand in
the Reoreation Hall, Mr. Noel
stated that he and Mr. Selfe had
Grand Variety Concert
Held at Anyox
Victoria, November 28th.—H. F.
Kergin, member for Atlin, has been
taking up with the minister of
mines, a number of mining
questions and is constantly on the
job in looking after the interests of
his constituency. He was planning
to make a speech on the budget
debate in connection with the
mining industry, but has decided
to speak instead on a later occasion, when his remarks can be given
a little more attention. On Friday,
when the budget debate closed, the
members were tired and were not
giving much attention to speakers
on either side of the House. Reporters were fed up with work and
the galleries were almost deserted.
To have spoken on such an occasion
would have been a waste of time
and effort.
The influence of the north in the
Legislature is a frequent subject of
comment here. ; Two ministers
from the north, and two independent supporters of the Government

large influence in the affairs of the
province.
Work Re-commences
on the Lone Maid
- Work was recommenced on the
Lone Maid property this week, and
it is the intention of the owners to
carry on development work
throughout the winter. The tunnel being driven on the property is
now in 50 feet, and some good
silver ore has been encountered.
The Lone Maid has all the earmarks of shortly developing into a
steady shipper. It is situated in a
proven mineral belt being situated
between the Esperanza and the
Alice, and work on this property
during the coming winter will be
watched with interest.
Next Week's Debate
The weekly debate of the Alice
Arm Debating Sooiety will be held
in the Coliseum, on Tuesday evening, at 8 p.m. Entertainment will
be provided after the debate. The
subject for next week is: "Resolved
that the people of the world are
getting worse, mentally, norally,
and physically." Those speaking
in the affirmative are: Miss Nettie
Hogburg, C. P. Riel, J. Anderson
Negative: Miss Zorka,Sutilovich,

The Anglioan Church put on a
Grand Variety Concert in the
Reoreation Hall on Friday Nov. 24
which was a decided success, both
as regards a large audience and
quality of entertainment. Long
before tfhe advertised time for
curtain raising every seat in the
house was ocoupied and many who
had failed to procure tickets
beforehand had the misfoitune to
be turned away.
The Anyox Brass band was
present and excellently rendered
several selections, which were
greatly enjoyed by everyone.
Band master J. J. Varnes and
associates are making, great
progress, and well earned the
ovation accorded them.
The band' opened the programme
with, "Cantemptibles," a march by
Stanley, followed by "Sunset on
the St. Lawrence," "Wounded
Bird," and Glow Worm,"
Number two item, a sketch, "Box
and Cox," was replete with mirth
| from start to finish and admirably
I played, "Mr. Box" by W. J. Pamplin, "Mr. Cox" by Mr. Rowbottom,
and the part of the landlady, "Mrs.
Bouncer" was cleverly handled by
Mrs. S. Herrin.
No. 3. Fred Archer, in "The
Parson's Son" gave a wonderful
portrayal of one of Robert W.
Service's masterpieces, who was
introduced by W. Corbett.
No. 4. Messrs. Berry, Leggett,
Morrow, and Niokerson, as "Four
Bashful Blighters in Baleful
Bleatiugs," brought the house
down with their clever patter and
songs. They were accompanied on
the piano by Mrs. D. Buzzelle.
No. 6 was thd prettiest scene of
the evening. The stage being most
artistically set out by T. P. Ryan.
Mrs. F. M. Kelley's senior pupils
whose dresses were in harmony
with the general artistic surroundings, danced the "Spring Dance,"
which was greatly appreciated.
Miss Leitch presided at the piano.
Mrs. Kelley is to be congratulated
upon the efficiency of her pupils.
No. 7. Mr. W. F. Eve, ever
welcome on any programme, delighted the audience with two
vocal selections, for which he was
accorded his usual rousing applause.
No. 8. The final number was a
forty-five minute sketoh, entitled
"A Fearful Frost," which showed
some very clever acting by those
taking part. Miss R. Champion,
as "Emily," the dutiful daughter
handled her part to perfection, and
Mrs. C. McLachlan, as Mrs. Wat-
muff," the strict head of the house
could not be excelled, Noel
Ballion, as "Walter" made an ideal
lover. W. E. Yard, who had the
bigger part of the business to carry
handled his part in a professional
manner. J. W. Esplin, as "Ferd-
nand Swift," the nephew, filled the
bill.
