Mine Club's Carnival
Dance Was Big
Affair
Melodians Make a Hit
Another brilliant suooess for the
Mine Club was recorded on Monday evening, when the boys entertained a huge gathering at their
"May Day Carnival Dance."
Novelty was the keynote of the
affair, reflected in all details, the
decorative scheme of the hall being
symbolic of the Spirit of Carnival,
and recalling the famous May Day
celebration of our younger days.
From a background of green,
bright colors radiated from all
directions, centering upon a giant
May-pole, that completely covered
the rear wall of the hall. The
scent of the open forest was in the
atmosphere, caused by masses of
fir and cedar branches, that had
been gathered from Hastings Arm,
and placed in artistic arrangement
around the walls. From these a
whimsical effect. was produced by
strings of roses entwined among
the branches. Tbe balcony was a
\ picture long to be remembered, and
' the Club's reputation for decorative ability gained another notch
up the ladder of fame. Thus the
spirit of the affair immediately
caught the dancers, from their
entrance into the hall, until the
last strains of the home waltz had
died out. Yet, perhaps the happiest surprise of the evening, was
the success of the Mine Club's
own orchestra. Now firmly
established, and known as "The
Melodians" the boys handled the
programme in a manner worthy
of old timers, introducing many of
the very newest numbers, together
with an old favorite once in a
while, that was played just at the
right time. Encores were numerous, many of the dances being repeated for the fourth and fifth
time. Congratulations came from
all sides, not the least pleasing being from the leader of the Elks'
Orchestra, who, having danced
every number, came up and personally voiced his pleasure at the
newly formed orchestra up on the
hill.
Friends from the   beach   were
present iu large numbers.

Football Season Opens
In Anyox
Mine and Smelter Draw 0-0
What promises to be the most
successful season in the history of
football in Anyox, was opened
Tuesday evening, when the Mine
and Smelter teams opposed each
other. A good crowd of enthusiastic supporters of both teams
were out to witness the tussle, and
they were treated to a good display of football. While it was the
first game of the season, the boys
went along in mid-season form
playing clean football, at all times.
The game finished a scoreless
draw, which is a fair indication of
the play, although both sides came
within an ace of scoring on more
than one occasion, the smelter
team netting the ball twice, but
both goals were disallowed. Players new to the game in Anyox,
showed up well on both teams, as
did also the old standbys, who still
have a kick or two left in them.
The game was ably handled by
Referee Evans, who held the play
in hand at all times.
The class of football displayed ii
this game compares favorably with
senior teams in the big towns
south, and deserves the whole
hearted support of the people of
Anyox, especially by their attendance at the games.
The teams lined up as follows:
Smelter: goal; Leake, Backs;
Wardrope, McConachie. H. Backs:
Mitchell, Buntain, J. Kirkland.
Forwards: Dewar, Matheson,
Powell, Campbell, S. Kirkland.
Mine: Goal; Halverson. Backs:
S. Stewart, Rynn, H. Backs:
Gilmore, Anderson, Cane. Forwards: Hunter, Jacques, Bob
Stewart, Peters, Jack.
Referee: J. Evans.

Alice  Arm   Logging
Camps Operating to
Capacity
Will Operate All Season
The logging camp of Eric Carlson is now operating full blast,
and fifty men are employed. The
first train load of logs was brought
out of the woods on Wednesday,
and a steady stream has been coming out during the balance of the
week. The logs taken out now
are at the extreme north end of
the Abbotsford Logging ■ Co's
limits, and is over one mile from
the camp. The next move will be
towards the Illiance river.
It is estimated that enough
timber is available to operate this
season, and it is possible that other
timber will be taken over, which
will guarantee operations for another year or two.
An overflow of water from the
Kitsault river, is commencing to
impede operations, and this matter is being taken in hand. One
dam and perhaps more will be constructed to turn the overflow and
keep it from flooding the flats at
the north end.
J. O. Trethewey commenced to
pull logs out of the woods this
week. He has around 15 men employed, which makes over 60 men
now living at the camp.
The new government road is in
excellent condition for walking
and a visit to the spar tree of Eric
Carlson is well worth the time
spent. The ease and swiftness in
handling the big sticks is a source
of wonder to those not acquainted
with up-to-date logging methods.
Mr. Jack Graham, an old resident of Alice Arm, and well
known in the northern coast
towns, arrived home on Thursday
from a six month's trip to New
Zealand, accompanied hf a bride.
The wedding was solemnized at
Auckland, New Zealand, on Tuesday April 7, when Miss Maida
Murray, only daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. F. Murray, of Auckland, become the bride of Mr. J. Graham.
They left the following week on
their trip to Alice Arm, crossing
on the S.S. Niagara in 18 days.
They spent a day at Honolulu, inspecting beauties of the city. Perfeot weather prevailed throughout
the. trip.
Mr. Graham took his many
friends on the coast completely by
surprise, by returning with a
bride, and everyone wishes both
him and Mrs. Graham all happiness and prosperity in the future.
Lost time is never found.
Alice Arm Tennis Club
Hold Meeting
A meeting of the members of
the Alice Arm Tennis Club was
held in the Anglican Church last
Saturday evening. President Al.
Falconer was chairman.
The financial position of the
Club was reviewed. Owing to the
heavy expense entailed this year in
preparing the court, it was decided that the following membership
fees would be charged: Adults
$10.00, Children $2.50 for a seasons ticket. Visiting members to
be charged $1.00 per week. The
money derived from membership
fees is expected to cover all indebtedness.
An executive committee, consisting of Mrs. H. F. Kergin and
Mr. S. F. D. Roe was appointed.
They will act in conjunction with
the president, vice-president and
secretary, on all business matters.
The matter of a tournament
with Anyox and Stewart during
the summer was brought up, and
after some discussion it was decided to hold this over until some
future meeting.
The hours of play for children
will be decided by the executive
committee, and these hours will be
posted at the court. ALICE   ARM  AND  ANYOX  HERALD,   Saturday.   May  9,   1925

