Gaiety and Merriment
Marks Hard Times
Dance
Last week's Saturday night entertainment at Alice Arm took the
form of a dance instead of a card
^arty. It was a Hard Times dance,
not from necessity, however, but
merely a novelty. White collars
and silk skirts were left at home.
Everyone was attired in free and
easy style. No white collars to
pinch the throat or tight-fitting
dancing shoes to torture the feet.
So enthusiastically did everyone
enter into the spirit of the occasion
that the committee appointed to fine
nonconformists could not collect a
dime.
Rare rhythmic, rippling music
was rendered, and rattling the
ivories was Mr. Wm. Stephen.
Assisting him were T. W. Falconer
and J. Trinder. The music this
trio supplied would quickly dispel
any attack of the blues.
And the supper; it was'nt a supper
but a banquet composed of brown
Boston baked beans, buttered brown
bread, doughnuts, cookies, coffee,
in fact all things were passed, even
the hat.
The scene of all this gaiety was
the Alice Arm Hotel, and the
management are to be complimented
on the excellent arrangements made,
and the care taken to make all com-'
fortable,
During an interlude in the dancing
a solo was rendered by Mrs. C. W.
Ruckhaber of Anyox,    "Lay   my
head beneath a Rose," which receiv
ed thunderous applause.

Toric Co.  Ships  500
Sacks Concentrates
Five hundred sacks of concentrates from the Toric mine were
shipped south on the Camosun on
Monday. The shipment was made
by the Toric Mines Co. and were
milled previous to the negotiations
entered into by the Britannia Co.
The mine and mill have been inactive since negotiations were first
conducted with the Britannia Co.
for transfer of the property. As
this deal was not consummated, due
to opposition of a number of Toric
shareholders, negotiations were
commenced with the Russia Asiatic
Consolidated, and operations at the
Toric will be at a standstill until an
option has been taken on it by the
last named company.

Alice Arm Has Many
Inducements to Offer
Mining engineers and others,
who are intimately acquainted with
the mining area of Alice Arm are
convinced that the camp has a
future second to none in tlie province. Their predictions are
apparently about to be realized.
The big companies are now interested and from now on the mining
industry of the district will tin-
loubtedly expand at a rapid pace.
It has been proved that this district possesses large bodies of commercial ore. Transportation difficulties are not hard to surmount.
Water for power purposes abound.
Easy river grades are available to
tide-water so that ores and concentrates can be shipped easily and
cheaply to any part of the world.
Alice Arm has everything necessary for economical mining and
milling of its ores. It is expected
that several large companies will
become interested in the camp during the present year, as they realize the importance of acquiring
ground in this section before the
best is taken up.

Dance
At a meeting of the executive of
the P. T. A. on Monday, Miss Richards, convenor of the Committee

