New Kitsault River Co.
*■    Meets With Ready
Response For
The outlook for the Kitsault
Biver Mining and Development Co.
Ltd., who will develop tho Matilda,
Fox and Blue Ribbon group of
claims, is exceptionally bright says
Mr. Elmer Ness, who returned hist
week from Vancouver, Victoria
and Seattle.
Mr. Ness, who has spent several
months in the south, in connection
with the company states that he
has met with every encouragement.
He has placed a considerable number of shares on the market and
enquiries are continually being
made. One individual who is connected with mining interests, and
who is now going to California,
requested 150,000 shares, for disposal in that state. If these are
placed on the market, all 25 cent
shares will be withdrawn, and the
price advanced. Par value of the
shares are $1.00.
Several influential men of the
south are interested in the company., and as soon as possible they
will send an engineer to examine
the property on their behalf.
The Kitsault River Mining and
Development Co. have a distinct
advantage over the average stock
company formed for mining purposes, inasmuch as no payments
have to be made in order to acquire
the property. The owners of the
property stand on an equal footing
with other shareholders, as they
have taken shares in payment.
They are confident, however, that
the property can be developed into
a mine, and are willing to take
* their chances with the other shareholders.
Such a square and above-board
proposition cannot fail to interest
the investing pubic. Another ad
vantage possessed by the company
is that all money will be spent on
the ground, under experienced
supervision. The company having
no luxurious offices to keep up, and
no high salaried officials to kmnge
in easy chairs. It is these facts
that are attracting substantial men
to invest and which will ultimately
spell success.
While in the south Mr. Ness
interviewed several of the most
prominent mining men of the provinoe, and also Seattle. He was
surprised at the fund of information these men had regarding
developments at Alice Arm, and
was assured that at least three
mining engineers, representing
reliable mining companies would
visit the oamp this year.

spirit of co-operation which had
been shown him in the past be

Mr. Haffner then made a short
.speech of introduction and welcome
to Mr. Bocking. Mr. Bocking

Dolly Varden Railway
Cannot Retard Growth
States Premier Oliver
Any Company Can Operate
It Who Mean Business
What position the government
would take in regard to the operation of the Dolly Varden railway,
in the event of any mining company wishing to operate it, has
been a riddle for a considerable
time. This point was recently
made clear by the Premier in reply
to a question by Mr. Elmer Ness,
who obtained an interview with
the Premier, while he was in
During the interview, Premier
Oliver stated that the government
was ready at any time to do everything possible for the development
of the Kitsault River district. In
egard to the railway, which was
the property of Mr. Wingfield and
associates, he stated that if any
mining company desired to use the
railway, ways and means would be
found whereby they could operate
it. In the event of a company
wishing to buy and a dispute arose
with the present owners, a board
of arbitration would probably be
appointed to appraise the present
day value of the railway and
t-quipment and their decision
would be final.
The Premier realized that the
railway is the only means of communication up the Kitsault Valley
and the government will not allow
the development of the country to
be retarded. Any company who
means business and are strong
enough financially to operate the
railway will he able to do so.
Construction Of New
Wing Dam Commences
Work was commenced this week
of the construction of a wing dam,
to protect the east pier and approach of the big Kitsault River
bridge, a short distance above the
town of Alice Arm. The work is
in charge of J. Wells and at present five men are employed. This
number will be increased, however, in the near future, when tbe
rook quarry will be worked, the
rock to be used to fill the cribbing.
Owing to the soft nature of the
river bank ou the east side, aud
the tendency of the river to cut a
channel behind the approach, this
work' has been found necessary in
order to safeguard the bridge. The
dam will be 160 feet in length and
10 feet wide. Cribbing will be
built and this will be filled up
with rock taken from the rock
quarry on the west side of the
It is understood that the Wharf
Road will be surfaced as soon as

