At the weekly meeting of the
Anyox Community League, held
on Wednesday, Maroh 15th, the

this alid several other matters.
- A decision was arrived at to hold
a referendum on April 8th, on the

during the coming season.
A letter was-read from Mr.
Frank M. Kelly advising the
Council of his acceptance of the
secretaryship and he will be ready
to report to the Council soon after
April 1.

[Development Work, on
Homestake Property
I Will be Done this Year
Word has been received in Alice
[ Arm that the Honiestake Mining
(Company of Vancouver will short
|>!y   commence  operations  at  the
[Homestake Mine, which is situated
at the  Kitsault. Glacier.     It  is
understood  that  $36,000 will be
[spent in development work by the
[ company this year.   A compressor
i and maoKinery is ready in Vancouver to be shipped to tfyt property
, and a season of active' development
work   has  been outlined by the
company.   Ore was oncountered in
the No. 1 tunnel last fall before
operations ceased.    An exceptionally early fall Of snow last fall put
an end to operations earlier than
was expeoted, but the work done
by the company last year showed
very satisfactory results and the
Homestake company are confidently expeoting  to  prove  up  some
large ore bodies during, the coming
year.
The March meeting of the Anyox
Parents and Teachers Association
was held in the new School on
Saturday last.    Regular businea when he reached . here and place
included   the   announcement   of ^before him their views and desires
' According to our exchanges,
spring is on the way. One paper
says "spring is limping in," another
has it that "spring is springing in,"
while another, has got the little
flirt "sitting in the lap of winter.
To judge from the weather of the
past week it looks as though the
old boy who packs the white
blanket has got a good sized kick

funds raised at the recent Dickens?:
Evening, which amounted to about
$110 clear.    This sum will fornr
the nucleus of a fund to be devoted
to school playground improvement.
* *     .' *■
An outstanding feature of the
meeting was an exceedingly able
address given by Mr. "W. Robertson, a member of the public school
staff, Mr. Robertson's remarks
were in the1 nature of suggestions
as to the functions of the Parents-
Teachers Association.      .
"Choosing an object for which
to work said the speaker, is of
prime importance. Let the child
be our object, and in striving for
the welfare of the child in school
and at play let us work in wholehearted co-operation to the interest
Of the object we have ohosen.
It was pointed out that organized
and supervised play in a playground adequately fitted for both
the older and younger pupils was,
the only sane and sitisfactory
solution to increased efficiency in
the school-room. By this method
of controlling surplus youthful
energy, questions of class room
discipline were modified and the
whole moral tone of a school was
raised. Beautifioation of school
interiors as well as the playground
tended toward a correlated aesthe-
tio development which formed an
essential quality in education noted
the speaker.
Such a thought*provoking talk
as Mr. Robertson gave is both
timely and appreciated as it tends
to arouse such associations as ours
from an apathy towards Our real,
function in the community, and

regarding the-present situation in
^the local schools;'
The Council at present is canvassing the town in order to obtain
the opinion of the j people of just
what form of building will meet
the greatest need of the town.
The suggestions so received will be
considered and probably a referendum will ''be taken to express a
definite opinion.
Mr. R Armour- was appointed
advisory delegate to the Granby
Polyteohnic.
A considerable portion of the
order for new books for the library
has been filled and the balance is
being received- in small lots direct
from the pnblishers....
The polioy of the present Council
will be to make all the League
activities, if1 not self supporting, at
least able to pay a small portion of
their own operating expenses.
The second game was. a very,
fast exhibition of basketball and of
a high grade. The Beach team
which has not yet been defeated,
played against an all star aggregation composed of Fitzpatrick, Lee,
Greenwell, Brown and Corckle. It
was a very ojose and interesting
game, but the score keeper was so
overcome .with excitement .that it
was not known what the
soore was.     ,
A ohallenge for a series of games
has: been sent to Prince Rupert,
but up to the present no reply has
been received.
Anyox can guarantee Prince
Rupert an interesting game should
the challenge be accepted.

