Rich Ore Strike Made
On Toric Property
5 cents eaoh.
Another strike of high grade
silver ore has been made on the
Toric property, by Mr. J. Strom-
beck, who has been developing the
property during the past few
weeks.
Two years ago the Toric was
considerably in the limelight,
when a strike of exceptionally
high grade ore was made, and
this latest strike proves still more
conclusively that the Toric hill is
rich in high grade silver ore and
only requires development work to
prove the extent and richness of
the different ledges.
The new strike was made at a
distance of only 150 feet from the
trail to the Wolf property, and 50
feet south of the strike that was
made two years ago. The ledge
has been proven to be six feet wide
and the ore is composed of ruby,
native, aud brittle silver, the ore
also oari'ies galena. Samples
will be sent out for assaying.
As soon as it is possible to get in
supplies Mr. Strombeek will return
and intends to do considerable
development work.
Each year there are rich ore
ledges uncovered in the Kitsault
Valley, and judging from all appearances, this year promises to be
even better than former years,
this being the second big strike
made.
ALICE ARM NOTES   I
New Ore Discovery on
Silver Horde
Mr. A. Davidson recently uncovered a ledge of silver ore on the
Silver Horde property, while doing
development work. The ledge is
12 feet wide, and carries good
silver v
Popular Young Anyox
Lady Weds
Climax Looking Good
That the Climax is a valuable
property and worthy of considerable development work has been
proven by Messrs. J. Seaton and
Jens Larsen, who have been doing
development work there. They
have ■ made a cut 30 feet wide
aoross one ore ledge, and have not
yet found either wall. The ore is
galena, and carries good values.
They also located five ore ledges
where it was thought that only
one existed. The Climax consists
of 2 olaims and joins the Moose
property on the north, and the
Silver Horde on the west.
A very pretty wedding took
place on the morning of Thursday,
July 10th, when Myrtle Sable,
youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
John Swanson was united in marriage to Dr. Arthur M. Gee, of
Victoria. The ceremony was held
at the home of the bride's parents.
Rev. J. Herdman officiating.
The bride looked very charming
in a navy travelling suit and carried a bouquet of pink roses. She
was assisted by her sister, Miss
Edna Swanson, who acted as
bridesmaid and carried a bouquet
of pink aud white carnations.
The groom was supported by Mr.
E. Swanson, the bride's elder
brother.
The Wedding March was played
by Mrs. E. Swanson, aiid during
the signing of the register, "Oh
Promise Me" was sung by Miss
Dill, accompanied by Miss Mc-
Conkey at the piano. I
The house was beautifully decor
ated with evergreens with contrasting colors of pink and white
streamers, and a large wedding
bell in the centre.
After the ceremony, a buffett
supper was served and later the
bridal party and guests motored
to the dock, where the happy
couple bid farewell to their many
friends and relatives as they sailed
away on the S. S. Prince George
on their honeymoon.
After a brief stay at Vancouver

Anyox Baseball
Smelter Defeat Mine
Local  baseball  got under way
again on Monday evening, when
Smelter   met  and   defeated   the
Miners iu a rather loose game, by
the  score  of eight   runs to three.
Ferguson on the mound for the
losers  was  only   touched for six
hits but was accorded poor support
in the pinches.   Fitzpatrick  was
also nicked for six safe hits but
kept them fairly   well scattered.
Cecil Ferguson was the big man
with the stick getting three hits
out of four trips  to the rubber.
By virtue of their win the Smelter
pulled   themselves  up  on a level
with the Elks at the top ofthe
league.   They eaoh have now won
four and lost   three.   While the
Mine have won three and lost five.
The  teams were, Mine:  Clark,
Ferguson, Anderson, Lane, Kirk,
Allen, Dean, Lewis, W. Kirk.
Smelter: McKeown,* Fitzpatrick,
McDougall, Chenoski, Dow, Wells,
Cole, Stewart, Loeske.
Umpires Olsen and Greenwell.

Granby Co's No. 1 Camp
Will Soon Operate
The Granby Co. will, in about
8 or 10 days conolude their logging operations on the ground
adjacent to the Dolly Varden railway for this year. The logging
■ engines etc. will then be taken
across the river to be used in
'logging operations at Camp 1.
The Granby Co. have considerable
ground to log on the Dolly Varden
railway, but will leave it until
some future date.
Everything is now in readiness
to start logging at Camp 1. On
about the 15, of the month when
the tides are highest, a locomotive,
4 cars etc. will be taken over on
scows, and the hauling of logs
will commence.

