Commemoration Service
Held at Anyox
Armistice Day Service held in
Recreation Hall
A United Service was held in
Ihe Recreation Hall, Anyox, on
ISunday last, in commemoration of
Ihe signing of the Armistice, which
Imded the greatest conflict . the
Ivorld has ever seen. A large
joiigregation assembled "to keep
ihe memory green" of the boys
whoso nobly gave their lives for
the cause of liberty and justice.
The singing was led by a united
choir under the conductorship of
Mr. W. F. Eve.
Tho Service commenced with the
singing of the hymn; "0 God our
lielpin ages past." Prayer was
offered by Rev. J. Herdman, and
Ensign Reader read the 46th.
The . first speaker was Ensign
Reader, who based her remarks oh
the first verse of the opening hymn.
She emphasised the great need for
Trust in God at all times. She
recalled incidents from her own
experience during war time, of how
the bereaved were comforted by
this trust, when they received the
sad news that their boy had "gone
west." She concluded with an
earnest appeal to the audience to
put their, trust in the Lord.:
Miss. M. McColl's rendering of
"In Flanders' Fields" is worthy of
comment. Simple though these
verses are, effective interpretation
is difficult, but Miss CoColl proved
herself equal to the occasion. Most
feelingly giving voice to those who
'"sleep beneath the poppies red"
and proving herself to be an elocutionist worth hearing.
The Rev. J. Herdman rendered
"The Answer" in a manner which
showed he was a past master in
the dramatic art.
The Rev. J. B. Gibson was the
next speaker. He said in part: as
there has never been a Calvary
without a Resurreotion, so, today
we are passing through the birth
pangs of a new era that has commenced to dawn. What that new
era is going to be depended upon
us. Our present foundation is not.
solid enough to carry the great
superstructure and the problems
confronting us today is to strength
en the foundation. We are too
much engrossed in material things
and many of us have lost our grip
on religion. The gospel of Service
ha#been forgotten. If we are to
prosper in the future we must have
faith. The world is saved by that
intangible something we call faith.
Our temporal salvation as well as
our eternal salvation depends on
faith. Faith does not come from
the wealth of a nation. It. is faith
and vision which produce wealth.
This faith which is the mainspring
of every enterprise is derived
through the Christain religion.
If the future is going to be what
God intends it should be, we must
give more thought to spiritual,
ThaRev. _J.„ Herdman.. StagJbhe
next speaker, ami the following is
an outline of his address. In
August, 1914, the ejres of the
world turned towards London,
England, where a number of
statesmen were holding conference,
discussing one of the most momen-
tious problems- with which any
country had ever been faced. The
world waited for their word, which,
when spoken, clarified the whole of
Christendom, unsheathed the
sword and set the cannon roaring.
Feeling, for years buried deep 4n
the human breast rose to the surface. Selfishness was dethroned,
service exalted: lightness of heart
was set aside for grim care.
Empty show and make' belief, for
stern realities. Cbnifort and pleasure, for separation and sacrifice,
and men's thoughts turned towards
God. Those who previously never
prayed, were found on their knees.
Great issues were at stake, personal sacrifices were to be made, and
the people felt the need of God.
It was always so at the approach
of danger, humanity naturally
looks to heaven to help But how
surprisingly soon we forget.
The offertory was taken up by
Messrs. Moeran, Graham, Sutherland and Ployart.
The meeting concluded with the
singing of the National Anthem
and the pronouncing of the Benediction by the Rev. J. Herdman.
Ownership of Engineer
Mine Not Settled
The' recent decision of the supreme court in favor of the heirs
of Captain J. Alexander, and the
notice of appeal, which* it is
believed, will take the case ultim
ately before the Privy Council,
marked another stage in the long
drawn out legal battle waged for
the control of the famous Engineer
mine. ^ The claims are on the east
side of Taku Arm, fifteen miles
from Atlin, and are said to be the
richest in free gold in the world,
with a valuation of three million
Cheque for $124.00
is Presented to School
Board of Alice Arm
By the Local Women's
At the weekly meeting of the
Local Women's Council of Alice
Arm, held last Saturday afternoon,
in the Old School House, a cheque
for $124.00 was presented by the
president of the Council, Mrs. D|. >
S. Cameron, to the trustees of the
School Board, to do with it as they
saw fit. Mr. J. M. Morrison and
Mr. C. P. Riel were present, and
accepted the donation on behalf of
the School Board.
