tastefully arranged banquet, when
the various toasts were proposed-
The grateful thanks of the Order
is certainly due to the various
ladies and gentlemen who gave
such a delightful musical entertainment during the banquet.
Judging from the success of this

discussion and it is hoped that a
large number of parents will be
present to contribute views.
Lots of snow covers the ground

League Council Session
Last Three Hours
The A. C. L. Council was in session three hours on Wednesday
evening in the hope of winding up
business for the Annual Meeting.
Certain constitutional amendments
were debated. There was an exchange of opinions on the advisability of a two year term for councillors, four to be elected each year.
There was a division also on the
question of by-elections for the
council instead of appointment to
vacancies arising during the year.
It was decided unanimously that eligibility for a seat on the council
should be restricted to those of six
month's standing as members.
Privileges of the League, however,
will be accorded to all from the moment of joining.
An attractive new set of stage
scenery will likely be installed in
Recreation Hall before the Annual
Meeting; and a new piano is proposed. Prices on "talkies" were
discussed, action being left to the
next council. The secretary of the
Basketball League will receive an
honorarium of $5 monthly during
the season, and Mr. W. F. Ring
will also be compensated for his
work with the physical training

Great Discussion Over
Watt Dismissal
Victoria, Feb. 13th.—Liberal
members of the Legislature, led by
T. D. Pattullo and A. M. Manson,
are demanding a complete investigation into the dismissal of Norman Watt, former government
agent at Prince Rupert. Discussion of the affair has taken up two
days and the debate is continuing.
A. M. Manson has suggested that
a Royal Commission be appointed
to investigate, but Premier Tolmie
stated that he favored a House
Committee of Investigation, which
even Watt himself preferred.
Cy. Peck Rubukes Shelly In
Watt Debate
Victoria, Feb. 14th.—The Watt
debate still oontinues in the Legis
lature. A rebuke was given Hon.
W. C. Shelly by Col. Cy. Peck,
V. C. yesterday, when he stated
that Norman Watt should be reinstated in public service. He said
that members associated with him
demand that Watt gets a square
deal. Watt is stated to have stolen
$150.00 of public money.
Great Medical Discovery Will
Benefit Women
Montreal. Feb. 14th.—A great
medical discovery for the benefit of
women has been made in McGill
university laboratory. Sir Arthur

is in favor of the government tak-
overall publicly supported hospitals in the province. This was the
substance of a resolution placed
before the Legislature yesterday.
Powers   Will   Reduce
Naval Armaments
London, Feb. 13th.—A com
promise of the five naval powers,
represented at the Naval Parley,
is in sight. It appears very probable that all five nations will agree
upon a substantial reduction of
naval armaments during the next
five years. If this is attained, and
there is no doubt it will, the main
object of the conference will be
achieved. It is not considered
likely, however, that France and
Japan will agree with Great Britain and the United States for the
abolition of submarines.

B, MOSS, Editor and Publisher.
In our last issue we published
the cream of the world's news in
abbreviated form for the previous
two days. We believe that this
new service is appreciated by our
readers of Anyox and Alice Arm.
It is our intention of carrying this
news each week. Isolated as we
are with only two incoming mails
each week, we are in darkness as
to world events over the weekend, but in future the Herald will
keep everyone up to date. Something that happens in Europe,
Asia or Africa on Friday, will be
published in the Herald on Saturday morning. This news service
has increased our overhead expenses—which already were very
heavy—but we hope to obtain a
number of new subscribers, to
whom this new service will appeal,
which will offset our increased
expenditure. An increased subscription list means that everyone
gets a better paper, for more time
and money can be expended on it.
During the past nine years it has
always been our aim to publish as
bright and newsy a newspaper as
possible. That our efforts have
been appreciated is shown by the
fact that the Herald is still in existence, and as virile as the first
week of publication.
Stobie   Forlong   Mines Alberta Labor Objects To
In B. C. Close Down Coaljhmping
From Edmonton comes the news
that the Alberta Federation of Labor wants a prohibitive duty
against the dumping of West Virginia coal into Winnipeg and other
centres in their efforts to keep Alberta coal out of the eastern markets. The resolution, following on
the heels of a discussion of unemployment, was sent to the Federal
One of the direct results of the
assignment by Stobie, Forlong &
Co. has been the closing down of
live British Columbia mines sponsored by that company. They are
Lome Gold, Yankee Girl, Kootenay Florence, Slocan Rambler and
Utica. Instructions were immediately issued to discharge the crews
and close down the mines pending
the outcome of the investigation.
Three of these mines had practically reached a stage in their development where they were ready to
be placed on production.
More than 100 men were thrown
out of work by the shut-down,
It is stated that during the past
twelve months Stobie, Forlong &
Co. have personally supplied ap
mines in operation and bring them
to the production stage.
Record Amount Copper
Produced In 1929
Customer—Have you any old
weapons from the age of chivalry?
Shopkeeper—Not just at present; I
expect a consignment in a short
time; they are not quite rusty
enough as yet.
Last year was a record year in
American copper, reports the U. S.
Bureau of Mines. Prices started
to rise in 1918 and continued their
upward swing well into 1929; during the summer they declined
somewhat but maintained a high
level throughout the year. As a
result, production was far ahead of
any previous twelve months, and
11 per cent ahead of 1928 (estimated smelter production for 1929 was
2,030,000,000 pounds.) Total primary and secondary output of copper by the refineries was 13 per
cent over 1928, at 3,080,000,000
pounds. Stocks of refined copper,
however, more than doubled during
1929, owing to the greatly stimulated production; during the last
quarter of the year, production at
mines and smelters was definitely

