Noted Geologist
Report of the
Bellevue Mine
Mr. J. F. Crossland, the celebrated geologist of Vancouver, who returned from the Bellevue Mine, on
the Illiance , River, on Saturday
last, reports that the Bellevue mine
is a promising looking property,
and warrants some further exploration work. Future development
will be done on the lower claim,
where there are good showings,
and the formation is more settled
than higher up where all previous
work has been done. The showing
on the lower claim has been traced
for 60 feet and is 30 feet wide, dipping into the hill at' an angle of 70
degrees, and a tunnel will be driven
close to the river to strike the ore
at depth.
The development work at the
present time consists of a tunnel
230 feet in length, and two drifts
leading from the main tunnel, one
being 38 feet and the other 30 feet,
with two short crosscuts at the
head of the drifts, about 12 feet mi
length.
Mr. Crossland made an extensive
examination of the entire country,
being up as far as the Glacier View
where he examined some high
grade leads, which will some day
prove very profitable when roaijs
and trails are built in.
His examination has proved that
the ore occurs in quartzite, which
is cut by diorite dykes and intrusive dykes of porphrhy all through
the country. The mineral belt is
roughly four miles long and one
mile wide, running north and south,
and is out off on the east by Argill-
ite, and on the north-west by
Tertiery flows of Rhyolite. Some
very rioh specimens of float are
being continually pioked- up over
the entire zone, proving that, rioh
leads exist, waiting to be found.
Mr. Crossland is very enthusiastic with the work done by Mr.
A. J. Hughes, who has charge of
the operations, and states that
great eredit is due to him for the
manner in which he has established
camps and conduoted the work,
under the difficult conditions which
the Illiance River section of the
country presents,

The Cavemen came off ahead
with the score somewhere about 25!
to 30, but they were not carrying
so many years in age or so many
pounds in weight as the Dreadnoughts.
John McGraw Hageman is some
pitcher and batter, and the way he
cantered round the bases won the
hearts of all. ,
Charlie Wing; on first base was
a wonder, he did not let many slip
by.
Dillon ought to step in and pitch
a few for the gas eaters. Sam
Down and Parsons are some base i
runners. Charlie Gray says the
surfaoe of the ground is too far
from his belt line. The little round
thing always got past his feet
before he got down to it.
The batters would never bat the
ball into Bill Hoffman,s mitt.
They always passed over his shoulder or under his armpit.
Harry Chapman sat down on a
base runner, and stayed there until
he pulled an extra ball out of his
pocket to tag his man with.
Pretty tricky i Harry, but the
umpo had his eagle eye on you. It
did not work.

Wetmore is the finished article
as a catcher, but oh my poor hands.
They were all good batters on
both sides, as the soores show, but
the cavemen took a mean advantage, they had a ' Hatt" on the
field that never failed to catch anything that oame his way.
The mine team have a second
baseman in Tuttle. Nord as a
Catcher is also worth watching.
Nelson and Campbell are fast on
base running and the -whole team
are strong at bat. Sixteen runs at
one innings is going some.
Both the spectators and the
players enjoyed the game, and
everyone had a real good time.

THE MAN AROUND
T0WN:
The Elks and the smelter played'
a good game of football, on Wednesday, the Elks winning 3-0.
There was no game on Thursday, on account of the rain.
On Friday night the mine and
the smelter played football. The
mine bringing home the bacon.
Score 3-1. Brown was apparently
the only man on the job for the
smelter. His playing was good
but he had no support from his
team mates. The mine played a
good consistent game all through;
their passing being the feature of
the game. Their half back will
bear watching. He is a little bit
the best we have seen in Anyox for
a long time. The Elks will have
to look out for their next game.
On Saturday, the Pioneers of
the beach, played a game of baseball with the Pioneer Dreadnoughts
of the mine. The game was sensational from start to finish. Our
General Manager umpired . the
game, with Dr. Borsdale on the
base lines. Hageman .and Dillon
pitched for the beach, with Wade
Wetmore as catcher.
The mine pitchers were Gigot
and Glen Rash with Max Nord
behind the bat.
John Hageman's deliveries were
a marvel, whilst Dillon's spit ball
put Emile Loeske's well in the
shade. Gigot was hit all over the
lot (at times,) but it took Glen
Rash to break down John's pioneers. Charlie Wing on 1st, base
surprised everyone. You're there
Charlie. Poor Chapman on 3rd.
base got some;of his own medicine
back from Sherman and his supporters; but his playing was so
sensational that the mine have
turned down "Hard Winter" and
signed Harry on' instead. Charlie
Gray was good at short stop. He
stopped everything after it had
gone by him. Apart from that his
playing wqs air tight. Tuttle for
the mine made the best hit of the
game, while Max Nord behind the
bat woidd put riiany a younger
man to shame. The score finally
ended 30 to 25 against the beach,
and the mine carried away the loving cup. presented by the store.
But this is not the end of it all.
There is to be another game, and
then—
On Sunday, the Elks and smelter played the tie off game at baseball, the Elks winning 7-3. Draudson and Downs pitched for the
Elks and Fitzpatrick and Fitzpatrick for the smelter. We have a
witty friend from the mine, who
roots at all the games. He is a
real commedian and is good medicine for anyone with the blues.

