Beach Baseball Team
Continues Winning
On Tuesday night last, the Beach
team again took the Cubs into camp
in an exciting game which was
featured by everything that goes to
make it interesting for the fans.
There were many good plays, and
from start to finish the game was
anybody's.    Final score was 11-7.
Allen was the Big Noise for the
Beach, securing two doubles and a
single in three times up, and turning in a sterling game in the field.
He took seven chances without a
bobble. McColl also played a good
all-round game, also did D. Ferguson and Hardy, the two latter
having a perfect night with the bat.
For the Mine, Lewis, Turner,
Smith, Richardson and Gibson turned in nice games, and had two hits
apiece. The game was featured by
heavy hitting, and the odd error
occurred just often enough to give
the pitchers lots to worry about,
and to keep the fans in suspense as
to what would happen next. Usu
ally it did, as is indicated by the
It was a tough night for baseball
as the weather was more suitable
for hockey, but despite this, the
interest was such that the fans stayed till the last man was put out.

Two Black Bear Cubs Are
Captured Near Alice Arm
A black bear that has been infest
ing the woods a short distance
above the town of Alice Arm along
the railway track was shot by J.
Studdy last week-end and the two
cubs accompanying her were captured. They are being cared for by
Mr. Studdy and will probably be
shipped east later.
The capture of the cubs was entailed with considerable difficulty,
especially one, who every time anyone approached, climbed a tree.
It was finally captured by using
climbers. Bears are extremely
plentiful in the Alice Arm district
and those with cubs so near town
are not appreciated by the women
and children when they are fishing
and berry picking during the summer months.
In the Qualifying Round for the
Ladies' Open Golf Championship,
played on May 30th. the prize given
for the lowest medal score was won
by Mrs. Roy with a gross score of
100, handicap 28, net 72. The
runners-up were Mrs. Sheen and
Miss Cloke, who tied with a net of

Norm Simmons In
Norm Simmons, one of the participants in the Big Fight Program
for June 9th. has unfortunately met
with an accident, and his place in
the bout with "Britannia Kid" will
be taken by Charlie Beck. Beck
hails from the prairies, and enters
the local arena as somewhat of a
dark horse. He has recently been
in training in the hope of taking
part in the evening's doings. The
important post of third man in the
ring will be filled by John Coggins,
himself a fighter and experienced
Arrangements as to all other official duties are fully completed, and
and everything is set for a big
night. It promises to be the best
card ever put on in Anyox. For a
few evenings next week public dis-
plays will be put on by the various
entrants, those opposing each other
appearing on different evenings.
Beach Ball Team Win
9*6 From Beach
The second of the League series
of baseball games was played on
Friday, May 26th. between the
Beach and the Cubs, the former
coming out on the top side of a 9-6
score. Although the number of
fans was somewhat limited, due to
poor weather, they were treated to
a fast and interesting game.
Stolen bases were plentiful as
follows: Gibson 3, Richardson 2.
Lewis 2, and Rowland, Whitehouse
and Hardy one apiece. Pitchers
for the Mine were Lewis and Lazorek, who struck out five and four
batters respectively. Ballentyne
hurled for the Beach and struck out
nine. Bases on balls off Lazorek
were three, and off Ballentyne three.
Messrs Cody, and Houston were the

two years at Alice Arm, left on
Monday to join his brother on the
Queen Charlotte Islands.
The weather this week throughout the district, has been anything
but springlike. Cold winds and
rain have prevailed most of the
time and garden produce has received a check on growth.
Mine Defeat Celts In
Second Soccer
Coming up for oxygen after a
downing by the Rangers on Empire
Day, the Mine administered a defeat to the Celts, on the debut of
the latter team in the soccer league
series. The hillmen played a sterling game in every department, and
fully deserved their victory. It was
a good clean game of football, featured by open play and good kicking
there being no wind.
Both forward lines were excellent
and shots at goal were frequent,
the goalies having plenty of work
to do. An unusual number of corner kicks were taken by both sides,
but none of these showed results.
Horner scored first after about ten
minutes of play, heading in from a
pass by Buntain. Coggins, the
Mine centre forward, secured the
next from close in, and the same
player scored again in the second
half. Ivor Davies flashed in a sizz-
ler at short range, and Tony Calderoni notched one for the Mine.

