Alice Arm Bean Supper
Nets Nice Sum For
Church Fund
Beans, aud yet more beans,
brown luscious juicy ones, cooked
in the best Bostonian style; potato
salads, pickles, Boston brown
bread, white bread, cakes, pies and
fruit salads featured the bean supper at Alioe Arm on Monday evening.
All of this was obtainable for
the modest sum of 50 cents, and
there was no stinting. Nifty
waitresses were ever on the alert
to see that everybody's hunger
was satisfied, and, "Won't you
have some mor3 beans," "Do try
this fruit salad," or "You must
have a piece of this pie," was
heard on all sides. While coming
or going your attention was drawn
to the fact that a cake, resplendent
in white icing was pleading for
you to guess its weight. It did
not plead in vain either, for it was
the means of realizing $11.50.
Proceeds from the supper were
$44.85, making a total of $56.35.
It takes the ladies' smiles, plus
good service and a lot of hard work
to get the money. They were
jubilant over. Jibe results, and
everyone who attended the supper
was equally happy.
The Alice Arm Women's Auxiliary of the Anglican Church deserve great credit for the excellent
results attained. Preparations entailed au unusual amount of hard
work. Those taking an active
part on Monday, were: Mrs. L.
O'Connor, Mrs. J. Wheatly, Mrs.
O. Evindsen. Mrs. J. Wier, Mrs.
H. F. Kergin, Miss Alice Kergin,
Mrs. J. Trinder, Mrs. M. Smith,
Mrs. W. M. Cummings, Mrs. E.
Proceeds will be devoted to the
Anglican Church Building Fund.
The Women's Auxiliary wish to
take this opportunity of thanking
everyone who contributed toward
making the supper so successful.
Kennedy Traps Four Large
Tom Kennedy, the big game
hunter of Alice Arm, Stewart and
the north coast, and who arrived
at Alice Arm early last fall, spent
most of the winter trapping. He
was successful in trapping four
wolverines six miles up the Kitsault Valley, one of which he
brought to town before skinning.
It was on exhibition for some time
and caused much comment. He
also trapped some small game, but
found the Kitsault Valley rather
denuded. The killing of the wolverines has probably saved the
lives of many goat.       i
Boy Scouts Were Hosts
To Large Crowd
At Dance
The Anyox Boy Scouts were
hosts at an enjoyable dance held
on Easter Monday. Dancing commenced at 9 p.m. and terminated
at 2 a.m.
Novelty dances of various kinds
were held and oaused much amusement. Music was supplied by
Messrs. J. Peel, S. Peel, A. Sten-
ton, C. Shea, J. Pinckney and J.
Donald. Much credit is due Bill
Cavers for his excellent plans in
carrying out the evening's entertainment. The printed programs
proved very efficient for such a
large number.
The three novelty dances created a great'deal of excitement when
the winners were finally called
upon to receive prizes. Miss Doris
Carter and Mr. Jack McColl were
the couple who stood nearest the
troop flag at the end of the dance.
The couple who were standing
under the Union Jack was Mrs.
Gregg and Mr. A. Stewart?" Mr."
and Mrs. Sid Peters carried off the
prize for the married couple nearest the centre of the hall. Mrs. F.
Dresser was the holder of the
ladies' lucky ticket, and Mr. M.
Cranley carried off the men's prize.
The proceeds of the evening will
be devoted to the Scout Camp
Fund, in order that the boys may
enjoy a real summer outing.

