Union Church Musical
Evening Draw Big
Crowd
On Friday evening, Maroh 26th.
the seating capacity of tlie United
Church was taxed to the limit, the
oooasion being an entertainment
under the auspices of that "live
wire" organization known as the
Ladies' Aid.
The lirst part of the programme
was musical and of an exceptional
line quality. Mrs. J. Murdock,
Mrs. C. Ruokhaber, Mrs. H. Ann-
strong, Mrs. Tamkin and Mr. J.
Mitchell, rendered vocal solos.
Messrs. Evans and Owens of the
Mine greatly pleased the audience
with two vocal duets. Miss Leitch
and Bonny Chapman played an
instrumental duet. Mr. Wylie
Grant ably rendered a violin solo.
Mr. Dresser, Dr. Davies, Mrs. Kent
and Miss Leitch acted as accompanists.
Recitations by Jean Robertson
and Kenneth Lawn were heartily
encored. t
The main feature of the evening
was a humorous sketch "Sewing
for the Heathen." This was
splendidly produced.
The cast was as follows:
Mrs. Judd, the hostess.—Mrs.
Patrick.
Meely, the maid—Mrs. A. Roberts.
The Rich Mrs. Powers—Mrs.
Neil McLeod.
Mrs. Chesty, the President—Mrs.
H. Kirk.
Grandma Gibbs—Mrs. J. Dunn.
Mrs. Strong—Mrs. A. Crone.
Mrs. Meeker—Mrs. J. Cloke.
Mrs. Day—Mrs. Clay.
Luella Huggins—Mrs. C. Mo
Millan.
During an interval in the programme, Mr. Mitchell very ably
auctioned a quilt which had been
made by members of the Ladies'
Aid. Mrs. McAuley was highest
bidder.
|Coming Lecturer Holds
Enviable Record
On Wednesday next April 7th.
lat 8.15 p.m. in the Recreation Hall
•Walter McRaye the famous Canadian, orator traveller, and entertainer will give an interesting lecture.
|His subject will be "Canadiauizing
Danada" and reading from Canadian Poets.
Mr.  McRaye is witty, forceful
liiid entertaining, and has made a
reputation for himself from coast
lo coast.   His work has been given
Iditorial prominence last year by
Ihe    Toronto   Globe,    Hamilton
Spectator, Montreal La Press, St.
John Telegraph and St. Thomas
limes-Journal.   No greater com-
lliment   has  ever  been   paid   a
lublio man than that given Mr.
McRaye by the Canadian Club of
ft. Catharines who reengaged him
>iree times in two weeks to address
lem.
J It is very gratifying to relate
lie demand for tickets so far have
pceeded expectations, and it looks
I though the Hall will be filled to
Ivpaoity.
Many Mining Properties Will Operate
at Alice Arm During Present Year
Exceptionally Early Spring will Enable Operators to Commence Early.
Number of Properties Operating Increasing Each Year
All indications point to an early
commencement of mining activity
in the Alioe Arm district this year.
The snowfall during the past winter has be i the lightest on record
and the numerous companies planning operations will therefore be
able to start much earlier than in
former years.
J. Wells, who is in charge of
repair work on the Dolly Varden
railway anticipates that the road
will be open for traffic to the end
of steel by April 18th. This date
of completion, however, depends on
the depth of snow at Camp 8. If
the weather should turn colder and
the snow is slow iii melting the
work will be held up until the traok
is clear. There is at present only
'2\ feet of snow at Camp 8.
Iu addition to mining ooinpanies
being able to get a much earlier
start than formerly, it is interesting to note that a larger number
of companies will operate in the
district this year than in previous
years, and much valuable development work is expected to be done
before the snow flies next fall.
Following is a list of the properties that will be developed during
the coming summer.
Dolly Varden: operated by Col.
Victor Spencer and associates of
Vancouver.    Diamond drilling and
tunnel work will be done.
Toric: operated by the Consolidated Homestake Mining & Development Co. A 50-ton mill and ore
hunkers will be constructed. Mill
expected to be grinding ore by
August.
LaRose: operated by the LaRose
Mining Co. Mining and shipping
oi high grade ore will be carried
on and development work undertaken". *
Esperanza: operated by an
Anyox syndicate, who will continue mining and shipping ore. Property may shortly be sold, in which
case operations would be extended.
Matilda: operated by the Kitsault River Mining & Develop
ment Co. Further development of
large ore bodies will be continued.
A diamond drill may be installed.
Sunset property: operated by
the Keystone Mining Co. Development of knownlarge ore bodies
will be carried out. A compressor
plant will be installed to expediate
operations.
Speculator: operated by J. 0,
Trethewey. It is near the LaRose,
and development is expected to
prove existence of considerable
high grade ore.
Devlin Zinc: operated by Anglo
Belgian Mines Ltd. Development
will consist of driving tunnels.
Bellvue: operated by a Vancouver syndicate. Is in Illiance River
valley, and extension of present
tunnels will be undertaken.
Wolf: operated by J. Fiva. Is
near Esperanza. Shipment of
high grade silver ore was made
last fall. Tunnel is being driven
at present.   B
Eagle: operated by G. W. Mc-
Morris and associates of Vancouver
Near the LaRose, contains some
good showings of silver ore.
With the exception of the Wolf,
all of the above properties will be
operated by outside.capital, and it
is a pleasure to note that the majority of this money has been subscribed by British Columbians, who
are realizing the advantages obtainable by developing their latent
mineral wealth.
In addition to the above mentioned, numerous properties will be
developed by their owners, and* it
is ■extremely probable that other
properties will be bonded this year,
by mining companies, and work
commenced. Alice Arm is now
receiving its merited attention, and
the list of operating properties will
grow each year.

