Rising Silver Prices May
Start Mining Activity
In District
The action of the United States
government to nationalize silver, is
received with great satisfaction by
Alice Arm people. This decision
means that 25 per cent, of the statutory metallic reserve against the
lawful paper currency of that country will hereafter be silver.
The issuance of $100,000,000
worth of silver certificates is but a
start along that line and more such
certificates will be printed from
time to time. This will mean that
the United States government will
become a large purchaser of silver
and this should result in a substantial rise in the price of silver. It is
very possible that other countries
will re-monetize silver, when satisfactory results have been attained
in the United States. All the countries of the world within the last
100 years were on a
standard and it is very probable
that now the United States has led
ihe way back to it, other nations
will follow suit. Even if they do
not it is quite possible that during
the next few months silver prices
will rise high enough so that many
inactive mining properties in the
Alice Arm and Stewart districts
can be operated successfully.
Dr. J. T. Mandy Pays Visit
Dr. J. T. Mandy, resident mining engineer, arrived at Anyox on
Friday from Prince Rupert in
order to make an examination of
mining properties in the district,
iuoluding the new gold discovery
at Hastings Arm.
On Wednesday he arrived at Alice
Arm, where he will also examine
properties and left yesterday for
the Upper Kitsault Country. Dr.
Mandy will leave Alice Arm for
Stewart on Friday next. He is
aocompanied by Mrs. Mandy who
is stopping at the Alice Arm
Hotel during the ooming week.
Miss Kathleen Eve Wins
Tennis Championship
Miss Kathleen Evo won the ladies' Singles Tennis Championship
ou Wednesday, when she defeated
Miss Mi Leighton by the soore of
7-5,1-6, 6-1.
In the men's Singles Championship games, Sontkay defaulted to
F. Gordon; The latter was defeated in the semi-finals by Ross Oatman.
Elks Win Opener  Of
Final Series
Stubborn Defence Feature
Close Game
Although they strongly outhit
their opponents the Elks had to depend on a critical miscue by Tuscoe
Turner to spore a single run. Each
team contributed only two errors,
which is about the best fieldingi
performance this year. The Elks
failed to score in the first inning on
four successive hits, and the crowd
was treated to three fast double
plays, two at the expense of the
victors. Lazorek although hit freely, rallied consistently in the pinches. Chenoski was in his customary
fine fettle and all owed the Oddfellows a paltry three hits. It is not
much trouble for a ball club to win
behind such pitching. Allan and
Hopkinson    both   tripled   though
neither was able to score.

Advertise in the Herald
Fielding of Elks' Team Was
Somewhat Ragged
Shades of 1906! The Oddfellows
could only get to Roy Hopkinson
for one hit last night and that man i
was caught trying to stretch it, but
they managed to turn in a 2-0 win.
It has made the fans hark back to
those "Hitless Wonders" the Chicago White Sox of 1906 who annexed a World's Championship on
nothing more than pitching and
nerv?. The Oddfellows scored
twice in the first inning on a series
of errors, McColl being their chief
benefactor, and this ended the scoring for the entire game.
Both teams were belligerent and
Umpire Stephens had his hands full.
The Elks disputed a quick delivery
by Hardy but the Umpire upheld
the pitcher. In the sixth Stephens
reverted a "foul strike" call to that
of "hit batter" on a bean ball on
Red McColl.
The Oddfellows protested so vehemently that the Umpire banished
Roy Hardy. Maybe this apparent
misfortune is what really saved the
game for the boys from the flats,
for Charlie Musser breezed them
right past the Elks thereafter.
Between the many disputes and
the time out for injuries to Cody
and McColl a lot of time was lost.
Stephens called the game at the
end of the sixth.

The Honourable George S. Pearson, Minister of Mines, has announced the issuance of Bulletin
No. 1, "Summary and Review of
the Mineral Industry of British
Columbia, for the six months ended
June 30, 1934." This Bulletin,
compiled by A. M. Richmond, Resident Mining Engineer, contains an
estimate of the mineral production
for the period under review, brief
reports on their Districts by the
Resident Mining Engineers, and a
statement on the coal output by the
Chief Inspector of Mines.
The gross value of the mineral
production of British Columbia for
the six months ended June 30th.,
1934, is estimated at $18,667,691,
an increase of $6,259,707, or 50.5
percent, over $12,407,984, the estimated value of the production in
the corresponding six-month period
of 1933. a
The total value of the metallic
production (lode and placer gold,
copper, silver, lead and zinc mining
output) for the six-month period
was $14,988,271, an increase of
$5,806,287, (63.2 per cent) over
$9,181,984, the figure for the corresponding period in 1933. This
substantial and very gratifying increase was due primarily to materially increased production of lead,
zinc, copper, gold and silver. Coal
production also increased by approximately 61,000 tons, or 10.3
per cent, over the corresponding
production in 1933. The output of
miscellaneous metals and minerals
shows a marked increase, while
there was a slight decrease in the
production of structural materials
The tonnage of metalliferous ores
mined in the province in the period
under review was 2,321,400 tons,
an increase of 521,400 tons, or 28.9
per cent, over the figure for the
corresponding period in 1933.
This increase in tonnage is due to
expanded outputs at the Britannia
mine, the Sullivan mine and the
Monarch mine, and new and increased production from several
small gold mines.

