The Valentine   Dance
Committee's Success
Applauded
In presenting a most gratifying
report of the P. T. A. Valentine
Masquerade, Miss Hestyr Richards,
Convenor, referred in terms of
praise and thankfulness to her immediate assistants, Mrs. Kirk, Mr.
Campbell and Mr. Thorsteinsson.
Gracious acknowledgement was
also made to Mrs. Cutler, Mrs.
Patrick and Miss Hamilton for
their co-operation on the Prize
Committee; to Mr. F. M. Kelley
and Mr. Fordyce Clark for publicity
and to those members of the Association and their friends who worked with the sub-convenors. Upon
the suggestion of the Convenor the
association enthusiastically endorsed
the sending of letters of appreciation to the donors of prizes, who
were: Messrs. Ashwell. Cowdell,
Johnson, Baillie, Learoyd, Miller,
Sinclair, Todd and J. Wilson. The
same tribute was paid to the judges:
Mesdames Cavers, Maxwell, McRae
and Peterson; and Messrs. Cavers,
Hutchinson, Todd and Whitehead;
to the door-keepers, Messrs Patrick
and J. Wilson, and to the Master
of Ceremonies, Mr. C. 0. Cutler.
Estimating a profit of about one
hundred and thirty dollars, Miss
Richards indicated that Mr, McGusty had recommended to the
government that tax exemption be
granted as the profits are to be
applied directly to the benefit of the
khool children.
' In according a hearty vote of
thanks to the Convenor and her
assistants for their work, several
members referred in congratulatory
terms to the outstanding success of
the undertaking from a variety of
aspects.
North Star Development
Very Encouraging
Development work, which was
started late last fall on the North
Star aud continued throughout
the winter, has been very satisfactory, and considerable ore has
already been shown up.
Tho new tunnel commenced last
fall and which is 100 feet lower
elevation than the old workings,
has been driven a distance of 80
feet. An ore vein, which showed
strong in the bottom of the tunnel
was encountered and drifted on for
40 feet, the hanging wall being
followed. A crosscut, 30 feet in
length was also driven, 24 feet of
which was in vein matter, which
was somewhat broken but mineralized.
Development work will now be
concentrated in the old workings,
known as the No. 2 tunnel. The
winze, which was started there
will be deepened, so that the exact
dip of the ore body may be ascertained. When this has been done
the No. 3 tunnel will be extended
to a distance of 220 feet in order to
strike0 tne'ore at greater depth.
The first round of holes drilled
in the winze in No. 2 tunnel disclosed considerable ore, consisting
of high grade native and- argentite
silver.

We have received this week a full
report of the Mertjbrial Service for
the late Earl Hsfejg. Unfortunately, owing to lack'^f space and late
arrival of copy it! is necessary to
hold it over until our next issue.
Mrs. C. M. Smith returned on

O. Evindson and Gus. Pearson
arrived in town on Saturday from
the North Star, and during the
early part of the week they took
advantage of the hard snow to
sleigh in some supplies and powder.
A.Davidson arrived down from
the Wildcat during the week for
more supplies.
A. MoQuire, who is in charge of
operations at the Silver Cord was
a visitor in town during the week.
Samples of ore taken from the
strike at the Esperanza, were
brought to town during the week.
The ore is composed of rich argentite and ruby silver and is among
the best ore, if not the best, that
has yet been mined.
The clear frosty weather of the
past week has made a hard crust
on the snow and travelling is made
easy, especially in the woods.

his helpers produced a very attractive scheme of decoration for the
Elks' Hall and the Valentine motif
was extended to the Dugout, where
Mrs. Kirk and her assistants provided a delightful supper for almost
two hundred guests.

