Elks' Big Variety Show
Was a Universal
Chuteman at Hidden Creek
Mine Fatally Injured
A splendid variety show—one
whioh was altogether different
from the usual run of planned concerts— was presented at the Reoreation Hall at Anyox on Wednesday, November 7th. The hall wus
tilled to capacity, and the audience
enjoyed greatly a lengthy programme of unusual and entertaining numbers. The evening's doings centered around a musical and
danee show oompany, who found
themselves stranded on a wayside
railway station through the absconding of one of their members
with the funds—and a little blondei
dancer. However, the local Elks
saved the situation by engaging a
troupe to put on a show, which
they did with great credit to themselves.
The names of several local celebrities were worked into the dialogue during the evening, causing
much amusement.
The opening number was a violin
solo by W. Thompson, his rendering
of "Frasquita" by Franz Lehar
being delightful. As an encore he
gave "The Old Refrain" by Fritz
Kreisler. Miss Jean and Mr. Jack
Pinckney sang "Sympathy" in a
charming manner, the encore being
taken up by Miss V. Phippen and
Mr. G. Boulter, who danced the
Tango to this familiar refrain.
A dance number by eight young
ladies, with Miss I, Wynne and Mr.
B. Loudon as principals, in
the singing of "Cocktails for
Two," was nicely presented. A
popular number was the singing of
''My Hat's on the side of my Head"
by Miss F. Wilkinson and Mr. W.
An Hawaiian scene with J. Buntain J. Heywood and A. White as
musicians, was most effective.
Speoial mention should be made, of
the danoing of Miss J. Munro as a
native girl. She danced with a
grace aud abandon that captured
the hearts of the audience. A solo
by Mrs. Mills, "Little Pal," followed by "Why do You keep laughing
at Me?" was well reoeived.
Perhaps the most finished event
on the programme was the dancing
of Misses F. Wilkinson. Y. Cannon,
R. Llewellyn, B. Muir, A. Krusick
and P. Loudon, with Morgan Flye
as prinoipal. The group was recalled.
A unique turn was given by the
Hill-Billy Orohestra, with W. Over-
end as leader.   This aggregation

Joseph Annett, aged 41, met his
death on Sunday morning last as
the result of an accident at the
Hidden Creek Mine, where he was
employed. Annett, who was following his occupation as chuteman
was struck on the head by a piece
of rook which fell down the chute.
The occurrence took place about
3 a.m., first aid being promptly administered and the injured workman conveyed to the Anyox Hospital, where he died about 8:45.
He had a brother in Vancouver,
but his home was in Ireland. He
was a veteran of the Great War
The funeral was held on Wednesday. November 7th., at 2:30, under
the auspioes of the Anyox Branch
of the Canadian Legion, the Rev.
Evan Baker officiating. An inquest was held on Monday, the
5th., a verdict of acoidental death
being returned.
Elks Extend Thanks To Many
Helpers of Show
Hu.utiest thanks are extended
by the committee ofthe B. P. 0. E.
who sponsored the recent variety
Show, to everyone who assisted in
any way in its presentation. Without the assistanee given by these
willing workers, the effort would
not have been successful.
Requests are being received for
a repetition of the show and. the
matter will be duly considered.
Anglican Church Army]
Will Conduct Mission
At the invitation of Bishop Rix
two representatives of the Church
Army are conducting a "Mission of
Witness" throughout the Diocese
of Caledonia.
They will hold services in Anyox
commencing Monday, November
12th-, and continuing throughout
the week. Children's service will
be held daily at 4 p.m., adults at
7:45 p.m. Special services will be
held on Sunday.
The Church Army is an Anglican organization, founded by the
Rev. Wilson Carlyle, Prebendary of
St. Paul's Cathedral. All its members are licenced by the Bishop to
conduct services in Church. It is
I renowned in the Old Country for
its mission aud philanthropic work.
Its founder, Wilson Carlyle, was
decorated by the King with the
order of the ''Companion of Honor"
a rare distinction given only to
those who have made outstanding
contributions to the welfare of
A Former Anyox Resident
Passes Away
The death occurred recently at
Amos. Quebec of Mr. Thomas La
Clair. Interment took place in
Calgary Alta.
Mr. La Clair was employed by
the Granby Co. several years ago
and Mrs. La Clair was a member
of the store staff and was very
popular. Now employed by the
Dunwell Co. in Stewart, Mrs. La
Clair will have the sympathy of a
host of friends in her sad bereavement-
Kathleen Eve.
Purely a local product, "Bubbles"
Eve may well be held as a model
to those young ladies who interest
themselves in things athletic.
Several times tennis champion
on our courts, her experience and a
keenly developed eye, have been
put to good use on the basketball
floor. An original member of the
Spooks' team and a star forward
on the Anyox rep. team that play
ed the Rupert girls last winter,
Bubbles has come forward to head
the scoring list for the ladies' league
to date. A keen and generous opponent, Bubbles has won a host of
friends among the players and fans.
Judging from her form this winter, she will certainly have no
trouble in making any star team
this year.
Everyone Invited To Anglican
Church Mission Services.

