League  Council  Have
A Busy Business
A considerable amount of business was transacted at the regular
meeting of the Anyox Community
League Council held on Wednes-
September 10th. Members present
were: President Manning, Councillors Dresser, Youngs, Shields,
McDougall, Johnson and Stewart.
A letter was read by the secretary from Scoutmaster Gale, in
Connection with the Scout camp at
Terrace. The letter showed that a
very successful and instructive time
had been spent by the boys. Mr.
Gale will be recompensed for the
time lost from work while at the
camp, and will be paid by the
The use of the Gym. was granted
to the A. C. L. Tennis Club for
October 24th. and the Recreation
Hall to the P. T. A. and I. O. D.
E. for September 11th.
It was also decided to purchase
felt to the value of $100.00 for the
purpose of obtaining better sound
results at the theatre.
A discussion arose regarding the
use of the League's grounds by the
Football League for a benefit game,
of which the League had not been
advised. Such action was disproved by the Council as they were
open to criticism on a question of
this kind.
Owing to a shortage of cups and
spoons at the Gym. it was decided
to purchase a barrell of cups and
12 dozen spoons.
Mr. Dresser stated that at the
last excursion to Larcom Island on
September 7th., about 200 persons
attended. Ideal weather prevailed
and all spent an enjoyable day's
Mr. Stewart read the minutes of
a special committee meeting held in
connection with the Arts and Crafts
Display and Fair, to be held on
October 9th. and 10th.
The presence of doubtful books
on the shelves of the library was
brought up by Mr. Cavers, and he
suggested that they be placed in a
separate place. Considerable discussion ensued regarding their disposal. It was finally decided that
they be allowed to remain on the
shelves in the Library, and that
arrangements be made so that
patrons will know the different
kinds of books. It was pointed out
that only those paying dues could
procure books. School children
were   thus   barred   frem    reading
It was decided to purchase two
sets of chessmen.
Mr. Youngs submitted his report
of the Labor Day sports, showing
that they were a great success.
He also stated that the basketball
season would shortly be here, and
he hoped to hold an organization
meeting in the near future.
On Monday evening, the P. T. A.
held its annual meeting in the United Church Hall. Due to the
stormy weather, the attendance was
small. Nominations for new offices
were made; but it was felt best to
defer elections until next meeting,
when a bigger turnout is expected.
Esperanza  Mine  May
Reopen This Fall
It is possible that the Esperanza
mine, which has been closed for a
short time, will again commence
operations this fall. Negotiations
are almost completed whereby
Seattle capitalists will purchase
large blocks of stock. Sufficient
money will be available for development work on a much larger scale
than has been the case in the past.
Mr. Bowyer is acting on behalf
of Seattle interests, and a telegram
received by the Herald yesterday
stated that everything would
shortly be arranged satisfactory.
Mr. Bowyer will be in charge of
operations at the Mine, and it is
his intention to install a compressor plant this fall and commence work as soon as possible.
The first work undertaken will
be a survey and mapping out of
all underground workings, and
also a survey of all surface showings, showing the strike of the ore
Presentation of $50 Made To
Harold Eld
Harold Eld, the model pupil of
Anyox Schools for the past nine
years, was the recipient of a handsome gift from the Anyox Parent-
Teacher Association on Tuesday,
September -9th.
Mr. Eld obtained the highest
number of marks in the matriculation examinations for History
and Science thus obtaining the
two scholarships of §25.00 each
donated each year by  the P. T. A.
Mrs. Cutler, president of the
association made the presentation
at the intermission of the show at
the Beach theatre. In a short
address she revealed the interesting fact that Mr. Eld had never
bpen late or absent from school
during the nine years he iiad attended at Anyox.
Mr. Eld left last week for Vancouver where he will attend the
university of B.C. He has consistently headed his class at the local
schools and it will not surprise his
friends if he repeats the same
performance in the future.
Catholic Ladies Hold Card
Party and Dance
On Friday evening the Catholic
Ladies gave a very successful card
party and dance in the Catholic
Hall. This is the first of a series
of card parties and dances that will
be held once each month during the
winter season.
The dance was well attended,
and very good music was provided
by tbe Merrymakers Orchestra.
The dance ended at 1.00 a.m.
Cards were played from 8.00 to
10.00 p.m. the prizes being won
by: Ladies first, Mrs. Croxford,
Gentlemen's first, Master Garvey.
Ladies consolation, Miss Ivy Hardy, Gentlemen's consolation, Mr.
B. Code.
A very pleasant time was enjoyed
by all who attended the affair, and
these monthly events will be looked
forward to with much pleasure during the long winter evenings.
Basketball Games Will
Commence Next
A two night basketball tournament will be staged in the Gym on
the nights of Wednesday and
Thursday, September 24th and
25th. This tournament is being
put on for the purpose of lining up
material for this season's basketball
league. All those wishing to play
are invited to get together and
enter a team. Some good games
should result and managers will be
able to get a line on the available
material. Team entries should be
handed in to Norton Youngs before
Tuesday, September 23rd.
There is a lot of basketball talk
in the air and there seems to be a
large number of players waiting for
the whistle to start them off. Basketball looks about due for its good
year. An organization meeting
will be held in the near future, so
watch for the date and be there
either as a player or fan.
Owing to the large number of
people wishing to make use of the
Gym, it has been decided to install
a temporary attendant, and open
the hall at once, for the use of
members. Tentative nights for
basketball are Monday, Wednesday
and Friday. The Council are still
busy trying to arrange for a real
good gym instructor, basketball
referee and attendant, but so far
have nothing definite to announce.
Anyox Scout Activities
The Wolf Cubs have now recommenced their meetings. They
will be under the leadership of Mr
Reg. Keyes, assisted by Mr. Jack
At the campfire meeting on Friday evening, Scoutmaster Gale
presented to Mr. Fred Graham, on
behalf of the troop, an instructor's
badge. Iu welcoming him as a
Brother Scouter, Mr. Gale thanked
him for the many services he had
Mr. Graham in replying stated
that it was very gratifying to him
to obtain a closer relationship to
the troop. Refreshments served
by Mrs. Gale were greatly enjoyed.
The Rovers are continually
growing, and ways and means for
providing a larger den are being
discussed, as the present quarters
are far too small. It is a credit to
Anyox that it is the only coast
town north of Vancouver that has
a Rover crew.
Notice To Hunters
The attention of hunters is called
to section 14 of the Game Act of
British Columbia:
"No person shall at any time

