SERIOUS FIRE
AT ANYOX
On Wednesday last, at 5.40 p.m.
when most of us were sitting down
to our evening meal, we were
startled by the sound of the fire
whistle, and on going to the door
and looking out, one saw the roof
over the ore bins, at the Smelter
blazing from end to end.
It looked as though it might
have serious eonseqtienoes, beoause
if the bins and mill were to burn
down, the plant would probably
be closed down; but we are' pleased
to say that through the efforts of
a host of willing workers, the 'devouring element was confined to
the upper part of the building,
and within two hours the fire was
put out and all danger was passed.
Fortunately there was only a
slight breeze, and that was toward
the hillside where there are no
buildings; but had the wind been
in the other direction, the machine
shop and smelter store undoubtedly
would have caught fire.
After the fire was put out, examination of the damage done, proved
that only the roof and the superstructure over the bins and the
upper part of the sampling mill,
including the main conveyor belt
had been destroyed. The sample
mill will therefore be out of operation for a short period, but the
other part of the works oan operate
as usual.
The cause of the fire can not be
ascertained, as there was no sign
of fire ten minutes previously,
when the men on shift were unloading ore into the bins.
TRAPSH00TING
One of the most successful shoots
of the year was held last Wednesday evening at the Anyox traps,
and a large field was present.
The local nhnrods were very fortunate in having the opportunity of
watching the work of Mr. Richbr-
son, one of the best trapshooters in
Vancouver, and profiting by his
expert advice. Mr. Richorson shot
two strings of 25 targets eaoh, and
broke 22 birds each time. Of the
local shooters, Mr. Munroe was
high gun.
Following are the scores made by
each contestant:

Dolly Varden Mine
Skipping Ore
The shriek of the locomotive
whistle is once again heard in the
valley of the Kitsault River, and it
is the sweetest sound we have
heard for a long time, The Dolly
Varden Mine commenced shipping
ore on Thursday. There is about
3000 tons lying at the mine, to
oome down. Some men went up
on Friday morning to work at the
mine; but no word has been received here regarding any development;
work in the mine, although it is
expected that development work
will be started before the summer;
is over. t
BELLEVUE MINE IS
SHOWING UP GOOD
SALMON CATCHING
CONTEST AT ANYOX
The Prize offered by the General:
Store for the biggest salmon
oaught this spring, has been won
by that wonderful fish charmer,
Mr. Jack Cloke. He not only'
caught the biggest fish, but he also
landed 23 more. Making a total
of 24 altogether...: , -
Mr. Ed. Hannau won the booby;
prize, with a monster of the deep,;
weighing one and a half pounds.;.
Ed. probably thinks the little one's, spending  it on   luxurious   office
are sweeter. equipment in Vancouver, like so
The contest  has  been  full  of) many Stock Mining Companies are
excitement since the fishing season' wont to do'
Mr. W. B. Leavens, of Vancouver
one of the directors, and the leading stockholder in the Alice Arm
Holdings Co,, has been at the
Bellevue Mine, on the Illiance River
for the past week, making a
thorough inspection of the mine.
He is very pleased with the general
outlook at the mine, which was
much better than he had expected,
and he is very optimistic as to its
future. They have ran through
60 feet of low grade ore in tunnel,
ore was encountered in the cross
cut, and a good grade of ore has
recently been struck in one of the
drifts. Mr. Crossland, a prominent
geologist of Vancouver, is now at
the Bellevue Mine, and will make
a thorough survey of the mine and
surrounding district, and if his
report is satisfactory, 15 men will
be employed all through the summer doing development work.
No .work is now being done
underground, stripping the leads
and open cutting on the surface
being undertaken instead.
It has been the policy of  the
company to go slow until they find
out what kind of a mine they have,
and also to put the money sub
scribed into the ground, instead of
began early in the year. It is a
fine sport, requiring lots of patience;
and skill, and it has afforded lotsj
of amusement and friendly rivalry
for those engaged.

contestants:

-   ALICE ARM NOTES
It would be a lot better for the
mining industry if other mining
companies followed the policy of
the Alice Arm Holdings Co., and
spent their money on development
work, instead of spending it on
Granville and Hastings ' streets.

and encourage others to take up
the game.

