Crowded House Enjoy
Fine Concert By
Choral Society
The members of the Anyox
Choral Society created an enviable
reputation for themselves on Thurs
day, April 30th when they staged
their closing conoert of the season
at the Recreation Hall before an
'audience that crowded the hall to
the doors.
Every item on the programme
was admirably rendered and the
large audience showed their appre
ciation by loud applause and de
mands for encores.
The programme opened with a
part song "Hail Smiling Morn"
sung by the whole Choir, and this
number wa,s well received by the
large audience, although it was
evident that the singers were a
little nervous at first, but they
very quickly recovered.
The second number was a duet
entitled "Stars Brightly Shining,"
by Mesdames Plumb and McMillan
who sang very well indeed, and
earned a round of applause for
their efforts. Mrs. Redman being
the accompanist for this tuneful
A special number, one of the,
'brightest items on the programme
was a solo by Mrs. F. Allen of
Prince Rupert, who was a visitor
to the town during the week, and
accepted the invitation to sing at
the concert. Mrs. Allen has a very
pleasing voice and her song "A
May Morning" received such
hearty applause that she was
obliged to give an enoore.
Another pleasing number was
the rendition of the "Cradle Song"
by the Ladies' Chorus.
The feature of the evening was,
of course, the Operetta, "Penitent
Pirates," and the brilliant manner
1 in which this operetta was put on,
showed that it must have taken a
considerable amount of work on
the part of the members of the
Choral Sooiety, to make it the sue
cess they did.
Mrs, J. L. Anderson, as leading
lady in the role of "Marguerite the
Optimist" waB exoellent and her
voice was heard to advantage in
the various songs. Miss Mary
Dodsworth, as "Peggy the Pessimist" was also a great suooess,
and her part was brilliantly oarried
out. William Pinckney, as the
hading man in the oharaoterof the
pirate ohief, "General Henry" was

Celts Defeat Smelter In
First Football Game
Of League
Who offended the weather man?
He provided atrocious conditions
for the opening clash between the
Celts and Smelter on Tuesday the
5th. Special medals for bravery
are being prepared for the gallant
players, referee, linesmen, man
agers, and a handful of spectators
whom apparently nothing will
squash. Yet in spite of an evil
wind, lowering clouds, bog holes,
and a heavy, slippery ball the
game was a good one. Smelter's
defeat was somewhat unfortunate
for them, as they played one man
short. They put up a valiant
fight and made their opponents
go some" to win. For the Celts.
George Allen notched two goals,
McColl one and Doug McConnachie
one, while Jack Buntain and Tom
Buchanan scored one each for the
Smelter. Jim Ferguson handled
the game very satisfactorily
George Hunter took a header into
a convenient swimming pool, but
apart from this most of the'players
managed to keep fairly dry, and
the game was otherwise clean

many improvements have been
made to make the place like a Club

weather, the tennis enthusiasts
should have a very enjoyable day
Anyox Gardeners Are
Beautifying Grounds
A walk around Anyox reveals
the fact that many gardens will be
cultivated this year, School Street
promising to be very brilliant.
Many gardens not previously cultivated are in very good shape.
James Murdoch', whose garden
was very beautiful last year, has
something up his sleeve this season, and it is probable that before
long many people will walk up the
Mine Road, specially to see this
line display.
Mr. Ashmore's large garden is
also receiving attention, and promises to be as attractive as in previous years.
The consignment of plants received at the Granby Stores were
quickly snapped up by local gardeners.
In the Beach area, many of the
gardens are very tidy, and neat-
beds have been set out for flowers.
We hope the gardeners will gat
results from their splendid efforts
towards a brighter Anyox.
In regard to sport, it was noticed
that the Ball Ground is in fine
shape. Both goals have been receiving the attention of carpenters,
while the dressing rooms and walks
to the ground have also been attended to.

Dress Rehearsal Of The
"Beauty Shop" Will
Be Given
If many days and nights of hard
work, an abundance of pep and
enthusiasm, and a determination
to do things right mean anything,
then the forthcoming production
of "The Beauty Shop" should be
an overwhelming success. Members of this large cast and chorus
of more than fifty ladies and
gentlemen may be heard any day
between the hours of noon and
midnight going through their
paces in the Elks' Hall and those
in charge promise the public the
most pretentious and most pleasing
affair of the kind ever attempted
in Anyox. •
After witnessing some of the
rehearsals recently, a prominent
citizen was heard to remark that
if every song, every dance, the
chorus with their fetching costumes and color were eliminated it
would still be a "whale of a show"
inasmuch as the clever lines and
dialogue are alone sufficient to pro
vide a wonderful evening's entertainment. But with a real "Beauty
Chorus," hundreds of costumes,
many charming singing and dancing numbers, patrons may be
assured of something far out of
the ordinary in local theatricals.
On Wednesday evening a preliminary performance will be given
in the nature of a dress rehearsal
at which tickets will be sold to all
school pupils at a price of twenty-
five cents. A complete performance will be given starting at

