Elks' Flag & Children's
Day Was a Huge
Success
With a glorious day before them
the committee in oharge of the Elks'
Fourteenth Annual Flag and Childrens Day, started the Big Day
promptly at 1 p.m. Every boy and
girl was given a flag, balloon, and
a hat and with these necessary additions, the parade to the ball
grounds started- There were
clowns, athletes, and other fancy
dressed ohildren. Also there was
a very realistic model of au aeroplane, a small float representing
Au Old-fashioned Garden and another representing a public library.
The work done ou these little floats
was a oredit to the children responsible for same.
Arriving at the ball grounds W
■ Ii. Overend gave a short address
on "Our Flag." He pointed out
that the Elks is a patriotic Order
and one of their main aims is to
teaoh every boy and girl to be loyal
to their country and flag. Mr. N,
It. Redman then led the singing of
"0 Canada."
During the afternoon each boy
and girl was given all the peanuts,
all the lemonade, all the ice cream
and all the hot dogs that he or she
could eat.
The large number of sport events
were capably handled by Elk Offi
cials and completed ou schedule
time. The Big Day • war topped
off by a novelty "Grocery Dance"
held iu the evening at the Elks'
Hall.
There were very few decorated
wagons and carriages in this year's
Elks' Flag and Children's Day
Parade, but to make up for same,
many of the children were dressed
in colorful costumes. The prize
for the best float went to Sonny
Youngs for his "Aeroplane." "An
Old-fashioned Garden" entered by
Nadine Wenerstrom and Honor
Warden and "The Library" entered by Nanette Taylor and Phyllis
Cutler tied for second place. Each
float received a prize. The prizes
for the best dressed children went
'. to the Carrick children and also
to the Levoir children-

Ideal Weather Prevailed
Alice Arm Picnic
The annual picnic of the Alice
Arm Anglican Church Sunday
School held at Campers' Point on
Saturday afternoon was a huge
success. The weather was ideal; a
large number attended; mountains
of good eats and buckets of ice
cream all helped towards a successful picnic.
Everyone was conveyed to the
destination by Rev. W. F. Delap
on board the Northern Cross.
During the afternoon, swimming
was indulged in by the younger
generation. Boat riding was also
enjoyed, and races on the beach
were held from the tiniest tots to
the older people who forget their
age on such occasions.
The call for supper found the
tables loaded with good things to
eat and drink and although everyone strove to do their share in disposing of the eats, it could not be
done, and "believe it or not" the
ice cream became a drag on the
market.
To round off the day's celebration
a dance was held at T. W. Falconer's hall in the evening, and a very
enjoyable time was spent for a few
hours.
Scouts   Are   Enjoying
Camp Life
, jpqjrt Simpson has proven itself a
wonderful camping place according
to word that has come through
from Scoutmaster Gale. The surrounding country abounds in trails
thus affording many interesting
hikes. The Boy Scouts are quartered together in one residence,
which is situated near clear warm
water. Several of the boys claim
that fishing off the wharf is very
good. They should have lots of
"fish yarns" to tell when they return to Anyox.
In the evening when the day's
routine is over the boys gather
around a big bonfire on the beach
and sing songs. The people of
Port Simpson have taken kindly to
our boys in that they are invited
out to the different homes. Scoutmaster Gale reports that every boy
is in the pink of condition and all
have enormous appetites. They
will arrive back in Anyox on
Monday, July 30th.

Oddfellows Down The
Dynamiters 3-2
Lazorek Shows Old Form To
Take Tight Battle
The boys in blue aud white put
up a battle on Friday last that
would not concede defeat, and ii'
nally emerged on the long end of a
3-2 count, whioh seemed to please
the large crowd. Lazorek was in
tare form having wonderful control
of his fast breaking drop. On the
other hand it was a heartbreaking
game for Langdale to lose. He
pitched fine ball throughout the
contest, but errors at critical times
led to his downfall. From the
consistent form that this man has
displayed throughout the season, it
appears to the writer, that the
local moguls might well have used
him in the series against Ketchikan.
Two of the Dynamiters were
thrown out at first to make the
third outs after runs had crossed
the plate. Both could have easily
been safe with a little more hustle..
Freddie Calderoni uncorked a
beautiful throw from tbe deep outfield to cut off Mike Chenoski as
he was gayly sauntering homeward. Musser went into the box
in the fifth long enough to retire
two batters and break up a threatening Dynamiter rally. Charlie
leans a little to the psychological.

