Monthly   Meeting   Of
Anyox Parent-Teacher
At the regular January meeting
of the Anyox P. T. A. held iu the
new school last Monday evening
reports were received and a number
of items of the business were discussed. /
A stereopticon of latest design*
recently purchased by the Association for use in the schools was
reported on hand. Teaohers and
pupils alike will find this machine
a very great aid in supplementing
material and interest in the presentation of lessons. Appreciation of
this addition to the School equipment cannot at any time be too
highly indicated by those who
realize the value of its use.
Some of the members expressed
their hope that the pictures secured
for the schools some time ago would
be hung in the various rooms before
the next meeting.
It was intimated that Dr. Harper would be the speaker before the
Association ou February 18th.
,A The Doctor's long and varied
experience both as teacher and
musician is sufficient assurance to
all of the valuable and interesting
address whioh we may anticipate.
A Valentine Masquerade dance
planned by the P. T. A. for Monday
evening February 11th. to be held
in the Recreation Hall promises to
be the sooial event of the winter,
Mrs. W. F. Eye oonvenor in charge
of all dance committees reported
satisfactory progress with arrangements so far and urged that each
and every member determine to cooperate and make this affair a
worthy and successful undertaking
It was resolved by those present
that since this was to be a nine to
two. dance no childrenunder sixteen
would he admitted. Plans were
suggested, however, to hold a children's masquerade later in the season.
Principal Manzer reported that
the services of a University of B. C.
extension lecturer would be available near Easter and it was suggested that the Association might act
in conjunction with the A. C, L, in
seouring a lecture date for Anyox.
When the evening's business was
ooncluded Miss M. Swanson and
Rev. J. Herdman rendered pleasing
piano and vocal solos. The former
played Schuberts Seuerade and the
latter sang "A Friar of Orders
Grey" Refreshments were served
and the National Anthem brought
a pleasant evening to a close.

Hockey Season Opens
At Alice Arm
The Alice Arm hockey season
opened ou Thursday, when the
first game of the Local League was
played, which was followed by a
game yesterday.
These two games have proved
that the veterans of last year have
not lost any of their old-time skill
or speed, and it also brought out
the encouraging fact that some of
the new arrivals are uo mean stick-
handlers, especially Charlie Drennan, who fills his position admirably. Among last year's players.
Herb. Butler is shOwin greatly improved form.
The opening game on Thursday
was played between the Bears and
Wildoats, and from the time the
whistle blew at the commencement, until the finish, it was a hard
ding-dong battle, with both teams
fighting for all they were worth.
In the last period the Bears put
up a game fight, to equalize, but
could not find the net. and the
game closed with the score: Wildcats 5.  Bears 3.
The teams were: Wildcats,
Wickwire, Drennan, Fiva, Flint,
Bears: Bruggy, Anderson, Win-
nerstrom, Young, Yorke.
Yesterday afternoon the Beat-
were again playing, and smarting
under their defeat from the Wildcats the previous day, they mauled
the Cougars for 6 goals to 5.
The Bears were in good condition from the previous game. In
the first period they scored two
goals, but the Cougars went one
better, and placed the puck three
times in the net.
At the end of the second period
the score stood at 5- 5,
In the third period, both teams
were out to place the elusive puck
between the sticks, and secure the
winning goal. A fine exhibition
of stick handling and checking was
put up by both teams, but the
Bears eventually crashed the disk
into the net and won the game.
Score: Bears 6, Cougars 5.
The teams were: Bears, Bruggy,
Anderson, Yorke, Winnerstrom,
Fiva. H. Fowler played in the
first period.
Cougars: Black, Wilson, Butler,
T. W. Falconer, Smith.

