Liberal Meeting held
at Alice Arm
Fred Stork and F. T. Congdon
Addresses Meeting.
Mr. Fred. Stork, Liberal candidate, opened the political campaign
in this district, last Saturday,
when he and Mr. F. T. Cjongdon,
addressed an enthusiastic and well-
j attended meeting at the Alice Arm
1 Hotel.
The meeting was advertised for
1 Friday evening, but owing to the
rough weather prevailing on the
coast, the party did not arrive
from Prince Rupert until the
following morning.
The meeting was called at 2 p.m.
and was a great success, the hall
i being crowded to capacity.
Mr. C. P. Riel was in the chair,
and introduced our future member,
Mr. Fred Stork, to the audience.
Mr. Stork gave a short, snappy
speech. The first subject he dealt
with, being the' management, or
rather the mis-management by the
late government of the National
Railroads.
He stated that Mr. MacKenzie-
King is a born leader and the best
the liberal party could possibly
have and that they were fortunate
in having snoh a man to lead them
to victory.
Mr. Stork stated that Meighen
is working for no one but the big

Ore Discov*
ered on Toric
Ore has again been found on the
Toric by Mr. Gus Strombeek, in
driving a tunnel on the upper
workings. He did not reach the
hanging, wall owing to the depletion of his supplies. No more work
will be done on the Toric this year.
The high grade showings discover-
? ed last summer were to have been
developed this winter, but owing
to the fact that it is impossible to
transport supplies over the Dolly
Varden Railroad, owing to the
wash-outs caused by the recent
floods,   this  will   not    be    done.
Another mine laying idle for lack
of transportation.
Sintering Plant at
Anyox again Starts
The sintering plant at Anyox,
resumed.operations on the 1st. of
the month. Mr. Geo. Lee is in
charge, and fifteen men are being
employed.
Granby Co. may build
. an Extra Dam
A water expert, working for the
Granby Co. has been busy during
the past week or two investigating
the feasibility of erecting an additional dam. It is understood that
the new dam, should it be built,
will be some distance above the old
one, and enough water will be
stored to carry over the winter
months.
Material
Arrives for Wharf
The S. S. Chilliwack, of the
Union Steamship Co. arrived on
Monday with the building material for the Alice Arm Wharf and
good head-way has been made by
Mr. Muse, this week, in its erection.
Twenty-two piles are in place and
the caps on. Good progress will
be made from now on.
Attacked by Eagle
on Larkum Island
Mr. Mike Thompkins, while
hunting on Larkum Island, this
week, was attacked by a large bald
headed eagle. After quite a
struggle Mr. Thompkins got the
best of the argument with his shot
gun. The brute measured eight
feet from tip to tip. Mike is quite
proud of his trqphy, and is having
the bird stuffed.
Mike thinks it is a wonderful
country round Anyox, for game.
He has brought home several fine
bags of ducks this season, including
all species'
Elk's Dance Held
at Anyox
The Elks monthly dance held
last Friday, was a decidedly
pleasant and successful affair. The
music was excellent, supplied by
the Harmony Four. Everyone
enjoyed it immensely and many
were the complimentary remarks
heard about the music.   .
Hallowe'en Dance
at Alice Arm
.   Given by Ladies of the
Local Council
The Dance given by the Looal
Council of Women, last Monday,
in the Hotel, proved to be a very
successful and enjoyable event.'
About seventy .people attended.
Mr. Geo. Bruggy was master of
ceremonies, and! the music was
supplied by Mrs, Falconer, Miss
Stanley and Messrs- Rogers and
Oatman,, The dance took the form
of a hard times one, and the prizes
donated for the moat appropriate