Lack of   Fuel  Oil  Closes
Toric Mine
Owing to the bad condition of

made it impossible to get fuel oil
through for the power plant, operations were suspended at the Toric
mine early in the week. It is
understood that as soon as the rail
way is clear of snow, and minor
repairs made if necessary, that oil
will be transported and operations
again commence. Owing to heavy
snow on the upper end it may be 4

Dalhousie Co. Rushing
Development Work
On Tidewater
Development work at the Tidewater Molybdenum mine is being
pushed vigorously ahead by the
Dalhousie Mining Co.
A new dock ia being constructed
so that freight of all kinds can be
landed right on the property.
The new erosscut tunnel, which
will give an additional depth of 100
feet on all the ore ledges is now
well under way. Surface stripping
of the ore ledges is also being carried out, and has disclosed some of
the best ore ever found on the surface. Pack horses for freighting
supplies up the hill are expected to
arrive next week.
It is the intention of the Dalhousie Co. to push development
work as rapidly as possible so that
a tonnage of ore sufficient to operate a concentrating mill can be
blocked out. When this has been
done no time will be lost in the
construction of the mill.
G. W. Bruggy, who holds a half
interest iu the property, visited the
mine during the week. He returned with some fine samples of ore,
which were procured from the open
cuts on the surface and also from
the bottom of the shaft.

The reduction of the price of
copper was not unexpected. For
several months the supply has exceeded the demand, and a cut in
price was bound to take place if
this unsatisfactory condition of affairs did not improve. It was not
expected, however, that a cut of
four cents per pound would be
made at one sweep. It is a drastic
measure, but will undoubtedly
quickly clean up all surplus stocks.
The drop in price is to be deplored. It means that many thousands
of dollars will be lost to British
Columbia through wages. It also
means that less interest will be
taken this year in the development
of new properties. Copper at 18
cents was the one bright feature of
the mining industry. The price of
all metals are now at low levels^
It is predicted, however, by the
well-informed, that with the expected general improvement of
business the price of all metals will
rise, due to an increased demand.
Following is an editorial published in the Vancouver Financial
Times, dealing with the recent cut
of copper prices:
"On April 15, the price of copper was cut, not by one or two
cents per pound, but by no less
than four cents per pound. This
would signify well considered and
concerted action among the large
producers, which was precipitated
by the non-observance of the Copper Export Association's program
of curtailment by the smaller producers and customs smelters.
However, in view of the industrial depression throughout the
world which has been responsible
for a slump in commodity prices, it
seemed ridiculous to visualize the
price of copper being maintained
on the high pinacle created during
exceptionally prosperous times.
A drop in the price of copper
has been anticipated for some time
and the uncertainty so produced
has naturally retarded purchases
by consumers which in turn has
adversely affected industrial activity.
Now that the price has been
placed on what would appear to
Production of Canadian
Copper Is Increasing
Each Year
, Copper, while only produced in
the proportion of about one pound
to every SO tons of pig iron, has attained an importance in the world's
commerce which rivals that of iron
and steel. To the extent that this
is an electrical age, it is a copper
era. One concrete result which has
come from development of the new
mining areas in Northern Quebec,
Ontario and Manitoba, is the importance which the production of
copper has assumed in Canadian
mining'. Output has more than
doubled within the past four years,
and continued growth is expected.
Production in Canada amounted
to 121,000 tons in 1929, an increase
of 20 per cent, over 1928. Owing
to the higher prices prevailing,
total value was more than 80 per
cent, greater. In a recent survey,
the Canadian Department of Mines
stated that Canada should be producing copper at the rate of 160,000
tons a year by the end of 1930.
Canadian production represents
at present only 5 per cent, of the
world output, and in spite of prospective developments, it is unlikely
that her contribution will be of
sufficient volume, for some years,
to have any great influence on market conditions. The price received
by Canadian producers will therefore continue to be governed by
world conditions of supply and demand.
A single fact will often  spoil an
interesting argument.

