Development Tunnel Is
Being Driven on Success
Property
Among the properties being developed this year in the vicinity of
Alioe Arm is the Sucoess group of
olaims. This property is located
on the hill west of the town and at
a distance of only If miles.
The Success comprises seven
claims and is owned by J. A. Mo-
Dermaid, W. A. Wilson, J. A. Wilson, C. Williams and J. O'Hara.
who grouped their individual olaims
into one property.
Two strong ore ledges have been
proven on this property. One of
which is two feet wide, and on
which considerable surface stripping lias been done.
The other ledge is muoh wider
the exact width having not yet
been ascertained on the surface. A
tunnel is being driven on this ledge
in order to encounter the ore at
depth. This tunnel has been driven for a distance of 30 feet and
work is being carried on. The ore
is composed of galena and also carries copper. It is expeoted that
gold value will also be obtained. A
first class cabin was recently built
on the property.
Owing to its close proximity
to the town, the value of the property will be considerable enhanced
as soon as ore is encountered underground, as the cost of getting the
ore to the wharf would be neglible.
School girls turned in good performances while Mrs. Cody and
Mrs. Dwyer were the pick of the
losers.   Bert Hogben refereed.

Stewart Women Committed for Trial in
Connection with
Murder
Facing a charge of murder,
Gladys Gale and Ruby Dolan appeared in the local police court,
defended by R. W. Kennedy, of
Whiteside & Kennedy, before Stipendary Magistrate Scarlett, in the
preliminary hearing in connection
with the fatal shooting of James N.
Donald in a house on 2nd. street in
Stewart. William Spiller, Inspector of provincial Police for Northern
B. 0- prosecuted on behalf of the
Crown he and Sergent A. McNeill
of the Provincial Police ooming
from Prince Rupert for that purpose, the latter being a Crown
witness.
Charles Bibeau repeated his
evidence given at the Coroner's
inquiry. Questioned by Mr. Kennedy he said he had known Jas.
Donald since 1908, and that they
were very friendly;- that while at
times he was a very fine type of a
man, at other times he was very
troublesome. Witness admitted
that about six weeks ago he had
been called to the house of Gladys
Gale by Ruby Dolan, for the purpose of quieting Donald, who was
quarreling with Gladys Gajg^and
threatening her. Asked if Tj_£,:8~»
thought Donald at that time
was dangerous, he admitted that
he did. Other than bringing out
this evidence and a few other
points, Mr. Kennedy made no
defence reserving this for the
higher court.
Magistrate Scarlet, in summing
up the case, stated that as no evidence had been submitted by the

In a recent issue of the Daily
Province, a review of the mining
industry for the past year was
given of every mining district in
the province. This report was
issued by Hon. Wm. Sloan, Minister of Mines.
The article commenced with a
description of the mining activity of
the North-western district, and
except for a brief mention of the
Engineer mine at Atlin, dealt ex-
clusivly with mining conditions in
the Stewart district.
Although Anyox possesses the
largest copper mine and smelter in
the British Empire and last year's
production was a record no mention
of it whatever was made.
Alice Arm was completely ignored although last year was one of
the most successful in recent years
from a development standpoint.
Here is something the Alice
Arm Branch of the B. C. Chamber of mines should investigate, or
is that organization dead and
buried. Judging from the support
received at the last meeting it
should be a most active organization.
Every district throughout the
province is boasting of its summer
*ke weather, prevailing in January.
Vancouver has its butterflys fluttering around. Terrace gardens
boast of primroses and clover, and
Prince Rupert its roses. News is
now being anxiously awaited of
oranges being gathered at Dawson.
The news that Mr. A. J. T.
Taylor, who as head of the Taylor
Engineering Co. and the Taylor
Mining Co. who operated at one
time the Dolly Varden Mine, has
received an appointment in England
will not cause any grief to Alice
A. J. T. Taylor of Dolly
Varden Fame, Goes
to London
Many executives of Canadian
linns have been drawn from
the big industries of England and
Scotland, but seldom have any of
those industries looked to Canada
for leadership, so more than usual
interest attaches to the announcement of the appointment of a
Canadian as managing-director of
tlie Underfeed Stoker Co. Limited,
a firm of thirty-five years' repute
as the largest iu. the British
Empire in their particular line.
Alfred J. T. Taylor of Toronto,
president of the Combustion Engineering Corporation Limited,
lias been offered and has accepted
the position of chief executive of
the Underfeed Stoker Co. Limited,
London, and will begin his new
duties pn Maroh 1. He will sail
from New York on the Aquitania
on February 20.
Mr. Taylor was born in Victoria
in 1887, and after engaging in
various enterprises, he organized
the Taylor Engineering Co. In
1917 this company arranged with
the Dolly Varden Mines Co. to construct a railroad from the beach to
the mine on a cost plus ten per
cent'basis. A dispute arose regarding expenditure and the
property, railroad, etc. was awarded to the Taylor Engineering Co.
by a Special Act of the Legislature.
The Taylor Co. took possession of
the property on June 10th. 1919
and closed it down in December
1920. After taking out 1,639,(500
ozs, silver and this was at a time
when silver was worth over a
dollar an ounce. The Taylor Co.
has been blamed for incompetence
in regard to its operation, and the
close-down was a blow from which
the district is only commencing
to recover.
Arm people over his departure
from Canada. Alice Arm would
probably have fared much better
if Mr. Taylor had decided to
reside in England ten years ago.

