also have a bond on the Kitzol
'Group in the , Upper Kitsault

holdings in the Alice Arm district
during the week. On Monday,
they purchased outright the Climax

Besner of Prince Rupert. Mr.
Besner will become a member of the
Board of Directors of the Utility Co.
In addition to the Climax the

several other mining claims in the
In the purchase of the Climax the
Utility Co. have acquired a property
pf .considerable merit. It is situated on Trout Creek and adjoins the
Moose and Silver Horde groups.
Mr. Besner has done considerable
underground work on the property
iluring the past few years with very
successful results. A tunnel has
jeen driven on the ore body at an
plevation of 2350 feet. It crosscut

The big vaudeville entertainment
staged by the Anyox Boy Scouts,
Girl Guides and Wolf Cubs on Friday evening last drew a large house.
It was a first class entertainment
in every respect. All the leading
Anyox artistes were seen at their
best, and great credit is due them
and also the organizers for the
evening's enjoyment. An encouraging feature^ is that $200.00 were
realized, which will be divided

Spirited Anyox Debate
On High School
An evening's entertainment was
afforded to those who tpok the opportunity to attend the Anyox
Debating Society's discussion on
"Resolved that the present high
school course meets the needs of
the pupils."
Supporting the well-nigh untenable affirmative, Mr. Fordyce
Clark demonstrated how recent
developments in seoondary education elsewhere than in Anyox and
in British Columbia were meeting
the needs of the pupils in regard
to 1. Mastery of the fundamental
processes, 2. Health education',. 3.
Moral education, 4. Training for
worthy home membership, 5. Education for citizenship, 6. Training
in the wise use of leisure, 7. Vocational guidance.
For the negative Mr. W. F.
Barclay presented an indictment
aimed particularly at the high
schools of B. C. and with the evidence of the commissioners who
conducted the recent school survey
and of other authorities secured a
majority vote from an audience
whose outlook was restricted to
conditions prevailing in this province
One authority quoted by Mr.
Barclay stated that the cause
might very well lie with the tax
payers. They would probably get
better results if they were willing
to pay more. Numerous interesting interpolations were made from
the floor. The President considered the affirmative's contention for
health education as something out-,
side the province of the schools.
Principal Hartley attributed the
creation of the middle school to the
failure of the high school properly
to function in the first year, and
Rev. J. Dewar maintained that re
ligion was banished entirely from
B. C. schools. Mrs. Eve, however,
made a strong point when she stated that dissatisfaction with the high
shools centered around the examination for college entrance. Before
and after the debate Messrs. Peele
and associated players delighted the
audience with orchestral selections,
and Mr. J. L. Anderson was heard
in two pleasing vocal solos.
Mechanics Win a Well
Contested Game
Beach and Mechanics entertained
the gallery with a well contested
game, the Hillmen winning at 28-
20. During the major engagement
Macintyre and Dean put on a little
not of their own which escaped the
referee's attention. Perhaps it was
intended for interpretive dancing.
Something ought to be done

