The eighth annual Flag and
Children's day sponsored by Anyox
Lodge No. 47 B. P. O. Elks and
held at the Ball Grounds on Wednesday, again clearly demonstrated
that as entertainers, especially to
the kiddies the Brother Bills of
Anyox are second to none.
All the juvenile population of the
town were assembled at the Elks'
Hall, where they were given paper
hats, and large balloons. They
then marched to the ball grounds
where Bro. Ed. Ashton gave a very
instructive address on the flag and
all that it stands for.
Everything was done in order to
give the children a real good time,
eats and drinks that tickle the
juvenile palate being distributed
with a lavish hand.
A large crowd thronged the
grounds throughout the afternoon,
enjoying the sports.
Following are the winners of the
field sports:

was the greasy pig. Each boy had
to catch the pig in the pen and put
it in the box in 2 minutes. The
prize for this was the pig and was
won by Sidney Brown who put the
pig in, in 10 seconds.
One of the finest ore displays
that has been sent out to date was
shipped on Monday from Alice Arm.
It was destined for the Vancouver
and New Westminster exhibitions,
where it will be admired by thousands of visitors, including a large
proportion of people interested in
mining from an investing point of
Following the two exhibitions the
ores will be taken over by the Vancouver branch of the British Columbia Chamber of Mines. The display
was assembled and shipped by the
Alice Arm branch of the Chamber
of Mines. The expenditure of considerable time was necessary in
order to complete the work of
gathering and shipping and great
credit is due those responsible.
Twenty-six mining properties of
the district are represented, which
are as follows:
North Star, Vanguard, The

Drastic Cut Made in
School Tax at Annual
The annual meeting of the Alice
Arm School Board did not as usual
draw a very large crowd, but those
who did attend found that several
important items required discussion
and a decision made. J. A. Anderson presided.
Mr. Al. Falconer's term of office
as secretary expiring it was neceS'
sary that another appointment be
made. In view of the efficient
manner in which the secretary bad
carried out his duties during the
past three years he was requested
to fill the office again and complied
with the request.
Mrs. L. O'Connor was appointed
auditor in place of Mrs. W. M.
Cummings who asked to be relieved.
Considerable discussion followed
the fixing of the school tax for the
coming year. It was finally decided
to cut the assessment to $750.00
in place of the $1,350.00 of last
year. A surplus of nearly $800.00
is available at the bank and this
will be drawn upon to provide the
deficiency. The government grant
of $580.00 towards the teacher's
salary remains the same as last
year. The town supplying the
balance, which is $620.00.
On Monday evening the Mine
and Elks teams played another
lively game of baseball, the Elks
putting over a win with a score of
8-5. The Elks added Jack Cody to
their ranks for this game. The
Mine played Peele instead of Kob-
erts- The line-up was: Elks,
Lazorek, Cody, Bartmann, Sheen,
Chenoski, McDougall, Ballentyne,
Evans, Wilson. Mine, Cook, McLennan, Ferguson, Anderson,
Brown, Stewart, Peele, Comozzi,
On Saturday the postponed
game between the Mine and Elks
was played. The Miners won with
the score 8-4. The winners had a
strong in-field team, while the
Elks were not so strong iu this
respect. The line-up was: Mine,
Cook, McLennan, Ferguson,
Anderson, Brown, Stewart,
Roberts, Comozzi, and Cutler.
Elks, Ballentyne, Chenoski, Bartmann, Evans, Lazorek, McDougall

On Thursday evening, July 26th.
the Mine and Concentrator teams,
who played to a draw on the previous game, repealed the performance with a score of 5 all at the
inning. Two
extra innings w<jre played and the
tie was broken when the Mine got
three runs in the ninth inning,
making the soore 8-5 in favor of
the Mine. The line-up was: Mine,

