Dr. Smitheringale Will
Conduct Mining
Dr. W. V. Smitheringale, mining
engineer of Vancouver, will oon-
duot a series of lectures at Alice
-Arm next week for the benefit of
prospeotors and others interested
in mining. The lectures will be

be "Practical Geology and Mineralogy." The lectures have been
arranged by the Department of
Mines, Victoria.
Dr. Smitheringale conducted a
serieR of lectures at a number of
the larger mining centres throughout the province. last year.
His services were so well received
that is was decided to enlarge the
scope this year and include a number of the smaller mining towns.
Dr. Smitheringale is conducting
a series of lectures at Prince Rupert this week.
It is pointed out by Hon. W. A.
McKenzie, Minister of Mines that
these lectures in small towns are
,.hi an experimental stage, and the
question of how far they will be
oontinued or extended will depend
upon the responses obtained in the
course of the next few months.
It is therefore hoped that everyone
in Alice Arm who can possibly
attend the lectures next week will
do so. Dr. Smitheringale is well
versed in the subjects he will discuss and his lectures should be
very interesting. Arrangements
for the meetings next week are

Presentation Made To
F. E. Patton
A very pleasant event took place
at the Mine Hall on Saturday,
January 31st. when the many
friends of Mr. Frank E. Patton
gathered together to entertain him
at a sooial evening prior to his
leaving for the south. A very enjoyable time was spent, and during the evening Mr. Patton was
the recipient of a very handsome
leather grip, as a marlt of appreciation by his many friends at
Anyox, both at the Mine and the
Beach. He was also presented
with a beautiful wrist watoli for
Mrs. Patton, who has resided in
the south for some time.
Many tributes were paid to Mr.
Patton's sterling qualities, and his
large circle of friends are very
sorry to 'see him depart for the
Mr. Patton was one of the oldest
residents of Anyox—and possibly
the oldest, He has been connected
with the engineering staff at the
Mitifl since the Granby Company
started operations.

Camosum returned to Vanoouver,
where temporary repairs were
made and she proceeded on her
way as soon as possible. The
Northholm was mors seriously
damaged, several men on that boat
having narrow escapes from serious
injury. Both ships received their
injuries above the water line.
Anyox Orchestra Gives
Excellent Concert
A very excellent concert was
given by the Anyox Amateur
Orchestra at the Recreation Hall
on Sunday evening under the
leadership of Stuart Steele.
The opportunity of listening to
this talented orchestra was not
taken advantage of by the people
of Anyox as much as could be
desired, but it is hoped that more
will attend the concerts that
have be arranged for the future.
The programme was nicely
balanced and those present certainly enjoyed the beautiful music,
The programme was as follows:
1. Overture, "The Line Up,"
2. Selection, "Southern Melodies," Orchestra.
3. Duet, Mr. and Mrs. James
4. Trombone Selection, ''A Slippery Success," by Stuart Steel, accompanied by Orchestra.

Choral Society Will Hold
Another Concert

their second concert on April 16th
when something new will be presented in the form of an operetta,
entitled "Penitent Pirates." Rehearsals for this concert will commence from Tuesday next at 7.30
prompt in the United Church Hall,
and regularly every Tuesday evening thereafter.
The Society is practicing something that will undoubtedly appeal
to Anyox folk, as the operetta is
abounding in humor. The mem
bers will have to work hard, and
the committee will appreciate their
continued regular attendance to
ensure a really successful
entertainment, and will welcome
new talent to take part in the
forthcoming concert.
In addition to the "Penitent
Pirates" there will beseveral new
choral items on the program.

