Grizzly Bear Refuses To
Be Bluffed On Alice
Arm Road
To overtake an enormous grizzly
bear with two yearling cubs on a
highway with a oar, and to have
that bear stand up and snort defiance in the middle of the road, is
an experience not often found even
in the outlying sections of British
Columbia. This is, however, what
happened to Barney Turbitt as he
was merrily speeding along the
flats road towards MoGuire's ranoh
on Wednesday afternoon.
He first sighted the bears a short
distance east of the intersection of
the north-east fork road and the
main road. Thinking at first they
were black bears he speeded up to
give them a run. But they didn't
run. They ambled along until the
car oame too close and then the big
one turned and raising herself to
full height snarlingly blocked the
road. It was an enormous specimen of a grizzly bear and it meant
It eventually moved off the road
and the car proceeded to MoGuire's
ranch and returned with J. McGuire, who although he shot three
times with a rifle failed to register
a hit, or if he did it was veiy slight.
The bear did not show the slightest
fear, and raised herself several
times as they do when attacking or
iii defence of cubs. More riflemen
«ere procured from town, but on
their arrival the bears had disappeared. Traoks followed for half
a mile showed they were headed
for the woods in the direction of
the cemetery.
Although grizzlies are fairly
numerous on McGrath mountain,
this is the first time that one has
been seen on the flats.
Three boys who were riding in
the car: Michael Blomfield, Arthur
Moss, and Meli Mikeli, the two
latter quite small, experienced a
thrill n6t allowed to many experienced hunters, for it is seldom that
a person faces .a fighting grizzly at
a distanoe of forty feet without
one or the other giving up his life.
Mine Footballers Hold
Successful Dance
One of the most successful and
enjoyable dances of the present
seas-on was held in the Mine Hall
on Friday last. It was sponsored
by the Mine Branch of the Com-|
munity League, and under the auspices of the Mine Football Club.
There was a crowded attendance, a
great many people from the Beach
being present.
The evening was made still more
enjoyable by the introduction of
several novelties, and desirable
prizes were distributed. Splendid
music was furnished by the Merry
makers' Orchestra, and tasty refreshments were served. The Mine
has gained a reputation for affairs
of this kind, and it is possible that
they will continue at intervals
throughout the summer season.
The Rangers Register
Another Win Against
Mine Team
Before a good number of fans,
and in ideal weather for football,
the Rangers defeated the Mine in
the League fixture on Monday last,
2-0. This was a spectacular game,
featured by open play, accurate
passing, and nice defensive work.
The Mine were minus Draney at
back, and Phillips on the forward
line, while Ion and Ferguson were
absent from the Ranger's ranks.
First blood was drawn by the
red shirts, Allen sending in a hot
one from the right wing which gave
Herzi no chance. Good work by
the Mine half-backs carried the ball
up the field, but the forwards could
not beat the defence. Soon after
Buchanan secured from Allen, beat
the opposing back and scored with
a low shot from fairly close in.
After the breather the Mine rallied,
but lost some nice chances by over
kicking. Freddy Calderoni, at
back for Rangers played a sterling
game, while Hamilton, at full back,
was a'tower of strength. 'He'rzT
played a wonderful game in goal
for Mine.
The teams: Mine, Herzl; Dixon,
Calderoni; Clarkson, Francis, Ferguson; Home, Wilkinson, Coggins,
Draney, Schaefer. Rangers: Hunter; F. Calderoni, Hamilton; Donaldson, Ellison, Dodsworth; Allen,
Flye, Peel, Buchanan, Murray.
Activities of Community
League Council
Seasonal activities are providing
much work for the members of the
League Council, who in addition to
many matters connected with sports
activities have the Dominion Day
celebrations on their hands.
The club house at the Hidden
Creek Tennis Court is to be extended. Mr. J. Barclay's tender
for this work was accepted.
The Rovers have  completed  a
fine new raft at the Elks' Beach.
This j is anchored as near the
shore1 as the low tides will allow.
Warm weather will find a flock of
swimmers enjoying this new facility.
Arrangements are completed for
the intertown baseball games be-
tween Ketchikan and Anyox. The
Ketchikan team will arrive here
June' 30th. play one game that evening, one on the morning of the 1st.
and one on the evening of that day.
The Anyox team will leave for
Ketchikan on Sunday the 2nd. and
play, a series of games in that city
Advertise in the Herald
Notioes were posted in Anyox
yesterday, June 29th. by the
Granby Company stating
that all wages and salaries
would be inoreased 10 per
oent. oommenoingon July 1st.
Three wage outs of 10 per
cent, each had been made
since the fall in price of copper and the present raise of
10 per oent. is based ou wages
and salaries that were in
force previous to the first out.
This raise, places the scale on
the same level as prevailed
previous to July 1st. 1932
when the last out was made.
The recent rise in copper
prices is no doubt responsible
for the raise.
Anyox All Prepared For
Big Celebration

