Anyox Ladies Put Up
Wonderful Ball Game
Big Crowd and Lots of Fun
Taking advantage of the fair
weather on Saturday night, the
baseball game between the Married
and Single ladies was fought out.
The game was a ding dong affair
all the way through, the Single
girls romped home winners by tlie
close score of twelve runs to ten.
Many brilliant plays were made
by both teams. The single girls
having a slight edge in tho fielding
while the married ladies had the
advantage with the bat. Both
pitchers were in excellent form,
each retiring six via the strike-out
route. The batteries were; Singles,
McMillan and Rashleigh, Married;
McTaggart aud Dwyer. W. Olsen
umpired in his usual high class
manner, and all the girls will
agree that pie is a real nice man
for donating his services to the
sport.
Considering the inclemency of
the weather and the short notice on
which the game was staged it was
a huge success financially. One
hundred dollars was collected at
n$he gate, which sum will be turned
over to the Union Church.
Everyone is clamoring for a
return match, which if staged,
should be a greater success than
the first.
The  teams lined up as follows:
Single Ladies:Miss Rashleigh, c;
Miss McMillan, p.; Miss Moffatt,
lb.; Miss Calderone, 2b.; Miss
Keith, s.s.; Miss J. Moffatt, 3b.;
Miss Scott, l.f.; Miss Datillio, c.f.:
Miss Cane, r.f.
Married Ladies: Mrs. Dwyer,
o.; Mrs. McTaggart, p.; Mrs. Jeff,
lb.; Mrs. Cody, 2b.; Mrs. McQuarrie, s.s.; Mrs. Henderson,
3b.; Mrs. Campbell, l.f.; Mrs. Gray,
c.f.; Mrs. Ferguson, r.f.
Big Quantity of Metals
Smelted at Anyox
As is well-known, the Granby
Co. are the largest copper prodiio-
ors in Canada. Last year they
produced at Anyox more copper
than the rest of British Columbia
combined.
The first furnace was "blown in"
at Anyox, on Maroh 17th, 1914.
Prom that date the Anyox plant
has produced the stupendous total
of 256,431,744 pounds of copper;
3,041,004 ounces of silver, and
59,197 ounces of gold.
Last year was the biggest year
in the history of the company, with
the exception of 1921. With the
operation this year, of the new concentrating mill, production should
exceed any previous year, and next
year, when the concentrator is
operated to capacity for the full
twelve months, the total will be
veu larger.
Dance Held at Alice
Arm
On Monday evening, August
18, an impromptu dance was held
in the Coliseum which was largely
attended, and greatly enjoyed by
all.
Dainty refreshments were served
during the evening, and dancing
was carried on until 1 a.m.
The snappy orchestra, consisting
of Mrs. T. W. Falconer, piano;
Mrs. J. Laidlaw, saxophone; Mr.
Chas. Hutohinson, clarinet; and
Lome Falconer, violin; excelled
themselves. They were relieved
for several numbers by Mrs. W.
O'Neill, Miss. V. Riel and Mr.
J. Houston.
Carnival Queen
Nominated at Anyox
Tlie Anyox candidate for Carnival Queen of the Prince Rupert
exhibition is Miss Dodd, and it is
up to Anyox to see that she is
elected. Iii former years, Prince
Rupert has carried off the honors
by a small margin, but this year
the campaign committee have decided that the smelter town is
going to have the honor of electing
the Queen. The first prize is a
trip to the Empire Exhibition at
Wembley, England, so don't forget to buy a ticket. In buying a
ticket you are helping along the
exhibition, whose chief aim is the
boosting of the north, of which we
are a part.
Construction of Alice Arm
Float
The lumber for construction of
the new government float at the
wharf, arrived on Monday. Mr.
Currie of Prince Rupert has secured the contract, and it is expected
that work will be shortly commenced, and another long-felt want
will be filled.
Anyox Man Comes Overland
Terrace to Alice Arm
Mr. Ed. Ashton, of Anyox arriv-
fd at Alice Arm yesterday, after a
trip overland froni Terrace. - He
left Anyox some time ago, and
proceeded to Terrace, and from
there he commenced his prospecting
trip, that finally brought him
through to the head of the Arm.
He reports rough travelling between the Naas River and Alice
Arm, but was well pleased with
his trip. He intends to prospect
in the vicinity of Alice Arm for a
short time. Mr. Ashton spent a
few weeks here last summer.
Trail Rangers Return
To Anyox <
Rev. J. Herdman aocompanied
by his troop of trail rangers, returned on the Cardena Monday,
after putting in two very enjoyable weeks at Port Simpson.
They found Port Simpson an
ideal spot for camping. During
their visit, a social was given by
the members of the hospital staff
to the adult members of the camp,
and the boys entertained a number
of the local young folks to a beach
party.
Rich Ore From Basin
Mr. Angus McLeod arrived in
town during the week from the
Basin property near the Kitsault
Glacier. He has uncovered an 18-
ft. ledge of ore. and brought down
some fine samples of grey copper
ore, which are probably the finest
samples of grey copper ever
brought to town. They will be
shipped to the Prince Rupert exhibition.
Summit Being Developed
Mr. A. Davidson is busy developing the Summit property, in the
upper Kitsault country. He has
driven a tunnel 15 feet in length,
and is now surface stripping an
ore ledge which he has lately discovered. Some good ore samples
were brought to town by Mr.
Davidson during the week, and he
expects to locate a considerable
tonnage of ore on the property before the snow flies.'
Alice Arm Orl For Rupert
A number of samples from Alice
Arm will be sent to the Prince
Rupert exhibition on Monday next.
While the shipment could have
been much larger, the amount
going  forward   will give outside
Rich Ore Strike Near
Dolly Varden Railway
What is probably thelnost important ore strike made iu the
Alice Arm district this year, was
made during the week on the Midnight group, near West Creek, by
Mr. Tony Surbich. BT*
It was while doing assessment
work that Mr. Surbich was
fortunate enough to strike a 2-ft.
ledge of high grade ore. Samples
were immediately sent out for
assaying, and these gave returns of
12 per cent copper, 8.3 ozs. silver
and 0.02 gold per ton. The property was only acquired last year
and this is tlie first work done on
it by the owner.
The most interesting part of the
strike is that it was made only
four feet from the Dolly Varden
railway tracks, so that transportation problems are nil.
It is tlie intention of Mr. Surbich
to drive a tunnel 100 feet in length
on tlie ledge, and if the tunnel is
successful lie will, in all probability
work the property himself. Living quarters and a blacksmith
shop will also be built. The work
to start immediately.

