Development on Matilda
Proving Large Ore
Bodies
Development work now proceeding on the Matilda property near
the Kitsault Glacier, is proving
that this property possesses immense possibilities, and from all
indications will eventually prove
that in the Matilda Alice Arm has
one of its richest mines. The property is being developed by the
Kitsault River Mining & Development Co., Ltd.
The majority of work done so
far this year has been surface stripping and open cuts on the famous
Matilda ore body. This ore body
has now been traced for a distance
of over 1000 feet, and the open
cuts have proved that the ore is of
a high quality. Samples of this
ore were recently brought down,
and oomprises almost solid galena
with yellow oopper. Previous assays have shown that this galena
runs high in silver and the oopper
also carries high gold values. The
Matilda vein has a north-west and
-south-easterly strike, dipping into
the hill towards the west at an
angle of from 45 to 50 degrees.
Tho tunnel commenced by theown-
ers some time ago is being extended
to the foot wall of the ore vein, in
order to ascertain the ore values
on the foot wall and also procure
the definite angle of the dip. Another tunnel fifty feet lower down
the hill will be driven. This tunnel will give a much greater depth
on the ore body, and eventually
prove up a large tonnage of ore.
Open outs are also being driven
on an ore vein paralleling the
Matilda vein, with excellent results. This vein has been traced
on the surfaoe for over 500 feet,
and further development work
will undoubtedly prove it to be of
muoh larger extent. The property possesses another big fissure
vein, which carries high gold
values, and whioh will also be
developed at a later date.
Oscar Flint is iu oharge of development work. He is a praotioal
mining man well known in the
north, and under his supervision
we are confident that with sufficient funds available, the Matilda
will eventually develop into a big
tonnage producer.

Crowds Attend Circus
Performance at Anyox
Seats Collapse During
Evening Show
Buller's circus, whose headquarters are at Viotoria, paid a
visit to Anyox at the beginning of
the week, and on Monday, two
performances were given. The
afternoon performance was well
attended, and at the evening performance the seating capacity was
filled, about 800 being present.
The show was of a high standard
and everyone attending were well
satisfied, with the evening's entertainment. All the old time circus
stunts were there, including
trapeze, and wire walking performers, trained animals, clowns,
side shows, etc. This is the first
time a cirons has visited Anyox,
and if the same show returns they
can be satisfied that they will play
to a full house again.
During the evening performance a regrettable accident oocur-
ed when a section of the seats
collapsed, precipitating about 200
people to the ground. Mrs. Lyons,
who resides at the Larcon Island
sawmill, received a sprained ankle
and bruises, and N. Marshall had
the ijiisfortune to break a small
bone in his leg. Mrs. Lyons left
for her home the following day.
Mr. Marshall is progressing favorably.
The circus has visited Prince
Rupert and Ketchikan, and will
visit Stewart, Ocean Falls and
Powell River before returning to
Victoria.
They have the S.S. Otter under
charter for the trip.

Alice Arm Chamber of
Mines Branch Hold
Meeting
The monthly meeting of the
Alice Arm branch of the B. C.
Chamber of Mines was held at the
Pioneer Hotel on Monday evening.
The meeting was well attended,
over thirty being present, and a
keen interest was taken in the
proceedings. The chair was taken
by W. B. Bower.
Secretary A. D. Yorke read the
minutes of the preceding meeting
whioh were adopted.
. It was deoided to take steps for
the forwarding of an ore exhibit to
the Prince Rupert exhibition, and
to have this ore display located in
a permanent place iu Prinoe
Rupert after the exhibition, prefer-
rably on the C. N. R. wharf, where
an ore exhibit is already looated.
A. E. Haggen, mining writer
for the Daily Province, who was
present at the meeting was asked
by the chairman to say a few
words on the mining situation of
the province. Mr. Haggen spoke
for about forty minutes, and gave
the history and production of
several big mines of the provinoe,
including the Hidden Creek mine
of Anyox, and the big Sullivan
mine at Kimberly. He was amaz
ed at the large attendance at the
meeting, and stated that he had
never seen as much interest taken
in mining as at Alice Arm. He
voiced his disappointment at being
unable to examine the two proper
ties he especially came to see. He
was of the opinion that mining
was the backbone of provincial
prosperity, and while lumbering,
fishing, etc. helped considerably,
mining would beourchief industry
Elks Pile Up Big Score
Against The Mine
Baseballers
The Elks were victorious over
the Miners, in the third game of
the Post-season series for the Baseball Cup, by an eleven to two
score. Cecil Ferguson was in fine
form on the mound for the winners, allowing but four hits, three
of whioh came in the first inning,
accounting for the loser's two mils.
Jimmy Ferguson was touohed for
twelve bingles, but the score
would not have been so bad had he
been accorded any kind of support
Ray Ingram supplied the field
ing feature when he made a nice
running catch off Allen's Texas
leaguer in the fourth inning. Ingram was also the star with the
stick, getting three hits out of as
many trips to the plate.

