Frank E. Woodside Pays
Visit to Alice Arm
Advocates Forming   Branch
Chamber of Mines
of
Frank E. Woodside, president of
the B. 0. Chamber of Mines, spent
a few hours at Alice Arm on Monday while the Cardena was iu
port. He was on his way from
Vancouver to Stewart, and spent
a week at the latter town.
A delegation appointed by the
citizens of the town met him on.
arrival. They tried to induce him
to spend at least a day in Alice
Arm, but as his plans were already
made this was impossible. He
was taken by auto through the
town as far as the Kitsault.bridge,
and ore samples from various properties were examined at Bruggy's
Store. He was greatly surprised
at the size of the town, and noted
with interest the several new buildings in course' of construction.
During his remarks he stated
that if Alice Arm wished to reap
benefit from her rich ore deposits it
was necessary that the mining activities going on should be known
outside, and stated that the best
channel for distributing mining
news was through the B. C.
Chamber of Mines, whose headquarters are in Vancouver.
The Chamber of Mines were organizing branches throughout the
province, and one of his objeots in
visiting Stewart was to organize a
branch there.
He stressed the importance of
sending an ore display for the
Vancouver Exhibition, which
would later be displayed permanently in the Chamber of Mines.
This display should reach Vancouver by August 1st.
Mr. Woodside also displayed a
form to be used by those who wish
to list their properties with the
Chamber of Mines. These forms
will be kept on file for the use of
mining engineers and others who
wish to obtain information of any
certain district.
He stated that numerous enquiries had been made this year in
regard to Alice Arm, but the
Chamber of Mines had up to the
present been unable to supply the
information requested, as none was
forthcoming. With the organiz-
i ing of a branch in Alice Arm this
j state of affairs would be changed.
Mr. Woodside met many old
j friends here of bygone days, among
■ whom was Arohie McPhail, with
\ whom he prospected in the interior

Anyox Baseball
and Football
The Miners nosed out the Beach
football eleven on Monday evening
by the score of one goal to nil.
The game was a ding d'ong battle
throughout, and was without
a doubt one-of the best contests of
the season. High class work in
goal on tho part of Bob Stewart
had a lot to do with his team's
victory. Hunter scored the lone
tally.
Smelter Slip Over a Win
on Elks
The Smelter aggregation of ball
tossers slipped over a win on Tuesday evening at the expense of the
League leading Elks. The game
was in the nature of a pitcher's
battle between Ross and Ferguson
and had all the earmarks of an
extra inning struggle, as the score
was tie right up to the last frame,
both teams having one run. A
couple of miscues, in the seventh,
however, spelled defeat for the
Antlered Herd, the final score
standing 2 to 1.
The Gas Eaters have a much
strengthened line-up now that they
have McDougall and Cole back in
the game again. All that is need-
now is Bruce back in the game
again and they will be a tough
bunch to beat. -

