Minister of ' Public Works
regarding the location of the
Kitsault River bridge in which he
said that the matter was receiving
the attention of the department.
As no definite word had' been
received that the toridgo would be

building the bridge at once, and a
|, motion was made by Geo. Mathe-
{son, seconded by A. McGuire.

Successful Dance
Held at Alice Arm
In order, to celebrate the
completion of the new bunkhouse
at Trethewey Bros, logging camp, a
dance was held on Saturday evening, and an open invitation was
given to the people of Alice Arm to
attend, which was readily responded to. A large number availed
themselves of the opportunity to
take a trip to the camp, three
wagons being loaded and others
forced to walk. Dancing commenced as soon as the party hit the
oamp, and everyone was quickly
stepping to the witching strains of
the orchestra, which was composed
of Messrs E. Ness, E. R. Oatman
and J. Fiva. The floor'was in
perfect condition for dancing, and,
as is usual in logging camps, there
was an abundance to eat.
Mr. T. W. Falconer, in" a short
speech, thanked Mr. Trethewey on
behalf of the people of Alice Arm
for the hospitality shown them.
Mr. Trethewey, in reply said that
he hoped the present genial relations beeween the town and camp
would continue and thanked them
all for coming over.
Tommy Black sang a number of
the old favorite Scotch songs, which
were encored again and again, and
the Misses Kathleen and Irene
Bruggy delighted the audience with
fine exhibitions of the Highland
Fling. Altogether it was a grand
night and everyone spent an evening long to be remembered.
Most of the visitors elected to
walk home, rather than wait for
the tide to recede, and under a
bright moon in the wee small
hours of the morning the visitors
wended their way home, tired but
perfectly happy.
A. C. L. Easter Dance
Held at Anyox
The Easter Dance held ou Monday night, at the Reoreation Hall,
under the auspices of the Anyox
Community League, was a huge
success in every way. The affair
was a financial success. It was
the first entertainment staged by
the new Council and the first A. C.
L. dance to turn out a financial
success for some time.
From the point of view of enjoy-
mefit for the dancers who filled the
hall, the music of the 5-piece orohestra was better than ever. The
decorations were a special feature
of the occasion, being symbolical of
spring or Eastertide. The beautiful artistic effect being carried out
in artificial flowers made bv a committee of ladies.
An exoellent supper was served
and so efficiently handled that only
thirty minutes elapsed from the
time dancing ceased until resumed. Credit for this is due to Mr.
and Mrs. T. Simpson, who were in
charge of kitchen arrangements.
The ladies who made the decorations, were: Mesdames', Buck,
Eve, Kelley and Selfe. The decorating being done by Messrs. Eaton,
Blaney, Dwyer, Eve, Kelley, Selfe
and Ryan.

Geo. Lee; Secretary-Treasurer, F,
F. Brown; Team Manager, D. Roy

by the enthusiasm displayed we
may look forward to a season of
baseball better than ever before in
Anyox. Several players whose
abilities are well known will be on
the Smelter line-up, and many new
faces will also be seen, so things
look promising for a strong team
to represent the smelter this year.

ALICE   ARM   AND   ANYOX   HERALD,   Aliob Abm,   Saturday, April 7, 1923
The Trail of Ninety-Eight
It was in the spring of ninety-eight
That I left my home, my native state.
I turned to .the West, the land of the free,
My hopes running high the future to see.
I crossed the plains in those hard times
To seek employment in the B. 0. mines.
I came to a place called the Greenwood Camp,
And, Oh, I was tired after my long tramp!
And there at the Ironsides Mine I found
There were six men working underground.
They were sinking a shaft with hammer and drill.
And later to drift for ore in the hill, .
And through this little shaft on that Ironsides Claim
Many a man has won mining fame.
So I sought out the foreman and said he to me,
"If you are a miner, come out at three"
•So I joined this band of miners brave,
And in less than two months saw two in the grave;
For there we encountered the most deadly gas
That has ever been known to come to pass.
Yes, two of them died—and two went insane,
And the rest of the boys were never the same,
I would like to name you two or three
Of those good boys who worked with me.
There was John A. Swanson and his brother Steve,
Both expert men we all believe.
Again John Pierce and his brother Will,
Both true and trusty and going still,
Gabriel Fustus and George Oattanac,
Polmer Cook and Billy Mac,
And the Fraser boys they never fail,
And the jolly good fellow called Martin McHale.
And I want to tell you friend or foe,
Those were the days you had to know
How to swing your hammer and twist your drill,
Bun a piston machine with equal skill,
Lay in your pipe lines and handle your pump
And put in the timber on the jump.
If all of this you could not do
It was up to you to—skidoo!
For the grade of the ore was somewhat low,
And the copper too was moving slow,
And it was a gamble and nothing more
If they could make it pay when we struck the ore;
Bnt we stayed, we stuck, against hard luck,
We found the ore, but they called it—muck.
But I hear a voice, "Did they make it pay?"
They certainly did, we got three-fifty a day!
We developed the mine, Oh, wonderous works,
And they built a smelter at Grand Forks,
And the C. P. E. they built a road
To haul the ore by the long train load,
And Lfancy I see that slow old shay,
Pounding and puffing on her way:
For the grade was heavy by the Rawhide Mine
And it was all they could do to get in on time.
But it had to be so, as you all know,
Through the summer sun and the winter snow,
For down at the smelter those furnaces red,
With their jaws wide open had to be fed,
And it was up to the boys on the Phoenix Hill
To break the. ore and give them their fill.
Later they built in two furnaces more,
For the mine was new and there was lots of ore,
And then the big Great Northern came
To take a hand in this mining game.
They swung to the west from the Emma Mine
And found a grade that was easy to climb.
With their twenty-five cars to every train
They rolled into camp like a hurricane.
They built trestles and Bridges and railroad track   •
To climb the hill with a long switch-bock.
Till up at the Victoria bunkers you might see
Jim Hill shaking hands with Shaughnessy.   ,
And this is the time when the foundation was laid
By honest men who were not afraid.
Whereby it is possible for us today
To-live in peace on Anyox Bay.
So now my friends both old and new
Let us work together as we should do.
Come shoulder to shoulder and pull with me
For a jolly good year this Nineteen Twenty Three.

