Important Strikeof
High Grade on
Silver Cord
The Kitsault-Eagle Silver Mines'
development work on the Silver
Cord group on the Northeast Fork,
under the direction of A. McGuire,
is showing most encouraging results
A new strike of high grade silver-
lead-zinc ore was made this week
on the big quartz vein which has
been traced for 2000 feet on its
strike. Samples displayed in
Bruggy's Store window show massive zinc blend well mixed with galena. The assay value of this ore
has not yet been determined but
similar appearing ore encountered
in No. 1 level assays 258.8 ozs.
silver to the ton. The new find is
a continuation of this high grade
ore and has been exposed on the
surface in many places for a length
of 2000 feet. The exposure from
which the samples in Bruggy's
Store were taken shows ten feet of
ore, two feet on the footwall side
being almost solid galena-zinc while
the balance is good milling ore.
Development will be continued on
these surface showings as well as
driving a No. 2 level. This level
has as its objective a big surface
showing 60 feet wide and will be
driven 500 feet, having already advanced 50 feet.
Work on the company's LeRoy
group, also situated on the Northeast Fork, during the past month
has opened up a vein 200 feet below
the showings developed last season.
Open cuts and stripping has exposed
this vein for 200 feet on its strike
and proves it to be three feet wide
of almost solid ore giving values in
gold, silver, lead and zinc up to
$60.00 a ton. This vein is shown
to be intersected by a cross vein six
feet wide which has been traced for
over 700 feet and samples of this
have been sent south for assay purposes.
The Provincial Mines Department
have constructed an excellent trail
up the Northeast Fork, and this is
greatly facilitating the development
work on the Silver Cord and LeRoy
as well as many other properties.
At the Eagle group on the main
Kitsault river, the Kitsault Eagle
Silver Mines No. 1 crosscut tunnel
has advanced 125 feet and it is expected to encounter the big vein in
another 60 feet.
G. W. McMorris President of the
company, with Mr. McGuire, has
spent the last two weeks making an
inspection of the company's properties, and informs The Herald that it
is probable that three shifts will be
maintained on both the Eagle and
Silver Cord groups this winter, as
a result of the splendid showings
discovered the past month.

evidenced by the donation of a set
of Dent's History books to the
Alioe Arm School aud to the Kincolith School and the Illustrated
London News to the Anyox Schools.
During the coming season it is the
intention of this Chapter to assist
witn educational matters in Anyox.
Also it may be mentioned that
these good ladies have done some
excellent work in regard to ex-service men's affairs, not only by their
kindly thoughts of those in hospital who were the recipients from
time to time of flowers but also' of
their splendid oo-operation and unwearying help at functions where
"the boys" are "putting on a stunt"
The I. O. D. E. is an organization
of which all patriotic ladies should
be proud of being a member; so
those of the ladies who have not
yet joined, now is the time. The

G. W. Morley Passes
Peacefully Away
The death occurred on Wednesday night or Thursday morning of
Gideon W. Morley of Silver City.
He was found in bed on Thursday
morning having passed peacefully
away during the night.
Deceased was 76 years of age,
and had been a resident of Silver
City for the past 14 years. He
followed the occupation of prospector, and was heavily interested in
mineral claims on McGrath mountain.
He was a native of the United
States and has followed mining in
every western state, including the
big booms of Colorado and Nevada.
He leaves to mourn his loss three
married daughters, two of whom
reside in Seattle, and one in Kansas
City; also a sister of Portland,
The body was taken to Anyox on
Friday, and will be held there until
his daughters have been communicated with regarding its disposition.
The late Mr. Morley was of the
old type of prospectors that is rapidly passing away. He was held in
great esteem by the whole community. Despite his advanced age he
was actively engaged in developing
his claims almost up to the time of
his death. He was one of the
camp's optimists and had great
faith in the possibilities of the
district, and it is to be deplored
that he did not live to see his hopes
If no word is received regarding
the disposition of the body, the
funeral will be held in Anyox on

