Development Work and
Mill For Tidewater
Angus McLeod, Superintendent
of Dalhousie Mining1 Company
Limited, arrived from Vancouver
on Thursday, and at once set about
opening up the old Tidewater property on Alice Arm.
Tlie "Herald" recently succeeded
in cornering Mr. McLeod, for a few
minutes to ask what it is all about,
and what is the nature and extent
of the development intended, and
received from Mr. McLeod, a statement, the gist of which is as
My instructions arc to proceed as
rapidly as possible with such new
development as may be necessary
to prove up a tonnage of ore
sufficient to guarantee a two years'
run for a mill which is projected for
the property. To put in a good
road from the beach to a selected
mill site, and to follow with the
construction of the mill as soon as
the required tonnage is developed.
I would think that with reasonable
luck, we should be able to develop
the necessary tonnage of ore within
four or five months. There is a
considerable amount of ore developed in the old workings, and if it
proves to be of a like character and
extent at the 100 foot level which
we intend driving, that will be all
that we require to prove before proceeding with the mill.
The development intended is of
the simplest nature and should not
take more than the time stated.
The property is situated on deep
water on Alice Arm and the construction of a road to the workings
—at an elevation of 1000 feet,—
will be easy and inexpensive. The
ore is very high grade and there
appears to be a large tonnage of it
available. Sampling and test shipments to date show values running
from $25.00 to $140.00 per ton.
We feel justified in basing our calculations on a mill feed of $25.00
per ton, with a probability that it
will average twice that value.
This project has been kept very
quiet, partly for the reason that the
property comprising the mine was
divided up among a number of
persons and interests including the
estate of a deceased owner, and has
also been tied up with litigation and
threatened litigation for a number
of years. The Dalhousie solicitors
have been patiently engaged for
nearly two years in reconciling all
parties, and getting the title cleared
up and'all interests gathered in, so
as to permit the property to be
worked; and the last outstanding
interest has just recently been
Now, however, that we are
actually on the property, said Mr.
McLeod, it is obviously impossible
to keep the matter under cover any
longer. -
The fact that this deal has been

High Honors For Anyox
High School Pupils
Anyox high-school pupils took
the first two places in the essay
contest arranged by the- Fire Prevention Committee of British Columbia. Maxwell Patrick receives
a live-dollar gold-piece and Barbara
Lee for second place will be awarded a handsome diploma.
District Number Six comprises,
in addition to local school districts,
"Coastal and Northern British Columbia, including all that territory
lying north of Vancouver and west
of the Coast Range including and
north of Quesnel".
The Committee writes that "the
delay in announcing the prize winners has been due to the general
excellence of the essays".
The procedure followed at Granby
Bay High School was, perhaps,
stricter than elsewhere. Following
an analysis of the local situation
during Fire Prevention Week, the
essay plan was developed in class
discussions and on the last afternoon the essays were written as a
form of examination.
Brilliant Gathering At
Elks' Ball
The purple and white of Elkdom
in intricate patterns furnished a
colorful background for the Annual
Ball of the Anyox Lodge B. P. O.
E., on Monday evening.
Lodge ceremonies and regalia
were in evidence, and the spring
fashions for men and women. Two
sittings of an excellent supper were
served. Joe Peel's musicians played well into the night without diminution of tempo or volume except
for the supper interval when H.
Ward and associates substituted.
The management of the affair
was in charge of a Committee including Messrs. Ed. Johnson, C.
Tully, and J. Hutchinson, acting
with S. Armstrong, Exalted Ruler
ind I. Bassett, Secretary.
Large Number Attend Funeral
Of Late Mrs. M. Studdy
The funeral of Mrs. M. Studdy,
who passed away at Anyox hospital
last week, was held at Alice Arm
on Sunday. Rev. W. B. Jennings
Every seat in the building now
being temporary used as the Church
was occupied. The service was
very impressive, and many eyes
glistened with tears when Rev.
Jennings alluded to the virtues of
the departed.
Over one hundred friends of the
deceased attended the service and
followed the coffin to the Alice Arm
cemetery, where interment took
place. The coffin was covered
with a mass of floral tributes from
many friends. The pall bearers
were J. A. Anderson, Al. Falconer,
T. W. Falconer, J. Graham, J.
Trinder, E. Moss.
First Aid Students Will
Pass Examinations
The classes and lectures on First
Aid came to a conclusion recently.
Dr. D. It. Learoyd will commence
the examination for certificates on
Monday next. April 7. He makes
a special appeal to all those who
have attended the lectures under
Dr. James, to make the effort to
secure the certificate of the St.
John Ambulance Association.
The examination for the "First"
certificate is not a difficult one,
and in these days when more and
more attention is being paid to the
matter of safoty and Eirst Aid, its
possession will prove a valuable
asset to those passing the examination.
The following are invited to

