Meeting Held Of Anyox
Boy Scout Assoc.
A meeting of the Anyox Boy
Scout Association was held recently, members of the oomniittee present being D. P. Williams, W. V.
Eve, R. J. A. Manning and W. R.
Lindsay (chairman). The annual
financial report was submitted by
secretary V. S. MoRae. The mater of the Boy Scout summer camp
was discussed, and the arrangements for this annual event will be
governed largely by the condition
of the pooket books of the parents
and those immediately concerned-
Reports of the year's work were
I given by all three leaders: Cubmas-
ter Cloke for the Wolf Cubs, Scoutmaster Gale for the Scouts, and
Rover Leader Cutler for the Rovers.
All these reports were eminently
Due to pressure of other duties,
Mr Jack Cloke tendered his resignation as Cubmaster aud this was
aocepted with regret. A hearty
vote of thanks was passed for his
services. Mr. Cloke has done much
good work for the Cubs, and his
loss will be keenly felt. As a temporary measure Scoutmaster Gale,
assisted by the Scout Patrol Leaders, will look after the Cubs, of
which there are twelve. It is expeoted that another six will be
taken in shortly.
Mention was made in the report
that the Scouts had rendered assistance to the Hospital Board by
collecting empty medicine bottles.
Their to the publio in delivering parcels at Christmas time
from the post office was also referred to.
Improvements are being made
by the Scouts to their meeting
quarters. Curtains have been put
up and the plaoe made more comfortable. The Rovera are to have
new quarters in the basement of
the Gymnasium a large part of the
lounge room having been granted
to them for this purpose.
Mr. Baniford, a commissioner iu
B. C. for the Rovers, is now looated
in Anyox and has already addressed both the Scouts and the Rovers.
He stressed the idea of "Servioe to

badges are awarded.

Spring Activity Around
Alice Arm
The mining industry at Alice Arm
may be at a low ebb, but the woodcutting business is certainly booming. Stacks of it are piled on the
flats and still more stacks decorate
the front and back yyds of many
residences, while the woodsheds are
bulging with the coming summer's
and next winter's fuel, and still the
piles are accumulating.
Gardening however, will soon
displace wood cutting as the chief
outlet of pent-up energies. The
snow is off of most of the lower
down town gardens and already an
occasional gardener may be seen,
wielding spade and rake. Cold
weather, however, retards even the
most venturesome from planting
seeds just yet. The long days are
here but the soft spring breezes are
The spring is backward this year.
Even the robins have failed to appear, and talking of robins, Morris
Peterson has a brand new home all
ready for them in his garden.
Robins are great cut worm gobblers
so that Morris and his neighbours
should not worry much this year in
that respect.
The recent statement of President
Roosevelt of the United States in
regard to silver has revived hope in
many despondent breasts in Alice
Arm. Just when everything seemed gone to heck and all hope of
higher silver prices had vanished,
the U. S. President has interested
himself in the silver problem. If
silver prices should rise, Alice Arm
will no doubt again become a town
of bustle and activity and everyone
will feel a lot happier than at present.
Now the children are the happiest
persons in town. School closed
for Easter holidays yesterday.
Series of First-Aid Classes
With the idea ol' spreading a
knowledge of first aid to the sick
and injured, a series of special
olasses will commence on Monday
the 17th. at both the Beaoh and
the Mine. The course will last until the end of May, and men are
urged to learn something about
these important phases of safety
The Mine olasses will be held iu
the Mine Hall on the afternoons
and evenings of Mondays and Fridays, and the Beaoh olasses will be
held in the Recreation Hall on
Monday aud Friday evenings.
Examination for certificates will
be held at the end of the course.
Dr. J. T. Mandy Was
Recently Married
A quiet wedding took place at
First United Church Vancouver on
April 4th. when Miss E. Madge
Jones of Richmond Ind. became the
bride of Dr. J. T. Mandy of Prince
Rupert. The ceremony was performed by Rev. Andrew Roddan.

