Poppy Day Inspiration
For Children's
Sponsored by the Collison of
Kincolith Chapter, I. 0. D. E., an
oratorial contest among the students
of the schools at Anyox, was held
on Wednesday afternoon last in the
Recreation Hall.
The subject for the Public School

The winner in this contest was Roberta Henderson, the second place
being divided between J. Varnes
and D. Williams.
For the High School Students the
subject was: -'Canada, its Federal,
Provincial, and Municipal Governments." This brought 'out some
splendid efforts, the winner proving
to be Miss Helen Simpson, with
Edward Healy in second place.
The judges were Doctor Learoyd
and Rev. A. Abraham, and the chair
was occupied by Mrs. Fricker.
The Rev. E. Baker gave an inspiring address on the meaning and
significance of Poppy Day, and
Miss Mae Barclay recited: "In
Flanders Fields." Mrs. L. McKay
presided at the piano and played
some marches and other numbers.
The contest was most interesting,

Committees Formed For Alice
Arm Christmas Tree
The ladies of Alice Arm held a
meeting at the Alice Arm Hotel on
Monday evening, to make arrangements for the annual Children's
Christmas Tree and entertainment.
The following  committees    were
Finance: Mrs. E. M. Orr, Mrs. O.
Refreshments: Mrs. H. F. Kergin, Mrs. J, Trinder.
Entertainment: Mrs. J. Graham
Miss A. Kergin, Miss A. Evindsen.
It was decided to hold the Christmas Tree at the Alice Arm Hotel

evening for both youngsters and
adults is anticipated.
I wish to express my sincere
thanks to the doctors and nursing

illness. I also wish to publicly
thank the many friends who so
willingly subscribed to the fund
oolleoted on my behalf. The generosity thus shown is greatly
Anyox Pilot's Thrilling
Experience Delivering
Ballot Boxes
The story of the final delivery of
the ballot boxes at Telegraph Creek
on November 3rd. after a journey
whioh commenced on October 18th.
from Anyox reads like a romance
of the north. Delays caused by
fogs, frost, and snow storms merely
inoreased the determination of all
concerned to have the boxes delivered, and they were dropped in improvised parachutes from Jack
MaoConnachie's plane, on November 3rd., and picked up safe and
sound. With them were the ballot
papers, some mail, and a parcel of
medicine. This is thought to be
the first time that such action was
necessary in connection with the
delivery of ballot boxes.
The coldest Ootober in fifty years
is held accountable for the confusion
resulting from the lack'of balloting
facilities in the little Cassiar metropolis.
MacConnachie of Anyox, in his
Eastman flying boat, left Anyox at
2:30 p.m. Tuesday, October 31st. for
Prince Rupert, where he re-fueled
and cleared the Customs. He was
accompanied by C. B. Frusk, mechanic. He left next day, and was
almost forced down near Ketchikan
through fog, after having flown for
half an hour at less than 75 feet
altitude. He arrived at Wrangel
at 2:55 p.m. and found that Capt.
Wm. Strong, veteran Stikine and
Taku River pilot, had taken the
ballot boxes and was attempting
to get up the Stikine by boat.
They could not locate Strong and
returned to Wrangel after having
fiown up the river 45 miles.
Next morning they started again,
in a gale and located Strong after
some difficulty at Andrews' Creek.
It was impossible to land, so they
rose to a height where they could
steady the plane enough to write a
note and got the message to him
by attaching it to a wrench. Capt.
Strong had been frozen in the river
for two days and had it not been
for the "Stikine" gale whioh was
blowing he could not have got out.
The note requested him to return
to Wrangel whioh he did.
Part of the next day was spent
in making parachutes for the ballot boxes. Taking off at 12:15 on
the 3rd. the plane ran into a snow
storm near the International boundary and was compelled to descend
within three hundred feet ofthe
river to pass under the storm area.
The visibility improved as they
cruised north until they finally
emerged into bright sunshine and,

was held in the Legion Room on
Tuesday November 7th. at 2:30 p.m.
Owing to illness of the Regent,
Mrs. Lang, Mrs. C. O. Fricker,
vice-regent presided.
Assistance was voted to the
daughter of a returned solidier, for

other donations were made.

