Kitsault Eagle Co. Will
Develop Properties
This Year
The Kitsault-Eagle Silver Mines
Ltd. have decided to continue development work on the LeRoy and
Silver Cord properties, states Mr.
A. McGuire, who returned on
Thursday from a business trip to
Vancouver in connection with company affairs.
Development will commence in
June, when snow will have disappeared. The company has done
considerable development on the
Silver Cord, and this year's work
will consist of further underground
tunnel work.
The LeRoy has not been developed to such an extent as the Silver Cord. It possesses large
surface showings of silver-lead-zinc
ore and these will be explored
during the coming summer. A.
McGuire, who has conducted the
company's affairs here during past
years, will be in charge of operations.
The Kitsault-Eagle Co. are extending their operations, and are
now mining on Queen Charlotte
Islands. They have purchased a
property near Skidegate, which
was formerly on the Indian Reserve.
The ore is rich, carrying good gold
values. A shaft is being sunk to
a depth of 60 feet, and when completed drifting will be carried on
from the bottom of the shaft. Two
shifts are being worked.

Beach Girls and Celts
Win Basketball
Basketball drew a good house
on Wednesday and responded with
the best evening's entertainment of
the season. In the curtain-raiser
Secretary George Winklemann arbitrated between the Midgets and
the Mites in an amusing game.
For the later games Official Referee Norton Youngs took the floor
and a lot of back-talk. The boys
are getting good at this. The
girls seemed to be taking the game
very seriously, judging from the
number of penalties handed out.-
High School went scoreless in the
first half while the Beach Girls
amassed four points. In the second half the students found the
basket for seven points to make it
six all-tie at full-time. The game
continued for another five minute
period, friends and relatives pleading and urging this and that. The
Beach got a basket and the best
the school could do was a free
throw. The play-oif now stands
at one game each.   •
Beach Girls: Mrs. Harman-3,
Mrs McRostie-2, Mrs. Wenerstrom 2, P. O'Neill-1, T. O'Neill.
High School: L. Dresser-4, M.
Cloke, M. Marriott-2. F. Dodsworth, M. Dresser-1. Total-7
The boys' game aroused a mixture of emotions, rage against the
officials being one. By this time
the spectators had worked themselves into a great frenzy and a
seventeen-all score at half-time did
not allow any one to calm down in
the interval. The Oddfellows had
been a little free and easy maybe
with the foul rules and the Celts
had converted many of the free
throws. When the Celts opened
out in the second half and the
Lodge lads tried hard checking the
game got bitter and the players
fewer, and there was gnashing of
teeth when the whistle left the
Celts in the lead at 42-31.
Celts: Davis-4, Patrick-3, Cal-
deroni-8, A. Dodsworth-6, Arm-
strong-19, Hill-2, F. Dodsworth.

Pleads Ignorance Regarding
Harewood Appointment
London, Mar. 13—The report
that the Earl of Harewood would
be the next Governor General of
Canada seems to be without
foundation. The Earl of Hare-
wood's secretary when questioned
did not know anything of the matter. The Earl of Harewood married Princess Mary, daughter of
King George.
Ice Breaking Up On River
At Taku
Prince Rupert, Mar. 13—George
Bacon arrived here today on his
way home to Stewart from the
Taku country. During his trip he
staked numerous claims, some of
which were for his friends at
Stewart. He reports the ice
breaking up on the river, and advises that no one should attempt
to get into the country until navigation opens on the river in May.
No New Laws Regarding
Salmon Fishing
Victoria, Mar. 13—The Provincial Government has announced
that it will make no effort to regulate operations of salmon fishermen. A recent order-in- council

No Definite Information
Regarding Public
Works Here
Just how much work will be undertaken by the Public Works Department in the Alice Arm district
this year is not at present known,
stated J. A. Anderson during an
interview with the Herald reporting staff.
It has, however, he said, been
decided to complete the work of
diverting the waters of Falls Creek
into the Kitsault River, but this
will only require two or three
weeks. This work will be commenced as soon as warmer weather prevails.
It is hoped that enough money
will be available for the complete
grading of streets on the new
townsite, and that sidewalks can
be constructed on the majority of
Existing roads and trails will be
put in a .state of repair as soon as
weather conditions permit.
The Dolly Varden railway will
also be repaired in order to provide transportation for the Kitsault Valley. Just how extensive
this repair will be has not yet been

Alice Arm Will Enjoy
Prosperous Mining
Unless Unforseen Happens
The stage is all set for another
summer of mining activity in the
Alice Arm district. As soon as the
snow is off the hills the echoing
sounds of machine drills plunging
their bits into the high grade will
be heard. The tap, tap, tap of the
hand driller will again resound
dong the mountain trails, and the
spinning rhythm of the diamond
drill will mingle with the tumbling
waters of mountain streams.
The Britannia Mining & Smelting
Co. Ltd., one of the most successful mining companies of Canada
and Mexico, after examining hundreds of mining properties throughout the continent, have chosen
Alice Arm as the most favorable for
developing big bodies of commercial ore.
Their present plans call for the
developing of three properties, at
least, this year: the Toric, Dolly
Varden and Wolf, and who knows
how many more they will control
before next winter's snow powders
the hill tops?
Adjoining them on the Toric is
the Tiger property, which is bonded
by the Utility Mines No. 1 Ltd.
They have planned to explore the
ore bodies this year by diamond
drilling. The drill can be placed
underground on four levels.
The Kitsault-Eagle Silver Mines
Ltd. have decided to continue development work on the LeRoy and
Silver Cord properties, which are
situated on the north-east fork of
the Kitsault river.
The Esperanza Mining Co. are
busily developing their high grade
ore bodies, but shipping will probably not be undertaken until the
temporary drop in silver is rectified.
It is understood that the Tidewater Molybdenum may be operated this summer, but further news
on this property will be obtainable
Negotiations are under way for
the bonding of several of the copper
properties in the vicinity of the
Kitsault Glacier. It is also reported that several other deals are
in the embryo stage.
A drop in the price of silver does
not greatly effect a first-class mining camp such as Alice Arm. Development work will still go on,
and rising prices will witness the
equipping of properties with mills
and trams. ALICE   ARM   AND   ANYOX   HERALD. Saturday.    March   15.  1930

