themselves for examination, audi
Dr. Learoyd has expressed himself
as being highly pleased  with the
standard attained.   He stated that
the keenness shown in the great

acceptance of the gift of a cowhide

Some discussion has been going
on in Alioe Arm recently, regarding the disposal of the Indian
Reserve by the Provincial Government, now that they have obtained
oontrol of it.
How and when it will be disposed of has not yet been settled, nor
has it yet been settled as to the
disposal of the numerous buildings
now occupying the reserve if the
land is sold.
On February 26th. on the floor
of the Legislature, Mr. Peck asked
the Hon the Minister of Lands the
following questions:
1. Is it the intention of the
Government to sell the Kitsault
Indian Reserve at Alice Arm or
any part of it?
2. If so. will it be done by public auction?
3. Have any offers been received for this reserve?
4. If so, from whom?
5. If the reserve is sold, what
does the Government propose to do
with the buildings now located on
The Hon. Mr. Pattullo replied as
1. Under the terms of the
agreement with the Dominion
Government regarding "out offs"
this reserve will be sold.
2. Under the terms of the
above agreement, yes.
3. No official knowledge of any.
4. Answered by No, 3.
5. Will be considered when land
is offered for sale.
On February 15th. Mr. Pooley
asked the Minister of Lands a
number of questions regarding
Indian Reserves now taken over
by the province, among which was
the following:
"Have any portions of the said
lands which have reverted to the
Provinoe been disposed of? If yes,
what portion, to whom, and on
what terms and price?
Tho Hon. T. D. Pattullo replied
as follows:
"Under the agreement, cut-offs
are to be sub-divided and sold by
public auotion, the net proceeds to
be divided equally between the
Provinoe and the Dominion; none
have yet been disposed of."

Hon. William Sloan, minister of
mines died at St. Joseph's Hospital
on Friday March 2nd.   Death followed a stroke suffered a few hours
previously.   He was a native of
Ontario," being born at Wingham
in 1867, and had lived in British
Columbia sinoe 1887.    He was first
elected to parliament in 1904, and
represented Comox-Atlin, at Ottawa.   In 1916 he represented Nanaimo in the Provincial Legislature and up to the time of his death
has represented that constituency.
He travelled extensively throughout the mineral districts of the
province, to acquaint himself with
the needs of the residents and iu
this capacity visited  Alico Arm
and Anyox three years ago,   in
company with other cabinet ministers.   Mr. Sloan had been iu failing health for many months.   He
had made a sea voyage at the suggestion of his medical advisers, and
had appeared to rally on his return.
Prospector, traveller,   woodsman,
politician  aud   finally   a   leading
figure in the Government of British
Columbia, Mr. Sloan lived a life
crowded with experience in  many
fields.   In the last few years he
had become perhaps the most influential public man in  provincial
politics.   In political matters, in
fact, Mr. Sloan was the chief adviser of the government.   His long
experience and shrewd judgment
almost  invariably  governed   the
cabinet's course in political strategy, and to him went most  of the
credit for piloting the government
ship through difficult waters following the election of 1924.   The
success of the government in the
by-elections of Grand Forks-Creen-
wood and Nelson, contests of vital
concern to the administration, was
due largely to the ability of the
minister of mines, and when the
party ran into the disaster of the
North Okanagan poll, it was in
the face of Mr. Sloan's warnings.
His influence iu the council chamber and in the Legislature was of
the quiet kind, but friend and foe
of his party recognized his right to
the title, "The Wise Man of the
The Herald received the news
this week from authorative sources
that plans are being formulated
for bonding and consolidation of
several of the best known silver
properties in the Upper Kitsault
Country. The name of the organization behind the enterprise has
not been divulged, but they are
understood to rank among the best
mining companies on the continent.
The owners of the properties
have until the end of the month to
consider the offer and if suitable
terms and prices are made by them
there is no doubt but that the deal
will be consummated. If it is effected it will rank among the biggest mining deals of the province
in recent years, and will place
Alice Arm on a par with the rest
of the mining oamps, instead of
lagging behind.
New Tunnel at  Esperanza
A new tunnel was commenced
this week at the Esperanza mine.
It is being driven to encounter the
ore vein that is now being worked
in the Baldy tunnel, at a lower
elevation. It is expected that about
75 feet will be driven before the
ore vein is encountered.

