Points of Interest From
Alice Arm Mines
Work will Shortly Commence
on Matilda
This season's programme of development work on the Matilda
property, by the Kitsault River
Mining & Development Oo. will
probably oommenoe at the end of
this month or early in June, states
Mr. 0. Flint, who returned to Alioe
Arm on Monday from Vancouver.
The first work to be undertaken
this year will be the extension of
the Matilda tunnel, where conditions are extremely favorable for
the encountering of one of the big
ore bodies.
All mining equipment and the
neoessary supplies, with the exception of some perishable goods, are
on the ground, whioh is a great
asset toward an early start.
Mr. Flint will shortly visit the
property, so that a decision can be
made as to the date when operations will oommence.
Mining Ore at Esperanza
Mining still continues at the
Esperanza. Ten tons of ore are
now ready for shipping. Part of
this is sacked and the shipment
will be completed as soon as the
balanceof sacks arrive from smelter.
LaRose Raise Continues
Work on the raise at the LaRose
; is being continued and an additional 25 feet will carry it through to
the bottom of the shaft.    The one
continues to be high grade, aud the
future of the mine appears to be exceedingly bright.    Five men  are
working on the trail, so that building and mining  supplies  oan   be
| hauled from the railway at a nyui-
[ nium expense.
Wildcat Tunnel Extension
The tunnel on the Wildcat property, owned by A. Davidson, is
(being extended an additional 30
Jfeet by Jens Larson, who, on the
completion of the work will obtain
|an interest in the property.

Alice Arm Hotel Opened
Ten Years Ago
Ten years ago today marked the
opening of the Alice Arm Hotel.
On that auspicious occasion over
350 guests were present, large numbers came from Anyox and a speo-
ial trip was made from Prince
Rupert by a number of admirers
of Mr. Ole Evindson, who had
built the hotel. '
Mr. Evindson operatedthe hotel
for a number of years, and later
engaged in farming on a small
scale near Vancouver. The call of
the north, however, was too strong
and he is again back in charge of
the Hotel, and anxious to welcome
all his old friends from Anyox, and
also make new ones.
For those who are not aquainted
with the early history of the oamp,
we wish to say that Mr. Evindson
is one of the original locators of the
Dolly Varden mine. With his
share of the money derived from
this property he built the Alice
Arm Hotel, whioh stands as
a monument of his faith iii the
camp.
Those of Anyox, who desire to
spend a few days or weeks at this
famous hostelry will find a hearty
welcome from Mr. and Mrs. Evindson, who will endeavour to make
their .vtay a ploasant one.

Attractive  Programme
Outlined for Monday
Evening
A coming event has seldom
aroused such keen interest as the
championship wrestling match.
Carded as the head-liner of a big
entertainment to be held, under
the auspices of the Mine Club, in
the Recreation Hall, Monday.
The two grappling for chief
honors will be Stubbs and Doherty
an event, incidently, a Mine vs.
Beach contest, overshadowing all
other 'battles" of a sporting nature
between   the    two   communities.
Dick Stubbs of the Mine is too
well known to need a detailed introduction. Suffice to say .he has
held the Amateur Champion wrestling card for a number of years,
and during his stay in Anyox, has
many times given us an exhibition
of brilliant wrestling, meeting and
easily defeating all local challengers.
Of his challenger for Monday's
event less is known, but anticipating an intense struggle for victory,
is the faot that Doherty of the
beach, so far has never been beaten.
He is the champion of Saskatchewan, and during his career has
defeated the champion of the eastern Inter-Collegiate series.
General Superintendent W. R.
Lindsay, a wrestler.of many years'
experience, will referee.
Of the other events, a big reception is sure to be accorded Pigskin
and Glory Hole, Jimmy and Jack
(Arscott and Barnes) and Bill
Reynolds' Juveniles—showing the
result of careful training in the
Mine Club Gymnasium during the
past winter. Then, more especially
to appeal to the ladies, will be
songs, variety sketches, and musical items, the whole rounded off by
the presence of the Melodians' orohestra, who will be iu attendance ■
throughout the evening. The
programme in detail will be found
elsewhere on this page.
Change Steamship Schedule
Next week and the following
week, May 12th. and 19th. the C.
N. R. Steamship Prince George
will arrive iu Anyox around midnight on Wednesday, and leave for
the south via. Stewart, Prince
Rupert and other points, as soon
after arrival as possible. She will
arrive in Vancouver the following
Saturday at 2 p.m. This schedule
is effective for two sailings only.
Kitsault River Enroaching
The Kitsault river continues to
eat out the west bank and is gradually approaching the town. Since
the high water last fall the river
has enroached over forty feet in
places. Some work is now being
done in straightening up the channel, and it is probable that the
bank of the river will be strengthened during the summer in order
to protect the lower part of the
town. ALICE   ARM   AND   ANYOX   HERALD,   Saturday,   May  8,   1926