wealth of the district..

Each year more mineral wealth
the Alice Arm district is
brought to light, new ore ledges
are discovered, and work done on
old ledges have proved that richer
and larger bodies of ore exist than
was previously anticipated. Mining property owners throughout the
whole district have unshaken faith
in the possibilities of the camp,
and are ready to stay with it until
Alice Arm receives its right recognition. The development of
the camp on a large scale can not
be long delayed. Already several
small companies are developing
properties, that may ultimately develop into one of the big producers
of the near future. Unbounded
optimism and hard work, have
put a lot of mining camps on the
map. We have the ore and
optimism, and are doing the work,
the fruits of which will not long
be denied us.
Uniforms For Provincial
Police
Material for uniforms in which
Provincial Police officers are to be
clothed lias been purchased, and
will be ready for tailoring soon.
Some officers, it is expected, will
be in uniform by the end of the
year. The attorney-general's department, which directs the police
force, plans to put tlie police into
uniform gradually so as to avoid
any large expenditures at one time.

Mill This Fall For
Riverside Property
Portland Canal News
Within the neighborhood of a
mile of underground work done
and a large tonnage of good milling ore blocked out, the owners
of the Riverside mine at Seven-
mile, on the Salmon valley road,
are now preparing to realize on
their investment of many thousands of dollars spent in developing thisy property. A complete
concentrating plant of 60 tons
daily capacity has been ordered
and should arrive on the Curacao
about the end of this week. Otto
Trojanowski, who built the Premier mill, has arrived to construct
the Riverside plant. The work
will be rushed, and barring unfor-
seen delays the mill should be
ready to turn over about the 1st
of October.
Stewart Properties
Shipping Ore
In addition to the regular car
go of Premier high grade ore, the
big freighter Mogul last Monday
took out 45 tons of B. C. Silver
ore estimated at $120 per ton, and
30 tons of Porter-Idaho estimated
at $200 per ton. Clearing earlier
than was expected, the ship did
not take all the ore from the dock.
Carbon Black Plant For
River
Peace
The first carbon black plant in Canada will bo installed, it is stated, at
Peace River, by the Canadian Petroleums Limited, which company plans
to utilize the great deposits of gas in
that district. About 100 men will be
employed at the commencement of
operations, if the present plans are
carried out.
"What is an angel, mother?" asked
a six-year-old.
"Why, my dear, an angel is a beautiful lady with wings who flies. But
why do you ask?"
'Because T heard father call my
governess an angel," replied the little
boy.
'Oh," said the mother. "Well dear
you watch, and you will see her fly
tomorrow.

Smelter Footballers Win Two
Games
In a League fixture on Friday evening, the Smelter footballers defeated
the Beach eleven by the score of five
goals to four. The Beach are showing
vastly improved form and should have
won Friday's game. The forwards
passed up many opportunities to shoot*
the biggest fault seeming to be in trying to work the ball too close to the
goal.
Craggs scored twice for the Bench,
and Fitzpatrick and Taylor got one
each. Robinson notched three for the
winners and Twaddle one. The winners fifth goal was scored by the
Beach full back, when he drove the
ball through his own goal in an
attempt to clear the ball.
Ted Simpson refereed to the satis-
faction of all.
On Sunday evening, the Smelter
turned in another win, this time at
the expense of the Mine. The score
was two to one. Bay Ingraham scored both goals for the winners.