Local Independent Candidate
May Be Nominated
The local political situation is
commencing to clear. Two candidates are already in the field: W.
J. Asselstine, representing the liberal*, and T. J. Shenton, standard
bearer for labor.
The feeling seems to be growing
stronger that the conservatives will
not place a candidate in the field,
but will support a straight independent. If this is done, a. convention
will no doubt be held which will be
open to everyone irrespective of
their former party affiliations, and
a suitable candidate selected. No
one has yet publicly signified their
intention of allowing their name to
go before an independent convention, but doubtless several have
aspirations. The editor of the Herald has been asked several times
recently to seek the nomination but
so far we have riot given it serious
Mrs. Olsen and son arrived on
Monday to join her husband, Con
stable L. J. Olsen, who has been
stationed here for some time, and
I they will reside at the Mine.

Celts Lose To Rangers
4-2 In Hard And
Keen Tussle
Although they made a gallant attempt to turn the tables on their
Beach rivals, the Celts received another beating, the score in the game
this time being 4-2. The Blue
Shirts fielded a strong team on the
22nd-and played willingly and aggressively, but the powerful forward line and stonewall defense of
the Rangers could not be overcome.
Early in the game Steve Peel
scored from close in, and shortly
afterwards Donaldson got one from
a mix-up in goal. On their mettle
after this reverse, the Celts carried
the play to the Rangers' end and
almost succeeded in scoring, Hunter
making a nice clearance. Back to
the lower net the Reds' forwards
again got close and Buchanan made
it three with a close-in tip that gave
Bell no chance. After the interval
the Blues made a valiant effort to
reduce the margin, and Ivor Davies
scored with a well placed shot.
Fast play followed, with some
nice work by the Celts' forwards,
who could not break through the
strong defence against them. A
strong kick brought the ball against
Ion, and then into the net. Sparky
Johnston controlled the game.
Theteams: Celts; Bell;Johnston,
Currie; Deeth, Williams, Francis;
Buntain, Hawes, Davies, Horner,
Gillies. Rangers: Hunter; Calderoni, Ion; Dodsworth, Hamilton,
Murray; Peel, Donaldson, Ferguson, Bachanan, Allen. .

New Gold Mines Being
Created As Result Of
Mining Boom
Annual Report of  Minister
Of Mines Gives Much Data
Regarding All Metals
Gold producers of British Columbia last year realized a total return
of $4,656,000 in Canadian funds,
an increase of 40% over the value in
1931, figured in the same way.
An extensive revival in gold mining, both placer and lode, featured
mining in British Columbia during
1932, states the annual report of
the B. C. Minister of Mines, issued
last week. Compiled by J. D. Galloway, provincial mineralogist, the
report contains complete statistics
of the mineral production for the
year, detailed reports by the resi
dent mining engineers on their
respective districts, and a section
comprising mine inspection in the
province by the chief inspector of
mines and his staff.
The gross value of the mineral
production of British Columbia in
1932 was $28,241,618, a decrease
of $6,641,563, or 19 per cent, as
compared with the figure of $34,-
883,181 in 1931. This heavy decline was mainly caused by lowered
outputs of copper, zinc and coal,
and much lowered metal prices.
The decrease in production value
was to be expected owing to lower
metal prices, smaller outputs of
zinc, copper and coal, and the falling
off of building and constructional
work, materially affecting the value
of structural materials  produced.
On the other hand, a large increase was recorded in gold production and a small increase in lead
output as compared with 1931.
Silver production showed only a
slight decline in quantity. In the
face of unprecedentedly severe
economic conditions the industry
has been maintained in a satisfac
tory manner.
The tonnage of metalliferous ores
mined in the Province was 4,340,158
tons, as compared with 5,549,103
tons in 1931, a decrease of 21.8 per
cent. The average gross value of
the ore mined was $4.32 per ton, as
compared with $4.06 per ton in
1931. The slight increase in gross
value reflects the larger percentage
of gold ore mined in 1932, which is
much higher grade than ore containing base metals, output of which
was curtailed.
The feature of mining in British
Columbia during 1932 was the extensive revival in gold-mining, both
placer and lode. The latent gold
possibilities of the widespread mineralized areas of the Province are
now receiving belated recognition,
and there seems little doubt that
several new gold mines will result
from the extensive developments
under way and planned for the 1933
The silver output was 7,130,838
oz., valued at $2,258,453.       As
compared with 1931, this is a small
decrease in quantity,  but a slight
increase   in value,  owing to  the
average silver price for the year
being a little higher.   The principal
producers were the   Sullivan  and
Premier  mines.       The    Wallace
Mountain silver camp,  Greenwood
Mining Division, maintained profit-ij
able   production   even   at present
silver prices and development has
maintained the usual ore reserves.
Progress was made at the four
big mining operations of the Province—Consolidated, Granby,  Britannia, and Premier Companies—in
improving   metallurgical   practice,
making for greater efficiency and
lower costs.
The copper output, for the year
was 49,841,009 lb., valued at $3,-
179,956. As compared with 1931,
the decline in quantity was 13,353,-
2901b., and in value $2,109,407
There are now only two important
producers of copper in British Columbia—the Britannia mine of the
Howe Sound Company, and the
Hidden Creek mine of the Granby
Consolidated Company. The former curtailed production to less than
half that of the preceding year,
while the Granby Company made a
larger output than in 1931. This
company's Copper Mountain mine
remained closed all year.
Dividends paid during the year
totalled $3,042,213 and, in addition,
the Consolidated Mining and Smelting Company declared a stock
dividend of one share for each ten
shares held.
At the present time all indications (
point to increased mining activity
and production in 1933 as compared
with the preceding year.
"Don't yon set the resemblance?"
asked the proud mother, exhibiting
the baby. "Just look at our faces,
side by side." ,
"Nothing could be plainer," replied the guest, absent-mindedly.