first part of the evening a 'Mock
Trial' was presented by several
members of both lodges and same
proved very interesting, Refreshments were served and were followed by games aud dancing. The
evening was voted a complete sue
icess by all those present.
Alice Arm Notes
Mrs. F. Dodsworth arrived fron;
Anyox on Saturday and spent the
week-end with her daughter Florence, who is teaching school here.
T. W. Hall, school inspector ar
rived from Prince Rupert on Mon
day, to examine the pupils of the
local school.     He left   again   on
Wednesday, for Stewart and Premier.
Mrs B. Turbitt left on Monday,
for a visit to Vancouver.
Mr. Ritchie arrived on Thursday
from Priuce Rupert, in order to

A special invitation is extended
to all interested in the mission services which will be held in the
Anglican Church, Anyox, next
week. The services will be con
ducted by two members of the
Church army. It is earnestly desired that all Anglicans will make
an effort to attend these services!
The object of the mission, however,
is not to win people over from
other churches, but rather to
preach the gospel of Christ. The
mission is being conducted in au
effort to make people think about
things that matter, and to ponder
over the message of Christ.

Trojans Defeat Vandals
In a Hard Fought
Game Friday
The fighting Trojans again gave
a first-class display of masterful
strategy to push the Vandals out
of the picture in Friday's game.
With both teams fighting every
inch of the way and the sidelines a
bedlam of hoarse cheering fans, the
game was one to be remembered.
The great popularity of the boys
in green is deservedly due to their
scrappy and sportsmanlike qualities. The Vandals put up a real
battle, although they have shown
better form in previous games.
Trojans: B. Gillies 9, F. Gordon
2, D. Arne 1, Shields 7,  McDonald
1, Gillies 2, Dresser.   Total 23.
Vandals: F. Calderoni 6, T. Calderoni 8, Kulai 1, Gourlay. Woodman, Home 6.   Total 21.
The girls' game oarried through
the promise of good ball that has
been shown before. The Mine gills
had revenge on the Aces, for the
loss suffered last week. Only the
bad luck of the Beach girls iu finding tha basket, enabled the Mine
girls to win however. Mine Girls:
Powell, Calderoni, Roberts 2, Muir
9, Cannon, Arscot.   Total 11.
Aces: Loudon 4, Ion 2, Pinckney
2, Dresser 2,    Carrick,    Rogers.
Total 10.
The opening game left the fans
cold, with the Rovers again on the
receiving end of a whitewashing.
The boys obviously have all the
vim, vigor and vitality necessary.
Perhaps they should get together
and acquire some ideas. The Warriors showed nice, snappy action
and deserve stifferopposition. The
score was typical.   36-13.
On Monday night the Mine boys
let temperament get away with
them to the extent of refusing to
The girls' game was well worth
seeing, with the Aces and Spooks
mixing it in real class. Judging
from the enthusiasm shown, the
top notchers might remain away
every game night and none would
shed a tear. The first game was
not up to usual form. The Warriors showed little of the tricky play
that gained their decisive Monday
victory. Bob Church celebrated
his return to town with 10 points
to his oredit.
Warriors: Phillips 5, McDonald,
Dominato 7, Pinckney 6, J. O'Neill
1, Smith. D. O'Neill.   Total 19.
Foundry: Church 10, Scott 10,

