Mine Footballers Defeat
Rangers In Hard
Fought Game
Interesting and spectacular was
the game played on Thursday last,
between the Mine and Rangers,
when a misjudged kick by Ion towards the end of the game gave
victory to the Mine. Some regular
players from both teams were absent, and their places were capably
filled by aspiring younger players.
Shields, at full back for the Rangers
made his debut in league football
and acquitted himself creditably.
An outstanding feature of the
game was the splendid work of
Herzl, between the sticks forthe
Mine. Peppered from all angles,
especially in the second half, this
sterling goalie saved shot after
shot and cleared perfectly. The
odd goal against the Mine was a
dropping "twister" by Peel wnieh
gave Herzl no chance. A penalty
kick against the Mine in the first
half was well stopped.
For a while after the interval the
play was chiefly around the Mine
end, with Peel, Buchanan and Allen
constantly harassing the Mine defense. On the breakaways the
Mine forwards were unable to find
their mark, frequently kicking high.
Galbraith, however, was called
upon several times, notably when
Calderoni headed in two shots in
quick succession. Shortly after
this Ion, in attempting to kick the
ball over his head near the goal,
sent it through.
The first counter for the Mine
came from a penalty kick, nicely
taken by Dick Schaefer. Jack
Evans was the capable referee.
The teams: Rangers: Galbraith;
Ion, Shields; Ellison, Hamilton,
Dodsworth; Allen, Ferguson, Peel,
Buchanan, Flye. Mine: Herzl;
Draney, Dixon; Clarkson, Francis,
Phillips; Schafer, Owen, Calderoni,
Galbraith, Martin.

Surprise Party Given
To T. W. Falconer
Some surprise parties are a fizzle,
some are mediocre and some are
swell. In the last category can be
placed the surprise party sprung on
T. W. Falconer of Alice Arm on
Tuesday evening, on which day he
celebrated another birthday. A
large number of his friends,—in fact
all the bridge players and dancers
pf the town—invaded the house
while the boss was beguiled elsewhere. They crowded the living
quarters and overflowed into the
large hall adjoining, and the surprise was complete.
Following the recovery of the
surprise recipient, card playing was
commenced in the hall. This was
followed by a sumptuous supper,
which was digested by dancing until
the small hours of the following
From beginning to end it was a
lively, successful party, well worth
the loss of a few hours' sleep.
By the way, it almost escaped
our memory to say that, Mrs. W.
M. Cummings took home the ladies'
first prize for bridge, and Mr. Morris Petersen modestly pocketed the
men's prize.
Alice Arm Lakes Will Not
Be Stocked With Fish
This Year
A. D. Yorke, secretary of the
Alice Arm branch of the B. C.
Chamber of Mines, received a letter
this week from the Department of
Fisheries stating that it would be
impossible to ship any eggs of the
Kamloops trout here this year for
the purpose of further restocking
lakes with fish.
The reason given was that owing
to high water in certain lakes in the
south, where the spawn is procured,
the obtaining of the eggs was not
Last year several lakes in the
district were stocked with eggs
and latest observations showed
that they had matured very successfully.
Mrs. James Mclnnis and four
ohildren arrived at Anyox on Mon
day from Vancouver.

Celts and Mine Play A
Drawn Game
In ideal weather, and with a good
number of spectators, the Celts and
Mine drew one all in the league fixture on Monday last. A fine exhibition of football was provided.
Both goals scored were from mix-
ups close to goal, which gave the
goalies no chance. Good defensive
work on both sides marked the
game throughout. Jimmy Currie,
a newcomer from Prince Rupert,
gave a good account of himself at
full-back for the Celts. Herzl, the
Mine custodian, gave a stellar performance, and Williams the Celts'
centre-half, played a fine game.

