Work on Stewart Rail-
Way Has Commenced
Under contract to do much needed repair work on the Portland
Canal Short Line Railway extending up the Bear River Valley from
Stewart, Andrew McCullough, construction engineer, and Angus
Nicholson, well known railway construction man, were passengers
board the steamer Prince Rupert
last week bound north. The work
which they will inaugurate is under
the agreement with the provincial
government whereby a certain amount was to be expended on the line
each year in return for the charter
of the extension of the Canadian
Northern Railway to build a line to
Fort Grahame in the Ingenika
River country being extended.
This is the line which Stewart
people hope will some time make
their port the Pacific Coast outlet
for the Peace River Valley.

Price of Copper In Europe
Well Below 9 Cents
The August monthly letter of the
Canadian Bank of Commerce states
that "there is little change to record
in the metal markets. The price of
copper in continental Europe was
weak, and considerably below the 9
cent level established under the
NR A as the domestic price in the
United States. The price of silver
was strong at approximately the
highest level of the year."
Dr. D. F. Walker Appointed
Government Mineralogist
Dr. John Fortune Walker of Ottawa of the Geological Survey of
Canada has been appointed mineralogist for British Columbia to succeed J. D. Galloway, who resigned

meal which everyone thoroughly
Following the disposal of the
beans, etc, community singing

an enjoyable evening.
Beach Softball Allstars
Clashed on Monday
In order to seleqt an all-star soft-
ball team from among the Beach
players to meet aj similar aggregation from the Mvtfi, a game was
played on Monday evening between
two hand-picked teams. This
proved to be a good tussle, and
from the material available there is
no doubt that a formidable squad
will be forthcoming'. It is generally understood that the Mine will
have just as good a team ready to
field. The best team will probably
be decided by a short series of
games, and will represent Anyox
against Prince Rupert in the inter-
town series now being arranged.

Fine Weather Beckons
Parties Into The
The ideal sunny weather that prevailed throughout the past week
tempted several parties away into
the hills to explore nature's beauties
in ths high altitudes. On Friday
last, the editor of the Herald, E.
Moss, accompanied by his sister
Mrs. G. Jordan of New York and
his three daughters made a trip on
foot to the Kitsault Glacier and return, a distance of 52 miles in all.
They left Alice Arm at noon on Friday and returned at 4- p.m. the
following Monday. The first day's
hike brought them to the Toric
Mine. The second night was spent
at the cabin across the little glacier
and the third night was spent at
the Toric. From the Toric to tbe
glacier and return to town the party-
was accompanied by Mr. Gunn Fiva
caretaker at the Toric, and his
assistance iu helping to make the
trip more pleasant was very much
The scenery, as is usual in the
vicinity of the Glacier at this time
of the year during sunny weather
was magnificent. At our feet the
ground was carpeted with wild
flowers of every description in a
wild riot of color; below lay a great
field of cold blue ice, hundreds of
feet thick, and beyond rose a mountain whose slopes were clothed in
every shade of green dotted with
patches of mountain scrub timber,
the whole creating a scene of indescribable beauty and grandeur.
The scenery in the vicinity of the
Kitsault Glacier and also enroute
is among the most magnificent on
the American Continent, and is
well worth a visit by anyone who
has a few days to spare and a little
energy to expend.

peak that stands sentinel over the

Building Alaska Highway
May Be Dangerous
Latest developments in connection with the building of the Alaska-
Yukon Highway through British
Columbia are, that the United States
Government seem to favor the project, but are evidently waiting for
overtures from Canada. The Federal Government does not seem interested in the matter. One reason
no doubt is that at the present time
it cannot afford any large sum of
money in building a road through a
sparsely settled country. Another
reason, perhaps, why the Canadian
Government is not more enthusiastic, is, that when the road was
completed, it might be used for
military purposes in case of war
between the United States and
If such a war ensued sometime
in the future and Japan invaded
Alaska, the United States would
naturally wish to transport troops
and war equipment over the highway. If Canada gave her permission we would be at war with Japan
and if we stopped U. S. A. troops
at the border we would be at war
with our neighbours.
The Canadian Government perhaps feel that it is safer to have a
wilderness north of Hazelton than
to build roads that might lead to
serious complications in time of
war. With Japan in her present
high state of preparedness and
dreams of expansion it is hard to
tell what may happen within the
next few years.
Dunwell Mine Producing
Spectacular Ore
The Stewart News
Breaking through Monday last
with a raise from the sub-level between No. 4 and No. 3 north drift,
half the mine crew at Dunwell has
been this week sacking some two
tons of ore per day, said to approximate $100 per ton.
According to our information,
this high grade shoot samples an
ounce of gold and 200 ounces of silver per ton.
In addition to this production of
high grade, thirty tons of milling
grade ore is being daily put through
the mill.
It is understood that the management are laying the necessary
airline, etc., with a view to operating the gold vein on the Ben Ali
claim, which has an appreciable
tonnage of ore that stands up to
half an ounce of gold per ton.
Hon. H. H. Stevens Champion of Silver
Hon. H. H. Stevens, minister of
trade and commerce, assured a delegation of the B. C. Chamber of
Mines of his fullest support for remonetization of silver. Mr. Stevens is anxious in every way to encourage the use and sale of silver.
The Chamber of Mines is preparing
a statement re silver to be presented shortly to Hon. R. B. Bennett,
federal prime minister.
C. N. R. Earnings Show
The gross revenues of the all-in-
I Iclusive Canadian National Railways
System for the week ending August
7th, 1934, were $2,885,614, as compared with $2,862,577, for the corresponding period of 1933, an increase of $23, 037.
Untold Wealth Lies
Buried In Northern B. C.
Untold millions of dollars in mineral wealth lies locked in the hills
of Northern British Columbia
awaiting transportation and in some
cases slightly higher prices, before
this wealth is blasted from the
ground, It is there for anyone who
has the money and courage to get it.
It has remained buried in the northern hills for perhaps millions of
years, but present signs indicate
that its days are numbered. The
Consolidated Mining Smelting and
Power Co., who are numbered
among Canada's big mining companies, have, during the past decade
quietly investigated the huge northern mineral resources, and this year
they are doing active construction
work on the railway from Stewart
that will eventually tap the mineral
districts of the interior in addition
to the Portland Canal district.
Just how long before the Consolidated Company engage in mining
Nature Assists Prospectors In
Locating Ores
Western Canada Mining News
Heavy rain washed away the
footings of six sections of the main
irrigation flume at the head of Os-
oyoos Lake, near Oliver, B. C., and
the washout uncovered a vein of
ore on the property of Canadian
Gold Syndicate.
In the course of time, nature
does much to aid the miner. Last
season, Ted Morris found some fine
showings on his Salmon Gold Property, Portland Canal district, owing to a glacier having melted
somewhat. A few years ago the
receding of a glacier in the Lardeau
district revealed veins and the property staked was called the Teddy
Glacier, in which British capital
has been interested recenth. The
rivers, the rain, snowslides, landslides all help to take off the overburden.

TEAT comfort in ocean travel is fast giving place to luxury is established by the fact that the world
renowned "Empresses" and "Duchesses" of the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans, already known by world
travellers for their unparalleled service, have now been equipped for the entertainment of their passengers v/ith the latest Sound and Talking Moving Picture attractions.
As each of these floating palaces drew into their home ports this month, Northern Electric installing engineers swarmed aboard with tools and equipment, and when they put to sea again, the Empresses of "Canada", "Asia", "Australia", "Japan" and "Russia"; and the Duchesses of "Bedford",

Beautiful Ontario Summer Camps Call
%Jnrivalled for its scenic splendors, the beauty of its lakes and
streams and thei* world-wide reputation as fishing-grounds,   Ontario
offers the  holiday-seeker as fine
territory as any to be found on the
American Continent.    Bungalow-
camps bring practically virgin areas
within easy reach of the disciples
of Isaac Walton, with handy connections from Toronto and other
points by Canadian Pacific Railway
fines. These camps are a combination of the lure of the wildemesB
with the comforts of civilization and
consist of individual "camps" or
sleeping-cottages,   centred   on   a
dining and recreation hall. Modern
furniture  and  conveniences   predominate, and thus the individual or
family seeking a country vacation
find golf, tennis, hiking, swimming
sailing, canoeing, motor-boating and
dancing for their amusement, apart
from a wide variety of fishing, which
may be carried out, either in the
vicinity of the camps themselves, or
back in the hinterland, with competent guides, who also acti
servants.   On the main transcontinental line of the Canadian Pacific Railway, three
such camps are found in
the Province of Ontario.
At  French  River,  215
miles north of Toronto,
within a stone's throw of
the railway station.there
is a well-found camp,
which offers muskellunge
and great northern pike
to the fisherman.   At Nipigon, 22-hours run from
Toronto,  trout, pike  and
pickerel   are  the   principal
offerings and at the  Devil'i
Gap,   Kenora,   Lake  of  the
Woods, Ontario, 126 miles east
of Winnipeg, the famous Canadian
black  bass  offers sport  such  as
anglers dream of, but rarely get.
All these camps combine the excellent features already referred to
and   are   visited   by   fishermen,
tourists and holidaying families from all quarters of
the globe, each summer.   They have a thoroughly
enjoyable and thrilling holiday time and return
each season in ever increasing numbers. They are
{>art of a great chain pf such Installation operated

i of taking people "back to nature" and vet giving
them the same standards of accommodation and

T. W. Falconer, accompanied by
his daughter Juanita, made the
ascent, and returned to town in a
single day. Miss Falconer did not
reach the top, but her father stood
upon the summit. A mist, however, obscured the magnificent view
that is obtainable from the peak,
but a splendid view was obtained
a few hundred feet lower where
the air was clear.
Mr. Falconer stated that no
serious obstacles were encountered
during the climb. This should
make it an ideal day's outing for
anyone who wishes to obtain an
alpine view on a clear sunny day.
Climbs Esperanza Hill
Climbing up to bhe Alice mining
property on the Esperanza hill is a
nice stiff climb for anyone who is
not accustomed to the higher altitudes. Mrs. M. Campbell of Anyox
and her two sons John and Malcolm undertook this little mountaineering jaunt one day this week
and thoroughly enjoyed the trip.
A good trail traverses the whole
distance, and an altitude of 1700
feet is gained in comparative comfort.
