Basketball League Hold
Tlieir Annual
The Annual General meeting of
the Anyox Community League
Basketball Club was held in tlie
Recreation Hall on Monday. Quite
a number attended the meeting
and plans were made for a sue-1
cessfttl season. The following
officers wore elected: President,
Walter Jones; Vice-President,
Frank Dodsworth, senr.; secretary.
Jimmy Elliott. Their election was
very popular and it is expected
that under their guidance, basketball will play a prominent part
among the indoor sports during
the fall and winter seasons.
T. N. Youngs, chairman of the
Sports.' Committee of the Community League called the meeting
to order. In his opening remarks
he expressed the hope that even a
greater interest would be taken in
basketball this season than in the
past. The Community League he
said, have seoured the services of
a Y.M.C.A. gym. instructor and
basketball referee, who comes highly recommended from Vancouver,
and judging by his manner of hand,
ling the practice games already
held 'this season, will fully live up
to"advancenotices." Mr. Laughlan
(Lecky) Gillies, the gym. instructor,
while not coaching any teams in the
Basketball League, will be always
willing to show the boys a number
of the fine points of the game, such
as pivoting, dribbling, shooting,
etc., and it is expected that a num.
ber of the newer players will soon
be making the more experienced
ones step out to hold their own.
W. Jones, the newly elected
president, who occupied the chair
following his election, thanked
those present for the honor conferred upon him and expressed the
belief that basketball would ex
perienoe a very successful season.
Mr. Elliott also thanked the
meeting for the honor bestowed
upon him and signified his willingness to do everything possible to
further the interests of the greatest
of indoor games during the ooming
It is hoped to have four leagues
in operation, consisting of Senior
"A," which has two teams already
entered—the Celts and Sheiks—and
with the Mine and Concentrator to
hear from, at least three and probably four well matched teams will
contest the honors in this division.   Senior "B" will include the
Moose  Lodges   Celebrate

On Wednesday evening, Septem
ber 24th, the Moose Lodge and
Sister Legionaires held a joint
meeting to celebrate the seventh
anniversary of their Lodges.
After the meeting they held a
dance and supper for friends of the
liodge members. Good music was
provided by J. Peel's orchestra,
and a very pleasant evening was
enjoyed by all.
Mrs. T. P. O'Brien and Mr. J.
Deeming, heads of their respective
Lodges, and their Committee are
to be complimented on the very
fine arrangements which made the
evening a real enjoyable aud complete success.

Basketballers Hold First
Basketball in Anyox this season
seems destined for a very successful
season.   The first tournament was
held on Friday and Saturday last,
and good  results   were   obtained
considering   they   were   the   first
games of the season.   Following
are the scores:

Wm. Hanna returned on Wed
nesday from a trip to Prince
slightly less experienced teams,
and with entries from the Smelter
Football Club and the Celts Football Club, and also a probable entry
from the Mine Football Club.
Judging from the speed and sport-
manship shown on the football
field, these teams will doubtless do
well in this new endeavor.
A girls' league, with entries from
the High School and one other
team is already in existence and the
entry of another team in this league
would help considerably. Many of
the regular players are out practis.
ing and with the peppy bunch of
new players who are showing their
stuff at the gym. the girls' games
promise to be as popular as ever.
Last but not least, .the Intermediate League. This is where all of
our future players must come from,
great interest should therefore be
taken in the teams competing in this
league. Two Scout teams are already in line and a third team in
this division will provide some real
sporty encounters.

known western mining men who

the Mining and Industrial Reoord
J. A. McLaughlin, former mine
superintendent at Copper Mountain, is manager of the mines
department at Uralinstrom on the
Asiatic side of the mountains and
in the same latitude as Sitka,
Alaska, where there are two copper mines under development for
which a 2000 ton concentrator is
now under constuction and should
be in operation this fall. John
Swanson, formerly mine superintendent at Anyox, is now superintendent of one of these mines.
All the mining equipment" is of
German manufacture and everything is of the very latest and most
modem design.
P. E. Peterson, mining engineer
of Vancouver, it located at Kafan,
in Russian Armenia, way down
south between the Black Sea and
the Caspian, whore he is now
supervising the construction of a
1,000 ton mill. Pete is in a warm
climate and had a little trouble in
becoming acclimatized and accustomed to the food of the country.
He was in hospital for a few days
at Evorn and says tlie hospital was
{.the last word in hospitals. It
seems that becoming acclimatized
affects all the western boys in
similar fashion. Young John
Swanson, nephew of the above-
mentioned John, of Anyox, is also
at Kafan and was sick for a longer
period than Pete. After losing
28 lbs. weight, Pete now feels
better than ever.
P. E. Peterson is well known
both in Anyox and Alioe Arm.
Previous to his departure for Rus'
sia he was consulting engineer at
the Saddle property at Hastings
Arm and tlie Tiger property at
Alioe Arm. The many friends of
J. A. Swanson and P. E. Peterson
will be pleased to learn that they
are settled in their new surroundings.

