Large Ore Body   On
Tyee and Highland
The Tyee and Highland groups
of mineral claims are the two outstanding properties in the Alioe
Ann district this year, that have
been successfully developed by tlieir
original owners. The Tyee and
Highland are owned by Archie
MoPhail, who has done considerable
development work, with exceptionally good results.
An ore body has been traced on
the surface by open cuts a distance
of 1500 feet. Five open cuts were
driven and each one showed the
ore to be of the same massive
character. It is composed of solid
silver-lead and samples have assayed as high as 51 per cent. lead.
98.7 silver, 1^ per cent, copper, and
a trace of gold Close prospecting,
and the blasting of a hole at varying distances shows that the ore
ledge extends a distance of five
claim lengths, extending on to the
Summit Group, owned by A.
The first open cut showed the
ore to be 4 feet wide. As the open
cuts were extended up the hill, the
ledge widened considerably, but
time did not permit the upper cuts
being driven the full width of the
ledge. Sufficient surface work has
been done, however, to show that
the Tyee and Highland contain an
extremely large body of ore, of a
good grade, and it is not expected
these properties will be allowed to
lie idle very long by mining companies. Several engineers have
already made preliminary examinations, and were satisfied with the
great possibilities.
The Tyee and Highland are in
the heart of what is known as the
Upper Kitsault silver belt Bach
property is composed of 6 claims
and is owned by Archie McPhail
of Alice Arm. The Highland joins
the Chance and the Tyee joins the
Highland. The Chance is owned
jointly by A. McPhail aud P. Morley and is also composed of 6 claims,
which gives 18 claims in one solid
block. The large ore showings on
the Chance are too well known for
us to again publish details.

Good Time Prevails At
Hard Times Dance
Alice Arm
The Hard Times Dance given on
Saturday by the Alice Arm Athletic Association, was one of the
happiest social events held for a
long time. Almost everyone in
town was present and several weekend visitors from the Toric mine
also attended.
The spacious floor of T. W.
Falconer's hall provided ample
elbow room for the dancers, who
made full use of the opportunity.
The enlivening music of the
Alice Arm Orchestra, resulted in
almost a hundred per cent, vacant
chairs when the music commenced,
and when it stopped everyone was
ready for more.
The affair was a financial success.
This was due to a large extent to
J. Trinder. He was proclaimed
by the Athletic Association as the
''finest" man in the hall. He fined
everyone including himself, and
collected a fine little sum of money,
which is a tine thing for the Association and a fine thing for the
dancers. In fact it was a fine
night all round excepting the
weather. i,t
The lucky ticket of the evening
was held by L. O'Connor, who collected a large box of candies donated by Mrs. H. F. Kergin.
League Entertains 150
Children Hallowe'en
The Hallowe'en party arranged
by the Anyox Community League
afforded an evening's enjoyment to
over one hundred and fifty children,
of whom more than one hundred
appeared in costume.
Much difficulty was experienced
in deciding the best costumes
among scores of excellent creations.
The final selection favored the following: Best Dressed, Helen Simpson as "Turkish Princess;" Dick
Wynne as "Irish Gentleman."
Best Sustained, Jean Munro and
Donald Gillies as Old-fashioned
school boy and girl. Best Comic,
Wesley Wenerstrom as "Irish Dandy," and Irene Blackburn as "English Flower Girl." Many adults
gave willingly of their time in preparing for the event and in organizing the activities of the evening.
Games delighted many participants and onlookers and brought
prizes to the successful. A plentiful supper was arranged for the
children with a spread for the elders
later on. The decorations remaining
from the Hospital Auxiliary dance
lent an attractive seasonal color
Reports from tlie Esperanza
mine state that high grade silver
ore has been encountered in one of
the tunnels. The vein is about 2
feet wide.
Britannia Co. Exercises
Option On Toric
Advices from the south received
during the week state that the
Toric Mines Company Limited
have received a notification from
the Britannia Mining & Smelting
Company Limited to the effect
that the latter intend exercising
the option they have under the
bonding agreement between the
two companies', and that a new
company will be formed inimedi-
itely to take over the Toric property to be managed and controlled
by the Britannia Mining Company
with the option of the latter of
buying the shares given to the
Toric share holders in the new
company under the terms of the
The above welcome news indicates that development work done
at the Toric mine during the past
summer by the Britannia Co. has
been satisfactory. If development
work carried out during the coming winter proves equally satisfactory, the Britannia Co. will undoubtedly considerably expand operations next summer.

