Sunset Produces
Spectacular High
Grade Ore
The Keystone Mining, Co. who
have a bond on the Sunset property
on Roundy Creek, are now prepared for an active programme of
development work. The trail from
tidewater has been repaired and
the construction of the oamp is
now practically completed. Thirty
feet of tunnel work has already
been    driven. Mr.    C.    H.
Ripley who is in charge of part
of the work was in town during
the week. He brought down thirty-
five pounds of high grade ore
among which was a magnificent
specimen of silver ore, containing
large quantities of native silver.
The ore was shipped to the head
office of the company at Seattle.
Mr. Ripley is of the opinion that
in the Sunset they have a property
which will ultimately develop into
a first-class shipping mine
* The Sunset property comprises
seven claims, and lie at an elevation
of 2300 feet. It is only 1. miles
from tidewater in an air line.
•*T_hould the property equal expectations, the cost of shipping ore
would be very small.
Vincent Property
Looks Promising
The Vincent property, which is
situated six miles up the Kitsault
valley is looking good underdevelopment work, states Mr. J. Peacock,
the owner, who was in Alice Arm
during the week.
During the summer. Jim has
driven 140 feet of tunnel. Twenty
two feet of this work was done in
the upper tunnel, which is now
190 feet in length. A lower tunnel
68 feet in length was also driven,
and the ore ledge was struck at
a depth of 100 feet.
The ore consists of about nine
inches of nice galena and zinc ore,
and two feet of quartz carrying
values, samples of which will be
shortly assayed.
Jim is one of the type of prospectors, who, when they have acquired
a promising property, do not believe in letting that property lie
idle, but are going to dig and develop it, that is the spirit that
makes mining camps, and eventually will put Alice Arm where it
belongs

x All Star Ball
Play Alice Arm
After Game Fight Alice Arm Lose
On Sunday, the Anyox All Star
baseball team made a trip to Alice
Arm to try conclusions with the
local nine. They came, they saw,
they conquered, and perhaps, with
that we should close, but	
The visitors evidently were not
relying on the help of the goddess
of luck to win the game, for every
member of the team was a veteran
of the game, a real All Star team,
the idols of Anyox Baseball fans,
and the victors of such proud and
haughty teams as Ketchikan and
Prince Rupert.
Against this constellation of * * *
the local sluggers put up a game
fight, but the breaks went against
them, and for them 'twas goodnight. At the end of the ninth,
the visitors score was somewhere
in the teens, aud the home team
drew a trey.
The game was brimming with
spetacular plays. Bud Sheen, the
star batter for the Elks, drove the
pill somewhere in the vicinity of
Silver City, and cantered round
the bases for a home run. "'Red"
Fitzpatrick, ou the mound added
another wreath of laurels to his
crown. For picking a ball out of
the sky after it had hovered around
our neighbour Mars, the prize of
the season goes to C. Warner,
Geo. Bruggy as usual, gathered in
a few high one's, but that's like
picking apples to George
All the Anyox team played fine
ball and played a snappy game
throughout.
The teams were:

Smith, c, F. Brown, s.s., A. Sin

The first of a series of dances to
be staged by the B. P. O. Elks this
winter, was held iu the Elks' Hall,

Alice Arm Resident
Returns With Bride
A quiet wedding was solemnized

H. Murneen of Tacoma, Washington, became the bride of H. L.
Burmeister, whose home is in

of Alice Arm, being mine superintendent at the Toric, for the
Homestake Mining Co. The
ceremony was performed by Rev.
Grant.
The bride arrived in Prince
Rupert on Wednesday, and after
the marriage, the happy couple
proceeded to Alice Arm: On their
arrival hero a number of friends
of the groom were on the wharf to
extend congratulations.
In the evening a dance was held
in their honor at the Coliseum, at
which a large number were present.
A bouquet of flowers was presented to the bride by Miss Nettie
Hogburg. Mr. Burmeister, who

Local Ore Exhibits
Win First Prizes
Two first prizes were awarded this
district for best collection of ore at
the Prince Rupert exhibition which
opened this week.
The Granby Consolidated Mining
Smelting and Power Co. carried
off first prize for best collection of
copper ore dispayed by a shipping
mine.
Angus McLeod of Alice Arm won
the first prize for the best collection of copper-silver ore. This ore
came from the Basin property
which is situated in the upper
Kitsault country.
This district did extremely well
considering the small number of
samples sent. Next year, perhaps,
we will be able to send a bigger
dispay. and show people outside
what we really possess in the way
of mineral wealth.

