Young Men of Union
Church Entertain Ladies
At Social
A very sncoessful party was
given at the Union Churoh by the
single men of the town, on Saturday Ootober 31st to the ladies, and
all present agreed it was an enjoyable evening well spent and
would long be remembered.
Mr. McAllister acted as chairman and speaking on behalf of the
single men, informed those present
that the object of this social evening was put on by the young men
of the oamp as an attempt to show
the ladies some degree of appreciation for the pleasant evenings
they had spent at similar parties,
at which they had been invited.
The chairman also pointed out the
great amount of good work which
Mr. Clarke had accomplished dur-
the short time he had been here.
Affairs of this kind, he said, cannot help but be the means of accomplishing good, as it enables our
single folks to meet together and
break away from monotonous
The first item on the programme
of entertainment was a quartette,
consisting of Messrs. W. R. Murdoch, Alex Crear, S. Colelough,
and I. Leake, with J. Pierce at the
piano. Songs sungby thequartettte

thankful it was not necessary to

Development Work on Tiger Property
Determines Location of Rich Ore Veins
Joins the Toric and Ore carries Native and Ruby Silver
One of the outstanding successes
of the year in regard to the development of mining properties in the
Upper Kitsault country is the
Tiger, which has been developed
by its owner, Ed. Piokett. The
Tiger consists of three claims and
is situated in the midst of the Kitsault mineral belt, being located on
the east bank of the Kitsault river.
It is bordered on the south by the
Toric, and on the north by the
Three Musketeers, which property
joins the Wolf.
Development work this year has
consisted mainly of determining
the existence .and location underground of faulted sections, which
had not been proven by previous
exploratory work.
These ore bodies were proven by
driving crosscuts from the main
'tunnel. In No. 2 crosscut, after
drifting only two feet, an ore vein
seven feet wide was broken into.
This vein is a high grade silver
ore, and carries native and ruby
silver in. abundance.
No. 3 ore body was cut through
at tlW end of tire fault-by the main
tunnel, but high values at this
point was not obtained. Mr. Pickett drifted on this vein for a distance of ten feet, when high grade
ore was encountered showing
heavy native silver and ruby silver.
The surface showings of this ore
body shows it to be from 10 to 15
feet wide.
. When operations were suspended for the summer last week, work
was being done on the No. 1 ore
body. It was this section that
five feet of ore was encountered
previously by diamond drill, and
which gave assay returns of 213
ozs. silver per ton. This drift will
be continued next summer, and the
ore located.
Similar to other properties in
the Alice Arm district, the ore
body on the Tiger is badly faultedi
and it was to determine the location of the fault sections underground, (No. 1, 2, and 3) that the
above work was done. The ore
ledge has been traced on the surface for a distance of 500 feet, and
the fault sections ire from 50 to 75
feet in length. This ledge is almost certain to extend an additional 300 feet, as there is no change
in rook formation for that distance.
The change takes place where the
Tiger audesite and Toric breccia
connect, which is at a point near
the boundary, 'f-fte andesite formation of the Tiger extends to the
Wolf, crossing the Three Musketeers. All work done on the ore
ledge has been on the north end.
In addition to the above mentioned underground work, surface
prospecting was rewarded by locat
ing a new ledge of ore, 15 feet
wide, paralleling the Tiger ledge,
and located 500 feet east. The formation of this ledge is indentical
to the Tiger ledge, and prospecting
shows it to be another badly faulted vein, and very highly minerliz-
ed. Returns have not yet been received from samples sent out for
At the present time Mr. Pickett
is contemplating letting a contract
for a tunnel on the fartherest south
exposure of the Tiger ore ledge.
This tunnel, which will be 100
feet long, will give a depth on the
ore of approximately 100 feet.
Development work this year on
the Tiger proves conclusively that
the property possesses ore bodies
of considerable magnitude, and also that the ore is of a high grade
Joining as it does, the Toric, whose
development met with such phen-
ominal success, should oonvince the
most doubtful that the Alice Arm
district is one that will stand
Enough development work has
been done during the past few
years by men full of practical experience to prove that this district
possesses ore bodies that equal or
surpass any camp in British
Columbia in view of these facts,
and it is reasonable to expect that
the Kitsault valley will be a hive
of industry in the very near future.

