Monthly Meeting of
Anyox Parent-Teacher
Association
On Monday, March 10th. the regular monthly meeting of the Anyox
P. T. A. was held as usual in the
new school with the president, Mrs,
Jenkinson, in the chair and a good
attendance of members.
In the absence of the seoretary
the minutes ofthe previous meeting
were read by Mr. McAlister. It
was decided to send a delegate to
the Convention of the Provincial
Parent-Teacher Federation, if a
suitable arrangement can be made
regarding expenses.
It is a matter of regret to the
Association that Mrs. Jenkinson
is leaving town at the end of the
present month.
The convenor of the programme
committee announced Dr. Learoyd
as the speaker for the April meeting
Then followed an excellent paper
by Mr. Haffner, the General Superintendent, on the smelting and
concentrating of Hidden Creek
ores. It was couched iu lucid nontechnical language, and gave a
thoroughly appreciative audience a
clear insight into looal process in
copper mining.
Enjoyable vocal solections were
feelingly rendered by Mrs. S. Herrin and Mr. A. Wilby, after which
! came refi eshments and a pleasant
social period, the meeting adjourned
after the singing of the National
Anthem.
Brilliant "At Home"
Given by Dr. Kinsman
Beautifully decorated in crimson
and gold, the new mine hall presented a very pretty aspect on Monday evening, when Doctor Kinsman
acted as host to his many friends.
Most of whom he has made since
his coming to Anyox. A number
of about thirty were conveyed from
the beaoh to the mine on the company train, leaving at 8.30, making
a total of approximately seventy
persons present.
Immediately after the arrival of
the guests the dancing programme
commenced and was continued
until the announcement of supper
when the party, adjourned to the
old hall, whioh was also tastefully
decorated and where supper was
daintily served.
Having done justice to a luxurous
repast the guests returned to the
mine hall where dancing was
resumed uutil the "wee snia' hours"
The Punch Bowl with its cool
and refreshing oontents added
much to the enjoyment of all present.
The evening oonoluded -with the
guests enoiroling their host singing,
"For He's a Jolly Good Fellow," to
which Dootor Kinsman responded.
The parting guests were unable
to find adequate words in which to
express their appreoiatien for the
generous manner in which they
had been entertained. The orohestra present inoluded Mrs. Pynn,
piano; G. Liddle, violin, and Jimmy
Cameron; traps.
Death of Mr. Geo. Gibb
of Anyox
The death occurred on Monday
morning of Mr. Gibb. who passed
away at the Anyox hospital after a
brief illness,
Deceased was well known in
Anyox. He came here nearly two
years ago and operated a wateh
and jewelry repair shop on the
wharf.
The late Mr. Gibb was born at
Edinburgh, Scotland and was 52
years of age. He came to Canada
during the winter of 1921, making
his home at Prince Bupert. Late
in 1922 he moved to Anyox.
Deceased was prominent in Masonic circles, He was made Master
of St. Clair Lodge iu 1904, to which
office he was re-elected in 1905 and
1906.
The burial was held on Wednesday afternoon with full Masonic
honors at the Anyox cemetery.
The remains were conveyed to
the Lodge room where the ceremony
was commenced in the presence of
about eighty fraternal brothers
who, afterwards in processional
order proceeded to the Anglican
Churoji where the Rev. Gibson, also
Chaplain of the Order, officiated..
During the ceremony Rev. Herdman
of theUuion Church, gave a brief
address.
Following the Church Service the
procession led the way the cemetery
where the last rites were administered.
Deceased is survived by his wife
aud one son, Mr. W. Gibb who both
reside in Anyox, and to whom the
sympathy of the whole community
is extended in their sad bereavement.
Successful Smoker Held
by Moose Yesterday
Last evening, the members and
friends of the Loyal Order of
Moose, Anyox Lodge, 1412, spent a
very enjoyable few hours at their
Lodge Room, held in the form of a
smoker.   -
A special attraction, which
added much to the enjoyment of
the evening, was the first appearance of the new Moose orohestra,
consisting of six pieces.
The rendering of a number of
ohoice selections, brought forth
well deserved applause from the
audience.
Refreshments were served during
the evening, whioh did oredit to
the oaterers, Mesdames Hartt,
Cross and Spragg.
Anyox Elks to Stage Big Vaudeville and Minstrel Show
March 28th» is the date set by
the looal "Brother Bills" to present
to the townfoik something new in
the way of "Thrills." Those
anxious for an evenings merriment
will be wise to book seats early in
order to gain admission, since the
programme as outlined is most
promising and will surely result in
a capacity house.
Granby Co. Speeding Up
Work at Alice Arm
The Granby Co. are going right
ahead with their logging pro
gramme for this season at Alice
Arm. The lumber for the camp
to be built alongside of the Dolly
Varden railway is already at the
wharf. The railway is now clear
enough of snow to allow the lumber
to be hauled to the depot. From
there it will be hauled on sleighs to
the camp site, by Al. Falconer, who
has obtained a contract for hauling.
The foundation posts are already
in place for the camp and the locomotives are being overhauled. It
is expected that lumber will be
moving today.
The Granby Co. have obtained a
•lease of five miles of the Dolly Var
den railway, two locomotives and a
number of cars for logging operations.
It is expected that in three or
four weeks logs will becoming dowi
over the railway to the booming
ground.
Work of preparing a oamp site
for the camp across the Kitsault
river commenced this week.
Alice Arm Will Have
Big Payroll This Year
There will be over 250 men employed in the vioinity of Alice Arm
this year. This is a conservative
estimate of the number of men that
will be employed in the different
logging, mining and government
road oamps that are certain to be
operating this year. Not so bad
for a town that is supposed to be
quiet. -
It is reasonable to expect that
this number will be increased before
the end of the summer, as mining
properties open up and takeon men
for development purposes.
Alice Arm was born a mining
camp, and its future depends on
the mining industry. The present
logging operations are only a sideline. Everyone knew the timber
wealth was here and would sooner
or later be developed. The utilization of this wealth comes at an opportune time, but logging operations will not make a permanent
town. Now is the time to get busy
and build up the mining industry.
We have the mineral wealth here
in abundance, and in order to interest capital we have got to get out
aud rustle. We might just as well
receive the benefit of the wealth
stored in the hills as leave it to
some future generation.