U. S. A. Delegates
Bi-metallism will be one of the

Economic Conference at London.
They have been instructed to strive
for an international agreement to
secure for gold and silver a definite
fixed ratio in value. If they are
successful it will mean higher and
stabilized prices for silver.

Semi-Weekly Local Mail
Service Will Be
The service of two mails a week
between Alice Arm and Anyox will
be maintained indefinitely by the
Postal authorities. This advice
was received by the Herald this
week from Ottawa and terminates
the uncertainty that has existed for
some time in regard to the local
mail service.
This I welcome news will be received with great satisfaction by
the people of both towns, as one
mail a week, as was proposed,
would have worked a great hardship
on many people.
The schedule will be the same as
is now in force, viz., Leave Alice
Arm Wednesday afternoon and return Thursday morning; and leave
Alice Arm Saturday morning and
return same evening. When the
change is made in the schedule of
the Canadian National Steamships,
however, and their boats call at
Anyox on Friday, the local service
will be changed. The mail will
then leave Alice Arm on Friday and
return same night or Saturday
morning; also leave Alice Arm each
Tuesday morning and return same
New tenders will be called for
this schedule, and pending the
awarding of the contract, the present semi-weekly service will be
We also received a letter this
week from Hon. George Black,
Speaker of the House of Commons,
stating that the semi-weekly service
will be maintained, and that he had
made the strongest possible recommendation to the Postal authorities
for a continuation of the service
along the lines suggested in our
letter to him.
As we stated in last week's issue,
there was no doubt that two
mails a week would be continued
now that the full facts had been
presented to the Postal authorities
both directly and through Hon.
George Black, M. P. and Mr. Olof
Hanson, M. P. Both these gentlemen, who sit on opposite sides of
the House worked indefatigably for
the welfare of the district, and we
again voice our thanks for the interest they displayed. It is indeed
refreshing and inspiring to see political opponents join together for
the common welfare.

Recent advices from the United
States indicate that a strangle hold
has been obtained on the depression in that country, and that the
forward march to prosperity has
commenced. Prices of commodities are rising, and the stock
markets are experiencing a boom
as investors realize that the bottom
of low prices is past and that a
revival of business is at hand. In
general with all other commodities,
prices of copper and silver have
risen. Copper is now quoted at
7 1 -2 cents a pound and silver at
34 1 -2 cents an ounce. The increase in price of these two metals is a source of great satisfaction
to everyone in this district, and the.
flame of hope burns a little brighter
in consequence. Copper will continue to rise with other commodities as general business increases,
and a bigger demand is created.
Silver, however, is in a different
category. It still remains the plaything of the world's leading
nations. Its fate will probably be
settled at the World Economic
Conference now being held in
London. Strong efforts will be
made to induce the nations at the
conference to accept bi-metallism,
with a definite fixed ratio for silver
in relation to gold. The American delegates have been instructed
to spare no effort in striving to
attain this end. If their efforts are
successful—and it is very probable
they will be—then the price of
silver may be stabilized at somewhere from 60 c. to $1.00 per
ounce. It will be a happy day
for Alice Arm and every silver
mining camp in the province if
such prices prevail. The depression, as far as Alice Arm is concerned, will then cease to exist.
Fourteen Million Americans
Visited Canada In 1932
More than fourteen million
Americans visited Canada last
year, according to an estimate re-
ceivod by the tourist department of
the Canadian National Railways
from the Canadian Government.
This number constituted by far the
bulk of the tourist traffic to Canada, the number of visitors from
other countries being estimated at
only 11,000.
The United States, in turn, attracted more Canadians than any
other country, the number of Canadians who visited the United
States during 1932 being estimated
at 1,500,000. Based upon population the percentage of Canadians
isiting the United States was
about equal to the percentage of
Americans visiting Canada.
About 30,000 Canadians visited
other countries.

