Big Crowd Enjoys High Class
Boxing and Wrestling Bouts
Dick Stubbs, Local Wrestler, Defeats Vancouver Champion
The Sports event staged by the
looal B. P. 0. E. on Friday night
last was a huge success One of
the largest crowds ever present in
the history of the town was there
to enjoy the six high class events
that composed the programme.
The first item on the programme
was a three round bout between
Sid Peters of the Beach and M.
Gamadina of the Mine. The boys
put up a nice exhibition of the
manly art, the decision being a
The next number was in the
paper-weight class, when Sonny
Morgan of Prince Rupert and Sid
Brown of Anyox went three fast
rounds to a draw. Both boys were
willing mixers and consequently
the fans were given- action from
start to finish. Morgan was forced
to give away about ten pounds,
but put up a game and clever battle
against his equally cleveropponent.
The feature boxiug match of the
evening, or what was to be, turned
out to be more or less of a tame
affair. No blows of any consequence were struck during the
fracas which was brought toa close
half way in the fifth round when
Gurvioh of Prince Rupert landed
what appeared to be a foul blow.
Kirk's handlers claimed a foul and
after the judges and the doctors
held a consultation it was decided
upon to call the bout a draw.
There were two preliminary
wrestling matches to the main
event, the first brought together
Gus Make and'Gus Mikeli, both of
the Mine. These boys put up a
fine exhibition of the Greco- Roman
style of wrestling, the former winning after four minutes in the second round with the only fall of the
In the second preliminary, J.
Salmich of the Beach, won from
E. Bjorking of the  Mine in two
straight falls. The first in four
minutes and the second in one
minute and ten seconds.
Diok. Stubbs, local aspirant for
wrestling honorH in the forthcoming Amateur Tournament at New
Westminster, demonstrated his
right to enter when he defeated
Allan Kelton of Vancouver (present
holder of the B. C. 135 pound
championship) gaining onefallafter
thirty-eight, minutes of fast and
clever mat work. Stubb's superior
weight was a big factor in his win
as Kelton was forced to concede
eighteen pounds.
The latter is no doubt the
cleverest exponent of the mat game
ever before an Anyox audience,
fast as a streakand always wearing
a smile, which made a big hit with
the local fans. Both boys were in
fine shape and gave the fans an exhibition of wrestling that will long
be remembered and was well worth
the price of admission.
The only fall of the match came
in the last round immediately
before the finish with a half nelson
and wrist lock.
In between the different numbers
of the programme the Anyox Band
enlivened proceedings with several
snappy selections, which were
greatly appreciated by those present. Mr. T. J. Kirkwood was the
chairman, F. S. McNioholas and
W. Reynolds were the judges, and
Dr. D. R. Learoyd was timekeeper.
Charlie Docherty was the third
man in the ring for the main
wrestling event. Allan Kelton
handled the boxing bouts and Dick
Stubbs refereed the wrestling preliminaries.
Congratulations are due to the
Elks for undertaking an enterprise
of this nature, and also to be able
to show an account on the right
side of the ledger.
Vicious Practice Resorted to
In Destroying Dogs
Five dogs were poisoned in Alice
Arm during the week. This brings
the total number already killed to
fourteen. The poisonings have been
spread over the past year, and during
that time some valuable dogs have
been destroyed. Numerous cats
have also passed to their happy
hunting grounds.
The nefarious practice of dropping
poisoned meat around the town is
disgusting, for its continuity clearly
shows that it is done simply to
gratify a lust to kill something. It
is possible that any small child would
pick up a piece of poisoned meat,
or bread and butter that is used.
It is strictly against the law and the
perpetrator will undoubtedly get a
maximum sentence when he is

satisfactory to all those present.
Gymnasium Boys and .Girls
Presented With Sweaters
Presentation Made to Departing Anyox People
On Saturday March 26th. a very
pleasant evening was put in at the
home of Mr and Mrs. John Swanson by the many friends of Mr. C.
I. Cook and Dr. H. A. Simmons,
who had the pleasure of congregating together previous tq their departure from Anyox. They were
both presented with very handsome
club bags by those present.
Mr. Cook has been with the
Granby Co. at Anyox for the past
three years, holding the position
of Assistant Mine Superintendent.
He has taken a position with the
Consolidated Copper Mines at
Kimberly, Nevada. Dr. Simmons

Dr. G. S. Macdonald Will
Succeed Dr. Simmons
Dr. H. A. Simmons, who has
practiced as a dentist in Anyox for
the past five years, has decided to
leave Anyox, and will open offices
in Vanoouver. During his stay in
the north he made a large number
of friends who regret his departure.
He is being succeeded by Dr. G.
S. Macdonald, who is an expert in
the dental profession, and Anyox is
fortunate in procuring such a
worthy successor.
Dr. Macdonald is a graduate of
Dalhousie University of Halifax,
N. S. graduating with highest
honors. He is a member of the
College of Dental Surgeons of
British Columbia, and a member of
the Dominion Dental Counoil of
Canada. He has had several years
practical experience, and has full
knowledge of his profession.

