Owing to the late hour the Tug-
of-war which was to have been
staged directly after the baseball
game did not materalize, but it is
hoped to be pulled off some time in
the near future—contractors versus
the town—and it will no doubt be
some pull with Steve Dumas and
Walter MacDonald on the extreme
ends of the line
The baseball game was a thriller
from start to finish and that age is
no handicap was proven when
"Iron Man" Falconer let Harry
Downs Anyox sluggers down with
two measly hits in the opening
game of the sea-sou on the home
ground, making his 105th. win for
his home team.
The game was closely contested
until the sixth, when snapper
Marshall cluight one of Pete Draud-
son's benders for a home run, scoring
Cameron ahead of him.. Sherman
took up the burden, and withheld
the locals, the balance of the game.
Manning and Cameron starred at
bat, and Candy, Car^thers in centre
field made two sensational catches.
Pinal score Alice Arm 8, Anyox 2.

' The entrance pupils are showing
up very well and will complete
their Public School course most

The dilficult work of providing
adequate playground facilities is in
progress of completion. The men
engaged are handling the work
thoroughly and with commendable
little interference in school activity,-
Through their efforts, Anyox
School Students will shortly enjoy
the best playground facilities north
of Vancouver.
Anyox Community
League Smoker
The Smoker held on May 27th.
in the Recreation Hall, under the
auspices of the Athletic Department
of the Anyox Community League
was declared a huge success by all
who had the good fortune to be
present. Mr. Charles Wing occupied the chair in his usual efficient
manner. The Bouts were referreed
by Mr. A. Andrews and Mr. J.
Sherman. The Programme consisted of nine bouts as follows:
Dooley Deane vs. Ernest Green
Jack Sherman vs. Duke Hilbert
Bert Waite vs. Tommy Welsh
Ben Fitzpatrick vs. Joe Fitzpatrick
Fred. Schliehe vs. Don Moore
T. Gibson vs. Joe McGuire
Jim Ferguson vs. Art Andrews
Fred Johnson vs. Bud Blackball
Jack McColl vs. Dooley Deane
The Bouts were well contested
and some first class boxing was
witnessed by the fans.
A special feature of the evening
was a catch-as-catch- can wrestling
match between Al. LaFortune and
C. Collins, who were very well
matched and wrestled for twenty
minutes, each having their share of
the offensive and either man looked
like winning, at dif&rest . time".
The excitement would reach fever
heat in expectation of a fall, when
the under man's shoulders would
be about to touch the mat he
would make a remarkable recovery
and then instantly the tables would
be turned, and vice versa. Neither
man scoring a fall, Mr. J. Sherman
the referee, declared the bout a
draw. We hope to see these two
gladiators on the mat again soon.
A very pleasant variation to the
programme, was a violin solo by
Mr. Joe Parker, which was greatly
enjoyed and an encore was demanded, the boys were alio treated to
fifteen minutes of humorous stories
by that experienced world traveller
Mr. J. Trumbull, whose style never
fails to bring down the house.
This was the first of a series of
smokers which the A. C. L. are
planning to hold.     }

Why the Herald is
being Published
Anyox and Alice Arm have at last a newspaper of their own, and
are now on a level with other progressive communities. The people of
both towns will now know what is going on around them, and each
.own will know what the other is doing. Competition in sports will be
increased and the people of Anyox and Alice Arm will become better
acquainted with each other, and when the price of copper and silver rises
(and all indications point to an early rise in price) will visit each other
more often and attend the social events of either town. The different
organizations of Anyox has now a mouthpiece through which they can
express their aims and ambitions to the public and explain any new
projects they may wish to carry out from time to time. The Herald
will co-operate to the fullest extent with any organization in Anyox or
Alice Arm. in whatever they are undertaking provided it is for the
welfare of the citizens. In publishing this paper it is out aim to study
the interests of the people at all times, and to do our utmost to right
any wrongs that may exist, regardless of whom is guilty of imposing
those wrongs, it will be non-political and non-sectarian, and if at any
time this district is not gel-ting a square deal by the Government
—whether Liberal or Conservative—we will light to the last ditch to
the last ditch to obtain it.    The Herald has started its career in the
"jii'iildle of the worst depression of business the world has seen in modern
times. It is affecting this district also to a certain extent, in that money
is not coming into the district as freely as it would do were conditions
better on the outside. In view of these facts we do not feel justified in
publishing a larger paper than we are at present doing; but just as soon
as the price of copper and silver rises and more mines are opened up, we
intend to publish a paper in this district of  which  any town  in the
• Dominion of Canada might well be proud.
