185 Veterans of Anyox
and Alice Arm Celebrate
Armistice Day
The Anyox Service Association
held their Animal Banquet in the
Beaoh Mess House on Wednesday,
November 11th. at 9 p.m. This
was a new departure from previous
years, where it has been held in
the Reoreation and Mine Halls.
It enabled those who had to supply the demands of the inner man
to give more prompt and attentive
The dining room was suitably
decorated for the occasion and presented a very pleasing appearance,
one table extended one end of the
hall and joining it at each end
were two tables for the full length
of the room, seated at the head of
the table was the chairman, Dr. D.
R. Learoyd, and supporting him on
either side were Mrs. E. Yard, Mrs.
M. Smith, Mrs. Serjeant. Miss
Stewart, and Miss Cameron. At
the end of the hall, the Anyox
Brass Band were stationed, and at
9 p.m. the dining room was tilled
to capacity, with everyone feeling
in the very best of spirits. There
were 185 guests present.
The Band, under Bandmaster J.
Varnes, started the ball rolling
with a Military Maroh.
The chairman then made his
opening remarks, and extended a
hearty welcome to the visitors
present from Alice Arm, and then
informed those that he had a number of toasts on the list before him
and before starting with the festivities he asked everyone to arise
and drink to the health of His
Majesty tho King. After this was
done tlie uext order from general
headquarters was to make an
attack on the good things provided
in front of them.
At the conclusion of the assault,
when the eatables were demolished,
no time was lost by the chairman
in carrying out the lengthy programme which he had outlined.
The second toast on the list was
to "Our Fallen Comrades." which
was replied to by Mr. J. A.
Stephens, who also quoted a piece
of poetry suitable to the occasion
by James Wetcombe Riley "We
are not dead."
The third toast on the list was
to "Our Country Canada," which
was replied to by Mr. R. H. Manzer.

Mr. Cutler Gives High
School Students an
Instructive Address
Mr. R. 0. Cutler gave a very
interesting lecture to the High
School students on aviation, on
Friday evening, the 6th. He
started with the infancy of the
aeroplane from 1908, taking in all
the construction details, the difficulties of fight in that time when
a flight of one hour's duration was
considered to be good. He then
took his attentive listeners along
step by step until arriving to the
planes used at the present day of
being a highly efficient means
of transportation. His remarks
dwelt with the deadly effects that
aeroplanes and airships could be
put to as machines of destruction
in future wars, when taking into
consideration an airship like the
Sheuadoah, which has a lifting
power of 160 tons dead weight.
The lecture was instructive from
an educational viewpoint, also
having the desired object to educate the young mind of the coming generation of horrors of future

High Grade Encountered
at LaRose Mine
High grade silver ore was encountered ii( the crosscut drift at
the LaRose mine last Saturday,
and it is expected that this ore is
the same vein as shows in the
shaft. The width or persistence of
the ore has not yet been determined, as a cave-in occurred in the
tunnel during the early part of the
week, and it was necessary to remove this rock before operations
could be continued. Work in the
crosscut tunnel is now being
undertaken, and the result of the
next week is being watched with
great interest.

Seven years ago last Wednesday, November 11 th. the bloody
slaughter that had convulsed the
world for four years and four
months came to a halt, and the
tired soldiers of the British Empire
in the mud and misery of the shell
swept war areas of France and
Belgium, gave a yell of joy that
has echoed down to the present
time. So also did their comrades who were fighting the
Empire's battles on the scorching
plains of Mesopotamia, or amidst
the biting cold winds of bleak
Siberia, and a dozen other far
flung posts on land and on sea.
For those who had lived through
the horrors of modern warfare,
November 11 th. is a day of deliverance, and a day of rejoicing.
It is the day that the former
mighty war lords of Germany admitted defeat, and therefore is one
of the red letter days of the year,
not only for the soldiers, but for
everyone. It is, however, for the
soldiers and sailors of the Empire,
a very special day, and is celebrated by them as is no other day.
It is a day when they all gather
together, and with music and song,
recount their adventures of when
they were "over there." The
Anyox Service Association was
formed chiefly for this purpose, and
every year the boys of the allied
armies and navies, who were in
uniform during the world struggle,
celebrate the big day with a banquet. The Anyox Service Association is doing splendid work in
cementing the chain of friendship
made during the war, for without
such an organization the boys
would not be able to fittingly
celebrate the great day of November 11 th.
Government Has Big
Road Programme
In a recent article on the progress of the Province's road work.
Hon. Dr. Sutherland, Minister of
Public Works, states that splendid
advance has been made with the
programme which the department
lias mapped out. The new road
through the Fraser canyon will be
completed by next summer. The
road between Quesnel and Prince
George is receiving a gravel surface this year. Work done on the
Prince George-Hazelton road enables motorists to travel between
those two places, a distance of 300
miles. Work is continuing out of
Prince Rupert on the road which
will eventually link that city up
with the northern interior. The
Edgewood-Vernon road, which
connects Okanagan and Arrow-
lakes, was finished some time ago.
The completion of the highway between Nelson and Kaslo is well
under way. Three miles of road,
heavy rock work, are under contract to connect Golden and Yoho
Park. Six miles of a trunk road
up the Bella Coola valley was
finished during this summer. The
aim of the Department, as put by
the Minister, is to open up the incomparable valleys of the province
to the settlers who will engage in
the development of its great
natural resources above aud beneath the soil, and by good roads
widen the markets for the products of the farm, the forest and
the mine.

Mining Fatalities Shows
Wonderful Decrease
iu B. C.
Indicative of the magnificent results achieved under the policy inaugurated by Hon. William Sloan,
Minister of Mines, when he assumed that important portfolio in 1916.
the annual toll of lives olaimed
from mine-workers in British
Columbia has annually been cut
down until today this province
ranks ahead of other mining countries in the small number of casualties among underground workers,
and is looked upon as a shining
example of what oan be done to
protect the lives of workers in the
mines by intelligent and persistent
effort in enacting adequate regulations enforcing mine safety.
In the lirst quarter of the present year, according to figures issued by Hon. Mr. Sloan, not a single
fatality occurred in the coal mines
of British Columbia, and but one
death in the metalliferous mines.
In the same quarter in 1924 there
were five fatalities. This showing
is all the more satisfactory in view
of the great increase in mining
operations in the province during
the past year. For the whole of
1924, according to Hon. Sloan's
figures, the ratio of accidents per
1,000 men employed in the coal
mines was 1.66, compared with
7.32 in 1923 and 10.42 in 1915.
The number of fatal accidents
per 1,000,000 tons produced during
1924 was 4.52, compared with 11.-
