Angus Mclvor and Joseph Sarvioh
who were charged at the Supreme
Court Assizes at Prinoe Rupert
this week with unlawful assembly
at Anyox on the morning of February 3rd. were acquitted on Tuesday afternoon after a mass of
evidence had been heard on both
sides. The jury deliberated one
hour and twenty minutes before

Mr. Justice Murphy was the
presiding judge at the trial. L. C.
McGill of Smithers acted as counsel for the Crown and Gordon
Grant of Vancouver for the defence.
Police constables who were present at the melee on the Mine Road
bridge repeated their former evidence of having been faced by a
mob of about 400 excited strikers
from the Mine, who were marching
•to the Beach for picket duty. They
told of futile attempts to persuade
the men to return to the Mine, and
of the severe beating several of
them received at the hands of the
strikers when attempts were made
to stop them.
Three of the accused, Angus
Mclvor, Kenneth Montgomery and
Matt Jurgevioh, denied that they
had been on the bridge at the time
of the riot. G. Sanvido and M.
Sarich admitted having been present, but declared with the other
accused that there had been no
trouble until the police started to
force the crowd back swinging

Rover Troop Open New
Quarters In Beach
Through the courtesy ofthe Community League, the Anyox Rover
Troop now have fine new quarters
in the basement of the Gymnasium.
The premises are commodious and
comfortable, and will be an added
incentive to these ambitious young
men in carrying out their educative
The last meeting of the troop,
in the old hall, was held on April
13th. when Mr. Edwardes, ofthe
Canadian Bank of Commerce, gave
a most interesting address on banking. Questions were afterwards
asked by various members of the
troop, and carefully answered by
the speaker. The first meeting in
the new quarters was held on Monday, May 1st. with Mr. Lindsay,
the president of the Association, in
the chair. The following members
of the Association Committee were
present: W. F. Eve, D. P. Williams, R. A. J. Manning, R. Gale,
andV. S. McRae. Mr. T. H. Bam-
for/V)., Rover Commissioner for
B. C. gave a most interesting address. General business occupied
the first part of the meeting, then
refreshments were served and singing and jollity was indulged   in.
The gymnasium class recently
started, under the leadership of
Rover Mate J, Taylor, is now quite
a feature. Rover Leader R. 0.
Cutler has provided both a surprise
and an example, by the way he can
perform the various stunts and exercises called for.
Anyox Mosquito Fleet Being
Intent on making their craft as
neat and trim as possible, local
boat owners are specially active
just now. The most visible evidence of this is of course new paint
and several boats have been provided with new spring coats. Weath
er conditions encourage the belief
that the season will be an excellent
one for boating, and local sailors
are prepared to take advantage of
fine warm weather.
Every advantage was taken of
the sunny weather of the past week
by the Alice Arm gardeners, to
complete the planting of their crops.
The ground around the residences,
is all nicely levelled off and anxious
eyes are awaiting the coming of
the green shoots, that herald another harvest next fall.

Lots of Candidates To
Choose From
Week by week the provincial
political situation becomes more
complicated. Premier Tolmie recently announced that he had changed his plans in connection with candidates with conservative affiliations
and that his party would place a
candidate in every riding in the province. Mr. Bowser has publicly
stated that he will do the very same
thing. The liberals, no doubt will
do likewise. Labor will run candidates in many ridings, including
Atlin. Mr. Woodsworth's newly
formed party, the C. C. F., or
something, have decided also to
run candidates in various ridings.
Then there will probably be independent conservatives and liberals,
straight independents, plus a few
disgruntled cranks:, who will make
a bid for political honors.
Verily it bids to be a hot campaign, and the electors, will only
have themselves to blame, if, from
the varied material offered, they
they fail to elect a government that
realizes dollar bills don't sprout on
bushes, when- tax demands are
broadcast, and that higher taxes
with lower incomes, are not con
ducive of a return to prosperity.
Elks' Beach Again Proving
Popular Resort
Last Sunday quite a number of
people, paid a visit to Elks' Beach,
and enjoyed a few hours sunshine
at that popular resort. Several
bathers took a plunge and enjoyed
the experience. During the past
week, a few more have taken to the
briny, and it is evident that this
spot, with its dressing sheds for
bathers, will become more popular
as the season advances.
Mrs. R. C. Perkes arrived on

Strike of Ladies' Aid
Amicably Settled
A packed house greeted the ladies
of the United Church, and the numerous assisting artists, at the concert held in the Recreation Hall on
Monday last, when a laughable
sketch: "The Strike of the Ladies'
Aid," was presented. The programme opened with an Overture
by Professor Heppeler's String Orchestra, which was splendidly rendered,as an encore, the "Hungarian Melody" was given.
A number of Mr. H. Laurie's
dance pupils delighted everyone
with a rendition of the "Sailors'
Hornpipe" to the accompaniment of
the bagpipes played by Mr. Alex.
Robertson. Little Audrey Forde
recited  "Seeing Things at Night."
The cause of the labor dispute,
between the ladies and their husbands, arose on account of the
apathy of the latter, regarding the
building of a new room for a Sunday School, and, although the strikers did not exactly stand firm in
their demands, they accomplished
their object, and the play was much
appreciated. A pleasing violin duet
by Miss M. Evans and Miss B. Lee,
"The Dear Little Grandmother"
was given with nice expression.
The concert was in every way a success, and the committee were much
gratified with the results.

