Terrific Wind and Rain
Storm Causes Havoc
In District
One of the biggest wind and
rain storms ever experienced in
this districts, |truok without warning on Monday. It rooked houses:
broke one of the high wireless
telegraph poles at Anyox, putting
the wireless station out of commission, and blew numerous trees over
the government telegraph line,
rendering it useless. It also blew
in windows of some of tlie residences at the mine. Two hunting
parties who were out from Anyox
had their boats wrecked. The
heavy rain was also responsible for
the rock slide at the Bonanza mine
which destroyed the bunkhouse
resulting in death and injuries to
many. Rain fell in torrents during the high wind, and many
housewives were busy mopping up
water blown under doors, etc.
While no property damage was
done at Alice Arm, the high wind
kept everyone's nerves in .a jumpy
condition. Along the hillside west
of the town giant trees crashed in
hundreds. The government telegraph line was broken in numerous
places, and the Dolly Varden railway is blocked by trees and rock
Road.foreman J. Graham, after
a survey of the damage on the railway, states that in some places the
masses of fallen trees covering the
traok is indescribable. At the entrance to the canyon at 5-mile a
huge rock weighing 60 or 70 tons
crashed from above carrying the
track into the river. Trees falling
from the top of the hill are piled up
in an almost inextricable mass and
all along the railway, single trees
and slides obstruct transportation.

A memorial servioe for those

ing at the Recreation Hall. The

Disaster at Bonanza Mine Takes a Toll
Of Six Lives, and Several Others Injured
Without the slightest warning a
slide of loose rock and dirt, loosened by the heavy rains, struck the
big bunkhouse at the Bonanza
Mine, at about three o'clock on
Monday afternoon. The terrific
impact completely destroyed the
building, instantly killing five men
and injuring others, one of whom
succumbed to his injuries on Wednesday. A portion of the building
was toppled over a high blutt into
Bonanza Creek.
Rescue parties were immediately
rushed from Anyox and a scene of
desolation met their gaze. Men imprisoned in the debris were quickly
extricated, yiven first aid and rushed by boat to the hospital. By prodigious efforts on the part of the
recuers all but four men were accounted for late on Monday night,
and all the injured had received
medical treatment. Throughout
Monday night, launches of the
Granby Co. transported fresh men
from Anyox so that rescue work
could be carried on uninterruptedly,
and on Tuesday afternoon, the four
missing men were uncovered, but
life in everv instance was extinct.
The dead are: James Grant, shift
boss, born in County Down, Ireland, and is survived by a sister residing in Ireland. His body was
recovered on Monday, and was not
buried in the slide.
Lee O'Connor, hoistman, aged
45 years, born in Ontario, and is
survived by a wife and three children, aged 11,8 and 6 years, who
reside at Alice Arm.
C. P. Johnston, compressor man,
aged 45 years, Canadian, and is
survived by two daughters, aged 18
and 16 years, who are attending
high school at Prince Rupert.
Alfred Palm, watchman, aged
51, born in Finland, and is survived
by a wife and two children, residing
at Kallby, Finland.
Charles Mitchell, miner, aged 50
years, born in Lithuania, single,
and not known to have any ' dependents.
Paul Anderson, tram operator,
aged 25 years, born in Denmark,
single, and not known to have any
dependents. Diep in hospital from
injuries on Wednesday.
Those who are still receiving
treatment at the hospital, are: John
Lemich, Dan Ninkovich, John
Haapala, Dusan Darcevich, Nels
Janson, John Dereworiz, Mike
Lekich, Andrew Spitzer, Frank
Pellizzari and G. Maki. All are
making progress toward recovery.
Several received treatment at the
hospital for minor injuries and
many had miraculous escapes.
M. E. Merrill, foreman at the
Bonanza, was found buried in the
debris, but suffered no severe injury.
The funeral of all the deceased,
except Lee O'Connor, will be held
today at 2 p.m., Rev. F. Bushfield
and Rev. J. S. Brayfield officiating.
Interment will take place at the
cemetery. The body of Lee O'Connor will be taken home to Alice
Arm this afternoon, and burial will
take place tomorrow at the Alice
Arm cemetery.
This is the greatest disaster that
has ever befallen the district and
the untimely-death of so many men
cast a gloom over the district
throughout the week.
The Bonanza mine is situated
about 1 y2 miles from Anyox smelter and is operated by the Granby

Tragic Death of Mr?!.
O'Connor Deplored
Due to the big storm on Monday
which disrupted the telegraph line,
news of the Bonanza disaster did
not reach Alice Arm until Tuesday evening. The whole town was
shocked by the news, especially
when it was learned that one of
the best liked men in town was
among the victims. The late Lee
O'Connor was a general favorite
with everyone. His genial disposition and pleasing manners won
him a host of friends, and deep
sympathy is expressed to his sor
rowing wife and children iu tlie
loss of a husband and father.
Former Anyox Resident
Passes Away
S. Mikeli, who had been a resi
dent of Anyox for the past 15
years passed away at Prince
Rupert Hospital on November 6th.
The cause of deatli was tuberculosis.
Deceased in survived by a wile
and two children, one of whom was
bom a week previous to his death,
and Mrs. Mikeli was an inmate
of Prince Rupert Hospital at the
time of her husband's death.
The late Mr. Mikeli left Anyox
last April to reside in »Prince
Rupert. He was taken ill in June,
and gradually declined. He was
a native of Jugoslovakia and was
about forty years of age.
Interment took place at Prince
Rupert during the week, and a
brother, Frank, of the deceased
left Anyox on Monday to attend
the funeral.
Struck by Falling Tree
And Dies In Woods
While Hunting
Tlie high wind claimed another
death at Anyox on Monday, when
R. Liukkonen met his deatli by a
falling tree while goat hunting.
The unfortunate man was accompanied by two companions,
V. Junilla and H. Katigos who
left Anyox on Monday morning to
hunt goat in the vicinity of Has-
ting's Arm. While on tlieir way
up the mountain opposite the north
end of Larcom Island, the high
wind which had sprung up blew
down a tree which struck Luik
konen carrying him into a gulch
three hundred feet below
Owing the inaecessability his
companions could not reach him
without the aid of ropes They
decided to return for assistance
but on arrival at the beach found
their row boat smashed by the
high wind. They were rescued by
Clarence Dresser on Tuesday morning. A rescue party of seven headed by J. A. Anderson left immediately to render assistance. On
reaching the scene of the tragedy
they found life extinct, the body
being buried in snow. They returned on Wednesday bringing out
the deceased.
Deceased was a native of Finland, aged 38 years of age, and
leaves to mourn his loss, a wife,
residing in Anyox. He was employed as a tripper at the Concentrator.
Sale of Poppies Realize Over
The efforts of those ladies of the
I. O. D. E. who on Saturday sold
the little red poppies, emblematical
of the bloody fields of Flanders,
met with a hearty response from
the people of Anyox.
The sale of poppies realized the
sum of $160.51, which will be de
voted to relief work among needy
ex-service men and their dependents. This very respectable sum
reflects great credit on the ladies
responsible, especially when it is
taken into consideration that money in camp is not nearly as plentiful as in former years.
The Anyox branch of the Canadian Legion wish to take this opportunity of thanking the ladies of
the I. O. D. E. for their great
assistance in the sale of poppies on
Saturday and also the public for
their generous response to the

Death, the grim reaper, before
whom we all must bow, took a toll
of seven lives in Anyox during the
week. The general rejoicing and
festivity which marks Thanksgiving
Day and the anniversary of the
signing of the World War Armistice was transformed into grief and
mourning by the sad news which
shocked the town late on Monday
afternoon. Relentless death does
not await the pleasures of anyone.
Often it strikes swiftly and cruelly,
leaving behind sorrow and desolation. Several of those stricken
on Monday leave dependents behind to carry on under handicaps,
and the heartfelt sympathy of the
entire district is extended to them
in their affliction.
Liberal   Leaders   May
Change Seats
A special dispatch to the Vancouver Province from Victoria predicts that, immediately after the
1931 census, the problem of redistribution of British Columbia legislative seats will be undertaken. It
is suggested that the riding of
Oniineca may be eliminated and
joined with Fort George on one
end and Skeena on the other while
a new riding would be created in
the Peace River which, by reason
of increased population, will be
entitled to separate representation
for which the district has clamored
for some time.
Should the riding of Omineca,
which has been represented by A
M. Manson K. C. since 1916, be
abolished, the suggestion is made
that Mr. Manson may seek election
in Prince Rupert seat while T. D.
Pattullo might offer' himself in