Much Business Disposed
Anyox Community
League Meeting
The regular meeting of the Community League Council was held in
the Welfare Office Wednesday
night, the. Debating Society using
regular meeting place, Recreation
Hall, that night. The Board of
Managers, United Church, requested the use of Recreation Hall for
Friday, January 25th. for the purpose of putting on a concert, and
this was granted. For Friday February 8th., theW. A. & Guild of
Christ Chnrch requested Recreation
Hall for concert purposes, and this
was granted. The Pioneer Mess
Management asked for the privilege
of using the Reading Room on the
night of December 28th. for the
purpose of holding a dance in connection with the Annual Christmas
Dinner. This request was granted.
A letter from the Manager of the
Kincolith Basketball Team asking
about possibility of entering their
teatrj in the Anyox Basketball
League was read and the Secretary
instructed to write an answer out
lining the conditions of competition
in Anyox. There was some discus
sion regarding the decorating of
Recreation Hall and also about the
possibility of making'some sort of a
picnic resort at Larcom Island. An
offer from Mr. J. Grigg of some
gymnasium equipment was accepted
and the donor thanked.
H.C. Girls Win Opening,
Basketball Game
The High School Girls won their
opening game against the Beach
Ladies by 11 to 6. The play was
closer than the score indicates.
The Beach forwards missed a number cf easy chances. Of ten free
throws they failed to soore any,
while the High School netted four
out of nine.
The students led all the way but
in the third period Miss Green
wood's three baskets had pulled up
the score to 7-6. By this time
Annie Scott had acquired four
personal fouls and there were no
Beach substitutes eligible to reenter the game.
Their line-up was further weakened by the absence of Miss Gordon
throughout the game and Miss
Greenwood's delayed appearance.
The school girls showed promise
but threaten to overdo the bouncing pass. One thing is certain.
To avoid disputes, players and
officials must be more familiar with
the existing rules.
The teams were:
High Sohool: F. Cameron 7,
M. Dresser 2, L. Dresser, W. Cam
eron, K. Eve, J. McDonald, M.
Cloke 2.   Total: 11.
Beach: P. O'Neill, M. O'Neill,
A. Scott, M. McRostie; V. Eve,
D. Greenwood 6.   Total: 6.
Alice Arm Chamber Of
Mines Hold Regular
A regular meeting of the Alice
Arm branch of the British Columbia
Chamber of Mines was held at the
School on Monday evening. President O. Evindson presided
The minutes of the previous meeting were read by secretary A. D.
Yorke and were adopted as read.
In reply to a request from the
Chairman regarding total expense
of entertaining members of the Vancouver Board of Trade when they
paid Alice Arm a visit in August,
the secretary stated that the total
amounted to $52.35.
The construction of a building to
be used as headquarters for the organization was briefly discussed
and it was resolved to leave the
matter in obeyance until next spring.
The question of a lot for the
building" was discussed, and the
secretary was instructed to Vv,....n-
unicate with the Department of
Lands regarding the matter. The
government own a vacant lot opposite the Coliseum, and it was thought
that this site would be very suitable
if the lot could be acquired gratis
from the government.
The extension of the present
wagon road from the end of the
steel of the Dolly Varden Railway
was also discussed. It was the
unanimous opinion of those present
that the extension of the road would
considerably foster mining in the
Upper Kitsault Country, in addition
to providing better transportation
facilities to present operating companies.
The secretary was instructed to
write to the Minister of Mines; the
Minister of Public Works, and
H. F. Kergin, M. L. A. for this
district, asking for an extension of
the road next spring, and that its
completion be carried to the Kitsault Glacier as early as possible.

Did you ever stop to think that
the life blood of the average business enterprise is advertising.
That there are many business
concerns thriving today which owe
their success to publicity.
That there are few forward
looking business men who do not
believe in advertising and still
fewer who may be unwilling to
give the newspaper full credit.
That some business enterprises
can exist in a way without publicity, but they cannot make progress
-cannot keep pace with the trend
of the times-and they must eventually admit that they are losing
That this is an age of advertising, and the newspaper offers one
of the cheapest, most direct and
most effective mediums of reaching
the purchasing public.
Prohibition Will Again  Be
Brought to Front
The abolition of the present
system of government control of
liquor and in its place total prohibition is to be urged upon the provincial government by a delegation
of the Prohibition Association before
the next session of the legislature,
when the government is to be asked
to institute an enquiry into the
method of control now in vogue,
which, according to prohibitionists,
"will reveal sufficient reasons for
repeal of present legislation."
Angus McGougan was elected president at the closing of the session.
British Columbia will ask the
federal government to amend the

as to provide for convicted drug

Consolidated   Acquires
Large Mineral Area
Near Stewart
Portland Canal Nswi
The greatest step imaginable in
broadening out the looal mineral
area was taken this fall when tWe
Consolidated Mining and Smelthfg
Company acquired from Charles
Knipple and Thomas (Tim) Williams, both of Stewart, a large mineral /.one on the Naas slope north
of Bowser lake.
According to the records in the
local mining recorder's office, 57
mineral claims have been staked in
all to cover this showing, by the
Little is really known officially,
but it is understood that Knipple-
and Williams had known of this
showing for a long time, and on
reporting it to the Consolidated,
engineers were sent in to examine,
and if as represented, to locate the
ground, it being so far in and so
large that it had not been staked.
While nothing is really known what
the report was, it is understood
that it was satisfactory, and Consolidated representatives found
things as represented, with the result that the whole zone is now
owned by the Consolidated.
The mineralized area is reported
to be a zone with an average width
of from 700 to 800 feet and some
4| miles long. Time has not permitted any work having been done on
it yet, but chipped samples taken
from the surface are reported to
give a return of $3.50 per ton in
gold and silver; in addition to a
big arsenic content.
Located on the Naas slope of the
divide between Twenty-mile creek
and the Unuk river, the development of this immense showing by
the Consolidated will be of the utmost importance, as it will demand
transportation facilities and will
open up this same mineral belt in
which Stewart is located for a distance of many miles further north.
