The A. C. L. Christmas
Dance Big Success
The Anyox Community League
held their annual Christmas Dance
in the Gymnasium on Monday,
December 24th. The hall was
beautifully decorated with the season's colors and Christmas tree
branches. The music for dancing
was played by Buntain's Orchestra
and their willing efforts to please
the tastes of everyone were highly
appreciated by the many people
present at this important social
function, which marks the closing
of social entertainments by the
League, for the year 1934. Hats
and horns were distributed early in
the evening and added to the gaiety
of the occasion. A very tasty
turkey supper served in the dining
room further ensured the success
of the evening. One hundred and
seventy-five couples were present.
Alice Arm Notes
Weather Changed Suddenly
One of those sudden changes of
weather that is experienced in this
district occasionally occurred last
week-end when the mild balmy
weather that we have enjoyed for
many months came to au abrupt
end. It turned suddenly oold and
the thermometers immediately
registered zero weather, and this
has continued throughout the week,
All hopes of a mild open winter
were quickly shattered.
Miss Florence Dodsworth left on
Saturday for Anyox in order to
spend the holidays with her parents.
Miss Marguerite Moss arrived oi
Monday from Prince Rupert and
is spending Christmas and New
Tear with her parents.
Arthur Bower and Ted Kergin
arrived from Anyox on Christmas
Evo, and spent Christmas and part
of the following day at their homes.
J. Weir arrived from Anyox on
Christmas Eve. in order to spend
Christmas with Mrs. Weir. He
was accompanied by M. Cranley,
who was the guest of Mr. aud Mrs.
Weir during the holiday.
Mrs. H. P, Kergin left ou Wednesday for Prince Rupert where
she will spend a week's vacation
with her cister-in-law, Mrs. W. T.
Kergin.
Mrs. Gill'' ft on Saturday
for Anyox wheie she will spend
the holidays with her husband.
Miss Nadine and Wesley Wenerstrom arrived from Anyox on
Thursday and are spending holidays with Mr. and Mrs. 0. Evindsen.
To the Electors Of
Atlin Riding
Determination in the face of odds
has been the chief quality exhibited by the residents of Northern
British Columbia to achieve the
satisfactory results of developing
new mines.
Many promising: prospects are
under development und with intelligent mining effort, plus the requisite capital, should bring marked progress in 1935.
It will be my endeavor at the
coming session of the legislature, to
impress upon the government of
British Columbia, the very important part this great northland is
able to take in the successful development of the industrial life of this
Province.
I extend to you ray sincerest
hopes that we may all be able to
share in this now past due prosperity of Northern British Columbia.
Wishing you the Compliments of
the Season.
W. J. ASSELSTINE, M.L-A.
Phone Call From Halifax To
Anyox Christmas Morning
At 10 o'clock on Christmas morning Mrs. Eld of Anyox, had a telephone call from her son Clarence
in Halifax, Nova Scotia. This is
the longest phone call put through
to Anyox to date, the previous
longest call having been from New
York. Mrs Eld received the message at her residence in the Hotel,
and states that it came through
quite clearly. It may not be generally known that these long distance
communications come right across
the continent by telephone, and by
radio from Vancouver.
Dance Followed  Mine
Children's Party
After clearing away the debris
caused by the Children's Party and
Christmas Tree on Saturday evening, December 22nd., the energetic
Council of the Mine Branch of the
A. C. L. treated the residents to a
dance, for which there was no
charge. The original idea was, to
give the grown-ups a short session
of dancing at the close of the children's function, but it developed into
a real dance which lasted until the
late midnight hour. A most
enjoyable evening was' spent and
tasty refreshments were served
during the evening. Once more
the Mine Council have upheld their
reputation as good hosts to the
people whose social interests they
are responsible for.
The Anyox Boy Scouts were
Santa Claus to the Alice Arm
children this Christmas. They
sent over quite a consignment of
toys from their toyshop aud the , ,       .,      . ..,      ,    ,

The annual Christmas Tree and
entertainment of the Alice Arm
children was held on Friday the
21st. Owing to the impossibility
of the Herald staff attending any
function held on a Friday, due to
long working hours in printing the
Herald and other work, for distribution early on Saturday morning,
we are not able to give a report of
this annual event, as we have done
in past years.     We understand,

