on Alice Group
Ore was struck ou the Alice
property yesterday in the tunnel
jeing driven to crosscut the newly
liscovered high grade surface
ihowings. The ore was encountered at a depth of about twenty
'eet from the surface and is a high
jrade brittle silver ore, which will
well repay shipping. The strike

ihots the ore vein wilK become
vnore solid. Development work on

jiterest, and if the property conies
jp to expectations, Alice Arm will
possess another shipping mine this
taming winter.

[Verona Showing High
Grade Galena Ore
Tom McBostie, who has been
doing development work on the
Verona property, situated on Lime
Creek, has been successful in developing a fine showing of high
grade galena ore. The vein is from
1 to 3 feet wide. Previous assays
taken from the vein have given
returns of 64.7 ozs. silver, 38.8 lead
and $4.25 gold per ton, and the ore
now encountered has all the appearances of giving higher values.
The Verona is situated only about
'our miles from tidewater and is
ideally located for cheap shipping
of ore.
Working on Beverley
. Louis Beynolds is busily engaged
in driving a tunnel on the Beve'rly,
which is situated a short distance
from Silver City. He expects to
develop a considerable body of ore
in the near future, and is very
optimistic of the property.

Naas Valley Trail Survey
It is understood that the delay in
surveying a route for the Alice
Arm Naas Valley Trail has been
caused by the sickness of Mr.
Suttie, the government locating
engineer. Mr. Suttie has been
sick all summer, but should he recover sufficiently to travel in the
woods the trail will be surveyed;
this fall.

Anyox Public Schools.
The residents of Anyox are
indeed fortunate in having such
admirable facilities available for
the education of the rising generation. A higher plane of education is being reached each year,
until now, the system is almost
perfect. Anyox, like other v new
towns in the province at their
commencement, had an indifferent
system of education, but each year
improvements have been made,
and the children of Anyox can
now receive an education second
to none of any public school in the
province. The Parents-Teachers
Association, which was organized
last year, has been a great boom
to the teachers and also the
parents. It has given the teachers
an opportunity to meet parents of
children attending school, and to
discuss matters pertaining to the
welfare of the children's education.
Much good has resulted since the
Association was formed, and it is
hoped that the good work will be
carried on during the present term.
"The children of today are the
citizens of tomorrow" is a very true
saying. The predominating nations
of the future will be those who are
most highly educated, and Canada
can not afford to be outstripped in
the race. Give the children the
best education possible and the
future of the Dominion is assured.
The Salmon
Fishing Industry.
The Fisheries Commission sitting
at Victoria are trying to devise
ways and means to save the salmon industry for this province.
Several schemes have been advocated by those interested in fishing,
such as the destruction of natural
enemies of the salmon, such as
seals, seagulls, trout, etc. There is
no doubt that enormous quantities
of salmon are destroyed each year
by these natural enemies, especially
by the trout at the spawning
grounds who devour the eggs and
also the young salmon in large
quantities. It is for the govern-
to take drastic action, if necessary,
to save this important industry, for
with the elimination of the salmon
one of the best wealth producers of
the province will be lost forever.
It was shown at Victoria that the
salmon catch is gradually becoming
smaller, despite the fact that more
gear and men are now used than
there were five or ten years ago,
and that the price paid to fishermen is 300 per cent higher than
ten years ago. If nothing is done
to protect the salmon, there is no
doubt that in another ten years,
these wealth producers who flock
to our rivers will all have been
killed. The time to act is now,
before it is too late.
Elks Win Anyox
Ball Championship
Defeats Mine in Final Game
by 1 Run on extra Inning
On Sunday, September 10, the
Elks and Mine met in the fifth and
final game of the Championship
Series, and a grand and glorious
game it was from start to finish,
having to go to the tenth inning
before a decision was reached.

strongest, as follows:

Down 3rd. B. Mealy
Greenwell S. S. Brown
Menzies R. F.      McGammon
Campbell C. F. Carlson
Hunter L, F. Anderson
Both teams played high-class
ball, and the fans no matter which
side they favored can not grumble
about the result. It was anybody's
game, as the score shows, which at
the close of the ninth inning, was
2-2. The Mine had a little hard
luck in the second inning, when
McGammon dropped Greenwell's
fly after having it in his hands,
but such is baseball. Greenwell
made second base on this one,
steals 3rd, and makes home before
side retires.
The Elks had an opportunity for
a double play when Greenwell
stepped over 2nd. base instead of
upon it when he pegged to first.
He put one man out at first, but
the man on second was safe.

