LaRose Mine Will
Be Developed
This Year
Tunnel To  Be   Driven To
Strike Ore At Depth
The Alioe Ann LaRose Mining
Co. Ltd., contemplate an extensive
programme of development work
on the LaRose property this year.
According to present plans of the
company, a tunnel about 450 feet
in length will bo driven, in order to
strike the high grade ore body at
depth, and when this has been
accomplished, shipping of the high
grade ore, known to exist on the
property, will be carried out.
The LaRose was one of the earliest properties staked in the district. It is located in the Kitsault
Valley, seven miles from the Dolly
Varden railway wharf, and is less
than a mile from the railway
tracks, and consists of five crown
granted claims.
Considerable development has
been done by the owners, and in
1919, 22 tons of ore was shipped to
Trail smelter, which yielded 353
ou vices silver, and 3 ounces gold
-';■'.'^on. ..
Iii 1920, the present company
was incorporated, with a capitalization of 1,000,000 shares of $1
par value, but owing to the unfavorable condition of the mining
industry, little work was done at
that time.
At the recent meeting of the
directors held in Prince Rupert, it
was decided to place a block of
stock on the market for development purposes, along the lines
suggested in the Minister of Mines
Report for the year 1919.
. Stock will shortly be offered to
the public at 50 cents per share,
par value $1. Mr. J. M. Morrison
will be the sole selling agent, and
he is also financially interested in
the property.
The officers of the company are:
President, Dr. W. T. Kergin, Prince
Rupert. Vice-President, James
Thompson, Prince Rupert. Directors: Miles Donald, and J. Wells,
Alice Arm. Secretary: E. H.
Mortimer, Prince Rupert.
It is the intention of the company that all money subscribed
shall be spent on the ground, there
being no heavy overhead expenses.
Present work on the property
consists of 125 feet of tunnel, and a
shaft 35 feet in depth. Considerable surface work has also been
done. Samples taken from ore in
the shaft have given returns of
from $20.00 to $1400.00 silver per
ton. The new tunnel to be driven
will encounter this ore at a depth
of about 200 feet, and the late
method of raising the ore up the
shaft will be eliminated.
In addition to the ore in the
shaft and tunnel, a quartz vein 20
feet wide carrying values in gold
and silver is located on the property.

Mr. and Mrs. J. Hart
Tlie Ladies of the Mooseheart
Legion and members of the
L O. O. M. visited Mr. Joe Hart
at his house last Monday evening,
and gave Joe a delightful surprise
party. Mr. Hart has been a very
faithful worker for the Loyal
Order of Moose and will be greatly
missed among his fellow members.
During the evening, Mr. Hart was
the recipient of a handsome ring,
emblematic of the Loyal Order of
Moose, and presented to him by
members of Anyox Lodge No.

recipient of a beautiful present,
being presented with half-a-dozen
silver Community Plate spoons by
the ladies of Mooseheart Legion.
Mr. Hart left for Vancouver
last Thursday evening, where he
will visit for a short time, and then
he expects to spend a prolonged
vacation with his parents at Harrison Mills.
the Dolly Varden railway. Camps
are in good condition and tools are
on the ground for immediate use.
' i'he following article, relative to
the property, was published in the
Annual Report of the Minister of
Mines for the year 1919.
"LaROSE GROUP. This group
consists of two claims*—LaRose and
LaRose No. 1—owned by Miles Doa
aid and partners, of Alice Arm, and
situated on Paul Klayduc creek, two
miles from the Dolly Varden railroad,
from which there is a good pack trail
to the mine. The general formation
is a fine-grained greyish rock. The
vein is quartz carrying blende, galena,
pyrite, grey-copper, argentite, and
native silver.
"Considerable work has been done
by the owners each year, from which
about 50 tons of ore has been extracted and shipped, giving average returns
of over 250 ozs. silver to the ton.
Early this year the'owners shipped 22
tons to the Trail smelter, which yielded 3 ozs. gold, and 6,157 ozs. silver. A
tunnel has been driven, following the
vein from the surface for about 125
feet. This was started on ore which
continued for about 40 feet from the
portal, where a short winze was sunk
on it. It was decided, however, to
sink a shaft at the mouth of the
tunnel in order to be in the best part
of the ore shoot, and at the same time
provide for ore sorting facilities in
daylight. The shaft was sunk 14 feet,
drifted on both ways fromthe bottom,
and some very fine ore stoped out.
There is about a foot of good ore
in the bottom. Further sinking
would be required to take out more
"To the north of this showing the
hill falls rapidly along the strike of
the vein, and it would be good development work to try and pick up the
vein at some depth to drift on it. On
account of a slide th at would be dangerous in winter, it would require a
crosscut tunnel possibly 450 feet long
to get to the vein, which would give1
a depth on it of about 200 feet below
the present workings. There is every
reason to suppose that there are other
ore shoots in the vein similar to the
one now being worked, and if these
could be opened up at a depth of 200
feet it would put the property on a
profitable basis.
"Judging from the persistence of
the vein so far, the extent and value
of the ore shoot already opened up,
and taking into consideration the
location of the property for shipping,
I would have no hesitation in recommending the undertaking of the development work mentioned.
"There is also a big quartz vein on
the property that has had no exploration and which would be well worth
considerable development."
♦Since this was written, three more
claims have been added.

