Development at Toric
Is Giving Great
Satisfaction
Reports that have been coming
through from the Toric mine during
the past two weeks, unanimously
agree that the ore body now being
crosscut 230 feet below the main
level is much larger than was anticipated. It is said to be over 170
feet wide, with values high enough
to make the whole body of commercial value. Drifts are now being
driven on both walls.
One thing is sure, the Britannia
Co. are satisfied with the results of
development work, to the extent
that they are planning to carry on
development throughout the summer. Last week fifty cases of
powder arrived from Anyox, and
one hundred cases arrived from
Vancouver on Tuesday. Twenty
drums of fuel oil also arrived from
Vancouver during the week.
Development work done to date
on the Toric, indicates that it is
destined to become a big mine. It
is fortunate that operations are
being conducted by a strong mining
company, who can equip the mine
to handle any tonnage of ore.
The Britannia Co. have created
a fund of $500,000 for exploratory
purposes. The bulk of this will be
used in developing their Alice Arm
properties.
There is at present a shortage of
fuel oil at the mine power house.
Every effort is being made to keep
the sleigh road open from Alice
Arm so that a stoppage of operations will not have to be made.
Annual Meeting of Alice Arm
Tennis Club
The annual meeting of the Alice
Arm Tennis Club was held at the
School on Thursday evening, and
quite a number of tennis players
were present.
Officers elected for the coming
year were as follows: President, J.
Trinder; Vice-President, H. Fowler;
Secretary-Treasurer, Mrs. H. F.
Kergin.
The dues for the present season
will be $10.00 for adults and $2.50
for children under 16 years of age.
A committee, comprising the
officers will solicit members at
an early date.
Owing to the lots being sold last
fall on which the court stood, the
onstruction of a new court is
.lecessary. The lumber has already been ordered by Al. Falconer
and construction will commence as
soon as possible.
It will be a board court, and if
necessary can be converted into a
skating rink during the winter
months.
The snow is slowly disappearing
this year, but it is hoped to operate
cars on the Wharf Road next
week.
Anyox I. 0. D. E. Hold
Monthly Meeting
The regular meeting of the Collison of Kincolith Chapter, I. O. D.
E. was held in the basement of the
United Church, at 7.'15 p.m. on
Monday. Regent Mrs. J. Lang
conducted the meeting.
Miss Richards was unanimously
chosen to represent the Chapter at
the Provincial Convention, to be
held in the Empress Hotel, Victoria, April 24th. and 25th.
It was deoided to present to tlie
I. O. D. E. Girl Guides the Union
.lack. A donation of 45.00 was
also given to the United Church.
During an intermission, a delightful programme was enjoyed.
Recitations were given by Mr. Ed.
Ashton and Miss Richards: also
violin selections by Mr. Dennis,
accompanied by Mrs. Redman.
Mrs. S. Peters. Mrs. O'Brien,
and Miss Vera Eve were sworn in
as members of the Order.
Refreshments were served by
Mesdames Youngs, G. H. Stewart,
and A. L. Stewart.
The next meeting will be held
on Tuesday, May 6th. at 2.30 p.m.
in the basement of the United
Cburoh.
Anyox Tennis Clubs  Elect
Officers and Form Plans
The Anyox Tennis Club held its
annual meeting on Friday, April 4
to elect officers. These will be
Hon. Pres. Mr. Charles Bocking;
Hon. Vice- Pres. Mr. W. R. Lindsay, President Mr. George Lee,
Vice-Pres. Mr. R. O. Cutler,
Secretary-Treasurer, Mr. R. W.
Twogood. Also on the executive
of the club are Mesdames Fricker
and Cundill and Messrs. Mclntyre
and Cavers.
Councillor Norton Youngs presented on behalf of the A. C. L.
Council certain resolutions respecting the tennis clubs. Much discussion was evoked, with the executive
finally being directed to hold a conference with the Council.
Interest in the club was well indicated by the good attendance.
The Hidden Creek Tennis Club
was_ duly given its start for this
year at a rather poorly attended
meeting on Thursday, April 3. It
was not for the lack of advertising
that the executive found so few
members at the meeting Last year
they had to stop play on the courts
to get the members into the meeting
hall.
Mr. F. Dresser was again elected
Honorary President. The Executive includes: President: Mr. M.
Thomson; Vice-Pres. Mr. Claude
Reade; Secretary-Treasurer, Mrs.
F. Kidd. Executive members are
Mrs. D. Campbell, Miss Marjorie
Cloke, Mr. Ed. Johnson and Mr.
H. Cathro. The financial statement read by the retiring secretary,
Duncan Campbell, was highly satisfactory, and in resigning the chair,
the former president Mr. Joe Anderson prophesied a good year for the
club.
Tennis Problems Are
Discussed By Council
Wednesday night's council meeting was well attended, the combined executives of the tennis clubs
being present. Mr. G. M. Lee,
speaking for the tennis clubs, convinced the council that the matter
of inter-club membership and play
would be better left to the joint
action of the executives. He indicated that an addition fee of $1.50
would be exacted from those desiring to be members of both clubs.
The question of responsibility for
the upkeep of the courts was fully
discussed, every argument bearing
on the case being brought forward.
The discussion will result in the
drawing up of a new agreement between the League and the Clubs
with a view to a clearer understanding of the obligations of all concerned.
It was agreed that no one should
be given membership in a tennis
club without producing evidence of
good standing in the Communitv
League. As the League levies an
all-year fee, production of the membership card once a year was deemed likely to be sufficient.
Machine Will Be Displayed
At Concert
The display of the high-frequency
machine intended for the night
school's closing social will be made
later in the month by T. Mitchell
and his night-school class in Recreation Hall on the occasion of a concert to be arranged by the Anyox
Amateur Orchestra, Stuart Steele,
conductor. There will be a charge
of 50 cents, proceeds in aid of the
Hospital.

