Riot of Color and Fun
at Mine Masquerade
The big Masquerade Dance held
at the Mine Hall, oil Monday
evening, under the auspioes of the
Miile Club, was one of the liveliest
affairs ever sponsored by the Club.
A record attendance, far in excess
of what was anticipated, in view of
so much sickness in camp, crowded
the floor to capacity.
The interior of the hall was a
riot of color. The ceiling and
walls being resplendent with multicolored decorations, and the gorgeous colors of the oostumes worn
by the dancers, produced ou inspiring and stirring sensation.
A large number of those present
were garbed in original oostumes,
clowns and convicts, red men and
yellow men, milkmaids and other
maids, princes and pierrots laughed
and danced their way through the
evening.
A large number of friends from
the Beach were present, which
greatly enlivened the evening.
The committee in charge are to
be complimented on the evening's
success, and even if there were not
quite enough refreshments to go
around, how were they to know
that such a large number would be
present.
Following are the prize winners:
Best dressed lady: Miss Helen
Wall.
Best advertising costume, lady:
Mrs. Fitch—Millbank Cigarettes.
Most original comic, lady: Mrs.
Walter Jones.
■ B"r*,dressed gentleman: Dr. R.

J. T. Evans, headed the com-
i mittee in charge of the dance; Mr.
Carton Crow was floor manager.
The Melodians Orchestra supplied the music.
j High Assays From
the LaRose Mine
The LaRose mine, which has received widespread publicity during
[(the past few months, contains
lvalues that will compare favorably
J with any high grade silver mine on
I the continent.
I An ore sample was recently sent
Ifor assaying to the Colorado Assay-
ling Co. of Denver, and the returns
deceived gave the following start-
||iug results:
Gold .28, value per ton $5.60.
Silver 770 ozs., value per ton,
B515.00.
Lead 20 % value per ton $32.00.
This gives a value per ton of
11552.60.
Another sample sent to the
pranby Co. at Anyox gave returns
In silver even higher than the
Ibove. A total of 911 ozs.. of silver
|jer ton being obtained.
Assay returns from the low
trade, which will eventually be
lailled at. the mine, gave from 29
|zs. to 128 ozs. silver per ton.
The .raise from the tunnel to the
[urfaoe is still being driven, and
%test reports from the mine, were
lo the effect that the high grade
lein averages two feet in width.
fever 60 feet of the raise has been
jriven, and another 80 feet is neo-
fesary before the surfaoe is reached.
Young Lad Meets
Death by Drowning
A very sad drowning fatality
occurred at Anyox on Sunday afternoon, when Wilfred Teabo, aged
8 years met his death in Falls
Creek, near the Mess House.
It appears that deceased with
three other small boys were throwing rocks in the water at high tide,
when he overbalanced and fell in.
Some time elapsed before the alarm
was given, and no trace of him
could be seen, the water being
muddy with the tailings from the
concentrating mill.
Poliae oonstable W. Smith arrived on the scene and suooeeded in
bringing the body to the surface
with an improvised pike pole.
Although artificial respiration
was resorted to for a considerable
time by F. C. Graham, first aid
attendant at the smelter, and later
by Dr. D. R. Learoyd, the heart
could not be forced to beat.
At the Coroner's inquest held at
the Court House by Coroner R. M.
McGusty on Monday, the jury after
listening to all available evidence,
returned a verdict of accidental
drowning. Those serving' on the
jury were W. F. Eve (foreman) J.
Hutchings, M. Cranley, J. Miller,
D. Adams, E. Moss.
It is regettable that so young a
life should be suddenly cut off, and
the heartfelt sympathy of the whole
community goes out to Mr. and Mrs.
F. Teabo and family in their sad
bereavement.
The funeral was held in the
Anyox cemetery, on Wednesday
afternoon at 2.30 p.m. The body
was conducted from the Morgue to
the Christ Church, and six Boy
Scouts acted as pall bearers. The
coffin was draped with white velvet, and children's prayers were
said by the Rev. J. S. Brayfield.
The hymn sung was "Forever with
the Lord". Just before the close of
the Service the Rev. Brayfield took
up his position standing behind
the coffin while the congregation
said the '"Nunc Dimittus."
The pall bearers approached the
coffin and carried the remains out
of the Church to the hearse, followed by the mourners, the Boy
Scouts, and the rest of the congregation, most of whom marched to
the cemetery. The Servioe was
very impressive.
The Burial Service was read at
the grave by the Rev. Brayfield.
Farewell Card Party and
Dance Held at Alice Arm
A farewell card party and dance
was given at the Alice Arm Hotel
on Saturday, evening in honor of
Mr. and Mrs. S. F. D. Roe and C.
Warner, of the Royal Bank staff
who were leaving town.
There were six tables of bridge,
and the prize winners were, Mrs.
