Teams in Action
Close and Exciting Games
Played
Well! well! well!     They   say
■lightning never strikes twice in the
]same place, but this does not apply
> the Anyox Elk's ball team, for
■the boys struok twice in the same
Iplace last week.   After getting a
■3 to 1 decision over the Smelter
Steam .they wound up the sixth day
Ishalt  thou labor period by vanquishing the Mine team by a score
I of 3 to 2.   It was some game at
I that, and by the same token we're
I going to have all kinds of good
J ball  this  summer  if  the games
[already played are any criterion.
| The talent is on the job and with a
little warmer weather—well, we'll
see.   Amateur league ball in the
J big towns has'nt anything on this
Kittle old northern triangle.  On the
I play last week, the Elks look just
j a little bit the best aggregation on
1 the local lot.   Between the batter-
I ies there is not much choice, so far.
jBoth   Draudson   and   Ferguson
j pitched   heady  ball,    and   were
1 tight when tightening was necess-
lary.   Robertson for the Elks and
I Corckle for the Mine received well.
For the outfielders there is not
much difference, but the Elks infield showed a little more class than
! either of the Community League
organizations.   There is not much
chance, however, for either of the
teams to run away with a big lead,
and the results of the next pair of
games,   when  the League teams
and the Elks oppose one another,
1 the  decision  may   be   reversed.
Waterman gave every satisfaction
in the role of umpire.   There was a
good attendance, and the weather
man was kind.
The line-up of the teams were:
Elks Mine
Draudson P. Ferguson
Robertson C. Corckle
Thorley 1st. b. Brentzen
Downs 2nd. b. Carlson
Greenwell' 3rd. b. Mealy
Menzies x   L. F. McGammon

The air was shattered to bits on
the night of the 22nd, but when it
will be moulded again to the
heart's desire of the Smelter supporters 'Would involve some
guessing. It was a grand old bat
fest for a couple of frames when
the Miners and Gas-gobblers met
on common ground in the vale
between the hills and hammered
eaoh other's offerings to all points
of the compass, and then some.
Eight safe hits for eaoh team is
tale of glory that unfolded before
the seven innings had run their
course, and honors were almost

Road and Trail
Work at Alice Arm
Dolly Varden Railway May
Be Repaired
Work on the wing dam at Alice
Arm ceased last week owing to the
money appropriated being exhausted. The dam has been extended
for iome distance;' and will considerably help to keep the water from
cutting 'out the soft bank and
getting behind the dam.
Work on the trail to the Esperanza mine has been oompleted, and
Mr. Elge, of the Esperanza will
finish the upper part of the trail,
which will then be in shape to
haul ore from the mine both summer and winter. The government
is extending the trail from the
Esperanza farther up the hill to
other properties.
Through the^utting out of fallen
trees along the railway, it is now
possible to get a hand car up the
track about five miles.
■~ Mr. A. L. Carruthers, district
engineer of public works made a
46»jfe of inspection, of the Dolly
Varden Railway, this week, with
a view of ascertaining the cost of
putting the road in repair to
enable hand cars to be operated
this summer. •
The use of the railway is of vital
importance to the district as there
are no other' means of getting
supplies to the upper Kitsault
country, and it is hoped that the
government will do this necessary
work so that prospectors and
small operators will not be handicapped in getting in supplies for
development work.
nosing the flat dwellers out by one
run and an innings to spare. The
fourth inning was fatal to the
Miners, when the Smelters crowded in four runs and gave them a
lead of four runs ovor their opponents. They gained another one in
the sixth, and then in the very
height of thv-.f pride the fatal sixth
of. the Miners came upon them, and
when the noise of the exultant
rooters from the hill tops had
about started the echoes in the
vicinity of the new dam, four runs
had been tallied against them and
night came heavy with the color
of mourning.
Loseke and Stewart comprised
the battery for the Smelters and
Ferguson and Corckle for the
Mine. Ferguson had eight strike
puts to his credit and Loseke seven..
Errors were evenly divided, each
having six blaok marks against it.

