Alice Arm Puck Chasers
Battle (or League
Wildcats Still Well In The
High Grade Encountered
On LeRoy Property
Five games were played in the
Alice Arm Hockey League during
the week. Games were played on
Saturday, Sunday, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, and rain on
Thursday brought games to a close.
The biggest surprise of the week
was when the Wildcats, who have
easily vanquished their opponents,
lost two straight games. They lost
to the Timber Wolves on Tuesday
4-3, and the following night the
Tigers slipped a halter on them to
the tune of 5-0.
The games produced some excellent exhibitions of hockey. Some of
the younger players are rapidly
approaching the semi-professional
stage, and now that the rules are
being more closely followed the finer
points of the game are in evidence.
The return of Al. Falconer from
the south has given considerable
strength to the Tigers, who formerly were the weak team. The teams
are now more evenly matched and
some fast exciting games will result
V future.
Unusual interest has been taken J
in the games, and every night the
gallery and sides are packed with
enthusiastic fans who cheer their
favorites to victory or vent their
sarcasm on the opponents.
On Saturday evening the Wildcats and Timber Wolves, mixed
things at a merry pace and for three
hectic periods the result hung in the
balance. The loggers were tireless
in their efforts to down their opponents, but the Wildcats were not to
be denied the fruits of victory and
they added another win to their string
to the tune of 8-4.
On Sunday the Wildcats and
Tigers mauled each other, and again
• the former emerged victorious. The
game was fairly even, but the Tigers
did not seem to possess the art of
placing the puck between the posts
and the Wildcats again climbed
another rung on the ladder of local
hockey fame by the score of 8-2.
The Timber Wolves deserved
both wins for they played aggressive games, and drove the puck for
goal at every opportunity.
Monday evening's game was one
that will go down in local history.
It was a hard bitter struggle for
three periods between the Timber
Wolves and Tigers, at the close of
which the score was 7-7. Fifteen
minutes overtime was played and
the Tigers emerged victorious and
battle scarred by the score 8-7. The
game see-sawed throughout its
entire length, first one team obtaining the lead and then the other.
. Every player threw himself whole
i heartedly into the game, with no
one sidestepping anything. It was
a thrilling game to watch, and still
more thrilling to play. A game
which satisfies everyone.

A nice vein of high grade silver-
lead-zinc ore was enoountered in
the tunnel at the Le Roy mine
during the last week-end. It came
in at the width of six inches, but
soon widened to over a foot. ' It is
massive ore and samples were at
once sent out for assaying.
The whole face of the tuuuel is
iu ore of a secondary grade. The
latest find wns unexpected, and
adds considerably to the average
value of the ore.
The Le Roy is a promising property and the latest find will undoubtedly stimulate development.
In addition to lead silver and zinc
values the ore carries $4.00 gold
per ton.
The tunnel has been driven a
distance of 145 feet and work is
still being carried on.

On Sunday and Monday some 45
visitors arrived from  Kincolith in
their own launches.     The parties

games were over a dance was put
on in the Beach Gymnasium.     The
music was provided by the  Indian
I band.    On Wednesday a band con-
I cert was put on in the Recreation

