Tuxis Boys Hold High
Witches and choice spirits of
darkness held high carnival at the
Union Church Manse, on Wednesday night, when the Tuxis Boys
entertained their fair friends at a
spooky party.
The house was tastefully deoor^
ated with witohes, black cats, owls,
etc, giving a creepy effect. The
girls were greeted upon; entering
by two ghosts, who shocked
(electrically) each visitor when
shaking hands.
Hallowe'en games were indulged
in, and if noise makes enjoyment,
then those spirits enjoyed themselves to the limit.

Interesting Debate
Held at Alice Arm
The weekly debating class of the
Alice Arm Debating Society, was
held on Tuesday evening, at the
Anglican Church, when the No. 3;
team gave an excellent exhibition
of oratory, that surprised the
audience and also themselves.
As there was no business of any
kind brought before the meeting,
the debate was proceeded with.
The subject was: "Resolved that
lumbering is of more benefit to the
province than fishing." The affirmative speakers were: H. Fowler,
S. Dumas, O. Bniggy, G. Anderson. Negative: C. P. Riel, T. W.
Falconer, F. Miller, G.,Strombeek.
H. Fowler, leader of the affirmative, fired the first shot, and he
gave a concise and instructive
history of the lumber industry, and
predicted that lumbering would
still be carried on long after all the
fish were caught.
C. P., Riel, leader of the negative,
who was brimful of information,
regarding the fishing industry,
was the next speaker. He stated
that it took a spruoe tree over 600
yea,p tp;grow, but that fish matured in from one to seven years, aud
that fishing would be Carried on
long after the lumber industry had
ceased to exist.       .
The next speaker for the lumbermen, was S. Dumas, and he let
go a broadside of heavy artillery
right at the start. His speech was
short, witty, and full of facts, and
he carried the house with him.
When the applause for the last
speaker had died down, T. W.
Falconer took the floor in defence
of the fisherman. He quoted
figures to show that the salmon
industry was being fostered by the
government by hatcheries, etc., so
that fishing would be carried on
for ever. ,!
He was followed fey Or. Bruggy,
who, in a concise speech, quoted
government statistics to show that
the lumber industry was superior
to fishing and would always be so.
F. Miller, who had been hooked
by the fisherman for the evening,
gave a convincing speech, He
scored his opponents for several
previous remarks made by them
and gave faots from experience
that the lumber industry was fast
G. Anderson gave a neat little
address and scored some points for
his brother lumberjacks. He also
predicted an early end of the fish
ing industry in the north.