Anglican Church Picnic
Great Success
I In order to ascertain the summer schedule of the launch Awake
iiperating between Anyox and
jUioe Arm, readers are requested
I o refer to advertisement.
Friday, July 10th. was a red
letter day iu the history of Christ
Church parish. Though the
weather clerk could have been a
little more considerate, ye£ his
attitude in no wise diminished the
enjoyment and enthusiasm of both
parents and children.
Those comfortable boats, the
Azurite aiid Cuprite conveyed the
happy throng to the Saw Mill.
A splendid assortment of good
things, all home cooked, were provided and ample justioe were done
them by the party. Ice cream also
was in great demand,
Sincere thanks are due the
Granby Co. for the use of the boats,
to Mr. L. F. Champion for the generous provision of fruit, etc. and
also to the Christ Church Ladies'
Aid for the happy and successful
management of the picnic. One
and all declared it had been a perfect day.
The sports passed off very successfully. The winners were as
follows: Boys: Roy Dwyer, Ronald Gray, Theo. Scott, Elmo Geddes, Sidney Armstrong, Arthur
Dwyer, Erie Gray.
Girls: Connie Butcher, Queenie
Harris, Kathleen Eve, Violet
Scott, Hazel Dwyer, Hattie
Young, Margaret Wilson, Thora
Henderson, Betty Ingram, Marion Henderson. Betty Armstrong.
Last Wednesday evening Old
Man Weather finally consented to
wear a smile and gave manager
Larson of the Pen Pushers' Union
and Lace of the Counter Hoppers'
Club a chance to colleot their Hock
at the ball park to snake the elusive pill, but the office crew romped home with the bacon at the
long end of a 19 to 14 tally. It's
safe to say that the goodly crowd
of peanut eaters never enjoyed
such a joyful time since their pay
was out, exemplified by the number of bed-time stories the game
has invented for every corner and
railing in town to put over to the
unfortunates who, on account of
lumbago or other serious excuses
couldn't find it possible to witness the riot.
It was booked as a pitcher's
battle, as both managers, bless
their hearts, decided that inasmuch as no handles were to be permitted on the balls nor baskets for
the fielders, it would not be a
measure of safety to unnerve their
unfortunate teammates, hence
manager Larson took it in his own
hands to serve to Staines, while
Lace picked Cain to deal to
Cleo.
The toss of the coin decided, at
least, that it was the office crew's
home game, so literally right off
the bat the Counter Hoppers proceeded to upset the dope and garnered five runs in the first frame and
with two on Mclntyre's slug
brought in three for the Bookworms. The slaughter was on
and the peanut eaters were kept
busy between making their ; old
original cracks and wondering
where the ball went to.
The Counter Hoppers kept a
few jumps ahead until the end of
the fifth and were in the best of
spirits, even when away from the
Dugout, and the Bookies were beginning to show signs of homesickness with the score looking
like the view from the bottom of
the Smelter steps from where they
sat.
Manager Larson thought it was
time to start something for there
were no signs of rain or darkness,
so Tommy Bagwill was put on
the mound aud retired the efforts
of Hill, Carr and Laoe in short
order and when the office crew
came in the balloon ascended in
spite of the fact that Hill was put
ir. the box to stop the mad women
who collected nine runs before
they ran out of breath. The Store
gardeners kept the ground hot, and
even Carr in the left corner had to
lay aside his ice wagon training.
Ballion at station two did his best
to do away with Mclntyre once
and for all with a bean ball, since
he couldn't reach him. Lace is
still wondering why they wanted
to disturb him with the ball at the
premier sack, and when he had it
—what next? Townshend believes two bases are much too
little, why stop there? Pop Bag-
will popped it on the nose like
duck soup so Tommy has to go
home via the quiet streets. Cleo
played a star game behind the
slab and didn't let them get away
with anything on the bases. The
game was voted a huge sucoess
from every standpoint and it is to
be hoped that the burst of enthusiasm may not be allowed to fade
and that we may have the opportunity to witness a similar display
of wit in the near future.
This is where they stood on the
field.

Townsite Being
Surveyed Alice Arm
The work of surveying the
ground owned by the Alice Ann
Freighting Co. has been carried
out during the week by F. D. Rice,
and new streets and lanes have also been surveyed, connecting up
with the road system of the town-
site of the Alice Arm Mining and
Development Co., which joins the
ground now being surveyed on.the
west side. Tlie east side of tlie
ground being surveyed is bordered
by the Indian Reserve.
Before new streets can be built
it will be necessary to move some
buildings. Other buildings are
faoi/ig the wrong direction, while
others will not be located on any
street, and must necessarily be |
moved into line. All indications
point to a lineup of the buildings in
the business section, aud instead of
a jumble of buildings, they will,
when moving operations are completed, be all facing on good
streets, which will greatly add to
the attractiveness of the town.
Showers For Popular Anyox
Bride Elect
A very pleasant afternoon was
spent at the home'of Mrs. D, R.
Learoyd on Saturday the 11th.,
the occasion being a shower for
Miss Grace Winter, matron of the
Hospital, who is shortly to be
married. Luncheon was served
by the hostess, and at its conclusion Mrs. Learoyd entered tlie
room with a Jap parasol tilled
with parcels, which she precipitated over the future bride.
Games of bridge were indulged
in during the afternoon.
On Tuesday evening a miscellaneous shower was given to Miss
Winter at the Hospital by the
nursing staff, at which 16 ladies
were present. A kite topped by a
kewpie bride was suspended from
the ceiling and from the kite a
basket was hung filled with parcels. Refreshments followed the
shower.
Anyox Shipping Notes
The S.S. Marmion towing scow
Pioneer, arrived on Sunday midnight from Maple Bay with 1400
tons of ore.
The S.S. Anyox arrived from the
south at 3 a.m. on Monday with
500 tons of coal and 2000 cases of
powder and some general freight.
The S.S. Amur left at 3 p.m. on
Wednesday with 1800 tons of
Stewart ore. 220 tons of copper
for Tacoma. She also carried 50

