Ore Values on the
Vanguard Are
The drift being driven on the rich
ore body on the Vanguard is now
in 75 feet states H. W. Heidman,
who is in charge of operations and
was in town during the week. The
drift carries a full face of ore, and
values are much higher than when
the ore body was encountered with
the crosscut tunnel. The drift is
now going through ore with the
phenominal value of 15 per cent
copper, and a sample of this spectacular ore was brought down by
Mr. Heidman. The drift will be
driven an additional 25 feet and the
ore body then crosscut to determine
the width.
A new tunnel has been commenced
500 feet south of the present workings. It is being driven on the
same ore body and will be 60 feet in
length, which will give a depth of
75 feet on the ore. Eight men are
at present working on the property.
The successful development of
the Vanguard is a source of great
satisfaction to those in charge of
operations and also to the whole
district, and its success will be instrumental in greatly increasing
mining activity in the district.
The main tunnel on the Red
Point Mr. Heidman stated is now in
675 feet, and is being driven at the
rate of 8 feet per day. The big ore
body has not yet been encountered
but it is expected that it will be
struck within the next 50 feet.
The new tunnel which is being
driven at a higher elevation is in 25
feet and has cut through a good
grade of ore the entire distance. It
is being driven to obtain knowledge
of the ore body, which will assist in
driving tunnels on the lower levels.
Ore Body on Stormer
Has Been Traced
An important discovery of high
grade ore on the Stormer Group
was recently made by J. Calvin,
who on Thursday returned from the
property, bringing in several fine
samples. The ore runs about
5 per cent copper and similar
samples taken from the ore body at
a lower elevation have given returns
in addition to copper values of 30
ozs. silver and $2.00 gold per ton.
The ledge from which these
samples were taken is 5 feet wide,
and this year has been traced on
the surface for a distance of 500
feet, at an elevation of 3500 feet.
Another ledge paralleling the
above mentioned one, has been located at an elevation of 3000, It is
much wider and carries good copper
The Stormer Group consists of
4 claims and joins the LaRose on
the west. It is located in a rich
mineral belt and further prospecting
and development will be carried on
with all possible speed.
Says Alice Arm is First Class
Mining Camp
Paul F. Brown, New York
mining engineer, who spent
considerable time in Alice Arm
last year, and returned again
this summer stated before leaving
for the south today that he was
convinced that the Alioe Arm
district was a first-class mining
oountry, and predicted a great
future for the oamp. The large
deposits and the faot that the ore
was spread over suoh a large area
of the oountry warranted such a
statement. He expected to interest capital in the oamp, but would
not give any details. He was of
the opinion that further development of the oamp by small companies was necessary before the
advent of the large conoerns. Mr.
Brown expeots to leave for the
south today.
Suffers Severe Injuries from
High Fall
D. Lamont, an improver employed
in the Boiler Shop at Anyox, while
working on a special job on the
smelter roof Wednesday afternoon,
slipped and took a couple of thirty
foot slides to the ground. He is
now in hospital suffering from a
broken foot, dislocation of the
elbow, bad laceration of the leg and
bruises on the head. At the time
of going to press there is every
chance of Mr. Lamont's recovery
from this miraculous fall.
Anyox Native Sons Hosts
At Dance And
Officersandmembers of the Native
Sons of Canada Assembly No. 85,
were hosts to about 150 guests on
Friday evening last at the Elks'
Hall. As hosts the Native Sons
certainly excelled themselves and
nothing but praise from everybody
present was heard during the evening and ever since the party. Mr.
F. F. Brown, the worthy president,
spoke a few kind words of welcome
during the banquet which was responded to by very hearty applause
by all those who were not really too
busy enjoying the wonderful spread
provided by the boys.
Dancing was indulged in and
much enjoyed to the music of the
Moose Orchestra until the small
hours of the morning.
This is the first public function
offered by the Native Sonsof Canada
here in Anyox—and a very successful one—and great credit is due the
Committee, Mr. J. Deeming, chairman; Mr. Dune Campbell and Mr,
H. E. Arnold for their splendid
efforts in making the first of these
affairs "nulli secundus".
Public Meeting Raises
School Assessment
A public meeting was held at the
School House on Thursday evening
for the purpose of discussing the
recent ruling of the Superintendent
of Education whereby Alice Arm is
raised to the status of an organized
The chair was occupied by H.
Fowler. Secretary Al. Falconer
read a letter from the superintendent of Education stating that no
change could be made in the decision to make Alice Arm an organized
school district.
All districts having an assessment
over $150,000 are now classed as
organized. The Department of
Education have stated that they will
provide $580.00 toward the salary of
the teacher and the people of Alice
Arm must supply the balance, which
is $820.00 and which allows for
janitor work.
It was decided after much dis
cussion to raise the assessment for
school tax from $750.00 to $1350.00.
Anyox Couple Married
Surprise weddings are becoming
popular in Anyox. On Thursday
evening September 8th. Mr. Benny-
Brown of the Mine and Miss Annie
Hill were united in marriage at the

