Much Business Diposed
Of at Chamber of
Mines Meeting
The regular monthly meeting of
the Alice Arm branch of the British Columbia Chamber of Mines
was held at the School House on
Monday evening. A large number of members were present and
much important business was disposed of.
President 0. Evindson presided
The minutes of the previous meeting were read by Secretary A. I).
Yorke and were adopted.
Discussion as to what steps were
being taken in regard to a geological survey of Alice Arm followed.
H. F. Kergin informed the meeting
that plans had been made for a
survey, conducted jointly by the
Federal and Provincial governments.
A letter was read by the secretary from the Vancouver headquarters of the Chamber of Mines
urgently requesting new ore samples, for display purposes at the
Vancouver and New Westminster
exhibitions. The Chairman emphasized the importance of forwarding these samples and hoped
everyone would co-operate.
A letter was presented by J,
Fiva to the secretary to be read.
It dealt at length with criticism
that had been directed by the press
of the province against a manager
of one of the local mines. Discussion followed the reading of the
letter, and the meeting decided
that it he laid on the table.
M. Petersen requested enlight-
meut of the new mining tax, and
in reply to the request H. F. Kergin stated that, as he did not have
a copy of the Act with him he
would rather be excused until he
had a copy of the Act before him.
Discussion regarding permanent
quarters for the looal branch foi-
lowed. It was finally decided to
erect a suitable building as early
as possible. It was deoided that
the secretary be instructed to write
the Department of Lauds in regard
to the granting or purchasing of a
lot, for the erection of a building,
and to forward a copy of the letter
to H. F. Kergin, M. L. A. A com-
mittee was appointed to gather
data in regard to a suitable building. They were composed of 0.
Evindson, A]. Falconer, M. Petersen, 0. Flint. The meeting was
then adjourned.
The Silver Crest Mines Co. recently purchased a 3-ton gasoline
launch at Prince Rupert. It will
be used by them during the summer in facilitating travel between
Alice Arm, Hastings Arm and
Anyox.   F. D. Rice made the pur-
Community League Calls
Public Meeting Re.
Gym. Plans
The League Council has called a
Public Meeting for Friday, June 1,
at 8.30 p.m., in Recreation Hall,
to consider the plans for the Gymnasium. Meanwhile the public is
earnestly exhorted to give due attention to the blue prints wluch
have been posted up around town,
and to be ready to offer opinions
and suggestions, and to come to a
final decision.
Construction should begin by the
First of July. Upon the advice of
General Manager Bocking the
League Council will endeavor to
keep within the limit of the $11000.
Of this money the insurance adjustment will provide $8000. the
League funds another $1000, and
the General Manager has intimat
ed temporary accomodation to the
extent of $1500. In connection
with the League's Refreshment
Parlor, Mr. Booking has very kind'
ly arranged that the costs of re
modelling will be defrayed by the
Company.
The A. C. L. Council has granted
the use of Recreation Hall to Christ
CliKreh for the annual concert oi
May 30, at 8 p.m. The new piano
for the Mine Hall has been purchased and will be installed as soon
as the Mine Club has constructed
a suitable place for its safe keeping.
The Reading Room at the Flats
has been equipped with better
lights. The matter of group insurance was referred to the Granby
Company. This typo of insurance
provide a life policy at the low
rate of $7 per $1000. The attempt
to obtain accident insurance for
athletes was shown to be too expensive an undertaking and accordingly the League will continue its
policy of the past in regard to injured players.
In connection with cleaning the
theatre a recommendation was
made to the Finance Committee
for the purchase of a vacuum olean-
er and a polisher which can also be
used on the gymnasium floor which
all agreed must be constructed of
hardwood. Once again score board
numbers for baseball will be purchased and hereafter the services
of the police will be enlisted to
eliminate any wanton destruction
of League property and to apprehend and punish offenders.
Preparing For July 1st.
Secretary Kelley has asked and
obtained permission from the
League Council to arrange for a gala
day in Anyox on the First of July,
the birthday of the Dominion, It
is probable that the Indians from
Kincolith will be invited to bring
football and baseball teams to compete with local talent. They will

