Political Parties Rouse
For Action
Three Candidates Will Soon
Be Nominated
Who, and how many political
candidates will be in the Held in
this constituency, in the forthcoming provincial election has not yet
been determined. Mr. H. F.
Kergin, when approached on the
subject as to whether he would
seek re-election, stated that he
had nothing to say until after the
Liberal convention which will be
held shortly.
The Conservative party will
nominate their candidate at a convention to be held in Anyox on
May 16. A number of local men
of both Anyox and Alice Arm have
been discussed as likely candidates
but a choice has yet to be made.
The Provincial party will hold
their convention in Anyox within
two weeks, when a candidate will
be chosen.
It is understood that Mr. Geo.
Casey, of Prince Rupert, the labor
candidate at the last election will
not contest the seat.

cables carrying the bridge have
been strung out, and it is expected
that by this evening the bridge
will be available for foot traffic,
The blocks of concrete, each comprising 41 yards, whioh are used as
anchors for the cable are all ready.
All piles have been driven for
approaches on both banks, and all
that remains to be done is the
building of the roadway approaches

The bridge has a span of 230 feet,
and the cable carrying the bridge
is 2i inches in thickness.
The wing dam which was built
for protection of the town has
been extended over 100 feet, and
completely protects the west tower
of the bridge. The height of the
dam at the tower is about
twelve feet.
Provincial Party Hold
Meeting at Alice Arm
Government Extensively
The Provincial Party are evidently not going to be caught
"asleep at the switch" during the
coming election. Last week-end
they addressed meetings at Anyox
aud Alice Arm, and incidently
started the ball rolling, for the
coming contest.
The Alice Arm meeting was
held at the Coliseum on Sunday
afternoon, with Mr. S. Morrison in
the chair. The meeting was
addressed by Messrs. J. F. Tener
of Vernon, and H. W. M. Rolston
of Stewart.
Mr. Tener, who gave a lengthy
address criticized the press of the
province for omitting evidence
given in favor of the Provincial
Party at the P. G. E. Royal
Commission, and also made the
charge that they distorted facts.
He gave an outline of the
history of the party, and said he
was one of the fifteen farmers of
Vernon started the movement.
He claimed tb*^.financially B. C.
is in the worst position of any
province in Canada, and also stated
that the government were spending far too much money on public
works, including roads and trails.
Mr. Tener was of the opinion
that both Oliver and Bowser were
poor managers and should be fired,
and the Provincial Party given a
chanoe. We have more natural
riohes than any other western
state or province, but are the most
backward, and bad management
was responsible for small population. He was in favor of the
abolition of politicial patronage,
and was in favor of only taxing
the net profits of mining companies,
and not every ton of ore as is now

Members Anyox Moose
Lodge Visit Alice Arm
Enjoyable Day Spent by
Officers and Members of the
Loyal Order of Moose, Anyox
Lodge No. 1412, nearly forty strong
paid an official visit to the Alice
Arm members on Sunday.
Ideal summer weather prevailed,
and the visitors spent a pleasant
day exploring the beauty spots
around the logging town.
The needs of the inner man
were attended to by Mr. R. W.
Clayton, of the Alice Arm Hotel
Dining Room, who served both
lunoh and dinner to the visitors
and also the Alice Arm members,
and   left nothing   to be desired.
A Lodge meeting aud initiations
were held during the afternoon,
when six new members were
initiated into the Order.
At the conclusion of the meeting a parade headed by the Moose
band was given. The parade left
the Hotel and traversed the principal streets of the town returning
to the famous hostelery in time for
the evening meal.
During the evening a musical
programme was given in the Alice
Arm Hotel Dining Room, when
members of the orchestra were
given a chance to show their skill
with their instruments, and the
warblers followed suit with well-
chosen vocal solos.
It was a grand day, and everyone had a grand time. The musical programme was the climax of a
happy day, and it is hoped that
many, more such days will be spent
in Alice Arm, during the summer
months. The schedule of events
was carried out with precision,
and great credit is due to secretary
S. Spragg, and the officers and
members who supported him in
making the outing such a success.

