Predicted Last Chance
Will Make a Big
The Last Chance property, situated in the Upper Kitsault country
is described by all those who have
visited it this year as having the
earmarks of a mine, and predictions are plentiful that it will be
taken over and developed before
very long.
The ore body is traceable on the
suiface for a distance of 1000 feet,
and has a north-east and south-west
strike. It has been stripped on the
surface for a distance of 300 feet,
and has an average width of 15 feet.
Two open cuts have been driven
across the ledge, and the average
values taken from across one cut
gives $18.00 per ton. These values
are in silver and gold, the copper
values not being ascertained. The
upper cut was sampled this year
but information as to values are
not yet obtainable. The width of
the ledge at this point is 25 feet,
and the ore is of a higher grade.
A tunnel has been commenced,
and has been driven a distance of
120 feet. Another 115 for 120 feet
is necessary before ore will be encountered, and when this is done a
depth of 250 feet will be obtained.
The Last Chance is owned by A.
McPhail and P. Morley. It is located at an elevation of 2600 ft. and
joins the Moose and Climax, both
of which have developed promising
ore showings.
It is the general opinion that this
section will shortly receive its well
; merited attention from mining companies.
Toric Mill Closed For
The fifty-ton concentrating mill
at the Toric Mine which has been
under construction during the summer was started up and closed down
during the week-end. A. C. H.

Logging Operations
Logging operations, which have
been conducted on the Kitsault Flats
at Alice Arm during the past five
years was brought to a close this
week, when the last of the logs
were dumped into the water by F.
L. Housley. The railway tracks
are being taken up and logging in
Alice Arm will shortly be brought
to a final close. There are still
some good stands of timber in the
district but not enough in one place
to make profitable logging at present prices.
Chamber of Mines Receive
$50.00 Cheque
The Alice Arm branch of the
British Columbia Chamber of Mines
was the recipient of a cheque for
$50.00 recently from the New
Westminster Fair. This cheque
was for obtaining third prize for the
best district exhibit of ore in British
Columbia. The winning of this
prize reflects great credit on the
mineral resources of Alice Arm,
especially when it is considered that
a great deal more activity prevail^
in many districts than here, thus
affording a greater opportunity of
gathering samples.
Sale of Work November 9th.
The Woman's Auxiliary and
Guild of the Christ Church will
hold its fall sale of work consisting of useful and ornamental articles. Home Cooking, plants,
afternoon tea, etc. in the Elks'

Silver  Cord   Will   Develop
Throughout Winter
W. G. McMorris, president of the
Kitsault-Eagle Silver Mines Ltd.
left on Monday for Vancouver. He
spent a week here during which
time he examined the Eagle and
Silver Cord and made arrangements
for the development of the latter
throughout the coming winter.
Supplies have been packed from
Alice Arm by the Alice Arm
Freighting Co. throughout the week
and everything is now in readiness
for a season's work,
Quite a number of residents left
on Wednesday to spend the winter
in the south. The biggest proportion were from the logging camp of
F. L. Housley, and the Toric mine.
More Ore Veins Discovered on the LaRose
Haystack mountain on which is
situated the LaRose mine, will be the
scene of big operations, is the opinion of J. Calvin who recently returned from that locality, after further
prospecting and development work
there on claims which he is interested.
During this fall he has discovered,
two more ore veins on the LaRose
Extension. They parallel the LaRose
vein at a lower elevation, and are in
the same zone. They have been
traced for an entire claim length,
and values in argentite silver were
obtained from one vein.
In addition to the ore vein already
developed on the LaRose other veins
at a lower elevation are known to
exist. These veins and the LaRose
Extension can all be worked from
one tunnel driven at a lower elevation, and this will undoubtedly be
done when next operated.
There are four properties on Haystack mountain that are known to
contain high grade ore, and are:
LaRose, Speculator, Bunker Hill
and Stormer.
The Stormer was also further
prospected this year by J. Calvin,
and he was successful in tracing the
No. 2 ledge a distance of 1000 feet
on the surface. Two open cuts
have disclosed high grade ore, whose
chief values are in silver, copper
and gold.
Tunnel on Keystone is
Being Pushed
The main development tunnel at
the Keystone is now in 645 feet and
is being driven at the rate of four
feet per day with two shifts.
The ore vein has been located
carrying bunches of high grade
zinc and galena ore. It is expected'
that another 35 feet will have to be
driven before the main ore body is
encountered. If the vein dips into
the hill it will be necessary to drive
still further.
Mr. Rowland King, who is in
charge of operations states that
everything is progressing satisfactorily at the mine.
Three Alice Arm Mines to
Operate This Winter
Three mines will be operated at
Alice Arm during the coming winter, namely the Silver Cord, Esperanza and Wolf. It was thought
that the Toric would be included in
the list this year, but the management decided to close down for the
winter, but will commence operations again next summer. Another
season of development work will
undoubtedly place the Keystone also
on the year-round operators list. ALICE  ARM  AND  ANYOX   HERALD,   Saturday, i October   29 1927

