English Financier Makes
Inspection Tidewater
Mr. Geo. A Close, financier,
arrived at Alice Arm from England on Monday, in order to examine the Tidewater Molybdenum
property that is being developed
by the Dalhousie Mining Co, and
i'in which he is a shareholder. Mr.
Close was accompanied by W. D,
Brown of Victoria, a director of
the Dalhousie Mining Co.
Mr. Close also represent? a financial group in England who are
shareholders in the Dalhousie
Mining Co. In an interview with
the Herald he stated that he was
highly pleased with the businesslike manner in which the affairs of
the company were carried on. He
was also enthused with tlie showings of ore at the mine and assured
the Herald that as a result of his
investigations, sufficient funds
would be available to put the mine
on a producing basis as early as
In reply to a question regarding
future operations, and the date of
the installation of. a mill at the
Tidewater Molybdenum. Mr Brown
stated that present plans are foi'
continuous development operations
throughout the winter. When
sufficient ore has been developed to
warrant the installation of a mill,
it will be installed. Judging from
the success attained this year, the
installation of a mill will not be
long delayed. Tlie amount of ore
developed, and the surface showings far exceeded his expectations,
and the conservative policy ol' Mr.
Angus McLeod, superintendent,
was an asset that was appreciated
by the company. Mr. McLeod, he
said, was conducting operations
in an efficient and economic manner, and the results he had attained this year far surpassed the
company's highest hopes.
As soon as the trail from tidewater has been improved by the
government, a compressor plant
will be installed, so that much
, greater progress can be attained.
In addition to his other business
enterprises, Mr. Close is the owner
of a string of moving picture
theatres. During his trip through
Canada and the United States he
takes moving pictures with a
small machine, and during his
visit to Alice Arm he used up several reels of films both around
town and at the mine. He made a
trip as far as 9-mile on, the Dolly
Varden Railway, and enjoyed a
brief fishing period at 4-mile
Anyox Scouts Enjoyed
Fishing, Hiking and
Fire Fighting
The Anyox Troop of Scouts
under the leadership of Scout
master Gale, who returned home
from their summer camp at Terrace
enjoyed a wonderful outing'.
Twenty-six attended the camp, and
no sickness or accident marred the
The Scouts spent many happy
hours in the great northern hinterland, fishing' and hiking being the
chief attractions. The longest hike
took two days, and was greatly
Fighting forest fires was also a
part of their duties and the Rovers
and older scouts climbed to an
altitude of 5500 feet to put out a
forest fire. They succeeded in
doing this after being out for eighteen hours, and returned weary and
hungry and glad of the meal which
the younger boys assisted by Mrs
Gale had prepared for them.
Another feature was the Concert
put on by the Troop to help the
local troop, and from all points of
view it was successful and much
enjoyed. Terrace people were
very kind to them and Mr. Dix
of Kalem Lake did all he could to
give the boys a good time. He
secured boats for the Troop and did
all possible to show them the good
fishing holes, etc. A dinner was
given by Mrs. ^Little to the boys,
and the empty plates spoke a
volume. Water in the lake is
rather cold. Bill Cavers was the
first to brave it.    He fell in.
Sufferers of Blakeburn
Disaster Need Relief
Down in the bowels of the earth
recently at Blakeburn the lives of
45 miners were snuffed out. A
number have left widows and
children. To help those who are

opened throughout the province.
Lists for both Payroll Deductions
and Cash Contributions are at the
Mine Counter, Beach Counter, Elks
Club, Flats Barber Shop, and

