Fish Eggs Are Placed
In Alice Arm Lakes
Several lakes in the vicinity of
Alice Arm, which were without fish
of any kind were stocked with trout
eggs this week.
Mr. C. Hearn, of the Dominion Marine and Fisheries Department arrived on Monday from
Prince Rupert with 150,000 eggs.
These eggs were placed in Lily lake
on the hill west of the town, also in
the lake that lies on the plateau
east of the town, and in Clearwater
lake in the upper Kitsault Country.
The eggs are of the Kamloops
trout species. This species is generally used in stocking lakes that
are devoid of fish. They were-
placed in lakes at Banff, where it
was said no fish could exist, but
they thrived. They were also successfully placed . in lakes on the
Forbidden Plateai} on Vancouver
Island at a high elevation, some
lakes having an elevation of 5,000
The placing of the eggs in Alice
Arm lakes was the result of representations made by Jhe Alice Arm
Chamber of MimtfS".* -Mr. Hearn
was assisted in his work here by A.
D. York, secretary ot the Chamber
of Mines; M. Petersen, president,
and O. Flint.
Miss Lottie Pilling, formerly a
very popular member of the Pioneer
Mess staff, who left Anyox about
two years ago and was subsequently married to Mr. Leon J. Hunter,
also of Anyox, is now a mother.
A son was born to Mr. and Mrs.
Hunter on June 19th. at Ventura,
California. The many friends of
this couple extend congratulations

