Excellent Boy Scout
The Anyox Boy Scouts' Association were greatly gratified to note
the large attendance at the concert
held on Friday last, in the Recreation Hall, in aid of the Boy Scouts'
General Fund. The hall was full,
every number on the programme
was well put over, and the financial
results were beyond expectations.
In the unavoidable absence of Mr.
W. R. Lindsay the president, Mr.
W. F. Eve, who represents the
Canadian Legion on the Scouts' Association Committee, addressed the
gathering towards the close of the
concert and expressed the thanks of
the Association to all who had given
their services and talent so freely,
| and also those who had patronised
the concert. He outlined the plans,
for the financing of the boys' sum-
i mer camp, and explained that no fi-
I nancial hardship would be imposed
I on any of the parents.
The varied programme left no-
ithing to be desired.   The Sailors'

Mrs.  Pinckney  reached all hearts

Shade of the old Apple Tree." As
an encore she sang very feelingly,
"Absent." Miss Ellen McLeod and
the Misses Lily, Bessie and May
Barclay, who are pupils of Mr. H.
Laurie, danced the Highland Fling
and the Reel O'Tulloch. Their grace,
precision and skill earned well-merited applause. Mr. S. W. Barclay
recited in splendid style "Barb Wire
Bill", and as an encore gave "Ed's
New Gramyphone". Mr. Barclay has
an excellent memory, fine expression, and a good knowledge of shading and dramatic finish, and we predict for him a future as an elocutionist

behind "the scenes, As an encore Mr
Eve sang "O Promise Me" with
great beauty of expression. The

Alice Arm and Anyox
Will Have Fall
Alice Arm will again hold an exhibition this year. Anvox garden
ers and house-wifes will also be extended an invitation to exhibit.
This decision was reached on Saturday last, when a general meeting
was held at Alioe Arm, to deoideas
to this year's aotivities.
The meeting was opened by E.
Moss, who briefly explained why
ihe meeting was called. The minutes of the last meeting were read
by Secretary H. Fowler.
The first business before the
meeting was to deeide whether an
exhibition should be held this year.
It was the unanimous opinion that
an exhibition should be held along
the same lines as last year, and that
the people of Anyox, be extended an
invitation to exhibit their garden
produce. The date to be decided
upon later.
It was also decided that the organization be named, The Alice
Arm and Anyox Agricultural So
Officers were then elected for the
coming year. They are as follows:
Honorary President, Harry Smith,
(who was the founder of the exhibition last year;). Presidont, E.
Moss; Vice President. J. Trinder;
secretary,; W, B. Bower.
It was decided that an Exhibit
Committee, Sports Committee, etc.
be appointed by the officers, at a
later date, and also make arn 'ige
ments to acquire a suitable buildip '•
As there is a considerable increase
in the number of Alice Arm gardens this year, and as more i eople
of Anyox are planting gardens, it
is expected that the exhibition will
even surpass last year's. Anyux
gardeners will be interviewed this
.summer aud an Exhibit Committee
appointed if they are favorably inclined to compete.
A list of the varieties of v ege-
tables, fruits, flowers, ci.nued goods
etc. for competition will be publish
ed in the Herald at a later date.
J. McConnachie Brings Sea
Plane To Anyox
J. McConnachie, who secured
his commercial air pilot's licence
last year, visited Prince Rupert recently for the necessa1- • semiannual medical examination. He
brought back with him to Anyox a
Gypsy Moth seaplane, the property
of the Northern B. C. Airways Ltd.
He landed about noon on Sunday
Later in the afternoon he gave a
number of his friends a taste of air
life, letting them see the district
from an altogether different "standpoint," and they thoroughly enjoyed
the experience.
Mr. McConnachie took the plane
back to Prince Rupert on Wednesday, returning himself on the Canadian National boat that evening.

