Alice Arm to Have
Light and Power
Company Being Formed and
Work To Start
A project that has been talked
about for several years has now
matured. Alice Arm is to have
an electric light and power plant.
A company has already been formed, and construction work is to
start immediately.
The name of the company is the
Alice Arm Hydro-Electric Company. It was organized by shareholders of the Esperanza Mine
Syndicate, and a certain amount
of the stock will be for sale to the
public of Anyox and Alice Arm.
The water of Falls Creek will be
■ utilized for supplying the power.
A power house will be constructed
near the Dolly Varden railway
tracks at a poirft about 400 feet
south of the bridge. A pipe line
1000 feet in length will connect the
• power house with the creek.
Mr. E. R. Workman, whoinstall-
% ad the plant for the ' International
Electric Co. of Stewart and Hyder,
„nd who is one of the directors,
was in Alice Arm during the week,
having been invited by the pro-
motors of Alice Arm Co. to look
over the ground here in connection
with the installation and successful operation of the plant.
In an interview with the Herald
Mr. Workman was confident that
a light and power plant could be
successfully operated here; The
rates would be low enough to
make it possible for everyone to
use electric light and power, instead of the old-fashioned method
now in vogue.
He said that the International
Co. of Stewart and Hyder was
operating very successfully, and was
now paying a dividend of 30 per
cent. Praotioally everyone in the
two towns were using the light
and power, .and it was also supplied to the lower terminals of the
tramway of the Premier Co.
In regard to public subscription
to the company Mr. Workman
said that in order to take care of
the expense of the installation, a
oertain amount of stock would be
offered to the people of Alice Arm
and Anyox. In this connection,
however, he was pleased to say
that they had secured nearly all
the capital they required at Anyox.
As soon as the plant is operating
these shares will be bought in by
the promotors, if anyone   wishes
to sell.
Contracts will shortly be let
for the digging of pipe line ditch
and erection of poles and the plant
will be installed as quickly as
nossible. In addition to light and
power for the town, the Esperanza
Mine will also use the power.
The plant will consist of a 2200
volt alternating current system,
and everything possible will be
done during installation to ensure
against any breakdown of the
'   plant during operation.
Mine Club Spend Jolly
Time On Tuesday
Keen competition again featured
the card oontest up on the hill,
when the Mine Club entertained at
their third card party on Tuesday.
This time the gathering assembled
in, the club rooms, whioh was
crowded to the doors. Following'!
supper, the guests adjourned to
tlie Mine Hall, where dancing
rounded off the evening voted by
all as the jolliest little time imaginable There were many visitors
from the beach. Prize winners
were Mrs. J. A. Swanson. Mrs.
Thos. Jones, Archie McDonald and
K. O. Peterson. Booby honors fell
to Miss Florence Swanson and
San Murray for bridge, and to
Mrs. Deane and C. A. Allen for
whist. Cards will again collect a
crowd on Tuesday December 16th.
Meanwhile, no less than six boxing
contests will feature a huge
smokor being prepared by the boys
for December 4th., and on the 9th.
a delectable decoction with sparkling ingredients is ■ to be served
when the "Black and White"
dance to music by the Elks' orchestra will be the magnet. The
Mine£!lub is much in the limelight
Kitsault Flats May Be
Converted Into Agricultural Land
When logging operations were
first undertaken in Alice Arm by
Mr. J. O. Trethewey, it waB the
intention to clear the logged off
land', break it up into small plots,
and place them on the market for
agricultural purposes.
Questioned by the Herald during the week regarding this plan,
Mr. Trethewey stated that it depended entirely on the growth of
the town. If the future growth of
the town warranted it he would no
doubt clear the land aud put it on
the market.  •
As there is no doubt about the
future of Alice Arm, we shall
probably in a few years, see the
vast Kitsault flats under cultivation-, dotted with comfortable
homes, surrounded by gardens of
luscious fruits and vegetables, and
herds of dairy cows in the pasture,
where now it is a waste of stumps
and brush.
Alice Arm has a future, so bright
as to dazzle one's eyesight if they
peep too close into the future.
Anyox Couple Married
Last Saturday
A very pretty wedding was
solemnized at the Catholic Church
on Saturday, November 22nd. at 9
p.m. When Miss Rose Pomeri,
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Pomeri,
of this city, became the bride of
Mr. Dan Sorrenti, also of Anyox.
Rev. Father Fleck officiated, The
bride looked charming in a pondre
blue georgette dress, brown hat
and shoes to match. Mr. Richard
Magaton acted as best man. Mrs.
A. Campanilla supported the bride.
Immediately after the ceremony
the happy couple repaired to the
home of the Bride, where the wedding breakfast was served. Mr
and Mrs D. Sorrenti will make
their future home here.
Big Sum Collected For
Christmas Tree
Up to the present time the sum
of $195.65 has been collected for
the Alice Arm Christmas Tree and
entertainment, and a few more
dollars have beeji promised.
Training the children for their
different acts is now well under
way, and this year's entertainment
promises to be a big one.
The Anyox Lodge of the B. P.
O. Elks, as it well known, are past-
masters in the art of producing a
high grade entertainment. On
Monday evening they excelled
themselves, when they gave the
people of the town two and a half
hours of side-splitting fun.

