Alice Arm Liberal
Association
Formed
A well attended meeting of the
Liberals of Alioe Arm, was held in
the Coliseum, on Wednesday evening, May 17th.   The meeting was
called for the purpose of forming
an Association and electing officers.
Mr, C. P. Riel acted as chairman;
The following officers were elected:
Hon. President—H. F. Kergin,
M. L. A.
President—C. P. Riel
VioeTPresident—S. Dumas
Secretary—W. Cummings
Treasurer—G. W. Bruggy
Executive  Committee—A. Falconer, W. McDonald, J. Fiva.
After the election of officers the
question of sending a delegate to
the Provincial Liberal Convention
to be held in June, came up for
discussion, and it was decided to
leave the matter in the hands of
the Executive Committee to devise
ways and means of raising the
necessary funds, at a future meeting!
The Association is off with a
good start, twenty new members
having joined during the meeting.
All supporters of the Liberal party
are requested to attend the next
meeting and help along the good
cause. A local Liberal Association
has been needed for a long time, in
order to help further the interests
of the district, and now that one is
formed it is up to the supporters of
good olean government to help it
along.
New Ore Body
at Esperanza
Property is Looking Good
More ore has been encountered
at the Esperanza mine, which is
situated about one mile from Alice
Arm. The ore was found in the
upper workings and the vein is
2 feet in width. The tunnel in
which the ore was found is the
oldest tunnel at the mine, and was
driven in 1911 in order to strike
some out-oroppings in the oreek
bed, but did not reaoh the ore.
Mr. Elge, manager at the mine,
deoided a short time ago to lengthen the tunnel, and struck the ore
after driving a few feet. It is ex-
peoted that a considerable .body of
ore will be developed, but work at
present is suspended on this particular showing, owing to the large
quantity of water ooming in the
tunnel. Work will be resumed as
soon as the ground dries out.
The Esperanza has all the
appearances of developing into a
shipping mine of considerable proportions* in the near future.
Systematic development work is
being steadily proseouted,' with
very encouraging results.
Anyox Baseball
Elks Win in Opening Game
of Season
If the opening game of the Anyox
Baseball League is any criterion,
the fans are in for a season of real
good sport. Notwithstanding the
fact that the ground was not in
the best of shape, nor had the
ground some time prior to the
opening day been favorable -for
consistent practice, the game was
splendidly contested by both teams
and was sure an exhibition of the
grand old game. For the Smelter,
Fitzgerald and Stewart did the
battery work while Draudson and
Robertson held down the same
same positions for the Elks. Both
pitchers were steady and had good
support, the fielding being remarkably free from errors. There were
eight hits off Fitzgerald and four
off Draudson according to the score
card. The Elks batters connected
with the ball when,, their hits
counted. Sherman 'handled the
snappiest play of the game when
he stopped a hot grounder and
nipped the batter nicely at first.
He also scored the only tally for
the<S«M".ters.- -Downs for -the ElkH
got three nice hits, and he crossed
the plate for two of the Elks total,
Thorley scoring the other one;
The game went seven innings, the
score being 3 to 1 in favor of the
"Brother Bills." The innovation
of a paid umpire met with the
approval of the fans, and Ed.
Waterman handled the game extremely well, and if he keeps
starting the players away prompt
on time through the season and
keeps them moving through^the
games, it will give grfcat satisfaction, because good ball must be
all snap.
The line-up was as follows:
Elks Smelter
Draudson P. Fitzgerald
Robertson O. Stewart
Thorley gist. b. Boye
Downs i 2nd. b. Sherman
Greenwell        3rd. b. Madder

The sympathy of Anyox this
week is extended to Mr. and Mrs.
W. Crear, who this week lost their
infant son Alexander, who died in
the Hotpital on the morning of
May 16th. The baby was born on
February 6th, and was home only
a short time when he took sick and
was taken to the hospital where he
got the best of attention, and had
every appearance q| being well
enough to go home, but on Sunday
night had a relapse.' and passed
away on Monday morning.
Internment took place at the
cemetery, on May 16. Rev. J. B.

