War on Forest Fires
Anyox  Members  Ask
Support of Legion
One of the main objects of the
Canadian Legion of the B. E. S. L.,
is to uphold the rights of all ex-
service men, whether members of
the organization or uot and to see
that the obligations of the Government to them are properly discharged. For this purpose the
Legion maintains a'Service Bifreau
at Ottawa, which carefully watches
all Legislation relating to ex-service
men, and also handles a very large
number of individuakcases of appeals against Pension awards, aud
other matters needing redress.
There is some disposition now to
try to get away from obligations
to ex-servioe men and the only
hope of offsetting this is by vigorous and united effort on the part
of ex-service men themselves. For
this reason, if for no other, all ex-
service men are asked to support
the Legion, and anyone who has
complaint to make against the
handling of his case, whether in re
gard to a pension or any other
matter, is invited to lay his case
before the local branch of the
Legion, who will do everything
possible towards getting a satisfactory adjustment. "
Hon. Charles Stewart
Minister of the Interior, whose
department, in co-operation with
Provincial Governments, various
Forestry Associations and public-
spirited citizens, is this week conducting a campaign to focus public
attention on the need of pi evention
of forest fires.
Address Given League
of Nations
On Friday, April 20th. the activities of the League of Nations were
presented to the citizens in an address by Rev. C. D. Clarke. Emphasis was laid upon the success
with which the League council has
smoothed over episodes as threatening as that which provoked the War
of 1914-18. Dr. D. R. Learoyd as
Chairman spoke of the concert of
nations in the New World. Literature was distributed to those present and membership lists were
circulated, a fair number signing
on as members of the Society.
The Anyox Orchestra played some
stirring airs, and R. Bennett made
an excellent impression in his first
public appearance in Anyox as a
Dr. H. T. James Visits Alice
Ann Mines
Dr. H. T. James, resident mining
engineer, arrived at Alice Arm on

Silver Cord.
While here he also examined the
Esperanza and Wolf Mines, and
left for the south on Thursday.
H. C. Fraser Addresses
Anyox P. T. A.
Nearly fifty residents enjoyed the
address delivered by Mr. H. C.
Fraser, M. A., Inspector of Schools,
to the P. T. A. and friends on Wednesday night. The Inspector
charmed his audience with a clear
evaluation of the Dalton plan of
instruction, illustrating the difficulties attached to its operation in the
provincial system. He touched upon the significance of the standardised tests which are employed in
this inspectorate. In closing, he
reminded his hearers that, while
methods of instruction must necessarily receive attention and undergo
modification, the question of vital
importance is that of the curriculum

Well   Pleased   Silver
Cord Development
i -...-.,   ■-   —*—
Mr. W. G. McMorris, President
of the Kitsault-Eagle Silver Mines
Ltd., who are developing the Silver Cord, left on Thursday for the
south, after spending 10 days at
the property.
Before his departure, Mr. Mc>
Morris stated that the tonnage of
ore developed during the past win
ter was fully up to his expectations. A vertical depth of 360 feet
had been obtained on the ore body
and the width was as yet undetermined. As soon as snow was off
the ground, mining equipment and
supplies would be taken iu aud the
working force considerably increased.
It is the intention of the company
to instal a compressor plant as
early in the summer as possible,
and present plans call for a further
3000 feet of tunnel work.
The present trail to the property will be improved by the government so that the necessary
machinery can be taken in this
Bright Future Assured
Asserts Visitor
No one holding property in Alice
Arm, has any cause to worry about
the future of the camp. This was
the statement made by Mr. W. G.
McMorris of Vancouver, while in
town last week. He stated that
negotiations are now well advanced,
which if materialize, will put Alice
Arm among the busiest mining
camps of the province. He himself
has great faith in the camp and he
expected a big expansion of the
mining industry here within a reas>
onable time.

G. W. Bruggy Reviews
Northern Mining
Geo. W. Bruggy, who has spent
the past five months in Vancouver,
returned to Alice Arm on Thursday.
On his arrival he stated that Alice
Arm was receiving considerable
more attention in mining circles in
the south than formerly, and judging from present indications the
mining industry of the district was
on the eve of a big expansion.
Mr. Bruggy, who is a director of
the Marmot Metals Mining Co.,
attended the annual general meeting held in Vancouver on April 18th.
when a new Board of Directors
were elected, which are as follows:
Dr. R. E. McKechnie, Nicol
Thompson, George Markle of Vancouver, and H. W. M. Rolston, H.
C. Magee of Stewart, and G. W.
Bruggy, Alice Arm.
The above board of Directors
include some of the most prominent
business men of Vancouver. Mr.
Nicol Thompson, is an ex-President
of the Vancouver Board of Trade;
Mr. George Markle is one of the
leading importers and exporters of
Vancouver, while Dr. McKechnie
does not need an introduction to the
public, being well known throughout the province.
A meeting of the new Board of
Directors was held this week.
The financial report of the company showed that cash in hand for
expenditure on development work
during this year is $58,000. It is
the intention of the company to
employ a mining engineer and
mineralogist to thoroughly examine
their holdings on the Marmot River,
before any large expenditures are
made, so that the best results can
be obtained.
The big ore showings on the
Horseshoe claim will probably be
diamond drilled this year.
In regard to the Beach Molybdenum, which is situated about three
miles down the inlet from Alice
Arm, and in which Mr. Bruggy
holds a half interest, he stated that
negotiations were being carried on
with English capitalists, with a
view to having them send engineers
to examine the property, and it was
expected that this would be done
very shortly.

