Officers For Community
League Elected
Community League Councillors
on Wednesday evening chose 0. G.
Macintyre as President; 1st. Vice
President, Capt. A. Cameron; 2nd.
Vice-President. Fred Watson.
Hereafter the minutes of all
meetings will be posted for al! to
read. Those interested in the
finances of the league will be supplied with a simplified financial
statement monthly. The new
councillors have started off enthusiastically to get more members.
One inducement which is held out
is an invitation to all members to
attend the Council meetings. Just
■where any new members will be
found remains a question, and, besides, there isn't room enough in
Reoreation Hall to accommodate
the present membership if thej
should allv crash the gate at once.
Development of Silver Cord Revealing
Large Ore Body of Good Value
Tennis Enthusiasts Preparing
For Season
Tennis enthusiasts are promised
an organization meeting in the
near future. Someone can shovel
off the courts meanwhile.
On account of other attractions
on Monday night, the entertainment
for ladies at the pool room will be
held on Wednesday, March 21st.
Winds Up Badminton
Badminton devotees wound up
the short season's business last
week by deciding to retain the
money on hand in the coffers until
next season.
Ladies Aid Will Hold Bargain
Sale, March 23rd.
The Ladies' Aid of the United
Church will hold their Annual
Spring Bargain in the Church Hall,
on Friday, March 23rd. There will
be on sale, home cooking, oandy,
plain and fancy sewing, plants: and
a stall devoted to his majesty-
Baby. Afternoon tea will be served. Keep this date open, March
23rd.
During the week two falls of
beautiful snow again gave the district an arctic appearance. If the
old adage, that the new snow takes
away the old, works true to form
this year we should shortly see the
ground bare. It all depends probably on the exact amount of snow
required. An overdose is liable to
kill the patient.

That a mine is in the making at
the Silver Cord is indioated by reports received from authoritive
sources by the Herald during the
week.
The new tunnel, which was
commenced last fall in order to
gain dapth on the ore is now in 400
feet from the portal, with ore over
the whole face. Several large
spectacular samples brought down
during the week, show the ore to
of unusual high grade for such a
large body. They are composed of
massive ore carrying silver, lead,
zinc and gold values.
The quality of the ore is getting
better as depth is obtained, and it
is estimated that the ore body will
measure 100 feet in width when
crosscutting is commenced, as the
ledge shows this width on the surface. Crosscutting will be carried
on when an additional 100 feet has
been driven in the tunnel.   The
present depth from the surface is
about 300 feet. It is therefore
plain that already a large tonnage
of ore has been developed and
should the width be maintained
from the surface, an additional 100
of tunnelling will rank the Silver
Cord among the sensational mines
of the province for amount of ore
developed at small cost.
No ore of such value as is now
being encountered underground
has been discovered on the Rttrface
except at one point, and this is at
an elevation of 3000 feet.
The Silver Cord is being developed by the British Colonial Securities Ltd. of Vancouver, with
A. McGuire in charge of operations. During the winter they have
driven 500 feet of tunnel, and it is
tlieir intention to push development of the property uninterruptedly.
As soon as the ground is clear of
!snow to the mine, making it possible to transport supplies by pack
horses, the working staff will be
considerably increased, and a com
pressor plant will probably be
installed to expediate the work.
In addition to the Silver Cord
the oompany are also developing
the Eagle and LeRoy. Work on
these properties was closed down
during the winter, but as soon as
horses can be used the development
of the Eagle will re-commence.
No large amount of work will be
undertaken on the LeRoy until the
trail is put in condition for pack
horses, although this property has
the earmarks of a mine judging
from the surface showings.
The successful development of
the Silver Cord will unquestionably
draw attention to mining properties in this locality, which inoludes
the ore bodies on the west slope of
McGrath mountain.
M  W. Jasper and Associates Secured
Control of LaRose Mine on Thursday
Yesterday afternoon the Herald
received a telegram from Prince
Rupert stating that the LaRose
deal had been completed the previous day.
Negotiations for a control of the
property has been going on for
some time, and its completion is a
source of great satisfaction to
everyone.
M. W. Jasper, mining engineer
ofthe State of Washington; also
well known in Atlin and British
Columbia and who is associated
with J. M. Morrison and other original shareholders, has purchased the
stock of Miles Donald and J. Wells
of Alice Arm and Dr. W. T. Kergin
of Prince Rupert, thus securing
control. The sale was made on a
spot cash basis for a handsome
sum, the amount of which has not
yet been divulged.
A re-organization of the company
will be made on March 27th. when
the annual meeting will be held in
Prince Rupert and a new Board of
Directors elected, and plans made
for the equipment and development
of the mine.
It is understood that development
will be commenced almost immedi
ately. A compressor plant installed
and it is expected that an aerial
tramway will be built and later a
concentrating mill installed.
The LaRose is one of the best
known mining properties in the
Alice Arm district. It has made
several shipments of high grade ore
There is also a large tonnage developed ready to be mined, and
now that ample funds are available
there is no question but that the
LaRose will become a steady ore
producer of considerable tonnage.
Anyox P. T. A. Will Discuss
Important Business
There will be several important
business items to discuss at the P.
T. A. meeting to he held on Monday night. Among these will be:
"Shall the Association send a dele-
to the Convention?"
Mr. Geo. M. Lee will give an instructive talk, and there will be
music and refreshments to round
out the evening.
The Steamship "Prince Rupert"
has entered drydock for her annual
overhaul, and the northern run is
now being taken care of by the
"Prince George"

