Annual   Sports   Rally
Was Best Ever Held
By A. C. L.
Complete success attended the
Annual Sports Rally which was
held in the Gymnasium ou Monday evening, November 19th. The
affair was sponsored by the Mine
and Beaoh branches of the Anyox
Community League, and over two
hundred persons were entertained
as guests of the league.
A programme of vocal and musical events was carried out, several
brief speeches were made, and the
various basketball, baseball and
softball trophies won during the
past season were presented to the
winning teams and members.
These presentations included the
Senior A and Senior B basketball
trophies, the Granby baseball
trophy, and the softball trophy.
In addition to these there were individual prizes for "A" and "B"
Basketball players, for the winners
of the Softball League, viz., the
Adanacs, and* for Elks' Baseball
team. An interesting event was
the presentation by Mr. J. L. Stewart of the trophy cup emblematic
of the Northern B. C. Basketball
championship. This cup, donated
by Mr. S. Jabour, Northern representative of the Sun Life Assurance
Company, was received by ,Mr.
Don MacLeod on behalf of Auyox,
whioh town won the cup in the
series of games played during the
season 1933-34.
Mr* McNicholas referred briefly
to the excellent baseball which had
been witnessed during the past
season, and the sportsmanship of
the Elks' team, the winners. Mr.
Dodsworth, one of the basketball
commissioners, made an appeal to
those present to rally round the
game, and to the players to be
good sportsmen for the sake of the
game itself and the healthy reore
ation it provided.
Mr. Maxwell apologized for the
absence of Mr. Booking, who had
intended to be present but was prevented by stress of business. Mr.
Maxwell spoke on behalf of sport,
especially baseball, and expressed
the earnest hope that we would all
be here next year and enjoy our
sports as we always have done.
Mr. R. L. Healy, in a neat
speech, stated that this was the
biggest and best banquet of the
kind so far held. It was a fitting
climax to the year's sports activities. All our sports were well
patronized in the past year, he
stated, and would continue to be
supported if the games were  well
Entertainment Enjoyed
At Sports Rally
Talent in plenty featured the
annual Sports Rally, which was
held in the Gymnasium on Monday
evening last, by the Beach and
Mine Branches of the Community
League.' Chairman Manning lost
no time iu getting the entertainment under way.
A fine start was made by S. Anderson, who gave some piano ac-
cordian solos. This artist is versatile and accomplished, and was
oalled upon again later in the evening. W. Thompson sang "Vienna''
and "Flying Trapeze," in good
style. Messrs Buntain, White and
Heywood pleased everyone with
their Hawaiian trio. Jack Pinckney sang, in fine voice "When
Irish Eyes are Smiling," and R.
Brown was in excellent voice, in
"Dinah" and a vocal number by
Morgan Flye was much appreciated. . E. R. Oatman gave an original
reoitation, based on an actual incident during one of the baseball
games of the past season, which
brought down the house.
Mr. F. Dresser was the accom
panist. A most enjoyable evening
was brought to a closei with the
singing of "God  Save the King."
Oddfellows'  and Rebekahs'
Card Party and Dance
A very successful Card Party and
Dance was held by the Oddfellows
and Rebekahs on Friday evening,
November 16th. Bridge and Whist
were played during the first part of
the evening. The Whist prizes
went to: Mrs. C. Eklof, Mrs. A.
Croxford, Mr. V. Watson and Mr.
R. Fox. Those for Bridge going
to: Mrs. W. Barbour, Mrs. D.
Boyd, Mr. J. Currie and Mr. H.
A delicious supper was followed
by dancing the music being furnished by Wilson Reid's Orchestra and
they deserve credit for assisting to
make the evening the great success
rit was. The following old time
dances were very popular: the
French Minuet, old time Waltz and
Military Two-Step. A large number
of people were present. The proceeds have been added to the Oddfellows' and Rebekahs' Children's
Christmas Tree Fund.
played. Mr. T. N. Youngs spoke
of the encouragement which soft-
ball had received. An ambitious
schedule of games had been carried
out. the public had given the game
splendid support, and even the
weather had been allied on our side.
