Mine Club Scores
' Another Success
Over Three Hundred Attend
What was no doubt the best
smoker pulled off in Anyox within several years, was held at the
Mine Hall on Friday evening last.
A crowd of well ovor three hundred were present and enjoyed
thoroughly the high class programme provided.
Those taking part wore: Owens
aud Evans in a delightful duet.
Isaac Skog, the accordionist
supreme, delighted the audience
with three well executed numbers.
E. Blundell was iu line voice, also
Ed. Craggs. Jimmy Mitohell contributed two nicely rendered numbers, one being of his own composition, having as its theme, local
basketball enthusiasts. The Dr.
Simmon's Cup, emblematic of the
Senior basketball championship,
was presented by Mr. C. McLachlan, President of the Community League, to Mr. P. Stewart,
captain of the Mine team, who are
winners of the trophy for 1924-
' Several boxing contests were
staged during the evening. Cyril
McDonald, Beach, opposed T.
Farnell. Mine, in a fast three
round bout. George Clark and T.
Halverson also put up a nice exhibition, Archie Smith and Billy
Reynolds boxed three rounds.
Reynolds is a boxer of no mean
ability, and no doubt would show
a lot of class against some good
lightweight. He also appeared in
an exhibition match with his
youthful protege, Russell McMillan, who showed considerable skill
and is a credit to his teaoher.
Evans and Arscott appeared in
what proved to be the best bout of
the evening, both exhibiting considerable boxing ability, and mixed it from start to finish. "Pigskin " Dearlove and "Glory Hole"
Peters slugged through three
torrid sessions, giving the fans
plenty of thrills.
The feature event of the evening
was the wrestling match between
Sam Goto and Dick Stubbs. Both
men have plenty of ability, aud
some nice wrestling was the result. Stubbs was the victor iu two
straight falls. The first iu nine
and-a-half minutes, and the
second in six. Previous to the
start of the bout, Stanley
Komiskey was introduced and
challenged the winner.
Jimmy Mitchell acted as
announcer for the events and kept
things always ou the move. T,
Gilmore was the time keeper.
Pat Ryan was referee for the boxing, and Hilly Reynolds was the
third man in the ring for the
wrestling match. The Mine Orchestra kept the crowd in good
humor during the evening. All
told it was a very successful evening, and the Mine Club are to be
congratulated on their ability as
first class providers of entertainment and also as hosts.
Boom of Logs  Leave
Alice Arm
The first boom of logs to leave
the logging camp of Miles Donald,
left on Thursday evening for
Prince Bupert sawmill.
The boom comprised about 500,-
000 feet b.m, and was composed
chiefly of high grade spruce. Over
500,000 feet are in tho water, and
these also will be towed to Prince
Rupert as soon as the boom can be
made up. The rough weather
down the inlet has lately interfered
with booming operations. These
logs will be used by the Rupert
mill for commencing operations.
Miles Donald's camp, which is
near Campers Point, will operate
throughout the coming summer.
Young Couple of Anyox are
Married In Prince Rupert
A very quiet wedding was
solemnized at Prince Rupert, on
Friday March 27th., when Miss
Lucy Teaho became the bride of
Mr. Stanley Pamplin.
The ceremony was performed at
the residence of Archdeacon Rix, of
St. Andrew's Anglican Church, at
the hour of 7 p.m. Archdeacon
Rix was the officiating clergyman.
Both the young couple are well
known iu Anyox. Previous to her
marriage, Mrs. Pamplin resided
here with her parents, Mr. and
Mrs. F. Teabo. Mr. Pamplin has
resided in Anyox for a number of
years, and holds a position at the
local printing plant. A large
number of friends wish them all
happiness and prosperity.
The bride and groom arrived
home on Monday, and will make
their future home iu Anyox.
They were accompanied by Mrs.
F. Teabo, mother of the bride.
It is not often that the public
lave an opportunity to invest in a
company such as they now have in
the La Rose Mining Co. of Alice
Arm. The property is known
throughout the district as one of
the best. The company are not
handicapped by large overhead
expenses. All development work
will be in charge of practical
men, who are anxious for its success.

LaRose Mining Shares
Find Ready Market
A meeting of the shareholders
of the La Rose Mining Co. was
held in Prince Rupert on Tuesday
evening. Mr. J. M. Morrison
stated this to the Herald on his
arrival from the terminal city
Mr. Miles Donald, Alice Arm,
was elected president, and Dr. W.
T. Kergin, Prince Rupert, was
elected Vice-president.
The directors are: J. Wells, Alice
Arm, and J. H. Thompson, hardware merchant, Prinoe Rupert..
E. H. Mortimer of Prince Rupert,
was reelected secretary, and J. M.
Morrison of Alice Arm, was
appointed selling agent.
It was decided to place a block
of stock ou the market for immediate development purposes.
Shares to be sold at 50 cents each,
and same can be obtained from E.
H. Mortimer, Prince Rupert, or
J. M. Morrison, Alice Arm. It
was also decided to undertake a
programme of development work
as soon as the snow is off the
Mr. Morrison states that he
was successful in disposing of quite
a large amount of stock in Prince
Rupert. The officers of the company are all local men, wdio are
known throughout the district as
•eliable business men. The prop-
rty is also widely known on
iccount of ore shipments and
government engineer's reports as a
property worthy of investment,
and this aided considerably in disposing of stock without any
Tunnel on Veba Veda
Is Being Extended
The tunnel on the Veba Veda
property is being extended 50 feet
by Archie McPhail, assisted by
Paul Jacob. When this work is
completed the tunnel will have a
length of 300 feet, and it will
have encountered ore or will
have but a short distance to
The Veba Veda, which until
recently was known as the Independent, is situated on the hill
west of Alice Arm and is about
one mile from town,
A nice vein of ore was discovered
ou the property a few years ago by
Archie McPhail, and a shaft was
sunk on it a distance of 14 feet.
The shaft proved that the ore
vein widened from 2i feet on the
surface to 5i feet in the bottom of
the shaft. The ore is silver, it is
identical to the Esperanza ore, and
picked samples have given assay
returns of 70 ounces silver per ton.
The tunnel, which is now being
driven, is expected to strike the ore
vein in the shaft at a depth of 100
feet. The ore is lying against a
porphry dyke on the foot wall, and
argillite on the hanging wall. It
dips sharply into the hill, and it is
anticipated that it will be necessary to drive the tunnel 50 feet
beyond the shaft before the vein
is picked up. The strike of the
vein is north and south.
Company Organized by
Mr. Geo. Bruggy While
In South
Mr. Geo. Bruggy arrived home
yesterday from a three month's
trip to Vancouver, in which was
combined business with pleasure.
In an interview with the Herald
Mr. Bruggy stated he had been
successful in forming a company
in the south for the purpose of
developing the Montana property,
which is situated on the Marmot
river, a short distance from Stewart, and in which he holds an
The company will be known as
the Marmot River Mining Co., and
Angus McLeod, of Stewart, who
holds an interest in the property,
will he managing director. Mr.
McLeod is known throughout the
Portland Canal district as a
thorough practical mining man,
and the management of the property could not be in better hands.
The Montana group were the
lirst claims staked in the Marmot
River section, and it holds the record of being the lirst property iu
tlie Stewart district to ship ore to
a smelter at a profit.
The officers of the company invite the closest investigation in regard to the management of the
company, and also the future
prospects of the property developing into a mine.
It is the intention that at least
80% of the money subscribed will
be spent on the property for development purposes. Instead of doing their mining around Vancouver
Hotels—as is the case in many
instances—the money will be spent
where it should be—ou the ground.
A large number of shares have
been sold and the future outlook is
full of promise. Messrs. Rolston
and Rookford, of Stewart, are the
fiscal agents for the company.
Toric Mine Has Closed
For a Few Weeks
The Toric Mine, whose spectacular ore showing of the past few
months have made such a stir in
mining circles throughout the
province, ceased operations for a
few weeks on Thursday.
The cause of the cessation was
due to a shortage of powder and
rails. As soon as the Dolly
Varden tracks are clear of snow,
supplies of all kinds will be moved
in, and work will be pushed with
renewed vigor. It is expected
that about six weeks will elapse
before actual mining operations
will recommence.
At the time of the close-down
the No. 1 crosscut tunnel had cut
156 feet of ore, and the hanging
wall had uot yet been reached,
riiis tunnel is now following the
fault, and has cut into the fault
in several places. The ore maintained its value right up to the
last round. ALICE   ARM   AND   ANYOX   HERALD,   Saturday!   April   4.   1925

