Anyox Moose Hold Card
Party and Dance
During the past few years it has
been the pleasure of Anyox sport
teams aud fans to be tho guests of
the Anyox Community League at
their Annual Sports' Banquet.
On Monday evening this now
celebrated event was held at the
Reoreation Hall, when one hundred
and seventy sat down to enjoy the
bounteous     hospitality    of     the
League.
For brilliancy of the scene, the
sumptuonsness of the banquet, the
high order of the entertainment
and the enthusiasm shown by
everyone, the banquet on Monday
far surpassed those of. previous
years. Arrangements were oarried
out with splendid precision, aud
the whole programme was completed without the slightest hitch.
Every invitation card carried a
number, and on entering the Hall
the guests were conducted to then-
chairs which bore a duplicate
number.
The tables extended the full
length of the Halliu two rows,
while at the stage end the tables
were across the Hall, in the centre
'of which was seated Dr. D. K.
Learoyd, who aoted as Chairman,
and supporting him on either side
were the managers of the baseball
and football teams.
The ooveted silver cups, tor
the possession of which every team
has striven throughout the season,
were displayed in the centre of the
* After several selections had been
played by the orohestra, the Chairman proposed that an onslaught
be made on the edibles and this
proposal seemed to have the hearty
SUAPt°the0coanclu8ion of the banquet,
the1 Chairman made a few remarks,
during which he said: The men in
the camp may sometimes be thinned out, but those left earned on
the sports programme with renew-
«d vigor, irrespective of what
eposi2 they held. He was
pleased to say that one of the out-
standing features of the past
season was the excellent football
games pWed, and was glad to see
all the fellows get together at the
end of the season and enjoy them-

Even a Ford Car Has
Limit Of Endurance
It is conceded by everyone who
knows anything about a oar that
the Ford is a wonderful piece of
locomotion. A Ford car will do
almostanything it is called to do
by a skillful driver. But there are
limits to whioh even a Ford can
go, as Barney Turbitt found during the week, when he endeavoured to convert his trusty Ford into
a snbmarine, without first encasing her with a steel shell.
It appears that Barney was
speeding up from the wharf, with
freight and passengers for the city,
when he came to the creek near
Bruggy's store. It was high tide
and real high at that, but Barney
opened her up and she hit the
"drink" on "high." ^Passershy on
the street say she threw a wave so
high it made them feel sea-sick to
watch it. The Ford made, a
gallant attempt to cross the ford,
but the steep incline of the bank
was too much and with a groan
and then a gurgle she died in midstream. A team of husky horses
hauled her to the oity streets, and
under the skilful manipulation of
the monkey wrench by Barney,
and supported by a number of
assistants, both vocal and other:
wise, the high diving Ford has
reoovered,

Homeguard Property
Gives Good Values
From New Strike
What is probably the most
important ore strike in the Alice
Arm district this year, was that
recently made by Wm. McFarlane
on the Homeguard property. Assay
returns that have just been received give the following values; gold
0.04 ounces, silver 26.55 ounces,
copper 0.76 per cent per ton, This
ore was picked right off the surface
and was leached out, considerably,
so that with lower depths the
value should considerably increase.
Lots of higher values have been
obtained in the Alice Arm district,
but it must be remembered that
the Homeguard contains immense
bodies of ore, but the property has
been a mystery to mining engineers
and geologists.
Immense boulders of rock have
been found, measuring 26 feet wide
aud 50 or more feet in length.
These boulders carry as high as
ten per cent, copper, and it has
been estimated that 4000 tons of
ore is in sight in these boulders
ready to mine.
The question was: where did
these boulders come from? They
could not have travelled any great
distance, or they would have
broken smaller. This question
now seems to be answered, as the
ore from which the above values
were obtained is solid rock. This
ledge is located a distance of 400
feet above the previous showings
whore a tunnel is driven, and lies
in a southerly direction.
Mr. Geo. Clothier, government
mining engineer was on thegrouud
this year, and made an extensive
examination of the property, but
tihis find was made since his visit.
The owners, Messrs. G. W.
Bruggy and Wm. McFarlane are
jubilant over their good fortune iu
finding the key to the mystery,
and plau to do extensive work on
the new ledge next spring.
The Homeguard is situated
about 14 miles up the Kiisault
valley on the east bank of. the
river, and is only 1500 feet from
the Dolly Varden railway. A
good pack bridge was built across
the river this year, so that transportation problems will not. enter
into the development or shipping
of ore from the property,

