Large Number Enjoyed
Annual Hospital
Responding well to the appeal of
the ladies of the Hospital Auxiliary,
a large crowd attended the annual
Hospital Dance in the Gymnasium
on Monday last. The function was
in every way enjoyable. Contributing largely to the entertainment
was the splendid display of dancing
given by the pupils of Mrs. V. S.
This included a very effective
Spanish Dance given b\ Barbara
Lee, the Misses Cavers, and May
Barclay; a tap dance, nicely executed by a group of young ladies,
and the graceful "Kiss Waltz" by
Mrs. G. S. MacDonald and Miss
Vera Eve.
Another feature was the giving
away of prizes to the holders of
certain lucky admission tickets
The first prize, a handsome coffee
pot presented by the Super-health
Aluminum   Co., was won by  W.
I Cavers Jnr., and the 2nd., 3rd. and
4th. prizes, each a bag of (lour,
were won by H. W. Mahler, J.
Shields, and Alfred Waters.     En-
| joy able music was furnished by the
Merrymakers'   Orchestra,    and   a
' delightful supper was served.
Mr. Edwards Assumes Charge
Of Bank of Commerce
Mr. D. M. Sinclair, manager of
the Anyox Branch of the Canadian
Bank of Commerce for the past four
years, has been transferred to the
Bank of Commerce at Williams
Lake, and left on Wednesday's boat
for that point. His successor is
Mr. F. C. O. Edwards, from Vancouver, and formerly of Princeton,
B. C. Mr. Edwards, together with
his son, Master M. Edwards, arrived in Anyox on Monday. Mr.
Sinclair was very much respected
in Anyox, and the best wishes of
all his friends go with him in his
new appointment.

Plans Being Made For
Alice Arm Christmas
At a meeting of the Alice Arm
School Board held on Wednesday
evening, permission was granted to
Mr. A. C. Ironside, to train the
children for a Christmas concert,
should it be found feasible to hold
the concert in connection with a
Christmas Tree. In regard to the
latter it was the opinion of the
School Board that the best means
of elicting information as to the
wishes of residents of the town regarding a children's entertainment
and Christmas tree was to call a
meeting of the ladies. A meeting
will therefore be held at the Club
House on Monday afternoon at
3 p.m. and all those interested in
providing an evening's enjoyment
for the children during the Christmas festive season are requested to'
Alice Arm Celebrated
With Dance
A five piece orchestra; a large
crowd; a good dancing floor, and
tasty refreshments were outstanding features of the Hallowe'en
dance held at the Alice Arm Hotel
on Saturday evening under the
auspices of the Alice Arm Athletic
Everyday cares were relegated
to the background, and Mr. Gloomy
Outlook was nowhere in evidence.
From the commencement until the
strains of Home Waltz beckoned
the happy dancers homeward the
floor was filled throughout the
The outstanding feature of the
evening was undoubtedly the
efficiency of the newly formed
Alice Arm orchestra. Their delightful music was the cause of
many favorable comments and it
was due to their efforts that the
dance was such a great success.
It is very possible, that due to
the encouragement given to the
Athletic Association by the excel-
Unit number attending on Saturday, that another dance will be
held in the near future.
Mr. and Mrs. Austin Lindgren,
who went to Vancouver on a honeymoon trip, will probably be a little
delayed in their return to Anyox
owing to the fact that Mrs. Lindgren was taken ill and had to be
operated on for appendicitis. Latest reports indicate that she is
recovering rapidly.

The Government Relief
Camp Closed On
The Government relief camp at
Alice Arm was closed on Monday
evening. The shutdown was entirely unexpected and no official reason
was given. The cause is no doubt
due to the fact that amicable arrangements have not yet been
reached with the Federal Government in regard to the amount of
money to be expended on relief
work throughout the province.
Latest advices from the south stated
that the Federal Government considered the relief work programme
of British Columbia too elaborate.
The sudden shutdown caused
great disappointment throughout
the district, and it is hoped that
work will be resumed at an early
date. Those having homes in the
district were sent home, and those
without homes are being cared for
at the camp.
The shutdown on Monday was
general throughout the province.
It is not expected to be of long
duration. If it w> a hardship will
be imposed on many local men.
Celebrate Armistice Anniversary by Dancing
The big annual Armistice dance
will be held this year on Wednesday November Hth. in the Gymnasium.
Thirteen years ago on that date
the carnage and suffering ceased on
a dozen battle, fronts, and on the
high seas, and the greatest armed
conflict the world had ever experienced passed into history, and the
defeat of the Central powers assured
us our freedom from their ambitious
rulers. Celebrate, therefore, the
anniversary of this big event and
show your loyalty and thankfulness
by attending the dance on Wednesday evening. You will enjoy yourself, forthe veterans of Anyox as
entertainers or soldiers are unbeatable.