Annual Report Anyox
A. A. Shipp left for  Vancouver
on Monday.
During the past year, Anyox
Parent-Teacher Association has
had a membership of 31, and some
very good work has been accomplished.
For the purpose of raising funds,
the Association sponsored a Harold
Lloyd film, which realized a very
satisfying sum, close to $200.
The Association is pledged to two
scholarships of $25 each. Last
year, no High School pupil made a
record which complied with the
terms set for winning these. This
year, both were won by Harold
Eld, who more than fulfilled the
terms. The Association took extreme pleasure in presenting these
to Harold, whose school record has
been consistently good.
Anyox schools produced another
honor pupil; namely Miss Amy
McDonald, student in Gracie VIII.,
who had the distinction of leading
the entire province in entrance examinations, thereby winning the
Governor-General's medal for this
district. This achievement, the
Association gladly recognized by a
presentation of books—standard
authors and reference books.
During the severe months of
winter, cocoa was furnished to such
pupils as remained for lunch. The
Mine School was equipped with an
electric plate, cups and saucers,
cupboard, etc., to provide comfort

One of the most satisfactory activities of the Association has been
that of the "study group." Certain
educational magazines—"The New-
Era," "Progressive Education,"
"Hygeia," and "Parents"—were
obtained; and the study group,
composed of Mesdames Cutler, Eve
and McMaster, has endeavored to
glean from these magazines interesting features in regard to
modern educational trends and
accomplishments, and to present
these to the meetings. These
magazines have also been passed
round amongst the members, for
home perusal.
A copy of the King's message to
the Empire was framed and presented to the school; and certain
pictures by Canadian artists, presented by the Department of Education, were framed for classrooms.

