Basketball Season Opens
in Anyox at Mine & Beach
New Players and New Teams enter the Arena.
Sport Promises to be Popular
The opening basketball games of
the season were staged on Monday
evening, when three games were
played at the Mine Hall and two
at the Beach Gymnasium. Large
crowds were present at both Gymnasiums and were treated to some
very good exhibitions of tlie game.
The Concentrator and the Mine
Club intermediates supplied the
curtain raiser at the Mine, the
former team winning by 37 to 13,
MacDonald, who last season was
with the High School, was the
high scorer, with 14 points.
Pollard, a new comer in town,
showed a lot of class and should,
be seen in senior company. Evans
was the leading scorer for the
Mine, with 7 points to his oredit.
The teams were: Concentrator,
Thomson-8, MacDonald-14, Pollard
■ 12, McConachie, Moffatt, Mc-
faggart-3. Upjohn.
Mine, Evans-7, Farnell, Jacques
-4, J. Nickerson, Stubbs-2, Deane.
The Mine girls were victorious
over the High School, 21 to 8.
Both squads show considerable
improvement over last season, the
winners especially showing some
fine combination play. The students will no doubt do better as
the season progresses, and should
give a muoh better account of
themselves at. the Beach Gymnasium.
High Sohool Girls: Misses
Deeth-4, B. Chapmau-3 M. O'Neil,
A. MoLaohlan-1, C. McLeod, R.
Champion, J. Morley.
Mine Girls, J. Calderone-2, V.
Deane-5, P. McMillan.5, A. Scott,
R. O'Neill-5.
The senior tussle brought together the Gophers and the Mine,
the latter team winning 28 to 15.
"Dooley" Deane was the leading
scorer for the winners, with 10
points, while Archie Smith found
the hoop for a total of 7 for the
losers.
The Gopher squad is made up
mostly of new talent, with the
addition of Bob Stewart who is
turning out with them, they will
no doubt develop into a hard combination to beat.
Gophers, H. Staines-5, P. Ross,
W. Bruce-1, C.Bell, A. Smith-7,
J J. Hutchison, Helpley-2.,
Mine* V. Moore-6, D. Deane-10,
I S. Peters-2, L. Lane-2, J. Lipsky,
[ Halverson-4, F. Brown-4.
Fred Brown refereed the inter-
I mediate tilt, Bert Hogben the
[ladies and Jimmie Mitchell the
[senior game.
[Two Intermediate Games at
Beach on Monday
Two Intermediate contests were
staged at the Beaoh Gymnasium.
Irhe fans were given a glimpse of
lohree new entrants in the Inter-
loiediate division, namely the Smel
ter, Store and Moose. The Moose
made their debut in fine style,
turning in a win over the Smelter
by a 16 to 10 count. Both these
teams need a lot of coaching and
practice and also a better working
knowledge of the rule book.
Teams: Moose: Dearlove, Pynne,
Dodd, Lamont, B. Brown.
Smelter: D. Wilson, Gordon,
Beaulieu, Groves, H, Clay, J.
Cloke.
The High School, with practically the same players as last year,
easily triumphed over the General
Store "Shieks." The score was 26
to 16. Teddy Asimus led the
scorers with 12 points to his oredit.
followed closely by Swanson with
10. Jack Hill with 10 points was
high man for the losers. The
Shieks show considerable promise
and will no doubt make a much
better showing later.
Store: Campbell-2, Hill-10, Thorn
son-2, A. Niokerson-2, Leaworthy,
D. Cleat,
High School: Asimus-10, Swan-
son-10, McLachlan-4, Lazoreok,
Dupuis, E. Clay.
Bill Robertson refereed both
contests.
Three Games at Beach on
Wednesday Night
Three basketball arguments
were settled on Wednesday evening at the Beach Gymnasium, before a fairly large crowd.
The Smelter and Concentrator
Intermediates provided the curtain
raiser, the latter winning by the
narrow margin of two points, the
final count being 17 to 15. It was
a ding-dong battle throughout, the
winners being in doubt right up to
the final whistle.
Teams: Smelter: Gordon-1,
Cloke-5, Wilson-4, Groves, Beau-
lieu-5, H. Clay.
