Beautiful Work Display
At Arts and Crafts
Anyox might well be proud of its
second annual Arts and Crafts Exhibition, which was held on October 1st and 2nd in the Gymnasium.
Last year's effort was excellent;
this year's far' outstripped it in
variety and in the number of exhi-
|p bits. It was a display which would
have done credit to any city. The
Community League are to be congratulated on the success of this
venture, which is now an assured
yearly event.
On all sides there was open admiration for the rare skill and painstaking work which was so evident.
Even the school-children were not
to be outdone. Grades 4 and 5
had prepared an Arab Home, complete with neat striped tent sewed
by some industrious little girl.
i Grades 5 and 6 exhibited a Japanese Garden, and there were several
dainty liti^j vases decorated by
school children.
Older folk had gone in for every-
\ thing, from woodwork to woollen
rugs.   There were model ships and
boats, and a coach which carried
one back to Old England.  A group
of desirable little tables caught  the
eye, as did also a beautifully made
cedar chest.   A   small box which
was made by a boy of fifteen from
Anyox cedar  disclosed   skill  and
care.   Needlework abounded. Embroidered    and    crochetted    bedspreads, cushion covers, table covers
and runners were lovely to behold.
Colorful  Afghan quilts,   beautiful
tapestries, Cheneille work, cross-
stitch work, cut work,  and other
varieties of needlework vied with
each   other  for  attention.   There
were hook rugs and rag rugs which
had been executed with wonderful
patience;   hammered brass work,
painted  china,   basket   work and
fretwork the preparation of which
almost amounted to genius.      Dis>
played on the   wall   were   photographs, paintings,    etchings   and
sketches which   were  a  joy  and
delight,   and which reflects great
credit upon their exhibitors.
Expansion of Alice Arm
Goes Steadily On
The telephone rate between Alice
Arm and Anyox over the Dominion
Telegraph Lines is now 25 cents.
1 The former rate was SO cents. The
new scale will be of great advantage to residents of both towns.
The mining industry is at a low
ebb. The prices of all metals are
at historically low levels, but the
residents of Alice Arm are full of
optimism for the future. When
prices again reach normal levels this
district will be active, and the permanent residents of the town are
showing their faith in the district
by erecting new buildings and en
larging existing ones.
W. B. Bower is constructing a
new residence on his farm adjacent to the Kitsault bridge. Three
rooms comprise the ground floor
and there is ample space for a
similar number upstairs. The
building is being neatly finished
both inside and out.
A. McGuire and family who
operate a farm near the Illiance
river recently moved in their large
new residence. The walls of this
building are composed of logs and
is an imposing structure.
T. Calfa iss-busily engaged in
adding 2 rooms to his residence adjoining the Herald Block on Victoria Street. This addition gives a
much larger frontage to the building.
P. Morley also constructed a new
residence during the past summer.
It has an ideal location facing
Victoria Street at the north end
near the bridge.
Gus Anderson, proprietor of the
Kitsault Cafe recently completed
the construction of a building at
the rear of the cafe. It will be
used for storage purposes.
B. Turbitt has also recently completed the construction of a new
barn on the north end of the Kitsault road. A blacksmith shop has
also been installed for repairs on his
cars, etc.
Several other people have also
made minor improvements to their
Dr. James and Sid Peters
Will Play Golf Final
Local golf "dope" was com
pletely upset on Sunday last, when
the semi-finals for the Men's Open
Championship were played. Contrary to general expectations, Gordon James beat C. O. Fricker,
turning the trick at the twentieth
hole, Jack MacConnachie defeated
Fred Brown. In the game on TueS'
day between James and MacConnachie the former won four up and
two to go, and is now qualified to
meet Sid Peters, the present holder
of the championship.
For the possession of the Loves-
ted Cup for the month of September, Captain Johnstone and Gordon
James are tied. The play-off will
be held shortly.
Directors of Esperanza Mines
Visit Property
Norman Fraser, Angus MacDonald and Capt. Robert Fenton
directors of the Esperanza Mines
Ltd. arrived at Altesfftftn on Monday and spent a few days here during the week examining the Esperanza mine, leaving on Wednesday.