Can the District
A
support a Paper?
The question that has.often been asked since starting to publish
this paper, is "can the district support a newspaper," we wish to say
that if this district cannot support a newspaper it is radically different
from any other district with the same population and recourses, in
Western Canada. The combined population of Anyox and Alice Arm
is 2500. The mineral recourses have not even been scratched. The
Granby Consolidated Milling, Smelting & Power Co. has ore reserves in
sight to run for 80 years, and the ore reserves are constantly being
added to. Over 2,000,000 pounds (if copper is produced every month
by the Anyox Smelter. From 1200 to 1500 men are employed the year
round. There are 250 families and over 400 children over 5 years of
age. The Dolly Varden Mine situate at Alice Ann is without question the'
richest silver mine in British Columbia, it has broken all records in the
value of ore shipped in a certain time (was shipping two summers.)
All the ore taken out of the mine was close to the surface, and what the
value of the ore is that is still in the Dolly Varden hill no man would
dare guess.. That there are immense ore bodies in the immediate
vicinity is proved by the fact that high grade ore bodies have been
encountered on numerous other properties. Capital and lots of it is
what the district is crying for, and we are going to get it. We hate an
enormous quantity of mineral wealth lying at our doors, and capital
will flow in as naturally as water flows down hill. With all these facts
some ask the questions cm the district support a newspaper.? We'll say
it can.
The town without a newspaper is like a ship without a compass,
The research work on the complex ores of British Columbia by H.
N. Freeman, of Vancouver, will be watched with interest. Mr. Freeman
is one of our most capable chemical engineers and has already established a high reputation as a research worker by his development of
cyanide production.
The Present Copper Situation
Statement of John D. Ryan on the
Closing of Anaconda Smelter
According to information obtained
it was estimated that the copper surplus of the United States was of
January 1st. about 800,(XX),000 pounds,
and that since the first of the year this
amount has been increased by about
100,000,000 pounds. These figures include the 400,000,000 pounds of copper
which were earmarked for export and
against which the larger companies
had sold $10,000,000 copper notes
earlier in the year.
John D. Ryan, chairman of the board
of the Anaconda company, in a state-
issued in connection with the shut
down of the property, stated that
"under existing conditions no other
course was advisable."
Mr. Ryan in his statement gave a
brief history of the copper trade in
1910, discussing the conditions following the signing of the armistice. As
to the operations in 1020 he stated that
"during the first eight months, of the
year stocks showed a satisfactory
decline, when on account of a general
cessation of business activity in this
country, the industrial collapse in the
Orient and the general unsatisfactory
business and political situation iii
Europe the trade, was adversely
affected and notwithstanding the general curtailment throughout the industry, with but few exceptions, to
approximately -10 per cent of normal
production, stocks began to increase
and have steadily accumulated.
The average production of copper of
the Anaconda mines for the years 1016
to 10.18, inclusive, aggregated 202,752,
406 pounds annually. The average for
the last two full years was 148,120,008
pounds'. This decrease in production,
with the enormous increase in freight
rates and the costs of fuel and other
supplies has resulted in an excessive
cost of production, while at the same
time the price has decreased to beneath
the level of pre-war prices, resulting
in serious kiss on metal sold.
"Under these circumstances, and
the fact that there is no improvement
in sight" points out Mr. Ryan, "the
stock of metals carried being as large
as your directors feel warranted in
having the company finance, the loss
on metals sold being greater than can
lie long sustained , it is believed that,
in order to conserve the property of
the company and prevent the depletion
of its ore reserves, the situation has
reached the point where a complete
suspension of production is necessary
foi- the present."

