[Appeal (or Funds Meets with
Great Response
The Alice Arm branch of the
Royal Bank closes its doors today,
and its business is being transferred
to the Canadian Bank of Commerce
at Anyox.
The branch was opened during
the days when the Dolly Varden
was fiouring out its high grade.
Numerous other properties wgre
operating and continued activity
was anticipated by the residents of
the town.
The Dolly Varden dosed down,
and several other properties followed suit. During the following
years the mining industry of the
town was marking time. The
Bank remained open expecting
each year that the Dolly Varden
would again operate. As this has
not yet occurred the officials of the
Royal Bank have decided to close.
It is regettable that they have
arrived at this decision, especially
at the present time, as the outlook
for mining is more promising than
since the Dolly Varden closed, and
it is probable that a considerable
number of men will be employed
at the various mines during the
coming summer, and it is almost
certain that this number will be increased each successive year.
During the past few years a
number*of Canadian bank£ have
gone into liquidation, and others,
who found themselves in straightened circumstances, have been absorbed by the stronger banks, and
consequently the keen competition
prevalent a few years ago, has, to
a large extent been eliminated.
It is the present day polioy to
avoid unprofitable competition.
During the last few years a large
number of unprofitable branches
have been closed down, especially
in towns where too many, banks
were doing business to afford a
profit for all.
Arrangements are made whereby
one bank will close down in a certain town, where two banks are
doing business, thus leaving the
field to one concern. The other
bank will do the same thing in
another town. This policy gives
each bank an open field. Each
does as much business, with 50 per
cent less overhead expense.
The Royal Bank is leaving the
Alice Ann field to the Canadian
Bank of Commerce, who are closing
in another town, leaving the Royal
Bank in control. This explains
why the Alice Arm bank has been
closed.
The residents of Anyox were
awakened from their slumber on
Sunday morning at 4 a.m. by
the shriek of the fire alarm. A
fire having been reported at the
Cabaret on the west side of the
smelter. It is reported that the
son of F. Lew Lun was the first to
raise the alarm. A volunteer fire
squad was quickly organized under
Fire Chief Martin, but owing to
the distance to be covered the fire
had got a firm hold on the building
by the time they arrived and as the
water service at this point is inadequate for a fire of this kind their
task was hopeless. The roof of
Lew Lun's store started to scorch
with the heat and it was thought
necessary to remove some of the
more valuable merchandise from
the store for safety. It is regretted
that most of this stock was spoilt
by the weather. No lives were
lost, but the Cabaret building was
an entire loss.
Assistant Mine Superintendent Leaves Anyox
Mr. and Mrs. W. J. Coulter and
family were passengers on Monday's boat, for the south, Mr.
Coulter has severed his connections
with the Granby Co. as assistant
mine superintendent whioh position
he has held for a number of years.
He has been appointed mine super-
intendant for the Pecos mine, Vally
Ranch, New Mexico. A very
pleasant party was staged on his
behalf at the Mine on Saturday
February 20th. at which all his
friends gathered to wish him success in his new undertaking.
Union Church Holds a
Special Service for
Grandparents
Sunday last was Grandparents'
Day in the Anyox United Church.
Iu spite of the snow and sleet, quite
a number of the grandparents
attended the Evening Servioe,
which was especially arranged for
them. The hymns and Scripture
readings were the old favorites. Mr.
W. R. Murdock rendered a solo.
The Minister preached the sermon, and took for his subject:
"The Abiding Presence of God." In
these days when great emphasis of
the Churoh is upon the development
of child life by the great programme of Religious Education we
are liable to forget those who have
gotten well on in the journey of
life. Yet we have much to learn
from them. The years have
brought to them a "richness of experience, a ripeness of character, a
breadth of charity and a mellowness
of disposition." All young people
would do well to cultivate their
friendship in order to imbibe these
finer characteristics.
A Service of this type affords
the people an opportunity to show
their honor and respect for the
grandparents of the community and
it is hoped to observe grandparents'
day annually.

