Mine Ladies Victorious
First Basketball
The Beach Ladies alias ''Young-
I sters" have' acquired the sweaters
[used by the two ladies' teams on
prate occasions last year. Apparently they hoped to overwhelm the
Mine by sheer weight of numbers
.because changes in the line-up were
Somewhat bewildered by the great
I open spaces and perhaps a little
i shaken at sight of the long line of
[reserves on the Beach bench the
[five maids from the mountain could
register only a 3-2 lead at half time.
(They were even trailing at 2-1 when-
'hPut O'Neill negotiated a basket but
I Sis Deane replied with a counter
■from the resulting toss-up. During
jimost of the first half all ten players
I were crowding the ball.    There was
little open play and overmuch wrestling.
At half time coach Young changed
f'jhis personnel and the mountaineers
{'climbed over them to boost the score
(to 10-2. In the third period it was
vdifficult to follow the substitutions
'in the Beach line-up
V1- In the last quarter the original
ii Beach battalion took the floor again
[and aided by stem struggling on
; the part of Doris Greenwood, Annie
Scott, and Pat O'Neill.v fought their
ijway to an 11-9 count, although one
jf their baskets followed a "rassle"
:hat deserved the whistle.
Having taken a brief rest  the
f vline Club returned and added two
nc-re baskets,   thereby  garnering
he box of chocolates donated by J.
1* Miller to the victors in this engagement.   The five worked well
together and the departure of Miss

Mining   Activity  Will
Cause Expansion
of Industry    '
The splendid results attained this
year by mining companies developing properties io the Alice Arm dis-,
trict, will unquestionably result in
an expansion of the mining industry
next year.
The fact that five companies are
operating this winter will also show
that transportation problems are
are not insurmountable for a small
company desiring winter operations
in this district.
The Toric, Tiger, North Star,
Esperanza and Sunrise are all prepared for winter operations. Every
one is well financed, and every one
is operating a good property that
should develop into big tonnage
producers. Three of the above, the
Toric, Esperanza, and North Star
are already producers, each having*
shipped either ore or concentrates.
Two years ago mining promoters
looked askance when approached
by local property owners. "Its
hard to raise rrioney.for that section"
they said. It was, but a few did,
chief of which was the Toric Management. Others followed that property,^ successful development ,with.
equally successful results. Today-
it is much easier to raise money for
the development of Alice Arm properties. The camp is becoming,
better known. Success spells prosperity. Alice Arm is getting the
first, and is rapidly acquiring the

Large Gathering Attends The
Debate on School Subject
The first formal debate arranged
by the P. T. A..attracted quite a
''house". Speaking to the resolution "That the value derived from
the study of Latin and French does
not warrant their being compulsory
subjects in B. C. High Schools,"
Rev. J. Dewar and Mrs. J. A. D.
Stewart lost the decision by a vote
of the audience to Miss Hoadley
and Mr. Warwick. Another innovation was community singing led by
Mr. Anderson with Mrs. Anderson
at the piano. Mr. Dresser, kindly,
supplied the song sheets.

Speaking Contests
The Anyox P. T. A. has voted
the sum of forty-five dollars for
prizes to be awarded to the winners
of essay and public speaking con-:
tests which will be conducted in the
local schools. In the speaking contests no topic has been indicated
but for the essays the following were
suggested: (1) "A Great Canadian";.

Bridges  on  Dolly   Varden
Railway Being Planked
The planking of the bridges on
the Dolly Varden Railway by the
Toric Mines Co. Ltd. is well advanced. All the bridges as far as
Spring Camp have been completed.
Lumber has been delivered on all
bridges between there and Camp 8.
The planking of the bridges is
necessary for the use of sleighs
during the winter months. Over
13,000 feet of lumber is necessary
for the work. It was cut locally at
Al. Falconer's sawmill.
The weather for the past week
was a trifle juicy.

Rinky Dinks Win From
High School
The Anyox Basketball, League
began the season on Wednesday
night before a large crowd in the
gallery. The only opening formality
was a brief speech by O. G. Macintyre, President of the Anyox Community League, who stated that
this is the "biggest and best Basketball League yet in Anyox."
That remains to be seen. Promises
of entries and threats of withdrawals keep us guessing. In the curtain raiser the Rinky Dinks collected
five boys who held the High School
to a 33-11 score. For the first five
minutes the game was scoreless.
Then the red shirts stepped into the
lead with a free throw and a goal.
C. Dresser added four more baskets
during the rest of the'game, at the
same time accumulating too many
fouls, but by courtesy of the opposition he was allowed to Continue
as the red shirts had no more men.
Steele and Deeth on the High School
attack were particularly outstanding
and Kent did valuable work on defence. For the losers the Cloke
bqys struggled gamely. The teams

