Celts Win From Mine In
Last Minute Of
Putting out a kindly hand to
stop showers and breezes, and even
bidding the sun to shine for a while
the weatherman gave the footballers a break on Monday last, when
the Celts and Mine met in a League
fixture. It was not until the last
minute of play that the issue was
decided, when Freddy Williams
found the net from olose in, this
being the only counter iu the game.
It was one of the best .and fastest
tussles of the season.
The Mine, unable to Held their
regular team through shift-work,
were helped by volunteer players,
and put up a splendid game against
tbe organized Celts. The fine
work of Martin, in goal for the
Mine, was a feature- One save in
particular—a fast, high shot whioh
looked to be a certainty—brought
the fans to their feet.
ln the second half, the Celts
pressed hard but could not find the
net, until the last minute of play,
a shot from Williams striking the
top bar and giving the goalie no
chance to save. The game was
capably handled by Ernie Webster.
The teams: Mine, Martin; Calderoni, Patrick; James, Home,
Ferguson; Donaldson, Buchanan,
Hampson, Phillips, Schaefer.
Celts: Fitzsimmons; Currie, Rigby;
J. Gillies, Williams, Murray; J.
Bell, J. Buntain, Davies, Johnston,
L. Gillies.
Ladies of Golf Club Are
Very Active
Undaunted' by weather conditions,
the ladies of the Golf Club pursue
their fixed schedule of competitions
and tournaments, and are deriving
health and enjoyment out of the
game. On Tuesday the 4th. a
Bogey Competition was held, Miss
Frances Dresser winning the 9-hole
contest, while Mrs. Wenerstrom
and Mrs. Sheen tied over the
18 hole route.

Public Responded Generously on Rose Day
Always in sympathy with the
splendid cause for whioh Rose Day
is held, the publio of Anyox bought
freely of the Roses offered on Dominion Day. The collections were
almost equal to those of last year,
which is most gratifying. The
roses are all made by orippled ohildren in England, and the money
raised (with the exception of 2%
for payment of the roses) is used
for child welfare work for siok aud
crippled children.
Rose Day is perpetuated in honor
of Queen Alexandra, and a wonderful amount of work is done each
year with the funds raised throughout the Dominion. The committee
of the I. 0. D. E. extend hearty
thanks to the people of Anyox aud
distriot for their splendid response
to this appeal.

Annual Meeting of Alice
Arm School District
Held Saturday
The Annual Meeting of the Alice
Arm School district was held at the
School House on Saturday evening
last, when quite a number of ratepayers were present. O. Evindsen
was elected chairman.
The resignation of Miles Donald
as trustee, was read by the secretary, E. Moss.
Nominations for a trustee for a
three-year term, caused by the retirement of E. Moss, resulted in
W. Stephen being elected by acclamation.
Nominations for a trustee for a
one-year term, caused by the resignation of Miles Donald, resulted in
J. C. Studdy being elected by acclamation.
On nominations being called for
auditor, W. B. Bower was unanimously elected.
The reading of the Financial Report by the secretary for the past
year, showed a balance on hand at
the beginning of the year of
$204.78. Expenditures during the
year amounted to $825.90, leaving
a balance on hand at the end of the
year of $81.88.
Following the reading of the
estimates for the coming year it
was decided to fix the sum of
$700.00 for local assessment, this
being the same as last year.
A vote of thanks was tendered
the retiring trustees for the efficient
manner in which they had carried
out their duties.
The minutes of the meeting were
adopted as read.
The School Board now consists
of J. Graham, W. Stephen, J. C.
Studdy. At a meeting of the
Board held that same evening J.
Graham was elected chairman and
W. Stephen secretary for the ensuing year.
Meeting Tonight In The
Interest of Independent
A Public Meeting will be held
at Anyox this evening for the purpose of arranging for tbe nomination of an Independent candidate
at the forthcoming election. The
names of H. Rolston of Ste wait,
T.W. Falconer and E. Moss of
Alice Arm have been mentioned as
possible candidates. The latter,
however, after careful consideration, has deoided to withdraw his
name as he would not have sufficient time at his disposal to conduct
an energetic campaign suoh as is
needed to ensure success.
Rain Upsets Anyox Sport
Although footballers scorn a
little rain, and look upon mud with
contempt, the downpour last Thursday was a little too much even for
Anyox soccerites. Bathing suits
would have been more appropriate
than football togs. So under these
conditions the game scheduled be-
tween the Mine and Rangers was
cancelled. The fixture will be
picked up in the near future.
Similar conditions prevailed on
Friday, when the Colts and the
Cubs were to disport themselves
round the local diamond. The
players wisely sought shelter and
gave the depressing ball park a
wide berth. This fixture will be
played off at some future date.

