Teachers' Convention
At Victoria
As a welcome break in . the
lengthy winter term comes the
Easter recess for the members of
the teaching profession in this province. Although it affords a
relaxation from the routine of the
Sohool room for a few days, the
holiday lias become more valuable
than for the purpose of mere rest.
During the coming w"eeks, as
many B. C. 'Teachers as find it
possible to reach Vancouver meet
tlyere in convention under the auspices of the Teachers' Federation.*
This organization, it may be noted,
was established some years ago to
foster a closer co-operation between
the Department of Eduoation,
School Boards, and the Teaohers.
The aims and objects of, together
with the creditable results achieved
by such an association has genuinely justified its inception.
At the three daily sessions of
this 'convention every teacher is
enabled to attend lectures bearing
on the latest research pertaining
to the matter and methods of the
particular subjects they, are toach-
ing. --^key-may also join in; teach'
ers conferaiioes dealing with class
or grade problems confronting
them. Then, too, they are privileged to listen to the best speakers
611 educational topics of general
interest procurable.
Although many of the teachers
in the province attend university
summer sessions to take courses to
increase their efficiency and to pro-
cure; higher certificates, no short
period of the year is so eagerly
anticipated or .' so -frought with
fresh ideas and new encouragement
as the spring days of Easter week
which betoken renewed energy and
a brighter outlook throughout the
remainder of the year.

Weekly Meeting of
Anyox Community
League Council
The regular weekly meeting of
the Community League was held
on Friday evening, March 23rd. in
the Rest Room. Present: President
Lewis, Vice-President Callanan,
Secy-Treasurer Townshend, Counr
cillors Messrs. Harper, Blaney,
Simpson, Steele and Jones.
The minutes of the preceding meeting were read and approved
on motion of Mr. Simpsdh, seconded
by Mr. Callahan.
The Secretary's report dealt with
preparing for the Easter Dance,
material for , decorations being
ordered and advertising arranged
for. Two sample pairs of skates
ordered by the last Council have
arrived and will be passed around
for your inspection before meeting
adjourns. These skates cost $7.96
per pair landed in Anyox. In connection with the request of the
Council, to get the League members
at the Mine to suggest a representative for the Counoil, a number
had been interviewed. Mr. Blundell
had consented t6~ act as the Mine
representative. As to the remaining representative from the Beach,
it was desirable to have one who
would be capable of representing
Home and School, an important
department, and Mrs. Dwyer had
been asked to take this on, she had
consented to do so.
Mr. Callanan then asked that
Mrs. Dwyer be made a Councillor
of the Community League. Dr.
Harper asked that Mr. Blundell be
the Mine representative. Mr.
Simpson moved that nominations
be closed. This was seconded by
Mr. Blaney and carried.
The Secretary introduced the
Gymnasium and its losses and possible ways and means of producing
revenue were discussed at considerable length. It was thought best
to keep it open if at all possible,
and various suggestions were put
forward. H the roller skates
proved satisfactory, this might be a
way. Mr. Blaney thought they
should be tried. Mr. Steel thought
that the skates would ruin the floor .
and told of efforts made at Prince.
Rupert to keep the roller rink there
open. It did not pay and was
something that soon lost its interest. Mr. Steele did not think it
advisable to outlay $400.00 on
roller skates. While there was
nothing decided in the matter 6f
keeping the Gym. open, it was
thought advisable to give Mr.
Cheshire, the instructor, notice
•that his services would not he
required after the end Of April, In
doing this, there was no question
of dissatisfaction with Mr. Cheshire
jr his work, it being merely a question af financing only. To this
effect a motion was made by Dr.
Harper and seconded by Mr. Townshend and carried. .

League Meeting
Continued from page 1.
•The Chairman opened the question of Recreation Hall and the
methods employed in the conduct
of the activities there. Mr. Simpson suggested that in connection
with the pool room there should be
a different system of collecting and
thought that the fare box idea was
the best one to introduce. Mr.
Steele had never seen anything so
loosely conducted, and if.it were
possible advocated the street car
system of ringing a bell every time
a fee was collected, and which was
the practice in a great many pool
rooms. The picture show also
oame in for its share of criticism
and more efficient methods of
checking suggested. All this discussion took place in best interests
of the League. If the League was
going to take full advantage of its
facilities for doing business, things
should be handled on a business
basis. Iu seeking to do this, there
was no question as to the honesty
of the Manager of the Recreation
Hall. The Secretary advised the
holding of a special meeting of the
Council to go thoroughly into the
matter, at which the manager of
the Recreation Hall would be present. The Council agreed that this
would be the best way of disposing
of the matter, and it was moved
by Mr. Callanan and seconded by
Mr. Jones that a, special meeting
be called for Monday evening,
March 26th. which Mr. Selfe would
be asked to attend.
The Easter Dance was then discussed. Mr. Simpson told of progress and what had already been
The Chair then announced that
he would appoint the Chairmen of
the different departments. For
Rjcreatiou he named Mr. Seidleman
for Choral and Dramatic, Dr.
Harper; for House Chairman, Mr.
FV npson; for Forum, Mr. Jones;for
J.i.ueand Sohool; Mrs. Dwyer, and
for entertainment, Mr. Blaney.
The Secretary suggested that a
Junior Department of the League
be instituted, so that the younger
element, which was an important
one, should have some representation. This was left over for
further dealing.   '

