Big  Wrestling  Match
Monday Thrills Huge
Anyox Audience
That the bout was a thriller
that both were cautious of the
other—neither giving the slightest
opening—that neither was superior to pin his man to the mat; that
the referee's and judges' decision of
a draw shared the feelings of the
huge audience present, was the
general opinion after the greatest
wrestling bout ever staged in
Anyox,. on Monday night, when
Stubbs anil Dooherty (not Doherty)
wrestled for 60 minutes before a
breathless audience, at the Mine
Club entertainment.
Tlie bout was governed by pin
falls, which means that the shoulders must be pinned to the mat for
a space of three seconds. The first
two falls out of three to decide.
Failing a fall, the decision to be
made on points, in which rolling
falls count. The bout to be 6 ten
minute rounds in case no falls were
made, with 3 minute intervals.
The weight of the contestants,
were Stubbs 138 pounds, Docherty
139.
Both men entered the ring in the
pink of condition and were given
a great ovation. Dick Stubbs has
appeared many times before an
Anyox audience, while this is the
first time Anyox fans had seen
Dooherty in action. The supporters of Stubbs were certain of a
victory, and those who knew Docherty were sure that he would dispose of the local champion in short
time.
At the conclusion of the second
round, all forecasts were completely
upset as the proverbal house of
cards, and until the finish the issue
was completely in the balance.
A more evenly matched pair has
seldom been seen in the ring. Both
were equally even in tactics, both
showed surprising swiftness in extricating themselves from a difficult
position. Both gave an odd chance,
but each lacked the slight superiority to pin his man.
Until the 5th round Dooherty
was the aggressor.   He obtained a
rolling fall in the 1st round and
..nother in the second.   In the 3rd
lind 4th rounds neither obtained
,n advantage, although there were
[ashes of clever mat work in which
joth   extricated themselves with
•emarkable swiftness from   awkward predicaments.   Stubbs show-
£ig   to   more  advantage  in  this
•espect.
Stubbs started aggressive work
|n the 5th round and obtained two
rolling falls, whioh evened honors,
"n the 6th round neither contestant
lout loose" on any trick he may
|iave been holding back and honors
ere even.
The bout proved that in Dooh-
jrty, Stubbs met a worthy oppon-
int. Of the two, Dooherty was
mdoubtedly in better condition,
ut he did not seem as anxious to
(o to the mat as did Stubbs. The
tter gave ground throughout the
>ut while they were on their feet,
it seemed willing to mix it when
|i the mat. The elevated ring was
io small, which was a handicap,
lo sum oonoisely Docherty couldn't
h Stubbs nor oould Stubbs hold
[oeherty.
W. R. Lindsay, general superin-
|ndent, was the referee, whioh exiting position he filled to the sat-
Laotion of all. He is a wrestler of
Insiderable experienoe, and thor-
fghly acquainted with the fine
tints of the game.
JThe judges were Al. LaFortune

