Britannia   Co.   Takes
Over Dolly Varden
Wolf and Railway,
The Britannia Mining and
Smelting Co. have exercised their
option on the Dolly Varden and
Wolf mines, and have taken over
these two properties. Price and
terms of transaction have not been
niade publio.
In addition to the taking over of
the two mining properties, the
Britannia Co. have also acquired
control of the Dolly Varden railway, wharf, rolling stock and
buildings at Camp 8. Also all
equipment at Camp 8, the Dolly
Varden mine and wharf warehouse
As the season is too late for the
developing of the Dolly Varden
and Wolf this year, no development work is planned until next
spring. It is expected that next
slimmer a considerable amount of
money will be spent in repairing
the Dolly Varden railway, and in
developing the Dolly Varden and
Wolf. The Toric mine, as stated,
will he developed throughout the
coining winter.
The acquisition of the Dolly
Varden and Wolf was made directly after the visit of President
W;-J. Quigley and General Manager C. P. Browning of the Britannia Co. to the Upper Kitsault
country.
The decision of the Britannia
Co. in taking over the Dolly Varden and Wolf, railway, etc. is
proof that they consider . the Upper Kitsault country a rich mineral area. They are a company
that does mining on a large scale.
During the past year their geologists have made an intensive examination of the Toric and adjacent ground, and the result of
their efforts is that they evidently
consider the ore bodies large
enough and values sufficient to undertake development on a large
scale.
Officers Elected For Atlin
Teachers' Association
The South Atlin Teachers' As-
| sociation held its annual meeting
last Saturday when the executive
for the coming year was chosen.
|The Officers will   be:   President.
Miss Hester Richards; Vice-president, Miss Doris Greenwood; Sec-
. retary   Treasurer,   Miss    Elinor
Ormrod; Executive members, Mr.
D. J. Hartley and Mr. A. E. Vogee;
Auditors,  Miss   Eleanor   Heaney
and Miss Jean Keith,
The possibility of arranging a
Inoiivention of northern teachers at
■Prince Rupert was discussed and
Inquiries in this connection will he
|made. It was suggested also that
iii effort be made  to attract the
Inany former teachers in this neigh-
)ourhood to become associate niem-
>ers of the Federation. The fee of
wo dollars obtains, among other
I'd vantages, one year's subscription
the Federation's monthly mag-
Izine.
Option Taken Cariboo
Group.  Molybdenum
Ore Extensive
The Cariboo group, consisting of
four claims, situated on Lime Creek
across the inlet from Alice Arm,
has been optioned by D. S. Tate,
mining man of Vancouver, The
property is owned by J. Wells of
Alice Arm.
The ores of the Cariboo run high
in molybdenum, The surface
showings are enormous. There art-
four big parallel zones, which together, have a width of 1000 feet,
and can be traced for two claim
lengths. The showings are only
two miles from the beach.
Mr. Tate is also interested in
the Tidewater Molybdenum, which
lies directly across the inlet. This
property is credited with having
the finest molybdenum ore found
in Canada, and lies directly on the
waterfront.
These two properties comprise
the largest known deposit of molybdenum ore in the Dominion.
And lying as it does on tidewater
the ore can be mined and treated
at a very small cost. Every year
for the past eight years ore from
the Tidewater Molybdenum has
taken first prize at the Vancouver
exhibition.
It is not expected that these
two properties will remain idle.
It is understood that negotiations
are being conducted with a big
English mining concern for the
taking over of the properties.
There is an increasing demand
for molybdenum. It is used chiefly
by big steel manufacturers in
hardening and toughening steel.
Other uses are also being found
for it.
Alice Arm Was Named
After Pioneer Lady
The town of Alice Arm derived
its name from the narrow strip of
water branching off from Observatory Inlet. How this piece of water received its name has been the
source of much local speculation
during recent years.
Dr. Geo. Hanson, of the Dominion Geological Survey Department,
who has spent several summers in
the district, gives the reason for the
word "Alice" in his report covering
his work here in 1928.
In the introduction of his report
he states that: ''Observatory Inlet
was named by Captain Vancouver
in 1793. Alice Arm was named in
1869 after Alice, wife of the Rev.
Robt. Tomlinson who was in charge
of the Church Missionary Society
Mission at Kincolith." Exactlv
sixty years ago this pleasant piece
of water was named. An enduring
memorial to that pioneer ladv of
the north who forsook the comforts
of civilization in order to be with
her husband in ministering to the
spiritual and bodily wants of the
then savage inhabitants of the
north coast.
Anyox Choral  Society
Gives Splendid
Concert
The Anyox Choral Society afforded an excellent evening's entertainment on Friday last. Besides the credit due to those taking
part, the affair constitutes also a
considerable personal triumph for
the Conductor, Mr. N. R. Redman.
The performance was uniformly
good. The acting in the musical
sketches, "House Hunting" and
"The Tea Shop" was very clever.
Considerable talent was shown by
those taking part.
With the ladies in white and
the gentlemen in black the choir
presented a good appearance on a
stage which had received the utmost attention. Particularly
striking was the stage setting for
"Love's Old Sweet Song", the audience applauding both the decorative arrangement and the clever
off-stage singing of the Choir.
The male choruses were well rendered and received.
Individual performers achieved
notable success, Mrs. R. Douglas'
debut on the local stage evoking
great applause.
This was the first appearance
this season of the Anyox Choral
Society, and it is hoped that they
will hold several more concerts
during the winter months.
The programme is as follows:
Part Song, "Land of Hope and
Glory."   Choir.
Tenor Solo, "Friend of Mine."
R. Ridley.
Part Song, (a) "Keep on Hopin"
(b) "Tell Me Not."   Choir.
Male Quartette. Messrs. Anderson, Pinckney, Redman, Col-
clough,
Part Song (a) "Come to the
Fair,"  (b) John Peel.    Choir.
Contralto Solo, "If I might only
come to You."   Mrs. T. Pinckney.
Musical Sketch, "The Tea Shop"
A. C. S.
Male Chorus, (a) "Sleep Gentle
Lady." (b) Sleep, Pickanniny
Sleep.    Choir.
Contralto Solo, "Angus MacDonald."    Mrs. R. Douglas.
Part Song, (a) "Old Fashioned
Town," (b) "Loves Old Sweet
Song,"   Choir.
Violin Solo, "Moto Perpetuo."
C. Dennis.
Music Sketch, "House Hunting"

