Tiger Mine Will Commence
Shipping During Next Year
Mine Shows Great Promise and Work Being Pushed
Development work on the Tiger
property will be pushed to the
limit and it is hoped to install a
100-ton concentrating mill next
summer and that before the end of
next year the mine will be shipping
concentrates and bullion, states E.
H. Martin, manager of the Utility
Mining and Financing Co. who
was in Alioe Arm last week-end in
company with P. B. Peterson,
consulting engineer.
The new compressor plant and
engine, consisting of an Ingersoll
Rand compound compressor aud a
Petters Deisel oil engine is now
ready for shipment from Vancouver and is expected at Alice Arm
at any time. As soon as it arrives
it will be installed and operated
throughout the coming winter.
With the installation of the
compressor plant development
work will be carried out on three
levels, 140, 240, and 400 foot levels.
After ore was encountered in the
140, and 240 levels, work was commenced ou the 400 level. It has
been driven a distance of 30 feet,
with two shifts working. It is expected to encounter the-orein this
tunnel at a depth' of 400 feet.
Following the coming winter's
development work it is planned to
ship the concentrating mill north
early in the spring, and as soon as
snow is off the railway to Camp 8
to transport it to the Tiger, and it
is expected that the mill will be
operating before the snow flies and
steady shipments of concentrates
and bullion made.
The mill will consist of a combin
ation of concentrating and making
bullion, the larger portion of the
product shipped will be in the form
of bullion. This bullion will comprise the silver values and the concentrates will consist of a 70 to 80
per cent lead concentrate.
Next year's development work
will include anelectrical prospecting
programme, which will locate ore
bodies not exposed on the surface.
A new camp will be constructed this
fall at an elevation 700 feet lower
than the present camp.
Mr. Martin, manager of the
Utility Company, inspected the property on Saturday, and was amazed
at the large tonnage of ore developed in so short a time. The large
tonnage and excellent quality of the
ore and the prospects of an immediate increase of tonnage fully convinced him that in the Tiger the
company has a mine that will rank
among the best in the province.
Efforts will be made by the company to create a record, if possible,
in transforming the Tiger from a
prospect to a shipper of concen.
trates and bullion.
The Utility company is one that
is out to get results and they are
certainly getting them on the Tiger.
They have in the Tiger one of the
best silver properties of the Alice
Arm district. They have secured
in Mr. Peterson, consulting engineer, one of the ablest mining engineers and millmen of the province,
and Mr. Pickett, foreman of the
mine, is a man who understands
mining from A to Z.
Two Mine Workers Fall
To Tlieir Death
Two fatalities occurred at
the Anyox mine last week when
two miners plunged to their death
by falling from the places they were
working in at the big Hidden Creek
The victims were: Valter Hein-
rich Lilligals, aged 21, a native of
Finland and Tomo Rubcich, aged
30, a native of J ngo Slavia. The
former, who met his death on Friday, is survived by his father and
mother and three brothers of Lup-
pfgard, Finland, and one brother
who is employed at the Golkeish
Mine near Anyox.
The latter, whose fatal accident
occurred the following day, leaves
to mourn his loss his wife and two
children and father and mother, all
of Rastaka, Smiljan, Jugoslavia.
He had been a resident of Anyox
for 1 y2 years, and Lilligals resided
here for 1 year.
The funeral of both victims was
held on Tuesday at the Anyox ceme
tery, and a large number of friends
attended. The funeral service for
Lilligals was conducted by Rev
Dewar of the Union Church, and
Rev. Father Champaign of the
Catholic Church conducted the
service at the burial of Rubcich.
Funeral arrangements were in|
charge of R. T. Cstrick.      m*  m
At a coroner's inquest held in
connection with the death of the
above mentioned victims a verdict
of accidental death was brought in

Alice Arm Saturday Night
Dance Greatly Enjoyed
Another of those popular Saturday night dances which have become frequent during the past two
months, was held at the Alice Arm
Hotel on Saturday. A large number were present, including those
from Alice Arm and a number of
Anyox visitors. The floor was
comfortably crowded with dancers
throughout the evening and a very
enjoyable time was spent.
Music was supplied by the Alice
Arm orchestra in its usual snapr"
manner, and the musicians received
many compliments from the Anyox
visitors. The orchestra was composed of Wm. Stephens, piano;
F. Butterfield, violin; Chas. Hutchinson, clarinet; E. Aubusson, traps
and drums.

A Record That Will Require
Some Skill to Beat
Without a doubt, the fishermen's
championship of the district must be
given to Harold Eld of Anyox.
Every year this young angler pays
a visit to Alice Arm and each year
hg never fails to land a few hundred
trout. This year, however, he has
excelled himself, for since the 16th.
of this month he has landed close to
one thousand fish. His best catches
for one day have been 128 and 124.
How he does it when fish are
scarce for other anglers has not yet
been solved.

