Champion Ladies*
Team of Anyox
Are Bluebirds
In the second game played at
the Mine Gymnasium, the Mine
girls had a decided edge on the
evening's play. Hard luck in
their shooting was the cause of
their downfall. Their combination play was the feature of the
game.
The lirst half ended with the Bluebirds in the lead 'I to 3. Soon
after the resumption of play, the
Mine forged ahead, but lost the
lead again a few minutes later.
Mrs. McQuarrie and Mrs. McTaggart scored for the winners with 4
and 5 respectively. Miss McMillan was high for the losers with 4
points. Two players were forced
from the game via the four personal foul route, Mrs. Smith and Miss
Rashleigh.
Teams were:
Bluebirds: Smith-1, Cody,
Dwyer-2, McQuarrie-5, Crone, McTaggart-4.
Mine: Misses. Calderoiie-2, Rashleigh Dean-3, McMillan-4, Mrs. C.
Chapman, Mrs. Wenistrom-3.
Geo. Lee refereed both games.
Four Players Survive in Coke
Plant and Mine Game
As a preliminary to the ladies
game, the Mine and Coke Plant
senior squad, engaged in mortal
combat. The game was of the
wild and woolly variety, ending up
with only two players of each
team on the floor. Twenty seven
personal fouls were handed out during the proceedings. Bob Stewart
and Jimmie Mitchell were the
survivors for the Mine. Hogben
and Moffat for the Coke Plant.
Teddy Swanson made his senior
debut, and led the scorers for the
Mine with 8 points. Archie Smith
was high for the Coke Plant  with
11.
Teams were: Coke Plant, Cody-
3, Thompson. Hogben-6, Fitz-
patriok-8, Smith-It, Moffat.
Mine: Peters-1, S. Stewart, R.
Stewart-3, Mitchell-6, MeNichol-5,
Dean-2, Swansou-8 Halverson-4
The Bluebirds were crowned
champions of the Anyox Ladies'
Basketball League, on Thursday
evening, when they defeated the
Mine girls in a fast and close contest. Their win gave them the
series, as they won the first game
on Friday.
The Champions had things
pretty much their own way in the
first game which was played at
the Beach Gymnasium. The score
was 20 to 11. The girls from the
the mine seemed unable to hit
their stride, and who were never
dangerous. Mrs. McQuarrie was
the high scorer for the winners
with 14 points. Helen Calderone
with 6, was high for the losers.
Teams were: Mine: Misses
Calderone-6, Rashleigh-2, Dean-3,
McMillan, Mrs. Capman, Mrs.
Wenistrom.

