Logging Operations are
Active at Alice Arm
The logging industry at Alice
Arm has been making great strides
during the past few weeks.
The work of placing the big
standing boom, oiie mile in length,
around the mouth of the Kitsault
lias been completed by Mr C. P.
Kiel. Tins boom was constructed
for the purpose of catching tho logs
oi' the Abbotsford Logging Co.,
which will be floated down stream
as soon an sufficient water is available.
Eric Carlson, contractor for the
Abbotsford Logging Company is
making a remarkable record taking
out logs. His logging train is
hauling full loads, several trips a
day to the landing. He is also
yarding into tide water, the several
million feet that were yarded to
spar trees last season. Very soon
he will place one of his donkeys on
tne bank of the Kitsault river, and
yard into the river, which will
mean a total landing of two hundred thousand feet per day.
The Granby Co. are making
great headway with the construction of their camps. Men are now
being boarded at the No. 2 oamp
up the Dolly Varden Railway, and
the dining room is now being operated at the No. 1 camp on the
flats. Work of driving piles for
the railway trestle on the flats is
being proceeded ..with. Four logging cars arrived by scow on Tuesday from Anyox, and more will
follow in a short time. Palling
. nd bucking of logs in the woods
is being carried on continuously,
and over 2,500,000, feet are now
ready to be hauled out. Iu a few
weeks construction of camps will
be finished and as soon as material
is assembled, logging operations
will be oarried on full blast.
Anyox Trainman Badly
Injured
J. Christoff, trainman, who has
been employed by the Granby
Company for the past five or six
years, was seriously injured when
accidentally crushed between an
engine and truck, while working
in the vicinity of the Smelter,
during the early part of the week.
Immediately after the accident
First Aid was rendered and he
was then conveyed to the Anyox
hospital, where he is being treated
and where hope is entertained for
his recovery.
A native of Macedonia, and 35
years of age Chris, as he is
popularly known, is a great favorite with his fellow workers, and all
those with whom lie was associated, the news of his serious accident
came as a great shock.

What Mining Means
to District
The future prosperity of this
district depends entirely upon the
mining industry, and the mining
industry alone. Just what the
industry means to the north,
can be obtained from the reports
of the Granby Co., and the
Premier Gold Mining, Co., published in the Herald a few weeks
ago.
The Granby Co. produced 33,-
159,470, pounds of copper, and
451,479, ounces of silver last year.
They also produced a large
quantity of coke, and other byproducts. The average number of
men on the payroll was around
1200, and millions of dollars were
spent in wages and the purchasing
of material. The operations of
the Granby Co., are no small factor
in stablizing the prosperity of the
Province.
Next to the Granby Co., the
Premier Gold Mining Co., are
the next largest mine operators in
this district. Last year the
Premier Co., produced 117,294,
ounces of gold, and 2,746,551,
ounces of silver. The payroll for
the year was $753,000, and the
average number of men employed
was 336 throughout the year.
This company also spent $559,-
616, in supplies, and 209,908
was spent on freight rates for ore.
With these two examples before
us, it is plain to everyone that the
development of the mining industry
is the only solution of permanent
prosperity in this district. Every
encouragement should be given the
prospector, and small mining companies by the government, for it is
due to the efforts of these sturdy
pioneers that the big mining companies are able to operate, and
distribute wealth throughout*the
province.

Game Laws Will be Enforced
Fur and trophy pirating will be
stopped along the British Columbia-Alaska border this year, state
officials of the Game Conservation
Board. It is expected that Canada
and the United States will agree
upon a ''dead wall" or game sanctuary for 52 miles on either side of
the border in the Stikine and Taku
districts. Additional efforts will
be made to prevent the killing of
game animals for meat and the
selling of trophies to disappointed
hunters.

