Brilliant Gathering At
Armistice Day
The Armistice Day Dance held
on Monday evening, under the
auspices of the Anyox branch of
the Canadian Legion was one of
those affairs that leave pleasant
memories and a craving for more.
Both in attendance in numbers,
and general jovility it was easily
one of the most enjoyable dances
held for a long time. The superb
dancing floor of the Gymnasium
was crowded from the commencement until the last strains of the
Home Waltz warned everyone
that it was time for departure and
The hall was beautifully decorated with red, white and blue
streamers and festoons and was
very attractive. Around the walls
were shields emblazoned with the
names of the battles of the Great
War in which the Canadian troops
took an active part, and which
called to mind the heroic part taken
by Canadians during the struggle
when the fate of the Empire was
at stake. Mr. E. Johnson was
convener of the affair.
Two hundred and twenty-five
people attended the dance, and two
sittings were necessary to accommodate this large number at supper.
The supper was served in the dining room, aud the local troop of
Boy Scouts acted as waiters to the
guests, a duty they filled very
The Novelty Six orchestra supplied the music. Their rendering
of the dance numbers was very-
satisfactory, and added considerably to the evening's enjoyment.

E, .MOSS, Editor and Publisher,
Government statistics show that
the number of Canadians emigrating to the United Stales is steadily
decreasing. This will cause a lot
of satisfaction among Canadians,
for it shows that the prosperity of
the country is increasing and that
it is not necessary for our people
to go to a foreign country in order
to find employment or secure high
er wages. Canada is in the midst
of an era of expansion. Every
line of industry is making great
strides, and there is ample room
and unsurpassed opportunities for
every Canadian born citizen within
the confines of the Dominion.
There will always be a certain
number who wish to travel and
test their ability in other lands.
They receive the impulse from their
Anglo-Saxon ancestors, whose love
for travel and adventure have
carried the English language into
every corner of the globe. The
majority of the wanderers will re
turn, however, when their appetite
for adventure has been satisfied,
wiser in many ways, and with
broadened vision which makes for
better Canadians.
Pacific Great  Eastern
Shows Profit
For tho lirst time in the history
of the road the Pacific Great Eastern showed a profit in revenue
over operating expenses for three
consecutive months, July, August,
September, Premier Tolmie said.
Tho profit was #7,500 compared
with a deficit of $2,700 for the
same period last year.
Returns for nine months ending
'September, show a reduction ii
detiieits of $60,000 compared with
the similar period of last year.
The bulk of the improvement is
from increased revenue.

Imports of coal into Canada dur
ing September amounted to 1,944.
101 tons, including 1.800.302 tons'
from the United States, 116,849
tons from Great Britian and 26.-
959 tons from Russia. Exports of
coal in September amounted to
78.511 tons, comprising 45.165 tons
through the ports of the eastern
provinces and 33„046 tons from
the western provinces.
For over eight years we have
stated at different times that Alice
Arm was destined to become one
of the big mining camps of the
province. How long before this
happy state of affairs exist we cannot say, but judging from present
indications it is only a matter of a
few years. The expansion of the
mining industry has been swift and
quiet during the past year. No
great excitement has prevailed such
as would probably have been
caused in other camps, had such a
large number of big mining properties been acquired in one season
by one of the province's largest
mining companies. Alice Arm is
not getting the publicity in the
provincial press as is accorded
some other districts, but it is getting
Record Number Settlers
Going To Peace
Hard on the heels of the Edmonton Dominion lands office statement
that October was a record month
for homestead applications in 21
years in the Edmonton "district,
comes the statement from Neil S.
McGuire of the C. N. R. department
of colonization and agriculture, Edmonton, that 810 persons, with a
total capital of $685,660, passed
through their oflice during the month
of October.
This constitutes another record,
both in the number of settlers, and
in the amount of capital per settler,
the average working out to over
$8000 per settler.
The great majority of these settlers were Canadians and United
States citizens, Mr. McGuire states,
while fully 80 per cent, of the
month's total were Anglo-Saxon

Anaconda  Co.   Enters
Stewart District
Stewart News
A deal that is pregnant with
great possibilities for the mining
industry of this district passed its
preliminary stage some time ago,
but until this week has been kept
under cover. If carried through
to completion it will mean entry
into this district of another of the
largest mining organizations on
this continent, being none other
than the Anaconda Copper Co,
well known as ranking with the
most powerful of the world's mining organizations.
After a number of years spent
in northern British Columbia looking for a property of the type that
the Anaconda Co. wants, Mr. Harry Townsend, about the first of
last month, took a working bond
with payments spread over a period of years, on the Good Luok
group of four claims, situated on
the west side of American Creek,
three and one-half miles north of
the Mountain Bor, or some eight
miles from the railway survey on
Bear River.
The Good Luck group, which
lies at an elevation ranging from
3000 ti 5000 feet, was located and
owned by William and Fred Bos-
eucu and Charles Lindstrom.
How Sir Henry Thornton Became Head
Of C. N. R.
Premier In Favor of Coast
It is the ambition of the government to have a smelter constructed
on the coast said Premier Tolmie.
in addressing the annual meeting
of the Conservative Association at
Esquinialfc. He said negotiations
along that line weie progressing
most satisfactorily. Another
problem before the government
was to bring the resources of the
Peace River country to the coast
through British Columbia, he said.
Intimation of further reduction
in the next budget in the sales tax
of one per cent at least and the inside story of the appointment of
Sir Henry Thornton as president
of the C. N. R. featured in a recent
address of Premier Mackenzie
King who also dealt with immigration, the tariff and the record of
the government.
The man who first conceived the
idea of Sir Henry Thornton as head
of the C. N. R., the premier said,
was J. H. Thomas, now minister
in the Macdonald cabinet in England. Mr. Thomas and Mr. King
had been friends many years. Mr.
Thomas wrote to Premier King
strongly recommending Thornton,
whom ho had scon a great deal, because Thomas had been connected
with the labor organization. Mr.
Thomas wrote that he knew no
man so fair as between employees
and management. Also he was a
man of great ability.
As a result of Thomas' letter Sir
Henry Thornton became head of
the C. N. R. "If we made a good
appointment, as pretty nearly
everybody now acknowledges, we
should have that much credit,'' the
premier said.
Clay Porter has now completed
the forming of the Argentine Mining Syndicate. This was formerly
the Mobile group of claims on the
Beat River. Only a limited number of units are being offered to
the public, through the agency of
Gigot and Blanton.
