High School Win Anyox
Ladies' Basketball
With a total score of 26 points
against 24 by their opponents, the
High School won the series of two
games played to decide tbe Anyox
Ladies' Basketball Championship.
The first game was played on
Wednesday, the Students winning
by 10 to 7 after a stenuous game.
Both teams were out to win, and
so close was the checking on both
sides that the forwards had little
chance to score.
The deciding game on Friday was
perhaps the best exhibition of basketball the ladies have put up this
i season.
In the first half the Spooks, playing in an aggressive manner, ran
up a score of 13 to 4, and it looked
as though they had honors all sewed up.    On the resumption, however the Scholars took the offensive.
To determination they added speed
and cleverness,  and made the best
use of every opportunity.
The Spooks fought hard to avert
I defeat,   and   were unfortunate in
[their   efforts,   as frequently their
I shots missed by inches.   The game
ended with a score of 16 to 15 in
| favor of the Spooks, thus putting
I the High School two points ahead
on the series.
Be it said for these two teams
that all the games of the season
have been played in a most friendly
spirit, good sportsmanship predominating throughout.
Badminton Club Hold Wind-
Up Tournament
As a fitting close to a very successful season, the Anyox Badminton Club held a tournament on
Thursday, thirteen couples taking
First and second prizes were
competed for on two courts, the
winners on the one being Mrs. J.
Smith and Mr. Edwards, and on
the other Mrs. Stretton and Mr.
Elgood. The runners-up were Mrs.
Kirby and Mr. Ed Johnson, and
Mrs. Peters and Mr. H. Spencer
respectively. As in previous tournaments, the third court was utilized
throughout the evening. Some
very pretty play was witnessed
throughout the many games.
At the close of the tournament
the prizes were presented to the
winners and runners-up by Mr. S.
Peters. The refreshments served
by the committee were greatly

Local Sportsmen Wish For
Change In Duck Shooting
A petition is being circulated for
the signatures of all local sportsmen
with the object of advancing the
shooting season for ducks and geese
one month; that is, to commence on
October 1st., and conclude on January 15th., instead of from September 1st., to December 15th. It is
felt that there are seldom any ducks
seen in this district in the month of
September. The petition reads as
"We, the undersigned, being
residents of Anyox, Alice Arm, and
vicinity, hereby petition the Provincial Game Board to have the open
season for migratory game birds
(ducks and geese) extending from
October 1st., to January 15th., in
this portion of Atlin Electoral District."
The petition will circulate among
all those who were license holders
in this District last year, and a large
number of names already appear
on it.

ten years has held the position of
mine inspector for Northern B. C.
was superannuated at the end of
March. He has been succeeded by
Charles Graham, who for nine years
was superintendent of the Canadian
Colleries coal mines at Cumberland.
Mr. Shenton has decided to contest the Atlin riding as a labor candidate at the next provincial election. He is well known throughout
the north.
Coast  Batholith  Ores
Discussed At Lecture
By Dr. Mandy
In our last issue we published a
report of the lectures of Dr. J. T.
Mandy, resident mining engineer,
given at Alice Arm on Monday of
last week. Following is a report
of the lecture given on Tuesday
On Tuesday evening of last week
Dr. Mandy gave his last address on
mining. He dealt almost exclus
ively with the coast batholith.
The word batholith, he explained,
means depth rook. The coast batholith, in which occurs all the mines
of the coast area extends a distance
of 1100 miles and almost parallels
the coast. It commences near the
Fraser river, and cuts in at Terrace,
across to the Naas River, Alice
Arm, head of the Portland Canal.
Unik River, Stikine River, Taku
River, Carcross, and into the Yukon Territory.
This enormous mass of mineral
bearing rock was forced up from
the lower depths aud the ores contained in it were forced into the
crevices of the roof rocks above, at
the places of least resistance, causing ore veins, etc. Erosion laid
bare part8 of the batholith and so
brought to light the numerous ore
Dr. Mandy explained the coast
botholith from west to east; and
stated that the eastern portion is
more exteusively mineralized. The
Kitsumgalum valley, Alice Arm
and Stewart are on the eastern
contract. He also explained how
some ore deposits are not yet ex
posed by erosion, while others have
been wiped out by tlie same process.
Parts of Ontario, the Ural mountains in Russia, and Saxony, all
have batholith intrusions he said.

