Premier MacLean and
H. F. Kergin Address
The largest political big gun oh
tainable was brought into action
on Monday at Alice Arm and
Anyox, when Premier J. D. McLean
addressed meetings in both towns.
These addresses were the lirst given
hy the Premier since he set the date
for the election on July 18th. and
then opened his campaign that will
extend over the greater part of the
Both addresses were along the
same lines. We will therefore

This meeting was opened at 10
a.m. in the Coliseum, and at that
hour the hall was well filled. The
chair was occupied by W. B, Bower, who made a few introductory
remarks, and called upon H. P.
Kergin, the present member to address the meeting.
Mr. Kergin stated that it gave
him great pleasure to see the
Premier at Alice Arm. as he could
gather a lot of useful first-hand information regarding our problems
of road construction. He would
also understand nfbre fully thediffi-
culties of the pioneers of the northern mining camps, He said that I
up to two years ago Alice Arm
was a one-mile road town, but that
we had now passed that stage,
thanks to the cooperation of the
Departments of Mines and Public
He stated that the Atlin constituency comprised 60,000 square
miles, and had a very scattered
population, thence the difficulty of
building roads. He touched on the
Special Act passed by the Legislature regarding the Dolly Varden
mine. It was considered good
business at that time, but not so
good since. The speaker stated
that the Taylor Mining Co. left the
camp with a black eye from which
it was just recovering.
Mr. Kergin stated that when the
Liberal party came into power capital was timid of the government.
They did not look u pontile Mothers'
Pension Act with favor; they were
timid regarding Women's Franchise; they were not pleased with the
creation of a Department of Labor
in 1927. He said that the Liberal
government abolished employment
agencies, passed the semi monthly
Payroll Act; the Minimum Wage
for Women Act; Minimum Wage
for Men; the Eight Haur Day Act;
Equal Guardianship Act; Family
Maintenance Act; and Old Age
Pension Act, the latter costing the
government $400,000 per year at
the present time.
The speaker then referred to the
Tranquille Tuberculosis Sanitor-
ium, the Home for incurables,
Home for the blind, deaf and dumb
and the rural nurses, all of which
were supported by tlie government. He touched on the financial position of the province, and
said that this position had been
favorably commented on by financial papers.
The Chairman next called upon
Premier MacLean to address the
meeting, who in rising said it gave
him great pleasure to see such a
large audience, and their presence
showed that tlyjy desired to familiarize themselves with the problems of governing the province.
The Premier spoke at some
length, and although not very
forcible in his expressions he tend-

G. E. Townshend Dies
Suddenly On Train
The death occurred on Monday
June 11, at Jasper, B. C, of Mr.
George Ernest Townshend, manager of the Anyox Hotel, who was
proceeding east on his vacation.
The deceased had been in ill health
for some time past and was taking
a trip homeward. He was a son of
Sir Charles Townshend, late Chief
Justice of Nova Scotia. The remains are being forwarded to
Amherst Nl S. where interment will
take place. The late Mr. Townshend was a veteran of the South
African war. He was active in the
work of the local post of the Canadian legion. He was also a member of the Native Sons of Canada

dered a lot of information.
He spoke very favorably of H. F.
Kergin, and said that this, constituency, could not do better than
return him to the Legislature. It
needs a lot of money to develop a
new province such as ours, he said,
and every application received by
the government for expenditure
could not be granted.
In reviewing the members of the
government he said that all had
made a success of business before
entering politics. The conservatives had made some serious
charges regarding expenditure of
funds. The most serious charge,
he said, had been investigated hy
three men, who were: Justice
Morrison, a minister of the Gospel,
and Mr. W. H. Malkin of Vancouver and not an iota of truth was
found to be contained in the charge.
These charges, he said, weresprung

believed that a govornment should

High Grade Being Drifted on
At Toric Mine
A new drift that has been com
menced at the Toric mine is cutting
through a fine body of high grade
ore. A large sample of this ore
brought to town during the week,
shows it to be of an extremely high
grade character.
It is reported that the concentrating mill is being turned over.
High Grade Brought Down
From Musketeer
That the Musketeers group of
claims have high grade ore equal
to anything found on the surface in
the whole camp was. plainly shown
during the week, when a magnificent specimen of high grade galena,
copper ore was brought to Alice Arm.
The specimen was taken from the
surface, and the quality of the ore
was a surprise to many who are not
acquainted with the Musketeer
Group. Development work is
being carried on.
Double Wedding at Anyox

