T. J. Shenton Ind. Labor
Candidate Opens Campaign
The first shot in the political campaign of the forthcoming general
election was fired at Alice Arm on
Wednesday evening by Mr. T. J.
Shenton, independent labor candidate for Atlin constituency. He
delivered a rapid-fire speech, during
which he explained why he was in
the field as a labor candidate, and
his qualifications to look after the
interests of the electors. He also
reviewed at considerable length the
cause of the present depression.
How the workers were the chief
sufferers and advanced plans for the
remedying of the situation. Mr.
Shenton proved an eloquent speaker. He was sincere in his statements, and from present appearances the conservatives and liberals

I energetic campaign, as soon as the
! election date is decided, if either
■■ of them expect to win.
I Mr. Shenton explained that no
W strings were attached, to.him as a
labor candidate. He believed that
he was qualified to represent the
Atlin constituency as he was thoroughly acquainted with every mine
and prospect in it. During the
campaign he hoped for a clean
fight, and would refrain from any
mud slinging at older political
One of the chief causes of Canada's present distress, the speaker
blamed to the mismanagement of
our natural resources. These he
said should never have been handed
over to big corporations. Up-to-
date machinery was also blamed for
largely helping to swell our unemployment ranks. In quoting a
leading economist, he said: We
have come to a crisis, we have to
change, and we are not ready for it.
I don't believe in high tariffs, Mr.
Shenton said. They hamper trade
with other countries. He advocated
the nationalization of banks. Why
he asked should the governments of
Canada be forced to beg money
from private banks.
He advocated the government
controlling the natural resources of
the country for the common good.
The speaker was not in favor of revolutionary measures to affect a
change. He believed that efforts
should be made to make the change
peaceably. But there may be
trouble ahead if this depression is
not stopped he said.
Note—Owing to the necessity of
printing the Herald on Thursday
evening this week to catch.the mail
to Anyox, it is impossible to publish
a full report of Mr. Shenton's meeting. A more detailed report will
be published in our next issue.
Anyox Residents Have
Boating Mishaps
On the evening of Wednesday,
June 22nd, Walter Feyer and James
Campbell set out in a gas boat" for
Six Mile. On making ready to return the "kicker" refused to kick,
and no amount of coaxing could induce it to function. The pair had
no alternative but to tramp home,
arriving at 1 a.m. The boat was
towed in next morning by R.
On the same evening, June 22nd.
Mr. R. McLeod and Miss Peacock
started out on the "Lady Luck" for
a run up the coast. Reaching a
picturesque spot they made the boat
fast and started inland for a hike,
discovering on their return that the
tide had gone out and left the
"Lady Luck" high and dry. There
was nothing to be done but wait
for the tide, and they arrived home
at 5.30 the next a.m., to the great
relief of their friends.
On Saturday, June 18th. Mr. S.
Hopkins and Miss B. Flye each had
a ducking when returning from a

Shower Held For Anyox
How fortunate is the modern
bridel No sooner is the date of her
wedding made known than her
friends begin to arrange showers,
some of which are more like cloudbursts. Such was the case at the
shower held for Miss Nancy Wilson
on June 22nd. Her many friends
in Anyox rained upon her a regular
storm of useful and handsome gifts.
The affair, which was arranged
by Mrs. J. Evans, assisted by Mrs.
J. Peel and Mrs. G. Adams, was
held in the Hall of the Union
Church, and was largely attended.
Vocal items were contributed by
Mrs. T. Pinckney, accompanied by
Mrs. J. McMillan, and a session of
community singing was indulged in.
Afterwards the company adjourned to the Oddfellows' Hall, where
they were joined by their gentlemen
friends in an evening of dancing,
at which Mr. J. Evans was the
unique Master of Ceremonies. In
his own apt way "Jack" applied
every number played to the circumstances of the evening. Excellent
music was supplied by Joe Peel and
his orchestra, and a very hearty
vote of thanks was accorded them
at the close.

