\ Anyox Wins First
I   Hockey Game
i
of Season
The first hockey game of the
season to be played between Alice
Arm and the Anyox Mine Club,
waB held at the Alice Arm Arena,
on Monday last. A series of
friendly games have been arranged
for the coming months and if the
game on Monday is any criterion
of the class of hookely to be handed
out to the fans, this season, the
game will receive great support.
A large number of enthusiastic
fans witnessed the game, including
a   contingent  from   Anyox, who
made the trip over to see their
team in action and cheer them on
to victory.
The teams lined.up as follows:
Anyox: Dick Stubbs, goal; A. L.
I Ployart,   defense;    Ted   Wilson,
I right wing;   E. Anderson, centre;
Dooley Deane, left wing.
Alice Arm:   M. D. Ross, goal;
T. W. Falconer, defense; G. Ander-
'f'&on, right wing; E. R. Oatman,
centre: Al. Falconer, left wing.
Referee: Dick Manning.
"From   the  first   toot    of   the
I referee's whistle, both teams started
■offwith a rush,  and   each   were
i intent  on  obtaining the lead as
Iquickly as possible.   A ding dong
f game ensued up and down the ice,
land   both goalkeepers were kept
[busy in succession.   Anyox scored
I the   first  goal,   when   Anderson
fidrove the disc between the posts,
farter five minutes of play.
It was now evident that in spite
| of the fact that the Anyox team,
j with the exception of Ted Wilson,
[were composed  of  new   players,.
|| were a speedy bunch and needed
I watching, and Alice Arm rose' to
Ithe oooasion.    They threw their
|' whole weight into the contest, and
'although they gave Stubbs a lot of
'work to do, they failed to place
I'the puck between the posts and
§ the first period ended with a soore
m of 1-0 in favor of the visitors.
"At the opening of the second
■■ period  it   was evident that   the
terrific pace was beginning to tell
on the players.   Barney Gray re-
I'lieved T. W. Falconer for a short
spell,  and later relieved Oatman
for.  a few minutes.   This period
j was a disastrous one for Alice Arm.
i Anyox were now settljug down to
■''play hockey and they succeeded in
'bagging -two  goals.      Anderson,
j;who was  now   playing   defence,
Jscoring both with lightning rushes.
f   Alice Arm were putting, up a
Ijstrenuous fight and gave the visi-
Ino rest.,   They bombarded Stubbs
f with numerous hot shots and came
Iwithin an ace of scoring several
fetimes, but their efforts were futile,
land the period closed   with' the
Jsoore 3r0 in favor of the miners;

I sensational of the game.   The local

Elks New Year
Dance
On the evening of January 1st,
the New Year was started off in a
merry mood, with a grand dance
'by the Elks, who make this an
annual affair. Last year, their
own hall was found to be too
small to accomodate the large
throng attending, so this year, the
more spaoious Recreation Hall was
engaged for the occasion.       #
The "Brother Bills" introduced
a new departure for these parts in
the way of decorations,.. Christmas
Trees covered with snow, were-
placed on the stage, and at intervals around the hall. Snowflakes,
as large as goose, feathers were
suspended from the ceiling, in a
dense cloud, illuminated with' blue
stars. ' The whole having the effect
of a snowstorm by moonlight.
The orohestra, which occupied
the stage behind a snow shower,
played better than we have heard;
for some time. The musicians
were: Messrs. Liddel, violin: Haesler, t, piano; Varnes, euphonium;
Prevost, banjo mandolin; Tyne-
ir'onth, drums. Max Morrow
added occasional extra charm with
a few vocal numbers from the
Bashful Blighters.
Supper was served at midnight,
and there was no lack of eatables.
The committee responsible for
the success of the dance, were:
Messrs.1 Thorley, Leggett, Jones,
Whittaker, Draudson and Ryan.

