Examination to be Made
Dolly Varden & Wolf
Col. Victor Spencer and D. Sloan
arrive in Alice Arm
A resumption of operations at the
Dolly Varden and Wolf mines
this summer depends entirely upon
the engineers' report, after an exhaustive examination has been
made stated Col. Victor Spenoer,
who arrived in Alice Arm on
Thursday accompanied by D. Sloan
a Vancouver mining engineer.
Col. Spencer stated that nothing
would give himself and brothers
greater pleasure than to take a
hand in developing the mineral
resources of this great north
country, and he hoped it would be
possible to do so. He said that
they were obtaining the best available advice on the matter and their
future plans would depend on the
result of the examination.
Mr. Slocum of Pennslyvania, a
mining engineer and geologist of
international repute will arrive
from the east on Monday and join
Col. Spencer and Mr. Sloan. The
former expects to stay here about
two weeks.
Mr. Sloan has had a wide experience in mining in British Columbia. He has recently spent considerable time in the Bridge River
district where he has successfully
developed some big silver lead deposits.
In reply to a question regarding
.'he construction of a concentrating
mill, and the mode of operation of
the railway, he stated that at the
present time no plans had been
made. These details would be
worked out at a later date.
[Drifting on Ore Veins
at Wolf Mine
Two ore veins, paralleling each
Lther, each averaging one foot wide
[ire now being drifted on at the
iTolf mine by J. Fvaand J. Peter-
bon. Both veins contain high
Ijrade silver ore, composed of brittle,
|iative and ruby silver.
Both veins are being mined at
Ihe same time one on each side of
Ihe drift. One vein has a dip of
Ibont 45 degrees and the other
B5 degrees. At the head of the
Irosscut tunnel these veins merged
pid it is probable do so again.
These veins will be followed to
I dyke whioh outs through them,
|nd then the stoping of ore will be
i&rried out.
Some beautiful looking ore is
Ieing mined, and when stoping
|>mmenoes a considerable tonnage
fill be quickly accumulated.
J The tramline and ore shed at the
lolly Varden railway are in readies for hauling ore. Ore oars will
liortly be installed at the mine.
I Mining is being oarried on in an
ftoient manner, and everything
Lints to a prolonged life for the
line, as the ore has been traced
, the surface for a great distance.
Singles are Victorious
in Ladies' Baseball
The married and single ladies
renewed hostilities this season on
the baseball diamond, when they
met on Wednesday evening, in a
torrid five inning battle with the
latter emerging on the long end
of a 15 to 6 count. There was a
huge orowd of fans present, all set
to enjoy the fun, but were rather
disappointed as the brand, of ball
was much better than last year
and in consequence the game was
much shorter. Strawberries and
cream were dispensed on the
grounds by the Ladies' Aid of the
Union Church, who were the
sponsors of the affair.
Phyllis.McMillan did the hurling
for the winners, setting up what
we believe is a world's record when
she set back thirteen of the opposition via the strike-out route.
Grace Stevens was the catcher.
Mrs. McTaggart twirled a nice
game for the losers and was also
good with the willow. Mrs. Crone
was the catcher. Walter Oleson
was the umpire and managed to
escape with all his hair in spite of
a few bad calls.
It was not known at the time
of writing, the amount realized by
the Ladies' Aid.

Anyox Miner Meets His
Death in Stope
A fatal accident occurred at the
Anyox mine on Friday June 4th
when Edward Carlson met his
death through falling from the top
of one of the stopes, where he
was working. He fell a distance
of 230 feet.
It is surmised that while extricating a drill he overbalanced, and
crashed to the bottom. On the
recovery of his body life was
extinct, deceased having suffered
severe injuries. His left leg and
arm were broken, abdomen punctured, lower jaw broken in three
places, and severe injuries to the
head.
Deceased was a native of Finland
and was aged 43 years.
At a coroner's inquest held on
Monday, after hearing and discussing all evidence a verdict of accidental death was returned.
The funeral was held on Monday
afternoon, burial taking place in
the cemetery. Rev. J. S. Brayfield
of the Anglican Churoh officiating.
J. Wheatley, J, Hanna and Ed.
Peterson left Alioe Arm on Thursday for Anyox. Mr. Wheatley has
a contract from the Granby Co. for
removing an electric hoist and one
mile of railway track from the new
dam.

