Ore Body on  Tiger Will
Be Crossscut Three Levels
' The winter's'programme of development work at the Tiger mine is
liow well under way. At the present time work is being concentrated
in the number two tunnel, During
;he summer the ore body in this
tunnel was encountered. It was
tot, however, ,cut through. This
;s now being done, and at The begin-
'ng of the week the ore had been
;rosscut a distance of five feet,
With the opposite wall not yet in
ight. Two shifts are being worked
,n number two tunnel.
When the ore has been crosscut
,n number two tunnel, development
,vork will be resumed on number
;hree. Early in the fall a blind lead
was encountered in this tunnel, at
t distance of 200 feet from the
portal, But the main body had not
jbeen reached. It is expected that
in additional 80 feet will have to be
driven before the main ore body is
encountered. When it has been
eached on this level and cross-
;ut to determine its width and richness the work of driving the main
funnel will be commenced.
' The main tunnel, will, when the
pre is encountered give a depth on
he ore of 800 feet below the surface.
Ore will then have, been developed
Sn three levels, and when . this has
5Cen done raises will be driven and
|lie blocking out of ore commenced.
|: The compressor plant, which
arrived a short time ago is now at
he mine and will be installed early
n the spring. All winter supplies
itor a full crew are also at. the mine.
The new 2-story bunkhouse built
this fall is now being occupied, and
is capable of providing accomodation for forty men.
Climax Group
In our last issue we published a
report of the acquisition of. the
Climax Group by the Utility Mines
No. 1 Ltd. who are developing the
Tiger. We gave a short account
of development work to date, but
during the week we have received
full data regarding development
work on this property.
The ore ledge on which development work was done by O. Besner
of Prince Rupert, the recent owner,
is traceable on the surface for a distance of over 500 feet. This ore
ledge was drifted on along the foot
wall for a distance of 50 feet. The
ore was then crosscut to the left a
distance of 25 feet which showed
the ledge to be 22 feet in width.
The ore is composed chiefly of galena
and argentite silver. Engineers
who have examined the property
state that the ore is primary and
should carry present values to a
great depth.
In addition to underground work
the ore ledge has been developed by
several surface cuts.
Lying south of the above mentioned ledge is another big ore body
having a width of 50 feet. A short
tunnel 8 feet in length has been
driven on it. It has never been
seriously developed, but is worth a
considerable amount of investigation.

Alice Arm Debate Set
For January 5th.
A public meeting was held at the
Alice Arm School on Wednesday
evening for the purpose of conducting, a series of debates during the
winter months.
Following a protracted discussion
it was decided that the first debate
be held on Saturday, January 5th
in T. W. Falconer's hall. The subject to be debated: "Resolved that a
truck road to the Upper Kitsault
Valley would be more beneficial to
the Alice Arm district than a railroad."
Affirmative speakers will be:
E. Greenaway, C. Gordon, E. Moss.
Negative: J. Trinder, T, W. Fal-
coner, M. Petersen.
Following the debate it is probable that the evening's entertainment will conclude with a dance, or
some other form of entertainment.
In addition to the above six
speakers, there are many others in
the camp who, it is hoped will consent to take part in the future debates. Will those interested kindly
inform E. Greenaway or E. Moss
so that plans can be made for future

Toric Mill Closed Down
During Week
Operations'were suspended for
the winter at the Toric I during the
week. The close-down was due to
the freezing of the water main which
carries water to the concentrating
mill. The majority of the staff
have arrived in town.
It is not expected that the mill
will be operated until next spring.
Whether development work will be
carried on in the mine is not at
present known.

Concentrator Team Win
Two Gaines Of
Last Friday and again on Monday the Concentrator basketballers
achieved victory but only after
strenuous . efforts. In their first
game against the Beach they were
lucky to win by 30-28. Two of
their men were off for peronals and
two others needed only one more
violation for banishment. The
Beach put up a an excellent game,
McLachlan counting fourteen
points. On Monday luck was with
the ore-crushers again. Mechanics
were always within striking distance, being only one point behind
in the second half. Evans and
Deane were lost to them early in
the game but Stewart Steele was
useful assistance, With a long
season ahead the winning team is
hard to choose.

E. MOSS, Editor and Publisher,
Debates on live modern subjects
is a form of recreation that cannot
be over indulged in. A Debating
Society was recently formed in
Anyox, and this week saw the
formation of a similar organization
in Alice Arm. Here, in both
towns, is a golden opportunity for
anyone to improve their public
speaking, or for the novice to break
the ice and learn to speak in public
as well as in private. The acquisition of the art of being able to express ones views to an audience,
whether large or small is an
achievement of paramount importance. Oftimes an opportunity
presents itself for a person to express
his views to an audience, but lack
of self-confidence holds him back,
and he is forced to keep his opinion
to himseif or at the best impart it
to a few intimate friends. It is
hoped that the Debating Society
in each town will receive wholehearted support, and that sufficient
speakers will be forthcoming to
carry on throughout the winter.
Sixteen more days and Christmas
will be here again, with its festivities and merry-making. Christmas
means unlimited mirth to the
majority. It is also a nightmare
for the average store clerk, postmaster and postal assistant. The
latter is due to the last minute rush
and in the case of the Postal Service if the safety margin is overstepped, a breakdown results and
letters and parcels to friends arrive
too late for the purpose intended.
Mail your letters and parcels in
ample time. It is much better for
your friends to receive them a few
days before Christmas than a few
days after* Postal workers are not
superhuman. There are also Only
24 hours a day. '
British Interests Develop
North Coal Fields
Plans of tlie powerful British interests reported backed by the
Mond Nickel interests to develop
large coal fields around Telkwa
and produce petroleum and other
by-products were made known last
week, following the recent sale of
Telkwa Collieries and Copper Kiver
ooal fields to an nil named purchaser
The program calls for the erection of large plants to use the Bussey
low temperature carbonization process for the manufacture' of coal
into many commercial products
after the extent of the coal holdings
around Telkwa have been determined.
That the application of the
Telkwa Kitimaat Railway Com '
pany to the legislature for a private
bill granting a charter to build a
railway from Telkwa west and
south to tidewater at Kitimaat is
closely related to the development
of the coal areas, is believed.