Anyox P. T. A. Annual Social
On Monday
On Monday evening at "eight
o'clock in the New School, parents
and teachers will gather for the annual farewell social. There will be
very little business, the evening
being primarily a social occasion.
During his visit to Alice Arm,
Premier MacLean was taken for a
trip up the Dolly Varden railway
and also across the Kitsault suspension bridge. He thus obtained some
useful information regarding local
problems. •
The Mandell-McLarnin fight pictures will be shown in Anyox on
June 29th.
Premier MacLean Gives
Address At Anyox
Speaking to a crowded hall in
Anyox on Monday evening, Hon.
J. D. MacLean gave a clear exposition of the record and the outlook
of the government. Telling his
audience that the railway and forest
policies of the government were
fully reported in newspaper despatches, the Premier enlarged upon
the record of his party in the field
of social legislation. He pointed to
the reduction of taxation which had
been accomplished and held out the
prospect of still further reductions
when his government should be
sustained at the polls. Of this last
eventuality he had, he said, no
doubt because firstly, his party
could furnish honest, capable men
for office; secondly, they were supported by the best types of citizens
and thirdly, because his party stood
for a policy of common benefit to
all classes, and a policy which had
thus far accelerated the prosperity
and successful development of the

Liberal Nomination
The Liberal convention held in
Anyox on Monday evening, unanimously elected H. F. Kergin, the
present member, as the Liberal
candidate. Premier MacLean, who
present spoke on behalf of the candidature of Mr. Kergin. The latter
also gave a short address. He
stated that he was perfectly willing
to step aside if any other name
came before the convention. No
other name being forwarded he
became the choice.
Anyox Girl Guides Conclude
Successful Year
At a meeting of the local committee on Girl Guide work held recently the work accomplished during
the past year was reviewed. The
local patrol now numbers twenty-
three. To date they have raised
$108 and are now equipped with the
snappy uniform of the organization.
Much credit is due to Mrs. M. L.
Campbell and Miss Daisey Hoadley
the patrol leaders. The Guides
wish also to thank the Community
League for the use of the gymnasium, and to express their appreciation to the Anglican Church and the
United Church for the use of their
halls. Their gratitude also goes
out likewise to the many mdthers

Plans Being Formed To
Operate the Beach
Development work this year on
the Beach Molybdenum property,
which is owned by G. W. Bruggy
and Wm. McFarlane of Alice Arm
has been instrumental in adding
to the ore tonnage.
Considerable underground work
has been done at various times, all
of which has fully realized the expectations of the owners in regard
to ore quantities and values.
The ore is a high grade molybdenum, and the driving of a lower
tunnel will undoubtedly give a
much larger tonnage of ore. It is
claimed by experts who have examined it to be among the best, if
not the best molybdenum property
in Canada.
It is the intention of the owners
to form a syndicate in the near
future, for the operation of the
property. Machinery will then be
purchased, and it is expected that
no difficulty whatever will be experienced in making a profit on
operations within a short time.
Northern people will be given the
first opportunity to subscribe, and
later southern capital may be included.
No anxiety is felt regarding the
marketing of ores. Mr. Bruggy
has received numerous enquiries
from agents of European manufacturers, and these agents are ready
to make contracts tor regular shipments of high grade ore or concentrates.
All available data possible has
been gathered regarding price aud
markets, aud the installation of
necessary machinery should place
the Beach Molybdenum in the
dividend paying c+ass within a
short time.
It is located ou the beach 4 miles
down the inlet from Alice Arm.
Its proximity to tide water ensuring a minimum cost regarding
transportation costs.
Following are some of the uses
of molybdenum:
Small percentages of molybdenum
as a rule alloyed with chromium,
nickel, or vanadium, constitute different types of steels that have
been used for a w'ide variety of
purposes. The list includes automobile parts, aeroplane motor and
fuselage parts, section steel for
reapers and other agricultural implements such as shovels, etc.,
armour plate, battering tools such
as machinists' hammers, edge tools
such as chisels and hatchets, gears,
large and small, springs of all
kinds, shafting for heavy and light
machinery, balls for ballbearings,
rifle barrels, rivet sets, pierced
tubes, pressed metal parts, chains,
etc., and recently for heavy and
light rolls.
.There is probably no mechanism
that is subject to such hard and
variable usage as the working
parts of an automobile, and combined with this is the insistent
demand that the weight be kept
down. The steel employed must
have the combined qualities of
hardness, toughness, resiliency and
ability to withstand sudden and
great reversals of stress and a continued succession of shocks of the
heaviest character. It is claimed
by some automobile manufacturers
who have devoted much time to
investigating its merits; that molybdenum steel meets all these exacting demands and permits of a re-

