C. 0. Fricker Honored
By The Canadian
A full muster of members of the
Anyox Branch Canadian Legion
B. E. S. L., turned out to a social
and smoker in the Legion Hall on
Thursday last. May 10th. to do
honor to their comrade, C. 0.
Frioker, who was soon to leave for
Northern Rhodesia. A program
of musio and singing was gone
through during the evening and
a most enjoyable time spent.
Mr. Frioker, who is a oharter
member of the Anyox Branch,
which was formed in March, 1927,
has been one of the mainstays of
that body and has held office of
one kind or another continuously
since its inception. As a token of
the great esteem which his fellow
members have for him he was made
the recipient of a handsome pen
and • pencil set, the presentation
being made hy President J. A. D.
Stewart. Mr. Stewart referred to
the splendid service which Com
rade Frioker had always given to
the Legion, and regretted his loss
to the community.
Mr. Fricker expressed his regret
at having to sever his connection
with the Anyox Branch. He reviewed the aims and objects of the
Legion, and pointed out the handicaps under whioh ex-service men
had labored since their return from
the war. Such men had given
perhaps five or six of the best years
of their lives, only to find on their
return to civil life that their jobs
were no longer open to them.
Mr, W. B. Maxwell, Assistant
Superintendent of the Anyox plant
eulogized Mr. Frioker's work here,
and wished him every suocess iu
his new sphere. The program included songs by C. West, J. Varnes,
E. Phillips, B. Lavery and Len
Jenkins, also community singing
to the accompaniment of the Legion Orohestra and concluded with
the singing of "He's a Jolly Good
Fellow." They then adjourned to
the home of Mr. C. P. Ashmore,
where the ladies of the Collison of
Kincolith Chapter, I. O. D. E.,
were holding a social function.

Makes Inspection of  Alice
Arm. Bridges and Railway
H. MacDonald, general road
foreman, for the southern distriot
of Atlin, and who has held the
position of road foreman at Stewart
for many years, arrived at Alice
Arm on Thursday from Stewart in
order to make an inspection of the
state of the looal bridges and also
make an examination of the lower
portion of the Dolly Varden Railway. The railway suffered from
washouts last fall when high water
prevailed in the Kitsault River.
It is the only means cf transportation up the Kitsault Valley and
unless it is repaired will work a
hardship on mining property owners who wish to take in supplies
for development work. Its present
state of dis-repair would also discourage any mining company from
bonding any properties in this
After making an inspection Mr.
MacDonald stated that at present
he could not state definitely just
how much repair work would be
undertaken this summer. He oer-'
tainly felt, however, that the railway should at least be temporarily
Bride-Elect Received
Room Shower
All faucets were turned on full
blast at the home of Miss Dora
Grigg on Friday evening May 11th.
when a so-called "bathroom shower" was given to Miss Vera Eve,
whose marriage is to take place on
June 6th. The event resembled a
cloudburst, which brought down
everything from towels to toilet
fixtures. The gifts were all contained in a cradle and placed before
the bewildered young lady.
Court whist was played during
the evening, there being six tables
of cards. Miss Isabel Gillies won
the first prize, Miss Alice Dodsworth the second, and Miss Mae
Barclay secured the consolation
parcel. A prize was also given to
the guest of honor.
Our Gardeners Have Their
Little Worries
A oertain prominent citizen of
the Flats, is greatly oonoerned
about the depredations on his garden by a small but plump sparrow.
This persistent marauder always
comes along at meal times, causing
our harrassed friond much annoyance, as coffee and bacon grows
oold meanwhile. Anyone with a
remedy to suggest, kindly leave
same in a sealed envelope at the
Beaoh Pool Room.
Fatal Accident At The
Hidden Creek Mine
A fatal accident occurred at the
Hidden Creek Mine on Monday,
May 14th. when Domenico Marrone
lost his life as the result of a fall in

stope to another on the Zero Level,
when he evidently slipped and fell
a distance of 120 feet. His body
was discovered shortly afterwards
and it was found that his skull
was fraotured.
An inquest was held on May

death was returned. Marrone had
worked as a pluggerman for fourteen months, and had been employed at the Hidden Creek Mine for a
total period of two years. He was
42 years of age and leaves a wife
and two sons in Italy. He was of
a bright, and cheery disposition

morning. The Rev. Father Murie
of the Catholic Church.officiated.

and respect in which they have always held their departing chief,
C. O. Fricker, the employees of the
various departments of the Concentrator presented him with a handsome wardrobe trunk.

gratitude for their good wishes so
sincerely expressed.

From all standpoints the annual
Dance of the Loyal Order of Moose

an excellent attendance. Harry

the-minute music, the floor was in
excellent shape and the supper was
most enjoyable. The function was
up to the usual high standard of
this popular Order, and the good
time provided was greatly appreciated.

