Plans Being Made
To Operate
The Mohawk property will be
operated next summer, by a newly
formed company, if plans now being
formulated are successful.
The Mohawk is situated on
Roundy Creek, in the vicinity of the
Keystone. On it is located one of
the best high gracie silver veins in
tho camp. This lias been partially
developed but was never concluded.
The Mohawk was acquired from
J. Wells and F. Juggins, original
owners, by G. 14. Naden of Prince
Rupert and associates in 1911.
Mr. Naden is now Deputy Minister
of Lands. In the fall of 1911 they
commenced development work, and
sunk a shaft on the ore ledge. A
drift was driven on the ore a distance of 135 feet. The ore vein
was proved to be 2 feet wide and
composed of very high grade ore.
Owing to lack of finances, work
was suspended in April 1912, and
since that time no work of importance has been done.
A company known as the Winnie
Mines Holdings Co. Ltd. was
recently organized by Mr. Dave
Thomson of Prince Rupert to take
over the Mohawk from G. 14.
Naden and associates. This has
been done, and it is the intention
of Mr. Thomson to organize a new
company for the purpose of developing the property early next
summer. Mr. Thomson, who was
in Alice Arm last week, made an
examination of the property and
was well pleased with everything
he saw.
The Mohawk is situated about
four miles down the inlet from Alice
Arm. It is within easy distance of
tidewater. Mining and transportation costs will thus be reduced to a
minimum, which is an' asset of
considerable importance.
Topographical Mapping
Survey Completed
R. Bartlett, who was in charge
of the topographical survey part)'
here during the summer, left on
Saturday for Ottawa.
Assisting Mr. Bartlett in his work
were several students of the Uni
versity of B. C. The work in
which they were engaged was the
mapping of an area in the Illiance
river valley as far as Copper Creek,
the North-East Fork valley to its
headwaters, and the Kitsault river
valley north as far as Homestead
Owing to the fact that a part of
the work depended on photograph-
ical methods, progress was considerably delayed, due to so much
foggy and cloudy weather.
Mr. Bartlett was unable to state
whether further work of this nature
will be undertaken in the Alice Arm
li district next year.
Granby Co. To Disburse
Nearly Half Million
Next Month
Granby Consolidated Mining,
Smelting & Power Co. will disburse
a quarterly dividend of $449,998 on
November 1 to stockholders of
record on October 13. This will be
at the rate of $1 a share, according
to Logan & Bryan, and will increase
the grand total to $11,672,916.
Granny reported deficits in each
of the last eight years, after deductions had been made for depletion
and depreciation, the depletion
amounting to about $1,800,000
each year for the last seven years.
In 1927 the net income before
these deductions was $1,429,000.
The profit and loss on the balance
sheet is $4,017,702, according to a
recent eastern report. In the first
half of this year the net earnings
were $1,301,200 before depletion
and depreciation reductions. This
is comparable with $907,500 for the
same period of 1927. The principal
properties of the Granby are near

Elks' Lodge Will Stage
Minstrel Show
A Minstrel Show is to be present
ed in the near future by the local
order of Elks, according to plans
formulated at a recent meeting.
The project has been under informal
discussion for some time, but no
innouncement was made until a,
positive decision had been reached.
A canvass of the membership, both
of the Lodge and the community
at large, reveals the fact that so
far as talent is concerned they are
well equipped for the endeavor. A
committee on arrangements has
been appointed and rehearsals wil

Business Items Disposed Of
P. T. A. Meeting
Numerous small items of business
were despatched at the last meeting
of the P. T. A. Mrs. Cloke was
given charge of all costumes and
stage properties belonging to the
association. The Corresponding
Secretary, Miss Richards, and the
Treasurer, Mrs. Patrick, were each
allowed five dollars for incidental
expenses, and towels for the refreshment committee and stationery for
the secretaries was ordered purchased. Miss Anne McLachlan
delighted the assembly with pianoforte selections.
Preparations Made For Big
Carnival on 23rd.
Men are engaged at the gymnasium building booths and making
other preparations for the big carnival on Tuesday 23rd. The Committee in charge is keeping dark
many of the features which are on
the program. It is safe to say that
every one will get a run for his
money. Meanwhile the paint is
drying on the badminton courts and
the basketball fittings are being put
in place. These sports will get
under way as soon as the floor is
again cleared.
Anyox Duck Hunters Having
Busy Season
With the advent of the hunting
season, local water craft are busy
transporting hunters to the ducks'
haunts. On Sunday, J. J. Beckett,
C. S. McLachlan, and James Wil-j
son in the "Wanderer" got a few.
Early on Tuesday morning a large
party set out for the haunts of the
honker and it is expected that
some local records will be broken.
Included in the party, were: Geo.
Lee, W. A. Gigot, A. S. Baillie,
CO. Fricker, J. Swanson. Chas.
There Will be a  Fathers'
Night at_P. T- A.
The regular October meeting of
the Anyox P. T. A. held on Monday, spent some time discussing the
program for the year. After considerable debate^ the general topic,
"Education—its aims, methods,
and results" was selected and speakers will be invited to deal with different aspects of this. An effort
will be made to enrol a larger number of men in the association and to
this end a Fathers' Night will be
held in January.' In February the
Association will, as formerly, arrange a dance. The concert by the
school children given at Christmas
will this year be managed by the
teaching staff. The P. T. A. will

