Anyox Moose Lodge
Hold Monthly Smoker
On Friday, February 1st the
Moose held their Monthly Smoker
at their headquarters, the Catholio
Hall, and it was conoeded by all
present to be the best given by the
order. The Hall was packed and
after a splendid^epast, the audience
settled down to a well varied programme. There was Community
Singing by the company, to which
Bev. J. Herdman contributed largely
with slides on his Stereopticon, foi
lowed by songs by that popular
Anyox singer, Mr. C. Hegarty. A
new artist, -Mr. Alfred Williams,
gave one of his own compositions,
and received loud applause. Mr.
J. Hay contributed "Asleep in the
Deep, in fine form. The Moose
orchestra gave selections. Mr.
Frank Bice told funny stories.
Mr. Jimmy Varnes sang "He Did,"
(and no one contradicted him.)
Mr. H. B. Dresser at the piano,
and Mr. George Liddell with his
violin played selections, and we
wondered whether wo were at the
Orpheum instead of Anyox. Piper
McLennan supplied the martial
strains. Messrs. Webster and
Haesler acted as accompanists.
The committee consisted of
Messrs. Hart, Simpson, Cross,
Dodds, and the Secretary, who
specially wish to thank the following ladies for their contributions
to the Commissiariat; Mesdames
D. Lavery. E. B. Armstrong, J. T.
Wilkinson, N. Bloom, F. Cross,
S. Spragg, J. Hart, Jv Zitko, J.
Varnes, and also to Mr. B. Clayton.
A Hundred Cords of
Wood Lost
Mr. Walter McDonald and partners, who have been cutting cord-
wood by contract for the Granby
Co. had a serious misfortune during
the week, when 100 cords of wood,
which was piled on the beaoh, was
lost on a high tide. In addition to
the cordwood, a bunch of logs, containing about 40,000 feet b. in,
were also lost.
The oause of the loss was due to
the fact that the tide was considerably higher than the figures given
in the tide book. This fact has
been noted several times during the
winter and is probably due to high
winds on the ocean.
Logging Again Starts at
Alice Arm
Logging operations were again
commenced this week at the camp
of the Abbotsford Logging Co. by
Mr. Eric Carlson, who has the contract for taking out the logs.
About ten men are at present
employed, and the work now being
done consists of pulling a number
of piles, thatare already yarded, into
the water. As soon a weather
conditions permit logging operations
will be carried on full Hast.
Alice Arm
Hockey
Married Men Again Win
In a thrilling 45-minute encoun-
ter. in which both teams churned
up the slush on Sunday last, at the
Skating Rink, the married men
again came out victors over the
singles by the comfortable margin
of 5 goals, the score being 8-3.
The game started with a burst
of speed by both teams, with the
singles scoring the first goal. Considerable time elapsed before the
married men could equalize, but
once they had coaxed the puck into
the net, goals came iu quick succession.
Some fine solo rushes were made
by C. Drennan for the singles, and
he was responsible for all goals
scored by his team.
T. W. Falconer and G. Anderson
of the married team played a good
game, and J. A, Stephen also made
his presence felt on several occasions.
Due to the poor condition of the
ice, real good hockey was impossible
and it is possible that should ideal'
conditions prevail when the next
game is called that the single men
will pull a surprize on their opponents.
The teams, including substitutes,
were: married, G. Bruggy, goal; J.
Morrison, T. W. Falconer, J. Hanna
J. A. Stephen, G. Anderson, E.
Moss. Single: S. Wickwire, goal;
A. D. Yorke, C. Drennan, J. Wilson. H. Butler, J. Fiva.
Granby Co. Will Shortly
The Granby Co. will commence
logging operations at Alice Arm in
about 10 or 14 days, it is understood. It is planned to commence
operations with a force of 25 men,
and the first work to be done will
be the building of a mile of railway
track on the Kitsault flats, which
will connect with the Abbotsford
Logging Company. The Granby
Co. will use the Dolly Varden railway for hauling, the logs to tidewater from their limits on the vest
bank of the Kitsault river.
Fatal Accident at Anyox
The tragic death occurred at
Anyox mine on Wednesday, of Mr.
P. Connelly.
Deceased was employed as brake-
man and met his through injuries
reoeived from being crushed by ore
cars on the 150-ft. level. Deceased
was only 23 years of age.
