Dominion Day Sports at
Anyox Huge Success
Held under Auspices Anyox
Community League
Brilliant sunshine; a record
attendance; full sports programme;
plenty of cooling drinks, tho whole
clays' entertainment terminating
with a big dance marked this year's
celebration of Dominion Day in
Anyox.
Tho day's programme commenced
with the marathon races at 10 a.m.
I and concluded   with   tho   closing
| of the dance at 2 a.m. tho following
morning a truly busy day for those
who participated in all tlie events.
Arrangements were in  tlie capable   hands  of   the    Community
League,   who   carried   tho    pro-
| gramme through without a hitch.
The Held sports, baseball and
football games drew big crowds.
Everything went off with a bang
every event being a ringer, even
old King Sol entered into the spirit
of the day, and did  his utmost to
make  the bleachers as   warm   as
possible and many of the spectators
j who occupied them, turned longing
eyes at their neighbors who had
[ taken advantage   of   the    shady
places,        with almost a
I spirit of envy.    But ample provis-
lion had been made by the Granby
Co. and the Community League in
having on hand an   abundance   of
ice cream and cold drinks for any
• who cared to  avail  themselves  of
the opportunity.   This was supplied
free of charge.    The  kiddies had a
I glorious time, as they usually do at
I events of this kind, being supplied
with squakers and flags.
A baseball team from Ketchikan
arrived in time for the celebration.
A number of supporters accompanied them, and  it is safe to say that
[ they fully enjoyed their visit. Both
ball games played between Ketchi-
I kan and Anyox were all that could
Ibe desired,  Anyox   winning   the
I morning  game,   and    Ketchikan
IbeiiiR the victors of   the  evening
■encounter.
It is to be regretted that the
lAnyox team were not in a position
lto pay a return visit to Ketchikan
|for July 4th celebration as in for-
ner years. No boat could be hired
jto take the Anyox team to Ketchikan, enquiries were make by wire
to the various boathouses at Prince
■Rupert, but no launches were
livailable.
Those who helped with the
hports and served iced drinks and
bream, cakes, peanuts, flags, squak-
Irs and horns, were: Harry Arm-
jtrong, H. 11. Patrick, C McLachlan, A. Beaton. E. G. Brown and R.
Ingram. Secretary of the League
W. M. Kelley was the busiest man
In town, and the great success of
Ihe celebration is due in a large
Jegree to his excellent organizing
Jbilities. Art Nickerson, chairman
If the entertainment committee
llso fulfilled his duties in a very
Ireditable manner.
At the conclusion of the after-
loon sports a luncheon was
Irovided the Ketchikan visitors in
lie Elks' Dugout. They were also
luests at the evening dance held in
lie Gymnasium, which wound up
lie day's rejoicing.
J The dance was well attended,
Ihe Syncopated Six orohestra, kept
['eryone's feet itching with their
pcellent music, and the Home
faltz witnessed a tired but cheer-
bl bunch of celebrating patriots
spurting for home, some of which
lore nearby, while others less for-
Jnate journeyed to Alice Arm or
letchikan.

