Much Business Disposed
Chamber of Mines
Meeting
The regular monthly meeting of
the Alice Ann branch of the British Columbia Chamber of Mines
was held at the School House on
Monday evening, President 0.
Evindson presiding.
The minutes of the previous
meeting were read by Secretary
A. 1). Yorke, and adopted by the
meeting.
Owing to tlie limited number of
members present iind.the fact that
tho meeting had not been fully
advertised as the annual general
meeting for the election of officers,
it was decided to postpone the election until the July meeting.
A copy of the letter relative to
the donation of a lot for the proposed new building, which was sent
to the Minister of Lands, was read
by the secretary and also a. reply to
the letter sent to H. F. Kergin.
A letter was also read from the
Anyox Community League, asking
co-operation of the local branch in
perfecting a display of thedistiict's
ores which would form a permanent exhibition at Anyox. It was
decided to co-operate by sending
samples whenever possible.
The report of the committee
appointed at the last meeting to
investigate cost etc. of anew building to serve as quarters for the
organization was read by 0. Evindson. A building 20 x 40 ft. was
recommended. One room 10 x 20
ft. in the front for display of ore
samples etc. and the balance of the
building to be used aa a meeting
hall. The approximate cost was
$688.00. All work to be done by
volunteer labor except the placing
of the foundation and the putting
in of the glass front.
Mr. G. W. Bruggy. who had
stated at the previous meeting that
his old store building could be used
by the organization for display
of ores and other purposes, stated
in answer to the Chairman that it
is still at the disposal of the organization.
Following a general discussion
regarding the new building, it was
deoided to appoint a committee to
gather all available data regarding
raising of finances etc. and to report at the next meeting. Those
appointed were: O. Evindson, A.
I). Yorke, M. Peterson. H. Fowler,
J. Fiva, E. Moss, with power to
add to their number.
In reply to a question regarding
ore samples being brought in for
display purposes at the Vancouver
Exhibition, the Chairman stated
that several fine samples had already been received. It was decided to appoint a committee for the
purpose of interviewing mining
property owners and impressing
upon them the desirability of their
bringing ore samples or leaving
them at some point to be picked up.
The committee are: J. Wells, F. D.
Rice, A. D. Yorke, W. B. Bower.
The seoretary was instructed to
wire the Atlin Board of Trade,
requesting them to send ore samples to the Vancouver exhibition so
that the North-Western District's
chance of winning the shield for
the beat district display would be
improved. If the shield is won
I this year it becomes the per-
I manent property of this district.
IThe football game on Monday
night resulted in a win for the
Beach, when they won from the
Concentrator 3-1.
Big Day at Anyox On
July 1st.
The Community League has arranged a big day for old and young
in honour of the national birthday.
A lengthy program of field sports
for children and grown ups has been
drawn up. Posters showing the
order and the nature of the events
are prominently displayed throughout the town. In addition there
will be football and baseball with
tlie Kincolith Indians competing.
The Council has decided that for
grown-ups a 25 cent ticket will
cover all admission charges. There
will be free ice cream forthe kiddies.
Besides that a refreshment stand
will probably be opened so that all
can buy something cool.
Keen Interest Taken Anyox
Ladder Tournament
Ladder for the men's singles
which has been posted for some
time now is provoking keen competition. Along the top rung are
Macintyre, Lee, and Brown, with
Cavers, McDougall, and Gordon
immediately beneath. Those below
are sternly contesting the various
places. In the mixed doubles ladder Miss Richards and Clark returned to the first rung after a 10-8
decision over Mrs. Fve and T. A.
Stewart to whom they had previously lost 9-10. . Next in order
come Vera Eve and Archie McDougall with Mr. and Mrs. Cutler right
on their heels.

Biggest Gold Strike
North's History
at Anyox
By far the richest ore strike
ever made in northern British
Columbia, was made during the
week near Anyox, when John MoCallum, Ralph Ingraham and a
Scandinavian named Eric staked
three claims adjoining the Bonanza
mine, after locating a vein of ore
carrying free gold.
Samples of ore brought to Alice
Ann yesterday evening caused
considerable excitement. It is a
quartz ore with pure gold showing
all over it. Nothing compared in
value has ever'been found in the
north, and very seldom anywhere
else. Those acquainted with this
class of ore state that it is of fabulous value.
The ore vein is from 2 to 6 feet
wide and has been traced on the
surface for a distance of 400 feet.
It is said to run into the Bonanza
ground, which is owned by the
Granby Co. and is being put into
shape by them for the shipping- of
its copper ores to their mill at
Anyox.
The above details were obtained
just as the Herald was going to
press. Further particulars will be
published next week.

