Alice Arm Wins
Hockey Game 10-2
The fourth hookey game to be
played between the Anyox Mine
Club and Alice Arm teams was
played, last Sunday afternoon at
the Alioe Arm Arena before a large
crowd of fans. The ioe was heavy
due to the recent soft weather, and
both teams found the going hard,
but the game was very interesting
and the Alioe Arm stiok handlers
oame out winners with a score of
10-2.
The game started with a surprise for every one. From the f aoe-
otT, Oatman carried the puck to the-
Anyox goal and scored in about 10 j
seconds from the commencement of
play. Four more goals were scored
by Ali°e Arm during the first
period, making a total of five, while
the visitors were unable to find the
liet.
In the second period Alice Arm
scored 4 goals and Anyox' found
i the net twice.    The score at the
end.of the period being Alice Arm
9, Anyox 2.
One lone goal was scored in the
third period, When Al. Falconer
scored for Alice Arm, and the final
scpre was, Alice Arm 10, Anyox 2.,
The goal getters for Alice Arm,
were: Al. Falconer 4, Oatman 4,
Gus. Anderson 1, Gray 1. For
Anyox, Wilson scored the first goal
and Anderson the second.
Although the game was interesting—as hockey games always are-~
neither team played the brilliant
dashing game as on previous
occasions. The ice was heavy,
which probably curtailed the speed
of the players, but everyone had a
good time and that is everything.
Following is'the line, up of the
teams;
Anyox, Stubbs, goal; Wilson

Elks Hold Social Event
A very pleasant social evening
was held at the Elks* Hall, on Friday evening^ Maroh 2nd, by the
Elk ladies. The evening's entertainment opened w/ith card games,
and twenty-five tables were neoess-
ary to accomodate the players.
The prize winners, were: whist,
Mrs. H.M. Selfe, and Mr. J\ Tier-,
ney. Five-hundred, Mrs. P. Rob-
bins and Mr. N. Forbes. Bridge,
Miss M. Greening, Mrs. K. C.
Peterson, Mr. L. F. Champion.      ,
Following the card game a
dainty,lunch was 8ervedv.by the
ladies, and the latter part of the
evening was devoted to dancing', to
the music of Messrs/Haesler, piano;
Prevost, banjo; Tynmouth, drums.
Outlook is Bright for
Coming Summer at
Alice Arm
The logging oamp of Trethewey
Bros., will employ about sixty men,
and the Granby Co's camp will, it.
is expeoted, employ about forty
men. Several smaller camps will
also be operating.
With the disappearance of the
sriow several mining properties will
commence operations. The Esperanza mine will continue operations
throughout the summer,, and' the
Lone Maid property is also expected to oontinue operations. Development work will be undertaken
on the Horse Shoe group, by Wm.
Bunting, of Hyder, Alaska, and
Elmer Ness, and the Homestake
Mining Company will develop their
property at the Kitsault Glaoier.
While no! word has been received
regarding the operation of the
Dolly Varden and Wolf properties,
it is expected that these properties
will shortly be operated, as the
railway, power plant, etc. are rapidly depreciating in value through
being/ idle. Numerous enquiries
regarding mining properties are
being received from the outside,
and there is every possibility of the
rich mineral deposits of this district
being developed by big mining
oompanies in the near future.
Alice Arm is unquestionably one of
the richest mining camps on the
continent, and the ore in the ground
is going to-be extracted.
Granby Co. to Ship
Copper to Tacoma
"'Instead of shipping the blister
copper produced at Anyox to Long
Island, N. Y. arrangements have
been made by the Granby Company
to have the oopper refined at
Tacoma, Washington. This will,
mean a considerable reduction of
operating costs as.the. long haul to
the Eastern States will be eliminated. During the past three years
the copper has been shipped east
via the Panama Canal, and previous to then it was shipped by
railway which was a costly operation. All impurities and gold
will be extracted at Tacoma, and
the oopper will be readj for marketing. Japan is becoming a large
buyjer of copper, and it is
very probable that a large part of
the GranBy oopper will find its
way to that country, and also
other countries whose shores are
washed by the Pacific Ooean.

Kitsault River Bridge
Transportation problems in the
Alice Arm district have become
, acute, and the prosperity of the
town will be seriously handicapped
during the corning summer unless
means of transportation are provided, and the two chief industries
mining and logging are fostered.
Owing to the non-operation of the
Dolly Varden Railway, the only
means of communication with the
upper Kitsault country is by hand
cars, and to make matters worse
no means of communication will be
available to the east bank of the
Kitsault River as soon as the river
rises in the spring, The necessity
of the building of a bridge across
the Kitsault River has been brought
to the attention of the government
on numerous occasions, but so far,
all efforts have been futile. It
is the business of the government to
provide trasportation in the undeveloped parts of the province, in
fact it is a necessity to enable the
government to obtain increased
revenue. A mining company does
not expect to obtain wealth from a
mine until a certain amount of
development work has been done
and the government is in the same
category, inasmuch as they can
not expect increased revenue from
this district until they help to develop the country by providing
meansof transportation. The government are always short of funds for
this district but as long as money
is found to build paved roads in
the south for the benefit of auto
speed fields, and foreign tourists to
joy ride over, no legitimate excuse
can be given for not building a
bridge over the Kitsault River.
Which is of most benefit to the
province, to build a net work of
auto roads in the south in order to
catch a few stray dollars from
American tourists, or to develop
this rich northern country, and
bring in mines equal or surpassing
those already in existence.? The
residents of the northern mining
camps are the pioneers, who are
developing the natural resources.
They are denied the luxuries
enjoyed by the * larger centres of
population in the south, and the
government should in common
courtesy provide means of transportation for them in order that they
may live.

A Little Deficient
A heated argument was in full.swing
around the stove in Steve Dumas' snug
little store the other evening. Said
one of one nosiest:
"Well, I guess I ought/ to know.
Don't you think I got any brains'"
"Boy," said an elderly man who was
listening to the argument, "If brains
were dynamite, you could'nt blow

Copper
New York—Substantial sales of
copper have been made at 16 cents a
pound delivered. While consumers
are showing a slight hesitancy to pay
16 cents, there is every indication that
with good tonnage!sold at*15 7-8 cents
Saturday and Monday morning, prices
will be firmly established at 16 cents
by afternoon buying. All producers
by one o'clock were holding at 16 cents
delivered so far as could be learned.
This is a jump at 8-8 cents a pound
since Friday and marks a rise of 1
cent to 11-8 cent rise during the }ast
ten days. ,
This is the most rapid rise in price
of copper in times of peace in more
10 years of the industry's history. Predictions are freely made that prices
will go well above 16 cents before the
present buying movement is over.
Producers were unusually busy all
Monday morning answering long distance calls from all over the country
and it is virtually certain that business
will be done this afternoon at 16 cents
delivered. Demand is extraordinarily
large and it is estimated that a total
of 6,000,000 pounds have been sold to
Europe today by American producers.
Germany has bought over 2,000,000
pounds in the last 24 hours from
American producers. France, England, Italy and Scandinavia have also
been good buyers.
Oil
Net income, of $12,256,132 of Standard Oil Co. of New Jersey has been
previously reported, tor the first six
months of last year, is equal to $1.36 a
share, after prefered dividends, on the
3,155,173 shares of common stock then
outstanding.
This income was derived largly from
other companies, largely natural gas
companies in the United States and
companies in other countries. On its
own operations the company reported
a deficit of $365,000, after handling a
gross business of $311,000,000 in the six
months.
Iron & Steel
London—January production of pig
iron amounted to 507,000 tons against
533,700 in December and 288,000 in January, 1022. Output of steel ingots and
casting totalled 621,300 tons, highest
since December 1920. Furnaces in
blast at end of January numbered 183,
increase of 14 during the month.
Pittsburg—Steel plants' are absorbing enormous amounts of pig iron, but
buying from merchant furnaces is not
in large volume. The market, however
is being quietly cleaned up and furnace
men confidently predict higher prices.
Buying is scattered. Bessemer is
quoted at $28, basic at $26 and foundry at $27.50 to $28, valley.
Rubbtir
London—World rubber output is
expected to total 320,000 tons in 1023.
American consumption is estimated at
310,000 and world 415,000 tons.
Lumber
Chicago—Strength continues to
feature lumber market, American
Lumberman says: Demand, while
much reduced from recent record-
breaking peak, remains active and
well above normal, and bookings are
considerably in excess of production in
nearly all woods. Prices I'etain- firm;
ness1 and upward tendency is still
present, although advances are becoming less frequent and indications point
to stabilization near present level.
Recent cold weather in many sections
and heavy snows and rains have not
only interfered with logging operations
and lumber production in the south
and on west coast as well as in minor
producing territories where winter
operations are not the rule. Mill stocks
are being steadily depleted and more
mills are on this account constantly
withdrawing from the market.
Gold
January production of gold from
Rand mines declined from 700,000
ounces, valued at £8,857,500 in December to 764,000 ounces valued at £3,217,
000. It just equals November, the
third highest inonth in 1022,, and
compares with 335,000 ounces in January, 1922. Output in January was
highest for that month since January
1917, when 782,034 ounces were mined.
Furs
Winnipeg—February auctions the
world over for green pelts will show
increases of 20 per cent, to 30 per cent.,
especially for the best grades of long
haired varieties.
In the Hudson Bay territory the
catch has been below average in quality and quantity. Beaver, fox, wolf
and raccoon are among the long-haired
furs that will bring higher prices this
season.

Mining Industry of this

The latest mining news of the
Alice Arm and Stewart district is
given in a special edition of The
Mining World and Engineering
Record, which is published in
London, England. The article,
which is lengthy is also profusely
illustrated, and it shows that min
ing men in London are beginning
to realize the importance of, the
northern B. C. coast as a profitable
mining field.
The article says: "in view of the
older mining fields showing signs
of exhaustion that it is to Canada
the world must look for an expansion of .output. In British Columbia it is stated, the possibilities of
increasing gold . production are
brighter now than they have been
for years past. Among the proven
and most promising properties'
mentioned are the Dolly Varden,

Birds of a Feather
As near as I remember,
It was somewhen last December,
I was rolling down the street in
maudlin pride.
With a bottle's gurgling sonnd,
I lay down on the ground,
An a pig came up and lay down
by my side.
While I lay there in the snow,
And the bottle was down low,
A lady passing by was heard to
say:
"You can tell a man that boozes,
By the company that he chooses,"
And the pig got up and slowly
walked away.
Our idea of misfortune is for a one-
armed man to be calling on twin
sisters.

The secret of
good beer lies
in purity—
That's why Cascade Beer has for 35 years
been British Columbia's favorite health
beverage. No expense lists been spared to
ensure purity. It has cost a million dollars to build a plant to accomplish this.
But after testing Cascade Beer, you agree
that it has been worth it. . ■
