ANYOX TENNIS
NOTES
ANYOX BASEBALL
The mine team has again hit
their stride and by winning two
games this week, they are now
level with the other two teams^i'n
the League. Ed. Swanson is wearing a smile so big that he has'nt
time to shout through his megaphone. Even at that the rattling
of the Elks horns, and the fumes of
the Gas Eaters cannot stop* the
good work of the ground hogs.
All three teams, Smelter, Mine
and Elks, stand the same. Played
8.   Won 4.   Lost 4.
The all-star team which will
play against Prince Rupert on
Dominion Day is as follows:
P.    Ferguson & Draudson
C.   Geo. Greenwell
S. S.   F. Brown

Dillon's Gas Eaters are still undefeated, and with their lead of six
points over the other two teams,
they say they have driven in their
stakes on the top of the League.

Anyox Community
League Dances
The Dance held by the Com'
munity League, in the Hotel,
Ball Room, on the evening of
June 22nd., was a huge success.
It was attended by a large crowd
who had the pleasure of dancing
to the music of the new orchestra of the Anyox Community
League, whose playing earned
the applause of all present, and
they are popularly declared to
be an acquisition to Anyox.
The League are to be congratulated on the find of such an
aggregation of first class musicians.
ALICE ARM BASEBALL
« In the best game of the season,
the local team defeated camp eight
by the score of 11 to 9r In the last
of the ninth innings, with the
camp leading by two runs, Willis-
croft lost control for a moment and
soaked home-run MoCauley, which
paved the way for a. batting rally
by the home team. An error by
Morrison, the Camp's star first
baseman prevented the game going
an extra innings,
See Al. Falconer for Freight
and Pack Horses.
Norie of those who play tennis
and entered the Mixed Doubles one
Day Tournament on Sunday, regretted their action in having done
so. It was impossible to foretell
which couple would be the winners
until the last game was played, but
our promising young star, Stepney,
and Mrs. Munroe, managed to win
first place by a margin of one point
from Miss Milligan and Harold
Davis, who were followed by seven
other teams with only 14 points
between them.
Everyone of the players without
exception, enjoyed themselves to
the limit, and apart from the
sociability engendered by the fact
that every couple had to play every
other couple, some very' interesting
games were witnessed and enjoyed.
Unfortunately   Mrs.    Manning
was forced to retire early in the
game owing to her foot gWing out,
and Mrs. Parsons very sportingly
agreed to play in her place.    From
then on, Hughies ambition was to
smash his opponents averages, and
in many .cases he, gave lots of them.
nervous prostration.
«
Mrs. Cutler's ambidexterous feats
have a weird effect at times, and
on many occasions she left her
opponents gasping at the unexpected angles taken by her returns.
Mrs. Budland played" particularly good tennis, and in the next
tournament if allowed the same
handicap ought to do very well.
George Lee, after a particularly
strenuous week of ladder games
combined with the fact that his
ankle played him false, was not
quite his brilliant self, and Miss
Stone in view of her profession
could'nt do other than she did and
play sympathetically.       i
Mrs. Highway is gradually getting more confidence in her play,
and is developing nicely, while her
partner has a particular fancy for
serving doubles—just a little mental weakness—he thinks that in
playing doubles, he ought to serve
doubles.
Miss McMillan and Ted Mahon
played surprising tennis, with the
accent on the surprising, but their
total score topped the 200 just the
same.
At the conclusion of play, Mrs.
Turner presented the prizes to the
winners, and Mrs. Munroe voiced
the wishes of all the players in
suggesting that a tournament be
held once a month.
Mr, Lewis called for a vote of
thanks to the secretary and committee, which brought to a close
the most popular and successful
tournament of the year.
The Romantic History
of the Esperanza Mine
The mine, locally known as the
Spanish or Esperanza Mine, was
located in 1903, by Mr. Frank
Roundy and partners. For some
years Mr. Roundy worked on the
property, and finally he was the
sole owner, with the exception of a
3/16 interest in the Alderbaron
claim, which Mr. W. Vaughan, of
Vancouver, had acquired from one
of the partners, in settlement of
a small debt.
Ii\ 1912, Capt. John Irving and
associates, acquired an option to
purchase the interest held by Mr.
Roundy in the property, and started development work. Mr. Roundy
received $15,000 in cash and there
was about $10,000 spent on development work, when Capt. Irving
got into financial difficulties, with
the result that the property was
sold, by auction, by the Sheriff, at
Prince Rupert. Pedro Salinas and
his brother Baldereno (locally
known as Baldy) who had. been
.^filMtyJ .°nJhejM;ojwr:tyj_ aiidjhad
about $275.00 wages due, attended
the sale,.and bid $200.00, which
was the only bid made, and for
which sum , they secured the
property.
Pedro' Salinas- and his brother
then came back to Alice Ann, and
started to do a little development
work. In .the meantime they had
sold a 14 per cent interest in their
holdings to Mr. Loftgrin, who
afterwards, worked with them at
the mine.
They worked for about eight
months, with no success as far as
finding any shipping ore was concerned, so they decided to quit, and
started to gather their tools together when they struck a small shoot
of good ore on the surface. Within six weeks they had taken out
over $8,000 worth ore from this
shoot. They continued development work and succeeded in finding
several other ore shoots, from which
they eventually extracted an additional $15,000 worth of ore.
About this time the property
looked very promising, and the
Granby Consolidated Mining, Smelting & Power Co., Ltd. made an
examination of -the property, and
secured an option to purchase the
mine for $100,000, with $10,000
cash. While negotiations were
going on prior to the date on
which the cash payment was due,
Pedro and the men who were
working for him were making
special efforts to get as much of the
ore in sight taken out of. the mine
and off the property before that
date. Pedro was not giving the
Granby Co. any more than he
could help. They succeeded in
doing what they tried to do in
taking all the ore in sight, with
the result that when the Granby
Co. sampled the property thoroughly, the sampling gave very low
returns and they decided not to
buy.
For some time after this, no
work was done and Pedro went to
Spain for a holiday. While he was
away Baldy decided to drive a cross
cut tunnel on a small quartz stringer, and after driving ti7 feet, he
struck a shoot of very high grade
ore. This'shoot, so far has a length
of over 100 feet, and averages about
8 inches in width. After striking
this ore and doing considerable
work, he was taken sick and
went to Prince Rupert Hospital.
One evening, he walked out of the
hospital and disappeared. His
bank book and some papers were
Jqund.on the wharf, and it is pre-,
sinned that he was delirious and
walked over the wharf. Pedro
was cabled for and came over front
Spain immediately, and took
charge of his brother's affairs.
Pedro was named sole heir in
liis brother's will, and on the will
being probated, became owner of
80 per cent interest in the mine.
He started sorting and sacking the
ore Baldy had taken out, which
amounted to 17| tons. This ore
was shipped to the Taconia smelter
and netted practically $35000.
Pedro made several attempts to
sell his interests but was unsuccessful. J. O. Tretheway offered him
§16,000 cash, or $10,000 cash on a
$30,000 option last November.
Pedro hesitated too long and lost
the opportunity. However, he
recently sold'out his interest to
Mr. E. Elge and his 'associates for
$15,000 cash.
He has bumped into the usual
climax of a mining deal however;—
as he is now being sued 10 per cent
commission by Vancouver brokers.
The property is ideally located,
being only1 twenty minutes walk
from the town of Alice Ann, and
is very promising looking. Development work has now been started,
and there will soon be another
shipping mine, added to the list of
Alice Arm mining properties.
Such is the history of the Esperanza mine. A property that was
bought at a sheriff's sale for $200.00,
from which was extracted $26,000
worth of ore and was finally sold
for $15,000 dollars cash.

