Disposal Of Community
League Funds Are
Interest iu the Annual General
Meeting of the Beach Branch,
A. C. L. held in the Reoreation
Hall on Wednesday last, centred
around the disposal of the funds
of the League. The hall was almost
HI led with members, who listened
with much interest to the suggestions made, as to what was best to
be done with monies on hand, and
accruing from the sale of equipment
etc. President It. Manning was in
the chair. The Secretary, V. S.
.McRae, read the minutes of the
previous annual meeting. The
president presented a report on the
activities of the League during the
past year. Discussion as to the
election of a new Council for the
present year, resulted in the present
Council being asked to carry on
for the, ensuing year.
Suggestions Made
1. Use money on hand (at present around $4000.00) to lower the
cost of transporting the people of
the camp to Vancouver and points
south. Details of the suggestion
were duly presented.
2. Endow the Hospital at Stew-,|
art with the funds available, as a
memorial to the people of Anyox.
3. Take care of any families in
the camp who may be in need of
financial assistance at this time.
4. Divide money among mem
hers of the League in the form of
shares, according to their length of
These were the principle sugges-
tions made, as to the disposal of
funds at present held hy the League
and which may be derived from
the sale of equipment and liquid
assets, made by members at the
Annual General Meeting of the
Beach Branch A. C. L. on Wednesday last. Each suggestion was
fully discussed, it being finally de-
aided that the distribution of these
funds be left until a later meeting,
when further particulars of the
various schemes would be available
It was also decided that in the
meantime the secretary ascertain
where, and how. the disposable
equipment of the League could be
sold to the best advantage..
Also that the books of the League
Library—other than technical
works, which are the property of
the Granby Company—be donated
to some worthy institution or to
the relief oamps.
Owners of D.  V. Railway
Have Two Years To
Take Up Steel ,
Legislation was introduced in the
Legislature last Saturday, for the
taking over by the government of
the right-of-way of the Dolly Varden Railway. It was decided that
the owners be given two years to
remove the steel rails, and if this is
not done then the government will
take it over intact.
The railroad is seventeen miles
in length and starts at the Alice
Ann wharf and ends at the foot of
the Dolly Varden hill in the Upper
Kitsault Country. It is owned by
the Taylor Engineering Co. of
Vancouver. It is understood, that
when a charter was granted to
them, they agreed to provide transportation up the Kitsault Valley.
Since 1921 they have failed to do
It is the only means of communication up the valley and since 1921
the railway has been kept in a
state of repair by the government
so that transportation facilities
could be enjoyed by mining companies, and prospectors.    .
Mr. W. £ Asselstine M. L. A.
recently assured the Alice Arm
Chamber of Mines that he would
take the matter up iu the Legislature and he has evidently done so.
Elks Beaten By Vandals)
In a Thrilling And
Brilliant Game
U. S. A. Appropriates Money
For Highway Survey
J. Hauber arrived home at Alice
Arm on Monday from a trip to
outside towns.
The United States Senate has
passed a bill appropriating $2,100,-
000 for construction of a highway
to connect the Pacific Northwest
with British Columbia and Alaska.
The measure, introduced by Republican Leader Charles L. McNary, Oregon, authorizes the
President to negotiate an agreement
with the Canadian Government for
location of the proposed road.
It is now for the Canadian Government to decide if they will take
advantage of the generosity of the
United States or not.
Fans were treated to a thrilling
exhibition of the hoop game on
Friday 22nd. when the Elks looked
horns with the Vandals A in a replayed league fixture and were
vanquished in the last few minutes.
All through, it looked as though
the Vandals were due for a beating.
Elks piled up 8 pts. before the
Vandals broke the ice, and kept
ahead until just before the breather
when the miners made it 11 all.
Vandals had their regular turnout, except that Sanderson subbed
for Gourlay. Some beautiful plays
^featured the scrapi a one-hand over
lead shot by Tony Calderoni and a
pivotal shot under the basket by
the same player, were a treat to
watch. Fred Calderoni, aided by
his brother Tony, and by Kulai,
made 13 points iu brilliant style,
while Sanderson and Woodman
were safe at guard I. Davies was
in fine form and played with flashing speed, while. McBryde and
Phillips were at tbfcir best. . Currie
was untiring and made a one-hand
shot in the second half that tied
the score. Two baskets by the
miners in the closing minutes
cinched the game.
The teams: Elks: Davies 2, McBryde 6, Phillips 3, Currie 2,
Steele 4, Scott 2, Gibson.
Vandals: F. Calderoni 13, T.
Calderoni 7, Kulai 3, Sanderson,
Woodman. J. Lazorek was in
efficient control.
Ketchikan Basketballers
Take Bad Beating
From a spectacular point of view
the hoop game on Monday last
between the Ketohikaii Owls and
Anyox All-stars was disappointing.
Word of the ability of this native team had been spread around,
and a full house greeted the visitors when they took the floor.
Although beaten by the large
score of 55 to 12, the Alaskans
gave a pleasing exhibition of good
clean basketball. Their defeat was
no doubt due in part to two causes:
the strangeness of the hall and
staleness. Five games iu a row.
together with cramped sleeping
quarters would make any team
stale. Only four personals were
registered throughout the game,
three against Anyox and one
against Ketchikan.
The teams: Ketchikan, P. Johnny 2, W. Allen, P. Atkinson 5,
G. Inman 1, L. Pawsey, S. Burtpu,
E. Peterson 3.
Anyox: Kulai 12, F. Calderoni
10, T. Calderoni 16, McDonald 2.