A team of baseball stars from
Anyox spent a very pleasant afternoon playing ball here with the
local professionals, last Sunday.
After the smoke of battle had
cleared away the score keeper
announced a score of 22 runs to
5 in favor of Alice Arm. The
Fitzpatrick boys were the pick of
the visitors, tho from the comments of the large orowd of rooters
that were present it looks as if
Anyox will have to send up a
stronger team, foi* our nine sure
are playing in First league style.
Jas. McAleenan   made a satis
factory umpire.
The teams lined up as follows:
Anyox: Barney Fitzpatrick,
Basil Fitzpatriok, C. Seworrly,
J. James, H. Hogben, F. Gordon!
A. D. York, O. Flint, D. Roberts!
Alice Ann: Sherman, Biirnieis-
ter, T. W. Falconer, Lee Intermelia, Barney Gray, M. Smith,
Geo, Bruggy, Al. Falconer, H.
Mann.
The Granby Company's men are
busy in the Smelter end of the
town, replacing the plank roads
with .crushed stone and gravel
finishing with a thick layer of slag
on top. When finished, the road
has quite a good appearance and is
much safer and more substantial
than the plank, and at the same
time minimizing the fire hazard in
that part of the town.
The local aggregation of ball
tossers made the trip to Ketchikan
and lost both games of a double
header, to the Alaskans. The
scores were, nine to nothing and
four to three. The first game was
good baseball right up to the
eighth inning, but in this frame
Fitzpatrick weakened and six runs
were chased across the plate.
Four scattered hits was the best
the local boys could do off Kolon-
an's delivery.
Cody was* ou the mound for
Anyox in the second encounter aud
held the opposition scoreless right
up the last inning, in this inning
however the team , went to pieces;
five errors and a base hit gave the
Yanks four Tuns and the game.
Four hits, all of them made by
Ellensburg, was the extent of
Ketchikan's efforts off Cody's
slants, while the Anyox boys
gathered four off Brant, who was
' ou the mound for the winners.
The visitors were shown a thorough good time during their stay
in the Alaskan' town, seats were
reserved for them at the boxing
smoker, the evening of their
arrival, Five good bouts were
witnessed with interest. Immediately after the smoker a
banquet was held in their honor at
the Poodle Dog Grill after which
the entire party retired to the
dance.
Afternoon game, Ketchikan:
Ireland, Kolonan Mcintosh, Tracy,
Lijestand, Harris, Ellensburg, Mc-
Closkey, Miller.
Anyox: Cody, Fitzpatrick; Lame,
Wells, Brown, Greenwell, Down,
Campbell, Hall.
Evening     game,      Ketchikan:
Ireland,    Brant,    Hill.    Bennet,
Liljestrand,   Harris,    Ellensburg,
Peck, Blackmail.
Umpires W. Olsen and Stakpole.
Keystone Co. to do Development Work
The Keystone Mining Co. who
have an option on the Sunset
property on Roundy Creek, have
decided to develop the property
this year. Mr. G. Stenfelt arrived
from Seattle on Monday, and will
have charge of operations. Development work will consist of
driving a tunnel on the ore ledge.
A new building will also be erected
at the mine, and the trail improved
so that supplies can be taken in. ALICE   ARM   AND   ANYOX   HERALD,   Alice Abm,   Saturday, July 12, 1924

Alice Arm Building
Boom Continues
If the building boom at Alice
Arm continues for the next few
years at the same pace as it has
during the past three years, there
will be at the head of the Arm a
town of considerable proportions.
Several biddings are in the
course of construction and several
more are planned to be built before
the next snow flies.
The new home of Mr. H. F.
Kergin on Sea View Heights, midway between the town and wharf,
is well under way, and the interior
finishing is about all that remains
to be done.
Mr. James . McAleenan's new
store building in the down-town
business section of the town, is also
being rushed to completion, and is
now open for business.
The commodious new residence
of Mr. Morris Peterson, near the
Tennis Courts, is fast Hearing completion, and will shortly be ready
for occupation.
Mr. N. P. Wiekstrom is erecting
a bungalow on River Drive, near
Falls Creek, and several smaller
residents have been built on the
Island between. Falls Creek and
the Kitsault River.
Messrs. Dick Roberts and Marshall Smith are planning to build
a residence on the' Island in the
near future, and a business block
will shortly be erected by Mr.
Melton in the business section of
the town.
If the prosperity of a town can
be judged by the number of buildings under construction, Alioe Arm
is among the most prosperous
towns in the province.
Rev. Father Buck Gives
Lecture at Alice Arm
Many a bad egg is married to a
girl because she doesn't like to
drop it.
Rev. Father Buck, of Salem,
Oregon, gave a lecture in the
Coliseum last Sunday evening to
a fair sized audience, which was
thoroughly enjoyed by all present.
His subject was, "The Catholic
Churoh and the Bible." He dwelt
upon the value everyone places on
man's prerogatives, reason and
free will, which place him above
all earthly creation, and make him
like unto God's image and likeness.
He showed how man, through the
abuse of these gifts, disobeyed God,
and was justly doomed to punishment. Then he spoke of the opportunity man has through the
merits of Christ to regain sonship
of God, by exercising his rational
nature. Father Buck spoke of
Christ's being wiser than man,
and therefore having a plan for
the redemption of man, and that
Christ founded a Church into
which He placed all those things
necessary for redemption, if man
would use his prerogatives and cooperate with the grace God willingly gives. An interesting point-
in the lecture, whether we agree
with Father Buck or not, was the
principal of the Catholic and
Protestant churches. The latter
take the Bible and self iuterpretion
for the basis of their faith, while
the Catholics, who compiled and
declared which books belong to the
Bible and which are inspired, take
the Bible and tradition, since the
Bible was riot always available
to all, and all interpreted by the
Church which Christ founded,.for
their principle. He also gave a
short history of the Bible. Father
Buck is a pleasing speaker and
held his audience throughout,
Often the thread of discourse is
only a raveling.