Instructive Address At
P. T. A. Meeting
Choosing as his topic "Modernising the Curriculum", Mr.
Fordyce Clark, M. A., assistant
principal of the high sohool, entertained Monday's meeting of the
P. T. A. with a discussion of the
aims, fancied and real, of secondary
education. Touching upon the
findings of psychology and sociology iu regard to the present subjects of instruction, the speaker
showed how in a small high school,
even though dominated by the
matriculation requirements of a
university which few were likely
to attend, it should still be possible
to accomplish considerable toward
social efficiency. Echoing the
sentiments of recent lecturers, he
made an appeal for a greater de-
mocratisatiou of educational institutions, stressing the importance
of the Junior High School, a more
elastic curriculum, and a system of
accredited High Schools.
Strides Being Made In
City Beautification
The suggestion of this paper a
few weeks ago in regard to beautification seems to have been very
well timed. The most recent proponent of the "city beautiful"
proposal is the Anyox P. T. A.
which has set aside $25 as prizes
toward the promotion of gardens
by the children. Already at the
instance of Mr. Thorsteinsson,
nature teacher, there is a number
of excellent window boxes at the
Elementary School. The Committee of parents which will act with
the teachers includes Mrs. Dunn,
Rev. J. S. Brayfield, and Messrs.
Barclay, Kelley, and Warwick.
We suggest that very likely assistance and encouragement could be
obtained from J. W. Gibson, the
Director of Elementary Agricultural Education.
Additional Mining Properties Alice Arm Being
Acquired
The Tiger property which joins
the Toric on the north has been
taken over by eastern capitalists
and will be developed this year.
The same concern has also acquired the Kitsault group, which joins
the Tiger on the west and lies
across the river. The Tiger consists of three claims and the Kitsault five. The latter also adjoins
the Dolly Varden on the North.
Further particulars regarding the
deal are being withheld, but will
be given publicity in the near
future, together with plans for
development of the properties.
Negotiations are proceeding for
the acquisition of a large block of
the zinc properties on McGrath
mountain, and it is possible that
by the time this paper reaches our
readers they will have been satisfactorily completed. We hope to
give our readers a complete report
of the transaction. In addition to
the zinc properties, it is understood that the same company will
also acquire control of several silver properties in the lower Kitsault valley, extending from the
town to the LaRose mine.

Anyox School Children Will
Write Essay on A. C- L.
Carrying over an arrangement
made last year the League has
decided to grant prizes to High
School children for an essay entitled "Is the Community League
Worthwhile?" The matter was
recalled to them at Wednesday
night's meeting by Mr. Clark, assistant principal of the High School
who said that arrangements for
the actual writing had already
been completed. During general
discussion it was suggested by Mr.
Dunwoodie that the High School
children should be also encouraged
to solicit members for the Com-

basis. The Council heartily concurred.

Rich Ore Vein Located
Esperanza Mine
A shoot of high grade ruby silver ore has been encountered in the
Baldy tunnel at the Esperanza
mine. It is among the best discoveries ever made at this famous
property. The ore vein dips into
the hill, which gives greater depth
as mining is carried on. The ore
is uot broken up by dykes, as has
often been the case of other veins,
and it is expected to yield a large
tonnage.
The now camp at the mine will
be built immediately. It will be
at an elevation 200 feet lower than
the existing camp. As soon as the
camp construction is completed it
is hoped that the new compressor
plant will have arrived. Hand
drilling will then be discarded, and
the installation of power drills will
ncrease the ore tornmge production

E. MOSS, Editor and Publisher.
Claim owners in Canada-
according to a recent issue of the
Alice Arm and Anyox Herald-
are asking: "What constitutes a
fair price for an undeveloped mineral claimi and what terras should a
prospector give?"
In commenting editorially on the
above* question, Mining Truth,
which is published in Spokane says;
This is an old question with nearly
as many answers as there are individuals discussing it. Naturally
the prospector wants to get all he
can, and it is quite as natural that
the buyer should wish to pay no
more than absolutely necessary.
Without attempting to dispose
of this troublesome question for all
time, it is our belief that when the
prospector realizes that a decided
change has taken place during the
past ten or fifteen years and that
claims are not being sold readily
for high cash prices, as was once
true, then he will deal with the
prospective buyer in a different
manner.
The prospector, too often, is unable to do much development work,
due principally to lack of capital;
and again much of the work done
is badly scattered. The company
employing a scout is paying him to
find prospects that will justify some
intensive development.
Too often the scout turns down
a prospect because there is insufficient work done to enable him to
recommend it to his company, or
the price and terms are all out of
proportion to the showing. It may
be true, as the prospector so often
states, that the engineer is too conservative.   The engineer must be
willing to take some chances— the
prospector has taken his.
In addition to the above mentioned reasons for failure to sell
more prospects, there are many
other contributing factors that have
to be considered, such as, transportation, power, water, markets
and metal prices, character of ore
deposit, export and import duties,
laws, etc., etc.,
The organization looking for new
properties is carrying out a definite
business policy. It is quite essential that the prospector realizes that
he too is in business, the business
of finding supplies of raw material
for the manufacturers. When he
does realize this and makes a
systematic effort to carry on as a
business man, he „ will succeed
where he now fails.
If a fair price is put on the prospect and the development company
permitted to carry out some definite
exploration program before any
cash is paid, a long step toward the
solution of this vexing proplem will
have been made.
Of course the definition of a
"fair price" is difficult— the prospector should not attempt to make
a fortune out of every deal, nor
should the buyer try to get the
prospect for too low a price; a
reasonable attitude on the part of
both parties will usually result in a
fair compromise.