British Cruiser Delhi   Will
Visit Anyox in August
A real historical event in the life
nf Anyox and district will be the
visit of H. M. S. Delhi, flagship of
the Commander-in-Chief of the
West India Squadron.
The cruiser is scheduled to be at
Anyox from Monday, August 29th
until Wednesday the 31st. She is
of the same class as the "Dragon",
which visited Stewart in 1930.
Her complement is approximately
450 ofiicerr 1 men. No time will
be lost  ii !ring preparations for
the reception and entertainment of
these men of the British Navy.
The formation of a Joint Committee representative of all the bodies
concerned, as the i.O.D.E., Canadian Legion, Community League,
and the Granby Company, has already been proposed, and citizens
will be kept posted as to developments.
Victoria Day Golf Tournaments Interesting
On May 24th a two ball "Green-
some "Competition attracted no less
than 42 entrants. The winners were
Chas. Cundill and R. C. Gegg,with
a score of 68 net. The second prize
went to Jack Moffatt and J. Dixon
with a net of 71.
Golf Tournament Tomorrow
On Sunday, June 5th, a Team
Tournament, will be held between
the Captain's and the Vice-Captain's
teams. This will be 18-hole medal
play, and should prove very interesting.
Mine Defeats Rangers
In Football League
A nice crowd turned out to witness the third game of the Football
League, played between the Mine
and the Rangers on Tuesday last,
the Mine winning 1—0. It was an
ideal evening for football.
The Mine fielded a strong team and
played well, although they missed
one or two nice chances'of scoring.
Their forwards were aggressive and
their defence strong. The forward
in* of the Rangers were a little
light, but the youngsters bored in
pluckily and were dangerous on several occasions.
Ivor Davies had hard luck in the
second half,when he sent in a sizzler
which just caught the top bar.
Freddy Calderoni played a good
game,trit»ing his men like a veteran, and Mekeli was strong and reliable in goalSlJhe odd one that

With its present line-up the Mine
team will be serious contenders for
League honors. Jack Evans handled the game very efficiently.
School Taxes For Alice Arm
Will Be Higher Next Year
A reply has been received from
the Department of Education by
Mr. O. Evindsen, secretary of the
Alice Arm School Board, in con
nection with the petition recently
forwarded by the School Board,
asking for an increase of govern
ment assistance in regard to the
school teacher's salary.
The reply is disappointing. The letter from the Superintendent of Education states the Alice Arm School
Distriot will be placed in Sub-class
A. The Department will contribute
52 per oent of the teacher's salary
next year. This year the Department of Education paid 62 percent
This means that next year the tax
payers of Alice Arm will be called
upon to pay 48 per cent of the
teacher's salary, instead of 38 per
cent, this year. The School Board
is still corresponding with the Superintendent of Education and hopes
that a more favorable adjustment
will be made.

Patrick Clune An Old
Timer of Granby Co.
Passes Away
After being connected with the
Granby Company for a period extending over twenty-two years,
Patrick Clune, miner, passed away
at the Anyox General Hospital on
the morning of Monday, May 30th.
at the age of 62 years.
Deceased was a native of Ireland.
He was mining in the Boundary
Country during the boom days of
the 90's. It was in the Phoenix
district in 1902 that he met with an
accident underground that broke
his back. The accident occurred
at the Skylark mine, between
Greenwood and Phoenix and was
before he entered the employ of the
Granby Company. He made a
miraculous recovery from injuries
that appeared fatal", and apparently
enjoyed good health afterwards,
except a deformity that caused him
to walk with a considerable stoop.
In spite of this handicap, however,
he continued his occupation as a
miner, coming to Anyox from Phoenix, and worked steadily until December 1929, when his health
began to fail and he left Anyox to
reside at Alice. Arm.
Deceased thus worked as a miner
for a period of twenty-seven years
after the injury that broke his back.
There is, perhaps, no other case on
record of a man recovering from
such an injury and following the
arduous occcupation of a hard rock
miner for so long a period.
The late Paddy Clune was held
in high esteem by a large circle of
friends both at Anyox and Alice
Arm. He was a charter member of
Anyox Lodge No. 47, B. P. O.
Elks. It was his express wish that
he be buried at Alice Arm under the
auspices of the Elks' Order. In
accordance with this wish the interment will take place tomorrow,
June 5th., when the body will be
taken over on the launch "Awake."
It is expected that a large number
of officers and members of the
Lodge will make the journey and
pay their last respects to their departed brother.
Green Shows Up On Anyox
Golf Course
Green has at last appeared on
the Anyox Golf Course! It is
showing up very vividly at this
particular season; can easily be
seen from a distance, and is quite
refreshing to the eye. The committee in charge are to be congratulated on this splendid result of
their deliberations and labors. The
green, we might say, is concentrated in one spot; viz, on the Club

