Keystone Mining Coy.
Will Again Develop
The Keystone Mining Co. of
Seattle, who had a bond on the
Sunset property last fall, will again
develop the property. Mr. H. J
Bowyer, who will be in charge of
operations, arrived in Alice Arm
on Monday. He visited the property during the week and on his
return stated that the company,
was ready to go ahead with the
developing of the property.
Mr. Bowyer said that all indebtedness incurred by the company
last year would be cleared up and
a new start made. He said that
it was the intention of the company to extend the tunnel commenced last fall, an additional 100
feet and then drive crossouts ou
the ore. This work would have
been done this year, but on account
of the poor trail to the property,
it has been decided to pospone it
until next spring, when it is hoped
the trail will be repaired and supplies got through. Some work
will be done, however, this year,
and a small crew of men left mi
Thursday for this purpose. The
work in hand will occupy about
two weeks.
Should favorable results attend
the development work, a tramway
will be constructed, which will be
used for bringing in supplies and
shipping of ore. The tramway
will only need to be If miles in
length to connect the property
with tidewater. '■
H. J. Bowyer and C. C. Casey
have been appointed by the com-
upany to manage affairs, with the
former in charge of all work on the
property. Dr. Geo. T. Williams
still holds the position of president;
and H. M. Van Nuis retains the
office of secretary-treasurer.
Mr. Bowyer, who is a muoh
travelled mining man, with headquarters in Seattle, is enthusiastic
over the future prospects bf the
property, and is confident that the
Sunset will develop into' a steady
shipper of ore.
Asbestos Discovery at
Alice Arm by J.
The Alice Arm district contains
a larger variety of metallic ores
than are found in most mining
districts, and these ores are also in
bigger quantities than is the case
in most mining camps.
The latest addition to the list
of new minerals found in the dis-
district is a non-metallic one, and
is a discovery of asbestos found by
J. Strombeek some time ago.
.Specimens broken off from the
rook have been brought down, and
shows high grade asbestos free
from impurities and a long fibre.
Mr. Strombeok, who made the
discovery about a year ago, at the
head of Evindson Creek, kept it
secret until he could more thoroughly prospect the ground. This he
1 has done, and has arrived at the
conclusion that enough of the mineral is not in sight to make, the
development of it a finanoial success. It is found in bunches, and
the rough nature of the ground
would make it too expensive to
mine profitable.
The find was made on the edge
of a glaoier, a)nd it is probable that
some time in the future, when the
glaoier has disappeared that this
asbestos will be mined.

Geo. G. Bushby and
Hon. H. H. Stevens
Address Electors
The Conservatives brought their
heavy artillery into aotion during
the week when Hon. H. H.
Stevens, member for Vancouver
Centre at the House of Commons
during the last parliament, took
the platform at Alice Arm and
Anyox on Thursday. Geo. G.
Bushby, conservative candidate
for Skeena riding also Spoke.
Three meetings were held during
Thursday, the first being at Alice
Arm at 2,30 p.m., and two at
Anyox in the evening, one at the
Mine and the other at the Beach.
The Alice Arm meeting was
well attended, T. W. Falconer presiding. He introduced G. G.
Bushby, who spoke at considerable'
length, in which he said that
under Mackenzie King government
Canada was on the road to ruin.
He stated that there were thousands of millions of dollars lying
idle in Canada, that should be
working, but excessive taxation
prohibited it. In reviewing a curtailment of our expenditure he
said that the United States had
out their expenditures down 2 billion 500 million dollars per annum,
and was of the, opinion that
Canada should also cut her expenditures in proportion.
In regard to exportation of our
raw material to the United States,
he said that our logs were being
sent across to be manufactured into lumber, jour copper to he refined,
and our wheat is sent there to be
mixed with inferior grades, and
sold by Americans in the markets
of the world, being carried in
American ships. He said that we
exported $7,000,000 worth of
asbestos in tho raw state last year,
for manufacture in the United
The coal imports from the
United States also received-the attention of the speaker, who asserted that Canada imports $190,000,-
000 worth of coal each year from
the United States for the provinces
of Ontario and Quebec, and said
that instead of the Canadian
National Railway hauling tourists
they should haul this coal from
Alberta and Maritime provinces,
and keep the money in the country,
Mr. Bushby stated that we are
educating our boys and girls at a
big expense and sending them to
the United States, where they are
absorbed, and lost to Canada. He
said that previous to the enforce^
ment of the Fordney tariff, by the
United States, Canada exported to
that country $145,000,000 worth
of cereals and farm produce, and
in 1924 this had shrunk to $51,-
000,000, and claimed that if the
United States found protection so
profitable why did not Canada do
likewise. He was in favor of a
tariff high enough to protect our

