Mining Outlook
for Alice Arm
Outlook Exceedingly Bright
for Next Year
Owing to the heavy fall of snow
which occurred last week on the
ills surrounding Alice Ann, the
numerous prospectors who were
leveloping their properties at the
ligher altitudes have ceased oper-
itions for the year. Several prop-
rties, however, situated at the
lower altitudes are still being
developed, especially in the vicinity
of the Esperanza mine.
While no big mining companies
have developed properties in the
upper Kitsault country this year,
due to the Dolly Varden Mine and
Railway still being in litigation,
a lot of work has been done by
property owners and the camp is
in a vastly superior, condition
regarding the amount of ore in
sight than it was a year ago.
Due to its close proximity to the
town of Alice Arm, thus being
independent of the Dolly Varden
Railway, the,Esperanza mine has
worked steadily throughout the
year, and has been a steady shipper
of ore since January last. Most of
the ore shipped has been high
grade silver ore, and went to
Tacoma and Trail smelters. About
two hundred tons of second grade
ore is now at the wharf, and this
pre will be smelted at Anyox.
It is anticipated that the litigation regarding the Dolly Varden
and Wolf mines, railway, etc. will
cease next month. Mr. 0. Wingfield, of Nevada, the mortgagee,
who obtained an order nisi against
the property last June, will in all
probability obtain an order absolute
next month, which date was set by
the court. Should such be the
case, there' is riot the slightest
doubt that mining operations will
be resumed on these two properties
early next spring, and that the
railway will again be in operation
for the transportation of supplies,
not only for the Dolly Varden
Company, but also for any other
company operating in the upper
Kitsault'country,
Several enquiries have recently
been made by influential companies
regarding mining properties at
Alice Arm, and the camp during
the past few weeks has also been
visited by several mining engineers,
who have " examined .; numerous
properties throughout the whole
distriot, the results of which will
be apparent next year.

Sale of Work and
Home Cooking, Anyox
A highly successful sale of work
and home-cooking, was held in
Christ Church, on Wednesday last,
under the auspices of the Ladies'
Aid, when the sum of about $225
was realized. The weather was
ideal for the event, and consequently a large number of ladies
availed themselves of the opportunity to purchase articles suitable
for Christmas presents, etc. From
the time the doors opened until,,
what we heard a lady term "His
Master's Voice," sounded at five
o'clock, a large crowd thronged
the building.
Mrs. Eve and Mrs. Kribbs were
in charge of the plain and fancy
work stall. Mrs. Macknight and
Mrs. Selfe, home-cooking stall.
Mrs. Jenkinson, Mrs. Rashleigh,
Mrs. Manzer, Mrs. T. Loseke, Mrs.
P. Davis, and Misses Ward and
Eaton were kept busy in the^
refreshment department. Mrs. 0.'
M. Watson dished up the ice creani
to the satisfaction of everybody,
and Mrs. F. M. Kelley with her
"lucky spin" catered to the requir-
ments of tlwTis»mg*'gei'teratitS,rV."' —-
The sale was followed by a social
in the evening, wheu the following
ladies and gentlemen kindly contributed to the enjoyment of thosei
present.
Mrs. 0. M. Watson, Mrs. Lawrence, Miss Leitoh, Miss M. Macknight, and Messrs. J.Parker, H.
E. I. Braithwaite, J. Cameron, E.

W. S. Heidenrich, of Vancouver,
who spent ten days examining
mining properties in the upper
Kitsault country, left on Monday,
accompanied by Mrs. Heidenrioh.
W. G. Norrie-Lowenthal, who

