Simmond's Cup Given
to Gophers at Dance
The ladies of the local basketball
teams wound up their successful
season by putting on a basketball
dance in the Recreation Hall on
Friday April 23rd. The Hall gave
one the impression that.this was
an impromptu affair, as far a decorations were concerned, but considerable pains and forethought was
soon noticeable by the tasty supper
provided, which the ladies
provided themselves, and the music
given by Pynns Orchestra was
enjoyed by all.
At this dauce the Simmond's
[■Cup was presented to the captain
I of the winning team by Mr. Fricker
I with a few well chosen remarks,
land was received by Mr. S. Stew-
lart captain of the Gophers Team,
[who replyed in a most creditable
■ manner. Dancing was enjoyed
Ifrom 9 p.m. until 2 a.m.
Alice Arm Bean Supper
Proves Attractive
Recreation Hall Monday May 10.
|Wm. Hart Again Re-elected
Librarian of Mine Club
For the ninth consecutive year
Bill Hart becomes the secretary of
jthe Mine Library, as a result of au
election by ballot this week; when
[he beat his opponent at  the polls,
iy a majority of 69 votes.   It is so
many years that an election has
aken plaoe, that the event created
lie    keenest    interest—members
jioming up from underground dur-
ng the noon hour and hurrying to
ote, although dressed in "diggers."
he Library upon the hill is popularly known as a "Godsend,"  and
Id timers are so used to Bill Hart
,s being a part of the institution,
lhat speculation as to his re-election   easily  savored   the    result.
[Nobody oould do better" was the
■pinion of his supporters.
The good old fashioned bean
supper, given by the Willing
Workers of the Anglioan Churoh
Sunday Sohool last Saturday was
an unquestionable success, viewed
from any angle.
Those rich dark- brown tasty
little beans were there in profusion,
supplemented by salads, Boston
bread, white bread, cakes etc while
vases of flowers decorated the tables
and artistically arranged green'ery
adorned the walls. A bean supper with all the frills, and the
cuisine of a pity restaurant.
The steady stream of customers
kept the waitresses busy from 5
p.m. until 7.30, when by that time
everyone's needs of the inner man
had been amply provided for.
The sum of $28.35 was realized,
after all expenses had been paid,
which was very satisfactory.
Mrs. N. Fraser, superintendent
of the Sunday School, was the
organizer, and she was assisted iu
the cooking by Mrs. G. Bruggy
and-Mrs. Al. Falooner. The waitresses were: Mrs. E. Ness and
Mrs. 0. Evindson; Mrs. Wm. Cummings was cashier, and Mrs. J.
Graham assisted in the kitchen.
Numerous ladies also provided
oakeS and assisted in various ways
toward the success of the supper.

The secretary was glad to state
that the finances of the Club were
satisfactory, they were now out of
debt, aud had a small sum to their
oredit.
It was decided to reduce the
membership fee to $8.00 instead of
$10.00 whioh was the fee last year.
Family tickets will be $10.00.
It was also decided to repaint
the court.
A communication from the B. C.
Lawn Tennis Association was read,
extending an invitation to the
local club to join the association.
No decision, however, was reached,
but will be decided later by the
executive committee.

E. MOSS, Editor and Publisher.
The Daily Province in their
issue of April 22nd. published an
eight page mining edition. The
whole was composed of well written articles, dealing with mining
operations throughout the province
and was profusely illustrated.
Included in the articles, was a
very instructive one written by H.
F. Kergin M. L. A. in which he
portrayed the mining industry of
the Atlin constituency, including
the Alice Arm district.
A half page article, written by
• J. S. Williamson, relative to mining operations at Anyox since the
Hidden Creek mine was first staked
was a feature of the edition. Mr.
Williamson showed himself conversant with conditions at Anyox, and
the history of the camp was very
interesting. He also showed how
the people of the province benefitted as a whole from the operation
of the Hidden Creek mine.
The publishing of a supplementary mining edition is a new departure for the Vancouver Province.
It clearly shows that the people as
a whole are commencing to realize
the importance of a prosperous
mining industry. Newspapers publish news that the public desire, and
the Province is alive to the situation. We are pleased to see the
Province stepping out, and hope
that similiar mining editions will be
more frequent in the future than in
the past.

Owners of zinc properties in
this district can find a ready market for their concentrates, if they
can obtain finances to equip their
property with a mill. Belgian
and Welsh smelting companies are
eager to accept supplies of zinc or
lead concentrates. California is
taking advantage of this opportunity.
The San Francisco Examiner of
April 11th, states that the Bully
Hill camp, Shasta County is shipping its entire output of 50 tons
daily to Antwerp.
ands of people living in Canada
really believe that if they were
living in the United States, all their
troubles would be over, and peace
and happiness would be theirs.
They have visions of hundreds of
thousands of people clamoring to
gain admittance to this land of
promise. They believe that tens
of thousands are denied admittance
each year, since the quota law was
passed. An analysis of immigration
figures for the first seven months of
the present quota year, by the U.
S. A. National Industrial Conference board shows a net loss in
common laborers of 8,797, compared with a net loss of 21,245
for the same period last year.
The bulk of immigration is from
Canada and Mexico, the figures
reveal, with Great Britain, Ireland,
and Scandinavian countries supplying less than their quota allowances. While 2,714 Italians, a
great deal less than the quota
allowed, entered the seven-month
period, 21,758 left America for
Italy.
The above figures prove that
the stories circulated of the tremendous rush of the rest of the world
to get into the United States are
false, and that the people of Canada have been misinformed. For
those you have the willingness to
work and progress, Canada is
better than any country in the
world. We have the space, the
resources, and the people,(the best
on earth) arid boundless opportunities exist for those who take advantage of them. Instead of
yearning for the light green of other
fields, we should scrutinize the dark
green vendure of our own fields,
and bend our energies in building
up a country equal or superior in
population to our southern neighbours.