Big Empire Day
Celebration at
Alice Arm
Races, Ball Game and Dance
Large Number of Visitors
Empire Day was celebrated, at
Alioe Arm in good old-fashioned
style, and perfect weather prevailed
throughout the day. Races and a
baseball game were held in the
afternoon and hi the evening a
dance was held at the Alice Arm
Hotel.
A large number of Anyox people
came over to spend the day, midst
the greenery and flowers, and more
would undoubtedly have availed
themselves of the opportunity were
it not for the heavy shower of rain
occurring in the early hours of the
morning. The Awake, which left
Anyox at 9 a.m. brought over a
number of visitors, and numerous
small boats continued to arrive
throughout the day. Several parties lunched at Silver City and
came across the bay during the
.afternoon. _ *   *,*.
The children's races commenced
at 2 p.m. on the ball grounds, and
afforded much amusement' to the
large number of spectators. Some
hot contests were witnessed and
great was the disappointment of
some of the small tots who stuuv
bled over each other in their
eagerness to reaoh the winning
Rost first. None were disappointed
however, as all received a prize,
and as all prizes were in cash, each
one had something to spend in
honor of the memory of that illustrious sovereign, Queen Victoria,
whose birthday they were celebrating.
Following are the prize winners:
Boy's Race: Henry Carney, 1st;
Arthur Cameron, 2nd.
Oirls's Race: Helen Nubioh, 1st;
Zorka Sutilovioh, 2nd; Margaret
Wilson, 3rd.

Meeting of Anyox
Baseball Executive
At a meeting of the Anyox Baseball League Executive, held on
Wednesday evening, May 24th, it
was decided to employ two umpires
for the balance of the baseball
season. At this meeting, secretary
J. E. Gill handed in his resignation
on account of an appointment he
had received with the Geological
Survey, on Vancouver Island.
His resignation was accepted with
regret, and while the boys felt that
he was justified in taking advantage of the opportunity they
would prefer having him continue
as secretary of the Anyox Baseball
League for the season of 19221
Harry Thorley was nominated
and elected to succeed Mr. Gill.
Sack Race, Small Boys: Jimmy
Ness, 1st; Billy Wilson, 2nd; Jack
Morrison, 3rd.
3-legged Race, Girls:   Christina
Nucich  and Alice Hogburg, 1st;
Alice Kergin and Violet Fosburg,
2nd; Kathleen Bruggy and Kirk
Falconer, 3rd.
3-legged Race, Boys: Teddy Kergin and Lome Falconer, 1st;
Arthur Cameron & Henry Carney,
2nd; Kirk Falconer and Gordon
Anderson, 3rd.
After the races, which took some
considerable time—owing to the
large number of children participating—a baseball game was staged
by two all-star local teams, assisted
by some of the star players from
among the Anyox visitors. This
was the first game played at Alice
Arm this year, and the boys showed that they had not lost anything
in either batting or fielding, since
they used to swat the pill tq^deep
water last year.
George Bruggy and Al. Falconer
were captains of the teams, and
honors were evenly divided until
the fatal fourth inuings, when Al's
Colts broke loose. All efforts to
hold them were useless, they continued to gallop around the .bases
until it looked more like a circus
than a baseball game. Both teams
were evidently played out after
this wonderful exhibition for no
runs were scored and the Colts
cantered off the ground easy
winners.
D. S. Cameron as referee, gave
every satisfaction.
Following are the the teams:
Bruggy's Bulldogs: Geo. Bruggy,
M. D. Ross, T. W. Falconer, B. W.
Barrett, O. Flint, G. Anderson, A.
D. Yorke, J. Esplin, T. Black.
Falconer's Colts: A. Falconer,
J. Gray, E. R. Oatman,' J. Morrison, J. Anderson, J. Camerdn,' F.
Miller, G. Young, R. F. McGinnis.
In order to round off the day, a
dance was held at the Alice Arm
Hotel in the evening, when a large
number of people were present,
and a very enjoyable time was
spent. Geo. Bruggy acted as M.
C. in his usual efficient manner.
Refreshments were provided by the
ladies, and the music was supplied
by Mrs. T. W. Falconer, E. R.
Oatman, and J. Fiva.
Dolly Varden Negotiations are Still Proceeding
No word has yet been reoeived
at Alice Arm regarding the
progress of negotiations between
Mr. Geo. Wingfield, of Cripple
Creek, Colorado—who holds a
mortgage of $200,000 against the
Dolly Varden and Wolf properties
—and the Taylor Mining Co. It
is understood, however, from a
reliable source that it will be
known about the middle of next
month whether the present negotiations can be completed to the
satisfaction of Mr. Wingfield, or
whether they will. be prolonged
over an indefinite period. It is
understood that should an arrangement be arrived at satisfactory to
Mr. Wingfield that development
work will be started as quickly as

