Elks Win from Mine in Opening
Baseball Game
The opening game of baseball
was staged Friday evening, the 16,
at the ball grounds. The Mine,
last year's champions, and the
Elks were the opposing teams.
The latter team winning by the
score of 4 to 3. They started out
with a battery composed of Heffner
and Williscroft. Heffner however
proved a little wild and walked
Dillon who was batting for the
Mine. The regular batteries for
the teams were; Elks, Greenwell,
Hall and Down, for the Mine, C.
Ferguson and Anderson. They
led right up to the linal stanza by
the score of 4 to 1 But the Mine
managed to push over two counters
iu the seventh, all but tieing the
score. Greenwell held the opposition down to four hits, while
Ferguson was touched for seven
safties.
Clark, a new player on the
mine roster, started the attack in
the seventh, which drove Greenwell to the showers. A long drive
to centre, which was good for two
bases in any league, was stretched
to a home run in this case, after
the ball had been thrown and
booted around the field.
The teams were1 Mine, Anderson o; C, Ferguson p., Kirk 1st b.,
O'Brien 2nd b., Brown s. s., Elliatt

Smelter Defeats Mine 9-3
The Mine again tasted defeat,
this time at the hands of the
Smelter aggregation of ball tosser.s.
Five runs ia the first inning was
two big a handicap for the Mine
to overcome. The final score was
Smelter 9, Mine 3. The batteries
were, for the Smelter: B. Fitz
patriek and Mo Keown. Mine:
C. Ferguson and Anderson. The
Smelter got to Ferguson for nine
safe hits, two of them doubles.
The Mine only succeeded in getting
four safe blows off Fitzpatrick's
delivery.
Bob Stewart, who is with the
Smelter this year, was the big
man with the bat, getting two
hits and a walk out of four trips
to the plate. The Smelter team,
also the Mine squad are
practically made up of entirely
new players this year, and as the
season progresses, some good ball
should be forthcoming.
W. Olson was the Umpire,
C. Greenwell on bases.
Smelter Win from Beach in
First Football Game
The Smelter defeated the Beaoh
6-3 in a close game,of Football, as
the score indioates. In the first
ten minutes the Beach had the
best of the play, btt they were
rushed off their feet in the second
half. A feature of the game was
the fine playing of Jimmie
Twaddle at outside right. The
Mine have lost a valuable player
in jimmie as he seems to be getting
back into his old form. Jack
also played a stellar game for the
Smelter, being responsible for
most of their goals. Evans handled the game to the satisfaction of
both players and spectators.

Anyox Conservatives
Hold Organization
Meeting
A large and enthusiastic meet-
iug of Anyox conservatives was
held in the Band Boom on Monday
evening May 19. It was decided
to submit two names to the Conservative Convention which will be
held in Anyox on May 29. The
suggested nominees are E. J. Conway, Mining Engineer, well known
throughout the Biding, and Dr.
D. II. Learoyd who is very popular
in Anyox. Either of these men
would be a very able representative and would carry a very
heavy vote at the Polls. The
following officers were elected:
Pres. Mr. James Haslett; Vice-
Pres. Mr. George Williscroft;
Sec.-Treas. Mr. Bert Shelton. A
large Executive was chosen and
organized for campaigning
purposes, consisting of Messrs. A.
W. Gigot. Chas. Wing, J. E. C.
Stroud, B. M. Buck.,H. A. Berry.
Dr. Harper, E.-J. Conway, Dr. D.
R. Learoyd, A. Stazicker, G. E.
Townshend, Joe Sleigh, John
Parker, F. C. Graham, James
Wilson, W. J. Kyle, J. G. Ellis,
W. Bater, Colin Campbell, J. W.
Peacock, J. Tolhurst, Edgar Ashton, William McLean and M.
Cranley. Enthusiasm ran high at
the meeting and plans were made
to put over the winning candidate
followirij? tin? decision of the Convention on May 29. A meeting is
called for Monday evening May 26
to choose Delegates to the Convention on the following Thursday.
Alice Arm Mining Has
Bright Future
Although the prospects for the
operation of the Dolly Varden
mine are not particularly bright for
this year, due to entanglements of
the owners, it is evident that
several properties will be operated
this year.
The Homestake Mining Co.
will commence development work
on their property as soon as the
show is off, aud transportation
available.
The Keystone Mining Co. will
also commence operations on the
Sunset property, on Roundy
Creek, as soon as supplies can be
taken in.
Several mining engineers, representing powerful mining companies, are slated to visit the
district this year, and it is highly
probable that properties that
have been inactive for the past
few years, will be again developed.
Those connected with mining,
continually stress the fact that
plenty of capital is available for
investment in mining properties,
and with the high grade showings,
both on the surface and underground, coupled with the magnif-
icient record of the Dolly Varden
there is no reason why Alice Arm
properties should not be developed.
The dance given by the Anyox
Community League in the gymnasium Saturday night will be the
wind-up of Anyox Empire Day
Celebration.
Although a short dance, 9 to 12,
the programme as arranged
promises to be of unusual interest.
The best local dance music obtainable is being provided and refreshments will be up to the usual
standard,  .