Concentrator: Pollard-7, Moffat-
2, Thomson, MacConachie-2, Mo-
Donald-6 Upjohn, MoTaggart.
In the second game the Bluebirds defeated the High School
girls by a 14 to 4 count. The
students had many opportunities
to score, but were unable to find
the basket.
Teams: -Bluebirds: Mesdames
Roy, Cutler, Dwyer, Cody. Crone
and McTaggart.
High School: Misses Deeth, Morley, McLeod, Chapman, O'Neill,
McLachlan.
The Elks made their initial appearance and defeated the Gophers
27 to 19. The game was fast and
furious from start to finish, The
winners showed a flash of fast
combination play in the final ten
minutes whioh put the game ou
ice.
Teams; Gophers: Bob Stewart-
6, Stan Stewart-2, Bruce, Ross-4,
Smith, Staines-5, Halpley-2
Elks: Hogben-4. Mitchell-9,

Mrs. Carl Johnson oi
Alice Arm Passes
Away
On Sunday last the death occnr-
ed at the Anyox Hospital of Mrs.
Carl Johnson of Alice Arm, who
passed away at the hour of noon.
The sad news was received in Alice
Arm early on Monday morning,
and oame as a severe shock to her
Hiaiiy'friends, who had hoped for a
reoovery from her illness.
Mrs. Johnson had been in ill
health for a number of years, and
a few months ago spent several
weeks in the Anyox Hospital receiving treatment. She had been
sick about. a week prior to her
death, and on Saturday it was
thought necessary to convey her to
the hospital, where everything
possible was done to prolong life,
but she passed peacefully away the
following day, the cause of her
death being heart failure.
Mrs. Johnson had been a resident of Alice Arm for nearly three
years. She was 44 years of age,
and leaves to mourn her loss her
husband, Mr. Carl Johnson, a
sister, Mrs. Mabel Dew'ar of Minnesota, U. S. A. and a brother, Mr.
Al. Hayden, who is at present at
Ketchikan, Alaska.
During her residence at Alice
Arm, Mrs. Johnson made a large
number of friends. Although continually suffering from ill health
she always looked on the bright
side of life, being of a cheery
disposition. The heartfelt sympathy of the whole community
goes out to Mr. Johnson in his sad
bereavement.
The Funeral Service was held
on Tuesday at the Union Churoh,
Anyox, Rev. C. D. Clarke officiating. A large number of Alice
Arm and Anyox friends attended
the Service. An impressive sermon was preached by Rev. Clarke,
aiid the hymns, "Rock of Ages"
and "Jesus Lover of my Soul"
were sung. Interment took place
at the Anyox cemetery following
the Service.
The pall bearers were: T. Black,
J. McDonald, T. W. Falconer, F.
Gallagher, H. Fowler, B. Turbitt.
Anyox Billiard Experts
Skilful Exponents
The first game of the billiard
tournament of the season is well
under way, and great interest is
being shown by the looal fans.
During the evening, in the pool
room the games, are of first class
calibre and are well worth watching.
The games already completed
have been won on very fine margins. Up to the present the
following have been successful as
far as the semi-final, Homer Clay
and Charlie Thompson, two of the
young aspirants There is every
indication of a well contested final,
Arrangements are being made to
hold a Christmas Handicap and all
those interested are requested to
give their names into the pool
room.
Mining Activity Prevails
In Vicinity of Alice Arm
Wolf Makes Ore Shipment to Smelter.   Esperanza
Leased.   Other Properties Working
During the week several important events have occurred in
regard to mining activity in the
immediate vicinity of Alice Arm.
The hill on the west side of the
town is receiving special attention.
On this hill are located the Esperanza, and Wolf mines, and prospecting shows that the La Rose
mine is part of this rioh ore zone.
On Monday last, J. Fiva, who is
operating the Wolf mine, shipped
sixteen tons of high grade silver
ore to Trail smelter, the ore going
out on the 8. S. Cardena. This
ore was all taken from the surface
by stripping the vein. Stripping
of the vein is now being conducted
on the south end of the showings,
and ore will, be taken out until
snow puts au end to operations.
A tunnel will then be driven and
work continued throughout the
winter.
Lease on Esperanza
Messrs. V. Stella, T. Mack, P.
Tickolis and F. Pellizzari, have
taken a lease on the old workings
at the Esperanza mine, and commenced work on Wednesday. The
lease expires on May 31st. It is
the intention of the leasers to cut
through a dyke running through
the ore veins, aud then drive a
raise to tap the ore. They expect
to employ additional men as soon
as work is under way, and later
expect to instal a small compressor
plant.
. Another Lease Pending
Negotiations are under way by
local men, for obtaining a lease on
a new ore showing recently discovered on the lower end of the
Esperanza, and it is expected that
agreements will be signed early
next week.
Native Silver on LaRose
Latest advices from the La Rose
mine state that drifting on the ore
is still being carried on, and that
native silver has been encountered.
Good Ore on Alice Fraction
The Alice Fraction, owned by O.
Flint, is another property in the
immediate vicinity of Alice Arm to
receive attention. This property
joins the Esperanza and the Wolf,
and the ore vein now being mined
on the Wolf has been traced to the
Alice Fraction. Surface stripping
of the vein shows it to be six inches
wide and the ore carries silver sulphides and native silver. In addition to the vein now being developed, there is another vein
4 feet above, also averaging
about six inches, while 4 feet above
this vein is another smaller one.
The workings on this property are
only a few feet from the Dolly
Varden railway tracks.
G. W. Bruggy to Operate
G. W. Bcuggy, who owns a mineral claim a short distance up the
Dolly Varden railway from the
Alice Fraction, also contemplates
doing development work on the
property this fall. It is probable
that work will be continued
throughout the winter, should
early results prove satisfactory.
It is possible therefore, that
there will lie five mines, located
within a short distance of Alice
Arm, shipping ore this coming
winter. There will at least be
three, namely, the Wolf, Esperanza and La Rose.
No Misrepresentation
Necessary
While a lot of good work is done
by publicity of our mineral wealth
on the outside, providing misrepresentation is not resorted too,
the only way to lay a solid foundation for increased activity is the
shipping of ore, and the smelter returns received. The mining property owners of Alice Arm have not
been wont to boost the camp by a
lot of clap-trap in order to catch
the tinway investor. They believe
in developing their own properties,
if it is possible, without outside
aid, and let the ore shipments
speak for themselves, a policy
which is both safe and sound.
Investors  Gets  Run  for
Their Money
Those companies that are selling
stock, have properties that have
such large bodies of ore that it is
impossible,for the owners to do the
work themselves. There has not
yet been a public misrepresentation
of a property in this district, and
those investing in mining properties in Alice Arm, will get full
value for every dollar invested.

ago for Vancouver, and mother
and son are expected to arrive

Ole Evindson Arrives
Ole Evindson, arrived on Monday from Vanoouver. He is one
of the real old-timers of the camp,
and one of the original owners of
the Dolly Varden. He built the
Alice Arm Hotel, which he operated for a number of years. He
will again be in charge of the
Hotel, and Mrs. Evindson will
join him in about a week. ALICE   ARM  AND   ANYOX   HERALD,   Saturday.   November   21,   1925

Review of
the Copper
Market
During tbe week ending November 7th. copper has advanced
from 14|c, delivered, to 14|c, not
a sensational change, but a steady
one, and it would seem that the
. much-desired 15o. level is in a fair
way to be attained. Sales have
been about on a level with those of
last week, the gradually advancing prices evidently having a good
effect on bringing out business,
though buyers are not inclined to
place orders much ahead of
January. Most of the copper sold
has been for either December or
January shipment, with a fair
sprinkling of November. Two or
three producers are somewhat
more anxious to sell nearby copper
than forward, but they have not a
great deal on hand. Monday was
the best day of the week, so far as
tonnage booked goes. Practically
all of the sales that day were made
on a basis of 14|c, delivered to
nearby points and Connecticut,
and 14| to less favorably situated
plants. At the close of business
Monday, most sellers had to come'
to the 141 level for Eastern do-,
liveries, and that price was being
generally quoted today, with business reported on a good tonnage for
Valley delivery. Some copper was
offered at slight concession, however, especially for early shipment
to nearby points, for which 14.80c
might have been done. On the
other band, 15c. was quoted for
Middle Western points.