K. MOSS, Editor and Publisher.
The first advertisement ever to
appear in a periodical is said to
have been published in London in
1695. If advertising did not pay
and had not been of value that
first ad. might have been the last.
It was in the nature of a want ad.,
or classified ad., asking for a reliable ship's clerk.
No doubt the ad. was answered
and that the shipmaster got whom
he wanted, Since then the growth
of advertising has been marvellous.
It has made possible the enormous
sales due to make production. In
fact it has been a contributing force
in making mass production possible
and consequent low prices a reality.
Since 1695—a mere matter of
232 years—commerce on land and
sea has flourished more than in
any three centuries previous. Advertising can not and does not
claim all of the credit for this, but
it has been a mighty factor in opening the door to world-wide opportunity. It has stimulated local
business which has made up the
vital units in national growth and
stability. It has made possible
from a financial standpoint the
great press of the world, thus extending knowledge and strengthening human relationship as no other
institution of communication ever
has done or ever can do.
First Quartz Mining Was
At Queen Charlotte
Tlie first lode discovery was
made by Indians and the location
was at Gold or Mitchell Harbor,
Queen Clmrolotte Islands. The
vein was small but exceedingly
rich. For a width of 7 in. and a
length of 80 ft. it was 25% gold.
The Hudson's Bay Company despatched miners to the scene to
work the deposit on a co- operative
basis, but had the misfortune to
wreck the ship. With characteristic British enterprise they bought
the U. S. Brigantine Orbit, then
on the rooks at Esquinialt, floated
and repaired it, named it the Recovery, hoisted the British flag
and loaded it with gold-quartz,
which was shipped to England.
The shipment realized $5,400, their
share of which gave the miners $30
a month.
News of the strike reaching San-
Francisco, a "rush" set in and the
British Admiralty despatched the
warship, "Thetis" from Valparaiso
to maintain law and order. The
Haida Indians became hostile and
seized an American ship, Capt.
Rooney's "Susan Sturgess," and
held the crew prisoners till rescued
by the Hudson's Bay Company
steamer, the. "Beaver."
Granby Co.   Blew in
Smelter in 1901
A writer in a current magazine
observes "If the newspaper is just a
little better than its town the latter
is the gainer thereby."
Towns and their newspapers
usually lag or lead together. Progressive journalism is the unfailing
tonic of the lethargic community,
but it is equally true that a lifeless
newspaper can seriously retard the
development of its community.
There is no better community
asset than a home newspaper equal
to the needs of the community.
While a poor newspaper is better
than none to the individual
reader, that does not hold true for
the town.
What can a good newspaper do
for its community? It can serve as
the town's messenger to the outside
world. It must take the leadership in all community projects if
they are to be successful.   It is the
The Granby Co. blew in its first
smelter at Grand Forks in 1901.
This plant, started with a capacity
of 300 tons a day, was subsequently
increased to 4000 tons a day. In
the same year the B. C. Copper Co.
built a smelter at Greenwood of a
capacity of 500 tons a day. This
smelter was subsequently enlarged
to treat 2,500 tons a day. In 1902
the Montreal and Boston Copper
Co. built a smelter at Boundary
Falls. The initial capacity was
300 tons per day and it was subsequently enlarged to 900 tons.

Copper represents the greatest
value in the metal mining industry
of British Columbia. For many
years this province has been the
largest producer of copper in
Canada, From an initial output
of $16,234, in 1894, the industry
has grown to an output of 89,339,-
768 lbs., valued at $12,324,421 for
1926 aud has made a total production of 1,280,951,781 lbs., valued at  $209,967,068.
Practically all the copper is at
present coming from the operation
of two companies, Granby Consolidated Mining, Smelting and Power
Co:, Ltd., and Britannia Mining
and Smelting Co. The Granby
Company operates two large mines

Modern." It shows the "Sampson," first locomotive ln America vrhlch was first used at Albion mines
ln 1839, and one ot the new Pacific type locomotives
which have been placed ln commission by the Canadian
Pacific Railway on all main lines, and which are chiefly
responsible tor this company's "on time" feature of
service. The Canadian Pacific Railway have now
definitely adopted this design for their heavy main line
service, as representing the most desirable and efficient locomotive for economy and reliability of service,
as this particular design reduces to a minimum, consistent with capacity, the number of moving parts
which Is essential for reliability of service under the
most exacting and severe conditions.
The capacity and weight of these locomotives rank
them among the biggest of their type ln the world, and
tbe largest of this design ln operation ln Canada. The
haulage edrmcltj; of the 2300 series Is 42,600 lbs., which
Is obtained with 200 pounds boiler pressure, cylinders
25 Inches ln diameter, 30 inch stroke and with driving
wheels 75 inches in diameter. The weight on the three
pairs of drivers of engine Is 180,000 pounds and the
total weight of the engine and tender in working condition is 495,000 pounds, the tender having a capacity of
8,000 gallons of water and 14 tons of coal.
The design of these locomotives was given very
careful study, a trial order of engines constructed ln
1919 having been made, with tests under all Canadian
conditions, which fully Justified all expectations for
reliability and economy of operation. The boiler has
been carefully proportioned and the inter-relation of
grate area, fire box volume, heat absorption capacity
of different lengths of tube and gas areas more carefully thought out than is usual In moat designs, whieh,
coupled together with an extremely accurate distribution of steam by an Improved type of Walsehaert valv-
gear, has given exceptional economy for a locomotive
of this site. ALICE   ARM   AND   ANYOX   HERALD,   Saturday.    September   10 1927
