Alice Arm Card Party
Greatly Enjoyed
Another of those popular card
parties, which have featured the
sociul activities of Alice Arm during the winter months, was held at
the School on Saturday night.
The Alice Arm Junior Sports'
Club were the hosts, and under.the
supervision of Mr. Everett Greenaway they gave their guests a very
enjoyable evening's entertainment.
Bridge was played during the
early part of the evening. The
winners being: Ladies' first prize,
Mrs. O. Evindson; consolation.
Mrs. J: Studdy. Gentlemen's first
prize, Mr. J. Trinder; consolation,
Mr. L. O'Connor.
Following an appetising supper,
dancing was indulged in, which
brought to a close another well
spent social evening.
Riot of Color and Fun
At Masquerade
The big Annual Masquerade
Dance given by the Anyox Mine
Club at the Mine Hall on Monday
evening' was one of the most brilliant and colorful scenes ever witnessed on the hill.
The hall was thronged with dancers, including quite a r.umber from
the Beach. Every conceivable form
of costume was in evidence and almost every nationality represented.
The whole presenting a riot of color
and animation.
Stirring music kept everyone
dancing, and a plentiful and appetising supper renewed th'e efforts of
the dancers, who were ready to still
carry on when the Home Waltz
reminded them of bed and the 8
o'clock whistle which would shortly
send forth its summoning call to be
on the job.
Will Ask To Amend
Constitution
The adjourned meeting of the
Community League to be held on
the 20th. will be asked to vote on
the following amendment to the
constitution. The proposer is Mr.
Joseph McGilligan. "That the
office of Welfare Agent of the
Granby Consolidated Mining, Smelting and Power Co. Ltd., and secretary of the Anyox Community
League be severed and that the
secretary shall be a full time servant^
of the Anyox Community League
only." How this will, if passed,
affect the constitution of the league
will doubtless be a matter of searching debate.
Balance Sheet of League
Shows Substantial
Increase
The Annual Report and Balance
Sheet of the Anyox Community
League for the past year shows the
organization to be in a very prosperous and sound condition.
The total profits from all sources
combined is much greater than the
previous year, which shows that
the affairs of the League have been
capably handled.
Following is a portion of balance
heet recently published,  showing
the sources of income and expenditure.

Blow Up
Basketball reached its peak just
before the Rupert Invasion. Since
then the Intermediate League has
received a knock-out and it is
rumoured that the Store-Office team
will not be seen in action again
this season.
I. 0. D. E. Will Hold Card
Party
The regular meeting of the local
chapter of the I. O. D. E. was held
on Tuesday in the basement of the
United Church. Plans were made
for holding a card party at the Mine
Club early in April. Mrs. Warwick
and Mrs. Mclntyre were welcomed
as new members. Mrs. McKay
entertained with musical selections
while tea hostesses for the occasion
were Mrs. Eve and Mrs. Fricker.
Winners of Basketball Trophy
In Doubt
The winners of the trophiesaward

basketball are as yet undecided.
To date the high school has won
four games by a narrow margin
and last Saturday's contest ended in
a tie at 18 all. Three games are
yet to be played. As the total of
points scored is what counts, the
primary school has still a chance.

Light Snowfall Makes Easy
Travelling
The light snowfall this winter
ha9 made travelling comparatively
easy for the operators of mining
properties in the district. During
the week several were down from
the camps, among whom were A.
Knox of the Tiger, A. MoGuire of
the Sunrise, W. McFarlane of the
Homeguard, Gus Pearson and M,
Santel of the North Star, A. Davidson of the Wildcat. The majority were down for more supplies
before the disappearance of snow
in the higher altitudes makes
sleighing impossible.

