New Year Dance Will
Be Special Event
Supper at 10.45 p.m. on Sunday
and dancing from 12.01 a.m. on
New Year's Day, continuing indefinitely—such is the programme of
those energetic lodgemen, the Elks.
Planned to suit the unusual occurrence of New Year's Eve falling
on a Sunday, this arrangement is
a happy one. The supper will be a
lavish one and will be attended by-
many groups of people, who have
booked their places. It will be
quite different from the rush and
hurry of the ordinary dance supper.
There will be plenty of time in which
to enjoy the repast, no dances being
missed through absence from the
4ance ball.
The Brother Bills are exerting
themselves to make this a memorable function, and there is no doubt
whatever that this will be accomplished. A good floor and the best
music obtainable will await the
dancers and a large gay crowd will
be catered for, while unusual novelties will be distributed! Book your
places at the supper tables today.
Enjoyable Time Spent
At Christmas Dance
The cold weather, the Christmas
[spirit and the general good nature
of everyone at this time must have
combined to make the A. C. L.
Christmas Dance, held in the Gym.
on Friday the 22nd. a happy event,
for everyone voted it the best ever.
The floor, the supper, and the
music by the "Revellers" were excellent, the tatter turning out some
toe-tingling tunes and. tempos that
kept everyone animated. The kindergarten set which was recently
disposed of by the I. O. D. E. was
secured by Mr. F. Graham. A
substantial sum was raised for relief purposes by the disposal of this
handsome set.
Beach Children's A. C.
L. Christmas Party
Very Colorful
Everybody present at the Community League Christmas Party for
the children at the Beach, held in
the Gymnasium on Thursday the
21st. thoroughly enjoyed the affair.
The gathering glistened and sparkled with life and color. Novel and
beautiful costumes abounded, and
the judges had much difficulty in
making their decisions.
The prize for the best dressed
girl went to Nanette Taylor as "Bo
Peep" and John Scott was selected
as the best dressed boy, he being a
picturesque little jockey. In the
comic section Winnie Vine topped
the girls as a "B^-Baby" and Albert Gigot headed the boys as a
hobo. Terry O'Brien, as a "Christmas Parcel" lead in the character
costumes, as also did Nancy Gigot
as "Old Man." Special prizes were
awarded to Shirley Hague as
"Winter and Summer;" Peggy McDougall as "Crinolin;" to the Sor-
rienti boys as a "Spanish Team"
and to G. Hunter and June Cleal as
a "Dutch Team."
Gifts off the tree were distributed
by Santa Claus himself in person,
and it is safe to say that the children
never enjoyed themselves more
thoroughly than at this party.
BIRTH AT ANYOX
Born, to Mr. and Mrs. A. Lookie
at the Anyox Central Hospital, on
Friday, December 22nd. a son.
Anglican Church Choir Visits
Hospital
The ohoir of the Anglican Church
led by the Rev. A. Abraham, visited the Hospital on Christmas
morning and sang a number of
carols, which were greatly enjoyed
by the patients at that institution.
Mr. Olof Hanson M.P.
Prince George Reaches
Rupert Safely
Leaving Anyox about 4 a.m. on
Christmas morning, the "Prince
George,"reoentlydamaged through
running on the rocks at Askew
Point during a, snowstorm, proceeded to Prine Rupert under her
own power. She was escorted by
the "Salvage King." Everything
possible had been done to lighten
the-maimed liner in readiness for
her hazardous journey, even to
leaving her boats behind at Anyox
to be brought along later by the
Salvage Princess.
Once on the drydock at Prince
Rupert the work of repairing her
shattered plates was immediately
commenced but it is expected that
she will be laid up for some considerable time. During the journey to Prince Rupert wireless communications were received or sent
by the operator on the "Salvage
King," these being transmitted by
semaphore signalling from one
vessel to the other.
Alice Arm People Invited To
Welcome New Year
Mr. and Mrs. 0. Evindsen of the
Alice Arm Hotel have issued an
open invitation to everyone to be
present at the Hotel on Sunday
evening, in order that the New
Year may be welcomed in with the
usual ceremony. Refreshments
will be served- Don't fail to be
present and greet the coming of
the new, and no doubt better year.
Many Unique Costumes
At Mine A. C. L.
Children's Party
Splendid co-operation by all concerned was responsible for the brilliant success of the Children's Party
at the Mine on Thursday the 21st.
