Why the North   Star
Property Belongs to
Original Owners
Last week we published a letter
from Mr. 0. Evindson, which stated that the North Star property
does not belong to Mr. Eresch, of
Kansas, but still remains the property of himself and associates, who
were the original stakers and who
also staked the Dolly Varden
properly.
The North Star joins the Dolly
Varden on the north-east. Considerable development work has been
done and the property is one of the
most promising in the district.
Following is an outline of the
history of the property:
Mr. M. P. Olson, late of Alice
Arm, and now of Vancouver, was
the first to get an option on the
North Star, which he secured from
Gustaf Pearson. On this option
he paid down $500. The option,
however, lapsed, and Olsen now
claims commission from that $500.
After his option with Pearson
dropped, he got Messrs. J. McAleenan and J. Zarrelli interested
and a new deal was made. On
this deal Olsen was to receive ten
per cent, commission from, the
owners, and this commission was
payed to Olson on all payments
\ nade by McAleenan. Olson in
turn paid his commission back to
McAleenan so that he could retain
a ten per cent, interest in -the
property. McAleenan and Zarelli
found it difficult to carry out their
option, and were obliged to drop
the property. The North Star
was then up for sale by the original owners, and an offer was made
by Mr. Ereaph. of Kansas, which
was accepted and a payment made.
Mr. Olson then claimed commission oil the new deal and aotion was
taken to recover same, also commission on ore shipped from the
property, by Mr. McAleenan.
This action was dimissed with
costs. Application to be allowed
to appeal this action in forma
pauperis was disallowed by the
court. The oase was then taken
to the appeal court aud again it
was dismissed. Olson has now
appealed to Ottawa.
Tragic  Death  of Stewart
High School Boy
The many friends in the north
of Mr. and Mrs; Angus McLeod of
Stewart, will be shocked to learn
of the death of their only son,
Kingsley MoLeod, who died on
Thursday morning at the early
age of 15 years.
Deceased was a High School
student, and attended school on
Monday. He was taken sick that
day and died on Thursday, the
cause of death being pnemonia.
Dr. Kergin, of Prince Rupert,
who had been telegraphed for,
readied Stewart shortly after the
death occurred.
The body was shipped south on
Thursday, for burial at Vanoouver.
Basketball Dance Held
At Anyox
Those who were privileged to
attend the dance given by the
Ariyox Basketball League, in the
Gymnasium on Monday evening,
Maroh 24th. cannot but express
themselves in a praiseworthy manner for the remarkable success of
the evening.
This dance, the proceeds of which
are to furnish prizes for the
winning Basketball teams, stands
out as .being one of the most
pleasant entertainments provided
during the winter months.
The orchestra, consisting of
Messrs. Cole, piano; White, violin;
and Ed. Waterman, drums, situated on the centre of the dance floor,
excelled themselves, much to the
delight of those fond of tripping the
light fantastic.
Dancing was indulged in from
9 o'clock until 2 a.m. with a brief
interval during which time dainty
refreshments were served.
Much credit is due to the ladies
who busied themselves and made
the evening a real pleasure to
everyone present.
, The committee in charge were:
Mesdames J. Cody, H. Chapman,
and Wenrrerstromraiid-the Misses
J. Moffat and Annie Scott, also
secretary of the Basketball association, Crawford. Mr. F. Brown
acted as master of ceremonies.
Prominent Masons Visit
Anyox
With the arrival of the S. S.
Prince George, on Thursday evening, last week, about sixty passengers appeared on deck, anxiously
waiting to set foot on Anyox soil.
Most of them were accompanying
the Rt. Wor. Bro. Geo. H. Munro,
District Deputy Grand Master of
Masonic Order of Distriot 11. The
party were welcomed at the boat
on their arrival by a delegation of
members of Enoch Lodge, who,
together with the guests proceeded
to the Lodge Room. After the
ceremony, refreshments were served in the Elks' Dugout, where a
sumptous supper was enjoyed,
toasts given and speeches made.
Included in the party, were
Hon. A. M. Manson, Attorney-
General, Messrs. C. H. Onne, C.
Wakefield, Amerioan Consul; F.
F. Henderson, G. Woodland, Dr.
Kergin, Rev. Dr, Grant.
The big tide flats, whioh comprise a large part of the waterfront
at Alice Arm, from, all appearances
will comprise one big' booming
ground this year. Three railroads
will be busy dumping logs into the
water, and the waterfront this
year will be one of great activity.
Mr. and Mrs. MoLeod have resided in Stewart since 1910. Mr.
MoLeod was in Alioe Arm iu 1912
when he did some trail work for
the government.
Logging Construction
Work Around Alice Arm
Preparation work at the logging
camps of the Granby Co: is still
proceeding. The dining room at
the oamp on the Kitsault flats is
nearing completion. A floating
pile-driver has been engaged during
the week driving piles for the
booming ground on the waterfront, opposite the Police Station.