The bouts were a useful demonstration of the value of boxing and
wrestling as aids in keeping fit if
the dangers lurking in the tendency
to reckless slugging and painful
holds can be eliminated and the
youths induced to copy the British
"gentleman-sportsman". Any tendency to enqourage professionalism
ought to be nullified.
Gymnastics Are Impressive
One particularly impressive part
of the programme of the progam
was an exhibition of gymnastic
work by a class instructed by Wm.
Ring. The young men have had
only a few weeks' instruction, but
their aerial work evoked great
applause. Instructor Ring gave a
finished solo -performance on the
parallel bars. ' The gymnasts
were Walter Stenton, K. Mork.
Jack and Will Pinckney, Joe and
Steve Peel and Jack and Joe Taylor.
A Big Night At Anyox
Community League
The Community League Smoker
on Friday evening was a great
success as entertainment, and furnished plenty of material for conversation for several days thereafter. The unanimous expression
was that it was the best smoker
ever held in Anyox.
Henry Deeth, now of the Cavalry-
Club, Vancouver, trained down to
134 pounds and yet got the call by a
good margin over VV. Bagshaw of
Prince Rupert who tipped the scales
at 138j4 pounds. Deeth was the
faster and more aggressive while
Bagshaw had a punch that hurt
when it landed. Both boys took a
lot of punishment about the head,
blood flowing freely. Deeth was
credited with four rounds, Bagshaw
with one, and one was even.
Stuart Barclay 118, outweighed
Pete Chenoski 114, of Prince Rupert, and out-fought the visitor in
the first round, during which Chenoski was on the ropes several times,
taking a brief count on one occasion. Both boys were going slow-
in the second round. Chenoski
was in better condition for the
third round and forcd the fighting,
gaining the round and earning a

to appear were Tommy Scott and
Harold Dresser looking very hostile,
but most of their hay-makers went
wide and the bout went several
miles to a happy ending.

One Man Dies During
Disastrous Fire At
One man dead, one man seriously shaken up, total destruction
of buildings and contents of the
Universal Supply Co. and Curtis
Shoe Repair Shop, were the results of a disastrous lire on fifth
street shortly after three o'clock on
Wednesday morning, says the
Stewart News.
Dead: David Johnstone, age 35,
who fell or jumped from a window
of the blazing Universal store,
broke his neck and died in the
Stewart hospital approximately 24
hours later.
Injured: G. W. Smith, pioneer
merchant of Stewart and manager
of the Universal Supply Co., who
sustained a severe shaking up when
forced to jump from a window in
his living quarters above the store.
He is at present in hospital, and
late reports are that he is making
good progress towards recovery.
Destroyed by fire: Two storey
building of the Universal Supply
Co., almost its entire stock of hardware, etc., and house furnishings
in the living quarters above; small
frame structure adjoining the hardware store, occupied by the Curtis
Shoe Repair Shop, and a small
amount of shoe repairing machin-

Montreal, home of Mr. and Mrs. F.
Bowler, the Newel! building and
office of the Power Corporation
suffered considerable damage to
windows and exterior as a result of
the terrific heat.
Mr. Smith places his loss at
$21,000, which is offset by insurance to the extent of $14,000.
No  man   is   greater   than    the
thoughts that occupy his mind.
Formation of a branch of the B.

with the Board of Trade.
Insurance For Returned
Men Ends August
James C. Brady, M. P. has been
advised that the time in which ex-
service men may apply for insurance under the Returned Soldiers'
Insurance Act will expire August
31st. of this year. The Act, which
was passed in 1920 and amended at
later sessions provides that:
Insurance to the amount of $500
or any multiple thereof, not exceeding $5,000, shall be granted to
every person, male or female, who
served with the Canadian forces
during the Great War, or who was
a resident of Canada on August
4th. 1914, and served with any of
the forces of his Majesty or his
allies, or any widow of a member of
the forces, who with or without
dependents, is ill with a disability,
pensionable or not pensionable, but
is not counted seriously ill, may be
accepted provided he or she has
dependents. An application will
not be accepted from anyone, with
or without dependents, whose
health has become impaired as the
result of immoral conduct, prior to
enlistment, during service or after
The insurance to any amount not
exceeding $1,000 is to be paid upon
the death of the insured, and the
balance, if any, at the option of the
insured, as an annunity in various
forms. The money paid under
these contracts is unassignable, and
is not subject to the claims of creditors of either the insured or the
beneficiary. Provision is made for
the protection of the ex-service man
who becomes totally disabled, and
the usual rules pertaining to paid-
up policies and cash surrender
values apply.
All returned soldiers who desire
insurance and who are eligible under the Act should not let this
opportunity pass of obtaining insurance.

