Anyox  Defeat  Prince
Rupert In Championship Games
Prince Rupert is out of the picture for the Northern B. C. Basket-
hall Championship, through bsing
both games against Anyox on their
visit on Friday and Saturday
March 23rd. and 24th. The smelter town quintette outplayed the
C. N. R. aggregation in the second
game 34-29. It was without doubt
the finest exhibition of basketball
seen on the local floor, and provided
thrill after thrill for a packed house.
Rupert opened the scoring with
brilliant play and appeared, to have
the local squad outdone in speed
and passing ability. Stiles, the
visitors' forward, played brilliant
ball, while F. Calderoni, star shooter for Anyox, was being too closely
watched to do business. His brother Tony opened the account with a
beautiful one-hand shot and the
game was going. Swanson, Anyox
captain, got the second with a
spectacular run. Rupert continued
their clever play and led at the
interval 19-17.
On changing ends Anyox acquired more speed and confidence and
soon changed the figures on the
score board, with Calderoni locating the net better and Swanson
playing in masterly style.
For Rupert, Santurbane . was
playing a whirlwind game and
Stiles was at top form, but they
could not catch up on the several
points lead established by Anyox.
Another lovely one-hand shot by
Tony Calderoni brought the fans to
their feet. Stiles was top scorer
with twelve points, his clean-cut
penalty shots were a treat to watch
only one out of seven being missed.
Within a few minutes of the close
Swanson and F. Calderoni were
despatched to the showers for per
son ah. Norton Youngs was a
capable referee for both games.
The teams: Rupert C. N R„ W.

Anyox   Has  Empire's Most
Westerly Golf Course
There is a controversary
raging on Vancouver Island
as to the most westerly golf
course in the British Empire.
The following item is taken
from The Comox Argus:
"The most westerly golf
course in the British Empire—
which is it? Sandwick seemed to be secure in the honor
last week when it was pointed
out that Port Alberni was east
of Courtney but now here
comes Port Alice to tee off.
In the last issue of MacLean's
Magazine a reader from the
pulp town on Quatsino Sound
says that there is a nine hole
golf course there and there is
no doubt that it is nearer Japan than its rivals. But what
about Prince Rupert: has it a
golf course?"
Prince Rupert hasn't,, but
the one town with a golf
course that all have overlooked, is Anyox, which has the
most northerly course on the
B. C. coast and the most
westerly in the Empire.

Sun Life Co. Donates
Basketball Trophy
Through the courtesy of their
Northern representative, Mr. Sam
Jabour, the Sun Life Assurance
Co. has donated a handsome trophy
oup emblematic of the basketball
championship of Northern British
Columbia. This cup will be competed for yearly. Trustees have
been appointed who will also comprise a standing permanent committee in charge of arrangements
for play-offs etc.
The trustees are W. Lambie,
Prince Rupert; N. T. Youngs.
Anyox, Brad Watson, Premier.
Mr. Jabour will act as chairman of
the committee. The generosity
of the Sun Life Company at this
time gives a new filip to the game
and to the many basketball fans of
the north, who have long felt that
with the many splendid teams in
the district, a northern B. C.
championship was justified and
should be perpetuated.
Hilarious Farce To Be
Given April 9th.
Side-splitting situations arise in
the humorous play which is to be
presented by the ladies of the United Church on Monday, April 9th.
in the Recreation Hall. The title
of this faroial production is: "It's
a Ming" and centres round a more
or less valuable Ming vase, which
is sold by auction. The scene is
laid in a girls' college, the students
at whioh arrange an auction in
order to raise funds. One article
to be offered is a vase given to one
of the girls-by an aunt. It transpires that this vase is taken to be
a missing Tao masterpiece of the
Ming period and from this point on
the fun is fast and furious, with a
lady reporter and a "tough character" named Mingo Lil being involved.
The ladies have spent much time
preparing for this play and patrons
will no doubt be highly entertained. It is possible that a matinee
will be given on Friday, April 6th.
iu addition to the performance on
Monday the 9th.
Atlin Gets $15,000 For

against the Mechanics in the finals
of the play-offs for the Senior
B League Championship. The
games were played as preliminaries

Annual Report Premier
Co. Shows Good Profit
During 1933
The annual report of the Premier
Gold Mining Co. Ltd., which was
recently issued, states that Premier
earnings in 1933 were $934,235,
before administration, taxes, depreciation and depletion. This
compares with $1,095,962 in 1932,
a decrease of 8161,726. Mr. H. A.
Guess, managing; director, explains
that exhaustion of ores of direct
shipping grade would without other
offsets have caused a much greater
drop in profits for 1933. The offsets were the higher price of gold
and silver, an increase of about
23,000 tons in ore milled, an improvement in ratio of concentration