Of all the "Weeks" in our Canadian Calendar, that are set apart
for special observances, there is no
single one so worthy of thoughtful
consideration as "Canadian Forest
Week". The very fact that it
alone is solemnly proclaimed annually by the Governor General of
the Dominion, demonstrates its
supreme importance.
It is a melancholy reflection that
a "Royal Edict" of this description
should be deemed necessary to
warn a level-headed and progressive people not to destroy one of
their most priceless national possessions and one that brings them fame
abroad and prosperity at home.
Yet so it is.! Viscount Willingdon
will not set his hand this year to a
document urging all Canadians not
to set ablaze their dwellings and
their places of business. Why
should it be necessary for him over
and over again to beg and pray
the people of British Columbia to
concentrate on preserving from fire
the most important factor in keeping those homes and factories in
Industry takes a heavy toll yearly of our forests. The mighty trees
fill beneath the axe, but industry
affords employment to many thousands, and huge revenues to the
country's Government. Our forest
products shipped abroad constitute
a far more valuable type of advertisement than all the organized publicity mongering possible.
Yet the axe and saw plying continuously through the logging
season may not destroy as much
timber as a match dropped by a
careless tourist, or a camp fire left
unextinguished by a negligent
Over 80 per cent, of the outbreaks in B. C. forests are due to
human agencies, and by far the
greatest and most deadly blazes
have been traced without a shadow
of a doubt to the very class of
person in whom every instinct of
patriotism, sportsmanship, and right
feeling should be uppermost when
the preservation of our forests are
concerned. For the forests offer
every kind of delight to those that
visit them for sport and recreation,
and it is a terrible indictment of
Present Tonnage And
Value Premier Ore
During 1927, 242,172 tons with
an average assay content per ton
of 0.49 ounces gold and 13.96
ounces silver were mined at the
Premier Mine at Stewart, and at
the end of 1927 the combined
broken and unbroken ore reserves
of the Premier mine were 163,732
tons less than at the end of 1926,
This means that only a very moderate tonnage, namely 80,440 tons
of new ore was found and opened
up during 1927. The reason for
this failure to find and open up
substantial tonnages of new ore is,
as was emphasized in the annual
report for 1926, that the 5th. level
appears to be definitely below the
horizon of profitable values.
The total of the above estimates
of broken and ore reserves, down
to the 5th. level of the present
mine workings is 634,537 tons, averaging 0.43 ounces of gold and
8.49 ounces silver. With gold at
$20 per ounce and silver at 50 cents
per ounce, this represents a gross
value of $13.35 per ton.
"Canada does not want to enter
into any Pan-American conference
in substitution for the splendid association of British commonwealths," declared Sir James Aik-
ins, former Lieut.-Govenor of Manitoba, in an address before the
Young Men's Canadian Club.
Referring to Canada's international problems, Sir James said the
greatest danger in Canada was not
from demagogues, propagandists,
bandits or bolsheviats but from the
apathy and indifference in respect
to the proper exercise of citizen's

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 yearc

Lode mining has only been in progress for about 25 years, and only about one-half of the Provinoe has
been even prospected; 200,000 square miles of unexplored mineral bearing land are open for prospeoting.
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 whioh development work has been done
are described in some one of the Annual Reports of the Minister of Mines. Those considering
mining investments should refer to such reports. They are available without oharge on application
to the Department of Mines, Victoria, B. C. . Reports covering eaoh of the six mineral Survey
Districts are published separately, and are available on application. Reports of the Geological

400  Tons  Casing  To   Be
Pulled From Drill Hole
The work of pulling 400 tons of
casing from the British Dominion
well in Alberta is now  proceeding.
The directors of the company decided not to drill further but to
move the rig to a lease,  which it
had secured from the McDougall
Segur Exploration Co. Ltd.
British Dominion No. 1 is Canada's deepest well, having gone
down 6600 feet with the 6-inch
casing run nearly to the bottom.
The continuation of this well to
greater depths would be very costly, with no certainty of production
and the directors considered it
would be in the best interests of
the shareholders to drill a well on
proven property, sufficient funds
having been kept intact for this