July 4th. of the death in Butte,
Montana, of Mrs. Fred B. McNicholas, who passed away on Sunday,
July 3rd. Mrs. McNicholas, had
been ill for several months, having
left Anyox last fall for speoial
medical treatment in Portland.
In February she was taken to her
home iu Butte, Montana, where she
remained until the time of her
death. The funeral took place on
Tuesday the 5th. and a large number of floral tributes were sent by
her many friends in Anyox. Mrs.
McNicholas was held in high
esteem by all who knew her.
She had a kindly smile and genuinely sincere manner which endeared her to everyone, and was
always very aotive in welfare
and community work generally.
Mrs. McNicholas will be greatly
missed by many friends who knew
her intimately. Heartfelt sympathy is felt by everyone for Mr.
McNioholasin his sad bereavement.
Dominion Day   Celebration
Winds Up With Big
Dance In Gym.
Over two hundred people attend-
ed the Dominion Day Danoe on
July 1st. in the Gymnasium.
This annual event, which was arranged by the Community League,
was as successful as in former
years. A feature of the oooasion
was the introduction of the orchestra from the ''Prince Rupert", while
that ship was in port. A number
of novelty turns and the most
modern types of dance music were
rendered, and were much appreciated by the dancers. Harry
Ward's Orchestra, which played
for. the remainder of the evening,
was no less popular, being perhaps
still better suited to local tastes
and requirements, and a very enjoyable evening of dancing was
indulged iu by all;
A very appetizing supper was
served. The special prize was won
by Mrs. J. Wynne, and the prizes
won at the A. C. L. sports in the
afternoon were presented to the
winners by Mr. T. W. Cavers, president of the Community LetapSe.'
Rose Day Collections Exceed
The proceeds of Rose Day, which
was held on July 1st. as in other
years, amounted to $61.12. Everything considered, this was an excellent result, and Mrs. Fricker, as
convener of the committee of I.O.
D. E. ladies who undertook the
work, desires to thank the people
of Anyox and district for their very
generous response. The whole of
the funds collected are devoted to
Hospitals for Crippled Children,
Child Welfare Work and Maternity
Work. Much credit is due to all
those ladies of the I. O. D. E. who
did the work of collecting, despite
adverse weather conditions.
Miss Isabel Orr, formerly of the
General Office staff at Anyox, has
been honored recently at various
bridge parties and showers in Vancouver. She is to be married in
Vancouver early this month.
Granby Co. Makes Another
Wage Reduction
Due to the continued low price of
copper, another wage cut was made
by the Granby Co. on July 1st.
The cut affects all employees of the
company at Anyox, which number
approximately 1000 men. Notices
were posted around the plant, which
read as follows:
"Effective July 1 there will be a
reduction in wages of 40c. per shift
on wage rates that were under
$3.85 prior to Sept. 1, 1931, and
50c. on wage rates that were $3.85
and over prior to that date.
"Salaries will be reduced an
amount equivalent to 10% of the
base rates in effect prior to Sept. 1,
Anyox Win Two Games
And Lose One With
Playing three games at Anyox,
one on June 30th. and two on July
1st., Ketchikan lost to the home
boys, winning only the game played
on the afternoon of July 1st.
The Ketchikan visitors played
nice ball, but appeared to be affected somewhat by the ground and
the general conditions. On the
other hand the Anyox team were
right on their toes, and eager to
put it over their friends from the
Alaskan town.
All three games were interesting,
but poor weather conditions at the
first game prevented a large attendance. At this game Lockhart
pitched for Ketchikan and Lazorek
for Anyox, three batters being
struck out by the former and five
by the latter. Anyox won this
game on the second innings, in
which eight runs were scored.
From a spectacular point of view
the second game, played on the
afternoon of July 1st. was the best.
This was anybody's game right to
the seventh inning. The score was
Ketchikan 16, Anyox 14.
This game yielded the thrill of
the series, when Archie McDougall
secured a home run with a beautiful smack to left field. Northrup
for Ketchikan and Lazorek for
Anyox each got a three-bagger.
Nelson, pitching for Ketchikan,
struck out 11 batters and Musser
10. Oatman, for Anyox, stole
three bases and secured four runs.
There was a big attendance at this
In the third and last game there
was some excellent play, although
after the second innings no runs
were scored. In the second inning
Anyox scored seven runs. Batters
struck out by Nelson for Ketchikan
were six, and by Lazorek seven.
Anyox scored 8 runs and Ketchikan
AU Government Work Will
Be On Relief Basis
Commencing on July 1st. all
work in the Alice Arm district undertaken by the Department of
Public Works will be on a relief
It will be necessary for all those
receiving direct relief of 40c. a
day to work a certain number of
days each month. No more full
wages will be paid to anyone
except in a case of emergency that
requires immediate attention. This
policy is being undertaken by the
government as a part of the general economic plan to cut expenditures. ALICE   ARM   AND  ANYO^ HERALD,  Friday, July 8, 1932
T. J. Shenton Explains
His Political Views
In Speech
Owing to lack of time it was not
possible to give a full report of the
speech delivered by Mr. T, J.
Shenton, independent labor candidate, at Alice Arm on June 29th.
Following is an additional report:
The meeting was held in T. W
Falconer's hall, and quite a number
of voters were present. The chairman of the meeting was A. D.
Yorke, who, in a few introductory
remarks, referred to Mr. Shenton
as a man capable of looking after
, the interests of Atlin constituency.
His late duties as Inspecto: o^
Mines, enabling him to be thoroughly acquainted with our needs.
Mr. Shenton, in opening his address, said it was not his intention
to make a political speech when he
came to Alice Arm, but as so many
requests had been received, he
would state his position and views
as an independent labor candidate
His principal reason for becoming
a labor candidate in the forthcoming
election was due to the many requests received throughout the
constituency, and were so numerous
that he could not resist.
As mining inspector, he said, he
knew the north country from A to
Z. When in that position he carried out his duties honestly, and
would do the same at Victoria if
In speaking of general conditions
Mr, Shenton said: Stagnation, unemployment, starvation are rife.
Who is to blame or what? Men
are willing to work, but the doors
of industry are closed against them.
This state of affairs demoralizes the
best of men.
Many reasons were given that
helped to aggravate the present depressed conditions. The speaker
claimed that the governments of
Canada should have a greater con
trol over the natural resources of
the country, instead of handing them
over to big corporations to exploit
for personal profit. As an instance
in this respect he cited the Premier
mine at Stewart. Mr. Shenton
stated that the Premier Gold Mining Co. had made a profit of between fourteen and fifteen million
dollars in a few years. Most of
this money had been taken out of
the country. The government had
probably only secured about one
million dollars in taxes. If our resources had been farmed properly,
the Premier Company would have
got five million and the government
ten million dollars. The natural
resources, he said, belonged to the
people and they should receive
more benefit from them, instead of
a few wealthy people. When rich
corporations are paying big dividends from utilizing our natural
resources, we have to suffer accordingly.    No company,  the speaker
Celts Win Decisively In
League Game From
Though putting up a strong fight
against tlieir formidable opponents
on Tuesday June 28th, the Rangers
were defeated by the score of 4 to 1.
It was a well contested game all
the way, and in spite of a strong
counter attraction at the picture
there was a fair number of fans.
The Rangers were strengthened by
the inclusion of Dixon at centre-
forward, and Jimmy showed much
of his old speed and oleverness
Adequate support, however, was
lacking just- when most needed.
Ivor Davies and Freddy Calderoni
played well, as also did Maxwell
Patrick, who surprised the fans
with his fast, aggressive style.
The Celts combined excellently.
Jack Bell between the sticks did
good work, and Mikeli also saved
some that appeared to be tagged.
Through painstaking work the
ground has been transformed into
a real football field, and is a
pleasure to play on. Jack Evans
controlled the game.

