Mr. and Mrs. Fricker
Leaving Anyox For
Rhodesia
Two most worthy citizens will
be lost to Anyox and distriot on
Monday next, when Mr. and Mrs.
C. 0. Fricker leave for Northern
Rhodesia, where Mr. Fricker will
take up a position with the Rhokana Corporation. Mr. and Mrs
Frioker will make the journey via
England, leaving Montreal on
June 1st. Their plaoe of residence
in Rhodesia will be N'Kana.
Coining to Anyox eleven years
ago, Mr. Fricker worked as operator in the mill, then as mil! metallurgist. He afterwards became
Assistant Superintendent and in
the spring of 1929 he succeeded
Mr. Maxwell as superintendent of
that important unit of tho plant.
A charter member fjf the Anyox
Branch, Canadian Legion. Mr.
Fricker was a valned and energetic
worker in that body, holding the
office of president for three years.
He was actively associated with
the Anyox Golf Club since its inception. Mts. Fricker will also be
greatly missed, as she was a valued
member of several local organizations. She is a member of the
Collison of Kincolith Chapter,
I. 0. U. E., and has held office of
one kind or another during her
membership, being Regent for two
years. Her untiring work among
the many activities of this patriotic
Order will not soon be forgotten.
She was always ready to do her
part in any patriotic or charitable
work in the distriot. Mrs. Fricker
is an ardent golfer and a valued
member of the Anyox Golf Club.
Piano & Dance Recital
On June 1st.
Parents and friends of the pupils
of Miss Florence Kelley (dancing)
and Mrs. Webber (piano) are looking forward with pleasure to the
joint recital to be given in the Recreation Hall on June 1st. This
event will demonstrate the progress
that has been made in a comparatively short time by pupils of both
these teachers.
During the eight months of her residence here Miss Kelley has done
good work in teaching dancing to a
large number of pupils, while Mrs.
Webber's ability as a teacher of the
piano is well known. Some of the
pupils who will take part in this
recital, have been taking lessons
for only two months. The evening
promises to be interesting to many
people and a large attendance is
assured.
MOUNTAIN   AND VALLEY

Arm, showing Haystack mountain in the distance.   The railway can be seen on the left.
Many Hard Hit With
Softball Sport
Softball owes its popularity to the
fact that it is easy to play and the
ball is easily handled. It also provides as much fun as baseball. On
Thursday, May 3rd. a game was
played between the Mine and the
Beach, the former winning by 13
toll. Several of the Beach players, however, were beginners at the
game, and threaten to lam the ball
into the glory hole next time they
meet the miners.
A game was also played on Sunday the 6th. between the Foundry
and the Concentrator, the former
winning 9-8. The boys of the
Boiler Shop, who feel that they can
at least hit, have challenged the
Machine Shop to a game, with liquid
refreshments as the stake. Without waiting to gauge matters or
size up the situation, the machinists
promptly accepted, and the battle
will be staged on Wednesday evening, May 16th. Odds are even so
far.
DO YOU GARDEN?
According to the local seedsman
and gardening expert, there should
be some fine gardens in Anyox this
summer, judging'by the quantities
of seeds and plants being hopefully
put into the soil by local residents.
Optimism reigns supreme, and
here's hoping.
President's Team Wins Golf
Match
In the match between the President's and Vice-President's teams
on Sunday, May 6th. the former
won by 32 to 28. This was an
eighteeti-hole Medal Play match
and forty-two players took part.
Play commenced at 9 a.m. and finished at 8 p.m., with two games
unfinished on account of rain. The
event was interesting throughout,
A Men's Tournament will be
held tomorrow (May 13th.) This
will be match play against par,
over 18 holes. Full handicaps according to the revised list. Prizes
will be given to the winner and
runner-up.
Enjoyable Dance At
On Tuesday
Mine
From start to finish, the dance
held by the Mine Branch of the
A. C. L. in the Mine Hall on Tues>
day last was a great success. There
was a large crowd on hand, the
music by the Revellers was all that
could be desired, the floor was good
and the supper excellent. The
famous "Rhinelanders' Dance" was
featured and captured everyone.
The committee of the Mine Branch
of the League who handled this
function are to be congratulated,
They are providing most enjoyable
recreation at nominal cost.

to meet there all the Catholics of
Alice Arm.
Premier T. D. Pattullo recently
emphasized at Ottawa that the
British Columbia Government was
badly in need of funds. Judging
from the disreputable state of out-
local bridges, we heartily agree
with him. Every bridge in the
distriot is urgently in need of^re-
pairs, and if it is not done iu the
immediate future, we shall be in
possession of roads that are impassable. All bridges, including
the big suspension, need re-decking
but not even a plank is on hand
here to commence the work.

