Examines Property and
Leaves for South
E. A. Haggen was a passenger
to Vancouver on Monday, after
making an examination of the
Mayflower property down ' the
inlet. Mr. Haggen was unfortunate
regarding the weather, during his
brief visit, snow, rain and wind
being much in evidence, in fact he
experienced some of the worst
weather of the. whole winter season.
Mr. Haggen is leaving shortly
for Geneva, Switzerland, iu connection with mining business.
A. Davidson Arrives Home
From Extended Visit
Subscribe to the Herald
A. Davidson arrived in town on
Monday, after spending several
months in the south. He spent
the major portion of his holiday in
Seattle, but also visited relatives in
Montana. During his trip he met
numerous influential mining men,
whom he expeots to become interested in the camp.
Development of Dolly
Varden says £. A.
Haggen
Although Col. Victor Spencer
and associates, who have a lease on
the Dolly Varden mine, have not
yet made any public statement
nor have those in charge of the
plant at Alice Arm received word
that work will be done this year,
it seems probable that development
work will be undertaken. This
view is taken chiefly because "Col.
Spencer has not denied any reports
published in regard to development
work this year.
Mr. E. A. Haggen, the well known
mining editor and consulting engineer of Vancouver, while in Prince
Rupert this week, stated that "An
energetic campaign of development
work in the way of diamond drilling and tunnelling will be started
in May on the Dolly Varden mine
by Col. Victor Spencer and associates and, if the result of that work
is satisfactory, a mill will be installed and the property put on a
producing basis, again.
"Col. Spencer and his associates
who were formerly interested in
the Dolly Varden, have again
acquired the property under lease
and it is their intention to prove
once and for all if further develop-- -.,
ment of the famous mine is warranted. Last year, on their behalf,
the property was examined by J.
F. Tener, a consulting engineer, '"
and it is understood work now to
be undertaken is a result of his
recommendations."
Mr, Haggen also stated that the
Dolly Varden railway would probably be operated by the government in the future, but we do not
believe that such will be the case.
The repair work now being done
on the railway is to put it in condition for light traffic, for the use
of small mining companies and
prospectors. It is the only means
of communication up tlie Kitsault
Valley.

E. MOSS, Editor and Publisher.
The Portland Canal News in
their issue of March 12th. published the following article in their
editorial columns. It emphasizes
strongly what we have advocated
for the past five years, viz. that the
immediate development of the camp
depends solely upon the inhabitants,
"The residents of Alice Arm are
to be congratulated upon the very
satisfactory mining progress which
their district has made during the
past year. Certainly this advancement is necessarily slow, and has
been attended with a certain measure of dissappointment, with which
true and lasting progress seems,
whether with an individual, district
or a nation, to be always associated;
for disappointments have a steadying effect that make for sound and
solid growth, much to be desired
in the long run, However, in
spite of their set-backs,
ever since the ever-to-be-regretted
Dolly Varden fiasco, the
people of Alice Arm have, with the
true spirit of the pioneer, stuck to
their job, and year after year done
their utmost to locate new ore
bodies, and further develop those
already known, until now, still
combatting innumerable obstacles,
the bright future for which they
have so long looked forward is
dawning on their horizon.
"The Alice Arm district, like
that of the Portland Canal and
many yet-to-be-prospected districts
along this great mineral belt, and
in the Interior, his the goods of
which the whole world is ao badly
in need—gold, silver lead, zinc,
copper and other metals, awaiting
in many oases discovery, and in
others capital for their development.
"The people of Alice Arm have
the goods, the faith and the perseverance, and taking a leaf from the
book of Stewart they have given
up waiting for the big operating
companies to come in and develop
their properties. They have formed
very successfully several local companies which they are backing with
their own money, and as a result
are meeting with success that is
attracting the much-to-be-desired
attention of the bigger capital.
"Alioe Arm has to fight for her
development money, just as Stewart did, and still is doing, aud to
the degree that this is done, will
the time be hastened when that
district will become an important
factor in the production of metals,
"Just as the hand that oreated
the hills surrounding Stewart filled
them with untold wealth, so are
the hills surrounding Alice Arm.
The wealth, and all that it means,
is there for the digging, and the
digging into the ground, as well as
for the money with whioh to do it,
is up to the people of eaoh individual district; one is as necessary as
the other, and therefore both have
to be taokled with an equal degree
of determination."
Predicts Maritimes Will
Separate from Canada
The present generation will see
separation of the three maritime
provinces from the rest of Canada,
Major Daniels Owen, K. C. of Annapolis, N. S. member of the Canadian air service, declared recently.
It is said that next year will see
"the beginning of an organized
effort which will crystalize the
secession sentiment so long rampant
Taxes May Curtail P. G. E.
Operations
The operation of the Pacific
Great Eastern Railway from Vancouver to Whitecliff will be abandoned if North Vancouver municipality insists on its claim for taxes
this year General Manager Kilpat-
rick announces. He claims that
the road loses $17,000 annually
mainly due to automobile and bus
competition.

