Rules Made Governing
Anyox Basketball
First steps in organizing basketball for the coming year were taken
on Wednsday night at a well attended meeting of those interested.
Chas. Harmon, who was the only
candidate who allowed his nomination to stand, assumes the presidency. Mr. V. S. McRae is vice-president and R. J. Manning has
accepted the burden of the secretaryship. The meeting voted to
abolish the board of former years.
After some debate and voting on
conflicting amendments to the constitution, it was decided to insist
upon registration of players twenty-
four hours before the game. Another
change prevents intermediate' players from playing senior even once
without losing their intermediate
standing. Limitation of the senior
division to four teams was decided
upon. This does not please those
who still think of a basketball team
as being composed of only five
players, but it was felt that the
smaller number of teams would insure extra players for all. In anticipation of disagreements the meet
ing decreed that protests must be
lodged within twenty-four hours.
A ground rule to the effect that the'
ball may be bounced oft the ceiling
was adopted. For the rest Spalding's Rules will be enforced, and
the pious hope was expressed that
the players would get rule books
and read them. As yet little is
known concerning prizes. Until the
schedule is drawn up players may
practise on, Monday, Wednesday,
Friday, Saturday, and Sunday evenings.
Ore Reserves of Tiger Greatly Increased
When Ore Struck at 415 Ft. Depth
Ore was encountered in the  No. J approaching a record for any pro-
3 tunnel at the Tiger during the
week. It was struck at a distance
of 200 feet from the portal, and is
composed of high grade silver ore,
typical of the Tiger. Ore was not
expected to be encountered until an
additional 50 feet had been driven,
and it is considered that it is a new
ore body. The point at which the
ore was encountered gives a depth
of 415 feet below the surface out-
Tbe comparative ease in locating
this ore at a depth of 415 feet is the
outstanding event in mining development since the big ore body was
encountered on its neighbor the
Latest reports from the mine
state that the ore has been driven
into for a distance of two feet, and
crosscutting is still proceeding.
Ore has now been developed on
three levels on the Tiger,  which is
perty, as development was not
commenced until July of this year.
Previous to the taking over of the
Tiger, however, by the Utility Mines
No. 1 Ltd., nine diamond drill
holes were driven, seven of which
encountered ore.
The successful exploratory underground work of the past few months
and especially of the past week,
indicates for the Tiger a large tonnage of ore, much of which will
probably be of a high grade
The management therefore feel
that a lower tunnel is justified.
With this aim in view a site for a
new lower tunnel has been chosen,
and it will encounter the ore body
at a depth of over 800 feet. Work
on this tunnel is to start immediately. It will be commenced on the
old Dolly Varden railway grade.
An interesting feature is that the
big ore body of the Toric, which
joins the Tiger on the south, is still
400 feet lower elevation than
the present lower tunnel on the
The aggressive manner which the
Utility Mines No. 1 Ltd. is pursuing in developing the Tiger, and
the phenominal success attained
has been conducive of much favorable local comment. The company
has disposed of considerable stock
in Anyox and this week, people of
Alice Arm, also secured a large
quantity of stock.
The main bunkhouse at the mine
is now practically completed, and
clearing and grading is proceeding for the other buildings.
Powder and supplies of all kinds
are now going in for winter use.
Operations are in charge of A.
Knox, who has a wide experience,
and who was formerly construction
superintendent for the Granby Co.
Badminton Club Will be Hosts
On Thursday
The bad,minton club will be hosts
to all members of the Community
League who are at all interested in
the game on Thursday, Nov. 8th
beginning at 7.30 p.m. Refreshments will be served to those who
attend. Bring a pair of gym shoes.
Someone will lend you a racquet.
The Club supplies the shuttles.
The gym is reserved for badminton
on Tuesday and Thursday nights
from 7 to 10.30. A good deal of
playing is done throughout the
day. Come on Thursday and prove
to yourself the attractiveness of the
Among the many lovely .gifts to
Miss Thelma Deeth, whose marriage takes place this evening, are
those of the members of the Pioneer
Mess who have given the bride a
handsome set of table silver and
cheque for a substantial sum.
Among the arrivals from the south
on Saturday, were:   W. R. Buck-
nell, N.  F. Coke,  Bob Scott,   R.
I Smith, Mr. Horsfall, Roy Gorman,
' F. Gillan, F. F. Clark.
All Supplies for Winter
Taken to Toric Mine
Preparations for the operating
of the Torio mine throughout the
winter are proceeding apace. All
food supplies for both men and
horses have been freighted to the
mine from Camp 8. Sufficient
gasoline for the winter has also
gone iu. Fuel oil for power purposes is at present being taken in,
and on the return trip concentrates are brought down.
Over 1000 sacks of concentrates
are now landed on the government
wharf awaiting shipment. It is
probable that these will be,shipped
south on Monday.
A barn is now in course of con
struction at Spring Camp. This
will be used as a half-way base
during  the winter when   sleighs
are in use.
All lumber has been cut locally at
the Al. Falconer sawmill for putting
railway bridges for sleighs. This
work will be undertaken on the
completion of the barn at Spring

