Big Ore Body On Silver
Cord Now Being
Crosscut
Crosscutting the big ore body at
the Silver Cord has been commenc
ed, and on Thursday the first cross
cut tunnel had been driven a distance of 22 feet with the face still
in ore. The last two shifts disclosed
a higher grade of ore than has yet
been encountered in this tunnel.
Work will be continued until the
wall is reached, when a crosscut
will be driven on the opposite side
of the tunnel, and it is expected that
the ore at this point will be fully
100 feet wide.
Altogether about 300 feet of
crosscutting will be done, and this
will give an idea of the extent of the
ore. The completion of this work
will also decide the size of the compressor plant necessary to further
develop the ore bodies of this
promising property.
Anyox Juveniles Busy
With Salmon
Si
Spring is here and the sound of
the motor put-put is heard on the
wharf. The kids are all out salmon
fishing, and mothers are all busy
washing the scent of fish out of
kids overalls. So far there has
been some very good catches and it
is not an uncommon spectacle for
people on the wharf to watch some
diminutive fisherman straining himself in an effort to land a twenty
pounder. The boy with a' trolling
outfit is some pumpkin these days.
A word to the wise. When leaving
on a boat trip be sure and sign up
on tbe Community League notice
board. It's there to be used, and
please leave the chalk in the box.
It may save a life.
Arrangements Made For The
League of Nations Meeting
So far the efforts of the local
committee of the League of Nations
Society to secure the services of an
outside speaker for the mass meeting in the Recreation Hall, on April
23rd, have proved, futile. Nevertheless it has been determined to
proceed with the arrangements, and
in a few days the special posters
from Ottawa will be on display here.
An effort will be made to make the
occasion an attractive one and the
programme committee are arranging for the services of an orchestra
and other vocal and instrumental
numbers. Remember the date,
April 23rd. Discourage war. Encourage arbitration and peace.
Help the League.
Large Crowd Celebrates
Anniversary Of

War was held in the Elks' Hall by

was a grand success. Beginning at
9 p.m. it was carried on until 2 a.m

being at 12 o'clock when all journeyed to the dugout to enjoy a bountiful supper. The hopes of the promoters were readily fulfilled by the
large attendance present.

streamers, and the names of famous
battles in which Canadians won un
dying glory was emblazoned on the
walls.
Music was supplied by the Moose
orchestra, and their superb render

floor thronged with dancers through
out the evening.
The supper was donated by the

The will to pay is heredity, just
as red hair or buck teeth. It is a
common fallacy that a man pays
his debts because he has money.
This is not necessarily true. On
the contrary, the matter of paying
has only a remote relation to money.
On the one hand is your friends
with abundance of money, who
cannot be cajoled, threatened, beaten or gassed into paying the most
ordinary debt.
On the other hand, the poor
fellow without a visible dollar---you
know him—who is Johnny on the
Invoice. Money has little to do
with either case. It is the breed
of the man.
The man who pays is the man
who thinks in advance. He never
flashes a roll; he does not drive a
car and carry a mortgage at the
same time; he does not hang up the
butcher, or the grocer, for food
that he can not afford to eat; he
never lights the fire without wondering where the coal man gets off.
He never gives notes nor writes
checks dated tomorrow, but when
the bills come in, he is there with
the coin of the realm.
Sometimes he feels sore at the
rest of us. He does not see that
he gets on any better than the
fellow who skins as he goes. Still
he goes on and on, pays and pays,
simply because it is in the breed.
And after all, the World does
think a lot of his breed. The man
who pays is the bulwark of Society.
He is the balance wheel of civilization. He is the mainspring of
Commerce. Business blesses him
and he has honor among men for
all time.
Gross Negligence Cause
Of Hollinger Miners'
Deaths
Fatal Accidents in South
African Gold Mines
About 20,000 whites and 186,000
natives are employed in the Transvaal gold mines. In 1926, the tons
of ore milled amounted to 29,485,
572 and production of gold was 9.
666,901 oz. Fatalities in mining
operations were 545 in the first
eleven months of 1927, compared to
429 for the corresponding period of
1926.
Women don,t play baseball
because the players are too far
apart to talk.
The Coroner's jury called for the
purpose of inquiring into the death
of 39 miners killed in the Hollinger
mine disaster of Feb. 10 has returned the following verdict:
"We the jury assembled, find
that Lindsay, Kampala, Gardez
(over whose bodies the inquest was
held) and others came to their
deaths between the morning of
Friday, Feb. 10, and Monday, Feb.
13, 1928, at the Hollinger mine,
from carbon monoxide poisoning
due to the fire in stope 55 A.
"That fire was due to gross neg
licence on the part of the Hollinger
management and the operating executives in allowing conditions to
exist whereby their subordinates
dumped large quantities of inflammable material in old stopes.
"We recommend that the old
stopes where the rubbish has been
dumped be cleaned out or made
safe under the supervision of the
government inspectors and that
more mining inspectors be appointed."
Minimum Wage Act Effects
Restaurants
The latest order of the board administering the male minimum
wage act went into effect cm Sunday, April 1. in the catering business of British Columbia. It provides a minimum wage for all catering employees of 32j cents an hour
for a straight shift or 35 cents for
a split shift, where free meals are
provided. Where meals are not
provided the rate will be 40 cents
for a straight shift or 52| cents
for a split shift.
It is estimated that 2500 men