Platinum Discovered at
Alice Arm
Rex Property near Dolly Varden
Gives New Ore to District
Platinum, the most valuable
mineral in the world, has been
added to the long list of minerals
found in the Alice Arm district.
The discovery that platinum exists
in the locality was made by Mr.
Arohie McPhail, who sent samples
of ore south for assaying. The
samples were taken from the Rex
property, and the values obtained
were: platinum, $4.80, and gold
$10.80' per ton. Previous assays
for gold have given $17.00 per ton.
The ore also carries 97.1 silica.
This is, as far as is known, the
only ore sample in *■ the district to
be assayed for platinum, and the
results obtained will undoubtedly
encourage prospectors to have
similar assays taken.
The Rex property joins the
David Copperfield on the south,
which joins the Dolly Varden.
The ore vein from which the
samples were taken in about
eight feet wide. It is practically
touching the Dolly'Varden railway
tracks, thus ensuring easy transportation of supplies and ore shipments. With a 30 foot tunnel, a
depth of 75 feet can be obtained.
Not much development work
has been done on the property,
but it is the intention of Mr. McPhail to do considerable work
this year, which will consist chiefly
of surface stripping of the vein,
and open cuts.
Esperanza Mine Makes
.   Ore Shipment
Another shipment of ore from
the Esperanza mine was made
during the week, consisting of
about thirty tons. The ore was
all sacked, aud was hauled to the
wharf over the Dolly Varden railway tracks. It was shipped to
the Anyox smelter for treatment.
Work at the mine is being
steadily carried on with a force
of eight men. The ore vein is
very consistent and the outlook of
the property is encouraging.
All the ore now mined is being
taken from the tunnel directly
above the Baldy tunnel. A tunnel
is now being driven from the
Baldy workings, to strike the ore
vein now being mined, at a lower
depth, and when this has been
done increased shipments from
the mine will be made.
Larcom Island Sawmill
Operating
The Larcom Island saw. mill of
the Granby Co. is now in full
operation, and is cutting around
75,000 feet of lumber per day.
Sixty per cent of the lumber being
cut is spruce.
The mill is now engaged in
cutting stringers and ties for the
railway trestle of the Kitsault
flats, and when this material is
delivered and placed, logging
operations will commence.

Another election will shortly be
upon us, with the usual tornado of
words and promises, and on
election day we shall all have the
privilege of voting for the party
we think will be of most benefit to
the district in which we live. In
some past elections there has been
a large amount of mud slinging by
the different candidates, but this
form of electioneering is rapidly
being discarded. The people
now demand that political candidates state their aims and platforms at the meetings. They
demand a constructive policy on
the part of any aspirant to office.
They no longer attend political
meetings when they wish to
hear a vaudeville show. In th
forthcoming election, the candidate
who confines his remarks entirely
to politicial issues of the day is the
man who is going to win. Elections we must have, and as they
are a necessity let them be free
from mud slinging, personal attacks,
and petty jealousies.
perity for the north, for more
money would be available for
developing new properties. We
have come to look upon the
Granby Company's operations as
a permanent institution, and everyone hopes that the tide of prosperity will soon turn in their favor,
so that their position in the district
can be further consolidated by the
acquisition ot new properties.

Although the price of copper is
down to zero, and with no immediate prospect of rising, the Granby
Co. are not only keeping their big
plant at Anyox working to capacity, but are developing new
properties, whenever conditions
warrant. Work is still being
carried on at Maple Bay, on the
Outsider, and diamond drilling
will again be done on the Eagle
property. Development work
will also be done on the Bononza
property, and quartz will again be
mined at Quartz Point. In addition to this, a large amount of
improvement work will be done to
the plant at Anyox. Everyone
admires the dogged tenacity of the
Granby Co. in hanging on until
the copper market improves.
They are one of the oldest operating mining companies in British
Columbia, and prosperity to the
Granby Co. means added pros-

Body of Late Resident of
Alice Arm Found
The following news item appeared in a recent issue of the Vanoouver Daily Provinoe, and gives a
full description of the finding of
the body of Mr. Bud Carpenter.
Mr. Carpenter was one of the early
prospectors of Alice Arm. He
was well known by all old-timers.
He left this district to trap and
and prospect in the Lillooet
district, where he met his death.
"Discovery of a bleached skeleton,
the decayed remains of a pair of
snowshoes, a packsack and a pair
of rubber boots, lying in about
six feet of water iu Summit Lake,
solves a four-year mystery of what
became of Bud Carpenter, who
disappeared about March 23,1920,
in the vicinity of Birken.
"Carpenter was a trapper and
prospector, well known in the
Lillooet and Pemberton districts,
He was last seen on Maroh 23,
1920, passing Summit Lake.
When missing, Constable Hig-
ginbottorn, at Lillooet, was notified
and ou proceeding to Birken spent
five days dragging the lake and
searching the woods without
discovering any trace of the loBt
man.
"Last week Constable Higgin-
bottom received information that
a skeleton had been seen in
Summit Lake and on arrival there
was able to identify the remains
as those of Carpenter. Frank
Nath was able to recognize the
snowshoes and packsack as being
those of the missing man.
"An inquest, held at Lillooet on
Saturday afternoon before Coroner
Gibbs, resulted in the finding of a
verdict that deceased met his
death by drowning while taking
a short cut across Summit Lake.
His only known relative is MrtvC.
S. Keene, Denver, Colo. The
remains were interred at Lillooet
Saturday afternoon."