Ye Ancient Game Won
By Coke Plant
The Club House and Coke Plant
having gained no satisfaction of
supremacy upon the baseball field,
have diverged to a different method
of endeavour, namely, the ancient
game of horse shoes. A tournament was staged at the Coke
Plant ou Wednesday evening,
when the Coke Makers completely
annihilated the men from "Our
Boarding House," by taking five
out of the six contests.
The scores were as follows:
Sheen and Wilson, 21; Davis
and Hutchings 18.
Mclntosli and Gosetto, 21; Eaton
and Salter, 11.
Harman and Eakin, 12; Salter
and Gordon 21.
Wilson and Jones, 21; Hutchings and Davis 10.
Sheen and Gosetto, 21; Eaton
and Gordon 8.
Mcintosh and Harmon, 21; Salter and Gordon 3.
The Club House, however, intend to. redeem themselves when
they play a return match at the
Club House grounds on Sunday
evening. They also wish to take
this opportunity to throw out a
challenge to meet any organization
iiv any of the following games:
horse shoes, pool, billiards, tennis,
ping-pong, croquet, checkers, chess
or marbles.
Overland Trip Made From
Alice Arm to Stewart
and Return
To those who delight in hiking
and exploring new country, a trip
from Alice Arm to Stewart might
meet with their approval, that
this can be done in a minimum
space of time has been proven by
J. Nick, who returned from a
round trip recently. He went by
way of tlie Kitsault Glacier and
came into Stewart via the Bitter
Creek Glacier, On his return he
changed his route and left Stewart by way of the Marmot river.
He was away two weeks. The
trip to Stewart consumed four
days, and three were taken for the
return trip, and a week was spent
at Stewart.
J. Nick is an expert woodsman,
trapper and prospector, and
thought very lightly of the trip,
which to some would be of considerable magnitude.
E. A. Haggen Pays Visit to
District
E. A. Haggen, mining engineer
and writer for the Daily Province
arrived in town on Monday, with
the idea of looking over our most
promising mining properties. He
left on Tuesday for Anyox, where
he made an examination of the
big plant and left on Friday for
Vancouver.
Messrs. J. Barclay, Stewart McLachlan and Ted Swanson are
spending holidays at Alice Arm. ALICE   ARM  AND   ANYOX  HERALD,   Monday,   August  31,   1925

Children Have a Big
Time Elks' Flag Day
The fifth annual Flag and Children's Day, held by the Anyox
B.P.O. Elks on August 15th. was
up to its usual high standard of
previous years. This big event for
the children of Anyox had to be
postponed twice owing to unfavorable weather, and the 15th. was
the final clay decided to hold the
celebration. The Flag Day is held
in commemoration of the entry of
the British Empire into the world
war which was on August 4th.
1914, and the event is celebrated
by all Elk lodges thoughout
Canada.
The celebration commenced at 2
p.m. when the children formed a
procession at the Elks' Home, and
paraded to the Ball Grounds, headed by the Elk's clown jazz band
composed of Messrs .Steele,Craggs,
Wilson, Buntain, Jones. Cameron
and Happle. Before starting, each
child was given a squaker, balloon,
Hag, tickler, cane and hat, and the
whole parade "composed a gay
scene.
Arriving at the grounds the
Boy Scouts raised the Union Jack,
and an appropriate address was
given by Rev. C. D. Clarke, in
which he traced the history of the
grand old ensign, and with specially painted cards, gave a vivid
illustration of how the word
"Union" came to be included in
the name of the flag.
Sports were then held, and
twenty-eight events were carried
to a successful conclusion. Refreshments in abundance were on
hand throughout the afternoon,
comprising ice cream, lemonade,
peanuts, etc., and evening brought
to a conclusion, one of the happiest
days in the lives of the juvenile
population of the town, and iii the
eyes of all the kiddies, the "Brother
Bills" of Anyox are brothers not
only in name, but in deeds.
The success of the day's entertainment was due to a large extent
to the following, who had charge
of the proceeedings: Messrs. C.
Parmiter, C. Gray, C. McLachlan,
H. Kirk, B. Sheen, F. Kelley, J.
Buntain, D. Wilson, P. Wishart,