Alice Arm'Logging
Continues Brisk
Two booms of logs arrived in
the bay during the week from
down the iulet.
Messrs. H. Carney P. Erickson
and Gilbert Gilbertson brought
in 105,000 feet.
Messrs. Vic Johnson, Pete Johnson and Nord Bros, brought in
119,000 feet.
Both booms were bought by Mr.
J. O' Trethewey.
It is expected that Eric Carlson
will conclude operations about the
15th. of December. There is now
one million feet to be hauled to
the water.
These logs are at a point near
the camp of the Granby Co, The

Anyox Shipping Notes
The scow "Griffith" is loaded
with tar, and will probably be
taken south by the "Griffco" which
is now in port unloading her
Anyox cargo.
The larger Grand Trunk
steamers have now resumed their
regular winter schedule, Arriving
here from Stewart Thnrsday's at
6 p.m. and leaving at 11 .p.m.
This schedule commenced last
week. The Venture is still making a regular run ariving here on,
Friday, and this service is expected to continue as far as at present
known, which means that we will
continue to have three boats per
week in and out of Anyox regularly.

Anyox Elks Stage
Big Evening's
Local Artists Prove To Be
Splendid Entertainers
Before a packed house in the
Recreation Hall, on Monday evening, the Elks' Vaudeville troupe
put on their second performance
of the year, when a spicy and well
balanced programme met with the
hearty approval of those present.
Ed. Craggs, in tuneful melodies,
was the opening act, and delighted
the audience with two nicely rendered numbers.
The next act was clever novelty
danoing by the popular Bruggy
sisters of Alice Arm, and the perfect footwork of the intricate
dances, and the precise time kept
by the little tots was a revealation
to all those who never had the
pleasure of seeing them before.
They danced the Sword Dance,
Highland Fling aud a Chinese
Dance. They were accompanied
by Miss Virginia Riel, piano, and
Mr. Chas. Hutchinson, clarinet.
The turn, billed as a question
mark, turned out to be highly
amusing, everyone receiving the
worst of it, except Vic Cruikshank.
Those taking part in the "Question
Mark," were: Harry Chapman,
J. Goertsen, Art. Nickerson, H.
StClair, and Vic Cruikshank.
Mart and Pep, in "A New
Frame," kept the crowd in paroxisms of laughter during their
entire stay of twenty-five minutes
on the stage.
Owen and Evans, who were on
the bill as a "Welsh Rarebit,"
were unable to appear owing to
illness, But Miss Kathleen
Bruggy tilled in with a nicely
executed Chinese Dance.
Last on the programme, but not
least, was a three-act comedy skit,
"Parker's Wedding," with Vio
Cruikshank in the leading role as
Parker, supported by Mrs. R. Watson, as Fanny Lamb. Others in
the cast, were: Miss Gladys
Rashleigh, Messrs. M. Cranley, C.
A. Gray, H. B. Chapman, H
StClair and Art Nickerson.
The whole performance - was
splendidly produced and great
credit is due to all those who took
During the intermissions, the
Elks' orchestra, augmented by Mr.
Chas. Hutchinson, bf Alice Arm,
kept the audience in good spirits.
At the conclusion of the entertainment, a banquet was given in
the Dugout, by the Elks' Lodge,
to all those who took part in the
entertainment. Speeches were
made and Misses Kathleen and
Irene Bruggy sang a duet.
Exalted Ruler E. J. Waterman
expressed thanks on behalf of the
Lodge to all the members who had
worked so hard to make the e veiling such a wonderful success. All
the speakers were loud in their
praise of the excellent dancing of
the Bruggy sisters. ALICE   ARM   AND   ANYOX   HERALD,   Saturdny,   Kov.tiiImt   29.   1021
World Uses Enormous
Amount Of Copper
Where It Is Used And Why
Consumption Should
By P. II. Mason
With the object of giving pour-
age to copper producers during the
prolonged period of low prices, the
Brass and Copper Research Association has issued a statement showing the immense amount of copper
that is used in some basic industries. I'll us, for example the tele
graph aud telephone systems of
the world have used 1,300,000.000
pounds of copper and annually are
adding to that immense amount
some 2.00,000,000 pounds. The
system of the United States alone
have used 800,000,000 pounds.
The world is girdled by 20,000,000
pounds of copper wire in submarine cables. The United States
street railway have employed 685,-
000,000 pounds of copper; a ten-
car sul.)way train contains 40,000
pounds of copper and an ordinary
street car 2500 pounds. About
100,000,000 pounds of copper
annually goes into the manufacture of journal boxes for tlie freight
and passenger cars of steam railway trains and tlie so-called iron
horse contains on an average
about a ton and a half- of copper.
With such an enormous annua]
consumption it does not seem likely
that the present depression in the
copper market can last a great
deal longer, and tlie association is
looking forward to a brighter outlook in the near future.
An extraordinary encouraging
sign is that contractors, at last,
are beginning to appreciate the advantage of brass and copper, particularly for water and waste pipes,
in the construction of buildings.
Such pipes do not choke, as iron j
pipes do, and when once laid, there
is little likelihood of their t.er
having to be relaid. Louis J.
Horowitz, a contractor who has
erected some of the largest skyscrapers iii New York, said recently: "In construction, where labor
is the big element of cost and
and where the difference' in the
cost of material is slight, there can
be no greater folly than in using
inferior material, to wear out iii
five to a dozen years, when copper
would last practically for ever.
Copper producers, copper metallurgists and technical journalists
have been dinning this fact into
contractors ears for more than.a
decade, and the reiteration is only
just beginning to take effect. If
contractors and manufacturers
could be made to realize the lasting qualities of iron which,
metaphorically speaking, is here
today and gone tomorrow, it may
be stated without peradventure
that the copper output could be
doubled and that the demand
still would be brisk.

