Richer Ore
Ore values at the Esperanza
jiine are increasing in value as the
ork is being . proceeded with,
faring the work of drifting in the
jaldy tunnel this week some Of the
ohfcst ore yet found in thisdistriot
['as uncovered. The ore is composed of ruby silver crystals and
;3me beautiful specimens were
irought down the hill to town
tiring the week, and are on display at Bruggy's Store. This rich
|re was found in the higli grade
rein from which most of the ore
[hipped by the mine has been
akfjn, but it is much richer than
,ny previous ore taken out and the
•ein is- also increasing in width,
Lnd now varies from 18ins. to
!4ins. wide.
The ore vein in the tunnel is
iibout 6 feet wide, and is all good
hipping ore. The high grade
ieing found on the hanging wall.
Vbout 300 sacks of high grade ore
s now at the mine ready for ship-
mg, but shipping will probably
lot be commenced until the snow
rones and it ia passible to sleigh
he ore from the mine direct to the
irharf. This now being practical
ince the government widened the
rail from the railway grade to the
Alice Group Working
Work on the Alice is being pro-
eeded with. A crosscut tunnel is
ieing driven to strike the high
trade surface showings. The tunr
s now in about 20 feet and ore is
ixpected to be encountered at any
rime.
Community League
Election of Officers
The election of Councillors for
the Anyox Community League
was held on August 30th. Eleven
candidates were on the ballot for
seven seats. The poll was not as
heavy as formerly owing to many
members being away on holidays.
This was the half yearly election
under the new rule, whereby half
the Counoil retires every six
months, and as all are elected for
one year, there' is always half of
the number with at least six
months experience as Councillors.
Three old-timers were elected,
viz: R. Armour, E. J. Conway, J.
Sherman. The four new Councillors are all young men and
should be capable of injecting some
pep into the organization-
The new Councillors and the
votes polled by each, are as follows:
C. Ferguson
73
E. J. Conway
70
D. Rowley
57
R. Armour

J. Sherman

Completes Lumber Contract
C. P. Riel has completed his con
tract for 20,000 feet of lumber for
the Granby Co.   The
lumber will
be used on construction work, and
the last shipment will be made ou
Monday.
Yew Strike on the
Bunker Hill Property
A new strike of ore has been
made on the Bunker Hill group by
J. Calvin. The strike was made
above the timber line and shows
great promise of developing into a
big ore shoot. Samples are now
being assayed, and meanwhile work
on the vein is being proceeded
with.
Much Development
Work Being Done
A great deal of development
work is being done by property
owners this summer throughout
the whole district, which faot
shows that all mining property
owners have boundless faith in the
camp. All signs point to a big
revival of mining in the Alice Arm
district in the spring. It is now
almost certain that the Dolly
Varden and Wolf mines will operate next year and transportation
will be, then available for the upper
Alice Arm Gardens Good
Considering the exceptionally dry
weather prevailing this summer,
the gardens around Alice Arm
have done exceedingly well. Some
fine vegetables have been grown by
the local gardeners and would compare favorably with any grown in
the province.
Kitsault Valley, whioh means that
other companies now holding back
will start developing their properties, and new companies will enter
the field eager to get ground in
such a rich mineral zone. Every
piece of development work done
this year increases the value of the
respective property, and makes it
easier for the owners to do business
with mining companies, When it
is considered that only two mining
properties in the whole district
have been developed to any considerable extent—the Dolly Varden
and the Esperanza—and both of
these have.proved to be rioh mines,
it is no wonder that with the wonderful showings on other properties
throughout the district that the
owners of olaims are full Of optimism and ready to spend their last
dollar on their property.
Anyox Baseball:
Elks Win Game
On Labor Day, Sept. 4th, the
fans were treated to an excellent
exhibition of baseball, when the
Mine and Elks met in the fourth
game of the cup series. Previous
to this game the Mine had two
wins and the Elks one. The majority of the fans were glad to see
the Elks win this game, which now
puts both teams on an equal footing, having won two games each,
thereby necessitating the playing
of the fifth ganie to decide who
will hold the silverware until next1
season. The scores of these four
games have all been close. The
winning team on each , occasion
only tallying one run more sthan
their opponents, which can be
taken as a criterion of the quality
of the contests.
Draudson pitched for the Elks
and C. Ferguson for the Mine.
Both pitched a good game, the
fielders supporting in good style.
The Mine infield showed some real
class with two double plays, but
their outfield did not come up to
the quality of the JSlks^ at fielding
flys. The batting of both teams
was about equal, but the heavy
hitting of Green well and Cody at
the right moment brought home
the bacon.
In the first inning the first three
men for the Mine were all put out
on short pops before reaching first
base. The Elks got their first run
in this innings when Campbell got
home on Greenwell's two-bagger.
2nd. inning: Mine failed to tally.
Elk's at bat; Draudson, Whittaker
and Thorley all in possession of a
sack; Hunter struck out; Menzies
struck out; Downs got "a walk
which allowed Draudson home;
Campbell struck out.   Score 2-0.
3rd. inning: Corckle out at first;
Carlson struck out; Manning
makes first while Thorley misses
and Manning goes'. to second;
Mealey's fly to foul territory is
caught by Downs, who does some
fast maneovering. Elks: Cody out
at first; Greenwell hits a 2-bagger
whioh Carlson loses in the sun
Draudson and Whittaker struck
out:
4th. inning: Moran single; Per;
guson single; Moran has an exciting moment running back and
forth between 2nd. and 3rd., with
six Elks after him, but he found a
safe anchorage at 2nd; Anderson
struck out; Sinclair singles; Moran
home; Corckle a 2-bagger; Ferguson home; Sinclair caught stealing
home. Elks: Thorley struck put;
Hunter oaught by Carlson; Menzies out at first.
Mine: Carlson struck out;' Manning 2-bagger; Mealy sacrificed;
Brown out at first. Elks: Downs
out by Sinclair! Campbell waljtedf
Cody hit to Ferguson (double play)
Ferguson to Moran to Sinclair.
No runs.
Elks Stage Big
Labor Day Dance
As purveyors of joy in, Anyox,
premier place must be given to the
Elks. Never did a happier crowd
meet in the smelter town. There
may have been bigger gatherings
but not in that Hall, because the
floor space could not accomodate
another couple. The Hall was
beautifully decorated in purple and
white in a festoon centering in a
dome effect which was illuminated
with the colors of the Order,
royal purple and pure white.
Some of the boys Wore cute little
purple field service caps, but to
show that they were not confining
the decorative head piece to themselves alone, paper hats of all colors
of the rainbow were distributed to
each person present, and to give
the occasion ' the real festival
touch, squeaking balloons were
passed around and when about 200
of these lung expanders got working the orohestra took a rest, and
until most of them were busted or
became Ornaments, there was'nt
much heard but the squeaking of
dying pigs.,,....              	
The music of the orohestra,
Messrs. Haesler, Overand, O'Connor
and Tinmouth, ever up to the
desired standard, like good wine,
seems to improve with age.
A dainty supper was served in
the Dug-out. Messrs. Draudson
and Morrow and a host of assistants poured the coffee.
6th inning: Mine: Moran's fly
caught by Campbell; Ferguson's
fly caught by Hunter; Anderson
struck out. Elks: Greenwell,
Draudson and Whittaker struck
out.
7th. inning: Mine: Sinclair out
at first; Corckle walked; Carlson's
fly caught by Menzies; Manning
struck out. Elks: Thorley struck
out; Hunter's fly caught by
Brown; Menzie's pop to Brown

