{Option Taken on Dolly
Varden Mine by New
York Capitalists
-—*—- \
By far the best news concerning
the Dolly Varden mine wasreceived
this week, in a despatch from Victoria, which stated that it is understood that New York capitalists
have taken an option on the Dolly
Varden nfline. The option is likely
to be exeroisod, it is said, and work
may be resumed at the mine in the
near future. If an option has been
taken with the intention of developing the Dolly Varden and Wolf
properties, it is unlikely that
owing to the lateness of the season
that operations will be commenced
this year. If, however, the properties are put in operation next spring
and the railroad. repaired, it will
give considerable encouragement
to various property owue'rs of the
Upper Kitsault country, who are
waiting for operation of the railway before developing their properties. It will also mean an influx
of capital into the camp, mining
companies' having been marking
time waiting for a resumption of
mining operations at the Dolly
Varden and the continued operation
of the railway.
The Dolly Varden has beenolosed
since December 1920 except, for a
little development work in? 1921,
and the shipping of. 1874 tons of
ore yielding 45,648 ozs. of silver.
Social League Formed
at Alice Arm
A well attended meeting was
held in the Anglican Church on
Tuesday evening, for the purpose
. of forming an organization to provide entertainment for the coining
The ohair'was occupied .by* E.
Moss who explained that it was
proposed that the organization should be along similiar
lines as the Debating Society of last
After some discussion regarding
the aims of the organization, etc.
a motion,was made by Mr. Al.
Falconer seconded by Mr. C; H.
Hutchinson that an organization
be formed.
Election of officers was then
held and the following officers were
elected: M*. C. Drennen, president;
Mrs. R. F. McGinnis. vice-president;
Mr. T. W. Falconer, secretary-
treasurer; Mr. E. Moss, ohairman.
Disoussion followed as to the
scope of operations, a suitable building for the various entertainments
and the collection of finances. As
no arrangements had been made
for the use of any building it was
impossible to outline a programme
and a motion was made by Mr. C.
E. Hutchinson, seconded by Mr.
E. R. Oatman that future plans be
left in the hands of officers, who
would no doubt arrange for some
entertainment at an early date.

on citizens of the town for help from
time to time, and a generous
response is anticipated.

Does Newspaper
Advertising Pay?
This has come to be|superfluous
question among men of business.
There was a time when to have
declared boldly and out loud in a
public place that it paid to adver-
. rise in the newspapers would probably have stirred up a chorus of
dissenters, but today advertising is
better understood.
All advertising is good-some
advertising is better-but the very
best advertising on the face of the
earth is that which slips into the
home-town paper and goes direct
to the home.
To'be sure the. best bit of soil
that ever lay out of doors requires
something more than merely dropping the seed into the ground.
Give your newspaper advertising
its due co-operation, have the copy
properly written, and if you, are
not sure you can write it so it will
get results, have someone who
knows how to write it, and newspaper advertising will do its full
share every time.
It is a fact noticed by observing
people that while one person will
always have poor health in a certain locality another person of different tastes and character will enjoy
his best health, in that particular
place. When we enquire into
the cause of it we learn' that the
one'who had poor health was
I discontented, and out of harmony
with the surroundings, whilst the
other was contented and happy
because it appealed to his nature.
That which was congenial to one
was disagreeable to the other.
Did you ever give a moment's thought
to hours of duty that are put in daily

so many ways in which you can assist

everybody can do without the slightest inconvenience to themselves.

B.C. Ranks High as Field for
British Investors
British Columbia's credit in Great
Britain is higher that at any time in
the past, states Hon. John Hart, minister of finance, who has just returned
after a two month's visit to the Old
Country. While there the minister
studied the financial situation and
found interest in British Columbia
securities rapidly increasing. At
present, said Hon. Mr. Hart, Great
Britain, in common with other European nations, had a' greatfmany in vol
ved financial problems to solve
and until some of these had been dealt
with Canada could not expect a tremendous inflow of British capital.
However, he predicts that within a
short time British money will seek
investment in this country and particularly in British Columbia, where the
great wealth of natural' resources
promises such big returns from developing enterprises.
According to an unofficial report
from the Slocan distriot, the Alexander interests of England, represented by Major James Anderson
ofKaslo, will ahtirtly reopen the
Jaokson mines in the Jackson basin.
The property consists of the Northern Belle, Kootenay Star, Labor
Day, Ophir, Congress and Dublin
Queen, all early looations. The
property is equipped with oonoen-
trator and tramway and
has shipped' ' approximately
4000 tons of high-grade silver-lead
concentrates in the past. It has
been idle for approximately 15 years
R. H. Stewart, formerly general
manager ofthe Consolidated Mining and Smelting Company of

While much depends upon foreign
buying and news price trend seems
to be upward, with probability that
price; will rise to around 13 3-4
cents delivered by first of next week,
European .buying is general, with
France still the best buyer. Orient
is buying only moderately. British
buying appears to be mainly aside ship
at present time. Most of Europe's
buying is for fairly prompt shipment.
■ Price of electrolytic copper for domestic shipment is 181-2 to 13 6-8 cents
a pound delivered to end of November
Price aside ship is 13.65 to 13.60 cents

Domestic production Is about in line
with home consumption, If consumption should increase, Mexican lead
would come into the market in this
country instead of going to Europe.
| Lead consumption, in common with
other metals was at its peak for the
year last March, when the price was
8.25 cents a pound New York. At
that time, domestic production was
inadequate to meet home consumption
and considerable Mexican lead was
used; but for several months virtually
the entire Mexican output, now
averaging about 15,000 tons a month
has been going to Europe, as Spanish
and Australian production has been
insufficient to supply the, market.

Repair Work on Kettle Valley
Railway Holds Up Copper
Owing to difficulties whioh have
been encountered by the Kettle
Valley Railway Company in the
work of repairing the spur line to
Allenby and Copper mountain,, it
is now evident that a much later
date than at first estimated will be
required for tho completion of the
job. October 15th. was the date
formerly fixed upon but it is now
certain that a much longer time
will be required.
In view of this the oopper company which was speeding up its
alterations and improvements at
both mill and mine, preparatory to
commencing mining at an earlier
date how find it expedient to ease
up in the work, as thorp is no object
in pushing through and then having
to wait for; the railway crew to
complete their work.
In consequence of this about 25
of the 1Q men employed at the
Mountain have been laid off, temporarily, during the last few days.
There preparations for the mining
of ore are, well advanced and the
reduoed force will have no difficulty
in completing what work remains
to be done and the reduction in the
number of workmen at that place
is very slight, amounting practice
ally to only some half dozen whose
services could best be dispensed
with'. Married men have been
retained on the job and only the
services of single men dispensed
with.—Princeton Star.. '

The last new ore body encountered in No. 1 tuiiuel is the best so
far opened, aud is developing favorably. So satisfactory is it proving that diamond drilling has been
contracted for to prove more
expeditiously the ore bodies in
advance of No. 1. tunnel and also
to determine the ore bodies directly
under the new strike near the face
of No. 1 tunnel working at greater
depth and in advance of the face
of No. 3 tunnel. Actual drilling
on the surface will commence before
the 1st. of October and should be
completed within six weeks, by
which time the new ore body in No.
1 tunnel will be sufficiently explored
to approximately demonstrate its
extent and value, and "should the
drill hole prove successful in cutting
the ore expected, the management
will be enabled to jcnbw the capacity
of the plant required for the mine
and mill.
