Rangers Win From Mine
In Evenly Matched
In a fast game of football, in
which honors were about even as
regards the play, the Rangers again
won from the Mine, the score being
3-1. The Mine were unfortunate
in losing a man for the second half,
Phillips being unable to take the
field after the breather owing to an
injury on his chest.
The game opened with the Mine
having the advantage, and Hunter,
in goal for the Rangers, had a stiff
task in clearing several dangerous
shots in quick succession. Shortly
afterwards the play moved to the
other end, the Rangers scoring from
a mix-up in the goal mouth. From
a penalty kick awarded the Mine
Dyer sent in a low fast shot, which
was well saved by Hunter.
In the second half the play moved
rapidly up and down the field, a
treacherous wind rather spoiling the
Mine's advantage in kicking downhill. Buchanan, from a neat pass
by Allen, drew number two. The
Mine made a great effort to stave
off defeat, the half-back line showing up to good advantage, and after
some neat passing Jelbert got home
a fast one. Shortly afterwards Ferguson secured the third for the reds
thus cinching the game. Peel,
Dodsworth and Hamilton played a
sterling game for the winners, while
Home, Habecost and Dyer showed
up well for the Mine.
The teams: Mine: Martin; Albi,
Dixon; Clarkson, Habecost, Horne;
Calderoni, Phillips, Dyer, Jelbert,
Schaefer. Rangers: Hunter; Dodsworth, Ion; Ellison, Hamilton,
Ferguson; Flye, Boyd, Peel, Buchanan, Allen.

Premier R. B. Bennett
Much Business Conducted At
I. 0. D. E. Meeting
The regular monthly meeting of
the Collison of Kincolith Chapter,
I. 0. D. li., was held in the Canadian Legion Rooms on Monday
the 5th. with Regent Mrs. Lang in
the chair,
A large amount of routine business was transacted as this was
the last regular meeting until September. Local relief is still being
extended in a few needy cases.
Rose Day will be held as usual on
July 1st. with Mrs. M. A. Wynne
as convener of the committee. A
number of pieces of furniture which
have been donated to the Chapter
by Mr. C. Harman will be disposed
of in the near future, the committee in charge of this being under
the  convenership  of Mrs.  Cody.
Many Are The Trials and
Tribulations Of Alice
Arm Gardeners
The editor was walking down
one of our main boulevards a few
days ago, when he saw a friend
busily, engaged in his garden
scratching out numerous weeds—
with one of those 5-pronged little
do-dabs—from among the plants
that weren't tLrre. He did'nt look
particularly happy, and as he caught
our' questioning gaze, he said:
"This is one hell of a country to
grow things in. If you plant seeds
when it is cold, they don't come up.
If you plant them when it's warm,
it turns cold and they don't come
up. When the plants do come up,
the cut worms eat them off. When
they are a good size the root worms
kill them. Later in life, the weeds
choke them to death and finally
they perish for lack of sunshine.
Yes, I think I'll turn this lot into a
duck pond," he said, as the rain
commenced to rapidly descendagain.
And we heartily agreed that it was
a good idea.
Premier R. B. Bennett sailed last
week-end for London, where he
will attend the World Economic
and Monetary Conference. He
was accompanied by E. N.
Rhodes, minister of finance and
a small group of government
experts. The Premier will stress
the advisability of a revaluation
of gold at the Conference and
also the more extensive use of
silver currency. 1fiis attitude in
regard to remonetizing silver is
not known.

