New Alice Arm Town-
Site Comprises 196
Also Some Acreage
Mr. F. Butterfield, who has been
in charge of subdividing the Indian
Reserve at Alice Arm, completed
his work this week, and with his
assistants, is leaving for the south
on Monday.
The land on the west side of the
Kitsault river, and on which a considerable number of houses are
built, contains 130 town and residential lots. Town lots are those
located on the flats and residential
those on the hillside, north of the
road that crosses the Kitsault river
near the skating rink. These latter
lots are of varying size, and number
about seven. The majority of town
lots on the flats measure 60 feet by
100 feet, but whether they will be
sold as full or half lots is not at
present known.
The land on the east side of the
river, which has been logged off,
comprises 66 town lots, aud approximately 100 acres that has been
subdivided into 23 blocks. These
vary in size from one to ten acres.
The whole subdivision has been
laid out as uniformly as possible.
Corner posts of lots, however, appear in unexpected places, much to
the disgust of residents. Some are
located inside buildings, some on
porches, etc. while others show
only too plainly that several buildings are located in the centre of a
street or lane. Very few buildings
are lucky enough to be occupying
only one lot, the majority straddle
a line, either of a lot, road or lane,
and some of both.
The date of sale of the townsite
is not at present known, but it is
presumed will be early next summer.
Next year promises to be a busy
one, for the majority of Alice Arm
residents moving their buildings to
conform with newly laid out streets.
Children Will Be Rewarded
For Ticket Selling
As a reward to the children for
tlie support given to the Anyox
Community League in the recent
ticket-selling campaigns. The
children are to be the guests of the
League at a Hallowe'en Party on
Wednesday next. Capt. Cameron,
Mr. Oeo. Lace, with some of the
teachers and other altruistic adults
are planning an excellent program.
There will be prizes for costumes
and a good orchestra in attendance.
Skating Will Be Available at
Anyox This Winter
In anticipation of cold weather,
the Community League is preparing the ground at the elementary
school for flooding as a skating
rink at the first advent of frost.

