The Act Respecting The
Dolly Varden Mines
Govt, can Take Up or Use
Steel at Any Time
Reports published last week re
garding the taking over of the
Dolly Varden Mines Railway right-
of-way by the Government, gave
the impression that no action
could be taken by the Government
for two years. It appears, however, thai such is not the case. A
study of the Act, a copy of which
was received at the Herald Office
this week, shows that the Government has reserved the right to use
or remove the rails from the right-
of-way at any time pending their
removal by the former owners.
Following is a copy ol the Act, the
title of which is: "An Act respecting the Right-of-way of the Dolly
Varden Mines Railway."
Whereas by virtue of certain enabling Acts of the Legislature, the
Dolly Varden Mines Railway was
heretofore constructed and operated
over certain public lands of the
Province, consisting of lands theretofore occupied in part by a public
highway and in part by a pack-trail
used by the public, and was so constructed and operated without
charge or payment of any kind to
the Crown for the right-of-way
occupied thereby:
And whereas the said enabling
Acts provided as a condition precedent to the operation of the said
Railway that on completion thereof
the said pack-trail should be restored
in as good a condition and as convenient a location, as nearly as
possible as it originally had, and
further provided for the forfeiture
of the rights and privileges, granted
by the said Act upon failure to operate the said Railway:
And whereas the said pack-trail
has never been restored, and the
said Railway has not been operated
lor several years and is now in disrepair and unsafe for operation; and
it is necessary in the public interest
that all rights existing under the
said enabling Acts be forfeited to
the Crown, and that the said right-
of-way be made available for use
with other adjoining lands as a
public highway:
Therefore His Majesty, by and
with the advice and consent of the
Legislative Assembly of the Province of British Columbia, enacts as
1, This Act may be cited as the
"Dolly Varden Mines Railway
Right-of-way Act."
Mine Branch Discussed
Disposal of Funds
At Meeting
Many suggestions were made at
the annual meeting of the Mine
Branch, A. C. L., as to the best
m'ethod of disposing of surplus funds
when the camp finally closed. These
followed somewhat, the suggestions
made at the meeting of the Beach
Branch, held the previous evening,
There was considerable opposition
however, to the idea of helping
allegedly needy families with the
expense of moving etc. although
nothing definite was decided upon.
All suggestions were fully discussed
and it was finally decided that the
matter be left over until a late date,
when a joint meeting of the Mine
and Beach Branches would be held
and more definite data would be
Requests were made by some
members for another Smoker, along
the lines of the successful one held
last fall.
It Blew and Blew and Then
It Blew Some More
Cold north winds, direct from
Canada's refrigerator plant in the
Artie circle, blew their way through
every house crack this week and
caused young and old to hustle
along the streets. It put the dancing white caps on the waves in the
inlet between Anyox and Alice
Arm, and when Capt. Jens Larsen
docked his stout mail launch at the
Alice Arm wharf on Monday she
was sheathed in ice where heavy
sers had swept her, as she bucked
the northern gale. The editor of
the Herald was a passenger up the
inlet on Monday, which will explain
any unusual plumpness of the fish
caught this week.
Miss Beatrice Watson, of the
staff of the Beaoh Cafe, had the
misfortune to slip on a pebble near
the Laundry on Monday morning
breaking a bone in her foot. She
was promptly conveyed to the hospital for treatment.
Quiet Anyox Wedding
On Thursday
A pretty wedding was solemnized
on Thursday evening, March 7th
at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Not"
man Roberts, when Ruby V. Llewellyn, second daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. J. W. Llewellyn of Terrace
B. C. became the bride of David
Hamilton, eldest son of Mr. and the
late Mrs. James Hamilton, of Blan
tyre, Glasgow, Scotland.
• The Rev. E. Baker officiated
Mrs. N. Roberts was the matron of
honor and Mr. Roberts acted as
best man. The bride wore a blue
gray swagger suit with accessories
to match and her bouquet was of
pink roses. Mrs. Roberts chose a
royal blue knitted : suit with hat
and shoes to match and carried a
bouquet of roses. A number of
friends of both parties attended the
reception which followed, the
bride's table being decorated in
pink and white, with a three-tier
cake in the centre. The young
couple, who are well known, were
the recipients of many expressions
of good wishes. They will reside
in Anyox temporarily.

