Prominent Visitors To
Toric Predict Great
Future for Mine
H. J. Reade, who is a director of
the Consolidated Homestake Mining & Development Co., A. W,
Yount, wlio is a large shareholder
in the company and J. B. Otto,
sailed for Vancouver on Monday
last, after inspecting the Torio
mine now being developed by the
Homestake Co. with such spectacular results.
In an interview with the Herald
previous to their departure, all
were enthusiastic over everything
they saw at the Toric. Mr. Yount
stated that although he had anticipated seeing a large quantity of
ore developed, he had not expected
to view such a tremendous ore
body, or of, such richness as had
been his pleasure during his visit
to the mine. He predicted a
wonderful future for the Toric, and
' felt confident that future development work would disclose ore
bodies that would place the Toric
among the big producers of British
Columbia. He spoke highly of the
efficient manner in which development work had been carried out
under the direction of A. C. H.
Gerhardi, whose method of developing a property might well be
copied with advantage by others
developing a mine from the prospect stage, and was sure that
under the present management
successful operation of the mine
will be attained,
Mr. Otto is a member of the
mining fraternity, who understands the business from A to Z,
also spoke highly of the Toric, and
I said in reply to a question that if
quantity of ore and values made
a mine, then the Toric will be a
producing mine after the majority
of us have run our natural span of
life and passed to other spheres.
He deducted this assertion from
investigations made by himself
while spending five days at the
Mr. Reade, who is also a much
travelled mining man, stated that
he was taking south with him
seventy-two samples of ore from
the mine for a general analysis.
The uniformity of values throughout the ore body was one of the
chief characteristics, and argentite
and native silver were conspiouous
everywhere, Suoh an, extensive
ore body as has been developed at
the Torio is without parallel in the
mining history of the north, and
that there was no question but that
one of the largest mines of  the
i province would shortly be opened
up.    He was   extremely   pleased
with the business-like manner in
whioh operations were conducted
j at the mine, and stated that the
I Toric holds a record for the amount
I of ore developed at suoh a small
j; oost in so short a space of time.

Anyox Beach Football
Wins Trophy
The Miners entered the finals of
the Anyox Football Cup competition, when they defeated the Smelter last Monday evening, one goal
to nil. Ernie Dearlove notched
the lone tally. Sterling work on
the part of the Mine defense was
the feature of the game.
The curtain was rung down on
the football season Thursday evening, when the Beach and Mine met
in tho final for the Anyox cup, the
former team winning the silverware for tlie second successive year
the score was one to nil.
Winning the toss, the Beach
elected to. kick up the field, and
from the first toot of the whistle
kept the ball almost continually
in the Mine end of the field. Only
high class work on"the part of the
Mine defense kept them from
counting in the first half. S.
Stewart, W. Hunter and Anderson
were particularly good. Royl was
tested several' times in this half,
but always cleared in fine style.
The Beach half-back line was
working in fine form, feeding their
forwards beautifully.
The second half still saw the
Cup holders fighting hard for a
goal, but were uot rewarded until
seven minutes from the end, when
■Elliioir found lilie nee on a rebound from the goaly after a well
placed corner kick by Wilson.
Hunter, in goal for the winners,
was tested a few times, making
several nice saves off shots that
were tagged for the net. O'Donnell was the pick of the Beach
eleven, Robertson aud Wilson also
turned in a" nice performance.
Evans handled the whistle in a
manner satisfactory to all,
Teams were: Mine: Royl, S.
Stewart, W. Hunter, Gilmour, R.
Stewart, Anderson, Cane, Evans,
Nesbit, Jacques, Dearlove.
Beach: Hunter. L. Ingram, R.
Ingram, Lavery, O'Donnell, Brown,
Wilson, Taylor, Ellison, Robertson,
and Craggs.
Eight Miles of Trail Built on
Kitsault North-east Fork
This summer has seen the completion of eight miles of good
horse trail in the north-east fork
valley of the Kitsault river. During the week two men were sent
up to cut out some rock in order to
eliminate the building of a bridge
across the river, The trail is within 1000 feet of the Devlin property,
During, the summer the
trail was tied up to the Granby
Co's railway on the Kitsault Flats,
whioh procedure made it unnecessary to build an expensive trail
across the flats.

Duck and geese hunting opens
on September 15th. There are a
number of geese on the Kitsault
Flats, which hunters are keeping
an eye on and hoping they will be
as tame after the 15th. as at present, but that point is a problem
some hunters wish they could
solve. Already someone has been
hunting these geese, which is a
flagrant violation of the law, and
which if persisted in is liable to
bring trouble to these pre-season
A number of local hunters in-
dignately point out that as they
have to pay a hunting licence, no
one should shoot at the birds before the open season commences,
and swear to report to the
authorities anyone who is caught

