Anniversary of Opening
Alice Arm Hotel
Fourteen years ago on Thursday
the Alice Arm Hotel was opened
to the public by Mr. O. Evindsen.
It was a big event, and the people
'ofAlico Arm could not let this
year's anniversary pass unnoticed.
A surprise party was therefore
arranged, and at 8.30 p.m. almost
the entire population of tho town
paid an unexpected visit to the
famous hostelry.
Mr. and Mrs. Evindsen were
completely taken by surprise. The
visitors, however, took charge of
affairs and dancing and card playing were at once in full swing. It
was one of the most happy evenings spent for a long time. Everyone went with the intention of en-
joyihg themselves, and judging
by the smiling countenances and
vivacity displayed everyone carried
out their good intention.
From shortly after 8.30 until
2 a.m. the following morning the
Alice Arm orchestra gave the
dancers no rest. The dining room
floor was taxed to the limit until
the final strains of the Home Waltz
reminded everyone that bed time
had arrived, and the day's business
was only a few hours away.
A pleasant ceremony was performed during the dance, when a
circle was formed around Mr. and
Mrs. Evindsen and daughter Alma
and, "They are Jolly Good Fellows"
and "Auld Lang Syne" was heartily sung. Mr. H. Fowler in a few
words stated why the surprise
party had been given. Mr. Evindsen in reply stated that he hoped
the next fourteen years would still
find him conducting the Hotel.
Later, in reminiscencing over the
opening of the Hotel fourteen
years ago, Mr. Evindsen said that
350 people attended. In addition
to Alice Arm people, several boat
loads arrived from Anyox and a
launch also made a speoial trip
from Prince Rupert. So excellent
were the arrangements that the
whole 350 were provided with
lunch in forty minutes.
Mrs. Moore wishes to thank
most sincerely the doctors, matron
and nursing staff of the Anyox
hospital, the ladies of the I. O. D.
E. Collison of Kincolith Chapter,
and other ladies of Anyox also the
members of the Canadian Legion
in Anyox for their great kindness
and sympathy towards her in her
recent sad bereavement.
Dolly Varden Railway
Being Repaired
The Department of Public Works
commenced repair work on the
Dolly Varden railway on Thursday
with a crew of men. No heavy
repair work will be undertaken at
the present time. The track is
being cleared of trees and rock
slides, and several bridges will be
repaired. No extensive work will
be undertaken at the present lime.
Supplies will be transported to the
end of steel by gasoline speeders
md the gasoline locomotive of the
Britannia Mining & Smelting Co.,
who will continue development
at the Toric and other properties
as soon as the track is clear of snow
at the upper end.
Work was also commenced this
week on the completion of the trail
on the east side of the Kitsault
flats. Three bridges are being
built, which will connect the road
on the flats with the Silver City
and Illiance Valley trails. J.
Wheatly is in charge of operations.
Aroy.nd town the work of blasting
stumps, and clearing the streets
and lanes is being vigorously carried out, and every day witnesses
a change in the landscape. Residences are continually being moved
into their new positions, and a few
more weeks will probably see the
last house in its proper place.
Alice Arm Residence Is
Destroyed By Fire
A disastrous fire occurred at
Alice Ann on Tuesday, when the
residence of Mr. Oscar Flint was
completely destroyed, together with
almost all of his belongings. The
offices of the Kitsault Mining and
Development Co. were located in
the building, and all records were
also destroyed.
The fire was not noticed until it
had obtained a strong hold The
alarm was given at about 11.30
a.m. and although many were
quickly on the scene, smoke and
flames prevented anyone from
saving any contents. Mr. Flint
was successful in draging out a
trunk and two suits of clothes, before smoke and flames drove him
In a few minutes the entire
building was a seething mass of
flames, which were fanned by a
warm dry breeze, and within an
hour all that remained of an
attractive little residence was a
pile of ashes. No insurance was
carried on either the building or
Amount of Development
Work by Britannia
Co. Uncertain
Just what amount of development work will be undertaken by
the Britannia Mining & Smelting
Co. on the Toric, Wolf and Dolly
Varden properties is not at present
known. It is understood that as
soon as Dolly Varden railway track
is clear of snow that operations at
the Toric will be commenced.
It is the local opinion that due
to the depressed price of silver their
programme of development work
will not be as large as was anticipated last winter. The low price
of copper will probably have an
effect on reduced expenditures, the
Britannia Company being large
producers of copper at their Howe
Sound property.
Alice Arm Will Celebrate
May 24th.
Empire Day, Saturday May 24
promises to be a big day at Alice
Arm. Arrangements are being
made to entertain a large number
of Anyox visitors. A varied programme of sports will be carried
out during the afternoon, which
will he followed by a baseball game
between picked teams of Anyox
and Alice Arm. A dance will be
held during the evening at T. W.
Falconer's Hall. Anyox visitors
are assured that everything will
be done to give them an enjoyable
The Alioe Arm Athletic Club is
sponsoring the day's celebration.
Ice cream will be on sale during
the afternoon sports, and also at
the dance in the evening.
Alice Arm Athletic Club
Showing Enthusiasm
Alice Arm sport enthusiasts are
busily engaged in preparing for
summer sports. Two weeks ago
the big skating rink was demolished. This procedure was
necessary owing to the unsafe
condition of the roof. Many of the
spruce logs being in a decayed
condition. The square timbers,
however, were sound, and have
been used for the foundation of the
new tennis court.
The foundation of the new court
is now laid. It has been done by
the voluntary labor of a number of
tennis enthusiasts. A large amount
of work, however, remains to be
done, and it is hoped that everyone
who has a little time to spare will
lend a hand toward the good work.
The court is being built a short
distance south of the old skating
rink. It will be a board court
and will be constructed so that it
can be flooded during the winter
and converted into a skating rink.
First Black Bear of Season
Shot at Alice Arm
Tom Kennedy, the well known
game hunter, shot the first black
bear of the season this week, at
mile nine on the Dolly Varden
railway. The skin is a prime one.
The bears are commencing to come
out, several having been seen in the
vicinity. Mr. Kennedy followed
the tracks of a huge grizzly bear
for a whole day at East Creek, but
was not successful iu sighting him.
He believes it is the huge grizzly
that has been seen on McGrath
Mountain on several occasions, and
he is anxious to add it to his
Anyox Golf Club Hold
Tennis Tournament
The first Anyox Golf tournament
of the season was held on Sunday,
by both ladies and gentlemen. Two
ball foursomes were played. The
winners of the ladies tournament
were Mrs. Lawn and Mrs. J. L.
Stewart, with a score of 73. Mrs.
C. Cundill and Mrs. C. O. Fricker
were second with a score of 78.
Nine holes were played.
The winners of the men's tournament were S. Peters and L. H.
Wenerstrom who tied with C. O.
Fricker and A. W. Gigot. Each
had scores of 117, playing 18 holes.
In the playoff during the week, S.
Peters and L. H. W.enerstrom
emerged victorious.
Alex Rogers, J. W. Perry, N.

