New Strike of High
Ore at the Dolly
Varden Mine
What promises to develop into a
; big strike of high grade ore, was
made at the Dolly Varden Mine
1 last week. The strike was made
on the surface, about 20 feet above
the old workings, and is covered
by a rook slide. The extent of the
lend can not at present be ascertained on account of the large
quantity of 'loose rock and dirt
covering it, four men are at present
busily engaged in clearing it off.
Picked samples have assayed
267 ozs. in silver, which has been
the highest obtained so far: Samples taken on a 4 ft. width have
assayed 58 ozs. The ore is ruby
silver and argentite, with some
galena.
Work on uncovering the lead
will be proceeded with as rapidly
as possible, and there is no doubt
that the rattle of the miner's drills
will again be heard at the Dolly
Varden mine before the show flies.

Dance at Alice
Arm for Anyox
Campers
The Dance given on Tuesday
evening, in honor of our visitors
from Anyox who are camping here,
proved to be one of the best dances
held at Alice Arm. The floor was
crowded with dancers, and everyone had a real good, enjoyable
time* Sociability and good fellowship was the order of the evening,
and everyone enjoyed themselves
to the limit, as they generally do
hi a pioneer mining camp, and
■Alice Arm is no exception.
After the gigantic supper provided by the ladies—and by the
way the dishes were piled, they are
some providers—everyone was reja-
dy to dance until the sun showed
up over old Mt. McGraw.
Music was furnished by Miss M.
Stanley, who also donated the ice
cream, of which there must have
been pails full.. It kept the redoubtable Harry Fowler more than
busy with the steaming pots of
coffee,., mountains of sandwiches,
and cake, and the pails of ice cream,
but Harry is there every time, and
no one went hungry. Mr. George
Bruggy was floor manager, and as
usual, was the life of the dance.
Mrs. E. McCoy kindly allowed
the use of the Hotel dining room
for the dance, and also supplied the

Wended their way homewards, with
the satisfaction of having spent a,
very enjoyable evening. •
NEW SCHOOL FOR
ALICE ARM
A meeting of the Alice Arm
School Board was held in the office
of the Alice Arm Freighting Co.,
on Wednesday, August 3rd, and
it was decided to proceed to build
a new school as soon as the money

lias appropriated $300 towards the
cost of a new school, and it is up to
the citizens of Alice Arm to raise
the balance. There will be a working bee on Sunday afternoon, to
clear the four government lots on

boarding house, for the school site,
and it is hoped everyone will be
there.

ANYOX BASEBALL
At the end of a tiring day, a bishop
was conducting a confirmation service
at which there were a large number of
candidates. The last to come up was
an old man with a perfectly bald head.
The weary bishop placed his hands
upon his head in the usual manner,
but in the most unusual manner was
heard to exclaim os he did so.
'I declare this stone to be well and
truly laid.
The game on Friday, July 29th,
between the Elks and mine, was a
package of surprises for the large
crowd who attended, and the most
surprised were the Elks. Draudson and Down were the battery for
the Elks, and off like a whirlwind
in the second innings the Elks had
ten runs against the mine's 0.
There was a great ringing of cow
bells, and Mr. Brown, of the mine,
was advised from certain quarters
to bring out a ball team. Thomas
was behind the bat, and Ferguson
in the box for the mine. Jimmy
had an off day and requested the
manager to pitch someone else. So
Frank Mealy was called upon to
perform at the slab., More cow
bells; but Fninkie was the little
boy in blue who could deliver the
goods. He held the Elks down to
one more run, while the miners
romped around the diamond for
twelve runs. Transferring defeat
into victory with a score of 12 to
11. The bells had lost their
tongues.
The Baseball League table on
August 3rd, was as follows:

Scenic Beauties of
the Illiance River
On Wednesday, July 20th, Mrs.
Bromley and Mrs. Ethel Calhoun,
of Seattle, with Mr. Ralph Ingra-
ham. as guide, left Silver City,
Alice Arm, for the head waters of
the Illiance River. On account of
the immense volume of water in
the river at this time, the falls of
the first and second canyon were
especially beautiful. The party
lunched at Copper Creek, and passed over a rough and rugged country
and steep climbs to the Government road camp at Eleven Mile,
where the genial cook served a delicious cup of tea to the weary
travellers that cheered them on to
Golden Crest Cabin, where they
made their first oamp,
The following morning, in spite
of the threatening weather, a trip
was made to Bowman Lake, where
many fishermen indulge in their
favorite sport. A lunch was enjoyed in the cabin by the hungry
crowd.
On Friday, the trail was resumed
and many beautiful rivulets and
miniature lakes, among fields of
moss and flowers were seen, that
surpass any attempt at Japanese
landscape gardening. Waterfalls
tumbling down from high moun-.
tains on either side, added to the
scene, and the roaring of the falls
made a pleasant sound.
At noon, the Bellevue camp was
reached, and a "Delmonico" dinner
was served. The cordial welcome
which is extended to all travellers
in the hills, makes the stops pleasing, and especially so here.
The Monarch Cabin, 16 miles
from tidewater, was reached at 4
p.m., where they found that some
earlier traveller had built a fire
and dug a water hole through the
snow. This cabin is situated on
the divide between the Illiance
and Naas Rivers, a spot of wondrous beauty, Near by, is an
immense waterfall that divides,
part flowing into a field of snow
and down a gorge into the Naas,
and the other into a beautiful lake
banked with snow and moss, then
on into the Illiance River.
After a day of rest, the party
left early Sunday morning for a
climb to the summit of Old Baldy,
the highest peak of all the surrounding country. It was a long
hard climb, over precipitous places,
and through snow fields. The
flowers; forget-me-nots and others
of purple and gold were gorgeous.
The pink and white heather covering the mountain sides were beautiful. Before reaching the summit
a herd of mountain goat was sighted feeding on a distant ledge. A
shot fired drove the herd up the
steep bank of the crater side of Old
Baldy and over the summit. At
one o'clock, the summit was reached, where the party rested, had
lunch, took some pictures, and
marvelled at the earth beneath.
Immense waterfalls, many lakes,
including Bowman's famous lakes,
blue glistening glaciers and the
Naas Valley in the distance were
viewed through the glasses. To
the right, Mt. Theopolis could be
seen, the snow-capped mountain
across The Arm from Silver City,
at whose base is situated the Dolly
Varden Wharf and the town of
Alice Arm. In the far distance
could be seen the glacial topped
mountain at Granby, on whose
sides hung the smelter smoke. The
mountains of the Kitsault and
Alaska touched the horizon to the
west and north. The return trip
was exciting and thrilling, short
cuts being made by sliding or
"glasliding" down the snow fields,
On Monday, the party moved to
the last camping place, The Glacier.
The trail to this oamp led down
through a deep narrow canyon,
whose sides, almost perpendicular,
led up to snow-capped peaks.
Here the snow and land slides had
obstructed the trail with great
boulders, uprooted trees and huge
piles of snow. This appeared to be
the favorite spot for the marmot,
the bear and the wolverine, as very
recent tracks were discovered in
the snow. Glacier Camp is situated on the banks of a beautiful
little mineral stream,' whose water
surpasses in flavor all others.
A trip on the glacier was made
passing over and around deep crevasses and fantastic water holes.
After three hours of arduous
climbing, pictures were taken of
ice tributaries of the- main glacier,
showing blocks of ice 20 to 30 feet
high. A good view was also obtained of the Glacier View mineral
claim, from which valuable samples
of ruby silver have recently been
secured. Interesting excursions
were made to the base or mouth of
the glacier, where the moraines,
showing the retreat of the glacier
were studied. From this glacier
flows the Tchitin River, one of the
head tributaries of the Naas River,
Reluctantly camp was broken,
and the return trip accomplished
in two days. A trip of this sort
proves to one the grandeur of the
Canadian mountains. Among the
beauties noted were 50 different
species of flowers, trees near timber
line, years old and but a few inches
high, beautiful birds, gorgeous in
color and delightful in song, interesting animals whose tracks tempt
one to linger on to picture them in
their native haunts, To surmount
all, are the grand old peaks, silent
sentinels to this marvellous land of
enchantment.
GOVERNMENT ROAD
AND TRAIL WORK
Work on the Illiance River trail
is going ahead. Mr. A, L. Car-
ruthers, District Engineer was in
town last week, and in company
with Mr. George Young, made an
inspection of the trail, stopping at
the Bellevue Mine over-night.
The trail on the north-east fork
of the Kitsault River, will be extended three or four miles. The
bridge on the wharf road in front
of the Hotel, will be built as soon
as the lumber is ready. The lumber is being supplied by Mr. C. P.
Riel, who operates the local sawmill.
Work consisting of four or five
miles of foot trail on Hastings Arm
will also be done this summer, and
more work on the upper Kitsault
will probably be done later on.

