No Need To Go South This
There hits been no need for
residents of Anyox and Alice Arm
to pack their suit eases and fly
south this winter in order to escape the ice and snow of these
northern climes. This district is
experiencing one of the mildest
winters on record and yesterday,
the bright sunshine and warm air
was more in keeping with late
April than January. Early plant
life is responding to the warm
weather and the rhubarb plants in
S. Moore's garden at Alioe Arm
have attained a growth of three
inohes. Flowers are also in bloom
in some Alice Arm gardens.
Sport Pictures Viewed
By Large Audience
On Wednesday
The Sports' Picture Show held
on Wednesday evening, and arranged by the Anyox Community
League was a great success, and
the Recreation Hall was packed for
the occasion.
The Chairman, Mr. R. J. A.
Manning, President of the Community League, opened the programme with a brief address in
which he ably expressed the object
of the evening's entertainment.
The Anyox Amateur Orchestra
rendered several selection's, and received much applause from an
appreciative audience.
The sport films, depicting the
latest sports, including gliding,
a rodeo in Cody, Wyoming and a
trip to the top of Pike's Peak were
all greatly enjoyed.
Before the big fight films were
shown, a rather novel bathing
beauty contest was staged through
the enterprise of Mr. Norton
Youngs. It was a great -success,
and the entries of young battling
beauties, representing the larger
cities of Canada, gave the judges a
task in selecting Miss Canada andJ
Miss British Columbia.
Miss Victoria (Jean) ParsonsjiWas
given the Dominion title, while JHiss
Calgary (Miss Wynne) was aiwjprd
ed the Provincial laurels.
Master   Tierney,   masquen
as "Miss Halifax,"   was  dre§sed
from head to foot in black, ancfthis
small lad greatly amused the
audience by his antics in his a
ance on the stage. 3!
{ The picture of the world's h^vy
weight championship bout between
Max Schmeling and Jack ShaSey
and the film of the Al SingerJfand
McLarnin fight was very goocLi'nnd
in the latter fight it was a treat' for
Anyox folks to see the Vancouver
idol in action.
Anyox Miniature Golf League
Formed ■
A miniature golf league hasieei
formed and  the first games*will
take place during February. jeThe
teams comprising four players'each
are as follows: MoColl's, Boiler
Shop, MaoConnachie's, Store, Cavalier's, Mine, Coke Plant, Trans-
sportation. This ia rather a unique
league and should provide lots of
practice as well as amusement for
the golfers.
High School and Sheiks
Win on Thursday
Two games of basketball were
played on Thursday evening, January 22nd.
The newly formed Cadets team
were beaten by the Anyox High
School by 9 points to 3. Pat Louden and M. Cloke were the chief
scorers for the winners. The Cadets did well to keep the School
players from getting a large number of points. The loser's score
came from free shots for infringements.
A keen game was witnessed
between the Sheiks and Micos from
which the former emerged victorious by a margin of 12 points.
Scores: Sheiks 25—Dresser-7,
Gillies 10, Mikeli-8. Micos 13—
Dwyer-6, M. Flye 2, J, Lazorek-4,
H. Deeth 1.
The Sheiks had matters much
their own way in the first half but
after the interval the Micos made
several effective changes in their
line-up and gave a better display.
The winners showed better combination than their i
same time the losers were smarter    *
at checking than the Sheiks.   '"'•
Celts and Blossoms Are
The Celts once again proved that
they are a second half team on
Monday when they' .accounted for
the Mioos by 20 points to 16. The
.Micos secured most of their points
in the first half and at the interval
held a most substantial lead over
the Celts. This half time lead was
thoroughly deserved as the Micos
outplayed the Celts. In the second
half it. was a( different story, the
Micos made one change which appeared to upset'the combination of
the first period, so that the Celts
had matters much tlieir own way.
Soores: Celts 20—Steele-10, CaU
deroni-6, C. Hill-3, Davies-1.
Micos 16,—Dwyer 10, L. Anderson -2, B.Bass 4.
The Buds lost their game to the
Blossoms by two points. Scores:
Buds 11, Blossoms 13.

latter boat is taking over the Car-
delta's run, and this change will

E. MOSS, Editor and Publisher.
During the past year the world
has been flooded by the views of
writers expressing their opinions as
to what measures should be taken
to raise and stabilize the price of
silver. We have read numerous
articles by leading economists, and
others. A lot of this has been
digested and a lot of it is undigest-
able. It is not our aim to state
our views in these columns, we
merely wish to say that at the present time all proposals to raise and
stabilize the price of silver have
been rebuffed by the majority of
the world's financiers. New York
financiers have turned down the
proposal of letting silver assist in
carrying the financial burdens of
the world as impracticable. There
is one ray of hope, however, in the
dark cloud. Bi-metallism has
many more friends than five or ten
years ago, and as there is not
sufficient gold   to   permit   world
business to properly expand it may
be necessary to standardize the
price of silver and make it another
media of exchange to supplement
gold. F. H. Brownell, chairman
of the American Smelting and Refining Co., has proposed a solution
to the present difficulty. His proposal, which is worthy of consideration is published in our news
columns this week. It is certain
that measures must be taken in the
near future to raise and stabilize
the price of silver. If it is not done
the tremendous trade of China is
closed to the rest of the world and
anarchy will continue to increase
in that country.
The United States coastguard
announces that it has abandoned
the search for pilot Robin Renahan
and two companions who became
missing in northern waters on
October 28 last while flying from
Butedale to Atlin to join the Burke
rescue. The cutter Cygan, which
has been assisting in the search for
the best part of the last three
months, has resumed its regular
duties. The B.C. Police boat P.M.
L. 8 is also being withdrawn from
the search and will return to
Prince Rupert.
Provincial Industries Show
Big Increase In 10 Years
Victoria, Jan., 19, 1931—While
returns of provincial industries ill
money value will show a falling off
from 1929, the quantities produced
in 1930 will compare favorably
with the preceding year. Forestry alone among the basic industries
shows any quantity reduction,
while in agriculture, mining and
fisheries there a decided increase,
and in every department there has
been a marked advance in the past
ten years as the following figures
will show:
Timber scaled, B.F.     2,046,468,959
Logs exported, B.F.'      146,624,269
Lumber exported, B.F.   146.624,269

