the ladies who kindly donated
towards the   refreshments.
Footballers Will Play Game
for Benefit of Brass Band
One of the most public spirited organizations existing in Anyox to-
' day is the Brass Band, who, under
the leadership of J. J. H. Varnes has
attained a high degree of efficiency.
They frequently give their services
freely and willingly at any public
gathering. They are always ready
to oblige without thought of
recompense.
They have enlivened the baseball
and football games several  times
this season with their heart stirring
music, and the Football Association
have   decided  to hold  an    international  football  game—England
vs.  Scotland—for their benefit, on
Friday June 25.     Admission   to
I this star game will be only 25c.

Melodians' Orchestra at
Alice Arm Delight With
WorlaVs Hit
The Melodians' orchestra of
Anyox Mine created a sensation at
the Alice Arm Hotel on Saturday
evening, by their masterly presen
tation of "Valencia," the greatest
dance hit in recent years.
Played prior to the supper intermission as a two-step, the number
by special request was repeated as
a fox trot.
"Valencia" is a type of fox trot
new to most dancers, and originally was the furor of Paris, later
coming to London, and was
featured in a musical play at the
Gaiety theatre. The piece was
heard by Paul Whiteman, who
adapted the melody for the modern
American two-step. Whiteman is
now featuring the number at the
Kit-Kat Club, London.
Thus the dancers at the Alice
Arm Hotel on Saturday were
probably enjoyiRg the melody
simultaneously with ther friends in
the Old Laud.
A large nuinboi of Anyox people
took advantage or the prevailing
beautiful weather ind were present
at the dance, and included in the
gathering were aj^.rge number of
Alice Arm people.
The Hotel presented a gay and
animated scene, the ground floor
being thronged with visitors, while
others enjoyed the oool sweet evening air on the spacious veranda.
The orchestra were allowed no
rest, and their splendid rendering
of the various numbers won the
admiration of all.
The supper, provided by Mrs.
Evindson of the hotel, was dainty
and appetising. Altogether it was
iv jolly evening, with everyone
enjoying every minute.
A number of officers of the Mine
Club were present, and plans are
already maturing for a return
visit before many moons have
passed.
A number of the visitors prolonged tlieir visit until Sunday
evening, enjoying the scenic
beauties of the town and adjacent
countryside.

Anyox Baseball Teams
Becoming More Evenly
Matched
The Miners came away with
their fourth straight win on Thursday evening last week when they
shut out the rejuvenated Elks, one
to nothing. Tlie Antlered Herd
produced a new twirler in the person of "Frenchy" Smith of Montre
al, who pitched air tight ball al
the way, allowing only two safe
bits and fielded bis position in '•'
style. Two miscues on the hot
corner gave the winners the lone
tally in the fourth frame. Bobby
Orr was also in great form on the
mound for the Miners, allowing
only five scattered blows and whiffing seven. Halverson's work in
centre was the feature of the game.

The good old summer time is
with us again, and the hot weather
periods of the next three months
will parch our forests and add to
the fire hazard. Anyox and Alice
Arm are both in great danger of
.being wiped out during a protracted dry period of weather. But
for the heroic work of its citizens
Anyox would have been consumed
three years ago, and previous to
that date numerous bush fires have
endangered the town. The fire
danger around Alice Arm. owing
to the dying of the big timber,
becomes greater each year, and if
a fire swept the hillside and flats,
the town would certainly be destroyed. In view of the seriousness of a comflagation everyone
should be extremely careful with
fire either in the woods or out during the summer months. Be
careful to see that your matches,
cigarettes, or cigars are extinguished
before you throw them away. If
you observe a fire in its incipient
stages either extinguish it or report
it at once. Statistics show that
there were 2,521 forest fires in the
province last year, and that 90 per
cent, of these fires were man made
or in other words, due to carelessness, and the total amount of timber and property destroyed was
valued at $2,747,190.
Everyone Possible Will
Attend Nelson Mining
Convention
At the meeting   of   the   Alice
Arm branch of the B. C. Chamber
Every mining man whoean reach
Nelson, B. C. on July 4 or 5, should
make it a point to attend the miners' and prospectors' convention.
The Association Boards of Trade
of Eastern British Columbia Pros'
pectors' association and the chain
ber of mines at Nelson have united
to assure making the convention a
big and important gathering.
July 5 will be devoted to the
American visitors, many of whom
will arrive the day before. The
convention will last through July
7 and will be concluded with a
boat ride on Kootenay lake to the
Bluebell mine at Riondell, which
will be inspected.
Tht Nelson mining men areloyal
hosts, and no visitor from either
side of the border will attend the
Nelson sessions without feeling well
repaid for his time and trouble.
In view of the British capital that
is coming into the Kootenies, Mining Truth desires to impress upon
its American readers the importance of being well represented at
Nelson on July 5 to 7.—Spokane
Mining Truth.
of Mines to be held next Monday
one of the chief points under discussion will be whether the local
branch shall again send an exhibit
to the Vancouver exhibition, which
will later be transferred to the
Chamber of Mines building as a
permanent exhibit. If an exhibit
is to be sent now is the time to
start gathering. If everyone who
visits his property this summer
would bring in a fairly large sample
we could send a collection that
would win us first prize, and
attract attention to the camp.

