Keystone Company will
Install Power Plant
on Sunset
Work to Commence next
One of the mining properties
which will be operated next year
in tlie Alice Arm district is the
Sunset property on Roundy Creek.
This property, which'is under bond
to the Keystone Mining Co, is one
of the most promising properties in
the district, and lias all tho earmarks of developing into a big
producing mine.
It has been spoken highly of by
Mr. Geo. Clothier, district mining
engineer, and also other mining
men who have visited tlie property.
It is the intention of the Key-
stoue Mining Co. to commence
work on the property about the
20th. of May next, and the first
work undertaken will be the repairing of the trail from tide water
to the mine. It is their intention
to install a first rate compressor
plant at the mine, consisting of a
Petters Youvill engine 28-B. H.P.
Tlie plant will be capable of operating two drills, which will be
N. 72's. The largest part of this
machinery will weigh 600 pounds,
and the balance can be taken down
so that it can be transported by
pack horses.
Samples of ore taken from the
property a short time ago for assaying purposes have given encouraging results, and gave an
average value of $60.00 per ton.
The values being obtained as
follows: gold, $2.00; silver, $20.00;
and lead, $38.00. The ore also
carries zinc, which will add considerably to these values. These
values are exceptionally good, in
veiw of the fact that it is all
practically surface rock.
The property is ideally located
in regard to transportation, being
only 1| miles from tidewater. It
has an elevation of 2500 feet. The
installation of an aerial tram would
1 solve all transportation problems
and the company would be able
to load their ore on board ship at a
| ridiculously low figure compared
with other companies operating in-
i laud.
The Keystone Co. have a • lot of
highly mineralised ground under
bond in the Roundy Creek district,
the development of which will
/prove an 'immense advantage for
(the whole camp, as- there is no
doubt that an active development
programme will quickly place another mine on the shipping list,
and one which may ultimately develop into one of the big producers
)f the distriot.

Sam Murray Gets the
Consolation Prize
Kitsault  River   Again
Threatens Town of
Alice Arm
Pay day up on the hill enjoyed
an added attraction, when on
Tuesday evening the Mine Club
staged its second card party of tlie
season, and entertained a gathering that occupied all the available
tables. Following the card games,
supper was served, and then a two-
hour dance nicely rounded off the
event. Top scores in the card
games were gained by Mrs. John
Swanson and Mr. F. E. Patton,
(bridge) and Mrs. Richard Harris
and Mr. W. J. Pierce, (whist) to

consolation gift was the fate of
Mesdames R. J. A. Manning, H,
Hart, and Messrs. Sam Murray
and Joe. Smith.
Mr.   and  Mrs. Chas. Wing
Leave Anyox
The resignation of Mr. Chas.
Wing from the Granby Co. after
13_- years service and his departure
from Anyox, leaves a void that
will be hard to fill. Mr. Wing has
grown up with the Granby Co. at
Anyox, and is familiar with the
workings of all departments. His
duties were many and varied and
he executed them with a minimum
amount of friction. A large number of friends were at the wharf on
Thursday to wish him and Mrs.
Wing all success and bid them
The news item published in last
week's Herald relative to the
Christmas Tree Pageant by the
Union Church, and called "The

"Followers of the Star," and will

Christmas Service, which will be
held on Sunday, December 27th

High water in the Kitsault
River, and subsequent danger of
flooding the town of Alice Arm, to
which this district is subjected to
almost each fall, occurred oil Sunday night and Monday morning.
For a short time previous to the
cession of the downpour, the town
of Alice Arm was in grave danger
of being flooded out by the roaring Kitsault River, but luckily for
everyone the rain ceased at a
critical stage, and only minor damage was done by the overflowing
of the river.
High water' in the Kitsault
river generally occurs during the
month of October, and after November has passed the danger
from high water is considered remote.
This fall, however, the weather
has been totally different from previous years. September, October
and November were dry months,
and when two weeks ago two feet
of snow fell, winter was considered
to have commenced, but such was
not the case for a heavy rain-

