Farm Lands for
Alice Arm
Logging operations will commence at Alice Arm, on the big
flats laying between the Kitsault
and Illiance Rivers, and extending
to the foot of MoGraw mountain
just as soon as, there is a market
for the logs. Mr. S. D. Trethewey,
of Trethewey Bros., Abbotsford,
B. C, who operate a big sawmill
there, is in town, and is busy locating lines, etc on the land. He
stated that it was their intention
of logging off the land just as soon
as a market could be found for the
logs. The land will be cleared
when it is being logged, stumps
will be blown and pulled with the
donkey engine that is used for
pulling logs, and the land will be
put in shape for farm lands.
There is over 1,000 acres between
the Kitsault and Illiance Rivers, of
which Trethewey Bros, own about
900. Work would have been started this spring if a market could
have been found for the logs.
The land is perfectly level and
the soil is first-class, as is attested
by the .crops already grown, there,
by Mr. H. H. Carney, and others.
The soil is practically all river silt,
and rotten vegetation, with no
muskeg. The ground and climate
are admirably suited for dairy
farming, truck gardening, pig and
chicken raising, and small fruits of
all kinds, and with the different
mining camps operating, and
Anyox at our door, a ready market will always be found for
whatever is grown.
A bridge will be built over the
Kitsault River, and the farmers
will only have from 1 to 2 miles to
haul their produce to the Government wharf for outside shipment.   .
BASEBALL GOSSIP
The Jasper Baseball team are
making a tour of the .towns along
the Canadian National Railway.
They are the champions of their
distriot, and are a first-class aggregation. They are booked to play
Prince Rupert on July 28th. and
29th., and the Community League
is negotiating in an endeavour to
hare them eome to Anyox, and
play a series of three games, on
August 1st, 2nd and! 3rd.
It is rumoured around baseball
oirolesthat one of the local pitchers
has had an offer to pitch a trial
game for one of the big league
teams back east. The pitcher in
question wears a peaked cap when
in the box. Guess some of the big
managers are beginning to worry
about material for the next world's
series.'
ANYOX TO VOTE ON
LIQUOR STORE
Dame Rumor says that there is
to be a plebiscite taken in Anyox,
some time next week, to find out
the attitude of the citizens regarding the establishing of a Govern,
ment Liquor Store.
It is understood that the management of the Granby Co. is
agreeable, and will abide by the
decision of the citizens.
The Liquor Control Board will
no doubt have a problem, should
the vote taken be favorable to the
establishment of a liquor store, as
there are no available premises,
and although they no doubt could
obtain a lease on some ground to
build on, this proposition would
take considerable time and money
and the Liquor Control Board
might not consider it good business
to erect a costly building in a closed town, controlled by one company,
which can at any time cease operations, and place the Liquor
Control Board in a very embarrassing position.
Would it not be much better to
establish a store at Alice AymA to
supply both Anyox and A^ice Arm.
Alice Arm is the nearest open
town to Anyox, a town' with a
future, and premises are obtainable
for immediate use.
There is a tri-weekly ferry service between the two towns,/and
there should not be any complaint
on account of delivery.
ALICE ARM NOTES
Mr. H. F. Kergin, our local
member, when interviewed in regard to the opening of a liquor
store in-this district, said that he
favored at least one between the
two towns. That the citizens of
Anyox had really the right to say
where it would be, on account of
having a greater population, although Alice Arm being an open
town had something to gain, while
to Anyox it meant nothing outside
of being able to obtain a supply of
liquor conveniently.
He realizes the difficulty of opening a store there on account of
obtaining premises, as the Granby
Co. could not be expeoted to supply
premises when they are short of
room themselves, and there is'nt
anything to gain.
In the opinion of Jennings Bryan, it
is "an unfriendly act" virtually amounting to "hatching conspiracies
against the laws made by a friendly
government for the protection of its
people," for Great Britain to.permit
the sale of liquor in her Bahama
colony, close to the American coast.
Friend Bryan is growing temperate.
Once upon a time, in his view, it was
an unfriendly act and a conspiracy
against the peace and safety of the
united States for Great Britain to
exist at all.
Mr. S. D. Trethewey arrived in
town on Monday, from Vancouver,
to inspect the various properties in
which himself and his brother Mr.
J. Trethewey, are interested.
Mr. Don Cameron left on Thursday, for a few days in Prince
Rupert.
The home of Mr. and Mrs. G.
Bruggy is shining resplendent in a
coat of new paint. Mrs. Bruggy
is reputed to be the artist.
See Al Falconer for Wood or
Coal.
Don Cameron is another of our
citizens who do'nt believe in sparing the paint at the expense of the
boards. His bungalow is now
about the neatest looking building
in town.
Some of the natives around here
will have strawberrieitis or some
other unmentionable sickness if the
season lasts much longer.
Billy Burke invited all the boys
from Auyox who are camping here
to a strawberry and ice cream feed.
Billy's heart is in the right place
when he goes, out of his way to
make the kids happy.
Constable D. S. Cameron, returned oh Monday from the Naas
River. He reports that the fishing,

