Easter Entertainment
Held at Alice Arm
The concert and entertainment
held at the Alice Arm Coliseum,
on Thursday evening, April 20th,
before a large and enthusiastic
audience, was undoubtedly „ the
J most successful affair ever staged
| in Alice Arm. The lengthy programme included solos, recitations,
drills and choruses by the children,
and a 2-act comedy, and the whole
! programme was carried through
without a hitch., The drills and
choruses by the children were excellent in every way, and all were
done with clock-like precision,
I which reflects great credit for
those who * were instrumental in
training the children. The recitations and songs given by the
; different children were exceedingly
well rendered, and drew rounds of
applause from the audience,
Solos and recitations of a *,high
order were rendered by various
artists, several being5 enoored. A
special feature was the dancing of
the Highland Fling by Mrs. Laid-
law, who proved that besides being
a cartoonist of no mean ability, she
is also an excellent dancer." In fact.
a lot of latent talent was brought
to light ou Thursday evening.
The 2-act comedy, "Striking the
Blow" kept the audience in roars
of laughter from start to finish.
The energetic way. in whioh the
husband hunting old girls waggled
their heads during their conversation, and the superb acting of Mr.
M. D. Ross, as the "crabby old

bachelor" were special features.
During the interval of the programme the drawing of the winning
ticket for the large oake donated
by Mrs. G. Bruggy took place, and
Harry Fowler was the lucky man.
He promptly auctioned it off. The
bidding started at $5 and rapidly
rose to $10, for which sum it was
knocked down to 'Mr. T. W.
Falconer.
The entertainment was brought
to a close at 10.30 p.m., after two-
and-a-half hours of music, mirth,
and merriment, by the singing of
the National Anthem and the
children were then presented with
toys and candy, after which cocoa
and doughnuts were first served to
the children and then to the adults,
which brought to a close one of the
most memorable nights in the
history of the camp.
.Great credit is due to Mrs. T. W.
Falconer, Mrs. G. Bruggy, Mrs. C.
P. Riel, Miss Nettie Hogburg, and
Mf. E. R. Oatman—who composed
the organizing committee—for the
pahisiiakitignianner^iri which they
drilled the children1 and numerous
other items which such an undertaking-entails. They wish to take
this opportunity to excess their
thanks to all those who helped in
any way toward the succees of the
evening. Special prajse is due to
Mrs. G. Anderson and the ladies
who assisted her in supplying the
refreshments.

Special Easter Services
held in Anyox Churches
Easter Day was fittingly commemorated at Christ Church, on
Sunday last, there being a celebration of the Holy Communion at 8
a.m., and also at the close of the
Evening Service. The Children's
Service in the afternoon was well
attended by both children and
parents. Special music was rendered at the Evening Servioe, at
which there was a large and
appreciative congregation.
The choir, under the able con-
ductorship of Mr. J. Pinder-Moss,
sung the anthem, "O Radiant
Morn." Mr. Pinder-Moss delighted
the congregation with the selection
from Handel's "Messiah," Thus
saith the Lord," and aria "But
who may abide."
The preacher, Rev. J; B. Gibson,
chose' his text from Phil. 3. 10,
"That I may know him and the
power of His Resurrection," on
which he based the Easter Message
of the assurance of immortality;
the assurance of the reality of the
next world; the assurance of recognition of the ultimate triumph of
the spiritual overibe material; of
right over wrong.
The Church was beautifully decorated for the ocoasion with
evergreens, flowers and lillios, and
reflected great credit on , those
responsible, among whom were:
Mrs. Armstrong, Mrs. Eve, Mrs.
McKnight, Mrs. Rice, and Mr. and
Mrs. Foxley.
Mass was celebrated at the
Roman Catholic Churoh, at 6.30
a.m., an^ High Mass at 10 a.m.,
which was fully choral. Ther,e
was an evening Service at 7.30.

Rev. Father Fleck was the Resurrection of Christ.
Th^ Rev. J. Herdman, of the
Union Church, preached on the
Fact of Immortality, text, John
14-2 "If it were not so, I would
not have told you." Two quartettes . were rendered, "Christ
Arose" and "Calvary" by Mrs.
Tankin and Mrs. Galloway, and
Messrs. F. Morrow and T. Sailes.