Good news to British Columbia
in recent reports that bar silver is
back to 60 cents an ounce at New
York. Continuation of the upward
movement, if the market should
lead that way, will have the
effect of stimulating production in
this province and of bringing stocks
of ore from the dumps, where they
have been held by several companies pending the return to higher
Action for a gold standard in
India early last year brought about
a very heavy slump which completely demoralized the industry, particularly at mines where silver was
the principal metal.
On January 8 of last year the
price of silver in New York was
quoted at 68 3-8 cents, and from
that date it gradually sank till on
October 2lst.it was down to
51 1-8 cents. At the latter price
the production of silver was unprofitable. Many of the B. C.
mines were affected and a few of
them ceased shipping ore. At the
same time the operators were satisfied that the prices would be revived
• and they kept on mining and simply
storing the ore. That ore is ready
for shipment any time.
British Columbia produces annually about 7,654,000 ounces of
If there was one thing which
Premier Bruce made quite clear
while he was in the British Columbia Legislature it was that if Canada
is to enjoy the advantages which
she is now enjoying under the provisions of the Canadian-Australian
trade treaty, she must buy more
goods than she at present is buying
from the southern Commonwealth.
The people of British Columbia,
incidentally, were reminded the
other day by The Vancouver
Province that the people of Australia buy from this Dominion goods
to the value of $3.60 per capita
compared with Canada's purchases
from the Commonwealth of only
fourteen cents per capita, that newspaper arguing quite reasonably that
the weakness of the treaty lies in
this country doing all the selling
and little of the buying. The Vancouver journal, of course, is fully
Building Trades Using
Much Larger Amount
of Copper
Perhaps of all the markets that
have shown a substantial increase
in the use of copper and brass,
none can compare with the building industry. Prior to 1921 the
consumption of brass pipe for
plumbing was negligible and the
use of brass or copper pipe for
underground water connection
was practically unknown. The
same was true of copper downspouts, eavestrongh and roof
flashings as well as copper and
bronze window screens and bronze
weather stripping. In 1922, with
a total building volume iu the
United States of $1920,000,000,
the building industry consumed
11)4,000,000 pounds of copper. In
1920, with an estimated building
volume of $5,500,000,000, copper
consumption will increase to at
least 275,000,000 a growth in five
years of 111,000,000 pounds, or 68
per cent.
The recent development of several typos of copper shingles has
materially increased the consumption-of copper in the small house
held. The average house roofed
with copper shingles and fitted
with oopper gutters, leaders and
roof flashings consumes about 600
pounds of copper. It is estimated
that the potential market of copper
shingles is 2,400,000 squares per
year, consuming 48,000,000 pounds
of copper.
That the public is now appreci
ating the merits of copper isshown
by the increased use of sheet copper in the washing machine industry. In 1921 less than 50 percent,
of the washing machines having
metal tubs used copper; in 1926,
probably 95 per cent, of the tubs
will be made of copper, and the
amount of metal used will be

arrangement to British Columbia
and, as The Victoria Times pointed
out the other day,, "is serving this
Province by doing anything it can
to create further interest in the
facilities which the provisions of
the pact contain."
Canadian public opinion is obviously aware that this country got
an excellent bargain when the treaty
was finally agreed to nearly two
years ago. Canadians, therefore
and particularly British Columbians
realize that they would be foolish
to attack it, This was emphasized
when Premier Bruce explained

Slashing Reduction Is
Made In Provincial
Following are a few of the main
features in the budget which Hon.
J. D. MacLean, Minister of Finance
presented to the Legislature
recently, .   .
British Columbia's tax bill will
be cut by at least $525,000, making
a total tax reduction of $1,735,000
under the Oliver Government in
the last four years.
This reduotion, the Minister
announced, will be accomplished
by these far-reaching changes in
the Province's taxation system.
1. A cut in the income tax of
$125,000 a year through an increase in the rebate for a married
person from $1,500 to $1,800 and
for dependents from $200 to $300.
Widows aud widowers with dependent children also will be allowed the same rebate as a married
2. The personal property tax
will be wiped out completely and
in -its place business will pay a
turnover tax oii gross income
which will be alternative to the
income tax and will make taxation
| generally more equjtable.
3. Succession duty taxes will
I be slashed to the extent of $400,-
! 000 by a reduction in rates and
general readjustment of the levy
on estates so that there will be no
discouragement to wealthy people
who want to come to British
JSqnally satisfactory was the
Minister's announcement that the
deductions above set out will be
followed by further similar cuts
next year.
By February 1928 the Province's
wartime financing will have been
completed and the whole of the
provincial debt will have been put
upon a permanent basis and oover-
ed by sinking funds.
The production from the primary industries of the province1
for the ten years ending 1926—
under the Liberal Administration
—was $1,100,000,000 more than in
the previous decade under a Conservative government.
The margin of provincial assets
over liabilities increased during the
last year by $35,921,099.
The minister pointed out that
the gross debt had been .reduced
by $5,130,000. He also hinted for
the comfort of the members and
the satisfaction of the people of the
Province that taxation in British
Columbia, in cities and rural districts, is far lower than in tlie state
of Washington.

