Impressive Easter Services Held In Anyox
Churches
Anglican Church Beautifully
Decorated, and Services
Enjoyed
Easter Day was fittingly celebrated'at Christ Churoh, there being four Services hold, all of whioh
were well attended.
The Church, under the able
direction of Mesdames W. B.
Henderson, Jago and Stevens, was
beautifully decorated with Evergreens, Easter Lilies, Tulips and
Carnations.
There was a celebration of the
Holy Communion at 8 a.m.
Morning Prayer, followed by an
administration of the Holy Communion, was conducted at 11
a.m.
The Incumbent was the preacher,
who selected as his text: St. Matt
28 ver. 5. "Fear not ye: for 1
know that ye seek Jesus, which
was crucified. He is not here; for
He is risen."
There was a Children's Service
in the afternoon, which had the
largest attendance of any Service
held for the children in the history
of the Parish. All entered heartily into the singing of the Easter
Hymns and the responses, causing
one to feel that Easter Day with
it'-, niKBsnsB of a—new and higher
life, possessed a note of joy and
triumph peculiar to itself.
A large and reverent congregation assembled for the Service iu
the Evening, so that the Church
was comfortably tilled.
Larger congregations gathered in
more magnificent buildings aud
were lead by beautiful well toned
organs and especially trained
choirs, but your correspondent
doubts very much, if there was another place in the whole of the
Dominion where the Anglican
Service was entered into more
heartily by each individual member than at Evensong at Christ
Church, Anyox.
Mrs. J. Conway rendered the
solo: "Our Blest Redeemer," in a
very acceptable manner.
The Sermon was based on Phil.
3, ver.. 10. "That I may know
Him and the power of His Resurrection." ,
The Preacher emphasised 'the
destruction between the power and
the fact. A fact is known when
you know the history, the law,
the proofs, perhaps the dale of its
happening. You know the power
when you understand the relation
of that fact to yourself, to the
Community or to the Country at
large.
With The Resurrection of Christ
a new force and a new power came
into existence.
It is one of the best attested
facts of history. The disciples had
no expectation or hope that He
would rise again from the dead.
When He was crucified they all
forsook Him and Hed. Yet within
seven weeks they were proclaiming to those who had crucified
Him, that He was risen from the
dead. Through their preaching
many more believed the fact.
Within 350 years Christianity
had been adopted as the religion of
the Roman Empire.
The Day of Rest was changed
from the 7th. day of the week to
the first, and that by the decree of
no prince or potentate, but by
general consent.
The power of the fact was in
the assurance of Immortality, the

Mine  Intermediates of
Anyox Are Northern
Champions
The Anyox Intermediate Basket-
ballers took two games from Prince
Rupert, at the Beach Gymnasium, on
Easter Monday.
Tlie first game was between the
Mine team—winners of the local Intermediate Championship—and the
('oils, winners of this Rupert League.
The Anyox squad jumped into the
lead right from the start, and held it
until near the end. The visitors,
however, crawled ahead and looked
like winners tor a few minutes, but
several fast plays hy the local team
put the game on ice. The final score
wus 25 to 28.
By virtue of their win the Mine
Intermediates are now recognized as
the Intermediate Champions of Northern B. C.
An exhibition contest was next on
the programme, bringing together the
High School girls and the Mine girls.
The students handed the Anyox fans
a surprise when they slipped over a
win by the score of 9 to 7. The winners had the edge on their opponents
throughout the game.
The last game of the evening was
Prince Rupert All Stars vs. Anyox
All Stars. The visitors were handicapped to some extent, as several of
their players had already played one
•%-d,Tii3, while the local team was practically fresh. The final score in this
contest was 35 to 15 in favor of the
home team.
Geo. Lee was the referee in both the
boys' games, and Ralph Smith of
Prince Rupert, handled the whistle
in the girls' contest.

