Receptions and Sightseeing
Lieut-Governor Busy
The visit to Anyox on Friday]
and Saturday June 28th. and 29th.
of the Honorable R. Randolph
Bruce Lieutenant Governor of
British Columbia will long bo remembered by the people of Anyox,
and will never be forgotten by
those who had the privilege and
pleasure of spending even a few
moments in his immediate presence.
If wo were given to expressions of
stereotyped hackneyed blurb, wo
would say that the Hon. Mr. Bruce
is one of nature's noblest (if there
are any degrees of nobility) nobleman—for that lie is indeed.
The "Granby" docked at eleven
a.m. Friday, from Alice Arm. The
Granby Company's boat had been
at the disposal of His Honor on his
trip from Prince Rupert to Alice
Arm and thence to Anyox. Mr.
and Mrs. Chas. B. Booking were
on board as host aud hostess. He
was also accompanied by H. F.
Kergin, M. L. A. aud his secretary
A. M. D. Fairbairn.
He was welcomed by the Boy
Scouts, Cubs, Guides and Brownies, all in uniform, also a large
number of the citizens. After inspecting the Boy Scouts and Cubs,
thb Wolf Cubs gave their Grand
Howl. He expressed his thanks
for such a greeting but impressed
upon them that it was not for him
he was doing it but for the King
because he is a representative of
the King. After passing the Government office he was fronted with
the Girl Guides and Brownies and
school children lined up on both
sides of the street. Afterwards
the children were given ice cream
and candy.
His activities while in Anyox
consisted of a tour of inspection of
the Mine as well as the various
plants engaged in the reduction of
tho raw ore into the finished product. The trip was conducted by
Mr. Bocking, accompanied by the
resident officials of the company.
Himself an ex-mining man of wide
experience, His Honor evinced
great interest in the efficient manner in which this intricate task
was performed.
On Friday evening in tho Gymnasium Building tho entire populace
were invited to meet and shake
hands with His Honor. This function was in form of a supper and
dance. With a few spicy remarks
Mr. Chas. E. Bocking introduced
His Honor, the Lieutenant Governor to the some four or five
hundred people present. His Honor spoke for a few moments concerning the purpose of his visit to
the Northern part of the Province.
A line was then formed along one
side of the Hall and each person
present was introduced to His
Honor by his Secretary, A. M. D.
Fairbairn. Whereupon dancing
was resumed until midnight, to
whioh pastime His Honor gave
himself over with apparent en
thusiasm and enjoyment. The evening's enjoyment was concluded by
singing "God Save the King."
This affair was sponsored by the
Granby Co. who are to be congratulated for the splendid evening's
pleasure. The Victor Orchestra
provided the music.
The Pioneer Mess was the scene
of an interesting entertainment in
honor of the Lieutenant Governor
on Saturday at 1.30 p.m. This
was a luncheon at which His Honor
was the guest of the Anyox Branch
of the I. 0. D. E. He thanked the
ladies of this Order on behalf of

close by a dance at the Gymnasium,
and the celebrants carried the festivities into the following morning.

Collison of Kincolith Chapter, I. O.
D. E. and was among the most enjoyable held for a long time.
The spacious floor was crowded
with merry dancers until tlie small
hours of the morning. Supper
was served at 11 o'clock in order
to permit the departure of the
Ketchikan visitors at 11.30. The

Reception Tendered The
Lieut-Governor Alice

The soul stirring strains of "God
Save the King" welcomed His
Honor, R. Randolph Bruce, Lieutenant Governor of B. C. when he
entered the spacious dining room
of the Alice Arm Hotel at a reception held in his honor oil Thursday
evening, June 27th.
O. Evindsen, president of the
Alioe Arm branch of the B. C.
Chamber of Mines welcomed him
on behalf of the people of Alice
Arm. In a few well chosen remarks he said that he hoped that
His Honor had enjoyed his visit to
the Toric mine, and that he would
spend a pleasant evening.
In replying, His Honor said that
he enjoyed being able to meet the
real pioneers of the province such
as Alice Arm residents. Much
credit is due the pioneers of the
frontiers, and this also included the
women, who are helping to build
up the outlying sections of the province. His Honor was accompanied by Chas. E. Booking. President
of the Granby Co.
His Honor was introduced to
everyone present by H. F. Kergin,
M. L. A. Dancing followed, and
the first on the floor was His
Honor, who, in spite of his advanced age thoroughly enjoyed the
early stages of the dance.
An excellent supper was provided at midnight, and dancing was
carried on until 2 p.m.
Great credit is due the local
branch of the Chamber of Mines
for arranging the reception and
dance, and defraying all expenses
The visit to the Torio mine pre
vious to the dance was greatly enjoyed by His Honor. He stated
that the scenery along the route of
the railway was among the best
ne had ever seen. It should be advertised as a scenic trip he said
and further stated that his Alice
Arm visit had been most enjoyable.
Big Celebration Marks
Dominion Day At
Despite the somewhat unfavorable weather the big Dominion Day
celebration held-at Anyox on Monday, was carried through without
a hitch. The celebration was ia
charge of officials of the Community League and Mine Club, and
they deserve great credit for the
excellent manner in which the big
programme was carried out.
The day's sports commenced
with marathon races, commencing
at 9 a.m. A baseball game with
Ketchikan followed, and the afternoon was taken up with field
sports. A second baseball game
with the Alaskans was played in
the evening. A report of these
games will be found on page three.
The day ended with a big dance
which is also published in another
It was a big day for everyone
and all joined enthusiastically in
celebrating the anniversary of the
confederation of our vast and rich
Dominion. The juveniles, especially enjoyed themselves, and were
filled to the limit with everything
good to eat and drink.
We regret that owing to lack of
space we find it impossible to include the winners of the sports in
this week's issue.

