I Will the Dolly
Varden Mine
Change Hands?
Speculation is rife as to whether
the Dolly Varden and Wolf Mines
will shortly change hands.    It is
well-known that the Taylor Mining
Co. are negotiating with one of the
largest and most influential mining
I companies  in the United States,
with a view of selling out.   Two
of the best mining engineers on the
continent have recently examined
the property;   Mr. E. E. Erich,
of   San Francisco, who was here
(last month, and Mr. A. H. Lawry,
'j also of San Francisco, who arrived
, on   a  special  boat  from  Prince
Rupert   on  the  evening of July
, 30th. and left on August 3rd.   It
. is to be sincerely hoped that the
property will change hands.   This
district has been held back long
. enough, and if the present policy
[ of keeping the Dolly Varden closed
down is persisted in, it will cripple
' the camp for years to come.   With
first-class  mining   company in
control of the Dolly Varden, and
having a okar title to the property,
this camp would have the brightest
prospects of any mining camp in
I British Columbia.
It is reported that the,, shipping
of ore from the Dolly Varden will
cease next week, which means that
the railroad will be again closed,
except for hand cars. ^ All ore
taken out this summer has been
' done by the creditors of the Taylor
Mining Co. under the name of the
North Trust Co.
Work Started on
New School
Citizens of Alice Arm Clear Site
A Working Bee was held last
Sunday, to clear the four govern-
|'ment\lots on the Riel townsite,
on which it is proposed to erect the
new school. About 2 p.m. the
citizens of Alice Arm, could be seen
wending their way, with an axe on
their shoulders towards the scene
of operations, and in a short time
the dense clouds of smoke proclaimed to the people of Alice Arm,
that the first blow towards' a new
sohool had been struck. Between
, 20 and 30 good able-bodied men
(and Mrs. W. Clapham, who done
great work) were there, and in
about two hours, what was formerly a dense mass of Alders and Poplars was just a little pile of ashes*
and everyone went home with the
satisfaction of having accomplished
some good for the town and its
juvenile population. Muoh work,
however, remains to be done before
B. P. 0. ELK'S
FLAG DAY
PICNIC
The Children's Flag Day Picnic,
given by the Anyox Lodge, No. 47,
of the B. P. O. Elks, on Wednesday, August 10th, was a huge
success from every point of view.
The Weather was perfect, and there
was a large crowd out to enjoy the
fun, arid there was lots of it.
There were clowns there that
would make Charlie Chaplin, look
like an amateur, and Steve Jones
as a megaphone artist could not be
beat by the best Barnum and
Bailey barker. There was an
abundance of good things to eat
and drink, which kept a force of
willing workers busy handing it
out. Although called a children's
flag dayf those present were not all
youngstft-s, but they were all children for the day, from the youngest
to the oldest, and they all joined in
and made it the most enjoyable
day we have had in Anyox.
All the events on the programme
were keenly contested by large
entries of enthusiasts. Among the-
most novel events, were the contest
for the most freckles. The reddest
hair, and the parent with the largest number of children present on
the ground, which was won by
Mrs. Harrington, who paraded six
healthy specimens of the coming
generation. The Elks can rest
assured that they thorouglily earned the appreciation of "all those
who were present. It was a practical interpretation of the fraternal
spirit being extended to all who
cared to attend, whether Elks or
otherwise, and the Ariyox Elks
truly lived up to the synonym of
their name.   Best people on Earth.
We regret that owing to lack of
space, we are not able to publish
the list of prize winners this week,
but they will be published in our
next issue—Editor.
MINING ACTIVE ON
THE ILLIANCE RIVER
Work at' the Bellevue mine at
present, consists of exposing surface
showings. A fine lead of ore, six
feet wide has been exposed on the
east side of the river, which is the
opposite side to the present workings. Underground work will be
undertaken next winter, and will
consist of driving a tunnel on the
lower showings on the west side
of the river.
Mr. A. J. Bone and Mr. A. R.
Hodgson, who have been doing
considerable development work on
the Silver Star this summer, are
now actively engaged in developing the Monarch, which is also
situated on the Illiance River.
Work has been going on nearly
three weeks, With a force of 5 men
& consists of deepening & exposing
the surface showings, to gain a
better idea of the dipping of the
lead. The surface showings is extremely good copper ore,, carrying
some silver values.
•A crosscut has also been started
on the old tunnel, which* will strike |
the. ore bodief at a depth of 60 feet.
Considerable work has been done
on the, property at different times,
with little success; but ;it is confidently expected that through a
better study of the rook formation
and the dip of the leads, that considerable bodies of ore will be
.encountered.
ANYOX BASEBALL
Mr.'Fred Brown is in receipt "of
a wire from Ketchikan, guaranteeing the expenses of the Anyox
Baseball Team, for a series of
games at Ketchikan, on August
21st. If Anyox takes up the proposition, Ketohikaii will come and
and play at Anyox on Labor Day;
The Sons of Canada baseball and
football teams, will arrive in Anyox
on Saturday morning (today) to
play a series of games with picked
Anyox teams. Baseball will take
place on Saturday evening and
Sunday afternoon and football on
Sunday evening. The Sons of
Canada are top notchers of Prince
Rupert and good games are assured
the Anyox fans.'
The Elks are inviting these
teams to visit us, instead of the
Community League as was previously expected; so it is to be hoped
that the citizens will turn out in
force and give the visitors a good
reception and root for Anyox.
Both smelter teams will miss the
services of Jack Sherman, for a few
Repairs on Telegraph
Cabin at Alice Arm
The picturesque old log cabin
perched at the foot of the hill on
the west side of the town, which
does service as the Dominion Government Telegraph Office, is undergoing repairs. It had started to
slip down the hill, and supports
have been put in by George Beau-
din, also a new veranda and stairway. The cabin is twelve years
old, and it is hoped the Dominion
Government will soon fall in line
and erect a more 'modern building
and help give the town a better
appearance.

