Crowds of Anyox People
Visit Alice Arm
Big Dance by Moose Held in
Alice Arm Hotel
The record crowd from Anyox,
the brilliant weather prevailing,
aud the contagious feBtive spirit
all combined to make the May 24th
celebration one of the most successful in the history of the oamp.
Visitors from Anyox commenced
| to arrive on Saturday evening, and
were supplemented by a continual
stream until Monday morning. A
considearble number also spent the
holiday at Silver City, and the
highways and byeways of the distriot were thoroughly explored by
the visitors, who delight to revel
amidst the greenery, which is so
captivating to those who live in the
smelter town.
A large number of officers and
members of Anyox Lodge No. 1412
Loyal Order of Moose, arrived on
I Saturday evening.      Included in
the party was the celebrated Moose
orchestra of six pieces, and a dance
was held in the Alice Arm  Hotel
the same evening.
In regard to the large number
( present,   the. excellence of music,
and the satisfactory arrangements
1 made by the management of the
I hotel, this dance was easily one of
. the most  enjoyable held in   the
| famous hostelry for a long time.
In addition to the large number
I who thronged the hotel   were a
1 large number of Alice Arm people.
Space on the dancing floor was
taxed to the limit, and the orchestra were given no rest, one dance
followed the other iu rapid succession.
I     Rounds of applause rewarded the
efforts of the musicians and numerous encores were demanded, and
freely given.   But even the most
skilful have their limit, and finally
1 the strains of "Show me the way
to go home." and "Goodbye ladies"
| floated on the air.    These were
follwowed by the Home   Waltz,
aud a most enjoyable evening was
brought all quickly to a close by
those present.
As entertainers the Moose made
a name for themselves on Saturday
and their excellent arrangements
showed that they are without a
peer iu this respeot, and in providing amusement and recreation
they are second to none.
Tlie orchestra, to whom is due in
a large proportion the unexcelled
evening's enjoyment were composed
of J. T. Webster, piano; J. J. H.
Varnes, slide trombone; F. Jeffreys
oomet; B. Brooks, violin; H. Ward
clarinet; 0. J. Hutchings, drums.
A large number of the Moose
Iwere accompanied by their wives
land lady friends, and the following
|day was spent in exploring and
lathering wild flowers that grow
|in suoh profusion.
(Those who have visited Alice
Arm on former occasions made no
attempt to conceal their pleasure
at being back again, and those to
■whom this was the first visit are
■planning for another visit before
T;he summer is past. Everyone enjoyed themselves, and   all   were
First Oddfellows Public
Dance is Huge Success
The olimax to the Empire Day
celebration in Anyox was .fittingly
observed—as is the usual custom—
by a big danoe in the Recreation
Hall. Formerly staged by the
Elks., and other organizations,
this year the affair was put on by
the looal lodge I. 0. 0. F., it being
their first public dance. The hall
decorations were symbolic of the
Order, arranged in simple and
artistic effect, the whole blending
with a suggestion of Empire Day
by means of a huge flag draped
across'the stage curtain.
A pleasing effect, especially
around the orchestra seats, were
the shaded lights, the decoration
motif in the hall showing to full
advantage during the "moonlight"
dances. Music for the dance was
furnished by the Melodians, that
constantly improving orchestra
from up on the hill. The boys en
joyed the pleasure of a familiar face
among them Monday, with Ed.
Waterman on the drums.
Encores were the rule through
the evening, and many new dance
numbers were introduced to tho
Anyox public by the musicians, to
whom a great compliment was paid
when a request for an extension of
time was made, ' Valencia" "Out
Yonder" "I Do!" Til tell you about
my Sweetie" were sure fine hits
among the new dance tunes; and of
the old familiar melodies, "Moonlight and Roses" was played by
special request.
The programme was ran off
smoothly and exactly to schedule.
Following the supper intermisipn,
a "lucky card" dance provided a
novelty, Mrs. Jack Evans became a
prize winner. To Mr. Geo. Hunter
fell the honor of holding the lucky
admission ticket, and gathering the
prize awarded.
Altogether a happy night—and
morning—enjoyed by a gathering,
that filled the huge hall to capacity.
The committee in charge of the
affair were Messrs. Murdoch, Sanderson, Boyd, Wilson, Roberts,
Deeming and Stewart.

Alice Arm Victorious in
Baseball Game
Following the childrens' sports
at Alice Arm on Monday a star
baseball game was played between
the giants of the bat and ball of
Anyox and Alice Arm.
It was a game of thrills, expeota
tions, disappointments, and weird
plays, Both teams cut loose with
everything they had to win and at
the end of a five-inning game Alice
Arm emerged victorious by the
score 4-3.
T. W. Falooner twirled for the
home team, and Cris Cane delivered the pill for the visitors, and a
sugar coated pill at that. George
Bruggy filled his usual position as
catcher, and Len Staines was the
hope of Anyox in a similar capacity
It was anybody's game right up
to the end, but to avoid au argument, Alioe Arm clipped over a
run iu the last inning and dashed
the hopes of the visitors, who deserved to win considering the high
calibre of their team.
While the game did not particularly bristle with spectacular plays,
it was intensely interesting. Both
teams suffered laok of praotice, but
the next time Cris Cane trots out
his warriors he intends to reverse
the decision. Chris undoubtedly
saved his team from a much heavier defeat by his tricky pitching
and he also slings a mean bat.
Teams: Anyox, Cane, p. Staines
c. Mitohell, Buntain, Copestake,
Clay, Dwyer, Bell, Pottinger.
Alice Arm: T. W. Falconer, p.
Bruggy, c. Kergin, Al. Falconer,

