Rich Strike on
the lion Group
Solid ore was struck in the tunnel on the Lion Group, at a depth
of 70 feet, on Monday, and work is
being rapidly pushed ahead. The
lead was crbssout 100 feet from the
portal and small high grade veins
were encountered. The hanging
wall Was then followed with the
result that solid ore was encountered. The ore is brittle, silver and
also runs high in gold. It is the
intentions of the owners to make a
shipment of 15 or 20' tons to the
smelter next month.' Development
work on the Lion jwill be watohed
with interest owing to its close
proximity to Alice; Arm.
Ladies of Alice Arm
Play Hockey Match
A very interesting game of
hookey was played last Tuesday
afternoon, before a. large number of
Spectators, at the Alice Arm Arena
between the married and single
ladies .of the toita. While no
spectacular combination play or
solo rushes were indulged in, a
first-class exhibition of relay play
was given to the fans. The chief
object in view was to get the puck
into the goal and little incidental
things, such as offside, did not
bother the ladies in the least.
, The single ladies were aggressive
throughout the game, but their
shooting qualities were poor. The
married ladies played a steady
consistent game. The final score
was 2-2. i
February 18 will be nomination
day in Omineca riding. Should
Hon. A M. Manson be opposed,
election day will be March 4.

Sensational Hockey
Game At Alice Arm
A sensational hookey game was
played last Sunday at the Alice
Arm Arena between two local
teams. The game was full of pep,
pluck, push, perseverence, vim,
vigor and vitality, the air was full
shouts and the rink was full of
fans as both teams battled for
supremacy. "Both teams were in
the pink of oondition and the pace
set was fast and furious from start
to finish. Don Cameron and Gus
Anderson on the forward line bombarded the goal constantly with
shots from all angles and positions.
Only Oatman's superb quality of
goal keeping saved the day for his
team mates and turned a sure
defeat into a victory.
Al. Falconer on defence staged a
series of solo rushes which had the
opposition guessing and foiled all
their attempts to check him.
The line-up of the teams were:
G. Bruggy        goal      A. R. Oatman
F. Miller defense Al. Falconer
Bert Kergin defense H. Oarney
A. N. Yorke    centre J.-Fiva

Development and
Transportation.
The fact that Premier Oliver
at the next session of the legislature intends to ask that body to
amend the Railway Act to provide
that the right-of-way of all railways in the province which cease
operation revert to the crown, is of
especial interest to the people of
Alice Arm, inasmuch as it is
understood that such legislation
will effect the Dolly Varden
Railway.
It is high time the government
compelled the owners of the
various railways throughout the
province to continue operations or
relinquish their rights. In the case
of the Dolly Varden Railway, the
state of affairs that exist at present
is detrimental to the whole district.
The railway has hot been in operation since the fall of 1920, except
for a few weeks last summer, and
due to the washout of several
bridges and various parts of the
track last October, the railway can
not be operated until repairs are
made. While it is confidently
expected that the Taylor Mining
Co. will operate the railway this
coming summer, no guarantee has
been given that such will be the
case, and failure on the part of the
company to operate will mean a
severe blow to the development of
the mining properties on the upper
Kitsault River. The reason being
that the owners of mining properties will not feel justified in developing their properties and getting ore
ready for shipping when no guarantee can be given them by anyone
as to what date they can utilize
the railway.
It is for the government, if they
have the welfare of this district at
heart, to investigate the possibility
of the Taylor Co. operating the
railway next summer, and in the
event of the company failing to
operate, the government should be
ready to give to any Mining Co.
or property owner that'is ready to
ship ore or use the railway for
transporting machinery, etc. a guarantee that transportation will be
provided.
We must admit that the situation
for the government is embarrassing,
due to the entanglements of the
Taylor Co., but the fact remains
that as long as the railway is closed
down, not a ton of ore will be
shipped from the upper Kitsault
Valley and until a guarantee can
be secured from the government
that transportation will be provided
we can not expect a very considerable amount of development Work
will be done.
Alice Arm
Commercial Club.
It is indeed gratifying to note
that arrangements have been made
to revive the Alice Arm Commercial Club, and it is hoped that
everyone will give it their wholehearted support. An organization
is sorely needed to transact the
business of the town with the
organizations of other towns in the
neighbourhood and also with the
Provincial and Federal Governments. There is lots of work on
hand for the Commercial Club to
do for the advancement of the
town and lots more will undoubtedly arise in the future. Citizens
of Alice Arm! we hold to a large
extent the destiny of this town in
our own hands; too long have we
lagged behind our neighbours and
lost where others won. Let us
throw off our lethargy and band
ourselves together to work for the
benefit of the towfi in which we
live and have made our homes.
If everyone will give the Commercial Club their whole-hearted
support, the results obtained will
undoubtedly surprise even the most
skeptical.
To Amend the
Railway Act
Premier Oliver has announced
that he will ask the legislature at
the next session to amend the Bail-
way Act to provide that the right-
of-way of ail railways in the
province which cease operation
revert to the crown.
It is understood that the Dolly
Var;den Bailway may come under
the scope of this proposed new law
if its operation is not continued.
There are other lines in British
Columbia to which it also may be
applicable, including the Bear
River Railway at Stewart.
It is stated that as soon as
weather permits, drilling for oil
will commence in the Kitsumkallum
Valley near Terrace, and it is
expected that three or four drills
will be on the ground,
Presentation to Mr.
and Mrs. J. F. Hageman
During the meeting held' last
week of the B. P. O. Elks, Anyox
Lodge No. 47, Mr. J. F. Hageman,
the retiring Exalted Ruler, was.
presented with a beautiful initialled
club bag by A. Lamb, on behalf of
the members of the Lodge, as a
mark of appreciation and goodwill
for the unfailing interest which he
has given to the Lodge since its
formation. One of the prime
movers since its inception; by his
personality and farsightedness he
has brought the lodge through its
trying stages, until today it is a
factor to be reckoned with in this
small city of ours. Mrs. Hageman
was also the recipient of a loathe:
hand bag from the lodge. Mr
Hageman replied in a very fitting
manner and asked the boys to carry
on the good work which he had
already begun, thanking the past
officers and members for their
loyalty towards him, and wishing
every success to the incoming
officers.
The Rev. J. B. Gibson was initiated into the mysteries of Elkdom
last week.

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.
