Celts Beat Rangers And
Win Football Cup
Unless a football season is carried
through to a successful conclusion
it is disappointing to the fans who
have followed it. and most unsatisfactory to the players. The present
season, however, was brought to a
glorious close by the replayed cup-
final on Thursday August 31st. between the Celts and Rangers, when
the former won 4 to 2. It was a
hard-fought battle, there being little
to choose between the two teams.
There was keen action and many
incidents, both sides keeping up a
strong pace until the final whistle.
Not one of the six goals scored gave
the custodians a chance.
Referee Webster handled the
game in an efficient manner. The
teams: Rangers, Hunter; Francis,
Hamilton; Galbraith, Ellison, Dodsworth; Pinckney, Buchanan, Ferguson, Donaldson, Peel. Celts:
Taylor; Currie, J. Gillies; Murray,
Williams, L. Gillies; Patrick, Buntain, Hawes, W. J. Johnston, H.
Johnston.
Moose   Labor Day  Dance
Enjoyed By Many
A most enjoyable affair was the
Annual Labor Day Dance held by
the Loyal Order of Moose in the
Gymnasium on Monday last. A
large number of danoers were
present and the hall was prettily
decorated. Excellent music was
provided by Harry Ward's Orches'
tra, and au appetizing supper was
served.
Golf Club Annual Social Is
Planned
With their usual thoroughness
and foresight, the officials of the
Golf Club have already arranged
for their annual social function.
This will again take the form of a
Card Party and Danoe, to be held
in the Elks' Hall on Friday October the 6th.
This event will mark the opening
of the sooial season here, and is
sure to be a most enjoyable affair.
Details will be announced later.

The Stump That Wasn't
Oh the eventful morning of the
openilig Of Ine' duck-shooting season, when some twenty sportsmen
cleared the Alice Arm flats of its
ducks and geese, a humorous incident took place. In the dim, ghostly light when stealthy preparations
were being made, one of the Gran
by officials whose judgement is usu
ally unerring, noted a stump, which
he decided would make an excellent
ambush. Approaching it carefully,
he was astonished to see it walk
away.    It was a bear!
Bowser Party Expected To
Place Candidate
J. E. Merryfield, provincial organizer for the Bowser non-partizan
movement was a visitor to Anyox
last week while the Canadian National Steamship was iu port. It
is Mr. Merryfield's strong opinion
that his party will plaoe a candidate in the field at the forthcoming
eleotion. Several names have been
considered, but no decision has
yet been made. It is expected,
however, that an announcement
will be made next week.
Mr. Arthur A. Todd created a
mild sensation among his many
friends when he arrived at Anyox
on Thursday with a bride. Mr.
Todd's friends were entirely unaware that he had joined the benedicts' ranks and hearty congratulations were tendered to him
throughout the day.
The wedding was solemnized at
Oxendan Presbyterian Church
London, England on Monday
August 14th. No elaborate celebrations were held, and the ceremony was attended only by relatives and intimate friends of the
bride and groom. Mrs. Todd's
former name was Miss Margaret
Pearce, and she was a resident of
London.
Mr. Todd left Anyox early in
June for holidays but did not disclose his destination. Tlie accidental meeting, however, with Mr.
Arohie Morton in London revealed
the extent of his travels to several
Anyox people.
This was Mr. Todd's first visit
to England and he thoroughly enjoyed it. He states that many
foreign tourists visited London this
year. He visited the big industrial
centres of the midlands and north,
and said that business there was
on the upgrade, especially in the
I
steel industry.