Canada Gold Production
Bounds Upward
Canada produoed 260,154 ounoes
of gold in Maroh as compared with
228,224 ounces in the preceding
month and 255,675 ounces in
March, 1932. During the first
The months of July and August, three months of 1932 gold output
which are the big holiday months totalled 721,834 ounces, a 0.9 per
of the year, will soon be with us
and everyone in Anyox will yearn
for a holiday out in the open air
away from the smelter smoke and
whistle and the monotony of everyday work. These are the days
when economy rules in regard to
holidays as in other matters. Long
expensive trips are out of the
question for many during the present period of low wages, and holiday resorts closer at hand will
again be in favor this year. Luckily for Anyox people the beautiful
town and district of Alice Arm is
within a two-hour trip of home,
Alice Arm is the most picturesque
and ideal holiday resort on the
northern coast. Here the trees
are clad in many shades and wild
flowers abound in profusion.
Numerous shady roads and trails
offer pleasant walks. Sparkling
rivers and creeks lure the fisherman, while mountain climbing,
boating, swimming, tennis, etc. can
also be indulged in. The attractions of Alice Arm are many, and
not among the least is that the
cost of taking such a holiday is
reduced to a minimum. One can
live practically as cheap amid these
pleasant, surroundings as at home.
You owe yourself a holiday. You
owe the children one also. Why
not take advantage of the opportunity ?
Whether silver will be re-monetized by the present London Economic Conference still remains
unsettled. Silver has many friends
at the Conference. It also has
many enemies, which makes the
outcome doubtful. All we can do
is to hope for the best and prepare
for the worst.
Iceland Born Duck Was Shot
In Quebec
The banding of young birds
which is carried on as a joint effort
by the governments of the United
States and Canada under the provisions of the Migratory Birds
Convention is resulting in the compilation of valuable data.
Last Fall a resident of Bradore
Bay in Northeastern Quebec, shot
a drake pin-tail whioh bore a small
aluminium band on one of its
wings. This band was stamped
with a Danish name and address
which he sent to a member of the
migratory bird staff of the department of the interior at  Ottawa.
An investigation by that department proved that the bird had been
banded as a duckling on June 30,
1930 in Aldaldal, northern Iceland, j
cent advance over the production
in the corresponding period of 1932.
Ontario's production rose to 198,
875 ounces from the February total
of 177,994 ounces. A slight advance was recorded in the output
of gold in Quebec; the month's
production amounted to 28,719
ounces as against 27.306 ounces in
February. Production in British
Columbia totalled 18,306 ounces in
March; during the preceding
month 12,263 ounces were produced
Manitoba produced 14,120 ounces
as compared with 10,223 ounces in
February. The Maroh production
was the highest on record since
August, 1932. There was a small
production of gold from the Yukon
and Nova Scotia during March.

Wild Animals Friendly on Banff-Windermere Highway

In the Canadian Rockies the friendliness of which Is not due to mortals
as ia Grayson's book, but to the
friendliness of animals. Animals
termed wild, but in this Instance a
word that cannot be applied to those
on the Banff-Windermere Highway.
9 There is ipossilbly no more beautiful road than this which runs from
Banff to Lake Windermere, In the
Columbia River Valley. The distance
of 104 miles is spectacular and the
scenes are constantly changing. The
views from the high passes looking
down Into valleys, thousands of feet
Wow, tiny lakes surrounded by al-
pine meadows, rivers crossed and re-
crossed, and glimpses of cascades
tumbling down slopes from dizzy
heights are Intriguing and beautiful.
To this natural beauty Is added
that of seeing the animals ln their
natural haunts. Rocky Mountain
sheep are seen on the road along
Vermilion lakes not far trom Banff.
They are sotame that often motors

remarks of "nice old chap, fine old

and he will try to come even nearer.
Bozo no doulbt had many dreams
during the winter of summer tourists, and possibly has figured out la
true bear fashion Just how to got
the most out of the tourist season.
Deer are seen, also, on this famous
.highway, though not as often as

