Silver Crest Mines Ltd.
Attain Good Results
on Saddle
The Silver Crest Mines Ltd. who
are developing the Saddle property
on Hastings Ann, under the supervision of P, E. Petersen are attaining excellent results, and the property already has the earmarks of
becoming a producer of considerable proportions.
Tho No. 1 shaft has been sunk a
distance of 46 feet. The first 18
feet was in excellent ore. From
18 to 30 feet barren quartz was encountered, but from a depth of 30
feet the values improved and prospects are good for the encountering
of a good ore shoot.
Shaft No. 3. has been driven a
depth of 30 feet. It was commenced ou a vein of high grade ore 5
feet wide, and the ore values and
width have been persistent the
entire 30 feet. It is au important
discovery and already a nice tonnage of high grade ore has been
proven MP'
It is hoped that before the commencement of the snowfall, to
commence drifting from the bottom
of the shaft, and that when this is
done important ore discoveries will
be made.
Geological conditions at the
Saddle are very similar to the
Porter Idaho district on the Marmot River at Stewart. Every indication points to the same excellent results being attained. To
date the Saddle has not produced
such high silver values as the
Porter Idaho.
Anyox Tennis Tournament Going Strong
Fair progress has been made to
date in the Men's Open Cup
Tournament at the Anyox Courts.
Only three more matches are to be
played to complete the first round.

Sheen won from Real 60, 6-1.
Rudland won from Asimus 7-5,
6-1.
Armstrong won from Larson
6-2, 6-3.
G. Lee won from Moore 7-5, 6-0.
Townshend won from Captain
Cameron,
The following have yet to play
their first round matches:

Larson, 6-4, 6-4.
Mrs. MoTaggart won from Mrs.
Kirby 6-0,6-0.
Some very good Tennis has been
the order so far and next week

matches of the tournament, when
Mclntyre and Gordon meet, and
Townshend and Lee come together
in the third round.
News was received on
Thursday morning that Hon.
John Oliver, Premier of
British Columbia had passed
away on Wednesday at 11p.m.
The Premier died in harness,
working almost to the last.
Thus ends the life of one of
the most outstanding political
• figures in the history of the
province, and everyone
regrets the passing of the
leader of the government. A
man who gave his best for the
province and of whom we are
proud.

Eating of Salmon Eggs
Kills Indians
Five Indians died at Arrandale
cannery on the Naas River during
the week and six more seriously
ill. The cause of the epidemic was
the consumption of putrified salmon
eggs.

Tuesday for medical assitance, Dr.
MacDonald of the Naas River requesting the presence of Dr. Learoyd so that a consultation could be
held. As he was busy, Dr. Lang

Sad Drowning Fatality
at Alice Arm
Yesterday
A tragic death, which threw a
gloom over the whole town of Alice
Arm, occurred yesterday evening
(Friday) when little Jackie Anderson plunged to his death into the
bay from the top of the Dolly Varden ore bunkers.
Several children were playing
when deceased overbalanced and
dropped a distance of about 75
feet. Assistance was at hand
almost instantaneously, but he was
never seen to rise to the surface.
Dragging operations were conducted and after an immersion of about
45 minutes he was recovered.
Artificial respiration methods
were resorted to and continued
without intermission until the arrival of Dr. Learoyd from Anyox.
All his efforts, however, to restore
a spark of life were futile.
The little chap was only 4J<£
years of age. He was the youngest son of Mr. and Mrs. J. A.
Anderson, and leaves to mourn his
loss, beside his father and mother,
two brothers and three sisters.
The body was taken to Anyox at
2 a.m. on Saturday morning, and
arrangements were made for its
transportation to Prince Rupert on
the S. S. Prince George. The
body was accompanied south
by Mr. and Mrs. J. A. Anderson,
and brothers Gordon and Donald.
Interment will probably take
place on Sunday at Prince  Rupert.
The whole-hearted sympathy of
the whole community is extended to
the grief stricken parents and family
in their sad bereavement.

