Molybdenum High Grade
Shipped South for
Mill Test
One hundred pounds of high
grade molybdenum ore was shipped
south during the week by G. VV.
Bruggy from the Tidewater Molybdenum claims. The shipment was
sent south for the purpose of
using it for a mill test. It was
taken from a ledge of ore uncovered
during the year by Wm. McFarlane,
who with G. W. Bruggy are owners
of the claims.
The shipment is considered to be
the best molybdenum in Canada.
The Tidewater Molybdenum claims
are classed by the Department of
Mines at Ottawa as containing the
best grade of ore in the Dominion.
It is expected that the property
will be put in operation next spring.
Plans are already being prepared.
The Tidewater Molybdenum is
situated four miles down the inlet
from Alice Arm. It is located, as
its name indicates, on tidewater,
thus assuring cheap "mining and
milling. Excellent timber is standing on the ground. It has everything in its favor for successful
mining: abundance of high grade
ore and an unexcelled location.
There is always a steady demand
for molybdenum, and this demand
will increase as time goes on. It is
used in the form of ferromolybden-
um to harden and toughen steel.
Compounds are also used in coloring
fabrics and pottery and in analytical
During the late war the price of
the metal rose to extraordinary
prices, due to the great demand by
the armament manufacturers, and
the limited supply.
Elks' Banquet Greatly
The Sports' Banquet held by the
local B. P. 0. E. in the Elks' Dugout on Wednesday evening was only
attended by a few, but those few
did full justice to the delicious
eatables supplied by Jimmy Thompson. A very good programme was
offered and thoroughly enjoyed. B.
M. Buck was the Chairman and
was the life of the party with his
ready supply of funny stories;
Murdo Frazer and Frank McLellan
gave recitations. Jimmy Varnes
was well received in a song as also
was Jimmy Thompson. Sid Armstrong was in fine form with a
violin solo, ably accompanied by
Frank Dresser at the piano, who
also gave a well rendered piano
solo which was thoroughly appreciated.
After the Banquet the entire company repaired to the Hall where
dancing was indulged in to the delightful strains of the Moose Orchestra . until 11.45 when supper
was again served in the Dugout.
New Logging Camp for
Alice Arm
Al. Falconer will operate a log-
ng camp a few miles down the inlet from Alice Arm during the winter, where he will log one of the
beat stands of timber in the district. It is good clean spruce and
some, hemlock. Logging will be
done by horses, the ground not being suitable for the use of a donkey
engine. A log chute has been constructed to the top of the hill,
down which logs will plunge to the
water. Seven men will be employed. In addition to logs for saw
mill purposes, piling will also be
taken out, there being a steady de
maud for this class of lumber on
the coast.

5th and 8th, according to a statement made by the Salvage interests. Blasting of the rook on which
the vessel is stuok will, it is expected will be completed shortly and
then it is proposed to pull the
vessel to as near an even keel as
possible, probably with a list of
fifteen or seventeen degrees. Patching of the vessel will uot take a
very long time and it is anticipated that everything will be in
readiness to pull her off on the
Deoember high tides and immediately bring her to Prince Rupert,
thus completing the salvage contraot.

Alice Arm Rink  Not
Yet Flooded
From all appearances lovers of
skating and hockey at Alice Arm
are going to try and exist this winter without indulging in their favourite recreation. Although we
have had over three weeks of freezing weather and the only roofed
rink north of Vancouver, up to the
present no concerted effort has been
made to flood the rink and procure
ice. It is a pity. Life is what we
make it. If we wish to enjoy ourselves in a small town it is up to us.

The dance sponsored by the I. O.
0. F. in the Elks' Hall on Friday
November 25th, was a very successful affair, while there was not
an overly large crowd present,
still those who did turn out were
treated to a very good evening's
entertainment. The Moose Orchestra supplied the music. Some
very snappy numbers were played
fully appreciated by the dancelovers.
A sumptuous supper was spread in
the Dugout at eleven o'clock.

Three games were played at the
Beach Gymnasium on Friday evening last, before a meagre handful of
spectators. The first contest
brought together the Rinky Dinks
and the Concentrator of the Intermediate League. The former winning easily to the tune of 25-6. The
losers tried hard but were outclassed
by their opponents.
In the second game the Public
School Girls repeated their victory
of the previous week over the High
School; when the score was 15-7.
Despite the fact that the High
School had two senior players of
former years the youngsters won
hands down. It was- a spirited
contest, however, with plenty of
action for the fans.
The Senior fracas brought together the Concentrator and the
Coke Plant. In the first few
minutes of play it looked like an
easy win for the league leaders but
the Coke Makers uncorked-a burst
of speed that completely bewildered
the opposition and when the final
whistle blew the score stood 45-25.
Walter Asimus played a stellar
game for the winners, dropping in
some very pretty shots from over
near the sidelines. The losers
seemed to have suffered a complete
reversal of form over their previous
appearances and did not look like
the same team that defeated the
Store-Office squad a week ago..
While the games are very interesting to most of the fans this year
they could be made even more so-
if there were not so many time outs
called during the games. Most of
the time the game is just getting
interesting when one side or the
other calls for time out, and as a
general rule for no reason whatever.
It does not take two minutes to
change a player and if the referee
would hurry the game along, it is
the opinion of the writer that better
games would be the result and also

