Elks'Baseball Team are
Improving in Form
The Elks and Mine played a
postponed game on Saturday even
ing, in whioh Orr and Smith
hooked up in another pitching duel,
the former coining off first with a
two to one win. Two hits, one a
triple, were all made off Orr, while
the Mine were retired via the
strike-out route. Sensational
work around the keystone sack by
Harris, turned tbe Antlered Herd
back ou several occasions. This
player also stole home for the winning run of the game. Smith
pitched winning ball all the way,
Eight hits were made off his delivery, but several of them being of
the scratch variety and .should
never have been hits at all. Smith
made a strong hit to tie up the
count in the sixth, when he connected with one of Orr's fast ones, for
three liases, but he was out at home
plate on a fielder's choice. Umpires
Oleson and Mcintosh.
SUMMARY

In a regular league fixture on
Monday evening, the Elks finally
managed to stop the Miner's winning streak, winning by an eight
to five score, The Miners scored
first and were leading two nothing
in the third frame. In the fourth,
however, the boys from the hill
ascended, five hits and a Hock of
errors, sent six runs over the platter. The losers made a strong bid
in the fifth, when Smith weakened
and three runs were chased across.-
But the Bills were not to be denied
they added one in the fifth and
another in the sixth to put the
game on ice. The last marker
was the best of the game when
Down scored from second on
Brown's bunt. Umpires Oleson
and Mcintosh.

Alice Arm Man Disappears
No trace has. yet been found of Ed.
Cullion, who disappeared on Sunday
morning, and his fate remains a
mystery, A short time previous to
his disappearance he had been acting
strangely, and early on Sunday morning he was brought down from the
LaRose mine to be taken to the hospital. He escaped shortly after and
his hat was found on the approach of
the Kitsault river bridge. Search was
at once instituted, supplemented later
by Constable W. Smith of Anyox. All
footprints on trails were followed,
cabins in the district searched, the
river dragged, and every thing possible
done, but to no avail. Hid. has been
a resident of Alice Arm for three years
and was employed as teamster by
Miles Donald.
The big log carrying barge
Drumrock, towed by the tug Lome
arrived at Alice Arm from Powell
River on Saturday evening, and is
loading logs from the booms of
the Abbotsford Logging Co. and
J. Wheatley.
Crowds Attend Dance Given
by Mine Ball Team
Just that particular attraction,
arousing more than usual interest
than is attached to an ordinary dance
resulted in crowds assembling on the
lull Monday evening, when the Mine
Ball Team were hosts to a dance with
music from the Melodians' orchestra.
Considering the boys registered
their first loss of the season just prior
to the "hop'' but nothing daunted, they
were all there with "bells on" to wet
come their guests; prominent among
them being the ever popularLesLiliie,
and his stalwart sidekickers, Stan
Harris, Bobby Orr, andBilly Wendell.
A novelty of the affair was a series
of moonlight dances, an upen air
effect being obtained by subdued-lights,
and a touch ofthe cabaret was introduced when, following the supper
intermission. Bud Sheen—Tho Mine
Club idol—obliged with a trio of songs.
Advance work was ably undertaken
by Dick Brown, the Club's caterer de
luxe, who prepared coffee, the Misses
Gracie Stevens and Patricia Dermody,
of the ticket sales force, and Henry
McDonald of the publicity department. Completing the event, were
the Melodians, the boys who have
obtained the reputation of supplying
a constantly improving and up-to-date
programme of dance music. A strong
contingent of Beach visitors were
present mingling with their friends at
the Mine.
Alice ArmLogging Commence
The Abbotsforrd Logging Co.
commenced operations on their
timber holdings near Silver City.
Fourteen men, who have a contract

A danoe in aid of the camp fund
of Anyox Boy Scouts was held in
the Gymnasium on Wednesday
June 23rd. the revenue derived
from this affair will be placed at
the disposal of the Anyox Boy
Scouts who have been trying to
accumulate the sum of $400 by their
enterprising endeavours during the
last few months in putting on various kinds of entertainment, to help
defray their expenses to Roberts
Creek camp.
This dance was well attended
and great credit is due to those who
played in the orchestra which consisted of Dr. Davies, S. Armstrong
and Ed. Waterman for tho music
they provided, giving their services
free for this event.
The Scoutmaster, W. Murdoch
wishes to thank Mrs. J. Munroe
for the loan of her piano and all the

