Council of Community
League Transacts
At a special meeting of the
Anyox Community League Council
on Monday, Ed. Ashton was appointed as caretaker at the gymnasium. Much work has been done
in the pool room to make it an even
brighter place to while away leisure
hours during the coming winter.
Paint and enamel have been generously applied. Thirty-six new
cues have been added, cloths and
cushions have been renovated and
several new games are available.
For the theatre-goers the secretary has arranged with J. E. Archer, Vancouver manager of First
National, who was a visitor here
this week, to show such Stellar attractions as "Smiling Irish Eyes,"
"His Captive Woman," "Sally,"
and "Paris." There will not be as
many black moments during the
performances hereafter as the
League has purchased several
double reels upon which the films
will be wound before showing.
In the library an attempt is being
made to supply more and better
books and to make the reading
room a more attactive place.
, With the appointment of a caretaker the gymnasium will immediately begin to serve the needs of
those inclined to indoor athletics.

rise Group on McGrath mountain,
which has now entered the mineralized zone.
E. G. Davidson, mining engineer,
who has inspected numerous mining
properties in the Alice Arm district
this summer, is expected to arrive

Arm, where spectacular gold ore
was recently located.
Toric Mine To Operate
Throughout Winter
Prominent officials of the Britannia Mining & Smelting Co. paid
a visit to the Toric mine and other
properties under option by the
company, during the week. They
arrived on Monday morning and left
again on Wednesday afternoon.
The result of their visit was that
plans have been made to conduct
development work throughout the
coming winter.
The visitors comprised W. J.
Quigley of New York, president of
the company; C. P. Browning of
Britannia Beach, general manager;
O. R. Whittaker of Denver, Colorado, consulting engineer; and C.
V. Brennan head of the exploratory
department, Britannia Beach.
In addition to examining the
Toric, they also visited the Dolly
Varden and Wolf properties, which
the Britannia Co. optioned a few
months ago.
. Development work this winter
will consist of sinking the shaft
from the main level. This shaft
was commenced a few weeks ago,
and will be sunk to a depth of about
250 feet. A raise will also be made
from the same level. Ore can then
be developed on three levels.

Mohawk Property
Mr. Dave Thomson, president of
the Winnie Mining Co. who have
taken over the Mohawk property

A meeting of those interested in
I'adio will be held on Friday evening, October 25th, in Recreation
Ufall. The subject of the cheap

I'll! receive special attention.
Silver Crest Property
Gives Good Values
The Saddle property at Hastings
Arm, which is being developed by
the Silver Crest Mining Co. has the,
earmarks of developing into an important shipper. Latest reports
from the mine state that the tunnel
is being driven in a full face of ore
The ore is of a good grade
Samples which were recently assay
edgave returns of 15 percent, lead
35 ozs. silver, 20 cents gold, three
tenths of one per cent, copper and
four per cent, zinc, with a total
value of $45.77.
The Saddle is ideally located for
cheap transportation.   A short aerial
tramway connects the mine with the
beach, and everything is now com
pleted for the shipping of ore.
Work On Elkhorn Group Is
Development work on the Elkhorn Group has been suspended
until next spring. This property
jumped into prominence two weeks
ago when high grade gold ore assaying over $8,000.00 per ton was
located. The cause of the suspension of work this fall was snow conditions on the high altitudes, and
lack of camp buildings. The cool
weather1 of the past week did not
permit open air camping. Development work will be undertaken next

Following is a detailed report of
the Anyox Night School classes
that will be in operation this winter. There is an opportunity for
everyone to improve their learning.
A chance that should not be lightly ignored. Leisure hours could
not be spent more profitably than
by attending one or more classes.
Commercial Course:
This is a thoroughly practioal
course in book-keeping, typwrit-
ing, Isaac Pitman's shorthand
system, etc. Office equipment
such as typwriters, duplicators,
etc., have already been procured
by the School Board, and the necessary texts can be purchased from
the instructor, Mr. H. B. Porteous.
Students in this class should qualify for positions in any of these
subjects. The class meets in Division I. Public School, Monday and
Wednesday, from 7 to 9 p.m.
Mechanical  Drawing and Mill
Building Design
The Mechanical Drawing course
is adapted to any student from the
one that has had no drafting lessons, to those of experience. It is
so arranged that each student receives individual instruction, forming a class by himself. The work
covers the subjects of projection
and drawing to scales of various
machined parts from single pieces
to more complex problems.
For the Mill Building design
work, some knowledge of mechanical drawing is essential to thoroughly understand the subject
handled. The courses start as
elementary as necessary, and progress as far as the season and the
efforts of the students permits-
Instructor, R. O. Cutler. The
class meets in High School, Monday and Thursday 7 to 9 p.m.
Electrical Course:
This course not only endeavors
to give a short course in electricity
but also a knowledge of the
"Why?" of things electrical, such
as motors and generators, their installation, operation and repairs;
troubles, how to locate and remedy;
transformers, how to connect up
and oare for them; gas engines,
ignition systems; condensers aud
their uses and also the uses and
properties of insulators.
T. L. Mitchell who so successfully carried on the class last year is
in charge. The class meets in the
Electrical Shop on Monday and
Thursday 7 to 9 p,m.
Milling Metallurgy:
The work in this class will cover
a course in Metallurgy and all the
processes used in Milling and
Smelting. Details in flotation
processes will be dealt with thoroughly and some practice given in
Concentration. The metals studied are gold, silver, copper, lead

