Alice Arm Ore Exhibit
For Prince Rupert
A feature of the Prince Rupert
Exhibition, which will be held on
September 9 to 13, will be a big
ore exhibit. Samples of ore from
every district in northern and central B. C. will be on display. At
the conclusion of the exhibition,
the whole display will be turned
over to the Canadian National
Railways, who will make a permanent exhibit ofthe samples on
the wharf.
The samples will then be on
display for tourists, mining men
going north to Alaska, etc. and
will give them first-hand information of the mineral wealth of
northern B. C.
Alice Arm can not afford to
miss this grand opportunity of advertising her mineral wealth.
Several property owners have
already signified their willingness
to procure samples of ore, and it
is hoped that everyone will bring
in samples so that the exhibit will
be second to none.
At the present, no arrangements
have been made for shipping the
samples, but undoubtedly this
difficulty will be overcome next
week.
Alice Arm has the goods, why
not advertise them.?
The shipment must reach Prinoe
Rupert before August 31st.
The Fall rains are falling a trifle
early this year.
Anyox Baseball and
Football Gaines
Liberals Gain in Fort George
North Vancouver and  ti
Vancouver
Latest information reveals the
fact that the counting of the absentee votes has changed 3 seats.
Perry, liberal in Port George is
elected by a majority of 51. The
Liberal candidate in North Vanoouver has also been elected over
Hanes, Independent. Mary Ellen
Smith has also been elected in Vancouver, defeating General A. D.
McRae.
Every party leader has now
taken the count, a parallel of
which can not be found in the history of Canadian politics.
The present standing of the parties, are: Liberals, 24; Conservatives 16; Liberal Independents 2;
Labor 3; Provincial 3.
Bert Kergin increased his lead
by 33 votes by the absentee vote
count. Before the counting of the
vote his majority was 50, and it
now stands at 83.
Owing to irregularitie^made by
the Returning Officer, it is probab-'
le that a by-election will be held in
the Mackenzie riding.
Smelter Football Team Beats
Beach Eleven
In a well contested football
match Friday evening, the Smel
ter emerged victorious over the
Beach eleven by the score of three
goals to nil. The soore, however,
does not indicate the play, as the
Beaoh sharp-shooters had considerable tough luck around the
goal month.
Westwod notched the first
counter at the commencement of
hostilities, heading the ball in
from a. corner kick. R. Ingram
scored the second goal half-way
through the second half, on a pass
from the right wing. Robinson
found the net just before the final
whistle blew, with a beautiful shot
from the left wing. Ingram
handled the game in fine style.
Elks Defeat Mine
The Elks won from the Mine on
Monday evening, in a Weird ball
game, by the score of seven to five.
Both pitchers, Ferguson for the
-Mine and F. Fitzpatrick for the
Elks, were given poor support.
Archie Smith gave a very neat
demonstration of high diving,
when he took a header into the
creek while chasing Anderson's
long fly to left field.
The teams were: Elks, Greenwell, Campbell, Cody, F. Fit_-
patrick, Hall, Sheen, Mclntyre,
Smith, Thorley, Watson.
Mine: Lane, Ferguson, Anderson, O. Kirk, Halverson, Allen,
Dean, Lewis, Ployart.
Umpires W. Olsen and H. Wells.
The Elks have lost a valuable
player, in the person of Harry
Down. Harry left on Monday's
boat en-route to Ketchikan. He
has secured a position there and
will perform on the diamond for
the Ketchikan Elks.
Smelter Defeat Elks 3-1
Frances Fitzpatrick, the new
addition to the pitching staff of
the Elk's ball team, hooked up iu
a pitching dual with brother
Benny of the Smelter nine on
Thursday evening, last week.
After seven innings of good baseball the Smelter emerged the winners by three runs to one. The
Smelter made all three runs in the
first inning, on two free tiokets to
first, a sacrifice fly, two errors,
and one hit. The Elks lone tally
came in the fifth, when Fitzpatriok
walked, stole second, and scored on
two successive passed balls. The
best the Elks could do was three
hits off Benny, while the Smelter
made a similar amount off brother
Frances.
Benny struck out seven and
Frances nine.
Teams were: Smelter, Stewart,
Dowe,  Cole,  Wells,   MoDougall,