High School & Gophers
Win Basketball
Championships
The basketball season was
brought to a close on Wednesday
evening, 24th. with what proved
to be three of best games staged at
Beach Gymnasium this year. The
Rupert "Maple Leafs" again defeated the Mine girls, but this time
by. the narrow margin of one point.
The local girls certainly deserved
to win, after leading 10-7 at the
start of the third period, but fate
was against them and with the
score tied at 11 all and a bare five
seconds to go, two free throws
were awarded the visitors, one of
which found the net just as the
final whistle blew. The local girls
clearly demonstrated their superiority in combination play as compared
to the visitors, but fell down sadly
in their shooting throughout the
series.
Don McLeod handled the whistle
in a highly satisfactory manner.

High School Win Intermediate League
The High School captured the
Intermediate championship by virtue of their victory over the Concentrator. The score was 33 to 22.
The losers put up quite a struggle
for the first twenty minutes, but
were absolutely out of the picture
during the second half. Luzorek
was the high scorer with eleven
points, closely followed by McLachlan and Swanson with 8 each.
Swan'son netted some beautiful
baskets From centre which helped '
materially iu his team's victory.

Gopjiers Win the Simmons
Cup
In the Senior tilt which followed
the Intermediate contest, the
Gophers annexed the Simmons
Cup, emblematic of the. Senior
championship, by a 22 16 count.
The Miners started off with a rush
running up 7 points before the
champions hit their stride, but the
latter soon overcame the lead and
at half time were in front 14-11.
Upon resumption of the play the
losers made a gallant attempt to
catch up, but unfortunately they
lost the services of two regulars
through unavoidable accidents and
in consequence lost their chance of
winning also. Lane and Halverson
were the players injured the former

The editorial referring, to revival of mining in the Alice Arm
district, recently published in the
Portland Canal News, was a  nice
pat on the back for those who
had enough confidence in the camp
to carry on during the past five
lean years.    It is true that a number of us have faced a large number of obstacles during recent years
which sometimes seemed to   be
insurmountable,   but  that is the
spirit that has laid the foundations
of the present mighty British   Empire.   Its sons knows not defeat
and the gloomier the outlook the
greater is the determination to hang
on until the tide turns and fortune
smiles once again,    There   are
always a number of ''fair weather"
fellows, who flit from one camp to
another, always trying to get in on
the ground floor of a boom town,
and leaving as quick as does a rat
from a burning ship, if a slight depression    comes along.     Mining
camps are not developed by   this
class of fine weather flyers, but
by those who have the backbone,
grit and perseverence to carry on
in spite of all obstacles, and finally
win out.   A mining camp is not
the place for a person who lacks
optimism or   vision, such a man
should never have left the old
homestead, but should still be herding sheep on some barren hillside.
Alice Arm is emerging from its
quiet period, and those whose confidence refused to be shaken  will
shortly win the result of their perseverence.   Each year will witness a big increase iamining activity
and the tenacity of a few will be
instrumental in producing another
big camp, which will, in the years
to come, bestow her vast mining
wealth into the eager lap of  the
world.
"Fire is a terrible drain on our
forest resources, which become less
and less each year. Replanting
cannot replace the loss within the
space of centuries. Intelligent
forestry and forest protection will
help reduce the ravages of this fire
scourge, but the co-operation of
every citizen who goes into the
wild places is necessary."
Americans Praise B. C.
Mining Laws
Sixty tons of mining machinery
belonging to the Allotte Mining
Corporation of Seattle is now on
the way into the Omineca country
via Vanderhoof. The Amerioan
engineer managed to get as far
as Fort St. James with their heavy
consignment, but with the disappearance of the snow they were unable to progress. The matter was
then taken up with the B. C. provincial government whioh sent in a
large gang of men and several
tractors to out a 120-mile road
into the mineral country, which
work is now   being done.
"This government co-operation
was commented upon by the members of the Seattle Mining Club,"
says R. C. W. Lett of the C. N. R.
natural resources department, who
has just returned from a tour of
the coastal states. He says that
the American mining men consider
the B. C. mining laws to be the
best in America, and he found
them much interested in Canadian
minerals, though little was known
of the northern Alberta oil field
until the C. N. R. officials brought
the subject up before the various
groups he addressed.

