Rivard, Accused of Killing Committed for
A shooting affray that ended in
khe death of William Ritchie,
•ccurred at Stewart on New Year's
norning at 2.30 a.m.
Ritchie is supposed to have met
his death at the hands of Henry
Rivard, during a New Year's party
at the latter's rooming house.
A coroner's inquest was held on
'.uesday, when an open verdict was
brought in, there being no witness
o the actual shooting. Witnesses
examined were Paddy O'Donald and
)onald McLeod, who were members
of the party with whom Henry
Rivard, accused of the killing was
supposed to have had an altercation.
Rivard was given a preliminary
hearing on Wednesday evening,
before Stipendary Magistrate Scarlett. He was committed for trial at
the spring assizes to be held in
Prince Rupert, and ordered to be
confined to Okalla prison until that
time. No material evidence was
forthcoming beyond that given at
the coroner's inquest. Following
the trial, accused was taken south
on the steamship Prince Rupert on
A regrettable feature of the shoot-
is that it is understood that Ritchie
^ was not embroiled in any way in
the quarrel which was in progress.
He was of a very quiet dispos-
tion, and was unfortunately struck
with a flying bullet.
Reports already published state
that the murdered man was"Blackie
Ritchie" well known in Alice Arm
during construction of the Dolly
Varden railway, but so far these
reports have not been verified.
Rivard was in Alice Arm during
• construction days, and was employed as camp cook,   later  going   to

''Happy New Year." Fire crackers also roared their welcome to
young 1928.
An abundance of dainty refreshments were provided, whioh assisted in restoring the efforts of the
energetic dancers.
The New Year was heartily welcomed by the people of Alice Arm,
-Mid it should reciporate by making

W. F. Eve and Ladies' Auxiliary
for their good work in providing

The B. P. O. Elks' Annual New
Year's dance, held in the Beach
Gymnasium on Saturday evening
December 31st., was a great success
both in size of attendance and enjoyment. Some three hundred persons were present and after dancing
from nine in the evening until two
in the morning they were loath to
leave. Novelties in the nature of
paper hats and confetti added to the
fun of the affair. The hall was
beautifully decorated with the Elks'
colors of purple and white, and also
with green bows, etc.
Splendid music was rendered by
the Moose Orchestra which consisted of J. Varnes, J. Webster, H.
Ward,'T. Evans,  and R.  Brooks.
Refreshments in the nature of a
turkey supper was served in the
dining room at 11.15 p.m. The
dance was voted one of the outstanding events of the year and
fittingly ended the old year and
brought in the new.

The present year ushered in
what will probably be the most
prosperous era the Dominion ever
experienced. At no time in its
history has the outlook been so
bright or the spirits of the people
so bouyant. Canada is bounding
ahead in every line of industry.
Agriculture is at its highest peak
and the value of the produce of
our fertile fields promises large increases, especially as new territories
are opened for settlers, more especially the vast Peace River district. This year promises to witness the announcement of the building of a railway to tap this treasure
house of the west, which, when
done, will benefit everyone in
Western Canada. The birth of
the New Year saw the mining industry creating wealth that was undreamt of a few years ago. New
fields are being developed in every
province of the Dominion. These
new mining regions were long regarded as waste land, fit only for
the trapper and Indian. But development work has shown that
beneath the ground lies untold
millions in wealth. Canada promises, within the next decade to become the leading mining country in
the world. Its resources are just
commencing to be explored, and
results have exceeded the highest
expectations. Another industry
that has made vast strides in the
past year with promise of still further expansion is the paper making
industry. A few years ago paper
making in Canada played a very
small part. Today we rank second on the list of paper makers,
with the prospect of shortly leading
the world. Every other industry
was in a flourishing condition when
young 1928 popped up the other
day. Canada today stands squarely on her own two feet, seeking
favors from none. During the past
year millions of dollars of foreign
capital have poured into the country
for the development of our resources. This is good. We need it
to create wealth. Within a few
years we will be wealthy enough
to finance our largest undertakings,
but today we are still young, and
need some support for our gangling
legs.   Viewing the future from an

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.
Absolute Titles are obtained by developing such properties, security of which is guaranteed by
Crown Grants.
Practically all British Columbia Mineral Properties upon which development work has been dono
are described in some one of the Annual Beports of the Minister of Mines. Those consider^

