Teams Lined Up For
Basketball Season
The third meeting of those interested in Basketball was held on
Monday night and the business of
organization went ahead somewhat.
There will, apparently, be a good
list of men's teams. Entries seem
fairly certain from the Concentrator,
Coke Plant, Boiler Shop, Mechanics, Electrical Dept., and probably
from the Mine. It is not likely
that there will be an intermediate
As matters now stand the senior
eague teams will be manned by
many who are comparative beginners at the game, but the balance
of power seems to be well distributed. Nothing definite has been
heard from the ladies.

allotting the gymnasium for practice.
Good Ore Vein Struck
On Moose
A vein of good ore has been encountered on the Moose property
in the Upper Kitsault Country by
J. W. Strombeek, who owns a
half interest in the property. JT/he
strike was made during close prospecting. The vein is from 4 to 5
feet wide and is composed of high
grade galena ore, carrying good
silves values. Mr. Strombeek is
now engaged in driving a tunnel
on the ore in order to ascertain
values at depth.

Mr. Clark   Addresses
Anyox P. T. A.
To the Anyox P. T. A. on Monday evening Mr. Fordyce Clark submitted an explanation of the revised high school curriculum. En-
arging upon the announcement of
the Department of Education, the
speaker revealed something of the
psychological and sociological bases of crriculum-making, and of the
educational philosophy in the light
of which these should be interpreted. Outlining the objectives defined by the Committtee on Reorganization of Secondary Education and
by later writers, Mr. Clark indicated that the new curriculum approximated more closely to the ideal of
planning a curriculum with the emphasis on the child and in terms of
objectives rather in terms of subject-matter.
In regard to the time to be spent
in school he suggested that it might
be possible to save time some where
in the earlier school grades. Another adjustment might be made in
the adoption of the semester organization in high schools and the promotion of pupils by subjects rather
than by grades.
Matriculation will, he indicated,
receive less emphasis and the success of a high school will be judged
not so much by the success of a
few students, but by the service the
school performs in giving a larger
number of pupils the opportunity to
take a complete course along lines
best adapted to individual development and social efficiency.
In concluding, the speaker intimated that further adjustments below the high school grades would
have to be made, notably in the
provision of junior high school curricula for younger adolescents.
For the teaching profession, he
said, the changes will bring satisfaction to those who are prepared
to work with the new subject-matter and to follow the methods of
up-to-date educational science. A
higher standard of teaching service
is necessary and will have to be
paid for but the profit in a better
school product will far exceed the

E. MOSS, Editor and Publisher;
The mining laws of British Columbia are among the best of any
country in the world. The government gives all possible publicity
to mining. It encourages any
company large or small to develop
prospects. It safeguards the investor in exposing fraudulent companies and its inspectors see that
working hours and conditions for
the miners are not too long or
dangerous. Many States to the
south of us have passed blue-sky
laws. They were designed to protect the fool investor. They have
succeeded, but they have strangled
the industry. This situation was
thoroughly reviewed at the recent
meetng in Spokane of the American
Institute Mining Engineers. John
D. Galloway, provincial mineralogist explained how mining was encouraged in British Columbia, and
at the same time the investor was
protected. Several American representatives condemned the blue-
sky laws in force in some states.
Stewart Campbell, mine inspector
for Idaho, during the somewhat
heated debate said: "So long as a
man is honest, and is digging a
hole, let him dig. What is mining
but a difference of opinion? Don't
pit another man's opinion against
his, let him dig." In other words
why should a mining engineer be
allowed to condemn another man's
efforts because his opinion differed.
Mr. Campbell's opinion is worthy
of consideration. Don't stop a
man from digging. Let him dig.
His opinion is as good probably as
the other fellow's. The Toric ore
body was found by letting men
dig. So was the Premier and the
Dojly Varden, and so will many
more. We need lots of good
honest diggers. They are not all
successful, but neither is every
banker, farmer, business man or
Last week we published an
article dealing with Anyox Night
Schools. Everyone is now thoroughly conversant with the different classes that will be operated
during the winter months.    They
Clay Porter Bonds The
Kenneth Property
Stewart News
The Kenneth group of seven
claims near the head of the south
fork of Glacier Creek, owned by
II. P. Gibson and Louis Legge,
has been bonded by Clay Porter,
prominent and successful mining
man of the district, who located,
financed and put the Porter Idaho
into production, finally disposing of
the control to the Premier Gold
Mining Company.
In financial circumstances and at
an age when most men would be
thinking of taking things easily and
letting the other fellow do the work,
Mr. Porter is looking for more
worlds to conquer. He is not the
retiring kind. No man in the dis-'
trict is more competent to judge the
value of a prospect or a partially
developed mining property, and
when he had thoroughly examined
and sampled the Kenneth, littl
time elapsed until he had secured
the property.

