Well Known Mining
Man Visits Alice Arm
Mr. John Devlin, who is a well
known mining man of British
Columbia, arrived in Alice Ann on
Monday, in order to gather information in regard to mining developments and future prospects of
the camp.
Since he has been here, Mr,
Devlin lias gathered a wealth of
information, and he intends to
return at an early date and spend
the coming summer in the district.
He was amazed at the lack of
publicity being given to the camp
in the south, and is sure that when
proper publicity is given the Toric
mine, and the mineral wealth of
the district if broadcasted, that
Alice Arm will become a mining
camp second to none in the province. In fact, he predicts considerable mining activity this year.
Mr. Devlin is a much travelled
man. He spent last year examining the new mining fields of northern Quebec, and has traversed the
lorthern Ontario fields throughout. He is confident that if such
large ore bodies can be discovered
so easily  on   the Toric,   that  the
possibilities   of   the   district    are
.*■',. 	
worth investigating.
Alice Arm   Fails   To
Support Local
Organization
At the public meeting held last
Saturday evening at the Coliseum,
about fifteen were present. The
chair was taken by Mr. J. M.
Morrison. Owing to the lack of
interest shown by the small attendance, it was the general opinion
of the meeting that to form an
organization at the present time
was useless. No business was
therefore done, and the meeting
was adjourned.
It is with regret that we are
forced to publish the above report
of the meeting, which was called
for the purpose of forming an
organization for the advancement
of the mining industry as its chief
aim. Owing to the failure of tin
people to support an organization
that would benefit every inhabitant
of the town, it is possible that another year will be lost before anything is done. Unless everyom
gives their whole hearted support
to such an organization, it is a
waste of valuable time to form one.
and a folly to try and carry on.-—
Ed.
If   Not on Voters' List,
Get On
Those who are desirous of getting on the Voters' List, must
have their application in the hands
of the Registrar of Voters at
Anyox, on or before April 1st,
Mr. J. Conway is the registrar of
voters. A court of revision will
be held on May 18th. at tlie
1 Government Office, Anyox.
Reports received from the
Toric Mine during the week,
state that the No. 1 crosscut
tunnel is in ore a distance of
147 feet, and the hanging
wall has not yet been reached.
As the No. 1 West crosscut
encountered the hanging wall
at a distance of 97 feet, it
indicates that the ore body
has considerably widened or
taken a very sharp turn. If
it has widened to such an
extent, the ore body is much
bigger than was supposed last
week.

The Bluebirds, champions of the
Anyox Ladies League, defeated
tlie Maple Leafs, winners of the

remained for the rest of the game,
the final score standing 12 to 7
Tlie pace was fast and furious. L
the first quarter, the Rupert girls-
tried hard to tie up the count, but
they were checked too close to do
any good. The visitors were a
classy aggregation of basketball
players, and the local squad are. to
be congratulated on their victory.
It is hard to choose any particular
stars of the contest, as all players
turned in a neat performance.
Mrs. McQuarrie was the leading
scorer for Anyox with eight points
to her credit. Miss M. Harvey
was high for Prince Rupert with
four.   Geo. Lee was the referee.

As a preliminary to the big
game, the Mine Intermediates took
on an all-star quintette. The game
was fast and rough with the all-
stars leading right up to the last
few minutes. The Miners, however, were the best finishers, and
romped home winners by a 28 to
19 count. V. Moore and L. Moore
did the scoring for the winners
with ten points each, Lazoreck for

Mr. Charles Bocking Is
Granby Company's New
General Manager
Has    Had    Distinguished
Career With America's
Leading   Copper
Operator
Mr. Charles Bocking arrived in
Anyox on Monday, accompanied
by Mr. H. S. Munroe. Mr. Booking is the new general manager of
the Granby Co., and will take full
control on May 1st., on the retirement of Mr. H. 8. Munroe, who
has been general manager of the
Granby Co. for the past five years
Mr. Munroe is retiring at his own
urgent request. Ho anticipates a
well earned vacation, after which
he will re-engage iu mining.
Mr. Bocking, who was interviewed by the Herald, on Monday,
a few hours after his arrival, stated in answer to a question regarding future plans at Anyox, that
until ho had thoroughly acquainted himself with the plant, he could
not say anything regarding Future
developments. In regard to a resumption of operations at Allenby,
lie said, that at the 'present time
no definite plans had been made.
Mr. Bocking comes to Anyox
with a wide experience in mining
and metallurgy. He has held a
number of responsible positions in
the milling world. The following
article, taken from the British
Columbia Financial Times, gives a
short history of the business life of
Granby Company's new general
manager.
"Mr. Bocking comes from Butte,
Montana, where he has been
general superintendent of the Butte
and Superior Mining Company for
the last ten years. Previous to
that he was associated with the
Utah Copper Company, which has
close associations with the Butte
and Superior, and both belong to
the numerous copper mining enterprises under the direction of Mr.
D. C. Jaokling, probably the largest copper mine operator in the
world. Mr. Bocking, therefore
conies to British Columbia with a
wealth of experience, both as an
operating official and as an
executive, and one who has been
especially fortunate in a long association with the leading copper
mining engineer and metallurgist
of North America. With his record of achievement and experience,
the Granby affairs in British
Columbia are safe in his hands.
Mr. Bocking also has an impressive personality. Strong, forceful
and kindly, he inspires confidence,
and he will soon draw to himself
the warm support and the close cooperation that have attended the
management of his predecessor."
Mr. and Mrs, J, S.' Stewart
and son. arrived from the south on
the Cardena, last Monday.