Why we want a
Citizen's League.
The defunct Alice Arm Commercial Club is to be resuscitated and
brought to life under the title of The Alice Arm Citizen's League. The
Association died a natural death some time ago, through lack of interest
and moral support of the citizens of Alice Arm. It was inaugurated
by a few public spirited citizens, and after vainly trying to arouse local
interest, they got disgusted, and the association quietly and peacefully
passed away. To a person living on the outside in a live community
such a condition of affairs would be unbelievable, but we are sorry to
say that such is the case. A live mining town with such a bright
future as Alice Arm has got, is bound to have a Citizen's League to
further the interests of the town. Their duty is to meet at least once
or twice a month, and discuss problems as they arise, for the welfare
of the town. An instance can be given of the necessity of forming a
League, in regard to the government wharf this summer, if a few of the
citizens of the town had not called a meeting and forwarded telegrams
to Ottawa, reminding the government of their promise to build a wharf
the chances are, that there would not have been any wharf built here
this summer. Numerous problem's are arising all the time, and more
will arise in the future. There is the question of the Indian reserve to
be taken up with the Federal government, and an understanding
arrived at, so that we can have a town like any other civilized community, with straight streets, sidewalks, electric light, water and sewerage
systems. All these problems will be handled by the Citizens League,
and the quicker they are handled the better for us all, or Alice Arm for
the most of us will be just a pleasant memory. Prince Rupert has its
Board of Trade, Stewart has its Citizens League, Anyox has its
Community League, and it is up to the citizens of Alice Arm, if they
have the brains of a louse and the backbone of a jelly fish to organize
a Citizens League that will be second to none on the northern coast.
A public meeting, which will be duly adverti ed, will be called shortly,
and everyone living in Alice Arm will be expected to attend. Alice
Ann is just like any other small town or big city, it has got to be
advertised if it is going to live. If advertising is not good for a city
why does the cities of Philadelphia and Seattle advertise in the leading
journals on the other side of the line.? We are living in an age of
publicity, and Alice Arm has got to have its share or drop behind. We
cannot stand still, we either have to go forward or backwar|l, and it is
up to the citizens of Alice Arm themselves to a great extent, what they
do in that respect, It is the duty of everyone to help push the town
ahead, by standing on one side you are pulling back, for you are
throwing the whole burden on a few shoulders, which you know that
sooner or later is going to break down, and then comes the inevitable
"I told you so." Citizens of Alice Arm, your duty is plain, get behind
the League, for unity is strength.   United we stand, divided we fall.
The Alice Arm
Police Station.
As will be seen in the other columns of this paper, tenders are
being called for the new Police Station. Up to the present the plans
and specifications have not arrived at Alice Arm, nor has it been advertised in any of the local papers that tenders were be'ing called for.
Here is something we hope to see explained in the near future. Local
men are ready to tender on the building, provided they can examine
the plans and specifications. Local lumber is also cut here that could
be used to a great extent in the building.
Dominion Day Celebration
at Anyox.
On Dominion Day, July 1st., the Anyox Community League is
holding the biggest celebration ever held in the history of the camp.
We wish them the best'of weather and sincerely hope that success will
crown their efforts. The Anyox Community League has become a live
organization, and are doing a lot of good for the citizens of Anyox, both
in sports and education.
Tenders are being called for the
new court house and police station
at Alice Arm. At last we are
going to have a police station that
will be located in town, instead of
being a mile along the railroad
track. No more will our worthy
constable have to escort his unwelcome guests over railway bridges,
piles of rock, and ties for nearly a
mile, before he can tuck them safe
in bed. We have waited for a
police station a long time, and we
have finally got it. We are still
waiting for lots of other things and
we hope they too will come in the
near future.
Rich Strike of High
Grade Ore on Kitsault
A rich strike of native and ruby
silver has been made on the Second
Thought claims on Clearwater
Creek by George Casey, while doing
development work. The strike is
reported to have been made 1000
feet above the tunnel which was
driven two years ago, and in which
native and ruby silver was found.
The lead has been traced from the
tunnel to the new strike. More
work will be done on the property
this summer, and it is expected
that a big body of high grade ore
will be shown up. The property
is owned by Jack Graham of Alice
Arm and George Casey of Prince
Rupert.

