Date of Visit Lieutenant
Governor Has Been
Definite news has been received
that His Honor R. Randolph Bruce,
Lieutenant-Governor of British
Columbia will visit Anyox and
Alice Ann next week.
The visit will be purely unofficial.
The Lieutenant-Governor will be
accompanied by his private secretary, A. M. D. Fairbairn, Olaf
Hanson ol Prince Rupert, and
other citizens of that town may
also accompany the party north.
At the present time the party is
visiting Atlin and Telegraph Creek,
accompanied by H. F. Kergin, M.
L. A.
They will arrive at Alice Arm
from Prince Rupert on board the
launch, Granby during the forenoon of the 27th. A trip to the
Toric mine over the Dolly Varden
railway will be made during the day
A reception will be giveu at
the Alice Arm Hotel during the
evening by the Alice Arm branch
of the B. C. Chamber of Mines,
who invited His Honor to visit the
camp during his northern trip.
Everyone is invited to the re
ception,     Refreshments   will   be
'served by the Chamber of Mines,
and a dance may probably be held
following the reception.
On the following morning at 9
a.m. the party will leave for Anyox
where they will be the guests of
the Granby Co. until Saturday
The  Lieutenant-Governor  will
have an opportunity of inspecting
_ the most up-to date copper produc-
P tion plant in Canada, and doubtless
will feel very much at home.
The party will leave Anyox at
10 p.m. on Saturday evening for
Stewart, and on Tuesday noon will
leave there for Queen Charlotte
Islands on the return trip to Vancouver.
Homeguard Devoloped
By Radiore Prospecting
F. F. Clark and J. Reid, who
are in charge of the electrical ore
finding device for the Radiore
Prospecting Co. arrived in Alice
Arm from Vancouver on Monday
and left immediately for the Home-
guard property. They will thoroughly prospect the ground for
ore, and tbe big ore bodies that
are confidently expected to exist
will be mapped out. Development
work of driving tunnels can then
be proceeded with. Results of the
outcome of future tunnels thus being elimated.
The Dalhousie Co. are the first
in the district to take advantage
of locating ore bodies by radiore
prospecting and their policy will
doubtless be followed by others.

Next week His Honor R. Ran-
dolf Bruce, Lieutenant-Governor
of British Columbia, will visit this
district. This will be his first visit
to the north coast, and we trust
that he will find it both instructive
and enjoyable. We believe that
it is the first northern visit of any
Lieutenant-Governor, and Mr.
Bruce is to be complimented upon
the initiative he has shown. The
Lieutenant-Governor is one of the
pioneer mining men of the province.
He was operating the Paradise
mine in the Kootenay before many
of us hardly knew where B. C.
was located, and also before many
of our readers saw the light of day.
In coming north he will be amongst
mining men. He can talk mining
from morn to night if he desires.
We extend a hearty welcome to
our Lieutenant-Governor, and hope
that he will enjoy himself during
his short stay and that he will
have nothing but pleasant memories
of his northern trip.
Rumors emanating from Victoria
state that the Canadian Pacifii
Railway Co. intend at some time
in the future to take over the
Stewart Short Line railway.
Similar rumors were rife over a
year ago, It is very probable that
the C. P. R. will sooner or later
become interested, in the railway.
They will then build through to
the Peace River country when the
time is ripe. Until they have a
northern outlet on the coast, they
can not compete successfully with
other railroads in the vast northern
territory of British Columbia and
Alberta. They are building a big
railroad mileage in northern Alberta
These roads will eventually be
linked up with the coast, and the
C. P. R. will take a share of the
vast tonnage offered for transportation.
It has been pointed out to us
that Alice Arm has many advantages over Stewart as a railway
terminus. We undoubtedly have.
Alice Arm has a better harbor; a
better townsite, and the pass over
to the Naas Valley is claimed to
be far superior to the Bear River
Glacier pass. We published these
facts a few years ago, but no one
seemed interested. If we wish the
Engineering Department of the C,
P. R. to investigate our advantages
as a railroad terminus, we must
point out these advantages and request an investigation of them
One man can not be expected to
voluntarily shoulder the burden
and let others reap, where he
has sowed, pr endure the ridicule of
failure. If we wish Alice Arm to
become a railroad terminus, the
citizens as a whole should support
any efforts made in that direction.

Europe   Buying   Very
Little Copper
Since the beginning of April
metal markets in Germany as well
in the rest of Europe have been very
quiet. Prolonged sittings of the
reparation experts at Paris, appreciable enhancements of money rates
in New York, and the current difficulties in floating European loans
across the Atlantic, distrust of the
"managed" trend of metal markets
on account of alleged arbitrary
price fixing, the revival of metal
bourses in Europe and even in New
York, with some increase of bear
operations, and many other factors,
combine to make business men unusually cautious in making commitments. There is no doubt that the
big blunders in driving the copper
price to unforeseen heights which
were a feature in the memorable
month of March ought never be repeated if the very sensitive European markets are not to be shattered.

