The Minister of Mines
Donates First Aid
Cup For North
With the idea of encouraging
still further the work of First Aid
in mines, Hon. G. S. Pearson,
Minister of Mines, has donated a
handsome trophy oup for annual
competition among First Aid teams
in the mines throughout the northern district. This year the competition for this cup was held and
concluded in Anyox and next year
arrangements will probably be made
to hold the competition throughout
the whole northern distriot.
The competition was held in the
Mine Hall on Wednesday last between five-men teams in charge of
T. M. Waterland, S. Reid and L.
Samaan. These three teams did
excellent work and the judges had
no easy task in deciding the winning quintette. This proved to be
team No. 2 under manager S. Reid.
This team tied with that of T.
Waterland's both having 26 points
out of a possible 30, and on au oral
examination Reid's team won.
The judges were Dr. Learoyd
and Dr. James, with Ed. Ashton
aud F. Graham assisting. Mr.
Charles Booking was present and
gave an interesting talk.
The oup was presented to the winning team by Mr. Chas. Graham,
Distriot Inspector of Min9s.
There was a good attendance of
mine officials and others interested
in the work.
Wolf Pays Penalty For
Killing Goats
Wm. Steven, who operates a
vegetable and small fruits ranch on
the Kitsault Flats east of the river
firmly believes in keeping the"wolf
from the door" in both good or bad
times itat all possible. Mr. Steven
emphatically answered the question
of "Who's afraid of the big bad
wolf," with a decided "Not Me,"
on Tuesday morning at 5 a.m.
when he shot aud killed a big timber wolf, who had, in company
with his mate, been molesting his
herd of goats.
These wolves had previously been
seen in the district by several people, and on Monday morning they
raided Mr. Steven's herd of goats,
killing two small ones aud injuring
the mother. They returned to
their scene of slaughter ou Tuesday
morning when the dawn was
breaking. One shot was sufficient
to dispose of the male, but his mate
escaped. It was in good condition,
showing that game was plentiful

The Victoria Day oelebration at
Alioe Arm, while not conducted on
such an elaborate scale as on some
former occasions was patriotically
observed by both townsfolk and
the large number of Anyox visitors
who spent the day here. Ideal
weather prevailed, hot sunshine
prevailing during the early part of
the day and cooling off toward
The festivities commenced on
Wednesday evening with a dance
at the Alice Arm Hotel.
It was attended by a large number
of Anyox visitors, and the splendid
rendering of the up-to-date dance
numbers by Harry Ward's orohestra was greatly enjoyed.
During Thursday several additional launch parties arrived from
Anyox. They spent the day sightseeing arouud town, and car riding
or hiking in various parts of the
district, in search of wild flowers,
and enjoying the scenery.