E, MOSS, Editor and Publisher,
Recent European developments
in the marketing branch of the
metal industry have been none too
pleasing. In general, they emphasize the fact that the prosperity of
Europe is of very real importance
to the metal-mining industry, and
that such subjects as debts, tariffs,
and stable governments are of more
real importance than many realize
as they hurriedly glance at the newspaper headlines.
European consumption of copper
so far this year has been disappointing. The total taken by the four
leading copper-importing countries
—in order, Germany, France, Great
Britain, and Italy—increased markedly in both 1927 and 1928, but so
far in 1929 has averaged slightly
below the 1928 standard. Germany
and Italy have reduced their takings
this year by about ten per cent.
Were it not for the fact that United
States consumption this year showed
another big expansion, and for the
further fact that production has
been curtailed in the last half of the
year, the market price would certainly have been well below its
present level. As it is, United
States producers are hoping that
domestic consumption will not be
affected seriously by any real or
fancied industrial depression; that
European demand will again show
its former rate of growth; and that
African production of copper will
not expand too rapidly. All of
these hopes may very well be realized, so that producers should not be
too pessimistic about the future
price. Fortunately, the price is
stable throughout the world.—Engineering and Mining Journal.
Production of Silver Drops
Silver production in tbe United
States in September amounted to
-1,172,000 oz., against 5.006,009oz.
in August and 4,087,000 oz. in
August of last year, according to
the American Bureau of Metal Statistics. Production in Canada in
September totaled 2,081,000 oz.
which compares with 2,744,000 oz.
in the preceding month.
World production of silver in July
the latest month for which figures
for all countries are available, was
22,057,000 oz. This compares with
an output of 18,457,000 oz. in July,

Stewart  Turns  Down
Stewart News
Saturday evening last concluded
a whirlwind campaign of a week's
duration on the question of incorporating Stewart under the Village
Municipalities Act. The question
was defeated by a vote of 54 to 51,
Following the poll a number of
the largest taxpayers, several of
whom had not been allowed to vote
owing to their names not being
posted on the voters' list for the
requisite seven days, met and discussed every angle of the situation.
The outcome of this was that case
after case was produced where people who were registered owners of
property, and who had paid more
than the required two dollars in'
taxes thereon, were not allowed to
vote because for some reason not
known locally their names had not
been included on the seven-day
posted list of voters. It was also
disclosed at this meeting that early
in the week it was realized the list
sent in and posted was not a true
list, as it included many names of
those not entitled to vote. As a result, a great injustice was done
many taxpayers, and no true expression of opinion could result
from the Saturday polling. _
New C. N. Steamships
Will Be Speedy
The first of the new de luxe
passenger boats now being constructed in England forthe Canadian
National Steamships will go into
service on the Vancouver-Prince
Rupert-Alaska run from Vancouver
on July 3 next, according to the
1930 Alaska schedule issued by G.
MacNicholl, general passenger
agent of the Canadian National
Railways, Vancouver. As far as
is known, the boat to be used in
this service will be the Prince Henry.
The addition of this new boat to
this service will give the Canadian
National Steamships 20 sailings
from Vancouver to Alaska next
vear, as compared with 13 this year,
and sufficient business is already in
sight to indicate to the officals of
the company that the additional
service will be more than warranted.
An indication that the new steamships will be very speedy is to be
had in the new schedule calls for
the Prince Henry to make the round
trip between Vancouver and Skagway in seven days, as compared
with nine days under which the
Prince George and Prince Rupert
have been operating in the past and
will continue to operate next summer.

Less Canadians  Going
To U. S. A.
The number of Canadians who
emigrate to the United States continues to decrease. This is shown
by figures issued by the bureau of
immigration at Washington for the
period between Jan. 1 and June 30,
1929. During the period 29,447
immigrants entered from Canada,
while during the fiscal year ending
on the same date, the influx of
Canadians totalled 64,444. During
the year 1928, Canadian figures
were 73,156.
An analysis of the department indicates a steady decline in the number of native born Canadians entering the United States. Figures are
based on the non-quota visas which
native Canadians must obtain for
Expansion of Nickel Industry

As a result of the heavy and continuous influx of labor caused by
the expansion of the nickel industry, in addition to a general revival
of mining activity in various parts

than 8,000 people to a population
of approximately 18,000 within the
last two years, according to figures
just made public by the town assessor.

Stock Agents Charged
With Fraud
In the process of making war
on fraudulent stock operations, the
Vancouver police placed in arrest
John MacLean, described as a financial agent, and Franklin Jako, engineer. Charges preferred against

In connection with "Fire Prevention Week", observed throughout
Canada and the United States between October G and October 13, a
special telegraphic message has
been sent over the entire Canadian
Pacific Railway system by Grant
Hall, senior vice-president of the

employees of the railway to cooperate by setting a good example
of fires and the removal of their
causes. This has been followed up
by a circular letter setting forth in
detail Row these objects may be accomplished.