Scotland and was 47 years of age.
He leaves a mother and two sisters
at Burlington, Ontario. He was a
member of the A. F. & A. M. *?■

ALICE   ARM   AND   ANYOX   HERALD   Alice Abm,   Saturday, May 27, 1922
Anyox Baseball
How the Game Looks to
ths Fans
They're off! For the next several months the trail of the
sulphur blasted pine will harken
unto other noises than the rumble
of the jitney over the planking and
the roar of the blast in the Glory
Hole far up Hidden Creek.
The baseball season of 1922
opened on Monday evening, May
15, and the big noise was inaugurated in a manner befitting the
coming together of forces long
held under restraint by the cruel
exigencies of a section of the
world lacking perennial baseball
weather. - Listen at 'em ripping
the "Umps" up the back. "Yah!
Yah! Call that a strike? Sic the
umpire! He's got a glass eye! Lead
him away on a string and stand
him in a corner with an organ and
a monk! He's blind!" Of such is,
the kingdom of baseball.
It is something apart from all
other games. You've felt it. The
fans are gathering, the pitchers are
warming up and the teams are
having their preliminary five minute work-out. You are anxious to
see them get away. The umpire
sends forth the clarion call, "Play
Ball." Instantly all is tension, the
batters step up to the plate and
the bases fill up. A hit will mean
things. The crisis in a nation's
affairs was never more momentous than what is about to take
place before you. The pitcher
tightens up, and in those couple of
breath catching moments, a play is
pulled off so quickly it makes you
wonder for a second just what
happened, then you either yell
lustily with one particular bunch
of exultant fans, or swear softly
with the long-faced one's who have
been betrayed by their friends,
but that feeling is only momentary,
for you all know all of a sudden
that you are going to have your
ohance, that your moment of exultation is coming in the last of
the ninth, when the game is tied
and the pinch hitter of your favorite team will step proudly up to the
plate and line the pill to regions
remote and lonely, and the thing
will be over, all but the shouting.

Anyox Football
Anyox's season of sport is now,
in full swing, the football season
opening on Friday night, May 19,
when the Elks met the smelter
crew and managed to nose them
out by a score of three goals to
two. The ground was very heavy
and made the going slow, but the
match was very evenly contested,
the game belonging to anyone
right up to the time the whistle
signalled the finish of the encounter. To start the schedule appropriately, Miss Leitch of the
Schools' Staff consented to start
the game by kicking the ball from
the center.
This is how they lined up:
Elks,: goal, Gray; baoks, W. Robertson and Roberts, halfbacks, H.
Ballion, Greenwell, Crerar; forwards, E. N. Ballion, Dodd, Wilson,
W. Robertson, S. Armstrong.
Smelter: goal, Farrell; backs,
MoKenzie and Parker; half backs,
White, Sherman and Barton: forwards, Brown, Hay, Stewart,
Mahoney, Fitzpatriok.
Referee: Joe Hart.
In the second game of the 1922
Football Schedule, the Elks again
came out on top, the score being 2
goals to 1. The Mine played one
man short and should have won, as
the ball was in Elk territory the
greater part of the game. Time
and time again Bill Robertson
cleared what were dangerous shots,
and did several good soccer players
work all by himself. When Bill
takes the boat for the outside at
the end ijL June, there's going to
be an all-round sportsman missing

The Mine showed up well in this
game and with some practice at
team work will be as dangerous as
any aggregation in the League.
They were just as good looking on
the field Tuesday evening as the
team that managed to score the
odd goal. In this particular game,
luok was the biggest factor, and
the Elks had it in bunches. They
won the toss and started kioking
with a strong north wind, and
when half time, arrived and the
Mine were to have that advantage
the wind had passed altogether.

Jack and Tom Cloke, aged 12
and 14 years, while trolling for
salmon in Anyox harbor last Saturday, hooked something which to
them'seemed like a whale. They
played with it for over an hour,
but were unable to land it in their
rowboat. They pulled ashore and
landed it on the beach, and it
proved to be a halibut which
weighed 80 pounds.
