I Armistice Day
Dance at Anyox
Armistice Day was oelebrated in
j Anyox in a manner that, will keep
I green the memory of that day ill
; 1918, when the last shot was fired
J in the most terrible war the world
| has ever experienced.
Starting on Friday, November
110th. with al Masquerade Ball, in
the Recreation Hall, where between
three and four hundred people
assembled, most of whom were in
fancy costume, some of whioh were
exceptionally good. All the colors
of the rainbow were represented,
and the Hall being decorated in
the colors of the Union Jack, made
the whole scene a beautiful spectacle
The music was of an unusually
high order was rendered by Messrs.
Liddel and Company's orchestra of
six pieces, augmented in several
pieces by Victor, the Italian accor-
dian artist, who fortunately for
Anyox happened to be in town
l^during this anniversary.
Everyone seemed to be enjoying
themselves to the limit, there, being
[something doing all the time.
There was no end of fun, fifty
clowns adding to the merriment,
1 and a figure representing a South
African aborigine, dressed up in
what he could gather of the ward
robe of some unfortunate missionary, namely the silk hat, boiled
shirt, with a collar and tie as a leg
decoration. This character was
cleverly carried out by W
Overand.
Prizes were awarded for costumes
the winners being; Most Original-
Lady, Miss R. Champion ,(ear of
corn.) Gentleman, J. Gibbs, (Kal-
ipha of Bagdad.)
Comio: Lady, Mrs. H. Jones,
(Country Girl.) Gentleman, H.
Braithwaite, (Hobo.)
Best Sustained Character, Lady,
Mrs. E. Swanson, (simple maiden
with a longing to be a movie star.)
Gentleman,   J.   Foxiey,  (Player'
oigarettees advertisement.)
Special Prize, Miss "Dick" Has
lett
Other costumes well deserving
of mention as appropriate to the
occasion, were: Miss E. Russ, as a
"Poppy." Mrs. W. P. Eve, "Flags
of the Allies." N. Ballion, "Union
Jack."
Other good oostumes were: Mrs.
A. Crone, "Junk Shop." Mrs. A
Roberts, "Picture Show." Mrs. J.
Weir, "Carmen." Mrs. P. Barr,
"oopper hued belle of the Orient."
Pat Barr, "Cavalier." Mr. Gibb,
senr., "Pasha," and many others,
but lack of space prohibits their
mention. After unmasking,
dainty supper was served by the
committee of ladies, Mesdames Eve,
Kinrade, Morning, Weir, and
Moffatt. Messrs. Ployart, Crerar,
and Morton, in the.uniform of the
72nd. Highlands were the M. O's.
Alice Arm Holds
Weekly Debate
The weekly debate of the Alice
Arm Debating Society, was held
on Tuesday evening, at the-Colis-
eum. A large number of people
were present, and a very enjoyable
evening was spent  by  everyone.
The subject for the evening was:
"Resolved that Country Life is
better than City Life." Speakers
on Country Life, were: Mrs R. P.
McGinnis, Mr. M. D. Ross, Mr. J.
M. Morrison. City Life: Miss B.
Crawford, Mr. H. Fowler, Mr. T.
W. Falconer.
- J. M. Morrison opened the debate with a forceful address, in
which he said that city people
always went to the country to regain health. Farming was an up
to-date profession, aud that automobiles had revolutionized country
life.
H. Fowler was the>next speaker.
He said that it was the oity that
produced the leading men of any
country, aiid that no one
could advance very far in the
country. The farmers were dependent on city factories and could,
not get/along without them.
Mrs. R. F. MoGinnis then came
to the defence of the countrymen.
She said the parks in cities
were made so that people
could get a glympse of
country life. Life was always in
danger in the city. That rich
people do not live in the city, but
have fine homes in the country.
Miss B., Crawford followed, and
she said that in the city everyone
obtained more conveniences, and
did not have to work so hard.
That school children received a
better education, and city life was
much preferable.
M. D. Ross was of the opinion
that the speakers were not up-
to-date regarding their remarks.
All modern conveniences can be
obtained in the country. Country
people benefit more from sports,
because everyone can take part.
In the country everyone was prosperous, and there were no slums.
T. W. Falconer, who was the
last speaker for the city dudes, said:
everyone must go to the city to
get a first-class education, The
population of every country is
drifting towards the cities, i In
criticizing, he said that the city
bread lines were oomposed of men
who had worked in oountry.
J. M. Morrison then spoke for
five minutes in a rebuttal, in which
he extensively criticized remarks of
his opponents, and thus ended a
very interesting debate.
On a vote being taken, the
speakers for Country Life were
declared the winners, the vote
being: Country Life 20, City
Life 13.
The speakers comprised the No.
1 team, and it was their second
appearance upon   the   platform.
Anyox Parent-Teacher
Association Meeting
The November meeting of the
Anyox Parent-Teacher Association
was held last Tuesday evening, in
the New Sohool. . Inclement
weather was responsible probably
for a smaller attendance than
usual.
During the business session, Miss
Leitch reported progress being
made in the preparations for the
School Concert, to be held in the
Reoreation Hall, on the evening of
December 15th. The Library
Committee, through Mr. Manzer,
reported taking advantage of the
government grant to supplement
money voted already by the P.T.A.
for the purchase of ne«r books for
the School Library. This brings
tlieamount to be expended to $150,
Information as to the value of a
projection lantern as a practical
investment for the school was submitted to those present through
the medium of letters received from
outside points, where such machines
are already in use, The principal
aud vice-principal were appointed
a committee to enquire into the
cost of a lantern suitable for use
here.
Newspaper reports of the Parent-
Teacher Federation of Vancouver,
and of local P. T. A. organizations
in pther parts of the province,
were read by Mrs. Dwyer, Rev. J.
B. Gibson, and Mr. Macknight.
Such topics as the standardization
of the National Anthem, Homework Assignments in schools, aims
in P. T. A. work, etc. were touched
upon, and interesting discussions
followed.
Very pleasing vocal Solos were
rendered during the evening, by
Mrs. E. Morning and Rev. J.
Herdman. Miss B. A. Leitch and
Mrs. O'Neil acted as accompanists.
Tea was' served as usual at the
close of the meeting and a pleasant
informal half hour was enjoyed by
all.
The December meeting has been
called off. because of conoert .work,
and the next regular meeting will
be held the second Tuesday evening in January.