Wolf Mine May Develop
Into Heavy Shipper
Silver Ore
The Wolf mine, adjacent to the
town of Alice Arm, and operated
by J. Fiva and associates, is being
developed into a shipping mine
which may assume considerable
proportions.
The crosscut tunnel has been
driven to the hanging wall of
the ore vein, a distance of 155 feet
from the portal. The footwall of
the vein was encountered at a distance of 125 feet. The vein averages two feet in width and the
thirty feet of crosscutting shows
that ore values are persistent
through the entire 30 feet. The
values are in native, brittle and
ruby silver, and yellow copper.
Drifting has been commenced on
the north where a fault about '4
feet wide is being crosscut. Drifting
will be oontinued.
Operations at the mine are being
handled in an extremely efficient
manner.
The waste dump is being extended towards the railway, -where ore
bunkers and a sorting shed will be
built. It is planned to mine the
entire width of the vein, and ship
the ore in bulk, thus eliminating
the heavy expense of sacking.
A new powder magazine has
been built above the tunnel. It is
made of logs and is substantial.
J. Fiva aiid his hard working
colleagues, are deserving of great
commendation for their pertina-
cionsness, An examination yesterday ot the mine showed that it is
highly probable that the Wolf will
develop into a shipper of considerable importance.
Tunnel Encounters Ore on
Alice Arm Fraction
An examination was made yesterday of the Alice Arm fraction,
which is being operated by 0. Flint
and L. Paulcer. This property
joins the Wolf near Faljs Creek.
The crosscut tunnel now being
driven has encountered one ore
vein about 8 inches wide, but up to
present the values are not very high
This tunnel is now in 55 feet and is
being extended to encounter
another vein, which is four feet
distant from the above mentioned
one. Higher values are expected
to be obtained from this second
vein, as native silver ore has been
taken from the surface.
Work at Toric Commences
Work started in earnest at the
Torio mine on Monday when
additional men were put to work.
The hauling up of the timbers necessary for the construction of the
concentrating mill and ore bunkers
has commenced, and this work
will undoubtedly be speeded up so
that the mill can be put in operation as soon as possible.
Russell.
Standing room in the hall was
at a premium, and the large audience registered its approval in a
hearty manner, when the boys were
on the mat
In an interview the following
morning, Stubbs stated that he
was willing to again meet Docherty
and stated that if a return match
should be made this summer, it may
be possible to hold it outdoors and
avoid the heat of an enclosed room.
Anyox  Mill Increases
Output tol800 Tons
Bonanza Being Diamond Drilled
The concentrating mill of the
Granby Co. at Anyox is now treating 1800 tons of ore per day instead
of 1200 tons as formerly. The new
units were put into operation on
Friday the 7th. The capacity of'
the mill will be further enlarged,
and it is expected that at the beginning of next year tlie mill will
be treating from 2500 to 3000 tons
of ore per day.
The construction of' the new
sintering plant is proceeding,
structural steel now being assembled. The style of roasting pans
will be changed.
The Granby Co. have outlined a
programme of development work
on the Bonanza, consisting of about
2000 feet of diamond drilling. The
Bonanza is located on the west
side of the smelter, and 500,000 tons
of ore were previously blocked out.
Its percentage of copper content is
slightly higher than the Hidden
Creek mine.
Ed. Ashton Again Honored
Mr. Ed Ashton, the popular
caretaker of the Beach gymnasium,
received another pleasant surprise
during the week, when the sum of
$25.00 was presented to him by a
number of those using the gymnasium, during the winter months.
This useful sum was given him as
a token of appreciation for the able
and courteous manner in which he
conducted affairs.

First Football  League
Game on Tuesday
Mine Win from Beach
The Anyox footballers got' away
to a good start on Tuesday evening
when the Mine defeated the Beach
in a close and hard fought game by
the odd goal in five. There was a'
large turnout of fans, which augers
well for the sport this season and
on the form shown by both teams
ou their initial appearance the
game will be worthy of the support
of everyone. Archie Morton had
the honor of opening the season by
kicking off, which he did in a very
able manner, proving that he has
lost hone of his old cunning at the
pigskin game.
Many new players were seen on
both teams, all of whom show lots
of promise. Walker, a center half
who hailsfrom Norway, was exceptionally good as also was Parker,
an inside left from Nanaimo. Other
newcomers on the Mine aggregation are: Stultz and Victor fullbacks, and Jones aud Hunter, halfbacks.
The Beach produced five new
players on their roster namely,
Pinkney, Oarmichle and Law-son
half-backs, and Dunn and McColl
forwards. Hard luck was all that
kept the losers from a draw, the
unfortunate incident occurred in
the second half when the score
was tied at two all, Craggs just
missed getting his head to the ball
enough to clear managing only to
deflect it enough to give his own
goally no chance to save. Wally
Hunter was responsible for btoth
the remaining goals scored by the
winners. By the looks of things,
Hunter is out to make a name for
himself as a center forward.- Hogben notched the first goal for the
Beach on a shot from close in which
gave Evans no chance. Ellison
netted the first counter. Baker
Robertson was the referee and
handled the whistle in a highly
satisfactory manner, never being in
doubt at any time and suffered no
adverse criticism from either side.
Teams:
Mine: Evans, Stultz, Victor,
Jones, Waller, Hunter, Cane,
Barnes, W. Hunter, Parker and
Dearlove.

