Biggest and Best
Sporting Night
in Anyox
A huge crowd packed the Gymnasium on Friday evening last and
witnessed the best boxing and
wrestling show ever staged by the
local B. P. 0. E. Everyone present oonoeded the evening to be a
great success and that full value
was received iu exchange for the
price of admission. Seven high
class boxing bouts and a wrestling
match made up the programme.
Tho Hrst preliminary bout was
iu the paper-weight class, when
Tommy Scott and Harold Dresser
both of Anyox, mixed it for two
fast rounds to a draw.
ln the second preliminary, Ruck-
haber and Docherty, two local
boys in the 145 lb. class, slugged
eaoh other for three torrid sessions
The fans got a great kick out of
this bout, which just about stole
the show. The bout was declared
a draw.
Henry Deeth of Anyox 128 lbs.
won a clean-cut verdict over N.
. Gurvich of Prince Rupert 122 lbs.
This bout was fast with plenty of
action with Deeth having a decided advantage in every round.
In the fourth preliminary go,
Eddie Clay and R. Hooper boxed
a three round exhibition.
Stewart Barclay of the Beach
and Sid Brown of the Mine were
the contestants in the fifth item on
the  bill.   These   boys   put   up a
Snappy     exhibition   stepping   -the
three rounds with plenty of action
, giving the fans quite a treat.
The match between Eddie Smith
of Prince Rupert and Russell McMillan of Anyox proved to be a
walk away for the latter, who was
far too fast and rugged for his
opponent. The bell saved Smith
from a knockout in the Hrst round
and he fared no better in the second, his seconds throwing in the
Rponge after thirty seconds of fighting in the second session. Smith
weighed 95^ lbs. and McMillan
Battling Gurvich of Prince Rupert knocked out Jimmy Ferguson
of Anyox in the fifth round of the
scheduled six round main event.
Gurvich had things all his own
way from the start. Ferguson
was down for the count of nine
twice in the third and once in the
fourth. Ferguson landed only one
telling blow during the whole fight
that being a hard right to the chin
in the second round, but he failed
to follow up his advantage. Gurvich weighed 152 lbs. and Ferguson 148J4 lbs.
Allan Kelton of Vancouver was
the referee for the preliminary
bouts. Lewis was third man in
the ring for the two main events.
Dr. D. R. Learoyd was time keeper
and F. McLellan and Dr. H. 8.
Trefry, judges. Mr. B. M. Buck
acted as ohairman for the evening.
The wrestling match between
Allan Kelton of Vancouver and
Dick Stubbs of Maple Bay was the
final item ou the programme. The
match was billed to go four rounds
best two out of three falls. The
rounds were to be of ten minutes
duration with five minutes rest.
Neither secured a fall in the first
two rounds, both wrestling hard
with Kelton being the aggressor.
Kelton secured the first fall, one,
minute and ten seconds after the
start of the third round, using a
hammer-lock. Stubbs evened
things up in the fourth session
when he  threw his man with a
Ghosts Galore at United
Church Hallowe'en
Thursday, October 28th. was
a happy occasion for many when
the United Church Ladies' • Aid,
with their invited guests, assembled
at the Church for a Hallowe'en
Commencing at 8.30 p.m. every
moment was filled with pleasurable
events, in keeping with the spirit of
the night. Apple ducking, candle
blowing, games and contests kept
the guests athrill and keyed up.
An excellent supper had been
arranged in the Church Hall and at
10.30 after a haphazard hunt for
supper partners, the guests filed
out through a darkened hallway and
found their hand grasped by the
clammy hand of a ghostly form.
After the supper was over, but
before arising, the guests took
part in a contest, guessing the
names of different ghosts of departed notables, Biblical and Historical.
Eve came in ghostly array, carrying
the traditional apple and serpent,
George Washington with his
hatchet and Laura Secord with her
milking pail. Several others pass>
ed in turn before the astonished eyes
of the assembled guests.
Then as a happy climax the witch
appeared, first to present prizes for
the different contests and last but
not least to brew magic wherein
each and every guest received a
fortune. After joining in singing
"Auld Lang Syne" the happy
One other affair is written against
the record of the Ladies Aid as excellent, as one and all declared it a
most enjoyable evening.
Committees Formed by
Anyox I. 0. D. E.
On Tuesday afternoon the Collison of Kincolith Chapter of I. O. D.
E. held their regular meeting in the
Recreation Hall. Among the business transacted was the forming of
committees to assist the Service
Men with the Armistice Dance,
which is to be held in the Gymnasium on Monday November Hth.
A committee was also formed for
the sale of poppies on Armistice
Day. A sum of money was donated
by the Chapter to the sotarium for
crippled children at Victoria B. C.
Six new members were also taken
in. As many members as possible
are asked to turn out to the Armistice Services to be held in the Recreation Hall on Sunday evening at
7.45 p,m.
body scissors in four minutes and
fifteen seconds. Both contestants
agreed to wrestle an additional ten
minutes to decide the match, but
Kelton was unable to continue
because of a broken rib. The
match was declared a draw.
Charlie Docherty was the third
man in the ring for this matoh.
Taking it by and large it was
one of the nicest entertainments
ever offered the publio in this oity.
The committee deserve great credit
for the smooth and efficient manner
in which the several events were
ran off. The Moose Orchestra enlivened proceedings with several
well executed numbers during the
intervals between the different
events. The crowd in attendance
was estimated at about four hundred.
Season's Work at
Keystone Very
Operations at the Keystone mine
which are being conducted by the
Keystone Mining Co. closed down
this week until next spring. Although the main ore body was not
reached, very satisfactory results
were attained. It is estimated that
another month's work would have
been instrumental in reaching the
main ore body.
The Bowyer tunnel is now in a
distance of 682 feet from the portal
and in addition 54 feet of crosscuts
have been driven.
The first 392 feet of tunnel was
driven in argillite, granite then
being encountered. This year all
work has been in granodiorite and
a diorite dyke.
The junction of two veins was
struck at a distance of 660 feet from
the portal. These veins were on
the contact of argillite and granodiorite. They diverge, one following
the argillite wall and the other traversing the granite.
The granite vein was drifted on
the hanging wall for a distance of
SO feet, directly below tne upper
tunnel. A crosscut was then driven
18 feet back to the argillite wall.
The crosscut is at the end of the
Bowyer tunnel, and is directly
vertically below the upper tunnel, a
distance of 218 feet separating the
two tunnels.
An 18ft. fracture was driven on.
This fracture show? 3^2 feet of distinct vein, carrying a seam of solid
zinc ore varying from 3 to 5 inches
on the footwall side, which is in
argillite, with granite on the hanging wall. The ore is composed of
black zinc and is expected to carry
silver values.
In the upper tunnel a 7 ft. winze
was put down on avein of ore which
was 8 inches wide at the top of the
tunnel. At the bottom of the winze
it had widened to 3 feet. Both
walls of the vein are in granite. The
vein contains 14 inches of first
class lead-zinc-silver ore on the
hanging wall, the balance of the
3 feet is, however, well mineralized.
Operations were in charge of Mr.
Rowland King, who is an efficient
mining engineer. He is the type of
manager who gets things done
quickly and economically, and moreover does them right. During the
summer 290 feet of underground
work was driven, it was practically
all driven in hard granite, which
made the going somewhat slow.
Six men were on the payroll most
of the time, and two shifts were
The Keystone is a very promising
property, and a month or two next
summer will undoubtedly locate the
main ore body. It is ideally located

