Mining Active at
Alice Arm
Considerable  interest   is   being
(manifested by mining men in the
country in the immediate vioinity
I of Alice Arm.   The fact, that the
t Esperanza has recently been sold
to local jnen for a substantial sum
1 and a new strike of high grade ore
on the Alice group, has given an
impetus to mining in this section.
That consistent shipper of high
grade ore, the Esperanza, is now
working nine men, and shipping of
ore commenced again this week.'
In our last issue we mentioned
that the Alice joined the Esperanza
on the north-westside, but such is
not the case. The Lone Maid
property lying between the Esperanza and Alice.
The new strike of high grade ore
on the Alio?, was made within 250
feet of the Lone Maid line, and
from examinations, of the country
made by local men, it is claimed
that the ore ledge on the Alice can
be traced clear across the Lone
Maid oh to the Esperanza. If such
is the case it will be. .only a matter
of a very • short time before more
high grade ore in uncovered in this
section. ..     > ...■■';
The owners of the Alice are
'making arrangements for the commencement of operations on that
property. High grade ore, com
posed of ruby silver and silver
sulphides is in sight on the surface,
and the mining of Ore can be un-
. dertaken as soon as operations are
commenced. •
There is every prospect of considerable " mining activity being
undertakem in this section in the
. near future. The Esperanza mine
is looking better all the time, and
is rapidly developing into a steady
shipper, and with the Alice shipping ore and the Lone Maid in
operation, the prospects will be exceedingly bright. All the. above
named properties are within easy
distance of the Dolly. Varden Railway and within two miles of the
town of Alice Arm.

assisted by the Elk's Jazz Band.
The orchestra consisted of Messrs.

and-under the leadership of Mike
Cranley, it was a howling success.
The other members of the band are
Sam Downs, Jack Sherman, Ed.
Waterman, Harry Downs, Jack
Smith, Max Morrow, Cy. Greenwell and Harry Chapman.
The prize for the three best
words represented- by letters,
E L K was won by Mrs. E.

also made, Bob McMillan being the
lucky holder.

Sensational Strike
of High Grade Ore
at Esperanza
A sensational strike of high
silver ore, was made at the Esperanza mine yesterday afternoon.
The strike was made in the Baldy
tunnel, and is a continuation of the.
vein on which the tunnel was
started by the Salinas Bros., some
years ago. The vein is 18 inohes
wide, and the ore is composed of
ruby and brittle silver^ and silver
sulphides, and samples of Ore
brought down the hill yesterday
evening prove ooholusively that the
strike is the riches%t that has been
made in the district for a long
time.
The strike places the Esperanza
in the category of the riohest mines
in the district and probably in the
province.
The new owners are to be congratulated on-their good luck, and
the old saying still' holds good
"that a man who is afraid to take
chances has no business in the
mining game."

Alice Arm as a
Summer Resort.
A large number of Anyox
visitors are spending their summer
holidays at Alice Arm this year,
and all are happy and contented.
Those that were here last year are
glad to be back again, and those
who are visiting here for the first
time vow to return again next
summer. The number of visitors
this year far exceeds the number
of any previous year. Alice Arm
is just beginning to be appreciated
~ by the Anyox people as a holiday
resort, and the people of the
smelter town realize that they can
spend as. enjoyable a holiday 18
miles from home as though they
travelled 600 miles. Holiday
visitors from Anyox are always
welcome to the mining camp at the
head of Alice Arm, and everything is done to make their stay as
pleasant as possible. Although
this year has seen the largest
number of visitors from Anyox,
yet next year promises to be still
better, already plans are under
way to provide accomodation for
more people next summer. It is
to be hoped that the plans mature
and that the people of Anyox will
take advantage of the opportunity
to spend a holiday amidst pleasant
surroundings at a minimum cost.
Community League
Summer Camp.
"Never give a knock when you
can boost." The Anyox Community League are to be complimented on the manner in which
they have handled their summer
camp at Alice Arm this year.
The spacious Alice Arm Hotel
was Required for the use of "anyone
who wanted to take advantage of
spending a week's holiday in this
up-to-date Hotel. Free Transportation, was provided by, the
League and the only expense incurred by the visitors was their
board. By this arrangement a
large number of people have spent
holidays in Alice Arm who would
not otherwise have left home. All
the guests have been perfectly satisfied with the arrangements made
for their comfort. The Community League Council is satisfied
and the same can be said
of the Hotel management, and also
residents of Alice Arm. Everyone concerned has derived benefit
from »the project.
Fire Danger.
FIRE! that dread cry that sets
our hearts jumping and tingles the
blood has not yet been heard this
summer in Alice Arm. We have
been extremely fortunate that no
fire has broken out either in the
woods or in the town, but •> the
danger is^t yet over and will not
be until the present spell of exceptionally dry weather breaks. Be
careful when you throw away your
matches, etc. whether in town or
in the woods, for a fire started now
would without doubt sweep the
country far and wide.

The Anyox Elk's Ball team who
travelled to Prince Bupert last week,
gave a first class exhibition of base'
ball to the' 400 fans who witnessed the
game, and although beaten by the
score of 54 by their brothers of the
terminal city, they were by no means
disgraced. The game, which was the
snappiest played on the Prince Bupert
diamond this year, was started off by
Anyox in fine style. They scored two
runs in the first innings, Cy. Green

Portland.Canal News, the Premier
Gold  Mining Company made an
offer for an option to purchase, for

The offer also provided that if the
Selukwe people would extend the
time the Premier would increase
the bond price.   In answer to this
!offer   the Selukwe representative

This suggestion, Mr. Guess, acting
for    the   Premier,    declined,   to
consider.
It will be remembered that the