Anyox Basketball Games
For Past Week Prove
Interesting
Mechanics have been out of luck
ately. Ou Friday against the
Concentrator they were leading
10-8 at half time, and were going
strong. But in the second spasm
Evans sprained an ankle and the
surviving quintette lost out at 24-
15. Musser was in the limelight
with ten points. The Mine Club
dance played hob with the game
on Monday. The Store-Office
scratched up five players, some unregistered, and took on tlie Mechanics who were without Deane and
Evans. It was an every man for
himself affair. The Beach, however, with one player summarily
banished and another refusing to
continue ran up the surprising
score of 36 to the Mechanics 14 of
which Lazorek supplied 13. It was
a difficult game to handle and the
handling was formally protested
by the Beach.
Players: Beach: McCallum, 8;
C. Dresser, 9; McLachlan, 11; J.
O'Neil], 2; S. Peters; McDonald,
4; H. Deeth, 2.    Total—36.
Mechanics: Lindgren, 1; Steele;
Lazorek, 13; Cloke; Dodd. Total
-14.
Referee—Fordyce Clark.
The Beach Girls are now leading
the second- half by virtue of two
successful victories. On Friday
they nosed out the High School 9-
7 after coming from behind a half-
time score of 5-2. On Monday
they wrestled evenly with the
Mine during the first half to 8-7.
In the third quarter the Mine
pulled up to 13 and stopped there
while the Beach girls drove their
score up to the point where a
basket by Doris Greenwood in the
last minute made it 14-13 and sewed up tlie game.
Big St. Patrick's Dance On
Friday
The celebration of the anniversary of the birth of St. Patrick will
be held on Friday evening at the
Gymnasium. As in former years
the memory of Ireland's patron
saint will be honored by a dance.
It is being sponsored by the ladies
of the Catholic Church. Irish music,
wit and the devil-may-care spirit
of the Emerald Isle will prevail. A
dance you can't afford to miss.
Large  Audience   Enjoys
Musical Programme
The musical entertainment given
last Sunday evening by the Anyox
Concert Orchestra under the direction of Stewart Steele was attended
by a large number. The programme was carried out with great
skill by this well-trained group of
musicians, and every number was
thoroughly enjoyed.
Rev. B. Jennings of the Anglican
Mission boat Northern Cross, will
visit Alice Arm during the weekend of March 23rd. He will hold
Divine Service in the Anglican
Church on Sunday, March 24th.
which is the Sunday before Easter.

The training of our children is
something that should receive every
encouragement. It has been often
said that "The children of today
are the citizens of tomorrow."
What our future citizens are is due
to a large extent to their training
as youths. The home is the
primary place for training, and
then the school. But children cannot always be kept at home or
school. It is the leisure hours
when often a large part of the
training is undone. In order to
look after the boys and girls during
a part of their leisure hour's the
Scout movement came into existence about twenty-five years ago,
and later the Girl Guides. Both
of these organizations are in a
flourishing condition in Anyox.
The boys, under Scout-master
Gale hold their meetings, and learn
many things that will be helpful in
later life, chief of which is ability
to take care of ones self when an
emergency arises, friendliness to
everyone, and last but not least,
courtesy. The Girl Guides, under
Miss Hoadley are trained along
similar lines. If the children of
Anyox fail to become good citizens
of the future the fault will not be
lack of opportunities for proper
training.
The price of copper has been
rising, is still rising, and is likely to
continue to rise still further according to latest advices. Consequently
everyone of the 2200 people of
Anyox are feeling much better,
thank you. The employee's wages
are increased from time to time,
with no additional burdens, except
that of packing a heavier roll. The
Granby Company are making a
bigger profit without any extra
effort, so why, indeed should'nt
everyone be happy. The high
price of copper means the distribution of more wealth.   It ajso means
Saddle Will Be Shipping
Ore This Year
Silver Crest Mining Co. Ltd.,
controlling the Saddle Mine .'it
Hastings Arm and the Silver Crest
group in the Salmon River Valley,
fftst year devoted its entire attention to the developing of the Saddle
where it is hoped to make a profitable liighgrade shipper. This year,
it is stated, some diamond drilling
will be done on the original Silver
Crest property which lies in close
relation to Big Missouri.
Ou the Saddle, as soon as weather
permits, the tram which was nearly completed last season, will be
finished and the adit tunnel being
driven to come under tho main
shaft on the property will be continued to its objective, with the'
object of opening a body of ore for
early shipment. The tunnel is
about 200 feet vertically below the
outcropping and ia stated to have
about 900 feet to go.
Silver Crest owns a 70 per cent
interest iu Saddle. P. E. Peterson,
engineer for the company, has
recommended probing below the
capping that covers part of the
Silver Crest group to determine
whether or not a theory that the
ore-forming rock of Big Missouri
ground extend into Silver Crest.
The oompany, with head office in
Vancouver, was incorporated in
Dec-ember, 1919, with an authorized capital of $500,000 divided
into 2,000,000 shares with par value
of 25 cents of which 1,904,333
shares are outstanding.
Directors are: A. S. Thompson,
president; G Armitage; V. J. E.
Fitzgerald, secretary; C. O. Wiok-
enden; P. Mallet; G. A. DeHaseth.
Your employer knows how good
yon are without your telling him.
Say it with work.
After all, others can do very little
for you. You must do yonr own
righting and vanquishing, starting with self.
bringing lots of copper properties
to the producing stage. These new
mining towns will mean new markets for the farmers, the manufacturers, the wholesalers and retailers,
shipping and railroad companies
and many others. Yes, the rise in
price of copper is enough to make
everyone feel happy, whether or
not they are directly concerned
with the industry.
NOW BEING DEVELOPED
Utility Mines No. 1 Limited have
taken over the Tiger and Kitsol Groups
in the Upper Kitsault Valley, and an
intensive program of development work
has been inaugurated.

