Business Meeting Held
Community League
The Anyox Community League
Council on Wednesday recommended that Councillor Gourlay proceed
with arrangements for a Hallowe'en
party for children in the Gymnasium
on Thursday October 31st. The
use of the Gymnasium was allotted
to the Canadian Legion over the
week-end of November 11th. foi
the annual banquet and the Armistice dance.
Due to the non-arrival of Mr.
Ring, the position of caretaker at
the Gymnasium was declared vacant:
and applications will be called for,
these to be dealt with at a special
meeting on Monday.
Arrangements will be made at
the request of the Mine Club to
allow Mine Club members to invite
one lady to each show. The cost
of this plan, about $2.50 monthly,
will be paid by the hill organization.
The Red Parrot which has operated
at a profit will likely close on
October 15th.
Mr.    MacDougall   recommended
the purchase of new curtains forthe
Library and the  provision  of  curtains  in   the  dining-room   of   the
Gymnasium.    Attention   will    also
be  given to   the   lighting   in   the
The matter of book reservations
I in  the  Library was  discussed   at
length, different opinions as  to  its

present system for a while longer.
Scoutmaster Gale reported that
there were sixty-five boys regularly
engaged in the movement, including
Rovers, Scouts, and Cubs. In
connection with the Christmas Toy
Shop work some elementary manua
training was being given.    Another
!advantage of the movement lies in
the provision of registration cards

which takes care of boys moving

Streets of Alice Arm
Are Named
The streets of the new townsite
(formerly Indian Reserve) at Alice
Arm received their names yesterday. The naming of the streets
was undertaken by J. A. Anderson,
superintendent of public works,
after several suggestions had been
submitted. Tho naming is necessary before any money can be spent
on making the streets.
The streets run north  and  south
and avenues east and  west.    The
street alongside the   Dolly Varden
railway,   commencing at  the  Coliseum   will   be   called    "Roundy"
Street, after  Frank  Roundy,   who
staked the first mineral claim in the
district and erected the first cabin.'
The next street is "Kitsault" and
runs from the sawmill to  B.  Tur-
bitt's residence, from there north it
is Kitsault Road.    The next, which
is   the   central   street,   has   been
named Victoria, in memory of that
illustrious sovereign, whose birthday
we  honor   on   May   24th.    Bruce
Street comes next, and was named
in commemoration of His Honor R.
Randolph Bruce, lieutenant governor, who paid the town a visit this
year.    He was the  first lieutenant
governor to visit Alice Arm.    The
road along the  west  bank  of the
Kitsault River has been named McBride street in honor of one of the
province's  outstanding statesmen.
The avenues running east and west
have been  numbered  first,   second
and third.    The road across   the
Kitsault bridge traversing the flats
has been named Illiance road.
Sports' Banquet Of The
Community League
Great Success
On Friday evening, Oct. 4th,
the Community League, with the
support of the Granby Company,
entertained the men and boys who
have been associated with sport
during the past year. Over one
hundred guests enjoyed a tastefully served selection of victuals and
drinks, and there were many tributes voiced in praise of the excellent arrangements made by the
committee which, included Messrs.
Dresser, Gourlay, Winklemann and
Roberts, along with President
Manning and Secretary McRae.
B. M. Buck was a most agreeable
toastmaster and ably directed a
corps of entertainers which comprised Messrs. MoRitchie, Aylward,
Varnes, Stenton, Eve, Ridley,
Hopkinson, Armstrong, Sheen and
Anderson. The An>'ox Band and
the Syncopated Six Orchestra
were features on  the programme.
Arranged on a velvet covered
dais, were the trophies won by the
players of baseball and basketball.
These included the Granby Trophy for the Elks' Baseball team

Big Assay Returns From
New Gold Strike
The recent discovery of gold ore
on the Elkhorn group at Hastings
Arm promises to be the richest ore
find ever made in northern B. C.
Returns from samples that were
recently assayed gave values
of $8,441.00 per ton in gold. In
addition to gold values the ore also carries silver and lead.
The owners are busily engaged
in stripping the vein, and plan to
take, out as much ore as possible
this fall, before the snow conditions render surface work impossible.
Those who have visited the
property state that the possibilities
of a large tonnage of rich ore are

J. A. Anderson, district superin

the condition of the streets on the
new townsite this week. He stated
to the Herald that at the present
time the work of clearing could not
be undertaken owing to the number
of shacks and houses sitting on the
streets. If these are moved by the
owners, work of clearing the streets
will be commenced this fall. It is
hoped that as many as possible will
move at once. If this is done no
inconvenience will be experienced
later when the existing roads arc
blocked by buildings. If the clearing is done this fall it will provide
work for a number of men, until
the first heavy snow fall.

