Alice Arm awoke on Monday
morning tQ find a large party of
distinguished visitors in their
' midst. The party oonsisted of F.
C, Wade, K. C, agent-general for
British Columbia in London, Hon.
A. M. Manson, attorney-general,
Fred. Stork, M.P. for Skeena, Hon.
Dr. W. H. Sutherland, minister of
public works, Hon. E. D. Barrow,
minister of agriculture, Capt. Ian
MacKenzie, Jf.P; for Vancouver,
P. Philip, supt. of publio works
department, A. L. Carruthers,
district engineer, C. R. McDonald,
Kamloops, R. J. Stewart, factory
inspector.
The party arrived from Stewart
on Sunday evening, at 10.30 p.m.
and were .around town bright and
early on Monday morning taking
in the sights and inspecting numerous samples of high grade ore
which are always on exhibition for
visitors. A trip was made to the
Esperanza mine, and the whole
party were much surprised at the
quantity of high gradeore on that
property. Dr. Sutherland also inspected the site for the proposed
bridge across the Kitsault River.
A meeting was held directly
after lunch, in the Royal Bank
building, relative to the building of
the Alice Arm Naas Valley trail,
at which the exeoutive committee
of the Alice Arm Citizens' Association talked the matter over with
the minister of public works, and
other members of the party.
C. P. Riel called the meeting to
order, and explained to Dr. Sutherland the necessity of building a
trail to provide an outlet for the
valley to tidewater and also connect up the Alioe Arm trail system
with the whole of northern B. C.
T W. Falconer also spoke in
favor of building a trail, and later
when conditions warranted to
widen it into a wagon road. He
said that at one time there, were
over seventy members belonging to
the Farmers' Institute in the valley
but because transportation was not
provided nearly all had left the
. oountry.
Dr. Sutherland in reply said that
he realized that the only possible
way to Open up the country was to
build roads and trails. The money
had not yet been appropriated for
tnis work, but it may yet~be' possible to do something this summer.
He said he liked to meet the
citizens of the various districts and
discuss their problems with them,
and he realized that the north
needs developing, especially after
the northern members hod-extolled
this great north oountry down in
Viotoria;
Hon. A. M. Manson. said that
we should remember that we had
a small population in British Columbia and that the money is
limited. If the government were
to do half what was asked of them
eaoh year, it '■ would cost the
province the sum of twenty million
dollars. It was not the policy of
the government to try and hold
any part of the province; but to do

After the exoitement attending
the visit of the Ketchikan ball
team to Anyox and the return
visit of the All Stars to the
Alaskan town, where the boys
broke even, winning one of the two
games played there, coming out of
the long end of the Series with
three games to one loss, the Second
stage of the local season commenced at the beginning of the week.
Reversing the playing nights of
the baseball, and soccer schedules,
football is now played on Mondays
and Thursdays, while the baseball,
takes the nights formerly devoted
to soccer.
On Monday night, June 10th,
the Mine and the Elks put up a
fine exhibition of sOccer and finished a hard fought game with the
honors even. '_The game was fast
and replete with individual plays
of no mean order, .While there were
many excellent examples of combination plays to thrill the interested spectators.
Tuesday evening started the
second half of the season's baseball
sohedule and an exciting game was
the result. The old rivals for
sport honors, the Mine and the
Smelter, fought a strenuous fight
for the greater part of the game,
every run being well earned until
it came to the first half of the
sixth, when with the bases full and
nobody, out, Capt. Davis, of the
Smelter sent in a pinch hitter, who
connected bravely with the ball.
Then the balloon went up and it
stayed up, until a number of errors,
wild throws and passed balls gave
six runs to the Smelter. Up to
the seventh inning the score had'
been five to one in favor of the
Mine, but the six runs made so
easily by the Smelter batters and
the lack of support given Ferguson
gave the game to the Smelter, the
Mine being unable to get a tally in
the last half of the seventh.
Loseke pitched good ball for the
Smelter up to the sixth inning,
when he retired himself and Mattix
was put in.