Big Increase in Mineral
Production In B.C.
During 1934
All Metals Show Substantial
Continued from page 1
Report gold production showed a
decided increase, particularly in the
lode-gold section of the industry.
The combined gold-production figures totalled $2,997,988 for the
half-year,as compared with $2,292,-
946 in the comparative period of
1933, an increase of $705,042, or
30.7 per cent. These figures are
calculated with gold at the standard
price, in addition to which a very
substantial premium was enjoyed
by the gold-producers. This premium averaged 67.7 per cent during
the six-month period under review,
and it is estimated that approximately $2,030,136 was received in
"premium" by the producers.
Therefore the total return in Canadian funds to the gold-producers
of British Columbia during the first
six months of 1934 was approxim
ately $5,028,124, an increase of
81.3 per cent over the return in
Canadian funds received during the
first half of 1933. On this basis
the value of the gold production
was greater than that of any other
metal or mineral produced. Gold
was followed by lead, zinc, coal,
copper and silver in the order
named in point of value of production. This estimated gold production of $5,028,124,is somewhat less
than half of the total estimated
production for 1934, namely,$11,-
500,000. However as several of
the smaller operations have only
recently come into production, and
as the figures for the first half of
1934 do not reflect increased production which will be made during
the latter part of 1934 at the Brae-
lorne and Pioneer through the ad
dition of extra milling facilities, it
is confidently expected that the
1934 estimate will be reached and
in all probability slightly exceeded.
Including premium, the price of
gold averaged $34.67 per fine ounce
for the half-year ended June 30th.,
Silver production, estimated at
4,150,000 oz., valued at $1,867,708
shows an increase of 59.7 per cent
over the corresponding period in
1933. This increase was caused by
increased production fron the Sul-
ivan mine and also from the Beav-
erdell mines. Due to the increase
Iii the price of silver, averaging
about S'/( cents per ounce above
the price obtainable in the first half
ot 1933, more interest in this phase
of the industry has been shown,
and with but a furthur slight advance in the price obtainable for
this metal there should be a considerable expansion in silver-mining
in the Province.
Copper production of 25,050,000
lb., with an estimated value of
$2,030,753, shows an increase in
value of 78.6 per cent. This increase in production is mainly due
lo increased output at the Britannia
mine. The Hidden Creek and
Bonanza mines of the Granby Company are producing at capacity but
the Copper Mountain plant still remains idle. ,
The lead production of the province, amounting to 161,560,000 lb.
forthe first six months of 1934,
was valued at $4,162,917, an increase in value of 51.2 per cent,
over the corresponding period in
1933.     .
The zinc output for the half year
was 117,780,000 lb., or almost
twice that obtained in the first half
of 1933.
New Mining Bulletin Issued
By Government
A new and informative bulletin
entitled "The Mineral Industry of
British Columbia" has been released
for distribution by the Honourable
George S. Pearson, Minister of
Mines. It includes a short his'tory
of mining, a synopsis of mining
laws, data of value to prospectors,
dealing in particular with elementary placer mining methods, statistics of mineral production to date
and a brief summary of the progress of mining during the past
year. There is set out a complete
list of the personnel of the Department, together with the names and
addresses of the Gold Commissioners and Mining Recorders and an
account of the activities of the
Department in its several branches
in the course of 1933.
Bright Future Predicted For
Silver By U.S.A. Authority
Nevada Mining Bulletin
James A. Farley, postmaster
general and reputed key man of the
Roosevelt administration, stated in
an address at Reno a few days ago,
that the president was firmly behind
the administration silver program;
that "he has just begun and will
never quit until silver is restored,"
which undoubtedly means $1.29 an
ounce for the white metal.
"What the president wants" Mr.
Farley declared, is this 1,300,000,-
000 ounces of silver so as to increase our silver currency. He
knows that the removal of this silver from the world markets will
gradually but surely raise the price
to the limit of $1.29 an ounce."

United Empire Cuts Big
Ore Body at Depth
The Stewart News
While exact details are not available, there seems to be some real
foundation for the report current on
the street this week that the United
Empire has encountered, in the
long tunnel, some 30 odd feet of
what appears to be good milling
grade ore at a depth said to be
roughly 300 feet below the surface.
According to the report this ore
appears to occur in a large mineralized zone paralleling .the main
showing,which it is anticipated will
be reached with about another 50
feet of tunneling.
The first shipment of high grade
ore, amounting to a carload was
sent to the Consolidated Mining and
Smelting Co. at Trail.
