and bags plentiful. We hear
enthusiastic reports from the.
various members of a party that
were out on Capt Steel's "Chance."
Their sole topic for days past has
been reminiscences of "Allan McDonald's "Mulligan". From the
"Cap" downwards all agree that
"Allan's Braxie Stew was par
excellence. Even Capt Yuill who
is noted ' amongst his personal
friends for his delicate appetite,
agrees that "Allan's Stew," beats
even "Sam's Wallaby Cocktails."
We extend our appreciation to Mr.
McDonald for his skill, we had no
idea that "Mac*' had a profession

From all appearances the people
of Anyox are not going to lack
entertainment this coming winter.
A new organization, the Loyal
Order of Moose, have already
entered and field, by giving adance
with promises of more entertainments to follow, The Anyox
Community League will no doubt
be in the lead in regard to indoor
sports, and the B. P. O. Elks and
other organizations will give a
variety of entertainments for the
amusement of the people. Anyox
is indeed fortunate in possessing so
many organizations catering for
amusement and we wish them all
the best of luck.,    Good  clean
acy even of "Dixie", which long
since became an international tune.
The really phenominal part is
that "The Rosary" isn't jazz so
there's still hope for our generation.
This back-to-the-farm movement offers no peculiar advantages.
You can live right on in town and
contrive someway to go broke.
Another nice thing about being
poor is that your friends don't
insinuate that you are a liar when
you say you havn't the ten to spare.
These are stirring times. And
you must keep stirring if you expect
to have any time at all. ,
Of all the ills with which I'm
cursed the winter furnace is the
worst. On balmy days it rolls up
heat but balks on days of cold and
sleet. And ever when my wife' complains I do not take sufficient pains
nor use my substitute for brains,
Salmon Fishing on Fraser River
May Close
In order to save the sockeye salmon
industry in the Fraser river system,
Hon. Wm, Sloan, minister of mines
and commissioner of fisheries for
British Columbia, has urged Hon.
Ernest Lapointe, federal minister of
marine and fisheries, to carry on
negotiations with the American Government and the state of Washington
looking to the complete closing of the
Fraser to sockeye Ashing for a period
of 20 or 25 years. The provincial department of fisheries has been repeat:
edly placed on record as favoring a
conservation policy with regard to
this important food industry, but so
far action haa not materialized. This
has been due largely to the lack of
co-operation on the part of the United
States authorities. But as the result
of the recent conference between the
two ministers it is expected that a
satisfactory settlement is not far distant,   '

taken at regular intervals, without
excess, will help one to keep
younger and enjoy life far more
than all the doctor's compounds.
The news published in any
newspaper naturally does not
please everybody, To produce a
newspaper that would gratify the
whims and desires of every individual would be a difficult job and
would probably result in a news-
less journal. Keeping incidents
' out of the paper or coloring them,
to suit the viewpoints of certain
readers is unfair to the general run
of patrons.1 The newspapers do
not make the news. They make
events public after they have
happened or chronicle those which
are scheduled for the future, They
are not responsible for court trials,
arrests, political activities and the
other happenings in daily life. It
is their duty to publish what has
occurred, colorless and free from
editorial opinion.
"The Rosary" continues as the
world's best selling song. It has
been translated into every language.
And has earned more money than
any other song ever written. In
popularity it threatens the suprem-
among the cinders, ash and Coke. I
bend my frame at its equator and
operate the agitator. I get ash 'tis
vory true, but half the fire comes
falling through. Then when my
strength is quite expended I find
the grate is end for ended. There's
nothing iu the world to do but clean
it out and start auew. In vain
my weary eyes I raise no snappy
klridling, meets my gaze. Jim
Jones from whom I ordered wood

That cussed furnace is the reason I

when every gent had B. V. D's and
folks could sleep without the quilts.

Present Large Copper
Output Keeping Down
Burdick, Logan & Company, Limited
787, Granville Street,
Vancouver, B. O.
•   Special to the Herald
_____ 3
Output of IJor.th and South American mines including copper coming to
American refineries from Africa ,is
about 195,000,000 pounds a month,
This large output is one of the main
factors in making copper prices weak
Many feel that this is slightly more
than present production should De con
siderihg world conditions and many
believe output during the next few
months will show further tendency to
This last supposition is apparently in
error.' It is understood upon best
authority that the porphry group of
mines does not intend to increase output appreciably until conditions in
Europe have shown much greater
improvement at present.' It is also
understood that Bradeu, with an output of between 11,000,000 and I2,000i000
pounds as variously estimated, is practically at the maximum permitted by
present equipment;. This is also true
of Kennecott and Mother Lode Oeitp
de Pasco with an output of about 10j-
000,000 pounds a month is also at maximum permitted by present equipments
as is also Chile Copper. Consequently
no increase is to be expected in the
copper output of South American and
Alaskan mines.
Arizona Output Not to Increase
It is understood that the Phelps,
Dodge group does not intend to make
any further increases in output until
conditions abroad show great improvements. Anaconda output probably
will be held around 18,000,000 pounds a
month. Mexican output; probably will
show practically no increase as will also
be true of Arizona.
Howe* Sound; which is producing
about 2,5Q0-000 pounds of copper a
month is about at maximum. Gran by
output will probably not be increased
materially although Allenby probably
will begin to mine ore in another
month. Copper country mines are
adding to their crews and output may
increase slightly from mines on the
Michigan peninsula. For more 'than
three months amount of Copper smelted by custom smelters of the United
States has shown, little increase and as
yet little signs of decrease.
Canvass of the situation1,, therefore
seems to indicate that output of North
aiid South ■Aihericant mines will stay-
around present rate of 19^000,006
pounds, and that there is little danger
of any further increase unless
European demand becomes so insistent
as to force price of. copper considerably higher thairat present.
Output of mines on other continents
does not promise to increase materially
so long as.copper remains under 15
cents a pound as Katanga is now producing about 12,000,000 pounds of copper a month and other mines are not
in any position to increase output
until price approaches 16 cents.

Those who have any doubts
whether a provincial election will
be held in the near future can set
their minds at rest and prepare for
a oampain for all signs point to an
election-at an early date. Chief
among these signs is the manner
in wbioh the government is endeavoring to buy a portion of the weekly
press of the province by distributing advertising wholesale to those
they wish to bring into line. When
tenders are called* by the government for public works, the local
newspaper carries, the advertisement, so that local men can be
informed that tenders are being
called for. This praotice is oarried
out throughout the province,
except Alice Arm and Anyox.
The Portland Canal News, of
Stewart have always oarried ad
vertisements When ' tenders are
oalled for in that district, and in
addition to this, are now carrying
advertisements relating to some
jerk-water wharf repairs away
down at Bella Coola and Sohooner
Passage, while the Herald, which
has the largest circulation of any
weekly newspaper on the mainland
coast, north of Vancouver, is not
allowed to carry advertising when
tenders are being called by the
government for public work' done
right in the towns of Anyox and
Alice Ami, thus depriving the
oitizens of information they have
a perfect right to learn, especially
those who are anxious to submit
bids, .
