Outsider Property to
be Developed
The Outsider property, which is
situated on the Portland Canal will
be developed during the year by
the Granby Company, said Mr. H,
S. Munroe, in an interview with
the Herald during the week.
Mr. Munroe said that the, property is looking good and that 50 or
60 men would be working there in
"about another mouth, and that
most of these would be working
underground. At present about
25 men are' emplos'ed. The pile-
driving crew is already on the job
and preparations are being made
for the building of the new wharf.
The slashing of the right-of-way
for the aerial tram from mine, to
wharf has been completed, • and
a contract has been let to the Riblet Co. of Spokane, to build the
tram line. The Riblet Co. built the
long tram at the Premier Mine
at Stewart. The tramline at
the Outsider^will be about 6000
feet in length, and work will be
commenced as soon as equipment
can be assembled on the ground.
A .Rogers' compressor will he
installed, and also a water driven
100 k. w. generator for the purpose
-of generating electric powers for
s the motors.
Mr. Palmer J. Cook) formerly of
the Midas Mine at Valdez, Alaska,
a property operated by the Granby
•Co, will be in charge of operations.
The Outsider is the oldcs); shipping property on the north coast
and was operated by the^ Brown-
Alaska Company in 1906, who
shipped several, thousand tons of
ore to Hedley smelter, in ,Alaska.
The ore is pyritized quartz winch
runs high in silica and which is
needed by the Granby Co. for
mixing with the Hidden Creek ores
for fluxing purposes at the smelter.
Dance at Alice Arm
A dance was held on Friday
May 11th; at the Alice Arm Coh\
seum, to celebrate the opening'of
the Hall for the summer. A good
number of people were present and
a very enjoyable evening was spent.
The proprietors, Messrs. W. McDonald and V. Johnson were the hosts
A first olass supper was served, of
which there were lots of good things
to eat, and lots to spare. Dancing
was carried on until the early hours
of the morning, and everyone voted
the opening dance of the Coliseum
a great success.

the Esperanza
The Esperanza Mine shipped
last year) 231 tons of ore, from
which the following values were
obtained. Gold 22 ozs; silver 12,
128 ozs; copper 404 pounds; lead

will exceed "last year both as
regards tonnage and value ' of
Weekly Meeting of
Anyox Community
League Council
The regular weekly meeting of
the Community League Counoil
was held in the Recreation Hall
on Friday, May 10th. Present:
President Lewis, Vice-President
Callanan, Seoretary-Treasurer
Townshend, Councillors Mrs. Dwyer Mrs. Cloke, Dr. Harper and Mr.
The minutes of the preceding
meeting were read and approved
on motion of Dr. Harper, seconded
by Mr. Callanan.' The Secretary's
report stated that Mr. Moss of
Alice Arm, would print the sport
schedule for'the privilege of advertising on the back of the schedule.
Mr. Jack Smith had promised to
make estimate of ventilator installation in the Recreation Hall, and
Mr. Geary had been along the.
same lines. An invitation had been
received from Stewart requesting
the League to send baseball and
football teams to Stewart for the
24th, of May. New footbaff nets
have been ordered from Vancouver.
The mattervof supplying lemons,
etc. to the football players was
discussed, the final decision being,
to leave the matter to the Finance
Committee. In connection with
the ventilation of the picture sho*f,
Mr. Geary had given the Secretary
an approximate estimate of the
cost of installation of 24in. fan with
the motor. Mr. Selfe also had
some figures, and had made some
investigations. The Council
decided to wire the Canadian
Westinghouse Company, Vancouver - for . prices on two fans, one
twenty-six and three quarters
inches, the other thirty-twoauches.
In connection, with the dance
advertised by the Elks in the
Recrecreation Hall for the night of
the 23rd. of May, Mr. Townshend
stated that he had been requested
to take the matter of changing the
show..date from Tuesday to Moiv
day, up with the Council, so that
there would be a chance to put up
the decorations. The Council did
not see their way clear to do this,
and thought that these decorations
might be done on Monday night.
Mr. Callanan mentioned the
matter of fixing the footpath aoross
the creek on the trestle carrying
the pipe-line. A great many sport
fans used this way to the ball
grounds, and if this wasn't, in
repair they wouldn't attend. The
Council decided that as the Company ' had no objection to the/
people going this way, that the
League should undergo the expense
of repairing it.
Mr. Simpson told of what excellent prospects there were for first
class football during the present
season, and asked that first aid
outfit be always on ground. The
Secretary replied that the groundsman had been instructed to have
bandages, etc., always on the

Prosperous Times
for Alice Arm Camp
All signs point to a busy season
for Alice Arm this summer. The
logging camps are commencing to
open up, and considerable , more
men will be required for this industry, as the scope of operations are.
widened, whioh will now be only a
matter of a few days.
Whilevno big ruining operations
have yet commenced it is highly
probably that next month will see
several. companies undertaking
development work. While no
word has yet beeti reoeived regarding the plans of |;he Dolly Varden
Properties Ltd. it is expected that
company which was recently formed, will operate, the property
this year. Other mining companies are becoming interested in i the
camp, and this year should witness
a renewal of mining activity of
considerable proportions. (
A new bridge across the Kitsault
River will be built this year by the
Provincial government, which will
employ a big crew of men for some
months. Anyox trippers will visit
Alice Arm this year in increasing
numbers, now that pur wonderful
climate, scenery, fishing «tc.. are
better known. .So that taking all
these things into Consideration
Alice Arm will be, this summer, a
'live and prosperous tpwn.

