about 5 miles up the Alliance River
They have brought samples in town
and it is pronounced by all who
have seen it to be fine ore.
The Bellevue Mine
The Bellvue Mine on the Alliance
river is showing very encouraging
results. Work was commenced
last fall and was continued all
through the winter. The tunnel is
in 235 feet with a depth of 100 feet.
Two ore bodies were encountered
in driving the tunnel, but is not
believed to be the main ore body.
Cross-witting has now commenced,
to looate the main body, and if this
is successful, extensive development
work will be done.

Don Cameron has started to
paint his residence, and when completed, it will be an imposing
structure.
It is reported that a few mosqui-
tos have made their appearance in
woods. Probably blown over from
the Naas.
Granby Company
Beats its own Record
Picnic and Smoker given
in honour of the Occasion
On Saturday, the Granby Company was "At Home" to their
employees at the Anyox Ball Park.
Th9 occasion was an open air
smoker celebration for the heaviest
tonnage turned out by the Granby
Company for any one month in its
history here. The ball grounds
gave one the impression of a circus
being in town. There were four
tents put up, one for the boxing
aspirants and three others to look
after the wants of the inner man,
both as to eating and slaking his
thirst which was at times abnormal
In this respect the company provided sandwiches, beer, soda pop,
cigars and cigarettes and anything
was to be had for the asking of it.
There was also a boxing stage
put up with bleachers on three
sides, and the bouts put up by the
boys more than gave pleasure to
everyone watching these sports.
The big event staged was by Fitz-
patrick and Jack Sherman. If
Fitz had only landed his blows.
Jack would be in the Hospital
today, Fortunately he is a gas
eater and to use his own expression
"you can't kill 'em at all."
The Elk's orchestra furnished
the music between the bouts and it
was enjoyed by everyone. The
handling of the undertaking was
in the capable hands of Mr. Chas.
Wing, who had some able assistants to help along the good workv
The officials of the company
were out with the crowd and
helped to make the event a pleasure both for themselves and their
employees. Such acts as these
once in a while, will do more to
solve the labor and capital difficulties than any preaching or agitating will ever do.
Below is a comparison of the dry
ores shipped from the mine and
smelted last month and the previous
records beld by the company.
May, 1921, Dry ore shipped from
Mine, 88,074 tons.
January, 1918, Dry Ore shipped
from Mine, 85,933 tons.
May, 1921, Ore smelted, 88,789
tons.
December,
87,725 tons.
1918,   Ore smelted,
When the Government starts to
sell the booze they will make so
much money,that there will be no
more poll tax, or income tax, or
any other tax, in fact we may get
a bonus for being alive.
The battle cry then wiil be; "Be
Patriotic, Buy Booze and Reduce
Taxation," and the response will
be magnificent.
Work on Wharf Road
At Alice Arm
Going Ahead
The local Contractors, known as
the O. M. Watson Contracting
Company are making great progress with the work on the Government wagon road from the town to
the wharf. The work is under the
able direction of Mr. H. Wolf, who
is an expert at the game. Two
coyote holes have been shot, besides
numerous gopher holes, etc. The
coyote hole which was fired on May
27th. was a huge success, and displaced about 1500 yards of rock,
just enough powder was used to
procure good results, and a natural
seam in the rock added to the
efficiency, of the shot. Mr. Wolf
estimates that they will be finished
by August 1st, which will be good
time, and by the way all the boys
are working, it sure looks as though
they will. Sixteen men, all local,
are in the contract and a few day
men are working. Following are
the names of the contractors:
O. M. Watson; J. Marshall; D. Kennedy; E. Ness; A. Bertlesen; J. Graham
W. McDonald: G.Matheson; H. Wolf,
G. Moniott; N. Forbes; H. McColl; T.
Martenson; J. McLeod; M, Peterson;
W. M. McFarland.
Anyox Notes
The "Busy Bees" have decided to
hold a Sale of Work, Home Cooking and Candy in the Anglican
Church on Saturday, June 11th, at
3 p.m.
The Anyox Night School Sewing
Class closed the session with a
picnic, for the members and their
families to Larkham Island, May
31st. Those attending were—Mrs.
Mclntyre, teacher; Mrs. Dove; Mrs.
Foxley; Mrs. Cameron; Mrs. Mc-
Knight; Mrs. Morning; Mrs Thompson and Mrs. Phippen. Each lady
took the usual good eats and all
spent a very enjoyable time.
The Salvation Army will hold a
Sale of Home Cooking, Candies,
etc. in the old Anyox school on
Church street, on Saturday, June
18th. Afternoon tea and ice cream
will be served.
Born to Mr. and Mrs. Stevens,
of Anyox, a daughter, both mother
and daughter are-doing well.
Among those leaving for the
south on Thursday, were Mrs.
E. Waterman for Seattle; Mr. and
Mrs. Owens and son; R. Greenwall
C. Parmiter; H. S. Munroe and
Colonel Crabbe.
Rev. J. R, Hewitt and family left
on Thursday for Hazelton. Rev.
Hewitt has been pastor of the
Union Church for over two years,
and will be sadly missed.
Several news items are unavoidably held over until our next issue.
The Man Around Town
The Elk's won the football game on
Sunday evening.
There was a snappy game of football
last Thursday. The score was even up
3 to 3.
E. Loeske and wife left on Monday's
boat on a visit to their old home in
Grand Forks.
Mr, and Mrs. Jack Cody and Family
arrived in town on Thursday's boat.
Welcome home, Jack.
"Happy" Pete Drandson is wearing
a smiling face these days, because he
is to have Jack on the Elk's lineup.
Several parties were out at Bear
Creek on Sunday, and had a very
enjoyable time. ,
The bridge Heads are taking the rest
cure, for the summer months, preparatory to starting in again in the fall.
Bert Wing was over for a day last
week on business. The climate must
suit him. We never saw him looking
so well.
Mr. and Mrs. Bi^k and Mrs.
Ransome of the telephone stall' are
taking a short vacation at Swamp
Point.
Jack Dillon and other experts on
baseball had better rub up on the game
a little. Mr. Gregory has Ixiught a
book of rules. It gets em all sooner or
later.
Miss Stainsby of the Hospital staff
also left for Vancouver. She has been
here a long time and our loss here is
Vancouver's gain. She was a capable
nurse and a very eoncientious worker.
Dr. McKenzie and family left on
Thursday's boat for Vancouver. You
leave behind you lots of good friends
Dr. and will be especially missed
amongst the trapshooters, where you
were always on deck to take a crack
at the birds.
Mi1. Ballautyne also got home after
attending the Methodist Conference.
With him came his daughter, Mi's. G.
Thomson, and her infant girl. Married
life seems to agree with Mrs. Thomson.
She looks just as young as she did
whilst working in the Drygoods Dept.
here some time ago.
Bert Kergin also came home again
from Rupert on Thursday's boat. He
was successful in selling the old boat,
and we wish him and his genial partner just as much business with their
new boat as they did on the old Wake.
One will go a long way these days to
meet more obliging fellows than
Kergin and Fowler.
The Elk's won their game at Baseball on Monday- evening. They have
hit their stride now.
■ Nine new members were initiated at
their meeting on Monday. There was
a good crowd too considering all the .
counter attractions for that evening.
The boys served coffee and sandwiches
after the session and rounded out the
evening with a few songs.
The B, P. O. E. gave a very successful Dance on the King's Birthday, in
the Recreation Hall. While the crowd
was not as large as usual on account of
the very hot weather, those that
stayed away missed one of the best
dances of the year. The music was
grand and reflects great credit on all
the orchestra, while the. lunch was
enjoyed by everyone. As a coffee
maker'George Jessop is in a class by
himself*