Stewart Prospectors >
Make Overland Trip
To Gold Diggings
Mr. D. McLaughlin mining man
of Seattle, who has just returned
from the new gold strike, in the
Cassiar. stated that the day before
he left Telegraph Creek, two old
sourdough prospectors. Porter and
McDermott, arrived there from
Stewart, B. C„ euroule to the new
diggings. They had crossed the
mountains over a stretch of rough
country having neither roads nor
trails, and had been 26 days in
making the trip. They carried
their rifles and light packs and
lived.off the wild country through
which they traveled. They arrived in Telegraph creek in the the
pink of condition.

Large Meteor Falls In
An awe-inspiring sight was witnessed recently by a work crew
stationed at Sutton, wheji a large
meteor, aflame and glowing like a
skyrocket at night, soared across
the skyline and apparently fell on
the top of a mountain some- miles
distant, says the Anchorage Alaskan.
According to reliable telephone
reports to the Anchorage Alaskan
it was stated that the meteor came
down in a southeasterly direction
and was plainly visible for fully
one minute. It is planned by a
number of the crew to go into the
hills and make an attempt to locate
the meteor for, according to general belief it did not fall many
miles away.
It was further stated that the
meteor lighted a fiery path across
the heavens, and that a foreign
noise was plainly heard by all and
that a slight shock was felt about
the time the meteor would have
collided with the earth.

•nd that is the term Canadian Pacific officials are
applying to the company's lines between Montreal
, and Toronto and to many other stretches of Canadian Pacific track in various parts of Canada. ,
'    It is rock-ballasting that is the final touch in
modern railroad track construction, and in rock-bal-
| lasting this particular stretch of main line three to
: four hundred men have been engaged for the past
! four years. The Montreal-Toronto line is an important one. The traffic rolling over it grows heavier
year by year, and when rock ballasting was first
1 contemplated the need for heavier steel was foreseen. Thus, before anything else could be done,
the existing rails had to be taken up and replaced
i by those weighing one hundred pounds to the yard.
Then, before the actual rock-ballasting began, this
three hundred odd miles of traok had to be pro-
Tided with special draining facilities which called
for many miles of tiling, after which the big Job
First of all, it was necessary to find th* right kind of
r*!k for the work. Any rock would not do. After many
tests a quarry was found, at Deeks, Ontario, which
yielded hard lime-stone or dolomite, and it took thirty-
e thousand car-loadi
of this to complete
the work, in actual
weight well over
two million tons.
The actual placing of the ballast
was a big under*
taking. The old
ballast had first
to be removed.
For that purpose
a "spreader" went
over it digging out
the earth and gravel on
either side of the track
down to the level of th*
bottom of the ties. A gang
of men followed to shovel out
the gravel between the ties and
then came car-loads of new stone ballast, already
screened and graded as to size, to be dumped in
the corner of the track. The gang that followed
raised the track four or five inches and tamped th*
Stone solidly underneath every tie. That war the
first lift and then followed other car loads of stone
and another gang gave the track another lift and
again tamped the stone underneath, so that every
tie had a good eight inches of stone between it and
the olay bed of the track. More stone followed and
then came the trimming and surfacing gang and the
job was finished.
All the time this work was going on many paasen-
gera and freight trains were passing over the line
every day. Their running was not interfered with
in the slightest degree, a fact which greatly com*
plicated the matter in hand, notwithstanding #hlch
it was finished to the entire satisfaction of the Company's officers, which is to say that the construction
now completed if typical of the most recent develop*
ments In high grade passenger track construction*

