A. C. L. Discusses Many
Business Matters
At Meeting
Will Improve Ball Park Walk
At the meeting of the Beach
Council of the Anyox Community
League held on June 13th. a large
amount of business was transacted.
Miss Isobel Gillies was appointed
ticket seller in the upstairs booth
at the picture show.
A community lawn mower is to
be provided for the use of members
of the League. This desirable
machine will be kept at the home
of Mr. F. Dresser, to whom application will be made by members
for its use.
It was reported that the walk to
the Ball Park from the Flats was
in poor shape and in need of repair
It will be given attention at once.
It was decided to utilize more
space iu the weekly house-to- house
sheet, "The Notice Board," so as to
give more publicity to sports, etc.
It was reported that another
volunteer working party had been
busy on the softball grounds and
were putting them in good shape.
The efforts of these volunteer workers were much appreciated.
A general view of Alice Arm, showing the Alice Arm Hotel on the bill to the left. This picture
was taken before the present roads were surveyed and buildings n.ov<d (o'cphfoini with them.
Every summer many Anyox people spend holidays here, and this year the number promises to
exceed any previous year.
Millers and  X-Rupert
Teams Win
Grinders Wern't In Picture
Suffering their first defeat at
Softball this season, Bonanza were
put through the mill by the Millers
in a league fixture on Monday
evening last. It was one of the
fastest and closest games of the
season, featured by splendid pitching and fielding on both sides. The
final score was 3-2.
The same evening a game was
played between Grinders and
X-Rupert, but was oalled in the
fifth inning with the score 26 to 1
in favor of the fishing town boys.
The game was played iu a drizzling rain.
The amounts realized at collections taken at these games are encouraging   to  the  committee.

Popular Anyox Couple Wed
In Vancouver
Herald  Is Now   Published
On Friday
Owing to the ohange of dates in
the mail service between Alice Arm
and Anyox during the summer
months. The Herald, will, commencing this week be published on
Friday instead of Saturday. The
newspapers will arrive at Auyox
each Friday afternoon at 4 p.m.
^instead of Saturday morning.        {
At eight p.m. on Thursday, June
Hth. iit the Greek Orthodox
Church at Vancouver, the wedding
took place of Miss Alice Abramson
and Mr. John Lazorek, of Anyox.
These young people are well known
in Anyox where Mr. Lazorek is
popular in sports circles. They
are at present spending a holiday
with Mrs. D. Lazorek, at 2547
Trinity St. Vancouver, and plan to
return to Anyox about the middle
of July.
Gingham and  Overall
Dance Was Success
Many Original Costumes In
Evidence
Trout   at Alice  Arm  Are
Beginning To Bite
The trout fishing season at Alice
Arm has commenced earlier this
year than formerly. While no big
catches have been made, local anglers have hooked a few good meals.
July and August are the best fishing months, and visitors from
Anyox delight to fish in the streams
adjacent to Alioe Arm, aud many
visit the celebrated Bowman Lakes
where good fishing oan generally
be obtained.
''Whatever is worth doing is
worth doing well" is the slogan of
the enterprising Mine Branch of
the A- C. L., and this applied particularly to the real old fashioned
country dance which was held in
the Mine Hall on Friday the 15th.
The costumes and the whole atmosphere of the old barn spelt
''Hick" in caps, and made the func
tion unique and most enjoyable.
Many realistic country dresses
and suits were in evidence, and
not a few were quite original and
smart. ! Mrs. Ed. Gibb and Mr.
Smathers secured the first prize for
the most original costumes, Mrs.
Harold Black and Mrs. Mills
carrying off the second prize as
"Two Little Girls in Blue Gingham." Mr. C. Black in a true
hick outfit also secured a prize, and
for the guessing of the titles of old-
time dance numbers played by the
orchestra, Miss Frances Wilkinson
was the winner.
The Revellers surpassed themselves with the quality of the music
rendered. A most enjoyable supper was served and the evening
was voted a real success. Con
gratulations to the energetic com
mittee in oharge.
Big Celebration On July
2nd. Being Planned
By Com. League
Starts at 9:15 a.m. Monday
And Finishes —- a.m. Tuesday
Like  the  celebrations  in   a big
city will be the doings  in  Anyox-
li Dominion Day, Monday July
2nd.    The vast program  prepared
>y the Beach and Mine Branches
of the A. C. L. and which will be
carried out according to schedule,
and will provide fun and sport for
young and old. There won't be a
dull moment all day.  -
The Grand Parade is timed for
9.15, but long before that time the
smoke will be rising from countless
J chimneys while hasty breakfasts
are being prepared, and finishing
touches will be given to floats and
faces. Sharp at 9.30 the parade
will advance from the bridge near
the public school. This is the
great event in which the children
delight. Everything on wheels
that can be decorated will be seen
iu that parade. Adults, also, will
figure in the colorful ribbon of vehicles etc., as many of them are
secretly preparing to spring surprises upon the citizens. From
marathon, bicycle, and skipping,
races and boxing contests to a
grand baseball game, and a Dominion Day Dance in the Gym, the
program moves right along.
The damp weather of tlie past
week is reminiscent of the summers
of 1932 and 1933.
The Anyox Community League
have purchased a lawn mower for
the use of its members. It will
perhaps be used also by members
of the Golf Club when the greens
need mowing.

Prosperous North Makes
Prosperous South
After a lapse of several years the
Vancouver Board of Trade visited
the northern B. C. coast this month
and saw for themselves how the
north had weathered the depression,
and how optimistic everyone was
of the future. They inspected the
pulp and paper mills at Ocean Falls,
employing1 approximately 1000 men.
They saw the centre of the B. C.
fishing industry at Prince Rupert,
and sailed on the magnificent harbor. They viewed the mines,
smelter, concentrating mill, etc. at
Anyox ind marvelled at the extent
of operations there that employed
over 1100 men continually throughout the year, and were surprised to
learn that during the past five years
when payroll reductions were
widespread no curtailment whatever
had been made at Anyox. They
visited the Premier and other mines
at Stewart, and were amazed when
told what wealth had been taken
from the ground at the Premier.
A good many of the visitors realized
for the first time how much business
Vancouver derives from the northern industries, and there is no
doubt that the visitors from the
south understand how important a
prosperous north is to Vancouver.
It will be noted that all the places
mentioned above, with the exception
of the Premier, are located on tidewater.
For lack of railways 'and truck
roads the development of the north
above Prince Rupert is limited to
the coastal area. Perhaps, however, before the next visit of the
Vancouver Board of Trade a railway will be built or building from
Stewart to the interior, and in addition to coastal industrial centres,
the visitors will be able to view interior towns supporting industries
equally as large as they saw this
month. It is also quite possible
that they will be able to step into a
train or auto at Alice Arm and
speed to the Kitsault River Glacier,
for the Kitsault Valley has a vast
potential mineral wealth that eventually will be fully developed.
Real High Grade Ore
At Columario Mine
Near Usk
Ore to the value of $800.00 per
ton was encountered about the middle of May at the Columario Consolidated Gold Mines Limited at
Usk, and there is great rejoicing
fat head office in Toronto, as well as
at the mine at Usk, says the Hazelton Omineca Herald.
Three samples of ore were sent
to Toronto on May 30th. where
they were assayed. The first sample was from across a four foot
vein and it gave a return of 24.24
ozs. of gold and 55.94 ozs. of silver.)
This was from raise 349.
Another sample from raise No.
3410 gave a return of 1.76 ozs. gold
and 1.36 ozs. silver. This was
across five feet.
Another great feature of recent
discovery is of two veins on Columario claim having the same dip
and strike as the other veins, and
at approximately an elevation of
1000 feet below the haulage tunnel
and between the mine and the mill
and thus proving a downward continuation of the veins and ore
bodies above.
Consulting Engineer Batten of
Vancouver was at the property last
week and the new features were
most encouraging to him.
About seventy men are employed
at the property and all the work is
going along in fine shape. Four
power drills working two shifts are
employed. The tramway, having a
capacity of 100 tons per eight hours
will be completed before the end of
June. The water system to the
mine and mine camp has been completed and the electric lighting sys-
em installed.
C. N.  Railways Revenues
Show Increase
The gross revenues of the all inclusive Canadian National Railways
System for the week ending May
21st. 1934, were $3,377,389, as
compared with $2,883,262 for the
corresponding period of 1933, an
increase of $494,127.

United Empire Mine To Have
Longest and Highest Single
Span Tramway
The United Empire mine at Stewart will have the longest andilx;
highest single span aerial tramway
in the world when it is completed.
The span will stretch from the upper terminal at the mine and crossing Bear River to the lower terminal and ore bunkers on the Bear
River valley road three miles above
town.
The span will be 5500 feet in
length, the longest span in the
world. The Yankee Mine in Utah
held this distinction in the past. In
addition to its great length, the

Wild Animals Friendly on Banff-Windermere Highway

"The Friendly Road," toy Dajvid
GrayBon, which Is well-known to
many lovers of nature, depicts incidents and friendliness of people
along country roads and In the rural
districts. There Is, however, a road
In the Canadian Rockies the friendliness of which Is not due to mortals
as In Grayson's book, but to the
friendliness of animals. Animals
termed wild, but in this Instance a
•nord that cannot be applied to those
on the Banff-Windermere Highway.
y There Is possibly no more beautiful road than this which runs from
Banff to Lake Windermere, In the
Columbia River Valley. The distance
of 104 miles Is spectacular and the
soenes are constantly changing. The
views from the high passes looking
down into valleys, thousands of feet

pine meadows, rivers crossed and re-
crossed, and glimpses of cascades
tumbling down slopes from dizzy
heights are dntrigulng and beautiful.
To this natural beauty Is added
that of seeing the animals ln their
natural haunts. Rocky Mountain
sheep are seen on the road alone
Vermillion Lakes not far from Banff.
They are so tame that often motors
have to slow down as they will persist, almost to tike point of danger,
ln standing In the .middle Of the
'highway.
Bozo, a black bevr, is u friend to

Bozo no doubt had many dreams
during the winter of summer tourists, and possibly has figured out la

tlie most out of the tourist season.
Deer are seen, also, on this famous
highway, though not as often at
other animals. They are regular visitors to Banff, and are frequently
seen on the streets of the village.
There are hundreds ot miles of