May Create New Gold
Standard of Over $30
Per Ounce
Vancouver Financial News
Stabilization of the price of gold
at some point between $30 and $35
by international action is forecast
as likely to take place before the
end of the year. A necessary preliminary to an international understanding regarding a new gold
standard would be abandonment
by France and associated countries
of their adherence to the old standard. There have been frequent
intimations recently that France
has oome around to the view that
the old gold standard must be
dropped and it is now freely predicted that France will make the
formal announcement during September.
Should France take this step the
way would be paved for international negotiations having in view
the adoption of a new gold standard in keeping with altered conditions. In this connection a price
level for gold at $30 or between
$30 and $35 is suggested as the
most likely outcome.
A significant move in this direction took place this week when it
was announced from Washington
that the world price of gold would
henceforth be available to United
States producers. Up to the present U. S. gold mines had been receiving the old standard price of
$20,67 per ounce for their output
whereas Canadian, South African
and Australian producers were
receiving the world price which, in
terms of Canadian currency
amounts at present to between $30
aud $31.
The procedure will be practically
the same as that followed by the
Canadian government. The seoretary of the treasury, William H.
Woodin will regulate sales of newly-mined gold. Sales may be
made, first to foreign purchasers
and second, to persons licensed to
acquire gold for use in the arts,
industries or professions. The new
order forbids acquisition of gold by
any person except a Federal Reserve Bank and requires a license
for acquisition, holding or earmarking of gold hereafter.
As a result of this new concession
there will be no neoessity for U. S.
gold producers to ship concentrates
or ores to Canadian smelters for
treatment in order to get the benefit of the world price but a certain
amount of gold ores will be shipped
New Report on Gold In
Canada Has Been Issued
A revised edition of a report on
"Gold in Canada" has just been
issued by the Dominion Depart'
ment of Mines. Impressed by the
unprecedented world wide interest
in the exploration for, and the pro
duction of gold, the Honourable
W. A. Gordon, Minister of Mines,
has thought it opportune that
Canada's present position as a producer should be more widely known.
The report furnishes a brief history; a record of annual production;
such details of cost as are available; and a description of mining
aud milling methods for eaoh property now in production. Iu addi
tion there are short discussions of
such topics as the physical and
chemical properties of gold; its
rarity and modes of ocourrence; the
history of its use; the gold standard; the history of the world's
producers; the types of ores from
which gold is produced; aud the
history of gold production in
Canada.
Copies of the report may be obtained from the Director. Mines
Branch, Department of Mines,
Ottawa.
Premier Co. Acquires More
Ontario Properties
Premier Gold Mines,Ltd., Canadian subsidiary of the American
Smelting & Refining Co. has acquired control of the Dwyer-Mc-
Phee property, adjoining the Beard-
more operation of the Northern

Mining Co. of New York. A crew
has started work on the Dwyer-
McPhee property, according to reports from Timmins, Ontario.
The gold held by the Minister of
Finanoe on July 31, was $71,929,-
298, whioh was $601,832 in exoess
of statutory requirements. The
Dominion notes in circulation totalled $182,113,558.

I know God fashioned little fields
So tbey would be
A comfort for old homely folk
Like you and me.
Small gardens with their fences
Snug and tight,
And tiny gates to shut us
From the night
But THIS He made with
Glory ln His veins,
This solitude, where Might
Forever reigns.
Molded the hills with glad
Exultant hands,
Shaping the valleys for
Wide pasture lands.
And so this towering peak
Forever hears,
Old finger-marks upon
Its rutted stairs.
And every shining height
Reflects the glow
Of some white virgin field
of drifted snow.
And over it he laid
With loving care,
The mantle ot His peace
Forever there.

CONQUERED  BY  A  SONG
Lands have been annexed by fire and sword, but
the west coast of Vancouver Island has the unique
distinction of being won by a song. The Spanish
admiral who led an expedition against it in 1790, so
charmed the heart of the warlike Maquinna, Lord
of the Nootkas, with a theme song which he caused
his merry men to sing over and over until the chief
was placated, that the Indian made him welcome
and gave him jurisdiction over the Sound and the
Islands. Since that date the coast of Vancouver
Island has become the rendezvous of tourists from
all over the world.   Within easy reach of Vancouver,
Victoria and Seattle, it yet offers the attraction of
territory quite unspoilt by industrialism and a paradise of beautiful scenery and fruitful sport. As it
was when the Spaniards first sighted it, so it virtually is today. Canadian Pacific steamships of the
British Columbia Coast Service travel up and down
this coast, and make it easily and comfortably accessible to visitor*. Lay-out shows Canadian Pacific
coastal vessel "Princess Norah" sailing among the
islands off the Vancouver Island coast; lower left

and Lady Willingdon and Captain Jack, Indian
