Anyox Dominion Day
Celebration
Rain Curtailed Day's Sport
What was scheduled to be one
grand day of sport in Anyox, on
Dominion Day was somewhat curtailed on account of the, inclement
weather.
All the plans for the day had
been worked out in detail by the
hard-working' secretary of. the
Community League and his energetic band of supporters compris-*
inn the din-rent committees!
Everyone was out and anxious to
go, and a good  start  was made.
The marathon raoe for men,
from Hotel to Mine Apartments
and return, was Won by Ingraham,
Dodds being second. Tlie boys'
marathon race, Hotel to Beach
Mess and return, was won by
Asimus, McDonald being second.
At 10.30 the Ball Park was
crowded with spectators to watch
tlie baseball game between Anyox
and Ketchikan All Star teams,
a report of which will be found in
our sporting columns.
The afternoon sports and   the
evening baseball game were forced
to be   abandoned   owing   to   the
heavy downpour of rain.   It
been decided, however, to hold "th
sports this afternoon.
A party of about thirty came
over from Ketchikan on the launch
'Prince of Wales, and although the
rain was heavy enough to dampen
the brightest spirits they refused to
be denied a good time and enjoyed
themselves to the limit. Their enjoyment was largely due to the
officers of the Community League
and the B. P. 0. Elks. The latter
provided a banquet at the Elks'
Hall to the Ketchikan visitors, and
a dance was given in their honor
at the Gymnasium, by the League.
Although the danoe was advertised to close at midnight, so great
was the crowd aud enthusiasm that
it was oarried on until 2 a.m. and,
even then, there were some who
were willing to fox trot some more.
The Orchestra, composed of J.
Austin, piano; G. Steele, trombone; Sid Armstrong and Bert
White, violins; Chas. Hutchinson,
clarinet; A. Nother, saxophone,
and E. J. Waterman, drums and
traps, were kept exceptionally busy
and their musio was perfect. Ice
cream, etc. was served as refreshments throughout the evening.

Government Road
Work Progressing
The government are making
great progress with their summer's
programme of road work in the
vioinity of Alice Arm.
Good progress is being made
with the repairing of the Dolly
Varden railway tracks, and it is
expected that it will be possible to
operate hand cars and gasoline
speeders to Camp 8 before the end
of the month.      .
There . was some anxiety as to
whether the railway would be repaired this summer, and great
satisfaction is felt now that the
utilization of the railway is
guaranteed. It is the only means
of transportation >up the Kitsault
valley, and its upkeep is of vital
importance to the mining industry
of that district.
Work has been going on for the
past few weeks constructing a
road from the new Kitsault bridge
to connect up with the wharf road
near the school. All that remains
to be done to complete it, is surfacing, and when this has been done,
a first class road will be available
from the wharf to* the bridge.
Progress is also being made on
ie road which will start at the
east end of the:"KitsauTt'bridge,
traverse the flats, and eventually
connect up with the Illiance river
pack trail across the bay. A con
siderable portion of this road has
been cleared and graded, and as
soon as logging operations are
finished near the bridge the work
can be speeded up.
When this work is completed
the Illiance trail will be connected
with the wharf by a good road,
available for wagons or autos.
Alice Arm has for a long time
been handicapped by lack of roads
and now that a start has been
made, let us hope the good work
will be carried on.

Game
Baseball
On Sunday afternoon the Giants
baseball team went down to defeat
at the hands of the White Sox
team to the tune of 20 runs to 7
runs. Jimmie McAleenan rallied
his team time and again, but his
mates could not secure the lead.
Lee Intermelia, their star second
base man, not only hit a home
run, but played his position
wonderfnlly, but for all of that
the White Sox, starring Sherman,
Bruggy, Falcqner, Warner and
Maun, could not hold themselves,
and made a clean get-a-way, playing there positions in great form.
The teams lined up as follows:
Giants: Hill, Burmeister, Al
Falcoijer, Intermelia, McAlenan,
Flint, Wilson, Gus Anderson.
"White Sox: Sherman, Bruggy,
T. W. Falooner, Mann, Warner,
Jaok Anderson, R. McGinnis,
Skoglund, Morley.

