Anyox  Celebrates  St.
Patrick's Day With
Big Dance
The 17th. of 'Aukl Ireland was
celebrated in 'illigent style on Wednesday evening, when a dance was
at the Becreation Hall. The dance
as in former years was sponsored
by the ladies of the Catholic Church
and everything was on a par to the
usual high standard of previous
events. The attendance on Wednesday was unusually large, and
the merry, happy-go-lucky temperament of the sous of Ireland was
much in evidence. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves and at
two a. m. many were loth to leave
the gay assemblage.
The Hall was beautifully decorated, the fresh emerald green, being
the favorite color, and great credit,
is due to T. P. Ryan and J. Hill
foi' the artistic arrangements.
Pynii's celebrated orchestra supplied the musio, and the many old
time selections   rendered  brought
back a flood of memories of life in
the old land.   Forgotton were the
stiff joints of the old stagers as
they gambolled around  the floor
(. outshining some of tho   younger
1 set in agility and mirth making.
A very nice supper,  which   reflects great  credit  on'the ladies,
was supplied at 11 p.m.  and the
dainty refreshments were    much
appreciated.
Mrs. A. Morton was the convenor of the dance committee and she
was assisted by Mrs. J. Weir, Mrs.
C. Buckhaber, Mrs, M. Loftus, Miss
P. O'Neill and Miss Calahan.    To
the above ladies great credit is due
for   the   splendid success of the
evening, and the only regret  of
1 those present was that the celebra-
Ition of the birthday of Ireland's
[Patron Saint only comes once a
1-year.
[Ladies' Basketball Team of
the Mine Club Visit Rupert
The ladies of the Mine basket-
Iball team left for Prince Rupert on
[Thursday night where they will
■meet the Maple Leafs in a home
land home basketball series for the
[Northern B. C. championship.
(Later the Prince Rupert girls will
Jreturn to complete the play-offs in
(Anyox, ooming north by the same
lioat as their rivals. A very extensive programme of entertainment
las been awarded at both points in
I ddition to the games scheduled.
The party included Misses H.
fcalderone, S. Deane, P. McMillan,
|V. Scott, B. O'Neill, J. Calderone.
Irs. H. Chapman and Mr, Fred

Middle School System
Favored by Speakers
at P. T. A. Meeeing
The regular monthly meeting of
the Anyox Parents-Teachers Association was held in the Public
School, on Tuesday March 16th. at
7.30 p.m. The meeting was well
represented, and very interesting
discussions took place on "The
Middle School" as advocated by
the Comniisioners, Messrs. Putman
and Weir in their survey of B. C
school system.
Mr. It. Manzer opened the discussion by giving a general idea of
the "middle school," its purposes
and subjects as embraced by the
report. Mr. B. Thorsteinsson followed by giving a talk on adjustments of middle school pupils to a
High School course, on entering
that institution. Mr. J7 Mitchell
contributed to that discussion bjr
an interesting talk showing how
the introduction of the middle
school in rural districts wou!'' lot
involve a great expense.
Mr. R. 0.'Cutler then followed
by a further discussion as to how
this system could be worked in
urban districts with a comparative
financial gain.
Mr. H. C. Frazer Inspector of
schools concluded by giving an
interesting summary, he drew a
comparison showing a relationship
between the present system and
that of the one discussed, he expressed himself as did the other
speakers as being very favorable to
the introduction of the middle
school.
D. V. Railway Will be
Repaired by Govt.
The repairing of the Dolly Var
den railway by the Homestake
Mining Co. who will again operate
the Toric mine this summer, was
commenced on Saturday. On
Wednesday word was received
from Victoria that the Public
Works Department would undertake repair wor.k. A government
crew under the supervision of J.
Wells commenced work on Friday
morning and it is expected that the
railway will be repaired to Camp
8 by the end of April.
The fact that the Public Works
Department have decided to repair
the railway, as has been formerly
done, was hailed with great satisfaction looally. It was felt that as
the government were, pledged to
reimburse the Homestake Co. that
there was no reason why the work
should not be done under govern
ment supervision, especially as the
equipment used in former years
was lying idle.
The work will now be under the
supervision of J. Wells, who is ripe
in experience of repair work on the
railway. This will allow the
Homestake Co. to concentrate
their energies on the Toric, and
at the same time the present arrangement is more satisfactory to
the people of the town.

Impressive Musical  Service
Held at Union Church
A musical Service was held in
the United Church on Sunday
evening.
The subject of the Service was
"The life of Christ." The pastor
gave an account of tbe epochs in
the life of Jesus. This was illustrated by hymns and selections by
the choir. Mrs. Dunn and Mrs. H.
Armstrong rendered a duet "Tis
Midnight and On Olive's Brow"
and Mr. W. B. Mitrdock sang "The
Ninty-Nine."
Nothing seems to grip the soul,
as does sacred music and so impressed were many of the congregation that suggestions have been
made with regard to having
another service of this type in the
near future.

