Active Season
Taking advantage of every spell
of fine weather, the various oraft
housed along the Anyox waterfront

holiday on their oraft and enjoyed
every mile of the voyage, and Harold Spencer has just returned from
a run to Port Simpson.
Renovation has given plaoe to
reoreation, and daily some of these
boats may be seen making off in all
directions, putt-putting home iu
the evening.

Close Call for Rangers
In Mine Game
After having things pretty wel)
their own way, especially in the second half, and doing everything but
score, the Mine came out on the
wrong end of a 1-0 score in the
League game on Thursday the 10th.
The game was full of action and
furnished lots of excitement and
thrills for the handful of faithful
fans who attended. Hitherto lacking a forceful forward line, the
Mine this time had an aggregation
which was much more effective.
Jimmy Home, who has not played
since the early part of the season,
played a tricky game at inside left
and filled a much-needed .want.
Herzl was replaced by Ernie Moore
in goal, who has lost none of his
sureness between the sticks. In
the first half the nice combination
of the Ranger forwards soon had
the miners on the defensive, Buchanan booting in a fast one about
fifteen minutes after the start.
After the interval the Mine pressed
determinedly and the play was
chiefly round the Rangers end, but
all the Mine efforts were of "no avail.
On the play this game was certainly
the miners, and they are to be congratulated on their courage and
their "never say die" spirit. ' They
have shown a splendid sportsmanship throughout.
The teams: Mine, Moore; Graney
Dixon; Clarke, Dyer, Martin;
Home, Ferguson, Phillips, Jim
Home, Jelbert. Rangers: Hunter;
Calderoni, Hamilton; Galbraith,
Francis, Shields; Peel, Donaldson,
Buchanan, Ellison, Allan.

this district, where overland travel
is often slow and arduous, and
where transportation by water is
not always available just when
needed. The plane-will carry a

Raft Built By Anyox Rovers

enjoy that enticing raft. ALICE   ARM   AND  ANYOX  HERALD,  Friday, August 18. 1933

During the first six months of
1932 Great Britain imported
17,091 tons of copper from Canada. In the same period of 1931
the total imports from Canada
were only 640 tons, an increase of
2,570 per cent. Great Britain also
largely increased her sales of cop
per from Rhodesia during the past
year. It is expected that sales of
copper from both Canada and
Rhodesia will be still further in
creased during the present year.
These figures show plainly that
Empire trade is expanding, and
will continue to increase as foreign
countries raise higher tariff walls.
Imports of lead and zinc from
Canada have also shown a remarkable increase during the past year,
as has also almost every other
commodity produced in Canada
for export trade. The result of
the two Imperial Conferences is
now being beneficially felt. Complaints have, however, been voiced
in Great Britain by some manufacturers that their goods are practically barred from Canada by
special tariffs. These complaints
are being investigated, and if it is
found that such is the case and the
cause of friction not removed, trade
between Canada and Great Britain
is bound to show a shrinkage instead of an increase. No country,
in these times of fierce competition,
can afford to ignore its best customer when purchasing goods.
Increased Empire trade can only
be built up by striking a balance
between imports and exports. If
we sell our copper, lead, zinc and
other commodities in Great Britain
we should be prepared to take an
equal value of goods in return.
How Everyone Wishes For
Inflation To Proceed
If the mines of British Columbia
had decreased their production
such as the logging camps and
sawmills have during the past four
years, the province would be bankrupt and incalculable misery
would have resulted for everyone
in every line of business. Scores
of towns from the international
boundary in the south to Atlin in
the north would have closed down
and become deserted. Thousands
would have been thrown out of
employment that labor in mines,
smelters and mills, and other thousands that furnish the mining companies with supplies and their
employees with foodstuffs would
necessarily find their occupation
gone. Transportation company
employees, both railway and steamship would have been greatly reduced, manufacturers, wholesale
and retail houses, farmers, of all
kinds in fact everyone would have
"What I want," said the farmer,
"is inflation of the kind that will
raise the prices of the crops that I
sell, but will have no effect on the
price of clothing or farm machinery."
''What I want," said the merchant, "is inflation of the kind that
will raise the prices of the goods
that I have for sale, but will have
no effect on rent or other items of
"What I want," said the manu
facturer, "is inflation of the kind
that will raise the price on my fin
ished goods, but will have no effect
on wages or the cost of raw materi-,
"What we want," said everybody
at once, "is .inflation of the kind
that will blow up our own balloons,
but will leave the other fellow's
just the same size as before."—The

Railway Earnings Show Big
Traffic earnings of the Canadian
railways for July show an aggregate
gain of nearly a million dollars in
comparison with the same month of

comparisons. Gross earnings of

$492,727 higher than in July of
1932, making a total increase of

Great Railroad Has Fine Police Force
White gloves, part of their official dress, are
especially appropriate to members of the
Canadian Pacific Railway Police, not only for the
smart touch thus added to their blue uniform, but
because they are emblematic of the force itself; an
organization of spotless reputation and unfailing
courtesy. Not only is this picked body of men,
uniformed and ununiformed, the safeguard of the
property of the world's greatest transportation
system and its thousands of patrons, but its members
are friends and mentors to countless travellers in all
part of the Dominion. Wherever the company has
, an interest, be it a great terminal, a wharf or a vast
freight yard, "the man in blue" is to be found.
Many of the constables and their officers are ex-
servicemen and at their head is Brigadier-General
E. de B. Panet, C.M.G., D.S.O., A.D.C., a distinguished Canadian soldier with a splendid record
as a staff officer during the Great War. The force ebb
won many trophies for first-aid work and also in
revolver shooting, its Ontario team having captured
the Canadian police revolver championship for the
whole Dominion this year.