local men have made an offer to
the Directors of the company to
drive the proposed tunnel, taking
half stock and half cash for the
work. The LaRose, as we pointed
out last week, is considered a property full of possibilities. The fact
that local men are willing to take
stock for their work is proof of
their faith of the property developing into a mine.   *

Logging Camps at Alice
Arm Prepare For
Season's Work
Preparations for a busy season
of logging activity was commenced this week by Eric Carlson, who
arrived from Vancouver on Monday, and who, for the past two
years has conducted the logging
camp near the Illiance River.
At the present time nearly
twenty men are employed. Before logging operations can be
commenced it will be necessary to
construct about f of a mile of railway, as the grading for this stretch
was done last fall it is anticipated
that about 10 days or 2 weeks
should see the completion of this
work.
As soon as the railway is completed, a full crew will be working, comprising around 50 men.
Mr. J. O. Trethewey, who also
arrived on Monday, will complete
his logging operations this year.
In addition to getting out the logs
near the Illiance he will log some
ground on the side hill, north of
Silver City.
The Anyox Football League held
their annual meeting on Friday evening, at the Gymnasium. Business of
the coming season was discussed and
the election of officers took place.
The officers elected for 1025, are: E.
Pierce, president; T. P. Ryan, vice-
president, and Laurence Dodd, secretary. It was decided to hold a dance
in the near future to provide funds to
purchase a set of goal nets. Three
teams will participate in the games
this season, namely: Mine, Smelter
and Beach.
Mining Outlook Is Very
Promising for Season
Judging from present appearances, the mining industry of the
Alice Ann district is in a very
healthy state. At least five properties will be worked this year,
and it is understood that arrangements are being made for the
development of several others. As
all plans have not yet been completed, we have been requested to
withold publication regarding the
latter, but it is safe to say that
considerable more than five properties will be operating before the
summer is over.
Alice Arm Logs  Goes  To
Prince Rupert
A tug arrived from Prince
Rupert on Monday and towed out
another boom of logs from the
camp of Miles Donald, near
Campers point. The boom comprised of about 500,000 feet b.m.
The tug also took out the boom of
logs of W. Cody. These logs will
be cut at the Prince Rupert sawmill.
Toric Ore Goes To Van.
and Stewart
A big chunk of high grade ore
from the Toric mine was sent to
Rube Hull, editor of the Portland
Canal News ,by George Bruggy
during the week. Rube was the
possessor of one piece of Toric ore,
but he placed it in. the B. C.
Chamber of Mines mineral display.