Mrs. D. S. Cameron, in presenting the cheque, said:
Gentlemen of the Trustees Board;
On behalf of the Local Council of
Women, I extend yoil' a cordial
welcome to our meeting. You
have been invited here today to
receive from us, if you will,'' a sum
of money that has been raised by
us by way of a social entertainment
and -which has bee^Foted by this
organization to your Board, for the
purpose of providing necessary
furnishings ' for our new school.
We hope that it will be acceptable
by you, and in the same spirit in
which it is offered. We, as an organization have only one aim in
view, and that is to be of the greatest service possible to the community in which we have" our homes.
I therefore ask you in the name of
the Council to accept this -cheque
for the sum of $124.00. In conclusion, I feel sure that I express the
thoughts of every member of this
body, when I say that we are highly satisfied with our school and the-
manner in which you, as trustees
have carried out your duties. I
thank you gentlemen for your
Homestake Mining Co.
Paying Wages
Some of the men who were working for the Homestake Mining Co.
this year, at the Kitsault Glacier,
after waiting several weeks for
their wages, received them this
week. Not all the men, however,
have received their wages, but it is
hoped that now the company have
started to pay up they will not
stop until the last dollar is paid.
. A lien was pqt on the mine some
time ago by the men who had
wages due, and this is evidently
what the company is trying to pay
If flies are flies because they fly,
And fleas are fleas because they flee,
Then bees are bees because they be.
Smoker Held at
Anyox was a
Great Success
The smoker held on Wednesday
evening under the auspices of the
Anyox Community League proved
to be one of the best smokers ever
staged in Anyox. The Dempsey-
Carpentier fight pictures proved a
great attraction and in addition to
this treat a good card of local
talent was staged.
Al.*LaFortune won the first fall
in the wrestling match and before
a second fall was obtained the
time limit had expired.
The boxing bouts made up of
local talent were up to their usual
high standard and Anyox is to be
congratulated on having such a
good buhch of exponents of the
fistic art.
The blind-fold battle royal of the
four local juveniles was the chief
item that tickled the fancy of the
audience, and was full of pep from
start to finish. One of the gladiators was knocked dowij-andwas
counted out of the fight.
The Dempsey-Carpentier fight
pictures Were very clear and the
movements of both fighters could
be plainly followed. • The training-
was very interesting an instructive
to the young pugilists of the town.
The pictures showed that Carpen-
tier was.game and full of fight, but
could not stand the punishment of
his more rugged opponent.   ■
The smoker was a great success.
There were lots of smokes of all
kinds, and 'the orchestra was Jn the
pink of condition. The admission
price was 75 cents and when it is
considered that it cost that much
in other towns to see the pictures
alone, the people of Anyox can congratulate themselves on the fact
that they enjoyed a privilege not
obtained in many places.
Fifteen enthusiasts of Alice Arm
made the trip down on the Awake,
and all were well pleased with the
evening's entertainment.

Cameron received a consignment of
100 poppies on-Thursday, and Mrs.
T. W. Falconer kindly consented

ably assisted by Miss Nettie Hogs-
berg, The ladies had no trouble
in disposing of the little red emblems and could have sold many
more if they had been available.
The sum of $30.00 was realized.
The poppies that were on. sale
throughout Canada . yesterday,
were made in France, by French
war orphans, and part of the proceeds of the sale of the flowers will

The Kitsault River
Wing Dam.
The need of a longer wing dam
•on the Kitsault River w.as again
brought sharply to the notice of
the residents of Alice Arm this fall.
