Sensational Strike
Ore Made On
The most sensational ore strike
made in the Alice Arm district for a
considerable time was made last
week-end on the Homeguard by the
Dalhousie Mining Co. who are developing the property.
Sanfiples of the ore were brought
lo town. They consist of massive
•halcopyrite and bomite copper and
ire among the best specimens of
■ upper ore ever produced in the
camp. The ore body has been
proven to have a width of 8 feet
and further work will probably
prove it even wider. Samples of
the ore were sent to the Dalhousie
Co.'s office in Victoria for assaying.
The strike was made by close
prospecting of the property. It is
located on the Canyon claim, and is
about a claim's length from where
work was conducted during the
winter. It is an entirely new ore
body and its location considerably
enhances the value of the property.
It has been traced for a considerable
stance on the surface, and further
work consisting of surface stripping
:s being carried on.
Angus McLeod, general superintendent for the Dalhousie Co.
arrived on Thursday from Vancouver. He will examine the new find,
and will spend a week on the property making a complete examina-
ation of the numerous ore bodies.
The Homeguard is numbered
among the most promising properties of fhe camp. On it is located
b;g' bodies of commercial copper ore,
also veins running high in silver and
zinc. The new strike shows that
the ore is not confined to one small
area. Future development work
will without doubt prove the Home-
guard a big tonnage mine. Its
close proximity to the railway is an
asset not enjoyed by numerous
Two Week-end Dances Alice
The Empire Day festivities at
Alice Arm opened with a dance on
Thursday evening. It was held in
T. W. Falconer's hall and an enjoyable time was spent until the early
hours of Friday morning. A number of Anyox visitors were present
and the hall was thronged with
A dance was also held at the
Alice Arm Hotel on Saturday evening. A large number were also
I present and another very pleasant
I evening was spent by those who
Idelight in tripping the sedate waltz

The Anyox Choral Society and
jthe Anyox Amateur Orchestra
Supported by selected vocalists delighted a large audience at the Mine
■fall on Tuesday evening.
More Money  Allotted
For Library Books
The Council of the Community
League has decided to enlarge the
amount spent on books. Hereafter
in addition to the regular allowance
of twenty-five dollars a month, all
money accruing from fines or losses
will be applied to the purchase of
new books.
The suggestion was made that it
might be more convenient for shoppers and theatre-goers if the library
hours were changed so as to allow
exchange of books on Wednesday
morning and on the other five nights
of the week from six-thirty to
eight-thirty. The list of magazines
is being subjected to revision and
suggestions for deletion or addition
will be welcomed by the Chairman.
Will Hold Tennis Tournament
For juveniles
By permission of the Tennis Club
the Anyox P. T. A. will hold a
tennis tournament for juveniles on
Monday in honor of the King's
Birthday. The competitors will be
limited to school children who are
not members of the Tennis Club.
There will be three events; girls'
doubles; boys'doubles; and mixed
doubles; entrants may arrange their
own partners. Prizes will be awarded for first and second place. Miss
Greenwood, Convenor of the P. T.
A. Sports committee will be in
Queen  Charlotte Islands
Earthquake Centre
A slight earthquake shock was
experienced by a number of people
in the district on Sunday afternoon
at 2.30 p.m. The centre of the
earthquake appears to be on /the
Queen Charlotte Islands, where the
top of a mountain blew off and a
volcanic eruption is feared. The
vibration on the islands shook down
chimneys and caused much apprehension.
The Anyox Girl Guides wish to
thank all those who so kindly contributed and helped to make their
recent Sale of Work so successful.

The baseball game following the
races representing Anyox and Alice
Arm was a great exhibition of the
national game. Chris Cane led his
warriors into the field, full of enthusiasm, already flushed with the victory that was shortly to be.
But after the first two innings,
during which they were busy chasing the ball around theflats, their enthusiasm became somewhat damp-
Anyox  Artistes   Have
Wide Experience
Theatre-goers, will, without a
doubt, obtain a full 50 cents worth
of enjoyment on Monday evening,
June 10th. when they attend the
song recital by W. F. Aylward and
S. A. McPherson.
Aylward has played many of the
leading theatres and halls of the
Old Country, also eastern Canada,
and the United States. He was a
performer of the Moss and Stoll
variety circuit throughout the British Isles.
McPherson was one of the principal baritones with the Dunbar Opera
Co. of Chicago, on tour in "The
Mikado". He was with the Gordon
players of New York on Orphenum
Circuit, and soloist with the famous
Canadian Kiltie Band on tour of the
United States. He has also played
in Vancouver, Seattle and other
western cities.
Anyox  Celebration  Is
Dampened By Weather
Weather did not favour the holiday program for May 24th. The
excursion to Larcomb Island did
did not attract many and the tennis
tournament was postponed to June
9th. In the international football
game in the morning the fleet-footed
young Englanders defeated Cale
donia 3-1. Later in the day the
Mine and the Elks' baseball teams
furnished the fans some excitement,
the former winning 4-3.
The day concluded with a dance
arranged by the I. O. O. F. which
was well attended and much enjoyed.
Canadian Pictures Shown To
A special show was arranged for
the children on Monday evening
when the Anyox P. T. A. showed ;
number of slides of scenes of Can
ada from coast to coast. The slides
were obtained from the C. N. R. by
courtesy of Mr. F. Brown. Mr.
George Warwick was at the lantern
and Mr. Clark interspersed comments.