This week, we are introducing
to our readers a six-page paper.
The publishing of an extra sheet
•entails a larger expenditure, which
means that if we are to continue
publishing a six-page paper we
must increase our advertising space
and also our subscription lists.
We hope to continue publishing
the Herald at its present size
throughout the coming summer, or
at least as often as possible. It
depends entirely upon the people
of Anyox and Alice Arm as to
the size of the Herald. If you
want a good live paper, support it.
Commencing this week, we
have decided to revert to the old
subscription price with which we
started, namely, $2.50 per year.
We believe that our readers
would rather have a bright and
breezy paper, containing all the
news of the district rather than a
sheet devoid of news because
money was not available for
gathering the news. We wish to
thank all our readers for their
support in the past and wish to
assure them that no pains will be
spared in the future to give them
a clean reliable up-to-date paper.
Should Anyox Have
a Clean-up Week
It is customary when spring
comes to get busy and cleiiri up the
dirt and grit that has accumulated
during the winter months.
No better example can be had of
this than the housewife who has
the thought of her spring house
cleaning uppermost in her mind
until every crevice and corner of
the house is thoroughly cleansed.
We"also notice in the newspaper
that a week is set aside by the
Vancouver civic authorities as
well as by the citizens, and everyone has come forward to assist and
do everything in their power to
make it a successful clean-up week.
It is also noticeable that the
firemen of Anyox have already
busied themselves washing the
streets, and that a number of men
employed by the Granby Company
are doing a little clean-up work
around the town.
It is true we are denied the
privilege of having flowers and
lawns, but why should they be
substituted with sticks, paper, etc.
when with a little attention the
the place could be at least made
clean and neat.
Why should we in Anyox not
follow the example of the big city
in the south and also choose a
week for cleaning up. Our yards,

Ruth and Francis Group
Bonded at Stewart
Portland Canal News
While on a trip south recently
James Nesbitt closed a deal for
the Ruth and Frances group, one
of the leading properties of the
Glacier creek section, which he and
Andy Archie located in the early
clays of the camp. The group
originally consisted of five claims,
but by the addition of four claims
owned by Duncan and Mrs.
McLean and Alex Mclnnes, which
for development purposes naturally are associated with the Ruth
and Frances, nine claims are in-
eluded in the deal.
The Ruth and Frances is bonded
as a "going concern." A large
amount of development work has
been done and a considerable tonnage of good ore is already in sight.
The bond was taken by C. A.
Mackenzie, whose London and
New York connections are almost
a guarantee that a business-like
plan of development will be inaugurated as soon as the preliminary details can be perfected.

THE first storage battery electrically driven car used by
railways in Western Canada
has been placed in service between
Winnipeg and Transcona by the
Canadian National Railways,
whose shops at Transcona employ
some 2,400 men, many of whom reside in Winnipeg, travelling back
and forth morning and Wening.
Others   reside   in Transcona with
their families, but do their shop
ping and other business in Winnie
peg. The inauguration of the new
electric car service gives a regular
schedule of runs daily which can
be operated by the railway company much more economically than
under the former system of operating extra passenger trains several times daily. The new car was
converted from a gasoline-electric
car at the St. Catherines shops of
the Canadian National.     It is of
solid steel construction throughout with four-wheeled ball bearing
trucks. The length is 63 feet over
all and accommodation is provided
for 100 passengers. One end of
the car is reserved as a smoking
compartment. The car is capable
of maintaining a speed of 40 miles
per hour on level track and makes
the one-way trip between Winnipeg and Transcona in 15 minute. ALICE   ARM   AND   ANYOX   HEUALD,   Auue  Arm,   Saturday, May 3, 1924

Huge Sums Paid Out by
Workmens' Compensation Board
The benefits of the Workmen's
Compensation Act in respect of industrial accidents are now extended to 150,000 employees in the province.
During 1923, the number of a«s
idents dealt with totalled 24,184,
of which number 268 were fatal.
The total compensation on these
oases was $2,672,679.98. There
was an average of 2015 accidents
for each month, or 80 for each
working day throughout the year.
The average period of disability
was 31.12 days, and the total wage
loss through accidents amounted
to $1,489,441.68. Of the claims
disposed of during the year, 48 per
cent, of the total arose out of accidents which occurred in the lumber industry; 9 per cent, in coal
mining; 8 per cent, in the railroading groups; 8 per cent, in manufacturing; 7 per cent, in construction; 5 per cent, iu metal mining;
4 per cent, in navigation and long-
shoring; 3 per cent, in delivery and
8 per cent, iu all other industries.
Of the fatal accidents 42 per cent,
of the total were in the lumbering
industry; 21 per cent, hi coal mining 12 per cent, in the railroading
groups; 8 per cent, in construction:
6 per cent, in metal mining; 2 per
cent, in navigation and 9 per cent,
in all other industries. Numbering, as in past years, took a larger
toll in life than any other industy.
The cost of • administration for
1923 was 3.48 per cent, of the
assessments, so that put of every
$100 oolleoted $96.54 went direct
for compensation to .the injured
workmen and their dependants.
During the seven years the
present act has been in force,
135,987 accidents have been dealt
with by the board, and 1549
proved fatal. The expenditure
made under the act for these
amounted to $13,049,999.71.