Numerous   Properties  Will
Operate at Alice Arm
With operations being carried on
at the Wolf, Esperanza, Silver
Cord, Keystone, LaRose, Eagle,
Success, Riverside, North Star,
and Toric, mining in Alice Arm will
be far from stagnant this year, as a
few, (very few now) imagine. In
addition to the above mentioned,
several other properties will possibly
be having their riches exposed
before the first snows of next winter powders the high peaks.

E. MOSS, Editor and Publisher.
It is gratifying to note that
prominent British Columbian capitalists and business men are becoming alive to the great possibilities of the mining industry of the
province. They are realizing that
mining and the development of
mining properties to a productive
stage is as safe an investment as
can be found. There are several
reasons for this, chief of which is
due to the high dividends now
being paid by some of the operating companies rn B. C, and also
Ontario men has shown them that
mining pays big profits to those
who are willing to invest their
money in sound projects. Every
mining industry is profiting by this
change of front on the part of
big British Columbia investors, and
from authentic reports Alice Arm
will also profit this year. Plans
are being laid for the taking over
of several well known properties
and it is possible that this year will
be among the best the mining
industry has experienced in the
district.
Reports were circulated during
the week that control of a well
known mine in the Alice Arm
district had changed hands. At
the time of writing, the deal had
not been made, although it is
possible that it will be done before
we put the last pages on the
press. We had all available information regarding this particular
deal in our possession last week,
but withheld it until word was
received that everything was satisfactorily settled. A newspaper
can not publish reports picked up
on the streets, for it often happens
that an apology is forthcoming in
the next issue for mis-statement of
facts. Often when we have
investigated reports they were
found to be plain imagination on
someone's part. Our readers have
always been among the first to
obtain reliable news of any mining
transaction, and when we publish
such news it can be taken as
correct.

What The League Of
Nations Is Doing For
Humanity
i
What has the League of Nations
done.?
Now that the League of Nations
has been in organization for almost
nine years we might well ask, has
it justified its existence.? Has it
done any good.? What has it accomplished.?
The answer to suoh questions
covers many printed pages but
stated briefly is as follows.
The League has prevented six
wars.
The League has established a
World Court of International Justice.
The League has prevented the
spread of epidemic diseases in
many parts of the world and is
working to eliminate them.
The League has repatriated over
four hundred thousand war prisoners who were homeless and destitute.
The League has effectively restricted the traffic iu women and
children.
The League has established a
world wide organization to stamp
out the use of opium and other
harmful drugs.
The League has reconstructed
Austria and Hungary and given
sense of security and peace throughout Europe; and thus restored millions of people to a state of economic
and business stability which enables them to buy from Canada
and other countries.
The League has through the International Labor Bureau removed
many long standing misconceptions
that existed between Capital and
Labor.
The League has declared aggressive war a crime against humanity.
British Columbia Will
Be Advertised
Business men in all lines of endeavor throughout the province
are expressing approval of the announcement that British Columbia
will be extensively advertised by
the government. Dnring consideration of the estimates in the legislature it was stated that already
moving pictures showing the province's opportunities and industrial
and commercial development have
been made. When they are edited
and suitably prepared they will be
sent on their mission of boosting
British Columbia. Higher votes
for various forms of advertising
will be provided. This year's estimate is placed at $65,000 and
Premier MacLean states that it is
the intention to extend this service.