Beach Children Guests
Of A.C.L. AtBig
Party
Santa Claus never had a more
rousing reception than was accorded him at the Gymnasium on Friday afternoon, December 21st.,
when the A. C. L. Annual Children's Party was held. It is believed that every child residing at the
Beach was present and had the time
of his or her life. The committee
of the A. C. L. were ably assisted
by several willing workers, who
did much to add to the success of
the occasion. After a succession
of games the children adjourned
for a turkey supper, and needless to
say, did ample justice to all the
good things provided for them.
After supper the fun was fast
and furious, and when Jack Bun-
tain's Orchestra made its appearance the joy of the youngsters knew
no bounds. The orchestra generously played several numbers for
dancing, the youngsters taking
every advantage of the chance thus
afforded and being loud in their demands for more.
Much credit is due to Mr. Frank
Dresser, who played for all the
games and marches, and to such
willing helpers as Mrs. Smith, Mrs.
Macintyre, Mrs. Marston, Mrs.
Kydd, Mrs. Patrick, Mrs. Wenerstrom and Mrs. Manning, who
assisted at the supper and with the
games, etc. Santa Claus presented each child with a bag of Christmas cheer. It was rumoured that
Mr. James Thompson had been
noted in the vicinity of the Gym.
early in the evening, but if so he
did not make himself known to
those present.
// is the sincere wish of the Herald, that all its readers will enjoy a
Happy New Year and that good health, happiness and prosperity will be
their lot throughout the coming year. If they are forced to move from
this district, we hope that the best of good luck attends their efforts, and
that they will have no cause for regrets, regarding any step they may take
to better their condition during 1935.
Christmas at Anyox Bright
And Gay as Ever
Old Man Gloom to Anyox came
To give us all long faces;
But Santa Claus chased him away
From this, the best of places.
"Merry Christmas" resounded
throughout the town of Anyox on
Christmas Eve and on the Day of
Days, when people relaxed, made
merry, and enjoyed one of the best
Christmas seasons they have had.
Christmas cheer and hearty good
fare were in glasses and dishes
everywhere, (There we go again!)
It seemed that everyone realized
their good fortune in being able to
enjoy a happy Christmas and made
the most of it. Our many years of
prosperity are indeed something for
which we are all thankful.

The Old Year and
The New
On Monday night next  we shall
bid the old year farewell and joyfully welcome the new, with hope that
conditions will improve during 1935.
In looking back over the past year,
we have, as a whole not   fared too
badly if we draw comparison with
some other parts of the  Province
and Dominion.   The  Anyox plant
has operated without interruption
during the whole year employing
steadily from  HOO to  1250   men
continuously.       Any  district   that
can  show this record at the end of
the year is indeed fortunate.   The
Alice Arm district did not show any
gains during the past year, which
is regretable, but during the past
twelve mouths the price of silver
has steadily advanced, until now it
has reached a price that,  if it was
certain that it would be stabilized
at present prices for an indefinite
period, or advance a few more cents,
mining operations on a fairly large
scale would probably be undertaken.
The gold ores of the Alice Arm district have also been given publicity
recently, and it is very possible that
the ground work carried on this
year will result in gold mining activity during 1935.    The old year
brought us the bad news of a probable close down of the Anyox plant.
Will 1935 see the end ot this big
industry is a question that has been
asked a great number of times.     It
is possible that it may.    If it does
it will mean the end of a  good
many things in this district and the
coming year will always be regarded as a black one for   Northern
British   Columbia.       About  2500
men, women and  children  will be
forced   to   seek new homes,  and
friendships of many years standing
will be broken.    Let us hope for
the best.    The price of copper may
rise within the next few months to
make any such action unnecessary.
All we can do is to hope for the
best and if adversity comes our way
to face our difficulties like men.
Federal Election Possible In
October
The conservative party will start
preparations for the Dominion election campaign soon after the Christmas and New Year holidays, it is
believed in political quarters.
No official announcement has yet
been made of the election date but
it is said in well-informed quarters
that it has been tentatively fixed to
take place early in October. Much
however, may depend upon what
happens at the forthcoming session
The Steamship Prince
George Has Enviable
Record
When the Canadian National
steamship Prince George sailed
north two weeks ago, she commenced her 1,000th run in the British Columbia coast-Alaska service.
Of the four skippers who have
commanded her during her many
years of service in coastal waters,
three are still living. Capt. George
Robertson, her first Skipper, is now
Director of Pilotage for the federal
government at Ottawa. Capt. F.
T. Saunders, who succeeded Capt.
Robertson, is now Superintendent
of Pilots for British Columbia and
located in Vancouver. Capt. VV.
S. Moorhouse, third to command
the George is now deceased and also
joined the pilot service on quitting
the Canadian National service.
Capt. H. E. Nedden, her fourth
and.present Commander, is a past-
president of the Canadian Merchant
Service Guild and still, a director of
that organization.
In her lifetime on the Pacific
Coast the Prince George has had a
colorful career, witnessing the
growth of a tremendous touristl
trade to Alaska and the upbuilding
of many communities of Canada's
west coast. The Prince George also
saw service during the Great War.
She was commissioned as a hospital ship and found herself decked
out in a new suit of white with a red
cross adorning her middle funnel.
Built by Swan Hunter and engin-
ed by Walesend Engineering Company, Newcastle-on-Tyne, the Prince
George was a model of perfection
when she first reached the coast,
and subsequent improvements have
kept her still one of the finest vessels in the northern run.

