Meeting   of   Alice
Arm Liberals
A meeting of the Alice Arm
Liberal Association was held at
the new store building of Mr, S.
Dumas, on Saturday evening,
when over 60 persons were present
the hall being filled to capacity.
The meeting was called for the
purpose of electing officers for the
ensuing year, and also to elect
delegates for the Liberal convention to be held in Anyox; on the
following Wednesday.
The meeting was presided over
by Mr. C. P. Riel. The first
business brought up, was the
election of officers, and the following were elected*.
Hon. President, H. P. Kergin, M.
L. A.*, President, C. P. Riel;
Vice-President, G. W. Bruggy;
Secretary, S. Dumas; Treasurer,
H. Fowler; Executives, J. Fiva,
O. Flint, AL "Falconer.
Delegates to utteud the Anyox
convention were then elected, and
Messrs. H. Fowler. C. P. Riel, S.
Dumas, Al. Falconer, and J. Fiva
were elected.
Speeches were then given by
several of those present. Mr. H.
B. Chapman, former president of
the Anyox Liberal Association
being the first speaker.
Mr. H. F. Kergin then gave an
address. He confined his remarks
chiefly to the work of members of
the government when parliament
is in session, and proved conclusively that a member spent an
arduous time in Victoria, despite
the general opinion to the contrary.
Messrs. H. Fowler, and C. P.
Riel also gave addresses espousing
the Liberal platform.
Logging Operations are
Progressing
Logging operations by ■ the
Granby Co. at Alice Arm are
progressing satisfactory. Number
2 oamp is hauling about 50,000
feet per day over the Dolly Varden
railway. One log brought down
laBt week contained 7000 feet of
lumber. It was thirty* two feet in
length, and measured nine feet in
diameter at the butt.
The Company's mill at Larcom
Island commenced sawing lumber
with a full crew this morning.
As soon as sawn lumber is available from the mill, the railway
trestle at Camp 2 will be completed
and the hauling of logs to tide
water will commence.
S. Dumas Takes Logging
Contract
Mr. S. Dumas has taken a
contraot from the Granby Co. to
log off all the timber between the
west bank of the Kitsault river
and the town of Alice Arm. The
total amount of timber comprises
about 100,000 feet b. m. Work is
now well under way.
As soon as this piece of ground
has been logged, Mr. Dumas will
move to the east bank of the
river, higher up the stream, where
he has contracted to log about
1,000,000, feet.
Monthly Meeting of
Anyox Parent-Teacher
The regular monthly meeting of
the Anyox Parent-Teacher Association was held on Monday, May
12. in the new sohool. In the
absence of the President, Mrs.
Dwyer, the chair was occupied by
Principal Manzer. The meeting
opened with the singing of "'0
Canada," and the reading of the
minutes of the last meeting.
After the reports of the different
officers and regular routine business, Mr. McKnight, who represented the Association at the
Convention of the Provincial P. T.
Federation r in Vancouver at
Easter, presented in detail a very
interesting report. Some of the
chief topics of discussion there,
were, "Mal-nutrition of children,
the desirability of a Home Economics course in U. B. C, the dress
and chaperonage of 'teen-age girls,
and Bible reading in the schools.
As delegate from the most Northern Association, Mr. McKnight
was made fifth Vice-President of
the Provincial Federation, quite
an honour for Anyox. After the
presentation of his report, the
Speaker of the evening received a
vote of thanks for having agreed
at such short notice, to devote
part of a brief holiday in so unusual a manner, and for carrying
out his   task so   conscientiously.
Refreshments and music brought
the evening to a close, Mrs. Bag-
will and Miss Leitch providing a
musical treat with duets rendered
in faultless style.
The next meeting will probably
take the form of a concert and
social in honour of the departing
teachers, in accordance with the
custom of previous years.
Kitsault River Bridge Is
Completed
Work on. the Kitsault river
bridge will be brought to a conclusion this evening, and a much
discussed project will be a reality.
A bridge across the Kitsault has
been badly needed for a number of
years, and when it was evident
that logging operations were to be
oonducted across the stream, a
bridge was a necessity.
The length of the bridge span is
230 feet, and the total length of
the bridge, including approaches,
is 648 feet.
A general view of the bridge
from upstream shows a graceful
and substantial structure. Tbe
roadway of the bridge curves up
and the cables carrying the
structure have a downward curve.
The construction of the bridge
has been done under the supervision of Mr. Paul MoMaster, who
has built hundreds of bridges
throughout the province, and great
oredit is due to him for the excel!
ent results obtained.

different parts pf the riding were
present.
The only name to come before
the convention for nomination was

Smoking Conceit by
Anyox Moose
The monthly smoking concert
which was given by the members
of the Loyal Order of Moose on
Friday May 9, was a repetition of
the previous successful smokers
with possibly a more elaborate
programme.
With Brother Cross acting as
chairman the evening commenced
with an address by the Dictator,
Brother J. Ellis followed by a
selection given by the Moose
orchestra who also rendered
several noteworthy selections
thVoughout the evening, the
members of which are as follows:
Bros. Dresser, piano; Varnes,
trombone; Stivenard, comet;
Ward, clarinet; McMillan, violin;
Cameron, drums.

rendered was;

Highland Fling Bro. Molunes
accompanied by Bro. McLennan
(Bagpipes)
Boxing, McDonald, Beach, vs
Swanson, Mine.

