Discovery of Gold Ore
Made at Toric Mine
The most sensational ore discovery made in tlie Alice Arm district since the hectic days of the
Dolly Varden was made a
few days ago when gold
ore was encountered in the
Toric mine. Samples of the ore
have been brought to town, and
the gold is coarse enough to be
plainly seen wi^'i tho naked eye.
In addition to the gold values the
ore carries native and argentite
silver, which is also plainly dis-
This gold ore was encountered
in the hanging wall section of the
big ore ledge, and its discovery
was a surprise to many, who had
not considered it probable that
gold would lie encountered in the
Toric, this conclusion evidently
been drawn from the fact that tlie
Dolly Varden ores did not carry
gold values.
Mr. Gerhardi, general manager,
is very reticent regarding publicity of ore values from thr Toric,
but it is plain, even to those who
do not follow mining, that the
Toric is a mine of vast possibilties,
as the ore is rich enough to leave
no doubt in that respect, and all
those who have been underground
cau see for themselves the size of
the ore body.
The discovery of gold ore in the
Toric brings out the fact that
what Alice Arm needs is greater
development. What has been
found at the Toric may be duplicated in a dozen instances when
development work'is increased.
. .The new dining room has been
completed, and the excavation for
the first floor of the concentrating
,*piill is now finished. The concrete
buttments for the retaining wall
will be commenced this week.
Presentation Made to Dr. P.
Whelan at Toric Mine
A very pleasant ceremony was
,N performed at the Toric mine last
,! Sunday, when A. C. H. Gerhardi,
managing director of the Home-
stake Mining Co., presented Dr. P.
Whelan of Anyox with a praotict-
ioners oase.
In making the presentation on
behalf of the employees of the
Toric mine, Mr. Gerhardi said that
they all appreciated the many acts
of kindness rendered by the
! Dootor during his residence in the
1 district, and to show their appreciation they were presenting him
with something they trusted
would be useful to him in the
Dr. Whelan was too much surprised by the unexpected gift to
reply at any length, but said that
although he was shortly leaving
for Seattle, he would always have
pleasant memories of Alice Arm,
and promised to some day return
and renew the many friendships he
had made during his stay at Anyox.
Dr. R. Kinsman, aocompanied
Dr. Whelan to the Toric mine,
where they inspected both the
underground aud outside workings. The presentation was made
after a sumptuous dinner had been
partaken of, and the return trip
was made to Alice Arm during
the afternoon.
Anyox  Baseball
and Football
Another prime in the Commercial
League was decided on Sunday
evening last, when the Club House
aggregation of scintilating stars,
nosed out the Coke Plant Tar
Babies by the narrow margin of
one run. The final score standing
eight runs to seven. Larson was
on the mound for the winners,
with "Wasp" Davies on tlie receiving end. The Tar Babies started
off with a rush in the first stanza,
gathering in live runs, they added
another iu the second frame and
one in tne third. "Benzol" "Jones
seemed to have lots of kick in the
old soup bone, although tilings
looked oad for him at the start,
when, "Our Boarding House"
landed on him for three hits in a
row, which counted for one tally.
He tightened up, however, and
pitched air tight ball until the
fatal seventh. "Iodine" Hill"
again demonstrated his prowess
with the stick, when he sent one
over the creek for four sacks, in
the third inning. The Tar Babies
cracked wide open in the lucky
seventh and allowed six runs-to
trickle accross the rubber.
Archie Smith and George
Bailey were tlie umpires.
The Elks defeated the Smelter
on Tuesday evening by the score
of six runs to one. Cecil Ferguson
on the mound for the winners, was
in fine form allowing only one lone
bingle in the seven innings. Ross
was nicked for six safeties.
Jack Cody was the star with the
hat, getting a long clout to deep
centre with two men on the path.'

