International   Football
Game Won by
Scotland
Scotland was triumphant over
England in the game played in aid
of the Anyox Band on Friday
evening, with a score of three
goals to nil.
Both sides played  nice football
with the edge slightly in favor of
the  winners,  but not nearly the
I extent as indicated by tho score.
England started with a rush and
|kept the ball in Scottish  territory
for the lirst live  minutes of  play.
I Poor shooting  was all that kept
[them     from    scoring   on   several
occasions.     The   Scots  hit  their
stride, however, and it wasn't long
j until VV. Hunter beat Hunter with
I a shot from well out,  which  took
J an   erratic   twist  just   when   he
I seemed to have it in his hands.
The second goal came about five
I minutes later, when Baker Robert-
Ison gave Buntain a beautiful pass,
jthe latter giving the goalie no
I chance to save. The winning
I goal came ir. the second half, olf
I the boot.of Buntain again.
Evans was the referee. During
fthe fracas, and between showers,
1 the brass band delighted the spec-
I tators with numerous selections.
Teams: Scotland, Hill, Pynn,

Log Carrier Drumrock
Has Interesting
Career
The log carrying barge Drumrock owned by the Hecate Straits
Towing Co. Ltd. arrived in Alice
Arm on Saturday night, June 19,
in tow of their tug "Lome" to load
logs, for the Powell River Co. and
sailed at 7 p.m. on Saturday last
with a cargo, of approximately
900,000 feet. The tug Lome took
Captain Mowatt to Vancouver for
medical treatment while the barge
was loading, he having sustained
injuries to his right leg while at
sea. The barge Bingamon was
brought north on the Lome's
return trip and is now loading logs
for Powell River, and will be followed by the Drumrook as soon as her
present cargo is discharged,
Mr. P. M. Ray, manager of the
Prince Rupert Branch of Hecate
Straits Towing Co. and one of the
owners of the "Drumrook" was in
town superintending the loading
of the barges.
The "Drumrock" was originally
a British four masted ship of this
name, built by Ramage and Fer-
gusson Leith, Scotland and holding
a speed record as a "wind jammer"
during her days. She was later
sold to other British owners and
renamed "Persimmon," afterwards
being sold to the Germans who
used her in the nitrate trade iu
South America and named her
"Helwig Vinneii." She was
interned at Santa Rosario during
the war and was bought by her
present owners from San Francisco
interests, who had bought various
interned vessels, and was equipped
as one of the first log carrying
barges on this coast.
CHALLENGE ISSUED
The baseball team of the Beaoh
Club House lias thrown out a
challenge to the winners of the
General Stores—General Office
game, for a seven innings contest,
the losers to buy a barrel of beer.
Now, here is a sporting offer that
can not be lightly cast aside.

Mine Defeats Smelter
Ball Team by
lRun
Displaying a brand of ball on
both sides, which would be hard to
beat anywhere, tlie Mine managed
to slip over a win against the
Smelter, on Thursday evening last
week, one run to nothing.
Orr and Gordon hooked up in a
pitching duel, with the former
having the edge all the way. Orr
was in splendid form, whiffing
thirteen and allowing one lone
bingle. Gordon fanned five and
was nicked for two safeties. A
sensational stop by Benny Wendel
cut off a sure run in the fifth
rame. The winning marker
came in the last inning when
Harris reached first on a scratch
hit, went to second on a sacrifice,
to third on an infield error, and
scored on a fielder's choice.
Umpires: Olson aud MeLitosh. .

Mining Men Amazed at
Vast Mineral Wealth
The outlook for the mining
industry at Alice Arm was never
brighter than at the present time.
Several properties are already operating, and excellent results have
been attained. It is certain that
several more will be operating
within the next few weeks. A
substantial number of influential
mining engineers, some of whom
represent well known names in
mining circles have recently visited
the camp. They all speak highly
of the phenomenal big ore showings on the surface, and the rich
values of the LaRose and the tremendous ore body of the Torio thoroughly convinced them that the
the camp has a future.
All were surprised at the lack of
publicity the camp had received on
the outside, with such tremendous
potential  wealth lying   dormant.
A publicity campaign has been
instituted by the local branch of
the B. C. Chamber of Mines and it
is expected that this defect will
shortly be remedied,' and at least
one step taken towards a permanent publicity campaign.
F. L. Housley left on Tuesday for
Anyox, after spending several days
at Alice Arm inspecting the timber
of the Granby Co. with a view of
logging it. It is probable that he
will log off the holdings of the
Granby Co. aud if such a course is
decided on, operations will commence this summer.
G. W. Bruggy, accompanied by
his daughter, Kathleen, is leaving
today for Stewart, on a business
trip in connection with the Marmot
Metals Mining Co. in which he is
interested. ALICE   ARM   AND   ANYOX   HERALD,   Friday.   July   2,   1926