The usual thing at this time of
the year, when the sun commences
to climb higher into the heavens,
and our thoughts turn towards
another summer's work, is for
every district to cry loud and long
for a big chunk of money for the
building of roads, trails, bridges,
sidewalks, and whatever else can
be located. Unlike the present
state of copper and silver, the demand always exceeds the supply.
More money is demanded than
can be found, and what is not
undertaken one year must necessarily wait until the following year.
During the past two years the favorite plea has been for trunk roads
providing connection with the main
road system of the province. Every
town in the north have pressed
their claims, and some day these
connecting roads will be built
Alice Arm has been rather modest in pressing its claims. Outside
visitors say we are too modest.
We probably are. It is our privilege to be connected with the
interior road system. Interior
connections are essential for our
unfluctuating prosperity. It is now
well known that a road from Alice
Arm to Hazelton presents no difficult engineering problems. It can
be built more cheaply than many
roads that have been built in the
north. It would open up the
mineral district of the Illiance
river valley. It would also provide transportation for the vast
rich alluvial lands of the Naas and
Cranberry river vaileys. It would
eventually be connected with the
Yukon Highway. We will then
be able to ride by car from Alice
Arm to Dawson or to Mexico.
Alice Arm at the present time is
not a large town, but we must
remember that we are not going
to stay small very much longer.
We are going to grow, and our
growth will be accelerated by road
connections with the rest of the
province. We will then pass from
a purely mining town to a town of
importance and permanency. Alice
Arm will become the shipping and
C. P. R. Revenue Drop
Last Year
Canadian Paeific reported gross
revenue for last year of $209,730,-
955, compared with $229,039,296
in 1928. and net earnings from
railway operations, after expenses,
of $43,144,543, against $51,694,451
in 1928.
"It is estimated that at present
there are still some 61,000,000
bushels of grain to be moved from
interior elevators and territory
along the lines of the company,"
Mr. Beatty stated. At this time
last year it was estimated that
about 86,000,000 bushels of grain
remained to be moved in Canadian Pacific territory.
"Due to the slackening off in
business and the present grain situation, approximate earnings of
Canadian Pacific Railway in Jan
uary showed a reduction 20 per
cent compared with last year.
For the first two weeks in February there was some improvement,
the decrease compared with the
corresponding periods last year being 14 per cent.
The head of the linn caught the
office boy telling falsehoods.
"I'm surprised at you," he said.
"Don't you know what they do
with boys who tell lies?"
"Surely do boss," replied the
youngster promptly. "When they
get old enough the firm makes
them purchasing agents."
"John, dear, how do you suppose
those dozens and dozens of empty
bottles ever got into our cellar?"
"Why, I don't know, my dear.
I never bought an empty bottle in
my life."

The annual report of the An
yox General Hospital, published in
our last issue, provided interesting
reading. It showed that no effort
was spared in providing first class
medical attention for the patients
and also every comfort for their
speedy recovery when convales-
cencing. A vivid illustration is
given when the balance sheet
showed a loss of $16,744.80
This loss must be borne by the
Granby Co. It is evident that the
people of the district obtained full
value for their money if they were
unfortunately forced onto a sick
bed during the past year. The
Anyox General Hospital is one of
the greatest assets the district possesses. It is modernly equipped in
every respect. It is staffed with
first class doctors and assistant
nurses and every thing possible is
done for the recovery of patients
The hospital is of great benefit,
not only to the people of Anyox,
but also to Alice Arm. It is a
great relief for the people of the
latter town to know when stricken
with sickness, that in two hours
they can be safely removed to an
up-to-date hospital, and their case
distributing point for a vast hinter-! receive medical attention.

F. E. Woodside Otimis-
tic Regarding
'"More money will be spent in developing British Columbia mines
this year than ever before, according to reports we are receiving,"
declares Mr. F. E. Woodside. secretary of the B. C. Chamber of
Mines. "In addition, there is every likelihood of more prospectors
taking the field than for many
years past. Scores of men will
leave Vancouver for the new1 field
in the Taku river district in the
spring, and other districts are also
attracting more attention.
"The outlook for development
this year was never better," the
secretary continued. "Many properties will be developed in the Hazelton. Smithers and Owen Lake
districts. In the north in the In-
genika a number of men are working steadily and will continue to
do so throughout the year. Coming down the Cariboo, the Cariboo
Gold Quartz at Barkerville and
other iode properties are being
opened up. The payroll in the
Hope district is growing and is
larger than ever before.
"There will also be much activity thoughout East and West Kootenay." said Mr. Woodside, "with
work starting on opening up several new properties. Prospects
are good in the Alice Arm and
Portland Canal district."
Spring Will Not Be Early
The coming spring will not be
rated among the early ones.
Three feet of snow still lies on the
ground at Alice Arm, and due to
the cold nights, it is diminishing
very slowly. This winter has been
one of the longest on record. The
arrival of the robin still seems a
long way off.
