[Weekly Meeting of
Anyox Community
League Council
The regular weekly meeting of
(ihe Community League Council
(Was held'in Reoreation Hall, Wednesday evening, Ootober 25th, at
the usual hour. Present: President
[Ferguson, Seoretary Treasurer C. J.
Lowry, Councillors Rowley, Noel,
'Armour, Seidelman and Sherman.
The minutes of the preceding
meeting were read and approved.
The secretary reported that Dean
Quainton had lectured on Friday
evening, October 20th, and again
on Sunday evening, October 22nd.
The gross receipts for the two lectures amounted to $51.80. As the
League had incurred no expense in
connection with the visit of Dean
Quainton, the entire amount had
been turned over to Dean Quainton.
This action of the secretary was endorsed by the Council. In the matter of the applications for a piano
teacher, a meeting had been held
on Monday evening, when all the
applications bujt four had been dis-
•aprded. These four had been written to with:full particulars. The
secretary also referred to prices of
admission charged for the Quainton
lecture. It had been stated by several people that the Community
League had fixed price, adding 15
cents for the League. Letters were
(read showing that the prices had
been stipulated by the lecurer's
management. In this matter as
well as for the arrangements made
with the Count Szeda Concert Company, the secretary's actions were
endorsed by the Council in the form
of a motion moved by Mr. Armour
and seconded by Mr. Rowley.
Mr. Rowley reported on the
great cost of altei'ing the Tennis
Court for skating purposes, as well
as the additional cost of fixing the
courts for the summer tennis
season. The original estimate had
been in the neighbourhood of $360
and it looked a simple matter. A
later estimate, however, showed an
outlay of $915.00, without taking
into consideration the cost of
lighting, wiring, etc., and several
other items. It would cost a
further $1,000.00 next spring to
make the necessary repairs. A
number of those who had promised
to take season tickets refused to
put up the money until the ice was
ready, whioh meant that the
League would have to borrow the
money, and take the risk on an
open winter. Mr. Rowley advised
that the project be dropped, and
that another location be looked for.
The Chairman asked Mr. Rowley
if he would report on this at the
next meeting.
The Council accepted with great
regret the resignation of Mr. Geo.
Warwick, who so ably handled the
Forum Department of the League
for some time past. Mr. Armour
voiced the appreciation of the
Council in a few well chosen words.
The Chairman asked Mr. Rowley
if he would accept the Chairmanship of the Forum.   To fill Mr
Alice Arm Debating
Society Holds First
Debate of Season
The first regular debate to be
staged by the Alioe Arm Debating
Society, was held on Tuesday evening, at the Anglican Churoh.
A short business meeting was
held previous to the debate. The
Chair was ocoupied by E. Moss.
The minutes of the last meeting
were read and adopted. Oil the
Chairman calling for a report by
the committee appointed, to
arrange for new quarters, to draw
up by-laws governing the debates,
and also provide ways and means
of raising enough money to pay
current expenses. Mr. Fowler
said that it had been decided to
leave these matters in obeyance for
about two weeks, as the committee
would then have a better idea of
what was needed. Mr. Petersen
also said that so far, no action had
been taken by the committee.
No more business coming before
the meeting, the debate was proceeded with. The subject for the
evening was: "Resolved that mining is of more benefit to the
province than agriculture." Speakers for the affiirmative were: Al.
Falconer, E. R. Oatman, L. Paulcer. Negative: E. Moss, J. McDonald, R. Hallett.
The Chair during the debate, was
taken by President C. P. Riel, who
explained that 15 minutes would
be allowed'eaoh speaker, and five
minutes rebuttal by the two
Al. Falconer, leader of the affirmative, opened the debate, He
gave an eloquent, convincing
speech, in favor of mining,, and
quoted government statistics to
verify his statement that mining
iwas the superior industry. He
gave figures of coal reserves of the
province and predicted a great
future for the industry.
E. Moss, leader of the negative
side, followed, and traced the agricultural industry from the Garden
of Eden to the Naas Valley and
round the province.
E. R. Oatman was the next
speaker, and he gave a lucid description of the various mines
throughout the provinoe, and the
large amount of wealth that was
extracted from the ground eaoh
year, and the enormous benefit that
the province derived from the
mining industry.'
J. McDonald then took the floor
in defence of agriculture, and he
probably gave the most convincing
speech of the evening. He chose
his words with care and made
every sentence count.
Leo Paulcer then gave the audi-
Oontinued on page 3.
Logging Operations
Will Commence
This Year
Logging operations will shortly
be commenced on the Kitsault
River flats, adjacent to the town
of Alioe Arm, by Trethewey Bros,
of Abbotsford.
Messrs. J. O. Trethewey, and S,
D. Trethewey, acoompanied by
J. E. Taylor, and E. Carlson,
arrived at Alice Arm, on Monday,
and after looking over the situation
it was decided to. start operations
The first work to be done will be
the making of a booming ground,
and this will be done by driving
piles along the water front, just
east of the Indian Reserve, The
building of camps will also be
undertaken, and probably the construction of a logging railroad will
be commenced this yeW. It is also
their intention to start falling the
timber at onoe, and falling will be
carried on throughout the winter.
Two donkey i engines will be
brought iu and the.work.of pulling
logs will also be carried on all
winter, unless an exceptional heavy
snowfall stops operations.
In an interview with the Herald,
Mr. J. O; Trethewey stated thqt
there was enough timber on their
holdings to guarantee work being
carried on two years and possibly
a third. He also stated that all
the timber on the flats was affected
by smelter smoke, and it is their
intention to fall the timber as
quickly as possible, before it detonates still more.
Warwiok's place a councillor will
be selected at the next meeting.
A drive for membership was suggested by  Mr. Lowry,  and  the