Sunday Services are announced
has been erected on the front of
the Churoh. The front steps have
been reinforced, The vestibule has

been built in the basement and is
provided with cook stove, sink and
cupboard, also tables made for
social occasions. Tlie coal shed
has been rebuilt and roofing put
ou.
Chalmers United Church, Van
oouver has very kindly donated a
generous supply of hymn books.
On the evening of September 2nd.
a bee for cleaning the Church is
being held, when it is expected
that the men as well as the women
will turn out to give a helping
hand and enjoy a social hour.
The winter's programme will
commence on September 6th. with
a Sunday School Rally. It is expected that all the children of the
Sunday School will be present at
11.30 a.m., when they will be
properly graded into classes. An
interesting programme is being arranged. The Evening Service
will be in the interests of the Sunday School; when the minister will
speak on the subjeot "The Child in

boys will be organized and will
meet at 10 a.m. eaoh Sunday.
The evening services are being
made interesting and helpful.
The minister, Rev. C. D. Clark, is
preaching sermons on praotioal and
common sense religion, such as are
needed in this northern country.
At a recent meeting of tlie
Church Board of Managers, it was
decided to hold a social hour at
the close of the evening service, on
the last Sunday in each month.
The men from the rooming houses
are particularly invited.
It is hoped that the people will
turn out and help and -boost the
work of the Church in Anyox.

The first shipment of Porter
Idaho ore for. this season was sent

Eight hundred sacks were transferred to the ship from a soow in

on the beach at the lower end of
the Marmot trail, from which a
chute is dropped to a soow at high'

with a minimum of effort. This
shipment is the first of a series

Provincial  Legislature
Will Meet October
26th.
VICTORIA, August 24-The
Legislature has been called to
meet on Monday, October, 26th.
Members were asked for an opinion
by the Premier regarding the date,
whether the session should be held,
as for the past four years, in the
fall or, as was formerly the practice,
in the spring. The weight of
opinion was for the continuance
of recent practice. There is not
much government legislation in
prospect at the present time" and
it is expected that what there is to
be will be ready early in the
session. A bill dealing with the
water situation around Vancouver
is likely to be one of the chief
measures before the House, and
this will in all probability be in
the direction of appointing a single
board to manage water affairs for
Vancouver and the surrounding
municipalities.
Increase of Forest Fires
This Year
The total number of forest fires
which have been reported to tlie
Forest Branch up to August 15 is
1913, as compared with 1621 up to
the same date last year, and only
954 to that date in 1923. It was
hoped that the rain that fell would
have some influence in reducing
the fires, but in spite of that there
were 211 outbreaks reported last
week. On the coast, however, the
situation has eased considerably.
Sixty-two fires were caused by one
electric storm, and one of the
worst of the coast fires, whioh destroyed twenty homes of settlers,
was due to the snapping of a steel
cable and the ignition of a dead
tree ' by friction. The present
hazardous conditions are common
to the entire Pacific northwest,
and in the states adjoining British
Columbia great loss is being experienced. The cost of forest
patrols in this Provinoe is given
by the Minister of Mines as being
one-half cent per acre.
Send a copy of the Herald to
your friends'who are interested in
mining or furnish us with their
address and we will mail them a
sample copy.
