Elks Baseball Team
Heads the League
In an exciting game before a
large orowd of fans, the Elks .baseball team on Thursday evening
defeated the Smelter by the score
of 2 to 0. l  '
Both teams had a strong line-up,
but the "Brother Bills" showed a
marked superiority over the Smelter at tlie bat. The Elks have a
fine aggregation of batters and this
fact won them the' game. Fitzpatriok for the Elks and MoKeowan
for the Smelter both pitched good
ball, This win plaoesithe Elks on
top of the League, and if the Mine,
or Smelter entertain any hopes of
lifting the oup this year, they will
have to swing a little heavier on
' tlie ball.
During the game, a section of
the grand stand collapsed. Fortunately, only a small crowd:
numbering twenty occupied this
section. Considerable excitement
prevailed, but happily there were
no casualties.
Win for Smelter Football
Team
Oh Tuesday evening the Mine
and Smelter football teams waded
-into eaoh. other in a hot and furious
struggle, They played the ftill
time, but all the efforts of the two
teams were futile, neither side
could place the pigskin in the nets,
eaoh team had to be content with
one point eaoh.

Copper Creek Property
Looks Good
Mr. Morley who was in town
yesterday states that his property
on Copper Creek is showing up
exceedingly well under the development work now being carried on.
The work now being done consists of driving a tunnel, which is
in 15 feet.. Recent assays from
this tunnel gave values of $44,00
in gold, silver and lead. The mineralized zone on whioh the tunnel
is being driveu is 72 feet wide, and
owing to tne flat nature of the
country at the tunnel, it is the
intention to sink a shaft on the
hanging wall. The Copper Creek
property is only a distance of 6
miles from tide water, and at an
elevation of 600 feet. ^B
Ore Uncovered on
War Dance Group
/Means.'1 A. MeGiiire and, j E,'
Paulcer arrived in town on Mdt>
day from the War Dance property,
where they have been engaged in
development work.' The War
Dance property is situated on the
north-east fork of the Kitsault
river and looks promising. The
work done this year consists of
surface stripping. Some new
showings have been unoouvered
including a six foot lead of galena
ore. \The majority of ore on the
property carries gold silver and
oopper.
Yarder Arrives for
N/c;iM.Ltd.
The Logging camp of the North
Coast Spruce Mills, Ltd. at the
Quartz Quarry, will, in a few days
be pulling logs from tue wpods. A
yarder donkey engine arriyed from
Anyox yesterday for this purpose.
Mr. F. Miller, who is in oharge of
the camp states that 15 men are
at present employed and that • this
number will be considerably
increased in the near future. It is
planned to work another engine as
soon as possiale.
Alice Arm is Ideal
Place for Holidays
Alice Arm is now in its summer
dress, with the trees in full leaf and
the summer flowers coming into
bloom. Ths town lying as it does
in a basin surrounded by mountains
is oonoeded by all who have seen it
to be one of the beauty spots of the.
Paoifio Coast.     ;
That the beauty of the town and
surrounding oountry is appreciated
by the people of Anyox, is shown
by the number of visitorewho
journey from the smelter town
to spend holidays in this pleasant
spot. Some of the visitors spend a
day or two, others a few, weeks,
while others settle down for the
summer, but each year the numbers
increase, and it is expected that
this year will see the largest influx
of Anyox visitors yet recorded.
For thoso who rfequire perfeot rest
and quietness, big shady trees
beside the gurgling brooks are
there a-plenty. For those whose
pleasure it is to land the wily trout
the Kitsault and Illiance rivers
afford   some of the best   fishing
/obtainable.   While for those who
._,., ■.,.-,'t*/   ..           ,..
love: hiking ;there/is the Dolly •yjar-
den railway 18 milas in length,
and the Illiance river trail 11 miles
in length'. For the Alpine climbers
there are all kinds of mountains,
from the real small ones to the
white-capped giants, Added. to
these sports, one can go boating,
or play tennis on the local courts.
For the convenience of those
who are not familiar with the boat
schedule between the two towns,
we wish to say that the launch
Awake leaves Anyox every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, at 3
p.m. and very often special Sunday
excursions are run during the
summer. The trip itself on the
boat is well worth the effort of
leaving town for a day or two.
Living expenses at Alice Arm
are at a par with Anyox. Three
general stores are ready to supply
your needs, and of rooming houses
there are a number to choose from.
If you wish to spend an inexpensive
holiday and enjoy the fresh air and
God's green earth then Alice Arm
is the place for you.
The best advertising Alioe Arm
has, received, is from those who
have spent holidays there. They
always come again. !
Gamp Producing
50,000 Feet a Day
Logging operations at the oamp
of the Abbotsford Logging Co. is
proceeding smoothly. Abost 1,500,
000 feet of lumber is now in the
water, and logs are being taken
out at the rate of around 50,000
feet per day. This figure will be
considerably increased when the
additional i yarder donkey engine
arrives and the high lead system of
hauling the logs is instituted
About 45 men are at present
employed.
Mr. J. Wheatley Commences
to Pull Logs
Mr. J. Wheately commenced
pulling logs from the < woods on
Monday last. A crew of eight
men are at present employed, but
this number will shortly be
increased.