Ore Coming Down
From Esperanza
Mr. Al. Falconer has had two
horse cars for the past inonth hau-
ing supplies over the Dolly Varden
Railwey for the government road
camp, and prospectors on the
upper Kitsault River.
He is also busy working three
horses on the Esperanza hill hauling down ore from that mine, to
the railway traok. Twelve tons
per day is now coming down the
hill, and is re-loaded into a side
dump oar, and hauled to the Dolly
Varden ore bunkers at the wharf.
Over .100 tons are now in the
bunkers, and ore will continue to
be brought down. This ore is
destined for the Granby Smelter at
The loading apparatus at the
railway traok, is a revelation to
many who have seerf it. The
sleighs are driven oyer [the top of
the railway track on to a trestle
and automatically turn upside
down, the ore falling into the car
below, and the ore is not touched
by hand from the time it leaves the
mine.   ,
Storage Dam Club
Holds Smoker
On Monday, October 23rd, the
first Smoker was put on under the
auspices of the newly organized
Storage Dam Club. Mr. T. J.
Kirkwood, of the Mine, occupied
the Chair, in the manner of the
experienced Chairman that he is.
Three excellent boxing bouts were
put on, the various boys taking
part exerting themselves to the
limit, the main objeot in view,
being to beat the other fellow,
which was very satisfactory from
the spectators point ot view.
The boys who boxed in the preliminaries, were: Harry Down vs.
Alfred Wesley; Cy. Greenwell vs.
A. Tait; Fitzpatrick Bros., Benny
and Barney.
J. Sherman was referee.
A ten minute wrestling bout by
Al. LaFortune and D. Stubbs, was
also very interesting, and kept the
fans at a high state of excitemont
during the whole ten minutes.
The bout ended in a draw neither
man having the advantage.
The main event of the evening
was a wrestling match between
Pete Doerksen and Gus Anderson,
the latter being formerly heavy
weight champion of Sweden
Both men weighed about 190
pounds, but Dorkeson is much
more sturdy built, being short and
thick set, compared to Anderson,
who is a six footer, and a .worthy
representation of the ancient
They wrestled for, two falls out
of three. Dorkeson winning two
straight, the first in 11 minutes
47 seconds, and the second in 8
minutes 29 seconds. Both bouts
were genuine tests of physical endurance. Anderson hugged the
mat forcing Dorkeson to be the
aggressor, the latter used almost
every hold on the calender, and
Anderson showed that he knew
something about the game also.
Referee: D. Stubbs.

Anyox to Celebrate
Armistice Day
Armistice Day, November 11th,
was the day upon which the most
terrible war in history came to a
close. It was a happy day for
everybody, but more so for the
boys who bore arms.
To show that it is a red letter
day, never to be forgotten, all ex-
service men the world over, look
upon it as their day to celebrate.
The Anyox Service Association
do not intend that Anyox will be
behind any other part of the
Empire in this respect.
Friday November 10th, being a
more suitable day to celebrate this
great anniversary in Anyox, a
committee of patriotic ladies will
sell poppies on the street, and
everyone is requested to wear a
poppy, iu memory of those who
sleep in "Flanders Fields."
President J. Herdman is the
recruiting officer for this committee, and will be pleased to
enroll volunteers for the Poppy
In the evening, a grand masquerade ball will be held in the Recreation Hall, which will be
fittingly decorated for the occasion.
Handsome prizes will be awarded
for costumes, for best comic lady'
and gentleman and most original
lady and gentleman.
Community League
Smoker was Grand
On Friday evening, October 13i
the players of all the teams who
took part in the Anyox Baseball
and Football Leagues, during the
past season, were the guests of the
A. C. L. at a Smoker in the Reo
reation Hall. About one hundred
supporters of the game were
present to do honor to these sportsmen who had given the people of
Anyox such an excellent season
of sport.
On entering the spacious hall,
one was surprised to see tables
extending the full length of the
Hall, groaning under a load of
good eats. What had been announced as a Smoker was really a
Banquet, and one that did credit
to all the officials who arranged it.
At the centre of the head table
sat the Chairman, Dr. Learoyd,
who was an excellent Chairman,
being especially clever with ance-
dotes. On the right of the
Chairman sat Messrs. C. J. Ferguson, President of the A. C. L,
A. Ployart, manager of Mine
Baseball Team; A. Staziker, manager Smelter Football Team, D.
Rowley, C. Wing, Geo. Lee,
H. Seidelman, Geo. Warwick.

Elk's Baseball Team, W. Jones,
manager Elk's Football Team, H.
C. Chapman, Exalted Ruler of
Elks, A. Morton, Chairman of
Football League, H. Baillon, F.
Noel, Max Morrow. While the
seats were being filled, an orchestra of six pieces added to the joy
of the occasion. The musicians
were: A Haesler, piano; G. Liddel, violin; W. Locke and W.
Nevard, cornet; J. Varnes, Trombone; J. Tynmouth, drums.
An excellent musical programme
was given, which was as follows:
Song by Max Morrow, "Shipmates of Mine,"
Recitation by Fred Archer,
"The Wage Slave;" Encore,
"Angel and Woman."
Story by A. Ployart.
Musical Selection, Messrs. Haesler and Liddel, Encore, "The

while the cups went the rounds,
and a wonderful evening of music
and mirth was brought to a close
by the entire company singing

The first dance to be given by

Great credit is due to the Executive Committee, for the mariner in
which it was arranged.
Everything ran smoothly and
without a hitch, both the eats and
the music were of a high grade,
and the 140 persons present spent
a delightful evening.

aid of his assistants, worked hard
to make eveyone enjoy themselves
to the utmost.

The arguments put up by the
various speakers were very interesting and instructive. Roars of
laughter filled the building, as a
speaker scored an opponent for
some previous remark. The best
of good fellowship prevailed
throughout. Everyone had a real
good time, and it is hoped that
these debates will be carried on
interruptedly throughout the win-
lifer, and that those who have not
already joined a class, will do so at
an early date.
Anyox Community
League Meeting
Continued from page 1.
Councillors all took books and will
boost for the biggest membership
'yet.   "
Mr. Maointyre asked for the A.
C. L. decorations for the Armistice
Day Dance of the Servioe Association. The Elks asked for the
Recreation Hall on November 15th.
This was granted.,
It was decided that henceforth,
all business of importance, must be
introduced in the form of a Notice
of Motion a week in advance of its
discussion by the Council. The
question of holding card parties
was discussed and a committee appointed to arrange for
same. Messrs. Seidelman, Lowry
and Noel were named by the Chair.
Mr. Armour asked what had
happened to the advocate of the
toboggan slide. Mr. Sherman reported that he had been unable to
take the matter up, and asked Mr.
Seidelman to go into the matter.
The Chair requested Mr. Seidelman
to make inquiries and report back
at a later meeting.
Mr. Armour asked about the
financial statement. This will be
available for next week's meeting.
Mr. Seidelman asked about the
twenty card tables belonging to
the League. These were stored at
the Mine Hall.
Mr. Sherman asked about windows in the rear end of the new
gymnasium. He thought that
windows there would interfere
with handball playing. It will be
so arranged that these' windows
will be covered at all times if
necessary.  '

Harvest Festival at
Christ Church Anyox
A Harvest Thanksgiving Service
was held at Christ Churoh, on
Sunday last, and notwithstanding
the downpour of rain a goodly
number of people attended. The
sacred edifice was suitably decorated for the occasion with flowers,
fruit, vegetables and evergreen.
The preacher was the Revd. Dean
Quainton, M.A., D.D., of Christ
Church Cathedral, Victoria.
A violin solo was pleasingly
rendered by Mr. J. Parker, accompanied by Miss B. Leitch, during
the Service.
The Dean, who is one of the
foremost preachers in the Dominion delivered a very thoughtful and
practical sermon, from Gal. 6, verse
7, "Be not deceived; God is not
mocked; for whatsoever a man
soweth, that shall he also reap."
This verse, he said, contained one
of the great laws of Harvest. No
one is exempt from it. Whatsoever he sows he shall reap the
same. He may think different,
and deceive himself. He may even
deceive his neighbours, but God is