Trail Company Hoped
to Increase Dividends
Belief is expressed in Montreal
financial circles that the Consolidated Mining and Smelting Co.
Ltd. shortly will increase its dividends from 6 to 12 per cent, while
bonuses in addition to dividends
are looked for. Earnings have
been greatly augmented during
the past year, and the balance sheet
for the twelve months is reported
to show earnings of approximately
$8,000,000—a 100% gain on 1924
revenues. The Trail smelter largely
depends for its ore on the Sullivan
mine, with a very substantial amount also from oilier parts of the
distriot. principally the Slooan.
Next to the Sullivan, the Silversmith at Sandon leads the list, followed by the Bluebell, Luoky Jim,
Bosun, Ruth-Hope, Galena Farm,
McAllister, Whitewater, Paradise
and many others; in fact the total
number of properties on the shipping list is about 62, which gives :\
fair idea of the wide spread aotivit
ies, especially when it is considered
that there are at least as many
again which are undergoing development and*exploration.
Thirty per cent increase in the
oapacity of the Sullivan concentrator is the object of a development programme just put in operation, acoording to A. G. Langley,
resident engineer for the Kootenay
district. When the new work is
completed, the Sullivan will employ
1,000 men or more, milling 4,000
tons of ore daily. The ore bodies
which are considered to be replacement deposits in quartzite, are immense.
Mining Company of
Stewart Wins Suit
The appeal in the case Victoria
Improvement Co. against the
Prince John Mining Co. Ltd., was
dismissed by Mr. Justioe Gregory
in the Supreme Court on Friday,
March 12th. and the property ordered transferred to the defendant
company, Prince John Mining
Co. Ltd., as a result of which it
is understood that a settlement has
been readied between the contending oompanies and development
work will be commenoed during
the coining season. This has been
a most interesting case, as it is generally understood that one of the
olaims of the plaintiff, was that
the defendants, Prince John Min-
Co., had allowed their company
free miner's certificate to expire.
Crop Now Moving West
A large percentage of the 1925
crop that remains unmarked is
steadily moving to the Pacific
coast, Canadian National Railways
figures showing that arrivals at
Vancouver from points along those
lines averaging 116 cars daily during the first half of March. Total
cars delivered at the western port
at March 15th were 17,759, almost
four times the number of cars
'sent to the western port
during the previous entire grain
season.
Prairies Have Mildest
Winter in 48 Years
Manitoba Saskatchewan • and
Alberta passed through the mildest,
winter that that part of the Dominion has experienced in 48 years,
iccording to the records of the
meteorological office.
The winters of 1877-78 still hold
the record and was much milder
than last winter.
Alberta's Coal Yield
Coal production in Alberta last
year amounted to • 5,883,394 tons,
an increase of 679,000 tons over
1924, according to the annual report of the provincial mines branch.
The report also shows that 1,148
tons of tar sands were taken from
the Waterways district during the
shipment. The total employment
in coal mines in the province was
11,175.

Yes! He Did-Not!
A spinster living in a Eondon
suburb was shocked by the language used by two men repairing
telegraph wires close to her house.
She wrote to the company on the
matter, and the foreman was asked
fo report.
This he did, in the following;
"jVlo and Bill Fairwater were on
this job. I was up on the telegraph
pole, and accidently let the hot lead
fall on Bill. It went down his
neck. Then he said: "You really;
must be more careful, Harry."
