Keep Our Money And
Raw Material At Home
Says Bennett
Conservative Leader Gives
Stirring Speech at Anyox
For almost one and a half hours
Hon. R. B. Bennett, leader of the
opposition in the House of Commons, expounded the gospel of
Catittdianism to a large audience at
the Recreation Hall Anyox, Friday
Mr. Bennett proved to be a forcible speaker. He is a fast talker
and touched upon almost every
topic that is of interest to Canadians.
His speech was chiefly in connection
with the tariff laws, and he drove
home point after point in order to
convince his audience that future
prosperity lies in keeping the Canadian dollar at home instead of
sending it abroad.
Although the hall was well filled,
many more would have been present
but for the late arrival of the speakers. The delay was due to a breakdown of the launch upon which they
were travelling and they did not
arrive until 9 p.m. Miss Bennett,
Sir George Perley and Lady Perley,
and General A. D. McRae stayed
in Prince Rupert owing to the
break-down. Mr. Bennett was accompanied by J. C. Brady, M. P.
for Skeena,
Dr. D. R. Learoyd was chairman
of the meeting. In a few well
chosen remarks he introduced the
speakers and welcomed them to
The first speaker was J. C. Brady.
In his usual breezy Irish manner he
gave an outline of his leader, R. B.
Bennett, and convinced his audience
that the affairs of the Conservative
party of Canada could not be handled
by a more experienced and efficient
man than the Honorable R. B.
Mr. Brady made a plea for a
spirit of greater Canadianism. He
stated that Canada is not receiving
the full benefits of her natural resources. Our raw products are
being shipped abroad, he said, for
the benefit of foreign countries.
He said that Canada exceeded the
United States in size by 60,000
square miles. We also exceed in
forests, mineral and other wealth.
Why then, he said, do we see stagnation in many parts, and why do
our boys and girls continually cross
the boundary to make their home in
the United States. There is something wrong with the policy of the
I' government of the past seven years
or such things would not happen
with our unlimited resources.
Hon. R. B. Bennett was the next
speaker.   On rising he stated that
this was his first visit to the north
I coast,    He had no excuses to make
Ifor his late arrival.    He did   not
|f waste any time in handing out bou-
Fquets as to the intelligence of his
■audience etc., but plunged immedi-

Ten Feet Wide
The ore ledge at the Tiger, which
we stated in a previous issue had
been encountered in No. 3 tunnel
has been crosscut and is shown
to have a width of 10 feet. High
grade ore, comprising native and
ruhy silver was found on the hanging wall, at the completion of the
crosscut tunnel.
Mr. and Mrs. R. Bredenburg arrived from Anyox on Tuesday, and
will spend a vacation here. Mr.
Bredenburg was a former resident
of the camp.
N. Fraser, manager at the Esperanza mine left on Monday for
Prince Rupert on a business trip.
J. Calvin arrived from the south
on Monday, and while here
will do development work on
his mineral claims near the La
Rose mine.
Mrs. Peterson arrived on Monday from Prince Rupert on a visit
to her sister, Mrs. G. Anderson.
Another enjoyable dance was
held at T. W. Falconer's hall on
Saturday evening. A large number
of Anyox visitors were present, and
a pleasant evening was spent.
Mr. and Mrs. F. D. Rice arrived
on Monday from Prince Rupert
Mr. Rice will survey some mineral
claims during his stay here.
Sam Moran, an old resident of
Alice Arm and Anyox arrived in
Anyox from Prince Rupert on Friday and left the following day for
the Saddle property at Hastings
ately into matters of a political
nature. The friendly spirit between
capital and labor, such as existed in
Anyox, he said, was to a large ex>
tent, responsible for Canada's prosperity. A happy combination that
is necessary.

