The B. P. 0. Elks Hold
Memorial Service
On Sunday last, at the Elks'
Hall, the Anyox Lodge of the B. P.
O. E. held their Annual Memorial
Service. This service, which is
held by all the Elks' Lodges
throughout Canada and Newfoundland on the first Sunday in December, is specially prepared to do
honor to the memory of departed
Brother Elks.
The choir of the United Church
rendered two anthems, which were
much appreciated. A most appropriate address was given by the
Rev. Evan Baker, pastor of the
United Church, and Brother E. Ross
Oatman gave a cornet solo. The
Thanatopsis was read by Brother B.
M. Buck, and the singing of the
National Anthem, with the Benediction by Rev. Baker, brought to a
close a most impressive service.
Will Hold Tennis Dance
On Monday
After a period of time, in which
all social activities in Anyox were
suspe'nded on account of the epedemic of flu, the doors of the Gymnasium are once more opened and
the* Annual Tennis Dance becornes
the centre of interest. It promises
to be a brilliant function. Dancing
will continue from 9.30 to 2.30.
The trophies won by the Anyox
Tennis Clubs will be presented during the evening. As on similar occasions, there will be an appetizing
supper, the floor will be specially
prepared, and the music will be of
the best.   With all the preparations
Big Fire At Stewart On
Tuesday Destroyed
_ Much Property
A fire, which at one time threat
ened to destroy the whole business
section of Stewart started at 2 a.m.
on Tuesday. It originated in the
Stewart Hotel and was not noticed
until it had obtained a firm hold.
It spread rapidly and engulfed the
Beaman Block occupied by the Acadia Rooms, Stewart Drug Co. and
Campbell & Duke. It also destroyed the buildings occupied by the
Stewart News, Stewart Cafe, and
Lyon's Meat Market. Heroic
efforts prevented the spreading of
the fire to the Government Liquor
Store which adjoined the burnt area.
So firm ahold had the fire before
it was noticed that it was necessary
for James-McAleenan, proprietor of
the Stewart Hotel to jump from an
upstairs window to save his life.
In jumping he fractured several ribs
and suffered other injuries.
The night was cold, the thermom
eter registering eight degrees' above
zero. A north wind was blowing
and this helped to ;keep the fire from
The loss is estimated at approximately $60,000 and is partly cover
ed by insurance. It is the worst
fire Stewart has ever experienced,
and will be a serious blow to the
town. It will be without a weekly
newspaper for some time at least,
which is quite a handicap to a progressive town such as Stewart.
The Stewart News was owned and
edited by H. W. M. Rolston, who
was always in the forefront to fight
for the town's welfare.

I. 0. P. E, Are Active With
Relief Plans
The monthly meeting of the Collison of Kincolith Chapter, I. O. D.
E., was held in the Canadian Legion
Club Room on Monday evening,
December Sth. Regent Mrs. C. O.
Fricker presiding.
Plans were discussed for providing ways and means for further assisting the unemployed mep of
Anyox who are in receipt of Gov>
ernment relief. Christmas relief is
also being extended by the local
Chapter to a needy family at Tupper
Creek B. C. Donations have been
forwarded to the Santa Claus'funds
of the Vancouver Province and Sun.
The daughter of a returned soldier
residing at Salmon Arm, B. C,
will receive a Christmas hamper.
A hearty vote of thanks was accorded to all those who have in any
way helped the relief Committee.
The hostesses for the evening
were Mesdames J. Dunn, J. T.
Evans and D. T. Evans.

Alice Arm for several years previous to moving to Stewart. He also

Christmas Oratorio To
Be Presented
A treat is in store for the music
loving people of Anyox on Wednesday the 21st. when the augmented
choir of the United Church, will
render the famous Oratorio, "The
Messiah". This splendid work of
Handel's beloved of English speaking people the world over, calls for
well trained voices thoroughly fam-
ilar with'the score, and for exacting
solo work, and this ambitious choir
deserves great credit for their efforts
on behalf of the people of Anyox,
who love sacred music.
The soloists on this occasion will
be Mrs. V. McRae, Mrs. J. McMillan, Mrs. J. Peel, Mr. W. F.
Eve and Mr. N. R. Redman. The
choir will be under the direction of
the latter. Mr. F. Dresser will be
the organist. The event will take
place in the Elks' Hall and a crowded house might well be anticipated

