Terrific   Wind   Storm
Suddenly Strikes Alice
Arm District
Gas Launch  Wrecked And
Another Believed To Have
On Wednesday night, Alice
Arm experienced the worst wind
storm that has occurred within the
memory of the oldest inhabitants.
The storm broke suddenly about
7,30 p.m. and raged until the early
hours of the morning. Extensive
damage was done, especially to the
timber down the inlet and also iu
the vicinity of town. No lives
were lost, although there were
some narrow escapes. Mr. Jim
Wintermute was extremely^ unfortunate, he lost his launch, Vesta,
a 45-ft boat, and well-known
throughout the northern   waters.
Before the storm broke the air
was perfectly still, and those who
were outside were wondering at
the peculiar roar that was audible
from down the inlet. This roar
grew louder until the timber could
be heard crashing across the bay,
and later close to town, and then
the storm broke in full blast.
For a time it was a continual
crashing of timber as the trees
were uprooted on the flats and
along the hillside west of the town.
No extensive damage, .however,
was caused to any of the buidings,
most of the trees in the town holding theuvowa.
High as the wind was in the
town, down the inlet it was much
more severe, and did more damage
both to timber and property. The
launch "Vesta" owned by Mr. Jim
Wintermute was driven ashore
and pounded to pieces.
The indirect cause of the wreck
was a break-down of the engine.
The "Vesta" had been commissioned by Mr. Herb Butler for repairing the government telegraph line,
and as the engine would not work,
Frank Narmour took her in tow to
Alice Arm, and aboard of her was
Jim Wintermute, H. Butler and A.
D. Yorke. After a start had been
made the storm broke, and a big
sea swept Narmour's boat, disabling the engine. Narmour threw
out the anchor which finally held
and rode the storm. The "Vesta"
was driven rapidly ashore, aud as
she struck the rocks, the three
men jumped and landed safely
about two miles below J. ■ Wheat-
ley's logging camp, to which they
walked, arriving in the early hours
of the morning. The Vesta was
pounded to pieces, as was also the
government dinghy. At the time
the Vesta struck, it was blowing so
hard, it was impossible to stand
Loss Of Second Boat and Lives
It is thought that a second boat
has been wrecked with a loss of
life. Various articles have been
picked up on the beach and in the
water, that did not belong to the
Vesta. Herb. Butler also saw a
light from the Vesta when she was
drifting ashore, and the light disappeared.
The bunkhouse at J. Wheatley's
logging oamp was smashed by a
falling tree, and the filing house
was torn to pieces by the wind.
Their residence was also struck by
a flying tree top, which damaged
the roof, aud the wind also twisted
the building.
Mrs. Wheatley stated to the
Herald yesterday, that the waves
coming inshore were forty feet high
and rocks and gravel was picked
Anglican Church Hold
Annual Entertainment
And Concert
The annual concert and entertainment, held under the auspices
of tho Anglican Church, on Wednesday evening, at the Becreation
Hall, was a marvellous exhibition
of perfect aoting and the numbers
rendered by the vocal artists was
of a very high order; The quality
of the evening's entertainment was
an agreeable surprise to the large
number present, and great credit
for the splendid success is due to
all those who contributed to the
programme.    .
Mr. Vic. Cruikshank was in his
usual good form and as a producer
of mirth, lived up to his reputation
Mr. Ed. Yard was described on
the programme as "The Favorite
Monologist." and the manner in
which he rendered "The Madman's
Sililoquy" was a masterpiece, and
added considerably to his popularity.
The vocal numbers were exceptionally good and were heartily
Mrs. J. Conway sang "Carisrima"
encore, "Queen of the Earth."
Miss Violet McKay, "The Enchanted Glade," encore, An Old-
F&hio'ned town."
Mr. R. W. Murdoch, "A Sailor's
Grave," encore "My ain wee Hoose"
Mr. W. F. Eve, "The Sunshine
of your Smile," encore, Melisande."
Two sketches were staged under
the direction of Mr. F> M. 'Kelley.
The first was entitled, "A Cold
Finish." The scene was the home
of a wealthy lady who had sprained her ankle, and possessed a very
jealous husband. An insurance
agent has forced his way ins and
her efforts to get rid of him before
her husband's return created much
The part of Mrs. Van Beautie
was taken by Miss Rowena Champion, and that of Mr. Wright A.
Po]icy, by Mr. George Warwick.
Both these parts were well played
and place the performers in the
professional class. Mr. E. Boles
acted'as the Iceman.
The second sketch was entitled,
"The Cabman and the Lady."
The part of Vivian Van Sittart
was taken by Mrs. D. Cole, and
that of the cabman, Patrick, Dwyer
by Mr. James Mitchell, and that
of Adolphus Van Sittart, by Mr.
Gibson. Mrs. Cole and Mr, Mitchell were exceptionally good in
the parts played by them.
The accompaniments were played by Mrs. Pym and Messrs. F.
Dresser, J. Austin and H. D.
Messrs. Percy Davis and Edgar
Ashton acted as ushers. Mr,
James Thompson attended to the
curtain and Mr. Paddy Ryan deo-
orated the stage.
up from the beach by the wind and
the air was full of flying limbs and
tops of trees.
The roofs of the buildings at
Miles Donald's logging camp were
partly torn off, and the men spent
the night on the shore by an open
fire. The timber near the camp is
completely flattened out, in some
sections not a tree is left standing.
Big Ore Ledge Is
Being Crosscut
On Toric
Twelve Feet Wide & Carries
Native Silver
The ore vein on the Toric property, for which the crosscut tun-
was being driven was encountered
during the early part of the week.
Reports received in town on
Wednesday evening before the telephone wires went down during the
storm, was that the drill had crosscut between six and seven feet of
ore, and the hanging wall had not
yet been reached. It was also
stated that the ore was of good
quality, being" spattered throughout with native silver.
The ore vein was struck at a
distance of 220 feet from the portal of the tunnel, and the vertical
depth obtained is 160 feet
The vein runs in an easterly
and westerly direction, and has
been traced on the surface for a
distance of 400 feet. It dips into
the hill at an angle of about 65 degrees.
Another vein parallels the one
described above. It is a short distance up the hill, it is 8 feet wide
and has been traced on the surface
for a distance of 900 feet.
If all reports received during the
week /are correct, it means that
the Kitsault valley will shortly be
the scene of a mining boom, as it
will prove that bodies of high-
grade ore are located in the valley
outside of the Dolly Varden
ground. The Torio is the first
silver property that has been de
veloped by a mining Co., since the
close-down of the Dolly Varden,
and the ease with which ore has
been discovered, will encouragement to other companies to develop adjacent properties,
The Torio joins the North Star
property on the east, which joins
the Dolly Varden. The Toric is
on the opposite side of the river
from the Dolly Varden.
Owing to the recent heavy snowfall, regular communication with
the Toric has not been maintained.
We hope, however, to publish a
full report of the strike in our next
Latest News Is Encouraging
Just as we were commencing to
tune up the presses yesterday
evening for the weekly run, word
was received direct from the Toric
that the ore ledge had been crosscut twelve feet, and that the hanging wall had not yet been reached.
The ore also carried native silver
which was getting richer towards
the hanging wall.
Keystone Co. Will Develop
Sunset Property
That the Keystone Mining Co.
will proceed with development
work on the Sunset property and
pay their debts is the statement of
Mr. Oscar Gray, who returned
from Seattle last Saturday, after
conferring with officials of the
company. It will be remembered
that the Keystone Co. closed down
work on the Sunset some time ago,
and a lien for wages was put on
the property.
Anyox Basketballers
Have Busy Week
Three games were staged at the
Beach Gymnasium on Monday
evening. The High School Intermediates won from the Coke Plant
17 to 9. The Students were too
fast for their opponents and were
superior in all departments of the
game. •
The teams were:
High School: E. Clay, H. Clay,
Dupuis, MacLachlan; McDonald,
Coke Plant: Mackie, Thompson,
Gow, Bealeau and Wilson.
The Bluebirds turned in their
third win of the season when they
won from the the Pioneers 26 to
21. Although the Pioneers are
showing considerable improvement
they were no match for their more
experienced opponents. However
it is expeoted that the losers will
do better later on in the season.
The teams were:
Pioneers: Misses P. O'Niel, Stevens, R. O'Niel, M. O'Niel and
M. Dupuis.
Bluebirds: Mesdames Smith,
McTaggart, Dwyer, McQuarrie
and Crone.
In the Senior League game the
Muckers turned in their first win
of the season at the expense of the
Coke Plant, the score was 21 to 19.
The game was nip and tuck from
start to finish and proved very exciting to the fans.
The teams, were:
Mine: Lane, Mitohell, Dean,
McNichol Halverson.
Coke Plant: Yorke, Campbell.
Hogben, Thomson and C. Thomson.
The Mine Intermediates defeated the Rovers at the Mine Gymnasium on Monday evening by the
score of 29 to 12. The score stood
even during the first half but in
the second session the Rovers
cracked and were snowed under
a flock of baskets.
Rovers: H. Ballion, Doc Simmons, Buntaiu, Gordon, Coke and
Mine: L. Moore, Peters, V.
Moore, Moffat, and Swanson.
The Lady Miners accounted for
the High School girls to the tune
of 37 to 8. The girls from the
hill were in fine form and were
never in danger.
The teams were: H. S. Isses,
J. Morley, M. O'Niel, T. Deith,
Jean Moffat, Bonny Chapman and
A. McLachlan.
Mine: .Misses Dean, J. Calderone,
G. Rashleigh, H. Calderone, M.

