Tunnel on Sunrise Group
Is Now In Over
500 Feet
The big tunnel that is being
driven by the Kitsault Eagle Silver Mines Ltd. on tho Sunrise
Group on . McGrath mountain ia
now in a distance of 550 feet. The
tunnel will be driven 1000 feet,
and will tap ono of the ore bodies
of tho Sunrise at a depth of 500
feet below tho surface ontoroppings.
The other ore body will be tapped
at a greater depth. It is possible
that, the dip of the ore may change
below the surface, and if such is
the case the depth obtained may
vary somewhat either way from
that estimated.
During the driving of the tunnel
two ore bodies were encountered,
showing good mineralization. One
was at a distance of 150 feet from
tin' portal, and the other 400 feet.
Tho first is 5 feet wide and the
second nearly 6 feet.
Although the ore bodies of the
Sunrise have been classed as zinc,
the ore located underground carries
silver and lead in addition to zinc
values. Neither of the ore bodies
encountered showed on the surface.
It is expected that the first ore
body that is being driven for will
be encountered during the latter
part of this month. The tunnel
will then be continued until a distance of 1000 feet has been attained
and before this has been done it is
expected that the second ore body
will be located.
This tunnel is the first that has
attained any real depth on McGrath
mountain, and Its result is being
watched with keen interest.
Should success be attained it will
greatly expediate the development
of this section. Surface showings
on the mountain indicate the
presence of large ore bodies, that
have been favorably commented
upon by several mining engineers.
Two shifts are being worked in
the tunnel and good progress is
being maintained. Work is in
charge of A. MoGuire.

by the singing of God Save the
Annual Meeting Anyox
Community League
Creates Interest
The Annual Meeting of the Community League began on Wednesday night shortly after eight o'clock,
consumed most of the evening, and
now stands adjourned until March
20th. Meanwhile Chairman Macintyre is expected to prepare a report
"which will -be acceptable to the
meeting." Other members can
avail themselves of the breathing
space to draft motions, suggest
amendments to the constitution,
practice up on procedure, and learn
a few synonyms for the harsh words
that were freely bandied about.
The Chairman exercised his
oratory on such achievements of the
league as the lied Parrot and alterations to the seats in the movies,
and resumed his chair without alluding to the impending change in the
secretaryship of the League. A
motion was passed demanding the
omitted explanation. Still occupy
ing the chair, the President referred
to his published statement of a few
weeks ago but this only provoked
denunciation and an exchange ot
pleasantries among the members
Those who essayed to defend tth
president were not listened to and
finally the Chairman was pinned
down to the admission "that is all
the explanation I will give." A
motion to reject the Annual report
was then carried. This was argued
as a "no confidence" decision.
Nevertheless, the meeting proceeded
with the next item on the agendaJ
which was to elect unanimously
John McCallum to the hospital
Then the call was given for nominations for the new council. Fred
Brown and T. J. Kirkwood were
first to decline but T. Chambers
was urged to stand. Messrs. Bas-
sett and Clark raised no objection
but the next two nominated declined.
Upon being re-nominated Mr. Macintyre said that he would give the
voters a chance to register their
opinion of his actions in the ballot-
box. After a long list of "I declines"
the nominations were closed. The
members will choose eight from
Messrs. Chambers, Bassett, For-
dyce Clark, O. G. Macintyre, J.
Murdoch, H. Gourlay, S. B. Roberts
R. Gale, G. A. Edgecombe, and J,
Not forgetting the efforts of the
councillors during the past year,
the meeting voted appreciation of
their work and confidence in Mr.
Kelley. There was another motion
aimed at some evilly-disposed "person or persons unknown" but no
action was taken thereon.
There was a lively exchange over
the auditing of the books by J. L.
Stewart. A long debate on the
question of adjournment concluded
the proceedings. Some professors
of parliamentary procedure claim
that the whole thing has to be done
over again. ,
Badminton Tournament
Great Success
The badminton tournament on
Tuesday attracted most of the members of the club and interested a
large number in the spectator's
gallery. The contestants were
divided into two groups, the teams
being drawn by lottery and handicaps given. In group One Miss
Richards and Mr. Brett went
through the evening without losing
a game, Mrs. Roy and Mr. Bartman
being second with only four points
less. In the other division, Mrs.
Macintyre and Mr. Cloke were undefeated. Miss Dunwoodie and
Mr. G. Macintyre equalled with tbe
addition of their handicap of 14,
the winners' score of ninety. Mrs.
Cutler and Mr. Clark were second
with 78 earned points.
The ladies of the executive arranged an attractive supper at which
prizes were presented to Miss Richards, Miss Dunwoodie, Mr. Brett
and Mr. Cloke.

