Immense Success
'The.second entertainment given
I under the auspices of the Anyox

careful preparation-and delineation,
I provided a more adequate insight

More  Development  Work
Done in Alice Arm District
Than Elsewhere
Transportation Needed
The Annual Report of the Minister of Mines, for 1921, has just
come to hand, and the report of
Mr. Geo. Clothier, resident mining
engineer for this district, makes
some very interesting reading
During last year Mr. Clothier covered the whole district of Alice
Arm and reports very favorably on
numerous properties in the Kitsault
Valley, Illiance Valley, Roundy
and Lime Creeks, especially, those
properties on which extensive development work was done last year.
He reports that there was more
actual development work done in
Alice Arm district than anywhere
else in the North-western District.
Such a favorable report coming
from such a conservative source
cannot but help being of great
heijefit to..the camp, , especially
when transportation is available
in the Kitsault Valley.
In regard to transportation up
the Kitsault Valley, he says:
"The plight of the Dolly Varden
mine has had a rather depressing
effect on the town of Alioe Arm
from a business standpoint, and of
course, has not been muoh of a
"boost" for the mining end of the
seotion. However, the most serious
phase of the situation is the question of transportation, due to the
non-operation of the Dolly Varden
Railway, and-later, made worse by
the washing out of a portion of the
railway grade and seriously damaging two or three bridges. It is
vital to the development of the
Kitsault Valley, and consequently
to the town of Alice Arm, that the
railway be kept in repair, if only
for the use of hand oars for a time.
This will practically eliminate any
deleterious results from the inactivity of the Dolly Varden itself."
Homestake Mine to
Operate Next Month
No news has yet reached Alioe
Arm as to when the Homestake
Mining Co. will resume operations.
A report, however, published in
the Victoria Daily Colonist says:"
that Major Criohton expects the
Homestake Co. to commence operations next month and to reach a
steady producing stage before the
end of next year.

Weekly Meeting of the
Community League
Council
At the meeting of the Anyox
Community League Council, held
on Wednesday, May 3, the following members were present: Messrs.
G. Williscroft. president: J; Conway, vice-president; C. J_- Lowry,
Secretary-Treasurer; Councillors
Armour, Buzzelle, Murdoch and
Simpson. s|_
There was some discussion in
connection with the announcement
that recently appeared in the
Prince Rupert Daily News, to the
effect that the oitizens of Stewart
had secured a reduction in fares
between Vancouver and Stewart
-of $2.50 and the secretary was
instructed to write the officials of
the Grand Trunk Railway and
Steamship lines and ask for the
same reduction to, Anyox.
It was decided to hold a dance
in the Mine Hall, on the night of
May 10.
Mr. Murdoch enquired as to how
employees were on the pay roll of
the League and what the total
amount of their wages were. The
secretary was asked to supply this
information at the next meeting on
May 10.
Mr. Buzzelle did not think the
League was functioning properly,
was not getting the results that
should be had, and suggested that
the secretary address a meeting
giving his views of the situation,
and that a committee, together
With the secretary, should interview the Granby Co. and ascertain
what could be done along the lines
of community betterment. In this
connection the chairman of the
Council told the meeting that the
secretary had prepared a survey of
the situation, which had been
handed to him a few days ago, and
that this would be submitted to
the members of the Council in
regular order, to be acted upon by
them as they saw fit.
The chairman of the Council also
told of a meeting to organize the
tennis players at the mine, and
that a further meeting to perfect
organization was to be held there
on Monday, May 8, for the election
fll Officers for a Mine Tennis Club,
for 1922.
An application on behalf of the
International Bible Students for
use of the Recreation Hall on some
Sunday afternoon to be decided on,
was favorably received, and the
request granted.
Football Season
Starts in Anyox
"\ Large Crowd at Game
The football season started in
Anyox on Tuesday evening, May 2,
when the Elk's team defeated' an
aggregation of all-comers by 2
goals to 1. There were over 100
spectators on the field, although
the game was merely in the nature
of a get-together meeting for the
purpose of ascertaining the number of men who would don
football jerseys for the season of
1922. Many of the boys on the
field were in excellent form, and
some fine talent was discovered,
which promises some good sport
for the coming season. The ball
burst ten minutes before time was
up. Ted Simpson was the referee
and handled the whistle to the
satisfaction of the crowd.
The line-up of the tekms were:
Elks: goal, Grey; backs, D. McKenzie and A. Roberts; half-baoks,
W. Robertson, J. Sherman, W.
Crerar; forwards, A. Ritchie, Cy.
Greenwell. P. McDougall H. Baillion, A. Seaton. \
All-comers: goal, Farrell; baokS:
JV Kirkel, F. Brown; half-backs,
J, Wilson, R. Stewart, and Gil-
inour; forwards, Mahoney, Robertson, Richmond, Boyd, Hay,
Twaddle.
Mr. and Mrs. W. Ballentine and
family left on Thursday, for Vancouver, where they will reside. ,
The first league Baseball game
wilt take place on Monday, the
15th. The contending teams will
be Elks and Smelter.
Annual Meeting and
Social at Union Church
The Annual Congregational
Meeting and Social was held in
Union Church on Monday evening.
The reports of the year's work,
ending April 30th. were read,
"showing that the Church has been
alive during the past twelve
months. The Sunday School
shows a decided increase in attendance. The Trail Rangers were
organized a few months ago, each
week the boys meet for club work,
games, etc., and now that the fine
weather is here, every Saturday
the class holds a proper chase or
hike. Both the Trail Rangers and
the Maple Leaf Class (girls) will
hold their summer camps this year,
probably at Alice Arm.
The report of the Ladies Aid
was read by Mrs. McAllister and
showed that the ladies under the
leadership of Mrs. G. P. McColl,
had done good work for the
Churoh.
The officers for the ensuing year
were elected as follows: Messrs.
G. P. MoColl, F. Morrow, T. Kirkwood, R. Wellwood, W. Corbett,
T. Wilby, R. Owens, Dr. Whelan,
and Mrs. McAllister. Solos were
sung by Miss B. Clay, Mrs. Galloway, Mrs. Tankin, Mr. G. McColl,
Miss A. Rowlings, Master J. Gillis,
and Rev. J. Herdman.
Refreshments were served by the
Ladies Aid.
Forclosure on Dolly
Varden Mine
Action Taken by Mr. Geo.
Wingfield
Foreclosure of the Dolly Varden
Silver Mine and Wolf claims and
the Dolly Varden Railroad by the
Consolidated Gold Interests of
Cripple Creek, Colorado, is threatened by proceedings started in the
Supreme Court, says the Vancouver Daily World, of April 28th.
George Wi'igheld, of the Consolidated, who^ioaned $200,000 to the
Dolly Varden a few years ago has
taken steps to foreclose on his
security."
This morning, Paul C. Chiene,
receiver for the. creditors of the
Dolly Varden Mines Company and
the Dolly Varden Company were
added as parties to the suit
brought against the Taylor Engineering Company." *
The above two paragraphs are a
sure sign that developments are
beginning to take place, and if the
foreclosure is proceeded with immediately there is no doubt but that
the new owners will make arrangements to commence'operations this
summer, as there is nothing to be
gained, but a whole lot to be lost
by letting the properties lie idle.
The railroad is rapidly deteriorating,
as is also the power .plant at the
Wolf and numerous buildings,
rolling stock, etc. / The recommencing of operations may not
be as specular as when the Taylor
Co. took over the property, but
operations will probably be more
permanent.
Five Men Charged with
being Drunk at Anyox
During the last two weeks five
men appeared before Stipendary
Magistrate J-. Conway, charged
with being drunk in a public place,
they were: Joseph Scopinich, M.
A. McDonald, Chari68 Johnson,
Donald McKenzie, John Prodanuk.
Each man was fined $50 and $2
Court Costs, or thirty days hard
labor in default of payment, for
infractions of the Government
Liquor Act.
The wild and woolly days of the
northern mining camps are about
over now that the government control the liquor. The liquor store is
for the purpose of supplying the
wants of the man to know how to
handle drink, but drunkeness will
not be tolerated. ,

