Elks    Second   Annual
Ball  Greatly
Enjoyed
The members of the Anyox
Lodge No. 47, B. P. 0. Elks excelled themselves as hosts on Monday
evening when they entertained a
number of friends of the members
at tlieir second annual ball.
Everything was conducted on an
elaborate scale, and nothing was
left undone in order to provide an
evening of unalloyed enjoyment.
Dancing commenced at 9 p.m.
and until well after 2 on the following morning the door was tilled with
dancers, who simply could not resist the delightful music provided.
A feature of the evening was the
elaborate decorating arrangements.
The hall was covered with a
lattice work design in which the
colors of the Order—purple and
white—were used with striking
effect. The whole comprised one
of the most pleasing deLorating
schemes ever viewed in Anyox, and
was the cause of many favorable
comments. The designer, G?o.
Pearson, of the Stores department,
was the recipient of many congratulations.
The supper was a banquet, turkey, cold tongue and other meats,
followed by all the trimmings
tempted the most delicate appetites.
Dances followed each other in
ijiiick succession throughout the
evening and encores were frequently requested and freely s^'en.
The committee in oharge deserve
great praise for the excellent in,inner in which all arrangements were
carried out. They again proved
that as hosts and entertainer.'-, the
looal "Brother Bills" are second to
none.
Students Requested to Notify
Principal
Students who wish to write any
of the examinations in Gracie IX io
XII of the high school course in
June should notify the Principal,
Granby Bay High School, as soon
as possible. Those writing supple-
mentals in Grade Eleven and Grade
Twelve are particularly requested
to lose no time in giving notice.
P. E. Peterson Returns To
Coast
P. E. Peterson, consulting engineer for the Utility Mines No. 1 Ltd.
who are developing the Tiger, has
arrived in Vancouver after spending
I the past four months in New York
and Toronto on company business.
Work Started on Lower
Tunnel at Tiger
Owing to the large amount of
water flowing into the No. 3 tunnel
at the Tiger, work has been suspended until the water drains off.
The crew has been transferred to
No. 4 tunnel which was commenced
last fall, and this tunnel will be
pushed ahead. Including the timbered approach it is now in a distance of 28 feet.
The temporary cessation of operations in the No. 3 tunnel was a
disappointment. The ore ledge,
which was the objective of the tunnel had just been encountered and
its development is expected to prove
the ore body which has been cut in
the upper tunnels, extends to a
depth of 400 feet.
The No. 4 tunnel, which is now
being driven will encounter the ore
at a depth of 800 feet.
Organization   Meeting   For
League   of Nations
The Committee in charge of promoting interest in the League of
Nations will shortly make an announcement of the date of the public
metting at which Rev. J. Dewar
will present the feature address.
It is hoped to form a local branch,
of the society. Organizations and
individuals who will assist in the
movement are requested to inform
Mrs. J. W. Lang.
Council of Community
League Transacts
Business
The Community League Council
spent Monday evening in special
session catching up with the many
details of administration which were
inherited from the interregnum.
As a result of the deliberations
the habituees of tbe billiard parlour
will find many improvements taking
place in the near future.
Recreation Hall itself will present
a fresh and attractive appearance
and will probably attract more cus-
tomersincluding the councillors who
unanimously endorsed a proposal to
grant themselves free admission to
the theatre. Formerly this privilege seems to have been extended to
Council Chairman and to the Chairman of the House Committee. The
present Couneil seemed unwilling
that their two colleagues should
suffer criticism and chose to share
the burden with them.
There was considerable discussion
of the baseball and football grounds
and it was decided to canvass expert
opinion on the best methods of putting the field into good condition.
The silverware trophies held by the
League are to be collected and dis-
Iplayed in a convenient place.
CARD OF THANKS
Mr. and Mrs. John  A.   Swanson
I wish to convey their sincere thanks
to their many friends for the kind
expressions of sympathy and beautiful floral tributes received during
Ihe recent sad bereavement of a
oving daughter.