The affair was arranged by a committee of ladies comprising Mrs.
Kirby, Mrs. Eve, Mrs. Dunn, Mrs.
Barclay, Mrs. Varnes, Mrs. Scott,
Mrs. Kent, and Miss Margaret
O'Neil, and Miss Lottie Pilling.
Over one hundred ladies were present when Miss Deeth, to whom
the proceedings were altogether a
surprise, was led into a darkened
room and, when the lights came on,
beheld a sailing ship laden with
nearly two hundred useful gifts.
After the inspection of presents refreshments were served. For the
dance which concluded the even
ing, the Peele brothers and friends
volunteered an orchestra whose
performance evoked great praise.
Thanks due also to the Oddfellows
Lodge for the use of the hall and
to the following guests who sang
or played: Mrs. Pinckney, Mrs.
Anderson, Mrs. Dunn, Mrs. .McKay and Mr. W. F. Aylward.
Drifting on Homeguard
Develops Good Ore
Spectacular specimens of high
grade ore brought down during the
week from the Homguard, is concrete evidence of the mineral wealth
of this well known property. The
specimens were taken from the
drift now being driven on the big
silver-gold ledge.
This ledge has now been traced
by stripping on the surface for a
distance of over 600 feet.
Underground work is being push
ed as rapidly as possible.

Alice Arm & Anyox Herald:
Dear Sir:
A topographical survey of the
Kitsault valley and country adjacent to Alice Arm has just been
completed by Mr. Bartlett and
crew working for the Dominion
Government. This survey being
accurate it will be put on the maps
as permanent geography. Names
will be given to the streams and
mountains and will be so recorded.
The Dominion Geographical Board
follows the policy of letting local
names stick where they are fitting
and applicable. Mr. Bartlett will
designate the local streams and
mountains by the names given
them by Mr. Turnbull of the Provincial Mines Department, he being
the first to get out a sketch map
of the district. But it is very
certain that very few of these
names will go on the new map, and
other names will be given the
streams and mountains.
The streams and mountains have
native Indian names, and as it is
iu keeping with the Dominion
Geographical Board to give preference to these where applicable,
tlie Indian names and their meaning of several of the streams and
mountains of the country surveyed
are herewith given. In giving
these names no ethnological accuracy is maintained as to their
spelling nor are they marked dia-
critically as to tlieir pronunciation.
They arc given as they sound, and
are probably divided into syllables
Beginning with streams we find
that Kitsault means 'head of Inlet
from inside mountains'. Falls
Creek is Tcha-las-mach, which has
the Indian meaning of water falls.
The mountain at the head of Falls
creek has the name of 'Tcha-las-
niach' chmach meaning bear, tlie
whole meaning 'holes in ice on
mountain like hear.' Canyon
Creek is Gun-yet meaning 'distance
spring salmon go.' Granite Creek
is Gun-git-1 meaning 'where sock
eye turn red'. Paul Klayduc
creek will probably retain its
name and likely the mountain to
the north of it will take the name
of the creek. North East Fork is
Chih-hdan meaning 'salmon guts
going down'. The story being
that this was the only stream
hero where fish could be caught
with hooks. Illiance river is Che-
e-lel-ish-a-inus meaning coming
from Naas divide, like Naas, that
is dark muddy glacial water.
Here it might be added the Naas
is Lish-a-mus, 'muddy dark water'
Carribou Creek is Check-walk-chit
meaning 'black or brown water'.
Bowman Lakes and their outlet
the Tchitteen river are not known
to the Indians as Tchitteen. They
are called Ch-h-imain-ok, ain-ok
meaning grease-box. The story
being that once a box of grease was'
buried near the bank of the stream
the stream rising washed tlie box
down river, hence the meaning,
'stream that grease box washed
down. Quartzite peak is known
as Low-ge-ou-at-gut meaning middle mountain. Theopolis is called
Gintl-g-ait-sa meaning place for
killing animals, good hunting
ground. The Red Bluffs are called
A-nchlt-em-ait meaning place for
eating berries. The story being
that cooking berries could be found
on the Hats but good eating berries
could be found only at Red Bluffs.
Creeks whose names will very
likely be changed are Falls Creek,
Canyon Creek, Granite Creek,
North East Fork and Caribou
Mountains receiving new names
likewise, will be the one at head of
Falls Creek, Haystack, and Quartzite. Theopolis may be retained,
although he is a long way from
Should anyone have any suggestions for the permanent names of
these streams or mountains or are
interested the Chamber of Mines
would gladly take the matter up
with the Dominion Geographical
Board in the matter of having the
wishes of the camp complied with.

