Elks Entertain Children
At Annual Flag Day
The seventh annual Flag Day
sponsored by the local B. P. 0; E.
and held on Wednesday afternoon
at the Ball Grounds was a splendid
success. Old Sol deigned to smile
down benignly on tne scene making
the weather just right for the^eating
of loads of ice cream and drinking
of pink lemonade etc.
The parade started at 1.30 p.m.
from the Elks' Hall, where the kiddies were presented with paper hats
The famous Elks' Rube Band led
the parade which consisted of close
to 150 youngsters.
Upon arriving at the grounds
flags were handed out to all present
and the Rev. C. D. Clarke gave a
very interesting address on the flag.
The kiddies were then turned loose
on the refreshment stands, where
they were filled to repletion with
ice cream, cherryade, and peanuts.
The committee in charge had things
well in hand and the races were run
off in snappy style. The winners
were: ,

Anyox Elks Spend Week
End at Alice Arm
When a social event is sponsored
by Anyox Lodge No. 47. B. P. O.
Elks it is well known that it is
going to be of the best. This rule
held good on Saturday evening at
the Alice Arm Hotel, when the
"Brother Bills" came over in force,
held a regular meeting, initiated
two members, and followed the
business session by a dance.
A record number from Anyox
made the trip and they were augmented by a large number of local
residents. Dancing was commenced
right after the meeting and continued with the greatest enthusiasm.
The floor was crowded with
dancers, who despite the heat were
ready for more, and then some more.
The celebrated Moose orchestra
furnished the music, and as dispensers of dance music they are peerless.
Enough snap was injected to keep
the whirling throng itching for more
and encores were frequent.
The majority of the visitors extended their visit until Sunday evening. The Antlered Herd from
Anyox discovered such good pasturage that they hope to pay the
Arm another visit in the near future
when it is hoped that several more
candidates will bjj initiated.

Walked from Stewart to Alice
Arm Eight and Half Hours
Dr. Hanson, Dominion Government geologist, accompanied by
two students arrived at the head of
the Kitsault Glacier from the head
of Marmot River, Stewart a few1

at the head of the Kitsault River at
3 p.m. the same afternoon, the trip
thus taking only 8^ hours.
High altitudes were kept, travelling being done on snow and glacier
What was formerly thought to be
a strenuous hike is only an afternoon's walk, from one camp' to the

Fine  Ore Samples Brought
To Town
Several large samples of zinc ore
were brought down from the Sunrise Group on McGrath mountain
during the week. Two of these
have been added to the display near
Bruggy's Store. They are composed of massive zinc ore, and show
the character of ore we have almost
at our doors awaiting development.
Final Payment $100,000
For Toric Mine
Arrangements have been completed for the final payment on the
Toric Mine, by the Toric Mines Co.
Ltd. of Vancouver. The total sum
involved in the transction is
$100,000 and was spread over two
The bond was taken on the Toric
by the above company, then operating under the name of the Consolidated Homestake Mining & Development Co. Ltd. on August 15th.
1924. No payment was due until
one year from bonding date, but the
company agreed to drive 45 feet of
tunnel each month for the first year.
The phenominal success attained is
well known, and plans were matured for the construction of a concentrating mill.
This will be in operation in a very
short time. The mine thus being
developed, and a mill in operation
less than three years from the commencement of underground work
which commenced in October 1924.
The Toric was located in 1914 by
Gus. Strombeek and John Strom-
beck. Later Al Miner acquired a
quarter interest, through trading a
quarter interest in the Three Musketeers with J. Strombeek. Both
Strombeek brothers are residents of
Alice Arm while Al Miner has spent
the past few years in California.
The successful development of the
Toric in so short a time shows to
some extent the richness of our
mineral resources. It also shows
what can be accomplished by men
who are not afraid to put their
theories into practice. It requires
nerve and good judgement in developing a prospect, and this has been
shown by the management of the
Toric Mines Co.
LeRoy, Silver Cord and
Eagle Satisfactory
Mr. W. S. Bacon, M. E. who
has spent the past two weeks examining the Eagle, Silver Cord and
LeRoy properties for the Kitsault
Eagle Silver Mines Ltd., left today
for Vancouver.
He states that work is proceeding
satisfactorily on all properties.
Good ore has been found in bunches
on the Eagle, but the tunnel will
have to be driven about 40 feet
further before the main body is
reached, when a depth of 100 feet
will be attained.
While inspecting the Silver Cord
he ordered the commencement of a
new tunnel, 150 feet lower elevation
than the one now being driven. At
the point where the new tunnel has
been commenced is a fine showing
of zinc ore, which will be developed.
It is expected that development
work will be started on the LeRoy
this week-end.
It is very probable that the Herald will not be published until
Saturday next week. If such is the
case papers will not arrive in Anyox