Anyox Baseball and
Football Games
The Elks put over their third
straight' win on Friday evening,
when they took the Miners into
camp to the tune of nine runs to
six. The Mine chased four markers across in the first frame and
held the Elks scoreless for the first
two innings. In the third the
Antlered Herd succeeded in finding
Ferguson for a series of base hits
and when the smoke had cleared
away three runs had been chalked
up. The Mine added two more to
their total in the fourth only to
have the Elks come back in their
half of the same inning and gather
in four. Two more in the sixth
inning for the Brother Bills ended
the scoring. After the first inning
Cody settled down and pitched
air tight ball and ' was given
wonderful support by his team
mates. Mclntyre pulled off'two
spectacular catches in the sixth
inning, of what looked like sure
base hits. F. B,,ovvn played a
good game at short stop foi* the
muckers, accepting several difficult chances without a miscue.
The teams Were: Mine, Kirk,
Ferguson, And.frson, O. Kirk,
Brown, Allen,p Clark, Valpj,
Dooley Dean.     " * ~ * ~- -    ••* , *fia v*
Elks: Down, Campbell, Greenwell, Cody, Hal], Sheen, Mclntyre,
Smith, Thorley. •;.
Umpires W. OlsenV aud • A.
Sinclair.
' Not dampened by the down
pour of rain the Anyox All Star
Baseball Team took the strong
American Aggregation into camp
to the tune of 7—5.
The first two innings were very
disastrous for the visitors, the
Anyox boys scoring no less than
seven runs; five in the first
through three walks and countless
errors. The second inning the
home boys again tallied twice on a
couple of nice hits and an error.
From there on the visitors were
undoubtedly the best team, showing more class in fielding and
sticking. O'Oonnell started for
Ketchikan, but was yanked in the
third having hurt his knee, which
necessitated medical attention.
Ellensburg carried the burden for
the remainder of the game, and
Anyox was not able to solve his
mystery ball, one lone hit was the
extent, of their endeavours. In the
last frame the visitors nearly cinched the game, and had it not been
for a spectacular catch by Harry
Down of Harris' line drive the
score would have been tied, as two
men were on bases at the time.
The evening game was called off
on account of rain, and the
executive did all in their power to
give the visitors a good time.
The Married men gave the
Single gentry a lesson in football
at the Park on Dominion day,
they only played a half an hour
but in that short time the benedicts managed to run in three goals.
A heavy downpour of rain put an
end to further hostilities.

Big Output of Logs
at Alice Arm
This year is the biggest yoar for
the logging industry in Alice Arm;
both Eric Carlson and the Granby
Co's. No. 2 camp are working full
blast.
Eric Carlson, contractor for the
Abbotsford Logging Co. is logging
around 70.000 feet per day over
the railroad. . He finished logging
on the east branch of the Illiance
river last week, except for some
piling, which remains to be taken
out. The logs were pulled to a
<ipar tree and later will be hauled
to the water. There is now over
3,000,000 feet boomed iu the water
awaiting arrival of a tug to tow
them to Ocean Falls.
During high watet periods m
the Kitsault river, the water over-
Flowed, and made logging operations somewhat difficult and unpleasant. There are from 55 to 60.
men employed at the camp, and
logging will continue until the
snow flies, and will again be continued next summer, when it is expected the ground held by the
company will be logged off.
The No. 2 camp of. the Granby
Co. are bringing down from 70,000
to 100,000 feet per day over the
Dolly Varden railway. The logs
are made up into small booms and
towed to the company'e sawmill at
Larcom Island. The mill is cutting
75,000 feet per day and is ill steady
operation.
The railway trestle at No. 2
camp of the Granby Co. is now
completed, and the laying of steel
is almost finished. A locomotive
has yet to be brought in, aud it is
expected that in a short time the
camp will be running to capacity
dumping the giant spruce trees of
the Kitsault flats into the water.
Contributions of labelled ore
samples for the Fair and finally
for the Monster Mineral Exhibit
ou the Prince Rupert Waterfront
should he shipped in not later than
August 31st.
See Al. Falconer for Freight and
Pack horses..
Mr. R. Gordon, of Prince T ipert
has accepted the position of school
teacher at the looal school. Mr.
Gordon holds a first class certificate aud has been recommended by
the school inspector.
Don't forget the ball game tomorrow afternoon.
Norman McLeod and Hans Peterson left yesterday with 500
pounds of supplies for the Standard
property, *ou McGrath mountain,
where they will do considerable
development work.
Mr. John Stromstad was struck
in the face by a steel rail yesterday
at the No. 2 oamp of the Granby
Co. He received a broken nose
and other injuries, aud was at once
taken to Anyox Hospital.
Mr. J. A. Watson was conveyed
to Anyox Hospital this morning,