Softballers Work Hard To
Improve Grounds
Hidden Creek Ball Park, is the
ambitious title which has been
given to the Softball grounds on
the Flats. And such it will be. if
the efforts of twenty-five enthusiastic players can make it so. This
working party were busy as bees
on Monday and Wednesday evenings last week, levelling, filling in,
and improving generally the piece
of ground whioh has been set aside
for them. To see these boys doing
this voluntary work was an inspiring sight.
Two Softball Leagues Are
Proposed
As there are six or eight embryo
Softball teams at the Beach, and
four already in existence at the
Mine, it is possible that there will
be a softball league at each of these
places. The winners of each league
will then compete for the district
championship, for which a handsome trophy oup has been donated
by Messrs Lambie & Stone, Clothiers, of Priuce Rupert.

K. MOSS, Editor and*Publisher,
Holidays Are Necessary
Another winter lias been left
behind us, and we are on the
threshold of the good old summer
time. Everyone is hoping that the
coining summer will be full of sunshine with real hot weather, instead
of the wet cold summers of the two
previous years this district has experienced. Sunshine is vital to out-
good health. Unfortunately we do
not have as much as we wish.
When we do experience a sunny
spell of weather, we should, as
much as possible, enjoy it to the
full by getting outdoors. A few
days' or weeks' holiday are necessary to everyone who has worked
continuously throughout the year in
the mines, smelter or shops of
Anyox. Often the expense of travelling stops many from enjoying a
needed rest, but this may not deter
anyone in Anyox from a holiday,
for at a very small cost, and in two
hours, the town of Alice Arm can
be reached. Here the visitor will
find nature at her best. Everything
is green and pleasant to the eye,
and trout fishing, boating, hiking
or swimming can all be indulged in
and a complete rest can be obtained
at a very low price. Many former
visitors from Anyox have already
made plans to again spend their
holidays at Alice Arm this year, and
it is expected that many who have
nut yet visited this neighboring
beauty spot will do so this year.
Says Silver Should Be Left
Alone to Find Price Level
Silberling Reports
Were silver to be left entirely
alone-it is reasonably certain that
either a gradual recovery of business
and the general price level or an
inflation of prices produced by other
means would certainly elevate the
price of the metal. For many years
there has been a consistent correlation of the price of silver with the
average movement of commodity
prices. There is therefore no inherent reason for granting to silver
producers any special benefit such
as they are now loudly demanding.
The real reason for these demands
is to be found in the fact that various groups are exploiting silver to
accomplish objectives going far
beyond the recuperation of the mining industry or the alleged benefits
to the Orient. The silver movement must be judged from its general inflationary implications rather
than from the standpoint of benefit
to this or that producing or commercial interest.
Noranda Mines Sells All
Copper In Britain
Earnings of 70c. a share for the
first quarter of 1934, were announc
ed by.James Y. Murdock, president
of Noranda Mines Limited, when
he addressed the annual meeting.
This estimate, prepared from unaudited figures, represents a rate of
approximately $2.80 a share, as
compared with $2.15 a share net
profit reported for 1933.
"The principal market for Canadian copper," said Mr. Murdock,
is the United Kingdom, and from a
Canadian point of view this market
has been materially affected by increased production of copper from
Rhodesia, the commencement of refining in England of a portion of
such copper, and increased production and shipment to this market of copper by South America
producers.
Copper produced by smelters and
refiners enters the United Kingdom
free of duty, but copper rods produced in the Empire enjoy a preference of 10 per cent. Since the Imperial Conference in Ottawa in 1931
there has been a marked preference
on the part of the United Kingdom
buyer for Empire produced copper.
Canadian copper is all electrically
refined and has to meet the competition of fire refined copper made
from Rhodesian and South Ameri-.
can copper, as well as electrolytic
copper from all parts of the world.
Your company met all this competition and successfully marketed all
of the 1933 production at a satisfactory price."
Liquor Sales Increase In
British Columbia
Will Develop Independence Mine at Stewart
S. P. Fitzgerald, president of Independence Gold Mining Co. Ltd.,
announces that Brown-Draper Co.
of Seattle has undertaken the financing of the company under terms
w-kich will involve no change in the
capital structure. The property
consists of 25 claims 11 miles up
Bear River Valley from Stewart on
the west side of the river, about 8
miles south and west of George
Copper Gold Mine and half a mile
north of the Dalhousie property.
Values are in gold, silver, lead, zinc
and copper. Work has been confined principally to one of 12 veins
disclosed on the property.
Present plans call for running a
short distance ahead in the lower
tunnel, then running a crosscut to
the vein to open up the downward
continuation of a good grade of ore
found in the tunnel 200 feet above.
By drifting east and west and sinking on the vein, it is hoped to prove
up a large body of commercial ore.
Over $200,000 has been previous
ly expended on the property,