Alice Arm is
Going Ahead
Town Has Great Future
Two 'new organizations have
been formed in Alice Arm within
the last two weeks; new stores
are going up; new mining companies are coming in; new bodies
of ore'are being found; new trail
systems are being considered, and
new people are arriving. Why all
this excitement,? the stranger may
ask, and the answer is: because
Alice Arm holds the key to the
rich mineral belts of the Kitsault
and Illiance Valleys; it is the gateway to the rich agricultural and
mineral lands of the famous Naas
Valley, and the natural deep sea
port for the Peace River wheat
lands and the Groundhog coal
fields. Is it any wonder new
stores are going up, and new
people are coming in to investigate
the possibilities of this future city
of the Pacific Coast.? Alice Arm
has received sorhe jolts in the past
and has weathered them magnificently, and the people who have
shared her fortunes and misfortunes
Stand ready to reap the reward of
their optimism and perseverance.
Anyox Football
Smelter Wins Game from
Elks by 4 Goals
A soccer team representing the
Smelter took the Elk's team into
oamp last Friday night to the tune
of 4 goals to nothing. Just what
happened to the antlered herd on
this particular occasion has not yet
been satisfactorily divulged, nor do
the alibis ventured offer any real
explanation of the result. The
Smelters had an easy time, but the
Elks made it just that easy for
them by playing ragged football
throughout the periods of the play.
At half time the score was 1 to 0
in favor of the "gas eaters," who
started kioking down hill. It was
expected that when the positions of
the teams were reversed for the
seoond period that the Elks would
soon equalize this, but the dope
was all wrong, and kioking against
the grade the Smelters landed
three more, and stopped 'the Elk's
from scoring. Joe Hart with the
whistle, kept pretty close tab on
the play and gave the fans no
chance to crab at his decisions.
Here's the way they lined up:
Smelter: goal, Farrell; backs,
McKenzie & Kirkland; half-backs,
Gilmour, Stewart and Barton; forwards, Brown, Dodd, Sherman,
Mahoney and Fitzpatrick. Elks:
goal, Gray: baoks, Roberts and
Robertsqn; half-baoks, Crear, E.
N. Ballion and Wilson; forwards,
Armstrong, Cane, Robertson, Fitzgerald and H. T. Ballion.
Community League
Council Meeting
A Large Amount of Business
Transacted
The regular weekly meeting of
the Community League Council
was held in the Recreation Hall,
on Wednesday evening, May 17, at
the usual hour. In the absence of
the President and Vice-President,
Messrs. Williscroft and Conway,
Mr. Armour was appointed to the
chajr. Councillors present, were:
Mrs. McKay, and Messrs. Morrow,
Murdoch, Simpson, Buzelle, and*
Barr. s
After the minutes of the previous
meeting were read and approved,
and the secretary's report read, the
Council took up the request of Mr.
E. Waterman for a refund of an
equity held by him in the orchestra
instruments taken over by the
League some time ago, and for
which' there is still, an amount
owing at the Granby Company's
Stores. It appears that the Council agreed to return the amount of
subscriptions received, toward payment of the instruments when
these were first secured, vand
though Mr. Waterman did not
contribute the amount requested in
cash from his pocket, he held that
he and his associates in the orches