New policies paid for numbered 161,391 for a net
amount of $654,451,143.27, an advance of $213,206,-
752.36, or more than forty-eight per cent., over the
previous year. This marked increase and the fact
that the average policy, for the first time, exceeded
$4,000, afford impressive evidence of the evergrowing popularity of the Company.
After deducting amounts reassured, the total
assurances in force amount to $2,401,237,036.94, an
increase of $504,321,102.37. This advance is notable
not merely for its magnitude, but because when
allowance is made for terminations by death and
maturity, It represents a remarkably high rate of
continuance, and evidences great satisfaction on the
part of our policyholders.
The amount paid to policyholders since organization, together with the amount at present held for
their security or benefit, exceeds the total amount
received from them in premiums by $139,290,474.03.
The rate of interest earned on the mean invested
assets has risen to 7.02 per cent. This figure includes
a certain amount from bonuses and stock privileges
accruing on many of the Company's holdings; but if
these were entirely eliminated the rate would still be
6.60 percent.
A net profit of $13,077,284.62 was realized from
the redemption or sale of securities.
The surplus earned during the year, based on the
values entered in the accounts, amounted to $42,-
863,578.59, but from this sum substantial appropriations have as usual been made to further strengthen
the position of the Company.
An additional- $10,000,000.00 has been deducted
from the market values of our securities as a provision against possible market fluctuations, raising
the amount thus set aside for this purpose in the
accounts to $30,000,000.00.
A further $1,000,000.00 has been written off the
Company's buildings.
$931,000.00 has been appropriated to raise the
annuity reserves to the Rutherford table of valuation,
with interest at 3 % per cent. This exacting standard
requires reserves $2,656,000.00 in excess of those of
the Dominion Government standard.
$1,200,000.00 has been set aside as additional provision for claims arising from total disability, death
claims as yet unreported, and possible claims under
cancelled policies on which a surrender value or reinstatement might be applied for.
$22,606,265.67 has been paid or allotted as profits
for the year to policy holders.
The special amount entered as a liability to provide for unforeseen contingencies has been maintained at $12,500,000.00.
After making all these deductions and allocations,
$5,868,899.96 has been added to the undivided surplus, bringing the total over liabilities, contingency
accounts and capital stock, to $60,307,762.44.
In accordance with our usual conservative practice
the securities owned by the Company have again
been valued at figures much below the market quotations current at the close of the year. This undervaluation represents an important element of
strength to the Company additional to the specific
provisions in the statements.
Your Directors are pleased to announce that the
high scale of profits at present allotted to participating policyholders will becontinued during the ensuing
year,while the Special Dividend on maturing policies,
introduced last year, has been extended to include
policies maturing after having been in force five
years or longer and the scale of benefit has been
The business of the Company has always been
conducted under the exacting provisions of the
Canadian Insurance law and the rigid supervision of the Insurance Department of the
Government of Canada. Ever since we entered the United States in 1895, the Company
has been under similar supervision there and
is now subject to the regulations of thirty-
eight States of the Union which require
periodical examination of the affairs of all
companies licensed in their territory. In the
discharge of their regular duties a committee
of twenty-two examiners, representing the
States of Michigan, Massachusetts, Minnesota,
Ohio, Tennessee, Washington, Virginia, West
Virginia, Florida and the District of Columbia
recently completed an exhaustive examination
into every department of the Company's
affairs. The report of this committee
makes gratifying reference to the liberal
treatment accorded to our policyholders, and
provides authoritative testimony to the Company's strength. Even adopting the low
valuations placed by us on our securities, the
committee still reported a surplus at th» close
of last year $1,333,921.71 in excess of the
figure claimed by the Company.

Development Work and Mill
For Tidewater Property
Continued from page 1
pending has been one reason why
development has not been pushed
faster on othpr Dalhousie properties.
The Tidewater is not necessarily a
better property than the Dalhousie
or the Home Guard, but it is higher
grade and much simpler in character
and better situated. It can be
developed and brought into production at probably one-fifth of the
cost, and in one-third of the time
that either of the other properties
could. Besides, I understand that
there is a good chance that both of
other properties may be taken over
by large operating cempanies within the year.
Dalhousie has always had Old
Country backing, and I understand
that ample capital is arranged to
bring this property into production.
I examined this a year ago, and
reported upon it very favourably to
my company. I may say that I am
not alone in my high opinion of this
property. An engineer of the Mines
Department at Ottawa has twice
examined this property, and in reply
to a request from Dalhousie Mining
Company, for information on it,
gave it a most excellent report, and
stated that it was one of the best
properties of its kind in Canada.
Moreover, the engineers of two
or three of the largest operating
companies in Canada have examined the property, and according to
information which 1 have obtained,
invariably reported favourably upon
it, but of course, the property has
not been available for development
until now.
William McFarlane, well known
prospector of Alice Arm, a part
owner of some of the claims included in the Tidewater property
expresses great satisfaction over
the development.
"I have always regarded the
Tidewater," said Mr. McFarlane,
"as the finest property I have ever
had anything to do with, but at
times I have despaired of ever seeing the various conflicting interests
got together, so that it might be
developed. I feel now that my ship
has come in, for, unless I am utterly
mistaken, the Tidewater will prove
to be a great mine, and it won't
take very long lo prove it either."
