Keystone Property is
Developing Into
Producer
Work on the Keystone property,
situated on Roundy Creek about
four miles from Alice Arm is being
pushed with vigor. This property
is being developed by the Keystone
Mining Co. Ltd., who have every
reason to expect that further development will be instrumental in
phioing another property on the
shipping list.
At the present time work is
being concentrated in driving the
new tunnel commenced this summer. This tunnel is 250 feet vertically below the old workings. It
is now in 210 feet from the portal.
It is being driven on the ore body,
and the face is in mineral. A
crosscut is now being driven to
ascertain the exact size of the ore
body.
Mr. H. Bowyer, of Seattle, manager of the company who recently
spent considerable time examining
the property, was highly pleased
with the excellent showings of ore,
and the rapid progress made in
development work this summer.
The Keystone is a property
which has all the earmarks of
being developed into a substantial
producer. The chief minerals are
, lead, zinc, silver and gold in the
' order named. The j occur in quartz
veins, and are associated with pyrite
pyrrhotite and arseuopyrite.
Development work is being done
on a strong and well defined fissure
vein, that outs both the argillite
and granite formations, and can be
traced for several claim lengths.
It has a north-south strike with' a
dip to the west of about 45 degrees.
The property comprises 13 claims
and two fractions, and the distance
from salt water to the present
workings does not exceed 1| miles
in an air line. An aerial tramline
to transport ore and supplies is
contemplated as soon as ore
reserves will justify its installation.
An abundance of hydro-electric
power is obtainable from Roundy
and Lime creeks, and this power
will be harnessed as conditions
warrant.
A first class camp has been built
this year, comprising three larg&
buildings, blacksmith shop etc.,
affording excellent accomodation
for the 9 men employed.
G. C. Griffiths, a mining man of
wide experience is in charge of
operations, and he is capable of
doing a large amount of work at
a minimum cost.
The Keystone has everything in
its favor for the rapid development
of a tonnage producer and a dividend payer. It has some exceptionally good ore bodies. The formation is ideal. It is almost on tide
water, with an abundance of water
power and timber available for
all purposes.

booklets, published by the Alice
Arm branch of the B. C. Chamber
of Mines, and printed locally in the
Herald printing office, were received
by people of Alice Arm and Anyox
during the week.
Readers of the booklet were
impressed by the mass of valuable
information contained in the thirty-
two pages, which also include six
illustrations, and one on the cover.
The reading matter is carried under
the following headings: "General
Description," "A Short History,"

exploring the pretty countryside,
some going as far afield as the
Dolly Varden and Toric mines,
The finest of weather prevailed
and quite a number of those present
experienced the pleasure of spending a week-end at Alice Arm.

