The memory of Scotland's
national hard Bobby Bums, was
oelebrated at Anyox, on Monday
by a splendid concert, held under
the auspices of the United Churoh.
The concert was held in the
Reoreation Hall, which was filled
almost to capacity, and the large
audience showed their appreciation of the efforts of the artists by
large rounds of applause and
repented demands for encores.
The entire entertainment was
characterized by the superior
achievements of the artists, who
individually and collectively were
responsible  for its great success.
All proved thoroughly conversant with the parts taken by
them, and the audience were treated to a musical and vocal entertainment, of a superior standard.
Scottish songs, etc. ocoupied the
programme which is given below.
Previous to the commencement
of the programme, Mr. J. Kirkwood, . who acted as Chairman,

Alice Arm Branch of B.
C. Chamber of Mines
Hold Meeting
The regular meeting of the Alice
Arm Branch of the B. C. Chamber
of Mines was held at the Pioneer
Hotel, on Tuesday evening, at 8
p.m. President G. W. Bruggy
presiding.
Sixteen members were present,
and considerable business was disposed of.
It was deoided to construct the
cabinet for the display of ores from
looal properties, in Geo. Bruggy's
old store building, and to have it
completed within thirty days.
Several other suggestions were
made by those present, which the
secretary, A. D. York promised
would be taken up, and acted
upon.
Mr. Ole Evindson was called upon
by the chairman to say a few
words relative to the Chamber of
Mines in Vancouver. Mr. Evindson
was one of the pioneers of Alice
Arm, aud has, during the past few
years resided at Vancouver. He
spoke at some length, and said
that in his opinion the forming of
the Alice Arm branch would be of
great benefit to the camp. He
reviewed the large amount of good
work being done by the Chamber
of Mines in Vanoouver, and said
that thousands of persons anually
visited the headquarters. Mining
men from all over the world went
there to seek information, and if
the people of Alice Ann desired
publicity on their mining resources they could obtain it through
the Chamber of Mines. He went
into details and explained how this
object could be achieved. He said
that in Mr. Fraser, geologist, and
Mr. H. Browning, secretary, the
Chamber of Mines had two zealous
workers. Mr. Browning especially
took a keen interest in the work,
and was an encyclopaedia of information regarding the mining
industry of the province. He had
great faith in the Alice Arm district, aud the speaker was quite
sure he would help to advertise its
possibilities whenever possible.
High Grade Silver
Ore Struck at
LaRose Mine
Discovery WiilBenef it Whole
District
BIRTH  AT   ANYOX
High grade silver ore was
encountered in the underground
workings at the LaRose mine dur-
the early part of the week. This
is the most sensational ore discovery made in the Alice Arm district
since the Toric ore .body was proven up, and it will .have a decided
stimulating effect on the mining
industry of the Alice Arm district.
The ore was encountered in a
raise that had been commenced,
from the recently driven tunnel.
The raise had only been driven a
short distance before ore was
broken into, and latest reports from
the mine are to the effect that the
ore is increasing iu value as the
raise is extended.
The width of the ore ledge has
not yet been determined, as it is
across the full widili of the raisei
whioh is about four feet. The
highest grade ore is found in a vein
about one foot wide. The remaining three feet, however, is good
ore, and should pay a handsome
profit.
The vertical depth of the ore
from -tha^b^b torn. r;£ihash.°-£ty which •]
has been siink on the surface, is
fully 130 feet, so that it can be
readily seen that a big tonnage is
already practically proven up.
The ore values are chiefly composed of native silver, grey copper,
and some galena, and specimens
brought down from the property
fully substantiate the richness of
the discovery.
The LaRose is one of the best
known mining properties iu the
Alice Arm district. This has been
due to the exceptional high grade
silver ore that the property was
know n to contain. Samples of th is
ore have obtained first prizes at all
mineral exhibitions when exhibited,
and it was well known that if this
ore could be found at a good depth
underground, that the LaRose
would develop into a mine of no
mean proportions.

