Has Been Made Near
Kitsault Glacier
A rich strike of high grade ore
j carrying good values in gold,
silver and copper, has recently been
made by John Hauber and William
McLean on the Lucky Strike and
i Cascade Falls mineral claims.
1 The lead is 16 feet wide and has
been traced on the surface the full
length of two mineral claims.
Open cuts have been made on the
surface for a distance of about 400
feet and it is the intention of the
owners to drive a tunnel 50 feet in
length early next spring to crosscut the ore body at a depth of 100
The property is situated two
claim lengths south-west of the
Homestake mine and consists of
the Lucky Strike, Cascade Falls,
Silver Crown and Sunyside mineral claims! Samples taken last
month across a width of 16 feet
averaged $140.00 in gold and silver
per ton, the values being about
equally divided between the two
metals. The ore also runs high in
bornite' and yellow copper. A
sample of the ore is on view in
Bruggy's Store and is well worth
an inspection.
A smaller vein has also been
located on the Silver Crown, which
is higher up the hill. This vein is
about one foot wide and samples
taken last year assayed 35 ozs.
silver and $8,00 in gold per ton.
ifhe property is owned by Win,
McLean and John • Hauber and

August, 1912. They are both old
residents in the district and are to
be congratulated^ on their recent
A more sysmtematic system of
prospecting has been done in the
vicinity of the Kitsault Glaoier
since the Homestake mine has been
operating and some exceptionally
fine bodies, of ore have been expos-
on several properties. The ore in
nearly all cases in this locality
carries high gold values in addition
to the silver and oop*per values.
The whole country is highly mineralized and there is no doubt that
further big bodies of pre will be
located in the near future.
New Discovery of
Ore at Anyox
' Mr. W, Hanna made a new dis:
covery of ore on his claims joining
the Hidden Creek Mine at Anyox,
last week. The strike was, made
on the Emma claim and is situated
1200 feet north from the showings
Was Brought To Alice
Arm This Week
It is a crying shame that a rich
and fertile valley like the Naas
should be allowed to stand idle.
Gus. Webber visited Alice Arm
this week, dnd brought from the
Naas several bundles of native
grown tobacco leaf, which compare most favorably with any
grown in B. C. With soil and
climate producing and ripening
tomatoes, corn and fruit, what
more could be desired. We are
informed that the valley is absolutely free from disastrous summer
frosts which visit so many of the
other districts" that have been
thrown open to laiyl seekers.
We are asked why it remains
stagnant and has not been settled
up. As in so many cases the
means of transportation is lacking,
due to the fact that not even a
trail leads into the valley from
tidewater. Just think, from Alice
Arm where the boats call regularly
a wagon road could be built over a
route eighteen miles in length
and positively free from a greater
than a three per cent grade.
If this was costructed or even a
trail slashed out, stock and_supplies
could be transported in and out
and there is no doubt it would only
be a short time until a healthy
settlement of prosperous farmers
would spring up. Let us get together and persist in our endeavours to bring this matter to the
attention of the government.
THERE are 700 quarter sections of land of 160 acres
each, making a total of 112,000
acres, laying idle in the Naas
Valley. This land is all surveyed. The soil is rich and the
climate is perfect. Average
snowfall is from two to three
feet. No summer frosts, as the
valley has a low elevation. This
land is laying idle for the lack
a road to tidewater. Alice Arm
is the nearest point on tidewater
for the Naas Valley. Let us
urge upon the government the
necessity of a means of communication between Alice Arm and
the Naas Valley, so that it will
be possible to cultivate this vast
and fertile tract of land,
uncovered last June. The extent
of the new1 discovery is not yet
known, but work will be done as
quickly as possible to ascertain.the
extent of the ore body.
Meeting of the Anyox
Community League
The Recreation Hall was almost
filled to capacity on the evening of
Sept. 23rd last, when a meeting of
Community League took place.
Mr. Robert Armour occupied the
chair which was rather a difficult
proposition owing to the fact that,
with the exception of two, all the
members of the Council had resigned, and as four councillors are
necessary to form a quorum, someone suggested that the meeting
was unconstitutional. However,
it was a members' meeting and it
clearly showed that no small portion of the citizens are interested
in community affairs and are anxious to see the league continue.
Dr. Bancroft briefly outlined the
position of the company with regard to the league, and he hoped
that the citizens would continue to
administer community affairs, as
the management had no desire to
deprive the league of that privilege.
It was then decided to take a
vote by ballot of the members as to
whether the Community League
continue or turn the community
and wellfare business over to the
company; the vote to be taken on
Wednesday, Sept. 28th, and a
committee of ladies were appointed
as scrutineers to handle the ballot,
viz.: Miss Reader, Mrs. Bromley,
Mrs. Robbins, Mrs. Barr, Mrs.
Lambert and Mrs. Hollinrake, representing the beach; and Mrs.
Jenkinson, Mrs. Lowrey and Mrs.
McKay, representing the mine.

