Allowing Bonds to Lapse
on Copper Properties
Causes Surprise
Operations at the Vanguard,
which is under bond to Col.
Spencer and associates, terminated
this week and on Thursday the contractors came down.
This concludes delelopment work
on the four copper properties bonded by Col. Victor Spencer and
associates last October.
During the past summer development work on all properties has been
in charge of H. W. Heidman. In
an interview with the Herald yesterday he stated that the bonds on
all four properties would be allowed
to lapse. The reason being given
that not enough ore had been developed to warrant further expenditure. While admitting that the ore
on the Vanguard was of exceptional
value, and was over nine feet wide
at the point of intersection he stated
that the tonnage was lacking. He
claimed that the ore on the Vanguard had petered out in the north
drift which is 77 feet in length.
The footage of underground work
on the Vanguard is 535 feet, on the
Red Point 715 feet, and on the
Copper Cliff 115 feet. No work
whatever was done on the Home-
The relinquishing of these properties has caused considerable surprise, especially as they were recommended by Dr. Slocum of Pittsburg,
one of the leading geologists on the
continent. Dr. Slocum spent a
month in the Upper Kitsault Country
last year and made an exhaustive
examination of the geology and ore
It is the general impression among
the miners of Alice Arm that not one
property has been given a fair show
It is argued that enough ore has
been developed on the Vanguard to
justify the first payment, which is
only $5,000 and due at the end of
the month. The contractors, who
completed the drift state that a
crosscut driven a distance of 50 feet
from the main tunnel where the ore
was interesected showed five feet of
high grade and 15 feet of low grade
ore. The drift was then continued
a distance of 27 feet and the rock
was well mineralized when work
was stopped. No crosscut was
driven at the end of the drift so that
the width of the mineralized zone
was not determined. Col. Spencer
and associates it is argued obtained
exceptionally good value for their
money on the Vanguard and the
amount and value of ore developed
did not justify their dropping the
The tunnel on the Red Point
proved a blank and here again exception is taken. Those who are
acquainted with the property are
confident that ore would have been
encountered if the tunnel had been
driven in a more easterly direction.
The Copper Cliff was condemned
after driving only 115 feet of tunnel
and as stated above no work what-
Biggest Sporting Event
Ever Held in North
One of the chief topics of conversation among local sporting fans
during the week has been the probable winners at the big sporting
event, which will be held at the
Anyox Gymnasium on Friday
This promises to be one of the
biggest sporting events ever held
in the north, and the fans are certain of obtaining full value for
tlieir money.
The chief wrestling bout will be
between Allan Kelton of Vanoouver and Diok Stubbs of Anyox.
Kelton wrestled here last year, and
those who saw him admit that he
knows the game perfectly. He is
acknowledged to not only be the
best of his weight in British Columbia but in Canada. Diok
Stubbs does not need any introducing. It is well known that if
he had been given a fair decision at
New Westminster last year he
would have won the lightweight
championship of B. C.
The boxing card itself should be
well worth the admission. Battling
Gurvich of Prinoe Rupert will mix
with Jimmy Ferguson of Anyox in
six 2-minute rounds. Both of these
fighters are mixers and are in the
pink of condition.
Eddie Smith of Prince Rupert,
will go four 2-minute rounds with
Russel McMillan nf the Mine.
Smith is reputed to be one of the
best light weight boxers in the
north, McMillan is a hard hitting
tricky boxer, and he is confident
that he can stop his opponent. The
boys will weigh in at 100 pounds.
In addition to the above head-
liners four good preliminaries will
be pulled off by looal boxers. The
boys are training hard at the Gym
and rumour has it that one
especially will be hot stuff.
For those who wish to see good
olean sport, with plenty of aotion,
Friday'night promises to be splendid opportunity.

ever was done on the Homestake.
It is regrettable that Col. Spencer
and associates are so easily discouraged, but it must be taken into
consideration that they do not fully
understand mining. Their action
may retard the development of the
camp to some extent and on the
other hand it may prove otherwise,
for they have proven that the high
grade on the Vanguard extends to
a depth of 200 feet; that it is 9 feet
8 inches wide at one point, and that
it extends a length of 105 feet. How
much farther it extends and how
deep it goes, will be found out by
those who next bond the property
and profit by the work done this
Championship Cups are
Presented at Dance
The annual Tennis Club Dance
was held at tlie Elks' Hall on Friday evening. A large number of
dancers were present, making the
event a huge success.
During the course of the evening

Why You Should Buy a
Dance Ticket
On Monday, November 1st. the
annual dance for the Hospital will
be held.
This affair is in the capable
hands of the Ladies' Hospital Auxiliary, to whom no small amount of
praise is due to their devotion of
time and energy in their various
enterprises, which help to provide
comforts for the inmates of the
Anyox General Hospital. The
funds created by the sale of tickets
for this dance will be spent on van
ious things, which will help to make
life a little more pleasant for those
unfortunates who become sick and
mained during the coming year.
Last year, the revenue raised by
this dance was spent on gramophone records, subscriptions to various magazines, flowers, plants, and
also helped Santa Claus to remember every individual patient on
Christmas Eve.
Kindly remember, Monday, Oct.
31st. and help the Ladies' Hospital
Auxiliary by buying a ticket for
this dance.

Ore Struck at Keystone
Ore was encountered in the tunnel
at the Keystone mine during the
early part of the week. It is understood that the tunnel has not
yet encountered solid ore, but indications are extremely good, and it
is expected that a few more rounds
will disclose solid ore in quantity.
In our next week's issue we hope to
give a full report of the operations
conducted at the mine this year by
the Keystone Mining Co.