Black and White Night
On The
Mine Club Again Scores In
Social Success
Attracted by the novelty of the
affair, and anticipating a particularly jolly evening, many Beach
visitors joined their neighbors up
on the hill Tuesday evening, when
the Mine Club entertained at a
"Black and White" Dance, and
recorded a brilliant success. A
more striking decorated hall has
seldon greeted a gathering than
did for this occasion. Done in
simple lines, after the Old English
style, black and white were the
only two shades used, with the exception of the "moon" whose soothing beam flashed out in bright
red, and formed a colorful contrast.
From a black back-ground, was
suspended a huge spider web, depicting the "parlor" of a fair maid,
attractively dressed and bewitch-
ingly tempting mere men (the fly)
into her net. The ingenuity of
this decorative scheme came into
much favorable comment. At the
opposite end of the hall, a banner
completely covered tlie balcony
rails, on which was inscribed the
Club's slogan: "Everyone Needs a
Playtime." Black and White
striped light shades completed the
picture. To the accompaniment of
the Elks' orchestra, who performed with their usual success, the
dances were repeatedly encored.
The suppei' intermission too, was
not the least successful item of the
evening. To the cakes provided
by the ladies, was added tlie Club's
own bill of fare, giving plentiful
refreshments. The novelty of the
evening was made complete by the
patrons, the majority of whom
dressed to the scheme of black and
white. At 2 a.m the committee
wrote "finis" to their efforts—for
a while. They are planning a
"Master Masquerade" for an early
"Pig-skin" and "Glory-
Hole" At Mine Hall
For neatness of entertainment,
suiting as it did, every imaginable
taste, no better attraction has been
put on in months, than was the
smoker staged by the Mine Club
on Thursday evening. There
were no less than six boxing bouts,
an equal number of vaudeville
"turns," a hot-dog supper, and
smokes galore served up by a hard
working committee, who were
showered with congratulations at
the close of the show.
Generous applause greeted the
spirited scrapping, and whilst comparisons are odious, yet mention
must be made of the emphatic hit
made by "Pig-skin" Dearlove and
"Glory-hole" Peters. Here the
Mine football team appeared in a
new role, and they performed to a
reception that brought down the
Arscott and Francis were also
strong cards. The latter, although
suffering from severe cold, bravely
entered the ring, rather than disappoint the audience. This sportsmanlike action greatlj pleased the
fans. Verge Moore and M. Mitchell put up a good scrap, the former giving great promise of future
achievements. Then there were
the "Whirlwind Kids" (Moffat and
Brown) and "Slim and Slats"
(L, Moore and G. Moffat) who
gave the ring-side seats a rare

