Two Feet of Ore Found
Underground on
WoM
Will Put Property in Steady
Shipping Class
High grade silver ore was encountered underground on the Wolf
property near Palls Creek on Sunday last, hy J. Fiva and associates
who have a bond on the property.
The ore vein is ahout two feet
wide, and is impregnated with native, brittle and ruby silver. The
vein dips into the hill at an angle
of about 25 degrees, and is one of,
the strongest and best defined veins
ever found in tbe district. The
banging wall section of the vein
was first encountered, at a distance
of 110 feet from the portal of the
tunnel, and the stuping ground to
the surface is 70 feet. The vein
has been traced for a distance of
600 feet on the surface, and it can
readily be seen that a large tonnage of ore is now available for
miuing.
As soon as the tunnel has been
extended to the footwall, a drift
will be driven on the ore to the
north, and stoping of ore will commence. A drift will later be driven
on the south also.
The Wolf, which is within three
minutes' walk of Alice Ann was
bonded last fall by J. Fiva and
associates from J. Stark, after they
had prospected the ground and
found an interesting surface showing of ore caused by the uprooting
of a tree.
They stripped this showing and
incidentally took off 16 tons of ore
which realized $100.00 per ton in
silver and gold.
A tunnel was then commenced
in order to encounter the ore at
depth. Work on the tunnel has
been pushed with great rapidity
during the past few months, and
the longed-for contact with the ore
occurred last Saturday.
Dogged perseverance, plus hard
work and good judgement has again
won out, and another shipping mine
has been added to Alice Arm's
growing list.
Shipping mines are what makes
la mining oamp, and from present
J tppearances Alice Arm will shortly
Ihave a flock of them.
I The Wolf has been brought to a
shipping stage without the aid of
jutside capital, and is another
proof of the ease with whioh ore
:an be located in this rich mineral
llistriot.
j A large blacksmith shop aud ore
.hed, also a short tramline was
onstructed last fall, and everything
? in readiness for the mining and
hipping of ore in considerable
iiiantities.
[New Yorker Visits Camp
Although the season is yet early
lie tide of mining engineers iscom-
lencing to flow into Alice Arm.
>n Monday, Paul F. Brown, mining
igineer of New York city arrived
om the south. He found that he

A Canadian Spirit and
Conscience Lacking
Says McRaye
The spirit which enabled the
early pioneers of this vast country
to overcome what were apparently
insurmountable obstacles, the indomitable courage and tenacity of
spirit of the Canadian troops in
the late war and the spirit of do"-'
operation amongst themselves. The
lack of an appreciation of Canada
by those living here, and the need
for unity, coupled with an appeal
for more instructive teaching of
Canadian history, were discussed
by Walter McRaye in the Recreation Hall on Wednesday March
7th.
The great need of the people of
Canada today, declared Mr. McRaye is a Canadian conscience.
Proceeding the speaker referred
to the spirit of the Canadian forces
at Ypres, and said that over there
the men going over the top to
make an attack did not look to see
if the man next to them were from
tire West or from the East. They
saw Canada on his shoulder, that
was enough. This unity of spirit
was an exemplication which we as
the people of a vast dominion
should strive to uphold for the
common good of our country and
all its enterprises.
The past history of Canada is
worthy of study by all who are
living in the Dominion today.
It will enlighten us as to the
struggles of the early pioneers; the
Indian Wars; the story of the
Hudson Bay Co; the laying of the
C. P. R. tracks. All these said the
speaker are epics of which any
country might be proud, and yet
how much of them are taught in
our schools today?
The history of Canada he continued, is founded on the success of
earnest endeavour. In i ts pages one
sees optimism at its best, yet we
Canadians are not enthusiastic.
Why? because we have never been
taught about our wonderful history
Our American neighbors across the
border take good care that the history of theirown country is instilled
in the young mind and what is the
outcome? A Nation of Boosters
for theirown country, and all its
products.
The trouble is that we have no
national conscience; our outlook is
provincial or local. We cannot
rise to a national aspeot. The government is seeking to change this,
but before it can educate the nation
it must educate itself, declared Mr.
McRaye.
It is hard to realize, but nevertheless unfortunately true that no
ohild bom in Canada today is a
Canadian. The very birth certificate robs it of its birthright. Ou
this certificate it is clearly stated
as that of the parents, because
there is no Canadian nationality,
that term merely denotes citizenship.
Mr. McRaye emphasized the fact
and was proud to say he was 100%
Canadian and I take off my hat to
i     Al

