Daily Province
Entertainment
At Anyox
On Monday December 18th, a
oonoerfc or variety entertainment
was put on in the Reoreation Hall
by the Community League for the
benefit of the Province Xmas Tree
fund.
Unfortunately old man winter
had only got half way through
, with a fonr days snow fall which
made travelling, very unpleasant.
Nevertheless an audience large
enough to make a success of the
affair was present and the Xmas
Tree fund is swelled by the addition
of over $80.00 proceeds of the
concert, which has been sent to
the Vancouver Province.
This is the season of good cheer
and credit is due to every one who
assisted in the worthy cause, iu an
endeavor to bring a little cheer into
the homes of those who are in want
at this time in Vancouver.
Among those who contributed
towards this entertainment and
must not be overlooked are, the
A. C. L. wfio gave the Hall free of
charge, the Granby Co. for trans-
portingof artists, and other services.
Mr. H. Berry manager of the show,
and his able assistant F. Leggett.
W. Robertson, Treasurer. T. P.
Ryan Stage manager. The
orchestra and artists among whom
were:
Mrs. 0. Watson and Max
Morrow, and the jazz.babies, in
songs and chorus.
2. Ed. Blundell, whose sweet
singing called for an encode. -
3. Four Bashful Blighters,
Messrs. Berry, Leggett, Morrow,
and Nickerson, in harmony, mirth
and laughter. Nickerson creating
quite an impression as a cissy boy.
4. Liddel, Whittaker and Tyn-
mouth and Co., in Hiokville frolics'.
5. Leggett and Berry, blackface songs and patter.
6. A very pretty aot, chosen
from   the P. T. A. ooncent pro*
•amme, in which the children
delighted with pretty and graceful
dancing. The dancing of Bonnie
Chapman being particularly good. '
7. Jimmy Prevost, with his
banjo-mandolin.

Rich Strike of Ore
at Esperanza Mine
Property Looks Good.  More
Men will be Employed.
Another new rich vein of silver
ore, was struck on the Esperanza
on Wednesday, in the Baldy tunnel, and the operators are of the
opinion that they have now struok
the main vein.
Eight men are working steadily
on the property, arid in the past
four months 300 tons of ore have
been mined. Mr. R. Armour, sec-
treas. of the Espesanza mine, in
an interview with the Herald,
stated that there were ten tunnels
on the property, all carrying small
veins of high grade silver ore, from
four to ten inches wide, ranging in
value from $100.00 to $500.00 per
ton, and that his company were
contemplating early in the New
Year to start operating all these
tunnels, and to contract this work
on a commission basis in order to
develop the property. In this way
40 or probably 50 men would be
employed, the work to be given
only to competent miners.
It is well known to most residents of the district that there
were two tons of high grade taken
out of this property in the early
days, whioh netted the owners
$16,000.00, and the present owners
consider that the main body is still
there, aud that.a fortune awaits
those who find the main lead.
Mr. Armour also says that the
tunnel driven by J. Murdoch . on
the Esperanza Extension, which
adjoins the Esperanza, gave the
best information so far obtained on
the hill, for there is a true lead
running from these claims right up
to the Esperanza, and following
this lead has given the desired
information on the location of this
vein on the Esperanza.
; If the owners of the Esperanza
allow work to prooeed oh the
various tunnels, there are a lot of
miners in the district who have
been waiting a long time for this,
and there is bound to be a lot of
activity around the Arm this
winter, for the Esperanza is., situated less than two miles from the
town of Alice Arm.
Alice Arm and Anyox
to Play Hockey
A letter was received by Mr. M.
D. Ross during the week, from the
Mine Club at Anyox, inviting the
local team to a series of friendly
games. Owing to the present spell
of mild weather it ' has been
impossible for the looal team to
arrange a date, but as soon as good
ice is obtainable the matter will be
taken up.
Skating at Alice Arm
Skating on the Alice Arm rink
was continued up to yesterday
when the present Spell of mild
weather started to effect the ice.
A hockey game between two local
teams was staged last Sunday, and
a hard game was fought by both
teams. The local stick handlers
are fast getting into shape and
some good games should be witnessed this year.
Preliminary Work Going on
at Logging Camp
Preliminary work at the Tretheway logging camp is going
steadily ahead. About ten men
are at present employed, but it is
expected that this force will be
considerably increased as soon as
material arrives for building a
permanent camp.
The fall rains are falling a little
later that usual.
This is great weather for the
people with sore feet. Something
nice and soft to walk on.
Watch your step this Christmas
or you may get wet, both in and
out.

