Anyox Children's Tennis
Tournament Success
The Children's mixed doubles
tennis tournament staged at the
local court* on Tuesday by the
Anyox Community League Tennis
Club was voted a huge success.
The games got under way at
9.30 a.m. and finished at 3 p.m. A
large number of youngsters took
part and some very good tennis
was exhibited. The winners were
1st. Russell McMillan, and Miss
Dora Grigg with a perfect score of
112 points; 2nd. John Gillies and
Miss Mildred Dresser with 108 and
a handicap of 3, giving them a total
of 111 points,
Freddy Gordon and Miss Patricia
Loudon received a half dozen tennis
balls for having the lowest score of
the day.
Ice cream and refreshments were
served following the presentation of
the prizes by F. C. Townshend,
president of the Tennis Club.
Great credit is due to the following for their untiring efforts in
making the tournament a complete
success: F. C. Townshend and E.
R. Johnson who supplied the tennis
balls; Mesdames C. 0. Fricker, F.
Larson, W. F. Eve and A. Kirby
who arranged the games, selected
1 he prizes and attended to the refreshments, etc.

Party Held in Honor of Mr.
and Miss Champion
A party was held at the Sawmill
on Wednesday evening August 24th
in honor of Miss Rowena Champion
and Mr. L. F. Champion, who are
soon to leave Anyox to make their
home in South Africa. Mrs. C. O.
Fricker, Mrs. W. F. Eve and Miss
M. J. Stewart were the sponsors,
and over fifty guests were present.
The trip over was made in the
launches Effie, Delcarey, Olive S.
Wildcat and J. S. Stewart's motor
A presentation was made by C.
O. Fricker on behalf of those present to Miss Chanpion, it being a
sum of money, with which she was
to purchase something upon reaching the city.
The crosscut tunnel being driven
on the Vanguard property by contract encountered ore afewdays ago.
Latest authentic information obtained by the Herald is that the
tunnel has cut through eight feet of
chalcopyrite copper, with the face
still in ore. The tunnel encountered
tlie ore on the foot wall and the
hanging wall is not yet in sight. ,
The tunnel encountered the ore at
a distance of about 230 feet from
the portal, and the depth obtained
is approximately 200 feet.
Samples of ore brought down
show it to be heavily mineralized,
and it is estimated that the whole
vein will average 7 per cent copper
Extremely good values have been
obtained in gold from surface ore,
and it is the belief that these values
will be maintained with depth.
As soon as the ore body is cut
through it is hoped to drive crosscuts both ways, and it is possible
that a diamond drill may be installed underground, so that values
can be determined at depth in as
sh jrt a time as possible.
The cutting through of this ore
vein will develop a  big tonnage.
' Surface showings indicate large deposits.    The owners drove a tunnel
under these showings and encountered the ore at a depth of 90 feet,
so that it has been already proven
on two levels.
The striking of this rich vein of
ore is one of the best that has been
made in Alice Arm, and will undoubtedly further stimulate mining
in the Kitsault valley. The discovery again proves the great possibilities of the section. Almost three
years ago the big ore body was encountered at the Toric. The following year the LaRose tunnel encountered ore, and this year it is the
Vanguard. The ore body on each
property was located by a
single tunnel, a few hundred feet in
length, and no difficulty whatever
was experienced.,
The Vanguard is located near the
Kitsa,ult Glacier, and is one of the
four properties bonded by the Victor
Spencer interests of Vancouver last
October. It is owned by J. Strom-
beck, G. Strombeek and M. Petersen. The former, have a quarter
interest each and the latter holds
a half interest.
Adjoining it are several well known
copper properties. The Kitsault
Group joins it on the north. An
8 foot cut on what is known as the
Spar Lead on the Fox claim of this
group has given an average value
of 4 per cent copper and $2.00 gold
per ton. This vein can be traced
for 3000 feet. Other good ore
showings have also been developed
with excellent results by the
owners, The Kitsault River Mining
& Development Co.
Adjoining the Vanguard at
higher elevation is located the
Lucky Strike. This property also
contains large deposits of copper
ore, carrying high copper, silver
and gold values. It contains several ore veins three of which are 12
feet, 16 feet and 20 feet wide respectively.
The development of the Vanguard
and other properties is the first serious attempt to develop the copper
deposits of the district.   The phen

