Rangers Win From Mine
In First League Foot
Ball Game
A good crowd attended the opening
game of the Anyox Football League
played between the Rangers and
Mine on Wednesday evening last,
and resulting in a win for the former 3-1. It was a good clean game,
well handled by referee J. Donaldson, and augers well for the future.
The teams were well matched, each
having several new players of promise.
The Beach were unfortunate in
losing the services of Father Hammond, who strained a muscle right
at the start of the game and had to
retire. First blood was drawn by
the Beach, who drew a penalty early
in the game, Freddy Williams taking the kick. The next notch came
off T. Buchanan from close in,
while Ferguson made it three shortly afterwards.
After the breather, the Mine
pressed closely, and Galbraith, in
goal for the Rangers, had several
close calls, a hot shot by Home
finally finding the net. The hillmen
were unlucky in failing to convert a
penalty, the ball just passing over
the bar. Both goalies played an
excellent game, being called upon
to clear several shots that seemed
to be certainties.
The class of football indicates an
interesting season, and an increased
attendance as the series advance.
The teams: Colts: Hughes; T.
Calderoni, Dixon; Habecost, Sim-
mons, Schafer; Graney, Dyer,
Home, Davies, Wilkinson.
Rangers; Galbraith; Ion, F. Calderoni; Williams, Hamilton, Dodsworth; Buchanan, Hammond,
Ferguson, Ellison, Allan.
Showers Spoil Anyox Empire
Day Sports
There was every indication of
sunshine in Anyox, on Wednesday
morning last, when followers of
various sports were all set for a
day's real enjoyment. Towards
noon, however, cloudy weather
prevailed, with occasional showers,
putting a damper on such games
as tennis.
At the A. C. L. Courts an American
Doubles' Tournament was started.
Several enthusiasts were out bright
and early, induced by the sunshine,
and a good start was made, but the
weather stopped the play just before
noon and the day was thus spoiled
for the twenty-two tennis players,
who were taking part in the tournament.

Rev. Jennings Honored
On Eve of Departure
After the regular servioe on Sunday morning last, the members of
the Confirmation Class at the An-
glioan Churoh, Anyox, presented
Mr. Jennings with a handsome
pipe and a parcel of tobacco, as a
token of their esteem. In replying
Mr. Jennings stated that it was a
souvenir which he would always
prize.
A pleasing little ceremony took
place after the evening servioe on
Sunday last, when the members of
the Women's Auxiliary handed to
Mr. Jennings, on behalf of his baby
daughter, a silver spoon and fork
set. The presentation took place
during a quiet gathering in the
Parish Hall, at which sandwiches
and tea were served. Mr. F. Graham was the spokesman, and Mr.
Jennings, in his reply, expressed
his regret at the severance of his
friendship with the parishoners of
the church. A few hymns were
sung at the close, with Mrs. Kent
at the piano.

With loyality and enthusiasm
Empire Day was fittingly celebrated
at Alice Arm on Wednesday. A
full programme of sports and a
baseball game were held in the
afternoon, and a big dance in the
evening terminated the day's celebration.
Brilliant sunshine prevailed during the early morning and hopes
ran high for a perfect day, but
shortly before noon the clouds grew
thick and although a few drops of
rain occasionally fell it did not in
the least interfere with the day's
programme.
There was a large field of contestants in all items of the field
sports and some close finishes were
witnessed. Following is a list of
the prize winners:
Girls under 8 years, 1 Margaret

At the termination of the field
sports the big ball game was commenced, when the Wildcats and
Tigers battled for supremacy in a
game crammed full with excitement
from start to finish that gave the
fans a thrill. Several young ladies
accepted the invitation to participate in the game and their ability
to wield the bat and sprint to the
bases evoked much applause.
The teams were: Wildcats, Gus
Anderson, Ted Kergin, Gunn Fiva,
A. D. Yorke, J. Trinder, Leah
Kergin, Joan Trinder, Alma Evindsen. Tigers: T. W. Falconer,
Erling Svarvars, John Studdy, Inga

in T. W. Falconer's hall, attracted
a large number of people. Dancing
commenced shortly after 9 p.m.
and was carried on into the small
hours of Thursday morning.
Everyone was in a happy mood
and thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
The music was supplied by several
Anglican Church Holds

Gratifying success attended the
Annual Spring Bazaar of the Anglican Church, which was held in
the Parish Hall on Tuesday the
23rd. A large number of people
attended and gave their support,
aud a very happy spirit prevailed

