The regular -weekly meeting of
the Community League Counoil was
held in the Recreation Hall, Wednesday February 14th.- Present:
Secy-Treasurer Lowry, councillors'
Mrs. McKay, Messrs. Noel Seidelman and Rowley. Mr. Lowry acted
I' as chairman.
On the reading of the minutes of
the preceding meeting, it was
moved by Mr. Noel and seconded
by Mr. Seidelman that they be
adopted as read.
The Secretary's report stated
that a Profit and Loss Statement
for December,-was ready, and had
been posted in the Library and Pool
Room. The Klondyke Night's
Entertainment had incurred a
small loss. The Mine pioture
machine was installed and had been
tested that afternoon, and it was
the intention to commence show-
i ing of pictures there on Friday,
February 16th. In connection
with the claim of Mr. J..H. Parker,
Mr. Selfe had checked" it up, and
j. the amount of $3.25 was all he had
I coming to him.
As Mr. Parker had requested
that his dues for December and
January should be returned to him,
the Council deoided that he could
not claim December as he was then
an employee of the League, but that
the  January" collection would be
'returned to him..

I League will be held on February
A letter-was read frourthe Rich-
!ardson Ball-Bearing Roller Skate
Company, stating that they did not
manufacture a two-wheeled rubber
tire skate at present, that such a
skate was not a success commercially, bnt rather vfor expert use
and   suggested that the   regular
metal or fibre wheel be used.   The

The Chair asked Mr. Selfe what
' arrangements were made to handle
the tickets, etc., at the Mine Hal).'
Mr. Selfe stated than it was bis
intention to look after this himself
for the time being.   The Klondyke
Night was discussed, and while it
was Shown that a small deficit
i resulted, the articles made for this

| worth something, and would more
than meet the shortage as equip-
fiment for future purposes.
In connection with the Klondyke

I; those who had helped with  the
; affair should be given some small
token of appreciation,- and asked

Another Logging Camp
for Alice Arm
Mr. C. P. Riel, who is now operating a logging camp down the
inlet, about one mile from Perry
Bay, was in town during the week.
He stated that operations had already commenced, and that falling
was being carried on. He estimates
to log about one million feet of
lumber. At the commencement
operations will be carried on by
hand logging, but later itisproposed
to put in a donkey engine to haul
the logs. Mr. Riel has also secured
a contract from the Granby Mining
Company for a supply of sawn
timber, to be used in construction
work at Anyox during the coming
summer and this will keep the
local-mill busy for a good part of
the summer. In order to cope with
the expected -rush of business
during the coming year Mr. Riel
expects to instal a heavier engine
engine at the mill, and also instal
a planing mill in the near future.

motion, with Mr. Rowley as seconder, all who helped at the
opening of the gymnasium, with
the exception of the Councillors,
will-be given two passes for one
week, commencing Thursday, February 15th.
Mr. 'Selfe told of arrangements
made with Mr. Pound, of the Elk's
Dramatic Club, for shifting the
picture screen' back two feet, so
that additional room could be had
for the performance of "Charley's
Aunt," which will take place
shortly. The Elks were to' bear a
share of the cost of this alteration
in the proportion of 60-40.     T
Mr. Selfe reported on his recent
trip to Vancouver, and what he
had accomplished in the 'interests
of the League while there.
Pictures of the best grade obtainable had been booked through the
best distributors. On most of these
he had been able to get fairly good
prices, and the League should benefit by his efforts while away. He
had also gone into the question of
bowling alleys, and found that it
would cost somewhere in the
neighbourhood of $1500 to instal
and equip the alleys "contemplated.
Mr. Noel thought that it would be
a good idea to go further into this
matter of bowling alleys," and believed that it might be possible to
buy this particular lay-out on
terms whioh would enable the
League to pay the bulk of the
price after bowling became revenue
Basketball is the king, of sport
in Anyox at present, jif we might
leave out snow shovelling, which
is not a sport, but a necessity,
these day's of the cold February
blasts. One maii was heard ; to
remark that the function of a stove
at this time is to demolish the
mineral recources of the province;
But returning to 'basketball,
there is no coldness in that. game.
Sometimes the contest gets rather
heated, and rough play is being
indulged in, occasionally by accident and at other times, otherwise.
To err is human, but the referees
should call every foul they see, for
how else are we going to have a
good scientific game.
There are now three leagues
running, and there is no governing
body to whom a team may appeal
for ruling. There should also be
official referees appointed by that
body. Several times in the past
it has been a problem to get someone to referee a game, and it has
fallen upon Mr. Cheshire, manager
of the Gym. to take the whistle.
The Mine made a runaway with
the C. M. C, 54.20, but we under-

