Airplane Brings Mining
Men to Alice
Dropping out of the clouds at
Alice Arm on Saturday afternoon,
Arthur Smith and C. W. Meldrum
of Vancouver, took everyone by
surprise by their unexpected visit.
They had flown frorfi Prince Rupert
in an hour, which brings the northern metropolis pretty close to us.
All eyes were turned skyward,
when the roar of airplane engines
broke upon the stillness of a summer
afternoon. The plane made a circle
of the town and flats and came to a
perfect landing on the bay.
The flying boat is owned by the
Boeing Aircraft Co. and is operated
by the Western Canada Airways.
It is a bi-plane, named the "Penguin" and is piloted by Walter E.
Gilbert. It is the first plane to visit
Alice Arm.
The aircraft returned to Prince
Rupert the same afternoon and on
Sunday morning returned with E.
G. Davidson, who joined Messrs.
Smith and Meldrum. During the
afternoon an effort was made by
these three passengers to effect a
landing on one of the lakes in the
Bowman Lake area. The plane
attained a height of 12,000 feet over
the town before heading for its destination. The effort to make use
of the lakes as a base was fruitless.
A landing could be made, but not
enough space was available for a
The intention of the passengers
was to investigate the possibilities
of the country from a mining standpoint in the area north of Bowman
lakes and the Nass slope. Arthur
Smith is an old resident of the camp
and is acquainted with the country.
It is understood that an English
Mining Syndicate is interested in
the enterprise.
Messrs. Smith and Meldrum will
spend some time here inspecting
various mining properties.
E. G. Davidson, who is head
field engineer for the company also
inspected several properties, and is
leaving today for the south, but
hopes to return later.
Ore Struck In No. 3 Tunnel
At Tiger
High grade was encountered in
No. 3 tunnel at the Tiger mine last
week-end.    The width of the ore
has not yet been determined, but it
is now being crosscut.     Further
[particulars will be published as soon
las the size and quality of the ore
■body has been determined.

Mohawk Group
Development of the Mohawk pro

lave been taken in this week by the
lack trains of the Alice Arm
freighting Co.
Many   Excursionists  Spend
Sunday Larcom Island
Although the weather was not at
its best a large nnmber of people
took the opportunity given by the
Granby Company of using the
launch "Granby" for an excursion
to the   sawmill   on   Sunday   last.
The lioat left at 10 a.m.- having
on board a number of people who
seemed to be anxious to get to
their destination. The boat returned after letting off its passengers
only to set out again at 2 p.m. with
a similar crowd. A number who
went in the morning returned at
4 o'clock but there was still a boat-
full to return at five.
Everyone seemed happy having
spent an enjoyable day. Many
thanks are due the Granby Company for having made possible this
excursion and we hope that if opportunity arises we may again have
the same privilege.
Officers Appointed For Flats
Tennis Club
There was great difficulty in getting a suitable attendance to organize a new Tennis Club at the flats,
but however, on Monday the club
was finally formed. The new court
was locked up Until its governing
officers could take office. On
Monday the following officers were
elected: Honorary President, Mr.
F. Dresser; President, Mr. J.
Anderson; Vice-President, Mr. M.
Thompson; Secretary, Mr. D.
Campbell. Committee, Mrs. W.
Henderson, Mrs. S. N. Stretton,
Mr. L. Dodd and Mr. F. H.
The rules of the play will be
drawn up and posted at the Court
by the Executive. Anyone wishing
to purchase membership of the Club
will please do so before Friday
July 26.
Farewell Party Given To Mr.
and Mrs. C. H. Clay
Mr. and Mrs. C. H. Clay left on
Friday afternoon on their new boat
which was christened the "Tilly Sea"
on Thursday evening by Miss Kathleen Eve. A large number of Mr.
and Mrs. Clay's friends assembled
at the boat to see the ceremony and
were afterwards taken to the Sawmill where a party was held in
honor of Mr. and Mrs. Clay's departure.
Mr. and Mrs. Clay left on a fishing trip for the remainder of the
summer. All their friends wish
them the best of luck and health
during the trip.