This was a most colorful and gorgeous function, the hall being filled
with children in beautiful and clever
costumes. There were so many
lovely children and so many original
character costumes, that the judges'
task of selecting the prize winners
was extremely difficult Patient
and painstaking work on the part
of the grown-ups in preparing the
children for this splendid carnival
was evident, and worthy of high
praise.
Prizes were awarded as follows:
best dressed girl, Roberta Ferguson
"Turkish Girl;" Eleanor Carr,
"Fairy;" best dressed boy: first,
Robert Marsh as a Chinese Mandarin; "'2nd. Bobby Carr as an old-time
Colonial; Comic boy, Kenneth McLean as a hard rock miner; Comic
girl, Marion McLean as "Old Dutch
Cleanser;" Original boy, Mervyn
Owen as a "Gypsy;" original girl,
Margaret Gibb as a Ballet Dancer.
The ubiquitous Santa Claus distributed gifts from the tree to all the
children, and three clowns—Ed,
Blundell, J. Coggins and S. Pap-
roski—kept the youngsters in an
uproar of merriment. It was rumoured that Mr. McNicholas had
been observed in the vicinity of the
hall, but he must have been masquerading himself as no one recognized him. Ample and tasty refreshments brought a most unique
and enjoyable gathering to a close.

What Has the New
Year In Store For Us?
Tomorrow at midnight the present year will pass away and a new
one   ushered in.   The passing of
1933 will not be regretted by anyone.    For the big majority it, has
been a year of disappointment, distress and   depression;   a year of
blighted    ambitions    and  twelve
months of weary waiting for better
conditions.     True,   it    redeemed
itself   a  little   during  the    latter
stages, but the recovery was painfully slow and we have a long way
to   travel   back to normal times,
when 90 per cent of our population
was   employed in  gainful occupations at a good living wage.    But
what of  1934?     What it has  in
store for us no one can foresee.
Judging from present world reports
it is apparent that business is on
the increase.    How fast it will gain
during the coming year is something the cleverest economists can
not foretell.    At the close of the
year the world's nations have not
made any concerted effort to improve world conditions.    Each is
working for its own benefit, in spite
of the fact that the experience of
the past few years have shown that
no one nation can be prosperous
while   the   others are in poverty
The nations can not agree to stabil
ize their currencies.   They will not
lower their high tariff walls,  nor
will they pass legislation to curtail
hours of labor and take advantage
of the usefulness of the present day
rapid motion automatic machinery,
by which goods are produced.   The
coming year, however,  may see a
start made to build up a permanent
world prosperity.    It will be a radical change from anything hitherto
undertaken, but since man lit his
first fire, made his fir^vheel and
fashioned his first spffc*, conditions in the world have ever changed,
and we are still a long way from
the final.
B. C. Silver Company Hold
Annual Meeting
Annual meeting of B. C. Silver
Mines   Ltd.,    London    controlled
company, holding 17 claims adjoin
ing Premier Gold Mine, was recently held in Vancouver.   The meeting
was of a formal nature there having
been no developments at the property during the year.    It is under
stood that stabilization of silver at
higher price levels might lead to
resumption of negotiations in con
nection with development and operation of the property, which, owing
to its location has interesting possi
bilities.
The balance sheet as at August
31, 1933, was presented, showing
S780 expended on maintenance dur
ing the year, bringing general dev>
elopment and prospecting account
to $723,643. The sum of $12,774
was spent on insurance, salaries,
general expenses and depreciation
bringing general expenditure account to $162,151.
Ore testing laboratories at Ottawa
are acknowledged to be the largest
and best equipped in the world.
The Local Outlook
For The Coming Year
What is the local outlook for
1934? Will prices of copper and
silver rise during the next twelve
months, so that mining companies
can make a profit and employees
increase their earnings? We sincerely hope so. Although the outlook for increased prices is much
better than a year ago, how high
they will rise is a question a good
many would like to answer with
assurance. The price of copper, of
course, depends entirely upon the
demand, and the demand depends
upon the state of the manufactur
ing industry. If manufacturing is
at a high level copper prices go up,
and when it lags, copper prices
recede. Silver, however, is in a
different category. It is not used
extensively in the manufacturing
industry. It is, and always has
been, a more or less valuable metal.