R.K. Neil Tells How He
Opened Up Famous
Premier Mine
Says
Premier  Was   Pretty
Good Little Mine
R K. Niel, of Portland, assooiat-
I ed with W. R. Wilson, A. B. Trites
and LI. W. Wood in the Premier
Mine, gave an interesting talk on
the early history of that property
at the annual banquet of the North
West Mining Association held in
Spokane recently.   He said: "Not
all tlie good mines are gone.,   Iii
I 25 years I have'passed over many
I good prospects.   The price and sit-
I nation were against them at the
I time,
, "There will he plenty of good
prospects when we are dead, They
always will he found. Three of the
greatest mines I developed were
turned down. In the Cour d'Alenes
I spent $8,000, and in the lirst
thirty days took out enough ore to
pay off all obligations. That was
I the Hecla.
"The Kendall Mine in Montana,
was small, but it yielded  a lot of
i money.   Look the prospects over
carefully.   That is one of the se-
I crets of success in mining.
"A pretty good little mine was
J the Premier.    (The Company has
disbursed   eight  million in div'i-
1 dends.)   It was there for anyone
to take. • I went in there to look at
another property when I heard of
it.    T  proceeded  oarefnlly in  the
first examination.    After that  I
spent live days looking over' the |
Pj'oinier.    It   was fourteen miles
,|ji '.n,;isportation.    I was told
% ifow   was fifty-four feet
d'"   - ^iP fall.   I commenced to
get cold feet.
"The price, for the Premier
seemed reasonable enough—$150,-
' 000. I'm a kind of a Jew. I
jewed them down to $100,000 and
got six years in which to pay it.
I figured I could find out with
$5,000 if there was a mine there.
1 I spent $4,000 and blocked out
$3,000,000. I felt encouraged to
build a road. It took three years
to do it. The seasons are short.
Then it was a horse trail, wide
enough to admit the passage of a
twenty-inch sled and cost $,7,000.
But before building the trail I had
$7,000 worth of ore sacked to pay
I for it.
tin tlie next winter I hauled
$54,000 worth of ore and put that
into a road the next summer. I
I (chartered a steamship and brought
in horses, dogs and camp equipment. On the next morning
after unloading from the scow I
was confronted with 17 feet of
snow. A month was ocoupied in
going from Stewart to the mine.
Rain fell the next, 17 days and then
Isnow fell. In the spring I shipped
184 dry tons of ore, worth $112,000
[to the Tacoma smelter.
"I opened the mine by watching
Ithe dollars.    I   cooked,   washed
lishos, sharpened the   steel   and
|t:ept my own books, when there
'as no one else to do these things.
___ J not done these things  I
sould have broken my associates.
,  "A fault of mining is that some
m the men in it do not know how
;o spend money.    Ninety per cent
|)f the money is wasted.    Ten per
:ent goes into the ground.    Some

New Record Made For
Last Year In Mineral
Production
Mineral   Output   For   Last
Year Exceeds Sixty Million
Dollars
British Columbia's mineral production in 1925 broke all records
for animal output, according to
figures made public by Hon. Wm.
Sloan, Minister of Mines.
In a statement showing the estimated value of the production of all
metals and coal for the twelve
months ending December 31st.,
John D. Galloway, Provincial Mineralogist, places the value of the
product of the mines of British
Columbia for the year 1925 at $61,-
491,600 as a conservative figure, as
compared with a total of $48,704,-
604 in 1924, showing an increase
this year over the previous year of
$12,786,896, or 26.2 per cent.
It is interesting to note said Mr.
Sloan, that tlie mineral industry of
British Columbia has steadily in--
creased with but a few yearly setbacks. Thirty years ago in 1895,
the province only produced minerals to the value of $5,654,042, and
even ten years ago, in 1915, the
production was less than half that
of the present year, being only
$29,447,508.
"The year 1925 has, however,
been an important one, not only
for a record production, but also
for the large amount of development, exploration and prospecting,
that has been carried out. Production in any one year is largely
tbe result of previous development,
so that to have a healthy industry,
development and prospecting must
keep pace with production.
'In the year 1925 it may be conservatively said that a greater
amount of real development has
been done than in any previous
year in the history of the province,
and much of this development has
been done satisfactory in adding
substantial new ore reserves to the
industry.
A large number of prospeots
have been bought or optioned and
more or less development work
done on them. Prospecting has
been fairly active and some new
discoveries have been reported.
The movement which has taken
place in acquiring and developing
prospects which have lain dormant
for years, will be a great incentive
to stiil further prospecting next
year."
Plain Speaking by Premier
Oliver In Vancouver
' What the province needs is a
million new people imbued with
industry and thrift possessed by
the early pioneers of Ontario,"
Premier Oliver declared in addressing a banquet of the Associated
Property Owners. "The greatest
need today is home seekers and
home builders."
The premier said it would be
difficult to convince him that it
was taxation that was keeping
British Columbia back, when people were paying into the coffers of
the province a million dollars
monthly for luxuries that caused
them more harm than good.

the report of Col, S. Maynard

come so bold that they break into
cottages and camps for food and
have to be destroyed. Photographs
