An option has been taken on the
Tiger property by P. E. Peterson,

examination of it and also other
properties in the Upper Kitsault
Mr. Peterson was in charge of
mining operations during the summer for the Silver Crest Mines Co.
Ltd. one of whose properties is at
Stewart, the other being the
Saddle at Hastings Arm, and it
was due to his foresight and experience that such excellent results
were attained, especially at the
The Tiger is considered one of
themost promising silver properties
in the Alice Arm distriot, and it is
expected that Mr. Peterson will be
successful in interesting capital for
its development. It joins theToric
mine on the north, whose big ore
body is waiting to be mined.
It was diamond drilled some
years ago, and this year the owner
Ed. Pickett, was successful in locating every ore body underground.

Marmot Metals Co. Hold
Meeting at Stewart
A meeting of the northern directors of the Marmot Metals Co. Ltd.
was held at Stewart on Tuesday.
Mr. Geo. W. Bruggy, of Alice Arm
who is a director attended the meeting, and arrived home on Thursday.
The meeting lasted from 9 a.m.
until 3 p.m. Several offers that
had been given the company were
discussed in detail. It was decided
to accept the offer of a financial
firm, providing they were agreeable
to a few minor changes, which it
was thought should be made as they
were favorable to the stockholders.

Panatrope's Trial Playing Wins General
For the purpose of demonstrating
the Panatrope to the music and
dance lovers of Anyox, the Community League issued invitations to
all members of the organization, re-
questing them to attend, with their
friends, at the gymnasium on Monday, November 7th. There was a
very generous response to the invitations, a gathering considerably in
excess of five hundred enjoying the
musical selections and the dance
numbers. The Panatrope proved
to be all that its makers claimed for
it, having plenty of volume, with all
most perfect reductions. Overtures
and band pieces sent with the machine by the Brunswick people, its
makers, brought out all its advantages, every instrument in the orchestra and band selections being
readily distinguishable. For concert programmes, where the works
of the great composers can be fittingly reproduced for the benefit of
isolated communities far removed
from the advantage of big cities,
there is a mighty argument in its
favor, and will undoubtedly fill a
long-desired want, while for the
occasional dance or average social
evening, the advisability of such an
instrument would solve many of the
problems confronting the small
town hostess or the social organ!
zation in which she might be interested. It should certainly fit into
the winter social life of Anyox, and
many expressions of approval were
heard in this connection last Monday evening, the majority opinion
so expressed favoring its purchase.
The machine was brought to Anyox
on approval, the Granby Company
and the Community League undertaking to purchase it on a fifty-fifty
basis if the instrument proved satisfactory to the people of the community. With its universal appeal,
music is for everybody, and has no
national limitations. Anyox has a
mixed population, many of its citizens being foreigners, who would
undoubtedly appreciate such music
as the Panatrope reproduces. When
the pleasure to be derived from the
possession of such an instrument is
considered, even the retail price of
this instrument is neglible, being
cheaper than a player piano with a
range of entertainment infinitely
greater; but when in can be secured
for a very considerable reduction,
there is scarcely an argument
weighty enough to make the refusal
of the bargain a serious consideration. Should the offer be taken
advantage of and the machine come
to Anyox, it does not necessarily
follow that the orchestras now
functioning will have no further opportunity of playing for dances, etc.
because the verdict of the people
who dance must be final, as they
are the ones who pay the piper.
The Community League is to be
commended for taking advantage of
the Panatrope's coming to make an
Basketball Season Open
With Great Promise
In Anyox
The opening of the basketball
season on Wednesday evening
featured games in all three leagues.
The Rinky Dinks and the High
School supplied the opener. The
latter swamping their opponents
under an avalanche of baskets, the
final score being 50-7.
In the second game the Pirates
and Musketeets of the Ladies'
League played a close game, the
former winning 18-14. Both teams
show much promise and as the
season advances should prove very
evenly matched and conducive of
some good matches. This game
was only an exhibition fixture.
In the Senior tussle the Concentrator defeated the Mechanics 18-16.
The game was nip and tuck, from
start to finish with the winners in
doubt until the final whistle.
There are four teams in the senior
leagues. Namely the Concentrator,

Big Ore Showings On
Beaver Property
The Illiance.River valley section
of the Alioe Arm district has not
received very much attention during ths past few years, but this
inactivity promises to terminate
before very long.
Development work done this
year by J. Hauber on the Beaver
Group has undoubtedly proved the
existence of a large body of
ore and its immensity is
expected to interest mining men in
this section next year.
Mr. Hauber has concentrated
work this year ou two big ore
bodies. These can be traced on
the surface for over four claim
lengths, and vary in width from
40 to nearly 100 feet. In driving
open outs on tliese ledges he broke
through the iron capping and encountered ..(jhaloopyrite-bornite
copper ore in large quantities.
The two ore bodies parallel each
other. Close by runs a shear zone
on the contact of the granite-quart-
zite and red and green audesite.
It has a heavy capping of iron, but
open cuts show that below it contains an ore composed of silver-
copper and lead, the latter predominating. It has air average width
of nearly 100 feet.
The Beaver Group is situated 13
miles up the Illiance Valley and
comprises 8 olaims. A deal was
almost consummated this year, but
the terms were not acceptable to
the owner. He therefore decided to do further development work next year, wheu
he will be iu a better position to
put through a deal.
Catala Piles on Rocks
on Way South
The Union Company's steamship
Catala piled up on the rocks on
Tuesday afternoon on her way south
to Prince Rupert and Vancouver.
The accident occurred three miles
south of Port Simpson, at about
1.15 in the afternoon. The impact
tore a large hole in the ship's bottom, and all passengers were ordered to the boats. She carried about
forty passengers from Alice Arm,
Anyox and Stewart.
A number of people at Port
Simpson saw the ship's predicament and several boats immediately
put off to her assistance. Boats
also proceeded north from Prince
Rupert. A number of passengers
spent the night at Port Simpson in
the houses of the townspeople,
while others were conveyed to
Prince Rupert.
All efforts of tugs to pull her off
the rocks the following day were
futile. On Thursday the highest
tide of the year occurred and this
attempt to refloat was unsuccessful.
It will entail much work to refloat
her. ALICE  ARM   AND   ANYOX   HERALD,   Saturday.    November   12 1927

Canadian Births, Deaths and
Marriages Last Year
The vital statistics of Canada
for the oalendar year 1926 showed
a total of 232.205 living births.
107,318 deaths and 69,570
marriages. This is the first year
in which all the nine provinces are
included in the figures, Quebec
having heretofore been estimated
separately. The birthrate of the
nine was 24.8 per 1,000 population
Quebec leading with 32.1. The
same provinoe also led in the death
rate of 14.5.
Canada  is  World's  Third
Gold Producer
Canada's gold production in 1926
again made a record with a yield
of $37,263,110, as against $35,880,-
826 in 1925. Ontario contributed
most of the product of 1,497,215
ounces, making a new record for
that province. Canada now occupies third place in world gold
countries and may probably soon
reach second place at the present
rate of production.

The Mining Laws of this Province are more liberal and the fees lower than those of any other Province
in the Dominion, or any Colony in the British Empire.
Mineral locations are granted to discoverers for nominal fees.
Absolute Titles are obtained by developing such properties, security of which is guaranteed by
Crown Grants.
Practically all British Columbia Mineral Properties upon which development work has been dono

Large Amount Coal Mined
From Under Ocean
Twenty-five per oent. of the

from submarine areas, and 55 per
cent, of the ooal output of Nova
Scotia is drawn from beneath the
ocean. The world output of submarine coal is at this date 13,000,-

per cent of this total. With the
exception of the undersea ooal
mined in Chile and Japan, respectively 1,200,000 and 1,500,000 tons
per year, the remainder is mined
within the British Empire, namely
in Great Britain, Canada and Australia.

ANOTHER railroad milestone
of Western Canada was
passed on April 20, when the
first engine ever constructed in
this part of the Dominion was
turned out of the Canadian National Railways Transcona Shops
at Winnipeg, where it was built.
Engine 2747 shown above was constructed entirely in the local shop*,
the work being done in addition to
*be regular output of repairs to
other engines. After the various
parts were made, the frames for
the locomotive were laid down on
March 11 and construction was
completed on April 19th, a total of
27 working days, the' first run
being made to Winnipeg on the following day.
Number 2747 is classed as a 38%
engine, is capable of main and
branch line freight handling and
has sufficient speed to run the
Transcontinental.   The weight of
the locomotive and tender complete
is 193 tons. After trial runs, it will
be'used on main line time freight
trains on the Alberta district of
the Canadian National, where the
best use can be made of this class
of locomotive and where the fuel
saving devices with which it it
equipped will give the most economical results. Number 2748, which
is now in course of construction at
Transcona, will be ready for service ?*-Alberta in May.
