Tiger Property to
be Developed.
Adjoins Toric
Has Big Ledges of High Grade
The Tiger property, whioh is con
sidered one of the most promising
silver properties in the Alice Arm
district, will be further developed
this year by Mr. Ed. Pickett, the
owner, who arrived on Thursday
from California for this purpose.
The Tiger joins the Toric on the
north. It has had considerable
development in the past, and with
extremely gratifying results.
The ore ledge ranges up to
twenty feet in width, and has a
length of about 600 feet. It has a
north and south strike, and dips
west to the Kitsault River. Surface work consists of eight open
cuts on the ledge. The first work
this year will consist of stripping
the ledge where it encounters the
rock slide on the south towards
the Toripv The ledge at this point
was 20 feet wide, shown by the
open cut on the edge of the heavy
The Tiger was bonded Jn 1919
to Henry B. Price of Victoria, for
$140,000, who did some shallow
diamond -drilling - on- the north
part of the ledge, which proved
that the Tiger possesses high grade
silver ore bodies, of considerable
magnitude, at a depth of over 100
A tunnel 140 feet in length, with
a vertical depth of 142 feet was
also driven, which showed the ore
ledge to be 18 feet wide, 6 feet of
which ran high in silver values.
This tunnel will probably be extended this year in order to encounter the high grade ore located
by the diamond drill, 5 feet of
which assayed 213 ozs. silver per
Owing to the sudden drop in the
price of silver, and the general inactivity of mining throughout the
province, the bond on the Tiger
was allowed to lapse, and since
that time no work has been done.
It is the opinion, however, of
Mr. Pickett, after making a careful survey of mining conditions
throughout the continent, that the
time is ripe for developing this
promising property, and prove conclusively that the Tiger has high
grade ore in quantities large
enough to satisfy any mining company who are seeking new properties.
The Tiger is oentrally located in
the rioh mineral /.one of the upper
Kitsault' country. It joins the
Torio on the north, whose wonderful ore discoveries are making suck
a sensation. On the south it joins

It is situated only about 1J miles
from the end of the Dolly Varden
railway, so that transportation
i problems will be neglible.

over four years ago, has been in-
LaRose Co. Ready to
Start Tunnel
Mr. J. M. Morrison, who returned to Alioe Arm on Tuesday from
Stewart and Anyox, where he was
successful in disposing of considerable stock of the LaRose Mining
Co., states that everything ia now
in roadiness for the driving of the
tunnel on the LaRose property.
There are ample funds in the
treasury for the undertaking of
this work, and a commencement is
planned on or before June 1st.
It is estimated that a tunnel 400
feet long will be necessary in order
to strike the ore at depth. A contract for this work will be let immediately to local men.
Anyox Scouts Camp
at Larcom Island
On May 9th. and 10th. the
Anyox No. 2 troop spent an enjoyable week-end in camp ou Larcom
Island. The weather being ideal
the time was profitably spent in
scouting and swimming. Three
scouts were successful in second
class tests, namely: Scout Harris
of the Eagles, Scout Dwyer of the
Wolves, and Scout McMillan oi
the Bulldogs, the tests including
(ire fighting, cooking, first-aid,
signalling and compass.
The scouts, who slept out in the
open, voted for outdoor sleeping all
the time and declared that they
were not the least bit cold. Arriving home at about 7.30 Sunday
evening all were pleasantly tiredt
ready for a good night's sleep and
in the pi.uk of condition.
Another Big Log Boom
Leaves For South
A tugboat arrived in port on
Monday and towed out 1,500.000
feetb.m. of logs from the booms
of Eric Carlson. These logs are
destined for Ocean Palls, and will
be anchored at Green Inlet while
the tug returns for another boom
on the 18th. The next boom will
comprise 1,000.000 feet for Prinoe
Rupert, and about 850,000 ft. for
Ocean Falls.

Kitsault River Mining
Co. Hold Meeting
Will Develop Soon as Possible
The regular statutory meeting of
the Kitsault River Mining and
Development Co., Ltd.. was held on
Friday evening, May 8th. at their
office. A fairly large number of
shareholders were present, The
financial position of the company
was shown to be in a very healthy
state, and the future outlook of
the company appears very bright.
Mr. A. D. Yorke ,was appointed
seoretary to the company.
It is the intention of the company to commence active development work as soon as the snow is
off the ground and supplies freight
ed in. Mr. O. Flint plans to visit
the property in the near future, to
ascertain conditions in the upper
Kitsault country.
Mr. Elmer Ness will leave for
the south on Monday, in connection
with company business. He will
visit the chief southern towns,
and will probably extend his visit-
to Spokane.
Alice Arm Beer Parlor
Opened on Thursday
The beer parlor of the Pioneer
Hotel, operated by N. Sutilovich.
was opened to the public on Thurs
day evening, who quickly availed
themselves .of the opportunity to
indulge iu a glass of beer at a
nominal price. The general
opinion was that the beer was
good. Service was first class, and
that such a place will fill a long
felt want. The parlor is provided
with tables and chairs, and ample
accommodation has been provided
to cope with any rush that may
occur during the hot weather
terested in mining, and has visited
most of the oamps of the western
states since that time. In no
place he has visited has he seen
such large ore bodies of silver ore,
and such a promising mineral belt
as the upper Kitsault Oountry,
especially the portion extending
from the Dolly Varden to the
Moose, and prediots that this camp
will shortly be the scene of great
activity, and Alioe Arm will then
take her plaoe as the leading mining oamp of northern. B C.
Forthcoming Events