'■ President, C.P.R., in charge of traffic,
on board the Empress of Australia
. on her arrival at Quebec, following
her first trip on her changed run across
the Atlantic. To fete her arrival an
unusually distinguished gathering met
on board at a banquet at which were
present: His Excellency the Governor-
General of Canada, the Prime Minister
of the Dominion, the Lieutenants-
Governor of Quebec and Ontario, members cf the federal and provincial parliaments and many others prominent in
Canadian bushess, industrial, financial
and professional circles.
'Mr. Beatty took the opportunity to
\ draw the attention of the gathering to
the exceptional nature of the occasion
which "means more than a simple addition to a large fleet of ocean steamen
of one vessel of particular fitness for the
service in which she will be engaged."
It was also evidence of the gradual upbuilding of ocean transportation services under the p^gis of a Canadian company and another step in the development of the St. Lawrence route. In 25
years the. Canadian Pacific had built up
a fleet of 510,000 tons in which third-
class accommodation was better to-day
than the first-class had teen in the days
of its inception. Four passenger and five
freight vessels were building at the
present time, said Mr. Beatty, which
would add 1"0,CC0 tons to the fleet'3
total. "The policies which dictated these
plans are based upon the conviction that
the St. Lawrence rcute has many advantages which may well be exploited
in the interests of the Dominion."
The Empress of Australia will be the
chip that will carry the Prince of Wales
and Rt. Hon. Stanley Baldwin, Prime
Minister of Great Britain, across the
Atlantic and down the St. Lawrence
when they visit Canada in connection

Whitney Interests Buy
85 Per Cent. Flin Flon
On November 30th, the H. P.
Whitney interests, of New York
City, exercised their option to
purchase the Flin Flon property, in
northern Manitoba and Saskatchewan. The Mining Corporation of
Canada, Ltd., under the terms of
the option retained a 15 per cent in;
terest in the property and received
payment in full of the purchase
money,    amounting   to $854,000.
The David and Alec Fasken
holdings in the property were also
purchased by the Whitney interests,
giving them an 85 per cent ownership of the entire property. Following this action, the Whitney
organization transferred a 35 per
cent interest to the Newmont Mining
Corporation, of New York City.
The Dominion government has
granted for a period of twenty years
an exemption of royalty payments
on production from ores occurring
in Manitoba. Negotiations are still

from the game via the personal

being so much larger than the

to slow up the game considerably
and consequently making the game
rough. Anyox was forced to play
this game without any substitutes
as J. Barclay had injured his
thumb the previous day.

Dear Editor:
Through the columns of
your paper I would like to express
on behalf of the United Church
our deep gratitude for tlie generous
response to our appeal for toys and
clothing. Through the kindness
of the 0. N. S. S. the boxes were
carried free of charge to Vancouver.
The following letter speaks for
itself. May I say that if people
having old clothing or shoes will
leave them at the Church they will
be sent to Vancouver where good
use will be found for them.
Yours truly,
First United Church

FROM the snow-capped peak of
Mount Robson and other great
mountains along the main line
of the Canadian National Railways
in Alberta and British Columbia,
there is a constant trickle of water
which, commencing as a small
mountain torrent, grows until it
reaches the dimensions of a mighty
river on its way either to tbe ocean,
to Hudson's Bay or to interior
lakes. Fields of ice, stretching as
far as the eye can see, provide the
source of many streams which
later become large enough to bear
the burdens of commerce from the
interior to the ocean outlets to the
Mount Robson, which is seen
from the trains of the Canadian
National Railway, is 13,068 feet
high, and the highest peak of the
Canadian Rockies. This year the
Alpine Club of Canada, numbering
among its members the most eminent authorities on mountain lore,
will hold its annual camp at the
foot of this monarch of the
Rockies, and numerous peaks surrounding the district will be climbed by the hardy lovers of outdoor
Canadian National trains stop at
the foot of Mount Robson in order
that travellers may see this massive peak, towering until it seems
to pierce the very sky-line, and
scarcely a tourist passes through
who does not attempt to get one or
more photographic memoirs of his
or her trip.
