Sporting Stage in
Alice Arm May Yet Be
Able to Enjoy
Three basketball games were on
tap at the Beach Gymnasium ou
Friday evening last. The first
game was between the Concentrator and tho Rinky Dinks of the Intermediate League, the latter winning by the score of 24-11. Tommy
Cloke was the scoring star for the
winners with a total of 10 to his
credit. T. Stewait did moat of the
sharpshooting for the losers with 7.
The teams were:
Concentrator: Ruckhaber,
Webber   2,    McKay 2,   Laycox,
Stewart 7, Docherty.
Rinky Dinks: W. Cloke 3, Sel-
win 4, T. Cloke 10, McDonald 2,
Dresser 5.
The second game brought to
gether the Public School Boys and
the High School B, the latter taking revenge for tlieir former defeat
by the school boys to the tune of
14-11. At the start of hostilities
it looked as though the Public
School were going to repeat their
win of a week ago, but the
winners came back strong in the
second half and swept the losers off
their feet.
J. Gillis and Kent were high
scorers for the High School with
6 points each. Henry Deeth was
chief scorer for the losers with 6 to
his credit.
The teams lined up as follows:
High School: S. Barclay 2, Calderone, Kent 6, J. Gillis 6, Owen, Watson, Brown.
Public Sohool: Dunwoody, Hill,
2, Deeth 6, Mikele 1, Davis 2, B.
Gillis, Brown.
In the Senior struggle the Concentrator took the Store—Office
quintette into camp by the soore of
33—19. Three of the Store-
Office players were chased during
the game for personals, Peters,
Corckle and McLellan. The last
ten minutes seeing them with only
three men on the floor. Taking
the game as a whole it was productive of very poor basketball,
too muoh personal contact being
in-evidence throughout. McDonald was high scorer for the winners
with 13 points, Bartman with 8
was high man for the losers.
The teams were:
Store-Office: Corckle, Mclntyre,
"Brown 5, Peters 6, Bartman   8,
Concentrator: Musserl, McColl,

It is possible that skating' may
yet be obtainable at Alice Arm this
year. Last night a number of enthusiasts diligently worked with
buckets to start a sheet of ice.
Their efforts were successful, thanks
to the cold weather and all that now
remains to be done to obtain early
skating is more volunteers, which
means more water.
It is understood that as soon as
the rink is ready Anyox hockey
players and skaters will make a trip
over, and perhaps several before
the season is over.
A little work on the rink now will
perhaps form a sheet of ice that will
last throughout the winter and
which would create unlimited en
joyment for everyone during the
coming' quiet months.
The Lowly Bean Honored at Festive Board
On Friday evening, November
the 25th. the Ladies Aid of the
United Church held tlieir annual
Bean Supper in the Church Hall.
To say the least about it it was
well worth the price. How a feast
of this kind put on by the Ladies
could be offered for the modest
charge of 50 cents is hard to realize. Almost everyone in town
took advantage of it and from the
satisfied looks and grunts of contentment it was easily seen that
all present thoroughly enjoyed the
good eats. The menu consisted of
beans, cold meats, salads, buns,
bread, cake, coffee and tea and
then more beans.

An Alice Arm Resident
Writes On Peace
River Country
Mr. S. Dumas who left Alice Arm
recently for The Peace River
Country on a visit to relatives and
to look over the country writes to
the Herald from Grand Prairie regarding conditions in this much
talked of section of the Dominion.
Mr. Dumas states that the country
is booming. Settlers are coming in
all the time, including many rich
farmers from the United States.
He states that land that was selling at $10.00 per acre three years
ago is now finding ready purchasers
at $25.00 per acre.
There is a lot of land still open
for homesteading and is being rapidly taken up. Last year the
countiy experienced a record crop,
not a failure being reported. It is
confidently expected that next year
will see the commencement of the
building ol a railway to the coast.
For a young man who wishes to get
ahead Mr. Dumas says the  Peace
River offers him the opportunity.

