I Col. C. W. Peck addresses
Meetings in Both Towns
Meetings Held at Alice Arm & Aiiyox
A large number of Alice Arm
Itiiti/eiiH gathered at the Alioe Arm
I'Hotel, on Wednesday afternoon, at
Itho public meeting held by Col. C.
IW. Peck, and the' large audience
llistenod attentively to the several
Mr. T, W. Falconer, who was
chairman of the meeting gave a
few reasons why Col. Peck should
be returned as member for this riding, and said that Alioe Arm
people should be proud to have two
such distinguished soldiers as Col.
Peck and Capt. MoGregor in their
Capt. McGregor did not make a
very long speech in view of the fact
that their time Was limited. He
stated that Col. Peck had done
more for the dependents of soldiers
and also for the returned men
themselves than any other man in
Canada. That Col. Pack, had, in
the past, given everyone a square
deal and there is no doubt he would
continue to do so.
Col. Peck, on rising, said he hoped the citizens of Alice Arm would
excuse him if his voice was a little
hoaree. ' This was one of the
largest constituencies in Canada
and it was a great strain to be continually travelling and making
speeches. The speaker said that,
the opposition cry is, that his independence is only a camoflage, and
thrit he is a Tory, but he said that
his past history would show that
he was supporting Liberal candidates in this district, years ago.
He was elected in 1917 as a meih-
ber of the Union Government and
he supported that government
until the dissolution, and now that
the government is dissolved he has
no further obligations to it. He
differed with Mr. Meighen in not
allowing the Redistribution Bill to
be passed before the present election, and said he did not believe in
protection as he was a low tariff
man, but that in his opinion there
will be no ohanges in the tariff, no
matter what party is elected.
The national debt of Canada is
two billion, three hundred million
dollars and the tariff is the basis of
our revenue, and we cannpt sweep
it away without wrecking the
financial foundation of the country.
Col. Peck did not think the
Grand Trunk Pacific Railway got
a square deal from the late government. He believejs that this
northern country has a great
future, including the Grand Trunk
Paoifio Railway; Prince Rupert,
and the vast hinterland snrround-
ing it.
He caused some merriment when
he stated that he was being'attacked by a paper oalled the Prince
Rupert Daily News, which had
started a campaign of petty insinuations against him. He quoted
extracts from The News of October
20th, in which he was desoribed as
a voice crying in the wilderness; it
is a parrot cry, said the Colonel,
and stated that if he happened to
be in the wilderness as that great
man in the' bible was 2000 years
ago, he hoped he would not be clad
in "beaver skins." The Colonel
stated that he was in this country
twenty years ago, when the
editor of the News was sticking
type, back in Ontario.
He also took a crack at the Interior News, of Smithers and stated
that the editor of that 2 by 4 sheet,
whioh carried no weight, was a
political acrobat, who suddenly
changed his politics after a visit tp
The speaker concluded1 by saying
that the old parties are dead, that
people are getting away from
party lines and are reasoning
things out for themselves. He is
independent of any party and
should he be elected he would go
back to Ottawa, free and untrammelled to support any party for the
good of this riding.
Mr, W. W. Wright, of Prince
Rupert gave ah address of considerable length, in; which he stated
that he was a liberal and that he
helped to put the present government in power at Victoria and he
hoped to help put them out. He
said that Mao'Donald and Congdon
who were speaking for Mr. Stork,
were imported political thugs, and
were the only two men except
Mr. Williams, of Prince Rupert,
who were out speaking for Stork.
In his opinion, Col. Peck would be
returned by tho largest majority in
the province.
The meeting closed with the
singing of the National Anthem,
and the party left for Anyox. where
a meeting was held the stome evening.
A meeting was held at the Recreation Hall, Anyox, the same
evening! and was much along the.
same lines as the Alice Arm meeting, except that Harry Fowler
made a few remarks in favor of Mr.
Stork. Owing to the Alice Arm
meeting ooming to a rather abrupt
close, Harry did not have a ohance
to voice his opinion, but he got
there just the same.

High Grade Ore
Struck on the
Upper Kitsault
Find made  on  the    Black
Diamond at Clearwater
A rich strike of high grade silver
ore has been made by John Hauber
on the Black Diamond group of
olaims. , This property is situated
on Clearwater Creek, ou ;the upper
Kitsault River. A tunnel was
started some time ago on the surface showing and is now in over
50 feet, the tunnel following the
lead the entire length. The ore is
silver sulphides and an average
assay taken across five feet gave
returns of 70.7 ozs. silver per ton.
Work on driving the tunnel is
still being proceeded with, and as
much work as possibly will be done
on the property this winter.
This strike is the riohesj yet made
in the Clearwater Creek district
and it proves thai high grade ore
is also to be found in- that section
if development work is undertaken,
The lead on which the tunnel is
being driven has an average width
on the surface of about twenty

The Coming Election.
The fact that the Herald has
not taken an active part in the
present political campaign has been
commented on by some of our
readers, and in reply we would
refer them to the editorial in our
first issue of June 4th, in which we
stated that this paper was to be
published in the interests of Anyox
and Alice Arm "and if at any time
this district is not getting a square
deal from the government, we would
fight to the last ditch to obtain it."
It is not of vital importance to this
district which of the present candidates are elected, the towns of
Anyox and Alice Arm will not
benefit one iota whether a liberal
or an independent represents us in
parliament at Ottawa. It will not
make any difference in the price of
copper, nor will it make any difference regarding the operation of the
Dolly Varden Mine or the extension of the Dolly Varden Railway.
Prince Rupert and the country
tributary to the Grand Trunk
Pacific are naturally more interested in the coming election than we
are and it is to their interests to
elect a government that in favorably disposed towards developing
the country along the railway and
making Prince Rupert a terminus
in reality instead of in name.
We have problems of our own,
lots of them, but they are for the
most part for the provincial government to solve, and not the Federal
The Herald, as we have already
stated, is not married to any political party. It will, at all times,
fight for the rights of this district,
regardless of what government is in
power, or whom it offends.
Pick Your Fancy.
There are about 1000 electors
in the towns of Anyox and Alice
Arm, and doubtless all have read
or heard the views of the two
candidates and what they represent, and it is up to everyone to
weigh the two candidates carefully
in the balance and vote for the
man they think is best fitted to
represent this riding and also ' the
one they think will be of the greatest benefit to the Dominion of
Canada as a Whole.