They made strenuous efforts to
equalize during the early stages of
the game, but luck was against
them. The Alice Arm clouters were
in great form, and moreover, they
had their running shoes on when
they cantered round the bases.

Anyox   Scouts   Spend
Week-end Under
The Anyox Boy Scouts, under
the leadership of Scoutmaster R.
Gale, spent the week-end at Alice
Arm. They arrived at their destination at 8.15 p.m. on Thursday,
ind left for home the following
Sunday evening.
Three days of unalloyed happiness
were spent by the boys amid the
greenery and sunshine of Alice
Arm. One and all were loth to
leave their camping ground situated
on the banks of picturesque Falls
Creek, but the call to duty was
inflexible and it was a merry,
laughing bunch that bade good-bye
to the scene of tlieir outing, with
the hopes that, a return visit would
not be long delayed.
The boys slept under canvas in
true Scout style, cooking their
meals by an open fire. Tents were
all up before night fell on Thursday
evening, and many experienced
their first sleep on mother earth.
On Friday the camp was improved. The boys took an active
part in the Empire Day sports
during the afternoon. During the
evening the investiture of two
scouts, Danny McDonald and Billy
McDonald was held. The investiture took place round a blazing
camp fire. Numerous songs were
sung and the proceedings were
greatly enjoyed by a number of
interested spectators.
On Saturday, Cubmaster Roberts
arrived from Anyox with three
cubs, and a trip was made to the
lakes on the hill above Alice Arm.
A camp fire meeting was held in
the evening with Arthur Teabo in
On Sunday short hikes were
made. A meeting of the scouts
was held in T. W. Falconer's hall
during the afternoon, when Scoutmaster Gale addressed the boys.
Breaking camp occupied the balance of the day. ,

The proposed federal tax of one-
fourth of one cent on the sale of
stocks between 50c. and $1; one
cent on stocks selling between $1
and $3 and so on in proportion of
values, is a serious blow to the
mining industry of British Columbia.
It means that the holder of low
priced mining stock when making
a sale at a smal) profit gets nothing.
The government takes it all in taxes.
The new Act, if it is carried as it
now stands, will be instrumental in
wiping out one of our basic industries, except for a few of the
large companies, whose stock is
high. It will also mean a serious
loss to thousands of people of British Columbia. There is hardly a
person in the province that does
not hold some mining stock, bought
with the expectation of some day
making a profit. Instead of the
buyer making a profit, the government steps in and takes the winnings, while the other fellow takes
the chance. It has been an uphill fight during the past few years
to interest the public in developing
our mineral resources. Results
were just being obtained, when in
steps the government and wrecks
the good work of years in one foul
blow. If the Act is put into force,
it will probably mean that the headquarters of the big brokerage firms
of Vancouver will move to Seattle.
Americans will also take a hand
in the game, and British Columbia
will be flooded by cheap American
mining stocks. We will then be
developing American mines instead
of our own, and millions of dollars
will find their way across the border while our own prospects and
small mines are lying idle. It is
estimated that during the oil boom
of California a few years ago, $6,-
000 000 of good British Columbia
money was sent there. The same
thing will happen again. Thanks
to our prosperity, nearly everyone
has a few dollars for investment.
Why make it impossible to invest
our money in our own province,
employing Canadian labor and
spending our money in the home
market for supplies? As we have
pointed out on former occasions,
the small mining company is as important as the big corporation. It
is the little fellow that steps in and
develops a prospect, and if the
tonnage is large, the big company
eventually takes it over. If the
tonnage is limited, a small mill is
installed and the ore converted into wealth. If it proves a blank,
another prospect is acquired. If
the mining industry is to expand
the small company offering low
priced stock is essential. Instead'
of putting obstacles in his way, he
should receive a bonus for the
quantity of ore developed.
One more reading and Robb's
new stock tax will be over the last
hurdle and on its way to the Senate
and the statute books of Canada.
It is to be hoped that the Senate
will hold it up for a year, at least.
Should that happen there would be
thousands of people in Canada who,
to paraphrase Sir James Barrie's
question regarding fairies: "Do
you believe in Senates?" would
chorus a fervent "Yes!"—Financial
Will Build Road to Igenika
Potentialities of the district beyond Prince George from a mining
standpoint is the principal reason of
the projection of a road by the provincial government, north 85 miles
from Vanderhoof into the Ingenika
section. This road will ultimately
be extended to Fort Graham and
Finlfty Forks.
Somebody has to speculate, or
humanity could not exist. The
miner speculates on the hidden
wealth of the earth; the farmer
speculates on sunshine, water and
seed; the merchant speculates on
public demand for the goods he
buys; the railroad builder speculates
on the future productivity of the
country through which he runs his
line; the banker speculates on the
ability of the borrower to repay his
loans.    Life itself is a speculation.
Farmer Strikes High Grade
Just to prove that things like this
do happen: W. P. Rhodes, blasting
post-holes on his farm near Matheson, Ontario, revealed ore bearing
free gold; sold the farm for $50,000
and an eighth interest in the company which is being organized to
develop it.
A sharp relapse in copper quotations, following a spectatular rise,
has served as a reminder that things
can be overdone.