Lots of Fun and Fine
Weather at Alice
Arm Picnic
Fine weather, a large and happy
throng of children and adults combined to make the Sunday School
picnic at Campers Point on Saturday among the best yet held.
In addition to local residents a
large number of Anyox visitors
availed themselves of the opportunity of spending a day outdoors.
At 10 a.m. the launch Northern
Cross in charge of Rev. Jennings
commenced transporting the people
from the government wharf and
SilverCity, and continued until 1p.m.
Lunch was served at 12.30 after
which races were indulged in,
everyone taking part from the small
tots to the men and women. The
bean guessing prize was captured
by J. Dunn of Anyox, whose guess
was 1343, the number in the jar
being 1340.
Various games were played following the races, and bathing on the
sandy beach was also enjoyed. Ten
gallons of ice cream disappeared
during the afternoon.
Before the return journey home
another sumptous repast was prepared by the ladies, and the last
boatload of tired but happy celebrants reached the wharf shortly
after 8 p.m.
Great credit is due the ladies of
Alice Arm and also Anyox visitors
for the splendid refreshments provided, and praise is also due Rev.
Jennings for the admirable arrangements made in regard to transportation problems.

No Decision Made Yet
Regarding Mining
We have not yet reached a decision in regard to our mining operations in the Alice Arm district,
stated Col. Victor Spencer, who, in
company with H. E. Wilmont,
mining engineer, left on Monday
for Vancouver, after examining
a considerable number of mining
properties in the district. Col.
Spencer, however, expected that
undoubtedly, a decision would be
reached shortly.
While in the district Col. Spencer and Mr. Wilmont examined the
zinc properties on McGrath mountain and al9o the Silver Cord property, on which considerable development work has been done.
They also examined the Dolly
Varden, Wolf, Moose, Silver Hoard
Chance and Climax, on which they
had secured options.
Should they decide to take over
and operate the Dolly Varden and
adjacent properties it would mean
a considerable outlay of capital.
The Dolly Varden railway would
necessitate considerable expenditure of money in order to carry
heavy traffic, and the purchase of
mining properties, development
work, mill construction, and the
installation of hydro-electric power
plant would total to a large
Until the total expenditure has
been tabulated, and the necessary
amount forthcoming, a statement
in regard to future plans could not
be made. Should Col. Spencer and
associates decide to operate in the
Upper Kitsault country it will
mean a big payroll and a permanent one for the possibilities of this
■ich district are well known, The
Toric has proved that large ore
bodies can be expected and diamond drilling on the Wolf and
underground work on the Moose
and Tiger have added much valuable knowledge regarding the ore
bodies of this section.
If Col. Spencer and associates
decide to develop the zinc ore bodies
on McGrath mountain, it would
also mean a large payroll, for it is
the opinion of mining engineers
that whoever operates these properties will do so on a large scale,
and that a concentrating mill will
be built at the foot of the hill,
which will be within a mile of
tidewater, an asset that is not
being overlooked by mining companies.
The government road gang that
has been working on the construction of the Toric road came down
on Tuesday, the work being

