Anyox Elks Entertain
With Vaudeville and
Minstrel Show
On Friday evening, March 28tli.
the Reoreation Hall was filled to
capacity, when the local Lodge of
the B. P. 0. Elks demonstrated
their ability to entertain the public with their recently acquired
Vaudeville and Negro Minstrel
Troupe.
The orchestra, under the capable
leadership of Mr. S. Steele, who
also played the trombone, consisted
of J. Austin, piano: G. Leslie and
S. Armstrong, violins; P. Stiven-
ard, cornet, and E. J. Waterman,
traps, excelled themselves through
out tho evening.
Mi*. Ed. Oraggs, "a la. George
Formby," entertained with some
up-to date comic song hits,
The Misses Kathleen and Irene
Bruggy, of Alice Arm. delighted
the audience with a butterfly dance
and later, Miss Kathleen Bruggy
gave another brilliant exhibition of
dancing with a Chinese dance.
The little dancers wore costumes to
harmonize with the dances, which
were extremely pretty. They re-
. aeiyed rounds of applause and
eiicotCi, from an appreciable audience. Boi'1 dances were executed
^flawlessly and were charming to
fawatch. They were accompanied
at the piano by Miss Virginia Rie!,
and Mr. C. Hutchinson, clarinet;
both of Alice Arm.
Bob Watson and Bud Sheen, as
"Mr. Gallagher" and "Mr. Shean"
distinguished themselves as comedian artists of a high standard,
bringing forth shouts of laughter
and well deserved applause from
the audience.
Cy. Greenwell and Vic Cruiok-
shank, in "Mart" aud "Pep" made
merry for the audience, with their
airy patter, full of wit and humor.
With Mr. Cruickshank as "Pep"
he carried the name well througout
the entire act and not a serious face
could possibly exist in the presence
of such a versatile entertainer.
Disappointment was registered
on the faces of the audience when
it was announced that the Statue
Dance to be given by Miss Bonnie
Chapman and the Misses Moffatt,
was cancelled owing to Miss Jean
Moffatt's illness.
The Minstrel Troupe, comprising
twelve black-face entertainers, and
Mr. B. M. Buck, as Marster Johnson, who aoted as interlocker, was
a special added attraction, featuring popular songs and southern
melodies, mingled with witty sayings whioh reoeived loud applause.
The soloists were: A. S. Nickerson, A. P. Williams, E. Craggs, B.
Sheen, R. Watson, E. J. Waterman and F. Heggarty.
Messrs, Niokerson and Craggs
are to be congratulated on their
success as managers.

The Lying
Newspaper
A speaker the other day advised
his audience not to believe what it
read in newspaper about something
that was going on, because the
papers probably were not telling
the truth.
This kind of propaganda is going
on all the time, more every year, it
would seem.
Newspapers make mistakes in
printing the news. A very few
wilfully print what they know to
be false, but we venture this statement, which unfortunately cannot
be proven, that there is a higher
percentage of truth in the statements of facts in reputable newspapers than in any other statements
made, number and time for verification taken into consideration.
This same speaker who denounced what he found in one
column of a newspaper, probably
turns for support to another column.
In other words, what he finds in
a newspaper which meets his
personal approval, he believes, and
what does not meet his personal
approval he condemns as a lie.
If individuals would use the
same care in verifying their statements that reputable newspapers
do, there'd be a whole lot less idle
gossip going the rounds.—The
Grandview Herald.