VT/'hy pick on me?" says the little fellow, "there
vv are many other things which can interest you
and hold your attention." And so there are, out
after all the native life of the "Isles of the Blest" is
worth a little study, ia it not? Take thia little Ja-
maician tor instance. If you took away his shirt
and his broom handle you would not leave him much
other than a full tummy, yet he is a British subject,
and as such has an opportunity of becoming—well—
of doing pretty well for himself and of gathering
enough of this world's substance to give him comfort
•t least in his later years. He will grow up in a
ramshackle old hut on the edge of the town maybe,
•nd learn to be jealous of his rights as a citizen; and
when he comes to the age of understanding he will
I be more English than the English. As a matter of
fact he will, in all probability, speak at least two
"English" languages. In one of these he might im-
slore you to buy his fruits or lace bark souvenirs or

direct you over the fine road that form a network over the island, and in the other he will
convene with his kind. This language sounds
as foreign as any you will meet with in your tour of
the West Indies, but if you listen intently enough you
will catch an "I" and an "an" or a "Yes»i then gradually your ear will be able to distinguish all the words
and you will wonder that you could not understand
the dialect.
They are interesting, these people. Watch them
as they swarm around your cruising vessel docked
in Kingston harbor, in their tub-like canoes, and dive
deep into the water for your coppers. They are a
different people in every sense of the word.
Participants in the cruises to the West Indiea by
the Canadian Pacific S.S. Montroyal in January and
February next will be afforded every opportunity to
study the various peoples with whom they come in
contact and will return with at least a few impressions and a better understanding of them. No matter how different they may be, they are never foreign. .This ia especially true of the British protectorates. If one would really get to the heart of these
people he dare not patronise them. If he doei this
be only finds the type that he expects to find.

Battle for League
Wildcats Still Well In The
Continued from Page I
The following evening saw the
Wildcats and Timber Wolves facing
each other. The latter smarting
from their narrow margin defeat of
the previous evening were ready to
devour Wildcats or even Mountain
Lions. They commenced play like
a bolt of greased lightning and the
final whistle found them victorious
to the tune of 4-3. It was a closely
contested game, played at a dizzy
pace with both teams repeatedly
breaking up and down the ice, and
pouring a rain of shots on each goal.
The last game of the week on
Wednesday was instrumental in
throwing a monkey wrench into
the smooth running mechanism of
the Wildcat's machinery, when
the Tigers downed the high steppers to the tune of 5-0. It was a
nice gentlemanly game, each
player's first consideration being
the safety of Ins opponent. Tripping, slashing and other playful
pastimes had been tabooed by
the referee before commencing and
everyone was on their good behaviour.
It was really a good game, with
the Wildcats fighting like their
namesakes, and the Tigers doing
the killing stunt.
The score does not indicate the
play. The Wildcats come within
an ace of scoring a score of times,
but it was their unlucky night,
and the breaks went against them.
Except for a few changes the
following are the members of the
teams which took part in the
Wildcats, P. Williamson, goal-
A. D. Yorke, defense; Gus. Anderson, J. Wilson, L. Foster, forwards.
Timber Wolves, J. Hanna, goal;
Smith, defense; J. Crompton, T.
Hutton, R.'Erickson forwards.
Tigers, E. De Gruchy, goal; T.
W. Falconer, defense; Al. Falconer,
H. Butler, E Moss, forwards.
Following is the standing of
teams up to and including Wednesday night.
