More Ore at

The high grade vein of ore in the
Baldy tunnel at the Esperanza
mine, has widened out to a width
of three feet and the outlook for
this property is exceedingly bright.
Work is again to be undertaken
in the upper, tunnel, now that it
has dried out. Ore was encountered in this tunnel early in the
spring, but owing to tiie large
amount of water coming in, work
had to be suspended. It is antici-
that another body of ore will be
opened up in this tunnel.
Five hundred sacks of highgrade
ore are at the mine ready to come
down the hill, and thirty tons of
low grade ore running about 45
ozs. silver pe» ton is in the bunkers.
Work on bringing this ore down
will commence next week.
The working staff at the mine
has lately, been increased, and it is
the intention of the management
to ship ore throughout the year.

ALICE   ARM   AND   ANYOX   HERALD,   Alice Arm,   Saturday, June 3, 1922
The Herald's
First Birthday.
With this week's issue, the
Herald is just one year of age;
being born on June 4th, 1921.
We, however, missed three issues
during the year, and are therefore
carrying all those who subscribed
at the commencement of publication, an extra three weeks, which
will be to June 17th. We wish
to extend our hearty thanks to
everyofie who have supported the
paper during the past year. The
past year has witnessed the greatest trade depression of modern
times, but so far* we have weathered the storm; the outlook is getting
brighter all the time, and we hope
to continue the publication of the
Herald for a good many years to
come. It is our ambition to
enlarge this paper as soon as conditions warrant, and our readers
may rest assured that no efforts will
be spared to give, them as large
and newsy a paper as it is possible
to produce under the circumstances.
A big subscription campaign
will be staged in Anyox this
month for the Herald. Everyone
will be canvassed for subscriptions.
The subscription rate will be
reduced to $2.25 per year, and
$1.25 for six months, so that
everyone will have a chance to
subscribe. The amount of news
and the make-up of this paper
depends entirely upon the number
of subscribers we are able to
obtain. The more subscribers, the
better the paper. Subscribe to
your local paper and keep in touch
with the affairs of the town in
which you are living, and also the
mining towns surrounding you.

Community League Meeting
Continued from page 1.
there was some discussion, 'Mr.
Buzelle insisting that a Chinaman
now working in the ; Recreation
Hall be employed. It was decided,
however, by the majority that,
none other than a white man be
employed tor the Reading Room
work.
There was considerable discussion over the matter of paying
umpires and referees for the
season's schedule, but it was
finally deoided upon the strong
recommendation of the Chair that
as everything was going splendidly
in connection with the different
games, that the methods instituted
should remain for the balance of
the season. Mr. Buzelle wanted it
to be done' for nothing, whioh was
very satisfactory last year. Mr.
Barr thought," that the practice
was not in the best interest of
sport, but if it was absolutely necessary to the success of the season's
sport, it should,be continued.
Mr. Buzelle opined that the
Anyox Community League, was an
absolute failure; that nothing was
right with.it, and that as the first
step.it should, change its name to
the Aiiyox Athletic Association;
that a new secretary be appointed,
and that everything be furnished
free, pool, pictures, baseball, tennis,
dances, in fact, everything, the
dues being made compulsory, and
the amount to be $1.50 for Beach
residents and $1 for residents at
the Mine. The suggestions were
laid over for future "reference,
although Mr. Buzelle wanted to
put his proposition up to the management of the Granby Company
immediately.

THE FIRE-BUG AND THE
EAST WIND
"It's time to hit the trail again,"
The careless camper said,
And left his little Are ablaze
Within its leafy bed.
"I'll light another cigarette,"
The idle loafer said,
And chucked his old "snipe" in the
-brush,
Ohe end still glowing red.
"Good time.to start my slashing now,''
The careless rancher said,
And touched it off .without a thought
Of how for it might spread.
"I think I'll blow an hour or two,"
The restless east wind said,
Then liked it so he changed his mind
And blew/a week instead.
"Millions in lives and timber lost," .
The newspapers nest'said.
What mode those fires start all at once
We wondered as we read.
"It was'nt us, it was that wind,"
The fools In chorus said.
So they're alive and loose this year—
.We hope the wind is dead.
