y lifted her back into the boat and
rowed for shore. He assisted her
|o the honie of Mr. and Mrs. D.
wley, as she was not feeling
ery well, still evidently suffering
fom shock. She beoame uncon-
cious a few moments after arriving
i.t the house and all1 efforts to
jestore respiration were unsuccessful and she quietly passed away.
[)r. Whalen, of Anyox, who had
«en telephoned for arrived at 1
m. and after an examination

[ioubtedly died from heart failure
eceived from shook.

Council of Women. She attended
all meetings of the Citizens' Association and took an active part in
any movement for the welfare of
the town. She was held in the
highest esteem by everyone in the
town and her death will leave a
gap that will be hard to fill.

and was born at Malmo, Sweden,

Anyox Baseball
Anyox fans and fanettes witnessed the best baseball game of
the 1922 season so far played, on
the evening of June 1st, when the
Mine and the Smelter gave an
exhibition of ball playing that will
take some beating. The boys were
on their toes all the time, and played almost errorless ball. It was in
tlie main a pitcher's battle, however, Fitzpatrick for the Smelter
getting no less than fourteen strikeouts, while Ferguson for the Mine,
got twelve,
A feature Of this game, and one
seldom witnessed, was the retiring
of a side on three pitched balls.
Ferguson threw only three, each
batter connecting with the ball,
hitting lies, which were caught in
one, two, three order. It wasy a
good game to win and a mighty
hard one tb lose. The Mine won
by two runs to one. The umpiring
was very satisfactory. '
Umpire, E. Waterman; Base
Umpire, E. Wall. "
Capt. Davis' Smelter team was
on the short end of the scoring on
Monday evening last, when the
Elks-defeated the aggregation by »
score of three to one. Benny Fitzpatrick had a hard night, getting
no less than thirteen strike-outs,
but his support was not there when
needed most. At that he held the
Elks down to three runs, while
Capt. Draudson kept the Gas-eaters
scoreless until the last of the
seventh, when they got a tally on
a wild throw to third. The feature
of this game was the batting of the
Elks, Dow getting a nice hit, which
on faster ground would have counted two bases easily. Sherman
batted hard for the Smelter, but
his drives were plaoed in the right
garden where Bagwell gathered
them in. Bagwell accepted four
chances without a miss. The umpiring was clean! Umpire, E.
Waterman; Base Umpire, E. Wall.
Weekly Meeting of
Anyox Community
League Council
The regular meeting of the
Community League Council,' was
held in the Recreation Hall, on
Wednesday, June 7, at 7.30 p.m.
Those present were: President, G.
W. Williscroft; Vioe-President, E.
J. Conway; Secretary-Treasurer,
C. J. Lowry; Councillors, Mrs.
McKay, Messrs. Murdoch, Simpson,
Armour and Buzelle..
On the reading of the minutes of
the previous meeting and before
their approval, Mr. Buzelle took
exception to certain portions, one
dealing with the janitor situation
in the Library, the other to a word
in connection with his scheme for
rehabilitating the community spirit
in Anyox. He asked to have the
part wherein he stated that the
Chinaman employed in the Recreation- Hall, should be used in
connection with the Library work.
His intentions were, he said, when
the matter was gone into at the
last meeting, merely a question of
economy, to have the work done as
^eheaply-iis-possible,- but- ft -. wMte-
man was to be preferred. He
stated that his scheme had been
condemned by the Secretary's
report before it had had- time to be
approved by the Company officials,
because the words "dirty black
eye" were used "in connection with
Continued on page 3.
Stan Moran, the new second
baseman on the Mine line-up,
arrived in town last week, and
showed himself in the Smelter-
Mine game of last Thursday. The
writer has seen Moran perform in
fast company in the south. He is
a real ball player, and plays with
his head as well as his hands and
feet. .
The^smelter team showed up
with a new catcher in the game on
Monday last, and on his performance that evening, Greenwell
should be a valuable acquisition to
the Gas-eaters. Both the Smelter
and the Mine are now out to crowd
the Elks and the fans will get the
benefit of the rivalry;
The Juvenile League opened its
season last week, when the Colts
and the Reds had their first argument. The game had plenty of
thrills, and was closely contested
throughout, the Colts winning with
a score of 6 to 5. In their second
game, the Colts repeated, the score
being 8 to 7.
Anyox Football
The Mine Football pack humbled
the Elk's eleven on Friday night,
June 2, when they kicked the ball
for two goals, while the "Brother
Bills" were able to annex only one.
It was a spirited game to watch,
and while the evening was slightly
warm for chasing the pigskin, the
ground was in good condition, and
both sides wanted to win in the
worst way. Now that the winning
streak Jof the body has been nicked,
competition will undoubtedly be
keener.   Referee, Bob McMillan.
In a close and exoiting game, the
Smelter and the Mine teams fought
to a draw on Tuesday evening last,
the score being 1-0 at the end of
the tussle. The night was a very
warm one and ihe ground dusty.
There was a good attendance and
the crowd well satisfied with the
way the game was handled,
Referee, Bob McMillan.
The Chairman of the Recreation
Committee, Alex Roberts, is a busy
man these evenings with his new
love. It is of his own making too,
a ijolly nice looking motor boat.
We do not know what its name is
nor what it was christened with,
but we think sheV worth celebrating with a drop or two of
something.
Death of Anyox
Resident
The death occurred on Friday,
June 2nd, at the Anyox Hospital,
of Mr. Alexander Ardiel.
Mrs. Ardiel, wife of the deceased
arrived from Vancouver shortly

