A taking tlieir first defeat of the
season at the hands of the Bon-
Cons., and the Warriors being
overcome by the Rovers by the
closest possible margin. The best
evening's Bport so far this season
rewarded the fans who attended.
In the first game the Mechanics'
B tried conclusions with the Vandals B team, and lost by 11-16.
The smooth working miners, some
of whom are ex-senior players,
gave the Beaoh boys a lot to worry
The teams: Boud 3, Johnstone,

D. Hamilton, D. Ferguson, P.
Chenoski. Vandals: White 6.
W. Home 3, Lilge 5, J. Horno, B.
Windle 2.
Quite an upset was the result
of the game between the Rovers
and Warriors in the B League.
The Warriors Rtarted off at a fast
pace, but the Rovers soon had
them steadied down and on the
defensive, and a well played game
found the latter winners 17-16.
The teams: Rovers. W. Pinckney 2, Williscroft 11, Flye 3, Kirby
1, Kergin, McCarthy, Cloke.
Warriors: Dominato 3, Hill 2,
O'Neill 6, MoDonald 4, Harrison 1,
The suprise of the evening came
in the senior game, when the Vandals' A team went down to defeat
at the hands of the Bon. Cons.
Speed and brilliance marked the
game, the Bon. Cons, sensing the
chances of a win, and the Vandals
doing their utmost to avoid a defeat. Both sides displayed speed
and clever passing, with many bits
of brilliant play. It was a good
clean game, with less thau the

British Columbia's ?
New Cabinet : f
Premier T. D. Pattullo'has chosen
his cabinet. How wisely he has
made the choice time alone will tell.
He has included much new blood
and before doing so he undoubtedly
weighed the abilities and temperament of each member very carefully.
He discarded several of his former
cabinet colleagues in favor of brand
new men, and in doing so he showed a strength of character that is
necessary for a Premier during the
stress of the present abnormal
times. While Atlin was disappointed when W. J. Asselstine was not
appointed Minister of Mines, he no
doubt will be given an opportunity
to advise the present minister regarding mining problems in his
constituency, and his mining experience will not be entirely wasted
while he is at Victoria.
Curtailment of Copper Not
Necessary Says Belgian
"Metal and Mineral Markets"
quotes Ferdinand Pisart, Managing
Director of Union Miniere du Haut
Katanga, who recently visited
New York, as having stated that
production and consumption of refined copper outside of the United
States are in balance, and stocks
held abroad are only sufficient to
meet current repuirements. Because of the satisfactory supply
and demand situation abroad, there
is no pressure among foreign producers for the formation of a world
cartel, although it is possible that
a movement of the kind may develop later, according to the
Belgian coppar executive.
The good-looking summer boarder was enraptured about farm life.
"Oh, I'd just love to be a farmer," she purred, "and live with the
blue sky overhead always."
"That would be5 alright," the
farmer replied, "if the blue sky was
the farmer's pnly overhead."
Anyox Big Shots
The big shot set off at the Hidden Creek Mine of the Granby Co.
in September and the other which
was exploded early this month,
rank among the biggest shots that
have ever been exploded beneath
the earth's surface. In the first
shot approximately 53 tons of
powder were used and in the second,
30 tons. A shot was /recently put
off in the mine of theClimax Molybdenite Company, Colorado, when
55 tons of powder were used.
This is described as the biggest
underground explosion ever made,
and if such is the case the Anyox
shot in September comes a very
close second. The Colorado.shot
broke down over 350,000 tons of
ore and the Anyox one is credited
with moving 500,000 tons, so that
the Anyox shot holds a world's
record for the number of tons of
ore broken by one shot.

Silver   Prices  Expected To

The Pirates took the Rovers into

U. S. A. Planning To
Use Silver
The injection of additional silver'
into the monetary metal of the
U. S. A. is expeoted to be one of
the main topics to be considered
by the next Congress which convenes in January.
The belief in Wall Street is that
this question will be considered
along with the ratification of the
silver pact adopted last July at the
world economic conference in London by delegates of India, China
and Japan as holders of large
stocks of silver, and Australia.
Canada, the United States, Mexico
and Peru, as producers of silver,
with a view ofninitigating the fluctuations in its prioe.
Humors have been currput in
the financial community for the
last two or three weeks to the effect
that the administration was considering doing something with silver so as to increase its monetary
uses. This, together with the fact
that the price of gold has been increasing in the world markets,
resulted this week in bar silver
increasing to around 43 cents an
ounce, the highest level in the
New York market in more than
three years. About a year ago the
price of silver was quoted at only
24j cents an ounce.