Hold Annual Meeting
A Victoria despatch says: Directors of Dalhousie Mining Compauy
Ltd., were re-elected at a meeting
of shareholders here. Officers for
the ensuing year include Andrew
Wright, President; E. Butter-
worth, Treasur?r; D. S. Tait,
Secretary, and W. D. Brown, Hen
ry Mitchell, George Cameron of
Stewart and William A. Pratt of
Vancouver, Directors.
The President in his address
stated that they hoped by next
spring to have actually blocked
out sufficient ore to keep the proposed mill running for two years
or more, and in view of the length
of ore bodies exposed on the surface, and allowing for them to
extend downward for a reasonable
depth, there is probably sufficient
ore for the property to keep a mill
of reasonable size going for an
indefinite period.
Efforts to finance the work have
met excellent success, and within a
short time it is expected that all
financing will be completed to
equip the property with a good
mill of 50 tons a day initial capacity and to develop sufficient ore to

"A French-Canadian Wedding in 1830"
A hundred years ago when our great-great-grandfathers and grandmothers were marrying and
giving in marriage, the French-Canadians made the
occasion one of the most colorful and joyous in tlieir
lives. Reconstruction of such a wedding with the
utmost fidelity to costume and customs has been done
by Alderic Bourgeois, Montreal newspaperman and
revue writer, who has written a sketch with the above
title for the Quebec Festival to be held at the Chateau
Frontenac, October 16-18. Musical settings will be by
4)scar O Bnen, Montreal composer and song writer.
One of the old customs was the arrival of uninvited
guests, attracted by the good cheer and general gaiety,
who paid their scot with songs and dances. These will
be represented in the sketch by Lionel Daunais, Miville
Belleau, Emile Boucher and Fortunat Champagne, of
the Bytown Troubadours, who will keep things moving
with true French-Canadian verve, singing in all 15 old
wedding songs harmonized by Mr. O'Brien. There will
be choruses of men and women's voices, a quartette of
young girls, fiddlers and folk dancers.
The World's Largest Sound System
The Royal York, the new
Canadian Paciflo Hotel In Toronto
and the largest modern descendant
of the Village Inn beneath the
Union Jack, is being equipped with
the most extensive centralised
radio and publio address system
installation ever attempted in any
part of the world. The equipment
was designed and manufactured
in the Radio and Telephone
Laboratories of the Northern Electric Company, in Montreal and is
now being installed in the hotel.
When the Royal York is de-
dared officially opened on June
12th, this year in each of its twelve
hundred bed rooms will be a radio
outlet on the wall to which headphones may be attached, so that
guests may enjoy one or two pro-
Srams originating from anyone of
ve different sources.   The Vice-
Regal Suite will be equipped with
specially designed loudspeakers
having the most pleasing tone
quality and an artistic appearance
in keeping with the decoration of
the suite.
In the main dining room, ball
room, banquet hall, convention
hall, roof garden, and the private
dining rooms will be located groups
of both microphones and horns;
permitting either the picking up
of programs from these locations
and the "broadcasting" of them
to all parts of the house, or the
distribution of a program to any
one of these points from any other
locality or via radio from outside.
Two highly sensitive and ultra
selective radio receiving sets will
be located in the control room on
the fourth floor.' There also will
be found imposing "mixer" and

Big Success
The annual Armistice Day
dance, sponsored by the Anyox
Branch of the Canadian Legion
was held on Tuesday evening at
the Gymnasium. It was scheduled
to bo held on Monday, but due to
the Bonanza disaster, was postponed. A largo number of people
attended, and an enjoyable evening
was spent, the spacious floor being
taxed to the limit throughout the
Harry Ward's orchestra provided
excellent music, and kept everyone
on their toes and ready for more.
The appetising supper, was greatly enjoyed.
The entire proceeds of the evening will be devoted to the Bonanza
Relief Fund.

British Columbia
Department of Mines
Every ton of British Columbia coal used means employment for local miners and mine workers.
It means the maintenance of more homes in the Province.
It means the continued local circulation of funds *which
otherwise would leave the Province.
It means, if every B. C. user of coal will use local coal,
that the Vancouver Island, Nicola-Prinoeton, and Crow's
Nest Pass coal fields, whose coal workers have boon struggling on half time or less for months, again will be favored
with prosperous conditions.
For these reasons British Columbians should consider
carefully the source of the coal which fills their bins this