Nearly 200 Attend Big
Anyox Halloween
A very delightful evening was
spent at the Halloween dance at
the Recreation Hall on Monday.
The Hall presented a very pleasing appearance being decorated
with the usual Halloween symbols.
There were about 90 couples dancing on the floor at 10.45. p.m.
The popular orchestra consisting
of Messrs. J. Austin, S. Armstrong,
S. Steele, E. Waterman and H,
McDougal certainly are to be complimented for the music they
rendered, and the ladies of the
Auxiliary wish to take this opportunity in expressing their appreciation. Great credit is due to the
officers and ladies of the Anyox
Ladies' Hospital Auxiliary for the
splendid success of the evening.
The entertaining of such a large
gathering entails a big expenditure
of labor, and special praise is due
to the president, Mrs. W. F. Eve,
on whose shoulders fell the larger
part of the burden.

Another Dominion election
passed into history last week, and
at the present time it seems as
though the Liberal party under the
leadership of Mackenzie King, are
still in the saddle. In order to
maintain office, however, they
must receive the undivided support
of the progressive, labor, and independent members. How long
they will be able to rely on this
support is a question no one can
answer, and it is possible that another election will be held at any
time after another year has expired.
At the present time, no one desires
another election. An election entails a large expenditure of money,
not only by the government, but
also by the candidates and their
supporters, and it also requires a
large amount of work. In view of
these facts it is almost certain that
at least a year will elapse before
the country is put to the expense of
another election, and it is possible
that even with the small majority
at the disposal of the Premier, he
will, by using good diplomacy be
able to maintain office for another
four years.
One of the outstanding events
in the election fight of the Skeena
riding was the absence of personal
mud slinging by the three candidates. Each candidate threw
every ounce of energy into the
struggle, and rallied to his support
prominent speakers from the south.
Each one stated his case fairly and
squarely, and although the average
elector was somewhat puzzled by
the manner in which the three
parties handled their figures, to
show that their opponents were
responsible for our enormous debt,
the majority decided to send Fred
Stork back for another term. So
Fred will again interest himself
on our behalf at Ottawa, and that's
that. Now that the election is
over, let's forget it, and join together for the welfare of the district in which we live. Some one
must lose during these elections,
and the losers have the consolation that they will again have a
chance to place their man at the
top of the poll when the next
election comes around.
Navigation in the Arctic is closed for another winter, with icebergs and impending storms cutting off Nome from sea communication with the outside world.

The Wild Ass from Persia
Not long ago a wild ass from
Persia was brought to the United
States to be shipped to a certain
zoological garden. But just before the vessel reached port he took
a notion to kick. He wore himself out trying to kick the vessel to
peices, but all he succeeded in doing was to make a few dents on
the vessel and killing himself. Instead of burying the ass at sea, the
captain dumped him into the furnace. So he became fuel to help
the vessel on its way.
Every community has a human
ass that kicks at everything. He
feels called to criticize and find
fault with every effort made for
advancement or improvement.
Such a kicker has his mission. He
does some good in the world, but
it is after he is dead.
The knocker builds up nothing.
He is a parasite upon the community, feeding upon the gifts and interests of others. But there is a
cheerful thought connected with
the kicker. He soon kicks himself clear of the community. Give
him a little time and he will kick
himself to death like the wild ass
from Persia.
There is no person less respected
in the community than the kicker.
He has but few real friends, and
they are ashamed to have his name
mentioned in connection with
The kicker stands iu the way of
all progress. He is met with in
society, in business, in politics,
and in religion. So each community should remember that the
kicker will always be there. But
be not discouraged—the kicker
helps you after all. For he magnifies your faults so you can see them
for yourself.
New Big Smelter Stack
For Trail
Work was started last week on
another big stack for tjie Consolidated Mining & Smelting Co. at
Trail. It will be used in place of
the two small stacks now serving
the lead and copper plants and
will, it is thought, prove more
efficient and result in a greater
saving than that now effected.
Excavation work for the foundation of this big stack is in progress
and will be rushed through before
cold weather interferes with the
proper mixing of concrete. It is
proposed to complete the foundation this fall so it will be settled
and ready to receive the weight of
the immense body of cement and
brick which will go into the construction of the body of the stack
in the spring.
This stack will be approximately
the same height as the one blown
in recently, but will be 24 feet in
diameter at the top and 40 feet at
the base, which gives it a three-
foot greater diameter at top and
eight feet greater diameter at the
bottom than the big stack just
completed. The Rust Construction Company, of Pittsburg, has
the contract,
We acknowledge taking this