Development on Home-
Guard Will Be
Development work will be considerably extended in the near
future on the Homeguard property.
A new company is being formed to
operate the property on a larger
scale than has been done in the
past by the Dalhousie Co. The
new company is being sponsored
by the Dalhousie Co. and plans for
an extensive development programme will be made as soon as
an examination has been instituted.
As reported in previous issues,
several new discoveries of orebodies
have been made this year. The
Homeguard is unique in regard to
some of its ore showings. On its
surface are tremendous boulders of
copper ore as large as a small
house, and further development
work is expected to definitely locate
their origin. The point from where
they broke off is considered by experts to be close, otherwise they
would have broken had they travelled any great distance.
The new discoveries made this
year were both in solid ore and it-
is expected that the big ore body
known to exist will be definitely
established this slimmer.
The Homeguard is considered
among the best mining properties
in the distriot, and high values,
whioh have been published in
previous issues, have been obtained
from its ores. The values are sil
ver, copper and gold.
Work Commenced On
Red Bluff Group
The Red Bluff Mining Syndicate
commenced work on the Red Bluff
property this week. The first work
undertaken is the building of a trail
to the property and the erection of
a camp. One and a half miles of
trail will be built, and will connect
up with the North-east Fork trail.
What development work will be
done on the property this year has
not yet been determined. Mr. J,
N. McPhee is in charge of operations.
The Red Bluff group is situated
about 4J miles from Alice Arm.
The chief value of its ores is copper.
Development work is expected to
locate large bodies of copper ore,
judging from its surface showings
Owing to its close proximity to tide
water, mining can be carried on at
a very moderate cost.

It is very probable that the commencement of the building of a road
suitable for auto cars and trucks
will be made next year up the
Illiance river valley.
Such a road would open up for
transportation the mineral area of
the Illiance river section of the district and stimulate mining in this
neglected section of the Alice Arm
The road, when extended up
Illiance river could easily be built
over to the Naas slope and extended to the Naas river. It could then
be carried up the Cranberry river,
which is a tributary of the Naas,
and built into a point near Hazelton, without any extraordinary expense.
An auto road from Alice Arm to
Hazelton would give us connection
with the extensive road system of
the province and also the North
American continent. Such a road
would cause a large influx of tourists to Alice Arm. Tourists delight
in traversing our northern primeval forests and gaze with rapture
on our scenic beauties. It would
be the only road through to the
coast north of Vancouver It could
be built cheaper than any other
road to the coast. This latter
statement may be disputed by
neighboring coast towns, but surveys will undoubtedly show that
such is the case.
The road, apart from attracting
tourists, who always depart with
less money than they brought in,
will open up, as before stated, the
mineral section of the Illiance. It
will also provide transporation for
the rich and fertile Cranberry
river valley. Bich in agricultural
land, timber, game and minerals.
The Cranberry river valley is said
by those who have travelled extensively in the north to be the
most fertile valley known throughout the whole north. Today it is
a picturesque wilderness awaiting
The most expensive part of the
road would be on the Illiance end.
As soon as the Naas river was
reached and bridged, building
would be a comparatively easy
matter as the country is Jevel with
an abundance of gravel suitable
for surfacing purposes. The road
could be commenced at both ends
as soon as surveys were completed,
and finished long before any other
road now being contemplated being
built through to the coast.
It is high time the great hinterland that lies to the east of us was
developed, and also that Alice Arm
was given an outlet to the interior.

