series for the Basketball Cup were
played on Friday, March 17th. all
the teams of the League participating. Close scores featured the
men's games. The High School

points, and the Vandals defeated
the Concentrator by only five
The first game found the High
School nine points behind the
Machinists at half time, and pulling
up to within two points by the time
the final whistle blew. The youngsters almost made the grade, and
on the play deserved a better fate.
Wendle, a new man from Prince
Rupert, proved a tower of strength
to the students, but was unfortunate in being sent to the showers
towards the end. D. Gillies and

A quiet wedding took place at the
Anglican Church, Anyox, on Monday the 20th. when Miss Kthel Clay
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. A. E.
Clay, of Cloverdale, was united in
marriage to Mr, Morton Rook, of
Johannesburg, South Africa. Mrs.

Large Deficit In Federal
Means People To Pay Still
Higher Taxes
Hon. E. N. Rhodes presented his
budget to Parliament on Tuesday at
Ottawa with the following outstanding announcements:
Caaba's deficit-on ordinary, account for the year is $53,608,000.
Ordinary revenues totalled $310,-
817,000 and ordinary expenditures
Total additions to the debt to
Canada, both for government operations and deficits of the Canadian
National system, amount to $156,-

March 31 next will approximate
The government proposes to float
another conversion loan. It will be
offered to the people of Canada and
the minister declared, "It will be on
a basis that will keep faith with investors and will not in any sense
involve repudiation of existing contracts. It is believed," he said,
"that issue can be made at a rate
which will involve a substantial
saving to the public treasury." He
did not say when the loan would be
A. C. L. Dance At The
Mine Very Enjoyable
On Thursday last, a most enjoyable dance was held in the Mine
Hall, under the auspices of the
Mine Branch of the Community
League. The function fulfilled in
all respects the purposes for which
it was held; viz, to provide an opportunity for old and new residents
of the town to become acquainted,
and to make the new-comers welcome and at home.
A large crowd attended, and
splendid music was dispensed by
Stretton's Merrymakers, who were
most generous in their numbers and
encores. A tasty supper was served
and the dance was continued until
the wee small hours of Friday a.m.
The Mine Branch of the Community League are to be congratulated
on the success which attended this
Granby Co. Plant Now
Operating Continuously
All departments in the big ore-
reduction plant at Anyox are now
operating with scarcely a hitch.
The smelter has been working continuously since it was started two
weeks ago, as this last and biggest
link in the chain of production
scarcely ever shuts down.
Our report last week which mentioned an occasional slowing up of
the smelter was in error, as it is of
course realized that shut-downs in
this department seldom take place.
The new crew at the mine are doing
excellent work in the production of
ore and are quick to adapt themselves to new conditions.

And through it all is a down-to-
earth convincing love story. You
have not only the combined talents
of every star of the radio to gloriously entertain you, but there is the
great heart story of the people

a great cast, and a great picture for
you on Saturday.
Anyox Athletes Ready For
Outdoor Sports
The pulses of sports devotees
quicken at the thought of the coming season's possibilities. There is
every cause for this. Among the
many new men at the camp, there
are several baseball and football
players, all of whom are keen on
the commencement of looal sports
Sport is well represented on the
Beaoh Council of the Community
League, as well as on that of the
Mine Branch. Whole-hearted support is expected from the many
lovers of sport which the cainp now
holds. With a real get-together
spirit in the interest of sport generally, and hearty co-operation between the public and the Beach
and Mine Branches of the Community League, the season is sure to be
a record one, and should provide a
great deal of recreation for players
and public alike throughout the
whole community.
A large number of people attended the annual St. Patrick's Day
Celebration, which this year took
the form of a Card Party and Dance
and was held in the Catholic Hall.
So great was the crowd that everyone could not be accommodated in
the hall for supper and a special
room was arranged downstairs for
the overflow.
The hall was well filled for the
cards, both whist and bridge being
played, the winners being as follows:
Whist: Ladies' first Mrs. Patterson
Consolation Mrs. J. Donaldson,
Men's first, Mr. Kenny, Consolation
A. Levoir. Bridge: Ladies' first
prize Mrs. K. O. Peterson, Consolation Mrs. F. Henderson, Men's
first, J. Shields, Consolation T.
After supper dancing was indulged in to excellent music supplied by-
Mrs. MacMillan's Orchestra, and
extra numbers were played by Mr.
Allen and Miss McLachlan. Mr. H.
G. Laurie's pupils, in full costume
delighted everyone with the Irish
Jig, which was splendidly performed, A number of old-time dances
were also greatly enjoyed. The
committee in charge wish to thank
everyone who so kindly assisted in
making the evening a success.
George Raft, Nancy Carroll, Roscoe
Karns, Gregory Ratoff, Lew Cody.
This is George Raft's biggest
story to date. He is as smooth as
steel and just as tough. He plays
his dangerous game to a whirlwind
finish; smashes the raiders who
dare the dead-line of Wall Street.
Another 100 per cent Paramount
picture. The lure of the theatre
has domjnated the Raft family for
three generations. George, the
latest, plays the leading role in
"Under-cover Man". He emigrates to Hollywood, and finally
wins the leading role in "Night
after Night" and then in "Undercover Man". A truly great Paramount picture for Tuesday.    .
Pals Win From Spooks In
Play-off Game
Coming up from behind in the
second session, the Pals, by dint of
nice combination and fast play, won
from the Spooks on Friday the 17th.
in the first of a series of play-off
games. At the breather the Spooks
had a comfortable lead and evidently had matters well in hand, but in
the second half were somehow unable to connect with the elusive
hoop, while on the other hand the
Pals found everything to their liking.
The score ended 27 to 22 after a
most interesting tussle.
Departure of   Mrs.   James
MacMillan Regretted
General regret was felt throughout the district a few days ago,
when it was known that Mrs. James
MacMillan was leaving Anyox
shortly. Mrs, MacMillan, who has
resided in Anyox for four years,
has been of invaluable assistance in
musical and choral circles during
that time. She has always been
most willing to play for children's
dances, to furnish accompaniments
for soloists at concerts, etc. and
her willingness and adaptability in
this respect has made her beloved
by everyone. She possesses the
true community spirit, and her
charming personality will be greatly
missed throughout the district.