King's "Five Cent" Declaration Still Causing
Ottawa, April 19th. The Easter recess finds Parliament with
little actually accomplished in the
matter of legislation. Fair progress
has been made with estimates and a
number of resolutions and motions
have been talked over, but the bill
to stop export of liquor to the
United States is the only piece of
legislation of public interest' which
is within striking distance of becoming law. It awaits third reading in the Senate where its adoption
is practically pledged. It is held
up as a formality to permit progress
with reciprocal treaty negotiations
with the United States under which
that country will help keep prohibited goods reaching Canada from the
There is a crystalizing of opinion
to the effect that if any election is
coming this year it will take place
during the last week in August or
the first in September. The budget
will pretty well settle the point.
The capital is still buzzing with
comment upon Premier King's
declaration of April 3 to the effect
that his government would not
"give a single .cent to any Tory
Government," a declaration made
with reference to Federal help to
the provinces for unemployment
and other purposes. Protests have
poured in from five of the Provinces
of Canada which provide much more
than half the revenues of the coun
try. Later on Mr. King raised the
amount to "a five cent piece" but
even this has failed to soften the
Conservatives applaud what they
term his indiscretion and see in it a
solidification of their ranks in provinces where heretofor the federal
and provincial organizations have
not been notably co-operative. It
is quite possible that Mr. King will
modify, or explain the declaration
which is being exploited as "the
formal excommunication of five
provinces from all direct benefits
from the federal treasury." This
actual fact is, however, that Mr.
King cannot help any one province
through the treasury without proportionate help to the others so
that if the "Tory Provinces" are
shut off the same fate awaits the
Pensions legislation is still in the
hands of a special committee of the
House, with Senate members sitting
informally upon it. When the bill
comes back it will be much more
comprehensive than "the dole" for
unemployable veterans which was

the west coast of Vancouver Island has the unique
distinction of being won by a song. The Spanish
admiral who led an expedition against it in 1790, so
charmed the heart of the warlike Maquinna, Lord
of the Nootkas, with a theme song which he caused
hie merry men to sing over and over until the chief
was placated, that the Indian made him welcome
and gave him jurisdiction over the Sound and the
Islands. Since that date the coast of Vancouver
Island has become the rendezvous of tourists from
nil over the world.   Within easy reach of Vancouver,
Victoria and Seattle, it yet offers the attraction of
territory quite unspoilt by industrialism and a paradise of beautiful scenery and fruitful sport. As it
was when the Spaniards first sighted it, so it virtually is today. Canadian Pacific steamships of the

this coast, and make it easily and comfortably accessible to visitors. Lay-out shows Canadian Pacific

Alice Arm Is Presenting
Weird Appearance
Alice Ann at the present time
somewhat resembles a cyclone
stricken town. Houses are to be
seen standing at all angles, on lots,
streets and lanes, while Al. Falconer's tractor, Charlie Ripley's horses,
and hand winches snort and
strain to get them into their new
positions. Piles of logs, timbers
and discarded lumber are scattered
far aud wide, in the haste to get
everyone moved as soon as possible.
The whole cause of the commotion is that everyone is anxious
to move their buildings from the
streets and lanes of the new town-
site and locate on their new lots.
For a few days this week darkness alone put an end to operations
and stilled the vociferations of the
ardent workers.
As buildings are being moved
into place, the town is gradually
taking on a better appearance.
Within a few weeks it is expected
that all buildings will be located
on their rightful lots, and then it
will be up to the Public Works
Department to grade the streets
and construct sidewalks. When
this has been done we shall have
an orderly, well laid out town instead of a conglomeration of houses,
shacks and woodsheds as formerly

Copper Price Cut To
14c. Per Pound
The year-long fight by producers
of copper to maintain the 18 cents a
pound price for the metal came to
an end last week when the steadily
mounting supplies and the disinclination on the part of consumers to
buy metal at that figure forced a
cut to 14 cents a pound. The new
price for domestic metal is for delivery to the end of July.
The cut which brings copper to
lowest level since 1928 and is expected to result in buying by the
building industry and public utility
companies, clearing up the present
large stocks, came on the first anniversary of the stabilization of the
18-cent price. During the past few
months Wall Street has heard on
several occasions that the producers
were having difficulty in keeping
the price at 18 cents a pound, although leaders in the industry expressed confidence that this could
be accomplished.
