Alice Arm is Protected
From High Water
of Kitsault
, The big retaining wall, which
was built to hold the mighty flood
waters of the Kitsault river from
devastating the town of Alice Arm
was completed this week.
The wall is over 600 feet in
length from the suspension bridge.
It has a width of eight feet on
the top with a much wider base.
I It is built of huge boulders, and
will safeguard the biggest portion
I of the town for many years, unless
j unprecedented high water occurs.
It was constructed in three months
j and great efficiency has been shown
both in speed and substantiability.
It is not expected that the river
will at any time endanger the
structure, but should such an event
occur means have been taken to
check it. A quantity of rock has
been broken down ready to be loaded on cars and rushed to the weak
; spot.
The danger of being flooded out
has always been a nightmare to
the inhabitants of the town, but
the    retaining     wall   eliminates
| ninety per cent, of the danger.
No more will it be necessary for
the people to seek refuge on the
hillside during high water periods,
not knowing when dawn breaks
whether their residence and business premises are still standing or
distributed on the waters of the
Pacific ocean.
It is possible that the wall may
be extended an additional three
hundred feet next year, to eliminate
| all danger to the extreme lower
end of the town. This piece of
work is necessary to complete what
has already been accomplished this

Plenty of Recreation is
Provided for Winter
in Anyox
Badminton, Boxing, Basketball,
Dancing, Wrestling, Night Schools,
Lodge meetings, Concerts, A. C.
L. Library, Picture Shows, etc. are
among the attractions provided for
leisure time of the people of Anyox
this coming winter. Take your
choice, boys and girls, men and
women. There is something for
everyone, and if one form of recreation does not suit, another will.
For those who have the fighting
spirit of their forebears running in
their veins; whose chief delight is
parrying and delivering blows; who
glpry in the flush of victory when
they survey a fallen foe, the newly
formed Athletic Club is open.
For those who delight themselves
in the terpsicharean art, ample provision has been' made and its many
devotees will have every opportunity
of dancing to their heart's desire
This is a sport that can be enjoyed
by both sexes of all ages, and its
popularity never wanes.
Badminton and basketball also
has many followers, the former is
played chiefly by those of mature age
whose days of strenuous exercise
are passing, but who still desire to
keep fit by healthy exercise. The
latter is a game for the fleet of foot
and of robust health. It is a game
for those, who like swift action that
sends the blood, racing through'
their veins, and excitement that
lifts them ,to supreme efforts. It
is one of finest indoor sports extant,
and some good games will probably
be witnessed this coming season.
For the studiously inclined and
those wishing to pesfect their educa-
tion the management of the night
school classes will welcome them
with open arms.
The Community League Library
is available to all members, who
desire to hug the fire on cold winter
nights, with a book. Books of all
descriptions are available from the
lightest of fiction to the writings of
the world's foremost professors.
Those with an active mind need
not spend one dull hour after the
whistle blows in Anyox. Every
minute can be utilised to advantage
if desired. The population of
Anyox is around 2,000, but many
towns with five times the population
can not offer such a diversity of

Large Turnout to Join
Newly Formed
'   Athletic Club
A large turnout of members and
prospective members were present
at the initial workout of the newly
formed Athletic Club on Wednesday evening. The flrst hour of the
allotted two was devoted to lining
tip the youngsters into classes,
preparatory to getting away to a
good start at. the next meeting
night. As practically all the boys
in camp were there, it was quite an
undertaking and the officers of the
club were kept busy grading the
boys into their respective classes.
The last hour was taken up by
the older boys in wrestling and
boxing and from the looks of things
there is some fine talent available.
The two sets of boxing gloves,
kindly donated by the B. P. O. E.
to further the success of the organization, were used 'to good avail
both by the youngsters ,and the
Sunday evening from 8 to 10
will be the next meeting of the
Athletic Club, so anyone interested
be on hand that night. Mr. Frank
Gordon will be only too pleased to'
enroll you in one of the olasses.
Organization Meeting
of Athletic Club
The newly formed Athletic Club,
held another organization meeting
on Sunday, when some twenty-
four members were taken on the
rolls. Two hours, twice weekly,
have been alloted the club for use
of the gymnasium. This organization will undoubtedly do much
towards fostering such sports as
boxing and wrestling, which, in the
past, have been more or less dead
issues in this camp. Competent
instructors have been appointed
both for wrestling and boxing
so anyone wishing to become
proficient in either of the aforementioned methods of self defence
should get in touch with the seoretary; Mr. Frank Gordon, at once.
He May Not Have Celebrated
If you meet a friend some morning with his eye colored a la Jiggs,
or his lips „cut and a few front
molars missing, don't for one minute imagine that it is the aftermath
of a former night's celebration. It
is possible that he picked these
momentoes up—or was rather
presented with them—at the gymnasium while endeavoring to master
the noble art of self defence.

The rapid drop in the price of
silver is of considerable importance
to the Alice Arm district, and the
whole of British Columbia.     Until
a short time ago the outlook for
silver was bright.   There was a
good demand and the big producers
were working to find new uses for
their product.   The   liklihood of
India adopting a gold standard is
the direct result of the decline in
price.   The Royal Commision of
Indian Currency and Finance report
that public sentiment is strongly in
favor of a gold standard.   Should
the Indian government adopt   a
gold standard they would place
400,000,000 ounces of silver on
the market within the next ten years
Some writers aver that 700,000,-
000 ounces would be sold, as the
hoarders of silver would also sell
their silver in order to obtain gold
certificates.   If such a course is
taken it will mean hard times for
the silver producers for a number
of years, for India instead of being
a big buyer of silver will become
the biggest seller.   From the dawn
of civilization, India has been a sink
for silver.   The natives hoard it
at every opportunity, and when the
crops fail or hard times come they
draw on their hoard as we draw
on our bank account.   The adoption of a gold standard is expected
to eliminate hoarding;   the natives
buying government gold certificates
instead.   Continued low prices for
silver would probably  result   in
higher prices for copper, lead and
zinc as the producers of   these
metals would demand a   higher
price to offset the small returns on
the silver, which is usually   associated with these metals.     It   is
of  course   possible   that    India
may postpone the adoption of a
gold standard, or if she does adopt
it to sell her surplus in such small
quantities as not to demoralize the
market.    She would only injure
herself to force down the price to
a ridiculous level, and this she is
unlikely to do.

Europe's Prosperity Will be
Reflected on Copper
Stephen Birch, president of the
Kennecott corporation, recently
made the : following statement:
"America's copper industry cannot
really prosper with European consumption so far below normal. The
copper industry has suffered as no
other from effects of the , war, and
has never recovered from its consequences. The progress of Europe
has been retarded, and with it the
progress of the oopper industry.
The greatly lowered European
consumption has been the cause of
the unprecedented depression in
our copper industry since the war.
As Europe is restored financially
and economically, America's copper
industry should once more thrive
and prosper."

Copper Production at
Big Mines is
Development at the Noranda
mine, in Quebeo, continues, with
400 men employed on smelter construction and mine development.
Smelter costs are estimated at $5
per ton. The Bhodesiau Congo
Border concession, Ltd., a British
oompany in whioh Americans are
interested, is to open another
important African copper area
adjoining Katanga. The Anaconda
Oopper Mining Co, continues its
production of about 17,000,000 lb.
of oopper per month, all of which
Is consumed at the company's
manufacturing plants at Great
Falls Mont. Utah Copper is producing at the rate of 18,000,000 lb.
per month.    The same oompany
llias just completed a new oamp at
[Bingham to relieve the crowded
■living quarters for its employees.
'More men are employed at Bingham in and around the mines than
I at any other time in the history of
I the camp.
In Michigan the Seneca Copper
has completed its construction
programme and has 300 men on its
payroll. September production of
refined copper in the Michigan
district was estimated to be 14,600'
000 lb., an increase of half a million
pounds over the total for August,
Calumet & Hecla output is estim
ated at 9,000,000 lb., Ahmeek and.
the Osceola lode branches showing
ah increase. Mohawk produced
1,450,000 lb.; Oopper Range, 1,750-
000; Quiney, 1,000,000; Seneca,
600,000; Isle Koyale, 800,000.
Metal business at the smelters is
good, deliveries both by water and
by rail being fully equal to:
the current production. After
a lapse of six years the Trimountaiu
of Oopper Range Consolidated, is
beginning to return a profit, ohiefly
due to increased production, which
is around 200,000 lb. a month.
H. S. Munroe, a member of the
mining engineer staff of the American Metal Co., reoentjy returned
to this oountry after field work in
South Africa. He is leaving soon
for South America.
The sale of
Beer by the
glass Vindicated
(T^ HE Government Control of beer sales to the
[*J people   of   British   Columbia  in  licensed
premises has been vindicated by the orderly
manner in which these, premises are conducted.
These quiet and comfortable establishments
prove 'that the open and above-board sale of
pure beer has in great measure ended the evils
attending the illicit sale of strong drink. They
have' proved that the self respect and good
behavior of the people of British Columbia are
more to be depended on than the opinions of
those who wish to prevent the people from
having any beer at all.
You may find ADULT MEN enjoying a healthful
and invigorating glass of beer in the quiet and
ease that the well-to-do have in their clubs.
Licensed premises in the colder winter months are
more than ever the working man's club, where he
finds the company and comfort that is his right.
The supervision and regulation of licensed premises
by the Government is a guarantee that the
excellent conditions under which beer is sold shall
continue. Efficient Government Inspectors see not
only that such licensed premises are operated in a
strictly sanitary manner. They look for. a high
standard of conduct.
The purity and wholesomeness of all beers
served—supplied by the Amalgamated Breweries of British Columbia—is guaranteed by
the frequent and strict analyses to which they
are subjected by the Government. In the
present administration of Beer Parlors the
interests of the public are completely protected.

the sure sign of commercial progress
They point out that the average
taxpayer does not build a home
until he is convinced that looal
conditions promise him steady
employment and the wherewithal
to pay the contractor. The same

amount of building in Vancouver
and Viotoria this year over the
corresponding period of 1925 is
symptomatio of what has been
taking plaoe all over British Columbia. Prom praotioally every
settled area reports of proportionate advances of last year's activity
have been received.

year, according to the Dominion
Dairy News Letter, Canada's
export of butter decreased close
upon two and a half million pounds

Dare to make mistakes, for there
is no way to be always right. The
people who make mistakes boss the
world. The perfect people work
for them, running errands and
counting columns of figures.
The man who is  constantly in
the public eye is apt to get an
occasional rub  from   the  public
Too many people spend their
time is condemning the work of
others instead of spending it in
improving their own.
Time improves everything but
women: they of course, have been
perfect from the beginning.
It is impossible to destroy
courage by plucking it up.
