IA Road From Alice
Arm to Ayiansh Needed
To Open Up the Fertile Naas River Valley
NEW STRIKES OF
ORE ON BELLEVUE
AND GLACIER VIEW
Two Well-known Residents of Anyox are
Married
Great interest is being taken in
j Alice  Arm and Anyox over the
I proposal   to build a wagon road
from Alice Ann into the Ayiansh
I Valley, oh the Naas River.   Alioe
Arm is the natural outlet for that
I fertile valley, following the Illiance
[ River pack trail for 11 miles and
I then dropping down into the Naas
| Valley the distance would be only
thirty miles.    The distance-" from
the Ayiansh Valley to the mouth
of the Naas River is sixty miles,
and the road would terminate on
an   Indian' Reserve,   and only a
weekly  boat service is available,
The distance to Terrace is seventy
, miles and there would be an additional haul of over ninty miles on
the railroad in. order to get the
produce to Prince Rupert and over
another 100 miles in order to get
it to Anyox or Alice Arm.    If the
road terminates at Alice Arm the
distance would be only about 30
miles, four times per week boats
!■■ ave Alice for' Anyox and Prince
[ Rnpert.     Anyox  is  the  natural
market for  the  Ayiansh  Valley
and will take all the dairy produce,
fruit,   vegetables  and  live  stock
Ayiansh can produce for a long:
; time to come.
Everyone in the district is heartily in favor of building the road
It will open up for cultivation one
of the richest and most fertile valleys in the province. It will
divert a stream of traffic through
Alice Arm and give us connection
with the interior and will allow
the land hungry population of this
province to settle on and cultivate
160 acres of land, knowing that
they have a market for their
produce. There are scores of men
in Alice Arm and : Anyox with
wifes and families who would
settle in the Naas Valley if they
only had the means of transporting
their produce out.
It is^up to the citizens of this
district, especially Alice Arm, to
do all in their power to hav6 a
road built into the Naas Valley as
soon as possible, A public meeting
should be called early in the future
so that everyone's opinion regarding the road can be heard.
The matter can tlien be taken up
with the local member of the
Legislature, Mr. H. F. Kergin, and
there js not the slightest doubt
that armed with all the facts of the
case and by pointing out to the
government the immense advantages to be derived from building
the road, that the road will be
built next summer.
Another strike of high-grade ore
has been made at the Bellevue
mine the early part of this week.
The ore is a high-grade steel galena
and the lead is from 1 to 3 feet in
width. It is a new strike and is
on the west side of the river, 100
fe|t above the river level, and is on
the Blenheim claim. The lead has
been traced on the surface for a
distance, of 300 feet and 5 crosscuts have already been made on
the surface. Mr. A. J. Hughes,
who is in charge of operations
brought samples of ore from this
strike to town, on Thursday, and
it is some of the finest ore that has
ever come from the Illiance River
district. He also brought down
samples of copper and galena ore
from the Glaoier View, which was
taken from a lead 25 feet wide,
also samples of copper glance and
brittle silver ore from the Glaoier
View.
The Anglican Church was the
scene of a quiet wedding on September 6th, Tuesday afternoon at
1 o'clook, when Miss Minnie Dorothy Gerrard and Mr. Arthur
Wray McTaggart were united in
marriage by the Rev. J. B. Gibson.
The bride looked very charming