corner of Telegraph Road and First
Avenue, was commenced this week
by C. P. Riel. The building will

throughout the winter, so that it
will be ready for use next| spring.

improvement in delivering their
addresses, whioh augurs well for
the future of the Sooiety.

Alice Arm Observe
Armistice Day
Armistice Day, on Saturday last,
was fittingly celebrated at Alice
Arm. An 11 o'clock the reveille
was sounded by E. R. Oatman,
and everyone Ceased their labors
for the space of two minutes, when
the Last Post was sounded, which
signified that the respects of the
population had been paid to the
gallant dead.
Poppies were on sale at an early
hour, and as only a limited number
could be obtained they were soon
sold out. Miss Alice Hogburg and
Lome Falconer, who sold the
poppies, realized the sum of $21.00,
which was forwarded to Anyox.
In the evening, all the returned
men of the town were entertained
to a banquet by Mr. and Mrs. Geo.
Young. As a token of respect to
their departed comrades-in-arms a
one minute silence was observed
everyone standing to attention,
after which a toast was drunk to
The King. An excellent dinner
was then served to which the vet'
erans did full justice. Songs were
rendered by various members of
the company, Tommy Black's wMy
songs being especially appreciated.
War yarns full of tragedy and
comedy went the rounds, as each
one related his particular experiences, and the merry party broke
up at midnight with the whole
company lustily singing God Save
The King.
Esperanza Mine Ships
Over 200 Tons Ore
On Tuesday, about 225, tons of

held at the Coliseum, by the Alice

consist of a whist or five-hundred
drive, and to provide against
breaking up the debating schedule
it is proposed to hold a short debate
previous to the card party. The
subject will be: "Resolved that
man will do more for woman than
he will for gold." Each speaker
will be limited to five minutes, and
it promises to be a snappy affair.

The Alice Arm Freighting Co.
has secured a contract for getting
out a quantity of mining timbers

Weekly Meeting of
Anyox Community
League Council
The regular weekly meeting of
the Community League Council,
was held in the Rest Room, on
Wednesday evening. November
15th. Present: President Ferguson, Secretary-Treasurer Lowry,
Councillors Rowley, Armour, Seidelman, Murdoch and Noel.
On the reading of the minutes of
thepreceding meeting, Mr. Armour
took exception to their adoption
because of the manner of Mr.
McTaggart's election to the1 Counoil, Although the election had
been according to the by-laws and
the constitution of the League as
set down in the book, these had
been amended so that the unanimous vote of the Council could
set aside the constitution. Mr.
Lowry asked if at any ordinary
meeting at any time the Council
could alter the constitution. Mr.
Armour said that was just. what
the amendment meant. The secretary then pointed out that such
an amendment was unconstitutional in itself, that a constitution
was for no other purpose than to
prevent just such a state of affairs
from occurring. If a quorum,
which in the case of the League
meetings was four, could at any
time by unanimous vote alter the
constitution to suit themselves,
the constitution would not be
worth the paper it was written on.
The Chair held that if there had
been any amendments to the constitution, duly authorized at the
annnal meetings and through the
proper legal notice having been
given of such amendments, these
should be embodied in tne constitution. This was the majority
opinion of the meeting, and the
secretary was asked to search, the
minutes. It was then moved by
Mr. Murdooh aud seconded by Mr.
Rowley that the minutes be adopted as read.   This was carried.
The secretary's report dealt with
a request from several members of
the League who were anxious to
start a Skating Club. The Chairman of the Rink Committee, Mr.
Rowley, thought that an arrangement could be made for the initial
expense to be borne by the League,
the Skating Club to get sufficient
members to guarantee the cost
after the rink was established and
ice made. This could be done by
those wishing to join the Club
agreeing to the deduction of a
stated_J*mount from their pay
cheques, this to be nominal and not
to exceed five dollars for the
season's ticket.
In connection with the meeting
of the Finance Committee several
days ago. the Seoretary reported
that some discussion had taken
place regarding the Soft Drink
Stand in the Reoreation Hall.