Dr. George T. Williams president
of the company, and Mr. H. Van
Nuys secretary-treasurer visited the
mine during October and Mr. Harry
Bowyer, a director of the company
paid a visit this week. All were
very pleased with the progress made
and the great possibilities.
The Anyox branch of the British
Empire Service League will hold
their annual Armistice Day banquet
at the Beach Mess on Friday evening, November 11th. at 8 p.m.
Tickets are now on sale. This is
the big night of the year for all
those who donned uniform during
the Great War, and they will all be
there to celebrate its close.
Anyox Children Revel
At Hallowe'en Party
And Dance
The Beach Athletic Club were
hosts to their juvenile pupils and
friends on Hallowe'en Night. The
occasion was a Fancy Dress Party
in which there ,were games and
The children of whom there were
about 100 present, turned out in a
surprisingly varied array of costumes
some of which were decidedly original. The judging was in the capable
hands of Mrs. C. P. Ashmore, Mrs. G. S. Macdonald, Mrs.
S. Grimason, and Mr. Sinclair the
Bank Manager and Dr. Geo. Macdonald. The consensus of opinions
was that they had performed a most
difficult task very creditably.
The prize winners were:
Best Dressed. Girls: Helen
Simpson, (Mid-Victorian Lady).
Boys: Theodore Asimus, (Toreador).
Best Advertising. Dora Grigg
and Mildred Dresser, (Gold Dust
Best Hallowe'en. Girls: Irene