BRITISH   COLUMBIA
The Mineral Province of Western Canada
Has produced Minerals as follows: Placer Gold, $78,018,548; Lode Gold. $126,972,318; Silver, $80,-
787,003; Lead, $100,976,442; Copper, $209,967,068; Zinc, $50,512,557; Coal and Coke, $284,699,133;
Structural Materials and Miscellaneous Minerals, $50,175,407, making its mineral production to the end
of 1926, show an
Aggregate Value of $988,108,470
The substantial progress of the Mining industry of this Province is strikingly exhibited in the following
figures, which show the value of production for successive five-year periods: For all years to 1895, inclusive $94,547,241; forfive years, 1896-1900, $57,607,967; for five years, 1901-1905, $96,507,968; for five yeare-
1906-1910, $125,534,474; for five years, 1911-1915, $142,072,603; for five years, 1916-1920, $189,922,725;

Production Last Ten Years, $429,547,755
Lode mining has only been in progress for about 25 years, and only about one-half of the Province has
been even prospected; 200,000 square miles of unexplored mineral bearing land are open for prospecting.
The Mining Laws of this Province are more liberal and the fees lower than those of any other Province
in the Dominion, or any Colony in the British Empire.
Mineral locations are granted to discoverers for nominal fees.
Absolute Titles are obtained by developing such properties, security of which is guaranteed  by
Crown Grants.
Practically all British Columbia Mineral Properties upon which development work has been done
. . are described in some one of the Annual Reports of the Minister of Mines. Those considering
mining investments should refer to such reports. They are available without charge on application
to the Department of Mines, Victoria, B. C. Reports covering eaoh of the six mineral Survey
Districts are published separately, and are available on application. Reports of the Geological
Survey of Canada, Winch Building, Vancouver, are recommended as valuable sources of inform" tion.

n Ontario Mining Promoter Draws Sentence
Fred Reinke, a Toronto mining
'promoter, was arraigned before
Police Magistrate Blake at Brant-
ford, Ont., on March 29 on charges
of obtaining $11,680 by selling
stock which proved to be worthless.
He pleaded guilty, and admitted
that the piece of quartz shown to
the people he defrauded did not
come from the property he was
selling. He was sentenced to six
years' imprisonment.
Mining Tax Changed In
Northwest Territories
An important change has been
made by the Canadian Government
in the royalties on mines in Yukon
and Northwest territories. It
appears in a bill to amend the Yukon Mining Act, and although the
bill does not state that the proposed
scale of royalties shall be applied to
the provinces of Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba, Charles Stewart, Canadian Minister of the Interior, says that this will be done by
Order in Council. Mining companies, according to the new scale, will
pay 3 per cent on earnings in excess
of $10,000 and up to $1,000,000;
5 per cent on earnings from
$1,000,000 to $5,000,000; 6 per
cent on earnings from $5,000,000
to $10,000,000; and an increase of
1 per cent for each additional
$5,000,000.
At present mining companies are
compelled to pay royalties on production, regardless of profits.

Annual Report Granby
Company For Year
]927
Following is a portion of the
Annual Report of the Granby Consolidated Mining, Smelting and
Power Co. Space this week does
not permit the publication of the
whole report, but it will be concluded next week.
Colonel J. T. Crabbs, President
of the company presents the report
of the directors, while Mr. Bocking
presents the operating report. In
addition there is submitted the income statement and  balance  sheet.
Col. Crabbs reports in part as
follows: From an operating standpoint, the results for the year were
quite satisfactory, increased efficiency, being manifested in the several
departments and recoveries from
mill operations reaching new high
levels. At the Anyox plant, some
additional costs were incurred by
the enforced substitution of the
more expensive steam for hydroelectric power during the winter
months, due to the unusual water
shortage. At Allenby, the run-of.
mine ore averaged lower in gracie
than for the previous year, with a
consequent reduction in output of
copper per ton of ore treated and
an increase in cost per pound.
Revenues were adversely affected
by the prevailing low price for copper, which, for the year, averaged
]4 cents  per  pound  less   than   in
1926. This difference in price applied to 1927 production, amounts to
$475,000. Notwithstanding these
conditions, the operating income for
1927, after provision for bond interest, amounted to $1,428,579.50,
which is equivalent to $3.22 per
share of stock outstanding at the
close of the year.
"During the year, cash in the
amount of $1,200,900 was applied
to the retirement of the remaining
6 per cent First Mortgage bonds by
direct purchase or by deposit of
funds therefor with the trustee under the mortgage. The $2,469,200
of Convertible Debentures outstanding at the first of the year were all
retired, principally through conversion and the balance called for cash.
The total bonds thus retired during
the year amounted to $3,670,100,
carrying an annual interest charge
of $244,898, which the company no
longer has to bear. On July 1,
1927, a cash distribution was made
to stockholders of $1 per share,
amounting to $432,262.20.
