Mining Industry of Alice
Arm Promises To
Expand
To what extent the mining industry of Alioe Arm will expand
this year is a question being asked
both by residents and those outside who are interested in the
camp. To our readers we say that
tbe present year promises to be a
good one. It is known that at
least one new company will enter
the field, and unless present plans
miscarry there will be several
others, while others will considerably enlarge their operations.
As stated above, the future is
full of promise, and the mining
industr j of the district may expand
much more than even the most
optimistic expect. It is, however,
too early at present to go into
details regarding new projeots,
but things are being done, the successful issue of which will spell
prosperity.
The Alice Arm district contains
too much ore developed both on
the surface and underground, for
mining to decline. It has been
conceded by responsible men that
it is one of the most highly mineralized districts of the province.
Suoh being the case, its progress
is assured, gradual at first perhaps,
but as soon as the tide sets this
way in earnest, it will assume
flood proportions in a short time.
Brilliant sunshine weather has
prevailed during the week, accompanied by frosty nights.
New Council Elected for
Community League
At the Annual Meeting of the
Anyox Community League held on
Monday evening, the follwing were
elected by acclamation to serve on
the Council for the coming year.

The Board of Directors before
closing their report would like to
thank the Medical and Nursing
staff for the fine manner in which
the medical and surgical service
was carried out during the year
just ended, and the Board feel that
with the co-operation of the Hospital staff in a sound and businesslike
administration for the ensuing year,
that an even greater reduction in
the  yearly deficit may be looked
The Board would like to extend
their thanks to the Ladies' Hospital
Auxiliary for their assistance in the
upkeep of the Hospital linen and
also for the many comforts furnished the patients during the past year.
Many comforts for the patients
were received by the Hospital from
the local Lodges and the Board
would like to thank them for their
kindness in making the patients'
stay in the Hospital more agreeable
by these donations.
The Board wishes to thank those
residents of Alice Arm who were
kind enough to send flowers and
garden produce to the Hospital during the past year.
Concerts organized by local talent
and put on at the Hospital for the
patients during the year were very
much appreciated. The various
associations and the Lodges of
Anyox, combined to present the
General Hospital with a very fine
model Orthophonic Victrola for the
use of the patients, and the Board
would like to take this occasion to
thank them for their kindness.
Yours very truly,
W.  R.  LINDSAY,
Chairman.
Stirring Sermon Given
On Earl Haig By
Rev. Clarke
In spite of the inclement weather
and the bad state of the roads, a
large congregation attended the
Memorial Service for the late Earl
Haig, recently held in the United
Church. The local branch of the
Canadian Legion, under whose
auspices the Service was held,
attended in a body. Members of
the I. O. D. E. also attended.
The service was conducted by
Comrade T. J. Kirkwood, President of the Legion. Comrade D.
R. Learoyd, Past-President and an
indefatigable worker in the ex-
soldier organizations, was ou the
platform and read the 23rd. psalm.
In memory of Earl Haig and fallen
comrades the congregation stood
in silence while the "Dead March"
was played by Mr. Dresser.
Comrade Rev. C. D. Clarke took
as his text: "For what is your life?
It is even a vapour, that appeareth
for a little time and then vanisheth
away," and spoke of the swift
passing of life. Life is a great
river running through the ages;
we joined it in the rivulet of our
generation and are carried along
by all the benefits of past achievements. This was illustrated by
the flag and the bible, behind
which men and women gave their
best of soul, mind and body that
life might be enriched. Iu view of
what we reoeive when coming into
life, we are indebted to life and
our duty is to give. "Life is not a
goblet to be drained, but a measure
to be filled."
The one great test of all life is
usefulness, and that'is the test to
which Ood puts human beings, as
illustrated by parables of Jesus.
Those whom he condemned were
the people who did nothing'
As greatness is measured by usefulness, Earl Haig was a great
man. In tbe greatest crisis in the
Empire's history, Earl Haig. was
the one subject of the King with
the talents who proved most useful
in his office of Commander-in-Chief
That office required not only talents of military leadership, but
also character. Earl Haig had
both. What has endeared Earl
Haig to the world, apart from his
military leadership, was the attitude to old comrades and particularly to the common soldier. His
ideal for days of peace was usefulness, and in organizing and as
Grand President of the British
Empire Service League he rendered a unique service to ex-soldiers
and to the Empire,
From statements made by him
at different times, we learn that
Earl Haig, while a great soldier
leader, was uot imbued with military idealism. Whon Marshall
Foch was given supreme command
of the allied troops in France,
Earl Haig gave his cordial consent
thus exhibiting that extreme fine

