,JMr. J. P. Suttie, looating engineer for roads and trails for the
Provincial Government, arrived in
town on Thursday, for the purpose
of surveying a trail route, from

Mr, Suttie stated that he would
have surveyed the trail some time
ago, but owing to sickness he was
unable to do so. Acoording to
present plans he intends to make
a survey of the Lime Creek route

from tidewater to the summit. ' A
survey will then be made of the

route for the trail on a wagon road
grade, so that it can be converted
into a wagon road when conditions
warrant, at a minimum expense.

first prize; he arrived in town a
few days ago, bringing two fine
goats, a small bear, and a fine

devoted to various charities.
It was deoided to hold a masquerade ball in the Recreation

with her sister.

and Pack Horses.
\
Mrs. O. M. Watson and Mrs. P.
Davis, of Anyox, spent a few day's
holiday at Silver City during the
week;
The apartment house of Mrs. H.
Nucich is taking on a new coat of
paint, which greatly enhances the
appearance of this imposing building.
Mr. O. Gray arrived home on
Monday, from a business trip to
Seattle.
A special meeting of the Citizens'
Association will be held in the
Anglican Churoh, this evening, at
8 p.m.- This meeting is of the
utmost importance.
H. Wallace, of Anyox, arrived
on Thursday, and left the following day for the Esperanza mine,
where he will fill the position of
steel, sharpener.
J. P. Suttie, government locating
engineer, arrived on Thursday, to
survey a trail route between here
and the Naas Valley.
Now that it is definitely settled
that logging operations will .be
carried on here next year, even the
most long-faced pessimists in camp
admit that conditions will probably
be better, and you can gamble they
will be better than even the most
optimistic dares to imagine. While
no word has yet been received regarding activities on the Dolly
Varden and Wolf properties, there
is not the slighest doubt but that
work will be]again commenced next
year. Mr. Wingfield and his
associates, when they get control,
do not intend to, let the whole
plant, including, the railway go to
ruin before starting work. It is to
their interest to start operations as
soon as possible , in order to realize
on their investment, and it is a
safe bet that work will be in full
blast on the above-named properties early in the new year, if not
before, and as soon as transportation is assured for the Kitsault
Valley, a dozen companies will be
operating there in as many weeks.
The camp is only yet in its infancy.
It never yet had a chanoe, but was
throttled at birth, but the next
few years will probably tell
another story. ALICE   ARM   AND   ANYOX   HERALD,   Alice Arm,   Saturday, October 14, 1922

