Meeting of Community
League Council
Inportant Matters Discussed
League to Publish Weekly
Bulletin
Wednesday night's meeting of
the Community League Couifeil
was held in the M]ine Hall, at the
usual hour, with President Willis-
oroft in the chair. Councillors
attending were Mrs. McKay, and
Messrs. Warwick, Buzelle,' Armour,
and Murdoch.
A fiitanoial statement covering
the present condition , of the
League's affairs, with a number of
League employees, their hours and
rates of wages was submitted by
the secretary, Discussion on the
whole situation was deferred until
next week.
President Williscroft as chairman of the Ways and Means
Committee, reported progress in a
new effort to create interest in the
work of the League and enable it
to function in a wider field of
Community endeavour than has
hitherto been attempted. He, told
of an interview with the officials of
the Granby Co.—Messrs. Munroe,
Bancroft and Wing—in which
these gentlemen consented to divert
the publication of the monthly
organ of the company; the Granby
News, to the League, and have it
published on a smaller scale as a
weekly bulletin. This bulletin
would be, as Mr. Williscroft exr
plained, a medium of expression
between the Council and the members of the community as a whole,
in other words, to make an endeav-
ir to foster true community
spirit. Such a medium jvould
undoubtedly be of advantage and
possibly achieve considerable
success.
The question of transportation
between the Mine and the Beach
asajain gone into, while nothing Irennite was deoided the
possibility of relieving the situation
if even in a small degree, was
considered.
Mr. Armour thought that the
present system in vogue in connection with the posting of the minutes
should be altered, and that
although they were not approved,
they should be posted as soon after
the meeting as ppssiblei under the
"heading of League business, and
come up for approval at the next
meeting in regular order.
The question of paying an umpire
for handling the League games
was-disoussed, and Mr. Murdooh
suggested as this was the common
praotioe elsewhere, that in order to
get snappy results this should be
done in connection with the Anyox
Baseball League, and that the fans
would appreciate having it; There
would be some responsibility then
jn getting the games started on
time.
The question of arranging for

The Alice Arm Citizens'
Association is Now
Organized
A meeting of the citizens of Alioe
Arm was held on Tuesday, May 9,
for the purpose of re-organizing the
Commercial Club or of forming a
new association. Mr. D. 8. Cameron was elected Chairman, whioh
position he filled in a very able
manner, and he oalled upon Mr. T.
W. Falconer, who was secretary of
the meeting held some time ago, to
read the minutes of the last meeting.. The minutes were read and
adopted by the meeting. The
Chairmau then oalled upon Mr. M.
D. Ross—who was one of the committee formed for the drafting of
new by-laws—to read the by-laws.
Mr. Ross read the by-laws, in
which it said that the organization
should be called the Alice Arm
Citizens' Association. The by-laws
were adopted by the meeting without any changes.
The election of officers was then
held and the following officers were
elected:
Hon. President, H. F. Kergin,
M.L.A.
President—D. Si Cameron.
Vice-President—A. Falconer.
Secretary-Treasurer—T. W. Falconer.
Executive Committee—G. W.
Bruggy. C. P. Riel, M. D. Ross.
After the election of officers a
recess of ten minutes was called by
the Chairman in order to give all
those present an opportunity to
become members of the Association
and twenty-two members were
enrolled.
Under the order of General
Business, Mr. Ross read a letter
that had been drawn up regarding
the completion of the trail from
Alice Arm to the Naas Valley, and
it was decided after the reading of
the letter to send aN copy to the
heads of the different government
departments at Victoria and Prince
Rupert and also to H. F. Kergin,
local member of the legislature.
This action , received the hearty
support of the meeting, and immediate results are expected.
The question of the non-operation
of the Dolly Varden. Railway was"
brought up by Mr. Peterson, who
thought that something should be
done by the government to repair
the railway, if the Dolly Varden
fails to operate. Mr. Geo. Young
informed- the meeting that he
understood Mr. Kergin was taking
the matter up with the government
and in view of this fact, and also
the present litigation which is
going" on in the courts, it was
thought best to wait until the next
meeting before any aotion was
taken.
The secretary of the Association
wishes to draw the attention of the
people of Alice Arm who have not
already joined the Association, that
the membership fee is only one

Coke Plant. Mr. Evans, chief
engineer at the plant made the
presentation with an appropriate
speech. , .
Mr. Holmes replied, thanking
the men for the presentation and
also to their loyal support to him
while he was superintendent of the
plant, for without their co-operation his success could not have
been attained. He' said that he
was going to continue in the coke
oven business, and if any of them
were to do the same, they would
no doubt meet again, and he
would always be pleased to meet
any of the men from Anyox.

