Mine Branch   Smoker
Was Very Successful
Just a grand and glorious evening of freedom and relaxation, was
the smoker which was held at the
Mine Hall on Saturday, Ootober
fith. for members of the Mine
Branch of the Community League.
This was the first venture of this
kind undertaken by the Mine
Branch aud it was a great success.
From the opening remarks by the
president, Mr. W. Forahaw, to the
final singing of "Hail, Hail, the
Gang's all here,'' every moment
was full of entertainment. The
president referred to the unavoidable absence of the men on afternoon shift, and stated that at the
next function these men would be
duly considered. Cheers greeted
his statement that the Mine Branch
of the League had a 99% membership.
T. Waterland as chairman, started the lengthy program with selec
tions by Ole Mandelid, the Yodel-
ing Swede. The fine yodeling of
this artist would do credit to any
radio broadcast and he was recalled
later for further numbers. Ed.
Blundell, accompanied by Jack
Varick on the guitar, gave a delightful harmonica solo.
At this point Mr. Healy expressed his pleasure at seeing so many
members present and predicted a
thoroughly enjoyable evening. He
introduced to the gathering Major
Watt, the blind veteran who was
visiting Anyox on behalf of the
Canadian Institute for the Blind.
Major Watt expressed his delight
at being present and thanked everyone for their splendid support on
the recent tag day for the Blind.
An accomplished pianist, he gave
several musical items during the
evening, which greatly pleased
everyone. He also told, in his own
charming style, a humorous story
which brought down the house.
The program was enlivened with
a series of exhibition boxing bouts,
in which some good talent was
disclosed. Battling Beck and Britannia Kid went three fast rounds
to a draw. Wonder Jenkins, in a
, go with One Round Phillips, nn-
' corked some unexpected surprises
and received a great ovation.
Tusco Turner and Grizzly Simmons
provided the piece-de-resistance in
the third event. Eaoh has size,
weight and a magnificent physique
and mixed it willingly through a
three-round wangle. Referee Windle was somewhat dwarfed against
these heavy weights and had some
difficulty in breaking them in the
clinches. The cleverest boxer on
the oard was Pete Charlie, who
hails from Drumheller. His ducking and dodging tactics completely
baffled his opponent Slim Somerville, who, however adjusted himself gamely and came through with
a number of hefty punches. Bennie Windle controlled the bouts
and T. J. Kirkwood acted as timekeeper.
In the many vocal and instrumental items which followed there
was variety enough to suit all tastes.
Gordon Murphy sang "Blue
Heaven" to his own accompaniment
W. Thompson gave two violin solos
in finished style; Don Myton contributed two items on the guitar,
and James Dale parodied a certain
movie star who is known all over
the civilized world.
Mr. W. B. Maxwell, who was
now called _ upon, lamented his

Major Watts Extends Thanks
For Generous Support
On his recent visit to Anyox in
connection with the appeal for
funds to help the blind, Major
Watt took advantage of an oppor
tunity which was afforded him to
extend thanks for the splendid re
sponse made. The occasion was

held at the Mine Hall on Saturday,
October 6th. Major Watt stated
that Anyox district ranked high in
proportion to its populaton among
other B. C. towns. He proved to
be a good mixer and has a magnetic
personality, entertaining the com
pany witn several fine piano selec
tions and telling a real good story
to top off the whole.
W.  Patterson Honored On
Eve of Departure
When the whistle sounded "down
tools" on Friday October 5th,, W.
Patterson of the mechanical shops,
was surprised to find himself surrounded and held captive by a number of his workmates. Mr. Patterson who left the district on Monday
the 8th. after a residence of six
years here, was made the recipient
of a case of pipes. Mr. Pete Loudon made the presentation with a
few well chosen words, and Mr.
Patterson suitably replied. Mr.
and Mrs. Patterson are en route for
the old country where they will
most likely take up their residence.

A. C. L. Carnival Draws
Large Crowd
The Anyox Community League
Carnival held on Monday, October
8th. provided a new kind of entertainment for many of the younger
element of Anyox. For the older
ones it brought back pleasant memories of the carnivals they attended
in their younger days. A great
many handsome and useful prizes
were won throughout the evening,
and the "barkers" had a great time
attracting attention to their respective booths. There were games to
suit the tastes of everyone, from
horse-racing to housie-housie.
A pedigreed Scotch terrier pup
named "Glendhall MacGregor,"
which a large number of people
had high hopes of winning, was
rattled during the evening. Art
Cade, of the Mine, was the winner
with ticket No. 5222.
Up to 11 o'clock the Carnival held
the floor, and at that hour a delightful buffet supper was served in the
dining room. Dancing was then
indulged in to music supplied by
the Elks' Orchestra, which kept
everyone on their toes with their
tuneful rhythm. It is safe to say
that the venture was a complete
success, and that everyone had a
most enjoyable time.

