[Mr. Geo. Clothier and Party
Make Trip
Another step towards the development of the mineral resources of
ljiorthern B. C. and one that will
lirobably have far reaching effect
J n the future, has been made, Mr.
. Clothier, resident mining
iMiginaer far- this district, left
[•Stewart on July 5th, accompanied
j;>y Vince Lade, Homer Ficklin,
Cyril Jackson, and —...
(Marvin, and arrived at Alice Arm,
lJuly 13th. The object of the trip
(being to cruise out a prospector's
■trail between the; headwaters of
lithe Bear River at Stewart and the
(head of Kitsault River, at Alice
(Arm, so that it will be possible for
(prospectors to explore the rich
[mineral belt lying between these
[two points.
The party made the trip via the
iBear river glacier, and steered a
[course four miles north of Meziadan
(lake. AiMnspection was made of
[the Del Norte mining property,
•which is situate seven miles west
lof Meziadan lake, and a visit was
[also made to the range of moun-
Itains north of Beaver Creek, whioh
|is the creek flowing east from the
fear river divide.. ,.    .
Mr. Clothier thinks a trail can
[be started nbout five miles down
[from the Bear river summit to run
[north along the mineral belt east
[of the granite range. A small
[appropriation has beett: made by
[the Mines Department for some of
[ this work to be done this year.
I The work will be done by prospect-
lors, who will be paid a certain
I price per mile, and it is hoped that
I from 10 to 15 miles will be slashed
| out this year.
Mr. Clothier estimates that the
[cost  of slashing  and   blazing a.
prospectors    trail   from   Beaver
Creek, at the Bear River Pass, to
I Clearwater Creek at the head' of
I Kitsault River, at not more than
$100 per mile and probably less
I than that sum.   The approximate

Anyox Visitors at
Alice Arm
The annual pilgrimage of Aiiyox
visitors to Alice Arm, is now in
full swing, and it is estimated that
over 100 visitors are now at the
Arm-enjoying the fresh air, fishing
and scenery and having a good
time generally. Theyv are spread
throughout the town and nearly
all available buildings are now
rented, but vacancies occur from to
time as some of the visitors depart
from the scene of pleasure to renew
their labors at the- big industrial
plant down the inlet.
The number of visitors have been
increased this year, due to the renting of a number of rooms at the
Alice Arm Hotel by the Anyox
Community League, for those who
were too late in renting cabins.
Seven families are at_present taking advantage of the opportunity
to visit Alice Arm under the Community League system, and all are
enthusiastic over the accommodation that has been made for
them. The "women and smaller
children, sleep in the rooms, and the
older children in one big room.
They have the use of the big
kitchen range, with hot and cold
water, dining room, sitting room,
Anyox Band Gives
Open Air Concert
The open air ooncert given on
Friday evening July 4th, was a
success in every way. The playing
showed that the musicians were-
experienced, and the public were
highly satisfied with the concert as
a pleasurable entertainment.
Bandmaster Varnes and all members of the band are deserving of
praise for the success attained
with such a short period of preparation. It is hoped that more of
these concerts. will be given this
summer and that the band will
grow. There is room for several
more instruments in the band, and
anyone desiring to become a member is advised to see the bandmaster.

Alice Arm Ore Exhibit
lor London
. During the visit of F. C. Wade,
agent-general for B. C, he strongly
advooated a oolleotipn of ore from
mining properties in this district
for display at the British Columbia
House in London. He said that
Stewart had already promised to
sejid a shipment of ore, and he
hoped Alice Arm would do the
same, so that the ore from both
camps oan be displayed in the
windows at the same time or
immediately following each other.
About 20 pounds of ore from eaoh
property would be required and a
description of the property attached. These ores would be shipped
to London free of charge and would
be on exhibition at the headquarters of the agent-general at all
times. This matter will probably
be taken up at the next meeting of
the Citizens' Association to be held
next week. Until final arrangements are made samples oau be
left at the Herald office.