It is time that British Columbians
awoke to the fact that the best
field for investment in right in their
home province. In the past, the
people of this province have sent
millions of dollars'to the United
States, for investment in bunk oil-
stock, and numerous other get-rich-
quick schemes in answer to the
appeals of professional promoters
' and salesmen. • They are now
realizing that 9-IQths. of these
companies were frauds, and in
looking around at home they have
found that nearly all the producing
mines are controlled by foreign
capital. The only reason for this
state of affairs is that our neighbors
from across the line realized the
productivness of our mineral wealth
and while the natives were feverishly buying real estate at inflated
prices, foreign oil-stock, etc. these
astute gentleman were quietly going
about their work, developing the
mineral resources of. the province
which, had they been left to the
people of B. C. to develop, jWould
very probably be still lying ' undisturbed in the ground, and the busy
mining camps dotted over the coast
portion of the province would be
the hunting grounds of the Indian.
It is time the people of British Columbia realized the importance of
their own province as a  field for
- investment.
Be Careful >
with Fire
Now that the dry season is here
again it behooves everyone to be
careful with fire. To date 10,0 bush
fires have occurred in the province
and large areas of valuable timber
land in the east are being swept
clean of all vegetation, leaving a
barren wilderness behind. Last
year was the most disastrous year
for forest fires in the history of the
province. It is up to everyone to
try and reduce this tremendous
waste of our wealth as much as
possible. Use extreme precautions,
at all times, for a small fire often
leads to an enormous eonllagatioh,
causing »a large loss of property
and untold hardship to your fellow
beings.

