The Great Russian
Famine
The latest news from the (amine
stricken districts of Russia is that
conditions there are rapidly getting
worse and it is estimated that at
least 10,000,000 to 15,000,000
people will die. Nothing can save
them. The whole civilized world
is now realizing the awful catastrophe that is being enacted in
Russia and every country is rushing
in food supplies of all kinds,
medicines, clothes, etc. in order to
relieve the terrible suffering and to
save as many as possible of the
little children.
Not since the "Black Death"
swept Europe in the Fourteenth
Century, taking a toll of 22,000,
000 lives in a single year; has such
a horrible calamity threatened the
world as now is taking form in the
famine stricken regions of the
Volga Valley in Russia. To add
to the horrors of starvation, typhus
has made its appearance and unless unchecked will sweep Russia
and spread throughout Europe.
The people of the famine stricken
districts have suffered terrible hardships since Russia declared war
on August 1st, 1914. At the
declaration of war every able-
bodied man was drafted into the
army and all farm horses were
requisitioned for military purposes.
Following the Armistice of 1918,
the Kolchack, Denekine and other
armies over-ran the country and
laid it waste with fire and sword,
and to complete the misery of the
inhabitants the great drought
commenced in April, 1921 and
for seven months not a drop of
rain fell, and the Volga Valley
which comprises 600,000 square
miles and is the great grain pro<
ducing district of Russia, was a
burnt up waste, with 25,000,000
people facing starvation. Millions
have died and millions more will
die. The great effort now is to
save the little helpless children and
to stop the spread of typhus and
other diseases that is sweeping off
the population at the rate of over
50,000 per day.
Geological Map of Upper
Kitsault Now Available
A geological map on , a scale of
3000 feet to I inch of the upper
Kitsault Valley, British Columbia,
has just been published. It includes the Dolly Varden mine and
is intended to accompany a report
by G. Hanson. Although the
report is not yet published a copy
of tho map may be had by applying to the Director, Geological
Survey, Ottawa.
Beggars Ball at Anyox
Lots of Fun Provided by
Dancers
The Beggars Ball, given by the
Anyox Community League, on
Friday, March 31, was one of the
most : mirth provoking events in
the way of a ball that has ever
been seen in this district.
The time worn excuse for not
attending would not hold water
on this particular occasion, because
all that was required to make a
costume was a coal sack or a bath
towel. Some of the characters
were very cleverly carried out,
especially that of the Rashleigh
sisters as " An old blind lady and
boy escort," arid they had everyone
guessing until unmasking time.
Mr. and Mrs. Kribbs and Mr. F.
Miller were the judges, and they
had an unenviable task in selecting
the prize winners, who were:
Ladies: Mrs. H. O. Jones, as
"Mrs. Wiggs of the cabbage
patch," Miss R. Champion, original costume, "Dress of bath towels"
Miss V. Rashleigh, "Old Blind
Beggar Lady."
Gentlemen: J. Munro, "Hobo,"
J. Mahoney, "Highlander in burlap
kilts," Angus McKenzie 'scarecrow'
Capt. Thomson Pilots
Oil Tanker to Anyox
Capt, Thomson, who resided in
Anyox for nearly three years, paid
a visit to town on Friday, Maroh
31, piloting the Standard Oil
Tanker, S. S. "J. A. Moffatt," of
Richmond, California. Master of
whioh is Capt. Dan Thomson,
senior. The J. A. Moffatt is a
10,000 ton ship and carries a crew
of 35 men. She has a capacity of
60,000 barrels. She unloaded
35,000 barrels at Prince Rupert in
24 hours on the way up and
brought in 26\000 barrels for the
Granby Co., which was unloaded
in 15 hours. While in port, Capt.
Thomson was busy renewing old
acquaintances. It was the third
anniversary of the day he arrived
in Anyox to take the .position of
Port Capt. for the Griffiths Line.
When leaving at 2 o'clock in the
morning he gave the town a farewell salute with the whistle that
woke half the camp.
RE
SPECIAL TIMBER

I SIDE-LIGHTS ON THE
RUSSIAN FAMINE
The United States government
Jiaa appropriated $20,000,000, and
shipments of grain are already on
! ohe way.
The American Relief Commission is feeding at present somewhere
in the neighbourhood of 1,000,000
Children in the Volga valley, but
there are 10,000,000 to be fed if
ieath is to be cheated.
The original area of the famine
was thirteen provinces which were
'[totally without harvest on account
pf drought. This area was" 800
miles long and 400 miles wide.
This area has continually enlarged
owing to neighbouring areas consuming the semi-famine harvests
jthey gathered. The area of the
famine by February 1st. 1922 comprised a population of 33,000,000
people.
Within twenty years there have
jbeen four great famines in Russia,
jthose of 1891,1898 and 1911.
Besides  feeding   the   starving
millions, grain has to be provided
|for  the  spring sowing,   draught
; horses have to be replaced as these
have long since been devoured.
The Canadian government does
not feel justified oiffioially in appropriating public monies for this
relief work, unless the move is first
supported by voluntary subsorip-
i fcioris on the part of the people of
i Canada.
The government has the assurance of Lord Weardale—Chairman
of the British Fund—of Dr. Nansen,
International High Commissioner
of Relief in Russia—and Mr: Herbert Hoover, ou behalf of the
United States, has also given
similar assurance—that all foods
sent to the famine districts are
carefully guarded and reach their
destination intact.
Ten million little children need
food.   Will You Help.?
EDITOR GETS, INTO
TROUBLE
They tell a lot of tales on the
editors, but this is a new one: The
editor of a Kansas paper went to
attend a party given by one of his
neighbours, where just a few weeks
before the home had been blessed
with a new baby. The hostess
met him at the door and after the
usnal salutation, he asked after the
baby's health. The lady was hard
of hearing, had a bad'oold, and
thinking he was asking about herself, answered that although she
usually had one every winter, this
was the worst one she had ever
had, it kept her awake at night a
great deal, and at first confined her
to her bed. Then noticing that
the editor was acting very strangely, she said she could tell by his
looks and actions tjiat he was
going to have one just like hers,
and she asked him to come in out
of the draft and sit down.