Ross Oatman Wins The
Tennis Championship
On Saturday afternoon, Ross
Oatman won the semi-finals of the
Anyox Tennis Singles Championship series by defeating Mr. George
Lee in three straight sets, 6-2; 6-4;
Ideal weather prevailed, the day
being bright and warm, with no
wind to handicap the players.
Oatman played a strong consistent
game at all times, but the score
does not adequately depict the
fight put up by Lee. Quite a number of games went to Deuce two or
three times before a decision was
reached, with Oatman getting the
breaks and winning practically all
of these long games. The total
point score was Oatman i09, Lee
98, which indicates the closeness of
the play.
On Sunday, under the same ideal
weather conditions, Oatman repeated his performance of the day
before, by also winning the finals
from Jerry Macintyre in three
straight sets, 6-1; 6-4; 6-1.
Before the first set was completed it was very evident to' all
who saw the contest that Oatman
had caught Macintyre on an "Off"
day, for Jerry was not playing anywhere up to his usual form, driving
out and netting'repeatedly.
Only for a short time in the
second set did Macintyre show anything like his regular form, at this
time winning three straight games
to lead 4-1, before things started to
go wrong again.
Oatman played a hard consistent
game and deserves great credit for
his victory, his game being steady
and accurate at all times, which
pretty well tells the story. He thus
retains the championship which he
also won last year. A feat which
marks him as a brilliant player.
In the event that a Men's Singles
Tournament for the championship
of Northern B.C., and the Jabour
Cup is held in Prince Rupert this
year, Oatman will be a worthy
contender to represent Anyox.
Celts Defeat a Picked
Team In Friendly
Rain Checks Bush Fire
A bush, fire started last weekend at the mouth of the Illiance
River. It quickly spread and • due
to the protracted dry weather
threatened at one time to assume
alarming proportions. It was held
in cheek, however, by rain which
commenced to fall on Wednesday.
Before the rain it had spread a
considerable distance up the Illiance Valley and was also eating its
way up the slopes of McGrath
On Wednesday the 10th, in a
friendly benefit game, the Celts
added further to their reputation by
beating a team picked from the
Mine and Smelter Clubs. On the
play, however, the mixed team
really deserved a better fate, goals
being missed by inches on three or
four occasions. The Celts of course
had the advantage of combination,
whereas their challengers had not
had the opportunity of a practice
together. The losers put up some
fast football, Dixon brothers, Morrison, Steve Peel, Tom Buchanan,
Jimmy Donaldson, Max Legg and
Joe Taylor playing their usual
splendid game. For the Celts,
Bert Field scored one again from a
long shot in mid field, Doug McConachie added two more scalps to
his belt, and W. G. Johnston
("Sparky") got one. Final score,
4-2. It was a good, clean game,
played in a real sporting spirit, and
made a fitting wind-up for the
season. A collection was taken up
with the idea of holding a function
at which members of all three football clubs can unite in a social way
in the near future, and was generously supported.
Community League Will
Hold Arts and Crafts
An exhibition of Arts and Crafts
by amateur artists of Anyox has
been mooted for a long time. It
remained, however, for the Community League to take the matter
seriously in hand and arrange a
date, etc. for the exhibition.
It has been decided to hold it in
the Gymnasium on October 9th.
and 10th. and a Fair held in connection will be an added attraction. The exhibits will include,
oil painting, water color, pencil
work, pen and ink work, wood
carving, needlework, tapestry,
weaving, photography, modelling,
Mr. J. A. D. Stewart is in charge
of collecting exhibits. Already
a large number has been promised
and many more are expected. If
you have anything to exhibit
communicate with Mr. V. S. McRae, secretary of the Community
League, or Mr. Stewart.

Premier R. B. Bennett has fulfilled one of his election promises
He has called a special session of
parliament to deal with the unem
ployment problem during the com
ing winter, and it is safe to say
that sufficient funds will be appro
priated to assist the municipalities
and provincial governments in providing relief for those unfortunates
who are unemployed and also
their families. As we have previously stated in these columns, it
is the duty of the Federal Government to render assistance in times
of distress. The burden is too
great for municipalities and provincial governments, and Premier
Bennett has shown by his prompt
action that the government realizes
its responsibilities. Let us hope
that this year will be the last for a
long time that Federal assistance
will be required, and that during
the next year the government's
tariff policy will be smoothly working, which will be instrumental in
providing work for many who are
now unemployed.
Will the Canadian Wheat Pool
hold the present crop for higher
prices or will it sell as soon as
possible at the present rate? This
is the question that is agitating the
minds of all serious thinking men
in Canada. Last year the Pool
held up the wheat crop for higher
prices and the result was disastrous.
It disrupted the whole economic
structure of the Dominion, and
greatly aggravated the unemployment problem last fall and winter.
We, who live in a purely mining
district such as this do not feel the
immediate effects such as those
living in agricultural districts, but
we are eventually sufferers. The
holding up of the wheat crop
means millions of dollars going to
other countries that should come
to Canada. This results in less
money in circulation. It aggravates
hard times, and eventually means
that those business men who trade
with the prairie provinces have less
money for investing in mining stock
than formerly. Hard times in the
prairie provinces are quickly felt in
British Columbia.
'What is the difference between
a practical and a theoretical farmer?"
"A theoretical farmer," answered
Farmer Corntossel, "is one that
insists on trying to make a living
off the farm, and a practical one he
jes' faces the inevitable an' turns
the place over lo summer boarders."
Flin Flon Mine Is Now
Producing Copper
The Flin Flon property of the
Hudson Bay Mining & Smelting
Company has entered the production stage three months ahead of
the scheduled time. The new concentrator is now milling 1000 tons
daily, and was brought into production without any trouble. Concentrates will start moving into the
roasters early next month, and by
the end of September the company
should be well on the way to recovering and refining zinc, states
the Northern Miner.
The completion of the copper
smelter is being pushed and it is
stated that the management expects to start warming it up in
October. The Cyanide plant for
the recovery of precious metal
values will be running by the
middle of next month. By the end
of the year, approximately, the
whole 3,000 ton operation—concentrator, zinc works, copper smelter,
and gold and silver cyanide plant—
should be working at capacity.