Elks' Day For Children
Will Be Held During
Month of July
Oh! What a time is in store for
the youngsters of Anyox this year.
What sports and races and entertainment! This year the Brother
Bills will hold their Flag and Field
Day, which is an historic event
throughout the Dominion, on a day
distinct from any other organization
event so that nothing will tend to
overshadow the significance of this
great Children's Festival.
On account of the large number
of children who have come to Anyox
recently, there will be a record attendance. The Elks are already
planning a big programme of sports
and entertainment. Children who
cannot yet talk are being trained
forthe "Hello Bill" shouting contest. Brother Bob McMillan is installing huge containers for the
coldest ice-cream he ever made.
Soft drink factories are already
working overtime. An extra supply of balloons, in all shapes and
sizes, has been ordered, and every
child will receive a flag. Trie parents of the children are going to be
specially invited, so that they can
enjoy the fun as well.
Watch for further announcement
of this event, which will take place
some time in July.
Mine Cubs and Colts
Meet In Baseball
On Friday the 2nd. the two Mine
baseball teams, Colts and Cubs,
gambolled around the Ball Park
when they-met in a League fixture,
the Colts coming out on the top
side of an 8-6 score. Several
times, however, the Cubs stopped
the prancing of the high spirited
Colts, and it looked as though the
winning streak of the latter was
about to be stopped. A fatal last
inning, however, gave the horses
the game.
Frenchy LaPlante was the hero
of the evening. The Colts' midget
pitched nice ball for six innings and
got three hits into the bargain.
Ferguson, pitching for tbe cubs,
did a nice job, but his support was
erratic. Errors cost the Cubs the
game, for they had a two run lead
in earned runs. Smith was the
leading hitter for the Gibson boys,
with three clouts to his credit. The
ground was good, despite a wet
and cold evening. The umpires
were Cody and Oatman.
Following are the scores:
Olof Hanson, M. P. for Skeena
returned to his home at Smithers
last week from the Parliamentary
session at Ottawa, which lasted
seven and a half months. During the time the House of Commons was in session Mr. Hanson
voiced his opinion on several
actions undertaken by the government in regard to his riding.
The members of Christ Church
Women's Auxiliary wish to thank
all those who so generously gave
their assistance and support at
their recent Sale of Work. They
acknowledge with thanks the
splendid patronage of the public
ou that occasion.
Slides and Trees Are Being
Cleared From Railway
The narrow gauge railway which
traverses the Kitsault Valley from
Alice Arm for a distance of about
17 miles is being cleaned out so that
it can be used by gasoline speeders
and pedestrians during the coming
summer. The work is being done
by the Department of Public Works.
Rock and dirt slides will be cleared
from the track, also fallen trees and
minor repairs made to bridges.
The railway is the only means of
communication up the valley.
Although there is not any immediate sign of a resumption of mining activity in the valley on a large
scale, it is possible that if silver is
remonetized, thus forcing up the
price this summer, that major mining operations will be recommenced.
Meanwhile the railway will be used
by mining property owners in tranfr
porting supplies for carrying on
development work and in further
Developing, Printing and Enlarging. All work returned on

Railways Are Indispensable To Canada Says
' Civilization owes a great debt
to railway transportation" stated
S. J. Hungerford, acting president
of the Canadian National Railways,
in addressing the Order of Railway Telegraphers recently. "Despite competition, investigations
show that railways will continue
indefinitely to handle a large
amount of passenger business, particularly long haul traffic, and the
greater proportion of the freight
traffic. No other transportation
agency can replace the railways on
account of the lower cost on a unit
basis of transportation by rail, but
in times of decreased business
these competing agencies can take
enough traffic to make the operation of railways more difficult."
Changed conditions and partial
loss of traffic, stated Mr. Hungerford, had necessitated changes in
methods and the railways must
address themselves seriously to discarding old practices which have
become inapplicable and the substitution of new and altered
methods. Canadian railways had
already experimented with various
plans to popularize travel by rail
and some of these experiments had
exceeded expectations. Store door
deliveries of L. C. L. freight had
also been introduced in certain
Pioneer Co. Is Paying
60 Per Cent Dividend
Directors of Pioneer Gold Mines
of B. O, following a meeting recently, raised the dividend from
6 cents a share per quarter to 15
This makes the annual dividend
at the rate of 60 per oent. in place
of 24 per cent, on the par value of
$1 a share. There are 1,751,750
shares issued.
The first dividend was paid at
the rate of 3 cents a share per
quarter. On December of last
year this was raised to 6 cents a
share per quarter, and now it is
more than double for the current
quarter. Expectation prevailed
that the increase would be made
just twice what it was. even the
most optimistic of the shareholders
not anticipating that it would be
jumped from 24 per cent, to 60
per cent.