Essay Competition Will Be
Owing to the lack of information
regarding conditions, the P. T. A.
has dropped the Goodwill Day
Essay Competition . which was
postponed from April to November.
Instead a committee comprising
Mrs. McMaster, Miss Griffith and
Mr. Hartley was directed to assemble suggestions for another
competition. Mr. Miller, local
agent for McLean's Magazine, was
present in the interests of the competition now being conducted on the
story of Canada's war effort. Mr.
Hartley suggested that, in view of
the short time now available, the
essay be left to individual pupils.

school are gay with plant life these

Rice, president of the Alice Arm
Junior Sports Association, who
also made a few well chosen remarks.
J. Stark, on behalf of those present, thanked Mr. Greenaway for
the evening's entertainment.
A poster competition among a
number of school pupils was won

etc. on the school playgrounds.
Oddfellows Hold Successful
Card Party
On Monday evening the local
Lodge of Oddfellows held a very
successful card party and dance in
the I. O. O. F. Hall. The music
for the dance was supplied by an
orchestra composed of Frank
Dresser, Duncan Campbell, Steve
Jones, Steve Peel and Thos. Evans.

Freshies at High School Will
Be Initiated
Next Friday night the "freshies"
at the local high school will go
through the ordeal of initiation,
after which they will be the guests
of the upper years at a social evening. A committee of third year
students is busy planning schemes
for a mild hazing of the newcomers. For the dance the Moose
Orchestra have kindly consented
to play. It is exclusively a young
people's affair.
Mrs. Hanna, sister of Mrs. Yard,
was a passenger on the "Prince
George" on Saturday, on the first
stage of her return to China.
Miss Dingwall, until recently on
the nursing staff of the local hospital was an out-bound passenger
on Saturday.
New Discoveries of Ore
Made on Homeguard
Further close prospecting on the
Homeguard during the past week
was instrumental in tracing the
silver-lead ore body for a distance
of 600 feet on the surface. Several
samples were broken off along it,
showing good mineralization.
This ledge is now being drifted
on, as was mentioned in last week's
A new ledge was also discovered
during the week. It is located on
the upper claim. The width has
not yet been determined, as there
has not been enough time at present to do surface stripping. Samples of the ore brought down show
good mineralization, and they will
be sent out for assaying. The ore
is copper-gold.
This new discovery is of considerable importance, as it shows that
the whole property is well mineralized. In addition to the silver-lead
ore ledge now being drifted on and
the new discovery, the Homeguard
carries considerable bodies of copper-gold ore, which are awaiting
Tramway At Saddle Is
Practically Completed
The Silver Crest Mining Co.
have practically completed the towers of the aerial tramway at the
Saddle property on Hastings Arm.
Preparations are being made for the
pulling in of the lumber for ore bins
and camp at the mine.
The tunnel at the mine has been
driven a distance of 110 feet, and
it will be driven to its objective as
soon as camp construction is completed, which it is expected will be
the latter part of this month or the
beginning of November.
Work'is progressing satisfactorily, and no interference from snow
has been experienced.