The decision of the United
States Government to impose a
tax of 4 cents a pound on all copper going into that country comes
as a disagreeable surprise to Canadians. It means, if it becomes
law, as it no doubt will, that
Canadian copper in future is barred from the United States. It is
rather an unfriendly act, and it is
doubtful if it will assist American
copper producers in raising prices
in that country. In commenting
on the copper tariff the Wall
Street Journal says:
"If a tariff on copper is to benefit American mine owners and
miners it will have to raise the cost
of copper to domestic consumers.
There can be no objection to that,
so long as the price does not rise
above production cost, plus a
"reasonable" profit, whatever that
may be, and provided the tariff is
not used as a mere device to protect high cost producers from the
fair competition of low cost producers here at home. But no such
measure of dubious assistance before its probable affect upon employment in the metal manufacturing and exporting industries has
been thoroughly explored. If the
United States wishes to sell the
world copper in any form it must
meet world prices."
Just how tbe new American
tariff will affect the Granby Co. is
not at present known. At the
present time they are shipping a
portion of their copper to Eastern
Canada for refining. The' new
tariff may probably work a hardship on Canadian exporters for a
short time, but there is no doubt
that eventually arrangements will
be made to export our surplus
copper to Great Britain. This
question will no doubt be discussed
at the Imperial Conference, which
will be held at Ottawa in July. At
the present time Great Britain buys
the bulk of her copper in the
United States.
Rangers and Celts Draw
In Second League
Considering its early stage, some
fast and creditable football was seen
in the second game of the League,
played between the Celts and the
Rangers on Thursday the 26th.
The evening was calm and clear;
and a good number of fans were on
hand. The youngsters in the
ranks of the Rangers—Fred Calderoni, I. Davies, J. Pinckney, F. Sanderson and F. Mikeli—played well,
and deserve some credit for holding
their own against the experienced
men of the Celts. Frank Mikeli
played a cool and confident game in
goal, stopping some that appeared
to be through freight, The Celts
new goalie—Gawthorne—played excellently, being called upon to attend
to a real bombardment in the first
half. The scorers for the Celts
were J. Elliott and J. Taylor, while
Tom Buchanan and Jim Donaldson
accounted   for the  Rangers' tally
The game ended two all.     Bob
McMillan, a veteran of the   Ladysmith and Nanaimo football wars
was the capable referee.
Girls Keenly Enthused Over
New Ranger Movement
Not to be outdone by their confreres, the Rovers, or Senior Boy
Scouts, the girls of Anyox have
organized themselves, into a body
known as the "Rangers";, under
the leadership of Mrs. J. W. Lang.
Supporting Mrs. Lang in this splendid work is a strong 'cdmmittee
composed of Mrs. J. L. Stewart,
Mrs. McMaster, Mrs. Simpson, and
Mrs. J. McMillan. The girls of the
Rangers must be sixteen years of
age. So far twelve girls have enrolled, and already it has been planned to give them a course in home
nursing. Later on domestic science
and other useful subjects will be taken. A summer camp is also being
planned. The group will meet on
the first and third Saturday after,
noons each month.
Mayo  Camp Still Shipping
Silver Ore
Despite the low prices of metals,
the high grade silver-lead camp of
the Mayo district has witnessed no
little work this winter, and 5,000
tons or more of high grade ore,
mostly mill concentrates, are awaiting shipmint. Most of this ore is
from the Lucky Queen claim of
Treadwell Yukon Company on Keno
The decision of the Department
of Education to place the Alice
Arm School District in Sub-class
A, is not very pleasant news for
the rate-payers of Alice Arm.
Despite the petition that was recently forwarded to Victoria, and
the explanation that was given in
regard to the stoppage of all payrolls here, and the utter inability of
the majority to pay their taxes, the
school assessment for the district
has been increased instead of decreased. If Alice Arm is one of
the most prosperous communities
in the province, and to judge by
the classification given it, it is in
the opinion of the Department of
Education, then Heaven help those
districts that are eligible for classes
B, C, D and E.   We firmly be
ucation have erred considerably in
their zeal to collect taxes in placing this district in Class A, and we
hope that they will quickly institute
an examination and correct the
error made. The money is simply not available to take care of
increased school taxation. If the
rate had been lowered as the petition entreated, then there was a
possibility for the majority to meet
their taxes. Everyone in Alice
Arm is aware of the government's
urgent need of money in order to
carry on. They should, however,
use a little judgement when choos
ing their fishing grounds. The
streams at Alice Arm are dry.
When money is fairly plentiful our
taxes are cheerfully paid, but when
money is non-existent as at present
the taxes cannot be paid, no matter how high the penalties are.
The result is a propertyless floating
population and a penniless government.
Two men sat in a bar drinking
Presently one of them said: "Do