British Blood
Predominates in B. C.
When it uomes to nationality,
British Columbia is not a melting-
pot for the misfits of Europe, but
we are one of the four provinces of
Canada that can show not less
than three of every four citizens as
British stock. The other provinces
are Ontario, Nova Scotia and little
Prince Edward Island. The other
western provinces are nearer to the
half-way mark in this respect. In
all our ways the stamp of English
custom is upon us, for 221,000,
being 42 per cent, of our people,
are of English blood. The pioneering Scot is next, to the number of
104,000, a furthur 20 per cent, of
the total, and the ubiquitous Irish
are in our midst to the number of
54,000, an additional 10 per cent.
A consideration of these figures
shows that we are swiftly becoming
one united people of British stock
and the growth of our "Yellow
peril," the Asiatic, is placed in a
rather new light. The different
census years give the proportion of
our British stock in this province
as follows: 1901, 59 per cent; 1911,
65 per cent: 1921, 74 per cent.
What better could we wish?

Ore Reserves of World
Are Being Rapidly
Depleted
Big Companies Will Have to
Develop Future Mines
Dr. Victor Dolmage, head of the
B. C. office of the geological survey,
ina recent address to the Chamber
of Mines, Vanoouver, said, during
his address:
'A second reason why ore finding
is becoming more difficult is that
unprospective areas are gradually
becoming smaller and crowded into
the remote sections of the tropical
and polar regions where climatic
and other difficulties retard the
prospector. However, British Columbia is particularly well situated
in this respect, for I doubt if there
is any section of the earth's surface
with equal facilities, suoh as
climate, good mining laws well enforced transportation, both rail
and water, which has as many
undiscovered ore bodies outcropping at the surface as British
Columbia, unless, perhaps, it is
northern Ontario. In other words,
there is no other field in which the
prospector under easily tolerable
conditions is as likely to be rewarded for his efforts. And yet I am
repeatedly told by representatives
of capital that a good proposition
is extremely difficult to find."
Not only is Ore finding the most
difficult problem of the industry,
but it is becoming extremely urgent. As the editor of J;he Engineering and Mining Journal says:
"There is only one crop of metals
and it is now being rapidly harvested." There are no new deposits of metals being formed. What
will happen when the present crop
is harvested.? Moreover, the consumption of metals of all kinds is
increasing enormously."
Production at present is able to
keep pace with consumption, and
in the case of some metals, such as
copper and nickel, at present
exceed the rate of consumption,
but these conditions cannot last.
Even if the rate of consumption
did not increase it would not be
many years until the production of
some of the metals would begin to
show signs of lagging. But the
rate of consumption is almost
certain to increase."
It may be possible for production to almost keep up for a time
by speeding up from the known
deposits, but this will only hasten
the day when production must fall
behind. Therefore, with our consumption of metals increasing and
our known deposits rapidly depleted, the urgency of the need of
finding more ore is painfully
apparent."
The companies looking for properties are going to have to lc^wer
their standards and take greater
chances in buying prospects.
There was a time when a mining
company would buy nothing but a
developed mine; they were willing
to take no chances whatever.
That time has passed, aud they are
beginning to realize that, if they
are going to get new mines, it will
be necessary to lower their requirements with reference to the
amount of developed ore on prospects whose purchase is being
considered."
Development Work at
Dunwell Mine
The Granby Co. produced more
copper last year than the rest of
B. C. combined.
Portland Canal News
Preparations for employing a much
larger, crew at the Dunwell are being
made, 20,000 feet of lumber, including
10,000 feet of cedar siding, shiplap etc.
from Vancouver, having been rushed
up while it was still possible to use
sleighs. A new bunkhouse is being
erected, also a blacksmith shop and an.
assay office, and the present mess
house is being considerably enlarged.
The crosscuts on the No. 3 level
driven from the north and south drift
to determine the width of the ore
body, *ire finished and the drift is
being continued as before, in the
country rock along the vein, leaving
the ore standing. Each crosscut is 60
feet distant from the main opening
where the vein was encountered. The
south shows three feet of solid galena
and two feet of mixed ore, with a
streak of quartz carrying free gold and
native silver. The north shows the
same width—five feet—of similar ore.
No assays have yet been obtained on
the galena in the south crosscut, but
the same material in the north assays
up tn $400 per ti. i. There two crosscuts define the vein for a lateral distance of 100 feet and at a depth of 500
feet.