African   Copper  Will  Not
Upset Market
The world consumption of copper
last year was slightly in excess of
2,000,000 tons. It showed an in
crease of fourteen per cent over
that of the year before, but this was
abnormal. The increase in 1927
was only two per cent; and in 1926,
three per cent, but in the two years
before that it was twelve per cent
For the last nine years, since th<
World War, the average increase
has been about nine per cent. If
this nine per cent annual increase
continues, the world will require in
1939, not the 2,000,000 tons it used
last year, but 5,000,000 tons. Of
this, Africa, according to the au
thorities, may be expected to produce 500,000 tons.
also know how much knowledge
can be acquired by attending any
class teaching the subject they are
interested in. Knowing the benefits accruing, can anyone who has
any ambition to succeed, neglect
this opportunity? There are many
young men in Anyox who are
commencing their career in life.
It is primarily for these that the
night schools are operated. Now
is the time for them to learn, while
the mind is free from cares and is
therefore more receptive. A few
months spent in study will acquire
knowledge that cannot be lost or
stolen. It is yours for all time to
use for your benefit and advancement. No one can learn too much,
whether he be young, middle aged,
or advancing in years.

Canadians Abroad Will Be
British Subjects
Steps will be taken by the federal
government at the earliest opportunity either by means of legislation
or through the next census to establish clearly the difference between
British subjects born in Canada and
those from other parts of the Empire or from foreign countries, stated the secretary of state. Canadian nationality will take into account
that citizens of this country are
part of the British Empire and that,
as such, wherever they go in foreign countries they can be considered only as British Subjects.

Differences In the price of wheat
at Chicago and Winnipeg and retarding of the wheat movement ln
western Canada Is due to the view
of Canadian wheat owners that Its
good quality Justifies hpidtng It for
higher prices while British and
continental buyers believe they can
obtain their present requirements
from the Argentine and the United
States, is the explanation of this
condition given out in a statement
recently issued over the signatures
of E. W. Beatty, chairman and
president of the Canadian Pacific
Railway and Sir Henry Thornton,
president of the Canadian National
Railway. Until the present impasse between buyer and seller is
adjusted there will be a practical
stoppage in the movement of grain
with consequent serious effects on
gross and net earnings of both the
rail and water carriers.

Experts of the Canadian Pacific

are at present examining these deposits which Mr. Beatty said he was
satisfied would be a great asset
to Alberta.

their stand ln favor of a continuance of assisted Immigration of selected British settlers of a desirable

Charles Reid, of the Banff
Springs Golf Club, won the Prince
of Wales golf trophy, famous and
coveted prize of golfdom, from a
field of 427 competitors recently.
His score was 144 net, his handicap being If. This is the first
time in the history of the competition that th/B cup has gone to a
Banff player, Calgary golfvs having taken it to that city on each of
the four former competitions.
CanaJa's reindeer Industry takes
a big forward step this yf ar with the

Australians are "fiercely loyal"
so far as Empire Trade is concerned, and buy, for example, 98 per
oent. of their 'utomoblles from
Canadian manufacturers, Sir James
Murdoch, member of the Legislative
Assembly of New South Wa.les, told
the Vancouver Canadian Club recently. Sir James had just returned from a cross-Canada tour by
Canadian Pacific lines and was on
his way back to Australia.
Settlers in the Peace River country have a definite uniformity of
outlook regarding the progress of
the country as a whole, said Col. J.
S. Dennis, Chief Commissioner of
Colonization and Immigration of
the Canadian Pacific Railway, who
has been Inspecting tbe northern
part of Alberta over the Northern
Alberta Railwavs. He was astonished at the readiness of the Boards
of Trade and individual business
men to take a large view even
where It might work temporary
hardship locally.
No Consolidated Smelter At
Powell River
The possibility of Consolidated
Mining & Smelting Company's
coast smelter being established on
Vancouver island, tributary to
Camphell River, emerged clearly
before the provincial water board
when the mining concern abandoned its plan to build a smelter on
Lois River near Powell River.
This left the Powell River Company assured of control of Lois
River, which it desires to use to
make power for the large paper
Canada has become dominant in
the wheat trade, supplying, before
the war, 11 per cent, of the world's
supply, now over 50 per cent.
Canada supplies three-fifths of the
world's barley and one-third of the
world,s oats.
Will Stop Foreign Dumping
The new special dumping clause
to prevent foreign goods being
dumped on the Canadian market at
prices below the cost of production,
which is to be invoked in every
case, is expected to have a far
reaching effect in increasing protection to Canadian producer.
The regulation will still be much
less drastic than the one in the
United States. The Canadian
clause applies only to reductions
up to 15 per cent of what is considered a fair market value. Reductions above that amount are not
affected, whereas in the United
States the clause goes up to 75 per
cent reduction.
Grave unemployment is a result
of the tie-up which now exists

Fine Sport on French River
Expert anglers from Chicago,
New York and other United States
cities, as well as Canada, are just
now in the throes of the big fish
contest at the French River Bungalow Camp which has been one of
the major prizes of anglers on this
continent for the past few years.
To date the lead has been taken by
30-lb. muskie, but there is still
time to beat even this monster. A
point of great interest to anglers
is the fact that the Gamp is on the
main line of the Canadian Pacific
Railway and is accordingly easily
accessible to sportsmen from the
large cities. In addition to fishing facilities of the highest kind
there are also' ample opportunities
for canoeing for hundreds of miles

Churchill Is   Canada's
Northerly Port
At a bottle-shaped natural harbor on the western shore of Hudson
Bay, 500 miles from the Arctic
Circle, gangs of workers are putting
