Activities Of Canadian
Legion Are Fully
At a recent meeting of the Anyox
Branch of the Canadian Legion
B.E.S.L. the question was brought
up as to the standing of an Imperial
ex-service man in the above mentioned organization.
It was very apparent from the
nature of the discussion that a few
of the ex-Imperial members are not
wholly conversant with the aims
and objects of the organization.
The chief aim is comradeship.
It is to assist our comrades who
■ are in distressed circumstances.
The assistance given is to take up
a comrade's case, direct it through
the proper channels, and have it
placed before the proper authorities.     It is the medium   through
I which any ex-Service man of the
Empire army may reach any department before which   he wishes
I to place a legitimate case.
Monetary assistance is given by
|/ local branches to those of Its members who are indigent,  when such
| members make application through
I the Relief Committee. The assistance given wholly depending on the
financial standing of the branch.
There being no General Relief Fund
to draw from, the local branches
depend entirely on the prompt payment of dues, to keep an adequate
amount on hand to meet such requirements as are made on it from
time to time. It may be stated
that the Anyox Branch has been
singularly free from such calls, but
other branches throughout the
province are being hard pressed at
the present time to meet the demands made on them.
The Canadian Legion, B. E. S.
L. has no authoritive connection
with the Board of Pension Commissioners, nor with the Military Hospitals. Any ex-Service man of the
Empire armies suffering from sickness or wounds attributable to war
service may be admitted to military
hospitals by applying directly or
through the medium of the Legion
to the proper authorities.
Those who have in civilian life
contracted sickness or are suffering
from some infirmity not attributable
to war service are at present not
eligible to receive treatment in a
military hospital.
It was the wish of the meeting
that any ex-Service marl who feels
that he has cause for complaint
should state his case clearly at the
Football Benefit Dance
Was Success
A good crowd attended the dance
held in the Gymnasium on Friday
the 7th. for the benefit of injured
football players. The committee
had done everything possible to
ensure a successful function.
The splendid music furnished by
the orchestra of the Prince George,
under Len Chamberlain, was a decided novelty and was greatly enjoyed by all. This orchestra played
during the whole lime the boat was
in port, and needless to say they
received a big hand when the time
came for their departure.
The New Victor Otchestra played
for the balance of the evening, and
the dancers were equally appreciative of the music supplied.
The tasteful supper was looked
after by a committee of ladies, to
whom the committee tender their
hearty thanks for their willing cooperation. It is expected that a
good sum will be realized as a result of the function.
Prince Rupert Football
Team May Visit
Although final arrangements have
not been concluded, it is fully expected that an all-star soccer team
from Prince Rupert will come to
Anyox to play two games here in
the last week in August. This will
be a great event for Anyox folk.
Football is the leading sport in
Prince Rupert, and they boast some
of the best players on the Coast. In
the recent games played with the
famous soccer team of H. M. S.
Dragon—a team which has won
honors in many parts of the
world—Prince Rupert put up a
splendid showing.
On the other hand Anyox has
footballers who are capable of giving any team Prince Rupert may
send a real surprise. Everything is
in readiness to hold a series of two
games here. Admission will most
likely be by ticket to both games.
This is a really attractive sports

Mine and Smelter Draw
In Fast Cup-Tie
In the Cup-tie game between the
Mine and Smelter on Thursday the
6th. the only goals scored were one
by either side from penalties. Both
teams played an excellent game, the
Mine being a little unfortunate in
not being on top, especially in the
second half. This was chiefly due
to the sound work of the Smelter
backs and the good goal tending.
In the first half, George Hunter
effected a thrilling save from a sudden whizzing shot by Dyer. Pynn
had charge of the Mine goal and
was ready to clear whenever needed. A big crowd of fans was on
In the Anyox football league
game on Tuesday the 4th. the Mine
were beaten by the Celts 4-3. The
Mine played a first-class game, and
had much the best of matters in the
first half, but luck was against
them in their scoring.
Tony Yglesias, playing left wing,
put in a spectacular goal from the
25-yard line. Morrison and Davis
got one apiece for the Mine, the
Celts' counters being by McColl
and Horner (2.) The fourth goal
for the Celts was accidental, the
ball hitting the back of one of the
Mine players and bouncing into the
net. The game was full of interesting little incidents, and was
thoroughly enjoyed by the large
crowd who witnessed it.

There are a number of people
in British Columbia who insist that
if the Canadian Pacific Railway
Co. do not see their way clear to
build a railway from the Peace
River Country to the Pacific
Coast, then the work should be
undertaken by the Federal Government. The advocates of a
government built railway claim
that it would relieve western unemployment. It would, to a certain
extent, but as soon as the railway
was completed the government
would be burdened with another
railway on which any deficit arising would have to be met by the
already overburdened taxpayers.
We are making good the enormous deficits of the Canadian
National Railways, the Hudson
Bay Railway and the Pacific
Great Eastern. Heaven protect
us from any more. Premier
Bennett was right when he refused
to spend the people's money on
building another railway. If the
C. P. R. cannot see any profits
accruing at the present time from
a railway to the Coast—and they
evidently cannot or they would
build—then the government is well
advised in not spending money on
a doubtful profit paying project.

The Alice Arm exhibition of
garden produce that is being
sponsored by Mr. Harry Smith, is
a sign that Alice Arm is becoming
to realize that it has an agricultural industry in addition to a mining
industry. Now that mining is
stagnated throughout the world it
affords such towns as Alice Arm
an opportunity to develop her agricultural industry. There is enough
land on the Kitsault Flats, which,
if properly cultivated could supply
the town of Alice Arm and a
surplus for Anyox with livestock
of all descriptions, butter, milk,
chickens and eggs, also small fruits,
and vegetables of all kinds.   The {world.

from the present stump acreage to
cultivated land will require a large
amount of work. A start, however, has been made and the clearing done has well rewarded the
efforts of those engaged.

The chief reason for the celebration is to instil into the children the
fact that on that day the weight of

Germany and Austria-Hungary,
and later against Turkey and Bulgaria, in order to stop their war
of aggression, that if successful