The weekly debate of the Alice
Arm Debating Society, was held in
the Coliseum on Tuesday evening.
The subject under discussion was:
"Resolved" that the horse is more
beneficial than the. automobile.
Those speaking in favor of the
horse were: S. Dumas. G. Bruggy.
G. Anderson. 'The speakers for
the automobile, were: F. Miller,
J. Fiva. G. McCulloch.
S. Dumas, opened the debate
with a snappy address, given in his
usual convincing style. He
claimed that horses are increasing
in Canada and the United States,
and that they cannot be dispensed
with, and are gradually replacing
autos.
F. Miller, was the next speaker.
He contended that the horse. has
gone forever, as the automobile has
greater speed, and one tractor can
do the work of 30 or 40 horses.    **
G. Anderson gave a few facts
regarding the usefulness of a horse.
He said that autos cannot be used
in the woods, or in the snow, and
the prospector could not get his
supplies into the hills except by
using the horse.
J. Fiva in championing the auto,
said that owing to greater speed,
many lives have been saved owing
to doctor's getting to the scene of
accidents quicker and predicted
that the horse would soon be a
thing of thepast.
G. Bruggy gave a host of facts
to show the superioity of the horse
over the auto. He said, the life of
ahorse is much longer than the
auto. And proved that transfer
Companies and others were changing from autos to horses as fast as
possible and that the horse is. of
greater benefit to man than the
auto.
Mr. McCulloch maintained that
autos are doing a large share towards the advancement of the
world. Present conditions call for
speed, and the auto is doing it's
part. The horse is too slow for
present day conditions.
S. Dumas in a 5-minute rebuttal,
scored his opponents for previous
remarks, and ended the debate
with a high-power speech in favor
of the horse.
On a vote being taken, those
speaking in favor of the horse
were declared the winners. The
vote being, horses 38. automobdles
10. This is the largest majority
obtained since the debates were
commenced.
Following the debate a five
hundred drive was held, and a
pleasant 2 hours were spent in
playing cards. The prize winners
were, ladies Mrs. C. P. Riel; gentlemen. M. Peterson. Booby prize,
G. Anderson. Prizes were donated
by S. Dumas and H. Fowlw. A
pleasant surprise awaited everyone
at the conclusion when refreshments
were annonnced. Miss B.
Crawford. Mrs. W. R. McLeod and
Mrs. G. Anderson, being the hosts. ■■■■■■si

Prohibition.
A lot of criticism has lately been
levelled at the present Liquor Act
of the province, but no word of
praise is ever given. It is however
a fact, that if we look at the situation from an unbiased point of
view the present Act is the only
logical way to handle the liquor
traffic of the province. The
present Act makes it possible for
the government to collect substantial amounts of revenue from
persons who do not mind paying.
Municipalities also derive benefit
which helps to relieve taxation.
The public are not forced to break
the law in order to obtain stimulants, as would be the case were
absolute prohibition in force.
Liquor stores are located at convenient points throughout the province
and when a person needs something a little stronger than milk to
drink he does not have to sneak
around the byways and frequent
low "dives" in order to obtain it,
thus breaking the law and encouraging others to break it. Under
the present system, a man can walk
boldly up and buy a bottle of pure
liquor and act like a man. Total
prohibition tends to breed a race
of hypocrites, liars, theives, and
dope fiends, and this, British Columbia can not afford to do.
Alice Arm Debating
Society.
The Alice Arm Debating
Society is filling a long felt want
in the town. Interesting debates
are held each week, which are
well attended, which fact shows
that the people appreciate the
efforts made to cater to their
enjoyment. It is hoped that the
debates will be carried on throughout the winter, interspersed with
social events. The holding of
debates each week, gives anyone
who cares to take advantage of the
opportunity a chance to improve
their platform speaking. They
are instructive to the audience, and
are also the means of getting the
people together to mix in social
events held after the debates. We
have to provide our own enioy-
ment during the coming winter,
and the Debating Society will,
with the co-operation of the people
of the town, do its utmost to
provide necessary recreation during
the winter months.
Alice Arm Citizens'
Association Meet
The regular monthly meeting of
the Alice Arm Citizens' Association
was held in the Anglican Church
Building, on Saturday, November
25th.
A large number of members
were present, and a fair amount of
business was transacted. Chairman: President C. P. Riel.
The minutes of the previous
meeting were read and adopted.