Mine Win From All Star
Two league fixtures and one exhibition game were played at the
Beach Gymnasium, on Monday
evening. The first contest was in
the International division between
tne Mine and the High School.
The former team completely outclassed their opponents. The
High Sohool missed Eddie Dupuis
sadly, Dupuis being not able to
play owing to illness. Lazoreok
and Stewart McLachlan were
the shining lights for the losers;
while Swanson and Peters played
well for the winners.
The teams were:
Mine: Peters, L. Moore, V.
Moore, Swanson and Thorpe.
High School: E. Clay, H. Clay,
McLachlan, Lazoreck, McDonald.
The second game was the titbit of the evening, bringing together the Bluebirds and the Mine
squad of the Ladies' League, the
former team winning by the score
of 15 to 14. By virtue of their
win, the Mine girls won the second
half of the schedule, therefore forcing the Champions of last season
to a play-off for the premier position this year. The Mine stepped
into the lead right at the start of
hostilities, and remained ahead until the finish. It was not until the
last ten minutes that they were in
danger at all. Helen Calderone
was best for the winners, and Mrs.
MacTaggart for the losers,
The teams were:
Mine: Misses Dean, MacMillan,
Rashleigh, Calderone, and Mesdames Chapman and Wenistrom.
Bluebirds: Mesdames Cody, McTaggart, Dwyer, McQuarrie,
Smith, and Crone.
The final game of the evening
was between an all-star five picked from the Smelter and the Coke
Plant teams, and the Mine, Champions of the senior league for 1924-
1925. The Miners lived up to
their title by a 34 to 23 count.
The game was fairly close in the
early stages, but superior combination and team play told in the end
when the winners had things all
their own way.
The teams were:
Mine: S. Stewart, Lane, R.
Stewart, Dean, Mitchell, Halverson, McNioholl.
All Stars; Cody, Down, York,
Staines, Hogben. Brown.

Owing to the resignation of Mrs.
H. A. Thorley, it was necessary to
appoint a Secretary, and Miss McFarlane was unanimously elected
to that office.
The question of a magazine devoted to the interests of the P. T.
Association of the Province was
discussed, and the suggestion made
by the Provincial P. T. A. Federation that 25 cents per member be
paid annually towards the
establishment of a P. T. paper,
was endorsed.
At the conclusion ofthe business,
Dr. Learoyd gave a most interesting and instructive lecture on the
hygeian of the child, which deals
with the laws of health and observation.
The subject was divided into
two parts, physical hygeian and
mental hygeian. Children in the
period from 2 to 7 years offer more
problems than infants. It is the
time when the child is most -subject to infection, and therefore it is
necessary to build up his physical
condition, so that he will be able
to resist infectious, deceases, and
when contracted to come through
successfully. There were three
divisions of diet: carbo-hydrates,
fats and proteins. Carbo-hydrats

Invest In Local Enterprises
A large number of people decry the fact that foreign capital is
somewhat tardy in investing capital in the mining industry of the
province, but they overlook the
fact that they themselves should
be the first to put their money in
sound local mining investments.
An enormous amount of Canadian
capital, has of late years been invested in foreign countries, principally in the U.S.A. The numerous oil companies that have of late
years been floated across the line,
has drained the province of millions of dollars, and it would be interesting to learn what returns the
B. C. investors have obtained on
their money, and whether there is
any prospect of their ever receiving any returns. It. has been
estimated, that one oil company of
Texas obtained two million dollars
from British Columbia, chiefly from
small investors. To obtain money
for any legitimate enterprise,
Americans do not have to canvass
the small investors of B.C.
Canadians can ill afford to send
money to foreign countries for
development purposes. We have
right at our doors one of the
wealthiest mineral districts in the
Dominion, and the lack of capital
is the only cause of its non-development. The investing public of
Anyox and Alice Arm, have an
opportunity at the present time i
they have not possessed for years,
for investing their money in good,
legitimate mining projects. There
are—or will be in a few days-
three mining companies selling
stock in properties located at Alice
Arm. These companies are all
controlled by local men, who are
efficient, and who will spend the
money on the ground, under expert supervision. Those who contemplate any investment should
first examine the opportunties at
their own door, before sending
money to some questionable promotion of which they do not know
anything, except that which falls
from the glib tongue of some high-
trained unscrupluous salesmen.
A newspaper's income is principally from the sale of publicity
(advertising). This is the only
way an editor has of making a
living. It costs somebody something for every line that goes into
a newspaper. When an editor
publishes something that helps a
cause or a people, he is denoting
just so much of good hard money.