Two Old Timers Back
In Alice Arm
Al Miner, who is numbered
among the earliest residents of
Alice Arm, returned ou Thursday
from California, where he has
spent the past four or five years.
Al. is one of the successful pioneers
of the camp, who was instrumental iu placing Alice Arm on the
map. He was the locater and
part owner of the "Three Musk-
eeters," which joins the Tiger on
the north, and which was sold to
A. D. Meenack in 1919 for $75.-
000. Al. also owns a quarter interest in the Toric mine.
' Ed. Pickett, who is another of
the pioneer prospectors of the
camp, arrived on Thursday from
California, where he has resided
since his departure four and a half
years ago. Ed. is the owner of
the Tiger property, which joins
the Toric on the north, and which
is considered one of the most
promising properties in the whole
Alice Arm district. He states
that mining is in an extremely
healthy state throughout the
southern states, and is confident
that the time is ripe for a revival
of mining activity on a large scale
in this district. He intends to vfo
considerable development on the
Tiger this year.
Granby Co. to  Commence
Development of Standard
Next Week
It is understood that the Granby
Co. will commence active development work on the Standard property on McGrath mountain next
week. The original plans called
for surface stripping of the ore
bodies, to be followed by diamdnd
drilling, and it is probable that
this policy will be carried out.
The first work to be done, however, will be repairing the trail

Henry Ford has just signed an
advertising appropriation which
calls for the expenditure within a
year of $6,000,000. William Wrigley, the chewing gum manufacturer, spent last year $3,500,000 for
advertising, while there was spent
in 1913 in magazine advertising
alone—to say nothing of the much
larger amount spent in newspapers—the following amounts by
representative concerns: Campbell's Soup, $1,460,350; Colgate &
Co., $1,184,439; Proctor & Gamble
$1,167,550. and Congoleum & Co.,
It is scarcely necessary to say
that these advertisers would not
have spent their money if they
were not getting results, and the
fact that each year their advertis-
appropriation is larger than the
preceding year speaks volumes
for the value of advertising.
The lesson is here for anyone
who cares to profit by it and it applies not alone to national advertisers but to local advertisers, who,
if they are to keep their names before the public and develop their
market, must spend money to advertise.
Anyox Mine Football
Team Win from
The second game of the football
schedule was played Friday even
ing, bringing together the Mine
and Beach teams. The men from
the hill were in the best form and
turned the Beach back three goals
to nil. The Miners were superioi
at all stages of the game and weli
deserve to win. The losers however, have the making of a fine
eleven, and when the players gel
to understand each other's style
of play, they will be a hard combination to beat.
The first goal was a gift to the
Mine, when Ingram scored one
against his own side in an attempt to clear from in front of the
goal. Dearlove notched the other
two, both from close in, the goalkeeper having no chanoe. Pynne
was a tower of strength on the defence for the winners, always being
there when wanted. Jimmie
Twaddle, handled the whistle in
fine style, giving satisfaction to
players and spectators alike.
The Teams were: Mine: Royle,
Pynne, S. Stewart, Gilmour, R.
Stewart, S. Cane, Hunter, Dearlove, Peters and Jack.
Beach: Hunter, Brown, Lavery,
Evans. Taylor, Hogben, Wilson.
Stevens, Ellison, Ingram and
Lecturer: "Yes, my friends, in
China human life is considered of
very little value. Indeed, if a wealthy
Chinaman is condemned to death he
can easily hire another to die for him.

living by acting as substitutes,"
Granby Co. Fails
to Show Profit for
Last Year
Depreciation Again Wipes
Out Profit
The report of the Granby Consolidated Mining, Smelting and
Power company for the year ended
December 31,1924, shows a deficit
of $772,373, after taxes, interest,
depreciation and depletion, as compared with a deficit of $717,287, in
Granby earned net profits before
depreciation, but after interest and
all operating charges of $832,391
in 1924, compared with $777,326
in 1923, although the average price
obtained for copper in 1924 was
13.012 cents a pound against 14.-
848 in 1923. In every way, 1924
results were the best since the war,
stated J*. T. Crabbs, president.
The outstanding feature of the
year was improvement in the position of the company's net current
assets. Bank loans were reduced
approximately $750,000 in 1923, or
a total of $1,400,000 in the last
two years. Further reduction has
been made since the close of the
year, so now, Colonel Crabbs states
twice current liabilities.
Betterment in net quick assets
has been accomplished concurrently with the completion of a large
construction program, involving a
storage dam, hydroelectric extension and concentrator, to which
approximately $1,340,000 of earnings have been applied to meet the
bulk of the expenditure.
The company mined 928,830 tons
of ore from the high-grade reserve.
As diamond drill prospecting add-
t;d 798,000 tons to reserve in 1924,
high grade reserves totalled approximately 7,500,000 tons at the
end of 1924. averaging 2 per cent,
copper, decrease of only 130,830
tons for the year. Diamond drill
exploration is to be continued during the coming year.
The Anyox concentrator, which
■started April. 1924, dressed 251,-
898 tons of ore averaging 1.535 per
cent, copper, capacity having been
brought up to 1200 to 1400 tons a
day by the end of the year. The
concentration ratio was 10.103 tons-
into 1 and the recovery of 81.396
per cent, of the copper in the feed.
With the completion of the concentrator, storage dam, and hydroelectric extensions, no further large
capital expenditures are anticipated.