Violin selection Bro. White.

Farnell, Mine.
Song   by Bro. J. Hegarty.
Recitation   by Bro. F. Rice.
Despite the fact that the programme was a lengthy one and
the chair advised that no encores
could be permitted, the persistent
applause on several occasions
caused the chairman to refute the
previous decision and allow the
encores.
A vote of thanks was given to
all Brothers and friends who had
contributed  to make the evening
an   enjoyable   one, also to   Bro.

Forest Fires   Can
Be Prevented
Eighty-six Per Cent.   Should
Never Start
Theodore Roosevelt is credited
with the remark that "Ninety per
cent of wisdom consists of being
wist* in time."
In the past we Canadians, with
the exception of a few whom tlie
majority thought rather crazy
than otherwise, have sat apathetically by and witnessed the
destruction annually by forest fires,
of our second largest natural asset,
our timber. The repeated
hammering in of their ideas by the
small minority, has, however, at
length roused the people at large,
to a realization of the enormity of
our loss by lire, Consequently,
the past week has by Royal
Proclamation been declared "Save
the Forest" week. Throughout
tlit* length and breadth of Canada
forest protection is being preached
in the pulpit and in the press and
forms the subject of addresses by,
officers of all our forest protection
organization.
Will we be wise in time? There
is yet time to save the great herit-
ageof our timber for our children,
but, we are rapidly approaching a
point when this will be no longer
possible unless some method is
devised of checking the annual
destruction.
When we know that only fourteen per cent of our fires arc caused
by lightning and therefore non-
preventable, this does not seem
impossible to achieve as eighty-six
per cent are caused by man who
has the remedy in his own hands.
Wherein does this remedy lie?
Not with the state, not with the
legislature, not with the municipality, but with the individual.
You and I, Bill Smith and Jack
Jones, are the persons who can
stop the fires. Who but a lunatic,
seeing a fire start in one of our
cities would not rush to the nearest fire alarm or himself attempt
to extinguish it? Yet daily
throughout the summer otherwise
good sane citizens will consistently
leave their camp fires burning,
throw away cigar or cigarette in
the woods, or start a running fire
in a slashing which they know
they are powerless to check once it
has gained a certain head. Are
these fires dissimilar from those in
our cities and are they fraught
with no danger? In 1916 in
Northern Ontario one forest fire
cost the lives of 223 people and
800,000 acres were swept bare in
three days.
It  is the duty of every citizen,
first to exercise the  utmost care
with   fire   himself,   secondly, on
discovering a lire to extinguish it
if possible, but a;t last, to report it
to    the   nearest    forest    officer.
Quick action on any fire is the one
sure  method of extinguishing it.
In addition  to, the  paid staff of
the  Forest    Service,   we  have in
British  Columbia  a large  body of
volunteer   firewardens,     patriotic
citizens    who  are    preaching the
gospel of forest protection  without
remuneration  and have banded together to help to stay the destructive work of the "rod enemy."   By
their   assistance     we are   yearly
getting quicker action on our fires.
Are  you  less  patriotic than they?
In  Norway  and   Sweden  there
are   practically    no  forest   fires.
There, when  a fire (Joes occur, the
man power is  conscripted   to fight
it.    We as a people always held
conscription   in  scorn,   until   an
exceptional state of circumstances
forced it upon us during the Great
War.   We still dislike the idea as
being repugnant to  our   ancient
traditions.    The     alternative    is
voluntary    service, "not   as   fire
fighters on the line,  with mattock
and shovel,  but as fire-preventers
handling it with   care ourselves,
inculcating the same  principal in
others  and   loyally  supporting all
organized efforts to combat a.very
real and a very treacherous foe.

that nothing was left undone to

one. They are as follows; Bro. J.

QUALITY vs. QUANTITY
There appeared recently in
print the story of two youngsters who had just opened up
lemonade stands in the same
block.
An elderly gentleman passing
the first stand noticed the drink
advertised at two cents a glass.
The boy down the street was
selling his drink at five cents.
After drinking two glasses of
the lemonade from the bowl at
the first stand the elderly gentleman approached the lad in
charge of the second little business and addressed him after
this manner:
"Young man, how can you expect to sell your lemonade at
five cents when you have a competitor offering the finest lemonade I ever drank at 2 cents?"
"Well, mister," said the boy,
we're in partnership. The cat
fell in his bowl about an hour
ago, and we decided we'd get
rid of his lemonade quick, before the news spread too far."
There is always a reason for
low price. Quantity and quality
seldom are companions in the
same package. Few people can
remember when they ever got
something for nothing.
And still some people will buy
oranges from a peddler at ten
cents a dozen and expect to get
80-cent grade.
Would you expect eggs at ten
cents a dozen to be fit for anything else but serenades?—Sun-
kist Courier.