Mine Piles up Heavy
Score Against Smelter
Old Sol finally deigned to smile
on the baseballers and the Mine
walloped the Smelter by a 13 to 4
count.
Bruce started on the mound for
the losers but was mild as a March
hare, nine runs being chalked up in
the first inning. Perry, a newcomer from New Westminster,
took up the burden in the second
frame, getting by nicely the five
innings he worked. Harris did the
pitching for the winners letting the
opposition down with five hits,
keeping them well scattered.. Gordon, another New Westminster
district league player, turned in a
nice game at second for the losers.
Umpires Olesen and Mcintosh.
SUMMARY
Runs Hits Errors
Mine 13 12 3
Smelter       4 5 7
Smelter Footballers Winning
The Smelter footballers put over
their fourth straight win on Friday
evening last week when they de-
defeated the Mine two goals to nil.
Varley and Powell were the goal
getters. Both teams played rather
indifferent football owing mainly
to the inclemency of the weather.
The winners were much more effective on the attack than the Miners,
having many more tries at the
goal. Baker Robertson was the
referee.
Attempted  Suicide  of
Locally Known Man
Jonas Nakki of Stewart, known
locally as John Wilson is being held
at Stewart pending trial for attempted suicide and is under medical observation regarding his
sanity.
Constable Frank Islip of the provincial police,'called to the Marmot
Hotel, Stewart found Nakki in a
room with his throat slashed on
both sides an artery severed and
his wrist slashed.
Indications were that the man,
after tlie first slashes undressed
and got into bed.
Until recently he was engaged
as a contractor at the Silverado
mine and previously worked at the
Premier. He has a brother in
Hyder Alaska and relatives in
Finland.
Discovers New Ore Ledge
A nice ledge of ore, carrying
good silver values has been located
in the Evindson Creek district by
Gus Pearson and A. Davidson, who
for the past two weeks have been
prospecting the upper Kitsault
country. The ledge is about 12
feet wide and can be traced on the
surface for a long distance.
It was first picked up on the
Red Point ground, and traverses
the Kitsault group towards the
Dolly Varden hill. It is on the
south side of Evindson creek, running in a south-easterly direction.
Steady Progress Made
In Alice Arm Mining
Industry
Mining conditions in the Alice
Arm district are steadily improving
and the coming months will undoubtedly witness a great expansion.
The chief cause for the present
wave of optimism prevailing is the
fact that the owners of the Dolly
Varden and Wolf mines, have
commenced to carry out their plans
formed last fall. These properties
will be examined by mining engineers and on their report depends
the future policy of the company.
The operation of the Dolly Varden and Wolf will give considerable impetus to the mining industry, and the successful operation of these two properties will
spell success for the whole district.
Toric Mill Progressing
The Consolidated Homestake
Mining and Development Co. who
are operating the Toric mine are
making progress with their 50 ton
mill which will be operating this
year.
LaRose Outlook Bright
The LaRose mine, whose spectacular ore discovery last year
aroused the whole district, is improving with each round of holes.
Enough ore has now been proven
up to guarantee steady shipments,
and further development will undoubtedly increase the tonnage.
Development work on the LaRose
has hardly commenced, and what
the ultimate tonnage and values
will be no one can foresee. From
the amount of development work
done to date surprising results have
been attained, and if this record
is maintained the LaRose will rank
as a big producer, and become one
of tho big assets of the district.
Work Commenced Matilda
Development work was commenced this week on the Matilda property by the Kitsault River Alining
& Development Co. The first work
undertaken will be the extension
of the Fox tunnel. The Matilda
possesses large bodies of ore carrying gold, silver, lead, copper and
zinc values, aud is situated in a
rich mineral zone.
Keystone Co. Commences
The Keystone Mining Co. operating on Roundy Creek, plans an
early commencement of an extensive development programme. A
crew of men are at present improving the trail, and the transporting
of supplies and machinery lo the
mine will be the next work
undertaken.
Esperanza May Expand
Plans are being outlined
for an expansion of operations
at the Esperanza, and that unique
mine with an enviable past record
and a bright future will perhaps
become one of the district's important producers.
Other mining properties will
commence their summer's programme of development work in
the near future, and at the present
time the outlook for the mining
industry is more promising than
for many years. Developing a
quartz mining camp, however, is
necessarily slow, unforeseen obstacles are encountered which
sometimes retard rapid progress. ALICE   ARM  AND   ANYOX   HERALD,   Saturday.   June   12,   1926

E. MOSS, Editor and Publisher.
Fred Stork, federal member of
parliament for this district is certainly not a silent member, but
believes in keeping his colleagues
and opponents informed of his
presence. He also is a firm believer in promulgating the resources
of this great district, which he
did in a brilliant speech, given in
the House on May 7th, a copy of
which we have just received.
Fred dealt with a multitude pf
questions, both local and national.
He complimented the minister of
finance, Mr. Robb on his splendid
budget, and in reviewing the
lowered duty on automobiles, substantiated his arguments by quoting
Henry Ford who said he was a
free trader. He gave evidence of
the benefits accruing to British
Columbia by the Australian treaty
and then dealt at length with the
fishing industry of the north. Mr.
Stork defended strongly the building of the grain elevator at Prince
Rupert, and predicted that it would
shortly be exporting grain, and the
ships returning would be loaded
with the produce of the Orient.
Whatever our reader's views are on
political matters, it must be admitted that in Fred Stork we have a
member who is capable of attending to our interests, and taking an
active part in the governing of the
Dominion.

The recently published annual
report of the Granby Consolidated
Mining Smelting and Power Co.
Ltd. makes cheerful reading. It
shows that during the past year,
great progress has been made and
that the hard battle for existence
made during the past eight years
is commencing to be won. The
Granby Co. have travelled a rough
road, but the macadam seems to be
almost reached, the grades do not
appear to be as steep as formerly,
and the following years will probably witness the company riding
alongside the best of continent's
copper producers. The Granby
Co. are to be complimented for the
tenacity they have displayed in
operating under extreme difficulties
during the past few years. Few
mining companies have been called
upon for such an ordeal, and everyone in the north wish them all
success during the coming years.
The Granby Co. are numbered
among the big industrial concerns
of the province and their success
or failure is of vital importance.
Since they commenced mining in
British Columbia they have expended millions of dollars in wages
and supplies, and will spend millions more. Everyone benefits for
these dollars filter through every
line of industry. The operating
costs last year reached the enormous total of $5,086,858.42 while
taxes and insurance claimed $389,-
577.38. This money was put
into circulation in the province and
it was derived from the body of
low grade copper ore at Hidden
Creek mine. Thus is wealth
created, for the benefit of mankind
and particularly British Columbia.

Unemployment in Canada
Decreasing
Employment in Canada is nin-
ft'ing well above the figures for the
past five years, according to the
Dominion Bureau of Statistics,
whioh states that despite unseason-'
able weather at the beginning of
May, 23,148 persons were added
to the staffs of 5,866 firms reporting, who employed 773,417 workers.
On May 1, the index number stood
at 94.3 as compared with 91.4 on
April 1, and with 90.8 91.8, 83.3
and 84.1 on May 1,1925,1924,1923
1922 and 1921 respectively.
Crop Outlook Good
Crop conditions throughout the
prairie provinces at May 25 were
very bright, according to the sixth
weekly report of the Canadian
National Railway at Winnipeg.
Rain and snow had been fairly
general the previous week, providing sufficient moisture for immediate needs. Very little damage
from any source was reported and
wheat was showing a strong,
healthy growth, as high as six
inches iu Manitoba.
Oil in Alberta Established
With a single well produoing oil
of exceptionally high quality at the
rate of 140,000 barrels a year, the
value of the oil resources at southern Alberta seems about to be
established. This well is the largest producing well in Canada.
Red Lake   Mining   Division
Extended
The Ontario Department of
Mines has decided to increase the
area of the Red Lake mining division by adding on the coast all the
territory as far as the boundary line
between the districts of Kenora
and Thunder Bay, also by making
. the south line run along the Canadian National raihyay line until it
strikes Wabigoon river, thence
down the river to the English
river and down the English to the
Ontario-Manitoba line. A slight
deflection in the south boundary is
>iade where the township of Rowell
is reached so as to include this
township and west. The added
area includes Woman Lake and
Biroh Lake, from both of which
plaoer gold has been reported.
Canada the Great
In estimated national wealth in
millions of dollars, Canada stands
seventh on the list, higher than
Australia, Brazil, Argentina and
in fact higher than any of the newer
countries into which surplus population can freely flow. Dr. D. A.
MacGibbon, professor of political
economy, University of Alberta
stated reoently. In wealth per
capita Canada is only surpassed by
the United States and Great Brit'
Sin. continuing Canada is among
the only five nations showing a
surplus on current account, and is
also among those countries having
a food surplus. She ranks fifth
among the nations as an exporter
and seventh as an importer.
N. Railways will Shortly
Show Profit
In an address at the annual banquet of the Canadian National
employees at Toronto recently, Sir
Henry Thornton, president of the
system, said that before long sooner
than most people think, the
National Railways will not only be
self-sustaining, but will also return
a profit to the publio treasury. Sir
Henry also commented on the
growing regard in which the public
was holding the service of the system and attributed the achievement of this goodwill to the loyalty
of the employees.
Several sheep raisers from the
United States have recently made
extensive purchases of land in the
interior of British Columbia. Sheep
raising on a large scale will be conducted in territory previously considered suitable only to the cattle
industry.

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 lias 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
Survey of Canada, Winch Building, Vancouver, are recommended as valuable sources of information.
Full information, together with Mining Reports and Maps^nay be obtained gratis by addressing