New Rules Regarding
Mining Roads And
Special Boat Rates To Be
Sought When Anyox Closes
In the discussion which took
plaoe as to the feasibility of using
available funds to assist in providing lower boat rates for people
leaving oamp, Mr. W. B. Maxwell,
General Superintendent, stated
that the Company would doubtless
make every effort to secure sjiecial
rates from the shipping companies.
This statement was received with
much applause.
Series Of Old Time Dances
Held At Mine
Warriors Are Beaten By
Foundry 28-18
Although they were ahead four
points at half-time iu the Senior B
League game on Friday 22nd
Warriors went down before the
spirited and aggressive play of the
Foundry to lose 28-18. Warriors
tried vainly to put a crimp in the
moulders' cast-iron armour, and
put everything they had into the
fray. Even Dame Luck treated
them coldly, as many a well-tagged
shot failed to land.
It was a good clean game, well
handled by referee Lazorek. Scott
and Patriok made the notches for
the Foundry, the former with 16
and the latter with 10 points. The
teams: Warriors, D. McDonald 2,
G. Kent 4, Thompson 4, Phillips 4,
Cadillac 4, Chenoski, Gibson, Flye.
Foundry: Scott 16, Patrick 10,
Churoh 2, Parsons, Hamilton, Yelland, O'Neill, Cloke.
A few generous folk to supply
the eats--a committee of willing
helpers to look after the supper—
some good-natured musicians to
furnish the music—a capable M. C.
to manage the floor—and lo, the
dance is on! Not just an ordinary
dance, but one which includes the
quadrilles, minuet, military two-
step, valeta, and other old-time
dances. These enjoyable affairs are
being held every two weeks, with
a "big dance" every now and then.
The hall is available through the
courtesy of the A. C. L. so that the
folk at the Mine have a ready recreation easily within their reach
and the bounds of their purse. For
an enjoyable evening we recommend these dances.

