Business  as Usual In
Spite of Mail Service
The direct mail service between
Alice Arm and Anyox will be discontinued after Tuesday next January 31st. Arrangements have been
made, however, whereby those
wishing to forward newspaper copy
to the Herald or send copy for job
printing will be given the same
efficient service as heretofore. Instead of mailing your letters in the
Post Office, leave them at the Elks'
Hall. They will be called for on
Thursday afternoon or evening and
brought direct to Alice Arm. Those
requiring their printing in a hurry
will receive it on the Camosun on
Monday morning, and if it is not
wanted at once it will arrive in
Anyox the following Thursday. The
Herald will arrive in Anyox on
Monday morning instead of Saturday morning. Wire your small
printing orders at our expense if
urgent delivery is required.
We expect to be able to make
the announcement in our next issue
A*hat a direct mail service between
Anyox and Alice Arm has again
been established, but during the
coming week letters for the Herald
should be left at the Elks' Hall.

Chicago Capital Interested in
North Star Bond
Chicago interests have acquired
a 75 per cent, interest in the bond
on the North Star. A few months
ago the North Star was bonded to
J. Strombeek and Gus Pearson,
for the. sum of $50,000, payments
to be spread over three years. It
is expeoted that the Chicago inter
ests will shortly acquire full control.

One hundred and forty blue fox

Latest word from the Silver Cord
property indicates that something
big in the way of ore development
is taking place this winter.
At the present time an ore body
30 feet wide is being ■ developed
Fourteen feet of the ore is high
grade, carrying values in silver,
lead, zinc and gold, and several
spectacular samples were brought
to town on Thursday. The ore is
being developed at a depth of 300
feet. It is expected that it will
run 300 ozs. of silver per ton in addition to lead, zinc and gold values,
samples from the same ore body on
the upper level giving these returns.
The tunnel now being driven was
commenced last fall, in order to
gain additional depth. It was driv
en on an ore vein from 4 to 5 feet
wide, which has now widened to 30
feet, and the richness of the ore
increases as depth is obtained.
Three hundred feet of tunnelling
has been done, ana? crosscuts driven
every 50 feet on the ore body total
an additional 300 feet.
Surface showings show the ore
to be 100 feet wide at one point,
and it is expected that an additional
200 feet of tunnel will be necessary
in order to tap this at depth.
Samples taken from the ore body
a short time ago gave average
values of $55.00 per ton, but the
ore now being developed is much
In the upper tunnel, known as
the No. 1, the same ore body had a
width of 8 feet. The widening to
30 feet in the lower tunnel presents
vast possibilities and is a source of
great satisfaction to the operators.
The developing of an ore body of
this magnitude at a depth of 300
feet, indicates that the Silver Cord
will become a revenue producer in
a short time. It is probable that
when a concentrating mill is installed that it will not be a pony 50-ton
mill, but one large enough to put
through a tonnage that will realize
large profits.
The Silver Cord is being developed by the British Colonial Securities
Ltd. of Vancouver, with A. McGuire
in charge of operations. They are
a company that believe in getting
value for their money in developing
a mine, and they deserve the success
now being attained.
Plans Maturing for Big
Masquerade Dance
Plans for the P. T. A. Masquerade on February 13th were further
arranged at a well attended Committee Meeting on Monday.
Among the many willing workers
who are assisting Miss Hestyr
Richards to put over the affair
are Mrs Kirk and Mrs. P. McDougall, who have charge of
refreshments; Mr. B. Thorsteinson
will direct, the decoration; Mrs.
Cutler and Mrs. Patrick will assist
in the choice of prizes, while Mrs.
M. L. Campbell will mobilize the
ticket sellers.
The Arcadians five-piece orohestra has been engaged to play from
nine to two. A more complete
statement of an especially attractive programme will appear later.
North Star Tunnel Hits
Ore Body of Extensive
The tunnel on the North Star is
now being driven in ore. This
news was received from reliable
sources yesterday evening.
The tunnel has been driven . a
distance of 75 feet, the last 40 feet
being in ore, which is in the bottom
of the tunnel. The last two shifts
showed that values are considerably
increasing, the ore being solid, and
the outlook is very promising.
The values are silver in the form
of argentite with some ruby silver,
the former, however, predominating. Crosscuts will be driven later
to prove the extent of the ore body,
which from present indications is of
considerable size.

Coke Plant Team Show
Great Form
A good crowd on Wednesday
night saw Davie Wilson's Intermediates run away with the Concentrator's newest recruits. . Tom
Cloke and Dresser for the Rinkys
eluded the opposing guards to chalk
up twenty-five of their teams
twenty-nine points. Meanwhile
the Concentrator gleaned two
baskets and a couple of points on
free throws resulting from overconfident roughness on the part of
the victors.
The outcome of the senior game
was not so happy for the red-shirts.
As an answer to criticism on the
use of substitutes, Coke Plant
fielded their regular line-up and
quickly ran up fourteen points
before the Mechanics registered,
Beaulieu netting a couple to make
the half time score 16-4.
In the second half, however,
while the Plant's centre was resting, Mechanics began to justify
their position as league leaders by
creeping to within three baskets of
the opposition, Lazorek sharing the
lime-light with Beaulieu. But
with the return of Hill to the lineup, Coke Plant forced the pace
again, Asimus starring to put bis
team a long way in front at the

