Alice Arm and Anyox
Jointly Celebrate
Empire Day
Alice  Arm Attracts Flocks
of Anyox Visitors
Judging from the manner in
which Empire Day was celebrated
in Alioe Arm, the British Empire
contains no more loyal subjects
than the people of Alice Arm and
Anyox. A large number of Anyox
visitors arrived on Saturday and
Sunday, and these somewhat
speeded up the hilarity.
The Awake brought over a
number of Anyox folks on Saturday evening, aud a dance was held
at the Alice Arm Hotel. This
was one of the most brilliant
dances of the season, and tlie large
number present enjoyed every
minute of the evening.
The new Anyox orchestra, The
Northern Triad, supplied the
music, which was of a standard
equal to much larger and older
orchestras. The musicians were:
Mrs. H. B. Chapman, piano: T.
Bagwill, saxophone; ' J.  Cameron,
dm ma
This is the first time this year
that an Anyox orchestra has visited us and we hope it will not be
■very-long before we have the
pleasure of again entertaining our
friends from Anyox at a dance.
All those who arrived from
Anyox on Saturday stopped over,
and on Sunday morning six or
seven more boat loads of excursionists arrived to swell the number.
Among the boats arriving on Sunday were the Awakef, Azurite,
Cuprite, Ranger, Betty, and a host
of others, so that by noon it was
estimated that well over 150 persons from Anyox were drinking in
the   beautiful   scenery   of   Alice
Arm. ^ •
The weather was perfect, with
the sun shining throughout the
day, and with a cool breeze blowing inshore, Alice Arm was a
pleasant place, with its wealth of
greenery and flowers, which was a
revalation to those who had not
had the pleasure of visiting Alice
Arm previously.
A large portion of Sunday's
visitors were brought over by the
Anyox Lodge B. P. 0. Elks, who
conducted an excursion, and great
oredit is due to the Brother Bills
for their organizing abilities, and
the wonderful success their efforts
attained. The Elks' orchestra was
in attendance, and during the
afternoon they conducted an open
air concert, in the grounds of Mr.
and Mrs. Al. Falconer's home.
A large number availed themselves of the opportunity of listening to this splendid orohestra, and
the following programme was
rendered:
Maroh: "Under the Double
Eagle.
Overture: "Lustpiel."
Trombone Comedy: "Slip Horn
Stuff."
Maroh: "National Emblem."
Waltz: Kaluce Moon."
March: "Bean Ideal."
Chamber of Mines Want
Our Ores
Postmaster W. M. Cummings
recently received a letter from the
B. C. Chamber of Mines, requesting that arrangements be made
here for the sending of an ore exhibit to the Chamber of Mines.
Arrangements have been made
whereby property owners can
leave samples at eitherT. W. Falconer's or Bruggy's store. Plans
have been made to defray shipping
expenses. Here is a spendid opportunity to place an exhibit
where it will be seen by mining
men, and it is to be hoped that all
property owners will co-operate
and bring in their samples with as
little delay as possible.
Pleasant Evening Spent
Anyox Football Dance
Last Monday evening was the
scene of much gaiety and merry
making when the Football Association gave a dance in the Gymnasium.
The dance started at 9 o'clock
and ended at two with all present
satisfied that the affair was all
that could be desired. Refreshments consisting of ice cream,
coffee and cake were served at
about eleven o'clock, The proceeds of the dance are to go towards buying equipment for the
Smelter and Beach football teams,
and the association wish to thank
all who kindly donated their services.
The Elks' orchestra was up ,to
their usual standard and furnished
snappy music. Messrs. Austin,
piano; Waterman, drums; Steele,
Trombone; Armstrong, violin; and
Stivenard, cornet, are to be congratulated on their splendid music.
Angus McDonald was an arrival last week-end from Anyox. He
will spend a few weeks here developing the Esperanza extension.
Overture: "Raymond."
March: "Washington Post."
Overture: "Light Cavalry."
Waltz: "Kiss Me Goodnight."
March: "White Squadron."
At the conclusion of the   programme,    Kathleen    and     Irene
Bruggy gave a clever exhibition
of  the   "Highland   Fling"    and
"Sword Dance."
The combined Elks' and Alice
Ann orchestras then rendered
several dance numbers, to the delight of the large audience, and
completed perhaps the first open
air concert to be given by an
orchestra in northern B, C.
Various parties of the visitors
explored the Kitsault flats, while
others surveyed the beauties of the
Kitsault valley along the railway
while yet others explored around
the town. All, however, were loud
in their praise of the people, the
weather, and the scenery of Alice
Arm, and intend to visit us again
before the summer weather is over.

Sun Shone on Brilliant
Scene on Anyox Tennis
Courts
The Anyox Tennis Club held
their second Tournament on Sunday, May 24th. under the most
ideal weather conditions, and Old
Sol will have to travel far to view
a finer collection of beautiful ladies,
wearing pleasant smiles and
equally becoming costumes, than
on our own courts at Anyox.
From first to last each point
was contested with pep and vigor,
but the outstanding players were
Mrs. W. Eve and Mr. D. Cole, and
Mrs. H. Speight and Mr. G. Lee;
both these teams having a perfect
score up until the last round, when
Greek met Greek, and Mrs. Eve
and Mr. Cole won 20-17, .thereby
maintaining a perfect score
throughout, but when the handicaps were added, two other couples
took the lead by only a few points.
The prizes for this Tournament
were very kindly donated by Mrs.
H. Speight and Mrs. L. F. Champion (Gentlemen's first and second)
and Messrs. F. C. Townshend and
H. J. Baillon, (Ladies' first and

no doubt the Ladder Series will be
very popular iu the meantime.