MARKETS are older than civilization.
From the dawn of history markets
have served to facilitate exchange of

Through the ages a babel of shouting

Organization of Joint stock companies
more than 150 years ago as a means of
raising capital for business enterprises
created a necessity for a market for
stocks. The flrst exchange was organized
in London in 1773. It steadily evolved
through cumbersome methods to an
efficient system. This experience stands
behind trading systems now practiced
in exchanges like London, New York,
Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver.
Every method is practiced to insure
fairness to investors and prevent unethical manipulation of prices. The
system of trading is recognized as fair
and equitable throughout the world.
The Vancouver Exchange operates under
a Charter passed and approved by the
Provincial Parliament on April 25,1907.
A market place for the buying and selling of stocks, the Vancouver Stock
Exchange is essential to commerce. If
foreign capital is to flow freely in develop,
ing Western Canadian resources, the
prestige of this institution must be
maintained. The Exchange brings buyer
and seller in contact with each other,
sets a recognized current price for listed
stocks and is a barometer of the success
of individual enterprises.
An Exchange Is a disinterested party in
transactions between selling and buying
interests of the public. Fluctuations
take their course in accordance with
buying and selling orders. When the
public gives buying support to certain
stocks, prices rise. When support is
withdrawn, prices fall. Predictions as
to possible values is a matter the client
alone  can  decide  for  himself.
And as a piece of business machinery,
the Stock Exchange attracts capital to
mining undertakings or Industrial
enterprises which otherwise might never
come into being. An Exchange is a

old service of great value to Western

Great industrial development
throughout western Canada which
in the last two decades has brought
the annual gross value of manufactured articles produced in the western provinces to $600,000,000 was
described recently by John F.
Sweeting, industrial commissioner
of the Canadian Pacific Railway, in
an address to officers of the company at Winnipeg. "Those of us
who have lived through and watched western Canada developments
during the last 20 years are assured as to the future of that part
of the Dominion," he said.
"Railway conditions as they exist
in Canada to-day are readily comprehensible and we are in the fortunate position of being able to assure our shareholders that the decreases represent the result of an
extraordinary combination of conditions and that the railways have
not failed in efficiency or otherwise," stated E. W. Beatty, chairman and president of the Canadian Pacific Railway, in an address
recently at the Royal York Hotel,
at the annual meeting of the Com-
mertial Travellers' Association ot
Canada. Mr. Beatty added that the
situation in 1929 was exceptional
and not likely to be repeated in
subsequent years.
The North German Lloyd Company of Montreal is arranging for
a trip of German farmers to Canada

Honey to the amount of 55,181
pounds was produced in Nova Scotia in 1928, according to official

Silver Creates New Record
Low Price
Bar silver dropped to the lowest
price for all time on the London
market last week, being quoted at
19 15-16 pence per standard ounce.
Cable advices from London gave
no definite reason for the drop,
other than there appeared to be far
more selling than buying. China
was reported as having both
bought and sold. Up until nearly
noon Tuesday, last week, no sales
were reported in the New York
market, but dealers expected that

Governme't Removes Reserve
On Copper Deposits
The Department of the Interior
announces that having decided
that copper deposits lying north of
latitude 65 and between longitude
106 and 116 may bo explored best
by private enterprise, the reservation on this area will be removed
July 1, 1930. The reserve has
been in force since 1918 and considerable investigation by the government department lias shown
that scattered fragments of native
copper are to be found and that
extensive deposits of low grade
ores exist.
The Klondike is not by any
manner of means dead. Private

to a basis of population it represents between $400 and $500 per
capita in the camp, which is, at
least a beginning in so far as supporting the population is concerned.
