Silver Crest Co. Strikes
Seven Feet of Ore
On Saddle
The tunnel being driven on the
Saddle property at Hastings Arm
by the Silver Crest Mining Co. has
encountered 7 feet of ore. This is
the most gratifying news that has
come from the Saddle for some
time. It was not expected that the
ore would be encountered until the
tunnel had been extended from 100
to 200 feet.
The ore, when first encountered,
was less than a foot wide but gradually widened out to 7 feet. The
ore is of a good grade and the tun-,
nel is being pushed ahead as rapidly as possible.
The tunnel was being   driven to
encounter the   ore  vein   that had
been developed in the bottom of the
shaft.    The early  striking of the
ore   throws   an   entirely   different
complexion   on    the   Saddle.      It
means that the property contains a
larger tonnage than was anticipated
and instead  of development work
being undertaken this winter, plans
may be changed so that mining and
| shipping of ore can be carried out
The tramway   is   completed   so
I that ore can be taken  to  tidewater
I over it.    The last shipment of ore
[ was taken out over the tram.

News reached Alice Arm during
the week that A. McPhail is developing on the Bluebird one of the
largest ore bodies ever uncovered
in the Alice Arm district.
Development is being made by

Anyox Choral Society Will
Visit Alice Arm
The Anyox Choral Society contemplate giving a concert at Alice
Arm in the near future. The exact
date has not yet been decided upon.
The membership of the Choral
Society has been increased during
the past three months. A list of
the members is published in this
week's issue. Their visit to Alice
Arm will be appreciated by all those
who enjoy good singing, and it is

Much Business Disposed
Community League
The A. C. L. Council held a long
meeting on Wednesday. Use of
League buildings was again under
discussion. For the dance in the
Gym. on October 28, the Hospital
Auxiliary will be charged the usual
rental. The League, however, will
make to the funds of the Auxiliary
a donation equal to the rental
charged. The Secretary reported
that adequate table service of a superior quality had been provided
at the Gymnasium. The expenditure was approved. The dance in
compliment to the ladies' basketball
teams was reported by Mr. Gourlay
as being nearly self-supporting.
Mr. McKay indicated the programme for the sports banquet next
Friday. Mr. B. Buck has been se-.
lected as toastmaster. Guests are
limited to those directly associated
with sport in the past year. Seats
have been arranged for well over
one hundred. To overcome any
difficulty in regard to refreshments
all minors will be placed at a separate table where no liquor will be
served. Mr. Clark reported the
purchase of books within the limit
set by the Council. An attempt is
being made, he said, to increase the
proportion of Canadian magazines
in the Reading Rooms. He also
suggested a possible means of arranging systematic work in physical
culture for school children. This
is subject to the approval of school
Mr. Dunwoodie reported the completion of a census
of infants and young children. It
was pointed out that if he would
lay the emphasis on the training of
those of four years of age and over
it would come within the School
Law and the Board of School Trustees would have power to act. In
such event financial aid from the
Dept. of Education would be available. The Council empowered Mr.
Dunwoodie to approach the trustees.
The matter of children attending
the second show was discussed but
no action taken. Recreation Hall
was allotted to the Choral Society
for the evening of October 25th.
Anyox Boy Scouts Receive
Their Charter
A. Rogers left for Prince Rupert
on Monday.
The Anyox Boy Scouts recently
received their charter, and are now
listed at headquarters as the First
Anyox Community League Troop.
The scouts are very enthusiastic
in their work. They expect to
make much progress, and hope to
add more badges to their collection.
They wish to take this opportunity of thanking the Anyox
Community League; the management of the Granby Co. and all
those who helped to make the past
year so successful.

