Arberarder tunnel Cuts
Seven Foot Ore
Development done this winter on
the Aberarder property by A. McPhail has been instrumental in cutting through the ore ledge. It is
shown to be seven feet in width,
with values in gold and silver.
Considerable work has been done
on the Aberarder at different times.
A shaft, 14 feet deep was sunk to
strike the ore. A tunnel was then
driven to obtain greater depth. It
was driven finally for a distance of
400 feet and the latest work as
stated above has cut through the
ore. The vertical depth obtained
on the ore is 100 feet. The ore has
a dip of 61 degrees, and has a
north and south magnetic strike.
An average sample taken across the
7 feet gave returns of $13.20, $3.00
of which was in gold.
Future development work will
consist of driving a lower tunnel or
sink on the ore. The latter mode
of development may be followed as
it is considered more economical.
Other ore bodies exist on the property, and close prospecting may be
carried out this summer to determine their extent.
The Aberarder lies in the immediate vicinity of Alice Arm. It is
only 1500 feet from the town on the
hill on the west side. Owing to its
close proximity to the railroad and
wharf a low grade ore can be profitably mined.

While no sensational ore bodies

other ore bodies in different parts
of the mine.
The tunnel on the Sunrise that
is being driven by the Kitsault-

about 600 feet, and the encountering of the first ore body can be
looked for at an early date.
The ore body at the North Star

Thrilling Games Feature
Anyox Basketball
This Week
Mechanics have won the first half
and are now leading in the second
frame. Their next meeting with
the Concentrator will be a decisive
factor in determining the medal
winners. The last contest between
these rivals gave the Mechanics a
victory by 24 to 18 but an injury to
McDougall lowered the attacking
power of the Mill men. Back-
hecking by the Red-shirts was decidedly influential in breaking up
the blue and white offensive.

Beach Re-organized Team
The Beach have signed on some
more players and very sportingly
are going to provide opposition to
the end of the season. As yet they
have had little in the way of workouts together but they are all in
good shape and know the game.
On Wednesday they had the hard
luck to face the Mechanics whose
shots just could not miss, and the
score was naturally one-sided.

A charter will ba granted the
Canadian Northeastern Railway to
build a railway from Stewart
through the interior to the Finlay
River. The exact route has not
yet been determined, but surveys
of various routes will be made this
summer has been promised by the
railway company. The long fight
that the people of Stewart have
waged promises to terminate successfully. While of course it would
have been very nice had Alice
Arm been chosen as the terminus,
we wish to congratulate the people
of Stewart on their achievement.
They have clamored for many
years for a railway to the interior
and they deserve it. While the
present charter does not permit
building into the Peace River
wheat belt, it will undoubtedly be
accomplished when the company
are ready to proceed. A railway
that ends at Finlay River, and not
having connections with the big
railway systems of the prairie would
have a hard struggle in spite of the
riches of the Groundhog coal fields
and the mineral wealth of the

While in Ketchikan recently Oren
F. Hill met and had a long talk
with W. B; George, famed as being the locator of the George Copper group at the head of Bear river,
which is now owned by the Consolidated Mining and Smelting Co.
Billy, he says, was on his way
north with Mr. Moncton, of the
Trail engineering staff, to make an
extended trip into the Liard country.
From Dawson they expected to
travel by air plane to their destination, and to be gone on the trip for
about eight months.
High Grade Located At
Stewart News
Some of the finest specimens of
ore ever displayed in Stewart were
brought in by James McDonald
from a property which was staked
last fall by him and Frank Sullivan
on Bull dog Creek and named ihe
Mogul. The ore is peculiarly complex, being a mixture of black ^!1-
ver sulphides, fine grained galena
and native silver in a matrix of
pinkish crystalline quartz. Associated with the sulphides is specular
iron which is something new in
this section, although common
enough up Bear River. It is understood that Sullivan has sold his
interest in the property to Jack
Coughlan, Harry Comer and Charles Beale.
Little work has been done on tlie
property, not enough to determine
the width of the vein, in fact. McDonald says he knows it is six feet
wide and that it may be twenty.
A ten foot tunnel has determined
this much.
Eastern Mine  Merger
May Be Effected
A rumor persists that Noranda
Mines, Ltd., and International
Nickel will merge as a part of the
scheme that will give the British
government a world monoply on
nickel. Those well-informed ofthe
intentions behind the present visit
of Robert C. Stanley, president of
International Nickel, to England,
as well as those of certain directors
of Noranda, assert that negotiations are in view for such a merger,
as well as a discussion of the
arrangements for the Mond*Nickel
merger. The presence of Lord
Weir on the board of directors of
International Nickel is said to have
significance in connection with
assertions that the British government is interested in the negotiations.
Jim—You'll  keep our  engagement a dark secret,   won't  you,

Apparently the only thing over
which there is no dispute these days
is the multiplication table. '

No One Is Blamed For
Deaths By Blasting
Stewart .News
John Stahlberg and Frank
Norman who were killed on the
afternoon"of February..11th. while
working at the Big Missouri, met
their death hy staying too long in
the faoe of the drift after starting
to shoot. This is practically the
finding of the jury that enquired
into the tragedy last Friday afternoon.
The jury found that the system
employed by the Big Missouri management governing blasting, held
no flaws, and exonerated them
from any blame in the matter.
The jury consisted of W. J. Crawford, J. V. Clegg, Charles Lake,
H, J. Thomey, H. P. Gibson and
James Morriee, and the inquest
was conducted by coroner H. A.
There were 17. holes in the round
and 13 of these had been fired 11
of which exploded while two
missed. It was evident that the
victims had been trying to get
these two holes to go when the
earlier ones exploded and caused
the tragedy.  •