left on the Awake at three o'clock

Starved and Then
Beaten to Death
At Alice Arm and Anyox
Baseball Game
"Man's Inhumanity to Man"
was vividly demonstrated last
Sunday, when the Alice Arm
Baseball nine endeavoured to wrest
the honors from the Anyox aspirants to the northern B. C. Championship. At the end of the seventh
innings which was to conclude the
contest, the score stood 7 to 7„ but
as the Anyox players insisted upon
continuing, the visitors acceded to
their demands and took the field,
although weak and famished from
hunger. No mercy was shown
them either by the umpires or the
goddess of luck, and the local boys
added five more counters to their
string and finished the game with
a final score of 12 to 7 in favor of
Anyox.
On the way home the visitors
feebly but earnestly sang that old
familiar little ditty, called: "Come
after Breakfast, bring your Lunch
and go before Dinner-time."
Since the reduction of wages at
Anyox, oh September 1st,, 200
men have been laid off. The Che-
loshin left on Monday loaded to
capacity. The Prince Rupert went
out with 100 on board, last Thursday. Wages have been cut all
round, some of the superintendents
getting their salaries cut as much
as 50 per cent.
Mining Engineers to
Examine the Dolly
Varden & Wolf Mines
Mr. H. Townsend, who examined
the Dolly Varden Mine two weeks
ago, arrived in town on Thursday,
accompanied by Mr. Billingsley,'
mining engineer for the Anaconda
Copper Co., Butte, Montana. They
will inspect the Dolly Varden and
Wolf Mines and probably other
properties on the upper Kitsault;
GAME LAWS TO BE
ENFORCED
Owners of rifles and Shotguns under
the Criminal Code, must obtain a
permit from the provincial constable,
This permit does not entitle the owner
to hunt birds or game. For this, a
hunting licence must be taken out.
The season for birds opened on September 3rd. for this district. Holders
of Miners Licence's are not allowed to
shoot game except for food when
actually engaged in prospecting. Instructions have been issued to all
constables and game wardens to enforce the law.
NEW BUILDINGS FOR
ALICE ARM
The new school is already beginning to take shape. The walls are
up and the rafters «,re on, and it
will when finished be a great improvement over the old school.
It is being built by volunteer labor
and the boys at work are to be
commended for the splendid showing already made.
 ■—     > -..   .
News has been received from
Vancouver, that Mr. John Pinder-
Moss, A.E.I.C., etc., the newly
appointed organizer of night schools
and Technical Education for Anyox
has been confined to his bed with
influenza, but is expected to leave
on Thursday to take up his new
duties.
, Mr. Pinder-Moss has had a wide
experience in structural engineering, having designed and superintended the construction of three
model towns to accomodate 9000
to 11,000 population, besides several sewage disposal, water and other
works of a municipal nature.
Success has also attended him as
a teacher. Appointed to the
faculty of the Technical High
School, Edmonton, Alta. as head
of the Architectural Engineering
Department when that institution
was inaugurated some eighty years,
ago, he held that position until
quite recently. Commencing with
twelve boys and girls, this school
now handles several thousand
students per week and held the
record for many years of being the
premier school in Canada in
Structural Engineering.

, Alice Arm to
Ayiansh Road.     1
The road from Alice Arm to
Ayiansh has become a live issue
in the district and it is the duty of
everyone to get together and push
it through. If the government can
find the money to finish the P. G.
E. Railroad and build miles of
auto roads in the southern part of
the province, it can find a few
. thousand dollars in order to build
a road to open tip one of the
richest agricultural valleys in the
province. The Hon. John Oliver
in an address last month in Vancouver, said:
"That 80 per cent of the population of British Columbia was living
in 1 per cent of its area. The
reason for unemployment was that
there were too many mechanics,
carpenters and laborers to do the
work that had to be done. There
was no opportunity for them to
earn a livelihood in the city whereas there were millions, of acres of
laud in the country waiting for
their skill and labor to be made
productive. From thirty to forty
millions of dollars worth of foodstuff's was being brought into the
province from outside which could
be produced at home. In cheese
alone the B. C. production was not
10 percent of the amount consumed
in the province."
What the Premier said is no
doubt absolutely true, but what is
the use to put men on the land
when there are no means of transportation. Farming can not be
done with a pack saddle or a pack
horse, and until the government
builds the necessary roads, the
land will be idle. There has been
seventy quarter sections of land
filed on in the Ayiansh district,
and today there are only 14 or 15
living there, the remainder were
starved out after waiting years for
a road of some sort, to enable
them to get their produce out after
it was grown. If anyone cares to
stand on the wharf at Anyox when
the Vancouver boats are unloading,
they will see sacks of potatoes,
onions, carrots, and all kinds of
vegetables being unloaded, also
cases of eggs, quarters of beef, etc.
and tons of other things that could
be produced at their door. Nearly
all of this produce is grown in
southern B. C. and the remainder
is grown in the U. S. A. This
stuff has had in lots of cases a long
railroad journey to the coast, has
been handled and trucked half a
dozen times before being landed in
Anyox and has passed through
several hands, each getting a profit
from it. In fact, we go nearly a
thousand miles and sometimes more
to get supplies that could be grown
within less than 50 miles of Anyox
if a road was built by the government to enable the produce to be
brought out. People of Anyox
and Alice Arm, boost for a road
to Ayiansh and let's make the
north more self-supporting.
Ptarmigan Mine on Vancouver Island, Bonded
The Ptarmigan copper mine on the
west coast of Vancouver Island, which
came into prominence in 1912, when
the Earl of Denby bought it arid started work on a large scale, bringing out
a large number of English miners, has
been bonded for three months. It is
believed that the option has been
taken by the Consolidated Smelting
and Mining Co., which has been busy
lately picking up copper properties in
other parts of the province.
The Ptarmigan is at Big Interior
mountain, at the head of the Bead-
well River, and is reached through
Clayoquot. It joins the Big Interior
property which is on the eastern slope
looking down to Central Lake, and
which has been bonded by the Consolidated. Engineers from this corn,
pany were on the ground during 1919
and 1920. The Big Interior was locat
ed by Joe Drinkwater in 1899 and
examinations are said to have proved
it to be a surprising satisfactory
property.
Just before the war, the Earl of
Denby bought the aerial tramway
from the Tyee Company. When war
broke out, however, all the Englishmen threw down their tools at once,
deserted the mine and went to the
front.  The property was left deserted.
Why the Editor left Town
Somebody sent .the Editor of the
Silv(j£ City Star, a short time ago, a
few bottles of the famous A. A. home
brew.' The same day he received for
publication a wedding announcement,
and a notice of an ..auction sale from
Ayiansh.
Here are the results:
"Win. Smith andMiss Lucy Swift
were disposed of at public auction, at
my farm, one mile east of a beautiful
cluster of roses on her breast and two
white calves, before a background of
farm implements, too numerous to
mention, in the presence of about
seventy guests, including two milch
cows, three sows, and one bobsled.
Rev. Jackson tied the nupital knot
with 300 feet of hay rope, and the
bridal couple left on one good John
Dete gang plow, for an extended trip
with terms to suit purchasers. They
will be at home to their friends with
one good baby buggy and a few kitchen utensils after ten months from date
of sale to l-esponsible parties and some
fifty chickens."