Francisco, came down from the
upper Kitsault on Monday evening.
Mr. Erich and Mr. Evindson spent

Vanguard, Moose, and Homestake
Mines, the Homestake is situated
at the Kitsault Glacier, and Mrs.
Erich accompanied them, being
one of the few women to tread
upon the glacier, it was a novel
experienoe to her and she enjoyed
it thoroughly, the day being perfect
Mr. Erioh was greatly impressed
with the mineral wealth of the
KitBault River Valley, and hopes
it will be his good luck to pay
another visit here this summer.
Power was turned on at the
hydro-electric plant, constructed by
the Taylor Engineering Co. last
summer, at the Wolf Mine, while

If another plebiscite could be
taken to test public sentiment in
respect of the open sale of beer
and the lighter variety of wines, it
is probable that there would be a
majority in favor of such a plan.
Many people who are not the
slightest bit interested in the use of
alcoholic stimulants are of the
opinion that a comparatively unrestricted distribution of the less
potent kind of intoxicating liquid
would reduce the use of stronger
beverages. All this may be quite
true. But the fact remains that
the Liquor Control Act definitely
provides that intoxicating liquor
shall be sold only by the official
vendor at a Government Store.
Very naturally this has no relation
whatever to liquor purchased outside the province and imported
under Dominion privilege. Section
twenty-six of the new law reads
as follows:
"Except as provided by this Act,
no person shall, within the Province, by himself, his clerk, servant,
or agent, expose or keep for sale,
or directly or indirectly or upon
any pretence, or upon any device,
sell or offer to sell, or in consideration of the purchase or transfer
of any property, or for any other
consideration, or at the time of
the transfer of any property, give
to any other person any liquor."
While the foregoing section is
self explanatory it is further provided that neither a vendor nor a
person acting in any capacity for
him shall sell liquor in any other
place or at any other time or otherwise than as authorized by the Act
and the regulations affecting it. In
other words a restaurant, a grocery
establishment, a club, a stationety
store, or other form of vending
agency must not expose any kind
of liquor for sale. In view of this
precise and definite provision, and
more especially in the light of the
decisive verdict of the Legislature
in session, how can it be argued
that either the Liquor Control
Board or the Government has one
ounce of authority to change the
statute without first having obtained
the permission of the elected representatives of the people.?
There is nothing in the Act
which may lead to speculation upon
whether any particular grocery
store, or any particular ice cream
establishment, or any particular kind
of club, might prevail upon the
authorities to train the blind eye
upon infraction of Section twenty
six, and if it is necessary to partio
ularize upon the interpretation of
the prohibition and what it includes
Section forty-six is as definite as
could be and reads as follows:
"No person other than a government vendor shall sell or deal in
any liquid known or described as
beer or near-beer or by any name
whatever commonly used to describe malt or brewed liquor."
It is easy to understand that a
number of the ex-Service clubs
would prefer to retain the privileges
which were theirs under the Prohibition Act. So would the jitney
bars, and so would the various type
of "soft drink" establishments. But
the law does not permit. If the
clubs prefer to test the strength of
the Act in a friendly manner so
well and so good. It can be said
at the outset, however, that neither
of the Veterans' organizations in
this city is desirous of doing anything except the right thing. Their
case has plenty of support; but it
looks as if it could not succeed
until the Act is changed.—Victoria
Daily Times.
Mr. W. A. Williams
is now in Nevada
British Columbia friends of Mr.
W. A. Williams, formerly assistant
general manager of the Granby
Consolidated Mining, Smelting &
(Power Co., Ltd. will be interested
■to learn that he is again engaged
in a big mining project.
1 After leaving the province, Mr.
Williams went to Los Angeles,
where he became associated with a
large syndicate which will develop
a gold and copper property at
Goldfield.s, Nevada. Half a million'
dollars will be expended, on initial
development work. One shoot
runs $20 a ton in gold and the vein
is lOt) feet wide.
Mr. Williams was with 'the
Granby Co. for' 18 years. He
built the.smelters at Grand Forks
and tit Anyox. His,family is still
residing in Vancouver.
Alice Arm has taken on a new
lease of life, according to one of the
big Prince Rupert Daily Papers,
Well! Weill we did'nt yet notice
anyone getting excited over the
Homestake Mine commencing operations. Wait a little while Prince
Rupert and we may give you something real big to publish.
Father of a Well-known Anyox
Resident Passes Away
The many friends of Mr. J.
Esplih, of Anyox, will be sorry to
hear that his Father passed away
on June 30th., at his home in
Edmonton, where he was in the
employ of the Hudson "Bay "Co.
He leaves a wife and two sons in
Edmonton, and a married daughter who is living in Detroit, Mich.