first; Brown struck out; Moran
singles; Ferguson's fly caught by
Campbell. Elks: Downs singles;
Campbell out at first; Ferguson to
Sinclair to Moran, Double play,
Downs out; Cody 2-bagger; Greenwell 2-bagger; Cody home; Elks 1
run ahead; excitement and cow
bells; Draudson struok out. Score

Successful Anyox
Sporting Season.
What has probably been the
most successful season in Anyox
(or outdoor sports is now being
brought to a close. Baseball, football and tennis are the three most
popular sports. Baseball has had
the largest number of supporters
during the summer, but football
and tennis have also had a large
number of enthusiastic fans. Some
fine exhibitions of baseball have
been given this summer by the
three contesting League teams.
All three teams were very evenly
matched, and the fans had the
pleasure of witnessing games that
would compare favorably with any
Amateur League games in the
province. It is proposed to affiliate
the Anyox League next year with
the B. C. Amateur Baseball Association and to send a team to
Vancouver to play for the amateur
championship of British Columbia.

"Safety First"
at Anyox.
The "Safety First" system instituted by the Granby Company
some four years ago has now
reached a high stage of efficiency.
Statistics show that since its inauguration the number of accidents
have decreased over 75 per cent.
This remarkable record has not
been attained without considerable
work on the part of the "safety
first" officials, Messrs. C. Wing,
and W. Jenkins, whose untiring
efforts are responsible for the
success of the scheme. It has
taken considerable time and
patience to educate the men "not
to take chances," but study "safety
first" at all times, and the work
never ceases in a big plant such as
is at Anyox, due to new men continually arriving from places where
"safety first" is unknown. The
"safety first" system, since its
institution in Anyox, has without
doubt saved the lives and limbs of
many men and also saved many a
little tot from becoming fatherless.
Mining is Active.
The mining industry is slowly
but surely returning to its old
time prosperity. Every mining
camp in the province is beginning
to show signs of awakening, and in
some parts there is already a
dearth of first-class miners. Cap
ital is beginning to flow into the
mining camps in an ever increasing
volume and new properties are
being bonded throughout the
country. The investing public are
beginning to turn again to mining
in order to increase their wealth,
and the next few years should
witness a great revival of the mining
industry of the province.