The Engineer mine at Atlin will

ipoaei areas not exceeding 840 aores

GRAZING
Under the Grazing Aot the Prov-

!and the range administered under a
1 Grazing Commissioner. Annual
grazing permits are Issued based on
numbers ranged, priority being given
to established owners. Stock-owners
may form associations for range
management Free, or partially free,
pormlti are available for settlers,
campers and travellers, up to ten
head.
The Copper
Market
The situation is much better
than it might appear. Consumption is at highest rate in history of
the industry, with everything
pointing to world consumption of
3,250,000,000 pounds of copper in
1924, or say approximately 20 per
cent higher than in 1923. American consumption promises to stay
fully as high as in 1923, when it
averaged 125,000,000 pounds a
month, and European consumption
should increase notably as result of
improving situation in Germany
and the general, change for the
better in world affairs as a whole.
Indications are that price of
copper definitely turned the corner
last month, so that in 1924 copper
will probably stage a strong recovery without the setback that,
followed the runaway market of
last year which carried price of
copper to 17-_ cents in the spring,
only to drop to 12i by fall. It was
this spectacular rise in price that
deceived Anaconda and Inspiration
into going upon a dividend basis
prematurely.
A banker who has been buying
good copper shares remarked that
electrical development over the
next ten years would be record-
breaking and there would be a
corresponding increase in copper
Consumption.
"Many large mines,'' said he,
"have reached their limit in production. Others can make little
if anything on 13-cent oopper.
Under these conditions there is a
lot of truth in forecasts of higher
prices,
"Consumption, which is at a
new high record, continues to equal
production, which is also larger
than ever before. I do not understand why copper producers have
been selling their product around
13 cents a pound when they could
just as easily obtain 15 cents."
Palladium Ore for East
The Elsinore, Captain J. W.
Brisbois arrived this week in
Prince Rupert with 622 sacks of
palladium ore. The shipment represents 60,350 pounds, and carries
gold, silver, palladium and copper.
The ore was mined in Alaska, and
is destined for the Irvington Smelter, iu New Jersey.
Prince Rupert experienced a fall
of six inches of snow last week, the
|irst snowfall in the fishing town
this year. Alice Arm and Anyox
also experienced a flurry of the
beautiful, but it did not pay us an
extended visit, departing almost as
quickly as it came.
In August, 1918, he went to Murmansk with the North Russian
Expeditionary Force, and for his
services there he was awarded the
O.B.E. He returned to B.C. on
leave in July, 1919, and then resigned his commission to settle here.

Anyox Safety^First
Engineer Receives New
Appointment
The Vancouver Daily Province,
in a recent issue, contained a photograph of Capt. 8. P. C. Sweeney,
who until recently was safety-first
engineer for the Granby Co. at
Anyox.
The photograph is accompanied
by a lengthy news item, stating
that Capt. Sweeney has been appointed safety-first engineer for
the Shipping Federation of British
Columbia, at Vancouver.
In commenting on the appointment, the Province says: "Captain
Sweeney is a native son, having
been born in Vancouver in 1890.
He* was educated at Haileybury
College in England and the Royal
Military College, Kingston, Ont.,
of whioh he was B.S.M., passing
out with highest honors, the Governor-General's Gold Medal and
the Sword of Honor, which entitled him to the one commission available in the Royal Engineers.
With them Captain Sweeney
landed at Zeebrugge on October 5,
1914. He was wounded at the
first battle of Ypres, and again in
1917, while commanding the field
company crossing the Somme. He
was twice mentioned in despatches.

Anyox Notes
Continued from page 1,
Minstrel Troupe on Friday last
week, delighted his audience with
"Wang Wang Blues."
Mr. Williams, who is a tonsorial
artist with Mr. P. Stringham, has,
we understand, been offered a contract with the Victor Co. for an
appreciable sum.
There is but little doubt that ere
long we will be able to enjoy hearing Mr. Williams on our gramophone at home.
Dan cupid seems to be the most
active person in the neighbourhood
lately. Continually on the alert he
is forever finding someone to fall
victim from the thrust of his
arrow. Recently he has been directing his line of fire toward the
general offioe, and now he seem* to
be taking a keen interest in the
General Store, also keeping his
weather eye in the direction of the
Hospital, Dan will have to replenish his stock of arrows, at the rate
he has been going lately.
Moose Members of Alice
Arm Hold Meeting
A meeting of the local members
of the Loyal Order of Moose,

a visit of the Anyox members. It
is proposed that this visit will be
made on April 27th, and the day
concluded with a musical evening.
The Moose orchestra consisting
six pieces will be among the visitors and a splendid time is assured.
Details of the programme will be
given at a later date.
Dance at Alice Arm
A very enjoyable dance was held
on Wednesday evening, the occasion being the opening of Mr.
George Beaudin's; new store on
First Street.
A large crowd attended, and
dancing was indulged in until midnight, when dainty refreshments
were served by Mrs. J. Vale.
The orchestra consisting of
Messrs. Chas. Hutchinson, clarinet;
L. Johnston, accordian; and J.
Fiva, guitar; provided excellent
music, and left nothing to be desired. Mr. George Bruggy acting as
Master of Ceremonies, handled the
affair most capably.