During the last few months, coal
mining operations in one of the

uncovered large footprints of birds,
or bird-like animals that lived many
millions of years ago. Some years

History was made in Canada
when Chief Bimbatow Wahwash-
kaiche (Running Deer), of the
Ojibways, met and greeted in all
friendliness Chief Oscanonto (Deer)
of the Iroquois, at Caughnawaga
Indian Reserve, near Montreal, recently. There is no record of these
triles ever hiwlng met before in
Canadian history. The Ojibway
Chief is better known as Paul Cameron, head Indian guide for the
past thirty years at Nipigon Camp,
northern Ontario. Neither could
speak a word of the ether's language and conversed through the
medium of English.
Judges of the annual fishing contests held at. French River, Nipigon and Devil's Gap (Lake of the
Woods) bungalow camps, have announced the winners as follows: —
W. H. Graf, of New York, and Frank
S. Slosson. of Chicago, tied for the
trophy at French River with a 30-
lb. muscal'onge each; J. H. Lunn ol
Hammond, Ind., 'won the Nipigon
trophy with a 7%-lb. speckled
trout, closely followed by Mrs
Bpndy, of Kansas City, with a 7-
pounder; and A. R. Joslin, Jr., ol
Cincinnati, took the Devil's Gap
trophy with a bass weighing 3
pounds, nine ounces.
"Tlie destinies of Canada and
Japan lie together in the great Pacific Ocean," declared Hon. Iye-
masa Tokugawa, K.C.V.O., first
minister to represent the Emperor
of Japan, when he reached Dominion soil here with the arrival of the
Canadian Pacific liner Empress of
France, at Vancouver recently. He
was accompanied hy Togo Fukuma,
Japanese Consul-General, both of
them being on their way to Ottawa
where the former later delivered
his credentials.
What is regarded as a record
movement was made recently at the
Saskatchewan Wheat Pool Elevator
No. 7 at Port Arthur, when in 4V£
hours, 550,000 bushels of wheat
were transferred from the elevator
to the hold of the steamship Le-
moyne. There were periods during the loading of the ship when
the wheat was carried like a torrential golden river from the elevator at the rate of 2,666% bushels
per minute.
Fifty different steamship lines
now serve to carry Canadian products to every continent from the
port of Vancouver, states a recent
trade review issued by the Royal
Bank of Canada. The review adds
that in a period when the other
great ports have had difficulty in
maintaining their pre-war volume
of trade, traffic through the port
of Vancouver has experienced
steady growth. From 132 oceangoing ships in 1913, the number increased to 1,344 in 1928. During
the past, year total trade of the port
had a value of $200,000,000.
The largest, sugar beet crop on
record in Southern Alberta is being
harvested in the Raymond district,
centre of the industry. About 8,500
acres were sown to sugar beets
this year, 2,000 more than in 1928,
and the crop will on estimate yield
about 65.000 tons or 28,000 above
last year's production.

W. J. Duke, who has been on
the working staff at the Esperanza
mine for a considerable time, left
on Tuesday for Anyox.
E. C. Pickott, who lias been in
charge of development work at the
Tiger during the summer, left on
Monday for California. He was
accompanied by Mrs. Pickett.
W. S. Livingstone, of New York,
who made an examination of the
Tiger mine, left on Monday after
spending several days on the property.
J. N. McPhee returned on Monday from a visit to Prince Rupert,
Vancouver and Victoria, in connection with business of the Red
Bluff Mining Syndicate.
The first snowfall of the season
occurred on Wednesday, when
about two inches fell. It was followed by heavy rains that converted the streets into slush.
Mr. W. C. Grover, travelling
representative of the Family Beneficiary Society, whose head office
is Vancouver, is in Anyox calling
on the old members of the Society
as well as prospective ones. 'The
Family Beneficiary Society is becoming more favorably known
throughout the province every
day" he said. "It is leading all
other societies of its kind in this
respect. At Revelstoke last month
one of our members, a young man,
was accidently killed a short distance from there, leaving a young
widow and four little children.
Within five days of his death the
widowed mother received the So
ciety's check in full. The 'Revelstoke Review' commented on the
remarkable promptness with which
this claim was paid." A membership in the Society is advisable,
and it may be worth $2500 to you.
Mr. Grover has visited Stewart
and Alice Arm, where he transacted considerable business. He is
now stopping at the Anyox Hotel,
and will remain in town Severn'
From time to time the question
"ifis asked: "What is a Canadian?"
There is an agitation for provision
in the census defining Canadians
and it is likely this will be done in
the next census two years hence.
As a matter of fact, a Canadian
is clearly described in the Immigra
tion Act as follows:
(i) A person born in Canada who
has not become an alien: (ii) a British subject who has Canadian domicile; or (iii) a person naturalized
under the laws of Canada, who has
not subsequently become an alien
or lost Canadian domicile."
This would appear to meet the
case adequately.