This work, it is expeoted, will be
finished today. The driver will
then be moved to the east side of
the Kitsault river, and will commence driving piles for the railway
trestle. The length of trestle to be
driven is 1300 feet. On the completion of this work piles will be
driven for a booming ground.
The hauling of lumber for the
construction of the camp up the
Dolly Varden railway, commenced
yesterday, the road now being dear
for the operation of locomotives.
Plenty of labor is available in
town at the present time, and no
more labor will be required here
until the different camps are in a
position to operate to capacity,
which will probably not be for
another month.
Farewell Party Given at
Anyox
The Anglican Church Ladies
Aid on Tuesday evening, March
25th, gave a farewell party in
honor of Mrs. A. Jenkinson, at the
home of Mrs. W. F. Eve.
About twenty persons were
present during the evening, who
enjoyed themselves playing bridge,
and later partaking of the delicacies
which played a prominent part in
the evening's entertainment.
After supper, a presentation was
made to Mrs. Jenkinson on behalf
of the Ladies' Aid in token of her
valuable services aud "the high
esteem in which she has been held
by all who know her, both in
Church work and social circles.
Mr. aud Mrs. Jenkinson and son
will be leaving Anyox for Vancouver, on Thursday, April 3rd. and
expect to make their home in the
vicinity of that oity.
Famous Musician Leaves Anyox
Mr. George Liddell, the well
known violinist who has been
residing at Anyox during the past
two years, received an enthusiastic
farewell from the Moose Fraternity
at their Lodge Room in the
Catholic Hall, prior to his departure on Thursday night.
The Moose orchestra was present
and after several selections had
been played, Mr. F. D. Rice, who
acted as chairman, in a few well
ohosen words voiced the sentiments
of the audience, that Mr. Liddell
would, ere long, be returning to
Anyox. To which the latter suit--
ably responded.
Messrs. H. Ballion, F.D.Rice,
and R. Armour, of Anyox spent
the week-end insepecting the
Esperanza property, and locating
a site for an aerial tramway.
Aerial Tramway For
Esperanza Mine
The Esperanza Mine Co. have
decided to instal an aerial tramway at the mine at the earliest
possible date. Survey work has
been completed. The tram will
run from the mine to the Dolly
Varden railway tracks, and the
distance will be about 1600 feet.
A new ore oar has arrived for
the mine and will be taken up the
hill as soon as possible.
Mining of ore is still being
oarried along at the mine and the
property is looking as good as
ever.

Down Comes
The Axe
The federal government, in
response to the Dominion-wide
pleas of the -people, have
commenced to swing the axe in
regard to curtailing of expenditure,
and it is hoped that the good work
commenced will be carried on
vigorously, until a substantial reduction of taxation is accomplished.
There have been a lot of different
departments created by the federal
government during the past ten
years, with which we can very
well get along without, until we
have a larger population to support
them. It is high time that the
people realized that from their
pockets comes the money for
public works undertaken by the
government. It is also time that
the people took a greater interest
in federal politics, especially in the
western part of the Dominion.
Boosting Gets Results
It is the duty of everyone to
boost their own town and community, for boosting really does get
results. Vancouver boosted itself
for grain elevators and have got
them. It has boosted its scenery
and climate and got the tourists.
It has boosted its harbor facilities
and got the ships. Boosting is not
necessarily a misrepresentation of
facts, but advertising your advantages and natural wealth, much as
a live merchant advertises his
wares. We have, in the Alice
Arm district one of the richest
mineral areas in the world. This
wealth is buried in the ground and
there it will remain unless we do
some boosting, and when we say
boosting we mean getting out and
rustling. The world can get along
without Alice Arm ores, but we
can not get along without the rest
of the world.
Educate the Child
A good education is necessary
to every child, and this  fact is
B. G/s Growth in Ten
Years, 34 Per Cent
We have every reason to be
encouraged when we compare the
growth of this province with the
other provinces of Canada and the*
Pacific Coast states. During the ten
years ending 1921 our rate of increase was 34 per cent, exceeded by
two provinces only, Alberta with
57 percent, and Saskatchewan with
54 per cent.    The U. S. census of
1920 showed that since 1910 the
rate of increase for the state of
Washington was 19 per cent.
Oregon 16 per cent, and much-
advertised California 44 per cent.
So we have not done so badly after
all. From 1900 to 1920, the increase was: Washington, 120 per
cent; Oregon,.  63 per cent: Calif
oniia, 150 per cent.   From 1901 to
1921 the increase for British Columbia was 194 per cent, more than
three times the rate of increase in
California.
