I Dominion Day
Sports at Anyox
Big Celebration
Dominion Day at Anyox, on
j Saturday last, was a day long to
be remembered. An extensive,
j programme of events was arranged
| by the Community League, starting
j with a Marathon race at 9 am.
[every hour of the day was interesting, until midnight brought a most
[ enjoyable dance to a close.
Baseball was the most important
feature,   owing  to   the  fact,   no
doubt, that the local wielders of
the willow were to test their skill
against an aggregation from across
the international line, from Ketchikan   The Alaskans arrived at 4
! ai-m., an unearthly hour for visiting.
The-team, were accompanied by
j their wives and lady friends,  who
i though few in number were strong
f in quality as boosters.
The first game was oalled for
110.30   a.m.   and   umpire   Harold
Davis had in started off on time.
j H. Stacpoole,   of  Ketchikan was
base umpire, and in the., evening
ga-mo these -positions- were - reversed.
AhyoTwefe^Ke winners in both
encounters.   Anyox had the better
of the Alaskans in speed, being a
more youthful team, but what the
visitors lacked in speed they made
up for in experience.
Casey, the visitors oatcher was
J carrying too much weight for a
base runner, but was a wise old'
I dog and did-not miss many chances
when  it  came  to    pegging   an
I Anyoxite out at bases.   He was at
U.11 times smiling and made a hit
with the fans.
For Ketchekan, Harris's work at
[ short-stop  and   Miller's . batting
■ were of a high'standard' and seldom
I seen in .these parts.   Cy. Greenwell
was the best batter for. the home
team. ,   "^        .    -■-       .
The afternoon started with a
football match, married men vs.
singles. It was a hard contested
game and the gentlemen of double
harness came off victors by 2 goals
tol.
The dance in the evening made
an excellent finish to a perfect day,
and the Elk's Hall was taxed ■ to
the limit for dancing space. The
musio was excellently rendered by
Mrs. Buzzelle, W. Overand and J.
Tinmouth Piper J. McLennan
obliged with the skirl of the pipes,
to whioh some of the nimble members of the~ company danced the
Highland Sehottisohe.
There was a.great deal of work
attached to the arranging and
providing such an extensive programme, and the A. C. L. Council
and assisting .committee are
deserving of praise for an excellent
day's entertainment.
Owing to lack of space the names
of the prize winners of the field
sports are held over until next
week.   '"'.,
Mining News of
Alice Arm
G. W. Morley, who owns considerable mining property in the
vicinity of the town of Alice Arm,
has already done considerable development work on several of his
properties and also has considerable
work planned for this summer and
next winter.
He has built a trail from tidewater to the Crackerjack group of
eight olaims on Roundy Creek, so
that paok horses can now be taken
up to the property. These claims
were highly spoken of by Mr. G.
Clothier, district mining engineer,
in the AnnualReport of the Minister of Mines for 1921. A grab
sample taken by him on the
property, assayed $2 in gold and
$142.5 ozs. silver per ton. This
property is at an elevation, of
2300 feet and about 1| miles from
tidewater in an air line.
Mr. Morley has also done considerable work on the Sunrise and
Lone Star groups, on MoGrath
mountain, which properties are
within easy distance of tidewater.
Ri'tL, these properties are shoyving
greatpromiseand high values have
been obtained. The ore at the
Sunrise runs high in zinc, samples
of which have < assayed $85 with
$12 in gold and 16 ozs. silver per
ton. The ore also carries considerable lead.
The Lone Star, which is at a
lower elevation has had considerable work done on it during the
past two years, one tunnel 70 feet
has been driven, one 50 feet,-, one 30
feet, and one 15 feet. It is claimed
that an enormous body of ore has
been located on this property. The
ore runs high in lead and samples
have assayed from 6 to 370 ozs.
silver and from $8 to $35 gold, per
ton. Mr. Morley intends driving
oil the 70 ft. tunnel on this property at an early date.
James Calvin, who was down for
supplies this week from the Blinker
Hill group; on,Haystack mountain,
near the La Rose, states that the
property is looking very promising.
A considerable amount of stripping
has been done this year, and a
tunnel is now. being started to
orossout the ore body, which has
exceedingly good surface showings,
The ore on -this property runs. 30
per cent, lead. One hundred
ounces of silver per ton have been
assayed and also gold values varying from $4 to $12...-;.
Ralph Ingraham has commenced
driving a new tunnel on the Black
Diamond group, at Copper Creek,
and is already in 6 feet., The
tunnel is just above the high water
line of the Illiance River. Mr.
Ingraham recently acquired an
interest iii the property.
Miles Donald is driving tunnel
on the Standard gftrap on MoGrath
mountain.
Weekly Meeting of
Community League
Council, July 5th.
The regular meeting of the Community League Council was held in
the Recreation Hall, on Wednesday evening, July 5th. Those
present were: President Williscroft, Secretary-Treasurer C. J.
Lowry, Councillors Mrs. MacKay,
Messrs. Barr, Armour, Simpson
and Roberts.
The Secretary reported that
letters of thanks would go forward
to the various firms who contributed donations to the field sports on
July 1st.
The President spoke of an interview with Geo< J. Jessop,. in
connection with his occupation of
the Maple Bay Cafe premises. Mr.
Jessop offered to pay the League a
rental of $25 a month, while in
occupation of these premises.
The incident in connection with
the visit of the Ketchikan party
and their friends to the Maple Bay
Cafe after the dance of the evening
of the 1st. was mentioned, the secretary telling of; the complaints
made to him oil the following day,
and that an investigation; had been
made, which resulted in turning
over the control of the cafe prem
ises to the Granby Co. by the
Community League, the League to
get the monthly rental as reimbursement for their equity in the
building.
Mr. Warwick, Chairman of the
Summer Camp Committee, who
was unable to attend the meeting,
asked the secretary beforehand if
the departure of the first party
could be postponed for another
week, the party Jo leave on the
15th of July, when a start would
surely be made, and that the secretary prooeed to Alice Arm as
soon as convenient to make all
final arrangements. It was then
deoided that the secretary visit
j Alice Arm, on Sunday, July. 9th.
The Community building plans
were discussed at considerable
length, and it was thought advisable to post the plans as furnished
by Mr. J. Pinder-Moss in the
Library for a period oi two weeks.
Iti this connection a Mr. Barclay
was introduced to the meeting by
Mr. Armour, who spoke at some
length on the work of; the organizations, at Copper Cliff, Ontario,
where conditions were similar to
Anyox. There the dues were $2
a month, and all activities were
charged for as well, but the institutions were splendid and the support
was generous. There was no suggestion ■ of compulsion. It was
decided to postpone further discussion and bring the matter up again
two weeks from the 5th.
Mr. Simpson introduced the
question of defending the cup won
by the "Wayward Girl" last year
and< asked the meeting to appoint
somedne to interview Mrs. Munroe,
and find out if it would not be
possible to race the boat at Prince
Rupert on Labor Day. Mr.' Simpson and the secretary were appointed as a committee to make the
necessary enquiries.