Canadian Tobacco Production
54,000,000 Pounds
Tobacco production in Canada,
during the year 1932, reached an
estimated total of 54,000,000
pounds, according to the Agricultural Department of the Canadian
National Railways. From the
Virginias, from whioh Sir Walter
Raleigh brought the weed back in
the early days of the beginnings of
the North American Continent,
tobacco growing has spread until
now it is world wide. It has many
uses besides being burned at the
shrine of Lady Nicotine, among
the more important being the balancing of national budgets. Tobacco is also valuable to the agricultural industry as an inseoticide.

Big Conversion Loan Will Be
Made In Fall
While at the moment no an
nouncement has been made, it is
currently expected that security
holders will be asked to accept an
interest rate of 3$ per cent, on the
proposed Dominion conversion loan
authorised at $750,000,000.
The loan will be floated in October or November, it is believed.
Money conditions at the time of
flotation as well as any decisions
reached at the coming World Economic Conference will be in the
final factors in setting the interest
rate as well as the amount of the
loan. Authority is being asked of
parliament to convert as much as
750 million dollars.
Mining Is Leader Among
The following facts were recently
announced by the U. S. Bureau of
Mines and by the Census Bureau
of Statistics:
The mining industry supports
12.4 times as many people as agriculture and stock raising.
It employs 16 times as many
workers, provides 60 times as much
revenue to the railroads, and 140
times as much tonnage.
It provides 19 times as much
primary wealth to the world and
pays 85 times as much taxes.
Agricultural Products of B.C.
Shows Increase
British Columbia produced the
greatest quantity of agricultural
products in its history last year,
but received for the output, the
lowest market prices for many a
year, states the annual summary

CanADA-The Ideal Vacation Land
A Country of Scenic Charm and Outdoor Regression
[StJSJ N recent years Canada has
^SKIaT become one o( the most
popular playgrounds of tho
North American continent
and millions of tourists visit
this country annually, in
search of recreation.
Canada possesses an extensive system of modern highways, with good
secondary roads linking together tlie
main routes of travel. Excellent
train services are in operation between the principal cities, while
steamship lines connect lake and
ocean ports. Every class of travel
accommodation is available, from
tourist camp to luxurious hotel. Our
larger Canadian cities possess some
of the finest hotels in the world and
the majority of smaller cities und
towns have modern establishments
which cater to the travelling public.
Recreational  Attractions  Nearby
Within reasonable touring distance of the main centres of population, recreational attractions of
outstanding merit are to be found.
Lakes and rivers well stocked with
fish, hunting areas of vast extent and
camping grounds in their natural
state, are only a few of the many
features which make the country a
popular vacation land during all seasons of the year. An atmosphere
of old France permeates Quebec and
the Maritimes, while Ontario and
the Western provinces have much to
offer by way of historic sites and
Numerous Canoe Trips
For those who desire a vacation
close to nature, a canoe trip is ideal
and Canada's extensive system of
rivers and lakes offers a limitless
choice of route and type of trip.
For the novice there are many trips
close to civilization, which may be
taken with comfort and perfect
safety, while unmapped and even
unexplored regions challenge the expert and the adventurous. Canoes
and equipment may be rented and
guides are available in practically
all districts. • Subject to reasonable
fire prevention regulations the canoe-
its, camper, camera hunter or
student of wild life, may come and
go, unrestricted, through the country's vast forested area.
Excellent   Fishing
Canada's fishing waters, on account, of their extent and diversified
nature, provide an exceptional range
of sport for the angler. The game
fish include, salmon, brook trout, lake
trout, buss, maskinonge, pike, pickerel, grayling, steelhead and tuna.
Intelligent protection and constant
re-stocking help to keep up the supply of fish in the popular districts,
while in the more remote areas there
are still plenty of virgin waters. The
cost of fishing licences is moderate
and the open seasons are long.
Golf  and  Tennis  Popular
Canada is well supplied with golf
courses and new ones are being built
in every province. No city is without
at least one golf club and most of the
larger towns and popular summer re
sorts have courses.   Tennis is also
popular in all parts of the country.
Government Bureau Free
Information Service
A number of specially prepared
booklets on Canada's recreational
attractions and automobile road maps
indicating the main connecting highways between one province and another may be obtained free of charge
by adults, from the National Development Bureau of the Department of the Interior, at Ottawa. The
Bureau also has on file information
concerning practically all phases of
recreation in Canada, which will
be gladly provided, upon request.
In order that the most complete information may be supplied it is desirable that applicants be as specific as
possible as to the areas in which interested.
Great Railroad Has Fine Police Force
White gloves, part of their official dress, are
especially appropriate to members of the
Canadian Pacific Railway Police, not only for the
smart touch thus added to their blue uniform, but
because they are emblematic of the force itself; an
organization of spotless reputation and unfailing
courtesy. Not only is this picked body of men,
uniformed and ununiformed, the safeguard of the
property of the world's greatest transportation
Bystem and its thousands of patrons, but its members
are friends and mentors to countless travellers in all
part of the Dominion. Wherever the company has
' an interest, be it a great terminal, a wharf or a vast
freight yard, "the man in blue" is to be found.
Many of the constables and their officers are ex-
servicemen and at their head is Brigadier-General
E. de B. Panet, C.M.G., D.S.O., A.D.C., a distinguished Canadian soldier with a splendid record
as a staff officer during the Great War. The force has
won many trophies for first-aid work and also in
revolver snooting, its Ontario team having captured
the Canadian police revolver championship for the
whole Dominion this year.