The Annual Meeting of the
Pioneer Mess members was held
last Friday. A statement showing
a successful year was read and a

Alice Arm Dance Very
Enjoyable
Another of those pleasant little
dances that has been held during
the winter months on Saturday
evenings and which breaks the
monotony of mining camp life during the quiet months, was held at
the Alice Arm Hotel on Saturday
evening.
A goodly number attended and a
very pleasant evening was spent by
everyone.
The catering for the supper was
in the hands of the hotel management, and an abundance of appetising edibles was in evidence. The
music was good, the- supper
equalled it, and the company present
was of the best. To use a colloquial expression: "A good time was
had by all."
Officers  Elected    For
Tennis Club
About twenty members of the
Anyox Tennis Club attended the
annual meeting last Friday and
elected the following officers for

Public Works Department
Visits Alice Arm
A. McGuire, engineer for the
Public Works Department, with
headquarters at Prince Rupert,
arrived at Alice Arm on Monday.
He spent several-days here investigating the most pressing needs of
the district, and left again on Wednesday. He was accompanied by
J. A. Anderson.
Railway Officials Visit Anyox
Several officials of the C. N.
Railways paid a visit to Anyox
during the week-end. Included in
the party, were: H. McEvan. divisional freight agent; R. P. MoNaughton. district passenger agent;
and W. G. Manders, who was
accompanied by his wife.
mine. The cable is now anchored
within 300 feet of the mine. The
foundations of the last tawer are
in, and three days time would complete the construction of this last
tower. The timber for the loading
ore bins has all been cut and framed, and it is delivered at the intermediate station. We were unable
to complete the construction of the
tram due to unusually heavy and
early snow-storms."
"The development work at the
mine that was completed during
this season is a tunnel 121 feet long,
driven along the vein at a point approximately 700 feet to the south,
of the good ore showings in the
shaft. The vein, where drifted on,
consisted principally of quartz with
a little lead and zinc value, and is
from 4 to 6 feet wide. No values
were expected in this tunnel until it
had reached a point 350 feet from
the portal."
May Increase   Capital
Of Silver Crest
Company
Shareholders of Silver Crest
Mines Limited, at the annual meeting on April 27, at the Board of
Trade rooms, Vancouver, were in-
ited to consider a resolution for
doubling capitalization of the company. The resolution reads as follows:
"That the capital of the company
be increased to one million dollars
($1,000,000.00) by the creation of
five hundred thousand dollars
($500,000.00) worth of ordinary
shares to be divided into two million
shares of par value of twenty-five
cents (25c.) each, all of which you
are hereby required to take notice."
The annual report of the directors,
signed by J. E. Fitzgerald, secretary, gives the details regarding
construction of an aerial tramway
at the Saddle property at the head
of Hastings Arm. The necessity
for further financing is also outlined,
the additional funds being required
to complete the tramway and extend the tunnel a further 230 feet to
intersect the ore shoot exposed in
the shaft workings, thus bringing
the property to the productive stage.
Further financing is necessary to
resume development of the Salmon
River property, the report states.
Negotiations are also under way by
the company with a view to purchasing the remaining 30 per cent,
interest in the Saddle property. It
is pointed out that there remain in
the treasury only 45,667 of the 2,-
000,000 shares authorized.
Mr. P. E. Peterson, consulting
engineer for the company compiled
a lengthy report, in which he covered all operations for the past
year. Included iu which is the
progress of the aerial tram construction and development work carried
out at the mine; also the cost of
the different projects.
Following are extracts taken
from his report:
"The operations for the season
just closed consisted of constuet-
ion of an aerial tram S300 feet long
and construction of ore bins and
unloading terminals and the upper
loading terminal and ore bins. The
tram, when completed, will have
seven towers, most of which are
spaced about 500 and 600 feet
apart, but we have one span which
is 2300 feet long. Construction of
this tram is a very difficult piece
of construction work. The slope
of the hill along the right-of-way
varies from 25 degrees at the top,
about 40 degrees along midway,
and the first jump over from the
beach is 52 degrees. From these
figures it can be realized that this
is a very steep tram."
"The tram as it now stands is
all completed with the exception of
of the last tower and the unloading terminal and ore bins at the

No tears need be shed over the
fall in copper prices of close to five
cents in five days. At least, tears
are no more in order than were
smiles when the price advanced at
almost as fast a rate. As was
pointed out in these columns three
weeks ago, a period of price instability was almost certain to result from the sudden inflation of
quotations. Furthermore, such
gyrations are not for the good of
the industry; they are against the
interest of all the different factors,
from the miner to the ultimate consumer. Only the speculator who
has correctly guessed the course of
events has benefited, and the industry need have no particular regard for his interests.
It is significant that on Wednesday, April 10, when the decline
hit bottom for a time at least, the
share prices of eleven of the twelve
leading coppers registered substantial gains. This compares with the
uniform decline in share quotations
as .copper prices advanced from
twenty-one up to twenty-four cents.
Investors had apparently not taken
the advance seriously, so were not
disturbed by the decline.
There is a good fundamental
reason why the present price of
copper should not be far below
twenty cents, and a further precipitous decline to the fourteen-cent
level of a year ago need not be
feared. Nineteen cents is a much
better price for copper than twenty-
four, for there is much more reason
to think that it can be maintained
for a time. Even if it goes down
two or three cents further, the producers are going to make highly
satisfactory profits, which will
amply justify present levels for most
of the copper securities.

