members of the Anyox Branch of
the Canadian Legion, B. E. S. L,
foregathered at the Elks'"Dugout"
ostensibly for the purpose of a
housewarming for their new quarters, recently opened, but in reality
to do honor to their departing
comrade, H. B. Porteous who is
leaving the district.
A pleasing program of songs
aud music bad been arranged,
vocal items being given by W. F.
Eve, R. Lavery, Tom Pinckney
and J. Varnes, while the musical
turns were attended to by the
Legion Orchestra.
At a suitable interval in the
proceedings the president, Wm. F.
Eve, on behalf of the members,
presented Comrade Porteous with
a silver cigarette case. He referred
to Bert's long membership in the
Legion in Anyox, his popularity,
and his valuable work as Treasurer
ofthe" Anyox Branch. IiT'replying,
Bert assured his comrades that no
souvenir was necessary to remind
him of the very pleasant associa
tions he would cherish of the
Legion in Anyox, and expressed
his regret that his connection with
the Branch was about to be severed. The meeting closed with the
singing of: "For He's a Jolly
Good Fellow," "Auld Lang Syne,"
aud "The King."

during their term of office.
Government Men Issue
Golf Challenge
Four members of tho Provincial
Government staff at Anyox have
issued a challenge to a similar
number of employees of the Granby
Company for a golf match. There
is no doubt but that the challenge
will he acoepted. While the Gran
by Company have a larger number
to choose from than the Government, the latter team will be
strengthened by the inclusion of
thu local champion, and the others
are no mean golf players. It is

Work on Kitsault River
Wing Dam Closes
As an expression of esteem and
appreciation of her untiring work
during the training and preparations for the recent "Sunrise'"
Cabaret, the ladies of the "New
York Follies" who took so successful a part, have presented Mrs.
V. S. McRae with a silver sandwich plate.
The work of lengthening and
strengthening the wing dam above
the town of Alice Arm, which was
undertaken by the Department ol
Publio Works to relieve unemployment in this district, was concluded last week-end.
The work occupied three months
and an average' of 11 men were
employed. The dam has been extended a distance of 500 feet, and
the weak spots have been strengthened at all points. It is considered
that the dam is now perfectly safe
at all points to resist any pressure
of water when the Kitsault River
is in flood.
A small crew of men are now engaged in straightening' out the
course of the river above the big
suspension bridge. During the
high water periods last fall, a
gravel bar of considerable propor
tions formed in the centre of the
stream. A drag line is now en
gaged in lowering the bed of the
river ou the east side, and unless
unforseen circumstances happen
the river will cut a wide and deeper channel here during high water
and convert the bed of the stream
into a straight line. At the present time the main stream strikes
the dam head-on, but the present
operations will divert a lot of
water to the centre of the channel

ding-dong battle, both sides having
a tally of fourteen points at the
interval. In'the first half Dwyer
made use of his height to score 13
of the Micos points, while Dresser
and J. Gillies bagged most for tbe
Sheiks. Iu the second half the
Sheiks made several changes and
the game continued to be very hotly contested. In spite of the Micos
losing two of their men ou account
of excess fouls, their substitutes
carried on to help the Micos win
by four points. Scores: Sheiks.

B, MOSS, Editor and Publisher,
The possibility of higher prices
for silver is slowly improving. The
world is now commencing to realize that sooner or later silver must
be called upon to assist gold in
carrying the financial burdens of
the world. The shortage of gold
is becoming more acute each year,
and as the wealth and population
of the world increases, the demand
for gold will become greater. It
has been shown by several economists that a world shortage of
gold inevitably leads to falling
prices, such as we are witnessing
today. There are no known large
deposits of gold existing that can
supply the present deficiency. That
being the case, the financiers of the
world will be forced to adopt bimetallism. There seems to be no
alternative. The adoption of bimetallism would not probably
solve all of the world's troubles,
but it would greatly assist as a
stabilizing influence and the great
trade depressions, one of which we
are now experiencing would be
considerably minimized. Bimetallism would of course, mean a standard market price for silver, and
this would automatically eliminate
China's present financial difficulties,
and allow her 400,000,000 population to trade with the rest of
the world.
Brief Items Provincial
A promising' discovery of lead-
zinc-silver has been made north of
Port Hardy, Vancouver Island.
Grain shipments through Vancouver to a recent date totalled
36,545,443 bushels as against 18,
679,810 bushels for the same period
a year ago.
Did you ever visualize the fact that
more fortunes have been made in
modern times by advertising than
any other means? Perhaps you
have never realized it, but it is
nevertheless true. Constant advertising alone has been the result
of the tremendous sales of nationally known goods. The manufacturers of these goods have learned
by experience that as soon as advertising is curtailed the demand
for their goods decreases in proportion, To those who have
anything to sell even in small towns
such as Anyox and Alice Arm,
advertising is just as essential to
them as the big manufacturer.
Whether you have merchandisp to
sell, fire or life insurance, a meal, a
ticket lo a picture show, dance or
concert, a game of pool, or whatever it is, then don't be afraid lo
advertise it in your local paper.
Some figures taken to January
I st of this year seem rather at variance with a period of depression.
The number of motor cars registered in the province to January 31,
1931 was 62,119 as against 58,522
for the same period a year ago, an
increase of 3,597. The number of
telephones this year is 126,25.1 as
against 122,359 for the previous
year, an increase of 3,892. In the
number of telephones to population
British Columbia bus an easy lead
over all the other provinces.
During 1930, in Greater Vancouver 27 new manufacturing establishments began operations with
an estimated payroll of over $300,
000, and 36 established factories
invested over $1,500,000 in new
buildings and plant expansion.
There are about 1600 manufacturing plants in Vancouver. last year
the volume of business on the whole
was below that of 1929, with an
average about equalling that of
Following the success of fur-
farming, an attempt is now being
made to promote "fish farming"
in British Columbia. An undertaking is under way to obtain from
the Provincial Government the
lease of a small lake for the purpose
of stocking it with whitefish, lake
trout or other commercial species,
which in three or four years could
be taken out to supply the market
with fresh water fish.
Advertising shows that you are
alert, and anxious for business, and
there is just as much advantage for
you in advertising your small business in a small paper as the big
business who spends millions of
dollars on advertising. There is
no surer way of your message
reaching the public than by advertising. If you have anything to
sell, try an advertisement in the
Herald, and you will probably be
surprised at the results obtained
from the small investment.

This is the Montreal Symphony Orchestra which will
broadcast a Fireside Symphony Hour every Saturday between 6.30 and 6.30 p.m. E.S.T., starting
Saturday, Feb. 21, over the network of the Canadian
Pacfific Railway Company's Telegraphs from Winnipeg
to Halifax, It will play symphony concerts of a very
high order and the conductor, Mr. Douglas Clarke,
Dean of the Faculty of Music, McGill University,
(inset) has drawn up a aeries of programmes which will
be representative of three centuries of music.
The programmes will be chronological in character
and each will be representative of music written
between the 17th, century and the present. They will
begin with works or part of works by Bach, Handel,
Haydn or Mozart, continue with Beethoven or Brahms,
then go on to Wagner or Tschaikowsky, and conclude
with tne moderns, English composers will be prominent
in the concerts, including such moderns as Elgar, Hoist
and Vaughan Williams, while an early English Tudor
composer will also be heard.
In this way the concerts will be representative of
the best in music for the last three centuries, in whioh
the art of composing reached its height, and every
listener following the ten programmes already projected
will acquire a knowledge of music which it would take
the ordinary concert goer years to get, apart from the
enjoyment of listening.
The Montreal Symphony orchestra Iibb earned high
praise from critics, and its range of subject matter as
well as its perfection in technique is remarkably welt
developed. The concerts will be broadcast from Tudor
Hall, in Montreal, and are made possible by the
Canadian Pacific Railway.

Can you Imagine a bewildered
Chinaman trying to total a
laundry list of 33,117,314 plecss ?
But there is one like that. It is
the total of washing done
by and for the Canadian
Pacific Railway Company In 1930, In Canada,
including hotels and bungalow - camps; sleeping
and dining car service,
(which also operates station restaurants), and
the British Columbia
Coast boat service. If
one stopped to sit down
and figure out the gallons of water and bars
of soap required for these
operations, the results
might be even more astounding.
Tho hotel, department
owns 789,821 pieces of
linen; tho dining and
sleeping car, service
some 1,500,000 and the
British Columbia steamships another, 247,000,
making a grand total of,
2,536,821 pieces. These
include all "flat-pieces",
such as table - cloths,
sheets, napkins, towels,
pillow-cases, etc; the
white coats worn by the
company's   servants   ln
the various departments, and, in
the hotels, a certain amount of
laundry, done for guests. In the
hotels, too, blankets, bed-spreads,
rugs, and so forth must
be considered. Every
piece of laundry handled
becomes a laundry-piece
each time It appears in
the wash. Thus a single
table-napkin may be a
laundry-piece over and
over again, according to
the supply of linen needed and available.

battery of washing machines In the laundry of
the Royal York Hotel,
Toronto, the largest hotel in the British Empire.
Similar equipment ln the
great chain of Canadian
Pacific Railway hotels
throughout Canada handles the great laundry
list in various centres,
with the assistance, in
certain districts, of laundries outside the company's service. But the
Standard maintained Is
the same everywhere,
immaculate cleanliness
being the motto from
coast to coast, both
ashore and afloat
