Tennis Semi-Finals for
Men Played in Anyox
The Tennis Tournament for the
Men's open singles has now got
down to the Final round, with H.
Ballion &D. Cole jr. as finalist?.
On Sunday morning las,t, ToWn-
shend played Brown in the 3rd.
round winning by the soore of' 6-2:
6-4, this game bringing him into
the semi-finals against Cole.
Ou Sunday afternoon both semifinal games were played,'' and
although   neither  of   the   games
I brought forth any high standard
1 of tennis, yet they were hotly, contested, five sets in each having to
be played before either could claim
We were fortunate in having
fine weather, almost too fine, as old
Sol outshone himself, and seemed
to throw out more heat than usual
much to the discomfort of the players.
Iu the Ballion-Lee game, Lee
started out very strongly, taking
the first set at 6^0, but in the seoond
set Ballion came babkand won 6-1.
1 The third set was olosely contested
Ballion winning by 7-5. The 4th.
set was won by Lee, 6-2, who was
at this time playing a very s strong
game, so much so, that his supporters were hopeful that he might
pull "the chestnut out of the fire"
and win the fifth aiid deciding
set, but Ballion seemed to gain
strength in this set, Lee weakened,
aiidfinally had to knuckle down
to hisumoreT^Qu|.hf «1. (>ppaii|iiJt^
The Tennis was brilliant in spots
and caused a lot of applause from
the very interested, and if I may
[ say so, very sportsmanlike little
I crowd, but outside of these' spots"'
both of the players seemed to play
I too carefully, being more intent on
simply getting the ball into the
court, than they were of making
good placements and hitting the
ball harder. This is a fault so very
common among most players in
Tournament games and undoubtedly shows a two great tendency to
I win at any price, even at the saori-
fice of the tennis one is capable of,
and more important still, of true
I sportsmanship.
The  game  between  Cole   and
j Townshend developed into, another
ding' dOng battle, going the full
length of-five sets, Cole eventually
winning by'the soore of 7-5: 4:6:
This game wa3 like the other
brilliant in spots, especially ;sqme
of Cole's returns from seemingly
impossible positions. The failing
of being too oareful is not a fault
of this player. He plays to win
his point, but at the same time' he
does not alter his style of play in
order to make this certain. vHis
service was very godd, as it always
is and in the last Bet he put into it
a "do and die" sort of attitude that
worked well, so well that it (won
the deciding set for him,
The final match in this tournament Will be, played, weather permitting, on Sunday the 16th.
September at 1 p. in.
The game should be the best of
the season, and it ip hoped that as
many people as possible will'try
and make a point of being there,
and by so doing, show their interest
in tennis in Anyox and also add an
incentive for either of the players
to win.      ,.
These Cup games have, to a
certain extent, overshadowed the
Ladder games, but now1 it is to be
hoped that all will make a special
effort to, play a8 many games as
they can while the fine weather
lasts, and iii this way«nakeit possible for them to bedome eligible for
the prices in the, Ladder events.
Development Work
on Silver Lead
James Niok is now busy developing the Silver Lead property on
Copper Creek, and will drive a
tunnel under the surface showings
in the bed bf the creek. Beoent
assays of samples taken from the
property have given returns of 50
ozs. silver per ton and 60 cents in
gold. These are the first assays
ever taken on the property and
are very enoouragingi Thesurfaoe
showings extend for a long distance
up the hill, and development work
will undoubtedly prove up a considerable tonnage of ore.
The Alice Arm Freighting Co.
packed in half a ton of supplies
during the week. A new cabin
has been built on the property, a
good trail has also been built from
the Illiance Biver trail, and everything is in readiness for development work.
Alice Arm Wing Dam
Will Soon Start
It is understood that work on
the wing dam above the town will
commence as soon as the Upper
Kitsault bridge; is completed,
whioh will be only a short time.
Mr. MoMasters, who is ia oharge
of constructing the bridge, will
then proceed to Stewart, and complete the big Bear river bridge,
which will take about two months.
At its completion, if present plans
mature, he will return to Alice
Arm, and commence the construction of the lower Kitsault Biver
Mr. J. Steven, distriot engineer,
has completed his work in the
Atlin and Dease Lake country,
and has returned to Stewart.
He will later visit Alice Arm and
outline the work on the Kitsault
bridge. «   " '
Dance Held at Alice
Arm Hotel
Alice Arm Having
Prosperous Summer
Despite the fact that the purveyors of blue ruin Were busy during
the early spring; Alice ..Arm camp
is having a very prosperous sum'
mer, thank you. Labor has been
at a premium for several months
and it has been necessary to send
outside in order to procure men for1
government road work, a state of
affairs which has not existed for
many years.
Logging has been very active
during the summer., employing a
large number of men in various
camps chief of which is the camp
of the Abbotsford Logging Co.
employing about sixty men,
While mining, has been rather
quiet, headway has been made.
The Homestake Mining Co. are
now employing sixteen men on
their property at the Kitsault
Glacier. The Esperanza has been
steadily working throughout the
summer, and the Keystone Mining
Co. recently commenced operations
on the Sunset property on Roundy
Creek. Work on this property/
has been suspended, however, until
the arrival of Mr. Thornly, Mining
engineer for the company, aiid also
until a trail fit to use paok. horses
on is built.
A large amount of development
work has been done during the
summer by property owners, and
some wonderful strikes of high
grade ore have been made on different properties. These strikes
are not prospectors dreams or hot
air pedaled for the sake of turning
a property to a hot air company
but good honest strikes with ore in
place for anyone to see.
Several mining engineers and men
conneoted with mining have visited
the distriot during the past few
months, and instead of acting like
a clam as is generally the ease when
they receive a bad impression,
'they admit that the camp has the
earmarks of a good mining oamp,
and that in the near future a large
number of these properties Will be

September 7th, a daughter.
The dance held last Saturday
evening at the Alice Arm Hotel,
proved to be another of those delightful dances whioh are a speciality of pioneer mining camps.
Everyone was there to join in the
merriment and everyone had a
good time. The orohestra, composed of Mrs. T. W. Falooner,
Messrs. C. E. Hutchinson,, E. B.
Oatman, and J. D. Oimeron were
in their usual form., Mr. Geo.
Bruggy acted as master of ceremonies. A large crowd, including
a number of Anyox visitors, were
present, and everyone admitted it
to be one bf the jolliest hops held
this season..

Industries Needed
Good roads and lots of them
are essential to the prosperity of
any country and this is particularly
true of the province of British
Columbia, where conditions are
such, that in many districts it is
impossible to make connections one
place with another unless a good
road is built. A programme of
road building is being outlined so
that settlers can be brought to the
land in many of the agricultural
districts, but the fact should not be
overlooked, that without the local
markets, the farmer can not exist,
The fostering of industries and the
development of mines are as essential to the prosperity of the farmer
as anyone else. Develop the
mines of this rich northern country
and so provide markets for farm
produce, and the agricultural lands
will soon be all under cultivation.
Steel Industry
Held Up
The establishment of a steel
industry pn the coast, is one of the
soundest propositions that has been
proposed, and it is a pity that some
plan can not be worked out. The
establishment of a steel industry
would mean direct employment for
thousands of men and indirectly
more thousands would benefit by
supplying material,   etc.   for the
works and the employees. It
would mean that British Columbia
would take her place among the
manufacturing provinces of the
Dominion, and having direct water
communication with the teeming
millions of the Orient would find a
ready market for her goods. Up
to the present, the establishment of
a steel industry has been killed,
and it is claimed that the American
Steel Trust, and the C. P. R. are
responsible for the killing, the former, so that they can control
prices in the west and Orient, and
the latter, are not going to lose the
profitable business of hauling steel
from the east without a struggle.
The slogan is, throttle big industries'
in British Columbia, so that we
have to haul it from the east.
With such a narrow-minded policy
being played by the C. P. R. is it
any wonder our young men are
forced to seek employment under
a foreign flag, or that our farm
lands are vacant for lack of home
markets, and that instead , of our
population increasing by leaps and
bounds—as it should do—it is still in
the creeping stage.
Government Printing Office
Reorganization of the government
printing office here has been completed, by Hon. Dr. McLean, provincial
secretary. Under the new system it
will be possible to tell to the cent the
cost of every, piece of printing
undertaken. The government printing office is the largest in the province and is considered one of the most
modern on the. continent. The service
costs approximately $210,000 per year.
Among other work handled is the.
printing of the B. C, Gazette, the
largest publication in the province
outside the daily papers,
Why Fire Insurance Rates are High
The average annual per capita cost
from fires in United States, is $2.26,
while Canada loses $2.73 per capita by
Are; Spain, $1.86; France, 97 cents;
England, 6i cents; Germany, 28 cents,
and the Netherlands only 11 cents.