Conditions Not so Bad.
We sometimes curse the town
we live in, and wish we were in
some other town or big city.
We fondly imagine that if only we
could get somewhere else—the
farther, the better—how much
better off we would be. The
Anyox folk sometimes get sore at
gas when it hangs low over the
town, and the people of Alice
Arm softly curse the Taylor Co.
whenever that name is mentioned;
but conditions could be worse on
Observatory Inlet. We have
been practically immune from the
hard times that have swept the
world. We have not known
what hunger and want is, and now
that conditions are everywhere
improving, even better times are in
store for the people of both towns.
The people of Anyox have secured 50 cents per day increase in
wages, and can now face the
coming winter with a cheerful
smile. The residents of Alice
Arm are now assured of considerable activity in the camp next summer, and everyone is prepared to
hold on throughout the winter, and
is looking to the future with a thrill
of happiness. We have climbed
the hill of hard times, and the
going should now be comparatively
easy.
Kitsault River Bridge
Now that it is definitely settled
that logging operations are to be
commenced on a large scale next
summer, on the east side of the
Kitsault River, a bridge across
that stream becomes a live issue
with the people of Alice Arm.
Three temporary means of communication have been built by the
government during the past few
years, at considerable expense, and
all have been swept down the
river. The money so far spent,
has been an absolute waste, and it
is high time the government lent a
sympathetic ear to this pressing
need, and built a bridge that will
at least, withstand an ordinary
freshet. As soon as logging operations are commenced, a bridge
will be an absolute necessity.
The best time to build the bridge
is in the winter, when the water is
low in the river, and the greatest
possible pressure should be brought
to bear upon the government that
the bridge be built this winter, so
that it will be ready for use next
summer.
Herald Office Moved
Two weeks ago the printing
plant of the Herald was moved,
and it is now located in comfortable quarters on the picturesque
Valley Road, about one block
north of the Anglican Church.
The job printing department of th<
Herald is rapidly being brought up-
to-date, and we are now turning
out high grade printing equal to
any produced on the coast.
Every job printed by us is done in
first-class style, and prices charged
for work will compare favorably
with similar work done elsewhere.
Quick Service and high class work
is our motto.
Shares are being issued by a newly
formed company, named the Northern
Mining Properties Ltd., to creditors
of the defunct Taylor Mining Co, Ltd.,
of Vancouver, which formerly operated the Dolly Varden Mine.
The Northern Mining Properties
Ltd. is a new incorporation under the
Companies Act of British Columbia,
The stock certificates are signed by A.
C. DesBrisay, and John Anderson,
formerly secretary for the Taylor
Engineering Co. Ltd., and the Taylor
Mining Co,, Ltd.
It is understood that the new company has been formed by Mr. Geo.
Wingfield, of Reno, Nevada, who was
given an order nisi to the property by
the Courts, last June, and the principal shareholders of the Taylor Mining
Co. Ltd. No word has yet been received by the company's representatives at Alice Arm as to when
operations will be commenced.
Engineer Mine at Atlin
is under Option
The famous Engineer Mine, Atlin,
which has been in and out of the
Courts almost continuously since 1917,
is under option to Timmins brothers,
the well known Ontario mine operators. Option is conditional to the
privy council upholding the decision of
the British Columbia supreme court
which vested the title to the mine
with the heirs of the late Captain
Alexander. The property is supposed
to be one of the richest gold mines in
British Columbia. The case comes up
for hearing before the privy council
sometime next month.
Premier Mining Co. Pays
Another Big Dividend
The Premier Gold Mining Company,
of Stewart have recently made another
dividend distribution, amounting to
$750,000 for the third quarter of the
year. Distribution was made on September 20. This brings the Premier
dividends to date up to $2,100,000, all
of which has been paid inside of a
year.
When Noah Won Out
You remember Noah had to work a
long time on that ark. It was up-hill
business, too, at least, building a boat
way out on dry land, while the local
anvil-and-hammer club sat around
spitting tobacco juice upon his lumber,
whittling up his pine boards with their
jack knives, and telling him what a
fool he was for expecting a big rain in
a country that was too dry to grow
alfalfa. But he kept at it. Finally
the flood came and every mother's son
of the croakers was drowned. This is
the only instance we know, in either
sacred or profane history, where a
bunch of knockers got exactly what
was coming to them,"—Exchange.
In 1857'gold was discovered in the
Fraser River and the rush set in which
resulted in the discovery of the Cariboo goldfields in 1860.
Silver exports to China and India
from the United States and England,
for the first eight months of this year,
amounted to more than $61,000,000 in
value. This is at the rate of about
$9,000,000 in excess of the same monthly averages for last year.
The Premier Mining Company has
completed ten cottages for its married
employees, and is now constructing a
large oil tank on the hillside.
Platinum is now quoted at $105 per
ounce.

League Meeting
Continued from page 1.
Interested are asked to be present.
It would not be good policy ou the
part of the League to go any
further in the matter until the
situation has been thoroughly oan-
rassed.
Mr. Noel, Chairman of the Rec-
Iseation Hall Hoiisn Committee
reported progress in connection
■with a billiard tournament now
being arranged lor. He stated
that there were quite a list of
entries, a Committee to handle
this affair was being organized, and
it was hoped to have play started
in the near future.
Mr. Rowley stated that he had
been approached by a member of
the Elk's Concert Committee, Ivho
.wished to repeat their vaudeville
ishow on one of the following
nights: October 27th, November
1st. or 3rd. Some of the Council
thought that any of these dates
might interfere with the dance of
the 80th, under the auspices of the
I,Ladies Auxiliary to the Hospital
Board.   The matter was tabled.
Because of the initial dance of
the newly formed Mine Club, the
meeting adjourned on a motion of
Mr. Noel, which was seconded by
Mr. Sherman.