Sulphide Ores are Still
Burning in Arizona
Copper Field
United Verde Copper advanced
another step toward the completion
of its stripping programme recently
when 100,000 ll>. of geletin dynamite was set*off in one blast. The
dynamite was loaded in two tunnels
the faces of which were 50 and 100
ft in from the face of a 175 ft. cliff.
It is estimated that the blast loosened and made available for removal by steam shovel 150,000 cu. yd.
of rook.
The overburden which is being
moved overlies the ore body to a
depth of 300 ft. Steam-shovel operations have been in progress for
five years, and though designed
primarily to uncover the fire zone
of the mine, have proven profitable,
owing to the uncovering of considerable amounts of valuable ore
Other attempts to extinguish the
fire which has existed in parts of
the sulphide ores for a number of
years have been unsuccessful. The
two tunnels in whioh the recent
blast was set off were so close to
the fire zone that the temperature
in the firing chambers wasl20deg.

Trail Smelter to Give Freight
Reduction on Northern
Ores
Consolidated M. &. S. company
has invaded the northern field for
the purchase of ores. Rail shipment from Vancouver has been
granted a rate of $5.50 per ton, but
mining companies must arrange
their own rates to Vancouver from
Prinoe Rupert and northern points.
Prince George Trapper Killed
by Grizzly Bear
Tom Geany a trapper on the
north fork of the McGregor river,
was killed last week by a huge
grizzly bear, which be surprised in
the act of devouring the carcass of a
goose killed by Geany previously.
Jack Yarzeau, the dead trappers'
partner, discovered the body with
face and top of the bead torn off
and an axe. the only weapon the
man had, still gripped firmly in
his hand.
Canada has the largest forest resources in the British Empire.
Summary B. C. Mining
Given by J. D. Galloway
John D. Galloway, Provincial
Mineralogist frankly attributes the
great increase in the values of the
mineral production of British Columbia during recent years partly
to publicity. Addressing the local
branch of the Engineers' Institute
of Canada at Victoria, on February
17th, Mr. Galloway gave some
interesting figures. He stated
that the value of the mineral production of British Columbia for
1925 was $61500,000, of which
$47,000,000 was in metals, $11,500-
000 in coal and coke, and the
remainder in building materials
and non-metallics. Of the lode
production 72 per cent was treated
in the province, 13 per cent was
partly treated in the province, and
15 per cent was shipped to foreign
countries in the crude state.
There are 15,000 men employed
iu the industry, representing an
annual payroll of $25,000,000.
Profits derived from the industry
are hard to arrive at, Mr. Galloway
averred. Dividends do not tell the
whole tale: reserves set aside and
taxes paid to governments must be
added to the dividends. During
last year 10 per cent of the value'
of the gross production was paid in
dividends. The total sum invested
in the industry in the province is
$150,000,000. In 1924, the last
year for which the information is
available, the per-eapita value of
the mineral production for the
whole of Canada was $24; that of
British Columbia was $93;Ontario,
$29; and Quebec, $10.
Prospectors Too Anxious to
Get Underground
Mr. Douglas Lay, resident mining engineer for the North-eastern
mining district in a recent address
given at Smithers said that:
"In developing mining properties,
prospectors were in too big a hurry
to get under ground, which he considered a great mistake. With
very few exceptions the surface
strength would be found to be an
accurate indication of what would
be found at depth. This being so
It was important for prospectors to
thoroughly prospect the surface and
by all means to stick to his ore. It
was much better to sink on the ore
than to attempt long cross-cuts,
but where physical conditions were
right it was of course better to drift
on the ore and in this way avoid
the expense and disappointment of
throwing up the property because
a fault had come in to change the
dip of the vein."