E. MOSS, Editor and Publisher.
A good many Anyox people
have paid a visit to Alice Arm
this summer. Some have extended their visit to two months, while
others have curtailed it to a single
day. Whether it was two months
or a day, those making the trip
benefitted, for they lifted themselves out of the continual rut and
grind of work. They dropped all
cares, and when they returned to
their labors they attacked them
with renewed vigor. For they
had trod God's green earth again,
rolled in the clover and fished the
creeks, climbed the mountains and
invaded the Kitsault and Illiance
valleys. They felt more like a
man, and why should'nt they? for
they had drank their fill of the
best tonic that nature or medical
science can provide—fresh air,
sunshine and outdoor exercise.
For the sake of economy some
denied themselves a trip. They
are burning the candle at both
ends, and nature will rebel unless
her laws are carried out, and recreation be also included in the
yearly bill of fare.
If a fire had started in the
town of Alice Arm daring the
past two or three weeks, it would
have wiped out the town
in about two hours, for everyone
would have been powerless to
check it. There was hardly
enough water available to extinguish a candle. Within a few
hundred feet of the town we have
a stream capable of furnishing an
adequate supply of pure water for
domestic purposes, and a 4-inch
"pipe through the centre of the
town would safeguard us against
a fire. If the cost of piping the
water was borne proportionally by
every householder the cost per
capita would be small. Unless
something is done to increase our
water supply, a fire disaster will
eventually overtake us.
Outlook for Copper is
Gradually Getting
Probably the outstanding feature
of the copper market is the confident attitude of the producers.
The nervousness that has characterized many of them every time
the market has started upward
heretofore this year is absent.
Buying has not been particular
heavy during the week, but without exception sellers are asking 13c.
and one or two are out of the
market at this level. A strong
factor has been the foreign buying.
The price of the export association
was advanced from 13c. c. i. f. to
13.15c. on July 21st and on Monday, July 25, a further advance to
13.25c. was made. This was after
the domestic market had been
pretty well established at 13o. in
the Valley. The effect was to dull
the appetite of foreign buyers for
the time being, but sales for the
month of July will total close to
60,000 tons, or nearly as much as
in the excellent month of May.
Sales on last Thursday in the domestic market were at 12|c. and 13c.
and on the split between. On one
lot 13c. was shaded ou Friday, but
nothing has been sold under that
figure since. A few large sales in
the Middle West brought 13.125c,
and account for the slightly higher
quotations on July 24 and 26. It
is thought in some quarters that
the pending consolidation of several
large wire companies has caused
their customers to hold back, and
that the consummation of the deal
will be followed by more active
buying from that direction. The
American Brass Co. has made
another advance in the prices of its
products, this being the second
within ten days. The basis is now
a 13c. copper market.
The advertising columns of the
Herald is the surest way of broadcasting your message, whether it is
a house or phonograph for sale; a
dance to be held, or anything you
wish the public to know about. A
dollar or two invested in advertising
is the biggest dividend payer on
record, especially where tickets are
sold for admission to a dance or
other social event. Try and be convinced. Spend one dollar and pick
up ten.

The increase in metal pricesdur
ing the last week or so comes at a
time when "midsummer dulness"
in business might well have been
offered as an excuse for a lifeless
metal market. Hot and humid
though it was when the buying
movement was getting its initial
momentum, it becomes evident
that a reasonable amount of pin
chasing could no longer be delayed
and sellers were quick to advance
prices to more profitable levels
after they had been scraping hot
torn for several weeks. It is distinctly encouraging to note that
the strength has not been in the
metals alone, else it might have
been considered merely a passing
breeze that would quickly subside.
Other comodities have also ad
vanced, as is indicated by Irving