Great Britain To Smelt
Canadian Concentrates
A Vanoouver dispatch states
that the British Government will
not have to smelt considerable of
its zinc in Belgium plants after
April, 11125.
Refineries and new retorts are
being installed in Britain that will
make it possible to care for all the
concentrates shipped from the colonies.
At the present time Britain imports 12,000 tons of slab zinc a
month from Belgium and this is
principally refined from Australian
and Canadian zinc concentrates.
The smelters of Britain are producing only about 4,000 tons of
zinc a inonth at presnt.
Louis Hersler, associated with
the Joplin zinc interests of the
United States is endeavoring to
secure certain connections with
the Belgium refineries that will
mean Antwerp refining American
concentrates and competing in
world markets with British zinc
made from Canadian concentrates
after next April.

Indians Strike Placer
Gold Near Carcross
Practically the whole male population at Carcross has set out for
Little Atlin Lake where it is said
a band of Indian prospectors under
the leadership of "Big Lake" Jim
has discoverd placer gold within
40 miles of the town and twenty
miles east of the old Tagish post.
Big Jim notified other Indians
of the discovery before coming
to town to let the white population in on the strike and the
Indians are said to have pegged
out the best claims. Nearly everyone making the trip has been
successful in getting a claim or the
part ownership in one.
In the stampede, the first Car-
cross has seen for some time,
practically everyone fit to travel
rushed out to the scene as soon as
word of the strike was received-

and "Symphonic Studies in English.-'   The latter being an-eticore.
Mr. C. Wing, who was also
called upon by the Chairman to
say a few words, said that making
speeches was a pastime he did not
enjoy. In looking baok over the
past few years, he was glad to say
that the games now played were of
a much higher standard than formerly, and the class of ball now
played in Anyox was hard to beat,
even in the big cities. He hoped
that as good games would be played next year, and that we would
all be here again at the next
banquet. *
The Football Onp. which was
won by the Beaoh team, was presented to Mr. E. Craggs by H. R
Patrick of tbe Smelter team, who
has held it for the past year. Mr.
Patrick, in handing over the cup
congratulated the Beach team on
their good play, but was sorry
to part with the silverware.
Mr. Craggs said it gave him
great pleasure to receive the cup
and hoped the same bunch would
win it again next year.
The cup then  went the rounds.
Song: Mr. H. Baillon, "Sun
shine of your Smile". Encore,
"Dear old Pal of Mine."
Song: Mr. J. Varnes. "Old
snan Bailey had two sons." Encore, "Burglar Bill."
The Chairman stated that the
medals, donated by the Granby
Co. to the winning baseball team
had not arrived, but would be
presented at a later date.
Mr. L. F. Champion was the
next one chosen by the Chairman
to say a few words on behalf of
sport. Mr. Champion said the
Rifle Club, of which he was a
member had been practising
throughout the summer, and all
members had eujoyed themselves.
He expected that a 25-yard
range would be made under the
Gymnasium for the winter season,
and hoped tliey would 'obtain all
possible support.
Selection by the orchestra. Medley.

sang an encore.

God Save the King. Accompanist, Dr. Harper.
For the splendid success of the
evening a considerable share of the
credit is due to Dr. D. R. Learoyd,
that incomparable chairman. He
handled the programme in a manner, that left not a dull moment in
the entire evening, and any deviation he made from the printed
programme, was a liberty well
rewarded.
To entertain such a large number entails a vast amount of hard
work, and the major portion of
this naturally fell upon the shoulders of the secretary-of the Community League, Mr. F, M. Kelley.
That he did' his duty well, was
evidenced by the unsurpassed
arrangements made. Everything
was handled with clock-work precision, and everyone was well
cared for. Assisting him were the
various committees which are as
follows:
Programme Committee: Ed
Pearce, Ed. Waterman. Reception and Slipper Committee: G.