E. MOSS, Editor and Publisher.
The good old summer time is
here again, and outdoor sportsmen
are commencing to hit their stride
on the tennis courts, football and
baseball fields. The successful
past seasons of sport in Anyox,
bids fair to be duplicated this
year, and everyone is looking forward to another successful season
of good clean sport. The Anyox
Community League, as in past
years, stands ready to do its part
in fostering all sport, and with the
co-operation of everyone, a successful season will result. Anyox has
been extremely fortunate in past
years in having as residents a number of good baseball players, but
the impression seems to be abroad
in certain quarters that because
some of these players have left
town that it is problematic whether
a really successful season can be
carried out. Now there are in
Anyox over 1000 men, who can
be drawn upon to compose three
baseball teams, so that there
certainly should not be any great
difficulty in finding material. It
may not be possible to produce
such high class games as in previous years, but the fans will enjoy
the boy's work on the diamond
just as much, and any little faults
will be overlooked, when they
realize that the new players .are
playing for the love of the game,
and the encouragement of amateur
sport.
The sports mentioned above
are not all the sports that are in
active stage at this time of the
year. House cleaning is a sport,
indulged in by the ladies around
this time of the year with the
greatest zeal, and the scrubbing
brush, mop, paint brush, etc. are
very much in evidence. This is
one sport in which the ladies are
not bothered by the men. Her
better half is quite willing that she
shall have her fun, and pressing
business takes him elsewhere, unless he is drafted onto the end of
a mop.
Premier Co. Samples
Riverside at Stewart
Officials of the Premier Gold
Mining Company are sampling and
taking an inventory on all equipment at the Riverside mine on the
Alaska side of the boundery six
miles from Hyder.
The work of sampling the Dunwell mine has been completed and
Hie assays are being made prior to
the final negotiations for the sale
of the property. The Stewarts
hold a controlling interest in the
mine and the question of whether
it is sold or 'not depends almost
wholly on them. Usually all the
Guggenheim interests want is a
controlling interest in the property.
If the people who control the
Premier should purchase this mine,
they will do it with the idea of
commencing active operations at
once and placing it on a shipping
basis.
Mr.   A.   Wilson   of
Anyox Dies at Stewart
Charlie Wilson, an old timer in
Anyox and for the last three years,
master of the soow "Griff," died
suddenly at Stewart, from
pneumonia, on Tuesday the 28th.
The deceased suffered only a short
illness, being sent to the hospital
at 11 a.m. Tuesday, he died the
same day at 7 p.m., and was
buried at Stewart on Friday May
1st. The crew of the Mogul all
attended the funeral. The late
Mr. Wilson, who was well known
here, has been in this country a
number of years. He was born at
Liverpool, England. He was a
veteran of the late war, and was
54 years of age.
Beer Parlors Cut Prices
Canadian Fur Harvest Brings
Over $15,000,000
The total value of the raw fur
production of Canada for the season 1923-1924, was $15,643,817.
This amount represents the market value of the pelts of fur-bearing animals taken in Canada during the season, comprising pelts of
animals taken by trappers, and
pelts of ranch-bred animals, the
value of the latter constituting approximately 5j per cent, of the
total value.
For a few days last week Fernie
had a price cutting bee at the beer
parlors, the amber fluid at one
time being retailed at three glasses
for 25 cents. Affairs were quickly
adjusted, however, and the price is
now back to 10 cents straight.

also 3000 minor accidents.
In 1924 there were 1392 more

Spider Group Bonded
at Stewart
Portland Canal Newt
Joe Green, of Hyder, Alaska,
who spent most of the winter in
Vancouver and disposed of bonds
he held on the Baywiew and Silver Slipper groups, aud who returned two weeks ago to this
camp, leaves tomorrow for the
south after bonding the Spider
group and the Webb group.
The Spider, located by Chas.
Larson and Wm. Hamilton, is one
of the best known properties of
the district. It was bonded in
1920 by the Algunican Syndicate,
a Belgian corporation, and a considerable amount of work was
done which disclosed bodies of ore
running exceptionally high in silver values. The Belgian people
relinquished the bond on account

When a plumber makes a mistake
he charges for it.
When a lawyer makes a mistake it
is just what he wanted, because he
has a chance to try the case over
again.
When a carpenter makes a mistake
it's just what he expected.
When a doctor makes a mistake he
buries it.
Wiien a judge makes a mistake it
becomes the law of the land.
When a preacher makes a mistake
nobody knows the difference.
But when a printer makes a mistake—Good night!
A young man who had reached
the stage at whioh his voice was
changing went into a grooery
store,
In a deep bass voice he demanded "a sack of flour;" then his
voice snddenly changing to a high
pitch, he added "and a pound of
coffee."
"Just a minute, please," said the
clerk; " I can't wait on. both of you
at once."

The Man on the Road
to Success
Men of experience will
tell you that a suit of
good clothes is the most
profitable equipment
with which to travel the
road to success. Good
appearance gives a man
faith inhimself and wins
the esteem of others.
Leishman Clothes—the
Best Tailored   Clothes

successful man because
their lines are dignified,
their style is correct,
their long service means
utmost economy, and
their workmanship
leaves nothing to be
desired.
