Lantern Slide Entertainment at Alice Arm
On Friday evening of last week
the citizens of Alice Arm, and
especially the children, were given
a treat, when Rev. J. Herdman of
Anyox gave an entertainment with
his stereopticon. at the Alice
Arm   Hotel. The      pictures
shown were views of Sootland
showing both city and oountry
The programme was commenced
by Rev. J. .Herdman who saug.
"The Friar of Orders Grey." Mrs.
T.'W. Falconer and Rev. Herdman
rendered a duet, "A little bit of
Scotland," and Mr. T. Blaok sang
"Bonny Mary of Argyle." "Coming through the Rye" was saug by
the entire audience during the
showing of the pictures.
The pictures were ooncluded with
twelve slides of Annie Laurie, and
the well known song "Annie Laurie
was sang by Mr. T. Black. Rev.
Herdman explained the pictures as
they were shown, and they were of
special interest to a number of people who are acquainted with that
part of the world.
At the" conclusion of the programme Mr. T. W. Falconer ran
off some reels on his moving pioture
machine. It was in the nature of
an experiment and was very satis
The S. S. Amur is
Aground on Reef
The Coastwise Steamship and
Barge Co's. steamer, Amur went
ashore on a reef, at White Cliff
Island, 30 mileSiSouth of Prince
Rupert, in a howling gale at 4 p.m.
last Friday morning, on her way
north to Anyox from Vancouver
loaded with coal.
The" Amur is well known in
Anyox, where she has been engaged in carrying ore and copper south
and coal etc. on her trip north.
Latest reports from the scene of
the wreck state that the Amur is
hard and fast on a reef, but the
barge Griff, which she was towing,
and which went adrift, has been
towed to Inverness Cannery.
The S. S. Marmion was dispatched from Anyox to stand by the
Amur and render assistance, but
the arrival of the S. S. Tees has
relieved her.
As soon as the weather moderates the coal cargo on the Amur
will be taken off. and when lightened it is believed that no difficulty
will be experienced in refloating
All the crew are still aboard.
The vessel has steam up and is
operating her own pumps.
Hockey Teams  Formed  at
At the general meeting of the
Stewart Winter Sports Club last
evening considerable business connected with the rink was dealt with
but the big event of the evening
was the decision of the club to go
in more for fostering skating and
assist the formation of a Stewart
hockey team for which 24 sticks,
gloves, proteotors etc have been received and more ordered. It is
hoped that the weather will harden
up, so as to afford better ice on
which the teams can practice, prior
to a possible game against Alice
Arm at a later date.—Portland

E. MOSS, Editor and Publisher.
In this issue of the  Herald" we
publish an account of the activities
of the now world famous Premier
mine, and after reading it one is
apt to wonder how many more
Premier mines this district contains.
The truth is being gradually forced
home, even to the most pessimistic,
that this northern district holds out
wonderful opportunities to the bold
adventurer.       For    years    the
Premier was bonded and thrown
up by mining companies, and turned down cold by others, and property   owners   in   the   immediate
neighbourhood could not   get   a
nickel for development work, and
the general opinion was that what
ore there was in sight did  not go
down.    The knockers ruled supreme.   Such were conditions at
the head of the Portland Canal a
few short years ago, and these
conditions   seem,   to    a    certain
extent, to prevail at Alice Arm at
the present time.   Since the Dolly
Varden mine closed down it seems
to be the general impression that
all ore bodies in the district evaporated.    The Premier   and   the
Dolly Varden are similar properties.    Both have produced very
rich ore, and had the Dolly Varden
been fortunate enough to possess
I as   efficient   management   as the
Premier, and the absence of law
suits there is no doubt that the
property would be a big producer
I today.   The "wise one's" ridiculed
I the idea of large ore bodies being
j located on the Premier, even after
I high grade ore was found, but
I latest reports tell a different story.
1 The same has been said of the
I Dolly Varden, but who   knows
I what ore is in the Dolly Varden
I hill until efficient development work
I has been done.   No one dreamed
I from the low grade surface show-
lings    when    work    was    first
I commenced, that such enormous
I wealth was hidden a few   feet
Ibelow, and no   one knows   the
lextent of the wealth still hidden in
Pulp and Paper Mill For
Prince George District
A paper and pulp mill for
Northern B. C. is now assured,
according to the statements of Hon.
T. D. Pattullo, who has returned
from Montreal, where he has been
in negotiation with Messrs. Frank
Jones and Angus McLean, representing Eastern capitalists and
holders of timber leases in the
Prince George district.
Previous negotiations for a paper
and pulp mill for Prince George
came to naught, owing to the refusal of Hon. Mr. Pattullo. Minister
of lands and forests, to grant a fixed
royality. The minister took the
view that, with the growing world
scarcity of timber and pulp, it was
unfair to posterity to grant a fixed
royalty. In the recent negotiations
between the Minister of Lands and
the eastern capitalists, certain concessions were granted to the applicants, who have withdrawn their
demand for a fixed royality. Commencement of construction will be
made in the present year.
Green—Did you see Jones when
he came in from fishing?
Brown—Yes, I was pretty close
to that boat.
Were there any fish lying about
No, but he was lying about the
the famous hill. Also, no one
dares to predict the extent of the
wealth that will eventually be
derived from the Kitsault valley.
Since the closing of the Dolly
Varden it has been difficult to get
sufficient capital interested in the
district to do a large amount of
development work, and the camp
is marking time waiting for operations to re-commence at the Dolly
Varden. It is, perhaps, a fatal
mistake to wait until the property
is again in operation before earnest
ly endeavoring to attract capital
Concerted action on the part of
property owners of the Kitsault
valley may help solve the problem.
There is lots of money ready for
investment in mining properties in
British Columbia, but it will have
to be sought, and when capital has
been attracted and ready to invest,
conditions should be made as easy
as possible. We have got to start
at the bottom again and work up,
and in order to get a start it may
be necessary for someone to make
a sacrifice.
Spanish Copper Mine is Big
The Rio Tinto mine of Spain is
one of the greatest copper mines of
the world, and is also one of the
oldest. It has been worked almost
since the dawn of civilization, being
worked both by the Phoenicians
and Romans. The mine contains
immense ore bodies, some being
over 800 feet wide. At the present
time 23,000 tons of copper is produced annually.
Light Snowfall in Manitoba
For the first time in the history
of Manitoba, old' timers declare not
one snow-plough or flanger has
traversed the lines of the Canadian
National Railways in that province
for the first two winter months.
The light snowfall so far this season
means a saving of many thousands
of dollars for the National System.
Record Gold Production
From Northern Ontario
North Bay. Feb. 6th,—The gold
mines of Northern Ontario broke
all previous records in the month
of January when they produced
approximately $2,100,000 based on
preliminary reports obtained from
the mines, according to a special
despatch to the North Bay Nugget
from Timmins Ont.