13. MOSS, Editor and Publisher,
Although it is not generally realized, the multitude of licences
and taxes imposed on residents ol
British Columbia during the past
twenty years is aggravating the unemployment problem of the small
town. At the present time, if a
man wishes to do anything for himself he is hampered by licenses
and taxes until in bewilderment he
abandons the idea of trying to help
himself and lets the government
feed him from taxes paid to it
by others. Today a man cannot
set out a few traps for fur without
being taxed. He cannot even
catch a few fish. He is not allowed to shoot a deer, goat, goose, or
duck unless he has paid a licence.
He cannot cut any timber, prospect
or stake a claim. If he does own
a claim he is taxed when he starts
developing it by doing assessment
work. He cannot do a thing unless he has paid for a licence.
Twenty-five years ago a man was
not hampered by such foolish restrictions. He could, if he had
any ambition always turn his hand
to something that brought in enough money to pay for flour bacon
and beans. We believe it would
benefit the government if i abolished all the petty restrictions above
mentioned. The collecting of
many petty taxes and the necessary book keeping, often exceeds
the amount of money obtained.     [
Some organizations never render
assistance to non-members Some
occasionally assist deserving persons
or institutions, while there are
others who are continually assisting the more unfortunate members
of humanity, striving to alleviate
their suffering and raise hope. In
the last category, can be placed
the Collison of Kincolith Chapter,
I. O. D. E. Since this Chapter
was formed in Anyox several
years ago, the chief aim of the
officers and members has been the
liberal disbursement of funds to
assist deserving institutions and
individuals. Quietly and without
ostentation, this band of ladies are
increasingly active in raising funds
and disbursing them to those who
are in need of assistance. It
would be a much better world for
everyone if the Christain spirit
displayed by the Anyox Daughters of the Empire was copied
more often by individuals. Charity
is true Christianity.
The Canadian gold output in the
first eight months of this year totalled 2,011,000 ounces, valued at
$41,577,000, an increase of 287,000
ounces and $5,937,000 over the
same period last year.
Georgia River Co. May
Install Mill
Good progress is being made
with developments on the Georgia
River Gold Mines property according to Bert Shearme who was in
town on business during the fore
part of the week, says the Stewart
News. Asked as to the nature of
the work now being done. Mr.
Shearme stated that developments
are being confined to drifting on
the southwest vein, recently encountered, south with a view to
encountering at a depth, on the dip
of some four hundred feet the main
vein, in which some very speotaeu-
lar values in gold were obtained
near the surface. The ore being
extracted in the course of this development is being stored said Mr.
Shearme, one sample of which
gave a return of as high as $380
in gold.
In presenting the annual report
to the shareholders Wellington
Beaton, president, stated that: the
next step in addition to further
exploration will be the blocking
ont of ore and the erection of a
mill. A financing plan will be
presented in due course.

Can't Meet Baltic Lumber Prices
British Columbia lumbermen have
not been doing too badly in the
British market for the past two
years, and the new Ottawa trade
treaties allow considerable advantage to lumber products from Empire countries in that market. It
is, however, too much to expect a
rate that would tremendously expand our exports to the United
Kingdom without being unduly onerous to the British timber interests.
For instance, Britain is importing
lumber from the Baltic countries,
not including Russia, at a price
lower than the cost of transportation
from British Columbia ports to the
United Kingdom. The imports of
Russian lumber although we have
no information, are altogether likely
on a barter basis, and by that much
are a stimulus to the export of
British" manufactures to Russia.

Empress of Britain as Floating Pay Station.
Madeira got a new thrill recently when telephone
communication was established between that
pleasant island and London, England for the first
The occasion was the arrival of the Canadian
Pacific liner Empress of Britain at Funchal on a
cruise around the world. This magnificent new liner
has the most powerful ship-to-shore telephone
system in the wodd and Madeirans were not slow to
recognize a chance to make island history.
During her stay there, lying at anchor just beyond
the famous Loo Rock, the Empress was host to many
visitors. Amongst these were two who casually
asked, "May I use the 'phone?"
Just as casually the telephone operator of the ship
called up London and put the callers through over
1,823 miles of water.
Reports from the Empress of Britain, now at
Colombo, Ceylon, indicate that the wireless telephone
is a popular feature of the ship. The longest distance
yet reported is Haifa, Palestine, to Montreal. The
liner works on a daily schedule with Canada, through
the Canadian Marconi stations at Yamachiehe and
Drummondville, Quebec, and the Bell long distance
board in Montreal.