Red Bluff Group To Be
Developed Early This
The Red Bluff Group will be developed this year. A syndicate has
been formed for this purpose, by
J. N. McPhee, ownerof the property
and work is expected to start early
this spring. Operations will be in
charge of Mr. McPhee, who will
arrive in Alice Arm shortly after
April 1st.
The capital of the syndicate is
limited to $100,000 and is divided
into 10,000 units of a par value of
$10.00 each. This stock is now on
the market and is finding a ready-
The Red Bluff Group consists of
five claims and is located about 7
miles north-east from the head of
Alice Arm. It is situated on Red
Bluff mountain, and the whole district is well mineralized. Reports
have been made on the property by
geologists and mining engineers,
all of whom have recommended
development work to be done. Following are extracts from a report
made by R. G. McConnell of the
Dominion Department of Mines
who made an examination of the
property some years ago:
"The mineralized area is very-
large, fully a thousand feet in width,
and traceable for a long distance up
the steep slopes of the mountain.
The rocks are fractured and the
pyrite oxidized to a greater depth
than usual, and no large mass of
sulphides is exposed on the surface.
Copper carbonates in small quantities occur at a number of points,
and a specimen consisting mostly
of white pyrite in a siliceous gangue
contained small specks of bornite.
Some pyrargyrite in small grains
was also found with pyrite in one
exposure. This mineral does not
occur, or at least has not been found,
in the other large iron croppings of
the district. A crust deposited by
a spring bubbling up near the centre
of the deposit was determined by
Mr. R. A. A. Johnston as allophane,
a hydrous silicate of aluminum.
"The economic importance of
this large pyritized area is uncertain.
It contains some copper, and while
the amount of surface work which
has been done has not exposed it
in commercial quantities, the prospects certainly warrant further exploration. The presence of the rich
silver mineral pyrargyrite, even in
small quantities, is important."
Reports on the property have
also been made by Geo. E. Clothier
former resident mining engineer.
Last year, at the request of Mr.
McPhee, John E. Stark of Alice
Arm also made a report, both of
which have been published with
Mr. McConnell's report.
Owing to its close proximity to
tidewater, the Red Bluff can be developed much more cheaply than if
farther inland. Transportation

People are apt to take their
newspaper as a matter of course.
Rarely do they appreciate the large
investments that must continually
be made in building up a larger
and more valuable paper for them
to readv investments that often
bring no immediate return; investments that often benefit a newspaper only indirectly because of
some immediate benefit to the field
served by the paper. Many industries have gained in prosperity
from the work of the well edited
business newspapers serving them;
similarly many communities have
become prosperous due to the good
work of their newspapers.—The
Financial Post, Toronto.
There is a fable which says:
"In the days succeeding the Centaur, when horses, mules and asses
were the propelling power of
vehicles to transport humans, gates
were used to stop travelers on the
highways when a railroad train approached. The horses, mules and
asses, seeing the gate across the
road, stopped and let the train go
by in; safety to themselves.
"In the progress of mankind
motor vehicles were produced, and
then the ass, instead of drawing the
buggy climbed into the front seat
apd became the driver of the flivver.
Since that time he has actually been
unable to see a gate at a railroad
^ crossing, and if he does occasionally
glimpse it, his delight is to run it
down'in trying to beat the train
across the track.

place."—The Leaser, New Denver

of certain investigations carried on
in British Columbia and Yukon in
1927 has been published.
Dezadeash Lake area, southern
Yukon, silver-lead deposits of Fif-
teenmile creek and Rude creek,
Yukon, and Puelbo, Tamarack-
Carlisle and War Eagle-LeRoi properties, Whitehorse copper belt,

report on the Finlay River district,
British Columbia, includes a description of the lead-zinc-silver
deposit on Ingenika river. 16 miles. «
west of its junction with the Fin-
lay. According to Dr. Dolmage a
large number of samples have been
taken from the deposit, all of which
have yeilded surprisingly uniform
values. He states that the average
of four sets of samples each taken
by a different engineerjs as follows:
silver, 7.51 ounces to the ton; lead,
17.81 per cent.; zinc, 6.80 per cent.
Reference is also made to the fact
that this ore is specially amenable
to concentration processes.

Copper Production Last
Year Shows Increase
The production of refined oopper
in North and South America in
1928 was 1,627,849 tons, compared
with 1,477,322 tons in 1927, representing an increase of 10 ,per cent.
Data have been received from nearly all of the remaining countries of
the world from which the A. B. M.
S. reckons the production of refined
copper in the world in 1928 as
1,954,021 tons, compared with
1.755,068 tons in 1927, an increase
of about 11 per cent. In 1927 the
refineries in North and South America produced about 84 per cent of
the world's total; in 1928 this proportion was reduced to about 83
per cent. '   -
The large increase in the production in Europe was asoribable to the
operation of the new refinery at
Oolen, in Belgium.

Demand For 18c. Copper Little Quiet
Engineering and Mining Journal
Sales of copper on domestic
.account during the last week have
been very light. A large proportion of the business was consumated
early in the week and immediately
following the definite establishment
of the price at 18c. per pound delivered Connecticut Valley basis. May
delivery has been specified on most
transactions, though several carload lots for February, March and
April delivery have been contracted for. Offerings of Juno copper
have completely disappeared.
Foreign business has been excellent lip until tho last few days.
Sales on foreign account for the
month to 'date total approximately 36,000 long tons. Inrtlie
opinion of some sellers the recent
contraction in demand has indioat-
~™Tl that European buyers looked
1'or the release of utffavorable January statistics, and expected a recession iu prices to follow. The A.
B. M. S. January statistics are far
from unfavorable, however, indicat
ing combined foreign and domestic
shipments in excess of 157,000 tons,
approximately 2,000 tons greater
than production. Copper Exporters, Inc., advanced its c. i. f. price
$,o 18c. Feb. 7, and to 18ic per
pound Feb. 8.
Inquiries during the past week
havo been considerably better than
sales and large increase in sales and
tonnage will probably be registered
as soon as the sellers are able to
open their books for June delivery.
It's a good underwriter who cannot be overestimated.

give you a square deal.

fact that shares can be procured at

principally coal and steel, but in-
eluding 3(5 lengths of 8-inch wood
en pipe, have been packed to the
Silverado this week by the Crawford Transfer Co., the last load be-
ing taken up today. The pipe is to
be used for air pipe in the tunnel,
so far as permanent pipe may be
put in. The string of pack-horses
working their way up the mountain above Stewart have created
considerable interest to people on
the streets. Most winters it would
have been impossible to deliver this
order, but so far this winter has| |
been an exception.
