Mining Active
Homestake Concentrates on
Trail Work 1
Worfcat the Homestake Mine,
at present oonsists of trail work, all
I men being taken froni the mine in
order to complete this  work as
1 quickly as possible; J. Fiya has
taken a,' contract to construct
permanent camp buildings and
work will oommenoe at onbe. There
will be two log buildings each 14
feet by 24 feet inside measurement,
One will be used as a bunk house
and the other as a cook house and
dining room. Sixteen men are
employed by the company.
New Tunnel on Sunset
Augurs Well
The new tunnel recently started
on the Sunset property, by the
Keystone Mining Co. is in a distance of eight feet, and shows the
ore vein to be ten feet wide. The
vein will be drifted on for a
distance of 40 or 50 feet and a crosscut will then be driven to both
■ walls. This vein runs north-east
and south-west, aiid oan be traced
on the surface for a distance of four
claim lengths. A new trail is very
much needed'for the transportation
of supplies as the old trail is prao-
tioally worthless; -Only two miles
of trail'is required.
Verona Promising Property
Development work done 6tt£ tho
Verona property, op Roundy o&ek,
this summer, by Mr. TomMoRostie
has proved extremely, satisfaiitory.
A, surface oross-oqt {jjriven aoross
the ore vein, at a depih of thirty
feet, shows from 24 to 30 inches of
highgrade silver*lead. ore. Several
other surface outs have, been
driven on the vein with -gratifying
results. The great drawback to
the property, is the absence', of a
trail from tidewater;, should a
trail be built, considerably more
more worV would be done!, and Hie
prospect of shipping-pre would be
considerably improved.
Vanguard Lead Widens
Theore ledge on the Vanguard'
property, at' the Kitsault Glacier
has widened out to 14 feet, ten feet
of which is high grade copper ore,
estimated by Mr. M, Peterson.^ who
is working ou the property, to;
average six ;orj seven ;per oent
copper. The balanoe of the ledge
catties considerable'iron, but '8
expeoted to contain considerable
silver values. The Vanguard ore
in addition to copper values, carries
good values in gold and silver.   "
Rich Strike on Last Chance
A btrike of high grade silver ore
has been made on the Last Chance
property, by Messrs. A. McPhail
and P. Morley. A surface out
haying a depth of 14 feet was
driven aoross the ore ledge, and
proved the Or* to be 12 feet widej
carrying high values in silver; 'A
second cut has been started, and as

muoh work as possible will be done
before the; snow comes. The
owners at present, are very reticent
regarding! the strike, until more
work has been .done, but according
to all reports, a big strike of high
grade ore has been made, particulars of which will be published
later.      <>■•''-■       '",';.;':".  '.
Numerous Properties  Being
Developed
Numerous other properties are
being developed by their owners
throughout the whole distriot, arid
the work being done this summer
will enhance the value of several of
the older properties and also place
a number of the newer one's in the
limelight. Each season's work
proves more conclusively than ever
that Alice Arm*no's 'the goods"
and will be second to none among
the mining camps of the future.

Weekly Meeting of
"Anyox Community
League Council
After several weeks of no meetings,
the majority of the councillors being
oh holidays or working overtime, the
Counoil met on Wednesday night,
with Mr. Callanan in the chair. ,
On the reading of the minutes of
the preceding "meeting, it was
moved by Mr. Seidelman and seoonded by Mr. Jones that they be
adopted as read.
The Secretary's report dealt with
expenses and receipts covering the
celebrations in connection with
Dominion Day and the trip of the
baseball players to Ketchikan. The
total receipts for the ball game,
field sports and dance amounted to
$468.65, the expense aggregation
$450.90, leaving a balance of $17.75
to the good. The manager of Recreation Hall had been granted an
advance in wages by the Finance
committee, reserving the right to
adjust this at the end of six months
in any manner they might consider
best. In connection with the
request of the Granby Company
for the use of the gymnasium for
a period, of two months, the Secretary asked to have this endorsed by
the Council as a body, as individually they had all agreed to the
arrangement when first brought to
their attention. It had also been
Suggested that Labor Day should
be rjr50ognised.,M „ ,»»jue..^WW^-this.,
year and a field day for those taking an active part in baseball, football and basket-ball should be held
with A dance in Recreation Hqll i'n,