CONTRACT  LET  FOR
PILING
Mr. Walter MoDonald has secured the contract for cedar piles for
the Kitsault river bridge. He left
on Thursday, aocompanied by
Archie MoPhail, for down the inlet
where the piles will be cut.
MR. A. E. WARREN
Csnsral Manager, Western Region,
Canadian National Railways
Mr. Warren was  a  visitor  to
Prince Rupert last week in connection with the selection of a
site for a grain elevator.
Basketball At
Anyox
There were three games of
basketball at the Gymnasium, on
Friday evening. The first game
brought together the Bovers and
the Tuxis in an Intermediate
League fixture. The Tuxis boys
came through with their second
win this season by the score of 21
to 14.
The second game provided the
big surprise of the year, when the
High School sucoeeded in winning
from the Pats in a very close and
exciting game by 14 to 11. The
High School Girls seem to have
found their stride and should turn
in a few more wins before the
season is finished. This game went
ten minutes overtime.
The last game was also an Intermediate league game, the teams
taking part were the Coke Plant
and the Office. The latter winning
by the score of 24 to 19.
On Monday evening, only one
game took place, when the Coke
Plant defeated the Rovers 27 to 18,
iu one of the fastest games seen at
the Gym. this season.

Alice Arm
Mr. George Beaudin is going
ahead with the construction of
a new building on 1st. Street. The
building is 20 feet by 40 feet and

Snowdrops
A front page paragraph of a Vancouver paper announced last week that
snowdrops had shown above the
ground in that city. But perhaps
the people of Vancouver are not
aware that we have had snowdrops
in this district throughout the winter. One snowdrop here grew 4
feet in less than 24 hours, in fact
some grew so high we could hardly
see out of the windows, and if it
hadn't been for the raindrops we
would'nt haVe been able to see out
at all. Oh no, Vancouver people
do not have a monopoly on snowdrops.
Vancouver Smelter
Vancouver papers are now
boosting for a smelter, and if their
efforts are successful, they expect
that all ores mined from Alaska to
the United States along the coast
will find their way to Vancouver.
But again they fail to take into
consideration that a smelter is continuously in operation at Anyox,
and will make a bid for the northern trade.
Providing smelting charges are
equal, it is certain that Anyox will
continue to treat a large portion of
custom ore, and will make any
changes in their plant necessary to
meet requirements.
Ministers in any community are
leaders in solving moral and spiritual problems. Removed from the
conduct of commerce, they can see
moral distinctions a little clearer
than some of the rest of us.
The ministers are working only
for the good of the community.
When they say, "Lets do it," they
deserve to be supported by all progressive citizens who desire constructive advance.
The reason for most of the negligence on the part of public officials
rests with the habit of the people of
electing a man and then leaving it
Silver Largely Used in
Photography
A very considerable share of the
new silver produced from year to
year is now used for purposes other
than monetary. Some of it is lost
by abrasion, some of it passes to
the Orient and dissapears in the
"hoards" characteristic among the
people of that part of the world.
Much of it has been used for years
in tho manufacture of tableware,
ornaments and toilet articles, and
of late large quantities are utilized
in photography especially the
thousands of miles of motion picture films annually turned out in
the world. While the silver used
in tableware, ornaments and toilet
articles is looked upon as possibly
recoverable" in case it is needed
that used in photography and plating is not recoverable.
A recent statement by a high
authority puts the quantity of silver
now used in photography and silver
plating at from 10 to 20 million
ounces a year while from 20 to 30
million ounces are annually used in
the manufacture of tableware,
toilet articles, etc. Accepting the
higher of these figures it would appear tnat about one-fourth of the
world's silver production is now
used in the arts and industries, and
this is sustained by a recent report
of the'director of the U. S. Mint,
who places the world's industrial
consumption of silver in 1922 at
59,969,000 ounces, or 28 per cent of
the 1922 world outturn.
Big Deal in Indian Mine
Treasury Stock
McQuaig Bros. & Co. of Montreal, acting for a strong Montreal
and Toronto syndicate, have purchased 255,000 shares of Indian
Mines Corporation treasury stock.
While the price is not announced,
it is understood to have been around
65c. or 67c. the market quotation.
Tho purchase is evidence of the
fact that big things are expected of
this near shipping property.
all up to him, as to what he shall
do. If the various communities
were organized and would keep in
touch with their officials' they
would receive better service.
