Ore Traced  On The
Mastodon For 1000
Devlopment work on the Mastodon mining property at Hastings
Arm—the big ore discovery which
created a sensation during the early
summer—is being rapidly proceeded
Dr. J. T. Mandy, resident Mining engineer, when examining the
property recommended surface stripping of the ore body rather than
driving a tunnel. This was done,
and stripping of the surface was
undertaken between 8 open cuts
that had been previously driven.
The ore has now been stripped for
a distance of 1000 feet. The width
of the ore is from 12 to 14 feet.
Six feet of the width has been uncovered and proves tlie continuity
of the ore body.
Samples taken from various
points have given returns of $4.00
to $13.00 per ton in gold and silver
valuing gold at $30.00 per ounce.
The ore also carries lead and zinc
Plans are being made for the
employment of 3 or 4 men throughout the coming winter.
Dies After Fall of Only
Fifteen Feet
Anyox Mine Worker Fractures Head
The death occurred at the Hidden
Creek mine .inyox, on Thursday,
September «h. at 12.15 a. m. of Mr.
Marco Dangela. His death was
causal through falling a distance of
ISreet. He apparently landed on
lis head and right shoulder, fracturing both. He suffered a bad
head fracture and this was the cause
of death.
Deceased was 34 years of age,
and was born in Italy. He was
employed as steel nipper, and had
been in the employ of the Granbyj
Company for two months.
An inquest was held on Septem-,
ber 7th. when the body was viewed
and tbe inquest adjourned until the1
10th. At the inquest on the latter
date, after all evidence had been
taken, a verdict that the death of
deceased was caused by falling a
distance of 15 feet was returned.
Deceased is survived by his
mother Mrs. M. Tomadini of Cad-
roipa, Udne, Italy.
The body was interred in the
Anyox cemetery on September 10th.
and a large nnmber of friends of
deceased attended the funeral.
May Spend $7,500 On
Road Up Kitsault
The following telegram was re
ceived by A.  D. Yorke, secretary
of the Alice Arm Branch of the B. C
Chamber of Mines, on Wednesday,
from W. J. Asselstine M. L. A. :
Stewart, B. C.
B. C. Chamber of Mines
Alice Arm, B. C.
"Pleased to advise $7,500.00 allotted for Kitsault Road by Public
Works Department, Victoria, providing Dolly Varden Railway turned back to government."
Signed: W. J. Asselstine.
This is the most encouraging
news lhat the people of Alice Arm
have received for a long time. It
means that if the charter of the
Dolly Varden railway can be cancelled or that the owners abandon
their rights to the railway, then the
government is ready to go ahead
with'the construction of a highway
front the town of Alice Arm which
will be ultimately completed to the
end pf steel, a distance of 17 miles,
and no doubt extended to the Kit-
sauHGlacier a distance of another
8 miles at a later date.
The sum of $7,500.00 would not
perhaps convert the railway into a
highway but it would be a good
start towards achieving that end.
At the present time not even a
pack horse can be taken from Alice
Arm to the Upper Kitsault Country
The action of Mr. W. J. Assel
stine, in interesting himself to
remedy the lack of transportation
facilities in this district will be appreciated by everyone.
Mr. J. Cody Elected On The
A. C. L. Council
A special meeting of the Anyox
Community League was held in the
Recreation Hall on Wednesday,
September 5th. The purpose of
this meeting was to accept nomina
tions to fill the vacancy on the
Beach Council, caused throngh the
resignation of Mr. A. H. Stewart.
As Mr. Cody was the only person
nominated, chairman R. J. A. Man