Alice Arm Prospectors
Call a Meeting To
Redress Wrongs
A public meeting was held at
the old Bank Building on Thursday
evening. It was called by a number of prospectors of the town for
the purpose of criticizing the
method of work done here by the
Public Works Department, and
also the small amount of employment given to prospectors.
M. Peterson was appointed
Chairman of the meeting and A.
D. Yorke acted as seoretary. The
building was tilled to capacity.
In opening the meeting the
Chairman made a few remarks
stating that dissatisfaction had
prevailed for some time among the
prospectors of tho town. They
felt that as pioneers of the district
they had not been fairly dealt with
when men were hired for work
undertaken by   the   government.
He stated that a petition would
be laid on the secretary's table for
anyone to sign, if they felt inclined
after it had been read.
The petition, which was addressed to the Department of
Public Works, Victoria, and was
somewhat lengthy, was then read.
It stated that it was the general
opinion of the prospectors of Alice
Arm that it was unnecessary to
spend any further money in the
town of Alice Arm. That the
money to be expended would benefit the government to a greater
extent if it was spent on road
work in the Upper Kitsault Country, where several potential mines
were partly developed. It also
stated that the prospectors of the
district were not given a fair share
of government work, those employed being a small circle.
An investigation of work done
was also asked for.
The petition was then laid on
the table for signatures, following
which the Chairman stated discussion would be undertaken.
It was proposed from the floor
that discussion be undertaken
before the petition was signed.
The Chairman, however, stated
that anyone wishing to discuss it
could do so after tho signatures
had been completed.
Following the signing, the meeting closed as discussion then seemed futile.
Arrivals on Monday from Prince
Rupert included E. Stone, C. H.

The Truth About Silver
Reprinted from the Mining and
Industrial Record
"The stabilization and remonetiz-
ation of silver has been the subject
of much discussion in the West for
many months, and the advantages
which would result from such
action have been stressed. These
are evident to all who live in the
silver producing and silver using
countries. The advent of even 50
cent silver is apparent to British
"Can it be done? The answer to
this question is in the affirmative.
It could. By international agreement, only. But when the question
is—Will it be done? Or shall it be
done? the answer is not so decisive.
"As a mild tonic to our Western
optimism, we quote here a recent
opinion of the Northern Miner, of
Toronto, which is not without interest.    The Northern Miner says;
"We would like to see 50 cent
silver, for the sake of our Canadian
operators in that metal. We would
be glad to have our northern miners
in the silver camps working full
time and the old line companies
making money for shareholders.
But there is no use in trying to
dodge the truth. The outlook for
improvement in the price is,slim.
What about the various conferences
the nostrums and remedies proposed
in recent months? American producers have interested Washington
authorities and the latter have
canvassed the possibility of getting
the support of Great Britain to a
scheme whereby the sale of Indian
silver would be restricted; in fact,
she attempt proposed was to interest all the principal silver using
countries in stabilizing the price.
"There will be no conference,
Great Britain will not agree to one,
for the simple reason that she faces
the facts. Even if the nations did
confer, nothing would come of it.
"The blunt truth is that the
British Empire is a buyer of silver
and United States is a seller. It is
not to the interest of the former to
listen to the selling talk of the
latter. India is the British Empire
unit which is most concerned and
India is anxious to maintain a free
market on this metal. The wealth
of the great bulk of the population
of India is in the form of silver and
strange as it may appear to a producer, the natives of that country
have no objection at all to receiving
two pieces of silver where they took
in one before.
"It is not possible for stabilization
or any other measure to break down
in the mind of eastern peoples the
inbred belief that silver is valuable.
Actually, the abundance and
cheapness of the metal in the east
has increased business, particularly
imports. A higher price would
have the   unexpected and perhaps
Prospector's  Don't  Take
Losses Seriously
Suicide of an Oklahoma publisher who lost his fortune in Wall
Street calls attention to the statement before a Senate sub committee that 2100 suicides from this
cause have been reported by a
single insurance company in the
year following the panic of 1929.
Which leads us to this question,
asked not in idle curiosity: Has
any reader ever heard of a suicide
caused by loss in a legitimate prospecting enterprise that failed to
find ore?—Mining Truth, Spokane.
Fifteen thousand two-year old
fir trees from the Government's
nursery at Vancouver were recently
planted on logged off land, near
Campbell River, where a thousand
acres have been reserved for reforestation.
