ito the net from a pass from
[cGammon on the left wing.
In the second period. the tide of
a,ttle swayed up and down the ice
id brilliant tending by the rival
oalkeepers saved the game on
lany occasions. Oatman experi-
lced a lot of hard luck in not
soring, hitting the goal posts and
oal-keeper on numerous occasions,
nyox again scored, McGammon
oing the trick from a pass from
(own in the centre.
It looked like an ■ easy win for
Uiyox when MoGammen in the
lird   period   after   considerable
ikeying got away on an individ-
al play and shot the puck past
ruggy, placing his team three
oals in the lead.
It was at this stage of the game
;hat Alice Arm came to life and
showed the fans some real hockey,
ihey outclassed their opponents at
ill stages of the game and piled on
ihree goals in less than ten minutes.
Joss scored the first goal from a
)ass from Al. Falconer on the left,
tiid he repeated the aot in a few
ninutes from a pass from Oatman.
)atman iied the score with a drive
torn centre and the trick was;
lone. Anyox failed to add to their
;ally and the score was 3-3 when
,he whistle sounded.
Ten minutes overtime was play-
id whioh was fast and furious. Al.

picture shows in B. C. was read
stating that there was no objection
to having a swimming pool in the
basement of a moving picture

for equipment for the gymnasium.
An advertisement will be published
in Vancouver and the secretary of
the Vancouver Y. M. C. A. will be
requested by letter to assist if
possible in procuring the necessary
equipment. The Gym. is a popular
institution, being well patronized
every evening by men, women and
children, and some arrangement
will have to be made so that all
can have equal use of the building.

was the auctioneer and to prove
his ability to handle the job he
netted the school fund over $100,

$6.50 each. After supper was
over dancing was resumed and at
the olose Bert Kergin spoke a few
words on behalf of the citizens of
Alice Arm in .which he thanked
Mr. Rogers for his kindness in
helping the local orchestra during
his stay here and the interest all
the men on the wharf construction
had taken in all social events of
the town.
Mr. Rogers in reply, said that it
really ought to be the people of
Alioe Arm who should be thanked
and speaking for himself and the
men on the pile-driver, he wished

every minute of the programme.
The music by the Anyox Orchestra

desired.

Alice Arm
Skating Rink     ,,
The promoters of the Alice
Arm Skating Rink are to be congratulated on the progressive spirit
shown by them in the fall of 1920
when they decided to Jjuild the
skating rink. Last season was a
successful one and this season also
promises well.
The rink has proved a great
boom to the people of Alice Arm.
It is the only place in the winter
where outside sport can be obtained and the pleasure that has
already been derived from it has
more than paid for the money and
labor expended in the erection.
Skating can be indulged in every
day (except for a few warm spells)
throughout the winter, from early
morning until late in the evening.
That the people of Alice Arm
appreciate the rink is proven by
the number of people that can be
seen on the ice at any hour of the
day, from 5-year old children up.
Hockey games between local
teams are played every week, and
the children also have regular
hockey games. Anyox hockey
team are frequent visitors and some
fast and strenuous games have
already been played this year.
It must afford great satisfaction
to the promoters to see what a
great interest has been taken in the
rink since it was first opened, and
if the financial standing of the rink
was better, they undoubtedly
would be still more satisfied.
The rink started this season with
a debt of $359.41 and a credit
account of $1.65. The sale of
season tickets have been very satisfactory this year, considering the
depressed condition of mining, but
a considerably sum of money is
still needed in order to clear off the
debt. Necessary repairs were
done to the building this season.
The roof was strengthened, and
the cost of material for this and
other incidental expenses will be
in the neighbourhood of $100.
All labor was supplied voluntary
or it probably would have been
impossible to operate the rink this
season. Alice Arm have a skating rink of which any town in
British Columbia might well be
proud and it is a pleasure to see
that the citizens are giving it their
hearty support.
Dr. Simmons ol
Anyox is Dead
Dies on the Venture on her
Trip North.   Death Due to
Heart Failure
Stork Fifty in Lead
on Recount of Votes
At the recount of votes in the
Federal election, being held a£
Prince Rupert before Judge Young,
Col Peck gained fourteen votes- on
a recount of the Premier mine and
Smithers. In the case of the Premier mine twenty-nine ballots
were thrown out on account of the
failure of the returning officer to
provide sufficient ballots. Makeshift ballots were made by the
deputy and these were the one's
that were thrown out. 1 All the
Telegraph Creek ballots were
thrown out as they were typewritten. The result was that Fred
Stork gained sixteen votes. With
twenty small polls to be examined,
Fred Stork's majority stands at
fifty.
The death occurred on Saturday,
January, 14th, of Dr. H. S.
Simmons, the well known Anyox
dentist. His doath occurred on
board the Venture on her last
trip north, just before she reached
Ocean Falls and was due to heart
failure. '
Dr. Simmons left Anyox on December'19th, to spend the Christmas holidays with his wife and son
Harry, who is a dentist in
Vancouver. He left Vancouver on
Friday night in the best of health,
and retiring late he ordered breakfast to be brought to his state
room in the morning, as he was
going to stay in bed and have a
good rest. He had breakfast in
his.room and got up during the
afternoon, but feeling-ill he returned to bed. The steward called to
see if he required anything in the
evening and found him dead. The
body was left at Ocean Falls and
will be picked up and taken to
Vancouver on the return trip of
the Venture.
Many were the expressions of
regret when the news was received
in Anyox. The Doctor was well
liked by all who knew him and his
presence will b« greatly missed.
He was. well known to many in
Anyox who came from the boundary country, as he was previous to
coming to Anyox, located in Greenwood and made business trips to
the surrounding towns andThining
camps during the last decade.
He was 57 years of age and
leaves to mourn his loss his wife
and son Dr, Harry Simmons, who
live at Burnaby, also two sisters,
Mrs. A. Littlehills and Miss Edna
Simmons, who both reside in
Vancouver,
Rick Ore Strike
At tke Premier Mine
The Portland Canal News, of
Stewart says: "Word has just
been received that ore was struck
in No. 4 tunnel, at the Premier
mine, on December 28. With this
strike the Premier ore bodies have
been proved to a depth of 700 feet,
and is therefore, possibly the most
important strike ever made in the
camp, for it proves beyond a doubt
that the ore deposits in this district
go down to great depth.
He who whispers down a well
About the goods he hat to sell,
Will never reap the golden dollars
Like him who climbs a tree and boilers.

runs away when no man is after him."

figures which show the value of production for successive five-year periods: For all years to 1895, inclusive,
$94,547,241 for five years, 1896-1900, $57,605,967; for five years, 1901-1905, $96-509,968; for five years, 1906-

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, the security of which is guaranteed by.
Crown Grants.

SPEND! SPEND!
Those who will not profit by experience deserve
to suffer. Experience has taught thousands of
successful business men that a dollar hoarded
when it should be expended on advertising is
worse than a dollar thrown away. This is particularly true of the time when the inclination
to conserve is strongest.