oountry around Hazelton.
L. C. McPherson, who made an
examination'of the Verona property, on Roundy Creek, and also
several properties, in the Kitsault
Valley, left last week.
Will Drive Tunnel
Work commenced this week on
the two olaims joining the Esperanza mine on the north-east side.
These claims were recently acquired by Anyox interests and arrangements hsve been made with
Jack Murdock to drive a 16-ft.
tunnel on the property.
Another Interesting
Debate Held at
at Alice Arm
The weekly debate of the Alice
Arm Debating Society, was held
in the Coliseum, on Tuesday evening. A business meeting was held
previous to the debate, which was
called at seven p.m.
A list of bylaws was received
from the oomniittee, formed for
drawing up rules, etc., which was
read by the Chairman. Discussion
then followed as to ' where the
debates should be held in future,
and on a vote being taken, it was
decided to hold all debates iu
future at the Coliseum.
The debate was then proceeded
with. The subject for the evening
was: "Resolved that there is more
joy and happiness derived from
anticipation than realization."
Speakers for anticipation were:
Miss Nettie Hogburg, C. P. Riel,
A" D. Yorke. Realization: Miss
Zorka Sutilovich. J. Anderson, M.
Petersen.
J. Anderson opened the evening's flood of oratory with a neat
little 'Speech, inJisljichJi«.,said that
no joy is obtained from anticipation,
and quoted the prospector who
anticipated making big. money
some day, but do not; get any enjoyment until his wish is realized.
C. P. Riel followed with a point
ed speech, and said, anticipation is
hope, and every individual and
nation is full of hope for the future.
Realization means responsibility.
Miss Zorka Sutilovich was the
next speaker. She gave a surprising addresss, and probably scored
more points than any other speaker. She said it is time to stop
anticipating. We have anticipated
on mining and logging all the time
we have been in Alice Arm, and it
is time we realized something and
obtained some joy. When a man
is hungry he can't anticipate a
meal and be happy.
Miss  Nettie Hogburg followed
with a short address, which was
full of  snap,  she said that real

Logging Operations
to be Commenced
Fred Miller, who has secured a
oontraot from Trethewey Bros, to
log two million feet of lumber from
their holdings' on the Alice Arm
flats, is making preparations to
start work immediately." The
oamp from Way Point1 will be
floated up and falling will commence as soon as the Oamp is fixed
up. The donkey engine'now at
Maoy Quartz will ■ be used for
pulling ,the logs. It is rumored
that yet more land will be logged
in the vicinity of Alioe Arm in the
iear future, beside, the Trethewey
holdings. It is understood Trethewey Bros, will log forty million
feet.
Weekly Meeting of
Anyox Community
League Council
The regular weekly meeting of
the Community League Council was
held in the Mine Hall on Wednesday evening, November 8th.
Present: President Ferguson, Secy-
Tim Lowry, Councillors, Mrs. McKay and Mr. Rowley.
On the reading of the minutes of
the preceding meeting, it was
moved by Mr. Lowry and seconded
by Mr. Rowley that they be adopted as read.
The Secretary's report told of
meeting of Finance Committee to
consider the Children's Xmas Entertainment. This meeting had
been held in Mr. Wing's office. It
had been decided that a children's
gathering would be held on December 21st. At this party refreshments, and candies would be distributed, there would be dancing and
several novelties introduced for the
pleasure of the little ones. It was
also proposed to obtain, if possible,
a Movie Pantomime. If thik can
not be secured, one or morVjshort

shown. The Management of the
Granby Company had promised to
assist in this entertainment. About
fifty new members had been signed
on the statement during the past
month.
' An application from Messrs.
Gillespie and Hannan, for the lease
of the Maple Bay Cafe premises
was brought to the attention of the
Council. As Mr. Jessop is leaving
Anyox, the Council saw no reason
why a lease for a stated period and
under equitable conditions should
not be issued. It was then moved
by Mr. Rowley and seconded, by
Mrs. McKay that the matter of the
Maple Bay Cafe should be handled
by the Ways and Means Committee. I
In connection with the Dancing
Class,   Mr.   Lowry  reported   the

