Talented Artistes Entertain Large Audience
Variety Concert
The Variety Concert under the
auspices of the Vestry of Christ
Church was held in the Recreation
Hall on Friday February 25th,
and like the Benefit Concert held in
January was well attended which is
the biggest remuneration the public
can give to those who offer their
services and talent so freely. The
concert started well on time with a
march by the membersof The Anyox
Bund under the leadership of Mr. J.
J. H. Varnes.
The brief resume given here as
the various numbers were called on
the programme where exceptionally
good and all were encored. Mr. J.
L. Anderson sang "The Floral
Dance," followed by Mr. W. E.
Yard in a monologue, "The Madman." Next came a Violin Duet,
rendered by Messrs. Armstrong and
Kania. This was followed by a solo
"If I might come to you," by Mrs.
The Rev. J. S. Brayfield at this
point addressed the audience present
and extended to them his hearty
thanks for the way the people of
Anyox had supported the artistes
appearing. At the same time offering regrets that the programme
could not be followed in rotation as
shown, this was due to the sickness
of some of the artistes.
Miss Kathleen Bruggy next
appeared giving a Spanish Dance.
This was exceptionally well executed
and met with loud applause. She
obliged with an encore. Mr. /. F.
Eve gave a solo, followed by ;i solo
"Nivana" by Mr. J. Hegarty.
Next to appear was Dr. Trefry in a
monologue, "The Negro Parson,"
this was the Doctor's first appearance in Anyox in giving a turn at a
public concert. His impersonation
of a negro parson was good and
thoroughly enjoyed. From now on
his services will be eagerly sought
Miss Irene Bruggy gave a Chinese
Dance and was accompanied on the
piano by Miss Kathleen Bruggy.
At the conclusion she was given a
big ovation by the audience who
appreciated her clever dancing. At
the conclusion of the dance she
recited a Chinese verse which showed
that she is also skilled as an elocutionist. Mr. W. Murdoch next
gave a solo. This was followed by
a five minute interval, during which
the Anyox Band rendered a selection.
After the Selection Mr. W. E.
Yard gave a Monologue, entitled,
"Thirty Pieces of Silver." Mr. Yard
representing "Judas" the acting and
delivery of this sacred drama was
very creditably done.
Miss Kathleen Bruggy next gave
I a piano solo "Twilight Dreams,"
i by Leo. Friedman which was exceed-
, ingly well rendered.
j Mr. J. R. Mitchell was next to
i appear and gave two humorous
j songs. Mrs. T. Pinckney rendered
a solo, followed by an Acrobatic
i Dance by Miss Kathleen Bruggy,
A Big Sporting Night
in Store
The biggest sporting event of the
season or any other season will be
held at Anyox Beach Gymnasium
on Friday March 25th. under the
auspices of the B. P. 0. Elks.
Diok Stubbs, the well known
local wrestler will wrestle J. M.
Brown, of New Westminster, who
is ooming north for the occasion.
Brown held the 145 lb. ohampion-
ship for two years, 1923-24, and
retired on account of a bruised
collarbone. In twenty-four matches he invariably obtained a fall
within two minutes, thus winning
tho match. The record of Dick
Stubbs is too well known for mention.
Battling Gurvich of Prinoe
Rupert will box J. 0. Kirk of
Anyox. These boys are in the
150 lb. class, and are both fast and
carry a big wallop.
Billy Reynolds and Jack Barnes,
135 lbs. will also box. Numerous
other events will be staged, a full
programme will be advertised at a
later date.
Aspeoial 18 ft. ring will be

she was accompanied on the piano
by her sister Miss Irene Bruggy,
these two little girls are to be complimented very highly for their talent
and skill, and the interest shown in
appearing in a public performance in
Anyox. The end of a successful
evening was brought to a close by
a selection from the band followed
by "God Save the King."
Little Miss "Bubbles" Eve, who
was dressed as Charlie Chaplin,
posted the numbers of the programme as they appeared, and her
clever impersonation was a featured
of the evening..
The artistes were accompanied on
the piano by Mrs. A. R. Kent, with
the exception of Mr. J. R. Mitchell
who was accompanied by Mr. Gar-
ton Crow.
The Rector and Vestry of Christ

