Colts Hold Beach Down
To a 2-0 Win On
You couldn't ask for nicer baseball than was dished up last Sunday
in the pitching duel between Ferguson and Mclnnes. These two
southpaws worked to perfection.
The Beach nicked Mclnnes for one
hit, and the Colts got to Ferguson
for three. The two runs credited
to the Beach came from errors that
proved costly for the Red Caps.
Errors that have marked the season's play so far, were not as
abundant as usual, but the large
attendance got their action out of
these. McColl was absent from
the Faulkner ranks. This brand of
ball deserves the support of all the

Anyox Battlers Provided
Many Thrills For
Sport Fans
Easily the best fight card ever
staged in Anyox, took place in the
Gymnasium on Friday the 9th.
tinder the auspices of the Community League. There was a good
crowd; the accommodation was
excellent, and the whole affair was
well managed. All the scrappers
mixed it freely, and handed out
fare whioh was entirely to the
liking of the fans.
In the main bout, Deeth vs.
Windle, the latter got a well-earned
decision, the bout ending in a technical knock-out in the sixth round.
Deeth battled gamely aud cleverly
and showed a greatly improved
style over his previous appearance
in the local arena. The judges
were R. Gale and W. Patterson,
and Dr. G. James was timekeeper.
The fights were under the capable
control of J. Coggins.
A smart exhibition bout between
Eddie Phillips and Jock Watson
proved a good opeiier, and the scrap
between the Britannia Kid and
Charlie Beck ended in a draw.
Tiger Boulter, whose smiling face
entirely belied his name, mixed it
freely with Tommy Demarco for
four rounds. These lads were well
matched and showed lots of action,
and the bout ended in a draw.
Bert Boud and Tommy Graham,
both of Vancouver, next met in a
four-round decision match, aud
gave a good exhibition, whioh ended in Boud's favor. Graham started off well but faded somewhat
after the second round, taking
much punishment from au aggressive and clever opponent.
The main bout provided some
real thrills. Deeth, who weighed
in at 138, and Windle, who scaled
143, had previously met at Prince
Rupert, Windle earning the decision on that occasion. The local
lad forced tha fight from the start,
and was eager and willing to trade
punches all the time, while Windle
showed superior ring tactics and
kept a oool head throughout. In
the first round, honors were even
aud also in the second until just
before the gong, when a right to
the head sent Deeth down on one
knee. Coming baok in the third
round. Deeth went strongly after
his opponent, clever footwork and
real boxing resulting. A stiff left
to the jaw sent Deeth down for the
count of nine. In the fourth round
Windle's oool and masterly style
began to tell, though Deeth's vital-
ty and cleverness stood him iu
good stead.   A severe punch on the
Standing of Shares of Toric
Mines Co. Explained
The question of the value of the
shares of the old Toric Mines Co.
Ltd. is often discussed by people in
this district. Such a question appeared in a current issue of the
Financial News, Vancouver, and
the reply published in that paper is
as follows:
' 'Toric Mines holds 750,000 shares
in Torbrit Mining Co. Ltd. representing a one-quarter interest in the
property known as the Toric mine
consisting of four claims covering
98 acres on Kitsault River, 18 miles
from Alice Arm. Control of the
Torbrit is held by Britannia Mining
and Smelting Co. Ltd. which formed this subsidiary as a holding
company for the Toric, Wolf,
Dolly Varden and other holdings in
the Kitsault River District. Chief
values are in silver with lead and
gold values as well. While the
outlook is improved somewhat by
the recent increase in the price of
silver it is believed that resumption
of operation will not be considered
until silver stabilizes at a still higher level. Development at "Toric
was continued up to April 1930 and
results were described by Dr.
Mandy, resident government engineer for the district, as very encouraging. There is very little
trading in the shares, most of the
holders apparently holding in anticipation of improved conditions."
C.  N. Steamship Schedule
The summer schedule of the
Canadian National Steamships will
commence next week. Tbe Prince
Rupert or Prince George will arrive
at Anyox on Friday evening June
23rd. at 10 p.m. instead of Wednesday. This schedule will be continued during the summer months.
Due to Sickness among the players, the game scheduled for Monday
last between the Celts and Rangers
had to be postponed. It will, however, be picked up at a later date.

surveyor of this district for many
years is at present engaged in surveying the mining properties of the
Reward Mining Co. near Barkerville.
head sent him to the mat towards
the end of the session. In the fifth
and sixth rounds Windle easily had
the edge, but could not get in the
knock-out blow for which he
watched and waited. It was a
fast and interesting scrap, with
both boys in the pink of condition
and willing to give the fans a real
showing. The A. C. L. are to be
congratulated in providing a memorable evening's entertainment.
Beach Baseballers Trim
Cubs By 15 to 6
The Mine Cubs fumbled their
way through seven innings last
Friday that netted the Beach boys
fifteen runs and gave them their
third straight victory. Neither
team was so hot in the field, the
errors totalling fourteen. Lewis
and Ballentyne helped the boys fatten their batting averages when the
Beach got eleven and the Cubs
nine hits. George Allen, the hardhitting Beach infielder, continued
his batting streak and looks good
for League honors.

