The North Star Mine makes
another Shipment to Smelter
On Tuesday last the North Star
mine made a shipment of approximately 90 tons of ore which was
mined last winter. Owing to tjio
trail giving out it was too. expensive to haul, and the balance of the
ore mined, amounting to about 60
tons was left in the bunker at the
mine, Considerable ruby silver
and some native silver showed in
this shipment, and the returns
should be fairly high.- The last
shipment gave returns of 37.4 ozs.
per ton, and this ore looks of much
higher grade.
The development work done at
the mine during the winter proved
the existence of a considerable body
of ore at the 90ft. level. This ore
body which is 60 feet in length
and averages over 5 feet in width,
averages over 50 ozs. silver per ton.
The ore shows considerable native
and ruby silver, and some argentite
and Stepbanite. The lower tunnel
was exf .<»A a distanoe of 70 feet,
the face of the tunnel being now
180 feet from the portal. A crosscut was driven 16 feet towards the
foot-wall, but did not reach it, this
cross-cut shows the ledge to be at
least 24 feet wide. A stope on the
ore was driven 26 feet from which
" most of this shipment was mined.
A winze sunk on the ore for 10 feet
furnishing the balance of the ore.
The stope and winze show the ore
body to be at least 36 feet in
depth and 60 feet in length, from
which it is estimated 500 tons of
ore of 50 ozs. grade can be mined
at least.
This property is one of the most
promising in the district, and no
doubt will develop into one of the
best shippers of Alice Arm.
The work done, so far, on the
ledge, proves that it extends for a
distance on the surface of 1100 feet.
At an elevation of 1650 feet a tunnel has been driven a distance of
40 feet, showing some very fine
ore. The depth obtained here is
about 35 feet, and the width of the
ore being over 8 feet. Some surface stripping exposes the ledge for
200 feet to the point where the
lower tunnel is driven. Below this
tunnel several open cuts expose the
ledge to within 100 feet of the line
between the North Star and the
Toric Group. A short tunnel is
driven on the ledge at an elevation
of about 100 feet 'below the lower
workings. This is the original
tunnel driven by the locators of the
claim, and some fairly good ore is
exposed,   ii.
There is a compressor on the
property, good camps, etc., and it
is hoped that development work
will be resumed at an early date.
The North Star is under option
to Mr. J. McAleenan and Mr. J.
Zarelli. The property adjoins the
Dolly Varden on the north, and
the Dolly Varden workings are
within 750 feet of the workings of
the North Star. The ledges are of
the same character and the ore
exactly similar, so it is reasonable
to assume that the Dolly Varden
and. North Star ledges are one
ledge. Since high-grade ore has
been found on the Toric it would
appear that a similar strike is quite
possible on the North Star, as the
Toric ledge can be traced across
the Kitsault River, striking in line
with the North Star ledge. Some
surface stripping is contemplated
with this end hi view.

Mr. John Conway
appointed Government
Agent for Anyox
Mr. John Conway, who has been
Acting Government Agent at
Anyox for some months, has now
been appointed permanent Government Agent of that town, as 'well
as district registrar of deaths,
births and marriages, for the Naas
River division, registrar under the
Marriage Act for the Naas district,
and Mining Recorder for Naas.
Mr. Conway is a real old-timer
of the north. He was Deputy
Mining Recorder in Stewart, in.
1904-5-6. He left Stewart in 1906,
and was in the government offices
at Port Simpson and Prince Rupert
until July, 1910, when he returned
to Stewart as Government Agent,
and was made stipendary magistrate in the fall of the same year.
On leaving Stewart, he was
appointed assistant Government
Agent to Mr. J. M. McMullin of
Prince Rupert, and held that office
until he'came to Anyox, in the fall
oJ 1920.
He is without doiibt the most
popular Government Agent in the
north, always courteous and obliging, and, johnny-on-the-spot with
any information that is required by
anyone, and is known by every
prospector in the country as a real
Good Leads of Ore
on Roundy and
Copper Creeks
Mr. Gib Morley brought in some
good looking specimens of steel
galena ore, from the Cracker Jack
Group, on Roundy Creek, this
week. He states the lead is 12
feet wide, and can be traced on the
surface for   eight claim   lengths.
Several open cuts have been
made on the lead showing solid ore.
Mr. Morley is now doing further
work on stripping the lead.
Work will also be done on the
Black Diamond Group at Copper
Creek, on the Illiance River, where
Mr. Morley and Al. Clary have a
lead of ore 76 feet wide, and has
been traced on the surface for four
claim lengths. A tunnel has been
started to strike the ore at a depth
of 75 feet, and work will be continued during the coming winter.
The last game of the baseball
league was played by the mine and

Anyox to Vote on the
.  New Wage Scale Today
Today, August 27th, will decide
whether the big smelter and mines
of Anyox will continue to operate
or not. A vote will be taken by
means of a secret ballot, to see if
the employees of the Granby Co.
,are willing to take a cut in wages
and keep working, or whether they
are in favor of rejecting a cut and
thereby closing down the plant.
It is a serious matter for everyone, if the cut in wages is voted
against, it means that 1150 more
men will be thrown on ari already
over-crowded labor market, making
it far worse for the men already
out of employment, and aggravating the unemployment pi-oblem of
the province to a large degree.
Already the government and the
municipalities are grappling with
the unemployment problem, and
devising ways and means to alleviate suffering during the coming
winter. When threshing on the
pra1ri'e"ceas'es next month," 'thousands of more men, will be thrown
out of employment and a large percentage will find their way to the
coast. \
While the wages offered by the
Granby Co. are small compared
with wages since .the spring of
1916, yet they are a little above
the pre-war scale, and1 will provide
a living for a man—and his family
if he is married—this coming
We hold no brief for the Granby
Co., but we will say this: that a
man will be lucky to have a good
roof over his head, and enough to
eat and keep him warm this coming winter.
We are, all of us, helpless to
change the world wide depression,
and we have therefore got to make
the best of it, and probably will
endure some hardships, before conditions again right themselves.
The management of the Granby
Company has shown wisdom in
letting their employees vote on a
cut, and it is entirely up to them
whether the plant operates after
tlie 1st. of September or not.
The company has issued a new
sliding wage scale, from which a
few different classes of labor are
extracted. When copper is under
14 ceuts per lb., as it is at present,
the wages are: Miners, $4.00; Muc-
kers^$3.70; Blasters,-$4.50; Tim-
bermen, $4.00; All first-class metal
Craftsmen, $4.75; Carpenters, $4.75
Painters, $4,25; Laborers, $3.15;
Locomotive Engineers, $4.00; Bra-
kemen, $3.70; Teamsters, $3.55;
Electricians, $4.75. Board at the
Mess House will be $1.00 per day.
House Rents will be reduced 25 per
cent. Store will be maintained at
absolute minimum. Everything
possible will be done to continue
operations, but no guarantees can
be given.
Road and Trail
Work of District
Mr. George Young, road superintendent, returned last Sunday,
—via the overland route—from
Ayiansh, on the Naas River, where
he has been inspecting the roads,
trails and bridges. There are now
at Ayiansh, 15 miles of trail slashed
out from Grease Harbor towards
Cranberry River, on the west side
of the Naas, and with the expenditure of about $4,000 it could be
made into a first-class wagon road.
Two miles of road is slashed out
from the Seax River towards
Terrace, and serves" a rich agricultural country, and there are quite
a few miles of other trails through
different parts of the valley.
The Illiance River trail is now
up the-Valley 11 miles and if
another 14 or 15 miles of trail were
built from Bowman Lakes, it would
connect with the roads and trails
of Ayiansh. The roads and trails
of Ayiansh are connected by paok
trails with the road and trail systems of the upper Skeena River
and it would be then possible if the
Illiance River trail was connected
with the Ayiansh trails and a suspension bridge built over the Naas
River, to ride a saddle horse from
Alice Arm through to Kitwancool
and Hazelton, on the Skeena
The Ayiansh valley is one of the
most fertile valleys in the north.
Mr. Young, while there, saw apples
and tomatoes growing, and green
corn ready for the table, wild
cherries grow in profusion, and the
valley is specially adapted to fruits
of all kinds. The climate is dry in
summer, and the snow-fall in winter is between 2 and 3 feet. Garter
snakes abound, proving that the
climate is dry.
The Kitsault River trail from
the Wolf Mine to Trout Creek, and
from Trout Creek to Clearwater
Creek, will be repaired this year.
All future work this year will
done on main trails.
The money is appropriated for
the Wharf Road Bridge, opposite
the Alice Arm Hotel, and \tenders
will be called for locally.
Mr. A McGuire has finished the
trail on the north-east fork of the
Kitsault River, and arrived in
town on Wednesday, with a crew
of four men. ALICE   ARM   AND   ANYOX   HERALD,   Alice Arm,   Saturday, August 27th., 1921