Wire and brass mills continue to
be heavy buyers, and their excellent business seems to show no
signs of a let-up. The American
Brass Co., in Ootober, shipped 64,-
000,000 lb. of its products, which
is both a peace and war-time record. Its sales continue excellent.
Other companies in the same line
of business are sharing in this
prosperity. However, the margin
of profit is reported to be not
quite so good as it used to be; in
other wards, though a company
may be busier than formerly, it is
not necessarily making any more
money.--Engineering and Mining

Manitoba Has Bumper Grain
Crop
Not one crop failure in the province of Manitoba is tlie report of
the provincial Department of
Agriculture recently released.
Outturns from threshing machines
are satisfactory and a generally
optimistic tone prevails. Averages
per acre from 61 reports received
show wheat yielded 19-J bushels:
oats, 44 bushels; barley, 32 bushels;
flax, 12 bushels; rye, 19. bushels,
These are higher in every case
than final averages for the past
ten years.
Stewart Man Blows Off
Head With Dynamite
Exploding a stick of dynamite
upon which he had laid his head,
Wm. Burnhain, cook at the Indian
mine, ended his life on tho 29th. of
October, the day after his arrival
at tlie camp. He was alone in the
oamp at the time, the balance of
the crew having come to Stewart
to vote.
Murdoch McLeod, one of the
miners, returned to the camp in
evening of the same day and
found, the cook house in darkness.
Entering and striking a light, he
found on the table a note written
by Burnham stating that he would
be found in the small bunk house-
and that what ho was going to do
was his own business; therefore he
did not want any inquiry or inquest, and that he wanted to be
buried on the hill. Going to the
small bunk house, McLeod found
the body on the steps, and after
taking it inside, went to thirteen
mile and reported to the authorities by phone.
Revelstoke May See
Big Gold Rush
Recollections of the gold-rush
in the Yukon are brought back by
a report from Revelstoke, where it
is said gold is being washed at
$2.50 per hour. During the past
week or two George Mix and Jack
Smith on McCulloch Creek, 70
miles up the Big Bend, have been
working steadily and brought into
Revelstoke gold they had washed.
They report that in 16 hours of
shovelling they cleaned up §40 in
course gold, one nugget being
worth $9.
The cleanup was made on the
claim owned by George Mix, it being one of the group of placer
claims recently staked by a Revelstoke syndicate. This district was
popular among the gold seekers of
more than 50 years ago, and- the
recent haul by the Revelstoke men
has caused no little excitement.
The pay streak is said to stretch
for miles along McCulloch and
other tributary streams. Hard-
pan or bedrock has uot been struck
yet, and it is expected by these
men that when hard rock is struck
the diggings will increase in value.

How We Get the Term
"Horsepower" for
Engines
The community used expression
"horsepower" is based on the ability of the average London draught
horse to raise 33,000 pounds one
foot in. one minute.
The cost of a good horse and
driver is say about $8 for an eight-
hour day, or |1 an hour a horsepower. The same amount of power in terms of electricity, at an
average industrial rate of 7 cents a
kilowatt-hour, would be 7 cents, or
56 cents a day. Because of the
difference in terms, the purchaser
of electrical energy is frequently
unable to visualize the current as
being the equivalent of actual
sweating horses, which it is, and
does not understand tho units in
, which electricity is sold.
When'i'tliQ steam engine was invented a unit of power measurement was needed. It was found
that the average London draught
horse could raise 33,000 pounds one
foot in one minute, and 33,000 footpounds was accordingly called
"one horsepower."
Electrical energy, although it is
rated in kilowatt hours, can as
readily be expressed in horsepower.
One kilowatt is 1,000 watts, or
units of energy. Seven hundred
and forty-one watts are equal to
one horsepower. One kilowatt of
(Aivrent put into the average in
duction motor will deliver one
horsepower to the gears or pulleys
that do the work, and one kilowatt-
hour will do it for one hour at a
cost of about 7 cents.
Post Your Christmas Overseas Mail Early
'.''; T?i)e British Post Office has issued <l: warning that all persons who
desire to send Christmas presents
to the Old Country should mail
them long in advance of the holiday. The warning is for the purpose of avoiding delay to packages
similar to that which occurred last
year owing to the great congestion
•in the mail.
