Mining News of the District
Work at the Bellevue mine at
I present  consists of stripping the
(leads on the suface.   A first-class
I strike of ore has been made on the
I Blenheim claim, on the west side of
I the Illiance River.   The lead is 28
I feet wide, the ore being grey copper
I galena.   This is an entirely new
[strike, and warrants considerable
J development work.   There are also
I good showings on the east side of
| the river, consisting of 14 feet of
ore, the ore being similar to that
I found on the west side of the river.
As soon as the bad weather sets in,
i underground work will be done on
either one  of the showings, and
according to present plans work
will continue throughout the coming winter.
good gold values.
Work on the'Silver Star, on the
Illiance River, has been suspended
for this season by Messrs. A. J.
Bone and A. R. Hodgson. Work
will be resumed again next summer.
Operations for this summer have
also ceased on the Monarch.
Mr. A. W. McGuire, who has,
been working on the Silver Standard on the north-east fork of the
Kitsault River, has shown up a
large body of high grade ore.
Assays taken from the lead last
year gave 240 ozs. silver per ton.
Some high-grade ore samples
have been taken from. other properties on the north-east fork this
year, and most of the ore carries
A big showing of ore has recently been made at the Moose mine,
in the cross-out from the main
tunnel, the lead has been proven to
be 15 feet wide and the other wall
has pot yet been reached.
Considerable work has been done
at the Moose this summer and
further work will be undertaken
this fall, when it is expected that
the present showing of ore will be
considerably enlarged.
"A big ■ lead of first-class galena
ore has been uncovered by Charlie
Gustafson on the Queen Group,
between Trout and Clearwater
Creeks. The lead has been traced
on to the Noname, owned by Joe
Sexton, which property joins the
Last Chance. It has been traced
from the Noname to the Highlandr
er, owned by Pat Morley and Tom
McRostie. This is considered to be
one of the biggest bodies of ore in
the district, the lead in places
being 150 feet wide.
Shipping of ore frpm the Dolly
Varden Mine ceased two weeks
ago, and as yet no word has been
received regarding any development
work being done this year at the
mine. If the same amount of work
is done in future years ias has been
done this year the Dolly Varden
and Wolf mines will have the
longest lives of any mines known.

Impressions Gained by
Mr. Bert Kergin on his
Trip over the P. G. & E.
Mr. H. F. Kergin, who, returned
on Thursday, from the inspection
of the P. G. & E. Railroad, recently
made by members of the Provincial
Legislature, when interviewed by
the Herald, stated than in his
opinion the P. G. & E. was "the
greatest potlach the late McBride
and Bowser Government ever
staged. The whole situation from
start to finish is one of the saddest
things in the history of the
province. <
The Foley, Welch & Stewart Co.
in 1912, received Bond 'guarantees
up to $35,000 per mile, and mileage
was their aim. They had town-
sites of their own and they tried to
make them good by making detours
around existing towns.
For the first 150 miles from Vancouver, practically all the country
has to offer is scenery. Mr. Kergin
believes that the railroad should'be
diverted at Clinton and tied onto
the C. P. R. and C. N. R. at Ash-
croft, and that the *road" from
Clinton to Squamish be abandoned.
With the rails and ties taken up
it would make a good auto road.
We have to swallow a tremendous
loss and we may as well realize
that now.
The people were deceived by the
McBride and BOwser Government
and they know it now,-when it is
too late, we have fallen heir to a>
lemon, and should try to get out of
a bad mess the best we can. This
the present government is doing,
many re-locations have been made
and the road-bed improved, and
next year, the road no doubt will
be completed to Prince George,
connecting with the G. T. P., and
some time in the future will no
doubt be oarried on into the Peace
River country.
Should this be done, and the
road connected with Ashcroft at
the south, Mr. Kergin believes that
the time will come sooner than we
expect when this railroad will
operate on a paying basis, as the
road will then run ffir practically
its entire length through a productive country.
Mr. Kergin enjoyed the trip
immensely, and saw some fine country, but saw nothing that compared favorably with this district, not
even the scenery.
While in the south, Mr. Kergin
arranged to have this district pictured by the Government Educational Film Department, so that
the world will get a better idea of
the vast natural resources of the
district. Pictures will be taken of
the mining, fishing and logging
operations, showing the work being
actually done.
Sporting News of the District
ANYOX BASEBALL
The Elks and mine struggled for
the championship, on Thursday,
August 25th. Both sides played
excellent baseball, every man exerting himself for every ounce of
his energy. The mine got a lead
of five runs to the Elk's nil in the
first innings, the Elks getting one
run in each of the next three
innings, while Draudson who was
pitching a great game, held the
mine down to their five runs, but
in the fifth the mine got two runs
and the Elks none, the score standing then 7 to 3 in favor of the
mine. The sixth innings opened
with the Elks at bat and darkness
falling over the field, and we wondered how the players managed to1
see the ball at times, because the
spectators could only tell where
the ball was by the action of the
players. The Elks were hitting
them all over the lot by this time,
and scored two runs, two other
runners making for home, got into
a dispute with the umpire over his
decision arid" the umpire awarded
the game to the mine.
There was still one innings to
play and it was anybody's game,
so we await the results of a meeting of the League executive to
determine whether the baseball
League is finished or not.
ANYOX FOOTBALL
The Elks and mine teams played
a strenuous game on Sunday evening, resulting in a win for the
mine by 1 goal to nil, thus putting
the mine at the top of the League.
BASEBALL AT
ALICE ARM
Local Teams Straggle for the
Championship
1 Baseball and more Baseball was
handed out to the local fans last
Sunday afternoon when a double-
header was staged between two
teams picked from Camp Eight
and the Town boys. Better weather conditions prevailed than
during the previous game, and as
a result the games were more
snappy and void of comical complications.
Don Cameron on the mound for
the Town team was a mountain of
strength and had the opposing
players guessing and dodging
throughout the entire session.
Nothing got past him; not even a
red-hot Texas Leaguer which rebounded from his manly chest into
the catcher's hand from whence it
was easily relayed to first, putting
the runner out. Oatman, who
was supposed to play short-stop
insisted upon spearing everything
that came between first and third
base; also numerous outfield flies,
thereby engineering many double
plays which proved disastrous and
disheartening to the miners, shutting them out of many much needed runs. Bruggy behind the bat
was as tricky as ever, and his high
average in wielding the stick
proved a big surprise even -to himself. Jack Morrison's untimely
error caused this veteran outfielder
to, grind his molars muchly, but
bred in him the grim determination
to cling to the next offer, which he
did, thereby agreeably surprising
the numerous fans who anticipated
otherwise. \
A readjustment of Camp Eight's
lineup gave promise of a closely
contested game, but the breaks
went against them at the most
inopportune times, that which
might have meant a victory registered a defeat. Cy. Manning,
their youthful twiller pitched most
consistently, but must have left his
horse shoes at home, for luck was _
certainly not smiling on him on
Sunday. Milligan on the primary
sack dragged in everything possible and impossible and when Jack
went after a high one it was only
the laws of gravity and his running
shoes which brought him back to
earth.
The first game travelled the full
nine innings and ended with the
town team winners by a score of 5
to 1. Of the second attempt, "nuff
said." the score of 16 to 8 in favor
of the Town tells the tale, although
David Rowley for the mine scored
a homer and would have been
going yet had he not become dizzy
circling the bases. That's the stuff
to give them Dave.
Jimmy Campbell umpired most
satisfactorily, but of course came in
for the Ump's usual share of abuse,
but why worry, who could possibly
please both teams on a close decision.
Prince Rupert is claiming the
baseball championship of the north.
Anyox wants to know where they
got that stuff, because they licked
everything Prince Rupert sent up
there. Now Alice Arm wants to
know what the Anyoxites are getting fresh about, because they walloped Anyox every time they got
a chance to play them this year.

