All Anyox In Gala Dress
At Mine Club's First
Masquerade Dance
Ballroom   Was   Scene   Of
Unsurpassed Brilliancy
A brilliant social event was held
in Anyox on Tuesday, when, attended . by over three hundred
people, aud the most ambitious
function yet put on by the Mine
Club, the much heralded "Master
Masquerade" was voted by all tlie
best dance staged in town. From
the earliest advance advertising of
tlie affair—each poster depicted a
suggestion of fancy dress—to the
last detail, the boys were out to
beat all records, and, with the cooperation of the ladies, the result
was top notch, and an entertainment that will be difficult to surpass.
For a decorative scheme, the
interior of the Mine Hall was converted into a veritable rose garden,
blooms of all shades covering the
walls, leafy bowers twining the
balcony rails, surmounted by garlands of daffodils on the roof supports. These, ill contrast to a profusion of huge sun-flowers covering
the rear wall, backed by a design
in black and gold, decorated lights,
the whole framed by Japanese
lanterns, presented a picturesque
blaze of color, that was a delight
to V/ip eye. With the floor crowded by dancers, dressed in clever
and fantastic costumes, each moving with swaying measure to
music from the Elks' orchestra—
who generously obliged to a request for extended time—the effect
was a kaleidoscopic variety of
shade and movement.
Whimsical, grotesque, ingenious,
every imaginable costume was
there. The craze of the hour was
represented by a number of crossword puzzles, and tlies'e, mingled
with clowns, niggers, witches, fortune-tellers, Irish colleens, waiters,
old-gossips, Indian princes, scouts,
coons in all stages of prosperity,
peasant girls, Turkish delight, a
Mine Club mascot, fairy-tale
heroines, Gypsies, perriots, a jailbird, ghosts, Klu-khix-klansmen,
departed spirits, sailors, and
Scotchmen.
From such a list—and space
only prevents us mentioning all—
the judges had no easy task, but
the gathering was delighted when
the names of Mrs. J. Hawkes was
announced as the winner of the
ladies most original costume. The
dress was half a Red Cross nurse
and half a soldier; the novelty of
the idea being cleverly carried out.
Other ladies gaining prizes were
Mrs. Bob Stewart (best dressed)
and Miss Victoria (Sis) Deane (best
comic).
Among the men, prizes finally
fell to Messrs. Robert Strand (most
original) Leslie Brown (best dressed) and Tommy Evans (best comic)
Thejudg.es of.the costumes were
Mrs. F. E. Patton, Miss Leitch,
a'i;)d Mr. 0. McLachlan. The floor
was under the management of
Messrs. Paddy Ryan, Harold Talbot. A. L. Ployart, L. P. Lipsky,
and Dr. V. Bisooe; the latter being chairman of the danoe committee to the Mine Club, who expresses his sinoerest thanks to all
those who helped so heartily towards the success of an evening
that, to the onlookers, as well as
dancers, will remain a pleasurable
memory, for months, At the
entraiio. of the hall as well as upstairs, the building buzzed with
gay voices and laughter.
Supper was served in the Mine
Three Basketball Gaines
Played In Anyox
During Week
Three games of basketball are all
that have been played since our
last issue, and all these games were
played at the Beach Gymnasium.
The first game was between the
Hustlers and the Rovers, the latter,
however, were forced to default,
being unable to field a full squad.
A picked-tip five gave the Hustlers
a workout, the latter finishing on
top by 18 points to 12.
The High School girls were victorious over the Pioneers by a 14
to 2 soore. The losers put up a
game light, but poor shooting
spelled their defeat. Jean Moffatt
was tlie outstanding player for the
winners, scoring 12 points. Margaret Dupiiis notched the only
basket for the Pioneers.
The teams were: Pioneers, Mrs.
Shelton, Misses R. 0. O'Niel, M.
Dupuis, M. O'Niel, M. Stevens.
High School: Misses Morley,
O'Niel, Deith, Champion, Moffatt,
Chapman, McLachlan.
The Miners had a walk-away in
the senior tussle, taking the Coke
Pj&al into camp to the tune of 27
points to 10. The losers were completely outclassed and never really
got started. Bob Stewart was the
bright, light for the winners, with
nine points to his credit. Frank
Gordon turned in a nice game for
the Coke Plant, making 6 of the
20 points.
The teams were: Mine, 8. Stewart, Mitchell, R. Stewart, Deane,
Halverson, Peters, McNichol.
Coke Plant: Cody, Yorke Staines,
Gordon, Hogben, Thompson, Smith

the advanced age of eighty-six.
The time tfial death occurred was
3 a.m.

sad bereavement.
Club quarters, and was in charge
of Ed. Blundell. Among many
others that labored enthusiastically, thanks are due to Mike Cranley
who provided transportation to
and from the beach. It was nearly four o'clock in the morning before the last of the merry throng
were home. The Mine Club is
surely on the map.

