Alice   Arm   Receives
Donation For Relief
Work
In the elimination dance Miss
Brownlee Flye and Mr. Freddie
Gordon were the winners.
In the Lucky Tennis ball dance,
Miss Kathleen Eve was the winner.
The Committee who were in
charge of the arrangements are to
be complimented on the fine way
in which they put the dance over.
Everything went along like
clock-work without a hitoh any-
vhere.
In order to take care of the unemployment problem during the
coming winter, so that no one will
suffer severe hardship the sum of
$15,000 has been appropriated by
the Provincial Government for the
Atlin riding, states J- A. Anderson, district road superintendent,
who was a visitor to Alice Arm
last week-end.
Of this sum between $4,000 and
$5,000 will be spent in the Alice
Arm distriot, and the balance at
Stewart and Telegraph Creek.
The work to be undertaken in
connection with the appropriation
is the strengthening and extending
of the wing dam above the town,
and work has already commenced
with a small crew.
From nine to ten men will be
employed. Married men with
families, will be employed continuously, while others will work
every two weeks.
The wing dam, which protects
the town of Alice Arm from the
flood waters of the Kitsault River
is in urgent need of repairs, and
it is very satisfying to learn that
this work will be accomplished.
Each year the main stream swings
more towards the west part of the
dam, and at present the main
current strikes the dam with full
force.
The policy of the Provincial
Government when making appro,
priations in connection with relief
work was that necessary work
would be accomplished, and this
policy is being carried out.

Celts, Smelter and Blossoms Win in Monday's
Game *
On Monday evening, the Anyox
basbetball teams played the second
games in their respective leagues.
Three good games were played.
The Celts were the only team to
repeat their win of the first night,
although they played a more ragged game than in their first encounter. However, in spite of tlieir
many mistakes th6y filially nosed
out the Micos by a score of 18 to
15. It was a ding-dong battle
from the start. The lead swinging
from one team to the other and
was an exciting game throughout.
For the winners, McDonald with
6 and Hill with 7 points were the
heavy scorers. For the Micos
Dodd and Dwyer begged 6 points
each.
Micos: Dodd-6, Cloke, F. Anderson-3, Dwyer-6, O'Neill, Deeth,
G. Anderson.    Total IS.
Celts: J. Davis, T. Calderoni-5,
Hill-7, McDonald-6, Dodsworth,
Patrick, McRostie.    Total 18.
In the Senior B game the Smelter took sweet revenge from the
Orphans, who looked just that iu
this game. The Smelter improved
greatly over their first appearance,
and were in good trim for their
win, but the score of 21 to 4 does
not indicate the hard battle put up
by the Orphans who had some very
hard luck in their shooting. The
chief trouble with the Orphans was
their lack of effective combination.
In Ellison, Pinckney, and Ion,
the Smelter have a forward line
that will show some real skill
before the season is far advanced.
Smelter: Ellison-9, Ion-4, Pinck-
ney-8,' Kirby, Taylor, Archer.
Total 21.
Orphans: Horner-2, Ridley, Elliott, Field-2, Karen.
In the Intermediate league the
Blossoms trimmed the Buds in fine
style to even up the score at one
pame each. For the Buds, H.
Dresser, Freddie Gordon, and Bud
Gillies were the outstanding players. For the Blossoms, Calderoni
and A. Dodsworth were the pick
of the team. The final score was
16-3 for the Blossoms.
Buds: J. Dodsworth-1, D. O'Neill, H. Dresser-2, B. Gillies, F.
Gordon, D. McDonald.   Total 3.
Blossoms: T. Scott, W. Dunn,
A. Dodsworth-6, F. Calderoni-7,