Wednesday, July 18th. has been
set as the date for the Provincial
General Election. On that day
the people of British Columbia will
decide whether, in their opinion the
present government have carried
out their duties efficiently during
the past twelve years and are
worthy of a continuance of office
or whether the province would
obtain increased prosperity by
electing a conservative government
to administer our affairs. During
the next few weeks, everyone will
have ample opportunity of reading
and listening to the arguments put
up by both parties, and after
thoroughly digesting the mass of
information tendered, it is for
everyone to vote for the party that
they think most capable of administering the affairs of the province in
a sane, efficient and honest manner.
As an independent newspaper,
unattached to any political party,
it is our duty to give equal publicity
to both parties. And this duty
we propose to carry out, unless
unjustly abused. That we shall
be criticized by some of the adherents of both parties is to be expected.
Both parties have selected their/
candidates. The Liberals have
again nominated H. F. Kergin, of
Alice Arm, who has represented
this constituency for the past eight
years. Naturally he is well known
throughout the district and his
supporters are confident that he
will again lead them to victory.
He has lived in the north over
twenty-four years, many years before Prince Rupert came into ex-
istance, and has seen the northern
coast grow from two small fishing,
villages, Port Simpson and Port
Essington Io its present prosperous
condition. He is a pioneer and all
his business interests are in the
T. W. Falconer, of Alice Arm,
the conservative candidate is also
well known in the north, especially
among the old-timers scattered
throughout the riding. He has not
however, been in the limelight of
late years, quite as much as his
opponent, and has yet to make the
acquaintance of a number of the
late comers into the northern mining camps. He came north to
Stewart during the first boom, in
1910, and carried on a hardware
business there until 1916. At
that time Stewart had almost ceased to exist, and Alice Arm was the
camp that was receiving attention.
He removed to the latter town in
the spring of 1916 and since then
has conducted a general merchandise store.
Outlook For Copper Is
The outlook for copper stocks as
a group is distinctly favorable The
Bfookmire Economic Service, Inc.,
reports. Supply and demand position is sound, and copper as a metal
selling at pre-war prices is not inflated in price.
In 1926, 76,052 more tons of copper were produced than in 1926,
and 38,763 more tons were shipped
in 1927 than in  the  year previous.
Consumption is on the increase,
as is evidenced by its use in the
light and power industry, the building industry, automobile industry
and in electric appliances of every
Another factor of great importance lies in the increased efficiency
of mining and refining and the
steady decline in production costs.
Furthermore, The Copper Export
Association operates as a stabilizing
influence in the trade, seeking to
maintain an equilibrium between
supply and demand.
On the whole, the stocks of the
financially strong, low-cost producers are still attractive and if, as
seems likely, we run into a period
of further business expansion, copper stocks and copper business
should benefit.

Okanagan. — Word Is received
from Washington that the Okanagan project, during the last year,
had a higher per acre yield of
apples and a consequent higher
acre return to the grower, than
any government irrigation project
in the United States. The local
project, with 3.567 acres in apples,
has a yield of 25,142,750 pounds,
or 9,852 pounds to the acre, a yield
which brought the growers a return of $1,030,854, or the high record price of $289 an acre. On tha
Yakima project the average yield
was 9,602 pounds to the acre or at
the rate of $246.16 per acre. The
nearest approach to the Washington record was on the Sun river
project ln Montana, where the
average was $153.33 an acre, followed by the Boise project, with a
price of $148.

enemy. The report says: "The
work consists mainly ln the exposure of slides at different altitudes and at different locations.
These aeroplane exposures attempt to collect from altitudes of
from 1,000 to 5,000 feet the date of
the earliest appearance of rust
spores, the region over which they
first appear, the rate at which the
spore content of the air Increases
over various regions, the visibility
of spores caught at these higher
altitudes and the relation of certain environmental and cllmatit
factors to the rate of development
and spread of rust. Tightly stoppered bottles are used, containing
wooden paddles to which are attached microscopic slides lightly
smeared with vaseline. These
slides are exposed tor 15 minutes
at varying altitudes; the elides replaced ln the bottles and then returned to the Oovernment laboratory at Winnipeg.''