The secretary read a letter from
H. F. Kergin, M.L.A. in regard
to constructing a bridge across the
Kitsault River, in which he assured
the Association that this matter
was being taken up by him. A
letter was read from Hon T. D.
Patullo, minister of lands, regarding the killing of timber in this
vicinity by the smelter smoke of
Anyox, and he said that the
matter was receiving the consideration of the Forestry Department.
A letter was also read from the
Prince Rupert Board of Trade asking the co-operation of the association in regard to the marketing of
beef from the Bulkley Valley,
which was now being placed on
the market. On a motion by H.
Fowler, seconded by A. Falconer,
the correspondence was filed.
In regard to the money obtained
from the sale of poppies on Armistice Day, H. Fowler made the
suggestion that the money be
forwarded to the Service Association at Anyox, and on a motion
made by M. Petersen, seconded by
G. Bruggy it was decided that
this be done. A vote of thanks
was given to H. Fowler for arranging for the sale of poppies etc. and
also to Alice Hogburg and Lome
Falconer, who had charge of the
sale of poppies.
Salmon River Railway
To Be Built
The contracting firm of Seims &
Carlson of Spokane have taken a contract to build 13 miles of railway up
the Salmon valley, according to a
statement made to The News last week
by G. A. Carlson, member of the firm,
just before he left for Juneau on the
Prince of Wales, from Hyder.
After spending nearly a week in
the camp in company with Charles
Caldwell, holder of a charter for the
road, Mr. Carlson, a veteran railway
builder, was convinced not only of the
feasibility of the line but also of the
fact that it is warranted and will be a
good investment. Surveys will commence as soon as possible, and will be
followed closely by actual construe^
tion.
The line will commence from a point
on the water front at Hyder, Alaska,
and run up the east side of the valley.
Naas Valley Notes

|he handicaps were figured out this
vould start. ■
Mr. Selfe thought that as he
Ityas going to Vanoouver about the
■middle of January, that he would
■be in a good position to get fixtures
(for the soft drink stand at better
■prices than the Council could
■possibly do by writing. This need
luot delay the main alterations,
Ihowever. It was moved by Mr.
ILowry and seconded by Mr.
[Murdoch that the first steps in con-
(neotion with the proposed
I alterations be made to the stand.
Mr.   Lowry  gave  notice of  a
[motion that he would bring up at
I the next meeting of the Counoil, to
I ask the Council  to  endorse  the
proposals made to the Mine Club,
Mr. Lowry also made a motion to
the effect that the Card Tourna-
I ment would  start   on    Monday
night, December 4th, in the Reading Room, as 8 p.m.
Mr. Rowley asked about a musio
teaoher. The seoretary reported
that there was nothing further to
report, but suggested that the
committee might meet and decide
what further should be done, Mrs.
McKay felt that a music teacher,
had a splendid opportunity in
Anyox. Mr. Noel asked if it was
1 intended to use the new gymnasium
for dances. Considerable discussion took place in this connection, as
well as on the subject of equipment
in which ex-Councillor Simpson
took part. It was finally agreed
that the whole matter be left in the
I "hands of the Finance" Committee
and the Chairman of Recreation.
One in Every Seven-
/   teen is a Japanese
British Columbia statistics show
that in 1910, Japanese births in the
province were 1 to 252 white births;
in 1914 about 1 in 61; but in 1920
about 1 in 171
From 1911-1922 there have been
more Japanese women than men
admitted to Canada 1
Such were the startling figures
given in an address, "Some Aspects
of Our Immigration Problem," at
the annual meeting of the Ottawa
Women's Club, by Miss Charlotte
Whitton, convenor of immigration
for the National Counoil of
Women.
Startling figures of Canada's
increasing numbers of yellow races
and the loss of 1,288,000 Canadians
in ten years to the States were
sensational features of Miss Whit-
ton's address.
The term Grand Oanyon applies to
that part of the Colorado river which
lies in northern Arizona. It is a gorge
217 miles long, 4000 to 8000 feet deep
and from 1 to 15 miles wide at the top.
Far away to the north, however, on
Green river, a tributary of the Colorado, there begins a greatly depressed
river bed that continues through Utah
and Arizona for 1000 miles, "more
mysterious in their depths than the
Himalayas in height,"
Pat Daly, managing-director of
the Daly Alaska mines, expects to
leave for New York, Sunday, on business in connection with the Daly Alaska and other promotions.—Portland