donoted by Mr. C. Harman, will be
disposed of under the convenership
of Mrs. C. Ruckhaber. .Funds
thus raised will be used for Christmas relief.
It was decided to hold a social
funotion on February 14th. Details to be decided on later.
A considerable sum has been

dropped the boxes at 2 p.m.
A messenger started out on November 6th. from Telegraph Creek,
with the Dease Lake ballot box
and documents, but at fifty miles
out he encountered a heavy snowstorm and was forced to return,
whereupon the Dease Lake poll
was abandoned. There were passengers at Telegraph Creek await
ing the arrival of the plane, but ice
conditions were unfavorable for a
landing there.
Great credit is due to the two
flyers, for tlieir perseverance in the
face of most unfavorable conditions
and their successful carrying out
of their task.
When the ballot boxes were reported missing, J. Trinder, returning officer, arranged for a Canadian
Airways plane to come to Anyox
from Vanoouver and convey him
north in quest of the missing boxes,
but fog prevented the plane from
reaohing Anyox. He would have
left here on November 2nd.
Many Artists Take Part
In United Church
A good number of people attended the Annual Concert of the United Church, which was held in the
Recreation Hall on Monday, November 6th. A most interesting
programme of vocal, musical, elo-
cution and dance numbers was
given, all of which were most enjoyable.
Songs were given by William
Murdoch, Mrs. T. Griftths, Rev. A.
Abraham, N. R. Redmond. Musical items were rendered by Mr.
Hartley, saxophone; Miss F. Allen,
piano; Mr. Herman & Mr. Zanata,
guitar and mandolin; M. Zanata,
piano accordian; J. Buntain and J.
Haywood, guitars. Recitations by
Miss A. Forde and Mr. J. Vine;
group dances in costume by the
pupils of Mr. Laurie.
Thanks are due to these accomplished artists, and also to Mr. Laurie
and the dance accompanist, Mrs.
Geo. Roots, as well as to Mr. F.
Dresser and Miss Allan accompanists for the vocalists.
Government Donates Ground
For Recreation Purposes
The Alice Arm Athletic Association have been successful in their
efforts, to obtain from the government a release from further payments on the piece of land held by
The association has received a
letter from the Deputy Provincial
Secretary stating that the land
has been donated for public use,
and that the following have been

One cash payment was made on
the government land by the Athletic Association, but as it was impossible to make other payments,
the land reverted to the government
and upon request it was donated
to the town for recreation purposes.

E. MOSS, Editor and Publisher,
New Government Has
Rough Road to Travel
The Provincial General Election
has been held. The people of
British Columbia have expressed
their wish as to what party should
govern them during the next four
or five years. Their choice was
the Liberal party, and upon them
devolves great future responsibilities. They have been elected to
set things in order at Victoria, or
in other words: "To deliver the
goods." If they fail to come up to
the expectations of the electors,
they will have a much harder fight
on their hands a few years hence
than they did last week. Holding
the reins of government these days
is not the mere borrowing and
spending of large sums of money
as in former years. Strict economy is forced upon present day
governments and at the same time
they must give the public efficient
service in all their departments.
It is going to take some real statesmanship at Victoria to carry on
and keep the big majority of voters
satisfied. If the government borrows large sums of money in order
to pay wages on relief work, it will
be condemned by the tax payers.
If it does not create public works
and pay wages to those employed
it will be condemned by the workers. If it allows the efficiency of
any of its departments to be lowered,it will be condemned by those
who are hurt. As it looks at present the government would be advised to try and live within its
income, doing the best it can, and
for every dollar expended to get a
dollar's worth in return, and await
the return of better times before
launching any large projects entailing the expenditure of considerable
sums of money.
Let Us Forget Our
Election Differencies
The result of the election in the
Atlin riding last week was that a
new member, Mr. W. J. Asselstine,
was elected to represent us in the
Legislature for the comirg four or
five years, and it is the duty of
everyone who has the interests of
this district at heart to give him
their whole-hearted support, irrespective of whether they voted for
him or not. Not a thing will be
gained by throwing obstacles in his
way, or indulging in unfair criticism. Mr. Asselstine is an experienced mining man, and whether he
is appointed Minister of Mines or
not, he can, and no doubt will, do
a lot of good for the mining industry of Atlin riding, including Alice
Premier Mine Will Continue
To Operate
Premier Gold Mining Company
is operating at full capacity and
treating 500 tons daily through the
plant, Dale L. Pitt, mine manager,
advises the Financial News in refuting as without foundation reports
that the famous Premier Mine was
about to be closed down.
"While it is true our ore reserves
are diminishing, there is no intention of closing down the Premier
until all of the ore reserves are exhausted," writes Mr. Pitt. "Certainly, from the present viewpoint,
this will not occur inside of a year."
Referring to the decision of the
company' to withdraw from the
Cariboo, Mr. Pitt states that work
there this summer did not justify
carrying on with the various options
the company had, all of which have
been given up.
With exchange swinging back to
normal, it is interesting to note the
recent tendency to make Canadian
loans repayable only in Canadian