The 10th anniversary of the
Alice Arm Hotel was not allowed

All Records Shattered
at Mine Club May
10 Entertainment
The proud boast made by the
Anyox Mine Club that the May
10th entertainment was to be the
biggest ever staged in Anyox, was
undoubtedly fulfilled, perhaps to a
larger degree than was anticipated
by even the most sanguine of the
organizers.
Four solid hours of entertainment
was what the patrons received on
Monday night. Everything was
good, the singing, musical selections, boxing, and the wrestling
match was a thriller, and well
worth alone the modest 50 cents
charged for admission.
There were roughly 500 people
present, the hall being filled to
capacity. The excellent entertainment provided and the expeditious
manner in which it was oarried out
reflects great credit on the part of
the officials responsible who deserve
the warmest congratulations.
Billy Reynold's juveniles featured
the sporting items, a particularly
hearty reception being given the
bout between Rnssel McMillan and
Henry Deeth. The lads displayed
rare boxing skill, were, seldom in
clinches, aud took every chance
given them. Altogether a pretty
boxing bout.
Glyn Owen and Tony Calderoni,
were others of the gang of youthful
sportsmen from ''upon the hill."
Jimmie Arsoott and Jack Barnes

in the Elks' Hall, when the members entertained their wives aud

artistically decorated in red white
and blue.
Dancing commenced at 9 p.m.
led by Bro. Wilson and continued
until 11 p.m. when everyone- adjourned to the Dug-out, where a

helped to make this event such a
success.
It is the intention of the Lodge
to put on another dance on May
24th.

10 Entertainment
Continued from Page 1
and Glory Hole, slammed at one
another to beat , the two giving the audience the greatest  kick
in the world.
Of the musical items, Bud Sheen,
whose distinctive singing has now
become known, since the Mine Club
"discovered" him some two season's
ago, captivated his audience with
that quiet method of delivery which
is so facinating. Another favorite
with talent unbounded, was Jimmy
Mitchell in a couple of rousing
songs, who was laterin the evening
followed by Benny Brown and a
recitation,
New comers to the Anyox public
were Evan Jenkins, a "nut" comedian par excellence, who created
roars of merriment, and Fred Scot-
ney, a member of the "College
Trio." Fred after hiring a couple of
tenors and an accompanist for
his act, fired the whole bunch, and
attempted to carry on alone. This
proved however to be impossible,
for he agreed that after all, they
were "all wonderful" and later informed his audience that he was a
"Bingo Boy—down on the farm"
His colleagues of the trio were, Dave
Wilson and Billy Jack.
Rounding off this really
splendid bill of diversified
entertainment was the Melodians orchestra, featuring "Valencia" as an overture, and providing
musical jems from Otto Neiderman
and W. Jack (violins) and Steve
Jones (saxpohone).
An outstanding feature of the
evening was the programme running smoothly to schedule, the
affair being stage managed to a
nicety. From behind the scenes
praise is due to Verge Moore, chairman of the Mine Club sports committee, and his able assistants,
Billy Reynolds and Phil Harris; an
army volunteer help readily given;
the use of the Reoreation Hall; the
chairmanship of Dr. Learoyd; the
presence of a huge audience, all
helped to make "Monday the 10th"
historical. Incidentally, the Mine
Club's "publicity expert" proved
absolutely correct in his forecasts.
Ladies numbered nearly 100 in an
audience of five times that number.
Following is the programme:
1. Orchestra selection.
2. Solo, Evan Jenkins. "I love
the ladies." Encores "Paddy Mc-
Ginty's Goat." Parody on "Show
me the way to go home."
3. Solo and comedy. The college trio. Fred Scotney, Dave
Wilson, Billy Jack. "We are
wonderful."
4. Boxing by Billy Reynolds'
juveniles. Tony Calderoni and
Glyn Owen.
5. Solo, J. Mitchell. "Polly
Wolly Doodle all day." Encore,
"Sunshine of your smile."
6. Violin Solo. Otto Neiderman.
Encore given.
7. Boxing, Arscott and Barnes,
the former being the aggressor.
8. The College Trio, "Down
on the Bingo Farm."
9. Recitation. Benny Brown.
"The man from Athabasca" Encore
''The bachelor's dream in Church."
10. Boxing. Russell McMillan
and Henry Deeth. The youthful
boxers, who battered each other
for three rounds, both trying for a
knockout. A bout full of action.
Honors were even.
11. Songs by Bud Sheen and
ukelele. "The prisoner's song."
Encores. "On top of the world.'
Has anybody seen my girl."
12. Saxophone Solo. Steve
Jones.
13. Solo. Evan Jenkins. Parody
on "in the shade of the old apple
tree.
14. Violin Solo. Billy Jack
Encored.
15. Boxing. Ernie Dearlove and
Sid Peters. A bout full of action
from start to finish. In which the
contestants extended themselves
and clouted each other to a "fare-ye-
well." Both possessed a hard
wallop, skill and pluck. Referee's
decision was a draw.

