Ice Carnival at
Alice Arm
Jolly Evening Spent in Racing, Dancing and Bean
Supper
What was undoubtedly one of
the most pleasant and entertaining
evenings ever enjoyed by the
people of Alice Arm, was last Saturday night, when the Men's
Hockey Club held an Ice Carnival
at the Skating Rink.
Almost the entire populace of
the town were there and a big
majority were shod with the steel
blades, ready to take part in the
races, of whioh there was a lengthy
programme.
Mr. Wm. Cummings was organizer and manager of the affair, and
great oredit is due to him for the
success of the entertainment.
The Carnival commenced with
a Grand Maroh, which was headed
by Piper Norman McLeod, who
made the air ring with the stirring
music of Scotland's national musical instrument.
Races were now commenced, and
everyone, from the tiny tots to the
speed artists, were given an opportunity to show their skill. The
promptness with which the races
were put on won the admiration of
all present. Some tine exhibitions
of speed were given by the contestants aud some very close finishes were witnessed.
Following the races, a bean
supper, consisting of the luscious,
lowly little bean, cooked to perfection by Mrs. W. M. Cummings,
and Mr. J. Fiva. was served,
togetuer with sandwiches aud hot
ooflee.
Before the last bean had fulfilled
its mission, an orchestra consisting
of Messrs. C. Hutchinson, J. Fiva,
and L. Johnson, were on the ice
vigorously playing a Fox Trot and
the enticing music soon held every-
, one in its thrall.
During the dance, the Misses
Kathleen and Irene Bruggy, very
prettily danced the Highland Fling
accompanied by Piper Norman
McLeod, on the bagpipes,
Dancing was oarried ou until a
few minutes before the hour of
midnight, when everyone departed
for home, agreeably surprised and
highly pleased with the evening's
entertainment.
Following is the sports programme:
1. Boy's Race. Jim Ness, Billy
Ness, Roy Johnson. 1st. Roy

Anyox Basketball
League Games
Teams  Are Rounding Out
There were three games played
on Friday night, January, 18th.
The first game' on the oard was
that between the Coke Plant, and
the Office, the former team winning
by the score of 34 to 13. The
Office started off with great speed
and inside of the first five minutes
of play the score stood 8 to 0. But
the paoe eventually got too fast for
them and they were completely
snowed under in the succeeding
minutes of play. Ballentyue and G.
Thomson showed up well for the
winners, Berry and Thorley for the
Office.
The second game was the ladies
League fixture. The Pats defeating
the Bluebirds by 9 to 2. Both
Teams play well, but the Pats seem
to be the class of the Ladies League
again this year, but as the season
progresses the other teams should
show improvement and some very
good games should materialize.
The Senior game brought together the Mine and the Smelter.
Which resulted in another win for
the Smelter quintette by the score
of 27 to 15. The Mine have shown
considerable improvement over
their first appearance and were
without the services of Teddy Hal-
verton. Brown, Down and Bob
Stewart were the outstanding stars
for the winners, while C. Ferguson,
Stubbs and Mealey played well for
the Mine.
On Monday only two games
were played. The first game
bringing to-gether the Rovers and
the Tuxis of the Intermediate
league. The former team winning
by the score of 20 to 7. The Tuxis
put up a good fight for the first
half of the game but were completely outclassed in the latter stages.
With the addition of one good
player the Tuxis should turn into a
dangerous contender for the league
leadership. The second game
brought together the High School
and the Pats, Whioh resulted in
a walk away for the Pats by the
large score of 31 to 8. The i High
Sohool were in the lead in the early
stage of the game but were unable
to hold their advautage, from half
time on the Pats seemed to be able
to score at will.
The Elks have secured the services of'a valuable player in the person of Mr. C. Hall, who is working
with Mr. Meeham at the sawmill.
It is not known yet whether he
will be available for Friday night's
game witli the Smelter, if he is,
with Geo. Williscroft baok on thej
lineup again, the'Elks should put
up a pretty stiff argument, agairiBt
the league leaders.

Good Games Alice
Arm Hockey
League
The Alioe Arm Hockey League
is still going strong with all three
teams running a neck-and-neck
race. During the week four games
have been played, and a keen interest is being taken in all games by
the local fans.
On Saturday, the Wildcats put
the Bears to sleep with the score of
4 to 2. after an exciting game aud
whirlwind finish.
On Monday the Bears more than
held their own against the Cats
when they scored 5 goals against
the Cats 4 in one of the fastest
games seen on the rink this season.
On Thursday the Cougars and
Bears mingled in a hot and furious
game. , At the end of the 1st. period the Beat's were three goals in
the lead. The Cougars stick handlers then got busy and turned the
tables on the Bears, the final score
being Cougars 6. Bears 5.
Yesterday, the Wildcats came
out of a first class scrimmage with
the Cougars, defeating them by 4
goals to 3. Both sides had their
full teams on the ice. and a fast and
brilliant game was played by both
teams.
Following is the standing of the
teams:
• Pld. Won Lost Pts;
Wildoats 4 3 16