Anyox Basketball
Games
Port Simpson Defeat Elks
A surprise was sprung in basketball circles on Monday, when a
basketball team from Port Simpson arrived in town looking for a
game. It was decided that the
Elks should play the visitors at the
Beach gymnasium at 8 p.m. The
games at the Mine Hall being
cancelled.
The visitors1 started the game
with a rush, and secured an early
lead, which they increased as the
half progressed. At half-time the
count stood 17-9 in favor of Port
Simpson. Upon the resumption of
play the Elks settled down to overcome the lead and came within two
points of doing it, but the final
whistle blew with Port Simpson on
the long end of a 25-23 score. For
the Simpson team a little forward,
Sankey shot baskets from any
angle, scoring Iii points. All of
the visitors checked closely and
played tine combination at times.
For the home team J. Mitchell
raided the loop for 10 points. < H.
Downs played a whale of a game
at guard.
Pqrt Simpson: Sankey-16, Alex-
cee-6, Mather, Jobnson-1, White-2^.
Wesley, Grim.
Elks: Hogben-3, Sheen, Peters.
J. Mitchell-10, B. Mitchell-2, Bun-
taiu-2, Downs 6.
There were three games scheduled to be played at the Beach
gymnasium on Friday night but
the Store team withdrew from the
League, so the Store-Concentrator
tilt was called off. In the High
School-Bluebii'ds game the High
School girls forfeited the game
but using A. Scott of the mine
team played an exhibition game
with the Bluebirds which resulted
in an easy win for the latter, 10-2.

The Senior contest which resulted
iu a win for the Elks 29-27 was
the fastest and cleanest game
played up to date in Anyox League
games. The Gophers got away to
a good start, but the Elks rallied
and the half ended, 15-14 in favor
of the Gophers. Immediately at
the beginning of the second half
the Elks secured a narrow lead
which they held until the end of
the game. Staines and B, Mitchell
were high scorers with 10 points
each. Dupuis for the Gophers and
Downs for the Elks were towers of
strength on the guard line.

E. MOSS, Editor and Publisher.
The Portland Canal News of
Stewart in their issue of February
5th. published a front page article,
over a column in length, dealing
with the activities of the Matilda
property, which is being operated
by the Kitsault River Mining and
Development Co.    The   article
also dealt with mining conditions in
general in the Alice Arm district.
We wish to extend our  appreciation to the editor of the News for
his broad-minded principle, and we
aasure him that his action will be
reciporated by us.    Alice Arm,
Anyox   and Stewart are   three
thriving mining camps situated in
the same mineral zone, and the
progress of any single one stimulates
the growth of the other two.   The
News has, in the past published
mining news relative to the district,
and we have done likewise   in
regard to Stewart mining news, but
a still larger exchange of news
could be effected with benefit to
both districts.
The closing of the Alice Arm
branch of the Royal Bank of Canada came unexpected to everyone.
Although this eventuality has been
mooted for the past three years, it
was expected, that with the assur
ance of increased mining activity
this year, the bank would remain
open until the end of the summer
at least. The chief officials have
however decided to close. They
are removed a long distance from
Alice Arm, and probably do not
realize the big events transpiring.
The loss of the Royal Bank will
not retard our growith one iota,
nor will it cause very much inconvenience to depositors, who can
conduct their banking business at
Anyox without unusual delay.
Saltchuck Palladium Is
Worth $80.00 Per Oz.
Alaska's only palladium mine,
the Saltchuck near Ketchikan, is
now producing about 350 tons of
ore per clay. The mine has been in
production since the fall of 1923, or
since the concentrating plant was
placed in operation. It was mined
on a limited and intermitent scale
before that time.
The Saltohuok's chief metal content, or rather the most valuable
part of the metal content, is a
palladium ore which belongs to the
platinum group. Saltchuck now
produces between 4000 and 4500
ounces of palladium per year, worth
about $80 per ounce. The ore is
concentrated at the mine and
the concentrates are shipped to
Irvingtoii, N. J., for final treatment. Besides palladium, the ore
carries copper, gold, and silver.
Saltchuck is the biggest producer
of palladium ore on the American
continent. Mineralogists who have
visited and inspected southeastern
Alaska believe it is a country likely
to contain many deposits of palladium ore. The Saltchuck is controlled by J. E. Chilberg, former
Seattle banker, who now stays on
the property and manages it.
Other Seattle men are interested.
The fellow who flies into a rage is
generally thrown out.
Little Ada: "Mother, shall I run
out and post this letter?"
Mother: "No, child, certainly not.
It's pouring in torrents, and not fit to
turn a dog out of doors. Let your
father go."    ,

