Elks' Flag and Children's
Day Very Successful
The Eleventh Annual Flag and
Children's Day of the Anyox Elks'
Lodge No. 47, was held in the Ball
Park on Monday, and was a notable
success. The sky was cloudless,
the children all happy, and everything passed off without a hitch.
Ice cream, peanuts, lemonade,
and other refreshments dear to the
hearts of the youngsters were consumed in big quantities. Balloons,
fancy caps, toys and flags were
generously distributed, until the
children could carry no more. A
lengthy programme of sports for
boys and girls of all ages was carried out and many surprisingly attractive prizes were awarded.
The day started with a grand
parade from the Elks' Club to the
Ball Ground, headed by the Anyox
band under the leadership of bandmaster J. J. H. Varnes. On arrival
I at the grounds a speech was given
by Mr. Ed. Ashton, historian of the
I Elks' Lodge, who outlined the aims
and objects of the Flag Day celebration, and touched briefly upon
the ideals of the Elks' brotherhood.
The balance of the afternoon was
taken up with sports, the band giving many pleasing selections at intervals. Following are the prize

football between these two northern
towns will be decided once and for
On Tuesday the 25th. the Prince
Rupert All-Stars will reach Anyox,
and will play on the 25th. and 27th.

patronized by big crowds of fans,
who know from their attendance at
the games this season that the
Anyox boys can put up a wonderful
fight against any team Prince Rupert may send.
Tic&ets-admittmgto both games
are 50c. The games will start at
6.30 p.m. prompt. The Anyox
All-star team is as follows: Goal,
Hunter; backs, McDougall, Del
Rio; half-backs, Morrison, Currie,
Williams; forwards, Steve Peel,
Jim Dixon, Horner, MacConnachie,

Telegraph Line Will Be
The government telegraph line
will receive considerable repair
work this summer between Aiyansh
and Anyox. A orew of seven men
left Alioe Arm yesterday morning
in charge of Wm. MacLean. They
will spend two months changing
the line onto new poles between
Aiyansh and Alioe Arm. The old
poles have become too rotten to
carry the line.
A orew of five men in charge of
the resident telegraph operator,
J. C. Studdy, will shortly commence repair work on the line
between Alioe Arm and Anyox.
NeW copper wire will be strung,
connecting up with that done last
year. The work will commence
about six miles from Alice Arm
and continued towards town.
This work will ocoupy one month.

Road Construction Work

was brought to afclose last Saturday, It. isi provable that when
work is resumed it will be under
the government relief work plan.
It is also probable that a number
of unemployed men from Anyox
who registered for relief will be
brought to Alice Arm when construction work is resumed. The
total brought in may number as
high as fifty. Nothing definite,
however, has yet been settled. A
camp will be constructed as near
the work as possible, to house and
feed the men-
Fate was a ltttle unkind to the
Smeller in the League game on
Thursday, the 13th. when the score
was 4-3 in favor of the Celts.

game, beautiful to watch, and were
decidedly unlucky in not equalizing
the score, or even beating their
opponents. Time after time in the
second half they all but got
Steve Peel sent in a lovely shot
which struck the lower part of the
crossbar. Buchanan also tried several, while Buntain was playing the
game of his life. With all three
goals to his credit he still thirsted
for more. Freddie Williams opened the score for the Celts with a
swift one; Horner got the next;
George Allen put in a beauty from
right wing, and Doug. MacConnachie got the fourth. The game
was crowded with clever play, good
attack and sound defence, and was
witnessed by a large crowd.

The slump of copper some
weeks ago to around 7 1 -2 cents
per pound and its apparent inability to rise very much above that
figure is causing concern in copper
producing circles. The present
price is the lowest in history. At
the last conference of copper producers in New York they failed to
agree to a further curtailment of
output. The fact that at the time
of the conference, the scheme of
President Hoover of the United
States for a holiday on international obligations was chiefly due to
no decision being made in regard
to a further reduction of copper
output. It was felt that business
generally would improve and that
a greater demand for copper
would exist. This did not happen
and the producers are still faced
with the problem of elevating the
price of copper to a profitable
level. It was shown at the conference that every curtailment of
output raises the cost of production. The cheapest copper is
produced when a plant is running
at its maximum capacity. It has
been proposed in some quarters
that the copper producers shut
down their plants until the present
surplus has been absorbed. This
method also means a loss. A
large number of men must necess^
arily be employed in order to keep
everything in repair. The chief
objection to this proposal, however
is that the working staffs would
scatter during the shut-down, and
on a commencement of operations
great difficulty would be expert
enced before the same efficiency
would prevail as before the shut
down. It is therefore not very
probable that copper producers
will close their plants. Cause for
the present low price of copper
is blamed to the pegging of the
price at the 18c. level in 1929 and
the early part of 1930. It is
claimed that this high price gave
Britannia Co.  Driving
10,000-Ft. Tunnel
The Britannia Mining Co. have
commenced a big development
programme on its Howe Sound
copper mine. To provide facilities
for handling the entire mine output
at mill elevation, and thereby effect
a considerable economy in mining
osts, a 9x12 ft. tunnel, which wil1
have an ultimate length of 10,000
feet, is now being driven at the
4,100 ft. level. The equipment for
this work includes a four-unit drill
carriage with No. 17 Gardner-
Denver machines, and a 30-h.p.
electrically driven scraper, combined with an ingenious air operated
car-lifting device for "spotting"
It is estimated that the tunnel,
known as "Haulage Extension,"
together with the necessary ore
passes and other connections, will
require two years to complete, and,
in addition to.its primary purpose,
this work will very materially assist
in the development of the downward extension of proven ore bodies
as well as in their further exploration at depth