On two different occasions the
people of the town left their homes
on the flat and slept at the Hotel,
for fear the water might break
through and sweep their homes far
down the bay.
The recent disaster at' Britannia
Beach should convince everyone of
N the danger of a rushing torrent of
water. No one dares to prophesy
what damage would be done or
how many lives would be lost if
the Kitsault River broke through
into the town when it was in flood,
especially if it was to happen in
the middle of the night.
It is clear to everyone that the
dam should be strengthened and
made longer and the best time to
do such work is in the winter,
when the water is low in the river.
The work can then be done much
more efficiently and cheaper than
in the spring after the snow starts
to melt
By doing the work this coming
winter,, it will help relieve the
unemployed problem of the town.
It is therefore of benefit both to
the government and the citizens of
Alice Arm to have the wqrk done
this winter. Due to the closing
down of the Dolly Varden mine
there is not going to be an over
abundance of work in the Alice
Arm district, this winter. We
hear of all kinds of schemes to
solve the unemployed problem in
the south, but no one seems to
bother about what becomes of the
people in the north during six
months of winter. Our southern
friends undoubtedly imagine we
hole-up like the bears at the
approach of winter and lay dormat
until the ground is bare again in the
The lengthening of the wing
dam is work that can be done to
greater advantage in the winter
than, in the summer, and it should
,therefore be done.
The total output of coal for the
month of September, from the
Cassidy mine of the Granby Company, was 22,740 tons.
The Pessimist vs.
The Optimist.
The Pessimists are working
double pressure these days, and
their efforts are worthy of a better
cause. Their tales of hardship,
starvation and stagnation that is
coming this winter, have nearly
made some of our most optimistic
citizens wonder if they are right.
Don't worry; this epedemic comes
every year about this time, and is
due chiefly to the damp cheerless
weather. Don't be too impatient;
the mining camps all over the
country are at present .marking
time and Anyox and Alice Arm
are no exceptions to the general
Meeting of the Forum
Department of the
A. v •L.
A very interesting meeting was
held in the Anyox Community
League Library, on Saturday
evening, October 29th, under the
heading of Forum Department,
of which department, Mr. Armour,
President of the League, is chairman. Those present were: R.
Armour, (chairman) Mrs. Hoffman,
Mrs. Lambert, Miss Reader, Rev.
Herdman, and Messrs. Pinder-Moss,
Sherman, Sawrey, Dryden, Kob-
loth, Blauey, Southam, Hart,
DeRedder, Esplin, Lambert, McAllister, and secretary Fred Brown.
The chairman opened the meeting by giving as its object, the discussion on the necessity of new
books for the library. A reading
circle for the winter months and
the matter of debates and lectures.
Mr. Armour read over a list of
books from the library of the Industrial. Welfare Society of Great
Britain, and Mr. Pinder-Moss
asked the chairman if it were
possible for each one at the meeting to receive a copy of this list.
The chairman replied that this
would be possible.
Mr. J. Blaney asked if it were
possible to procure Sir Wilfred
Laurier's speeches in book form, as
Sir Wilfred was known as one of
the finest speakers Canada ever
produced, besides being the premier
of Canada for twelve years.
Mr. Pinder-Moss thought this
information could be obtained from
the Department of State, at
Ottawa. Mr. Pinder-Moss also
suggested the following books for
.     (
the Library: Silent Lands, The
Habitant, Alice in Wonderland,
The Little Visitors, Seven Seas,
The Jungle Book and Barrack
Room Ballards. ,
Mr. Herdman said that several
books on Playe'ts had already been
sent for, so that Mr. Ed. Yard
would again have, an opportunity
of appearing before the Anyox
public. Mr." Yard gave several
entertainments to the people of
Anyox about three years ago, and
those who seen them are high in
the praise of Ed's talent.
Mrs. Hoffman gave some valuable
information on past experience in
Anyox on library matters, and
suggested that an effort 'be made
to exchange some of the books in
the library with /some outside
source of supply.
