Pee Arm Citizens'
Association Meets
Important Matters Discussed
The   monthly  meeting of the
lice   Arm Citizens', Association
as held in the Anglican Church
Building,   on  Saturday   evening
J^ugust 26th.   A good number of
hembers   were   present, showing
.hat an interest is being taken in
;he work of the organization for
|;he welfare of the town.
|  President  Cameron,   who   has
been at the Naas Biver for the
Ipast two months and so could not
ttend the last two meetings, again
pcoupied the Chair.
The minutes at. the last meeting
were read by the secretary, Mr. T.
W. Falconer, and approved by the
[meeting.
A 'letter was read from the Minister of Lauds in regard to the
killing of timber in this locality
(by the  gas of. the Granby Co's
melter at Anyox, and the minister
•equested the Association to furnish
more data on the matter.     Mr.
Kiel then stated that since the last
meeting it had been proven that
the timber at the head of the Arm
was not being killed so. much by
the gas from Anyox as by a small
moth or beetle   which   was   the
|cause-of the trees dying.   Samples
of the needles had been examined
Iby the Forestry Dept. and it was
pound that this insect so prevalent
I'm many other parts of the province
Iwas also here in this locality, and
they requested that larger samples
ti0-the needles be sent, so that the
■identity of the insect responsible
■for the damage may be fully estab
llished.   Messrs. Biel, Morrison and
iMatheson were appointed a com
Iniittee by the meeting to collect
(samples aud forward them to the
I Forestry Department.
It was. felt by the meeting that
I the samples of ore for the Alice
[ Arm exhibit at the British Columbia   House  in-London were not
[ coming in'fast enough and after
i some discussion it  was   resolved
. that   the  matter  be left to the
. executive oommittee, and fpr them
to devise ways and means of getting samples of ore from different
properties so that the shipment can
be made this year,     '
President Cameron said that on
his recent visit to Prince Bupert,
he was asked to do what he could
towards sending a rook drilling
team to Priiioe'Rupert to take part
in the contests during the exhibition week. It was deoided that the
-secretary' write for full particulars.
Mr. Biel made a motion that the
secretary write to Mr. Fred Stork,
M.P. and point out to him.the
necessity of having a float built
here to aooomodate small boats, as
the one that was here is now
wrecked, and that the float be
built if possible before... the oold
weather sets in.
The meeting then adjourned.
Mine and Elks
Play Close Game
Mine again Win by 1 Run
On Sunday, August,27th, the
fans were treated to an excellent
game of baseball when the Mine
and the Elks met for the third
game of the series. Both teams
got one tally in the third innings,
and the Elks collected a lead of
three in' the next two innings,
Corokle of the Mine, at bat in the
fourth"with two men on bases, hit
out a beauty of a long fly to left
field whioh looked like bringing
two men home, but Bag will running at full speed reached up with
his left hand and picked it just as
they pick apples, which returned
the side. Mealey went into the
box for the Mine and pitched a
great game, holding the Elks down
to a no run game from the time he
started 'twirling, -In the fifth
inning, with two men on bases for
the Mine, Brown came to bat, and
he did the same as he did in the
previous game, bringing two men
home and snatching from the Elks
\vhaf looked like another victoryv
Pete Draudson pitched a great
game for the Elks, whioh was
worthy of better results. John
Bagwill had a great night, and it
was also his last game in Anyox.
He did the most effective hitting
for the Elks and also the most
spectacular piece of fielding that
has been seen in Anyox for some
time. Cody and Corokle looked
after their end of the game behind
the bat, and both did effective
work with the willow. The Elk's
batters were finding Ferguson, but
he also oan be relied upon- for a
sure hit when he steps to bat.
The.batteries were about "a par,
but it must be admitted that the
Mine has an advantage over the
Elks in their infield.
The score was: Mine 5, Elks 4.-
Umpiresi'C. J. Lowry and Ed.
Wall.
Trail Work on
Kitsault Valley
Work on the improvement of the
trails of the upper Kitsault is now
under way. Mr- J. Wells being in
charge of operations.
The work done this fall should
prove a great advantage to mining
property owners in the. upper
Kitsault Valley. ■ The old switohr
back trail above Camp 8 is to be
cut out, and a bridge constructed
lower down the river, thus eliminating the Dolly Varden snow and
rook slide.
The length of new trail to be
built will be approximately 2500
feet and the new bridge to be built
will be 175 feet in length and will
be 60 feet above high water. The
trail will be built on a wagon road
grade and the bridge will be built
wide enough to accomodate teams.
• It is the intention to finish the
work thisfall.
There has been much agitation
for the past two years that this
work be done, and it is hoped that
the trail now being built will soon
be improved to a ..wagon road, so
that ore can be sleighed to the end
of the Dolly Varden Railway in
winter, and motor trucks used in
the summer. The Dolly Varden
Railway only touches.-the edge of
the rich mineral zone of the upper
Kitsault, and it is vital to the
future prosperity of the country
that a good wagon road be constructed as far up the valley as
possible, and the road should ultimately be extended to the Kitsault
Glacier.    <
Funeral Service for
the late Mr. Bromley
A funeral Service for the late
Mr. W. H. Bromley, was held last
week before the departure of the
body on the Prince George for interment at Kent, Washington, was
held in the Anglican _ Churoh,
followed by an Elk's Service on
the wharf. " A large number of
people were present at both Services, the deceased being a highly
esteemed citizen. He was a member of Anyox Lodge No. 47, B. P.