forty. Having refused during all
these years to sell out, he retired some
time ago with $100,000, all based on
that first small investment.

Viotoria, April 3rd.—Prior to
^leaving for Ottawa, Hon. T. D.
'Pattullo, minister of lands, issued
instructions for the distribution of
literature regarding fire prevention
and readers who have not received
this may secure it direct from the
forest.branch. Last summer witnessed very heavy fire losses and
this year the laws have been made
much stricter. British Columbia
has an asset in her timber which
can be conserved indefinitely, but
every citizen must assist in fighting
fires if the heavy losses are not to
be paid each year.
This provinoe has 400,000,000,000
board feet of standing timber, with
an annual increase through growth
Alone of 8*000,000,000 feet, and
while the total capaoity of proViii-,
aial saw-mills is only 2,500,000,000
feet of lumber annually, still, fire
destroys as much timber as is out.
It is a simple matter to put out a
oamp lire, but it requires from fifty
to one hundred years to reproduce
a forest giant.

"Yes sir, officers' cook for two years

"You're-lucky, man.   It's a wonder
ihey didn't kill you."
Only a short time ago the editor of
a paper grew tired, of being called a
liar and announced that he-would tell
the truth in the future; and the next
issue contained the following items:—
John Doyle, our grocerymau, is not
doing a good business. His store is
musty; how can he do much?
The Rev. Mr. Style preached 'last
night on charity. His sermon was the
Dave. Cankey died at his home here
last Tuesday. The doctor gave it out
as heart failure, but whiskey was the
real cause.
Married—Miss Sylvia Rhodes and
James Collins last Tuesday at the
Baptist Parsonage, by Rev. Gorden.
The bride is a very ordinary girl who
doesn't know any more about cooking
than a jack rabbit and never helped
her mother three days in her life.
She is not a beauty by any means and
has a gait like a duck.' The groom is
an up-to-date loafer, He has been living oft' the old folks at home all his
life and is not worth his salt. It will
be a hard life.

Victoria, April 3rd.—The stricter
enforcement of the Government
Liquor Act since Hon. A. M. Man-
son assumed the attorney-generalship has resulted in cutting
infringements of the law down to
the lowest point reached since
British Columbia espoused moderation. While bootlegging . still
continues, and will, the official
records show a. much cleaner reoord.

Continued from page 1.
The minutes of the previous
meeting' were read and approved ou
' a motion by Mr. Seidelman, which
was seconded by Mr. Callanan.
The minutes ot! the Special meeting
held on Monday, March 26th. were!
read and adopted on a motion by
Mr. Seidelmau, whioh was seconded
by Mr. Jones.
The secretary's report stated
that tho wages that were paid
before the cut went into effect to
employees of the League would be
the rate under the latest scale, the
Finance Committee having met a
few days previous and so decided.
In connection with the Mine Pool
Room, it would be advisable to rearrange the hours of keeping open
aud so do away with some of the
overhead now being carried. A
Concert was proposed and had not
been talked of for some time. It
would be conducted by Dr. Harper
and under the auspices of the
League. Dr. Harper's pupils and
Mrs. Kelley's dancing kiddies would
supply the numbers, and would not
cost more than twenty-live dollars
at the outside to put on. Fare
boxes for use in connection with the
pool room had been ordered. The
Secretary requested the Council to
endorse the suggestion ...that the
League's books be audited every
three months by a member of the
Granby Company's accounting staff
Mr. Fred Bardwell had done this
work ou the last occasion the books
were audited, had given satisfaction
and would undoubtedly do so again.
Tne roller skates had been tested on
the gym floor and as a result the
idea of using them, there had been
discarded. Re-garding the proposed membership drive, the date
of the smoker should be set for
April 25th. In the meantime it
should be' advertised in every
possible way.
In connection with the Concert,
it was moved by Mr. Seidelman
and seconded by Mrs. Dwyer that
it be held on April 11th. as' suggested. It was moved byN Mr.
Simpson and seconded by Mr. Bla-
nej' that the request of the Secretary to have the books of the
Community League audited every
three months by an official of the
Granby Company's accounting
staff be endorsed.
There was some discussion over
the adjustment of wages, Mr. Selfe
asking for a bigger increase than
he had received under the new
arrangement. It was finally decided on motion of Mr. Simpson
seconded by Mr. Jones, to re-cpn-
sider the adjustment.
There was some discussion over a
suggestion that the billiard and
pool situation in the Becreation
Hall might be handled to good
advantage by a man on a commission basis. Some of the Council
were in favor of this and some
were against. Mr. Selfe asked if
the Finance Committee would
have any objections to his being
present when the matter was discussed. There was somedisoussion
over the time of opening the meet
ings. It was finally decided that
the hour should be 7.30 p.m,