London  Interested  In
Empire Trade
Ottawa, September 13th; (Special to the Herald.) Advices from
London indicate that the Labor
Government is devoting itself to
development of the Thomas plan
for the bulk purchasing of Canadian grain, and wool, meat and
dairy products from this and other
sections of the Empire.
The British Government intends
to have the proposal worked out
for submission to the Economic
Conference which meets in London
next month.
British comment evidences a
growing recognition of the fact
that the Dominions insist upon
mutuality of preferences within
the Empire. The Macdonald Government, and particularly Chancellor Snowden, stand rather uncompromisingly against taxes on
food in Britain and the Thomas
plan is conceived as an alternative
which may give the Dominions the
advantage sought in return for
preferences on all manufactured
goods entering the Dominions.
Details, of course, will not be
forthcoming until they are presented to the conference, though
advance reports suggest that the
proposal will be largely based upon
the methods of purchase and distribution in operation in Britain
during the war.
Empire May Dominate
World's Copper
World domination within the
next ten years of the markets for
copper and other base metals by the
British Empire is foreseen by Lord
Melchett, prominent British industrialist and advocate of Empire
economic unity.
"We already control the major
part of world production of gold,
nickel and tin and our advantages
of enormous natural resources and
well organized industrial enterprise,
if properly pressed, would soon
establish our supremacy in the
other metals," he stated in an interview during his visit to Toronto.
"Canadian mines are well situated to produce cheap copper—International Nickel can produce it for
5 or 6 cents a pound—and the
South African deposits, because of
their richness and extent, are in a
favorable position to meet any competition," he continued. "Withthe
Australian and Canadian deposits
to draw from, the empire is also
independent in regard to lead and
zinc.    All that is necessary, there-

Britain Sends Much Money
Here as Pensions
Few people in Canada realize the
large amount of money which Great
Britain spends each year in pay-
ment to Imperial war pensioners in
this country, according to Sir
George Chrystal, K. C. B., who
was in Ottawa this week visiting
the Canadian headquarters of the
British Ministry of Pensions.
Sir George stated that a sr
between five and six million dollars
was paid out each year by the home
government to Imperial pensioners
and their dependents resident in the
Dominion. Canada is the only
part of the Empire which has a
headquarters for payment and this
was rendered necessary by the large
number of pensioners.
Sonic idea of the colossal burden the Motherland is bearing in
connection with the post-war care
of its veterans can be gauged by the
fact that the sum of more than
$400,500,000 has been spent in war
pensions alone since the Armistice.
Pleasures of Hope—Chairman

only add that we arc looking forward to burying him here."

Breaking New Trails in the Rockies
T? very year the Order of the Trail Riders of the
Canadian Rockies gathers together its devotees
who set out into the unknown, or the almost unknown, on mountain ponies from the starting point
at the Banff Springs Hotel or Chateau Lake Louise.
For those new to the game there is a trail ride of
a few days, covering, however, little travelled paths,
while for the expert there is a ride of three weeks
penetrating to the heart of the Rockies, and both
end in a Grand Pow-wow or campf ire meeting where
songs are sung and the feeling of general jollity
is perpetuated. These Trail rides are held in August
when the weather is at its best and lovers of the outdoors gain an experience which, even if they never
repeat it, will furnish them with memories and
stories for a life-time. Every year new trails are
broken, the one last year being over Gibbon Pass,
named after the founder of the Order. The rides
attract travellers from every part of the continent
and from Europe, and some 1,600 of them are now
enrolled in the Order.
Lay-out shows riders passing through Gibbon
Pass, taking a rest at Shadow Lake with Mount Ball
in the background, and fording an arm of the Lake