The taking over of the Copper
Mountain property at Princeton,
by the Granby Company, has
created great interest in Mining
circles throughout the province.
An aggressive policy has been
shown by the company during the
past year. A sum of money
amounting to $1,200,000 has been
authorized for the improvement of
the Anyox plant. Three copper
properties are under bond by the
Granby Company in the north, and
other likely properties are being
continually investigated. Other
mining companies come into the
north and bond properties, and,
should they prove a' failure, or can
not be developed through lack of
capital, they damn the whole country and leave it. The Granby
Company's engineers are on the
look out for desirable properties in
the north all the time, despite the
fact that so far they have not
secured a property that came
up to        their expec
tations. They realize that the
whole country can not be judged
by one property. They are in a
position' to operate a property more
cheaply than, any other mining
company due to the proximity of
Anyox plant, and future events will
no doubt prove that the prosperity
of this district will be due to a
large extent to the farsighted policy
of the Granby Company in acquiring properties and developing
them into mines.

Following is what one of our subscribers thinks of the killing of the
"Beer by the Glass" measure by the
provincial legislature.
Beer by the glass, it did not pass,
Ye lords of legislation,
To sit beneath the moonbeams pale,
And di'ink with some fond Abigail
A glass of skookum ginger ale;.
Ye Gorki what dissapation.
What of that nose; the blooming rose,
The pride ot all the nation.?
Since from its light the soul has fled,
That cheery nose its glow must shed
And beerless grope its way to bed,
In beads of perspiration.
Don't look so blue, just as though you
Were crushed by some steam roller.
It does'nt matter what you drink,     |
You should'nt really stop to think;
Just pour it down like you're a sink,}
And drink, drink Uoca-Oola.
If scarce the beans within your jeans,
You can't get what you oughter;
You cannot go your rum,
You're out of Scotch aud on the bum,
Go boldly forth.and fill your drum,
And drink there tons of water.
Here it is the middle of February
and no big gold strike in the north
reported yet for the spring stam-
peders. Something wrong, somewhere.

Wednesday, from Terrace, having

trail. He leaves today for Anyox
and will follow the telegraph line
from there to Stewart.

eight years. They will live in
Cecil Parmitter returned on

L. R. Clapp, assistant, general
manager, returned on Monday,

James Mallin, who last week
was committed before Stipendary
Magistrate Conway, at Anyox, for
stealing a watch, the property of
Niel McLeod, was taken to Prince
Rupert and tried before Judge
Young, who sentenced him to jail
with hard labor for four .months.
Opening of the
A; C. L Gym.
A Klondyke Night was staged with Great Success
On Thursday night, February 8,
we "mushed over the trail" to the
new A. C. L, Gymnasium, whioh
the League was officially opening
with what was announced \as a
"Klondyke Night." The arriving
travellers were met at the door by
Mr. Kelley, who for 50 cents che-
chako money, doled out $500.00
worth of another specie, backed by
the Jim Crow Bank.
The scene inside the shack reminded one of a page from "The
Trail of '98," or "The spoilers of
the North." "The kid that tickled
the ivories," was playing a jazzy
tune, assisted bp several other well
known artists, some picking banjoes, and others scraping gut,
blowing brass, or beating them all
with the drumsticks.
A gay crowd of dancers occupied
the centre of activities, and on the
sides were games, which called for
the exclamation, "them days is
gone forever." Some leather-
lunged individuals invited the
"come on" to woo lady luck on the
wheel of fortune. A little farther
on, a very serious "Bald faced kid"
manipulated the "case",at the Faro
Bank. "African billiards,'' which
is known as "rolling the bones,"
was favored mostly by the ladies,
in fact, this table reminded one of
a ladies aid meeting.
Along one side of the hall, was
the proverbal bar, but instead of
the "poke of dust" we noticed sew
eral hot tamales being empted from
their husks.
It was a grand night, and particularly so for some of the players
who carried off the bacon.
The prize winners with the biggest bank rolls at midnight, were:
1st. prize, Norman Fraser, with
$95,000.00 in wooden money; 2nd.
prize, J. Sherman, with $75*000.00
and 3rd. prize, Sid. Armstrong,
with $65,000.00.

The secret of
good beer lies
in purity—
That's why Cascade Beer has for 35 years
been British Columbia's favorite health
beverage. No expense has been spared to
ensure purity. It has cost a million dollars to build a plant .to accomplish this.
But after testing Cascade Beer, you agree
that it has been worth it.