Chrysanthemum Coons
Will Present Two
A real treat awaits Anyox people
at the two concerts which will be
presented shortly by the Mine
Chrysanthemum Coons, under the
direction of Mr- T. H. Bamforth.
It will be remembered that this
lively company of blackface minstrels gave two concerts last season
which were most enjoyable. From
advance information, the concerts
now being arranged will be even
better than previous ones. The
dates are: November 29th. Mine
Hall; December 3rd. Recreation
The repertoire of this troop is
quite varied, several of the members having excellent solo voices
as well as being talented in other
ways. At this particular time a
good dose of laugh medicine will be
good for everybody, and we oan
promise that there will be plenty
of hearty laughs. These coons
have a habit of working in some
comical reference^ to local oele-
brities. Watch A out for these;
Keep one of those dates open and
you will be glad you did so.
Alice Arm Would Feel Loss
Of Anyox
The closing of ths Anyox plant
by the Granby Company, would
adversely affeot Alice Arm in a
good many ways.    Many people
of the latter town, however, are
hoping that mining operations will
commence on a fairly large scale
next year, so that steamship transportation facilities will not be interrupted. Many also feel that
some company will operate the
Anyox smelter as a customs smelter
as. soon as ore tonnage is available
in the north.
The Alice Arm people have enjoyed the Anyox banking facilities,
also the hospital and doctors, dentist, optometrist and watch repairer, Government Agent, Granby
Company Stores, machine shops
eto. It is not until these things
are removed that they are missed.
Alice Arm Children To Enjoy
Christmas Tree   •
A meeting of the ladies of Alice
Arm was held at the School House
on Wednesday for the purpose of
making arrangements for the annual
Children's Christmas Tree and entertainment. It was decided to
hold the event at the Alice Arm
Hotel on Wednesday evening, December 19th. commencing at 7 p.m.
The ladies elected to make the
necessary arrangements were as
follows: Christmas Tree, Mrs. W.
M. Cummings and Mrs. O. Evindsen; Entertainment Miss E. Dodsworth; Refreshments, Mrs. J. Gra
ham and Mrs. E. Petersen.
A collection to defray expenses
will be taken up amongst the parents, and a collecting box placed at
the Post Office so that everyone
will have an opportunity to donate
Any contribution, however small,
will be appreciated.
Surprise Party for   Bruce
Loudon On 21st. Birthday
Young people of Anyox descended upon the Loudon home last
Thursday and took the house by
storm. The oooasion was the com
ing out of Bruce who att•linec his
21st. year on that day. Between
30 and 40 of the younger set took
the family completely by surprise
and general merriment and laugh
ter ruled the rest of the evening.
Delightful refreshments were
served by young ladies who had
made themselves responsible for
this indispensible part of the program. Games and dancing prevailed for a large part of the evening.
In congratulating Bruce on attaining his majority, Arthur Teabo
presented him with a Rolls razor
as a gift from the assembly and
voiced the opinion of those present
in commenting oh the popularity
of the reoipient.
No Frost,  No Snow, Not
Much Rain
Thanks are hereby extended to
all those who so kindly assisted at
the shower held on behalf of Miss
Doris Gallagher recently. Special
mention is made of the kindness of
Mrs. 0. L. Jacobson, Miss M. Jacob-
son and Mrs. J. Carr.
The Herald is S2.00 a year.
Usually, at this time of the year
Alice Arm and Anyox is blanketed
under a covering of snow, but this
year we are enjoying mild weather
and an entire absence of snow. So
far we have enjoyed one of the best
fall seasons on record. The rainfall
has been considerably below normal, and an absence of frost has
been appreciated. The fine open
fall will shorten our usually long
winter, whatever happens during
the next few months.