Market News
Extensive Diamond Drilling
Mr. J. Sweeney, of Boyle Brothers,
diamond drill contractors, of Spokane,
stated in a recent address that- his
company  had drilled over 100 miles:	
and were drilling now at the rate of fin price will occur, as most producers
one and a half miles per month. Boyle
Brothers have drills operating at
Anyox, Premier, and B. C. Silver,
they also drilled the Dolly Varden and
Wolf properties.
Financial and Market News gathered
by private direct wires from the
world's market centres by
Burdick, Logan & Company, Limited
737, Granville Street,
Vancouver, B. C.
With Copper over 17 cents, Cotton
over 80 cents, Wool (London) over
$1.00, Rubber 36 cents a pound, with
steel, lumber and other raw and manufactured materials advancing in'
price, it must be admitted that the
long expected period of secondary
inflation is here.; Our retail mer
chants are still selling their goods at
prices that will look very cheap six
months from today! Despite the
increase in credit expansion the reports
of the Federal Reserve Banks, that the
great well of credit is still practically
untouched. Member banks have
scarcely begun to re-discount with the
Federal Reserve System, which menus,
in the absence of any untoward event,
that prices of commodities will contin-;
ue to rise, as the member Banks will
undoubtedly make money on their
own credit, by re-discounting their
own or their customers' paper with
the Federal Reserve, if they can do so
without undue risk. This means further credit expansion, and, consequently, higher prices for commodities.
The fly in the ointment is the price of
farm products, and their rise in price
may be slow but it will be sure. Investors dependant upon income from
securities, should make every effort'to
get the most income compatible with'
absolute safety of principal. A "judicious exchange of securities, in many
cases, will prove profitable.

Steel Prices Work Higher
Further advances in iron and steel
prices resulted from the growing
shortage of material for early delivery.
Pig Iron moved up $1 to $1.50 a ton in
most districts and premiums of from
$3 to $7 a ton were established on
several lines of finished steel. Coke
advances to $7.50 on demand from
Europe and South America.
New York—Price of electrolite copper is slightly weaker. While all the
larger producers are holding firmly at
17 cents delivered, with a considerable
tonnage sold Thursday at that price,
copper can be bought in important
directions at somewhat under 16 7-8
cents delivered. Second-hands are
still willing to sell at 16 3-4 cents aside
$hip New York, while abroad English
dealers are still selling as low as 16.95
cents c. i. t. While the amount of
copper offering under, 17 cents- is in
fair araouut in the domestic market, it
is nodhought thatany material break
are sold well ahead, with consumers as
yet uncovered on considerable of the
metal which they must buy to cover
commitments that are being held for
placing later hi the second quarter,
Demand abroad is in fair volume,
but being satisfied mainly by foreign
dealers, although Copper Export Association has sold a fair tonnage to France
and England during the last 24 hours.
Mineoutputof copper still is 20,000,
000 pounds a month'below world consumption, and everything still favors
producers as to prices rather than
consumers, Present slight weakness
is due to smaller demand during the
last two weeks such as is to be expected before start Of-'another buying
movement. Price of electrolytic copper for domestic shipment is 167-8 to
17 cents a pound delivered to end of
June, with a slight willingness to sell
into July. Lake copper is 161-8 cents
delivered to end of May. Price aside
ship to NeVYork is 16 84 cents with
producers unwilling to meet the price.
Prices for European destinations from
American producers are at levels corresponding with 17 to 171-8 cents c. i. f.

'Mr, Munroe, general manager of the
I Granby  Company.    Mr,  Warren is
reported as saying that it would be
only a very short time until things
[would be humming at Oopper Moun-
[I tain.   He is also quoted as having

absolutely no hitch in the negotiations
J between the Granby Company and the

Canadian Investors Lose  Nine
Million Dollars
Canadians invested $9,000,000 in
the L. R, Steel chain store enterprise, which recently went bankrupt. If these people had invested
their money in companies that are
developing the natural resources of
the oountry they are living in, they
probably would be a whole lot
better off financially, and incidentally building up the country. It is
time Canadians realized that enormous profits are being made by the
developmet of the country's natural
resouroes and that the bulk of the
profits are going abroad.
George Wingfield a Good Sport
Mr. F, M. Mason writing in Mining
Truth, says: George Wingfield has
given W. J. Taylor a short option on
Dolly Varden and Wolf mines, at
Alice Arm. It is understood that Mr.
Taylor has been negotiating for the
sale of the properties before Mr. Wingfield foreclosed his mortgage. By
giving tho option Mr. Wingfield allows an opportunity for the deal to be
consummated, in the event of which
the Taylor Mining Company is to
settle its obligations. At times there
has been some bitter feeling over the
Dolly Varden, but right through Mr.
Wingfield has played the part of a
good sport.
British Capital For Portland
Canal District
A British syndicate is being
formed in London with an authorised capital of £1,000,000 for the
purpose of developing mining
properties in northern Ontario and
the Portland Canal district.
Scientists have at last discovered
that the only difference between a
pauper and a millionaire is $1,000,000.

good beer lies