Mr. E. Ness, who returned to
Alice Arm from the south on Monday, stated that the Kitsault River
Mining and Development Co. are
assured of funds to proceed with
the development of the Matilda.
The company's clear cut policy
in regard to financing appealed to
many who do not as a rule invest
in mining. Several men who have
been interested are expected to
visit the property shortly aud view
for themselves the possibilities of
the Matilda.

Alice Arm Dance
The open air dance which was

During the week, active measures have been undertaken to
organize in Alice Arm a Branch
of the B. C. Chamber of Mines.
Frank E. Woodside, president of
this organization, who was in Alice
Arm on Monday, stated that the
Chamber or Mines would do its
utmost to further the interests of
the mining industry at Alice Arm
as soon as a branch of the organization was formed. A large
number of people have already
pledged their support, and all
that now remains is to organize,
and put ourselves on a par with
other mining districts of the province. By organizing a branch of
the Chamber of Mines we have
everything to gain and nothing to
lose.
Big Wind Rouses Anyox
Residents
Nearly all the residents of
Anyox were awakened from their
slumbers at about 3 a.m. on Monday morning by a heavy gale
which struok the town. The wind
was aocompanied by a deluge of
rain, also severe lightening and
heavy thunder. The rain rattled
on the windows similar to a (ire
hose playing on them. The lightening put some parts of the electric
lighting plant out of commission.
It also dislocated the ice making
plant and other parts of the
electrical plant that operates all
night.
No great damage was done,
however, but some window blinds
and curtains suffered. The whole
population were up closing windows and doors, and in their endeavouring to again court sleep
many felt themselves being rocked
to bye-bye by the strong wind.

L. Lamborne returned home ou

spending a three week's vacation
at Lakelse Lake and surrounding
oountry along the C. N. R. in the
neighborhood of Terrace. Fly
fishing was the best they ever had.
They did some wonderful hiking
all through that highly mineralized country on Maroon Mountain.
By the aid of "Kill'' the trained

Dr. Learoyd, the two hunters
managed to shoot one brown bear
weighing about 400 pounds.
Fishery Boat Visits Anyox
At 8 p.m. Monday night, we had
another pleasant surprise by the
Government Fisheries Patrol Boat
'Malaspino" sailing into the harbor and. docked at the Oil Boat
Dock. The men looked very neat
in their uniforms and white caps.
They came to stay for the night,
but it happened that their was no
entertainment on in town so the
boys spent a quiet time.
Alice Arm Oldtimer Returns
to Town
Arthur Smith, one of the old
residents and prospectors of Alice
Arm returned to town on Mond-
day from Vancouver, after an absence of several years. He is interested in the Kitsault River
Mining and Development Co. and
has been, engaged in their behalf in
southern cities for the past few
months. Since arriving here he
has paid a visit to the Matilda,
whioh the company are developing. He was greatly surprised at
large amount of ore uncovered since
last visiting the property, and was
also amazed at the wonderful
growth the town has made during
the past few years.
Annual Meeting Held Alice
Arm School Board
The annual meeting of the Alice
Arm School Board was held at the
School House on Saturday evening.
the 11th., at which there was a
fair attendance.
The financial statement for the
past year was read by G. W.
Bruggy, the seoretary, and a
oredit balance was shown. Mrs.-
Cummings, auditor, read her report for the past year, stating that
all books were correct.
Owing to the resignation of G.
W. Bruggy from the position of
secretary, it was necessary to
make a new appointment and Al.
Falconer was elected to take over
the duties of secretary for the next
three years. Mrs. Cummings was
re-elected auditor for the ensuing
year.
Some men are born great, some
achieve greatness and others become humorists.

has a secret respect for one that's
good.