A twenty per cent increase in the
business over the Dominion Atlantic Railway, serving Nova Scotia,
was the approximate summary of
the summer's travel recently given
by F. G. J. Comeau, General Traffic Agent of the line. This is attributable to the growing appreciation
of the beauties of the Annapolis
Valley and the charm of the Evangeline county among tourists everywhere.
An extensive programme is being
prepared in connection with tne
winter sports activities of the Chateau Frontenac, the Canadian Pacific Railway's famous hotel at Quebec. E. Des Baillets, newly appointed sports director for the hotel, is
planning the formation of the Frontenac Winter Club and the holding
of competitions in curling, ski-ing,
ski-joring, skating and other pastimes of the season.
Surprise packets in the shape of
crates containing two lions, a male
cub and a full grown female, constituted the most interesting shipment
handled by the Montreal and Toronto offices of the Dominion Express Co. this year. The animals,
exchanged for specimens of Canadian deer, recently arrived from
Dublin and were dispatched over
Canadian Pacific lines to their destination, the zoological gardens at
Toronto. Needless to say, they were
carefully handled.

Russia will never again rival Canada as a wheat exporter, according to L. W. Lyde, Professor of
Geography at London (England)
University. He believes that grain
growing in future lies with the
Canadian farmer. Russia cannot
properly supply its own needs. Prewar export of wheat was purely artificial, drawn, not from a natural
surplus, but from the needs of a
very poor and ignorant peasantry.

American National Parts need no
introduction to the world of motor-
dom. Every mile of roadway, especially through the Canadian Parks
where it has, in many places, been
cut out of solid rock and at stupendous cost, has been built, with an eye
to easy travelling and scenic grandeur, and from early spring until
late in the fall a continuous stream
of automobiles bearing licences
issued in every town on the continent, pour along the highway. Nowhere else, can the motorist obtain
•uch a long run through such ever
changing scenes of natural beauty.
During tbe past few years it has
become quite the thing to motoi
through vacation time, and those whr
choose this way of holidaying are
unanimous In their choice of a "hunting ground." British Columbia and
the rockles are not the things to be
"done," because having travelled
through them once means never to

Ne less attractive on acount of Its
good roads, scenic properties and
tourist accommodation Is Vancouver
Island. The city of Victoria at the

the scenic routes of the mainland
would still enjoy the pleasures of
the road without travelling the same
road again, and those who are attracted to the island by its particular
type of beauty which is after the
English style with "just enough of
the tropics thrown in."
The passage to the Island is
usually made by ferry from Vancouver, or Bellingham In the State
of Washington to Victoria or one of
the west coast ports nearby. The
Canadian Pacific Railway Company
has this year put into service a new
automobile ferry, the "Motor Princess," a motor driven vessel which
operates between Bellingham and
Victoria .and which, with a capacity
for fifty automobiles and well appointed accommodation for 250
passengers, plies twice dally.
The route traversed by the ferry
is marked by Islands, some of which
tire miles in extent, others gem like
islets thrusting up from smiling
seas, making the waterway a succession of pictures to which the most
famous of salon hangings cannot
compare. The lordly Mount Baker
is also seen from the ferry to advantage, standing as it does In a

