Ice Carnival at
Alice Arm
Races and Dancing   Again
Indulged In
The seoond loe Carnival of the
season was held at the Alice Arm
Skating Rink, on Saturday evening, and on this oooasion the ladies
were the hosts.
The affair was even a greater
succes than the previous week, and
the ladies certainly lived up to
their enviable reputation of being
energetic workers, organizers and
fun providers. For the success of
the evening, great credit is due to
Mrs. H. F. Kergin, who was manager and organizer.
The programme was along simi-
lines of the previous week, exoept
that comic, novelty and relay races
predominated. A large crowd was
in attendance, and great enthusiasm prevailed among the contestants of the races. Several of the
races were real funny and brought
roars of laughter from the spectators.
A speoial feature of the evening
was an exhibition of fancy skating
by Mr. B. Jones. The skating of
Mr. Jones was a treat not very
often obtainable in these parts, and
everyone hopes that he will give
similar exhibitions before the
season is past.
At the conclusion of the programme, snpper, consisting of
doughnuts and hot coffee was served
by the ladies.
Dancing was then indulged in to
the tune of the excellent orchestra
consisting of 0. Hutchison, clarinet
J. Fiva, guitar; L. Johnson, mandolin.
Dancing concluded a few minutes
before midnight, with everyone
well pleased with the evening's

rangemets, and was ably assisted
by Rev. J. Herdman.
A special feature of the evening

New Government Buildings
At Anyox
Through the courtesy of Mr!
John Conway, stipendary magistrate and government agent for
Anyox, the Herald's reporter recently made an inspection of the
new building. He was impressed
with the roominess of the whole
struoture and the attention given
by the contractors to details.
One great point about the Court
House is its aocoustic properties,
which are perfect. The Government Agent's offices are large and
well appointed, while the accomodation provided for Constable A.
R. Dryden is excellent.
Anyox Minstrel Troupes
Are Training
Both the Moose and Elks are
busily engaged in perfecting this
new form of entertainment which
will be warmly welcomed in
Anyox. At the time of writing
we do not possess the data on the
Elks' troupe. As far as the Moose
are concerned they will put on a
troupe of fourteen performers with
orchestra. Rehearsals are underway and when letter perfeot, the
Moose Minstrels will make their
bow to Anyox audiehoes.
Progress Made on Union
Church Manse
During the past two weeks
Messrs. Greer, Beatty & Douglas
have been forging ahead with the
Manse for the Union Church, and
Rev. Herdman should soon be in
possession of his new home if they
keep up the same rate of progress.

Doo. Simmons and Mrs. Simmons
are also at the Granby Bay Hotel.
We noticed "Doo" playing a vigorous game of basketball recently we
are glad he still retains his old form
and has not left his basketball ambitions behind.
Mr. George Brown of the Granby
Store pogseses a remarkable "Air-
dale terrier" the most peculiar
point about it is viz. it's color. Our
correspondent lost a bet on this
during the week by staking on the
"black." . Will George tell us the
colour of the dye?
Mr. Noel Ballion's strenuous
training in the snow the past few
weeks has evidently had effect.
His showing at the ' Gym." whilst
playing for the Rovers was excellent, keep it up!
Mr. and Mrs. A. Grimaldi left
on the Prince Rupert for Vancouver. Mr. Grimaldi having relinquished his job at the Mine, we understand he will return to Anyox
after a vacation.
Who was it that said that Mr.
George Lace is the best dancer in
Anyox? He seems to have very
nearly "hit the truth."
Mr. Frank Gigot is baok again
in harness, we wish him the best of
luok and a complete recovery.
On Monday night, the B. P. O.
Elks elected new officers for the
coming year. Mr. Ed. Waterman

Tuxis Boys vs. Coke Plant
Three games of basketball were
on tap at the Gym. on Friday.
All were close and exciting and full
of action. The first game brought
together the Tuxis and the Coke
Plant which resulted in a win for
the former by 30 to 20. The Tuxis
boys were again in the lead in the
first half as they were in their game
with the Rovers but weakened in
the final minutes of play. Too much
bunching of players seemed to be
the main fault of this team. The
guards do not check their men
close enough.

