Anyox Enthusiastically
Celebrates Dominion
Dominion Day opened with
glorious sunshine for the celebrations at Anyox. Starting on
schedule at. 9.30 a.m. the Parade
moved forward led by Jimmio
Varnes' Band, next followed the
Boy Soouts, ahead of a nicely
decorated Hoat entered by the
Granby Stores depicting the industries of B.C. A prairie schooner followed by a oovered wagon
came next. I.Iany original floats
were entered by the children and
the judging became a difficult task.
Besides the excellent floats of the
prize winners there were many
prettily decorated entries, notably
a deuorated harp, a rickshaw with
two daintily dressed children,
Barnums Cirous from which the
wild animal (a cat) escaped much
to the dismay of the entrant.
Many budding orators took part
in tlie oratorical contest. The Boy
Scouts gave a very efficient display
,of First Aid.
A large crowd witnessed the
sports in the afternoon in spite of
tlie change in the weather which
became cloudy and showery. The
events were carried through with
ease, but in some events tlie lack
of entries was somewhat disappointing.
The Children's events were very
popular and the youngsters had
some splendid races and all had
| prizes.
Tlie boys' and girls' and ladies'
races were all good. The new
marathon course, a longer and
more difficult one than last year's
created quite a lot of interest,
Jaaka Havista had no difficulty in
winning this race, finishing at the
ball ground a lap ahead of H.
The 100 yards dash was run in
two heats, Stan. Ellison, C. J.
Docherty, Fred Williams and
Frank Dodsworth getting into the
final, which Stan Ellison and Fred
« Willianis tied. From the' run off
Stan Ellison won by nearly two
yards in 10.5 sees,
The relay raoe attraoted three
teams and was easily won by the
Store and Office quartet.
The amusing nail driving contest was a revelation of the ability
of the fair sex to drive spikes. Miss
K. Eve won the first prize and
Miss Salo camo seoond in the final
Art. Dwyer won the high jump
and Archie McDougall came second.
In the broad jump Archie McDougall oovered 19ft. 2ins. in fine
style to win first prize. Jack Ion
made 18ft. for second.
The rain came down towards the
end of the sports and rather spoiled
the afternoon.
Great oredit is due to the Anyox
Community League for tlie splendid day's entertainment.

Bishop G. A. Rix Visits
Alice Arm
Alice Arm received a visit on
Sunday from the Rt. Rev. G. A.
Rix, Bishop of the Diocese. He
was accompanied by Rev. W. B.
Jennings and they arrived on the
Anglican Church Mission launch
Northern Cross during the early
afternoon, The Bishop held a
Confirmation Service at Anyox during the morning.
At the Evening Service at Alice
Arm, Bishop Rix consecrated the
new Church, and held a Confirmation Service in addition to the regular service. Four candidates were
received into the Church at the
Confirmation Service. They were:
the Misses Lois and Florence
Studdy, Miss Alma Evindsen and
Miss Lillian Moss.
The pretty little Church was filled
to capacity before the service commenced, and the beauty and
fragrance of the flowers that decorated the Church added to the
enjoyment of the service.
Bishop Rix spoke highly of the
work started by Canon Rushbrook,
and now so ably carried on by his
successor, Rev. W. B. Jennings,
who was assisted in his work by
Mrs. Jennings.
He also praised the efforts of the
people Which enabled them to have
such a fine building in which to
worship God.
Celts and Smelter Draw
In League Game
There is always keen rivalry
betwen these two teams, although
in daily life most of the players and
supporters on both sides are inseparably associated. Miserable
weather conditions spoiled the game
on Thursday the 25th. There was
a changeable wind and a downpour
of rain, the ball refused to be controlled. Despite this is was a good
Both sides were unlucky in being
unable to take full advantage of
good openings, the shooting being
high and wide. Smelter had a
shade the better argument. George
Allen for the Celts and Stan Ellison
fqr the Smelter cut another notch
apiece in their guns, making the
score even.
Several instances occurred where
the players were apt to take the
man instead of the ball, and on one
occasion the dangerous play of one
of the players was absolutely unwarranted and marred the game.
Heavy charging and fouling is uncalled for, and especially on the
Anyox Ball Ground, which by its
very nature is not suitable for rough
and tumble work. All players
should have continually in mind
that football is only a game after
all and should before them the
slogan: "Safe Play All The Time."
Then we will have football only, a
feeling of real good fellowship
among the players and much more
enjoyment for the spectators.
Jimmy Donaldson returned on
Monday from an enjoyable trip to
the Old Country.
Dancing Students Give
Excellent Performance
On Friday, the 26th, the Becreation Hall was almost filled with
children and their parents and
friends to watch the dancing exhibition given by the pupils who
have been reoeivuig the expert
tuition of Mrs. V. S, McRae during
the past few months. The various
dances were oarried out exquisitely
and enthusiastically by the pupils.
A quartet of tiny tots, daintily
dressed, opened the program with
scarcely any trace of shyness, their
efforts delighting everybody. . Following this a recitation-and dance:
"How Do You Do?" was neatly
given. The next item showed the
danoing school going through
their exercises. A very pretty
scarf dance was given and revealed
plenty of clever dancing. Each
item seemed to improve as the
programme advauoed. The Dutch
dance was excellent, and the tap
dancing proved that we do not
have to go out of Anyox for talent.
The Russian dance was well
applauded, and a solo dance by one
of the pupils was faultless. Following a snappy Spanish dance the
final item "Choo Choo" was given
by the younger pupils, and received
well-merited applause.
To put on such a varied programme must have involved considerable time and patience on the
part of the teacher, frequent practices by the pupils, aud much
expert dress-making by either the
parents or someone well skilled
with the needle. Much credit is
due to all who in any way took
Miss Annie McLachlan as pianist
ably accompanied the dancers. No
doubt as a1 result of this very
excellent exhibition the classes
will resume the coming season,
and an even better performance
can be anticipated.

