Mr. H. J. Reade, who is one of
the directors' of the Homestake
Mining Coi arrived in Alice Arm
on Thursday to investigate the
possibility of an early resumption
of operations at the Homestake.
In an interview with the Herald
Mr. Beade stated that operations
this year' would undoubtedly be
carried on, on an extensive soale,
just how- large, he could not
at the present time say, but
definite plans for the year would
be made upon the return of Capt.
Gerhardi from London. ' English
capital is now interested in the
property, and development work
will be speeded up.
Mr. Reade, however, was certain
that mining operations would, be
. carried on within six weeks, and
that a full force would be working
1 as soon as it was possible to transport supplies to the property.
In order to facilitate the com-
iJfcncement of operations, the first
work.will be let by oontr.act. The
[No. 1 tunnel will be continued
[until the large ore body which has
[beesuencoiiintered is Oross'-Cut. The
[cross-cutting of this ore body will
[prove up an immense body of ore.
Work will then be carried oil in
[the No. 2 tunnel, until the ore body
lis also cross-cut.
At the commencement, the
Idriviug of the tunnels will be done
jby hand work, but later a com-
1 pressor will be installed.    *
The Homestake is one of the
I most promising iprpperties in the
[Kitsault Valley. The ore carries
■copper, gold and silver.
[Elk's Novelty Dance a
Great Success
On Friday, April 21st., the Elks
Iheld a dance in their Hall, at which
jthe "Brother Bills" upheld their
[reputation of always putting up
[something new and interesting.
[The novelty part was hidden
| amidst the decorations, which were
| tpy balloons each carrying a num-
Iber for a chance on a wheel of
Ifortune. By pulling a string the
Iballoons Were let loose then the
■dancers scrambled for possession
|of one. -
Then at intervals during the
evening the wheel of fortune deoid-
the winning numbers.
The lucky holders who each
leceived a box of chocolates were:

Speeches Given to Further
Interests of League
The Anyox Community League
in conjunction with the Anyox
Brass Baiid, held a smoker in the
Recreation" Hall, on Wednesday
evening. A large and valried musical programme was staged by well
known local artists, and brilliant
speeches were given by several
speakers, who gave an outline of
the activities of the League, and
dwelt upon the urgent necessity of
everyone in Anyox supporting the
In spite of the inclement weather
a large number of people were
present. The band, comprising
twenty pieces, under Jimmy Varnes
opened the programme, playing in
such a manner .that they had to
respond a second time.
Chairman Jimmy Esplin, ,in his
remarks, dealt with the A. C. L.
appeal for members', emphasising
the fact, that the Band, a worthy
organization, required more support;
arid this support would be assured
if the Community League had
every English speaking resident of
Anyox enrolled, as a member.
'.'" 'Elr.'D, It. Learoyd,. School Principal Manzer, and Jdr. T. Simpson,
all dealt enthusiastically on tho
question of a wider display-of public spirit by the people of Anyox.
The way to follow that teaching is
to become a member of the A. C.
L. thereby increasing the power of
the League, which will then be in
a position to foster the AriyOx
Baud, which is an essential institution and should hot be allowed to
disband. Your moral support of
the baiid is wanted.
Following is the programme;

The regular; weekly meeting of
the Anyox Community League
was held in the Reoreation Hall,
Friday,. April 20th. Present: President Lewis, Vice-President Callanan, Secretary ^Treasurer Townshend
Councillors Mrs. Dwyer and
The minutes of the preceeding
meeting were adopted as read on a
motion by'Mr. Simpson, which was
seoonded by Mir. Callanan. The
Secretary's report stated that an
Intermediate Baseball League had
been organized, that an order for
repairs to swings, etc. on the children's playgrounds had been issued,
that' a joint meeting ,pjj' football
baseball and Communi% Leagrie"
Executives had been held and a'
number of matters effecting slimmer sport discussed1.: .' It was
agreed that the Community League
should handle the grounds as in the
past and do all things necessary to
make the season successful. The
League was to make all collections
pay all expenses out >of same, and
if any surplus remains at the con
ohisipuof^^Jhe>Sp£^-season this will
be divided three ways. The different-clubs were to; pay for their
'own baseballs, and these would riot
be a charge against the receipts of
the games, A - groundsman was
thought necessary arid the matter
was left to the judgement of the
League with strong reoommenda'
tions that soriie arrangements be
made to have the grounds ready at
all times. It was decided to make
the admission to the gaihe ten cents
which should be collected from
everybody.; The appointment of
umpires and referees was to^ be in
the hands ofthe baseball and football executives, suggestions made
being that the rate of pay should
be $2.00 a game. The. Intermediate League was granted two
nights a week. The nights of play
were apportioned as follows: Baseball, Monday and Thursday; football, Tuesday and Friday;
IntermeHiates, Wednesday and
Saturday. A request was made
to have, two dugoutsi built for the
conveniences of players, which the
League should authorize.

A good deal of discussion has
been going on of late in the press
regarding the departure of Canadians to the United States, and all
kinds of figures have been given
regarding the number of those
crossing the line. However many
there are departing, the fact remains that there should not be a
single one. This country is big
enough and rich enough to support
a population of 100,000,000
people. Why so many people are
leaving the country is for the federal and provincial -governments to
solve, and the quicker Jit is solved
and remedies applied to stop the
outflow and turn the tide the other
way, the better for us all. It is to
the interest of everyone that the
population of Canada be increased
as much as possible. The more
people we have the less the tax
per capita.
It was with a thrill of pleasure
that the people of Alice Arm received the newsj last week that the
government had decided to construct the Kitsault River bridge
this year. We were fortunate
that our member, Mr. H. F.
Kergin, was recently in Victoria,
and was thus able to personally
impress upon the government the
necessity of building a bridge this
year. It is expected that the
structure will be a permanent one,
and will be built to serve the community for a good many years.
There is no doubt that in the years
to come we shall look with pride
upon the bridge that helped to
build our town, and after it is open
for traffic we shall probably
wonder how we ever managed to
get along without it. The days
of the boat ferry, cable ferry, and
foot logs will soon be a thing of
the past. We are progressing
slowly every year in the matter of
transportation, and are, by degrees
realizing our hopes.

Special to the Herald
Copper market is quiet, with fair
amount of inquiry. Prices are. firm,
with little metal offering under 17 34
cents, and then only in order to keep
in touch with the market. European
inquiry is in moderate volume, and
sales small. Both foreign and domestic buyers seem to be awaiting developments in the stock market to give
them better indication of trend of
American business during second half
year. They appear to feel that unless
March shipments are' as large as many
expect them to be, there is little to be
gained by making commitments ' at
present with sufficient metal on their
books to carry them for another two
months. One reason for the comparatively small buying by Europe in the
American market for the last week or
so has been reselling by German fabricators. With Ruhr complications
affecting their operations German'
firms find their copper afloat yields
them better "mark" profit at present
exchange .rates than if they attempted
to work it up in their own plants.
Amount of copper thus appearing,
while sufficient to satisfy considerably
part of present British,' French and
Scandinavian demands, is comparatively small in total aud with renewed
buying in earnest will not effect the
market materially.

Premier . Oliver Meets with
Success.   Labor Conditions
are Better
Victoria April 24th.—Reports everywhere from the prairie provinces
indicate that Premier Oliver has met
with surprising support in the provincial fight for equal freight rates. Last
.week he spoke at Calgary, Saskatoon;
Swift Current, Medicine Hat and
Lethbridge and was assured of the
unanimous support of the prairie
people. His prediction that British
Columbia ports will be the most
important in ten years and his clear
explanation of the freight rate situation have stirred the business men
and farmers of Alberta and Saskatchewan to the point where the three
western provinces are now putting up
a solid front in the fight for fairer
Hon. John Hart, minister of industries and of finance, has about completed his inspection of industrial
plants and makes the announcement
that British Columbia is today in
better condition than for ten years.
Practically all the plants are working
full blast and there is actually a labour
shortage in some instances.
In the latter connection the announcement comes from the labor department, under Attorney-General Manson
that for the first three months of this
year the government employment
bureau placed 9,000 man and women
in positions, or almost double the
number of placements for the same
period last year.
'Save the forests" week will be
observed throughout Canada from
April 23 to April 28, and following
the recommendation of Hon. T. D.
Patullo, pi'ovincial minister of lands.
Ottawa has given instructions of the
carrying out of an active campaign
of protection during .that time.
Already the British Columbia forestr
branch has sent out a mass of literature
and a determined effort is to be made
to put down the loss from forest fires
to a minimum this year. Last year's
losses were staggering says the minister of lands, and only by the co-operation of every citizen can the forest
wealth be conserved.

Under the head of corresponds
enoe, a letter was read from Mr.
Stewart Steele, in which Mr.
Steele asked the Council to accept
his resignation as a councillor. As
the band practised every Friday
night, he found that he could not
attend both band rehearsal and
League meeting at the same time
and do himself or the organizations
mentioned any good. The resignation was accepted on motion of
Mr. Simpson, which was seconded
by Mr. Townshend.
There was some discussion, over
the meeting of the joint executive
and what was done, and all agreed
that the arrangements made were
excellent. The results of the meeting were endorsed on a motion of
Mrs. Dwyer seconded by Mr. Callanan.
Mr. Townshend, under the head
of new business, called attention
to the fact that there were a number of people using the reading
room who were not entitled to the
^privilege. He suggested that notices be printed and placed in
conspicuous plaoes in the roading
room stating that the reading room
was supported by subscriptions and
everybody was expected to contribute. The Seoretary was asked to
frame something along this line,
and the meeting adjourned.

This world is full of critics,
Who strive with all their might
To find the faults in others,
But seldom they are right.
They'll criticize the way you live,
What'er you have to say;
Your every action they Will watch—
They know the proper way.
They'll criticize the clothes you wear,
The shoessupon your feet,
Will tell you how to act
Toward friends yon chance to meet.
They'll criticize the work you do,
Arid though it may sound funny,
They'll even want to tell you
The way to spend your inoneV,
We all of us are critics;
Yes, you ahd you, and I;
We cannot stop our knocking
No matter how we try.
Think well before you speak,
As yOiT wander on Life's way,
And do the best you can,
In your actions day by day.
Look upon the brighter side,
And always wear a smile;
You will then be making friends
That will be worth your while,
Why then borrow trouble?   ' .
Enough will come your way;
Better be cheerful-and happy,
And pleasant all the day.
What is, the use of worrying
About troubles of any kind?
All of us are going to die
And leave this world behind.