The Future of
Alice Arm.
Despite the close-down of the Dolly Varden Mine last fall, the
future of Alice is exceptionally bright, as is admitted by all who know
the country and the mineral wealth contained hi*the Kitsault and
Alliance valleys. Due to financial difficulties, the Taylor Mining Co.
suspended operations at the Dolly Varden last fall, and up to the
present no definite word has been received of operations being resumed.
Mr. Taylor, so far has been unable to raise sufficient money to build a
concentrating plant, extend the railroad to the Wolf, and undertake
development work both at the Dolly Varden and the Wolf. It is
necessary that these things should be done before the mine can be a
permanent shipper, and it will take considerable capital to do it. If
the Taylor Mining Company cannot raise the neccessary capital there is
no doubt they will sell out to some big mining company who has the
capital to develop it, or it will eventually revert to the original owners
or their creditors. We understand there are several mining companies
in the field to take over the property, providing a clear title is granted,
with no chance of litigation to follow as has been the case in the past.
Such a company operating the property, would without a doubt, take
over other properties in the immediate'vicinity on which high grade ore
has been already found in considerable quantities, in order to have an
unlimited supply of ore for the mill. To leave idle two such rich high-
grade silver mines as the Dolly Varden and the Wolf is a calamity to
the district and disastrous to the prosperity of the province. It is to be
hoped that the present tangle will quickly be straightened out, and that
the wheels of industry will be turning once more, so that Alice Arm
can again claim the position as the premier silver mining camp in
British Columbia.
Two properties are working on the Alliance, the Bellevue, operated
by the Alice Arm Holdings Company, and the Silver Star, operated by
Mr. A. J. Bone and Mr. A. R. Hodgson. Work on the Bellevue has
been going on all winter with very satisfactory results. The Alliance
River section has not had the attention paid to it as the Kitsault, but
there is no doubt that this summer will be one of prosperity for the
Alliance, and with the opening up of the Dolly Varden, which may be
very shortly, Alice Ann will command the attention of the mining
world.
Prosperity for Anyox
With the price of copper getting close to 14 cents again, the citizens of
Anyox are beginning to be a little more cheerful and when it does go to
14 cents they will have cause to be jubilant, for it will mean twenty-
five cents per day increase in wages, and twenty-five cents per day
helps considerable to buy the children's shoes, ice cream, etc. The
management will be no less pleased than the employees, as they have
had a hard up-hill struggle for the past year, and the silver lining is
beginning to appear on the dark cloud of low price copper. The
Company's operations for the past year will show a deficit, and it is to
be hoped that from now on conditions will improve, as no company can
run indefinitely at a loss. It is almost certain that copper will continue
to slowly rise and if it does it will benefit the Granby Co. and the
employees, also the district and the Province in which we live.
Extract from the annual report of the Hon. J. W. deB. Farris
Minister of Labour, for the year ending, December 31st, 1020—A large
amount of valuable information has been collected in the statistical
section of the department on the general position of labor in the
province. This is based upon figures supplied direct to the Department
of Labor by 1,869 companies and firms employing industrial workers.
Taking all industries together, the average wage for all adult industrial
male workers in the province, as computed from last year's returns, is
$31.51 per week, which is an advance of $2.40 per week as compared
with 1918-19, and of $3.54 per week as compared with the first seven
months of 1918.