Anyox Hospital
Ladies' Auxiliary
The Anyox Hospital Ladies'
Auxiliary hold an annual Hallo-
w'een dance, which is one of the
big affairs of the winter season.
A lot of people attend, have a
good time, and the Ladies' Auxiliary pass from the minds of most
of them until the next dance comes
around. One of main sources of
revenue of the Auxiliary is derived
from this annual dance, and in addition to having a good time, those
attending are supporting one of the
most worthy organizations in
Anyox. The ladies of the Auxiliary do their work without ostentation, and the inmates of the
Anyox Hospital, through . their
efforts, derive benefits they would
not otherwise obtain. The object
of the Auxiliary is to provide
extra comforts for the Hospital inmates. During the past year
or two they have provided a reading lamp, vases for flowers, easy
chair, and cushions for other chairs.
The also subscribe to various
magazines to provide reading material, and every Christmas' an entertainment is held, and a Christmas Tree provided so that those
unfortunate enough to be sick in
bed during this festive season,
shall not miss the Christmas spirit.
The Hallow'een dance this year
will be on a par with former
dances put on by the ladies of the
Auxiliary, and it is hoped to
establish a record attendance.
Alice Arm Mining
Although Alice Arm is somewhat quiet, due to many who
have completed their season's
work on their mining properties,
and left for nearby towns, where
they hope to make another stake
for next summer, it must be admitted that the future prospects of the
town were never brighter from a
mining standpoint, than they are at
the present time. A lot of valuable development work has been
done during the past season, and
thanks to the exceptionally fine
weather of the past few weeks
considerable work is still being
carried on. Not since the boom
days of the Dolly Varden has
such a large amount of development work been done. The
principal property to receive development work is the Toric.
Everyone is well aware of the
possibilities of this wonder mine,
and it is unquestionable but that this
property will be developed on a
large scale in the   near  future.
The Matilda is also showing
signs of developing into a big tonnage'producer, and the tunnel on
the La Rose ;is- expected1 to' encounter high grade ore at any time.
In addition to the abo*erheriti6ned
properties, work hasj and :'is;- still
being prosecuted on other "prop^
erties, the results of which" we
should benefit from in the near
future. It has been most gratifying during the past few months to
witness the increased number of
mining men who have visited the
camp, and others are expected in
before the season. This increase
is a sure sign that Alice Arm is
again coming to the front. A
number of those visiting the camp
represented influential mining companies of Canada, Great Britian,
and United States. They all
spent considerable time in the
camp and gathered valuable data.
We are now at a point where the
camp either takes an immediate
leap ahead, or stays quiet for a
few more years. We are of the
opinion that next summer will see
the development of the camp on a
scale larger than any year since
1920, but it is for everyone to
push the good work along and
leave no stone upturned in an
effort to attract capital into the
district. . -:

ALICE   ARM  AND  ANYOX  HERALD,  Saturday.   October 10,  1925
Rt. Hon. W. L. Maokenzie King
Premier King Has Said
"/ promise the  West impartial
justice and equal treatment"
His famous Order-in-Council is concrete evidence that he means to carry out this policy.   The
Order reads:
"The committee are of the opinion that the policy of equalization of freight rates should be recognized as
being the only means of dealing equitably with all parts of Canada, and as a means of encouragement of
industry and agriculture, and the development of export trade."
Contrast this policy with the statement of Mr. Meighen, which his followers—the Conservative Candidates—will be compelled to support by reason of the pledges of the Conservative Candidates in the East.   Meighen said:
"There has been a measure of relief for the west by means of equalization of freight rates, which is utterly indefensible."
There you have the policy as it will be applied to the West, of the two parties who now ask your
The policy of the Liberal Candidates is to populate the West. Population will come where it is profitable to lire. Open Canada's natural
trade routes to the world's markets, for the tremendous natural resources of tbe West. Equalize freight rates westward, and you will have turned tbe
key that unlocks the door to prosperity.
A definite example of what these discriminating freight rates are costing the west—as they effect the fruit growers of British Columbia— is
found in these figures: From Grimsby to Montreal, it is 390 miles, and the rate is 95c. per 100 pounds.
From Vernon to Calgary it is 340 miles, and the rate is $2.40 per 100 pounds.
The same discrimination is applicable to all lines of Western production. This is startlingly evident when you ascertain that in the six years
previous to 1921, the West contributed $174,000,000 net profit to the Canadian Pacific—while the East, with its greater population, contributed but
$81,500,000—less than half
You must decide whether the man you send to Ottawa shall be controlled by the Canadian Pacific Railway, and the interests of the East;
who, for narrow, selfish reasons are antagonistic to the West; or whether you will send a man to support a leader in the person of the Rt. Hon.
W. L. Mackenzie King, who believes he is serving the best interests of the whole Dominion by giving impartial justice and equal treatment to the west.