appreciation and thanks to all those
who helped to make this affair such
an enjoyable evening.
The Woman's Auxiliary of Christ
Church entertained the artistes at the
conclusion of the Concert with
The S. S. Prince George made
her first trip into Anyox on Thursday, after her annual general overhaul in Rupert. Many pleasing
and artistic improvements have been
made in this vessel. The newsagent's stand and bar have been
removed and combined into one on
the top deck outside the smoking
room. This alteration has given
additional space to the smoking
room. The music room has been
fitted with a new hard wood floor,
covered with blue Chinese rugs
This will be a very popular place
with the passengers who care to
dance, and one of the latest ortho-
phonic 5-tube power gramophones
will be installed in the near future.
The railings between decks and
approaching the dining room are
decorated with Canada's national
emblem, the maple leaves. These
are profusely hung at an angle

God Save the King;
The above programme was well
received and everything went off
without a hitch, Christy Madsen
is a marvel on the piano and accompanied the singers delightfully.
There were three intervals for the
distribution of refreshments and
hot dogs.
A great deal of oredit is due to
the committee and the instructors
for the energy they displayed in
getting the programme together
and no less to the artists who took
part in the programme.
Mining Operations At
Wolf Recommenced
Elks' Basketball Team Win
From Celtics
The Celtics suffered another defeat at the hands of the Elks, 27-24
on Wednesday March 2. It took
the Students about ten minutes to
locate the basket in the first half
but when they started they soon
drew up even. The second half
was fast and exciting with only one
or two baskets separating the teams,
Lindgren with his long shots from
centre starred for the Celtics. Gordon and Stewart collected the points
for the Elks and Stewart and Bruce
played a strong defence game.
Mining has been re-commenced
at the Wolf mine, near the town of
Alice Arm by Messrs J. Fiva and P.
Peterson. This property was
closed down for a few months while
the above were driving- the new
tunnel at the Toric mine and which
was recently completed.
Stoping of ore is being carried on
at the Wolf ,and the stope will be
carried through to the surface, a
distance of about 70 feet, so that
better ventilation can be obtained.
No shipment of ore will be made
until the snow is off the Dolly Varden railway at least, and then shipping depends upon the price of
silver. As soon as silver reaches a
level that will pay for shipping it
will be done.
Option Taken on
LaRose Mine
London Corporation Involved
An option has been taken on the
LaRose Mine by G. R. Banoroft
and associates. The price is iu
excess of #175,000. An examination will he made as soon as possible, and if satisfactory the option
will be taken up and development
of the mine on a big scale will be
It is understood that Mr. Bancroft represents London capital,
and.ample funds are available for
any programmeof development and
equipment that the mine warrants.
Mr. Bancroft recently successfully negotiated a deal whereby the
Sebakwe, a subsidiary of the Selukwe corporation of London, took
over the National Silver mines at
Stewart. He had charge of the
work there which resulted iu striking the ore body. He formerly
represented tlie Tonopah Mining
Co. of Nevada in Canada, and had
charge of the work on the Mandy
mine, which is at The Pas, Manitoba.
The La Rose is counted among
the most promising properties in
the Alice Arm district. It cousists
of four olaims and is owned by the
LaRose Mining Co. whose head
office is iii Prince Rupert. It is
situated iu the Kitsault Valley and
is less than two miles from the
Dolly Varden Railway.
Several shipments of ore have
been made, and development work
done in the last two years has
proven that the mine contains much
high grade ready for mining, in
addition to a big tonnage of milling
A few years ago a shipment of
twenty-two Ions was made, which
gave returns of nearly 300 ozs.
silver per ton.
Last year a shipment of forty
tons of ore was made, which yielded
177 ozs. silver and #4.35 per ton.
Considerable underground work
has been done. A good sled road
provides transportation to the
Dolly Varden Railway, and with
active development work it should
not be long before it becomes a
steady producer.
The operation of the LaRose to
capacity will stimulate mining, in
the district. The directors are to
be congratulated ou interesting