Eight Candidates Confirmed
At Anglican Church
There was a large attendance at
the Anglican Church at Anyox
on Sunday evening last, when the
Right Rev. Bishop Rix. of the Diocese of Caledonia, held a Confirmation Service for eight adult
candidates who entered the Church.
The Bishop's address, spoken in
simple language and quiet manner,
was most impressive. The service,
whioh was fully choral, was heartily entered into by all the congregation. The choir gave the anthem
"Lord we Pray Thee."
and tipped the scales at 95 pounds.
There is a bounty of $5.00 ou
timber wolves and if the survivor
is wise she will leave for more unfrequented parts
Excellent Entertainment
Given by Boy Scout
A Variety Show whioh was all
that the title implies, was presented by the Anyox Boy Scout Group
in the Reoreation Hall ou Friday,
May the 18th. before a full house.
The effort was made with the object of raising funds to assist in
taking the Scouts to summer oamp
at Tlell. on Queen Charlotte Island,
and proved a successful venture.
All the items on the lengthy
program were entertaining, from
the doings of the Wolf Cubs to the
''Jokes and Pokes" of two members
of the Chrysanthemum Coons.
Musical numbers were given by
Scouts Hubert Warden (Guitar)
and Wm. MoDouald (Mouth Organ)
Patrol Leader Cyril Watson sang
"Darkness on the Delta" and res'
ponded with a comic rendering
which extolled the virtues of a
paint called "Woedn" as the sole
covering of man.. As a triok expert Rover Dick Summers excelled,
mystifying the aritlience with-some
uncanny doings and performing
just sufficient of these to whet the
appetite for more.
A tableaux display by the Sea
Rovers was splendidly presented,
each number being performed in a
skilled manner. This was one of
the most popular items on the pro
gram. Messrs. Bam forth and
Blundell, of the Mine Minstrel
Troop, kept the audience in a con
tiuual state of laughter during
their well-presented number. Their
betting stunts brought down the
The tables were turned when
Scout Leslie Murdooh put Scoutmaster Gale—a tenderfoot for the
time being—through his pacings.
Songs and Shanties by the Sea
Rovers were given round the camp
fire, and Taps was sung by
the entire group. At this point
Mr. T. J. Kirkwood, on behalf of
the Anyox Branch of the Canadian
Legion, presented the Scouts with
a Memorial cheque, and Mrs. J.W.
Lang, Regent of the looal ohapter
of the I. O. D. E., handed to Mr.
Gale, on behalf of that body, a
cheque to assist in swelling the
summer camp fund. Accompaniments for the singing and also a
number of selections were played
by an orohestra composed of Miss
A. McLachlan, V. S. MoRae, J.
Buntain, and J. Reid.
Miss Esterbrook, who has been
sp?nding a holiday here with 'her
sister Mrs. Jackson, left on Wednesday for her home in Vancouver.
Large  Crowd   Attend
Opening Baseball
Officials and players in the
Anyox baseball League were greatly encouraged at the large number
of spectators at the opening game
on Tuesday last, between the Dynamiters and Oddfellows. In addition to seeing a fast, clean game,
they had the satisfaction of noting
some pleasing features.
Thanks to the Community
League, who have expended quite a
large sum of money on behalf of
the sport, the teams turned out
smartly uniformed, the Dynamiters
in grey and green and the Oddfellows in dark blue. The third team
in the League, the Elks, will make
their debut on Friday, when they
lock horns with the powdermen.
The A. C. L. have provided thej
antlered herd with fawn and purple outfits. The score-board has
been moved to a more prominent
position and nicely painted and the
grounds are in good shape.
The excellent game as an opener
and the keen interest shown by the
fans, speaks well for a good baseball
season. The Lodge teams should
each have a large following of fans
and the hillmen are assured of
strong support. Let all unite to
encourage this most popular game
by consistent attendance at the
league fixtures.
Young Anyox  Couple
Married On May
Mr. Henry McCartney
Is Leaving Anyox
After spending nineteen and a
half years- in Anyox, Mr. Henry
McCartney, old timer in the north,
will seek retirement in the south.
During his residence here Mr. McCartney has seen many developments, vicissitudes and changes in
the mining and smelting town of
His first venture to the north was
in 1898, when he went in the gold
rush from California to the Yukon.
After seventeen years in that country, spent chiefly around Dawson
and Atlin, he came to Anyox, so
that he has been in the north over
thirty-six years, and like many old
timers, can tell some stirring tales
of the old pioneering days. Mr.
McCartney' will leave Anyox on
June 4th. and contemplates a visit
to his old home in England before
finally settling down in the Vancouver district.
He is a member of the A. F. &
A. M., and also a charter member
of the Anyox Lodge, B. P. O. E.,
and will be missed by a host of
friends here, who nevertheless are
uniting in wishing him the best of
everything for the future. ,
A very p'retty wedding was solemnized in Anyox on Thursday,
May 17th. when Miss Ethel Peacock, daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
Aubrey Peacock, of Fort Fraser,
and formerly of Wiltshire, England
became the bride of Henry James
Griffin, of Fort Fraser. The event
took place at the home of Mr. and
Mrs. G. M. Lee at 7 o'clock p.m.
the ceremony being performed by
the Rev. A. Abraham-
Mrs. Lee was matron of honor,
and Mr. Lee gave the bride away.
The wedding marches were played
by Miss Barbara Lee. The bride
looked very charming in a pearl
grey gown with lavender lined
pleatings and gloves and shoes to
match. She carried a bouquet of
pale pink carnations. Miss ulenna
Lee who as bridesmaid, carried the
ring on a white satin cushion.
The room in whioh the ceremony
took plaoe was prettily decorated
with flowers and ferns providing a
colorful background for the picturesque wedding group. A wedding supper was afterwards served
only friends and relatives being
present. The bride's table was decorated in pink and white and
carried a handsome three-tier cake.
The usual toasts were honored.
The bride and groom are both
very popular in Anyox and were
the recipients of many tangible expressions of wishes for long life and
happiness. They will reside in
Dynamiters Win First
League Game
The ball proved mightier than
the bat at the opening tilt of the
Anyox Baseball League on Tuesday last, when the H. C. Dynamiters and Oddfellows tried iu
vain to make runs. The former
managed only two off Ferguson,
while Musser for the Lodgemen
managed to put a break iu the row
of goose eggs.
It was a gala night for both
pitchers. Cieslikowski was dynamite for the hillmen, with a lightning ball and an otitcurve that
confounded the opposition, and
Ferguson gave few chances. Me-
Closky got a lovely three-bagger
in the second, and Calderoni got a
two-base smack.
The situation was tense in the
seventh for the Lodgemen, who
needed one run to tie, thoy had the
bases loaded but could not make
the grade, although Norm. Roberts
made a great effort to get home

