[wimmer Loses Life In
Isaacs Creek
Ferdinand Noe, an employee at
he Hidden Creek Mine, lost his
[ife while swimming near Isaacs
fcreek on Saturday afternoon last.
INoe was apparently taken with the
cramps and went down before any-
ione could reach him. His body
was recovered at 9.30 on Saturday
night by Constable Service. Born
in 1901 in Baden, Germany, Noe
served as an officer in the German
army during the war. Accidental
death from drowning was the verdict at the enquiry held on Monday.
Deceased was buried at the Anyox
cemetery on Monday afternoon.
New Playground At Mine Is
Appreciated
Fitted with a regulation size
goal-post for football practice, the
new playground at the Mine is already working overtime. The footballers quickly realized the advantage of having a ground right at
their own door. The ground is
also being used to practice running
and other sports. A business-like
roller stands all ready for use so
that the ground is kept in good
shape. It has leaked out also that
a S-hole golf course at the Mine is
projected.
Johnny Chenoski Met
Death While Logging
John Chenoski, who reoently lost
his life at Komeleon Inlet, about
twenty miles south of Prinoe Ru-
pert,iwns well known in Anyox,
having resided here for several
years. He was especially active in
athletic circles and his untimely
death is deeply deplored by his
many friends.
He was employed in a logging
camp at the time of his death. He
was caught by a log and his neck
was broken. Deceased was only
23 years of age, and had lived in
Prince Rupert since he was a boy.
He leaves to mourn his loss a father
and mother and several brothers
and sisters of Prince Rupert, and a
brother, M. Chenoski of Anyox.
The funeral was held at Prince
Rupert on June 19th. and a large
number of relatives and friends
attended the ceremony.
Mine Athletes Training For
Sports Events
With their usual thoroughness,
the men at the Hidden Creek Mine
are getting into shape to capture
the first prizes at the forthcoming
Sports. Putting the-shot, for instance. Also marathon running.
High jumping, too, has its aspir
ants. Training for these events is
iu full swing-
In the early hours of Monday
morning a violent storm broke over
Anyox. Heavy rain fell and deluged the streets, and vivid lightning accompanied by tremendous
bursts of thunder prevailed for almost half au hour.
BIRTH AT ANYOX
Born to Mr. and Mrs. D. Sor-
rienti, at Anyox General Hospital,
June 17th, a son.
CARD OF THANKS
M. Chenoski extends sincere
thanks to his many friends in the

was accidentally killed at Porcher
Island. Mr. and Mrs. Chenoski
left for Prince Rupert last Friday,
to attend the funeral.
Evening Servioe will be held at

A. Rix will be present and will
conduct a confirmation service and
also consecrate the new Church.
All Ready For July 1st.
Celebration
Fine weather is the only thing
necessary to ensure the success of
the big Dominion Day celebration
next Wednesday. ' The Anyox
Community League have done
everything possible for everyone to
spend an enjoyable, day. It now
remains for everyone to enter
wholeheartedly into the spirit of
the occasion and help to celebrate
the anniversary of the confederation of the provinces of the Dominion. ;
Don't forget the big parade
forms at 9 a.m., and from that
hour the time will be fully taken
up with sports throughout the
day, followed by a big dance in the
evening.
Mine Win From Celts
In Close Game
Playing a forceful, aggressive
game, the Mine secured a win over
the Celts on Thursday the 18th.
Jimmy Dixon notched the only goal
of the game from a nice pass by
Ivor Davies in the first half. The
games was interesting to watch:
For the Celts, Williams came close
to scoring once or twice, and Mc
Coll sent in a hot shot right across
the goal mouth which missed by
inches; on the other hand the Mine
were unlucky in not adding to their
score. Dick Lavery was a very
satisfactory referee.
A big crowd of fans attended this
game.
Celts and Smelter Draw In
Tame Game
The game on Tuesday the 16th
between the Celts and the Smelter
was unsatisfactory and disappointing. A persistent and annoying
wind did not help matters. The
Smelter, fielding a fine team, played uphill and against the wind first
half, but shortly after the start
Buntain headed the ball through.
From then on until well in the
second half the game was a mix
ture of errors and futile kicking
until finally, after several attacks
on the Smelter goal, Jaok McColl
equalized. Soon after this a penalty—whioh was obviously doubtful—was awarded the Smelter, and
Musser gave the fans a thrill by
saving it, This ended the business
for the day.
Stewart and Hyder Will
Hold Big Celebration
The towns of Stewart, B. C. and
Hyder, Alaska will hold a big celebration on July 18 19 and 20. This
joint celebration will be the biggest
ever held at the head of Portland
Canal.
Not a dull minute will be allowed
the celebrants. Sports of all kinds
tave been planned, including pack
horse and ohariot races, rock drilling, mucking and ore tramming
contests, boxing and wrestling,
firework's display, and two dances,
one at Stewart on Saturday night,
and tbe other at Hyder on Sunday
night.
The United States Battleship
Detroit will visit Hyder during the
celebration and members of the
crew will compete for honors with
the landsmen in the sports arena.
Former Anyox People Wed
At Victoria
A ceremony of interest to many
Anyox people took .plaoe at St<
Matthias Church, Viotoria, B. C.
on June 6th, when Miss Evelyn
M. Patrick, daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. K. S. Patriok of Victoria, was
united-in marriage to Mr. L. A.
Goedbloed. Miss Patrick was
formerly on the Hospital Staff at
Anyox and Mr. Goedbloed held an
assayers position at the Smelter.
The happy couple will reside in
Vanoouver.