Alice Arm as a
Railroad Terminus.
Now that the reserves on coal
lands has been lifted by the Government, interest is again being
taken by eastern capitalists in the
extensive coal lands of the Groundhog country, laying to the north of
us. It is certain that a railroad
will be built to tidewater, sometime in the future, to transport the
coal, and it is very probable that
Alice Arm may be selected as the
terminus. We have 18 miles of
railroad already built, and in operation, from tidewater to the Dolly
Varden mine; two more miles graded, and five miles more of easy
grading to be completed to carry
it to the Kitsault Glacier. From
there across to the Naas River is
only a distance of about 20 miles,
the railroad would then follow the
Naas River right into the Groundhog coal fields, making an easy
water grade all through, except for
the few miles between the Kitsault
and Naas Rivers. Survey lines
will probably be run to various
other points on the coast, but there
is no doubt that if a survey line is
run from Alice Arm to the
Groundhog coal fields, that Alice
Arm will be the terminus chosen.
We have five miles of water-
frontage on each side of the bay,
with a depth of water capable of
berthing the largest vessel afloat,
and we have one of the finest landlocked harbors in the world. It is
up to the citizens of Alice Arm to
place the advantages of this town
and harbor before the Railroad
Co., when survey lines are being
run. The town of Alice Arm
will then have an equal chance
with any port on the coast, and if
this route is the cheapest to construct, and the most easily operated
we shall have the terminus here.
If we want anything we have got
to go after it, if we don't want the
town to grow, all we have to do is
to let our chances slide, and some
other more progressive town will
reap the benefit.
Another thing to bear in mind
is that the oil of the vast interior
has got to have an outlet to the
coast at some future date. Oil is
being struck at several points in the
interior, and in a short time pipe
lines will be built to bring the oil
to the coast.   As we stated above;
we have at least 10 miles of water-
frontage, and there is ample ground
behind it to build coal bunkers,
oil tanks and refineries to hold all
the coal and oil in Canada. It is
up to us to get busy. A community is exactly like an individual, if
we don't work, we don't get
anything.
The Silver Outlook.
The Mining and Engineering
Record of Vancouver, in commenting on the outlook for silver says
that the outlook is not very satisfactory, and it is probable that the
price will remain around 60c.
The American Government has
already bought up a third of the
silver under the Pittman Act, for
which the treasury was authorised
to pay $1.00 per oz. The other
two thirds will be used up within
the current year, when the Pitt-
man Act will automatically cease
to operated There is, however, a
possibility the Act may not be exercised to the limit, as there is an
active demand in the east for its
repeal, on the very reasonable
ground that the United States
Treasury should buy its silver at
the market value in the same way
as any other purchaser. The Pitt-
man Act has helped the silver
market by keeping American silver
from competition with the production of the rest of the world, and
when American silver has to be
sold in the outside bullion market
it will have a weakening effect on
the price. The London price of
silver rules I lie world, and that
price is mainly based on the demand from India. That demand
has been lessened by the recent
treasury orders which have had the
effect of placing India on a gold
basis; and by the government order
that public payments be made in
bank paper instead of bullion or
silver coinage. China is said to be
a seller of silver rather than a
buyer. On the other hand the
arrangements being made for the
establishment of a mint of large
coinage capacity in China will era
ate a new market which will
probably absorb the present surplus, and again make China a
buyer of silver.
The gross value of the mineral
production of the province for the
year 1920, was $35,543,084, an in.
crease over that of the preceding
year of $2,246,771, or equivalent to
an increase of about 7 per cent.
It is extremely gratifying that
British Columbia's mining industry has been so well maintained,
notwithstanding the fluctuating
metal market, and despite generally
unsettled conditions.
Work on the Premier tramline at
Stewart, is being pushed with all
possible speed with the expectation
of having it completed before,ihe
first snow of next winter] One
hundred and forty men are now on
the job. The ordinary towers
between the wharf and Fish creek,
a distance of about 5 miles, are all
up, and the double tension station
No. .1, the double anchor station
No. 1, and the Fish creek' angle
station, are practically completed.
The Fish creek station contains
between 30,000 and 40,000 feet of
timber. Work of blasting out the
foundation for the angle station on
the hill above M. R. Jamieson's
residence is now in progress.
Seventy ore buckets have been
delivered at the mine, and a quantity of the tram cable has been
laid on the right of way.
Work going on at the
Homestake Mine
Work is progressing very satisfactorily at the Homestake mine,
situated at the Kitsault glacier.
All supplies have been freighted in,
and the camps built. The tunnel
has been faced-up, and hand drilling will probably be used until the
compressor plant is installed.