E. MOSS, Editor and Publisher;
Either the world's financiers
forsee a world's shortage of copper
within the next few years, or they
are trying to force down the price
to unprofitable levels. Throughout the world huge copper deposits
are being developed and put into
operation as quickly as possible, in
spite of the fact that the red metal
is selling at the low price of from 13
to 14 cents per pound. TheNoran-
da copper smelter in Quebec is
going into immediate operation.
On the coast the Consolidated are
developing large copper properties
including the George Copper at
Stewart. In Africa, British,
French and Belgian companies
are operating huge plants and
planning extensive additions. The
big plants of the Anaconda Co. in
Chile have been increased so that
the output can be doubled at any
time. Now comes the news that
the big deposits of the Flin Flon in
Northern Manitoba are to be mined and plans have been made for
a huge expenditure of money for
the erection of a smelter and the
building of a railway, etc. Why
all these millions of dollars are being
invested in plant additions, and the
building of new plants is a question
we have not yet seen answered.
In the case of the British, French
and Belgians in Africa it is perhaps
explainable. During the late war
they we're all "dependent upon the
United States for copper supplies,
and this they intend in eliminate in
future if possible. They are also
following the same policy in regard
to oil, cotton and numerous other
essential articles. Each empire or
country is striving to be as independent of the other as possible,
especially in time of war when
prices are exorbitant. But why
other companies should continue to
invest millions in the building of
new huge plants at the present
market price is unexplainable,
except it be that they can see into
the future. The present stampede
in opening up new copper mines is
working a hardship on the old
operating companies, who for many
years following the war could not
make both ends meet, and are only
now just commencing to pay dividends to their hungry shareholders.
Big Eastern Companies
Enter Portland Canal
With a full attendance of directors from Vancouver, Seattle and
Victoria present, the boards of the
Rufus silver-lead mines, and the
Argenta mines, meeting held
recently, voted unanimously
to accept the terms of the contract
presented for the joint sale of the
two properties to an operating subsidiary of the Noranda Company,
which is conducting large scale
mining and smelting operations in
Northern Quebec.
The terms of the agreement are
similar to those made by the Consolidated Mining & Smelting Company of Montreal in taking over the
George gold-copper property. The
Rufus and Argenta are being
merged on a share-for-share basis,
and the eastern buyers and operat-
tors are putting up $480,000 to develop the property, and will receive
a controlling stock interest on the
basis of 30 cents a share, which
was the price in the George Copper
deal. Development of the mine
will be undertaken on a large scale
next spring.
• The Rufus and Argenta properties
adjoin on the upper Bear River,
and directly across the river from
the George Copper. The Rufus is
classed as a silver-lead, and the Argenta as gold-copper.
This deal marks the entrance of
another eastern Canadian mining
organization into the Northern
British Columbia field, as recently
Tretheways of Cobalt followed the
Consolidated into the upper Bear
and took for immediate development
the Red Top property, which is adjacent on the eastern side to the
An important Coast mining deal
was announced when the
Tretheways of ' Cobalt concluded the agreement for the
purchase of the Red Top mine on
the Upper Bear River from J. J.
Connors, ex-mayor of Juneau, Alaska, and John McNeill of Stewart.
The price in the sales agreement
was $250,000. The Red Top consists of twelve developed claims
directly across the Bear River from
the George Copper, and contains
the continuation of the big veins of
the Argenta, which it adjoins on the
i'dst. The ore bodies are copper-
gold and lead-zinc-silver.
The new eastern owners will
start development work on a large
scale as soon as supplies can be
taken in. This deal marks the entrance of the first Ontario mining
organization into the new Portland
Canal mining field.

Transportation Epic of North America
(1) "2300" Pacific   type  locomotive tout re|irt»euted tile Ouuiiiiliiu
view.      (3) Early B. A O. enKliu> ot the PiiKCiint.     (4) The "Atlantic" of
"Tom Thumb", built In 1828, the first locomotive In North America.
The epic of transportation in
America from the days when Indians trekked across the plains with
their luggage on poles dragged by
dogs and ponies to the present with
250-ton locomotives thundering across
the country hauling hotels on wheels
at 70 miles an hour was enacted at
Boston recently during the Centenary
Exhibition and Pageant of the Baltr
more and Ohio Railroad this fall.
Canadian interest at the "Fair of
the Iron Horse" was keen as this
country was represented at Baltimore
by the latest achievements in the way
of locomotive construction. The
Canadian Pacific Railway was represented by itr . \ and fastest passenger lo.comoi ;, the latest type of
their "2300" Pacific class locomotive,
number Nor2333, which drew the
Prince of Wales. Prince George and
Premier Baldwin during their recent
trip across Canada. Engineer W. R.
Creighton (who hat been with the
Canadian Pacific 24 yean) and Fireman R. F. Thomas (22 years) not
only piloted the Prince of Wales'
train, but took the locomotive from
Toronto to Baltimore for the Fair of
the Iron Horse. This locomotive is
capable of a maximum speed of 90
miles per hour, weighs nearly 600,000
pounds and can handle 16 steel cars
on fast schedule.
On the opening day of the Pageant
this powerful engine took its place
alongside a half dozen other giants
from the roads of various countries.
Notable among these from across tke
water was the huce new "King
George V" pride of the Great Western
Railway and the fastest that England
has produced. During tie opening
parade of these locorr.ot. /cs the band
played "Land of Hopt. and Glory"
and "Rule Britannia" hi honor of the
of the countries they represented.
The Pageant is recognized to have
been the greatest transnortation exhibition everstaged. Every period of
railway history since st.-am was f rst
used for railway locomotion wad
represented and the result was a
strange collection of contrivances
that made the crowds stare in wonder
as they miffed alon? under t>evc own
steam % The 250-ton marvels of
present uay railroads they professed

1832 vintage.      (5)  Peter Cooper's
to accept as something tangible but
not the curios that have been preserved from nearly a hundred yean
back. Perhaps the most interesting
old-time exhibit was Peter Cooper's
"Tom Thumb" the first locomotive
built in North America being constructed in 1829. The backers of the
B. & O. railroad were ao impressed
v ith it and the evident value of steam
that they were willing to go ahead and
organize the road a century ago.
Real Indians added a romantic
dash to the scene. They whooped past
the crowds on their fleet ponies and
then returned to guide the visitors
down to view their encampment a
short distance away.
One of the outstanding features of
the Pareant was the dress of those
vho manned the old-time trains and
t'e passengers who made the journey