•Spring la a rerarrectioa of nature,
*J aid human nature alio awakens
to new hopes. A story of a benign
season is given when the rising of
the sap signalixea the budding of
the tree, when the riven ling a
song of freedom and the birds add
their songs to the voices of little
children in streets or country lanes.
Though Spring and beauty can
be found anywhere, it is in the
country that it ia ideal Here one
can watch the tilling of the soil,
the plowing and planting that the
earth may yield for the needs of
man. Nova Scotia is delightful,
for there the bustle and •trees of
our modern era doe* not exist It
fc a part of that ancient eouatry
of Acadia, and H is one of the
moat beautiful provinces in the
Dominion of Canada. There is no
part of Nova  Scotia  more  per
meated with poetic legend and historic lore than the Annapolis Valley, Windsor, Grand Pre and Gas-
pereau. They were centres of
events ln the early history of the
North American continent, for
French explorers visited this section as far back as 1604.
Quebec Province in spring Is
equally lovely, and especially the
rural districts near the fortified
Old World city of Quebec. Old
Norman farm nouses sprawl along
country streete for miles. Wayside shrines are many in this devout province. Glimpses are had
through quaint courtyards or narrow galleries of women at their
spinning wheels. - Here, as in sections of Nova Scotia, time is apparently not fought for as elsewhere, f
Quebec is lovely   In   May, es
pecially during the Canadian Folk
Song and Handicraft Festival, to
be held this year from Hay 24-28.
At the Chateau Frontenac one Is
transported into -; past decades,
seeing the work of the habitants
as they ply their shuttles of distaffs. The musical programmes
are those of the early French
Canadians, habitant melodies,
brought over originally by ths
French of early days.
It is refreshing in this age to
have a little of the peace of the
old world, and Quebec is impregnated with an atmosphere of romance and pastoral beauty. Spring
days quicken the wanderlust, and
with the first notes of the meadow
lark and robin the country attracts, and "Only the call of ths
long white road to the far horizons
wall" lures and beckons to the unknown places, beautiful in Spring. ALICE  ARM   AND  ANYOX  HERALD,   Saturday,   June 16    1928

Our Floating Home
V\7 e passed in luxurious comfort, free from any
care or irritating responsibility and absolutely
■rithout one disturbing incident from continent to
continent," stated Lady Williams-Taylor on her return
(rom a world cruise on board the Canadian Pacific
liner, the "Empress of Australia," during which tour
five continents, twenty-one countries and twenty-six
ports were visited and seven seas traversed.
"With sheltered ease," continued Lady Taylor,
"we had unfolded to us the soul-penetrating magnifi-
sence and the somewhat repellant fanatical conditions
of India and distraught, yet ever thrillingly interesting China. We steamed up and down the dangerous
Pearl River, and saw first-hand the devastation of
Canton. Mysterious Java, and almost untouched
Sumatra, held us spellbound.   Singapore and its ever
growing docks amazed us, and lovely Ceylon enchanted us. But Hawaii wound itself about oui
hearts and, to its haunting 'Aloha Oe,' we saw it
fade away through regretful tears. Not only are
the islands more than fascinating, but the Royal
Hawaiian Hotel would tempt any traveller to return.
"After such a wonder tour of 133 days," concluded
Lady Taylor, "we 'Lotus Eating Tourists' have once
again to face the realities of ordinary existence without the untiring supervision and perfect organization
of the mighty and far-reaching Canadian Pacific
Railway and Steamship's protection and care of us.
It was, indeed, with hearts full of gratitude and
appreciation for our splendid captain, his staff, and
tor the constant and devoted attention of the cruise
directors, that we finally bid farewell to our floating
home—the 'Emnress of Australia.'"

Premier MacLean and
H. F. Kergin Address
Continued from Paget
In  regard  to  tbe situation  in
1916 when the • «over,.n.eiit took
over the reins of office, be said that
the conservatives had sold huge
blocks of lmd to speculators, and
said that 230,000 acres had been
80ld to one company in the Necbaco
Valley. Unemployment was rite
and labor strikes were frequent.
It is a blessing he said that since
then we have had a government
that can keep peace between capita
and labor.
In 1916,650,000,000 was invested
i„ the province, while 11 yearshuer
this bad increased to 2,400,000,000,
m. 4 times as much. The Premier
blamed the conservatives for increased taxation, when the government went into power, stating
that a deficit of between 4 anc'
million dollars occurred every year
under conservative government and
this had to be made up. Taxes
went up in 1917 he said because
the credit of the country was des-
troyed. In 1915 the government
could only get $86.00 on a $100.00
when borrowing money.
The Premier delved into the
financial position of the province.
He said that the government had
abolished the personal property tax
and substituted the Gross Income
Tax, which was much fairer. If
income was small a tax of J of 1
' per cent, wasoharged, and if income
was large 8 per cent, was charged.
One mine last year be said had
made $13,000,000 profit. In regard,
to Life Insurance policies no tax
was levied unless policy was above
In regard to borrowing money
he said $4,000,000 was borrowed
to pay debts left by conservatives;
p G. E. $13,000,000; Soldier's
Land Settlement $2,000,000 aud
Establishment of new industries
$1,000,000. Twenty million dollars
passes through government hands
each year he said, and they were
criticized by people who had not
handled $5,000,00 in their lives.
The Prospector's Tax was explained. The speaker said that it
was assumed each claim was worth
$5 000.00 and therefore six claims
would be worth $30,000.00. In
reply to a question, however, he
stated that he would donate
$1,000.00 to any institution chosen
if anyone could prove that a tax
had been levied when a prospector
made a sale of his claims. And he
added the tax never will be levied.

