Alice Arm  Celebrates On Lavish
Scale
Alice Arm went the limit on
Friday July 1st. when the little
mining town oelebrated the Diamond Jubilee of Canadian Confederation.
Tho programme included many
events that have not been heretofore attempted. The sports events
were the largest evor held, the
largest crowds in the town's history
attended, and this, with the parade;
open air speeches; the band; the
singing of the sohool children, and
the antics of the clowns, together
with a lavish display of bunting
made July 1st. 1927 a red letter
day that will long be remembered.
The day's celebration commenced
at 1 p.m. and shortly before that
hour, the streets were filled with
prancing horses carrying clowns,
etc; school ohildren waving Hags,
blowing trumpets and each wearing
a bronze Maple Leaf, and adults in
hundreds all with a silk flag in
their coats, wending their way to
the school house.
The lavish decorating of the
streets was among the conspicuous
events of the day. Arches, decorated with red, white and blue
bunting, topped by numerous flags
were erected the entire length of
First Street, The initiative ofthe
decorating was taken by Wm. M.
Cummings, wlio weeks ago had
laid plans, and on the eve of the
1st. everything was in readiness
for the workers. The open space
in front of the school was also a
riot of color artistically designed.
At 1 p.m. the programme was
commenced by H. Fowler, who was
Marshall of the day. He was
dressed in appropriate costume,
and mounted ou a fiery steed superintended and announced the numbers on the programme.
In a short and oonoise speech he
stated why we were oelebrating.
and gave an outline of the advantages obtained by being fortunate
enough to dwell in this rich and
prosperous Dominion, a vast
country which was a part of a
still vaster empire.
The singing of O'Canada was
then given by the sohool children
under the direction of Wm. Stephens, during which the flag was
raised on the tall flag pole in front
of the Sohool House.
An address on "The Flag" was
given by E. Moss, who confined
his remarks to its origin, and history. He also explained how it
had brought the light of civilization
to thb dark parts of the world, and
in its wake had followed liberty,
equality and justice for everyone
over whom it floated.
"The Maple Leaf" was then sang
by the sohool children.
An address was given by T. W.
Falconer, who reviewed the events
that led up to the confederation of
the four original provinces, and
how the others were later iuoluded
Wolf Mine Ships Ore
To Anyox
A shipment of ore, totalling
approximately twenty-five tons
was made this week by J. Fiva
and P. Peterson from the Wolf
mine. The ore, whioh is composed
of second grade, was shipped iu
bulk and is destined for Anyox
smelter. The high grade ore
sacked at the mine will be shipped
at a later date.
Mrs. H. F. Kergin received the
sad news on June 30tb. that her
sister, Mrs. Browr. had passed
away at her home at Vernon. Mrs.
Brown spent several months visiting
Mrs. Kergin two years ago. She
had been in ill health for several
years and during the past few
months her condition was critical.
She resided many years in Prince
Rupert, and a host of friends in the
north will be sorry to hear of her
untimely death.
at different dates, until we had a
united Canada of nine provinces
extending from the Atlautio to the
Pacific oceans; a country of vast
riches and wonderful possibilities.
A recitation, "Laura Secord",
was then given by Miss Jean Falconer, whose rendition was very
creditable.
H. F. Kergin, M. L. A. gave an
address,, in which he explained the
high ideals of the fathers of Confederation, and the early struggles
of the pioneers during the birth of
the Dominion. He traced the
wonderful progress made since that
time, and exhorted his audience to
praotice aud encourage a Canadian
spirit.
"God Save the King" was then
sang lustily by all present.
The parade was then formed at
the head of which was the drum
and pipe band, consisting of Norman MoLeod, piper; J. Trinder,
and Chas Hutchison, drums. School
children followed, then decorated
cars, after which were hundreds of
marchers. The parade terminated
at the intersection of First Ave.
and First Street, where sports for
all were held.
An ice cream booth was quiokly
opened, and ice cream was distributed to everyone, and owing to the
heat the ladies were taxed to the
utmost in keeping their patrons
supplied.
The sports were carried, on until
5 p.m. All events were evenly
contested. The large number of
contestants in many races made it
necessary to run two heats, especially in the men's hundred yards
dash and the ladies nail driving
contest.
Following are the winners of the
various events:
1. Children under 6 years, 1
Edith Anderson, 2 BobbyO'Connor.
2. Boys under 8 years. 1 Bobby