Leaves For South
H. J. Stevens of the Canadian
Bank of Commerce left for the
south on Wednesday. After a vacation he will resume duty with
the Grand Forks branch. Mr.
Stevens has been active in social
and athletic circles and his departure is regretted.
Hallowe'en Dance Was
Enjoyed By Large
Gathering
The Hollowe'e:i Dance held on
Monday evening at the Beach
Gymnasium was easily one of tbe
outstanding dances of the season.
It was held under the auspices of
the Anyox Hospital Ladies' Auxiliary, and to these ladies, great
credit is due for the excellent arrangements made and the success
attained.
The hall was thronged with happy dancers throughout the evening. The snappy rippling music
of the Novelty Six Orchestra kept
everyone in perpetual motion.
The sumptuous, appetising supper
provided supplied the additional
vim to those whose spirits had
commenced to lag and the dance
was carried on till the small wee
hours.
Everyone was presented with a
fancy paper hat which raided to
the gaiety of the scene.
The names of the ladies and
their assistants who were responsible for the evening's entertainment were not available this week,
but will be published in our next
issue.
The hall was a riot of color with
seasonable Hollowe'en decorations,
and the general effect was very
pleasing.
Golf Players Hold Another
Tournament
Luckily for the Golf Club on
Sunday there was an intermission
in the steady downpour of rain.
The fine day brought forth over
thirty couples to take part in a
mixed foursome handicap. Mrs.
G. H. Stewart and Mr. Sid Peters
emerged victors. Competition
grows keener as the novices improve.
Among the arrivals on Wednesday were: J J. Hatta, J. Delish,
P. Labraky and Mr. Potter.
Mrs. Lazoreek and Mrs. A. Poch-
eck arrived on Wednesday from
the south.
Clearing Alice Arm Streets
The new streets of Alice Arm
are being cleared by the Department of Public Works, so that the
grading can be done next spring
and sidewalks built. All brush
has been cut and burnt, and stumps
are now being removed and the
larger trees felled.
It is planned to complete work
on the new streets early next
spring, so that residents will not
be put to any inconvenience. A
number of houses have already
been moved from the streets on to
the owners' lots. There is, however, quite a number to be moved
before street work can be completed.
Fine Samples Of Ore
Brought From New
Mineral District
The mineral area of Alice Arm
is big, but it is steadily being enlarged, by prospectors who are
continually extending the boundaries. The latest extension is in
that large territory lying between
the Kitsault Valley and Hastings
Arm, and from all reports it is a
country well worth investigation.'
During the week, Jim Calvin
brought in some fine samples of ore
taken from veins located west of
Haystack mountain towards Hastings Arm. He has spent several
weeks prospecting in this new area,
and states that it is a new country
not yet prospected, but is full of
promise.
The samples he brought in were
from two distinct ore bodies, which
he located and staked. One bunch
of samples carry lead, zinc, copper
and silver, while the other is a grey
capper ore that is expected to carry
considerable silver values. He also
had a few samples of ore carrying
iron. It is similar ore as found at
Hastings Arm and it is possible
carries high gold values. The ores
were found in a groenstone formation, samples of which were also
brought in. Samples of the ores
will be sent out for assaying. The
width of the ore bodies was not
determined, as time did not permit
this work to be done.
Jim Calvin is a veteran prospector and next summer will spend
considerable time in this area. He
is a prospector that spends his
whole time in the hills, developing
his properties and searching for
new finds,
This year he spent a part of the
summer prospecting in the Smithers district and last year he
prospected many of the islands on
the coast and part of the mainland
with an open boat. He has visited
many mining camps, but is of the
opinion that Alice Arm is the best
of all, and plans to concentrate
his efforts here during the next few
years.
Mr. Evans Will Address
Radio Meeting
The Radio Club has been given
permission to use the Red Parrot
for its meetings which takes place
on the last Friday of each month.
At the last meeting the suggestion was made that a night class
in radio building might be worth
while. The prerequisite knowledge
is, however, a consideration. Besides, it was pointed out, sets can
be most conveniently obtained
complete.
At the next meeting Mr. D. T.
Evans will read a paper on Aerials,

