Homestake Mine to
Resume Operations
in March
Already plans are being made
for an early resumption, of mining
activity on the upper Kitsault. •
The Homestake Mining Company
who did considerable development
work on the Homestake property
last summer with highly satisfactory results are planning to resume
operations in March. This company has receutly been re-orgariized
and it is their intention to do
considerable development work on
the property this year. .
It is planned to ship a small
compressor to the property in
Maroh and start development
work where it was left off last fall.
According to a new agreement
with the owners of the property,
the company have got to spend
$35,000 on development work this
year and the same amount next
year and the work to commence
before June.
The Homestake is a promising
looking property. Drifting in ore
. was being continued when the
property closed down last fall, and
it has all the appearances of developing into a shipping- mine at
early date.

Hockey Season
Opens at Anyox
Alice Arm and Anyox Play
first Game of Season
The opening game of this season's
matches to be contested between
Anyox and Alice Arm hockey
teams was played at Anyox, on
New Year's Day, when more than
300 fans witnessed a game that
was full of pep and excitement
from start to finish..
As the referee's whistle was out
of order "everything went" and
nothing interrupted the play from
the time the puck was faced off
until the teams skated off the ice,
for a short rest between periods.
Alice Arm opeued the score
early in the" first period, when
Anderson scored from a pass by Al.
Falconer. Anyox came back and
bulged the net twice in succession,
and at the finish of the first period
led by one goal.
In the second period, Oatman,
for the Arm broke"through and
slipped a clean shot past Waterman
thereby tieing the score, which
was not broken until play was
continued in the ' third ,period.
This period was brimful of excitement and dash, eaoh team alternatively bombarding the goalkeepers who were kept on the hop
continuously. Both Waterman
and Cameron played an A1 game
making wonderful saves, warding
off shots which looked like sure
scores. Anyox had the best of the
round, however, and added two
more goals to their tally, which
the Arm were unable to overcome,
although fighting hard right up to ,
the last.        s-
As the final score of 4 to 2 will
indicate, both teams were fairly
evenly matched and at all stages
of the play it was difficult to pick
the winner. What the Alice Arm
team gained in weight, the Anyox
team evened up by speed* and
condition. The Smoke Eaters are
a snappy aggregation and with
Down and Carlson as goal-getters,
will have to be watched closely by
the Alice Arm team if they want
to come out ahead at the end of
the season.
style.
The three most conspicuous
players of the Anyox team were
"Gravy" MoGammon, Carlson arid
Down, they played a hard, fast
game and kept their speed up ail
through. Waterman in goal played a good game and saved his team
from being scored against time
and again.
Following is a line up of the two
teams:

Community League
Christmas Party
To children .between 9 and
^16Ye$rsof Age
This being the first game of the
season it is too early to make a
final summing up of the individual
players of the teams. To the fans
witnessing the game, Oatman,
Anderson and Al. Falconer seemed
to be firing on six cylinders and
with little water in their gasoline.
Anderson played a good game,
especially for a novice,, and he is
improving all the time. Cameron
in goal played in veteran style, and
could not be blamed for any of the
goals that was scored against him.
T. W. Falconer and Kergin played
a good game on defense, and held
down the Anyox forwards in great