tra had contribute^ as a result of
their labor $lt2.00, which was
paid to the store as a result of
dances given by them, and contended that he was entitled to the
amount asked for.    Considerable
discussion took  place  over   tne
matter, and Mrs. Eve, who was
present volunteered some history
in connection with the instruments
and payments made on the same.
Mr. Murdoch thought that Mr.
Waterman was entitled to the full
amount of his claim and moved
that he be paid. This was second-
by Mr. Simpson and carried.
The secretary was then instructed to take charge of the
instruments. Mr. Buzelle suggested that whoever wanted the use of
them in future should pay some
rental, but a motion by _Mr. Murdoch, which was seconded by Mr.
Simpson, was approved by the
Council, to the effeot that no
charges should be made for the use
of the instruments when required
for anything in connection with A.
C. L. activities. Mr. Selfe suggested that the instruments be
appraised.       "">
In connection with a certain
part of the ball grounds, Mr.
Simpson thought a few loads of
gravel would be benefioial and
might prevent a serious accident.
The matter was left to the secretary to remedy.
The Chair suggested that a
rubber stamp be secured for the
Library, for the purpose of stamping all magazines and periodicals,
requesting patrons not to remove
them   from  the  Reading  Room.
This was approved by the Council.
Mr. Buzelle wanted to know how
much money was taken in at the
first ball game through subscriptions. The secretary reported an
amount of $18.25.
The question or / where the
Granby News was to be published
in its new form was asked by the
Chair. The secrets*/ informed
the meeting that it had not as yet
been decided, but it would prob-,
ably be printed at Prince Rupert
for the time being.
Mr. Buzelle moved that the
secretary interview the management of the Granby Co. for the
purpose of ascertaining whether or
not it was'nt possible to get a reduction in the price of the soccer
and baseball goods lately purchased
by the League. This was seconded
by Mr. Barr and passed by the
Council.
On the question of paying
umpires and referees officiating at
the baseball and soccer games, Mr.
Simpson took a decided stand, and
wanted to see this done away with.
It was finally deoided to await the
presence at the Council of a
membor of the Ways and Means
Committee.
The members of the Theatre
Orchestra waited on the Council
and asked for an agreement of four
.months duration so that they
could make some improvement in
their equipment, and be sure of
steady employment for that
length of time. Mr. Selfe was
asked to give his views on the
matter, and stated that the patrons
of the show as well as he himself
were very well satisfied with the
music of Messrs. Hayden and
Martin, who were satisfied with a
verbal assurance, but Mr. Simpson
felt that it' would be better if a
written agreement were drawn up,
and which the Council would
expect to work both ways, Messrs.
Hayden and Martin giving' the
Council the assurance that they
would have first call on their services for the same length of time.
This was agreed to and the musicians decided that in the future
their aggregation would be known
as the A. C. L. orchestra.
Mr.   Murdoch   brought  up the
question of an outing to Alice Arm
or some other place, for the kiddies
of  Anyox,   this coming summer.