The low price of silver that has
prevailed for the past year is disappointing. Silver is the only
metal of importance mined in British Columbia that has not shown
an advance in price during the first
half of 1929 as compared with the
first half of 1928. The major
portion of the world's silver is a
by-product in the winning of copper, lead and zinc. The producers
treat it as a by-product and get
whatever is offered. As a result
no concerted efforts are made to
push the sale of silver or to discover new uses for the white metal.
There are, however, several mines
in British Columbia and also in
Ontario that mine silver ore exclusively. It is these mines that
are feeling the effects of continued
low prices, and they are viewing
the future with concern. It is
stated that the stocks of silver in
China and India have been mounting during the past year, and eastern stocks are also accumulating.
There is, however, a ray of hope
for higher prices. It is expected
that as conditions in Europe improve
and pre-war prosperity prevails
that there will be a greater demand for silver ornaments, silver
plated cutlery, dishes, and that
there will be a demand for sterling
silver articles. It is also expected
that European countries will gradually expand their silver currency,
replacing the paper money in vogue
during the war. The whole cause
of the present over-production of
silver is that it is not used in the
manufactures. Science has invented new uses for all other metals except silver. It remains a
primitive metal, used only for the
Premier Mine Is  Far
From Exhausted
Steadily increasing strength in
Premier Gold Mining stock has been
one of the features of the
ket in the past week.
Some weeks ago when it was reported that new ore had been found
at lower depths the stock immedi
ately strengthened.
The Guggenheim people are anything hut optimists, and very often
put the opposite to an attractive
face on the situation regarding their
It will be recalled by local investors that only two years ago the
board of directors came out flat
footed with the statement that th(
mine was about petered out, and
that they had prospects for only
about three more years of active
life. On such a statement the price
fell steadily, although there were
many old supporters of Premier
sold only to buy in later at a reduced figure.
There is a general movement on
to get Premier back to near its old
position on the market. It is still
paying 24 per cent, dividend, and
may, some believe, revert to the
former 32 per cent, basis where it
stayed for five or six years.
At around $1.80 it seems headed
for a higher mark.
The time-worn statement that
"good mines are hard to kill" has
seldom beeiynore strikingly demon-
stated than in the case of the
• i
It can be argued with success
that never before in ths history of
the world have there been so many
people, so many groups trying to
make social conditions better, as
there are today.
British Columbia are also showing
a good profit on their operations.
When copper prices dropped' it
became necessary to improve the
treatment of the ore in order to
reduce operating costs. The copper producers adjusted themselves
to low price conditions and are today reaping their reward. Silver
producers are meeting low prices
by   improving   their    production
same purposes as it was 2,000 methods.    Improved methods of
years ago, namely, currency and
ornaments. During the first half
of 1929 the average price of silver
was 55.297 cents per ounce. It is not
expected that lower prices than
these will ever rule. Silver producers are making a profit at this
price. The Premier Co. is still
paying a 24 per cent, dividend.
The silver mines of Ontario and
milling ore are being continually
made. Previous low prices of
copper, lead and zinc forced it
upon the producers. It is also
being forced upon the silver producers, who will derive great benefits from a rise in price as did the
copper, lead and zinc companies.
Science will overcome the silver
problem as it has all others.

Information is beginning to come
out in regard to the Noranda copper refinery. Apparently no definite location has been chosen as yet,
but general plans are well advanced. In spite of the many news
items which have appeared, some
confusion seems to exist in regard
to the outside copper matte which
is to come to the plant for treatment. The matte from the Flin
Flon mine will be sent to Noranda,
while the matte from the Sherritt-

Wheat  Going  To   Prince
Rupert Elevator
There is about 60,000 bushels of
grain in the Alberta Wheat Pool's
local elevator at Prince Rupert,
whereas close to 300,000 bushels
would be required to load a boat.
Therefore, it is not -expected any
shipments will be made for a few
weeks yet. While small amounts
of grain have arrived so far this
season have not required extra help
at the elevator to handle. Latest
reports show upwards of ninety
cars of grain west of Red Pass
bound for the elevator.
Farmers Advised To Store
Wheat and Boost Price
Nothing should induce the Canadian farmer to move his grain overseas unless he receives a proper
price for it is the position taken by
E. B. Ramsey, chairman of the
board of grain commissioners.
There is sufficient storage facilities
in Canada to take care of this year's
crop, as well as a large holdover
from last year. If there is any
congestion, it will likely be only
temporary, he said.