Ted Kergin, accompanied by
Stan Dalby, arrived from Anyox on
Saturday and spent the week-end
with his mother at Alice Arm.
Basketball Games   On
Wednesday Were
A 51-17 score, with the Elks on
the receiving end, gives a fair impression of Wednesday's A game-
The boys in green simply took it
away, done up brown and wrapped
up nicely. The Elks were evidently
under the impression that referee
Lazorek was their only opponent.
The Trojans proved differently.
The fraternal boys had to be
warned on the floor. This little
touch seemed to leave the fans cold.
Warning the Elks is no longer
news. Dresser junior gave a display of scoring skill and boosted
the Trojan score by nineteen points.
Gillies drew down 15, while Arne
speared 10.
The Elks were rattled all the
way and simply handed the game
to the youngsters.
The girls' game was slow until
the last quarter, when the Mine
girls seemed to change into high
gear. Eating up the Spooks' lead
they forced the game to a score
that was uncertain to the final
minute. The Spooks bagged the
game on lucky baskets.
The B game was interesting only
in the final few minutes. The enjoyable part was in watching the
fans snap out of deep slumber as
the score became close.
To give the boys credit, the
Foundry certainly deserved the
game. Senior B. Foundry: Patrick 2, Ferguson, Deeth, Hamilton
2, Scott 15, Church 6. Total 25.
Vandals B: Heinkey 5, White
10, Cowell 2, Whittaker, Southey
7, McDonnell.   Total 24.

Anyox Memorial Service
For Late King
A Memorial Service for his late
Majesty, King Alexander 1, of
Jugo-Slovakia, was held in Christ
Church on Sunday afternoon, November 11th. by members of the
Orthodox Church. Rev. A. Abraham gave a sermon befitting the
occasion, also a brief outline ot the
late king's life and career. Mr. E.
Volkovich said a few prayers in the
Serbian language and the "Last
Post" and "Reveille" were played
by Mr. E. R. Oatman. A large
number of people attended the
service. ALICE    AR.M   AND ANY02!   HEKALD.  Saturaay. November 24,   1934

Second Article Dealing
With Contracts By
C. M. Stewart
Anyox Close-down Will
Be Big Loss to Province
The closing of the Anyox mines,
and big ore reduction plant of
the Granby Company sometime
next year, is not only a severe blow
to this district, but the ill-effects
will be felt throughout the province
Everyone loses, including the
shareholders of the Granby Company, the employees, transportation
companies, wholesale houses and
manufacturers of all kinds, for the
Granby Company purchased supplies
in excess of 81,250,000 per year.
The government will lose heavily in
taxes, including the royalty tax on
ore, fuel oil tax, income tax on employees, liquor store profits and
property tax. In addition to loss
of taxes 1200 men will be thrown
out of work by the time the closedown is complete, and a percentage
of these will be shortly in receipt of
relief funds. If the Anyox plant is
dismantled and completely deserted
Alice Arm will be an isolated mining
outpost, unless mining development
takes a spurt next year. The closing down of Anyox is a blow that
will take the north coast many years
to recover from, for big mines are
not very often developed to a stage
where they will employ from 1000
to 1200 men continuously for over
twenty years, such as the Hidden
Creek Mine has done.
Art Beaudin Missed a Step
With Painful Results
Direct representations will be
made by the B, C. government to
Ottawa for a share of the federal
tax on gold production, it is learned
at the legislative buildings. Ontario and Quebec have already made
similar representations.
Following is the second article
dealing with "Contracts" written
by Mr. C. M. Stewart, and further
explains the responsibilities of the
contracting parties.
In our last article we saw that
there were five essentials to a valid
contract. The lirst of these was
Offer and Acceptance.
The study of Offer and Acceptance
breaks itself up into nine different
headings and we are going to deal
with these, as space permits, illustrating them with actual cases.