ANYOX GUN CLUB
Eight members of the Anyox
G-un Club, attended last Wednesday's "twilight shoot" and a marked improvement over the previous
week was' evident. The shoot
scheduled for June 29th. will be
postponed until Friday, July 1st,
when a trapshooting competition
will take place as a part of the
sports programme of the Anyox
Community League's Dominion
Day celebration. The competition,
which is open to everyone, will
consist of two events, each of 25
birds, one for the more expert
shooters, as determined by the
club handicapper's records, and one
for the less expert. Valuable and
handsome prizes are offered for
each event.
Following are the scores made

Development work at the Moose
Mine is proceeding rapidly. Cross-
cutting has now commenced, and
high hopes are entertained by the
owner* of striking a big body of
ore in the near future.
A   COMPLAINT   FROM
ANYOX
Mister Editor:
In a spirit of righteous indignation I take up my pen to invoke
your aid in the righting of a
grevious wrong to us, unfortunate
bachelors of Anyox.
Need it be said that our trouble
is with the canvas barrier which
shrouds the tennis courts from our
longing eyes. I ask you Mister
Editor, is it right or fair that we
should be thus cruelly debarred
from gazing on the beautepus faces
and sylph-like forms of the fair
devotees of the game. Former^
no excuse was too trivial, if it but
gave us the opportunity of passing
Hound's hotel, where we might
linger for a moment to gaze and
listen—even as Peris outside Paradise. Now, all is changed; a gloom
has descended on our town and all
because of the jealousy of a few
benighted blighters who want the
whole show to themselves.
Do what you can, Mister Editor,
to help us, for if you don't I'll be
driven to stop Mister Munroe the
first time I meet him on the street
and demand justice. I came near
doing it the other day, but there
was a look in his eye I did'nt like,
so I passed him the time of day
instead.
Yours sorrowfully;
Gas Eater.

