Caledonian Society Hold
Card Party & Dance
The Card Party and Dance held
by the Caledonian Society of Anyox
at the Elks' Hall on Friday, October 12th., proved to be one of the
most successful events of the new
season. The playing of Court
Whist was indulged in for the first
part of the evening, the winners
being: Ladies' first, Miss Margaret
Shields; Ladies' consolation, Mrs.
J, Turnbull, Gents' first, Mr. T.
Graham, Gents' consolation, Mr. J.
A delicious supper was served
which was followed by the main
programme of the evening, i.e. old
time and up-to-date dances, played
by the Syncopals' Orchestra. Both
the old time and new dances were
well received by the select number
of people present. Following are a
few of the old-fashioned dances
that were very popular: Circassian
Circle, Scottische, French Minuet,
Military two-step, Petronella and
Quadrilles. During the evening
two vocal solos were rendered by
Mr. T. W. Marks.
Gymnasium Class Is Proving
Very Popular
. Though stiff muscles and a heavy
liniment bill are part and parcel of
the local Gym class, it seems to lose
none of its appeal for devotees of
this type of excercise.,
Mr. McKay has now a steady
clientele whicb is always on the
increase. However, "there is always room on top." For the benefit of those who would like to go
along, the hours are from 6:30 to 8
p.m. Sundays and Wednesdays.
Mr. Ted Kergin has been observed favoring a stiff neck. It is
whispered that the stiffening of the
vertebra was caused by an attempt
to dive over a four foot gymnastic
horse. Mr. Kergin is very reticent
on the matter, but indignantly
denies any such report
Mine Basketball Girls Acquire
New Uniforms
Spectators at the Gym on Wednesday were treated to a pleasant
surprise, as the Mine girl hoopsters
appeared in natty new outfits. The
new uniforms are orange and black
and are probably the classiest ever
seen this far north. With their
names lettered in black on the back
and a monogram on the shorts, the
uniforms are the last word in style.
The girls are to be commended
on their initiative and driving force
shown by the manner in which they
gave their dance and worked for
their equipment.
Alice Arm Notes
Mrs. T. Payne and three children
arrived on Monday from Vancouver, to join Mr. Payne here, who
arrived some time ago to superintend affairs at the Esperanza mine.
H. W. Butler arrived on Monday
from Aiyansh to take charge of the
Government Telegraph Offloe. Mr.
Butler was formerly telegraph
operator here, leaving for Aiyansh
six years ago. J. C. Studdy who
has been iu charge of the local
office for the past six years leaves
on Monday next for Alert Bay
where he will take a similar position.
Paul Everest, field engineer for
the Britannia Mining Co. left on
Wednesday for the south, after
spending a week here examining
the Toric mine.

Commercial Law Course At
Night Schools
A new class has been added to
the Anyox Night Schools this season. It is Commercial Law, and
the instructor is Mr. Carl M.
Stewart. This class holds its oourse
at the High Sohool every Thursday
evening and is proving very popular. The cost of the course of over
a six months period, is only $6.00
and can be paid for in two monthly
payments. This is a chance to
obtain a course in Commercial Law
that seldom prevails.
Sewing Bee Holds Weekly
The weekly meeting of the Hidden Creek Sewing Bee was held at
the home of Miss Rita Henderson
on Tuesday evening, October 9th.
Other members present were Mrs.
T. Evans, Mrs. G. Adams, Mrs.
S. Hopkins, Mrs. O. Lindgren and
Mrs. R. Summers.
Basketball Games This
Week Somewhat
With fast play and clever combination together with the full
support nf the small but vociferous
contingent of fans from the Mine,
the Vandals soored a 4 point victory over the pugnacious Trojans
on Friday last.
The young veterans put up the
best fight of their lives and had
they not been a man short in the
final minutes, the score would possibly have been different. A basket
apiece by Meagher and Kulai gave
the Vandals the game. Total score
—Vandals 24-Trojans 20.
The game between the Aces and
the Mine, was pretty much a repi-
tition of the last game. The Aces
with hard luck finding the basket,
were on the losing end of a 9-7 score.
The Mine girls, individually, have
all it takes to make real basketball.
With some heavy coaching, the
girls will no doubt, show real team
The game which ppcned the evening was taken from the Rovers by
the Warriors. The Kovers are
rapidly gaining a reputation for a
chronic inability to win. Warriors
—29 Rovers 13.
Monday's games repeated the
previous Monday's fiasco. With
both the Vandals and the Elks
taking the floor with a heavy '"mad
on'' at the referee, the game was a
complete miss.
The Elks, rapidly becoming
known as ''the league's bad boys,"
roughed it up considerably and
were pretty much tossed around in
return. The booing at the referee
by members of both teams after
tjhe game was a novel feature.
How players, who grumble at
every decision and fans who jeer
and hoot, can work up indignation
at what they term an unsporstman-
like referee, is not quite clear;
Anyox basketballers "work in wondrous ways their blunders to perform."
The girls' game was also disappointing, although the girls did try
hard to make it fast and interesting. Owing to the absence of a
score keeper the audience did not
know until the end of the game
that the Aces had a one point lead
over the Spooks.
The Warriors, going into five
minutes overtime in the first game
to vvin from the Foundry, showed
a real fighting and sportsmanlike
spirit whioh oould be copied to advantage by some A players.