Surface stripping carried on this
year on the Bunker Hill property
which adjoins the LaRose mine,
has been instrumental in discovering two ore veins, whioh are of
great importance.
A vein of solid ore has been uncovered from 10 to 12 inches wide.
The ore is silver-lead-zinc, carrying
gold values from $5.00 to $6.00
per ton. Samples have assayed
50 per cent lead, 65 ozs. silver and
$7.00 gold per ton. The work
was undertaken this year by Ed.
Trethewey, whose father J. O.
Trethewey of Abbotsford is owner.
This new discovery parallels a
vein that has been traced on the
surface for a distance of 350 feet,
aud varies in width from 6 inches
to 2l/i feet an average width of 18
inches being solid ore.
Between the two veins it is composed of crushed rock, iu which are
many small connecting veins varying from J of an inch to 4 inches
Another discovery was made 75
feet higher up the hill from where
ore was discovered last year, and is
an exceptionally fine showing
These two discoveries add considerable value to the Bunker Hill,
which is a very promising property
It is expected that with the commencement of underground work
considerable more ore veins will
be discovered. The heavy over-
Iburden makes surface prospecting
difficult. It is looated in a rich
mineral zone on Haystack mountain, and' underground work is
necessary to obtain big results.
Visitor Enjoys Stay at Alice
W. A. Johnstone of Vancouver,

I leave with the most sinoere hope
and trust that the fondest hopes of
the enterprising citizens of Alice
Arm may be speedily realized.

The Anyox Community League
propose to operate Technical
School classes in Anyox during
the coming winter, and anyone
who wishes to improve their
knowledge either in the occupation
they are following or some other
line of business, will have ample
opportunity. This is an age of
learning, and everyone who wishes
to ascend the ladder of fame, or
even improve their position must
study. We are living in a province whose industries are rapidly
expanding, and there is lots of room
at the top for those who will bend
their energies toward study. It is
hoped that a generous response
will be made and that the various
classes will be filled. Competent
instructors will be provided for
each class. A splendid opportunity exists for those who wish to
increase their earning capacity,
which no one with ambition can
afford to ignore.
The salmon fishing along the
British Columbian and Alaskan
coasts have been a failure. The
cause of the failure lies with the
canneries, who in past years have
taken as many salmon as possible,
with no thought of the future. All
the streams have been fished to the
limit, and now the price is being
paid. The shortage does not
effect the cannery companies so
much as the fishermen. The can-
ners have received ample returns
for their investment and they ,now
can invest their money in some
other line of business. A large
number of fishermen, however, are
in a different position. They have
homes, wives and families on many
islands along the coast. The
money derived from fishing keeps
these homes going to a certain extent, and has created many prosperous settlements. A failure of
the salmon fishing spells disaster for
these people. The Indians also
are hard hit when the salmon
fails to appear. They are the
wards of the white race, who have
taken their hunting grounds from
them, and they must be provided
for. Major J. A. Motherwell,
chief inspector of fisheries, who
has personally examined the situa-
Lightning Rods & Lighting Fixtures Consume
Much Copper
During recent years intensive
efforts, have been made to demonstrate the 'efficiency of copper
lightning rods as a protection
against damage by electrical storms
and a substantial market has developed in a relatively short time.
In the manufacture of lightning
rods about 15,000,000 pounds is
used each year. If complete protection by copper lightning rods
were provided for all exposed
buildings, it is estimated that over
200,000,000 pounds of copper would
be required.
The great increase of the past
few years in the number of residences wired for electricity has provided a corresponding increase in
the market for lighting fixtures.
Brass is the material largely used
for fixtures to be placed in residences, and bronze for the more architectural type of fixtures for halls,
public buildings, etc. For outdoor
fixtures, such as porch and garage
lanterns, and many kinds of traffic
signals, sheet copper is used. The
lighting fixture industry, as a
whole, consumes over forty million
pounds of copper per year in all

Will of late John Oliver is
The will of the late Premier Oliver which was probated leaves an
r estate valued at $75,502,92. The
beneficiaries are the widow, five
sons, and three daughters.
Under the will, which was dated
July 15 of this year, the widow
receives a life income from the
estate except a considerable portion of the Delta estate of whioh
his son William Arthur has the
free use for life.
The will mentions that Mrs.
Oliver is to receive title to the
family residence, at Viotoria, P. G.
E. debentures worth £340 and
$1,000 in Dominion bonds. The
residue of the estate is divided into
81 parts and to each of his sons
and daughters he has bequeathed
parts, stating reasons for so doing.
Sale of Indian  Silver
Depresses Market
The government of India has
recently sold silver bullion held in
the Indian paper currency reserve
to an amount of approximately
9.200.000 ozs., representing the
total stock of mine silver held by
the government of India. As this
silver ceases to form part of the
currency reserve, its place will be
taken by Indian government rupee
securities whioh will be reduced as
the sterling proceeds from the sale
of silver are received.
The fact of the announcement
having been made officially rather
suggests that the Indian government has no immediate intention
of operating further at the moment
but nevertheless the sales have
continued to depress the market.
Halibut Scarcity Causes
The international fisheries commission has not recommended that
the halibut batiks be temporarily