Presentation Made To
Mr. H. S. Munro By
Department Heads
A very pleasing social affair was
held at the home of Mr. J. B.
Haffner, assistant general manager
of the Granby Co. on Saturday
evening. The occasion was the
presentation to Mr. H. S. Munroe,
late general manager of the
Granby Co., of a silver water jug
and tray by Mr. Geo. Warwick, on
behalf of the managers of the
various departments of the Granby
In receiving the gift, Mr. Munroe thanked all those present, for
their kindness, and expressed his
gratification for the loyal support
given him by the managers of the
different departments during the
past live years. He trusted that
the same support would be given
to Mr. Bocking, for the success of
the company's undertakings depend to a large extent upon the
support of the various managers.
Mr. Munroe was roundly applauded for his kind remarks.
Mr. Bocking who was then called upon to respond to an address
of welcome by Mr. Haffner, stated
that co-operation of the employees
was essential to the success of an
organization, and hoped he would
Hud in Anyox the same spirit of
co-operation as had been prevalent
in the past.
Mr. Chas. Wing, in a brief and
breezy address took his audience
back to the time when Mr. Munroe
arrived, when the fate of the company hung in the balance, and it
was a question of whether to close
down or persevere and win out.
Thanks to the co-operation shown
by everyone, the company is still
operating, and the big payroll of
over $2,000,000 each year has
helped considerably towards the
prosperity of the province.
Committees Appointed
For Anyox Boy Scouts
A meeting of the fathers of the
local boy scouts to appoint a committee, which would be responsible
for the boy scout movement at
Anyox. was held in the boy scout's
hall last Thursday evening. On
this committee the following were
elected: Messrs. Barclay (chairman) O'Neil, Asimus and Clay.
Under the able leadership of Mr.
Murdock, who is scout master,
three patrols have been organized
with Stewart McLachlan, Stanley'
Sawrey and Ed. Clay. The boys
are all taking a keen interest, and
passing the necessary tests with
honor. Uniforms have been sent
for, and we are hoping that we
will soon see the scouts on parade.
Mr. Alex. Crear has been appointed assistant scout master by
the scout committee. Mr. Crear
was interested in boy scout work
in the Old Country and has had
lots of experience. ALICE   ARM   AND   ANYOX  HERALD,   Saturday*   April   11,   1925

We are glad to note that
Mayor Taylor, of Vancouver, is
opposed to the amalgamation of
the Chamber of Mines, Publicity
Bureau and Board of Trade.
This amalgamation was suggested
evidently with an idea of centring
the work and reducing the expense, It might work all right
with the Publicity Bureau and the
Board of Trade, but the Chamber
of Mines is along different lines.
Any man with general experience
and some ability can manage either
of the first two organizations, but the
Chamber of Mines requires a man
with technical knowledge of mining. That organization is fortunate in having a very competent
man in charge at present, and the
only drawback to further efficiency
is that he is handicapped by having too much to do.
"The Chamber of Mines. has
done splendid work under its present auspices," Mayor Taylor said,
and, I think Aid. Frank E.
Woodside (president) should be
allowed to continue to develop the
operations of the organization."
The Chamber of Mines is
demonstrating its. usefulness, and it
may be that the provincial department, which is a main support,
may see some day that it would
be advisable to make the Chamber
the active factor of its organization.
It could well be taken over entirely
by the department of mines, as it
gives that branch of the government a practical service that
nothing else can or does—Western

Annual Report of
Premier Mine Shows
Enormous Profit
A town that never has anything to do in a public way is on
the way to the cemetery. Any
citizen who will do nothing for his
town is helping to dig the grave.
A man that curses the town
furnishes the coffin. The man
who is so selfish as to have no
time from his business to give to
town affairs is making the shroud.
The man who will not advertise is
driving the hearse. The man
who is always pulling back from
any public enterprise throws
boquets on the grave. The man
who is so stingy as to be howling
hard times, preaches the funeral
and sings the doxology. And
thus the town lies buried.
Cranbrook and Kimberely are
receiving at least fifty men a day
from the prairie in quest of work,
which is just about fifty too many