After the ceremony luncheon was
served at Hotel Georgia, and after
a brief honeymoon Dr. and Mrs.
Mandy will reside at 1961 Graham
avenue, Prince Rupert.
Dr. Mandy, who is resident mining engineer for the north-western
district, is well known to many
residents of Alice Arm and Anyox,
and it is safe to say that on his next
visit to this district he will be the
recipient of hearty congratulations
from his many friends.

Pretty Wedding   Was

On Saturday
A smart and pretty wedding took
place at the United Church on Saturday evening last, when Miss Mary
Graham, youngest daughter of Mr.
and Mrs James Graham, of Victoria
B. C, was united in marriage to
William Frederick Williams, of
The Rev. Evan Baker performed
the ceremony and the church was
prettily decorated for the occasion.
The bride, who was given in mat-
riage by Mr. Stanley Thomas, looked charming in a white satin dress
with coatee to match, elbow length
gloves, white shoes, and lace veil
with orange blossoms worn in coronet style. She carried a bouquet
of white roses and carnations. Miss
Peggy Arscott, the bridesmaid,
chose a lemon colored dress of flat
crinkled crepe and picture hat to
match, with white gloves and black
satin shoes. Her bouquet was of
colored carnations. Mrs. J. C.
Dandy sister of the bride, was matron of honor. Her dress was of
green flowered silk voile with picture
hat to match and a bouquet of pink
carnations. Mr. Morgan Flye acted as best man.
Mr. Frank Dresser played the
wedding marches and the choir sang
the wedding hymn: "O Perfect
Love." Mrs. Griffiths sang: "O
Promise Me." After the ceremony
a reception was held at the home of
Mrs. Dandy, about thirty guests

was laid with a hand-embroidered
linen cloth centred by a three-tier
wedding cake beautifully decorated
with a miniature bride and groom.

the evening spent in dancing and
social enjoyment.
The young couple will reside at
the Mine. Mr. Williams is a well