There are very few mining
camps throughout the country, but
what have had their good and
bad times, but history proves that
if the ore is there in sufficient
quantities, and rich enough to be
profitably worked, that eventually
the camp will be developed.
Alice Arm has had its good times
and it has had its quiet times.
We have here a hard quartz mining camp, also transportation
problems, and it costs considerable
money to properly develop a
property. Everyone who has examined the mineral deposits of the
district, admit they are second to
none on the continent, and well
worthy of considerable expenditure of money for development
purposes. They are also sure
that some day these properties
will be developed. What is causing some concern, however, is
when any big dovelopment work
will be undertaken. Thirty or
forty years hence will be no benefit
to most of us. What we need is
immediate action, and the sooner
we can encourage capital to invest
in mining in this district the better.
Anyox Community League are
to be congratulated on the excellent programme ot sports outlined
for Dominion Day. If the
weather had been favorable, it is
safe.to say that this year's celebration would have far excelled all
others. The baseball team and
fans from Ketchikan were well
cared for by the Community
League and P. B. O. Elks, and
others also made their visit as
pleasant as possible under the circumstances. "Give the visitors a
good time," was the slogan of the
day, and although a trifle damp
we are sure the Ketchikan visitors
enjoyed themselves to the full
The Herald has now entered

past three years, it has not been
all plain sailing, we have weathered
some storms, but have managed to
steer clear of the rocks, and while
we are not yet in smooth water
we can look to the future with

straight, criticizing few, but lauding
many. We have given every

Money Available for Mining
Development
That Canada could readily
secure iu London, England, all the
capital required for the development of her mineral resources,
provided those interested in mining properties could show the investor mineral deposits worthy of
development, was the statement
made by Sit* William Maxwell,
K. B. E., iu an addess at The Pas,
Man., a few days ago. Sir William, prominent English mine
owner and writer, was on his first
visit to tlie Herb Lake gold optnp,
during hia tour of Canada over
Canadian National lines. •

Guggenheims Close Down
Mining Properties
Development work on mining
properties at Owen Lake near
Houston, whioh the Federal Mining and Smelting Co. has been
conducting for some months, was
closed down at the end of the
week and the staff sent out. It is
said that the company was not
satisfied with the showings.
As a result of unfavorable reports made by Mr. Burbidge, a
consulting engineer, who recently
visited the properties, it is understood that the Federal Co. is also
closing down operations at Usk
and Dome Mountain.
Agricultural Produce Shows
Large Increase
Agricultural production in British Columbia during 1923 had a
total value of $59,159,798, an increase of nearly $4,000,000 over
the previous year, according to a
statement issued by the provincial
department of agriculture. Dairy
products accounted for $9,234,576
of the total. Fruit production
was valued at $6,034,976, while
vegetables were worth $5,853,626.
Fodder and grain crops accounted
for the balance.