John E. Stark, the veteran
prospector of Alice Arm passed
away at Anyox Hospital on Sunday evening, following a brief illness. The cause of his death was
ureamic prostate disease of seven
day's duration.
Mr. Stark left Alice Arm at the
end of June in order to prospect
the Stikine river district in the
vicinity of Telegraph Creek. He
was taken ill on September 14th at
a point forty miles south of Telegraph creek. He was alone, and
started for Telegraph Creek for
aid. For four days lie struggled
along, arriving there on September
17th. Here he met J. A. Anderson
distriot road superintendent, who
was leaving for the south on
September 21st. and he brought
him out. He received medical
treatment at points on the way,
but was anxious to get to Anyox.
He arrived there on September 24.
His condition beoame worse aud
he passed peacefully away on Sunday the 28th.
Deceased was 71 years of age,
and unmarried. He was the oldest
resident of Alioe Arm, coming here
in the year 1900 in company with
Frank Roundy. He was tlie
owner of several mining properties,
and spent a lot of his time in the
hills prospecting. For several
years previous to his death he was
caretaker at the Dolly Varden
mine. He was highly respected
and his passing is deeply regretted.
The late Mr. Stark was a native
son of British Columbia, being
born at Esquimalt in 1859. He is
survived by his mother, who is
nearly 100 years of age, and a
brother, W. O. Stark, both of
Ganges Harbor.
The body was shipped south on
Wednesday evening for burial at
Ganges Harbor. Thus passes one

Metals are not the only commodity that is affected by world
trade depression. There is, at the
present time an over production in
almost every line of industry, including agricultural products. Over
production means falling prices,
and that is what is .happening
throughout the world today. Modern machinery is to a large extent
due to the world's surplus of
goods, whether it is on the farms,
in the factories or in the mines,
mills, and smelters. It will take
some time for the world to adjust
itself to these new conditions.
History shows that it has been
done before, but the transmission
period has been hard on the masses. What has been done can be
done again. The big mining companies are certainly showing no
great anxiety over the future.
They are still acquiring new properties and making plans for their
development. They are planning
for the future when business adjusts itself to the new conditions.
The whole west is impatiently
waiting for a statement from either
the C. P. R. or the Government
as to when and where the railway from the Peace River Country to the coast will be built.
President Beatty, of the C. P. R.
who spent five days in the Peace
River district this fall promises an
early announcement. Thousands
of settlers are flocking into the
country, and the building of a railway cannot be long delayed. The
building of this railway next year
would solve the unemployment
problem in the west.
Premier Co. Has Paid Dividends of $15,000,000
Regular quarterly dividend of
Premier Gold Mining Company
was paid on October 1, 1930, the
third this year. The disbursement
will be on the basis of 6 cents per
share, or $300,000. This brings the
aggregate dividends paid by Premier to over $15,000,000, the first
being paid December, 1921.
In addition to its original property, the Premier operates Porter
Idaho and Prosperity, both of which
are shipping, and is developing
also the Silverado, all in tbe Portland Canal district.

Price of Copper May
Slowly Improve
Toronto—A slow improvement in
the statistical position of copper is
expected in the report for September and October, if the anticipations
of a number of producers, who feel
that the industry has touched the
bottom, are- realized. A turn for
the better is looked for, despite the
increase of more than 25,000 tons
in stocks of refined copper in North
and South America in August.
At the end of August stocks of
refined copper were 347,688 tons,
the largest total since July, 1921,
when the industry was gradually
working off the post-war surplus
of the metal. The total now on
hand is within 20,000 tons of the
peak of the post-war glut of copper
and is more than three times the
stocks reported on September 1,
1929, which totalled 104,372 tons.

New Tariff Is Flexible
To Meet Emergencies
Ottawa, September 27; (Special
to the Herald.) The first session of
Parliament with Mr. Bennett as
Prime Minister is over and while
there will not be unanimity of opinion as to the effectiveness of legislation passed in meeting the unemployment situation there is an
agreement that Mr. Bennett carried out one of the pre-election
promises in assembling Parliament
in record time and of disposing of
the business of the session in like
Details? of the expenditure of the
$20,000,000 voted for unemployment relief will only develop as
appropriations are made during the
next six months, though the general outline of the Government's
intentions were made clear to the
House. This measure, of course,
was of an emergency character.
The substantial legislation looking to definite economic improvement was that effecting tariff
schedules on key industries and
the alteration in regulations upon
which dutiable values may be fixed.
The latter places within the hands
of the Government very radical
powers. In effect the Ministry now
possesses all the authority required
to lower or raise duties by Order-
in-Council. The tariff becomes a
flexible instrument, instantly available to meet any conditions. Once
before similar power was taken by
a Government in respect to natural
products. This is now extended
to cover manufactures and will be
applied, Mr. Bennett said, to "give
Canadians an equal opportunity in
their own country."

Young Globe Girdlers
At Telegraph Creek
While J. A. Anderson was at
Dease Lake recently, he met Mr.
and Mrs. Wm. H. Albee who are
on a world walking tour. These
two globe trotters had considerable
difficulty witli the police in June,
at Prince George, who were loth
to allow them to travel north, fearing that they were too inexperienced. Mr. Anderson states to the
Herald that no fears need be entertained as to their capability of
taking care of themselves. When
he met them at Dease Lake they
were hale and hearty. After procuring footwear at Telegraph
Creek they continued their journey
to Dawson via Atlin.
Their rations ran low before
their arrival at Dease Lake and

The Portland Canal Power Co.
will start work this fall on their
big project, states the Stewart
News in their last issue.
The programme this year calls
for a power tunnel 800 feet in
length and a diameter of 12 feet.
The dam at Davis Lake will be 250
feet high and so constructed that
it can be raised an additional 150
feet. The dam will create a storage reservoir two miles long and a
half a mile wide, and will have a
storage capacity of 30,000 acre
The sum of $50,000 will be spent
on engineering work alone before
the first of next year. Work of
clearing the right-of-way for the
transmission line may also be commenced this fall.
It is expected that the full capacity of the plant will be 26,000