Granby Company Bonds
Mining Properties
An option lias been taken on the B.
C. Pyrites property, situated on Ecs-
tall Creek, at the mouth of the Skeena
Biver. This property has been previously bonded by the Granby Co.
when they did extensive diamond
drilling. The property is owned by
the Dunsmuir Estate of Victoria, and
the ore. is composed chiefly of low
grade copper.
The Granny Co. have also taken an
option On the Lucky Pour, group
Which is situated near -Jones Lake,
access, to", this .property is'-by. way of
Ohilliwack.
Dr. George Hanson of the Geological
survey addressed.the mining bureau
of the Vancouver board of trade last
week. He predicted that the Premier
mine would be the centre of milling
activities for some years to come. He
is also optimistic over prospects for
silver mining in the. Alice Arm district. Though sonic of the properties
are too small to be developed separately, he suggested that a consolidation
of them might bring great results.
Victor Dolmage, newly appointed
geologist for B. C, and W. A. Carlise
former provincial geologist, and later
manager of the Bio Tinto copper mine
in Spain, addressed the bureau.
Victor Dolmage^ newly appointed in
charge of the B. 0. branch of the
Dominion Geological survey has a long
and meritorious record as a geologist.
He graduated from the University of
Manitoba in 11)12. and then spent two
years teaching in B. C. In 1917 he
took a doctor's degree at the.Massa-
ehusettes Institute of Technology,
following which lit again spent some
time in B. C. before going to Ottawa
in 1020.
Granby Co. to Develop
Property on Skeena River
A deal is pending for a good prospect on Boulder Creek, ten miles from
the railway and a few miles eUst of
New Hazelton, between the Granby:
Co. and the owners, A. It. McDonald'
and ,los. Hicks, both well .mown in
this north country. Might claims are
included in the. deal; and if it goes
through will mean a big boost for the
mining industry of this distriot.
The Granby Co. has an option on the
eight claims and this summer and fall
will do considerable work on theln to
ascertain the depth. At the present
time A. B, McDonald is doing the
assessment work and after the snow is
all gone the Granby people will send
in an engineer to make an examination
Last summer their engineer went over
the property and sampled it. The
results of the assay were very favorable, and, acting on his report, the
company decided to investigate further
and to spend some money iu prospect...
ing at depth.
The ore is a grey copper, with the
chief values in silver, It is an exceptionally good ore for smelting and tho
surface showings are good'.
The report published in the daily
press on the coast during the week
was very much garbled, but if the
work to be done before the snow flies
again proves satisfactory there is no
doubt but that the big company will
mine at Boulder Creek on a large
scale.—Omineca Herald.

Attorney-General Addresses
Retail Merchants Association
Moi'Cefaith in the natural wealth of
their own country instead of blind
investments in foreign securities
peddled by glib salesman, would have
meant a saving of millions of dollar* to
the people of British Columbia during
the past three or four years, Attorney
General A. M. Manson declared when
addressing a meeting of the Retail
Merchants Association.
"British Columbia is the last country
in the world that can afford to lack
business initiative," he said. "We are
commencing to experience a period of
widespread industrial re-adjustment,
and yet we find that many pf our most
promising enterprises, based on the
natural wealth of the country, ore
.passing into the control of. foreigners.
Have we no wealthy business men, or
do they simply lack initiative and a
pioneering spirit?"
Redistribution For B. C.
Premier Oliver and his cabinet have
commenced the heavy task of'redistribution of seats in the Legislature of
British Columbia,, and it is expected,
that at the next session of the House,
which must commence by December
15 and probably will start invOct0bei>j
a bill will be introduced providing for
a rearrangement of provincial representation. At the last general election,
there were less than 1000 votes cast jn
several ridings, while ljarge electoral
districts in some instances have/only
one member. No decisioni can be
given out os to what changes'will be
mode but Premier Oliver declares he is
determined to wlye the problem in
such a manner that tfe to provide the
fairest representation possible for
every part of the province.

Mine Win Baseball
Game, on Monday
The baseball game on Monday
evening, between 'the Mine and
Smelter was full of thrills from
start to finish, the large crowd
being held in suspense until the
last inning was played, when the
Mine scored the winning run, and
won from the Smelter by a score of
4-3.
The Mine scored one run in the
1st. inning and the Smelter two,
Neither team soored in the second,
but the Smelter brought tip their
score to 3 in the 3rd, inning. This
lead however, was not long-lived,
for the Mine secured a run in both
the 4th. and 5th. innings, thus
tieing the score.. It was now an
exhibition of dropping flies, aud
overthrowing ihe bases, in faota
regular fiasco, with the Smelter
making the most pitiful showing
allowing the Mine to score the
extra run in the 7th. inning. A
lead which the Smelter could not
overcome. The Gas Eaters lost
through their play being poorer
than their opponents, who took
the long end of the 4-3 score;
The teams were:

Big Mineral Production
• Predicted for this Year
v Hon, William Sloan, minister of
mines, has returned from the International Mining Convention, held at
Spokane, whe^re he delivered an
address on mining in B. C, past and
present. A special mineral display
was taken to Spokane and no little
was thus created in the great mineral
wealth of this province, The minister
claims that this will be the banner
mining year in British Columbia, with
a total production of from forty to
fifty million dollars. British and
American capital is becoming interested, while local investors are realizing
that the finest investment opportunities on the continent are found within
the borders of their own province.
Fur Industry to be Revived
The declining prosperity of the fur
industry will be, revived by strict
enforcement of the game laws, according to Mr. Jackson, K. O. Chairman of
the game conservation board. Plans
are being matured to encourage fox
farming. There are several iu the
province, on Vancouver Island and the
northern mainland. The croso fox is
the most profitable breed to raise. in

from their boats at the float,
Boats have also been taken during
their absence and tied to gas boats
the consequence being that the
row boat was taken to another
camp. Mail sacks have been
tampered with, and it is the opinion
of those having row boats at tho
float that this thing has gone far
enough and unless these depredations stop some one is going to
suffer. If anyone wishes to use a
boat at the float, they should
obtain the permission of the owner
and if they are wise they will, in
the future leave anything in the
boats strictly alone. I

When Anyox Miners
Play Football
1 BY  A   SPEC'f ATOB ;f
Last week, in the absence of
thousands of spectators, myself
and another unfortunate fellow
who conldn't resist the lure of a
game called (combination) were the
sole witnesses'of a most spectacular exhibition, between the underground, i commonly known as'
(Ground-hogs) and the surface)
njore popular known as (Find-em-if
you-can) Which after three hours
strenuous play inevitably resulted
in a six all tie.
It would be impossible to give you
a correct line-up as there didn't
seem to be any special order, there
seemed to be an endless supply of
reinforcements we counted as many
rs 16 on one team and it was every
body for himself it was kick-bite
gouge and swallow the ball if; »you
could get it, which brought loud
wails of protest from the railway
track as there happened to be a
train passing at the time. Right
from the commencement of the
game it was plainly to be seen that
the spectators were going to get
their money's worth, and up till
the time that some of ihe more
venerable Gentlemen were beginning to tire,, one could hear all
sorts of murmurs of wonder and
surprise, and we fully expect that
the management of the regular
Football team will experience much
difficulty in choosing tbr right line
up in the future.
The game was in progress when
we arrived at the, grounds having
been (delayed at the approach' to
the grounds by the multitude clamoring for admission, but on entering1
the first big surprise we got, was
to see J. Wholesome, (the doughnut
artist) guarding the nets for the
Hogs, there was much speculation
as to how he came to be there, some
were inclined to think that he had
got over excited and had wandered
into the arena by mistake, but he
soon settled all doubts as to what
he was doing there, one glance at
the advancing line, and behold the
Peckers are coming fast and
furious, arid then we were treated
to our seoond big surprise, A
SHOT! BANG, and away goes the
ball sailing into midfield. Jack has
cleared beautifully and from then
on it was DING-DONG with the
ball out of play most of the time.
Another promising star was also
seen in action by the name of L.
McBull (more popularly known as
a dollar, he doesn't point) who after
playing' a brilliant game in the
first half at Full-back for the Hogs
retired to the goal for the remainder of the game, on the referee
awarding the Peckers a penalty
kick after muoh altercation and
ultimately getting the mob .behind
the line! A. Pin was seen to be
rushing at the ball with a terrifio
kick, but it was of no availt Mao.
was seen to make a spring whioh
resembled a kangaroo doing, the
Afrioan war dance, and Zoie, saved;
which brought forth tremendous
applauses and another star became
famous.
Mr. Lunge was also seen in
aotion, who started at outside-left
for the HogB, but later on moving
back to the defence, who had to be
warned several times for the desperate lunges he made at some of
his opponents, he gave   one   the
impression that he was trying to
