Toric Co. Shareholders
Ratify Option With
k   Britannia Co.
The meeting of the shareholders
of the Toric Mines Co. Ltd. held in
Vancouver on April 11th. ratified
the offer of the Britannia Mining
& Smelting Co. who were seeking
an option ou the mine. It is understood that all agreements between
the two companies are signed, and
that future operations will be conducted by the Britannia Co.
The price and terms of tlie
option wore published in last week's
issue of the Herald. No word has
been received locally regarding the
date of resumption of operations at
the Toric. At the present time
much inconvenience would be
caused in endeavoring to freight in
supplies owing to soft snow conditions on the upper end of the railway - It is probable that no start
will be made until the railway
track is clear of snow to the end of

The speaker charmed his audience
with an intimate description of
'.^'ild life among the Indians of
this coast. He added an interesting explanation of the origin of
local plaoe names. Mrs. Pinckney
was heard in two vocal solos unaccompanied. The audience of
more than fifty then repaired to
the basement for refreshments.

Badminton Club Finals
Played^ Off
The Badminton Club was out in
force on Tuesday evening to witness the finals in the Men's and

in the ladies' event was Mrs. J.
Smith, who triumphed in straight
sets over Mrs. J. A. D. Stewart.

pair playing all others, total scores
deciding winners. Brett and Stevens in a last minute victory over
Bartman and Cloke captured the

once but a jinx came to their rescue.
Mrs. Smith played steadily
Government Telegraph
Line Being Greatly
The Dominion Government telegraph line between Anyox and Alice
Arm is being brought up-to-date.
At the present time, four miles of
cedar poles are being put in from
the Alice Arm wharf along the
wharf road to the foot of the mountain on the east of the Kitsault flats.
Four miles of copper wire is also
being strung on the Alice Arm end,
and following this, copper wire will
be installed from Anyox to the cable,
a distance of about seven miles.
The intervening space will also be
supplied with copper wire during
the summer. The Granby Consolidated Mining Smelting & Power
Co. Ltd, have donated ten miles of
copper wire for the work.
It was found that the smelter
fumes of Anyox were the cause of
rapid deterioration of galvanized
wire, and the cost of replacing at frequent intervals was burdensome.
A large portion of the timber
along the right-of-way of the line
between Anyox and Alice Arm has
been fallen during the past two
years, and this work will probably
be completed this summer.
The completion of this work and
the installation of copper wire will
provide a first-class line between
the two towns. One that will need
a minimum of repair work due to
breakages, thus supplying excellent
service that will be appreciated.
Mr. and Mrs. Richard Breden-
bnrg wish to express their sincerest
thanks to their friends and es
pecially to the ladies of the Rebek-
ah Lodge for the sympathy shown
in their recent bereavement.
Following the resignation of
Principal Campbell of the High
School, Mr. Fordyce Clark, formerly assistant principal, has been
appointed headmaster. The new
member of the staff is Mr. Arthur

Public Works Dept. Is
Repairing Alice Arm
The Dolly Varden railway has
been put in a state of repair from
the wharf to mile 7 by the Public
Works Department. Rock slides
and fallen timber accumulated during tlie winter have been removed.
Washouts repaired, and the track
was also repaired and guard rails
installed on several sharp curves.
The road is in a first-class state as
far as mile 7.
Repair work was suspended at
this point on account of snow difficulties, but will be resumed as soon
is possible. The snow on the upper
end of the road is slow in melting
on account of freighting during the
winter, which converted into almost solid ine.
Work was commenced yesterday
morning on the surfacing of the
wharf road. The entire road from
the wharf to the end of the Kitsault
Hats will be repaired. Improvement of this road will be of great
assistance to freight teams hauling
supplies to McGrath mountain
mining operations this summer.
J. A. Anderson, superintendent
of Public Works is a visitor in
town this week. He stated to the
Herald that iu addition to repairing of the Dolly Varden railway to
end of steel and surfacing the
Wharf Road that the wagon road
from the end of steel would be extended to Tiger Creek, which lies
north of the Tiger property.
No plans at present had been
made in regard to the strengthening of the wing dam above the

