Alice Arm Citizens'
Association Held
The regular monthly meeting of
'j the Alice Arm Citizens Association
\l was held in the Anglican Church
Building,   on   Saturday  evening,
j September  30th.      The   meeting
; was well attended, and a considerable    amount   of   business   was
I. transacted.      Vice-President   A.
Falconer presided.
A letter from President Cameron
tendering his resignation, was
: read and accepted. Nominations
were then made for the vacancy.
Mr. H. Fowler was nominated by
Mr. Biel, and Mr. C. P. Biel was
nominated by Mr. S. Dumas.
Mr. Fowler, declined in favor of
Mr. Biel, who was declared elected
and took the Chair.
Letters written  regarding  the
float at the Government Wharf,
Alice Arm-Naas Valley Trail, and
Book Drilling Contest at the Prince
Bupert Fair, to Mr. F. Stork, M.P.,
Dr. Sutherland, and Mr. G. Kerr
respectively, were read, and on a
•motion by Mr. Peterson, seconded
.by Mr. Bruggy, the correspondence
! was filed.
The first business to be-taken up
was the matter of operating evening classes during the winter, in
| conjunction' with the Northern
Polytechnic Institute. Considerable discussion, ensued, and it was
.finally resolved that as Alice Arm
would be assessed $150 for the
maintenance of the head office in
vPrinoe Bupert, that it was better
to leave the matter in obeyance
; for the present, and that if classes
i were operated this year, that they
should be purely local. A motion
J was made by Mr. G. Stromheok,
seconded by Mr. A. Falconer, that
the seoretary be instructed to write
to the Direotor of the Northern
Polytechnic Institute and explain
the situation to him. A motion
was then made by Mr. Moss, seconded by Mr. Peterson, that a
special meeting be called on Tuesday evening, for the purpose of
further discussing the organizing
of classes for the coming winter.
Owing to the fact that the foot
bridge across the Kitsault Biver,
has been washed out, the subject
of building a permanent bridge
was again brought up for disouss-
ion, and Mr. A. Falconer suggested
that the bridge could probably be
built by the citizens of the town
during the winter and the government refund the money next
summer. The Chairman suggested
appointing a committee to investigate the best site for a bridge,
and that Mr. Geo. Young, road
superintendent, make an estimate
of the approximate oost, to be presented at a special meeting of the
association to be held on Saturday,
Ootober 14th. The committee
appointed, were: Messrs. G. Young,

and judging by the display of enthusiasm the Club promises to be
one of the foremost organizations
in Anyox.

Two Accident Cases in
Anyox from Stewart
Two accident oases arrived at
Anyox Hospital, on Thursday,
from the Stewart district, the two
men being J. Hurrell, from the
Premier mine, and T. Skuglund,
senr., from the B. C. Silver mines.
Both men are well known locally,
Mr. Hurrell having operated a
diamond drill at Anyox, for Boyle
Bros., and Mr. Skuglund is well
known both in Alice Arm and
Anyox as a miner. Mr. Skuglund
had the misfortune to have a rook
strike him on the head. Both men
are doing well
Born at Anyox Hospital, on
Tuesday, Ootober 3rd, to Mr. and
Mrs. A. J. Collison, of Kincoloth,
a daughter.
Logging Camps,
Will be Operated
That extensive logging operations will shortly be carried on at
Alice Arm, is now an assured fact.
Mr. J. E. Taylor, who arrived in
Alice Arm on Thursday, stated in
an interview with the Herald, that;
it is the intention of Trethewey
Bros, to log their holdings on the
Kitsault flats. Two other timber
limits have been acquired by
Trethewey Bros, from the' Granby
Co., Mr. Taylor putting the deal
through last Thursday. These
limits are situated on the water
front, one being located near town
and the other at the mouth of the
Illiance Biver, and both of these
limits will also be logged. Mr.
Taylor stated that Trethewey Bros,
would be here in two or three
weeks, and then it would be definitely settled whether the building
of camps would be commenced this
year, or wait until the spring, but
whatever happened, logging operations would start next spring just
as soon as the snow was off the
ground. It is the intention to haul
the logs out of the woods by railway, and operations will be carried
on here for two or three years.
It is the intention'-, of Trethewey
Bros, to log all the land they can
acquire, as a contract has been
made with the Ocean Falls Co,
whereby they will take all the logs
that can be cut.
Mr. Taylor realizes that the
timber here is affected by smelter
smoke, and is anxious to log it off
before it is useless for pulp.
Mr. J..Trethewey, while here,
will also examine the Bunker Hill
property, in which he holds a
half interest, with a view of developing it.
Surprise Party at Anyox
A large number of friends paid
a surprise visit to the Union
Church Manse, on Thursday, of
last' week, it being- the occasion of
Mrs. Herdman's birthday. Mrs.
Herdman was taken completely by
surprise. The guests raided the
manse at 8 p.m., bringing with
them good things to eat, including
a large birthday cake. Mrs. Byan
presented the host with six silver
coffee spoons. A most jolly evening was spent in music, singing
and games.

had been ordered. Dean Quainton,
the eminent lecturer, would visit
Anyox and would lecture on Friday. October 20th, and possibly on

matter of the old gymnasium
building, Mr. C. Wing.could see no
reason why it shouldn't be used by
Bev. Herdman and Bev. Gibson.
Gymnasium equipment had been
advertised for and a letter of
enquiry forwarded to the Canada
Ordnance Department.
Mr. Seidelman reported in connection with the Becreation
Department, and told of progress

would be presented at some later
Mr. Murdoch reported in connection with a dancing class,
which will be conducted in the
Library under the auspices of the
League during the winter months.
Mr. Noel introduced the matter
of the Mine Building again, and as
it was a question which would be
cropping up from time to time
before its final completion, to avoid
waste of time, he suggested and
finally made a motion to the effect
that it should be left with the
Ways and Means Committee to
deal with.. This motion was seconded by Mr. Bowley. Mr.
Armour objected to this procedure,
as did also Mr. Murdoch and Mr.
Buzzelle, but the Chairman thought
it a good move under the circumstances. The motion carried on a
division, and the matter placed
with the Ways and Means Committee.
Mr. Murdoch was of the opinion
that the Ways and Means Committee be abolished. The Chairman, however, knew that it had
produced excellent results and had
more  than justified its appoint-
Alice Arm to Form
a Debating Society
A public meeting was held in the
Anglican Church Building, on
Tuesday evening, for the purpose
of discussing the organization of
evening classes for the winter
months. A large number of people
were present, the fair sex being
well represented.
Mr. C. P. Biel, who was elected
Chairman, gave an outline of why
the meeting was called and favored the formation of a Debating
Society. A general discussion
followed, and it was the opinion of
the meeting, that a Debating
Society should be formed, aud so
help to spend the evenings in an
interesting arid instructive manner.
Mr. M. D. Boss proposed that an
organization Committee be formed,
for the purpose of obtaining members, and that they submit their
report at a further meeting to be
held on Tuesday next. A motion
was made by Mr. T. W- Falconer,
seconded by Mr. G. Bruggy, that
the Chairman appoint a committee,
and the following were appointed:
Messrs. M. D. Boss, H. Fowler,
Mrs. B. F. McGinnis, Miss B.
The matter of sewing classes for
the ladies was then taken up, and
as they had no programme outlined, it was thought advisable to
leave the matter until Tuesday
Bert Kergin back from
Attending Convention
Bert Kergin, M.L.A. returned
home on Thursday, from the big
Liberal Convention, at Nelson.
He says that the press reports of
the Convention have been misleading, and that no resolutions regarding the P.G.E. or the return to the
return to the patronage. system
had been made. Premier Oliver
said if the Civil Service was not
satisfactory, it would be made so.
In the matter of the new Beaoh
gymnasium, Mr. Murdoch said he
had been informed that the building would oost #7,000, while the
Council had been informed that
the cost was to be $4,000. That
was the cost of the four walls only.
Mr. Armour thought it good business if the League could get a
seven thousand dollar building for
four thousand.
Mr. Armour asked when a statement of the League's financial
standing would be forthcoming.
Mr. Lowry, replying, stated that a
Profit and Loss Statement to the
end of July would be available in
the course of a few days.
Mr. Murdoch wanted to know
about the salaries of the League
employees. He had heard that
they were to be cut, and he
thought they should be raised with
the rest of the camp. The Chairman informed Mr. Murdoch that
the whole question had been gone