We wish to again impress upon
our readers the desirability of their
forwarding us news items, whenever they have the opportunity.
We are ready at all times to publish news, regarding any public or
semi-public affair, or any news
that may be of general interest to
the community, or also our subscribers on the outside. Send us any
news items you wish published, or
inform our Anyox correspondent
of the fact. If you are a resident
of Alice Arm call and see us. We
spare no effort to carry the news
of all local happenings each week.
Sometimes, however, an event may
occur of which we are ignorant. To
ensure its publication and also
authenticy acquaint us of the fact.
We'll do the rest.
Not only is Canada by far
largest producer of nickle in
world, says a report of the Bureau
of Statistics, but the reserves of
nickle ores are vastly greater than
those of any of her possible competitors and this, together with the
many other ad vantages she possesses, gives her a predominant position in the world's nickle trade that
is well-nigh unassailable. At the
present time theMond Nickle Company account for practically all of
Canada's output—in round figures
some 35,000 short tons, valued at
$19,000,000, containing over 80%.

Tin Is Becoming Scarce
and Price Rising
London Controls Price
The elasticity nf the price   of
rubber is in the keeping with that
physioal characteristic of the com
odity itself.   Will the "cry of  tin"
reach suoh high notes as   to cause
a similar disturbance in  the   tin
market as has been experienced  in
the rubber market?    The United
States is as destitute of tin as it is
of rubber.   Great Britain produces
or controls about 70 per cent of the
world's production of   each, and
London dictates the prioe.
The  world's annual production
I of tin  is about 133,000 tons,   of
which the United States requires
j at least 75,000 tons, or about 57
| per cent, to meet the demands of
commerce.   For many of its uses
there is no known substitute in adequate supply, especially in bronze
! and   solder   aud   oertain   uses   to
■which tin plate is put.    Tin deposits are, limited in extent, known
mines are becoming exhausted, and
the demand for tin is increasing,
The average price of tin in New
York in 1922 was   32 5-10c. per
pound; 1923,   42 6-10c; in 1924,
50 2-10c; and the average for December, 1925,  was 61 6-10c. per
pound.   It is not difficult to believe
that tin eventually may sell much
i higher.—Engineering and Mining

Alberta    Farmers  Turn  to
Dairy Farming
It is estimated that during the
past year 60,000 oases of eggs and
5,000,000 pounds. of poultry were
exported from Alberta to eastern
Canada and the British Isles. It
was only a few years ago that Alberta was a fairly extensive importer of eggs and poultry, but active
campaigns by the provincial government and other interested
bodies have reversed this situation.
How to Save Gasoline
The following paragraph which
is "going tho round'' may prove of
interest to most of the local car
owners. An automobile owner
installed a new-fangled oarburator
that was guaranteed to save 20
per cent in gas. Then he put in
peoial spark plugs that were
guaranteed to save another 20 per
cent of the precious fluid, and an
intake heater to save still another
20 per cent. Next he put in a patented rear axle—to save another
20 percent—retired with a set of
tires guaranteed to save 20 per
cent; refilled his crank case with
oil to increase his mileage 20 per
cent. Now with a fuel economy of
120 per cent, the owner has to stop
every hundred miles and bail out
the gas tank to keep it from flowing
over. With the price pf Fords still
going down, everybody can afford
a car at that rate.