''Wait till we've had a few more
drinks," said Dick, "and I'll sell it

China Heavy Importer Of
Canadian Silver
China purchased more than half ot
the million and a half ounces of silver bullion which Canada exported
in March. A heavy purchase of
249,430 ounces was again made in
April by that country. It was valued
at$74,280. British India also made
a large purchase of silver bullion in
April, taking 438,706 ounces at
$136,000. United States bought
213,005 ounces, at $67,198, as well
as 42,433 ounces in ore at $12,123.
The total export of silver in April
was valued at $289,601, as compared with $104,023 in the same month
of 1931. Canadian production of
silver in March was 1,460,137
ounces, with a valuation in Canadian funds of $486,497, according
to the Dominion Bureau of Statistics.
We are assured that there is no
truth in the rumor which has been
spread about lately, that—following
the petition from a hundred Amer

He was attempting to cross a

fell in front of an oncoming train.
Just how the accident occurred is
not known, as no witnesses were
present. Both his legs, however,
were caught and orushed under
the train. Reports reached Alice
Arm on Monday that on that day
he was undergoing an operation
for the amputation of both feet.
Mr. Gerhardi is well known in
the Alice Arm district. It was
through his endeavors that the
Toric mine was developed from a
prospect to a considerable tonnage
mine. His many friends in the
north will be extremely sorry to
hear of his unfortunate accident.

Serious Bush Fire Occurs At
Larcom Island
A bush fire broke out at Larcom
Island on Sunday evening, and burned for several days. On Monday it
was greatly aggravated by a high
wind, and the big blaze has been
watched each evening, by many in
terested folk at Anyox. A gang of
fire-fighters worked steadily, until
it was completely under control.
A match, a cigarette butt, or a
fire carelessly extinguished was the
probable cause. Everyone should be
most careful of fire, not only at Anyox but everywhere throughout the

Anna May Wong,  Warner Oland,
j Sessue Hayakawa
fn this Paramount picture there
are two outstanding Orientals,
Anna May Wong and Sessue Hayakawa, are very much worth while.
Miss Wong is an Oriental actress
of obvious personal points, who
surrenders to her dying father's
wish and drops a glamorous point
of vantage in London to project a
program of vengeance. With all
his fiendish application of chemistry and psychology, Fu Manchu
was not a more resolute menace
than the pretty daughter proves to
be. Loved by an exalted gentleman of her own race, and loving an
English nobleman, she allows her
heart dictates no chance to defeat
the accomplishment of her oath.

Lowell Sherman and Mae Murray.
The story deals with a wealthy,
elderly man, who falls in love with
a scheming gold digger and marries
her. He is so madly in love with
her that she is able to make him
obey all her wishes. The hero,
brother of this man, realizes that
his sister-in-law is a scheming
woman and tries to open his brother's eyes gently. He obtains un-
disputable proof that she is a gold
digger, and that her friend is a
crook. He obtains proof of her
duplicity, and forces her to sign a
confession, and sends her, away.
His brother returns and is brokenhearted at first—then see how happily the picture ends. The talking
is extremely clear. You'll like this
picture. Make a point of seeing it
on Tuesday.