Building Brisk
at Alice Arm
Another building is in the course
of erection at Alice Arm. Mr.-
Wilson, who arrived last week from
Vancouver is busily engaged in"
erecting a store on Telegraph
Street to be used at a butcher shop
as the smaller store at the rear
end of the lot will not be large
enough to handle the business this
ooming summer. The building is
being   rushed   with   all    possible
speed.

This is for the Benefit
of all Logging Liars
A whole lot of "con" stories have
been told around the buukhouse
stoves of the logging and mining
camps throughout the west regarding the celebrated Paul Bunyan
and his remarkable feats of
strength and skill. The stories,
however, that has been told about
Paul since he came west has sometimes been exaggerated, and this
has caused one of our subscribers
to send the following letter.
The letter is from Way Point
from "an old logger on the job,"
and is for the edification of all
loggers in this neck of the woods
who claim to have broken records
or to have known men who broke
them in handling logs.
"Having worked with Paul
Bunyan on some" of his biggest
jobs, it gets under my skin to read
some of the atrocious suggestions
that have been written about him
of late. Anyone can see with half
an eye that they are absolutely im-
impossible. Back in 1820 I was
with him when he wrecked the
Bridge of Gods, because it had
been oondemned as a menace to
river traffic. I came west with
him the following year, when he
signed a contract to clear the
prairie of timber and level it off in
ninety days, whioh he did ten days
before the specified time, I also
accompanied him to the coast and
was with him when he dug the
Portland Canal.
The speediest job I ever saw him
do, though, was4n a oontest with
an Irish woods boss from one of the
southern pine camps. This Irish
man had worked up a local repu
tation and thought he was riding
astride the world until he sent a
challenge to Paul stating that he
was the better faller of the two
and demanding a match. They
decided to meet in the redwoods.
Thousands flooked there to see
these two supermen.
"The referee picked out two big
redwoods, each 34 feet in diameter
and 240 feet high, and the men
took their places. The starter's
whistle popped and before tho echo
had died away Paul had burned
out three saws- and flattened the
edges of five axes putting in his
undercut. Grabbing a new 40-foot
saw he started to put her down.
So last did he saw that it took 17
men to keep him supplied with
saws, and there was a stream of
melted steel pouring out of the saw
out. As fast as one melted Paul
put in a new one. He perspired so
much that the spectators had to
take to the trees to keep dry, and
finally when the tree cracked the
sweat was so deep that Paul was
treading water and sawing.
"Well, when that tree leaned to
an angle of 65 degrees Paul
grabbed a bucking saw and ran up
it 20 feet and bucked off a log,
then another 20 feet, and by the
time the tree was down it was all
bucked up into 20 foot logs, and
Paul had done a swan dive from
the last one, 80 feet in the air.
They looked around and were surprised to see the Irishmen's tree
still standing with a cut about 20
feet deep in it, and him missing.
However, he had written on a
paper the following: 'As a logger
I'm a good bull^cook."
Shipments of Premier ore is
arriving regularly every week.
Summer sports are now in full
swing, and the outlook is bright
for a season of good sport. All the
players are in the pink of condition.
Napoleon Draudson, one of the
Elks famous twirlers says he is in
better form than ever. Look Out
Boys.
Mining machinery for the Mamie
property which is situated on
Hudson Bay mountain, near
Smithers has arrived, and is being
transported to the property. The
shipment includes a complete compressor plant and water wheel for
the change to power work after a
year of hand drilling in driving the
original tunnel. It is expected
that everything will be ready .for
operation by June 1st. About 25
men will be employed.
A town is just like an auto
going up hill—when it refuses to
g(> forward it goes backward.

Anyox Parent-Teacher
Association Meeting
Interesting Address by Mr.
Pinder-Moss
The regular May "meeting of the
Anyox Parent-Teacher Association, was held on Friday evening,
May 12th, in the New Sohool. A
good turnout of members were
present to enjoy a programme pro^
vided by the school staff. The
teachers were fortunate in securing
Mr. John Pinder-Moss, organizer
of the Polyteohnic, as speaker for
the occasion.
In a very informative and illuminating address, Mr. Pinder-Moss
stated the case most effectively for
technical education. Developing
his 'subject 'from the observation
that all nature adopts business
principals, as indicated by systematic building by birds, and by the
fact that the brain of primitive
man drove his hand to provide the
necessities of life. The speaker
showed how this co-operation of
knowledge and practice would increase the efficiency of our present
system of education. The age
when the masters taught their
apprentices skilled craftmanship
had passed, and now the necessity
arises for our present day schools
to prevent the boys and girls from
being forced to enter their chosen
trades ineffectively equipped to
meet the practical problems of
business life. Technical education
not only effects a happy choice in
one's career, but it puts into
practice, in sohool days the pupils
academical knowledge and furnishes the natural means of
working  harmony   of brain and*

hand, which is most fitting for
future men and women of practical
affairs. Under this system interest
is easily sustained, and dicipline
readily maintained.
In no centre in America continued the speaker, could there be
better opportunities or facilities
available for the encouragement of
this form of education. With the
establishment in Anyox we hope of
a wood-working and household
science center in connection with
the schools in the near future, the
"Tech" idea will be fostered and
will develop and nourish we feel
sure.
Very delightful musical numbers
were~provided in the form of a
vocal solo—Japanese Love Song,
by Mrs. B. J. .Conway, and a violin
selection—Henry Vlllth. Dance,
by Mr. Parker. It was a treat
indeed to enjoy this part of the
programme.
Considerable pleasure was afforded the patients of the local hospital
on the evening of May the 9th,
when the P. T. A. members put on
some of the sketches from our last,
Dickens' Evening, and we are glad
to thank those who made that
pleasureable occasion possible by
their unstinted time and effort.

of endeavour.        .,'