Copper Code Functions
In United States
The Miner, Vancouver
The code for the copper industry
in the United States was approved
on April 21st. and became effective
on April 26th. General Johnson
a statement to President Roosevelt
said that the copper industry faces
a situation in which if all the copper
mines in the country were to be
shut down for eighteen months the
available stocks of the metal now
above ground would be ample to
supply all estimated needs for the
period. "Though it is impossible
under present conditions to provide
for any but a slight increase in employment, the code conditions will
undoubtedly prevent the closing of
mines now in operation, avoid destructive price cutting, and at the
same time provide adequate control of prices in the public interest.
As of January 31, 1934, stocks of
copper amounted to about 775,000
tons. Substracting from these
stocks normal mill inventories and
future sales commitments, there
was approximately 450,000 tons of
free stocks on hand. Add production from scrap to the free stocks on
hand and there would be 575,000
tons of copper available at the end
of the next twelve months."
John D. Galloway Presented
With Silver Plate
The Silver Advocates Forced
Roosevelt's Hand
The Financial News
In moving to remonetize silver,
the Roosevelt administration is preparing to buy approximately 1,800,-
000,000 ounces of silver.
The move is directly inflationary
and is forced on the President by
the fact that the senate silver bloc
has been threatening to do serious
things to some of his other intended legislative steps because he first
rejected the silver proposal.
Wall Street obviously interprets
the action as further evidence of the
President's inability to control the
machinery which was started in
action against the advice ' the
financial community.
Interesting and possibly far
reaching results may be expected
now that the silver advocates have
carried the second line of Washington defences.
Representative collection of ore
samples is being sent by B. C.
Chamber of Mines to University of
Freiberg, Germany, from which a
request was received.

