Two   Hockey   Games
Played Alice Arm
League
Two games were played in the
Alioe Arm Hookey League during
the week. The first game was on
, Sunday afternoon, when the Timber Wolves and Tigers mauled each
other for three periods, at the end
of which the Tigers emerged victorious with a 7'3 soore.
Four of the Tigers \Vere on the
ice at the face-off, and the services
of Gus. Anderson were enlisted,
while J. Wilson acted as spare.
Both did excellent work, and the
Tiger's victory was due to a large
extent to their efforts.
A. D. Yorke acted as spare for
the Timber Wolves, anJ he was responsible for breaking up repeated
rushes of the Tiger's forwards.
It was a fast and furious game,
and the Timber Wolves had much
more of the play than • is denoted
by the soore. They fought gamely
to the end and repeatedly came
within an ace of scoring, but the
goddess of luck had deserted them.
The improvement of goal-keeper
Aubusson alsowas a factor in keeping down the score. He is fast
learning the art of how to keep the
puck from the back of the net.
It was a hard, stern tussel witty
the ice in good condition and players and fans thoroughly enjoyed the
afternoon's sport.
Teams, Timber Wolves; J. Hanna, goal; Smith defence; Cromp-
to'i, Hutton, Erickson, Yorke, forwards.
Tigers: Aubusson, goal, Anderson, defence; Butler, DeGruchy,
Wilson, Moss, forwards.
On Tuesday evening the two
town teams, Wildcats and Tigers
| closed with each other, both trying
[to outskate and outscore their
opponents at every opportunity.
It was the first game of the season
that the Tigers could place a full
team on the ice, and they made a
much better showing. The Wildcats won by a score of six to three.
T. W. Falconer, the king-pin of
the team made his debut for the
Tigers, and his presence gave the
team considerable encouragement.
The game started with a whirlwind rush by Wildcats, who soored
four goals in the first period, before
the Tigers had settled down to
systematic playing.
The Tigers had tlieir wisdom
teeth cut in the first period, and in
the two following they scored three
goals against the Wildcat's two.
It was a fast exciting game,
with both teams plunging into the
frtiy like untamed colts. The whole
hag of tricks eaoh player possessed
was turned loose, and the result
Brought the fans to their feet on
several occasions.
The Wildcats had the advantage

Rev. Hacker, Prince Rupert
Preaches United Church
Rev. Geo. G. Hacker of Prince
Rupert visited the United Church
on the occasion of the third Anniversary of the New Church. On
Friday afternoon Mr. Hacker
addressed the Girls' Group on the
subject "Ordinary. Girls." On
Sunday morning he spoke to the
Sunday Sohool and at the Evening
Servioe preaohed an eloquent sermon covering the great and effective missionary of the United
Church of Canada.
During the Service the pastor
made an appeal for $400.00 for the
Budget Fund. This account is
needed in order to meet the payment on the churoh debt and the
allocation of the Maintenance and
Extension Fund.

Church
The Annual Parish meeting of
Christ Church was held on Wednesday evening.
The following officers were appointed and elected for the year
1927. Mr. F. C. Graham, Rector's
Warden; Mr. W. J. E. Pamplin.

The Tigers played their best
game of the season, and a few more

Beach   Athletic   Club
Hold  Successful
Smoker
Tunney-Dempsey Pictures
On Monday evening, a smoker
was held in the Recreation Hall, at
whioh a very interesting programme was put on by the members of the Beach Athletic Club
who were able to bring before the
view of the general public, the results of their endeavors in training
the local juveniles in the noble art
of self defence, which spoke very
well for the Club during the short
time it has been iu existence. The
Hall was crowded to seating capacity.
Mr. E. Craggs acted as referee for
the evening,and Mr. J. Crow tickled
the ivories and helped to make the
evening a success. The bouts put
on by the Athletic Club were spider
Dresser versus Midget Scott for 3
rounds; H. Johnston versus B.
Gillis in a Blindfold bout. This
caused much amusement to the
audience, a bell was used on each
boxer alternately for the first two
rounds.
The fourth event was staged by
«Foxy Davis aud T.- Calderoni for
three rounds, and the next bout
was between Battling Brown and
Speed Johnstone. ^ This event was
fast and considerable skill and endurance was shown by both boxers.
The final bout was between
Gunboat Smith aud Dreadnought
Peters whioh went three rounds.
At the conclusion of the display
of local talent the Dempsey-Tunney
fight pictures were shown, which
were very interesting and gave one
au excellent idea of this big event.

