B. P. 0. Elks' Carnival
and Jitney Dance
\     Huge Success
The big Carnival staged by the
B. P. 0. Elks on Monday evening
was a huge success. A large crowd
attended and fun and frolic reigned
supreme. All manner of novelties
were offered, including: Frisco
Lamp Dolls, Flashy Vase Lamps,
Chappie Coats, Umbrellas, Bathrobes, Aluminium Kitchen Utensils and Indian Blankets. Phony
Money was the medium for purchasing chances on the wheels of
fortune and the Bingo game.
Twenty-five cents being represented by Five Hundred Samolians.
The Crown and Anchor game re.
ceived a big reception and the
shouts of "Anymore for Anymore"
and "the house is losing" filled the
The Indian blankets did not last
long; while the bingo game ran
out of premiums before midnight.
The hot dogs and bum coffee dispensed in the dugout also met
with a big demand aud a fresh
supply had to be brought in at
eleven o'clock.
The Jitney Dance drew a large
following, dancing being indulged
in from 9 until 1:30 p.m. The celebrated Moose Orchestra supplied
the music, which was exoellent.
Taking it by and large it was
the one big event of the season,
being something more or less out
of the ordinary for Anyox Folk.
Everyone thoroughly enjoyed
themselves, while the prizes offered
were of a high class variety and
well worth the winning.
The committee iu charge were,
E. R. Johnson, chairman, A. S.
Nickerson, Fred Brown, F. B.
MoLellan, Harry Goebel, F. Dresser
Garton Crow, A. Davis, W. Upjohn, C. Harman, Harry Williams,

Four Feet Ore Located
on Fox Group
An ore vein four feet wide has
been located on the Fox group,
which is on the North-east fork of
the Kitsault River.
The vein has been developed on
the surface by a series of open cuts,
and has been traced up the hill for
a distance of 500 feet. The ore is
composed of first-class zinc and
More development is necessary
before the exact dip of the ore body
can be determined, and this will be
done later in the summer.
The Fox group comprises seven
claims, and is owned by J. Flynn,
W. A. Wilson and J. A. Wilson,
and further development is expected
to prove up the existence of a valuable ore body.
The Fox lies in the rich mineral
belt of McGrath mountain, the Silver Cord and LeRoy, the two latter
now being developed by the Kitsault
Eagle Silver Mines, Ltd.

Road Building Programme to
be Enlarged
Another big road loan is in prospect for the next session of the legislature, it is believed,, following official intimation that the $4,-
000,000 loan approved by the House
at its last session will practically
exhausted this year by road' building projects now under way.
The fact that the new loan will
be virtually used up this year will
come as a surprise in most quarters
as it has been expeoted to last longer than this. The publio works
department however, has thought
it best with the money voted, to
get value for it and build roads
where they are needed with as little delay as possible. The road
building programme now under
way thus eclipses the work" undertaken in any previous year.

It appeared at its worst yesterday
when a thick pall of smoke hung
over the country for miles around.
Ashes commenced to fall in Alice
Arm on Wednesday evening, and
throughout yesterday the heavy
smoke obscured the sun.
Many were under the impression
that a serious conflagation was raging in Hastings Arm when ashes
commenced to fall, but latest advices are to the effect that the fire
is confined to the vicinity of Anyox.
Due to the recent long spell of
unprecedented hot weather the
woods are extraordinarily dry, and
everyone should be extremely careful regarding fire when in the woods.

Wagon Road to Glacier
Recommended By
Chamber of Mines
At the meeting of the Alice Arm
branch of the British Columbia
Chamber of Mines held last week,
the question of converting the present trail from the end of steel to
the Kitsault Glaoier into a wagon
road was brought up.
The question was debated upon
at considerable length. It was the
unanimous opinion that in view of
increased mining activity from the
end of steel to the Kitsault Glacier
that the construction of a road
suitable for motor trucks was
warranted. Especially as the
future prospects of this locality
were so bright.-       ,
It was urged that no time
should be lost in acquainting the
authorities with the fact, so that
if the commencement of construction was not possible this year, a
start could be made next year.
The secretary was instructed to
write a letter to H. F. Kergin,
local member of the legislature,
requesting him to take the matter
up, with Dr. Howard James, resident mining engineer, when he
visited the district.
Lone Star Has Big Ore Body
The Lone Star property, possesses the biggest ore body that I
have ever seen stated G. W. Mor
ley, who was in Alioe Arm recently.
A body of ore 300 feet wide has
been surface stripped and its length
has been traced on the surface for
a distance from 700 to 800 feet.
Mr. Morley is enthusiastic regarding the future of the Lone
Star. It is situated a distance of
2}4 miles from Alice Arm and is
on the lower slopes of McGrath
mountain. The ore is composed
principally of zinc.

There are still some people in
Alice Arm, who, when asked to
support the local branch of the
Chamber of Mines or attend the
meetings, counter with a question,
"well, what are they doing?" To
such, we say, wake up! brush the
cobwebs from your brains, and
take'an interest in your town and
the organization that is fostering its
growth. The local Chamber of
Mines is helping in many ways to
increase the development of our
mining industry. The local development of mining helps everyone,
therefore the organization is helping you. The least anyone can do
in all decency is to return a kind
act, therefore join the Chamber of
Mines, attend its meetings and become a booster, and you won't
have any time left for wailing about
"nothin much doin' this year."
It is regrettable that it was not
possible this summer to sustain a
senior baseball and football league
in Anyox. Is this the commencement of the decline of all sport in
Anyox?    It shouldn't be.
The summer season is half over,
and in about two months thoughts
will again commence to wander to
indoor sports. It is to be hoped
that a greater interest will be taken
in winter sports, so that youth can
find an outlet for its surplus energy.
When all is said and done, the
chief blame for the decline of sport
is the lack of a sporting spirit of
those eligible to take part. The
Anyox Community League stands
ready, as always to do its part in
fostering recreation, but success
can not be attained unless it has the
whole-hearted support of the community. Recreation is as necessary
as work, and energetic recreation
must be given youth if the mind and
body is to be kept fit.

