Football Dance Was a
Tremendous Success
One of the Biggest Crowds
of Season
The summersohedule of football
games in AnyoK is now well under
way. The first game being played
on Tuesday of last week before a
record crowd of fans. During the
| game, the Anyox Band under the
leadership of J. J. Varnes kept the
spectators in good spirits with
soma excellent selections.
Following the commencement of
the summer schedule a football
dance was held in the Gymnasium
on Friday night for the purpose of
raising sufficient funds to defray
| expenses of equipment. The money
having already been advanced by
the Community League. It was one
of the biggest and best dances of
the season and all those who
attended proclaimed it as one of
the best ever.
The receipts were very gratifying
and showed a balance of $200.70.
This success was largely due to
the small expense entailed, am-
ountly to only $14.30. Nearly
everything being supplied gratis.
G. Crow of the Smelter office
! staff was the master of ceremonies,
and The Syncopated Six supplied
the musio, in their usual highly
efficient manner, and which was
given gratis.
Supper was served at 11 o'clock,
the managing of which were in the
oapable hands of Mrs. P. McDougall Mrs. H. Patrick, and Mrs. J.
Tierney.
I Our old friend Ed. Ashton was
in oharge of the door, while the
coffee was of Jimmy Thompson's
celebrated brew.
During the supper interval Mr.
ICrow performed a very pleasing
Keremony, when .he presented
nweaters to the Mine Girls' Basketball team, who are last season's
lihampions. Fred Brown, the
poach was also remembered.
tThe committee in charge of
ihe dance, were: D. Boyd, H. Cane,
r. Buntain, D. Wilson and E.
>aggs. They wish to extend
heir warmest thanks to everyone
vho by their generosity helped
owards the evening's success, and
ian assure them that their assist-
,nce was appreciated.

Boat Schedules Again Change
Commencing next week, the C.
N. S. S. Prince George will arrive
in Anyox from the south at 7. a.m.
on Thursday and leave at 1 o'clock
noon the same day for the south.
Commencing next week, the
Awake will leave Alice Arm at
9 a.m. on Thursday and leave
Anyox at 3 p.m. the same day,
arriving with mail at Alice Arm at
5 p.m.
Keystone  Mining  Co.
Have Extensive
Programme
A pi'ogramme of active development for this year has been outlined by the Keystone Mining Co.
on the Sunset property • near
Roundy Creek, states Mr. O. Gray,
who   returned   on  Monday from
Seattle.
The first work to be undertaken
will consist of improving the present trail from tide water, so that'
the necessary machinery can be
taken in. A number of men will
be put to work immediately on the
trail.
It is the intention of the company
to drive a new tunnel lower down
the hill from the present workings
It will be made large ' enough for
use as a hauling tunnel.
A compressor plant, consisting
of a Petters-Youvill engine 28-B.
H. P. will be installed. It will be
capable of operating two drills,
which will be N. 72's.
The opening of the Keystone Co.
makes the sixth property being
worked in the district, and it is
expected that several others will
shortly follow suit now that the
snow is fast receding on the
mountains.
Samples of ore taken from the
property a short time ago for
assaying purposes have given encouraging results, aud gave an
average value of $60.00 per ton.
The values being obtained as follows: gold. |2.00; silver, $20.00;
and lead, $38.00. The ore also
carries zino, which will add considerably to these values. These
values are exceptionally good, in
view of the fact that it is all practically surface rook.
The property is ideally located
in regard to transportation, being
only l£ miles from tidewater. It
has an elevation of 2500 feet. The
installation of an aerial tram would
solve all transportation problems
and the company would be able to
load their ore on board ship at a
ridiculous low figure compared
with other companies operating
inland.
More Logs Leaving
Alice Arm for South
The log carrying barge Drumrook
owned by Johnson & Waltham,
arrived in Alice Arm Thursday
night, and is loading logs owned
by Miles Donald. The logs are in
the water about three miles down
the inlet and comprise one and a
quarter million feet b.m. The capacity of the Drumrock may not,
however, be sufficient to stow all
the logs. The logs will be taken
to the Powell river plant. .
The Drumrook was here a short
time ago when she loaded logs from
the booms of J. O. Trethewey.
She is commanded by Capt.
Martin.

