Scouts Busy Preparing
For Entertainment
The Cubs are now growing so
fast both numerically and individually, that mention has been made
of applying for the use of the Gym
for meetings for the summer months
as tlie Gym will be little used during this time.
The boys are working*keenly on
IIS /material for the big Scouters' Con-
ajjt to be held in aid of the Soout
inds, on May 18th.
(The Soouts are certainly prepar-
j the big surprises of the year in
ieir conoert.
The camp at Tlell is a big incen-
e and they are working their
uvrdest. The big thing to make it
"., real success is a whale of a turn
out and the boys are sure that
Anyox people will respond in the
/big way they always have done.
The Rovers too are doing their
part. Rover Dick Summers claims
his magic act will make Houdini
look like a piker aud the fellows
back that opinion unanimously.
There will be the Rovers display of
pyramids and—we don't know, it's
only a rumour, but we'll whisper
it—there might b?, there just might
be, another girl chorus like the one
that made the big hit at the Rover
concert last fall.
The whole Scout group is work-
on this program for the 18th. and,
well, you know Scouts don't do
things by halves.

Anyox P. T. A. Hold Their
Monthly Meeting
At the monthly meeting of the
Anyox Parent-Teachers' Association held in the Public School on
Monday evening, April 30th. a
most interesting paper was read
by Miss Youngs. This was entitled: "Mary Come Home Early,"
and, as implied, dealt with chronic
fatigue in children during the adolescent stage, and its treatment.
An interesting discussion followed.
Refreshments were served by
Mrs. D. P. Williams, Mrs. Alex
Dunn and Mrs. J. Carr. Visitors
are cordially invited to attend
these interesting and profitable

Football Slow To Start, But
Oh Boy! It's Coming
How about. a nice line-up of
twenty-two players, smartly uniformed, a ball on the centre line, a
referee ready to whistle and a crowd
of spectators on the grand stand to
watch the first soccer game of the
season? This will eventuate shortly
if the meeting on Monday next is
well attended and some enthusiasm
shown. The season promises to be
a good one—there are more followers of sport here than in recent
years—there are many soccer players in our midst and there are many
keen suppoters. Let's get our enthusiasm going and make a start.
May Take Out Compressors
From Dolly Varden Mine
J. A. Anderson of Anyox, who
recently returned from a visit to
Vancouver, arrived at Alice Arm
on Thursday. Mr. Anderson is
here to investigate the condition of
the Dolly Varden Railway. He
stated, that it was possible that
compressor plants at Camp 8 may
be taken out this summer, but nothing definite in this regard had
been deoided upon. Rumors were
rife at Alice Arm this week, that
all equipment at Camp 8 and also
all 3teel rails on the railway were
to be taken out, but Mr. Anderson
stated that no plans whatever had
been made regarding it,
The withdrawal of heavy equipment from Camp 8 will no doubt
depend upon the amount of money
required to repair the railway so
that it can be hauled safely out.
Baseballers Elect Their
Officers For Season
Anyox WiU Add Softball To

at the Alioe Arm Hotel.
Mr. Graham arrived last sveek
from Vancouver, to take charge of
A. MoGuire's ranch near the Illiance River. He is an experienced
agriculturist and is busy getting
the spring work started.
Walter Warner arrived from
RoRSWood, near Terrace on Wednesday. He used the short route
via the Government Telegraph
trail, dispensing with such things
as trains and steamships, and was
fit and fine when he arrived, although muoh snow was encounter'
ed in the high altitudes. Mr,
Warner is telegraph operator at
Rosswood and will relieve Mr. J.
C. Studdy here, who is taking two

operates a small ranch and trap
line down the inlet was a visitor
in town this week. He was aocompanied by Mr. Pearson.
J. Calvin, who owns mineral
claims in the Haystack mountain
seotion arrived in towii on Sunday
from Prince Rupert. Steamships,

trusty row boat, and reported a
very pleasant journey. He will
spend some time here developing
his mining properties