Backward or Forward
The fact that Alice Arm is to
have an electric light and power
plant will be hailed with delight by
the people of the town. With
the installation of a power plant
we shall have made a considerable
advance. Every small town now
has electric light and it is up to
Alice Arm to keep pace with the
times. At the present time we
have a population large enough to
maintain such a plant, and who
dares to say that Alice Arm will
not be more prosperous in the
future than in the past. It is time
we commenced building an up-to-
date town instead of a bunch of
buildings scattered around the flats,
and the installation of an electric
light and power plant is the first
step in this direction. Later on,
if we persevere, we may have a
nicely laid out town, with well
made and lighted streets. We
have to go forward or backward.
Let's go forward.
Give Them The Lash
The lash for the peddlers of
narcotic drugs is the medicine to
be meted out to these persons in
the future, when found guilty.
This course has been decided
upon by the government of the
province, and the measure received the united support of all members of the Legislature. The drug
habit in this province is assuming
alarming proportions, and it is time
it was stamped out. Give the
dope peddlers the lash and give
them all they can stand up under.
The kid glove method of handling
there inhuman wretches has proved
a failure. Perhaps the administration of the lash will solve the
problem of stamping out the
canker that if left untouched will
ultimately destroy our civilization.
Another type of humanity
who should get acquainted with
the lash is the man who will hold
up persons on the street at the
point of a gun. These men have
absolutely no regard for human
life, or the suffering caused by the
widow and little children of the
man whom they have killed to obtain a few paltry dollars Give
these back-alley prowlers the lash
also, and their courage will soon
vanish. In Great Britain it has
been proved that the lash is the
most affective weapon the law
psosesses in dealing with these
cases, and that is why hold-ups in
the big cities are now practically
While advertising has helped
millions of farm homes to greater
efficiency, it has also raised the
standards of business. It is the
word of the house to the customer.
Manufacturers and distributors
realize that readers must receive
exactly what is promised in advertised products. No man of experience will put his name or
brand on inferior articles because
it is plain business suicide to advertise an unworthy product. Hundreds of successful businesses have
grown from a good idea, nurtured
with advertising. Advertising
attracts new customers, broadens
the market and quality brings repeat orders. That is why advertising flourishes.
The ability of the bulldog to
hold on is his main asset in combat. Advertisers need some of
his tenacity to keep their bussiness
at an even keel. Continuity in
advertising is the manufacturer's
best grip. It has never failed in
the fight for existence.

When it is possible to buy a
few acres of' agricultural land on
the Kitsault flats, what a splendid
opportunity for our business men
to spend the weekend on the
ranch away from their business
cares and the strenuous city life.
It seems very probable that a
considerable force of men will be
employed at the Esperanza Mine
this winter if present plans are
carried out. The new power plant
will also be installed immediately
and other work will probably be
undertaken before the snow is off
the ground.

Last Sunday the Granby Co
inaugurated the policy found
necessary under the present conditions, of laying off all men not
necessary to continue uninterrupted operations of the plant. This
results in some two hundred and
fifty men being taken off the pay
roll every Sunday. • Although this
marks a disadvantage to some, it
is felt by the majority as a well
earned rest from the daily grind.
Mr. Wm. Rudland, formerly employed in the sintering plant, has
gone to Maple Bay and will take
up the duties of clerk there in
place of Alex. N. Davie, who is
leaving the employ of the Company.
Mr. Richard Mann of the
General Office staff severed his
connections with the Granby Co.
and left for Vancouver on the
"Cardena" last Monday.
Jaok Dillion is leaving on a
short holiday early in Decomber.
He will return to Anyox within
the course of a month or two,
when he will be with us for a short
time before leaving permanently.
Many friends in Anyox will regret
to lose his congenial personality
which he freely displays both on
and off the job. Jack is one of our
old time friends and we certainly
hate to see him go. Among other
things lie was always the keenest
of sports, and those of us who have
known him iii that phase will feel
his absence greatly. Mr. J Stroud
will occupy the position of assistant Smelter Superintendent, and
Mr. Geo. Lee will step into the
position vacated by Jack Dillon.

What Canadians Spend
On Motor Cars
Last year the people of Canada
spent for motors over $92,000,000.
This amount is based on figures
collected by the Dominion bureau
of statistics. The amount given
was spent for cars and parts alone.
No estimate is available of what
was spent by Canadian motorists
in other ways.
A car owner spends money for license tax, gasoline, oil, garage,
buildings, repairs, chaffeur's wages,
hotel bills. It might be supposed
that $200 a year is a low estimate
of an amount spent by the average
motorist during the year.
In 1923 the registered number
of motorists in Canada was 585,-
079. If each motorist spent only
$200, the total would be $117,015.-
800 spent in a year. Altogether
the people of Canada may be said
to have spent last year for motors
and motoring at least $209,015,800.
"Yes," said Mrs. O'Hallagan,
"it was 2 o'clock the following

morning, you'll have to get up
and let yourself in!."