Prohibitionists are on
The War Trail
Bert Kergin's enthusiastic dec
laration in the legislature when the
moderation Bill was under debate,
that his constituents wished "whiskey to flow like water," sounded
well and evoked cheers at the time.
Unfortunately the phrase aoted
like a number of carpet tacks placed by a merry naughty boy points
upward on the chairs of the prohibitionists. It made them sit up and
take notice. They have brooded
over it ever since. At last they
have hatched out an idea—a plan
of vengeance. They have discovered that under the Canada Temperance Act any town or district
can declare for local option. So
after' a few weeks of the operation
of the Moderation Aot to restore
the parched taste of the Atlinites
for "the real old stuft;" the Prohibitionists are to invoke this law,
thus taking a holy revenge upon
all the electorate of the Atlin district who applauded Bert's remark,
and also upon those who didn't.—
Recourses Monthly.
In commenting on the above
if the worst comes to the worst,
and the prohibitionists cut ofl our
stimulants, as they say they will,
our only salvation is to proclaim a
republic and make our own laws,
including the "free as water" one.

ANYOX FOOTBALL
The game between the Elk's and
Mine teams, on Friday, July 8th.,
was one of the best games of the
season, and resulted in a win for
the velvet horns, by 4 goals to 1.
The Elk's are now in the same
position as the smelter, with 10
points each.
The star players in Friday's
game for the mine were Ritohie.
McDonald, and Wroe for the mine,
and Farre, Nixon, Beaton, and Cy.
and Dick Greenwell for the smelter.
The latter made a most spectacular
single-handed run through all oppo.
sition, for the full length of the
field, and finished by landing the
pigskin in the net.
ANYOX BASEBALL
Bears are now Holding
'em up on the Beach
Mr. and Mrs. A. Crone, and Mr
and Mrs. Bardwell, of Anyox, were
out on a motor launch excursion,
a few days ago, and having trouble
with their engine, not far from
home, Paddy got ashore and started to beat it for town to prooure a
tow. In the meantime someone
came to the rescue of the derelict,
and started the engine, and it was
just as well they did, for Paddy on
his errand of mercy along the beach
had encountered two black bears,
and not seeming very sociable or
inclined to make room for Paddy
to pass, he wisely re-traced his
steps, and like the story book,
everything ended very happily.

The Mine and Smelter teams
opened the second half of the baseball league on Monday, in the presence of a large number of fans.
The game was interesting from
start to finish. For several innings
the scores stood even, both sides
using every effort to get ahead of
their opponents.
The smelter, took the lead in the
fifth innings, the soore being 8 to 4,
which looked to many like the way
the game would finish; but the
the mine team who play a grand
up-hill game, took the wind out of
the smelter sails, by bagging five
more runs, thereby finishing victors
with the score 9 to &
The declaration made by our
local member of the legislature,
Bert Kergin, that his constituents
'wished the whisky to flow as free
as water down the oreeks" looks
like becoming famous. The disciples
of the milk bottle for miners will
never forgive our popular member
for speaking his mind and also the
wishes of a big majority of his constituents.
In a recent film one of the characters:
is skinned alive. The realism is rather
marred by not representing him as a
taxpayer.

two dollars and fifty cents a year.