Hard work never killed anyone.
Monotony has crushed the souls of
thousands. Everybody has to put
up with a certain amount of sameness—but that does not say that
this is all we can do. After we
have done all the necessary and
monotonous things there is a whole
heap of time left for other things-
interesting things, thrilling things,
beautiful things.
It comes to this: You can either
allow yourself to be utterly swamped by your work, whatever it may
be, in the home, the shop or the
office, and so leave no time for
anything else, or you can pack all
that into a neat little compartment
of its own and then get on with
enjoying life.
No matter what your work is
you needn't succumb to the monotony. It isn't your everyday task
that prevents your doing other
things, it's your lack of energy,
enterprise—or just pure laziness.
The ability to make up ones
mind quickly and firmly on any
matter that is suddenly presented
to one is a rare gift. But a capacity to make up one's mind at all is
almost as rare.
Many of us who pride ourselves
on our thews and sinews, our excellent physique and condition allow
our mind to become so flabby that
it is quite incapable of responding
successfully to a sudden call on it.
We fall too easily into the habit of
allowing other people to do our
brainwork. Instead of disciplining
our mind to do its own thinking,
we take our views and opinions
from others and don't know what
we think of anything until we have
consulted some authority on the
subject. Our mind is possibly
just as good as theirs. Let us keep
it in good going order so that it
will respond readily to all the claims
we make on it.
Fog has been hampering the
whaling on Queen Charlotte
Islands to some extent according to
word received from Rose Harbor
and Naden Harbor, the two sta
tions operating there this year.
At Rose Harbor four whalers
have been busy and have taken so
far 79 whales in two months, while
at Naden Harbor which has been
open for only one month 32 of the
huge mammals have been taken.
That makes a total of 111 whales
for the season so far.

Reports couched in language
which seems extravagant continue
to come in from the Prosperity,
but when a man with the known
ability and conservation of A. B.
Trites says without reservation "It
is the greatest showing of surface
ore I have ever seen iu my life"
the statements of various visitors
to the property do not seem so
overdrawn.
Air. Trites, who was one of the
original syndioate of four who
opened up the famous Premier
mine, spent two days on the Prosperity this week in company with
his engineer, Major Angus Davis,
and both are enthusiastic over the
operation.
The main Prosperity vein from
which 30 tons of ore were mined
and shipped by the owners last fall
without doing any blaBting, has
been traced by open cuts clear
across the property, and in one
place is more than eight feet in
width of solid ore which assays
more than $400 per ton in silver,
lead and gold. A short crosscut
tunnel is now being driven to gain
about 50 feet of depth on the vein
and form a basis for winter operations. A stone house, 52 x 19 feet
inside dimensions, has been built
to house the crew.
The forests of Canada rank sec
ond only to agriculture in the value
of their products; they are the
sources of one quarter of the export
trade. They provide direct employment for over 97,000 workers
and furnish salaries and wages of
over $100,000,000 per year. *

First work in connection with
the reconditioning of the Ladysmith smelter, on Vancouver
Island, is expected to be undertaken
about the end of the present month
according to Major W. G. Swan,
consulting engineer, Vancouver,
who has been retained to supervise the work which will cost
$20,000. The Ladysmith smelter
was acquired some time ago by a
syndicate headed by Herbert
Carmichael and H. B. Thompson,
of Victoria. There is considerable
English capital behind the deal.
Several of the English members
of the directorate are coming out
to Vancouver and Ladysmith within the next couple of weeks and
following their inspection of the
plant, a meeting of the directorate
will be held either in Vancouver or
in Ladysmith and decision made
as to what improvements are to be
carried out in the reoonditioning of
the smelter plant.
Nothing pleases a man with a

Structural Materials and Miscellaneous Minerals, $50,175,407, making its mineral production to the end
of 1926, show an
Aggregate Value of $988,108,470
The substantial progress of the Mining industry of 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; forfive years, 1896-1900, $57,607,967; for five years, 1901-1905, $96,507,968; for five years-

Production Last Ten Years, $429,547,755
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 prospeoting.
The Mining Laws of this Province are more liberal arid 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 done
are described in some one of the Annual Reports of the Minister of Mines. Those considering
mining investments should refer to suoh reports. They are available without charge on application
to the Department of Mines, Victoria, B. C. Reports covering eaoh of the six mineral Survey
Districts are published separately, and are available on application. Reports of the Geological