The surest way to kill a town
is to stop the mail service. Commencing February I st. Alice Arm
will receive one mail a week from
outside points and the direct mail
service between Alice Arm and
Anyox will be discontinued until
further notice, unless other arrangements are made. If arrangements
are not made for more than one
mail a week from outside points
and no direct mail service to and
from Anyox, the extinction of the
camp is in sight. Business can
not be carried on under such conditions, however much one may
try. The pioneers of such isolated
towns as Alice Arm have much to
contend with. They are denied
many conveniences enjoyed by
larger centres, but one that can
not be denied is a mail service.
Cut it off and the town is wiped
off the map. We hope for the
sake of everyone interested in the
camp, whether they are spending
their wealth and time in the city
this winter, or staying at home,
trying to carry things along, that
arrangements will be made for a
better mail service than that which
now faces us.
Outline of Future Operations at The Flin
Flon Mine
The Flin Flon situation continues to be of interest, and a statement issued by the Hon. John
Braoken, Premier of Manitoba.
indicates an early settlement ofthe
railway problem which is understood to be the one uncertain
factor holding up negotiations.
Mr. Bracken states that the Manitoba government has reached a
decision by which it is expected
that an agreement with the Dominion government and the Canadian
National Railway will be completed, insuring the construction of a
railway line 85 miles long, to serve
the section of the province noith
of the Pas. Under this arrangement the government, instead of
guaranteeing the bonds of a railway, will make payments not
exceeding $100,000 a year for a
period of five years, if there
should be any operating deficits
during the development period
through which the territory must
pass.   The Whitney interests will
contribute $250,000 toward the
railway in order that arrangements
may be mado to complete the line
without delay. They will also undertake to build and operate a
plant at Flin Flon capable of
handling 3,000 tons of ore a day
and will develop a hydro-electric
power plant which will have an
ultimate capacity of 270,000 horsepower. It is estimated that total
expenditures, including the railway
will be about $18,000,000. The
value of the ore reserves of the
Flin Flon are placed at $200,000,-
000, and it is expected that the
Sheritt-Gordon will soon be able
to show $100,000,000 of reserves.
The Dominion Government was
not at first in favor ofthe proposal
of a guarantee of $100,000 a year
for five years to meet operating
deficits, but eventually decided to
accept it if offered. The matter
has now been laid before the Manitoba government and has received
the unanimous approval of the
House. The Mining Corporation,
which is the vendor, will retain a
15 per cent interest in the property
and will also receive cash or bonds
to cover the disbursements which
the company has already made.

; Smashing all of its own high
records of the past, the Alaska
Juneau Gold Mining Company in
1927 had the best year in its history, according to figures covering
the year's operations which were
made public today by by General
Superintendent L. H. Metzgar.
Its gold production for the year
was $2,380,000.
It mined, tramed and milled more
ore than any other year since it
began large scale operations. And
it acornplished this with the same
average daily labor roll as in 1926.
The daily average of men employed last year was 600, the same
figure given for 1926.
The tonnage trammed from the
mine during 1927 was 4,263,000
tons, as compared to 3,800,000 tons
in 1926, a gain of 463,000 tons.
It was 781,360 tons more than
were trammed out iu 1925.
Mining Engineers Are
Examining engineers came in for
a little criticism at the annual
meeting of the Kaslo Prospectors'
Association, held the last week of
the year. It was observed that the
engineers did not seem to have the
courage of tlieir convictions, for if
they had more new properties
would be opened up. It was pointed out that all the recent mining
successes in that district were old
mines, and very few new ones are
being developed. The opinion was
expressed that more field practice
and less book learning would go to
the greater advantage of all concerned.

Lode mining has only been in progress for about 25 years, and only about one-half of the Provinoe 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 dono
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

Over-Production Cuts
Lumber Prices
In British Columbia, the lumbering industries are still experiencing
difficulties due to over-production,
says a report issued by the Royal
Bank of Canada.
Canadian lumber prices are 49
per cent, higher than in 1913,
while in the United States lumber
prices average about 100 per cent,
above 1913. Between 1925 and
1927 there has been a large increase
in lumber exports, but the pi'iue
obtained for logs has continued to
fall. Fir averaged $16.33 in 1925,
$15 in 1926 and $14.66 in 1927;
cedar $17, $15.91 and $14.25;
heinlook $10.25, $11.07, and $9.73.
The increased use of lumber substitutes is increasing the competition in the industry and as yet.
there are no signs of basic improvement.

ALICE  ARM   AND   ANYOX   HERALD,   Saturday,    January   28 1928
Big Harvest is Making
Canada Prosperous
While pessimistic Easterners
perhaps can read nothing about
the west except the fact that the
prairie provinces have been experiencing below zero weather, the optimistic are throwing their hats in
the air at the announcement that
Canada's wheat crop this year is
the seoond highest iu the history
of the Dominion.
The final estimate of the Dominion Bureau of statistics, even
more encouraging than earlier
surveys places the total wheat
crop for this country at 444,282,-
000 bushels, a figure that has only
once been beaten.
The Western provinces, of course
have been chiefly responsible for
this huge total, which is large
enough to justify general rejoicing throughout the whole of
Anyox Community

Change of Alaskan
Victoria, Jauuary 25th.—Dissatisfaction that has been restless but
voiceless in northern British Columbia for many years in respect to the
Alaskan boundary line crystallized
into a definite movement for readjustment of the border last night
when H. F. Kergin, liberal member
for Atlin, filed a notice of motion
asking the Canadian government to
open negotiations with the United
States with the object of acquiring
the Alaska panhandle which is a
barrier detrimental to the northern
half of the province of B. C.
The motion asks the Legislature
to place itself on record as of the
opinion that the government should
open negotiations with Washington
having in view a readjustment of
the boundary. Such a readjustment would be in the interests of
both Canada and the United States,
the motion declares.