The news item we published
last week in regard to the statement made by Premier Oliver respecting the Dolly Varden railway was hailed with delight by
our nearly 600 readers. A club
which the pessimists have been
swinging for a long time must now
be discarded, for the Premier
plainly stated that the railway
could be used by any company
who desired to do so, providing
they really meant business. One
ot the chief arguments of the
pessimists was that development of
the camp was held back because
no company could acquire the
railway if they so desired. That
obstacle has now been removed,
and a property owner, when
negotiating for a sale of his claim,
can state that all transportation
problems up the Kitsault Valley
can be solved. If a company
desires the use of the railway for
gasoline speeders to take in
supplies or ship small quantities of
ore, it is there for use, and if they
need it for heavy traffic it can be
' acquired without paying an exorbitant price. Ailce Arm is now in
a superior position to a lot of other
mining camps, for it has a railway
already built, ready for any influential company to take over and
operate, in conjunction with their
mining activities.
There has been considerable
talk throughout, the province of a
resumption of mining at Copper
Mountain in the near future by the
Granby Co. Although it is probable that operations will be recommenced, the officials of the
Granby Co. have to date mad-j
no statement to that effect. To
start operations at Copper Mountain and Allenby is a big undertaking, involving the expenditure
of a large sum of money, and it is
possible that the Granby Co. will
wait until the price of copper
again rises, and shows more
definite signs of stability, than it
has done during the past year.
The resumption of operations at
Copper Mountain would be a big
bo'ost for the mining industry of
the province. Hon. Wm. Sloan
minister of mines, hopes that the
value of the mineral production for
this year will exceed $50,000,-
000. Last year the mineral value
was $48,621,097, so that it can
be readily seen that the operations at Copper Mountain would
boost the value well over $50,-
000,000. It would also increase
the copper output of the Granby
Co. to close on 60,000,000
pounds of copper per year.
Air Survey To Be Made
Of Stewart-Peace River
Railway
Some photographic work is to
lie carried on this season at Stewart, by the Royal Canadian Air
h'oroe in conjunction with the
topographical surveys branch of
the department of the interior.
Owing to the Portland Canal
mining developments and the
agitation to make Stewart the
terminus of a transcontinental
railway system tapping the Peace
River district and the Groundhog
coal country. The photographs
will prove of great interest,
especially in settling a controversy
as to whether it is possible to build
a railway from the Bear River
valley to the Naas upper waters.
English Company May
Buy Premier Mine
Advices from the south state
that the Selukwe Mining Co. of
Loudon. England, who own the
B. C. Silver, which adjoins the
Premier, are negotiating for the
purchace of the latter mine.
The sum of $90,000,000 has been
mentioned as the purchase price,
but this has been denied by A. B.
Trites, one of the chief owners of
the Premier. Mr. Trites states,
however, that negotiations are
proceeding with the Selukwe Co.
The Premier Co. owns about 33
per cent, of the stock of the B. C.
Silver. Should a sale be made the
two properties would be united
under one management.
Oil Drilling to Continue at
Fort Norman
The Imperial Oil Company will

Fort Norman since 1921, hopes
this summer to establish the true
worth of the Held..

Recent Sampling at
Dunwell Shows
Good Values
In a lengthy article on the Dun
well Mine ut Stewart, the Vancouver Mining and Engineering
.Record gives the following inter
esting news, regarding values
obtained at the recent sampling of
the mine.
"The Dunwell Mine at Stewart
continued to show up well under
development' The No. 3 tunnel
crosscut the vein at a distance of
4150 feet From the portal, and No.
4 tunnel crosscut the vein at 948
feet, The vein has been drifted on
for 1150 Feet on No. 3 level, which
gives a vertical depth of 350 or
500 feel; on the dip. Sampling has
been done by drilling across tlie
vein, with the result that the
average value over a width of 5
feet is 0,46 gold and 112 ozs.
silver per ton. The vein varies in
width from 5 feet to 10 feet.

Anyox Easter Services
Continued from page 1
assurance of the reality of the next
world, the assurance of recognition
in that world, and in the ultimate
triumph of the Spiritual over the
material, of right over wrong.
Miss Pearl Jago presided at the
organ for the morning Service and
also for the Children's Service in
the afternoon.
Mr Frank Dresser, the regular
organist, was in his accustomed
place for the Evening Service.
Large  Congregation   and
Beautiful   Singing  at
Union Church
The Union Church was crowded
to capacity last Sunday night for
the Easter Services. The Service
throughout was most impressive
and fully enjoyed. The Easter
hymns were sung by the larger
congregation.
Two appropriate musical selections were rendered by Messrs. J.
Varnes, R. Pedvin, R. C. McKnight, G. A. Kribbs and H. I
Ward.
Mr. W. R. Murdoch rendered in
his usual capable way: "Thy Rebuke," from the Messiah
Mr. 0. Webster presided at the
piano.
Miss Mackay and Mr. Murdoch
sang the duet: "One Sweetly
Solemn Thought." They were accompanied on the piano, by Mrs.
Piun.
The Easter Sermon was preached from the text: "And Jesus met
them on the way." There has
been a much deeper interest in the
work of the Church during the
past winter. This has been evidenced by the increased congregations.
A line new Pulpit has been donated by Mr. A. Roberts and a green
plush Altar rail by the Ladies' Aid
of the Church'.
These two latest additions greatly enhance the appearance of the
Church.
