Scene Of Activity
At Logging Camps
Near Illiance River
Despite the somewhat depressed
condition of the lumber market,
the logging oamp of Eric Carlson,
who is operating near the Illiance
river, is still a scene of activity,
and day by day the logs are coming out of the woods to swell the
booms in the water.
Mr. J- 0. Trethewey ia also
operating a small camp composed
of sixteen men, near the Illiance
river. He has built two dams, one
of which is a marvel of ingenunity,
in order to bring the logs to tidewater. The first dam, which is
about 350 feet in length has been
built to divert the river to an old
channel, and by some additional
work, water was brought down to
a spot where a number of logs
Were piled at a spar tree. Lower
down a horse-shoe shaped dam has
been built, in which is constructed
a gate, and when the water has
been impounded the gate is opened and the logs complete their
journey to the booms.
Since the last tug boat was here
from Ocean Falls, about two and
* a half months ago, Erie Carlson
ha« placed 5,000,000 feet of logs
b. in. in the water. He is at present
operating one yarder and loader,
and has a crew of twenty-eight
men.
He will continue to operate until
the heavy snow makes profitable
logging impossible, and it is hoped
that these conditions will not
obtain until Christmas.
Now that the new government
road is completed, and hiking
through the woods is a pleasure instead of a hardship, a visit to the
camp is well worth the time spent.
Among the attractions for the visitor is a place at the table in the
Dining Room if you happen to be
there when the gong rings, for the
hospitality and the excellent dishes,
of "Mine Host" the cook, is something not quickly forgotten.
Mine Club Gives
First Dance of Season
On Monday night the Mine Club
gave their first 9 to 2 dance of the
season. The dance was a great
success in every way and the new
officers and committee are to be
congratulated on the splendid success of the evening.
The dance ' committee introduced a novelty in the way of
having every tioket numbered and
the party who possessed the luoky
number won a prize of $5.00. This
was won by a lady, Mrs Dumond
being the luoky person.
Refreshments were served at
12 o'clook after whioh the numerous couples continued to dance until 2 o'clook.
Messrs. Armstrong, Jaok, Harris
and Cameron furnished the music
and were heartily enoored.
Elks Give Another Of
Their Popular Dances
Last Friday evening was the
occasion of a very enjoyable evening, it being that of a dance given
by the Elks iu their own Hall.
Although the evening was stormy
a good average of Anyox population braved the elements, and from
9 o'clook until 2 the five-pieoe
orche'stra supplied the music of a
superior order and contributed
greatly to the success of the evening. At 11.30 refreshments were
served in the Dugout and after a
short intermission dancing was
continued until 2 o'clock.
The orchestra cousisted of Messrs.
Steele, Stivenard, Austin, Waterman and Armstrong, their efforts
being greatly applauded. Messrs.
St. Clair, Nickerson, Gow, Cruik-
shank, Davis and Goerteen were
in charge of the dance and Jimmie
Thompson capably superintended
the refreshments.
Anyox P. T. A. Hold
Monthly Meeting
Weighty Questions Are
Discussed
Anyox Waterfront
News
Recently the Granby Co. have
been receiving small shipments of
high grade ore from mines east of
Prinoe Rupert. The last shipment,
about thirty tons, arrived on the
Prince John yesterday froniUsk.
The Granby Co. reoently loaded
the Louisiana with pyrites, destined for Barnet, and oottonwood logs
from Alice Arm for New Westminster. She left in tow of the Amur.
There remains a boom of oottonwood logs in the harbor, whioh
will be shipped to New Westminster on the scow Griffiths.
The launch Azurite returned
from Maple Bay, Wednesday night
with the pile driver and Chaqualla
in tow. The Chaqualla will undergo a complete overhaul at Anyox,
during which time the Coulite will
take her place at Maple Bay.
Improvements Being