Indian Mine at Stewart
to Ship Ore
Work was resumed on the Indian mine last Wednesday, after a
shut-down of several months, and
it is the intention to continue
through the winter, stopeing ore
for shipment to Swansea, Wales,
and carrying development ahead.
Returns have been received from
the trial shipment of 36 tons made
to Swansea, and are satisfactory,
ore running $116 per ton, with
values principally in lead and zinc.
The first work will consist of
sacking 300 tons of this character
of ore now on the dump, after
which the ore shoot from which
this came will be stoped out. This
shoot is conservatively estimated
to contain 2000 tons of shipping
grade. Manager W. S. Orr expects to ship at the rate of 150
tons of ore per month.
Announcement of the re-opening of the Indian mine is received
here with the utmost satisfaction,
as the property has always been
locally considered as a big mine
in the making, though with complex geological conditions that had
to be overcome.

Liberals Still Control
Political Situation
Copper Mountain Notes
A meeting was held during the
week, at which an association was
formed for the purpose of handling
all social and athletic activities on
the hill. Committee was appointed to draw up constitution, and to
arrange for a dance which we hope
to hold on the 6th. of next month,
for the purpose of giving the new
association a financial start, more
particularly to get the hockey
rink in shape for the snappy team
which we hope to run this winter.
Now that we are well on our
way to having a hockey team, we
would like to hear something of
what Princeton and Allenby, also
any other nearby cities are going
to do to make some good games
this winter.
Nineteen families on the hill and
more coming all the time. Among
the more recent arrivals are Peter
McLaughlin, Hans Christensen,
A. A. Smith, Dan Juckich and
Helmer Staffanson, all of whom
have moved their families in.—
Princeton Star.
The latest election advices state
that the Liberals are still in control of the situation, aud is expected that with the aid of the other
groups, they will still be able to
carry on. No definite statement
regarding future plans of the
government have been made by
Premier Mackenzie King, but
Liberal leaders do not expect that
the Premier will resign, and so
force another election on the country.
Most Northerly Police Post
The world's most northorly police
post, also the most remote of any
human habitant, is to be constructed next year'for the mount
ed police at the far end of Elles-
mere Island. Building materials
and two years supplies have been
cached within easy freighting distance of the point. Three men
will be detailed for patrol duty on
the indescribably lonely shores of
Rice Straits.
Badmington Will be Played
at Anyox
A badminton club is being formed and orders have already been
sent for raquets. The Gymnasium
will be used for a court, certain
hours being set aside mornings
and afternoons for the players of
the popular game.

Matthews 6th. Chapter. 19-24,
Verse 19. Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where
moth and rust doth corrupt, and
where thieves break through and
steal. 20: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where
neither math nor rust doth corrupt,
and where thieves do not break
through nor steal. 21: For where
your treasure is, there will your
heart be also. 22: The light of
the body is in the eye; if therefore
thine eye be single, thy whole body
shall be full of light. 23: But if
thine eye be evil, thy whole body
shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be
darkness, how great is that darkness! 24: No man can serve two
masters; for either he will hate the
one and love the other: or else he
will hold to the one, and despise
the other. Ye cannot serve God
and mammon.—Jesus.