A Rhyme of the Miner's Crew
Did you ever stand at the mouth of a shaft,
At the close of a miner's day,
When the shift comes off and the dripping cage
Slides up the guides to stay
'Til the night men's turn?   The miner's job
Demands an exacting toll,
It asks for work of a he-man kind,
That scoffs at a laggards goal.
Do you know of the life that the miner leads
As he toils in his chamber deep?
It's a job that calls for both brain and brawn,
If one hopes to earn his keep.
His heart must be strong with a will to drive,
And his eye be trained and true,
He plans each task and he knows eaoh move—
The game of the miner's crew.
Do yon know of the drive of the tempered steel,
As it bites in the stubborn rock?
Have you felt the pulse of the clicking valve?
Tis the drill-god's tattoo knock,
To the miner's ear must be known each sound,
He must feel each throbbing plunge
Of his drill machine, as every blow
Is struok with a telling lunge.
Did you ever stand at the station deep,
When the time for the blasting's near
Then count each shot as its sullen thud
Sounds through the stillness clear?
The miner must know as he sludges out
Each hole, how the shot will break,
That the powder's right and the tamping too,
And how muoh the fuse t'will take.
Would you join, iu the work of the miner's orew?
Would you toil in the drift or stope?
Have you strength and grit when the job is tough?
Have you something more than hope?
Though the task is hard, it's well worth while
To know how the miner's plan;
But nothing short of "playing the game"
Will make you a miner man.—Michigan Mines Lode.

Canadian National
In this First National picture,
which is directed by Howard Hawks,
Edward G. Robinson makes his first
outdoor picture. It is a story of
man-eating monsters—horrible undersea cannibals—amazing rescues
supercharged with suspense, and
sensations never before filmed.
Fifty men defied death for five
weeks to make this daring thriller.
Zita Johann, a sensation in Broadway productions, makes her first
picture appearance and gives promise of screen prominence. The picturesque glamour of a Portugese
wedding ceremony is faithfully portrayed. You'll enjoy this picture
on Saturday.
"Tamil The Ape Man"
Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer presents a
new "Tarzan" in this picture,
which is taken with the natural
background of Africa, showing the
most beautiful spots .of that jungle
country. You will be startled over
its beauty of composition. As for
thrills, Tarzan combats lions, tigers,
crocodiles, and hippos without the
aid of a gun. Johnny Weismuller
not only looks the part of Tarzan,
but performs equally as well, and
shows his prowess as a swimmer in
a water chase in which he evades a
school of man-eating alligators.
Others in the cast are Neil Hamilton, Maureen O'SulIivan, C. Aubrey
Smith, Doris Lloyd and Forrester
Harvey.    Tuesday's showing.
All the gold produced in the
world since the discovery of America could be contained in a cube
measuring less than 40 feet on
each edge. In weight this is about
38,000 short tons—over 50 times
that weight of copper was produced in the single year, 1929.
Mining men in the Kootenay are
discussing the possibility of the
nomination and election in the

could be called to the office of minister of mines