Radiophone   Now
in Alice Arm
Mr. A. D. Yorke has the honor
of installing and operating the first
radiophone in Alice Arm. On
Sunday evening the first tryout
was given, and no difficulty was
experienced in picking up the
broadcasting station of the Belmont
Hotel, San Francisco. Ou Monday
evening concerts and news items
were listened to from Vancouver,
Calgary, and Jefferson City, Missouri.
Although it is not an expensive
machine everything conies through
as clear as if the parson sending
was sitting in the same room. ' The
Calgary programme included a
solo rendered by a lady, at the conclusion of which she gave a short
cough which could be plainly heard.
The broadcasting station at Jefferson City is W. 0. S. and the
programme included a Maroh by
the state Military Band of Missouri.
Now that Mr. Yorke has proved
the success of the radiophone in
Alice Arm, it is evident that more
machines will be quickly, installed.
Season Tickets for the Skating
Rink can be obtained at the Royal
Bank.
Tonight's  Carnival   will   commence at 8 p.m. SHARP.

■■ii
!:&&
DOG mushers at The Pas are
working hard to get their
teams in trim for the next an
nual Dog Derby which is to be held
this, year on March 11. Shorty
Russick, winner of last year's race
at Banff and second to Morgan in
The Pas event, is on the ground
training. The Morgan team, winners last year, will be driven by
Bert Hayes; Billy Grayson, who
drove Morgan's dogs last year, will
drive a team belonging to Tom
Creighton. Winterton, another old
Dog Derby musher, will enter a
team. The Bancroft-Dupas team
is in harness and Jack Bacon has
a splendid team in training for the
200-mile non-stop grind. Several
teams from* outside of Manitoba
are expected to test their speed
and endurance against the northern
huskies' and their drivers, and an
energetic committee is at work
rtriving to make the 1924 Derby
bigger and better than anything
that has yet been staged at "The
Gateway to the North."
This year will see also a "Queen
of the Carnival" contest in which
beautiful young ladies from all
parts of Manitoba will compete for
the honor of being Queen of the
Carnival or members of the Carnival Queen's Court. Entries in this
contest are beginning to reach the
committee and a lively contest for
the carnival honors is assured.'
Carnival features are being arranged for the enjoyment of outsiders visiting The Pas during the
period of the Dog Derby and efforts
are being made to provide amusement for everyone visiting the
ambitious northerners during their
annual winter fun festival.

E. MOSS, Editor antl Publisher
The following article is taken
from the editorial columns of
Mining Truth, Spokane, and
explains the changing conditions
in regard to obtaining money for
development of prospects.
Any prospector or small mining
operator who has approached any
of the so called big operating com
panies for capital with which to
develop properties which could
not be dignified by the term "mine,"
will subscribe to the statement that
such requests have always been
met with the excuse that prospects
could not be considered. Invariably a rider was added to the effect
that when extensive tonnage had
been blocked out and the reserves
could be vouched for by an engineer of standing, whose fees would
of course, be met by the property
owner, the big company would
consider the matter of purchase.
Usually, it was also stipulated that
negotiations must cover the whole
property or none.
It is interesting to notice that
these policies have been radically
revised in recent months, particularly by American Smelting & Refining Co. and it's local subsidary,
Federal Mining & Smelting Co.
It is admitted that the parent organization commands some of the
keenest minds engaged in the industry and it seems evident that they
have come to the conclusion that
real mines are mighty scarce. Obviously, if new mines are not developed, the smelting business will
soon suffer, and, in fact, already
has begun to suffer, as witness the
recent advance in the price of lead
which merely reflects insufficient
supply to meet a subnormal demand.
Operators have said for many years
that the smelting companies, in the
absence of public interest in mining
would soon be compelled to enter
the development field, but precedent dies hard even with the best
corporations of the kind, and it
has only been but lately that the
handwriting on the wall has been
clearly interpretated.
At this time the greatest measure
of prospecting and development
activity undertaken by the big
smelting company and its subsidiary, is confined to the northern
British Columbia fields, where
Dome Mountain, Duthie, Henderson and several other promising
properties have been acquired.
James Cronin, one of the most
successful operators of Spokane,
who has been developing the
Bonanza mine, in the Babine range
for twenty years past, has just
returned to his home for the winter,
and has called our attention to the
improved conditions brought about
by this radical change in policies.
It is quite certain that the lead will
be followed by other smelting
concerns; in fact we already know
of two others on the lookout for
likely properties of all kinds.
It is, as we see it, a great pity
that those who formerly made a
business of developing new mines
have been driven from the field,
but conditions are such that their
removal was inevitable. Public
capital for prospects is growing
increasingly scarce, due to laws of
restriction that have tied the hands
of the small' promoter. Big companies will not pay big prices,
because they practically occupy the
buying field alone. Lack of competition and gentlemen's agreements
will force the claim owner in
search of capital to take almost
anything offered, but nevertheless,
in a storm any port is better than
none, and we welcome development capital from any source.
Mineral Production of
Premier Mine For Last
Year Was Large
Crude ore shipped during 1923
reached approximately 88,000 tons,
and about 55,000 tons was milled.
The production was approximately
115,000 ounces gold and 2,800,000
ounces silver, roughly worth $2,300
000 for the gold and $1,820,000 for
the silver, or grand total of $4,120-
000. After deducting dividends
from gross income, a balance of
$2,420,000 was left to meet expenses and build lip surplus. While
no information is available, it is
quite certain that surplus created
by the last two years' operation
has reached a very material sum.
Underground development aggregated approximately 6,000 feet,
while surface and underground
diamond drilling reached about
14,000 feet.

