Big Programme of
Development for
3 Properties
Kitsault-Eagle Co. Will Install
Two Compressor Plants
The Kitsault-Eagle Silver Mines
Ltd. will develop their three properties on a much larger scale this
year than heretofore, states Mr. A.
MoGuire, who has full charge of
operations, and who returned to
Alioe Arm on Monday from a business trip to Vancouver and Victoria in connection with company
Mr. McGuire states that a compressor plant will beinstalledonboth
the Eagle and Silver Cord properties. These will be taken in as
soon as the trails are improved for
their passage, which is expected at
an early date. The government
having promised sufficient money
for the completion of tho trails and
the repairing of existing ones to all
' three properties.
The construction of camps and
trail improvement will be commenced immediately, and on Thurs
, day morning a pack train left for
the Eagle and a force of four men
put to work.
Next week a pack train will leave
for the Silver Cord, and the work
of driving the tunnel, which has
'■ been carried on throughout the
winter will be completed. As soon
as the big ore body has been crosscut a new tunnel will be commenced lower down the hill, whioh
will give an additional 200 feet
depth on the ore. The tunnel now
being driven is in 236 feet. It was
commenced on Ootober 25th. The
entire work was done by hand
drilling by three men aud sometimes two. This record is one of
which any oompany might well be
proud, and speaks well for efficient

con.si.st of driving a short crosscut
tunnel. When this has been completed a lower tunnel will be driven
which will give an additional 400
feet depth ou the ore.
Both of the above mentioned
properties carry big surface showings of ore, whioh, have been fully
described in previous issues of the
Herald. The tunuel driven this
winter on the Silver Cord proves
that these showings not only carry
their values at depth, but that values have increased.
Development on the LeRoy must
necessarily wait until the paoktrail
has been completed to the property,
and as soon as this has been done
a full force will be employed.
Mr. McGuire states that the financial affairs of the company are
in first-class condition, and that
ample money is available for a full
year's development work. Sufficient funds are also obtainable for
any programme of development
work that may be undertaken by
the company at any future date.
Overhead costs are practically
non-existent.    The money is put
Balance of Toric Machinery
May Arrive Next Week
Mr. A. C. H. Gerhardi, managing
director of the Toric Mines Company
Ltd. arrived in Alice Arm on Thursday.
In an interview with the Herald,
he stated that nineteen tons of milling machinery would probably arrive

the mill machinery with the exception of the generator, which will be
delivered in Vancouver about the
beginning of June. Operations will
commence at the Toric as soon as
sufficient snow hasdissolved to allow
supplies to be shipped in.

A very interesting and enjoyable
musicale was held at the Anyox
General Hospital on Monday evening. The concert was given by a
group of local artistes, for the
benefit of the patients. It was the
first of a series of fortnightly con-
certs inaugurated by Mr. J. E.
Kania. The programme consisted
of the following numbers.
1. Piano Solo, Mr. C   Madsen.
(a) March in D flat, by Hollainder.
(b) Juba Dance, by Percy Grainger.
2. Tenor Solo, by Mr. W. Murdoch, (a) "Take a pair of sparkling eyes," by Sullivan; (b) ''At
dawning" by Cadman.
3. Violin solo, by J. E. Kania.
(a) "To Spring" by Grieg; (b)
Humoresque, by Dvorak.
4. Soprano Solo, by Mrs. F. R.
Laws. (a) "Fiddle and I" by
Weatherly Goodeve; (b) Out where
the West begins" by Chapman
Philleo. Violin obligato, by J. E.
Kania. ..
5. Piano solo by Mr C. Madsen.
(a) Ballade in A flat,  by Chopin;
(b) "Guirlandes" by Godard.
6. Baritone solo, by M. J. Hag-
gerty. "Loving smile of Sister
kind" from "Faust" by Gounod.
7. Violin duet, by J. E. Kania
and S. Armstrong. "Tales of
Hoffman, by Offenbach.
8. Tenor solo, by Mr. W. F.
Eve. (a). Duna" by McGill; (b)
"Remember" by Irving Berlin.   .
Accompanist, Mrs. A. Pynn.
Mr. Madsen, a very accomplished
pianist, played his numbers with
precision and excellent attack.
Mr. Murdoch's tenor voice, ever
pleasant to the earr came to best
advantage in Cadman's "At Dawning," which the singer rendered in a
gratifying and pleasing manner.
The violin numbers by Mr. Kania
were played with the greatest feeling and understanding. Mrs, F.
R. Laws, a visitor to the city, was
a distinct acquisition to the concert.
She is the possessor of an excellent
soprano voice which was- heard at
l-its best in Goodeve's favorite
"Fiddle and I." Mr. Haggerty, in
a well sustained voice, sang a rather
difficult selection from Gounod's
"Faust" in a very satisfactory manner. Always a favorite in musical
circles, Mr. W. F. Eve rendered
his numbers in his usually pleasant
manner, and concluding the programme left one with a gratified
feeling and a wish for more.
Too frequently we forget about
the important part that an accompanist plays in a concert, and too
much can not be said of the sympathetic and understanding manner in
which Mrs. A. Pynn performed her
duties in that important department.