Preliminary Steps For Trade
Census Taken
The (ifteen thousand enumerators who have heen engaged since
June 1st. in taking the Population
Census have also been making a
record of the name and address of
every retail and wholesale estab
lishment in the Dominion. These
names are to be the basis for the
Postal Census of Merchandising
and Service Establishments.

the lists are in the hands of the
Officials in the Dominion Bureau
of Statistics. When they have
been carefully scrutinized and certain other preliminary work done,
schedules will be mailed to each
retail or wholesale establishment;
It is expected that somewhere between 150,000 and 200,000 names
will be reoeived and. though a very
great amount of preparatory work
is necessary before schedules dan
be mailed, is is expected that they
will be sent out in August. ■

Percentage of Mines
Rather Small
The activities of the Consolidated
Mining and Smelting Company in
search of new properties last year
was quite extensive, some 452 properties in all being reported on. Of
these 188 were in British Columbia,
others ranged from the Yukon to
Newfoundland, while 43 were in
the United States and Alaska and
16 in South Africa. Out of all
these exami nutations options were
taken on sixteen, and out of the
sixteen, only two were continued,
according to the report of Mr. W.

Signalling Trains Through New Quebec Tunnel
Uii
Through a mile-long
tunnel, under the
historic Plains of Abraham, where Wolfe defeated Montcalm and
won Quebec and Canada for Britain in
1759, passengers from
the Canadian Pacific
Railway Company's
palatial White Empresses make their first
entry into Canada,
from the Wolfe's Cove
docks, joining the main
line of the world's
greatest transportation system at St.
Malo, thus saving a
long trip through local
terminals and speeding up their journey to
Montreal and their
respective destinations
beyond. The signal
system in connection with the new tunnel is of particular interest, for it not only handles
trains through the tunnel and on to the main line, but covers tramline and railway crossings which are made on the way to the tunnel mouth at the land end. A signal cabin on
the main line, at the outskirts of the city, houses the control system. The operator faces
a board, shown in the top picture, which consists of a number of electric levers for
opening and closing switches and also has 20 rotary buttons, for operating the lights of
a like number of signals at various points on the trackage covered. By the Bame Doard,
the operator is able to locate his train or trains at any moment. It will be noted that the
control board is practically a map of the tunnel trackB, the numbers on it corresponding
to those on the Blgnal posts. The line running down the board is the tunnel and the
lines across the top of it represent the tracks of the mainline. The signals to engineers
from the posts are made by means of red, yellow and green lights, indicating "stop",
/'caution" and "proceed", respectively. The system was
supplied by the General Railway Signal Company, and installed by the C. P. R's signal
         ^____„ forces.

"The train ride from Vancouver
to Banff is the most wonderful I
have ever' taken," was the comment of the much-travelled and
famous writer J. B. Priestley, of
"Angel Pavement" and "The Good
Companions" fame, interviewed
recently at the Banff Springs
Hotel. "These parts are too
wonderful to describe," he said,
and added he was coming again
in September for the trail riding.
Judge: "The traffic officer says
you got sarcastic wit.h him.''
Mr. Nagger: "But I didn't intend to be. He talked to me like
my wife does, and I forgot myself
and answered, Yes, my dear."
