High Values From
the Lone Maid
Ore Carries Big Gold Values
The Lone Maid property suddenly
jumped into the lime-light' during
filie week, when it beoame known
that a sample of ore from that
property had given returns of over
300 ozs. of gold per ton.
In an interview with the Herald,
one of the owners stated that the
sample in question had given
returns of 307 ozs. gold. How
much more of this ore was in
the tunnel he oould ndt say. Other
samples which have been assayed
at various times haye given over
$50.00 per ton iu gold and silver,
and another sample recently
assayed gave 59ozs. silver and $7.50
gold per ton.
• The samples assayed last week
were taken by the owners to Anyox
about three months ago, and as
they were similar to other speci-
rSmens it did not seem necessary to
if get them assayed. It was however
t decided to run them and the
tojwners received a pleasant surprise
when the high value of the ore was
known. The standard price of
, pure gold is $20.00 per ounce, whioh
gives ore oarrying 307 ozs. gold, a
value of $6,140.00 per tori. In
addition to the gold values the ore
carries 146 ounces of silver per ton.
The Lone Maid joins the Esperanza on the north and is owned by
a number of Anyox people who
acquired the property last fall and
work was commenced on a surface
showing. This vein, which is
about 4 feet wide is composed of
several small veins, from 2 to 8
inches thick. This vein was1 followed for,a distance of 50 feet and
it was then deoided to leave it and
drive the tunnel so that it would
cut the vein | of the Alice, 'which
also shows on (the surface on the
Lone Maid. The samples of ore
recently assayed were jjaken from
the tunnel a distance of about 40
feet from the portal. When the
gold bearing vein was left the'small
veins composing, the lead were
commencing to widen out, and it is
very probably that they will eventually merge together forming a
body of solid ore.
In regard to future development
of the property, the owners have
deoided to continue driving the
tunnel until it intersects the Alice
vein which it is expeoted will be
.done at a distance of about 15 more
^feet. In regard to working the
high grade veins no plans have
yet been made.
Boat Schedule Changed

The Travels of
the Herald
A number of our Anyox and
Alice Arm readers who receive4
the Herald each week, and peruse
its columns for the local news,
never perhaps have realized that
the same news they read each
week, is carried throughout the
world, but such is the case. The
Herald finds its way each week
into Alaska; it is read in every
province of the Dominion; it
crosses to the U. S. A. and finds
a welcome from the International
Boundary to the burning sands of
Arizona; it is read among the rush
and roar of New York city; it is
read each week from the Highlands of Scotland to the south
coast of England; it also finds its
way to the busy streets of London,,
and receives a welcome among the
mountains of Sweden, and it also
carries its message to the sunny
shores of Australia. Those that
follow mining are filled with the
wanderlust and that is probably
why our subscribers are scattered
throughout the world. We are
constantly receiving subscriptions
from people who have an interest
in the district, and also a .renewal
from old subscribers, who want to
keep in touch with the north
country. Generally an appreciative letter is enclosed with the
subscription, which helps considerably to lighten the constant grind
of publishing a weekly newspaper.
A live local paper is the greatest
asset any community can possess.
It scatters broadcast the doings of
the district each week; and holds to-
together in a bond of brotherhood
those who have lived here, and
expect some day to return. It tells
the world of the progress being
made each week and also
of the vast possibilities possessed
by the district. By supporting
your local paper in every possible
manner you are actively engaged
in building a solid foundation for
the future of the district in which
you live.