Trojans Down The Elks
In a Rough Game
Other Games Were Exciting
In the Senior A fixture on Wednesday last, the Elks took a well
deserved beating at the hands of
the Trojans.
Sloppy passing and shooting together with rough house tactics
contributed to an unexciting and
uninteresting game.
The Elks showed none of that
form which humbled the hard rock
men last Friday. Bud Gillies was
allowed tq shoot at will, while
the forwards for the fraternal team
seemed to be off their game completely.
The Trojans, in spite of their
large soore added little in the way
of snappy action to enliven the
game. Of the whole aggregation
only Alex. McDonald and Freddy-
Gordon for the Trojans and Ivor
Davies for the losers deserve
mention. Alex, played a very
effective and steady game, while
Freddy showed better form than
he has for some time. Ivor worked hard all game and was only
prevented from making a higher
score by the steady guarding of
Alex MoDonald.
Trojans: Arne 2, Gillies 12,
Dresser 7. Shields 2, McDonald 2,
Gordon 6—31. Elks: Curry 2,
Gillis, Gillies 2, Davis 7, Dresser 3,
McKinley, Murray—14.
The girls game also showed a
great lack of ability. Though excitement ran high with a close
score throughout the game, the
play did not show the co-ordination
which makes good basketball.
More interest was shown in the
various new fashions in basketball
array, than iu the game itself.
Though losing by one basket, the
mine girls would have undoubtedly
taken the honours iu any fashion
parade. Helen Calderoni and Betty
Muir starred for the Mine girls.
while Kathleen Eve showed her
usual good form in the Spooks line
up strongly seconded by Enjd
Morris. Spooks: Dresser, Salmon
1, Eve 9. Gordon 3, Morris 7. Wenerstrom, Mrs. Wenerstrom.—20.
Mine: Muir 6, Wilkinson, Calderoni 8, Roberts 2, Cannon 2, Arscott
Y. Cannon—18.
Senior basketball kept the fans
on their feet on Friday last. The
new Elks' team out in full strength
for the first time and the Vandals
anxious to double their win on
Monday, gave an added impetus to
the enthusiastic crowd.
We stated last week that Calderoni, Calderoni, Kulai and Co.
would be a hard bunch to stop.
We still think so, but we have seen
the boys that can stop them. From
start to finish Tony never really got
away. Freddie was evidently rattled after half time, while Kulai
was definitely off in  his shooting.
Johnny Gillies, for the Elks showed many of the famous Bud Gillies
characteristics. It must run in the
family. We wouldn't be surprised
to see the brothers fighting for top
place in the scoring list later in the
season. Ivor Davis also played
first class ball. These two as a
forward line, makes it look like "a
nafural." McKinley at centre gave
great support.
The score jumped up alternately
for the two teams and kept excitement at fever pitch throughout the
game. The deciding baskets were
scored   in   the last few minutes.