the League would make - these
prizes a yearly donation.'. It was
thought that subject to the will
of each Counoil this might be done,
and Mrs. Dwyer moved and Mr.
Seidelman seconded a motion,., that
the Council continue to donate
these prizes. The letter from Mr.
Harvey asked, about chances for a
musician in.Anyox and the Counoil
agreed that the letter W filed. A
letter from Mr Lee requested the
Council to consider a refund to his
wife of alike sum that was received
by Mr. Waterman list year. Mrs.
Lee had been a member of the
Mine orohestra and was entitled to
a refund. In this connection the
Secretary read,a voluntary letter
from Mr. A. E. Grigsbyt. who had
Organized the orchestra, aud who
Wrote from Jerome, Arizona, after
the Council had paid Mr. Waterman the $20»jn 1922. .TheCouncil
agreed that Mr Lee should be forwarded a copy of this letter for his
information.

Big Dam at Anyox
is Nearing Completion
Under the able guidance of Mr.
W, Faust, the New No. 2. Dam' is
rapidly approaching a state of com
pletion. The activities for the past
two weeks have been centered upon
the last lift, and the coping   and
walk across the top of the Dam
. ■ ..i.i
,from Buttress No.- 1. to Buttress
No. 21. There remains only five
more of these to be placed to hive
this wprk completed.
Other interesting features are the
excavations underway on both sides
of the creek, particularly that on
the east side where the siphon spilt
way is to be placed. This is the
first Siphon Spillway to be constructed in western Canada arid
it adds fifty percent to the efficiency of the structure, it is being
watched with a great deal of interest by other, concerns who are
considering the construction of
danis it is alstf'believed that sever-
al, dams now having the roll-Way
type of spillway, may be altered
and have siphons installed.
The work on the dam was seriously delayed by the ravage of the
recent fire, but ii6w it: is forging
ahead and early coinpletetlon ffyr
looked forward to.
Mr. R. P. Wilmot auditor of the
Liquor Board was a visitor to
Alioe Arm arid Anyox during the
week. This was Mr. WJlmot's first
visit to Alice Arm, and he was
much surprised at the size and activity ofthe town.

All Work and
No Play Makes—
The people that feel sorry for
themselves because they cannot see
their way to take "prolonged vacation" will feel a lot better if they
will let the bars down long enough
now and then to get a little fresh
air. There is something radically
wrong about a man that cannot
see his way clear to take a day or
two off and go fishing if he so
yearns. The lakes and streams
around Anyox abound in fish, and
the few dollars lost in wages will
be more than compensated for by
the injection of new life and vigor,
obtained from a few day's holiday
in the great out-of-doors that surrounds us on all sides. Take «
day off, get out ofthe rut; and forget work, and you will feel like a
new man on your return.
Co-operation
Gets Results
Are we in earnest as to what we
want to make Alice Arm biggei
and better? Results in any enter,
prise are generally proportionate to
earnestness shown by those who
are interested. We seem to bi
pretty well based as to our faith in
Alice Arm, but are we manifesting
the enthusiasm we should to get the
results we desire? Faith and en
thusiasm, directed by intelligence
and good judgement, accomplishes
wonders when concentrated. Now
is the time for Alice Arm to concentrate and co-operate. Our citizens seem to be in accord as never
before along lines to secure the
results desired. It is not possible
for any community to reach 100
per cent in co-operation, but the
nearer we can reach this figure the
better it will be for the future prosperity of all concerned. Faith and
concentrated earnestness is what we
need right now. Discussions and
criticisms must be made openly and
fairly, with the spirit of give and
take in order to get together on
plans to make Alice Arm bigger
and better. To do this we must
learn to have faith and confidence
one with another, in community
affairs. Help hold up the hands
of those who are trying to do things
worth while.
Some people think it real smart
when they ridicule another man's
mining property. A little more
co-operation among the local mining property owners would be of.
benefit to everyone.
Vancouver Hook Roasts 'Em
In a withering article this week, The
Hook goes on record hi denouncing
"Yankee Mail Order Matrimonial
Bureaus". Proofs are adduced where
one Fraser Valley farmer sent money
to get a blooming bride, and was met
at the C. P. R. train by a withered,
rouged hagiwho called him "dearie",
and who insisted upon marriage, It
cost the man half a year's crop says
The Hook, to get rid of her and she
was arrested in a city police raid two
weeks later. The same article states
that loggers and others have been
duped by distant American matrimonial agencies, and sensational disclosures are made by this -paper. One
"Mail order bride", says The Hook,
came all the way from Michigan, and
instead of being blooming and young,
was faded and painted. She explained
that the original photo was taken
some years ago, but "that was his
affair."
Erection of Provincial
Govt. Offices at Anyox
Workmen have been busy during
the past week preparing the site of the
new government offices which are to
be erected near the Beach Recreation
Hall. The contractors are Messrs.
Greer, Beaty and Douglas, It will be
a two storeyed building, the ground
floor being utilized as police head
quarters and the first floor Will contain
the government Agent's office, Police
office and Court House. It is expected
that the building will be ready for
occupation before the winter sets in.
Lumber is Manufactured in
Province Whenever Possible
British Columbia is not following all
open policy on the question of exporting unmanufactured timber. At least
the government is not, states the minister of lands, Hon. T. D. Pattullo, who
points out that in every instance
where it is possible British Columbia
timber is cut and- manufactured at
home. Only a very small percentage
of unmanufactured timber is sent out
of the province. The government's
policy of assisting the industry has
placed lumbering well ahead in this
province.. /
Southern Highway is Paved
The British Columbia section of the
Pacific Highway has been completed
as a paved, road and on Labor Day,
September 3, the event will be celebrated by a grand opening at Cloverdale.
This now means a paved highway from
Vancouver to Seattle. Despite the
criticisms directed against Hon. W.
H. Sutherland, minister of public
Works, for undertaking all the work
this year, now that the job is finished
he is the subject of hearty congratulations. It is conceded by good roads
enthusiasts all over the province that
the paving of tho Pacific Highway will
benefit every section of British Columbia, though the great increased tourists
traffic. Meanwhile, the minister is not
forgetting the newer districts, and an
unusual large amount of work on settlers' roads will be completed before
the season ends.
Omineca District Gets Big
Road Appropriation
An appropriation of $46,000 on public works in the district of Omineca
for settlers roads and bridges is announced this week among a list of
authorizations riiade by Hon, W. R.
Sutherland, minister of Public Works.