Elks Stumble On Their
Penant Drive
Docherty Proves Real Find
Although they made their share
of the errors in the game on Sunday, the Oddfellows steadied down
at the critical times, and turned in
the second consecutive victory for
Johnnie Lazorek. Oddfellows
suffered two more in their long
string of casualties this summer,
when both their leading hitter
Gunner Anderson and their first
string receiver Vinoe Vincenzi,
turned up ou the injured list. They
were forced to press young Docherty into service and are now almost pleased that they were put
up against it. ■ He produced two
hits in three times at bat, drove in
two runs and had both a put out
and an assist to his oredit in the
outfield. If this team can ever
turn out at full strength it should
provide plenty of competition for
the other two.
Arseneau failed to touch third
in his hurry to score in the first
lining, and since his omission was
detected by both the Umpire and
Charlie Musser his tally had to be
erased. It would appear that
George has corns, for he later failed
to touch first, but this time the
coach brought him back.
The Oddfellows earned their victory, inasmuch as the Elks were
still more wobbly in the field. The
crowd waR not quite up to the
oiistomary standard.

Examination Made Of
Esperanza Mine
J. E. McCloskey, President of the
McCloskey Mining and Milling Service Corporation Ltd. of Vancouver,
arrived at Alice Arm on Monday.
His visit was in connection with
the Esperanza mine. During this
Week he has made an examination
of all underground workings and
the dumps at the Esperanza, and
also examined the ore showings on
the Alice.
If the result of his examinations
is satisfactory the above company
will install a 20-ton mill at the Esperanza, and further develop the
mine. Another engineer is expected to arrive tomorrow to also make
an examination.
Mr. McCloskey stated that in his
opinion the price of silver would
continue to slowly rise until it is
again high enough for profitable
mining. In mines where the silver
ore carry gold values he said that
quite often the high price of gold
more than offset the low price of
silver. Mr. McCloskey is leaving
today for Vancouver.
Scout News From Simpson
Camp
The boy scouts at Port Simpson,
were pleasantly surprised with a
little treat sent over by the Rovers,
last week. Five watermelons is a
large order even for twenty boys,
but if we know our scout troop,
there wasn't much left.
The boys have been rather bothered by colds and 6 or 7 have had
mild attacks of whooping cough
but by and large they seem to be
having a "whale of a good time."
Other visitors at Simpson include
Mrs. Jack Carr and family, Miss
Virginia McMillan, and Miss
Daphne Warwick.
One scout reports the weather as
fair "with an occasional raindrop
a couple of thousand times a day."
All of which goes to show that the
term "all wet" applies to other
places beside Anyox.
H. C.   Tennis Tournament
Being Played
The Hidden Creek Tennis Club
Championship games have started.
Although the club has a membership of twenty-four, only the seven
best players amongst the male
members signed up for the tournament. This year only the Men's
Singles will be played on account of
the scarcity in numbers of the fair
sex. The winner of this event wins
the W. B. Maxwell Cup. The
present holder of the Cup is W. J.
Dixon, who is out to. defend his
title as the club's champion player.
Mrs. A. McLean left on Monday
for a visit to the south.
First Game of A.C.L. Tennis