Anyox in Favor of
Community League
Majority Votes in Favor
of Present System
Thevvote on icontinuation of the
Anyox Community League on
Wednesday, Sept. 28th last, was
a decided victory for the "Keep the
League alive movement." %
In spite of the wet weather there
were 216 members who turned out
to vote.
The ladies who acted as scrutineers are deserving of great praise
for the efficient way they handled
the ballot. Mr. John Conway,
Stipendary Magistrate, acted, as
umpire at the counting of the vote.
The result of the three polling
booths was as follows, viz.:
For   Against
Mine -15 5
Beach Me<j»....... 79        31
Library   69        26
154        62
Majority in favor of continuing
league, 92.
The vote proves that the Community League is popular in
Anyox and that the majority of
the members have enough confidence in their ability to conduct
community affairs. All movements
of a public nature have their opposition, but in this case for every
two votes cast against it there
were five in favor of the league.
It is now the duty, of the members to get busy in the selection of
candidates for the council, and
there should be no difficulty in
getting enough level-headed, enterprising and progressive men and
women in Anyox to carry on the
good work.
The organizing and developing
of the league's activities to their
present standard are the results of
many hours of hard work put in
by a small number of painstaking,
conscientious and public: spirited
citizens whose only incentive for
their efforts was the desire to accomplish something which would
be beneficial to the community
within which they lived, and it
would be a crime to allow the
fruits of their endeavors to be
thrown to the winds.

Skating Rink at
Alice Arm to
be Operated
Policy is Outlined for the
Coming Year.
In response to the notices posted
relative to the meeting held last
Friday evening a good representative gathering convened in the
office of the Alice Arm Freighting
Company for the purpose of discussing matters pertaining to the
operating of the skating rink this
coming winter.
A brief review of last year's
financial statement was presented
to the meeting, and in view of the
fact that the year's deficit of practically $390.00 had to be paid out
of the coming season's receipts, it
was decided to go ahead with only
the absolutely necessary improvements. These will cost in the
neighborhood of possibly $200.00
and will cover the installation of a
water system which will dispense
with the laborious task of flooding
the ice by means of the-hand pump
which was used last year, and also
provide for the reinforcement of
the roof, which will render it capable of withstanding any exceptionally heavy falls of snow. In
all, a total sum of $250.00 will
have to be raised this winter from
the sale of season tickets and gate
receipts in order that at the eiid of
the year a clear balance sheet may
be shown. The matter of the best
and fairest charge to be made in
regard to the price of season tickets
was discussed at length, and it was
finally decided that the following
schedule be adopted: All local
people over fifteen years of age to
pay $10.00 per ticket; all fifteen
years and under, $5.00 per ticket;
out - of - town patrons, $5.00 per
ticket. It was also decided that
there would be no free skating this
season as was prevelant last year.
Only those holding tickets or paying a regular entrance fee will be
allowed on the ice. At these rates
it was felt that possibly we could
carry on without going into debt.
As the running of the rink is purely
for the purpose of offering amusement and good) wholesome exercise
during the long winter months, and
not a money - making proposition,
everyone is urged to give their
support and patronage in order
that this season may surpass last
year in affording everyone a good
Patrons of the skating rink are
much indebted to Mr. A. D. Hallett,
who voluntarily performed a very
arduous taskln the levelling of the
floor of the rink. Mr. Hallett has
always been one of the first to volunteer for anything of this nature,
showing the true community spirit
at all times. Those who assisted
last year in the flooding of the rink
will fully appreciate the good work
Mr. Hallett has done. ALICE   ARM   AND   ANYOX   HERALD,   Alice  Arm,   Saturday, October 1st., 1921

