Anyox Boy Scouts Are
Showing Great
The splendid sum of $136.00 was
realized at the recent Boy Scout
Concert. This is almost entirely
clear of expense. The Committee
of the Scout Association are greatly
pleased with this gratifying result,
and wish to extend their sincere
thanks to all who so kindly assisted
in "putting over" the concert so
The Cubs are having gleeful
times, for Jack Cloke takes them
out everv now and then in his gas
boat. It is expected that the Cubs
will spend a short period at the
camp this summer.
Definite plans are now being
made to hold the Scout Camp at
Swamp Point. A suggestion has
been received from the newly formed troop at Premier that they join
with the Anyox Scouts with their
summer camp. They have been
promised free transportation by two
gentlemen at Stewart, to whatever
place may be decided upon for the
camp. The laudable idea of the
Stewart Scouts is that they could
learn many points on camp life,
from the Anyox boys, who have had
greater experience, and that all the
boys would benefit by such co operation. It is very probable that a
joint arrangement will be made.
It is expected that the duration of
the camp will be ten days.
A recent three day visit to Larcom Island by the Anyox Scouts,
proved enjoyable and instructive,
although the weather man was a
little out of sorts at the time.
Some very useful work was done
during this visit.
Caribou Swims Bay At Alice
The unusual sight of a caribou
swimming in the bay at Alice Arm
was seen by several people on
Monday evening.- The animal,
which was a 2-year old, entered the
water near the wharf and swam
over to the east side of the Kitsault river. It eventually disappeared among the growth on the
flats. It probably had been chased
by a band of wolves, and, as is
usual, took to the water as a means
of refuge.
I   Struck With Rock In Mine
■4 » i i	
Vido Perovich was injured
through an accident in the Hidden
Creek Mine in the early hours of
Sunday last, through being hit in
the back with a small piece of rock.
He was conveyed to the hospital
and is progressing favorably.
Canadian National Steamship "Prince Rupert"
The steamship Prince Rupert will commence the summer schedule of the Canadian National
Steamships today.    She will arrive at Anyox this evening, leaving at It p.m.   This service
will be continued until the fall schedule is inaugurated.
His Horse Sense Was
Missing This Time
"Old Sam," the famous old horse
of Barney Turbitt, was saved from
a slow drowning death on Tuesday
evening on the Kitsault Flats. It
was a close shave, and for a time
Sam's serene composure was a
trifle ruffled.
Now Sam is not an ordinary
horse. He is real wise. Too wise
for a horse in the opinion of many
local gardeners, when they are repairing and strengthening broken
fences, that Sam's curiosity had
wrecked. It was this inborn curiosity that almost caused his death.
While grazing on the flats he commenced an investigation of the log
ging railroad trestle. He.managed
to squeeze himself between two
piles, and he did it so well that he
couldn't go ahead or back up.
The tide commenced to rise and the
cap on the piles held him down.
His predicament was noticed
when the water was well advanced,
and. all hope had vanished, but help
arrived at the last minute and Sam
was saved from a slow but inevitable death.
Shelters  Are Assured For
Elks' Beach
The much wanted shelter for
bathers at Elks' Beach is now
assured. Two public spirited carpenters, with some assistance, will
erect the building with volunteer
labor, the Community League is
supplying the lumber and conveying
it to the beach.
The shelters will be much appreciated. The Community League
has placed a sign at the point
where the hand rail ends, requesting visitors not to use the board
walk from that point, but follow
the trail, which is an excellent one
and which continues right to the
Elks'Beach. In this way all danger is avoided.
Activities Of The Anyox
Community League
Some malicious person—presumably a boy or youth, who should be
severely dealt with if caught—has
wilfully cut away the ropes of one
of the. swings at the Beach playground. The ropes were almost
severed, and the act would have
made an accident a certainty if the
discovery had not been made in
This play equipment is regularly
inspected and renewed with the one
idea of safety always in mind, find
such a thoughtless and dangerous
act is almost unbelievable. The
Council has now decided to replace
the ropes of these swings, with
chains or cables, although rope is
the ideal material for the purpose.
Mr. Cavers will represent the
Council on the Joint Committee,
which will be formed to deal with
the. reception and entertainment of
the officers and men of the Flagship
"Delhi," which will visit Anyox
August 29th.
The girls of the High School
Basketball team, which won the
Ladies' Basketball Championship
last season, will be presented by the
Community League with signet
rings bearing the emblem: A. H. S.
This choice of prizes has proved
very popular with all concerned, and
the rings will serve as permanent
and most attractive mementoes.
The Softball ground at the Flats,
recently prepared has already justified its existence. More work will
be done to improve it still further,
and it is earnestly hoped by the
League that the ground will be utilized to the fullest extent. It will
now be fixed up as a Softball
ground, with a regular diamond
area, bases, etc. As a playground
for the children it is proving most

Ketchikan   Baseballers

The major attraction for the
Dominion Day celebration will be
the baseball games between Ketchi,
kan and Anyox All-Stars. The
Ketchikan team will visit Anyox
under the auspices of the Community League, who are financing the
project. A three-game series ^ith
the visitors facing the pick of
Anyox should prove a wonderful
drawing card.
Arrangements are being made to
have Ketchikan arrive in Anyo* on
the afternoon of Thursday, June
30th. on which evening one game
will be played. Then there will be
one game during the afternoon of
Dominion Day and another in the

An Anyox All-star team will play
a return series in Ketchikan on
July 3rd. and 4th. This team will
ibe carefully selected, so that Anyox

representation for these return
Elks Join With Community League In Big
A radical change in the date of
the Elks' Flag and Field Day has
been made this year throughout the
Dominion. This famous celebration of the B. P. O. E., which is
an annual event specially arranged
tor the children, has up to now been
held on August 4th. or as near that
date as possible. As everybody
knows, August 4th. is the date of
the anniversary of the entrance of
Britain into the World War.
It is now felt that a more suitable
date would be Dominion Day,
so that hereafter all Lodges of the
B. P. O. E. will hold their Flag and
Field Day on or as near to that date
as possible.
This year the Brother Bills will
combine with the Community League in holding their celebration on
July 1st. Every event and feature
which is usual on their famous
whoopee day will be on the program.
Nothing will be omitted, and the
identity of the famous order of Elks
will in every respect be maintained.
All the children of Anyox and
Alice Arm and the whole district
will be gathered up in the generous
arms of their big Brother Bills and
loaded with ice cream (colder than
ever kids!) balloons, candy, peanuts, pop-corn, and what have you?
And of course a Canadian Flag.
Races and sports events for everybody from 1 year old up.
It's going to be a really wonderful
time for all the youngsters, so all
be ready for July 1st. Watch for
further announcements of this and
all the doings of the Community
League on this truly eventful day.
Keen Rivalry For Sun Life
Cup Each Month
The Cup donated to the Ladies'
Golf Club last year, by the Sun Life
Assurance Company for monthly
competition, is now awarded to the
player making the three lowest 18-
hole scores during the month.
The condition is that the player
must signify to her partner before
the game her intention of counting
the score as for the competition.
The arrangement is working out
very well, and there is keen rivalry
for the possession of this fine
trophy. For the month of May it
was won by Mrs. Wenerstrom.
Rose Day Will Be July 1st.
As In Previous Years
All funds derived from the sale of
Uoses on Dominion Day.go to help
the hospitals for Crippled Children.
There is a hospital in London,
England, which is specially devoted
to crippled children, and there are
hospitals in Canada where such unfortunate children are taken care of.
Most of the money collected, however, remains in Canada, and it is a
most worthy cause. The ladies of
the I. O. D. E. will, as in other
years, undertake the sale of Roses,
on July 1st.
M. Tocoba Passed Away

been confined to the hospital since
May 7th. The cause of death was
lung trouble, following pneumonia. ALICE   ARM   AND   ANYOX   HERALD, Saturday. June 18,  1932

