[Successful Moose
Meeting at Anyox
On Monday evening, at the Reo-J
Ireation Hall, a meeting was held
j under the auspices of the Loyal
'Order of Moose.
The chair was ably taken by Mr.
i J, G. Ellis, supported by the Rev.
I J. B. Gibson, the Rev. J. Herdman
' and Mr. Stanley  Spragg.     Mr.
Ellis in introducing the supervisor
i of the order, Mr. W. P. H. Thorap
! son, briefly outlined the advantages
of  Moosedoin.     Mr.  W.   F. H.
^Thompson the Supervisor explained
to the meeting in detail the various
works       the      Moose      Order
have  in  hand,    their ; activities
at Mooseheart and Moose Haven,
and the many sooial and fraternal
advantages one could derive from
being a Moose.   At the close of his
very able and interesting   addi
he  called   for   new   members to
enroll.     There   was  a  splendid
response, over a dozen new, members   signing,  up.     The charter
: members are now, nearly complete
and there is no doubt that the "New
Moose Lodge" will soon become a
reality in Anyox.    The Rev.   J.
Herdman in supporting Mr. Thompson referred to the noble aims of
the Offer, and said he  thought
that any Order with tenets like the
"Moose" should havejsupport.
.'; During the evening the Anyox
Brass Band played several appropriate marches with great gusto,
and their efforts oertainly did much
, to make the evening the sucoess it
undoubtedly was.   Bandmaster J.
Dance Held at Alice
Arm Hotel a Success
A delightful dance was held at
the Alice-Arm Hotel last Saturday
evening, when even a larger orowd
the preoeding week was in attendance. A goodly number of Anyox
visitors were present, and also a
number from the various adjacent
camps were there to join in the
merriment. The orohestra, who
surpassed themselves with the
quality of music, were composed of
Messrs. E. R, Oatman, cornet; C.
Hutchinson, clarinet, and C. Wiok-
strom, aocordian.
While no'. refreshments were
served, lemonade of various hues
was on hand for the thirsty one's,
whioh included everyone. It is
proposed, that providing the
attendance to the dances maintain
the present standard to hold a
dance every Saturday evening.
Great credit is due to Mr. M, D.
Ross as organizer, as' it was chiefly
through his efforts that the dances
of the past two weeks -were made

Anyox Tennis Popular
The interest in tennis is still unabated, chiefly owing to the tournament now in progress for the
""Men's Open Single Championship
of Anyox. With the exception of
one game the second round has
been played off and still no surprises have ocourred, the winners
living up to their reputations; In
the third round the following players will meet* H. Ballion vs. F.
Gordon, G.Lee vs.-winner of W.
Miller and J. D. Lewis, D. Cole
Junr. vs.0. G. Mclntyre, and F.
Brown.vs. F.C. Townshend. This
round is undoubtedly the most
interesting df the Tournament.
There is a glorious uncertainty in
tennis as there is in other games
and this tnird round may furnish
the surprise that is usually found
in all tennis tournaments,
It is unfortunate that a tournament of this kind could not have
been arranged for the Ladies, but
owing to the scarcity of competitors it was decided not to attempt
•it.        •
Players on the ladies events are
again reminded to play as many
games as possible before the end of
the season.

ton up the 5 per cent, grade at the

out during the week have given
entire satisfaction.
Elks & Mine Ball Teams
In Play-off Series
On Tuesday, August 21st. the
Elks met the Mine in what proved
to'betlw last game of the regular
series. Had the Elks; lost this game
they would have had to play the
Mine once again but. their win on
Tuesday eliminated the Smelter,
who had become a serions contender
for the playoff.
The game was featured by some
fine fielding on both sides and in
the first inning after Greenwell got
on base on a hit, and Mclntyre, the
next man up, got a ticket, on first
through an error Draudson won
his own game by a well placed two
base hit bringing two runs in but
was put out at third, trying to
stretch the hit for three bases. The
Mine made one in the second when
Halverson came home on Pynn's
In the "third inning, the Elks
scored again, . Archie Campbell
coming home when Molntyre's hit
was not fielded perfectly. vIn the
4th inning the Mine crept up another notch wheti, Stewart scored
after Mealey hitftp Greenwell who
was unable to catch the runner at
the plate. f"£
That was the end of the scoring,
but the Mine looked dangerous at
any moment and" were
from a fth. inning rally when
Campbell made a spectacular one
hand running catch of Cecil Ferguson's hard hit fly. Corkle got on
the final half but was forced at
second for the final out when
Stewart hit-to Greenwell.
The showing of these two teams
who now go in for the playoft
shows that the next two or three
weeks Anyox will witness the most
thrilling games of the baseball
season and it is said that each team
is picked to win.