Big Tonnage at Toric Mine
Exceeds Highest Expectations
Crosscut Tunnel Drills Through   97 Feet Of Ore.     Values Are Persistent
Throughout.   Native Silver Is Predominent Ore, also carries Argentite
and Galena.   Biggest Ore Body Ever Encountered in District
News received from the Toric
mine during the week indicates
that a mine of immense possibilities
is bc-ing developed. The No. 1.
West crosscut tunnel, which was
driven 50 feet west of No. 1 cross
cut has cut the ore body, after
drilling through 97 feet of ore.
The tunnel was commenced on the
foot wall, and after taking into
consideration the clip of the ore
body, it has been proven
that the ledge is at least
40 feet in width, says Mr.
T. Tavener, who, during the absence of Mr. A. C. H. Gerhardi,
is in charge of operations.
Owing to the fact that the exact
angle of the dip of the ore body has
not yet been ascertained, 40 feet
has been given as the minimum
width. The ore body is expected,
however, to be proved much wider
:L- .'elopiiieut work proceeds.
The whole ledge is impregnated
with silver, values being evenly
listributed. The ore is composed
of native silver, argentite and
galena, native silver being exceptionally prominent.
On reaching the hanging wall,
it  was found  that the ore body
idens ou the  hanging  wall,  and
as it dips into the mountain, it is
evident that the width of ore body
increases with depth.
As soon as the hanging wall was
encountered in the No. 1 West
crosscut tunnel, the work of extending No. 1 crosscut was undertaken. This tunnel, at the middle
of the week was in 96 feet, and
although the hanging wall had not
yet been reached, a few more
rounds was expected to break
through.
The highest grade ore yet found
in the mine was encountered in
this tunnel during the early part
of the week, and samples brought
to town, show native silver in
abundance.
As is similar to all other ore
ledges in the north, this ore ledge
has faulted. As soon as the hanging wall of the latter tunnel is
reached it will be.followed to the
fault, and it is anticipated that no
difficulty will be encountered in
picking up the ledge on the other
side, as it is not expected that the
fault is a very large one.
It is the opinion of all who have
examined the property that it is a
true fissure vein. The walls are
clearly defined.   The vein can  be
traced on the surface across the
Kitsault River into the North
Star, which property joins the
Dolly Varden.
Since starting underground
work, on Ootober 15th. 1924, the
Consolidated Homestake Mining
and Development Co. have drilled
over 500 feet of tunnelling, using
one drill, one shift per day. Al
though they have established i
record in regard to the amount of
ore blocked out during that period,
with suoh a small crew of men,
they are not hysterically advertising the fact as numerous other
companies are wont to do when ore
is encountered. Their present
policy is to do the work, and the
amount of ore blocked out and the
values will speak for themselves.
A big tonnage of ore has already
been blocked out or. the Toric at a
small cost compared with numerous other properties. In fact, it is
hard to find a similar case in the
annals of northern mining history.
The Toric possesses all the earmarks of developing into one of the
big mines of the province, and the
success being attained will be of
immeasurable benefit to the mining
industry of Alice Arm.
Anyox Mosquitos
Ready To Go
The local mosquito fleet is coming along with a surprising burst
of speed, and there are a number
of boats ready for the water.
Sam Herrin has been working
steadily on his boat, the "Eldrona'*
and he announces that he is now
ready to compete with the best
local yachts.
Asimus and Scott's boat, the
"Chum," has been given a complete overhaul by its owners, and
she also is "ready to go."
The "Bearcat" after undergoing
a very careful overhaul by her
skipper, Pete McKarracher, is
ready to show her heels to her
sisters of the mosquito fleet.
Barney Buck is working steadily
on his boat, the "Wildcat" aud
will soon have her ready for the
summer cruising.
Charlie Clay has taken his boat,
the "Bernnie" and made a "real
boat" out of her. The ''Bernnie"
as known in shipping circles last
year, was a boat that set very low
in the water and withal, not a nice
appearing boat for rough seas.
However, the "Bernnie" which will
be known in local shipping circles
this year, is an altogether different
story. Skipper Clay says that
his boat will now weather the
roughest gale that will blow.
Esperanza May Change
It is understood that negotiations are being made by the syndicate owning the Esperanza, for a
sale of that property.
It is reported that intending
purchasers are composed of influential Vancouver men. and that
should they acquire the property,
an active programme of development work will be carried out.
Alice  Arm  Holds St.
Patrick's Dance
The birthday anniversary of the
patron saint of Old Ireland was
fittingly celebrated at the Alice
Arm Hotel on Tuesday evening,
when a dance was held. A good
number of people were present.
Dancing commenced at 9 o'clock
and continued until around 2 in
the morning.
The Alice Arm orohestra was
augumented by two new artists,
and the splendid music added considerable enjoyment to the evening's pleasure. The six-piece orchestra was composed of: Mrs. T.
W. Falconer, piano; Mrs. J. Laidlaw, saxophone; Mrs. G.- A. Young,
bells: Mr. Chas Hutchinson,
clarinet; Master Lome Falconer,
violin; R. G. Gordon, saxophone.
Big Crowd Attend St.
Patrick's Dance At
Anyox
The annua] St Patrick's Dance
was held at the Recreation Hall
last Monday evening.
The dance was held under the
auspices of the ladies of the Catholic Church, and was a splendid
success. The refreshments were
good, the music good, aud the
large crowd thoroughly enjoyed
themselves.
The dance commenced at 9
o'clook and continued until 2, with
a short intermission at 11 o'clock
for refreshments.
The committee in charge consisted of Mrs. E. Morning, Mrs. A.
Morton, Mrs. J. Wier, Mrs. F.
Person, Mrs. Young.
Mr. Paddy Ryan superintended
the decorating, and also acted as
floor manager. Jimmy Thomson
very capably looked after the refreshment end in the kitchen.
The members of the orchestra
were: Austin, piano; Armstrong,
violin; Stivenard, cornet; McDougall, cornet; Steele, trombone;
Waterman, drums.
During the evening, Miss Margaret O'Neil danced the Irish Jig
to the pronounced appreciation of
all present.
The Catholic ladies wish to extend their thanks to all who helped
make the dance such a success.

