, A wedding of special interest to
the people of Anyox and district
took place in the United Church at
Anyox on Monday, September 17th.
at 8.30 a.m., when Gladys Weno-
nah, youngest daughter of Mr. and
the late Mrs. W. E. Ballentine, became the bride of Mr. John Ryan,
eldest son of Mrs. S. Reynolds of
Vancouver, B. C. The Rev. E.
Baker officiated. The church was
prettily decorated with autumn
flowers. Mr. Frank Dresser, organist of the church played the
wedding music, and Mr. R. Brown
sang "Until."
The bride, who entered the church
on the arm of her father, wore a
cocoa brown tweed travelling suit,
with shoes, hat and gloves to match.
She carried a bouquet of gladioli
and chrysanthemums. Mrs. J. L.
Groves, sister to the bride, was
matron of honor and chose a tailored chartreuse dress, with black
shoes, gloves and hat. Her bouquet was of Autumn flowers.
The groom was supported by his
brother, Mr. George Ryan, and
the ushers were Mr. Les. Hyams
and Mr. Jack Golettly. After.the
ceremony the guests were entertained in the basement of the church
which was decorated for the occasion. Mrs. B. Thompson, sister
of the bride and Mrs. J. Cloke received the guests.
The bride's table was decorated
in yellow and was centred with a
handsome three-tier cake. Mrs.
W. Barclay and Mrs. H. R. Patrick
poured the tea and coffee, and the
usual toasts were honored. The
happy couple left on the Catala for
a honeymoon trip to Vancouver and
Seattle.   They will reside at Anyox.
Stuart Barclay Has Contract
For Driving Tunnel
At Stewart
Stuart Barclay, a former resident
of Anyox, and whose family still
resides here, has taken a contract
for the driving of 175 feet of tunnel
on the Glacier Creek property at
Stewart, situated between the Dunwell mine and mill. Good progress
with the driving of the tunnel is
being made by power drills.
The results attained by the driv
ing ot this tunnel will have consid
erable bearing on the southern
portion of the Dunwell property, as
the tunnel now being driven is only
700 feet from their boundary. The
vein to be cut is generally accepted
as the southern extension of the
main Dunwell vein.
Dolly Varden Railway
Will Be Repaired
This Fall
The Department of Publio Works
has deoided to commence repair
work on the Dolly Varden Railway
at Alice Arm this fall. Work will
start next week or not later than
Ootober 1st. The sum of $3,000
has been appropriated and the railway will be made passable for gasoline speeders as far as possible
this fall.
The work undertaken will consist of cutting brush for as many
miles as possible. In many sections the brush is very dense and
is badly in need of cutting. Other
work will consist of repairing
washouts and bridges.
Only looal men will be employed
and wages paid will be $3.20 for
an eight hour day.
The money for this work has no
doubt been drawn from the $1,000,-
000 loan recently received by the
province from the Federal Government, the whole of which amount,
will be itsed in repairing roads and
bridges throughout the province.

Shower Given In Honor Of
Miss Ballentine
One of those happy events which
precede most weddings and always
prove popular was held in the Odd'
fellows Hall, Anyox, on Wednesday
September 12th. This was a mis>
cellaneous shower in honour of
Miss Gladys Ballentine, whose wedding took place onMonday last.
This fortunate young lady, who
numbers a great many friends
throughout the district, was made
the recipient of a large, number of
handsome gifts. The happy affair
later resolved itself into a social
evening and dancing was indulged
in by the many guests present.
Mrs. F. Person arrived on Monday from the south.
F. Dodsworth and N. E.
Nelson Basketball
At the Annual meeting of the
Anyox Basketball Association on
Monday September 17th. Mr. N. E.
Nelson was unanimously elected
basketball commissioner from the
Mine and Mr. F. Dodsworth was
unanimously elected as the Beaoh
representative. For the post of
managing secretary Mr. Arthur
(Slim) Yelland polled 22 out of a
total of 29 votes and will aot with
the commissioners in the managing
of games this season.
As far as can be ascertained indications point to a three team
senior A league this year and a
four team Senior B league.
It is understood that the Mine
will also enter one ladies' team.
No representatives were present
for the Beach ladies, but it is hoped
that the Beach can field two ladies'
teams. Some discussion took place
in regard to the possibility of de-<
termining a players' status, iu order
to keep a balance of ability in the
teams. As it was not deemed advisable that the commission arbitrarily move players around from
one team to another, this one obstacle is still a bone of contention
between the fans-
The A. C. L. Benefit Fund for
athletes was also reviewed at length
the Fund will go into effect with
the beginning of the hoop season.
The commission desire those
who will be managing or coaching
teams, to enter tlieir teams at least
a week before opening. Players
will be required to be signed on at
least 3 days before the first game,
A meeting of managers and
coaches has been tentatively set for
next Monday September 24th.
Champion Basketballer Comes
.   To Anyox
Betty, daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
Eklof is a newcomer to Anyox and
a welcome addition to the few
jadies we have who are athletically
inclined. She can boast of playing
with the F'solum team of Vancou
ver Island, when they won the
Championship in 1931. She has
also pitched championship softball,
when she helped the F'solum team
to B. C. supremacy.
In addition Betty took first honors iu high jumping and baseball
throwing, in the Upper Island
sports meet. We hope to see this
young lady in aotion in our looal
ladies' league this winter.