The Drug Habit.
The use of various drugs, especially in this province, is assuming
alarming proportions and it is high
time drastic measures were taken
to eliminate the evil. We spend
enormous sums of money every
year in order to eradicate the pests
that destroy our crops, and extreme
measures are also taken to stop the
influx of foreign pests into this
country. If as much energy was
shown to exterminate the dope
peddlers that infest our cities and
also to stop their influx into this
country it would not now be nee-*
essary to build hospitals for the
treatment of drug addicts. We
kill all vermin on sight that destroy
our live-stock arid our crops, but
the dope peddler who is sapping
the life of the young and best of
the nation is fined a small sum, or.
spends a year in jail at the most.
The use of drugs is not yet so
great but that it can be stopped.
The habit is rapidly growing, and
the quicker the authorities suppress
it the less trouble and expense it
will be at some future date.
Prospecting
It is said that there is a dearth
of prospectors in British Columbia
and the statement is no doubt true,
but the cause is hot hard to find.
The mining industry has been at
a low ebb for the past two or
three years and consequently the
big mining companies have spent
very little money in developing
prospects. The cost of prospecting also is considerably higher than
in pre-war times, due to the increased cost of tools, powder, etc.,
and the prospector can not spend
as much time in the hills as he
formerly could. The mining industry is rapidly getting to be too
much of a cold-blooded proposition
to suit the old-timer. The old
boom days, except in very rare
instances are a thing of the past.
The time is gone when it was
possible to sell anything within five
miles of the "big strike" during the
height of a boom and thus make
"a stake." Mining engineers and
geologists now tour the province.
in the interests of the big companies and except in very rare
instances they will not take over a
property and develop it unless a
large tonnage of ore has' already
been proven up, and this the
average prospector has not the
money to' do. The result is,
the old-time prospector gets tired
of packing in supplies and working
on his claims year after year, and
finally quits the game, and the
younger men seeing his predicament
are loth to spend all their time and
money in the wilderness when the
chances of obtaining a fortune' are
so slight. Another drawback to
prospecting is the inaccessibility of
lots of good ore showings, and it is
hard to persuade the prospector to
develop them when he can not
dispose of his properties that are
near transportation. Prospecting
will be resumed just as soon as
money is obtainable for the development of promising prospects
throughout the province.
With regard to the Cedar Creek,
Cariboo developments, Mr. R. W.
Haggen, leading land surveyor and
hydraulic engineer of the district
has made' a statement, in which he
says:' "Knowing the district fairly
well and having the history of
previous strikes in Cariboo, I have
faith in the section as a mining
field. However, having that faith,
and being perhaps unduly optimistic, I have no hesitation in
describing the projected rush as
absolute madness. While numerous prospectors have come up
recently, weather conditions are
altogether too unfavorable; a tremendous area has already been
staked in every direction from
Discovery, and staked without
rhyme or reason, and certainly the
ground in any way close to
Discovery was staked by friends of
the discoverers before publioity was
given to the field."  .
Homestake Involved
in Litigation
To set aside a series of transactions in connection with the
Homestake Group of mineral claims
at the head of the Kitsault River,
Alice Arm, and to obtain a court
declaration of ownership thereof,
the Mineral Claims Development
Co., Ltd., have instituted action in
the Supreirie! Court against the
Consolidated Homestake Mining
& Development Company and
other parties.
"My candle burns at both ends;
It will not last the night;
But, oh, my foes, and oh, my friends,
It gives a lovely light."
Two more logging camps will
shortly oommence operations in the
vicinity of Alice Arm. Mr. J.
Wheatley will operate a camp a
short distance from Silver City
and will cut over 1,500,000 feet of
lumber for the Georgetown sawmills.    „
Fred Miller has made arrangements with the Granby Co. to log
off their limits at Way Point and
also put all timber in the water
that was fallen by the Granby Co.
some time ago.
Both camps will employ donkey
engines for hauling the logs and
will employ about 12 or 15 men
each. Work on camps and getting
material on the ground is already
under way and logging operations
will commence in a few days.

ALICE ARM
Alice Arm is going to boom,
And it is coming very soon;
Don't fret about the days-to come,
For Alice Armis going to hum;
Don't think the treasure hi the ground
Will never hear the drill's sweet sound:
Don't think the trees upon the hill
Are standing there for gas to kill;    .
For things like that can never be,
And very shortly you will see    -•"'
The miners drilling in the pre,.
And loggers booming on the shore;
The future of the Arm is bright,
And you will see that we are right.
A^man will promise a woman or