All Sport Players Must Be
Members of League
In view of the expense of providing equipment for League play in
the various sports, the A. C. L. is
going to insist that all who take
part in the games must be members of League in good standing.
At their last meeting the councillors were unanimous for the strict
enforcement of this policy. They
feel, quite rightly, that all who enjoy a privilege should share equally
in its cost.
Don't forget the Girl Guide-
Boy Scout Concert on November 23.
The Loyal Order of Moose will
give a Masquerade Dance on
December 10.
Harvest Festival Held
At Anyox United
On Sunday Oct. 21st. a Harvest
Thanksgiving service was held in
the United Church, the Church
being very tastefully decorated
with fruits, vegetables and autumn
leaves. The soloist was Mrs. J,
Dunn. Rev. J. Dewar spoke from
the words I. Chron. 16 chap. 34
verse (Oh give thanks unto the
Lord for he is good.), placing the
emphasis on the lessons taught us
by God's lesson book the Land
"Life comes from death " "Fruil
comes from labour," "That as we
sow we reap."
The attendance was not so large
as had been hoped owing to the inclemency of the weather.
On the Monday evening following, the Fruits and Vegetables
which had been sent in by friends
in the Fraser Valley were disposed
of by auction. The sale was preceded by a short programme by-
some members of the Sunday
School assisted by Mrs. McRae,
Mrs. Anderson and Mr. Dresser.
The produce was all disposed of
under the able auctioneering pf
Mr. S. Colclough.
Paystreak Carnival Big
With the gross receipts nearly
fifteen hundred dollars, once again
the Community League's appeal
for financial aid for the gym brought
out enthusiastic support. The'
Paystreak fete of Tuesday was well
arranged and well carried out.
The prizes for the wheel of fortune
were good value and the chances
in the lucky drawings equitably
distributed. Great credit is due to
the committee headed by • Chas.
Harmon and the corps of seventy-
five workers who sold tickets, hot
dogs or what-have-you. The Council of the League has invited all
these public-spirited citizens to be
the guests of the League at the
theatre on Tuesday next.
Enjoyable Dance Held
At Alice Arm
One of the snappiest and most
enjoyable dances of the year
waR held at T. W. Falconer's hall on Saturday evening. Everyone that could possibly
attend was there, aud the large
floor provided ample accomodation
for everyone. Several residents of
Camp 8 came down to swell the
numbers, and their presence was
very much appreciated.
The Alice Arm orohestra, composed of Wm. Stephens, piano; Chas.
Hutchinson, saxophone; F. Butter-
field violin; E. Aubusson, traps
and drums, were in tip-top form,
and their superb rendering of the
latest dance music, added greatly
to the evening's enjoyment.
Principal Recent Anyox
Stabbing Affray
Draws 1 Year
Nick Priza, Serbian, who knifed
Louis Rawka, Ukrainan, in the
course of a drunken brawl at Anyox
on the night of Angust 24 last and
who was convicted by the jury of
assault occasioning actual bodily
harm was sentenced to twelve
months' imprisonment at Okalla
with hard labor, dating from the
time of his arrest, at the Supreme
Court Assizes, at Prince Rupert, on
Friday, October 19, by Mr. Justice
D. A. McDonald who stated that
he had thought the case over carefully and had come to the conclusion that the prisoner had already
learned a good lesson and that the
case did not call for the highest
penalty provided.
When His Lordship inquired if
the prisoner had anything to say
why sentence should not be passed
upon him, W. O. Fulton, Priza's
council, expressed the opinion that
the ends of justice did not requir
a severe penalty. He concluded
that accused had been scared and
aggravated and, actually frightened
of the gang of Polanders, had become so excited that he did not
know what he was doing. He
asked the judge to take' these circumstances into consideration in
passing sentence.
Everything Being Lined Up
For Basketball
Basketball will likely be going
strong by the middle of November.
While the lines have been painted
the fixtures are not in place owing
to some debate as to what the exact
nature of the backboard attachments should be. The screening of
the spectators' gallery likewise has
to await the order for wire which
was telegraphed on Thursday.
Prospects for a Ladies' League are
brighter this year. The Mine intend to field a team. One is being
organised at the Beach and the
High School have a host of recruits.
The last-named team is considering
the substitution of gym shorts for
the bloomers of the old style.
Indoor Baseball May be
Winter Sport
J. L. Stewart, A. C. L. Councillor
in charge of sports, reports great
enthusiasm for the creation of an
indoor baseball league this winter.
The Council has approved the purchase of equipment and the painting
of lines on the gym floor. The
Concentrator boys, the Elks' Club,
and the Miners have their plans
almost matured while at the Beach
R. J. Manning and others are promoting the organization of teams.
This is a game well adapted to
play by the ladies and is likely to
attract several women's teams.
The children of school age have, of
course, always been enthusiasts.
Large Cargoes Arrive
From South
The Steamship Griffco, Capt.
McKinnon, of the Coastwise fleet
left for Stewart on Monday, While
in Anyox she discharged 10,000
barrels of fuel oil, 1,100 tons of
coking coal, 120 tons of household
coal, 200 tons of limerock, 80 tons
hydrated lime, and 150 tons of
general freight.
The Steamship Amur, Capt. J. A.
Hunter, commenced to discharge
cargo from the south on Monday.
She had on board for Anyox 1300
tons of coking coal, 125 tons lump
coal, 200 tons of limerock. 13,000
feet of lumber, and 150 tons of
general freight.
Harry Smith Passes
Mr. Harry Smith, a resident of
Alice Ann and formerly a pioneer
business man of Prince Rupert and
Stewart, celebrated his 70th. birthday on Thursday.
Mr. Smith has been a resident of
British Columbia for the past 35
years. He pioneered on Vancouver
Island and when the north was
opened for settlement by the G. T.
P. Railway he was one of the first
of the northern pioneers. Harry
stated on Thursday that he had
never felt better and that he expects
to see another 20 or more winters.
E. Udell, Aylraer Wilson F.Roy-
ston were among the departures on
Saturday for Vancouver.
During the past few months
mining in the Anyox-Alice Arm
district has taken greater strides
than it has for the last decade.
Almost every week it has been
our pleasure to publish reports of
expansion of operations of local
companies, or the formation of new
companies who will enter the field
next spring. The Granby Consolidated Mining, Smelting and
Power Company have announced
a quarterly dividend of $449,998
payable on November 1st. They
are also developing the Bonanza
Mine, and this property will commence pouring a steady stream of
ore into the Anyox concentrating
mill next spring. The Granby
Co. have also optioned 14 claims
adjoining the big Hidden Creek
mine, and are again re-opening the
Granby Point property.
On Hastings Arm, which lies
between Anyox and Alice Arm
the Silver Crest Mining Co. are
developing the Saddle property,
whose rich galena ores have won
the admiration of all who have
seen it. At Alice Arm several
companies have   been   operating

throughout the summer. The
Toric is now firmly established as
a shipping mine, and is a steady
producer of rich concentrates.
The Utility Mining and Financing
Co. are developing the Tiger,
which joins the Toric, with unusual success, and the erection of
a mill next year is already planned.
The Kitsault-Eagle Silver Mines
Ltd. have, during the past summer
located ore on the Eagle. They
have also considerably increased
their ore tonnage on the Silver
Cord, and are now engaged in
driving a 1000 ft. tunnel on the
Sunrise, that will strike the ore at
a depth of 500 feet. The Esperanza Mining Co. have increased
their working force, and will operate throughout the coming winter.
Recent advices state that this property never looked better than it
does at present. Plans are being
formulated to organise a strong
company to operate the Home-
guard Group next summer. This
property is known to carry a large
tonnage of shipping ore. The
Mohawk will also be operated
next year, and the formation of a
company for this purpose is already
being energetically proceeded with.
It is also understood that La Rose
mine will be operated next year.
Negotiations are also proceeding
for the'taking over of several groups
of claims in the Alice Arm district by mining companies. This
district is one of the three biggest
mineral producers of the province.
The Granby Co. assuming the
lion's share, but within a short
time several of the newer companies of the district, will make
their presence felt by increased
production. Mining in the Anyox
Alice Arm district is forging ahead
and the expansion promises to
increase each year, as the vast
mineral wealth becomes more
widely known.
Chamber of Mines Will
Hold Lectures
Following the practice of former
years, the British Columbia Chamber of Minos will institute a lecture
course in mining early in Deoember
at the Board of Trade offices.
Hon. W. A. McKenzie, minister of
mines, will give an introductory
address at the first lecture.
The minister has consented to
permit resident engineers from all
parts of tlie province to participate
in the lectures.
Early in November the chamber
will also commence its usual winter
course in prospecting. The classes
will meet Tuesday and Thursday
nights at the King Edward High
Dr. S.J. Schofield and Dr. Vic-'
tor Dolmage will handle the classes
in geology and Prof. J. M. Turn-
bull the classes in mining. All
three are members of the faculty of
the University of British Columbia.
Mr. G. S. Eldridge will give the
lectures on metallurgy.
Rand   Mines  Employ
200,000 Men
Johannesburg was founded in
188(1 and has since become the center of the most productive gold
field of the world.
The mines on the Band have
produced gold to the value of almost ^1,000,000,000 in that time,
and Johannesburg has kept pace
by increasing its population to
237,100. The mines on the Rand
alone employ almost 200,000 men.