The biggest shipment of Hve
muskrats ever to bo shipped from
Canada, a thousand in number, were
carried by Canadian Pacific Express Company from Oak Lake,

Kootenay King
Development work is reported to
be going ahead steadily on the
Kootenay King 18 miles north of
Cranbrook and six miles from Fort
Steele on Wild Horse Creek.
Between 15 and 20 men are employed and the five claims of the
group will be thoroughly explored
this summer by means of diamond
drilling, it has been announced.
Already this property is well opened
up by over 300 feet of tunneling.
Ore taken from the Kootenay
King is similar in character, it is
stated, to that of the Sullivan mine,
which is the property of the Consolidated Co., at Kimberley, and from
present indications the Britannia
Co. has the makings of equally
valuable property in this mine.
Will Diamond Drill Atlas Gold
Diamond drilling is to be done
this season on the property of Atlas
Gold and Copper Company, which
adjoins George Copper, in the Bear
River section of Portland Canal
district. Atlas Gold may come into prominence, as the ore found on
George Copper by Consolidated is
close to the boundary of Atlas.
Stewart, Batten and Associates will
be in charge of the work.
Premier Stock Boosted
As Good Buy
Considerable strength has been
shown in Premier of late. It has
always been a matter of surprise to
brokers how the public have sheered off from this stock. It is without any doubt the most spectacular
and profitable of all B. C. mines,
with a record of $13,000,000 in dividends, with a regular disbursement
now of 6 cents a share per quarter,
or 24 per cent, annually on its par
value of $1.00. True there have
been fears that the mine is nearly
exhausted, but the general belief
prevails that it has still many years
of life ahead, and that, before its ore
has all been used up, additional adjoining properties will have been
secured or developed to keep the entire organization and equipment operating. There is still a prospect
that B. C. Silver may enter the
Premier family and that some of the
other neighboring mines may be
consolidated under the same management,
Bayview, situated south of Stewart, is to resume development work
again this summer. The company
has decided to abandon the Arlington property in the Slocan, which it
had optioned. Meantime funds
amounting to approximately $25,-
000 have been invested in diversified
holdings of mining properties pending a final decision as to what will
eventually be done with the parent
Bayview claims.

Canadians Profit From
United States Visitors
Tourist traffic brought $250,501,-
000 into Canada in 1928, according
to estimates of the Dominion Bureau of Statistics, an advance of
nearly $35,000,000 over the estimated amount spent in the country
the previous year.
The increase was largely due to
the heavy influx of motors from
the United States.
Stewart Water Powers Will
Be Developed
The water board last week handed down a decision by which the
Northern British Columbia Power
Company Ltd. will develop American Creek near Stewart to increase
the Power supply of that town, and
also to furnish electricity to the
neighboring mines. Up to a thousand horsepower will be developed
but in two or three years it is
believed the mine will require a
larger source of supply.

Annual Report Minister
of Mines For 1928
The Annual Report of the Minister of Mines for the year 1928
has been received. It contains a
largo amount of valuable information relative to the mining industry
of the province, and will undoubtedly be in greater demand than
previous years on account of the
big expansion of the industry, and
the eagerness of the big mining
companies to acquire new properties for future use.
Developments of the North- west
em district, of whioh the Alice
Arm and Anyox district form a||
most prominent part, on account
of the big tonnage of copper, produced has been describe'd by Dr.
H. T. James resident engineer for
this district.
Dr. James in his introductory
remarks deals extensively with the
geological formation of the coast
and the coast range batholith. In
this coast batholith are located all
the big mines of the coast from the
Britannia at Howe Sound to the
Engineer mine at Atlin.
In speaking of the Alice Arm
district, after describing the Stew-
irt district, he says:
''At Alice Arm is the Dolly Varden, now inactive but a property
well worth investigation. Across
from it is the Toric, one of the best
low gradesilver prospects in Northern British Columbia; adjoining
the Toric is the Tiger, recently
icquired by the Utility Mines
(Number One), Limited; and within a mile of tide-water is the
Esperanza group, a small high-
grade sil ver property. Many other
good prospects could be mentioned,
but these are fairly well known
and are sufficient to show what
has been found in two short sections of the eastern contact-zone".
Reports on various properties in
the district are also given.
Through the agency of B. C.
Chamber of Mines, a number of
mining syndicates have been formed recently to develop promising
properties. No stock is sold in
these enterprises, each member of
the syndicate bearing a pro rata^j
share of the cost.