The rapid depletion of the world's
lead supplies, with the failure to
discover new ore bodies, is likely to
create a lead famine and to force
the development of the complex lead
-sulphur-oopper-ziiic ores, whose
treatment has long been a metallurgical problem, state investigators of the State School of Mines*
University of Utah, and the Federal Department of the Interior in
Bulletin 14. just issued by the first-
named institution. The whole
world's future supply of lead, it is
asserted, lies tied up in these
complex ores, of which the Rocky
Mountain district has more than
its share

Canada's   Gold   Production
Increasing
Canada exported gold during
January last to the value of
$2,471,920. an enormous, increase
over the preceding month and over
January, 1923. The figures for
these months were: December,
1923, $1,881,450; January, 1923,
1396,788.
These figures include the value
of all gold bullion, obtained directly
from mining operations, nuggets
and dust and gold bearing quartz.
The whole quantity went last
month to the United States.
The codfish lays a million eggs.
While the helpful hen lays one
But the codfish does not cackle
To tell what she has done
And so we scorn the codfish coy,
But the helpful hen we prize
,  Which indicates to thoughtful minds
It pays to advertise
becoming more pronounced every
year. No child should be allowed
to have an indifferent education,
for a child starting out in the world
to earn a living will find himself
severely handicapped by having a
poor education. The displace*
ment of hand labor for mechanical
appliances in the industrial world
demands a fair education and for
those who climb to the top a first
class education is necessary. Give
the child the best education possible, so that he will not be handicapped in any effort he makes for
advancement throughout his life.

Basketball Games
at Anyox
Two games were staged at the
Gym. on Friday last. The Colts
and the Shamrocks of the Midget
League, tangled in the first game,
while the second encounter on the
programme brought together the
Tuxis and the Rovers.
The Colts took revenge for their
previous defeats at the hands of the
Shamrocks and emerged victorious
by ths soore of 11 to 10. The play
was fust throughout. Bob Moffatt
was the scoring star for the Colts,
while Cy. McDonald was the outstanding star for the losers.
The Rovers took the Tuxis into
oamp in the second game by the
score of 34 to 30. The game was
very closely contested all the way,
with nothing to choose from
between the two teams. All the
players worked hard, the Rovers
having the slight edge in combination. .
The teams were:
Rovers: N. Ballion, H. Ballion,
Harris, Gordon and Crawford.
Tuxis: Dean, Moore, Moffatt,
Swanson aud Clay.
The local Gym. was the scene of
the steller basketball game of the
season, on Thursday evening, when
the Smelter team, champions of the
An j ox senior league, met and were
defeated by the Sons of Canada,
stars of the Prince Rupert league,
in a game which was billed for the
championship of northern B. C.
It was a close game from the start
till the final whistle blew. The score
was Rupert 31 Anyox 30.
Balfour was the scoring'star for
the Rupert quintette, while York
was easily the star for the local
team. The Smelter team were
severely handicapped by having to
play the end wall as out of play,

Baseball  Players Getting
Restless
Baseball is all the talk with the
boys these days, and much speculation is going ou as to how many
teams there will be in the league
this season. To our knowledge
there will be three of last year's
teams namely, the Smelter, Mine,
and Elks. There is rather a scarcity of players in town at present,
but in the course of a month some
new players should come to light,
TO  THE  SHOVEL
Good old muck-stick, many a day
I've pushed you through the dirt;
Shovelling off the over-lay,
While sweat soaked through my
shirt.
While thus employed, I often  think
And wonder why it's true;
.That every peanut-headed gink
Turns up his nose at you,
And fears that he could not retain
His precious (?) social station,
Nor ever use his bulging brain
And wondrous education
If he but took you in his hand,
And labored in a ditch
To bring some water on the land
That makes the nation rich:
Or built a highway through the wild;
Or opened up a mine.
Oh, no!—for collar undefiled
The peannt-brained will dine.
Old muck-stick, if 'twere not for you
We'd not be civilized—
Of all the tools we use, but few
Should be more highly prized.
Without you all of us would be
Still roosting in the trees,
Exposed to beast, and bird, and flea,
And Winter's sbiv'ry breeze.
If peanut brains could only think,
They'd surely call to mind:
When mankind hung on ruin's brink,
You were not left behind.
When   war  broke  out,  and cannon
roared,
And shrapnel fell around,
Old , muck-stick,    then   you   surely
scored,
For to get underground
Was every blessed hero's thought
Xh& muck it fairly flew,
And trench and dugout soon   were
wrought
By heroes and by you.
Old shovel, we have very much, /
, Indeed, to thank yi.m for;
I'm proud to bold you in rny clutch:
Yon really "won the war."
—Donald 0. Simpson
BREVITY
She called her gown a poem
We do not wish to slam;
But judging from its brevity,
It seemed an epigram.