.New Smelting Process
for Ladysmith Smelter
Herbert Carmichael, formerly
provincial government assayer,
unde;- the Department of Mines of
British Columbia left Victoria this
week for Denver Col:, whore he will
make a personal inspection of a
plant which is being installed
there under a new metallurgical
process for the separation of lead
zino and copper in mixed ores.
Mr. Carmichael reoently acquired
the Ladysmith smelter, which has
been idle for some years and has in
contemplation the using of this
plant by the installation of a similar process to that being installed
at Denver. The latter plant will
have a capacity of one hundred
tons a day, and is nearing completion.
The putting into operation of
such a plant in this province will
mean much to the mine operators
who are now being penalized at
the existing smelters for the treat-
• ment of these mixed ores. There
are instances where ore carrying
values of $50 a ton in which zinc
and lead appeared in proportions
that made the cost of treatment at
the existing smelters about   $24 a
ton.
A number of operators on the
coast are awaiting the expected
opening of   the   new   process   at
| Ladysmith as a means of solving
some of their troubles in the treatment of ore. The visit of Mr. Carmichael to Denver is expected to
have an important bearing on the
proposition.   Following his return
i it is anticipated he will be in a
position  to decide just what his
, plans in connection with the Lady-
' smith works will be.
Ah, Men.
: Many a wicked line she typed
j Until the boss's heart she swiped;
I But after the martial march  was
piped
I Many a dirty dish she wiped.
Added Attractions this Year
for Prince Rupert Fair
The Prince Rupert Fair this year
promises to be bigger and better in
every respect, and already plans
are being made towards this end.
A monster exhibit from New Westminster Fair will be displayed.
An eight piece orchestra from Vancouver has been engaged, and Vio
Foley, well known Vancouver
pugilist will meet Jackie Newman
of Edmonton in Prince Rupert during Fair week. Those visiting the
terminal city during Fair week
will (ind lots to do sightseeing and
enjoying the festivities.
Timber Industry of Province
Is Expanding
Less than two per cent of the
annual timber of the Province was
exported from British Columbia
last year in the form of raw logs.
Last year's log export was less than
that of the previous year, and
formed a neglible factor in the
United States' lumber industry.
The total timber cut in the Province last year was over 2,500,000,-
000 feet. Authority for export
was given for some 46,000,000
feet. Some 150,000,000 feet was
exported from Crown granted lands
over which the government has
no control.
Great Britain Canada's Best
Customer
United Kingdom purchases from
Canada during the twelve months
ended in February totalled $502,-
000,000. This was $109,000,000
more than the United Kingdom
purchased in the previous twelve
months from Canada, and $29,000-
000 more than purchased in Canada
by the United States.
On the other hand, Canada
bought from the United States in
the 12 months goods to the value
of $597,000,000 as against imports
from the United Kingdom valued
at $162,000,000.

Lode mining has only been in progress for about 25 years, and only about one-half of the Province has
been even prospected; 200,000 square miles of unexplored mineral bearing land are open for prospecting.
The Mining Laws of this Province are more liberal and the fees lower than those of any other Province
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 consideriup
mining investments should refer to such reports. They are available without charge on application
to the Department of Mines, Victoria, 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.
