Silver Bar Company Starts
Operations
The Silver Bar Mining Co. commenced operations this week,
building camps on the Silver Bar
property, situate on - the north-
, oast fork of the Kitsault River.
A. McGuire is in ohargo of operations and it is hoped to have the
camps ready iu time for the
winter's work.
lr
Esperanza Shipping pre
The Esperanzaus shipping about
fifty tons of high grade ore to the
Tacoma smelter today. The ore
is now on the government wharf
awaiting the arrival of the boat.
This is the first shipment of ore
made by the new owners.
Alice Property Working
Development work on the Alice
property commenced this week.
Work will be concentrated on J>he
.ai.e*x..steikarf.b,igh,grjdajM.=reni.dft
a few weeks ago, with a view of
determining the size of the body.
Properties Active near Town
Considerable aotivity is going on
on a number of mining properties
in the immediate vicinity~of the
town of Alice Arm, and" from all
appearances several properties will
be operating in this neighbourhood
during the coming winter.
Big Strike on Beverley
Louis Reynolds, owner of the
Beverly group, which is situated
aoross'the bay, a, short distance
from tide water, reports striking a
rich lead of high grade silver ore
and galena ou -that property.
Considerable stripping has been
done and a vein of ore 40 feet wide
has been uncovered. Stripping
along the vein has J)een done for a
distance of about 100 feet,. Work
on driving a tunnel is now being
commenced in order to strike the
ore body at depth. Some fine
specimens of ore have been taken
from the property and it is very
probable that it will quickly develop into a shipping mine, due to its
close proximity to tide water.
 i ! \
Fox Group Promises Good
Development of the Fox group
of olaims situate at the Kitsault
Glaoier, and joining the Home-
stake on the east side, is being
undertaken by 0. Flint and A.
Davidson. A 30-ft. crosscut
tuntiel has been driven on the
property and a drift six feet in
length has been driven on the vein,
Alice Arm Ore
for London
Samples of ore from the different
mining properties in the Alioe Arm
district for exhibition purposes at
the British Columbia House, in
London, are rather slow in coming
in. A beautiful specimen of high
grade silver ore has been reoeive'd
from'the Dolly Varden „ mine, and
it is hoped that owners' of properties in the district will also bring in
samples as soon as possible, so that
the collection can be forwarded to
London this year.
Samples of ore from the upper
Kitsault can be left at Camp 8 and
arrangements will be made by the
Citizens' Association to have them
brought down. Samples should be
about twenty pounds weight each,
aud all kinds of ore is wanted, including silver, copper, zinc; galena,
molybdenum, etc., the idea being to
show the various kinds of ore contained in the district.
It is hoped that the owners of
claims will make a. special effort to
bring out samples, as the future ot
the camp depends upon the publicity that it is given on the outside.
.English-capital'is-seeking..mining
properties all the time, and several
properties have been bonded by
London capitalists in the province
during the last few months. Big
copper properties in northern Manitoba has also recent,y been bonded
by them, and if we are to keVp
pace with other camps we have got
to show investors what we have.
Bring your samples in,now, so that
the shipment can be made this fall.
Anyox Couple Married
On Saturday, August 19th, at 8 p.m.
Mr. James Doyle and Miss Jessie Kidd
Heggie, both of Anyox, were united in
marriage by the Rev. J. B. Gibson, of
the Anglican Church. The bridesmaid
was Miss Florrie M. Eld, and the
groomsman was Mr. Edward Wilson.
A large number of beautiful presents
were given, both being well known in
Anyox.
with very encouraging results.
Samples of ore taken, from the
drift, have assayed 4 per cent,
cop'per, 3 ozs silver aud $1 gold
per ton. y ■.        ..     .
Open cuts have also'been driven
below the tunnel, 11 feet in depth,
which shows the vein at this point
to be 4 feet wide of solid ore. An
open cut is now being made across
the vein above the tunnel and it
shows that the ore body is at least
30 feet Wide, but as the cut is not
yet coippleted it is not known how
wide the ore body is at that point.

Anyox Football
A team of fohtballers represent-
ing^Anyox and going by the name
of Grancoes, met a team on Sunday night representative of a crew
on construction work of the
Storage Dam, who were called the
Damcoes.'
A good sized crowd was out to
witness the game, which was
'somewhat slow in starting owing
to the absence of a ball and the
difficulty of Capt. Simmonds of the
tribe in getting a team together.
Bill Robertson, good old sport,
came to the assistance of the
Damcoes, filling out the team by
playing outside left.
The waiting for the game to
start was made much more .pleasant by the presence of the Anyox
Brass Band, under Bandmaster
Varnes, who delighted the audience with some excellent pieces of
music. .
The Grancoes had a little the
best of the argument all the way
through, being in better condition