Debating Society
for Alice Arm.
It was decided at the meeting
held   on   Tuesday   last,   that  a
Debating Society would be formed
at Alice Arm at an early date.
The organization will be open to
both men and women, and it is
hoped that everyone will join up
and also take part in the debates.
No fees whatever are required,
and   everyone   will   be given a
chance to speak.   It is proposed
to hold a debate on some selected
subject once a week, to be followed by a dance or some other form
of social entertainment.   The success of the organization depends
entirely upon the support given it
by the people of the town, and the
number of persons -who take part
in the dabates.   Don't make the
excuse that you can't talk on a
public platform, because everyone
else who will speak are also only
beginners, and you will not be an
exception.   Start at the beginning,
and carry on throughout the winter.
Don't leave it all for someone else
to provide  the  enjoyment,  and
don't say the town is dead, unless
you are doing your part to make it
otherwise.   Attend the meeting to
be held on Tuesday evening, and
take an active interest in the welfare work of the town.

Interests o£ everybody.
■ Mr. Armour wanted to know the
toot location of the new building
lit the Beaoh. He also requested
information regarding the skating
•ink. as proposed. Mr. Bowley
told of having turned Mr. Wet-
'uore's plans over to Mr. Smith,
for further information. Mr.
;Wetmore said the work would cost
oetween six and seven hundred
lollars, while Mr. Smith thought
iihat it could be done cheaper.
lir. Bowley stated that he and
IMr. Seidelman had lists whioh
JiSBiired a membership already of
!,iver eighty who were willing to
■pay live dollars for a season's
ticket if the rink was gone ahead
The matter of a drive for members was brought up by Mr.
Murdoch, and it was decided to
institute this at an early date.
The matter of a toboggan slide was
discussed, and, Mrs. Eve said it
had been a yearly topic for a long
The question of the different
functions staged from time to time
by the organizations of Anyox
came up. It was thought that
there would be no overlapping or
dashing of dates for these entertainments if representatives of the
various organizations got together
and worked out a plan of cooperation.
When the meeting was thrown
(open, for discussion, Mr. McAlister
made a plea that the grant for the
purchase of new Library material
be increased to $35 per month.
This oaused considerable discussion as to ways and means of
providing reading material for the
Library. Mrs. Eve thought that
a lot of books oould be secured if a
request was made to the householders of Anyox for books they
might not require. Mr. Armour
thought that in any scheme for
adding new books to the Library
the matter of text books which
might be available for night olasses
be considered.
Granby Co. Bonds
Another Property
The Granby Consolidated Mining,
Smelting and Power Co., Ltd, have
taken a bond on the outsider group of
claims, situated at Maple Bay, about
35 miles down the Portland Canal
from Stewart, and active development
work is to start at once.
In this connection, Vince Lade,
James Lade, and Monty Howe, of
Stewart, have taken a contract to
drive a 200-ft. raise for an air shaft,
and also to do other work in the form
of tunneling, with a view to develop
the ore bodies already to a great
extent opened up,
The property, which is situated
within ono mile of the beach, was
located by Wm. Noble and G, M.
Collison in 1003, and was sold by them
to the Brown-Alaska Company, in
1005, who, after doing considerable
development work, commenced active
mining operations, and shipped 11,500
tons of ore to the Hadley smelter,
Prince of Wales, Island, Alaska.
Abojit 1908, new interests acquired the
property, and held it for a period of
years, and in 1917 spent something like
$35,000 in development work, driving
a new tunnel on the south end of the
vein, giving a total depth to the ore of
over i00 feet.

Alice Arm Citizens'
Association Meeting
Continued from page 1.
A. Falconer,   G.   Strombeok,   M.
Peterson, C. P. Biel.
A motion was made by Mr.
Fowler, seconded by Mr. Strombeek
that a special meeting be called on
Saturday, October 14th. for the
purpose of presenting to the government a list of the vital needs of
the district in regard to bridges,
roads and trails.
In regard to the large amount of
first-class timber that is dying in
this district, it was stated by the
Chairman that further investiga^
tions had been made by the Forestry Department, Mr, D. Archie, of
Prince Bupert, making an inspection last week, and it was found
that the gas of the Granby Company's smelter at Anyox, is
responsible for the killing of the
timber, and that the moths attaok
the trees as soon as the sap commences to dry out, by laying eggs
under the bark, and the insects
hatched out, bore their way into
the tree, thus hastening the decay
of the timber. A motion was then
made by Mr. G. Young, seconded
by Mr. A. Falconer, that the secretary be instructed to write to the
Forestry Department, calling their
attention to the fact that a large
amount of valuable timber is being
destroyed and asking that means
be found to have it logged off
before it becomes a total loss.