Future of Mining Industry in British Columbia
Following is part of an editorial
published in Mining Truth, of
Spokane, Nov. 3, and is certainly refreshing reading for those
who obtain their livelihood from
mining and are anxious regarding
the future of the industry of the
province.
"To the old-timer of British Columbia mining districts, from coast
line to Selkirks, the present noticeable transition from pessinism and
inactivity to optimism and bustling
activity is extremely gratifying.
While the extent of actual operations still leaves something to be
desired there has been a very pronounced improvement in sentiment
among individual operators, a recreation of the old determination
to get out and do something,
instead of the erstwhile Micawber-
like attitude of waiting for something to turn up. In mining development things do not turn up; they
afe made to come to pass, the
miner has been down in the dumps
but his present optimism proves
that his spirit cannot be completely
broken' Goodness knows, our
friends of the north have had
enough to contend with in recent
years, but they have come through
the acid test with credit to themselves and with promise for the
future of the industry."
The present movement in the
province is not confined to one or
two localities. The record of the
great Premier Mine, in the Portland Canal district which will
return to its stockholders over
three million dollars in dividends
this year, has re-directed noticeable
attention to coast districts, with the
result that much new development
is under way and prespectors are
once more abroad over a wide
territory, offering wonderful possibilities. The Kamloops district is
showing more activity than for
several years past; the Slocan is
taking on its old aspect of prosperity; several deals are under way
in East Kootenay, and the area of
which Nelson is the center is
coming in for a good share
of public attention. The most reassuring feature,of the situation is
that big capital is again on the
lookout for   promising   prospects
and has many accomplished scouts
in the field. Several important
transfers of productive properties
are practically completed and it is
certain that announcements in the
immediate future will add to the
fame of British Columbia as a
locale for profitable investment in
mines."
British Columbia unquestionably
has the resources and it is beginning to profit from sane, consistent
publicity. Its laws are the best in
the world and it enjoys the paternalistic and enthusiastic aid of a
minister of mines who understands
the importance of his position."
In conclusion the editorial says:
"We have recently tested lor
ourselves the contagious spirit of
optimism sweeping the Dominion
from Pacific to Atlantic, and
unhesitatingly make the prediction
that the next great world-wide
mining movement will be north of
the forty-ninth parallel, with honors
evenly divided between British
Columbia and Ontario. The
former will have the aidge, owing
to the diversified nature of its
mineral resources."
Ex-Service Men of
Anyox Hold Banquet
The second annual Re-union
Dinner of the Anyox Service
Association, was held in the Mine
Mess House, on Monday evening,
when 160 returned men sat down
to a sumptuous dinner, that reflected great credit on the management
of the Mine Mess. Among those
present were three Red Cross
nurses, Miss Greening, Miss Stewart, and Miss Winters. Two
complimentary guests were also
present, Messrs. J. Haslett, and
F. Wilkins, eaoh of whom lost a
son' in the war. Dr. D. R,
Learoyd fulfilled his duties as
Chairman in his usual capable
manner, and kept thing* moving
at a lively clip throughout the
evening.
A large and varied programme
was carried out, which was as
follows:
Remarks by Chairman, Dr. D.
Learoyd, who toasted "The King."
Selection by Anyox Brass Band
consisting of 14'pieces.
Toasts, "Canada" by Al. Ployart,
"Fallen Heroes," Rev. J. Herdman
Song, "The Rose of no man's
land," Ed. Blundell. Encore, "Dear
little Boy of mine."
Toast, "The Ladies," by Chairman, which was replied to by Miss
Stewart.
Song, "Shipmate of Mine," Max
Morrow.   Encore, "Memories."
Bagpipe Selection, by Piper J.
Dewar, who had to respond with
an encore.
Reoitation, "Habitant parody on
Alice Arm," F. D. Rice.
Remarks by J. W. Esplin.

