Silver Crest Co. Proving
Up Mine on Saddle
The Silver Crest Mining Co.,
who for the past two seasons have
been developing the Saddle property on Hastings Arm with such
unusual success are proceeding rapidly with the construction of the
aerial tramway, and are also pushing development work at the mine.
It is expected that the tramway will
be in operation in about sixty days.
This work is in charge of A. Knox
formerly construction superintendent for the Granby Co.
At the mine, nine miners are at
work drifting on the ore vein on
which a shaft was sunk last year.
This drift was commenced at a
point 900 ft. south from the shaft
and will give a depth on the ore ot
200 ft. below the vein outcrop.
The vein is well defined, being 5
feet between walls, and is well mineralized with galena and zinc sulphides.
The showings in the tunnel look
very good and the ore will be followed for a distance   of  900  ft.,
which will then be under the   shaft
sunk last year.
A raise will then be driven to the
surface, and the blocking out of ore
commenced. The future of the
Saddle looks very promising.
The members of the Vancouver
Board of Trade are again this year
taking their annual excursion up
the northern coast. This year they
will visit points on the west coast
of Vancouver Island which was not
included last year.
They are scheduled to arrive in
Alice Arm on Sunday August 26th.
at 12 noon and leave at 10 p.m. A
large number will make the trip up
the Dolly Varden railway visiting
the Toric mine. A number, however will probably desire to spend
the day around town.
Everyone is requested to be on
hand to welcome the visitors and to
mingle freely with them, imparting
as much information as possible
regarding our mineral wealth.
Surveying Town  Lots
On Indian Reserve
The surveying of the Indian Reserve at Alice Arm will be completed this year. Mr. F. Butter-
field, who has the work in hand has
commenced this week sub-dividing
that part on which a portion of the
town of Alice Arm is located.
sj, All the land west of the Kitsault
river will be subdivided into lots.
On the east side of the river a part
will" be surveyed into lots and
the balance will be surveyed into
acreage of various sizes.
Roads are being located so that
the moving of houses already built
on the reserve will be mitigated as
much as possible.
The Reserve joins the townsites
of the Alice Arm Mining and Development Co., and the Alice Arm
Freighting Co., and roads are
planned to connect with existing
roads on these townsites.
Although the surveying of the
Reserve will be completed this year
it is not expected that lots will be
available for purchase until next
spring. Everyone will then have
an opportunity to own a piece of
ground, and erect a permanent
It is expected that those owning
houses will be given the first opportunity to purchase ground occupied
by the building.
J. E. Umbach, provincial-surveyor-general, arrived at Alice Arm on
Saturday and left on Monday. His
visit was in connection with the
surveying of the Indian Reserve,
which is now being carried on.

open cuts were also driven across
the ledge. The work was done by
Tony and Joe Calfa, both of whom
have an interest in the property.
Close prospecting also revealed a
new ore ledge, which was traced on
the surface for a distance of 800
feet. The width is extensive, open

Alice   Arm   Ores
Win Four
Alice Arm ores captured four
prizes at the Vancouver exhibition,
three 1st. prizes and one second.
This was done in the face of fierce
competition from the whole pro
vince, and shows conclusively that
Alice Arm ranks among the best
mining camps of B. C. O. Evindson, president of the local Chamber of Mines received a wire to this
effect yesterday.
The prizes are as follows: First
prize for zinc-lead ore won by the
Kitsault-Eagle Silver Mines Ltd.
who are developing the Silver-Cord,
Eagle and Sunrise.
First prize for molybdenum, won
by Tidewater Molybdenum, and
owned by G. W. Bruggy and Wm.
First prize for tungsten ore, won
by tbe Esperanza Mining Co. own>
ers of the Esperanza mine, which is
also a silver producer.
Second prize for native silver ore
won by the Wolf mine, and owned
by J. Fiva and associates.
It should thrill everyone with
pride when they realize the importance of winning four prizes in a
competition against the best ores
the province conltT produce, espec
ially when it is taken into consider
ation that many camps are more
fully developed and therefore able
to send a much larger exhibit.
For the two previous years Alice
Arm ores secured more prizes than
any other camp in the province and
the same thing appears to have'
happened again this year, thanks
to the local branch of the Chamber
of Mines.

a prize of $50.00 for largest membership of any branch in the province. It was also shown that the
total cost of entertaining the Vancouver Board of Trade   last year
was $84.55
The secretary read a letter from
the Vancouver Board of Trade stating that they would visit Alice Arm
on their trip north, arriving on
Sunday August 26th. at 12 noon
and leaving at 10 p.m. A letter

Esperanza  Co.  Starts
Work Hydro-Electric
Work was commenced this week
by the Esperanza Mining Co. on
their new hydro-electric power
plant. The work now being undertaken is the construction of a dam
on Falls Creek and the building of
a race.
The site of the dam is 1600 feet
distant from the Dolly Varden railway., The location of the power
house is undecided.
The installation of the power
plant will be undertaken as quickly
as possible, and its completion will
enable the company to mine a much
larger tonnage of ore than heretofore and also expediate development work. The power plant will
consist of a 100 h.p. generator and