K. MOSS, Edi'tbiiand^ublisher,
Stewart as the terminus of a
railway from tfje Peace River
district is receiving much influential support. Until a few months
ago the claims of Stewart were
treated as a joke. Due to unexpected powerful support those
who are in favor of Vancouver or
Prince Rupert terminus are beginning to worry and realize that
Stewart is a formidable competitor
for honors. The wheat growers
and business organizations of
Northern Alberta are almost unanimously in favor of a Stewart
terminus. They realize that it
means a shorter haul for grain,
which will reduce freight charges
and save the farmers millions of
dollars that will be spent by them
in their own district. It will also
mean cheaper rates for incoming
goods, and that is what they are
looking for. If a railway is built
to Stewart it will unquestionably
be done by the C. P. R. The
Canadian National Railway would
never build it, when they have a
terminus a hundred miles south
and owning miles of waterfront.
There is no doubt that the C. P.
R. have already made up their
minds on the subject, and the present agitation for a Pacific outlet for
the Peace River may be instrumental in forcing them to show
their hand. The building of a
railway to Stewart, in addition to
providing a short haul for the prairie
grain, would also open up a rich
mineral district, including the Igen-
ika, where many minerals are
known to exist, some of which are
already being developed. It is
not likely that the C. P. R. ate
going to stand quietly aside and let
this immense northern country be
controlled by a rival railway, a
country that in future may rival in
richness and population the more
southern parts. It must also be
remembered that the Consolidated
Mining & Smelting Co. of Trail, a
subsidiary company of the C. P.
R. are developing big mining
properties at Stewart, and also in
the Atlin Country. It is possible
that they may erect big reduction
plants at Stewart, and a railway
tapping the vast mineral deposits of
the interior would furnish the
necessary ore or concentrates, in
addition to the water borne
traffic from the south, and the
mines around Stewart. The C.
P. R. generally do things on a big
scale. They also see far into the
future. One thing is certain, if
they decide to make Stewart a
terminus, it will be a big city within a few years.
Stewart and Prince Rupert have
been the only places named so far
as a Peace River terminus. There
are many others, however. When
the Thomas interests of England
were planning a railway, it was
decided to make the outlet in a
bay south of the Naas River.
Alice Arm also has a claim as a
terminus. It has a splendid harbor
and an ideal townsite. It is in
fact a shorter route than the
Stewart one. Its claims have
never been pushed by its citizens,
which is a pity, We published
an article a few years ago pointing
out the advantages obtainable at
Alice Arm by a railway company
but the seed evidently fell on barren ground, for no action was
taken in its support.

Dunwell Future Plans
Uncertain -
Portland Canal News
The Dunwell mill and mine closed
down last Monday, up to which date
it is understood some' 3'),000 tons
of ore were mined and treated.
Little in the way of details is as yet
available, these being now compiled,
covering the entire period from the
commencement of milling operations
for the purpose of being embodied
."n a report which it is stated will
shortly be submitted to the shareholders by the management. The
drop of roughly 25 per cent in the
price of metals during the past year
certainly affected Dunwell operations.
While nothing is as yet definitely
known locally as to the future plans
of the company, still it is understood
lhat plans for reopening the property are being prepared.

Portland Canal News
Although there is now three feet
of snow at the Big Missouri, freight
to the mine is being easily aud
quickly moved, being hauled to
'Thirteen-mile on trucks and over
the new wagon road by sleighs for
the remaining eight miles.
The road was oompleted for winter use just about the time the first
heavy snowfall would have forced a
I     suspension of the work.
It has a minimum width of nine
feet, and when the snow is gone
next spring, will be surfaced for
motor traffic.
The winter's development program, so far as can be learned, will
consist of diamond drilling, for
which comprehensive plans, covering practioally the whole property,
have been prepared. Just now all
available men are employed putting
the oamps iu condition for the winter, and there is no work being done
underground, according to reports
from the mine.