The key to success is hard, work, but
use your head as well as your hands. v<
Probably no question relating to
public affairs has stirred up so much
interest in recent years in this province as that of freight rates reductions.
The matter vitally affects the very
life of British Columbia and the success
of the government's fight would be
reflected immediately in the industrial
and commercial development of, the
province. Following Premier Oliver's
return from Ottawa, where he attended
before the Privy Council, he stated
that the outlook was. most promising
but even if the Federal Government
did hot settle the matter fairly the
provincial government had another
card to play, a direct appeal to the

Minister Takes Exception
Hon. T. D. Patnllo, minister of lands
takes objection to the wording of a
report of statements made at the Empire Forestry Conference that logging
was a wasteful operation in British
Columbia. He said that the leaving of
a large amount of timber in the woods
was due to the fact that a certain percentage of timber was not suitable for
the markets open to B. C. lumber, but
on the whole lumbering in this province
was being earned on most economically.

Oopper sales for export by both Oopper Export Association and independents during the current week have been
the largest for any week in several
months, Buying is not confined to
any particular country, but has been
well distributed' among England,
Prance, Germany, Italy, Sweeden
and Australia. Orient also has been
taking small tonnage Foreign inquiries
are active, indicating that buying will
continue. \Sales by copper export
association during last 24 hours have
been largest for any similar period of
the week.
Domestic demand continues good,
particularly in the brass industry.
Manufacturers are getting in new
orders* which has resulted in activity
in copper market. Much of the buy ing
is for last qurrter.
While some copper has been sold at
14 cents a pound delivered, producers
are quoting at 14 1-8 cents. Attractive
business might result in lafcge sales
at 14. cents, but no copper, except
probably a few small lots, is being
offered at this figure.
Producers are taking an optimistic
view of the situation. They feel that
the buying, whioh has been so long
postponed both here and abroad, is
under way, Another week of buying
on the scale that has taken place this
week will give, the market strength
and effect the price.
Electolytic for domestic delivery is
14 to 141-4 cents a pound delivered to
the end of October. Price aside ship
New York is 141-8 to 14 1-4 delivered.

There was a decided improvement in
industry throughout, British Columbia last year, according to the fourth
annual report of the department of
industries, just published by the
government. There was also a
marked renewal of interest in the vast
wealth 6f raw moterialsof the pro*
Included in the report is an elabor<
ate directory of products manufactured
in British Columbia, a work which
required a great deal of research and
time on the part of the department.
There are 482 different articles manufactured, with 2718 establishments
operating in the province.- During the
year the department of industries distributed 15,000 copies of the directory.
The . report points out that the
average B. 0. product is equal to, if
not better than, the article, imported,
or brought here from eastern Canada
a point often unapreciated by local
consumers, who would save money
and encouroge home industry by selecting B. 0. products where possible.
The minister of industries points out
that copper, zinc, lumber, lead, silver,
fish and particularly agricultural, products. 'At the same time' canned
soups, vegetables and •• fruits are
imported in large quantities.
