Shareholders of  Alice
Arm Skating Arena
Hold Meeting
Rules Made Regarding Hours
And Tickets
A meeting of the shareholders of
the Alioe Arm Skating Arena, was
held in Mr. T. W. Falconer's store,
on Thursday evening.
Several matters were brought
up, and the first to be discussed
was the question of price of season
tiokets. After considerable discussion, it was resolved that the
price of a season ticket be $5 for
men, and that women and ohildren should be exempt from all
The matter of providing speoial
hours for men's.hockey praotice
was brought tip, and aVthe present
plan of allowing women and
children on: the ice during men's
hockey practioe was considered
very dangerous it was resolved
that the following rules should be
strictly enforced: women's hockey
praotice from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m.,
Tuesday, Thursday aud Saturday.
Men's hookey practice every day
from 3 p.m. to 4 pm. The balance
of the day being open to those
who desire to skate.
It was decided to install sufficient light so that beginners and
skaters oan make use of the rink
during the evening.
The matter of insuring the
building against fire, was brought
up, but it was decided to leave,
this matter to a future meeting.
It was desired by the majority
of the meeting that a collection be
taken up at all the Anyox—■Alice.
Arm games, but this matter will
be deoided later.
Teams for flooding the rink
throughput the season were formed
Eaoh team is composed of four
men, and they will be required to,
flood the rink for seven nights.
The date they will take office and
the men composing the team, will
be posted at the rink.
Three local teams will be formed
to battle for the town championship, and some interesting games
shduld result. If everyone digs in
and lends a hand when required,
there seems to be do doubt that
this season will even surpass previous seasons for good sport on the
local rink.    '■

Christmas Tree for
Catholic Children
Followed By a Dance
The annual Christmas Festival
for the Catholio ohildren, was held
in the Catholio Hall, on Thursday,
Deoember 27th. The beautiful
Christmas Tree, bedeoked with
brilliant lights and shades, stood,
in one corner of the picturesque
hall. C\
The fifty or more children spent
an exceedingly happy two hours,
merry-making and refreshing
themselves with gifts from\Santa
Claus. There were dolls of every
sort for the girls and mechanical
toys for the boys. Then they joined iu Christmas Carols and games,
and were loth to leave when the
hall was being made ready for the
dancers, and soon they were on
their way home, light-hearted but
laden down with Christmas
The remaining hours of the
evening was given over to dancing.
The three-piece orchestra, Messrs.
Waterman, Haesler and Liddell,
played to a packed hall, and the
terpiscorean artists danced away
the all too short evening under a
maze of varied colored lights.
Gaiety seemed to be the order of the
evening and one of the jolliest of
local dances had become a record of
the past at 12 midnight, Thursday
December 27th.
Large Congregation at
Midnight Mass at Anyox
A capaoity congregation crowded
the Roman Catholic Church, long
before the commencement of the
Midnight Mass Services, on Christinas Eve, and listened to a magifi-
cent rendering of the time honored
music. The renditions of the
soloists, Mrs. Morning, aud Messrs.
Morning, Cordon and Hegarty
were of an unusual high order of
merit, and were sung with all due
brilliance and spirit, leaving a deep
impression on the attentive congregation. The organist, Mrs.
O'Neill, contributed fine musicianship in her accompaniments to the
choir. •
Rev. Father Fleok preaohed an
appealing sermon on the true
meaning of Christmas, and urged
his hearers to exemplify in their
lives what the birth of Christ had
meant to the world.

south are beginning to wonder if

The balmy southern breezes,
reminiscent of orai>ge groves and
cocoanut palms, which we have
experienced for tl_t*past ten months
suddenly came to an end last Saturday, much to tbe joy of the local
skating fans. Quick action was
taken in flooding the skating rink,
work being carried oh throughout
the night, and on Monday a nice
sheet of ice was ready for the eager
throng.   .:-■'

Address Parent-Teacher
Readers of the "Herald" must have
noticed that a popular taste has been
acquired in Anyox for dances, dinners; and concerts, as evidenced by
the successive accounts of such
functions appearing week after
week in our columns. That a kindred taste has not yet been cultivated for lectutes and oratorical effort
in general may be due partly to our
isolated position which leaves us
out of the track of speakers easily
available for the larger centres.
It should be remembered however,
that in our town there is more than
the average number of authorities
upon technical and industrial subjects. Busy as these men are, they
probably would find time to give
of there knowledge to audiences
seeking it if sincerely encouraged
to do so.
The Parent-Teaoher 'Association
has recognized the need of mora
public meetings of an educational
nature and with it the possibility of
meeting this need by taking more
advantage of the pent up information right at hand. Several local
men will be heard before that organization during the next term. But
in the matter of selecting a speaker
to deal wiih current educational
problems in themselves the P. T. A.
Executive has gone further afield
and found a man whose leadership
in his profession renders him the
logical choice.
Mr. J. C. Brady, Principal of
Prince Rupert High School who
(will deliver an address at an open
meeting of the P. T. A. in the Elks'
Hall, Thursday evening next, has
for several years represented this
northern section of the province ou
the executive of the British Columbia Teachers' Federation. It is '
from this Executive representation
of all the teachers in the province,'
that the Department of Education
expects many constructive recom-
endations which become incorporated in the School Curriculum and
School Regulations. To be a member of such an executive a teacher
must be a keen follower of the
trend of educational thought,
wherever public instruction is attempted today. Mr. Brady more
than meets this requirement He
is a thinker possessed of exceptional
ability to express his thoughts with
power. It is hoped that the efforts
ofthe P. T. A. in arranging this
meeting will be justified by a capacity attendance.
Weather forecast: SNOW!
the Hall, a deficit in the sleigh
gear, which was due to so much
heavy travelling, gave way, and
Santa came rolling out. He managed, however, to control his reindeer, and had an expert mechanic
repair his sleigh for his return trip
while he gave all the children a
present, arid informed them that
he would be back next year. ALICE   ARM   AND   ANYOX   HERALD,   Alios Arm,   Saturday, January 5, 1924