PIONEER MESS
CAFE
Liquor revenues in British Columbia showed an unexpected gain of
twenty-five per cent, both in January and February and forty per cent,
in March as compared with the corresponding figures a year ago.
Liquor estimates for the fiscal
year commencing April 1 had been
placed at $300,000 less than in the
same period last year, but indications now are that they will be up
instead of down.
Increasing purchasing power
within the province is believed responsible for the changed trend.

GOLD   MINING  IN
BRITISH   COLUMBIA
Lode and placer gold mining have made remarkable strides
in the past three years.   Historic Cariboo and Bridge
River districts are now prominently in the public eye.
There are opportunities for profitable investment, and
about 200,000 square miles of unexplored mineral bearing
lands are open for prospecting.
British Columbia is the leading Canadian Province in
production of silver, lead and zinc.

Beauty and Banff, the heart of the famous Cana.
dian Rockies are Bynonymous and aa like attracts
like it is not surprising to find such a bevy of beauty
as is shown in the accompanying pictures, disporting itself in the beautiful swimming pools of the Canadian Pacific Railway's palatial Banff Springs Hotel.
There are two baths, one of naturally heated sulphur
water and the other of ordinary stream water, both
of which are extremely popular with the many
visitors to the renowned summer resort. Recreations
in infinite variety run the gamut of sports'from golf
ti- mountaineering. Real cowboys are on hand to take
trail-riders through the innumerable passes of the
historic mountains, while Stoney Indians and scarlet-
coated "Mounties" add yet another touch to the
already colorful scene. Banff is something that has
to be seen to be appreciated. Its devotees come
yearly from the four corners of the globe. There is
always something new; always something to do, and
when the long happy day is over, dancing to the smart
orchestras in the spacious btU  room of the hotel
forms a fitting prelude to a restful night in the health-
giving mountain atmosphere.    Yes, Banff is beauty
and beauty is Banff and the smiles on the faces of its
mermaids speak volumes for the happiness of this*
great playground.
Wild Animals Friendly on Banff-Windermere Highway
^INMAMON DEAR HEAR BANFF
"The Friendly Road," Iby David
Grayson, which Is well-known to
many lovers of nature, depicts Incidents and friendliness of people
along country roads and In the rural
districts. There is, however, a load
In the Canadian Rookies the friendliness of which la not due to mortals
as la Grayson's book, but to the
friendliness of animals. Animals
termed wild, but in this Instance a
word that cannot be applied to those
on the Banff-Windermere Highway.
a There is possibly no more beautiful road than this which row from
Banff to Lake Windermere, In the
Columbia River Valley. The distance
ot 104 miles is spectacular and the
scenes are constantly changing. The
views from the high passes looking
down into valleys, thousands of feet
below, tiny lakes surrounded by al-
60ZQ BEAR TRAFFIC COP
pine meadows, rivers crossed and re-
crossed, and glimpses ot cascades
tumbling down elopes from dizzy
heights are Intriguing and beautiful.
To this natural beauty is added
that of seeing the animals in their
natural haunts. Rocky Mountain
sheep are seen on the road along
Vermilion Lakes not far trom Banff.
They are sotame that often motors
have to slow down as they will persist, almost to the point ot danger,
ln standing ia the noddle ot the
highway.
Bozo, a black b&T, is a friend to
many motorists on the Banff-Windermere road. He eomes out on the
highway as if he Bad sole right to
It. He does not reseat these invaders in the least and really wishes to
show his friendliness. Sometimes he
has lunches handed to him and the
remarks of "nice old chap, fine old
fellow," please him tremendously,
and he will try to come even nearer.
Bozo no doubt bad many dreams
during the winter of summer tourists, and possibly has figured out to
true hear fashion just how to get
the most out of the tourist season.
Deer are seen, also, on this famous
highway, though not as often as
other animals. They are regular visitor* to Banff, and are frequently
seen on the streets of the Tillage.
There an hundreds of miles of
smooth motor roads through the
Canadian Rookies, and devotees of