Stewart hospital, last Wednesday
were laid to rest iu the Stewart
cemetery. The services were conducted by the Rev. W. B. Jennings
of St. Mark's Churoh.
There was a large gathering of
friends of the deceased, who came
principally from the mines to pay
their last respects to good friends
and respected citizens.

Of interest to British Columbia,

of the Yukon Gold Mining Company's property at Windy Arm on

Ontario's New Mining
Act Will Be Watched
By Government
Introduction of a blue sky law
in British Columbia with the particular object of controlling mining
companies as well as other concerns,
was fore-shadowed by Attorney-
General Pooley in the legislature.
Ontario, he said, had recently
enacted a new law along these lines
and its legality had not been questioned yet. The British Columbia
Government, he said, intended to
watch the operation of the Ontario
law for a year to see whother it
could withstand legal attack "with
a view to adopting it here".
The desirability of penalizing
mining engineers who make falsi'
reports about mining properties to
aid the sale of stock was emphasized by George Walkem, Conservative of Vancouver. Hon. W. A.
MacKenzie. minister of minister of
mines, said this was a matter
which could be handled best by
the Professional Engineers' Association.
Will Increase Resident
Mining Engineer Staff
In view of the development of
mining in British Columbia, it is
intended to add to the staff of district engineers, it was explained in the Legislature by
Hon. W. A. McKenzie, minister
of mines. With this end in view,
;the districts will be made more
elastic.
Further provision to encourage
the discovery of minerals will take
the form of winter classes to prospectors in basic geology, the minister said. For this purpose a sum
of $5000 would be included in the
estimates.

appears every likelyhood that the
great building will be open io the

British   Umpire.
Some idea of the world-wide arei

balance it is necessary to turn fifty-
nine dilloront loreign currencies into
dollars in order to ret an accurate

ment planes are equipped with the

discovery of an outbreak.
"The principle of rapid freezing
has such qualifications that there
seems to be little room for doubt
that it is going to revolutionize the
fishing industry," stated W. A.

