Anyox P. T. A. Elect
Delegates For
A special meeting of the Anyox
P. T. A. was held in the High
School on Monday afternoon. The
chief purpose of this meeting was
to complete the list of delegates to
Federation's Convention next week.
Miss Ormrod and Mr. Clark agreed
to serve with those already elected.
It was decided that the next meeting be held on the 28th inst. For
that occasion the teachers will be
requested to give short talks on
their convention experiences.
Iu connection with some renovating the School Board is doing at
the Mine School, the P. T. A. will
spend up to ten dollars to establish
a kitchenette.
The action of the President in
arranging for the children's matinee of the "Story of Steel" was
commended. Discussion was general on the advantages of motion
pictures in education. Mr. Clark
was requested to make investigation of a number of suggestions.
The delegates were instructed to
urge upon the Provincial Federation the need of keeping in touch
•with outlying associations.
Saddle Tunnel Nearing
Rich Ore Body
Mr. P. E. Peterson, consulting
engineer for the.Silver Crest Mining Co. left on Wednesday evening
for Vancouver, after spending a
week on the Saddle property at
Hastings arm.
He made a complete examination of underground work done at
the Saddle during the winter
months. He was very satisfied
with the manner in which the
work had been carried out, and
stated that the main tunnel is
driven a distance of 456 feet from
the portal, and 18 feet of crosscuts
have also been driven. The tunnel
now has a vertical depth of 200
feet from the surface. Although
the tunnel has not yet reaohed its
objective, whioh is the rich silver
lead ore developed by sinking a
shaft, the latter part out through
a form of mineralization. In several places high grade was encountered. It is expected that
only a short distance is necessary
before the rioh ore body is broken
Work was suspended on aocount
of shortage of powder, but will be
resumed as soon as possible.
Alice Arm Ladies Form

plans for the raising of funds towards the Anglican Church Building Fund. Mrs. W. M. Cummings
conduoted the meeting.
Following discussion, it was
resolved to form a Women's Auxiliary to the Anglican Church.
Officers elected, were: President,
Mrs. H. F. Kergin; Secretary-

It was decided that the first step
undertaken would be a bean supper
to be given on Monday April 21st.
Mrs. C. M. Smith and Mrs. L.
O'Connor were elected to supervise
the obtaining of refreshments. An
account of which will be found in
our news columns.
Lot Owners Improving
Their Property
Big patches of old mother earth
showed up through the snow blanket during the week around Alice
Arm, and in a week or so the
ground will be bare. Almost
everyone is busy fencing off their
lots on the former Indian Reserve
and making plans for flower and
vegetable gardens. The roads and
streets, which are as yet in the
rough, are badly in need of surfacing. Mud holes and lakes being
far too prominent.
When the streets have been graded, sidewalks laid, and lots fenced
and cultivated, Alice Arm promises
to be a pretty spot. The town is
located in a beautiful natural set
ting, and if everyone cultivates
their lot a beautiful town will

Predicts Mining Activity
For Alice Arm
The Alice Arm district will see
more life during the coming season
than it has done since the hectic
days when the Taylor Mining Company was tearing out ore from the
Dolly Varden mine to get it to the
market while the price of silver
ranged between $1 and $1.30 per
ounce, says the British Columbia
Miner. We remember that when
silver was at its highest level many
people predicted that it would never
again fall below the $1 mark.
The Taylor Company so successfully scuttled the mine that none of
the many engineers who examined
it would entertain it until Britannia
Mining & Smelting Company became interested in the Toric and its
engineers and geologists had an
opportunity to examine the Dolly
Varden at leisure.
Exploration at the Toric is understood to be very satisfactory. A
raise has been put up from the bottom level to the surface and a winze
has been sunk 220 feet below the
bottom level and exploration is now
under way by crosscuts and drifts
at this new level.
All the exploration is said to
have been done in commercial ore,
though of a low grade at present
market prices, but the largeness of
the deposit compensates for the
lowness in grade. The development of this deposit will be continued, and, at the same time, the
company will thoroughly explore
the Dolly Varden and Wolf groups.
The Alice Arm-Dolly Varden
railway is to be reconditioned,
chiefly, wc understand, at the expense of the Provincial Government.
Falls Creek Dam Being
The work of completing the
Falls Creek dam above the town of
Alice Arm was commenced two
weeks ago, by the Department of
Public Works. J. Graham is iu
charge of operations. It is expected that operations will not be completed until nearly the end of the
month. When it is finished the
waters of Falls Creek will be diverted into the Kitsault River.
Formerly the creek flowed through
the town.