The members of the Council of
the Anyox Community League are
fulfilling their duties with unprecedented enthusiasm. They are supported by a secretary that is striving
to serve the people even better
than in previous years, and their
efforts are producing results.
Every kind of recreation is receiving
their attention, and suggestions
made by individual members are
carefully considered. Indoor recreation of all kinds during the long
winter months is being fostered.
The library is receiving special attention, and the Reading Room is
filled with periodicals from almost
every English speaking country.
To those who wish to study or
keep up-to-date on world events,
the library and reading room alone
is more than worth the small monthly fee. Become a supporter of the
League and by your assistance help
those who are helping you.
When the buildings now situated on the new streets of Alice
Arm have been removed and the
streets cleared and side walks built,
the town will present an appearance second to none in the province.
The business section will be located
near the waterfront. Farther back
will be the residential section, while
across the river small farms will be
under cultivation. Alice Arm is
fortunate in having such a large
area for townsite and farming purposes. There is not another town
in Northern B. C. that possesses
such an area of rich level land. It
is the duty of its inhabitants to assist nature in making it the town
beautiful of the north.
Canadians  Acquiring
Railway Bonds
That Canadians are supplying a
substantial portion of funds required
for capital purposes in connection
with the rapid industrial and agricultural development of the Dominion is evidenced by the fact that
fully 11 Canadian banks and investment houses are included in the international syndicate offering' an
issue of $30,000,000 Canadian National Railway Company 5 per cent
40-year bonds. These Canadian
institutions, with their Dominion-
wide clienteles, make it certain that
these bonds will obtain a wide circulation in this country.
Another interesting- feature is
that the bonds, which are practically
government securities, as both
principal and interest are guaranteed by the Dominion government,
are offered to yield over 5 per cent,
reflecting the recent rising tendencies in yields in the bond markets.
An outlet to the Pacific coast
for the Peace River country has
been the cause of considerable
discussion in the western press
during the past two years. Everyone knows that an outlet to the
coast will be provided at some
time, but it is possible that a few
years will elapse before it is done.
President Beatty of the C. N. R„
recently visited the coast and  also
Sales of Copper  Are
Dropping Off
Reports at the latter of September announce decreased sales of
copper at New York following the
heavy demand in August. Stocks
of undelivered copper at American
refineries are the heaviest for 4 or 5
years and production of both refined
and blister this year have beaten
all records. Accumulations, however, have not yet affected price
and some action is anticipated to
prevent excessive supplies from accumulating. New York reports
foreign sales satisfactory,
Lead is in fair demand though
volume has decreased somewhat.
Prices remain firm.
St. Louis reports a very weak
demand for zinc with 80 per cent,
of sales for spot shipment. London
reports unfavorable situation in zinc

Will Diamond Drill At
Dunwell Property
Following up a radiore survey
which was made some time ago,
Dunwell Mines Ltd. is diamond
drilling its property to try and locate the faulted ore bodies.
The Dunwell, which is completely equipped for production, including a 100-ton mill, closed down in
November, 1927, when ore in sight
unexpectedly petered out and metal
prices declined sharply.
A geophysical survey was made
in 1928 and good "conductors"
north and south were located.
It had been the intention to carry
on about 2000 feet of diamond
drilling to test the results of this
prospecting. During 1926 aud
1927 the stock was a sensation on
western exchanges.
Charles Bunting Visits Mines
In Eastern Canada
Charles Bunting, pioneer of the
Portland Canal Camp, has returned
from an extended visit to Toronto.
He has brought with him interesting specimens of ore and semi-
refined metals from the holdings of
the International Nickel Company,
Noranda and other eastern mines'.
In addition, he has a display of the
ores found on the Premier in the
early days of its development.
May Increase Gasoline Tax
An increase of the present three
cents tax on gasoline to five cents
on account of the extensive highway program planned is regarded
at the parliament buildings as almost certain to take place at the
next session of the legislature.
Ore Movements From Mayo
Last season the total movement
of ores and concentrates of the
great Mayo camp totalled 4,500
tons, valued at about $1,500,000.
This year the movement will be
8,000 tons of a total estimated value exceeding $2,600,000.
Copper Production Declines
The world's production of copper
in August was 173,729 short tons,
which compares with 174,347 tons
in July and 196,820 tons in April,
the peak month for the current year,
according to the American Bureau
of Metal Statistics. August production in 1928 amounted to 161,
838 tons.

$10 per annum for oil lease rentals on the tribe's
land and should oil materialize will receive a 12 Vz
per cent royalty on all production, a certain amount
cf which will be set aside for agricultural implements. They gathered in all their Indian bravery

Premier  Has  Formulated
Highway Policy
Legislation for the creation of a
highway classification and the expenditure of a million dollars on
highway construction and maintain-
ance in all parts of British Columbia affected by through traffic will
be sought by the government at
the next session, Premier Tolmie
announced in an address before the
Saanich Conservative Association.
The new highways will be termed
arterial highways and will be built
and maintained at the sole cost of
the provincial treasury.
Canada's Export Trade
Canada's trade in the five months
ending August 31 amounted to
$1,044,883,786. Despite a reduction of nearly $57,000,000 in wheat
exports, the total for the five
months was $2,400,000 higher than
the corresponding period in 1928.
Pool Elevators Increase
Three years ago there were only
four grain elevators in Alberta belonging to the Alberta Wheat Pool.
Now there are 437, representing an
investment of over $6,000,000.
"The introduction of combines and
auto trucks has speeded up harvesting on the Canadian praries to a
remarkable degree.