Championship
The first game in A. C. L. Open
Tennis Championship was played
on Thursday afternoon, July I9th.
Same was played between A. Pearson and J. Turnbull, the latter winning by 6-2 and 6-3. Now that the
fine weather is here again it is
hoped that many more games will
be played.
With Capt. G. Docherty in command the M. S. Granby left for
Vancouver, early Thursday morning, July 19th. Beside her crew
she carried four passengers: Mr.
W. R. Lindsay, Mr. G. M. Lee,
Masters Jack Lindsay, and Edward
Healy.
The Softball Teams Are
Fighting Hard These
Days
The.brand of softball dished up
recently hasn't been at all hard to
swallow. In fact the teams are
progressing so much that the fans
are beginning to go home looking
for a gargle to cure that hoarseness.
The games on Thursday, July
19th. were certainly worth a walk
down and a nickel in the old hat.
Double headers are becoming a
feature and during our long sum'
mer evenings why not?
In the first slam-and-slither the
Adanacs, in the manner of their
numerous famous namesakes,
trampled quite indelicately all over
the prostrate and suffering Foundry. As far as could be seen the
Foundry men were suffering from
an overdose of sloppy fielding, complicated by a bad attack of nervousness at the bat with an overwhelming inferiority complex thrown in.
Score 15-4 in favor of the Adanacs.
Nuff Sed!
The second act was staged by the
Bonanza and X-Rupert, with a
chorus accompaniment by the spectators.
The High Grade men made a
very determined attempt to retain a
hard won lead in the League. They
claim to be the best and sure did
their darndest to prove it.
X-Rupert also takes the stand that
they are the star team, and to prove
it they took the underground men
into camp in a very big way. The
game was undoubtedly one of the
best of the season. Petovillo,
chucking for Bonanza was the main
stay of the team, and did good work
in holding the hardest hitting team
in the league to six runs.
Allan, for the rainy city boys is
no slouch whatever, but it was undoubtedly the good fielding and
hard working that won the game
for X-Rupert 6-1.
On Saturday the 21st. another
double header drew softball fans to
the Flat's Park. X-Rupert stepped
up one more game and lengthened
their lead in the league with a hard
earned win over the Roustabouts.
The latter worked hard all the way
and had the top team decidedly
worried at many points in the game.
Dave Castrocagno turned in some
nice plays and fast fielding as his
contribution to the Roustabout's
endeavors.
The Chenoski brothers shone for
X-Ruperts, with Nick a regular
stonewall at third, while Pete at
second talked and played a real
good ball game.
Allen, sizzling 'em for the cold
storage boys was in his usual good
form, while Ion showed up good on
the mound for the Rousters.
The sixth was the Roustabouts'
Waterloo when George Casey and
Slim Moore connected for a three-
bagger apiece and brought in 5
runs.
Referee Fred Stephens came in
for some tall razzin' and gave no
evidence that he liked it at all. If
our opinion counts for anything,
there was nothing the matter with
his eyesight. The score was 9-5 in
favor of the X-Rupert.
The second big League game of
the evening produced a big kick for
the fans and many agonizing moments for the Bonanza ball team.
The Grinders, with rookies in
pinch hitting for absent regulars,
were leading the Bonanza boys by
the nose with a five-run lead in the
first of the sixth.
The grinding boys got away to a