E. MOSS, Editor and Publisher,
Opinion in the south, among our
legislators at Victoria and public
speakers of Vancouver, seem to be
divided as to whether the construction of a railway from Stewart
inland, whi'ch will eventually tap
the Peace River country, should
be allowed to proceed. When
the matter came up for discussion
in the legislature, party lines were
eliminated, each member voicing
his own views. The excuse of
members opposing the railway is
that they are afraid that it will
mean the ruination of the P. G. E.
One of the shining legal lights of
Vancouver, G. G. McGeer, K. G.
when addressing the Vancouver
Ratepayers Association, said:
'Tf Vancouver had a proper community spirit it would not allow
its elected representatives to back
suoh a scheme as the Stewart-
Peace River Railway line. I would
expect a man from Stewart to fos
ter such a project, not one repre
Renting Vanoouver iu the Federal
House, and another in the Provincial House introducing a bill to
authorize it. Yet we find our own
Harry Stevens, who sits in Parliament, is the prime mover in the
project, and George Walkout introduces the private bill in the Legis
lature."
As a parochialist, Mr. McGeer
shines even a little brighter than a
lawyer. The vision of the northern
railway obstructionists is extremely
limited. In their opinion Vancouver is the only place in the
whole of British Columbia that
should have a railway terminus.
They would compel the farmers of
the Peace River district to ship
their grain over double the distance
to tidewater so that Vancouver
should benefit. The farmers paying double price in shipping charges.
And in the next breath they tell
the unemployed of the city to go
back to the land and raise wheat.
The federal government have spent
millions of dollars in building a railway to the Hudson  Bay,  thus
Woodbine Company Is
Faced With Serious
Problem
What will be done with the
Woodbine will probably be decided
at the annual general meeting' of
the company which will be held in
Vancouver on the 22nd, instant.
This property has been remarkable
in that ore showings were undoubtedly fine, but reports of the' latest
engineers are that values are not
commercial. Yet in the face of
that, several Portland Canal miners
have already added to their stock
holdings, maintaining the mine is a
sound proposition. Vancouver
shareholders, largely interested, a
so have the same idea, and the
meeting to be held on the 22nd
should have interesting develop
merits.
The report of the engineers is
that diamond drilling and other
\vork has not produced positively
favorable results, but points out
that only part of the area constituting the holdings of the company
has been prospected. The area
prospected is the section where exposures indicated the best posibili-
ities for the occurrence of ore bodies.
The report points out that the company is not financially able to make
the payment of $50,000 due on the
property and at the same time continue development.
providing a short railway haul for
eastern prairie grain. The northern
railway knockers are endeavoring
to compel the provincial govern
ment to extend the P. G E. so
that Peace River farmers will have
a longer railway haul for their
grain. Is it any wonder that the
great northern portion of the province, rich in minerals, timber and
agricultural land lies idle one decade
after another, if such tactics are
allowed to succeed? There is,
we believe, enough men in our legislature and also in Vancouver with
a broad enough vision to realize
that the holding up of a railway
from the Peace River country to
the northern coast will be detrimental to British Columbia as a whole.
If the present project is killed, a
railway will eventually be built
through to the northern coast. It
is by far the shortest route, and the
farmers and mine owners of the
north will demand it, despite the
parochial oraters of Vancouver.
Railway Problem Needs
Much Thought
There are many divergent views
as to the wisest policy regarding
the P. G. E. One is to abandon
the line altogether and perhaps use
the roadbed for a motor highway.
Another is toqptitinuethe road from
Quesnel northward to Prince
George and' from there into the
Peace River country. But Premier
Tolmie aud his predecesors have
been reluctant to embark on suoh an
ambitious project purely as a government enterprise. Opponents of
the Peace River extension claim
that tbe P. G. E. route is not the
logical one for southbound traffic
from that area, and that the natural flow would bo by the more
'direct route to the Pacific tidewater
at Prince Rupert or Stewart. It
is estimated that it would cost only
10 cents a bushel to move wheat
that way; twice that much to Vancouver by way of the P, G. E..
which is considerably longer haul.

Foreign  Demand  For
Copper Boosts Price
Though only a few thousand tons
of copper have been sold in the
domestic market in the week ending today, the tonnage being approximately the same as that of
two weeks ago, prices are well
maintained at 17c. for Eastern deliveries, and 17^c. in the Middle
West, and the trend still seems upward rather than downward. Copper is now two cents higher than
when wages were last increased,
and it is felt that a further increase
may be in order, in which case an
advance in copper prices might
result. Brass mills have been the
chief purchasers, their demand
being largely for April shipment,
though February, March, and May
have been represented as well.
Most consumers are now fairly well
covered through April, but have
yet to buy practically all of their
May requirements.
The foreign demand for copper
has been excellent, with the indications that 65,000 to 70,000 long
tons will be sold in that market this
month. Still more encouraging is
the great increase in foreign shipments, which, in January, will exceed by about 16 per cent the average of corresponding shipments for
the previous six months. Germany,
which fell back in its takings during the Ruhr strike period, has now
resumed its place as the leading
European buyer, and the consignments to France have also registered a healthy increase.—Engineering
and Mining Journal, February 2nd.