Public Meeting held
at Anyox in Aid of
Famine Stricken
Russian Districts
Following is a detailed account
of the-public meeting,'- held in
Anyox last week,1 in aid of famine
stricken Russia, of whioh we made
brief mention in our last issue
Mr. R. Armour, president of the
Community League, occupied the
chair and the meeting was addressr
ed briefly by Mr. J. N. Burrough,
seoretary of the relief committee
operating in Prince Rupert, who
outlined the procedure that had
been followed there. Their appeal
had been very favorably received
by all sections and a house-to-house
canvas of Prince Rupert had yielded over $1000 to date, with the;
city not yet covered. He appealed
to the audience to listen to the
chief speaker of the 'evening, Mr.
J. R. Knight, Canadian representative of the Red Cross Society of
Soviet Russia, who would give
them the results of his personal
observations during a sojourn of
four months in and near Moscow,
in the early part of this year. One
point to be remembered was that
out of every dollar contributed to
the organization represented by

Why the best?
When a diamond is being considered, why is it so
essential to secure the finest quality-? First, because a
really fine diamond has exceptional fire and brilliancy,
giving lasting pleasure to its owner. Second, because a
fine diamond is permanent in value as well as in
brilliancy, hence it is in the nature of an investment.

Continued from page 2.
lr.   Knight,  94J  cents reached
tussia in the form of food, clothing
hid medicines purchased in Canada
(uid the United States.
Mr. Knight then gave a vivid
presentation of the actual conditions in the regions subjected to the
Itamine. People here would be
horrified to see the bodies of men,
vomen and children lying in the
Streets, but over there it was a
common sight. They were the
bodies of refugees from the famine
listriots whose strength had given
aut in the attempt to reaeh help.
The drought's effects had been disastrously affected by the ravages
of the oounter revolutionary armies
which had invaded the present
famine districts. The only coal
basin for instance had been practically destroyed, the maohinery
blown up and the mines flooded.
This district supplied most of the
coal used in Russia, the balance
being imported through the Baltic.
It meant that all the industries
dependent on coal, had to operate
with wood and peat for fuel, and
liomes during the cruel Russian
winter had to go un-heated.
In addition to that form of destruction the invading armies had
seized all the peasants farming
machinery, piled them in heaps,
pouredoil lover tlie'm and set them
alight. Peasants had mournfully
pointed out to him the spot where
the big fire was and on the ground
could be seen metal parts that the
fire could not consume. Their reserves of grain had been confiscated
or destroyed. In short, the work
of destruction had been complete.
With the assurance of immunity
from further similar invasions and
with the energetic co-operation of
the Soviet Government, an area
equal to that of 1913 had been
sown to wheat, but, the drought
had dashed all their hopes of a
harvest. A stretch of country 400
miles long and 200 miles wide with
a population of over eighteen
millions, was a burnt up waste,
with no food in sight. If'aid was
not quickly rendered millions would
die from starvation and its attendant diseases. The Russian people
as a whole, and every resource at
at the diposal of the Soviet Government had turned to the task of
caring for the famine sufferers and
the speaker gave some moving
instances of voluntary acts of self-
denial, he had witnessed people in
the oities drawing their starvation
allowance and handing it over
intact to the famine stricken.
•„In spite of all obstacles the Russians had had to contend with, the
speaker was amazed at the spirit in
whioh they had met their difficulties, and he quoted Col. Mackie,
Canadian government representative in Russia and an official of
the United States in support of his
statements. What particularly
struck him was the great care
bestowed upon the children and
the wonderful efficient system of
education. In helping the Russian
people they would be«helping a
people who were straining every
nerve and making untold sacrifices
to help themselves. ,
After the address a collection of
$128.55 was taken and a Relief
Committee organized, coihposed of
rs. R. Armour, (convenor)
Siples, H. T. Anderson, Rev. J,

Xing, the development of Canada is to come under the domination of the'United

Is Canada's destiny to be that of a great free nation within the British Empire group
of Nations, developing her boundless resources of mine, river, water power, forest,
and cultivating her millions upon millions of acres of arable' land? Is her development to surpass that of any other nation?
Shall her manufacturing industries develop her minerals and raw materials into Implements and goods for the benefit and comfort of her people and for foreign trade?
Shall she become a self-contained, nation within the Empire, her great railways
interchanging, the products of factory and farm among her own people, and hen
ships sailing every sea?
Shall she maintain her integrity within the Empire and protect her farms and
factories against unfair competition from foreign countries?
On December 6th, Canada should one* again protect her farms, her factories and her workmen
•gainst the unsound theory of Free Trade, and should hold fast to her reasonable Protective Tariff,
her national entity and her British connection.
On December 8th Canada should declare with no uncertain voice that she will not tolerate the false
trade theories of visionaries and group leaders which tend toward her economic destruction, toward
the separation of her people and the weakening of the ties that bind Canada to the British Empire.
On December 6th Canada should demonstrate unmistakably to the outside world her find deter-