of St. Joseph's Hospital, Victoria,

THE MAN AROUND
TOWN
Miss Fitzpatrick left for her
home in Vancouver last Thursday.
Dan Patterson, an old timer of
the Granby Co., came back to his
old love on Thursday. He is looking well and is still the same old
Dan.
The roofs of the houses at the
beach are getting their usual coat
of tar, under the able direction of
Sam Downs.
The smelter and Elks had a
tough struggle on the diamond on
Thursday evening. The game ending in a draw, 2-2. Fitzpatrick
pitched for the smelter and Draudson for the Elks. • Salmon and
Clark handled the game in a very
satisfactory manner. It was one
of the closest fought games seen
this season, although the Elks
might have put a little more pep
in the game. The Hand-bell Ringers were a little slow in getting
to work; but "Jimmie the school
teacher" had his pupils rooting in
good style.
Friday night was football night,
and also the play off for the first
half of the season between the
Elks and smelter; the Elks winning the game by a score of 2-0.
Angus Beaton scored one and
Johnson the other goal. The game
was refereed by R. Wilkinson of
the mine. Both teams played good
ball; but the Elks more than outclassed the smelter in the second
half of the game. This makes four
straight wiiis for the Elks team.
The A. C. L. Orchestra gave a
dance at; the mine after the football game. The music was up to
the standard of this very excellent
orchestra.
'Mr. H. S, Muuro came home on
Sunday morning, after paying a
flying trip to Vancouver.
The Elk's building is now in the
hands of the painters.
Last Thursday, at our local
playhouse, one of Griffiths masterpieces was shown, entitled Broken
Blossoms." The acting was of a
finished nature, with Lilian Gish
in the limelight. The orchestra
played music to suit the occasion,
their rendering of "Traumuai"
being unique. We doubt if an
Anyox audience has heard such
music before. It has a charm
which is all its own.
We think if the Safety First
Engineer ever put a stop watch on
the driver of the store truck, it
would be an eye opener to *him.
That habit of allowing children to
ride on the truck is going to bring
him into trouble sooner or later.
The children should be the first
one's to be thought of in our town,

The Agricultural Possibilities
of Alice Arm.
That Alice Arm is going to be
"a town in the near future of no
mean importance, is again emphasised by the fact that logging and
land clearing work will commence
on the big flats of the Illiance and
Kitsault Rivers, as soon as the
market for logs pick up. We
shall then have 1000 acres of the
finest farm lands in British Columbia, which will probably be split
up into five or ten acre plots, and
will provide homes for 100 or 200
families. This- is no pipe-dream;
but something tangible, and will
happen probably, sooner than some
of us expect. The whole thing
has been worked out in detail by
Trethewey Bros., and if their plans
carry out, we shall have one of
the biggest and best tracts of agricultural land in northern British
Columbia, as well as the richest
silver and copper mines. Situated
as we are, at the head of Alice
Arm, 50 or 60 miles from the
coast proper, we do hot have the
heavy rainfall of the coast, and
that berries and small fruits of all
kinds will ripen here is proven by
the fact that wild raspberries, currants, crab apples, etc., grow in
profusion, and a look round the
gardens will show what can be
grown in the way of fruit and vegetables. That a ready market will
be found for all the produce grown
is a foregone conclusion, the big
mining camps and town of Alice
Arm, and also the town of Anyox
will be the natural market, and if
there is anything to be shipped outside water transportation is available, with a wharf situated only
from one to two miles from the
farms, which a motor truck will
cover in about ten minutes. It is
very probable that in a year or two
that where the big spruce now
stand the sun will shine down on a
fertile plain dotted over with farm
houses, and well kept farms, and a
happy contented community.
Great War Veterans Association
Want to Legalize Beer Selling
The Vancouver Branch of the
Great War Veterans' Association
has decided to inaugurate a campaign to enlist the support of the
public for legalizing the selling of
beer in veterans clubs. They are
promised the support of the Grand
Army of United Veterans.        l
NAAS RIVER NOTES
Major Motherwell, chief inspector
of fisheries, accompanied by Inspector J. T. C. Williams, visited the
canneries on the Naas River last
week.
?
Dr.   Gilbert,  of. the   State   of
Washington, U. S. A., the leading
salmon expert on the coast,  visited
the Naas River last week
Sockeye fishing has considerably
improved, and boats are now averaging 25 fish per boat.
The Canneries are still hopeful
of obtaining a good pack.
The ladies of Anvmdale Naas
Harbour canneries, held a picnic
last week at Devils Point.
Mr. W. T. Aclamson, fishery
overseer, will shortly retire on
superannuation, after 27 years in
the service, 22 of which has been