The most prosperous of the
basic industries of British Columbia
is mining, and has been for the
past two or three years. The
future appears as bright as ever.
The expansion is proceeding along
conservative lines, and no hectic
boom, such as was experienced in
several camps a decade or two ago
is anticipated. Mining properties
of merit are being taken over by
big concerns as well as small companies almost daily. No particular
district is being favored. The expansion is going steadily on from
the Alberta boundary to the West
Coast of Vancouver Island, and
from the southern boundary to the
Yukon border. Mining companies
seem more anxious to do business
with the prospector than at any
time in history. And will do un
less the price and terms of a pros
pect are prohibitive. If they are
the prospector keeps his prospect
and the mining company does busi
ness somewhere else.
Dr. Mandy Will Have
Assistant This Summer
Herbert Carmichael, formerly
assistant provincial mineralogist
has been appointed to assist Dr.
J. T. Mandy, resident mining engineer for the Northwestern district.
Mr. Carmichael will visit the mining areas of Atlin and other northern parts. Dr. Mandy will now be
able to devote more time to the
southern part of this mining district. In view of the increased expansion of the mining industry an
assistant was very much needed
during tbe summer months.
Provincial   Gold   Output
British Columbia's output of gold
in 1928, totalling 196,617 fine
ounces, was 7 per cent greater than>
in the previous year. Production
from the Dominion as a whole
attained a new high record, being
1,890,586 fine ounces worth, $39,-
082,005, according to figures issued
by the Dominion Bureau of Statists. Tbe total for 1927 was $38,-
The appointment of an assistant
engineer to Dr. J. T. Mandy of
the Northwestern district, fills a
long felt want. The Minister of
Mines is to be commended for the
step taken, and we hope that an
assistant or possibly two will be
appointed each sui TieT. This
division covers an immense area,
and it is impossible for one man to
cover it thoroughly as he should
do. More prospects in outlying
sections are being developed each
year. If the Minister of Mines is
to continue publishing his Annual
Report it should be exact, and no
report on any prospect or developed property should be published
unless a thorough examination has
been made. In the past this has
been done as much as possible,
and we believe that this year's report will contain more information
than any previous report.
During the past few weeks
Anyox and Alice Arm have received vijits from airplanes. Passengers have arrived in both towns
from other places and have also
departed. As published in these
columns a few weeks ago, it is
possible that airplane travel between
northern coast towns and the interior will become popular within a
few years. It costs a little more
at present, but an enormous
amount of time is saved, and time
is money to a busy man.
from Stewart eastward eventually
reaching the Peace River country
would detract ,from Vancouver's
participation in Peace River freight
traffic or otherwise injure Vancouver.
The fear is based on a misconception. The more economical
the conditions for producing grain
in the Peace River country the
more will Vancouver profit by the
resultant prosperty. The greater
Stewart and its hinterland become,
the greater will be the market for
Vancouver-produced commodities.
For whereas there is nothing but a
vast stretch ofi undeveloped open
land in the north today there will
be numerous settlements and communities in the north similar to
to those in the southern section of
tbe province and Vancouver, estab-
ished manufacturing and financial
community of the province, will inevitably benefit in proportion to the
expansion  of   northern  prosperty.

Melvin Group Is Being
Stewart News
Camp was established this week
on the Melvin group, adjoining the
Porter Idaho on the north fork of
the Marmot river. The camp is
about 1000 feet from the Prosperty
camp, and a tunnel has been start
ed, with two shifts working, ex
tending the drift commenced last
fall on a vein carrying high-grade
ore on the Porter Idaho that
traverses tbe Melvin ground. The
present plan is to extend this drift
for 200 to 250 feet and then drop

Whale Fishing Is Good
On Coast
Some of the old-time picturesque-
ness may have departed from whaling but the industry is still prosecuted successfully off Canada's
western coast and in the first two
weeks of the 1929 season, which
began in May, twenty whales were
taken by a company operating from
Rose Harbor, B. C. The whales
taken off British Columbia are used
in the production of oil, meal and
fertilizer, and, of course, they are
valuable too, for their whalebone.
On the average, the twenty
whales taken as the Rose Harbor
began its season ran about fifty feet
in length but one fellow, a sulphur,
measured eighty-two feet. Eleven
of the twenty were sperms, no less
than seven of them being killed in
one day. There were seven finbacks, one humpback, and one sulphur.
Examination of the stomachs of
these whales indicated that the octopus have a favorite place on the
sperm's menu. The finbacks, on
the other hand, evidently relish

Completing a trip crowded with
interesting experiences, W. B.
George, pioneer prospector and
property owner of the Portland
Canal district, after whom the
George Gold-Copper group, now
owned by the Consolidated Co., is
named, arrived last Saturday from
the interior via the Stikine river
route. Mr. George has been in
around the headwaters of the Stikine and Finlay rivers on a prospecting expedition, in which he
covered all the territory between
those sections and Telegraph creek.
Edmonton's present population is

Consolidated To Start Work
On Railway
The Consolidated Mining and
Smelting Company are losing no
time in starting work on the Canadian Northeastern Railway. Last
week A. McCullough, chief engineer
of the Kettle Valley Railway, arrived at Stewart with a party to start
preliminary survey from that end of
the steel through Bear River pass
as far as the Nass River.
The general opinion is that this
precedes active work shortly on the
extension of the line, at least as far
as the George Copper mine.
