Mining Syndicate
Are Expanding
The Alice Arm Power & Mining
Syndicate will proceed with their
project of supplying Alice Arm
with water as soon as the snow is
off the ground states Mr. B. C.
Marsh, who was in Alice Arm during the week.
The syndicate will also proceed
with their programme of developing their mineral holdings as soon
as possible in the spring, and their
advent into Alice Arm promises to
give the mining industry considerable impetus.
In addition to the Success Group
whioh is situated near the town of
Alice Arm, and which they acquired some time ago, they have taken
over the Riverside Group, consist'
ing of 8 claims. This property is]
situated at Granite Creek and joins
the Dolly Varden Railway. They
have also purohased a half interest
in the Stormer Group, owned by
J. Calvin, and have taken an option
on the remaining half from A. D.
Negotiations are proceeding for
the purchase of the Zorka Group,
owned by A. Serbich and located
at 13-mile on the Dolly Varden
Railway. Negotiations are also
proceeding forthe purchase of other
mining properties.
The first work undertaken this
year by the syndicate will be the
installation of a water main from
Falls Creek, through the centre of
the town. The main will be large
enough to supply the needs of a
niuoh larger town, and ample water
will be available at all times.
A Hydro-electric plant will be
installed on Granite Creek, and
will be used for the development of
the Riverside Group. Power will
also be supplied to nearby mines.
It will be situated in the centre of
a rioh mineral district, and among
adjacent properties is the LaRose,
Speculator and Bunker Hill, all of
which are considered future mines
of great potentialities.
In the acquisition of the Stormer
the syndicate have a property of
great merit. It consists of four
claims and joins the LaRose on the
west. Three big ore ledges are
known to exist, one of which has
been traced on the surface for a
distance of 500 feet. Samples of
ore taken last year from the property gave assay returns of 5 per
cent, copper, while other samples
taken at a lower elevation gave, in
addition to the copper values, returns of 30 ozs. silver and $2.00
gold per ton. The Stormer is situated in the centre of a rich mineral belt, and development work
will undoubtedly prove the existence of large bodies of rich ore.

Large Audience Enjoy
United Church
The United Church Concert held
on Friday, January 27th. in the
Recreation Hall was deservedly
well attended. Steele's Concert
Orchestra was worth while entertainment of itself, and there were
also many other good numbers.
The soloists in general offered
selections appropriate to a Church
concert programme, and the rendition was uniformly good.
In tribute to the proximity of
Burns' birthday, there was a flavor
at least, Celtic, involving Erin,
Devon, and Harry Lauder, and
little Miss Nan Dunn was well re
ceived in a Scottish Dance.
There was some amusing rough-
housing in a Dentist's office and a
lot of horse-play and monologue,
which revealed considerable histrionic ability and satiric genius.
It was a programme which seemed to carry an appeal to all sections
of the audience, and the result was
a matter of, congratulation to all
involved in the presentation.
The programme was as follows
1. " Fair Maid of Perth," Anyox
Amateur Orchestra.
2. Solo, Mrs. T. W. Pinckney.
3. Scotch Dance, by Nan Dunn
4. Harry Lauder Songs, Mr,
5. Solo, Mr. J. L. Anderson
6. Recitation, Mrs. H. S. Trefry
7. Solo, Mr. W. F. Eve
8. Sketch, "The Dentist's Office"