High School vs. Bluebirds
The second game was between
the Bluebirds and the High School,
the Bluebirds winning by the score
of 13 to 11. A rally in the last few
minutes of play almost put the
School on top. The High School
girls seem to be coming along
splendidly and are, showing improvement on every new appearance on the floor.

A very successful dance was held
by the ladies of the Loyal Order of

Married Men Win in a
Fast Game
Owing to the mild weather only
one hockey game has been played
on the loca] rink since our last
issue. Thi« game was played
between the married and single,
men of the town, and was the first
of a series of games to decide the
While this was the only game
there was perhaps, as much hard
work and puck chasing condensed
into it as would constitute three
ordinary games.
It was a torrid, hectic game from
the time the starting whistle blew
until the final shriek ended a
thrilling game in which the married men came off victors with a
score of 4-2.
It was a ding-dong battle of
brilliant rushes and energetic checking throughout. All rules went to
the boards, as so did some of the
players with a little assistance.
Both teams strained ev£ry*)iis_ue to
assert their superiojjtyf'but the
married men were'tne first to score
and they kept the lead, never being
seriously in danger of defeat. The.
single team, however, were not out
in full strength or a different story
may have to be told.
For the winners, T. W. Falconer
Gus. Anderson, and Geo. Bruggy
were the shining lights, while for
the single men, Charlie Drennan
played a wonderful game. He
never spared himself a minute
of play, aud scored both goals
obtained by his team. S. Wickwire
in goal gave a wonderful exhibition
of stopping the rubber.
The teams were: Married, G.
Bruggy, goal; R. F. McGinnis, G.

Single: S. Wickwire, goal; C.