At the Annual Convention of B. C.
Elk Lodges, held at Vernon, on July
7th. and 8th. it was decided to recommend to the subordinate lodges the
responsibility of providing money and
building the first unit of a new and
fireproof building for the Children's
Aid Society of B. C.
It was the opinion of the convention
that the present per capita grant made
to the Children's Aid Society by the
Provincial Government is totally inadequate and it • was recommended
that the Provincial Government be
induced to assume a fairer share of the
responsibility of the upkeep of the
Children's Home.
Anyox Copper in Vancouver.
The Daily Province in a recent issue,
printed a photograph of part of the
7800 bars of copper matte lying at the
Canadian Pacific docks at Vancouver,
awaiting shipment to the refinery at
New York, via the Panama Canal.
The illustration is a groat boost for the
mining industry of the north and
shows what the district is capable of
producing in the way of minerals.

lance at Alice Arm Hotel
40 Anyox People Present
A very enjoyable dance was held
the Alioe Arm Hotel, on Satur-
|»y. evening last, when a party of
I'er forty people made the journey
er on the Awake.    The party
rived at the Hotel shortly after
'p.m. and dancing was soon in full
ying.   Owing to the dance not
bing properly advertised in Alice
rm, the people of that town did
|)t attend in the numbers they
ould have done had the dance
3en   more  fully  advertised.    A
bod number, however, took part
the dance after it became known
tat all were welcome, and a very
.easant  evening   was  spent   in
'uioing to the tune of the celebra-
id Anyox Orohestra, composed df.
feasvs. Haesler, piano, W. Over-
id,   violin,   and   J.   Tinmouth,
['•urns.
A sumptous supper was served
y, Mrs. E. McCoy, of the Hotel,
id   everyone   admitted    having
:)erit a very pleasant and memor-
ble evening.
Great credit is due to 'Mr.  F.

ho   were the organizers of the
soursion   from    Anyox,   and   to

told of the plans and what the cost
would be, but Mr. Buzzelle told the
Counoil that he had been in close
touoh with the people at the Mine
in connection with the matter and
they did not want a building of
any kind. What they wanted was
a covered sidewalk between the
Beaoh and the Mine, or the road
kept open all winter, which would
be an easy matter with a caterpillar trabtor. Mr. Armour did
not think it advisable to go ahead
with the building, although the
suggestion of the Secretary that a
gymnasium at the Beach should be
proceeded with. Mrs. Eve thought
that the building should be erected
between the Beaoh and Mine, and
a good building put up. Mr.
Sherman wanted a building at the
Beach, with swimming tank etc
Mr. Armour suggested that no time
be lost and thought that Mr.
Buzzelle because of his great experience in building construction
should be appointed Chairman of a
committee, with power to choose
his own assistants. This was
agreed to by the Council.
A request for the Recreation
Hall for the night of October 9th.
was granted. Mr. Selfe, on behalf
of Mr. Braithwaite stated that the
Elks would put on a vaudeville
show that night. v
A request was also made by Mrs.
Eve, for the night of October 30th,
when the Ladies Auxiliary to the
Anyox Hospital Board will arrange
a ball in aid of certain necessities
for the Hospital. This was granted, and on a motion of Mr. Rowley
seconded by Mr. Lowry, a donation
of $30 was made by the League to
the Ladies Auxiliary for expenses.

The Elk's Dance
By our Special Correspondent
Celebrating the evening of that
day dedicated to Man's happiest
pursuit, the Entertainment Committee or' the B. P. 0.. Elks pulled
off the rarin'st humdinger of a
dance yet staged north of 53.
Promptly at 9 o'clock the orchestra started off with their timer adjusted perfectly and hittin' on all
cylinders, and soon had evei-yone
"rariu' to go," aud go they did
until the second small hour of the
morning. *
The Dance Committee: Harry
Thorley, Sid Armstrong, Fred
Whittaker. Russ Jones, Pete
Draudson, and Fred Leggett announce that this is the first of a
series of dances to be given during
the winter and if they succeed in
staging more of these joyful little
parties the snow may not get too
deep for many of us.
Starting with the artistic notices
from the very clever pen of Bro.
Thorley; an excellent orchestra full
of jazz and melody; decorations
that had that unique something
that made them altogether pleasing; carnival hats and squeakers;
jazz band; Max Morrow and Ed.
Waterman's vocal jazz, and then
for a moment of seriousness, Exalted Ruler Chapman gave the eleven
o'clock   toast   to    "Our    Absent,
Brothers,"   and   then oh boy!
Jimmie Thompson and his able
assistants began to get busy with
the hot coffee and the good eats,
so kindly furnished by those wonderful cooks, the wives of Brother
Elks. Jimmie fed until he counted
two hundred and fifty guests, and
then he lost his score sheet, lost it
to such an" extent that he forgot
to save anything for himself and
his able assistants. Congratulations, Brother Bill's.   Do it again.