J. Trinder and Mr. Ole Evindson.
A. D. Yorke won tlie consolation
prize.
Following cards, dancing was
indulged in and a very delightful
evening was brought to a close at
midnight.
During the evening, H. F. Kergin gave a short address in which
he said how sorry they were to
lose such valuable citizens and
wished them all the best of good
luck and prosperity in their future
life.    	
The local Moose Lodge will in
future hold their regular meetings
in the Elks' Hall, which they have
been fortunate enough to secure.
Meetings held 2nd. and 4th. Wednesday in eaoh month.
The-Dolly Varden mine has
been leased to Col. Victor
Spencer of Vancouver, states
the Mining and Engineering
Record, published in Vancouver. Numerous reports have
been circulated during the
past few months, regarding
early operations, but the
above report is the first that
has been published. Col.
Spencer was one of the big
shareholders of the Taylor
Mining Co. Up to the present no word has been received
locally as to the extent or
date of operations.
Alice Arm Properties
Sold in Vancouver
Although the summer season has
not yet commenced, a keen interest
is being taken in Alice Arm mining
properties in Vancouver and southern cities.
A. McGuire returned on Monday
from a short business trip to Vancouver, and during his stay in the
south he disposed of three different
properties.
The three properties comprise
the Eagle, Le Roi and Silver Cord
groups.
The Eagle is situated on Haystack mountain, near the LaRose
mine, and comprisesi'our claims. It
is about 3000 feet from the Dolly
Varden railway, and lies at au elevation of about 1700 feet.
The ore veins on the property
vary from 4 to 30 feet in width.
They have been crosscut in 13 different places and stripping has also
been done. The ore carries galena,
argentite silver and some copper.
Development work will shortly
commence on the Eagle. The first
work being, the building of a large
cabin.
The Le Roi group is situated
about 12 miles from Alice Arm, on
the North-east fork of the Kitsault
River. It comprises 8 claims,
and is located in one of the most
promising mining regions of the
camp. Assays from samples have
given returns from 17 to 240 ozs.
silver per ton.
The Silver Cord of 2 claims is
also situated on the North-east
fork and is about six miles from
Alice Arm. A good pack trail is
available to the property.
The principal vein on this property is over 50 feet wide, and well
defined in or on the contact of schist
and altered diorite or greenstone,
and traceable for almost|the entire
length of two claims. This big
body of ore has given values of
$8.00 and $10.00 per ton. It is expected that when depth lias been
attained that values will considerably increase.
These three properties have been
purchased by W. G. MoMorris of
Vancouver. He originally organized the La Rose Mining Co. and
is a well known mining man of
Vancouver.'
Fire Narrowly Averted Alice Arm
The Anglican Church narrowly
escaped destruction from fire on
Sunday morning, when the attic
caught fire, due to defective stove
pipe. Wm. Burke was the first on
the scene and his prompt action
saved the building from being
destroyed.
Badmington Popular

The re-election of all officers of
the Anyox Community League, at
their recent annual meeting, is indeed gratifying. This result clearly defines the fact that the officers
of the League have given the members satisfaction, and it eloquently
shows that the good management
attained last year has been appreciated by the members. It also
emphatically determines that good
judgement has been shown in discussing problems that has arisen,
and that no single one holds any
malice against another on account
of non-agreement of certain points
while being discussed. The present council was the most smooth
running that has yet sat in office.
The best of good feeling prevailed,
and consequently, good results
were attained which otherwise,
would not have been the case had
constant bickering been the chief
business at the meetings. This
happy state of affairs will again be
the case this year, which greatly
assists the secretary in his manifold
duties, and which will again add
materially to the popularity of the
League.
We frequently hear, both in the
press and from public speakers,
criticism regarding the non-enforcement of a number of our laws,
especially the laws regarding the
sale of liquor. We also hear the
same thing from individuals in our
everyday life, but although an enormous amount of energy is wasted
in idle talk, no one takes any public acticn to help remedy this laxity.
It does not matter what. Act is
passed by the legislature, if the big
majority of the people are against
enforcement it is impossible for the
law to be strictly enforced. Moral
conditions in any town in British
Columbia are mainly as the majority of the residents desire them to
be.
Britannia Company Had Good
Copper Output Last Year
Britannia property of Howe
Sound Co. in 1925 sent to mill
994,113 tons of ore averaging 1,65
per cent copper and 0.17 ounces
silver a ton, from which were recovered 143,517 ounces of silver
and 29,208,580 pounds of copper,
so that the ore yielded $4.39 a ton
in recovered metals. This compares with 843,987. tons in 1924,
averaging 1.8 per cent, copper and
.017 ounce silver a ton, from which
were recovered 125,687 ounces of
silver and 26,398,539 pounds of
oopper, ore yield being $4.32 a ton
in recovered metals.
