Big Ore Strike Made
on Sunrise Property
McGrath Mn.
That the McGrath mountain section of the Alice Arm district contains unusually large surface showings of lead-zinc ore is now well
known. Each year this fact is emphasized by the discovery of some
new showing.
This year's prospecting is no exception to the general rule for Morris R. Bernsichke who is interested
in this section located a showing on
the Sunrise group that ranks among
the largest. He has put in 100 feet
of open cuts in proving it up.
The discovery was made on the
Silver Bent Fraction. It has been
traced for 1500 feet on the surface
and four crosscuts driven across it.
The ore body is from 16 to 4 feet
wide and has a north and south
A offshoot of ore from this body
having a south-easterly strike is 10
feet wide at the intersection, at 100
feet distant 9 feet wide and at an
additional 175 feet is 4 feet wide.
An average sample has assayed 22
per cent zinc and 2 per cent lead.
Another vein, which parallels
the first mentioned, has been traced
for six claim lengths. It has been
open cut on every claim, and can be
traced into the Standard.
A number of the properties on
McGrath mountain have been
grouped. They are known as the
Sunrise Group and comprise 19
claims, and traverse the summit of
the mountain. These claims contain some exceptionally fine surface
showings of ore, and their development in the near future is confidently
The Standard has also some big
showings, also the Billy Mac, which
joins the Standard. The Anyox has
an ore vein 12 feet wide, and has
been traced for 500 feet. It lies
west of the Billy Mac and Standard.
The ore showings on McGrath
mountain probably rank among the
largest in the province. They cover
a large area, and requires big capital to develop. It is adjacent to
tide water, and the topography will
admit cheap mining and milling of
The Sunrise was staked by G.
W. Morley in 1912. He has done
a large amount of development
work, and deserves great credit for
his tenacity and faith in this section
of the district.
Everything   Necessary
for Enjoyable Time
At Picnic
The annual picnio of the Alice
Arm Anglican Churoh Sunday
Sohool was held at Campers point
on Saturday under ideal weather
conditions. All the children ofthe
town were present, and also a
hrge number of adults.
Canon Rushbrook oonveyed
everyone to the soene of festivities
from tlie wharf on board the
"Northern Cross" several trips
being neoessary. All being gathered a hearty luncheon was partaken of in a leafy bower near the
During the afternoon, bathing
was indulged in on the sandy beach
by both adults and children.
Races were also held, in which
everyone took part, and a most enjoyable time was spent.
The day was one of the hottest
of the year, but the air at Campers
Point was tempered by a cool
breeze blowing up the inlet from
the ocean.
Two freezers filled with icecream
were quickly disposed of, and an
abundance of good things were on
hand, the latter being supplied by
the ladies of the town.
The day's festivities closed with
tlni evening meal, when preparations were made for the journey
home, the first boat leaving shortly
after the repast.
The annual picnic is a red letter
day in the lives of all the children
and also a large number of adults.
Great oredit is due to the ladies
for the excellent refreshments provided and ideal arrangements and
also to Canon Rushbrook for his
untiring efforts in crowning the
day's success by many thoughtful

Important Business Was
Discussed School Board
The annual meeting of the Alice
Arm School Board was held in the
School last week.
As usual, the attendance was
small. The chair was taken by J.
A Anderson.
H. F. Kergin, M. L. A. was
elected trustee in place of J. A.
Anderson, whose term of office expired this year.
Mrs. W. M. Cummings was
re-elected auditor.
The members of the School Board
for the coming year are as follows:
Al. Falconer, secretary; G. Anderson, H. F. Kergin, trustees, and
Mrs. Cummings, auditor.
It is probable that a further meeting be shortly called to discuss the
question of school teacher's salary,
which has been revised this year by
the Department of Education. Formerly the government paid the
whole salary, but this year the
district is called upon to pay half.
The reason for the change is that
in former years Alice Arm was
classed as an unorganized district,
while this year it is classed as an
organized district. Secretary Al.
Falconer was directed to communicate with the Superintendent of
Education regarding the matter.and
a further meeting will be called when
a reply has been received.
Granby Declares June
Granby, which has resumed

Should the curtailment in output
now effeoted by the large copper
producers result in raising the
price of the metal, Granby should

The bride was given in marriage
by her cousin, Mr. W. F. Barclay.
She wore a white tailored dress
with hat to match. Mr. Alex.
Crear was the best man.
On their arrival at Silver City,
where a large number of Anyox
people are holidaying, they were
greeted by the discharge of firearms
and congratulations of their many
friends. A wedding breakfast was
later partaken of at the home of
Mr. and Mrs. W. F. Barclay.
The wedding took everyone by
surprise, no one having any knowledge of the event, except a few intimate friends.
Both bride and groom are well
known in Anyox, and are residents
of several years. The bride was
formerly matron at the General
Hospital, and the groom is on the
staff of the Drafting Office. They
have a large circle of friends who
wish them happiness in their
future life.
Alice Arm Sends Ore Display
to Vancouver Exhibition
Au ore display destined for the
Vancouver Exhibition was shipped
from Alice Arm on Monday. The
display contained some fine specimens, including silver, copper, lead
and zinc, and will give visitors to
the mineral exhibit an idea of our
mineral resources. A number of
property owners were tardy in forwarding samples, which is regretted. The display is representative
of the district, but samples from
several more well known properties
would have considerably increased
its value. The ore was shipped by