BY MOTOR AND PACK HORSE THROUGH CLOUD WONDERLAND
FOR the man or woman in
search of healthful recreation,
rest for jaded, nerves, and a
thoroughly enjoyable holiday, the
world offers nothing more entrancing than a holiday in Jasper National Park, Canada's wonderland
of scenery, where mountain, crag
and torrent vie with one another in
claiming the attention and where
scenic nature is. at her best
Towering peaks rise to the north,
south, east and west; mirrored in
the beauty of placid lakes whose
shores provide shelter for the
myriad wild life for which the
largest of all Canada's national
parks is famous.
Whether the tourist goes sightseeing by motor car or by the more
romantic pack pony, Jasper National Park offers him the best
that can . be found anywhere
Motor roads and pack trails radiate
in every   direction   from Jasper
Park Lodge, the magnificent log
cabin hotel of the Canadian National Railways, and the tourist
_iay "engage either ponies and
guides or an automobile and thus
see the mountains at his pleasure
Mount Edith Cavell, named to
honor the memory of Britain's
heroic nurse, rises, by the side of
Mount Sorrow, within a short drive
of tbe Lodge and is one of the
favorite drives of visitors to the
Lodge. 'The Cavell highway,
smooth-surfaced, winds up toward
the very foot of the Ghost Glacier,
presenting to the visitor a new
vista of scenic wonders at every
turn. As one rides toward the
foot of the glacier, the Athabasca
Valley far beneath presents an attractive picture of calm loveliness,
S'hile here and there a lake, re-
ecting blue sky and sunshine,
adds its touch to the beauty of the
landscape. There are other drives
which may be taken in comfort-
one may go in an hour, for instance, to the wonderful Maligne
Canyon, one of the natural wonders of the entire Rocky Mountain
region, where rushing waters go
tumbling and boiling through, a
narrow aperture worn in the rock,
two hundred feet below the feet of
the tourist as he or she stands on
one of the footbridges which span
its narrow width. At any turn- of
the road the visitor may find himself face to face with a bear or a
deer, walking calmly across the
highway, while on the sides of the
mountains he may see mountain
sheep or goats grazing.
The tourist to whom riding appeals will find plenty to hold his
attention. Pack trails may be followed for miles, when in the company of an efficient guide,, one may
set forth to explore regions which
are beyond the reach of the motor
tourist. The wondrous Maligne
Lake and Medicine Lake, with their
quota of mountains reaching down
almost to the water's edge, draw
more and more tourists every year.
For years the wonders of Canada's national parks have been
better known outside of Canada
than they have been to Canadians,
but year by year Canadians themselves are realizing that they have,
in their own country, scenic attractions which are not surpassed
anywhere in the world, and consequently the number of Canadians
registering at Jasper Park Lodge
is showing remarkable increases.
Comfortable, steam-heated cabins
are provided for their accommodation, an excellent cuisine is maintained at the main Lodge, where
surroundings and service are of
the world famous Canadian National Railways standard and every
care is taken to see that visitors to
Canada's largest and finest national park enjoy their outing to
the full.

British Columbia's agricultural
production last year increased ia
value $4,000,000 over the 1922 period,
figures compiled by the provincial
Department   of   Agriculture   show,
A steady increase in the volume
of wheat exports from Canada is
noted in the monthly statement just
Issued by the Dominion Bureau of
Statistics. In April, 1924, 6,085,465
busiaels in all were exported, as
against 5,143,304 in April, 1923.
It is anticipated that hundreds and
thousands of visitors to the beautiful Annapolis Valley, Nova Scotia,
will help to celebrate the famous
fruit-district's "Apple Blossom Sun-
day," which falls on June 8th this
year. The entire orchard belt, extending from Annapolis Royal to
Windsor, a distance of about 80
miles, is always white and pink
with blossom in the first part of
June.
Hon. Honore Mcrcier, Minister of
Lands and Forests, speaking of arrangements made in the province for
forest protection this year, stated:
''I really believe that the way the
service is organized and with t'.-.e
good-will manifested by all classes
of the community, who realize the
importance of protecting your national domain, the year will be a
good one and the losses reduced to
a minimum.''
The report of the statistician to
the board of grain commissioners
for April, recently issued, records
the heaviest spring great lakes shipping season on record. The report
says that there are indications that
all the surplus of the western crops
will be moved as fast as transportation facilities permit, as export purchases are to be heavier than usual
and all ocean tonnage out of Montreal for May and June has already
been engaged, as well as part for
the July loading.
Something new in the way of railway equipment is the new storage
battery car now operating over
Canadian Pacific lines between Gait
and Hamilton. The car attains a
speed of 35 miles per hour and
makes two trips a day in each direction. It has three compartments,
general, passenger, smoking and
baggage, is of all-steel construction
and will accommodate 50 passengers.
The service is reported to be giving
every satisfaction to the people of
the district.
Interviewed in Vancouver as to
the success of the round-the-world
cruise completed on May 24th by the
"Empress of Canada," E. W. Beatty,
said:
"To gauge the success of th*
'Empress of Canada's' round-the-
world cruise one has only to ask the
passengers their opinion of the entire trip. I spoke to several while
crossing from Victoria and without
exception they all expressed their
complete satisfaction with the ship,
its officers and the arrangements
made and carried out since the day
She left Vancouver, almost five
months ago.
"That is good enough for me. It
is simple demonstration that the
Canadian Pacific can successfully
conduct cruises in competition with
any organization in the world and
maintain that company's standing
as a credit to Canada. The "Empress of Canada" has carried ths
Canadian flag over the seven seas
and into most of the world's great
ports, and the missionary work she
has done1 for Canada in the various
countries touched should not be lost
sight of. As one result of the undoubted success of this cruise, w«
look forward with renewed interest
to the Canadian Pacific cruises of
next season. They include the West
Indies, the Mediterranean and another round-the-world cruise which
will be made by the "Empress of
France," already overhauled and fitted with a view to providing ths
greatest possible comfort for her
passengers. The experience gained
this year will greatly help in enabling us to make these cruises even
more successful than those recently
completed."     r*