East Fattens at Expense
Of British Columbia
British Columbia is working its
head off drumming up business in
foreign markets which is then pour-

of Eastern Canada, with the result
that this province has an unfavorable trade balance with the east
which amounted last year to $90,-

declared in a statement last week,
rapping back at eastern critics of
the province's attempt to control
interprovincial export under marketing laws.
The whole business showed, Mr.
Pattullo said, need for adjustment
of the economic relationship ol the
province through a change in the
federal constitution.

Beauty and Banff, the heart of the famous Canadian Rockies are synonymous and as like attracts
like it is not surprising to find such a bevy of beauty
as is shown in the accompanying pictures, disporting itself in the beautiful Bwimming pools ofthe Canadian Pacific Railway's palatial Banff Springs Hotel.
There are two baths, one of naturally heated sulphur
water and the other of ordinary stream water, both
of which are extremely popular with the many
visitors to the renowned summer resort. Recreations
in infinite variety run the gamut of sportB from golf
to mountaineering. Real cowboys are on hand to take
trail-riders through the innumerable passes of the
historic mountains, while Stoney IndianB and scarlet-
coated "Mounties" add yet another touch to the
already colorful scene. Banff is something that has
to be seen to be appreciated. Its devotees come
yearly from the four corners of the globe. There is
always something new; always something to do, and
when the long happy day is over, dancing to the smart
orchestras in the spacious bell   room of the hotel
forms a fitting prelude to a restful night in the health-
giving mountain atmosphere. Yes, Banff is beauty
aad beauty is Banff a*d the smiles on the faces of its
mermaids speak volumes for the happiness of this
great playground.
Breaking New Trails in the Rockies
fvery year the Order of the Trail Riders of the
Canadian Rockies gathers together its devotees
who set out into the unknown, or the almost unknown, on mountain ponies from, the starting point
at the Banff Springs Hotel or Chateau Lake Louise.
For those new to the game there is a trail ride of
a few days,.covering, however, little travelled paths,
while for the expert there is a ride of three weeks
penetrating to the heart of the Rockies, and both
end in a Grand Pow-wow or campfire meeting where
songs are sung and the feeling of general jollity
is perpetuated. These Trail rides are held in August
when the weather is at its best and lovers of the outdoors gain an experience which, even if they never
.-epeat it, will furnish them with memories and
stories for a life-time. Every year new trails are
broken, the one last year being over Gibbon Pass,
named after the founder of the Order. The rides
attract travellers from every part of the continent
and from Europe, and some 1,600 of them are now
enrolled in the Order. ■*,-.'r