The outdoor sporting season in
Anyox has now been practically
brought to a close, and a very successful season it has been from all
points of view. The teams. comprising the Baseball League have
staged some wonderful games, and
played good ball throughout the
season in their struggle to gain
possession of the coveted cup.
The fans have had a good run for
their money and everybody is
satisfied. The football teams have
also been in the limelight, and the
game is proving more popular each
year, as is evidenced by the increasing crowds that attend the
games. The Tennis Club is
another organization that has had,
perhaps, its most successful season
in the history of the camp, and the
courts have been well patronized,
proving that the money expended
on the improvement of the courts
has been a good investment.
Rich Ore Ledge
On Tennis Court
While clearing for a tennis court
for employees at the Bell mine,
Beaverdale oamp, the other day a
rich vein of silver ore was struok
and a yield of at least $50,000 has
already been practically recovered,
P. B. Freeland, resident engineer,
who has returned from the scene,
states that the ore run 499 ounces
of silver to the ton, besides having
other mineral values. The lead has
been opened for fifty feet and two
cars of ore have been shipped and
there is apparently at least another
two cars available.
The Bell mine is owned by Duncan Mcintosh, and has already
shipped much high grade.—Grand
Forks Gazette.

Canadian  Water  Powers
During the summer the Baseball
Club sent a team to Ketchikan, and
games have also been played with
Alice Arm. The Tennis Club
played a tournament at home, in
which Alice Arm and Stewart
participated, and later, a similar
tournament waa held at Stewart.
The value of these inter-town
games cannot be over estimated,
they give a chance to let our
neighbours view our town and we
theirs, and it fosters a spirit of
understanding and fraternity that
cannot be obtained in any other
manner. Contests in the sporting
field should be encouraged to. the
limit.
The greatest handicap, however,
to inter-town games is the drain on
the exchequer of the organization
to which the club belongs. In
this respect, Anyox is extremely
fortunate in having all sports organized by such an institution as
the Community League, who can
take care of any reasonable ex-

however, which even the Community League can not exceed, or if
they did there would shortly be no

of Anyox, both indoor and outdoor, adults and children, would
be in chaos, and to a large extent
disappear. The officers of the

they deserve all support possible.

production to the end of 1923 show
An Aggregate Value of $810,722,782
The substantial progress of the Mining Industry in this Province is strikingly exhibited in the following
figures, which show the value of production for successive five-year periods:  For all years to 1895, inclusive,
$94,547,241; for five years, 1896-1900, $57,607,967; forfiveyears, 1901-1905, $96,507,968; forfiveyears, 1906

Production During last ten years, $350,288,892
Lode-mining has only been in progress for about 33 years, and not 20 per cent of the Province has been
even prospected; 300,000 square miles of unexplored mineral bearing land are open for prospecting.
The Mining Laws of this Province are more liberal and the fees lower than those of any other Province
in the Dominion, or any Colony in the British Empire.
Mineral locations are granted to discoverers for nominal fees.
Absolute Titles are obtained by developing such properties, security of which is guaranteed by
Crown Grants.

Scarcity of Food Causes
| Birds To Go South
Scarcity of insects, owing to the
approach-of winter, and not cold
weather, oauses birds to start
south when the frosts arrive, according to" a western scientist.
Seied or flesh eating fowl, unaffected
by the -lack" of bugs, survive all
year as far north as the Artie
Circle. While migrations are
largely determined by the food
supply, it is believed that habits*,
inherited from the glacial ages
paVtly influence some species. The
tern makes a continuous 11,000
mile flight between the polar
regions of the north and south,

Tenders To Called
One of the most important government projects ever undertaken by the
Oliver administration is'the'completing of the Transprovincial -Highway
-between Hope and the interior. Hon.
W. H. Sutherland, minister of public
works, announces that tenders will
be called tor this work within.four
weeks, while, the bidders will have
pctober to look over plans and
prepare their'estimates. When the
Legislature meets lute in October the
tenders will have been decided upon
and the House will be asked to vote
the necessory money. The-link will
cost about $1,000,000, with an
additional ,$250,000 required for the
big steel bridge across the: Fraser
River at Spimum. The governuient
plans to carry on some of the work
this winter. If unemployment con-
ditionscan berelieved in that manuer.
Every section of British Columbia
will prof it through the completion of
the Transprovincial Highway. The
road will provide a inain artery across
the province, linking up practically
all districts with the main Trans-
Canada highway:;*-Returns through
