Mine  A. C. L. Dance
Was One Great Big
Mr. and Mrs. F. McNicholas
Given Warm Welcome
On the evening of Friday, July
13th. the mine added another to its
ever growing list of successful and
popular dances.
That the mine reputation for
fun and pep is nob a fallacy was
amply proven.
With the addition of two saxophones to the popular Revellers',
together with paper hats and noise
makers, not to mention the zestful
and merry spirit prevailing, the
evening will make Anyox history.
Bob Brown crooning the "Kiss"
Waltz; saxophones sobbing an ob-
ligato; lights dim, a synthetic moon
beaming on the colorful spectacle
of gliding paper hats all colors of
the rainbow, is enough to send any
reporter scurrying for adjectives.
The "Rhinelander with its hopping, whirling and stamping of
feet was another popular dance.
The high spot of the evening
however, came with the entrance
of Mr. and Mrs. F. McNioholas.
The deafening ovation which greeted the newly weds was testimony
of the esteem and affection iu which
this happy couple is held.
When the applause finally subsided, Mr. McNicholas who was
obviously moved by the reception,
responded that they were glad to
be back amongst their Anyox
To Mr. Bob Brown, Mr. Tim
Waterland and Mr. Harry Bamforth, must be extended great credit
for their work iu making the dance
The Revellers, with Tommy
Stretton and Jack Buntain doubling on sax's, exceeded themselves,
if that were possible.
2 o'clook brought the Home
Waltz" with many regretful sighs
and promises of the many Beaoh
people who attended, to atteud the
next Mine Dance at all costs.

The Anyox Golf Club Hold
Challenge Tournament
The qualifying round for the
Anyox Golf Club Challenge Tournament was played on Sunday July
8th. The lovely weather brought a
large number of the male members
outdoors and some very low cards
were turned in. Sixteen players
qualified for the Tournament. It is
interesting to note, that the highest score able to qualify this year
was that of 93, while a low score of
82 was turned in by A. W. Gigot.
The winner of this tournament
wins the Lovsted Cup and he also
plays Sid Peters for the 36 Hole
Open Championship Cup. Four
flights have been formed to compete for other prizes. Two ot said
nights are made up of those members who qualified for the Challenge
Tournament; and the other two
flights are made up of those players
who did not qualify.
Bonanza Leads The Softball
Some very good softball games
have been played recently. All the
teams have shown" improvement
since the beginning of the season.
The Bonanza Nine is leading in the
League, but from the vast improvement that has been made lately in
this great game by the other teams
in the running, it looks like the boys
from Bonanza will have to go some
to hold their honored position.

Annual Meeting Alice
Arm School District
Held July 14th.
Teacher's Salary Remains At
$1000.00 Per Year
The annual meeting of the ratepayers of the Alice Arm School
District was held at the School
House on Saturday, July 14th. at
7.30 p.m. Mr. O. Evindsen was
elected chairman by acclamation.
The first business before the
meeting was the election of a trustee for a 3-year term to fill the vacancy caused by the retirement of
J. C. Studdy. On nominations
being called for Mr. Studdy was reelected by acclamation, others present who were nominated declining.
Nominations were then called for
the position of auditor for the coming year, and W. B. Bower was
re-elected by acclamation, no other
nominations being made.
The annual report for the past
year was presented to the meeting
written on the blackboards, some of
which was given verbally by the
secretary, W. M. Stephen. This
report showed that at the commencement of the year there was a
balance in hand of $81,88. Expen
ditures during the year amounted to
$587.97, leaving a balance .in hand
at the end of the year of $193.91.
Following the usual discussion the
report was adopted by the meeting.
The estimated expenditures for
the coming year were then read by
the secretary, aud caused considerable discussion before being adopt
ed with a slight change. In this
year's estimates the teacher's sala>
ry had been set at $850.00 for the
coming year instead of $1000.00 as
was paid last year. It was explained that the government would pay
$669.00 as part payment of the
$850.00 salary, and that $181.00
would be paid from the local assess
ment. After considerable discuss
ion as to the merits and demerits of
reducing the teacher's salary a mo.
tion was made that the teacher's
salary be increased $150.00, which
would provide a salary of $1000.00
a year, the teacher to do the janitor
work in connection with the school
and in lieu of these services to be
provided with free rooms, light and
fuel above the class room. On a
vote being taken the motion was
The estimated expenditure for the
coming year was then increased
from $350.00 to $500.00. This
latter sum will be raised by local
assessment, $331.00 of which will
be paid as a part of the teacher's
Short Stories  o! The
Softball Diamond
Because of a postponed game on
Wednesday, a doubleheader was
played on Thursday July 12th.
Both games were packed with
action and heavy hitting was a big
feature. The first was played between the Foundry, Mine and the
Roustabouts. The Roustabouts
romped through the first four innings nicely, but got caught in the
fifth stanza by the Foundry who
slammed ont four runs to put themselves in solid. The Husky Scrap
Iron men finished on the long end
of a 13-9 score.
Johnson and Yelland occupied
mound and mitt in their usual
capable manner for the winners,
while Bill Ion and Vincennzi were
doing the honors for the Roustabouts.
The second swat-and-steal was
staged by X-Rupert and Waterfront.
While the Stevedores put up a
good brand of ball, the X-Rupert
boys seem invincible.
The nine from the fish city started a merry-go-round and got away
with almost everything but murder. In the third they garnered
nine runs which broke the heart of
the Waterfronters, who never
showed signs of overtaking the
Rupert hoys from then on.
Slim Moore in one trip to the
plate unwound his long frame and
his grin to drive out a three-bagger
for three runs. The game ended
at 12-4 which is becoming a typical X-Rupert score.
Falooner and Gibson did good
work as Waterfront battery, while
Allan and Casey were X-Rupert