Anyox Tennis Club
During the last week Tennis players
have been very busy, some very good
games having been played both in the
Ladder Series and also in the men's
open singles cup games. In the Ladder series special mention must be
made in reference to ^he game between
H. Ballion and O. G. Mclntyre. The calibre of tennis in this game was of a very
high order and was full of exciting
rallies from beginning to end. Mclntyre by better placing and more steady
play, winning. The first round of the
cup games has been, with the exception of two games, played off, and up
to the present no startling results have
taken,. place, the winners coming!
through us expected.
In the Ladies Ladder series practically no games have been -played for
some time, owing to so many of the
oontestents being away. The season
is now getting near to it's close and I
as many Ladder games as possible)
should be played, in order that everybody rimy have a good chance as
possible of winning the prizes. To become eligible for participation in these
prizes, not less than ten games should
be played in the Men's singles, and five
games in all other events.
He who grins in clowns disguise,
Often hides an aching heart-
Sadness sometimes worldly-wise,
Dresses for a motley part;
Cap and bells to cheat the ears,   .
Chalk and paint to hide the tears;
Lest the world divining pain,
Turn to gape and stare again.
Every man is a free agent, and
he can, if he exerts his WILL shape
his own life and be -the master of
his fate, if he refuses to take advantage of. this privilege, he , will
become the'slave of the combined
thoughts of others, and they will
shape his destiny for good or evil.

Hard Fought Football
Game Won Smelter
The Elks having to discontinue run
ning their team owing to several of
their best ph.yers not being available for Lhe rest of tho season. The
Football League have arranged that
the Smelter and Mine shall play a
series of three games to round out the
second half.
The first game took place on the
evening of August 9th. It was a hard
fought battle for supremacy; the Mine
were handicapped by the absence of
several of their regular players but
nevertheless made the smeltermen
play all out. The only goal of the
game was scored in the first half by
Westwood on a well placed pass from
Ed. Boss. Score halftime, Smelter 1,
Mine 0.
On resuming it was a ding dong
Struggle, both teams being evenly balanced. During the last ten minutes
the Mine tried hard to equalize, but
the Smelter defence proved too good
and the game ended in a victory for
the Gas Eaters. Score 1—0.
For the Smelter J. Mair, Ed. Boss, and
Westwood, played star games, whilst
special mention shonld be made of the
ploy of Ourrie, Twaddle and McKeown
for the Mine. V

The secret of
good beer lies
in purity—
That's why Cascade Beer has for 35 years
been British Columbia's favorite health
beverage. No expense has been spared to
ensure purity. It has cost a million dollars to build a plant to accomplish this.
But after testing Cascade Beer, you agree
that it has been worth it.