Frank R. Roundy's Will
is Upheld by Appeal Judges
Following a bitter contest in
both the Supreme Court and the
Court of Appeal, the will of Frank
R. Roundy,, prospector, and' well
known in Alioe Arm and the north
coast, has been upheld and ordered
probated.
The Appellate Court revised the
decision of the trial judge, who set
aside the will on the ground that
Roundy was mentally incompetent
and had been the victim of undue
influence.
Roundy's will directed payment
of $35,000 to a sister, Mrs. Rose
Glynn, of Massachusetts, and
$10,000 to his friend, Frank
Pulice, contractor of Victoria.,
The validity of the will was
questioned when the executor of
the Standard Trust Company,
applied to the Supreme Court for
probate.    ,
The bequest to Pulice was designated by Roundy's relatives as
an indication of his insanity. Led
by Mrs. Glynn, the relatives asked
the court to'declare an intestacy.
The will was made in January;
1919, two months after Roundy
had been taken to tho Jubilee
Hospital for a paralytic stroke.
He subsequently resided with his
friend, Pulice, until Mrs. Glynn
took him to Massachusetts where
he died two years later, following
severe burns sustained in an
accident.
The late Frank Roundy was the
first/prospector to land at the head
of Alice Arm, and he was the
original staker of the Esperanza
Mine. He was a veteran of the
American Civil War.

Elk's Vaudeville Show
Continued from page 1.
Davis: Billy, her brother (a dope)
Fred Leggett; Officer O'Hara (a
plain clothes man,) H. Chapman;
Jake Fuller (a reformed crook,) Cy.
Greenwell. This is a story of the
underworld, describing how difficult it is to go straight after having
been once convicted. Mrs. Davis,
as Minnie Fuller, took a difficult
part, but carried it through exceeding well. The play was very
realastic and it certainly was a
close shave, when the pockets of
plain clothes man gave evidence
that the Fuller family were innocent. Messrs. Leggett, Chapman
and Greenwell were splendid in
their different roles.
I. "Behind the scenes" A musical farce in one act. Cast; Solly
(the property man) Harry Braith-
waite; Manager, Pete Draudson;
Madam Ha Ha (Grand opera in a
nutshell) Mrs. 0. M. Watson; Nelly
(The Rickshaw Sister) Miss M.
McDonald; Maggie (Comedian and
Dancer) Miss F. Eld; Voico (the
Italian Nightingale) Max Morrow;
Hammersteui (Orchestra Conductor) Cy Greenwell. This was the
star turn of the bill, and all who
took part in it are deserving of
praise. H. Braithwaite, who had
been seen earlier in the evening as
Dr. Benzol, showed that he is a
very versatile artist, in the part of
stage manager and general all-
round factotetn of the small town
Opery House. The scene is a
Monday afternoon rehearsal,' and is
a scream from start to finish
Braithwaite was the central figure
of the act, bringing down the
house with his antics. Mrs. 0. M.
AVatson, as the Prima Dohy, who
must have the spot-light, opened
with "l dreamt I dwelt in marble
halls," in the voice of a trained
artist, but as the manager wanted
jazz, the "primadony" was instantly transferred to the jazz singer,
who delivered the goods to the
great       delight       of       every
one. The "Gin Ricky Sisters,"
two young hard-boiled chickens,
were cleverly portrayed by Miss
Florrie Eld and Miss Margaret
MacDonald.
All handled their respective parts
in a very satisfactory manner, and
we hope to see the show again at
an early date. "A good show,"
was the popular verdict of all those
who were fortunate to see it.
1 and 1 are 2.