Anyox Footballers Now
Hitting Their
Stride
Smelter obtain Draw in their
First Game
The Smelter and the Mine were
opponents in the second football
game which took place Thursday
evening last week. The best the
Smelter could do on their debut
was to get a draw, no goals being
scored by either side. The play
was mostly in midfield during the
entire contest, neither goalie being
tested more than on two or three
occasions. The Smelter have trotted out a new goal lender in the
person of Jack Hill. While he has
not been severely tested as yet, he
certainly handled himself well on
the one or two chances he did have.
The miners used identically the
same line-up that put over a win
on the Beach on Tuesday evening,
while the Smelter have almost the
same team as last year with the
exception of one or t.wo additions
mainly players from last year's
Mine and Beach squads. J. Evans
was the referee and handled the
whistle in fine style.
Teams were:
Mine: Evans, Stultz, Victor,
Jones, Waller, Hunter, Cane,
Barnes, Hunter. Parker, Dearlove.
Smelter: Kirkland, Stewart,
Lavery, Peters, Matheson, Wilson,
Powell, Buntain, Hunter, Pynn.
Smelter Defeat Beach 40
The Smelter football eleven went
into a tie for first place with the
Mine team when they defeated the
Beach four goals to nil on Tuesday
evening. Buntain was the individual star for the winners, by performing the hat trick, notching
three of the goals scored by his
side. A penalty shot was given
against the Beach by referee Robertson, when Hunter put his hands
to the ball. Powell took the shot
and gave goalie Hunter no chance
to save. The Smelter seem to have
a fairly evenly matched team aud
with the addition of one or two
players should develop into a hard
combination to beat. The Beach
need considerable strengthening
before they will prove very dangerous to the opposing teams. Robertson was the referee giving entire
satisfaction.
Teams were:
Beach: Hunter, W, Hunter,
Pete Green, Pinkney, Carmichael,
LawRon, Craggs, Mahoney, Ellison,
Taylor, Dunn.
Smelter: Hill, Pynn, Stewart
Kirkland, Peters, Lavery, Hunter,
Barclay, Buntain, Powell, Davis.
H. Cane, manager of the Mine
football team is yery enthusiastic
over the performance of his team
aud it is rumored that they are
sure of taking the cup up to the
hill this year. Mr. Cane has had
considerable experience in football.
He was at one time on the line-up
of one of the leading teams in the
south of England. ALICE   ARM  AND   ANYOX  HEBALD,   Saturday,   May   22,   1926

It is the belief of a number of
those prominent in provincial mining circles, that the day of the
picturesque toiling prospector is
rapidly passing. Frequently one of
these "leading lights" will arise
and solemnly declare that the old
time prospector is doomed. They
tell us that the college bred geologist is ousting him from his favorite haunts, and that perfection of
electrical devices for locating ore
will clinch the nails in his coffin.
These gentlemen have a perfect
right to their convictions, but we
do not believe their statements will
ever be fulfilled. The last prospector will disappear in British
Columbia about the same time that
the last ton of ore is mined and it
will be a long time before that
tragic event is enacted. If it were
possible to obtain a total of the
amount of work done throughout
the province by the prospectors
plus the value of supplies and time
expended and convert these into
dollars, the total value of work
would be far greater than the operating companies of the province
would care to shoulder. The
prospector is the greatest asset the
mining companies possess. He
builds the cabins to shelter mining
engineers and geologists who follow
him, and his work (executed often
under extreme hardships) separates
the good ground from the bad, as
the culled apple is separated from
the sound. The mining companies
can not afford to see the prospector disappear, nor can the province.
The fruits of his labor have added
millions of dollars to the revenue
of the province, and it is increasing each year.
Down in Idaho and Washington
the worth of the prospector is
apparently appreciated much more
than it is in B. C. if we are to
judge by the utterances of some
of our mining celebrities and the
following articles. The foremost
of which was written by P. A.
O'Farrell, in Spokane Mining
Truth, and the second an
editorial published in the Pocatello
Tribune.
"Of all the pioneers, gold hunters
and prospectors are the most interesting. They are often also greater
benefactors to mankind than the
millions who seek political and
literary fame.
"With a pick, a gun, a pony and
a mule the prospector wends his
way over desert wastes or blazes
trails through dense forests. He
pans the sands of the mountain
stream, or picks at some tiny quartz
fissures iu the granite hills. Often
lie sleeps under the shade of a pine
or a cedar on the mountain side,
not far from the limit of perennial
snow.
"Sometimes he hunts for days or
whips the streams for mountain
trout, but soon he moves on, ever
hoping that ere the sun sets he will
crown his labors with some great
discovery. But the far greater
number spend a lifetime in the
wilderness or in the defiles of the
mountains and never find ought
but blanks. They merely blaze
the trail for others."
' Great men are those prospectors.
The world owes them much. In
the first place they are the world's
greatest pioneers. They go into
lonely places and remain there for
years. When one prospect fails
another is at hand. When one
lead dwindles they calmly take
after another. It is always so.
This following the will o' the wisp
would tire any but the prospector.
No other race of men could staud
it: could have the sustained courage.
"As we looked into the face of
this old prospector, we realized in
small part what he had undergone,
we thought what a debt Idaho
owes to these men. It made us
doubly glad that Idaho mining
was coming into its own, that the
fruits of this prospecting was about
to be gathered.
"Idaho is entering upon a mining era greater than it has ever
known. It owes it all to the inter-
pid prospectors who went into the
out of the way places and spent
lonesome years in finding the ores.
Idaho should erect a monument to
their memory so that all the world
might know what they had done,
and especially that our own children
coming on should know something
of the men who blazed the way and
went out in the world to find
wealth for us."