As world conditions are at present,
the future price of silver seems to
depend entirely upon legislation
passed by different nations, either
favorably or otherwise. During
the past two weeks, the President
of the United States has wisely
enacted laws that has remonetized
silver in that country and raised
the price from around 43. cents to
64| per ounce. This legislation
will be instrumental in re-opening
many silver mines in the southern
republic and will also cause many
new mines to start producing.
What Premier Bennett intends to
do in Canada in regard to silver is
not known. He should unhesitatingly follow the example of President Roosevelt and place silver in
its rightful position in our currency.
Such action on his part would result in placing thousands of men in
employment in Canada, and would
put into circulation money of real
value. Silver at 64J cents an
ounce would undoubtedly be the
cause of active mining in the Alice
Arm district. Properties that have
been idle for years would resound
with the hum of activity, and the
silver deposits of this district would
be created into wealth for the benefit of the nation, instead of being
buried in the ground where it is
valueless to everyone. There is
every reason to hope and expect
that silver prices will rise to a level
that will make mining profitable in
this district during the coming
year. It is also very probable that
copper prices will rise considerably
in 1934, and in anticipation of the
success of that hope we wish our
readers an
Exceptionally Happy and Prosperous
New Year during 1934.

Gives Name to Rockies Pass
TJ eeognitton «f* the years of devoted labor by J.
**■ Murray Gibbon, general publicity agent of the
Canadian Pacific Railway, in popularizing the Cana-
dian Rockies throughout the world, has been given by
naming a pass in the mountains after him. Gibbon
Pass has hitherto been anonymous and lies between
Shadow Lake and tbe Twin Lakes, below Ball and
Storm mountains in the valley of the Bow, midway
between Banff and Lake Louise. Not far from
travelled routes in the Rockies and located in one of
their most picturesque sections, Gibbon Pass wa»
actually discovered by Mr. Gibbon when he was planning the route to be taken by Trail Riders last summer and himself hiked over the trail between the two
in Van
The name was conferred recently by the Geographic
Board of Canada in honor of Mr. Gibbon's workas
poet, novelist, promoter of musical and folklore festivals and founder of the Order of Trail Rldersof the
Canadian Rockies which numbers members from all
parts of this continent, Europe and Australia and
which has done inestimable work in bringing the
glories of Canada to the knowledge of the world.
Lay-Out shows the Pass, with inset of Mr. Gibbon
and, below, close-up of group of Trail Riders.
Ski Runners of the Canadian Rockies
&s^i»
With a field of activity unequalled the world over the new winter
sports association the Ski Runners of the Canadian Rockies,
is rapidly coming into prominence among skiers and winter sports
enthusiasts generally. The new organization is patterned largely
after the famous Trail Riders and its locale, unequalled for
scenery and facilities on this continent and probably without a
rival even in Europe, is Banff, in the heart of the Rockies, with
run* and trails varying from one to ten days in duration and
'covering inch world-known objectives as Mount Assiniboine,
Simpson Pass, Shadow Lake, Lake Louise, Ptarmigan Valley and
Pass, Bow Lakes and Pipestone Pass. Ski-ing over some of these
passes is in full swing as late as June when visitors are enjoying golf
and tennis, fishing and hiking, in the valleys below. But the sport begins in November eacli year.
0 A miNM feet above Banff and about an hour out from the town is the ski lodge built on the pass
between Mmints Norquay and Stoney Squaw, from the club house runs radiate in all directions with cabin?
and shelters at strategic points for rest and refreshment. There is a 50-metre Jump at Buffalo Park and
every year in February (this year February 7-14) a tournament is held where the pick of Canadian and out-
sido jumpers compete. ♦»

Anglican Sunday School
Scholars Entertained
Father Christmas, whose doings
at this time are so instantaneous
and rapid, visited the Parish Hall
of the Anglican Church, on Wednesday afternoon last and presented
gifts to the scholars of the Sunday
School. In addition to a number
of toys many handsome books were
distributed, these being greatly
appreciated. The gathering took
the form of a Christmas Party,
everyone present joining in games
and a general frolic.
Refreshments were served, and
this annual event was much enjoyed.;
Mr. Fred Graham was present
during the afternoon, though effectively disguised for the time being.
United Church Sunday
School Xmas Tree
Wednesday evening last, will not
soon be forgotten by .the scholars
of the United Church Sunday School
for it was the occasion of their annual Christmas Tree and Party.