ALICE   ABM:   AND   ANYOX   HERALD,   Auck Arm,   June 4th., 1921
British Columbia Ore
Goes Down
i
The Marble Bay Aline has hitherto been regarded as the.deepest
mine in British 'Columbia, having
extracted ore to the depth of 1,600
feet, The Britannia Mine has now
proved to that depth with success,
fid results.. The War-Eagle-Centre
Star Group at Rossland has reached
a similar depth;, while diamond
drilling at Anyox, indicates a relatively deep extension of the ore
bodies. With those results before
us British Columbia can claim
credit for its (ire bodies extending
to great depths, making big mines
with a long life and capable of
enormous wealth production.
Cassidy adds New
Coal Washers
Gold Dredging in
British Columbia
The question of dredging for gold
it receiving renewed attention in
British Columbia. Investigation
of the [gfniea River shows gold
over a length of'35 miles under
[conditions favorable for dredging
operations. According to the
report of J. D. Galloway, Resident
Engineer for the Northeastern
Mineral» Survey District, Willow
River, and Antler and Williams
Creeks in the Cariboo 'have been
investigated for dredging with
favorable results. It is also believed there are dredgeable areas on
the Ifi'aser River.
The Granby Consolidated Mining
Smelting & Power Company has
completed the equipment at the
Blainey loading-dock near Lady-
smith by installing a rubber belt
conveyor 1,300 feet in length,
which connects the small storage
bins with the hold of a vessel at
the wharf. In the coal washing
plant at Cassidy seven Overstro'ni
conoentrating-tables have been installed for the purpose of more
thoroughly cleansing the slack
coal than was possible with jigs
alone. A. new radial drill, a shaper
and other equipment have been
added to the machine shop. The
main slope has been extended about
1,000 foot, tlnis reaching a total
length of 3,500 feet, passing through
that part of the Held in litigation
and into that section the title of
which is not in dispute. The ventilating equipment at the mine has
been enlarged by the installation of
a Sirocco fan with a capacity of
150,000 cubic feet of air a minute.

purposes. The exact details are to

The Man Around Town
VV'Ishus the Editor of the Anyox and
.Mien .Arm Herald every success in his
new enterprise, Let the people get
behind him and back him up in this,
TIIKIlt  OWN   PAPER.
George O'Loane and wife left last
Thursday, for Vancouver. They left
hosts of good friends behind them.
George was a. prominent Elk, and
Mrs. O'Loane will be missed in musical
circles, where she was ever ready to
help out any good cause.
Charlie Winks also left, on the same
boat, for Moid real. Mis many lady
admirers are feeling his absence kecnl y.
Good luck follow you Charlie.
Baseball and Football are going
strong in Anyox these days. Keep
the good work going boys. Shertnan's
Gas-eaters seem to have a little the
edge on the baseball end, while the
Mine are a good bet on the football
end of it. Buck up Elks and back up
your pitcher and catcher. -
The A. 0. League pulled off a very
successful smoker last Friday night.
If any criticism is necessary we would
suggest a.little more variety; too much
boxing gets tiresome.
Trapshooting is another sport that
is getting quite a boost this year under
VV. L. Weuniuv, the energetic Secretary-Treasurer. The Wednesday evening'contests are worth watching.
Will any party getting more than a
,">i pound salmon kindly put it into the
bay again, su that our popular
manager's wife may have the pleasure
of getting it. Better luck next time
.Mrs. Miinroe.
The new superintendent of the mine
has arrived in town accompanied by
his wife. Success to you Professor
Bancroft in you new office up here.
Oblonel t'rabbe, a. director of the
Granby Consolidated .Mining, Smelting
•.V Power Co. of Now York is in town
again. He will hSid many changes
since his last visit amongst us. Most
of the dead timber of the camp has
been cut out, and to-day a greater
efficiency is prevalent than was ever
before! in the history of the camp.
There is room yet for improvement m
one or two departments, but this will
no doubt come about in the near
/future.
.linnny Dunn's garden is now in
prime condition for the gas.
The Elk's building should be ready
for occupation in about a .month's
time. It is a credit to the Lodg^e and
also to the town itself. Get behind it
Elks and boost witli all your might.
Someone reported three blades of
grass, one tin can*and an Anyox Lily
on Church Street the other day.