9. "Dramatic." Anyox Amateur

10 Monologue "The Negro Parson," Dr. Trefry.
11. Solo, Mrs. V. S. McRae
12. (a) "Broken Up" (b) "A
Welcome to Anyox," Sam, Pat,
and Sandy.
13. Solo, Mr. W. R. Murdoch
14   Overture,   Selected,   Anyox
Amateur Community Orchestra.
"God Save the King"
Concentrator Team
Are Victorious
Born to Mr. and Mrs. L. J.   Mc
Quarrie at the Anyox Hospital, on
Thursday, January 26th. a son.
While almost a record crowd
was gathering to witness the
feature game on Wednesday, the
Rinky Dinks and the Concentrator
Intermediates amused the early
birds. The Concentrator was
actually in the lead at an early
stage in the game, the Rinky Dinks
attoned for this affront by more
than doubling the final score. For
the winners Ernie Barclay deserves
honorable mention, earning ten of
his team's twenty-three points,
while Stewart supplied six points
of the Concentrator's ten.
The ladies' team gave an interesting exhibition. The color
schemes were especially attractive
and even the shooting was more
than usually effective. But it was
obvious that the absence of extra
players required the limiting ofthe
pace. Five-a-side basketball is a
strain on those who can be persuaded to take part. For the
winning Mariners, Teresa Gordon
was always on the ball, and forthe
defeated Pirates, Mrs. Thorsteinson
was usually seen in the thick ofthe
fight.   The line-ups were:
Mariners: Mrs. Smith; Mrs. J.
L. Stewart 6; Misses., T. Gordon
16; A. Scott 4; Faith Cameron.
Pirates: Mrs. Thorsteinson 8;
Mrs. Cody 2; Mrs. J. D. Stewart
2; Miss Eve; Miss McKay.
The Senior game was one of the
most sternly contested struggles of
the season. It was a cup-tie game
between Concentrator aud Coke
Plant.   For the first ten minutes
Large Number Enjoy Card
Party and Dance
The Catholio Ladies were hosts
to a largely attended card party
on Wednesday, Mrs. Waterman
and Mr. Curak winning the first
prizes, and Mrs. Shields and Mr.
Grimason carrying off the consolation. The host of card-players
were reinforced by those who oame
in to dance to excellent musio provided by the Moose Orohestra and
to partake of the refreshments
there were no field goals but Coke
Plant crept up to 3-0 on free throws
by Asimus.    At the same   time
Concentrator had heart-breaking
luck in  their shooting.    Taking
time out Coke Plant put on Jack
Hill who was late arriving.    Resuming they forced the score to
seven-two, McColl having at last
netted one for Concentrator. Then
McConnachie inspired his   teammates with a beautiful long shot
and McDonald followed with another making the score at half-time
8eventosix.   Right after the interval Asimus missed a wonderful
opportunity and forthwith Concentrator leaped into the lead ou a
thrilling overhead shot by McDonald.    McConnachie took a    free
throw and MoColl made a basket
to put Concentrator four points up.
Coke Plant took time out to think
it over.   Coming back, Dodds aud
Hill both scored to tie at eleven all,
and Concentrator forthwith stopped the clock.   Resuming Dodds
scored again but McDonald again
evened it amid thunderous applause
that had   not  died   down   when
Dodds again scored, and still again.
Asimus evoked applause with   a
single-handed play,  the   struggle
continuing fiercely until the last
whistle left Coke Plant victorious
Coke Plant: Dodds 10; S. Stewart; F. Anderson; L. Jamieson 1;
T. Asimus 5; Hill 4.
Concentrator: MoLeod; McDonald 6; Hooper 2; MoColl 4; McConnachie 3; McKay; Musser.
No Word Regarding
Thursday Mail
Up to the time of going to press
no word had been received at the
Alice Arm Post Office regarding the
carrying of mail to make connections with the C. N. R. Steamship
at Anyox. Nor had any word been
received regarding a direct mail
service to and from Anyox except
that the Steamship Camosun would
carry mail from Alice Arm to Anyox
every Monday. It is hoped that the
postal authorities will shortly make
arrangements for a better mail service than at present exists, and so
relieve the intolerable position in
which the residents of Alice Arm are
Premier Mine Visited by
Serious Fire
A fire, that at one time threatened
to destroy all the buildings, occurred at the Premier Mine yesterday
afternoon (Friday.) It originated
in the Cookhouse and destroyed
the Mess House, Bunkhouse, Com-
missiarit and the Community
League Building.
When the conflagation was at
its height it was feared that the
entire camp would be wiped out,
including the concentrating mill,
but the fire was eventually brought
under control.
Supplies were rushed from Stewart in order to feed the 400 men at
the mine. The production of the
mine and mill will not be effected
by the fire. ALICE  ARM   AND   ANYOX   HERALD,   Saturday.    February   4 1928