Party Will Run Candidate in
This Constituency
Birt Showier and J. F. Tener, of
Vancouver, accompanied by H.W.
M. Holston of Stewart, addressed
well attended meetings at the
Beach and Mine on Friday and
Saturday last. •
The aims of the third Party
were explained by the speakers
and a plea made for the support of
the electors. Mr. Tener dealt
largely with the proceedings at the
recent P.G.E. enquiry, at which he
was present. He grilled the
Government for the narrow confines of the commission, and stated
that by their having built a stonewall around the com mission -to
prevent enquiry, both iu it's drafting and during it's life, they had
undoubtedly convicted themselves
guilty with the people. He delighted his audiences with the
'"juicy'' tit bits the third party
lawyers brought forth, which had
not been allowed to get out to the
press. He complained bitterly
that the press had not given them
a square deal, and backed up his
complaints with the story of what
actually happened.
Following the meeting the
pledged party supporters met and
a local association was formed,
and the following officers, with
power to add to their numbers,
were elected:- President, R.
Armour, (Beaoh). Vice-Pres., S. D.
Murray, (Mine), Secy-Treas., H. R.

While the convention date has
not yet been definitely set,, it will
be held in Anyox iu the course of
the next two weeks, when some 30
delegates from all over the riding
will be in attendance. A keen
contest for the nomination is
expected, there being no lack of
exceptionally eligible timber.
FOLLOWING up the first successful experiment in remote broadcast from Winnipeg made about
ten days ago, Sir Henry W. Thornton, chairman and president of the
Canadian National Railways, appears above talking, a few evenings
ago, by long distance telephone from
his room in the Fort Garry Hotel,
Winnipeg, to  the  company's   em
ployees throughout Western Canada
via Calgary radio station CFCN. It
is Sir Henry's intention, as soon as.
the company has completed its

as possible to establish a personal

"fellow employees" of the Canadian
National system.

Dunwell Mine at Stewart
Showing Up Good
Crosscuts are being driven
through the vein on the No. 3
level of the Dunwell 100 feet
north and south from the main
opening. In (he north crosscut
eight feel of ore has been passed
through without the opposite
wall being reached. The ore is
:i breccia ted mixture of greenstone and quartz, and where the
quartz stringers cut through,
there is plenty of native silver
incl argentite. It looks like a
J nc milling product. In the south
crosscut one foot of high-grade
ore appears intact. These crosscuts prove the length of the ore
shoot on this level for 200 feet,
and the end is not yet. This is
much better than was shown on
No. 2 level, and the ore, as a
whole, is of better grade. The
management are quite elated
with developments to date.
Census Returns Ready Next
Although this is the year 1924.
Ottawa tells enquirers that it may
be 1925 before there will be a
statement issued as to the result
of tlie 1921 census in regard to tlie
number of our people in different
forms of occupation, their wage
rates, etc. By that time we will
be half way on to the next census
and tlie information will be of
little value.
We can today only make a careful estimate, but that is better
than nothing. The outstanding
feature is that the great exodus of
our young people, unmarried or
newly married, to the United
States has apparently made the
burden of production and tax-
paying heavier to those with dependents.

Provincial Party
Meeting at Alice Arm
Continued from page 1.
The Royal Commission of the
P. G. E, was a Eoyal Farce said
the speaker, and he severely
criticised the deal handed out the
McRae party.
Mr. II. W. M. Rolston of Stewart was the next speaker, and
he commenced by saying, that he
had no personal quarrel with the
present member, Bert Kergin, but
was in the* movement because lie
thought it was the best party.
He stated that a number of
people had no use for him because
they thought lie was an Englishman, but said he was born in
Manitoba and raised on Vancouver
He had attended sittings of the
P. G. E. Royal Commission, and
was satisfied that the Provincial
Party did not get a fair deal. He
denied that either the C. P. R. or
U. S. Timber interests were
supporting the party. He finished
his address, by appealing to those
present to remain after the meeting and form a local branch of the
Provincial Party.

