[Christmas Tree for the
Patients of Anyox Hospital
Those.who were inmates of the
[hospital on Xmas day were not
.allowed to let this day of days pass
unnoticed. Santa Claus in the
person of Harry Duby who is I
known to everyone as "Dad" was
there unloading a Xmas Tree
whioh bore a geneous crop of gifts.
' We met Santa on his way home.
He said he was tired, but they
certainly had a Merry Xmas at the
hospital.
Christmas Service at Anyox
Catholic Church
Midnight Mass Was celebrated
at the Cathpilc Churoh, Anyox, on
Christmas Eve. Rev. Father Fleck
conducted the Service, and the
singing was most impressive.
Mrs. E. Morning opened the
song Service with, "Adeste Fidelis"
Solos were also sung by Mrs. E.
Kinrade, "Kyrie." Mr. E. Morning
"Holy Night." The other singers
were Mr. and Mrs. McKinnon,
Messrs. Gordon and Stivenard.
On Thursday the tug Esdud,
arrived at Alioe Arm from Vancouver in oharge of the big soOw,
containing the Tretheway logging
camp. Capt. A. C. Good reported
a good trip up. They left Vancouver on the 21st and coaled at Union;
Bay. Twenty-four hours were
spent at Port Essingtou on account
of high winds blowing) in the
straits. The scow contains 2
donkey engines, one locomotive, 1|
miles of railway steel, railway log.
ging oars; about 50,000 feet of
lumber and general equipment for.
a logging camp.
The scow was taken aoross the
bay from the government wharf, on
Friday, by the Awake and landed
at her destination on the flats,
where, unloading operations were
quickly commenced.     '
Construction work at the, scene
of the logging operations is progressing rapidly, about 600 feet of
raihftiiy. trestle have already beeii
built, commencing from the edge
of the timber towards tide water.
About 300 more feet of trestle will
be built and the remaining part
will be constructed by driving
piles.
Now that the lumber has arrived
the work of constructing a permanent camp will be rushed with all
possible speed, and it is expected
that as soon as this is finished,
whioh will take about three weeks,
that about fifty. men will be employed, finishing the railway,
building, a logging wharf and
booming ground, and falling
timber. It has been decided to
make the logs into flat rafts, when
towing them to Ocean Falls,
instead of Davis rafts. It is understood that J. E. Trethewey has
acquired the timber standing on
the Indian Reserve, and should this
be the case, logging operations will
be carried on for a longer period
than was at first anticipated.
The New Year
Ring out the old, ring in the new,
Ring, happy bells across the snow;
The year is, going, let him go;
Ring out the false, ring in the true.
Ring out the grief that saps the mind,
For those that hear we see no more;
Ring out the feud of rich and poor.
Ring in redress to all mankind.
Ring out a slowly dying cause,
And ancient forms of party strife;
Ring in the nobler, modes of life,
With sweeter manners, purer laws,
.Ring out the want, the care, the sin,
The faithless coldness of the times;
Ring out, ring out my mournful
rhymes,
But ring the fuller minstrel in.
Ring out false pride in place of blood,
The civic slander and the spite;
Ring in the love of truth and right,
Ring in the common; love of good.
Ring out old shapes of foul disease;
Riug out the narrowing lust of gold;
Ring out the thousand wars of old,
Ring in the thousand years of peace.
Ring in the valiant man and free,
The larger heart, the kindlier hand;
Ring oiit.the, dullness of the land,

Big Dance Held at
New Mine Hall
On Wednesday evening, December 27th, the new Hall at the Mine
was formally opened with a grand
dance, given by the Mine Club.
Some two hundred were present,
many of whom came from the
Beach, and a most enjoyable time
was the verdict, as is usual with
anything the Mine Club under?
takes. .« .
The large spacious hall which
has just been built by the Community League, was beautifully
decorated by a committee, unjder
the direction of Mr. Billy Legge.
Mr. Tom Mnrphy, secretary of
the Club, met the arriving guests
at the door, with th<* glad hand.
Mr. Ed. Blundell, who has a
reputation as a caterer, served-a
supper, whioh Ed. has never
excelled.
Mr. T. J' Kirkwood, president of
the club, was about with a smile
for everybody. The music, which
was of a; very high standard, was
rendered by a 5-pieoe orohestra,
composed of J, Liddel, violin, J.

remembered.
A lengthy programme constituted
the entertainment. The choruses

feature also was the dancing of the
Highland Fling by the pupils of
Mrs. J. Laidlaw, who deserves
great credit for the excellent
training given  the    girls.     The

and Steve Dumas were the hosts.
Just enough people Were present to
make it comfortable for dancing,
whioh was carried op until 1 a.m.
Refreshments were served by the
ladies during-the evening. Louis
Reynolds, who acted as floor man
ager, filled the bill in a very able
manner, and kept things moving at
a lively clip throughout the evening.
Anyox Community
League Xmas Tree
Anyox certainly does itself grand
in celebrating Xmas. The Community League held a feast for all
the kiddies in town. The Recreation Hall ou Wesnesday Dec, 20,
was a scene of a very jolly time for
the young guests and their grown
ups, and a very busy time for
several ladies and gentlemen who
very kindly donated their energies
to entertaining the throng. High
jinks was kept up all afternoon and
evening, and by about 8 p.m. the
pace was beginning to tell on some
of the young toddlets, who began
to'succumb to the influence of the
sand man. It was then time to
depart but there was so much cheer
to be distributed, that some of it
had to be taken home iu sacks.
These sacks containing, candy,
fruit, nuts etc. were handed out
one to eaoh youngster as they left
the hall. The A. C. L. Xmas party
will long be; remembered by the
rising generation.