Ladies' Charter Loyal Order
of Moose Hold Jolly Dance
Following on their success of the
previous week the Moose Legionnaires held another popular dance
last Saturday night, after the
picture show, from 9 to 12 p.m.
There is no doubt that this idea
has caught the public fancy and
the Moose ladies are to be congratulated on their foresight.
On this occasion there was a
three-piece orchestra consisting bf
Mrs. Pynn (piano) Mr. C. McMillan
(violinist) and Mr. E, Waterman
(drums.) This trio certainly provide first-class music, and their
efforts were appreciated to the full
by all present.. The M.C.'s were
Mr. Frank D. Rice and Mr. W.
Simpson. The Committee in
charge consisted of Mrs. F. Cross
Mrs. J. Hart, Mrs. F. D. Rice,
Mr. F. V. Cross and Mr. J. Hart.
The whole affair was a groat
success and more in the nature of
a jolly party.
We understand the Moose ladies
will hold another dance tonight,
Saturday, at the Catholic Hall, at
9 p.m. prompt. Admission 50
cents. Ladies Free if accompanied
by gentleman.      , '.

Stewart Mining
News
Portland Canal News
High Grade Ore Struck on
Dunwell Property
One of the most momentus happenings in the history of the
Portland Canal district since the
striking of high grade ore in the
Premier mine, occurred last week
when the No. 3 tunnel of the
Pan well mine entered high grade
ore at a vertical depth of 300 feet,
and 500 feet on the dip of the vein
below the outcrop.
The striking of this ore has
established the continuity downward of a Bear River ore body and
undoubtedly it will have the same
effect iu stimulating development
in the Bear river scetion as the exploitation of the Premier ore bodies
did for Salmon river. /
Second Payment Made
Big Missouri
on
The payment due a few days
ago on the Big Missouri was made
on time, according to special telegraphic* advice to the News, dated
Seattle, January 15. %
The exact amount involved is
not known, but is of such a substantial nature as to prove conclu-
sivly that the work done on the
property by Messrs Trites & Wilson, warranted the big outlay of
capital that are known to have
made.
Wm. Bunting Wins Suit
The Court of Appeals in Victoria
has confirmed the judgement of Mr.
Justice Murphy, awarding to Wm.
Bunting a ten per cent commission
on the sale of the Unicorn group
to A. B. Trites by John Hovland
and Louis ^Vatkins. The bond
calls for a total payment of $120,000
so if all the payments are made
Bunting will come in for the tidy
sum of $12,000. P. C. Winkler,
owner of considerable mining property in the Salmon valley, and now
in Victoria is also drawing a commission on this deal, the vendors of
the Unicorn having recognized
his connection with making the
sale.
Emigrants For Canada
Vessels of 16 steamship lines will
assist in bringing to Canada this
year the greatest number of immigrants that have come to this
country since before the war, it
has been announced by Canadian
National Bailway officials at Winnipeg! The movement will commence by March 15, it is expected,
and seven steamship lines which
formerly called only at American
ports are making Halifax a regular
call on their westbound passages.
Immigrants will be carried direct
from Halifax to Western Canada
over Canadian National lines.
Silver Producers
The chief silver producing countries of the world are, stated in
their order of magnitude of production in 1922. Mexico, the United
States, Canada, Peru, Australia,
Bolivia, Germany, India, Japan
Spain and Chile.
The United States produced
almost two-thirds of the world output of petroleum last year, and
Mexico more than one-fifth, the:
Geological Survey reports.
World production was 854,889,-'
000 barrels, of whioh the United
States supplied 557,531,000 and
Mexico 182,278,000 barrels.

Large Increase in Motor
Vehicles
Attorney-General Manson has
issued a statement of figures relating to motor vehicles in British
Columbia, which shows the remarkable growth of the province in
this regard. Last year the minister stated there were 39,500 motor
licences issued, as compared with
6,688 in 1914, or an increase in ten
years of over 600 per cent.
According to a report recently
issued by the Dominion Bureau of
Statistics there are more telephones
in use in Canada per 100 of population than in any other country of
the world except the United States
and British Columbia's average is
higher than any other province in
the Dominion. Tha average number of users per 100 of population
in Canada is 10.53, while British
Columbia has 15.10 telephones per
100 persons.
Wm. Sloan arrived from Vancouver on the Prince Rupert yesterday, to take charge of
development on the Daly Alaska.