Following the supper, the prizes
were presented by Mrs. Cameron.
The cost of the prizes and decor
ations was borne by subscriptions
from certain puplic spirited ladies
and gentlemen of Anyox. The refreshment? for the evening were donated by the ladies of Anyox who
were whole-heartedly behind the
movement. The Granby Company
and the General Store also helped
to provide the refreshments. The
supper arrangements were in the
capable hands of Mesdames Scott,
Harrison, Cameron, Munroe, Shelton, Brown and Cripps. Supper
was served at 10.30 p.m. and there
was plenty of good eats for all.
The decoration arrangements were
handled by Mesdames Harrington,
Coates, McKay, Miss Beryl McKay
and Mr. Lloyd McKay, while Mr,
Gordon Lawn attended to the lighting arrangements for the photographs which were taken by Mr.
Sid Davis.
Mr. Frank Dresser and his orchestra composed of Steve Jones
(saxophone) and Jack Evans
(drums) dispensed music of a high
order for the dancing. The party
came to a close at 12 o'clock after a
very pleasant evening which was
enjoyed by all, young and old alike.
D. Sorrenti returned on Wednesday from a trip south.
Bond is Taken on
The North Star
Friday, December 9th.
Watch for Further Particulars
Another mine will be operated
throughout the coming winter at
Alice Arm. This is the North Star.
A bond has been taken on it by J.
Strombeek, who has agreed to include Gus. Pearson in the bond, the
latter taking a half interest. The
bonding price is $50,000 and payments are spread over three years.
A tunnel will be driven this winter
200 feet in length. It will be driven
on the ore ledge, 100 feet lower elevation than the old workings. This
tunnel will give a vertical depth of
160 feet from the surface.
Mining of ore will be carried on
and as soon as a sufficient tonnage
is available smelter shipments will
be made.
The portal of the new tunnel is
only about 700 feet from the Dolly
Varden glory hole, and as the tunnel
progresses the distance will be
The North Star is situated on
the same hill as the Dolly Varden.
It is at a lower elevation, and joins
that famous high grade property on
the east. It is the opinion among
mining men that the North Star
carries the continuation of the high
grade ore bodies of the Dolly Varden. If it does another fortune will
be made in mining, and if it does
not there is enough ore on the North
Star that should pay handsome
profits by shipping to a smelter.
Everything, however, is in favor of
encountering considerable high
grade silver ore. The high grade
at the Dolly Varden was among the
richest ever taken from underground.
One block of 40 tons yielding
The owners of the North Star
are Ole Evindson, Gus. Pearson,
and Gus. Anderson of Alice Arm,
Ole Pearson of Sweden and K. L.
Eik of Saskatchewan. It was
staked soon after the Dolly Varden
and three of the above named were
original owners of the Dolly Varden.
Ore From Ouray Assays
Very High
The owners of the Ouray property
received a pleasant surprise during
the week, when returns were received from ore samples sent out for
assaying. The returns were 47 ozs.
silver, 1.08 per cent, copper and
trace of gold per ton.
A sample of ore assayed last year
gave still higher values, being 54
ozs. silver, 11 per. cent, copper and
.08 gold per ton.
The ledge from where these values were obtained has been traced
on the surface a distance of 2000
feet. The exact width has not yet
been determined, but at one point
surface stripping has shown it to be
60 feet in width.
Twenty-five open cuts have been
driven across the ledge on a distance
of 2000 feet, all showing ore.
The Ouray is an extremely promising property. It is in the ceSitre
of the rich mineral zone of the
Upper Kitsault and joins the Wolf
on the north and west. It is owned
by Messrs. S. Dumas, J. B. Robertson, and E. A. Egan.
Harry Bowyer, a director of the
Keystone Mining Co, arrived on
Monday from Seattle and left
again on Wednesday, after inspecting the Keystone mine. sfc[3

The grain crop this year on the
prairies is the largest in history.
It is also predicted that the westward flow of grain will greatly
surpass any previous year. Slowly
the shackles that has held Pacific
ports from shipping grain are being
removed and from now on the
volume of grain will increase each
year. Grain like water will find
its natural outlet, and the natural
outlet for a large poition
of the prairie, grain is the Western
ports. All this spells increased
prosperity for British Columbia.
More money in circulation means
more homes; it also increases the
wealth of our prominent business
men. This means they will have
more money to invest, a portion of
which will naturally be invested in
British Columbian mines. The
farmers help the miners by creating
wealth, and the miners assist the
farmers by creating home markets.
One industry is not independent of
the other. The prosperity of any
single one is reflected on all others.
A western outlet for the Peace
River district has been talked
about for years. It has received
tenfold publicity during the past
few months, and it is almost certain that within the next five years
at least a railway connecting the
coast with this vast empire will be
built. The time is rotten ripe for
a railway. The richest agricultural portion of the province lies
dead and dormat for lack of transportation. The building of a
railway would almost double the
population of the province. It
would make taxable vast tracts of
rich agricultural land, and foster
industry as no other railway has
done in western Canada. The
Peace River country is rich in
everything. It has millions of acres
of the richest agricultural land in
Canada. It has coal and minerals
of all descriptions, and also excel-
ent stands of timber. In addition
to all these assets it has an incomparable climate.
The Ford Motor Co., which is a
large buyer of Lake copper, is now
using its own steamers to transport
the metal from the smelter docks
to Detroit.
Canadian Mining Institute Will Hold Annual
Meeting Vancouver

