Dolly Varden Mine
Commences Operations
1   r
i>"',
Work Has Already Commenced and Ore
Will be Shipped this Fall.
The Taylor Mining Company
has decided to commence operations
at the Dolly Varden Mine and
i work will commence at once.
Major C. B. North is in charge
of operations and states that the
present plans of the company are
to employ between 20 and 30 men
at the Dolly Varden mine doing
development work and a shipment
of about 4000 tons of ore will be
made in November.
About 15 men will be employed
at the Wolf mine early in Decem-
iber. A spare compressor plant
which.is now at the Dolly Varden
will be installed and about 500 feet
of tunnel will be driven on the
Wolf property this coming, winter,
and it is hoped that it will be
possible to continue operations on
both properties indefinitely.'
Previous development work done
on the Wolf property-consists of
one short tunnel 89 feet in length,
open cuts and diamond drilling.
i Several thousand feet of diamond
drilling was done by the old company with extremely satisfactory
results.
It will  be   welcome   news  for
everyone that at last there is a
probability of the Wolf mine being
opened np and, it is hoped that
development work will prove up
the diamond drilling and place
another mine on the shipping list
of Alice Arm mining properties.
Trains will not be run on the
railroad until about three weeks,
on account of having a new set of
trucks installed under the Climax
engine, but enough food supplies
and material of all kinds are at the
mine to carry over that period.
The Hydro-electric power iplant
which was installed last summer
at the Wolf mine is ni perfect running order and will supply all
•pwrcer-needed--both--at the-BeUy.
Varden and the Wolf. The power
plant consists of 500-k. w.h capacity,
power being obtained by diverting
a portion of Trout Creek' to Wolf
Creek, from which a head of about
400 feet is obtained.
Several men left on Thursday, to
work at the Dolly ' Varden. The
operation of> the mine will help
relieve the unemployed problem in
Alice Arm this coming winter.

NORTHERN BASE-
BAIL CHAMPIONSHIP
WON BY PRINCE
GEORGE
Anyox Team Makes Good
Showing
The Anyox baseball team returned home on Sunday evening on
the Awake, after a most enjoyable
week in Prince Rupert. They did
not have the honor of bringing
home the shield that was hung upr
by Ben Self of Prince Rupert, for
the champion baseball team of the
north, but they did have the satisfaction of winning their first game
and beating Prince Rupert by the
score of 4 to 1 and the chances are
that they would have beaten
Prince George had that team play-
all local men, instead of playing 4
men from Edmonton. Anyhow,
the boys put up a game fight and
although beaten by the score of 12
to 2 they were not disgraced.
AH'the boys of Anyox were loud
in their praise of the hospitality
shown them by the people of Prince
R"uperiC who done everything possible to make their, visit >a pleasant
one. They were delighted with
the fair, which was an eye-opener
to them all and was a credit to the
people of Prince Rupert and the
whole of northern B. 0..   ■
The press of Prince Rupert gave
them credit for a fine exhibition of
baseball against the best team
Prince Rupert could put in the
field, i They hit a surprise package
however,. when they ran against
Prince George, that team being
made up of the Twilight League
professionals bn their way south
with the ducks for the winter.
Next year, however, there is no
doubt a better understanding will
be arriyed at and rules will be
drawn up that will eliminate any
man from playing except he is a
bona fide member of the team and
a resident of the town the team
represents.
If something is not done along
these lines there probably will not
be any championship ganies at all
next year, as far as Anyox is.
concerned.   '
The shield^ this year has been
conceded1 id Prince George, both
Prince Rupert and Anyox being in
favor of letting the pros, hold it
for this-year. '