Mine Baseball Team
Triumph Over Smelter
The Miner's were victorious over
the Smelter on Monday evening
by the score of 8 to 3. Jimmy

mound for the winners, letting
them down with live scattered
hits. Boleau made his debut in

a nice game for the losers, With
a little more experience he should
develop into a pitcher of no mean
calibre. Les Lane was behind the
log for the Mine and Jim Hutchinson for the Smelter.

Alice Arm Has Three
Big Buildings Under
Construction
Alice Arm is one of the few
mining camps of the province
where building operations go on
year after year. It is a town
which the inhabitants are confident that will some day iu the
near future amply repay them for
their labor in preparing for the
future. Those living in town
fully know that Alice Arm is destined to become a mining camp
second to none in the province,
and they are not afraid to back
their opinion by preparing. This
is the spirit that built up the west^
ern provinces, and will eventually
develop Alice Arm.
Three new big buildings are
now under construction on First
street, north of the school. The
lirst building is being constructed
by Roy McKinley! It will have
a measurement of 26 ft. wide and
a length of 80 ft. It will contain
three floors, and will, when completed be used as a rooming house
with stores on the ground Boor.
It will be up-to-date in every
respect.
S. Dumas, who is constructing a
building on the adjoining lots has
the foundation posts aud stingers
in place for a building having a
width of 30 ft. and a length of 90
ft., and it will have a 35 ft frontage. The building will consist of
three floors, and will be rented for
offices etc. One floor will contain
a large hall, which can be
used for meetings, dances, etc., aud
later a moving picture show may
be installed.
Miss C. Tullefsen has the floor
already laid for a building
measuring 28 ft. by 45 ft, close to
S. Dumas's new building. It will
he two stories high, with a six foot
porch in front, aud will be used for
a rooming house, fitted with baths
and all modern conveniences.
Local Men have Contract
For LaRose Tunnel
Messrs. Neil Forbes, Fred
Martinson and Burt Burtleson
have taken the contract to drive
the development tunnel on the La-
liose property. The tunnel will
be driven 400 feet, and work will
be commenced iu the near future.
Neil Forbes arrived from Anyox
Thursday in order to make preparations for the commencement of
the work.
Boat Schedule Changed For

E. MOSS, Editor and Publisher.
Last week in our news columns
we published a rebuttal of E. A.
Haggen's statement that the Dolly
Varden was practically exhausted.
Most of the space allotted was
taken up from extracts of various
reports, and space did not permit
us to say all that we wished. We
would like to mention that for
some reason or another Mr. Haggen has never been friendly towards Alice Arm. In his writings
in the Daily Province and also the
Mining and Engineering Record,
he very rarely mentions Alice
Arm, and when he does it is extremely brief. He has not yet
written one word regarding developments at the Toric, but he does
not waste any time in broadcasting the lie that the Dolly Varden
is exhausted. We would like to
ask Mr. Haggen how he would
like us to broadcast to the world
the news that his beloved Cariboo
■ —of which he writes about so
much—is exhausted.
Mr. Haggen is perhaps afraid
that when Alice Arm is fully
recognized by mining men that
another camp, in the north, in addition to Stewart will take a large
share of the money for mining investments, and this money will be
lost to the southern part of the
province and the Cariboo. If this
is the policy of Mr. Haggen,—
and we can see no other reason-
it is time he adopted a broader
vision. Is it any wonder that
trade is stagnating when one district will belittle the other. We
don't care a tinker's cuss whether
Mr. Haggen ever speaks a good
word for Alice Arm. We can,
perhaps, get along better without
his help, but we do object to any
mis-statements he makes regarding
our mines. If he can't give us
a little credit, we hope he will lay
off from discrediting us at every
opportunity in the future.
Anaconda Copper Co. Has
Enormous Output
Daily production of the Anaconda Copper Mining Co., Butte
advices state, is now running more
than a million pounds of copper
daily—about 315,000,000 pounds
per year.
Besides this, there are 600,000
pounds of zinc and 40,000 ounces
of silver in the camp's daily production, for this one company
alone.
The Great Falls zinc smelter is
turning out each day approximately 600,000 pounds of spelter.

Season Opens
Elks  Prove Victorious over
Mine
The opening game of the Anyox
Baseball League was played on
Thursday evening last week. The
Elks and Mine being the contestants. The result was a win for
tlie antlered herd, 2 to 1. Mr. J.
B. Haffner pitched the first ball
with D. C. Roy on the receiving
end. The batteries wore: J. Ferguson and Lane for the Mine, C,
Ferguson and Cody for the Elks.
It looked very much like a win for
the Miners right up until the last
inning, but an infield error, a hit,
two walks and a passed ball let in
the two runs needed for the victory. Both pitchers were in fine
form, Jimmie allowed only three
hits and Cecil two. Jimmy 11
strike outs, Cecil 8.

Hazelton Property
Bonded by British
The American Boy mine, near
Hazelton, has been over by British
capital. A. Erskine Smith, who
is well known throughout the
north made a thorough examination of the property, and was
argely instrumental in putting
through the deal. A good deal of
ore has been shipped from the
mine in the past, and values have
been proven.