A training school for the encouragement of home industries is
being talked of in Winnipeg, following the Folksong Festival held
ln that city recently under the auspices of the Canadian Pacific Railway. Montreal, It may be noted,
has had for some years classes to
teach their native handicrafts to
children of foreign-born settlers,
who would otherwise be likely not
to acquire the skill they would have
developed in their own country.
W. N. Beach, a hunter and photographer of wild life who had the
unique distinction of finding two
different pairs of locked antlers
during his career, was a recent
visitor to the General Tourist Department of the C. P. R. at Montreal. Locked'antlers are very rarely found and one of the two pairs
discovered by him are so firmly
interlocked that they cannot be
pulled apart by two strong men,
and to be separated would have to
be cut.
"In all my experience I have not
previously found so general a feeling of complete confidence in this
country and its possibilities as was
observed in the cities and district?

opportunity of talking things over

was the statement made by E. W.
Beatty, president of the Canadian
Pacific Railway, who has just returned to Montreal from an eight
thousand mile tour over the company's western lines, accompanied
by a party of directors and Montreal financiers.

Mining & Metallurgy Institute
Will Hold Meeting Next
The Annual General Western
Meeting of the Canadian Institute
of Mining and Metallurgy will be
held this year in Vancouver on
November 2tst.—23rd. ' In recent
years the Institute Meetings, both
of the parent body and of the division in British Columbia have been
' notably successful.
Not only have they attracted a
large attendance, comparable to
the attendance at similar functions
in the great centres of Eastern
Canada, but the papers presented
and the discussionsthereonhavebecn
of a high order. Tho Meeting this
year promises to be no less successful in every respect judging from
the programme that has now been
announced. The Sessions will be
held in the Hotel Vancouver, and
will open on Wednesday morning
with an address by the President
of the Institute, Mr. R. H. Stewart.
This will be followed by the
presentation of a review on conditions and mining developments
during the year in British Columbia
by the Provincial Mineralogist, Mr.
J. D. Galloway, and the Resident
Engineers of the respective Mineral Survey Districts.
Sherritt-Gordon May
Exceed Flin Flon
Engineers who have recently
visited Sherritt-Gordon are reported to be unanimous in their opinion
that this mine when developed, will
be larger than Flin Flon. Diamond
drilling is said to be revealing some
of the best ore yet encountered and
it is now believed that the ore will
run approximately $14 to the ton,
allowing for concentrating losses.
The average width of all the ore
opened up is stated to be approximately 18 feet, although one trench
east of the shaft showed a good
grade across 76 feet. It has been
proven that the westerly extension
of the ore zone remains in the newly acquired Sherritt claims. This
is an important improvement, as
for a time it was thought the extension would go on to . other

the world's growing population is
hound to require a steadily increasing wheat supply.

Sales of Copper Falling
But Price Maintained
Sales of copper during the week
ending today were little more than
50 per cent of normal. The total
for the week was almost a duplication of that reported for tho preceding week. Sales of small lots, in a
number of instances for reasonably
early delivery have predominated.
Demand for automobile production
has been a feature of sales of this
type. On most of the larger orders
November and early December
delivery has been designated.
Considerable inquiry for January
metal was reported by various
'. .sellers, but in only one instance
was delivery that far in advance
agreed upon. Export business has
been in normal volume, though
some factors in the trade arc inclined to believe that October and
November requirements of Continental consumers are in large part
unprovided for. With operations
in the various districts in the West
speeded up to permit increased production, employment at a high rate
and with the recent wage advances
in effect, conditions at the Copper
mines are beginning to reflect the
improved situation of the copper
market in recent months. Copper
Exporters Inc., maintain their price
at I5j4c. per pound c.i.f. usual
European destinations.—Engineering and Mining Journal.

Persons conversant with the
brewery situation in Western Canada report that a general program of
amalgamation and consolidation is
underway which will eventually
result in a huge brewing organization in Western Canada.
During the past year or 18