Predominate at Hard
Times Dance
A very enjoyable evening was
spent in the Recreation Hall on
Friday January 22nd., the nature
of the event being a "Hard Time
Dance," under the auspices of the
Loyal Order of Moose. The Hall
bore a very hard appearance, whioh
was suitable to the oooasion. The
music was supplied by the Moose
Orchestra. There was a large percentage of the dancers present
whose dress bore the marks of
poverty in every detail and the
countenance of some of the dancers,
who aspired to be real hoboes for
the evening, gave one the impression that it took .several days to
cultivate those bristles around the

reveals the fact that the number
of births were more than double
the number of deaths, and that
marriages were nearly equal the
deaths.
Following are the figures for last
year: Marriages 11, Deaths 16,
Births 40.
These figures prove that Anyox
is not such an unhealthy town to
live in as many imagine. When it
is also taken into consideration that
over 1000 men are employed, and
the large percentage of them at
hazardous occupations, the figures
are even more startling. The small
death rate is undoubtedly due to
the efficient hospital maintained
and the excellent staff of skillful
conscientious doctors and nurses,
who spare no pains to mend the
broken bodies oaused by accidents,
or patiently nurse the sick back to
robust health.

Big immigration policies, for the
purpose of bringing large numbers
of settlers from Europe is again
engaging the attention of the Federal government and also several
provincial governments. The best
immigration policy that could be
formulated is one for the bringing
in of capital, to develop our natural resources, and erect manufacturing plants, to produce goods that
we are now forced to buy from
foreign countries. Just as soon as
there is a demand for workers
they will come to Canada of their
own accord. An immigrant who
pays his own way is a greater
asset to the country than one who
has to be assisted, and it means a
great saving of expenditure to the
country. "When the time arives
that there is a shortage of workers
in Canada it is soon enough to
talk of assisted passages. That
time has not yet arrived, and from
all appearances is still a long way
off. If there is any assisting to be
done, in order to get settlers on the
land, why not assist those already
. here instead of assisting the transportation companies, by bringing in
more immigrants that are, at the
present time not required.
The people of Canada are
taking a greater interest in the
mining industry at the present time
than they have ever previously
shown. Mining ranks third among
Canadian industries and is increasing by leaps and bounds. Every
mining district is feeling the effects
of this increased prosperity, and
those distrists who have a live
organization working for their
interests are the ones that are deriving the greatest benefits. Alice
Arm has an organization in the
local branch of the B. C. Chamber
of Mines and this branch will be
of considerable benefit to this dis
trict if it receives the proper
amount of support. All those
who wish to see an early develop
ment of the camp should give it
their support, for in doing so they
have everything to gain and nothing to lose.
Snow Motors Unsatisfactory
Observers of tests with a snow
motor used for hauling supplies for
the Wilkins' polar expedition expressed the opinion that the machines will never make their
destination, declaring them helpless on the ice and bare ground,
which they said would be encountered in the wind-swept reaches of
the Arctic.
The Alaska railroad Commission
reported a test made over a 58 mile
snow stretch. The steering gear
failed to guide the machine.
Anyox P. T. A. Has
Been of Real Benefit
to Community
Since its organization in 1920,
the Anyox P. T. A. have raised
and spent almost $1,000 for the
benefit of Anyox school children.
The following is a list of the expenditures.
' 1. Books for the school library'
$200.00.
2. Sports equipment for sweaters, basket balls, footballs etc.
$250.00.
3. High School reference books,
$25.00.
4. For half the cost of school
weighing machine, $25.00.
5. A picture machine or balap-
tican for the public sohool, $85.00.
6. Framed pictures for school
class rooms $80.00.
7. Refreshments for ohildren at
school concert, $18.00.
8. For our delegates' trip to the
P. T. A. Convention in Vanoouver,
$50.00.    '
9. For public lectures by principal Brady of the Prince Rupert
High School and others, $36.00.
10. The supply of bulbs to
school class rooms, $10.00.
11. Prizes for essays by school
ohildren $24.00.
12. For traps, tea etc. at P. T.
A. meetings, $20.00.
13. For four social evenings for
Parents and Teachers at the end
of the school year, $100.00
It is anticipated that the publication of the above expenditures
will prove interesting to the people
of Anyox, and greater achievements can be accomplished in the
future, by all getting behind this
association and helping whenever
possible.

