Assays from Last
Chance Run High
Over 1000 ozs. Silver per ton
That there are large quantities
of high grade silver ore throughout
the upper Kitsault valley was again
amply proven this week, when Mr,
D. A. McPhail received the assay
returns from the Provincial Government Assay Office, of ore which
had been sent from the Last Chance
and the Independent.
Samples of ore from the Last
Chance assayed 1020 ozs. silver per
ton a,ud $1.30 in gold. The sample
was taken near the surface from a
ledge over forty feet wide, and no
special care was taken to select a
good specimen. , Another sample
taken at- a distance of 1500
feet from the location of the first
sample gave 400 ozs. silver per ton,
and it is presumed that those two
samples are from the same ledge.
The property is owned by ,D. A.
McPhail and P. Morley.    It joins
the Moose on the east, and consists
of six claims.   A tunnel has been
driven for a distance of 65 feet in
order to strike this ledge at depth,
a and ari additional 150 feet has yet
f|© be driven, in order to out the
' }jj$dge.   It is hoped by the owners
flpat it will be possible to do this
work during this year, and if such
is done and ore encountered earry-
. ing the high surface values a big
mine will soon be in the making.
The Last Chance lies on the east
side of the Kitsault river, and on
the same ridge are located: the
Moose, Wolf, Toric, Silver Horde,
etc. all of which have proven that
they carry considerable bodies of
silver ore, and in numerous instan-
' oes the values have run extremely
The great handicap to. this section of the country is the non-
operation of tlie Dolly Varden
railway. If this road was operating steadily there undoubtedly
would be considerable development
work going on and shipments of
ore would be made. The Moose
was ready to ship ore1 -18 months
ago if transportation, could have
been provided, and other properties
would also have made preparations
for ore shipments'; Handcars
wilt doubtless be again used this
summer on the railway, unless the
government decides to operate the1
railway for the, benefit Of the
country, or unless some mining'
company requires the use of the
railway and rolling stook for the
development of properties.
Good Values On Independent
Ore samples sent by Mr. D„ A.
McPhail from the Independent
Group, at the same time that the
Last Chance samples were sent
'gave returns' of 49 ozs. of silver
per ton, and the ore is 95 per cent
silica. This property is situated
on the hill direot west of the town
at a distance of 1500 feet from the
Dolly Varden railway track.
The ledge from which the.ore
was taken is five feet wide and the
ore was taken from the bottom of
a 14-ft shaft. In addition to the
shaft a tunnel 285 feet has been
driven to interseot the ledge, and
an additional 40 or 50 feet remain
to be drivenTJefore the ledge will be
enoountered. A good trail leads to
the property, and it is ideally boated for cheap shipping of ore.

H. F. Kergin Returns
Home from the East
Brings Home the Bacon
Bridge for Kitsault River, also
Float.   Indian Reserve Question
being negotiated
Mr. H. P. Kergin who returned on
Thursday from the east, having been
called home to St. Catherines, Ontario
on the death of his father. While in
the east Mr. Kergin spent some time in
Ottawa, and working in conjunction
with the Federal member, Fred Stork,
was able to transact considerable
business pertaining to the welfare of
this district. >
In regard to the installation of a
float at the government wharf, Mr.
Kergin said that the estimates for a
float at; a costof $1,000 will go in with
the budget. He joined the Prince
Rupert delegation at Ottawa and was
present; when the Indian Beserve
question was threshed out. The Provincial government is anxious to get
the matter cleared up and it now rests
with the Dominion government to
settle the matter of Indian Reserves in
this province. It is possible, however
that another parley with the Indians
maybe necessary.
Another matter in which Mr. Kergin
participated, was the granting of the
30 per cent, of the cost of the Stewart-
Hyder wagon road by the Federal
Government. This matter is now
Anally settled.
On his way, home, Mr. Kergin stopover at Victoria, and pointed out to
.the government the necessity of bridging the Kitsault River this year.
After considerable discussion on the
part of the officials, he was assured
that the' bridge would be built this
year, and as soon as plans were drawn
up the work would be proceeded with.
The necessity of constructing a government building at Anyox this year
was also pointed out by-the member,
and he was assured that in all probability this work would be done.
While in the east Mr. Kergin made
a flying trip to New York. He states
that the weather was extremely cold
throughout the east this spring, and
that he was real glad to be home again
in old B.C.

had been duly satisfied, Mrs.
Macknight on behalf of the Ladies
Aid, presented Mrs. Bashleigh
with a set ot .table linen as a
small token of the esteem in which
she has been held by officers and
members of the Aid.
Mrs. Rashleigh has been a faithful and devoted lnpmber and one
who will be sadly missed. She

affairs connected with the Church
and was always ready to give of
her best for the success of every
endeavour to further the cause of
Christ in our midst. Our hearty
good wishes accompany her.
Mining Properties at
Alice Arm to Work
Plans are already, being made
for the development of mining
properties at Alice Arm. The
Homestake Mining Co. intend to
do considerable work on their property at the Kitsault Glacier this
year. The No. 1 tunnel which was
commenced in 1921 and which had
just encountered ore when operations oeased, will be continued
until the ore body is out through.
Work will then be commenced
on the' No. 2 tunnel, and this
tunnel will be driven as far as
possible. It is anticipated that
about 300'feet of tunnel work will
be done this year, aud it is possible
that the work will be done by contract.
The Alice Arm Holding Co.
intend to drive about 40 feet of
tunnel on the Bellevue, up the
Illiance River, and if this work
proves satisfactory additibnal work
will be done on the property.
As soon as the snow is off the
ground, Mr. A. McGuire will
commence development work on
the War Dance property whioh is
situated on the North-East Fork of
the Kitsault Biver. Vancouver
capital is interested in this property
and considerable work will be done
this year.

