Some Good Ore
Development work on the Alice
lis producing very encouraging
I results, During the week, higher
J grade ore was encountered in the
lidrift than has hitherto yet been
1 found. The ore is of much higher
1 value, Mid ie<jomposed of ruby and,
I brittle silver, and the vein is from
112 to 18 inches wide. The depth
[obtained being about 22 feet. The
[fact that this vein of high grade
(ore has been encountered under-
[ ground, is very encouraging and it
I is the intention of the owners to
[continue work on the property
I throughout the winter.

The Silver Tip Fraction, situated
I at the Kitsault Glaoier and joining
[the  Homestake mine is showing
! great promise.    Messrs. E. Ness
aud J. Fiva have this year driven
| a drift twenty feet in length on
I' the property.   The ore encountered
in the drift, which is composed, of
yellow oopper and galena is somewhat decomposed, but solid ore is

open cut, 10 teet by 16 feet was
also made on the ledge.

An editorial printed in a recent
issue of "Mining Truth" Spokane,
under the heading, "Is British Columbia in Canada?" calls attention
to the (act that Canadian capitalists are not investing in mining in
this province as they should do,
but are leaving the rich harvest to
be gathered in by the astute
Following are extracts from the
"As the western pilgrim leaves the
Windsor Street Station of the Canadian Pacific Railway at Montreal,
his heart is made glad by a splendid
exhibition of British Columbia
products in one of the arcades leading
to the street. Among these exhibits
are specimens of ore from Slocan,
Ainsworth, and other well known
mining districts. That, according to
our personal observation, is the last
link between eastern and western
Canada, so far as the mining industry
"Try to discuss mining in British
Columbia with the average Montrealer
and he will immediately register ennui
of the most pronounced type. True,
some Montrealers own stock of Consolidated Mining & Smelting Co., but
that is looked upon as an investment
quite remote from mining and numbered among the happy financial
children of the great railroad system.
There is real activity in Cobalt and
Porcupine stocks, but absolutely no
enquiry for or interest in the mining
wares of the far western province."
We do not believe any will be found
to dispute this obvious condition,
even if it be dificult to find proper
explanation. It nevertheless emphasizes the fact that British Columbia
must look elsewhere for capital with
which to develop the interior and
coast districts, all of which are crying
for attention and all of which offer
inducements not duplicated anywhere
On the other hand, British Columbia
stocks are as well known in the financial district of New York as they are
in Nelson or in Spokane. There is no
antipathy to stocks based upon mines
of the provinces in fact, they are as
popular as any on the long list of Curb
active issues. This means that if the
mines of the province are to be developed within the next hundred years or
so the necessary capital will be found
in the United States and not in
Those interested in mining are
well aware that there is a lot of
truth in the above items, and they
also know the apathy of Canadians to invest in mining in this
province, except on a very small
scale. The Americans on the
other hand are quick to grasp the
opportunity, and are unceasing in
their search (or new properties.
It must be admitted that were it
not (or American capital coming
into the country, there would
probably be no Anyox today,
paying out nearly $2,000,000 a
year in wages, and also spending
nearly that figure in purchasing
supplies of various kinds; there
would be no Surf Inlet or Britannia mining camps, and if R. K.
Neil, of Spokane had not developed the Premier, that famous mine
would without a doubt, be nonexistent. American capital put
Alice Arm on the map, when
Chicago interests commenced operations on the Dolly Varden and
Wolf, and Canadian capital nearly
wiped it off the map when they
took hold of the same properties.
We would naturally prefer to see
Canadian capital invested in mining
in this province instead of American, but as this seems to be
impossible, American capital is
heartily welcomed, and no obstacle
should be placed in its way.
Fully four hundred men are now
employed in the mining industry in
the Slocan district.
Between 150 and 175 men are now
working in the vicinity of Sandon in
mining and mill work.

A new gold strike has been made on
Hills Bar Creek, near Hope. The original discoverers of the Lucky Pour

$100,000 a few years ago, made this

Many a man has saved ten times
the price of his subscription to the

given through 'its columns. If one
buys the paper for its stories only, he
saves from eight to twenty dollars a
year, which the serials and other tales
would cost him ,jt bought, in book
form. As an investment nothing
which yields a better return is on the
market. One huge subscription list,
with names on it which have been
there for fifteen, twenty, thirty, forty,
even fifty years, is one proof of that.

|ot putting over a success.
The "Granby News" was again
i for some sooring on the part of
Ir. Murdooh.   He stated that it
Evas useless, and that he could
vrite it all in four minutes. Mr.
iuzzelle could'nt see any ad van-
i in it, and if taking up the
Secretary's time, it ought to be
The matter of how the Mine
Hall would be handled on its completion, was left in obeyance for
the time being. No formal organization had been effected, and there
was no authority to prooeed with
(iny business in connection with
the suggestion that it be taken up.
Until such time as representations
had been made to the Counoirfrom
the proper source it would be wasting time to consider the matter.
Mr, Herdman asked for the use
of the old gymnasium building for
jthe winter months if it was not
going to be used.   He said he had
two classes of boys working there
every Friday night, and that soon
there would be a third class taking
advantage of the floor there.   He
said he had been fortunate in securing   the  assistance of electrician
: Evans, who was interested in boy's
work, and felt that they were on
the right road to do some good for
the  youth  of  Anyox.     He also
thought that Mr. Gibson, of the
IjjAnglican Church, would appreciate
jthe use of .this building.   It was
('.decided   to   have  the  Secretary
make     the   necessary    enquiries
through the-Housing Department
\ and secure permission for the use
of this building until other arrangements could be made.
In oonneotion with the construction of a gymnasium at the
Beach, it was thought that it
would be necessary to have some
equipment in sight as soon as
possible, and it was deoided to advertise for second-hand material in
good condition for this purpose.
It was also suggested that the
Canada Ordnance Department be
written to as they would probably
have excellent second-hand apparatus lying idle.
Mrs. Eve asked that a copy of
the daily news bulletin be placed
in some place where the womenfolk would be able to read what
was going on in the outside world.
It was decided to place a bulletin
in the Beading Boom and another
near the oement block.