Copper Industry of The
Province Expanding
Says Report
A report published by the Minister of Mines, Hon. W. A. McKenzie, shows that the copper mining
industry of the province was never
in such a flourishing condition as at
the present time. New properties
are being developed in addition to
increased tonnage mined from the
older ones. Following is a portion
of the report, dealing with copper
Victoria, B. C. Oct.27—Copper
has been the outstanding feature of
market stability during 1928, insofar as British Columbia is concerned
and production for the year generally will show an advance upon 1927.
During the first six months the
position of lead and zinc, two leaders in provincial output, was distinctly unfavorable; the situation
latterly has much improved as to
lead, and cause now is indicated
that zinc too will soon be on its old
footing. As to copper, while few
would have dared predict that it
would touch the 15-cent mark, the
fact is established that world demand has so surprisingly boosted
prices that copper now is virtually
back to a pre-war basis of London
and New York quotations. This
means especially much to Canada's
Pacific province, although the importance of the other base metals
cannot be discounted, particularly
having regard to Consolidated's
production. Until late years,
bringing lead and zinc conspicuously
forward, copper was the foundation
of British Columbia mining, emphasized by the positions of Granby
and Britannia in their respective
operations. Copper still holds
premier place and the demand for
copper is the barometer of prosperity or adversity for the mining
industry in British Columbia.
Copper production in British
Columbia has climbed from 56,918-
405 lbs. in 1916 to 89,202.871 lbs.
last year, this advance being accomplished despite price fluctuations
and declines to a point at which
continuance operations seemed only
possible with considerable loss.
Fortunately,through metallurgical
improvements and rigid economies
at Britannia, Granby and Trail,
they all have kept the flags Hying
and carried on, and it would now
seem certain will enjoy their reward.
It is interesting to analyse the
probable result should present demand for copper hold without low
ering the price level. Certainly

Expanding Says Report
Continued from Page 2
Granby and Britannia will be in a
better position than for years past,
and Britannia now is handling
5,000 tons of ore daily. Operations
at Allenby (Copper Mountain) also
have been pushed until substantial
production there is now shewn.
The Consolidated is opening up
Coast Copper near Quatsino and
the Sunloch on Jordan River, giving notable impetus to mining on
Vancouver Island; and if favorable conditions are maintained,
both these promising properties
will be shipping during the oncoming year. As to Portland Canal
properties in which Consolidated
lAtely has become interested, not
much more oan as yet safeley be
said than that they are very promising prospects and, should economic ore be proven in sufficient
volume, they too will be put on a
shipping basis with minimum time
The compelling feature of British Columbia's mining situation as
1929 looms on the horizon is the
marked development under way of
provincial copper properties. There
has never before been such general
interest evinced or confidence iu
copper been so well established.
Amply financed developments are
under way in the Portland Canal
zone, all along the Grand Trunk
Pacific line, in the Peace River
sphere, in Cariboo, the Kootenays,
Boundary district and on Vancouver Island and southerly Mainland

Henry Browning Enters
Brokerage House. Has
Wide Experience
Henry Browning secretary of the
British Columbia Chamber of Mines
since 1922 and the man whom President Frank Woodside and other
officials give the most of the credit
for the success of the organization,
has resigned. He will enter the
service of Lennard, Poisson, &
Waghom Ltd. as mining statistician
and general office manager. Mr.
H. N. Freeman, assistant secretary
of the chamber, was appointed acting secretary at a meeting of the
executive on FYiday night. Mr.
Browning's appointment to his new
.post presages extensive development by his new employers in general mining investments, following
the completion of their new building
at the corner of Pender and  Howe.
Few men have had a more extensive training in mining than Mr.
Browning. In earlier years he was
engaged in gold mining in Nevada.
Later he was secretary of the Duck-
town Sulphur and Iron Company of
Tennessee. Coming to British
Columbia, he was purchasing agent
and general assistant manager of
the B. C. Copper Company of
Greenwood. Later he was purchasing agent and assistant secretary of the Canadian Collieries Duns-
muir Ltd. at Victoria and also served in the general offices of the company at New York. His next
venture in the mining field was as
one of the executives of the Dolly
Varden silver mines in the Alice
Arm district.
Mr. Browning has had business
experience in London and South
America. His first enterprise after
leaving London was in the cattle
business at Buenos Aires, from
which centre he shipped cattle to
the English market. As secretary
of the British Columbia Chamber of
Mines, the mining fraternity generally admits that Mr. Browning's
faithful work and wide knowledge
of mining conditions have been of
unusual benefit to the province.