Big Provincial Payroll
A report issued by the labor
department shows the total payroll last year of the province as
$145,000,000, a substantial gain.
It includes only firms making returns. The number of smelter
employees in the province is given
as 1893.
Reports show fewer Asiatics employed and a falling off in activity
of local mining on Vancouver
island, offset by mining activity
in the interior.

FOREST
IT   PAYS
Dr. T. J. GLOVER
of Toronto, who is to put the results of his search for a cure for
cancer before the medical bodies
of the United States. He believes that the disease is caused
by micro-organism, but this
theory is severely criticized by
some of the medical profession.
The Real Paymaster
Forests are jobs. Trees mear
trade. Logs are the raw material
not of lumber or paper, but of pay
cheques. It is an incidental matter that the forest gives us telegraph poles. It is a very important matter that the forest gives us
120,000 workmen, supporting a
half million of Canadian dependents, and distributing 500 million
dollars to. maintain Canadian
prosperity. Conservation would-
never bother itself with trees if
trees were not the substance of
human employment. The Forest
Protectionist would not sweat a
drop for a square mile of Spruce if
he did uot know that some vast
industry, a thriving town and a
thousand contented homes are tied
to Spruce trees by an inseparable
bond.
We Canadians set 6,000 forest
fires a year and nine-tenths of them
through human recklessness, but
those beacon lights of prodigality
mean nothing if they do not tell
us that* we have put the torch to
the livelihood of thousands of men;
we have signed an unrenewable
note for our children and our
grand-children to pay. Let it be
laid down as an ugly and undis-
turbable fact that in the present
situation with forest demand jammed hard against dwindling forest.
supply, every forest fire must be
paid for. Every mile of Spruce
or Pine or Fir given to the annual
bonfire will have to be bought
back by the next generation in
higher costs of lumber and paper,
in forfeited industries, in dwindling public revenues, arid a saorifice
of population.
ON THE BEACH AT MANITOU
LONG before the paleface came
to the broad and rolling
pfairies, the Red man knew
and appreciated the curative properties of Little Lake Manitou,
which is located- near -Watrous,
Saskatchewan, on the main line of
the Canadian National Railways.
And the first white settlers who
came, in advance of the railways,
to settle on their homesteads in
and around Watrous.'soon learned
of this lake with its highly mineralized waters, so that Little Lake
Manitou had its reputation made
when the,first settlers reached the
country.
Today thousands of residents of
prairie cities find Little Lake Manitou an ideal watering place, and
'excursions are run from time to
time over the Canadian National
Railways from Saskatoon and
other cities to provide citizens with
a means of reaching this delightful spot. ... .  ,     ._.
The waters of Little Lake Manitou are so highly mineralized that
the swimmer finds no difficulty in
floating on their surface and at the
same time their mineral qualities
are health-giving in their action.
With, a good sandy beach for the
kiddies to .play on, and water
chutes and other enjoyment features erected for their entertainment, Little Lake Manitou has become the ideal picnic spot for the
dwellers in the central region of
Saskatchewan.
