The Press Is Subject Oi Mine Rard Time Dance
Y. P. A. Debate
On Thursday evening, November 23rd. the Anglican Young
People's Association of Anyox held
another interesting debate. The
resolution being: "Resolved that
the influence of the modern press
is to be deplored." Miss H. Simpson and Mv. G. Williscroft upheld
the affirmative, while Miss D.
Plumb and Mr. H. Henderson were
for the negative. The debate was
held on parliamentary lines, and
Bev. A. Abraham acted as Speaker
of the House.
The affirmative held that its
influence should be deplored on
account of its potential powers, in
that it could do a lot of good in
bettering the conditions of the
world, but does not. It is divided
up into different groups and each
group has its own selfish policy,
' i anything opposed to this
; !icy is not printed or allowed a
.   r, hearing.
The negative maintained that
influence  of   the   press is a
,ulder of opinions, a builder of
■\tions aud a civilizer of empires.
.. andsfor justice and honesty
in ringing out the horrors of
ori. -. Its editorials are from the
pmis of the world's greatest writ-

t   every member of a family.

Parents of Miss V. Waram
Hurt In Car Accident
Mr. and Mrs. V. S. Waram, parents of Miss V. Waram of the
nursing staff of tlie Anyox General
Hospital were both seriously injured in an automobile accident on
Saturday last on the Yale road
near Langley Prairie.
Miss Waram received the 6rst
news of the accident when it was
flashed over the radio, and left on
Wednesday for Vancouver, in
which city her parents reside.
Press reports from Vancouver
state the oar in whioh Mr. and Mrs.
Waram were riding went over the
side of the road and turned over
five times before coming to a stop
in a ditch. Both were unconsoious
when found. Mr. Waram received
injuries to his head and pelvis, and
Mrs. Waram. who was less seriously injured had several ribs broken
and other injuries.
Was Popular
Just by way of variety, the energetic Mine Branch of the A. C. L.
staged a Hard Times Dance, in the
Mine Hall on Friday the'24th.
which proved a successful drawing
card. Prizes were given for the
best "Hard Times" costumes, and
several novel ideas were evident.
Mr. and Mrs. Stubbs headed the
list of prize winners, with Mrs. M.
Campbell in second plaoe. Mrs.
Ed. Gibb, dressed in a rag rug and
a broad smile, was highly commended. The prizes were present'
ed by Mr. McNicholas, himself
reduced to the use of a barrel as
wearing apparel and names suoh
as Mr. and Mrs. Hard Times, Mrs.
Depression, Mrs. Tough Going,
were given to the winners. Good
music, an appetizing supper, and
an excellent atmosphere made the
evening most enjoyable.

Dr. Mandy Speaks On
Mining In District
Dr. J. T. Mandy, resident engineer for the northwestern district,
told of the revival of activity in
the Portland Canal and Alice Arm
areas and of the anticipated recovery in the Atlin area, at the Western Annual Meeting of the Canadian Institute of Mining and
Metallurgy, recently held in Vancouver. The importance of large
operations in maintaining the financial stability of a district, was
stressed by Dr. Mandy, who pointed
out that Premier mine has a
monthly payroll of $50,000 and
Granby a monthly payroll at Anyox
of $125,000.
The engineer declared that there
is much virgin territory of promise
in the north ooastal area for prospecting.
Dr. Mandy referred to the promising start made upon the operation
of new and the re-opening of old
gold properties on the coast and on
Queen Charlotte Islands. It was
significant, he asserted, that the
oldest lode gold mine in the province, at Gold Harbor, Moresby
Island, was again a producer.
He described the Surf Point
mine on Porcher Island, controlled
by Noah Timmins interests, as one
of the most promising. This property is already shipping.
Six new lode gold operations, he
said, had been started in his district.

Our Present
Provincial Debt
The newly appointed Minister of
Finance, Honorable John Hart,
recently stated—and he is in a
position to know what he is talking
about—that the Provincial debt of
British Columbia is 167 millions of
dollars. Previous Ministers of
Finance have told us of the large
and growing debt, but the majority
of people view it complacently.
While admitting that the debt
should be decreased instead of increased, they refuse to get unduly
excited over the matter, and continue with their work and their
pleasures in the hope that it will
be eventually solved by whatever
government is in power at the time
The piling up of this huge debt has
been blamed to the two-party form
of government. Each party spend
ing lavishly when in office in order
to win popularity. If such is the
case then the result of the recent
general election shows that the
people of British Columbia are still
willing to pay the price of party
government. Every country in the
world, and every province in the
Dominion of Canada gets the form
of government the biggest group of
citizens wishes. Changes come
by force or by the ballot box.
When the big majority of people are
in favor of a change it goes into
effect. Many instances of drastic
changes are well known, such as in
England in 1642, France in 1789,
Russia in 1917, Germany in 1918
and again this year. Great changes
have also taken place in recent
years in Italy, Spain, Portugal,
Austria, Cuba and other countries.
The most powerful governments of
the world are helpless in the face of
overwhelming adverse public opinion. British Columbia could
change to either one of three new
forms of government. We could
revert to a Crown Colony and be
ruled by a Governor appointed from
London. We could choose a dictator, or throw ourselves into the
arms of the socialists. We recently declined the latter. We havn't
been given the privilege of voting
for the two former, and the reason
for this is because nd one came
forward to champion either cause
during the last election, because its
success was hopeless. British Columbians are not y'et ready for any
drastic changes, .otherwise they
would have gfineiiinto effect. If,
however, the present debt increases
a big change may take place at an
early date.      ■:  *'