Canadian Copper Output
Continues To Increase
A. C. L. Benefit Fund Now
The A. C. L. Benefit Fund is now
in effect and those wishing to subscribe may do so by getting in touch
with Mr. Norton Youngs.
The fund provides insurance for
any athletes hurt during any practice, game or work in connection
with sport, authorized and supervised by the A. C. L.
The insurance will amount to
$2.00 a day for a maximum duration
of six weeks.
Fees are 25 cents a month which
will be collected by the A, C. L. in
the same manner in which dues are
collected. All sport enthusiasts are
urged to join for their own benefit
and for the sake of the sport in
Anyox. Those wishing to join
must be fully accredited members
of the A. C. L.
Production of new copper in Canada during 1933 totalled 299,982,-
448 pounds valued at $21,634,853,
compared with ?47,679;070 pounds
at $15,294,058 in 1932, according
to finally revised figures released by
the Dominion Bureau of Statistics.
The 1933 output of copper represents an increase of 21.1 percent
over the preceding year and is the
largest production recorded since
the peak year of 1930. The average price for the year based on the
London market and transposed into
Canadian funds, was 7.4548 cents
per pound, an increase of 1.0746
cents per pound over the corresponding price of 1932.
The high quality of Canadian
electrolytic copper is finding evergrowing recognition in world markets, a fact that is reflected in the
important exports of this commodity since the commencement of electrolytic copper refining in Canada
during   1930  and   1931.     During
1933 Canada supplied almost 13 per
cent of the world's production of
copper, and indications are that the
1934 copper output will establish a
new high record, production being
estimated at from 175,000 to 185,-
000 tons. Canada's 1933 copper
output was contributed by five of
the provinces, namely, Ontario,
Quebec, British Columbia, Manitoba and Saskatchewan.

