Two Important Alice
Arm Ore Discoveries
Several important ore discoveries
have been made during the week
in the Alice Arm district, These
discoveries are not "promoters
strikes," but have been made during development work by the
owners of different properties, and
will stand investigation.
Welcome news comes from the
Alice property that a high grade
vein of silver ore six inches wide
has been encountered, at a depth
of about fifty feet, and a distance
of about 5b' feet from tlie portal of
the tunnel. Specimens of the ore
brought to town are magnificent
specimens, and contain brittle and
ruby silver, also galena and zinc
ore. The Alice is owned by a
number of Anyox residents. It
joins the Esperanza, and the location of the discovery is about 3000
feet from the Esperanza workings.
On the Riverside No. 2 an ore
discovery has been made that may
place that property among the producing mines at an early date A
sample of ore recently taken from
a dyke gave assay returns of $12.00
in gold per ton. This dyke is three
feet wide and can be traced on the
surface for a long distance. It
cuts an ore vein from which
samples have been taken giving returns of 13 ozs. silver and $6.50 iii
gold per ton.
The Riverside No. 2 is located on
Granite creek, in the Kitsault
valley, about five miles from Alice
Arr,\ and is owned by W. A. Wilson and J. A. MoDermaid. The
discovery is about 500 feet from
the railway tracks.

Public Meeting at Alice
Arm Addressed By
Cabinet Ministers
Hon. Wm. Sloan and Hon Dr.
Sutherland Chief Speakers
A public meeting was held at
the Alice Ann Coliseum on Tuesday evening, at which Hon. Wm.
Sloan, minister of mines, and H.
W. Sutherland, minister of public
works department, were the chief
speakers. Bert Kergin, M. L. A.
for this district also addressed the
The hall was filled to overflowing, and the speakers were listened
to with rapt attention. They
dealt with various matters, both
local and provincial, aud threw
the light onto a number of problems, that were a question to a
large number of the audience.
H. Fowler was chairman of the
meeting, and gave a short address,
in which he referred to the present
ministers as the type of men who
had placed the province in its present prosperous condition. He also
pointed to Hon. Wm. Sloan as the
person responsible for the free ore
assays now obtainable by mining
property owners, and who .also
gave us the 25% reduction in price
of powder now enjoyed by prospectors. These things Mr. Sloan
had fought for and obtained in his
endeavour to expand the mining
industry. We also enjoyed the
best mining laws on the continent
and these also were due to a large
extent to our present minister of
Mr. Fowler also said that the
financial standing of the province
was the best of any province in tin
Dominion. Iu concluding, he invited anyone who wished to discuss any private problems *witl:
either of the ministers to take it up
with them after the meeting.
Bert Kergin, M.L.A., who was
the next speaker, said that he had
urged the present ministers, at different times to pay this district a
visit, and it gave him great
pleasure to be able to bring them
here, and give them first hand information regarding our problems.
He gave an account of their trip
from Prince Rupert, and assured
his hearers that he had kept the
party on the jump. He said that
later in the evening Mr Sloan
would probably endorse the statement of Premeir Oliver, recently
appearing in the Herald, that the
Dolly Varden railway could be
operated by any legitimate mining
company, and no obstacle would
ever be placed in the way by the
government regarding operation of
the railway.
Dr. H. W Sutherland, minister
of public works, was the next
speaker. He went into details regarding the work carried on
throughout tbe province by the
Public Works Department, and ex
plained to the audience why it was
not possible to concede to every
request made, He said that before leaving Victoria, he had found

The Smelter broke into the win
column on Monday evening, when
they defeated the Elks by a five to
three score. Numerous errors
coupled with three hits counted
for four runs against the Brother
Bills in the first frame. The losers
«hased three over the plate iu the
third, but the winners added one
more to their lead in the fourth