money for thejjenefit of everyone.
Serious Fire at Anyox
Residence of Mr. and Mrs.
Geo. Moffatt Gutted
On Saturday night, at 9.30,
Anyox was startled by the sound
of the fire alarm, which was instantly responded to by the fire
department, augmented by a host
of volunteers. The scene of the
conflagation was the home of Mr.
and Mrs. Geo. Moffatt and family.
All the members of the family
had gone out early in the evening
with the exception of 12 year old
Robert, who was left to look after
the baby. Fortunately he had
taken the baby out for a walk and
was about 100 yards from the
house when he1 noticed smoke
issuing from the upstairs windows.
The fire must have started in the
lower part of the house and
smouldered for some time' before
bursting out with a good hold on
the beaver board, which burned
furiously, gutting the interior and
contents completely.
The family are left with only the
clothes they were wearing at the
time. It all happened so suddenly,
ibeing^all over in half an hour that
there was no time to save anything
The Moffatt family-, receive the
sympathy of everyone in their
misfortune, and at the same time
they rejoice in the fact that Robert
and the baby were out when■• the
devouring element started operations.
They are at present in temporary quarters with Mrs. 'Rashleigh,
at the Club House.
Well Known Couple of
Anyox Married
Robert Ferguson—Jean Frost
The home of Mr. and Mrs. J.
Wilson was the scene of a pretty
wedding, on Sunday, May 7, at
9.30, when Miss Jean Frost was
united in marriage to Mr. Robert
Ferguson, both of Anyox Mine.
The bridesmaid was Miss Hannah Wilson, and the groomsman,
Mr. Thos. Gilmour. The bride
was given away by her brother,
Thos. Frost. The Rev. J. Herd-
man, of the Union Church was
the officiating clergyman.
' The house was beautifully decorated for the occasion, the ceremony
taking place under a large silver
bell. The young couple are very
popular at the Mine, as was
evidenced by the large number of
guests that were present, of which
there were over thirty,
The happy oouple left on the
Oheloshin on Monday, en route for
Edmonton, Alberta, where they
will spend thei?- honeymoon. A
large number of friends were at
the wharf and gave them a hearty
send-off. On their return they
will reside at the mine.
The bride is a native of Aberdeen
arid, the bridegroom, of Beith,
Ayrshire, Scotland.
Black Diamond at
Alice Arm Showing
Good Ore
Jack Hauber came down from
the Black Diamond Group this
week and states that the property
is looking better than ever. He also
brought down some fine specimens
of high grade sulphide silver ore.
Since he was down about a
month ago he has drifted five feet
along the foot-wall band of lead
No. 1, and the width of the vein
increases with depth, having
widened from 1 foot to 2 feet in a
distance of five feet.
Five feet of drifting was also
done on lead No. 2, the thickness of
this lead remain's the same. The
andesite band between the two
leads shows a decrease in thickness,
and will apparently disappear,
merging both veins into one.
Both veins are at present depth
still broken, and consequently badly leached. Mr. Hauber is confident
that in ten or twenty feet of
further drifting he will be in solid
formation. The mineralization of
the ore remains the same, consisting of iron, a little copper and the
highest, grade of silver sulphides.