Anyox Baseball Players
Elect Officers For
Baseball was given its start last
Friday when 21 players and fans
assembled to elect officers. This
year the Association has honorary
officers who are: Honorary President, Mr. Charles Bocking; Honorary Vice-Presidents: Messrs. VV.
R. Lindsay and F. S. McNicholas.
The executive includes a representative from each team and the
following officers: President,
Walter Adams; Vice-President, H.
E. Doelle: Secretary, Fred Faulkner. The secretary will also act as
score-keeper. As umpire, the
meeting suggested Mr. Jack
Cody but left the executive power
to add to the number of officials.
If and when disputes arise they will
be referred to an Arbitration Board
comprising, A. Pynn, W. B. Maxwell, J. Munroe, E. G. Brown and
R. J. Manning. To date it seems
that three teams are sure of playing,
the Mine, the Elks and the Concentrator. Enthusiasts for an early
start yvere told that a good deal of
dry weather is necessary in order to
get the grounds into playing condition. It was left to the executive
to decide when to open the season.
Games will be scheduled probably
for Mondays and Fridays.

Workers Warned From Mining
Victoria, May 8th.—Collapse of
the price of copper, zinc and silver
will result in a cessation of many
mining operations throughout
British Columbia this summer,
causing unemployment among
metal mine workers. Those seeking work this summer are advised
to look elsewhere instead of the
usual mine jobs. Gold placer
mining is not effected, and is in a
healthy state. ALICE   ARM    AND   ANYOX   HERALD. , Saturday.   May   10,  1930
Almost Certain Election
Will Be Held This
Ottawa, April 3rd, The most
recent evidence of Government preparedness for an election conies
from Washington. It is ihe news
to the effect that in response to a
request from the King Government
all proposed treaty agreements now
lying in various stages are to be
rushed along to a point where signatures may be affixed,
Only a few yveeks ago Washington advices were to the effect that
the Senate Foreign Relations committee yvas designedly holding up
all Canadian agreements then
under yvay to compel acceptance by
Canada of a definite arrangement
for the St. Lawrence deepening
That attitude has been abandoned
and it is announced that the new
treaty covering smuggling of prohibited goods, for which negotiations were opened by Premier King
just three weeks earlier, yvas ready
for delivery to Ottawa. The treaty
covering conservation of Niagara
Falls, pigeonholed since last year is
being rushed along and the treaty
covering sockeye salmon fishing in
Puget Sound is being revived.
All these measures will be useful
talking points in an election campaign, the anti smuggling treaty
in particular, as it gives Canada
something in return for stopping
export liquor clearance to the
United States.
While it will take another two
yveeks to find a practical foundation
for prophecy as to an election date,
those who live on the fringe of politics are swinging to the viewpoint
that July and not late August, or
September, will yvitness the polling
of the vote. If the budget is to be
the issue it will be rather dead fuel
by fall and there are many who
believe that the election will take
place in July, or not until next
Indications favor this year.
Economic conditions are not of the
best, but there is no guarantee they
will not be worse before they are
better. Premier King and his
campaign manager, Senator Hyden,
laid their plans during the recess at
Bermuda. What are they, time
alone will disclose.
Last Spike On Hudson