BRITISH Columbia's Power resources are the envy of the world. With Power, the
riches of the world can be won; with Power, ores can be mined ... smelted; transportation problems solved; manufacturing industries developed, and with them
population... pay-rolls. Power is British Columbia's strongest bid for more industries
... more people.
Of the millions of horsepower available In our
province, but half a million are now harnessed to turn
the wheels of industry. The great hydro-electric development at Bridge River will ultimately generate more than
600,000 horsepower, while the output at Bonnlngton
Falls and other points is being steadily increased. The
Campbell and Chilko Rivets, on the mainland, and
the Nimpkish on Vancouver Island, are capable of
tremendous power development for the conversion of
our forest and mineral resources into fabulous wealth.
Two of British Columbia's Electric Power systems
are among the greatest in Canada, each generating
more than 400,000,000 kilowatt hours in 1927. This
represents an increase in the last ten years of 98%...
truly a remarkable achievement!
Foreign authorities speak of this record as a measure
of the great vitality of British Columbia.
Today we rank third in power and industrial development among Canadian provinces. We have made greater
progress per capita than any!
It is the policy of British Columbia to foster the
development of the hydro-electric powers for the benefit
of the public. They are allotted to private enterprises
on condition that they will be developed within a certain
time, so that no exploitation of public assets may take
Millions of dollars are now earmarked for Power
development in our province. Dams are being built,
turbines installed ... transmission lines erected to care
for the imminent industrial development.
Thousands of dollars are being expended weekly on
materials and wages; thousands are feeling the immediate benefits of this enterprise.
Side by side with our power development, Industrial
Expansion has kept pace. Today 17% of Canada's external
trade is handled by British Columbia. During the past
decade, our basic industries have increased 101.3%.
Our total payroll, including all classes, is estimated at
210 million dollars. Today, our Lumbering, Mining and
Fishing industries employ 72,517 people, paying them
175 million dollars in wages ... distributing an average
wage ranking among the highest in Canada.
These 175 millions in wages are a great contribution
to our annual internal trade in the province. They
have given our Industrial workers a buying power ranking
second in the Dominion and have largely been responsible
for our ever increasing prosperity, as evidenced by the
fact that the number of automobiles registered in the
Srovince last year was 76,187 as compared with 8,596
l 1916.
British Columbia's steady and varied Industrial
development has changed the conception in Eastern
Canada and the United States of our province. No longer
are we entirely dependent on the East for our manufactured products. British Columbia is Increasingly
furnishing her own needs. She now ranks third In the
whole Dominion as a manufacturing province.
Our phenomenal Power and Industrial growth has
focused the attention of the great industrialists and
. investors on our province. Today, British Columbia'in
the eyes of the world, stands for Power, Progress and
Plenty. May our efforts of the neit ten years stabilize
and Increase our Prosperity!

Married Men Gain  Victory
At Baseball Game
In the benefit game staged for
the Anglican Church on Wednesday
night the married men wore victorious over the bachelors by four runs
to two. The latter clung to a two
run lead for several innings but in
fifth, errors and hits sent three runs
in for the family men. A snappy
double play initiated by J. L. Stewart cut off a last inning rally by the
bachelors. The weather was threatening and the crowd consequently
small. The exhibition might very
well be repeated.

It is probably in the manufacture of automobile parts that molybdenum steels find their greatest
application, particularly in the
production of rear axle shafts,
transmission gears and shafts,
steering knuckles and pins, ring
gears, drive pinions, etc.
Tho chrome-molybdenum steels
used contain about 0.8 per cent
chromium and 0.36 per cent molybdenum.
Clifford Taylor of the Molybdenum Corporation of America, Pittsburgh, stated that:—
Half of the steels for automobile
business, etc., will be molybdenum
steels, estimating two million tons
of alloy steels, which would mean
about one million tons of molybdenum steel.