East. Corporation Buys
Engineer Mine
Engineer gold mine, perhaps the
most widely discussed of British
Columbia's mines a few years ago,
was bought at sheriff's sale on the
3rd. instant at Prince Rupert by the
Mining Corporation of Canada, one
of the big operators in the East.
The judgement creditor was John
G. Harris, of Toronto, who had a
claim against the property of $207,-
Production of the Engineer has
not been large, about $250,000, but
considerable development has been
done. It was the object of litigation when the owner, Alexander
met his death with 300 others when
the Princess Sophia sank in the
north some years ago. Engineer
Gold was a great feature when
Charles V. Bob of New York, operated it, with Andrew Sostad of
Vancouver in charge, and produced
high grade gold that sent the price
from $5 par to $108 a share.
Successful development of Engineer will greatly help Atlin district,
where other properties are located.
Adjoining it is the Gleaner property
owned in Vancouver, and a few
miles away is Norgold which is
coming ahead.
U. S. A. Copper Stocks
Being Reduced
Recovery in the copper trade in
the United States has been rather
slow, because of the very depressed
situation into which the industry
fell and because copper is primarily
employed in more or less permanent
goods for which demand depends
on revival in the heavy, rather than
in the light industries, says Moody's
Survey. Unofficial copper statistics indicate that so far in 1934 the
industry has been holding production to a moderate level, with the
result that stocks on hand have
been consistently reduced. The
NRA code should prove helpful in
further reducing inventory without
harming the price, which has been
quite stable this year in the vicinity
of 8 cents a pound. Another favorable factor is the apparent desire
of the Federal Administration to
revive private, long-term financing,
which might be expected to stimulate greater demand for capital

Dunwell To Ship Concentrates To Anyox
Stewart News.
Negotiations which have been
under way for some time between
the Dunwell Mines Co. and the
Granby Co. management at Anyox,
for the shipment of siliceous ores
by the former to the latter, seem to
have culminated in the accumulation
at the dock of some 500 tons as a
trial shipment.
Actual details seem to have been
concluded by the arrival from Anyox on Sunday last of manager W.
R. Lindsay, and his spending the
day at Dunwell, at the conclusion
of a week's examination and sampling by Mr. Buckle one of the
Granby engineers, assisted by Mr.
Barker, sampler at Anyox.

Britannia Co. Produces Zinc
When Copper Prices Low
In a statistical report on lead and|
zinc production in Canada in 1933 is
the following: "Officials of Britannia
mine (near Vancouver,) when faced
with the difficulty of marketing their
copper at a profit, turned their attention to another body of ore in
the mine which was known to be
low in copper but relatively high in
zinc content, with considerably better values in gold than the average,
in the hope that a process of recov.
ery of these metals could be evolved. The problem was successfully
solved and Britannia mine became
for the first time a producer of zinc