Be Careful With Fire
During Hot Weather
During the next six weeks we
will undoubtedly experience periods
of hot, dry weather. When these
occur it is the duty of everyone to
be extremely careful with fire, both
when in the woods and around
buildings. A carelessly thrown
lighted match, cigarette, cigar or
pipe ash may start a serious confutation. In the vicinity of Anyox
it is of particular importance that
the greatest care be exercised,as a
few days' hot sun immediately dries
the ground and increases the possibilities of fire much more than in
places where the ground is covered
with green trees and underbrush.
Be sure your matches and smoking material are extinguished before
you throw them away. When you
are in the woods be sure also that
your camp fire is extinguished before leaving it. Don't take a chance
You may be sorry afterwards.
Late Henry Horstman Was
Buried At Stewart
A large number were present at
the funeral service in the United
Church at Stewart on Sunday, July
15th. to pay their last respects to
one of Stewart's oldest residents,
Henry Horstman who died at his
home there on the 14th. at the age
of 53.
The late Mr. Horstman came to
Stewart first in 1906,and since that
time has been interested in mining
there. He leaves a large number
of friends in the north. He was a
widower and is survived by three
married daughters.
That Summer Holiday
Have you taken your summer
holidays yet? If you have not, you
should do so within the next six
weeks. Everyone who has worked
continuously for the last twelve
months or more, longs for a holiday.
Often the pocket book will not
allow a trip to the southern part of
the province, but that is not really
necessary for a holiday. Within
18 miles of Anyox is located the
town of Alice Arm, one of the
prettiest summer resorts in Canada.
Here can be found first-class fishing
creeks, shady walks, berries of all
kinds in profusion, wild flowers,
green grass and leafy trees. An
ideal place for a restful holiday.
What more is needed?
All  Relief Recipients Must
Again Register
Registration of unemployed and
destitute persons in British Columbia will commence on August 25
under plans approved by the cabinet
recently.
Registration will be carried on by
relief officers in the cities and by
government agents' offices in country districts.
All persons now on relief lists who
want furthur relief after August 1
are advised ao apply early. The
existing relief lists will be cancelled
on August 1.
The registration of something
like 100,000 unemployed will take
some weeks to complete. Each
applicant will be questioned closely
to eliminate as far as possible from
the new list all those who are not in
real need.
Consolidated Negotiating For
Stewart Property
Negotiations which have been
under way for some time between
the Consolidated Mining and Smelting Co., and Mrs. E. T. Apple-
whaite and P. S. Jack, owners,
were concluded last week, whereby
the Consolidated has acquired an
option on the Day Group of Mineral Claims situated on the west
side of the Big Missouri Ridge according to a statement made to the
Stewart News by the vendors, subject to formal acceptance by the
Company
The terms of the option as to
payments involved and period of
time is not definitely disclosed but
is understood to be satisfactory.
Large Ore Shoot Located On
Big Missouri
H.   F.   Glassey   Appointed
Government Agent, Atlin
W. VV. Wright, government
agent for Atlin, has been relieved of
his duties and will be succeeded by
H, F. Glassey of Prince Rupert,
Premier T. D. Pattullo announced
recently.
Mr. Glassey is a well known and
popular pioneer resident of the
north, having been in the service of
the Hudson Bay Co. at Hazelton
from 1904 until coming to Prince
Rupert in 1916,
A large ore shoot of commercial
grade varying in width from 12 to
50 feet has been definitely located
for a considerable distance on the
Province tunnel level Big Missouri
mine, Portland Canal, according to
an official report to shareholders
signed by G. H. Rainville, president. The location of the ore shoot
has been the result of an intensive
development campaign since last
October, by Buena Vista Mining
Co. Ltd., "Smelters" subsidiary
which holds a 60% interest in the
property. Opening up of the ore
shoot by raisiug. 700 feet to the surface has already begun and on advice of W. M. Archibald, mines
manager for Consolidated, a tunnel
will be driven to obtain between 500
and 600 feet additional depth

which has been affected in blending

WfcH Canoe ^paddle
HANGE is the prime
essence of a vacation
and a canoe trip in
, Canada is one method
| by which the stress of
daily life can be cx-
ff changed for a tranquil,
carefree existence. It
may be for a limited
time only but its effects are felt all
the year round. Jostling crowds,
rumble of traffic, hot pavements
and vitiated air have no
in the life of the canoeist.
A large number of interesting
routes are outlined in " Canoe Trips
in Canada," a booklet recently issued-
by the National Parks of Canada,
Department of the Interior, Ottawa.
Following the routes described therein one can drift lazily along or relive the strenuous days of the voya-
geur. There are cruises which lead
for a hundred miles through canal,
stream and lake with alternating
civilization and lightly wooded
country. There are long, smooth
flowing rivers and placid lakes on
which one can travel for days, and
by contrast rushing streams which
ever and again break into foaming
rapids and thundering falls. There
are adventurous trips through wilderness country along routes once followed by Indian and fur-trader, now
almost forgotten so seldom are they
travelled. Strange geological formations, wild life, good fishing, the
charming and the picturesque await
the advent of one's canoe on the
numerous and varied water trails
of Canada.
"SEA CHANGE"
Captain R. G. Latta (left) and Captain R. N. Stuart.   Centra photo  thorn a  portion  of tho hufa  crowd that
assembled at Wolfe'i Cove, Quebec, Saturday, June 30, to wave farewell to the popular "Jock" Latta.
A famous Atlantic skipper severed his connection with the
sea at the completion of voyage
44 of the Canadian Pacific flagship, Empress of Britain.
Captain Robert Gilmour Latta,
first Commodore of Canada's big
passenger fleet, first commander
of the Empire's latest luxury
liner, and friend of Princes, Prime
Ministers, and thousands of other
travellers from all parts of the
world, has been retired under the
pension plan of the Canadian Pacific after 30 years ln passenger
service between Canada and the
Old Country.
E. W. Beatty K.C., President of
the Canadian Pacific, said in announcing his retirement: "His departure from the sea will bo a
loss that is balanced only by the
gain which will accrue to the
land In which he takes up his
residence. While it is with
regret that his friends ln the
Company say farewell to Commodore Latta, and that his close
association with us comes to an
end, all, I am sure, Join with me
in felicitating him upon being
still young enough to anticipate
many yearB of useful service to
his community."
At the age of 62 Commodore
Latta completes 38 years as a
seaman. He started as an apprentice in the sailing ship "Ar-
dencralg" in 1896, and joined the
Canadian service eight years later
as a Fourth Officer. He was appointed to command in 1923, aud
became the first Captain of the
42,500 ton Empress of Britain for
her maiden voyage in May, 1931,
from which date the big liner has
not known the hand of any other
commander ln the course of travelling 320,000 miles.
T. C. Captain Promoted.
Co-incident with the announcement of Captain Latta's retirement was the appointment of Captain R. N. Stuart, V.C., D.S.O.,
U.S.N.C., R. D„ R.N.R., as the second Commander of the big white
liner, and the second Commodore
of the Canadian Pacific fleet.
Captain Stuart also commenced
his association with the sea in a
sailing ship, and his appointment
at the age of 47 aB the youngest
Commodore in the Merchant Service culminates 32 years of sea
service which included four and
a half years in the navy during
the war.
His war service is well known,
and as a commander of "Mystery
ShipB" and Destroyers he waii
awarded the Victoria Cross, Distinguished Service Order and
Bar, and the Navy Cross of the
United States. Of him Mr. Beatty
said, "Captain Stuart's record for
his Country is one of the outstanding war stories of the sea,
and his record with the Company
is equally brilliant.
"Command of the Empress of
Britain with her high speed and
almost continuous service, calls
for men of very high calibre, and
I know that in appointing Captain
Stuart to the Empress of Britain,
and naming him the second Commodore of the Canadian Pacific
fleet, we have chosen a worthy
successor to Captain Latta."
The transfer of command took
plaoe at Southampton July 7,
when Captain Stuart took over his
new command, and the genial
"Jock" Latta swallowed tha
anchor.

These Days

good start with 7 runs in the 4th.
which brought them to 11 in the
6th. against the Bonanza's 6.
However, the boys from over the
hill settled down in the 6th. to get
12 runs, which we believe is this
season's record. After that blowup the Grinders just couldn't get
together and the game ended with
the score 18-11 in favor of Bonanza.
Vessaro and Petovillo did the
honors for Bonanza with Gillies
talking it up from the receiving
end.
Hardy and Hopkinson were the
Grinder's battery. They swapped
positions in the fatal sixth, which
may account for the blowup.

Very Popular
The Annual Elks' Flag and Children's Day Dance held on Wednesday, July 25th. was an outstanding
success. The Elks are to be complimented for providing tho people
of Anyox with a dance out of the
ordinary. A most delicious supper
was served and some of the lady
guests were able to take their
breakfast home also, iu the form of
groceries, that were given away
during several of the dances to
those persons standing under a
lucky number. A very nice crowd
turned out for the dance and the
music furnished by the Elks' Orchestra was of the best.
Warm sunshine—very warm—
has been prevalent throughout
this district for the past week.
Thermometer readings have given
90 degrees of heat, which is the
hottest weather for at least 3 years.