The nine headings are as follows:
1; Every contract springs from
the acceptance of an offer.
2. An offer or its acceptance or
both may be made, either by words
or by conduct.
3. An offer is made when, and
not until, it is communicated to the
4. Acceptance must be communicated by words or conduct.
5. Acceptance is communicated
when it is made in the manner prescribed or indicated by the offerer.
6. Offer creates no legal rights
until acceptance, but may lapse or
be revoked.
7. An offer need not be made
to an ascertained person, but no
contract can arise until it has been
accepted by an ascertained person.
8. An offer must be intended to
create and capable of creating legal
9. Acceptance must be absolute
and must correspond with the terms
of the offer.
We will try by illustrations to
bring these groups of cases a little
closer home.
Dealing with the first one we
find that the process of offer and
acceptance may take place in one of
three ways.
First it may consist of an offer of
an act in return for a promise. The
operating of a  public street car is
A. Beaudin is on the way to recovery after several days of severe
pain. He was carrying a flock of
dishes some days ago, clearing up
after the Native Sons banquet.
Coming down the steps at the hall,
his feet went from under him and
he hit the steps with considerable
force. He had to stay in bed for a
few days but is getting around now.
He does not know' what became of
the dishes—Terrace News.
a constant offer by its owners of
the act of carrying you as a passenger and if you ride in the car it is
an acceptance by you of their terms
and a promise to pay in return for
their act of carrying you.
Secondly offer and acceptance
may consist of a promise for an act.
A man offers a reward for his lost
dog. This is a promise to pay in
return for the act of bringing back
the dog and forms a binding contract.
Thirdly the offer and acceptance
may consist of two promises as
where I offer to pay you at some
future date if at that time you will
perform certain services for me.
Your promise to do so in return for
my promise to pay forms a valid
The offer and acceptance may be
in writing, they may be by word of
mouth and sometimes we find a contract where the offer and acceptance consist of conduct only.
If I send you goods and you
accept them and consume them a
binding contract is made, even if no
order had ever been placed. The
sending of the goods constitutes
the offer and use or consumption of
them is considered at law as a legal
acceptance of the offer contained in
the sending of them and you will
have to pay for them.

By Strawberry Flats and the Silver Daisy
1— falls about S mile* Irom Hope
*—On the trail
The little village of Hope, situated on the Fraser River
about one hundred miles from the coast, is the
starting point for all mountaineers wishing to reach the
interior of British Columbia by the trail route. It is a
scattered village of about two hundred inhabitants but
possessing both an abundance of natural beauty and
a truly romantic past. The village is flanked on one side
by the noble Fraser river, while from the other side one
looks up three wide draws in the mountain ranges.
The one to the left is the beautiful Coquihalla valley
through which the turbulent Coquihalla river cascades
from a pass unmatched for rugged grandeur. Through
this pass too, under innumerable snow sheds and
tunnels the Kettle Valley Railway goes to Princeton
and the inteiS>r. In the centre is an opening for the
Nicolum river, to the right is the Silver Creek draw
and beyond it the snow-capped peaks of the Cascade
The mountain trail over the Hope Pass is the old one
known as the Dewdney which was surveyed and partly
built for twenty-five miles out of Hope, by English
Sappers in 1861. It winds up the Coquihalla River for
a short distance, then branches off with the Nicolum. a
tributary of the former river. The way lies through
Sylvan glades, past rushing waterfalls and over rustic
bridges, the old dry "cribbing" of which is as firm as the
day when it was laid.
The first feeding ground for horses is at 12 Mile Lake
—otherwise known as Divide Lake at an altitude of
2300 feet. This lake is the head waters of the Nicolum
river. Here there is a beautiful hay meadow owned by a
trapper and prospector who is patiently awaiting the
day when the transprovincial road will give him a means
of transporting hi» wealth, in the shape of hay, to outside
At 22 Mile there Is another beautiful camping spot.