The Canadian-American conference on liquor smuggling is an
American invasion of Canada as a
short cut to stopping the flow of
liquor into the United States in
violation of the prohibition amendment and the law based on it.
The traditional method of stopping
smuggling is to defeat the smugglers
at the natural barrier recognized" in
the law, which in this case is the
international boundary. Ordinarily what a smuggler does in
Canada in order to promote his
success in the United States is of
no interest to the government
unless he violates the law.
Among the proposals offered by
the United States is one providing
that the government shall refuse to
clear ships of less than 250 tons
bearing  liquor   cargoes.      Thi
United States also asks that the
government communicate to the
United States authorities all information about large liquor ships
leaving Canadian ports. The government may be willing for diplomatic reasons to help, but can
hardly agree to catch smugglers
leaving Canada if the United
States can not catch them upon
arrival. It is up to the United
States to enforce their own laws
and stop asking Canada to spend
good Canadian money to help
them. It takes enough money to
enforce our own laws, without
assisting enforcement of the foolish
laws of the United States.
No  Low Railway Rates to
British Empire Exhibition
There will be no special fares on
Canadian railway lines for the
British Empire Exhibition, to be
held in London, England, this
year,' according to an announcement made by Canadian National
passenger officials at Winnipeg.
However, they pointed out that the
usual low excursion rates from
points in Canada will prevail to Atlantic ports.
Eight Hour Work Day
One of the chief measures passed
at the reoent session of the Legislature was the eight-hour day bill,
For the first time in the history of
Canada a government has been
progressive enough to follow out
the principles of the Treaty of
Versailles with regard to labor
legislation, and an eight-hour day
was plaoed ou the statute books, to
become operative on January 1,
1925. The new law is a comprehensive one and is expected to lead
the way for all other provinces
And except for the objeotion that
the Act will not function for a
year, labor appears well satisfied.
However, it is known that labor
has a way of demanding a great
deal in the way of reform, and it is
conceded that the Oliver government has gone a long way in this
The strongest objections that
any aot affecting the hours of labor
were put forward by industrial
leaders and capital, and direct claim
was made that industry would
praotioally be shattered if an eight*
hour bill were passed. However
an eight-hour bill has been passed
and both labor and employer have
been met half way, something of an
achievement for any administration.

Big Ontario Silver  Nugget

Copper Production  is
Too High
Copper—Demand remains very
light, upon a hand-to-mouth basis
both here and abroad. The situation is rapidly developing, into a
%ht between the interests of North
and South America producers.
Upon good authority it is said that
the world is now oalled Upon to
absorb no less than 400,000,000
pounds in excess of the production
prevailing before the war. The
increase comes from South America
where production has. increased
from 62,000,000.pounds in 1913 to
460,000,000 pounds estimated output for this year. The problem
now confronting producers is the
equitable reduction of production
to a figure that will allow the market to absorb up to within a reasonable margin. Who is going to start
reduction of production for the
benefit of general trade? That is
the question and,, in view of the
fact that all or nearly all, big
northern producers are also heavily
interested in southern mines, there
is liable to be some jockeying before
a decision: is. arrived at. «Whatever
may be the dutoome in this direction, it is at least certain that without the full strength of European
buying power we are'helpless, to
get rid of what we are producing
now, The future, does not look
overly bright.—Mining Truth.

THE world is getting so big and
there are so many little folks
and big folks in it who look
forward to a visit from Santa
Claus, all on the same day, that
the genial old gentleman is forced
by the pressure of his duties to
discard his reindeer and his sleigh
on occasions and to travel on the
fast passenger trains that are
speeding people home for Christmas Day. Nothing but the very
best will do Santa Claus, and that
is why, as you see here, he has
chosen as his steed one of the huge
locomotives of the Canadian National Railways. These locomotives, known as the 6000 type, are
the biggest passenger locomotives
in Canada. Santa Claus posed for
this picture when he was inspecting the engine so that all the boys
and girls, and grown-ups, too,
could be sure that he would reach
them on Christmas Eve.

and purchases rendered the sale
possible have a right to know that
as the net reoeipts were $112.15
the affair proved a signal success
The High Sohool Club oan now
proceed with long cherished plans
for the purchase of athletic supplies
to be used both in the sohool basements and at the Central Gymnasium. The material purchased will
be all the more appreciated by
girls and boys alike, as a result of
feeling that these things were
acquired by their own industry.
It would appear that the High
Sohool Teachers have been supported in their opinion that pupils of
that school age should receive
assistance from well-disposed organized bodies according to the tendency shown to help . themselves,
suoh concerted action being a necessary part of their training.
- Special thanks of the High Sohool
Club are due to the following helpers on the afternoon of the sale,*