Pass, taking a rest at Shadow Lake with Mount Ball

Anglican Church Christmas Tree Was Big
Success
The annual Christmas Tree for
Christ Church Sunday School was
held in the gymnasium on Wednesday afternoon, Deoember 2(>th
The first part of the. afternoon was
taken up with the playing of
games befitting the youngest as
well as the oldest boy and girl
present. Later Frank Allan made
an appearance and played several
aooordian selections and a few
dance numbers which were greatly
appreciated by the children. A
supper was then served in the dining room by the members of the
W. A. and Guild. The children
had lots of fun delving into their
Christmas crackers which were
placed before the plates, and afterwards they showed how popular
was the delicious jelly and ice
cream.
The arrival of Santa Claus at
the close of the supper made quite
a stir, especially among the younger children. Every boy and girl
received a present and a bag of
candy and nuts. Santa also gave
a present to each of the five Sunday School teachers and he had a
special gift for each of the several
mothers present
The afternoon was brought to a
close after several of the children
had either sung, recited or danced.
Their efforts were well received
and proved very entertaining.
Christ Church Sunday School

all those who helped in any way to
make the afternoon the success it
was and especially do they thank
the ladies of the Women's Auxiliary & Guild who provided the
supper and gave of llieir time so
willingly.

Here and Th
ere
A further concession to the travelling public is announced by
C. P. Itiddell, Chairman, Canadian
Passenger Association, ln the
statement that in future one-
month round trip railway tickets
previously good for continuous
passage only between departure
point and destination, will be
valid for stop-over at intermediate points going and returning.
For many years Canadian railways have been selling one-month
round trip tickets ut twice the
one-way fare, less ten per cent.,
good for conlinous passuso only.
Now, the stop-over pi-ivilega is
granted without any increase in
fare and passengers deciding en
route to stop over, may <'o so on
application to the conductor. This
concession, it is felt by railway
officials, will do much to further
promote travel by rail in Canada.
W. E. Allison, lanager of mail
and baggage traffic, Canadian Pacific Railway, lm been elected
vice-president of the American
Association of General Baggage
Agenls, comprising representatives of all the railways on this

The Minerals of British Columbia
This Province offers excellent opportunities for useful and
profitable investment.     British Columbia has produced
OVER $1,352,000,000 WORTH OF MINERALS.
The gross value of mineral production for the six months
ended June 30th. 1934, exclusive of gold premium, is
estimated at $18,667,691.00, an increase of 50.5 per cent,
over the estimated value of the production in the corresponding six-month period of 1933.
COLD PRODUCTION: Gold production showed a
decided increase; a total return in Canadian funds
to the gold producers of British Columbia during the
first six months for 1934 being approximately
$5,028,124.00, an increase of 81.3 per cent, over
the return in Canadian funds received during the
first half of 1933.

A.C.L. Children's Party
At Mine Surpasses
All Records
Surpassing all previous efforts of
this kind ever held, the Children's
Party and Christmas Tree held in
the Mine Hall on Saturday afternoon, December 22ud. was a splendid success. The enjoyments provided were an illuminated Christmas Tree with Santa Claus in attendance; a handsome gift for every
child residing at the Mine; an
abundance of candies and fruit;
a variety of games; a number of
songs and other items by various
artists.
The children turned out in masquerades, and several handsome
prizes were awarded. The win
tiers were: Best dressed Girl.
Eleanor Blundell as "Old Fashioned Girl;" Best dressed Boy, Bobby
Carr as "Spanish Gentleman;"
Best-sustained Characters, Mary
McDonald as "Snow Girl," Malcolm Campbell as ''Snow Man;"
Best comic Girl, Kenneth McLean
as "Old Lady;" Jack Ferguson as
''Old Man;" Best Original Characters, tlu Wallace Twins as "Gold
Dust Twins." A special prize was
awarded to dainty little Yvonne
Normandeau, who was dressed as a
fairy.
Santa Claus carried out all the
traditions attached to his name,
delighting the youngsters with his
antics. There appeared to be a
resemblance between the venerable
gentleman and a certain rubicund
individual active in minstrel circles
but this may have been only a
passing fanoy.
Cyril Watsor. sang: "Little Dutch
Mill," and Ed. Blundell, in Ins iiiT
imitable style, gave Little Grass
Shack," with everyone joining iu
the chorus. Bob Brown also sang
some favorite numbers. Frank
Dumont was the capable accompanist. Mention must be made of
the splendid work done by Mrs. C.
Eklof and her daughter Miss Betty
Muir, who had the interests of the
children at heart. They assisted
in tbe selection and parcelling of
the prizes, helped in the general
arrangements of the affair, and
also took charge of the supper for
the   dance   which   followed.
The committee in charge was:
Walter Forsbaw, Tim Waterland,
11. Brown, W. Gourlay and Al.
White. Following the party a
dance was held for the grown-nps,
details of which are reported in
another column.