Next week, commencing on
April 24th. and terminating on the
30th. has been set aside throughout the Dominion as "Save The
Forest Week". The idea of a
"Save The Forest Week" is for
the purpose of drawing the attention of everyone to the wasteful
forest fires each year. The dry
season will soon be with us again,
and the call of the wild will claim
many devotees. Those who are
in the woods during the summer
months whether for business or
pleasure, should be extremely
careful, regarding leaving camp
fires burning, or throwing away
lighted matches, cigarettes etc.
The seaplane of Commander de
Pinedo was burnt at Roosevelt
Dam, Arizona, and the spectacular
round-the-world flight of the intrepid Italian was interrupted to the
disappointment of millions who
were anxious to see the complete
trip become history.
The cause of the loss was a
match thrown carelessly on the oil-
coated surface of the lake on'which
the seaplane rested. The youth
who lighted his cigarette and
caused the disaster* is the subject
of condemnation in a press message
which has been broadcasted all
over the world.
But what about the careless
smokers and tourists who throw
away half extinguished matches
and cigarettes in our forest lands,
causing fires that destroy millions of
feet of valuable timber, the harvesting and manufacturing of which
gives employment to thousands of
A new seaplane is to be sent in
a week or two from Italy to enable
de Pinedo to finish his flight, but it
will take a hundred years to replace
a forest.
A few years ago a tiny spark
was the cause of a serious com-
flagation at Anyox, which came
within an ace of destroying the
entire plant. Had such an event
occurred it would have thrown over
1000 men out of work and rendered over 250 families homeless, and
their possessions destroyed. It
behooves everyone to be particularly
careful, especially in the Anyox
and Alice Arm districts where the
Large Map of Vast North
Country Issued
In a new map just issued by the
Topographical Survey, Department
of the Interior, the great district
comprising northern portions of
Alberta and British Columbia,
Yukon Territory and Mackenzie
Distriot are shown with the most
complete information available.
The topography is corrected to the
latest surveys and all'data relating
to settlements, trading posts, missions, and other activities is included.
The map reveals the vastness of
the country, its varied character
and the activities which are already
under way. It may surprise many
people to know that trading posts
are now established at many points
along the arctic Coast and that a
modern steamboat service is operated through the Mackenzie system
making the far north accessible to
the tourist, the sportsman and the
business man.
The map is on a scale of 50 miles
to the inch and is 21 inches by 34
inches in size. It may be obtained
for the nominal charge of 25 cents,

Advertising Pays Everyone
The Chevrolet Co. manufacturers
of autos, are this year spending
$9,000,000 in advertising. This is

create new business you must advertise. The big fellows know that
it pays to buy advertising space.
timber is dying which causes the
ground to dry much more rapidly
than is the case where the timber
is green.
The fact that the Consolidated
Mining and Smelting Co. have decided to enter the Portland Canal
country is causing a great deal of
satisfaction to mining men in the
north and especially at Stewart.
The Consolidated, as the company
is usually termed, operates the big
smelter at Trail and mill at Kimberly
It is only recently that they have
made any serious efforts to develop
large copper properties. At the
present time they are developing
the Coast Copper and Sunloch
properties on Vancouver Island,
and also large holdings in Northern
Quebec. Their acquisition of the
George property at Stewart,
which is also a copper property,
seems to lend some truth to recent
reports of a Consolidated copper
smelter on the coast within a few
years, should the Stewart property
develop as favorably as has been
the case on Vancouver Island.

Consolidated Co. Enters
Northern Field at
Portland Canal has been again
taken the centre of the stage
in the British Columbia Mining
situation as a result of the sale
to the Consolidated Mining & Smelting Company of the George Copper
Mines on Bear River.
The big smelting corporation,
which figured prominently in the
week's mining news by the sensational showing of its two Vancouver Island properties, Coast Copper
and Sunloch, has decided to enter
the Portland Canal field in a big way
and as a preliminary has undertaken
a two-year programme of development on the George property, Directors of the company will visit the
property during the spring.      ,
The agreement transferring
ownership of the George Copper
Mine's to the Consolidated were
signed by W. B. George, P, M.
Linklater, Richard Jones and Frank
C. Green.
The purchase is regarded by mining men as the most important
piece of news that has come out of
the Portland Canal country since the
Guggenheim interests entered that
The George property is at the head'
of the Bear river valley, near the
Glacier, and about six miles distant
from the end of the railway at the
Red Cliff mine, It is owned by W.
B. George and associates, who have
held the ground for a number of
years. An option was taken on it
in 1922 by the Granby Co. who relinquished the property without
doing any development work. It is
stated that owing to its inaccessibility, a large amount of money will
be necessary to bring it to the production stage.

Alaska Has Mining School
For Prospectors
Each year the Alaska School of
Mines at Fairbanks, Alaska, offers
two courses, lasting ten weeks eaoh
for prospectors and miners. This
work includes elementary training
in the principals of geology, mining,
and mineralogy. Each year it
draws prospeotors and small mine
owners from all points in the territory. Men from Interior points
often travel 300 or 400 miles with
dog teams to reach the college for
this work. This year twenty-five
men were trained.
Don't he too independent: even
the ladder to success has to lean on
something before you can climb it.
The Minimum Wage Board of
Victoria contemplate the extension
of the Act beyond those engaged
in the lumber industry to include
ultimately every adult male engaged in industry in the Province.