ALICE   ARM   AND   ANYOX   HERALD,   Saturday,   Maroh  27,   1926
Importance of Copper
in Industrial Field
Reviewed
Mining is an important industry
and had been the foundation of the
world's wealth from the beginning
of time. The governments which
have been rioh in minerals have
been the richest and strongest
governments on earth. A country
of great mines always becomes a
oountry of great wealth, influence
and power.
Mining is also probably our safest
business, Forty-one percent more
fail in manufacturing than in min-
v ing, thirty-two percent more fail in
farming than in mining, twenty-
nine percent more in mercantile
business than in mining, and seventeen percent more fail as bankers
than are recorded as failures in
mining.
These figures, compiled by Cecil
Rhodes, are significant
Copper is the most widely used
of all our metals, and its importance in the mining industry is exceeded only by the gold and silver.
Its use is constantly becoming more
diversified and more extensive,
The great hydro-electric development which this nation is experiencing is dependent directly upon
copper. The use of thousands
upon thousands of tons of copper
wire in transmission lines and distributing systems, to say nothing
of its use iu the manufacture of
machinery placing the rein of electric power in the hands of man, is
making demands beyond the canity of the developed copper
mines in this country today to
supply.
This, however, is not its sole use.
It is an important constituent of
bronze and brass, used in the arts,
and in some form is found in every
household throughput the land. No
home today would be complete
without the furnishings and the.
adorment which are manufactured
from copper.
It may well be that our very
national existence depends on copper.
It has been said that three things
I won the war—-oopper,  cotton and
rubber.
Germany's exhaustion was due
as much to her inability to get copper as to any other one thing. She
took the cornices from her homes
and the candlesticks from her altars
to provide herself with the preoious
metal.
No nation can win a great war
without an abundance of copper at
her disposal. The varied uses of
copper in the manufacture of guns,
amunitions, war maohinery and
equipment of every nature and description is a story by itself, I can
only mention them that yon may
realize thesignificence of this metal
from the standpoint of national defence, and how important it is in
the preservation of our nations
honor.
Yet in the fact of the importance
of copper, I am told that tho supply
of manufactured copper on hand
today is only sufficient to last for a
period of thirty days and that at
the present rate of production all
present known developed ore bodies
will be exhausted in a period of
twenty years.—A. Smith, in Spokane Mining Truth.

Interesting Notes on Ye
Badminton Game
Owing to tho shortage of badminton pucks in British Columbia,
the Anyox Badminton Club was
unable to play last Sunday, and
the game is at a standstill until a
new shipment arrives, which have
been on order for some time
through the Granby Stores.
Atelegram was sent to Mr. P.
Brown while ho was in Prince
Rupert, requesting him to bring
back a good supply, but after
scouring the town he found Prince
Rupert was suffering from the
same shortage as Anyox.
This is proving a great disappointment to club members, especially as the season is drawing to a
close for the game to be played
indoors. The ladies, however, seem
determined to keep the game going
during the summer months, and
are already talking of getting a
court in shape near the saw mill,
where they will endeavour to train
their husbands in the noble art.
To wind up the successful winter
schedule, the Club is making arrangements to play a tournament
on Sunday, April Hth, and all
members wishing to take part are
kindly requested to hand in their
names to Mrs. E. J. Conway at an
early date. A charge of 50 cents
will be made to each member wishing to enter this contest.
Only two ladder games were
played on Saturday evening, the
results of which were as follows:
Mrs. W. Robertson and Mr'
Thorsteinsson lost to Mrs. E. J.
Conway and Mr. E. G. Brown
15-13.
Mrs. H. Selfe and Mr. J. Wilson
lost to Mrs. E. J. Conway and Mr.
E. G. Brown 15-10.
Visitors Entertained
A dance was put on by the Mine
Club on Tuesday, March 23rd. in
honor of the basketball visitors
from Prince Rupert, The young
set had a wonderful time, and the
elders entered into the spirit of the
evening. The music was put on
by the Mine Club Orchestra, which
more than came up to everybody's
expectations.
Refreshments    were    provided,
Past Winter Mildest on
Record
The past winter will go down in
history as tho warmest and most
congenial ever experienced, unless
the unexpected again occurs, which
is most unlikely. The past winter
has been practically a snowless one
For Anyox and Alice Arm, which is
a pheuomonen, During every past
winter an abundance of snow has
been our lot, in fact more snow
than was needful or conducive to
comfort.
Although the mild weather has
been a boon to many in various
ways, it has proven a hardship on
tho Alice Arm butchers, restaurant
and hotel keepers, for their usual
ice harvest has proven a failure,
and this commodity, necessary for
the hot weather period, will necessarily have to bo imported at
considerably expense.
Tlie hockey players are also bemoaning their hard luck, but the
householders who don't need ice or
play hockey, are jubilant when
they chock up their fuel, bills and
make comparisons with previous
years, and last but not least, no
frozen water pipes were in evidence
on cold and frosty mornings to
take the joy out of life, or no snow
tunnels to dig from the front door
to the main thoroughfare.
