Rapid Development Puts
Tiger Into The Limelight
The Tiger property, which is
being developed by the Utility Mining & Financing Co., is attracting
a great deal of attention in the
district. The reasons the Tiger has
stepped into the limelight during
past two or three months are many,
chief of which, however, is the
comparative ease with which the
ore bodies have been encountered
underground,', their richness, and
added to these the fact that operations arc in charge of capable men
and that the company mean business
and have the money available to
place the Tiger on the ore shipping
list within a short time.
Outside construction work and
also underground operations are
being pushed with all possible
rapidity. Excavation is now in
progress for the new camp, next
week lumber will be moving over
the railway and construction work
will be commenced.
The new camp will comprise a
bunkhouse and dining room, giving
accommodation for 20 men, a
blacksmith shop, assay office, and
general office. It will be built on
the main trail from the Toric to the
Wolf, and it is expected that the
main working tunnel will be on
about the same level as the camp.
Orders for lumber for all construction purposes have been let
locally to Al. Falconer, and cutting
is now well advanced.
The new tunnel, which was commenced a short time ago, after ore
had been encountered in the 240
foot level tunnel, has been driven
a distance of over 80   feet.     This
tunnel will encounter the ore at a
depth of 400 feet. When this has
been done a main tunnel will be
driven, and while this work is in
progress the blocking out of the
ore on the three upper levels will
be undertaken.
This work will consist of drifting
on the ore bodies and driving
raises from one level to the other.
That a big tonnage of ore will
undoubtedly be developed is shown
by the fact that the ore was encountered in the 240 ft. level tunnel
at a point 300 feet south of where
the 140 foot tunnel hit it.
In regard to the installation of
the compressor plant, definite word
has been received from Vancouver
that the plant will be shipped from
there on October 5th. and will be
installed immediately upon Mts
arrival here.
It is the opinion of everyone
visiting the mine that the Tiger
is rapidly developing into a big
tonnage producer, and that the
agressive manner in which the
Utility Co. are conducting operations will shortly produce startling
results.
From all available sources of
information it is learned that the
Utility Mining & Financing Co. are
in a strong financial position, and
include on their directorate a number of very influential men, who
are as follows: F. L. McDonald,
president; Wm. M. Brewer, vice-
president; E. H. Martin, managing
director. Directors of the company
are, W. J. Renix, C. O. Wicken-
den, G. A. de Haseth, W. J. L.
King, secretary.

Esperanza Co. Decides to
Enlarge Their Operations
An expansion of mining operations at the Esperanza Mine will
be instituted at once, and the mine
operated on a larger scale this coming winter than at any other time
in its history.
This decision was arrived at on
Wednesday evening at a meeting of
the directors held at the mine.
Those present were: Thomas Mc-
Meekin, president, N. Fraser, D.
B. MacDougall, E. H. Mortimer.
A considerable amount of business was disposed of and among
other things decided upon was the
purchase of a 42 h.p. Deisel engine
which will be used for developing
power for a new compressor plant.
The engine and compressor plant
have already been ordered. The
compressor will operate two drills
and will be put into operation this
fall.
This decision was arrived at after
the visiting directors had made a
thorough examination of the mine,
and they were very much impressed
with the amount of ore developed
in the different drifts.
The new tunnel, which was commenced recently at a lower elevation
than any of the present workings,
has been driven a distance of 70 ft.,
and it is expected to encounter the
ore at any time. This tunnel gives
a much greater depth on the ore.
If this tunnel is successful, the
company will be satisfied that sufficient quantities of ore exist to warrant the driving of a new tunnel at
a much lower elevation. This tunnel will be driven at a lower
elevation of about 400 ft.
' There is a persistent demand for
Esperanza stock, especially throughout the southern interior, and an
active stock selling campaign will
be instituted during the coming
winter.
An aerial tramway and a concentrating mill, will possibly be installed at some future time, but no
arrangements have been made yet.
The Esperanza is the most persistent shipper in the north, except
for the Hidden Creek and Premier
mines, and ore shipments will be
considerably enlarged now that
machinery is being installed.