George Wingfield Again
Engaged in Mining
George Wingfield, "richest man
iu Nevada," and who ia interested
iii the Dolly Varden Mine, has returned to active mining operations.
Through the reorganized Booth
Mining company, which he controls
he will develop four mining properties in the Quartz Mountain
district. i:
Mr. Wingfield, since the earliest
days; of the Goldfield camp, has
been identified with every important mining situation in southern
Nevada. It was his genius in
partnership with the late United
States Senator George F. Nixon
that completed the organization of
the Goldfield Consolidated Mines
I company, which in the following
nine years, distributed close on to
$30,000,000 to its stockholders. It
is stated that his share was in
excess of $8,000,000. In recent
years he has been devoting himself
almost exclusively, to his banking
j interests, until today he controls
110 banks in the state with 65 per
I cent of all the state's deposits.
Mr. Wingfield ma.de a personal
| visit to the properties, which had
already been favorably reported on
by E. A. Julian and A. H. Lawry,
two of his engineers, Mr. Lawry
being resident Goldfield manager
of the Goldfield Consolidated Mines
company.
Announcement of  the Winfield
[plans was accompanied by a sudden
i rise in reorganized Booth shares,
whioh went from three to around
10 cents but   later reacted.     San
Rafael also showed a deoided appre-
| ciatiou, hitting 25 cents and react-
j ing to 15.

The Canadian   National   Railways
' will operate a forty-three day Personally Conducted Educationally Tour to
Europe this Summer, sailing via the
. "Athenia" from Montreal July
9th direct  to Glasgow.   Proceeding
from there, the party will visit different points of interest in Scotland,
England, Holland, Belgium, Switzerland and France, also an opportunity
fib visit the Battlefields.   Returning to
England, will sail from Liverpool on
, S. "Aurania" August 13th for Montreal,     Considering the number   of
rtoints visited, the accomodation provided, and entertainment offered, this
Is one of the lowest priced Tours ever

No time is being lost in getting
things in shape at the Dunwell
mine. The site of the concentrator
for the construction of which Lloyd
G White M. E., of the San Fran-
cisco firm of Butch Hershey &
White, arrived, last Sunday, will
be adjacent to the main Bear river
wagon road, about 200 yards north
of jGlacier.iereek. This is now being surveyed and it is anticipated
that clearing will commence in
about three weeks. Supervising
Foreman Alexander Scobie is expected to arrive from the south
Monday for the purpose of supervising the construction, under the
supervision of Mr. White.
A change in the location of the
upper train terminal has been decided upon. To a point just north
of the portal of No. 4 tunnel. As
soon as the survey for this has
been completed by Daldy B. Morkill, who arrives from Vancouver
Monday, clearing right of way will
commence, and the towers located,
which will probably be eight in
number. It is expected by the
management that the clearing will
commence by the end of next week.
D. C.
Jackling  Presented
With Medal
Daniel C. Jackling of San Francisco is the recipient of a gold
medal from the Mining and Metallurgical Society of America for his
work in developing low-grade
mines. Thirty years ago Jackling
had a hard time convincing friends
at Republic, Wash., that he knew
of a "mountain of low-grade copper
in Utah, That mountain is now
mined with steam shovels by the
Utah Copper company and Jackling is a multimillionaire.
A man was arrested and charged
with assault and battery, and was
brought before the magistrate.
"What is your name?" asked the
magistrate.
"What is your occupation and what
are you charged with?"
"My name is Sparks," replied the
defendant. "I am an electrician
and I am charged with battery."
"Well," said the magistrate to the
court official, "take him to a dry cell.

position with the Consolidated

Then and Now
Thirty years ago, beer was five cents
a glass and the lunch wus free.
Eggs were three dozen for a quarter;
milk was five cents a quart.
The butcher gave liver to the cat
and treated the kids to bologna.
The hired girl was satisfied with $2
per week and did the washing.
Women did not powder or paint,
smoke, play poker, and skake the
shimmy.
The kerosene lamp and stereopticon
in the parlor were luxuries.
No one was operated on for appendicitis.
Polks lived to a good old age just the
same and walked miles to wish their
friends a merry Christmas.
Today, everybody rides in automobiles or airships, plays poker, shoots
crap, plays the piano with their feet
goes to the movies, smokes cigarettes
and blames the H. C. L. cm the government.
They never go to bed the same day
they get up and think they are having
a wonderful time.
This is the age of suffragettes, prohibition, excess taxes and profiteers,
