Political Situation Is Fully
Discussed by J. C. Brady
The most brilliant speech of the
present politioal campaign was
that given by Mr. J. C. Brady,
conservative candidate at Alice
Arm on Tuesday evening. In a
masterful manner, that showed
he was thoroughly conversant with
every phase of the political situation he addressed a large and appreciative audience for two hours
and ten minutes. He oritioized,
ridiculed and pitied the Mackenzie
King government, aud described
the platform of the Conservative
party when they are elected to
Mr. J. Trinder was chairman of
the meeting, and iu a few opening
remarks, asked the audience which
they would rather have to represent them at Ottawa, a man
who admitted that he did not
possess an education, and knew
nothing of politics, or a man such
as Mr. Brady, who was well fitted
in every respect to represent them.
Mr. Brady in opening his address
stated how pleased he was to again
address an Alice Arm audience,
and stated that the reason why he
could not visit more often was because of the large area of the
Skeena riding. It is, he said, 1)4
times larger than Belgium, and
larger than either Ireland or Soot-
land. It comprises five provincial
ridings, which is an immense area
for one man to cover. He stated
that all his time was taken up
with parliamentary affairs, six
months of the year is spent at
Ottawa, and th6 other six in tour
ing the constituency, investigating
the needs of the people. He had
visited every remote part of this
vast riding and was thoroughly
conversant with the obstacles and
hardships pioneers were subject to.
Mr. Brady stated that his efforts
had been instrumental in getting
the government to construct miles
and miles of telegraph lines in the
northern interior for the benefit of
settlers. He had worked hard for
aids to navigation along the coast,
wharfs, floats, etc. and the Liberal
party were now claiming the credit. He deplored such a policy, and
said that Mr. Hanson had followed
in his footsteps.
The balance of the speech was
occupied in explaining the national
political situation.' Mackenzie
King, the speaker said, in his opening speech at Brautford, stated
that the government was going to
the people on three issues: 1st.
the policy and record of past years;
2nd. the Dunning budget, and 3rd.
that King and his ministers might
be sent to London for the Imperial
Conference. In dealing with these
subjects I will go to the ministers
of the cabinet for my information
the speaker said. Their reports I
have with me.
In dealing with Mr. Hanson's
popularity, Mr. Brady said that it
is significant that not one cabinet
minister has spoken in the Skeena
riding in support of the Liberal
candidate, which is an'exception.

Olof Hanson Gives Address
In Anyox at Big Smoker
Two Political Smokers were
held in this district during the
week by Mr. Olof Hanson, Liberal
candidate. The first was held at
Anyox on Thursday evening and
the second at Alice Arm on Eri-
day afternoon.
At the Anyox gathering it was
pointed out that the affair was not
a political meeting, but a smoker
for the boys.
Mr. Gonzales, Prince Rupert
barrister, gave a brief speech,
pointing out Mr. Hanson's record
for the last 23 years in Northern
B.C., as a laborer and later as a
business man who employed from
1000 to 1600 men in winter, and he
emphasized the fact that Mr. Hanson always played 100 per cent
fair'with his employees and anyone
he did business with. He also
pointed out that though Mr. Hanson was not, and did uot pretend
to be, a platform orator, heoertain-
ly could and did "Talk Business"
in such a convincing manner that
he got what he wanted for Northern B.C., and the Skeena riding,
giving several instances to prove
this statement.
In refering to Mr. Hanson's opponent in the coming election, Mr.
Brady, Mr. Gonzales said he would
not and could not say anything
against the work of Mr. Brady,
but he was very emphatic in his
prediction that the Liberal Party,
under Mr Mackenzie King, would
be returned to power, and that it
would be very foolish of the people
of Northern B. C. to vote for a
member  of   the  opposition   who
would be powerless to do much for
his constituency.
During the passing round of
refreshments and cigars, several
musical numbers were rendered by
the orchestra, with everyone joining in the chorus. Mr. Walter
Stenton also obliged with a solo
and an encore.
Mr. "Bill" Asselstine, Mill Superintendent for the Premier Gold
Mining Company, then gave a
short talk. "Bill" was a scream
and in less than no time had the
crowd roaring with laughter. He
would start out to tell a funny
story and wouid end up talking
politics, or starting ou politics
would end up by nearly raising the
roof with a story that had everyone roaring with laughter.
However, Mr. Asselstine did
manage to say a few words iu regard to the Tariff. He said he
was in favor of a "Protective
Tariff" for Canadian Industries,
but not the high tariff of the Conservative party ( which made it
absolutely prohibitive for anyone
to import goods manufactured outside of Canada. He said the tariff
as he favored it was the tariff policy of the Mackenzie King Government, which was reasonable, and
yet afforded the protection that
Canadian Industry needed, but at
the same time was not a high wall
which Canadian Manufacturers
could hide behind. As he put it,
he did not see why Canada should
have such a high tariff wall that
Canadian producers could sell their