Snow Necessitates Use
Sleighs  On Upper
Part  Railway
The snow of the past week has
blocked the upper end of the Dolly
Varden railway to the foot of the
5 per oent. grade. Supplies for the
Tiger mine are now being sleighed
in by Al. Falconer, a distance of
about four miles.
Arrangements have been made
with AL Falconer by the Tiger
management to keep the entire
length of the railway open for
sleighs during the winter for the
transporting of supplies and mail.
The Torio mine, which adjoins
the Tiger, will also operate throughout the winter, and they will undoubtedly co-operate with the Tiger
in keeping the road open throughout the winter.
The bulk of supplies for the Tiger
have already been taken in. Twelve
men are now employed at the mine,
and this force will he engaged
throughout the winter.
The Wildcat Receives
Humorous Comment
Usually the truth of the old dictum
"Give a dog a bad name and hang
him," may be accepted. But the
owners of a mineral claim in Alice
Arm, in naming it "The Wildcat,"
have demonstrated their disregard
for triteness. The claim is to be
developed actively this winter, and
if, as it is hoped, the result is satisfactory, we may expect to see some
such heading in the local newspaper,
The Herald, as: "The Wildcat not
a Wildcat," "The Domestication of
the Wildcat," or "When is a Wildcat not a Wildcat." N But from a
practical standpoint this libellous
labelling of the claim may one day
be put to useful account, supposing
the title of the property should pass
into less scrupulous hands. To the
ingenious but disingenious promoter what better alibi Could be afforded? He could make the most unjustifiable and ridiculous assertions
in defiance'of the truth and of government restrictions by the mere
qualification that he was advertising
a thing that everyone knew was a
"wild-cat," and so there could be
no deception.—British Columbia
If Peterson can tame the Tiger
so easily, why can't Davidson tame
the Wildcat? Davy says he will if
he has to rip the insides clear out
of her, and it won't be all waste

The adverse report of responsible mining engineers a short time
ago in regard to the non-existence
of any commercial ore at the
Woodbine, and the more recent
equally damaging report of government mining engineers in regard to
the Snowflake has caused a lot of
discussion, in the provincial press
and the end is not yet in sight.
Reputable mining engineers, after
inspecting the properties stated that
large tonnages of commercial ore
existed. They have now to prove
it. They either did no know their
business; or failed to examine the
property or deliberately lied.
Whatever the cause it leaves a bad
taste in the mouths of the investing
It is not necessary to lie regarding ore tonnage. The investing
public doesn't wish it. It wants
the truth. If the mine fails to
come up to expectations after sufficient development work has been
done, and the investors have had a
run for their money, it is for the
promoters to say so. The public
mark it down as a loser and try
again. Every person when he invests money in a concern that is
endeavoring to develop a mine
from a plrospect should know that
, it is a gamble, and be prepared to
take his losses if he has used poor
judgement. If the promoters of a
mining company, when they encounter a dud, would display
enough courage to let go, and
acquire another property, it would
be better for all concerned, The
money thrown into just a "hole in
the ground" would then be working in probably developing good
ore that could be created into

make the proud boast that not one

worthless on which sufficient work
has been done. At the present

Anaconda Co. Resumes
Work on Original Mine
Anaconda Copper will resume
production from its Original mine,
in the Butte district, according to
J. It. Hobbins, vioe-president of the
company. Work was started at
the property on Oct. 29. The mine
was closed down on June 30, 1927,
for the purpose of effecting repairs
and necessary development work,
which resulted satisfactorily. After
cleaning operations are over, about
700 men will be employed, Production from the mine, which is
3,900 ft. deep, amounts to about
1,000 tons'a day. Approximately
500 men are already at work at the
Badger State mine, which was reopened a short time ago. The reopening of these two mines will
mean a greatly increased copper
production from Anaconda's Butte
properties, caused by the recent increase in price.
The Original mine was' the first
claim patented in the Butte district. It was located by five millers in 1864. Anaconda Copper
purchased the mine from the late
Senator W. A. Clark in 1910.

A new world record was set by
the Canadian Pacific Railway recently when a train of grain more
than a mile ln length was operated
between, Stoughton and Areola, in
Saskatchewan. It was the lungest
and heaviest grain train ln history,
consisting of 135 loaded grain cars,
each approximately 40 feet ln
length, a water car, a caboose and

8,722 tons and the total contents
of the cars were 202,000 bushels
