Christmas Tree &
Entertainment
Held at Alice
Arm
[Children of the Town Given
a Merry Time
The annual Christmas Tree and
I concert given to the ohildren of
Alice Arm, was held on Saturday
evening, at the Coliseum. At the
hour of  commencement,     whioh
[ was scheduled for 8 p.m.. the hall
was packed to the doors;
The Alice Arm children have in
1 the past years been lavishly entertained, but at no time have they
enjoyed themselves more fully than
they did on Saturday night.
The whole juvenile population of
the town was there with shilling,
j expectant and happy faces, and from
the time the orchestra started the
'' programme until they tucked their
toys away and started for home
they enjoyed every minute of the
time.
As in former years, the first part
I of the evening was devoted to
entertainment, and a large and var-
I iei programme was successfully
carried out. The chief participants
were theschool children who sang
chorusus, gave recitations, and drills
and also gave wonderful_exhibition_
of acting in various sketches staged
by them, the clever parts played by
jthe  children drawing rounds of
I applause from the audience.
The programme was drawing to
a close, when with a whoop, Santa
Claus jumped into the Hall, and
for about thirty minutes happiness
I reigned supreme as Santa handed
out his gifts.
A substantial supper consisting
of lots of good things to eat was
then served to everyone. The programme was' then completed and
the, floor Cleared for danoing, Here
was a chance for the adults to work
off their pent-up energy, and
everyone took advantage of the
opportunity. Lotsofjnusicwason
hand, and combined with lots of
people and happiness, everything
was perfect.
The Entertainment on Saturday
was typical of any mining oamp,
where the people have to join
together and make their own
pleasure or they don't get it. A
special feature of the evening was
the artistically decorated drop our-
tain on the stage, with its witty*
advertising and fancy drawing, the
work of the versatile Sam Winner-
strom.
The danoing, singing and acting
of the ohildren was perfeot, and ■ by
the quality of the exhibtions given
it was'shown that a lot of hard
Work had been necessary, both by
pupils and instructors to obtain
such good results. :.''■■',

on the committees and who were
responsible for the success of the
evening, were: Refreshments, Mrs.

Big Attendance to Bid Farewell to Popular Citizen

farewell dance in honor of Mr. E.
R. Oatman, of the Royal Bank staff
who is leaving shortly for Vancou- .

to all uur leaaers
Christmas with its joy and mirth
has gone again and all of us are
back in harness, engaged in our
everyday occupations. It is a
pretty safe bet that everyone in
j Anyox and Alice Arm spent a
Merry Christmas, for everyone
seemed to be on pleasure bent, and
happy faces were in evidence everywhere. Christmas Day is one day
in the year that all join in celebrating, and this year was no exception
to the general rule.
Prosperity Ahead.
A few more days and we shall
have entered upon another year,
and the present year will pass into
history. The present year has been
a prosperous one for this district,
but the coming year promises to be
still more prosperous. Not anything can stand still, whether it is
an individual, a big business company, or a nation, we either have
to go ahead or go back, and the
signs for the coming year point
straight ahead. During the past
year the Granby Co have spent
a large amount of money on construction work, at their Anyox
plant and at Maple Bay and tbe
completion of these projects will
provide the district with several
valuable assets. The big plant
at Anyox has been operated to
capacity throughout the year, and
the development work going on at
Maple Bay is probably laying the
foundation of another big mining
industiy, from which the district
will profit in the years to
come. The low price of
copper throughout the year has
been disappointing to producers,
but let us hope that peace and
production will shortly reign in
Europe, and place the demand for
copper at the head of the list of
metals instead of at the bottom.
The present year has been, for
Alice Arm the most prosperous
since the Dolly Varden mine closed
down, and next year this prosperity
will be considerably increased.
Logging operations are being planned on a far larger scale than was
the case this year and the logging
industry alone will mean increased
prosperity for the town. In addition to the logging, however, there
will also be an increase in mining
The famous Dolly Varden is expected to be again operating during
1924 and in addition to this property, plans are being made for the
development of several other properties in the district. It is also
becoming more widely known
throughout the mining world that
the Dolly Varden is not the
only worth-while property in the
district, and the coming year will
probably fully prove this assertion
as other properties become developed. Alice Arm has the mineral wealth, and it is slowly coming
to the front. Slowly at the present
time, but as time goes on and more
shipping mines come into existence
the pace will be increasingly faster
each year, until Alice Arm takes
her place among the leading .mining
camps of the continent. The year
1924 promises to be a better year
than 1923, and we should all work
together to make each coming year
more prosperous than the preceding one. Alice Arm is our home
and the cooperation* of everyone is
necessary for the welfare of the
town.