Operation Toric 50-ton
Mill Promised By
Next June
The following article relative to
the Toric Mine, was published in
the New York Engineering and
Mining Journal on January 14th.
It is an interview given by A. C.
H. Gerhardi, general manager for
the Toric Mines Co. Ltd.
According to the general manager the mill will be handling 2,700
tons of ore per month by next
June, and the illuminating information is also given that the
coarse gold in the ore will be removed by amalgamation.
The article, which was accompanied by an illustration, is as
follows:
"Operations at the Toric Mine,
situated 17 miles above Alice Arm
in British Columbia, have been
discontinued, except for a little
development by a small winter
force, to await the coming of
spring, when tho new mill is to be
started. According to A. C. H.
Gerhardi, general manager for
Toric Mines Conipany Ltd., the
operating company, the mill should
be handling about 2,700 tons of
silver-gold ore per month by next
June. The average value of the
mill ore is said to" be $12 per ton,"
with the silver predominating.
Ore reserves are estimated in the
last annual report at 610,000 tons,
of whioh 400,000 tons is reasonably assured.
The mill, shown in the accompanying illustration, is equipped
with a jaw crusher, a set of 30- by
14in. rolls, a Hardinge ball mill,
an amalgamator, and Wilfley
tables. Four Mcintosh flotation
cells are to be installed as soon as
roads can be broken in the spring.
Tests on the ore made by the Minerals Separation Company and the
Dominion Department of Mines
show that after the coarse gold has
been removed by amalgamation,
and the coarse silver by tabling on
Wilfleys, an excellent tailing can
be made by flotation. The silver
in the ore occurs chiefly as "native"
and in argentite, and the gold is
free. About 3 per cent of lead is
also contained, and the saving of
this is a factor in the decision to
use concentration rather than a
combination of amalgamation and
cyaniding. A ten-day trial run of
the plant last fall showed that the
equipment was in good condition.
Mr. Gerhardi is now on his way
to London, where he will place
orders for a second unit of the
Diesel-electric plant that supplies
power for the mill. This will consist of a 120-hp. engine and a
75kw. generator.
CARD   OF   THANKS
Mr. and Mrs. O. Evindson wish

The extensive tax reductions
recently made by the Federal and
also the Provincial Government is
a step in the right direction.
Lower taxes means an expansion
of industry in all lines. Encourag-
ment will be given to British and
foreign capital to enter the country
and it will also be instrumental in
releasing a large portion of the
money held by the banks and
trust companies for the purpose of
developing the resources of the
country. History has shown that
the lowest taxed countries are the
most prosperous, more money is
in circulation and everyone gets a
share. There is a lot more work
to be done in regard to tax reductions, but an honest effort is
being made, and let us hope that
it will be continued.
In regard to the acquisition of
the Alaskan "Panhandle" by Canada, American government officials
are quoted as saying: What we
have we'll hold." This was to be
expected. No one thought for
one minute that they would hand
it over without considerable bargaining. It will probably take a
few years before the question is
settled. The U. S. A. very often
seek favors from Canada, and if
they expect them to be granted
they must be ready to reciporate.
The death of over 40 miners from
fire in the Hollinger mine is an
unusual occurrence for a quartz
mine, and evidently some one is to
blame. At meetings held by the
miners the company has been
blamed and severely condemned.
If the company is at fault, and no
care was taken for the miners'
safety, then the officials should receive the full penalty of the law.
In order to show increased profits
it is the policy of some companies
to eliminate all "Safety First"
methods. "To hell with a few
lives" is their motto, "as long as
large profits are being made."
Such a policy does better work for
Communism than a thousand paid
speakers could do.
True politeness is perfect ease
and freedom. It simply consists
in treating others just as you love
to be treated yourself.
Taxes Will be Reduced
By Government for
Coming Year
Taxes will be cut by $550,000
spread over virtually all classes of
taxpayers, Premier McLean announced in his budget speech
recently.
All income taxes will be cut ten
per cent.
A discount of ten per cent, will
be allowed on the turnover tax for
payment before the date of delinquency.
The present turnover tax of one
half of one per cent on the first
$4000.00 of income earned by professional men, agents or brokers,
will be reduced to one quarter of
one per cent—a reduction of fifty
per cent.
To assist coal mining, the present
tax of four per oent. per acre on
class B lands containing ooal, but
not thoroughly developed, will be
reduced to two per cent, or one
half of the present rate.
All payments out. of superannuation funds will be exempted entirely from income tax.
Further allowances will be made
for contributions to employees'
superannuation funds.
Expenditures for the coming
year are estimated to total $20,821,
360 with revenue of $20,830,296,
leaving an estimated surplus of
$8,935.
The estimated expenditures include provision for statutory salary
increases for all civil servants and
other salary adjustments in the
civil service and expenditures of
$400,000 in old age pensions during
the next fiscal year. Other major
increases total 3945,000.
The budget also provides for a
loan bill of $4,600,000 for highways, bridges, public buildings and
university lands development.