Weekly Meeting of
Anyox Community
League Council
The regular weekly meeting of
the Community League Counoil,
was held in the Recreation Hall,
on Wednesday evening, November
1st. Present: President Ferguson,
Secretary-Treasurer Lowry, Councillors Mrs. MoKay, Messrs. Noel
and Rowley.
The minutes of the preceding
meeting were read and approved
on a motion of Mr] Lowry, which
was seconded by Mr. Noel.
The seoretary reported on the
visit of the Count Szeda Concert
Company to Anyox. This company
owing to the heavy expense did
not do very well financially, although they had given a lot of
pleasure to those who were fortunate enough to hear them. The
League's share of the proceeds had
amounted to $100.65, the expense
account being less than $15.00,
whioh would leave a balance of
$85.00. On Sunday evening, at
the earnest request of several mine
residents, the •; League Council
arranged to hajfe the Company
appear at the Mine Hall, when a
collection was taken up, the total
amount going to the Szeda Concert
Mr. Rowley told of the -lower
tennis court being the only solution
ot the skating rink proposition for
the coming winter. This could be
fixed up at a cost of $150.00. The
cost of putting a rink at the flats
would be much greater than this,
while the flue dust would always
be a hindrance. Mr. Rowley then
gave notice of a motion that he
would ask the Counoil to endorse a
proposal to have the skating rink
on the lower court, at the meeting
of Wednesday, Novdmber 15th.
Under,the head of unfinished
business, the Chair read a report
prepared by the secretary, re the
election of a Councillor, to fill a
vacancy on the Council. It had
been stated at a previous meeting
that the Constitution had been
altered so that a Councillor should
be elected from a regular meeting,
all members present voting. This
was contrary to the constitution,
and it was shown in the report
that the proceeding could not be
recognized if the Constitution was
to be observed. The Chair felt
that the Councillor to fill the
vacancy caused by; Mr,'-' Warwick's
resignation should be appointed in
the regular,: way and should be
ohosen next Wednesday night.
To this the Council agreed.
The Chairman?* took up the"
question of the Dancing Class,: It
had been practically deoided that
the League would allow the, in
structors the use of the, Reading
Room' and piano one night a week,
for the purpose of giving those whp
wished to learn to dance an opportunity.    In  the   absence of Mr.
Hospital Dance
Held at Anyox
The Hallowe'en Dance under the
auspices of the Ladies Auliliary of
the Anyox, Hospital, on Monday
October 30th, was one that will be
long remembered.
Never was the Recreation Hall
more beautifully decorated. The
predominating colors of which were
black arid orange, carried out in
festoons, lamp shades and wall
hangers, with panels of black cats
on orange background, with here
and there other symbols of
Hallowe'en, such as witches, owls,
pumpkins, etc. Altogether, a most
pleasing spectacle, which did
credit to the engenuity and artistic
taste of T. P. Ryan and an energetic committee of ladies, who
must have given many hours of
work, with one object in view, that
of making the hospital dance a
thing of beauty and a joy forever.
Some 300 people were present,
which was just about the right
size of crowd to fill the hall, and
still dance with comfort.
The committees to whom is
attributed the success of the even
ing, were: Decorating, Mesdames
Eve, Conway, Cribbs, Kelley, and
Miss V. Eaton. Refreshments,
programmes, etc., Mesdames Fraser
Harringtoti, Morning, Farnell,
Jenkinson, Crerar. The floor management was in the hands of three
capable Mc's, Messrs. F. F. Brown,
W. Legg, aud C. J. Ferguson.
Accidents at Anyox
Three accidents occurred in
Anyox during the week. Neil
McBethhad the misfortune to have
a boulder fall on him while at work
at the mine, which resulted in a
broken thigh bone.
Sid Jack and R. Forsyth, while
working on the roof of the new
gymnasium building, on Thursday
morning. The morning was frosty
and the roof ladder slipped, both
men falling to the ground a
distance of thirty or forty feet.
Neither man received any broken
bones but both received severe cuts
and bruises.
Murdoch, Chairman of Entertainment; it was asked if he had so
understood the matter, In a conversation with Mr. Murdoch in
connection with this matter, the
seoretary told the meeting that it
had been arranged that Mr.
Murdooh should approach the instructors to this end. It was then
moved that the matter of the
Dancing Class be turned over to
the instructors,
Mr. Rowley brought up the
question of December 22nd dance.
He thought that no time should be
lost advertising it, and that it was
not a bit too soon to start to get

Alice Arm Citizens'
Association Meeting
The regular monthly meeting of
the Alice Arm Citizens' Association
was held in the Anglican Church,
on Saturday evening, October 28.
President C. P. Riel, was Chairman
of the meeting.
The minutes of the last regular
meeting, and < also the special
meeting of October 14, were read
aud adopted.
In regard to the Kitsault River
bridge, A. Falconer, who was
Chairman of the investigation
committee, reported that the committee had not arrived at a
decision. Considerable discussion
followed and it was finally decided
by a unanimous vote that the
government be asked to appropriate the sum of $5,000 for the
construction of a bridge. It was
moved by A. Falconer, seconded by
F. Miller, that the secretary be
instructed to write to the minister
of public works, asking for an
appropriation, and if possible to
build the bridge this winter, and
also'point out to him the urgent
necessity of building a bridge now
that logging camps are to be
established aoross the river.
The Chairman made the suggestion that something should be done
in regard to cleaning up the school
grounds, and a motion was made
by A- Falconer, seconded by H.
Fowler, that the School Board be
notified that they would receive
the support of the citizens' Association in preparing a playground.
The meeting was then brought
to a close in order to give those
present the opportunity of attending the Masquerade Ball, at the
Alice Arm Hotel.