Our Bodies  Also  Need
Periodical Overhaul
The following is an extract from
a pamphlet issued by the Canadian
Social Hygiene Council, and is
good advice to follow:
We are accustomed to being told
that this is a machine age. If
people would only learn that their
bodies are marvellous flesh-and-
blood machines, and would give
those machines the same care and
attention that expensive machinery
receives in an up-to-date factory,
there would be less sickness and
lower death-rates.
But the average motorist, who
gets his car overhauled every spring
never thinks of taking his body to
a doctor for an overhauling. He
doesn't seem to realize that there is
an enormous amount of incipient
disease of many types which, neglected in early stages, results in
serious disability, expense and frequently death. The detection of
such incipient disease constitutes
one of the greatest problems before
health authorities today. There is
one solution. Periodic Health
Examination—a periodic and thorough overhauling by a competent
physician. To induce people to
adopt this solution is a task demanding prompt and constant attention of health authorities, thoughtful citizens and statesmen.
Attitude of China In Regard
To Silver Perplexing
By an ironic turn of events the
first large consequence of the agitation in this country to "do something for silver" has been to force
the only important country now on
the silver standard to consider
abandoning it, says the New York
Times. The notes of the Chinese
Government specifically express
the opinion that in view of recent
developments "China should not
alone maintain the silver standard'
and state that her Government is
therefore "considering the gradual
introduction of a gold basis cur
rency." .... Our Government did
not discuss in its replies to Nanking
the question of recent price "flue
tuations," But it politely rejected
a specific offer by China to swap
her silver for our gold. Why? If
there is any logic in our policy, such
an exchange would be the quickest
way to transform one-fourth of our
own monetary reserves into silver,
This was the goal officially set by
Congress as an "ultimate objective." Apparently and—fortunately—our Government is not anxious
to get there in a hurry.
Differences Between Public
And Private Companies
Fully Explained By
Mr. Stewart
The following article written by
Mr. Carl M. Stewart of Anyox fully
explains to our readers the difference between a Public and a Private Company, and explains in
detail all questions not formerly
dealt with.
The legal restrictions of carrying
on business vary, depending on the
type of organization involved. A
single person carrying on a business
does not have to register, provided
he is operating under his own name.
Should the single person be operating under a trade name, say, the
Peerless Laundry, he is called on to
register as a partnership under the
Partnership Act.
Two or more people and up to
twenty, carrying on business, must
register as a partnership under the
Partnership Act.
Over twenty people carrying on
business together must register as a
company under the Companies'Act.
In any case where the number of
the group exceeds fifty, they must
not only register as a company, but
must comply with the regulations
that apply to a Public company as
against those that apply to what is
known as a Private company.
Since these articles have been
started I have been asked to clear
up the differences between a Public
and a Private company and will try
and do so, even if I have to repeat
a little. Both companies are the
same in that they limit the liability
of the shareholders for the debts of
the company to the amount, if any,
still unpaid on the person's shares
A Private company in most cases
is a closed corporation. That is
the members do not permit their
shares to be transferred without
each others' consent. The object
of this is to prohibit the possibility
of a share coming into the hands of
someone in a rival business, who
could by virtue of his becoming a
shareholder, attend the meetings
and examine the books of the com
pany. This is avoided by a regulation that no member can sell or
transfer his shares, without he first
ofier it to the other members.' The
company is said to restrict the right
to transfer shares, and this is the
first main difference from a Public
The second difference is in the
limitation of the members. A Private company can only have fifty,
whereas a Public company can have
as many as it likes.
The third difference is that a
Private company is not permitted to
offer to the public its shares or
bonds for sale, It must raise its
money privately without any printed
literature or advetisements. So
where it is intended to raise money
from the public a Public company
has to be used.
The government through the Registrar of companies does not interest itself in the operations of a
Private company. The company
can start business as soon as incorporated and it never has to file a
financial statement with the Registrar.
In the case of a Public company
the Registrar takes quite an interest. The company cannot start
business as soon as incorporated.
It has first to secure what is
known as the minimum subscription, that is the least money that
the company can, in the opinion ot
the Registrar start business with,
with a fair prospect of success.
Until this amount is gathered up,
nothing can be done, and if the1
promoters do not succeed in getting
it, whatever they have collected
must be returned intact to the per.
sons who subscribed it.
The Registrar, in the case of a
Public company passes on the a-
mount of shares that are being given
to the promoters and he has power
to refuse incorporation if he does
not think the amount reasonable.
A Public company must also file
with the Registrar an annual statement of its finances and financial
operations', which is of course available to anyone who desires to search
the records. It requires only two
people to form a Private company,
whereas five are necessary in the
formation of a Public company.
The above are the main differences
between the two types of company
organization and it is not difficult to
know, which one to make use of
in starting out on a business venture.