Alice Arm Dance Was
Brilliant Affair
A very successful dance was
held at the Pioneer Hotel on
Wednesday evening when a large
number of Alice Arm people and
also a number of Anyox visitors
tripped the light fantastic from
9 p.m. until the early hours of
Thursday morning. Although the
dance was not given in honor of
any special event, or sponsored by
any organization it proved to be
one of the outstanding social events
of the summer season. The floor
was crowded from the commencement until the Home Waltz was
played, and even then some were
loth to leave, so bewitching was
the music rendered by the orchestra.
The success of the evening was
due in a large measure^ to the
super') rendering of the various
numbers by tlie Alice Arm orchestra. This orchestra has attained a high degree of efficiency
aiid ranks among the best of an?
northern mining town. E. Aubas-
son, who manipulated. the traps
and drums, made his debut to the
Alice Arm public as a musician
and is a decided acquisition.
Those composing the orchestra
were: Mrs. T. W. Falconer, piano;
Mrs. J. Laidlaw, saxophone; Chas,
Hutchison, clarinet; R. Pedvin,
susaphone; Lome Falconer, violin;
E. Aubasson, traps and drums.
Supper was served at midnight
and the repast reflects great credit
on the ladies of the town who supplied the dainty refreshments.
Death Occurs As Result
Simple Accident
A fatal accident occurred on
Tuesday at Anyox. when Josys
Lovrio met almost sudden death as
the result of a simple accident.
Deceased was using an iron bar iu
order to move a heavy skip, when
the bar slipped and hit him under
the jaw, and he expired a few minutes afterwards. Deceased was
33 years of age, and was a native
of Syria, in which country he
leaves a wife and child to mourn
his loss.
At the inquest held on Wednesday afternoon, a verdict of accidental death was returned, with no
blame attached to anyone. The
funeral was held from the Catholic
Church, on Thursday evening at 5
p.m. and was attended by a large
number of friends of the deceased.
Interment took place at the Anyox
cemetery, Rev. Father J. Fleok
officiating. The funeral, arrangements were in oharge of Geo. E.
Mine Hard Times Dance
Is Big Success
To the captivating music supplied by the Melodians, the Mine
Club's own orchestra, the boys up
on the hill entertained at a successful "Hard Times" dance in their
hall on Tuesday evening, when a
capacity crowd enjoyed many of
the advance hits of the coming season. The musicians are making a
feature of being particularly up-to-
date, and mingled with an old
favorite here and there were such
numbers as "The Flapper Wife"
and "I Want to be Happy," the
last named being encored no less
than five times. During the even
ing much amusement was caused
by a small fine being awarded to
any who forgettingly showed signs
of "wealth" upon their person.
Doo Vittoria ''coughed up a
quarter" through absent niindedly
looking at his watch. After supper intermission, Ed. Waterman
very kindly relieved Tommy Evans
at the druins for an odd number or
two, whilst the latter took a "busman's holiday."
Over eighty guests were present,
the majority being friends from
the beach. Many of the mine
were conspicuous by their absence.

The success of an individual or
community is not due to a policy
of patiently waiting for something
to turn up that will place them on
a pinnacle of fame. Success
spells work every time and the
greater the success the harder the
toil. If the people of Alice Arm
had not busied themselves and
sent an ore display to the Vancouver exhibition, the camp would
not have attained the success, it
did in winning such a large number of prizes. Its name would
not have been mentioned, and we
would have slipped another step
down the ladder. As it is we
have won considerable fame in
mining circles, and now we have
started on the right track let us
keep the good work going.' To
the mining property owners we
would say, bring in your best ore
samples. If the property is not already represented at the B. C,
Chamber of Mines, your sample
will be sent there as, a permanent
exhibit. If your property is al
ready represented, the sample will
be kept for the Vancouver exhibition next year, or if the Chamber of Mines request samples for
some special exhibition they will
no doubt be forwarded. Bring in
your samples, and the officers of
the local branch of the B. C.
Chamber of Mines will guarantee
that they will be shipped where
the greatest advantage can be obtained.
Alice Arm Ores Carry
Off Prizes Vancouver
All the copper experts of the
continent seem unanimously agreed
that copper will range around the
15 cent mark for some time, and
possibly exceed it, and let's hope
their predictions are true. Copper at 15 or 16 cents per pound
would be a great boon to this dis
trict. It would place the Granby
Co. in a position where they
would be able to anticipate some
returns for the money expended
during the past few years and
would possibly encourage them to
widen their scope, and energetical
ly develop other ore  deposits in
Alice Ann ranked high in
honors in the competition for prizes
for niettalic ores at the recent
Vancouver exhibition. In competing against the whole province
Alice Arm carried off three first
prizes and three second prizes,
leading the province for the nurn-
Her of prizes attained by any
single district. In view of the
fact that the ore display sent was
gathered together in a hurry, and
a number of well known properties
were not represented, the success
attained reflects great credit to
the camp, and should convince the
most skeptical of the mining
fraternity throughout the province
that the Alice Arm district is one
that will stand investigation.

The must exciting baseball game
held on the Alice Arm diamond
this season was pulled off on Sunday the 16th., when the Alice Arm
All Stars trimmed the veteran
Anyox Store team to the tune of

Alice Arm Properties
Give High Values
Some samples of ore picked at
random from the dump on the
Ouray group of claims and recently sent out for assaying .by S.
Dumas, one of the owners of the
property, have given the gratifying results as follows:   gold, 0.04;
raiiver, 54- oho. per  -ton -and   ooppor
11.5 per cent. The Ouray, which
joins the Wolf on the south-west,
is owned by S. Dumas, J. B.
Robertson and A. E. Egan, who
have at different times done considerable work on the property,
chiefly stripping and open cuts.
It is the intention of S. Dumas to
construct a roomy log cabin on the
ground this year, and later a tunnel will probably be driven so that
depth can be obtained on this
promising ore body.
Return? received a few days ago
from samples of ore sent out for assaying from the Billy Mac property. The values received were
very encouraging, and were as
follows; gold, 0.04; silver, 10 ozs.
per ton; lead, 22 per cent; zinc, 20
per cent. The Billy Mac is situated on McGrath Mountain, and is
within easy distance of the town
of Alice Ann.