No Abolition of Income
Tax Says Robb
In addressing the Canadian Club
at Vancouver recently, the Hon.
James Robb said: "Some gentlemen
in the east have had the idea that
the income tax will' be removed. I
submit to those gentlemen who hold
tax exempt bonds which mature in
1933, and I want to say that the
government will not issue any more
ta-fc exempt bonds, who is going to
pay interest on the bonds which are
refloated to refund these securities?
Income tax will Be lighter as conditions permit, but income is going to
remain in Canada for a long time."
Tbe minister asked the audience
to compare the Canadian taxes with
other - countries of the world.
"When compared with some of the
states in the country to the south,
the Canadian had little reason to
grumble," he said. \

Copper Again Leading
Metal In Value Of
The outstanding factor in metal
prices has been the recent rapid rise
in copper. With a 16 cent copper
market well established and a firm
outlook for this price to be maintained, copper mines are prospering,
and a renewed stimulus is given to
the development and equipment of
copper properties in the province.
World lead and zinc prices have
been weak and unsatisfactory during
most of the year. The statistical
position of lead is however good,
and the outlook for the future is
fairly satisfactory. The best that
can be said for zinc is that the price
seems to have reached bedrock and
that no further decline is imminent.
It is expected our copper output
this year will approximate 100,000,-
000 lbs. With the increased production and a higher average price,
copper comes back to its old position
in having the highest yearly value
of the province of any mineral produced.
This year that value will be
slightly over $14,000,000.^ >
Lead production will amount to
about 300,000,000 lbs., an increase
of about 20,000,000 lbs. over 1927.
Zinc output will probably be the
same or very slightly higher than in
1927. For several months the zinc
plant at Trail could not be worked
to capacity owing to lack of power,
or undoubtedly a considerably larger
zinc output would have been made.
Silver production will show a decline of nearly a million ounces as
compared with 1927, when 10,470,-
185 ounces were produced. The
cause of this decrease is not yet
apparent and later figures may materially change this estimate. '

The Ernprua Hotel. Victoria, Use beautiful grounds of which will be brilliant with
holly berries during the season of rivalry, being arranged as aa old English
Christmas  festival.
Imagine Chrietmas in England in 1328, 600 years ago. The dawn of
the Reformation was all but breaking, but the Church still held place
of power in state as in religion, and had been for centuries the fount
of all learning. A primitive age—rough and relentless, and its people
were primitive to a degree hardly conceivable in this age. Rough, hard
living was lightened by rough hard play and such church festivals as
Christinas were celebrated in carousing and high revels by those as
could command the means for such employment. Religious teaching
came to the mass of the people only by word of mouth, and as a means
of making the New Testament stories living.and understandable, incidents of the Bible story were presented in simple plays as primitive
as the understandings of their audiences. They were called Mystery
Plays and one of the first of them, and, therefore, perhaps, the first
of all plays to be performed in England was the story of the adoration
of the shepherds and the Magi, written by Randall Higden, a monk of
Chester Abbey and first performed at Christmas in the year 1328, just
six hundred years -ago. f
Prom that day to this is a long time, but there has been a revival
of interest in the beautiful things of mediaeval days, and a few years
ago the Chester Mysteries were brought to Canada and presented for
the first time in America at Hart House Theatre, Toronto University.
There they met with instantaneous success, and for several Christmases
were a feature of Toronto's holiday celebration. Later they were presented as part of a Chrietmas service in the chancel of the church of
St. Mary Magdalene, Toronto. It will next be seen at Victoria, B.C.,
as part of the old English Christmas celebration that is being arranged
to take place at the Empress Hotel there this year.
It will be the central feature of a notable revival of the Christmas
customs of England dating from the middle ages down to the time of
Dickens and Mr. Pickwick. In the costumes of that periods, singers,
actors and musicians will, between Christmas and Twelfth Night lead
the revels and the entire celebration will wind up with a costume ball.
Victoria is already famous as a winter resort. Its mild, pleasant weatheij
permitting golf and motoring practically every day and its wonderful
salt-water swimming baths have made the most English city in North
America an ideal place in which to spend the winter, and with the prolamine of Christmas revels it is likely that the number of visitors to
that city from the prairies and from some of the western states will ba
unusually large.