F. Tautz, T. Griffiths, L. Samaan,

of British Columbia have, in many
cases during the past two or three
years been sqgjewhat neglected and
are in great need of repair work.
In the Alice Arm section a good
many thousands of dollars could be
advantageously spent in again providing transportation to the mineral
areas, and, judging from news recently received, this matter will be
adjusted by the government. It is
true that the development of the
Alice Arm mining properties have
not kept pace with many other districts during the past four years,
but on the other hand there is no
hope that extensive development
work will be ever undertaken unless
transportation is provided for
mining companies.

Plans are well advanced to open
up the Ben Ali vein on the Dunwell
property, with a view to shipping
to the smelter at Anyox, according
to a statement made to the News
today by R. M. Stewart, president.
Replying to questions, Mr. Stewart
said that this vein, which has an
average width of three feet over
considerable distance, averages half
an ounce in gold, with a good silver
Being a quartz gangue with
heavy iron sulphides, this ore is
ideal for fluxing, and therefore

some time ago, and allowed an

will re-establish the ancient ratio of

This is not inflation. It may
properly be termed "reflation." It
is equivalent to letting the air into
a vacuum, which is not at all the
same as pumping air into a balloon
till it expands to the bursting point.
The mining industry generally,
the silver producers in particular,
and the whole people as a matter
of course, have reason for confidence in the program which President Roosevelt has worked out, and
in the ultimate restoration of normal prosperity.

Bralorne's mill at present is hand

will have an important bearing on

North-west Mining.
As the province of Ontario enters
its golden autumn season, regarded
by many as the most beautiful period
of the year, the announcement is
made that the production of the
yellow metal from the gold mines
of the province in the first six months
of 1934 achieved a new high record
of $36,626,316 in Canadian funds
as against $27,487,135 in the corresponding period of the previous
year. The quantity output of the
yellow metal, however, was lower
in 1934, totalling 1,040,222 fine
ounces against 1,092,392 in the
previous year.
Reno Mine Steady Producer
Although the mill at Reno Gold lost
five days during August when the
crew was called out for fire fighting
the production total at $61,296 indicates continuance of satisfactory
results in mine and mill. The total
compares with $68,658 in July when
the mill operated 28^ days and
handled 2,815 tons. August tonnage amounted to 2,420, indicating
an average of slightly over $25 per

Great Railroad Has Fine Police Force
White gloves, part of their official dreBs, are
especially appropriate to members of the
Canadian Pacific Railway Police, not only for the
smart touch thus added to their blue uniform, but
because they are emblematic of the force itself; an
organization of spotless reputation and unfailing
courtesy. Not only is this picked body of men,
uniformed and ununiformed, the safeguard of the
property of the world's greatest transportation
system and its thousands of patrons, but its members
are friends and mentors to countless travellers in all
part of the Dominion. Wherever the company has
an interest, be it a great terminal, a wharf or a vast
freight yard, "the man in blue" is to be found.
Many of the constables and their officers are ex-
servicemen and at their head is Brigadier-General
E. de B. Panet, C.M.G., D.S.O., A.D.C., a distinguished Canadian soldier with a splendid record
as a staff officer during the Great War. The force has
won many trophies for first-aid work and also in
revolver shooting, its Ontario team having captured
the Canadian police revolver championship for the
whole Dominion this year.

CANADIANS are fortunate in
their National Parks, in that
they have within their borders Alpine scenery which is not
equalled anywhere on the continent, and more and more they are
realizing that holidays In Canada

all the thrills that could be found
anywhere in the world. Jasper
National Park in the Canadian
Rockies, contains many high peaks,
eternally snowcapped, and on the
sides of the mountains are glaciers
which have stood the test of ages.

some instances, almost aa far aa the
eye can see, lure the adventurous
climber to new attempts, while in
the calm, peaceful valleys wild

Basketball Will Start Again
On October 1st.
At a well attended Annual Basketball meeting on "Monday last, it
was deoided that tlie basketball
schedule for this season should start
on October 1st.
The motion was carried over the
protesting votes of those from the
Mine who were present. The objection put forward by Councillor
Bill Gourlay was that the Mine
players now on night shift, would
have no chance to practice before
snob an early opening date.
However, owing to the rules of
tlie Northern B. C. Series which
make March 30th. the closing date
of the series, It was considered advisable to start our local league as
early as possible.