Large   Crowd   Enjoys
Big Dance
The biggest dance of this or any
other season in the history of Alice
Arm was held at T. W. Falconer's
hall on Saturday evening. It is estimated that from 120 to 140 people
were present. Large numbers arrived from Anyox in addition to
those spending holidays here, and
the spacious floor was crowded to
capacity dancing to the delightful
music of the Alice Arm Orchestra.
Following an appetising repast
at midnight, for the excellence of
which the ladies responsible are due
much praise, Dick Bennett of Anyox
rendered a solo, entitled, "Lay my
Head Beneath the Rose". He received thunderous applause. Wm.
Stephens accompanied him on the
The Orchestra to whom a large
portion of the evening's success was
due, were: W. Stephens, piano;
C. Hutchinson, clarinet; S. Jones,
saxophone; F. Butterfield and
Lome Falconer, violins; E. Aubusson, traps and drums.
Assessor Looks Over Towns
C. H. Homer, provincial assessor
spent a few days in Alice Arm during the week, interviewing those
who had failed to make income tax
returns, and gathering other useful information, also listening to
complaints, which is something
unescapable in his line of business. ALICE  ARM   AND  ANYOX   HERALD,   Friday.    August   if    1928

Hopes for Definite Plans
Re Stewart Railway
The Stewart railway scheme
put forward hy H. H. Stevens
early in the summer is still heing
discussed and there are people
who profess that the scheme will
eventually develop into a real railway, with possibly the C. P. R. as
the chief force behind it. That
company has made thorough surveys of the country and it is understood they still have plans for
connecting up the northern prairie
country with the coast at Portland Canal.
Before leaving for the East Hon.
H. H. Stevens, M. P., Vancouver,
made a statement respecting the
situation of the Canadian North
Eastern Railway from Stewart.
He announced that within a
month or two there might be definite plans forthcoming for the building of the line into Northern British Columbia.
Acquired by the Vancouver
Holdings, the C. N. E. Railway is
now backed by London capitalists,
according to Mr. Stevens.
Stobie-Forlong Co. To Open

Premier Co. May Run
Custom Mill
Evidently the Premier Gold
Mining Co. expect to continue to
operate for many years to come,
judging by the excellent new
buildings, now about completed,
which will take the place of those
destroyed by (ire months ago.
The substantial character of the
structures suggest that possibly
the company will operate on a
larger scale than ever, and to some
extent strengthen the report that

Lumber companies report the
greatest volume of business in Alberta since the boom year of 1912.
One hundred million feet of lumber
Is being cut in Alberta this year but
the bulk of the supplies come from
British Columbia mills.
A press report from Telfordvllle
states that the farmers are well
pleased with toe allocation of stations on the twenty mile extension
to the Hoadley subdivision of the
Canadian Pacific Railway. A large
number of settlers are going into
the territory which will be served
by this extension and the old timers
ln the district are now clearing and
breaking as much land as possible.
Kyohei Kato, who represent* a
Tokio concern, and who has Just
concluded a business mission to
Canada, stated that he had bought
8,000,000 bushels of wheat in Canada, or about half of Japan's totail
Importations. He explained that
Japan got more for its rice than
Canadian wheat cost in their market, henw the present purchase.
He said, too, that Japanese were
eating more wheat foods and adapting themselves to the stronger diet.
"The Maritime ProviMes in particular, and Canada in general, need
more commercial advertising," was
the opinion expressed by Hon. J. B.
M. Baxter, Prime Minister of New
Brunswick, when interviewed on
arrival on board the "Empress ol
Scotland" after a month's visit to
Europe. British settlers in the
Marltimes have been quite satisfactory as regards type and quality,
he said, and he hoped that we will
be able to obtain a great many
more spread over a period of years.
Part of a litter of eight red foxes,
which, together with the vixen,
were captured in the .Areola district recently, have been brought
to Moose Jaw by Mr. W. White, who
has established a fox farm east of
this city. It is many years since
red fox have lived at large in their
natural state in the southern part
of this province, where these were
captured. Mr. White intends to
start raising patch foxes, a cross
between red and silver or black
fox, as a commercial enterprise.
Wool growing ln Western Canada
ie increasing rapidly, according to
W. W. Thomson, manager of the
western branch of the Canadian
Co-operative Wool Growers Limited. Up to June 30th., he pointed
out, four carloads of wool had left
Regina for Weston, Ontario, (for
grading by Government authorities) as compared with one for the
similar half year of 1927. This
year's shipments represent 108,000
lbs. from 300 flocks in the provinces.

this tar compound, and two large
heating tanks for melting it prior
to spraying on the road. The barrels are now being hauled by the
Crawford Transfer Co. and oft-
loaded near the ball ground ready

The new group consists of nine
claims lying  between   the Indep-
dence and the Dalhousie, and is
now called the "A & T". It extends from the foot of the mountain at the railway track, up to
the summit. The vein was found
above timber line amongst a series of precipices and narrow benches whioh make preliminary prospecting rather precarious, The
owners, however, have put in some
ropes, and are cutting steps which
will eliminate the danger. Mr.
Tooth has traced the vein for 300
feet along its strike and his hammer and pick samples show values of 6% copper, 60c. in gold and
$1.00 in silver. The vein is a big
one, how big has not yet been determined.