Following one of the longest
winters on record spring has at
last arrived. Although all the
snow has not disappeared from the
streets of Alice Arm, cars are
being used instead of sleighs, and
a few more days will see the
streets bare. Springtime has many
charms. It has, however, one
drawback, which is the bringing to
view of the winter's refuse that has
been thrown out of dwellings since
last fall. Now is the time to
spring clean outside the house as
well as inside. In another week
or two it will also be time to make
arrangements for planting flower
and vegetable gardens. Now that
everyone own their own lots there
is no excuse for any resident not
having a well kept garden or at
least a nice clover patch. Alice
Arm will have many visitors this
year, and nothing gives a better
impression to visitors than well kept
gardens. Invest in a few packets
of seeds and your efforts will be
amply rewarded.
The promoters of the Anyox
Night School classes are to be congratulated upon the splendid success attained during the past winter.
The classes were well filled
throughout the season and a large
number of men and women added
considerably to their knowledge by
taking advantage of the splendid
opportunity offered. In these
days, when efficiency of the highest order is expected, one cannot
learn too much. Knowledge is
essential to success. The ambitious person forges ahead and the
sloth is left behind.
Consumption of Metals Show
Big Increase
British Metals Corporation, affiliated with Noranda in the erection of the new copper refinery at
Montreal East, held their meeting
recently iu London, England. C.
V. Sale, the chairman, presented
some interesting figures as to the
world's consumption of copper and
other base metals. In the 20-year
period, 1908 to 1928, metal consumption is shown to have increased greatly. Copper demand
increased some 915,000 tons; tin,
71.000 tons; lead, 560,000 tons;
and spelter, 680,000 tons.
Mineral Reserve Is Opened
Closed to prospectors as a mineral reserve since the early days of,
the great war, the copper fields ol'
Coppermine river district, on tbe
rim of Canada's northland, will on
July 1st. this year be thrown open
or staking.
Diversion and Use
Attending night school classes
during the winter is a profitable
way to spend leisure hours.
When the sun climbs high in the
heavens, however, flooding the land
with warmth, nature calls for outdoor exercise. Summertime is the
season of the year when the youth
of the nation yearns outdoor activities. The people of Anyox do
not enjoy the facilities for outdoor
recreation as southern towns enjoy.
Mining is unique among the industries, in that, instead of employing outside capital upon which to
build prosperity, it creates new
wealth. It takes ores from the
ground, where they are useless,
and changes them into taxes, dividends, wages and the necessities
and luxuries of life for hundreds of
thousands of people.
It is a .major factor in tbe progress of related industries, and
every citizen in the metal producing state, whether farmer, laborer,
tetfesher or grocer, benefits directly
from mining operations. Without
mining, there would be no industries, no automobiles, telephones,
stoves, surgical instruments, motion pictures or any one of millions of services and commodities
we now enjoy.
In short, mining is of a great industry and an essential factor in
the building of a civilization. If
we, as a nation and as individuals,
are to progress to the limit of our
possibilities, mining must be encouraged—Nelson Daily News.

It is not possible to jump into a car
in Anyox and drive far into the
country. Such being the case one
must take their exercise at home if
they do not possess a boat. The
Anyox Community League has
provided every facility for outdoor
recreation. Tennis, golf, baseball,
football, etc. The two former
sports will be well patronized and
it is hoped that the two latter will
rally enough enthusiasts so that
leagues can be formed as in former
years. Sport of some kind young
men must have, and outdoor sport
is far better than a poker game in
a stuffy room.

Bungalow Camping in Rockies
Cpring is here, according to the calendar, though
you may not otherwise have noticed it, and with
the spring the thought of vacation begins to gather
strength. In another month or six weeks the bungalow camps of the Rockies, famous the world over
for thei'' beauty, will have opened again for the
season > Outstanding among them are the Lake
O'Hara ..jngalow camp (lower left), just behind
Lake Louise; Yoho camp (lower right), under the
roar of the Tokakkaw Falls; and Emerald Lake
chalet (upper), by many considered to be the gem
of the Rockies, although artists and others will often
contend that Lake O'Hara is a close rival. Stays at
reasonable cost may be made in any or all three of
these camps, since they are not very far from one
another and are easily accessible. As a by no means
minor part of the lure of these camps there is the
attraction of trail riding on trained, sure-footed
mountain cayuses over mountain passes through
some of the most magnificent scenery in the world.
Centre inset are the famous Twia Falls near tho
Yoho Camp.

Winnipeg, April 17—In addressing the Winnipeg Board of Trade
today regarding the Hudson Bay
railway, Minister of Railways
Crerar emphasized the importance
of that route in connection with
Oriental trade. He predicted that
some day there would be a line
west from Churchill through the
Rocky mountains to the head of the
Portland Canal. This, he said,
would give a direct line from Liverpool to the Far East. It would be
the shortest possible route.