Mineral Wealth
A greater interest is being taken
in the mining industry in the Dominion of Canada each year. The
Canadian Institute of Mining and
Metallurgy are doing a lot of good
for the advancement of the industry and it is hoped that they will
have all the co-operation and help
possible from the federal government and also from the different
provincial governments in the fostering of the chief industry of the
world, so that Canada can take
her place in the future as the
leading mineral producing country.
The history of the world shows
that since ancient times, nations
that had minerals within their
borders were the leading nations
of their time. Great Britain was
the first nation of modem times to
develeiprher mineral resources on a
large scale and the British Empire
was built up with the coal and
iron mines of Great Britain.
Those were the two minerals that
created the wealth of the country
and made it possible for her to
keep the flag flying in every
quarter of the globe. The past
power of Germany was built up in
forty years from the coal mines in
Westphalia and the iron mines in
Alsace-Lonaine, the two last
named provinces she wrested from
France at the close of the Franco-
Prussian war, simply for the mineral wealth they contained, and
Germany would be a great power
today if she had followed the paths
of peace and. not dreamed of
world conquest. The present
wealth of the United States is due
to a large extent to the varied
mineral wealth of the country, the
chief of which is coal, iron'and
copper.
Minerals are the wealth producer of any nation, and with them
there is no limit to its greatness.
It is estimated that there is one
thousand million tons of coal
reserves in Canada, this includes
all classes of coal and lignite; it is
yearly sixty per cent, greater than
tjie entire coal reserves of. Europe,
and is one sixth of the coal reserves
of the world. Vast reserves of
metals, have been proven up
throughout Canada. This country
started to develop her mineral
wealth about fifty years later than
the United States, and Canada' is
just beginning to realize the importance of her mineral wealth.
British Columbia is especially rich
in minerals of all descriptions and
the government should do everything possible for the expansion of
the industry. This district, is the
latest mineral zone to be developed
in the province. During the last
ten years the towns of Anyox,
Alice Arm and Stewart have come
into existence, and all are dependent upon mining. The whole district
is sadly in need of more roads and
trails and the government should
make a special effort to build tham
and also remove any obstacles that
is retarding the progress of any one
community. •
Money Available for B.
C. Mining Properties
That tl'ore is unlimited capital
available in-the United States for
the development of worthy British
Columbia enterprises when they
are well presented and backed up
by sufficient engineering qualifications is the opinion of Glenville A.
Collins, of Vancouver, who has
been in the east. on mining business. He found a pronounced'
interest in British Columbia mining
matters, owing to what Americana
declare are the splendid mining-
laws and reputation for ' clean
dealing, and the records of some of
the big producing mines of the
province. He said that unquest
ionably there is a big mining boom
to follow soon, and no one need fear
to go ahead with honest and merited development..
It is reported by recent arrivals
in Dawson that rich new silver
strikes have been made at Keno
Hill. /High grade veins have been
opened on the Croesus, Crystal
Gulch, Gambler Gulch, Slate Creek
and Stane claims. The Slate
Creek company are opening up a
vein five feet wide of steel galena,
ore at a depth of sixty-five feet.
The, Yukon Gold Company is
shipping 3000 tons of ore' this'
winter from vein No. 9 on the Rico
claim. On the Sadie claim the
Treadwell people have two shafts
down about 100 feet. Tread wells
have several million tons of ore
blocked out for removal from the
McQuest'Cenclop claims adjoining
It is expected that the population of Mayo Camp, which has
already half the population of the
Yukon Territory, will be more
than doubled this summer.
Anyox Parents-Teachers
Association Meeting
Continued from, page IV"
gives us an; impetus towards Our
chosen goal, namely, the promotion
of higher work and play interests
'for children in Any°x- ,,
He, remarked also thaft the
progress of pupils who, exhibited
differences in nature can only be
successfully attained by the underx
standing of those differences by the
teacher and parent. In the matter
of ' examinations -it was acknowledged that after all, in the lower
grades of school Work—as well as
it should bp in the higher grades—
it is the daily attitude and endeavour of pupils that is really the test
for promotion.