Will Build Mill United
Empire Mine Next
The Stewart News
The olearing of a site before the
snow flies, for a concentrator of
150 tons capaoity, to be built in
the early spring, at the terminals
of the present tram on the road
three miles north of Stewart, is
the intention of the United Empire
Mines Co., according to a state
mont made this week to the News
hy William Dann, manager, who
returned from a oonferenee in Van
couver on Monday last,
In addition to this work the camp
at the mine is being considerably
enlarged, to provide for an increas.
ed crew. This includes among
other buildings a 15 room bunkhouse. Preparatory to actual mill
construction the management has
decided to mine and block out a full
years supply in advance of mill con
sumption, said Mr. Dann.
Underground at the mine at the
moment, Mr. Dann stated, the com
pany is drifting in a full face of ore
southeasterly, on the vein cut by
the long cross cut tunnel, at a point
which gave 225 of backs. As soon
as this drift breaks out into the
open, affording thereby ventilation,
it is proposed to go back and drift
northwesterly, gaining increased
depth rapidly. Stopes will be cut
and ore blocked out. The ore be
ing extracted in the course of this
development will be transported
and stored at the tram terminals
Operating the tram at a capacity
of some 80 to 90 tons of ore per
day, the work of accumulating this
ore is already under way. This of
course includes some of the ore
previously broken.
Ladies' Basketball Teams Are
Being Formed
While it is understood that the
Beach will enter two strong ladies'
teams, in the ladies' league this
winter, the Mine, as usual, will be
there in full force.
With a full team lined up, including one or two new players of championship calibre, Bill Gourlay, the
mine councillor who shepherded his
Mine softball All-Stars to victory,
is sure he can show the Beach a
thing or two.
The Pals and Aces of last year
made into two teams of equal
strength should make ladies' basketball more interesting than in
former years.
Prince  Rupert   Easily
Won The Softball
The Anyox softball fans were no
doubt disappointed with the results
of the games held between Anyox
and Prince Rupert last weekend.
Prince Rupert showed superiority
all the way.
Almost half-heartedly, some Of
our local boys blamed failure on the
grassy nature of the Rupert ball
grounds. The Rupert nine however, knocked that alibi into a cocked
hat when they walked all over the
Anyox boys on their home grounds.
Of the whole series, Anyox had
the pleasure of seeing their team
win only one game, the last. On
the whole, Anyox was extremely
lucky to win even that one. Only
the poor fielding shown by the Rupert boys in one inning allowed the
local lads to score at all.
The scores were as follows: Prince
Rupert games: 9 to 2 and 13 to 6
in favor of Rupert.
Anyox games: 4 to 2 and 7 to 4
in Prince Rupert's favor and the last
one 6 to 3 in favor of Anyox.

Points of View Of Other
Toronto Globe
Speaking to the weekly Newspapers Association in Montreal,
Mr. Floyd S. Chalmers, editor of
the Financial Post, Toronto, referred to the extension of press censorship in different parts of the
world. Eight ninths of the globe's
population, he remarked, is living
under serious restriction, of governmental character, on free speech.
In countries under absolutist
rule, of course, censorship is at its
worst. Not only is there a denial
of the rights of those who call, as
did John Milton, for the 'liberty to
know, to utter, and to argue freely
according to my conscience, above
all other liberties,' but there is a
positive demand for the publication of misinformation. As the
tenure of the tyrant becomes more
precarious, his propaganda requirements are likely to become progressively heavier. It is not enough that the truth shall be suppressed. Survival of the despot requires that there shall be systematic poisoning of public opinion.
Mr. Chalmers thus sums up the
The world can not devise a new
economic order while it is still in
darkness. It can not devise a new
social order behind the curtain of
censorship. It cannot devise a
new political order while personal
liberty is the heritage of but a
handful of people. World wide
freedom of the press must be the"
first step in the advance of personal liberty; personal liberty must
precede lasting economic, social or
political reform.
Canadians are among the small
fraction of the world's people who
enjoy the benefits that go with
freedom of expression. The press
of the dominion, on the whole, has
recognized that its rights pre-sup.
pose corresponding responsibilities,
As Mr. Chalmers observes, the few
newspapers that are not free ag
ents are bound by "chains of their
own creation." It is not govern
mental dictation, but the dictatorship by undercover interests that
constitutes the problem in Canada.
At different times there has been
pressure for legislation in Ottawa
to compel newspapers to publish
olearout statements of ownership.
It is manifestly desirable that the
publio shall be informed pf the
oharaoter of the interests that di
reot—or shall we say oontrol?—
press policies.   The newspaper that j
is really "free will not demur at the
full disclosure of details; rather it
will become a measure requiring
publication of the facts-
The Comox Argus
Far from toning down his speeches
on unethical practices in business,
Mr. Stevens' speech at Victoria was
more emphatic than ever. He
quoted conditions in Eastern Canada
where girls were paid 38 cents for
making a dozen ladies' dresses, and
25 cents. a dozen for overalls,
These are the extreme instances of
the sweatshop principle.
"The great bulk of the business
men in Canada desire to play the
game, and to do it right. Yet we
have illustration after illustration
nf the decent man being forced out
of business by the competition ot
those who would promote sweatshop
conditions for their own aggrandisement."
"When you rind decent men
driven out of business by such
methods, and unscrupulous persons
profiting through the misery of their
fellow men and women, are we to
keep silent?"
Mr. Stevens might have said and
in fact did say: am I to keep silent?
For there is no doubt that efforts
are being made by very powerful
interests to drive him out of public
life. It would be catastrophies for
sound business in Canada if the
effort to replace him as the head of
the Masssd Buying Commission
were successful.
New Provincial Mineralogist Has Good
Dr. J. F. Walker, who has been
appointed provincial mineralogist
to succeed John D. Galloway, is
well and favorably known in mining
circles in the province. Previous
to his present appointment Mr.
Walker was a member of Geological Staff of Canada, and spent much
time on geological surveys in Brit
ish Columbia..
Prior to joining the permanent
staff of the Geological Survey ten
years ago, Dr. Walker spent the
summer seasons of the years 1921,
1922 and 1923 on geological survey
parties in various parts of British
Columbia. One season he accompanied the late' Dr. W. L. Uglow
on geological examinations in the
Portland Canal and Skeena districts.
Born near Hamilton, Ontario,
Dr. Walker had his early schooling
in the east. He came to Vancouver
in 1910 and hadbegun studying for
his chosen profession at the Univer
sity of British Columbia when the
war intervened.
Enlisting with the British Columbia company of the Western Universities Battalion, 196th, he served
in France with the 46th. a Saskatoon
unit; and was slated for a commission in the Imperial Army when the
armistice was signed.
After the war he completed his
course at the University of B. C,
graduating with the degree or B. A
Sc. in 1922. He continued his
studies at Princeton being awarded
his Ph.Din 1924.
In announcing the appointment
of Dr. Walker, Hon. G. S. Pearson,
Minister of Mines stated that a re
organization of the mines depart
ment will be effected this fall.    First-
step toward the reorganization, will
be a conference to be held shoitly
which will be attended by the depu
ty minister, the newly   appointed
mineralogist and the resident dis
trict mining engineers.   .