Mr. Olof Hanson Visits
Alice Arm
On Friday last, Mr. Olof Hanson, liberal oandidate for tho Skeena riding, paid a visit to Alice
Arm. He was accompanied by
W. Asselstine of the Premier mine,
Mr. Gonzales and J. Grier of
Prince Rupert. A hurry-up meeting was oalled at the Alice Arm
Hotel during the afternoon, at
which Mr. Hanson and the visitors
addressed those present.
As we have published their
Anyox addresses, which were much
along the same lines, it is not necessary to repeat them here.
Mr. Harry Smith was chairman
of the meeting, and gave a short
opening address. He praised the
past record of the Mackenzie King
government, and in his opinion the
people could not do better than
eleot Mr, Hanson as their representative. He has chosen British
Columbia as his home, he said, and
he has made good.
Following the addresses of the
visitors, short speeches were made
by Chas. Harmon of Anyox, and J.
Fiva and Morris Peterson of Alice
Anyox Pupil Wins Governor-
General's Medal
To Miss Amy MacDonald of
Anyox, goes the high honor of
winning the Governor—General's
gold medal for entrance class examination. She holds the honor
of obtaining the highest number of
marks of any pupil in the province,
having a total of 553 out of a possible 600. A total of 7169 pupils
wrote for the examinations.
Miss MacDonald is to be congratulated upon her wonderful
achievement, and her instructor
Mr. D. J. Hartley is to be congratulated, Anyox is proud of both,
and justly so.
Anyox Polling Booth at Gym.
Voters at Anyox Beach are advised that Polling Booths for the
election on Monday, July 28th., will
be held in the Gymnasium. The
polls will be open from 8 a.m. to
6 p.m.
They were unanimous in their
opinion that Mr. Hanson was the
best man of the two candidates to
represent this district at Ottawa. ALICE   ARM   AND  ANYOX  HERALD.   Friday, July 25, 1930

goods at high prices in the Canadian protected market, and yet
have these same manufacturers
export their goods to other countries and sell them at a considerably lower price. To use Mr.
Asselstine'8 own illustration, running shoes that are sold at $1.50
per pair in Canada, but which can
be marketed in England at a profit for two shillings and sixpence.
The orchestra then rendered a
few more popular airs while' sandwiches, etc. were being passed
around, and after several humorous
stories were told, Mr. Hanson addressed the gathering for a few
He said he was highly pleased
with the welcome he had received
at Anyox, and was very glad to be
able to meet all the boys in the
friendly spirit that prevailed at the
Smoker, and realizing that it was
a Smoker and not a political meet-
ting, he would make his remarks
as short as possible.
He said that he had been nominated, not so much as a Liberal, but
as a Labor man that the Liberals
were satisfied to have him represent them in the House.
He pointed out to those present
that after he had travelled through
many countries in both North and
South America he had decided to
settle down aud make his home in
Canada, and that he had become a
Naturalized Canadian and had
adopted the country on account of
British protection, equality and
Mr. Hanson also said he knew
he was not an orator of the well-
educated class, and could not make
a speech in the way that his opponent could, not having received
his education in a college or Uiii
versity. He said that he and < r.
Dunning, who was responsible lor
the Dunning Budget, had been
neighbors on the praires, and that
they had both bean educated in the
school of hard knocks,
Mr. Hanson went on to say that
he had a good business and was
a busy man, but he would be
pleased to represent Skeena District at Ottawa, if the people
elected him on July 28th, and that
he would serve the people to the
bsst of his ability, but, on the
other hand, if they did not care to
have him represent them he did
not mind, for as he had said before, he had plenty of work to dot
and that he was not in politics for
financial reasons, so it was up to
the people of this District whether
they elected him or not, either way-
was alright with him.
Considerable enthusiasm was
shown, and it was evidenced iu
the fact that when the meeting
started at 8.30, over two hundred
people were present.
Alice Arm is Requested
To Send Ore Samples
To Vancouver
The Herald has received a communication from Mr. Frank E.
Woodside, manager of the British
Columbia Chamber of Mines, Vancouver, asking for ore samples for
exhibition purposes at Vancouver.
In an open letter to mining property-
owners, he states that:
"The Canadian Pacific Exhibition
will be held at Hastings Park, Vancouver, from August 6th. to the
16th next. We are endeavoring to
gather together a collection of new
mineral samples for an exhibit from
all the mines and prospects in British Columbia and would very much
appreciate receiving a sample of
ore from your property. A representative sample of say 5 or 10
pounds would be quite satisfactory
for the purpose. This could be
forwarded to us freight charges
"We should also be pleased to
receive any photographs of your
property which might be of interest
to mining men.
"There are valuable prizes given
at the Exhibitions for the best'displays of ore. When forwarding
ore samples please enclose the
following information: Name of
mine or mineral claim; class of ore
produced; name of owner; name of,
and distance from nearest shipping
point; name of mining district or
division in which it is situated.
"Send in your samples to the
British Columbia Chamber of Mines,
402 Pender St. West, Vancouver,
and help boost the mining industry
in  British  Columbia.    Prospectors
There is a possibility that Can-
ad's gold production in 1930 may
exceed that of the United States,
and that Canada may thus take
second place among world producers. The Canadian output in 1929
amounted to 1,927,295 ounces, valued at $39,840,722.
A bounty of $1 per ton is to be
given by the government to enable