Canada is Large Producer
"While Canada has only about
one half of one per cent of the world's
population, she produces 90 percent
of it's cobalt, 80 per cent, of it's
asbestos, 85 per cent, of it's nickel,
32 per cent, of it's pulpwood, 20
per cent, of it's lumber, 20 percent,
of it's cured tish, 18 per cent.- of
it's oats. 15 per cent of it's potatoes
12 per cent, of it's silver, 1.1 per
cent of it's barley, 4 per cent, of it's
gold, and 4 per cent, of its copper."
The butchers, restaurants, and
ice cream vendors of Alice Arm are
ready to harvest their usual ice
crop, but so far the maturing of
this necessary commodity has been
a failure.
German Capital to Develop
Saskatchewan Lignite
Proposals to interest German
capital in the development of the
Saskatchewan lignite coal industry
are being made at present and
options on large acreages are stated
to have been secured by a representative of Thyssen and company, of
Mannheim, Germany.

production to the end of 1922 show
An Aggregate Value of $769,418,462
The substantial progress of the Mining Industry in this Province is strikingly exhibited in the following
figures, which show the value of production for successive five-year periods: For all years to 1895, inclusive,
$94,547,241; for five years, 1896-1900, $57,607,967; forfiveyears, 1901-1905, $96,507,968; forfiveyears, 1906

Production During last ten years, $339,280,940
Lode-mining has only been in progress for about 33 years, and not 20 per cent of the Province has been
even prospected; 300,000 square miles of unexplored mineral bearing land are open for prospecting.
The Mining Laws of this Province are more liberal and the fees lower than those of any other Province
in the Dominion, or any Colony in the British Empire.
Mineral locations are granted to discoverers for nominal;fees.
Absolute Titles are obtained by developing such properties, security of which is guaranteed by
Crown Grants.

Annual General Meeting
of Canadian Mining
Institute
Arrangements in connection
with the Annual General meeting
of the British Gojumbia Division of
the Canadian Institute of Mining
and Metallurgy, in the Hotel Vancouver, Vancouver, on February
13th.-15th. have now been completed, and an excellent programme
has been prepared. All the subjects to be discussed at the technical sessions are of timely interest
and involve considerations in which
the general public is equally concerned with those directly engaged
in the mining industry of the province.
The material welfare of British
Columbia is' largely dependent on
the prosperity of the mining industry. All will agree that everything
possible should be done to ensure
that general conditions shall be as
conducive as they can be made to
an uninterrupted and progressive
expansion of the industry. Certain
existing economic and industrial
conditions are exercising a retarding
effect on our mining industry. These
unfavorable conditions may be removed or at least ameliorated.
Ways and means in other directions of stimulating progress need
constantly to be explored. The
promotion of the welfare of the
mining industry ■ is the 'principal
purpose of the Canadian Institute
of Mining and Metallurgy as set
forth in its character. In keeping
with this purpose, attention at the
forthcoming meeting will be mainly
directed to a survey of industrial
conditions as affecting mining in
the province, with a view to their
betterment. The subjects to be
immediately considered are included under the respective heads of
''Conditions favorable and unfavorable to mining in British Columbia"
"The disabilities of the Coal mining Industry in British Columbia
and Possible Remedies"; "The pos-
ibilities for an Iron and Steel Industry in British Columbia"; and
"Research in connection with local
Metallurgical Problems".
Novel Contrivance For
Bucking Snow
Messrs McDonnell and Seppi, of
the Salmon River Stage Line are
engaged in constructing a narrow
gauge bus for use on the winter
trail that is a decided novelty in
the stage line.
The machine will be driven both
by a wheel drive and an airplane
propellor. An ordinary Ford motor
will provide power to the wheels in
the usual manner and a high powered automobile racing motor will
drive the propellor, which is attached to the rear of the machine. The
constructors expect to use the pro
pellor only at such times as extra
power is required to help the stage
through loose snow or on surfaces
where the wheels are not able to
gain sufficient grip and when extra
speed is desired. It is believed that
with the combined push of the
wheels and propellor the machine
will be able to operate even in m'od-
erately deep snow without difficulty. The contrivance is admittedly
an experiment but the idea is' a
practical oiu and in the event of
its success w ,.1 open the way for a
new era of quick transportation
between Hyder and the mines during the winter period.—Hyder
Weekly Miner.
C.   N.  R Hauling   Larger
Amount of Grain
An increase of more than 25,000,-
000 bushels is shown in the amount
of grain loaded over the Canadian
National Railways through the
west since the opening of the season on September 1, as compared
with the corresponding period of
last season.