Advertising Space
The Red Bluff (Cal.) Daily
News submits this statement: "If
you had advertising space to sell,
and a payroll to meet, would you
sell your space to business men
who want it or would you hold it
for local people who won't take it
and who sometimes declare advertising does not pay.?"
The Hyder Alaska Miner in
commenting on the above, says:
"The question is one that concerns
newspaper editors everywhere. In
many places, notably smaller communities, the newspaper has a hard
struggle for existence. It may be
a live sheet, ably edited, but the
local merchant feels that "everybody knows him" and that it is
not necessary to advertise; that he
does about the same amount of
business anyway.
He fails to appreciate what it
means to his community to spread
the news abroad of its doings, of
its achievements and of its opportunities for newcomers.
Every new family means at least
$1,000 yearly spent in that community. Every merchant gets his
share of this.
In supporting the newspaper by
'advertising, the merchant encourages enterprise on the part of the
publisher, and the greater the publicity given the town and district,
the more rapid the growth.
The local newspaper is the
chamber of commerce and publicity
bureau combined. It should have
the support of everyone, to the end
that the greatest amount of good
may be accomplished.
Thousands of dollars' worth of
free advertising is given away
every year to the community by
the local newspaper. Every little
thing is boosted, and people
abroad begin to find out what a
fine place your town is.
Only in advertising can the local
newspaper find reward for its
effort. The subscriptions do not
more than pay for the cost of
publishing and delivering the paper,
In supporting the paper by advertising the merchant is contributing not only to his direct benefit
but to, the future of the community."
Anyox Community
League Children's
Christmas Tree
\       	
The Christmas Tree and Party
given by the Anyox Community
League, to all children under eight
years of age, at the Recreation
Hall, was a decided success, and
the little tots enjoyed themselves
to the limit. A large number of
parents were present to see the 25p
kiddies enjoy themselves. Mr. R.
Armour was chairman of the entertainment and Mr. Pat Barr was
chairman of the committee. Great
praise is due to them and also to
all the willing workers who contributed to the success of the evening.
Mr. Chas. Wing was in charge of
the refreshments, and he saw that
all the little stomachs were well
filled and that everyone was
happy.    •
At four p.m. Santa Claus
appeared. The stage setting was
a cottage with snow covered roof,
with a mill water wheel at one
corner, in motion. The house was
illuminated by a red light which
shone through the windows. On
the outside of the house was a sign
"Santa Claus, Toy Maker," and
the noise of his tools could be plainly heard just prior to his
appearance. Santa, with his usual
generosity presented the eager
children with gifts, and then it
was time for the little tots to go
home. As they left the hall, Chas.
Wing presented each one with a
bag of candies, nuts and fruit.
The scene painting was executed
by Pat Barr. It was admirably
done and reflects great credit on
Mr. Barr.
MINING AND OTHER
NEWS ITEMS
The Omineoa district will get the
sum of $79,500 this year to spend
on government roads and bridges.

sum of $78,000 for similar work.
Coal from the Betty Seam, which
outcrops on the Telkwa River, will
be shipped to Prinoo Rupert, this
winter. The tonnage shipped from
this mine during 1921, has been
estimated at 865 tons.
The Silverado Mine at Stewart
is sacking ore, and every effort will
be made to get. out as much ore as
possible during the winter. Only
one shift is working underground

of the management to increase the
working staff as soon as ore shipments commence.
The announcement has been
made by the officials of the Silver
Standard Mining Company that
they intend to resume operations at
their mine at New Hazelton
immediately following the New
Year. A great quantity of silver
lead ore has been blocked out and
it is the intention of the management to mine this for early shipment.
It is proposed to continue silver
mining operations throughout the
Yukon. The Yukon Gold Company contemplates blasting all
winter with electric drills, and the
Bradley interests will prospect all
winter at their new camp at Keno
Hill.

was ^ two days' job stringing
j!e buckets onto the cable, and the
■st ore to bo loaded was started
)m the mine today.     There are
0 buokets, with a capacity of 800
unds each, or a total capacity for
e buckets of 100 tons.   So when
ie first bucket out from the upper
inkers  returns,   the guaranteed
pacity of the tram, 100 tons, will
tve been delivered at the lower
inkers.   On the start the buckets
ill  not  be  loaded to their full
ipacity, but will be worked up to
as the equipment is rounded into
erfect running order.
The tram was built under con-
act by the B. C. Riblet Tramway
d. of Spokane, with T. H. Graham
charge of construction. Mr.
raham has been building tram
nes for 26 years, and has been
with the Riblet people for 20 years.
The feat he has just accomplished
of finishing in one short season, the
longest serial tram on the American
Continent, and under a series of
adverse happenings, is one that
speaks volumes for his executive
ability and engineering skill.

Mr. Fred Stork, member-elect
for the Skeena, states that Jie is at
work on a comprehensive scheme
of improvement 'whereby to solve
the problem of communication

government for the increasing of
the Digby Island wireless station
at Prince Rupert and the establishing of wireless stations at
Stewart, Alice Arm, Whitehorse,
Atlin, Dawson and necessary
points now served by the overland
wire. This would not, cost anything like the amount involved to
put the old line in order and would
ensure a service that would be in

to conserve is strongest.
