Mining Industry of Alice
Arm Will Expand
During Year
Already plans are being made by
owners of mineral claims in the
Alioe Arm district for developing,
and several group* will bedevejop-,
ed as far as the resources of the
owners will allow. This year promises the execution of a much
larger programme of development
work than has yet been undertaken,
"ami mining claim owners are confident that this year will witness
the. commencement of work by
mining companies that will ultimately develop several properties
into producing mines, in addition
to those already producing.
The bonding of four groups of
claims last October by Victor
Spencer and associates of Vancouver, occurred too late for any
beneficial effect, and it is expected
that the fact that these claims are
being developed will awaken
greater interest iu the camp, and
.that other compauies will acquire
ground, providing reasonable terms
'are given, before the choicest
olaims are taken up.
Viewing the future from an
.impartial poir.t of view, prospects
,or a big expansion was never
brighter in the history of the camp.
It is certain that Victor Spencer
and associates will carry out a
large programme of development
work on the four properties bonded,
with the possibility of also developing the Dolly Varden and Wolf,
which they control.
I Every mining company operating last year will also resume
activities on a larger scale. It is
very probable that plans will be
matured whereby the Esperanza
will again be operating. Lack of
funds has been the sole cause of the
cessation of operations, and with a
resumption it is understood that
ample funds will be available both
for mining and the construction of
| ,a concentrating mill.
Zinc   is a   mineral   for' which
there   is an increasing   demand,
and the price maintains  a level
that makes for profitable   mining.
Within a few miles of Alice Arm,
on McGrath mountain large deposits of this ore exists, some of

Midnight Crowd of 450
at Elks New Year
On New Year'sEve the Elks put
on one of the most successful dances
of the year in the Gymnasium at
the Beach. The hall decoration
was one of the outstanding features
which attracted the attention of
everyone upon entering the hall.
The colors were purple and white,
which draped the ceiling to the
sides of the building in drooping
ribbons closely spaced together.
At the far end of the hall an electric illumination was displayed
wishing everybody a Happy New
Year. Those bent on spending the
night in the pleasure of the Torp-
sichorean art began to arrive at
9 p.m. and within an hour the hall
presented a very happy appearance
with couples dancing to the music
of the Mine Melodians Orchestra,
who certainly did justice to the
By 11.30 p.m, the dancers were
armed with balouns, blow-outs,
fans, oaps aud noses and miles of
serpentine was floating around the
floor. As the hour approached
midnight, the dancers were found
welcoming the New Year by dancing and others shaking hands
wishing each other the best of good
wishes for the year 1927. At this
hour there were over 450 present
iu the hall.
A very tasty supper was put on
in the Banquet Hall downstairs.
The Beach Cafe catered for this
affair, and two sittings had to be

Dances New Year
In and Old Out
The old year was danced out and
the new year was ushered in by a
large light-hearted throng at the
Alice Arm Hotel, who were the
guests of Mr. aud Mrs. 0. Evindson.
Dancing commenced at 9 p.m.
and shortly before midnight a
circle two-step was commenced, in
which everyone joined, and the
new year was born, everyone wished everyone else a happy new year,
accompanied by vigorous handshaking as they ciroled the floor.
''Auld Lang Syne" was also lustily
sang" with everyone holding hands.
The happy throng commenced
dispersing for home in the small
hours, after having spent a very
enjoyable evening.
Thanks are due to Mr. and Mrs.
Evindson who acted as hosts and
provided a very appetising supper.
The orchestra comprised Mrs. J.
Graham, J. Trinder and C. Hutchinson, who were tireless in their
efforts to provide the necessary
punch. Although small in number,
they provided excellent music,
which added largely to the evening's enjoyment.

