Forest Fire Rages
At Alice Arm All
Week
Fire Checked By Rain and
Heroic Efforts of Willing
Workers
The worst forest fire the people
of Alice Arm have ever experienced
occurred during the early part of
the week. The fire started about
four miles down the inlet, near the
old Molybdenum mining camp, on
Sunday afternoon, and before it
was brought under control it had
covered an area of ov«r three
square miles and destroyed one of
the finest stands of timber in the
district.
Fanned by a strong wind on
Sunday afternoon the fire spread
with alarming rapidity, and it
was soon evident that measures
would promptly have to be taken
in an endeavor to control it.
Fire Ranger S. Briggs, acted
speedily. In a short space of
time he had a force of 80 men on
the scene. Owing to the high
winds carryiiig sparks high iirthe
air and dropping them all over
the country, coupled with the
dense clouds of smoke, which
drove the fire fighters back, the
work of holding the fire on Sunday was extremely difficult.
When the wind subsided in the
evening, a better opportunity was
given to uombat the blaze, and the
army of half-cooked smoke-dried
fire fighters worked like demons.
Throughout Sunday uight the
fire burned furiously, and for a
length of two miles along the
shore, the woods were a sea of
flame, and as the giants of the
woods came crashing down millions
of sparks made an awe inspiring
scene, and the onlookers realized
the destructive power of a forest
fire when raging at its height.
On Monday, the high wind of
the previous day had died down,
and the fire fighters, led by Fire-
Ranger Briggs, were given a
chance to combat the blaze. Wide
swaths were cut through the
woods, and the fire stopped from
spreading.
Early on Tuesday morning the
hottest spell of the year was broken by a heavy rain, whioh continued until the following day,
and all datiger of the fire spreading was over.
Chief Fire Ranger Grittan arrived ou Tuesday morning from
Prince Rupert, and took charge.
He was determined to extinguish the til*, and on Wednesday
a force of forty men were working
in the woods.
This force was augmented
throughout the week. Yesterday
a small army, comprising nearly
every able-bodied man in town,
were called to the scene of eon-
flagation. A large number of
business men were among those
who left yesterday. It is the
intention of Fire Ranger Grittan
to continue to fight the fire until
all danger  of spreading is   past.
Death of Well Known
Anyox Resident
The death occurred on Friday
August 8, at the Anyox Hospital,
of Mr. Fred Woolston. The cause
of death was Bright's Disease.
He had been siok for some time.
Deceased was a resident of
Anyox for a number of years, and
his many friends were shocked to
hear of his death. He leaves to
mourn his loss a wife and young
son, his father aud mother and
brother residing in Victoria.
Funeral Services were held at
the Anglican Church, on Thursday
Rev. J. B. Gibson officiating A
large number of friends were
present, and following the ceremony the remains were forwarded to
Victoria for burial.
The heart-felt sympathy of the
community, is extended to Mrs.
Woolston and son in their sad
bereavement.
Gasoline Explosion On
Alice Arm Launch
The danger of exposing a light
in the vicinity of gasoline was
vividly illustrated during the week
when the launch "Billy Mao"
blew up and caught fire with three
men on hoard.
The launch was on the ways,
and a leak in the gasoline tank
was being repaired by Messrs. Roy
McKinley, owner, Sam Wickwire
and William Cody. As they descended below the explosion occurred. W. Cody was blown off the
boat, and R. McKinley and S.
Wickwire were thrown into the
engine room. Cody received
slight burns on hands and face,
and was the only one injured.
The boat caught fire, but the
hull was saved, and the engine is
undamaged. Mr. R. McKinley
will immediately Undertake repairs.
Alice Arm Logging Co.
Ships Nine Million Feet
The big tug boat Cape Scott
arrived in port during the week,
and took out logs totalling approximately 2.000,000 feet b. m. from
the oamp of the Abbotsford Logging Co. This makes a total of

Developed
Another big mine, and one
which undoubtedly will be among
the biggest shippers of the province
is being developed in the Atlin
country says Mr. J. A. Stephen,
who arrived in Alice Arm recently
from that point. This property is
the famous Engineer mine, which
was closed down for a number of
years due to litigation. Eastern
capital is now developing the property with a force of seventy men.
Plans are being made for the construction of a large mill, power
plant, and other work. Tlie Engineer mine is said to be one of the
richest gold properties in Canada
and some fine samples of ore were
brought out by Mr. Stephen.

Toric Property
Bonded
Development Work To Start
Immediately
In our last issue we stated that
the Homestake Mining Co. were
taking over the Toric property.
During the week, agreements were
signed, and the property will be
developed by the Homestake Mining Co.
The bonding price of the property is $100,000. No cash payment has been made. The first
payment is due one year from the
signing of the agreement, and the
final payment the following year.
The Homestake Co. will drive 45
feet of tunnel per month during
the first year, making a total of
540 feet.
The tunnel will be commenced
near the railway grade, and is
expected to strike the ore ledge
at a distance of 300 feet from the
portal.
A compressor plant will be installed, capable of operating one
drill. Camp buildings are now
under construction, and the prop
erty will be operated throughout
the coming winter.
It is also the intention of the
Homestake Co. to continue development of the Homestake mine at
the Kitsault Glacier, which property they have operated intermittently for the past few years.
The Toric property is considered
to be one of the most promising
properties in the whole of Alioe
Arm District. The property contains several good ore ledges, and
high grade ore carrying over
9000 ozs. silver per ton has been
found. Samples taken across 22
inches on the No. 2 ore ledge have
given returns of 103 ozs. silver
per ton. Another sample taken
across 3 feet gave 107.4 ozs. per
ton.
The owners of the property are
Messrs. J. Strombeek, G. Strombeek, and Al. Miner. It was
located in 1914 and consists of
four claims. It adjoins the North
Star on the east, which joins the
Dolly Varden. The high grade
found on the Toric lies about
3000 feet northeast ofthe Dolly
Varden Glory Hole.