The annual dinner of the British
Columbia Division of the Canadian
Institute of Mining and Metallurgy
was held on May 11th. at the Terminal City Club. A feature of the
occasion was a presentation to Mr.
J. D. Galloway, who recently resigned as Provincial Mineralogist,
of a 200 ounce silver tray, the handiwork of Mr. Maurice Carmichael,
Victoria, and son of the former
Provincial Assayer. The presenta
tion was made by Mr. W. R. Wilson, president of the Crows Nest
Pass Coal Company, and he expressed the appreciation of Mr.
Galloway's long and friendly association with the mining profession
of the province, Mr. C. P. Browning, general manager of the Britannia Mining & Smelting Company,
presided at the meeting, which was
attended by over 50 members of the
Olof  Hanson Expected To
Receive Nomination
The executive of the Prince Rupert Liberal Association, at a meeting on May 8th. decided to recom-|
mend to the Skeena District Liberal
Association that a federal nominating convention be called at an early
date. Dr. J. H. Carson, president
of the local association, was in the
chair at the meeting.
The general expectation is that
Olof Hanson, M. P. for Skeena,
will be renominated.
Victoria Capital To Develop
Stewart Property
L. L. and H. Group, on Bitter
creek, Bear River section of Portland Canal district, has been bonded
by Victoria, B. C. interests. Property, which was formerly owned
by Bitter Creek Mines Ltd., has
three short tunnels, lower one of
which cut a 2; <t vein. Values
..re between $6 ai.d $8, gold at $20.
Premier Gold recently became interested in the property, but option
had bjen pledged.
Prices of All Metals Increased
Last Year
Increase of the price of gold has
been spectacular. In the past year
silver has advanced from 27 cents
to 46 cents per ounce; copper from
5 cents to 8 cents per pound, lead
from 3 cents to 4^ cents per pound;
zinc from less than 3 cents to 4^
cents per pound.
The export of gold bullion from
Canada in March, which amounted
to $70,054,663 in value, was large,
all going to the United States.
This compared with an export of
$3,024,308 in March last year.
Canada's first successful mining
venture was started in 1752 and it
kept on until 1883. It was the
mining of iron at Les Forges, near

but men ride wherever the Bun shines
and the Trail Riders
of the Canadian
Rockies, with a membership which girdles
the globe, are creating widespread interest with their planB
for their 1932 expedition from Banff to
Mount Assiniboine,
through some of the
raoBt beautiful country in the great mountains from which they take
their name. The famous peak, with its many adjoining lakes and valleys, was the focal point of the
1927 trail ride and this year's trip, starting on July
29, will follow generally the same lines, with nights
spent in camp, according to the best traditions of
the Order. Ample time will be given for exploring
the territory traversed, the ride occupying Ave dayB
and traversing Brewster and Allenby Creeks; Assiniboine Pass and the shores of Lake Magog to the
great mountain, which is the objective of the riders.
Saturn will be made through tbe Valley of the
Rooks; the Golden Valley; Citadel Pass and so
through Sunshine Camp to Banff once more. The
pictures shown above are distinctly interesting and
show Lt. Col. Phil Moore, president of the Trail
Riders, and Mrs. Moore, on camel-hack at the

Pacific liner "Empress of Britain", in strong contrast

They were: a 49 M inch muskalunge taken from the
French River by F. R. Spotts, of Houston, Texas,
weight, 85 pounds, seven ounces, girth, 26 inches. It
took nearly three-quarters of an hour to land this
beauty. A six pound speckled brook trout from the
Nipigon River caught by Edward Pohlman, of East
St. Louis, 111., 22 Ml Inches long and 14 inches In girth.
A blaok bass from the Devil's Gap Bungalow Cam*,
Lake of the Woods, four pounds, 1H ounces in weight,

Residents ot Panama Canal
Zone had their biggest thrill
since the "big ditch" was finished when the Canadian Pacitic
liner "Empress of Britain" passed through the canal in April.
As the largest vessel ever to navigate the canal the Empress received unusual attention. In fact
as far as canal officials were
concerned, she was viewed with
furrowed brows. The lock-keepers, if they wanted to, could have
jumped aboard her, so tightly
did she fit.
Farrowed brows marked Chief
Officer, W. G.-Busk-Wood, R.N.R.,
of the Empress of Britain. As
the "Mate- he is responsible for
her gleaming white painted sides
and bets were freely offered that
he would have to put men over
the side when she reached Cristobal to re-paint. Scotchmen
amongst the 481 passengers covered every bet—they had faith in
the Scottish caution of Commodore S. G. Latta, her commander.
It was a tight fit, but never a
scratch of paint!
The photograph shows the
Empress of Britain entering the
Pedro Miguel lock. Her passengers crowded the decks to
watch the spectacle and so interesting was this feat of navigation that Chief Steward Frank
Mobs complained that for the first
time in four and a half months
they forgot to eat!