Can We Hold Our
Immigrants.?
A lot of people in Canada are
trying to solve the problem of
increasing the population of the
Dominion at a greater rate than
has been done in the past. The
census last year was a great disappointment, inasmuch as it showed
that we had lost a large number
of immigrants that landed on our
shores during the past ten years.
If we had held all the immigrants
that came to Canada, the population would have been nearly two
million more than was shown by
the last census. But we did not
hold them, and the present government is trying to find the reason
why, It is useless to argue that
we do not get the right class of
people, because we get exactly the
same as the United States, Arge*
tine, Brazil, Australia, South
Africa, or any other country. Too
much advertising of the rosy side
of life in Canada has been done in
the past throughout Europe, especially by the big transportation
companies. Millions of beautiful
booklets, illustrating waving fields
of grain, with a railway train steaming along in the background, were
distributed before the war, but the
poor immigrants found on arrival
that the railway was very much in
the background as far as vacant
land was concerned. Others who
came in search of work, could not
find it, and they either went home
or moved to another country. The
population of Canada will grow
just as soon as more railways and
wagon roads are built into the
unsettled parts, when more industries are started, when freight rates
and taxation is lowered, and when
it is possible for a man who wants
a day's work to be able to get it.
Beautiful booklets and posters may
bring a lot of people to our shores,
but it will not hold them, as past
experience has shown. All the
literature issued by the government
and transportation companies can
not offsett the letters written home
by people who have come out
during recent years. Millions of
people are ready to come to
Canada, but they will not come
until better reports of conditions
here reach them from returning
emigrants, and also from friends
resident in the country.
Mining Active at Alice
Arm Next Year
Continued from page 1.
The'companies sending mining
engineers into the district this fall,
undoubtedly know that the railway
will be operating next summer,
and that considerable activity will
be going on. They are therefore
losing no time in satisfying themselves that the mineral is here.
That the district possesses unlimited mineral wealth, is well
known to everyone who has examined the unusually large surface
showings and also the underground
work. Mining men and prospectors who have travelled through
most of the mining camps on the
continent, unanimously agree that
for high class showings, Alice Arm
is the "daddy" of them all.
Nearly every mining camp, is, at
its commencement, flooded vvith
"bura'\companies and wildcat operators, and Alice Arm has been
no exception. These people come
and go like the summer flies, and
after them follow the legitimate
mining companies. The day of the
wildcat promotor in Alice Arm
seems to be about over. We are
entering upon a new stage, and the
coming spring will witness a resumption of mining ou a big scale, the
work will be done by men who
know the business, and it will be
permanent.
Not only is the Kitsaiult Valley
receiving the attention of mining
men, but the district in the vicinity
of McGrath mountain, and across
the bay on Roundy Creek and
Lime Creek is also coming into
prominence. Some fine showings
of ore are located in these districts,
and it is possible that it will some
day rival the Kitsault Valley, for
value of ore mined.
Granby Company
Working Properties
The operations of the Granby
Company in the district, are now
well under way for the winter, says
the Portland Canal News. Supplies
sufficient to last the winter have
been taken into the Sunshine
property, on Glacier Creek, and as
soon as certain preliminary outside
work has been completed, the work
of driving the tunnel will commence.
On the Outsider group, where a
crew of seven or eight men are
employed on oontraot, work is
progressing very satisfactorily. A
two-drill compressor, operated by
water power, is now ready for
operation, and active mining and
development work is now under
way.
Dancing Classes at Anyox
Mine
The Mine Club held their first
dancing class in the Mine Hall,, 6n
Monday, November 6th. These
classes were organized by Billy
Legg, chairman of dances and
sboials. The first class was very
successful, some forty persons
beiiig present.
Anyone is invited to attend these
Classes. No charge whatever is
made,*as several ladies and gentlemen at the Mine are giving their
services free.
Skating Rink for Stewart
The Stewart Athletic Association have decided to construct a
skating rink. The rink will measure 40ft. by 120ft. A finance
committee of eight has been
selected.
Mr. Bowser is certainly giving
Prince Rupert a lot of free publioity
these days.
The stranger is'nt very long in
that fishing burg, before he finds
out that it is some sporty town. •
Keep on Going.
One step won't take you very far,
You've got to keep on walking;

One little ad. won't do it all,
You've got to ksep 'em going.

Skating Rinks
Alice Arm has got a rink.
Stewart will have one two.
No wonder all the Anyoxjtes
Are feeling kind/of blue.
The rink at Alioe Arm was built
in 1921,
And since that day, oh yes, I'll
say, we've surely had some fun,
Stewart is going to build their
rink in 1923,
But they can't build one at
Anyox, it is too near the sea
To freeze.
Ducks
Several good bags of ducks were
brought to town during the weekend. The good ship, Wanderer,
with five guns, bagged 65 in a two
day trip. The marksmen were: T.
Almos, C. L. Champion, F. F.
Brown, H. and B. Ballion.

When you are feeling  kind   of
punk,
Dont go out and get dead drunk
Take a bottle with you to bed
It may be a cold in the  head,
Be that as it may,  elbow grease
never spoiled any man's shirt.
Speaking of bathinu in famous
springs—We once knew a tramp who
bathed in the spring of '88.—Ex.

your death notice won't appear among