Slave and Athabaska Rivers, traversing country that would otherwise he difficult to cross.
A new and strange form of wildfowl is being imported into Alberta
by the Calgary Fish and Game Association, which has arranged to secure 2,000 Mongolian and Chinese
ring-necked pheasants. The birds
are to be liberated this summer
throughout the southern part of the
province, where 1800 were placed
last season as part of the Game
Association's plan for re-stocking
Alberta's game bird supply. With
all these Oriental birds loose the
ancient Yellow Peril seems more
imminent.
Clipping as much as an hour and
a half off her schedule eastbound,
and half an hour westbound, the
Trans Canada Limited, crack flyer
of the Canadian Pacific Railway
running between Montreal, Toronto, and Vancouver, will be further
remarkable this summer by reason
of a "solarium" car, containing
baths and a special sun-room, that
will be included in her luxurious
equipment. The Mountaineer, another speedy summer train, running
between Vancouver and Chicago
will also have "solarium" cars, and
run on faster time. The Trans
Canada makes its first run on May
12, and The Mountaineer on June
10. 9 The former train makes 140
trips during the summer season
covering a distance equal to about
fifteen and a half times around tbe

Dealers in Fresh, Salt, and Smoked Meats,
Fish, Poultry, Butter and Eggs
Equipped  with  Modern   Cold Storage  Plant
Nelson's Unlucky Love Adventure.
Vj7riting in the London "Evening
News," Max Pemberton, well-
known English writer, says:—
I read in an American journal
a discussion as to which is the
most beautiful city in the world;
and I am not surprised that a
writer names Quebec, and
names it with emphasis.
We cannot wonder at the
literary enthusiasm Quebec
has provoked.
"The majestic appearance
of Cape Diamond," says one
writer ... the fortifications
the cupolas, and minarets,
like those of an Eastern city,
blazing and sparkling in the
sun, the noble basin like a
sheet of purest silver, in
which might ride with safety
the navies of the world, the
graceful meanderings of the
River St. Lawrence, the fertile valley dotted with picturesque habitant houses, the
distant falls of Montmorency
... the grim purple mountains, the barriers to the
North, form a picture which it
is no exaggeration to say is
unsurpassed in any part of
the world."
It is easy to applaud such
chauvinism when one has set
loot in Quebec and been received
with that courtly hospitality for
which its people are famous.
Naturally, romance is never far
sway from such a picture. There
is a story told of the Lord Nelson
and of one Miles Prentice, who
served under Wolfe and subsequently served beer.   This fellow
opened an inn to which the soldiers
and sailors resorted ... and among
them in the year 1782 came the
Captain Nelson, then commanding
H.M.S. Albemarle, of 26 guns.
"Miles Prentice," says a writer,
"had a niece, Miss Simpson,
daughter of Sandy Simpson, whose
charms so captivated the embryo
Admiral that when his vessel had
sailed from port he clandestinely
returned for the purpose of wedding 'the maid of the inn,' which
purpose was defeated by Mr. Alexander Davidson, then a Quebec
merchant, who, with the assistance
of his boat's crew, forcibly carried
the amorous captain on board his
vessel,"
This seams somewhat drastic
treatment, hardly likely to be popular in ont. tine, when captains
ashore to Many maids are usually
welcome aaa other people hastsn
to boy coafetti. But Quebec
ever was and ever will be a
city of the strictest proprieties.
I would add that my first
visit to this incomparable
height was made during the
first considerable snowfall of
the year. I believe some
five feet of snow were down
in relatively a few hours, and
anything more bewitching
than the whitened domes and
pinnacles and the fairy-like
scenes beyond the walls it is
difficult to imagine.
But Quebec is the home of
superb spectacles, and in the
Chateau Frontenac possesses
one of the most dominating
hotels in the world. Here
is a great hostelry like to
no other one can name—
majestic in the fashion of a
mediaeval fortress, yet as
up-to-date as any hotel in
America and more comfortable than most. From its terrace a
glorious panorama of river and villages and blue hills beyond is unfolded . . . and it is no surprise to
hear that many thousands of Americans seek this palatial height
every year and succumb to its
enchantment.
"See Naples and then die I"
Rather, see Quebec and find a
new inspiration to live.

Expresses Thanks
The Anyox Concert Orchestra
wish to thank the audience of their
last concert for the generous way
in which they responded to Mr. Mc-
Pherson's S. 0. S. The collection
amounted to $32.50 which covers
our debts. From now on a large
audience will be better to us than a
large collection.