Value of Mineral Out-
Put for 1931 In B. C.
Shows Decline
Demoralized Markets Cause
Of Slump
Hon. W. A. McKenzie, Minister
of Mines, has announced the issu
ance of his Annual Report for
1931. This report covers exhaustively the year's activities of the
mineral industry of the province.
In common with all industries
the dollar value of the mineral production showed a heavy decline in
1931 as compared with 1930. The
final figures show a value of $34,
883,181 as against $55,391,993 in
the previous year. On a quantity
basis however, Hon. Mr. MoKenzie
points out that the industry operated at 80% of the 1930 rate. The
decline of $20,508,812 in value was
mainly caused by much lower
metal prices and lowered outputs
of metals.
In recent years the major por
tion of the mineral production of
the province has been in silver,
copper, lead, and zinc, and the
demoralized condition of the markets for these metals during 1931
caused a decline in the value of the
output of these four metals of over
$18,000,000. Other branches of
the mineral industry therefore
only declined comparatively slightly. Placer gold showed a substantial increase and a gain was also
made iu miscellaneous metals and
minerals, but the major branches
of the industry all showed decreas,
ed outputs. Considering the state
of world business and the unprece-
dentedly low prices of metals in
1931, it is not surprising that
mettalic production declined as it
did. It is satisfactory however,
that the major operations were
continued and only remarkably efficient operation prevented a complete shut down.
The tonnage of metalliferous ore
mined in the Province was 5,549,-
103 as compared with 6,803,846
tons in 1930, a decrease of 18.45
per cent. The average gross value
of the ore mined was $4.06 a ton,
as compared with $6.04 a ton in
1930. This shows the effect of
much lower metal prices and emphasizes the low operating costs
being achieved by the large low-
grade mines of the Province.
The brightest feature of British
Columbia mining at the present
time, comments Mr. McKenzie, is
the active search for gold. Placer
gold production made a substantial increase in 1931, with an output nearly double that of 1930, and
a still larger figure is expected in
1932. Lode-gold production showed a slight deoline in 1931, due to
lessened output of byproduct gold,
but the plans and developments
under way at straight gold mines,
assure a greater output for 1932.
... The probability of improvement
in silver price; Mr. McKenzie
points out, holds hope for British
Columbia mines, as the known silver ore reserves are considerable.
Improvement in general world
conditions will be necessary before
base metal mining will again show
an upward trend.
The ability, enthusiasm, and high
technical achievements of the entire personnel of the mining indus
try, reflects great credit on them,
and Mr McKenzie paid a tribute
to the way in which employment
had been maintained iu these trying times.
The following comments explain
the production figures of the dif
ferent metals and minerals:
Lode gold production, valued at
$3,018,894, shows a slight decline
from the figure in 1930 notwithstanding much increased activity
in this form of mining. The les.
sened output was mainly due to
the shutting down of the Copper
Mountain mine, a lowered output
from Premier owing to a slightly
lower grade ore, and the closing of
the Nickel Plate mine, a former
consistent gold producer. These
decreases were offset in part by a
much larger output from the Pioneer and increases from the Union
and Reno mines.
Placer mining had a very busy
and successful vear. Production
amounted to $291,992, a considerable increase over the $152,235
recorded in 1930. Furthermore,
the work carried out in 1931 indicates that placer gold production
will increase in future years. This
form of mining is beginning to
attract widespread attention as
the undoubted possibilities and
large rewards in sight are better
realized. "'Sniping" by individuals
with pan, rocker, and small sluice
provided a living for many men
who otherwise would have been a
charge on the community.
The silver output was 7,524,320
ozs. valued at $2,247,514, being
niueh below the record figure of
11,289,171 ozs. produced in 1930.
Most of the small silver-lead zinc
mines of the province were closed
iu 1930. Sullivan, Premier and
Prosperity, however, all made
large outputs that year, enabling a
high record production to be made.
Prosperity was closed early in
1931, and Sullivan and Premier
were forced to curtail to some ex
tent, these factors thereby largely
causing the marked decline in 1931
The copper output for 1931 was
63,194,299 lbs. as compared with
90,421,545 lbs. in 1930. Copper
mountain mine of the Granby
Company   did   not  produce   this
Chris. Anderson Has Hand
Burned By Electric Shock
While assisting in fixing up a
block switch on the railroad near
the copper pile shortly before 5
o'clock on Friday the 10th,, Chris,
Anderson of the Power Department
had his hand badly burned. The
electric current passed through his
body from one hand to the other,
and he had difficulty in disengaging
himself from the switch which he
was holding. He is resting comfortably at the hospital after the
year, and in addition, curtailment
was iu force at the Britannia,
these factors largely accounting for
the decreased output. Hidden
Creek mine of the Granby Company made a larger output than in
1930, but the total production of
this company shows a large decrease due to the non-operation of
the Copper Mountain mine.
The coal output for the year'
was 1,707,590 long tons, as compared with 1,887,130 tons in 1930,
a decline of 9.5 per cent. The rate
of decline in coal output which has
been in progress since 1928 is slowing up.