An enormous amount of money
is invested by the people of the
province each year in numerous
ventures.   A large   share of this
money is obtained from people of
moderate means, who can ill afford
to lose it, but very often poor judgement is used and their hard earned
savings are lost.   Too many people exist today by using their wits.
Often they are unscrupulous, and
would rob a baby of its milk bottle
in order to provide funds for their
questionable  promotions.   British
Columbia and the State of Pensyl-
vania are credited with being the
two easiest places on the North
American    continent to    obtain
money for new enterprises.     It is
well known that is is impossible to,
become wealthy by saving a part
of your everyday wages, in order
to accumulate wealth it is necessary
to invest.   It is also necessary to
invest wisely.   Keep clear of the
high-powered, glib-tongued experienced stock salesman, who promises you anything from 50 per cent
up on your investment, or your
money will be   only   a  pleasant
memory.   It is well known that
a fashionable dressed stranger can
blow into a town, and sell stock in
an enterprise of which you know
nothing about, and a local man
who wishes to raise money on a
legitimate enterprize  would starve,
For those who wish to invest, British Columbia has many legitimate
projects, and for sound investments
this district can not be equaled in
British   Columbia.     Alice Arm
has one of the richest mineral areas
in the province.      Development
work of the past few years, conclusively proving this statement. By
investing your money in an Alice
Arm enterprise, you possess an extremely good chance of considerably increasing your wealth, you
know where your money is going
and you know the men who are
handling it.     Contrary to prevailing opinion, mining is not a hazardous   venture.     Recent   statistics
prove that more commercial enterprises are   failures  than   mining.
Extraction of mineral wealth from
Butte Has 2700 Miles
of Underground
Workings
In round figures, the maximum
annual production of the Butte district is 300,000,000 pounds of copper, 175,000,000 pounds of zinc, 12-
000,000 pounds of lead, 12,000,000
ounces of silver and 60,000 ounces
of gold.
An idea of the magnitude of the
operations is conveyed by the fact
that while Butte has on the surface
253 miles of street, her underground
workings aggregate 2700 miles,
The annual output of the Butte
district in metallic copper, zinc
lead, silver and gold would fill 4569
33-foot railroad cars, making a
train 28^ miles long. Yet this is
only 3 per cent of the total amount
of ore which has to be mined and
treated to produce the above
amount of metal. The value of
the output varies from $65,000,-
000 to $100,000,000, depending
upon market prices of the metals.
More than 2,000,000 a month is
paid to Butte's 20,000 wage-earners
about the largest payroll in the
country for a city of its size.
Production to date from the
Butte district includes:
1—More copper and more silver
than any other country in the
world.
2—One-third of all the copper
mined in the United States.
3—One-sixth of all the copper
mined in the world.
In all more than two billion dollars mineral wealth, of which one
and a half billion has been left here
in the form of wages, freight and
supplies.
More than one hundred shafts
pierce the hill, from which 15,000
miners wrest 20,000 tons of ore a
day. Some of these shafts are
more than 3600 feet deep.

temperature for that month was in
January, 1909, which averaged

ofthe weather this winter haR been
the steadiness of the temperature,

Late W. G. Trethewey
Was Inventor and
Mine Owner
Mr. W. G. Trethewey, who passed away recently at Sarasota,
Florida, was a pioneer of New
Westminster and was well known
throughout the province. He
arrived at the Royal City in 1882
with bis parents from Muskoka,
Out. In mining circles he was
known throughout Canada as the
disooverer of the Trethewey and
the Coniagas mines at Cobalt, Out.
two of the richest mines in the
camp.
His interests were riot confined
to mining. He was the owner of
Trethewoy's Model Farm at Weston, near Soronto, and in 1912 he
purchased a large estate known as
Hoi insteadI Place in Sussex, England, where he resided until 1924.
Part of his fortune was derived
from an air brake coupling which
he invented and sold to the Westinghouse Company. The proceeds
of this sale enabled Mr. Trethewey
to develop the Cobalt properties,
from which the mass of his wealth
was derived.
Gold From Laurentic Being
Recovered
Twenty-five million dollars worth
of gold has been reoovered from
the steamship Laurentic, which
was sunk off the coast of Ireland
in 1917. The oost of the work,
whioh has been going on since 1917
I has been considerably less than
$700,000:
Demand  for   Rubber   Still
Increasing
The demand for rubber is increasing at the  rate  of fifty or sixty
thousand tons annually, a British
report shows, and restrictions or
no   restrictions, the supply   will
scarcely be able to keep up with
jthe demands which are now   in
sight.   When the European count-
Iries recouperfrom their depression
I the demand will increase again.
Ontario  Has Relic of Slave
Days
Mount Salem, East Elgin, Ontario, has a quaint old oharacter iu
Lloyd Graves, who celebrated his
hundred and second birthday afew
days ago. He was one of those
slaves who esoaped from their
owners iu the South before the
civil war in the United States and
made their way to Canada, where
hundreds of the unfortunate oreat-
ures sought refuge. He still acts
as caretaker of the Mount Salem
school.
Red Lake the new mining district in Ontario, is to be the soene
ofthe greatest gold rush since
Yukon, it is said in mining ciroles.
The honeymoon is over when he

"Who was the flrst man?" asked
the visiting minister.
"Adam," the children answered in
chorus,
"Who was the flrst woman?"
"Eve," they all shouted.
"Who was the meekest man?"
"Moses,"
'•Who was the meekest woman?"
Every one was silent. The ohildren
looked blankly at each other, but
none could answer'. Finally a little
hand went up, and the preacher said,
"Well, my boy who was she?,'
"There wasn't any."

Dominion Government Hopes
to Again Reduce Taxes
Hon. James Robb, minister of
finance told a delegation representing the retail trade bureau of Can
ada recently that the government
hoped to make reductions in the
income tax as finances permitted
. The delegation asked that the
present Domiiiioii'tax be abolished
on the ground that it is only conlis
eating capital required to extend
our industries but that it is frightening capital out of industry and
preventing new investments being
made.
Mr. Robb said the government
had decreased the income tax already by enlarging the exemptions
He hoped this process would be
continued. He thought the delegates would agree that those who
served during the war should be
relieved of taxation first.

Port Simpson Reserve Staked
For Coal
Word has been received from
Port Simpson that the natives
there have staked the whole village and the mission property for
coal. For years it has been
thought that coal would be found
beneath the reserve, outcroppings
giving a good indication of the
possibilities. The ground has been
staked on former occasions. Just
now the fever is on them again
and the whole reserve is parcelled
out into tentative coal claims.       ■'