Fort Norman Oil Fields
Described by Local Man
Mr. L. B. Reynolds has Just Returned from Fort Norman
Mr. L. B.' Reynolds, who left
Alice Arm last April for the Fort
Norman oil fields returned on the
Caniosun on Moiiday last. Leaving
about April 1st. "he went to Ed-
monton, from there he "went to
,Fort, McMurray into which place
the. railroad is building, from there
he went to Port Smith, arriving
there about May 1st. He left Port
Smith on August 5th. aiid went
down the Mackenzie- River to the
Port Norman oil fields, the distance
being 839 miles from Fort Smith,
the trip down occupied nearly three
weeks on account of high winds on
the Lakes.
Mr. Reynolds states that in his
opinion he was in the country from
3 to 5 years too soon, as development work has hardly started and
at present it is no country for a
man to stay in and he would not
advise anyone to go ,in unless he
has unlimited capital at his disposal or was representing some oil
company. Freight rates are high
from Fort McMurray to the Fort
Norman oil fields, ordinary freight
is charged 10i cents per lb. and
pieces of freight weighing over
1000 lbs. are charged 1| times
above ordinary rates.
He saw the Imperial Oil Go's
well at Fort Norman, which is
running three barrels a day, a cave
of the hole has occured, the well is
to be drilled deeper when 'it' ia.
expected a bigger flow will be
obtained.
Two more wells are to be drilled
by the Imperial Oil Co. on Bear
Island, opposite the present well,
one on the south end Of the island
and the other on the north end.
The Fort Norman ..Oil Co. representing Toronto capital have a >well
down 1512 feet, the well js located
nine miles above the Imperial Oil
Co's gusher and Mr. Stover is in
charge of operations. A shortage
of drilling equipment compelled
them to stop operations, but drilling will be resumed again. next
spring. i
The Imperial Oil Co. are drilling
2| miles below Bear River and Mr.
McLennan, the manager has great
faith in striking oil and also the
two wells on Bear Island where
there are fine indications, if-
Drilling at Windy Point "Was a
failure, the drill went Ihrough 50
feet of. solid .salt and finally hit
granite, the well was down 1850
feet when drilling eeased. It was
a great disappointment to everyone
as the ground was heavily staked
around it. This outfit is to he
moved to Hay River, 70 miles
below Fort Resolution, at which
place- are good indications. Mr.
Reynolds staked oil claims ■ at
Windy Point, but did not record
them.
Regarding building a railroad or
a pipe line into the Fort Norman
country, Mr. Reynolds says that
on his way out he was talking the
matter over with Dr. McNiel,
expert geologist for the Imperial
Oil Co. and his opinion was that it
would require at least 35 first-class
oil gushers before transportation ■
of any kind could be considered.
Talking of the McKenzie River
Mr Reynolds said it is the finest
navigable river he was ever on and
he has been on nearly every navigable river on the North American
Continent. The McKenzie is li
mile's wide at Fort Norman. He
said the flies up in that country
are a terror, .especially the bulldogs' which attack the horses, the
horses at the portage were stream:
ing with blood from the bites of
these ferocious insects.
He considers the Fort Norman
country is no place for the small
investor. Oil in that country is a
big company proposition.
: He met lots of mining men while
in the north and he was busy
boosting for Alice Arm all the
time, he also received copies of the
Herald while up there. He is glad
to get back to Alice Arm once
more and says this camp has a
brighter future than any place he
struck in all his travels. He left
here nearly five months ago and
has been travelling practically all
the time.
NEW ORE STRIKE
ON SILVER TIP
A new ore ledge has been located by E. Ness and Jack Fi-va on
the Silver Tip which is located at
the Kitsault Glacier and joins the,
Homestake on the east.   The ledge
is 12 feet wide with well defined
walls and carries galena and copper
glance. It parallels the big ledge
on the Homestake and has been
traced on the surface for a distance
of 300 feet. E. Ness and Jack
Fiva came down from the property
on Monday for supplies and brought

The Gardens of
Alice Arm.
It would not be fair to the citizens of Alice Arm if we let this
summer   pass by without saying
a word about the garden produce
that has been grown here this summer.    The size and quality of the
vegetables and flowers grown, has
been a surprise for1 the citizens of
the   town who   made their first
experiment in gardening this year.
Practically every kind of vegetable
grown in a temperate climate has
been produced this summer and the
flowers grown have been a source
of wonderment to our numerous
visitors from  Anyox, who never
imagined that such flowers could
be grown in the north.   Gardening
is one of the most lucrative and
healthful   pastimes   that   can   be
indulged in and should be encouraged by   every   possible   means.
Well kept gardens mean a thrifty
and   industrious   community, and
they also add to the beauty of the
town.    It is hoped that still more
people will beautify their homes'
with flowers next year, many a
dirty disreputable piece of ground
can be made a place of beauty by
the planting of a few flower seeds.
There is also no reason why we
could not have an exhibition next
fall, we have a fine building in the
skating rink for the display of all
fruit, vegtables and live stock, etc.
Prizes could be given, both for the
produce on show and also for the
best   kept gardens.    It could be
held on Labor Day, and excursions run from Anyox.     Sports
could be held in the afternoon,
followed by a dance in the evening
and everyone could have a real
good time.   There would be quite
a little work in getting it started the
first year, but we would be well
repaid for our labor and the annual
exhibition at Alice Arm would be
looked upon in future years as the
one big day of the year both for
ourselves and   our neighbours at
Anyox.   Perhaps when the Citizens Association are reorganized
they will take the matter up and
work out some plan whereby it
will be possible to hold an exhibition next year.
Hon. William Sloan
Undergoes Operation
Hon. William Sloan, minister of
mines, has undergone a successful
operation in the Vancouver General
Hospital, where a nasal abscess was
removed, The minister spent several
months this summer endeavoring to
improve his health. He had been suffering from high blood pressure for
some time and when the operation
was performed the blood pressure was
lowered. It is expected that he will
make a rapid recovery.
Mining Company has
Plan to Share Profits
An interesting statement of co-part-
liership has been laid before representatives of all sections of workers of the
Roodeport United Main Reef Gold
Mining Oo. of South Africa, by the
General Mining Finance Corporation
for the purpose of extricating the
mine from its present precarious position.
The proposal is that employees forego
half their existing union rates of pay
to enable the company to pay interest
on the large amounts of money owing,
and afterward, before any profits are
paid to shareholders, the first charge
on further proceeds from the mine
would be1 wages up to full union standards. After this any remaining surplus
profits would be divided among the
shareholders and employees.