With all her flags flying and her
sides thronged with passengers,
comprising members of the Vancouver Board of Trade, the palatial
steamer Princess Alice of Canadian
Pacific coastwise service drew along
side the Government wharf on Sunday at 12.30p.m.
Large crowds were on hand to
welcome the visitors and greetings
were thrown back and forth as the
boat was made fast.
Luncheon followed immediately
and officers and others of the Alice
Arm Branch of the British Columbia
Chamber of Mines were guests of
the visitors.
The visitors numbered ninety-
eight and over sixty entrained for
the Toric, where they were shown
through the mine, and inspected the
concentrating mill, which was running like a clock, turning out concentrates. Refreshments were provided at the mine by the local
Chamber of Mines, and the test
party arrived at the boat at 9 pjjm.

Drive a 1000 Foot
Tunnel on Sunrise
The Kitsault-Eagle Silver Mines
Ltd. have commenced work on a

The visit of the members of the
Vancouver Board of Trade to
Alice Arm on Sunday is the second in two years. Their decision
to include Alice Arm in their
itinerary again this year shows that
we had something worth while to
show them, and that they appreciated our hospitality, which perhaps was limited, but Alice Arm
with its small population did its
best, as a mining camp always
does when strangers visit. Both
Vancouver and Alice Arm will
benefit from the visit. The former
city more fully realizes our vast
mineral riches that lie undeveloped
waiting for the hand of man to
convert them into wealth. They
also realize the problems and difficulties confronting a new mining
camp, and by visiting us they
understand more fully that the development of our natural resources
will benefit the city of Vancouver
equally as much as it does the
north. All supplies are purchased
in the southern metropolis, and a
large portion of the wages also
find their way south. The ships
that carry the supplies north are
also a part of Vancouver. During their stay at Alice Arm they
had an opportunity of securing
first class information regarding the
district from an investment point
of view. Each year the amount
of money invested in mining stock
by Vancouver business men is increasing. They realize that if the
mining industry is to be fostered
home capital must be forthcoming
in addition to foreign investments.
Such visits as we received on Sunday are conducive to increased
prosperity to the province from
whatever angle it is viewed and we
hope a return visit will not be
delayed too long.
A few years ago when millions
of salmon were swarming up every
river and creek on the coast, the
supply was said to be inexhaustible.
But today with our big rivers sadly
depleted and a number of the
creeks barren, the idle boast of
yesterday has been proven a fallacy. The canneries have only
themselves to blame for the depletion of the fish, they fished every
river and creek to the limit with
no thought of tomorrow. At the
present time we hear from some
quarters of our inexhaustible supply of timber, but at the present
rate of cutting it is possible that the
next twenty years will see the last
of the big timbers cut, and what
then? Mining and agriculture will
be our chief industries, and mining
Reported Big Strike Of
Copper on George
Th<> Consolidated Mining &
Smelting Co. diamond drill crew
working on the George Copper at
Stewart, is reported to have cored
into an 11-1't. vein of $150 ore in an
ore body 100 feet wide.
The core was actually about 250
feet in oopper ore running from 3
to 9 per cent, copper with some
gold, but the angle of the hole
would set the width of the ore body
at 100 feet. The gold content is
said to be in the neighborhood of
$16.00 per ton.
This news, obtained by The Financial News on what is regarded
as reliable authority, lifts George
Copper to a high place in the Consolidated Mining & Smelting Co.
family of companies. There is a
growing possibility that George
Copper will prove a sensation as a
mine and in the stock market.
There are very few George shares
iu circulation.
The mine was developed in its
early stages by W. B. George of
Stewart and Victoria. Victoria
capital supported it until the Consolidated acquired control about a
year ago. The big Trail company
holds under option 1,395,000shares
of $1 par stock. William George
holds about 45,000 shares and the
public about 60,000.—The Financial News.

trying to sell some lots to a Vancouver visitor.
''All this place needs is good people* and water," he averred.
"Sure" said the Vancouver man.
"That's all hell needs, too."
will be the more important, for it
will create work for thousands of
workmen in mines, mills, and
smelters, thus creating a home market for our agricultural products.
The future prosperity of the
province depends upon the mining
industry and when this has been
fully developed the centre of population will probably move to the
north. In the northern portion of
the province there are still thousands of square miles, that have
never been prospected. Minerals
are known to exist, and their successful development will undoubtedly create huge industrial centers
and at the same time open up for
agriculturists huge tracks of fertile

Ice Conditions In Arctic
Are Bad This Year
Ioe conditions in the Western
Arctic, and especially at Point
Barrow, have been especially difficult for shipping to cope with this
season, and according to reports
now received from the north, the
prospects are for a very short period of open water around Barrow.
This is the gateway to the Canadian Western Arctio as it is here
that the polar pack locks itself
to tho shore late in summer and
shuts off the water route for ten or
more months each year.
This year it was late in opening
and the inbound traders had delay
and difficulty in rounding the
point. The ships finally passed inward on or about the last day of
July. SS. Bayohimo, on August 1
was forced into shallow water and
ashore'by the ice pack, but released
herself undamaged.
The ships are coming out again
and already the polar pack is
threatening to lock the passage.
The American trading'schooner C.
S. Holmes was penned in Point
Barrow for four days and after the
wind ohanged to the North, managed to blast her way through to
fairly open water, where, with the
assistance of another vessel, she has
hopes of making the open Arctic
to the east of Barrow with no more
danger of serious ice trouble.