Dance Given in Honour of
Mr. and Mrs. J. B. Haffner
A very successful dance was put
on by the Anyox Community
League in the Elks' Hall, Friday
December 4th. in honour of the departure of Mr. and Mrs. J. B.
Haffner. The Elks' orchestra
came up to their usual high standard. Mr. H. R. Perks rendered
a saxophone and cornet solo during
the intervals. Dancing started at
9 p.m. and continued until 1.30
a. m. Mr. F, M. Kelly, A. C. L.
secretary, assisted by president
Chas. McLachlan and his colleagues of the council are to be
congratulated for tlie successful
manner in which this event was
staged, including dancing and refreshments. The party broke up
with the singing of "Auld Lang
Syne-' and "He's a Jolly Good
Fellow."    ■
Heavy Rains Cause Damage
In North
The extremely heavy rains
which had fallen during the early
part of the week have caused considerable damage in the province
and along the coast. Six hundred feet of the C. N. R. railway
track 40 miles east of Prince
Rupert has been washed completely out, and the Captain and mates
on the S. S. Cardena on Monday,
reported they had not been able
to pick up a light since leaving
Vancouver, and it has been the
worst rainstorm during their experience.

Every to^vn throughout the
province has its own local troubles
in regard to public works by the
government. Some of the requests
made to the Public Works Department are absurd and out of all
reason, while others are sane and
businesslike. Alice Arm has always been reasonable in its requests for public improvements,
and has therefore obtained results
in many instances. The government built a wing dam to protect
the town and bridge, and it is fulfilling its mission in an admirable
manner. During the past few
years another danger point, however, has arisen, and that is the
west bank of the Kitsault river below the dam. For the past three
years the river has been eating
away huge slices of land, that
would undoubtedly have been
very valuable some time in the
future. This land has gone and
lots more is going unless the
government takes immediate steps
to protect it. Every high water
period sees a big chunk of land
swallowed up and the approach of
the river towards town. It is extremely probable that the next
high water will unit the Kitsault
river with Falls creek, and as the
land slopes towards the town, the
water will cut a channel directly
through the centre. Those who
have seen the Kitsault in flood
have some idea of what damage
will be wrought. It will destroy
over half of the land on the west
bank of the Kitsault, and wipe out
in a few minutes the life savings of
three quarters of the population of
the town.

storm followed, which brought
down the snow and in a short time
the Kitsault river was transformed
from a peaceful little stream into
a raging turbid yellow torrent,
filled with logs, trees and stumps,
showing that the river was biting
out chunks of lands away up the
Throughout Sunday night the
rain descended in a deluge, and at
2 a.m. on Monday morning the
river was spilling over the end of
the wing dam, and all nearby residents vacated their homes as the
'water rose around their dwellings.
Daylight showed the river to be
on a level with the dam protecting
the big bridge piers, and the rain
still descending. Further down
stream the river was overflowing
its' banks and about two feet of
water was pouring over the
gardens of nearby residents, and
tumbling into lfalls Creek, which
also overflowed its banks, Hooding
the adjacent ground.
A survey of the ground the
following morning between Falls
Creek and the Kitsault river showed that tlie Kitsault river has cut
out an enormous slice of valuable
land and is now only fifty feet distant from A. D. Yorke's garden.
The house owned by Norman McLeod was flooded by over a foot of
water. Hallett's Park received a
liberal layer of sand and gravel,
being three feet deep in some
At a distance of 4| miles up the
Dolly Varden railway tlie water
has carried away about 300 feet of
the railway, besides causing
numerous slides. All bridges,
however, are safe, and the damage
is not so great as was expected.
The future danger to the town
of Alice Arm lies close to the
house of A. D. Yorke, unless protection is made at this point, it is
highly probable during the next
high water, that the entire river
will burst through at this point.
If it does it will cut a new course
through the centre of the town, destroying valuable land and property and possibly many lives.
English and Eastern mining
men figure prominently in a deal
just consummated at Revelstoke,
through which the McLean Mining
property on Carnes creek has been
purchased for the figure pf $6<
000. C. Thompson of Kimberley
recently visited the property and
it is understood he has bonded the
group for his principals.
Considerable time was spent on
the property this summer by mining engineers who have taken out
samples and made thorough examinations which have resulted in the
deal being put through. The
group is situated some 40 miles up
tho Big Bend country.
The possibility of the P. G. E.
being extended in any direction
next year has disappeared definitely and tlie government, it is learned, will not ask for a further
money vote at the present time.
A scheme under which a huge
land grant will be set aside to aid
the sale of the road to private interests is anticipated, however, but
there is no intention on the part of
