The Elk's of Anyox entertained
300 ohildren and gave them the

was carried out, the kiddies running races and with the Anyox
brass hand and the Elk's jazz
band performing, there was not a
dull minute from start to finish.
At 1.30 p.m. the parade started
from the Elk's Hall, for the Ball
grounds and it surely was a pretty
sight to ^ee the children all gaily
dressed wearing paper hats of
various colors, each child carrying
a Union Jack and a horn, being
led by the Elk's Jazz Band dressed
in clowns costumes.
On. arriving at the grounds,
tickets were given, which entitled
the holder to ice cream cones, nuts,
biscuits and pop corn, to which
they did justice.
The Jazz Band race was one
feature much enjoyed by the
kiddies, the olowns ruUhihg and
playing their various instruments,
Sam Downs as drummer being in
the lead with speed and noise.

Limerick on Flag won by J. Gillis
The Committee who had charge
ot this affair deserve great credit
for the ma.nner in which the various events were carried out. The
kiddies of Anyox are high in their
praise of their Big "Brother Bills"
of Anyox, the Refreshment Committee being the best people on
earth as far as they were concerned
The Brass Band kept everyone
in a good humor.
Arid so did Mike Cranley's
whiskers when they caught on fire.
Where were Bros. Martin and
Blaney.
A "Brother Bill" is the pure pill;
so the kids say.
All the 'mittee men done their
part and done it with a willing
heart.
All the kids had the belly aohe
too, which was'nt for want of something to chew.
The Hebrew merchant was not
Hebrew, so the wise kids said as
they watched him dish out the
free stuff.
Jack Miller looked charming in
his suit of white and purple.
Jack Sherman handled the
sports programme.
And everyone else handled one
too. ,
Bert Kergin fell down in the
clowns race, but you can't keep him
down very- long, Rises to top
like good Casoade beer.
The Bev. J. B. Gibson gave a
very nice address on the Flag.
Esperanza Mine
Has Been Sold
New Company Has
Commenced Work
Final arrangements were concluded this week, whereby the
Esperanza mine was sold by E.
Elge and associates to a syndicate
composed of Anyox men. The
price paid for the property "was
$35,000. A cash payment of $10,
000 was made and the balance to
be made in two yearly payments.
The late owners share of the ore
mined by them and lying at the
mine is 25 per cent.
The Esperanza mine has had a
romantic history.' It was staked
in 1903 by the" lat&""Frank Boundy.
Capt. John Irving and associates
acquired an option to purchase. the
property, in 1912, A cash payment of $15,000. was made and
about $10,000 worth of work done
on the property.
It was sold at a Sheriffs sale in
Prince Bupert a short time later,
to Pedro and Baldereno Salinas,
for $200, they hiving a claim- of
$275 against the property, for
wages due. They extracted $26,
000 worth of ore, and Pedro, after
the death of his brother, sold the
property to E. Elge and associates
for the sum of $15,000 cashi
About $10,000 worth of ore was
shipped by them last winter, and a
good tonnage of ore is at the mine
awaiting shipment by the new
owners.
The Anyox syndicate has already
commenced work on the "'property,
with Mr. J. Peacock in charge of
operations. ' Mr. Peacock is well
known in Alice Arm, where he
owns several mining claims, and
also at Anyox, where he held the
position of shift boss at the Hidden
Creek mine. It is the intention of
the new company to employ about
ten men and mining and development work will be proceeded with
all possible speed. Ore shipments
will probably be made next month.
Rich Strike of High
Grade Ore on Alice
A rioh strike of high grade ore
was made by Mr. Geo. Matheson,
kst week, oh the A^iee Group,
while doing assessment work.
The strike was made in an entirely
new location and was found while
surface stripping was- being done.
The ledge is 18 inches wide and the
ore is high grade ruby silver and
silver sulphides. Specimens of the
ore taken from the surface were
brought down last week and they
are extremely high grade. Assays
are being taken,, the results of
which are not yet obtainable.
The Alice joins the Esperanza
mine on the north-west, and the
new strike is within easy shipping
distance of the Dolly Varden railway.
The property is owned by a
number of Anyox men and it is
expected that work will be commenced at an early date of taking
the ore out\ and ascertaining the,
size of the ore body. No development work is necessary as ore can
be mined as soon as operations
commence. If operations are commenced on the Alice property,
Alice Arm will have two mines
within two miles of the^town,
shipping high grade silver ore.
Geological Survey Party
Finishes Work
The Dominion Geological Survey
party under the direction of Dr. G.
Hanson, have finished their work
in the Alice Arm district for this
year. The ground covered by the
party this year, includes part of
the upper Kitsault valley, Esperanza mine, MoGrath mountain, and
Illiance Biver valley.
Dr. Hanson left for Terrace last
Saturday, in, company with j£r-
Maxwell, going overland, via
Aiyansh. Mr. Goronson and Mr.
Biley left on Monday, going by
way of Prince Rupert arid the G.
T. P. Railway. Dr. Hanson will
make a geological survey of the
country between Terrace and the
Naas valley.
Meeting of Alice Arm
Citizens' Association
The regular monthly meeting of
the Alice Arm Citizens' Association
was held in the offices of the Alice
Arm Freighting Co., on Saturday,
July 29th.
A considerable number of members were present, and Vice-President Al. Falconer -presided over
the meeting.'
The minutes of the last meeting
were read and approved.
The question of shipping an ore
exhibit from Alice Arm to the
British Columbia House, London,
England, for exhibition purposes,
as requested by F. C. Wade, agent-
general, came up for discussion,
and it was deoided that the secretary be instructed to write to the
Chamber of Mines and also the
Minister of Mines, Victoria, for full
information in regard to shipping
the samples.
It was deoided by the meeting
that a letter be written to Dr. W.
H. Sutherland, minister of public
works, calling his attention to the
faot that an engineer had not yet
been sent to survey a route for the
Alice Arm Naas Valley trail.
After some discussion, it was
decided by the meeting that the
secretary be instructed to write to
the Minister of Lands in regard to
the increasing area of first-class
timber that is being killed each
year in this district by the smoke
from the Granby Co's smelter, at
Anyox, with a view of ascertaining
if something can not be done to
save the timber for commercial
purposes before it is all killed and
rotten. It was the opinion of the
meeting that if the timber is left
standing for a few more years,
that its commercial, value would be
gone, and would be of no use to
anyone, and that one of the greatest assests of the district would be
lost forever.    .