Company, arrived on Wednesday

Three Tennis Clubs Are Now
In Full Swing
At all three tennis clubs of Anyox
—A. C. L., Hidden Creek, and
Mine—the game is away to an early
start, and promises much recreation
to a great many enthusiasts this
summer. The consistently fine
weather has induced a number of
new players to try their hand at the
game. Also at all three clubs—the
Mine especially—there are several
new members, giving quite a filip
to the sport, and an added interest
for the older members. Vounger
players are being encouraged to
take up the game. Official;; and
members are looking forward to a
record season of the time-honored
net game.
Alice Arm Tennis Club
Hold Their Annual
The annual general meeting of
the Alice Arm Athletic Association
was held at the Club House on
Saturday evening last.
Officers elected for the coming
year, were: President, A. D.
Yorke; Vice-President, G. Anderson; Secretary, Mrs. H. F. Kergin. Executive Committee, Mrs.
O. Evindsen, Mrs. B. Turbitt, Mr.
T. W. Falconer.
It was decided that membership
fees for the Tennis Club for the
present season be as follows:
Adults $1.00, Children 25c, Anyox
visitors 50c. a week or $1.00 for a
season ticket.
Considerable discussion arose as
to making a payment this year to
the government on the land owned
by the Association. Owing to the
small amount of money ou hand it
was deoided that it was impossible
to make a payment at the present
time. The meeting was informed
that a balance of $324.00 was due
in payments to the government
before a title could be obtained.
Correspondence will be opened
up with the government explaining
to them, that, due to the abnormal
depressed conditions existing, the
finances of the Association does
not permit a payment on the land
this year, and the payment of future
instalments is also problematical.
As the land is used solely for recreational purposes, it is thought
that the Association may obtain a
long lease on the land, or obtain a
title for a small consideration.
It was decided that as sufficient
money was available, for the purchase of a new net and the painting
of the court, that this be done.

Baseball Players Hold Try-
Out Game
On Friday, May 5th. a large
number of baseball players and fans
turned out to the ball park, when a
try-out game took place between
teams selected from the Beach and
the Mine. An excellent game resulted, the Mine coming out on top
with a 3-2 score. A number of
new players made their appearance
and, judging by the quality of the
baseball displayed the season will be
an unusually good one. The officials in charge are all keyed up for
the carrying out of a really interesting season, and the players eagerly
await the start of the league fixtures.

a mile away from the bridge when
they heard the shooting. When
they arrived the only man present
was Steve Stenovich, whose eye
had been knocked out by the
police. They hurried and caught
up with the crowd later, and when
they arrived Inspector Shirass

the Mine, identified the five accused as former workmen under him.

and five hundred men going down
the road toward the Beach on the
morning of February 3rd. It was
dark, but he could see the procession by means of electric lights on
the road.
Roland Gale, Charles Docherty,
and Richard Deeth told of being
stopped at the Beach on the morning of February 3rd. when going
to work, by strikers from the Mine,.
James B. Murdoch and John Jeffrey told of seeing the procession
from their homes when the strikers
were marching to the Beach.