The Forest Fire
Despite the propaganda broadcasted by the Provincial and
Federal governments, and the unceasing campaign that is being
carried on by the press throughout the country, the burning of
our forests goes on unabated.
During the week the town of
Alice Arm, and the valuable
timber wealth surrounding it were
both threatened with destruction
from a fire that was started by
careless campers. If the fire had
not been checked by the heavy
rain which fell when it was at its
worst, the timber wealth surrround-
ing the town would have been
wiped out, and our living would
have vanished, and possibly our
homes. No one would leave a
fire burning on the veranda of one
of our leading stores, and cause
possible damage running into
thousands of dollars, yet the same
people will unthinkingly leave a
fire burning in the woods, which
would probably cause the loss of
timber worth millions of dollars.
It should be realized that the timber in the district is drying out,
and each year the danger of fire
increases. We were lucky this
time, but the next time, we may
not be so fortunate.
Granby   Co.   Produced   57
Per Cent, of Provincial
Copper Last Year
The Granby Company at Anyox
produced about 57 per cent of the
total production of copper in
British Columbia last year, while
the Britannia, on Howe Sound, is
responsible for about 38 per cent
of the total. The remainder of the
output of the province is divided
between Belmont Surf Inlet mine
in the Skeena district, the Ross-
and camp, Boundary-Yale division,
and the Tidewater Copper Company on the west coast of Vancouver Island.
The copper production in 1923
in British Columbia was 57,720,-
290 pounds, or about 25,000,000
pounds more than in 1922. Its
total value was $8,323,266 as compared with |4,329,754 the previous
year.
Granby Co's June Copper
Production
The Granby Co. produced 3,100,000
pounds of copper during June of this
year.

Future Price of Silver Will
Be Higher
Experts agree that the price of
silver will continue to rise. The
pause is attributed to renewed Euro-
peari demand for new coinage, now
that a settlement has been made
between the great nations.
The average price of silver for the
year 1920 was 100.9 cents an ounce,
and for 1921 it was 62.85 cents, for 1922
it was 07.52, while for 1923 it was 64.87
sents.
Big Canadian Railway
Mileage
Canada has one mile of railway to
every 220 people, a larger mileage in
proportion to population than any
other country, with a total mileage of
nearly 40000. The'government owns or
controls a mileage of 22,600—the Canadian National Railways—making it
the largest public owned system in
the world.

Anyox Baseball and
Football
Continued from page 1.
Three games of baseball have been
played since we last went to press.
The Mine und Smelter met twice, the
result being one tie game and one win
for the Smelter. The third game
brought together the Elks and Smelter
which turned out to be a win for the
former.
Smelter and Mine Tie
In Thursday night's encounter, both
teams used two chuckers. Fitzpatrick
started for the Gas Eaters, but retired
in favor of Wells in the fifth.
Anderson made his debut on the
mound foi* the miners and pitched
excellent ball, but was forced th retire
because of a sore arm. Darkness put
an end to hostilities in the seventh
with the score six all.
Smelter Defeat Miners
On Saturday evening, the Smelter
took the miners into camp to the tune
of seven to two. Cecil Ferguson had
one bad inning—the third—when the
Gas Eaters got to him for six bingles,
which with two errors thrown in netted them six runs. Fitzpatrick was in
good form for the winners, although
the miners got to him for several nice
hits he managed to keep them well
scattered.
Elks Win From Smelter 8-1
Cn Monday evening, the Antlered
Herd retained the League leadership
by administering a drubbing to the
Gas Eaters. The score was eight to
one. Benny Fitzpatrick started on
the hill for the winners, but two runs
in the first inning and four in the
third was too much for Benny, so he
was chased and Wells took up the
burden. The "Bills" gathered two
more counters off Wells in the seventh
when Greenwell and Cody scored on
Hall a two-base smash. Wells scored
the Smelter's lone tally in the fourth,
when he tripled to left centre and
scored on Loeske's single.
Close Race Made By Base*
ball Teams
The baseball race has been a' tight
one this year, and there still remains
a doubt as to which two teams will be
in the play-off series. The Elks are
assured of a place after Monday
night's win. The Smelter will have to
win one of their two remaining games
in order to finish second in the League
standing. By winning both they can
tie the Elks for first place.
The total amount of lead produo
ed in 1923 was 96,663,152 lb.,
valued at $6,321,770. This represents, as compared with the
previous year, an increase in
quantity of 29,215,167 lb., and in
value of $2,841,454.
If a man fails to get what he really
deserves he ought to be thankful.