£. A. Haggen, Mining
Writer, Passes Away
The death occurred on April
23rd. at Vancouver, of Edward
Alexander Haggen, well-known
mining engineer and writer on
mining topics, in his 70th. year.
For years .Mr. Haggen occupied
an unique place iu mining circles
British Columbia. He was perhaps best known to the public as a
writer on mining activities, and it
has been said of him by mining en
gineers that there was no other person in Western Canada who could
write so interestingly of British
Columbia mines.
As editor of the Mining and Industrial Record, Mr. Haggen was
a courageous journalist and ever
dared to declare his convictions in
the most fearless language. While
many mining men did not always
agree with his conclusions, all gave
him oredit for the fearlessness with
which he wrote, not infrequently
in opposition to powerful interests.
Mr. Haggen was a native of
New Zealand and was educated at
Dunedin High School, Dunedin
Academy and Otago University.
He came to British Columbia in
1897.
America has decided to report
alien bootleggers. Naturally they
prefer to support home industries.
The savage desert tribes of Africa
pay no taxes, we read. It is difficult, therefore, to know what makes
them so savage.
out British Columbia have some
feelings of disapointment that the
oils have run away with the market here to the extent they have.
They contend that mining is British
Columbia's big asset and that the
recent slump in the stocks and inactivity in the mining issues on the
market is to be regretted.
This condition will be remedied
in time. If the real values are in
the mining properties, they will undoubtedly come back. There were
perhaps about enough mining companies in operation pending a far
greater production of ore. It be
came too heavy a drain on the
public to finance so many new
companies, many of which were
purely in the development stage,
and could not hope to approach a
dividend stage for several years.

Stewart Pressing  For
Incorporation
Stewart News
At the Tuesday meeting of the
Board of Trade it was disclosed
that Incorporation of Stewart was
still considered as a major issue,
most of the members being dissatisfied at the defeat suffered last
year. It was decided to bring up
the matter again early iu July with
a view to its determination by a
plebicite in the fall. The discussion
was the outcome of questions concerning a (ire siren, fire equipment
and fire-fighting funds.
Innumerable questions received
by the secretary for information
concerning railway construction
plans were responsible for. the ear
lying of a resolution that a telegram lie sent, to the Hon. H. H.
Stevens asking him to wire the
Board immediately information
was available.
The by-laws committee were authorized to have a supply of booklets printed containing the by-laws
i.    ' •i Board with amendments.
At the suggestion of the finance
committee the $100 contributed by
tlie Government towards the formation of a local mining bureau
was ordered taken out of the
Board's general fund and placed
in a trust account at the bank.
Hudson Bay Co. Will Drill
For Gas
The Hudson's Bay Marland Oil
Company will spend $250,000 this
year, mainly in search of gas. It
will drill a $100,000 well as Bass-
ano, the site of the Canadian Pacific
Railway's great irrigation dam on
the Bow River. If sufficient gas
is found it is proposed to pipe a
supply to Regina. Another $100,-
000 well will be sunk at Champion.
Alberta, and $50,000 will be spent
in drilling in the Viking field from
which Edmonton secures its gas
supply.
No Mail Contract Let From
Seattle to Juneau
So far the efforts to secure a
mail contract for the proposed air
service between Seattle and Juneau
has failed. Apparently the Alaska
people have not made themselves
heard plainly enough.
The recent test flights to Juneau
have been very successful and renewed efforts will be made to secure
federal aid.

In view of the present prosperity
of Canada and of the Canadian
Pacific, it is amusing to recall the
item published in London Truth
over forty-five years ago. "The
Canadian Pacific Railway," it runs,
"has begun to launch Its bonds.
This railway, if it be ever finished,
will run through a country frost-
bound for seven or eight months
of the year, and will connect with
the eastern part of the Dominion
a province which embraces about
as forbidding country as any on the
face of the earth, t British Columbia is a barren, cold mountain
country that Is not wortb keeping.
It would never have been inhabited at all unless by trappers of the
Hudson Bay Company had 'gold
fever' not taken a party of adventurers there. Fifty railroads would
not galvanize It into prosperity.
The much-tooted Manitoba settlement will not bold out many years.
The people who have gone there
cannot stand the coldness of the
winters. Men and cattle are frozen
to death in numbers that* wourd
astonish the intending settler if he
knew, and those who arc not killed
outright are often maimed for life
by frostbites."
"Have a drink?"
"No, thanks, just had one.''
"Have another."
"Jush had another."
"Well,  start in   wherever  you
