Benefit Concert Breaks
All Records
The Benefit Concert held in the
Reoreation Hall on Friday, January 28th. will go down in the
history of the camp as the most
successful events staged in Anyox.
The Hall was full to seating capacity which accomodates 400. and
all those present spoke highly of
the endeavours of the different
artiste taking part in the programme, and needless to say they
were sincere in their praises whioh
was very much appreciated by
those taking part.
The programme was started by
Chairman Mr. Jas. R. Mitchell,
who explained to the audience the
object of those responsible for the
concert in donating the proceeds to
relieve cases of need in. the com
munity.
After the chairman's remarks an
Overture was rendered "A Nicht
wi' Burns by S. Steele's orchestra,
whioh was thoroughly enjoyed.
This was accompanied by applause
for au encore which was given.
It is hoped that this orchestra will
continue to remain together, S.
Steele, trombone (leader); S. Armstrong, 1st. violin; G. Leslie, ditto;
% Brooks, ditto; S. Peel, euphonium; 0. J. Hutchings, drums; J.
Peel, piano; C. Hutchison, olar-
ionet: W. Ross, 2nd. violin; H.
Lingren, ditto;   J. Galloway, cello.
The Overture was followed by a
song "Corporal John Bartholamy,"
J. L. Anderson. This was also
a Saxo-
by
encored. The next was
phone Duet, "Its Lonesome in Bluebird Land," given by J. Buntain
and S. Jones, which was also
encored.
Mrs. Pinokney then sang "Absent"
whioh was excellently rendered
and like those previously delivered
and those that followed this number was greeted with enthusiasum
and followed by an encore.
A dance was then given by
Miss Kathleen Bruggy in the
nature of a "Highland Fling."
She was accompanied on the piano
by her sister, Miss Irene Bruggy.
Miss Kathleen Bruggy also gave
two other turns later in the evening, namely "Original Dance
Stunts" aud a piano solo, Intermezzo from Caveirlleria R'usti-
canna. These numbers were
greatly enjoyed and proved quite
an inspiration to the juveniles
present, to attempt to duplicate
these accomplishments themselves
in the future. All three numbers
received great applause.
The seventh turn on the programme was "Annie Laurie" by
Tom Pinokney ou his one string
fiddle, and a good many who have
had the pleasure of hearing Tom
before still wonder how he oan
manage to get such excellent
musio out of a one string instrument.
W. F. Eve sang "Mona," followed by a recitation "Devil-May-
Care," by Harry Gourlay. The
popular chairman, Jas. R. Mitchell

Fast Hockey in Alice
Arm League
Slightly oolder weather prevailing during the early part of the
week was responsible for a renewal
of skating on the Alice Arm Rink.
Three games of hockey were
played by teams of the local league
eacli team playing two games each.
The first game was on Tuesday
evening, when the Timber Wolves
and Wildoats met. The loggers
were in lighting trim. They upset
the winning streak of the all-conquering Wildcats, handing them a
defeat of 7 goals to 5.
The game opened with a burst
of speed on the part of the Timber
Wolves and they hit a ' dizzy pace
for two periods, which completely
surprised opponents and fans. They
were a hard checking, hard shooting aggregation, taking advantage
of every opportunity, and at one
time it seemed as though the score
would be muoh heavier.
The Wildcats rallied in the third
period, and bent every effort to win
They scored three goals in the fifteen minutes, and were causing
their opponents considerable anxiety when the whistle caused a
cessation of hostilities.
The outstanding feature of the
game was the marked improvement
of the Timber Wolves. They have
a team that shows co-operation in
their play, plus hard work.
Timber Wolves: J. Hanna,
goal; Smith, defense; Crompton,
Erickson, Hutton, forwards.
Wildcats: P. Williamson, gull;

The game on Wednesday evening
proved another surprise, when the
Wildcats and Tigers battled for
three thrilling periods, without a
single goal being scored. It was
decided to play live minutes over
time providing a goal was uot
scored previously. The game had
only been resumed two minutes,
when Gus Anderson got through
and cinched the game for the Wiid
oats with a terrific drive.
The game was a thriller from
start to finish, with every player
on each team keyed up to break
ing point striving to place the puck
in the net. Both individual and
combination play was futile.
Rushes by the forwards were
broken up almost as soon as commenced. The game was marked
by hard checking, numerous tumbles, aud a copious expenditure of
energy and perspiration.

The Timber Wolves and Tigers
were the contestants on Thursday
evening. The loggers, flushed by
their recent victory over the Wild
cats were rarin' to go. They
jumped into the game in typical
logger style, full of vitality and
determined to win. They emerged
victorious with a soore of 5-1.
The game was not up to the
high standard of the previous
evenings. The ice was heavy and
the Tigers showed the strain of
Wednesday's encounter. The
loggers evidently deserved to win,
but the Tigers had more of the
play than the soore indioates.
The Timber Wolves are improving with each game, and if it is
possible to carry on they will be
come serious contenders for championship honors.

E. MOSS, Editor and Publisher.
Why is it that some mine oVners
and promotors are everlasting indulging in more or less meritorious litigation? Why do certain operators
and promoters find it necessary to
run "house organs" to partly boost
their own schemes and partly knock
the operations of their neighbors?
Why should columns in an English
paper be devoted to an attack of a
Vancouver "Structure expert" (to
quote himself) on the managing engineer of the property adjoining one
in which he is interested?
We do not know the answer and
•the articles we have read, though
full of complaints and questionable
statements, fail to supply it. In
fact most of the printed remarks
were better unpaid.
The interest of mining men are
identical. Attacks through the press
of one man against another in the
same business are apt to create, in
the minds of the public, a distrust of
all engaged in that business. It had
been the policy of the politicians, a
sorry example.
It is unnecessary to say that the
bucking of mining enterprises by
other mining men has seriously retarded development in this province.
It has kept both local and outside
capital out of the field.
Truly the knockers succeeded in
leaving their victims the poorer, with
no gain to themselves.—Mining and
Industrial Record.
Orientals Own Considerable
Property in B. C.
The Oriental population of 15.
C. is approximately 46,000
or eighty one for every thousand
whites, a recently completed survey
of all parts of the province has disclosed. Tlie report, which was
made public recently by the Department of Agriculture, states
tho Orientals are increasing rapidly
but Japanese are making the
greatest gains.
Real property held by Orientals
is assessed at $11,500,000 and more
than three thousand of them are
licenced to carry on business of
almost all kinds. The attendance
of oriental children in the schools
lias increased at a startling rate
representing 3.83 per cent of the
school population and still increasing.

Big Reindeer Industry Now
Established in Alaska
From the original stock of 1280
animals imported from Siberia over
a period of ten years up to 1902,
the reindeer in Alaska have now
increased to about 350,000 animals,
distributed in 110 herds.
In addition to the numbers in
present herds, it is estimated that
about 125,000 have been killed for
food and clothing. Dining the
period from 1918 to 1926 more than
1,875,000 pounds of reindeer meat
was shipped from Alaska, the total
for 1923 being nearly 200,000
pounds, for 1924 about 375,000
pounds, and for 1925 approximately
680,000 pounds.
British Trade   Shows   Big
Drop
Great Britain had a huge adverse
trade balance allowing for re-exports
of more than ^475,000,000 sterling
last year. It is the biggest adverse
trade balance since 1919 according
to Board of Trade figures today. The
total foreign trade, imports and
exports combined, dropped ^228,-
000,000 below last year. The situation is being ascribed largely to the
coal strike.
