New Ore Discovery Is
^     Made on Moose
J. Strombeek, who has spent
considerable time this summer in
close prospecting the Moose property has discoveted a vein of solid
galena ore, carrying good silver
values. The vein has been traced
for several hundred feet, and has a
width varying from 18 inches to 6
feet. Samples brought down show
it to be a massive high grade ore.
An ore showing, composed of high
grade grey copper ore, carrying
silver values was also discovered,
and it is expected that further work
will show that the two veins merge.
Mr. Strombeek intends to further
develop the new discovery this fall
by surface stripping and open cuts.
The Moose adjoins the Wolf
property in tbe Upper Kitsault
country, and is owned by J. Strom-
beck and Miles Donald. Considerable development work has been
done on the property at various
times by tunnels on the larger ore
bodies, of which silver is the predominating metal. The results of
development have been very encouraging, but the present low
price of silver does not encourage
further development on an extensive

It was announced that there
will be four leagues in operation

the Senior A league, two in the
Senior B. league, and two in the
Intermediate league, as well as two
teams in the Ladies' league.
It is planned,, according to the

the Intermediate team alternating
on the next basketball night.
The season is scheduled to open

it, three big games for one thin
dime, what could be sweeter.

The Granby Consolidated Mining
Smelting & Power Co. Ltd. has
reduced its dividend payable to
shareholders on November 1, of
record October 17, from 75c. to
50c. her share.
Dividends in the form of capital
distribution amounted to $2 per
share for the first two quarters of
the current year. The distribution
on August 1 was reduced to 75c.
per share and now a further cut is
announced, reflecting the company's
diminishing earnings, caused by
the low copper prices.
The company is now producing
its copper at a consolidated cost of
nine cents per pound from its Anyox
and Allenby properties, after crediting precious metals and miscellaneous income to copper before depreciation writeoffs. Costs for the
second quarter of the year were
9.95 cents; for the first quarter,
12.07 cents, and for the full year of
1929, 10.614.—Financial News.
All copper mining companies of
North and South America have
been forced to. reduce their dividends since the decline in copper
prices commenced this year.

Kitsault  Co.   Develop
Rich Gold-Copper
Ore Body
This season's work on the hold
ings of the Kitsault River Mining
and Development Co. at the Kitsault Glacier has developed a considerable body of ore carrying good
gold values in addition to copper,
states A. Smith who recently made
on examination cf the property aud
who returned to Vancouver on
Mr. Smith was greatly enthused
with the body of gold-copper ore
that has been developed this year
by J. Fiva and brothers. Work
this year is concentrated on what
is known as the spar vein. This
vein was stripped for several hundred feet, and it was found that it
connected with another vein on the
north which was discovered some
years ago.
Samples from this latter vein
have given as high as $48.50 in
gold and 31 per cent, oopper per
ton. Owing to the dry warm
summer in the Upper Kitsault
country whioh was favorable for
development work in the vicinity
of the glacier, it was deoided to
explore this vein. Development
work shows the vein matter to be!
18 feet wide in which chalcopyrite
copper is abundant. Large copper
nuggets were found, which carry
free gold.
In addition to this splendid ore
body, samples taken from the Fox
tunnel at a lower elevation, have
given assay returns of $26.00 in
gold per ton.
This discovery of gold, both free
and in pyrites, in what is known as
the Upper Kitsault copper belt will
probably be instrumental in opening up a new important property
independent of silver, which in the
past has been the predominant
metal in the development of the

Results of Ladder Games
Anyox Tennis Club
For This Year
The final results of the 1930
Ladder competitions show that Mr
Ross Oatman won the Gent's Ladder with a good margin over Jerry
Macintyre tlie runner-up. Angus
Cavers finished third.
In the Ladies' Competition, Mrs.
J. Smith won with a good margin
over Miss Leighton the runner-up.
Miss Kathleen Eve finished third.
A great deal of interest was
displayed in the ladder series this
year, much of which was probably
due to the unusually fine dry summer we have experienced. Another
feature of the ladder games which
helped to make them popular, was
that it gave tiie entrants a chance
to have competitive singles matches
with other players who are about
equal to themselves in ability.
The results of the season's ladder
series, as compiled  by the Committee, are as follows:

Departments at Ottawa
Now Settled Down
To Business
Ottawa, October 4th; (Special to
the Herald.) With the emergency
session of Parliament ended and
Canada's delegation off to the
Imperial and Economic conference,
the departments of Government
are getting down to real business
for the first time in eight months.
When the House is in session the
regular routine of the departments
is disrupted. That happened from
February until June. Then came
another upsetting feature in the
election campaign and immediately
after it the change of Government
and hasty preparation for the session which has just terminated.
Conditions in the civil service,
of course, are not what they were
prior to formation of the Civil Service Commission. Then a change
of Government brought the menace
of dismissal before every appointee
of the outgoing administration.
Now only those found guilty of
marked partisanship have anything
to fear. There are, of course,
changes in the higher confidential
positions, but even here the number of post-election traufers are
extremely inconsequential.
While the major burden of
administration of unemployment
relief voted by parliament falls
upon the Labor and Public Works
Departments, almost every branch,
of tho Government is interested.
This work, together with the re
organization of the Pensions Department and reconstruction of the
Canadian National Railway directorate, formed the most immediate
tasks which Mr. Bennett left to
his colleagues when he sailed for

Ask For Standardization Of
Silver Price
The Vancouver Board of Trade
has cabled Premier R. B. Bennett
in London asking him to bring
before the Imperial Conference the
question of the advisability of standardizing the price of silver. The
suggestion that the silver situation
be taken up at the Imperial Conference emanated from the Smithers' Board of Trade and the proposal was approved at the recent
convention of the Associated Boards
of Trade of Central British Columbia.

