Ore  Body   At   Tiger
Crosscut 14 Feet In
No. 2 Tunnel
Ore Also Being Crosscut No.
3 Tunnel
The ore body in the No. 2 tunnel
at tlie Tiger has been crosscut, and
is shown to have a width of 14 feet
of silver ore. The ore was cross-
out at a depth of 300 feet from the
surface. The ore is of good grade
and samples have been sent out
for assaying.
Development work is now being
concentrated on No. 3 tunnel.
This tunnel is ill over 270 feet. A
body of ore 7 feet wide, of which
there were no surface indications
was cut through at a distance of
200 feet from the portal. At 270
feet another blind ore ledge was
encountered, and latest reports
from the mine state that it has not
yet been crosscut by the tunnel.
Both of the above mentioned
strikes were unlooked for.
It is expected that an additional
100 feet will have to be driven
before the ore body of No. 2 tunnel
is encountered. When this has
been done, a depth of 450 feet on
the ore will have been obtained.
As soon as the ore in No. 3 tunnel is intersected, work will be
pushed on No. 4 tunnel, and its
successful completion will give a
depth on the ore of 800 feet.
Judging from the successful operations to date with the comparative
ease in locating ore bodies on each
level, the Tiger has every indication of being rapidly developed into a, valuable mine.

Local Mining Co. Gives
District Publicity
During the week we received a
very descriptive folder published by
the Kitsault-Eagle Silver Mines Ltd.
It provides a mass of information
concerning the various properties
held by the company, and should
go far in giving publicity to Alice
Arm in general.
Illustrations show a general view
of Alice Arm with mountains in the
background. Views of ore out-
croppings on the properties are also
shown together with camps. A
map of the company's holdings is
also given.
The Kitsault-Eagle Co. control,
five properties. They are the Sunrise Group, 24 claims; Silver Cord
Group, 6 claims; Eagle Group, 6
claims; Le Roy Group, 14 claims,
making a total of 50.
At the present time development
work is being concentrated on the

Beach   Ladies   Defeat
Mine Basketballers
In Wild Game
Customers at the games on Monday night certainly got their money's
worth. With the teams battling
fiercely with no advantage violations
were frequent and the uproar general. The strain on the spectators
was terrific. The holiday season
should allow all concerned to calm
down a little.
The Mine Ladies took the first
half of their game easily at 7-2.
Pat O'Neill made the first basket of
the game but all other Beach efforts
were wild, iucluding a flock of free
throws. At half time Miss Greenwood appeared on the scene.
Beatrice Watson went on in place
of May Rowland who had been
banished and made a one-handed
shot that counted for 9-2.
Pat O'Neill was back in the game
and she and Miss Greenwood, aided
by stout work on the Beach defence
worked up to 9-8. Time out was
taken for debate. At the resumption Julia Calderoni tossed in a free
throw to lead 10-8. But Miss
Greenwood dribbled up the side to
even the score.
With the Beach fans crying for a
point, Miss O'Neill let a good
chance go and the Miners threw on
more steam in an effort to break
the tie. It cost them the game.
Julia acquired the fourth personal
and left the game which was deferred to allow the officials to hear
the disputants.
With four players the visitors resumed the fray but five good players are needed to turn back the
Beach Ladies these days. A basket
and a free throw by Miss Pat O'Neill
were the next items and Miss
Greenwood added another point
before the whistle blew to end it at

Christmas, the great christian
festival of the year is here again,
and what a wealth of memory is
summed up in the word Christmas.
To many of us and certainly to
all children there is no happier or
more comforting word in our
language. The word Christmas
radiates happiness, good cheer,
merrymaking and laughter. It is
a time honored day yet the joys are
ever new. The message of old
rings out as clear as ever—"Peace
on earth goodwill towards men."
On Christmas Day we celebrate
the birth of our religion. A religion
founded on brotherly love one to
another. On that day we will
wish everyone a Merry Christmas.
Old wrongs will, or should be forgotten. Not only on Christmas
Day should we be pleasant to
everyone we meet, but as good
christians we should carry the
message of goodwill throughout the
coming year.
British Consumption Of
Copper Increases
British consumption of copper,
tin, and zinc during the first six
months of 1928 showed an increase
over that for the corresponding
period of 1927, though the total increase for the three metals was
almost balanced by a decline in the
consumption of lead, according to
the U. S. Department of Commerce.
Copper ore imports during the
first half of 1928 came to 109,730
tons compared with 96,057 tons and
87,471 tons for the corresponding
periods of 1927 and 1926, respectively.

Tram To Porter-Idaho
Will Be Completed
Next Spring
Stewart News
With ten men shoveling snow to
keep the trail passable, Jack Rennie
is moving the last of 300 tons of
supplies from Green Point cabin to
the Porter Idaho and Prosperity.
This has been a long, hard season
for his pack train, and they are
about ready for a winter's rest.
In the desperate battle waged between the Premier Gold Mining Co.
and the weather in regard to constructing a tram to the Porter Idaho mine this year, the weather won
by two weeks, despite the limit of
human endurance and ingenuity-
being employed. This struggle was
necessitated by a large shipment
of steel of the wrong size being
sent in which delayed the construction for six weeks. However, when
conditions are favorable in the
spring for the resumption of work,
two weeks should see the tram
ready for operation.
Meanwhile at the mine the crew
consists of 25 men who are drifting
and upraising under the direction
of Foremen MoManning. The work
is being done to block out ore and
provide ventilation. The crew at
the lower terminal has been reduced to about five men, who are
working on the power plant that
has been connected up with the
Silverado as an extra precaution in
ease the International Electric
power supply proves inadequet at
any time.
On the Prosperity, lying just
above the Porter Idaho, twenty men
are employed. These crews represent the maximum that will probably be kept on all winter. Results of the work cannot be definitely learned, as it is the policy
of the management to report to
headquarters and not to the public.

Canada Leads In Production
Of Many Minerals
In a review of the mining and
water power industries of Canada,
issued by the Hon. Chas. Stewart,
minister of the interior, the country's position in the mining world
is reviewed. Canada stands first
in nickel, first in asbestos, first in
cobalt, third in gold, third in silver,
fourth in copper aud sixth in zinc.
In two years, three at the outside,
Canada will occupy the second place
among the gold producing countries of the world, passing the
United States.