Silver Crest Co. Shipping
Ore From Saddle
Construction of the aerial tramway at the Saddle property on
Hastings Arm is almost completed.
The Silver Crest Mining Co. who
are developing the mine are striving
to have all outside work completed
before the snow settles on the hills.
One cable of the tramway is already strung to the mine. Material
for the mine and ore sheds etc. is
being transferred over it. A crew
of men are now busy sacking ore at
the mine, and this trial shipment is
also being taken to the beach over
the tramway.
A contract has been let for 300 ft.
of drifting. The main drift will be
extended this distance, and will be
of sufficient length to strike the rich
ore at depth that has been developed
by sinking a shaft -on the surface.
It is expected that development
work will be continued underground
throughout the winter, and that by
next spring a large tonnage of rich
ore will be available for shipment.
Public Meeting Discuss
Land Sale Problems
A public meeting was held at the
school on Tuesday evening for the
purpose of discussing any problems'
that may arise in connection with
the sale of lots by the government
of the former Indian Reserve at
Alice Arm.
After some discussion it was decided by the meeting that a telegram be sent to the Minister of
Lands, requesting him to forward
information as to whether those occupying land on the Reserve would
be given any preference when sale
was held. Also whether owners of
houses would be recompensed for
their improvements if the lot they
occupied was purchased by another.
Plans of the townsite were also requested.

The Prince Charles was held over
until 12 midnight, when the
Rupert Herd said good-bye to Anyox with regret, vowing however
that the visit would be repeated,
being high in their praise of the

Prince Rupert Elks Are
Entertained By Anyox
The Prince Rupert Elks' officers,
patrol and baseball team arrived in
town on the Catala Monday. The
party was about thirty strong. The
patrol in their uniforms of purple
and white gave several cheers as
the boat pulled into the dock. They
were met by a party of local Elks
and paraded to the Club Rooms.
The afternoon was spent in showing the visitors around the Smelter
and Concentrator. In the evening
the visitors defeated the local nine
in a nicely played ball game 4 runs
to 1. The Anyox team was a bit
shaky for the first two innings but
settled down after that. Immediate
after the ball game, a Lodge meeting was held, the visiting officers
and drill team putting on the degree
work. After the meeting a very enjoyable smoker was held in the
dugout. The visitors having lots of
musical talent with them, which
proved very entertaining to the local herd. Much was done towards
cementing the bonds of fellowship
between the two towns. The Anyox
Elks hope to return the visit some
time in the near future.
Tuesday afternoon the visitors
were taken for a trip through the
The second game of baseball
played between the Anyox and
Prince Rupert Elks' teams proved
to be one of the best games seen
here for a number of years. Both
teams played errorless ball behind
superb pitching. The score was
2 to 1 in favor of the local nine.
Three hits, all in the first inning,
was the best Anyox could do with
Haveland's shots. The visitors
nicked Lazorek four times, all of
them being for two bags. The
Anyox boys scored one in the first
frame, Allen singled down the third
base line and went to third on Oat-
man's two bagger. Whitehouse
fanned for the first out, Swanson
sent a slow roller to third, Allen
being thrown out at the plate, Oatman scored on Somerville's single.
Swanson was nipped at the plate
for the third out on a beautiful

In the evening a very enjoyable
dance was held in the Elks' Hall.
It was a huge success, a good
crowd being present, and the music
supplied by the Victor orchestra
was excellent.