Celts Defeat  Rangers
5-3 In Fast Foot-
Ball Game
In the first clash of "arms" be^
tween the two Beach football teams
the Celts overcame the Rangers by
5 to 3 in a well fought game. The
Redshirts played two men short,
but despite this they almost succeeded in evening up the soore.
A clipping goal by Williams in the
last few minutes, however, made it
a certainty for the Celts.
After twenty minutes play, in
which the Rangers held their own
in good style, L. Gillies shot from
close in, and Hunter, who fell when
stopping the shot, was just a littler
inside the line. Play next went to
the other end and Steve Peel shot
in a fast one from close range.
Playing downhill after the interval the Celts pressed hard, Horner
securing two goals and L. Gillies
The Rangers came back determinedly after this reversal and
Buchanan got two in succession,
both being clean well-placed shots.
They were unfortunate in losing a
penalty, the greasy, heavy ball
going just outside.
Williams, for the Celts, who
played a brilliant game, got the
last counter with a fast shot from
well out. The big score does not
detract from the work of the goalies, both of whom played a sterling
game and had the odds against
them in the shape of a heavy ball
due to the rain. Ion played well
at back for the losers, as did Allen
aud Buchanan on the forward line.
The teams: Rangers: Hunter;
Ion; Hamilton, Galbraith; Allan,
Buchanan, S. Peel, Ellison, Flye.
Celts: Bell; H.Johnston, Taylor;

J—On the trail
The little village of Hope, situated on the Fraser Biver
about one hundred miles from the coast, is the
starting point for all mountaineers wishing to reach the
interior of British Columbia by the trail route. It is a
scattered village of about two hundred inhabitants but
possessing both an abundance of natural beauty and
a truly romantic past. The village is flanked on one side
by the noble Fraser river, while from the other side one
looks up three wide draws in the mountain ranees.
The one to the left is the beautiful Coquihalla valley
through which the turbulent Coquihalla river cascades
from a pass unmatched for rugged grandeur. Through
this pass too, under innumerable snow sheds and
tunnels the Kettle Valley Railway goes to Princeton
and the interior. In the centre is an opening for the
Nicolum river, to the right k the Silver Creek draw
and beyond it the snow-capped peaks of the Cascade
The mountain trail over the Hope Pass is the old one
known as the Dewdney which was surveyed and partly
built for twenty-five miles out of Hope, by English
Sappers in 1861. It winds up the Coquihalla Biver for
a snort distance, then branches off with the Nicolum. a
tributary of the former river. The way lies through
Sylvan glades, past rushing waterfalls and over rustic
bridges, the old dry "cribbing" of which is as Arm as the
day when it was laid.
The flrst feeding ground for homes is at 12 Mile Lake
—otherwise known as Divide Lake at an altitude of
2300 feet. This lake is the head waters of the Nicolum
river. Here there is a beautiful hay meadow owned by a
trapper und prospector who is patiently awaiting the
day when the transprovincial road will give him a meant

At 22 Mile there it another beautiful camping apot.
Here there is a large cabin situated in the forest's heart
on the very banks of the Skagit river. The owner of it
carries on prospecting and mining operations in tha
vicinity. He appropriately calls his cabin "Defiance
Camp" and his mine "The Silver Daisy."
From here on for many miles the scenery becomes
more wonderful, if that were possible, but at the same
time more wild and rugged. The Pass, a narrow hallway
bounded by cliffs thousands of feet high, is a sight of
nev^r-ending marvel. At one spot, known as Skagit
Muffs, the trail (a bare 18 inches wide) winds around the