Chamber of Mines was held on
Monday evening at the School
House, when a fair number of
members were present.
President O. Evindson piesided,
and F. D. Rice acted as secretary
in the absence of A. D. Yorke.
The question of building a wagon
road from the end of the steel of
the Dolly Varden Railway was
brought up, and the secretary read
a copy of the letter that had been
forwarded to the Hon. Wm. Sloan,
Minister of Mines.
Neil Forbes, who was a member
of the committee appointed at the
last meeting to canvass for new
members stated that he had been
successful in obtaining ten new ones.
This was a very creditable performance and his services were much
appreciated by those present.
H. F. Kergin addressed the
meeting in regard to the efforts
of the Game Conservation Board of
which he is a member. The address
was appreciated and considerable
discussiqn ensued. The killing of
mountain goat came up for discussion, as did also the unlawful practice of gaffing salmon in the creeks
and leaving them dead on the banks
to putrify the air. The secretary
was instructed to ascertain when
the Game Conseivation Board met,
so that recommendations could be

Work on the Big Missouri road
is being rushed to the utmost,
more than 100 men having been at
work for some weeks, using power
drills and every possible contrivance for hastening the work.
Officials of the company said yesterday that they expected to have
a nine-foot road completed through
to the Big Missouri in about three
weeks, several miles of it having
already been finished.
The acquisition of Big Missouri
by the Consolidated being a deal
of much interest, the News took
steps to obtain details from an
authoritative source in the south,
and received the following, which
is   reported to be approximately

the present bond to Lindeborg, aud
I' other expenditures of $140,000 on
the property, 53 per cent is to he
issued to the Consolidated. The
present Big Missouri Co. is to put
up $50,000, being balanoedue Lindeborg, and are to receive 47 per

Engineers and mining men who
have examined the Silverado discoveries pronounce them the most
sensational ever made in the north
not even the Prosperity on the opposite side of the hill. John
Haahti, who located these four
veins, aud is in charge of development, Ctttne into town last night
with a sample of ore weighing 40
lbs. the whole of which was heavily
impregnated with native silver
from the footwall of No. 1 vein.
The management state they
have increased the crew to 18 men,
and are sacking two tons of ore
daily from two veins. That from
the galena vein, it is estimated,
will assay about $200 per ton,
while the other will go about $300
though it could be sorted to run
much higher.
The only samples to approach
those from the Silverado were in

Nickel Mine at Sudbury
The Worthington mine of the
Mond Nickle Company, 25 miles
from Sudbury recently collapsed
leaving a yawning cavity in the
earth's surface more than four
hundred square feet in area, engulfing the power plant and several hundred yards of Canadian
Pacific Railway track.
A house in which was a miner
and his wife and ohild tumbled
down the cavity forty feet but the
people were not injured.
The district rocked to a series
of vibrations which were aocompanied by a terrific grinding as the
earth gave way.
The property loss is not great as
the mine was to be abandoned soon.
The miners working below ground
had sufficient warning to enable
them to get out with the result
that no lives were lost.

THE rapidly increasing popularity of personally conducted tours has led passenger
traffic officials of the Canadian
National Railways to organize an
educational and historical tour to
Great Britain, Holland, Belgium,
Switzerland and France. For the
past four years this company has
conducted a summer tour from
Winnipeg and other western .cities
to the Pacific coast via Prince Bupert, the trip being made by special
train with stop-overs arranged at
•II points of interest en route. With
an especial appeal to teachers and
other professional men and women,
this tour has met with increased
success year after year and numerous requests have been made to the
company to arrange similar tours
through  other district*.     Every
year more and more of the travelling public are realizing that the
way to get the most out of their
trips is to take advantage of these
personally conducted specials.
Canadian National passenger officials, therefore, have been busy
for some months arranging a 43-
day personally conducted tour to
Europe, to be operated try that
company in connection with the
Cunard, Anchor-Donaldson hne.
Special effort has been made to
keep the cost as low as possible
without lowering the standard of
travel. Western Canadian passengers for this tour will leave Winnipeg on July 7 in special ears on
the Continental limited to join the
balance of the party at Montreal,
whence they wul sail on the SA
Athetfa, My 0.   The return trip
will be made from Liverpool on the
S.S. Aurania, sailing August 13.

New and Greater Era
of Conservatism Says
J. C. Brady
J. C. Brady, M. P. for Skeena,
likens the success of the big National
Conservative convention in Winnipeg to the brilliant, sunshiny weath
er that blessed the hub of the prair
ies during the days the great gathering was on. Winnipeg had
stormy weather just before the con
vention and the convention had
something of a storm duting its
early hours but weather and convention alike, before the end, both
cleared up and the atmosphere pre
vailing was both congenial and
fortuitous. "It was a wonderful
success and the trip was a memorable one for," declared Mr.  Brady

who returned recently from Winnipeg-
One of the all important matters
of the convention was the selection
of the leader and in that Mr. Brady
is well pleased. A new and greater
era of Conservativism than Canada
has ever known is in the homing he
asserts. Under the leadership of
Hon. R. B. Bennett the party will
march forward, he says, resolutely
imbued for the scaling   of greater

heights. Frank if somewhat heated
discussions only went to cement the
unanimity of Conservatism, Mr.
Brady declares.
Nor was Prince Rupert forgotten
in the organization of the big convention. J. A. Kirkpatrick, local
business man, was appointed to the
party's organization committee for
British Columbia of which the
other member is Keith C. McGowan
of New Westminster.
The Convention, which included
1600 delegates from all parts of
Canada, was a remarkable and inspiring spectacle states Mr. Brady
The delegates from the various
provinces were imbued, the local
member says, with the one thought,
namely, that if Canada was to forge
ahead, there must be unity of purpose and unity of co-operation in
the matter of policies for the Dominion.
A striking feature of the convention was that the old historic province of Quebec sent the largest
number of delegates of any province—441.