to Vancouver on Monday's boat
for interment.
Funeral Service was held on the
wharf on. Monday morning, Rev.

and was born in Bruce County,
Ontario. He had been in the

district.
He leaves to mourn - his loss a
widow and two daughters in
Vancouver.
Meeting Held at
Alice Arm
A meeting was held in the Anglican Church, Alice Arm, on
Thursday evening, for the purpose
of recommending someone to the
authorities for the position of Post
Master and Deputy Mining Recorder. Mr. T. W. Falconer was
elected chairman, and he stated
why the meeting had been called.
Mr. H. Carney then stated that

accepted, it being telegraphed and
a written resignation was necessary. He had 8'nce reconsidered his
decision and had decided to retain
the office and appoint an assistant.
The position of Deputy Mining
Recorder was then taken up. Mr.

The suggestion that the dues of
the Community League be made
compulsory to all persons residing
in Anyox is rather a drastic
measure to suggest, and if this
policy is carried out will cause a
large amount of irritation to a
number of Anyox people. The
old saying still holds good, that
"you can lead a horse to water, but
you can not make him drink.'
The Community League will never
be kept a live organization by compulsory methods. It is up to the
League Council to give value for
money received, and advertise the
advantages of joining the League.
The success of the League depends
entirely upon the value given for
money received from its members.
railway living a life of isolation
and hard work, no word of praise
is ever sung. No'poet lauds their
gallant work, no gifted writer extols
their efforts. They pass away
unhonored and unsung by the
nation, but the fruits of their labor
will remain for all time.
The death of Mrs. H. H.
Carney has removed one of the
real pioneers of the Canadian
West, and also one of the real
builders of the British Empire.
Railroad magnates and others are
knighted by the King when
they put thfough some big project
that is of great benefit to the
Empire. High officers of the
army and navy are honored by
the nation when they win spectacular battles on land or sea, but of

women of the Canadian West,

prairies and in the small settlements
of British Columbia, miles from a
Granby   Co's   Annual
Report Shows Operating Deficit
The Granby Consolidated Mining
Smelting & Power Co., Ltd. which
has just issued its annual report,
states that it is relying now,
almost entirely on its copper output, says the Vancouver Daily
Province. Its gold and silver production hi comparison is much
smaller. During the year the
accumulated stocks of copper
throughout the world were greater
than any other metal, with the
result that the ruling price was
low.
Through the co-operation of
their various departments and the
staff, the cost of copper production
has been reduced from 15.94 cents
per pound in 1920 to 11.65 cents in
1921. Theaverage price obtained
for copper last year was 12.75
cents per pound as compared with
17.85 cents in 1920. This big drop
in price had a very detrimental
effect on the year's revenue of the
country, which, after writing off
$300,000 for depreciation, showed
net operating deficit of $287,161.64.
A total of 913,008 tons of ore
was smelted in the company's
furnaces during the year, the total
copper production being 29,970,661
pounds, while the. other metal
yield was 493,283 ouuces of silver
and 8838 ounces of .gold. This
shows a decrease in the silver production, as compared with the
previous year, but an increase in
gold and copper.
The company's colliery at Cassidy

on Vancouver Island, produced
215,211 tons of marketable coal,
of this amount 125,686 tons were
sold.
Besides the new storage dam,
which is already under way, and
which when complete the directors
estimate will bring about an
annual saving of from $150,000 to
$200,000 in fuel oil, the directors
recommend the erection of a concentrating plant of 1000 tons
daily capacity at Anyox, to treat
a large reserve of silicious ore that
can not profitably be smelted
directly, and it is likely that work
will be commenced on the erection
of this plant before the end of the
year. v