Fred Stork Addresses
Large Anyox
Messrs. P. Stork, member of
Skeena riding in the last parliament, and again liberal nominee
for this district, and Geo. Casey,
were introduced to the people of
Anyox who assembled in the
Recreation Hall on Friday last
week, by Mr. R. Mansser who acted as chairman for the meeting. Mr.
Manzer emphasized the fact that
he was quite unprepared to act
as chairman as he came to the
meeting with the idea of being
one of the audience, instead of that
he had only been approached a
a few minutes ago to act as chairman, before introducing the
speakers of the evening. The
chairman made a few remarks requesting those that were present,
to give the speaker every attention
possible, whatever your views or
your own political ideas maybe on
the subjects discussed.
Mr. Geo. Casey was then oalled
upon to address the audience, and
spoke at considerable length. He
was followed by Mr. Stork, who
gave a very instructive and interesting address, and was listened to
with rapt attention by a packed
house. He spoke on both national
and local topics. The address was
along the lines of his Alice Arm
address published in our last
week's issue.
An enthusiastic meeting was
also held at the Mine Hall on Saturday evening.

are commencing regular shipments
from their property on Copper
Not only will shipments coming

at Rossland will be treated.
It has been many months since
copper was produced here, but it is
expeoted that from now on the
well-equipped local plant will be
kept busy by the Allenby Copper
company with their shipments.
From 25 to 40 tons will be produced daily, and should the shipments from Copper mountain warrant it, an additional quantity can
be readily handled, as in past years
as many as five furnaoes have been
The refinery, where electrolytic
copper is produced, is in readiness
to receive the produce of the furnaoes.
Skeleton of Man Found
In Skeena River
Two Indians enroute from Port
Essington to Vanersdol in a canoe
last week had the misfortune to
have their canoe carried onto a log
jam, where it was smashed to
pieces. They barely escaped with
their lives, and did lose their personal belongings. About four
miles east of Salvus they landed
on a sandbar in the middle of the
river, where they found the complete skeleton of a man which had
evidently been lodged there for at
least a year. There was nothing
in the vicinity that would lead to
in'dentification, however, Upon
their arrival in Terrace the Indians reported the details of their
discovery to Constable Eggleshaw,
who is now conducting an investigation.

LUNCH counter cars which will
care for the needs of passengers in the colonist, first class
and tourist cars of the main line
trains; if they desire to patronize
them, are to be operated by the
Canadian National Railways for
the convenience of the travelling
public, and particularly of immigrants arriving in Canada. As an
experiment, lunch counter cars
- have been placed in service between Winnipeg and Toronto.
While these trains carry dining
cars and while the Canadian National Railways also have lunch
counters and restaurants at all divisional points, it is considered that
the lunch counter car will be a
great benefit to women travelling
with children and to others who
may be physically unfit or unable
to leave the train at stations he-
cause of severe weather, or for
other reasons.
The lunch counter has been fitted
up at one end of a steel colonist
car, where the best grade of tea
and coffee freshly made will be
served; Light meals comprising
cereals, sandwiches, pies, preserve-
fruits and other canned goods will
be available at Canadian National
standard lunch counter prices. A
competent and courteous attendant will be in charge of each lunch
counter and service may be secured
at any time during the day.
The suggestion of the lunch
counter cars was made by Mr.
Walter Pratt, .General Manager of
Dining, Sleeping and Parlor Cars
and of Hotels, who has been anxious to provide this facility to further improve travelling conditions
and add to the comforts of passengers on the Canadian National
Railways. **