Anyox Community
League Hold Their
Annual Meeting
Nominations for New Council
Are Made
Activities Of Past Year Outlined
By Secretary
The Annual Meeting of the
Community League was held in
the Recreation Hall, on Wednesday evening, February 25th. The
attendance was fair, the fact that
there was no kicks to register having something to do with the small
turn-out; but those who were present were enthusiastic enough.
The President. Dr. Harper, occupied the chair until the report of the
Secretary was read when he retired, and Mr. George Warwick was
selected by the meeting. The
minutes of the preceding Annual
Meeting were read and adopted.
The Secretary.s report outlined
the various activities of the League
for 1924, told of what revenue was
produced in all branches as well
as what the different departments
had cost. A balance sheet as at
December 31st., 1924, was handed
to the inembors attending as well
as a copy of the newly printed
Constitution and By-Laws, which
the last Annual Meeting had
tuthorized the council to prepare.
Apart from the information on the
balance sheet, and showing the
financial standing of the League,
total expenditures on all accounts
for the year had amounted to $80,-
000.00, while receipts from all
sources were slightly in excess of
$84,000.00. In general activities
covering athletics, gymnasium,
library, entertainments, etc., the
League had spent over $11,000.00,
while receipts from these sources
had been about $6,000.00. The
balance sheet would show that the
cash assets alone would show a
balance in the bank of $3,500.00,
as against a balance of $2,300.00
in 1923. At that time there had
been paid out on deferred expense
account.some $300.00, which gave
us actually $2,600.00, while at
December, 1924, there was over
$700.00 to the credit of the
League in deferred charges, which
made the amount really to our
credit "at present $4,200.00. There
had been one particularly heavy
expense in 1924, the re-making of
the tennis courts, which had cost
slightly over $2,500.00, while the
expenses in replacing fire losses
were also heavy. During the coming year we cannot hope to get
the revenue we received in 1924,
but expect to make both ends
meet, and a little better, by judicious management. The swings on
the children's playground will have
to be renewed, there will be expenditures to make at the ball
grounds, while a summer camp
will possibly be established at Alice
Arm, where the camps built by the
Granby Co. a year ago for lumbering purposes may be available.

Salt Chuck Mine, Ketchikan
Increase Production
The Alaska Platinum and Palladium Company, at tlie head of
which is J. E. Chilberg, plans to
increase the milling capacity of the
Salt Chuck mine by the installation of a big ball mill. The Salt
Chuck mine, which is located near
Ketchikan, long since passed from
the prospect stage into a producer of no mean proportions, and
sufficient ore bodies are now blocked out to justify a much greater
production capacity. Values in
the mine are chiefly platinum and
palladium, both of which metals
belong to the rare class, and are
very valuable. If memory serves,
the Salt Chuck mine is the only
one of that particular kind in the
United States. It is a property of
potential value.
Mineral Production Falls
Off In Western States
From all appearances, the mining industry is due for a prolonged
period of prosperity. The price
i of copper has advanced to nearly
15 cents per pound. Lead and
zinc are demanding record prices,
and nearly all other metals have
advanced in price, or are demanding prices that make their mining
profitable. The dull period
following the close of the war is
now over. Now that the world
is settling down to work, the
pendelum has swung in the
opposite direction, and good times
for the mining industry seems to be
in store. Investors are now turning again to the mining industry as
an investment for their capital.
These hard headed men of the
world have already sensed a world
shortage of some metals, and shortly there will be a scramble for
such metals as lead and zinc.
The world is using an increasing
amount of all metals each year,
and this increase will be bigger as ^^ ^^ fiy .^^
the population or the world increases, and people demand more
comforts, and more rapid transit,
which can not be obtained without a supply of different metals.
In view of these facts, as time goes
on, capital will be clamoring for
mining properties, and every ore
showing will be developed. This
state of affairs may not take place
until after we have been measured
for our wooden suit, but the fact
remains that capital for the development of mining properties was
never so plentiful as it is today,
and this healthy state is likely to
be perpetual.
The Total value of mineral production of the western states of
U.S.A. fell of the extent of $9,886.-
210 last year as compared with
1923. Arizona holds first place,
Utah has taken second place,
which was held last year by Montana. Tlie latter state taking
third place this year. During
1924 Arizona produced 676,000,000
pounds of copper. Montana produced 150,182,000 pounds.