Applicants for financial aid iu
the construction and re-construction of trails to mining properties
hereafter, will be required to answer
a number of questions, which are
sat out in a form being distributed
by the Department of Mines.
This announcement was made this
week by the Honourable G. S.
Pearson, Minister of Mines.
In explanation, he stated that
his investigations had convinced
him that the present system could
be much improved. The principal
object, he said, was to provide more
assurance that such financial help
as it is possible to extend should be
received by bona fide prospectors
and small mine operators engaged
in the opening up of promising
prospects. He felt, also, that this
phase of the re-organization that
has been under consideration, would
make for sane economy, without at
all interfering with reasonable allowances, where the same are
Mr. Pearson said further, that
it was impossible for him at this
time to make any statement, as to
the amount of funds that might be
available throughout the present
year for mine trail assistance.
That would depend on the estimates, which had yet to go before
the Legislative Assembly. He was
hopeful, however, that there would
be no less available than was the
case last year, and it was the desire
of the Department to make such
arrangements as are necessary to
apply the changes decided upon, in
such good time, that all who may
be affected, will have full information of the regulations with which
they will be required to comply.
The form is made up of three
distinct statements; the first over
the signature of the applicant; the
second over that of the Mining
Recorder of the Mining Division in
which the property is situated;
and the third over the signature
of the Resident Engineer of the
The applicant is asked to set out
the name of the road, trail, or
property for which aid is requested;
to give his own name; the number
of his Free Miner's Certificate; the
location of tbe mining property;
the distance of the mining property
from a highway or trunk trail;
what mineral, or minerals have
been discovered on the property; to

Condemning a Mining
How much development work is
necessary before a mining property
is proved a dud is an obstinate
question. Certainly a few hundred
feet of tunnelling or a few diamond
drill holes does not always prove
that ore in commercial quantities
is lacking. Prove of this is substantiated by the development work
undertaken in the early days of the
Premier mine. On this property—
that has paid around fourteen
millions of dollars in dividends-
hundreds of feet of tunnel were
driven during early development.
No ore of any consequence was
located, and the promoters threw it
up as worthless. A parallel can be
found in the early development of
the Big Missouri mine. Development work was undertaken by several companies, and the property
was dropped as not being satisfactory. Today, however, under expert development, it bids to become a big tonnage producer at an
early date. These are only two
properties mentioned, but there are
doubtless many others. One of the
big drawbacks to the mining industry of British Columbia is the faintheartedness of many investors in
mining shares. It invariably happens that if a mining property on
which development work is being
done does not show aii appreciable
ore tonnage within a few months
the investors become panicky and
withdraw their support. Work is
stopped. The property is condemned as worthless and it may carry
this stigma for twejity years or
perhaps forever. But is it worthless? There are, of course, a great
many properties on which no work
at all should have been done, and
on the other hand there are many
on which not enough work has
been done. It often happens that
it takes years of painstaking hard
work to develop a mine, even a
moderate producer, but the average
investor cannot seem to understand
it. The majority want quick action
for their money. They are too impatient to wait three or four years
before their stock begins to bound
upward. And that is why we see
so many mining properties on which
a little work has been done labelled
as worthless.

to certify that the mining property
is situated in the Mining Division,
and is in good standing as to his
records, and to give any information in his possession regarding
highways, secondary roads, and

applicant's mining property.
It is required of the Resident
Mining Engineer that he set out
any personal knowledge he has of
the applicant and as to his standing
as a prospector; also his know
ledge of the mining property to be
benefitted, and whether its economic possibilities warrant the trail expenditure requested; whether the
district generally that would be
served by the trail is so mineralized
that it would, in his opinion, repay
opening it up by the trail or trails
under consideration.
Finally, he is asked to recommend
the sum that, in his opinion, would
be justified to aid in the trail con
An important feature of this
change in procedure is that the applicant's application for trail assistance must be in the hands of the
Resident Engineer on or before the
first day of May in each year. The
purpose of this is to enable the engineer to dispose of all trail applications, as far as possible, before
the beginning of the field season,
thus permitting him more time for
organized field work each year;
and the Provincial Mining Engineers will be asked to undertake a
thorough survey of a district or part
of a district in order to determine,
as far as practicable, its economic
mineral possibilities.
This class of work will be distinct
from the Geological Survey. Its
design will be to give the prospector authoritative information on the
mineral possibilities of different
parts of the province. The work of
the Resident Engineers will be to
give the prospector detailed inform-i
ation regarding the rock formations
and mineralization on his property.
It is explained that the engineers
have been prevented from engaging
seriously in this line of constructive
activity because of the necessity,
in midseason, of jumping from one
mining prospect to another for the
purpose of passing  upon applica-
Bank  Heads  Realize   The
Importance of Mining
"Mining and metallurgy have
been sources of great and increasing strength to Canada," said S. H.
Logan, general manager of Canadian Bank of Commerce, in his annual
report. "The official estimate of
the value of total mineral production
for 1934, $278,000,000, is impressive
in itself, but I should like to quote
a few facts which furnish a more
adequate view of the magnitude of
mining and its associated form of
activity, metallurgy, and the imposing places they now occupy in our
national life. Over ten thousand
mines, quarries, petroleum wells,
mills, smelters, refineries, etc.,
capitalized at about 800 million
dollars, are now in operation with a
labor force, apart from that engaged
in the development of new properties, of more than sixty thousand
people, drawing at least 70 million
dollars yearly in wages and salaries."

