Work has also been done this

ore throughout will be encountered.
Another vein of ore was located

■made,   and the vein shows solid

Several other veins have been
located on the property, but no
work has yet been done on them,
due principally to transportation
difficulties. ,..
The work done this summer on
the Fox proves conclusively that
large  ore  bodies exist,, and   the
property only awaits development
in order to prove up the ore bodies
at depth.

Big Logging Camps
for Alice Arm
Contract Signed for Twenty
Million Feet.
■ i >
Tretheway Brothers, of Abbots-
ford, owners of the Abbotsford
Timber, Mining & Development
Company, have recently made a
contract with the Pacific Mills,
Ltd., of Ooean Falls, calling for the
delivery of 20,000,000 feet of timber
from their Alice Arm property, the
timber to be delivered within two
years. Reports have reached tow n
that the work of getting out the
logs- will commence this fall. The
deal was affected by J. E. Taylor,
of the Ocean Falls Co.
It will be remembered that dur-
the visit of Mr. S. Tretheway here
last year, he stated that the land
owned by them would be logged
off as soon as a market could be
found for the logs, and that the
stumps would be pulled and the
ground converted into agricultural
lands. Now that a market has
been found for the logs, it will be
only a matter of a short time
befi|| tractive operations are commenced.
Horse Shoe Group
Looking Good
Trail Needed to Encourage
Mr. Elmer Ness brought down
some fine samples of ore during the
week, from the Horse Shoe Group,
situated on McGrath Mountain.
The ore consists of grey copper and
is of very high grade, some pieces
being practically pure oopper.
The opeh cut on the property
has been deepened, and the high
grade ore vein has widened from
16 inches on the surface to nearly
3 feet, on a depth of 10 feet, whioh
fact looks very encouraging for the
future of the property.
The development of this property is, however, greatly handi
capped by the lack of a suitable
trail. E. Elge, late manager of
the Esperanza, recently agreed to
develop the property, but owing to
the absence of a suitable trail, he
abandoned the project. It is hoped
and expected that the government
will build a trail into this section
in the near future so that develop
meut will not be retarded, for this
section, unlike the upper Kitsault,
does not depend on the operation
of the Dolly Varden Railway for
the transportation of supplies, but
is ready for extensive development
just as soon as trails are built into
the country.
Mr. H, F. Kergin, M L, A, left
on Thursday, for Nelson, to attend
the big Liberal Convention, to be
held there on the 28th. and 29th.
He expects to be away two weeks.
Weekly Meeting of
Anyox Community
League Council
The regular weekly meeting of
the Community League Council,,
was held in the Reoreatipn Hall,
on Wednesday evening, September"
20th, at 8 p.m. ; Present: President Ferguson, Secretary-Treasurer C. J. Lowry, Councillors Mrs.
McKay, Messrs. Rowley, Murdoch.
Noel, Armour, Buzzelle and Sherman.
The minutes of the preceeding
meeting were read and adopted.
On reports of committee's being
a,sked for, Mr. Rowley, Chairman
of Choral and Dramatic Department, told of a meeting to be held
in the Rest Room on Monday
evening, September 25th, for the
purpose of forming a Dramatic
Club in connection with the Community League.
Mr. Murdoch told of progress in
connection with the Tennis Club
Dance to be held in the Recreation
Hall, on Friday, September 22nd.
The minutes of a special meeting
ot the Council *Held in the Rest
Room on Friday evening, September 18th, were read. The Chairman explained the object of this
meeting, which was to hear the
report of the Finance Committee
