Ore Vein on Vanguard
Is Almost Ten Feet
The copper ore vein on the Vanguard which was encountered last
week has been cut through and is
proven to be 9 feet 8 inches wide.
The whole vein is composed of a
high grade chalcopyrite ore, and its
encountering at a depth of 200 feet
is a source of great satisfaction.
The vein is now being drifted on
along the foot wall in order to
ascertain the extent of the ore shoot
The, drift is now in 25 feet, and the
ore is equally as rich as that encountered in the crosscut tunnel.
Development work on the Red
Point which is also being developed
by the Victor Spencer interests, is
proceeding with all possible rapidity.
A new tunnel has been started at a
higher elevation than the main one,
and it is confidently expected
that ore will shortly be encountered,
This tunnel is being driven about
100 feet below the surface showings.
The main tunnel is being pushed
New Alice Arm Business
Block Occupied
The big business block which has
been under construction by T. W.
Falconer during the summer was
occupied by him during the week,
the bulk of supplies being moved
from the old store on Wednesday.
This block stands at the intersection of Main Street and First
Avenue. It is two stories in height.
The ground floor comprises the
store with a room at the rear for
storing surplus supplies. The upper
floor contains a large hall, suitable
for winter sports, meetings or
dances, and also commodious living
The best of lumber was used in
construction, and the whole building
both interior and outside is painted
and varnished, presenting a very
attractive appearance. The interior
is lined with cottonwood veneer
painted a cream color.
The completion of this block
marks another step towards more
substantial buildings in Alice Arm,
and also shows how one of the
leading business men regard the
future of the camp.
Fast Time Made Vanguard
The contractors, who hkve been
driving the tunneloh the Vanguard
completed their contract during the
week and arrived in town yesterday.
They are Neil Forbes, Fred Martinson, Leo Paulcer, Jack Collins,
Wm. McFarlane. Plans have
been made so that underground
work will go on uninterruptedly.
Record time was made
in driving the 274 feet of tunnel.
The total time being 56 days or an
average of almost 5 feet per day.
All work was done by hand.

Changes in C. N. Steam
Ship Schedule Start
Next Week
Notice of the change in the
schedule of the C. N. Steamships
has been received from Prince
Rupert and is as follows:
"Owing to the fact that it has
been necessary to drydock the S.
S. "Prince Rupert" we have
replaced this steamer with the S.
S. "Prince Charles", which will
arrive in Anyox, Friday evening
September 2nd, and sail for Prince
Rupert via. Stewart that evening,
transferring her passengers to the
S. S. "Prince George" there, which
steamer sails from Prince Rupert
for Vancouver Saturday evening,
September 3rd.
The fall schedule will be inaugurated by theS. S. "Prinoe George"
sailing from Anyox for Vancouver
via Ketchikan and Prince Rupert
on Wednesday, September 7th, at
midnight, and eaoh Wednesday
thereafter until the end of September."
After this date it is expected
that the boats will operate on the
same schedule as last year, arriving
at Anyox on Thursday and leaving
for the south the same day at
1 p.m.
Returns from an Extended
Prospecting Trip
A. Davidson and Gus. Pearson
arrived back in Alice Arm on Tuesday from a prospecting trip that
took them across the Naas River.
Theobject of their tripwas to explore
a country seen by A. Davidson fifteen years ago in the Naas Valley.
It however, proved barren as far as
minerals were concerned. They encountered a district in the Naas
composed of boulders melted
together with lava rock, and brought
home several small specimens. The
wonderful growth of vegetables and
fruit greatly exceeded their expectations. During their stay they
were regaled with corn on the cob
and the many fruits cultivated in the
Happy Throng Attend Dance
The dance held at the Alice Arm
Hotel on Saturday night, was all
that could be desired. A large
number were present and a first class
orchestra kept the dancers busy
throughout the evening. One dance
followed the Other in quick succession, and it was a tired but happy
throng who wended their way home
after the strains of the Home Waltz
had died away.
Log Carrying Barges Leave
for South
The tug Lome arrived in Alice
Arm on Monday and left the following morning at 4 a.m. towing the
log carrying barges, Bingaman and
Pazuta. Both barges were loaded

Whether the price be twelve or
fourteen cents, and without regard
to production curves, new and ex
panding utilitarian and artistic uses
for copper are increasingly apparent. Labor costs are so high that
it pays to use the best material
In New York City one notes in the
great "cathedrals" of the motion
picture tons of doors and grill
work in bronze or brass, and window framing is of pure copper
sheeting. Evidently architects
have belatedly come to understand
that copper is one of the greatest
and most versatile servants that
Nature has placed under man's
command. Even the window and
door framing and trim in small
stores and buildings is to an ever
increasing extent formed by sheet
copper, which many artisans have
found more easily worked than
other metals or wood. Publicity
has helped the cause, obviously,
especially in home building, but
the increasing preference for copper in general building construction
is based largely on a wider appreciation of the many virtues-
workability, sightliness, and above
all, durability—possessed by the
metal in its pure and alloyed
Steel alloyed with some copper
possesses in a large degree the excellences of both metals. Its use
should expand in construction jobs
of all sorts. Makers of furniture
may profit by a consideration of
the desirability of copper-steel as
framework for chairs, tables, and
beds. Its resistance to oxidation
provides advantages not possessed
by iron and steel frames. The
natural beauty of the metal, its
cheapness, and its growing popularity assure an expanding adoption for such artistic objects as
candlesticks, trays, and numerous
other household accessories, No
matter how often the copper pitcher goes to the well, it is never,
broken.—Engineering and Mining
Those who find it inconvenient
to leave on Monday for the Prince
Rupert exhibition can avail themselves of the departure on Wednesday of the S. S. Prinoe Charles.
This boat arrives in Prinoe Rupert