in a win for Eoscoe by' a close

are now tied for lirst place in the
June Handicap Tournament. Mrs.
Munroe, Campbell, Conway and

New Superintendent
At Cassidy Mine
a
R. R. Wilson, superintendent and
resident manager of the Granby
Consolidated Mining, Smelting &
Power Co's Collieries at Cassidy
Vancouver Island, for the past two
and a half years, resigned on June
1st. The duties of his office will
be assumed by Charles Campbell,
one of the company's well-known
officials; who was for twenty-one
years superintendent ,and resident
manager at Phoenix, where operations ceased some time ago. Mr.
Wilson is a son of W. R. Wilson,
president and general manager of
the Crows Nest Pass Coal Company.
He took charge at Cassidy before
the industry was on its feet, completed the construction started by
the Taylor Engineering Company,
of Vancouver, and built up an
efficient and smooth-running organization that carried production
from 100 tons a day in 1919 to
1200 tons a day in 1920, This was
done in a virgin Held and without
extraction of pillar coal. It is now
authoritatively stated that it now
is possible, should trade conditions
warrant it, to increase the daily
oiitput to 1500 tons without difficulty.
Gold Mining on Queen
Charlotte Islands
Shuttle Island, a small member
of the Queen Charlotte Group, is
witnessing some gold mine devel-
opement that may become important.   Gold was discovered on the
beach in 1918 by workmen engaged
in getting out spruce for airplane
construction. The Ellen Group
Gold Mining Company is operating
on one small vein, five inches wide,
assaying from $1100 to over $1400
in free milling gold. Another vein
8 inches wide, has been located in
a quart!! ledge, the returns from
which are fully as high. Some fine
nuggets are also found on the beach.
To Test Texeda Island Ore
Twenty tons of iron ore are being
shipped from the Lake Hill Mine of
the Puget Sound Company's group
On the west coast of Texeda Island
for a test run in the electric furnaces of the firm of Thomas Sum-
mersons & Sons, Limited-, Darlington, England.
The British Parliament
The Membership of the British
House of Lords, is 692 members,
with sixteen Scottish and twenty