1. Casting on Quesnel Lake;   2. A fair morning's catch;   3. Cleaning the gun for the hunt.
WHAT la one of tbe finest big
game and fishing sections of
Nerth America and one of the last
great stands tor big game, lies within easy reach of the Canadian Pacific
Railway in the Cariboo district of
British Columbia. Here, as nowhere
else on the continent, are found ln
abundance the bear, grlzzley, brown
and black; the moose and caribou,
and tie wary mountain goat and
sheep. The cougar is often seen and
.heard and the smaller fur bearing
animals make a trappers paradise of
this vast virgin territory. As will
be seen from the picture above, the
fishing Is superlatively good; It is
the fishing country of the west.
"Who Is the man with soul so dead
and bent on Irksome chores, who
hath not sometime to htm said, 'I'll
seek the Great Outdoors't" Each
year an Increasing number of hunters and fishermen are absorbed by
the district, but so vast and extensive
Is it, that there 'are yet parts of it
that have never been visited by the
hunter, and streams that have never
had a linei thrown-over-them. To
reach the Cariboo distriot one usually
Waves the railway at Ashcion ;~~ra
which place, arrangements having
previously been made, one start* out
by automobile over the famous Cariboo road to Quesnel Lake, Harpers
Camp, Horsefly Lake or one other
of the numerous camping sites. The
road, which winds among the foothills for hundreds of miles, climbs
to an elevation of 6,000 feet and
drops gradually to below the 2,300
foot level by the lakes, was made
famous by the horde of gold seekers
who passed over It ln the days of '49.
The old road houses built ln those
days are still there, and while many
of them are used as headquarters
for the large ranches ln the district
they afford simple but comfortable
accommodation on the trip.
From the oamps one can Just
paddle along the still, black, green
bordered streams and lakes over
which the snow capped ranges tower,
or one can sit at ease by the camp
fire and watch the sun sink behind
the hills set ablaze with Its glory,
listening the while to the soft rustle
of the wind ln the tree tops and the
gentle plashing of the water on the
crags. If one Is of a more agresslve
nature one can, accompanied by a
careful and well tried guide, strike
through the wilderness ln search of
its natural denizens, or, armed with
rod, fly and other bait, angle to the
hearts content. One may spend
weeks, making short trips by boat,
canoe, or saddle horse, fishing ln the
lakes and streams near by, and
getting back to camp eaoh night, or
travel with the necessaries for bivouac and commune wtth the wilds
for days or weeks at a time.
The Cariboo hunting and fishing
grounds are located kt the Great
Interior Plateau, lying between the
Rockies and the Cascades, east
of the Fraser River. Asheroft, the
Jumping off place, is an the main
line of the Canadian Vaclflo SOS
miles east of Vancouver. Equipment
for trips can be purchased there or
at one of the various hunting centres
ln the district close by. Guide and

Agitation Started  For
New Peace River
Secession of Peaee River from
Aiberta and British Columbia and
the establishment of a new province is offered as the solution of the
development problem by Charles
VV. Frederick, former mayor of
Peaco River.
The proposed new province
would be larger than Alberta or
British Columbia and would include Prince Rupert as a Canadian
National terminus, and all that
of British Columbia north of the
fifty-fourth parallel.
The new province would include
all the Peace River drainage in
Alberta in addition to tho Lesser
Slave region.
Mr. Frederick says public opinion iu Peace River favors drastic
measures to secure railway development or demand an opportunity
to undertake its own development.
A recent public meeting endorsed the proposals and appointed a
committee to confer with residents
in all parts of the territory.
Copper Institute  May
Stabilize Prices
At the start activities of the
Copper Institute, organized last
week by the important copper
producing companies of the United
States, will be to collect, compile
aud distribute trustworthy and
comprehensivestatistics concerning
the production, distribution, and
marketing of copper. Promptness,
completeness, and accuracy are to
be emphasized. It will put into
the hands of miners, smelters, refiners and sellers of copper at
weekly and monthly intervals ill-
formation that will present a
remarkably complete picture of the
position of the copper industry in
respect both to production and to
marketing. It will not formulate
policies or advise member-companies as to any course of action. Its
function will be simply to place the
information before the members.
Whether or not the copper-mining
industry benefits in a financial
way from the activities of the institute—and, obviously, that is
the hope—will depend upon how
well the individual companies
make use of a tool that is put into
their hands. At the same time
the faots will be available to the
publishers of trade papers and the
general press. Consequently, the
buyers of copper will know the
situation as accurately as the
sellers. However, as the sellers
exercise a direot control over many
of the factors in the situation they
seem to be in position to reap the
Mineral Production to
Outrank Canadian
Wheat Crop
Following close on the heels of
the phenomenal growth of agriculture and forest industries a third
great form of development has
more recently played au equally eff"
ective role in revamping Canada's
economic structure. Mining development has been responsible
for some of the most striking
changes that have come over the
Dominion iu the last quarter of a
Not so many years ago Canada's
mineral output was dominated by
the extreme east and the extreme
west. Nearly 70 per cent, of the
total mineral output iu value came
from Nova Scotia, British Columbia, and the Yukon. Today older
mining areas have developed remarkably and are stronger than
ever. It is the great series of in-
terior provinces that now hold the
leadership. Ontario has matched
and surpassed British Columbia's
magnificent record of mining pro
gress, Nova Scotia is rivalled by
Alberta and Quebec. And Manitoba, New Brunswick and Saskatchewan, though less advanced in actual development, all possess mineral resources of real promise.
With the great spreading out of
mining activity into new regions,
there has, of course, been an immense rise in the annual value of
Canada's total mineral production.
In 1926, the aggregate output
reached the record figure of $241,-
000,000 and unless all signs fail
this new record is not likely to last
very long. As a matter of fact it
is quite within a limited measure
of time, to outrank the Canadian
wheat crop in a financial way.
Such a suggestion would have been
almost unthinkable ten years ago;
but if the mining industry continues to advance as it has done in
the last 15 years, the possibility is
more than likely to become an
actual fact.