Local Lake  Examined
By Fisheries Inspector
Is Satisfactory
Mr. Angus Mclvor, Inspector of
Fisheries in the Naas River district,
arrived in town on Tuesday, accompanied by J. Trinder. The
following day Mr. Molvor made a
trip to the lake on the plateau,,
east of the town to investigate its
suitability as a trout spawning
lake. He was'accompanied on tbe
trip by A. D. York. On his return
he stated that he found the lake
very suitable for the placing of
trout spawn, but owing to the lateness of the season and scarcity of
spawn it would not be done until
next year.
In regard to fishing conditions
on the Naas River this year, Mr.
Molvor stated that the fishing was
muoh better than had been expected. Last week the average catch
per boat was 40 sockeye and a high
boat of 105. The price paid the
fishermen is 40 cents per fish, but
he has to pay for rent of nets aud
Mr. Molvor is not a stranger to
Alioe Arm. His first visit here

Telegraph line was being constructed between Anyox and Terrace,

pioneers, a number of whom are
still living here.

Howe Sound Co. Is In
Strong Financial
From all sources covering the
North American continent news
dispatches state that business conditions are improving. More men
are continually being put to . work.
Higher prices for all commodities are being registered, and money
is more plentiful than a year ago.
Business is, however, a long way
behind normalcy, and we have not
yet left the depression period behind. A start towards better
times, however, have been made
and its ultimate success depends
entirely upon the co-operation of
the world's leading nations.
The United States have taken
the lead towards better times, but
it is being done by artificial methods. Time alone will show whether permanent results will be obtained, and the question at the present
time is doubtful.
Up to the present the World
Economic Conference has not attained any beneficial results. The
nations have failed to co-operate
one with another and mistrust
reigns in place of confidence.
Everyone apparently wishes to
benefit, and the end will be that if
this policy is continued no one will
benefit. If the conference dissolves
without any of the world's major
problems being solved, worse times
than have yet been are likely to
prevail. The world has evidently
not yet suffered enough to be repentant. A few more years of
suffering seems to be necessary, or
the possibility of a world revolution
threatened before the world's statesmen as a whole realize that concerted action must be taken.

Six political parties will have
candidates in the coming Provincial general election. They are:
the Tolmie Union Party, Bowser
Unionists, Liberals, Independents,
Labor, C. C. F. and perhaps a
seventh, the Municipal Party.
This is as great a conglomeration as
anyone has ever seen in any country at any time. Out of this
hodge-podge it is hoped that a
government will be formed. If
one party emerges from the conflict
with a clear majority over all other
parties it will be a miracle. If no
one gets a clear majority, then
other parties will have to be taken
in, perhaps one, perhaps two or
three and their demands will have
to be met, if a government is to be
formed. At the present time it
looks as though we will be in a
greater mess politically at the close
of the campaign than we were
before. The old two-party system

Howe Sound, one of the few
base metal companies to continue
dividend payments throughout the
period of low metal prices, has ex
perienced considerable improvement
in the second quarter of 1933. The
company is in strong position with
approximately $3,000,000 in cash
and securities at their market value
and with no funded debt. Dividends are being paid at the quarter
ly rate of 10c. per share.
Profitable operation in second
quarter of 1933 is expected to be
shown owing to an increase of 50
per cent, in shipments of lead and
higher prices for both lead and silver. In the first quarter the loss
after depreciation was $125,000.
A profit after depreciation and all
charges is anticipated in the second
quarter. Zinc output is being kept
at about the same rate as in the
first quarter but the company has
made a contract for the sale of its
zinc output for the rest of the year
at the present rate of production.
Increased shipments ot lead and
zinc are coming from stock piles
but the company plans to increase
mine output at the Potosi mine at
Chihuahua later in the year if metal
prices hold or move higher. At
present the mine is working three
days a week.
Copper output at Britannia is
between 10% and 15% of normal.

as the Britannia copper mine.