dress, were won by Miss B. Stanley
and Mr. Thos. B. Black. Miss
Sutilovich gave a recitation during
the evening. Several fines were
inflicted on those who insisted on
wearing silks and white collars.
Refreshments were provided by the
ladies.
Dolly Varden
Mine Closed Down
The Dolly Varden Mine closed
down last Monday. The immediate cause of the close-down was the
breaking of the big belt at the
power house. It has been uncertain for some time whether the
mine would' operate throughout
the winter. The bridges and
washouts on the railroad- have not
yet been repaired, and the only
means of transporting supplies to
the upper Kitsault, is by pack
horses. It is reported, that the
Dolly Varden may resume operations again this year, but no
definite policy has been decided on.
Armistice Day Celebration at Anyox
The Ex-service Men's Association
have plans well advanced for a big
celebration on November 11th.
Red poppies will be on sale on
the streets for the benefit of the
Belgian Orphan Fund. The people of Anyox are asked to support
this worthy cause by buying and
wearing these poppies in memory
of the fallen.
The Granby Co. have arranged
to observe a two' minutes silence
and a cessation of work, commencing at 11 a.m., this will also be
observed in the schools and it is
hoped the public will do likewise
wherever they happen to be.
The returned men will sit down
to a dinner in the Elk's Hall at 7
p.m. A good repast has been prepared, to be followed by toasts and
an appropriate programme. This
will be followed by a big dance in
the same building at 9 p.m.
Col C. W. Peck, Holds
Meeting at Alice A rm
Large Meeting Held at Unusual Hour
Col, C. W. Peck, accompanied by
G. Tite, G. Frizzell, and Capt. J. J.
Anderson, of Prince Rupert, also
Roy Mosely, of Stewart, arrived in
Alice Arm from Stewart, at 9
o'clock on Tuesday evening, fend
held an enthusiastic meeting at the
Alice Arm Hotel at 10 o'clock.
The extreme lateness of the hour
together with the hardest rainstorm of the season, failed to dampen the enthusiasm of the electors
of Alice Arm last Tuesday evening,
when they taxed the seating
capacity of the Hotel to the limit,
to hear Col. Peck speak on the
issues of the campaign.
Mr. T. W. Falconer, as chairman
in a few well chosen, words introduced Col. Peck, who expressed his
gratification and thanks for the
good turnout. He then went on
tp describe the ..efforts he hag^pivfe
forth on behalf of this constituency
during his past term of office, mentioning particularly the throwing
open of the rivers to white fishermen; the elimination of part of the
Oriental question by the reduction
of licences annually, the wharfs he
was instrumental in obtaining for
Alice Arm, Stewart, Sandspit and
other places. ' .
Col. Peck was very emphatic in
his belief in the future of this constituency and his ability to put
before the new government the
needs and wishes of the electorate.
Anyone attending the meeting
could not help being struck by the
evident honesty and sincerity of
Col. Peck's remarks. So refreshing from the usual fulsome promises and flatteries which we usually
associate with a political meeting.
After touching very rapidly on
one or two of the larger questions
affecting Canada today, the meeting closed with the singing of
"He's a jolly good fellow" and the
National Anthem.
Col. Peck intimated that if there
was the slightest possible chance
for him to visit Alice Arm again
l^efore election-day, he wonld*-eer—
tainly do so.
Owing to the lateness of the
hour we were not notified of the
above meeting and regret that it
was not reported more fully. The
report of Col. Peck's meeting at
Anyox on Wednesday, did not
arrive on Thursday's boat.—Ed.
Weekly Meeting of
the Anyox Community League