The Anyox
Community League.
The people of Anyox made it
decidedly plain last Wednesday
that they were in favor of the
Community League system ol
conducting the social affairs of the
town instead of turning the work
over to the company and going
back to the old style of having six
or seven different organizations operating, each one independent of
the other and all in financial difficulties. It is now up to the citizens
of Anyox to select their representatives to serve on the Council, and
it is hoped that a wise choice will
be made. There has not been a
Council yet that has worked in
harmony together and it is to be
hoped that the next Council will
be an improvement in that direct-
Of course, nearly all of us
have different opinions on various
subjects, but the different problems
arising should and can be threshed
out in a friendly spirit. We have
all got to give and take a little and
if any person on the Council do
not get the unanimous support of
his colleagues at all times, he
should not lose his temper and act
like a spoilt child. The Council
are the representatives of the people who elected them and they are
therefore their servants, and should,
if it is possible carry out the wishes
of the majority of the members.
It has been said during the past
year that there is not enough room
in Anyox for two organizations,
namely, the Community League
and the B. P. O. Elks. The
people who cultivate that opinion
must be very narrow-minded and
who can not see further than the
tip of their nose. They should
raise their heads and sweep a
higher and broader vision. There
is in Anyox today, room for
twenty-two organizations such as
the two now in existence, both are
doing good work in the way of
healthy sports, recreation, amusements and learning, and when you
have those kind of organizations in
your midst you can not get too
many of them. It is up to the
two organizations to work in harmony at all times; to cultivate a
friendly spirit and to co-operate
with each other whenever it is
possible. If such a policy is carried out it will go a long way
toward making Anyox the happiest
mining town in British Columbia.
Let us hope the next Council
of the Community League will use
good, sound judgement and make
the League still more popular than
it has been in the past
Oil Boom Hits Central
British Columbia
The entire country from the head of
Kaluni Lake to the foot of Lakelse
Lake, a distance of approximately 35
miles has been staked for oil by Mr,
Cameron, representing an oil syndicate, in which it is rumored British
capital is interested. The syndicate
which is stated to control unlimited
capital, is expected to start drilling
somewhere in the vicinity of Terrace
in the course of a few weeks.
An oil boom seems to be developing
ovef the whole of central B. O. Oil
claims are being staked all along the
G. T. P. Railroad, and also in the district of the Francois and Burns LakeB.
Gas explosions under some of the
lakes have been reported, the water
being blown high in the air.

We're the pioneers of the last great west,
Sons of the Empire and some of the best,
We're the salt of the earth so Honest John said,
Strong in the back and strong in the head.
We've waited patiently years upon years.
With curses deep and with bitter shed tears,
For a road into the rich valley of the Naas,
But the Lord only knows when it'll come to pass.
The land is the finest that can be found,
From the Yukon down to Puget Sound,
No summer frosts cut down our crops,
And we're protected from rain by the mountain tops.
A wonderful rich valley that's going to waste,
Will the government please show a little haste,
And have a road built at once so that we,
Can carry our produce down to the sea.
To Alice Arm it's only eighteen miles,
And the road would'nt have to be built upon .piles.
A firm road-bed can be made all the way,
And a road once built would be there tovstay.
God speed the day when it will come to pass,
That a road will be built into the Naas,
And fill up the country both good and full,
With livestock and grain, but nix on the bull.

Coal Property to be
Sold to Pay Wages
and Govt. Taxes
Hon. John Hart, minister of finance
is protecting the rights of some 550
minors and other workmen, who are
employed by the Pacific Coast Coal
Minos, Limited, and has secured
judgements on their liens against the
company, to an aggregate of $71,328.71.
Under these judgements the sale of
the property was some time ago
authorised by the courts and is to take
place on November 1st, and the very
valuable Morden and Siuuiash proper-
tics of the big coal company will be
put up for sale to satisfy the claims of
the lion holders.
The company is a delinquent tax
payer on its provincial taxes, and the
properties mentioned wore to be put
up for sale on October 12th, next. As
the rights of the lein-holders might be
adversely affected if the tax sale were
to bo hold prior to tho sale ordered by
the court, and as there is no authority
for withholding any delinquent property from tax sale, Hon. Mr. Hart has
instructed the collector at Nanaimo to
hold tho sale on December 1st, instead
of October 12th.
A judgement and execution for $4500
obtained by the Workmen's Compensation Board is also protected by this

We're starting a cat ranch in California with 10,000 cats.

The cat skins will sell for 30 cents

We figure on a net profit of $10,000

We will start a rat ranch next door

Now, what shall we feed the rats?
We will feed the rats tho carcasses

Now get this:

as much chance to make money as the