E. MOSS, Editor and Publisher.
The B. C. Products Bureau of
the Vancouver Board of Trade,
are conducting an advertising campaign throughout the province,
showing the advantages attained
by buying, whenever possible,
goods produced in British Columbia. The Federal Government is
also contemplating a similar campaign advising everyone to purchase Canadian made goods in
preference to foreign. When
making purchases of any kind we
should endeavor to remember that
when we buy a foreign made
article that the money we spend
leaves the country. It goes to
some foreign land, giving employment to foreign labor, thus creating
unemployment at home. To many
of us bewail the hard times with
its resultant armies of unemployed,
but fail to demand Canadian made
goods in preference to foreign.
Let us keep our money in the province if possible by buying B. C.
products, and failing that buy Canadian made goods.
For the first time in history, relief work for the unemployed is
being distributed throughout the
entire province. Every small town
where an unemployment problem
exists has been given assistance by
the Provincial Government. In
former limes relief work was only
obtainable in the big cities and
those in small towns were forced
to practically starve or incur debts
that swallowed up the next summer's earnings. The Provincial
Government is making an earnest
effort to alleviate any suffering this
winter by providing employment.
It is fully alive to its responsibilities,
as is also the Federal Government,
and their quick action to meet any
emergency will be appreciated by
many before the coming winter is
passed out.
Canada Increasing Gold
Output
Ottawa, October 25; (Special to
the Herald) North America is,
next to Africa, the chief gold-producing continent, usually contributing about one-quarter of the
world's annual gold output. Within, the past decade North American
production has rather more than
held its own, but this showing has
been due entirely to the fact that
Canada's rising output has been
sufficient to offset the decline in
the United States and Mexico.
Ten years ago the gold output of
the United States was three times
as great as that of the Dominion.
Do You Know That:
That advertising has the power
of suggestion, which creates a
desire to possess.
Continuous advertising is the
most effective kind.
Continuous advertising causes
readers to form a friendly feeling
towards the concerns advertising
and makes customers and prospective customers realize that only the
best in quality is continuously
advertised.
Persistency in advertising is unquestionably the greatest force in
the building of business. It increases turnover and breaks down
sales resistance.
Truthful advertising of quality
means satisfied customers. It is
building better business everywhere
for those who use its aid.
Advertising is the magnet that
attracts the attention of all. It
reminds the people of everything
they need.
Business concerns who handle
well advertised lines and back them
up with local advertising are the
ones who profit most.
Only the concerns who are continuous advertisers can successfully
survive competition.
Business men who do not believe
in advertising are just sleeping,
while local competitors, neighboring
cities, door to door peddlers and
mail order houses are getting the
business they should get.

Hon. C. A Dunning, former federal minister of finance, has accepted the position of vice-president

Consumption ot gasoline In Canada Increased 643 per cent, from
1920 to 1929 and In the same period the use of fuel and gas oils
advanced 138 per cent. The wider
use of motor cars, farm tractors
and other agricultural machinery
is given as the reason for the
great increase in the use of gasoline and the growing popularity in
the use of oil for heating purposes
accounts for the advance in the
consumption of fuel and gas oils.
An impressive march past of
over 9,000 sockeye salmon was
seen this summer at Stamp River
Falls, B.C. The fish took from
June 11 to July 20 to pass the
falls by aid of the fishway constructed by the Canadian Government Department of Fisheries. A
count of the fish was made at the
falls during ten hours of «iach day
in the six week period. As compared with the previous ye^r there
was a larg3 increase, 9,061 against
8,512.
Five per cent seems a pitifully
small return on your money until
you've tried to get ten per cent and
lost your principal.

"The reason why Interference by
the government In business, or
worse, the active engagement by
tbe government tn business, is
harmful, is because It is not accompanied by efficiency, and inevitably, means waste and Increased taxation," was one of the outstanding statements made by E. W.
Beatty, chairman and president of
the Canadian Pacific Railway, in
an address at the annual dinner of
the Canadian Chambers of Commerce held at Toronto recently. It
was, he thought, a dangerous tendency and one that should becom-
batted by Canadian and American
business men. i
There are at present ln

miles of rural roads, of which
6,316 miles are first-class roads,

of roads in the province or about
41 per cent, are permanently Improved und surfaced with either
concrete, macadam or gravel.

Championship Fish from Ontario Waters
Results are out for the three major fishing competitions held in Ontario each year at French Elver,
Nipigon River and Devil's Gap Bungalow Camps, all
three contests being sponsored and trophies awarded
by the Canadian Pacific Railway Company.
They were: a 49 H inch muskalunge taken from the
French River by F. R. Spotts, of Houston, Texas,
weight, 35 pounds, seven ounces, girth, 25 inches. It
took nearly three-quarters of an hour to land this
beauty. A six pound speckled brook trout from the
Nipigon River caught by Edward Pohlman, of East
St. Louis, 111., 2214 inches long and 14 inches in girth.
A black bass from the Devil's Gap Bungalow Camp,
Lake of the Woods, four pounds, 1H ounces in weight,
just over 21 inches long and K% inches in girth. It fell
to the rod of J. C. Jones, of St. Louis, Mo. Each winner
was awarded a framed certificate signed by the judges
of the contest and were also given gold lapel buttons.
Fishing was exceptionally good this year in these
sections and the winners were up against the stiffest
kind of competition. •