Anyox P. T. A. Farewell
Entertainment
On Monday night in the New
School the Anyox P. T. A. entertained at the annual farewell social.
It was an entirely entertaining
program, the evening being given
over to games and music, followed
by refreshments. In the "observation test" contest, first prize for
the ladies was won by Miss Hestyr
Richards who received a handsome
box of Stationery. The gentlemen's
prize, an attractive bridge smoking-
set, was awarded to Mr. Fordyce-
Clark. A novelty of the program
was the extensive repertoire of Mr.
Aylwood who evoked great applause for his cockney imitations.
Mr. F. Dresser contributed a pleasing piano solo and Mrs. Pinckney
and Messrs. Anderson and Roberts
delighted the audience with vocal
numbers to which Mrs. Kent played
the accompaniments. Mrs. McMaster was in charge of the committee which served delicious refreshments at the close of the
evening. The overflow of ice cream
was gratefully received in various
quarters in town.
C. N. R. Boat on Friday
Last week an error crept into our
news columns when we stated that
the C. N. R. steamship would arrive
at Anyox on Thursday at 10.30 p.m.
It should have read Friday. We
did our utmost to correct the error
which was noticed as soon as the
paper was off the press, and we
hope no one was greatly inconvenienced. Judging from numerous
enquiries received by the local Post
Office and the Steamship office at
Anyox there is no question about
the Herald not being widely  read.
Owing to it being necessary to
publish the Herald on Friday this
week, and also that we have had a
considerable amount of job printing to handle it was found that we
could not print six pages of the
Herald this week, and get everything out on time. We were
therefore forced to revert to four
pages for this week.

Canada's total trade in 1927
amounted to $2,325,899,934, as
compared with $2,292,281,179 iu
1926, an increase of $33,618,755.
There are few unmixed blessings. The sudden coming of
warm dry weather has been greeted
almost with cheers after a late
rainy spring. Thousands who have
been forced through bad weather
to forego camping trips are now
rushing into the woods each weekend determined to get their fill of
enjoyment in the woods.
Sudden warm weather too has
brought the feeling of relaxation
and delight in the luxury of sheer
idleness durtng week-ends out of
doors.   This is all very fine indeed.
But this blessing of fine weather
is not unmixed with potential
trouble. Foresters state that even
two successive days of warm dry
weather, plus an acute condition of
low humidity is sufficient to cause
"fire weather". It seems almost
impossible lo the layman that the
forests could be highly inflammabl
so soon after heavy rains, yet fires
are already being reported. The
time has arrived to put into practise
all we have learned about the fire
menace.

Copper with Iron Resist Rust
It has been known for sometime
that a few tenths of one per cent
copper alloyed with well-made iron
greatly increases its power to resist
corrosion. Why copper exerts this
beneficial effect is obscure as is also
the reason that it promotes the
formation of haemoglobin. Lately
the addition of less than one-tenth
of 1 per cent, molybdenum to iron
containing about .4 per cent, copper has been found to greatly increase the anti-rusting qualities.

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, 1896-1900, $57,607,967; for five years, 1901-1905, $96,507,968; for five yeare-

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 dono
are described in some one of the Annual Reports of the Minister of Mines. Those considering
mining investments should refer to such reports. They are available without oharge on application
to the Department of Mines, Victoria, B. G Keports covering each of the six mineral Survey

Canada Should Manufacture
Own Metals
Commenting on the fact that
within the next decade Canada will
rank among the first tfhree non-
ferrous metal producing countries
ofthe world, the "Canadian Mining
Journal" in a recent issue pertinently observes that when we attain
to this position of eminence in respect of metalliferous output we
should, under ideal conditions, rank
no less high in the production of
the manufacture of these metals,
but concludes that unfortunately
the likelihood of such a desiratum
is extremely remote.
Labor Unions Withdraw from
Central Body
Organized labor in Vancouver
and New Westminster district representing 61 local unions and 1(1,-
000 men have withdrawn from
affiliation with the Canadian Labor
Party. Tbe step was taken by a
large majority at a meeting of the
Trades and Labor Council and was
due to the insistance of the Canadian Labor party that' the plank
demanding enfranchisement of
Orientals be left in the C. L. P.
platform.
"What is your husband's average
income?" asked the caller.
"About 1 a.m.,"' replied Mrs.
Wise.

ur leading Industry
WHEN 38c. of every dollar paid in industrial Wages and salaries in
British Columbia comes from lumbering, her ten-year production
increase of 138.7 per cent, is vitally important to everyone.
Thirty per cent, of our Province's entire industrial production of 251 million dollars in
1926 was contributed by lumbering and its
allied industries. British Columbia now ranks
third in the Dominion in industrial importance,
and forest products dominate.
Involved in British Columbia's lumbering
industry is capital of more than 100 million
dollars . . . 20,000 people are employed ... 330
mills operated.
Without question this gigantic business is
destined to continue at the same pace.
Climate, soil and drainage have produced our
vast forests of soft woods ... the greatest in the
world! One-third of the British Empire's entire
timber supply is in British Columbia. Today,
the demand for soft woods is four times that of
hard woods . . . and with the last great stand
of soft woods located in our Province, continued
progress and prosperity are certain.
Great as our timber stands are, our government realizes the necessity of safeguarding the
future of this vast industry and is devoting
much time, study and thought to the question
of scientific reforestration, fire prevention and
conservation.
Lumbering brought 84 million dollars to
British Columbia in 1926 (the value of the cut
that year), an increase of 49 million dollars over
J916. Every year more than 30 million dollars
worth of supplies are purchased to enable this
great industry to carry on.
Foreign markets have been sought . . . and
captured. Water borne export of Jumber has
enjoyed exceptional growth. Ships'laden with
