Toric Mine Ships 120
Tons of Concentrates
From New Mill
Three Tons Concentrates
Per Day Produced
Last week about 120 tons of
concentrates were shipped south
by the Toric Mines Co. Ltd.
This is the first shipment of concentrates made from Alice Arm,
and it marks another important step
in the camp's progress, from which
there will be no let-up.
The concentrating mill at the
To"c is functioning satisfactorily,
about three tons of concentrates being produced each day, which are
being shipped to the government
Owing to additional demands
made on the power plant this summer, the mill is unable to be operated to capacity. Next year, however, additional power will be installed and the full 50 tons of ore
per day will be concentrated.
The Toric has an abundance of
ore in sight, of a good milling grade
and development work is proceeding. Recoveries of values are said
to be from 86 to 88 per cent.
A new bunkhouse has been constructed and some of the older
buildings renovated.
It is expected that the mine and
mill will be operated throughout
the coming winter.
Managing Director A. C. H.
Gerhardi is at present in Vancouver. He is expected to arrive,
however in the near future.
Meeting Held Organize
Night Classes
At a meeting of the School Board
on Friday D. J. Hartley, Principal
of the elementary school was again
appointed director of night schools
Classes will be organized for any
subject in which an attendance of

started as soon as possible after
October 1st. The new member of
the board is Mr. A. W. Gigot.
The board made its first visit to the
schools on Tuesday afternoon.
Tennis  Play Resumed
Anyox Courts
Fine weather over the week-end
permitted the resumption of tennis
after a fortnight's lay-off. The
finalists in the ladies' singles, Mrs.
Cutler and Miss Leighton, resumed
play at 6-3, three-all, Miss Leigh-
ton finally drawing even by taking
the set at 8-6. In the third set
Mrs. Cutler began playing for the
base-line and seemed to be losing
out but she came out from behind
to win the deciding set at 7-5, the
last game going to deuce several
I times.
Elks' Carnival  Proves
Great Attraction
on Monday
The big Elks' Carnival held on
Monday evening, at the Elks' Hall,
went over with a bang. Wheels of
chance were spinning; bally-homen
were inviting everyone to take a
chance on winning a big prize, and
with drums beating the excitement
lasted far into the night.
No one present could resist the
temptation to take a chance with
such high pressure persuasion, and
the various games were well patronized. The lucky gamblers
obtained some excellent prizes, that
were worth taking a two-bit or
fifty cent shot.
The profits derived will be used
for benevolent purposes, among
them being the Elks' Children's
Christmas Tree.
The prize winning ace of the
evening was J. J. H. Varnes, who
with ticket 437 won the feature
prize a Langmuir-Hartman wardrobe trunk, valued at $80.
The committee in charge of the
Carnival is to be congratulated on
the amount of energy expended,
both muscular and vocal in making
the affair such a success.
B. P. 0. Elks Entertain
Baseball Teams
On Monday the 17th. the Elks'
Lodge were hosts at a banquet and
smoker in honor of the Elks' baseball team and members of the Store
and Office team. Contributing to
the vocal and musical program were
Bros. Dresser, Owen Kirkwood,
Roberts, and Bennett. Messrs.
Ritchie and Roberts played a banjo-
mandolin duet.
Mr. Heywood was heard in a
couple of comic selections, and Mr.
Ashmore and Mr. Hegarty also
sang. Bro. B. M, Buck, as toast-
master, proposed "the King".
Bro. Ashton and Mr. Ashmore
spoke to the toast to the Store team
Bro. Smith and Mr. Healy to the
Office team; and Bro. Harmon and
Mr. D. Wilson to the Elks' team,
Anyox champions. Bro. Macintyre
addressed the gathering on behalf
of the Community League, and Bud