Here there is a large cabin situated in the forest's heart
on the very banks of the Skagit river. The owner of it
carries on prospecting and mining operations in the
vicinity He appropriately calls his cabin "Defiance
Camp" and his mine "The Silver Daisy."
?rom here on for many miles the scenery becomes
more wonderful, if that were possible, but at the same
time more wild and rugged. The Pass, a narrow hallway
bounded by I'liils thousands of feet high, is a sight of
nev"r-en<ling marvel. At one spot, known as Skagit
Vlvffs, the trail (a bare 18 inches wide) winds around the
l—The Summit
4—Defiance Gamp
shoulder of a cliff which towers above and drops away
a sheer one thousand feet to the bed of the river below.
Then the trail once more drops down to the next
feeding grounds at Cayuse Flats which has a lister spot
three miles farther on—Cedar Flats. Beyond Cedar
Flats lies a long strip of heavy cedar timber, a true
"forest primeval" Strawberry Flats, a pleasant open
field on the Skagit river at a height of 8700 feet is the last
stopping place before the actual ascent to the summit
begins. Here, in spite of the high altitude, wild strawberries grow in abundance.
In the next 2300 feet (of the perpendicular of course I)
one is led to the summit by a series of switchbacks zigzagging up the face of the mountain. The river, which at
the foot appeared a torrent, is here a tiny stream,
a mere trickle over the stones. Below, the ever-tasting
hills unroll themselves for a hundred miles of valley and
When the summit itself is attained a sight never to be
forgotten appears. A wide open meadow lies- in an
inverted crown on the mountain top. Around its edge
rise whitish cliffs scarcely distinguishable from the many
snow banks. And everywhere, even beside the snow,
grows a bewildering variety of wild flowers.
In the centre of the depression lie two lakes, the
dividing of the waters, for from the one goes the Skagit
river towards the sea and from the other flows the Whip
Saw Creek towards the interior lakes.
As soon as the descent of the eastern slope is begun
a great change is noticeable. The grade is easy and
steady, the country becomes more open and is dear of
the under-brush and ferns so characteristic of the western
The last camp is twenty miles from Princeton but the
last nine miles of that distance are covered by a good
moter road, the beginning of the proposed Trans-
provincial-highway from Princeton to Hope.
About eight miles from Princeton is a wonderfully
interesting spot where stratified rocks yielding excellent
fossils remains are located on the side of the hill.
Shortly after this the valley opens out before one-
Princeton snuggled peacefully into a friendly circle of hills
and its two rivers, the Similkameen and Tulameen
keeping guard over it. Beyond it, rises a splendid vista
of rolling green foothills with more rugged mountains
closer in, indicative of the districts most flourishing
industries, ranching and mining.

Ivor Davis
Ivor has been a dyed-in-the-wool
basketballer so long that few of the
old timers can stick him with tall
stories of past performances.
Though playing with some of
the best teams ever produced in
Anyox he has never shone brilliantly until this season. Always rated
as a steady dependable forward in
any team, his performances to date
this year make him stand out of
the current crop like a  sore thumb.
Consistently high scores and a
fighting spirit that has had its effect
on his present team, earns him a
place in our local basketballers' hall
of fame.
His peppery and mischievious
temperament has reduced many a
referee to grinding his teeth in despair and gains the delighted and
enthusiastic approval of the fans.

The time has come when the economic difficulties with which all
countries are faced should be called
by their real names, which are the
existing barriers to the free interchange of goods and services between nations. We do not underestimate the difficulties in the way
of removing these barriers, but even
a first beginning cannot be made
until agreement is reached among
the leading nations to re-establish
an international standard of exchange value, and stick to it. No
country will agree to bind itself in
the matter of export and import
restrictions if its entire tariff system
is to be made meaningless from one
day to the next by a sudden change
in the value of one or another of the
important world currencies.—International Chamber of Commerce.