Alice Arm
Citizens' Association.
Alice Arm now possesses in the
"Alice Arm Citizens' Association"
an organization capable of handling the affairs of the town and
looking after the interests of the
district generally. A wise selection of officers has been made and
it is the duty of every person who
has any interests whatever in the
district to support them at all
times. The organization has gone
off with a good start, and has
already commenced business. In
order to keep the Association
alive it must have the support of
the people. Citizens of Alice
Arm attend the meetings of the
Association; take part in the debates; support any scheme that
will benefit the district. Don't
leave all the work to a few and
then grumble because nothing gets
done. Those who have not yet
joined, join now, and let's make
and keep the Alice Arm Citizens'
Association 100 per cent, efficient
all the time. The future of the
Association lies entirely with the
people of the town; by supporting
it you have everything to gain and
absolutely nothing to lose.
WATERFRONT QOSSIP
IN ANYOX
A new boat which will grace the
harbor this year is now nearing
completion. Alex. Roberts is the
builder and owner.
Boat owners who are overhauling their boats and have the
engines in different stages of assembly, are: Phil McFarland, Paul
Stivenard, and Capt. Lawrence,
of the telpgraph service. The
latter is the great life saver. He
used to tow in a string of lame
ducks on almost every occasion he
went out last year.
C. Clay is out regularly these
days bringing in a good catch of
fish when he feels like it.
Bert Bowles does a little fishing
too. He uses the Armstrong
engine.
Mr. Moran believes in real
pleasure. He sails under canvas
and has no engine troubles or
blisters.
W. F. Eve has finished overhauling his boat and she is now
running like a clock.
Naas Valley Notes
Messrs.- D. Jackson and A.
Wynes have returned from a trip
up the Skeena River. They report
that Terrace is booming but in
their opinion there is place in the
Skeena Valley equal to the Naas.
Owing to the cold spring, the
Naas River did not rise high
enough to permit gas boats to
travel on it until the last week in
April.
Messrs.. Hoeft and Vetter are
doing a lot of fencing on their
farms.
The Provincial Government Forestry survey party is expected in
the valley about May 13. They
will bring in 8 horses for packing
purposes.
AH the residents of the valley
are anxiously awaiting the completion of the trail to Alice Arm,
so that it lyjll be available this
fah\
A Dominion Government geological survey party will visit the
valley this summer.
Mr. J. M. Taylor, of Ocean Falls
is on his way to the valley to look
over the timber limits with a view
of commencing logging operations
this summer.       >
J. Pottle and C. H. Homer,
provincial assessor, came up the
river on Saturday. The former is
in the valley for an indefinite, stay.
Dennys Jackson and George
Wohlschlegel left on Sunday for
Terrace to bring in the horses for
the Forestry Survey party.
J. C. Studdy, government telegraph operator, left on Friday,
for a month's visit to Prince
Rupert.   Alfred Wynes is relieving
him. ■■»
Mrs. O. Thorne, of the Mission
House who was threatened with
pnemonia, is slowly recovering.
Everyone is now busy preparing
the ground for seeding and also
planting garden.
ES AQUI V0LVER
Even if w.e desired it, we could
not expect everybody to buy Mrs.
Pound's home-made jams and marmalades; yet: for eight years she
has been striving to make the
finest products, with the strictest
attention to every detail. During
this period a favorable public
opinion has been created by the
quality, of her lines and at this time
of the year her stock is unusually
low.
At present we offer you her
Raspberry Jam. Why.? Well, one
reason is, she uses in all her products fruits of the finest quality
and always maintains that fresh
fruit flavor so often sought for.
Mrs. Pound takes pride in her
different kinds of Marmalades.
Should your, taste call for something tart, try a "can of her Seville
Orange; if yon prefer the really
sweet kind, we have Her pineapple
Marmalade, or sit down to a dish
of her Orange or Grape-fruit Marmalades, your particular taste can
be satisfied.
On your next trip to Vancouver,
visit the factory and see for yourself the care that is taken in the
selection of the fruits that are used
to produce that home-made flavor
that reminds you so much of
Mother's canning.
Another shipment is now on our
shelves and we anxiously wait the
coming season when we will offer
you a full line of Mrs. Pound's
Home-Made Jams, Jellies and
Marmalades.

charges to the soccer and baseball
games was discussed, also the
methods of collecting the money.
It was finally left to the Ways and
Means Committee to solute.
A drain on the Children's playground oaused Mrs. MoKay to ask
if it were not possible to have this
remedied immediately. Aotion
was promised at once.
Mr. Warwick asked that twenty^
five or thirty dollars a month be
set aside for new books for the
Library. The Chair informed him
that the Ways and Means Committee were working out a plan
whereby something along the lines
of his request would be aohieved,
and that a meeting within the next
few days would be arranged and
go thoroughly into matters pertaining to the Library, at which he, as
Chairman of the Library Committee would be asked to attend.
Mr. Murdoch thought that the
present orchestra in the Recreation
Hall was inadequate in point of
numbers, and that a third man
should be secured. Mr. Buzelle
thought that instead of a third
man in the orchestra, it would be
much better to introduce some
singing talent in connection with
the picture shows. Action on this
suggestion was moved by Mr.
Armour and seconded " by Mr.
Murdoch to the effect that the
matter be arranged between the
Chairman of the Committee having control of this department and
the Manager of the Recreation
Hall.

Anyox Football
In a second practice match to
get a line on the different players,
for the purpose of getting three
evenly balanced teams in the race
for the Anyox football championship, teams representing, the Elks
and the Mine met on the Recreation
Grounds on the night of Tuesday,
May 9. The Elk's aggregation
won with a score of 3 goals to 1.
This does not at all represent the
play, the Mine being in the lead at
half time when the score was 1 to*
0 in favor of the diggers. In the
second half the Elks had -all the
breaks and finished on the long
end of the score. The ground was
heavy and the game not overly fast
J. Hart officiated and gave every
satisfaction as usual;. The players
lined up as follows, reflecting the
good judgement of the selection
committee in placing the boys so
evenly, and is a criterion of good
-sport when the pig-skin o'hasefs
get away to their schedule.