production to the end of 1922 show
An Aggregate Value of $769,418,462
The substantial progress of the Mining Industry in 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; for five years, 1896-1900, $57,607,967; forfiveyears, 1901-1905, $96,507,968; forfiveyears, 1906

Production During last ten years. $339,280,940
Lode-mining has only been in progress for about 33 years, and not 20 per cent of the Province has been
even prospected; 300,000 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. »

Premier Mine
is World's
Dividend cheques for the last
quarter of 1922 have been received
by the shareholders of the Premier Mine. This payment of $400,-
000, or 8c. per share for that quarter brings the total disbursements
in the form of dividends in two
years up to |5,000,000 or 100 per
cent, on the capital of the Company.
The first Premier dividend ($400,
000) was paid on December 31st.
1921, and every quarter thereafter
a dividend has been distributed.
The largest payment being made
pii June 30th. 1922 when oheques
aggregating $800,000 were received
by the shareholders.
No other mine in any part of the
world has made the record of this
British Columbia property, which
is even more remarkable when the
heavy cost of development is taken
into consideration, the whole of
whioh has been paid out of profits
The ore shipped has paid for the
longest tramway in the world, driving tunnels, the building of bunkers
concentrator, hospital, mine buildings, hydro-electric development
and all operating costs.
Three ore bodies have been developed, two parallelling one another
at a distance of fifty to one hundred
feet apart with the other intersecting at an angle of fifty degrees.
Other ore bodies as yet undeveloped
occur both north and south of this
and also on the Northern * Light
group of claims which the company
has under bond and on which it
has made two payments on its
Preparations are now being made
for extending the compauy's operations on Cascade Creek which will
more than double the ore output.
Extensive additions to its hydro
power development, are being made
and a new power house is being
erected. As soon as weather conditions permit work will commence
on the building of a large concentrator at the portal of the traffic
tunnel being driven from the level
of the old Bunting tunnel near Cascade Creek along the course of the
northwest vein, which will develop
large bodies of ore located by diamond drilling.
Results from diamond drilling
operations during 1923 have given
great satisfaction . to the owners
and have proven the mine much
better than expected from the developments a year ago. The ore
bodies have widened somewhat to
the present bottom levels and at
the present rate of mining the life
of the mine has been extended
for twenty five years, although the
drilling operations have not as yet
discovered the boundaries of the ore.
New ore shoots have been picked
up from No. 3 level; one is from
fifteen to forty feet wide and has
been traced for nine hundred feet in
length, carrying ore values from
fifty to three hundred dollars per
ton. It is estimated that this one
shoot will yield at least $6,000,000.

Hardening Copper
A blacksmith in New Brunswick
has discovered a system of hardening copper to the hardness of steel.
His discovery is investigated by experts and if it proves to be practicable, as is generally believed it will
an immense new market will be
created for copper. One of the
important uses to which hardened
copper will be put is the construction of marine boilers and storage
tanks in pulp mills. If the discos
ery can be put into use it will be
one of the foremost discoveries of
the age.—Omineca Herald.
Considering the manner in which
some towns and cities are clamoring
for roads and sometimes getting
them. It wouldn't be a bad idea
perhaps, to agitate for an auto road
from Anyox to Alice Arm, then
through to the Naas Valley, and
Hazelton, so that we can connect
up with the proposed Yukon—Ha'
zelton road. Then the tourists
would come here by the million for
we would be the seaport of Dawson.
Yes that's the kind of stuff they
pull off all over the province. That
is what is called boosting.
Great men are they who see that
mental force is stronger than
material force; that thought rules
the world.