Liberal Convention in
Prince Rupert elects Mr.
F. Stork to Contest this
Riding
At a liberal convention held in
Prince Rupert, on Tuesday, July
12th, Mr. Fred Stork, was chosen
to contest the Skeena Federal riding, in which Anyox & Alice Arm
is included, at the next general
election.
In accepting the nomination,
Mr. Stork said he wished to heartily thank the delegates for the confidence they had shown in selecting
him for the important work of
carrying the Liberal standard on
this important occasion. He recei
ved a similar nomination four years
ago and did the very best he could.
He would continue to do his best
in the coming contest.
Oil is Struck on B. C.
Boundary Line
The Imperial Oil Company is
reported to have struck oil in the
Pouce Coupe country, where they
a,re drilling, and that they have
encountered an outburst of gas
with a mixture of oil. (The company has fenced its plant with
barbed wire and put armed guards
around the place to prevent the
secrets of the discoverers getting
out. The strike is just on the other
side of the British Columbia Bound
ary line, near Rolla, B. C.
Old Indian Relic
Found at Alice Arm
An interesting old -Indian relic
in the shape of a stone hammer
was found by Mr. Walter MacDon-
ald this week, while working on
the wharf road. It is made of very
light rock, and the handle is broken
off. That it has been extensively
used is evidenced by its smoothness,
and it looks as though it was used
for pounding something up, probably the squaws using it in their
household duties, or maybe it was
used for cracking the heads of
prisoners taken in war. It is on
exhibition at Mr, G. Bruggy's
store.

ANYOX BASEBALL
On Thursday, July 14th, the
smelter and the Elks teams met in
the second game of the new league
, series, in the presence of a large
Crowd of spectators who had the
pleasure of witnessing a pitoher's
battle, which was a credit to both
"• pitohers. The batteries were for
the smelter, Fitzpatrick brothers,
and for the Elks, Draudson and
Down.
The smelter led with 1 run to
■the Elk's 0 until the fifth innings,
when the Elks made two runs.
The smelter came back in the sixth
when Emil Loeske hit to right
field, and brought in the run which
tied the score.
Both teams strained every effort
to get ahead in the seventh innings
but that closed with no score, and
finished a great game a tie. Two
runs each.
On Monday, July 18th, the Elks
and the mine played the second
game of the series, which resulted
in a win for the Elks by 3 runs to
2. Draudson and Down for the
Elks and Ferguson and Thomas for
the mine, were the batteries.
It was a close game, as the scores
show, neither pitchers allowing the
batters to get away with much.
The fielding on both sides was of a
high calibre, and those who witnessed the game had the pleasure
of enjoying a first-class game. J.
Cody for the Elks and J. Ferguson
for the mine, were the leading
wielders of the willow.
ANYOX FOOTBALL
On Friday, July 15th. the Elks
and the smelter played off the deciding game for the leadership of
the first half of the league series.
A large crowd of enthusiasts turned
out and witnessed a great game,
which never lacked enthusiasm.
The Elks, who in the early part of
the .football season did not show up
as good as the other two teainSj
losing practically every time they
stepped on the field for the first
few games, have shown that even
with a bad start, so long as you do
not lose heart, your chances are as
good as the others in the long race.
This they proved on Friday night,
by coming out victorious with a
score of 2 goals to the smelter's nil.
The smelter put up a hard fight,
and they have done so all through
the league; but their forwards just
could not land the pigskin in the
net, and that is what counts in
spite of the good play in the field.
TRAIL SMELTER
BREAKS RECORD
Trail smelter broke all its records
for tonnage of ore handled, during
the six months just ended, a total
of 208,484 tons of concentrates
being received up to June 30. Of
this total, 3154 tons was custom
ore and concentrates, the Consolidated Mining & Smelting Company's own properties, accounting
for the balance. The receipts for
the corresponding period last year
were 147,389 tons.

ilhe Dance held at the Mine
Hall, on Friday, July 15th, under
the .auspices of the Community
League, proved a success in every
way. The A. C. L. Orchestra- furnished the music and that in itself
is enough to ensure success. A
special feature of the evening which
met with the approval of all
present, was Mr. A, Ferri's cornet
solo, "Mother Machree," accompanied by piano and violin. The
applause almost bringing the house
down.

"It usn't futball," he explained.
'"Tis a revolushun."

suspiciously. ..
"Yez don't pay nothin'. We'll col-
lict subscripshuns in America an'
Germany. All yez have t' do is t'

"Strike who?" inquired Mick.
"Ye'll be told, by thiiu higher up.