A   "Canadian   Night"
Thrills Large Anyox
Audience
A "Canadian Night," whichpres-
ented under the auspices of the Collison Chapter I. 0. D. E., Anyox
Parent Teacher Association and the
Anyox Community League and held
in the Recreation Hall on Saturday
evening, July 2nd. very fittingly
commemorated the Diamond Jubilee
of Canadian Confederation. Any of
those who were fortunate enough to
witness the spectacle and were not
fully awake before to things Canadian should be fully educated
after such a vivid^ portrayal of our
country's past history and romance.
The ladies and gentlemen taking
part in the presentation of "A Canadian Night" should feel justified
that their earnest efforts were not
in vain.
Each of those taking part knew
his or her part perfectly. The acting of the various characters was
splendid and the costumes were
very characteristic.
Previous to the commencement of
the tableau, Mr. R. 0. Cutler, president of the Community League
gave a brief address on the reasons
for the Commemoration of Canada's
Diamond Jubilee, reviewing the
history of Canada's early days,
and naming the fathers of Confederation.
Mr. W. Murdoch rendered a vocal
selection after the appearance of
Britannia, and was in fine voice, as
also was Mr J. Hegerty who sang
after the appearance on the stage
of "Canada."
The hall was filled to capacity
with a very enthusiastic audience,
who voiced their approval of the
artistes' efforts by their vigorous
applause. The stage was very fittingly decorated for the occasion.
The splendid success of this
unique presentation of a "Canadian
Night" was of course divided by
everyone taking part . But sometimes those in the background are
playing conspicuous though unobserved parts. In this latter category
is Frank Kelley, secretary of the
Community League. It was due
chiefly to his untiring efforts that
the presentation of a Canadian
Night was made possible.
CARD OF THANKS
Capt. and Mrs. A. Cameron and
Mrs. D. MoKenzie wish to thank
all their friends for their kind expressions of sympathy during their
recent sad. bereavement.
During the thunder storm on
Saturday afternoon, lightning set
fire to the woods baok of the
Smelter. It resulted in quite a
blaze which raged all Saturday
night and Sunday. It finally
died down after the heavy rain on
Sunday night.

The Diamond Jubilee of Confederation is over. Anyox and Alice
Arm like true patriotic towns
played their part in the national
event, and played it as loyally and
enthusiastically as any town in the
whole Dominion. Such a celebration quickens the spirit of Can-
adianism that has become prevalent
throughout the land especially during the past few years. It creates
a spirit of pride in every Canadian,
whether native born or naturalized
and shows the stranger sojourning
within our borders for a short time
that we, as Canadians are as proud
of our heritage, our history and our
country as any people on the face
of the earth. Let there be lots of
such celebrations so that the spirit
of Canadianism can be expounded
and fostered, for loyalty to ones
country is the backbone of prosperity.

To the sports' programme should
be added J. Hanna and G. Smith.
The former was mounted in costume
on an elaborately attired horse,
and whose antics drew laughter
from the crowds and shouts of)
delight from the juveniles.
The latter dressed as a hobo, with
the regulation strawberry nose,
acted Lis  part to perfection.
A feature of the parade was Miss
Blanche Falconer, who, a little
figure mounted on a big horse
represented Canada, a small population on a big territory.
In tlie horse race between C.
Wilson and H. Smith, youth and
age were represented. The former
being 16 years and the latter over
70. Youth was served, but it was
a close shave.
Prizes for the races were presented by Mrs. N. Fraser, assisted by
Mrs. Al. Falconer.
The day's celebration was terminated by a dance at the Alice
Arm Hotel. A large number were
present and a- happy time was
spent. The orchestra consisted of
Wm. Stephens, piano, Chas. Hutchison, clarinet,, Lome Falooner,
violin, T. W. Falconer, drums.
The weather was ideal throughout the day, brilliant sunshine
being enjoyed the whole time.
During the evening a short thunder
storm was experienced, but rapidly
passed over. Alice Arm celebrated
Confederation and did it right.
Everyone lent a helping hand to
its success. Never before has the
town celebrated with such enthusiasm, never had such a display of
flags decorated the streets, and
at no time previously have such
large crowds participated.
The success of the day's oelebra-
tion belongs to a large number of
people, chief of whom was W. M.
Cummings. He it was who commenced laying plans weeks ago.
He collected sufficient funds to defray expenses, and made the task
oasier for those who later interested themselves.

of 1926, show an
Aggregate Value of $988,108,470
The substantial progress of the Mining industry of this Province is strikingly exhibited in the following
figures, which show the value of production'for successive five-year periods: For all years to 1895, inclusive $94,547,241; forfive years, 1896-1900, $57,607,967; for five years, 1901-1905, $96,507,968; tor Hve years-

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 whioh is guaranteed by
Crown Grants.
Practically all British Columbia Mineral Properties upon which development work has been done
are described in some one of the Annual Beports of the Minister of Mines. , Those considering
mining investments should refer to such reports. They are available without charge on application
to the Department of Mines, Victoria, B. C. Beports oovering eaoh of the six mineral Survey
Districts are published separately, and are available on application. Beports of the Geological

being in the nature of an electric
sign, with 1867-1927 in colored
lights and also an electric diamond
at the top. The posts supporting the sign were draped with red,
white and blue bunting and all together it made a very effective appearance. The other buildings decorated were the General Store, and
Liquor Store, Bluebird Cafe, Hospital, Hotel, Recreation Hall, and
the Elks' Hall and Canadian Bank
of Commerce. Not to mention the
boats on the waterfront with the
signal flags flying. Altogether
Anyox was quite a riot of color on
the holiday.
THE BASEBALL GAME
A team mostly composed of the
now defunct Elks' Ball tossers disposed of the Concentrator nine on
the evening of the First to the tune
of 13 runs to 5. It was a game
mostly composed of heavy hitting
and weird fielding. MikeChenoski
contributed a homer when his long
drive to left centre rolled into the
creek and McDonald failed to find
it in time to prevent him reaching
home. McDonald also poled one
into the creek for three bases, Beaulieu was on the mound for thelosers
with Roberts on the receiving end.
Fred Brown did the hurling for the
winners and Cody the catching,
Bill Montgomery called the balls
and strikes and Jack Hutchison
watched the bases.
The teams were:
