Alice Arm Will Make
Big Camp Says Mining
Engineer
Capital and the right kind of development will make the Alice Ann
mining distriot of British Columbia one of the best in the province,
according to Roland King, mining
engineer of Spokane, who reoetitlv
returned from inspecting properties
in that district. King is president
of the C. M. Fasset Co. of
Spokane.
"I examined the property of the
Keystone Mining Company while
in the Alice Arm district," said
King. "It is a silvor-lead-zine
proposition with good surface
showings located in the same district as^tlie Dolly Varden mine. It
is iu the gr'anite-argelliteformation
and the ore deposition occurs along
the contact with tlie coast batho-
lite. The property is yet only a
prospect, but with development
should become a producer,
"The Alice Arm district is mineralized right to the water's edge.
Tlie mineralization is in quartz
veins along the contact, in the
granite-argellite formation, which
appears to be a geological phenom-
inaof the district.
"I believe the Alice Arm district
is only part of a mineralized belt
that extends along the British Columbia coast and north into Alaska.
In this belt the following mines are
found: Engineer. Toric, Dolly
Varden, Premier, Dunwell, B. C.
Silver and others. They are all
along the contact with the granite
batliolite that extends along the
coast."
King states that the ore of the
district runs to high values in silver
and iu one small property he saw
splendid specimens of ruby and
wire silver.
While in the district King said
that he heard from several sources
that operations at the Dolly Varden
mine were to be resumed.
King   was  also  impressed    by
other resources of the Alice Arm
I section especially the abundance of
water power and the amount   of
| timber.—Spokane Mining Truth.
I Alice Arm Road Completed
The new street, which has been constructed by the Public Works Department, connecting with the Shore
Road at the Welcome Hotel, and extending to the lower portion of the
town has been completed. A sidewalk
has been built on each side, and the
whole adds considerably to thedignity
of the town. Excellent workmanship
was shown in its construction, which
reflects credit on those in charge,
namely J, Wells district foreman and
U. Graham. A short road and sidewalk was also built south of G. W.
Brnggy's general store. Several low
its along Valley Road have also
sn repaired, which will be Instrumental in curtailing the cuss words of
ledestrians who use it during the dark
lights of the rainy reason.
Another Anyox Record Broken
Another record was broken in Anyox
Iast week. This time, it was done by
he Coastwise Steamship and Barge
!o. whose boats handled record out-
lound cargoes.
The S. S. Mogul left with the biggest
ingle cargo over taken from Anyox,
lonsisting of 4,578 tons.    The Amur
]eft with 2,150 tons, and the   Griffco
vitti 2,250 tons.   The cargoes consisted
T copper, concentrates and ore.
The S. S. Marmion arrived at Anyox
Irom Stewart last Saturday with 250
Ions of Premier ore, and towing scow
Tlriff with 800 tons.
230 Children Attended
Anyox Schools
On Saturday, at 7 p.m. the
annual meeting of the School
Board Trustees was held in the
Public School. Mr. W. F. Barclay
acted as chairman. The minutes
of the previous meeting were read
and adopted. The amount of
expenditures during the past term
amounted to $15,056.85 and this
was approved by the meeting.
An estimate of expenditure for
the ensuing year amounted tofld-
278.00. School children who attend
ed High School were 31. and public
school attendance numbered 199,
making a total of 230.
The above includes all pupils who
have been taught by the Granby
Go school staff.
The school saving system was
very effective, over $6,500.00 having
been saved by the children through
School Bank in four years.
During last winter night classes
under the auspices of the Granby
Bay School Board, were conducted
iii the following subjects: English
for foreigners, electricity, mineralogy, mechanical drawing, metallurgy, High School subjects and
instrumental music.

Anyox Figure Wizards
Trim the Store Boys
The second game in the Brewery
League was played on Wednesday
evening, when the Office triumphed
over the General Store eleven runs t*t
nine. The losers led most of the way,
but a last inning rally by the winners
which netted them four runs put the
game on ice. "Bullet" Chris Cane
pitched five innings for the losers, but
the pace proved too fast for Chris and
he was dcrricked in fayor of Adams.
Harry Chapman turned in a nice game
in the right garden for the Store.
Harry is a veritable speed demon on
the paths and also a mean man with
the willow. Japk Moore tossed them
over in fine style for the winners, he
went the entire distance without difficulty and an even dozen of the opposition were retired via the strike out
route. Geo Lace wus the big man with
the stick when he poled out a nice
three base clout in the fifth inning.
"Iodine" Hill was behind the log for
the Store and caught a fine game,
many of the opposition being caught
flat footed in attempting to steal
second. Walter Olson was the umpire,
he called them in fine style, altho' he
wasted no time in leaving the park
after the game.

Melodians Hold Big Dance at
Alice Arm Hotel
An extraordinary number of
Anyox people assembled at the
Alice Arm Hotel on Saturday,
when a dance was held by the
Mine Club Melodians.
Space on the floor was taxed to
the limit throughout the evening,
and the celebrated Mine orchestra
kept things moving at a lively pace.
Everyone enjoyed themselves,
and the Melodians are to be complimented on enabling everyone to
spend such a pleasant evening.
Large numbers of the visitors
extended their visit until Sunday
evening. Beautiful weather prevailed, and the magnificentscenery
of the district was greatly admired.

Dr. F. L. Slocum, the eminent
geologist and mining engineer of
Pittsburg, Pennsylvania, who has
made an exhaustive examination
of the Dolly Varden and Wolf
mines, and also the entire
upper Kitsault country, completed his work last Saturday.
During the latter ten days he was
assisted by J. F. Tener of Vanoouver, who made an examination
of the properties last summer.
Dr. Slocum spent a whole month
in the district, during which he
gathered a mass of valuable data.
Interveiwed by the Herald, he was
reticent in regard to making a
public statement of probable future
developments, but stated that he
came to spend a few days, and
found the country interesting
enough to spend a month. He
left for Pittsburg on Monday via
Vancouver.
Existence of Tremendous
Ore Bodies Proved on
Marmot Metals
Eagle, LeRoy and Silver
Cord will be Developed
A programme of development
work has been outlined on the
Alice Arm properties of the British
Colonial Securities Ltd. of Vancouver, states W. G. McMorris,
manager of the company, who
arrived in Alice Arm on Monday.
The properties controlled by the
company are the Eagle, near the
La Rose, and the Silver Cor^ and
LeRoy on the North-east fork of
the Kitsault river.
The first work undertaken will
consist of surface stripping of the
ore bodies, and this has already
commenced on the Eagle. When
this work has progressed far
enough to determine the size and
dip of the ore bodies, it is probable
that they will be further developed
by diamond drilling.
Mr. McMorris will spend a week
examining the properties, accompanied by W. S. Bacon, mining
ing engineer of Vancouver.
Alice Arm will be Ensured
against Kitsault River Floods
P. Philip, assistant provincial
superintendent of public work, G.
C. Mackay district engineer, and
W. Talbot assistant district engineer, left Alice Arm last Friday
after inspecting work under way
and laying plans for future undertakings.
When taking his departure, Mr.
Philip stated that the west bank
of the Kitsault river would be
strengthened this year, so that any
danger of flooding the town would
be eliminated.
Mining Exchange Opened
Harry Smith Ltd. of Alice Arm,
has opened a mining exchange,
rentals and notary public office in
the Nuoioh Block. Another long
felt want has been filled, and it is
an additional sign that the prosperity of the camp is increasing.
That the mining property
owned by the Marmot Metals
Mining Co. and situated on the
Marmot river near Stewart, will
develop into one the biggest producers of the district is the opinion
of Geo. W. Bruggy of Alice Arm
who visited the property last week
and who is one of the chief stock
holders.
Mr. Bruggy states that the large
ore showings recently discovored
are almost unbelievable. He was
accompanied by Angus McLeod,
managing director and superintendent of the company and
a thorough examination was made.
The No. 1 ledge has been traced
on the surface for a distance of
1200 feet, and is still being followed.
A sample taken across 15 feet gave
returns of $26.80 per ton in gold
silver and zinc. The ground at
this point is extremely steep, and
it is estimated that this vertical
steepness proves the ore at a depth
of 600 feet without the expense of
driving a tunnel.
An ore sample from ledge No. 2
gave values of $21.60 per ton in
gold, silver and zinc.