Prosperity for
Alice Arm
The fact of the likelihood of an
early resumption of activities on the
Dolly Varden and Wolf mining
properties, due to the pending
court proceedings; the possibility of
trail connections being made with
the Naas Valley this summer, and
the favorable report of Mr. Geo.
Clothier on the mining properties
in this section, is having a very
encouraging effect in the Alice
Arm district. With the Dolly
Varden and Wolf properties again
in operation, and transportation
provided in the Kitsault Valley, for
the benefit of other properties,
coupled with trail connections to
the, Naas Valley, Alice Arm
would rest on a solid foundation,
from which a permanent town
could be built-up, and like the
flowing river, we could go on and
oh forever. The future of the
camp never looked brighter than it
does at the present time. The
operation of the Dolly Varden and
Wolf will automatically end the
present deplorable transportation
difficulty in the Kitsault valley.
The fact that transportation is again
available will encourage other companies to enter the field, to develop
the big ore showings, which probably are without parallel in the
whole of B. C.   A large amount
of development work was done
last year by property owners, and
the camp is in a better position to
attract capital than it ever was
before.
Naas Valley Trail
To date, no word has been received as to whether trail connections are to be made between Alice
Arm and the Naas valley, this
year or not. If the government
intends to build the few miles of
trail necessary to open up the
valley it is time some sort of programme was outlined. The
government in spite of the
financial condition of the province
is finding money to build road and
trail systems throughout every other
part of the province, and if the
Naas valley trail is not completed
this year the people of the valley
and Alice Arm should know the
reason why. Only six miles of
trail is needed' to give transportation to the Naas valley. Is this
district to be crucified on the cross
of government cheese-paring parsimony in order that other districts
in the immediate neighbourhood
may grow (at on money expended
from the public purse.? It is time
concerted action was taken by the
people of the Naas valley and
Alice Arm, and if the government
do not intend to make connections
this year, we should, as citizens of
the country know the reason why.
"Radio in the Arctic"
A bunch of the boys were whooping it up in a Malamute saloon,
And the kid who tickled the music box was pounding his usual tune;
When out of the night which was fifty below and into the din and glare,
There rumbled a voice down the chimney pipe, that seemed to come
from the air:
"Hello, hello, all ships and stations; hello, all malamute saloons—
It's KPC transmitting; stand by for a few jazz tunes!"
."Well, this beats me," swore Sam McGee, as he looked at Dan McGrew,
Who'd turned as pale as his white mule ale and the woman that's
known as Lou;
"Hello, hello," said the voice again, "We'll now broadcast to you, a hot
fox-trot by Harold Weeks, and boys, the piece is new!"
"Who in hell is Harold Weeks?" yelled Dangerous Dan MoGrew,
"I'm off this bootleg booze," he said, and aimed a kick at Lou.
But the music swelled like a pent-up flood and it filled the old saloon.
It played The Sheik, Down Bimini Bay, and 'Neath a Tropio Moon.
The kid on the stool banged away like a fool, but the tyirkeep said,
'' "Pipe down!"
A husky howled, but a bullet plowed the brain of the luckless houn'.—
The music stopped.   "That's all tonight," said the voice down the
chimney flue—
Tomorrow night is Artie Night, and, boys, we'll give to you
The low-down stuff that Service wrote of the woman that's known
as Lou,"
Well, Lou turned white as a Klu KIux kite, and wept a Klondyke cry;
"I'll burn,my letters, Dan" sobbed she—"I know that bird will lie!"
1 :"Now witness you me," shrieked Sam McGee, and he broke his glass on
, i the floor— ,
And he signed this pledge on the window ledge—"I'll drink no "moon"
no more."
Dickens' Evening in Anyox
Continued from page 1,
confreres, great credit is due for the
swing added to the whole entertainment by their exceedingly
pleasing music. Those who contributed vocal numbers also enhanced
the evening's pleasure with old
time songs. Last, but not least we
would mention the graceful and
pretty dances put on by the boys
and girls, under the very able
direction of Miss Margaret McColl.
These were a treat indeed and
evidenced painstaking training.
There were many who in numerous ways contributed to the success
of this pleasing affair, and we
believe that our thanks has been
acknowledged for their generous
efforts. To one, however, especially
—Mrs. Sam Herrin—who willingly
and very ably shouldered the major
part of the responsibility as official
organizer and directress, we must
tender tho heartiest congratulations
for her noteworthy achievement.