done. An enjoyable evening closed
with the singing of "Auld Lang
Big Night Promised at
Opening of New
At the meeting of the A. C. L.
Council on Wednesday, it was
reported that by the end of the
week the doors will be in place and
the gymnasium will be locked up
until the night of the opening
dance, October 8th. Certain fittings for the heating system may
not arrive by that time as they
had to be ordered from a point
more distant than at first supposed.
Meanwhile the Council is arranging for the delivery to the gym of
the Mason & Eisch piano purchased from Dr. Learoyd, at a price of
$200. Mrs. Pynne recommended
this one from the several which
were offered. In regard to the
dance, already over two hundred
tickets have been sold and Mr. V.
S. McRae who is directing the
campaign expects to cross the three
hundred mark.
Rules for the waltzing competition will be published in the Qran-
by News next Saturday. There
will be prizes valued at $5 for old
and new styles of waltzing, and
Councillor Harmon is busy with a
scheme for the judging which he
expects to minimise the adverse
criticism of the aivarding of prizes.
A voice from the press gallery was
heard questioning the council's
faith in the buoyancy of oxygen-
filled balloons. In this connection
it was considered by the council
that members of the league who
|attend meetings must wait until
the conclusion of business before
joining in the proceedings.
Badminton  Enthusiasts
Meet and Elect
A meeting of those interested in
badminton was held last Friday,
about 20 attending. The members
of last year left the club over $40
which will be applied to the purchase of trophies and equipment. In
view of the shortened season last
year it was decided to request all
officers to serve again elections being made to fill vacancies. Fees
will again be $4 and it is requested
that those who intend to play will
sign up immediately so as to allow
the order of shuttles to be made up
as soon as possible. Racquets
may also be purchased at a reduction through the club. Play on the
two new courts will be restricted to
members only, out-of-town- visitors
being charged 50 cents a session.
Officers are: President Mr. J. A.
D. Stewart, Vice-Pres., Mrs. R. O.

Disposition of The "Red
Parrot" in Doubt
The Council of the A. C. L. are
concerned for the "Red Parrot.''
Since opening on May 25 there has
been a profit of $350, but at pre
sent the League is committed to a
salary and expense account of
nearly $200 a month. The Finanoe
Committee advises caution in at
tempting to carry on at this rate
during the winter, when profits
are likely to be lower.
Accordingly the Council has recommended to the Finanoe Com
mittee that the establishment be
sub-let. In this way it is expeoted
that the service be maintained, at
the same time some independent
and active lessee will make a fair
living off the premises.
Prospects of Large Ore
Tonnage at Tiger
Is Good
Much Ore Exposed Surface
and Underground
The ore bodies of the Tiger,
which is being developed by the
Utility Mining & Financing Co.
are expected to go to a great depth
and also carry value with their
At the present time the face of
the 400 ft. crosscut tunnel has been
advanced to 125 ft. and the starting of the 800 ft. level tunnel is
now under consideration.
Good ore is well exposed on the
Tiger in ten open outs for a distance of 300 ft. as well as underground for the same distance, in
drifts and crosscuts to a depth of
250 feet.
The ledge is a true fissure vein
in the usual porphyrite of the upper Kitsault River silver zone.
The ledtfo strikes north and south
and dips vertically.
The ore body of the Toric miue,
which joins the Tiger, strikes east
and west, and dips strongly to the
north towards the Tiger claims.
It is significant that the Toric ore
body has been developed at an elevation 800 feet lower iu the same
hill than the outcrop of the Tiger
ore shoot. The Tiger and Toric
claims sideline each other, with but
1000 feet separating the two ore

