Mr. 0. Oray, arrived back   in
I Alioe Arm on Thursday from an
jxtended visit to Seattle. Mr. Gray
Was successful in forming the Key\
itone Mining Company while in
Seattle. This company is
composed of influential business

I of improving the camp and preparing for underground work.
Mr. Thorley, mining engineer,
[who visited the property last fall

I to the surface showings at a considerable depth. The Sunset group
bonsists of nine, claims, and is situated on Boundy Creek a short distance down the inlet. The property is only lj miles from tide water
md has an elevation of 2300 feet.
t Mr. Geo. Clothier, in his Report
:o the Minister of Mines last year
says: ^ , §
"The showings apparently lie in
jneissoid granite, a belt about 50
I'eet wide lying between the Coast
■Range granodiorite on the. south
[ride and argillite on the north side,
[striking N. 45 degrees W, (mag.)
■This belt shows a schistose atruct-
lure on both walls, but is apparent-
lly more irregular and brokpn up iu
■the central portion,   Within this
[width are  lenses of  mineralized
quartz  and quartz and feldspar,
and further development is showing
quartz   veins outtihg diagonally
across from wiill to wall, or from
argillite to granite.    Some very
promising seams and lenses, well
mineralized   with   galena,   zinc-
blend, and pyrite, assaying up to
(over 100 oz. hi silver to the ton
have been exposed."'

[Mrs. P. Nordi, Alice Arm.,
Loggiiig operations at the camp
of the Abbotsford Logging Co. will
be considerably speeded up in the
near future. A five-drum yarding
engine is now on the way from
Ocean Falls, and the high lead system of hauling the logs from the
woods will be instituted about the
25th. of the month.
• When the new engine is in operation, One will be used for pulling,
the logs to the landing stage on the
railway track, and the other will
pull logs to the Illiance River.
These logs will be dumped into the
river and driven to the booming
grounds on the flats at the high
water periods in the fall. An in
dependent engine will be used for
loading logs on the railway cars.
Mr. Erio Carlson, who arrived last
Monday will shortly take over all
logging operations on a contract
basis, he is a practical man having
taken logging contracts from Mr.
J. 0. Trethewey at Abbotsford prior
to coming north.
Fifty men are now employed at
the camp, and this force will be increased as soon as the new engine,

H. F. Kergin Back
From Northern Visit
Mr. H. F. Kergin M. L. A.. returned on Monday from a trip
through a part of the northern
portion of bis 1 constituency.!
During the trip he went as far as
Porter's Landing at the head of
Pease Lake,. and visited > every
settlement between the mouth of
the Stikine River and Porter's
Landing. Mr. Kergin states that
placer mining is active jn the district, but large operations are
handicapped through lack of
transportation. The Telegraph
Creek country possess large tracts
of agricultural land, whioh will
undoubtedly be developed as soon
as transportation is provided.
Mr. Kergin states that a wagon
road/is now being built between
Telegraph Creek and Dease Lake,
and it is expected that the road
will be ready for motor traffic next
year, to the head of Dease Lake, a
distance of 75 miles. iBBfl

Victoria, July 3rd.—Officials of the
department of labor in their annual
report, show that in 1922 there were
only a dozen disputes involving a
stoppage in work and that comparatively little time was lost diving the

labor bureau are working overtime
endeavoring to supply the needs of
employers and a better feeling is now

Swat the Fly.
Now is the time to swat the fly.
However, there is more than one
way of doing it. The use of the
swatter is one; fly paper is another;
and fly traps still another. But the
best way to swat the fly is to eliminate the sources of the trouble to
get rid of the fly's breeding places.
To kill the fly with the swatter
is work well done; but to stop the
breeding of millions is a service to
the community. If Mrs. Fly can't
find her favorite open garbage pail
in which to lay her eggs, her posterity is doomed.
Keep your garbage cans clean
and keep them covered, and see
that all refuse either goes into the
stove or into the garbage cans,
where the flies can not touch it.
It has been proved that flies are the
carriers of numerous diseases*
including tuberculosis. To eliminate the deadly fly, destroy their
favorite breeding grounds.
Propaganda Galore.
About three-fourths of the newspaper man's mail has grown to be
propaganda of various sorts. The
Herald this week received enough
material in the free publicity to entirely fill the paper, without the use
of any provincial, local, social news,
humor or editorial material. It
would be a soft snap for thereport-
orial and editiorial forces to utilize
off this free material, and a unique
paper could be produced-but one
that would hardly meet the warm
approval of any of the Herald
readers except the propagandists

Big Chilean Copper Shipment
Shipment of copper bars from the'
Antofagasta district of Chile in 1922,
amounted to 73,532 metric tons, and
is thought to be the largest in history
ofthe industry. Stocks carried over
from 1921 were materially reduced,
the bulk of the shipments going to the
United1 States, although large quantities also went to Germany and other
European countries. Exports of copper ores amonnted to 33,363 metric
tons in 1922, compared with ,30,031
tons in 1921. This ore was exported
principally to the west coast of the
United States for smelting. Largest
producer of refined copper, an American company, worked regularly during 1922, and has recently increased
production to full capacity, but the
small smelters have 'remained idle
during the past year.
.      Copper Market Quiet
Copper sales, foreign and domestic,
are quiet. Producers' prices are firm,
with moderate amount of second-hand
copper coming on the market at
slightly under producers' prices.
Aside ship demand is small, owing to
meagerness of foreign demand which
is awaiting greater assurance as to
trend of prices in the American market, and greater assurance that stocks
of refined copper are still decreasing.
Foreign sales last week while small
for different days added up to a fair
total, with Copper Association' s Sale
of 4,000,000 pounds to a foreign government the largest export sale made

A Feller Ought to Fish
I just stay here a-working,

Of the sunshine that's a-gleaming

For if the Lord made fishing,
Why—a feller ought to fish.

In Atiyjjx smoky town,

An amendant to the Game Act

Every Citizen a Fire Warden
So far this year the losses from forest fires have not been heavy, states
the minister of lands, Hon. T. D. Pat;
tullo, but he has issued afresh warning
to forest rangers and the general pub-
lit:. The dangerous season has arrived
and after the heavy rains of the spring
and early summer, it is only natural
to expect a dry spell, which in many
districts will probably last for months.
From now on, he claims, every citizen
should consider himself a fire warden,
and join in the fight to protect the
magnificent forests of British Columbia. V
