Repairs Commenced On
Railway and Trails
At Alice Arm
The summer programme of work
was commenced at Alice Arm this
week by the Department of Public
Works. Six men under the supervision of J. Graham are doing repair work on the Dolly Varden railway and three men are clearing
obstructions from the North East
Fork trail of the Kitsault River.
Present work on the Dolly Varden railway will consist of removing
obstructions, such as fallen trees
and rock slides, and also necessary
repair work on bridges and trestles,
so that the road can be used for
1 light traffic such as gasoline speeders and push cars. The railway is
ithe only means of transportation up
'the Kitsault Valley.
Wages have greatly reduced this
liyear. The sum of $2.80 per day
|;?or 8 hours is being paid.
No information has been received
I'egarding the extent of work that
Ijjvill be done in the district this year.
|The amount of work will depend
Rentirely upon how prompt the taxes
I are received by the government this
Rsummer. If taxes are slow to
[collect, the amount of money available for road work will be small.

Rev. Bushfield has been transferred to the United Church at
Stewart and Premier. In addition,
he will be the minister for the
Methodist Episcopal Church of
Alaska at Hyder. He will also
reside at Hyder, Alaska, as, although he is a Canadian, special
regulations will permit him to reside in Alaskan territory. His
position in that district will be a
most unique one.
Mr«. Cutler Winner of Golf
The weekly competition held by
the Ladies' Golf Club on Friday,
May 20th took the form of a "hid.
den hole" contest over nine holes.
Twenty-two players took part in the
competition, which was won by Mrs.
Cutler, Mrs. Wenerstrom being second. Theday was clear and bracing,
the course in good shape after the
recent heavy rains, and the competition was thoroughly enjoyed by all
who took part.
Empire Day Dance Was
Outstanding Success
The historic Empire Day Dance,
held on Monday the 23rd, under the
auspices of the I. O. O. F., was
attended by a large crowd, and was
as usual an outstanding success.
The gymnasium was beautifully
decorated in the national colors,
and the whole evening was one of
animation and gaiety. The music,
which was supplied by T. Stretton's
Orchestra, was most enjoyable, and
many of the numbers were encored
A delightful supper was served,
after which dancing continued without intermission till 3 a.m. It is not
often possible to hold dances on
evenings which are followed by a
holiday or lay-off day, and this fact
may account largely for the enjoyment of the guests on this occasion.
Beach Win First Base-
Ball Game
The first League Baseball game
of the season was played On May
24th, between the Mine and the
Bcajjfi, before - a large number of
spectators. The Beach won by 7
runs to 3, and considering that this
was the initial game of the season
some good ball was played.
The pitchers were Lazorek for
the Mine and Musser for the Beach.
Hits off Lazorek were seven and
Musser four. The teams were:
Mine, M. Chenoski, Fred White-
house, J. Lozorek, S. H.'Bartman,
F. Anderson, N. Roberts, T. Calderoni, F. Calderoni, G. Anderson,
Dyer.   Beach: J. McColl, R. Hardy,
G. Allan, A. McDougall, E. R.
Oatman, J. Buntain, Dan McDonald, A. Dwyer. Umpires were J.
J. Cody and R. E. Hopkinson.
First Aid Competition Proves
Very Interesting
An interesting First Aid Competition between teams representing
the Mine and the Beach was held
on May 24th, at the ball park. The
weather was clear and sunny, and a
large < crowd watched the various
proceedings. There were two teams
each from the Mine and Beach.
Two problems were submitted
and competed for, the men from
the Mine winning one and the Beach
men the other. A very small number of points separated the teams
in both problems. The judges, Drs.
Learoyd and Lang, expressed their
gratification at the splendid work

Empire Day Is Loyally
Celebrated At Alice
In regard to patriotism to the
Province, the Dominion and the
Empire, Alice Arm stands second
to none. Although only a small
community tucked away among the
rugged mountains of the north
coast, Empire Day was celebrated
as loyally and patriotically as any
town or city in the Dominion.
Silver may be down to 28 cents an
ounce, and copper to 5 cents a
pound, but the spirit of the hardy
pioneers of Alice Arm is as high as
The celebration commenced with
field sports in the afternoon, followed by a baseball game. In the
evening the tennis court was the
centre of attraction, and at 9 p.m.
a big dance was held.
All the children Of the town were
on hand at 2 p.m. to take part in
the various events, and many adults
were equally anxious to show their
skill and speed on the sports field.
The day was showery, but not
sufficiently to marany of the sports
and the entire programme was
carried out without a hitch. Some
keen contests were witnessed.
Following is a list of the prize
Girls under six, i Flora Graham,
2 Mary Nona Smith.

The baseball game between the
Wildcats and Tigers attracted a big
crowd of fans. It was the first
game of the season, but that did
not stop either team from piling up
a string of runs. The score was
15 all and gambolling round the
bases was the chief recreation.
The game was, however, full of
thrilling events and both teams
tried their hardest to emerge victorious.
W. M. Cummings efficiently
handled the game as umpire.
The teams were: Wilcats: Lome

Celts Defeat Mine In
First Soccer Game
A good gathering of football enthusiasts witnessed the game between the Celts and the Mine,
played on Tuesday evening, May
For the first game of the season
the footballers put; up an excellent
showing. A number of changes
have taken place in the ranks of
both teams, the Celts being strengthened by the inclusion of several
players from the ranks of last year's
Smelter team, and by two players
from the Mine team last year, who
are now located at the Beach. The
Mine team is also changed considerably. A nagging wind which blew
diagonally across the field did much
to spoil direction, but some excellent football was seen, the teams
appearing to be very evenly matched. For the winners, goals were
scored by Arthur Horner and Henry
Deeth, while Don Morrison notched
a fast one for the Mine.
Schools Visited By I. O.D.E.
On Empire Day
On Empire Day, Monday the 23rd,
the I. O. D. E. paid their annual
visit to the schools of Anyox. Each
pupil was presented with a ribbon
of the historic colors of the Empire.
At both schools Mr. Ed. Ashton
made a memorable speech, his subject—the national colors of red,
white and blue—being inspiring as
well as educational.' At the high
school the prizes won in the Empire
Daycompetitions inaugurated by the
I. O. D. E. were presented to the
successful contestants. The visitors composed a very representative
number of members of the local

by practically all those of the tow n
who include dancing as one of their
pastimes. Music was furnished by
the Alice Arm orchestra, and they
allowed no pause for the dancers.
Everyone was in a happy holiday
mood and always ready for more.
The floor was in splendid condition,
and this, combined with the good
music, made the dance a great
success. It was one of the most
enjoyable dances held for a long
time and was a fitting climax to the
day's celebration

On Tuesday last the Dominion
of Canada, from the rugged shores
of Nova Scotia to the fit clad
mountains of the west coast of
Vancouver Island celebrated
Empire Day. May 24th. is the
birthday of that illustrious monarch,
Queen Victoria, and the day was
set aside some years ago for a
public celebration in order to keep
the memory of the vast Empire in
the minds of all Canadians. Every
city and hamlet throughout the
Dominion, from the Atlantic to the
Pacific, and from the United States
boundary to the Arctic Circle,
spontaneously celebrates our
Empire connections each year.
As good Canadians, we show our
pride in forming a part of the
British Empire by a general rejoicing, and as the years pass the
enthusiasm continues undimished.
During the past three years, of the
general world-wide depression, we
have been fortunate in being one
of the commonwealth of nations
and dependencies that form the
Empire, and all signs point that we
shall reap even greater benefits in
the near future, now that the
Mother Country has adopted a
tariff on many imported goods of
foreign manufacture, and at the
same time giving those countries
that form the Empire extensive
Sherritt-Gordon    Will
Close Down Mine
Next Month
Directors of Sherritt-Gordon, at
a meeting last week, decided to
suspend operations for at least 90
days, beginning in June. It was
stated that mine has produced and
sold copper so far at a profit but
cannot do so under existing conditions. Operations will be resumed
as soon as the copper market shows
signs of definite improvement. An
official statement was issued as
'Considering the very disorganized situation in the copper market
and the fact that there is only a
nominal market at less than six
cents per pound, the directors ol'
the Sherritt Gordon Mines Limited
have decided to suspend operations
during the month of June for at
least ninety days.
'The mine has produced and sold
copper at a profit to date but can
not do so under existing conditions.
"The directors are forced to take
this action as they cannot afford to
jeopardize the liquid position.
"As soon as the oopper market
shows signs of definite improvement
operations will be resumed."
Lumber Exports To Australia
Show Increase
Monoton, N. B., May 21—Since
the Canadian—Australian trade
agreement came into eflect last
year there has been an increase in
the imports of lumber from Canada
into Australia from approximately
26 to 76 per cent, according to the
Natural Resources Department of
the Canadian National Railways.

The final adjustment in regard
to Empire preference will be settled at the Imperial Conference to
be held at Ottawa in July. If a
policy of give and take is adopted
by each country, all will benefit.
If each one selfishly wishes to
impose their goods on the other
without taking a fair amount of
goods in exchange, no one will
benefit. International trade is
simply an exchange of goods.
One country can not sell to the
other without buying a like amount.
If the Canadian representatives
enter the Imperial Conference with
this policy of give and take no
difficulty should be experienced in
quickly reaching an agreement.
We have enormous quantities of
goods for export that Great Britain
needs, and we can use a vast
amount of the Motherland's manufactured goods. In the past we
have sold our goods to Great
Britain and with the money they
paid us bought what we needed in
the United States. The economic
condition of the world is forcing a
change, and in future we must buy
from whom we sell to or our export trade will show a serious

easiest way to get a living is to i

British Columbia was the leading producer
of Silver, Lead and Zinc.
In this Province, 45 per cent, of Canada's
silver, 97 per cent, of the lead, and 93 per
cent of the zinc were produced.
British Columbia has produced over $1,260,-

Birth of Mining In B.C.

Despite the belief that gold was
first mined in British Columbia by
placer miners in 1858 and the
following year, it is a fact that gold
was mined from a lode deposit six
years earlier. This statement is
contained in a book on lode gold
deposits just issued by J. E. Galloway, provincial mineralogist. He
asserts that in 1852 Captain Wm.
Mitchell went with a party of the
Hudson's Bay Company's brigant-
ine "Una" to Mitchell Harbor on
the northwest ooast of Moresby
Island in the Queen Charlottes for
the purpose of mining a gold-quart/
vein whioh bad been reported by
Indians in 1851. ,Ho took out
more than $1000 worth of ore from
this vein, but his attempts to bring
it away were frustrated by the
Indians who stole it as fast as he
could oolleot it, and the party had
to return to Victoria empty hand

TODAY it is $635 per capita.
With one exception, Canadians are now
the highest insured people in the world.
The Sun Life has played a leading part in
fostering this thrift in the Canadian people
and in protecting Canadian homes.