Conduct of Police At
Anyox Defended By
A dozen lengths of weighted
rubber hose and a couple of steel
drills were produced by Attorney-
General Pooley in the Legislatme
on April 4th. as samples of the
weapons whioli striking miners
carried as they marched to the
Beach during the recent strike.
In a lengthy debate on the subject .Attorney General Pooley's reference to 400 armed miners, mostly
foreigners, was scored by H. F.
Kergin, Liberal member for Atlin,
who said the fifteen weapons produced were no evidence that 400
miners were armed. Mr. Pooley's
declaration that foreigners must
obey Canadian laws drew fire from
other members, who said corporations had invited Southern Europeans and other foreigners to come
into the country, given them jobs
in preference to English speaking
workmen, because they thought
they were more docile and would
work for lower wages. These firms
must shoulder the responsibility
themselves, the members claimed.
The debate arose when the vote
of $604,969 for the provincial police
was under consideration. Attorney-General Pooley landed the efficiency of the force and defended their
actions during the strike, which
had been criticized on a previous
occasion by the member for  Atlin.
A small force of eighteen men
had dealt with 400 armed miners.
He produced the weapons aiid asked if they would be carried by
peaceful strikers as Mr. Kergin had
called them.
The miners were also equipped
with miners' helmets better than
the steel helmets used during the
war, he said, and planned to march
to the town and take control.
They threatened to throw a police
officer over the bridge, Mr. Pooley
produoed photographs ofthe bridge
and weapons.
Eighty-four per oent. of the men
had foreign names, the attorney-
general proceeded, and some of
those with British and Scotch
names could not speak a word of
English. They changed their
names to shield themselves from
the police.
T. D. Pattullo, Liberal leader,
took issue on this point, remarking
that because a few men with foreign names had taken more license
than they should, it was not a right
attitude for the police to look with
suspicion on all foreigners.
Granby Co. Takes Over
Property Near Bridge
River District
The Ample group on Cayoosli
Creek, eight miles from Lillooet,
has been optioned by Granby Consolidated Mining and Smelting Co.
from Lillooet and Cariboo Gold-
lields Ltd,, of Victoria. The Ample group adjoins the old Golden
Cache. The Bonanza group, also
operated years ago, is another
neighbouring property.
Granby engineers recently sampled the Morning Star ore body in
the Fairview camp, taking approximately 1000 lbs. for assay. The
old shaft workings at this property!
have been under-watered by R L.
Clothier. The latest report of P.
B. Freeland, resident government
mining engineer for the district
stated that a thorough investigation
was warranted on account of the
widths aiid persistency of the vein
system. He said that about 30
years ago some very high grade
gold ore was mined near the surface
of the Morning Star. In the shaft
which was down about 320 feet
the ore is lower grade but contains
miualilu widths of "mill-feed.''
The sum of $16,000 has been
voted by the Public Works Department for Atlin Constituency for
the coming year, for the maintenance of roads, bridges, etc. Prince
Rupert district received $11,000;
Skeena $22,000, and Omineca $26,
Had the miners gone the right
way about things and applied to
the minister of labor they might
have secured a peaceful settlement
of their dispute, Mr. Pooley said.
But secret organization was carried
on, and when a man named Bradley
said to he one of the worst agitators in the country, arrived, it only
needed a spark to create trouble.
The presence of the fishing patrol
,boat was explained. Mr. Pooley
said it happened to be in the district
and he ordered it to stay there in
case the police needed it.
Hon. W. A. McKenzie, minister
of labor, said he sent his deputy
minister to the scene. The main
problem was that the prioe of copper was so low the company did
not care whether it operated or not.
The department of labor was not
consulted by the men. The red
element got in aud organized the
The deputy minister of labor had
made a sympathetic report, said
Pooley, who admitted that the men
had grievances that could have
been adjusted by the department
of labor, had an opportunity been
given. Mr. MoKenzie also added
that it was just possible conditions
at Anyox could have been improved
Had there been closer co-operation
between the men and oompany the
strike might have been averted.
A Scottish landowner was complaining of the weather to a tenant.
"Aye,'' said the tenant, "ye're

living and working conditions of

after Hon. W. A. McKenzie, minister of mines, had announced that
a mines department official would

do when complaints were made of
safety conditions in the mines.
T. D. Pattullo urged that, in view

Perhaps it seems strange to link "a silicate of

puts it, "when transparent flashes blue and green,"
with the familiar yellow fruit that, so surprisingly,
when you find it growing, is upside down and green.
It is strange. But then it is just as strange to leave
the snow and ice of Canada and less than 60 hours

of Bermuda.

From a Painting by Local Artist
The above illustration is a re-production from a life-sized oil colov
portrait of "Robert Bruce, mount of Chief Constable D. 0.
Draper of Toronto. It was painted by Valentine Gosnold A. B.
W. S, who is better known in this district as Mrs. V. D. D.
Blomfield. The painting was recently exhibited at T. W. Falconer's store, Alice Arm, and was very much admired. Valentine
Gosnold, who is an artist of exceptional merit, was a pupil of the
late Sydney Herbert, formerly of Venice. Until recently she was
an exhibition scenic artist forthe Canadian National Railways.
She holds an Associate Degree of the British Water Colour Society. During her career she has painted many well known horses,
including: "Leo Magnus II," a supreme champion Percheron
stallion, the property of Dawes' Brewery, Montreal. "Salamon,"
King's premium thoroughbred stallion, owned by Dr. Barrow of
London. (Supreme Champion "Findon Grey Shales," owned by
H. R. H. the Prince of Wales. Champion "Ardolton Kingmaker," supreme hackney champion of Great Britain in 1917, and
"Lucy" and "Nora," the last two horses used on the London Fire
Brigade. In addition to portrait and landscape painting, Miss
Gosnold has had considerable experience as an artist in connection with illustrations for national advertisers, and her outstanding talent has been highly commended. In connection with scenic
work and drop scenes for exhibition purposes she has also had
considerable and varied experience.