Cassiar Didn't Prove an
Eldorado Last Year
Country Has Great Mining
Possibilities
About $7,500 in gold was produced, according to W. A. Johnson
of the Geogical Survey of Canada,
from placers on Gold pan creek,
Cassiar, British Columbia, during
the summer of 1925. It was on
Goldpan creek that the find was
made, in the autumn of 1924, that
led to the rush into this district in
the spring of 1925. This creek is a
tributary of little Eagle river, and
lies eleven miles iii a direct line due
east of the head of Dease lake.
All of the mining was done by
hand as in the seventies, when the
Cassiar dieti'ict was a scene of considerable activity. Nearly all the
gold was obtained on the lower
purt.of the creek from the discovery
claim, one thousand feet long, and
from claims No. 1, above and No.
2 below, each two hundred and
fifty feet long. The creek was
mined out for a length of Hve hundred and sixty five feet, the ground
averaging three to five feet in
depth. Some gold was found in
the upper parts of the creek, whioh
is nearly four miles long, and on
its tributaries, but apparently not
in sufficient quantities to pay for
working by hand methods.
Considerable prospecting was
done in other parts of the region
I and extended as far north as Frances lake, east to Muddy river and
in the west on the first north fork
of Clearwater river. One party of
prospectors used a hydroplane for
moving from one part of the region
to another, as well as for flying in
and Jut of the country. Late in
the autumn a discovery of placer
gold ou low benches in the canyon
I of the first north fork of Clearwater river, about twenty five
miles   above   the   mouth   of   the
I Clearwater,  was reported, and a
number of prospectors went into
the area.   No informatinn is avail-
i able as to the importance   to be
[ attached to the new discovery.

Into Seattle
"Since the Seattle assay office
was established July 15, 1898, it
has received in gold and silver, a
grand total of |295,485,987.10,
according to a report made this
week by T. C. Hatheway, assayer
in charge of the government institution. More than half of this
stupendous amount has come from
the Northland. During that time.
Nome has sent to the assay office
$71,892,552.58 in bullion and gold
dust. The Yukon country, during
this period, has sent to this office
gold and silver to the amount of
$92,238,874.63.
In 1925, the greatest shipments
were received from Southeastern
Alaska, their value being $2,039,-
992.00. Interior Alaska came next
with shipments valued at $1,033,-
609.50. British Columbia and the
Yukon country made shipments
aggregating $999,100.37, and
Nome shipped gold to the value of
$916,467.29.
"You'r a fine kid. you are,"
howled the boss at the new office
boy. "Here I've taught you everything I know and still you don't
know anything."
hydraulic pipe, and a Keystone
drill for mining and prospecting on
Dease, Thibert and McDame
creeks, on which most ofthe mining
was done in the early days, were
taken into the distriot last summer,
so that although the Cassiar placer
field is an old one, and has produced
very little gold in recent years, the
past summer has witnessed a
marked revival of interest in the
possibilities of the region.

Canada Mining Industry
Increasing
Mining, now third in rank among
Canada's primary industries contributes extensively to the wealth
and prosperity of the Dominion.
Large tonnages of freight move
from and to the mines; many subsidiary industries depend upon the
mining industy for their prosperity.
Canada's progress in the production
of mineral wealth has been notable,
particular in recent years, and the
developments in established fields,
the discovery of new mineral areas
and finally the surpassing of all
previous records stamp the mineral
industry as one of the greatest factors in Canada's industrial and commercial life.
Cold Weather on Prairies
Cold weather is being experienced oh the prairies. Icy blasts
from the Arctic played havoc with
the mercury throughout western
Canada during the night. Extreme
cold is being experienced in Manitoba, the temperature ranging
around thirty degrees below zero.