The Anyox night school classes
will commence to function as soon
after October 1st. as possible.
The success of the coming winter
term depends upon the number of
pupils enrolled in each class. In
previous years the night school
classes have met with great success, and many former residents
of Anyox, who have left the camp
for other fields of endeavor, are
now grateful that they grasped
their opportunity in Anyox for increasing their learning by attending
night school classes. This is an
age of learning. The man who
knows most, whether it is the particular line of work he follows, or
general knowledge, is u.. man who
gets the best job, highest pay, and
greatest opportunity for advancement. A golden opportunity is
offered to the men of Anyox especially to the younger generation,
who are commencing their careers,
to increase their knowledge. Two
hours a night, two nights a week,
is the total time demanded of your
leisure hours. The opportunity is
here. Grasp it while you have
the chance, for next year you may
be somewhere else where the
same opportunity does not present
The mining industry of Alice
Arm is expanding, and moreover
the expansion is being built upon a
solid foundation and is not the
result of an hysterical boom, where
properties are over rated, and
which inevitably results in a slump.
The outlook for the mining industry of Alice Arm was never brighter than at the present time. Six
properties are being operated and
plans have been made to conduct
operations on all six properties
throughout the coming winter.
One concentrating mill is now in
operation and another will be added to the list next year, with
another likely to follow in the near
future. During the past few
months, and also at the present
time, mining engineers, representing
big companies have made examinations of the district and when
everything is favorable they are
ready to step in and develop the
mineral wealth of the district on a
larger scale than heretofore. The
next few years will undoubtedly
witness a tremendous expansion in
the mining industry of Alice Arm.
The district possesses enormous
bodies of ore, and development
carried out to date shows that it
is no hard matter to encounter
these surface showings underground, and often values and tonnage found underground even exceed the surface showings.
Alice Arm has everything in its
favor for profitable mining. Its
ore bodies are invariably large.
Transportation facilities are good,
and its proximity to tide water
means low freight rates on ores
and concentrates. Mining engineers, who have travelled extensively, openly state that the possibilities
of Alice Arm as a producer is
among the best in the province.
Prize Winning Mucker
Makes Record
By shovelling 1,000 lb. of rock
into a mine car in 1 min. 44 sec,
William Vitti, of the West Colusa
mine of Anaconda Copper, won the
mucking championship of the Butte
district at the annual Miners' Field
Day contests held at Butte, Mont.,
on August 20. Vitti's time was ij4
sec. less than that of his nearest
competitor among the 27 others
entered in the event, and 13 sec.
better than the record of last year.
The competition attracts considerable interest among the miners of
the Butte district, and has been
closely contested since it was first
included among the field day sports
in 1919. Vitti, who is 36 years old
is one of the youngest winners of
the mucking contest. In the past
the championship has frequently
gone to men more than 40 years of
age. Skill, based on long practise
as well as strengh, is necessary to
win. The shovel must carry a full
load each time, and every shovelful
must fall into the car.
For that run  down  feeling,   sue
the car driver.
Utility Mines No. 1 Limited have
taken over the Tiger and Kitsol Groups

dividend from six to five cents appear to have been an error.
H. A. Guess, vice-president of the
company, in New York, has announced that a quarterly dividend
of $300,000 will be paid. This is
at the rate of 6 cents a share on the
issue of 5,000,000 shares. Payment will be made on October 4 to
stockholders of record on September 14.
This declaration is the second at
6 cents a share, the other having'
been lor the last previous quarter.
All of the others, for several years
have been at the rate of 8 cents a
The reduction of two cents followed the announcement that expenditures were to be made for the
exploration of the Prosperity, Porter
Idaho and Silverado groups in the
Portland Canal region. This work
has been proceeding since spring.
In addition, an aerial tramway is
being erected by the Riblet Tramway Company of Spokane, to connect the three properties with a

Tunnel on Big Missouri
Hits High Grade
Portland Canal News
Much has been affirmed and
denied in regard to results in the
long tunnel at the Big Missouri,
but this much may be said with
certainty at this time, that the
tunnel cut live feet of ore at between 11)75 and 1700 feet from the
portal, one foot of which carries
phenomenal gold values, the gold
being in the free state and plainly
visible, some patches being as
much as an inch in length and
hall' that width. No statement has
been issued here by the management, but so many visitors haveiji
seen the samples and so much has
been said by those doing the work
that there can no longer be doubt
as to the authenticity of the strike.
Mining men are particularly interested in this, because' it is the
lirst instance in the camp of free
gold being found at this depth.
The strike was made at a vertical
depth below the surface of 800 ft.
and 1200 ft. on the dip of the vein.
and the gold is undoubtedly of
primary origin, such as may be
found in the Rand district of South
Africa, the "Motherlode" of Cali
forma, and some mines in Aus

The youngest piper in Canada, who Mew himself to the Highland
gathering at Banff. See him smiling—and the rows of medals and a'.
Billy may be good, but he has a long way to go, for, 'tis said, bagpipes
and the violin are unique in this respect, that a performer on either
instrument has never finished learning. Harold Eustace Keys, musical
director for the Canadian Pacific Railway, who contributed largely to
the success of the Banff festival, and who is the authority for this
statement, added that another point is that the bagpipes are a certain
index of a player's physical and emotional condition.