Agitation is still being carried
on in certain quarters of the United
States to place Canada  on the
quoto list.     If this is   done   it
means that only 20,000 Canadians
will be allowed to cross the border
for permanent residence each year.
In the year ending June 30th. last.
81,000 people left this country for
the U. S. A.    If Washington decides   to   place   Canada on the
quota list,   she will  undoubtedly
bestow on us the greatest favor
possible, for it would mean the
keeping home of a large portion of
our best manhood.    There are, at
the present time more opportunities
in Canada than the United States,
The latter's resources have reached
the peak of their development and
some are on the decline, especially
lumbering and papermaking.   Also
the   United   States   have settled
their agricultural lands, and no such
large tracts of virgin land as can
be found in Canada is available
for settlement.   In mining, Canada
is rapidly forging ahead,  and the
statement has been  made  by responsible men that in fifteen years
our mineral production  will equal
our southern neighbors.    In paper
making we have far outstripped
them and the same will unquestionably happen   in    the    mining
industry.   The coming years are
Canada's.   During that time there
will be ample opportunities   for
every Canadian within  his  own
borders.   We have a vast territory richly endowed with resources
and capable of supporting an enormous population.   If the  United
States wishes to place us  on the
quota   list   with   European   and
Asiactic countries, why,  let them
go unterruptedly ahead.
Little self-denials, little honesties, little passing words of sympathy, little nameless acts of kindiless,
little silent victories over favorite
temptation—these are the silent
threads of gold which, when woven
together, gleam out so brightly in
the pattern of life that God
approves.
Stirring Sermon Given
On Earl Haig By
Rev. Clarke

trait—the grace to allow  another
to assume leadership and still continue to serve.
Addressing an assembly of
Scottish ministers, Earl Haig
issued a challenge to the churches
in these words: "It is the business
of tlie churches to make my business impossible."
The Gospel of Christ is the
world's only hope, the sole promise
of world peace."
It can never be said that Earl
Haig was an "ex-service" man.
His service did not cease when
peace was signed, but carried on
to the grave. In advocating the
British Empire Service League it
was with the idea that ex-soldiers
might in the best way continue
their service to the Empire in the
days of peace.
The service closed with the
sounding of the "Last Post" by
Comrade J. Thomson and the
singing of the National Anthem.

Premier MacLean stated that he
believed the principle of the ballot
to be sound, but there had been
opposition expressed to it from
various sources and he intended to
have the provincial election

The Mineral Province of Western Canada
Has produced Minerals as follows: Placer Gold, $78,018,548; Lode Gold, $126,972,318; Silver, $80.-
787.003; Lead, $106,976,442; Copper, $209,967,068; Zinc, $50,512,557; Coal and Coke, $284,699,133;
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
io 1895, inclus-
for five yearp-
,     - years, 1916-1920, $189,922,725;
for five years, 1921-1925, $214,726,650; for 1926, $67,188,842.
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 Reports 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 eaoh of the six mineral Survey
Districts are published separately, and are available on application. Reports of the Geological
Survey of Canada, Winch Building, Vancouver, are recommended as valuable sources of inform "tion.