E. MOSS, Editor and Publisher,
The sudden death of Hon.
William Sloan, minister of mines,
is lamented by everyone in the
province, irrespective of their political leanings. During the eleven
years he was minister of mines, he
won a host of admirers for the
efficiency attained by this important department of the government.
He introduced several new laws
that were fair and just to both
mining companies and prospectors,
and the mining laws of British
Columbia are at the present time
admitted to be the best in the
world. The passing of Hon.
William Sloan leaves a void that
is difficult to fill. It does not
matter who accepts the portfolio
of Minister of Mines, he will be
handicapped through not having
the ripe experience of the late chief.
William Sloan was the friend of
everyone; prospector, miner and
company official. He was a man
in every respect from the tips of
his fingers to his feet. When the
news of gold finds first filtered
through from the north, he slung
his pack on to the boat at Nanaimo and in 1896 sallied forth with
three partners into the then great
unknown. With his own hands he
dug out $100,000 in gold from the
rich Eldorado Creek diggings and
while others were rushing in from
all over the world, he brought his
wealth south, and carved out for
himself a prominent place among
the Legislators of the province.
This is the type of man, whom all
the province mourns. Everyone has
always admitted that "Bill" Sloan
was a straight shooter. He was
one of the people, and died full of
honors. His passing leaves a vacant chair in the Legislature that
requires a man of exceptional ability
to fill and his death is not only a
great loss to the Liberal party he
served so well, but the whole
Healthy Condition of B. C.
The healthy condition of British
Columbia finances was fairly pointed out in the legislature recently
by Attorney-General A. M. Manson, who closed the budget debate
Tor the government. As minister
of finance, Premier MacLean had
delivered the budget speech and
could not take tbe floor again.
In his stead Hon. Mr. Manson
pointed out that the total debt of
British Columbia is carried at an
interest rate of 4.76 per cent., the
lowest of any province in Canada,
He also stated that when the
finance minister sold British Columbia bonds last year for the low
interest rate of 4.42 per cent, the
issue was eagerly subscribed for.
One other province sold bonds at
an interest rate of only two-tenths
of one per cent higher than that
of tho British Columbia securities,
but the brokers could not dispose
of the bonds without some delay.

Boats have been having much diffi-

The fact that options have been
taken on several well known mining properties in Alice Arm district

IT is not many years since Alaska
was one of those countries
whose geographical location was
indicated with a grandiloquent
sweep of the arm northwards. It
has always been a land of mystery,
romance and adventure. It has
provided the theme for the thrilling tales of novelists and the stirring poems of northern bards. But
even though the' days of the chech-
ako and the sourdough is done, the
brief but active span of the Dangerous Dan Magrews and the Lady
Lou's, matters of historical reference, tho lure of Alaska has not
waned, but is as appealing as ever
to the hearts of men and women
wherein a bit of romance lurks,
nnrl that means to everyone.
Alaska is no longer a far off
country. It is a very near neighbor to Canada. It will be even
nearer this summer. Mr. J. E.
Dalrymple, Traffic Vice-President
of the Canadian National Railways, has announced that commencing on June 22nd, the company will inaugurate a weekly
steamship service between Prince
Rupert and Alaska and that the
oil-burning steamships, "Prince
George" and "Prince Rupert,"
which have already established a
reputation as being among the
best-appointed vessels on the Pacific Coast, will be engaged in this
new service.
Going northward the ships will
reach Prince Rupert at 10.30 on
Wednesday morning, following the
Monday of sailing from Vancouver,
and tourists will be given an opportunity to see something of this
new Pacific port, as the steamer
Some of the scenes along this
magnificent sea voyage are
shown in the photographs:
(1) A view of Skagway,
Alaska, where visitors will be
given ample time to see this
famous town and also to visit
White Horse and the Atlin Lake
(2) A beautiful sunset scene
on the Lynn Canal, which the
steamships Prince Rupert and
Prince George will thread on
their journey into the Land of
the Midnight Sun.
(3) The Taku Glacier, one
mile wide and ninety miles long
—one of the largest and most
beautiful glaciers in the world.
(4) The Prince Rupert,
which, with the Prince George,
will be used in the Vancouver-
Prince Rupert-Alaska service
this summer. These boats are
oil-burners and are among the
finest appointed vessels in the
Pacific Coast service.        '"