would be available three mornings
and two afternoons each week for
school children under sixteen without charge. Everyone willing to
pay the fee set out, will be eligible
to use the courts and enter the
ladder games. In connection with
the suggestion to have Mr. Ellis
sign up all newcomers as members
of the League, Mr. Ellis has been
interviewed and stated that this
had been attempted before and had
produced no beneficial results, but
pointed out that if cards were
printed outlining the objects of the
League and some of the things
which the League had done he
would see that they were presented
to all men signing on the pay-roll.

an institution existed. The Finance Committee had met and

Progressives and Others   -
In all communities, both large
and small, there are always a number of the more progressive citizens
who organize associations. Some
of these organizations are created
to foster the growth of the town or
city by advertising its advantages
to the men with money to invest,
and when necessary, to bring pressure to bear on the government to
foster the industries of the town by
providing proper transportation facilities, etc. Other organizations
are formed in order to provide
amusement and recreation for the
people. The men and women
who give their time and labor freely
and willingly are always numbered
among the more progressive members of the community, and. those
who hold back, ready to reap the
harvest sown by the other fellow
are those who always criticize if
plans miscarry. Any person who
is not a member of some organization working for the welfare of the
town is a doubtful asset to the
community, and he should avoid
criticizing' those who are doing
their best to further the interests of
the community.
Kitsault River Bridge
Up to the time of writing no
word has been received from the
Minister of Public Works that the
Kitsault River bridge will be built
this year. Reports are being constantly issued by the Public Works
Department that the newer sections
of the province will receive the
special attention of the Department
this year. If the other new sections do not receive more consideration than Alice Arm, then all
this talk is bunk. The excuse may
soon be forthcoming that the water
is too high in the river, and then
the construction of a bridge will be
shelved for another year, and so
we go, on and on, and on—-

Anyox Community
League Meeting
Increase in the tax on fuel oil is
again being sought by British Columbia coal interests. Hon. Wm. Sloan,
minister of mines, has given out' figures showing that foreign fuel oil is
displacing coal of the extent of 1,000,
000 tons per annum, with a loss in
revenue to the government of $100,000
yearly to say nothing of the loss to the
producing companies.
tend to encourage the possessors of
coupons to spend more money than
they need to. The question of
how the ball grounds should be
handled in the best interests of all
manner of sport during 1923 would
soon have to be discussed with the
organizations formed to govern the
different leagues and because of
this the Council was asked to give
the League Executive power to
make the necessary arrangements
when the meeting was called.
The Chairman of departments
then made reports. Mr. Seidelman
told of arrangements for a meeting
to be held for the purpose of organizing an International League,
He suggested that the ball uniforms
that were to be used by the
Smelter Team should receive some
attention and be made ready for
the/opening of the season. Mr.
Simpson spoke on the football'
situation and asked that football
sweaters be given the samp treatment as the baseball uniform.
Mrs. Dwyer, bead of the Home and
Sohool Department, asked that the
children's playgrounds be put in
the best possible shape and that
the seats be made ready for the
Mine Road and possibly place one
in front of the Canadian Bank of
Commerce, where it would undoubtedly be very popular.
A letter from the British Columbia Electric, Ltd., was read, stating
that the two fare boxes wanted
had been forwarded and if these
proved acceptable, the price would
be $10.00 each' :or $20.00 for the
two.   The purchase of these boxes
was  authorized   after   inspection
by the   Counoil.    A  letter from
the Vancouver Daily Province was
read.   This was a request from the
editorial department of the Vancouver paper for a write-up on the
Community    League    suggesting
that it might be illustrated with
pictures   of Council, etc.    On   a
motion by Mr. Callanan seconded
by Mrs. Dwyer, the5 Council decided that the matter be left with the
Secretary.    Two communications
were read from the Mine Club, one
asking for the information as to1
who\would operate the Mine tennis
courts for the coming season, the
other asking for a date on Which
the Mine Pool Room accounts could
be checked up.   Not being familiar
to the hew Council, the Secretary
read the proposal to the Mine Club
made by the former Council, aiid
which had been .accepted by the
Mine Club.   The Counoil left .the
matter in the hands of the Secretary to further.

Victoria, April 17th.-^Premier' Oliver is at. present visiting
the" Prairie .provinces. Recently
Winnipeg organizations endeavored
to spike his guns in regard to the
freight rates fight and even petitioned .Saskatoon and other
western prairie cities for financial
assistance in < opposing British
Columbia's claims for equalization

refused the invitation in no uncertain terms and countered by inviting the Premier to address them.
Colonization Scheme for B. C.
Victoria April 17th.—Colonization plans of the government are
rapidly taking shape and ..with the
return to Viotoria shortly of Hon.
T. D; Pattullo, minister of lands, it
is hoped to be ready to commence
settling new citizens on some of the
vacant Islands of British Columbia. His visit to Ottawa and other
eastern cities has undoubtedly
awakened interest in colonization
afresh. The minister stated in
Montreal that Canada could absorb
several hundred thousand new
people every year indefinitely and
British Columbia stands a good
chance of securing a fair share of
this new blood. Agricultural
lauds suitable for all forms of
farming are waiting for development and it is only a matter < of
getting the settler on the land.
Hon. W. H Sutherland,.minister
of public works, announces that
early in May he will tour the
province for the purpose of inspecting provincial roads and ascertain
What highway work should be
carried out this year. He states
it is his intention to provide the
newer sections with as much
highway accomodation as provincial finance will permit. •