Made To Concentrator
The Granby Co. have about
completed the new concentrator
tailings launder, whioh will direct
the flow of tailings into Falls
Creek beside No 2 power house.
This should prove a very satisfactory means of disposing of the
tails which will be washed down
and away by the force of the
stream, instead of the present
method whioh has proved costly
and otherwise unsatisfactory.
Slowly Recovering From
Stroke Of Paralysis
Friends of Mr. J. T. Watson,
who, while working at the logging
camp of Erio Carlson, was seized
by a stroke of paralysis some time
ago, will be pleased to hear that
he is progressing favorable at the
Anyox Hospital. The dootors at
the hospital, however, expect that
a year will elapse before he will
be able to again follow his occupation as a logger.
The beuefit fund whioh was
reoently oolleoted on his behalf
amounted to $295,00.
The regular monthly meeting of the
Anyox Parent-Teacher Association,
was held in the new school, on Tuesday.   Mrs. L. McAlister presiding.
After the usual routine business was
disposed of, the President called on
Mr. H. M. Mann for a violin solo.
This was efficiently rendered and
brought forth a demand for an encore
to which Mr. Mann responded. The
accompaniment was played by Mr. H.
Southam.
The resolutions submitted by the
Provincial Association for discussion
and action were then considered.
The first: "That our determination
to create public opinion against war
be placed on record," was ably sponsored by Mr. Hutchinson, seconded
by Miss McFarlane.
Mr. R. H. Manzer and Mr. H. D.
Southam supported the motion.
It was felt that as this was such an
important subject, it would be better
to leave further discussion over for
another month, so that opportunity
for further study, of the question
might be given, and some suggestions
of a practical nature offered as to how
this could best be brought about,
The second resolution: "That, we
endorse the movement of the World
Educational Congress held at San
Francisco, July 1023, to promote a
•Goodwill Day' to bo set for May 18th.
each year," was introduced by Bev. J.
Herdman. Those taking part in the
discussion, being R. Armour, R. H.
Manzer, W. Robertson, J. Brown, E.
J. Conway, and Rev. J. B. Gibson.
All were agreed that the object of a
"Goodwill Day" was a worthy one,
whereby a particular day is set apart
for special instruction on the principle of goodwill among men should be
given in all our schools.
In view of the fact that May 21th. is
a recognized holiday, and a day for
bringing before our children the responsibilities of the Empire, it was
felt that a more suitable day than
May 18th. might be found. One member suggested March 17th. or July
12th.—he must have come from that
littlei isle of perennial strife—while
another suggested St. George's Day
as most appropriate, but as these did
not find favor among the other members, it was decided to endorse the
resolution as it stood.
Resolution No. 3: "That the Provincial Government, through the Department of Education, make it compulsory for School Boards to establish
Technical aud Vocational Schools for
girls throughout B. 0., and further,
that everything possible be done
towards the establishment of a House
Economics Department in the University of B.O. ,„
Moved by Mr. W. Robertson, seconded by Mr. H, D. Southam and
.supported by Mrs. W. F. Eve and Mr.
R. Armour.
The purpose of this was to make it
compulsory, instead of optional as at
present. That an opportunity be
given all girls of B. ()., who under the
present system are denied the privilege of vocational training, and who,
were compelled through no fault of
their own to forgo the advantages of
higher education, and who, through
force of circumstances had to accept
positions of unelevating character.
This was carried unanimously.
Refreshments were served by Mrs.
Scott and the meeting concluded by
the singing of the Nationol Anthem.
Owing to lack of space the remaining portion of the meeting's report
will be published next week.