Third Mining Engineer
Appointed In North
The present government is fully
alive to the necessity of building
roads in order to open up for development our vast northern undeveloped territory. They are making an earnest effort to locate a
route from Prince Rupert to Terrace. They are building a road
from Prince George north into the
Igenika country, and they are con
templating building a road from
Stewart north to Atlin. A road
from Hazelton north to Atlin
Alaska and the Yukon is also contemplated. Alice Arm may also
possibly be linked up with this interior road system within the next
few years. The map of British
Columbia is being unrolled northward. Within the next decade if
the good work is carried on, we
shall be able to point with pride to
the north, not as a land of open
spaces, but as a populous country,
filled with a hardy, industrious
Power Rate Dispute of
Granby and West
Kootenay Settled
The long-standing power rate dispute between the West Kootenay
Power and Light Company and the
Granby Consolidated Mining and
Smelting Company, which convulsed the interior last year and led to
the passage of public utility legislation at the last session of the legislature, has been finally settled.
This may foreshadow the return
of Allenby's copper concentrates to
Trail, absent since the dispute between Granby and Consolidated
reached an open break.
According to official information
received from the West Kootenay
Company, it has agreed to an entirely new toll for the Granby operations at Allenby and Copper Mountain. In place of the former scale of
charges, which was governed by
the fluctuating price of copper and
ranged from 65 hundredths of a
cent per kilowatt hour to 105 hun
dredths; a new flat rate of 58 hundredths has been established.
This rate was officially filed by
the power company with the water
board this week, and on submission
to the Gramby company was not
It is expected a similar settlement
will be reached in the dispute between the West Kootenay company
and the city of Grand Forks, which
launched the first protest against
the company's rates. The water
board thus will have no occasion
for the present to use its new powers.—The Financial News
The growing importance of the
mining industry in northern British
Columbia is so well appreciated by
the Hon. W. A. McKenzie, minister of mines, that the appointment
of another highly qualified
mining engineer for field work
was announced. F. P. Caddy, a
graduate of the Red Ruth School
of Mines, England, who has had
twenty-eight years active experience
in Egypt, South Africa, South
America, Siberia and the United
States, has been selected to assist
Dr. J. T. Mandy and Douglas Lay
the permanent engineers, whose
head-quarters are at Prince Rupert
and Hazelton, respectively. Mr
Cadcly left recently for the north.#
He will immediately place himself
at the disposal of Dr. Mandy to
assist for a month or six weeks in
inspection work which has been accumulating and which must be tak-
| en care of in the space of a comparatively short season. Thereafter it is the minister's plan that
Mr. Caddy will report to Mr. Lay
in order that he may be able to
undertake the survey of promising
mineral-bearing sections north of
the Canadian National Railway,
which Mr Lay, as a result of the
accumulation of work, has been
unable to visit personally up to
the present.
Duthie Will Not Sell Stewart

Dear Sir:
I noticed in your last week's
issue an editorial citing the happy
fact that we have escaped the usual
fire menace this year. But I wish,
through the medium of your paper,
to call the attention of the proper
authorities to the fact there exists j
a more serious menace in this fair
town of ours than any fire menace
ever could be.
I refer to the shameful condition
of the creek which flows through
the town. Many residents are using
well water for drinking purposes
here. The whole seepage underlying the town drains from the creek
to the sea.
There has been a heavier run than
usual of salmon in the creek this
year and I have observed children
young men and adults pelting these
fish with rocks. The consequence is
that the creek is one mass of dead
salmon in every state of putrefica-
tion. People drink water from wells
and pumps below this shameful
cesspool. Children in warm weather
bath and swim in this creek, which
has become a breeding place for
blow flies. I leave it to you, Mr Editor, if such an unsanitary condition
of what should be a beautiful creek
should be maintained, when a little
labor and expense might make this
stream of water a safe and pleasant
place for the children to play, instead of a disgusting sight and a
stink to high heaven.
Yours truly,
Pack Trains, Saddle Horses

Practically all of the mica produced in Canada is of the amber
variety (phlogopite). Mines in the
Ottawa region, both in Ontario and
Quebec, are the principal producers.
Of course, most of the great industrials who are busy trying to
find a means of giving their workers a five-day week, became great
industrials by working much more
than five days a week.

By virtue of two consecutive
wins over the Elks, the Mine have
clinched the league honors. On
August 2nd. they took the contest
7-2, and in the following game the
score was 4-3.
Both games wore rather loose at
times, but were productive of some
good ball. McColl on the mound
for the Elks in the first game,
pitched a nice game; allowing only
two hits, but his wildness in the
sixth, coupled with a flock of errors
proved his downfall and ruined a
good game of ball.

miners. He was nicked for six
scattered hits, and was invincible
in the pinches.