Canada's Smaller Wool Crop
Affords Food For Thought

farms in the British hies support 24,000,000 shorn
sheep, while the whole Dominion of Canada supports but 2,000,000, one twelfth as many. Yet during
the fiscal year ended March, 1924, woollen and knitting mills imported into Canada some 19,375,925
pounds of raw wool.
In Canada, in 1922, according to the Census of
Industry figures we hod 277 woollen and knitting
mills, which employed some 22,000 workers. Yet in
1922, countries abroad sent into Canada $38,000,000
worth of woollen and knitted goods,, and ln 1923,
$41,000,000 worth, representing employment for some
17,000 to 20,000 workers. Although during the past
year the wool and knitting industries have expanded
to some extent and, particularly in, the Eastern
Townships of. Quebec, have new mills opened up, it
is seen that only about half of the woollen goods sold
in this country could have been produced here. Raw
wool, grown in Canada, comprises but a small fraction of that which is used by the mills that are operating in the Dominion.
There is not enough wool grown to supply the
demand of the world. Japan and China, the staple
clothing and bedding materials for which countries
were formerly silk sod cotton, are rapidly becoming
great wool consuming countries, imports to Japan
•lone having jumped 700 per cent in ten years.
Thus it is seen that the Canadian wool grower
has not only a growing domestic market, but an ever
increasing foreign market for his clips, yet sheep
are rarely given due consideration by Canadian
farmers even though they have been dubbed "mortgage lifters" in the West
Col. Robt. HcEwen of London, Ont», president of
the Canadian Co-operative Wool Growers' Association, who won the championship for a car-load lot of
Canadian weather Iambs, "Southdowns," at the
Chicago International Show, has said, "taking Canada as a whole it has been proved that climatic con-
•titions ue favorable to sheep raising.  No devastat
ing disease, has visited our flocks. Yet today we
find ourselves up against the serious economic condition of consuming more wool than we produce, and
for a comparatively new and fertile country like
Canada to have reached; the stage of deficient supply for such an essential as clothing should sorely
demand the serious consideration of us all."
But although wool growing as an industry in
Canada does not come up to what might be expected
of it, those who are engaged in it are highly and effectively organized as regards marketing. In 1914
those in charge of the Dominion Live Stock Branch,
Ottawa, began to urge that sheepmen be more careful in putting up their fleeces and that they stop
selling at any old price which might be offered
locally. Following their efforts various sheep breeders and wool growers' associations throughout Canada
began to collect wool from their members, this wool
being graded in turn by expert graders supplied by
the Dominion Government and being sold on the
graded basis. As more and more local associations
were formed, it was felt that all should be affiliated
under one central selling agency with the result that
in 1918 the Canadian Co-operative Wool Growers
Limited was formed with headquarters in Toronto.
This is a commodity marketing organization handling wool only, having about 2,500 shareholders and
approximately 12,000 shippers of wool throughout the
Dominion. Individual clips are collected at various
points for shipment in car-load lots to tbe central
warehouse at Weston, Ont.. for grading and tale.
At the present time this organization, which
operates from coast to coast, is handling from a quarter to one third of the Canadian clip reaching the
open market Its influence is being extended more
and more each season as will be noted from the fact
that in Ontario alone the number of shippers has increased from 3,200 in 1922, to 4,000 in 1924 The
various grades of wool are sold to equal advantage hi
Canadian, American and English markets, and it is
perhaps noteworthy that during the past two yean
approximately three-quarters of a million pounds ef
Canadian graded wools have found a market with
English mill*.

In Vancouver Last
The death occurred last Saturday at the residence of his daughter, 1260 Bidwell street Vancouver,
of Joseph O. Trethewey, well
known figure in mining and lumbering circles of British Columbia.
He was in his 69th year.
The deceased was a native of
Ontario. He became interested in
mining in this province over thirty
years ago, and about 1895 succes-
fully operated the Providence
mine at Harrison Lake. Following this'venture he went to Cobalt
at the beginning of the sensational
strikes in that distriot.
At Cobalt he became interested
in the fifth discovery claim, which
yielded handsome returns. With
his brother W. G. Trethewey, deceased about a year ago, he became
known as one of the most successful operators in the district.
About eighteen years ago he returned to the coast, becoming
interested in mining and timber
enterprises. For many years he
has been president of the Abbotsford Lumber Company. Until a
few years ago he operated a big
ranch in the Cariboo. In addition
he held a number of timber interests in various parts of the province.
He was especially well known in
the Alice Arm district, where for
three years he superintended logging on a large part of the Kitsault
River flats.   He also became inter
ested in mining in the Alice Arm
district. He owned the Bunker
Hill group and a half interest in
the Speculator No 2, his brother
Sam holding the other half interest
He also owned a half interest in
the La Rose Extension Claim, J.
Calvin of Alice Arm holding the
other half.
. Interment took place in the
family plot at the Mountain View
cemetery, Vancouver.
The late Mr. Trethewey was
well known in this locality. His
logging operations were of much
benefit to Alice Arm, and his many
friends are sorry to hear of his
He is survived by a widow and
several sons and daughters. His
son Edgar left Alice Arm a few
weeks ago.
Big Ore Specimen for South
The big specimen of high grade
ore from the Vanguard mine was
brought down on Saturday, and

Chamber of Mines. It is composed
of almost solid ore and taxed the