DOLLY VARDEN
MINE SHIPPING ORE
The high grade ore of the Dolly
Varden Mine is now rolling down
to the ore blinker* on. the wharf
in a continual stream. Only one
train is being used at present,
making a trip every other day.
The ore now coming down is some
of the finest shipped from the mine.
320 tons were shipped to Anyox
smelter last Saturday, and 700
cases of powder for the Granby
Co. at Anyox were also shipped on
the same scow. There are now
500 cases of powder left at the
mine, which will be sufficient to
carry on development work until
next spring.
Some stripping work on the
leads above the present workings
at the Dolly Varden Mine, is being
carried on.
This is the time when the mining
business is dull, for investors and
operators to get in and secure new
properties, and to .carry on their
development in readiness for the
good times ooming. The mining
industry is in for the most prosperous years in (its history, and
those who are ready to take advantage of it will reap the reward of
their foresight and enterprise.—

FIRE AT HYDER
WIPES OUT THE
BEACH HOTEL
Just after the Herald was off the
press last Saturday morning, word
was received in Alice Arm that
the Beach Hotel at Hyder was
completely gutted by fire in the
early hours of Saturday morning,
shortly after midnight and that
one man had lost his life.
The outbreak of fire was discovered shortly after midnight in the
upper storey of the hotel. The
Haines spread rapidly and a man
named Fred Card was apparently
unable to escape, for his oharred
remains were later discovered
among the debris The building
was completely gutted and total
disaster to the remaining part of
the town was avoided by the free
use of dynamite in destroying the
small buildings adjoining.
The Beaoh Hotel is owned by
Mr. Lindsay.

Continued from page 1.
Keep it up old boy, you are the
best yet. Waterman and Salmon
umpired the game.
On Monday, the Smelter and
Elks played their regular schedule
game. The Elks again winning
5 to 1. Jack Cody pitched for the
Elks, and Loeske the spit ball
artist for the smelter. His spit
balls were helpless at the hands of
the Elks however, and he was
knocked all over the lot. Bagwell
hit a three bagger but was called
out. We think' the umpire made
a grave error that time. There
was far too much crabbing" over
the game. It should be stopped
for it is needless altogether. Up
till now this series has been going
fine. Why not keep up she good
work, '
The Elks Lodge held their usual
meeting, on Monday evening, and
are making great preparations for
the kiddies on August 3rd. It is
to be a day long remembered by
them all. So don't forget Elks
and boost with all your might.
The Amur came into port on
July 25th. with a full cargo.
The baseball clubs, under the A.
C. L. are bringing in a baseball
partyfrom Jasper Parle, Alberta,
for three days; namely, August 1st,
2nd, and 3rd, winding up with
a big dance with the visitors as
their guests. Get behind it all and
let us show Alberta what kind of
ball our boys, in Northern B. C.
can turn out. Haverty and Jimmy
Ferguson are to pick th<y all star
team from here to play against the
visitors. Much responsibility rests
upon their shoulders, but thoy
should be equal to the occasion.
We hear that Pete Draudson has
been christened Napoleon by the
fans of the fair sex. He certainly
knows how to out-general the other
teams out of the lions share of the
games.
Cecil Parmitter came in on the
Union boat. We never saw him
look better, and he reports having
a dandy time while in Vancouver.
He is single though.

Anyox, desire to express their app»
reciation of the kindness shown
them by • the : residents of Alice

them the improssion that the citizens of the coming city of the
north have adopted the slogan of
some of the cities of the middle
west—"Treat 'em right."
We had a good time and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, and every
one of us returns to the smelter
town a confirmed booster for Alice
Arm, as one of the beauty spots of
the north.
We wish to tender our best
thanks to the following:
Miss B. Crawford, who was kind
enough to invite us out to dinner.
Oh boy, but that was some short
cake and strawberries. Mrs. H.
Carney, who visited, the camp
pretty often and never came empty
handed. Mrs. F. D. Rice, Mrs. G.
Matheson, Miss M. Stanley, and
Mr. W. Cummings, of Alice Arm.
Mr. and Mrs. Walter Corbett, Mrs.
G Round, Messrs. Beokett and