Anyox Sports.
The outdoor sports of Anyox
are rapidly drawing to a close, and
the Anyox Community League are
to be congratulated on the excellent programme that has been put
on during the summer and the able
manner in which it has been carried out. There have been sports
(or everyone; tennis, baseball and
football Leagues for the adults, and
also for the juniors; playgrounds
have been provided for the children and everything has been done
to stimulate interest in all out-door
sports, and to help break the
deadly monotony that is characteristic of an isolated mining camp.
That the efforts of the Community
League .have been appreciated by
the people, has been proven by the
attendance at all League games,
400 and 500 fans watching the
games being a common occurance,
while last year the best games
• would only draw a crowd of 50
or 60 spectators. Outside teams
have been brought in this year and
Anyox teams have journeyed outside and played games with the
neighbouring towns along the coast.
The neighbouring towns on the
coast have always regarded Anyox
as a place of work, a place where
everyone worked 365 days in the
year, where sport was dead, and
life was one continual round of eat,
work and sleep; but this year,
thanks to the untiring efforts of the
A. C. L. that impression has gone
and Anyox this year has stepped
out into the world of sport, and
talent was discovered that surprised
themselves, and certainly surprised
the visiting teams. The Community League can ring down the
curtain on summer sports, knowing
that they have accomplished something worth while, and that their
efforts have been appreciated by
practically everyone in Anyox.
It is hoped that as much will be
accomplished during the coming
winter as has been done this summer, a skating rink is badly needed
for the young bloods to work off
their superfluous energy in a hard
fought hocky match; anyone who
has any doubts about enough talent
being available to form a Hocky
League should have witnessed
some of the games played between
Alice Arm and Anyox lasf winter.
Skating  is a sport that can be
indulged in by both young and old,
of both sexes, and the ladies instead of playing tennis could repair
to the skating rink and enjoy the
exhiliration of rapidly whirling
through space. If the Community
League wants to provide good,
clean, healthful, in-expensive sport
for the citizens of Anyox this coming winter, a skating rink is the
only solution.
Anyox to Operate.
There is no doubt that the mine
and smelter at Anyox will continue
to operate during the coming winter. The vote taken being largely
in favor of continuing operations
at a reduced wage seale. The
management of the Granby Co.
are to be complimented on the
straightforward manner.in which
they put the matter up to their
employees. It was up to the
people of Anyox entirely, whether
they were willing to stay at Anyox
this next winter and operate the
plant or whether it should be clos
ed down and everyone take a
chance on procuring employment
on the outside. Luckily they decided to stay, and the big plant
will continue to operate as long as
it is possible to do so, which we
hope will be for a good many
years.
Portland Canal Ore
for Chicago
At a meeting of the Portland Canal
Mining Congress, held ut Hyder, it
was decided to send to Chicago an
exhibit of ores from the Portland
Canal district, including samples from
both sides of the line, "providing the
Alaskan committe appointed by Ex-
Govenor Biggs and Goveuor Bone
would allow ores from the B. C. side
to be grouped with those from the
American side. It is believed that
there will be no question us to receiving this permission, since the interests
on both sides are identical, the miner-'
al zone paying no attention to the
International boundary, and the operators working in unison for the
advancement of the district without
regard to nationality.
Mr. W. J. Crawford offered the free
use of the Crawford Transfer Company
horses for packing samples in from
the hills, and Max Lipovatss, proprietor of the Golden Gate on International Avenue has allowed his store to
be used as an assembly room for the
ores.

