LETTER TO THE
EDITOR
Alice Arm, B. C.
Dec. 12th, 1921
Dear Sir:
I have attended several meetings
here in Alice Arm, including the
one that was recently held for the
purpose of calling the attention of
the government to the needs of this
camp. Not being a public speaker
I should like to express my views
through your paper, with your kind
permission.
That the camp of Alice Arm is
a mining camp everyone is aware,
and that its life and existence
depends upon our mineral recourses
is a fact that no sane person will
deny. Yet this fact does not seem
to be grasped by the majority of
our citizens, whose efforts seem to
be directed towards things of a
minor importance, such as a road
to the Naas River or a cage or
bridge across the Kitsault River.
Now in my opinion, an automobile road to the Naas Valley
would be a nice thing to have, so
that when the nasty weather comes
we can crank up our car and joy
ride to the sunny Naas, and I
believe that in due time we will
get it. But our most urgent needs
should come first, not last, and we
must develop our mineral recourses
if we wish to see the town of Alice
Arm grow and prosper, and our
united efforts should be put forth
to attain this end.
People on the outside seem to
think that the Dolly Varden is the
only mine here that is even worth
while talking about, and right here
the Dolly Varden is discussed
(instead of cussed) whenever mines
or mining is the subject.
Now what are the facts.?
When the old Dolly Varden
Mining Company applied for a
right-of-way to build a railroad
from the Beach to the Wolf
Mine, we, the citizens of Alice
Arm asked the government not to
give this company a monopoly of
this railroad. The Dolly Varden
Company was made aware of this
request and agreed to make of this
road a common carrier. They
were given a specified time in
which to complete the railway to
the Wolf property and we were
Gossip
sent a wire from our member (the
late Mr. Mobley) that our rights
would be protected. That it was
the intention of the old company to
build the railway up to the Wolf
is testified by the fact that grading
was started and carried on fully
one mile beyond the Dolly Varden
Mine when the Taylor Engineering Company went broke, like
they have done in nearly all their
undertakings-a favorite method of
theirs apparently. The resulting
law suit and the outcome of the
notorious legislating is old history
and out of respect to your clean
little paper I will not quote it as I
consider it too obnoxious.
The extension of this railway is
of vital importance to everyone
interested here. Why is there no
pressure brought to bear to make
the Taylor Mining Company (first
cousin of the Taylor Engineering
Company) complete the railway to
the Wolf as we have a right to
demand.? Where are our rights
being respected.? Is it done for
the purpose of giving the Taylor
Mining Company a monopoly on
our most promising field, that lies
right at the end of the steel.? Do
you realize that the Toric, Tiger,
Musketeers and Moose properties
are practically helpless without
transportation, that if these properties were working we would have
a live camp here instead of a dead
one, that you and I could get work
here instead of petitioning the
government to build something, it
matters not what, so long as it
gives us employment.?
Do you think that the people
who bought the Musketeer group
and paid $65,000 for this property are waiting for the ore to
grow. ? We all know different.
It is up to us to use a little
common sense, it is not necessary
for us to humiliate ourselves if We
will but stand united and demand
what should be our just due, viz.
the road extended to the Wolf.
Because we live on the reserve
does not say that We are all
natives from Kincolith and can
be pacified with a totem pole.
OLD TIMER.
. The town of Stewart recently
experienced a-snowfall, oi nine feet,
all of which fell in three days.
The snowfall was followed by a
heavy rain which converted the
town into a sea of slush'.
The recent vote at 'Anyox was:'
The Beach, Peck 243; Stork 185.
The Mine, Peck 132: Stork 43.
Total majority for Peck, 147.
The Alice Arm vote was Peck 44:
Stork 46.
The total number of votes cast
at Anyox was 603 and the number
of votes cast at Alice Ann was 90.
A total of 693 votes for the two
towns.
The bill to limit the hours of
labor to eight in any one day in
certain industries in British Columbia, was recently defeated in the
Legislature by a vote of 24 to 15.
Bert Kergin, our local member
voted for the measure.

together with any others around
the town are practicing in preparation for a busy season. At the
boy's meeting the definite choosing
of teams was delayed until after
some practices was held. Offloers
were elected in readiness for the
beginning of the League: they are
President W. Martin; Vice-President Tom Bagwell; Secretary-
Treasurer Gawn Moffatt. Mr.
Dow who is in charge of the boys
and girls basketball is having
attendances of 35 boys and 20
gh'ls to the afternoon practices
which show that a big interest
is being taken. Dozens.of younger
ones are to be allowed the hall for
group games, so it would look as
though the three athletic days at
the hall are a success.
The girls have not yet organized
but are eagerly waiting the time
when they will be ready for league
games. Some of them are showing
first-class ability and will make
good players.
It lias not yet been definitely
decided just what hours 'will be
given to each sport; efforts are
being put forth to see that the
boys and girls get the three afternoons from 3.45 p.m. onwards, they
will then have the evenings at
home for their school work and
also the hall will be available for