seven Irish, who are not hereditary
members, but are elected by peers
of their own country. The House
of Commons consists of 670 members, 461 for England, thirty-four
for Wales, seventy-two for Scotland
and 103 for Ireland—one for every
70,000 people of Great Britain and
one for every 43,000 of Ireland.

ALICE   ARM   AND   ANYOX   HERALD,   Alice Arm,   Saturday, June 11th., 1921
The Man around Town
Continued from page I.
The Snieltnr and the Minn locked
horns on Wednesday evening. The
smelter losing by a narrow margin.
The only veal excitement of the evening
wan when "Babe" Chapman was carried oil! the fluid in a wheelbarrow for
during to root for the smelter,
contrary to the wishes of King Cray
and a few til' his satellites, who were
upholding the mine tram. However,.
Harry had the courage of his convictions and kept on rooting for the good
old sineltep, even against such an aggregation as lit! was up aaainst that
night.
Dance Held at
Camp Eight
The residents of camp eight were
the hosts and hostesses to a party
of about forty citizens of Alice Arm
who gladly accepted their kind
invitation to attend a .supper and
dance held at the camp on Friday,
June 3rd, the King's Birthday.
The visitors left the Artn during
the afternoon, and were conveyed
to their destination via the Hand
Car route, which to many proved a
novel means of transportation.
Without doubt, the Kitsault is a
"high grade" proposition, as the
numerous blisters, sore arms, and
moist brows- of the pumpers gave.
ample proof. However, the sumptuous repast that awaited them
upon their arrival, proved worthy
of the effort and a wonderful
reviver of drooping spirits and aching limbs.
After supper the evening was
spent in dancing at "Dinty Moore's"
and a dainty luncheon at one
o'clock was thoroughly enjoyed by
"all. An impromtu concert from
then until daylight appeared provided a cheery form of entertainment.
Leaving at three in the morning
the visitors were quickly conyeyed
to their homes; the laws of gravity
spurning the feeble assistance of
human effort in regard to propelling the cars.
The hospitality of the residents
of camp eight is well known
throughout the district, and it was'
surpassed upon the present occasion.
Everyone who was present was
loud in their praise of the good
time extended to them.
Everyone was real tired after the
thirty-six mile hand oar joy-ride,
and lucky wore those that could
spare the time for a few hours
sleep.

Who are the Sneak Thieves?
Sneak thieves have been busy
plying their dirty trade in Alice
Arm of late. .Last Monday night
a chicken house was broken into,
and some fine chickens stolen,
while not very long ago a oonsider-
quantity of gasoline was stolen
from a gas boat,, the'floor being
smashed in to obtain it. Other
petty thieving cases have been
going on for some time, and. it is
the duty of any citizen who has
any reliable information that will
lead to the arrest of the parasites
to disclose it to the police. It is
the dirtiest, lowest kind of theiving
and should be stopped.

Work on the Alliance trail will
start in a few days, from 12 to 15
men will be employed, and work
will consist of general repair work
on the trail already built.
Work on the Kitsault River
wing dam finished some time ago.
It has been considerably strengthened this spring, and will, we hope
be strong enough to turn aside
the high water of the Kitsault
River during the fall rains, and
save the town from being washed
out.
A heavier cable is being installed
on the cage ferry across the
Kitsault .River, and when it is
finished the ferry will be first-class
in every respect. It has been built
in such a way that it can with very
little expense be converted into a
bridge for pedestrians or pack
horses.