Fast Games are Feature
of AnyOx Basket
Ball League
In the best game of the season
the Celtics came through with an
unexpected win over the experienced Mine senior team, 40-26, on
Friday the 21st. The game was
unusually fast, both teams displaying a smooth working combination. Jimmie Mitchell's proteges
however, were more effective in
penetrating the opposing defence,
and locating the basket. At half
time the score was 19-7. The
game was marred towards the
end by the unsportsmauable conduct of some of the Mine players.
Mine: Lane, Halverson-5,
Stubbs, Brown-7, Evans-2, Corkle-
4, Lipski-8.
Celtics: Lindgren-13, McDonald-
8, Clay, Lazoreok-6, Asimus-9
Mitchell-4. E. Barclay.
The Mine girls again defeated
the Freshies 20-6. Both teams
were evenly matched, but the
Mine girls made every shot count.
H. Calderone and J. Calderone
starred for the Mine and C. Nucich
and Z. Sutilovioh were the pick
of the losers.

With J. Stewart leading the
attack the Concentrator smothered
the Elks, 53-25, in a senior league
basketball fixture on Jan 19. Stewart soored 24 points. The Elks
held their own in the first half,
which ended 19-11. In the second
period the winners swept the Elks
off their feet, Stewart and McColl
shooting from all angles. Buntain

E. MOSS, Editor and Publisher.
The following is taken from the
editorial columns of the Engineering
and Mining Journal, published in
New York, and is one of the best
written articles on the copper situation published in recent times.
"Theory often appears to be exploded; but theory correctly predicated on economic law always will
prevail. The trouble is that reasoning is not always sound. One hears
the statement made repeatedly that
"the price of copper is abnormally
low." The argument generally ad
vanced is that, whereas lead, zinc
oil, wool and steel and a dozen
other basic commodities bring from
15 to 100 per cent, more than they
did in 1913, copper is actually selling for less. Therefore the price of
copper is below "normal"! Or, it
will be contended, that as $1.50 is
required on the average to buy
commodities that cost $1 in 1913,
the "normal" price of copper today
should be half again as high as it
was in 1913. Neither course of
reasoning is sound.
"It is true, of course, that the
existence of some over capacity in
equipment for production has created a buyer's rather than a seller's
market, and this has a tendency to
depress the price slightly. But this
influence is not of sufficient moment
persistently to keep the price down
in material degree. In a free,
broad, and competitive market like
that of copper the price will always
be in the general neighbourhood of
"normal"; this is true in theory,
and strong evidence exists to show
that it is true in fact. The normal
price for any commodity, by definition, is the approximate cost of
production at a given time of that
part of the whole supply that is produced at the greatest disadvantage.
This is known as the marginal
production.
"A moment's reflection shows
clearly why the normal price of
copper in 1926 is measurably less
than the. normal price in 1913.
Improved methods of mining, concentrating, and smelting, and
increased outputs from individual
properties, with consequent economy; these have reduced the cost
of production in spite of higher
wage scales and generally increased
commodity prices. Necessity for
efficiency may have been more dire
than in the instance of other metals;
but whatever the reason the achievement is remarkable. Moreover,
the development of many large new-
mines with low production costs,
has enabled the industry to meet
soaring consumptive demand with
low-cost metal. As a consequence
the cost of the marginal production
instead of being increased, has
been lowered. Right here, incidentally, lies the reason for the
advance in lead price; the cost of
the marginal production has increased.
"So much for theory—for eco
nomic law. What are the practical
evidences that the price is not far
from normal? Profits and dividends. Recent months have seen
dividend payments resumed by some,
increased by others. A large part
of the Copper mining industry ap
parently is prosperous.
"At the same time a tendency is
apparent toward increased output
on the part of many producers,
particularly the "low-cost group in
North and South America. If
future increases are important, and
if world consumption lags behind,
it is conceivable that the "normal"
price will be lowered still more.
It may follow that the present
marginal producers will find themselves pushed over into the class
that cannot even make ends meet.
"Some of the low-cost group
have operated at curtailed capacity
for several years, seemingly for the
purpose of nursing the market.
Have they concluded that they can
do better by increasing production
even at the expense of a possible
depression of the average price?
A profit of 4^ cents per pound on
20,000,000 lb. is much better than
a profit of 5c. per pound on 17,000,-
000, especially when the depletion
of ore reserves is not an important
factor. A complication of course
arises from the fact that some companies are interested in both high-
and-low-cost.producers.
"If the process of shutting down
and restarting a mine were not so
exceedingly expensive it is probable
that operations at some of the higher
cost properties would be suspended
if the policy were to be adopted generally of pushing output at the low-
cost properties to the maximum. It
is to bo assumed in making this
statement that consumption does
not expand proportionately with
increased production. It is possible
that it may be found advisable to
shut down in spite of the immense
cost. Whatever may happen, they
will be deceiving themselves who
argue that the price of copper is far
below "normal." They had better
not rely on return to normality. The
best they can hope for is a readjustment in supply and demand that will
establish a new normal at a higher
level.