In that semi-formal, free and
easy manner which sets them on a
distinct plane of their own, the
Elks of Anyox held their annual
ball in their hall on Friday, March
1st., when one hundred and fifty
guests spent a most enjoyable
evening of dancing and merriment.
The hall was artistically deoorat
ed, the- Elks' colors of purple and
white, being used with splendid
effect. A gondola laid across the
front of the hall, was worked in
black and gold. It was a unique
feature of the decorative scheme
and was evidently the work of a
master mind. Ward's Orchestra
supplied music, which was greatly
enjoyed by the dancers, and the
supper served iu the dining hall
left nothing to be desired.
The evening will long remain a
happy memory in the minds of
those who were privileged to be

for the large attendance at the
Annual General Meeting of the
Mine Branch, A. C. L, in the Mine
Hall on Thursday, February 28th.
W. /Forshaw, president was in
the chair, Minutes of the previous
annual meeting were read and
adopted. A lengthy report, covering the activities of the Branch for
the past year, was presented by the
chairman, and the secretary of the
League, V. S. McRae, presented the
financial report. It was unanimously decided that under present
conditions an election of a new
Council would not be held and tlie
present Council were asked to
continue for the ensuing year.
Will Cost Anyox People Lots
Of Money To Move ^
It is estimated that it will cost
the people of Anyox approximately
$56,000 to move from , Anyox to
Vancouver, when the plant of the
Granby Company closes down.
There are around 1500 adults
who will pay $30.00 each for fares
which accounts for $45,000.
Freight paid on household goods
by 350 married persons at $30.00
oach would total another $10,500
and approximately another $500
will be paid for half fares for children and excess baggage of single
High Silver Prices May Mean
Work At Alice Arm
Silver prices soared to between
58c. and 59c. an ounce this week.
With silver around the 60c. mark
it is quite possible that the Britannia Mining & Smelting Co. who
control the Toric mine, will resume
development work at Alioe Arm
this year if present prioes hold until
the early summer. Other companies also may become interested iu
the silver ore properties of the
Alice Arm district.
Lome Falconer, who has been
spending holidays with his parents
at Alice Arm left on Monday for

from Anyox and is spending holidays with his aunt, Mrs. H. Nucich
at Alice Arm.
W. J. Asselstine Gives
Address At Chamber
Of Mines
"There is a place in the mineral
industry for every British Columbia youth for a great many years
to come," declared Mr. W. J. Asselstine, M. L, A. for Atlin, in an address last week, before British Columbia Chamber of Mines.
"I regret that it was my misfortune, between the ages of 16 and
19, not to have the opportunity to
become acquainted with the mineral occurrences in British Columbia
that the Chamber of Mines is explaining at this time to every youth
in Vancouver and through its various branches to the outlying mining
Mr. Asselstine declared that some
of the successful mining operators
of British Columbia should create
a scholarship for the classes operated for prospectors by the government, so that those most fitted
could put tlieir knowledge to some
use for the province and themselves.
The speaker.praised the work of
the B. C. of Mines in establishing
classes in Vancouver, distributing
mining knowledge and generally
assisting the mining industry, and
urged Vancouver citizens to give
the institution their best support.
Mr. Asselstine declared that taxation is striking hard at the gold
mining industry of the province.
The Dominion Government, he said,
discriminates against it in the gold
tax and the Provincial Government
puts on a tremendous tax on power
in the form of the fuel oil tax.
Local  Swimmer   Will
Compete In Big Race
People of this district will be
interested to learn that a local
swimmer—Mr. Gordon Campbell—
will be a competitor in the 15 mile
marathon swim, at the Canadian
National Exhibition this year.
This annual event, which is promoted by Wrigley's Limited and
held in conjunction with the C. N.
Exhibition at Toronto, is held in
Lake Ontario, over a distance of
fifteen miles, draws competitors
from all over Canada and the United States. The first prize is a
purse of around $17,000.00, which
has been won for the last two years
by Marvin Nelson, of the U. S.
Campbell is a long-distance swimmer of exceptional ability and is
considered by his backers—a group
of Vancouver men—to have a good
chance of winning. WWBWWHBBIrSrHW