Coal, tons. 2,595,125
Salmon, cases. 1,187,616
Apples, lbs. 67,721,245
These figures are sufficient to
show the great increase in the out
put of the provinoe within the past
ten years. In saw timber there
has been an increase of nearly
300,000,000 feet: in copper, lead
and zinc there lias been an increase

production has risen by over 30,000
ounces. Apples show an increase
of 94,000,000 lbs. and the salmon
production has grown by over a
million cases.
Canada Has Many Obligations
To Meet
Canada has maturities of more
than 11,000,000,000 to meet by
1934, Premier R. B. Bennett said
in addressing a delegation from the
national council of tho Canadian
Chamber of Commerce recently
and it must not be forgotten, he
said, that there was the probability
of a deficit of $100,000,000 this
"We know conditions will improve," the Premier said. In, fact
there are indications of an improvement at present." He said that
"psychological conditions" were
becoming better.
A small trail shipment of apples
sent to Bu?uos Aires in 1929 proved
so satisfactory that nearly 30 car
load's have been arranged for ship
ment from the 1930 crop.

That's why it's gone."

Provincial and Federal Governments To Discuss Taxes
Following the prorogation of the
coining session of the legislature,
the British Columbia Government
will participate in an interprovin-
cial conference at Ottawa when
matters common to the different-
parts of Canada will be discussed.
Particularly will British Columbia
seek to have certain anomolies in
the matter of taxes ironed out.
Direct taxation in the provinces by
in the form of federal income impositions is felt to be a direct invasion of the rights of the provinces and this will be the subject
of discussion.

Approximately 29,000 people living ln Canada are shareholders In
the Canadian Pacific Railway, their
number having been increased by
over ten thousand during the past
year. Many of these are employees
of the company, while a large percentage of them are small investors
who have bought a few shares with
an idea of safety and profitably
employing their surplus capital.
On January 15, 1931, the city of
Lethbrldge, Alberta, was made a
point of call on the air mall. route
operating between Winnipeg and
Calgary. Lethbrldge is a point of
considerable potential Importance
as the probable point from which
the air line to the Pacific Coast will
commence. Official surveys by
technical officers of the Canadian
Government Civil Aviation Branch
have definitely Indicated the route,
from Lethbrldge as the most feasible passage of the Rocky Mountains.
Operating on an equal footing
with the fastest system In the
world, the Canadian Pacific Grain
Quotation Service installed by the
Canadian Pacific Telegraphs was
officially opened with the New Year

among the world's brokerage centres. Practically perfect operation
of upwards of 80 tape ticker machines, carrying their newB with
lightning speed, beating all previous records by two-thirds, Is announced by W. M. Thompson, manager, western lines, Canadian Pacific Telegraphs.
An official report shows that at
the end of November last, there
were 446,676 licensed radios In Canada or about one for every 22 ot
the population. Ontario leads with
228,480 sets and Quebec next with
81,033. Toronto leads all Canadian
cities with 71,143 sets and ln western Canada Vancouver tops the list
with 17,830 with Winnipeg next
with 16,953. It Is only ten years
since the first programme was
broadcast by radio.

seaweed, in combination with fish
offal, ln producing fish meal which
is a valuable stock food.

Smelter Official Has a
Plan to Stabilize Price
Of Silver
New York—Stabilization of the
price of silver could be accomplished through international co-oper
ation according to Francis H.
Brownell, chairman of the Ameri
can Smelting & Refining Co., who
has devoloped a plan which he
believes would halt the fluctuating
course of the white metal.
The first step in the plan would
be to bring about an informal
understanding between the United
States, England, including India;
France, including Indo-China, and
as many other governments as pos
sihle, that no Bale of silver would
be made for a statod period, say
three years of any silver now or
hereafter owned by the government at less than fixed price—for
example, 50 cents an ounce.
"Seoond—an understanding that
those governments will purchase
the amount of silver they are now
authorized by law to purohase for
subsidiary coinage whenever the
price of silver in the open market
is below the figure agreed upon as
"Third—As compensation for
agreement and to prevent too rapid
a rise, an understanding that the
governments, and particularly
India, may sell government owned
silver whenever the prioe is more
say, than 5 cents above the figure
agreed upon as above."
Latest official report on the field
crops of Canada estimates the 1930
wheat crop at 395,864,000 bushels
or about 11,000,000 bushels more
than the previous official estimate
made last September. 374,000,000
were grown In the Prairie Provinces. The crop is about 91,000,000
bushels more than tn 11129.
Great increase in pork production In Canada on account of the
grain situation was predicted by
Hon. Robert Weir, Minister of Agri.
culture for Canada, at a recent
banquet in Toronto given by him to
agriculturists, business executives
and government representatives on
behalf of the Federal Government
at the Royal Winter Kalr, Toronto.
The salmon puck of British Columbia for the 1930 season Is nearly
100,000 cases higher than the previous record of 1926. The total

occurred in October, 1929. It is a

mounting wages and prioes, the