Missed Holes is Cause
of Many Accidents
Although the year is still young
plans are being made for extended
mining operations in the Alice
Arm district this year. It is the
belief of many that this year will
witness the commencement of
earnest efforts to develop the camp
on a scale far beyond what has
been accomplished in the past.
Alice Arm is at present receiving
far more notice than has been our
lot in the past. Every new move
is being watched with interest.
The Vancouver press and mining
journals are realizing that the public desire news of our activities,
and they are giving liberal space to
our happenings. The mining
world in general, realize that we
possess vast potential minera
wealth, and that a virgin field of
unbounded possibilities is on the
eve of being thoroughly developed.
Development to date has been
marked with unusual success.
The development of the big ore
body at the Toric, and the discovery at depth of ore on the LaRose,
together with the Silver Cord,
LeRoy and others have awakened
interest in our mineral wealth.
The work done by the owners on
numerous properties have also
proved that in size pf ore bodies
the district stands second to none.
The publicity booklets circulated
last year also drew considerable
attention to the camp. All these
things have created an interest,
which is already commencing to
bear fruit. The enlarged programme of development work this
year will undoubtedly be successful and each year will see steady
progress until the camp becomes a
producer of importance.
Although, to use a colloquial
expression, "things are coming our
way," it would be a poor policy
for the people of Alice Arm to sit
and wait for the "big boom." We
have an organized branch of the
B. C. Chamber of Mines, which,
up to six months ago did excellent
work. The need for this work is
just as pressing as it was one or
two years ago. Statistics show
that when any concern ceases to
advertise, sales immediately drop.
The same is unquestionably true of
a new mining camp.
Drilling or picking into missed
holes is one of the most frequent
causes of blasting accidents in
metal mines, iu a reoently issued
publication. When it is known
that a face contains an unexploded
charge tho hazard is greatly reduced
as before any one does any other
work at the face the missed hole
can b'e reblasted by placing a new
primer above the charge.
To count the detonation of shots
in rounds and to report the missed
holes is an almost universal practice. Occasionally, as in a large
stope where a number of rounds
are shot together, it is not practicable or possible to count the individual shots.
Where "V"-cut rounds are used,
two or more charges often explode
together and in consequence there
is doubt as to whether any misfires have occurred. Under these
conditions miners are most likely
to pick or drill into missed holes in
cleaning out the broken material.
Missed holes in drift rounds ate
usually easy to detect by an inspection of tlie face, and are generally
identilied by the fuse sticking from
the hole. Missed lifters in drift
rounds are sometimes not made
evident by an inspection, and for
this reason are more dangerous.
Most miners load the lifters heavily
so that the broken rock will be
thrown back from the face on a
shoveling sheet; this makes the de-
tection of a mis-fire in a lifter oasier
Missed holes in shafts or in underhand stopes are more hazardous
than those in drifts because the
unexploded charges are harder to

for farm homes in New Ontario than ever before, according
to a Dominion Government official
stationed at Detroit, but Manitoba
and. northern Saskatchewan and
Alberta is the objective of most of
those now being sent north or who
are negotiating to cross the line.
"I am sending a number this
spring to northern Alberta, around
Lac Labiche," said this agist, "In
June, 1923,1 sent from litre to that
place 35 people in one ear, ALL
lived at Provement, Itieh., and
their parents originally came here
from Quebec. These people were
experienced farmers, had a little
money and prospered from the
first., They have written their
friends and relations and are responsible for many more going into
Alberta. There are many Quebec
French in Ohio and Michigan and
many of them are returning to
British soil., I do not think it is
an exaggeration to say that fifty
per cent of all those now crossing
the line both to'the prairies and
New Ontario, are former Canadians going home%or Americans who
have previously resided on Canadian farms."