Considerable discussion of various
matters followed, including the
staging of a series of lectures and
debates this coming winter.
The spirit exhibited by all at the
meeting was splendid, and it is
hoped that those who could not
attend will be1 present at the next
meeting to assist with. this very
entertaining and educational work.

Itocks of Copper Shrink
! A dispatch from New York says:
3opper metal has advanced fully
cents a pound since the improvement in the market set in a few
peeks ago.   This advance in price
the  direct result of increased
lemand, but in  addition to this,
lie statistical position of the industry is of interest.   This has shown'
| steady improvement of late, and
|he Iron Trade Review has publish-
figures   which   bear  out  this
loint.    Producers  have cut their
lutput severely, both in the United
Rtates and South America, current
Imelter output  in  this   country
leing at the rate of about 12 per
lent of the. 1920 rate,  while the
South American output is at the
rate of about 46 per cent, of 1020.
In all, new supplies of copper in
North and South America are
amounting to about 20,000 tons
monthly. Sales in September
amounted to 48,500 tons. Shipments have been going forward at
the rate of 35,000 to 40,000 tons a

The once beautiful trees around Anyox
Stand dreary, dead and still;
The're numbered by hundreds of thousands,
On many a distant hill.
Their once beautiful proud heads are lowered,
In silent grief and shame;
They stand there dead and lonely,
Just trees without a name.
They stand upright in their nakedness,
Like a sentinel gassed at his post;
The winter snow drifts on their limbs,
And shrouds them like a ghost.  «.
God made the beautiful countryside;
Man mars the work he has done;
The smelter belches its sulphurous fumes,    .
So that the plant can run.
Copper is worth more than timber;
That's why the trees are dead;
That's why they stand forlorn and sod,
And hang their drooping head.

*l ask from ell the people of Canada an, earnest review of the real issue before Canada to-day. 1 at*:
from men and -women a calm, thoughtful consideration of serious public questions j find, so far at I
tun concerned myself, task not favors but fairness."—ARTHUR MEIGHEN.
T17TOMEN OF CANADA, the coming General Election will be one of the most
W momentous in Canadian history, and Arthur Meighen asks YOU to give the issue
fair, unbiassed consideration.
Women and men alike are called upon to decide whether political, industrial and
economic stability is to be replaced by class rule, political and industrial chaos and
possible economic bankruptcy.
The facts are clear, and every Canadian woman will do her own thinking. She will
not be misled by others. She* will not blindly follow family political precedent, neither
will she be carried away by the false theories or empty "isms" of theorists and extremists. Every woman will arrive at a personal decision by the application of
practical common sense.
The great issue is the Tariff and here are briefly the facts.
The present Canadian Tariff, se far as it affects the necessaries of life, is a very
moderate one. It is simply a tariff maintained to keep Canadian factories in Canada,
employing a steadily increasing volume of Canadian labor and developing Canadian
IWeighen stands firm for the continuance of a reasonable tariff. It is now even more
imperative than in the past. All other important countries are retaining or increasing
their tariffs in order that they may hold their home markets for their own people.
Under Crerar'g Free Trade policy Canada would be swamped with foreign goods,
principally from the United States, Canadian industry would be ruined, thousands
of men and women would be out of work with all the hardships to themselves and
their children that must result The farmer's great home market would be seriously
affected, taxes would be increased, and Canadian working men would have to go to
the United States for employment.
While King's Tariff policy is wobbly it nevertheless tends toward the destruction of
the Tariff and would bring with it practically the same results. •
MEIGHEN'S POtfcY EVERYBODY KNOWS. It is the only means whereby
confidence may be maintained and 'employment given to all classes of the people.
The foregoing is a plain statement of logical conclusions arrived at from the facts,
Think the matter over carefully "without favor but with fairness".
Make your own decision, stand by it unmoved and be sure to exercise your vote.
Canada Needs Your Vote; and--