The  Dolly Varden
Railway Future
In our news columns this week
we are publishing a copy of the
Act respecting the Right-of-way of
tho Dolly Varden Mines Railway.
A perusal of which shows that the
Provincial Government has taken
over all rights formerly held under
charter. This decision of the government will undoubtedly mark a
new epoch in the mining history of
Alice Arm. It will provide transportation by rail or truck road up
the Kitsault Valley without hindrance to anyone. The road will be
for use by big companies, little
ones, prospectors or' tourists. It
will be kept in a state of repair by
the government either for light or
heavy traffic. If big mines are
developed in the Upper Kitsault
Country then the road will be put
in. shape to handle heavy traffic.
The decision of the Government to
take over the railway right-of-way
is the best news Alice Arm has received for a long time. Ample
transportation facilities for the development and mining of the big
ore bodies of the Kitsault valley are
now assured, and taking in consideration the recent rise in silver
prices, it perhaps will not be so very
long before the Kitsault road is one
of the busiest roads serving a mining district in British Columbia.
Canada's Big
Unemployment Problem
There were 1,182,12S persons in
Canada in receipt of direct relief
during 1934. These startling figures were recently revealed in the
House of Commons. It is a stupendous total, and, we believe far
higher than the average person realized. These figures mean that
over one out of every ten persons is
kept by the government. Of this
amount 83,540 reside in British
Columbia. We have been told that
conditions are improving and that
unemployment is decreasing, but
the decrease must be much more
rapid in the future than in the past
or the unemployment problem will
surely bring disaster to the country.
It is estimated that during the past
live years direct relief to unemployed and their dependents has cost
Canada $418,000,000. These figures were compiled by the Financial
Post of Toronto and show the gtav-
ity of the situation. It is high time
that the Federal and Provincial
Governments met in conference and
solved this great problem. With
such a tremendous area of undeveloped territory as Canada possesses,

the Statutes of 1920.
3. All rights of every person
under the enabling Acts to the use
and occupation of the land and
right-of-way over which the Dolly
Varden Mines Railway runs are
hereby forfeited and cancelled; and

or the Schedules thereto, shall revert to and are hereby vested in

right of any person to use or occupy
the same and from all easements,

of such directions and requirements
as the Chief Engineer of the Department of Public Works may, in
his discretion, give or make for the
protection of the rights of the Crown
and of all persons who may hereafter be permitted to use the said
land and right-of-way, the persons
owning the rails of the said railway
now on the said land and right-of-
way may remove the said rails therefrom at any time within a period of
two years from the commencement
of this Act; but all rails not so removed   which  remain  on  the said
ind or right-of-way at the expiration
of that period shall thereupon vest
in and become the property of His
Majesty, in right of the Province,
absolutely freed from the right of
tny person to use or possess the
same and from all liens, charges, or
encumbrances of any person.
(2.) Pending the removal of the
said rails pursuant to the provisions
of subsection (1), the Chief Engineer of the Department of Public
Works, acting on behalf of His
Majesty, may use or permit the said
rails to be used, or may move the
same or any part thereof on the
said land and right-of-way, or may
remove the same or any part thereof from the said land and right-of-i
way, without incurring any liability
of any nature by reason of the use,
moving, or removal thereof.

Potato Now Being Brought
Up To Date
The next thing now is a streamlined potato. Down in Rochester,
New York, they have developed
yellow, red and purple potatoes, and
some with stripes of color, according to the Agricultural Department
of the Canadian National Railways.
We presume these jazzy potatoes
are being developed for use in night
clubs and other places where their
bizarre coloring will blend with the
decorations. Streamlined potatoes,
we think, would go well for serving
on streamlined trains.
Thirteen Years of Progress
ON the third of February, 1922,
the first three-element vacuum
tube made in Canada was manufactured in the Montreal Plant of
the Northern Electric Company,
Limited. This was a repeater tube
for telephone use, and was followed
in May by the "Peanut", the radio
receiving tube known from coast to
coast, and bevoml, as the "Necromantic Bottle of the Age". Today,
one hundred and forty standardized
types of radio vacuum tubes are
manufactured in Canada, not to
mention those used for telephone
communication and other purposes.
Above, the peanut tube is shown
beside a. rule for comparison. The
bottom picture shows H. A. Robinson, Northern Electtic Radio Engineer, showing to a fair visitor one
of the new 35,000 watt water cooled
transmitting tubes used in Canada's
newest and most powerful Broadcasting Station CRY in Winnipeg.
This tube equals the combined output of more than 12,000,000 peanut
tubes; which serves to illustrate the
gigantic steps which science has
made in the past thirteen years.
British hospitality and British Columbia foods blend happily in
making our guests comfortable.