Canada  May Double  Gold
Mines This Year
There is every likelihood that
Canada will double the number of
her producing gold mines during
the present year, according to information reaching tlie Industrial
and Natural Resources Department of tbe Canadian National
Railways. Whereas at the beginning of 1933 there were only 28
regularly pioducing gold mines in
Canada, this number has now risen
to 47 and by the end of the present
year it will have increased to 80 or
90. It is estimated that Canada's
gold production in 1934 will
amount to §115,000.000 as against
the total of §85.000,000 last year.
Canada's  Favorable  Trade
Balance Increases
Canada's visible trade balance
for the year ended March 31, 1934,
was favorable to the extent of
$151,903,000, compared with a
favorable balance for the fiscal year
1932-3 of $74,331,000. The improvement, therefore, in Canada's
favorable trade balance for the fiscal year 1933-4 compared with the
fiscal year 1932-3 was $77,572,000.
Canadian Exports To Britain
Shows Increase
An increase of $12,031,000 was
shown in Canadian exports to British Empire countries for the month
of March when the total was $29,-

<fMow is the time for all good
•^ fishermen to prepare for
that summer trip" is an appropriate slogan for disciples of Isaac
Walton these balmy spring days.
A successful fishing trip depends
largely upon the careful selection
of location, tackle and even associates, for many a party has been
ruined by the last-minute introduction of a "wet blanket" to an
otherwise congenial collection of
sportsmen.
One of the most interesting fishing streams in North America is
French River, Ontario, 215 miles
north of Toronto on the Canadian
Pacific Railway. This lordly river
is celebrated as the habitat of the
fighting muscalunge, one   of  the
Samest fish known;  huge Great
orthern pike, pickerel, an abund
ance of small-mouth and large-
mouth black bass and other finny
prizes. To accommodate sportsmen
and their families, a fine bungalow
camp—a collection of individual
cabins centering around a main
clubhouse—has been erected on a
cliff overlooking the river. Here
the fisherman and his family can
"rough it in comfort," far from
the cares and annoyances of a
work-a-day world.
That big "muskies" are plentiful at French River is proven by
the fact that one recent summer
a monster muskie weighing 65
pounds was taken in the North
Channel at the mouth of the
Wolseley River. Also, not long
ago a party of Ohio oportsmen
caught, besides their daily limit of
bail, pike and pickerel, no leu
than seventeen "muskies" ranging
from 10 to 38 tt lbs. In 1926 a "muskie" of 35 pounds weight, 50
inches long and 21 inches in girth
was taken in the main channel of
the French, one mile from the
bungalow camp.
The French River Bungalow
Camp will open June 16 and remain open until Sept. 15. Jack
Strathdee, its genial manager, is
an experienced outdoorsman whose
chief delight is coaching the uninitiated in the art of luring the
fish. French River also has a fine
9-hole golf course so that devotees
of the royal and ancient game who
are also fond of fishing need not
entirely forego the former sport
in favor of the latter.