Flowers are among the assets ot the Canadian Pacific
Railway. It is the policy, of the Company to
establish permanent flower gardens at every station
along the long line ot track stretched across the con-
In the very early days of the railroad the pioneers
were too husy attending to the task of opening up new-
roads to give much attention to flowers, yet even hack
ln the early days one ol the C. P. R. employees produced a few varieties of flower seeds <in his own plot
and distributed them amongst his friends at some of
the stations with the object of starting flower gardens
along the line. Thus took place over 30 years ago,
and to-day the Company spends a considerable amount
producing and distributing seeds and shrubs of all
kinds to station agents along the lines. The Company
maintains a floral department with (headquarters al
•he Windsor Street Station in Montreal.
• In carrying out this work a great numiber of trees,
seeds and perennial plants are used annually. Suitable trees such as ash, elm and maple, are supplied,
and shrubbery such as honey-suckle, lilac, barberra,
elder, spirea. welgclla and many other varieties together with a long list of ibed flowers. Vines are also
supplied to cover .buildings and fences surrounding
stations. For thl3 purpose Virginia creepers and
'apanese ivy are considered host.
Daring the past thirty yt-ars tho encouraging Influ

the Inauguration of floral societies all over the country, many of the officials of the Company being members of these societies. It Is pleasing to remember
that the work ln connection •with the gardens Is credited directly to the agents and employees of the station, for it is carried out mostly In their own time,
through their enthusiasm ln beautifying the stations
of which they are ln charge. The C. P. R. recognizes
this effort and much interest Is aroused by the annual
competitions on both eastern and western lines of the

Ketchikan    Team   Showed
True Sportsmanship
Anyox fans were greatly impressed by the splendid spirit of sportsmanship shown by the recent
visitors from Ketchikan. Their
clean style of play and strict intention to the rules of the game, was
much admired. Soaring figures
against them on the score board,
and the evident impossibility of
ever catching up, made not the
slightest difference, they played
clean throughout. It was a splendid
example—and perhaps very opportune at this time'—of the art of
losing. This team will be remembered, not so much by their play as
bv their fine spirit of sportsmanship.

afternoon last, the halibut fishing

This well known native team
was in charge of G. Pawsey, with
Ed. Peterson as captain. They
left Ketchikan on Saturday, February 16th. and played games at
Port Simpson on the 18th., 19th.
and 20th., and at Prince Rupert on
the 21st. and 22nd. On Monday
the 25th. they played against an
all-star team at Anyox, and sailed
at midnight of that day for their
home at Ketchikan.

Sportsmanship is exemplified in

Foundry Doubles Score On
Vandals B Team
Vandals B put up a determined
fight against the Foundry in the
game on Monday last, only to lose
27 to 13 after a hectic innings. At
half-time they were only four points
behind and the game was anybody's.
Close checking up to this point had
kept the scoring low, but after the
breather, Foundry broke away and
were never in danger. Vandals
were handicapped in having only
one spare and they were also without Heinkey. Foundry were at full
strength, with Scott and Patrick
playing a great game.
The teams: Vandals R White 4,
Southey 1, McMillan 8, Whitaker,
W. Home, McCloskey. Foundry;
Cloke 4, Scott 11, Patrick 7, Deeth,
Yelland, Church 2, D. O'Neill 2,
Parsons 1.