Capt. Fenton is an alderman for
the City of New Westminster and it
was his first visit to Alice Arm.
In regard to the re-commencement of operations at the mine, the
directors stated that no immediate
plans had yet been made, but it
was hoped that definite plans for
future operations would shortly be
decided upon.
Archie MacDougall Will Play
For B. C. University
Prince Rupert Court Throws
Out Case
The case against Anton Kostelec,
who was charged with entering a
dwelling-house by night with intent
to commit an indictable offence, as
reported in last week's Herald,
was tried in Prince Rupert County
Court on Wednesday before Judge
F. M. Young, and was dismissed.
The B. C. University Football
team, playing in First League Football in Vancouver and District, will
include this year Archie MacDougall, Anyox full-back. From his
consistent showing here during the
past two seasons Archie well
deserves a place on Varsity, and his
fellow-players and all football fans
in Anyox offer their congratulations
and good wishes.
On Friday, October 23rd, the
Catholic Ladies will try out the
idea of holding a straight Card
Party, instead of the usual Card
party and Dance. As an added
attraction they will hold a Tombola,
a prize being given for a lucky
number appearing on some ticket
amongst those given at the door.
After the cards refreshments will be
served. An activo committee
assures a good time for everyone.
Extensive Work Done
On Govt. Telegraph
Lines Locally
The government telegraph line
between Anyox and Alice Arm and
between Alice Arm and Aiyansh is
in a better state now than at any
previous time states Mr. J. C.
Studdy, telegraph operator at Alice
Tbis is due to the decision of the
Government Telegraphs Department to give their patrons the best
possible service, and at the same
time relieve as much as possible
local unemployment.
On the section between Anyox
and Alice Arm, six men have been
employed under the supervision of
J. C. Studdy, for about six weeks.
Over six miles of new line have
been constructed, on which was
used three quarters of a ton of
copper wire. New poles have been
provided and a new right-of-way
cut. A new submarine cable has
also been installed on the Granby
shore. This cable eliminates a big
overhead span which was an interference to navigation.
Between Alice Arm and Aiyansh
seven men in charge of Wm. McLean have been employed for the
past two months, and will complete
their work next week. On this
section 22 miles of new line have
been rebuilt, necessitating new
poles and right-of-way. Four miles
of new galvanized iron wire have
also been strung.
In addition to this work, H. B,
Butler, operator at Aiyansh has
also had a crew of men at work on
the line between Aiyansh and Alice
Arm. The extensive work done
this year will eliminate many breakages from heavy snows during the
winter months, and help to popularize the government telegraphs as a
means of communication. The
Telegraphs Department is to be
congratulated also on their efforts
to do as much work as possible
this year. Those employed being
in a better position to face the winter than otherwise would have been
the case.

Duthie Mining Company
Shareholders Are
Assessed 2c.
Unless shareholders on record as
at September 19 come through to
the extent of two cents for each
share held, they stand to lose all
their vested interest, according to
a circular recently issued by the
Duthie Mines Company. While
the circular is dated September 10,
it did not reach some shareholders
until September 22, and this gave
them very little time in which to
make up their minds or make an
appeal against the ruling of the
directors at a meeting held in
Vancouver on September 10.
It has been stated that while J,
P. Duthie took up the mortgage of
$13,454.56 expiring on September
10th,   there   were    some    strong
strings attached, and from the
notice arriving in Smithers it
would appear that this consists of
an ultimatum to shareholders to
pay two cents per share before the
annual meeting on September 30
to reimburse Mr. Duthie for his
outlay made in the name protecting the ordinary shareholders."
In addition to the sum mentioned above, there are other liabilities
not stated in the list turned over
to the Credit Men's Association,
and which brings the total up to
$22,464.34. Inoluded in the list
are items of salaries due J. L. Mc
Ewen of $750 and $993.50 to A
G. Hattie.
"What is your lodger?"
"A great inventor."
"Really. What has he invented?"