CANADIANS are fortunate in
their National Parks, in that
they have within their borders Alpine scenery which is not
equalled anywhere on the continent, and more and more they are
realizing that holidays in Canada
hold for the lover of out-of-doors
all the thrills that could be found
anywhere in the world. Jasper
National Park in the Canadian
Rockies, contains many high peaks,
eternally snowcapped, and on the
sides of the mountains are glaciers
which have stood the test of ages.
Millions of tons of ice, stretching in
some instances, almost as far as the
eye can see, lure the adventurous
climber to new attempts, while in
the calm, peaceful valleys wild
game of all kinds live at peace with
mankind and the world.
Additional bungalows tot the accommodation of guests are *o be
erected at Jasper Park Lodge, the
log-cabin hostelry of the Canadian
National Railways at Jasper National Park, in time for the opening of the - season, it is announced by officials of the Hotel
Department, Canadian National
Railways. During last season the
popularity of Jasper National Park
was so great that the capacity of
Jasper Park Lodge was taxed, and
the  additional ~> bungalows   being i
provided this year will take care of
almost fifty per cent, more guests.
Four 4-room bungalows, each
room with bath, and two 12-room
bungalows, each room also having
private bath, are beitg ejected. In
addition, a double-deck boathouse,
with the upper Goor for conventions, and dancing, is being constructed, and an octagonal curio
building is being built near the
main Lodge. Four new buildings
are being erected to serve as employees' quarters, the kitchens are
being extended and the main
lounge is being extended to provide
for a ladies' reception room and for
a men's billiard and card room. -
hntrecl Symphony Orchestra On Air
This is the Montreal Symphony Orchestra which will
broadcast a Fireside Symphony Hour every Saturday between 6.80 and 6.30 p.m. E.S.T., starting
Saturday, Feb. 21, over the network of the Canadian
Pacific Railway Company's Telegraphs from Winnipeg
to Halifax. It will play .symphony concerts of a very
high order and the conductor, Mr. Douglas Clarke,
Dean of the Faculty of Music, McGill University,
(inset) has drawn up a series of programmes which will
be representative of three centuries of music.
The programmes will be chronological in character
and each will be representative of music written
between the 17th, century and the present. They will
begin with works or part of works by Bach, Handel,
Haydn or Mozart, continue with Beethoven or Brahms,
then go on to Wagner or Tschaikowsky, and conclude
with the modems. English composers will be prominent
in the concerts, including such modems as Elgar, Hoist
and Vaughan Williams, while an early English Tudor
composer will also be heard.
In this way the concerts will be representative of
the best in music for the last three centuries, in which
the art of composing reached its height, and every
listener follrwhg the ten programmes already projected
will acquire a knowledge of music which it would take
the ordinary concert goer years to get, apart from the
enjoyment of listening.
The Montreal Symphony orchestra has earned high
praise from critics, and its range of subject matter as
well as its perfection in technique 1b remarkably well
developed. The concerts will be broadcast from Tudor
Hall, In Montreal, and are made possible by the
Canadian Pacific Railway.

