Banquet is Best Ever
Over 200 are Guests of Community League at
Sports' Banquet on Monday night
"Better than ever," was the
slogan of the Anyox Community
League, when arranging for the
holding of their Annual Sports'
Banquet, which took place on
Monday night. At the conclusion
of the jollification, on Monday, at
which it wus the pleasure of ■ the
editor of the Herald to be present,
wo speedily arrived at tho conclusion- that the officers of the
League fully lived up to their
slogan, and are confident that all
those present were of the same
As in former years, the banquet
was held in the spacious Recreation Hall. One table extended
across the hall at the stage end,
and joining it two tables ran the
entire length of the hall. Seated
in the centre of the head table sat
the Chairman for the evening, Mr.
B. M. Buok, and supporting him
on either side were the officers of
the League. In the centre of the
hall, the Anyox Brass Band, under the conductorship of Bandmaster J. Varnes were stationed,
and at 8.30 p.m., the hour appointed the commencement of festivities,
the hall presented a brilliant and
!>v! imated scene, with over 200
seated at the tables, which were
loaded with piles of eatables, while
iu front and on either side of the
Chairman were the championship
silver cups, which later were presented to the winning teams.
A crash of music by the band,
started the proceedings, and at the
conclusion of the overture, the
Chairman rose, and in a few words
of welcome, said he felt that he
was among friends, and was sure
they would all enjoy themselves
before the evening closed. He
said that speeches would not form
a part of the programme, for when
the boys get together on these
occasions, it was with the intention of enjoying themselves. He
referred to the hard  work of the
officers of the League, whioh was
necessary for the carrying out of
such an elaborate programme, and
hoped all would appreciate their
efforts. He then declared that all
was iu readiness for an onslaught
upon the eatables.
At the conclusion .of the banquet, no time was lost in carrying
out the lengthy evening's programme, which was as follows:
The silver cup, emblematic of
the football championship for the
past season, and won by the Beach
Football team, was presented by
the Chairman to E. Craggs, who in
accepting the trophy, said that for
good sports, the Beach team were
hard to beat, and they intended to
win the cup again next year.
Selection by the band, of
choruses, including: "Swauee
River," "Black Joe," aud "Dixie"
and iu which all joined.
Song by W. F. Eve. "Out of
the Light." Encore: "One Fleeting Hour."
Chorus: "Alouette." Sung by
all.   Chorus leader, J. Mitchell.
Tiio Chairman then presented
sweaters, donated by the Granby
Co., to the Elks' Baseball team.
Those receiving sweaters were:
J. Cody, F. F. Brown, H. I. Thorley, Bud Sheen, O. G. Macintyre,
J. Moore, R. Ingram, C. Ferguson,

The Sunset'property on Ronndy
creek is one that is well worthy of

: who is in charge of operations for
the Keystone Mining Co.
Mr. Bowyer returned on Thursday from a thorough examination
of the property, and said he had
traced the main ore ledge for a
idistanoe of over 2000, feet on the
surface. It is the intention of the
loompany to commence active development work early next

The operation of dismantling
the Dam Railroad as far as the big
hoist was completed on Wednesday. A large number of railroad
ties have been stored up for future
use on the railroad.
Conorete proof that the- country
immediately adjaoent to the town
of Alice Arm poisesses veins of
extraordinary high grade silver
ore, has been again conclusively
proven by J. Fiva and P. Johnson,
who are working on the rich ore
vein reoently discovered by them
on the Wolf. This vein is yielding
rich ore, and its development may
have far reaching results in regard
to the development of the country
from the town of Alice Arm to the
La Rose mine.
A visit to the property on
Thursday showed that the vein
has been exposed on' the surface
for a distance of 75 feet. The vein
runs parallel with the hill, and all
loose rock above it has been blasted down, aud the ore is now being
taken out. It is the intention to
stope on the ore from the surface
until the snow puts an end to
operations. A tunnel, which it
is estimated will be about 75 feet,
will then be driven, and the ore
mined from underground.
Two hundred Sacks of high
grade silver, have already been
taken from the surface, and this
will be shipped as soon as assay
returns of samples of ore have been
obtained. The ore is some of the
highest grade yet found iu the
Alice Arm district, and is comprised chiefly of silver sulfides, ruby
and native silver. In addition to
the silver it also carries yellow
copper, which is expected to give
gold values.
The width of the vein varies
from 6 inches to 2 feet. It runs
north and south, with 10 degrees
west of south. At present it is
rather flat, dipping into the hill at
an angle of about 15 degrees, but
is gradually turning over, and it is
expected that it will ultimately
have a dip of about 25 to 30 degrees.
In addition to the high grade
ore, there will be a considerable
tonnage of second grade ore, and
owing to the close proximity of
the mine to the Dolly Varden railway, it is expected that this ore
can be profitably shipped to the
The successful developing and
mining of this property, again
points to the fact that Alice Arm
certainly has the ore, and the only
thing necessary for its extraction
is the man with nerve enough
to go after it. The men of Alice
Arm have not got the capital to
develop a big property, but they
are ready to spend their time and
what money they have iu developing these small high grade veins,
and prove to the big capitalists
that the district is worth investigating, and at the same time enrich themselves.
Union Church Thanksgiving Concert Draws
Huge Crowd
Sunday Services Enjoyed
Ole Evindson, who is one of the
original locators of the Dolly Varden, arrived in town on Thursday
from Vancouver.
Sunday was Harvest Festival
Day in the United Church. The
Church was appropriately decorated with a large amount of fruit,
vegetables and flowers which were
donated by the Sunday School of
the United Church, Maple Ridge,
(Port Haney.) This was the largest display'of its kind ever seen in

