{Mining Notes
of Alice Arm
While    prospecting    on     the
i Kitsault group this   week,   Hans
j Pedersen located a fine body of ore,
1 whioh will add considerably to the
1 value of-the property.   The ledge
J! is about 20 feet wide and is oom-
I posed of galena ore.   The ore body
; is supposed to be a continuation of
j the ledge located on the Bonanza
j fraction.   The Kitsault group joins
the Dolly Varden on the northwest   and  is  one  of  the  oldest
properties  in   the  district, being
located in 1912 by Hans Pedersen.
The property is now owned by W.'
Martin, of Seattle.
It is reported that operations
will not be commenced at the Dolly
Varden or Wolr mines until some
time after December next. The
reason given is that Geo. Wingfield
the mortgagee will not receive an
order absolute until December.
Mr. Wingfield was given an order
nisi to the property last month,
and it is said the Taylor Co. has a
right to redeem thf. property, within six months. If the property
lies idle until December it is safe to
Say that no work will be done
until the following summer."
1 G. W. Morley is driving tunnel
on the Crackerjaok group, on
Roundy Creek. The tunnel was
started on the hanging wall and is
still being driven in ore. The tunnel is now in a distance of 36 feet.
Jim Calvin has commenced
diving tunnel on the Bunker .Hill
group to strike the big surface
showings uncovered by him this
year.
Bob McGinnis has commenced
driving tunnel on the Hooter, with
encouraging results. The formation being much more solid than
on the surface.
Dr. Hanson Dominion geologist,
arrived down from the upper Kitsault on Monday and made a
survey of the Illiance river valley
as far as the Naas divide, ^during
the week. He leaves for Terrace
on Monday.
J. Walters has commenced driving tunnel on his olaims on Lime
Creek. He has some first-class
galena showings on the property.
On July 21st, S. Nakay, a Japanese fisherman at Arrandale
Cannery was found dead in his
boat. Constable D. S, Cameron
brought the body to Anyox where
an inquiry was held, by the results
of whioh ii is suspected that death
was oaused as a result of drinking
wood aloohol. Burial took place
at Anyox cemetery.
Weekly Meeting of
Community League
Council, July 26th.
The regular weekly meeting of
the Community League CounoiJ
was held in the Reoreation Hall,
on the evening of July 26th.
Present: President Geo. Williscroft,
Sec-Treas. 0. J. Lowry, Councillors
Warwick, Roberts and Simpson.
The minutes of the previous
meeting were read and approved.
The Secretary reported that he
had proceeded to Alice Ai-m, on
July 9th, to decide on the best
method of handling the summer
oamp, and _ figuring the cost of
putting the various propositions
offered there for the_oamp in" good
shape. After looking everything
over it was thought best to obtain
a certain amount of accomodation
at the hotel, as there would be
greater satisfaction all round. The
arrangements made by the ..Secre-
aary were endorsed by the Council
in a motion made by Mr. Simpson,
and seconded by -Mr. Roberts.
A financial statement of the
League's activities on ' Dominion
D«y was given, theCounoil voicing
its approval of the satisfactory
showing made.
At the suggestion of the Secretary, the Councit"went on record
as approving the manner in whioh
the ball players acted as ticket
sellers for the.., 1st of July games,
the way in which the" ball players
held up the reputation of Anyox,
and the excellent management of
the team on local grounds, as well
as while visiting at Ketchikan.
At the last meeting, it was de>
cided by the Council to ask the
General Manager, Mr. H. S.
Munroe, and Mr. J. D. Lewis, kfoal
manager of the Canadian Bank of