Prominent Geologist
To Survey the
Bellevue Mine
Mr. J. F. Crossland of Vancouver, a British Columbia Consulting
Engineer'-.and geologist of prominence, arrived in Alice Arm, on
Monday, for the purpose of making
a thorough survey of the Bellevue
Mine, which is situated on the
Illiance River. He will also look
into the Economic Geology of the
surrounding district. If, through
the results of his investigations he
is able to present a favorable report
there will be no difficulty in securing the necessary capital to equip
the mine, to bring it to a successful productive stage.
Mr. Crossland is considered very
conservative, and his judgement is
highly valued, having developed
several mines from the prospective
to the profitable productive stage,
and he has acted in a consulting
capacity to several of the prominent
mining concerns* both in Great
Britain and on this continent.
Mr. Crossland  has had world-
Dominion Day Sports
At Anyox
Much to our regret, we were
unable to give a detailed report of
the July 1st. celebration at Anyox,
in last week's issue. That it was
a glorious day for Anyox, is admitted by everyone. Everything
passed off without a hitch, the full
programme was carried out with
the exception of the speed boat
race, and everyone spent an enjoyable day.
The Indian Concert Band, consisting of 24 instruments was one
of the great attractions, as it is
seldom the citizens of the smelter
town have a chance to listen to a
brass band. They played throughout the day at various places in the
town
The sports started at 9 a.m.
with a marathon race from the
hotel to the mine and return. The
water sports then followed, and
were witnessed by a large and
enthusiastic crowd. The harbor
was alive with boats gaily decked
out in bunting. The tennis match
Anyox vs. Prince Rupert, and a
football match between two teams
concluded the morning sports.
The a"fternoon sports commenced
with a baseball game between
Prince Rupert and Anyox, and
resulted in a win for Anyox by 11
runs to 6. The field sports then
took up the rest of the afternoon.
The evening sports consisted of
boxing bouts, which were staged in
the open air at the-ball park, some
good preliminaries were pulled off
by local talent, and then the main
bout was staged between Farrell
of Prince Rupert and Gibson of
Anyox. Farrell was the aggressor
from the start, and out-boxed
Gibson all through, finally knocking him out in the 3rd. round.
Over 800 persons witnessed the
boxing bouts, and the Greenville
band rendered musical selections.
■■'\
The Billiard   match   between
Prince Rupert and Anyox.  which
was played in the evening, resulted
in a win for Anyox, some very close
finishes  were  witnessed,  but the
result was never in doabt and the
Anyox team won by a comfortable
margin.
Following are the names of the
teams, and the scores:
Prince Rupert; G, Mcllmoyle,
J. Sedan, F Aldridge, D. Greenwell.
Anyox; J. Ellis, M. W. Barbour,
Geo. Round, W. Jones.
Anyox total points, 963.
;  Prince Rupert    "   903.
Majority for Anyox, 60 points.
The Prince Rupert team expressed themselves delighted with their
visit and treatment, and extended
an invitation to the Anyox team
to play a return match at their
annual fair in September.
The day finished with a grand
ball, held in the Recreation Hall.
All the devotees of the art were
there to'tread a few steps, and the
dance was carried well on into the
next day. The hall was beautifully decorated, and the music was
furnished by the excellent A. C.
L. orchestra. Everyone wont home
with the satisfaction of knowing
that they had spent a very enjoyable day.
Great credit is due to the Anyox
Community League, in carrying
out such a big programme without
a hitch, and special mention should
be made of Mr. F. F. Brown, the
live secretary of the League, and
also that "prince of sport," Mr. J.
Sherman, for the hard work they
put in that day to make the celebration a success.
