Popular Anyox Couple
Are Married At
Alice Arm
A quiet wedding was solemnized
at St. Michael's Church, Alice Arm
on Saturday, July 30th. at 12 noon,
when Miss Doris Harrison Greenwood, eldest daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. J. Greenwood of Victoria was
united in marriage to Mr. J. McConnachie of Anyox. The ceremony was performed by Rev. W. B.
Jennings, of the Anglican Church
Mission launch, Northern Cross.
The groom was supported by Mr.
Don. McLeod of Anyox, and the
matron of honor was Mrs, James L.

attired in a blue'tailored costume
with hat to match.
Following the ceremony a sumptuous wedding breakfast was partaken of at the Alice Arm Hotel,
which was attended by several
friends of the bride and groom.
The table was laid for eight
guests, and was tastefully decorated

of the Concentrating Mill start has
been a resident of Anyox for about
nine years.
A Large Number Attended
Dance Saturday Night
The dance held at the Alice Arm
Hotel on Saturday evening, had
many outstanding features, the principal of which was the large attendance, the general jollity, and the
excellent orchestra. Far into the
back ground was pushed such vexing questions as copper and silver
prices, close-downs, rainstorms etc.
Everyone seemed anxious to spend
an evening's enjoyment, and their
wish was gratified.
In addition to a number of Alice
Arm people, about fifty Anyox visitors were present. Music was supplied by Harry Ward's orchestra,
and the floor throughout the evening was crowded with dancers.
Rain Changed Plans Of
Sunday School Picnic
The annual picnic of the Alice
Arm Anglican Church Sunday
School, which was planned for
Campers' Point on Saturday last,
was abandoned as far as holding it
outdoors was concerned, owing to
the heavy downpour of rain.
As an alternative, it was held in
the Club House, and during the
afternoon Rev. W. B. Jennings
gave a first-class exhibition of lantern slides, which was greatly
appreciated by the children. Following the pictures, the children
indulged in an ice cream feast,
after which they were taken for a
trip down the inlet by the Rev. Jennings on the "Northern Cross."
On their return, refreshments
awaited them, followed by more ice
cream and candy, and in spite of
the rain the children thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
A large number of adults and
children attended the picnic and
great praise is due Rev. Jennings
and the ladies who assisted in providing a real enjoyable afternoon
for the children.

Celts and Mine Draw
In Football League
The heavy, threatening weather
did not deter the Celts and Mine
when they met in a League fixture
on July 28th. and played to a 3 all
draw. Each side played good football all the way, and the game was
full of incident.
Jim Dixon, for the Mine, showed
a real sporting spirit when, on a
penalty which was considered doubtful, he purposely kicked the ball
wide. The Celts' goalie had tough
luck when the ball bounced high,
and aided by a treacherous breeze,
eluded his efforts to grasp it and
rolled into the net. The Celts started one man short, and early in the
game Woof twisted his ankle and
and had to retire, leaving only nine
men to play. The Mine lost a
player who was penalized and sent
For the Mine, Curry shot a beauty which dropped between the goalie's hands and the top bar—a difficult one to stop. Morrison also got
one with a fast shot from close in.
For the Celts, Arthur Horner scor-
ed twice, and Jack Buntain got the
equalizer just before the whistle.
The game was featured by splendid
kicking and nice passing. Bob McMillan was the efficient referee.

Mining Activities
Of District
Dr. J. T. Maudy, resident mining
engineer for the northwestern
mining division in his report iu the
Summary and Review of mining
for the first six months of 1932
states that:
"Persistence, fortitude, optimistic
outlook and constructive activity
to meet the exigencies of prevailing
world conditions has been a markedly encouraging feature of all
branches of the mining industry
in this District during the period
under review. This activity is a
potent factor in the general welfare
of the District and far reaching
in its effect on promoting adjustment aud restoring prosperity.
"The principal producersi the
Granby Company at Anyox and
the Premier Company in the Portland Canal area, have continued in
active operation on the same basis
pertaining at the end of 1931.
The advent of the 4-cent United
States copper tariff will temporarily affect shipments from Anyox
until other arrangements, which
are being formulated, can be com
pleted. At both these operations
important consideration is given to
the retention of a maximum mini
ber of men in employment.
"An exceptionally late and heavy
winter snowfall in the interior
regions has retarded the commencement of seasonal exploration and
development operations and the
initiation of prospecting activities
in these sections. These phases of
the industry have been focussed
almost entirely on lode and placer

Canadian Silver Production
The Dominion Bureau of Statis
tics reports that the production of
silver in Canada during May declined 13.8 per cent to 1,418,384 ounces
as compared with the April output
of 1,645,094 ounces. ' In May,
1931, the Canadian production was
1,785,940 ounces.
The reason politics makes strange
bedfellows, is because they all like
the same bunk.
Fast and open play featured the
game between Mine and Rangers
on Tuesday the 26th. when the
former balanced their account by
winning 2—1. The evening was
moist and cloudy and the ball
greasy, as usual. When will Jupe
Pluve be kind and give us a light,
dry evening?.
Morrison had an excellent line-up
in spite of recent depletions. Dixon
and Curry have donned the black
and gold, and a new boy named
Henry Larson is snappy and sure at
right wing. Rangers were minus
Dodsworth and Buchanan, and
there was an obvious weakness in
their ranks which did not help
matters. However, Jimmy Donaldson held his men together and played a wonderful game himself. He
had tough luck with a lovely shot
from away out which struck the top
bar. Williams was always cool and
resourceful, and never tired. He
was unlucky, however, to kick a
penalty right at the goalie.
Owen, at outside left for the Mine,
played a fast and tricky game.
Jimmy Boyd had a birthday, as he
scored both tallies for the Mine and
came through the game without a
mishap. The Rangers' goal came
from a scramble in the goal mouth,
In the second half the Mine pressed
hard and Joe Taylor made some
close saves. J. Evans was a most
efficient referee.
More  Encouragement  And
Support For Football
Is Needed
Where are all our football fans?
Is football no longer appreciated in
Anyox? Has interest died out or
is it just apathy? There are three
teams playing in a series of league
games in Anyox. Each team has
eleven men, with reserves, and a
manager. There is a representative
Football Association. Every man
is keen and ready to do his best
when called upon. The game calls
for equipment, preparation, refer-
ees, linesmen. The schedule is adhered to faithfully, wet or dry.
Why not turn out and see the
games, and at the same time encourage tbe players and the sport? .
If you have the idea that it isn't
good football, you're dead wrong.
Anyox beat Prince Rupert last year
in four straight games, and practically all these men are playing this
season. Every game is well worth
watching. So turn out to the
games! Show the boys that their
efforts are appreciated. We have
everything but the spectators—give
the sport the encouragement it deserves.
Sign in a Western restaurant:
"If the steak is too tough for you,
get out. This is no place for weaklings."
Exports of Canadian Copper
Increase In June   -
The export of copper from Canada
made a sharp advance in May, the
total being 243,400 cwt. at $1,339,-
000 as compared with 110,200 cwt.
at $945,000 in,May, 1931. The
chief purchaser was the United
States, although it was a decrease
from $838,000 to $773,000. The
British purchase increased from
§92,000 to $326,000 and other
large importers were Norway, Bel-
guim, France and Germany, reports
the Dominion Bureau of Statistics.
The export of lead also increased,
the amount being 173,239 cwt.,
compared with 169,884 cwt. in May