Alice Arm Hold New
Year Dance
The New Year's Dance held at
the Alice Arm Hotel, on Monday
evening, was a very successful
affair. A large number of people
were present, and dancing continued until 3. a. m. The orohestra,
composed of Miss Virginia Riel and
R. F- McGinnis, piano; E. Ness
mandolin; J. Fiva. guitar, gave a
decided kick to the evenings jovility,
and the music was greatly appreciated. .:■;     i}.
During the supper T. Blaok,
sang, ' Bonnie Mary of Argyle."
The musical three, Messrs. Fiva,
Oatman and Graham also sang
several choruses. A dainty supper
was served by Mrs. E. M. MoCoy,
and it was the general verdict that
the dance was a decided success,
and everyone had cause to congratulate themselves for being
present.
A Big Night at the
Anyox Mine Club
On Saturday evening, December
30th, the Mine Club held a party
for mere men only, and a most,
convivial affair it was, In the new
A. C. L. Hall, which is just about
the right size for such an occasion.
' The hall, which looks well with
its white pannelled walls and
ceiling, was in gala attire for the
festive occasion, having been opened on Wednesday, with a dance,:
whioh was followed on Friday,
with a Christmas Tree, for the
youngsters at the Mine.
On Saturday night, the body of
the hall was occupied with some
twenty or more" card tables, all
going full blast. There being solo
games, cribbage, and we noticed
some close games being played on
the checker board. For the entertainment of those not indulging in
any of the games, a troup of vocal
and musical artists made merry ou
an elevated stage. The. Hading
musician, who answers to tbe name
of Napier, was a wizard at the
piano. The vocalists., who each
had to respond with encores, kept
up a pot pouri of songs and choruses, at a lively pace until the wee
sma' hours.
An-outstanding feature of the
evening, was the way the pro.
gramme ran along, without a hitch
or let-up. There was always some
thing doing, and no time to ask
what was coming next. The next
was on before the applause had
dieddown.
The inner man was well supplied
with good nourishment, by Messrs.
Murphy and Herbert with alive
committee, who must have practiced team work, so smoothly and
quietly did they administer the
hospitality. It was a grand nicht,
and well worth repeating.
Christ Church Xmas
Entertainment
The Annual Christmas Entertainment, in connection with
Christ Church Sunday Sohool,
was held on Wednesday, December
27th. The ohildren assembled at
4 p.m., and games were enjoyed,
until tea was served about 6 p.m.
After tea, a short programme was
rendered, iu which Olive Selfa
Kathleen Eve, and Maxwell Patrick took part.
When Santa Claus suddenly
made his appearance, all interest
was centered on him, and everyone was delighted to gaze upon his
weatherworn countenance once
more. He held the floor for the
remainder of the evening, distributing presents to all and sundry,
and when his pack was empty,
gracefully retired, wishing everyone a happy New Year.
The success of the entertainment
was largely due to the untiring
efforts of Mesdames Macknight,
Kelley, Selfe, Manzer, Rowley,
Rashleigh, Miss M. Macknight,
and Mr. W. J. E. Pamplin.
Elk* Christmas
Tree
Recent events in the theatripal
and mnsical world of the Smelter
town, and also those that afford
enjoytnent to the various residents,
who excel in the pastime^, of
"handlin' the foot," otherwise
called, "tripping the light fantas-
tio," have proved that anything
with a little flavor of Elk about it
is assured of success.
The Christmas Entertainment
held on Friday last, was no exception to the rule.* From the tirne
the first juvenile guests assembled,
until it was long past the hour
that all good children should be in
bed, there was not a dull minute.
The first part of the evening was
occupied with various games, and
Misses Kathleen and Irene Bruggy,
of Alice Arm, delighted the company with an excellent exhibition
of Highland dancing.
When the call to adjourn to the
spaoious dining room was sounded,
everyone responded with a will,
and did full justice to the things
provided, by chefs Jessop and
Foxley. After the needs of the
inner, man -had. been supplied,
games were resumed, until a radiogram was received from Santa,
stating that he would arrive in a
few minutes. The lights were immediately dimmed in consideration
of his advancing years, that he
might not be blinded by the glare,
and so miss some of the little tots
Then something unusual occurred.
Instead of leaving his reindeer
outside, he drove right into the
hall with his sleigh, pulling up
before the gaily decorated Christmas Tree, and handing his team
over to the care of Jack Sherman,
proceeded to distribute the presents.
The singing of Auld Lang Syne
brought the evening to a close.
The committee wish to thank
Mesdames B. Buck, W. Robertson,
and R. Armour, for their invaluable assistance, so willingly given
to, make the evening's enjoyment
a sucoees.
Logging Supplies Unloaded
The tng boat Esdud, left on
Tuesday for Vancouver, in charge
of the soow which brought in supplies for the Trethewey logging
camp last week. The scow was
unloaded on flats, on the. east side
of the Kitsault river, and construction work can now be carried on
more rapidly, now that the
necessary supplies and power are
available. A donkey engine has
pulled the old camp up into the
woods from the flats. The Alice
Arm Transfer Co. are working a
team at the scene of operations,
hauling timbers for, railway trestle
work, etc. Owing to the light
snow-fall this winter construction
work has been greatly expediated