Extracted From Annual
Report of Consolidated
Mining & Smelting Co.
of Trail
Director's Report.
To the Shareholders of tlie Consolidated Mining and Smelting Company of Canada, Ltd.
Your directors submit the
eighteenth annual statement
duly audited, along with the usual reports from the general
manager of mines, the comptroller and the sales manager.
rHic annual statement of the
West Kootenay Power and Light
Company is also exhibited.
After taking care of current
development, depreciation of
plant, depletion of property and
paying interest on bank loans,
the net profits were $2,401,346.-
71 as compared with $1,467,-
528.11 in 1922, and $570,043.77
in 1921.
After providing for bond interest, the remainder, $2,125,-
143.34, was transferred to profit
and loss account.
You will notice that the sum
paid and reserved for taxes
from this remainder amounts to
no less than $443,980.82, or over
4 per cent on your total capitalization. This compares with
$252,881.63 in 1922 and $67,-
724,62 in 1921. It may be said
that this huge levy is because of
large profits, but the profits are
not abnormal considering the
large capitalization and the
hazard inevitably incident to
mining. Moreover, on the basis
of taxation before the war and
on the same profits, the amount
payable this year is six times as
large as it would have been in
pre-war days.
Everyone is clamoring for the
development of our natural resources as the remedy for our
unfortunate financial plight—
and, undoubtedly, the cure must
come from the production of
additional wealth—but primarily there must be some incentive
to start development and, of
course, there must be a margin
over the cost of production.
Your company, having the
plant equipment and mines that
you have, must carry on; but.
what company or group of men
having the large amount of
money needed to make a mine
in British Columbia, will take
the risk of total loss in case of
failure—which happens at least
nine times out of ten—and face
the certainty of practically confiscatory taxation in case of success.
If the provincial and federal
debts were reduced, it would be
a different matter, but that is
not the case.
Therefore, unless and until a
substantial reduction be made
in the rate of taxation of the
mining industry it is not at all
likely that those haying the necessary money will embark in
this very hazardous business.
Meantime, private enterprise
lags and the natural resources of
the province remain dormant.
The year was favorable both
as to production and prices so
far as your lead-zinc-suver production was concerned. In the
early part of the year copper
advanced somewhat in. price,
but it soon receded. Though
copper consumption in America
and the Orient is large, it production is larger still. Unless
Europe stabilizes and becomes
a large purchaser, it is not probable that market prices will appreciate—at all events so long
as the present rate of production is maintained.
On this account very little
progress has been made by the
Allenby Copper Company (the
successor ot the Canada Copper
Corporation) towards the re-

CANADIANS are fortunate in
their National Parka, in that
they have within their borders Alpine scenery which is not
equalled anywhere on the continent, and more, and more they are
realizing that holidays in Canada
hold for the lover of out-of-doors
all the thrills that could be found
anywhere in the world. Jasper
National Park in the Canadian
Rockies, contains many high peaks,
eternally snowcapped, and on the
sides of the mountains are glaciers
which have stood the test of ages.
Millions of tons of ice, stretching in
some instances, almost as far as the
eye can see, lure the adventurous
climber to new attempts, while in
the calm, peaceful valleys wild
game of all kinds live at peace with
mankind and the world.
Additional bungalows for the accommodation of guests are to be
erected at Jasper Park Lodge, the
log-cabin hostelry of the Canadian
National Railways at Jasper National Park, in time for the opening of the 1924 season, it is announced by officials of the Hotel
Department, Canadian National
Railways. During last season the
popularity of Jasper National Park
was so great that the capacity of
Jasper Park Lodge was taxed, and
the  additional   bungalows   being
provided this year will take care of
almost fifty per cent, more guests.
Four 4-room bungalows, each
room with bath, and two 12-room
bungalows, each room also having
private bath, are being erected. In
addition, a double-deck boathouse,
with the upper floor for conventions, and dancing, Is being constructed, and an octagonal curio
building is being built near the
main Lodge. Four new buildings
are being erected to serve as employees' quarters, the kitchens are
being extended and the main -
lounge is being extended to provide
for a ladies' reception room and for
a men's billiard and card room.