Baseball the Premier
Sport of Anyox
Baseball is the most exciting
pastime in Anyox at the present
time. All three teams are bunched
close together in the struggle for
first and second, place. No one
wants to be in the cellar when the
League series closes, because only
the first and second placed teams
will be in the play-off for the Anyox
Championship. By the way the
teams stand at the present time it
is hard to predict who will be on
top of the ladder.
Umpires Waterman and Wall
having handled the games for the
greater part of the season, are no
longer the oentral targets for the
abuse of disgruntled players and
fans, having retired from their
offioial positions they are enjoying
the game from the bench. Dave
Rowley and Archie Berry are now
doing the umpiring and up to the
present neither of them are in
hospital.
Dance held at Alice
Arm Hotel
• A large number of people were
present at a dance held at the Alice
Arm Hotel on Wednesday evening,
when a party of 16 from.AnyOx
journeyed over on the Wanderer,
bringing with them a 3-piece orchestra. It is not often an
orohestra is available at Alice Arm,
and all the folk turned out to enjoy
the luxury, the floor being taxed to
the limit. The Orchestra was composed of Mrs. Sorey, piano: J.
Connor, violin; J. Tinmouth, traps
and drums. Dancing was indulged
in at a merry clip until 1 p.m.,
when ■» number of Alice Arm
people transferred their activities
to a surprise party, which had been
planned for that evening, and the
visitors from Anyox made preparations for the return trip in order
to snatch a few hours sleep before
the whistle blew its welcome notes
in the morning.
The boys from Anyox reported a
rough trip up, and several things
Were lost, including 1 dinky boat,
1 half hour, and 1 perfectly good
supper. Everyone Were, however,
te dancing - fornr >k«' soon-' as - the
witching strains of a waltz floated
in the air and the jolly time spent
was well worth ihe trip over.
Those making the trip, were:
Mr. and Mrs. L. Dobbin, Mrs. T.
Chapman, Mrs. Sorey, Gladys
Rashleigh, Kathleen Haslett, Fosey
Fraser, Rony Moore, Harry Thorley, Harold Davis, Ross Pedvin,
Fred Leggatt, Dave Rowley, Joe
O'Connor, J. Tinmouth, Tony
Almos (Capt.)
A large number of Anyox people
took advantage of the perfect
weather . prevailing last Sunday
to pay a visit to Alice Arm. The
Awake arrived during the morning
with a goodly number and several
smaller boats pulled in during the
day. A baseball game was played
during the afternoon between a
local team and a team composed of
Anyox apprentices and high school
lads. Picnic parties wandered
throughout the woods and tried
their luok with hook and line in
the backwaters of the' Kitsault.
A bunch of "Brother Bills" were
up for the day, with lots of good
eats, etc., with which to sustain
their strength.
To judge by the happy faces of
the'visitors and the cheers they
gave when the Awake left the
dock everyone had spent a pleasant
day, and let's hope we have many
more such parties here before the
present spell of fine Weather
breaks.
Baseball Team from
Anyox visit Alice Arm
An interesting and exciting game
of baseball was staged last Sunday
afternoon, when the younger fans
from Anyox played an Alice Arm
team. Although the home team
had it over the juveniles in batting,
their fielding was classy, and with
Ballantyne on the mound more
than held their own throughout
the session. Chapman's decisions
as umpire of balls and strikes were
interesting, if not always in agreement with the opinion of the fans.
We would suggest that the
worthy umpire and; Charlie Gray,
who umpired the bases, come to
some suitable arrangement whereby their individual decisions would
not conflict. Although the Alice
Arm players are now few and far
between, they will always endeavour to play a team on the
field should the boys desire to visit
the Arm at any time for the purpose of indulging in a friendly
contest.

"Bill Adams" in Anyox
There is a mythical gentlemen in
a' British soldier poem who was
supposed to do wonders. The title
of the poem is "How Bill Adams
won the battle of Waterloo."
On Sunday last, a party from
Anyox,went on a trip to Trout
Lake. During the day one .of the
ladies discovered that she had lost
her watch. A search was made in
an endeavour to find the missing
timepiece without avail. On the
way home the inimitable Bill
Adams stumbled over a root on the
trail. Seemed rather unfortunate,
but it was the very opposite,
because while Bill was collecting
himself together, the watch was
found at the spot where he fell.

The resumption of activities at
the Dolly Varden and Wolf Mines
now seems to be as uncertain as
they were twelve months ago.
Hope was entertained a short
time ago that a settlement would
be reached by the different parties
interested in these properties and
that operations would be commenced. The summer is fast
slipping away, however, and as yet
no sign of activity has been shown
by anyone. The situation is a
decidedly embarrasing one for the
* residents of Alice Arm, who have
held on heroically for the past 18
months in the hopes of a com-
(* —on**
mencement of operations. The
situation is greatly aggravated by
the fact that the Dolly Varden
Railway is still incapable of hauling out ore from any other property—should they" be desirous of
shipping—or hauling in any heavy
machinery for any company that
decided to commence operations.
It is true the railway has been
repaired so that hand cars can be
operated, but the Kitsault Valley
has got beyond the hand car stage,
and owners of properties are waiting, and will wait, until the railroad
is capable of handling heavy loads.
The Dolly Varden Railway means
as much to Alice Arm as the
C. P. R. does to Vancouver,
stop transportation and the business
of the town dries up. If the disputants are going to tie up the
Dolly Varden Railway for " an
indefinite period the government
should be able to find some means
of operating the railway for the
benefit of other mine owners in the
Kitsault valley, so that this rich
mineral country will not be lying
idle because a few individuals can
-""not agree over a few minor points.
During the present inactivity everyone is losing money; the workers
are losing wages, the government
is losing much needed taxes, and
the business of the town is stagna
ted. With silver ranging around
70 cents per ounce, there is no
excuse for this camp to be lying
idle, and we hope the government
i will take a hand in the situation
and either compel the disputing
parties to operate the railway, as
the agreement called for when it
was built, or operate it themselves.
Will the C. P. R.
Build New Road
The publication of an article in
the Edmonton Bulletin, which was
reprinted and commented ou in the
Prince Rupert Daily News, regarding the probability of the C. P. R.
building a railway from the Peace
river country with a terminus on
the Pacific coast is of interest to
the^ people of this district. This
project has been a theme of gossip
every year or two, but there is no
doubt that some day the scheme
will be brought, to fruition. The
terminus of the railway is the
question that most concerns us.
The Daily News treating the
matter editorially, says:
"The C._P. R. may take a north-
fern route from the Peace river to
the coast, coming out at Stewart
or Prince Rupert. This is quite
possible, so that there will be
another outlet to the sea with big
tracts of country opened up. At
one time it was reported that the
C. P. R. had acquired the old Dan
Mann charter from Stewart to
Edmonton."
There does not seem much possibility of the railway terminus being
at Prince Rupert, for the reason
that the new railway would be
compelled to parallel the G. T. P.
for a considerable distance, and
also that the greater part of the
waterfrontage at that port has
already been taken up.
There is a possibility—should the
railway be built—of the terminus
being at Stewart, but that energetic town is handicapped by the
fact that one half of the Portland
Canal is on the Alaskan side of the
International boundary.
. The late Lord Rhoddna, the
Welsh coal magnate, planned some
years ago to build a railway from
the. Groundhog coal fields, with a
terminus at the mouth of the Naas
river, with the idea of extending
the road at some future date
through to the Peace river. This
road would undoubtedly have been
built, but for the world war commencing in 1914.
When the C. P. R. Co. again
builds through to the coast, their
first consideration will be a first-
class harbor, providing no extraordinary obstacles obstruct their
building a railway to it. Alice
Arm has, as everyone knows who
has visited here, one of the finest
harbors to be found in the world,
and who knows, but what this
modest kittle mining town, set
likev,a jewel at the head of the
Arm from which it takes its name,
may not some day rank with the
big seaports of the world, and
compete with our "flapper" sister,
Prince Rupert; for the honor of
mistress of the north.