As Remembrance
The Federal Government has
arranged for a national legal holi •
day to be observed on November
11th. This will be known as
"Remembrance Day." Wednesday

the sacred character of the day is
fully preserved, and every precaution taken to prevent it becoming a

No More Football Games
Will Be Played
This Year
The football season has evidently
drawn to a close, but unfortunately
without a consummation of the
League Series which has been running all summer.
Two or three circumstances were
responsible for this, one being the
Prince Rupert fixtures, which shut
out local football for two weeks,
while the nights steadily drew in.
Another was our old friend Jupe
Pluvius. When a lay-off day came
and the boys were ready to play the
grounds were very, very moist.
However, the Football Cup Series
was completed, and the Cup won
by the Smelter team.
In reviewing the past season we
are glad to note two things: that
football was very well patronized,
and that the game was well played.
The results of the Prince Rupert
games is a proof of the ability of
the Anyox boys. We are also
pleased to note excellent spirit prevailing among all the boys of the
football fraternity.
We understand there is a project
afoot to hold a banquet to which all
local footballers will be invited,
when the pas.t will be reviewed and
the future anticipated. This interesting event will serve to cement
friendships and place this "king of
sports" on a more sure and certain
basis in Anyox than ever.
Celts' Basketball Team Win
From Store
A schedule Senior League game
was played on Wednesday between
the Celts and the Store, the former
winning by 20 to 15. The Store
were handicapped by the fact that
that they were without spares, the
five players having to play through
the whole session. Despite this,
however, they put up an excellent
game. J. Lazorek was the capable
Canadian Copper Production
Shows Increase
Ottawa—Canada's copper production in August was 27,159,496

Germans Abandon Salt Water
Gold Scheme
The fantastic scheme of German
scientists to pay Germany's reparation debt with gold from the
ocean has been abandoned. For
more than eight years Professor
Wilhelm Schlenk of the chemical
institute of the Berlin university
revealed, German scientists carried
on extensive research in all the
oceans of the world in an attempt
to extract gold from seawater.
''Our last hope of winning gold
from sources other than mines has
been definitely abandoned," Professor Schlenk declared.

Vanderhoof. There it is the intention of wintering the stock.
After completing arrangements in
connection with the horses Messrs.
Crawford and Whitely expect to
visit Prince George before returning which they expect to do in
about two weeks' time.
"Yes, sir: I spent $25,000 on my
daughter's education, and now
she's gone and married a fellow

Canada Is The World's
Second Gold
Added incentive given the gold
mining industry by the drop in
production costs is expected to   result in an  output for 1931 being
the highest for the past 15 years,
according to leading mining authorities.    Every important producing country   except   the   United
States has increased its output of
gold.      The estimated  1931 pro.
duction   is   placed   at   21,000,000 W
ounces valued  at    approximately
$400,000,000 compared  with    20,
150,000 ounces in  1930, Canada,
South Africa, Australia are principally responsible for the increase.
Canada is placed well ahead of
United States and second only  to
South Africa in   a table showing
estimated    world   production   for
1931, prepared  by S. D.  Strauss
and appearing in the current issue
of the Engineer and Mining Journal.     Even should  the output of
Philippine Islands be included with
that of United  States, the Canadian output is expected to be 425,-
000 ounces greater, according to
these figures.

Coal This Year
Winnipeg—Residents of Ontario
are this year looking toward the
prairie coal mines with greater interest than usual if October ship
ments of coal are an indication.
According to T. P. White, superintendent of car service for the
Canadian National Railways, a
total of 85 cars of coal were shipped to Ontario in the first three
weeks of Ootober, as compared
with 15 cars for the entire month
of October, 1930. The majority of
those shipments came from Drum-

Glasgow Favors B.  C. Fir
For Buildings
G. B. Johnson, Canadian Trade
Commissioner in Glasgow advises
that the corporation there has de
cided that much of tlie lumber to
be used in future in its housing
schemes is to be of British Colum
bia fir. Five or six years ago
was found that Glasgow, with
population of about 1,250,000
needed some 70,000 new houses.
To meet this demand thousands of
new homes are being constructed
every year, of which at least half
are being put up by the corporation itself and the rest by private
builders. In its preference for
B. C. timber Glasgow is following
the example of the London County
Council, and Inverness is also considering a similar move.