does not continue on its northern
trip until four o'clock that afternoon. After passing Old and New
Metlaktla and Port Simpson, an old
Hudson's Bay Post, calls will be
made at Ketchikan, a typical Alaskan town built at the foot of the
mountains. Proceeding from that
point the steamships will touch at
Wrangell, beautifully situated near
the mouth of the Stikine River and
possessing many associations with
the period when Alaska was a
Russian possession. The next
point touched will be Juneau, the
capital of Alaska, and a modern
city with good motor roads and
many points of interest, including
the Mendenhall Glacier and mines
which have made this country famous. On the way from Wrangell to
Juneau there will be an opportunity to see the grandeur of Taku
Inlet and the famous Taku Glacier,
over a mile wide and 90 miles long.
The ships will arrive at Skagwaj
at seven o'clock Friday morning
and will remain there until seven
o'clock Saturday night, thus giving
ample opportunity to passengers
to see this famous town and to
visit White Horse and the Atlin
Lako District. On the south-bound
journey the steamers will reach
Vancouver at nine o'clock Wednesday morning, making a complete
ten-day round trip.
In addition to the Alaskan trip,
the tri-weekly service between
Vancouver and Prince Rupert will
be maintained and also a semi-
weekly service to Anyox and Stewart on the Portland Canal, which
service has been in effect for some
time' past. The establishment by
the Canadian National Railways
of this Alaska steam-boat service
will meet the demands of many
tourists, and will be a fitting climax to the famous Triangle Pour,
comprising Jasper National Park,
the Rockies, the Coast Range and
the water voyage through the
"Norway of America."

way for re-organization of the

League of Nations Doing
Splendid Work For
World Peace
The following was forwarded to
the Herald by the Rev. C. D.
Clarke, who will submit further
articles relative to the League of
Nations Society. It is hoped to
establish a branch of the Society in
Anyox at a later date.
The League of Nations is a
modem organization. Though the
idea is old the League is a direct
product of the Great War. It is
the greatest attempt ever made for
international co-operation for the
betterment of humanity. Fifty-
four out of a total of sixty-four
nations of the world subscribe to
the obligations and duties as set
forth in the twenty-six articles of
the Covenant of the League.
The Preamble of the Covenant is
as follows:—The High Contracting
In order to promote international co-operation and to achieve international peace and security.
"By the acceptance of obligations
not to resort to war.
"By the prescription of open, just
and honorable relations between
"By the firm establishment of the
understandings of international
law as tlie actual rule of conduct
among Governments, and
"By the maintenance of justice
and a scrupulous respeot for all
treaty obligations in the dealings
of organized peoples with one another, agree to this Covenant of
the League of Nations."
"A consideration of this pledge
shows its high purpose, and the
reasonable and practical methods
by which it is to be attained. International co-operation is the line
of action, intornatonal peace and
security the object to be achieved.
To that end the nations pledge
themselves not to resort to war, to
maintain open just and honorable
relations with each other, to establish international law as the rule
of conduct, and to maintain justice
and respect treaty obligations in
their dealings one with another.
' Surely no conception could be
nobler or more sensible, and surely
no one can say that humanity is
incapable of its attainment or
should not at once begin the task
of achieving it."

the alcohol is only incidental, being about the
