Softball League Is Well
Under Way
If present interest in softball is
sustained throughout the season—
and there is no reason to think
otherwise—it will head the list of
popular sports in Anyox. The
schhdulc for the season shows
eight teams in the Beach League,
with a total of no less than fifty-six
games to be played! These are arranged so that four games are play-
each week, commencing May 21st.
and finishing August 25th.
The grounds are easy of access
to most of the players, and the
majority of the fans have no distance at all to travel, in fact many-
can view the games from their own
doorsteps.
Games are proceeding as per
schedule, the Millers winning from
the Waterfronts in the first clash,
the Roustabouts defeating the
Grinders in the second fixture, the
ex-Ruperts downing the Adanacs in
the third meeting and Bonanza
crumpling up the Foundry in the
fourth tilt.
Big Gold Ore Discovery
Made At Hastings
Arm
The biggest ore disoovery that
has been reoorded I in this district
for some time was made reoently
by James Flynn and Carl Ecklund
while prospecting at the head of
Hastings Arm, which lies between
Alice Arm and Anyox.
The ore carries gold, and samples
taken from the surface have assayed $6.90 per ton. The ore body
varies in width from 8 to 12 feet
and has been traced on the surface
for approximately one mile. It is
situated on tidewater, being ideally
located for cheap mining and shipping. It is located on the east
side of the head of Hastings Arm.
Ample water power suitable for
hydro-electrio purposes is located
on the property.  ]
Flynn and Ecklund have interested several Anyox people in the
property and have sufficient funds
on hand for development purposes
this summer. They are at present
uncovering the ore body and intend to put in opSinSnts at several:
places.
Should gold values be persistent
throughout the ore body, its immensity and easy access will quickly place it iu the limelight.
Gold ores have been known to
exist in the Hastings Arm district
for a long time. About two years
ago a pocket of extremely high
grade was found ou the west side,
and it is possible that others exist
in the neighborhood.
Several looal prospectors have
visited the district since the disoovery. During this week Gus.
Anderson, Pete Petersen, Jaok
Fiva and Oscar Flint of Alice Arm,
spent a few days there.
Dynamiters  Blow  Up
Elks In League Game
It was no sooial evening for the
j Elks when they entertained the
Dynamiters in the second game of
the League ou Friday 25th. as
when the smoke from the blasting
had cleared away, there were only
two hits to be seen and no runs.
The blasters managed 5 hits and
two runs. Cieslikowski made two
nice two-baggers for the hillmen,
and Smith contributed another
It was a fast moving game, the
Elks keeping down the score by
good work in the field.   The scores:
Men's Greensome Golf Tourney Attracts Many
On Thursday, May 24th. a Men's
Two-ball Greensome tournament
attracted a large number of competitors and some close scores were
recorded. D. Cavalier and R, O.
Cutler topped the-list with a gross
of 84. Their handicap was 22 and
their net was thus 62. Three
couples tied for second place; viz,
A. W. Gigot and D. McKenzie, C.
Cundill and J. McColl, G. M. Lee
and L. McKay. On the playott to
break this impasse the last named
pair won.
The continued fine weather, with
just sufficient rain to keep the
course in good shape, draws out a
large number of players.

Big Celebration Planned
For Dominion Day
Present indications are, that the
doings on Dominion Day this year,
will be the biggest for a long time.
All kinds of features are being
planned for the great celebration.
In the morning a parade will be
held, in which various local organizations as well as children will
take part. Ambitious plans are
already being discussed. This
early advance notice will give
everyone interested a chance to
think up something original and to
do some preliminary work. There
will be prizes for different
classifications and also for entries
in the parade by local bodies.
Morning events for Dominion
Day will centre around the Beach.
There will be bicyole races, juvenile
marathon raoes, comedy events,
such as boxing in barrels etc. Iu
the afternoon there will be field
sports of all kinds. Men's Open
Relay Raoe, Relay Raoe for Boys
under 16 and also for Cubs Sixes.
Teams for these important events
should organize at once and begin
to practice, as relay races are most
popular and always keenly contested. The Men's teams will not
necessarily be departmental, but
may be arranged as desired.