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, 18961900, $57,607,967; for five years, 1901-1905, $96,507,968; for five yearp

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 Province has
been even prospected; 200,000 square miles of unexplored mineral bearing land are open for prospecting,
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 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 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 oovering 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 information.

Flowers are among the assets ot the Canadian Pacific
Railway. It Is the policy of the Company to
establish permanent flower gardens at every station
along the long line of track stretched across the continent.
In the very early days of the railroad the pioneers
were too busy attending to the task of opening up new
roads to give much attention to flowers, yet even back
in the early days one of the C. P. R. employees produced a few varieties of flower seeds 4n his own plot
and distributed them amongst his friends at some of
the stations with the object of starting flower gardens
along the line. This took place over 30 years ago,
and to-day the Company spends a considerable amount
producing and distributing seeds and shrubs of all
kind's to station agents along the lines. The Company
maintains a floral department with (headquarters al
the Windsor Street Station ln Montreal.
In carrying out this work a great number of trees,
seeds and perennial plants are used annually. Suitable trees such as ash, elm and maple, are supplied,
and shrubbery suoh as honey-suckle, lilac, barberra,
elder, splrea, welgelfa and many other varieties together with a long list of toed flowers. Vines are also
supplied to cover .buildings and fences surrounding
stations. For this purpose Virginia creepers and
Japanese ivy are considered test.
During the past thirty years the encouraging Influ
ence of the C. P. R. gardens has materially assisted in
the inauguration of floral societies all over the country, many of the officials of the Company being members of these societies. It is pleasing to remember
that the work in connection -with the gardens is credited directly to the agents and employees of the station, for it is carried out mostly in their own time,
through their enthusiasm in beautifying the stations
of which they are in charge. The C. P. R. recognizes
this effort and much interest is aroused by tlie annual
competitions on both eastern and western lines of the
Company for the finest station gardens. Extensive
layouts do not enter into the contest but the gardens
that have shown the most Improvement during the
year are the ones that carry off the honors. Representatives from the floral department tour the lines
each year, sizing up the gardens and deciding the
winner. Substantial money prizes are awarded each
year.
The floral department of the Canadian Pacific is
constantly ln touch with horticultural institutions, Including agricultural colleges and societies, so that bo
stone is left unturned to keep up to the very latest
standard.

Settlers Rushing Peace
River Country
Reports from the Dominion Government Lands Agents in the Peace
River District of Alberta indicate a
considerable influx of settlers during
the past summer, many of them
being from the United States. The
success of Herman Trelle, of Wembley, Peace River District, who
won the world's championship for
wheat and oats at the International
Grain and Hay Show, Chicago,
last year, and the expectation of
additional railway lines for the district have, it is believed, been
contributing factors in attracting
increased settlement.
The Dominion Lands Agent at
Grande Prairie, Alberta, has recorded 514 homestead entries and 26
soldier grants this season; and at
Peace River, 418 homesteads and
26 soldier grants have been recorded.

WESTERN CANADA'S FIRST HOME-MADE ENGINE
ANOTHER railroad milestone
of Western . Canada was
passed on April 20, when the
first engine ever constructed in
this part of the Dominion was
turned out of the Canadian National Railways Transcona Shops
at Winnipeg, where it was built.
Engine 2747 shown ahove was constructed entirely in the local shops,
the work being done in addition to
the regular output of repairs to
other engines. After the various
parts were made, the frames for
the locomotive were laid down on
March 11 and construction was
completed on April 19th, a total of
27 working days, the first run
being made to Winnipeg on the following day.
Number 2747 is classed as a 38%
engine, is capable of main and
branch line freight handling and
has suificient speed to run the
Transcontinental.   The weight of
the locomotive' and tender complete
is 193 tons. After trial runs, it will
be used on main line time freight
trains on the Alberta district of
the Canadian National, where the
best use can be made of this class
of locomotive and where' the fuel
saving devices with which it is
equipped will give the most economical results. Number 2748, which
is now in course of construction at
Transcona, will be ready for service i*s. Alberta in May.