Governor-General Visits Boys' Farm
The annual closing exercises of the Boys' Farm
and Training School at Shawbridge, Que., were
made memorable for the 150 boys of the institution recently when they 'were honored by the presence of the Earl of Bessborough, Governor-General
of Canada, who addressed the school and gave out
the prizes. Accompanied by B. W. Beatty, K.C.,
chairman and president of the Canadian Pacific
Railway, who is also president of the Boys' School,
and a number of directors and wellwishers of the
institution, His Excellency was the object of a
great ovation by the boys on the arrival of the
special train at the Farm. This Is shown ln top
photograph of the lay-out. Lower left, the Governor-General is shown shaking hands with Major
Ralph Willcoclc, D.S.O., superintendent of the
School, and at the right His Excellency 1b acknowledging the plaudits of the boys from the steps of
the special train, j It was the first time in the
25 years' existence of the School that a Governor-
General of Canada had taken part in the closing
exercises of the institution. His Excellency, addressing the School, stressed character as being of
vital importance to success ln life..
Canoe Trips in Canada
Lakes and Rivers Provide Numerous Attractions
Opportunities for an Enjoyable Vacation Almost Unlimited
J HE requirements for a successful and satisfactory trip
bv canoe; suitable water,
picturesque oountry and an
gellent summer climate,
can be found almost any-
lgW» In Canada, The innumerable lakes and riven make the
choice of trips almost unlimited.
One can travel for hundreds of miles
on any of the great riven, journeying from lake to lake and portaging
when rapids impede or heights intervene.    Having  decided upon  tlie
kind of trip to be made, whether
one requiring much effort and experience, or one quite free from
rapids and portages, the canoeist has
only to select his route.
Easy of Access
Although railways and the automobile have provided a means of
rapid transport, there are countless
places in the quiet of the forest,
out of reach of either. It is such
places, approachable only by canoe,
that invite the adventurer' to partake of the wonders of nature. The
railways and the development of
good roads have however made the
majority of canoe routes in Canada
easily accessible, and one need not
travel far from the majority of
Canadian cities before reaching the
embarking point of an enjoyable
Forest Beauty
In certain parts one may follow
the streams for a long summer
outing and never see a village or
dwelling, yet civilization lies so
close that return is easily possible.
Waterfalls, rapids large and small,
lakes of singular beauty hidden
deep in the forest, and islands
covered with pine and spruce trees
an among the interesting features
encountered en route. In some
places one may travel hundreds of
miles without meeting obstacles of
any kind.
There is a remarkable contrast between the conventionality of modern
life and the full naturalness of life
in the great forest, where one may
relax, amid tbe beauty of natural
surroundings. A strange appeal of
imagination comes to one while following the routes of the historic
explorers and eonteatment prevails
amid the constant change of beautiful scenery.
Fish and Game in Abundance
Canadian lakes and riven an
renowned for the variety and
abundance of their fish. Brook and
lake trout are numerous, the latter
often weighing from fifteen to thirty
pounds while other species of fish
are plentiful Eastern Canada is
well provided with waterways, well
suited to travel by canoe. Canal
systems, riven large and small,
rapids, falls, lakes, stillwaten and
all the requirements for an enjoyable
canoe trip, await the devotee of the
paddle. Whether it be a cruise
through a well settled region, or an
adventurous journey through the
wilderness, die canoeist will find an
almost unlimited number of lakes
and streams.

in days gone by, assisted materially
in unveiling the mystery of the

(Ladysmith Chronicle)
Have you ever noticed the planks
of a political platform? Somehow,
ere they are brought into use they
have slipped off the platform, or, if
still there, are so rotten that they
are not of any value to the general
publio, and politicians dare not put
any weight upon them.
We notice that "planks in political platform" is the heading in
several dailies these days, henoe
our remarks anent same.
So far as we are able to judge,
looking baok over a period of
twenty-five years, the only use
that' political planks" have ever
been were to hold the party up
until the eleotion, and then, so
soon as the announcement was
made at the polls, the whole darned platform was shoved over, and
never once was it re-erected until
a few weeks previous to the next
provincial election. We fully expect to see the "No Patronage'1
plank produced again, with a host
of others of similar value—if you
are gullible to believe that old
stand-by you will swallow anything, hook, line and sinker.