Rupert where she has resided since

Empire Day Sports'
H.   M.  SELFE
Not every boom oamp has become ft permanent mineral producer
the "conservative investor" will
remind you. Certainly not. Not
every farm has been worked to this
day; not every factory has stayed
in business; not every store has
made money for its proprietor; not
every lawyer has found a demand
for his services; not every bank
has operated at a profit; not every
newspaper has achieved success;
and here and there are rusty
■ streaks which once were railroads,
not all of them in the mining regions either.
How about some of these mining
booms that "oxploded" as the
investment banker puts it? Isn't
the world better for their having
occurred? Didn't they add to the
world's mineral wealth? And in
many camps are there not permanent camps still operating, although
on a smaller scale.—Mining Truth
The best way to build up a town
is to stand by every man in the
town who does right. Whenever
a man is doing well, do not seek to
trip him. All the>esidents should
be partners in the community's
interests,not opponents. The more
business your rival does, the more
you will do. Every business man
who treats his customers honestly,
courteously and fairly will get his
share, and the more business that
can be secured by unlimited efforts
the better it will be for all. Stand
together for the advancement of
every citizen. If a man shows
ability to prosper do not pull him
back through a cold indifference.
A lion met a tiger.
As they drank beside a pool.
Said the tiger, "Tell me why
Yon're roaring like a fool?"
"That's not foolish," said the lion,
With a twinkle in his eyes.
They call me king of all the beasts
Because I advertise."
A rabbit heard them talking
And ran home like a streak.
He thought he'd try the lion's plan
But his roar was a squeak.
A fox came to investigate—
Had luncheon in the woods,
So when you advertise, my friends
Be sure you've got the goods.
On Monday afternoon the usual
Empire Day sports for the children
were carried out. They were held
ou the ball grounds and a large
number of interested adults were
present to watch the youthful
athletes compete for the prizes.
The exhibition given clearly
showed that the children of Alice
Arm are as virile, active and fleet
of foot as any aggregation in the
Dominion. A large number of close
finishes were recorded, which demanded extreme vigilance on the
part of the judges.
Everyone received a prize, and
the happy expression of the children; the beautiful shining sun;
the odoriferous breeze blowing in
from the broad expanse of the
Pacific, and the dazzling white
capped mountains on all sides, created a scene fit for the brush of
some master painter. It was a
scene of animation, of both children
and nature.
Following are the prize winners:
1. Girls and boys, 4 years and
under. 1 Jackie Auderson, 2 Peggy
2. Girls 6 and under, 1 Leah
Kergin, 2 Joan Trinder.

at Anyox With a Win
for Smelter
With Mr. W. R. Lindsay throw
ing the first ball and the Anyox
Brass Band in attendance, the
Anyox Baseball League staged the
opening game on Thursday May
20th. The'smelter and Elks w.ere
the contestants, with victory going
to the former by a 13 to 6 score
Beaulieu did the hurling for the
winners, and while he was touched
for ten safeties he managed to keep
them well scattered. Ballantyne
was on the mound for the losers.
Although he was wild at times, it
was the wretched support accorded
him by his teammates which lost
him tlie game. Walter Oleson was
the umpire at the plate. Tom
Mcintosh called them on the bases.

Mine Footballers Win
from Beach 1-0
The Mine football eleven won
from the Beach on Friday evening,
one goal to nil. Parker scored the
lone tally early in the first half, on
a nice cross from Bolby Orr. Superb work in goal by Hunter kept
the score as low as it was. The
losers had several opportunities
but were very weak in their shooting. Les Lane was out for the
miners, and turned in a nice game
at outside left. The Beach show
improvement over their last appearance. Thortennson who made his
debut at centre half for the Beach-
ites, turned in a good game, with
the exception that he has a .tend-
I ency to dribble the ball too much.

R. K. Neil, W. J. C. Wakefield,
Raymaud Guyer and associates to
operate, a consolidation of three
groups of mining claims, 508 acres*
43 miles from Mazatlan, on the
west coast of Mexico. Examination of the group has been going on
for a year, and the U. "S. Department of Commerce states that
$500,000 has been spent in development. The veins are quartz fissures, one to 12 feet wide, of workable silver ore with lenses of galena
and spots of high-grade galena,
with varying amounts on gold.
Sit thousand feet of work has been
done. The shipping ore is said to

silver and $2.60 gold, the mill feed
20 ounces silver and $1 or more in
gold, the lead having been extracted before by cyanide treatment.

Smelter Footballers Win
Again 4-1
The Smelter proved far too strong
for the Mine football eleven on
Tuesday evening, finishing on the
long end of a 4 to 1 score. Weakness on the attack was the biggest
fault of the losers. The winners
scored twice in each half, the first
one coming from a scramble in
front of the goal, the second was
headed in by Hunter. Buntain
notched the third and Powell the
last. The winners displayed some
fine combination, passing out to
the wings nicely. Bill Robertson
refereed in fine style.

Mine Win from Smelter
The Mine ball club turned in a
win for their initial appearance,
when they defeated the Smelter l
7 runs to 6. It was an exciting
game throughout and productive
of some very good baseball. The
muckers introduced their new
pitcher to the fans, although he
was a bit wild at times and was
nicked for nine hits, he pitched
himself out of several tight places,
accounting for 13 via the strike out
route. Bruce was the vnoundsmau
for the Smelter, and the big boy
seems to be staging a comeback.
He pitched superb ball up until the
fifth inning,  when he weakened.
Six runs orossed the plate as a
result of 4 hits, two walks and an
The losers made a strong bid for
the game in the final session, when
three bingles and an error gave
them three counters, just one shy
of tieing the score.