Bay centre in June are requested to

16th. inst.
Steamship Brings in Powder
On Tuesday, the steamship
Northolm arrived at Alice Arm
from Vancouver with a consignment of blasting powder for G. W.
Bruggy, Wm. Steven and the Britannia Mining Co.
The general "lay-off" at the
Anyox plant on Wednesday afforded many a chance to enjoy the
brilliant spring sunshine that has
been so welcome lately. Many
smaller craft were afloat for the
first time this season, and many
more boat-owners got in a good
day's work on their galleons.
L. O. Lycette, arrived  in  town
on Wednesday.
League Council Discuss
Much Business
Satisfactory progress financially
during March was reported at the
A. C. L. Council meeting on Wednesday. . The Smoker had increased
the League's assets by the sum of
cost of the ring and the wrestling
mat, and further smokers should
show a handsome cash profit. The
Council directed that appropriate
expressions of thanks be conveyed
to Mr, Fred Brown and others associated with the enterprise.
Aspects ofthe situation regarding
the installation of Talking pictures
were pointed out and will form the
agenda of special meetings later.
Turning to Library affairs, the
Council decided that measures to
discipline troublesome children
might have to be adopted. On
the question of books, the Council
went on record as being the final
judges in regard to what books
were to be allowed to remain on the
shelves.
In the House Department cues
for billiards and pool were ordered,
and it was decided to present cues
to the Mine team as their individual
prizes in the Billiard League.
Recreation Hall was rented to the
Choral Society for a concert on
May 9th.
John A. Swanson Going To
Russia
John A. Swanson, formerly
superintendent for the Granby Co.
at the Hidden Creek mine at Anyox
has accepted a position as mine
superintendent in Russia for the
Russian government. He will superintend the developing of a large
copper property, and expects to'
leave as soon as the necessary passport regulations are complied with.
He is at present living near Vancouver. Mrs. Swanson will probably join him later.

two Canadian National Steamships
will call at Anyox each week. One
will call on Wednesday night as