O. Elks. Rev. J. B. Gibson officiated at both Services. The pall
bearers were: Messrs. G. Leslie,
W. Corbett, W. Befctinson, J, .Weir
D. McKenzie, J. Parker.

Mining is Speculative
The Selukwe Gold Mining Co.,
of London, when they termed
themselves adventurers in their
refusal to accept a million dollars
for their holdings in the Portland
Canal, again brought to the front
the speculative nature of mining.
Those who have invested money
in undeveloped mines know that it
is highly speculative. They are
willing to spend a few dollars in
the hope of realizing a fortune, and
if the first venture is not successful
they should not blame the mining
industry, hut try again, for the
industry has no use for those who
look at the past. There is no
better chance to make big money
than to invest it in a mining property which has the earmarks of a
good mine, and what may be just
a "hole in the ground" today, may
be worth a million dollars tomorrow. From time immemorial
wealth has been extracted from the
ground and those who received the
benefit were those who had the
nerve to invest their money at the
commencement of development.
Confidence in the country; in the
property you are interested in,
optimism and good common sense,
are the key notes to successful
mining. There is not a cleaner
way of accumulating wealth than
extracting it from the ground, it
injures no one, and is of benefit to
the whole world. ' Big mines are
awaiting development all around us
in this part of the province, and
those'that are willing to speculate
will be the one's to reap the rich
reward.
Night Schools for
the North.
The Northern Polytechniclnsti-
tute of B. C. is now an established
fact, and we hope the organization
will be successful in its endeavours,
it is hoped that the smaller towns
in the north, as well as the large
towns will take up the matter of
night schools this coming winter.
It is for the smaller communities to
now take action so that classes can
be arranged for the winter months,
and once the schools are commenced and the benefits to be
obtained is shown, there is no
doubt that they will be a permanent institution,

Northern Polytechnic
Institute Organized
It has beeii decided by the
School Boards concerned to adopt
the name of "The Northern Polytechnic Institute of B. C. for the
new institution of vocational and
continuation school classes.
The Anyox School Board has
agreed to merge the Granby Bay
Polytechnic, which was organized
last year, in the larger organization, and it is expected that the
other boards in the district will
shortly take advantage of such an
establishment and merge their
continuation sohool interests iu The
Northern Polytechnic Institute.
The offices of the N. P. I. are in
the Wallace Block, Third Avenue,
Prince Rupert, and the Institute is
under the Governance of the Associated School Boards of the
Northern District wherever N. P.
I..classes are to be establisned.
The N. P. I. is under.the Directorship of Mr. John Pinder-Moss,
through whom all business will be
transacted, and who is responsible
for the conduct of the classes to the
Associated School Boards.
, The administrative expense connected with night schools and
continuation classes, will not fall
entirely upon each separate school
board, (as has been' the case
previously.) Wherever N. P. I.
classes are established in future,
such expense will be divided
between the Associated School
Boards proportionally, based upon
the relative populations of the
towns and districts.
The classes will be open to adults
over fifteen years of age aud will
be arranged in those subjects in
whioh the public are interested.
An important N P> !• feature
will be that enrolment cards will
be good wherever the Institute is
running classes, so that a student
will not be called upon to pay
twice for his instruction should
he happen to change his location.
Certificates, Diplomas, etc. will
also be issued to N. P. I. students,
irrespective of whether they have
taken their instruction in one or
more of the N. P. I. classes in the
district.
Granby Co. Makes
a New Record
All records for 'copper production
at the Granby Company's Smelter
were broken last July, the big plant
turning out over three million pounds
of copper matte. The production has
frequently been 2,700,000 to 2,800,000
pounds in a month, but never exceeded
three millions until last July.
Why a Million Dollar
Offer Was Refused
There is something naive about the
reasons given by the directors of the
Selukwe Gold Mining Company of
London, for their refusal of the recent
offer mode to them by the Premier
Gold Mines Limited, for the controlling interest in the property, known as
the B. C. Silver Mines, adjoining the
Premier Mine. At a recent meeting
of the Selukwe Gold Mining Company,
held in London, the chairman said:
"An offer has been made by American friends to purchase the Selukwe
Company's interest in a Canadian
mining euterprise. But being adventurers," continued the chairman, in
commenting upon the offer, "while
appreciating this proposal, we declined
to sell, as we can not thrive merely by
getting our money back."
The remark referred to the fact that*
the Selukwe Company is reputed to
have sold one million dollars of stock
in the B. O. Silver Mines, their control
of the stock being a 60 per cent, interest. The offer made by the Premier
people was for one million, which
explains the remark of the Selukwe
chairman.
The London Company is now engaged in developing the property, Mr. C.
A.Banks, who came out from England
to represent them, now being on the
property looking after operations.
It will be remembered that the
Premier Company acquired the minority interest in the property some
months ago.