in connection with the Beach
gymnasium and take whatever
action was necessary to further the
project without loss of . time.
These minutes were endorsed by
the Council oh the motion of Mr.
Lowry, which was seconded by
Mr. Armour.
Mr. Rowley took up the matter
of a piano teacher. Mr. Armour
thought that it would be advisable
to give' a local musician the chance
if one could be obtained. Mrs. Eve
spoke on the matter and said that
for the past several years nothing
had been done for the ohildren of
Anyox. What was wanted was
something more tangible than talk
and the children should have the
best consistent with reason. Mr.
Armour agreed with this, saying
there was nothing too good for the
ohildren of Anyox, and a certiflcat-
teacher should be seoured. Mr.
Lowry suggested advertising for a
teaoher. Mr. Selfe thought that
the Sohool Board should consider
the proposal in conduction with the
League, the teacher to instruct in
the schools. Mrs. Eve thought
there would be a good living for a
teacher, independent of the schools,
for there were some forty pupils
available. Mr. Armour said he
would like to see a teaoher of piano,
Violin and voice. It was finally
moved by Mr. Armour, and seconded by Mrs. McKay that a
teacher of piano and voice be advertised for. Mr. Lowry asked
that the advertisement read to
give preference to a teaoher able
to do orchestral work.? This was
agreed to.
Elks Celebrate
Winning Ball Cup
Speeches, Toasts and Songs
at Big Smoker
On Tuesday evening, September
19, the Elks, whose team won the
Cup, emblematic of the champion-^
ship of the Anyox Baseball League,
for the 1922 season, held a smoker
at the Dugout, when about a
hundred sat down to supper, which
did oredit to chef Jim Thomson,
who was ably assisted by Jim
Foxley, Jim Blaney, and several
other Jimmies.' P. Draudson,
t wirier of the cup winners, occupied
the chair, and opened the proceedings . by passing round the Cup,
which was filled with a joy producing fluid. The Chairman gave
a .most appropriate speech,' finishing by proposing a toast to the
Mine team, the holders of the Cup
last year, and who, put up some
great battles to retain it this year.
Mr. A. Ployart, manager of the
Mine team, replied, and reciprocated with a toast to the Elks' team,
followed by a toast to the Smelter
team, the team although finishing
at the bottom of the League, made
the game interesting. Mr. H.
Davis, manager of the Smelter
team responded.
Mr. H. F. Kergin, M. L. A. gave
a short address, concerning the
history of baseball in Anyox, from
its inception, citing occasions on
which Alice Arm had defeated
Anyox. He then proposed a toast
to the Alice Arm baseball team.
Mr. Chas. Wing was the next
speaker, and he dealt with sports
in general, attributing the success
of the past season to the untiring
work of Mr. F. Kelley, seoretary of
the Anyox Community League,
which was followed by insistent
calls for Mr. Kelley, who made a
•short speech.
Mr. F. Mealy, captain of the
Mine team was called upon, and he
replied in a few word, saying, that
he was only sorry that he was
drinking from the cup down at the
Beach, instead of up on the Mine
hill. '
Mr. Fred Archer gave an excel-
Mrs, McKay asked that something be done to aid the children
of the Mine to get to and from
sohool during the winter months.
There were twenty-four ohildren
between nine and ten years of age
who had difficulty in attending
when the snow was deep. Mr.
Armour thought that the same
thing also applied to the Beach
children. It was finally decided
that Mrs. McKay, with ihe Sec-'
retary, investigate the report.
It was moved that a clarinet be
purchased for a player, who would
play for dances, etc., paying for
the instrument as it was earned.