I
[Operations of the
Granby Co. for 1921
The following is from the report
fof the Minister of Mines for 1921,
land is part _ of the report of Mr.
|Geo. Clothier, district mining
[engineer.
"The Granby Consolidated Min-
ling, Smelting & Power Co., Ltd.
I has fortunately been able to operate
[its entire plant, with the exception
lot' the "pilot" mill, continuously
[throughout the year, and from a
[quantity-production standpoint has
Phad its most successful year since
'the' smelter was "blown in" in
I March, 1914. During that time
[the company has produced from its
Hidden Creek mines, at Anyox
[approximately 200,000,000 lb. of
Ijj copper."
"Up to September, the average
! number of men employed was 1,163;
for the last four months, 926; or an
average  for  the  year   of   1,084
'against 1,277 for1920."
"Notwithstanding the reduction
of labor, the tonnage mined was
896,802 tons, an inorease of about
95,000 tons over last year, swelling
the copper output to 34,067,185 lb.,
an increase of nearly 9,000,000 lbi,
or about 35 per cent, over last year.
The gold and silver yields were
7,652 oz, and 314,204 oz. respectfully, eacn less Per *on ''hah last
year, due to the fact that the
quartz mined for flux from the
Rambler carried no metal contents.
Although there was a marked increase in the copper output, the
total value of the year's production
will be considerably less than 1920,
on  account  of  the shrinkage in
market prices of silver and copper."
"No quartz was mined from the
Granby Point quarries this year,
but 22,500 tons was taken by the
company from the Rambler claim
just above the smelter."
"The company's lime rock
quarries at Swamp Point were not
operated until April, the require"
merit's for the first three months
being drawn from storage. A total
of 12,000 tons was mined during
the balance of the year."
The greater portion of the 900,
000 tons of ore mined and smelted
was produced from the glory-hole
and underground stopes7 above the
385-foot level, which is the main
haulage level to the crushers,
which are cm the 230-level—No. 1
underground, and No. 2 crusher
on the surface, both discharging to
storage bins above the 150-foot
level, the main haulage to the
smelter. Also considerable heavy
sulphide ore from. No. 1 and No. 5
ore bodies was hoisted from stopes
above the 150-foot and below the
385-foot levels, the tonnage hoisted
gradually increasing as the stopes
became larger."
The large shrinkage stope in the
No. 2 ore-body, which was started
in 1916, was finished in the early
part of September, making available such a large tonnage of ore
that mining was discontinued in
other parts of that ore-body.
About 15,000 tons monthly was
drawn from this stope during the
last three months of the year. In
the five or six years that this stope
has been in operation there has
been about 75,000 tons of what is
considered high grade ore broken,
and it is worthy of note that during the mining of this large
tonnage there was only one accident that resulted fatally' and no
others of any consequence."