other will call on Saturday, also

Certificate Winners Of
Anyox Night Schools
Announced
One of the most inspiring community gatherings of recent times
was held on Wednesday evening
of last week in the Gymnasium on
the occasion of the first annual
closing exercises of the Anyox
Night Schools. A crowd of over
three hundred, including students,
teachers and friends gathered to
make merry.
This year, the fifteen classes
which were organized, covered
nine subjects. These were English, vocal music, band music, orchestral music, mechanical drawing
mining and milling, electrical
engineering and dressmaking.
Approximately eighty Certificates
of Merit were awarded to various
worthy students.
The chairman, Mr. A. Gigot,
with a few fitting remarks, opened
tlie meeting, and complimented
the organizer of the Night Schools.
Mr. D. J. Hartley, on the very
successful termination of the year's
activities. From comparative figures he showed the increasing
attendance and interest in the
night school classes during the last
three years.
The programme was entirely put
on by the various classes. Among
the contributing classes were those
of Messrs. Stuart Steel. J. Varnes,
N. Redman and T. Mitchell.
The orchestral and band selections were extremely well rendered.
A vocal trio, consisting of Misses
Mildred Dresser, Marjorie Cloke
and Florence Dodsworth was heard
to advantage.
Mr. T. J. Kirkwood made a few
pointed remarks on the value to be
gained from the night classes.
Personally he expressed the hope
to see the field of study broadened
to include many additional subjects.
Mr. Redman gave a few interesting remarks, stressing the value
of developing the fine arts of orchestral music, band music and
vocal.
In a few remarks, Mr. W. R.
Lindsay, general superintendent of
the Granby Co. stressed the value
of night school training to the employees of the Granby Co. In the
case of the foreign population this
was particularly true in the case of
language study, which was very
valuable as a safety factor. Also,
any training for employees along
their respective technical lines, is
very valuable to the employees
and the company.
An unexpected but a most welcome guest was Mr. Stephen E.
Raymer. consul for the kingdom of
Jugo-Slavia. Ir. a few remarks
interspersed with wit and originality, he declared the present gathering was an inspiration unique in
his many visits to various communities in British Columbia during
the past nineteen years.
The evening closed with refreshments and dancing.

See   American Consul
Before Going Taku
The Herald has received a communication from Mr. G. C. Woodward, American Consul at Prince
Rupert, in which he states that:
''Under the present United
States Immigration Regulations
transit certificates issued by American consular officers are required
by aliens, other than Canadian
citizens, aud British subjects domiciled in Canada, when entering
or passing through the United
States destined to another country.
"In order to facilitate travel conditions, a recent ruling exempts
Juneau, Alaska from this provision, which as well applies to Hyder
and Skagway, Alaska. This will
facilitate travel to and from the
Taku country. Those, however,
who intend remaining in Alaska
for any period, should consult the
American consulate at Prince ..Rupert, before going north for the
purpose of ascertaining whether a
consular visa is necessary."

Brady Voices Opinion
On Unemployment
Speaking on the Heap's unemployment amendment last week, J.
C. Brady, M. P. for Skeena, eon-
tended that unemployment was a
national responsibility. There
would be no problem he declared,
if 60 per cent of the $100,000,000
which Canada paid yearly to the
United States for manufactured
goods could be kept in Canada.
If the Conservatives should come
into power, Mr. Brady predicted
that all unemployed would be at
work within live months, and within Hve years, there would bo work
for a million more people in Canada.
Says Price of Copper
Will Shortly Drop
New York—Pointing out that
exports of copper are well below
the HI29 rate and that the automobile industry is taking much
less metal than it did a year ago,
The Brookmire Economic Service.
Inc., says that a growing inventory
burden cannot be borne much longer if the demand does not improve
faster than now appears to be
likely. Though producers are curtailing, it is doubtful that this
action can be carried to sufficient
length to permit maintenance of
the 18o. level. A price cut cannot
be deferred much longer.

