New Plans Made For
Carrying On Basketball
Following the games on Wednesday evening there was a meeting of those interested in basketball, with Vice-President Lazorek
in the chair. Beginning at 10:15
the crowd debated ways and
means until 11:25 with tho result
that a new series will start next
Wednesday with the Odd Fellows.
Celts and Ex-High contending
among themselves. A fourth team
will be allowed to enter if it can
be guaranteed by next Wednesday
and Messrs Harman and the indefatigable Secretary Winkelmann
will try tlieir oratory on the A. C.
L, Council to get two playing
nights a week. The girls will
clash in the first league fixture and
possibly the Midgets and Mites
will lead off the program. It was
observed that a good many people
are missing a lot of fun by not attending the games, and that the
absence of a gallery does uot encourage enthusiasm.
Davie Wilson who was making a
farewell appearance received applause and a vote of thanks for his
continued effort* in the furtherance of local sports.
A letter of condolence was directed to be sent to the President,
Mr. Richard Deeth.

R. MOSS, Editor and Publisher.
There has been a lot of discussion among the investing public
since the province of Alberta has
made serious charges against a
well known brokerage firm. Recently, the Daily Province of Vancouver published a lengthy editorial
dealing fully with the matter. Our
columns are not large enough for
us to quote the whole of the editorial, but below is published
some of the most outstanding parts;
"In three of the Canadian provinces, recent dealings of brokerage
houses are being investigated, and
in Alberta charges under the criminal code have been laid against
members of a prominent firm.
Without discussing in any way the
merits of the charges which are before the courts, The Province would
like to express its approval of the
action of those provincial authorities who have taken steps to clean
up an involved and difficult, and, it
may be, a dangerous situation.
"We approve an investigation into
a situation in which everything does
not appear to be exactly as it
should be, but it is not at all necessary to become hysterical, or to
suggestions contained in some
newspapers that many other brokerage houses have been "trading on
wind," that many "bankruptcies
are imminent" and scandalous exposures over a wide territory will
follow. If we get into a panic every time there is a big market
slump or a few evidences of dishonest practice, we shall not get very
far in the working out of sound
practice and the establishing of
sound conditions.
Nor is it necessary, or desirable
in this connection to condemn al
the stock brokers in the country or
the whole stock exchange business.
The stock brokers of Canada, and
particularly of Western Canada,
passed through a number of very
lean years. Recently they have
had a number of active and even a
few very hectic months. It is inevitable that when business is brisk
and money is being rapidly made,
men of all sotts will gather around
to share in quick profits. Some of
these may not be scrupulous. Others will be tempted beyond endurance by the great opportunities to
make a killing. On a rising mar
ket there are few opportunities of
weeding out the crooks and the
parasites. But when a reversal occurs, the weak spots in the speculative fabric are disclosed, and it is
only wisdom to cut away the unde-
pendable parts and repair the struc
"The stock exchanges afford not
only facilities for those who desire
to buy and sell securities. In a
young country like ours, they offer
a feasible means of developing resources, and they put in the way of
the multitude constant opportunities for sharing in the profits that
come from the development of resources. There are wildcats and
dishonest propositions—we have
from time to time indicated some of
them—and losses are suffered by
the unwary. But here again it is
not necessary to condemn a plan of
financing utterly because some dishonest men take advantage of certain weaknesses in it, or because
certain investors fail to take the
most elementary precautions before
handing over their money. It is
well known that had it not been for
the operation of tlie stock exchanges
at Vancouver and Calgary, during
the past two or three years, Turner
Valley would not be the promising
oil field it is today, and several developed British Columbia mines
would still be nothing more than
prospects. The stock exchange,
rightly conducted, can be  made a

A RECORD development and progress of every Industry in British
Columbia is the achievement of 1929.
Public interest in these events was
manifest on the Vancouver Stock
Exchange. In 1929 $129,748,630 worth
of shares wcce bought and sold on
the Vancouver Stock Exchange.
Such a volume of business requires
an almost perfect system. The operation is governed by the laws of supply
and demand. Buying and selling
orders meet on the "floor." These
orders set the price, and the Public
controls the orders. The trading concerns securities of known value, and
these securities represent undertakings on the threshold of a great
era of industrialization of Western
No undertaking can list its securities
on the Exchange without passing
an examination. First principles of
Stock Exchange operation are alike
in London, New York and Vancouver, and are strictly adhered to.
The Vancouver Stock Exchange, as
an institution, owns no stock in any
enterprise . . . sponsors no stock
flotation . . . favors no broker . . .
expresses no opinions about individual stocks. It accepts no responsibility for rise and fall of prices.
No progressive country, looking to its
industries and natural resources for
the production of National Wealth
can be without a Stock Exchange.
Like electricity, water, roads, transportation it ranks as a Public Service,
disinterested, neutral.
The purpose is to make trading
efficient, to broadcast prices instantly from the "Floor." The Public sets
the price. And the Exchange lives up
to the ideal, expressed in its charter
passed by Provincial Parliament in
1907, as long as it fulfills in every
way the duties given it to perform.
This advertisement is published by Members of the Vancouver Stock Exchange in order to
disseminate information concerning the functions of a Stock Exchange and the Business of
Buying and Setting Securities* (*
ALICE   ARM   AND   ANYOX   HERALD.  Saturday.    February   1.  1930
Several     International
Questions Come Before
Parliament has been summoned
to assemble at Ottawa on Thursday,
February 20th. for the fourth session of the sixteenth Parliament.
The date, a week later than last
year, it is said to be due to the
desire to have the three federal by-
elections concluded and to conclude
other conferences and arrangements
before the House meets.
The volume of business in sight
is large, and may be said to be contentious in many cases, especially
in view of the fact that, this being
the fourth session of the parliament,
there is usage for dissolution and a
general election although no indication of such has been given by
the government.
The tariff will probably come in
for chief attention, especially in
view of the fact that the United
States Congress is expected to dispose of its tariff revision.
Another proposal certain to evoke
discussion is that of the United
States for a large armed force along
the border to enforce prohibition.
Linked up with this question is the
one previously discussed of prohibiting the export from Canada of
liquor cargoes to the United States.
As for the armed force along the
border, such is looked upon as a
potential hazard to the present har-
nionius international relations.
Whether Parliament will sanction
the co-operation mooted is doubtful.
The St. Lawrence waterway project will also come up this session,
although there is nothing to show
so far, that the treatment will be
The fourth international question
will have reference to the Sockeye
Salmon Treaty, which was held up
last year.

Secretary Van.   Stock
Exchange Gives
Molding the view that the public
generally does not appreciate the
exact service which a slock exchange gives to a community, A. E.
Sprague, secretary of the Vancouver Stock Exchange, has briefly
outlined the evolution of exchange
"With the founding of the first
joint stock companies for the purpose of floating legitimate business
enterprises, some method of trading
in stocks became absolutely necessary," stated Mr. Sprague. "Such
a situation led to the founding of
the London Stock Exchange more
than 150 years ago. The exchange
gave a service in.permitting investors to remove their funds from one
business and place them in another.
It informed investors of the market
value of their holdings and kept
money in circulation.
"The principles of trading have
not changed. With the tremendous growth and improvement in
methods of financing companies,
stock exchanges are today one of
the basic needs of our modern commercial life. Tbe operations of the
Vancouver Stock Exchange are
founded on a charter passed and
approved by the Provincial Government. Principals are fundamentally the same as those in force in
London, New York and other great
financial centres."
