The Secretary reported that the
Intermediate /Baseball   Team has
returned from Bupert and reported
splendid entertainment while there
and had  reoeived the   guarantee

$25.00.    The matter of  washing
the streets was taken up with the
department looking after this work
and it was promised that this would
be attended to as soon as the necessary help was available.' A report
ofthe first of. July activities would
not be ready before the next meet-
; ing.   A request for the use of the
ball grounds for the evening  of
July 6th. had come from the Elks,
j and permission to use tho grounds
i had been given.   The bridge across
j the creek at the flats had been put
i in excellent shape for foot traffic.
| A vote of thanks to all who helped
|niakethe Dominion Day celebration a success would be in order.
Mr. Simpson moved and Mrs.
| Cloke seconded a motion to   the
I effect that the action of the Secre-
I tary in granting the use of the bajl
I grounds for  the ladies   baseball
i game on Wednesday July 6th. be
I endorsed by the Council.
|(    Mr. Simpson reported on   the
| dance  in the gymnasium, which
> had   been   'successful,   although
j according to the law it had been
: necessary to close down  at mid-
! night,   He also called  the  atten-
1 tion of the Council to the fact that
) the fan had been installed, and to
[show that it was satisfactory, the
Manager of the Reoreation   Hall
• staged a demonstration.
Correspondence embraced a reply
to a letter of inquiry sent to the
foremost sohool in Canada dealing
with kindergartens and their methods.   As this sohool had closed ■. for
the season before the  letter had
been received, it contained a recommendation to the League to address
the Ontario Board of Education
at Toronto.   Mrs. Cloke suggested
that a letter be sent there, so that
all possible information be obtained.
Another letter  was from  a  Mr.
Henderson, who stated that he had
, heard that Anyox was in need of
; an orohestra, and that he would
like to come and supply a three
| piece orohestra.   A communication
1 from the Mine Club was tabled,
:-A letter from the Editor of the
I Community Page of the Vancouver
! Province was read.    This was a
letter thanking the Seoretary of
: the League for an artiole covering
, the activities of the League, and
; requested further contributions in
the future.
The Chairman thought it  was
time to take up the matter of de-
| oiding whether it was opportune to
Development Work
on Black Diamond
Development work is proceeding
on the Black Diamond property at
Copper Creek, in the Illiance River
Valley. Messrs G.W. Morley and
Ralph Ingraham who are driving a
cross-cut tunnel ou the property
are now in 18 feet, and they expeot
to encounter the ore vein within
another 8 or 10 feet.
Al Clary is also engaged in driving another tunnel at a lower elevation. The tunnel has been driven a distance of 32 feet and with
another 6 or 7 feet of tunnel the ore
body is expected to be encountered.
Mr. Morley, who was in town
during the week is well pleased
with the outlook "of the property,1
and expects to prove up considerably ore bodies before the summer
is over."
The Black Diamond is ideally
located for shipping ore, having an
elevation of only 600 feet, and is
situated only six miles from tide
Flag Pole Raised at
Alice Arm School
The Wg.flag pole that has Jbeen
lying jn front of the school for the
past few weeks was raised into po>
sition on Thursday, Numerous
willing workers were on hand to
help in the raising and the big pole
was placed into position without a
hitch, and amid great excitement
of the onlookers the good old Union
Jaok, thepride of all good Canadians was run to the top and floated
gaily in' the breeze.
The pole is 76 feet in length six
feet' of which is in the ground
TwO cubic feet of concrete was
used to fill the hole and ensure a
solid foundation.
The school trustees Wish to thank
Mr. F. Miller for getting the pole
from the woods, and also all those
who gave their time and labor at
the grand raising, Great credit is
especially due to Messrs. J. Ander
son and J. M. Morrrison, for preparing the pole and' doing all the
preliminary work before the actual
raising, The pole as it now stands
has not oost the School Board one
oent. Perhaps, now that one flag
is flying in town it might encourage
others to display the national emblem a little more frequent On
public holidays.
Horseshoe Properly
Being Developed
Messrs. Win. Bunting and E.
Ndss arrived <iWn , from the
Horseshoe group on Sunday. Mr.
Bunting, who holqMan half interest in the property is enthusiastic
over the future ou^|ook, and stated
that it is the intention to do development work on it this summer.
The work at present will consist
of surface' stripping of the ore
veins, and later, a tunnel will be
driven in order to determine the
width of the ore vein at depth.
From the work alrijady done it has
been proven that tjje vein widens
considerably with djepth, and it is
the'intention of the, owners to get
further depth.
The vein can easily be traced on
the surface for over 600 feet. The
ore is composed of grey popper and
samples taken have assayed from
7J per cent, to 28 per oent oopper.
Messrs. E. Ness and J. Nick are
now engaged in surface stripping
on the property.