E. MOSS, Editor and Publisher,
According to advices from
Ottawa, Premier Bennett does not
give any encouragement to the
west regarding financial support by
the government in the building of a
railway in the Peace River Country to the Pacific coast. The
government, he said, is facing very
heavy financial obligations which
must first receive attention. Neither the Canadian Pacific Railway
or the Canadian National Railways have yet made any statement
in regard to their policy of a Peace
River outlet. Vancouver is still
strongly pushing its claim as the
ideal port, voicing its claims as
being the most southerly point and
its excellent facilities for handling
large quantities of produce. Prince
Rupert continues to draw the
attention of the government and
railway heads to the fact that it
has one of the finest harbors in the
world, unlimited waterfrontage,
and its nearness to the Orient, all
of these natural advantages at present not being used. Stewart vociferously explains its nearness to
the Peace River, its sheltered harbor and also that it is closer to the
Orient than any other port. Stewart also points to the rich jnineral
country traversed by a railway
having a terminus there and is
sure that economic conditions will
not permit another outlet when the
short distance to the Peace River
is taken into consideration. For
our part we hope that Stewart is
successful in her efforts. Failing
that, then Prince Rupert should
enjoy the privilege. Vancouver
is inclined to be rather avaricious.
It would compel the Peace River
farmer to ship his wheat double
the distance. Its action would
sanction the closing of the vast
territory between Stewart and the
Peace River to mining companies
and others, and the same wilderness continue as at present. A
rather narrow minded view.

Provincial Govt.
Victoria, January 26, 1931—Dr.
Knight, Chief Provincial Veterinary
Inspector, is going into the Peace
River district immediately for a
period of two months. The present low price of grain is inclining
the farmers there to start mixed
farming, For this reason it is
essential that they should start
With their cattle in a healthy condition. Dr. Knight hopes in the
time he is there to be able to inspect every herd, and advise as to
the best method of keeping them in
sound shape.
In order to secure a wider market for B.C. apples in Britain,
Hon. T. G. Coventry, Overseas
Markets Representative, recently
sent a letter to all the newspapers
there advising people to buy apples
by the box and assuring them that
the cost would not exceed 15 shillings or about $3.60. The letter
was widely published and was
printed in full by the London Times
just before Christmas, and since
then inquiries and orders have
poured in. Formerly it was customary to sell these best grade
apples at $5 a box, but this year
the rush on the market was so
great that it was found necessary
to cut down in order, to find a
wider market. There is reason to
believe that this move has resulted
in a large increase of permanent
buyers of B.C. apples who will not
object to pay a higher price when
the market advances.
Before leaving for the north last
week the Hon. R. W. Bruhn,
Minister of Public Works, awarded
the contract for remodelling the

that he wished to withdraw his
offer, and the contract was awarded
to the next lowest. The amount is

Some people say mining is dead.
Is this true?   Is it reasonable.
Mining is Canada's fifth greatest
It is one of the means by which*
Canada has been lifted in a few
short years into world prominence
as a nation and a mineral producer.
In 1929 the mineral production of
Canada reached nearly a million
dollars a day or $303,786,000,
exceeding the previous year by
$28,837,000.00. This was the
fourth consecutive year of record-
breaking production.
Mines and mills in every branch
have been taxed to capacity in the
past two years and new equipment
and developments commenced in
1929 or earlier are swinging into
production in 1930. A tremendous
future lies before Canadian mining.

"Caught Short" Is An
Uproarious Comedy
II you won or if you lost on the
last "bull market" in Wall Street,
you will find laughs in a very timely
comedy which will be shown
at the Anyox Theatre on Tuesday.
It is a Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer picture, "Caught Short," and it co-
stars Marie Dressier and Polly
Moran under the direction of Chuck
Riesner, the director of the "Hollywood Revue of 1929."    •
"Caught Short" is, to express it
very simply, the short and very
amusing adventures of a pair of
boarding house landladies in the
finger-burning business of buying
and selling stocks on . margin.
What the adept Marie and the uproarious PoHy can do with such a
situation can be imagined by the
friends of this famous pair of comedians. The love interest of the
story is capably furnished by Anita
Page and Charles Morton, and
excellent .characterizations of typical "boaiders" are furnished by T.
Roy Barnes, Herbert Prior and
Edward Dillion. Nancy Price is
Polly's younger daughter.

