Thrilling Scenes Mark
Last of Basketball
The last regular basketball
games which preceded the disastrous lire were particularly interesting. High School opened the
evening by running up sixty-one
points, while they allowed Concentrator Intermediates to accumulate
thirty-four, McMillan and Asimus
scored almost at will for the winners, and Stewart shone on the
losing side.
High School: Asimus-22, Mc-
Millan-20, McDougall-10, Steele-9,
O'Neill, Barclay.'
Concentrator:   Stewart-14,  Lay-
cox.6, Docherty, Cavalier-6,  Moff-
at-6, Weber-2.
Public School Win by 2 Pts.
The game between the schoolgirls was the best contest yet
staged by these teams. The result was uncertain until the whistle
left the public school two points
ahead. Just what might have
happened in future games is an
interesting speculation.
Public School: D. Gregg-10, L.
Dresser-4, M. Dresser, W. Cameron, M. Cloke, D. Waterman, M.
McDonald.   Total, 14.
High School: F. Cameron-8, K.
Eve-2, M. Marriott-2, V. Eve, D.
Austin, J. MacDonald, F. Dods-
worth.    Total, 12.
Curtain Ringer Close Game
M The game between the Coke
Plant and Mechanics, which rang
down the curtain, was one of the
most exciting finishes yet seen.
Stuart McLachlan was in splendid
form for Mechanics, and his shooting in last half was mainly responsible for the two point lead which
Mechanics obtained in the last minute of the game.
Mechanics: McLachlan-10, Laz-
oreck-8, Clay-2, Beaulieu-2, Evans-
2, Wilson, Bartman.
Coke Plant: Hill-11, Dodd-6,
Stewart-1, Asimus-3, Anderson,
Jamieson. Spencer.
Basketball Schedule Is
The Executive of the Basketball
Association have decided to turn
over to the Community League the
money previously allotted for prizes.
A series of Senior games may be
played at the Mine Hall to decide
the winners of the cup and medals.
In the Intermediate League, thel
Executive decided that the High
School being as yet undefeated,
should receive the cup for the present season.
Rich Ore Vein Located
At Esperanza
An ore vein eight inches wide,
composed of the finest high grade
argentite silver ever mined at the
Esperanza is now being worked.
The ore vein was broken into
during the week. It was located in
the Lost Vein or No. 5 tunnel after
32 feet of drifting had been done.
The tunnel was driven years ago by
former owners a distance of 66 feet
and reports are that extremely high
grade ore was taken out at that
time. The vein has again been
picked up and great credit is due
the mine manager, N. Fraser, for
his excellent judgement in re-locating this rich vein. The ore is being
drifted on to the west, and depth is
being gained as the tunnel is extended.

League will be held. At this
meeting reports of last year's operations will be read, and new
Councillors elected for the ooming
Viewed from an impartial point
of view the past year has been an
exceptionally successful one for
the League, and this success is
solely due to the sound methods
employed by members of the
Council in making decisions on
the various problems as they arose;
their co-operation with the secretary, F. M. Kelley—whose experience in community matters is
almost unequalled—also greatly
assisted in the successful functioning of the Community League for
the past year. The result is, the
League is in as strong or perhaps
stronger position than it was 12
months previously, and everyone
who are members" find it hard to
register any legitimate complaint.
Those who are not members may
find fault, but they really have no
grounds, for if a person does not
put his shoulder to the wheel and
push, he certainly should not persist in trying to put a block in the

their sad bereavement.
Fire Consumes Anyox
Friday, February 10th. marked
the conclusion of most indoor sports
in Anyox for the present season.
Somebody's cigarette, no doubt,
was thrown where it got a start
unseen, and by midnight the flames
had consumed most of the building.
The conflagation attracted a
large crowd of spectators, many of
whom suffered personal loss in
addition to being sadly out of luck
along with the Basketball Association, the Badminton Club, the
Beach Athletic Club, the Girl Guides
and other organizations. Nearly
two hundred school children are at
a loss for a place to play, and
already the lack of a large hall for
dances is being felt.

Anyox Orchestra Will
Conduct Sunday
Anyox probably does not fully
realize that it possesses an orchestra that has been conceded by
music critics to be of great merit.
The Anyox Amateur Concert Orchestra, under the baton of Stewart Steele has given Anyox a
prominent place in the annals of
music, and occupies a warm place
in the hearts of every citizen who
has been privileged to listen to
their playing.
Desiring to meet the oft repeated
demands of citizens, and believing
that the public will give generous
support to the plan, it has been
decided to give Sunday evening
concerts, beginning Sunday evening, February 26th.
Stewart Steele has made sound
progress with his orchestra and
has never deviated from his determination to give his audiences the
best possible. Acting as a unit
under his leadership every member
is a steadfast booster for Steele.
Continuation of the Sunday
concerts will depend entirely on
the support given by the public,
and if the citizens of Anyox respond
to the opportunity offered, the
concerts will be given for an indefinite period.
Popular as well as classical
musio will be on the programme,
request items also being a feature
that will be taken care of. It is
the aim of the organization to give
a concert that will appeal to the
lover of music in all its form, and
the publio may rest assured that
no particular class will be exclusively catered to, but that an
attractive bill of good popular
music will constitute the weekly

taken to Vancouver a short time
ago by his mother, after everything possible had been done for
him in the north.
The funeral was held at Vancouver on Saturday, February