Optimism is the secret of the
greatness of the Anglo-Saxon race.
It is the secret of the success of
any business, and the prosperity of
any community depends entirely
upon the optimism of .the inhabitants. In the past, when things
looked worst, the supreme efforts
of the British people carried them
through. It was proven in the
Nepoleonic wars; It was proven
in the late war, and the British
race throughout the world are
again bracing themselves for the
supreme effort that will bring the
old-time prosperity again to the
Empire. It was the bull-dog grit
and optimism of the early settlers
on the rocky coasts of New
England and Nova Scotia that
carved homes out of the wilderness
and laid the foundation of that
great nation to the south of us* and
also the vast and rich Dominion in
which we live and form a part.
It was that same spirit that urged
the prairie schooners across the
prairies before the advent of the
railways, and which spread the
English language from the Artie
Circle to the Gulf of Mexico. It
is this' temacity shown by our forefathers that is again coming to the
fore, now that conditions throughout the world are more or less
bad, and it is up to us all to help
in the good work, to pull together
for the good of the community, the
province, and the spacious and
splendid Dominion of Canada, in
which we live, and of which we
are citizens. It is up to the people
of Alice Arm -especially to pull
together and help to better conditions in the camp. It is in the
interests of everyone to boost the
camp along; to advertise its wonderful mineral resources and to
attract capital to the camp. Let
us strive to get other mining properties working besides the Dolly
Varden—that property will work
without our help. There are other
properties in this district that is just
as rich or richer than the Dolly
Varden, and only awaits development to prove the fact. More
publicity is what we need, and it
up to the people of Alice Arm to
help the Herald in this work all
they can.
Fire Escapes for Public
Buildings
Constable Cameron, • who is
Assistant Fire Warden for the
Alioe Arm district has officially
notified the owners of hotels and
rooming houses that proper fire
escape facilities must be provided
in the buildings occupied by them
and used by the public. The Provincial Government is determined
that all public buildings must conform with the requirements of the.
Fire Marshall's Act, passed at the
last session of the House.
During the past ten years, 26,000
human beings have lost their lives
by tire in Canada, and the passing
of the above Act is a sign that the
Provincial Legislature is alive to
the seriousness of the situation.
Mining Syndicate
Formed at Hyder
A syndicate has been formed \ih
Hyder.to take over aud develop the
Titan property consisting of ten
claims situated at the head of Fish
Creek. The property has; been
capitalized at $200,000 and subdivided into 20,000 units at a price
of $10 each. The Fitzgerald Bros,
being the original owners of the
claims, will retain a majority block
of the units. Development work
has already commenced, a orew of
four men being at work building a
trail and constructing a camp large
enough for the accomodation of ten
men. $ r ■   ■
Consistent advertising gets the
business.
Catholic Church Hold
their Annual Picnic
The annual pionic of the Catholic
Church, Anyox, was held on
Thursday, August 17th, at Larkum
Island, when more than fifty members of the Church and their friends
spent a very pleasant arid enjoyable
day.
The boats carrying the happy'
throng left the wharf at 10 a.m.
aud on arrival at the Island near
the sawmill preparations were
made for lunch. Willing workers
soon had all the good things spread
out, and the ladies of the Church
deserve great praise for supplying
such an abundance of good things
to eat. When everyone had been
satisfied, sports of various kinds
were the order of the day, and boat
riding, berry picking, bathing, etc.
were indulged in.
The evening meal was served in
the Mill Building, and the trip was
then made homewards, and the
singing, jolly bunch arrived' at" the
wharf at 7 p.m., tired, but supremely happy. /
PATENTS
Patents for inventions were first
granted in England by a statue passed:
in 1623.-: These, were the first patents
ever issued, and provided much-needed
stimulus to invention, as they assured
an inventor of protection in his idea.
The first, patent legislation passed in
the United States was the Patent Act
of 1790.