Alice Arm Will Have
Greater Publicity
A special meeting of the Alice
Arm branch of the B. C. Chamber
of Mines was held in tlie Coliseum on Monday evening for the
purpose of hearing tho report of
tho -publicity committee. Vice-
President T. W. Falconer presided.
Tho minutes of tho preceding
meeting were read by Secretary
A. J). York, and were adopted.
The secretary then stated that
the twenty prospectors' samples
from the Department of Mines at
Ottawa had arrived, and an examination of them had shown that
they will be extremely useful for
the purpose of comparing samples.
These samples had been supplied
free.
Some discussion regarding a
suitable place for them was indulged in, and it was finally deoided
to leave them with the secretary
until suitable quarters could be
found.
H. Fowler, chairman of the publicity committee, gave a brief
address regarding the findings of
the committee, and stated that
enough money had been promised
to print 750 booklets and it was
hoped to increase this number to
1000.
Mr. R. Armour, secretary of the
Publicity Committee then read his
report. At the conclusion of the
reading of the report it was decided
to eliminate all display advertising
in the booklet, as it was thought
that as much space as possible
should be devoted to reading matter relative to the mining industry.
The inclusion of a map of the
whole district was the next question
and it was decided to insert- as
large a map as possible if same
could be done, at a reasonable-
expense.
The committee were authorized
by the meeting to publish at least
750 booklets, and to increase this
number to 1000 if necessary funds
can be secured. The book to be
4j- by 8 inches, 32 pages, six of
which will be illustrations. Same
to be issued as soon as possible.
The following extracts were taken
from Mr. Armour's report.
Three committee meetings were
held on the 28th. 29th. and 30th. of
June.
It was decided to canvass the busies* people of the town in order to
obtain finances. •
The district to be covered in thebook
to consist of a radius of 15 or 20 miles
of the town of Alice Arm.
The most reliable information to be
secured regarding mining properties,
and to base all reports on the report
of the District Mining Engineer, together with such other reliable information as could be obtained.
The properties in active operation
to receive greatest space.
Tho bulk of inactive properties to be
listed in column form, giving name of
property owner, names of minerals,
location etc.
As much space as possi ble to be gi ven
to the mining industry.
Approximate cost of 500 books,
$175.00; 750 hooks $210.00, and 1.000
books $250.00. This price includes
map of district.
That the committee set the sum of
$BO0.OO for their objective to take care
of incidental expenses.
inion, with its towering mountains
its sun-kissed valleys, and fertile
golden plains, Dominion Day was
not celebrated more heartily than
in the town of Anyox. July 1st is
the birthday of this broad and
blessed Dominion in which we are
proud to live and call our home,
and by celebrating our birthday we
show our joy at being so fortunate
to dwell in suoh a laud of peace,
plenty, and prosperity.

Anyox Couple
The United Church at Anyox

at 8.30, when a very attractive
wedding was solemnized between
Miss Doris Lawn and Mr. Geo.
Leslie. Both are well known and
popular in Anyox circles.
The bride is the eldest daughter
of Mrs. W. Lawn of Barrow-in
Kurness, England, and the groom
is the eldest son of Mrs. C. Leslie
of Anyox. The young couple have
hosts of friends in'the locality, so

amount of interest and brought
together many well wishers for
their future happiness. The Rev.

service,
The bridal party made a striking
and beautiful picture. The bride,
who was given away by her brother
Gordon, looked lovely attired in an
ensemble suit of powder blue, with
a grey picture hat, and her bouquet
was composed of Ophelia roses,
white heather and carnations. She
was attended by her sister Miss
Annie Lawn, who looked charming
in a spun silk dress of Alice bine,
with silver grey hat.
Mr. Ronald Moore supported the
groom. The groom's mother was
attired in a gown of pretty shade
of navy blue crepe de chine, with
hat to match.
After the ceremony a wedding
breakfast was served at the bride's
home, where about 25 guests spent
a happy time. The usual toasts
were honoured, those of the bride
and bridegroom being very enthusiastically received.
The happy couple left on the S.
S. Cardena for the south, from
there they will visit the Eastern
States; also to the bridegroom's
home in Cleveland Ohio.

gold wristlet watch. The bride's
gift to the groom, was a set of
handsome gold cuff links. Mr.
Gordon Lawn and Mr. Ronald

Dr. Slocuiu who is examining the
Dolly Varden and Wolf mines. Mr.

properties last summer.
A. F. Smith, who has spent the past
six months in Vancouver and vicinity

Prince Bupert.
A delightful tea was given at
Alice Arm Hotel by Mrs. G. W.
Bruggy and Mrs W. M. Cummings
in honor of Mrs. Allen Falconer,
before her recent departure for
Vancouver. All the ladies of the
town (except three) were present,
so it was a goodly gathering. Mr.
Andrews took photographs in the
grounds of the hotel, after which
everyone adjourned to the dining
room, exclamations of delight were
heard; for the table was decorated
with lovely crimson roses from end
to end, these with the pretty china
and good things to eat, made everyone happy, and Mrs Falooner, will
carry the memory of that afternoon
for a long time to come.
Benzol Boys Slip Over
Win on Mill Men
The Brewery League got under way
to a good start on Wednesday evening
when the Coke Plant nine took the
Concentrator into camp to the time of
13 to 10. It was a torrid contest from
start to finish, dazzling plays were
pulled on both sides amid the cheers
of the huge crowd present. Manager
Harmon's aggregation of sincillating
stars started off with a rush and had
piled up a lead of nine runs before the
opposition knew what it. was all about.
In the fifth and sixth, however, Montgomery, who was on the slab for .the
winners, weakened and eight runs
trickled across the rubber. But the
tar babies were not to be denied, they
added two in the fifth and one in the
sixth which put the game on ice. Gawn
Moffat started on the mound for the
losers but was wild and ineffective and
was yanked i n favor o [ Stew McLachlan who got by nicely the few innings
he worked. Jack Hill, at first base for
the Coke Plant, turned in several nice
plays as well as being the big man
with the stick when he poled out one
for the circuit in the fourth frame.
Bradshaw was the star for the Concentrator nine, in the sixth inning he
got on and managed to steal everything but the umpire's gold teeth.
Willard Bruce was the umpire.

Mr. and Mrs. C. Gray Leave
Mr. and Mrs. Charles Gray and
family left Anyox ou Friday, for
Vancouver, where tliey intend to
make their future home. Charlie
had been in the employ of the
Granby Co. since 1908, working at
Grand Forks from 1908 to 1914,
when became to Anyox. He worked
in the Smelting Department during the time the furnaces were
first blown in, and in 1917 was
appointed dock foreman, which
position he held until 1921. From
1921 until recently he fulfilled tbe
duties as manager of the Elks' Club.
Charlie will be greatly missed in
fraternal circles and in the community. A large number of his
friends were down at the boat to
bid Mr. and Mrs. Gray good-bye
and the best of success for their
future welfare.
Work Commenced on Eagle
Development work commenced this
week on the Eagle property near the
LaRose mine. The property was
recently examined by W. S. 'Bacon,
mining engineer of Vancouver.
Present work will consist of surface
operations, and future plans will be
made when this work has been completed.
The Eagle was recently bonded to
Mr. McMorris of Vancouver.
Among the arrivals yesterday at
the Alice Arm Hotel from Anyox,
were: Mr. and Mrs. Patton. Mr.
and Mrs. H. Talbot, Mrs. W. A.
Mengel, Dick Patton, Dick Talbot

week or so enjoying the scenic
sights of the district.
Ketchikan and Anyox
Divide Honors
E. Groves, of the Anyox branch
Canadian Bank of Commerce
arrived yesterday at the Alice Arm
Hotel, where he will spend a week's
vacation.
With old Sol beating down at
his best, making it the hottest day
this year, but ideal baseball weather, Ketchikan and Anyox split the
double bill on Dominion Day. The
local boys took the morning contest
by a 9 to 7 count before a fair sized
crowd. Both teams seemed to have
their batting eyes and in consequence the match proved to be quite
a slug fest. Orr started on the
mound for Anyox but was forced
to retire in the sixth, in favor of
Smith, when the visitors bunched
hits to tie up the score. Johns,
who started for the Alaskans was
chased in the fourth frame giving
way to Cosgroves. who hurled fine
ball until the seventh and eighth
when the locals got to him for a
brace of markers in each canto.
Hill, lirst saeker for the visitors
was the leading sticker with four
bingles out of five trips to the plate
he also supplied the fielding feature
when he speared Smith's liner,
which was tagged for the Mine
Apartments. Umpires were Oleson
and Erbe.
The evening contest went to the
visitors by the close score of 3 to 1.
The game was not as interesting to
watch as the previous one but was
productive of some very good baseball. Smith took up the burden
on the mound for Anyox, holding
the opposition seorless up to the
fourth frame when he weakened
and three runs trickled across. The
lone tally for Anyox came in the
first when Downs walked, stole
second and came home when Rud-
derham's single eluded the centre
fielder. Van Marter chucked good
ball for the winners, but was
forced to retire in the sixth due to
a sore arm. Holtz finishing the
game with no trouble at all.