fire from Sunday until Tuesday, when
it was brought under control.
Homeguard Discoveries
Make it Attractive
Property
Probably the most unique and
interesting property in the Alice
Arm district is the Homeguard,
owned by Wm. McFarlane and
Geo. Bruggy. This property was
a puzzle to the mining engineers
who examined it in the early stage
of development. Tlie property contained some large surface showings,
but further development proved
the showings to be composed of
massive boulders, which had broken
away from the ledge.
Geo. Clothier, in his annual
report to the Minister of Mines in
1922, reports on the property as
follows:
"The first showing is at an elevation
of 1,000 feet, or about 350 feet above
the railway on the opposite side of.the
river. Here an open cut along the
side-hill crosses a vein 20 feet wide,
filled with a breccia of greenstone
country-rock cemented with calcite.
The calcite is heavily mineralized with
pyrite and chalcopyrite. Across 12
feetfl inches of the face of the exposure
assayed as follows: 4 feet 6 inches in
width, $2.40 in gold and 6 ozs. in silver
to the ton, and 8.9 per cent copper; 8
feet in widtli, 00 cents in gold and 2.4
oz. in silver to the ton, and 3.5 per
cent copper. I judge the 12feet Cinches
of ore will concentrate from 5 to 8 into
one. Other similar showings are
found up the hill."
The property was bonded by the
Granby Consolidated Mining, Smelting and Power Company Limited, aud

More Publicity for Alice
Arm is Aim of Citizens
A meeting of the Alice Arm
branch of the B. C. Chamber of
Mines was held at the Coliseum,
on Monday evening. The meeting
was well attended. Numerous
matters were discussed, and the
meeting was one of the most interesting yet held. T. W. Falconer,
Vice-President presided.
The minutes of the last meeting
were adopted as read.
It was decided to accept the
small bank account of the defunct
Citizens' Association.
The advisability of sending an
ore display to the Vancouver Exhibition, of the district, was discussed at length. It was finally
decided that as the time was limited
to mail a circular letter to each
mining property owner in the
district requesting him to send in a
sample of his ore not later than
July 15th.
An interesting address was given
by II. Smith, who stressed the need
of greater publicity for this rich
mineral district. He pointed out
that we had nothing to be afraid
of in making known our wonderful
resources, and hoped that some
action would be taken along these
lines.
R. Armour, who was the next
speaker, was entirely iu sympathy with Mr. Smith's views, He
advocated the publication of a booklet, giving a general description of
the district.
Other speakers on the matter
were: O. Gray, H, Fowler. H. F.
Kergin,
A committee was appointed by
the chairman to investigate the
feasibility of publishing the booklet
It consists of R. Armour, E. Moss,
H. Smith, H. F. Kergin, J. Fiva,
H. Fowler.
The committee will gather all
available data and will report at a
special meeting to be held on Monday July 5th, !5K»«^SS?'*5?n'^^T^^W's™53Se?5J3SBSKm5OT

Homeguard Discoveries

diamond-drilling clone, ft was found
that in each case the showing consisted of isolated boulders, or musses of
the vein broken away and embedded in
the slide-rock A tunnel was then
started by the owners,-it an elevation
of 1,275 feet and has been driven over
150 feet. The first 20 feet went
through a boulder of ore: the next 10(1
feet went through coarse slide-rock of
country-rock, encountering no more
boulders of ore; the balance of the
tunnel is in solid andesitic country-
rock, but the vein has not been found'
The portions of the vein found in the
slide certainly indicate a strong vein
carrying good commercial values and
well worth a considerable expenditure
to locate."
The ledge from which these huge
boulders came has been discovered
since the above, was written, and
the size of the ledge and values substantiates Mr. Clothier's opinion.
This discovery alone is enough to
place the Homeguard among the
most attractive in the district, but
recent prospecting has revealed an
additional ledge.
This ledge is lower down the hill
near the Kitsault river, which it
parallels, The ore is composed of
silver, zinc, lead, and gold. It is
over 12 feet wide and has been
traced on the surface for a distance
of 600 feet. The values average
about $20.00 per ton.
A further vein 4 feet wide has
also been discovered higher up the
hill carrying lead, silver and gold
in commercial quantities. Assay
returns received from samples
from this vein have given 25 per
cent lead, 30 ozs. silver, and $3.80
gold per ton. By driving a tunnel
on the lower ledge a distance of
300 feet this upper vein will be
encountered ataconsiderabledepth
as it intersects the larger vein, and
if expectations are realized it
would be a proven property.
These two ledges each carrying
Billy Jack, Musician, Leaves
Anyox
All music lovers—and their
name is legion—who have been
delighted with the violin playing
of Billy Jack, learned with regret
of liis departure from camp last
week. The Melodians of the Mine
Club will especially miss him. He
helped to establish the orchestra
over two years ago, aud played his
farewell engagement with them at
Alice Arm on Saturday. Capable
of playing with great charm and
beauty of tone when demanded,
his generally snyucopated style,
added just that pep, so necessary
to the lilt of the modern dance tune.

Homeguard is a property of vast
possibilities.
The property is ideally located
for inexpensive development. It
joins the Dolly Varden railway and
its chief showings are only 750 feet
distant on the east side of the
river. A bridge is built across the