W. J. Asselstine Aims
Assistance For Small
Mining Co's
The importance of assistance
being given to the smaller mining
properties of the country in equipping themselves for production of
concentrates along proper metallurgical lines, the proceeds of which
could be used in financing further
development of ore bodies, was
stressed by W. J. Asselstine, mill
superintendent of the Premier Gold
Mining Co. Ltd., and newly elected
M. L. A. for Atlin, in speaking before the Prince Rupert Gyro Club at
luncheon yesterday, says the Prince
Rupert Daily News. Stating that
there were a number of possibilities
along this line in this district, Mr.
Asselstine intimated that it was his
intention, as a member of the Legislature, to endeavor to have the government extend assistance of this
kind to worthy properties. In doing
this, use could be made of legislation which had been passed as far
back as 1918 providing for government aid in the establishment of
small customs concentrating plants.
Of course, there had been many
changes and developments in the
field of mining and metallurgical
methods and treatments since this
legislation had been put on the
statute books but the policy was
still a valuable and practicable one.
Mr. Asselstine stated that he
knew personally of at least three
promising small properties which
found it impossible to go into production because of inability to
finance the small concentrating
plants while, at the same time, the,
big companies had turned the properties down because the ore bodies,
while of good value, were not large
enough to interest them. As a result of modern metallurgical developments, it was now possible to
equip properties with five or ten ton
mills at a cost of some $10,000 laid
down. By concentrating 10 tons
of $10 or $15 ore a day, which
would not stand the cost of smelter
shipment, an actual profit of $40
per day could be made, or about
$1000 per month. It could .be
readily seen where the money thus
made available could assist in further development, particularly in times
such as these when it was difficult
to obtain funds for development
without immediate returns.
Mr. Asselstine, in opening, referred briefly to the great importance of mining as an industry in
such a province as British Columbia,
As far as the province generally
was concerned, it was a good deal
more important than agriculture
and it was regrettable that it was
neglected at times and the encouragement it deserved not given.
Also in many cases there had been
the spectacle of properties being
equipped with "monuments" in the
way of large concentrating plants,
etc. before adequate ore bodies had
been developed.

Seven years ago I had it newly-

"Royal Scot" in Rugged Setting
Putting her way along the
tumbling Fraser canyon over
roaring trestles and through
cavernous tunnels, the "Royal
Scot" 1b shown here as she approached North Betfd, B.C., at the
start of her crossing of the Canadian Rockies over the scenic main
line ot the Canadian Pacific Rail-
Way.    The  London,  Midland . &
Scottish flyer accomplished the
Rockies crossing without benefit
of "pusher" power and entirely
under her own steam, thus writing another achievement into the
record of her Canadian and American tour. The. rugged nature
of the mountains along the C.P.R.
line near North Bend, with the
Fraser River rushing through its
rocky caverns to the Pacific,
shows the kind of country this
famous British train conquered on
her history-making trip over the
Canadian Pacific.
Canadians continued to give the
Royal Scot a warm-hearted welcome. Western Canadian cities
turned out almost en masse to
cheer and examine the visitor
from the Mother land.

Warriors, Spooks and
Bon. Cons. Win
Ball Games
A fair number of people witnessed the basketball games on
Friday the 24th. when three fast
bouts were played.
The flrst game ran pretty oiose
all the way, the Pirates finally
being taken captive by the Warriors. It was a clever tussle with
the issue in doubt right up to the
final whistle. Scoring honors
were divided between Hill, Dan
MoDonald, and O'Neill for the
winners, with Scott and Falconer
the bright lights for the Pirates.
The teams: Pirates, Scott 14,
Donald McDonald 2, K.  Falconer
8, J. Dodsworth 3, Parsons.
Warriors:  Hill 7, D.   McDonald
9, D. O'Neill 11, Harrison 2, Dom-
inato 3.
In the Ladies' game the Aces
suffered a defeat of 21-9 at the
hands of the Spooks, the greater
experience and steady confidence
of the elusive ghosts being responsible. The Aces were fast, eager
and willing. These qualities supplemented by a little more knowledge and experience will put them
in first place.
Jean Pinokney is developing the
knack of finding the basket, getting rid of the ball in much quicker fashion. K. Eve was the
stellar scorer for the Spooks.
The teams: Aces, P. Loudan 1,
N. Salmon, D. Rogers, J. Pinckney
7, May Barclay 1, D. Taylor.
Spooks: L. Dresser 2, M. Cloke
1, K. Eve 9, Mrs. Phillips 1, M.
Dresser 6, T. Gordon 2.
The senior game, in which the
Bon. Cons, beat the Trojans 19-17,
was fast, but ragged in spots. The
Trojans especially were over-eager,
taking too many chanoes on long
passes and field shots, when a
little more maneuvering might
have been better. The Bon Cons,
combined nicely and checked well.
Bud Gillies, top notcher for the
Trojans, was watched effectively
and given few ohances to score.
For the Bon. Cons. Vance and
Steele played well and gave the
enemy plenty to worry over.