will be held at the Recreation Hall,
Anyox, on Friday, March 28th.

Basketball Games
at,Anyox   r,
Something new in the line of
entertainment was offered tO the
fans on Friday when the newly
formed Midget teams got into
action. There are two teams in
this league, namely the Shamrocks
and the Colts. In their first
encounter the Shamrocks came out
victorious by the score of 38 to 10.
The score however does not indicate
the nature of play. The Colts
seemed unable to locate the basket.
The play was clean throughout
and was also very fast.
The Teams were:
Colts; Bob Moffat, E. Clay, J.
Barclay, S. MoLaohlan, T. Asimus
aud S. Sawrey
Shamrocks: Cyril McDonald, J.
Lazorick, E. Barclay, J. O'Neil. G.

point the score being 11 to 10.

Logging Camp Puts Out
800,000 Feet
Mr. E. J. Tremblay who is logging part of the ground of the
Abbotsford Logging Co. had at the
end of last week logs measuring
800,000 feet b. m. pulled onto the
flats. Mr. Tremblay commenced
working last fall and has been
using horses for pulling out the logs
The oamp is located a short distance from the east hank of the
Kitsault river and will continue to
operate for some considerable time.
Logs to be Floated down
Kitsault River
Mr. C. P. Riel who has a contract from the Abbotsford Logging
Co. for logging their timber on the
west side of the Kitsault river is,
beginning tosliow results. Falling
was finished some time ago, and
Mr'. J. M. Morrison, who has a
contract for hauling the logs to the
river is making great headway.
About 400,000 feet are now in the
river, awaiting high water to carry
them to the salt chuck. Mr. Riel
is now engaged in constructing a
boom across the mouth of the Kitsault River. This boom will be
three-quarters of a mile in length
and is liow about half finished.