the report published in the Alice
Arm and Anyox Herald as well as
in the minutes. Mr. Buzufle admitted that the words "black eye"
had been said, but he was positive
that the word "cjirty" was not
included. Mr. Buzelle moved and
Mr. Armour seconded a motion to
the effect that the above mentioned
paragraphs be struck out of the
minutes, which the Council agreed
to do. Mr. Buzelle then moved
and Mr. Armour seconded a motion
to the effect that a white man be
employed to combine the Library
and Recreation Hall jobs.
The Chairman of the Counoil "reported having visited Alice Arm in
connection with the summer oamp,
in company with the secretary, and
of having examined the housing
facilities there. He explained, that
a number of buildings were available and arrangements would be
made to secure those necessary
when it was ascertained how many
would go there. Chairman
Warwiok told of notifying members of Committee to get in touch
with those desirous of going.
For the second time, the janitor
question came up, and considerable
discussion resulted. It was finally
moved by Mr. Buzelle and seconded,
by Mr. Armour that the question
of the janitot-for Recreation Hall
and Library should be reconsidered
by the Finance Committee to the
end that a white man be secured to'
undertake both duties;
Under the head of new business,
Mr. Simpson mentioned the fact
that there was a scarcity of footballs and asked the Council to
order one or two, together with an
inflator.

was deoided on, and it was decided
to stick as closely as possible to last

suggestions made included baseball and football matches,
marathon, relay races, boat races,
field sports, children's races, as well
as a Community sing-song in the
evening, and a dance to be held in
the open air, a floor to be laid for
the purpose. In connection with
the sing-song, Rev. J. Herdman
was asked by the Chair to tender
some, advice, Mr. Herdman having
had considerable experience in connection with sing-songs overseas
and elsewhere, thought that it
would be a fitting finale to a
perfect day, and that the school
children might help out. in the
singing. It was decided not to

LETTER TO THE EDITOR
June 8th, 1922
Editor Alice Arm
and Anyox Herald.
Dear Sir:
In last week's report of the
Anyox Community League meeting
there  were   a   number  of errors
which I would" like to seeisorreoted,
and I trust you will give this as
much   publicity  as you did   the
previous report.
, I understand  this  report  was
submitted by Secretary Kelly of
the League, and is evidently his in
terpretation, but I wish to say it is
certainly not mine. The report
stated that I insisted that a Chinaman be employed in' the Library as
janitor. I asked that the Chinaman
at present employed as janitor at
the Pool Room could do this work
along with his other duties and
thereby save $25 now paid by the
League for this work, or if it could
not be done to employ a white man
as janitor to do the work in Library
and Pool Room and to pay him a
proper wage.
The Pool Room manager stated
that it was difficult to get a white
man to do this work whose honeBty
could be relied upon and the
majority of the Council accepted
this statement. I wish to say here
that I never did, and never will,
favor Oriental labor for British
Columbia.
You also state that I said the
Community League had a dirty
black eye and suggested a new
name to hide this dirty black eye.
I wish to eliminate the word
"dirty" and also a new name to
hide it.
I said the League had a black
eye, particularly at the Anyox
Mine, and suggested that in the
interests of good clean sport, that
we should start afresh. I out-
Jined a scheme whereby the people
at the mine could pay $1 per
month and the beach residents
$1.50 per month, the difference in
price to overcome to some extent
the transportation charges to the
mine, and instead of paying $10
to $12 per month as at present,
every activity would be free, otherwise, free pictures, pool, tennis,
library, no admission to ball
grounds etc., but instead of using
the word compulsory, I repeatedly
stated that if you could show a
person that they could buy a pair
of boots in one store at $5 and the
same boots in another store at $3,
the_$3 boots would be bought or'in
other words give the people good
value for their money, and this
whole matter put to a vote of all

MEN'S FURNISHING
DEPARTMENT
employees of the Granby Co. in
Anyox and let the voice of the
entire. Community decide this
matter. The word compulsory has
been removed from the working
man's dictionary long ago.
In conclusion, I wish to state
that if this is a sample of how the
League's minutes are being taken
down, and as seoretary Kelly does
not take his notes in shorthand,
he gives a contorted misleading
statement whioh is far from the
correct meaning.
Thanking you for your valuable
space, I remain,
Sinoerely Yours,
Dean Buzzelle.
We wish to say that the second
page of this paper was printed

we hope this is the last word on
the matter as far as we are
