ad the satisfaction of seeing their
leain beat the Alice Arm stick

I. The Anyox team were in fine
jorm and played an aggressive
jjame, they had the local team
guessing, especially in the second
beriod. They played more in
'inionson than their opponents
;«id also threw more energy into
lobe game;
In the first stages of the game
neither side held the advantage,
[and both goal keepurs were getting lots of work, to do. Down

with a long drive from centre and
ihe first period closed with Anyox

It was very plain in the second
eriod that Anyox were out to win
br give Alice Arm an awful tussle.
|riiey threw every ounce of energy
hto the  game  and  also  played
jood combination.     They  scored1

iam bewildered.   Wilson was the
rst to score and Carlson repeated
fine performance in a few minutes,

Anyox players appear to have
perfected dashing combination
play that baffles the defense and in
the second period their dashing
play had the Arm team faded, and
toward the closing stages of the
period there was only one team in
the picture.' Their defense is improving fast and Waterman in goal
was a tower of strength to his
team.
The Alice Arm team lacked
| unionson throughout the game.
; The forwards could not get together and the defence were playing
too far ahead and no one dropping
back to take their place. Al. Falconer, who soored both goals play-
jbd a hard game. Oatman also
played a brilliant game on several
Proposed Big
Storage Dam
At Anyox
The Granby Consolidated Mining
Smelting & Power Co., Ltd. are
planning to build a new storage
dam at Anyox. Contractors
arrived last week and left to look
over the site. The dam will have
a storage capacity of 25,000 acre-
feet and will cost in the neighbourhood of $350,000. The proposed
dam will be built about one and a
half miles above the present dam,
on Falls Creek and will ensure a
plentiful supply of water throughout the winter, thus eliminating
the costly operation of the oil
burning plant at the No. 2 power
house.
While nothing definitely has yet
been settled there is no doubt that
the project will be carried through.
The contractors who arrived last
week to inspect the site and who
will probably tender on the work,
are: Mr. J. S. Connell, of Vancouver, who was in charge of the
building of the Pacific 'Mills' Plant
at Ocean Falls; W. F. Buell, of
Seattle; C. W. Allen, of Montreal;
and W. Tubby, of San Francisco.
The above contractors inspected the
site and left Anyox on Thursday's
boat.

Burns' Anniversary Concert at Anyox
The anniversary of Scotland's
national bard was celebrated in
Anyox, on January 25th, when
the Beoreation Hall, was packed to
capacity by an audience who enjoyed to the full the concert held
under the auspices of the Union
Church. Mr. Geo. P. McColl, the
promoter and' the artists who
took part in the programme are to
be oomplimented upon providing
suoh an excellent evening's enter
tainment.       ,, >
When Piper McKay played, the
"Cock o' the North" one would
have imagined that all Anyox was
Scotch by the noise that marked
their appreciation of the skirl of
the bagpipes. All the artists were
applauded and all had to respond
with encores. Jeamie Twaddle
did Harry Lauder in the manner
born.

ANYOX SCHOOLS
Four enjoyable sessions of the
Anyox High School Club have
afforded its members the notable
privilege of addresses by distinguished lecturers—revealed decided
talent in literature and music—and
provided genuine mirth in games
of skill and group contests.
The members recently elected to
office, were: President, Dick Bal-
lentine; VicerPresident, Jack
McColl and Corresponding Secretary, Edna Haslett (all re-elected
by acclamation,) as also Becording
Secretary Katherine Hoffman and
Treasurer Tom Bagwell were
inaugurated into office, on Friday
last, amid the hearty cheeks of all
present.
Miss May Nord and Miss Mary
Macknight, retiring officers who so
ably supported our efficient Presi
dent, Dick Ballentine in the past
term, have merited the respect and
gratitude of the entire club.
No small success has attended
Miss Haslett's unfailing participation in the essay contests, which in
some cases especially have been
distinguished by unusually able
work. Misses Anderson, Nord,
Macknight, Mackay and Mr.
Ballentine submitted appreciated
contributions.
Mr. Bagwell's twelve cylinder
speech supporting the affirmative
of a resolution that the automobile
offers better sport than automibi-
lious recreation, scored a marked
success.
The thanks of all members are
herewith respectfully tendered to
Miss Leitch, Mr. Southam, and
Misses Macknight, Thompson and
Mackay. Their contributions to
the music programme enhanced the
pleasure afforded by the meetings
of the High School Club.
Development Work
Proceeding on the
Lion Group
,The development work on the
Lion Group, which-is situated
about 2J miles west of the town of
Alice is progressing very satisfactory. The lead has been cross-cut
at a distance of 100 feet from the
portal, the depth obtained being 70
feet. In cross-cutting the lead,
several small veins of high grade
ore were encountered, carrying
native silver. It is the intention
of the owners to follow the hanging
wall for a distance of about 30 feet
in order to get under the surface
showings from which samples
assaying 660 ozs. silver per ton
have been taken.
Work on shipping the 100 tons
of ore from the Esperanza mine is
well under way, and is being piled
up at the foot of the hill awaiting
transportation to the wharf. The
ore will be shipped to the Anyox
smelter.
Wm. McLean and Angus McLeod
are busy doing assessment work on
the Surprise Group for the Alios
Arm Holdings Co, who have an
option on the property. Thkt
property practically joins the Dolly
Varden mine and lies on the East
side of the Kitsault Biver.

