So many excellent floats and original ideas were forthcoming at the

Anyox Young People In
Boating Adventure
But for the pluckiness of the
male member of the party, a pleasure
cruise round the harbour in the
gasboat Rover, on Tuesday evening
the 3rd! might have ended somewhat differently. The boat, in
charge of Bruce Loudon with two
lady passengers, ran on to a sandbank in front of the concentrator.
The tide was ebbing, so a dismal
wait of some hours faced the stranded trio. However, Bruce, who is
a strong swimmer, promptly swam
to the boat float, which was a considerable distance away. He secured a boat and soon had his lady
friends safe on terra firma once
Mrs. P. Curti and children left on
Monday for a holiday to Vancouver.
Bob Pickton Drowned
In Rivers Inlet
Was Local Amateur Boxer
Robert William (Bob) Pickton, of
Anyox, met his death by drowning
in Rivers Inlet on June 2?th. while
on a fishing trip with his brother-in
-law, Wm. Emerton, of Sapperton.
They were sitting in the cabin of
their boat when Bob said he would
go and look at the nets. A few
minutes later Mr. Emerton heard a
cry for help, but when he reached
the deck of the boat his brother-in-
law had disappeared. Bob was
well known here as an amateur
boxer, having taken part in the last
two fight cards held at Anyox.
He was of a quiet unassuming nature and numbered many friends at
the Hidden Creek Mine, where he
was employed.

Dr. J. T. Mandy Favors
Transportation Facilities
For Kitsault Valley
Dr. J. T. Mandy, in his introductory remarks regarding the Alice
Arm section in his report to the
Minister of Mines published recently, stresses ' the vital necessity of
repairing the Dolly Varden Railway.    His report is as follows:
"Although the Alice Arm section
has been dormant from an operating standpoint, some very useful
work has been done by prospectors
on several claims, particularly on
the Tyee, Highland, and Summit
groups. The gold possibilities of
the west side of the upper Kitsault
valley have become more definitely
apparent, especially on the Home-
stake group, where sampling is reported to show good gold values
across appreciable widths. Plans
are being made for further development in the spring. With a stable
and reasonable price for silver, the
many promising properties in the
Alice Arm area are certain to attract attention.
"During the period of recent inactivity in this area the Dolly Varden Railway has been unfortunately
neglected in the matter of required
maintenance and repair. This railway is the main artery of transportation into and along the Kitsault
River valley and from its trails radiate to many promising prospects.
From its upper terminus a good
road leads to the upper Kitsault
valley and lateral trails serve several promising prospects, The
railway artery is the only present
means of transportation for the
Kitsault River valley and its upkeep
and availability is vital to activities
in this area. It is conseqnently
urged that this railway be kept in
an efficient condition of repair and
the right of way cleared of ingrowing brush and other periodical
Record Profit For Pioneer
Gold Mines
Pioneer Gold Mines of B.C. Ltd.
reports gross production for June
at §259,200. Expenses were $69,-
100, leaving net before taxes, depreciation and depletion at $190,-
100. This compares with $187,100
net profit in May and with $183,000
in April. Pioneer continues to establish new high records month
by month. Sinking of No. 2 shaft
to open up six new levels is proceeding steadily.
The Dionne Quintuplets
Create Good Telegraph
The five little Dionne sisters, although only a month old on June
28, have had more press material
written about them than the most
sensational "story" to break in
'Canada. When the quintuplets
arrived to grace the humble farm
home of Mr. and Mrs. Oliva Dionne
of Corbeil, Ontario, on May 28,
special press and news syndicate
writers were rushed to North Bay.
In the first two weeks, the Canadian National Telegraphs handled
more than 100,000 words written
about the babies, or over 100 columns of solid type.
While other events have had
bigger single press coverage, records show that in no case has the
sustained interest been protracted
over such a period, and many of the
correspondents and special writers
are still "covering" the story.
Apart from this voluminous newspaper file, more than 300 telegrams
were also sent by the Canadian
National Telegraphs and a far
greater number received.
C. N. Railways Revenue
Show Increase
The gross revenues of the all-
inclusive Canadian National Railways System for the week ending
June Hth. 1934, were $3,144,007,
as compared with $2,889,439 for
the corresponding period of 1933,
an increase of $354,568.
The Department of Agriculture,
Victoria, at the end of June estimated the Okanagan apple crop as
4,364,875 boxes, slightly larger
than that harvested last year.
Precious  Metals  Occur In
Big Nickel Mines
With continued prosperity in the
nickel industry Canada is capable
of supplying the major part of the
world demand for platinum and its
allied metals, according to a report
"Platinum and Allied Metal Deposits in Canada," issued by the Bureau of Economic Geology, Department of Mines, Ottawa. Cost of
production in Canada of platinum
and related metals is at present
well below that of most producing
The timber license moratorium
given by the Provincial Government
for the payment of licenses on
standing timber expired on July 1st.
It is anticipated that about 2,000
licenses held by private interests
will revert to the Crown.

Rocky Mountains Are Ideal Holiday Land
eauty unrivalled, health-giving altitudes, all tho
1 comforts that modern ingenuity can devise and
"something to do" all the time await the army of
travellers from all over the world, which annually
invades the glorious Canadian Rockies through the
Banff Springs Hotel and the Chateau Lake Louise.
These stately up-to-date hostelries, which open on
May 15 and June 1, respectively, are not only key-
points to the most beautiful mountain territories in
the world, but are, themselves, located in settingB of a
beauty which has to be seen to be truly appreciated.
On the main line of the Canadian Pacific Railway,
which owns and operates them, they are equipped
not only to be "homes from home" to the travelling
public and holiday-seekers in the generally accepted
sense, but to furnish entertainment lor their guests in
many and varied ways.   Auto drives, trail-rides, boating,
fishing, swimming, golf, tennis, hiking and mountaineering,
to say nothing of the famous Indian Days and the Highland
Gathering, are all part of programs which years of experience
have brought to perfection. Experts in all lines are in attendance
to be of service to the hotels' guests and real cowboys, red-coated
"Mounties" and true Stoney Indians lend color to a hundred
varift'ons of uniquely picturesque scenes.   There is never a dull moment, at
Ef.nfi or Lake Louise. There ia something for every taste and the rounding
r ft of full days by dancing in cool and spacious ball-rooms, to smart orchestras, is not the least of the attractions offered.

Worries of Ministers
(Winnipeg Tribune)
It is doubtful whether individuals in other countries would dare
to intrude private requests on cab-
iuet ministers to any such extent
as is done iu Canada. It is more
than twenty years since Sir George
Murray in his report to the Borden
government on governmental machinery commented upon the unreasonable burden placed on cabinet ministers by being thus dis
tnvcted by politics from the serious
duties of administration. Instead
of lessening this burden has increased, more particularly in recent years, with more people than
ever looking for aid in some form
from members of the government.
Teacher—Why was Solomon the
wisest man in the world?
Boy—He had so many wives to
advise him.