The resolution placed on the
order table of the  Legislature on
January 25th. by H.  F.  Kergin,
M. L. A. for Atlin,  will, it is
hoped, be carried to a  successful
issue.    The resolution  asks that
negotiations   be opened  between
Canada and   the   United States
towards the acquisition by Canada
of the southern portion of Alaska,
which   is known  as the   "Panhandle."   It is a narrow strip of
coastline, which shuts the northern
portion ofthe province from the
coast,  which greatly retards the
development of   this rich hinterland.     As the   boundary   now
stands, it is necessary for all passengers and freight to pass through
American territory.    It also prohibits  a railway from having a
terminus   on  the coast north of
Stewart.   Thus, for lack of transportation this vast country is practically uninhabitated.     As   time
goes on the situation will become
more acute.   Now is the time to
act, and settle what perhaps, will
at a later period be the cause of a
serious misunderstanding between
the two countries.      There are
several ways of acquiring this piece
of land: by purchase, trading or
conquest.    It probably will never
become the spoils of war, so the
two former are the only means of
acquiring it.    If these fail it is possible that the United States would
grant Canada a strip of land from
the interior to the coast.  Following
the war Poland acquired a corridor to the coast at Dantzic,  thus
giving her an ocean port, and there
is no reason why the same could
not be applied at some point in
Speculation if rife as to what will
eventually happen to that tract of
land at Alice Arm known as the
Indian Reserve. It was surveyed
last year by the Provincial Government, and it is understood now
owned by the province. Will it
be sold to a private company or
individual, or will it be placed upon
the market by the government.
The latter procedure would be
more satisfactory to those living on
the Reserve and would also be
better business for the government.
Consolidated Accounts
For 50 Per Cent, of
Mineral Output
Final figures of the production
of Consolidated Miuing& Smelting
Co. for tho past year show the
company's revenue to have fallen
$8,000,000 below 1926. There was
a drop of 20,000 ounces in gold,
and of nearly 3,000,000 pounds
copper. Silver production was
about the same for both years, but
there was an increase of 30,000,000
pounds in lead and of 12,000,000
pounds iu zinc.
The drop in value was mainly
due to the lower prices ruling for
lead and zinc. Had the same
prices prevailed in 1927 as in 1926,
the company's production would
have reached the astounding figure
of |44,156,078. As it is, the company accounts for 50 per cent, of
the total mineral production ofthe
province, including coal, structural
and miscellaneous minerals; and
for nearly three fourths of the
entire metal mineral output. If
the production of Granby, Britan
nia and Premier are taken into
consideration, we have the astonishing fact that these four companies account for almost theentire
metal output, leaving only $3,500,-
000 for the whole of the other
operating mines.
The copper turned out at Trail
Smelter comes almost entirely from
the Granby's Company Allenby
plant, but with its own activities
in Coast Copper, Sunloch and some
of the copper prospects recently
bonded and under development on
the Coast, the company should
again become an important producer of copper, just as it was when
operating its Rossland and boundary mines.
The past year saw the greatest
increase in the number of producers
experienced in the history of the
industry, the custom shippers to
Trail Smelter numbering 118, and
accounting for 539,082 tons. Of
these shippers the production of all
except seventeen was under 1000

Silver Production
Silver production for the world
shows no definite signs of deolining,
according to the latest figures of
the A. B. of M. S. for August,
the most recent month for which
complete figures are available, the
total was 20,178,000 oz„ compared
with 19,140,000 for July and 16,
697,000 for August in 1926. All
of these figures include the production of countries that in 1926 produced 88 per cent of the world's
total. Based on averages for ten
months, rates of production in both
the United States and Canada are
somewhat lower than in 1926.

