Wedding Present, Cards
and Dancing, Mark
Enjoyable Party
"It's always fair weather when
good fellows get together," was
borne out on Tuesday evening w hen
over thirty friends of Mr. and Mrs.
J. A. Anderson, who were recently
married in Vancouver, gave a party
in their honor at the Alice Arm
Hotel, and presented them with
two handsome upholstered chairs,
The evening's entertainment was
varied. Cards were played, a
supper partaken of followed by
dancing until the small hours.
Bridge games commenced at 8.30
and terminated at 11 o'clock. The
winners were, ladies' tirst prize,
Mrs. G. Anderson; men's first
prize, Mr. Neil Forbes; consolation
prize, Mr. W. Stevens.
Following cards, a guessingcom-
petition was held, and Miss Alma
Evindson was awarded first prize,
a creditable performance for one so
Ten Feet of Copper Ore Crosscut on
Red Point by Development Tunnel
The development tunnel being
driven on the Red Point property
has crosscut through 10 feet of
good copper ore, and latest reports
are that the tunnel is still being
driven in ore, although it is not of
suoh a high grade as the 10 feet.
This is the best mining news published for a long time and the early
encountering of ore awakens an
increased interest in the development of the Upper Kitsault copper
This striking of  ore was unex
pected. It is known as a blind
lead, not showing on the surface.
The strike was made a distance of
200 feet from the portal of the tunnel, and the depth from the surface
is approximately 300 feet.
It has been classed as a stringer
from the main body, which is expeoted to be encountered at about
100 additional feet. The topography of the ground is steep and
great depth will be attained as the
tunnel progresses.
Samples of  ore brought down
during the week, shows it to be a
chalcopyrite ore, heavily mineralized, and in addition to copper
values will also probably carry good
gold values, as does nearly all copper ore in the Kitsault valley.
The encountering of ore is a
source of great satisfaction aud
again proves, as was previously
done on the Toric, and La Rose,
that the only thing necessary for
Alice Arm to become a big producer is capital wisely spent is driving
tunnels on the most promising
Supper was then   announced in
the dining room.   The spread was
elaborately  furnished.     A    long
table was placed diagonally across
the room, and the exquisite decorations were the cause of much favorable comment. Bouquets of daffodils and tulips, lent an air of spring
time, and added to them  were ar-
tistioally colored paper decorations,
and at each   diner's plate   was   a
small doll, while  in   front of the
guests of honor chair, Mr, and Mrs.
Anderson, was a miniature bridal
couple.   The eatables were appetising and varied, and   the   tables
groaned beneath an abundance of
epicurean   dishes  to   tempt    the
appetite.    The dining room was
attractively decorated with paper
streamers   suspended    from    the
centre of the ceiling.
At the commencement of the re-
past,Mr. J.Trinder, chairman ofthe
evening, gave a short address. A
toast was proposed to the guests of
the evening by Mr. O. Evindson,
I and in proposing the toast he made
a few humorous remarks regarding
the recipients. The toast was
drank with great enthusiasm.
At the conclusion, Mr. Al. Falconer said that a pleasing ceremony
had been wished on him, aud that
was the presentation of two upholstered chairs, to the evening's
guests, and on behalf of those
present he was pleased to perform
this ceremony.
Mr. J. Anderson replied, in a
short address, thanking everyone
for their kindness, and hoped he
would live long enough in Alice
Arm to wear them out.
Mr. Neil Forbes was oalled upon
to say a few words. After dinner
speeches is one of Neil's many accomplishments, and he obliged by
a few witty brief remarks.
Following the supper the orchestra broke into a lively fox trot and
immediately everyone was dancing,
which was continued until away
into the following morning. The

First Dance of 1.0. D.E.
Very Successful
The ladies of the Imperial
Daughters of the Empire of Kincolith Chapter made their initial
bow to the public in putting on
their first dance on Friday April
1st. in the Beach Gymnasium. The
hall was beautifully decorated for
the occasion in the colors of the
order, which are red white and
blue. The floor was ideal for
dancing for which credit is due Mr.
E. Ashton. The refreshments
were all that could be desired, and
the musio which was supplied by
the Mine Melodians met with everybody's approval.
A very pleasing incident took
place during the proceedings ofthe
evening, a short intermission was
declared during which the president, Dr. D. R. Learoyd, on behalf
of the Anyox Canadian Legion
presented a standard to the Chapter.' This standard was duly
received by Mrs. Murdooh, the
Standard Bearer elect, aud acknowledged in very fitting terms by
the Regent, Mrs. Laing. This part
of the programme was appropriately concluded by the singing of the
National Anthem.
The dancing was enjoyed until
the wee small hours of the morning
when everybody returned to their
homes with contentment of having
spent a very pleasant evening,
which proved more than ample
repayment to those who were
responsible for putting on this
dance. The Regent and officers of
the Chapter wish to thank all the
members, the Ex-Service men and
many others who helped to make
this dance one of the most successful events of the year.

Anyox P. T. A. Raise $100
Home Economics Chair
As a result of the looal campaign
the Anyox Parent Teacher Association forwarded the sum of $100.00
to the Home Economics Fund to
assist in providing a chair in the
Department at the University of
British Columbia. Those who
worked so faithfully deserve a
great deal of credit and the thanks
of the community and association
are due to the President, Mrs. R.
O. Cutler, who was in oharge; also
Mrs. H. Patrick, Mrs. B. Scott,

Educational Talk Given
by H. C. Fraser, School
At a special meeting of the
Parent Teacher Association held in
the Public School, Monday April
4th. the speaker for the occasion
was Mr. H. C. Fraser, inspector of
schools for the district.
Splendid musical numbers were
offered by Mr. J. E. Kania, violinist and Mr. J. L. Anderson whose
vocal selections were well received.
Mrs. J. Pynn played the piano
accompaniments for both artistes.
In his very entertaining address,
Mr. Frazer covered a diversity of
topics with ready grace. Dealing
with the curriculum of the Public
School the speaker pointed out the
progressive steps from Grade I to
Grade VIII in various subjects,
but stressed the steps in number
work, Much to his hearer's delight
old time methods were compared
with modern systems aud schemes
of pedagogy.
The effectiveness of examinations
and tests were commented upon.
Not only was the child's knowledge
measured, but the teacher could
estimate the reception of the subject by his pupils.
Standardized tests for Canadian
schools were anticpated soon. The
use of the "Normal Curve" as a
measuring rod for awarding letter
values was explained and thespeak-
er showed that it could be applied
to many conditions.
Following the programme a very
hearty vote of thanks was tendered
to Mr. Fraser. Mr. Kania and
Mr. Anderson for providing an entertainment which had proved one
of the best during the year. Nearly
fifty members and visitors were
present, Routine business was
conducted at tlie opening with Mrs.
R. Cutler presiding and Mr. J. R.
Mitchell acting secretary, Mrs. J.
Cloke and Mrs. W. Barclay were
responsible for providing excellent
refreshments at a social half hour
spent at the close of the meeting.
Dance Tax Aimed at City
Dance Halls
It is understood that the recent
law passed by the Provincial Legislature in regard to taxing proceeds from dances, was aimed at
the Dance Halls of Vancouver and
other cities, where halls are open
continuously, and in direct compe
tition with moving picture shows.
These places of amusement have
never paid an amusement tax,
although moving pictures were
paying taxes. The tax on proceeds
from picture shows has been reduced by $75,000. Where the proceeds of any dance are donated to
a worthy cause, the tax will not be

If the Ladysmith Smelter is
again put in operation, and business
conducted as published by the
southern press, it will unquestionably
be a great boon to the mining
operators of silver-lead and zinc
ores on the coast. Alice Arm
possesses a vast potential tonnage
of these ores, and the most serious
handicap to their development has
been the high cost of transportation
to a smelter treating this class of
ore. A large amount of the
deposits of silver-lead and sine ores
in this district lie near tide-water
and the cost of transporting them
to a smelter, also on tide-water can
be done at a small cost. The
operation of the Ladysmith should
result in increased activity of our
mining properties, for nowhere in
the world can ores be shipped as
cheaply as can the water-borne
ores from Alice Arm and the
north coast. The Ladysmith
smelter has had a checkered career
but now that the whole coast district is being developed on a much
larger scale than heretofore, no
anxiety should be felt as to shortage of tonnage.
Although the fresh fall of snow
during the week will impede Alice
Arm gardening operations, it will
not be very long before the ground
will be fit for the planting of seeds,
and the caring of the hardy perennials. There is not anything that
gives a better appearance to a
town than a profusion of flowers
in a well kept garden. Alice Arm
will receive a large influx of Anyox
visitors during the summer months
and a number of them will repeat
their visit if the town appeals to
them. Flowers are one of the
most appealing agents we can use.
Their planting will change a piece
of ground from an eye-sore to a
thing of beauty at a cost of a few
cents. Plant lots of flowers, both
for the benefit you will derive from
them yourself and also the admirers
of nature who pass by.
As the sun gets brighter each
day, so does the future of Alice
Arm. Each week some news
item is published in the Herald
that verifies this statement. In
recent issues we have published
Plans Made for Opening
of Ladysmith Smelter
Authentic information has been
received from London that the
Ladysmith smelter has been fully
financed there and is to be reopened,
says E. A. Haggen, writing in the
Vancouver Daily Province.
Mr. Herbert Carmichael, general
manager of the company, has returned to Canada, and will immediately take steps to rehabilitate the
smelter, and equip it up-to-date for
the treatment of silver-lead-zinc
It is probable a custom mill will
be operating in conjunction therewith to handle shipments of low
grade complex ores.
Ladysmith smelter was formerly
operated by the Tyee Copper Company for the smelting of the ores of
the Tyee mine, on Vancouver Island.
That company's operations were a
great success, financially, until the
mine became exhausted. The
smelter was then continued for some
years as a copper custom plant, but
as such failed to pay. It drew ores
from British Columbia coast, Alaska
and South America.
Carmichael, who was for many
years provincial assayer for the
Government of British Columbia,
recognizing the development of the
mineral industry, and the advance
in metallurgy, conceived the idea of
adapting it to treatment of silver
lead and silver-zinc ores. He se-
cured it, and with the assistance of
H. B, Thompson, formerly of Victoria, and food controller of Canada
during the war, succeeded in financing it in London.
Mr. Carmichael is accompanied
on his return to Canada by Mr.
Coulls, representing the British
investors in the enterprise.
In connection with the Ladysmith Smelting Company an exploration company is being organized in
London to take up and develop
mineral properties as a source of
supply of ore for the smelter. This
company will also be prepared to
assist prospectors and owners of
promising properties to develop
their mines to the point of production, in consideration of receiving
the ores.
that the Victor Spencer interests
have decided to carry out their
elaborate programme; that an option has been taken on the LaRose;
of the development of several properties; while this week we publish
an account of the encountering of
ore at the Red Point. Alice Arm
is steadily moving ahead. Steadily,
but none the less, we are progreS'

development of our mineral riches
has been our plea. This has now
commenced to flow this way, and
it is reasonable to expect, in view
of past results attained, that this
flow will ultimately reach flood

R. K. Neill Being Sued
by Partner
Echos of the early days of the
celebrated Premier Mine, one of the
greatest gold producers in the history of mining in British Columbia
was heard at the courthouse in Vancouver when R. W. Wood, formerly
of Fernie, one of the four men who
brought the property into production
after many others had failed, issued
a writ against R. K. Neill, Spokane
mining engineer, one of his partners.
Mr. Wood alleges that under
agreement with his partners he paid
Pat Daly, who formerly had a stake
in the property, the sum of $15,000
in 1921, and that he also paid E.
Hambleton $1,500 for his services
in settling the Daly claim. It was
agreed, he claims, that each of the
partners including Neill, should pay
one fourth of this sum.
The action which Mr. Wood,
through his solicitor, R. L. Mait-
land, began against Mr. Neill, is to
recover one-fourth of these two sums
with interest since 1921, the total to
date amounting to $5,267.
George A. Clothier is
Transferred Nanaimo
Geo. A. Clothier, mining engineer for the Northwestern district,
which includes Alice Arm, Stewart,
Atlin, Terrace and distant points
down the coast has been appointed
to the Nanaimo district by Hon.
William Sloan, Minister of Mines.
He is succeeding W. A. Brewer,
who is one of the outstanding figures in provincial mining circles.
Application will probably be called
for the post vacated by Mr. Clothier.
Geo. Clothier, who is a well known
figure in every mining camp in the
north is a pioneer of the district,
and was a resident of Stewart when
that camp was placed on the map
during the boom of 1908-12.

Much Gold Still in Fraser
Since gold was recovered from
the bars in the Fraser river sixty or
seventy years ago, many attempts,
successful and otherwise, have
been made to recover additional gold from this waterway. The
Fraser River according to Dr. G.
M. Dawson, one of Canada's greatest geologists, has flowed in its
present channel for millions of years.
Mountains have slid into it and been
washed downstream, erosions have
taken place, and all through time
gold has been deposited into the
bottom of the river. Boulders have
prevented dredging, but these same
boulders act as natural riffles, and
it is natural to imagine that among
the boulders is much platinum and

held a leading position among the
tin fields of the world, ranking
until almost the middle of the last
century as the world's greatest producer of this metal, says a correspondent of The Economist, of London. What is not now so fully

his eyes about the room."