The Mineral Province of Western Canada
Has produced minerals valued as follows: Placer Gold, $75,944,203; Lode Gold, $102,753,823; Silver,
$53,668,284; Lead, $46,637,221; Copper, $161,513,864; Zinc, $19,896,466; Coal and Coke, $212,573,492;
Building Stone, Brick, Cement, etc., $32,168,217; Miscellaneous Minerals, $1,037,408; making its mineral
production to the end of 1920 show an
Aggregate Value of $706,192,978
The substantial progress of the Mining Industry of this Province is strikingly exhibited in the following
figures which show the value of production for successive five-year periods: For all years to 1895, inclusive,
$94,547,241 for five years, 1896-1900, $57,605,967; for five years, 1901-1905, $96-509,968; for five years, 1906-
1910; $125,534,474; for five years, 1911-1915, $142,072,603; for the five years, 1916-1920, $189,922,725.
Production During last ten years, $331,995,328
Lode-mining has only been in progress for about 25 years, and not 20 per cent of the Province has been
even prospected; 300,000 square miles of unexplored mineral bearing land are open for prospecting.
The Mining Laws of this Province are more liberal and the fees lower than those of any other Province
in the Dominion, or any Colony in the British Empire.
Mineral locations are granted to discoverers for nominal fees.
Absolute Titles are obtained by developing such properties, the seourity of which is guaranteed by
Crown Grants.

NOTICE TO ADVERTISERS

The Herald is Circulated in the Towns of Anyox and
Alice Arm, which has a combined population of over
2,500, and an annual payroll of over $2,000,000
where we have not the ordinary
facilities which other places enjoy,
owing to the peculiar conditions
which exist here. The company
are preaching safety first at all
times, but it is up to us as individuals to co-operate with them in
order to get RESULTS.
Bert Wing paid us a flying business trip from Swamp Point, on
Saturday, but went back again
Monday morning.   -~
On Sunday evening, at the Ball
Park, Bert Knox's wood butchers
again defeated the mine machine
drillers, muckers, etc. By winning
both games the players are/ now
entitled to sign up with Dooley
Dean's outfit and then qualify into
the major class. Anyway, it was
a great game with lots of enthusiasm on both sides, and some remarkable running. We would
have liked to have seen "Hard
Winter" bag a home run, but somehow things did'nt go just as
smoothly this time.
The Mechanics pitched McKay
instead of Logan. We heard the
reason was that the wood butchers
were afraid of Logan's bob balls.
Cheer up Bill, for Jack Cody has
his eye on you. The score was
12-10 or there-a-bouts. A few
runs,either way did not seem to
matter at all.
The mine and Elk's were at it
tooth and nail, on Monday evening
in about the best game we have
witnessed this year. The game
was clean, full of pep, and both
pitchers had good support. Pete
pitched for the Elk's and Jimmie
for the mine. Jimmie was at his
best Monday evening, and pitched
a rattling good game. The umpiring was in the hands of Waterman
and Clark and seemed to please
the crowd. Both sides had hearty
support from the spectators.
Chapman seemed to be enjoying
himself amongst a bunch' from the
mine and smelter, and those handbell ringers that he takes so much
pride in brought his team home to
victory. Whilst we had Eddie
Swanson at the commencement of
the game, his efforts were feeble
indeed towards the last, and we
don't think Danny Dean will ever
recover from the shock.
"Skipper" Ross Pedvin chaperoned a party of eligible bachelors to
Trout Lake, on Saturday evening,
for the week-end. They reported
a dandy time and caught over 30
trout.
ANY0XJF00TBALL
The first game of the new series
was played on AVednesday, July
14th, between the Elks and smelter, resulting in a win for the Elks
with a score of 3 goals to nil.
It was an interesting game from
start to finish, and the smeltei'
were rath*' unfortunate in not
lauding one in the net. They played a hard game, but their forwards
did mot seem to be able to settle
down to combination football like
that of tlie Elks, whose forwards
play the game of short snappy
passes, which seems to be the most
successful style on this ground.
In the defence line the Elks are
more steady than the gas-eaters.
The work of Ferre standing out
above all others. Cy. Greenwell
at centre half is a wonder at breaking up attacks, but he does not
take time to place when getting
rid of the ball.
Following are the line-up of the
teams:
Elks; Down, Roberts, Farre,
Nixon, Greenwell, Brown, Beaton,
McMillan, Johnston, Jones and
Armstrong..
Smelter; Hutchings, Hart, Parker, Kirkland, Sherman, Crear, J,
Brown, McKenzie, McDougal, Hic-
klin, and Seaton.
Referee; Mr. Dick Wilkinson.
A word to those players who
would dispute the referee's decision.
It is useless. Mr. Wilkinson is an
old-timer at the game. His name
was well known on -the line-up of
Preston Northend some 30 years
ago, and he has followed, the game
and its rules ever since,