Canadian Mining Institute
Will Hold Meeting.
Each year the Canadian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy
holds a general meeting in one of
the western provinces. This year
it is the turn of British Columbia,
and accordingly it has been arranged that the meeting will be
held in Vancouver, with headquarters at the Hotel Vancouver,
on Wednesday and Thursday,
November 15 and 16, while on
Friday, the 17, there will be an
excursion to the Ladysmith and
Cassidy Colleries on Vancouver
Island, with a meeting in the
evening at Nanaimo.
One of the essential aims of
this Institute is to promote the
welfare of the mining industry
throughout the Dominion, and to
that end it desires to interest in
its work, and to gain the cooperation and support of, all either
directly or indirectly concerned in
mining development and progress.
In a province such as British
Columbia, where mining is one of
the chief basic industries, and
potentially the most important of
our basic industries, every member
of the community, is or should be
interested in any effort for the
betterment of conditions affecting
the industry. The meetings of the
institute are therefore open to the
public, and all who care to do so
are cordially invited to attend them.
Of the topics to be discussed, the
majority are of wide general
interest, and include such topics as
the principals of mine taxation,
"blue sky" legislation, and the like.
To give a conception of the importance of operations in the
eastern provinces, moving pictures
will be shown, illustrating the gold
and silver industries of Ontario,
and the asbestos industry of
Quebec. The same means will be
employed to indicate the magnitude
and ramifications of the smelting
and refining operations at Trail.
In addition there will be a number
of papers dealing with British
Columbia economic mineral resources, representing recent investigations at Barkerville, Cariboo
district and elsewhere. A no less
interesting series of papers relating
to coal and coal mining will be
presented for discussion.

Weekly Debate
Continued from page 1.
, G. Strombeek, who had the advantage of listening to the seven
previous, speakers, then took the
ltand. He criticized several state-
Inents of his opponents, and dwelt
Iipou the vast damage wrought by
|orest fires in the province.
H. Fowler then gave a whirlwind seven minute rebuttal speech,
vhich was full of faots, figures and
C, P. Riel, who had the advan-
;age of saying the last word,
fallowed with a speech as full of
points as a porcupine, and thus
cslosed a very interesting and
instructive debate.
Voting slips were then given to
everyone in the hall, and the fishermen wore declared the winners by
» mojority of one. The vote being:
fishing 18, lumbering 17.
This was the second debate put
on by the Alice Arm Debating
Sooiety, and it was as successful
as the previous event. All the
speakers are to be commended on
the manner in which they delivered
their speech. For several of them
it was the first time they had ever
addressed a public gathering, but
everyone showed the right spirit,
aud they will undoubtedly improve
with experience. Steve Dumas

evening, and his reappearance on

ready for it. He told of arrangements lately made with the Elk's
Entertainment Committee, whereby the Christmas Dance would be
left to the Community League, if
the Elks could have the New Year
Dance. These matters had to be
arranged so that confliction in
dates would be avoided and mutual
benefit would be the outoome if all
these matters could be arranged
beforehand. Two big dances v^ere
too much in any month, and every
organization should be treated
fairly. Mr. Rowley moved and
Mr. Lowry seconded that the dance
for December 22, be advertised in
the Granby News.
The matter of a Children's
Party or Christinas Entertainment
then came up for discussion. Mr.
Lowry told of what the Christmas
Tree had cost last year, and the
Granby Company had contributed
the bulk of the amount There
had been a tag day which some
people did not consider popular.
It was suggested that the. management of the Granby Company
be approached and requested to
make a donation. The form of
entertainment to be provided was
not decided on.. Mrs. Eve suggested the inadvisability of having a
Christmas Tree. She had been
active in Christmas celebrations for
a number of years and they were
somewhat satisfactory. Mr. Simpson also talked in the same
manner. It was finally decided to
leave the. matter with the Ways
and' Means Committee for initial
