Disastrous Fire Sweeps
Alice Arm Business
Early Morning Blaze Wipes
Out Eleven Buildings
The most disastrous fire that has
i1 ever visited Alice Arm, broke out
in the early hours of Saturday
morning'. It destroyed eleven
buildings, and threatened to totally
destroy the whole business section
of the town. The Alice Arm Meat
Market was blown up with dynamite after it had caught on fire
and with this building levelled to
the ground, fire fighters drenched the Welcome Hotel with water
and held the flames in check.
The buildings destroyed were the
Pioneer Hotel and the adjoining-
Pioneer Cafe building and a residence at the rear, all owned by N.
Sutilovich; The Sunset Hotel owned by J. Thomas; The Bli3e Front
Rooming House, and residence at
rear, owned by Geo. Beaudin; The
Alice Arm Meat Market, owned by
W. A. Wilson who resided in the
same building; residence owned by
Geo. Young of Powell River;
small store building owned by the
Alice Arm Freighting Co; railway
shed owned by the Dolly Varden
Mines Co., and an unused log
cabin, built by Frank Roundy in
the early days of the camp.
It is estimated that the fire loss
on buildings is over $20,000. Very
few personal effects were saved and
this loss runs into a high figure.
Very little insurance was carried on
the buildings. The Sunset Hotel
was insured for $4,500, the Pioneer
Hotel for $3,000, Geo. Young's
residence $500. The engine used
for the refrigerating plant at the
Meat Market was the only thing
insured there. It is understood
that the effects in the dolly Varden
railway freight shed, which included two compressor plants were
insured. Everything else was a
total loss to the owners, and it is a
blow from which they will take a
long time to recover.
The fire broke out at the front of
the Pioneer Hotel, or between the
Hotel and Cafe buildings, which
were very close. Its origin is unknown. Mr. and Mrs. W. MacDonald who resided at the rear of
the buildings were the first to notice
the blaze about 1 a.m. It was then
out of control. They aroused the
sleeping neighbors and so quickly
did the flames gain headway that in
a few minutes the two buildings
were a seething mass of flames, and
nothing could be saved.
The intense heat immediately set
fire to the adjoining Sunset Hotel.
The inmates Mr. and Mrs. J.
Thomas and family, after saving a
few personal effects, escaped partially dressed down the already
burning outside stairway.
Four buildings were now a flaming inferno, and the glare of the

Alice Arm Ladies Hold
Successful Sale of
The Sale of Work and Home
Cooking organized by the Woman's
Auxiliary of St. Michael's Churoh,
Alice Arm, which was advertised
for Saturday afternoon, was postponed until Monday. The reason
for the postponement was the big
fire on Saturday morning which
left everyone's nerves in a jumpy
The sale, however, did not suffer
from the postponement for as soon
as the doors were open the building was thronged with anxious
buyers, and by the evening very
few articles were unsold.
There were stalls for needlework
and knitted goods, home cooking,
vegetables,' ice cream, cake and
coffee, and a fish pond, and all did
a thriving business.
During the evening all unsold
goods were auctioned off by Mrs.
J. Wheatley. W. M. Cummings
held the lucky number for the
centre piece, and W. Buckley, was
the winner of a dressed doll. The
latter desired that it be re-drawn
until won by some ohild, the winner being Bobby Benton.
The total receipts for the day
amounted to $10015. Some ex
penses, however, have to be paid.
This money will be devoted
toward the Church building fund.
The officers and members of the
auxiliary are to be complimented
upon the wonderful success achieved, and for which they deserve
great credit.

Dalhousie  Co. Tunnel
Still Driving In
Development work at the Tidewater Molybdenum property is
progressing very satisfactory. The
Dalhousie Mining Co. are pushing
work as rapidly as possible. A
crosscut tunnel is now being driv
en from the main tunnel. It is
being driven in a good grade of
ore, and before being completed
will cut through several ore bodies
of the same character of ore.
Enough ore has now been developed to warrent the installation
of a compressor plant. Before this
is done, however, the trail up the
hill must be improved, and it is
hoped that this will be done as
soon as possible.
A fine display of molybdenum
ore was sent to the Vancouver exhibition by the Dalhousie Mining
Co. It again won first prize, as
has been the case for several years.
The display received very favorable comment in the southern
press. A display of ore will also
be sent to the Prinoe Rupert exhibition, which will be held next

Celts and Mine Play a
Dazzling Game Of
Meeting the Mine in a League
Football game on Monday the 18th,
the Celts managed to get by with
an even score—2 all. It was an
extraordinary game. The Mine
had out a good team and played
superbly—clean, fast, and with nice
combination,—but the Celts were
packing horse shoes and rabbit's
feet in every pocket. Their stalwart opponents had nothing but ill
luck They simply could not get
the extra goals they so richly deserved. Morrison played centre-
forward for the Mine, and shone
like- a shooting star. Time and
again he missed by inches, or slipped with the ball at his feet and an
open goal shouting to him The
Celts, though apparently blanketed,
stuck to it doggedly, and worked
like Trojans to avert defeat. This
was especially true of their full-back
and captain, Jimmy Elliott. Musser, in goal for the Celts, played a
top-notch game. Just when the
situation seemed hopeless—and it
did several times—he was right on
the job'. Bob Archer was in control
and gave all-round satisfaction. It
was the best football game ever
seen on local ground, and the
spectators got the thrill of their
lives. One Scotchman was heard
to remark that he would readily
have given two bits to see a game
like that, so figure it out for yourselves.

