Dominion Day
Sports at Anyox
Dominion Day Celebration at
Anyox, was the biggest and best
ever held in the history of the camp.
Prince Rupert sent up Baseball,
Tennis and Billiard teams, also a
Speed Boat and a rather clever
Boxer. Anyox won the baseball
game by the score of II to 6, the
billiard match they also won by
963 points to 903, and Anyox
also won the tennis match. The
Speed Boat Race did not matera-
lize, and the boxing match went to
Prince Rupert.
Owing to a congestion of last
minute copy this week-end, we are
unable to give a complete report of
the sports, but will do so in our
next issue, and also a list of all the
prize winners.

with the Hyder team, winning
both. The score of the morning
game was 7 to 3, and the afternoon
game 16 to 0. Ferguson and Dra-
udson both pitched great ball, aiid
they were strongly supported by
the balance of the team, whose
smart fielding won the admiration
of the large crowd who witnessed
the games.
In the evening the people of
Hyder, entertained the Anyox visitors to a banquet, which was
greatly appreciated by the boys.

Will the young lady who snapped
Mr. F. Brown in his little private

Sweden, and is now serving his
time in the army. Ole expects to
leave for home sometime this year.
A friend of the Alice Arm' merchants called upon them recently,
to demonstrate his friendship, and
perhaps to replenish the family
larder when he arrived home in
Anyox. He bought an assortment
of groceries and green stuff, which
he packed in his handbag. In
making his last' call he purchased
some eggs and olives, the bag being
nearly full, he had considerable
difficulty in getting them in; but
you can't beat a good man, The
trick was did, and upon arriving
home, he showed his friends one of
the finest Alice Arm Salads produced to date.
THE MAN AROUND
TOWN
Rich Strike of Ore
At Anyox
Bill Hanna is reported to have
struck a lead, of first-class copper
jore, containing quartzite and chal-
copyrite, on his claims joining the
Hidden Creek Mine at" Anyox.
The lead is 90 feet wide and has
been stripped for a considerable
distance. It is considered one of
the most important strikes in the
district.
The 1st. of July has come and
gone again, and we are "about
ready to settle down to normal
again. The weather man , was
fairly, good to us, although it was
rather cold for the time of year.
Taking the day's sports all together,. Anyox came up on top by
a big margin. They won at Base.
ball, the boat race was theirs, and
they also held up their end at
tennis and billiards.
Joe Farrell, of Rupert, though,
gave Gibson something to remember for a while. Gibson was
knocked out in the third round.
He was outclassed at all stages of
the game.
The Indian Band played good
music. They have a smart appearance, and their music was enjoyed
by the crowd.
We would have liked to have
seen the Alice Arm and Prince
Rupert people, allowed the grounds
free of charge. Surely, after the
way Alice Arm receives visitors
from Anyox on any occasion, the
least we could do would be to return the compliment. That is the
proper community spirit, and. as
such should not be neglected.
.The dance put on at the hall in
the evening was a great success;
although at supper time, while
some of the dancers got 3 or 4
doughnuts, there were others that
got none at all. '
If anyone had wandered into the
grocery department on June 30th.
theys would have seen a good imitation of the Dempsey-Carpentier
fight. It was just grand whilst
the fruit and vegetables lasted.
Probably some people will wake
up to the fact that even those behind t/he counter are only human
after all, and while they are servants of the public, yet they are
entitled to a little courtesy at
times.
Dempseywon the fight on the
2nd. At least, he must have done
so, because whilst not yet broken,
we are sadly bent; but others have
profited by our bad guessing.
Even Jack Dillon has got his
smile back again. "Otiija" says
Jack spelled Dempsey on the board.
Talking of spirits there were
some kindred one's came up from
Rupert. They even made some of
the Anyox boys talk. There were
others that played remarkable remarkable billiards afterwards. Why
cannot we have the spirits with us
always, without having to buy a
permit. Someone is always taking
the joy out of life.
as Wf
Anyox all star baseball team,
went to Hyder on Sunday morning.
Jimmie Ferguson captained the
team.   They played two games on
the 4th. Both were in favor of
Anyox. Scores wer 7 to 3 and 16
to 0. The boys had a good time,
played good ball, ane were home
again early on Tuesday morning
in time for work.
Pete said that was how the Elk's
were going to play the mine the
next game. Jimmie says that it
cannot be done. We wonder why
those two don't try and get along
any better. Someone suggested
Soothing Syrup, and then again
someone whispered "Johnny Walker," but what's the use.
As a real good comfortable mother for looking after the boys and
keeping them in the narrow path,
why, Harry Fowler the good old
pilot of the '"Awake" is a jewel.
If the girls of Alice Arm don't
hurry up and grab Harry, someone
in Anyox is going to get a rare
prize.
The Elk's held their first meeting
in their new home last Monday.
The boys turned out in good numbers, and two jiew members were
added to the roll.
They are having a picnic at
Silver City on Sunday next, and
are looking forward to seeing the
friends from Alice Arm there.
We are holding no particular
brief for the Editor of the Alice
Arm and Anyox Herald; but from
the tone of his previous editions,
we feel confident that he is on the
right road to a sound common sense
paper for the people of this district,
and it is up' to us, one and all to
try and back him up in his undertaking, by subscribing ourselves,
and also by telling others of the
merits of this, THEIR PAPER.
Pete Draudson was way off in
ini his guessing about the Elk's
team. They started out fine on
Wednesday night and grabbed a
couple of runs in short order, but
after that they failed miserably,
the mine gathering in five runs as
their score. The umpiring ' was
good, especially from those who
had no business to umpire. But
then, some people don't know any
better and must be excused.
Government Road Work
to be Resumed
Work on the Illiance River trail
is to be resumed at an early date,
and some work will also be done on
the Kitsault River trails. The
Homestake Mining Co. is finishing
the trail to the Kitsault Glacier, to
enable them to freight in supplies
and machinery.
Please mail this paper to your
friends and help advertise the camp. ;.,»;r,V .;■:■■'     :.    /'!.'■'    '   V '