the volunteer hand pump and
bucket brigade of 1860, to the fire
fighting equipment of today, and
the contrast is nowhere better
illustrated than in this group of
pictures of Montreal's new Fire
Alarm Central Station, situated
on   the   northeastern   slope   of
Mount Royal, which was officially opened by His Worship,
Mayor Rinfret, on June 29th,
when the new central office took
over the supervision of all fire
calls and the old board was reported "Dead" after twenty-four
years' service. Owing to the
phenomenal growth of the city in
the past few years the facilities
of this old board have been outgrown.
This two million dollar project
has taken over two years to complete. It now holds a unique position in the fire fighting circles
of the Empire, and indeed of the
world, since it is the largest Central Fire Alarm Station to be
found anywhere in the world.
It is designed not alone for today, but very wisely provision is
made for expansion, with a view
to the day when the whole island
will constitute Greater Montreal ALICE   ARM   AND  ANYOX   HERALD,   Friday, August 18. 1933
Daughter of Mr. & Mrs.
C. McMillan Weds
Miss Audrey M. McMillan, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Charles McMillan, of Anyox, was married on
Sunday, July f6th. to Mr. Armine
T. Good, son of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur
Good, of Mount Vernon. The wedding took place at the home of Mr.
and Mrs. James Kerr, Seattle, the
Rev. C. E. Van Hise performing
the ceremony.
The bride was daintily gowned
in imported white organdie, with a
long veil of silk net held in place
by a wreath of lilies of the valley
and yellow rose buds. Miss Lois
Thurlow, the bridesmaid, wore an
orchid organdie gown and white
hat. Russell McMillan, brother of
the bride, acted as best man. After
the reception the young couple left
on a short honeymoon. They will
make their home in Seattle. The
bride's mother and her grandmother
Mrs. J. K. Russell, and younger
sister Virginia, together with about
twenty five intimate friends, attended the ceremony. The bride is

Anyox Sport Fixtures  Are
Cancelled By Rain
Our columns, which have been
replete with sports news for several
issues, will contain only a small
amount of such items this week.
The reason for this is the belligerent attitude of tlie weatherman.
He ft owned on golf, stopped baseball, and put a wet blanket on the
tennis championships. A football
fixture also had to be postponed
and it takes something to do that!
However, as soon as he smiles
out come the tennis rackets and
baseball bats, for there are important championships lo be decided.
It is the fervent hope of all lovers
of sport in Anyox that a spell of
fine weather yet remains, for them
to complete the various schedules.
Ideal Holiday Conditions At
Alice Arm
The town of Alice Ann and surrounding oountry never looked
better than it did this week. The
flowers are in full bloom: the berries, both garden and wild, are
ripe; the fishing is good; everything is green and restful to the
eye, and the weather has been
warm. Tucked away among the
mountains of the rugged north
coast this beauty spot is an ideal
holiday resort, and the many visitors from Anyox this year are all
sorry to depart when duty calls
them back to the routine of work
in the smelter town.

Cubs Enjoy Outing Larcom
During the past week the waters
around Larcom Island have been
emptied of fish—the Cubs caught
them all, and how good those fish
tasted. Twenty eager, bright-eyed
Cubs started out on Monday morn
ing last in charge of Cubmaster
Bamforth, and didn't they enjoy
the outing! Everything that Cubs
should do was done, and those
tanned youngsters are back, looking and feeling a hundred per cent
better for a glorious holiday.

Big Fish—Happy Fisherman
Hook a 35 pound musky for
yourself like this one and
then sympathize with J. A. Gibson of Toronto who (ought for
four and a half hours near French
River Bungalow Camp 215 miles
north of Toronto, to land It. It
Is the seventh musky to be caught
near the camp by guests this season and was caught on Friday,
July 21st so fisherman's luck
seems to be a complication, of
opinion.   The scene  took  place
late in the afternoon right in front
of the outlying camp dock in full
view of guests who lined the shore
and started fires in order to see
the finish, forgetting dinner and
later celebrating the latest entry
in the bungalow camp annual
musky competition fittingly. Since
every musky to date has practically been larger than the last,
the winner of the challenge shield
this year may become famous...
if he can land it.
Long Trip In Small Boat
Mr. and Mrs. Geo. Warwick recently made a trip to Alaskan
waters in their open launch. The
furtherest point reached was Juneau, which is quite an undertak
ing for such a small boat.
With rising prices for wool and
a vast Chinese market for wheat
caused partly by advantageous
monetary exchange, Australia 1b
rising steadily to a greatly improved economic position, declared Warwick Fairfax, managing
director of the Sydney Morning
Herald, Australia's oldest newspaper, a traveller recently on the
Canadian Australasian liner Niagara.
Meeting at a time when the
nations of the world were never
so much to need of close co-operation economically and politically,
the fifth biennial conference of
the Institute of Pacific Relations
to be held at the Banff Springs
Hotel, August 14-28, is regarded
as a possible turning point in the
affairs of all the nations bordering the Pacific.