Anyox Golf Notes
The Lovested Cup for the month
of June, which goes to the player
making the lowest net score in
tournament play during the month,
was won by J. Murdoch with a net
of 69.
On account of the many diversions planned for Dominion Day,
July 1st. there will be no golf
tournament on that day.
The tournament for the Men's
Open Championship of the Anyox
Golf Club, which carries with it the
handsome trophy presented by the
Granby Stores, will commence
July 2nd.
A flutter of excitement passed
over the camp on Friday last, when
the Prince George docked from
Vancouver, for it was discovered
that Mr. M. A. McKenzie, who left
Anyox some weeks ago for a vacation, had returned with a bride.
Mrs. McKenzie was formerly Mrs.
A. Osborne, who resided in Anyox
some six years ago.
The wedding which was a very
quiet one, took place at the Anglican Church, West Vancouver, on
June 22nd., the Rev. E. Ramsey
performing the ceremony. Mr.
McKenzie, who is well liked and
greatly respected in Anyox, was
immediately showered with congratulations and good wishes from his
many friends.
Mrs. W. J. Porter and son arrived on Monday from Vancouver, to
join her husband here. Mr. and
Mrs. Porter will reside in the Flats
Miss Agnes Wardrope returned
on Monday from a short holiday
spent in Prince Rupert.
Anyox Baseball Players Will
Visit Ketchikan
At the zero hour on July 2nd—
which fact will not dampen their
ardor in any way—approximately
13 of the best ball players of Anyox,
together with a group of enthusiastic fans, will leave Anyox to launch
their attack on Ketchikan. The
number thirteen wont deter them
either. Three games will be played
in that town; viz, on July 3 and 4.
All arrangements in connection
with   the   trip are complete.

Fast Football Tussle
Exerting themselves to even
matters up with their old rivals
the Celts, the men from under
heath oame to the top and won by
a 1-0 score. v*
It was a ding-dong go all the
jway. The Mine were at full
'strength, including the agile Jimmy

the game for long) and presented a
strong, well balanced team that
will have to be oarefully reckoned
Morrison, their captain, is playing
aggressive and clever football in
whatever position he finds himself
obliged to take. The Celts played
with nice combination, although a
little stiffening up in places appears necessary. Horner is quickly
getting back to his old form at
centre forward. The Peel brothers
played well, Steve being fast and
Joe as reliable as ever. Alec Rigby
and Herbert Johnston play strong
defence. Buntain is quite at home
on the wing, so much so that one
of the players on the Mine side, has
to resort to the childish expedient
of kioking the ball out of play.
This occurred no less than six times,
and is very irritating to the spectators. The evening was ideal for
football and a nice number of fans
turned out. Bob McMillan handled
the game.

Bear Found Devouring
Dead Fire Victim
At Stewart
The body of Andrew Johnson,
who lost his life in a fire, which destroyed the assay office of the Out
land Silver Bar Mining Co. on the
Salmon River near Stewart, some
time early last winter, was found
last week by Constable Potterton,
Gus Erickson and "Blondy" Chart
ton of Stewart.
The body had been buried in the
deep snow all winter, and had only
been uncovered two or three days.
A gruesome scene met the eyes of
the party on their arrival. A huge
grizzly bear was feeding off the
body, and they had considerable
difficulty in forcing the bear' to
leave. An examination of the body
showed that this was the bear's
second visit. Although the bear
had eaten a considerable* portion of
the stomach, the lower portion of
one leg and the upper portion of
the other, the body was easily
recognized, though badly burned
about the back and remaining portions of the legs and feet.
The only clothing on the body
was a shirt, which proved that
Johnson was in bed at the time of
the fire and did not wake in time to

good ball. Steven's backing was
of the best, and the Wildcats, after
their first scoreless inning "managed
to hit the ball enough times to
scratch out a win.

T. J. Shenton Organizes
For Campaign
T. J. Shenton, independent labor
candidate lor the Atlin constituency
in the forthcoming election, arrived
at Alice Arm on Monday from
Prince Rupert. He spent four days
here and left on Friday morning
for Anyox.
His visit here was in connection
with the forming of an organization
to take care of his interests until
the general Provincial election takes
place. A local organization has
been formed and officers elected to
carry on the campaign in the interests of Mr. Shenton.
In an interview with the Herald
Mr, Shenton stated that he would
run as an independent labor candidate. At present it was doubtful
whether an election would be held
this year, but it was probable that
it would be held this coming fall.
In order not to be caught unprepared he was visiting Alice Arm, Anyox
and Stewart, and holding organization meetings.
The ladies of the Catholic Church
desire to extend their thanks to all
those who, by their assistance and
patronage, helped towards the
success of their recent Sale of work.
Special thanks are hereby given to
Mr. C. P. Ashmore for his willing
co-operation and courtesy in having
displayed in the store, the quilt
which was raffled at the function.