Show on Tuesday Night
Full of Fun and Pep
Night clubs and smart, palatial
ballrooms have had endless exploitation on the screen, but for the first
time the popular priced dance hall
wins recognition in 'Radio Pictures'
dancing, all-talking, human drama,
"Dance Hall," at the Anyox theatre, Tuesday.
- One of the largest and most elaborately decorated dance floors in
the southwest—that on the Venice
pier in California, overlooking the
ocean—was used as the setting for
many of the scenes, and Mann's orchestra, of national repute both on
the vaudeville stage and in famous
hotels, is responsible for the lively
dance music.
Vina Delmar author of three outstanding best sellers, "Bad Girl,"
"Loose Ladies" and "Kept Woman," wrote the story which is
characterized as the most gripping
and essentially human play in
which either Olive Borden or Arthur Lake has appeared. Both
are featured in "Dance Hall" and
are said to give their finest portrayals of their respective careers.
Government To Restrict The
Importation of Doors
The government of Canada has
taken aotion to stop the dumping
of large quantities of fir doors into
Canada. The acting Prime Minister, Sir George Perley, yesterday
announced the passing of an order-
in-council fixing at a "reasonable
price" valuations of suoh imports
for customs duty purposes "in
order to preserve the home market
and give Canadian workmen fair
and equal opportunity of producing such doors."

Tonight's Picture Is One
That Should Not
Be Missed
If sound and dialogue is the
answ or to the excellence of such
pictures as "Romance of the Rio
Grande," and all talking Fox movietone with inusij, Anyox Theatre
patrons will cast a unanimous vote
for talking entertainment. This,
at least, is the conclusion after
viewing this Fox movietone production at the opening show yesterday and witnessing an audience
entranced for more than an hour
with the stirring picture which
unfolded before it.
"Romance of Rio Grande" is a
story of the west in pioneer times
revolving around the opposing
forces seeking to conquer the
plains, and especially one particular
vaste estate below the Rio Grande
border. It is an adapton of Katherine Gerould's stirring novel of the
Spanish Conquistadors, titled "Conquistador," and in its conversion to
the talking screen, Alfred Santell,
the director, has done a masterful
job in retaining the poignant
beauty of the local and pulsating
romance which predominates the
story. Saturday: Matinee and
N. Sutilovich arrived on Monday from a trip to Prince Rupert,
and left again for Vancouver.
Opinions Differ Regarding Copper Future
According to advices from New
York, there is considerable divergence of opinion as to the probable
course of copper prices over the
next few months. Some market
interests favor the view that the
next change should be upward.
They base their assertion on the
theory that the current quotation
is so low that several producers
cannot make a profit on their production, and are curtailing output
to meet the changed condition. In
addition the shutting down of a
number of small producers is expected to make marked reductions
in the stocks of copper on hand,
and the heavy shipments of the
past three months should further
ease the situation in this respect.
On the other hand, in the copper
trade there is less confidence of an
advance in price iii the near future
With buyers in control, and with
custom smelters continuing to book
business at the current low quota
tions, they admit that another drop
in price would not cause great
