A FEW OF ALICE ARM'S BIG STICKS
The above illustration gives an idea of the Size of some of the timber now
being logged at Alice Arm. The logs are Sitka Spruce, and are from the
camp of Eric Carlson, contractor for the camp of the Abbotsford Logging
Co., Ltd They all came from one tree, and scaled 18,014 feet. The top
log is nine feet-in diameter. Those in the picture, are: C. P. Riel, holding
measuring rod; Eric Carlson, at right, and Art Evans on top log.
Season Champions  Of
Anyox Baseball
Coleman Hall, short-stop of the
league leading Elk's aggregation
of ball tossers topped the batters
for phe season of 1924 with a mark
of 359, inc'idently winning Doctor
Keeley's prize of twenty dollars.
Bud Sheen was next to Hall with
an average of 326 and Earl Anderson of the Mine team third with
28H.
Archie Campbell was the only
player to finish the season without
an error chalked against him in
field.   ,
The Elks lead the way in team
batting, with an average of 228.
The Mine came next with 188 and
the Smelter 174. Taking it all
around, the hitting this year was
either exceptionally poor, or the
pitching was exceptionally good.
In our opinion it was the latter.
"Red" Fitiipatrick was the leading pitcher with an average of 667.
The Smelter administered
another defeat to the Mine Football Club on Friday evening, four
goals to two. The Smelter had
the best of the going all the Way,
and certainly deserve their win.
The Miners seem to feel the absence
of Currie from their line-up, as
they have slipped considerably
since his departure.
Harrowing Experience
of Anyox Hunter
One day, not long ago, one of our
Anyox subscribers took part in a
hunting trip up in the Bear Creek
district. During the day a rainstorm
came on, as it sometimes does at this
time of the year. In order to keep
dry he crawled into a hollow log.
When the rain began to fall the log
began to swell, until he could get
neither way, and he thought his end
had surely come.
He thought of all the wrongs he had
done, and when he remembered that
he had not yet paid his over-due subscription to the Herald, he felt so
small that he crawled right out of the
log without difficulty.
New Bridges Across
The Kitsault River
The iwork of repairing the
Dolly Varden railway track to
Camp 8 was completed during the
week. ' Mr. J. Fiva who has been
in charge of tlie work oame to
town on Wednesday. In addition
to the repairing of the track a
cable and cage was constructed
across the Kitsault river at a point
about half a mile below „West
Creek.
Mr. J. Wells also has constructed a bridge aoross the river at 14-
mile, near the Homeguard property
replacing the cable and cage, that
has been iu use for a number of
years. The bridge has a span of
fifty-three feet, and is five feet
wide, and can be used by pack
trains.
A bridge will now be built
across the Kitsault opposite the
Wolf property.
Large Log Shipnents By
Granby Co. From
Alice Arm
During the past two weeks the
Granby Co. have been logging in
earnest. Their whole equipment
is now operating at the No. 2
camp on the Kitsault Flats, and
they are putting into the water, an
average of about 130,000 feet b.m.
per day. The biggest day, so far
this year, was 149,000 feet. Up to
date the Granby Co. have sent 28
booms to their sawmill at Larcom
Island this year, comprising 5,-
197,886 feet b.m.
Railway construction is still
going forward and the railway
this year will be built up to the
North-east Fork of the Kitsault
river. This will give well over
two miles of track. The big yarder that has been operating near
the waterfront is now being moved
back into the woods to a new
spar tree.
Bears Plentiful As Flies
Around Alice Arm
Other districts in this neighbourhood may have their Bear rivers
and Bear •creeks*' but for real live
bears, from wee tots to good old
hoary grandads, Alice Arm is
hard to beat. Reports from the
logging camps on the big flats
state that the woods are full of
them, and they are not a bit bashful, either. In fact some of them
are a little too friendly for the
loggers, who sometimes love a
scrap, but strictly draw the color
line on Mr. Bear.
Dance For Carnival
Queen Candidate
A highly successful dance was
held at the Gymnasium, on Wednesday evening, when a large
crowd assembled to do homage and
pledge their support to the local
candidate for Queen of the Carnival
of the Prince Rupert Fair. The
music supplied by a twelve-piece
orohestra, was all that could be
desired. The many couples in
attendance danced until 2 a.m.
and took their departure with
regret, but thoroughly satisfied
with having spent a very enjoyable
evening.
Big Game^Alice Arm
Anyone who is skeptical about
laek of game in this neigbourhood
should take a trip up Roundy
Creek. Mr. Ingraham while
working on the Theda Bara during
the week, saw two goats, two
cariboo, and a bear.   '
Tennis  Players  Leave  For
Stewart
The launch "Awake" left this
morning for Stewart, with the
Anyox and Alice Arm tennis
players. They will take part in a
tennis tournament, similar to the
one recently held in Anyox.
Unexpected Callers For
Anyox Visitors
Mr. and Mrs. J. Ellis of Anyox,
who are spending holidays at
Silver City received some unexpected callers the other day,
when Mrs. Bear and her family of
two paid them a surprise visit.
The visit took the form of a
garden party. They explored the
garden, sampled the olover on the,
front lawn, and as their hosts did:
not seem to make any advances,
they departed along tho Illiance
river trail.
DENTISTRY
Dr. Keeley will arrive in
Alice Arm, on Tuesday next
September 2nd., and will
again have his office at
Bruggy's Old Store. His
time will be limited, and it
is advisable that in order to
avoid disappointment   you
Should Act Promptly

British   Columbia Leads in
Fish Production
The report of Hon. William
Sloan, minister of mines and
commissioner of fisheries, shows
that last year British Columbia
again led all the Canadian provinces in the value of her fisheries
products.
Portland Canal News
Another chapter is about to be
written in the history of the Big
Missouri, the property that has
caused more comment, and excited
more interest in this camp than
even the Premier itself.
George Collins, interested in
mining and other enterprises in
this province, and with headquarters now in New York City,
has bonded the Big Missouri, and
development will be resumed at
once. The property was under
bond to the Trites and Wilson
interests, who made payments
totaling $43,000 and did considerable work, but relinquished it for
reasons not divulged, though
guessed at by people familiar with
the property, the guesses being
in nowise detrimental to the
mineral showings.
The information in regard to the
new deal is contained in a letter
from Dan Lindeborg to J. A. Hall,
president of the Salmon River
Bank in Hyder. Dan and his
brother Andy are owners of the
property. The new bond calls for
a total payment of $250,000. A
minimum number of eight men
must continuously be employed,
and work was to have started today. The principals to the deal
have not arrived however, so there
will be a few days' delay. This is
a matter over which there will be
no quibbling. Harry Howson,
who opened up a big shoot of
high-grade on the property two
years ago, will be in charge.
Short  Session of Provincial
Legislature
Prospects now are that the fall
session of the Legislature will open
on Tuesday, October 27th, and be
of brief duration. There is little
contentious legislation on the
agenda aud between six and seven
weeks should be sufficient to dispose of all the business that will
come up.

First B. C. White Bear
Captured
A pure white bear, the first of
its kind to b» captured alive, is
now in Victoria and will be lodged
in Beacon Hill Park. The bear
belongs to the species Urusus Ker-
modei, which is found only on
Gribble Island, north of the Queen
Charlottes. It was captured by
Indians and finally brought to
Victoria. It is said to be worth
many thousands of dollars.
Buffalo Herd In Alberta Up
To Full Strength
Though diminished by the slaughter
of some 2000 head of superfluous bulls
last fall. Canada's big herd of buffalo
at Wainwright Park, Alberta, is
almost back to strength. It is understood that between 1000 and 1600
young recruits in the shape of calves
have joined the band since early
spring. The exact figure of the calf
crop cannot be ascertained until the
fall round-up of the bison, which roam
at large inside a woven wire fence enclosing some 159 square miles of natural prairie with hills and lakes and
clumps of trees. It is thought that a
count will show between 7000 and
7500 head of buffalo all told.