Christmas.
By the time this paper is in the
hands of its readers, Christmas
day will be upon us. Most of the
preparation work will have been
finished. Presents will have been
sent, and nothing more remains to
be done, but to celebrate in the
usual good old fashioned style, as
has been done by our ancestors
for countless generations. Christmas Day is the greatest festival of
the Christian Church; signifying as it
does, the birth of our Lord Jesus
Christ whose teachings most of us
endeavor to follow. It is celebrated in every land on the globe
wherever christians are living, but
nowhere will it be celebrated in
better fashion than the towns of
Anyox and Alice Arm. In both
towns Christmas dances will be
held, Christmas trees and entertainments will be given the children.
Everyone will be in a happy mood.
Even our supposed enemies will be
favored with a "Merry Christmas"
on the morning of the 25th.
Canadian National
Railways.
Now that Sir Henry Thornton
has secured supreme control of the
Canadian National Railway System
with the strict understanding that
politics will be absolutely barred, it
will be interesting to watch the
future developement of those
systems under his control. It
remains to be seen whether he will
allow himself to be dictated to by
the Canadian Pacific Railway Co.
as every government, both federal
and provincial, have been in the
past. The present federal government evidently did not relish the
idea of openly opposing the C. P. R.
they have therefore thrown the
burden on to the shoulders of
Sir Henry Thornton. That the
C. P. R. are jealous of the Canadian National Railways, is well
known, and they have used every
means to discredit those lines,
It has been their practice to use
their influence with the federal
government, & also every provincial
government in the Dominion, in
order to develop the country
tributary to their system, and to h—
with the rest. Whether the fight
ing qualities of Sir Henry Thornton
will be strong enough to counteract
that policy remains to be seen.
Also will the port of Prince
Rupert be developed into a seaport
or allowed to remain as at present,
absolutely lifeless ar regards ocean
going shipping, while Vancouver
backed by that Canadian octopus,
the C. P. R. grabs everything and
yells for more.
The Omineoa Herald and
Terrace News published last week
a special edition in addition to the
weekly paper. It is well printed
and profusely illustrated, and deals
with the mining, agricultural and
lumber recourses of the distriot,
besides giving a lot of useful information.
A late copy of the Vancouver
Mining and Engineering Record,
published a first-class article relating to the Premier mine. It deals
with the history, location discovery,
ore values, comparison with Corn-
stock, economic geology, production
dividends, etc. It is illustrated,
and is as good an article on the
Premier mine as has been published.

STORES DEPARTMENT
Anyox all Ready
For Christmas
The people of this- prosperous
little town of, Anyox are all ready
to celebrate Chsistmas. The stores
have been orowded throughout the
week, and the overworked olerks
are thankful that this is the /last
day the stores remain open. The
post office experienced the usual
Christmas rush. All the mail has
been handled expeditiously, and it
will be with a sigh of relief from
the staff when the wickets are
closed this evening. If anyone is
entitled to a good time at Christmas, it certainly is the employees
of the Post Office.
The Community League has
commenced the festivities by
holding a danoe last evening, and
the Salvation Army held a
Christmas Tree for the little ones.
The Community League aud the
B. P. O. Elks are both giving
Christmas Trees and entertainments
this year, so that the juveniles will
have some pleasant memories of
their childhood in Anyox when
they grow up.
Of every four dollars paid by a
purchaser for liquor at a government
store, $1,25 stays in the province*
one dollar goes to Scotland," while
$1.67 goes to the federal government.
This was an estimate given the public
accounts committee by Archie Johnson
head of the liquor board.