Dunwell is Developing New
Ore Body
Portland Canal News
Development work on the new
vein on the Ben Ali claim of the
Dunwell group is being carried on,
the vein being exposed by open
cuts for a vertical depth of over
300 feet and 400 feet horizontally.
The vein throughout carries a good
grade of ore, with in places very
high gold values.
The lowest cut is at an elevation
of 500 above Bear river. This is
being faced up and a tunnel will
be driven at this point, following
the ore body which strikes almost
vertically into the mountain and is
from 2 to 5/^ feet in width. The
diamond drilling programme has
been started and will be carried ou
all summer.
The mill is operating in a most
satisfactory manner, milling an
average 140 tons per day and
turning out 30 tons of lead and
zinc concentrates every 24 hours.
The auxiliary hydro-electric
plant is just about completed and
will be operating shortly. This
installation will effect a considerable saving in power costs.
Porter    Idaho    Ships
Portland Canal News
Since the latter partof last week
ore has been coining down from the
Porter Idaho mine on the Marmot
river at the rate of three tons daily
being packed down by Rennie's
pack train, According to reports
tlie amount of high-grade accumulated during winter operations is
greater than in any year since the
property has been operated, and
there is said to be plenty in sight
to keep the pack train busy
throughout the summer and fall.
The pack train of 36 horses is
now housed under canvas near the
Wire Gold camp at the forks of the
Marmot, wagons being employed
from the beach to that point, a
distance of two miles over the new
government road.

Structural Materials and Miscellaneous Minerals, $50,175,407, making its mineral production to the end
of 1926, show an
Aggregate Value of $988,108,470
The substantial progress of the Mining industry of this Province is strikingly exhibited in the following
figures, which show the value of production for successive five-year periods: For all years to 1895, inclusive $94,547,241; forfive years, 1896-1900, $57,607,967; for five years, 1901-1905, $96,507,968; for five years-

Production Last Ten Years, $429,547,755
Lode mining has only been in progress for about 25 years, and only about one-half of the Province has
been even prospected; 200,000 square miles of unexplored mineral bearing land are open for prospeoting.
The Mining Laws of this Province are more liberal and the fees lower than those of any other Province
in the Dominion, or any Colony in the British Empire.
Mineral locations are granted to discoverers for nominal fees.
Absolute Titles are obtained by developing such properties, security of which is guaranteed by
Crown Grants.
Practically all British Columbia Mineral Properties upon whioh development work has been done
are described in some one of the Annual Keports of the Minister of Mines. Those considering
mining investments should refer to such reports. They are available without charge on application
to the Department of Mines, Victoria, B. C. Reports covering each of the six mineral Survey

Fatal Accident at the
Riverside Mine
Leonard Klemola, miner at the
Riverside, was fatally injured aud
his shift partner, B. Perovioh, suffered severe lacerations of the throat
and chest, when they were caught
by a delayed blast in the face of the
400-foot level. where they were
working. They had fired a round
of shots and counted one missing.
They waited 15 minutes (instead
of the full hour which is the rule
laid down by the management)
and then went in to investigate,
evidently reaching the face of the
drift just as the delayed charge exploded. This was at 11 o'clock
Tuesday night. Men from another
part of the mine carried them out
and rendered suoh first aid as was
possible, then rushed them over to
the Stewart Hospital where they
were attended by Dr. Willans
who called Dr. Carson of Premier
into consultation.
It was at once realized that the
condition of Klemola was desperate and that if it was passible to
save his life lie would at the best
lose his right leg, which was terribly mangled and the bone shattered throughout its length. He
died at 12:30 Wednesday afternoon
without regaining consciousness.
The body was sent to Hyder and
will be buried there at 2 p.m.
today, according to directions from
his father, Gus. Klemola, who lives
in Merritt, B. C.
Deceased was born in Michigan
about 25 years ago aud had resided
in B. C. for several years. He was
known   as   having    considerable
prowess as an athlete.

Why Canada Gets Ahead
We were just disoussing our
point of view as to the decadence
of mining share speculations in
Wall Street with a olient who is
one of our leading mining engineers. His sober if not profound
reply was:
'All too true, and conditions are
very bad here; but just recollect
there is plenty of money in Wall
Street to finance a mine if one can
be found."
What an unfortunate, if not pitiless, conception of this subject!
Our engineer friend did notattempt
to offer a solution as to how lo
Finance a Prospect, the living
breathing theme which is under
discussion throughout the whole
United States amongst mining engineers, prospectors, capitalists and
the publio. It is this prospect which
lias to be financed before it can be
come a mine, and any prospect
in mining, or any other form of
industry, cannot be financed unless
the atmosphere is with it.
The (Canadian) government is
free with its funds for the building
of railroads for settlers. Cheaply
available water power sets a splendid background for mining.
The Canadian government provides its minister of mines in the
Dominion Cabinet, while each of
the mineral provinces has a minister of mines.
These are more of the reasons
why mining speculation is moving
in Canada.—From the Market