Dolly Varden May Be
Operated
Persistent rumours come lo hand
regarding the taking over of the
Dolly Varden and Wolf properties
by the Belmont Surf Inlet Mines
Ltd. This company has been
operating at Surf Inlet since 1916.
It is well known that their properties at Surf Inlet will shortly
be closed on account of lack of ore.
The company are anxious to obtain another property ou the coast
on which to instal their machinery,
and it is possible that negotiations
are under way for an option on
the Dolly Varden and Wolf.

The proposed organization for
the promotion of the mining industry for the Alice Arm district,
is a good move and a move in the
right direction, Such an organization has been sorely needed for a
considerable length of time, and if
such an organization is formed, it
will greately accelerate the development of the district, provided its
energies are expended in the right
direction, and that it has the undivided support of the whole community. Every city, town, and hamlet
throughout the province has an
organization working for its welfare,
and Alice Arm, if it is going to
prosper must do the same or take
its place among the "has-beens."
It is becoming plain to everyone
now that the logging industry is
drawing to a close, that mining is
our sole dependence. At the present time the future looks exceptionally bright, and now that the
industry shows signs of improvement it is for all of us to do our
best to increase its prosperity.
There is a lot of money being invested in mining every day
throughout the province, as a per-
usual of the provincial press that
arrives at the Herald office shows.
If we do not get our share of this
money, it is, to a great extent, our
own fault. It is understood that
the proposed organization contemplates a certain amount of
publicity work. If a sane programme of publicity is carried out,
it will to a large extent solve a lot
of our present problems. It is
evident that Alice Arm can not
exist as a two-dozen-miner-camp.
We have to expand the mining industry or lose our population. It
is a good policy, that instead of
"belly-aching" around, that all get
together and discuss the best ways
and means of increasing our prosperity. What others have done,
we can do.
Big Moose Smoker Was
Very Successful
Audience Treated To Large
And Varied Programme
Famous Rossland Mine
Ships Real High Grade
What is reputed to he the richest shipment yet made since thr reopening of the now famous old
I. N. L. free gold property, was
sent to the smelter of The Consolidated Mining and Smelting Co.
of Canada, Ltd., at Tadanac.
In local mining circles it is
understood that the latest shipment is the best ever sent out from
the I. X. L., and this in the face of
the fact that some of the ore mined during the summer ran as high
as $1,000 per miner's ore bag.
That being the case the ship,
ment, it is conservatively estimated
by miners who should know, will
total in the neighborhood of $80,-
On Friday, March 3, the Anyox
Lodge Loyal Order of Moose, held
a smoking concert, in their hall.
The hall was lilled to capacity, and
the concert was a splendid success.
The members ou the programme
were all exceptionally good, and
the audience showed their appreciation by encores repeatedly.
Brother Kirkwood very capably
acted as chairman, and the Moose
Orchestra furnished the music,
which was up to their usual good
standard. It was very plainly
demonstrated through the evening
that Brother Reynolds is certainly
bringing his pupils along in regard
to the art of self defence. Brother
Reynolds gave two exhibition bouts
with his pupils, one with VV. Ascot,
and the other with Master Russel
MacMillan.
Brothers Dearlove and Peters
furnished their audience with a
thrill, with an exhibition of the
fistic art. From start to finish
this bout was a battle.
The supper was put up by the
Bluebird Cafe, and all voted that
the eats were in keeping with the
splendid entertainment of the evening. The smokes for the evening
were donated by Mr. Sid Elmer,
of the El Dora Cigar Co.. who
gave El Dora cigars, and Mr. I),
V. Davidson, of the Imperial
Tobacco Co., who denoted Bruns
wick Invincible Cigars, Old Kentucky Cigarettes, and Ogdens Cut
Plug Tobacco. These kind de-
uotions are heartily appreciated by
IheL.O.O.M.
The programme of the evening
was as the following: Selection,
Moose Orchestra. Vocal duet.
Messrs. Owen and Evans. Song,
Brother 1). MacCauley. Clog