Postponement of the ceremonies
attendant upon the opening of the

was completed into Churchill from
The Pas over a year ago and it yvas

number of unforseen difficulties
arose and the ceremony yvas put off

Prince Rupert   Makes
Bid For Taku Country
The Taku Transportation and
Trading Co. Ltd. has been incorporated at Prince Rupert with capitalization of $100,000 to conduct a
general freight and passenger business up the Taku River to the new
mining camps. As soon as navigation on the Taku opens, the company will place several' boats in
service on the river to carry passengers and freight from its mouth
to the mining fields across the Alaskan panhandle in Canadian territory. Up to June 6, the frieght
will be handled through Juneau but
after that date it will be sent direct
from Prince Rupert in bond and
transferred from coasting steamers
at the mouth of the Taku to boats
and scows of the neyv local company.
The directors of the neyv company, whose certificate of incorporation is now being awaited, are all
prominent business men. Captain
Fraser left for Juneau on the
Princess Alice last week to assume
his duties as local manager on the
Taku River for the company.
The company noyv has an extensive outfit all ready to leave for the
Taku as soon as word is received
of the break-up of the ice there.
The well known local boat Naas
River renamed Taku River, will be
one vessel of the fleet and, for
freight work, the concern has purchased the boat Tahltan yvhich yvas
originally built for the service of
the Hudson Bay Co. and on the

the past few years as a hospital
boat on the Skeena River. The

More Boys Planning to Make Buchanan's Alaska Tour
'—  iCilk
JBUOlAHAN <D/Ztr/£t? /f Qaci TtsAHt  a     a    a   a
"o Ceo.E. Buchanan ■"
f eorge E. Buchanan, sponsor and
^* backer of and rooter for the
movement of boys to Alaska, is
planning to take 50 or more to
the far north the coming summer.
Buchanan, who is president of the
Detroit Coal Exchange and five
coal companies and a bachelor, believes that a trip to Alaska, provided a boy partly earns his way,
will be a wonderful formative incident in his life. He has already
taken 300 boys to Alaska, and this
will be his seventh annual personally conducted tour. The boys,
ages 9 to 17, must earn one-third
of the cost of the trip ($125.00);
the parents advance a third and
Buchanan loans the boy one third,
which ib to be repaid later at the
toy's leisure. ^
Buchanan, who gets letters from
all over the United States and Canada addressed "Alaska, Buchanan,
Detroit," tells the boy who writes
to him direct from anywhere how
he can earn his third by selling
pencils, kitchen tongs, coal, steel
ash baskets, etc. Boys who qualify
go westward through Canadian
Rockies, seeing Banff and Lake
Louise, then north to Alaska on
the "Princess Louise." They see
the wonders of Alaska and return
by the "Princess" to Vancouver
and homeward through the United
States, thus viewing the finest
scenery in Canada, Alaska and the
States. Buchanan goes with them
on every trip and gives them his
personal care.
When asked what he did if they
cot sick, he declared that they did
not get sick, or if they had a bit
of indisposition, the wonderful
climate pepped them up and put
them back on their feet immediately. "One boy gained 19 lbs. during
the month's tour," said Buchanan,
and every boy has gone home a
better boy physically, mentally and
as a young business man. He has
seen Alaska's wonders and has
aarned part of the money to finance the trip, which covers about
8,000 miles and lasts a whole
month. One of my youngest boys,
who is 5 years old, has already
earned about $80, and if he gets
his third together on his own efforts, he will be in our party this
summer, even if he is only six
years old. Any boy, anywhere can
go, provided he gets his parents'
consent and earns his third." •