The mining industry of British
Columbia is expanding by leaps
and bounds, and 1925 promises lo
be a banner year. Mining is receiving more and more attention
in the daily press of Vancouver.
The Vancouver Daily Sun is devoting considerable space to mining news, and it is actively supporting the $30,000 drive now being
carried on by the B. C. Chamber
of Mines. The people of the
province are realizing the importance of the mining industry, and
every mining town throughout the
province are redoubling their
efforts to induce capital to develop
mining properties.
Although Alice Arm possesses
one of the best ore bearing mineral
belts in the province, it still refuses
to advertise the fact, as it ought to
be advertised. It is often a cause
of wonderment why mining properties all over the province are being bonded wholesale, while Alice
Arm has to be content with three
properties bonded last year, and
with no guarantee that any will be
bonded this year.
The fault is not hard to find, for
il is our own. We can not blame
mining companies, when they do
not know what we have. If we
wish to sell our goods, we must
place the particulars of the property we wish to sell before the
buying public. The B. C.
Chamber of Mines was formed for
this purpose, and any information
regarding mining properties should
be sent to them. Mining engineers
from all over the world will visit
the Chamber of Mines during the
coming summer, in order to obtain
information of certain districts. If
they cannot secure any information of Alice Arm, they naturally
scratch us off their list of camps to
be visited.
The Western Canada Mining
News, in a recent issue, says of
the Chamber of Mines:
"The H. C, Chamber of Mines has
done much for the prospector and
mine owner. It keeps on record a
register of properties, with as full
particulars as may be given, so
that inquirers may be given information. With the advent of
many people during the coming
summer, it is confidently expected
that much good work will be done.
Displays of mineral specimens,
made at Sacramento and Spokane
during the latter part of 11124,
interested a large number of mining men who attended the conventions of those places, with the
result that quite a number signified their intention of coming to
Vancouver this year. With a
larger organization, the B. C.
Chamber of .Mines will be able to
Copper Consumption
Exceeds Output
Electrical development and  the
universal adaptation  of  the  radio
accounts for the   fact   that   the
world's consumption  of copper is
exceeding  the  world's  output  by
from    15,000,000    to     20,000,000
pounds monthly at   the   present
time, according to recent estimates
by the American bureau of metal
statistics.      Countries   furnishing
95 per cent, of the world's output
of copper in 11122, and 1)0 per cent,
in  1923,  produced   120,801   short
tons of copper in   November compared With 128,551 short tons in
October, 116,905 in September and
119,346 in August.     This makes
the world's output of copper in the
lirst eleven months of 1924,  1,331,
885 tons or an average of 121,080
a  month,  compared   with    1,356,-
196 tons for the full year of 1923,
or a  monthly  average  of  113,016
tons.    Of the eleven months'   total
for 1924   Canada  produced  34,134

With mi organization like that,
mineral production will greatly increase, aud cities throughout the
province will benefit by the
greater activity."
Every individual owning mining properties should list his property with the Chamber of Mines.
A local organization should also be
formed, and.it should be the duty
of its secretary to supply information to the Chamber of Mines
whenever necessary, and also
handle any other form of publicity

We can ride on the top of the
coming wave of prosperity with

The town of Alice Arm is quite
capable, in its present size, of
handling all business accruing
from a payroll of around 200 miners. If we can't get a payroll of
200 miners within the next two
years, we are going to grow smaller, and if we start on the down

hit bottom.

Big Zinc Stack at Trail
Will Be Completed
Work on the big zinc stack at
Trail smelter, which was stopped
when freezing weather made its
appearance, has been resumed this
week and will be carried on until
completed. The stack will be the
highest on the American continent
and will solve to a great extent
the ''smoke" question which has
been a source of contention for
some time.
The Rust Engineering company
of Pittsburgh. Pa., has the contract with EL V. Arnold, engineer,
in charge of the work. The big
foundation and about forty feet of
the stack was built last fall. The
big chimney will measure 25 feet
in diameter at the bottom, and 21
feet in diameter at the top. It
will be brick lined and will contain a number of chambers for
catching the dust.

Alice Arm Children To
Be Vaccinated Against
The trustees of the Alice Arm
School have been advised by the
Provincial Board of Health to
make arrangements for the vaccination against smallpox of all children attending school. It is expected that this will be done sometime within the next two weeks.
Following are extracts from the
letter received from the Provincial
Board of Health.
'British Columbia is threatened
with an epidemic of Smallpox. In
1922 there were 04 cases reported
in tlie Province; in 1923 there were
232; in .1924 there were 660; in
1925 to date, over 325, which if
continued at the same rate for the
balance of the year will mean from
1200 to 1500 cases, and the above
are only those cases which have
been reported."
The United States has placed an
embargo on everyone going into
the United States from Vancouver
where the greatest number of cases
are, and nobody can leave there
without being vaccinated. Such
a condition of affairs will mean an
enormous economic loss to the
Province owing to interruption of
transportation and disruption of
tourist traffic during the coming
We are enclosing you a copy of
the Smallpox Regulations and
would call your attention to
Sections 25, 26. 27. 28 and 29, and
would advise that you see that all
children are vaccinated, unless the
parents are conscientious objectors
to vaccination being done, as provided in Section 10 of the Health
Act, Chapter 102. R. S. 1924."
Should such objection be raised,
1 hen the parent will have to sign
an affidavit sworn to before a
Notary Public or Justice of the
Peace. But if a child of a conscientious objector has been exposed to Smallpox, while we do
not force vaccination, the child
must be excluded from school for
14 days. If they have been infected, then Smallpox will show
in that time.''
Shower Given to Anyox Bride
A surprise shower was held at
the home of Mrs. F. Teabo, on
Tuesday evening, in honor of her
daughter, Lucy, who was recently married to Mr. Stanley
Over forty ladies were present,
and the bride was the recipient of
:t large number of handsome and
useful presents. The house was
artistically decorated and an evening of merriment and mirth
followed the presentations. Supper
was served, and the jolly party
departed forborne around the hour
of midnight. The Anyox band
was in attendance, which added
greatly to the evening's enjoyment.
Of the total area of Canada,
950,(100 square miles (approximately one-quarter of the whole) is forest land. Less than half of this
carries timber of merchantable
size Hi inches in diameter) at the
present time, and only about one-
quarter carries saw material (10
inches in diameter,)