New Ore Strike Made
On Homeguard
An entirely new strike of ore
was made on the Homeguard property last week-end by the Dalhousie Mining Co.
This new discovery was made
above where the tremendous boulders of copper ore are looated, and
is considered of great importance.
The width ol the ore vein has not
yet been determined. Samples,
however, were taken from across
five feet and have been sent to the
company's office for assaying. The
ore is said to be similar to the
Dolly Varden quartz and carries
considerable copper values.
This is the second new discovery
that has been made on the Home-
guard this year. The tunnel that
was commenced a short time ago
on the previous discovery, to strike
the ore at depth is being pushed
Airplane Visits Anyox
From Ketchikan
Considerable excitement prevailed
in Anyox on Monday, when a seaplane arrived from Ketchikan.
This is the first plane to enter
Anyox. It arrived about 1.30 p.m.
having on board seven passengers,
among whom were two Ketchikan
baseball players.
The pilot permitted a small number of children to enter the plane
for a very few minutes at a time, so
that everyone present might have
an opportunity to view it.
Father Champagne has the honor
of being the first aerial passenger
from Anyox. He left on Tuesday
about noon for Stewart in answer
to a rush call. We hope to see
planes more frequently in the future
and that they will be used more
extensively in the north.

Anyox  Outplays   Ball
Teams From
The Anyox ball team took both
games of a double header from the
visiting Ketchikan nine on July 1st.
The boys from the first city in
Alaska were not up to the strength
shown in former years and consequently the local lads had quite an
easy time of it. Johnny Lazorek
chucked in the morning contest
allowing six hits and whiffing ten,
having only one bad inning. The
second when he walked two and a
couple of hits netted the visitors
three runs. Anyox came right back
in their half of the second and tied
up the count and in the third frame
they drove Nelson, the Ketchikan
hurler, from the mound under a
barrage of hits which netted them
three runs and put the game on ice.
Tom Smith relieved Nelson in the
fourth and had the Anyox boys eating out of his hand for the remainder of the contest.
The evening game proved a walkaway for the Gas Eaters. Tom
Smith was just as bad in the evening' game as he was good in the
forenoon and combined with the
poor support accorded him by his
teammates he was in trouble right
from the start. Smith was relieved
in the sixth by Nelson. Orr did the
hurling for Anyox and was in fine
form allowing only five hits and
striking out eleven.
Morning Game:

Errors, 3.

Woodbine Directors Ask
For Government
Hon. W. A. Mackenzie, minister
of mines has acceeded to the request of the directors of the
Woodbine Gold Mining Go. Ltd. to
send a government engineer to
the Woodbine to make a careful ex-
imination of the property, if is
stated by Vancouver directors of
the company. In a letter to the management the minister commends the
efforts which have been made to
straighten out the affairs of the
The forthcoming government report will be awaited with interest
by shareholders of the Woodbine
whose hopes have been raised re-
:ently by publication of smelter returns on sample shipments of ore to
Trail. It is pointed out that although ore taken from different
parts of the property may show favorable smelter returns this would
not justify the conclusion that ore
is to be found in commercial quantities.
Ths directors express the opinion
that an authoritative government
report will clear the air and place
the company in a proper light so
far as its relations with the public
are concerned.

the Hotel and sang national songs
cheered, gave their company calls,
and otherwise manifested tlieir delight at having such distinguished
guests with them.
His Honor, who is the head of
the Scout movement in B. C. spoke
to the Boys and Girls concerning
their various activities, and expressed pleasure at meeting them
Saturday evening in the Elks'
Dugout, the Honorable Mr. Bruce
was the guest of the Anyox Branch
of the Canadian Legion B. E. S. L.
at a banquet given in his honor. .
Dr. Lang, the president of the
Legion introduced His Honor to
the members, and in a few well
chosen words extended him a
hearty welcome. A program of
songs by the members was then
presented, interspersed with short
speeches, by H. F. Kergin, M. L.
A. for this riding, and Mr. Chas.
E. Bocking. Community singing,
lustily engaged in by the old
soldiers was an outstanding feature
of the evening. His Honor then
spoke to the "Boys" about the fine
spirit of comradeship which had
been kept alive throughout the
Dominion as a result of these meetings of the men who were "over
there" and of how the morale of the
people as a whole was kept up
during the hard times of readjustment immediately following tbe
great war, by the fine spirit of
hardihood and determination to
carry on in civil life in the face of
difficulties as they did in France.
His Honor also related many of
the interesting details of a trip
which be recently made to the Old
Country. His description of a
cenotaph which he saw in a city in
Scotland proved him to be an ex
ceedingly keen observer with a
very retentive memory and a remarkable gift for description. He
has a keen sense of humor and a gifti|ij
of expression which is rare. In a
simple conversational style he kept
the men interested for fully twenty
minutes with a series of ancedotes,
many of which were humorous.
On his departure the boys all
formed outside the hall and marched down to the boat and gave His
Honor a rousing send off, singing
"Will You No Come Back Again,"
"Auld Lang Syne" etc.
| B. P. 0. Elks, the people of Anyox
are given an opportunity to hear
these wonderful singers.