whole school shows marked improvement in every way, since the
commencement of the term, when
Miss Boa coinmenoed teaching.

home in Montreal, much to the"
regret of the citizens of the town,

Dolly Varden Decision
Given to G. Wingfield
With a view of acquiring, and
working the Dolly Varden mine
and all the subsidiary equipment,
including the Dolly Varden Railway, the Wolf mine, power houses
and boats, George Wingfield Beno
banker and influential mine operator, has obtained an order nisi for
foreclosure of the property.
The order arises from a mortgage
of $150,000 given in 1916 to the
Dolly Varden Mines Ltd., at the
rate 6 per cent, per annum. This
mortgage was assumed by the
Taylor Mining Co. when the property came under their control in
1919.
Papers have been served on the
Taylor Engineering Company, the
Dolly Varden Mining Company,
the Taylor Mining Company, C.
M. Rolston, trustee for the bondholders, and H. C. Chiene, trustee
for the oreditors, but none of these
offered opposition to the proposed
action.

Work Progressing
at the Anyox Dam
The excellent weather conditions
of the past few weeks have been
very favorable for the construction'
work at the new dam No. 2, located about four miles from tide
water, on Falls Creek.
The .preliminary clearing and
exoavation work' is progressing
well, and the completion of the
structure this season seems assured.
Approximately 150 me'n are now
engaged on the work.
The supply railroad is operating
very successfully and large quantities of supplies are being taken
daily to the dam site. Lumber for
building forms, etc. and cement
and steel for the concrete dam are
now ih readiness. -The concrete
mixing plant, with bins for gravel,
sand, cement and~coarse boulders
is ready for use, and the first forms
for concrete are now being placed
in position. The mixing and pouring of concrete will start in a very
few days and will continue
uninterruptedly until the completion of the dam this fall.
Gravel and sand will toe obtained
from the bed of Falls Creek, about
one quarter of a mile above the
dam site, and carried from the
washing and screening plant to the
mixing plant by railroad. From
the mixing plant an serial cable-
way carries the concrete' to its
destination in,the dam. By means
of this cableway the forms and
steel reinforcement are raised and
located.
The bed of the stream on one
side has been uncovered by means
of a coffer dam, in order to erect
that portion of the structure which
is in the stream bed. Later, the
flow will" be again diverted, and
the other side rendered accessible.
Above the dam the Granby Co.
is making a survey of the site of
the reservoir, which is slightly
over four miles in length.
Golskeish Mine
Again Operating
The Golskeish mine, situated at
Deep Bay, about three miles from
Anyox, has again resumed operations after a close down of some
months. Mr. H. Heidman is again
in charge of operations, having
arrived from Vancouver two weeks
ago.
A new cylinder for the semi-
deisel oil engine and a new hoist is
being installed. It is the intention
of the company to concentrate on
development work this summer,
with a view of proving up are
bodies and later, shipments will be
made to Anyox smelter as was
done in the past.
The majority of the stock of the
Golskeish Mines, Ltd. is held in
Vancouver. The financial position
of the company is in first-class
condition. All the equipment at
the mine has been paid for from
ore shipments, and the development
work being done this year should
prove a valuable asset to the
company. ■^■^i^a^M