conditional on the business
ofthe League increasing sufficient
to warrant it. The members of
the Counoil present deoided to leave
the matter with the Finance Committee. Mr. Jones brought up the
matter of librarian's vacation. Mrs.
Deane asked him about it, and

ALICE   ARM   AND , ANYOX   HERALD,   Alice  Arm,   Saturday, July., 7,, 1923
Dominion Day
Sports at Anyox
Dominion day, the day which
the people of Anyox always celebrate to the limit has again passed
and the people of Anyox can look
back with satisfaction and pride on
the achievements of that day in
carrying out such a large and varied programme, to the satisfaction
of everyone. The Anyox Community League, under whose auspices the sports were held, and who
were responsible for the success of
the various entertainments are to
be congratulated on the efficient
manner in which the' entire programme was handled, special praise
being due to the secretary, Mr. F.
M. Kelley and the various committees in charge. The members of
the committees gave of their time
and labor, freely and willingly, and
it is such public spiritedness and
unselfishness as this that infuses life
into such an entertainment, and
gives everyone, both young and old
what is termed "a good time."
Canada's Prosperity
Through us or in
spite of us?
We wish to call attention to the
advertisment placed in this issue
by the Federal Department of Agriculture. It is more than an advertisement it is a call to united and
cheerful effort, a summons to the
Canadian spirit of the "will to win"
which has burned so* brightly
throughout Canada's history.
When the war was on and this
country was putting forth every
effort, at home and overseas, to aid
the allied cause, a great spirit of
confidence and faith, of willingness
to work, economize and sacrifice,
filled every class of the community
from the highest to the lowest.
As a result, Canada's honorable
war record has set her high among
the nations, with a place at the Imperial Council table and a voice in
international affairs.
Canada must and will come,
with equal honour, through the
troublesome times of post-war
adjustment. The only question is,
will all of us help—or some of us
hinder, by pesimism, apathy, or
class jealousy)
•To the Canadian farmer this
question comes with a pecular force
Agriculture must be the economic
balance wheel of this or any nation.
It is an occupation where nature
herself demands energy, courage,
economy, and efficiency. These
sturdy qualities radiate from our
farms to industries in other walks
of life, where so many leaders were
born and bred.
The farm home and farm life as
the source of what has been and is
the truest in our national character
if interwoven with the history of
Canada from its infancy. The
settlers on the shores of New BrunS'
wick and Nova Scotia; toiling to
clear a patch of forest and sowing
their grain among the stumps.
Herbert and the pioneers of New
France, fighting Indians, enduring
privations, wresting <merely a rud
living from their small clearings,
but full of faith in the future, if not
for them, then for generations yet
to come; the men who rescued
Upper Canada from the wilderness;
the Red River colonists, who, after
two years of complete destruction
of their crops, sent a party to the
Mississippi for seed grain for the
next year and won! These men
made possible the Canada of today.
There-is lots of room in Canada
for the 100 per cent. Canadian, but
the whiner is taboo.   What are you?