whioh there was much competition.
Empire Day Dance Is Well
Attended
Up to the high standard of previous years, was the Annual Empire Day Dance, held by the
Oddfellows in the Gymnasium on
Wednesday last. There was a
good atteudance, and an evening
of keen enjoyment was recorded.
The hall was bright with patriotic
colors and evergreens, aud presented a scene of gaiety.        '
Tuneful and snappy musio was
supplied by the Merrymakers' Orohestra, and a delightful supper
was served. The Oddfellows are
to be congratulated on the success
of this historic annual event.
John Studdy Created Junior
Fire Warden
An interesting ceremony was
conducted at the Alice Arm School
this week when John Studdy, junr.
was created a Junior Fire Warden
by Mr. J. Walter-Hughes who
presented him with his badge of
office.
The junior fire warden movement
is sponsored by the Canadian Forestry Association and its members
are located in every town throughout Canada. Their duties are to
stop small forest fires, and if too
large to report them to the proper
authorities, also to instil into other
children the necessity of keeping
our forests green, by being careful
with fire when in the woods.
musicians; the ladies supplied the
refreshments, and the use of the
hall was donated by T. W. Falconer, so that no admission fee was
necessary.
W. J. Asselstine Seeks
Liberal Nomination
For Atlin
W. J. Asselstine, mill superintendent at the Premier Mine was a
recent visitor to Anyox. On his
return to Stewart, while stopping
at Prince Rupert, he announced
that he would allow his name to go
before the Liberal convention to be
held shortly for the purpose of electing a liberal candidate for the forthcoming election. It is expected the
convention will be held early in
June, and probably at Anyox. Mr.
Asselstine comes out as a straight
Liberal and is asking the endorsement of the convention as such.
He is well known in the whole
southern portion of the Atlin constituency as an ardent supporter of
the Liberal cause, and during the
last Federal general election he
spoke in support of Mr. Olaf Hanson M. P. at both Alice Arm and
Anyox.
Mr. Asselstine is in favor of operating mining properties in the district that have not enough tonnage
to attract the big operators, and
thinks that many could be developed along the lines of modern
trends in mineralogy. These properties cannot stand the heavy overhead of a large operation but could
be made to pay well if developed
along modern lines. To encourage
this would be one of his endeavors
if he represented the mining district.
These operations would not feature
in world production but would assist
in the progress of the community.
Mrs. D. Mclntominey left on
Monday for a visit to Vancouver,
where she will recuperate from a
recent illness.

In our news columns this week
we have published a report of the
question asked by Mr. Olaf Hanson, member for Skeena in the
House of Commons, in connection
with the curtailment of mail service between Alice Arm and
Anyox. Since notices were posted
at Alice Arm and Anyox late in
February calling for tenders to
carry one mail a week, commencing April 1 st. the Herald has done
everything possible to right the
wrong that was about to be inflicted on the district. We have written to the Postal authorities at
Vancouver and Ottawa, also Mr.
Olaf Hanson, member for Skeena,
and Capt. George Black, Speaker
of the House and member for the
Yukon. We explained fully to all
the inconvenience one mail a week
would cause, and stated that as
the nearest Hospital, Doctor, Government Agent, Police Officer,
Bank, Dentist, Optometrist, etc.
are located in Anyox that one
mail a week was almost worthless,
as over a week would elapse
before a reply could be received
from a letter, and often an answer
was required much more quickly.
We also explained that it would
mean the extinction of The Herald,
which during the past twelve
years had every week sent the
majority of its copies to Anyox.
Mr. Hanson and Capt. Black have
both made efforts to retain the
present schedule, especially the
former, and the Postal authorities
have promised that no curtailment
will be made until the matter has
been investigated. While we have
not been definitely promised that
two mails per week will be permanently established, as is at present in force, we believe that our
efforts have not been in vain, and
that the Postal authorities, now
that the situation has been made
clear to them and the injustice of a
curtailment brought to their notice,
that the policy of two mails a week
will be carried on indefinitely.
Conditions Brightening
In British Columbia
Gold Mining Makes P. G. E.
Railway Pay Its Way
Due to the gold mining activities
in the Bridge River and in the
Cariboo, the Pacific Great Eastern
Railway enjoyed a net operating
profit for the month of March of
$879,32, which is the first time a
monthly operating profit has been
gained in any month of the first
six months of the year since it
commenced to haul freight and
passengers.
Encouragement through the gra
dual opening up of additional work
fresh capital for B. C. gold fields
and recognition by Ottawa of at
least two of the major points desired
by B. C. in connection with relief
administration featured the news of
the week. Half of the encouragement springs from slowly improving world conditions.
On Vancouver Island the return
of men to logging camps and sawmills has been very marked, and is
reviving all the incidental trade that
rests upon lumbering operations.
Throughout the province, also, there
has been a falling off of the numbers!
on relief, except in the cities where
the relief registers appear to be in a
more static condition. Coast ports
all report better business for April,
notably so in the case of New
Westminster.
B. C. Expects a Record
Gold Production
Government officials report that
placer and lode gold recoveries in
British Columbia this year will
eclipse even the high total of $4,-
500,000 of last year by a considerable margin. More .intelligent
mining is being projected now than
at any other period in the province's
history for several decades. With
18,000 holding miners' certificates,
and a large army of prospectors in
the field, the year is expected to
produce important results, and may
lead to the opening up of large new
produceis. It was gold that first
drew attention to British Columbia,
in 1858, and history may repeat itself in this respect. Meanwhile the
search for the precious metal is
stimulating employment, and reducing unemployment rolls in a
concrete fashion. Some of the
mines already producing give signs
of rivalling the best in Canada as
time goes on, and recognition of
this fact is becoming more apparent with the investing public. Since
1858, B. C. has produced $84,000,.
000 in placer gold, and $150,000,000
in lode gold, in officially recorded
outputs. Many believe its potentialities in this direction have hardly
been scratched.
Silver Production In Foreign
Countries
Silver production in Mexico during January rose to 7,159,000
ounces from the preceding month's
total of 4,221,000 ounces. The
United States output advanced to
1,960,000 ounces as compared with
1,627,000 ounces iu December.
Australia produced 603,000 ounces
in January; Burma, 521,000 ounces
and Peru, 424,000 ounces.
The Herald is $2.00 a year.

pearls.