Stewart Sports Writer Pleads
For More Co-operation
Joe Bouzok, genial sports writer
for the Stewart News, got a mad
on last week and roasted Stewart
ball players and fans in a heartwarming manner.
The Hiam baseball cup which has
been the baseball objective of Portland Canal for a number of years,
seems to have become lost quite
mysteriously lately. Joe, being
rather inclined to investigate the
unknown, turned sleuth and discovered the cup at Premier where it
has evidently reposed for some time.
Upon closer investigation it turned
out that the only shield for Stewart
bore the date 1920.
The discovery bore fruit in his
News article, in which he kicks
most energetically and calls for
better co-operation and competition
in the district.
If Joe will include Anyox and district in his yearning for unity, we'll
be right with him. There is no
reason why towns as close together
in a neighbourly and geographical
way, cannot play together more
often. The Basketball Series is a
step in the right direction. Go to
it Joe, we are all for you!
Arrangements Being  Made
For Basketball Championship Games
The Trustees of the Sun Life Cup
—which is the Northern B. C. Basketball Championship Trophy—got
together lately to decide on the
championship series for this winter.
The way we understood itj the
arrangement is that the Indian teams
are to stage an elimination series
for the right to play Prince Rupert.
Meanwhile, the Anyox and Premier
teams will be playing a short series,
the winner to play the winner of the
Prince Rupert—Indian series for
the championship.
The Cup which is donated by the
Sun Life Assurance Company
through the Prince Rupert Agent,
Mr. S. Jabour, will undoubtedly
stimulate public interest in basketball circles in the north. It was
won by Anyox for the first time last
year and there is no doubt that our
local basketeers will make a determined effort to retain it.
Anyox Hunters Entertained

Bay an hour later. The keen morning air had created enormous appetites, but these were lost after Mrs.
Mclntominey's bacon and eggs etc.
had been disposed of, and thus fortified the party felt more like killing
lions than ducks and geese.

Output of Zinc Is Being
At a recent meeting of the Zinc
Cartel, representing principal zinc
producers, it was decided to increase the authorized output from
50 per oent to 60 per cent of capacity. The increase was approved
in view of the drop in accumulated
stocks from 220,000 to 120,000 tons
since the cartel had been brought
into existence. The cartel was renewed until the end of 1934. Some
of the delegates emphasized that
despite the heavy decrease in
stocks the prioe of the metal continued to remain exceedingly low.
They held that on this account it