Logging  Operations Will
Soon Terminate
In a few weeks the last of the
timber will be logged from the
Kitsault River flats by F. L. Housley. During the week the last spar
tree was rigged. Logging is now
being carried on at a point opposite
Canyon Creek on the east bank of
the Kitsault River.
Ore Samples Requested
for Prince Rupert
A letter was received during the
week, by O. Evindson president of
the local Chamber of Mines from A.
D. Yorke, secretary, who is in
Prince Rupert.
The letter stated that the ore
samples from Alice Arm that were
displayed at the fair there last year
were boxed, and were available
again for this year. He stated
however, that unless some new
samples were sent no prizes could
be allowed, and urged the necessity
of sending more samples so that
Alice Arm could compete for prizes.
Samples must arrive in Alice Arm
not later than Wednesday evening
next for shipment the following day.
Mining property owners are
urged to send down samples at
once. They will be boxed and
sent south by the Chamberof Mines.

Dryest Summer on Record
The oldest residents in the district
state that this is the dryest summer
ever experienced. The dry spell has
lasted almost two months with the
exception of one night's rain. The
water shortage has been acute
around Alice Arm, yesterday rain
commenced to fall which should
relieve the situation. The only
bush fire this year was that west of
Anyox smelter. Luckily Alice Arm
escaped without one bush or building fire.
Alice Arm Ores Capture
Many Prizes
The Alice Arm and Anyox
Mining district again beat any
other single distriot in the province in regard to number of prizes
for ore at the Vancouver exhibition.
Four firsts and two second prizes
werecaptured, which are as follows:
Best exhibit of gold ore (free
milling)—1. pioneer Mine, "Lilloeot
2 Golskeish (Naas Eiver).
Free silver ore—1, LaRose Mine
(Alice Arm); 2, Babine Silver
Copper ores—1, Britannia Mining & Smelting Company; 2, Vanguard Group (Alice Arm).
Zino ores—1, Standard Zinc
Mining Company (Alice Arm); 2,
Lynn Creek Zinc.
Molybdenite—1, G. W. Bruggy
(Alice Arm); 2, J. M. Desmond,
Texas Creek, Lytton.
Showing treatment of any metallic ore produced in B. C, from
its orude state to the final metal
product—1, Britannia Mining &
Smelting Co.; 2. Granby Miniug
& Smelting Company (Anyox).
The local ores were in competition with the best the province
could produce, and the success
attained is a source of great satisfaction to the property owners of
the camp. Alice Arm unquestionably has the ores, and moreover
they are in bodies large enough to
make mining economical and
Ore Discovery Made on
Moonlight Group
A nice vein of ore eight feet wide
and traceable on the surface for a
distance of, 500 feet is being developed on the Moonlight Group.
Samples of ore shows it to be
impregnated with copper and silver, and samples will be sent out
immediately for assaying.
The discovery was made a short
time ago, and a tunnel fourteen
feet in length has been drifted on
the ore.

New Ore Vein Marmot
Metals is Uncovered
Again Alice Arm has shown the
world that in regard to its mineral
wealth it stands second to none
and equal to any district in the
province. At the recent Vancouver exhibition it carried off
more prizes than any other district, and the display sent was not
representative of the district.
Many properties were not represented, and it is probable that it
was just as well that they were
not or the rest of the province
would have felt so discouraged
that it would require a large
amount of persuasion to get them
to send samples for next year's
exhibit. A great many people
wonder why capital does not rush
into the district in a greater volume to develop these latent riches.
We have been told that if the ore
bodies from which these samples
came were located a few hundred
miles further south that the biggest
mining boom in the history of
Canada would result. But our
location is only a fraction of the
trouble. It is true that Alice Arm
is off the main track of travelling,
and if mining men visit us it entails
a special journey. Our geographical position does not retard development to any serious extent.
Big mines are being worked the
year round in Alaska hundreds of
miles north of us. Extensive mining districts are also being developed in the extreme cold northern
latitudes of Ontario and Quebec.
They are being developed in the
tropical jungles of Africa and
among the clouds of Chili. What
we need is men to go out and
bring in capital, and take a reasonable offer on a property. Anyone
that gets anything these days must
necessarily be a go-getter, other'
wise his competitor will beat him
to it, often with an inferior article.
Cowichan Leader—There is no
more important task lying to the
hand of the resident in these unorganized districts than c real and
lively interest in the self-government afforded by the school system.
That this system is capable of
great improvement is admitted by
everyone who takes the trouble
to investigate. Too often young
teachers are appointed to schools
Reports coming from the Marmot Metals at Stewart all indicate
that this property is developing a
big ore tonnage carrying good
values. This is gratifying to the
large number of shareholders in
this district, most of whom invested
when the Marmot Metals Co. was
formed, and who realize that it is
a sound investment.
G. W. Bruggy, who is one of the
directors of the company, has received tlie news that a vein of ore
was recently uncovered eight feet
wide, averaging $60 to $70 cut
assay. It is considered to be the
best ore showing yet located, and
a tunnel is already being faced up
to drive on the ore. A foot of
depth can be obtained for every
eighteen inches driven. Mr.
Bruggy was also in receipt of ore
samples, which shows the ore to be
highly mineralized, the values
being in zinc, silver and gold.
The Marmot Metals is not a
one-vein property, since there are
nine veins altogether. Six of
these have been proven to carry
good ore values, while on the other
three no work has been done beyond
surface sampling.
It is believed that the expenditure of a moderate sum of money
will proveupa property of immense
J. D. Galloway, provincial mineralogist and Dr. H. T. James resident engineer were greatly interested when they examined the
property a short time ago.