Arm Ball Players
Thrilling Game Witnessed
By Big Crowd
A real classy baseball game, in
fact one of the best Alice Arm has
witnessed for years, took place
last Sunday afternoon.
For fast plays, double plays,
triple plays, rooting, close decision,
this game made a record. The
crowd were on their feet throughout the nine innings, and sure got
their money's worth.
Anyox boys played to win but
were good sports, when they
went down to defeat by the score
of 10-9.
The best play of the day was a
triple play by the visitors. Alice
Arm had men on three bases, the
bater hit a line drive to short stop
who made a perfect catch, touched
the runner off second aud threw to
first aud put out the man running
to second. A clever piece of work
of Frances Fitzpatrick.
Dooley Dean played in his usual
good style, bringing in 3 runs.
For Alice Arm, all the team
played good ball; Anyox will have
to go some to !*oat them. Barney
Gray's home run was a real sensation, Sherman and Burmeister
as the battery were good.
Lee Intermela, the second baseman was brilliant, it was hard to
pick who was the best man of the
locals.
Jaok Hopper from Areola, Sask.
made a very partial Umpire.
The teams lined  up as follows:
Anyox: B. Fitzpatrick, Dean,
Swanson, B. Fitzpatrick, F. Fitzpatrick, Lazorek, Stubbs, Farnell,
Craggs.
Alice Arm: Sherman, Burmeister, T. W. Falconer, Intermela,
Warner, Gray, Bruggy, Smith,
Al Falconer.
Will Take Out Diamond Drill
Mr. L. Jesson, distriot manager
for Boyle Bros, diamond drill contractors of Spokane, arrived in
Alice Arm on Thursday. He left
the following day for the Dolly
Varden mine, iu order to take out
one of the drills stored there. The
drill will be shipped to Stewart on
Monday's boat. Mr. Jesson was
here in the early days of the camp
aud was busy renewing acquaintances.
An industrial undertaking, organized to instruct and please.
Let's go and see the District advertise itself. They say the band

Enjoyable Dance Held
At Alice Arm
One of the most enjoyable
dances held for a long time was
given at the Alice Arm Hotel pn
Wednesday evening.
A large number of people were
present, and a thoroughly good
time was spent, by all.
The Alice Arm orchestra excell-**
ed themselves with the music.
Mr. W. A. Dragan, as violinist is
an aquisition to the orchestra, and
his services were much appreciated.
The orchestra was composed of
Mrs. T. W. Falconer, piano; Mrs.
J. Laidlaw, saxophone; C. Hutchinson, clarinet; Messrs W. A.
Dragan, and Lome Falconer,
violins.
During the evening Miss Kathleen Bruggy danced the Butterfly

The supper was a marvel of the
culinary art and was supplied by
Mrs. Gus Anderson, of the Kitsault Cafe.