said, should be allowed to take
fourteen or fifteen million dollars
out ot the country. We should
look after our own people first.
In remedying the present unsatisfactory condition, Mr. Shenton
said that he did not believe in revolutionary methods, and hoped that
the change, when it came, would
be made constitutionally. But, he
said, men are losing their moral
tone, and danger may be ahead.
When you drive a rat in a cornet
he will turn. Unless the workers
obtain redress they will come out of
their lair like a lion. He quoted a
prominent labor leader in the
United States who told the government that the floodgates of revolution were ready to fly open,, and
when they do, don't blame us as
The government of Canada, he
said, is well aware of the possible
danger ahead, and has recently increased the R. C. M. P. by 800
In addition to the unwise farming
of our natural resources, the speaker blamed the use of modern machinery, the private banking
system, and high tariff walls forthe
lepression troubles today. Modern
machinery has created a surplus of
everything. Our shelves are filled
with goods. Our granaries are
overflowing. Our bank vaults
filled with wealth, and yet many
are destitute. Every country is
shutting out the others' products as
uch as possible through tariff
walls, until no markets are left.
We have reached the apex, he said,
and are due for a change.

Breaking New Trails in the Rockies
1? very year the Order of the Trail Riders of the
Canadian Rockies gathers together its devotees
who set out into the unknown, or the almost unknown, on mountain ponies from the starting point
at the Banff Springs Hotel or Chateau Lake Louise.
For those new to the game there is a trail ride of
a few days, covering, however, little travelled paths,
while for the expert there is a ride of three weeks
penetrating to the heart of the Rockies, and both
end in a Grand Pow-wow or campfire meeting where
songs are sung and the feeling of general jollity
is perpetuated. These Trail rides are held in August
when the weather is at its best and lovers of the outdoors gain an experience which, even if they never
repeat it, will furnish them with memories and
stories for a life-time. Every year new trails are
broken, the one last year being over Gibbon Pass,
named after the founder of the Order. The rides
attract travellers from every part of the continent
and from Europe, and some 1,500 of them are nor/
enrolled in the Order.
Lay-out shows riders passing through Gibbon
Pass, taking a rest at Shadow Lake with Mount Ball
in the background, and fording an arm of the Lake

rs and Wildcats Win
One Game Each
Alice Arm
During Sunday's game, in the
last half of the ninth inning, the
Tigers went to bat two runs down,
and managed to pull the game out
of the fire to the tune of 15 to 14.
Steven for the Wildcats ran into
difficulties in the 3rd. and 5th. innings and then withdrew in favor
of Falconer, who was unable to
hold the Tiger onslaught in the
final frame. Hatton for the winners pitched steady ball, except in
the 5th. when the Tiger fielding
went wrong and the Wildcats
punched in eight runs.
This game on Sunday afternoon
was the best exhibition so far, and
to all appearances the games should
De close from now on.

On Wednesday night the Wildcats obtained revenge for past
defeats when they played bang-tip
ball to trounce the Tigers 13-6.
Steven was given first-class support in the field, and he managed to
keep his hits well scattered.
Hatton, after the first two
innings settled down to throwing
real ball, and from then on Alice
Arm saw the tightest ball game of
the season.
Bower was pounding them out
for the Cats, and T. Falconer, the
Tiger push, did the unexpected by
making a home run on a scratch
single and three stolen bases. He
never stopped long enough at one
base to be tagged. The umpire
for both games was J. Fiva.