All that totters is not old.
Californian Publication
Speaks Well of B. C.
The following article appeared
in the Southwest mining News
published in Los Angeles. It
shows that our American cousins
are alive to the vast possibilities of
the mining industry of B. C. This
is the kind of publicity that obtains results.
"The mining industry of British
Columbia is in better position than
at any previous time in its history
due in very large measure to the
fact that initiative of the individual
is encouraged . and every possible
governmental aid extended to those
who endeavor to increase the output of the province. There the
small operator and the prospector
are classed among most valuable
citizens, just so long as they conduct their efforts honestly. When
they do not, the criminal laws are
set in motion, without delay and
without respecting persons, and
prosecution is prompt and entirely
to the point. As a result, the industry is conducted upon a cleaner
basis than in any state on this side
of the international line, where
foolish, unjust, destructive and
sumptuary laws have abrogated
constitutional rights and paralyzed
the spirit that must be encouraged
!f the mining industry is to prosper.
Last year, Canada—and that
means British Columbia—produced
ten per cent of the world's lead
and seven per cent of its zinc from
the great plant of Consolidated
Mining & Smelting Co. at Trail.
By far the greater part of that
output was derived from the Sullivan mine in the East Kootenay.
owned outright by the smelting
company. There is unanimity of
opinion that this is the greatest
property of its kind in the world
and it is very certain that for many
years to come—surely many decades—it will continue to keep the
province in the front rank of producers of those metals."
Last Year's Wheat Crop
Second in History
Canada's wheat crop of 416 million bushels in 1925 was the second
largest in her history, and much
more than in 1921. Canada is now
the world's chief wheat exporter,
and holds the key to the food supply of the world. Canada's average wheat yield for 23 years, of
17.8 bushels, heads all countries;
the United States being next with
14.1; Argentine, 10.6; Russia, 9.4.
Canada's wheat crop value for 1925
of $1,230,500,000, was 235 millions
over 1924,

ALICE   ARM   AND   ANYOX   HERALD,   Saturday,   March   6,   1926
Copper Export Co. Plans
to Raise Price
Formation in tlie United States
of a Oopper Export Association
with the view of controlling and
stabilizing conditions in the foreign
markets, is likely to have a beneficial effect on the mining of the
brown metal in British Columbia.
Representatives of practically all
American producers, including
those from custom smelter companies and some .Etfrt^/oan and South
American.operators sat in on the
I discussions preliminary to the formation of the association.
It is regarded as possible to raise
th*! price of copper about one oent
I it pound by the operation of such
an association, from 15 1-4 to 15 1-2
cents being the new prices suggested as likely.
Notwithstanding that for the
past two years world's consumption of copper has been greater
than world production price of
copper averaged only 13 1-4 cents
a pound delivered in 1924, and  14
11-2 cents in 1925.
With a price of 15 1.-2 cents a
j pound, 10  per cent,   more copper
; would be recovered from practically
I all ore'bodies now being operated
I than  is economical  to save  with
| price of copper averaging less than'
[ 14 cents a pound.
An increase of one cent a pound
pwnnici represent a gain to the in-
"dustry in British Columbia of
$750,000. The 1925 copper production in this province was approximately 80,15,fi,000 pounds,
and it' there is an increase in price,
such as is suggested, coupled with
the  normal auntr1  increase,   the
I production, of the current year may
j reach the 100,000,000 pound mark.
Where Canada Leads
The bankers' Trust Company of
ItNew York says that Canada is the
I inly country where income per
liapita is now greater than before
■she war, having risen from $250 to
K251, while those of Great Britain
l.nd the United States have fallen.
I  Canada's death rate is one of the
lowest in the world.
Hints for Basketball
Players
"Get rid of the ball!" is good advice, because basketball is a teamwork game, boys. The ball invites
trouble and many games are lost
because the ball is held too long
before passing. The short, ( fast
passes are one of tho most interesting features of the game.
Holding the ball will be eliminated if tlie quick pass game is played
but it moans that the players will
have to "keep loose" from a guard
and keep moving, Pass the ball
in such a way that your player can
reach it before theopponent—if possible, so your man is between the
ball and his opponent.
Pass it also in a 'way that the
player may make his next move
quickly, without awkwardness. Do
not pass it in such a way that time
must be lost in catching, or so that
the one who receives it must slow
up to get it.
Tho two handed snappy pass is
better than the one-handed pass.
It ensures accuracy and can he
made more quickly since the ball
can be received and passed on with
tlie same motion. It is passed
with a wrist and elbow movement
from the chest.
A one-handed pass may be made
longer and with greater force, but
the quick pass is far more in use.
If there is a real good chance to
use this long pass do not hesitate
to' do so. Do not let the long pass
become a habit, however.