E. MOSS, Editor and Publisher,
Thanks to the researches of Dr.
George Hanson of the Dominion
Geological Survey Department, we
now know how Alice Arm received
its name. How the word "Alice"
came to be given to the inlet
branching off from Observatory
Inlet has puzzled many northern
residents. The word seemed
meaningless, and nobody knew its
origin. As far as we knew it did
not signify anything or anyone who
had any connection with the district.
Now that we know it was named
after the first white woman resident
of the north, the name Alice Arm,
takes on a different aspect. It is a
name of which we may well be
proud. It is a lasting memorial to
that hardy pioneer lady Mrs. Alice
Tomlinson, who sixty years ago
was the only white woman in the
north—probably the only white
woman north of Victoria—who
stood by her husband and assisted
him in many womanly ways, in
teaching the savage natives of the
Naas River a purer religion, and
ministered to them in sickness and
distress. It is such self sacrificing
women as Mrs. Tomlinson, that in
days gone by, helped to lay the
solid foundations of this rich and
vast Dominion, and it is fitting
that they should be honored by
naming some place in their memory
as a lasting tribute to their pioneer
spirit.
Press reports of the past few
weeks have carried big front page
headlines informing us that the
farmers of the prairie provinces are
refusing to sell their wheat until
higher prices can be obtained.
They have ignored the law of
supply and demand, governing
foodstuffs that has been practiced
since civilization began. The farmers may benefit this year in holding
out for a higher price, but they are
treading on dangerous ground. If
they are successful they will give
encouragement along the same
lines to every other business, and
the public will have to pay.
Holding out for higher prices is
Mining Pure War Metal
In North France
When a geologist speaks of the
recent intrusion of an orebody, he
means a little affair of a thousand
million years. In northern France,
however, exploitation of what might
be called "disseminated" bodies of
"native" copper, lead, and iron,
which have been deposited within
the last fifteen years, is now under
way. These bodies are found over
a tremendous area and at a comparatively shallow depth. Production from one department last year
was about 1,000,000 lb. of copper
and lead. Further details, as reported by The Associated Press,
follow:
"Copper, lead, and iron, shot by
the cannon of all the armies, are1 t
gathered by a peace-time army of
5,000 men and women. Other
thousand* of boys and girls help
out family budgets with their daily
load of metal.
"For ten years this has been
going on and it probably will continue another five years. Every
time a field is ploughed or harrowed
more metal comes to the surface.
"The government, theoretically
owns all this, but contractors have
bought the right to it. There are
crews of expert workers who pass
from farm to farm, sometimes picking up the metal themselves and
sometimes buying the heap already
gathered by the farmer and his
family.
"The enormous quantity of cop
per, thousands'of tons, consists
mos.tly of empty cartridges, an evidence of the millions and millions
of shots fired by the armies that
fought over this ground for more
than four years."