Steve Sweitzer Drowns
in Untile River
Steve Sweitzer, who was known
jy all the early residents in
Stewart, inet his death recently by
irowning in the IJnuk River.
3teye went to Stewart with the
first rush of prospectors prior to
the boom of 1910, and was well
known as a trapper and hunter.
The Ketchikan Chronicle prints
the following account of his death:
Steve Sweitzer, known to many
in Ketchikan and vicinity, was
drowned in the Unuk River on
August 2nd, according to advices
received from J. T. Scott, who was
with him when he fell overboard
oft' a sweeper. The current was
very swift at that particular place

coming up only twice before disappearing entirely, Scott said in the
fumsage. The body has not yet

Eureka Mine at Hope
is Being Developed
The Foley, Welch & Stewart people
have recently acquired the Eureka silver mine, on Silver Creek, about five
miles from Hope, and have opened a
new lead, 14 feet wide, carrying silver
bromide assaying over 600 ounces in
silver per ton, in addition to some gold
and copper values.
The Eureka has the distinction of
being the first crown granted mineral
claim in British Columbia. Its number is 1, and it carries title to the lead
to all depth on all its dips, angles and
spurs, so long as it remains within the
boundaries of British Columbia.
Ore producing over $120,000 in silver
was shipped to Swansea, Wales, bjr
way of Cape Horn, from this property
in the early days of placer mining on
the Fraser River.

Pinder-Moss, the organizer is receiving a ready and willing response
in his efforts to secure both instructors and equipment.
Enquiries as to courses and applications for enrollment are also
being received daily and the
appearances all point to a successful session.
However, as' "All work and ' no
play makes Jack a dull boy," the
organizer would also be glad to get
in touch with everyone who is
interested in music, either vocal or
instrumental, physical culture, or
ambulance work, and Debating,
with the object of relieving the
tedium of study and social relaxation of various kinds.
Any suggestions which will help
make the Polytechnic a permanent
success will be gladly welcomed
and the organizer will be pleased
to meet any ladies and gentlemen
who are interested in social or
educational projects. A call at the
Anyox Hotel or by phone 270 or
28l will' be greatly appreciated.
THE WAYWARD GI&
WINS CAMPBELL CUP
Beats the Miss Rupert by
a Mile
The speed boat race between
George Frizzell's Miss Rupert and
The Wayward Girl, belonging to
Mrs. H. F. Munro, which was held
last Saturday afternoon at Prince
Rupert, was a great thrill for the
large crowd of spectators who witnessed it. Getting away to a
flying start it was soon noticed
that the Wayward Girl was forging ahead and at the end of the
race she was a mile ahead of the
Mies Bupert, having covered the
twelve mile course in 30 minutes,
12 seconds.
Great praise is due to Mr. 0.
Bollag for the expert way in which
.Jie handled the boat. Fred Brown
accompanied him.
The Campbell Cup, which is the
trophy for the race, having been
won three years in succession now
becomes the property of Mrs. H. S.
Munroe and will remain in Anyox.

WORK BEING DONE
ON VANGUARD
Property Contains Some
High Grade Ore
Morris Peterson came down from
the Vanguard this week, where he
has been doing some more stripping
on the big showings of ore. The
Vanguard is one of the best looking
properties in the Kitsault Valley
and samples of ore assaying high
in gold, silver and copper have
been taken at different times from
the property. The American
Smelting & Refining Co. sampled
the property thoroughly 2 years
ago and the results obtained by
them were very satisfactory, from
a width-of 10 feet the average was
4 ozs. silver and 8 per cent oopper
and from another showing on a
width of 11J feet the average obtained was 5 ozs.1 silver per ton
and 11 per cent copper. The ore
ulso carries gold values averaging
$9.00 per ton. Unfortunately, the
company could not arrive at a satisfactory understanding with the
owners in regard to operating the
property and the deal fell through.
Two tunnels have been driven on
the property one being 150 feet in
length and the Other 70 feet.
Morris Peterson, John and Gus.
Strombeek are the owners of the
property.