Loo Rock in the foreground, and a typical bedroom

33,117,314 Pieces is Long Laundry List
Can you Imagine a bewildered
Chinaman trying to total a
laundry list of 33,117,314 pieces?
But there Is one like that. It Is
the total of washing done-
by and for the Canadian
Pacific Railway Company in 1930, in Canada,
Including hotels and bungalow - camps; sleeping
and dining car service,
(which also operates station restaurants), and
the British Columbia
Coast boat service. If
one stopped to sit down
and- figure out the gallons of water and bars
of soap required for these
operations, the results
might be even more astounding.
The hotel, department
owns 789,821 pieces of
linen; the dining and
sleeping car, service
some 1,500,000 and the
British Columbia steamships another, 247,000,
making a grand total of,
2,536,821 pieces. These
include all "flat-pieces",
such as table - cloths,
sheets, napkins, towels,
pillow-cases, etc; the
white coats worn by the
company's   servants   In
the various departments, and, in
the hotels, a certain amount of
laundry, done for guests. In the
hotels, too, blankets, bed-spreads,
rugs, and so forth must
be considered. Every
piece of laundry handled
becomes a laundry-piece
each time it appears in
the wash. Thus a single
table-napkis may be a
laundry-piece over and
ovier again, according to
the supply of linen needed and available.
The picture shows a
battery of washing machines ln tbe laundry of
the Royal York Hotel,
Toronto, the largest hotel ln the British Empire.
Similar equipment in the
great chain of Canadian
Pacific Railway hotels
throughout Canada handles the great laundry
list in various centres,
with the assistance, in
certain districts, ot laundries outside the com-
pony's service. But the
Standard maintained is
the same everywhere,
immaculate cleanliness
being the motto from
coast to coast, both
ashore and afloat

are brought together to head the
greatest cast in years in a drama of
romance and thrills which will possibly never be equalled. This picture, directed by George Hill, who
made "The Big House", took one
year to make. It is full of laughs,
love, action, and tragedy. You

mystery drama is centred about a
famous old metropolitan hotel on
the eve of the day it is to be given
over to the wreckers. The plot
concerns a wallet, that contains
8100,000, and the interests of three
different factions in the recovery of
the wallet. An ex-convict, a gang
of crooks, a beautiful girl accomplice, supply the complications.
Tragedy is narrowly averted as the

A jithropologiBts in Canada are
** all excited over the discovery
during the construction of the
Royal York Golf course, Toronto,
bf a finely preserved bronze axe
head, still capable of doing hefty
work in the hands of a determined
man. Some believe that it is an
Indian implement, but many more
Bay it is an authentic relic of the
Bronze Age, perhaps a score of
thousand yean old and going back
to the dim beginnings of humanity.
Beautifully balanced and still quite
sharp, the years have left their
traces on the axe and there are
even to be seen markings where
leather strips bound it to the handle. Within sight of a great city
where once Indians prowled and
long centuries before them, primitive men fought with monsters, the
place where it was picked up will
soon be the scene of golfers teeing
off or negotiating difficult bunkers. The course will be open for
play next Spring.
Operations at the Premier mine,
Stewart will not be affected if the
Smelter at Tacoma is foroed to
close through loss of concentrates
from Britanna. At present the
Premier Co. ships 4,000 tons of ore
monthly to Tacoma and 2,000 tons
to Anyox. In addition 1,500 tons
of concentrates are shipped each
month to Tacoma and Selby
Iu the event of the closing of the
Tacoma smelter it is very probable
that Premier would increase its
milling capacity and mill ore now
shipped to Tacoma.
That there is no indication of
closing the Premier, as recently reported from Stewart, is evidenced
by the fact that the Premier Co
has placed an order for 23 miles of
three-quarter inch cable to replace
the wire rope on the aerial tram-