Elks, but was not up to his usual
good form. Steve McKeown was

it necessary to run his pencil
through $4,000,000 worth of roads
that had been applied for. Owing
to the population of the province
being scattered over such a large
area, the road problem was one of
the biggest the government had to
contend with. The policy of the
Public Works Department was to
examine each request thoroughly,
and build the roads which were
most essential.
Dr. Sutherland said the government owned 6000 miles of roads,
and in addition also owned 1500
miles of first-class mining trails,
and the wooden bridges of the
province if placed end to end
would extend a distance   of   66
miles.   All these roads,  trails and
bridges had to be kept iu repair by
the government in addition to new
The speaker said that at the
present time there was more activity in the mining industry in B.
C. than ever before, and the department is trying its utmost to
meet the road and trail problem in
the mining districts. He said that
they had seen the Toric mine that
day, and from what he saw there
he believed that the people of Alice
Arm had every reason to be optimistic, and said he believed that
this district has a great future.
He assured his audience that the
Dolly Varden railway will be kept
open for anyone wishing to use it,
and any trunk roads needed will
be looked upon by the department
with favor. He. concluded his address by saying that he would be
pleased to discuss local matters
with anyone after the meeting, as
he thought it a good way to oh
tain information regarding th.
Hon. Wm. Sloan, minister of
mines, gave a somewhat lengthy
address. He reviewed the mining
industry of the province thoroughly, and also delved into the activity of other government departments.
He stated that as one of the
pioneer prospectors of the Yukon
he knows something from a prospectors point of view, and he realized the difficulties that beset the
pioneer prospector. He came to
British Columbia when the province contained a population of only
70,000 people, and to show the
remarkable growth since that time
reminded his audience that last
year the provincial payroll reached
the huge sum of $160,000,000.
He reviewed the good work done
by the government in regard to
the Workmen's Compensation
Act, and stated that the provincial
government was petitioning the
federal government to introduce a
system of old age pensions for the
aged and hoped it would soon be
consumated. Mr. Sloan quoted
figures to show the remarkable
growth of the lumbering, fishing,
agriculture and mining industries,
and said that last year the mines
of the province produced wealth
totalling nearly $50,000,000 and
predicted that the total for the
present year would reach nearly
The speaker said that mining industry was improving in every
section of the province, and in
order to give encouragement, we
must give capital a square deal.
He wanted to see money invested
in our mines, not as a speculation,
but as an investment. He referred to the injury done to the mining industry of the province by
the wildcat mining of the early
days, and considered that any
company formed should spend at
least 70% of their capital ou development work.
In reviewing negotiations now
proceeding with the Dominion
Government in regard for help in
building mining roads, Mr. Sloan
stated that the Dominion should
pay 50 per cent, of the cost of
new mining roads. When a new
mine was brought in, the Dominion Government derived as much
benefit from taxation as the Provincial Government, and did not
>ay out a cent in providing transportation. This expense being
Some entirely by the people of the
province. He thought it was only
fair that the-Dominion Government should shoulder a part of
this burden.
He also advocated tbe free
entry of mining machinery into
the province. The B. C. mining
companies were compelled to compete with the world in the world's
markets, and any handicap, such
as taxation of imported machinery
should be removed, so that they
had an even break. He was
pleased that the people of the province were realizing the importance
of the mining industry, and investing their money in it, but urged
his hearers to give them a square
deal, to which they were entitled.
In addition to holding the office
of minister of mines, Hon. Wm.
Sloan is also provincial secretary,
and he gave an outline of the activities of this department, which
includes supervision of all Mental
Hospitals, the Tuberculosis
Hospital, etc., and which costs the
people of the province $2,000,000
per year. He stated that one in
every 286 is an inmate of a mental
hospital, and these hospitals last
year cost $650,000 to maintain.
He advocated a strict mental examination of all persons entering
Canada, in order to stem the fast
rising flood of mental deficients.
The Oriental problem was next
discussed by the minister, and he
said that this provinoe was not big
enough for two separate civilizations. One must go, and that
question must shortly be decided
by the people. He said that if
everyone would strictly avoid all
dealings with Orientals the
question would solve itself quickly.
In concluding, he appealed to
those present to help build up a
strong and prosperous province,
and asked for the hearty cooperation of all to attain that end.