Anyox Community League.
That the Dominion Day sports
at Anyox on July 1st. was a grand
success, is admitted by all the
citizens of Anyox and also all the
visitors whose good fortune it was
to be present. The Anyox Community League is to be congratulated on the success they made
of the big celebration. It was the
biggest celebration ever yet undertaken by any organization in
Anyox, and it shows what an
organization can do when it has
the whole-hearted support of the
people. The chief aim of any
organization is to win the confidence of the people and hold it, by
showing them that it is to their
benefit and welfare to support and
help it in every possible manner.
The Anyox Community League
now has the support and confidence of the people of Anyox,
thanks to its tireless councillors
and officers, of which special mention should be made of Mr! F.
Brown, the ' energetic and lively
secretary, as the success of the
Community League is to a great
measure due to the pep and energy
he has displayed since taking office.
It now remains for the officers of
the Community League to retain
the confidence of the people it has
already won, by studying their
interests at all times, and by showing the good sound judgement
in the future as they have in the
past that matter will be an easy
one. Great credit is reflected on
all the officers of the League, in
building up such an organization;
it is a credit to themselves and a
credit to the camp. It is up to the
citizens of Anyox to support the
League and help put some pep into
the rather monotonous life of an
isolated mining camp,
Dutrict Road* and Trails.
We are glad to state in the col-
ums of the Herald this week, that
the government work on the
Illiance trail is going ahead again,
and that some work will also be
done on the Kitsault River trails.
It was an impossibility for the
government to close down all work'
on roads and trails in the Alice
Arm district, without closing down
half the properties that is working.
We probably have less roads and
trails than  any mining camp in
British Columbia, for the amount
of work that has been done on
mining properties and the value
of ore shipped. The prospector
and the small mining operator does
not mind the difficulties of getting
his supplies in over a "goat trail"
for a time, and is always willing to
allow the government a reasonable1
time to appropriate money, and
build the necessary trails; but he
does object to doing it year after
year with no relief in sight. It
has made many a small mining
company pull stakes and move out.
It is always well to remember that
it was the last straw that broke
the camel's back." Alice Arm is
on the eve of big developments.
The ore is in the hills, waiting for
the necessary capital to create it
into wealth, and when that capital
is forthcoming, mines will be developed, mills built, and Alice Arm
will take its rightful place as the
premier mining camp of British
Columbia. For the government to
stop all work on roads and trails
in the face of these facts, would
surely show poor judgement. We
are glad to say that they know
these facts, and they show good
judgement in ordering work tfl be
resumed. Alice Arm is no| a
played out mining camp, and never
will be, the 1,500,000 ozs. of silver
the Taylor Mining Co. has taken
out is only a drop in the ocean.
The big mineral belts of the Kitsault and Illiance Rivers has not
even been scratched. Capital and
competent mining men is what we
need, and when we get them the
future of Alice Arm will indeed be
bright.
Dominion Government Statistics
recently published show that there
was greater unemployment in Vancouver than elsewhere. From
December, 1920, to May, 1921,
approximately $400,000 was paid
out in direct relief, a condition that
should not be necessary in a western community. Have the city
of Vancouver $400,000 worth of
work to show, for the money spent.
The shipbuilding output in Great
Britain during 1920, was the highest ever recorded, amounting to
168 vessels of 2,055,624 tons.
ANYOX GUN CLUB
Last week's shoot of the Anyox
Gun Club, was held on Dominion
Day, instead, of Wednesday, and
formed part of the Community
League's celebration. The shoot:
er's were divided into two classes;
as determined by the club handi-
oappers records. In class A a tie
for first place was the result.
Beckett and Champion each broke
34 birds out of 50. To decide the
tie, each man shot at five birds,
Beokett breaking 3 and Champion
4, winning the event.
In class B, Harry Maun won
first place with 29 birds, and Mrs,
Munroe was second with 21.
Following are the scores, each
contestant shooting at 50 birds,
CLASS A.