guson. Arrangements and plans
for the season were discussed and
a number of useful suggestions
made. It is probable that there
will be three teams in the League
this season. A start will be made
at once to put the ball park in
shape. It was suggested that the
score board be placed iu a better
position and that the names of tha
playing teams be more clearly
Ways and means of increasing
the attendance at games were gone
into and with this object in view a
general pepping up of the league
games is being planned.
It Wasn't Caddy Disporting
This Time
Mr. D. Deane Honored
By Anyox Friends
■Few people of Anyox oan claim
so long a record of residence in
the district as Mr. David Deane.
It was on April 30th. 1915. that
Mr. Deane first lauded in the mining
town and he has resided here ever
since. Mrs. Deane arrived in
Anyox five years later. They have
decided to retire after a long and
useful life.here. and left on Wednesday last for Vancouver, from
which point they will possibly
tour Vancouver Island.
On Monday last. April 30th.
which was the nineteenth anniversary of Mr. Deaue's arrival here,
his many friends and workmates
on the "smelter hill" presented him
with a solid leather club bag, in
token of their respect and esteem.
Mr. Chas. Cundill made the presentation and referred to Mr. Deane's
record of faithful and consistent
servioe. Mrs. Deane has also been
luncheoned and feted aud both
carry with them the best wishes of
a host of friends.
There are people who believe that
the now famous '"Caddy" will discover Anyox one day and pop up
in the vicinity. In fact about 2.30
p.m. on Sunday last some excitement was caused on the water-front
when something was noted splash
ing about near the boat float. Sev
eral suggestions were made, one
being that a gun be sought, or that
a boat hook might land the monster.
However, it turned out to be none
other than our worthy fire ohief
Joe Martin, who had evidently
gone in for his annual spring dip
without troubling to take off liis
garments. The usual stimulants
were applied.
Oddfellows and Rebekahs
Hold Church Parade
An impressive Church Parade
was held on Sunday last, when the
members of Askew Lodge, I.O.O.F.
and of the Anyox Rebekah Lodge
paraded to the Anglican Church
There was a full mustering of
members of both Lodges.
The Rev. A. Abraham took for
his text the words: ''Who is my
Neighbour?" and preaohed a most
appropriate sermon. The" ohurch
ohoir rendered the anthem: "God
so Loved the World."
Development Work Will Be
Done On Esperanza
Norman Fraser, accompanied by
T. Ferren arrived at Alice Arm on
Monday from Prinoe Rupert and
will spend the summer months doing development work at the Esperanza mine and the Alice property. Work at the Esperanza

Strong protests have been forwarded to the Federal Government,
not only by Canadian gold mining
companies, but also by Boards of
Trades and other organizations
whose districts will be adversely
affected by the new ten per cent.
tax on newly mined gold. The
general public does not extend any
sympathy towards the rich gold
mining companies, but everyone
does feel that the small -placer
miners, who eke out a bare living
should be exempt and also companies mining a very low grade of ore
and base metal companies should
be exempt from such a burdensome
tax. There is no doubt that now
this injustice of the tax has been
brought to the attention of the
government that the Act will be
modified considerably.
Premier Co. Takes Mine
In Nelson District
Announcement was made this
week that Premier Gold MiningCo.
Ltd. has taken a 52 per cent, interest in Relief-Arlington Mines Ltd.,
a producing gold property south of
Salmo in Nelson district, the deal
invftlving a substantial cash payment. Premier will take over
management at once. Dale L. Pitt
manager of Premier, states that the
deal has been confirmed by Premier
head office, New York. Operations
on a much larger scale are planned
if development of the main vein
proves up to expectations. The
present mill has been handling 40
tons daily. Control was purchased
from W. N. O'Neil & Co. Ltd. who
acquired 90 per cent, of the outstanding shares last summer. In
the first three months of 1934, the
company's production averaged
$20,250 per month. Output for the
quarter was 1,736 oz. gold from
2673 tons ore at the rate of $22.75
per ton.
There is no happiness like peace
of mind.
International Agreement
Necessary For Silver
Financial News, Vancouver
An international agreement for
the remonetization of silver at a
uniform ratio to gold is foreseen in
high official and diplomatic quarters of Washington.
There have been conferences in
the United States capital recently
aimed toward putting under way
international discussions on the
In one important quarter there
was said to be a close relationship
between the discussions and President Roosevelt's desire to avoid
mandatory silver legislation at this
session of Congress. Bills now
before Congress would require the
President to remonetize silver in the
United States, and this might make
an international agreement impossible.
The President already has power
to do most of the things suggested
'in the proposed legislation, and
specific Congressional commands
might limit the direction of international discussions.
The Government has recently
sent monetary experts to the Far
East, and financial observers have
visited other countries.
Experts have argued before that
world monetization of silver would
greatly help the monetary situation
and Professor George F. Warren,
an author of America's present gold
standard system, has said that addition of silver to the world's monetary base would tend to stabilize
world prices.
Unemployment Less In B. C.
And Throughout Canada
British Columbia experienced a
10 per cent, lightening of its  relief
rolls in March, compared with the
corresponding  month   last    year
Single men,  families and depend
ents on relief in March, 1933, num
bered 128,858.   This figure fell to
116,340 for March 1934, a decrease
of 12,518 persons.    Increased employment contributed to the reduction in  respect to those who had
been directly on relief.
An increase of 150,000 is shown,
in the number of persons employed
in Canada on April 1st. this year
as compared with a year ago, the
Dominion Bureau of Statistics reports.