The fostering of Canada's export trade is the aim of Hon. James
Malcolm, Minister of the Trade
and Commerce Department. With
this end in view he has authorized
publication of several striking advertisements in magazines and
newspapers throughout the Dominion. The object of these advertisements is to bring home to Canadians the advantages accrued from
building up a substantial export
trade. During the late war when
orders for foodstuffs and manufactured goods poured in from almost
every European country Canada
realized the immense possibilities of
her export trade and since that
time she has put her shoulder to
the wheel, and there has been no
turning back. Canada's export
trade is increasing steadily each
year, and at the present time it is
much the largest per capita
of any country in the world. In
the last fiscal year ending March
31 st. the Dominion's total exports
were valued at more than a billion
and a quarter dollars, or to be exact
$1,250,456,297. This represents
an export trade of more than $130
for every man, woman and child
in Canada. At the beginning of
the present century Canada's export trade amounted to less than
200 million dollars. To show the
vast increase made in the last few
years in manufactured articles it is
shown that Canada is exporting
as much today as the total output
of every factory in the Dominion
twenty-eight years ago. These
figures give some idea of the immense increase in the export business. While home markets are
desirable and are the first consideration, foreign markets are vital for
increased prosperity. Every bushel
of wheat, box of apples or automobile shipped abroad means increased wealth for the Dominion.
This increase of wealth means the
expansion of our industries and
sufficient available capital for the
development of our natural resources, such as mining, which is now
commencing to attract Dominion
wide notice, the expansion of
which will add considerably in
increasing our export business.
Is there any luck in mining?
The majority of mining companies
and prospectors are of the opinion
that luck does not enter into a
successful mining venture. They
state that they are looking for
something good and when it comes
then hopes are realized. The editor of the Canadian Mining World,
however, discounts this theory,
and in a recent issue he sets forth J
Body of Stewart Miner
Found; Was Lost in
Portland Canal News
The body of that sturdy and in-
dominitable prospector and miner
William Killier, who lost his life in
a snowslide on the morning of
December 17th. last, while he was
on his way up the north fork of the
Marmot river to the Porter Idaho
property, was found last Sunday
evening near the forks of the river
by Thos. Kirkpatrick, steel sharpener for the company at angle
station No. 1 of the tram line now
being built. According to the evidence given at the coroner's inquest
by Kirkpatrick, he had gone to the
river bank earlier in the evening for
a bucket of water and a twig knock- j
ed his hat oft, which he did not
bother about at the time but returned later to retrieve, when he saw
the body lying on a bar. He notified the foreman, Jack Gillis, who
had the body taken out on the bank
Herb Charlton, who had but recently found Fillier's hat, telephoned
Constable Potterton, who had the
body brought to Stewart.
his views on the matter as follows:
"The rediscoverer or resurrector
of the great Premier mine in the
Portland Canal district of British
Columbia, recently recounted the
story of that find in the Sunday
edition of a Spokane daily paper.
Near the end of an interesting
story he says, "There is no such
thing as luck in mining." Honestly, that made us gasp.
"Earlier iu the tale he admitted
he was not sure he was right, but
felt confident he had a good
"chance". Then he told the world
that the first round of holes directed by him broke into thirty feet of
eighty-five dollar ore; that the first
round in a second cross-cut exposed
three hundred dollar ore, leading
to an eighty foot width of fifty-five
dollar ore and other bodies that ran
up to one thousand dollars a ton,
and from which a small shipment
returned over one hundred thousand dollars at the Smelter.
"Somehow we cannot reconcile
these fortuitious events with the
finality that there is no luck in
mining. Maybe our mental definition of the word is incorrect, but
as we see it, it was downright, unadulterated luck, brought about by
a miner's "hunch", that in this case
may almost look like pre-vision.
Many a prospector and miner has
had a "hunch before now, but apparently about one in a million
finds a thonsand-dollar ore.
"As Mr. R. K. Neill, the rediscoverer says, one must investigate
carefully and systematically before
going ahead. Quite true, but
until we humans are given the
power to look into the earth, a
real, allopathic dose of luck is
necessary to convert even tlie most
careful investigation into millions.
If Mr. Neill had said that investigation, plus luck, was essential to
mining success, we could have
understood and endorsed his words.
As it is, we hate to put ouropinion
against experience such as his, but
nevertheless feel that the greatest
of all elements in mining is luck—
just plain, bull headed luck—of
course, added to common, horse
sense."—Canadian Mining World.

