Public Meeting Held
at Alice Arm
For„ the Purpose of Discussing Connections
With the Naas Valley
A public mooting was hold in the
old School House, at Alice Arm, on
Saturday, October 1st. The meeting was called for the general
discussion of the feasibility of building a road or trail between Alice
Arm and the , Naas Valley.
Whether it would be advisable to
petition the government* for a
wagon road next summer, or start
with a trail and gradually widen it
into a wagon road. Mr. C. P.
Riel was elected chairman of the
meeting and gave a brief dutline of
why the meeting was called.
A great deal of local interest has
been taken in a road or trail to the
Naas Valley, since it was first
proposed, and evidence of this was
shown on Saturday evening, when
tho school was filled to capacity.
The various opinions of those
present were fully aired, some were
in favor of only petitioning the
government for a trail next summer as they thought the government would not be in sympathy
, with the idea of building a road
until more settlers moved into the
valley and proved that the country
warranted a wagon road.
Others, were in favor of starting
with a wagon road and doing as
much work as the money appropriated would allow, and not
bother with a trail at all. As it
was their contention that if a trail
was built the same ground would
have to be gone oyer again in order
to make it wide enough for a
wagon or sleigh.
The route the proposed road
would take also came in for considerable discussion. Mr. Miles
Donald favored starting from
Silver City, following Lime Creek
as much as possible and after going
over tho divide to follow the Quin-
itah for a distance towards the
Naas River. Mr. Miles Donald
has thoroughly surveyed this route
and stated that the distance would
be between 15 and 18 miles.
Mr. Geo. Young, road superintendent, favored the Illiance River
route, as he stated 11 miles of good
trail was already built and that he
could have a trail built in two
months that would enable horses
to go right through to the Naas.
The trail would touch Bowman
Lakes and after passing over the
divide would follow the Tchitin
River to the Naas Valley. He said
the Lime Creek route could not be
completed in one season, and that
the Illiance River*route would open
up a good mineral country as well
as making connections with a rich
agricultural country. He also
stated that'the government employed a locating engineer whose
work consists of surveying proposed routes of roads and trails and
that in this case as in all others it
would be for him to decide,
After considerable more discussion in which everyone who had an
opinion and was'nt afraid to express
it took part, it was proposed by
Mr. J. Morrison and seconded by
Mr. M. Peterson, that the petition
drawn up should stand as it was;
that is, for a trail into the Naas
Valley, to be widened later into a
wagon road. The motion was
carried.
A large map of the district showing the two routes was drawn on
the blackboard,by Mr. F. Rice and
was a great help to those who
were not familjar with the. Naas
Valley district.

Ex-Service Men
of Anyox Hold
a Meeting
Permanent Organization
to he Established
Oh Wednesday night last, a
meeting was held in the Elk's
Hall, by the ex-service men of
Anyox, The Rev. J. Herdman
presided in the chair. Considering
that the meeting was not as extensively advertised as it might have
been the attendance was all that
could be wished for; the number
present being over thirty.
The first subject to come up for
discussion was the observance of
Armistice Day, November 11th.
While the Monday of the week in
which the 11th. of November
occurs has been legalized by the
Dominion government for the observance of Armistice Day, the'
feeling of the meeting was that tlje
actual anniversary should be kept
in some manner, so the decision
was arrived at to give a re-union
dinner for the returned sailors and
soldiers of the camp; to be followed
by a dance in the evening, on
November 11th, instead of on the
7th, the date on which the official
Armistice Day will fall this year.
The management will be approached to ascertain the feasibility of
having a two minutes silence from
eleven o'clock throughout the plant
on the actual anniversary. Also,
it is hoped arrangements may be
made with the school boa'rd whereby a portion of the olass nours of
November 11th may be set aside
for talks by the teachers, to keep
green in the memory of the children
the significance of Armjstice Day.
Mr. Herdman advised the meeting that a movement was on foot
to have the different churches of
Anyox unite in holding a Divine
Service on Armistice Day. When
we recall, that in France it was by
no means unusual to see a Salvation Army Service held in a Church
of Englaud hut, or a Catholic Service in a Y. M. C. A. tent, we feel
sure that no insurmountable difficulty will be encountered in
concluding arrangements for this
service. The question is whether
there is a hall in Anyox large
enough to hold the crowd that will
turn out.
The subject of forming an organization of the' ex-service men of the
camp was also discussed at length
and a motion was carried to
proceed with the organizing. The
election of officers was deferred
until the next meeting, Wednesday
October ,12th, as it is expected
there will be a larger attendance.
No action waStaken towards the
adoption of a constitution, but it
may be here stated that the associ-
Election of Officers for the
Anyox Community League
Twelve New Councillors Elected
The election of councillors for the

! There were ten 'candidates for
the four seats on the General
Council for the beach. J. W.
Esplin headed the poll with 127
against P. Barr the next in line
who polled 103. Alex Roberts just

the second highest number of votes
with 124j against F. Turner's 45,
for one seat representing forum.
J. Sherman had a walk-over for

Home and school was a close
race, which Capt. Reader (Miss)
won with 99 against Mrs. Bromley's
74.

mine there were seven candidates
for two seats, and the vote was
more evenly distributed. Mr. E.
Wall with 67 and Mr. D. F.. Hatt
with 55 Winning. Mrs. McKay
lost out with just two less than
Mr. Hatt.
The ladies who showed the real
community spirit by offering their

ation will be purely of a local
character, unaffiliated with existing
servicemen's associations, and non-
political. As there are in the
neighbourhood of two hundred
returned men in camp there is no
reason whythis organization should

point of view. There are many in

The Coming Election.
The big guns of the political
parties have already begun to boom
and roar in eastern Canada and
the prairie provinces and the electors are beginning to sit up and take
notice.    All three parties in the
field   predict    choas    and    ruin
throughout the country if they are
not elected.   If the ruin and depression is going to be worse than it
is at present there would be cause
for alarm, but all  signs point at
present in the opposite direction
and whatever party is elected, if
money is more free than it is now
we shall have good times.   The
present government has started out
with a loud voice proclaiming what
they intend to do if again elected.
They stand for protection.     Not
the protection of the great mass of
people, oh no.   Their policy is the
same as it has been in the past, the
protection   of   the   big  industrial
millionaires in the east, and the
common people they use as pawns
to gain their ends.   In other words
they propose to erect a high tariff
wall   between   Canada   and the
United States that will absolutely
shut out all American made goods
and  we will then have to pay
whatever price the manufacturers
in the east see fit to charge, and
from past experience in that line
everyone can rest assured that they
will be squeezed to the limit.   The
Meighen government has started
the campaign by playing a dirty
trick on the west, in not postponing
the election until the Redistribution
Bill could take effect, so that the
west could have a fair representation.     They   were   elected   in
1917 to hold office until the finish
of the war, as the people did not
want a change of government at
such a critical period, and they
should have resigned and gone to
the  country  when the armistice
was signed,   instead of resigning
they have hung on knowing that at
the next election they would be
defeated.   They have broken all
records as spendthrifts of the public
money, and as regards wringing
taxes from the people they are in a
class by themselves.     They are
decaying of dry rot through having
held office too long.   The time is
ripe for a change and there is'nt
the slightest doubt but that the next
Federal government will be liberal
Crime in Canada during tho year
1920 increased 25 per cent over
1919 according to figures compiled
by the Dominion bureau of statistics, There were twenty convictions for murder, and 2073
convictions for burgulary. Cases
of  drunkeness   numbered   39,709.
In eighty-eight towns and cities
there were 3682 automobiles stolen,
valued at $4,562,043. Of these
the police recovered all but 1.48.
Engineer Mine Suit
Is Being Tried in
Vancouver Courts
Trial of the famous dispute concerning the Engineer mine, one of the
most valuable gold properties in the
Atlin country, commenced in Vancouver last week. Witnesses are on hand
from Atlin and Alaska, and also from
Philadelphia and New York.
The plaintiff's case was opened by
Mr. S. S. Taylor, K. O., senior council.
According to him, Captain James