Canoe Trips in Canada
Lakes and Rivers Provide Numerous Attractions
Opportunities for an Enjoyable Vacation Almost Unlimited
WlfpP;:'.       '..!
HE requirements for a successful and satisfactory trip
by canoe; suitable water,
1 picturesque country and an
excellent summer climate,
can be found almost any-
 , where in Canada. The innumerable lakes and rivers make the
choice of trips almost unlimited.
One can travel for hundreds of miles
on any of the great rivers, journeying from lake to lake and portaging
where rapicb impede or heights intervene.    Having   decided  upon  the
kind of trip to be made, whether
one requiring much effort and experience, or one quite free from
rapids and portages, the canoeist has
only to select his route.
Easy of Access
Although railways and the automobile have provided a. means of
rapid transport, there are countless
places in the quiet of the forest,
out of reach of either. It is such
places, approachable only by canoe,
that invite the adventurer to partake of the wonders of nature. The
railways and the development of
good roads have however made the
majority of canoe routes in Canada
easily accessible, and one need not
travel far from the majority of
Canadian cities before reaching the
embarking point of an enjoyable
Forest Beauty
In certain parts one may follow
the streams for a long summer
outing and never see a village or
dwelling, yet civilisation lies so
close that return is easily possible.
Waterfalls, rapids large and small,
lakes of singular beauty hidden
deep in the forest, and islands
covered with pine and spruce trees
are among the interesting features
encountered en route. In some
places one may travel hundreds of
miles without meeting obstacles of
any kind.
There is a remarkable contrast between the conventionality of modern
life and the full naturalness of life
in the great forest, where one may
relax, amid the beauty of natural
surroundings. A strange appeal of
imagination comes to one while following the routes of the historic
explorers and oootentmant prevails
amid the constant change of beautiful scenery.
Fish and Gasne in Abundance
Canadian lakes and rivets are
renowned for the variety and
abundance of their fish. Brook and
lake trout are numerous, the latter
often weighing from fifteen to thirty
pounds while other species of fish
are plentiful. Eastern Canada is
well provided with waterways, well
suited to travel by canoe. Canal
systems, rivers large and small,
rapids, falls, lakes, stillwatem and
all the requirements for an enjoyable
canoe trip, await the devotee of the
paddle. Whether it be a cruise
through a well settled region, or an
adventurous journey through tlie
wilderness, Ihe canoeist will find an
almost unlimited number of lakes
and streams.
The waterways of western Canada,
in days gone by, assisted materially
in unveiling the mystery of tbe
great country between lake Superior
and <he Pacific Ocean. Radiating
from lake Winnipeg, are routes of
romantic interest. Nestling among
the mountains of the coast are many
beautiful lakes, also streams that
wind through the hills, where sport

Editorial  Comment In
Regard To Future
Silver Prices
What will be the ultimate result
of the present agitation for the
raising of the price of silver by re-
monetizing it, is being widely discussed throughout North America,
especially in the silver producing
sections. Following is a portion
of an editorial published in the
Alaska weekly, and also an editorial
published in the Financial News,
Vancouver. These comments show
that many think silver prices will be
higher in the not distant future.
"Keep your eye on silver. We
do not often indulge in a natural
editorial propensity to prophecy but
we are going to declare this a special occasion and make the statement
that the boom in silver properties
will overshadow old King Gold
before the year is out. We base
that assertion on the fact that a reviving world commerce is impossible without the recognition of silver
as a stabilized medium of exchange
acceptable throughout the world.
That recognition will not detract,
but will add to the value of gold for
it will stimulate world trade in a
manner which will vastly increase
the demands on all recognized media
of exchange. During the month
of May, silver imports to the United
States amounted to 1,400,000
ounces as 'against 681,000 ounces
for April and 500,000 ounces in
May, 1932. Present prices average
around 36% cents as against 25
cents a year ago. Keep your eye
on silver, on the shares in silver
properties and on the communities
which will develop with increased
silver production."
"A significant development in the
world currency situation not to be
underestimated in its ultimate outcome is the acceptance by the United
States of a war debt payment by
Great Britain in silver, valued arbitrarily at 50 cents an ounce.
This action may possibly be a
precedent which will have no sustaining sequel, but it would appear
to be silver's first step back to
something like its former respectability as a monetary metal.
There are many interests and
many economists antagonistic to
the return of silver to free coinage
and to its stabilization on a price