K. MOSS. Editor and Publisher
We wish to draw the attention
of our readers to the (act that the
news columns of this paper is open
to every organization or individual
in the district to use at any time,
providing news is not disguised as
advertising. We favor no special
organization, and our policy for the
future is as it has been in the past,
namely, to print all the news it is
possible to acquire for the welfare
of the community. We are forced
sometimes, when there is an extraordinary large amount of news to
have to cut down on some of the
copy, but we do our best to satisfy
everyone as much as possible.
The Herald can not be classed as
a large newspaper, but that is due
to the unusual circumstances under
wfiich it is published and can not
be helped. The size of any
country newspaper depends entirely upon the amount of local
advertising it can obtain, and as the
district grows, and the volume of
advertising gets larger the paper
naturally increases in size. The
only thing that will make this
paper larger, is more people and
more business in the district, which
means more advertising, and until
that time comes, our readers must
be content with the Herald at its
present size. Any news item any
of our readers care to send us, will
always be greatly appreciated. If
you want to see some event mentioned, send it along, or see that it
is sent and we guarantee you will
not be disappointed.
A man was convicted this week
at Terrace, for refusing to fight
forest fire in contravention of the
Forest Act. He was fined ten
dollars or ten days. He ohose imprisonment.
Boost for the Anyox
Candidate for Prince
Rupert Fair
A large number of tickets for
Miss Rosie Moffatt, the Anyox
popularity candidate for the
Prince Rupert Fair, have already
been sold, but there are still a lot
of persons who have not yet taken
tickets. Some say they do not
intend to go to the Fair, but that
is of small consequence, because
there are several chances on a
drawing for a handsome gramophone with every ticket, so that
when you buy a ticket you are
giving Miss Moffatt a number of
votes and you have the pleasure of
anticipation which is the element
of all joy in life.
You will also be assisting to
make the Fair a. financial success,
which in itself will be a great
advertisement for northern B. C.
There will be an extensive mineral
exhibit at the Fair, and that will
be beneficial to the district, and a
great many residents of Anyox are
owners of mining properties. The
publicity that the Fair will give
the district will be a benefit to
Anyox citizens. You will also
have the satisfaction of enhancing
the popularity of a most popular
young lady.
The Prince Rupert Daily News
says: "In view of the broken condition of the local vote, and the
possibility of Anyox plumping
solid for their own candidate, the
northern candidate will have a
good opportunity of winning one
of the best prizes." -
Boost for the local candidate
and the first prize will come to
Anyox.
The smoke of burning forests is
a signal and a warning to all. It
should teach that an excess of
caution, a most meticulous care, is
only wise. Vacationists of all
varieties, who seek the ancient,
friendly shelter of the forest, should
look to their camp fires and their
burned matches—not because the
law requires that they do so. but
because common sense and self-
interest require caution of them,
None would, willingly be a source
of destruction so calamitous and
irremediable as a forest fire.

The. Wolf Cubs returned from

kindly contributed "to the welfare
of the camp. The Cubs also wish

Big Forest Fires in Interior
Big forest fires are burning
fiercely throughout the central part
of northern B.C. and only a deluge
of rain can keep them from spread

Bulkley valley has been practically
wiped out. A big lire in the Kit-
wancool valley is steadily eating
up large areas of first-class spruce
and cedar. Twelve to fifteen miles'

Hon. Wm. Sloan Returned
from Yukon 25 Years Ago
Twenty-five years ago last Sunday, William Sloan, now Minister
of Mines for British Columbia, and
his companions arrived in Seattle,
on the steamer, Portland, not only
with loads of nuggets and gold
dust, but with news that thrilled
men all over the world and helped
to start the wonderful Klondyke
gold rush.
Seattle papers of the day of the
arrival of the gold pioneers from
the north tell how Mr. Sloan walked up the wharf and along what
then was Yesler Ways carrying a
satchel in whioh there was the
$100,000 of gold which he had
found and ..gathered in the north.
Clarence Berry came off the boat
with $135,000; F. G. H. Bowker,
$90,000; Wm. Stanley, $112,000;
aud tne rest of the 68 passengers
with enough gold in their sacks to
give them the status of millionaires.

"Can you recommend a lotion to

summer visitor to an Alice Arm
storekeeper.
"Yes Madam," replied, the obliging storekeeper,-as he reached for a
packet of Epsom salts. "Mix a
packet of these salts in a little I
water and wash the hands and
face thoroughly."
"But why Epsom salts/' enquir-
the lady.
"Why Madam," replied the storekeeper,- "after they have taken the

Fred Miller, who is operating a
logging camp at Way Point has
sent two booms of logs to the
Georgetown mills, comprising
about 400,000 feet.    Owing to lack
of water the donkey engine can
not be used for hauling logs, but
bucking and falling is being carried
on.
Six horses were shipped -to
Terrace on Monday's boat, in
charge of Steve Morrison. These
horses will be used by the geological survey party which recently
left Alice Arm. As there is no

them 100 miles by water to Prince