$10,000,000 Will Help
Pay Interest Charges
Premier T. D. Pattullo arrived
home recently from Ottawa with
the promise of a loan from the Federal Government of $10,000,000.
An unpleasant situation has been
averted and British Columbia will
be able to pay its creditors this
year, and have sufficient money on
hand to operate its various departments withont impairing them to
any great extent. When the money
will be paid and in what amounts is
not known. The province is paying a yearly interest of $11,663,086
on borrowed money, which means
that the whole loan will be swallowed up to help meet these payments.
It is an appalling total and ways
and means must be found to lower
this sum by refunding loans at a
much lower rate of interest, as our
borrowings are increasing each year
in order to provide money to pay
these huge interest charges.
Local Gold Discovery-
Is Encouraging
The discovery of gold ore at
Hastings Arm is good news for the
district, and should stimulate prospecting for this precious metal
which is now so eagerly sought for.
While present values are not exceptionally high, it often happens
that gold ores increase in value as
depth is gained. This is not the
first time gold ore has been found
in the Hastings Arm section, but it
is the first time that the owners
have interested capital in its development and its future success or
failure will be watched with interest. If success is attained, those
who are financially supporting the
project will realize handsome profits
and if a failure is recorded they
have had a run for their money.
Risks must be taken when developing a prospect. The quantity and
value of the ore lying in the ground
is one of nature's secrets. There is
just as good an opportunity of finding a large body of gold ore at
Hastings Arm as any other place in
the world. There is a mining
adage that "Gold is where you find
it."
African Copper May
Control Prices
Our news item last week regard-
the huge stocks of copper on hand
in the United States plainly shows
that business must tremendously
increase before these stocks are
brought down to normal. The production of the huge copper mines in
Africa in recent years have upset
world prices, and the centre of pro-
Monthly  Record   For
Canadian Copper
A new record was recorded in the
monthly output of Canadian copper
in March, when production amounted to 24,515,502 pounds, as compared with 21,708,287 pounds in
March, 1933, according to a report
by the Dominion Bureau of Statistics. Copper averaged 8 cents per
pound, and at this price the output
was worth $2,496,143 for the
month.
Nickel production in March
amounted to 10,436,852 pounds,
which was more than three times
the output of 3,279,230 pounds in
the corresponding month last year;
Production for the three months
ending March totalled 26,973,631
pounds, an increase of 218 per cent,
as compared with 17,050,230
pounds produced in the correspond
ing period last year.
Revenue of C. N.  Railways
Show Increase
The gross revenues of the all-
inclusive Canadian National Railways System for the week ending
May 14th., 1934, were $3,420,195,
as compared with $2,668,519 for
the corresponding period of 1933,
an increase of $751,676.
duction is being removed from
North America to Africa, and in the
future world prices will no doubt be
governed by the latter producers.
If African operators can produce
copper at 6, 7, or 8 cents a pound,
and show a substantial profit it is a
question if prices will ever rule
considerably higher. African companies have taken a large part of
the European copper trade from the
United States, and this has added
to the difficulties of American companies in disposing of their metal.
Be Careful With Fire
During The Dry Season
With this week's issue we enter
the month of June, with the long
days, and let us hope, sunny
weather. From now until the end
of August we will no doubt experience periods of hot dry weather.
During these periods it is the duty
of everyone to be extremely careful
in regard to causing fires. Especially at Anyox and in the vicinity
the ground is extremely dry and the
slightest spark from a match, cigarette, cigar or pipe ashes, may
cause a serious conflagation. It
has happened before as blackened
logs and stumps will show. Be
careful at all times, both around
town and when you are in the
woods. Be sure and extinquish
your picnic fires. Thoughtlessness
may cause untold suffering if a fire
got beyond control in the vicinity of
Anyox.

"Do you teach observation?"
"Yes."
"Then I will test the class. Now
children, shut your eyes and keep
still." The inspector made a slow,
chirping sort of noise and followed
with: Now, children, what did I

One little boy piped:

By Strawberry Flats and the Silver Daisy
1—rails about S mllea from Hope
t—On the trail
The little village ot Hope, situated on the Fraser River
about one hundred miles from the coast, is the
starting point for all mountaineers wishing to reach the
interior ot British Columbia by the trail route. It is a
scattered village of about two hundred inhabitants but
possessing both an abundance of natural beauty and
a truly romantic past. The village is flanked on one side
by the noble Fraser river, while trom the other side one
looks up three wide draws in the mountain ranges.
The one to the left is the beautiful Coquihalla valley
through which the turbulent Coquihalla river cascades
from a pass unmatched for rugged grandeur. Through
this pass too, under innumerable snow sheds and
tunnels the Kettle Valley Railway goes to Princeton
and the inteiS>r. In the centre is an opening for the
Nicolum river, to the right is the Silver Creek draw
and beyond It the snow-capped peaks of the Cascade
range.
The mountain trail over the Hope Pass is the old one
known as the Dewdney which was surveyed and partly
built for twenty-five miles out of Hope, by English
Sappers in 1861. It winds up the Coquihalla River for
a short distance, then branches off with the Nicolum. a
tributary of the former river. The way lies through
Sylvan glades, past rushing waterfalls and over rustic
bridges, the old dry "cribbing" of which Is as firm as the
day when It was laid.
The first feeding ground for horses is at 12 Mile Lake
—otherwise known as Divide Lake at an altitude of
2340 feet. This lake is the head waters of the Nicolum
river. Here there Is a beautiful hay meadow owned by a
trapper and prospector who is patiently awaiting the
day when the transprovincial road will give him a means
of transporting hi? wealth, ln the shape of hay, to outside
points.
At 22 Mile there Is another beautiful camping spot.
Here there is a large cabin situated in the forest's heart
on the very banks of the Skagit river. The owner of it
carries on prospecting and mining operations in the
vicinity. He appropriately calls his cabin "Defiance
Camp" and his mine "The Sliver Daisy."
'/rom here on for many miles the scenery becomes
mure wonderful, If that were possible, but at the same
time more wild and rugged. The Pass, a narrow hallway
bounded by cliffs thousands of feet high, is a sight of
never-ending marvel. At one spot, known as Skagit
\ ii ITs, the trail (a bare 18 inches wide) winds around the
i—The Summit
4—Defiance Gamp
shoulder of a cliff which towers above and drops away
a sheer one thousand feet to the bed of ths river below.
Then the trail once more drops down to the next
feeding grounds at Cayuse Flats which has a sister spot
three miles farther on—Cedar Flats. Beyond Cedar
Flats lies a long strip of heavy cedar timber, a true
"forest primeval." Strawberry Flats, a pleasant open
field on the Skagit river at a height of 8700 feet is tha last
stopping place before the actual ascent to the summit
begins. Here, in spite of the high altitude, wild strawberries grow in abundance.
In the next 2800 feet (of the perpendicular of course I)
one is led to the summit by a series of switchbacks sig-
zagging up the face of the mountain. Tha river, whioh st
the foot appeared a torrent, ts here a tiny stream,
a mere trickle over the stones. Below, tha ever-lasting
hills unroll themselves for a hundred miles of valley ana
When the summit itself is attained a sight never to bo
forgotten appears. A wide open meadow Ilea in an
inverted crown on the mountain top. Around Its edge
rise whitish cliffs scarcely distinguishable from the many
snow banks. And everywhere, even beside the snow,
grows a bewildering variety of wild flowers.
In the centre of the depression lie two lakes, the
dividing of the waters, tor trom the one goes the Skagit
river towards the sea and trom the other flows the Whip
Saw Creek towards the interior lakes.
As soon as the descent of the eastern slops Is begun
a great change is noticeable. The grade is easy and
steady, the country becomes more open and Is dear of
the under-brush and ferns so characteristic of the western
slope.
The last camp is twenty miles from Princeton but ths
last nine miles ot that distance are covered by s good
motor road, the beginning of the proposed Trsns-
provinclal-highway from Princeton to Hope.
About eight miles from Princeton Is a wonderfully
interesting spot where stratified rocks yielding excellent
fossils remains are located on the aide of the hill.
Shortly after this the valley opens out before one-
Princeton snuggled peacefully into a friendly drele of hills
and its two rivers, the Slmilkameen and Tulameen
keeping guard over It. Beyond It, rises a splendid vista
of rolling green foothills with more rugged mountains
closer in, indicative of the districts most flourishing
industries, ranching and mining.

Local Ball Park Now In Fine
Condition
Comment is freely made on the
fine condition of the local ball park,
and it certainly merits the praise of
those who use it. Stones have been
painstakingly removed from the
diamond and also from the outfield
as far as possible. A score keeper's
box has been constructed at a suitable height for greater ease in viewing the game. The improvements
are such that it is a r^al pleasure
for players and fans alike to be at

Inter-Town Baseball  Series
With Ketchikan
There is a possibility that there
will be a series of intertown baseball games with Ketchikan this
summer. The Community League
is iu touch with the Alaskan city,
and it has been suggested that
Anyox visit there on July 4th. and
return games be played at Anyox
in August. A selected team from
local first leaguers should give our
Alaskan rivals a lot to worry about
and the series should prove a big
attraction. Definite announcement
will be made as soon as arrangements are completed.
The strawberries are ripe in
Vancouver and in bloom at Alice
Arm, but looal people will be enjoying them when they are forgotten in the south.

This Man Is Not a Friend of
Silver
The plain truth is that "silver,"
so far as our politico-economic sit
uation is concerned, is a unique
combination of those things which
in the case of anything else would
have aroused a nation-wide uproar
of indignation. The thing is a
plain case of pure politics; the only
remarkable thing about it is the
skill with which the expectant beneficiaries have contrived both to
mobilize their forces and hoodwink
public opinion. One must respectfully salute their skill.—Thomas F.
Woodlock in Wall Street Journal.