Celts Win From Mine
By Narrow Margin
The game between the Celts and
Mine on Thursday the 8th. ended
in a win for the Celts by 3-2.
There were a number of changes in
the line-up of each team, the Mine
working in some new players, all of
whom made good showings. Up
to half time the Mine held down
the Scotsmen with a two-goal lead,
but on the resumption the Celts
came back strong and made the
score two all. Both teams tried
hard for the winning counter, and
it was not until the last few minutes
that the Celts turned the trick,
being awarded a penalty kick and
Horner making no mistake in sending it in. A few warm evenings
would see some good crowds to
witness these games, in which keen
interest is being taken.

The Economic Conference
And Its Local Effect
The eyes of the world are
turned toward the World Econom
ic Conference now in session at
London, including the people of
Anyox and Alice Arm. The de
cisions reached at the conference
will have a direct result on the
lives of everyone in this district,
If the conference is a success and
world trade increases, higher prices
for copper will result, and every
one in Anyox will be happier. If
the nations of the wprld accept
bi-metallism and place silver on a
parity of 16 or 20 with gold, Alice
Arm will boom; a large payroll
will result and everyone will again
display their old-time pleasant
smile. If the conference fails to
achieve any tangible results the
future will be dark indeed, not
only for all of us in this district,
but everyone throughout the world.
That the leaders of the world's
nations realize the gravity of the
present situation is shown by the
fact that sixty-six nations are represented at the conference. If
they meet each other with a give-
and-take attitude, many problems
that retard world trade can be adjusted. If, however, the old blustering and threatening, mistrust and
jealousy is indulged in no substantial good can be attained. We
believe much good will result from
the Conference. It is unthinkable
that the nations will break up the
conference without righting the
wrongs that confront mankind. If
such, however, was the case and
things allowed to drift, it would
mean the breakdown of our present form of civilization in the near
future. The world's statesmen
realize this. That is why the
conference \ was called and that is
why a solution to our present problems must be solved.
New Money Pours Into
B.C. For Development
Of Mines
British Columbia gold stocks at
Toronto and Vancouver are up to
high levels on the standard issues,
carrying with them other stocks
lesser known but actively traded
in. Every new list of B. C. companies contains new gold mining
ventures, and optimism has broken
through listless depression trading
to make new ground on all listed
issues. It is fair to say lhat little
new development has taken place
at the mines in the same period, so
that buying is largely the measure
of an awakening confidence in thei
issues, together with influx of outside capital to seize on B. C. opportunities.
The final test of a mine is what
comes out of the ground, and this
will eventually control the worth
of the different B. C. ventures.
Most of the present buying appears
to be on account of international
forces bearing on the gold values
in currency, anticipating some fu
ture move which would make gold
more valuable. Whatever the
cause, the effect has been a tremendous stimulation in B. C, which is
overflowing into other lines with
some resulting benefit all round.

Rocky Mountains Are Ideal Holiday Land
eauty unrivalled, health-giving altitudes, all the
 i comforts that modern ingenuity can devise and
"something to do" all the time await the army of
travellers from all over the world, which annually
invades the glorious Canadian Rockies through the
Banff Springs Hotel and the Chateau Lake Louise.
These stately up-to-date hostelries, which open on
May 15 and June 1, respectively, are not only key-
points to the most beautiful mountain territories in
the world, but are, themselves, located in setting* of a
beauty which has to be seen to be truly appreciated.
On the main line of the Canadian Pacific Railway,
which owns and operates them, they are equipped
not only to be "homes from home" to the travelling
public and holiday-seekers in the generally accepted
sense, but to furnish entertainment for their guests in
many and varied ways.  Auto drives, trail-rides, boating,
fishing, swimming, golf, tennis, hiking and mountaineering,
to say nothing of the famous Indian Days and the Highland
Gathering, are all part of programs which yean of experience
have brought to perfection. Experts in all lines are in attendance
to be of service to the hotels' guests and real cowboys, red-coated
"Mounties" and true Stoney Indians lend color to a hundred
varVrons of uniquely picturesque scenes.  There is never a dull moment at
Eaiia or Lake Louise. There is something for every taste and the rounding
off of full days by dancing in cool and spacious ball-rooms, to smart orchestras, is not the least of the attractions offered.

"A Farewell To Arms"
With Helen Hayes, Gary Cooper,
Adolphe Menjou. This Paramount
Picture, adapted from Ernest Hemingway's world-famous story, tells
of two who began in passion's
reckless abandon, with a love that
grew until it heeded neither shame,
danger nor death. It is the inspiring record of two souls that were
lost for love's sake. Into the giant
tapestry of a world in turmoil is
woven the most tumultuous romance
yet written or screened. As you
read it in the book, so you will see
it on the screen. Splendid acting
and thrilling scenes make this the
most exciting picture you've seen.
"Skyscraper Souls"
This Metro picture features
Warren Williams, Maureen O'Sul-
livan, Anita Page, and Norman
Foster. It is the story of a man
whose life's accomplishment is the
building of a gigantic skyscraper—
his ambitions, failings, loves, passions—the power of his name and
the shallowness of his character.
There's drama, romance, comedy,
spectacle, 1 aman interest and flam-
buoyant sex. The audience goes
into the stock market, watches
shares soar to heights and drop like
plummets. Lavishness in settings
keeps this picture two steps ahead
of the parade. From Faith Baldwin's famous story "Skyscraper
Souls" that ran in the Cosmopolitan
some time ago. A picture for
everyone—see it Tuesday.