E. MOSS. Editor and Publisher.
The resolution made by H. F.
Kergin, M. L. A. in the Legislature a short time ago, shows
promising signs of bearing fruit.
The matter has been discussed by
members of the Legislature and
they are unanimously in favor of
the Federal Government opening
negotiations with the United States
so that Canada can acquire this
strip of Coastline, which geographically and rightfully belong to her.
Boundaries are delicate things to
settle, especially when the decision
is in the hands of a third uninterested party. Canada has never
been satisfied with the decision—
and who can blame her after
glancing at the map—and as she
was not satisfied the matter was
bound to be again brought up.
The United States have advised
Canada that she would appreciate
being allowed to fully exercise her
treaty rights for navigation on the
St. Lawrence River. This she
can not do unless Canada is sympathetic. If the St. Lawrence
and canals were made navigable
for the enormous inland merchant
fleets possessed by United States it
would be worth untold millions to
them. Any expenditure that
would be incurred to deepen the
river and canals would benefit the
United States far more than it
would Canada. The United
State's purchased Alaska from
Russia for a few million dollars,
and surely if she is allowed full
navigation rights on the St. Lawrence she would be willing to
surrender the coastline or the
whole Alaskan territory. The
purchase of Alaska was good
business. It gave the United
States an opportunity to develop a
virgin country rich in minerals, fur
and fish. They quickly availed
themselves of the opportunity, for
in a few years the enormous herds
of valuable fur seals were almost
extinct. The fishing industry has
been developed to the limit and
the scarcity of fish is causing
anxiety. The mineral production
is on the down grade. In 1926
minerals worth $17,664,800 were
produced, but in 1927 it had
fallen to $14,445,000. Thepop-
lation is also decreasing, so that
Copper  Production of
Belgian Congo Increase
In 1927 the Union Miniere du
Haut-Katanga, whioh is situated
in the Belgian Congo, Africa, pro
diioed approximately 88,000 long
tons of copper, a satisfactory increase over the 1926 production.
During the first six months of
tire year, production was below
normal; all efforts being put forth
to further the construction pro
gramme, particularly that of the
reverberatory furnaces. Increase
in production since June has been
marked. The company is the sixth
copper mine of the world and
accounts for some 6 per cent, of the
world's production.
Liquor Board Secret Service
Operators Fired
The secret service system operated by the Liquor Board Control
has been discontinued, the public
accounts committee has been told
by the Attorney General. The
expense incurred by the Board for
secret service and law enforcement
in the year ending March 31st.,
1927, totalled $134,000, including
travelling expenses and court proceedings and was partly recouped
from the muniopalities.
Mr. Manson explained that the
present system of carrying on
secret inquiries consisted in the
transfer of permanent employees
to districts needing investigation.
Minister   of  Mines   Warns
Against Foreign Investments
A recent statement made by
Hon. William Sloan, warned investors against foreign enterprises.
He declared that British Columbia
mineral properties offered plenty of
opportunity for investment. While
the government was empowered to
investigate and report on B. C.
enterprises it had no way of
checking up foreign operations.
the territory is not such a valuable
asset to the United States as many
imagine. Annexation by Canada,
however, would spell prosperity,
for it would be merged with a
vast rich country, to the Alberta
border and beyond, and north to
the Arctic Circle. The taking
over of Alaska would give easy
transportation facilities to the
whole of North-western Canada,
and it would be instrumental in
creating many busy seaports on
the coast. It would benefit everyone concerned. Geographically
Alaska belongs to Canada and
sooner or later, by some means
she will acquire it.

Lode mining has only been in progress for about 25 years, and only about one-half of the Province has
been even prospected; 200,000 square miles of unexplored mineral bearing land are open for prospecting.
The Mining Laws of this Province are more liberal and the fees lower than those of any other Province
in the Dominion, or any Colony in the British.Empire.
Mineral locations are granted to discoverers for nominal fees.
Absolute Titles are obtained by developing such properties, security of which is guaranteed by
Crown Grants.
Practically all British Columbia Mineral Properties upon which development work has been dono
are described in some one of the Annual Beports of the Minister of Mines. Those considering
mining investments should refer to such reports. They are available without charge on application
to the Department of Mines, Victoria, B. C. Beports covering each of the six mineral Survey
Districts are published separately, and are available on application. Beports of the Geological

Colors that run rampant in the four
corners of the world provide the
contrasts that make a lasting impression on the memory of the world
traveller. Districts wholly different
in their colorful ensemble are but a
few miles apart and the keynote of
theirstrikingcontrastsis color. Today
we hear much about color psychology,
its effect on the senses of people and
of animals; and how it affects temperament and even health.
Colors of the scattered porta of the
world that burst from quaint bazaars
and the costumes of the inhabitants
on the streets, vie with those of
nature. The landscapes and seas
differ; colors in architecture, and the
colors of princes, peasant and paupers,
gladden the eye and make the blood
run riot in unison.

Fujiyama towers above the masses of
bloom, its white summit contrasted
against the blue sky. New Year's eve
in Cairo is most festive and here
colors run riot. The bazaars, the

MANY more inquiries are being
made in the United States
for farm homes in New Ontario than ever before, according
to a Dominion Government official
stationed at Detroit, but Manitoba
and northern Saskatchewan and
Alberta is the objective of most of
those now being sent north or who
are negotiating to cross the line.
"I am sending a number this
spring to northern Alberta, around
Lac LaUehe," said this agsat  "In
June, 1923,1 sent from here to that
place 35 people in one car, ALL
lived at Provement, Mich., and
their parents originally came here
from Quebec These people were
experienced fanners, had a little
money and prospered from the
first. They have written their
friends and relations and are responsible for many more going into
Alberta. There are many Quebec
French to Ohio and Michigan and
many of them are returning to
British soil. I do not think it is
an exaggeration to say that fifty
per cent of all those now crossing
the line both to the prairies and
New Ontario, are former Canadians going home or Americans who
have previously resided on Canadian farms."