France Produces More Wheat
Than Canada
It will come as a surprise to
many to learn that France's estimated wheat crop amounts to 338,
668,095 bushels, which is 98,668,
095 bushels more than is estimated
for the Canadian crop, states the
Agricultural Department of the
Canadian National Railways
Carry-over from last year's French
crop on August 1, amounted to
44,000,000 bushels, which, with
wheat from the French colonies
and Morroco, brings France's total
supply of wheat for the present
crop year in the vicinity of 391,-
668,000 bushels. The normal consumption of wheat by France is
estimated at 338,000,000 bushels.

receive the Minister of Mines portfolio, and we sincerely hope he will.
There was no one else elected in the
recent election that has the mining

lawyer, doctor or storekeeper
should fill that important position
when an efficient and capable man
is available.

Historic Wolfe's Cove Assumes New Aspect
The scene of the landing ot
General Wolfe, under the towering crags crowned by the Plains of
Abraham and the City of Quebec,
is about to become the setting for
yet another important event in the
history of Canada. On September
18, 1759, the British forces disembarked at what is now known as
Wolfe's Cove, to capture Quebec
On June 2, 1931, passengers from
the new 42,500-ton Canadian Pacific
liner "Empress of Britain", on her
maiden voyage from Southampton,
will land within a few yards
of the same
spot and be
taken by train,
through a tun-
nel slightly
over a mile
long, under the
historic battlefield on which
the English
hero lost his
life, direct to
the Canadian
Pacific's main line to Montreal.
This new traffic link, which is being
completed by the company at a cost
of some $2,000,000, will eliminate
the present journey through Quebec's   terminals   and   materially
General Wolfe
shorten the running time from the
ship's side to all important Canadian and American centres. A
concrete quay-wall, 4,300 feet in
length, with 40 feet of water at low
tide, will provide berthing space for
the new giantess and ner sister
"White Empresses'', and five railway tracks, converging into one
at the end of the wharf and thence
turning into the new tunnel, will
serve to transfer passengers from
the bosom of the St. Lawrence to
their respective destination*. Disembarkation will be effected through
a two-storey shed, with stairways
leading down to the trains. The

Close Basketball Games
Arouse Enthusiasm
The spectators who attended the
basketball games in the Gymnasium
on Friday the 3rd. were treated to
some fast and exciting play. Both
games were close, and the scores
were piled up steadily on both sides
Good play was seen in the B game,
which was by no means a fill-in.
In a short time these teams will
compare well with their senior confreres, so that every game each
evening will be equally attractive.
In the game between the Warriors and the Pirates the former had
the advantage in the first half, but
the Pirates, armed to the teeth,
came back strong in the second
stanza and almost succeeded in tying the score. They showed speed
and cleverness, and also checked
effectively. Greater experience in
the Warrior quintette was their
greatest help. Scott and Dodsworth played well for sea robbers,
while Arney and McDonald starred
forthe fighters, who won 22-19.
The teams: Pirates: D. McDonald,
T. Scott 7; K. Falconer 9, J. Dodsworth 2, B. Parsons 1. Warriors:
A. Deeth, A. Domenato 3, D. McDonald 4, D. O'Neill, Arney 9,
Hill 6.
In the A League game the Bonanza-Concentrator squad tried conclusions with the Trojans, and lost
by two points, the score being
26-24. The downfall of the bucket
and mill combine was due, solely to
their inability to shoot. Time and
time again, they were in a favorable
position to connect with the basket.
Their speed and nice passing was
thus lost. The Trojans made the
most ot every chance to score, and
were effective in their shooting.
Bud Gillies, for the winners, notched fourteen points. Morrison was
the star scorer for the Bon. Cons,
with nine points.
The teams: Bon. Cons., Wing-
ham 6, S. Steele 6, D. Morrison 7,
Vance 2, J. Currie 1, H. Jack 2.
Trojans: B. Gillies 14, W. Shields

For Norway
Mr. Lars Anderson, who has been
ill for some time, left on Wednesday last for his home in Norway,
where he will seek special medical
treatment for a malignant trouble
with which he is afflicted. To enable him to secure this attention a
public subscription was taken up in
the district, which was responded
to most generously. Mr. Anderson

measure of safety, some of the
houses in the vicinity of the mine
were vacated for the time being.
About thirty tons of powder were
used in this operation.