Mine Club Desire to Share Honors
October 5th. 1025
The Editor,
Alice Arm and Anyox Herald,
Alice Ann, B. C.
Dear Sir:
At a meeting of the Mine Club
held last evening, the writer was instructed to communicate with you
anent a report appearing in your
valuable and widely read paper last
week, under the heading, "Community League will Provide Winter Entertainment'"
Regret was expressed by members of th e Club concerning the
following passages; "—the-Community League has successfully carried
through an elaborate programme of
baseball, football—This happy state of
affairs is due entirely to the work of
the Community League.—"
It is not our wish to deprive the
Community League of any credit
which is rightly clue that organization,
but to correct the impression that the
sports programme was successfully
carried through, due "entirely" to the
work of the Anyox Community
Towards the summers outdoor
sports of the community, the Mine
Club equipped, financed, managed
and successfully fielded both football
aud baseball teams at the cost of
over $110.00. It will be appreciated
that this was no mean undertaking
when it is learned that our chief
source o"f revenue is a monthly fee of
50c. each from a membership seldom
exceeding one hundred and fifty.
For the entertainment of the
members of this community, the
Aline Club also, is preparing, in addition to the usual social affairs, to
finance and enter senior, intermediate
and ladies' basketball teams into the
Basketball League,
Trusting you can find space to
publish the above, and thanking you
in anticipation, I am,
Yours very trulv,
The Mine Club.

quoted in the Smithers newspaper,
in regard to the Prince Rupert
grain elevator, and was of the
opinion that tlie Progressive party
should be credited with tho building of it. He said he had asked
every Bulkley valley farmer he met
while through there, whether any
grain would'be shipped to the elevator during the next three years
and they had all answered, No!
Hon. H. H. Stevens was the
next speaker. He proved to be a
finished orator, with a head full
of figures which he used profusely,
and drove his arguments home with
sledge hammer blows.
He stated that while this was
his first visit to this district he
was acquainted with Port Simpson 25 years ago, when on a prospecting trip from Vancouver. He
commenced by referring to the mining industry of the province and
stated that he had recently visited
the interior of the province, and
saw one dead mining camp after
another, and blamed this condition
of affairs to the heavy taxation
levied by the Federal and Provincial governments. He said taxation is stifling the mining industry throughout the province.
He said that the people of this
district were as directly interested
in the prosperity of the manufacturing, industry of the east as
were the shareholders in the companies, as the more prosperity for
the manufacturer the bigger the
demand for our metals.
He touched on provincial affairs
and said don't kid yourselves that
you won't have to pay for all public works done by the government,
because you do. He accused the
provincial government of squandering public money in order to elect
their candidates and cited various
Mr. Stevens said that' some
Brms in Vancouver are paying 31
different kinds of taxes, and said
its a load we can not carry much
In reviewing our natural resources he said that Canada
possesses 85 per cent, of tlie
world's nickel, all the cobalt, 85
per cent, of asbestos, and 51 per
cent, of the coal; in addition to
this we have 20,000,000. h.p. of
hydro-electric energy lying close to
civilization undeveloped. He said
there is something wrong, and it is
time we stopped mortgaging our
He accused the Laurier government of borrowing one-and-a-half
Be sure  the  name
Lcckie is on the Sole
billion, dollars to build needless
railwaj's, and said that that was
the golden age, but there comes a
time when we have to pay, and
the time is now. The speaker
went into details regarding our
debt to the United States and said
that last year we imported $128,-
000,000 worth of iron and steel
from that country, when we
should be manufacturing it in
Canada. The Steel Trust, he said,
sells their products cheaper in
Canada than the United States in
order, to stifle competition from
Canadian manufacturers. He in
stanced Great Britain as a country
who had lost her one time lead in
the production of iron and steel
and laid the fault to the free trade
policy in vogue in that country.
He said that in 12 years Canada
had dropped 50 per cent, in her
iron and steel production.
He accused the Mackenzie"
government of not practising
economy, of driving our population to the United States and said
the Conservative policy was
Canada first.