Development Work
of the Granby Co.
Development work done last
year by the Granby Co. at the
Hidden Creek mine, amounted to
2,775 feet of tunnel, and at the
Rambler 910 feet were driven.
Diamond drilling totaled 11,653
feet, which was distributed as
follows: Hidden Creek Mine 8,469,
feet, Bonanza 1,716 feet, Rambler
416 feet, Swamp Point'1052 feet!
The reserves of high grade ore
at the Hidden Creek Mine; - on
December 31st, 1921 stood at
10,761,527 tons of 2.24% Cu.,
showing a decrease of 224,893 tons,
from the reserve figure of December, 31st, 1920. In addition to the
new high grade ore drilled in
during the year, consisting entirely
of extensions laterally and in depth
of known bodies, a new body of
massive sulphide running about
0.5% Cu., very high in iron and
sulphur and correspondingly low
in insoluble, was indicated. This
body while of no present commercial value, may become valuable at
some later date, through the utili-
lization of its sulphur and iron
content as well as its copper.

Mrs. W. S. O'Neill was hostess
to a delightful party on Wednesday evening, July 12th, in honor of

distance would be 35 miles. All
the rivers are fordable for horses
except at very high water, and it
would be possible for pack horses
to go right through from one town
to the other. ' In making the trail
no expensive work will be encountered, aud there will be no difficulty
in connecting up these two mining
towns of the north.
Prom observations made by Mr.
Clothier oh the trip through, from
the formations cut by the creeks,
there is a wide belt of schists
laying above or west of the slates;
and between the slates and greenstone that is well worth prospecting-
No trail was blazed by the party
on the way over. This work will
be done later when the exact
location of the trail has been
decided on. It was thought that
any blazing done now would be
confusing to prospectors \vhen> the
regular trail was blazed and brushed out.
The party kept the high ground
most of the time on the way over,
to avoid the heavy brush, but even
then it was found necessary to do
considerable slashing in order to
get through. All members of the
party were old-timers in the north
and well able to make the strenuous trip, and as far as is known
are the first men* to make the
journey overland from Stewart to
Alice Arm. They arrived in the
pink of condition and were busy
renewing acquaintances, especially
Vince Lade, who resided here
previous to his going overseas in
1915.
The party struck the Alioe Arm
trail system on the Toric property,
opposite the Dolly Varden mine,

Mr. Clothier hopes that in the
near future all the mineral belts of
the north will be connected up

will be possible for the prospector
to journey from the Kitsumkaluni
Lake through to Alice Arm and
from Alice Arm to Stewart. He
also hopes that trails will be made
into the Stikine Country, which is
known to be rich in mineral
wealth.
All these trails will be made by
the Mines Department to enable'
prospectors to gain access to., the
big undeveloped mineral areas of
the north and is the 'first step
toward a big expansion of the mining industry in this part of the

Premier Pays another
Big Dividend
Mining Truth. Spokane, Wash.,
understands according to eastern
sources of information, that the
Premier Gold Mining Co., owning
and operating the Premier mine,
has just paid its second dividend
this year, the amount being $800,
000, date of distribution being June
30. This in addition to the $500,
000 distribution inade last March,
brings the wonderful Portland
Canal property into the limelight
in no uncertain manner, with a
dividend allowing of $1,300,000
already this j^ear, and a total to
date of $1,700~060 taking into consideration the $400,000 paid in
December last. This is the most
sensational dividend record in.
years, not in the Pacific Northwest alone, but covering the whole
oountry as a whole.
Nor is this all. Information
rom the same sources is to the
effect that another $800i000 distribution will be made in September
next, bringing the total for three-
quarters of a year up to $2,500*000
or exactly half the Premier Gold
Mining Co's capitalization of 5,000.
00,0 shares of a par value of one
dollar. ■•
•The Premiers distribution places
the British Columbia area in the
lead in .the Northwest dividend list
so far for 1922, according to Min-
Truth's classification, the first time
this has occurred since such
records have been kept.