Weekly Meeting of
Anyox Community
League Council
The regular weekly meeting of
the.Coniniunity League Council was
held in the Recreation Hall, on
January 3rd. Present: Seey-Treas.
Lowry, Councillors Rowley, Noel
and Sherman.
• On motion of Mr. Rowley the"
minutes of the previous were approved. Motion was seconded by
Mr. Noel.
The Secretary reported that the
watoh fobs which were forwarded
by Spalding Bros, were .not good
enough to pass out to senior ball
players, and that sweaters had
been substituted at the Xmas
dance, together with watch fobs
and tennis trophys.
It had been decided to build a
gallery in the new gymnasium and
this has been finished.
A crib tournament would be
started in the Rest Room, ou
Monday January 8th. and if sufficient entries were forthcoming a
whist tournament% would also be
started at the same time.
A report on the Xmas Dance and
Childrens' Xmas Entertainment
should be available by next Wednesday evening's meeting of the
Council. In connection with the
suggested alterations to the old bar
in the Recreation Hall, Mr. Selfe,
the manager, had pointed out the
inadvisability of this, and I would
ask the council to hear < what Mr.
Selfe has to say regarding the
matter.
Several replies have been . received in answer to our request for
applications for the position of
care-taker at the new gymnasium.
It was decided at a Special Meeting of the Council held in the Rest
Room last Friday evening, that the
new gymnasium would be opened
as soon after the 23rd. of January
as possible. \'.   ,
In connection with our open air
rink, the hoist is now in place, and
if we are. favored with some real
cold weather it will not be long
before there is skating on the flats.
The gymnasium is now being
washed and as soon as this is completed the painters will lay out the
floor. It is proposed to mark
courts for tennis, badminton and
basket-ball.
Two letters were read, one from
Tisdalls in regard to the purchase
of certain gymnasium equipment
which had been forwarded through
the Granby Stores. In this connection the Secretary explaned
how a considerable amount had
been saved on this particular order,
and on motion of Mr, Noel, which
was seconded by Mr. Sherman, the
action of the Secretary was endorsed. The other letter was from
Restmore Manufacturing Co. in a
reply to a request for a quotation
on the making of a mat for wrest-

Premier Mining Company
Declares Big Dividend
Declaration of a $750,000 divi
dend by the Premier Gold Mining
Co. has been announced. ' The
dividend amounts to I5c. per dollar,
share of the $5,000,000 capital, and
was paid on January 3.
This latest declaration will bring
the total paid to stockholders to
$3,150,000.
Canada's Pulp and
Paper Industry.
The world is now turning to
Canada for its increasing supply of
pulp and paper. This country is
only exceeded by the United
States in the production of these
two commodities, and in a few
years it will be the leading country
in the world. The question now
arises, is Canada to profit by the
experience of other countries, and
conserve her timber wealth for all
time, or is she going to devastate
her forests, with no thought of the
future? Minerals when taken
from the ground can never be replaced, but the timber wealth can
be made perpetual. There are
millions of acres of land in British
Columbia, suitable only for the
growing of timber, and it is the
duty of the government to see that
no young growing timber is wantonly destroyed during logging
operations, or at any other time.
It is for the present generation to
take steps to conserve the timber
wealth of the country before it is
too late.
Provide Work
for Immigrants.
A section of the press of the
country are advocating a strong
immigration policy, in spite of the
fact that the emigrants which arrived here during the past ten
years have left the country. Instead of the government flooding
Canada with immigrants unused to
the conditions of the country,, it
would be far better to try and hold
the people we already have.
Native born Canadians or persons
who have been in the country for
a few years are worth twice as
much as new arrivals. It is well
known that We import millions of
dollars worth of manufactured
goods that could just as well be
manufactured at home. We also
ship large quantities of raw material to other countries that are
reshipped to us in the manufactured
state after providing work for
foreign workers. A heavy tax
should be placed on all raw material exported, also a high tariff
on all manufactured goods entering
the country, infant industries
should be subsidized and encouraged by the government, good roads
built throughout the country, especially in the west, thus providing
more work and opening up new
country. We have a crushing
burden of taxation to bear, and
the more people that make their
permanent homes here, the lighter
will be the taxation per capita.
Alice Arm Citizens'
Association Meet
The regular monthly meeting of
the Alice Arm Citizens' Association
was held at the Anglican yhurch
Building, on Saturday evening,
December 30th, when a fair number
were present.
In the absence of President C. P.
Riel and Vice-President A. Falcon-
ner, the meeting waS presided over
by M. D. Ross.
Regarding the Kitsault River
bridge, a,letter was read from H.
P. Kergin M. L. A, saying, that he
was taking the matter up with
the Minister of Public Works, and
he would do his utmost to have
the bridge built.
Letters were also read from the
Anyox Service Association and
Rev. J. Herdman thanking the
people of Alice Arm for their contribution to the "'Poppy Day"
Fund, and especially thanking H.
Fowler for his work as supervisor.
It was the opinion of M. Peterson
that the Government Fisheries
Department be approached regarding stocking Clearwater Lake with
fish, and also the, head of Falls
Creek. After some discussion, a
motion was made by O. Flint seconded by M. Peterson that the
secretary write a letter to the fisheries Department regarding the
matter.
Discussion ensured regarding the
forwarding of ore. samples collected for exhibition at tht British
Columbia House, London, and a
motion was made by J. Fiva, seconded by G. Anderson, that the
Department of Mines be requested,,
to forward further information
regarding shipping of samples.
The matter of placing the Indian
Reserve on the market, so that
residents of the town could have a
piece of land they could call their
own, was raised by T. W. Falconer
who-pointed out that in his opinion
it was time something was done,
along these lines, if we were to
have a proper town here. It was
also the general opinion of the
meeting that the present unsatisfactory oondition should be ended
and after some discussion, a motion
was made by G. Matheson, seconded
by G. Bruggy, that the secretary
communicate with Hon. T. D. Pat-
ullo, Minister of Lands, H. F. Kergin
M. L. A, and F. Stork. M. P.,
regarding the matter.
Government Gifts
to Municipalities
During the past twelve months the
government of British Columbia has
contributed to the municipal treasuries
a sum equal to approximately $10 per
capita of the total population within
municipal boundaries, according to a
statement made by Hon. John Hart,'
minister of the finance.
The department of finance is sending
out cheques for a distribution of liquor
profits amounting to $511,537.80 and
of pari-inutuel tax amounting to
$191,647.26. Municipalities have received $201,654.86 as their proportion
of the revenue from motor licence fees.
With the distribution of liquor profits
now being made, the municipalities
have received from that source
$1,311,537.89.
'Grants for schools have amounted
to $1,056,275.95, and hospital grants
$356,074. A number of other payments
under various heads bring the aggregate amount handed over from the
provincial treasury to municipalities
within twelve months to $3,815,000.