Stampede can be obtained.
Scandinavian Countries
Rich in Iron Ore
One-tenth of the iron ore resources of Europe lie in the north, in
Sweden, Norway, and Finland.
From these countries comes about
15 per cent of Europe's iron-ore
production, and within their borders are some of the largest known
deposits of magnetite ore. In them
the iron industry has not been
greatly developed. In fact this
northern iron industry is practic
ally confined to Sweden. About
90 per cent of all of the iron ore
mined in the Scandinavian countries is exported to Germany,
England, Belgium, the United
States, and elsewhere.
Sweden is by far the largest
producer of iron ore, its production
being from 5,000,000 to 10,000,000
tons annually, of which 3,500,000
to 8,500,000 tons is exported. The
country produces from 500,000 to
800,000 tons of pig iron per year.
Norway mines from 300,000 to
700,000 tons of iron ore each year,
all of which is exported. Finland
has practically no production of
importance as yet.
Steamer   Prince   Rupert
Injured Going South
Striking an unknown object
southbound the steamer Prince
Bupert sustained a broken rudder
in Seymour Narrows early last
week. She was assisted to a safe
anchorage in Plumper Bay by the
steamer Cardena on which the
Prince Rupert's passengers then
proceeded to Vancouver.
The Prince Rupert has gone into
drydock for repairs and her place
this week has been taken by the
steamer Prince Charles.
Phoenix Photograph of 1906
Shows Local Men
A recent Sunday edition of the
Vancouver Province published a
history of the town of Phoenix.
This was the town in which the
Granby Co. had its big mines, and
whose ore was smelted at Grand
Forks. The article was illustrated
with several photographs one of
which was of special interest to
many in Anyox. It showed the
prize drilling team of 1906 and in
it were J. Swanson and J. Peacock
now of Anyox mine.

Lode mining has only been in progress for about 25 years, and only about one-half of the Province has
been even prospected; 200,000 square miles of unexplored mineral bearing land are open for prospecting.
The Mining Laws of this Province are more liberal and the fees'lower than those of any other Province
in the Dominion, or any Colony in the British Empire.
Mineral locations are granted to discoverers for nominal fees.
Absolute Titles are obtained by developing such properties, security of which is guaranteed by
Crown Grants.
Practically all British Columbia Mineral Properties upon which development work has been done
are described in some one of the Annual Reports of the Minister of Mines. Those considering
mining investments should refer to such reports. They are available without charge on application
to the Department of Mines, Victoria, B. C. Reports covering each of the six mineral Survey
Districts are published separately, and are available on application. Reports of the Geological

There is talk of trying out a new
leaching prooess oil the Indian
mines, Portland Canal distriot. It
is reported that leaohing of Indian
ore, which is lead and zinc, was
successful in a laboratory test.
The Board of Trade points out
that Canada, with a population of
9,300,000, has a mineral production
equal in value to that of the United
States when its population was
38,000,000. Our manufacturing
production equals that of the
United States when its population
was 50,000,000.

United States are paid by mines or
It was the first counoil meeting
the new distriot councillor had
attended, and he listened gravely
to the report of the medioal offioer,
the statistics in which frankly
puzzled him. For example, owing
to the typhoid epidemic the deaths
for the month had been at the rate
of "fifteen point five." What on
earth did "point five mean?
In his perplexity he sought the
advice of a fellow-councillor, whose
long experiences of local government matters seemed to promise
"Oh, that's easy enough." said
the veteran. "Fifteen point five
means fifteen dead and five at the
point of death."
"So this baby is a girl?" beamed
the rector, as he walked round the
baby show.
The proud father assented.
"And this other one—is it of the
contrary sex?"
His wife's eye was on him, but
with no thought of the wrath to
come, he replied, blithly, "Yes,
she's a girl, too."
A military expert predicts that
the next war will be fought by
wireless. From what we heard
the other night, we had the impression that it had started.
Away back in the late sixties thousands of
acres of British Columbia's timber were
sold for one cent per acre, which looked
like a lair price—then. To-day similar
timber is worth from $150 to $200 an acre,
so tremendously has timber appreciated in
value within the scope of an average lifetime.
What the young growth of to-day will be
worth sixty years from now is beyond computation if it is protected from fire   and
allowed to reach maturity.
The moral is obvious

Success at Alice Arm
Attracts Attention
Alice Arm is experiencing much
activity in the mining industry this
year. Properties that are extracting ore or being developed by
mining companies are the Toric,
Esperanza, Wolf, Vanguard, Red
Point, Eagle, Silver Cord, LeRoy
and Keystone. The first three are
shipping mines while the others are
being rapidly developed to a shipping stage. Negotiations are underway for the acquiring of additional
properties in the district by influential mining companies.
The phenominal large surface
showings; the success in striking
these ore bodies underground and
the geological formation, together
with the excellent transportation
system and the nearness of the
district to tide water, is instrumental in a greater interest being taken
in the camp by mining companies
who desire value for their money:
