U
Important Discovery of High
Grade Silver Ore on Toric Group
Situated Half a Mile North East of
the Dolly Varden Mine
That there is high grade ore on
other properties on the Kitsault
River, besides the Dolly Varden
Mine, has now been proved conclu;
sively by Mr. J. Strombeek, who
last week opened up the No. 2
ledge on the Toric Group and uncovered the richest silver ore yet
found in or near the surface in this
district. Samples of the ore
brought in by Mr. Strombeek are
exceptionally rich in native silver,
and an assay of a very fine specimen gave a return of 9,600 ozs. of
silver per ton. The ore resembles
that found in the Glory Hole at
the Dolly Varden Mine in 1919,
from which 40 tons mined gave
returns of 55,000 ozs. silver.
This discovery proves beyond
doubt that ore bodies similar to
that found in the Dolly Varden
Glory Hole will be discovered on
-other properties in the district as
soon as vigorous development work
is undertaken on the properties
that warrant the expenditure of
the necessrry capital to carry out
the work.
The No. 2 ledge on the Toric has
been traced on the surface for a
distance of 300 feet, having an
average width of 4 feet. Several
open cuts made last year exposed
the ore in which considerable native
silver and sulphides were visible.
At the point where the latest discovery was made, a short tunnel
has been driven, cross-cutting the
ledge and showing a width of 3
feet between the walls. The high
grade lies in the foot-wall and has
an average width of 22 inches, the
balance of the ledge matter being
of a lower grade.
A general sampling of this 22
inches, from which all native silver
was excluded, gave returns of 209
ozs.; 59.5 ozs.; and 40.5 ozs. silver
per ton. This gives an average of
103-ozs. silver per ton. A sample
taken across the entire 3 feet of the
ledge gives 107.4 ozs. per ton.
Mr. J. Strombeek has started a
cross-cut tunnel which will encounter the ledge at a depth of/ 40 feet
directly under the high grade exposure, and at an elevation of 150
feet above the railroad grade.
Parallel to No. 2 ledge 100 feet
to the north, is No. 1 ledge, This
has been explored on the surface
for a distance of 500 feet, showing
a width of over 5 feet of ore. Two
tunnels have been driven on this
ledge, and the ore found gives an
average of 24 ozs. silver per ton
for a width of 4 feet. This is a
very promising looking showing.
No. 3 ledge, which lies at an elevation of 1200 higher than No. 1
ledge has also been exposed. Eight
open cuts have been made, showing
that the ore body is 8 feet in width
and 800 feet in length. A crosscut tunnel has been driven 75 feet,
but has not encountered the ledge
as yet. Assays from this showing
gave very encouraging returns and
warrant considerable development
work being carried out.
The Toric property is ideally
located, No. 1 and No. 2 ledges
being practically on the railroad
grade, and assuming that' this W
test find proves up when depth is
obtained there' is no doubt that
the production from this property
will equal or surpass the record of
the Dolly Varden, which has shipped to date 1,593,952 ozs. of silver.
John Strombeek, Gus Strombeek
and Al. Miner are the owners of
the Toric Group, which was located
in 1914, and consists of four mineral claims. It adjoins the North
Star property on the east, which
adjoins the Dolly Varden. The
high grade found on the Toric lies
about 3000 feet north-east of the
Dolly Varden Glory Hole, and
.about 350 feet lower in elevation.
John and Gus Strombeek are
two of the old timers of the district
having located here in 1908 and
1909. They deserve great credit
for the work they have done on the
Kitsault River. The importance
of this strike can not be over estimated, as it proves that other important'discoveries of this type of ore
will undoubtedly be made in the
near future, and that as soon as
capital can be secured for development work, the Alice Arm camp
should rank as one of the leading
silver producers of the , American
continent.
For" the purpose of pushing oh
construction of the Pacific Great
Eastern line north of Quesnel, into
which town steel was laid a fortnight ago, a loan $1,000,000 has
been negotiated by Hon. John
Hart, minister of finance.
Twenty year bonds to that
amount, bearing interest at the
rate of 6 per cent, have been sold
to a Toronto syndicate, composed
of A. E. Ames & Co. and Wood,
Gundy & Co. Limited, at 93.59.
The English notorboat Maple
Leaf the challenger for the international cup to be raced at Detroit
early in September, has attained
the speed of 80 miles an hour in
trials.   This is a world record.
Prince* Rupert Baseball
z and Football Teams
at Anyox
The Sons of Canada teams from
Prince Rupert, played two games
of Baseball and one of Football, at
Anyox, last Saturday and Sunday.
Anyox won both baseball games,
but the Prince Rupert boys took
the honors for-football.
The baseball game on Saturday
resulted in a win for Anyox with
the score 5 to 0. Anyox line-up
was a strong team, Ferguson and
Thomas being the battery for
Anyox, and Lane and Corckle for
Prince Rupert. The teams were
well matched, but Anyox had the
advantage in batting. Fred Brown
being the star hitter, his hitting
brought in all the runs for Anyox.
The Anyox in-field were a little
more snappy than Prince Rupert.
Harry Down's base stealing got
the best' of the Rupert pitcher.
Rupert had some good batters,
especially Corby and Mitchell, but
Ferguson's pitching held them
down pretty well.
At the game on Sunday Prince
Rupert did a little better, Draud
son opened the pitching for Anyox;
but' Pete seemed to have an off day
so he relinquished the box, Ferguson' taldng his place. Prince
Rupert • led until the seventh
innings, with the score 3 to 1,
when the Anyox wrecking crew
got to work. Thomas led with a
hit, then he was followed by Ferguson, Brown and Mattix. Thomas
,went out on Mattix hit, and Cody
came to bat and brought two home,
evening the score amidst great
excitement. Mattix got home with
the next ball, putting Anyox ahead
by one run. Neither side could
make any headway during the
final innings, and the game elosqd
Anyox 4, Prince Rupert 3, making
two straight wins for Anyox.
Between four and five hundred
fans witnessed the games.

DEAD BODY FOUND
OFF NAAS RIVER
Charles Smith, a prospector on
his way from Stewart to Anyox in
a rowboat, saw a launch with no
name on her, stranded on a bar in
the vicinity of the Naas River, in
Alaskan waters, with the body of
a bald headed man floating in the
water close by. A white Spitz
dog was on the launch and the dog
was so vicious that he had to
knock it down before he could
board the boat. Mr. Smith tied
the body to the launch and left, it
there, he dfid not have enough food
to stay, and the sea was too rough
for him to take the body into his
rowboat. He came on to Anyox
and reported finding the body to
Constable Dryden. Wireless messages were sent out and the information received that the deceased
was a Doctor on a hunting trip,
from Hyder, Alaska. A coroner's
jury at Hyder suspects foul play.
ANYOX FOOTBALL
The. football game between
Anyox. and Prince Rupert on Sun
day night, was about the best
exhibition we have had in that
line during the season. Prince
Rupert had the Advantage over
Anyox, owing to the fact that they
were an aggregation who have
played together all the season,
and Anyox never had the same
eleven on the field before.
Play in mid-field was about even,
but the Prince Rupert forwards
were superior to Anyox in shooting, the Anyox forwards could not
finish. The Anyox defence played
a grand game, the most outstanding players being Ferre, O'Donnell
and Brown. The Prince Rupert
defense was impregnable, as is
shown by the score. Rupert 2,
Anyox 0.
Following is a line-up of the.
teams:
Prince Rupert: Thomson, V.
Menzies, H. Menzies, Anderson,
Stewart, Mitchell, Robertson, Swan
Moffatt, Clarke, and Lane. /
Anyox: Hillsley. McKenzie, Ferre
Nixon, O'Donnell, Brown, Ritchie,

Referee: Mr. D. Wilkinson.

Alice Arm & Camp
Eight Baseball
The long looked for aiid much talked
of game of baseball, between Camp
Eight and the town, was staged on
Friday, August 10th. Friday, evidently was Camp Eight's Jonah Day, for
they suffered a decisive defeat by a
score of 5 to 9. Weather conditions
were most unfavorable towards the
playing of real ball, for the diamond
was very slippery and the moisture
continued to descend during the session. Many wonderful plays were
made, chief of which was that presented to the fans by Richard Manning at
second. Dick simply got along swimmingly, but was under the delusion
that he was competing in a diving
contest, instead of playing bull. In
performing the "swallow dive" we
would put our money on Dick every
time. Lee Intermelia on third starred
for the Camp team. He objected
strongly to there being more than one
ball in play at one time. No doubt it
was confusing for Lee. Terry North
seemed to enjoy the water, and would
no doubt play a good game of "Water
Polo." He cannot understand why
they built the sea so near the shore.
Lloyd Oonant umpired a good game,
and both teams were completely satis-
fled with his decisions. Never listen
to the tans Lloyd, they think it is a
part of the game to kick, and don't
mean half what they say.
Good fellowship reigned supreme,
and we believe under more favorable
weather conditions Gamp Eight would
spring a surprise party on the town
boys. Their pitcher did not have a
fair chance, and was not permitted to
put much buzz on the ball on account
of its slippery condition at all stages
of the game.
Dolly Varden Mining
Company Suit Filed
The Dolly Varden mining property has again emerged into the
limelight, in the shape of a suit
filed against it on August 15th, in
the supreme court at Vancouver,
for $182,322, by George Wingfield,
of Reno, Nevada.
It appears that under the legislation passdd at Victoria in 1920,
by which the title to the property
was finally vested in the present
holders, one of the liabilities assumed by such holders was the obligation to pay this mortgage; which
was originally for $150,000, but
which has grown to the amount
now claimed by the accretion of
interest. .-    •
The mortgage fell due on July
31st. of this year, and action has
now been entered by the plaintiffs
solicitors, Bourne McDonald and
Desbrisay. The defendants named
are the Taylor Mining Co., Ltd.,
the Taylor Engineering Co., Ltd.,
and Chas. M. Ralston, Cambie and
Smithe Street. Plaintiffs ask for
an accounting, for foreclosure, for
possession, and for the appointment
of a receiver. ALICE   ARM   AND   ANYOX   HERALD,   Alice Arm,   Saturday, August 20th., 1921

To the Citizens
of Alice Arm.
The policy of this newspaper
has been from its first publication,
to study the interests of the citizens
of this town, and it will always
continue to do so, and by citizens
we mean the people who are living
in the district, especially those who
have built their homes and invested
their money here, whether in mineral claims, or as business men.
They are the one's who have to
bear the brunt of dull times when
the mines close down, and they are
the people who stick and keep the
town alive until better times come.
We do not expect to please everyone, because that is impossible.
The newspaper has never yet been
published that did do it. The
duty of the country newspaper is
to study the interests of its permanent citizens, and that is what we
intend to do.
Alice Arm
Citizen's League.
The town of Stewart at the
head of the Portland Canal, is
going to have a liquor store; but
that is not all, they are going to
have a railroad too, built in there
by the C. P. R., at least, its
rumored so, and there is generally
some fire where there is lots of
smoke. After the people of
Stewart get a railroad built into
Peace River country, they will
probably go after a pipe line to
pipe the oil out of the interior, and
perhaps get it too. Why is it?
Because they have a live Citizen's
Association; that's why. Think it
over folks, there are lots of things
we need here too, for a start we
need a new School, a Court-house,
a Bridge over the Kitsault River,
the Indian Reserve thrown open
for purchase, a bigger Wing Dam
above the town, a water and fire
fighting system, the Dolly Varden
mine in operation, the— but why
continue.
The reporter tells what he sees,
and he sees largely those things he
wants to see. Whether it is a
labor paper, a financial paper, a
political paper, or even a family
newspaper, you are bound to find
to some extent the personality of
the writer shown in the news
columns. However much an editor may prune down and eliminate,
it is there. In fact, a newspaper
without some personal element is
not very readable.—Prince Rupert

Pat Daly Wins the
First Round
Demurrer to a $1,960,000 suit
brought by Pat Daly, who seeks to
recover a one-fifth interest in the
Premier mine, was overruled in the
Superior court at Spokane, July 7,
and the case will probably come to
trial early in the fall. The demurrer was presented by R. K. Neill
and associates, defendants in the
case.
Never make a criticism without- giving some kind of a suggestion.

Most unlucky Man
in Yukon Missing
Con van Alstyne, veteran Yukon
pioneer, who has been missing for
several weeks is believed to have
fallen into an old prospect hole or
to have been killed by wild beasts.
Van Alstyne, sometimes called
the unluckiest man in the Yukon,
left his summer camp on Mission
Creek a few weeks ago on a prospecting trip to Eagle, 100 miles
north of Dawson.
He had been searching for gold
in this region for a quarter of a
century. He first attracted attention when he staked the famous
claim No. 16, Eldorado, in the
Klondike camp. Believing it,poor,
he exchanged it for another, owned
by Thomas Lippy, who later mined
$2,000,000 from the property and
his successor took further fortunes
from it. While Lippy went to
Seattle a multi-millionaire, van
Alstyne obtained very little out of
Lippy's old claim.

It is always to be expected that
newspapers will be subject to
criticism. It is part of their life
blood. Usually one column of a
newspaper is devoted to opinions,
and those opinions are always open
to criticism. The news columns
are also often not free from personal bias.   It cannot be otherwise.
Stewart to Groundhog
Railway
There are persistent rumors in
Stewart that the C. P. R. is to
build a line into the Groundhog
coal fields next year, and that shipments of the coal will be made
through this port. Mysterious
visits of people supposed to be
closely in touch with the C. P. R.
interests are made here from time
to time, and there are other indications that outsiders are taking a
more than ordinary interest in this
little camp.

William Booth, Prince
Rupert Old Timer
is Killed
The inany friends of Mr. William
[ Booth, will be sorry to hear of his
[death in Prince Rupert, on August
' 11th. He was killed while trying
to stop a runaway team and wagon
in which there were several children. The wheels of the heavy
wagon passed over his chest, and
he died at the hospital shortly after
the accident. In 1911 he joined
.the city waterworks department,
with whifh he has been since, with
the exception of a long period he
spent with the Canadian Expeditionary Forces overseas. He enlisted with the 62nd. battalion in
June 1915 and was transferred to
the 48th. overseas. He was wounded with shrapnel on the Somme,
in Juno 1916, but remained in the
service until the end of the war.
He had a splendid record and was
made a sorgoant before he was
discharged. He had just finished
building a new house, and was to
have been shortly married.
Jap Gets 2 Years.
The Jap from the Naas River,
who stabbed a fellow countryman
recently, was sentenced to 2 years
by Judge Young in Prince Rupert,
last week. His Honor impressed
upon the accused .that in this
country the wielding of a deadly
weapon, like a knife, could not be
tolerated.
Copper Mountain Mine
may Resume Operations
There is a good prospect of the
Copper Mountain mine being reopened, and the concentrating mill
at Allenby again placed in commission. The Canadian Copper
Company is under heavy obligations to the Canadian Pacific Railway, which built a spur to the
mine at a cost of $2,000,000; to "the
West Kootenay Power Company,
which built a transmission line to
the mine and mill; and to the Trail
smelter with which a cost plus-
contract for smelting was arranged.
Those investments cannot be allowed to remain unproductive, and the
mine must be operated at the .first
opportunity. It is stated that if
the Canadian Copper Company
fails to do so, the Consolidated
Mining and Smelting Company
may undertake operation in order
to provide tonnage for the railway
and ore for the smelter.
Trial of Engineer Mine
is set for September.
Trial is now set for September
of this year, of the famous Engineer
mine at Atlin. It has been held up
by litigation for a long time, and
the ownership will no doubt be
finally settled this fall.
The salmon canneries on the
Naas and Skeena Rivers have experienced .the worst season they
have ever had.

by the players of the A. 0. L,
Orchestra. Mr. Bert White's violin
solo, and Mr. Ferre's coronet solo
meeting with popular approval.
The boxing bouts were all interesting, chief amongst which was the
bout between Jimmy Ferguson of
Anyox and George Corckle of
Prince Rupert, and which was four
rounds of good clean boxing, and
resulted in a draw. Both men
were'in good shape and put up a
good exhibition of boxing. Corckle
was the heavier of the two and
was undoubtedly holding himself
back on that account. He is too
much of a gentlemen to take advantage of an opponent in a friendly bout. The same two met on the
baseball diamond the following
day, Ferguson pitching for Anyox
and Corckle catching for Prince
Rupert Sons of Canada.