Marmot Metals Mining
Co. Commence
Operations
The Mai-mot Metals Mining Co.
who own the Montana property
on the Marmot river at Stewart
will re-commence operations on
May 1st. ''Mr. Angus McLeod,
who was in charge of operations
last year, will again till the same
position.
In the Montana, the Marmot
Metals have one of the most prom-
|,ising properties in the whole Stewart district, development work
carried out last year, added new
ore ledges in addition to those
already known to exist, and this
year's development work will considerably enhance the value of the
property.
The management of the company
is one of the soundest iu the province, and included in directorate
are some of the outstanding men
of the province, noted for their
integrity and sound business principles. The directors are: Dr. II,
E. McKechnie, Vancouver; B. S.
Heistermaii, Victoria; C. W. Warren, Victoria; Angus McLeod,
Stewart; H. W. M. Rolston, Stew-
I art.
Mr. Goo. Clothier in  his Suni-
I mary of mining operations, commenting on the Marmot Metals Co.
said: "The management of the'
company is sound and the prospects
of developing a small property are
good."
It has been decided by the ven-
Pdors of the property that they en-
crow their shares for an additional
| one and two j'ears. This, what
can be termed re-escrow of the
vendors' stock,- is 'conclusive proof
. of the faith of the original owners
in the future of the property, and
I the determination to make a mine.
Particularly is this the case when
it is realized that they took stock
iu total payment for the property,
and are thus banking entirely on
its future, denying themselves the
privileges accorded the ordinary
shareholders who are at will, able
to sell their holdings. On these
grounds it can be truly said that
the vendors of Marmot Metals are
baking, if any exists, a greater risk
(iihan they ask of the shareholders.
B. C. Population is on
The Jump
British Columbia's population''
has shown a remarkable growth
since the census of 1.921, according
to figures compiled by government
officials on the basis of school population.
The total population of the province, set at 524,000 in the census, ie
on the edge of the 600,000 at the
present rate of growth, it is estimated.
The present population is conservatively estimated at 587,000. This
figure is reached by multiplying
the school population by six, a calculation based on the average ratio
of school attendance to total population iu recent years. This would
be a growth of approximately 15,-
000 a year since the hist census,
and another year's gain on this
basis would make the total population over 600,000.
lUggenheims Negotiate
for Stewart Property
At a largely attended meeting ofthe
iihareholders of Victoria Mines Ltd.,
ield in Victoria, the action of the
lirectors in negotiating a dear with
lames L. Freeburn M. E., of Seattle,
ivas ratified. Under the terms of the
leal Mr. Freeburn will make an exuin-
nation of the property with the
jbject of putting it into production at
,n early date.
The Victoria adjoins the Dunwell on
he north and is believed to carry tho
xtension of the Dunwell vein system.
Ir. Freeburn was general mauager of
:ie famous Chichagof gold mine in
nithwestern Alaska during the time
liat it paid $8,000,000 in dividends.    -
(It is reported from Victoria that Mr.
reeburn represent the Tacoma Smel-
>r, interests, otherwise the Guggen-
pims; that the mine is to be worked
once, the ore shipped to Tacoma
lid 40 per cent of the profits paid to
]ie Victoria Mines Oompany.
Radio Industry Consumes
Large Amount Copper
The radio industry has more than
doubled its consumption of copper
during the last two years and is now
approximating 10,000,000 lb. a year,
according to the Copper and Brass
Research Association.
From an average of 2 1-2 lb. per set in
1921 and 4 lb. in 1925, copper consumption has been increased to 6 Id. per set
through a long series of refinements
and installations, tlie association report shows. ■ Among these improvements are tlie greater numberof tubes,
refinements in circuit design, use of
brass for panels and the adoption of
Shielding or lining forthe interior of
cabinets, so that installations are completely enclosed in metal.
Brass panels represent increased
copper consumption of from 1-2 to 2
lb. per set, and theshieldingsadd from
1. to 4 lb. of copper per set.
Tin Being Recovered From
Sullivan
The Consolidated Mining and Smelting Co. of Canada is recovering from
one-half to two tons of tin, in the form
of cassiterite, per day, as a table byproduct from its Sullivan mine ore,
and is setting it aside for future treatment. A number of small ingots of
tin have been made from the mineral
in the company's labatory. The
recovery is of much interest, as this is
the first time tin has been recovered
locally.

A clergyman gave out the hymn, "I
Love to Steal Awhile Away," and the
deacon who led the singing began
"I love to steal—"but found he had
pitched the note too high.
Again he began: "I love to steol—"
but this time it was too low. Once
more he tried: "I love to steal—" and
again got the pitch wrong.
After the third failure the minister
said, "Observing our brother's propensities, let us pray."