The Anyox branch of the Imperial Order Daughters of the
Empire are a live organization.
When this branch was formed
about two years ago many people
were skeptical as to its success,
and questioned the wisdom of
forming an additional organization
when it was felt that too many already existed. The ladies of the
I. O. D. E. however, have shown
that there was ample room in
Anyox for such an organization,
and since it has been functioning
it has resulted in doing a lot of
good work, without working a
hardship on anyone. For September 28th. and 29th. they have
purchased the picture shows at
the Mine and Beach. The
money taken at the doors will be
used to brighten the lives of little
crippled children of the province,
who are inmates of various institutions. Fifty cents is the price of
admission, and what is 50 cents
where a crippled child is concerned.
During recent months publicity
regarding an outlet on the coast
for the Peace River country has
not been very active. The issue
however, is not dead, for occasionally a newspaper or magazine
publishes an article showing that
the big railway companies are still
interested, and that unquestionably
the road will be built, and that it
will not be many years before the
Peace River grain is pouring to
the coast. Where the outlet will
be has not yet even been hinted at.
A great many believe that the
terminus will be at Stewart, which
is not altogether unlikely.
Following is a portion of an editorial recently published in the
Calgary Herald, regarding a coast
outlet for the Peace River.
"The significance of a four-days'
tour through the Peace River
country by President Beatty of the
Canadian  Pacific   Railway,  and
ten directors of the company should
not be lost on the Alberta Government. They are all extremely
busy men, with huge financial
interests to occupy their attention.
It may be assumed that this group
of outstanding business men in the
Dominion are not devoting four
days to a mere holiday jaunt
through the northern section of this
province. Their trip has a serious
purpose in view and it requires no
prophet to forecast it concerns the
future relationship of the premier
transcontinental   railway     system
with the Peace  River area	
With the growth of traffic and
trade in the Peace River country
a western outlet appears inevitable.
The current season's grain crop is
estimated at 30,000,000 bushels.
This production will appear small
in comparison with the yield in the
near future and other traffic will
expand in proportion. A direct
haul to the Pacific has been discussed for several years. It may
be that the C. P. R. directors, in
their visit to the North will consider this angle of Peace River
transportation to the exclusion of
any alternative plan.
If and when such a direct outlet
is provided for the northern settlers
the value of the Provincial Government's northern lines will be
greatly impaired. It is a situation
which should cause some anxious
thought in inner administration
circles in Edmonton these sunny
days."
Consolidated Co.  Will
Enlarge Kimberley Mill
Latest development in the con
binning expansion of the plant and
operations of the Consolidated
Mining and Smelting Company of
Canada is a 50 per cent, enlargement of the Kimberly concentrator
which last year was brought up
from a capacity of 3000 tons a day
to 4000 tons. This is now to be enlarged to 6000 tons daily. This new
capacity for which authorization
has just been made, is expected to
be available before the end of 1929.
The Kimberley concentrator
treats the ore of the Sullivan mine
whose production, of course, will
be stepped up correspondingly
when the new milling capacity is
available.

Don Cameron, Former
Resident, Makes
Bold Trip
Don Cameron, who was a prospector and miner of Alice Arm,
Anyox, and Stewart, and later,
after selling the Wolf mine to the
Dolly Varden Mining Company
for $50,000, was a mine
operator, is at present in the Hudson Bay country, up in the barren
lands. A vivid report of his exploits and hardships was recently
published in the Northern Miner of
Cobalt, and those who knew Don
in this district a few years ago will
be pleased to learn that his six feet
two inches of brawn and muscle
are as tough as ever.
From a lengthy report published
in the Northern Miner it appears
that Cameron headed a party of
men for the Nipissing Mining Co.
to explore a portion of the barren
lands adjacent to the Hudson Bay.
Other parties were also in the field
but Cameron beat them all by about
four weeks.
Following is a portion of the
Northern Miner's report of the
hazardous trip:
"While Wilson and his men were
toiling on their long journey across
the Northern Hinterland, the crew
under Don Cameron were fighting
their way from the Hudson Bay
Railway's present end of steel.
They struggled against ice in the
Nelson River, trying to get to Port
Nelson and tidewater, where they
could either get a gas boat or use
their extra large canoes and outboard motors. In early June they
found the lower reaches of the Nelson choked with ice. They were
also informed that two other canoe
loads were awaiting for the ice to
go out. They turned back and
headed across country northward
for the Churchill river, which usually goes out ahead of the Nelson.
Where they could find open water
to use their canoes they launched
them. Where there was no water
they dragged them on the ground.
Here start the Barren Lands. For
nearly two hundred miles they
worked their way, at last reaching
Fort Churchill where the ice was
just leaving. They hired a gasboat
which had intended going south to
Port Nelson, and it conveyed them
and their equipment to Cape Eskimo, 200 miles up the coast, where
there is a Hudson Bay Post, They
received a hearty reception, for the
few inhabitants had been out of
touch with the world for seven or
eight months. 'They treated us
wonderfully well,' wrote Cameron,
but they kept us up all night talking.'
"FromCape Eskimo they travelled
the remaining hundred odd miles to
Ranken Inlet, by their power
canoes, passing the low, forbidding
shores, where land can only be
reached at high tide, without reported incident. They arrived
about July 5th., a good month
ahead of the Lindsay boat expedition, and six weeks ahead of the
N. A. M. E. party."
There is as much difference between an EIDoro cigar and the
other kind, as there in between a
silk shirt and a gunny sack.

Prairie Has Record Wheat
Crop Says Authority
"I would not like to be called a
prophet but I think the common
estimate of 500,000.000 bushels is
conservative," declared Dr. Joseph
H. Grisdale, deputy minister of
agriculture, in commenting on the
prospects of the western wheat
crop, following a trip to the
prairies.
Dr. Grisdale forcasts the establishment of an experimental farm
in the Peace River near Grand
Prairie where, he says, "the crop
is of the finest.''