Very shortly, the athletes of
Anyox will be able to exhibit
their skill on the baseball diamond,
football held, tennis courts and
rifle range, while others who are
overhauling their trim crafts on the
waterfront will soon commence to
roam and explore their favorite fishing grounds, which abound around
Anyox. The people of Anyox
cannot enjoy the amenities of green
fields, cultivated gardens, or auto
rides along country roads, but
they can get out and revel in the
sunshine and indulge in any sport
that they desire. Thanks to the
Anyox Community League—under
whose sheltering wing Anyox sport
is fostered—baseball, football and
tennis will be again available for
all. If you don't take an active
part in these sports, attend the
games and become an enthusiast.
The exercise and fresh air will do
you good and relieve your mind
from the pressure of trivial cares.
The past winter sports' season,
was one of the most successful
ever experienced in Anyox. and
the money expended by the Community League in building the
Beach Gymnasium and Mine
Hall, has been amply repaid, not
perhaps, from a monetary standpoint, but the pleasure derived by
the community has amply compensated the expenditure. If the coming summer sport season is as successful as the past winter, then
1926 will rank as one of the banner years of Anyox sports.

April, 1926
Dear little Lad with the questioning
eyes,
They say that you've gone away,
To the mystery land beyond the skies,
Where there is everlasting day.
How we miss your shout, and your
cheery smile,
Your loving and gallant ways;
Give us faith to know  t'is but for
awhile,
Till the night gives way to day.
Dear Laddie if only you might return,
To tell of that wondrous land,
No longer would parents or loved ones
mourn
For touch of the vanished hand.
For we can see you stand on God's
' green fields
Your face lit with great amaze,
As   each   heavenly   wonder   makes
appeal
To your eye's enquiring gaze.
Each gorgeous flower of most wondrous hue
Such colors we never see,
And we hear yon shout as each splendor new,
Pills your soul with ecstasy.
Delighted you list to the glorious song
Of God's own nightingales;
How joyous your mood as you wander
on
Up and down heaven's hills and
dales.
Nor do you forget your loved ones
below,
But you know that the day will
come,
When we too shall reach the turn in
the road,
And shall see the 'Rising Sun'.
And you'll greet us crossing the great
divide,
As we enter the heavenly land,
And when we hear your shout and see
your smile,
Then we too shall understand.

Prospect on the Granite
Contact Says Professor
Schofield
Throughout British Columbia
there is the same general ore accur-
ency as created the immense deposits of mineral at Butte, Mont.,
richest hill in the world, and there
is no reason why a similiar field
should uot be uncovered by prospectors in British Columbia, Professor S. J. Schofiield of the University of B. C. declared at a recent
public meeting under the auspices
of the B. C. Chamber of Mines.
In simple terms, his advice to
prospectors was: "Prospect on the
edges of granite outoroppings and
look for ore on the contacts of the
granite with their igneous formations."
The professor declared  that he
expected to see continuous great
development in mining throughout
the province and noted  better appreciation among business men of
the  posibilities of mining as   an
investment Held and  of its great
value to the province in providing
|employmentand general prosperity.
It is not unlikely,  he intimated,
Ithat the copper market  would  be
[controlled, by the larger producers
■to maintain the price at about 15
fcents  per pound, a level    which
livould maintain most British  Colombia copper mines in steady pro-
Ijuction.
While minerals on Mountain tops
Lnd slopes are being worked today
future operations will be in the
[alleys, he declared, since electrical
[respecting equipment helps to
Ivercome the handicap of overburden on the land in the locating of ore bodies.

Premier March Output
Exceeds all Records
Producing an average of 400
tons per day, the famous Premier
mine in the Portland Canal distriot
during the month of March exceeded all previous output records by
mining 19,000 tons of ore, according to Dale L. Pitt, manager of the
mine.
Of the total production for the
month, 12,000 tons was sent out
over the tramline for smelter treatment and 700 tons went through
the concentrator which recently
had its capacity doubled. During
the month the tramline was in
operation 96 per oent of the time
both day and night. With the
new concentrating unit now in full
operation, the March output will
probably be exceeded in Apuil,
states Mr. Pitt.
Mr. Pitt states that while operations continue on a steady basis at
Premier, the company is branching
out into the district. Recently it
acquired the Cantu and Frances
groups of claims on the Alaska side
of Salmon river.
Asked regarding the Indian
mine, in connection with which
there had been a good deal of
rumor lately Mr. Pitt said that
such rumor was not unfounded and
that there might be an interesting
announcement to make in the near
future. Mr. Pitt was a passenger
on the Cardena.
Boundary Mine Situated in
Two Countries
Boundary Red Mountain mine,
whose upper tunnels in the United
States produced $90,000 in gold
last year, is now driving its lower
tunnel under the Canadian border.
It is situated back of Sarins, B, C.
The ore body appears to rake into
Canadian territory, and if the body
is found at depth the mine will be
producing from both nations at
once. The Wingfield interests controls it.