Are We Wise Is Witholding
Publicity?
The sparsely attended meeting
held last Saturday, and the lack of
enthusiasm shown by those present,
indicates that the people of Alice
Arm do not wish to advertise the
mining possibilities of the district.
In the meantime other districts are
forging ahead, while we are wallowing in a backwater, blaming
everyone but ourselves because the
possibilities of the district are not
more widely known. It is'nt
possible that Alice Arm is right,
and the rest of the province is
wrong, because facts prove different. Money is pouring into
every mining district of the province for development purposes,
due to the publicity these districts
have received. Under the present system in vogue at Alice
Arm, the Vancouver Chamber of
Mines is kept in complete ignorance of local mining activity, and
the general impression of the district
on the outside, is that it is dead.
Individual efforts have been
made to give the district publicity,
but individual efforts are futile, unless the individual is prominent in
mining circles, and gentlemen of
this calibre are extremely scarce in
the district. Meanwhile, we shall
continue to give the district as
much publicity as possible, but if
we could obtain the united support of everyone, our hand would
be considerably strengthened. In
giving publicity, we intend to adhere strictly to the truth, every
mining news item will be investigated before being published.
We believe this policy is the best
for the district, and our readers can
rely on the truth of any mining
news published in the Herald.
Wonderful Ore Bodies
Being Proven On
Engineer Mine
Sensational new ore discoveries
have been reported from in the
Engineer mine on Taku Arm of
Tagish Lake, on the Yukon-British
Columbia border, near Carcross..
According to a report from
Atlin, a crosscut tunnel has cut
two rich veins. One vein, known
as the Bonanza E" vein, was cut
at a depth of 350 feet and disclosed
seven rich shoots running from
$300 to $7,190 a ton in gold. Another vein, the Double Decker, was
cut at a depth of 250 feet and
showed seven rich sections.
The No. 4 vein has been drifted
on for 30 feet and on the 250i'oot-
level and is reported to have showed values as high as $5000 a ton
in gold. The main tunnel is being
extended and should intersect all
of the large veins of the property
in April.
It appears from present development that the veins are about one-
fifth high grade along the strike of
the vein with the balance low
grade ore running from $2 to $30
a ton.
Engineers, who have examined
the property, believe that when
the development work is completed in April, the Engineer mine
will have blocked out the largest-
reserve of high grade gold ore of
any mine on the North American
continent.

Atlantic Salmon Eggs  For

This week marks another milestone in the history of the Granby
Co. The big plant at Anyox
passes under new management,
and the destinies of the company,
whose activities are scattered
throughout the province will be
guided by Mr. Chas. Bocking.
During the past six years, fortune
has not smiled very freely on the
Granby Co., but the rise in price
of copper indicates that better
times are ahead. A large amount
of hard work, however, remains to
be done, before the Granby Co.

prosperity, and we wish Mr. Bocking all success in taking over the
manifold responsibilities of the
company, and hope that he will

In the eyes of all northern British

Fox Farming Profitable
That fox farming in the interior
of B. C. is a profitable industry is
being deinonsta'ted by Messrs.
Olsen & Green of Jellicoe, near
Princeton, who last week sold
seven pelts For $1300.
This firm reports the conditions
splendid for black fox farming, all
f their animals doing splendidly.
WHY WORRY
You can win a victory over your
ears, when you stop trying to get
away, and turn to face them fairly.
Phey are like harking dogs that
snap at Hying heels.
Worry is the biggest fake in life,
It's the world's greatest skin game.
It cheats men out of strength and
happiness and pays not the slightest returns.
A calm mind will face and overcome.

consolation prize, Charles Thompson.
Mr. Mike Cranley won a special
prize for butting into a bridge

cage or a cradle for it.
At 10.30 refreshments were
served in the Dugout. While the
guests were being served coffee,
etc., Brother Jack Austin and Sid.