Anyox Scouts Enjoy the
Camp Life in South
The Anyox troop of Boy Scouts
who left for Roberts Creek on
S. S. Cardena on August 2nd.
returned home on Monday. The
boys were highly elated with their
first experience of camp life and
are already looking forward with
enthusiasm and keenest anticipation of making another visit south
next year. The bovs landed in
Vancouver on Thursday August
5th. They were escorted to the
Vancouver Exhibition by Scoutmaster Murdoch where they had
ample time to view all the principal exhibits. They left for Roberts
Creek on Friday morning, arriving
there they found over 100 boys in
camp from Vancouver and a troop
from Britannia Mine. They were
greeted and welcomed to the camp
by Norman H. Saunders organizing secretary for the Vancouver
Scout association; also by Jim T.
Hunter convenor of the camp
committee of the Rotary Club.
The boys were soon made at home
and acquainted in their new
surroundings.
The days in camp were spent in
scoutcraft, scout games and all
manner of outdoor sports,
Four Anyox boys were successful in passing for the Pioneer badge
The examination was conducted by
by Norman H. Saunders and the
following boys were promoted.
Troop Leader A. Teabo. Patrol
Leader W. Cloke. Second D. McAllister. Second S. Barclay. Many
humorous experiences can be rehted
in connection with the answers
given to the examiner. One boy
was asked to tie a fisherman's knot
This particular knot is used by
fishermen to tie the lines to the
catgut or leaders which the hooks
are secured to. He tied the knot
and the examiner then asked what
the knot was used for, the reply
was that it was used by "fishermen
to tie their guts together."
The scoutmaster and his C.O.H.
wish at this time to thank all
those who helped them to make
this trip possible.
Miners & Smelter Share
Play-off Honors
Two games of the play-off series
have been played to date, the
Smelter winning the first encounter
by an eight to one count. Beaulieu
on the mound for the winners was
in superb form and was accorded
bang up support by his teammates.
He allowed only five scattered
blows and fanned four. Orr was
on good form also, but five big
miscues were rung up against his
support. Orr fanned five and was
nicked for seven hits, Chenosk
was the big man with the stick
with two doubles. Halverson
contributed a nice three-base clout,
Wendell was the fielding star when
he handled seven chances in the
short field without a miscue.
The Miners took the second
game of the series on Wednesday
evening to the tune of nine runs to
three. The winners led all the
way, and had their opponents
completely outclassed. Batteries
were, for the mine; Orr and Lane.
For the Smelter, Beaulieu and Mo-
Dougall. Umpires, Sinclair and
Smith.
Much Business Disposed
Chamber of Mines
Meeting
A meeting of the Alice Arm
branch of the British Columbia
Chamber of Mines was held at the
Coliseum on Monday evening, at
which a record amount of business
was disposed of.
In the absence of the President
and Vice-President, the Chair win
taken by Harry Smith. Secretary
A. D. Yorko read the minutes of
the previous meeting which were
approved,
The Chairman then called for a
eport of the Publicity Committee
and owing to the unavoidable
ibsence of R. Armour, secretary
of the committee, the report was
made by H. Fowler, chairman.
Mr. Fowler stated that the committee had held 14 or 15 meetings
each having a duration of about
two hours. Considerable time had
been spent by the members of the
committee in compiling data, for
the recently published booklet.
Everything entering into the booklet had been discussed in detail,
and the result of their labors was a
32-page book, containing six illustrations. He felt sure that its
distribution would get results, and
trusted that the members would be
satisfied with the work of their
committee.
He stated that the book would
be distributed among members of
the mining fraternity throughout
North America and Loudon, England, and would be received by
numbers who had not yet visited
the camp.
He wished to thank the Hon.
Win Sloan, Minister of Mines for
his valuable assistance, in various
ways, and also "Resources" magazine of Prince Rupert, for the loan
of illustration plates, and Geo. A.
Clothier, resident mining engineer
for his instructive article relative
to the mining industry of the
district. A vote of thanks to the'
publicity committee for their
excellent work, was made by Al.
Falconer, seconded by G. W.
Bruggy.
Chairman H. Smith made a few
comments on the book, in which he
assured the meeting that it was a
credit to the community, and would
undoubtedly be a great assistance
in the more rapid development of
the camp. He also stated that
typographically, it was perfect, and
reflected great credit on the Herald
Press, who printed it in their local
plant.
H. F. Kergin stated that the
book was probably the most inexpensive that had been published.
Several important items had been
supplied gratis, and considerable
time had been freely given by
members of the committee. He
also explained how the books
would be distributed so that the
best results could be attained.
O. Gray was of the opinion that
the publishing of the book was the
best thing the people of Alice Arm
had done for the furthering of the
mining industry and cited several
instances where it would rectify a
former wrong impression of the
camp.
The matter of forwarding an ore
display to tli9 Prince Rupert Exhibition was brought up, and after
some discussion it was resolved that
the secretary write to the Chamber of Mines at Vancouver, and
ascertain if it was possible to ship
the Vancouver display.
It was decided to hold the
annual election of officers on Monday September 6th, and everyone
is requested to be present. ALICE   ARM   AND   ANYOX   HERALD,   Friday,   August   27th.   1926

The publication of the booklet,
describing the mineral resources
of the Alice Arm district; its mineral production, and its vast possibilities, brings to light what can be
done, when the instigators have
the support of the community, and
when they have resolved to carry
the project to a successful issue.
The appeal for funds to defray
expenses has been very gratifying
and no difficulty is expected in
obtaining sufficient money to complete the work of mailing etc.
Alice Arm has taken a step in
the right direction in order to gain
recognition in mining circles as a
big potential producer of metals.
It is a step that may possibly lead
to a rejuvenation of mining on a
big scale in the district. It is
money well spent, from which
everyone in the community stands
an equal chance of reaping the
rewards.
Stampede John Strikes
Rich Ore in North
The Alice Arm branch of the
British Columbia Chamber of
Mines, is the only organization in
town operating for the public
welfare. Meetings are held from
time to time, at which business is
discussed that is of vital importance
to all. While some good attendances at some meetings have been
recorded, there have been others
that has been very meagre. The
non-attendance of a large number
of citizens is simply due to indiffer-
"Stampede John," well known in
Alice Arm and every mining camp
in the west, has struck it rich in the
north. The following' is purl of an
article published in the Portland
Canal News of Stewart, where he
lately arrived.
"Bringing 300 pounds of ore samples, every one of which shows free
gold, J. O. Strenbratcn, known
from Mexico to Keno Hill in the
Yukon country by the name of
"Stampede John," and Wm, Bunting, of Hyder who with "Scotty"
Dilworth, made the original locations of claims now comprising the
Premier mine, returned Tuesday
morning from the Porcupine district
in the extreme northwest portion of
British Columbia.
"Early    last   summer Stcnbratcn |
went into that section in an endeav-j
or to locate the source of the placer I
gold found in the Porcupine district I
and he was successful.     Returning
to  this  camp  he  interested   Win,
Bunting in his  find  and  the latter
has spent the past two months there
lending his 30  years  of  experience
and practical  hard-rock  knowledge
to the task of tracing out and  thoroughly  sampling  the   vein.     This
was a comparatively easy matter, as
the property lies above  timber line,
at an  elevation  of  4500 feet,   and
carries no overburden;  in fact  the
outcroppings of the vein may be seen
for a distance of 6000 feet,   striking-
east and west and lying on a granite and lime contact."

In order for an organization to
flourish and expand and create new
ideas it is necessary that its meetings must be well attended, so that
the business can be thoroughly discussed and the members conversant

gives the officers redoubled energy

Mining Institutes Will
Hold Meetings Spokane
and Cranbrook
The Joint Meeting of the Canadian
Institute of Mining & Metallurgy
and the American Institute of Mining & Metallurgical Engineers will
take place in Spokane and Cranbrook
and it is anticipated with considerable interest. It is the first meeting
of the kind that has been held in
the west, although in the past the
two Institutes have on frequent
occasions held Meetings' in common
in the east. r
The opportunity was afforded by
the decision to hold the Annual
Western Meeting of the Canadian
Institute this year in British Columbia, while the regional meeting of
the Northwest Sections of the
American Institute had been planned
I to take place about the same date.
In the circumstances the proposal to
meet in common was a natural
outcome of the friendly relationships
existing between the two Societies.
An excellent programme of papers
has been arranged which will include the following:
The Examining Engineer and
Mining Industry, by J, D. Galloway.
Electrical prospecting at the
Britannia Mine, by Jas. I. Moore,
[ and F. Ebbutt.
Mining in Warfare, by Augus W.
Davis.

Accidents on ladders are nearly all
preventable, yet last year alone 129
workmen suffered injuries from this
cause. It cost employers $13,654.18
to pay time loss compensation during the period of disability. Eight
of these workmen were left permanently disabled; at a further cost
of $23,379.42 making a total outlay
by employers in 1925 of $37,032.60
on account of ladder accidents.

A general invitation to mining
men throughout the province,
whether they are members of the
Institute or not, to attend the meeting is extended; but as Hotel accomodations both in Spokane and
Cranbrook may be limited, those
desiring to take advantage of this
invitation are requested to communicate accordingly with Mr. Mortimer Lamb, Division Secretary of the

THE TRUTH
ABOUT PURE BEER
IN the past several years the public has
been told many things about beer, yet it
is not surprising that many people should
not know what beer really is, for the merits
of pure beer have been almost entirely neglected by controversionalists.
Pure beer is a scientifically made malt solution, derived from malted barley and flavored with hops. In ihis malted condition
the grain is much more nourishing than in
its natural state and the beer has many beneficial activities when taken as a beverage.
In the first place pure beer is in itself a
complete food, rich in proteins, maltose
and dextrin, mineral salts and organic
phosphorous compounds. It is superior
to either cider or wine in its nourishing
qualities. Consumed at the rate of