Eleven tons of concentrates from
the Dunwell Mine were recently
shipped on the steamer "Griffco"
for the Tacoma smelter. This is
the first shipment under the new
lease on the Dunwell.

Beauty and Banff, the heart of the famous Canadian Rockies are synonymous and as like attracts
like it is not surprising to And 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
to 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 Bmart
orchestras in the spacious btll   room of the hotel
iiiliiiiillKiiiiiiiir
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.
Breaking New Trails in the Rockies
Uvery year the Order of the Trail Riders of the
Canadian Rockies gathers together its devotees
who set out into the unknown, or the almost unknown, on mountain ponies from the starting point
at the Banff Springs Hotel or Chateau Lake Louise.
For those new to the game there is a trail ride of
a few days, covering, however, little travelled paths,
while for the expert there is a ride of three weeks
penetrating to the heart of the Rockies, and both
end in a Grand Pow-wow or campfire meeting where
songs are sung and the feeling of general jollity
is perpetuated. These Trail rides are held in August
when the weather is at its best and lovers of the outdoors gain an experience which, even if they never
.'epeat it, will furnish them with memories and
stories for a life-time. Every year new trails are
broken, the one last year being over Gibbon Pass,
named after the founder of the Order. The rides
attract travellers from every part of the continent
and from Europe, and some 1,600 of them are now
enrolled in the Order.
Lay-out shows riders passing through Gibbon
Pass, taking a rest at Shadow Lake with Mount Ball
in the background, and fording an arm of the Lake
of Haneing Glaciers.

Anyox Representative—Mr. P. Powell,
Phone 262 ALICE   AEM   AND  ANYOX   HERALD,   Saturday, May 27, 1933
Local Mail Service Is
Reviewed In House
Of Commons
THE PICTURES
Mr. Olaf Hanson, M. P. Asks
Question Regarding Proposed
Reduction
In the House of Commons on
May 12th. Mr. Olaf Hanson, member for Skeena, asked questions
regarding Post Office grievances in
his constituency, including the proposed reduction of mail service between Alice Arm and Anyox.
The following is quoted from
Hansard—the official report of Parliamentary proceedings—of the date
of May 12th. which was received at
the Herald Office this week, and it
shows that Mr. Hanson is fully
alive to his responsibilities as our
representative at Ottawa.
"Mr. Hanson (Skeena): I have a
complaint from Dease Lake and
Telegraph Creek post offices in
British Columbia. A notice has
been posted in these two post offices
that from now on the parcel post
rate will be 12 cents a pound. They
are the only two places in British
Columbia where that change has
been made. I have enquired as to
the reason. I realize it is probably
for the sake of economy, but I
would like to ask the Postmaster
General how much he anticipated
would be saved by depriving these
two post offices of that service. It
is 5 cents a pound in other post
offices in British Columbia, but it is
raised to a flat rate of 12 cents for
these two post offices. I have taken j
it up with the deputy minister but
he could not give me any other
answer than that it is done for the
sake of economy. I can see no
warrant for depriving those people
of that convenience for the few
dollars that may be saved; for 1
presume the mail has to go there
anyway, whether there are few parcels or many, and I cannot see what
saving can be accomplished.
"Mr. Arthur Sauve (Postmaster
General): We tried to do our best;
if we have not satisfied the people
there we will seek to do so. But
my hon. friend will understand the
situation that faces us on account
of the depression of business. We
are trying to do our best to serve
the public and at the same time to
serve the interests of the country.
If your people are not satisfied we
will seek to satisfy them.
Alice Arm and Anyox Mail
Service
"Mr. Hanson (Skeena): May I
also ask the Postmaster General
this: in the same district the towns
of Anyox and Alice Arm up to last
spring had three mail services a
week. Last spring they were cut to
two, which was naturally a hardship
on those communities. The latest
report that I have received informs
me that it is anticipated that the
service will be put to once a week.

This Paramount Pioture is a

hopes and hates that are born of
miracle money. Nine people each
receive a million dollars unexpectedly, and the thing is so fantastic,
that the poor starved souls, refuse
to believe it. Cafe hostess, convict,
clerk, old lady, condemned murderer, and so on. What would yon
do if you were'given a million dollars? See this wonderful picture
Saturday and note the varied suggestions for the spending of such
a fortune. Gene Raymond and

Boland play splendid parts. Fine
short subject series also. A treat
for Saturday.

This is a Metro-Gold wyn-Mayer

Grant vows he shall not, and the
man of wealth is murdered. The
exotic Kay Francis and beautiful
Madge Evans play leading parts