Mr. Guess, the managing
director, states that it is a conservative estimate to say that the
Premies mine has 420,000 tons of
ore available down to the fourth
level of the present workings
Below the fourth level diamond
drill indicates now the presence of
146,000 tons of ore.
This ore, according to Mr Guess,
will average close to $20 a ton in
gold and silver. Above the fourth
level Mr. Guess states there is a
considerable tonnage of ore
developed which is of rather
complex mineralization whioh may
become profitable to treat later.
In development work the Premier has been successful in opening
up ore bodies in two new areas,
and by so doing has kept the ore
reserves about the same as a year
ago. Exploration work to the
south of the main workings,
according to Mr. Guess, failed to
find any commercial ore, while
work on the sixth level has been
unsuccessful to date in developing
ore bodies,

Coal Shortage at  Nome is
Becoming Serious
The failure of the coal laden
steamer Appollo to arrive last fall,
and the sudden prosperity of
native fox trappers, has created a
serious coal shortage at Nome.
Trappers purchased coal instead of
combing the beach for wood. The
coal famine is relieved somewhat
by the city's purchase of 50 tons
from the United States Signal
Corps radio station, which was
apportioned in one and six sack
allotments. The situation is regarded as serious, the next coal
ship is duo in June, but all beach
wood is exhausted for 30 miles,
and the nearest forest is 70 miles.

Last Year's Mineral
Production Shows
Big Increase
When the animal report of the
minister of mines of British Columbia appears this month it will
show that the value of 1924 production, according to revised
figures, approximates $48,621,097
tin increase over 1923 of $8,316,777,
or 17.6 per cent. This means that
in two years there has been an
advance of over 35 per cent,
measured in monetary terms This
progress has been based on devel
optnent of natural resources and a
normal growing demand for the
mineral products of  the  province.
Hun. William Sloan, minister of
mines, authorized the publication of
those figures with much satisfaction as it has been his ambition,
since assuming office, to see British
Columbia's mining industry top
tho fifty million mark in value. It
was not ono and a half millions
from it last year, and he is confident that the result of the year
1925 will bo substantially in excess of those of tho twelve-month

Hotelmen Threaten To
Build Own Brewery
A hitch has developed in connection with the issuance of the
government licences for the sale of
beer. This is the effect of a dispute between the brewers and the
government board over the price of
beer. Shortly before the last
general election the brewers succeeded in inducing the government
to increase the price of beer to be
paid by the liquor board to $18 per
barrel, and by way of good
measure the increased price was
made retroactive to cover sales
which had been made for some
time prior to tho fixing of the increase. $18 per barrel it was
thought the limit in beer prices
had been reached, but this apparently is not the view of the
In shaping up for his beer selling
campaign, Hugh Davidson, of the
liquor board, had arranged to turn
the brewers' beer over to his licen-
oeos at $22 per barrel, and the
beer when retailed by them would
be disposed of at a price to yield
$40. or a margin of $18 per barrel.
The brewers are not satisfied with
the price they are getting. They
do not wish to further increase the
price to the consumer, but they are
insisting they be given a portion
of the government's profit of $4
per barrel. The hotelmen are said
to resent the action of the brewers
in that it threatens to delay them
in opening up the beer business for
which they have been waiting
since plebiscite was taken, and unless the matter is speedily arrarig-
ed there is a prospect of the hotel-
men of the province uniting in the
purchase of a brewery which will
manufacture and sell the beer to
the government liquor board,
which in turn will be retailed in
the licenced premises of the members of their association. This
action on the part of the hotelmen
is expected to bring the brewers to
time quicker than anything else,
as it could be very readily financed.

The Consolidated Mining and
Smelting Company may install a
small concentrator to treat ore on
the old dump of the St. Eugene
mine, which was a big producer
fifteen or twenty years ago. If
the new process is successful, there
should be quite a revival in mining around Moyie.