Silverado Mine at
Stewart Bonded
Mr. J. J. Coughlan and associatesiof
Vancouver, have purchased under a
working bond, the Silverado Minihg
Property from the owners, John
Haahti and J. W. Stewart and associates.
According to the agreement, a substantial cash payment was made! a
further payment to be made in December, 1921; the balance to be spread
in equal payments over the remainder
of the two years, which is the lifetime
of the bond, In additiou to this the
purchasers are to start work immediately. Their plans in this connection
are to build a light tram from the
showings, which are at an elevation of
about 4200 feet, down to the 2200 foot
level. Prom this point a trail will be
built to tidewater, The construction
of a permanent camp, in order to enable actual mining and necessary
development to be carried on throughout the winter, is also included in the
programme.
The Silverado mine is situated on
the west side of the Portland Canal,
opposite the mouth of Bear River and
the town of Stewart; the showings
being at an elevation of about 4200
feet, and only 8000 feet distant from
deep water on the canal.
There are 12 tons of ore already
sacked on the dump, running about
690 ozs. in silver. Assays of from 1100
to 1300 ozs. of silver are common on
this property. There are 11 high
grade showings on the claims. R. L.
Clothier will be in charge of the work.
For every man who is willing to lift
you will find a dozen who will cheer

ALICE   ARM   AND   ANYOX   HERALD,   Alice Arm,   Saturday, September 3rd., 1S21
WEDDING AT ANYOX
Two Well-known Local Residents
are Married
A very pretty wedding, was sol-
emised at the home of Mr. and
Mrs. Dobbin, on Thursday, September 1st, when Miss Lucille
Davis and Mr. Edwin C. Gilling-
liain were united in marriage.
The Rev. J. B. Gibson performed
the ceremony. . Mr. H. M. Roscoe
acted as best man, and Miss Agnes
McMillan attended the bride.
'The bride, who was given in
marriage by her brother, Mr.
Harold Davis, looked charming in
a white Crepe Meteor Dress, trimmed with Henna, and carried a
boquet of Brides Roses.
The room was most artistically
decorated for the occasion with
evergreen, maple leaves, roses,
sweet peas and nasturtiruns, while
a large Tull'e Wedding' Bell suspended from the centre of, the
room added greatly to the attractiveness.
The bridegroom's gift to the
Bridesmaid was a beautiful pearl
necklace and to the best man, a
platinum tie pin.
The bride was the recipient of
many handsome and useful presents, winch testify to the. popularity and esteem in which the
contracting parties are held in the*
community.
A sumptuous wedding breakfast
was served by Mrs. Dobbin at the
conclusion of the ceremony..
The happy couple left for their

Dr. Broe and Nursing
Staff of Anyox
The people of Anyox are sorry to
see another old-timer leave the
camp, never to return. Dr. Broe,
who tendered his resignation some
time ago severed his connection
with the hospital the end of last
month. The Doctor was always
held in the greatest esteem by the
people of Anyox, he was always
ready to do his best for everyone,
and always had a word of good
cheer for his patients even if he
was ready to drop" for want of
sleep. Four nurses have also sev-
their connection with the hospital;
they are Miss Edna McVicar, who
has been here four years; Miss
Isabel McVicar, one year; Miss
Stone, two years, and Miss Blair
seven months. All the nurses are
popular young ladies, and will be
missed by a large circle of friends.
Miss Edna McVicar and Miss
Stone are going to New. York to
take special nursing courses, and
Miss Isabel McVicar and Miss
Blair will stay in Vancouver.

Miss Dolly Varden and Miss
Alice Arm were engaged in a ter-
refic struggle last Sunday, on the
flats. Alice got the best of the
argument and poor Miss Dolly
handcarred it back to her "native"
mountains, more silent, sober and
sadder than when she came down.
On her arrival home she confided
to her neighbour, Mr. David Cop-
perfield, by the light of the North
Star, all that had happened that
dreadful day, and a howl of rage
went up from the wildcat, the wolf,
the tiger and the moose when they
heard the shameful way she had
been treated.