Is the folk song, dance and handi-
* craft festival developing into a
permanent feature of life in the
Prairie Provinces of Western
Canada? It would seem so. The
remarkable success of last year's
festival at the Royal Alexandra
Hotel, Winnipeg, raised the hope
that it would become an annual
event, and the announcement of
this year's festival to take place
at Regina, March 20th to 23rd, has
been generally welcomed as an indication of the establishing of the
Festival in the artistic life of the
prairies. Those who witnessed
last year's festival will never forget it. National costumes, formed
a riot of color, and national dances
a perfect whirl of studied and dashing movement, while the music,
both vocal and instrumental, was
of such a standard as to set a high
mark for future festivals.
The programme already arranged for the Regina Festival will be
thoroughly representative of the
various races that make up
Canada's West. Eighteen racial
groups will contribute their national songs and dances, and
handicrafts, and the display of
many colored' national costumes
will form a series, of brilliant pictures. *'
All four countries of the British
Isles will participate and European
races that comprise these new
Canadians will include Hungarians,
Czechs, Ukrainians, Serbians, Roumanians, Swedes, Icelanders, Poles,
Danes, Norwegians. Dutch, and
Germans, while from older Canada
there will he French-Canadians,
and the Department of Indian Affairs is arranging an exhibit of the
handicrafts of the Indians of the
Norse handicraft will be one feature ef
the festival. Left, Pool Bal, famous
Danish Baritone, who will render VUdm
Songs. Right, a eolorfil national costume which will be one of Mreral hundred.
The Festival will be held under
the auspices of the Canadian Pacific Railway and the musical features have been organized in cooperation with the Conservatory
of Music of Regina College. It
has the support of the Government
of Saskatchewan whose Premier,
Hon. J. G. Gardiner, suggested that
this year it be held in Regina, In
this connection W. M. Graham, Indian Commissioner, Department of
Indian Affairs, Saskatchewan, is
arranging to  provide  an  Indian
I section where women's work
demonstrating native industry will
.be lent for the Festival from the
"Saskatchewan Government collection. Further, the Canadian Handicrafts Guild, through its Regina
committee, is arranging a general
exhibition of handicraft work, collected from all over Canada, but
emphasizing the handicrafts of the
people of the West. i
Special guest artists from the
east of Canada will include Poul
Bai, Danish baritone, whose rendering of Viking songs at the
recent Vancouver Sea Festival,
will be remembered, and Charles
Marchand, French-Canadian folk
singer and leader of the Bytown
Troubadours, an aggregation
known all over Canada and the
United States. The Regina College of Music will give English
folkdancing, while Miss Jean Gauld
of Regina and her pupils will present the Scotch and Welsh varieties. Irish dances will be given by
two Irish champions. In this way
the British Isles will be covered.
The Serbian national dance the
"Kola", will be rendered by twenty
New Canadians of Regina, and a
German mixed choir will sing
under the leadership of J. W. Eh-
mann, also of Regina. Men and
women representative of the other
racial groups will perform national
folk dances and show handicraft
work either in the finished state
or in process of being made, *
A great, field of varied endeavour
and the fruit of a score of different
cultures will thus be paid before
the people of the West during the
Festival and the way Canada is being enriched by her New Canadian
citizens from overseas will be
demonstrated. Concerts in connee-
tion with the Festival will be given
at the Hotel Saskatchewan and in
the Darke .Music Hall of the Regina College.

pany dropped its previous application
for the right to build into the Peace
River country and to run a branch
line up the Finlay from Fort Graham
for a distance of 100 miles.
Premier Tolmie explained that it
had been felt that the extension of
the line from Fort Graham into the
Peace River block would be regarded as an invasion of P. G. E.
W. H. Stevens, representing the
Canadian Northeastern Railway,
said that it would be satisfactory to
his principals to leave the territory
east of Fort Graham open for the
P.-G. E. and also to abandon, pending decision of the future of the
government line, of the proposed
branch up the Finlay River, thus
feminating the charter application' '
at or near Fort Graham on the
Finlay River.
The line, which was approved by
the private bills committee, is for
construction of 285 miles west of
Stewart, following the Bear and
Naas valleys passing Meziadan
Lake, and on to the southern extremity of the famous Groundhog
coal fields, from where it will, as at
present planned, pass Thutade Lake
and follow the course of the In-
genika River to Fort Graham, a
Hudson's Bay Co. post.
The right to extend a branch for
a distance of roughly 450 miles
north-westerly, from the main line
to the British Columbia-Yukon border and also for a branch down the
Naas Valley to tidewater is also included in the bill as approved.
The Canadian Northeastern Railway is asking nothing in the way
of subsidy or land grants and the
committee was informed ample
arrangements have been made for
financing the project. Surveys will
be commenced as soon as the
weather will permit, parties going
in to the Omineca district by air.
plane. They will, in all probability
establish a base at Thutade Lake.