by the Provincial Mineralogist and
includes complete mineral statistics, detail reports by the Resident
Engineers on tlieir respective districts, and reports by the Chief
Inspector and District Inspectors

On Friday the 10th. a League
baseball game was played between
the Beach and the Mine, the former winning 10-5. The game was
full of interest and the fans were
treated to some excellent play.
Lazorek started the pitching for
the Mine, but after two hits combined with an error and three runs,
he was relieved by Allan, who
pitched well throughout. Off McColl, who pitched for the Beach
there were five hits, and off Allan
six. Lazorek struck out one, Mc-
three and Allan four. The Mine
had ten errors and the Beach seven.
The teams were: Mine, F. Anderson, F. Whitehouse, T. Calderoni, Geo. Allan, S. H. Bartmann,

In Hard-Fought
After a hard fought tussle the
Mine and Rangers drew 3 all In the
Football League game on Thursday the 9th. There was' some excellent football and fast play, but
some weaknesses on both sides due
to changes in formation.
The Mine were without some of
their regular men, and found this a
handicap. Morrison made the best
use of the men available, and played
a fine game himself.
The Rangers had strengthened
their line-up considerably, but still
need a little organizing. Ion appeared on the forward line, but he
properly belongs to the defence,
where he is always sure and reliable. Freddy Williams played an
excellent game throughout, in
whatever position he found himself.
Tony Yglasias drew first blood
for the Mine with a nice long kick,
Jim Boyd made it two from fairly
close in, and Pynn got the third
with a ground shot which found the
corner of the net.

of modern life, the decision
as to where it will be spent
is of considerable importance. Canada has a par-
) ticular appeal to the vacationist, for it has an
unusual variety of attractions, which
may be enjoyed at reasonable cost.
Recreation Areas Easily
For most people, the summer
vacation is limited to a few weeks
and is really shortened by the time
used in travelling to and from the
locality selected. Canada has an
extensive system of good roads and
excellent railway services which
greatly facilitate travel between
Attractions Cover Wide
Canada presents a striking diversity of natural features—the rugged
and picturesque Atlantic coast; the
St. Lawrence river and Great lakes,
tbe world's greatest inland waterway; the Laurentian mountains,
land of forest and stream; the
prairies; the majestic Rockies; and
the beautiful Pacific coast. Each
of these areas has its own attractions of scenic beauty and opportunities for enjoyable recreation.
Fishing, hunting, camping, canoeing, and mountain-climbing may
all be enjoyed under ideal conditions, while golf and tennis may be
played practically everywhere. Accommodation includes everything
from camp site to luxurious hotel.
Those to whom economy is a
matter of concern may spend a
pleasant vacation close to nature,
at surprisingly small oost.

Copper and The New
U. S. Duty
An editorial in The Financial
What may happen to the copper
industry in Canada in the next six
or twelve months will be no criterion of its permanent future.
The 4 cent duty imposed on foreign copper by the United States
will tend to defeat itself.
It will definitely injure that
country's copper export business,
if, as is probable, it induces domestic prices for copper to rise above
the world level, and will cause copper manufacturers to consider Canada as a copper manufacturing field
from which world buyers may be
more successfully served.
It will in all likelihood cause the
British Empire to find ways and
means at Ottawa this summer to
satisfy the Empire demand for fin
ished copper products with refined
copper produced from Canadian and
South African copper ore. This
would immediately nullify any possible good the United States might
derive from the new taritt.
Two can play at the tariff game.
Usually the two are hurt.