The small town postmaster is
one of the most faithful and efficient officials who serve the Canadian people. Hampered by red
tape and burdened by many duties
they perform their services with
admirable completeness which is
rarely appreciated by their towns
folk. Nobody pays any attention
when the mail arrives on time; it
is only when the mail is late that
the postmaster's name is mentioned.
The postmaster's busiest time of
the year has now commenced,
and he should receive some consideration from the public. Post
your letters and parcels early and
help solve the congestion problems
confronting the staff of the Post
Office. Don.t blame the Post
Office staff if your letters and parcels do not arrive until after
Christmas. They are doing their
best and no man can do more.
Lots of men and some business
men do not appreciate their local
paper as a thing of value except to
the owner of the paper, and that
is where their vision needs doctoring. The newspaper travels, and
is the town's only representative
that is always working at the job.
All forms of advertising have
been used unsuccessfully by utility companies, but the one that has
proved indispensible is the newspaper. First of all it has a circulation, A single newspaper will
often cover from 60 to 80 per
cent of the homes in its territory.
Advertising space in that paper
will give much greater returns per
dollar invested than will any other
form of advertising on which postage spent.
' Secondly, people are accustomed
to reading the newspaper. It is
not difficult to get their attention
as in the case of the circular letter, the booklet and other forms of
direct by mail advertising.
Third, and best oj all, it is
timely. The advertiser is able to
appeal to his audience by frequent
By all means use the different forms of advertising programme,
the principal items of which should
be the weekly but use them to
round out your advertising newspaper. But the newspaper is the
one that is indispensible.
An individual has noted a saying of a reliable money-maker on
Wall street that "If a man can