Quebec Sets Pace In Winter Sports
Winter sports, in the most historic city of the American,
continent — Old Quebec, cradle of
New World civilization, with the
Canadian Pacific Railway's beautiful Chateau Frontenac Hotel as
headquarters, are again proving a
drawing card for devotees from all
parts of Eastern Canada and the United
States. The great hotel, with its long, fast
tohboggan-slide on Dufferin Terrace and Its
spacious skattaig-rink just outside its doors, offers
something unique in the way of comfort for sport-
lovers. Quebec, too, boasts a fine ski-jump and plentiful opportunities for cross-country work either on skis
or snowshoes. Curling, hockey and sleighing are also
staples of the winter's program, most events bring
rounded off with dancing in the evening.
The season is now in full swing; the International
Snowshoe Convention and the ice-canoe race across
the St. Lawrence on January 31 and February 1; the
famous Eastern Dog-Sled Derby on February 19, 20,
and 21, followed by the traditional Masquerade Ball
n tbe Chateau Frontonac's gracious ball-room, being
imong the high-lights.
For picturesqueness, Canada's Ancient Capital cam
hold its own with any city in the world and tbe surrounding countryside offers a host of opportunities for
sxcurslons. Snow conditions, .following the great
January storm, are reported excellent and those who
have visited the Chatsau Frontenac, either ln winter
or ln summer, have learned that its name for hospitality, accommodation and cuisine is indeed well-earned.
The pictures show: above: a typical dog-team and,
right, the majestic Chateau Frontenac, towering over
Quebec's Lower Town; upper centre and lower-left:
ski-jumpers and, below: visitors out for a run ln the
Chateau Frontenac's dog-sleigh. ' The very youthful
skliers shown middle-left are typical of how young
Quebec takes to winter sports, which have become
famous throughout the American continent and bring
visitors and competitors over Canadian Pacific lines
from most of the larger centres of Eastern Canada
and the United States.

pouentsdo not seem so good without Mildred and  Lillian Dresser
An even score was a fitting
result to this game.
After a long stay in the cellar
tbe Micos came out to give the
Sheiks a trimming on Monday
night in the gym. The winners
showed much improved form, their
checking, passing and shooting
being very accurate, B. Bass and
P. Anderson combining well in tlie
first half scored some very neat
baskets. At half time the Micos
had a substantial lead. The Sheiks
did not get anywhere with their
fancy passing and should have
adopted the more direct methods of
tlieir opponents. Dresser, as usual,
was the mainstay of the Sheiks
and in addition to scoring some
fast baskets, worked very hard
endeavoring to bring the team out
of the hole. Scores: Micos 25,—
Dwyer 8, Anderson'-10, Bass 4,
Dodd 2, Deetb-1. Sheiks 15,-
DresserlO, Gillies-2, Mikeli 3.

Nancy Carroll Seen At
Tonight's Show
Nancy Carroll, the adorable idol
of millions of film fans, is triumphing' in a new dramatic play at the
Anyox Theatre, today, Saturday.
"Laughter" is a vehicle which
gives full opportunity to Miss Car
roll lor a display of her emotional
capabilities. She doesn't miss a
moment of this big chance for new
dramatic honors, Throughout the
tense action of the play Miss Car
roll sweeps along in a superb portrayal of an ex-Follies girl who, as
the wife of a mis-mated marriage,
tries to be loyal—and is, but who
always seems to be victimized by
the irony of circumstances,
Fre'dic March, as a young pian
ist composer who had been in love
with Nancy prior to her marriage to
Frank Morgan, the rich broker,
pops into the picture again as ai
romantic menace, a sort of Bohemian heart thief and troublemaker.
A series of unfortunate events
gets Nancy more and more into ill-
favor with Morgan. Finally she is
accused of the death of a young
sculptor suicide. She eventually
proves her innocence, but the scandal has been too much for her long-
suffering husband, and he breaks
off with her.