Champion Stallions of Four Countries
1. "Lord Willingdon," tlO.OOO Clydesdale, one of the finest Stallions ever bred In the Old Country. - ■• 2. W. J. McCallum, at left, about
to board plane lor Paris on horse-buying, tour.     3. C. P. R. Freighter "Bollngbroke."     4. "Commander of Morston," an English
champion Included In the shipment.
What is considered to be the finest
and most valuable shipment of
horses ever to reach Canada arrived
in Montreal recently from England
and Europe on board the Canadian
Pacific freighters, Bosworth and
Bolingbroke. The animals are owned
by W. J. McCallum of Brampton,
Ont., and Regina, Sask., and represent the pick of the champion
heavy horses of England, Scotland,
France and Belgium, having been
purchased by Mr. McCallum during
a 20,000-mile motor tour of the rural
areas of the British Isles and the two
countries of Europe. The horses
were shipped to Brampton prior to
being exhibited at the Winter Fairs to
be held within the next few weeks at
Toronto, Chicago, Guelph and Ottawa. Some idea of the value of the
large shipment, can be obtained by
the fact that one of the horses included in the shipment, "Lord Willingdon" was purchased by Mr. McCallum for a price exceeding $10,000.
Over a Quarter of a million dollars
has been invested by Mr. McCallum,
in Percherons, Clydesdales, Suffolks
and Belgians. His first shipment to
Canada this year included 14 animals
which reached Montreal in August.
The owner who crossed from England
this trip aboard the Metagama,
personally looks after the important
details in connection with the handling of his horses.
Questioned as to the damage done
to the horse industry through the
introduction of tractors and other
mechanical farm implements to take
the place of horses, Mr. McCallum
stated that gasoline had done all the
damage to the horse industry possible. There was a scarcity of good
horses in Canada and Great Britain,
he said, due to the fact that the
number of • good horses bred had
greatly decreased. He believes that
the introduction of high-class animals into the country will go a long
way towards stimulating the raising
of better quality horses.
The history of a groat number of
| his horses carry the record of championships won at practically all the
lairs and exhibitions in Great Britain, France and Belgium. "Lord
Willingdon," the stallion for which
he paid over $J4,000, is the most
valuable horse with the present lot
and one of the finest horses ever
bred overseas. He was the only two-
year-old winning double 'championships in Scotland this year, being
champion at the Royal Show, Newport, Scotland, and champion at the
Kilmarnock Snow. This stallion will
go back to Scotland for breeding
Mr. McCallum's up-to-date method
of engaging in the horse-buying industry is borne out by the fact that
he does considerable travelling by air,
and he recounts many exciting incidents when forced landings were
made on account of fogs and stormy
weather. His systematic tours of
rural districts in England, Scotland
and Europe are done, however, by
motor during the summer months.

The discovery of a New York
angler may be of interest to local
fisherman. He relates that he
soaked an angleworm in whisky,
put it on the hook and made a
perfect cast. There was a great
commotion and he caught a trout.
The whisky-soaked angleworm
had seized the fish by the throat
with a stranglehold.
The average man puts a greater
value upon a favor he bestows
than upon one he receives.

This photograph, taken outside
the Union Station, Winnipeg, is of
a group of prominent United States
farmers, who have been looking
over settlement prospects in Saskatchewan and some of whom have
purchased land. They were brought
to Canada in September by Capt. L.
•B. Boyd, superintendent of the
land, colonization and development
department of the Canadian National Railways at St. Paul, Minnesota, and were interested in the
Eston, Tyner Valley and Snipe
Lake districts, on the Canadian Na
tional Railways. Their excursion
resulted in the purchase of 1G quarter sections vulued at $56,320, and
a number of other deals are pending. Those farmers belong to tho
States of Nebraska and Kansas
and are all well established and possessed of considerable capital.
Some of them have relatives and
friends already settled in the
Tyner Valley district and have been
urged by them to come to Canada.
Others, not moving themselves, are
taking land for their sons.