Singular Experience
with a Bear.
Mr. Henry Carney, of; Alice Arm,
had a rather unusual experience
with a bear, a few days ago, close
to his ranch by the Illiance River.
He stopped work a few minutes to
pick'some salmon berries, and spied
an exceptionally fine one on lit
branch about three feet away,, he
was just in the act of pulling in
that limb, when someone started to
pull it from the other side. "What
are you doing" says Henry, and
"woof" says Mr.. Black Bear, in a
surprised voioe, and before Henry
could recover from his surprise,
that bear was beating it for the
tall timber as fast as he could go.
Greenville Brass Band
At Anyox, July 1st.
I The Greenville Concert Band,
ably conducted by Fred McKay,
was a feature of the 1st. July celebration at Anyox They played at

evening. The band left expressing
great satisfaction with the way
they had been received.

ALICE ARM HOTEL
RENOVATED
I The Alice Arm Hotel is now
spic and span from basement ■ to
attic, the whole building • has been
thoroughly cleaned, kalsoriiined,
painted and varnished, and everything is now in apple pie order.
A person would go a long way to
find another hotel that is' kept up
as well as the Alice Arm Hotel,
especially in a mining town, where
it is an exception rather than a
rule to keep a clean, wholesome
house. A road has also been made
connecting with the new wharf
road, to the front of the Hotel,
allowing teams to go up with
freight and baggage. The Hotel
has one of the finest and prettiest
views on the coast. Situated on the
hillside above the town, it com.
mands a splendid view of the bay
the town of Alice Arm, and the
majestic snow-capped mountains
in the distance.

The Mineral Province of Western Canada
Has produced minerals valued as follows: Placer Gold, $75,944,203; Lode Gold, $102,753,823: Silver,
$53,668,284; Lead, $46,637,221; Copper, $161,513,864; Zinc, $19,896,466; Coal and Coke, $212,573,492;
Building Stone, Brick, Cement, etc., $32,168,217; Miscellaneous Minerals, $1,037,408; making its mineral
production to the end of 1920 show an , *
Aggregate Value of $706,192,978
The substantial progress of the Mining Industry of this Province is strikingly exhibited in the following
figures which show the value of production for successive five-year periods: For all years to 1895, inclusive,
$94,547,241 for five years, 1896-1900, $57,605,967; for five years, 1901-1905, $96-509,968; for five years, 1906-
1910; $125,534,474; for five years, 1911-1915, $142,072,603; for the five years, 1916-1920, $189,922,725.
Production During last ten years, $331,995,328
Lode-mining has only been in progress for about 25 years, and not 20 per cent of the Provinoe has been
even prospected; 300,000 square miles of unexplored mineral bearing land are open for prospeoting.
The Mining Laws of this Province are more liberal and the fees lower than those of any other Province
in the Dominion, or any Colony in the British Empire. ,
Mineral locations are granted to discoverers for nominal fees.