The football contest took place
in the afternoon, aud after struggling for seventy minutes under the
boiling sun, the match was declared
a draw, each side scoring one each.
Powell scored the Single Men's
coal in the first half with a sizzling
shot which gave the goalie no
chance. Bob Ellison notched the
counter for the Benedicts in the
second half on a nice pass from
Bill Robertson. As there was a
prize at stake it was decided to
settle tlie matter by tossing a coin,
which was won by the single men.

Mr. E. Morning, who was employed as foreman painterat Anyox

H. MOSS, Editor and Publisher.
The liberal government, under
the leadership of Mackenzie King
has fallen, and an election in September has been decided upon.
The sore spots of the last election
have just about healed up, and these
will now be torn open. The old
acrimonous election atmosphere will
again prevail, until the question of
which party shall govern the country
has been decided upon. The
people will be arrayed against each
other in two hostile camps, which
is not good for the country at large
or for a small community. An
election every four years is quite
often enough, both from a monetary standpoint, and the general
welfare of the country.
The recent debacle at Ottawa
plainly shows that a third party in
parliament is undesirable. It has
proven a dismal failure in every
country where a group of egoists
have elected members to Parliament
and Canada has learned her lesson
in the bitter school of experience.
A small group of Progressives have
governed Canada quite long enough.
They do not possess any ulterior
motives, and they keep the country
in a political turmoil. During the
last election their numbers were
greatly reduced, and their complete
elimination from the Federal field
in the coming election is to be
hoped for.
Last Shipment of Ore from
Surf Inlet Mine
The Belmont-Surf Inlet mine at
Surf Inlet, on Prinoess Royal Island,
has now ceased operations, the last
shipment of ore having been made
last week on the Chilcoot. Another group of residents moving out
were on board tlie Catala recently
on their way to Vancouver and, in
about three weeks, there will be
hardly anyone left at the mining
camp which has been a hive of
steady industry for the past ten
years. Some of the equipment will
he moved out but it is expected a
good deal of it will have to be
abandoned.

Alice Arm Receives
Increased Publicity
Slowly, but surely Alice Arm is coming to its own. Increased interest in
the camp is being taken and mining
men throughout the northwest are
anxious to obtain data regarding our
resources. It is gratifying to note
that mining journals are commencing
to give the camp increased publicity
in order to satisfy the wants of their
readers.
Recent issues of tho Western Canada
Mining News, published in Vancouver,
have given considerable space to local
operations. It is a small weekly, but
full of interesting mining news, and
its publishers arc live wires.
The Alaska Weekly, published in
Seattle, has always been a consistent
booster for the camp, and in their last
issue ran a front page article with a
Si-ill double column heading in respect
to the examination of the Dolly Varden, and also putting in a good word
for the cam]) in general.
Resources, a monthly magazine,
published in Prince Rupert, is also
interested in the development of the
camp, and is anxious for authentic news at all times. They have,
since commencing publication, printed
several articles relative to the mining
industry of the camp, and hope to publish more.
Mining Truth, Spokane, Washington and Mining and Industrial Record
of Vancouver also carry items of Alice
Arm mining activities, but to a lesser
extent than the three first mentioned.,
4 large portion of the news carried
in the above-mentioned journals, is
obtained from the columns of the
Herald, which shows that the local
paper is held in high esteem, and its
mining news can be regarded as authentic.
We have received numerous requests
from Mining journals for written copy
regarding local developments. Some
we have been able to comply with, but
pressure of business does not allow us
time to fully cover this important
work.
It is the duty of the people of Alice
Arm to support a mining journal favorable to our interests when subscribing to one. We have on hand a con
siderable number of mining magazines
and newspapers, and anyone is welcome to pursue them.
Marriage is a business failure when
a man puts his property in his wife's
name.

in the Dominion, or any Colony in the British Empire.
Mineral locations are granted to discoverers for nominal fees.
Absolute Titles are obtained by developing such properties, security of which is guaranteed by
Crown Grants.
Practically all British Columbia Mineral Properties upon which development work has been dono
are described in some one of the Annual Reports of the Minister of Mines. Those considering
mining investments should refer to such reports. They are available without charge on application
to the Department of Mines, Viotoria, B. C. Reports covering each of the six mineral Survey
Districts are published separately, and are available on application. Reports of the Geological
Survey of Canada, Winch Building, Vancouver, are recommended as valuable sources of information.