ALICE   ARM   AND   ANYOX   HERALD,   Alice  Abm,   Saturday, Februuary 2, 1924
Definite Policy of Immigration (or
Canadian National Railways
WHEN, a little more than a
year ago, Sir Henry W.
Thornton, K. B. E., was
chosen to head the Canadian National    Railways, ,._,_,._.„,.,„„„,„
one of his first
acts was to put
into motion machinery for aiding in the colonization and development of Canada, particularly
along the lines of
the National System, He realized
that one of the
crying needs of
Canada was for
more population,
and he has since
been quoted, on
several occasions
as saying that if
Canada had a
population of
twenty-five mil-
Ion people, Canada would have
no railway problem.
The    organiza-
tion of a depart- Dr. W.
ment to look after colonization and
development was entrusted by Sir
Henry to Mr. W. D. Robb, Vice-
President, and Mr, Robb at once
proceeded to build up the necessary
organization to look after this most
important national work. Investigations, conferences and careful
planning gradually brought into
being an effective department, the
effort of the year culminating in
the engagement of Dr. \V. J. Black,
Deputy Minister of Immigration
and Colonization in the Federal
Government, as Manager of the
Colonization and Development Department of the Canadian National
Railways; with headquarters ■ in
London. England, That was early
in .the Fall of 1923. Dr. Black proceeded at once to Great Britain,
where he spent some weeks carrying out a series of investigations.
These completed, he returned to
Canada and a general conference
of all officers of the department
was called and a definite plan of
colonization and development was
drawn un and announced. This
was the first definite announcement
on immigration to be announced
in Canada.
Dr. Black's Career
In engaging Dr. Black, the Canadian National Railways secured
an officer who is probably better
acquainted with the immigration
needs of Canada, and the best
methods of remedying those needs,
than any other man in the country. All his life he has been connected with the argricultural industry and has run the gauntlet of
all its intricate phases. He was
born and brought up on a farm in
Dufferin County, Ontario, and in
1902 graduated from the Ontario
Agricultural College with a Toronto University degree. At his
graduation he was appointed editor of the "Farmers' Advocate,"
Winnipeg, Manitoba, and he held
this post for two years. In 1905
he joined the Government of Manitoba as Deputy Minister of Agriculture, a post which he left the
following year to became President
of the Manitoba Agricultural College. He remained in this important position until 1916, when he became Commissioner of Agriculture
for Canada. At the conclusion of
the Great War in 1918, Dr. Black
was appointed Chairman of the
Soldiers' Settlement Board of Canada, a position he held until his
appointment, in 1921, as Deputy
Mini'ster of Immigration and
Colonization for Canada.
Dr. Black is a man who is thoroughly respected, both for his
opinions and his achievements,
throughout Canada.   He carries a
r  __, v„v„. lasting and gen-
w,«.»:»««»™«.. u._e   enthusiasm
into his work, and
as a quiet but eloquent and convincing speaker
he is well fitted
to broadcast the
message of his
important mission.
The Policy.
There are seven
points to the programme which
has received the
approval of Sir
Henry W. Thornton, and the principles of policy
will be placed into
effect immed-
iately. Dr, Black
sailed for England again on
January 5th, and
on his arrival in
J. Black London   his   de
partment commenced to function
actively. The thorough character
of the policy can be judged from a
recapitulation of the seven principles, which are as follows:
1—To influence the immigration
and satisfactory settlement in
Canada of the largest possible
number of people of productive
capacity that the country can
absorb and  assimilate.
9—To contribute to the dissemination of information concerning the vast and extensive natural resources of the Dominion and the widespread opportunities for industrial development, so that capital may be
attracted from other countries
and invested where enterprises
will be legitimately rewarded.
Q—To promote the land settlement of new Canadians under
conditions that will ensure the
maximum possibility of success in their farming operations, and enable them to enjoy such social and religious
institutions as are necessary to
individual happiness and contentment.
A—To encourage improvement in
agriculture, that more diversified methods may be employed
in farming, and that crop,
livestock, and dairy production
may be increased in accordance with market demands and
Pj—To assist by organized effort
in the immigration of young
people of desirable type and
character, especially from
Great Britain, and in their
placement in respectable rural
homes where they may become
qualified to participate in constructive activities and acquire
citizenship of distinct value to
g—To aid in the development of
jiew opportunities for service
and to facilitate every effective
means of selecting immigrants
physically fit and anxious for
7—To co-operate with the Federal
and Provincial Governments
and business organizations
throughout the Dominion in
promoting all measures calculated to contribute toward an
increase in immigration of
adaptable people, and in their
settlement under the f most
favorable conditions possible. '

Basketball Games
at Anyox
Continued from page 1,
in this game and it strikes us that
the rules which apply to basketball
should be more strictly enforced,
mainly the rule that states when a
player makes four personal fouls he
must retire from the floor and be
replaoed by a substitute. This rule
we understood is used in all games
at Prince Rupert and with success
and if they oan use it successfully
in Rupert there is no reason why it
cannot be put into force here also
Mr. B. E. Crawford refereed the
games in a very satisfactory manner, much credit is due him for the
able manner he handled the whistle
in the Senior contest, but in order
to use the four personal foul rule
successfully the score keeper has to
co-operate with the referee and call
his attention to the player who has
made four such fouls.
Elks: Craggs, Williscroft, Robertson, Lee, Greenwell, and Cody.

Alice Arm Building
Changes Hands
The big sawmill building formerly owned by Mr. C. P. Riel has
changed hands, the purchaser being
Mr. Al. Falconer. The building is
30 feet wide and 100 feet in length
aud is two stories in height. Mr.
Falconer will continue to operate
the sawmill on the ground floor,
but before leaving for Vancouver
last week had not decided as to
the future use of the upper floor.
It is probable however that apartments will be built at one end, and
the remainder of the floor used for
a meeting hall and dances etc. as
soon as conditions warrant.