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 tnis 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 yeare-

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 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 whioh is guaranteed by
0rown Grants.
Practically all British Columbia Mineral Properties upon whioh development work has been done
are described in some one of the Annual Beports of the Minister of Mines. Those considering
mining investments should refer to such reports. They are available without charge on application
to the Department of Mines, Victoria, B. C. Reports covering each of the six mineral Survey
Districts are published separately, and are available on application. Reports of the Geological
Survey of Canada, Winch Building, Vanoouver, are recommended as valuable sources of inform" tion.

by 1950 and the declaration that

O'
, NE of the finest Alpine territories to be found anywhere
on the North American Continent is that surrounding Mount
Robson, (13,068 ft.), highest peak
in the Canadian Rockies. Here the
visitor finds magnificent peaks,
awe-inspiring glaciers and delightful Alpine valleys with their magnificence of wild flowers to charm
the heart of the nature lover. In
1924 the Alpine Club of Canada
held its annual camp on the shores
of Berg Lake, shown above, and
members of that organization,
many of whom have' climbed in different parts of   the   world, were
unanimous in declaring that Canada held no more splendid Alpine
und scenic territory than this.
Nor is it necessary that the visitor be an experienced Alpinist to
enjoy the beauties of the Mount
Robson district, for there are within a short distance of the Berg
Lake bungalow, splendid peaks
which are easy enough in ascent
for the tyro and yet offering splendid views of the surrounding Alp-
lands.
The photograph shows Mount
Robson, the monarch of the Canadian Rockies, and Berg Lake, so
named because of   the   icebergs
which are constantly floating on its
surface. Beneath is one of the
Swiss guides from Jasper Park
Lodge, coiling his rope in preparation for leading an ascent on
Mount Robson, while to the right
he is shown making his way round
one of the difficult ice peaks of the
climb.
Ponies and guides are available
at Mt. Robson station to conduct
tourists from there over the magnificent Robson Trail to Berg Lake,
where comfortable bungalows are
maintained, which provide an excellent starting point for many
wonderful excursions into the
higher passes,     —C.N.R, Photos.

Stewart Short Line
Information from Stewart is to

on the Portland Canal Short Line
Railway there is to be started immediately by Hon. H. H. Stevens,
M. P., and W. A. Lewthwaite.
It is said that four hundred men
will be employed as soon as weather
permits commencement of the
work. The proposal is to recondition the road so as to serve the
mines of the Bear River Valley
and eventually penetrate further
beyond.
Mr. Lewthwaite recently arrived

To FOI Hon. William

With a general election in sight
within the near future, it is not the
intention of Premier MacLean to
call a by-election in Nanaimo to
fill the seat of the late Hon. William Sloan, minister of mines and
commissioner of fisheries. Hon.
Mr. Sloan was one of the outstanding departmental heads in all Canada. He followed a rigid plan of
superintending the work of his two
departments, leaving the detail
work largely in the hands of trained executives. The latter will be
able to carry the work without
difficulty until after the general
election, when Premier MacLean
will have to form a new cabinet
and fill the several seats which are
vacant. Meanwhile, one of the
other ministers will act as minister

Mining Engineers Will Visit
Alice Arm
Several mining engineers, representing influential companies are
booked to visit Alice Arm this year.
If they plan to stay and investigate
they will probably see more ore
here than in any other camp on the
continent for the amount of money
expended. Alice Arm has nothing
to be ashamed of in the development of its mining properties, but
it has a lot to be proud of.
Debates innumerable have been
in progress during the past few
weeks around Alice Arm. The
subject under discussion is: "What
constitutes a fair price for an tin-
developed mineral claim, and what
terms should a prospector give.'
We should say get what you can.
Always remembering of course,
that thirty or forty thousand dollars in the hand is worth a lot
more than two or three hundred
thousand dollars in imagination.
A sack of gold wont keep a lost man
from starving on the desert, nor is
a low grade property from ten to
twenty-five miles from tide water
of any benefit to the owner unless
he can sell it.
If you have any news items of
local interest mail them to the

Prince RupertShipments
Break Records
That grain shipments out of the
port of Prince Rupert for the present season will be substantially
ahead of the record for last year is
now assured. As nearly as can be
estimated on a very conservative
basis, official figures not being
available for publication, at least
some 5,289,615 bushels has now
been shipped from there on eighteen vessels since the present season
opened as compared with a total of
5,579,898 bushels on twenty ships
for the whole 1926-27 season up to
June 15 last.