On Monday evening a concert
under the auspices of the Sunday
School gave wholesome entertainment to an audience which taxed
the capacity of the building. The
musical programme together with
the readings and dialogues was
interesting and praiseworthy,
A short dialogue—"A baby
show," by a number of junior girls
and boys was much appreciated.
A sketch "Before and After"
by Marjorie Cloke and Eddie Clay
was a silent, and it is hoped, an
effective reminder to all husbands.
The pageant emphasized the
Thanksgiving note. The Spirit
of Humanity held court and listened to many claimants who aspired
to contribute most to the happiness and welfare of humanity.
The spirit of Christianity appeared
near the close and drew attention
to the fact that all benefits are derived from the Eternal Power, the
Maker and Preserver of the Universe, who placed the metals iu the
earth, gave man the forest and
fish, and supplies the moisture and
sunshine for the field crops. It is

Mary Ellen Smith
Addresses Meetings
The Liberal Party are sparing
no effort to place before the
electors of this distriot the future
policy of the Mackenzie King
government, and defending the
actions of that government while
in office.
During the week, two meetings
were held in Anyox, one at the
Mine Hall on Thursday evening,
and one at tlie Beach Recreation
Hall last night. Both Meetings
were addressed by Mrs. Mary
Ellen Smith, M. L. A., and H. F.
Kergin, M. L. A. Large and enthusiastic meetings were held, a
large number being attracted by
the presence of Mrs. Smith, whose
ability as a public speaker is well
known. She gave illuminating
and instructive addresses and
showed that she was conversant
with federal government affairs as
well as provincial.
They will leave today for Alice
Arm, where a meeting will be held
this evening, and on Monday will
visit "Stewart.
The enjoyable evening was
brought to a close with refreshments provided by the ladies.
The proceeds which amounted to
nearly $90 are for the Sunday
School funds, especially the Christmas Tree.

in any way contributed to the success of the evening, special mention being made of Mrs. Hume,
for her kindness in singing; also to

The Chairman then announced
the program ine ended, and asked
for a vote of thanks to Mr. F. Kelley, secretary, and the officers of
Anyox Community League, for the
splendid entertainment given this
evening; also a vote of thanks to
the Anyox Band, and this was
passed with great enthusiasm.
"God Save the King" was then
sang heartily by all.
One of the outstanding features
of the evening was the smoothness
with which all arrangements were
carried out. Every invitation card
bore a number, and the holders
were conducted to their seats by
ushers without inconvenience oi
loss of time. Another factor towards the evening's success was
the capable manner in which tbe
proceedings were handled by the
Chairman, B. M. Buck, and from
tbe lirst selection by the band until "God Save the King." was sang
at midnight, there was action all
the time.
The preparations necessary for
the entertainment of such a large
number, entails a large amount of
bard work on the part of someone,
and it would not be fair to close
this brief report without mentioning those who labored so hard for
the purpose of providing enjoyment for others. Those who took
an active part in the preliminary
work were H. E. Hogben, chairman of recreation A. C. L., F.
Dresser and A. Nickerson, programme committee; the Community League Council and Baseball
and Football executives, comprised
the reception and refreshment
committee. The brunt of the
work, however, was shouldered by
the secretary of the League, Mr.
F. M. Kelley, and it is in a large
measure due to his untiring efforts
that the Annual Sports' Banquet
has been brought to such a high
degree of efficiency, and holds
place as one of the outstanding
events in the social life of Anyox.

HOW do YOU feel about the development of your own

are bound to admit that 1921 marked a turning point in
western progress. Today the world has its eyes on British

whether on the Atlantic or Pacific.
For the first time
since 1913. the Liberal
Government announces
a surplus in the country's budget—a surplus
of $4,816,000. This in
spite of a reduced taxation, in spite of the fact
that the country under
Meighen's leadership
spent $464,000,000 in
1921, while in 1925
$350,000,000 was spent
by Mackenzie King.
For every four dollars

products of the prairies over the

The most urgent requirement in
Canada's Agricultural Products
(CANADA produees every year large quantities of wheat, oats, barley,
„/ butter, cheese, bacon, beef, eggs, apples, potatoes, grass seed and
clover seed that she cannot consume. Her natural outlet for these products is, of course, Great Britain—the one great consuming country of
the world with an open market.
Unfortunately, nearly every other country with any surplus of food
products seems to want to send its surplus to this same market.
The keenness of the competition on this, our only market, and the
energy and resourcefulness of our competitors began to impress themselves upon the Department of Agriculture some time ago, but it is only
within very recent years that the real and only way to grapple with this
problem has been discovered, or at least put into effect. This Department
now believes, as do also most of the farmers of this country, that the
"grading" of our agricultural products is the policy and practice that is
seeing us through the struggle and will assure us of our rightful place on
the British market.
"Grading" means the classifying " shillings a long hundredweight below