Mechanics Win  From
Rivetters Before
Big Crowd
On Friday, the 11th. an ex-Prince
Rupert team took the measure of
the Foundry, winning 35 to 20.
A large number of fans witnessed
this fast and clever game.
Continuing their winning streak
the ex-Rupertites all but wiped out
the boys from the downtown stores.
The city team looked good on paper
but were evidently in need of practice. They feel confident of being
able to do better next time.
Smarting under their recent defeat by the ex-Rupert boys, the
Foundry sought an easy mark on
Tuesday the 15th. in the City team,
only to suffer defeat by 19-15. The
Storemen uncovered their batting
eye and fielding ability.
Interest in the game played last
Wednesday between the Boiler
Shop and the Mechanics on a
challenge to the former was widespread, and a big crowd was on
hand to watch the proceedings.
An enthusiastic fan brought along
a train gong and a special trophy
cup, sounding the former when his
team was going good, and the latter as a prize for the winners.
The rivetters started strong and
kept the Mechanics well under for
a few minutes, though the latter
rallied towards the end they were
unable to catch up on the lead held
by the challengers. The final score
was 29-17 in favor of the noise

Mining Kept Industries
"Wheels Turning
Milling has been the salvation
of British Columbia's trade and
commerce since the (all of 1929,
when prices of commodities commenced to drop to record low levels
and the huge stream of international trade shrank to a mere rivulet.
During the darkest period of the
past four and a half years the large
mining companies of the province
carried on uninterruptedly, and in
the case of the Granby Company
the staff was not even reduced by a
single man. Since 1929 the people
of British Columbia have taken a
greater interest in mining, realizing
what a valuable asset it is. The
recent unprecedented sensational
rise in the price of gold has stimulated still further interest. This
metal is now being feverishly
sought for and is attracting a great
deal of publicity. New mines will
no doubt be continually created as
long as gold remains at present
prices. When present efforts are
successful in raising silver prices to
around an average stabilized price
of 55 cents an ounce, then prosperity will have returned again to
British Columbia. Silver at 55
cents will mean several extra thousand men employed, and thus a big
market will be created for all the
necessities of life produced by out
fanners, our sawmills, machinery
manufacturers and many others.
I. 0. D. E. Honor Mrs.
Fricker at Social
Meeting at the home of Mrs. C.
P. Ashmore on Thursday evening,
May 10th. the ladies of the Collison
of Kincolith Chapter, I. O. D. E.
did honor to their member, Mrs. C.
O. Fricker, who was to leave the
district shortly. A large number of
members attended .and an enjoyable
evening was spent.
An important feature of the evening was a presentation to Mrs.
Fricker of a jewel case, the gift of]
her fellow members as a token of
esteem and affection. In making
the presentation Mrs. J. W, Lang,
Regent of the Chapter, spoke with
feeling of the splendid work done
by Mrs. Fricker for the Order, during the years of her membership.
Her loss would be keenly felt not
only by the members ot the Order,
but by everyone with whom she had
been associated.
Mrs. Fricker voiced her regret at
having to leave her many friends,
md said the memory of the happy
times which she had spent among
her fellow-workers in the Chapter,
would always be treasured.
After a delightful supper had
been sewed, the house was invaded
unexpectedly by the members of the
Canadian Legion, led by the Legion Band  and  escorting in  their

Price Rise of Silver
Is Disappointing
The task of raising silver prices
to between 50 and 60 cents an
ounce—which means so much to
Alice Arm—still seems a long way
from being completed. Press reports from the United States state
that price raising is being regarded
favorably in high government quarters there. But the rest of the
world seem very apathetic. Eventually, no doubt, an international
agreement will be arranged so that
bi-metallism will be universally
adopted, but at present it must be
admitted that progress is painfully
slow. If the United States alone
adopted some form of bi-metallism
it would be problematical what
effect such an act would have upon
Canadian silver prices. The price
of Canadian silver would no doubt
rise, but would it rise high enough
to cause the development and operation of our large low grade ore
long evenings, have created that
natural longing in everyone in
Anyox for the fresh air and sunshine and great.open spaces. The
latter is available only to those
fortunate enough to possess a
launch, but the open air and sport
is available for everyone. Spring
fever has already affected the athletes, and a start has been made in
many lines of sport. Thanks to
the untiring efforts of the Anyox
Community League, sports of all
kinds are available for everyone,
from the elderly persons who wish
to limber up stiff joints to the lusty
efferescent school youngsters.
Take your pick, "A wide range to
choose from," as the shoe store
clerk would say.
Those who have never been  sick
rarely appreciate good health.
midst   Comrade   C.   O.   Fricker.
Seats were found for the visitors,
and on  insistent  demands  by  the
ladies, the program  of  music  and
singing which had been gone
through by the Legion members at
their smoker was repeated, to the
great enjoyment of their fair compatriots. At the close the honored
guests of the evening, Mr. and Mrs.
Fricker, together with Mrs. Ashmore, the hostess, were placed in
the centre of the room while all
present joined hands and sang:
"For they are Jolly Good Fellows,"
and "Auld Lang Syne."

Where Four Centuries Meet
Uniting the sixteenth and twentieth centuries as typified in the lower left hand and the upper right hand cornen