A new mining camp has many
heartbreaking hardships to endure
before it reaches the stage of
permanent production. This stage
is only reached after some wealthy
mining company has developed a
property on a large scale, erected
huge reduction plants, and can
mine and mill their ores at an
extremely low cost. Until that
happy event is reached, life in a
mining camp is insecure. A raw
prospect takes years to develop.
Often a promising property is
"thrown up" by a mining company
as not satisfactory. It may later
be further developed by another
company, who have the advantage
of previous work, and ultimately
brought it in as a big producer.
The reason for stopping the development of a mining property are
many; often a certain amount of
money is appropriated for development purposes, and operations
cease when this has been expended if a large tonnage of ore has
not been developed. Other
causes are a tightening of money
after work has started, or the
transferring of money to some
other project other than mining.
The withdrawal of an influential
mining company from a district is
serious handicap to its development, but it does not mean that the
country is worthless or even the
property that was being developed.
Often a property will be abandoned by one company and then
taken up by another and brought
to the production stage. The
famous Premier is an illustration,
and also the Big Missouri, both in
the Stewart district. A year or so
ago the Guggenheim interests
abandoned the Duthie mine near
Smithers, and since that time it has
been operated successfully and a
concentating mill installed. The
Standard Silver-Lead Co. who
were developing the Richfield
mine at Topley near Smithers,
threw it up last week, but plans
are already being made by the
owner, F. H. Taylor for a renewal
of development. Alice Arm has
had its reverses in this respect, but
development goes on, those coming
later profiting by the mistakes of
former developers. The abandonment of a property does result in i
Price of Copper Shows
Signs of Upward
Copper has continued its upward
course, begun three weeks ago,
with a further increase in the vol
lime of business, whioh was the
best for seven weeks. Last Thurs
day little metal remained available
at concessions from 12-jj-c. in the
East and a good tonnage was sold
in the Middle West at 12fo. Friday was particularly active at 12jic.
delivered in the East, and on Saturday the bulk of a good business
was done at 12|c. in the East.
This continued on Monday, and on
Tuesday nothing was available
under 12fc. and sales were made
at 12jc, some of the metal being
for Connecticut delivery. Today
prices have ranged from 12.80 to
12|c, with the higher level apparently well established this afternoon
The attitude of sellers is very different from that displayed on former
occasions this year when the
market has started upwards. They
seem confident that buyers are in
need of metal for early requirements, and in this view they are
supported by the fact that the great
bulk of the recent business has been
for August delivery. Some sellers
have declined to take business for
October at current levels. Although
the June statistics fail to reveal
any consequential decline iu the
rate of world production, the leading producers seem confident that
curtailment still will prove to be
more than a gesture. One factor
in the strength of the domestic
market is the unusually active
buying abroad, done during the
last week at the fixed price of 13c,
c. i. f. Germany is the outstanding
customer, but France and Great
Britain have participated. Standard copper has advanced sharply
in London.—Engineering and Mining Journal, July 23rd.

temporarily retarding development,
but it does not prove that a camp
is valueless.
During the past few weeks we
have experienced one of the hot
test spells in history, and it is
possible that further hot weather
will be our lot during this month.
The woods are extremely dry and
everyone entering them should
use extreme caution in regard to
lighting fires, throwing away
matches or cigarette ends. This
rule should also be observed
around town. A fire started now
would quickly be out of control,
and would probably devastate the
entire district.

Lode mining has only been in progress for about 25 years, and only about one-half of the Province has
been even prospected; 200,000 square miles of unexplored mineral bearing land are open for prospecting.
The Mining Laws of this Province are more liberal and the fees lower than those of any other Province
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 Reports of the Minister of Mines. Those considering
mining investments should refer to such reports. They are available without charge on application

North Has Everything
For Prosperity
Recent return of the Board of
Trade party from the North has
revived appreciation in Vancouver
of the wonderful strides the north
Pacific is making.
With Prince Rupert as headquarters, this great empire is growing at an unprecedented rate.
The foundation of a wheat port
have already been laid up there.
The fisheries of the district are
rich beyond count.
Prince Rupert is the centre of
one of the richest mining areas iu
the whole world. The paper mills
forecast the development of industrial prosperity.
This growth which has excited
the admiration of the Board of
Trade party seems based on the
substantial qualities which make
oities and districts great.—Vanoouver Sun.
Vancouver   Island  Contains
Big Pulp Areas
It is stated that two thirds of
the pulpwood of British Columbia—
about 125 billion feet—is located
on Vancouver Island and that it is
of superiorquality for paper making
and very dense in stand. Moreover
there is distributed over the Island
about 500,000 undeveloped horsepower or available energy in rivers
and waterfalls awaiting harnessing
to supply power for the pulp and
paper mills of the future. Though
42 million dollars has been invested
in the pulp and paper mills of
British Columbia, this development
is comparatively insignificant in
comparison with the province's resources, and its unrivalled position
for export to the Western United
States, Asia and Australia.

May with no time lost resulting
from injuries received while on
duty. Employees of the under

Corporation had previously worked
an entire inonth with no time lost

Provincial Pay Roll Breaks
Unparalleled progress in industries of British Columbia and a
payroll breaking all records is recorded in the annual report of the

wage bill being in almost every

Away back in the late sixties thousands of
acres of British Columbia's timber were
sold for one cent per acre, which looked
like a fair price—then. To-day similar
timber is worth from $150 to $200 an acre,
so tremendously has timber appreciated in
value within the scope of an average lifetime.
What the young growth of to-day will be
worth sixty years from now is beyond computation if it is protected from fire   and
allowed to reach maturity.
