Mine Club Smoker a Success
The Mine Club put over their
second big smoker of the year, last
Monday evening in the Mine Hall.
A snappy well balanced programme, consisting of songs and
instrumental numbers, along with
several boxing bouts, kept tho
large crowd present in high good
humor for the main event, which
was the wrestling match between
Dick Stubbs and Stanley Komin-
sky.
Ski'bby and Butch were the curtain raisers. These boys alternately, hugged, slugged and smiled
their way through three rounds of
boxing. Skibby was the best
smiler.
Watkins was next on the
gramme, giving a very clever
formance with his harmonica.
Gwan Moffat and Lysle Moore
slugged their way through three
torrid rounds of boxing.
Tommy Bagwill rendered two
nice numbers ou his saxophone.
Maxwell Jack gave a very creditable performance on his violin.
Frank Gordon, of the Beaoh and
George Clarke, Mine, boxed three
interesting rounds. Both these
boys showed well. -Give Gordon
..it little inoro osporionoG and these
two would put up a good decision
bout. Bud Sheen gave several
selections with his Ukelele as accompanist. Reynolds and Craggs
boxed a clever three round exhibition bout. McDougall rendered
two nicely executed cornet solos.
Teddy Halverson and V. Moore
pummelled each other for three
rounds. Powell and Arscott boxed a fast and clever exhibition.
Dick Stubbs won -the main
event from Stanley Kominsky in
two straight falls, in 8 minutes
and the second in 5 minutes,
Kominsky was the aggressor in
the first few minutes', but Stubbs
demonstrated his greater experience by squirming out of several
holds and finally pinning his opponent's shoulders to the mat.
Prior to the second fall Kominsky
was in difficulty several times, but
managed to extricate himself each
time. Both men weighed around
135 pounds.
The Mine Club Melodians were
in fine fettle, rendering several
lively numbers during the course
of the evening. Cigars, cigarettes,
and hot dogs along with liquid refreshments were served out to the
customers. Jimmie Mitchel was
the announcer keeping things on
the move in his inimitable style.
Tommy Gilmour acted as timekeeper. Pat Ryan and Billy
Reynolds alternated as referee foi'
the boxing bouts. Roynolds was
also the third man in the ring for
the wrestling contest. Much
credit is due the manager, Les.
Lane, for the wonderful sucosss of
this affair.
Granby Co. Start
Work on Standard
Trail Being Repaired First
Tlie Granby Co. commenced
operations on the Standard property on Wednesday. The first
work to be done is the repairing of
the trail from the foot of the hill
so that puck horses can be taken
through to the camp. Twelve
men will he employed. Bd.
Conway, who arrived on Tuesday
will spend considerable time on
the property during the summer.
Barle Anderson will have charge
of the work. The Standard has
an elevation of 2800 feet, and some
snow still remains on the property,
hut this will disappear by the time
the trail is completed, and surface
stripping of the ore bodies will
then be carried out.
Homeguard Has
Body of High
Grade
Members of the local Lodge
Loyal Order of Moose will visit
Alice Arm on Sunday May 31st.
and will hold their annual meeting there. AH those wishing to
go please give their name to F.
Cross, Dictator, or J. G. Ellis,
Seoretary. The Awake will leave
on Sunday morning and return
same evening.
P. Calderoni was a south-bound
passenger on Thursday,
In our issue of May 2nd. we
published an account of a new ort
Tilloovery made on the Homeguard
property by Win. McFarlane, and
that samples of the ore had been
sent out for assaying. During the
week the returns from these
samples were received, with the
following results: gold $4.00, silver 20 ozs., zinc 29 per cent, per
ton.
This new ore ledge is 5 feet wide
and is located only 300 feet from
the east bank of the Kitsault river
The high values obtained from this
ledge places the Homeguard
amongst the foremost properties of
the distriot, especially when the
big tonnage of copper ore known
to exist on the property is taken
into consideration.
Owing to its close proximity to
the Dolly Varden railway, it is
probable that the Homeguard will
be among the first properties to
be developed in the upper Kitsault
oountry.