Movement in Anyox
for Ice Skating Rink
Last Sunday, the Anyox General
Store held their annual picnic at
Alice Arm, and a very exciting
baseball game was staged in the
afternoon. The excitement ran
high and most of the players were
on their toes" at every stage of
the game. Double plays were
pulled off repeatedly, and shut outs
were a common oceurance. Manager Mann was urging his team on
to greater efforts, and instilled
confidence in his players, being cool
and collected on all occasions, however, the breaks unfortunately
went against them just at the
critical times, and the local boys
pulled out ahead by a small
margin. Jimmy Dunn was unable
to play for the Store team, owing
to an injury received on his leg
earlier in the day. Jim, however,
was ready and willing to jump into
the game,
Don Cameron drove a homer
into the creek, and Oatman also
made a home run. As a base runner he is hard to beat.

THE MAN AROUND
TOWN
The mine beat the Elks i to 2 on
Wednesday, last, at football. It was
a snappy game and the mine outplayed
the Elks at every stage of the game
in the first half. R. Wilkinson umpired the game satisfactory.
On Thursday, the Elks and mine
played baseball. We have not got
over that exhibition game yet. At
the end of the third innings, the game
was 10 to 0, in favor of the Elks and
then the fun started. Pete blew up
for an innings and he was taken out,
and Cody pitched: but still the riot
went on, with the mine hitting all
over the lot. Finally Napoleon was
brought into the pitchers box again,
He did good work, but had poor support in the field, the mine winning out
with the score 12-11.
The game was the most exciting this
season, and the mine rooters are to be
complimentedpn their excellent work.
For once the hand bull ringers went
home in a subdued frame of mind)
while Ed. Swanson and his followers
wore the smile that refused to fade
away. Harold Davis was umpire, and
his work was good, while Danny Dean
on the base line kept up his reputation. ,
Mrs. Sam Heirin and family arrived
home on Thursday, All are looking
well. -Their trip done them good.
Mrs. Emile Lpeske also returned
from a trip to Grand Forks.
Fred Myers was a visitor in town for
a short while.
On Friday night the Elks again lost
to the smelter, the score being 2-1.
The Elks, however, did not play their
regular team, as some of the boys
were still limping around town; but
the team played excptionally well
under the circumstances.
The A. 0. L. Orchestra gave a dance
the same evening, in the Recreation
Hall. The crowd was small owing to
the hot weather. The orchestra pulled off a disappearing act during their
programme, which might be .left out
without lowering their dignity at all.
This is the lucky week for the mine.
On Saturday afternoon, the office
staff played a game of baseball with
the office staff at the beach. From accounts received from Napoleon Draudson as an eye witness, the game was
replete with plays that are seldom
seen here. The score was 17-5 in favor
of the mine.
Charlie Gray has received a wire to
play shortstop for the B. C. Elks team
which is to play a game at Calgary,
during their convention week, this
month, Harry Chapman is all het up
over it.   ,
Walter Lang came in on Monday's
boat, on business.
On Sunday, the general store staff,
held its annual holiday at Alice Arm.
Transportation was furnished by the
"Awake," "Effle" and "Wanderer,"
All were away from the float by 8.45,
and at the Ann before 11 a.m. From
there the crowd went to the Park,
where a fine lunch was laid for them
on a canvas on the grass, The arrangements for finding this vast and
splendid aggregation, was in the capable hands of Mr. James Dunn and his
assistants. They worked nobly and
everyone did justice to the wonderful
spread.   There was a hue and cry for
our chief comedian, who was reportei
missing, but he was finally locate!
under a spreading chestnut tree witl
a sparkling glass of something whicl
cheers but does not inebriate, and al
was well.
Then after lunch, everyone repairec
to the baseball ground, where Alic<
Arm were treated to an exhibition of
ball that Anyox can turn out any old
day in the week. Harry Marin was
captain of the team, and he did well
although some members of the team
who wished to play and could not,|
thought he fell down on the job; but
a captain's lot is not as smooth as
some people imagine. Of course they
got beaten, but Harry Fowler got
their goat with his rooters. Then
again, they did not know as much of
the game as they thought they did.
After the game everyone went back
to the park, and had races for the
store staff, These were handled in an
able manner by Harold Baillion. We
should judge from the way some of the
races were run that if any of the boys
are ever out of a job they can soon get
another as contortionist or knock-about acrobat. After another high-
class meal which included lots ot ice
cream, everyone wended their way to
the wharf, and so ended one of the
happiest outings ever held by the
Staff of the General Store. ,
Mrs. Davis, the Dressmaker, is back
again from a Hying business trip to
Prince Rupert.
The B. P. O, Elks, held a successful
meeting last Monday evening. Three
new members were initiated, and after
the meeting, music was furnished and
also a dutch lunch;