Why We Don't
Print It.
The Trail News has the repu
tation of being a booster, and it
has always been the aim of the
publisher to boost every enterprise
be it of public or of private nature,
of a worthy character. Boosting
is a game, however, that more than
one can play. "I boost you, you
boost me," is a good motto. The
newspaper man can boost in avefy
effective way, even by not "'knocking" when people want him to
"knock." He can boost a good
deal more by coming out flat footed and upholding the good that is
in an individual or an institution
and leaving unsaid what he knows
to be bad. But when this is done
there is no occasion for the person
or institution which is boosted to
assume that the newspaper has to
do it in order to hold its job with
the public, as that is indeed a serious mistake. A newspaper man
sees and hears more things, bad or
good, about individuals and about
the way institutions are conducted
than other individuals, a gossiping
old maid not excepted, and it is
unfair to assume that it is because
he does not know that
he does not print it. It is
because he has a sense of honor
and a sense of feeling, and last but
not least, a love of peace and harmony in the community. Many
things may be printed about our
town which would make spicy
reading, but why herald such things
abroad? The least said, the better.
The newspaper man, however, has
a keen sense of appreciation and
is susceptible to praise of the right
sort, and to substantial business
support. He appreciates the spirit
of the man who, when he has a few
dollars' worth of job printing does
not go galavanting about the country
spending car fare and time thinking
he might get it a few cents cheaper,
but who says, "We've got a printer
here at home who is trying to help
our town, aiid we will in tum help
him by giving him the little printing
we have to do." This is the true
community spirit, and it counts with
the merchant, with the doctor,
with the lawyer and with every
business which draws its daily
support from a community—The
Trail News.

Special to the Herald
Export and domestic sales of copper
for the last few days have been slow.
European countries have been buying
in very small volume since Thursday,
Prance being the largest buyer for
some time, with Germany taking a
fair tonnage. Orient continues active
in inquiries, but does little buying.,
Domestic buying has been more reluctant than ever during last few days
about making commitments.
Custom smelters are offering copper
at 14.50 cents a pound, while producers
continue to hold for 14 5-8 cents. In
the outside market, copper is available
at 14 3-8 cents, and it is probable that
business in volume would' result in
cutting the price to 141-2 cents. The
market's dec:ledly nominal. As sales
for some time have been in small
volume, and production has not decreased, stocks of copper have substantially increased. Consumers show no
inclination to come into the market
except to keep in touch with prices.
London—American copper syi. dicate
is preparing to invest $8,000,000 in
Grong ore mines in Norway, according to Christiana reports. Syndicate
is represented by Oappelin Smith and
H. J. Norse, both technical men, who
are now examining the property.
Another $1,000,000 will be invested in
railroad from the mines to Namsos,
London—Johannesberg is excited

maganese about six miles from Hek-
poort in the Krugersdorp district, a
hillside assaying 00 per cent, pure ore.
Dome Mines, Ltd. gold production
in July, was valued at $425,547, compared with $421,770 in June, and $355,

was valued at $335,254.
Government Will Combat
Determined to cut the ravages of
tuberculosis to a minimum, the government has appointed Dr. A. S. Lamb,
travelling health officer for the province, his time to be devoted almost
entirely to educational work on the

British Columbia visiting the smaller

Vancouver, Aug. 21st.—A number

ing the departure of two sprightly
young women who thrived here for
several weeks selling subscriptions for
an obscure American magazine. They
yielded up a touching story of then-
endeavoring to "work their way
through college", despite the fact that
both were palpably sophisticated and
passe. The young women made a
number of visits and raised "loans" on
a pathetic hard luck story. Reports
from Victoria state that they paid a
similiar visitation to that city.

Indian Mines Reorganized
The Indian Mines Company have
recently reorganized, and will be
known in future as the Indian Mines
Incorporation Ltd., with an increase
in capitalization to $3,000,000. This
will give the company a large development fund, and at the same time
provides for the present shareholders,
who will receive three shares for every
two they held in the old company.
Two reasons have induced the management to take this action. One is
that in order to comply With the rules
governing the London Stock Exchange
a company must have its stock fully
paid up before it can be traded in.
The other is that by such reorganization the company will have a large
block of treasury stock that will furnish ample working capital for complete development of the mine and for
the construction ot a mill, tramways
and other facilities for the extraction,
treatment and shipment of ore.

Bear River Bridge to Be
Completed -;
Work on the Bear river bridge is
progressing satisfactorily. A temporary span, made necessary, by the high
water taking out a part of the old
structure. Elstrom and company
have finished their contract for the
rock fill, in which there has altogether
been put about 11,500 yards i of rpek,
dumped in two lines, one on either
side of the old bridge. The space
in between will be filled with gravel,
it being estimated that about 8000
yards of gravel will be required for
this purpose. Slush scrapers have
been ordered for use in borrowing
gravel from the river bed, and will be
hauled by cable from tbe pile driver.
P. McMaster, government bridge
foreman, is expected to arrive, from
the south shortly to take charge of i<he
construction of the two 150-ft. Howe
Truss spans that are to bridge the
river. It is expected that this work
will commence about the first of September, making necessary the closing
of the bridge to horse traffic about the
15th. of that month, until about the
1st. of November. A great quantity pf
timber and iron fittings is now on the
ground, and everything possible will
e done to rush the work, so that up-
valley traffic will not be held up longer
than is absolutely necessary.