K. MOSS. Editor and Publisher,
The Hon. J. W. Jones, minister ol finance, who laid his budget
before the Legislature last week,
did not mince matters in regard to
the future plans of the government
regarding retrenchment. He stated clearly that the government
planned to abolish still more grants
to the municipalities, and also that
no public works of any description
would be undertaken anywhere in
the province. The future policy
of the government is for economy
all along the line, regardless of
whom it hurts.
The rich man will be more
heavily taxed. The poor man's
taxes will not be raised because
he cannot pay any more anyway.
The unemployed were not forgotten. It is proposed to eliminate
government relief and make unemployed men and women dependable upon charitable institutions
and the aid of their fellow men.
We are afraid that if such a policy
is enforced a good many men,
women and children will die of
starvation before another year
passes. This would be a dark
blot on our civilization, especially
as there are thousands of tons of
foodstuffs destroyed each year
through lack of market. Those
holding government bonds could
more easily endure a cut in interest
rates than could the unemployed
lose their monthly meagre pittance.
The Hon. Mr. Jones gave a
very lucid and detailed account of
how the finances of the province
have been conducted for the past
twenty years. In his opinion it
has been an orgy of spending, each
government trying to set new
spending records. The result is
that we are paying interest on a
stupendous amount of money, and
that is one big reason for our present financial difficulty. It does not
mend matters to look back and bemoan past mistakes. It should,
however, teach all future governments a lesson. "As ye sow so
shall ye reap," is as applicable today as 2000 years ago, when
Christ gave that imperishable
advice to his followers.
Canadian   Copper   Exports
Increased In 1932
Besides the increased export of
copper to Great Britain in 1932
there were large increases also to
France, Germany, Italy, Belgium
and Sweden. The total export
was valued at $12,597,666 as
against $9,278,44] in 1931.

grass of the other fellow's path,

How New Government
Taxation Policy Effects
The budget brought down in the
Provincial Legislature last week by
Hon. J. W. Jones, minister of finance was not such n bitter pill as
had been expected. However, it is
bad enough in suoh times as these,
when money is scarce and the majority spend many anxious hours
trying to solve the problemn of
paying their taxes.
Following are some of the. outstanding news items in connection
with the 'midget:
No increase in taxation on any
income under $5,000. Above,
$5,000 a new graduated surtax
ranging from 1 to 18 per cent.
Succession duties increased 25 per
School taxontsideschooldistricts
cut from 5 to 2 mills.
Municipalities' grants of liquor
profits and pari-mutuel taxes cut
by $640,000.
Government estimates expenditures at $22,729,593, including
$2,421,620 for sinking funds. Revenues estimated at $20,497,591,
but as full sinking fund provision
will not be made, government does
not expect actual deficit.
A new salary scale will effect
cuts ranging from 4 to 20 per cent,
in place of the present cuts ranging from 3 to 17 per cent.
Cabinet ministers' salaries will
lie cut from $6225 a year to $6000,
members indemnities from $1,800
to $1,600. Two years ago ministers received $7,500 and members
Departmental expenditures have
been cut by $8,900,000 since 1930-
31. Next year's departmental
costs will be lower than those of
1920 by$530,000, although population has grown 221,000, or 42 per
cent, in that period. These expenditures will be 50c per capita less
than in 1916.
The provincial net debt on November 1, 1932, was $120,622,000,
an increase of $9,117,000 iu the
year, due to unemployment costs.
In the same time sinking funds
increased $2,401,000. The theoretical surplus of these funds is $2,-
950,000, or $578,000 greater than
the surplus a year ago. Yearly
earning powers of sinking funds
are $98,700 in excess of requirements.
The total oost of unemployment
relief up to the end of 1932 was
$16,939,300, of which the province
paid $6,819,700.
Revenues fell in the last fiscal
year by $5,926,000, which is chiefly
responsible for the last deficit

Lapse of Miner's Licence
Will Not Lose Him
His Property
Hon. W. A. MoKenzie, minister
of mines, introduced an important
amendment to the Mineral Act in
the Legislature last week, providing that when a free miner's license
lapses ou May 31, he will not, by
,! reason of such lapse, be put in a
position of risking all right, title
or interest, in his mining property
as is the condition under the present "Mineral Act." He may take
out a special free miner's certificate
at any time during the period of
six months after May 31, which
special certificate will re-vest him
in title. In other words he is given
six months' grace, as now is the
oase with this important additional protection—that during this
period he is fully protected providing he takes out a speoial certificate
and pays the penalty attending the
obtaining of that certificate. N°
one can locate his ground; no one
can take any mineral values from
his mineral claim; no one can in
any way enter upon his mining
property during the six months
that he is allowed to remedy the
lapse of his certificate which may
have occurred on the previous
May 31. After six months all
right, title and interest in the claim
is lost.