Pacific Coast Coal Co.
Fined $500
The Pacific Coast Coal Company, of
Vancouver Island has been fined the
sum of $500 for non-payment of wages
in fortnightly periods, as prescribed
bylaw. Out of 300 claims tor wages
Mr. A. Leighton for the crown, chose
twenty for trial, and after hearing
evidence in three, it was agreed that
the balance should abide by the judgement rendered in these.
Mr. E. B, Ross, of Vancouver, acted for the defence and called Mr.
Muir, secretary of the company, to the
witness stand. After giving his
evidence, it was brought out, in cross-
examination, that at the time the
company suspended operations about
January 20 last, there was $19,000
worth of coal on hand. This coal was
subsequently sold, and the money
used to pay the salaries of the officials
of the company and an overdraft at
the bank.
It was intimated that an appeal
will, be taken, after the magistrate
had imposed a fine of $25 in each of
the twenty cases brought to trial.

THE ATLIN
CONSTITUENCY
Is the Largest in Province.
Comprising 58,000 Square
Miles
The Atlin Constituency is the
largest in British Columbia. It
consists of 58,000 square miles, and
comprises about one fifth of the
total area of the province. Its
most southerly point is at the
entrance of the Portland Canal,
about 25 miles south of the mouth
of the Naas River, and it stretches
northward to the borders of the
Yukon. The 60th. parallel being
the northern boundary and the
furtherest south being about 25
miles south of the 55th. parallel.
Mr. H. F. Kergin the local member of the legislature is now on a
tour of this vast territory. He left
Anyox'last Saturday and caught
the S. S. Prince George in the
early hours of Sunday morning at
the month of the Naas River, on
her way to Stewart. Returning
on the same boat to Prince Rupert,
lie caught the C. P. R. boat going
to Skagway, going in from there
over the White Pass and Yukon
Railway to Carcross, and then by
boat, south to the towns of Atlin,
Discovery, and numerous other
settlements, and from there on
horseback to Rainy Hollow. After
visiting the northernmost points
he intends to go up the Stikine
River by way of Wrangel, to Telegraph Creek and the Dease Lake
country, which will be done partly
by canoe and partly by horseback.
All the settlements on the different
routes will be visited, to allow the
pioneer residents of the northland
to get acquainted with their new
member, and put before him their
needs for the improvement of the
country.
That Bert will be assured a royal
welcome is a foregone conclusion,
as the pioneers of the north are
experts in that line. The Atlin
constituency is the hardest one in
the whole of British Columbia to
cover and when it is seen that no
proyision is made by the govern
ment for travelling expenses, it is
realized that representing a district
such as this is, is far harder on the
member than a nioe little compact
distriot down south, where the
local member can cover the whole
district in a day with his car.
Mr. Kergin expects to be away
four or five weeks, so that he will
be home only a few1 weeks before
the fall session commences in Vio
toria. \'b is a man's job represent'
ing the Atlin riding, but our
worthy member is equaj to the
ocoasion.