he will never quit. It will become a habit he cannot break."
And then wisely remarked "But

Big Tonnage 0(  Ore
And Concentrates Sent
Out For Treatment
Ore and concentrate shipments
from British Columbia mines to
the smelter at Tacoma, and Selby
are running about. 40,000 tons a
inonth, not including the exports
from Mayo, by way of the Yukon
River and Alaska.
Ore barging has become an important industry in British Columbia and many old sailing vessels
have been converted into ore and
concentrate carriers.
This year from the vicinity of
Stewart, B.C. approximately 12,-
000 tons of ore per month are moving south for treatment in . the
American smelter, while Granby,
also another northern property, is
finding it cheaper to treat ore at
Tacoma than its own plant, and
is sending about 12,000 tons per
month to Tacoma.
Nearly 9,000 tons a month are
moving from Britannia in copper
concentrate to Tacoma.
These ligures do not account for
the zinc concentrates that move
from New Westminster to Antwerp
every inonth for the Consolidated
Mining and Smelting Company of
Canada. Ltd., which amount to
about 15,000 tons per month.
Roughly estimated it is expected
that the mining interests of British
Columbia will by December 31)
have shipped about 800,000 tons of
ore and concentrates to various
foreign smelters for this year.

The official notice posted by the

chequered career as a mining town.
The mines are probably the

quoted figures to show that since
his government came into power
industrial establishments had increased by 235 per cent., the number of industrial employees had increased 255 per cent.
In 1916, he continued there was
an industrial payroll in the province of $14,567,000, while last
year's payroll totalled $105,800,-

The very first aerial stowaway
ever known was discovered recently
aboard a plane in the Laurentide
Air Service, Limited, operating on
its Rouyn gold fields service in association with the Canadian Pacific
Railway. The serious effect of the
extra weight on the flying powers
of the machine was so noticeable
ithat it led to the man's discovery.