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 suoh properties, security of which is guaranteed by
Crown Grants.
Practically all British Columbia Mineral Properties upon whioh development work has been done

ALICE ARM1   AND  ANYOX  HERALD,  Friday.  January 29   1927
Increased Production is
Forcing Down Copper
Prices
Higher production rates and
lower prices for copper stand out
as the features of the non-ferrous
m9tal industries iu Deoember. The
estimated rate of world production
in November, the latest month for
whioh data are available, was about
5,080 tons of metal per day. This
is equivalent to 3,708,000,000 lb.
per year, ootnpared with a probable
actual production of 3,282,000,000
lb. for 1926, the highest output in
history.
It is not impossible that some
unusual factors in the November
statistics, not apparent on the surface, operated  to swell the total.
Some decline may eventuate
during the early months of 1927.
However, reports of expansion of
production by many of the big
companies in the United States,
Chile, and Peru have been heard
for some months, and the figures
for November certainly lend support to the accuracy of these
reports; and. at the same time, the
reports tend to diminish the possibility that important peculiarities
enter into the November statistics.
Although the average price for
copper iu December was only about
Jo. under that for November, the
price on January 1. was fully fc.
lower than that on December 1.
In other words the drop in December was sharp and rapid in the
latter half of the month after the
statistics were made public.
Doubtless the important producers
expected a decline in price when
they launched their policy of increasing production; but it is a
question how far they anticipated
the decline would go. As this is
written the tone of the market
seems to have improved somewhat,
but whether the real bottom has
been reached remains to be Seen.—

entertainments whioh were greatly
appreciated.
The latest pictures are now being
shown twice a week and the
library and reading room being
enlarged. A great deal of interest
is being taken in the inter-departmental basketball league which has
always provided keenly contested
games. Tennis and badminton
tournaments were arranged during
the past season and all other sports
encouraged. With an energetic
committee in charge the outlook
for 1927 seems very promising.

Alaska Mines Produce Fair
Total
The U. S. Department of tha
Interior announces, through advance statements prepared by the
Alaskan branch of the Geological
Survey, that mines in Alaska produced minerals to the value of $17-
490,000 in 1926, as against$18,-
220.692 in 1925. The total value
of the mineral output of Alaska
since 1880 is over $570,000,000.
The figures for 1926 are estimates
and subject to revision.
Spain Removes Export Duty
The Government of Spain has
removed the. export duty on iron
ores in order to facilitate the operation of the iron mines. Further
revision of the duties on exploration of other" ores and metals is
under consideration.
Andy Parkes, a resident of Alice
Arm, appeared before Stipendary
Magistrate R. M. McGusty, at
Anyox on Saturday, charged with
petty thieving. He drew a term
of six months.     [
Before they were married he
whispered to her. "Were I
drowning in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean—going down for the third
time—you would be the last person
I'd think of." It made her happy.
After they had been married several
years he made the same speech. It
didn't seem to have the same meaning then. Besides, she didn't like
the way he said it. So she hit him
with a plate.