Continued from page 1
silver ore bodies were found in close
proximity were fully explained.
Dr. Mandy touched upon the ab-
sence of gold in the Kitsault river
silver ores, and while stating that
it was disappointing, said that it
was very possible that gold ores
would be found on the west side of
the Upper Kitsault river, if subjected to intensive prospecting. Here
he said, occurs a later granitic int
rusion, which is very favorable for
gold, and mentioned the ores of the
Vanguard, Lucky Strike, Home-
stake and other properties, all
carrying good gold values.
The different ore occurrences
were then explained, and the
speaker drew diagrams of sills,
stocks bosses and laccolites. The
best areas in which to prospect
were also explained.
At the conclusion of the address,
Dr. Mandy gave his audience some
general advice on mining, in addition to Sliding and developing an
ore body, Optimism, he said is
essential to mining. Do not let the
depressed price ol' silver and copper
make you become down-hearted.
When the' price of silver again
rises to former levels, Alice Arm
will become a busy camp, but in
tliH meantime, prospect for gold.
You have an excellent area in the
Upper Kitsault Country on the
west side.
But bear in mind, however, he
said, that the discovery of ore
bodies do not always make a oamp.
When selling a property the owner must be willing to co-operate
with the buyer. This is as essential to success as a rich ore body.
I know, he said, a prospector who
has worked years in the hills is
entitled to all he can get, but there
is sometimes a difference in what
he should get and what he can
get. Often a lack of co-operation
with the men who are willing to
spend their money on a property
has killed a sale. It should be remembered that when the definite
size of the ore bodies are not
known, only a nominal value can
be given.
In speaking from personal experience, he said that he had been
forced to turn down promising
properties, simply because the
prices and terms were not satisfactory. In Ontario, a few years
ago, exorbitant prices were asked
on several properties, and deals
were blocked. The mines became
dormant and are still lying idle.
Will build Refinery To Treat
Radium Ores
A refinery for the extraction of
radium from Great Bear Lake
pitchblende may be established in
Ontario by the Eldorado Gold
Mines, according to information
received by the National Resources
Department of the Canadian Nat
ional Railways. The company
has ongaged the services of a Belgian expert, A. N. Pochon, and
when he returns from Europe in
June will be considered for a refinery. The plant will include crushing and grinding machinery as
well as the chemical equipment
necessary for radium extraction.

is that our friends aren't spending

pauies don't want to steal yourlp
property, he said. They want to
do business. That is why they
examine it. But they want a fair
show. Dr. Mandy gave illustrations of the risk involved by a
mining company when developing
a prospect, and again stated that
the owner if he really wishes to sell
his property , must co-operate with
Dr. Mandy also touched on the
good common sense that should be
used by a prospector. In order to
be successful a prospector must
have optimism. But, he said,
temper your success witli good
judgement. A prospector generally wants to believe that his vein
goes down and down, but some
times work shows that this does
not occur. When it does not, have
courage to admit you havn't got a
mine and quit. Also don't try and
kid an engineer by sending him a

Always go a little on the low side.

Another piece of advice he im
parted to his audience, was not to
form a theory in regard to size of
ore bodies unless founded on facts.
Don't fool yourself, he said, that
a small ore body on the surface
widens as it gets deeper. Why
not say when big on top that it is
smaller underneath. It is just as
likely, but no prospector wishes to
think so.
In concluding his address, Dr
Mandy said that it had given him
great pleasure to deliver his lectures before such attentive audiences, and expressed his thanks to
all those who had attended. He
also conveyed his thanks to the
looal Chamber of Mines for making
arrangements for the lectures, and
also to T. W. Falconer, for the use
of the hall, and whioh he had
greatly appreciated.

"The  Devil  to  Pay"
Will Show On
The Beach Theatre will present
on Tuesday Ronald Colman's talking picture, said to be in a vein new
to the star, which bears the title
"The Devil To Pay." It is an original screen story and dialogue by
the famous English dramatist, Frederick Lonsdale, well known on this
side of the Atlantic for his numerous
stage successes, "Aren't We All?',
"Spring Cleaning, "The Last of
Mrs. Cheney," and others.
The picture, described as a sophisticated comedydrama,has to do with
the life and loves of Willie Leeland,
played by Ronald Coleman, wayward son of a wealthy and unsympathetic British peer who, in an
effort to make something of his
adventurous son, gives him a start
in South Africa. The story opens
with Willie, disgusted with his exile
and longing tor the lights of London,
auctioning his belongings to obtain
money enough for a passage home.
Never having experienced real love,
he decides that he will marry a