Annual Report Premier
Mining Co. Shows Big
Production
The annual report of the Premier
Gold Mining Co. has now been published for the year ending December 31st. 1925, and following are
various interesting items taken
therefrom:
"A new orebody of probably only
. moderate importance as to tonnage
and value was found towards the
end of the year by some flat diamond drill holes, running south-east
from the main orebody upon No. 1
level. This new orebody runs
approximately parallel with the
main ore zone for 200 feet therefrom
It has been drifted upon for 200
feat or more with an average gold-
silver value of about $14 for a six
foot width. Drifting is being continued and the persistence of this
ore at depth will be investigated by
drill holes from the second and
third levels. No tonnage from this
new orebody has been included in
the ore estimates of the December
31st. 1925, as it is not as yet sufficiently developed."
"Balance sheet as of December
31st. 1925, and Profit and loss
statement for the year 1925 are embodied in this report. The total
earnings for 1925 before deducting
administration expense, taxes, depreciation and ore depletion, were
$2,013,481.60, or $708,124.31 less
than in the year 1924. This decrease is due to the gradual
exhaustion of the high grade ore so
characteristic of the earlier production years of the property and the
consequent lower average grade of
the ores mined. It was in view of
this situation that the doubling of
the milling capacity for low grade
ores was undertaken last year, the
benefits of which will begin to appear upon the completion in March
of the new mill unit;
It will be observed that as deduction from total earnings, taxes for
1922   are $405,848.48,   compared
with   $188,932.35 in  1924,   even
though the earninings in 1925 were
i.   This is due to a  new  ruling
I made last   year   by   the   Finance
[Minister of British Columbia with
■respect to permissible deductions
[from earnings, for ore depletion, in

Iformity with  which  ruling, your
■company was required   to pay to
Ithe Provincial Government of British     Columbia    $213,990.99     as
[additional taxes for preceding years.
(At the same time the Finance Minister reduced the Provincial tax from
■10 per cent, to 8 per cent, upon net
earnings.    Even with this reduction  to 8 per cent,  however, the
■act remains that metal mining operations in British Columbia, taking

not be supported by British Columbia.

to be hoped therefore that a further
reduction in the Provincial tax rate
will shortly be made.

amount of underground work done
during 1925 and the quantity of

Diamond drilling, 13,500 feet.
Development drifts aud raises,
5,684 feet.
Ore mined (dry tons) 168,557.
Ore milled (dry tons) 55,704.
Ounces of .gold produced, 119,725.
Ounces of silver produced, 2,559-

Ore broken in stopes, 243,511
tons averaging 0.04 ounces gold
and 14.7 ounoes silver. With gold
at $20 per ounce and silver at 60c.

Canadian Spirit & Conscience
Lacking Says McRaye
Continued from Page 1
have the most wonderful country
in the world and how do many of
its inhabitants regard it? Merely
as a glorified meal ticket, to be
worked until we have made enough
and then back to the country we
are proud to own.
Mr. McRaye also pointed out the
conditions which exist today in
connection with our raw products,
taking the paper industry. In
several of the pulp mills today, the
raw product is baled up and ship
ped to the United States to be
made into paper. The Sunday
Editions published in the United
States takes 2,000 acres of Canadian pulpwood, the Saturday Evening Post and the Ladies Home
Journal require for one issue, approximately 40 acres each to supply
the demand. A greater part of
the mineral wealth of the Dominion is sent to the U. S. A. to be
smelted and turned into the finished
product. The same with our lumber and fishing industries, which
we eventually buy back in the finished product, besides giving em
ployment to citizens of another
country, which should rightfully
be ours. When are the people of
Canada going to wake up and get
out of the rut and realize the possibilities of their own oountry and
be 100% boosters. Invest your
money in Canada in sound Canadian enterprises and buy only Canadian products. In conclusion the
speaker said. Get away from the
jazzy restless wave of today. It
behooves us to drop our sectional
difference and take a national view.
Let us change our motto of
"Canada for the Canadians" to the
"Canadians for Canada." This
accomplished and we will be building up the unity between North
and South between East and West
between the Dominion and the
Empire and we will be making
Canada worthy of her gallant sixty
thousand sons who laid down their
lives on the fields of France aud
Flanders.