The Devil's Potholes
National Park, is one of the
■ natural wonders of the entire
' Rocky Mountain region. A vast
cleft in the solid rock, reaching a
depth of some 200 feet, and so narrow in places that one may step
across it easily, draws from the
tourist expressions of awe and
wonder at the power ot accumulated force3 of water
Tumbling headlong down the
narrow gorge goes the Maligne
River, mysterious as to its source
and for part of its length a subterranean stream, on its way to
join the quieter waters of the
Athabasca far below. At times on
its passage through the narrow
gorge, it tumbles more than one
hundred feet in a sheer drop, its
eddies being churned to foam as
the waters beat a tattoo   against
Entrance to Cave, Maligne Canyon
the rocky sides of the canyon on
their downward leap.
Prom the footbridges which span
the narrow gash in the solid rock,
tourists watch entranced the effect of the waters on the rocky
sides. Here and there, seemingly
tired of the effort to stand upright
through the centuries, the sides of
the gorge appear to have leaned
toward one another, until an intervening rock cast itself into the narrow space and held the walls apart.
Trunks of trees and jutting rocks
form footbridges across the chasm
a hundred feet below the tourists'
feet, as they stand admiring the
glint of the noon-day sun upon the
falling water.
Maligne Canyon is a meeca for
visitors to Jasper Park Lodge, the
snlendid log-cabin hostelry of the
Canadian National Railways, and
rightly so. for there are few na
tural rock formations to equal in
interest those found in the canyon
The Devil's Potholes, curious indentations in the solid rock over
which the Maligne River flowed before the Canyon was worn to its
present depth, are holes worn deep
in the surface rock by the action
of swirling flood waters, when a
largo stone has been whirled round
and round in an untiring circle
until the stone itself was worn
small and round, and deep circular
holes have been ground into the
surface of the rock, remaining as
mute testimony to the power of
rust ing waters.
Maligne Canyon, while one of the
most wonderful formations to be
found in the Rocky Mountains, is
but one of the many natural attractions of Jasper National Park
In addition there are the snowcapped peaks on every side; the
glaciers of Mount Edith Cavell and
The Canyon in Winter
the mountains surrounding Maligne Lake, the Hoodoos of the
Cavell motor highway and hundreds of others. Wild animal life
is abundant, and the calm peace of
the out-of-doors is assured to the
tired holiday-seeker.
And in addition to the natural
beauties of the Park, a commodious
log cabin bungalow hotel; with excellent cuisine and all the comforts
of the modern city hotel, provides
a starting point from which parties
may radiate by motor or pack-
horse or afoot to travel by motor
road or pack trail into the very
heart of the wilderness. It was
the ddition of the comforts and
conveniences of Jasper Park Lodge
to the beauties of Jasper National
Park which caused one noted
American traveller to exclaim: "At
last. I have found the place, where
God and man go fifty-fifty to
produce perfection."

High Grade Ore At
Dunwell Mine
Portland Canal Newi
At a distance of 120 feet from
the tunnel on No 4 level of the
Dunwell, the quality of tlie ore has
improved greatly beyond its quality
where first encountered. Native
silver and argentite are present in
appreciable quantities. Comparing the present ore with that
found in a corresponding position
on No 3 level, proves that a great
improvement has taken place with
the extra 350 feet of depth gained.
A narrow felsitic dyke that persists throughout the ore shoot in
both No 3 and No 2 levels, as far
as they have been opened up, and
has apparently had an important
bearing on the ore deposition, is
present in No 4. On one side of
this dyke,, yesterday afternoon,
was one foot of high grade ore,
while on the other side of the dyke,
and occupying the balance of the
drift's I'aee is a good grade of milling ore.
It must be borne in mind that
in drifting for a shoot the high-
grade comes in gradually, and not
encountered suddenly like the wall
of vein in a crosscut tunnel.
Conditions at the mine are - not
only satisfactory, but extremely
gratifying to the management.