The Annual   Report   of   the
Minister   of  Mines has   recently
been distributed throughout   the
province.   As in former years, it
gives a mass of information, and
provides   interesting   reading   for
those engaged in the mining industry.   Although a tremendous decline in metal prices took place   in
1930 the Report shows that even
greater tonnages of silver, lead and
zinc.   This increase plainly shows
that the big companies do not   expect the present low prices to prevail much longer.   It also shows
that the companies mining these
metals   can   successfully compete
with the world in low cost production.   A review of the Annual
Report shows that the mining industry  weathered the world depression last year better than any
industry in the province.     It is
true that quite a number of small
producing   mines   closed   down.
Also the big plant of the  Granby
Co. at Copper Mountain, and a
number of properties throughout
the province that were in the de
velopment stage.   It also shows,
however, that several   new mines
have been brought to the   production stage and others   increased
their output.   The report contains
a detailed report by every resident
mining engineer of   his   district.
Chief of these is the very  exhaustive report of Dr. J. T.  Mandy,
resident   engineer of the North-
Western district.     Dr. Mandy's
report covers a large number of
mines and prospects.    In his description of the Alice Arm district
he has mentioned more properties
his year, than has been done for a
long time.   He voices the opinion
that in   the   Alice Arm district
there are known ore bodies of
potential commercial value,   and
given proper   smelting    facilities,
Alice Arm would play an important role in mining affairs.
Pioneer Gold Produces
About $2000 a Day
Production of Pioneer Gold
Mines, with a property in Bridge
River district, is about $2000 a day
this month compared with $1,800 a
day during May. The mill is running to full capacity of 100 tons a
day, and last week a gold brick
came from the mine valued at
819,000. This represented one
week's run.
The average value of ore going
through the mill is from $15 to $18
per ton, but on the 8th level some
$S0 has been encountered. The
vein which is from 2 to 6 feet wide
has been explored for 1650 feet.
Development is being pushed
with a view to increasing the capacity of the mill to 300 tons as soon
as the 3-compartment shaft is completed to the 2,000 foot level.

C. N. Railway Earnings Drop
Montreal—Gross earnings of the
Canadian National Railways for
the week ended June 14, 1931,
were $3,560,252, as compared with
$4,577,216 for the same period in
1930, decrease of $1,016,964.
British Columbia with its hills
and mountains is bv no means the
heaviest user of gasoline per car
among the provinces of Canada.
That distinction belongs to Alberta
where each car used 459 gallons
last year as against 374 in B. C.
Alberta therefore has first place
both in production and consumption, since no other part of Canada
produces as much oil as the Turner
Valley wells. Average consumption in Ontario, Quebec and Nova
Scotia exceeds British Columbia,
though all other provinces are all
below. Manitoba uses only 316
gallons per car in a year.

been shipped if proper selection had
been made. As it is the shipments
show a considerable increase.
