[Three Mining Properties
Bonded at Alice Arm
The, David Copperfield mining
property,   which   joins the Dolly
I Varden* on  the  south,  lias been
I bonded to eastern oapital, for the
sum of $75,000.   Payments are to
run  over  four years,    The first
''. payment to be made one year from
[date  of   bonding.      Considerable
; stripping of the  leads   has . been
I done on the property and a tunnel
has   been  driven  about   25   feet
above the Kitsault river.
The property consists of the
David Copperfield; No. 1 and the
Silver Bell fraction, and is owned
by Wm. McLean, of Alice Arm,
A. E. Wright, of Prince Rupert,
and R. F. McGinnis, of Alice Arm.
i It was staked in 1914, by Geo.
Young and Wm. McLean. When
Mr. Young went overseas with the
0. E. P. in,1916, he sold his interest
to the late Mr. Chas. Swanson.
Mr. A. E. Wright of Prince Rupert
acquired Mr. Swanson's interest in
11919. Mr. R. F. McGinnis holds
[ one-tenth interest in the property.
According   to   the  agreement,
work is to commence within three
months and will consist this coming
winter of driving a tunnel Con-
siderable.development work will be
done next summer in order to prove
up the property.
The same company has also
bonded the Silver Bar group situated oh the north-east fork of the
Kitsault River and owned by Mr.
A. McGuire, for the sum of $75,000
The Silver Bar consists of 8 claims.
The Waverly group, consisting
of three claims, also situated on the
north-east fork of the Kitsault
River has been bonded by Mr;
McGuire for the sum of $30,000.1
Payments on these two properties
are spread over three years. First
pasmient to be made one year from
signing the agreement. No work,
except assessment work has been
done on these two properties.
The name of the company bonding these three properties can not
be ascertained. It is known that
eastern capital is interested, and it
is reported that Cobalt mining
companies are in the deal.
Eight Persons are
Thrown into the
Kitsault River
Hand Car Jumps the Track
on Dolly Varden Railway
A accident that might have ended in serious results, took place last
Sunday on the Dolly Varden Railway, when a hand car carrying
eight persons left the track and
plunged into the Kitsault River,
carrying all the passengers with it.
The accident took place about
five miles above the town of Alice
Arm, and was due to the river
undermining the track. The car
was proceeding towards town and
struck the bad spot when rounding
a curve, before the car could be
stopped it left the track and precipitated everyone into the icy
waters of the Kitsault River.
Luckily they were thrown into a
backwater of the driver or there
probably would have been airbus
loss of life, as the river was in flood
at the time. As it was, everyone
managed to scramble out, except
Major Creighton, of the Homestake
mine, who was hanging to a snag
calling for help. It was impossible
to get him from where he was, so
he let go and caught a sweeper log
farther down and was pulled out
by Jack Anderson and Jim Donald.
Mrs. R. F. McGinnis, who was
married a few weeks ago was
among the number. She displayed
great presence of mind, and did not
seem to mind the water at all.
She was one of the first to get
ashore, being an expert swimmer
and wanted to assist in rescuing
those still in the water.
As it was impossible to rescue
the car, everyone had to walk home
and no time was wasted in covering the five miles to Alice Arm.
Those on the hand car were:
Mrs. R. F. McGinnis; J. Fiva; J.
Anderson; Major Creighton; J.
Donald; H. Bbwkett; Dr. Bancroft, of Anyox 'and an eleotrician
of Anyox;'
First Class Copper
Showings at Anyox
Mr. W. Hanna has uncovered
some fine copper showings on his
claims joining the Hidden Creek
mine. The ledge can be traced on
the surface for a distance of 3000
feet, with an average width of 60
feet. It is pronounced by those
who have examined it as one of the
finest showings in the country.
The property consists of 14 claims.
Bush fires which burnt considerable of the muskeg has made the
prospecting of the ground much
Anyox Community
League Meeting
The newly elected council of the
Anyox Community League, held
their first weekly meeting at the
Recreation Hall, on Friday, October 7th, when all the councillors
Were present with the exception of
Mr. E. Wall, who was otherwise
engaged on the important business
of getting ore out of the Hidden
Creek mine.
Secretary Brown opened the
proceedings with the announce,-
ment that the first order of business
was the selection of president of
the League.
Mr. R. Armour, the only member
of the retiring council to hold office,
was unanimously eleoted President.
Mr. F. Hatt, one of the mine representatives was elected Vice-president, thereby dividing the senior
offices between the two sections of
the camp.
Mr. H. Lowry being selected, for
Numerous members of the League
were present, but there was room
for many more andjt is the desire
of the council that the members of
the League should attend these
meetings in full force so that the
council may know the opinion of
the people on any matter which
may be brought up. The council
are there to serve the community
and the co-operation of all members
is necessary and essential to obtain
the best results.
The .most important matter
brought up was that of the launching of a drive for new members.
The membership at present' is in
the neighbourhood of 450, and
there are something like 900 or
1000 names on the company payrolls. It was pointed out that the
membership fee was 50 cents per
month, that small amount surely
could not be the reason for people
not becoming members, for any
person imbued with the, real community spirit would not consider
that point whatever. The object
of the League is the greatest
amount of good for the greatest
number of the community and by
having every person in the community a member of the League may
that object be realized.
Work Proceeding at the
Dolly Varden Mine
Work on the raise that is being
driven to strike the new ore body
at the Dolly Varden mine, is still
going ahead, and ore is expected to
be struck now at any time. The
present working staff will be considerably increased as soon as ore is
encountered. The damage caused
by the recent storms on the railroad will be repaired and the work
will probably be done by contract.
More Ore is Located
at the Moose Mine
And Work is Being Rapidly
Pushed .(Ahead
Further evidence of the richness
of the mineral deposits of the
Kitsault Valley was shown last
week when high grade ore was
struck on the Moose property, by
Don Cameron.
The find was made in the lower
tunnel, in driving a crosscut, at a
distance of 140 feet from the portal.
The depth obtained is also 140 feet.
The cross-cut at present shows the
lead to be 18 feet in width, with
low grade on the foot-wall, and the
values increasing towards the hanging wall. The last five, feet of the
crosscut driven averages 34.2 ozs.
silver per ton and character samples have.assayed 240 ozs. silver
per ton. The width of the lead
has not yet been determined as
ore is still in sight, but work is
proceeding as rapidly as possible to
cut through the lead.
Considerable work has also been
done on the upper tunnel this
summer, which is at an elevation
of 2310 feet. Work was commenced on driving a tunnel and the
lead was encountered at a distance
of 30 feet. The lead was'then-
drifted on for 50 feet.   Samples of
ore that was taken on the whole of
the 50 feet shows an average of 21
ozs. silver per ton. Cross-cuts will
be driven on this lead to determine
the exact width of the ore. body,
which is estimated to be from ten
to twenty feet. The depth obtained on this ore body is 60 feet. The
lead has been traced on the surface
for a distance of 650, feet.
The Moose property has always
been regarded as one of the most
promising properties on the upper
Kitsault River. The work done
this summer proves conclusively
that it contains immense bodies of
ore and there is no doubt that the
work being now done will still
further prove the richness of the

to be congratulated on, the energetic manner in which they have

Naas River Trail.
The papers for petitioning the
government for highway connections
between Alice Arm and the Naas
Valley are now in circulation and
when they are completed will be
forwarded to Victoria. It is the
duty of every citizen in this district
to sign their names and help the
good work along. We started out
with the intention of persuading the
government to give us connections
with the Naas Valley and the
great interior of northern B. C.
and it is up to everyone to do
their utmost to bring it to a successful issue. Sign your name and get
others to sign and let us send a
petition to Victoria that will carry
some weight. Nearly all the newspapers and pediodicals of the
north have published news items
regarding the proposed road and
some have commented on it editorially, and it is conceded by all
that it is worthy of support. This
portion of the province has always
been neglected when appropriations
were made for roads and trails
and it is time we brought the fact
to the notice of the government.
If we don't bring these things to
their notice and point out to them
the advantages to be derived from
opening up this part of the province
they will naturally think we are
satisfied and that the district is
sufficiently supplied with roads and
trails. A certain amount of money
is spent every year on road and
trail work and if we have not got
enough energy to claim a fair share
of it, some other part of the
province that has a more progressive spirit will get it.
Anyox Community League.
The new councillors of the
immunity League have been
elected and have held their first
meeting. They have elected their
president and vice-president and
have apparently settled down to
business. We wish the present
council every success during their
term of office and trust that they
will use good sound judgement in
dealing with the different problems
that "arise. We also hope that
they will profit by the mistakes of
their predecessors and avoid unpleasantness at all times.
Anyox Liquor Store.
The one outstanding feature in
regard to the liquor store at Anyox
is that it has not been opened yet.
The trouble seems to be, who
shall be the vendor. If the people
of Anyox are going to squabble
about who is to hand out the
booze they, don't deserve a store
at all. It is evident the people of
Anyox are not very anxious to
have a liquor store, if they were
they would'nt quibble over who is
to stand behind the counter and
dish up the booze. Alice Arm is
the logical place for the liquor store,
it is an open town, a • prosperous
and growing town and a town
with a wonderful future, and Alice
Arm will guarantee to have the
store running within a week after it
is located there.
Good Times.
Don't walk around with a sour
look and a mournful expression.
Cheer up. Copper is rising in
price and so is silver. The present
depression has taught us one lesson;
economy. Profit by it when times
are good.
Recent Storms Does
Damage at Alice Arm
The two rain storms that visited
this district recently did considerable damage to the Dolly Varden
Railroad and the Government
trails and bridges, and also
menaced the town of Alice Arm.
The first storm struck the district on Sunday, October 2nd. and
was one of the heaviest rainfalls
ever experienced in the district.
It did considerable damage to the
Dolly Varden Railroad, Paul
Kladuc Creek bridge being washed
out and the bridge across West
Creek was severely damaged. It
also washed out cribbing along the
railroad and brought down several
slides. The Kitsault river rose five
feet in three hours on Sunday
evening and at 11 p.m. two feet of
water was running over the top of
the wing dam, which is situated a
short distance above the town.
Several families fearing the dam
would not hold, left their homes on
the flats and slept at the hotel,
which is situated on the hillside.
No sooner had everyone settled
down than another rainstorm hit
the district. It started on Wednesday, October 12 and continued
until Saturday morning. It was
at its worst on Friday night and
Saturday morning brought a
break in the clouds.
This storm added to the damage
already done by the previous one.
Numerous slides and washouts are
reported along the Dolly Varden
Railroad, the biggest slide being at
Mud Creek Canyon. The cable
and cage across the Kitsault River
at Alice Arm, was swept away.
Several slides are reported on the
Illiance River trail and two or
three bridges have been washed
out. About 2000 feet of trail has
also been washed out on the northeast fork of the Kitsault River.
The water *on Friday afternoon
again cominenoed to run over the
top of the wing dam above the
town, and, Friday night found
several families vacating their
homes to spend the night at the
hotel. At daylight on Saturday
morning a foot of water was flowing
over the top of the dam, but the
storm was breaking and the water
commenced to subside.
It was lucky for the residents of
Alice Arm that the dam held firm
and also the pile of driftwood at
the end of the dain. If either of
these had given way, it is certain
a , big proportion of Alice Arm
would have been washed out. The
dam is first-class, what there is of
it, and it proved that it can stand
a big volume of water, but it is not
long enough and had the pile of
drift wood at the end given way
nothing would have stopped the
river from cutting through and
flooding the town. The dam
should certainly be extended as
soon as possible and it should be
done in the winter when the water
is low in the river. If it is not
done the river will eventually
break through, and when it • does
a lot of valuable property will be
lost and possibly s»lso a number of

Bert Kergin is Back
|7rom His Northern Trip
Describes a Country of
Immense Possibilities
Mr, H. F. Kergin, M.L.A., arriv-
loine on Monday from his trip
trough the northern portion of
;he Atlin constituency. He left
'Mice Arm on September 3rd, and
.rrived home on October 10th.
lie had a very enjoyable trip and
l.he enormous recources of the
lorth was a revalation to him.
Following is an account of the
Ifirip as he related it himself:
I had a very enjoyable and inter-
listing trip. Arriving in Atlin on
(September 9th, via Skagway and
parcross. ,
The scenery all the way is very
[beautiful and in and about Atlin
[it   is   wonderful    Trips   can   be
jiuade to many points of interest
over tine motor roads in the latest
I(models of touring cars.   The coun-
J try is especially adapted for good
•jjroad making,' being mostly gravel
and   in   many   cases   needs   only
brushing out.   Placer mining was
(; in progress and I was assured that
the season was expected to be a
i successful one.
All kinds of game are very
j plentiful, including, moose, cariboo,
| sheep,   goat,   bear,   all   kinds   of
J grouse and rabbits, and the lakes
I are teeming with fish,
"I    It is truly a country of plenty
f and its scenery and glorious climate
is drawing an ever increasing
number of tourists oaoh year.
There is not one moment of hardship or monotony in the making of
the whole trip. The scenery is
varied and ever-changing, the
transportation is the best in the
world and the hotels are the last
word in comfort.
Lleft Atlin on September 27th.
and had intended to make a trip
into the Telegraph Creek Country
via Wrangell, but on account of,
bad weather the boat was late in
arriving at Wrangell and I lost
connections there. The boat up
the Stikine River left on the last
trip of the season. I was therefore
forced to abandoii my trip for this
The main industry is placer
mining and to date an enormous
quantity of gold has been produced,
but I believe that in that respect
the country is in its infancy yet.
Lode mining is making slow
progress on account of lack of
transportation, but it will only be
a matter of time when this district
will be one of the greatest mining
districts in the' world.
Another important industry is
fox farming, in fact I believe one
of the largest fox farms in Canada
is situated within four miles of the
town of Atlin.       •-■
The more I see of this large and
wealthy district which I have the
honor of representing in the Provincial Legislature the prouder I feel.
Phis electoral district will never
have to take second place to any in
the province. ,

Homestake Mine Closed
Down for Winter
The Homestake mine closed
down last week. The mine closed
down earlier than the management
expected and was due to the exceptional early fall of snow at the
Kitsault Glacier. The work done
on the property this summer has
been highly satisfactory. Ore was
encountered in the No. 1 tunnel at
a distance of 115 feet and ore was
in sight when operations ceased, so
that it is impossible to estimate the
size of the ore body.
It is the intention of the Home-
stake Mining Co. to commence operations next spring about the first
week in May and considerable development work will be undertaken
next summer.
Building Brisk at
Alice Arm
Several new buildings are in
course of construction and several
more are being built larger. ,