In the three weeks ending with
September 19, the domestic sales
of copper reached the astounding
total of 117,000 tons, a record
that has not been equalled in years
if ever. Practically none of the
metal was for prompt delivery or
for delivery later than November.
Moreover, this huge volume of
business was preceded by a normal volume of buying throughout
August, so that it is evident that
the recent activity was neither a
speculative move on the part of
consumers, nor was it forced because their stocks had been reduced to the danger point. Rather
it was induced by the numerous
favorable industrial conditions that
brought copper consumers to the
realization that their business this
fall would be better than they expected—perhaps of unprecedented
proportions. Foreign sales have
also been excellent. They promise
to set a new record this month.
The improvement that, in all
probability, will be recorded by
the copper industry this year will
refer to production, consumption,
price, and profits. In 1925 the
world produced only four per cent
more copper than in 1924; in
1926 and in 1927, only three per
cent more than in each of the preceding years; but the world production in 1928 promises to be
about 1,880,000 tons, or twelve
per cent more than last year.
The industry is coming into its
own for the first time since the
World War. Increasing demand,
which indicates prosperity, is the
fundamental reason for the improvement. Some are wont to
give the credit for the advance in
price to the closer association of
producers achieved this year; but
it must be realized that the recent
appreciation in price could not
have occurred without a demand
that justified it,  though  the  work

copper to the Pacific Coast plants
for refining and then shipment to
the Eastern market would make

Approximately 250 new elevators
have been constructed throiurliout
Alberta this year. It Is estimated
by local grain men. The total
capacity of these elevators would
be about 18.000.000 bushels, it was
stated. Complete figures for elevator construction-in the province
were not available, but grain men
stated that extension of facilities
had been progressing rapidly In all
parts of Alberta. The capacity of
the elevators varied from 35,000
bushels to 140,000 bushels. The

For tbe first season in a number
of years the Nlpigon trout may be
said to abound. Hydro-development with accompanying fluctuations in water levels, threatened
extinction of this exceptionally
game fish, but the careful regulation of the past three seasons has
apparently restored the world's
most famous trout stream to something of its old standing. Six
guests of the Bungalow Camp here
brought in 125 pounds of fish yesterday, counting a f.tlr number of
four and five-pound trout caught
mostly at the entrance to Lake
Polly. Pike and pickerel still
abound in large numbers, so it is
thought that the restoration of the
water level rather than the destruction of natural enemies has brought
back the Nipigon trout.
Entirely new and important
schemes involving large expenditures oo the part of the Canadian
Pacific Railway in the placement of
British colonists upon the land, are
to be undertaken through the Department of Colonization and Development of that companv, working in co-operation with the Overseas Settlement Committee of the
British Government. The details
of these schemes have been negotiated during the present visit to
Canada of Lord Lovat, Under Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs and chairman of the Overseas
Settlement Committee. One undertaking provides for the building
of one hundred cottages by the
Canadian Pacific for the use of
British families. They will be
used to make families accustomed
to Canadian conditions and farm
life before being established on
farms of their own.

Canadian Pacific Railway, the 3100 ie the largest passenger locomotive in the British Empire and the most powerful. Canadian workmen turned her out of Angus Shops, a graceful mechanism nearly one
hundred feet long, with a tractive effort of 60,800 pounds equal to 3,885
horse power. The use of Canadian nickle steel parts has reduced its weight
to 42.400 pounds, but the high ratio of tractive power to weight is a
notable feature of the new engine. The boiler pressure, 275 pounds, is
the highest of any locomotive in Canada. The eight drive wheels have
a diameter of 75 inches and the cast nickle steel cylinders are 25%
Inches by 30 inches. The length over all of the new Canadian Pacific

Alice Arm Agriculture
Will Grow With
Alice Arm is a mining centre.
Everyone realizes ttiat the future
prosperity of the camp is dependent
on mining, and they look in this
growing industry to build up a
irge and permanent town at the
head of the inlet.
Until the last two years agriculture was treated as a joke, but it is
being realized that as the mining
industry expands, agriculture in the
district will grow with it, , and will
ultimately be a big factor in the district's prosperity.
On the Kitsault Flats are a few
thousand acres of logged oft land
composed of fine river silt, and capable of growing any vegetable or
mall fruit. It is also suitable for
dairy farming.
On the east side of the river,
several persons who have an inclination for farming have this year
shown what results can be attained.
J. Sauer is successfully operating a
dairy farm and adding to his holdings. He is also raising vegetables
for the local market. Others who
are operating truck gardens, also
for the local market are William
Stevens and W. B. Bower, while
\. McGuire, J. Calfa and M. Krall
ire all successfully conducting extensive gardens on the east side of
the river.
The expansion of the mining
industry will foster agriculture.
As the former grows so will the
latter, and it is probable that
when mineral production attains
large proportions that the fertile
extensive flats of the Kitsault and
Illiance rivers will be dotted with
small and prosperous farmers, who
will considerably contribute to the
town's growth and prosperity.