ALICE   ARM        j ALICE   ARM   AND  ANYOX   HEBALD,   Friday,   June 22, 1934
Predicts Increased Mineral Production For
Present Year
Report of Minister of Mines
Optimistic of Future
With the close of 1933, it is
quite definite that the mineral industry of the Provinoe has entered
upon a period of renewed activity
aud that the decline of the depression years has given way to a distinct upward trend, says the Summary of the Provincial Report of
tho Minister of Mines for 1933.
The chief cause of this upward
trend is the greater production of
gold, and the extensive exploration
and development work being done
iu connection with the search for
gold mines. It is estimated that a
production of lode and placer gold
valued at $6,800,000 is quite likely
to come from the mines of the
Province in 1934. To this sum an
extra $4,700,000 as "premium"
may be received by the producers,
making the gross value in Canadian funds, $11,500,000, an increase
of approximately 65.0 per cent,
over 1933 production valued in the
same way.
Other forms of mining are beginning to show renewed activity,
and the stepping-up of production
from the Sullivan and the reopening of the Monarch mine will materially increase the outputs of lead
and zinc in 1934. Leasers and
some companies are devoting
attention to silver properties.
The copper industry, which has
developed extremely low costs and
remarkably efficient mining and
metallurgical practice during the
lean years, is in an excellent position to take advantage of any slight
increase in the market prices received for copper.
Therefore, in view of the above,
the mineral production in 1934
should considerably exceed that
recorded for 1933. Employment
in the mines, smelters, and concentrators, whioh increased 8.0 per
cent, in 1933 as compared with
1932, should continue to inorease
during 1934. A great deal of indirect employment will also be provided in the industries intimately
associated with the mining aotivity
and in the aggregate much new
wealth will be produced and a large
part of it will be retained and circulated throughout the Province
for the purchase of labour, supplies,
transportation, and miscellaneous
services. In the aggregate, the
mining plants and personnel of the
industry are efficient and advantage is being quickly taken of the
distinct upward trend now apparent in metal prices.
Herald Thirteen Years
Old This Month
No Growth, But Flourishing
Thirteen years ago this month
the first edition of the Herald was
published. Since that time, week
in, week out, the Herald has given
the people of Anyox and Alice Arm
the news of the district in a concise
and breezy manner. Similiar to
all other weekly newspapers, the
Herald has experienced its ups and
downs, but it has managed to survive. The size of the Herald has
not increased during its life of
thirteen years, but this is entirely
due to the limited amount of local
advertising available. We have,
to the best of our ability given our
readers as much news as is possible
and we are gratified to know that
our efforts have been appreciated
as we still have a number of people
on our subscription lists whose
names were there in 1921.
No Baseball News This Week
We regret to inform our sports
readers that the copy for the report of the baseball games failed
to reach us this week. This no
doubt was due to the change in the
local mail service. Accidents are
bound to happen sometimes, as the
old adage says, ''Even in the best
regulated families."
Government Mineral Laboratories Well Equipped
Canada's mineral laboratories,
which have been described by the
Honourable W. A. Gordon, Minister of Mines, as probably the best
equipped on the continent, are proving an important factor in the development of Canada's mineral
resources. A recent report for 1932
shows that in that year 64 investigations were reported, which is the
greatest number for any one year
since laboratory facilities were provided for this type of work. The
activities in gold mining are indicated by the fact that just half of the
total investigations were related to
gold ores.
BIRTH AT ANYOX
Born to Mr. and Mrs. R. Ballentyne, at the Anyox General Hospital, on Saturday, June 16th. a
daughter.
If your subscription to The
Herald is in arrears will you please
make an effort to pay as soon as
you can conveniently do so?
Owing to the change in the local
mail service this week, whioh necessitated The Herald being published one day earlier, the amount
of local news is not as large as
usual, but next week we hope to
be at par again. ■
Premier T. D. Pattullo states
that there is no likelihood of a session of the Legislature this fall.
No Dominion Tax Levied
On Placer Gold
No Dominion tax is being levied
on placer gold production in British
Columbia. This statement is made
definitely from authoritative sources.
Its purpose is to clear up some misunderstanding apparently in the
minds of miners and some of those
who have been marketing their
gold. Reports have reached the
Provincial Mines Department that
this misconception of recent Dominion imposts, and their effect on
placer gold mining, has let merchants and others who have been
buying the precious metal to collect
deductions altogether too heavy in
light of the facts, in order to adequately protect themselves. The
result has been an injustice to the
miner and for this reason an official
statement has been thought proper.
The charges made in connection
with the marketing of gold through
the Dominion Assay Office, Vancouver, are set out in a pamphlet
issued from the Royal Canadian
Mint, Ottawa. This gives details
which may be summarized to indicate that charges collected for as-
sajing and refining on ordinary
small deposits of the kind submitted by placer miners will not exceed
$3.00. Full premium is added,
from which is deducted a handling
charge of $1.00 per fine ounce,
which in the case of deposits exceeding SO oz. fine each, is reduced
to 25c. per fine ounce. Settlements
are made in full on completion of
assays, in the order of receipt;
owing, however, to the greatly enhanced price of gold and the consequent increase in the number of
deposits being received at the Dominion Assay Office, Vancouver,
some delay is occasioned in issuing
returns.