made, so a good time is in store for
the members of the League.
At the meeting of the Forum
Department on Saturday night,
for the purpose of organizing for

new books for the library, composed of: Mr. J, Pinder-Moss, Rev.

interests and that he was the man
that stifled free speech in Canada.
There is no doubt, he said, that a
change of government will take
place at the coming election, and
that the next government, will
without doubt, be Liberal, with
the Farmer party second and the
late government third.
Mr. Stork said, he would, if
elected, be anxious at all times to
take up any local problems with
the Federal government, which the
people of this district may bring
before him. He understood, that
at present there was a deadlock
between the Provincial and the
Federal Government, regarding the
Indian Resrve, and he would,
whenever the people of Alice Arm
wished, take the matter up with
Federal Government and allow the
reserve to be thrown open for
purchase.
Mr. F. T. Congdon, Ex-govenor
of the Yukon, was the next speaker arid in an eloquent address he
charged the late government with
reckless expenditure of the public
money, and gave an outline of the
methods employed by them since
the election of 1917..
Mr. Congdon, on rising, said: I
have been in the Yukon for twenty
years, and have pioneered in the
mining camps of that country, and
I am never happier than when
addressing an audience of miners
such as this is.
In referring to the late government, he said, that instead of being
the servants of the people as they
should be, they had ruled the people of Canada with an autocratic
rule, and they still wanted,to do it
now that the war was over. The
people were tired of it, and as they
could not learn better it was up to
the people of Canada to have a
house cleaning at the next election.
He criticized the war times election Act that was enacted at the
last election. An act that cancelled the vote of thousands of loyal
citizens of Canada and was done
simply for party purposes, to ensure the election of the government.
Mr. Congdon charged the government with the grossest expenditure
and stated that at the present
time the Canadian army comprised
3,800 men, 412 officers and 32
generals, and numerous other officials. There were, in Canada,»a
country of  less than ten million
population, twenty-one cabinet
ministers, and in the United States
with a population of 110 millions,
they managed to get along very
well with nine cabinet ministers.
He charged the government with
boosting favorites into official positions and the chief thing they did
was to draw their salary. Put a
new government in and clean up
the mess, Mr. Congdon said.
In regard to the tariff, about
which we hear so much from Mr.
Meighen, Mr. Congdon stated that
it was created in 1878 to protect
the infant industries of Canada,
and they are still crying for pap.
The conservative policy is, let the
manufacturers of Canada batten on
the public and get rich quick and
the liberal policy is; give them
enough protection to get started
but don't let them rob the people.
Mi1. Congdon stated that the big
firms make combinations to raise
prices, and then tell the people to
be patriotic and buy Canadian
made goods even if it did cost more.
He gave a few examples of the
tariff and said that 225 million
dollars worth of automobiles was
sold in western Canada each year,
and the same cars could be purchased in the United States for
150 million dollars. He gave several other instances of a like nature
and criticized the railroad policy of
the late government at considerable length.
The meeting closed with the
singing of the National Anthem
and Mr. Stork and Mr. Congdon
left at once, for Anyox where they
addressed a meeting in the evening.
LETTER TO THE
HERALD
Arrandale, B. C.
Oct: 31st, 1921
Dear Mr. Editor:
There are cooks and sea cooks,
sailors and land-lubbers, captains
and officers, stewards and pursers,
and there are gentlemen and others.
There are ships that sail, and
water wagons that are propelled
by the propeller, which same
vehicles go cruising around this
old B. C. coast in search of canned
fish or canned employees or any
other old thing, which might contribute to the cargo and the shipowners long stocking. ■, Strolling
on deck or in the depths below a.
promenading passenger may find
among the above mentioned sea
cooks, etc., many amiable and
pleasant gentlemen, in spite of
their humble garb, with its absence
of braid and brass, for it was whis
pered long ago Mr. Editor, (I heard
it myself,) that the CLOTHES do not
always make the Man. Then
again, the promenader may meet
one of the others, all sleek and fat
and brass-bound and not tall
enough to be called lanky, yet of
great and important rotundity,
seeking to create the impression de
luxe. Be not subdued by its appearance, however, Mr. Passenger,
for it is not old King Solomon
returned in his splendour, nor yet
the owner of the White Star Line,
or the Onion Line, but merely a
public Servant making a miserable
failure of acting the part of a public Duke.
Should this little hymn of praise,
meet its all-important gaze, I trust
that it will learn the lesson, to in
future use discretion.

The Man of the Hour
In this hour of Canada's most acute national
crisis, the country's greatest need is leadership—-not class leadership, not sectional
leadership, but NATIONAL leadership. A
pilot must be chosen'possessing the necessary courage, foresight, breadth of vision
and determination to lead the nation safely
out of the existing economic uncertainty.
And one man stands out head and shoulders above
all others as pre-eminently fitted for'the task.
Born on a farm near St. Mary's, Ontario, Arthur
Meighen is a true son of the people, a toiler who
has fought his way to eminence by sheer ability
and force of intellect. Entered Parliament in
1908; appointed Solicitor-General in 1914; Minister of the Interior in 1917; and Prime Minister
in 1920.
At the Imperial Conference he was acclaimed by
the Press of Great Britain as a great statesman,
as a strong, virile, vigorous personality—alert in
mind, keen and far-seeing in judgment, and with
a fearless determination to stand for the right.
Professor A. D. Skelton, of Queen's University,
and biographer of Sir Wilfrid Laurier, wrote of
the present Prime Minister : — "He has already
given proof of high administrative capacity. His
personal integrity is beyond question."
Of himself, Arthur Meighen said to his constituents the other day : — "You know where I stood
on this issue in 1908, in 1911, and as in 1911 I
stand torday."