THE MAN AROUND
TOWN
Miss Olsen of the teaching staff
left on Thursday's boat for Rupert
and Vancouver Then she is going
to her home in Sweden on a visit.
The Elks went down to defeat
on Wednesday last. They had the
game on ice, but that's another
story. There were no complaints
against the bell-ringers that night.
All was quiet when they went
home in the hush of the evening.
It was TOO dry to play good ball
anyway. Pete pitched for the
Elks and Fitzpatrick for the Smelter, while Salmon umpired the
game in a creditable manner.
There is distress at the house of
Mann's these days. Harry did dig
up his garden diligently, and sow
it with onion, radish and lettuce
seeds, and it grew and yielded
abundantly, and it was a source' of
pleasure to himself and a joy to his
family.
But alas and alack, one day the
gate to his garden was left open,
and a herd of goats browsing in
the neighbourhood, espied that
which to them was a great luxury,
and they therefore made a raid on
the said garden, and in the twinkling of an eye, yea, even before the
neighbours could give an alarm, all
was waste and desolation. That
was one time the goats got Harry.
Martin Zucco and family arrived
in town on Thursday, and is shaking hands again with old friends.
They have just returned from a
trip to their old home in Italy,
being away from here about a year.
However, Anyox looks good to
them.
The smelter gas seems to hold no
terrors to the plants which Mr.
Champion has in his hot house.
They are just lovely, and reflect
great credit on someone who
evidently is no mere amateur at
the game.
We have got a new jazz orchestra in the town, playing at the
picture show. They hail from
Prince Rupert, and their initio
sounds good.
George Burrell left for the south
on Thursday's boat.
Mr. Stepney, of the Bank of
Commerce stall', is taking his vacation. He left on Monday's boat
for Duncan, Vancouver Island.
The Smelter and Elks played
another draw game on Friday in
the football league. Alec Soaton
packs horse shoes with him all the
time.
On Sunday, the tennis enthusiasts held forth. The game has
got quite a hold in town and the
committee working for this end of
the sport are to be congratulated
on the manner in which the handicap games are played.
Blue Monday for the Elk's.
They went down to defeat to the
mine, and Eddie Swanson is now
wearing a smile that won't come
off. By the way, Thomas of Alice
Awn caught for the mine, and he
held that position down with great
credit to himself and also his team.
In our humble opinion, a readjustment on the Elks line-up might
help the team considerably. They
need a catcher. Use Cody in that
position, then play Harry Downs,
on 2nd, and Thorley on 1st. Keep
Pete Draudson pitching, and the
rest of the team as they are at
present. They could not do any
worse than the way they showed
up at Monday's game. Apart
from their poor playing, the base
umpire gave a decision against
them the first half of the game
which should make him quake in
his shoes if he has the right kind of
sporting blood in him. Such decisions do far more harm than good,
and too, why does the umpire
argue with the players.? The
manager of the team is the one
who questions his rulings. If the
umpire rules off the field the players who persist in argueing, (which
is entirely within his jurisdiction)
then we sHall see better baseball
all round. Try it out boys, for the
sake of the game.
A certain family that we are
acquainted with in town, had a
surprise party paid them whilst
they were on business bent. Unfortunately, the doors of the house
were left open, and in walked Mr.
and Mrs. Goat and one of their
offsprings, and took possession for
the time being. Fortunately their
stay was short, as they had several
calls to make that day, but in the
words of the song writer, "They
are Devils in their' o\y,n home
town."
Quite a run on the cider these
days. But it is not quite HARD
enough.
It has been suggested that the
Smelter team try out one of pur
city pets. They say they are good
hunters.
The Mine Boosters club held a
very successful dance last' Friday
evening. The music furnished by
the Elk's orchestra, was up to its
usuft.1 high standard, and the crowd
had a good time.

Police Station Arrivecil