There must be something wrong with
the Goat's eyesight.
The store baseball team are working
overtime these days to get in trim to
meet the AMee A rm Merchants. Given
an umpire of our own choice though,
we should win.
If there is anyone in the Arm wishes
to know the correct way and how
many parcels a lady should carry
while holding a purse and a child by
one hand and pointing and talking to
the grocery clerks at the same time,
kindly call at the Granby Stores any
Thursday between the hours of 11 and
I2.U0 ami.
The usual speed boat contests are
still on every evening at the Hotel.
The Wanderer is still ahead.
"Mumps" and "All Day Suckers"
are running neck and neck just now.
The Suckers seem to have a little the
best of it up to date.
Don't forget the big dance given by
the Elks on the 3rd.
We would suggest a waiting list for
the seats that have been placed on the
Mine road. This would do away with
the bitter heart feelings caused aj; the
present time by more than one party
getting to the place of restat the same
time.
The Elk's team has finally got into
its stride winning Sunday's and Monday's game. The rooterswure at both
gaineS' in full force, but the music was
a little out of tune. However, Charlie
Grey's "Handbell Ringers" did very
effective work.
The children's playground on the
Main street is now beginning to shape
up a little better. Don't forget the
kiddies. They have been too long neglected. '
After the usual Lodge session held
last Monday, the Ladies of the Elks
were the guests of the Lodge. Whist
and (lancing and a dandy lunch pro
vided by thi! brothers was the order,of
the programme,
Mrs. Bromley is on the retired list
for a. few days with a sprained ankle,
Baseball League
Smelter Team in the Lead
Baseball is away to a good start,
with Sherman's gas eaters in the
lead and the mine running a close
second. The Elk's broke the ice
by defeating the smelter Sunday
evening, thereby making the competition more keen. The fans can
look forward to a season of well
contested games. At the present
stage it is a difficult problem to
pick the. winner at the end of the
season.
The standing of the league is aS
follows:      ,
Plaved        W. I,. Pts.
Smelter      3 2 I 066
Elks I 2 2 500
Mine 3 1 2 383
Junior Baseball League
The Junior League now stands
with two, wins for the mine and
two wins for the beach, so everyone
can look forward to seeing a battle
royal between these two teams in
their next game. Jack McColl of
the mine,and Dick Ballantine of
the beach are both working hard
to put their respective teams in the
lead.
Football League
Great Interest taken
in the Games
Smelter Team in the Lead
As everyone anticipated, football
lias become one of the leading
sports of Anyox. Three teams are
in the league, and some first-class
football is being played, and when
the boys get loosened up a bit,
some expert players will be developed. The games are well attended
as many as 500 persons being on
the held at some of the matches.
Prince Rupert will have to look to
its laurels when.they journey up
here on July 1st. The smelter is
in the lead at football as well as
baseball, .who said that gas taken
in small quantities, similar to the
feed Moor, was'nt good for a man.?
It would be only fair to the Rupert
team to takethem up to the smelter
and stick around the feed floor, etc.
for an hour or two just before the
game, so that they will not be
handicapped in any way.
Give the boys lots of support, its
great medicine; also give them
someone to report the games, it
also is great medicine.
The present standing, of the
teams is as follows:
Pld.    W.    L.    Drn. ■ Pts.
Smelter   2 2       0       0 4
Mine   ,2 110 2
Elks        2 0       2       0 0
EMPIRE  DAY  EXTRACTS
The way the Prospectors put it
over the Anyox boys was awful
Did someone say 8-2 ?
Talking about prospectors, the
Elks brought up a pretty good
bunch.
And it was high grade they
found.
It was the unanimous opinion of
the visitors that Alioe Arm is the
best little milling camp in B. C.
Sure it is. Welcome little strangers.   We are always home.
A few were so enthused with our
fresh air and scenery that they
stopped over for a couple of days.
Take the boys out Pete and give
them a little practice.
Because Alice Arm is going to
play ball next time.
Too   bad   more  of   the officers
could not come up, but we suppose
Some, were sick and could not
come,
Some were out with rod and
gun,
"Some had the gas boat on the
bum,
But the lucky ones came and
got the fun.