Anyox General Store
Picnic to Alice Arm
«   —
The Anyox General Store picnic
held at the Alice Arm Hotel, last
Sunday, was like all preceeding
store picnics, a decided success.
Owing to the boys picking out a
rather damp day the scene of activities were transferred to the Hotel
instead of the open air, but although the weather was damp the
spirits of the fifty-three trippers
refused to be dampened, and a
merry old time was spent by everyone. Lunch and supper were
served at the Hotel, and the tables
groaned beneath the huge piles of
good eats that were brought along,
and anyone was welcome to sit
down and eat their fill.
The party left at 7* p.m., after
spending a very pleasant and enjoyable day.
Death of Little Boy
this Week, at Anyox
The death occurred Wednesday,
September 20th, at the Anyox
Hospital, of Charles McLeod, aged
11 years, eldest son of Mr. and
Mrs. Norman McLeod. Death was
due to septic tonsilitis and pnemo-
nia. He was sick for two weeks
and passed away last Wednesday,
at 5 p.m. Much sympathy is expressed for the parents in their
sad bereavement, having been residents of Anyox for a number of
years. The funeral will take place
today at the Anyox cemetery.

Address by Hon. Wm. Sloan,
at the International Mining
Convention at Nelson
At the fourth International
Mining Convention, recently held
at Nelson, the Hon. Wm. Sloan,
minister oi mines, in addressing the
Convention, reviewed the condition
of the mining industry along the
lines of the Annual Report of his
department. Within the area of
the Rocky Mountains to the Pacific, from the International Boundary to the Artie, was an area of
550,000 square miles of mountain
ranges, in which mining would be
the basic industry. British Columbia offered a great field for
prospectors and the government
was doing all it could to encourage
prospecting. The lectures by the
resident engineers had been attended by 3,000 men. Displays were
being made in such centres as
Nelson of samples of economic
minerals to enable prospectors to
familiarize themselves with such
minerals as they might be expected
to discover. The Cedar Creek
excitement had shown that there
were places where concentration of
gold was sufficiently marked to
assure profitable working, and the
yield oi the benches there led to
the belief that the day of the
individual miner with his rocker
and sluice-box had not passed in
Cariboo. A considerable increase
in the gold output might be expected by bydraulicing and dredging
in the Omineca and Peace River
as well as the Cariboo.
In lode mining, the Premier had
paid $900,000 in dividends within
the past few months. The owner
of copper should take heart   ...
In regard to the iron and steel
industry, an arrangement had been
made with the Dominion Government for the investigation of the
iron ore deposits of the province,
including those near Kitchener, and
and at Sand Creek, Bull River, for
the guidance of those having in
view the establishment of an iron
and steel industry. The work,
which was in charge of Dr. Young
would be assisted by the Mines
Department by diamond Drilling
and other development where necessary to, obtain information as to
the extent of the deposits.
Coal mining was essential to the
production of iron and steel and
they had large reserves of coal
—enough to keep the fires of
industry burning for generations.
For the past ten years coal mining
had made progress, and it was
hard to understand the shortsighted policy of their own people
in using imported oil fuel to operate
plants and heat buildings.
The people should be behind
the government in their effort to
get the question of freight rates
adjusted, as it was a matter of
much importance to the mining
industry. In Canada, mine products constituted 35 per cent, of
the tonnage handled by the railways; in the United States, 54
per cent; and in the United
Kingdom, 76.8 per cent. He congratulated the Associated Boards
of Trade of Eastern British Columbia on their action in regard to
discriminatory rates on basic commodities. He congratulated the
committee in charge of the arrangements. The Convention had a
healthy and inspiring tone. Its
success must be a source of gratification to the committee and to the
people of Nelson.

English Speaking Nations
Should Co-operate
Mr. T. A. Rickard, of San Francisco,
speaking at the Mining Convention,
at Nelson, on "The, English-Speaking
peoples," in which he instanced the
goodwill of the United States and
Canada by their boundary line of 8,500
miles without a fort or battleship.
Their common speech was a bond of
common thought. If the world was to
be saved from ruin, and civilization
from suicide, it would be by the
English Language. He denounced
W. R. Hearst as "a pimp of journalism, a printing pestilence" in his abuse
-of the British nation: and Horatio
Bottomley should be restricted to the
Hittite tongue in his abuse of the
United States. Americans and Canadians should study the beautiful
French language. He defined true
patriotism as enlightened devotion to
one's country for the benefit of
humanity. England was the free
common mother of the commonwealths of the world. Their peaceful
co-operation as two nations would
extinguish hatred and preserve peace.

There was some discussion over

Mrs. Hoffman asked about the

yhy the people of the Beach had
ot been given a chance to vote on
lie matter, and thought that a
kating rink would be the btet

sir. Buzzelle told of the rink at
Uice Arm, and that a rink of the
ame kind could be constructed
lero at a small cost. Mr. Rowley
aid that he was one of the share-
lolders of the Alice Arm rink, and
hat the construction had cost
$000 with voluntary labor. The
lieague did not have the money,
dr. Simpson spoke to the effect
hat the winters here were not
ufficiently cold enough to warrant

o be supplied with an ice making
lachine after it was erected. It
las thought that an open air rink