Mr. Simpson reported that he

Rupert Fair unless a new hull was
constructed. The cost would not

JB. P. 0, Elks Big  x
Convention at
Winnipeg
The Dominion convention of the
Benevolent and Protective' Order
of Elks, will be held in Winnipeg,
on August 15,16, and 17, and the
Winnipeg Lodge already has all
plans laid for the biggest and snappiest convention yet held, More
tha.n 1000 delegates are expected
to be in attendance from more than
'50 centres in Canada where Elk-
doni is tirmly established. The
majority of the delegates will be in
attendance only for the entertain-
| ment feature of the programme, as
representation at the convention is
| limited to one delegate to every
100 members.
The Winnipeg lodge has been
| working for weeks to make the
8ntertainiuent programme one of
the most attractive, ever put on at
, an Elk convention. In addition to
, the ordinary features that acoom-
\ pany all conventions there is a
river trip with a shore dinner, a
barbecue at River Park, an illuminated midnight parade aud several
other features not yet made public.
The Calgary lodge is sending down
a band and there will be two local
Elks bands in attendance. At one
time it was considered ^likely the
Calgary lodge would send down its
"Hello Bill'' revue, but owing to
the time of the year and so many
counter attractions, it was deemed
advisable to leave that until later
in the year.
Among some of the cities and
towns that will send their quotas
are the following: Vancouver, Victoria, New Westminster, Calgary,
Nelson, Moose Jaw. Regiua, Winnipeg, Edmonton, Sudbury, St.
Thomas, Woodstock, Cobalt, Chilli-
wack, North. Bay, Nauaimo,
Saskatoon, Windsor, Cornwall.
Richmond, Kenogami, La Tuque,
North Vancouver, Kamloops,
Vernon,   Prince  Rupert,   Anyox,
Port Coquitlam, Trail, Penticton,
Kelowna, Banff, Drumheller, and
South Vancouver. Toronto lodge,
recently " formed, also will have
represntation.
Big Prizes at Prince
Rupert Exhibition
Readers of the Herald, and that
means 100 per cent of the reading
public of Anyox and Alice Arm,
no doubt read the prize list for
contests in last week's edition, for
the Prince Rupert Exhibition. The
prizes are beautiful and the list
extensive, and there are many
prizes that Anyox can compete for.
Anyox ran second for the Baseball
shield last y«ar, aud they stand an
excellent chance of bringing the
trophy back to the smelter town
this year. Another important
feature is a contest for popularity
among the fair sex, and the value
of prizes given amount to $1200.00,
and are awarded according to the
number of .votes a contestant
receives from those who buy a
ticket for the fair.
Anyox is the second biggest town
in northern B. C. and it is up to
the citizens or some organization
to nominate a contestant, and then
boost her for all they are worth,
and there is no doubt that the-]
Anyox representative will bring
home one of the big .prizes, if not
the biggest. pther contests are
Better Baby contest, Hand Drilling'
double and singTe, and several more
open for competition to the people
of both Anyox and Alice Arm.