On one hand we hear that
plenty of money is available for
the development of good mining
properties, and then again there
are reports that money is hard to
get, that the small mining companies are going out of the field,
and the big companies are marking time. A number of mining
engineers will visit Alice Arm district during the summer. They
are on the lookout for likely looking properties, and if everything is
in their favor there is no doubt
that this summer will see some
properties bonded. Alice Arm
undoubtedly "has the goods,' and
it is time the country was developed. Further delay will result in
disaster to the prosperity of the
district.
One of the greatest handicaps
of those living in small towns such
as Alice Arm, is that we are too
far removed from medical and
dental assistance. This handicap
has, however, been somewhat overcome by the visit of Dr. Keeley
who spent a few weeks here, and
who expects to return again during
the latter part of next month.
A large number of Alice Arm
people availed themselves of the
opportunity of getting necessary
dental work done, and all found
Dr. Keeley to be an expert in his
line of business. His prices were
very moderate, and his work first-
class. During his visit to Alice
Arm the Doctor took a great interest in the welfare of the town,
and gave his wholehearted support to the Athletic Club Sports.
Those who omttted to get their
teeth examined during the late
visit of Dr. Keeley, will have an
opportunity next month. As there
is not enough business in town to
keep a dentist steadily employed,
the opportunity should not be
overlooked.
One of the most persistent advertisers in the history of success
was Robinson Crusoe. He knew
what he wanted, and he put up
an ad. for one. He flung a shirt
on a pole, at the top of his island,
that, in the language of the sea,
was plain to every sea- faring man.
The circulation was small-there
was no other medium, but Crusoe
kept at it, despite the fact that he
got no inquiries for a long time.
He changed his copy-as one
garment after another was frayed
out-and in the end got what he
wanted.
Suppose Crusoe had taken
down that signal after a time and
declared "Advertising doesn't pay,"
Where would he and his story be
now?
Put up your signal and keep it
there. Crusoe advertised under
very discouraging circumstances.
You've got a sure thing-it is only
necessary to have the patience,
persistence, and pluck of Robinson
Crusoe- and the good ship "Better
Business" will soon tie up 'long-
side your pier.
Big Fish Production for
Last Year
The value of production of the
fisheries of British Columbia in
1923. comprising fish marketed for
consumption fresh and canned,
cured or otherwise prepared, was
$20,808,729, an increase over the
previous year of ten per cent, and
an increase over the production of
1921 of 49 per cent. The inorease
over 1922 is due chiefly to the
halibut fishery, which in 1923
reached its highest value in the
history of the industry with a
total product valued at $6,271,993,
an increase over the previous year
of $2,353,552 or 60 per cent. The
salmon pack in 1923 totalled 1,-
341,677 cases, valued at $9,233,148
compared with 1,290,326, oases,
valued   at  $10,076,171    in   1922.

Engineer Mine Is Again
Before Courts
Claim of the brothers, Robert
E. Williams and Horace K. Williams, of Milwaukee and Los Angeles, to an interest in the Engineer
gold mine near Atlin, is to be
heard by a judge and not by a
jury, directed Mr. Justice D. A.
McDonald in Vancouver. His
lordship refused an application on
behalf of the plaintiff brothers for
a jury.
The claim is against the estate
of the late Captain James Alexander, who was drowned when
the Princess Sophia foundered in
1918 in Lynn Canal. With him
perished Abbie Alexander, whom
the Williams brothers say was
their sister and who, they allege,
was James Alexander's wife. The
brothers claim the estate which
their sister inherited from the
husband.
Premier Gold  Mining
Co. Pays Another Big
Dividend
Tlie Vancouver Merchants' Exchange give out the figure that the
port of Vancouver have handled
during the crop year to June 30,
52,805,578 bushels of all grades of
wheat, bulked and sacked. The
June shipments were 3,771,080
bushels.
Building permits for the City
of Vaucover for the half year to
June 30, were $4,137,261. This is
an increase of nearly 100% over the
corresponding period of 1923. In
this figure, however, are large
permits taken out by Spillers
elevator and Vancouver Gas Company.
Another four hundred thousand
dollars iu dividends was distributed by the Premier Gold Mining
Company on July 3. This will
bring tlie total amount this great
British Columbia mine has paid in
dividends up to $5,800,000.
The first dividend of $400,000
was paid on December 31, 1921.
Since that date the company has
not missed any quarter. Reports
from the mine, which is situated