Government  Appoints  A
Commissioner for Rupert
A  commissioner has  been   appointed by the Provincial Govern
ment for the City of Prince Rupert.
W. J. Alder, former resident and
property owner of that city, has
been awarded the position and will
shortly take up his new duties.
The mayor, and aldermen, will be
disbanded. It is expected that
Mr. Alder will carry on as commissioner for several years.
Appoinment of the commissioner
follows the recent default of the
city on bond interest payments, a
court order authorizing the appointment having been made a
couple of weeks ago.
L. D. Taylor Will Oppose A.
M. Manson In Omineca
Mayor Louis D. Taylor has announced that he intends to be an in
dependent candidate in Omineca at
the next general election, which is
expected to take place within the
next few months.
This constituency is now represented Mr. A. M. Manson, K. C,
former Liberal attorney-general and
more recently prominent as counsel
for former Police Chief C. E. Edgett
in a Vancouver municipal shakeup.
The mayor decides he will be divorced entirely from all political
parties. "I have been considering
this move for some time" he declared "and, unless something unfor-,
seen happens, I shall be a candidate
in Omineca."
His worship declares that his
election for an interior constituency
would not mean that he would neglect his duties as mayor of Vancouver On the other hand, he declares
he would be in a better position to
serve the city in the dual capacity,
of mayor and a member of the Provincial House.
This is the second time Mayor Taylor has invaded the provincial field.
In 1912, as a Liberal candidate in
Rossland, he was defeated by Lome
Put Idle Men To Work Producing Gold Says
"There is so much talk about
overproduction that many seem to
think everything is overproduced.
There is one very important commodity which is greatly underproduced. That is gold. Instead of
trying to put men to work producing things that are already overproduced, or things which, when
produced are of no use, why not
get some of them to work producing gold? A few million ounces of
new gold, would raise the general
price level and be worth billions of
dollars to the world in general. It
would pay the leading countries
to subsidize gold production. For
every dollar paid ont in subsidiaries
the world would gain $100 in higher prices, stimulated business, more
employment and returning confidence.

lifting us ont of this depression as
it was in lifting us put of the de
pression of the '90 . .."—Thomas

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
hold for the lover of out-of-doors
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
Bides of the mountains are glaciers
which have stood the test of ages.
Millions of tons of ice, stretching in
some instances, almost as far as the

popularity of Jasper National Park
was so great that the capacity of
Jasper Park Lodge was taxed, and
the  additional -> bungalows   being i
provided this year will take care of
almost fifty per cent, more guests.
Four 4-room bungalows, each
room with bath, and two 12-room

private bath, are being ejected. In
addition, a double-deck boathouse,
with the upper fioor for conventions, and dancing, fs being constructed, and an octagonal curio

Football  Season
Start On May 24th.
In trim uniforms, and all set for
the opening tussle, the Rangers and
Mine football teams will face each
other on May 24th. for the first
game of the league series. The
ground is being prepared, equipment overhauled in expectation of
one of the best seasons of football
in Anyox for several years.
Three teams will enter the league:
The Celts, the Mine and the Rangers. Games will be played on Monday and Thursday evenings. As
an incentive to the public to follow
the series, and also as a measure of
economy for all fans, the Football
Association are issuing season tickets, not transferable, for either one
or two persons. The purchase of
these tickets will not only mean a
saving but a great convenience, as
it will only be necessary to show
tickets to the collector. Single admissions may of course be paid for
as usual.

At Its Height I
It would seem that Anyox people
are trying to outdo one another, in
the matter of gardening. Never
were more seeds sown or plants
hopefully planted. All suitable patches of ground are being made into
gardens, and window boxes are
everywhere. Old King Sol continues to smile in approval upon it all.
There is every indication that the
coming summer will find Anyox, if
not exactly a fairyland, a place with
many spots that will be colorful to
the eye and a delight to the senses.
Much energy is now being expended
towards this desirable end.

The Hotel Grosvenor Is
Increasingly Popular
When planning your visit to Vancouver, you are invited to make the
Hotel Grosvenor your headquarters.
Conveniently located in the heart of
the city, near all theatres, banks
and fashionable shops, the Hotel
Grosvenor combines excellent accommodation with unequalled service at the lowest prevailing rates
in Vancouver. The Hotel Grosvenor, Vancouver's hotel of distinction
has a long-established reputation
for superior service and is the recognized Vancouver home for B. C.
Owned and operated by E. G.
Baynes, assisted by Miss B. Helen
Gilman, popular assistant manager,
the Hotel Grosvenor is known to
British Columbia people as the
"House of Hospitality." The
charm of friendliness which has
made this hotel famous to the traveller is immediately felt by the incoming guest.
Local and out-of-town visitors are
invited to visit Vancouver's largest
and most modern radio station located on the lower floor of the Grosvenor. Here hotel guests are provided with interesting and diverting
The Royal Canadian Mounted
Police, famed in fact and fiotion,
are becoming mechanized and as a
mounted foroe they may soon pass
out of existence except for ceremonial purposes, says a bulletin ofthe
Canadian National Railways.
However, although the horses
may disappear, the force itself will
not. It is growing in size and
prestige. To the usual duties of
the foroe, has been added customs
preventive work and six of the provinces have scrapped their provincial forces and have turned the police work over to tlie federal Joroe.
Because of this, the foroe now has
a strength of 2,500 officers and
men and its equipment consists of
359 automobiles, 27 motor cycles,
13 trucks, 101 boats both seagoing
and for use in inland waters, 445
sled dogs and 256 horse's. The
dogs are still much in demand for
work in the far northern sections
of Canada though in emergencies
the police now take to planes and
cover in a few hours, distances that
take days or weeks by dog team.