The appointment of
Mr. John Conway.
The appointment of Mr. John
Conway to Government Agent at
Anyox, is hailed with enthusiasm
by all the citizens of the north.
Mr. Conway is an old-timer in the
north, going to Stewart in 1904,
and he has been connected with
government affairs ever since. He
understands the difficulties the
pioneer prospector has to contend
with, and is courteous and obliging
and always ready to give advice
on- any matter pertaining to government affairs. The government has
made a wise choice in appointing
Mr. Conway, and his many friends
in the north wish him the best of
success in his new office.
The Missing Link.
The linking up of the Illiance
River trail and the trail system of
the Naas River at Ayiansh would
place Alice Arm in an insular
position. Only about 15 miles of
trail is needed, and we should then
be connected with the vast interior
of Northern British Columbia. It
would be then possible to ride
from Alice Arm to practically any
point in B. C. It would also be
possible to get from Alice Arm to
Ayiansh with supplies in one day,
instead of making the journey to
the mouth of the Naas River and
waiting days for a boat in order to
get up. It would bring a lot of
traffic through Alice Arm, and it
would also enable the ranchers of
Ayiansh to get to Alice Arm and
Anyox about a week quicker than
can now be done, and it would
mean' that more land would be
occupied in that fertile valley.
We hope to go further into the
matter in a future issue.
Officials of the
Premier Mine
Visit Property
The officials who visited the Premier mine recently were: H. A.
Guess, vice-president of the American Smelting and Refining Company and also a director of the
Premier Gold Mining Company,
accompanied by Mrs. Guess and
their son; also Isaac and Mrs.
Untermeyer and son, of New York.
Mr. Untermeyer, who is one of the
best known lawyers in the United
States, is one of the owners of the
Premier mine, as well as a director
of that company. Dr. Riokarts of
New York, was also one of the
party, being interested in the Premier mine. All the party, except
Mr. Guess, took motors and went
through to the mine and back in
time to catch the Prinee George on
her return trip.
A fitchered hole's the toughest thing I've tackled underground,
And I've gone against some rough stuff in my wanderings around;
But when it comes to meanness that will test your very soul,
There's nothing that compares to a badly fitchered hole.
Oh! there's different kinds of misery that makes a miner swear,
It may be gas and powder smoke, or foul and dusty air;
And carbide lamps that splutter out or choke and make a fuss
Are little incidental things that make a miner cuss.
It's bad enough to have a boss who's growling all the time,
Who kicks at this and kicks at that in going around the mine,
And a trammer has his troubles when a car goes off the track;
He swears, but gets a bit of steel and swears, but puts 'er back
A wiggletail's a beastly thing we sometimes have to run,
And the wearing of a muzzle is'nt looked upon as fun.'
Ohl the eating of a sweaty lunch and drinking hard boiled tea
Has made a lot of miners say, "She's deep enough for me."
There is'nt any pleasure in a hot and gassy raise,
It burns your eyes and nose and throat, your head is in a daze.
Sure there's nothing very pleasant in a wet and sloppy shaft,
And a boulder blocking up the chute will drive a mucker daft.
But these are only little things I mention by the way;
They're things a miner overcomes so he can draw his pay.
When things are going smoothly and you're getting in a round.
A fitchered hole's the meanest thing you'll tackle underground.
You'll fight and curse and sweat and work until you're all but in,
For the fitchered hole's the meanest kind of concentrated sin.
Some day you'll start for heaven, and before you reach the goal,
Saint Peter's going to ask you what you called a fitchered hole.

PROPS. ALICE   ARM   AND   ANYOX   HERALD,   Alice Arm,   Saturday, August 27th., 1921
To be, or not to be; that is the
Are we going to let another
winter pass by, while Father Time
turns over the included months to
his credit and our discredit.
Life is usually just what we
make it, and though the immediate
future does not appear to be any
too encouraging, that does not
give us a reason why we should
not support a very necessary diversion, an excercise which has the
greatest exhilarating and developing powers both to young and old.
Hockey in itself is admitted everywhere the fastest and most exciting
game known, and we have lived
here all this time with none of 4*,
none of the winter pleasure enjoyed
by other places under the same
climatic conditions. We have every
reason in the world to become
regular dispeptics.
Here we live under conditions
rather singular, where nature gives
us practically nothing in pleasure,
■ so why not make the best of it,
especially when the opportunity
affords itself, which is now.
It is hardly doing ourselves
justice to pass this winter as we
have lived them, and certainly not
supporting the pioneer spirit which
is noted for its sportsmanship. It
is true that very earnest attempts
have been made towards it in previous years, but supported only by
individuals acting  independently,
while now we have an organisation,
a delegation appointed by the people and working for them heart
and soul.
The months of winter idleness
are a serious consideration, not
only for the morality of growing
children, but also for the support
of personal efficiency, mental, and
good human nature qualities of the
older people. We need nothing
more to teach us the outstanding
necessity of a skating rink, and it
is a foregone conclusion that we
are in dire need of such a whole-
some diversion.
Let us make it our aiming point
for this fall, and with a little unity
of thought and support there is no
reason in the world why the result
should not be«crowned with success
admitting no avenue of regret for
Alice Arm School
The plans for the new school,
which have been made out by Mr,
Al. Falconer, call for a building
24ft. by 40ft. outside measurement.
Two cloak rooms, 10ft. by 10ft.,
will1 be provided at the rear end of
the building, and a hallway 4 feet
wide between them. The living
quarters for the school teacher will
be upstairs. The building will be
V jointed inside and siding outside,
and it is hoped to have it completed
by October 1st. It is hoped that
the building will be built by volunteer labor, and everyone will be
asked to lend a hand for the good
of the cause.

the same position for the championship of the second series. These
two teams having each won six
games and lost two. The smelter
have been running in hard luck all
through the second series, not having won a game, but Sherman and
his gas eaters have turned out
smiling on every occasion and
played the game for all that was
in it, like a bunch of good sports,
and they earn the appreciation of
every one of the fans for the hard
struggle they have put up. For
without the smelter team in the