New Tunnel for Bay-
View at Stewart
Portland Csnal News
H. W. Heidman, consulting engineer for the Bayview Mining
Company, returned from the south
last Saturday for the purpose of
starting development. During the
week Mr. Heidman has made a
thorough examination of* the situation and he expresses himself as
being well satisfied with the possibilities, and as a result is letting a
contract in the very near future for
200 feet of drift on what is known
as the lower showing, being on the
"Lucille" vein, at an elevation of
2950 feet and striking up the hill
north 55 west, and which, in his
opinion, is a very strong vein. The
work which he contemplates will
give a depth of about 150 feet. In
the extension of this vein it is close
to the United Empire ground.
The matter of tram construction
on the Bayview property, in his
opinion, will be left iu abeyance,
pending results of the development
work now to be commenced. This
vein is one of several on the Bay-
view property which are noted for
their high silver values. Mr. Heidman said that he would have been
here sooner but he is in charge of
the Slocan Arlington situation near
Slocan City, which is reaching a
very interesting stage. As soon as
work is well under way here, Mr.
Heidman, dividing his time between the two properties, will return to Slocan City for a   short

with its luxurious decorations Lower^'The Duchess of Bedford" as she appeared when coming up the St. Lawrence River.
Inset—Capt. H.  Slbbons, commander of ths "Duchess of Bedford."
PROOF that the St. Lawrence route ia rapidly increasing in popularity and that an era of continued prosperity is predicted for her ports, is shown
by the addition of four new cabin class liners of the
new "Duchess" type to the Atlantic fleet of the
Canadian Pacific.
The Duchess of Bedford, leader of this quartette
of the largest liners to Montreal, arrived in that port
at 8.45 p.m. June 8th, having completed her maiden
voyage in exactly seven days after leaving Liverpool.
The liner is over 20,000 tons gross register, is oil
burning, two-funnelled, and measures 600 feet in
length and 75 feet in width. She will carry Cabin
Class, Tourist Third Cabin, and Third Class passengers. In each clau broad deck space is available,
•nd accommodation is far superior to more expensive
quarters on Atlantic linen of not long ago. The three
sister ships of the Dnchess of Bedford, now under
construction in the shipbuilding yards of the Clyde,
are the Duchess of Atholl, Duchess of Cornwall, and
Duchess of Richmond.
•The discoveries of radio engineers have aided in
making the Duchess of Bedford an outstanding marine  personality.    For  instance,  while  the  ship's
orchestra is playing in the Cabin Dining Room the
music is relayed by means of microphones and amplifiers to the Tourist Third Cabin and Third Class
Lounges and decks. Loud-speakers also simplify the
transmission of orders to the forecastle, crow's nest,
and docking-bridge.
Other interesting facts about the construction of
the Duchess of Bedford are that the twin propellers
weigh 16% tons each, and the 186 foot steel shafts
connecting them with the powerful turbine engines
weigh about 108 tons. Nearly two million rivets were
used in the ship, totalling 1,000 tons in themselves,
some of the plates having as many as 660 rivets each.
The advent of the "Duchesses" greatly increases
the passenger and freight services maintained by the
Canadian Pacific on the St. Lawrence route. The
schedule of passenger sailings had already been increased this summer by speeding the "turn about" of
the Empresses from a four-weekly basis to meet the
expected expansion of traffic. The "Beaver" class of
ships, newcomers to the St. Lawrence also, have been1
placed by the Canadian Pacific on an exclusively
freight service. They run regularly between Montreal
and London and continental ports* making almost as
good time as the passenger liners. ALICE ABM AND  ANYOX  HERALD,  Friday,    August  3    1928

talking of a merger of properties in
the southwest, particularly Arizona,
forming a concern which would
rank among the foremost producers.
United Verde Extension Mining
Co., Phelps-Dodge Corporation,
Calumet & Arizona Mining Co.,
and Magma Copper Co., are mentioned in the proposed alignment,
the total market value of these
companies is approximately $170,-
000,000. Last year they produced
over 300,000,000 pounds of copper.
While none of the bankers interested would say that the merger is
assured, it was said that considerable progress has been made over
the past few months. United Verde
has been brought into the plan since
its recent negotiations to sell its
properties to the Newmont Mining
Co. failed.