Hope Runs High As
Silver Prices Rise
The recent upward trend of the
price of silver has awakened hopes
of renewed activity in many mining
towns in British Columbia, and no
town is feeling more hopeful of the
future than Alice Arm. Should
silver rise to around 60 cents an
ounce and show signs of being
stabilized at that price the result
should be instrumental in renewed
development of the silver belt of the
Upper Kitsault Country. The Britannia Mining & Smelling Co. will
without a doubt re-commence operations at the Toric mine just as soon
as silver is stabilized at a price that
ensures profitable mining. Other
companies will unquestionably start
development on other silver properties if encouragement is given them.
No one of course can even guess
when this good fortune will be
showered on Alice Arm, but all residents are hoping that next spring
will see the last of the local mining
depression and many former Alice
Arm residents, who now reside in
other parts or the province are
anxiously awaiting the good tidings
so that they can return.
The  Capitalization Of
Companies, Public
And Private
Four million bushels of wheat,
two million feet of lumber, cattle
etc. was shipped from Churchill,
Hudson Bay, this year. Wheat and
prairie farm produce, will eventually
like water, find its own level. If
wheat, etc. can be shipped cheaper
from Churchill, Stewart or Prince
Rupert than from eastern ports, no
powers in Canada will stop it, although desperate attempts are and
will be made to do so.
Over  $46,000,000  In
Dividends From Mines
This Year
A new all-time record for disbursements made to shareholders of
mining stocks, will be established
this year according to a survey
made by a leading Canadian financial paper. Shareholders in Canadian mines will receive over $46,-
000,000 in dividend payments
during the year 1934 compared with
the previous all-time peak of $44,-
737,837 established in 1930. Dividend declarations and payments by
Canada's metal mines during the
current year to date have amounted
to approximately $37,014,717, an
increase of 31 per cent over the
whole of 1933 when the sum of $28,-
312,624 was paid. On the basis of
the above estimate the grand total
of dividend payments of metal mines
in Canada since the inception of
records will at the end of 1934 approximate $581,500,000. Disbursements to date have reached the
total of $572,572,169.
The following is the second of a
series of legal articles written by
Mr. Carl M. Stewart of Anyox, the
first of which was published last
As mentioned in our last article
we are dealing this week with the
capitalization of companies. Most
of us think that when we speak of
capital we mean by that actual assets, but in the case of companies
this is far from the case.
You and I could incorporate a
company tomorrow and if everything that we put into the company
added up to only one thousand
dollars we could still capitalize our
company at fifty thousand dollars,
one hundred thousand dollars, or
even one million dollars.
So when you see a company advertised as having a capitalization of
say, one million dollars, it does not
mean a thing. The actual assets
or value of the company might be
next to nothing.
The original amount for which a
company is incorporated is called
its Authorised Capital. This in
most cases is divided up into shares
and these may be of any denomination, that is, they can be dollar
shares, ten dollar shares, or say
one hundred dollar shares, the total
of them of course making up the
authorised capital.
When people agree to purchase
shares in a company they are said
to subscribe for them. So when
you see the words Subscribed Capital, you know the total that people
have agreed to pay into the company
and this of course has some value,
the value depending on the ability
of the share purchasers to pay, if
they have not already paid. Care
must he exercised here however, as
in many cases the promises to pay
by the purchasers are of little or
no value. I know of one case
where a company agreed to purchase
four hundred thousand dollars worth
of shares in a large ■ company and
the large company advertised that
all its capital was subscribed in
eluding this last amount. It was
found however that when an attempt was made to collect the
balance owing on this large block
of shares, that the company which
purchased it had few assets and it
was impossible to collect anything.
The words Paid Up Capital have
a real meaning and represent actual
cash or goods or services paid or
rendered to the company.
Of late years a new type of company has come into existence and
instead of having shares of a certain
nominal value such as ten dollars,
one hundred dollars etc., they are
said to have no par or nominal value.
This latter arrangement is by far
the best as in order to get at a valuation one must take the surplus of
assets over liabilities of the company and divide it up among the
number of shares that have been
Under the former arrangement a
ten dollar share might, when you
figured out the actual worth of the
company, be worth only fifty cents
or it might be worth twenty dollars,
the actual nominal value shown on
the share having seldom much re-
Russia Claims To   Be
Second Gold Producer
Soviet Russia now ranks as the
second largest producer of gold in
the world as the result of spectacular output gains in the past two'
years, the most recent estimates,
official and otherwise, indicate.
The 4,000,000 fine ounces of gold
which the Soviet Union is expected
to produce this year would outstrip
both Canada and the United States
long rivals for the position of runner-up to South Africa. Russian
output in 1933 is officially placed at
2,489,000 fine ounces by the government, a gain over 1932 of 142
per cent, and more than twice the
annual average of Czarist days.
The Soviet government claims to
have spent more than 500,000,000
rubles in the past four years on the
gold mining industry. Its foreign
orders for gold mining machinery
have grown visibly. Officials of the
Bolshevik regime assert that Russia's gold deposits are well.nigh in-
exhaustable and that the U. S. S. R.
some day will exceed even the
Transvaal, richest gold source ever
found.—The Review.

There are two types of company,
Public and Private.
The Public company is used
where shares are being offered to
the public. It has to, in its annual
return to the government, file an
audited balance sheet.
A Private company does not
openly offer its shares to the public.
Its membership is limited to fifty
and its shares are not transferable
without the consent of the company.
The Private company does not
have to file a balance sheet with its
annual report, so that its financial
affairs are not public property.

their shares are paid for, have no
liability for debts of the company,

OVER $1,352,000,000 WORTH OF MINERALS.
The gross value of mineral production for the six months
ended June 30th. 1934, exclusive of gold premium, is
estimated at $18,667,691.00, an increase of 50.5 per cent,
over the estimated value of the production in the corresponding six-month period of 1933.
GOLD PRODUCTION: Gold production showed a
decided increase; a total return in Canadian funds
to the gold producers of British Columbia during the
first six months for 1934 being approximately
$5,028,124.00, an increase of 81.3 per cent, over
the return in Canadian funds received during the
first half of 1933.