Mr. J. Wheatley expects to be
ready to pull logs at the camp next
week. Falling'of timber has been
going on for some time, this work
being done by contract by J. Sexton and J. Gray. The new
building to be used as living quart-
ersfor the" men is now finished, and
logging operations will soon be in
full swing.
Fred Miller is getting out a
number of timbers about three
miles down the inlet. These timbers will be used by the Granby
Co. at Anyox for trestle work.
Timber falling is steadily proceeding at the Quartz Quarry and the
pulling of logs will shortly commence.
Carney & Co. are making a good
showing at the hand logging camp
at Way Point. A six ton hand
winch will shortly be installed for
pulling logs.

Owen Loftus and Mr; Wallace
arrived from Anyox on Tuesday,
and work is again proceeding on
the Esperanza high grade,
The Lone Maid property is,
according to -latest reports, -looking
very good. The tunnel is being
driven on a white quartz vein
which oarries good silver values,
and the owners are very optimistic
regarding the future of the property.
We were always under the
impression that the. special men
employed by the Liquor board, to
enforce1 the law, were a swift bunch
who blew into a town, and nabbed
all the males aud females who
were selling liquor and then blew
out like a young cyclone before any
harm came to them. But since we
have had a close-up view of
their work our opinion has somewhat changed. It took them ten
days in Alice Arm in order to get
enough evidence to convict one
house, and this house, by the way,
is the only hotel in the town.
If the Alice Arm Hotel is closed
for the next six months, and there
is a possibility of this being done,
a great hardship will be worked
upon the town. We are now at
the commencement of a busy
summer and travellers arriving will
have no place to stop. Anyox
trippers will be barred from
staying overnight in our town, and
the negotiations now being made
by the Anyox Community League
for the use of the building
for camping purposes will fall
through. If this is the
kind of work these special . law
enforcers pull off, no wonder they
are treated with contempt by their
fellow men.
Last week we published a statement that Mr. E. P. Matheson,
formerly of the Anaconda Copper
Co. had accepted an appointment

A few weeks ago two stool
pigeons of the government liquor
board arrived in Alice Arm, and
registered at the leading hostelry.
They stayed around for ten days,
having a whale of a time, and gave
it out that they were waiting for
the new dam at Anyox to commence operations. After their
departure they laid information
against three members of the hotel
staff, and convictions have followed. Any man who for a monetary consideration will endeavour to
make his fellow men break the
laws for the purpose .of informing
on them is deserving of all the con-
terriptable things one can say
against him. The fact that these
creatures are touring the province
at the public expense, which must
be considerable—if their visit to
Alice Arm can be taken as a
sample—is a public disgrace. If
the law cannot be enforced without using such, despicable men and
means to enforce it, we surely
must be degenerating instead of
advancing. Prevention is better
than cure, and if the law had been
strictly enforced when government
control was first instituted, the inexcusable low-down methods of
obtaining convictions would not
exist. ,
Hon. E. D. Barrow, minister of
agriculture, reports that the total
number of cattle in British Columbia
at December 31st. last was 105,070 but
there were not sufficient cows to
supply all the milk consumed in the
province. Every encouragement is
being given the industry by the minister and his officials and a marked
increase in the number of cattle is
looked for this year.
The provincial forest branch reports
the revenue from the sale of timber,
timber licences, timber leases and scale
and royality for April amounted to

Anyox Baseball
Season Opens
The Anyox Senior Baseball
League opened on Monday evening
in the presence of some 500 spectators. The contesting teams being
the Mine and Smelter. The Smelter wej'o the first team to bat.
The President of the Baseball
League, Dr. D. R, Learoyd, being
a medical man, performed the operation of opening the season. The
Doctor did not consider a serious
operation necessary as baseball had
only been suffering from inerta
since last season, which was quickly relieved by the administration of
a pill. The first ball over the
plate. Mathewson. the first man
to bat knew that the Doctor
would only ask him to take what
was good for him, It was a strike,
and Matheson met it on the nose,
making first base. The Doctor
then turned over the pitching to
Jimmy Ferguson, D. Greenwell
being behind the bat for the Mine.
Curly McRowen was the Smelter second man to bat, and Brown
followed with a bunt, bringing
Matheson home. Cole hit next,
McRowen home; Sinclair hits
Brown home, the Smelter tallying
three runs in the first innings,
these being all they made during
the game.
The Mine went to bat, Curly
McRowen pitching and his brother
Charlie catching. Mealy led off
for the Mine, making 1st. Greenwell with a two bagger assisted by
wild throw to the catcher brought
Mealy home, tallying the only run
for the Mine during the game.
The pitchers both seemed to be
in good form, holding the batters
down tha.t only ciphers appeared
on the score board after the 1st.

Special to the Herald
Most producers ore holding at 16 7-8
cents a pound delivered but one
important producer is quoting 16 3-4
cents and others would be willing to
sell moderately at that price. Second
hands have besn cutting price somewhat and have sold at prices equivalent to slightly under 16 5-8 cents
delivered Connecticut valley point,
Actual sales have been made at 16 3-8
cents refinery in last two days, while
copper has been bought aside ship at
161-2 cents and slightly under.
All this second-hand offering is of
little importance and is due mainly to
the small amount of copper that each
month gets into the hands of speculative interests upon which they must
either make payment by end of this
month, or specify destination by tenth
of next month. Total amount of
under-market offering is probably not
much more than 2,000,000 pounds as a
liberal estimate. Largest individual
second-hand sale this week has been
350,000 pounds, and most sales that are
being talked about so much are in a
carload lots of around 25 to 30 tons or
50,000 to 60,000 pounds.

On Sunday, teams representing
underground and surface workers at
the Mine played a baseball game, just
to settle an argument, and although
the surface men came off victors, the
undergrounds are not satisfied to
accept the decision, so they will have
their revenge at a later date.
The game was fast and furious at
times, the surface winning by 7 runs
to the underground's 5.
The undergrounds excused themselves by the fact that the surface men
are more used to daylight.
