Reply to Mine Manager's
Condemation of News
Item re Toric Mine
Two weeks ago we stated in our
news columns, that: ■
"The staff at the Toric mine was
considerably reduced during the
week. The reduction followed the
return of A. C. H. Gerhardi from
the south. Whether a new force
will be engaged, and the mill put in
operation this year is unknown. It
is understood that some difficulty is
being encountered in the starting
up of the mill."
This statement was evidently displeasing to A. C. H. Gerhardi
Managing Director of the Toric
Mines Co. Ltd. who stated to
the Prince Rupert Daily News
that the mill would be put in immediate operation.
Mr. Gerhardi decried such
journalistic tactics as ours which he
declared were irresponsible.
We are not going to apologise to
Mr. Gerhardi for the above statement, nor are we sorry that we published it. We would do the same
again if a similar case presented
In speaking of irresponsible
statements we Wish to inform Mr.
Gerhardi that a lot of not only irresponsible but wild ones, amounting
to deliberate lies have been published
in the press regarding the Toric mill
but they evidently pleased him for
he certainly did not contradict them
in the public press.
On August 10th. 1926 the following appeared under a 3-column
heading in a Vancouver mining
"Rapid progress is being made
on the construction of the mill at
the Toric mine, Alice Arm district,
and it is confidently expected that it
will be in operation in about another
month, and that by the end of the
year the first dividend from operations will be paid. Ore has been
blocked out in quantity, and while
the value has been placed at about
$12 a ton, the assays from average
assays do not go lower than $22,
and some very high silver ore has
been encountered."
A lot more followed which we
have not the space or patience to
The following appeared in the
same journal on February 25th.
"By the middle of summer, the
Toric mine, Alice Arm district, will
be producing. It is expected that
the mill will be in operation not
later than June. When it starts
there will be ample ore to keep it
going, the bins being full now. All
the machinery for the mill has been
delivered, with the exception of the
Diesel engine, which is on the way.
English electrical equipment will be
installed, supplied by the Northern
Electric Company."
This was followed on May 10th.
1927 by the following:
"The mill of Toric Mines Ltd.
should be in operation about July

To create an interest in   the
matter of fire prevention in the
schools of British Columbia, the
British   Columbia   Pond   of the
Ancient and Honourable Order of
the Blue Goose (a body of fire
insurance   men   taking an active
interest in the welfare of the province)   and   the   Fire    Insurance
Agents' Associations of Vancouver, New Westminster and other
parts of the province are offering
medals for the best essay submitted
by   the   pupils   of   the    schools
throughout the province.   This is
the fourth year that this competition has been held in the schools.
The opportunity of showing   an
interest in Fire Prevention is evidently appreciated judging by the
increased   number    of   excellent
essays received in the last competition.    The prizes consist of gold
medals, suitably engraved.   One
will be awarded for the best contribution from the High Schools in
each of the districts  and one for
the best contribution from Public
Schools in each such district.
Credit of British Columbia Is High
British Columbia's credit under
tlie financial poliuies of the McLean
Government reached a new peak
recently,        when provincial
bonds to the amount of $6,000,000
wore sold at an average yield of
i.^2/4 per cent. This is the lowest interest rate that the province
has paid on a loan since 1885, and
indicates that financial men all
over the continent, who bid on the
new bonds, are more impressed than
ever with the soundness of provincial finances.
Tenders on the new $6,000,000 loan
were received from thirty powerful financial organizations in Canada and the United States, the
Government's first entry into the
into the financial market
this year having attracted continent-wide attention. A syndicate composed of A. E. Ames &
Co., Wood, Gundy & Co., and the
Royal Bank were the successful
tenders. The proceeds of the bonds
sold to this syndicate will be divided equally between refunding and
the financing of new provincial
buildings and roads.

Old Age Pensions Commence
This Month
This is the season of the year
when dull days and leaden skies
prevail. Our spirits have lost
some of their buoyancy of the
bright summer days, and we look
forward to the winter months with
an inborn dread. This is the
time when the pessimist howls his
tale of woe of a hard winter, the
like of which was never known.
Past experience has taught us that
every winter in a new northern
mining camp is a hard one. We
have weathered a good many in
the past and will probably survive
a few more if necessary. The
Chinese have a proverb, which
says: "Shape yourself to circumstances as water shapes itself into
a jug." If more of us followed
this advice there would be less
loose talk of hard winters and
calamity ahead. If a new mining
camp is to expand, it must eliminate the calamity howlers, who not
only spread their tale of woe
around their home town, but carry
their melancholy story wherever
they go.
Perhaps no time in history has
the   mining   industry been more

Certainly not in Canada. There
have been many mining booms in
days gone by, of which every
reader is acquainted with. The
Australian gold boom, the South
African Rand rush, the Califor-
nian and Yukon eras; the Idaho,
Montana and Nevada developments in the U. S. A.; but when
did such a large body of world
leaders in the mining business as
the British Mining Congress, visit
any one part of the world as it is
our privilege to honor, throughout
the whole of Canada, during the
past three months. Have these
men come to Canada to see if this
country is destined to be of mining
interest? Nol They have come
because they know by geological
records and the engineering statistics that this country is now and
will be for many years to come—
the most profitable for mining expansion of any country in the
world. The personal observation
and examination by these experts
will bring untold results.

The Mineral Province of Western Canada
Has produced Minerals as follows: Placer Gold, $78,018,548; Lode Gold; $126,972,318: Silver, 880,-
787,003; Lead, $106,976,442; Copper, $209,967,068; Zinc, #50,512.557; Coal and Coke, $284,699,138;
Structural Materials and Miscellaneous Minerals, $50,175,407, making its mineral production to the end
of 1926, show an
Aggregate Value of $988,108,470
The substantial progress of the Mining industry of this Province is strikingly exhibited in the following
figures, which show the value of production for successive five-year periods: For all years to 1895, inclusive $94,547,241; forfive years, 1896-1900, $57,607,967; for fiva years, 1901-1905, $96,507,968; for five yearo-
1906-1910, $125,534,474; for five years, 1911-1915, $142,072,603; for five years, 1916-1920, $189,922,725;
for five years, 1921-1925, $214,726,650; for 1926, $67,188,842.
Production Last Ten Years, $429,547,755
Lode mining has only been in progress for about 25 years, and only, about one-half of the Provinoe has
been even prospected; 200,000 square miles of unexplored mineral bearing land are open for prospeoting.
The Mining Laws of this Province are more liberal and the fees lower than those of any other Provinoe
in the Dominion, or any Colony in the British Empire.
Mineral locations are granted to discoverers for nominal fees.
Absolute Titles are obtained by developing such properties, security of which is guaranteed by
Crown Grants.
Practically all British Columbia Mineral Properties upon which development work has been done
are described in some one of the Annual Beports of the Minister of Mines. Those considering
mining investments should refer to such reports. They are available without charge on application
to the Department of Mines, Victoria, B. C. Reports covering each of the six mineral Survey
Districts are published separately, and are available on application. Reports of the Geologioal
Survey of Canada, Winch Building, Vancouver, are recommended as valuable sources of information.

NEARLY all of Canada and'several of the eastern United
States, as well as far away
India and the British Isles, were
represented at the flrst annual powwow of the Jasper Squadron of
Trail Riders of the Canadian
Rockies on July 21st, held in the
heart of Jasper National Park and
36 miles from the nearest settlement. . Around ,the big camp fire,
built so close to tne shore of Maligne Lake that its flames mingled
with the snow-tipped reflections of
ttie great mountain peaks which
surround this finest of all Rocky
Mountain lakes, gathered the. riders
who made the trail trip.
The pow-wow was called to order
by Major Fred Brewster, commander of the squadron, and vice-
president of the main body, and by
a unanimous vote the following
slate of officers was re-elected for
1926-27: Commander, Major Fred
Brewster; secretary-treasurer, H.
S. Davis; mileage committee', R. W.
Langford, Digby Harris, T. W. Mc-
Donough and Donald "Curley" Phillips. A decision was reached to
hold the next annual pow-wow in
the Tonquin Valley, beside Amethyst Lake, at the foot of the "Ram-1
parts," where the Canadian Alpine
Club is holding its annual meeting
this month.
Numbering more than 100 members, the Jasper Squadron represents almost every country in the
world, including on its roll such
personages as the Earl and Countess Haig; Yuki Maki, greatest of
all Japanese Alpinists; Hasha Moto,
son of the Premier of Japan; Sir
Henry Thornton, president of the
Canadian National Railways; Irving Cummings and J. Farrel Macdonald, of movie fame.

1st., and with that Alice Arm district will have a mine again in production. Construction of the mill
is well under way now, and the last
machinery has been sent north
Odds and ends are now being
arranged for and when A. C. H.
Gerhardi, managing director, goes
north next Friday everything will
have been provided for and all that
will be necessary will be to get it
in place."
The publication of these statements naturally caused many people
to wonder when the mill would
actually be operating, and recently
we received several enquiries from
out of town readers. The paragraph we published two weeks ago
was the truth regarding the Toric
mill. It certainly seemed a question
whether the mill would be operating
this year, when almost the entire
staff was laid off.
It would be interesting to be able
to definitely state who supplied the
copy for the above articles. It is
evident that they tickled the
palate of Mr. Gerhardi, for in the
same journal on September 10th.
1927, he authorized the publication
of an article occupying the whole
front page. It was profusely embellished with illustrations, in two
of which Mr. Gerhardi figured con
We could say a whole lot more
regarding the Managing Director of
the Toric Mines Co. Ltd., but we
are not going to, for the present at
least. We have made our case
clear and will leave it to our readers
whether out statement was irresponsible.

Alice Arm
The annual loss of property in
Canada and the United States
exceeds Five Hundred and Fifty
Million Dollars. Of this huge sum,
Canada's loss in 1926 exceedud
Forty Million Dollars.
During 1926 one thousand, eight
hundred and thirty-four fires were
reported in British Columbia, which
destroyed property worth four million dollars. This is an average of
nearly five fires a day throughout
the year aud a loss to the people of
British Columbia of approximately
eight dollars per head of population
as compared with less than one
dollar per head in European countries.
The four million dollar loss by
fire in British Columbia last year
would have been sufficient to erect
four hundred buildings valued at
ten thousand dollars each to erect a
city the size of Nelson, B. C. (assessed valuation).