The Beach football eleven were vie-.
toric ms over the Mine on Monday
evening, five goals to one. The Mine
made a valiant attempt to stave off
defeat, with only nine men available
for play they held their opponents on
even terms for the first half and fifteen minutes of the second. Hunter
and Jacques were the stars for the
losers. The former being a veritable
stonewall at fullback. Evans notched the lone tally for the Mine.
Elliscm 2, O'Donnell 2, Craggs 1,
were the scorers for the Beich.
Evans was the referee.
The Beach turned in another win
on Thursday evening, and climbed
on even terms with the Mine in the
league table, the victims were the
Smelter eleven. The score was two
goals to nil. Ellison and Robinson
scored the goals. Both sides missed
a penalty shot.
A draw for the Mine in their next
game will cinch for them the second
half of the schedule and the right to
meet the Smelter in the play-off
series. A loss, however, will put
them in a tie with the Beach for top
The dance given by the Anyox
Mine Club at tho Alice Arm Hotel
on Saturday, the 25th..was a very
successful affair. The Mine Club
Melodians were in excellent form,

Alice Arm dancers enjoyed every
minute of the evening.
Granby Co. Suspends Work
on Standard Property
The Granby Co., who have a
bond on the Standard suspended
work on that property last weekend, and brought all equipment to
town. While the close-down was
disappointing to many it was realized that the Granby Co. are at
the present time incurring a
heavy expense at their Copper
Mountain property. When this
plant is operating and making a
profit, there is no doubt the
Granby Co. will again enter the
Alice Arm field. At the present
time the Granby Co. are not developing any new property in
British Columbia except Copper
Miss Mary Cane returned from
her vacation on Friday.

numbers were augmented by the
Anyox visitors who were invited to
join in the merriment.
As in former years, Rev. Rushbrook transported everyone to the
scene of festivities in the Mission

was abundance of good things to
eat, which was supplied by the
ladies, and fifteen gallons of ice

Alice Arm Sends Ore
Display to Vancouver
The formation of an Alice Arm
branch of the B. C. Chamber of
Mines made it possible to send an
ore display to the Vancouuer Exhibition which will be held from
August 8th, to 15th.. At the conclusion of the exhibition this ore
display will be transferred to the
Chamber of Mines,
Although the time was short in
whioh to gather a display, nineteen properties were represented,
and included in the display was
silver, oopper, lead, zinc and tungsten ores. Among the display
were some magnificent specimens
of silver ore.
Mining property owners are still
requested to being in samples from
their properties, as later another
shipment will be made to the
Chamber of Mines. It is hoped
that good ore samples will be
brought in from every mining
property in the district, so that a
worth while display can be always
on hand at the Chamber of Mines.
Bring in your ore and the Alioe
Arm branch will see that it is
shipped. It is the cheapest and
most effective advertising proour-

New Anyox Heating System
Another long section of the
steam pipe line has just been completed at Anyox. Last year a 6 in.
main pipe was constructed as far
as the main fuel oil tank from
number 2 power plant. This year
another 1,800 feet have been added
to it, making a total length of 3,-
300 feet, or over half a mile from
number 2 power house to the
central heating station under the
General Office. This line has been
built according to the most modern
engineering practice and will be a
considerable factor in the saving of
fuel, as well as being very economic
in operating costs. Steam is
oarried in the main pipe at a pressure of 40 to 100 lbs., according to
the demand, and reduced in each
building to a low pressure. All
the condensed steam is returned to
a sub-station and automatically
pumped back to. the boilers in the
number 2 power house. The construction above the ground is a
very neat piece of work, and built
to withstand the severe climate of
this northern country. The successful building of this line was
carried out by F. C. Morrow, under contract with the Granby Co.
O. B. Osborn, manager of the
Drygoods Department, General
Store, accompanied by Mrs. Osborn, were passengers for Vancouver on Saturday. After a short
stay there Mrs. Osborn will visit
her parents at Yorkton, Sask.
Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Gray and
family returned home yesterday
from a visit to Alice Arm, where
Mr. Gray has been developing the
Eureka property. ALICE   ARM  AND  ANYOX  HERALD,   Monday,   August  3,   1925