Increase in Alice Arm
Operating Mining
According to present indications
the present year will mark a new
epoch in the history of Alice Arm.
It will be the commencement of an
earnest   endeavor to develop   our
latent mineral resources, and   from
the results attained this year there
will be no turning back.    Alice Arm
is better known on   the outside at
the present time than   at any time
since it came into existence.     Our
wonderful resources are known, and
a splendid   future is predicted for
the camp.    From now on,  the  importance of the camp will grow each
year.    If development work is continued,   no   power can retard   its
growth.    The district has an abundance of the  most needed world's
metals, and these will be extracted.
More properties will  be developed
this year than has been the case  for
a decade.    The   properties will be
developed on   a bigger scale than
heretofore, and the first concentrating mill  will be operating in  the
district before the year ends.
Some big mining deals, involving
large sums, are already being planned, which, if successful necessitates the expenditure of vast sums
of money.
For the past three years the mining industry of Alice Arm has shown
an improvement each year, and each
year the improvement is much

A fund of information was contained in an article dealing with
the mining industry of Alice Arm,
which appeared in a recent Sunday

The following paragraph, relating to the over-production of
copper, which materially effects
everyone in the district, are extracts
from the editorial columns of the
Engineering and Mining Journal;
"From the mixture of official
statements and "reports—more or
less substantiated—that are circulating currently in New York regarding the curtailment of copper
production, a reasonable conclusion
may be drawn that in the aggregate the rate of production in
March will be somewhat lower
than it has been in recent months.
Mine production in November was
at the highest rate in history. The
same may be said of refined production in January. Stocks have
increased steadily during the last
five months for  which fact that
New Sources of Lead
Supply Found
Lead still commands world-wide
attention, though prices are down,
and new sources of supply have
appeared.    Anaconda isdeveloping
an   immense    deposit   at   Tin tic,
Utah;   and the Livingstone Mine
in Idaho has developed large reserves.   The Electrolytio Zinc Co.
is developing a new mine in Tasmania   to   replace  Broken    Hill.
United States was unable to fill its
own demands for   the metal   and
had to import 60,000 tons last year
Mexico increased production from
196,000 tons in 1925 to   227,000
tons for last year.     The Morning;
Mine is working to 3,050 ft. and
Bunker Hill and Sullivan to 2,000
ft. below the Kellogg Adit.    Cerro
de Pasco is shipping from  Peru
1,000 tons of concentrates a month
to Selby Smelter,   the   values   in
whioh amount to 200 oz. silver per
ton and 45 per cent lead.    Broken
Hill production for last year was
the largest in ten   years.     Burma
Corporation has, in the Chinaman
ore body on the 8th. level,  an ore
shoot 62J ft. wide, averaging 23.8
oz. silver per ton, 34.4% lead,  and
16.4% zinc.   In Great Britain, old
lead mines are  being reopened  in
some new production, notably from Derbyshire and a silver-lead mine

the Andes property in
America, must inevitably be added
to the supply, have given the customer of copper a distinct advantage in the market. Producers
all knew that curtailment would be
a splendid thing, particularly if
someone else would do the curtailing. When, in February, the
price slumped to twelve and-a-half
cents it is likely that some producers awoke to the realization that
they had better not continue to
wait foi the other fellow to reduce
his rate of production.
"Possibly the hesitancy of responsible officials of most of the companies to make a frank declaration
regarding the current rate of production is caused by the feeling
that some color might be given to
the notion that curtailment had
been instituted by mutual agreement. However, enough information is at hand from reliable
sources to warrant the prediction
that, barring increases from unfor-
seen quarters, world production in
March will be at a rate about 10
per cent below that of January."

Coking   Industry  Will
Be Subsidized
A government measure by
means of which substantial aid
will be afforded the industry of
ooking Canadian coal is in course
of preparation, and formal notice
may be expeoted immediately.
After consideration, the cabinet
has deoided on a policy of subsidizing plants to be established in different parts of the country or
already in operation.
It is planned to distinguish
between private-owned coking
plants and those which are owned
and operated by municipalities. In
the case ofthe former, subsidy will
be 4 per cent, on the invested capital, while in the case of municipalities, it will be 5 per cent. A
limit, however, is to be placed on
the capital in respect of which the
subsidy will hepaid, but where the
line will be drawn is not yet decided.
The assistance will be available
only for such plants as use Canadian coal, and intimation received
suggests that some very large
concerns, municipal or others, will
go into the business with expenditures as high as $66,000,000.
Automobiles Absorb a
Large Tonnge Copper
Outside of the electrical industry
automotive manufacturers represent one of the largest consumers
of copper in its native form, as well
as in brass, bronze and other alloys.
Copper consumption in automobile manufacture is largely account
ed for by such items as starting,
lighting and ignition systems, radiator cores and shell: bushings and
bearings, gas and oil piping, headlights, hup caps, hardware and
metal trim.
Copper consumption in the automobile industry has increased very
rapidly since 1921. Since that
time better construction and design
with added refinement of mechanism and style has contributed
largely to ever-mounting car sales
and car registration. All this has
been reflected in the amount of
copper consumed by the automobile industry.
In 1925 the automobile industry
(consumed 245,000,000 pounds of
i oopper, while in 1921 only 70,000,-
000 pounds were used.

The sum of $2,880 in the form of
$10 gold pieoes was given to the
employees of the Homestake Mining Co., Lead, S. D., recently as
awards for the men who have lost