1828 by canoe.       S. David Thompson, one of the artists.
One of the first subjects concerning
Canadian events of late that the
Right Hon. Stanley Baldwin touched
on after his arrival in Canada recently was the Canadian Folk song and
Handicraft Festival held at the
Chateau Frontenac last May. Premier Baldwin observed that such
a Festival was invaluable in preserving and reviving the old-time customs,
songs and handicrafts, indigenous to
Canadian life and particularly the
province of Quebec. (On the heels
of this musical success comes the
announcement that a Scottish Gathering and Song Festival is about to
take place at Banff,, September 3 to
5. Scottish communities are looking
forward with keen interest to the
coming festival to which the Prince
of Wales has given his patronage.
Scots in Canada played a memorable part in the development of the
country, their names having prominence in many historic engineering,
fur trading and exploration enterprises—such men as Fraser, Mackenzie, Thompson and many others
in the past generations who have
penetrated the mountains of the
west. Here in these same mountains,
unrivalled in the world for beauty,
the Scottish Gathering and Festival
will be held. Activities will centre
around the Lanff Springs Hotel
>>at stands on the side of Sulphur I
mountain commanding a "million
dollar" view of the Bow Valley.
The historic character of the
Scot has been carried down from
generation to generation in his music.
The lyrics and ballads that are sung
with never-tiring enthusiasm will
be heard to advantage at the coming
festival.
The singers themselves will be
good Scots of no mean artistry. J.
Campbell Mclnnes is a Highlander,
now settled in Toronto, who is a
recognized master in the interpretation of the old ballad. His rendering of "The Twa Sisters of Binorie"
is one of the great things in the
history of song. Jeanne Dusseau,
although her name is French by
marriage, won her flrst success on
the concert stage under her maiden
name of Ruth Thorn and hails
originally from North-east Scotland.
Davidson Thomson first saw the
light in Perth and now directs the
famous Grace Church Choir in
Winnipeg, triumphant shield-winner
at many Western Festivals. He
himself has shone as a star at many
Festivals in the United States as
well as Canada. Ruth Matheson
is a young contralto of Winnipeg
who is winning recognition far outside her native city for her interpretation of Scottish songs. She
comes of the stock of the Kildonan
settlers.   Norman    Cameron   is   n
Hebridean who sings the Gaelic
with a Gaelic tenor—none sweeter.
And with him are Hebridean folk-
singers who sing with indescribable
charm the exquisite songs of those
Western Islands. The Canadian Pacific Celgary Male Voice Choir will
give choral renderings of well-known
Scotch songs.
With the dances—the Highland
Fling — the Seann Truibhas — the.
Sword Dance — the Reel — and
with Marches goes of course the
music of the bagpipes, not forgetting
the plobreacha, otherwise spelt as
pibroch, of which not so many are
masters. It is to the Highland
Regiments that we owe the chiel
credit of keeping alive thiB stirring
music, the sound of which stirs the
blood as no other music can. By courtesy of the Canadian Ministerof Militia
each of the seventeen Highland Regiments in Canada will have the opportunity of being represented by its best
regimental piper in an endeavor
to secure a beautiful trophy offered
by E. W. Beatty, Chairman and
President of the Canadian Pacific
Railway, through whose interest
und generosity the organization of
this Highland Gathering' at Banff
has been made possible.
Scottish games and contest! of
al! kinds will be a feature of tit*
three-day  Catherine.

ARRIVAL in Western Canada of
the new Canadian National
Railways oil-electric car on an endurance run from Montreal to
Vancouver under its own power,
and its subsequent return to Edmonton where it was placed in
service on the Edmonton-Vermilion
run, replacing a mixed train service, has created much interest
among railway men and the travelling public generally.     The new
car, shown above, carries approximately 60 passengers, in addition
to baggage and express, and made
a record run to Vanoouver. Other
cars of similar type, and also of an
articulated type, carrying 120 passengers, have been placed in service in Eastern Canada, where
they are giving excellent service
at reduced operating cost. More
cars are now being built and others
are to be sent to the wart for
branch-line service. The ear operates on electricity, generated by
a fuel oil engine of airplane type,
and the working out of this method
of traction by Canadian National
engineers gives promise of great
reduction In fuel and operating
costs. Each of these cars is capable of handling a trailer what
necessary.