It is probable that within a few
years Canada will lead the countries of the world in mineral production. Carefully prepared statistics show that at the present time
over $700,000,000 is invested in
Canada's operating mineral enterprises. And a commencement has
only been made in the developing
of our vast mineral resources.
Year after year railways are being
built into new mining areas, for
without transportation the richest
ore deposits are not worth a dime.
Every mining district in British
Columbia is sharing in the wave of
mining prosperity that is sweeping
the Dominion. It is estimated that
last year the combined profits of
British Columbia's mining companies reached a total of $11,500,-
000. These profits should show
a considerable increase this year,
as new mines will be producing
and the price of the chief metals
promises to maintain a much higher average.
The exploitation of the mineral
wealth of the northern portion of
British Columbia by the big operating companies has not been as
rapid as it should have been. Especially when it is considered that
the Granby Co. and Premier Co.—
two of the most successful mining
companies of the province—have
been in operation for a number of
years. But the north is surely
coming into its own. The Consolidated Co. are developing properties in the Stewart district and
the Britannia Co. will shortly follow
suit in the Alice Arm district.
Success of these enterprises means
success for the whole north coast.
Expects Copper To Stay
Around 20 Cents
MONTREAL—The prevailing
high prices for copper which so directly affect companies like International Nickel and Noranda, is a
topic of much discussion wherever
mining men meet. L. V. Vogel-
stein, chairman of the American
Metal Company, believes producers
will be able to hold the price of
oopper around 20 cents a pound,
but does not expect to see prices
go materially higher if consumers
keep their heads. He points out
that International Nickel will increase its copper output this year
by about 40,000,000 lbs. Noranda
will likely increase its output.
Canadian and African mines will
both be needed to meet the pros-,
pective increase in the consumption
of copper by the time the increased
schedules in both countries aie
Pattullo Will Educate The
Masses on Liberalism
"The Liberal party has to educate
those of independent thought and
make them realize that the Liberals
are advocating measures in the interests of the people of the. country
as a whole," said T. D. Pattullo,
opposition leader, in sounding a
note favoring an aggressive movement on the part of the Liberals
along the line of regaining power,
at the Laurier Club Banquet recently at Victoria.
Dr. McKechnie, of the staff of
Consolidated Mining and Smelting
Co., is reporting on the mineral
prospects of the Phillipine Islands
for his company.
It is reported that 50 Smithers
folk were pinched on April I st.
because they forgot to carry their
driver's license. But who could
blame them when one considers
the financial and mental strain at
tached to an auto.
The victims have to pay manufacturer's and retailer's profits,
freights, and import tariff tax, plus:
road taxes, gas taxes, sales taxes,
license plates, transfer and registration taxes, driver's license, personal
property tax and now its a license
for being broke.    Oh, gosh!
Also one is called upon for land
tax, school tax, dog tax, match tax,
cheque stamps, income tax, real
property tax, taxes on what you
owe and what you do not owe,
radio license, tax on money orders,
tax on whisky, tax on tobacco.

Atlin  Produced   Over
$50,000 Placer Gold
The production of placer gold in
the Atlin District for 1928 was approximately $52,000.00. Although
this is a small production, compared
with earlier years, considering the
state of placer mining generally, it
is a very creditable showing for the
district, as it represents more than
half the placer production of the
en^ke Province for the year.
Individual miners were solely responsible for this output, as all the
larger operators were engaged in
development work during the past
Arrangements   Made For
Canadian Refinery
Arrangements have been completed whereby International Nickel,
together with Consolidated Mining

possibly other interests, will build a
copper refinery at Copper Cliff, Ontario, with an initial capacity for
refining 120,000 tons of copper annually. Construction will be started
at once and the new refinery will be
completed and operating in about
eighteen months. It will employ
600 men and will cost approximately
$4,000,000.. About 6,000 hp. of
electrical energy will be utilized.

, Four New Canadians from Hnwrary whose native dances delighted thousands ia
attendance at the Regina Festival
P rom whatever viewpoint it is to
r be judged, the Great West Canadian Festival recently brought to
a conclusion at Regina, was a success. In attendance it eclipsed its
forerunner at Winnipeg last year.
Its *handicraf t exhibit covered a
wider range, a more comprehensive
representation of the peoples of the
West had been arranged for and,
in the words of J. M. Gibbon, sponsor of the festival, "Saskatchewan
has proved that within its borders
is the foundation of an art upon
which will be built a structure of
national culture finer than that of
any other nation on earth." Over a
hundred folk-dancers interpreted
the dances of many racial groups.
Folk-singers numbered over one-
hundred and sixty. Handicrafts
struck response from thousands
and it is safe to say that next
years festival, which is already being planned, will receive still great,
er'support and present a folk-
pageant to be unequalled on the
continent. The festivals have been
arranged under the auspices of
the Canadian Pacific Railway.