Mining News
of Alice Arm
Mr. A. E. Egap* who has been
doing development work ou the'
Ourah.group of claims, for the past
few weeks, arrived <in town this
week. This property joins the
Wolf mine on the west and north,
and consists of two claims and a
fraotioii. The Ourah was staked
by B. J. Carpenter and A. E.
Egan, in July, 1916.
Five large open trenches have
been driven in the, original lead,
showing up the ore body for a
distance of 500 feet in length.
The lead is very large, the extent
of which has not yet been determined, but-stripping will probably
be continued this fall. Work done
on the property this season has
been concentrated on a new ledge,
which is located 400 feet west of
the No. 1 ledge, and has been traced on the surface a distance of 400
feet. Samples of ore taken from
the No. 1 ledge have averaged 10
ozs. silver, 3 per cent, copper, and
from $2 to $3 gold per ton.    ,
The property was discovered by
B. J. Carpenter, "who did considerable work on it in 1916, and who
met his death at Daisy Lake, in
the Lillooet Country, in the spring
of 1920, while trapping, having
fallen through the ice and no trace
of the body was ever discovered.
As a result of the game July 11,
the teams are now well bunched
and some interesting games are
going to bewitnessed by the fans
before the seoond half of' the
season's schedule is very far advanced, The standing how shows the
Elks and Smelter with four wins,
and five losses eaoh, while the Mine
has won five'and lost four.

It is understood that a deal has
been practically completed for the
sale of the Esperanza mine, by E.
Elge and associates, owners of the
property, and a syndicate composed
Of Anyox men. Mr. Elge left on
Thursday* for Prince Rupert, to
complete negotiations, but up the
time of going to press, no definite
word had been received that the
property had been said. The terms
offered by E. Elge and associates
are $35,000 for the property,
$10,000 cash and the balance in
two yearly payments.
Jack Hauber came down this
week from the Lucky Strike group
where he has been busy
surface stripping the ore. Wm.
McLean is still working on the
property. A report of this property will be given nexF week.

The visit of the members of the
Provincial and Federal governments and also the officials of the
Public Works Department of
Victoria, gave a lot of satisfaction
to the people of Alice Arm this
week, and those members of the
two governments making a tour of
the province are to be commended
in the manner they are acquiring
information in regard to the wants
of the various districts they are
visiting. This section of the
province is the newest part to be
opened up for development, and
our wants are many; many more
in fact than the older settled parts
to the south of us. Nothing but
good can come from such a visit
as was paid us this week, and
while the stay might have been
longer, a lot of valuable information
was, however, obtained by the
party regarding the needs of this
district, the result of which we
hope to see bear fruit in the near
future. There is no doubt that
any suggestion that is endorsed by
the people of Alice Arm will in
the future receive a sympathetic
hearing, now that the Minister of
Public Works has personally visited the district. We hope that he
will be able to pay us a visit each
year, and that he will be able to
visit the upper Kitsault and other
sections in this locality, so that he
will have a still better idea of the
difficulties under which a pioneer
camp labors in regard to. transportation.

the best possible for the whole.
Regarding the Dolly Varden Railway, he said that the people of
Alice Arm could rest assured that
the government did not intend to
let the railway stay idle to the
detriment of the whole country,
and that means would be found to
operate the railway. The local
member, Mr. H. F. Kergin, has
taken the matter up, and the government are prepared to back him
up.
Mr. H. F. Kergin said he was
trying all the time to get the government to take a greater interest
in this portion of the province, and
he anticipated that results would
soon be forthcoming. ,It was'nt
always wise to jump into a thing
too quick, or criticism would follow
later on. He spoke in favor of
connecting up the trail system of
Alice Arm with the interior, via
the Naas Valley, so that it would
be possible to travel anywhere into
the interior from Alice Arm.       ^
C. P. Riel then asked the Minister of Public Works to send a
competent engineer over the proposed route to the Naas Valley this
summer, and thoroughly survey a
route.   This request was granted.
The party left for Anyox about
2 p.m., where an inspection was
made of the big plant. The
smelter was. visited throughout
from the ore bins through to where
the copper is moulded into slabs
ready for shipping.     The power

house was inspected, and a flying
visit made to the mine, but owing
to the limited time it was not
possible for the party to go underground. A visit was, however,
paid ,to the Coke Plant, and the
party arrived at the wharf just ten
minutes before the boat sailed at 8
p.m' for Prince Rupert, thoroughly
tired and hungry, but full of enthusiasm for the mining industry of
the north. The big plant at
Anyox employing around 1000
men, was a revelation to several
members of the party, and it showed to thern the vast possibilities of
the industry in this section.
Mr. Kergin, who was with them
at Stewart, Alice Arm and Anyox,
and conducted them throughout,
gave them no rest, they were on
the jump all the time, and were no
doubt glad to' board the boat at
Anyox, and take a few hours
sleep on the way to Prince Rupert.
The party will make a four of
ijhe G.' T. P. Railway as far as
Prince George, before returning to

Oil Used at No. 2 Power House, Anyox
A good many of the residents of Anyox have often wondered what
amount of fuel is consumed ealch month during the winter by the
furnaces at the big No. 2 Power House, on the banks of Falls Creek.
Below, we give a table of the number of barrels of oil used each month,