The Granby Consolidated Mining, Smelting & Power Co. Ltd,
have already started the ball rolling
for a season of activity in this
district by proposing to build a
large storage dam at Anyox at an
estimated cost of' $350,000, and
the company are to be congratulated on the aggressive policy and
foresight shown by them. The
building of the dam at Anyox will
mean a lot to the district; in the
first place it means that a lot of
extra money will be put into circulation; it shows that in the
opinion of the Granby Co., copper
will at least maintain its present
value and that the big plant will
continue to operate. Every big
addition to the plant at Anyox
helps to attract the attention of
mining companies to this district,
and Alice Arm on account of its
close proximity will benefit more
than any other place from the
present policy of the Granby Co.
Great credit is reflected on the
management of the company for
the manner in which they are
pulling the company out of the mud
and placing it on dry land again.
It is a well known fact that the
company were nearly submerged
about two years ago and that
drastic action was needed if the
plant was to continue operations.
It has been a hard fight both for
the employees and the company,
but the worst phase now seems to
be over and the company is slowly
gaining ground, and the Anyox
plant will continue to operate to
the benefit of the district and the
whole of the province.
Approximately 154,000 electors
of British Columbia voted at the
last federal election.
Conservatives secured 48.2 per
cent, of the vote cast and 53.9 per
oent. of the representation in the
House of Commons. '
i
Liberals obtained 32.7 per cent,
of the vote cast and 30.7 per cent,
of the representation.
Progressives received 7.8 ' per
cent, of the vote cast and 15.4 per
cent, of the representation.
' Labor, Socialist and Independent candidates received 11.3 per
cent of the vote cast, but did not
elect a candidate.
The Conservatives polled some
74,000, the Liberals 50,000, the
Progressives 12,000, Labor 7000,
Socialists 10,000 and 875 Independent votes were given.
Sensational Hockey
Game at Alice Arm
Mules defeated in Corrall
By the Score of 5-4.
Jack Anderson's Antiques defeated Steve Dumas' Mules, on
Saturday, January 21st, in one of
the most sensational games ever
witnessed in the north. Critics of
the game claimed that had the
Mules been properly stabled and
cinched they would have had a
walk-over, however, the score was
5-4 in favor of the Antiques.
But the Mules are still grazing
around Anderson's back yard and
if Dumas can train them to back
up instead of always taking the
offensive there will be a different
story to tell next time.
The news is going around town
that Njel Forbes, of the Mules, has
moved bed and baggage onto the
ice, and is going to camp there
until the Antiques are beaten.
There was a very large crowd to
witness the game, and in the last
period an "old mule by the name of
Don, who happened to be from
Missouri, could stand it no longer,
he took to the ice, his ears cocked,
and scored a goal for his chums.
He piled three of the Antiques on
the ice, and the referee wanted to
back him upon the fence, but he
bucked, and being an ugly looking
sport to tackle, he let him carry
on.
One of the Antiques known in
the family circle as "Dozie," scored
four goals for the Antiques. He
worked so hard upon Dumas, the
Mules goalkeeper, that he had him
in the air most of the time .and
when in that position he would
shoot the puck into the net.
Butler, of the Antiques, took one
of the Mules by the ears in an
effort to apply a strangle hold in
one of the mix-ups, but that hold
being barred, Butler was penalized.
However, boys and girls, don't
miss the next game; it w^ll be a
bear.
Bruggy, of the Antiques goal,
defeated Dumas of the Mules, in a
200 yards dash. Dumas was 90
per cent, physique and Bruggy 100
per cent, mentality. Brains won
over strength and Dumas came in
a close second.
Announcement as to next game
will be posted in the Kitsault Cigar
Store.
Following is a line-up of the
teams:
Mules Position Antiques
Dumas goal Bruggy

Forbes defence Butler

Fast Basket Ball
Games at Anyox
Three good games of Basketball
were staged at the Keoreation
Hall, on Thursday, January 19th*
In the opening game the Blacks

The next game was between the
Beach and Elks. The score at
half time was 9-7 in favor of the
Beach. After half-time the Beaoh
had slightly the better of it, and
ran out winners by a score of
24-19. The win places the Beach
at the head of the League.
The teams were: Beach: forwards,
Martin (4) and Dow (12); centre,
Robertson (8); guards, Bagwell

figures which show the value of production for successive five-year periods: For all years to 1895, inclusive,
$94,547,241 for five years, 1896-1900, $57,605,967; for five years, 1901-1905, $96-509,968; for five years, 1906-

even prospected; 300,000 square miles of unexplored mineral bearing land are open for prospecting.
The Mining Laws of this Province are more liberal and the fees lower than those of any other Province
in the Dominion, or any Colony in the British Empire.
Mineral locations are granted to discoverers for nominal fees.

Crown Grants.

Cutting down on advertising is like
conserving on coal on a locomotive.
Less coal means less steam; too much
economy of steam is liable to stop
the train.