Night Schools for
Northern B. C.
Mr. Pinder-Moss, organizer of
the Granby Bay Polytechnic,
which operated so successfully in
Anyox last year, has outlined a
scheme of night school work,
which embraces the whole of
Northern British Columbia, with
Prince Rupert as the headquarters.
The people of Anyox are familiar
with the operations of the Granby
Bay Polytechnic during the past
winter, and the immense amount of
useful knowledge acquired by tHe
students attending the various
classes. It is due to the success of
the Anyox classes that the suggestion has been made to broaden the
scope so as to embrace all the
towns in the north, both large and
small, so that everyone will have a
chance to attend night schools and
add to their store of learning during the coming winter. Hitherto
the residents of the large towns
and cities were the only people
who could attend night schools,
but with the above .scheme in
operation the inhabitants of the
small towns will have a chance to
spend the long winter evenings in
a manner beneficial to themselves,
and acquire knowledge that will
be useful in everyday life. There
were in Anyox last year 26
distinct classes, with a membership of about 240 students, or 12
per cent, of the whole population.
The different subjects taught were:
Typewriting, Millinery, Machine
Shop, Elementary English, Building
Construction,   Navigation,   Book-
; keeping,    French,     Dressmaking,
: Steam Engineering, Carpentery
and Furniture Making, Tinsmith-
ing, First Aid, Shorthand, Chemistry, Home Nursing, Fancy Work,
Mineralogy, Mechanical Drawing,
! Elementary English grade 2, Public
Speaking, Spanish, Geology, First
Aid, Dietetics, Mathematics. All
the instructors were local men and
women, well trained in the subject
'. they were teaching. While the
smaller towns such as Alice Arm,
would probably only be able to
operate from 4 to 6 / classes, yet
the   advantages derived   by   the
; students would be as great as the
< larger centres. This is an age of
learning, and it is hoped the small
communities will support the move-
I ment.
Naas Valley Notes
A. F. Priestley is building a
rooming house for the accomodation of the increasing number
of visitors coming into the valley.
The Indians are building a hotel
which will contain twenty-two
rooms, at Gitlakda, about two
miles above Aiyansh."'.
Cutting hay will commence
throughout the valley in the course
of a few days.
The vegetable gardens and grain
crops are feeling the effects of the
continued dry spell, and a rain
storm is badly needed.
Government road and trail work
for this summer is now completed.
Six miles have been stumped out on
the Grease Trail towards the Cranberry River, and about two miles
on the Seax River trail. The trail
has also been repaired from Grease
Harbor to Quinatah River.
Mrs. Nations, of Prince Rupert
was in the valley this week, in
speeting mineral claims staked fop|
her by Indians at Tchitin River.
Mrs. Nations was accompanied on
her trip by Mrs. Jackson.
Well,  without the hard   wosfc.. his
wages are nil,      '
And with this thought in mind he
works with a will:
The boyi? in the camp are all nations
and creeds,
And as he expected the boss was a
•   Swede.
/,
When three month's are past, he feels
mighty prime;
He goes to the office and asks  for
his time:
Then oh! for the city with all it's gay
lights;
The  laughter,'  the fun,   and    the
pretty sights.
The Anyox Orchestra have acquired two new musicians. Mr.
Jas. Varnes and Mr. J. Tinmouth
arrived from North Vancouver last
week, where they were members of
the Wallace Shipyards Band.

THE MUCKER'S
DOWNFALL    -
Goodbye to the cities with all its gay
lights;
The laughter and fun? and all pretty
sights;
The "stake" that he once had must
once more be made;
So there's nothing else for it, but to
work on the grade.
With blankets on shoulder and grip in
his hand;
Outside the ship's office he takes up
his stand;
He stoops to his suitcase, its safer to
lock it;
Then rattles the last forty cents in
his pocket.
He is going to work at the Anyox
dam;
To help make the grade to build the
tram;
He don't just know what the job is
like,
But he  hopes to  make   a   lucky
strike.
He stands on the deck with a feeling
of leisure:
Then takes a last look at the scenes
of his pleasure;
fie arrives at the dam camp at some
hour of the night,
And the smell of the code shack is
sure a delight.
He longs for a feed, but without any
warning;
The cook's welcqme is, you must
wait until morning;
He starts once again with the shovel
and pick;
But the thought of eight hours sure
makes him feel sick.
