Anyox Senior and Girls'
Basketball Teams Win
From Prince Rupert
Thursday night was about the
biggest night of basketball ever
witnessed in Anyox. Three local
teams competed with Prinoe Rupert
teams: intermediates, Indies and
men's senior. The gymnasium was
packed to the limit with spectators
and the roars of encouragement, to
the looals especially during the
senior game was almost deafening.
. All three games were olose
Anyox winning two games and
Prince Rupert one and the fans
certainly received their money's
worth of excitement.
The first game was between
Prince Rupert intermediates and
the Rinky Dinks. The latter took
the lead with a score of 4-2.
Bupert brought it up to 4-3, and
shortly obtained a 5-4 lead. Later
the score was tied at 8 all, but
Prince Rupert forced the pace and
came out  winners  with  a  15-10
The Prince Rupert girls team
arrived and left again on Thursday's boat. This enabled them to
play one game. After a well
contested exhibition of basketball
the Anyox girls finally won with a
score of 19-14.
At half time, Prince Rupert was
in the lend with 9-8, but the Anyox
girls proved too clever for them,
making the score 19-13 in their
favor at the end of the third quarter. At the olose of the game the
score was 19-14 in favor of Anyox.
The final game was a battle of
the giants between Prince Rupert
and Anyox seniors. It was a bitterly contested game. Both teams
throwing every ounce of energy
into the game. The Anyox team
fought a hard uphill fight and their
efforts were rewarded by defeating
their opponents by a score of 31-29.
The local team was encouraged
to further efforts by almost continuous roars of encouragement, from
a hall packed to capacity by frenzied fans.
Anyox drew first blood by scoring six points before Prince Rupert
realized that they would be forced
to step a little if they were to come
into the picture at all. They jumped suddenly to action and tied the
score at seven all.
Rupert then took the lead at 9-7
but Anyox team working like
demons tied the score again at 9
all. So closely was the game contested that it was tied at 26 and
again at 29.
Here it was that determination,
grit, plus an intimate knowledge
of the game all played their parts.
Anyox annexed two more points,
and downed their opponents with
a score bf 31-29.
It was by far the most outstanding game ever played in Anyox.

Pioneer Mess Provides
Christmas Banquet
On Friday December 28th. the
Anyox Pioneer Mess gave its annual Christmas dinner to its members aud their invited guests.
About 180 people being present.
The dinner was a great success.
The menu was very pretentious,
and the tables were loaded with
everything good to eat from oyster
cocktails to coffee and cigarettes.
Following the dinner a dance
was held in the Reading Room of
the library. A five-pieoe orchestra
discoursed splendid music, which
was greatly enjoyed by a large
number of dancers. Dancing was
continued until 12.30 a.m.
It was, indeed, a red letter day
in the life of the Mess and its
members, and one that will not
soon be forgotten.
The Mess and its members look
forward to the new year with increasing confidence in its permanency and success.
Big Throng Attend The
Anyox New Year Dance
The passing of the old year and
the welcoming of the new was
fittingly celebrated at the Elks'
N&w Year dance on Monday
evening. At the hour of midnight
all joined lustily in singing "Auld
Lang Syne."
The Gymnasium presented a gay
appearance, being thronged with
care-free dancers, who were intent
on an evening's enjoyment, and iii(
starting the new year at least'
with a light heart.
The turkey supper, with all the
trimmings was greatly enjoyed,
and its excellence was the cause of
many favorable comments,
Music of the evening was supplied by both Peele's and the Moose
orchestra, the latter playing while
supper was in progress.
It was a dance where light
heartedness and sociability were
in the forefront, and everyone
present spent a very enjoyable
Alice Arm  Welcomes
New Year With
A whirling throng of dancers at
the Alice Arm Hotel, whioh constituted almost the entire population,
bid good-bye to the old year on
Monday night and light-heartedly
welcomed the New Year by handshaking and New Year greetings.
It was a gay scene with everyone
iu a happy mood and no one seem-
to doubt but that the coming year
would be a prosperous one for all.
The dance was given by Mr. and
Mrs. O. Evindson of the Alice Arm
Hotel, and, as in previous years a
general invitation to everyone was
issued. A large number availed
themselves of the opportunity to
collectively welcome the new year.
From the commencement of the
first dance until the wee small hours
not a dull moment was allowed the
guests. The Alice Arm orchestra
furnished the music the music, and
catching the contagious enthusiasm they rendered the musical
numbers with a dash that made
dancing irresistible.
Mr. aud Mrs. Evindson as hosts
were the recipients of many con
gratulations for the evening's en
joy ment.
Alice Arm Debate Postponed
The Alice Arm debate, the sub
ject of which was: "Resolved that
a truck road to the Upper Kitsault
Valley would be more beneficial to
Alice Arm than a railroad," and
which was to have been held this
evening, has been postponed until
some future date. The cause of the
delay is due to the absence from
town of two speakers on the negative side.

Preliminary Review of
Mining Shows Big
The Preliminary Review and
Summary of Operations for the
year 1928 which was recently published by the Department of Mines,
contains much valuable information regarding progress of the industry for the past year. It was
compiled by John D. Galloway,
provincial mineralogist. A copy-
can be obtained by applying to the
Department of Mines.
A general summary of the pro-
gressof the industry throughout the
province is given, with estimated
output of each metal and the value.
An increase of output of every
metal is predicted, and the past
year promises to be a record one
from point of output.
Every mineral district is reported on by the resident mining engineers.
The North-Western district, of
which Alice Arm and Anyox form
a part, was well covered by H. T.
James, resident engineer. The
Toric, Tiger, Kitsault-Eagle Silver
Mines, and Esperanza were all
commented upon.
In regard to copper the report
"The copper-output for the year
is estimated at 99,150,000 lb., as
compared with 86,202,871 lb. in
1927. This is the largest yearly-
production of copper ever made in
the Province, the increase being
mainly accounted for by the larger
tonnage handled by the Britannia
Mining and Smelting Company,
Limited, which is now mining and
milling 5,000 tons a day.
"Owing to increased output and
a better average market price for
copper, the production value of
copper will show a substantial increase as compared with 1927, the
estimate being $14,524,483, as
compared with $11,525,011 in 1927.
"The outstanding feature in
copper-mining this year has been
the substantial appreciation in the
market price of copper metal.
Starting the year at approximately
13.85 cents a pound, the price gradually rose to nearly 16 cents a pound
in December. The outlook for 1929
is that the present price will at least
be maintained.
"During recent years the two
large operating companies have
gradually lowered costs and increased capacities, and now that a good
price is received for copper metal
these companies are making satisfactory profits. The improved price
for copper also makes possible the
mining of lower-grade ore.
"There are several copper properties in the Province which are
developed to a considerable extent,
but which are not yet productive.
The strength in the copper metal
market should hasten production

K. MOSS, Editor and Publisher,
On Tuesday last almost everyone in Alice Arm greeted the
new year with considerable enthusiasm. Let us hope that the
enthusiasm displayed at the birth
of the year will be maintained undiminished throughout its course.
This year will probably see greater strides made in the development
of the mining properties in the
camp than has been made during
any previous year. New mining
companies will come; new mining
engineers will examine the district
and new people will come to live
with us, unless the unexpected
happens. It is our duty and it is
also to our advantage to treat the
newcomers right by giving them
every encouragement. We should
remember that Alice Arm is a
mere drop in the ocean compared
with the mineral districts of the
world. However vast our ore
bodies, their non-development will
not cause a world shortage of any
particular metal if they were never
developed. The money that don't
come here will be used in some
other part of the Dominion, and enrich other districts to our detriment.
Give the new companies, who are
satisfied with any particular property after they have examined it,
the best possible terms. They
are willing to take a chance on
their judgement and spend money
on development work in order to
prove or disprove that a mine exists.
If a mine don't exist, the quicker
the owner learns the truth the
better for him. If a mine does exist he picks up the cash, and is at
once exalted into a capitalist.
The old order of things are rapidly
passing away. No more is it
possible to pick up $50,000 for a
mining property until a mine has
been proven. Hard business
methods of the past few years
commenced the change, and electrical prospecting has rung the
death knell.
Legislature Will Dispose
Of Much Business
During Session
Victoria, B. C. January 1st.—
Almost the first government business to he takeir up on Santa Claus

the appointment of a Commissioner
toact for British Columbia in arranging with Dominion Commissioners
VV. VV. Corry and Duncan C. Scott
all details of the transfer to the
Province of the Peace River Block
and Railway Belt lands. Necessarily the appointee must be thoroughly conversant with the British Columbia case in all its ramifications
and particulars—familiar, too, with
the history of negotiations that have
been successfully consummated at
long last, and something of an expert in the technique of inter-provincial and Dominion-provincial
That British Columbia's rights
and interests shall be fully safeguarded in these final proceedings,
a strong man with special qalifica-
tions is required as envoy of the
Province, in which connection the
name of VV. J. Bowser K. C. is
much mentioned. His selection
would be eminently fitting in many
respects and would be generally
applauded. Also it might go far to
cement the two wings of the great
and good Conservative Party in
British Columbia, which latterly
have not been flapping in unison
exactly as they should.
Although governmental circles
prognosticate that the first session
of the new legislature, opening on
the 22nd proximo will be notable for
brevity, Opposition, as well as Ministry will have something to say in
that connection, as will the House
itself. And certainly any suggestion of a curtailment of indemnity
would be viewed with indignant
horror and alarm.
The Administration even may
have its programme of legislation
all ready at the opening and still be
unable to make as quick an ending
of the session as it would like.
Criticisim and consideration of
measures cannot be unduly restricted; and there also are to be disposed of a greater number of private
charter applications than have figured on the Order Paper since the
advent of Liberalism in 1916.
Three important groups of capitalists are represented by private
railway incorporation bills, the
promoters  ignoring  the   simplified
procedure under the B. C. Railway
Act, which suggests to experienced
parliamentarians that there may be a
few bashful Ethiopians hiding between the innocent lines of these
private bills, who must be rooted
out in the public interest.

Government To Protect
Public Against False
While considering definite legislative steps to control the operations of British Columbia companies which are selling stock to the
public, the Provincial Government is
waiting now for the text of the
Privy Council judgement, by
which provinces are barred from
exercising control over federally-
incorporated firms. When this
arrives, and has been digested, the
provincial authorities will be in a
position, it is expected, to bring
down the legislature which has been
under discussion here for years.
Until the full text of the judgment has been read, officials declined
to comment on it, but attorney-General Pooley indicated clearly that
Ihe government had in mind new
measures to protect the public
against dangerous business promotions.
The fact that the province is believed to be in the first stages of a
mining boom, it is understood, is one
of tbe chief reasons for the government's desire to safeguard investors
more effectively.
It was explained that the Privy
Council's decision will not alter the
present procedure of the province;
that is, British Columbia has never
attempted tocontrolcompaniesdoing
business under federal charter, but
it has sought to co-operate with the
Federal Government in watching
closely the operations of such concerns.
1928 marked a period of rapid
growth in the economic structure of
the Dominion, and on every hand
there is evidence of progress being
made in exploration, development
and production.—Dominion Government Bulletin.

The Lord Nelson at Halifax
/"Mtizens of Halifax take very justifiable pride in
^J the fact that in bringing to fruition their dream
of a new modern hotel, they have created a beautiful
hostelry which, while still too new to have many
valued associations, has an atmosphere redolent of
those days of grace in which their city had its beginnings. The Lord Nelson, but recently opened,
has a charm not usually associated with a modern
institution of its kind and a decided nautical touch.
The grill, for instance, is named the "Ward Room,"
and as one sees the sailor suited waitresses moving
about the tables one half expects to hear the "Ship
Ahoy," or "Light on the starb'd bow, sir." Lanterns
help to foster the ship-board illusion, and, one of
these lanthoms, pictured above, has very close associations with the sea. When Lord Nelson lay dying
in the cockpit of H.M.S. Victory, while the great
old ship heaved in the rollers off Cape Trafalgar
on October 21, 1805, this lamp illuminated the scene
as the doctors strove to save a life the loss of which
was one of England's greatest.
A bust of Nelson, an original from the Royal
Naval Institute at Greenwich, and an exceptionally
fine piece of work, stands in a corner of the lounge,
lacing a model of his flagship.   In the main dining-
room, too, a very fine oil shows the admiral on dock
and his men running up a signal of victory.
The Lord Nelson is, however, a little more than
an art centre. It is a very modern hotd of 200
rooms facing the Halifax Public Gardens. Its public
and convention rooms are exceptionally well planaed
and appointed. The design is Georgian, simple and
beautiful. While it has been bnilt as the result of a
community effort, the Lord Nelson is operated by tha
hotel department of the Canadian Pacific Railway,
which company has considerable interest to it It
will, therefore, compare very favorably in aorvioa
and all essentials with the great Chateau* and other
hotels of the company.          -

Regarding silver production tho
report says:
"The production of silver is estimated at 10,570,000 oz., as compared with 10,470,185 oz. in 1927,
an increase of 99,815 oz. The value
of this output is $6,155,228, as
compared with $5,902,043 in 1927.
British Columbia will again easily
maintain its position as the leading
silver-producing Province of Canada.
' 'The bulk of the silver production
comes from the Sullivan and Premier
mines, but numerous mines throughout the Province contribute. Increased output of silver is estimated
from Slocan, Ainsworth, and Omineca Divisions, which is offset in
part by decreases from others."