CanaDA-The Ideal Vacation Land
a Country of scenic Charm and Outdoor Recreation
J|N recent years Canada has
become one of the most
popular playgrounds of the
North American continent
and millions of tourists visit
this country annually, in
search of recreation.
Canada possesses an extensive system of modern highways, with good
secondary roads linking together the
main routes of travel. Excellent
train services are in operation between the principal cities, while
steamship lines connect lake and
ocean ports. Every class of travel
accommodation is available, from
tourist camp to luxurious hotel. Our
larger Canadian cities possess some
ef the finest hotels in the world and
the majority of smaller cities and
towns have modern establishments
which cater to the travelling public.
Recreational  Attractions Nearby
Within reasonable touring distance of the main c&tres of population, recreational attractions of
outstanding merit are to be found.
Lakes and rivers well stocked with
fish, hunting, areas of vast extent and
camping grounds in their natural
state, are only a few of the many
features which make the country a
popular vacation land during ail seasons of the year. An atmosphere
of old France permeates Quebec and
the Maritimes, while Ontario and
the Western provinces have much to
offer by way of historic sites and
Numerous Canoe Trips
For those who desire a vacation
close to nature, a canoe trip is ideal
and Canada's extensive system of
rivers and lakes offers a limitless
choice of route and type of trip.
For the novice there are many trips
close to civilization, which may be
taken with comfort and perfect
safety, while unmapped and even
unexplored regions challenge the expert and the adventurous. Canoes
and equipment may be rented and
guides are available in practically
all district*. • Subject to reasonable
fire prevention regulations tbe caaoe-
its, camper, camera hunter or
student of wild life, may come and
go, unrestricted, through the country's vast forested area.
Excellent   Fishing
Canada's fishing waters, on account of their extent and diversified
nature, provide an exceptional range
of sport for the angler. The game
fiVh include, salmon, brook trout, lake
trout, bass, maskinonge, pike, pickerel, grayling, steelhead and tuna.
Intelligent protection and constant
re-stocking help to keep up the supply of fish in the popular districts,
while in the more remote areas there
are still plenty of virgin waters. The
cost of fishing licences is moderate
and the open seasons are long.
Golf  and  Tennis  Popular
Canada is well supplied with golf
courses and new ones are being built
in every province. No city is without
at least one golf club and most of the
larger towns and popular summer re
sorts have courses,   Tennis is aim
popular in all parts of the country.
Government Bureau Free
Information Service
A number of specially prepared
booklets on Canada's recreational
attractions and automobile road maps
indicating the main connecting highways between one province and another may be obtained free of charge
by adults, from the National Development Bureau of the Department of the Interior, at Ottawa. The
Bureau also has on file information
concerning practically all phases of
recreation in Canada, which will
be gladly provided, upon request.
In order that the most complete information may be supplied rt is desirable that applicants be as specific as
possible as to the areas in which,interested.

No, gentle reader, we are not
trying tn bewilder you with a
mixture'of colors or quoting next
year's color styles in basketball
uniforms, but. believe it or not, all
the above color combinations appeared in the game last Monday
between the Warriors and Foundry. It was what might be termed
a "riot of color." The referee, with
some sort of uncanny insight,
managed to distinguish the players
except in one instance, when he
gave a personal aud found that the
error was committed against a
member of the same team ! Ah
well !
By way of contrast, all the players iu the other two games of the
evening were in correct uniforms.
Vandals Badly Beaten
By Trojans
With their scoring machine
twisted and broken, the Vandals
could do little against the Trojans
in the Senior A game on Monday
last, and the latter stopped just one
short of fifty points to nineteen.
The miners were practically buried
under a landslide. Luok was
against them from the start, as
within two minutes Kulai was sent
to the dressing room. As Fred
Calderoni was minus and the Trojans defence was perfect, the miners
had to rely almost entirely upon
individual effort and worked desperately to stave off defeat. Tro-
lans piled up 20 points before Van
dais scored. The teams: Vandals,
Watson 8, Calderoni 10, Kulai,
Gourlay, Woodman, McMillan 1,

the Foundry on Monday last, but
the didn't have enough. They

the score, which stood 23 to 12
when the whistle blew.