Structural Materials and Miscellaneous Minerals, $50,175,407, making its mineral production to the end
of 1926, show an
Aggregate Value of $988,108,470
The substantial progress of the Mining industry of this Province is strikingly exhibited in the following
figures, which show the value of production for successive five-year periods:   For all years to 1895, inclusive $94,547,241; forfive years, 1896 1900, $57,607,967; for five years, 1901-1905, $96,507,968; for five yearp

By Strawberry Flats and the Silver Daisy
1—Fails about 5 miles (rom Hope
J—On the trail
The little village ot Hope, situated on the Fraser Biver
about one hundred miles from the coast, is the
starting point for all mountaineers wishing to reach the
interior of British Columbia by the trail route. It is a
scattered village of about two hundred inhabitants but
possessing both an abundance of natural beauty and
a truly romantic past. The village is flanked on one side
by the noble Fraser river, while from the other side one
looks up three wide draws in the mountain ranges.
The one to the left is the beautiful Coquihalla valley
• i-mgh which the turbulent Coquihalla river cascades
. >va pasB unmatched for rugged grandeur. Through
t.nd pass too, under innumerable snow sheds and
tunnels the Kettle Valley Railway goes to Princeton
and the inteiNir. In the centre is an opening for the
Nicolum river, to the right is the Silver Creek draw
and beyond it the snow-capped peaks of the Cascade
range.
The mountain trail over the Hope Pass is the old one
known as the Dewdney which was surveyed and partly
built for twenty-five miles out of Hope, by English
Sappers in 1861. It winds up the Coquihalla River for
a short distance, then branches off with the Nicolum. a
tributary of the former river. The way lies through
Sylvan glades, past rushing waterfalls and over rustic
bridges, the old dry "cribbing" of which is as firm as the
day When it was laid.
The first feeding ground for horses is at 12 Mile Lake
—otherwise known as Divide Lake at an altitude of
2300 feet. This lake is the head waters of the Nicolum
river. Here there is a beautiful hay meadow owned by a
trapper and prospector who is patiently awaiting the
day when the transprovincial road will give him a means
of transporting his wealth, in the shape of hay, to outside
points.
At 22 Mile there is another beautiful camping spot.
Here there is a large cabin situated in the forest's heart
on the very banks of the Skagit river. The owner of it
carries on prospecting and mining operations in the
vicinity. He appropriately calls his cabin "Defiance
Camp" and his mine "The Silver Daisy." '
From here on for many miles the scenery becomes
more wonderful, If that were possible, but at the same
time more wild and rugged. The Pass, a narrow hallway
bounded by cliffs thousands of feet high, Is a Bight of
never-ending marvel. At one spot, known as Skagit
Muffs, the trail (a bare 18 Inches wide) winds around the
1—The Summit
*—Defiance Gamp
shoulder of a cliff which towers above and drops away
a sheer one thousand feet to the bed of too river below.
Then the trail once more drops down to the next
feeding grounds at Cayuse Flats which has a sister spot
three miles farther on—Cedar Plate. Beyond Cedar
Flats lies a long strip of heavy cedar timber, a true
"forest primeval." Strawberry Flats, a pleasant open
field on the Skagit river at a height of 8700 feet ia the hat
stopping place before the actual ascent to the summit
begina. Here, in spite of the high altitude, wild strawberries grow in abundance.
In the next 2300 feet (of the perpendicular of course!)
one is led to the summit by a series of switchbacks atg-
zagging up the face of the mountain. The river, which at
the foot appeared a torrent, la here a tiny stream,
a mere trickle over the atones. Below, the sver-Urtkia
hills unroll themselves for a hundred miles of valley and
peak.
When the summit itself is attained a sight never to ba
forgotten appears. A wide open meadow Ilea In an
inverted crown on the mountain top. Around Ma edge
rise whitish cliffs scarcely distinguishable from the many
snow bantu. And everywhere, even beside the mow,
grows a bewildering variety of wild flowers.
In the centre of the depression lie two lakes, the
dividing of the waters, for from the one goat the Skagit
river towards the sea and from the other flows the Whip
Saw Creek towards the interior lakes.
As soon as the descent of the eastern alope is began
a great change is noticeable. The grade Is easy and
steady, the country becomes more open and is clear of
the under-brush and ferns so characteristic of the western
slope.
The last camp Is twenty miles from Princeton but the
last nine miles of that distance are covered by a good
motor road, the beginning of the proposed Trans-
provincial-highway from Princeton to Hope.

Work at Flin Flon
Mine
Hudson Bay Mining & Smelting,
which owns the Flin Flon mine, is
already working on plans for a 3,
000-ton concentrator and a smelter
of sufficient capacity to handle the
product from the mill. Production from the mine is expected to
start in 1930, and in the interval
$10,000,000 will be spent on mining plant and smelter.. Power development is now under consideration. No decision has as yet been
made between the Island Falls
power, in the Churchill River, and
that from White Mud Falls, on the
Nelson River. It is expected that
tlie railway will be completed to a
point where cement and structural
steel can be carried to the mine
some time this spring. The permanent roadbed should be completed by 1929, after which the line
should be operating regularly.
Distance lends enchantment to a
debt.