GRAIN FED CATTLE FOR EASTERN MARKET
A splendid load ot winter fed cattle sorted up froml
SINCE the first of May a very
fine lot of cattle have been
passing through the stockyards at Winnipeg. These show
the result of intensive feeding they
received during the winter, and the
large number of cattle recently
coining forward indicate that Western farmers have greatly enlarged
their winter feeding operations
over what prevailed two or three
years ago. In order to encourage
this business the railways last fall
reduced the freight rates on feeder
cattle taken out from the stockyards to the country to one-half the
regular rates, and the co-operative
cattle pool announced that no com
mission would be charged farmers
purchasing such cattle from tbe
pool. Many of the good cattle recently received at the yards were
purchased by farmers last fall in
uniform loads carefully sorted up
by the pool, and shipped out under
the reduced railway rates. Winter
feeding operations have on the
whole made a very satisfactory return to a large number of farmers,
and cattle purchased at from four
to four and a half cents a pound
have been resold this spring at
from six and a half to seven cents
a pound, or occasionally more,
after making a gain  in weight
often   averaging   two   hundred
pounds or more.
Many western cattle are now
moving east, both to packing
plants, for export to Great Britain,
and to Ontario farms for further
intensive feeding. Many loads of
pool cattle are consigned direct to
farmers in Ontario who have placed
orders for them. To get these cattle to destination in the quickest
possible time and to avoid as far as
possible shrinkage losses in transit,
the Canadian National Railways
operate a special fast through
cattle train daily from Winnipeg to
the east, and cattle for this movement are loaded up each evening
about seven o'clock.

Alaska Premier Up For
Sale
Portland Canal Newt
Having advanced money from
time to time to the amount of
approximately $20,000 to the Alaska Premier Mining Co. and
being unable to collect, B. Guggenheim of New York entered suit
and obtained judgement, which
was executed yesterday. Deputy
Marshal McDonald of Hyder has
posted notices that the property
will be sold July 30.
In the event of the property
being bid in by Mr. Guggenheim,
it is reported to be his intention to
put into effect an extensive development programme as soon as possible.
The Alaska Premier consists of
some 20 claims, situated on the
oast side of Salmon river about ten
, miles from Hyder and within the
borders of Alaska. A good camp
has been constructed and considerable work done, showing up what
is reported1 to be a very interesting and promising mineralization,
carrying several shoots of high-
grade ore.
It was in connection with the
Alaska Premier that Mr. Guggenheim visited the district during
the week end.
Driving Tunnel on Old
Eureka Property *
A contract to drive the ancient
tunnel of the lost Eureka mine,
near Hope, another 450 feet, has
been let to William Irwin, formerly the foreman at the Premier
mine. T^he' old tunnel was 190
feet in length. The Irwin crew
is how driving in a full face of ore
which assays on the average forty-
five ounces in silver and about $5
in gold to the ton.
Completion of the Irwin contract will give an estimated depth
of 400 feet. Mr. Roy Clothier,
recently in charge of the Indian
mine at Stewart, is superintendent
of development work.

Magnificent Specimen of Moose Head
THIS record moose head from
an animal shot in Northern
Ontario has been secured by
the Canadian National Railways to
be placed in their building at the
British Empire Exhibition in London. The head has been specially
mounted for display and is one of
the finest specimens ever secured.*
As far as is1 known only two larger
moose heads have ever been secured and one of these was presented to the late King Edward
VII. by Canadian sportsmen.
The particulars of the head
shown in the photograph are interesting. The spread of the antlers
is 70 „ inches from tip to tip. The
weight of the antlers, before
mounting, was 64 pounds. The
length of the right antler from the
base of horn to the tip is 37%
inches and that of the left antler
39 inches. The width of the left
palm at the widest point is 15
inches and that of the right 14M
inches.      The points total 28 in
number, there being 14 on each
antler. The weight of the animal
was 1,400 pounds.
Before being shipped to England
tlie head will be displayed in the
windows of ticket offices of the
Canadian National Railways in
various cities. It is now on exhibition at the ticket office at the
northwest corner of King and
Yonge Sts., Toronto, where it is
attracting much attention and comment.
