Activities  of   Football
Season Reviewed
In reviewing the past football
season the Anyox Football Association are gratified at results attained. They state that there are still
a few games to be played and every
effort will be made to get these
away early. Several games were
unavoidably postponed during the
season, due to sickness and also to
our old enemy the weatherman,
who has not been over kind to us.
The teams have been evenly matoh •
ed and some very close gameR have
been played. The Mine team, with
constant difficulties to contend
with, deserves a good deal of praise.
They have not many wins to tlieir
credit but have always put up a
hard fight. Hats off to their conscientious! willing manager Bill
The Rangers have been a hard
fighting bunch. They have played
some splendid games and given exhibitions that were well worth
watching. Manager Kirby has
done exoellent work iu keeping his
team in top form.
Last but by no means least, come
the Celts, who oan always be depended upon to fight to the last
whistle. They have had as many
ups aud downs as an elevator, but
these simply spur them on to try
harder. Our old enthusiast; Jaok
Bell deserves credit for his fine
work as manager.
Thanks are also due to the A. C.
L. for their unfailing support, and
for their ready assistanoe whenever
it has been requested.

Improvement Made To Govt.
Telegraph Line
A considerable improvement has
been made to the government telegraph line between Alice Arm and
Anyox. A new submarine cable
was recently laid from Larcom
Island to a point near the Elks'
Beach, a distance of two miles.
This eliminates a short snbmarine
cable and three miles of line.

W. J. Asselstine Describes Atlin
Mining Operations
W. J. Asselstine, liberal candidate at the forthcoming election,
recently returned from a visit to
the Atlin district, which was taken
by Mr. Asselstine to acquaint himself with conditions in this northern section of the constituency and
the problems of the people there.
He found everyone busily engaged in placer mining; full of optimism and enthusiasm.
Mr. Asselstine states that there
is approximately J20 men employed during the summer months on
the placer creeks. The greater
part of the operations are carried
on under individual leases and the
profits divided among those actual

day operation. Tlie profits- from
this cleanup was divided' among
five men. Needless to say, a few
operations of this kind in any district goes a long way toward de
veloping a very healthy and
optimistic outlook.
There is at present two Keystone drills operating on the creeks
in an endeavor to prove the extensions of former pay streaks.
In regard to transportation,

120 miles of excellent roads serving

While Mr. Asselstine's visit was
iu connection with his political
campaign, he found the actual

creeks far more interesting than he
had anticipated, and enjoyed every

Golf Champions Being
Knocked Over
The Anyox Golf Club Handicap
Championship, whioh carries with
it the handsome trophy presented
by Charles Bocking, has now
reached the third round. Three
games have been played in this
round so far, all of them in the nature of upsets. Frank Buckle,
who was much favored to win,
went down to defeat before H. R.
Taylor; and Dick Lavery, the much-
toted player from the mill, succumbed to Fred Brown. Sid
Peters the invincible was knocked
out by C. O. Fricker. So even in
golf you may guess but you can't
be sure. It is earnestly hoped that
contenders will arrange to play
their games at the earliest oppor

The president of the Rebekah
Assembly of B. C, Mrs. Edith R.
V. Todd, of Victoria, visited Anyox
on Friday the 18th. the occasion

Mrs. Todd, who has a dynamic
presence as well as a most charming personality, made a lasting impression upon the fellow-members
of her Lodge in Anyox. At the
social following the banquet she
delighted her auditors with some
vooal selections, given in a voice of
remarkable quality. Her first song
was "Keep on Hopin' " which was
followed by "Service." Later she
gave: "One Alone" from "The Desert Song," and as an encore she
sang Ihe rollicking ''Come to the
Fair." The Rebekahs have cause
to be proud of their president, who
has not only an earnest and winning manner but a glorious voice,
.which she uses as a means of conveying inspirational messages to
the members of the subordinate
lodges of the Rebekah Order.

In the second game of the Baseball Cup series, played on Friday
the 18th. between the Beach and
the Colts, the latter pranced home
three times to win from the low-
landers, who made the rounds but
twice. It was one of the fastest
and most thrilling games of the
season. Ferguson pitched a fine
game for the Beach, while Windle
was dynamite for the miners, striking out eleven men. Smart fielding by both sides livened up the
game, and errors were few. The
handful of fans who attended were

E. MOSS, Editor and Publisher.
The economic committee of the
Native Sons of British Columbia
have submitted a number of recommendations to Hon. Joshua
Hinchcliffe, minister of lands.
These suggestions recommend the
abolition of allowing land pre-emptions in distant parts of the province
and advocate the concentration of
the population in the southern portion of the province. Their chief
arguments to the present system of
widespread land settlement, are
cost of roads, schools, and lack of
markets for the farmers' products.
They also point to the many abandoned pre-emptions as a failure of
the present system. Their plan
seems to be to abandon the biggest
portion of the province as far as
farming is concerned, at least, and
concentrate the farming industry to
a restricted district in the south, as
near to Vancouver as possible.
The sponsors of the recommendations have evidently lost the old
pioneer spirit of their ancestors
who hewed homesteads out of the
bush in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Quebec and Ontario, and
laid the foundation of the pleasant
modern farms. They have lost
the vision of a greater Canada,
which was possessed by the pioneers of the prairies who drove their
prairie schooners from the far east
and transformed a wilderness into
a sea of waving grain. They
have lost the wanderlust of the
B. C. pioneers who rounded the
Horn in little sailing boats and
courageously and laborously cleared the southern part of the province of the huge trees and cultivated tiny patches from which
ultimately grew the prosperous
farms of today. These recommendations, of course, will not be
taken seriously by any British
Columbian Government. If they
were we would become the laughing stock of the world. Every
province in Canada, except British
Columbia, is encouraging the
settlement of the northern sections,
so that prosperous communities are
being built for the future. Every
new country in the world encourages settlers to break and till new
land so that the frontiers can be
extended. Imagine what Canada
would be today if such a policy of
restriction of settlement had been
carried out fifty or a hundred years
ago by the faint hearts. The
sponsors of the recent recommendations have evidently lost the vision
of their forebears in creating a
bigger and stronger Canada.

American Report of Yukon

That the new radio system will be of value in the suppression of crime is
indicated by the fact that while the preliminary tests were being carried
on during the installation of the system a call came over the air to the test
car driven by a police officer who made the first radio arrest in the Montreal area.   Several other arrests have since been effected during tests.