Vein On Glacier Creek Cut
By Stuart Barclay At
The Stewart News
The main vein on the Glacier
Creek Company property was reached on Saturday last, when Stuart
Barclay completed his contract for
driving 172 feet of tunnel, which
now puts the face of the tunnel
some 795 feet from the portal, and
gives backs on the vein of some
500 feet. Samples taken from
about a foot of the hanging wall,
according to an authoritative statement, gave a return of .56 ounces
in gold and 23.76 silver. Samples
of the ore seen by the News contain
galena disseminated through a
heavy iron snlphide in a quartz
With the. completion of the Barclay contract, work on the vein was
suspended, pending arrangements,
which are now complete, for the
Company to put in its own crew,
for first cutting the vein, thus determining its width and values, and
then drifting both ways, preliminary
to inaugurating a development programme.
Mining Broadcasts Will Be
Hector Charlesworth, chairman
of the Canadian Radio Commission,
has issued instructions to all broadcasting stations in Canada to the
effect that broadcasts relating to
the mining industry in any of its
forms must henceforth be confined
exclusively to market quotations.
All commentaries are prohibited.
This action has been taken in consequence of public complaints about
certain broadcasts.

Canadian Radio Users Continue To Increase
Across Canada's vast expanse
from the Atlantic to the Pacific and
from the International Boundary to
the Arctic, the radio has made a
most successful invasion of Canadian homes. A marked increase is
shown in the number of radio licenses issued by the Canadian Government during the first six months
of the current fiscal year, from April
to the end of September, which
totalled 548,249, a gain of approximately 45,000 licences over the
number issued in the first half of
the preceding fiscal year. Furthermore, licences issued during six
months of this year represent over
77 per cent of the total number issued during the whole of the last
fiscal vear.

Lack Of Co-operation
May End Senior
The failure of the Mine team to
show up for the schedule game on
Monday night last, came as a disappointment to those who had
hoped for au undivided and harmonious league this winter. Iu the
dispute over referees, the Mine
have evidently thrown an ultima"
turn into the official ring.
That the Vandals are no more
responsible for the impasse than
any other faction party to the argument, is evidently quite true,
Nevertheless, irrespective of the
rights or wrongs of the matter, it
seems to us that several salient facts
have been lost in the general- heat
and bluster.
For the benefit of those who are
outside looking in, it might be as
well to explain. First, that basketball here in Anyox is supported
and fostered by the Community
League. It hardly seems reasonable to suppose, that the few paid
admissions to the games would even
approach the expenses attached to
the sport. To combat this, the argument may be put forward that
all basketballers are A. C. L. members and therefore entitled to suoh?
privileges. It must be kept in
mind however, that the basketball
league, players, fans, referees aud
Commission form a very insignificant minority of total A. 0. L.
Secondly, we have a Commission
duly elected by representative basketballers to govern the game. ■ If
players will insist on taking ever
the reins, why elect a Commission?
Thirdly, right or wrong, good or
bad, there are only three men in
Anyox capable of handling a game
in anything approaching an able
manner. While this statement may
be challenged by various people, it
remains a generally admitted fact.
Two of our referees have been protested, the third is signed on as a
member of a senior team, thereby
making it inconvenient to use him
Elks' Big Variety Show Was
Universal Success
Continued from page 1
of musicians practically stole the
show. It was composed of a number of local boys, playing mandolins
violins, banjos, guitars, harmonicas
and a piano aooordian. They played with a swing and expression
that just suited the audience.
The group numbered several vocalists, a whistler of real ability,
and others with varied talents. A
solo by S. Anderson on the piano
aooordian was splendidly given-
Credit is due Mr. W. Murray for
his work as manager of this orchestra. Mr. Marks' singing of
"Neapolitan Nights" with the
orchestra accompanying, was a
feature. The final number on the
programme was a series of tableau
effects by a group of girls, ending
with the forming of the letters
B. P. 0. E.
Throughout the evening good
work was done by Mr. D. Campbell as the yokel announcer, roars
of laughter being caused by his
many quips. In the early stages
this gentleman was vamped by
Mae West, splendidly gotten up in
the person of Fred Calderoni.
Excellent work was done by two
orchestras, under J. Peel and J.
Gillies respectively, while behind
the scenes Mrs. W. Cannon worked
untiringly dressing and making up
the artists. Other backstage artists were J. Bell, A, Yelland and
F. Gibson. Special credit is due
Mr. A. Gillies who worked1 wonders
in the production of the show and
also to Mr. Ken. Hunter, manager
of the stranded troupers and an
untiring worker throughout.
Lastly' it seems possible that
should this dispute be prolonged
Anyox basketball will be a fizzle
this winter. Should such a thing
happen, one cannot help but point
out that hoopsters avid those interested in the sport will he solely responsible. Further than that, the
end of basketball can work a hardship on no one but those same
people. Undoubtedly the Gym
could be used to advantage by other
organizations on basketball night
and the A. C. L. would undoubtedly be in pocket.
Considering all these things it
may be well, that these energetic
kickers are outting off' their nose
to spite their face.