Canoe Trips in Canada
Lakes and Rivers Provide Numerous Attractions
Opportunities for an Enjoyable Vacation Almost Unlimited
EE requirements for a successful and satisfactory trip
by canoe; suitable water,
picturesque country and an
excellent summer climate,
can be found almost any-
 where in Canada. The innumerable lakes and rivers make the
choice of trips almost unlimited.
One can travel for hundreds of miles
on any of the great rivers, journeying from lake to lake and portaging
where rapids impede or heights intervene.    Having  decided upon the
kind of trip to be made, whether
one requiring much effort and .experience, or one quite free from
rapids and portages, the canoeist has
only to select his route.
Easy of Access
Although railways and the automobile have provided a means of
rapid transport, there are countless
plaoes in the quiet of the forest,
out of reach of either. It is such
places; approachable only by canoe,
that invite the adventurer to partake of the wonders of nature. The
railways and the development of
good roads have however made the
majority of canoe routes in Canada
easily accessible, and one need not
travel far from the majority of
Canadian cities before reaching the
embarking point of an enjoyable
Forest Beauty
In certain parts one may follow
the streams for' a long summer
outing and never see a village or
dwelling, yet civilization lies so
close that return is easily possible.
Waterfalls, rapids large and small,
lakes of singular beauty hidden
deep in the forest, and islands
covered with pine and spruce trees
are among the interesting features
encountered en route. In some
places one may travel hundreds of
miles without meeting obstacles of
any kind.
There is a remarkable contrast between the conventionality of modem
life and the full naturalness of life
in the great forest, where one may
relax, amid the beauty of natural
surroundings. A strange appeal of
imagination comes to one while following the routes of tbe historic
explorers and contentment prevails
amid the constant change of beautiful scenery.
Fish and Gaw in Abandonee
Canadian lakes and rivers are
renowned for the variety and
abundance of their fish. Brook and
lake trout are numerous, the latter
often weighing from fifteen to thirty
pounds while other species of fish
are plentiful Eastern Canada is
well provided with waterways, well
suited to travel by canoe. Canal
systems, rivers large and small,
rapids, falls, lakes, stillwatew and
all the requirements for an enjoyable
canoe trip, await the devotee of the
paddle. Whether it be a cruise
through a well settled region, or an
adventurous journey through the
wilderness, the canoeist will find an
almost unlimited number of lakes
and streams.
The waterways of western Canada,
in days gone by, assisted materially
in unveiling the mystery of the
great country between lake Superior
and the Pacific Ocean. Radiating
from lake Winnipeg, are routes of
romantic interest. Nestling among
the mountains of the coast are many
beautiful lakes, also streams that
wind through the hills, where sport
for the angler and hunter may be

Wild Animals Friendly on Banff-Windermere Highway
Tho Friendly Road," by David
Grayson, which is well-known to
many lovers of nature, depicts Incidents and friendliness of people
along country roads and in Una rural
districts. There Is, howsw, a road
to the Canadian. Rockies tha friendliness of which Is not dus to mortals
aa la Grayson's book, but to the
friendliness of animals, Animals
termed wild, but ia this Instance a
word that cannot be applied to those
OB the Banfi-Windermers Highway.
a There is .possibly no asms beautiful road than this w*W» rone from
Banff to Lake Windermere, to the
Columbia River Valley. The distance
of' IM miles Is spectacular and the
scenes are constantly changing. The
views from the high passes looking
down into valleys, thousands of feet
below, tiny lakes surrounded by al
pine meadows, rivers crossed and re-
crossed, and glimpses of cascades
tumbling down elopes from dizzy
heights are intriguing and beautiful
To this natural beauty is added
that of seeing the animals ln their
natural haunts. Rocky Mountain
sheep are seen on the road along
Vermilion Lakes not far from Banff.
They are sotame that often motors
have to slow down- as they will persist, almost to the point of danger,
in standing ln the pdddle Of the
highway. '  "
Bozo, a black bewr, is <t friend to
many motorists on the Banff-Windermere road. H« comes out on ths
highway as if he;had sole right to
it. He does not resent these Invaders ln tbe least and rsally wishes to
•how his friendliness. Sometimes he
has lunches handed to him and ths
remarks of "nioe old chap, fine old
fellow," please him tremendously,
and he will try to come even nearer.
Bozo no doubt had many dreams
during the winter of summer tourists, and possibly has figured out la
true bear fashion just how to get
the most out of the tourist season.
Deer are ssen, also, on this famous
highway, though not as often as
other animals. They are regular visitors to Banff, and are frequently
seen on ths ■tracts of the village.
There are tamdreds of miles of
smooth mow roads through ths
Canadian Rockies, and devotees of
the open road are visiting this region ia increasing numbers annually. n