The Prospector
Prospectors of British Columbia
have been handed a large and varied
number of bouquets both by public
speakers (chiefly political) and in
the press. They have been quoted
as "The Salt of the earth," "The
backbone of British Columbia's
prosperity," "Daring Adventurers,"
"Veterans of the Trail" "Sourdoughs," "Men of Vision" and
many other endearing terms. On
the other hand he has been termed,
(mostly by those who have lost
money in a mining venture) as "A
Damn Fool," "A Born Liar," "A
Dreamer" and "A Hill Billy." We
however, prefer to look, as usual,
on tbe bright side and give the
prospector all "due praise for his
efforts in locating ore bodies that
perhaps will eventually prove a
mine. There are, as in all other
occupations, different methods of
prospecting. Some stake claims
and their prospecting days are over,
they pin their hopes to one or two
properties and hold them perhaps
for ten, twenty, thirty years or
more. If these properties fail to
appeal to examining mining engineers, or if the owner is unreasonable in his price and terms, he probably still owns the property when
he passes into the great beyond to
either tread the streets of solid
gold, where mills and smelters are
unnecessary, or takes the cage for
the deep shaft below, where the
temperature is said to be considerably hotter than the deepest mine
on earth. Then there is the prospector who possesses the restless,
roving spirit, he stakes his claims
in a likely district, and if fortune
does not quickly smile he packs his
roll and is off to fresh fields. His
field, perhaps covers the whole of
the North American continent, or
he may confine his activities within
a radius of a few hundred miles.
Among the latter class came a prospector to Alice Arm a short time
ago. His range covers the north
coast. This year he spent two
months prospecting for gold in the
country adjacent to the head of
Hastings Arm. During that time
his total bill for food supplies was
$9.60. These are the kind of men
that the province can justly be
proud of, for as long as they endure
new mines will be found and our
most prosperous industry perpetuated.
"Yes the smallest thing seems to
upset my wife. The other day she
was doing a cross-word puzzle and
she asked me, 'what is a female
sheep?' 'Ewe' I said, and she burst
jnto tears."
Your Responsibilities When
You Become a Company
This is the first of a series of legal
articles to be written by Mr. Carl
Stewart of Anyox. Mr. Stewart is
a member of the British Columbia
Bar Association. He formerly
practiced law in Vancouver, and
each week an article on different
legal problems will appear in our
In these articles which of necessity must be short we are simply
going to try and clear up some of
the fog that surrounds a great
many legal transactions that some
one of us is frequently contacting
with. Because they are legal there
is a tendency to avoid attempting to
get a real understanding of  them.
A study of law will disclose that}
it is only a compilation of countless
opinions expressed on a certain problem until a rule has been formulated that will in the majority of
cases provide a fair arib just decision.
The value of a general understanding of legal principals has become so apparent that most universities now include a commercial
law course and no business course
is complete without it.
I was asked this week by a party
who had purchased shares in a
company about the company organization and his responsibility for
some debts ofthe company and I
might just as well deal with it in
this article as any other.
Companies: There are two main
reasons why we have what we call
The first is that it enables a large
number of people to engage in business together in a smooth and efficient manner, avoiding a confusion
that might otherwise arise from so
many people each trying to take
part in the company's operations.
It also protects the public to the
extent that they are given a definite
method of proceeding against the
many members of the group forming the company.
Every person who becomes a
shareholder in a company is bound
by the company's charter, which
consists of two main documents
filed for record in the government
ofice of the Registrar of Companies.
The first document contains the
powers of the company, that is,
what business it can legally carry
on. The second document contains
a set of rules and regulations that
control the operations of the company. This latter document sets
out the number and amount of the
shares the company is divided into
. . . what meetings the company
will hold . . . who can vote at the
meetings . . . how many directors
they will have , . . how the directors are elected . . . what powers
they have, and generally all the
regulations necessary for the smooth
operating of the company.
The first of these documents,
setting out the powers of the com
pany is called the Memorandum of
Association and the one containing
the rules and regulations is called
the Articles of Association.
The second reason for the existence of companies has now become
by far the more important of the
two and is the reason why few men
venture into a business undertaking
without first incorporating a comp
any for the purpose.
By means of a company, you and
I could engage in business and if
we failed after piling up a lot of
debts the company creditors could
not come on us personally for our
company debts. You have no
doubt noticed that companies often
fail owing large sums of money and
the creditors cannot collect al-'
though the men operating the company are men of means. Although
this appears to work a hardship on
the creditors it is designed to give
a man who has honestly tried and
failed a chance to start up in business again, which he might not be
able to do if he were liable to pay
off a large volume of debts.
The words "Limited" or "Ltd."
that appear in a company name are
notice lo the public that the liability
of the shareholders for the debts of
the company is limited. In mining
companies you find the words "Non
Personal Liability" or-'N. P. L.,"
so that if you are a shareholder or
take shares in such a company,
your liability for the debts of the
company is limited ... to what?
It is limited to whatever you owe
on the shares you bought. If you
have paid for them in full you owe
nothing and the company creditors
cannot come on you for any of the
company debts. Of course if you
choose to purchase shares only
making a small payment, you can
be forced to pay the balance to the
creditors even if the company is out
of business.
A great many stock salesmen,
when they find a prospect has one
hundred dollars to invest, will try
to sell him five hundred dollars
worth of stock, accepting his one
hundred dollars as a part payment
and suggesting that he will never
have to pay the balance as the company will prosper and the dividends
will do it for him. Should the company not prosper the creditors can
make him pay up the balance of
four hundred dollars. Should the
prospect only purchase one hundred
dollars worth of stock, paying for
it in full, the creditors have no claim
on him.
Next week we will have a look at
the share construction and capitalization of companies.