Office Men Claim Soft
Ball Championship
The annual sports event between
the store men and the office stall,
took place on Wednesday evening,
taking the form of a game of soft-
ball. Those who looking ou saw
plenty of aotion and thrills as the
two teams battled for supremacy.
However, the office men proved
themselves victors by bringing
home eight runs to the office men's
The office took the field, and at
the end of the first half of the
inning they began to look glum as
the store men rattled aoross the
plate three times, and the end of
the first saw the store in the lead
The glum look changed to one of
determination, which was bad for
the store men. The office settled
down to the "old ball game" and
made some real nice plays, which
held the "Merohandizers" down.
The store boys fought hard to gain
the lead but were held back by the
"pen pushers" right to the end of
the game. Kelly and Spencer
formed the battery for the store
men while Geo. Allan and Bartmann performed for the office.
Kelly lost control several times and
let the odd man walk, but when he
cut the corners, the office men
didn't have a chance to even look
them over. Allan pitched a good
game finding the plate for every
man but not letting them hit much.
Ross Oatman called the throws
while Dr. James officiated as base
umpire. Vic. McRae was kept
busy with the pencil and paper aud
managed to get the score down.
The game was pronounced a
huge success but the store men
would like to play again as they
feel confident they oan rewrse the
decision. They came almost to the
point of a protest when they dis
covered that some of the officials
had a wager on the game but de
cided to try at some future date to
show the office men how the game
of soft ball should be played in
spite of what the odds were.
A Farewell Dance Will Be
Given Victor Bell
A Farewell Dance in honor of
Victor Bell, who suffered a serious
accident while following his occupation as a miner at Anyox some
months ago, will be held in the
Mine Hall on Friday July 7th.

the supper. Three orchestras have
volunteered their services for this
special dance, Mr. Bell is leaving
Anyos in August for England,
as it is the intention of his friends
to make him a presentation before
his departure, hence the dance on
July 7th.
The Mine dances are always enjoyable, this one is sure to be even
more so, and it is expeoted that a
large number of people will attend

Anyox Canoeists Have
Reached Smithers
Interior Newspaper Gives Full
Account of Their Experiences
In the course of a hazardous
canoe trip, having their home at
Vancouver the main objective, two
young lads, Bob Mitchell and Alfred
Walters arrived at Smithers yesterday, says the Interior News of June
They started from Anyox a month
ago and were able to negotiate the
trip in' their light canoe as far as
Terrace,  but from that point the
force of the roaring Skeena was too
much for all their enthusiasm and
vitality,   great as those qualities
obviously are with both of the boys,
and they loaded the canoe onto a
C. N. R. flat car and hit for Hazelton, where they have spent a few
days sizing up the equally turbulent
Bulkley    as   it   belches   into   the
Skeena.   Accepting the  advice  of
the old-timers,  and realizing that
common   sense   had   intrepidness
skinned several blocks, the   boys
loaded their ship onto a truck and
arrived here yesterday.   They had
camped   at   the point for several
days, where they had put in a supply
of  provisions,   only   to   have the
otherwise strong hospitality of that
district rudely shocked when a bear
raided their cache.   The boys go
into   raptures   over  the    verdant
grandeur of this country and they
tell of the joy of roiling and sleeping in the long cool grass after the
barren condition in which they have
lived for several years at Anyox,
where all vegetation for miles around
has been killed by the smelter fumes.
They slather at the mouth as they
tell of drinking really fresh milk
and eating really fresh butter, eggs
and all kinds of fresh vegetables
after their synthetic existence as
residents of Anyox.   They are determined  to   return   to   Smithers
following their trip to the coast,
which they are confident of reaching
by canoe for at least the greater
part of the distance.   They admit
being quite prepared for spme very
hard old paddling, but grin a wholesome confidence of making it in
spite   of  everything.     The canoe
bears a lone ace of spades as its
identity.    It is fifteen feet long and
weighs only 75 pounds.   The boys
left yesterday afternoon for Telkwa,
where they will again launch their
canoe   at   a   point some distance
above the entry of Telkwa river.
By lakes and streams they expect
to make their way to Decker and
Burns lakes,  and at this point will
move   over  to   Francois lake   by
truck.   Down at the east end of
Francois lake they enter the Stella-
co river and by this route will reach
Fraser  lake.     From   Fraser lake
they   will   glide   into  the mighty
Fraser, and, they hope, home.