Mr. Geo. Clothier's
Report for 1920
Mr. George A, Clothier, resident
mining engineer of this district,
reports last year's activities as
follows.
The district is composed of eight
mining divisions—Bella Coola,
Skeena, Queen Charlotte, Naas
River, Alice Arm, Portland Canal,
Stikine. Atlin and Laird—and
includes all the coast, islands and
north-western portion cf the province north of the head of Vancouver Island. Th| Portland Canal
Division has .been increased by a
portion of the Naas River Division.
This year has been in this district
without doubt, a most progressive
one for the mining industry. Prospectors are realizing the fact that
the district affords < unusual advantages for them in every way, and
the increase this year in their
numbers has been apparent.
The number of field engineers
in the district throughout the
year is evidence that the larger
mining companies are alive to the
possibilities of this portion of the
province.
A greatly increased amount of
development work has been done
by the owners of claims, the small
mining operators, and the large
companies, with an encouraging
percentage of favorable results.
The "broker mining operator" has
had, with few exceptions, very
little encouragement, the investing
public wisely preferring to back
up the property that has been
investigated and reported upon by
a reputable mining .engineer, and
whose development will be under
the supervision of a competent
mining man. >
Further exploration of the properties that have come into prominence in the last year or two has
been very gratifying, and the
installation of plants is under way
that will ensure their permanency
as producers.
The following is an estimate of
the output for 1920:
Atlin, Stikine and Laird placers
produced 6,300 ozs. of gold.
Granby Co. at Anyox produced
818,534 tons, yielding 9,160 ozs.
gold, 439,238 ozs. silver and 25,304,
400 lbs. copper.
Golskiesh Mines, Anyox, produced 3,550 tons, yielding 585 ozs.
gold, and 1,625 ozs. silver.
Dolly Varden Mine, Alice Arm,
produced 8,700 tons, yielding 870,
000 ozs. silver,
Esperanza Group, Alice Arm,
produced 18 tons, yielding 4 ozs.
gold and 3,788 ozs. silver.      .
Premier Mine Stewart, produced
850 tons, yielding 2,701 ozs. gold
and 92,173 ozs. silver.
Patterson Group, Porcher Island,
produced 17 tons, yielding 50 ozs.
gold and 30 ozs. silver.
Ikeda Mines, Ikeda Bay, produced 141 tons, yielding 26 ozs.
gold, 290 ozs. silver and 21,088 lbs.
copper. .'•,'
Drum Lummon Mines, Hartley
Bay, produced 32 tons, yielding 31
ozs. gold, 540 ozs. silver and 39,600
lbs. copper.
Surf Inlet Mine, Surf Inlet, produced about 100,000 tons, yielding
50,000 ozs. gold, 30,000 ozs. silver
and 800,000 lbs. copper.
The above returns are for the
full year, with the exception of the
Granby Consolidated Mining, Smelting & Power Co., Ltd. and the
Taylor Mining Company, whose
outputs for December are estimated,
but which will be very close to the
final figures. Unfortunately, I
have been unable to get returns
from the Belmont Surf Inlet Mines,
Ltd., in time for this report, but
they may be considered as equaling
last year.
The tonnage mined has increased
by nearly. 200,000 tons, due to the
Granby and Dolly Varden Mines.
Though Granby's gold production
has nearly doubled, yet the shortage in placer gold hold the total
about the same as 1919. Silver
has increased over 500,000 ozs., due
to the splendid output of the Dolly
Varden mines and the notable
increase of nearly 100,000 ozs. from
Anyox. Copper production is
greater by about 5,750,000 lbs., due
to the Granby Company, the aggregate of the small shippers being
about the same as last year.