A Prospector Must Be
Tough to Carry On
There are many records of hardships undergone by prospectors, but
few have had the experience which
befell Nels Nelson, 72 years of age,
who was searching for ore near
Ketchikan, southeastern Alaska, a
short time ago. His boat was
swamped in the heavy surf, but he
managed to reach' shore by kicking off his boots in the water. As
a result his feet were not protected
from the shells and  rocks on  the
shore and were badly cut which
prevented him from walking very
far. Two days later he recovered
the sail of his boat, which served as
a tent as well as a bed. He had no
matches to start a fire and the only
water he could get was a little that
had seeped into crevices. He ate
grass and wild peas. After six
days a castaway on the barren
•beach, help arrived. A couple of
good meals and a sleep and the old
boy was 0. K. again—it was just a
little incident in a life where anything may happen.—Western Canada Mining News

fhe Discoverer's Voice Echoes Down Four Centuries
Four hundred yean ago the little group of Redslrins
and French Voyageurs, who gathered around
Jacques Cartier at Gaspe, needed no aid to hear the
great discoverer of Canada declare the land the property
of "Le Roy de France." This year, however, so great
were the crowds of visitors at the commemoration
exercises, that a large Northern Electric Public Address
System was required that all might hear what was said
on that historic site.
Top: In the left foreground beside the cross, and in the
circle, are the great horns of the huge Public Address
System installed by National Sound for this historic
occasion. Right inset is a close-up of the plaque on
the cross which was unveiled by the Prime Minister,
R. B. Bennett.
Left: The landing of Jacques Cartier at Gaspe in 1534,
by Sherriff Scott, which hangs in the Grill Room of the
Log Chateau of the Seigniory Club.
A Fitting Tribute to Two Great Discoveries
Y a curious coincidence the unveiling of the bust of Jacques Cartier, the gift of the French Govem-
mJ ment, on September first, on the Montreal Bridge which now bears his name, commemorated not
alone the great discoverer of Canada, but also the Sixtieth Anniversary of Alexander Graham Bell's discovery of Ue principles of the telephone in Brantford, by virtue of the fact that a special pubUc
address system was used that the vast crowd of spectators might hear what was said. This was installed

Mine Smoker—Continued
singing talent but expressed his
great pleasure at being present and
hoped that this smoker would be
succeeded by many others during
the ooming winter. Thompson and
Berkhoven combined niceiy in an
instrumental duet. Somewhat out
of the ordinary was the singing of
an Italian quartette and they were
very well received. Eddie Phillips
gave "Mandalay" in pleasing voice
and a tuneful Mine Quintette delighted with "Sweet Adeline" and
"My Wild Irish Rose."
Credit is certainly due the committee in charge for their successful work in making the evening
enjoyable, as it was undoubtedly a
pleasing interlude in the routine of
everyday life at the mine.
"Help the Blind" Fund Is
Well Supported
Giving their full- hearted support
to the appeal for funds for the blind
people of British Columbia, the residents of Anyox contributed the
splendid sum of $253.00 on Tag
Day, October 5th. Of this amount
the sum of $25.00 was donated by
the members of the Collison of
Kincolith Chapter, I. O. D, E., and
$10.00 by the Rover Troop of Anyox. The amount collected for
tags indicates how well and truly
the public of the district sympathizes with this splendid cause.
The committee of the I. O. D. E.
who had charge of this undertaking
extend their hearty thanks to those
ladies who gave their services in
this cause, and also to the general
public for their splendid response

The Anyox Derby Was
Great Attraction
During the recent Carnival staged
by the Anyox Community League
the annual Anyox Derby was held,
in which some of the best horses of
the country took part. "Maybe"
the dark horse proved an easy
winner. "Shamrock" was second
and "Tanglefoot" third. There
were seven entries altogether and a
large crowd witnessed the "thrilling race."
The drawing of the Sweepstake
in connection with the Anyox
Derby took place last Monday evening. It was conducted in the usual
manner in that the stubs were
thoroughly mixed by two of the
fair sex and then put into a revolving box,that gave them a further
mixing. As one lady drew the
name of a horse out of a hat, the
other lady drew a stub out of the
box and the number of same was
given that horse.
There were fourteen horses in all
but before the race took place seven
of the horses were scratched, leaving ouly seven starters. No. 1088
drew "Maybe" the winner;No. 1443
drew "Shamrock" and No.1109
drew "Tanglefoot." The other
lucky numbers were: 1496, 1104,
1040,1531, 1004, 1144,1098, 1067,
1150, 1503 and 1495. Every number received a prize.