Alexander, whose successors and heirs
are the defendants, was guilty of
claim jumping. Alexander, said council, was a man of no means, a rolling
stone and roustabout, and from knowledge acquired in 1905 when he was
employed as chainman on the party
which surveyed the claims, awaited
the opportunity to step in.and acquire
them for himself. This occurred in
1907, when the title of the Engineer
Mining'Oo: lapsed. The lapse said Mr.
Taylor, was not the fault of the company, but the gold commissioner and
the then deputy attorney-general were
to blame for not issuing crown grants
to his clients, who had repeatedly applied for them.
Alexander was watching this latter
dispute closely, and when, from an
examination of the records in the
mining recorder's office at Atlin, it
was clear the mine was open to relocation, he and a friend that same
night set out for the site of the mine
on Taku Arm, Lake Tagish, fifteen
miles distant. They travelled over
the snow, hurrying, because they
suspected others had a siihilar plan
in mind, biit morning found them
alone on the ground surmounting the
Engineer mine. The place had been
deserted for some time although the
stamp mill, buildings and machinery
were still there'. Alexander and his
friend staked the most valuable claims
and returning to Atlin, filed evidence
of this in the office of the mining
■ecorder.
Captain Alexander soon after arranged with Mr. W. Pollard Grant,
Vancouver lawyer, to fight all contestants who might question his title on
the understanding that Grant would
have a fifth interest in the mine
Later he was squeezed out by his
associate.
Funds for operating the mine were
secured from Allen I. Smith of Philadelphia, The money was' loaned and
to protect Smith, Alexander made a
will leaving everything to him in the
event of his death occurring before
the loan had been paid. Alexander
and his wife perished on the Princess
Sophia and not long afterward,
Smith committed suicide. Smith's
heirs are contesting the present action.
In Queensland, Australia, the
state operates ranches, butcher
shopsfsaw mills, coal mines, iron
and steel works, canneries, hotels,
fisheries, produce markets, insurance, sugar mills and restaurants,
and out of these various enterprises
up to January 1, 1920, had accumulated profits of f 1,400,000. Tho
price of meat at these State owned
butcher shops is half that in other
states where the butcher $hops are
privately owned.

Engagement Rings
"The Engagement Ring represents one of the biggest
moments in a woman's life. Whether the stone be
small or large, she likes to feel that it is perfect in color
and cutting, and without flaws."
No statement is truer than this, and the certain way to
ensure diamond perfection is to purchase a "Birks."

Two Million Dollars
For Road Work in
British Columbia
j
for the double purpose of building
[lew roads and relieving unemployment in this province. Finance Minister Hon. John Hart lias called for
senders for the purchase of two
nillion dollars worth of twenty-five
year six per cent. British Cohhnbia
londs, payable only in Canada.
The proceeds of the issue will be
ised for highway construction and
ither general administration.
Canadian Coal Output
Less Than Last Year
The output of coal from Canadian
lliiines during the first six months of
this year declined to 8(1 pur cent of the
'amount produced in the similar
months of last year.
The total output for Canada during
the six months was (1,788,000 tons,
with a total value of $32,882,053, or
an average per ton of $5.75, British
Columbia's output was 1,885,323 tons
jof bituminous, with an average value
of $8.70 per ton.
Canada's total importations of hard
and soft coal for the six months of
this year amounted to 8,310,24(1 tons,
against 6,768,700 tons in 1020.
It is expected that the population
of Canada will be about .eight and
la half millions. In 1911 the pop-
| ulation was about 7,200,000 and
if it were 8,500,000 now, that
would be a gain of 18 per cent.