$50.00 to be Spent on
"Soapy" Smith's Grave
It was 29 years ago Sunday July
10, 1898, that the remains of Jefferson Randolph ("Soapy") Smith
were confined to the earth from
whence they came, on a bleak side-
hill a mile above Skagway overlooking the valley through which
the Skagway River hurls its way
to the sea. Since that time many
thousands of curious people,
prompted by curiosity, have visited
"Soapy's grave, but it is not known
that any of the many curious ever
manifested a financial interest in it.
On tlie contrary they went, looked
and departed, many of them murm*
nriiig something about the pathway of the wicked being festooned
with thorns. And for 29 years the
souiiiKK of tho south wind in summer have broken the otherwise
stillness of that cemetery and frost
from the hoary mane of Old Bory
has lain heavily upon it in winter
when the north winds shriek and
tear ruthlessly over the resting
place of the dead and strike terror
in the hearts of the living—unless
the latter wear fleece-lined all-wool
undies.
All these years has the grave of
"Soapy" Smith withstood the rav
ages of time, negligence and the
tramping of the curious, but now
a philanthropist at St. Louis has
come forward and instructed that
$50.00 be spent in putting the
grave in repair, and to show that
he meant it he wired the amount.
Work will commence at once on
the completion of the Hudson Bay
Railway Hon. Charles Dunning
stated today. Ho said it should be
completed within .wo years. He
was in absolute agreement with
the extension of the line from Port
Nelson to Fort Churchill as recommended by Brig. Goneral R. W.
Paterson.
Grubstake For Prospectors
For some time the state railroads
in Alaska have been free to prospectors, and now it is proposed
that every bona fide prospector is
to be given a grub-stake of $150
each year by the state. They realize the more mineral that is discovered means much to everyone connected with the country.
At Fairbanks, the Alaska School
of Mines each year offers two
courses, lasting ten weeks each, for
prospectors and miners. The
courses include elementary training
in the principles of geology mining
and mineralogy.
In a heading to an article in the
Vancouver Star of recent date, it
was stated in big letters, "Mining
Slumps." The article was a telegraphic; dispatch from Ottawa, and
dealt briefly with progress made in
one or two industries. The odd
part of it is that no reference was
made in the article to the mining
industry. Two short paragraphs
made mention of the record production of gypsum and the negligible
production of iron ore, but nothing
to indicate what the general min
ing activity was in 1926.
The heading was very misleading
since mineral production iu Canada
hi 1926 was a record.   In 1925, the
value was $226,583,333,  while in
1926 it was $241,255,898,   au in
crease of 6.4 per cent.    Moreover,
metal prices in 1926 were lower
than in 1925, so that the produc
tion of the mines was proportion
ately greater.
When the Prince of Wales comes
to Vancouver he will be presented
with an ornamented oabicet containing samples of B. 0 ores, the
presentation to be made by the B.
C. Chamber of Mines. The gift
will be presented when the Prince
visits the Vancouver exhibition.
Give some people half a chance
and they will take the other half.

acres of British Columbia's timber were
sold for one cent per acre, which looked
like a fair price—then. To-day similar
timber is worth from $150 to $200 an acre,
so tremendously has timber appreciated in
value within the scope of an average lifetime.
What the young growth of to-day will be
worth sixty years from now is beyond computation if it is protected from fire  and
allowed to reach maturity. ■

Chris Cane and Alex Davie left
on Tuesday for Indian River,
where they will endeavor to entice
the succulent trout to view his
surroundings from an elevated
angle.
J. P. Scarlett, government agent
at Stewart is relieving R. M. Ale-
Gusty, who is spending a vacation
in the south. Mr. Scarlett visited
Alice Arm during the week, and
renewed many old acquaintances,
of the Dolly Varden boom days.
A Cigar that pleases on account
of its quality The El Doro. Try
one and be convinced.
C. P. Ashmore, arrived last week
from Vancouver. Mr. Ashmore is
succeeding Mr. L. F. Champion as
manager of the General Stores.
He will take full charge on the first
of next month. Mrs. Ashmore and
child will join him in a few weeks.

next two months. During his

experienced tailor, who will render
the same excellent service.    Hours

F. F. Brown has received a letter
from Allan Kelton, the well known
wrestler of Vancouver asking for
a return match with Diok Stubbs
tlie local champion. It is expected
that these two well known and
popular wrestlers will be matched
some time during the latter part of
September, when the B. P. 0. Elks
stage their first big smoker of the
season.
Ralph Ingraham was taken from
Silver City to the Anyox Hospital
during the early part of the week.
His many friends in both towns
will be pleased to hear that he is
progressing favorably.
Herald Day Late This Week
The Herald was published a day
late this week. We regret the
delay, especially as papers will not
arrive in Anyox until Tuesday, but
it was unavoidable. It is something
that very seldom occurs, and we
trust none of our readers were inconvenienced.