One of the biggest game bags
ever to be taken out of the Canadian Rockies has fallen to the gun
of Angus Hodgson, of Montreal,
who has been hunting in the Kootenay Valley. It includes two deer,
two Rocky Mountain goats, one
moose, one elk, and one black bear.
At the end of his trip he spent six
days tracking a monster grizzly
and with one bighorn ram he
would have had the limit of every
animal possible to get which the
law allows him.
Comprising the largest one-day
movement of apples out of British
Columbia this season, the Canadian
Pacific Railway recently operated
four special freight trains over the
mountains, making a shipment of
113 carloads of Mcintosh Red.? to
the Prairie Provinces and as Jar
east as Kenora.
Riding moose across New Brunswick lakes and rivers Is beginning
to rate as the coming new craze,
says Major McGeehan, noted New
York sport and magazine writer,
who has been spending a Pall outing in the Miramichi and Cain's
River districts. Up to the present the moose ridden have been
cow moose but Rev. Thomas Travis,
of Montclair, N.J., appears to be the
first who has ridden a bull moose
which was done in the Key Hole of
Grand Lake, about 35 miles from
Fredericton. Now other sportsmen are taking up the pastime until it begins to look as though
sportsmen In New Brunswick will
be getting the habit of crossing
lakes and rivers on mooseback.

ALICE  ARM  AND  ANYOX  HERALD.  Saturday, October 11, 1930
The manager of a pioture theatre
tells this as a true story. Two
men stopped outside his cinema,
aud looked at the poster announcing, "All Quiet on the Western
Front." "Let's go in," said one.
"No," said the other. ''I'm fed up
with these Western pictures, all
cowboys, and bronco-riding."
Playing Tonight, Anyox
Local audiences will see tart
drama, rollicking comedy and gay
music successfully combined when
"Street Girl," Radio Pictures' enjoyable musical drama plays at the
Anyox theatre tonight. It is not
the first time Hollywood has tried
to unite the three on the talking
screen, but the first time this reviewer has seen it done in such an
intelligent and convincing manner.
''Street Girl" will appeal to almost any type of audience. It has
everything that goes to make up
the perfect entertainment. Betty
Compson capably plays the lead as
an appealing little violinist and entertainer in a New York East Side
cafe. She really plays the violin,
and does it most satisfactory.
One pf the high spots of the
show is the comedy furnished by
probably the best combination of
comics ever presented in a picture.
Jack Oakie, Ned Sparks and Joseph
Cawthorn, all familiar to musical
comedy and motion picture audien^
ces, got every laugh possible from

Kitsault-Eagle Co. Developing
Property Queen Charlotte
The Kitsault-Eagle Silver Mines
Ltrl. are at present successfully developing a mining property near
Skidegate, Q. C. I. carrying good
gold values.
Since commencing work in
March they have developed an
approximate tonnage of 10,000
tons of ore showing values between
$10 and $15 per ton.
High grade lenses encountered
have given values of $4.00 per
pouud in gold, and test shipments
of approximately six tons have
given returns varying from $100
to $350 iu gold per ton.
The Kitsault-Eagle Co. is among
the most aggressive mining companies in the province. They own
extensive mining properties in the
Alice Arm district, and which they
will further develop as soon as
market conditions warrant.
A man who had been waiting
patiently in the post-office could
not attract the attention of either
of the girls behind the counter.
"The evening cloak," exclaimed
one of the girls to her companion,
''was a redingote design in gorgeous brocade, with fox fur and
wide sleeves."
At this point the long suffering
customer broke in with: "I wonder
if you could provide me witli a
neat red stamp with a dinky
perforated hem, the tout ensemble
delicately treated on the reverse
with gum arabic? Something
about two cents."
B. C. Mining Making
Steady Progress
Referring- to conditions in' the
mining' industry of British Columbia, Hon. W. A. McKenzie, minister of mines, says:
"While mining cannot be said to
be booming because of the relatively low prices of metals, the tone of
the industry is healthy and there is
an underlying atmosphere among
operators and others of unshakable
faith and confidence in the future.
Some of the small mines have been
compelled to close down temporarily but as the outside markets
recover price levels that will make
production profitable, they will
be again on the shipping list.
Meanwhile such enterprises as
the Britannia Mining-, Smelting &i
Power Co., the Premier Gold Min
ing Co., the Granby Consolidated
Mining and Smelting Co. and the
Consolidated Mining & Smelting
Co. give practical evidence of their
faith by carrying on large organizations and by continuing the development of and the search for
new properties."

pretty teacher: ''Do you teach

children, shut your eyes and sit

chirping sort of noise and followed
with: "now children what did
I do?"