Surplus Copper Stocks
Are Showing Big
The metal markets continue their
downward price movement. World
production of copper in May was
147,353 tons as compared with 14+
298 tons in April, and surplus
stocks on this continent made a
gain of 7,308 tons to a very high
total of 308,646 tons, the highest in
many years, states the July Letter
of the Canadian Bank of Com
merce. Consumption was disappointing at levels which it was
anticipated would bring forward a
new buying movement and prices
were again fractionally reduced,
but a good export business has
been developed and prices firmed to
12 cents a pound. There has been
a constant though gradual decline
in quotations for both lead and zinc.
Stocks of lead are moderate, being
less than a month's normal requirements, and demand continues fairly
good. Stocks of zinc, however,
are the largest in history. The
price of silver has consistently declined during the -past month.
While it is steadily being supplanted as a monetary metal and thus
fluctuates for much the same reasons as other commodities, it is still
widely used for transactions in the
Far East, and any falling off in
value has repercussions on the purchasing power of the countries
concerned and on trade generally.

50 million pounds of animal products. Last year for the first time in
forty years we exported no bacon
to Great Britain, and we imported
40 million pounds of butter. Each
year Great Britain imports the
enormous amount of 900 million
pounds of butter, but we have lost
the market.
Mr. Brady was of the opinion
that the Canadian farmer is being
forced out of business. They can't
sell to the U. S. A. and the government is not protecting their dom
estic market,. We are importing
vegetables from the West Indies,
butter from New Zealand and coal
from Russia, and taking employment, away from our own people.
We imported 250,000 tons of Rus
Man ooal last year and 500,000 tons
this year, which was produced by
a low wage scale, which Canadian
miners could not compete with.
The greatest fear today he said is
not sickness or accidents among
they working classes, but the dread
of unemployment.
The speaker read a list of woollen
mills closed down in Eastern Canada due to foreign competition, and
stated that the Liberal Government's low tariff policy is responsible for it and also onr small population. He said that in 1920 our
population was 8,728,000, today it
is 9,588,000. In that time there
were 2,173,000 births and 938,000
deaths. Immigrants coining into
the country totalled 1,130,000.
If these immigrants had stayed
here and our own people had not
left for the United States we would
have a population of 11,250,000
instead of 9,588,000. In the meantime our taxation  was increasing.
Last year we imported $900,000,-
000 worth of goods from the United States and sold them at less
than $500,000,000.
In dealing with taxation and
unemploymenti Mr. Brady said
that last year our taxes had increased to the enormous sum of
$395,000,000. He blamed the
Liberal Government for the big
army of unemployed, and was due
to their policy during the past nine
years.   He stated that despite re-
During this week Mr. J. C.
Brady held three meetings in this
district, Alice Arm, Anyox Mine
and Beach. As we are publishing
a report of his Alice Arm meeting
in this issue we did not think it
necessary to also report his Anyox
addresses, which were much along
the same lines. Our readers probably understand that it takes
lime and money to publish political
addresses for both parties. Each
party clamors for publicity, but
they want it free. Sometimes they
forget that we have advertising
space to sell, or that a subscription
would be acceptable.
Anyox Cubs Visit Alice Arm
The troop of Anyox Cubs, in
charge of Scoutmaster Gale spent
the week-end at Alice Arm. The
weather was ideal and the boys
greatly enjoyed their tramps
through the woods, fishing etc.
They left for home on Sunday
presentations, King has declined to
assist the unemployed, but recently
made the statement that the matter will be taken up following the
Imperial Conference.
The speaker dealt with past constructive legislation of the Conservative party. He deplored the
shipping of our minerals in a more
or less raw state to the United
States, and gave figures to show
that we lose a lot of money by
such methods.