Anyox Wins First
Hockey Game of Season
Continued from page 1.
Jpuck chasers were intent on scoring, and'exerted all their energies
|bb that purpose. Al. Falconer,
j Oatman and Anderson, set a dizzy
jpace, with their fast rushes, and
fkept Stubbs > continually on the
(jump. The fans went wild with
'excitement and yelled themselves
jhoarse, but all to no avail, and the
; brilliant team work of the home
' came to nought.
The smelter town stick handlers
'.also gave a/good exhibition of soin-
(tillating plays but failed to add to
their tally and the game closed in
[at whirlwind of excitement, with
j the score: Anyox 3, Alioe Arm 0.
\    This was the first 'friendly game
to   be  played   between   the   two
j teams this year, and a good clean
' game was the result.   The Anyox
Mine Club possess a good bunch of
players.    Anderson was the star
man for his team, and the manner
in which he carried the puck down
the    ice    was  a   pretty   sight.
Ployart, who played   for  Ariyqx
two years  ago,, was as good as
ever,   full  of  pep from start to
finish.    Dooley. Deane, the youthful  forward has   all   the appearances ©^developing into a brilliant
i player.   Wilson played a steady
I reliable game, and'Stubbs iu goal
\ always had a knack of getting iu
the way of the puck.      •
For the Alice Arm team, Al.
Falconer, Oatman and Anderson,
. played a dashing, spectacular
"game, and gave their opponents
no rest. They experienced the
hardest kind of luck in , not being
able to score.    T.   W. Falconer
played a good sound game on
defence, and Boss in goal left noth
ing to be desired. Gray gav^ a
good account of himself while on
the ice, and should develop into a
real useful player.

discussion over the matter, Mr.

In the matter of alterations to
the old bar, the Chairman asked
Mr. Selfe to state his reasons why
social card games would not be
desirable in Recreation Hall. Mr.
Selfe pointed out that the proper
supervision could not be had unless
extra help was obtained and that
the loss from cards, etc. would
hardly offset the revenue. Mr.
Noel agreed with Mr. Selfe, and
could not see where any revenue
worth while eould be obtained.
The matter was laid over for
future action by the Council.
For the position of caretaker at
the ne>v gymnasium, there were
six applications: Messrs Morgan,

Mr. Noel, that a special meeting of
the Council should be called for
Friday night. January 5th, to
which' the applicants should be
invited, when they could explain
their qualifications for the position.
It was decided to open the gymnasium formally on the evening of
February 8th. The entertainment