THE GIANT AND THE DWARF
ivewhadowed by the tons of gteel making up the
monster that has succeeded it, "Curly," as the
engine is still affectionately known among veteran
railwaymen, standi alongside a modern Canadian
Pacific locomotive and measures only as long as the
latter's cab and tender. Nevertheless, "Curly", tiny,
lofty-funnelled wood-burner of pioneer days, can
claim a record seldom approached anywhere in the
world for long life, usefulness and endurance.
"Curly" was brought to British Columbia in 1871
and W. H. (Bill) Evans (inset), engineer of the
first Canadian Pacific passenger train to reach Port
Moody in 1886, says it was built in a San Francisco
machine shop and later aided Count de Lesseps in
the Panama Canal region, not to mention construction
work in Peru. Sixty years of arduous work left
their mark on "Curly", but now the engine after a
thorough refitting at the Canadian Pacific Vancouver
shops, is to be exhibited at the Vancouver Exhibition
in August, as a museum piece of the early days.
Bill Evans was called out of retirement for purposes of this picture and gladly donned the old overalls again to show himself once more in haraMa
alongside "Curiey". >

Enthusiasm Prevails At
Basketball Opening
Night
Continued from page 1
24th.
A large crowd was on hand for
an event of this kind, and four
games were played, one in each of
the four leagues in operation this
season.
The teams naturally were not
quite up to scratch in form, but
it will be only a matter of time and
practice before some real hot basketball will be dished up to the
fans, and it is hoped that they
will continue to turn out the same
good numbers throughout the
season as they did on the opening
night.
The flrst game brought together
the Buds and the Blossoms of the
intermediate league. The Buds
finally emerged victorious with the
score of 8 to 2 in their favor.
However, although the Buds deserved to win the score does not
indicate the closeness of the play,
as the Blossoms had some very
tough luck with their shooting at
times. One of the features of this
game was the good all-round display of basketball by the midgets
of their respective teams, these
were Dresser for the Buds, and
Scott for the Blossoms. These
boys should be real stars before
many moons pass over their heads.
Bud Gillies and Freddy Gordon
were the big noises for their team,
each collecting half of their team's
score. Calderoni got the only bas
ket for the Blossoms.
Blossoms: Scott, Deeth, A. Dodsworth, Garvey, Calderoni 2, Dunn.
Total 2.
Buds: J. Dodsworth, A. Dresser,
Gillies 4. Gordon 4, McDonald.—
Total 8.
The Orphans and the Smelter
teams put on a very spirited battle,
although it was quite a revelation
to some of the fans as to what could
be done under the name of basketball. However, for all their lack
of experience, these teams appear
to be very eveuly matched, and
with a little proper coaching and
practice they should put on some
real games before the season is
over.
Orphans: Field-2, Elliott-4, Hor-
ner-2, McColl-2, Ridley, Karen.
Total 10.
Smelter: Walters, Pinckney,
Ion-1, Dixon-2, Ellison-4, Archer.
Total 7.
The Ladies' Senior A game was
somewhat disappointing, as it was
seen that the Pats had it over the
High School girls like a circus
tent, right from the start. The
big trouble with the High School
team being that they apparently
have too many players, and it was
not until the game was lost that
they managed to work out their
strongest combination.
Pats: H. Calderoni-5, Mrs. Carrick, M. McRostie-7, J. McDonald-
7, K. Eve-2, T. Gordon.   Total 21.
High School: P. Loudon, L.

Yukon Shipping Much
Silver Ore
Ottawa—Despite heavy trans
portation costs, silver ore and concentrates to the extent of approximately 10,000 tons has been shipped out of the Yukon during the
present summer according to
George I. McLean, gold commissioner to the Yukon, who has returned to Ottawa after a two and
a half year sojourn in the north
country. So great is the shipping
cost that silver ore of less value
than $100 per ton cannot be sent
out and it is this lower value ore
from which concentrates are made
The silver production in the Yukon, Mr. MacLean declared, was
practically five times as great as
the gold production, which amounted to loss than one million dollars
per year. Silver production reaches
about $4,000,000 yer year.

enced opponents, the Sheiks. The
Celts put on the only real exhibition of basketball during the evening, showing fine combination and
a good understanding of basketball tactics. When these boys put
on a little more weight, and gain
some experience with outside teams
they should be able to make a good
showing in any company.
The Sheiks showed lack of practice and coaching, and were continually being checked up for steps
and other technical fouls.

WHEN BUYING COAL
■ REMEMBER -
Every ton of British Columbia coal used means employment for local miners and mine workers.
It means the maintenance of more homes in the Province.
It means the continued local circulation of funds which
otherwise would leave the Province.
It means, if every B. C. user of coal will use looal coal,
that the Vancouver Island, Nicola-Princeton, and Crow's
Nest Pass coal fields, whose coal workers have been struggling on half time or less for months, again will be favored
with prosperous conditions.
For these reasons British Columbians should oonsider
carefully the source of the coal which fills their bins this
winter.