Give Me the Tin
with the Gold Cow"
EVEN the children know the fresh creamy flavor of Borden's
St. Charles Milk—in the tin with the Gold Cow Label.
Particular cooks find it the most economical way to put "creami-
ness" in soups, creamed vegetables, puddings and cakes. They
know definitely there is no other way to put such good flavor in
cooking at so low a cost.
Borden's St. Charles is fresh, full-cream milk evaporated to
double richness. From this smooth, concentrated milk you can
work up favorite recipes to much finer flavor.
Try the St. Charles way to better cooking. You will never be
without it again when you see for yourself the delightful food it
will help you to prepare.
It's better and you can prove it!
3 Tests Prove It Better
Try this: Open ■ cm of St. Charles Evaporated Milk. Note the creamy color—the
pleasant odor—the rich, creamy, smooth
consistency—the pure, fresh fiavorl
Try this: Make cream sauce with St. Charles
Evaporated  Milk—or a dish of mashed

Visiting Anyox on Monday last
for a friendly encounter at basketball, two teams from Kincolith lost
to selected quintettes from the local
ranks. Teams from Kincolith B
and Anyox B players first took the
floor, the visitors being practically
snowed under with a score of 32 to
4. The local lads were altogether
too fast for their opponents, who
nevertheless put up a plucky fight
until the final whistle. Kincolith

A much better tussle was witnessed in the senior game, the
Anyox all-stars taking the floor
and being held down to a 37-19
score. The visitors showed lots of
speed and clever passing, but the
size of the hall and other conditions
to which they were unaccustomed,
no doubt affected their play. Peter

good cards, while for the home boys

23rd. at the half-time intervals of
the basketball games. The new
game is known as scooter polo, and
the boys playing it use their scooters
and propel a ball along the floor
with a wooden mallet. Goal
"posts" are chalked at the ends of
the hall and five boys compose a
team. Two different teams took
the floor each interval, the opposing
teams being distinguished by red
or blue sashes. The game served
the excellent purpose of filling in
the tedious ten minute intervals at
half-time in the basketball games
and the boys showed good skill in
shooting and guarding. The sport
will probably be fostered by those
who have originated it here. Ross
Oatman, on roller skates, refereed
these games.
J. A. Anderson, who for over
five years has held the position of
Superintendent of Public Works
for the Atlin Constituency, has received notice that his services will
be shortly dispensed with. At the
present time, a successor has not
been named. Due to the necessity
of stringent economy on the part
of the government it is possible
that the position will be abolished.

up story writing as a career?'

"Yes; my watch, my saxophone

"Eloped with your wife;"
"No, with our cook, and  now
my wife does the cooking."

Anyox Outshine Rupert
In First Game
As far as actual scoring' went,
Friday's game against the C. N. R.
team from Rupert was won by
Anyox at the start and finish of the
tussle. About fifty shots in the
middle of the game were fruitless.
Rupert's best players took the floor,
and a packed house witnessed one
of the fastest and cleverest arguments ever carried out on the local
floor. Although the home boys
missed many .shots, the visitors
were almost as unlucky, due no
doubt to unfamiiiarity with the baskets. Speed and resourcefulness
won the game for Anyox, as they
had to combat some very close
checking. The visitors gave a fine
exhibition of passing, working the
ball up to the basket and managing
to keep up within two or three
points for quite a distance. A few
minutes before the close they lost
Stiles on personals, this rangy
forward having played a sterling
game and notching eleven points.
At half-time Anyox led 20 to 14,
Rupert creeping up to within two
points later, only to drop away
shortly afterwards. The Calderoni
boys starred for Anyox, Fred getting sixteen points and Tony ten.
Three of the baskets by the latter
provided real thrills for the fans.
Swanson played brilliantly and had
bad luck in not making a higher
score, while Jimmy Currie was a
tower of strength at guard. For
the visitors Lambie and Eddie
Smith played a great game, while
Santerbane had the wrigglingpo wers
of an eel. Norton Youngs capably
controlled the game. The teams:

Stewart Railway Charter
Is Rejected
The charter of the Canadian
North Eastern Railway Company to
build a line from Stewart through
the northern interior to the rich
mineral areas of Fort Grahame,
was rejected by the private bills
committee of the Legislature last
The charter, originally granted
in 1909, by a curious coincidence
lapsed on April 20th. and the committee decided not to revive it.
The vote on this vital issue was
five to four against the extension of
the charter of the railway company,
which is owned by the Consolidated
Mining & Smelting Company.
J. B. Clearihue, counsel for the
railway company, announced that
he would seek the reopening of the
question in the Legislature.
The rejection of the charter followed a fierce attack on it by Hon.
H. G. Perry and E. T. Kenny, and
at the morning sitting by G. G.
McGeer, K. C. They declared
that the charter represented an attempt by the Canadian Pacific Rail-
wayto blanket the northern half of
British Columbia with a railway,
charter which would ruin the future
prospects of the Pacific Great Eastern line.
It was reported among Liberal
members that the government
might propose a compromise whereby the company would be given a
year instead of five to start construction of its proposed railway.