Alice Arm Dance Held on
Saturday Was Enjoyed
The dance held last Saturday
evening in celebration of the opening of the Pioneer Hotel, was one
of the most successful affairs held
for a_ long time.' The dance was
held in the big room at the rear of
the building, which provided
ample room for the dancers. The
floor was in perfect condition, and
the orohestra in tip-top form.
The orohestra was composed of:
Mrs. T.W. Falconer, piano; Mrs.
J. Laidlaw, saxophone; Chas.
Hutchison, clarinet; R, G. Gordon,
saxophone: Lome Falconer, violin.'
A dainty supper was given by
Mrs. N. Sutilovich, and the large
number present enjoyed every
minute of the evening,
The Truth Regarding
The Dolly Varden
Exception Taken To Statement of Mining Editor
B. A. Haggen, editor of the
Mining and Engineering Record,
and mining writer for the Daily
Province, took a slam at the Alice
Arm district, in the issue of May
11th. of the Province. In revew-
ing the mining situation throughout the province he finished the
article by saying that there probably is no truth in the report that
the Tonopah Belmont Co. of Surf
Inlet, will take over the Dolly
Varden, as that mine is practically
exhausted.
We wish Mr. Haggen would enlighten us to where he got his information that the Dolly Varden
is an exhausted mine. He has
never been in the Alice Arm district, so that he can not speak
from personal experience. He
certainly never obtained his information from the Taylor Mining
Co., or Geo. Wingfield, who now
controls the property, or from R.
B. McGinnis, who was superin-
endent for the original Dolly Var-
I'en company.
The report of Mr. Geo. Hanson,
Dominion Government geologist,
does not lead one to believe that
the Dolly Varden is exhausted.
During 1921 Mr. Hanson made a
geological survey of the upper Kit-
(Jontinued on page 2
Ore Encountered In
Arberarder Tunnei
The S.S. Chilkoot arrived in
port on Thursday at 5 a.m. She
oarried a cargo of blasting powder
for G. W. Bruggy and the Home-
stake Mining Co.
Width Not Yet Determined
Silver ore was encountered in the
tunnel being driven on the Aber-
arder on Thursday, by A. McPhail
and P. Jacob. At the time of
writing the width or richness of
the ore body had not yet been determined. The ore will be cut
through to the foot wall and
samples assayed to determine the
richness.
The ore was encountered at a
distance of 300 feet from the portal
of the tunnel, aud has a vertical
depth of 100 feet. A shaft was
sunk on the surface on this ledge,
which showed the ore to have a
width of 5 feet in bottom.
The Aberarder is a short distance above the town of Alice
Arm, and its successful develop'
ment will bring another mine at
our doors, iu addition to the Esper
anza.
Popular Anyox
Couple Married
A very pretty wedding was
solemnized at the home of Mr. and
Mrs. W. Dodd on Wednesday last,
when their daughter Gladys, became the bride of Mr. E. G. Craggs.
The ceremony was performed by
the Rev. J. B. Gibson. Mr. J.
Austin presided at the piano.
The bride, bearing a beautiful
bouquet of white Iris, entered the
room, on the arm of her father
to the strains of Lohengrin's Bridal
March, and was attended by Miss
Thelma K. Deeth, who acted as
bridesmaid. The groom was supported by Mr. P. G. Wishart. At
the conclusion of the ceremony Mr.
Austin played Mendelssohn's
Wedding March. A large number of relatives and friends of the
happy young couple were iu attendance to see the nuptial knot
securely tied and wish them God
speed on their venture.

Anglican Church
Entertainment Is
Big Success
The entertainment held under
the auspices of the Anglican
Churoh in the Recreation Hall on
Friday evening last week, was one
of the best, if not the best programme presented to an Anyox
audience for some time past.
Every item was well performed
and therefore well received and
heartily encored.
The numbers deserving of
honourable mention were the Tip-
Toe work, by Frances Kelley,
Edna Herrin, Flo Kelley, Dora
Grigg and Jean Robertson, and
the Beeitation by Hattie Young.