Miners Passed Through
Alice Arm During Early
Cassiar Gold Rush
It is not generally known that
Alice Arm possesses a landmark—
or rather, a tree mark—of the
days of the Cassiar gold rush in
the early 70's.
On Mud Creek hill, close to the
old pack trail to the Dolly Varden
mine, stands a balsam tree, blazed,
and inscribed on it is 'AUG. 1874."
In the tree, and also another, a
short distance from it, notches are
cut, which held a pole for a canvas
covering—a prospector's -amp,
It is near a small creek and a few
years ago was easily discernable,
although the lettering was almost
falling off through decay.
It is known that gold seekers
used these northern inlets in an
endeavour to get through to the
diggings, prospecting as they
went. Who this hardy pioneer
of exactly fifty years ago
was, whether he got through and
made a fortune, or turned back, or
was murdered by Indians, no one
will ever know.

Cassiar Gold Strike
The news item we published
last week regarding the new gold
strike in the Cassiar was reliable
news, given us by one who was
on the ground, practically when
the strike was made. We printed this news as it was given us,
and refrained from the sensationalism
that is used by some newspapers.
It is a fact that gold has been
found, but whether large quantities
of the yellow metal are hidden in
Gold Pan and the adjacent creeks,
remains yet to be. proven. The
fact that gold has been discovered
will alone produce a  stampede in
i ii* I
the spring. Here is an opportunity for the adventurous spirits
who roam the west, to test their
strength against the wilds. Here
is a chance of making a fortune in
a few short months. A gamblers'
chance, no doubt, but it is a chance
which hundreds are willing to risk.
No man, however, should go into
the country unless he has arnple
means at his disposal to take him
there and also for the return trip.
It is an expensive country in which
to live, and ^vill be more so if a
stampede results next spring.
Develop The Empire
The coming election in great
Britain may have far reaching
results to .Canada. The chief
issue of the campaign is whether
the British people should loan the
Russians some millions of dollars.
The conservatives' battle cry is:
"spend the money to develop the
British Empire," which seems to
us to be a good argument. Great
Britain would obtain far better
results by spending one hundred
million dollars in the Empire than
by loaning it to Russia, from whom
she cannot have any guarantee that
the money will be repaid. The
same amount of money spent in
Canada would repay dividends for
countless generations. It would
make the Empire independent of a
Good Dividends By
Sandon Property
The sum of $25,000 will be
distributed in Spokane, British
Columbia and elsewhere on
October 10 by the Silversmith
mines in payment of a quarterly
dividend declared by the board in
the Spokane office recently.
The forthcoming disbursement
will increase the total payments to
1400,000. After a long discussion,
the board decided to hold the remainder of the earnings and increase the surplus.
In August the company shipped
400 tons of crude and concentrated
lead-silver ore and 500 tons of concentrated zinc ore from its mine at
Sandon, B. C, to the Consolidated
smelter ac Trail B. C. Stoping is
is being done at intervals on the
1,100, 1,000, 800, 900, and 500 foot
levels of the new mine and on the
1,000-foot level of the Slocan Star,
the older mine. The appearance of
the stopes is good, according to an
official.
What's your boy worth? Deep
down in your heart you feel that

host of commodities that we aire
dependent on foreign countries at
the present time. Canada
possesses vast deposits of minerals,
including copper, gold, silver, lead,
zinc, asbestos, nickel, etc. Its
agricultural land when fully cultivated is capable of feeding the
whole white race of the Empire.
Another advantage which would
accrue through spending the money
in the Empire is that homes' could
be found for millons of Britishers,
under their on flag. If the mother
country honestly wishes the
Empire to be self supporting, it
should not make a loan of millions
of dollars to any foreign country
for development purposes, when
all parts of the Empire---especially
Canada—are struggling along such
a hard rough road.

500 Feet Of Tunnel
For Gold Cliff
Portland Canal News
A new discovery on the Bear
river, immediately across the ridge
from the big Premier mine, and
about opposite the Dunwell, has
been bonded by A. B. Trites, of
Vanoouver.
bThe property contains a wide
fissure vein of high-grade silver-
lead ore assaying $267.40 per ton,
that lias been traced on the surface over 1200 feet in one direction
from the discovery. Indications
are that the vein is very wide, and
apart from the persistant clean ore,
carries a substantial body of good-
grade concentrating ore.
Before leaving Stewart Mr.
Trites let a contract for 500 feet of
crosscut tunnel to tap the vein at
some 700 feet below the Apex, and
in addition has put a crew of men
to work to build a trail, camp and
open up another level that will
follow in on the ore body below
the water-fall, where the showing
is most promising.
The property was first carefully
examined by Mr. A. St. Clair
Brindle, Mining Engineer, of Vancouver, who brought Mr. Trites
in from the city, and with him
spent several days on the ground.
Later, after returning from the
property, Mr. Trites declared that
it is the most promising prospect
he has seen in Northern B. C, and
aside from the Premier, affords indications of becoming one of the
greatest mines in the Portland
Canal District.
Consisting of 18 claims, in two
groups, situated on the west side
»>t Bear river, about 2\ miles from
Stewart, the property extends
from the river bank to an elevation of some 4000 feet at the International boundary. The main
showing, a fissure vein, runs from
an elevation of 2200 to about 3600
feet, and is traceable on the surface for more than 1200 feet.
The vendors in the deal are Mr.
and Mrs. Wm. Dann, Mrs. Dann
having herself staked some of the
ground, Jim Douville and Frank
Riva.
Mr. R. W. Wood, President of
the Premier Gold Mining Company, Portland Canal Distriot
announces the declaration of a
dividend of 8 cents per share payable on October 3rd, totalling
$400,000. This makes the third
quarterly dividend for the year.
Total dividends declared by this
Company since the initial dividend,
which was paid on December 31st,
1921, will on payment of this
dividend total $6,800,000.
Up to the end of 1923 the mine
had produced 265,903 tons of ore
which gave 290,000 ounces of gold
and 8,379,519 ounces of silver, of
total value of $10,198,087.

Skeena River Mines
To Be Consolidated
An amalgamation of the operations of the New Hazelton Gold
Cobalt Mines Limited, the Roche
Du Boule and Delta Mines on
Roche Du Boule Mountain near
New Hazelton is being planned
states Nichol Thompson of Vancouver. These three properties
have rich ore, including gold,
cobalt and arsenic, but it has now
become apparent that their operations can be most profitable and
practically carried out by an
amalgamation. A great deal
would be saved especially as regards transportation. Mr. Thompson indicated that it is the intention of the company consisting of
Vancouver businessmen who control the Gold Cobalt Mine to continue development work thereon.