The Local Paper and
Community Progress.
By John F. Cunningham, president of Wisconsin Agriculturists.
Rachine, Wis. in National Printer Journalist.
There is a clear and definite
line of work for the local newspaper, whether it be a daily, semi-
weekly or weekly. From no other
source can the intimate personal
and business news of the small
town community be obtained.
There was a period during
which the small town newspaper
seemed to be smothering under the
increasing circulation of the city
dailies. The city daily does not
and cannot devote space to matters
of immediate interests to the small
town and the surrounding country.
We may say therefore, that while
in the great wall of news that confronts us from day to day, the large
stones and bricks will always be
furnished by the city dailies, through
the various news services that cover
the entire world, the chinks and
the cement will ever be furnished
by the local country newspapers,
news from nearby, the intimate
heart-throbs that come from the
local business, social, civic and
home activities.
Every town owes to itself to
encourage a good enterprising wide
awake progressive newspaper.
Such publications are worth far
more to the town than the town
usually realizes. By supporting I
mean nor only subscribing to the
paper and reading, it, but also
helping it to get the news, by using
it as a medium of public discussion
and by patronizing its advertising
columns.
In too many instances the good
local paper is taken as a matter of
course-about as we consider the
act of eating when meal time comes.
But the town which has no medium of local news or for the expression of local opinion is a barren
spot indeed.   God pity it! What
Considerable Mining in
Omineca District
During the past year, the Omineca Mining district as a whole and
the Smithers, Telkwa section in pe-
cular, has received considerable
attention from very strong and influential mining operators. This
attention has been the outcome of a
number of years of steady prospecting and developmont work ou the
Hudson Bay and Dome Mountains.
The district generally has been
perhaps eclipsed by the success of
the Stewart-Portland Canal area.
The years opened with some
shipments of high grade ore from
the Henderson Mine, located 14
miles from Smithers, and operated
by J. F. Duthie. Carload lots of
this ore averaged between 225 and
250 ounces of silver, together with
a high percentage of lead. Considerable grey copper and ruby silver
are to be found in this ore. Speci
mens will frequently assay several
thousand ounces of silver per ton.
In January 1923, a deal was oon-
sumated between the New York
interests who were represented by
Thos. Jefferson on Dome Mountain
and the Guggenheim organization
through their subsidiary, Federal
Mining & Smelting Co. of Wallace
Idaho. As a result of the transaction, the Dome Mountain properties are now being extensively prospected and developed by the Federal Company under the supervision
of Mr. Henry Lee with very gratifying results. Dome Mountain
has one of the finest surface showings of medium grade gold ore that
can be found. During the summer
of 1923, 40 feet of continuous width
of ore body, averaging around $300.-
00 per ton, was exposed, with
some streaks of extremely rich ore
interpersed in the lead. The Dome
Mountain group has not one mine

community progress can be made
with no vehicle of local publicity?
What Community ideals and heart
can be promoted or maintained
with no regular and dependable
organ to voice them? What community sympathy and fellowship
can be developed where there is
no clearing house for the heart-
where there is no common parkway where the myriad hopes and
discouragements, joys and heart
aches, successes and disasters may
be brought together and blended
into that intangible though very real,
thing or substance that we call
community spirit?

an area of some 5 or 6 square miles
A large crew has been steadily
working since the beginning of the
year, during which time Very fine
camp buildings have been bnilt and
a small steam compressor .plant
installed.
After the relinquishing control
of Henderson-Mamie group, Mr.
Duthie bonded the Hyland Basin
group, 24 miles north of Smithers
on the Babiue Range, owned by
Martin Cain and Tommy King.
Development work is in progress
on this property and a small shipment of ore assaying 170 oz. silver
and 66oz. gold has been sent down
from the property. Selected ore
from the Hyland vein, assayed 850
ounces silver and 467 ounces gold.