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.
Absolute Titles are obtained by developing such properties, security of which is guaranteed  by
Crown Grants.

Premier and B. C. Silver
Reported Amalgamated
The Toronto financial Post says:
The Premier, B. C. Silver and
National Silver amalgamation has
definately gone through.
The latest advices, while not
official, are from sources that figure
very strongly in the deal, and the
news from them is that the deal is
definitely closed.
Thus, the three big proven
mines in the Salmon River section
of Portland Canal come under one
management. Jnst how this will
be handled, is not yet known.
Premier has a 400 ton mill and
this can be easily enlarged. It has
also capablo and experienced engineers, but so has the B. C. Silver.
The management of tho latter and
National Silver has been the same
for some  considerable time.
Tlie terms, as announced some
time ago in the Post are the correct
ones. Premier increases its capital
to $10,000,000, or double the present figure, and pays back the other
two, all the money they have expended, plus substantial blocks of
Perfume Got His Goat
Boulder of Silver Found in
Considerable excitement has been
aroused in the North Bay
district of Ontario, by the discovery
on a farm at Veruer, of a boulder
weighing over three hundred
lb. which is half native silver.
The find has been corroborated by
John A. Dresser, development
geologist of the Canadian Pacific
Railway, who has examined the
boulder. He places its value at
about $1,200. The farm on which
it was found is about 100 miles
south of Cobalt. Offers have been
made to purohase the boulder for
its value in silver. It is altogether
likely that the find will be made
a feature of the mineral exhibit of
the British Empire Mining Congress in Canada this fall.
Do you want to protect your
favorite Persian torn cat or toy
Pom. from the unwelcome attentions of a prize winning Boston bull
pup? if so, here is a method to make
them as safe as in a bank vault.
Dust the animal with violet or
rose scented talcum powder and
sprinkle him liberally with Florida
water, afterwards decorating the
quadruped with a pretty silk ribbon
around the neck.
This was the procedure adopted
by the little daughters of W. F.
Barclay of Anyox, to protect their
pet white kid goat, and it certainly
did the trick.
The other evening at Silver City
the goat tripped daintily down the
trail, carrying with it the odor of a
Bulgarian rose garden, when it ran
full tilt into an Anyox fire eating
Boston bull. The dog seemed to
sense that something out of the
ordinary had dropped his way and
after a slight hesitation went in
After rolling the goat over a few
times he decided that he had made
a mistake, and had got hold of a
large sized lady's toilet puff. The
goat escaped without a scratch.

People like the man with courage
enough to stand up and say what
he thinks—providing he thinks
their way.
Away back in the late sixties thousands of
acres of British Columbia's timber were
sold for one cent per acre, which looked
like a fair price—then. To-day similar
timber is worth from $150 to $200 an acre,
so tremendously has timber appreciated in
value within the scope of an average lifetime.
What the young growth of to-day will be
worth sixty years from now is beyond computation if it is protected from fire   and
allowed to reach maturity.