Canada's mineral industry. Other
minerals will also contribute to the
national wealth. With the rate of
nickel output during the first half of
the year at unprecedented levels,
and with the expectations of a
quickening of steel operations in the
United States in the last quarter, a
new high output record is anticipated for this metal. Indications
are that copper output will establish a peak record, the 1934 production being estimated at from
175,000 tons to 185,000 tons, comparing with 148,500 tons iu 1933.
Lead and zinc output for the first

M\\ hunting season is
Jl here. In Canada the
wine of early frosts
is in the air and
the maples, like banners of crimson and
gold against the dark friendly evergreens, proclaim that once again the
" red gods " hold high carnival.
The woods are at their best—the
moose is slick and black, the buck
deer has his horns burnished to his
fancy, the coat of the black bear
shines-like silk and the lustrous
robe of the grizzly is a study in
dark and grey. The big-horn sheep
is restless and alert, the mountain
goat snow white and the caribou in
the prime. The grouse and woodcock
are plump and contented in the
coverts, while the ducks and geese
are gathering in favourite feeding
grounds in preparation for their
long flight south.
The game areas of Canada,
scattered from ocean to ocean,
are readily accessible from any part
of the continent. It is not a country
for the wealthy sportsman only;
the   hunter   with   moderate   means
may also be suited. Local residents
can enjoy a trip at a very reasonable
cost. Sportsmen from other lands
are welcome and are only asked to
show their appreciation of the privilege of access to her game fields
by obeying the hunting laws and
observing the ethics of sportsmanship.
A publication entitled "Canada's
Game Fields" which should be of
interest to sportsmen planning a
hunting trip in Canada may now
be had upon application*to the
National Parks of Canada, Department of the Interior, Ottawa.

great improvement in his style.
The girls' game also showed
speed. Arrayed in their colorful
new uniforms the Mine girls gave
a glimpse of what may be expected
of them later in the season. With
snappy plays and sure passing the
girls gave a good exhibition.
The Spooks' greater experience
won out in the end however, and
the Beach girls 6nished on the long
end of the soore.
In the first stanza the Mine B
romped away from the Rovers to
an easy 25-11 win.
"Lockie" Gillis
"Lockie" is a veteran basketball-
er. Playing for the first time in
Vancouver junior and intermediate
leagues, he has run the gamut of
everv phase of basketball.
Endowed with a keen eye and a
body that works like a well oiled
machine, he is acknowledged one of
the best of our local hoop technicians.
After being coach and captain for
the Mechanics' team of the last few
seasons, he is now playing his old
position at guard for the Elks, in
his old capable and steady style.
Refereeing the games last Friday
night he proved his knowledge of
the game and enhanced his reputation for square play and straight
calling, by supervising what has
probably been the most orderly and
contented game night of the recent

Too Much Criticism Referees
Anyox basketball players are
fortunate in having two first class
Norton Youngs, famous as the
coach of the "Celts." the team which
made history in Northern B. C, is,
without a doubt, a fair, sure and
well informed basketball enthusiast.
Strict in enforcing the rules, calling the fouls with an eye grown
keen with years of the sport, Anyox
basketballers could ask little more
of any referee.
Johnny Lazorek, with years of
local experience in the game, is a
referee in full command of any
Yet in spite of the fact that this
is so, our local hoopsters are probably the most dissatisfied group of
athletes north of "49." Such a
situation is a reflection on the
sportsmanship shown locally.
"The referee is always right," is
the first rule of any sport, a rule
which Anyox fans and players have
thrown into the limbo of lost facts.
Hooting and jepring at the referee, both from the floor and sidelines
is always an inevitable though
nauseating feature of our local
basketball games.
The charge thrown editorially
by a Vancouver newspaper, that
sport is the most unsportsmanlike
activity in which human beings
take part, may become well deserved here in Anyox, unless a little
more support is shown those who
conscientiously foster and referee
our local sports entertainment.