Shower Given for
Popular Anyox Bride
- A miscellaneous shower was held
on Thursday evening, August 20th,
by Mrs. C. Wing and Mrs. A.
Morton, at the residence of the
former, in honor of Mrs. M. T.
Ranson, on the oooasion of her
forthcoming marriage to Mr. A.
B. Wing. Mrs. Ranson was the
recipient of many beautiful gifts
from a host of friends she has
made during her residence in
Anyox.
The early part of the evening
was spent in playing cards. Mrs.
Harrington carrying off the honors
at whist, and Mrs. Bagwill was the
leading lady at bridge.
- After the card games, the guests,
to the number of twenty-six sat
down to a dainty supper, The
party broke up in the "wee sma
oors" with the singing of "She's
a jolly good fellow" and '"Auld
Lang Syne," Mrs. Buzzelle accompanying the choruses on the piano.
The Perplexed Editor
"Getting out a high-class family
journal," said the editor, "is no picnic.
If I print jokes, folks say I am silly—
if I don't, they say I am too serious.
If I publish original matter they say t
lack variety—if I publish things from
other .papers they say I am too lazy to
write. If I don't go to church they
say I am a heathen—if I do go I am a
hypocrite. If I stay in the office, I
ought to be out rustling for news—if I
rustle for news, I am not attending to
business at the office. If; I wear old
clothes, they say I am a sloven—if I
wear new clothes, they are not paid
for. What in thunderation is a poor
editor to do anyway.? Like as not,
someone will say I swiped this from
an exchange.   So I'did.''-- '
Will Build Concentrator for
Granby Co. at Anyox
. A. Cole, of El Pasco, Texas, was here
the first of the week, says the Grand
Forks Gazette, making an inspection
of the remains of the Granby smelter.
It is understood'that he has charge of
the construction of the large concentrator for the Granby at Anyox, and
was here inspecting the equipment to
see what could be used.
Fines fo Fire Bugs
The Interior country has suffered
considerably this year from fires, and'
everyone starting fires without a permit is being hauled into court and
fined ten dollars and costs. Numerous arrests have been mode.
He was Told Where to Go.
A man "butted in" at a waiting line
before the railroad ticket window at
New York and the men who were in a
hurry glowered. \
"I want a ticket for Boston," said
the man, and he put 50 cents under
the wicket.
"You can't go to Boston for 50
cents" returned the ticket seller.
"Well then," asked the man, "where
can I go for 60 cents?"
And each of the fourteen men in
that waiting line told him where he
could go.
Owing to the ruling of the Signal
Corps, United States Army, that code
messages will not be accepted for
transmission over the cable to Alaska,
a telegraph clerk recently refused- to
take a message for Nome which read:
"Third Epistle of John, verses 13 and
14." The sender said he figured he
could get his message in the limit of
the ten-word special rate, the despatch
being designed to notify his son that
he would soon arrive in Alaska. The
Bible text indicated has these words:
I have many things to write, but I
will'not with pen and ink write unto
thee, but I trust I shall shortly see
thee, and we shall speak face to face:"

Good Fishing on Naas
River this Year
Constable D. S. Cameron and
family, arrived home on Monday's
boat. Constable Cameron has
spent the past two months on the
Naas River and Portland Canal
district, where he has had charge
of the Fishery work.
Five sudden deaths took place
during a period of live weeks, four
drowning accidents, three white
men and one Indian, and one Japanese who died as a result of
drinking wood alcohol.
The fishing season has been the
best for several years, all the canneries putting up large stocks.
Gill net fishermen made from $50
to $150 per week, a pleasant
contrast from the lean seasons of
the past few years.
Of the 304 licences issued this
year, 39 were held by white men,
159 by Japs, and 106 by Indians.
These figures show a decided
increase in the number of white
men fishing in the Naas River this
year.
The Herald is the premier advertising medium of the north coast.

The Mine Baseball Team
Good old Mine team, working fine,
Playing the game all the time;
Yes, you bet that cup looks fine
Upon the hill of Hidden Creek Mine.
For instance, when Ferguson is pitchin
His support is always with him,
All on their toes, and toeing the line,
Ready to get the ball in time;
Their peg is sure without a doubt:
The first thing you hear, the runner
is out,    ,
And then the Mine rooters all start to
shout.
For instance when Pete is pitching,
His support is always missing,
And if by chance they should be there
Then poor old Pete goes up in the air;
The infield all start crabbing,
The outfield all get ragging;
The first thing you hear, the runner is
clear,
And over the home plate he runs
like a steer;
Then you will hear the Elks rooters say:
Wake up fellers I Dont fade away!
It's no use crabbing, you all know it's
true;
The old Mine team is too good for
you.
The  same when the Smelter were
playing,
And Bennie Fitssputrick was pitching;
He would pitch good ball at times,
But the first baseman was. missing,
And if by chance he should be there,
He would peg third with an awful
scare; .
It would drop six feet short or away
overhead;
And over the home plate where he
left just before,
Which means one more run' for the
old Mine score;
It's no use crabbing, you all know
its true,
The old Mine colors are the white and
blue. .
Difft's the Mine do, go in with a smile,
Pick up the bat, then hear them
crack;
The crack of the ball against the Mine
bat;
Then see the outfielder running away
back;
He finds its too late for the runner is
back;
Back to the plate which means one
more,
Yes, one more run for the old Mine
score;
Then you will hear the Mine rooters
shout;
Good old Mine team that's playing the
game,
For the third year now you've been
doing the same,
Never crabbing, but playing the game,
That's why yon play in the Anyox
name.
Good old Mine team, working fine,
Playing the game all the time;
Yes, you bet that cup looks fine,
Upon the hill of Hidden Creek Mine.