McGee," F. Archer.        ' '
Song, "Oh Pal, why don't you
answer me,?" W. MaoKenzie.
Song. "Let the rest of the world
go by," Ed. Blundell.
'    God Save The King
The Copper Market
Latest reports regardng the
copper market, state that the
metal is quiet, with European
buying still at an unsatisfactory
level. Price has slipped under 14
cents and seems inolined to remain
there indefinitely, the weakness
being caused by uncertainty in
European markets. Domestic consumers are meanwhile buying from
hand to mouth and can not be
stampeded into stocking up more
than one month or so aheacL
Statistical position seems to be
fair, but goods remain On the
shelves. ' .Better foreign buying is
looked for after the election in
Great Britain. Meanwhile Germany, France, Great Britain and
Italy are about the only buyers,
and in negligible quantities.

Proposed Railway
for Salmon River
G. A. Carlson, of the contracting
firm of Siems & Carlson, who have
been building railroads in the United
States and Canada for the past
quarter of a century, arrived Sunday
morning, and yesterday made a trip
with Chas. F. Caldwell up the Salmon
valley as fur as Thirteen-mile, to look
into the feasibility of building a rail:
road in this section. Mr. Caldwell
and Mr. Carlson haVe been friends
since- the pioneer days of Slocan
country, and it was through Mr.
Caldwell's influence that the railroad
builder came here. The former as is
well known, has had a permit for two
years or more for building a railroad
up the Salmon river, and has steadily
, worked on the promotion of the project, with confidence that if tonnage to
support a x'ailrood is not actnally in
sight, developements to date gave
almost practical assurance that it
will be forthcoming by the time the
| track can be laid.—Hyder Alaska
Miner.'

American Boy Shipping Ore
After being dormant for 15 years,
the American Boy mine at Sandon
is yielding ore of a grade which
gave it popularity in the early
days of the region. The last
sample taken from a winze 800
feet from the surface, contained
115 ounoes of silver to the ton, 74
per cent, lead and 3j per cent. zinc.
These values are contained in a
body two feet wide that lies in a
vein three feet wide.
Up to 1906 when operations
were suspended ore valued at
$200,000 had been shipped from
the mine.
Cascade Property Bonded
Near Smithers
A mining deal was put through
last week, when Mark E. LeBlanc,
of Seattle, and his partner, Alex.
S. Miller, of Smithers, granted an
option on the Cascade group of
claims to A. IV Harrer, of Pynn-'
sylvania, for the sum nf f 75,000.
The property is situated four
miles from Smithers, on the
Hudson Bay mountain, which is
receiving much attention just now
in the mining world.
The Yukon Gold Co. at Mayo Camp
has shipped 3,500 tons of high-grade
ore this season, and is now preparing
for a greater shipment next season.
Wise in Their Old Age.
King Solomon and King David
In youth led wayward lives,
Each had a few affinities,
Besides their numerous wives.
But when old age came rolling on,
With all its aches and qualms,
King Solomon wrote the Proverbs,
And David wrote the Psalms.

Anyox Community
League Meeting
Continued from page 1.
It was thought that if this were
made more attractive more
business would be the .outcome.
The suggestion was made that the
Ways and Means Committee
should meet Mr. Selfe and consider
the advisability of changing the
front of the Eecreation Hall, so
that it might have a stronger
appeal to the members of the
community. Some discussion resulted, and the Council decided to
leave the matter in the hands of
the Committees mentioned.
Mr. Armour took occasion to
compliment the Chairman of the
Recreation Hall House Committee
on the success of the Billiard Tour-
i nament, and hoped that the good
work would continue.
For those interested in cards and
card tournaments, it had been decided by the committee, consisting
of C. J. Lowry, F. Noel and H.
Seidelman, to call a meeting for
the purpose of organizing a card
club. This meeting will be held in
the Rest Room, on Thursday, November 23rd, at 7.30 p.m.
Poppy Day in Anyox
Anyox responded to the Armistice Day Poppy Sale in the usual
generous manner.
The ladies doing the collecting
were out at an early hour, and the
seven hundred poppies were not
sufficient to supply the demand,
they being all sold out by noon.
The ladies who kindly assisted the
Service Association in selling the
poppies at the mine, were: Mrs. J.
Haslett and Mrs. Jenkinson; at the
Beach, Misses R. Moffatt. "Dick"
Haslett, B. Clay, G. Green, R. McDonald, V. and K. Eve.
The total amount collected was
$144.00.
Consistent advertising gets the
business.