should be enough traffic between

What the Future Holds
For Us.
Before  another issue   of   the
Herald has been published, we
we shall have entered upon another year.   The past few years have
witnessed some great changes, and
also a unparalled business depression, but it now   seems   that  the
world is beginning to recover from
the war wounds it inflicted upon
itself, and that the numerous conferences held by the late warring
nations in order to bring order out
of chaos, is beginning to bear fruit.
The new year upon which we are
now entering will undoubtedly be
far brighter and conditions more
settled than during the past four
years.   We have been exceptionally fortunate in this district during
the past year, and the chief cause
of  our prosperity is due to   the
uninterrupted operation of the big
mining and smelting plant of the
Granby Co. at Anyox.   It is one
of the very few copper smelters on
the American continent that has
operated continuously since the close
of the late war.    It would have
been a serious blow to the whole
of thenorthern B. C. coast district
if the plant had suspended operations, and the management are to
be congratulated on their splendid
achievement in face of enormous
handicaps.     Alice Arm,   which
lies about 17 miles farther up  the
inlet from Anyox has experienced
rather a quiet year in regard to
mining, but this inactivity has been
due solely to litigation tying up the
Dolly Varden and Wolf properties, and also the Dolly Varden
Railway, which is the only means
of transportation up the Kitsault
Valley.   This litigation, however
now seems to be practically settled
and it. is expected that   definite
word will shortly be received that
the new company   will   operate
these properties early in the  new
year.   With the railway again in
operation, so that cheap transportation is assured, numerous other
companies will enter this promising
field, and Alice Arm will forge
ahead from which there will be no
turning   back,    In   addition   to
mining operations for 1923, logging
camps employing at least fifty men
will be operated right on the outskirts of the town.    Alice Arm
need not fear the future, for the
town is bound to grow.   A person
in'
might as well try to stop the
coming tide, as to stop the growth
of this fair little town. The
mineral wealth is here, and it will
be extracted, if the mining
companies entering the field are
given encouragement by the present
holders of properties. Let us all
pull together for the welfare of the
camp, at all times during the
coming year, and if we do, the
results may be surprising. It is
always a good thing to remember,
that, "Unity is Strength,"
Omineca District Receives
Big Govt. Appropriation
The Om|neca district has been
allotted the sum of $77,000 as
roads appropriation from the
government for next year. This is
the largest grant for any one
district in the province and much
satisfaction is expressed at the
efiorts of Hon. A. M. Manson, the
member for Omineca, in this
direction.
Mineral Wealth of British
Columbia Increasing
The value of the mineral output
in British Columbia for 1922, is
estimated to be $32,167,463, as
compared with $28,066,641 the
previous year, according to an
announcement made by Hon. W.
Sloan. Gold and silver production
increased, the formeTvtmounting to
$4,116,816, and the latter $4,034,-

Losses of Canadian
National Railways
The published statement of Sir
Henry Thornton, the new president
of the Canadian National Railways, gives every impression that
he is a sound business man and a
capable railway executive. He
gives the positive and complete
assurance that he is not going to
be interfered with by political
considerations. In taking up the
gigantic problems of these 22,-
000 miles of government owned
lines, we think that he will have
the complete support of the entire
public of Canada.. Some measure
of the problem may be gauged
from the fact that in the operations for the last fiscal year ending
March 31st, 1922, the System lost
on operation $11,720,384 and taking into consideration fixed charges
being interest on outstanding
bonds, the loss was $72,662,278
and it must be stated that this
was the best experience these
systems have had since being
taken over by the government.—B.
C. Financial Times.
The British Empire Steel Corporation has now blocked out ore
reserves amounting to 2,600,000,-
000 tons of ore, runniug 42 to 52
per oent. metallic, the largest ore
reserve in the world, and twice the
holding of the United States Steel
Corporation. These enormous ore
reserves were developed from a
little outcrop on Belle Isle, and
shows what can be done with
proper government assistance.

Anyox Band Plays
at Smelter Mess
On Christmas Day, the boys who
dine at the Smelter Mess House,
had a Christmas . dinner that
would be hard to beat. Chef Al.
Kobloth put up a dinner, including
turkey, plum pudding, mince pie,
and all-other accompaniments, to
which everyone did justice, winding up with Havanas.
To give the dinner a real festive
atmosphere, the Anyox Brass
Band of 17 pieces rendered a
musical programme from 12 to 1,
which was greatly appreciated by
the boys. Bandmaster Barnes and
his colleagues do this just because
they love it, and want to make
life just as pleasant as they can for
everyone. They will play at the
Mine Mess House on New Year's
Day.   Good old band!

Eaoh one received a suitable gift,

Fort Norman Oil Well
is Still Producing
Reports from Fort Norman,
where drilling has been going on
ever since the first indications of
oil in that region, reveal that the
early winter has not checked these
activities in that territory. The
original well at Fort Norman of
the Imperial Oil Company is still
producing seventy barrels a day
and this fluid is found of great
value locally.
The newspaper is a great organization. Its success, its existence
depends on the appreciation and
good will of the public. If the
public supports a paper devoted to
the well-being of the community,
that devotion will continue.
For the past two years, says a return
issued by the Bureau of statistics, the
province of Alberta has held the premier position among the coal
producing provinces of Canada, with
Nova Scotia, the former leader, a close
second, and British Columbia third,
with Saskatchewan and New Brunswick following iu order.

Someone said the other night,
When he tried to skate by lantern

That it was just about time the

starting another term. In other
words, the debaters are debating as
to how they should debate.
After the Christmas experience,
we all know just what to do at
New Year.