and in Nanaimo on November 25th.
is anticipated by mining men
throughout the Province with
great interest.
The meetings in the past have
invariable attracted large attendances and have been memorably
enjoyable. The present one will
undoubtedly prove no exception to
the rule. In brief, the programme
as arranged will include reviews of
the principal mining developments
of the year by the Provincial Mineralogist, Mr. J. D. Galloway, by
tlie British Columbia representative of the Geological Survey, Dr.
V. Dolmage, and by the Resident
Engineers. Tins will occupy the
first morning session. The remaining three sessions in Vancouver
will be occupied by discussions on
three major topics, namely:
"Recent improvements and innovations iu Flotation Practice."
'"Electrical Prospecting" andPlacer
Mining conditions. The first mentioned topic will be introduced in
papers by Mr. W. B. Timm of
the Dominion Department of Mines
Mr. Dale L. Pitt of the Premier,
Mr. Oughtred of the Sullivan, and
Mr. H. A. Pearce of the Britannia.
There will be a banquet on Thursday evening, November 24th. following which Col. W. W. Foster
will deliver a popular lecture on
'The retreat from Mons".
On the morning of the third day
of the meeting, steamer will be
taken to Nanaimo where there will
be an afternoon session devoted
mainly to a general discussion on
the "Benetieiation of Coal" to be
introduced in a paper by Professor
Robert H. Clarke of the University
of B. C, entitled "The Production
of Liquid Fuels from Coal."
The business session will be followed by a dinner and festivities
in the evening. The meetings of
the Institute are open to the public and a cordial invitation to
attend is extended to all interested
in the progress and welfare of our
mining industry.

been even prospected; 200,000 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, security of which is guaranteed by
Crown Grants.
Practically all British Columbia Mineral Properties upon which development work has been done
are described in some one of the Annual Keports of the Minister of Mines. Those considering
mining investments should refer to such reports. They are available without charge on application

Since the disoovery of the Flin

Now the time of expiration of
another option draws near, and
once more the mining men of Canada are on the quivive as to what
will happen. December 1 is the

will undertake the development
of this enormous ore body or
whether they will decide the time
is not yet ripe to spend the very
large sum of money necessary to

Successful   Hallowe'en
Dance Provide Many
The big annual Hallowe'en Dance
held in the Elks' Hall on Monday
evening1 under the auspices of the
Anyox Ladies' Hospital Auxiliary
was easily one of the best dances
of the season.
A large crowd of dancers filled
the hall until the early hours of the
morning. The Arcadian orchestra
supplied the music, which was excellent.
The hall was beautifully decorat
ed with all the Hallowe'en emblems
consisting of black cats, witches
and pumpkins. Some very novel
designs were used, which drew exclamations of admiration from those
present, and reflects great credit on
the ladies responsible.
The Dugout in which supper was
served was also tastefully decorated.
Mrs. W. F. Eve, the convenor is
deserving of much credit for the
great success of the evening. On
her shoulders fell the major part of
organizing and carrying it to a successful issue. She was ably assisted by the other ladies of the Auxiliary, who also are deserving of
Their unselfish efforts have been
the means of providing many comforts for unfortunate inmates of the
hospital during the coming year.
It is such acts as these shown by the
ladies that makes life more pleasant
tending as they do to soften the
hard knocks received by many during their perhaps none too happy

Alice Arm Children's
Hallowe'en Party
A children's Hallowe'en party
was held at the Alice Arm School
on Saturday evening. All the
children were present and also
quite a numbei of adults. A most
enjoyable time was spent. Games
of all kinds were indulged in including ducking for apples, apple
on a string, guessing contests, etc.
Prizes were given and almost every
child received one.
The walls were elaborately decorated with lighted pumpkins, cats,
witches, etc. most of which was the
work of the children.
Refreshments were served upstairs for both adults and children.
They were provided by the ladies
and thoroughly enjoyed.
The children enjoyed every minute of the evening, and great credit
is due their teacher, Mr. Greenaway
who organized the party, and who
saw that everyone enjoyed themselves. He is an adept entertainment organizer, judging from the
success attained on Saturday.