Hattie proved herself to be quite a
finished elocutionist. The Boy
Scouts, who were trained by Mr.
Frank Dresser, also aquitted themselves in a worthy, manner and it
will be a. pleasure to listen to the
same boys at a future occasion.
It is nothing short of marvellous
how the children, under the able
direction of Mrs. F. M. Kelley,
have acquired that gracefulness of
carriage and movement so essential
to the proper bearing of every
physically well developed girl.
Mrs. Kelley, who is fortunate in
having Mrs. S. Herrin to assist
her iu her task, deserves great
credit for the progress the little
folks have made in their exposition
of the art of dancing.
The Elks' orchestra have reached a standard of perfection that
makes it a pleasure to listen to the
music they render. They have
developed the community spirit in
a marked degree and always have
been ready and willing to sacrifice
themselves by assisting in any
cause requiring their services.
Pearl Jago rendered a pianoforte solo in a most accomplished
manner.
The violin solo by Christina McLeod was highly appreciated.
The programme contained the
following:
1. Orchestral Selection The
Elks' Orchestra.
2. Duet: "Always leave them
smiling when you say good-bye."

The Truth Regarding
The Dolly Varden
Continued from page 1
sault, and in his report published
the following year, in speaking of
the Dolly Varden he says:
"The vein has been traced for 1,500
feet, but the eastern 300 feet has not
been developed underground. Mining
has been carried on in the four fault
blocks adjoining this, a horizontal distance of 300 feet. The western extension of 900 feet has not been developed underground except at the
western end where some diamond
drilling was done. This vein varies
from 8 to over 20 feet in width.
About 100 feet north of the western
extension another quartz vein is exposed, but has not been investigated.
Another large body of quartz and
brecciated rock cemented with quartz
extends into the Dolly Varden ground
from the North Star claims. This
body has been tested in two places by
diamond drilling."
Mr. Haggen, who is somewhat
an authority on mining should
have known that any company
that takes over the Dolly Varden
also acquires the Wolf, but he
ignores the Wolf property completely—probably thought it was
not even worthy of mention—yet
Mr. Hanson in his geological reports says regarding the Wolf:
"The property was only hastily examined; it contains, probably, only
two veins, but faulting has so dislocated them that they appear to be
three. They vary in width from 10 to
50 feet and are the largest known in
the district, being 1,500 feet long, as
proved by open-cuts, The metallic
minerals are chiefly pyrite, and some
galena, ruby silver, and native silver.
Development has not shown very
high values in silver, but it has indicated a large body of possible ore of
moderate to low grade, One vein
strikes north 70 degrees east and apparently dips to the northwest: the
other strikes north 20 degrees east aud
has a westerly dip."
Geo. Clothier, district mining
engineer, in his Annual Report to
the Minister of Mines for 1920
speaks very highly of the Wolf.
He says:
"This group is situated north of and
adjoining the Musketeer group and is
a portion of the holdings of the Dolly
Varden Mine. It is the proposed
terminus of the Dolly Varden Railway.
There has been a tunnel driven on the
ore for 35 feet and crosscut for 00 feet
across the vein, About 5,000 feet of
diamonnd drilling was done on it,
proving the existence of an immense
body of milling-grade ore."
It is reasonable to assume after
reading the above extracts that
Mr. Haggen has been misinformed
regarding the Dolly Varden, and
is ignorant of the existence of the
Wolf property, or that he is taking a slam at the whole district in
order to divert capital to the
southern part of the province.
In view of the fact that Mr.
Haggen has never examined the
Dolly Varden, it is a wild statement to make that the mine is exhausted, when the property comprises seven claims, of which only
a small portion has been developed. It is true that tho Taylor Co.
gutted the mine of all  high-grade
easily accesible, but it is also true
that they did very little development work. It is inconceivable
that a man of Mr. Haggen's standing should make such a statement
unless lie has trustworthy inform
ation. No company or individual
owning the property has ever
made the statement that the mine
is exhausted. If Mr. Wingfield
was under that impression he
would never have entailed the expense of upkeep during the pas,t
five years, but would have abandoned both the Dolly Varden and
the Wolf.