Structural Materials and Miscellaneous Minerals, $50,175,407, making its mineral production to the end
of 1926, show an
Aggregate Value of $988,108,470
The substantial progress of the Mining industry of this Province is strikingly exhibited in the following
figures, which show the value of production for successive five-year periods: For all years to 1895, inclusive $94,547,241; forfive years, 1896-1900, $57,607,967; for five years, 1901-1905, $96,507,968; for five years-
1906-1910, $125,534,474; for five years, 1911-1915, $142,072,603; for five years, 1916-1920, $189,922,725;
for five years, 1921-1925, $214,726,650; for 1926, $67,188,842.
Production Last Ten Years, $429,547,755
Lode mining haS only been in progress for about 25 years, and only about one-half of the Province has
been even prospected; 200,000 square miles of unexplored mineral bearing land are open for prospecting.
The Mining Laws of this Province are more liberal and the fees lower than those of any other Province
in the Dominion, or any Colony in the British Empire.
Mineral locations are granted to discoverers for nominal fees.
Absolute Titles are obtained by developing such properties, security of which is guaranteed by
Crown Grants.
Practically all British Columbia Mineral Properties upon which development work has been done
are described in some one of the Annual Reports of the Minister of Mines. Those considering
mining investments should refer to such reports. They are available without charge on application
to the Department of Mines, Victoria, B. C. Reports covering each of the six mineral Survey
Districts are published separately, and are available on application. Reports of the Geological

ALICE  ARM  AND   ANYOX   HERALD,   Friday,    August   12 1927
Two Companies Control
World's Nickel
Within the last forty years
Canada has become the dominant
source of supply in the nickel industry and now furnishes between
85 and 90 per cent of the world's
requirements of that metal from
mines in the vioinity of Sudbury,
Ontario. Canadian production is,
practioally speaking, entirely in
the hands of two large corporations the International Nickel
Company with headquarters in the
United States and the Mond
Nickel Company a British ooncern.
Both companies mine their ore and
smelt it to a matte in the Sudbury
district, but refining of the matte
is done elsewhere.
Water Power Deciding Many
Factory Locations
Water power is one of Canada's
greatest natural resources and is
available in large quantities near
practically all the centres of industry from coast to coast. It is
now establishedfrom theexperieuce
of many years that wherever
water- power is developed industry
and population inevitably follow.
Furthermore the modern tendency
is for the large industries to locate
at the power site because the cost
of power is lower the land for
factory sites is cheaper, the cost of
living for employees, taxes, and
other items are lessened and thereby the general cost of production
are reduced.
Canada's National Debt  is
The net debt of Canada has decreased $52,498,429 in the first
four months of the fiscal year opening on April 1.
On March 31 the net debt was
$2,347,834,370 and last month it
had decreased to $2,295,335,940.
In the corresponding months of
last year the decrease was more
than eleven million less.
Canada Received Many
British Juveniles
The annua] report for 1925-26 of
G. Bogue Smart, Supervisor of
Juvenile Immigration, in the Department of immigration and Colonization, shows that since the year
1868 the number of children sent to
Canada by various philanthropic
agencies or societies, is 83,888. Of
these 26,555 have come from the
Dr. Barnardo Homes, while two
other agencies that have brought
14,578 and 5,529 juveniles respectively, have now amalgamated
with the Barnardo institution. For
the year ending Maroh 31st. 1926,
1,862 children—1,590 boys and
272 girls—were brought out to
Government Service Finds
Many Jobs
The government employment
service placed more than 50,000
persons in employment in 1926,
according to a report of superintendent J. H. MoVety. Conditions
were good but there was a surplus
of labor.
The Canadian Pacific Railways
and Steamships form the largest
transportation system in the world.
What all citizens should work
for is a condition of government,
city, provincial and national, where
everybody pays taxes with a smile.
In 1926 the Kennecott company
conducted its operations at the
Kennecott mines and Latouche
without a fatality.
Britannia Mine is continuing
production on about the same
basis as during 1926, with approximately 3000 tons of ore being
handled daily.
And lots of people who think
that they have nothing but trouble
don't know what trouble really is.
Away back in the late sixties thousands of
acres of British Columbia's timber were
sold for one cent per acre, which looked
like a fair price—then. To-day similar
timber is worth from $150 to $200 an acre,
so tremendously has timber appreciated in
value within the scope of an average lifetime.
What the young growth of to-day will be
worth sixty years from now is beyond computation if it is protected from fire   and
allowed to reach maturity.
The moral is obvious

for his ability as an eyesight

sharp increase beginning with the
week ending July 13. The stock
market, too, has been buoyant, a
good omen for the future.
Without doubt, general business
conditions during the first half
year have been below the level of
the first half of 1926. But an excellent fall and winter trade is confidently expected, and current increases in prices of metals and
other raw materials seem to be
well justified by the business that
manufacturers expect to do two or
three months hence. As long as
money remains easy no very serious industrial slump is at all likely
to eventuate.
It is to be hoped that producers
will not expand output as a result
of higher prices. Overproduction
has been a spectre too long. It is
more a ghost than a reality, but it
has been a very healthy ghost and
lias been too much of a power in
keeping down prices. By holding
production in check, even with
better prices, perhaps the ghost
may be laid low.—Engineering
and Mining Journal.