Historic Wolfe's Cove Assumes New Aspect
The  scene  of the  landing   .
General Wolfe, under the towering crags crowned by the Plains of
Abraham and the City of Quebec,
ia about to become the setting for
yet another important event in the
history of Canada.   On September
13,  1759, the British forces disembarked at what is now known as
Wolfe's Cove, to capture Quebec.
On June 2, 1931, passengers from
the new 42,500-ton Canadian Pacific
liner "Empress of Britain", on her
maiden voyage from Southampton,
will land within a few yards
of   the   same
spot   and   be
taken by train,

over a mile
long, under the
historic battlefield on which
the English
hero  lost  his
life,  direct to

This new traffic link, which is being

of some $2,000,000, will eliminate

Beautiful Ontario Summer Camps Call
^Jnrivalled for its scenic splendors, the beauty of its lakes and
streams and their world-wide reputation as fishing-grounds,   Ontario
offers the holiday-seeker as fine
territory as any to be found on the
American Continent.    Bungalow-
campB bring practically virgin areas
within easy reach of the disciples
of Isaac Walton, with handy connections from Toronto and other
points by Canadian Pacific Railway
fines. These camps are a combination of the lure of the wilderness
with the comforts of civilization and
consist of individual "camps" or
sleeping-cottages,   centred   on   a
dining and recreation hall. Modern
furniture  and  conveniences  predominate, and thus the individual or
family seeking a country vacation
find golf, tennis, hiking, Bwimmine
sailing, canoeing, motor-boating and
dancing for their amusement, apart
from a wide variety of fishing, which
may be carried out, either in the
vicinity of the camps themselves, or
back in the hinterland, with competent guides, who also acts
servants.  On the main transcontinental line of the Canadian Pacific Railway, three
such camps are found in
the Province of Ontario.
At French  River, 215
miles north of Toronto,
within a stone's throw of
the railway station.there
is a well-found camp,
which offers muskel lunge
and great northern pike
to the fisherman.   At Nipigon, 22-hours run from
Toronto, trout, pike  and
pickerel  are  the   principal
offerings and at the  Devil'
Gap,   Kenora,  Lake  of  tr
1 Woods, Ontario, 126 miles east
of Winnipeg, the famous Canadian
i black bass offers sport such as
anglers dream of, but rarely get.
i All these camps combine the excellent features already referred to
and   are   visited   by   fishermen,
tourists and holidaying families from all quarters ot
the globe, each Bummer.   They have a thoroughly
enjoyable and thrilling holiday time and return
each season in ever increasing numbers. They are
; part of a great chain of such installation operated
i in connection with the railway, for the purpose
i of taking people "back to nature" and yet giving
them the same standards of accommodation ana
. service as are found elsewhere throughout its system.   The pictures show: (1) A scene at the

Good Profit Made At Flin
Flon Mine
Hudson Bay Mining and Smelting Company, Limited, operators of
the Flin Flon mine, Northern Manitoba, realized net profit for the
year 1933, amounting to $780,524,
after allowance for all costs, interest, depreciation and taxes. This
compared with a profit before depreciation, in 1932, of $1,398,141,

minor part of the lure of these camps there is the
attraction of trail riding on trained, sure-footed

Gold  Ore Goes To Great
Depth In World's Mines
Gold mines are in operation to a
depth of a mile and one-half below
the surface of the earth. The Village Deep, in South Africa, is down
7,600 feet, and continues to return
good profits. The St. John Del
Rey, in Brazil, which has been
operated by an English company
for over 100 years, has a shaft
down 7,600 feet. This is said to be
the world's deepest mine. Canada's
deepest mine is Kirkland, Ontario,
with a shaft down 5,500 feet. The
Pioneer, in Bridge River, is getting
down close to 2,000 feet, with longer veins horizontally, and richer ore.
Canadian mines are 20 degrees
cooler than those in Brazil, Africa
or India. The deeper they go, the
firmer are the walls of the tunnels.

learn the language and soon got
into difficulties with his pronunciation, especially with the group
comprising "through" "plough"
and "rough."

began to run and one newspaper
review was headed "Calvacade
Pronounced Success," the Frenchman went back home.