Copper demand is quieter with
moderate sales at 17 3-8 cents delivered
and one or two carload lots sold as
high as 17 1-2 cents. European buying is small and aside ship demand
meager. Feeling in London is that
the last one cent advance in price of
copper has been too rapid, Consequently standard has sold off, and
consumers abroad are out of market
until more definite news comes out of
the Ruhr.
Domestic consumers are buying only
moderately. Both wire and Brass
mills are booked well ahead at present
rate and are becoming reluctant to
take on much more business for second
quarter as they are apprehensive,
labor difficulties may prevent their
being able to make deliveries scheduled
on present bookings.
While fabricators' bookings during
the last two days have amounted to
well over 6,000,000 pounds of finished
product, it is believed that they are
sufficiently covered so that they will
not be forced to buy much more metal
for several weeks. Consequently the
probability is that domestic buying
will remain moderate until Ruhr
developments cause European consum
ers to begin again to buy in good
volume. In that eventuality another
rapid advance in price can be expected.
Quieting down of the market makes it
problematical whether a firm price of
17 1-2 cents will be reached by next
week. However, no decline of price is
to be expected as all companies are
well booked as to output for the next
three months. An offer by a producer
for graduated shipments throughout
the last six months of the year at 171-4
cents aside ship hasdeen turned down
by important export buyers,
Boston—Berlin copper correspondent
reports conviction is general that
copper will go to around 18 cents and
stabilize at that price for a time,
Exporters point out that American producers cannot avoid increasing their
prices under pressure of labor demands
and the huge American consumption.
But, 'they say, in - the long run high
prices will stimulate production, and
the quantity will once more benefit
Europe. As for Germany which
usually absorb a full third of American
export of virgin copper, employment
of copper manufacturers in non-occupied districts continues good, not
only in making up for the falling Ruhr
manufacturer but because aluminum
consignments from the Rhineland
across the new eastern custom lines
are forbidden by the Franco-Belgian
military so that light metal is to be
replaced by copper in many instances.
Ore Production and/Values
of the Premier Mine (or
the Past Year
The first annual report issued recently by the Premier Gold Mining Co.
Ltd- states that during the past year
development work consisted of 12,270
feet of drifts and raises. The ore
mined amounted to 102,334 tons of
which 32,344 tons were milled; 41,775
tons were shipped to the Tacoma
smelter; besides 4125 tons of concentrates. Shipments to Anyox smelter
aggregated 28,215 tons. The production was: Goldl27,8I7oz8.; silver 4,474
387 ozs. The total value of known ore
reserves is $12,407,000.
The value realized from ore sales for
the year was $4,782,885.43. Cost of
mining and milling aggregated $1,022,
508.00, leaving a gross profit of $3,760,
378.70. Cost of taxes, management
depreciation add $805,733.50.

Continued from page 1.
The Counoil did not favor supplying the players with shoes. There
was considerable discussion, the
matter being finally left with the
Finance Committee to deal with,
Dr. Harper, Chairman of Choral
i and Dramatio Committee told of
progress in connection with the
Concert, whioh he and Mrs. Kelley
j were to stage on the night of the
llth.    Vice-President'    Callanan
;, asked if the League would support
|, the C. M. C. team if it was deoided
to enter a fourth team in the base*
ball league,  and  if  the  Smelter
: uniforms would be available. This
was'agreed to.   The action of the
' Secretary hi starting the work on
the tennis court when the help was
available endorsed.
In the matter of the drive for
membership, it was decided to give
a prize for the biggest list of new
statement members turned in.
Mr. Simpson thought it, would
be a good thing if the Gym. instructor; Mr. Cheshire, could be kept in
the employ of the League all summer as a groundsman. Mr. Callanan brought the matter of the
summer oamp to the attention of
the meeting, and was of the opinion that it wasn't too early to
commence figuring on it.
Mr. Selfe suggested that it
would be mighty good for business
Tjif the Community League   could
I<$have the privilege of taking the
F'iOranby Company's coupons.    The
(Secretary was instructed to interview   the   management   of    the
fGranby Company to this end.
What pur Representatives in
Victoria are Doing
Viotoria, April 10tn.—Premier
Oliver has made a fresh avowal of
his determination to fight the
freight rates case to the finish and
at recent public meetings has declared that there can be no genuine
understanding and unity between
east and west until British Columbia is granted the same rate tariffs
as are enjoyed by the eastern
provinces. He has now left on a
speaking tour of Alberta and Saskatchewan.
A careful census of industry in
British Columbia, made by the department of industries, under Hon,
John Hart, "shows that hot for ten
years in this province has there
been such industrial activity. A
labor shortage is imminent reports
the minister of labor, Attorney'
General Manson and little encour
agement is being given men to go
to the prairies to assist in spring
seeding. "Every available worker
will.be needed in this provinoe by
May 1st." is Hon. Mr. Manson's
statement, and bearing this out
comes the announcement of an ia
crease in lumber prices owing to
higher wages being paid lumber
The government labor bureau
are already unable to supply the
demand for men in some industries
and  indications  are  that higher
iges will be paid generally
throughout the province this year.
Part of the oredit for this ^return
of prosperous conditions is given
the Oliver government for itB ecc*
nomical administration during the
trying years.