The United States gave 6,477
settlers to western Canada during
the year 1924, according to figures
announced by the Winnipeg office
of the Dominion department of
immigration. Immigrants from
the republic to western Canada for
1923 totalled 8,704. The wealth
brought in by these settlers during
1924 amounted to $1,995,347 in
cash and $344,251 in value of
effects. During 1923 $1875,786 in

One Former Resident of Alice
Arm Married and Another
Injured
Portland Canal News
V. F. Lade, better known as
Vince," one of the most popular
mining men of the district, was
married in Prince Rupert on the
evening of February 11th. to Mrs.
Ida Flemming, who came from
Vancouver to meet him. The
ceremony was performed at the
home of M. M. Stephens, by Arch
Deacon Rix. The newly-weds
arrived iu Stewart Thursday, and
that night were tendered an old-
fashioned chivrairi. They have
established a home near the east
end of fifth steet. The News joins
with the entire population of the
Portland Canal district in extending felicitations.
Ernie Armstrong suffered a
serious accident Monday morning,
and is now in the hospital under
the care of Dr. Willians. He was
climbing into the rear of his bobsled in Hyder, and a sudden jolt
threw him backwards to the
ground, injuring his spinal column
just below the base of the neck.
A. W. Kelly, his teamster, is carrying on the business while Ernie is
laid up.
The main estimates for the
coming fiscal year tabled in the
House of Commons by Hon. J. A.
Robb, acting minister of finance,
contain a sum of $500,000 for the
grain elevator at Prince Rupert.
Halifax gets $575,000 for an
elevator, and Esquimalt drydock is
provided to the extent of $1,600,
;000,„. ,
The hope of every ski fan in Revelstoke, as well as that of those
who may not be enthusiasts in this
popular winter sport, was realized
last Wednesday, when all records
on skis were broken and the
marvellous one of Nels Nelson, who
jumped 240 feet, was hung up.
Canadian immigration figures
for 1924. just published, fall short
of those for 1923 by 12,800, but
taking in the 37,317 repatriations,
the gain is 24,447, in a total of
16-1,767. The 1924 figures from
overseas are 57,612 from Britain
and Ireland; 50.510 from other
countries, and 16,328 from the
United States, a total of 121,450.
In December, the repatriations
from the United States outnumbered immigrants, 31,167 to 2,765.
A despatch is to the effect that
the embargo on the export of gold
from Canada be not lifted iu July,
but extended for another year, that
no permit for the export of placer
gold be granted in British Columbia, and that the present Mining
act as it effects gold exports be renewed when it comes up for
revision a year from next July,

Says Good Things Of
Granby Officials
The British Columbia Financial
Times, in commenting on the appointment of Mr. H. R. Plommer,
as treasurer for the Granby Co.,
and the retirement of Mr. Valentine Quinii, says: Mr. Valentine
Ojuiini, comptroller of the Granby
Mining aud Smelling Company,
with headquarters in Vancouver,
has resigned to enter business here
on his on account. Air. Quinii has
some large undertakings concerned
with British Columbia industry in
view which will shortly take him
to the Old Country on important
business.
Mr. Quinn, in addition to carry-
jug on his duties as local treasurer
of the Granby Company in an
exemplary manner, has, by his
public spirit and friendly personality, carved out for himself a
warm spot among Vancouver business men. It is indeed pleasing to
note that he is interesting himself
iu British Columbia affairs and
looks forward to developing a position for himself iu our business life.
Mr. Quinn is being succeeded by
Mr. H. It. Plommer, who has for
several years been resident executive official of the Canada Copper
Corporation at Allenby. When
the Allenby property was taken
over by the Granby, he joined the
latter organization, and continued
in charge of the Copper Mountain
property. Due to his long association with the mining industry of
British Columbia, he is well known,
and has a large number of friends,
particularly iu Vancouver, where
he is being welcomed to his new
position.