Old Theory Exploded In
Regard To Mining
Investments
That mining is not the hazardous financial investment that is
generally supposed is the effect of
arguments and evidence advanced
by' the Financial Review of New
York.
Gold and silver mine dividends
exceed those of all banks, says the
review, which adds:
The conservative New York
Tribune recently created considerable chagrin among the certain investment bankers by publishing
the following statement relative to
mining investments."
'One of the things that inves-
inent bankers have had to admit is
that tin! gold and silver dividends
of the United States during the
past two years are greater than the
combined dividends of all the banking institutions of this country,
and on the head of that the government figures show that the average
returns on capital invested by
banking interests to be about %{
per cent., while the return on mining was 182 per cent. And Dunn
and Bnidstrcet show that only 32
per cent, of mining investments
fail, against 54 per cent failure in
other lines of business."
"To this the editor of the Mineral Age of Denver comments as
follows:
''And we might add to the above
that farm loans and livestock loans
have broken more banks in the
Mountain States during the last
two years than mining loans did in
all the years since '59. With a
few such facts as the above, creeping out is not surprising that the
bankers are losing their strangle
hold upon investment money, and
that capital is again turning to
the mining Held."

Former Alice Arm Resident
Expects Cleanup
Paddy Creigh left the first of

has a placer claim on Cedar creek.
He expects to make a big clean-up

Higgs (at poker table at 10.00

wife, pretend that you're me, and
tell her you are still at the office,
and won't lie home for a couple of
hours yet.
Briggs—Won't she recognize my
lice?
Higgs—No,_ not at all. She'll
be out, and it will only be the
servant girl pretending that it's
her.—Life.

production to the end of 1923 show
An Aggregate Value of $810,722,782
The substantial progress of the Mining Industry in this Province is strikingly exhibited in the following
figures, which show the value of production for successive live-year periods:   For all years to 1895. inclusive,
$91547 241; for five years, 1896-1900. $57,607,967; for live years. 1901-1905. 896.507.968: for live years. 1906

Lode-mining has only been in progress for about 33 years, and not 20 per cent of the Province has been
even prospected; 300,000 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.

Y on may lead a horse to water,
But you cannot make him ilriuk;
You may send a boy to college,
But you cannot make him think.
You may preach some mini a sermon,
But you'll never change their way;
They will go right on to-morrow
As they've started out today.
You may tell them to lie hanking,
But they'll never save a cent;
You may urge them to he building,
But they'll keen on paying rent.
You may write a lot of verses
That you'll never see in print;
Vou may tell a bore you're busy,
Hut he'll never take the hint.
You may lead some men to business,
But they'll never make a start:
You may show some men their duty
But they'll never do their part.
You may dress some folks in satin,
But you'll never change their looks:
You may give some folks a bookstore,
But they'll never read the books.
You may lead a horse to water
But you'll find this true I think,
That unless the horse is thirsty,
There's no way to make him drink.

Quiet Wedding
Celebrated at Anyox
A very quiet wedding was solemnized at the home of Mr. and
Mrs. 8. A. Down last Saturday
evening, when their son Harry
S. Down was united in marriage
to Miss Margaret Wilson.
The ceremony was performed by
Rev. ,1. Herdman, at 8 p.m.
The young couple are both well
known locally, and we join their
many friends in wishing them all
happiness. The bride, previous to
her marriage held a position at the
local Post Office. The groom, during the past six months has been a
resident of Ketchikan, but previous
to then was a resident of Anyox.
Mr. and Mrs. Down will leave
for Ketchikan within the next few
weeks, where they plan to make
their future home.
The Herald job printing department is always anxious to cater to
your wishes. Our prices are right
and our work is right.