I society is making a worth while attempt to supply opportunities
that many people have lacked and
some have neglected.
There will be many  who enroll
with the notion   that   they   have
found a   short cut to  better paid
employment.    Those     to     whom
success conies afford  a dangerous
example to many who forget that
satisfaction in such courses is likely to be obtained only by adequate
preparation not   only  of the instructor for teaching but also of
the student for  learning.    Many
adults are reluctant to admit  the
ack of schooling fundamental to
rapid and sound technical training.
Such people would do well  to admit to themselves, at least,  their
deficiencies, and  hasten  to repair
them in  the comparative privacy
of    correspondence    study.   And
then there are some who are even
rash enough to deny the  necessity
of much of the  schooling   given
children and who encourage those
in their care to forsake learning for
earning as soon as possible.   This
element seems to have carried  the
lay at the Nanaimo convention.
The   offspring   of such   will, no
loubt, have bitter reason  to quote
"The fathers have eaten  the sour
grapes and the children's teeth are
set on edge."
As a check on the exploitation of
children, departmental regulations
limit the instruction given in night
schools to "persons of the age of
fifteen years and upwards", and
"And no person who can attend or
does attend a day-school shall be
admitted to a night-school." More-
Despite the cancellation of the
motion picture on October 4th.,
fewer than thirty people attended
the meeting in the United Church
Hall to discuss the organization of
night-school classes. The organizer
D. J. Hartley, principal of the elementary school, announced that a
long list of prospective instructors
had been arranged, and that numerous courses of vocational value
would be offered if sufficient students
could be enrolled.
The Department of Education, he
said, requires an average nightly
attendance of ten students which
makes it almost imperative to obtain an enrolment of fifteen students
so that the classes may continue
throughout the season. The instructors present were asked to indicate the content of the courses
offered. Mr. R. O. Cutler intimated
that he would offer a course in
building and design which would
be of value to anyone associated
with the building trades or in house
construction. This course will not
require the purchase of much equipment by the student.
The enrolment of students in the
English for foreigners class was
discussed and plans made to attract
larger classes, the statement being
made that there are one hundred
more than last year who need such
instruction. A course in engines,
both steam and internal combustion,
will be given if sufficient students
come forward.
Little information was available
concerning the courses in Flotation
Process and Coking practice. Concerning the latter the Herald has
been informed.that at least a high
school knowledge of mathematics
and science is prerequisite to the
fullest success. There seemed to
be little demand for courses in the
usual school subjects, these being
available through correspondence.
A class in singing to be led by N.
Redman is projected. Book keeping will be offered by VV. Porteous

The large number of friends of
Mr. J. Swanson, mine superintendent at Anyox will regret to learn
that he is leaving the service of the
Granby Co. Mr. Swanson is one
of the oldest residents in Anyox
coming here in 1913 from Phoenix.
He joined the Granby Co. in
Phoenix in 1898, and for the past
31 years has fulfilled his duties in a
most capable and efficient manner.
He is one of the most valuable
members of the management of the
Granby Co. and during his long
term of office introduced many new
and efficient methods in mining the
large bodies of low grade copper
ore both at Phoenix and Anyox. ALICE   ARM   AND   ANYOX   HERALD. Saturday.    October   12,  1929

From the advance reports on
business of a number of companies
operating in various parts of Western Canada on more than a localized scale, it would appear that
the present year is one of decidedly
stiff competition.
The fact of the matter is that
during the past two years there
has been an influx to Western
Canada of strong national organizations which have seen the wisdom of laying foundations for the
future in a section of Canada holding forth the promise of exceptional growth.
In more than a few instances
such companies have undertaken
this expansion with the full realization that operating profits on
western branches would be nonexistent for a year or two, at least.
They have prepared to "dig themselves in" and are doing it.
Consequent to this recognition
of the Western Canadian field is a
temporary over-expansion of commercial facilities in several directions, where checkmating by the
larger companies is in evidence.
The situation is not deplorable;
neither is it alarming. It is a natural outcome of development and
one that will work itself out with
no ill effects, from the Western
Canadian point of view.
The forces of progress are working strongly throughout the country from the head of the lakes to
the Pacific Coast—never more so.
indeed. And there is a solid substructure beneath this industrial
and commercial development.
Western Canada will continue to
grow rapidly and take care of the
anticipatory programmes of wideawake companies which have carried their organizations westward.