Sullivan Is Now Among
Big Mines Of The
System Perfected At Big
Expense For Extracting
The rise of Kimberly as a milling camp is Hue sole!/ to the persist cut. efforts of the Consolidated
Mining and Smelting Co. of
Canada. In .19.11 the Consolidated
company bought the Sullivan mine
from the Fort: Steele Mining and
Smelting Co. for a consideration of
$40,000. The Sullivan, even then,
was admitted to be a great mine if
some method could be worked out
to handle the Sullivan ores successfully.
The Fort Steele company, after
spending thousands of dollars
building a smeltei1 arid experimenting, was unable lo work out a
satisfactory method to handle the
mixed lead, zinc, and iron ores.
When the mine was sold to the
Consolidated, it was generally considered a 'white elephant" because
of the refractory nature of the ores.
Officials of the Consolidated,
however, were not discouraged by
the failure of former operations to
make the Sullivan a paying mine.
They were positive that some
method could be worked out to
handle the immense ore bodies
By constant experimenting a
method of handling the refractory
ores was found, which has placed
the Sullivan among the leading
producers and dividend payers on
the North American continent.
Discovery of the flotation system
of concentrating refractory ores,
and the perfecting of the electrolytic method of handling zinc concentrates having a high iron content, have played no small part in
making the Sullivan operations
The success of the Consolidated
company with the Sullivan mine,
after other operators had failed,
is typical of the majority of the
great mines of the Northwest.
The Bunker Hill mine was condemned by experts when it was in
its early stages, yet the Bunker
Hill company refused to quit, and

Liquid Light Will  Be
Next Illuminant
The simple electric light switch
by means of which a room can be
Hooded with brilliant light, or even
a whole town illuminated in a
moment, was a tremendous step in
advance, but we are now promised
a light which never goes out.
There is nothing to pay, except the
original cost of buying, say, half a
pint of liquid light.
This liquid light is poured into a
bulb., and the resultant light is
said to be superior to electric or
any other known light, except
nature's own brand of daylight.
This light, being in fact, radioactive, will remain good for seven
years or more, when the bulb may
require refill nig.
It is claimed, also, that this
liquid will eventually make coal
and oil power a thing of the past.
If that is the case, the real abolition of smoke seems to be in sight,
for, although electric, as long as
fuel is necessary for its power, is
smokeless, there will be smoke

Instructive Address Given By
Dr. EH R. Learoyd At Anyox
P. T. A. Meeting
Continued from page 1
taught to eat all vegetables.
Dealing with the subject, of
sleep, the Doctor pointed out that
troubled sleep whether iu the
young child, adolescent, or adult,
was often due to physical causes,
such as defective ventilation, or
insufficient covering. A warm
but light covering should be used
on the bed.
The habit of putting the child
to bed at a proper hour was of
great assistance to sleep, as was
also the posture assumed by it.
He deprecated the too frequent
attendance of the adolescent at
parties, as it had a tendency to
make them lax and insipid. Companionship and sports were
necessary for boys and girls during
this period, and the harder they
play the better.
Discipline is a part of mental
hygeian. To discipline a child in
a corporal way after 6 years of age,
is a waste of time. It only induces rebelliousness in older children. A child has many fears.
He fears the dark, the bogey-man,
and animals, and it is a great
shame that he has those fears.
Everyone should be careful what
stories they tell children. The
nervous child is to be pitied, because it could have been prevented.
The lecturer advised a good
spank placed in the right position,
when the child flew into a tantrum, or held his breath, and
strongly advocated that parents
should bring a sense of humour to
the situation. This often helps
much better than a whipping. He
also assured his hearers that the
child would persist in his misdemeanor if he found he could make
capital out of his performance.
A vote of thanks was accorded
to the Doctor for his helpful address on the motion of Rev. J.
Herdman, seconded by Mrs. O. K.