There was everything that is so
dear to the hearts of the children at
such times. Of course Santa Claus
bounced in just in the nick of time
and distributed gifts from the tree.
• A feature of the occasion was a
concert given by the children of the
Sunday School, and the adults
present were treated to a lengthy
programme of songs, dances, recitations and other items which proved most enjoyable. Refreshments
were afterwards served, and the
sociable and gay atmosphere prevailing made the affair most enjoyable.
Christmas Festivities Are Gay
But Orderly
Anyox folk, who have so much
to be thankful for at this season,
spent Christmas in a gay but orderly fashion. There was a total absence of rowdyness or overbuoy-
ancy. All homes reflected the true
spirit of Christmas ar$-.warmth,
plenty and good clieflpjjprevailed
everywhere. At a great many
homes it was the pleasure of the
inmates to entertain some of the
single men of the camp and those
men, who are without permanent
homes here. Needless to say, this
thoughtfulness was much appreciated.
Christmas at Alice Arm was
enjoyed, we believe, by everyone.
The same old spirit of goodwill
prevailed and open house was kept
by everyone for visitors through
out the day. Dinner invitations
were extended to many single men
by their married friends, and
everybody appeared to have spent
an enjoyable day.
Banff Queen
Miss Violet Davis, of Edmonton,
Alberta, who will reign as
Queen of the Banff Winter Carnival, from January 31st to February 4th, inclusive. This internationally famous winter Bports
meet, which provides thrills ranging from outdoor swimming, to
toboggan chutes built on mountain
sit!es, and ski-joring over mountain trails, will this year again
take its place among the outstanding Western Canadian winter car-
ntvals.
PERFECT MAPLE LEAF
The most beautiful maple leaf,
prize winner in the nationwide competition conducted by the
Canadian Pacific Railway, was
submitted by Mrs. C. McConnell,
Fredericton R. No. 3, York County, New Brunswick. It has a flare
of autumn coloring ranging from
light yellow to deep blood red, and
its perfect symmetry and form
won it distinction in competition
with 10,000 other beautiful leaves,
submitted by enthusiastic Canadians from Coast to Coast. The
leaf, a thing of sheer beauty, was
selected by such outstanding
artists as C. W. Simpson, R.C.A.,
R, W. Pilot, R.C.A., and James
Urockert.
In the largest leaf phase of the
competition, six-year-old Bobby
Hume, of Revelstoke, B.C., made
an astonishing win with a leaf
showing an area of 222 square
inches.
The success which greeted the
original competition this year hai
encouraged Canadian Pacific officials to plan for another competition on a larger and more comprehensive scale next fall.

Tlhe problem of truck-rail competition was declared a national
one by S. Hayes, M.A., in a recent address before the Engineering Institute. He saw regulation and restriction in areas
where the truck does not belong as the only solutions.
Christmas festivities this year
will be enlivened by Japanese
oranges of which 38,400 boxea
arrived at Victoria recently
aboard the Empress of Canada,
for distribution to a number of
Canadian cities. 6,000 boxes were
left at Victoria and the fruit
will doubtless feature in the
Empress Hotel Yuletide celebrations.
Since October 1, 1930, a total
of 101,765 people have been settled on Canadian farms or given
farm employment under the auspices of the Dominion Department of Immigration and the
two great transcontinental railway companies, according to a
report issued by the Department
of Immigration. 89,236 of these
people were settled without financial assistance.
Expression of confidence in a
brighter business outlook in
Canada, coupled with definite
improvement in conditions
throughout the Dominion, was
made recently by H. J. Humphrey, general manager, Canadian Pacific Railway, eastern
lines, in an interview during his
trip of inspection to the Maritimes prior to the opening of
the winter navigation season.
Five ports hitherto not touched
at by world cruises — Penang,
Straits Settlements; Semarang,
Java; Boeleleng and PadangBay,
Bali; and Zamboanga in the
Zula Archipelago — have been
added to the 1934 itinerary of
the Canadian Pacific liner Empress of Britain, sailing from
New York January 4. The cruise
will cover 133 days and 30,916
miles and will return to New.
York May 14.
Special low fares with generous time limits for the return
trip will be available on Canadian railroads for the Christmas and New Year holiday periods, it is announced by C. P.
Riddell, chairman, Canadian
Passengers' Association. These
low rate tickets will be good between all stations in Canada and
also between points in Canada
and certain United States connections.