The following article is a review
of the copper production of the
world, published in the editorial
oolumns of the Engineering and
Mining Journal Press.
"Copper production in the world
is increasing—slowly it is true, but
none the less steadily. During 1925
more copper was mined than in any
other year, not excepting the war
period; and the rate of production
in April, just passed, established a
new   high   record   for   all    time.
Thanks to unprecedented consump-
sion   by American industry,    no
large stocks are accumulating; and
yet many students of the situation
are convinced that if the aggregate
production were only a little less
than the actual current rate, something like one cent per pound more
could be   realized  on   the   metal.
They argue   that   profits   to  any
individual    company    would    be
greater if it netted 5c.   per pound
on 900,000 pounds instead of 4c.
per pound on   1,000,000   pounds.
They contend also that there would
be no material  difference   in   the
world consumption if copper sold
at 14fc. instead of 13jc. per pound.
So far as mathematics is concerned
this argument admits of no controversy,    As to the effect on consumption, there would be a   theoretical tendency to   restrict it, but
this probably would be serious,
"It is significant that almost
without exception the more important companies could produce
at a rate 20 per cent or more above
their current output. They are
not ready to start an era of ruthless
competition and preoipitate an
economic struggle that could only
result in putting some of them out
of business and inflicting serious
injury to all. The big fellows recognize the fact that from a purely
selfish standpoint restriction of out
put is necessary. Why it is reasonable to ask, if the large producers
as individuals limit their output
to sustain a 13fo. market, do they
not go a step farther and try, at
least, to get 14fc, To put this
theory to the test it would only
have been necessary for the leading
companies to have continued output approximately at the rate of
1924. A number of them followed
this policy to the letter; others
increased their output in 1925 by
from 10 to 20 per cent.
"The situation is precarious, and
will continue to be so long as there
exists equipped capacity to mine,
mill, and smelt 20 per cent more
copper than the world needs.
Fortunately this situation is being
corrected rapidly by the increase in
consumption. One immediate
remedy would be artificial limitation of production by "gentleman's"
agreement. That of course would
be illegal, aud is not to be considered.
"To the companies that have
maintained uniform or nearly
uniform production rates credit is
due. It is likely that they have
felt that this policy would in the
long run make more money than
any other for their individual
shareholders; and yet their action
has helped sustain the market and
they have thereby done a service
to the industry as a whole. Generally speaking, moreover, they are
among those who could survive
successfully a "war" of copper
producers. Without attributing
to the men who direct these companies too much of altruism, it is
fair play to say that they have
done much to bring about the recovery of an industry that was
woefully ill only four years- ago.
Even yet the recovery is not complete. Another year, or perhaps
more, of level-headed nursing on
the part of producers is needed."

Startling Gold Values at
B. C. Silver Mine
Portland Canal News
Last week the News reported a
rumor to the effect that a new
strike had recently been made on
the B. C. Silver. In the light of
authentic information this is not
entirely correct, though from the
standpoint of some sensational gold
values in spots, it might be said to
to be a strike. It appears that a
50-foot winze was sunk in one of
the ore bodies at the north end of
the main level. From the bottom
of the winze, the ore which has a
width of 25 feet was crosscut,
allowing the whole to be of good
commercial grade with a shoot of
high-grade.     In the course of this
. work tho ore was continually
sampled, and some of the samples
ran us high as 167 oz. gold or
$3340 per ton, with satisfactory
silver values. However, these
phenomena) gold values do not
appear   to   he  persistent,  but   to
| occur in pockets, though the whole
body carries good gold and silver
values.    Ore extracted in the course
| of this development is being sacked
and shipped.
.     The management of B. C. Silver
I have had a very difficult geological
problem to work out and the
greatest credit is due both C. A.
Banks and Major C. B. North for
the efficient and determined manner
in which they have tackled what
many others would long ago have
[ given up. A great deal of credit is
also due the English shareholders
for having stuck to their task of
putting up the development money
in the way that they have, and the
reward that now appears to be at
hand will be well earned.
It is expected that 15,000 tons
of concentrates will be shipped by
the Consolidated M. & S. Co.,
Trail, via New Westminster, to
Antwerp during this season.

Sullivan Mine   is  the
World's Biggest
Metal Mine
A semi-annual dividend of $1,-
701,295 was declared June 16 by
the Consolidated Mining & Smelting Company of Canada, payable
July 15, to shareholders of record
June 30th. The dividend is composed of a regular 3 per cent disbursement amounting to $389,259
and a bonus of $3 a share amounting to 11,521,036.
This is the second large dividend
paid by the Consolidated Company
since its Sullivan Mine was gotten
into operation on a large scale. The
lirst was an annual dividend paid
December 15 lust, which consisted
of the regular 3 per cent dividend
with a bonus of $5 a share on the
507,012 shares outstanding. The
first semi-annual dividend for 1926
is therefore at an increased rate of
bonus distribution. Payment of
this dividend will bring the total
disbursed by the company to date
to $13,512,019.
Earnings of the Consolidated
Mining & Smelting Company are
mainly derived from its great Sullivan Mine at Kimberly, B. C. That
property during 1925 and so far
this year has produced more lead
than the state of Idaho, more zinc
than the state of Montana and more
silver than the state of Nevada. It
is recognized as the world's greatest underground metal mine. Production of late has exceeded 3000
tons of ore a day. Its mill at
Kimberly has a present capacity of
3000 tons daily, with an addition
to the plant of 1000 tons daily-
capacity nearly ready to go into
operation.
Premier  Mining   Co.   Pays
Another Huge Dividend
The Premier Gold Mining Co.
has declared another quarterly dividend of $400,000. payable on July
3 to shareholders of record on June
18. This will bring the total dividends up to $8,988,000.

Lode mining has only been in progress for about 25 years, and only about one-half of the Province has
been even prospected; 200,000 square miles of unexplored mineral bearing land are open for prospecting.
The Mining Laws of this Province are more liberal and the fees lower than those of any other Province
in the Dominion, or any Colony in the British Empire.
Mineral locations are granted to discoverers for nominal fees.
Absolute Titles are obtained by developing such properties,  security of which is guaranteed  by
Crown Grants.
Practically all British Columbia Mineral Properties upon which development work has been done
are described in some one of the Annual Reports of the Minister of Mines. Those considering
mining investments should refer to such reports. They are available without charge on appF ation
to the Department of Mines, Victoria, B. C. Reports covering each of the six mineral Survey
Districts are published separately, and are available on application. Reports of the Geological
Survey of Canada, Winch Building, Vancouver, are recommended as valuable sources of information.
Full information, together with Mining Reports and Maps, may be obtained gratis by addressing