taken over the Tiger and Kitsol Groups
in the Upper Kitsault Valley, and an
intensive program of development work

Oil Pouring   Out   Of
Turner Valley
In April, 1929, the Turner Valley
produced 54,904 barrels pf crude
naphtha and 14,303 barrels of crude
oil, making a total, of 69,207 barrels
of oil and naphtha during that
month. This is at the rate of over
830,000 barrels annually compared
with 481,000 in 1928. From the
present rate of increase it seems
assured that the Turner Valley will
produce well over 1,000,000 barrels
this year. The April output of crude
naphtha was approximately 900
barrels more than the average for
the first three months in 1929, and
the April production of crude oil
was over 2000 barrels greater.

Payment, Northern Light
Outstanding payments on Northern Light mining property, Portland
Canal district, have been completed
by the payment of $50,000 to the
owners, William and Charles Bunting, of Hyder, and their acceptance
in addition of 56,000 shares in the
company. This property was taken
over about 18 months ago by the
Northern Light Mining Company,
and recently it merged with Premier
Border Gold Mining Company. The
latter's large cash assets enabled
the property to be cleared.
B. C. Coal Production Falls
Coal production in British Columbia during the first quarter of 1929
was considerably less than for the
corresponding period of 1928,
according to a report issued by the
department of mines under authority of Hon. W. A. McKenzie, minister of mines.
The output for the first three
months of 1928 was 622,301 long
tons compared with 686,145 long
tons in the same period last year.

This totem rxile Is one of the finest examples of Indian art.   Right, Their Excellencies Viscount and Lad; Willingdon and tha
C.P.S.S. "Princess Norah" on which the first viceregal tour of the west coast of Vancouver Island waa made
W/ hen Viscount Willingdon, Gov-
w ernor-General of Canada, and
Lady Willingdon visited the West
Coast of Vancouver Island on the
inaugural cruise of the new Canadian Pacific steamer "Princess
Norah" two new epochs were marked for that far-flung corner of the
It was the first time that a Canadian Viceroy had ever seen, and
in turn, been seen on the rugged
coast that is now looming as one
of the nation's important industrial
and tourist regions; further the
arrival of the Norah brought the
most luxurious passenger steamer
ever to ply in regular service in
West Coast waters, now to be the
permanent run of the staunch little
Clyde-built vessel.
The West Coast had decked itself
in gala attire for the visit of the
great white chief from Ottawa,
tremendous excitement prevailing
among whites and Indians alike at
the various ports of call. Local interest was heightened by the fact
that Their Excellencies cast formality to the four winds, and entered into the spirit of the many
receptions and celebrations with a
zest not exceeded by any tourist
on the coast. Incidentally.' Lord
Willingdon intimated after the ter
mination of his voyage that it
would not be the last occasion on
which he would see that particular
part of Vancouver Island.
Loyalty of the Indians, evident
at all points touched, was particularly demonstrated at Friendly
Cove, historic spot discovered by
Captain Cook in 1778, when a
lineal descendant of the great
Chief Maquinna, who first saw the
white man, gathered his tribe, the
Nootka Indian band, in the great
council hall to greet the vice-regal
party. It was here that Lord and
Lady Willingdon were recipients
of one of the most valuable gifts in
the bestowal of the coast Indians,
a huge forty-foot totem pole that
has stood for years on the sandy
shores of Friendly Cove, the envy
of collectors from many parts of
the world.
Presentation of the totem was
touching In its simplicity yet its
significance was not lost. Chief
Napoleon, head of the Nootka
Band, descendant of Maquinna, was
first to extend the Indians' official
welcome, elaborate ceremony which
included the famous dance of the
the council hall, and Chief Jack,
another of the Nootka Band,
mounted the pedestal to deliver an
impassioned peroration in his native tongue.
His Excellency stood attentively
until the Indian Chief had finished
his speech, taking it, probably, for
the usual honeyed words of welcome. His astonishment and that
of many of the chief's hearers was
great when "Billy" Lord, well-
known industrial leader on the
west coast, acting in the role of unofficial interpreter, told His Excellency that Captain Jack had presented the big forty-foot carving
as a gift.
Significance of the gift lies in
the tremendous value which the
Indians themselves place on their
historical totems. It would have
been a somewhat parallel case, one
of the men familiar with west
coast customs said, if a white man,
on being visited by vice-royalty,
had with one magnificent gesture
j;iven away his home and the
greater part of his fortune.
Their Excellencies, sensing this,
accepted the gift with delight, and
Thunder Bird, marking this part I announced that plans would be
of the rites. Later, the Indians led i made to have it removed from its
the vice-regal party to the site of present historical setting to Rideau
a huge totem pole standing near, Hall as soon as possible.