•Rate of Interest earned on mean invested assets 7.^2%
The high rale of dividends allotted to participating policyholders is continued and the special
dividend on maturing policies extended end increased.
EXTRACTS FROM DIRECTORS' REPORT
New policies paid fcr numbered 161,391 for a net
amount of $054,451,143.27, an advance of $213,206,-
752.36, or more than forty-eight per cent., over the
previous year. This marked increase and tlie fact
that the average policy, lor the first time, er.ceeded
$4,000, afford impressive evidence of the evergrowing popularity of the Company.
After deducting amounts reassured, the total
assurances in force amount to $2,401,237,036.94, an
increaseof $501,321,102.37. This advance is notable
not merely for its magnitude, but because when
allowance is made for terminations by death and
maturity, it represents a remarkably high rate of
continuance, and evidences great satisfaction on the
part of our policyholders.
The amount paid to policyholders since organization, together with the amount at present held for
their security or benefit, e::ceeds the total amount
received from them in premiums by $139,290,474.03.
The rate of interest earned on the mean invested
assets has risen to 7.02 per cent. This figure includes
a certain amount from bonuses and stock privileges
accruing on many of the Company's holdings; but if
these were entirely eliminated the rate would still be
6.60 per cent.
A net profit of $13,077,284.62 was realized from
the redemption or sale of securities.
The surplus earned during the year, based on the
values entered in the accounts, amounted to $42,-
863,578.59, but from this sum substantial appropriations have as usual been made to further strengthen
the position of the Company.
An additional $10,000,000.00 has been deducted
from the market values of our securities as a provision against possible market fluctuations, raising
the amount thus set aside for this purpose in the
accounts to $30,000,000.0(1.
A further $1,000,000.00 has been written off the
Company's buildings.
$931,000.00 has been appropriated to raise the
annuity reserves to the Rutherford table of valuation,
with interestat3,J<3 percent. This exacting standard
requires reserves $2,656,000r00 in excess of those of
the Dominion Government standard.
$1,200,000.00 has been set aside as additional provision for claims arising from total disability, death
claims as yet unreported, and possible claims under
cancelled policies on which a surrender value or reinstatement might be applied for.
$22,606,265.67 has been paid or allotted as profits
for the year to policyholders.
_ The special amount entered as a liability to provide for unforeseen contingencies has been maintained at $12,500,000.00.
After making all these deductions and allocations,
$5,S6o,S99.96 has been added to the undivided surplus, bringing the total over liabilities, contingency
accounts and capital stock, to $60,307,762.44.
In accordance with our usual conservative practice
the securities owned by the Company have again
been valued at figures much below tlie market quotations current at the close of the } car. This undervaluation represents an important element of
strength to the Company additional to the specific
provisions in the statements.
Your Directors are pleased to announce that the
high scale of profits at present allotted to participating policy holders will be continued during the ensuing
year,while the Special Dividend on maturing policies,
introduced last year, has been extended to include
policies maturing after having been in force five
years or longer and the scale of benefit has been
increased.
The business of th? Company has always been
conducted under the exacting provisions ofthe
Canadian Insurance law and the rigid supervision of the Insurance Department of the
Government of Canada. liver since we entered the I Inited States in 1895, the Company
has b :en under similar supervision there and
is now subject to the regulations of thirty-
eight States of the Union which require
periodical examination of the affairs of all
companies licensed in thoir territory. In the
discharge of their regular duties a committee
of twenty-two examiners, representing the
States of Michigan, Massachusetts, Minnesota,
Ohio, Tennessee, Washington, Virginia, West
Virginia, Florida and the District of Columbia
recently completed an exhaustive exam ination
into every department of the Company's
affairs. The report of this committee
makes gratifying reference to the liberal
treatment accorded to our policyholders, and
provides authoritative testimony to the Company's strength. Even adopting the low
valuations placed by us on our securities, the
committee still reported a surplus at the close
of last year $1,333,921.71 in excess of the
figure claimed by the Company.

League of Nations' Day
On Wednesday
Wednesday, April 16th. has been
thus far designated as "League of
Nations Day". On that day the
hundreds of local branches of the
League of Nations Society arrange
public meetings to remind all who
will listen of the dangers latent in
the present world organization,
How real the possibilities of war
are can be understood by examining the rivalries that the Disarmament Conference has exposed.
Millions of unemployed throughout
the world have demonstrated a willingness to resort to violence to improve their lot.
They need only to be exploited by
self-seeking politicians to precipitate a clash that may involve the
world in disaster. Some nations
are suffering from over-production
of armaments, and some are lamenting an over-supply of metals, wheat,
and other materials which overnight can become the sinews of
war. The first group stands ready
to plunder the others who, in their
turn, would be glad to compel their*
rivals to open their markets to the
products that are unsold.
The adjustment of these economic
and social problems is the ambition
of the League of Nations. To conduct the League's business requires
monetary aid from its members.
Already the complaint is being made
that Canada's participation costs
too much. It is to combat propaganda of .that sort that the local
branch of the League of Nations
Society exists. The local secretary,
Mr. Fred Graham, will be glad to
enrol you as a member. Your share
of the "peace insurance" premium
und of the cost of world co-operation
is one dollar.