I Liquor Sales at Anyox
Make Big Total
The Victoria Daily Times published a short time ago the value
[of liquor sold in eaoh store in the
[provinoe, since it was opened,
down to September 30th, 1922.
j Sixty-three liquor stores are now
being operated throughout British
I Columbia, under the liquor control
I board, according to information
[given the legislature recently by
I Attorney-General Manson.
Since the Anyox store was open-
! ed, to September 30th, liqu'or to
the value of $106,706.70 has been
i sold.
Following is a list of the amount
| of liquor sold in some of the other
! stores of the provinoe.
1 Prince Bupert ..... I.. $1355.660.15
Smithers —:;— 76,538.14
Stewart .69.565.35
Terrace... 12.105.36
'Trail 105,389.25
Atlin ...' 24,310.40
Telegraph Creek  .2,470,75
•Revenue derived from permits,
from June 15, 1921 to September
30,1922, was $488,604.50.
'. No one can deny that a large
amount of money is being spent
on liquor in the province.   But the
fact remains that it is better to sell
i good liquor in a legitimate manner
than to force prohibition on to the
people and breed a race of moonshiners.   It is  possible  that the.
people of future generations will
I dispense   with  liquor to a large
i degree, arid if that end is to be
attained it will only be done by
I education,    and    not   repressive
measures.    The  time  is -not yet
I ripe for the total abolition of liquor.
Drum Lummon Will
Ship Ore to Anyox
The Drum Lummon mine on the
Douglas Channel, is being extensively developed. Sone new shoots
are being opened up and it is
expected that regular ore shipments
will shortly be made to the Anyox
smelter. A new ore body has been
recently opened up, whioh assays
gold 0.01 ozs.;silver 7.5 ozs.; oopper
19.5 per cent.
General B. G. Edwards Leckie
has taken over the Wind pass mine
at Ohu Chua, and has associated
with him Messrs. W. B. Wilson,
president of the Crows Nest Pass
Coal Co. Limited, and Trites and
Wood of Fernie. The Windpass is
a gold mine whioh has made several shipments of high grade to
the Trail Smelter.

He took his .wife down town' to shop
To save car fare was.great;
He jammed into one lamp post—"

He spent about all that he had,
And then in anguish cried:
I'll put a mortgage on the house
And take just one more ride.

the holidays with her parents.
Harry Owen left on Thursday,
to spend the Christmas holidays in
Ihe south.
Those who are not fortunate
enough to possess a car are unanimously of the opinion that three
feet of snow mixed with about
thirty feet of rain takes all the joy
out of walking.
J. E. Trethewey, of Abbotsford
arrived on Thursday, and left the
following morning for an inspection
of the work going on at the logging
camp.
All signs point to the commencement of a big mining boom on the
northern B. C. coast next year,
with Alice Arm taking a leading
part. With extensive mining and j
logging operations being orrried on
here next year, Alioe Arm will be
one of the liveliest little burgs in
the west.

Ann Skating Rink can now be
obtained from T. W. Falconer, H.
Fowler, M. D. Ross, E. R. Oatman.
Adults $7.50 Ladies $3.00 and
Children $1.00.
Some of the people of Alice Arm
have had a good time with the
skates this week, but the Christinas "skate" is likely to prove
more popular.
J. E, Trethewey arrived in town
on Thursday, in order to make an
inspection of operations at the
logging camp, and outline a programme for the winter and coming

Nearly three feet of snow fell in
the district during the week, followed by a heavy rain. The first
sleighs made their appearance at
the beginning of the week,which is
unusually late for this locality.
A little girl went to church with a
neighbor and on her return home her
father usked her if she liked the
sermon.
"Yup" she replied.
"What was the text?" he asked.
"Don't be scared: you'll got the
quilt," she proinply replied.
After much pondering over her answer the father called up the minister
on the phone and asked what his text
had been.
Be not afraid, I will send you the
comforter," replied the minister.