International Tennis
Game at Anyox
A very interesting game of tennis
was played last Sunday between the
four tennis stars of Anyox. It was an
international game, two players representing the United States and two
Great Britain. The game was for the
best of five sets. Messrs. Cole and Lee
representing the United States and
Messrs. H. J. Ballion and F. Townshend carrying the honors of Great
The game was very evenly contested
America winning the 1st. set, Britain
the 2nd, and 3rd. and America the 4th,
making two all. There was great
enthusiasm over the final set, which,
after being ut 5 all eventually was captured after brilliant play by the
British, the final result being Great
Britain Si, America 2.
There waH very little to choose
between the teams, the play of all four
being excellent. Fine tennis was
shown and all tennis lovers are looking
forward to a repetition of this clasB of
game which is extremely interesting
to the spectators. Great credit is due
to the energetic secretary, Mr. Noel
Ballion for the manner in which the
tournament was arranged.
Tennis Tournament, July 1st
A tennis tournament, which was a
part of the Dominion Day sports programme, was held on Sunday, July
1st. at the local courts, under perfect

Travailing is becoming more and
more of a fine art. Formerly it was
regarded simply as a process of getting
from one place to another—most tire-
somebut unavoidable. Now it is looked
upon as a joyful undertaking, a
delightful interlude in the regular
routime of life, especially when the
journey is over the lines of the Canadian National Railways. The keynote
of the Canadian National Railway is
Service That service aims to make
the passenger as comfortable as possible and to save him every bit of
unnecessary effort. Thinking is a
mental effort. Patrons of the Dining
Car Servioe will now find themselves
saved that trouble, by a casual glance
at the little dodger that is distributed
throughout the coaches on all trains
to which Dining Cars are attached!
Upon the dodger, which is printed in
both English and French, are several
suggestions for a suitable combination
of dishes for the coming meal. Prices
for a complete menu for Breakfast,
Dinner, and Supper range from 35
cents to $1125. The traveler iherely
needs to decide what he Wishes'to pay
and upon entering the Dining ()ar he
will find himself served as quickly and
satisfactorily as he would in a well-
appointed home. '

Canada Confident
CANADA is endeavoring to regain her
after-the-war stride
in the midst of many
difficulties, — debt,
deflation aiid depression being'
some of them.
Quack remedies and academic
theories beset her path on every
side, Some suggest that our debt
worries can best be eased by going further into debt. Others
preach blue ruin, decry their own
country and indulge in mischievous propaganda generally,
while still others look for a new
social order or some miraculous
sign to indicate a better coming
day—all this in apparent forget-
fulness of the fact that just as
there was no royal road to win
the war, there is now no royal
road to pay for it or regain our
former buoyancy, vigor and
Some are leaving Canada hoping to escape taxation, only to
find there is no escape anywhere.
In seeking for easy remedies too
many of us overlook the fact
that the greatest remedy is honest, hard work faithfully and
intelligently performed, accompanied by old-fashioned thrift.
It takes time, it takes patience,
it takes grit. But every Canadian
knows in his heart that Canada
is coming through all right.
Our Experience Proves It
Look back over the path Canada
has trod. The French Colonists,
cut off from civilization by 3,000
miles of Sea, faced a continent—
a wilderness—without the aid of
even a blazed trail. They had
to fight savages, frosts, scurvy,
loneliness and starvation.
The United Empire Loyalists
subdued an unbroken forest in
one generation, growing their
first wheat amid the stumps aiid
snags of the new clearing.
The Selkirk settlers came to
Manitoba when the prairie was a
buffalo pasture, and grew wheat
where hone had grown before
and where those who knew the
country best at that time said
wheat would never grow. Today the Canadian prairies grow
the finest wheat in the world.
In proportion to population Canada
stands to-day among the wealthiest
nations in the world, with average
savings on deposit per family of
$800. Canada's foreign trade per head
of population stands amongst the
highest .of the commercial nations,
being $192 per capita in 1922-23, as
compared with $135 in 1913-14, the
"peak" year before the war.
New Opportunities for
In Canada, although prices in the
world markets fell below war level,
our farmers reaped last autumn the
largest grain crop in Canadian history, and.Canada became the world's
largest exporter of wheat, thus in
•large measure making up for lower
Last, year, Great Britain, after an
agitation extending over thirty years, .
removed the embargo on Canadian
cattle, and a profitable and practically
unlimited trade is opening, up for
Canadian stockers and feeders.