Forty-two years of service with
the Canadian Pacific Railway without having broken any of the company s rules or otherwise earned a
mark against himself is the unique
record held by Arthur W. Savage,
engineer, who has just retired on
pension. Mr. Savage, who is well
known throughout the Eastern
'Townships, fired the train that laid
the first steel on the line between
Sherbrooke and Farnham.
The old English Yuletide Festival
held recently at the Empress Hotel
ln Victoria, B.C., proved to be one
of the most popular events of last
year. Carols and yuletide music
were rendered, the ancient "Chester Mysteries" staged, and Dickens'
"Mrs. Wardle's Christmas Party"
was produced. The festival cul-
' minated In a ball at which some
seven hundred persons attended. It
is believed that plans are already
being made for a larger and better
celebration next year.
A change in telephone numbers
has drawn attention to the train
inquiry office ln the great Windsor
Street Station of the Canadian Pacific Railway In Montreal. The
girls who are or. duty there handle
each on an average of 200 calls an
hour and as many as 300 an hour
during rush times. They carry
most of the information In their
heads and seldom have to refer to
a time-table. They are asked
queer questions somet'mes. Recently someone asked, "When does
the afternoon begin," and the old
poser turned up. "What time does
the four o'clock train leave."
Dr. Knechtel, a farmer residing
about four miles east of Souris,
Manitoba, has about 6 000 bushels
of Reward wheat which he Is go'ng
to ship out all over Western Canada In two-bushel lots as soon as
the list of addresses arrives from
Ottawa—for the project is under the
supervision of the Dominion Government. As Is pretty generally
known, Reward wheat matures
about a week earlier than Marquis
and. for this reason, can be grown
further north. This early ripening
means, roughly, that.a new strip of
country 75 by 1.000 miles, is mado
s'.Tillable for wheat growing.

Steel Cars Now for Freight Service
C teel is replacing wood in freight service and seventy-
" fivo hundred of the new freight cars now on order
for the Canadian Pacific will set a new standard in
grain and general freight service. These cars are
not in replacement but in addition to the wood cars
already in use, and will furnish a greater margin
of safety, more speed and longer service while eliminating leakage.
They will have a capacity of 2,000 bushele of wheat
and will considerably speed up the movement of
grain. Rivetting of all joints and connections will
reduce to a minimum possibility of loss of grain
and the car itself will be more solid and will possess greater rigidity. t The roof of the car will be
steel as will also the whole structure, but the sides
will be wood lined inside.
Additional safety Will be provided by a new
type of truck having a cast steel frame. These truck
side frames which represent a new standard of Cana
dian Pacific equipment, are one integral casting.
Elimination of parts in the car proper is another •
noteworthy feature.
Dimensions of the car are 40 feet 9 inches in
length, 8 feet 7 inches high, and 8 feet, IVt inches
wide. They will have 5 foot side doors and a capacity
of 120,000 pounds.
The new cars represent an important advance in
railway freight transportation on this continent and
they have been developed more directly to keep pace
with the development of the west. In recent years crop
acreage has increased. Car loadings have increased in
like measure. Improved harvesting machinery has
speeded up delivery to the rails and necessitated still
more.efficient handling on the part of the railway
companies.
> Delivery of the new cars will be made in ample
time for the harvest of 1929 and the Canadian Pacific
may be expected to again break the record of crop
handling.

Stock Exchange Crowd
Needs Steadying
"All crowds must be steadied.
That is what leadership means, very
largely. And a Stock Exchange
crowd needs to be steadied almost
as much as a political crowd does.
"The aim of a wise, strong,
patriotic speculator is to make the
crowd steadier and more sensible.
And, incidentally, he gets well paid
for it.
"It is an odd fact of human nature
that when a price is high, we think
it is going to be higher; and when
it is low, we think it is going to be
lower." Herbert Casson in "Tips
on Finance."
Radios Cause Less Insanity
In Alaska
$2,000,000 Grain Elevator
For Hudson Bay
Hon. C. A. Dunning's announcement that a $2,000,000 public terminal elevator will be erected at
Fort Churchill is an evidence of the
federal government's confidence that
shipping wheat through the Hudson
Bay and Strait is a feasible proposition. The government is in possession of reports from a special band
of aviators who have spent the past
two winters studying weather and
ice conditions in Hudson Bay. They
have found that as far as their period of investigation covers, navigation is quite safe for several months
in the year.
There are now fewer insane patients in Alaska than at any time
since the Klondike gold rush. Insanity generally was described as caused by the long winters and isolation
from human society. Miners, trappers and reindeer herders were its
victims.
Radios and airplanes have reduced this malady, physicians declare.
Practically all the distant camps
have radios to tell of events around
the world and diffuse entertainment. Almost daily airplanes may
be seen in every section of the territory, bringing letters, newspapers,
and supplies to the most isolated
settlements.

Government May Provide
Iron and Steel Bounties
A bill providing for bounties for
production of iron and steel in British Columbia has been introduced
by the Minister of Mines. It repeats
a former act providing a bounty of
$3.00 a ton on pig iron produced
from ores mined in the province and
re-enacts that the measure is coupled with a further clause, giving
power to grant bounties of $1.50 a
ton on steel shapes manufactured
within the province. The purpose
of the new clause is to cover steel
manufactured from scrap iron.