Provincial Game Act to
Be Amended
Victoria,—The time for more
drastio trapping regulations has
come, aocording to Attorney-General Manson, who introduced amendments into the house last week
designed to tighten up the rules
for the use of traps and the practice
of trapping. Investigation by the
Game Conservation Board under
Chairman Jackson last summer
showed that suoh inroads had been
made on the number of fur^bearing
animals in the Province that they
were threatening to become extinct,
Under the proposed amendments
to the Game Act, no aliens, except
bonaflde farmers, will be allowed to
trap. All trap lines will have to be
registered and the trapper will be
placed in, the position of a game
conservation official. He will have
to observe the law strictly and in
return will be protected from other
trappers.
It will be illegal for anyone to
.have tin prime pelts of any fur-bearing animal in his possession. Minimum fire-arms licence for aliens
will be 10 instead of, $2.50 as at
present. Big game hunters will
have to be accompanied by guides.
All guides will be licenced and will
have to prove themselves thoroughly
acquainted with the game regulations before being given tickets.
This is aimed at the prevention of
the reckless slaughter of game.
All pump guns will have to be
permanently plugged.
Indians will be allowed to shoot
male deer over one year for food
purposes, At present they are
allowed to shoot both bucks and
does for that purpose.

Special to the Herald
Copper demand is moderate in
, volume and buying is quiet.
Prompt 'copper can be had at
slight concessions, but large producers are holding at 13£ cents
delivered or higher, and only
second-hands or custom smelters
seem willing to sell under that
price. \
Germany will consume only a
fourth as much American oopper
as normally, or 3000 instead of
12,000 tons a month, in the' opinion
of American copper exporters.
Reasons for the decline is the
cripplipg of the Ruhr industry,
making it difficult to begin production on a large soale for
months: capital shortage making
it impossible for manufacturers to
build up large stocks of copper and
operate on credit; reduced domestic consumption as a result of less
housebuilding and decreased use of
electric appliances of all sorts, and
finally Reich's ceasing to make
further reparations deliveries in
kind, such as looomotives, machinery, etc
Ruhr manufacturers have practically no stocks of oopper on
hand, and are buying ho American
copper, German eleotroteohnical
works, mostly around Berlin, still
have some business, but are operating only at half normal output.
Locomotive building is coming to a
standstill for want of foreign
orders, and a penniless railroad
system at home.

Premier Mining Co. may
Build Railroad
Portland Canal News
An interesting rumour is current
in local business circles purporting
to have enaminated from an
authentic source, to the effect that
the Premier Gold Mining Co
intend first thing in the spring, to
commence the construction of a
railway, from tidewater, just
south of the mouth of the Salmon
river, to their contemplated new
1,000-ton mill on the east bank' of
Casoade creek..
Just what foundation there is
for this report, the News is not in
a position to say, for it came in too
late to be authenticated, but in
view of the fact that the Premier
is known to be contemplating the
construction of large reduction
works at or near the portal of the
long tunnel, commenced last summer from 13-mile, it would appear
that the logical manner for handling the product of such mill
would be the construction of a
railway. * Therefore the story is
reported, as its necessity makes it
appear to be founded on fact.