1st: Elks: Down, Campbell and
Cody out. Mine: Mealy caught
at first; Brown singles: Moran hit

by Brown, and Whittaker does not
make first, but Greenwell is home,

Mining Active at Stewart
Eighteen properties are being oper-
led in the Stewart district this year,
side the Premier. Thirteen of these
•operties are situated in the Salmon
iver Valley, and the balance in the
,iar Biyer Valley. The activity in
|iis district is due to the exceptional
phness of the Premier mine, and the
g dividends paid out by that coin-
my, and capital is going into the
imp in the hopes of proving up
lofchor mine equal to the Premier.
When Women Had Equality
The modern woman persistently
gitates for equality of the sexes. In
he "good old days" the women were
ertainly on an equal footing when it
ami; to executions. The Newgate
ialenciar, of London, chronicles the
ollowing executions: A hundred years
go a girl wlis hanged at Tyburn for
tealing six penny-worth of ribbons,
vhile another paid the penalty for
ngainy, being "17 years of age and a
>oor country girl." In 1818 a girl of
6 was hanged for passing a countered coin; and as late as 1850 three
comen were executed at York for
llegal operations.
The mill and shaft house at the
)'Brien mine, Cobalt, has been de-
troyed by fire. The estimated loss is
350,000. About 100 men will be
livown out of work.

whether the words had been used
by him, but they certainly did not
represent his intent. Mr. Buzzelle
also asked that a certain statement
which he stated he did not make
be struck out. Mr. Lowry and
Mr. Murdoch both stated that the
minutes were reported correctly
and that the statements objected

seconded by Mr. Noel, the minutes
were adopted and read. For, 7;

The Secretary reported having
forwarded a cheque for $340.00 to
the management of the Alice Arm
Hotel in payment of Summer
Camp accomodation. He also reported on the sending ot the All
Star Team to Prince Rupert at the
request of the Fair authorities for
a baseball series. In connection
with the meeting at the Mine, he
told of having advertised its main
purpose in every possible way and
was pleased to get such a happy
Mr. Murdoch, Chairman of the
Entertainment Committee, told of
the Tennis Club Ball, and that the
committees would meet ou Thurs
day, September 14th, to  discuss
matters connected with it.
A letter was read from J. A.
McGuire, Prince Rupert, asking
the League to co-operate in bringing concert parties to this section.
It was decided to try the proposition out, and if it meets with
success to make it a regular fixture
during the winter months. Letters
from J. Pinder-Moss were read, in
one of which he asked the League
to donate a medal for one of four
subjects in connection with his
technical sohool. The Council decided that the League would give
a prize or prizes after further
investigation. Mr. Armour suggested that a prize of $25 be given
in each case. It was decided to
give medals if anything.
The Mine Hall business was the
main topic of discussion and a big
gathering turned out for the purpose of listening to what was going
to be done. The meeting was
unanimousin favor of the building
as proposed being erected, and a
petition signed by over 200 residents of that section of the
community was submitted, by Mr.
Blundell. On the finish of the
finish of the discussion, the meeting
having endorsed the Mine building
so decisively, Mr. Armour moved a
motion to immediately proceed
with construction. This was seconded by Mr. Rowly.
On it being decided that the
building be gone ahead with, Mr
Armour suggested that the building
committee be appointed' from the
Mine, but the President felt that as
Mr. Warwick had engineered the
matter satisfactorily so far that he
should be sustained in his committeeship in which the Council
concurred, Mr. Warwick to add
parties from the Mine to the committee as he felt necessary.
The question of the Beach building was then taken up, and after
considerable discussion it was
decided to leave the matter to the
matter to the Finance Committee
to deal with.