all right until the other fellow follows suit. Suppose every other
industry followed the farmers' lead,
and held their products until higher
prices were obtained. It would
mean that living expenses would
jump, wages would rise in sympathy, and no one would benefit
in the end. Rising prices are
termed a vicious circle that revolves
round and round. High cost of
living means high wages and high
wages means high cost of living.

Can of Carbide Explodes In
Face of Stewart Miner
Stewart News
Nels Lyngheim, a miner employed at the Mountain Boy, is making
a satisfactory recovery from the
effects of a painful and what might
have been a very serious accident
at the Mountain Boy mine. Last
Saturday he had occasion to open a
carbide can and was greeted by an
explosion, having his face and
hands badly burned. He was rushed to the Stewart hospital and has
since been under the care of Dr.
VV. A. Whillans.
Will  Hudson Bay Railway
Be a Success
The Hudson Bay railroad has
reached the point where Hon.
Charles Dunning and party have
been able to travel over it from
Churchill to The Pas in 24 hours.
It will be ready for passenger traffic next summer.
That means that this "Northeast
Passage" is nearing its supreme
test. Another year should answer
the old, old question as to whether
the Bay will be a practical outlet
for the wheat of the prairie.
Everyone hopes that it will.
These hopes are strengthened by
the fact that those most intimately
connected with the building of the
road have grown more optimistic
as the work progressed.
Still everyone will await the supreme test with something akin to
bated breath.—Nelson News.

Oil Companies Favored By
Investing Canadians
Development of oil producing
companies is now proceeding in
Canada at a much more rapid rate
than in quite a number of years.
The public imagination has been
fired by the success attained by several enterprises, particularly in the
Turner Valley field. This interest
has been further accentuated by
the fact that, owing to the general
softness displayed by mining stocks,
funds which would have used to
further the development of mining
companies have been diverted to
the oil industry.

Winter Airplane Service
To Lonely North
To Canada's far northern outposts, Aklavik and Herschel Island,
once absolutely remote from communication of any kind during the
long white months of winter, airplanes, manned by aces of treacherous aerial trails, soon will be winging their way on regular schedule,
carrying to the trader, hunter and
trapper, mail and merchandise from
the "outside," and returning speedily with the products of the great
wilderness—furs for the world markets.
The planes will carry "His
Majesty's mails" to the bleak, lonely little trading posts between Edmonton and Aklavik and Herschel
Island on the extreme northwestern
coast of Canada, a distance of some
2000 miles. Radio, which came to
the posts of the traders, to the
camps of the hunter and trapper
but a short while ago, bringing
with it news of the outside world,
now will have as its auxiliary the
airplane in brushing away for ever
the loneliness which once descended
with the advent of winter.

Locomotive and Lumber
Drops Into River
What might have been a serious
accident occurred on Saturday
when the gasoline locomotive,
hauling two ears of lumber, owned
by the Britannia .Mining Co. plunged into the Kitsault river at the
entrance of Mud Creek canyon on
the Dolly Varden Railway.
The locomotive was manned by
J. Trinder and L. O'Connor, both
of whom managed to escape from
the cab before the engine struck
the water. It was a narrow escape,
especially for the former, who extricated himself none too soon.
The cause of the accident was
the collapse of a small bridge across
a creek. The engine had cleared
the bridge, but the lumber cars
were not so fortunate. They were
carried into the Kitsault river,
dragging the engine with them, a
distance of about 25 feet.
The work of hauling the outfit
back on to the track was undertaken by Al. Falooner during the
early part of the week, and the
engine is again in running order,

Trail Would Probably Help
New Area
That a rich mineral country lies
between the Kitsault Valley and
Hastings Arm has been proved.
Prospectors have made the trip
over to Hastings Arm on several
occasions, although no trail is
available. It would probably be
a good polioy if a trail was constructed at an early date, so that
prospectors could take in supplies
and thoroughly explore this mineral area-