The Real Estate market of Alice

Toadstools are often mistaken for
mushrooms and brazen audacity is
often mistaken for genius.
The Elks; they think that they can
play baseball.
While other people know they can not'
play at all.
It's really quite a joke for them to
waste their time,
Trying to lick the Hidden Creek
Mine.

before?
They tell us that the Elks are going
very strong.
Sure to be the champions of that valiant game, Ping-Pong.
In Tiddly Winks and Marbles, I'm sure
they'll make a show;
But at Football or Baseball, Nol No!

The Mining Outlook
for Alice Arm.
The mining outlook for North-
em British Columbia is gradually
getting brighter, and it is very
probable that before very long
considerable new capital will be
invested in mining in the north.
The Taylor Mining Co. are at
present negotiating with one of the
largest mining companies of the
United States, with a view to sell
the Dolly Varden and Wolf
Mines, and there is no doubt that
if the terms are made easy enough
for the prospective purchasers, that
the Dolly Varden properties will
change hands, and we shall then
have a mining company on the
Kitsault River that has the money
to develop the properties and place
them on a permanent shipping
basis: It will also have had world
wide experience in regard to mining, which is the greatest asset of
all. Alice Arm needs a good
experienced mining company, with
the necessary capital to develop
and equip the property, and the
quicker we have them the better
it will be for everyone. •
It is a shame to have two rich
mines like the Dolly Varden and
the Wolf, laying idle, because the
present owners have not the nee
essary capital to work them. The
worst phase of the situation is that
as long as the Dolly Varden mine
is idle, and the railroad closed
down, no other company cares to
come in and pioneer. If the Dolly
Varden and Wolf mines were
opened up, no trouble would be
experienced in interesting other
good mining companies in the
district. It is to be sincerely
hoped that someone will open up
the Dolly Varden mine this year.
If the Taylor Mining Co. can not
do it, it is to be hoped that they
will make it possible for some other
company to do it.
The Government
Liquor Store.
On July 26th. a vote was taken
in Anyox, to see if the people
were in favor of establishing a
liquor store there or at Alice Arm,
and a majority of 173 were in
favor of having it located in Anyox.
It is nearly three weeks now since
the vote was taken and no word
has been received so far, on what
date the store is likely to be open-
d. It looks as though the whole
thing rests with the Granby Co.,
and that we get a store when the
company has a vacant place, which
may be this year, and it may be
next year. It has always been a
problem in the past to find suitable
quarters for the different shops and
offices of the various departments,
and the liquor store will probably
be no exception.
Meanwhile, the long-suffering
patient citizens of Alice Arm, who
by the way never voted on the
location of the store, have got to
send to Prince Rupert, and wait
from one to two weeks for their
goods. It is to be hoped that the
Granby Co. will soon have a
building ready for use as as liquor
store and let everyone in the district get the benefit of it that they
are entitled to.

'lacer Mining in
British Columbia
In 1858 alluvial or "placer" gold
was found in British Columbia, in
the bars of the lower Praser river.
Hardy and other adventurous prospectors followed the stream up—
following the golden trail thus
"struck"—and in 1860 and 1861,
on the headwaters of the river,
they discovered the exceedingly
rich "placers" of the Cariboo District, which have produced gold to
the value of about $50,000,000.
The news of these rich finds travelled abroad, and brought about a
rush of gold seekers from the then
failing goldfields of California, and
from almost every part of the
world. Prom this time practically
dates the opening-up and settlement of British Columbia.
Within the next ten years the
Province produced about $33,000,
000 worth of "placer" gold, the
greatest production for any one
year being in 1863, and amounting
to about $4,000,000. All of this
gold was obtained with pick and
shovel, without the' aid of any
machinery, which, as a matter of
fact, could not be taken into the
country over the crude trails and
roads which served well enough for
the pack animals of the early
miners and prospectors.
As has been the history of all
placer mining camps, a few years
saw all the more accessible gold
skimmed from the shallow deposits,
until, gradually, as the workings
became too deep for the ordinary
pick and shovel methods, then only
available, the placer output gradually dropped, until in 1898 the
annual production was only a
little over half a million dollars.
In 1899, however, plaoer mining
was revived by the disoovery of
new and virgin fields in the Atlin
District, a continuation to the
north of the famous Cariboo and
Omineca diggings of the past, arid
the connecting link between . these
and the more recent, but equally
famous goldfields of the Yukon,
thus completing the chain of a continuous "plaoer" districts from the
49th parallel, north-westerly, to
the 69th parallel.
The total production of placer
gold to date is about $75,944,203.

STEWART NOTES
While blasting out foundations
for a tower on the tramline at
Seven-mile, last week, a good looking lead of ore was opened up
which caused some excitement.
As far as can be ascertained it is
on ground already located.
The tramline angle station at
Pish creek is now about complete.
So also are the towers from about
Nine-mile down to above Hyder.
It is reported that great headway
is being made with these towers,
the crew on the job putting in
from five to six a day.