The annual report of Keystone
Mining Company has recently been
sent to the shareholders, and shows
that more work has been done at
the mine during the past year than
ever before. On the property,
whioh is in the Alice Arm district,
a tunnel has been driven a distance
of 430 feet in which rail track and
ore cars hove been installed, and
many other additions made to the
property. The new tunnel parallels a good shoot of ore, and is
headed for the main ore body,
which it is expected to reach within another 200 feet. Plans are already made to continue operations
at the mine next spring, when,it is
the intention to block out ore

Portland Canal News
By the payment of $20,000 cash
and signing a bond to pay the balance of $125,000 insider of three
years in four payments, the Premier Gold Mining Co. has acquired
a 52 per cent interest in the Prosperity group of seven claims on the
north fork of Marmot river.
This; without doubt, is the finest
deal made on a mining property in
British Columbia iu the last two
The Prosperity is owned by F.
R. Jancowski, Eli Watland, G. D.
Davis, Geo. Mehlfeld and L. E.
Jancowski. ' It adjoins the Porter
Idaho, which has been somewhat
of a spectacular producer, although
handicapped by having to pay $50
a ton to get its ore to tidewater.
As reported a short time ago tire
Prosperity owners received $6,500
from the Trail smelter for 30 tons
of ore. It is freely admitted by the
owners of the property, and must
have been recognized by the purchasers, that au amount of oVe
worth more than the cash payment
has been exposed by development.
The Melvin group of five olaims
owned by Mr. and Mrs. N. H.
Stevens,of Hyder, was optioned
under a holding agreement before
the present deal was made. This
option is for $60,000, but the exact
terms of the payments are not
made public.
Owney McFadden of Stewart,
George Brown, St. Francis Hotel
Vancouver, and Eli Watland of
Stewart have also entered into the
big deal with a claim each, bonding
for $20,000.
This makes 15 olaims which the
Premier organization has secured
in the Marmot section. What
their development plan is, remains
to be seen.

Not only did Anyox and Alice
Arm enjoy a prosperous year
throughout 1926, but a perusal of
newspapers from every part of the
province, received at the Herald
Office reveals that prosperity, was
widespread. The province as a
whole is marching hand in hand
with prosperity, and good progress
is being made in every industry.
There is likelihood also of new
industries being added during the
present year, and given world peace
and good business-like government
still more rapid progress will be
made as the years chase each
other along. The wildwest hectic
booms of a few years ago seems to
have permanently passed away.
The present state of prosperity is
built of sounder materials that will
endure for all time. Every industry
or the province is shown to be in a
healthy state. Lumbering, agriculture, paper making, fishing, and
mining are responsible for our big
exports and large payrolls, and on
these hinges the prosperity of the
whole population. In order that
the output of these industries be
increased, capital is necessary, especially in regard to mining, which
requires large capital for development purposes. The mining industry is the key to increased prosperity. As new mines are opened
up, concentrators, and smelters
built, a market is created for both
labor and material. Every other
industry reaps benefits from an
increased home market. The
mining industry is gaining strength
each year. But it should increase
even more than at present. What
mining means to the province is not
yet understood by those living outside of mining towns. The larger
our mineral output the more money
is put in circulation, which percolates through the pockets of everyone.
Prince Rupert on Map
As Grain Port'
Prince Rupert is now well on
the map as a grain shipping port.
Eight ocean going vessels have
taken on full cargoes of grain since
October 17 when the first ship
arrived. This means that two
million bushels or more of grain
have passed through the port in
that time. The average so far has
not been quite a boat a week but
this will probably be improved
during the months of January and
February. By the end of the grain
shipping season it is estimated
thatsome thirty or forty boats will
have loaded.
The harbour of New Westminster is growing. Last year 180
deep-sea vessels entered that port,
in comparison with 150 the pre
vious year.
"This may hurt yon a little,"
said the absent-minded dentist as
he handed the patron a bill.
Ontario May   Become
Copper Producer
Great interest continues to be
shown in the copper possibilitis of
the region in northern Ontario
lying west of the Quebec boundary.
Half a dozen townships have been
thoroughly prospected. Hundreds
of claims have been staked and
many interesting discoveries made
The southern half of Ben Nevis
Township has been pretty solidly
staked. The southeast part of
Clifford has all been taken np, and
iu Pontiac, Tannihill, Dokis and
Marriott active staking has been
done. Good mineralization has
been shown on a number of claims
in Ben Nevis. The construction of
the Noranda smelter has led to a
revival of interest in some'bf tjhe
old copper properties of Ontario,
where operations ha? bten discou-
on account of the long haul to a
smelter.in New Jersey, which
rendered production unprofitable.