The big fire which threatened
to wipe out the town of Alice
Arm on Saturday morning brought
out many weaknesses of our
system of fighting a big fire. It
showed that one or two picked
men should be in charge of operations, to direct affairs and see that
everyone is working so that he is
100 per cent, efficient. When a
fire occurs in the middle of the
night a plan should be in force
whereby everyone is awakened.
Water barrels should be handy, so
that they can be filled and quickly
transported to the scene of the fire
by auto truck or sleigh. The fire
was held in check after eleven
buildings had been destroyed only
by the heroic efforts of the fire
fighters and the water bucket
brigade, plus a perfectly still atmosphere. Had there been a
wind blowing, so that the burning
shingles which went straight up in
the air and extinguished, were instead blown onto the roofs nothing
could have saved the town. If
another fire occurs we may not be
so lucky in holding it. We should
be ready to fight a fire in a
systematic manner. We can not
afford to have another fire as big
as last week's
Copper Prices May Drop
Lower If Production
Not Curtailed
New York—Prices \ for copper
still lower than the present 11-cent
level are expected in the near
future by the Brookmire Economic
Service Inc. Its latest report on
the copper situation continues:
''The reason for low copper
prices is obvious. Producers, despite their curtailment agreements,
have not faced the problem and
reduced output in line with the 33
per cent reduction in demand.
Stocks have continued to mount.
On July 1 stocks of refined copper
were reported at 317,000 tons, the
largest since September, 1921, and
comparing with 83,000 tons a year
"It is doubtful, however, whether
strict curtailment by the big domestic producers would bring about
anything more than temporary
improvement in the copper situation. High copper prices, following restriction agreements in recent years, have stimulated increased production in Canada and
South Africa. Other new mining
projects still under way in both of
these territories will add to the
output over the next few years.
The maintenance of high prices
has therefore resulted iu bringing
in new production which will result in a lower price basis for
several j'ears. So far as the near
future is concerned still lower
prices are expected. Eventually
some of the high cost mines will
close up and the basis will then be
laid for price stabilization."

Disastrous Fire Sweeps
Alice Arm Business
Continued from page 1
building fell an easy prey to the
flames. There was no hope of their
being saved, and no time to save
any personal effects. Everything
was consumed. The owner Geo.
Beaudin was unfortunately in
Anyox at the time as was N. Sutilovich, owner of the Pioneer Hotel
and Cafe buildings.
Heat and sparks ignited the
empty building of the Alice Freighting Co. across the street, which
added to the awe inspiring scene.
The residence of Geo. Young,
which was vacated by tenants a few
weeks ago, and adjoined the Blue
Front burst into flame. The Alice
Arm Meat Market caught fire at
the rear, and as the heat made it
impossible to extinguish it, it was
decided to dynamite it in an endeavor to save the rest of the town.
The fire was now at its height.
It was a quiet night and the flames
and sparks and burning shingles
were rising hundreds of feet in the
air, when with a mighty roar the
earth shook as the dynamite exploded and scattered the Meat
Market over the landscape. It was
a never-to-be-forgotten scene.
With the levelling of this building, fire fighters rushed in, and
drenched the walls of the Welcome
Hotel with water. Owing to the
intense heat, it was a question for
some time if their efforts would be
successful, bnt they won out and
the fire was held in check from
spreading any further into the
town. While this fight was going
on, however, the railway freight
shed and an old log cabin near the
railway track caught on* fire,  and
were consumed before measures
could be taken to extinguish them.
The bush on the hillside was also
on fire, but fire fighters were holding it in check, from spreading to
the big timber higher up the hill.
Had it got out of control it would
have become a serious menace to
the town.
At four o'clock the fire was well
under control, and all danger to
other buildings had passed. One
could then view the desolation and
thank themselves that the fire, although bad had not destroyed the
whole town.
The roof of the Welcome Hotel,
owned by A. Beaudin was damaged
by falling lumber from the blowing
up of the Meat Market, and the
concussion destroyed a large quantity of crockery and glassware.
The explosion also destroyed many
windows in the vicinity, including
the large plate glass windows in T.
W. Falconer's new store.