Ministers are Rebuked
By far the most amusing episode of
the week, was the explosion of the
Ministerial Association meeting
when Hon. A.M. Manson accused
them of being "pikers" in not standing behind him in his efforts to
enforce provincial liquor legislation
It reminded one of the Billingsgate
fish lady who felt hurt, when in a
verl A alt-xation someone referred
to her as an individual."
The Ministerial Association of
Vancouver comprises in its ranks
several of the champion free-for-all
tongue lashers of the Pacific North
west. Warmed up, with an applauding audience, they even describe our beautiful mountain-rimmed
land of sunset glory as "a sink of
iniquity" or advise Prohibitionists
"to let the workingman soak in his
booze till he rots." A lawyer
may not even lend his name to the
incorporation papers of a company
dealing in merchandise approved
by law, without being skull-dragged
and vilified by some of them. Arid
then they get angry and demand
apologies when the chief law officer
or*the Crown—himself a Presbyterian elder—reproves them for their
remissness and accuses them of
being "Pikers." They certainly
do not relish their own medicine.
Perhaps it was tough on Principal Vance who represents the broad
minded element among the clergy
and who is certainly not lacking
in courage and on Rev. C. A.
Williams who has been little in the
public eye since he committed the
folly of taking the war-time job of
recruiting officer to Catholic Quebec
But there are some members of the
Ministerial Association whose jeremiads have thoroughly sickened
the public
However the Attorney-general
made it clear that he did not use
the term in the race-track sense in
which the parsons took it, but in
the ordinary "man in the street"
sense.   But the sensitiveness of the
G. D. B. Turner, vice-president
and consulting engineer for the
Indian mining company, returned
Monday night from an extended
business trip east, and after clearing up certain details in the company's Stewart offioe, will leave
for the mine to inspect the work
done during his absence, which has
been of the most satisfactory
nature, adding considerably to the
ore    reserves  of    the    property.
Speaking to the News, Mr.
Turner said that he will be here
only a short time, when he will
leave for the south for the purpose
of buying the necessary machinery
and equipment for a 200 ton mill
winch thp company intends to
build first thing in the spring. It
is the intention to take the machinery and materials in over the snow
as soon as possible, as the present
snow roads will enable a consider
able saving to be made in transportation costs.' While detailed
particulars are not at this date
available, it is known that the mill
will be of 200 ton daily capacity,
employing the oil flotation process,
that has proved so successful in
handling the Premier ore.

Federal Government Will Be
Asked to Give Bounty on
B. C. Iron
. Victoria,—That the Federal
Government be asked to grant a
bounty ou pig iron and associated
products is the request in a motion
brought down at the recent session
of the Legislature by Hon. Wm.
Sloan, Minister of Mines.
Mr. Sloan's motion sets forth
that the industrial development
of British Columbia requires that an
iron arid steel indnstry beestablished
that suoh industry would assist in
the. development of the dormatiron
and coal resources, thereby giving
more employment and building up
a province that in population, industrial activity and prosperity,
will reflect the richness and variety
of its resources; that the Federal
Government has assisted the iron
and steel industry of Eastern Canada by granting a bounty on pig-
iron with the result that there was
established on a sound basis one of
the first industries of its kind in
America. Thereon, the motion, sets
forth, the Legislature should endorse the principle of the granting
of a bounty by the Federal Government and urge upon the Dominion
the advisability and necessity of
favorable action to that end.
Eight-Hour Law Will be

law, just passed by the Legislature

or any industry in which only members of the same family are employed.
The Act will be administered
by a Board, of which the Deputy
Minister of Labor will be chairman.
Power is given to the Board to
make such regulations as are considered necessary or advisable.
Industries will be protected from
reductions in operating hours that
might seriously cripple production.
For instance, in the lumbering
industry, operating companies, will
be permitted to operate for more

Friday evening January 11th.
saw the opening games of the
Anyox Basketball Leagues.
The lirst game was that between
the coke plant and the Rovers. The
former were returned the winners
by the score of 34 to 16. This
game did not prove very exciting
the play being very ragged at times.
The Rovers will have to buck up
considerably if they expect to
reverse the decision in their next
The second game, that between
the Pats and the High School was
productive bf a little more excitement than the former. The High
School girls did exceptionally well
to hold the strong Pats team down
to the small score of 10 to 2.
The Senior fixture was a walkaway for the Elks by tho score of
32 to 46. The Mine fielded a much
weaker team than last year but
improves as the season progresses.
The teams lined up as follows;
Coke Plant: J. Thomson, G Thomson, Hogben, Ballantyne, and

Three games were played on
Monday evening all of which were
productive of better basketball
than ou Friday.
The First game was between the
High School and the Bluebirds of
Ladies League and resulted in a
win for the Bluebirds by 9 to 5.
While this game was not as good
as the Ladies game of Friday it
caused considerable excitement at
times. The Majority of the points
were made from free shots.
The second game was an inter
mediate fixture between the Office
and the Tuxis boys, the former win
ning by the score of 23 to 18. The
game was very close throughout
and was not won until the last
few minutes of play.
The Smelter team put it over a
surprise in the Senior game handing the Elks a trimming to the
tune of 38 to 16. Fast and snappy
combination that had the Elks bewildered most of the time was the
cause of their downfall.