Steadily each year the number
of visitors to Alice Arm from
Anyox increases, and before the
end of the present summer season
it is expected that all previous records will be broken. For those
who desire a quiet rest, close to
nature, Alice Arm is the ideal
place. For those who desire
strenuous exercise to harden their
muscles and expand their lungs, by
hikes through the woods, mountain
climbing or rowing, Alice Arm
offers a splendid opportunity. Its
hillsides are covered with berries;
its gardens full of flowers and
vegetables. It is one of nature s
beauty spots of the coast. For
those who wish to spend an inexpensive vacation, amid the beauties
of nature, the district of Alice Arm
is second to none on the continent.
The improving of the street
system of Alice Arm. by the Public Works Department is a commendable undertaking. We
realize that the first work in the
district is to give access to mining
properties, but it must be admitted
that the town has been sadly
neglected. Alice Arm is the distributing point for a rich and
extensive mineral region, and it is
high time it commenced to take on
a more important appearance. It
is the first view that greets the
visitor, and a neat and attractive
town indicates a rich tributary
country, and it also spells permanency. Alice Arm has been in
existence long enough to emerge
from the jumble-of-shacks period,
and its future warrants still further
substantial improvements.
Anyox is the wonder city of
British Columbia. Year in and
year out it pours out it's vast wealth
of copper, gold and silver. It produces more copper than any other
town in the British Empire. It
employs over 1000 men through the
year. It's payroll of nearly $2,
000,000 and an equal amount for
supplies is distributed throughout
the province. It pays enormous
sums into the provincial treasury
for taxes. Each year hundreds
arrive from all over the province to
take a hand directly or indirectly
in the creating of this wealth.
Each year hundreds who have
accumulated a modest sum leave,
some to purchase a small ranch,
some to enter business, while
others just desire a change from the
monotony of everyday work of a
smelter town. Year by year
without ostentation the work  of
History and Production
of Word's Early
Gold Countries
Gold is the most ductile of all the
metals. 11 is too soft for use pure, and
to harden it, it is alloyed with copper
or silver. The coinage of the British
Bin pi re contains 22 parts of gold to
two parts of copper. Such gold is said
to be 22 carats line. Gold is first mentioned in the Bible in Genesis II-II.
The rivers (lowing out of Eden are
enumerated and one is said to flow
through a land where there is gold.
The value of gold compared with
silver is said to have been estimated in
the time of the Greek historian Herodotus, 450 B. C. at about ten to one-
At the time of the Greek philosopher
Plato, 380 B. (J., it \yas 12 to one; today
it is about thirty to one.
Tbe Spaniards discovered gold in
South America in 1493, from which
time until 1731 they carried from South
America 6,000 millions of "pieces of
eight" in registered gold and silver,
exclusive of what was unregistered.
One piece of gold weighing 60 pounds
troy was found near La Paz, a town in
Peru, in 1730.
Gold was discovered in Malacca in
1732; in New Andalusia in 1785; in Ceylon in 1800. Gold was discovered in
California in September, 1817; and in
Australia in 1851. It is estimated that
between 1851 and 1859 gold to value of
$450,000,000 was exported from Vic:
toria, Australia alone.
In April, 1858, gold was discovered
in British Columbia, and a rush of
miners to the goldfields followed. In
New Zealand gold was discovered in
1861, and in the Transvaal, in South
Africa. The Witwatersrand, South
Africa, was declared a public goldfield
in September, 1886. In South Australia
gold discoveries were made in October of that year. In West Australia
discoveries were made in July, 1891.
In theKlondike district of the Yukon
Territory, gold was discovered in 1896.
The new goldfield proved to be one of
the richest in the world, and fortunes
we're obtained from placer mining.
During the past ten years production
has greatly fallen off, but hydraulic
mining is still carried on by several
companies.

Existence of Tremendous
Ore Bodies Proved on
Marmot Metals
Continued from Page 1
Ledges No. 3 and 4 were not
sampled, as a cut will be made
aoross them and samples then
assayed.
A solid ore sample taken from
No. 1 ledge gave returns of 0.97
gold, 10.01 silver, and 46 per cent
zinc, a total value   of   $93.00   per
ton.
While descending tho hill an outcropping was noticed by Mr.
McLeod, and a sample broken off
for assaying, An examination
showed it to contain ruby silver
and when assayed it gave the
gratifying result of 68 ozs. silver
per ton.
This recent big zinc discovery on
the Marmot Metals is the second
in the north,- the only other big
known zinc deposits is located on
McGrath mountain at Alice Arm.
Mr. Bruggy on his return trip to
Stewart and Hyder when
questioned regarding the recent
big discovery advised his friends to
inspect it themselves as the magnitude of the ore bodies were unbelievable unless seen.
The property is only i\ miles
from tidewater. It is connected
with a good pack trail, and a
wagon road is now being built by
the government. It is being developed under the efficient management of Angus McLeod, who is one
of the best practical mining men in
• the north. He is also in charge of
development work at the Big Missouri.
While at Stewart Mr. Bruggy
visited the Premier, B. C. Silver,
Big Missouri and other operating
mines. Fifteen years ago he hiked
the Salmon River valley with a
pack, and an indifferent foot trail,
but now the same journey was
made sitting on soft cushions in an
automobile. He was accompanied
on the trip by his daughter
Kathleen.