Big Sullivan Plant to be
Increased
Thirty per cent, inorease in the
capacity of the Sullivan concentra.
ter is the object of a development
programme which already has been
put under way, according to A. G.
Langley, resident engineer for the
Kootenay mining district.
When work is completed the
Sullivan will be milling 4000 tons
of ore daily, and employing about
1000 men he reports. Present capacity is about 3000 tons a day.
The ore bodies, which are considered to be replacement deposits in
quartzite, are of immense proportions. The south ore body having
1 been developed for about 700 feet
I along its strike, has a width of
between 30 and 40 feet of solid sulphide ore, while the north ore body
which promises to be still larger,
[ has a width iii places of 200 feet.
"These ore bodies are being
worked from an adit tunnel about,
two miles long, which gains about
1500 feet on the dip of the vein
below the upper workings from
which latter ore is also being mined.
"The ore is a finely crystalline
mixture of lead, zinc and iron sulphides running about 3 oz. in silver
per ton, 11.5 per cent, lead and 10.5
I per cent, zino."
[ Marmot Metals Again Starts
Operations
Portland Canal News
Angus McLeod. managing direc-
I tor of the Marmot Metals Co. visited the property during the early
part of the week, and laid out the
work for a crew of men who are to
[ leave for the property tomprrow.
i For the time being, the work will
be confined to building a trail up
on the east end of tlie property and
J the erection of a camp there to fac-
I ilitate a continuance of last year's
exploration work, preparatory to
laying out a development campaign.
Radio Record Established
An interesting record for long
Idistance radio reception on a moving train was established recently
(when the Continental Limited,
jthe transcontinental express of the
nadian National Railways, pick-
hd up and held for thirty minutes a
Broadcast from Vera Crnz. Mexico,
inst as the train was leaving Hol-
llon, Alberta, en route to Vancouver.
The dominion collected $120,222,-
154 in duty last year; in 1900 the
jotal was $29,106,980.
I Spelling it alright is all wrong.
Finances of Province in
Prosperous Condition
Details of financial progress of British Columbia during the last decade
have just been made public here. These
show in brief that for every $100 bond
the Province sold in the financial market ten years ago it only received
$86.20 in cash, while ever since 1919
provincial credit has improved to such
an extent that the average value received in cash for the same $100 bond
'works out at $98.10
Other statistics included in the
statement show that in 1910 current
obligations unpaid amounted to $2,
000,000, that accrued obligationsunpaid
amounted to a similiar sum, that
Pacific Great Eastern bonds were
guaranteed to the extent of $48,000,000
that there was a shortage in sinking
funds of no less a sum than $628,800,
It is also a fact that a civil Service
salary list at that time absorbed something like 8 per cent, of the revenue of
the Province, that an anticipated deficit of $5,41X1,000 on current account
for the year had to be faced, and that
there was only tlie small sum of $54,-
000 in actual cash in the treasury.
The situation today, however, is entirely different. All the current obligations of the Province are paid in
full, and all its accruing obligations
are satisfactorily provided for. The
sinking funds also are all paid up to
date, and there is a surplus of $1,000-
000 in that particular account.
Huge Total of World's
Copper Production
The world's production of smelter
copper in the first quarter of 1926 is
calculated at 781,496,000 pounds with
an output of 270,180.000 pounds in
March, an increase of 17,830,000 over
February. The figures are based on
returns from countries w.hichfurnished
about 97 per cent, of the world's output
in 1923 and 1924.
First-quarter production last year
was 777,288,000 pounds and in the same
period the year before 718,048,000. The
output for the first three months of
1926 was at an annual rate of 3,126,384,-
000 pounds, The March output in the
United States was 161,408,000 pounds
against 151,260,000 in February. Chile
and Peru were the next largest with
about 45,000,000 pounds. There was a
substantial increased production also
in Canada.
Salmon exports from the Province
of British Columbia during the past
year were the largest recorded for most
years and amounted to 1,571,000 cases.
This compares with shipments of
1,525,000 cases in 1924: 929.000 cases in
1923; 794,000 cases in 1922 and 939,000
cases in 1921.
Quite Right!
The old lady was feeling ill, so the
maid sent for the doctor.
"What's the matter with your mistress?" he inquired.
"I don't know, sir," answered the
maid, "but she says she wants to die."
'Ah," said the doctor, "then you did
quite right in sending for me.