If Mr. Haggen can sit in a Vancouver office, 700 milos away, and
tell us the amount of ore remaning
in the Dolly Varden hill, he is a
super-mining man, of an unknown
species.
We have had a hard fight to induce capital to enter this district,
since the Taylor Mining Co. "shot
their bolt" on the Dolly Varden,
and statements similar to Mr.
Haggen's certainly does not make
it any easier. We "are going to
have a big mining camp here, however, and statements similar to
Mr. Haggen's, while impeding our
natural growth, can not destroy.
Smelter Footballers
Defeat Mine 4-0
The Smelter eleven jumped into
the lead of the football league last
Friday evening, when they defeated the Mine 4 goals to nil.. The
losers were severely handicapped,
through the absence of three of
their regulars, and would have no
doubt put up a much better argument if this had not been the case.
The winners, however, played
first class football all the way,
through combination play being
excellent. There was no scoring
in the first half, the Miners playing a lively defense game, but they
cracked wide open in the last
stanza. Steve McKeown got
through for the first one, Powell
the next two and Dewar the last
one. Powell's second contribution
was a beautiful shot from well outside the penalty area, Kirkland
played a strong game at full baok
for the winners. Dearlove worked
hard for the losers. Jimmie
Twaddle was the referee and kept
the game well in hand,

Anyox P. T. A. Hold
Monthly Meeting
Interesting Address on Radio
Given by W. F. Eve
The regular monthly meeting of
tho Anyox P. T. A. was held at
the home of Mr. and Mrs. W. P.
Eve on Tuesday last week. The
president, Mrs. L. McAllister, presiding.
Mr. J. Mitohell reported having
interviewed the Community
League with reference to the possibility of securing the ball Park
for use of the boys and girls attending the public High Schools.
He stated the A. C. L. were in
sympathy with the endeavour to
provide recreation facilities for the
young people and promised to do
all in their power to assist. He
also reported having purohased a
football and sweaters for use of the
boys.
It was decided to award three
prizes in the High School and six
in the Public School for the best
essay on, "The World's Goodwill
Day."
The closing meeting of the season, which will take the form of a
social and dance, will be held on
Friday, June 19th.
At the close of the business session, the president called upon Mr.
W. F. Eve, to deliver his lecture
on radio. This Mr, Eve proceeded
to do in a most able and instructive manner.
He explained the principles
underlying radio and the mechanism and functioning of a receiving
set. Everyone was intensely interested and listened with wrapt
attention throughout. Several
questions were asked at the close
of the lecture which Mr. Eve
answered to the satisfaction of all.
He then gave an example of the
capabilities possessed by the
beautiful receiving set he has recently installed, by tuning in to
the various Broadcasting Stations,
making one feel that the world is
getting smaller day by day.
Mr. Eve favoured with a vocal
solo, which was much appreciated.
A vote of thanks to Mr. and
Mrs. Eve was moved by Mr. R H.
Manzer and^ passed by acclamation.
Refreshments were served by
Mrs. Scott and the meeting adjourned.

The Alpine Club had their
initial outing last Sunday, when
several of the members made an
attempt to scale the hill behind the
hospital. One budding young
mountaineer was fortunate (or unfortunate) to reach half way to the
summit, whereupon he found himself unable to proceed further, alas!
he found he was also unable to
descend. An S.O.S was sent for
Smitty, who after many hazardous
attempts (which had the entire
populace of Anyox gasping) managed by aid'of a rope and much
perseverance  to effect a rescue.
The Mine and Beach played to a two
all draw in Tuesday evening's football
encounter. Neither team was up to
full strength, the Miner's played with
nine men. The play was fairly evenly
distributed, although the Miners played a defensive game to a great extent.
Jack scored both goals for the Mine,
while Ellison notched the two for the
Beach.   J. Evans was the referee.
Teams were: Beach: Hunter,
Craggs, Taylor. Evans, Lavery, Hogben, Ingram, Mahoney, Ellison, Wilson, Boyd.
Mine: Halverson, Royle, Peters,