E. MOSS, Editor and Publisher;
The newly organized Alice
Arm branch of the B. C. Chamber of Mines has already got into
harness. During last week, ore
samples were packed and despatched to the Vancouver Exhibition; and these will later form
part of a permanent display at the
B. C. Chamber of Mines. Some
of our citizens are commencing to
howl about the quiet times, and
wondering why two or three million dollar concerns doivt come in
and scatter their wealth around developing our rich ore resouces. To
these we would say, have you
done your part in encouraging
mining companies to come in?
Have you asked any mining property owner to bring in ore samples?
Have you brought any in yourself, or did you go around and enquire if you could be of any assistance in packing the samples already sent out? Do you belong
to any organization working for
the welfare of the town, and if so,
do you attend the meetings and do
your utmost to help the officers
in their work? Some of these
calamity howlers expect some one
else to do all the work, but when
a few dollars are being circulated
they are there with both hands and
feet, eager to get their share of the
fruits of the labor of the more
enterprising citizens.
Although Anyox is a good
place to work, chiefly on account
of the permanency of employment,
and the regularity of the pay
cheque, it must be admitted that
the atmosphere at times reminds
one of the abode of his Satanic
majesty. To those who occasionally delight in a lung full of fresh
air and wish to gaze on the green
grass, trees and flowers of this
beautiful north, we say take a trip
to Alice Arm and enjoy to the fullest extent the benevolence of
Mother Nature. Beautifully situated in a bowl in the mountains
Alice Arm is one of the picture
spots of the north. Excellent
fishing, boating and hiking facilities
are available,   A holiday spent in
John Conway, Anyox
Government Agent
John Conway, who has held the
position of government agent at
Anyox for nearly five years, has
been transferred to the larger district of Cumberland. He is succeeded by It. M. McGusty, who before coming to Anyox has held the
position of government agent at
Williams Lake.
John Conway is one of the real
old timers of the north, having
spent 21 years in the north coast
section of the province. He was
deputy mining recorder at Stewart during 1904-5-6. Leaving
there he saw service in the government offices at Port Simpson and
Prince Rupert. He returned to
Stewart as government agent in
1910. He was later appointed assistant government agent at
Prince Rupert and came to Anyox
in the fall of 1920.
His friends in the north are
numbered among men in all stations of life and all will wisli him
tlie best of good luck in his new

Mining In Atlin District
Receiving Considerable
Engineer Gold Mines, Ltd. Inc.,
which operates the remarkable
Engineer mine on Taku Arm, in
the Atlin distriot. has optioned
two miles of placer ground along
Pine Creek nearby.
Machinery for hydraulic operations is being installed.
The deep-level tunnel at the Engineer mine has cut the "E" vein
1.200 feet from its portal and 90
feet below the bottom level of the
old workings. Five other veins,
all showing gold, were cut in driving the tunnel.
Driving of the "E" vein at
depth is said to be developing the
same high grade of ore that lias
been found in the upper workings.
The company has installed a 50-
ton mill and a hydro-electric plant,
and it is expected that the output
of this mill during this season
materially will increase the gold
O. B. Smith and associates have
a crew developing the Gleaner
group adjoining the Engineer
property on the north, which is
said to contain the extension of
the Engineer veins.
Atlin Silver-Lead Mines, which
made important additions to its
plant last fall, has secured additional capital and has mapped
out a comprehensive campaign of
development for the present season. Thus there is a marked revival of mining in the Atlin district.

Anyox Band gave a splendid concert under the able conductorship
of J. Varnes. Each musician responded immediately and harmoniously to the baton of the conductor, and Anyox people are justly
proud of their enthusiastic music

present, and all thoroughly enjoyed the delightful music. The programme was as follows: March:
New White House." Overture:
"Festal." Barcarolli: "From
Tales of Hoffman." March: "Old
Comrades." March: "Measage
From' Mars." Overture: "Sweet
Brier." Waltz: "Sunset on the
St. Lawrence." Overture: "The
Elves." March: "Colonel Bogy."
March: "American Patriot."
March: "Contemptibles."
She was a freshman from Vassar,
"Oh, dear," she sighed, "I simply
can't adjust my curriculum."
"It doesn't show any," he reasured
her, blushing. And then they both
talked rapidly about the decorations.