Marmot Metals Mining
Company's Position
Annual   Report    of    Manager
Details Work Accomplished and
Outlines Future Plans
Portland Canal Newt
■ Prospects for the Marmot Metals
Mining Co. property developing into
a valuable mine are extremely bright
according: to the report of Managing Director .Angus McLeod pre-
senteot'at'.the annual meeting of the
company. The directors are convinced of this and everyone .who has
visited the property is of the same
'opinion, including a number of field
engineers representing operating
companies, several of whom have
asked whether an option ior purchase could be obtained. These
were given free hand to make examinations, and told to submit
their propositions, which would be
considered by the company.
The Marmot Metals group consists of eight claims and two
fractions most of which were
staked in 1911 by H. C. Magee, G.
W. Bruggy and Angus McLeod.
The company, was organized in the
spring of 1925, the capitalization
being $1,500,000 divided into
3,000,000 shares, of which the
vendors took 1,000,000 in full payment for the property. This left
2,000,000 shares in the treasury, of
which 320,000 have been sold, leaving the control of the company still
in the treasury.
4 Development started in May,
<j925. A tunnel was driven 183
feet on the Peach No. 2 claim, opening up two ore shoots of zinc blende
and galena that averaged 200 oz. in
silver. This tunnel, the manager
says, should be extended 300 feet
to intersect the argillite contact
which carries a cross vein of galena
that has been traced for 300 feet on
the surface. Beyond this are two
other veins that can only be opened
up by the extension of this tunnel.
On the Montana claim a tunnel.
was driven 117 feet and a crosscut
6S feet to intersect the Montana
vein. By extending this tunnel 150
feet it would have a depth of 100
feet below the old Montana workings from which shipments of high
grade ore were made in 1914,'15
and '16.
Surface prospecting disclosed a
number of veins all worthy of
tlevelopment,  including an import-
zinc ore on
ant showing of
Horseshoe claim.
Work was suspended in November and resumed May 1, 1926.
Surface stripping on the zinc zone
disclosed several veins from two to
15 feet in width and traced for distances varying from 200 to 700 feet.
The predominating value is in zinc,
but the ore also carries gold and
silver, with some copper. Three
tunnels were driven aggregating
110 feet, the longest being 75 feet.
The entire face of this is in ore,
with the width of the vein not determined. By expending this tunnel
650 feet on the vein a depth of 540
feet will be secured. The ore has
been traced from the portal of this
down the hill for a distance of 1000
feet. The ore is of good milling
grade and lies in very large bodies.
Camps have been established and
a great amount of trail work done,
some of which was quite difficult,
necessitating blasting around a very
steep hillside. The most serious
problem is transportation (which is
no problem at all compared with
what most of the leading properties
have to face.) The property is
reached by wagon road 2J^ miles
from the beach to the forks of the
river, then three miles of horse trail
to the foot of Marmot mountain
below the property, from which the
camp is reached by foot trail. The
manager recommends the construction of a tramline from the camp to
the foot of the glacier, a distance of
4000 feet, which could be easily
reached by an extension of the
present wagon road.
Under present conditions it is not
practical to carry on work during
the winter, but development, in
eluding the extension of tunnels
and more surface exploration, will
resume in the spring as soon as
climatic conditions will permit.

Geo.  Beaudin
famous as the discoverer of
the South Pole' and renowned
Arctic explorer, climbed into the
cab to get "shot" with Engineer
Miller by newspaper cameramen
during his short stop a few days
ago at the Canadian National
station in Winnipeg, en route to
New York to sail for Europe.
Although it was his first visit to
Canada, Capt. Amundsen was unable to make any lengthy stops on
his trip from the Pacific to the Atlantic over National lines on his
journey to Spitzbergen, where he
joins the crew of sixteen pilots and
explorers on the proposed "Rome
to Nome" trip by dirigible, this
spring. His objective on this newest mode of exploration is to fly

his fellow countrymen and prominent Canadians greeted him at
stations along the line' to wish the
intrepid captain all success in his
