Open Air Dance and
Star Ball Game Is
It seems apparent to the Tennis
Club that their friendly Weather
Man must have gone off on summer holidays quite suddenly.
What could be more ideal for an
open air dance than the dear
moonlight evening of Monday last,
and who would have thought that
such a beautiful clear sky could be
marred by heavy black clouds so
soon after. It was with high
hopes that the Tennis Club members all got together and worked
and planned long hours in preparation for the anticipation of a real
good time to follow, on Wednesday night. Nor was it less disappointing to the members of the
General Office and General Store
staff whose friendly rivalry for
premier honors on the baseball
field has been well known since
their entertaining contest staged
last year.
However the good work was not
all wasted. The preparations
were partially transferred to the
Gymnasium, where it was cool and
dry. In spite of the showery
weather a happy crowd gathered
there and tripped the light fan.
tastic to the snappy music of the
Variety Orchestra until midnight,
and a good time was had by all.
The Tennis Club wish especially
to thank all those who helped so
willingly to make their dance a
success. The ladies and men who
were members of the Club, and also non-members who gave their
time most willingly and effectively.
Should the Weather Man decide
to take only one week's holiday
and return to the job on Monday
next it is expeeted that the open
air dance will yet be held on the
courts. Watch for the notices.
The General Office and General
Store Baseball teams will also
entertain the fans on Wednesday
night July 15th. at 7 p.m., if Jupe
Pluvius is away.
Large Attendance at Funeral
of Mrs. J. A. Anderson
The late Mrs. J. A. Anderson of
Alioe Arm was laid to rest last
Sunday afternoon, at the Fair-
view cemetery, Prince Eupert. A
large number of friends of deseas
ed attended the funeral in order to
pay their last respeots. The
Funeral Service was oonduoted by
Canon Rushbrook who had been a
friend of the deceased for a number of years, . A large number of
beautiful flowers deoorated the
casket as a tribute to her memory.
The pall pearers were: T. W. Falconer. J. Greer, Geo. Tite, John
Manson. W. Millar. T. J. Shenton.
Visit to Toric Mine Confirm All Previous
Reports of Richness and Size of Ore Body
Survey Made of all Activities, both Uderground and Outside.
Toric Will Rank Among Big Producers
If you have not yet received a
copy of the Prize List for the
Prince Rupert Annual Exhibition
you are asked to write for one to
the Office, Box 707, Prinoe Rupert.
Write for Entry Forms without
delay.
It was the pleasure of the editor
during the week to visit the Toric
mine and witness the developing
of that now famous property at
oloso range.
The company speeder, which
makes a daily trip to Camp 8, left
Alioe Arm shortly after 8 a.m.
carrying six passengers and 1000
pounds of general freight.
The ride from Alice Arm to
Camp 8, over the Dolly Varden
railway on a bright summer morning, such as was the case last Tuesday, was most enjoyable. The
scenery along the banks of the Kitsault is rugged aud magnificient,
and for those who desire thrills
their wish can be gratified generously by gazing to the depths of a
few of the canyons passed en route.
On the way up we noticed the
new storage buildings for supplies
for the La Rose mine, which is
now being developed, and which is
connected by a good horse trail
from the Dolly Varden railway.
A Rhort distance past the La
Rose. Robt. Henderson was busily
engaged in driving a tunnel on his
property. The portal of. the tunnel is close to the track and good
progress is being made. The new
tent house of Tony Surbich was
conspicious near West Creek. He
is also driving a tunnel near the
railway traok, and expects to develop a large ore body in the near
future.
On arrival at Camp 8 we
traversed the new government
road, orossing the river on the new
suspension bridge which was completed last year, and which is of
great assistance to mining property owners in the upper Kitsault
country.
A distance of three quarters of
a mile brought us to the Torio, and
the first object to catch the eye on
approaching was the big ore dump,
which we later explored with excellent results, by discovering
samples of native silver and galena ore.
Prior to reaching the camp
buildings we came upon the excavations that are now under way
for the concentrating mill. A
hundred yards further brought
us to the camp, and although we
expected to see a change since our
last visit, we did not expect to behold such a number of new buildings as has been recently con-
stucted. The compactness, cleanliness and general air of acti vifcy are
among the first things that strike
the visitor as he tops the slope
and enters the camp.
The buildings at the camp comprise  a   compressor   house   and
blacksmith shop, bunk house, a
stable for three horses and a feed
box, wood shed, meat house, etc.,
also the kitchen aud mess house to
which an addition is being built
and which is almost completed.
This addition comprises two
stories, the ground floor will be
used as a mess house, and the upper floor as a storage room for supplies.
Power is supplied to the drill
in the mine and also at the excavation of the mill site by a Sullivan portable compressor, which
supplies 154 ou. ft. of air per minute, aud the drill now being used
iii the mine is a Sullivan D. X. 64,
using 1| hollow round steel.
The chief object of our visit was
to look over the underground
workings, . and it was with
pleasure that we took our light
and in company of general manager A. C. H. Gerhardi, loft
the bright sunlight and entered
the bowels of the mountain.
For about 80 feet the crosscut
tunnel went through slide rock,
which necessitated close timbering,
The prevailing country rock was
then traversed to a point 215 feet
from tlie portal,where the foot wall
of the ore body can be easily recognized by the layman, as it is so

Development Work
Commenced On
Matilda Property
The Kitsault River Mining and
Development Co. commenced their
programme of development work
during the week. A large stock of
mining supplies arrived on Monday's boat, and on Tuesday this
was freighted over the Dolly
Varden railway to the end of the
steel, from whioh point pack
horses will convey it to the Matilda, whioh is situated at the Kitsault Glacier.
Everything is now in readiness
for a commencement of development work, and a crew of men will
be employed under the supervision
of O. Flint. The first work to be
carried out will be surface stripping of the ore bodies, in order to
determine where tunnels shall be
driven at a later date, and also to
ascertain more fully the width and
dip of the ore bodies.
The Matilda is in the midst of
the rioh mineral zone of- the Kitsault Glaoier distriot. The property has a number of first class
ore ledges, and it is expected that
these will be proven up to such an
extent as to leave no doubt as to
the value of the property.
Reports reached Alioe Arm on
Friday that a new strike of steel
galena ore had been made on the
Standard property by the Granby
Co.
The exact size and location could
not be ascertained from the
Granby Co. offloials. at the time pf
going to press. •

Visiting Yacht Admired
By Anyox Seafarers
On Tuesday afternoon a white
pointed, pretty lined yacht hove in
sight in Goose Bay, turned around
and went to the east side of the
Coke Plant and tied up there.
During the short period the yacht
was in the harbor its- beauty attracted the attention of many
people. Its name was "Alician."
Its length 115 ft., beam 20 ft.,
draws 7ft, 6 in water, cruises 12
knots, 2 Winton Diesel engines of
150 h.p. each, carries 4,200 gallons
of fuel oil, 2,000 gallons of fresh
water, all machinery operated by
electricity, all fittings of brass,
even to the electrio winch drums.
Hot water system and wireless
aboard. The boat cost over $100,
000.00. The owner of this most
desirable boat was C. W. Wylie, of
the Todd Drydook, Seattle.
The members of the party
aboard were, A. W. Leonard, H.
F. Ostrander, and Capt. M. B.
Jensen,
This party of well known gentlemen were taking a quiet summer
oruise iu these northern waters
and visiting points of interest iu
Alaska and northern B. C. We
hope they enjoyed their, visit to
Anyox.
F. L. Weber, teller at the Bank
of Commerce left for Bouth on Saturday. He will spend several
weeks holiday in the south.
Mrs. Leslie is visiting with Mrs.
J. Barclay, at their home at Silver

Mixed Doubles Tennis
Tournament Great
Success
Owing to the full programme arranged for by the Community
League for the Dominion Day celebration, it was decided to hold the
Mixed Doubles Tournament, which
was part of this programme on the
following Sunday. July 5th.
The weather man was again
kindly disposed towards the tennis
players, and a very pleasant day
was spent at the courts by all participants. The games were well
contested by the nine couple3 taking part, and keen interest shown
throughout the day.. Mrs. L. F.
Champion and Mr. H. J. Ballion
played an exceptionally steady
game, dropping only one point below perfect score. When the
handicaps were added at the end
of the day's play, it was found
that first prizes were won by Mrs.
H. Sawrey and Mr. C. Baillie, who
played consistently well all day
and very much deserve their success. Second prizes went to Mrs.
McTaggart and Mr. J. M. Dunn,
the latter being one of the newer
players, who has improved so much
this season that he was able to upset the handicap figures.
The main feature of the day's
entertainment was the delightful
afternoon tea served to the members of the Club by the President
and his wife, Mr. and Mrs. R. O.
Cutler, who were ably assisted by
Mrs. H. O. Jones. The tea table
was tastefully decorated with
flowers, and tea and cakes were
very much enjoyed. A hearty
vote of thanks was extended by all
present to Mr. and Mrs. Cutler for
their kind efforts, which contributed-greatly to the day's success.
The prizes for this tournament
were donated by the Community
League, and were presented to the
successful contestants above mentioned, by Mrs.' R. O. Cutler, at
the conclusion of the day's play.
WELL  PLEASED WITH
MINERAL SHOWINGS
Geo. E. Winkler, who has spent
the past two weeks in the Alice
Ann district examining mining
properties, left on Friday for Stewart. While here, Mr. Winkler obtained valuable data on the different properties, and was enthusiastic over the fine ore showings on
several properties, especially the
Wolf, which he considered one of
the biggest ore bodies in the province.
CARD  OF  THANKS
Mr. J. A. Anderson and family
wish to- express their deep
gratitude to all those who were
so kind to them during their recent
sad bereavement, and also for the
beautiful floral tributes presented
by their many freinds.
Mr. Rockford, who is a member
of the firm of H. W. M. Rolston
and Co., mining brokers of Stewart, was a visitor to Anyox and
Alice Arm during last week end
on business. ALICE   ARM   AND   ANYOX  HERALD,   Monday.   July  13,

Trip to the Toric Mine
Described in Detail
Continued from Page 1
well defined. We followed the
foot wall in a westerly direction
for a distance of 50 feet, and then
traversed the ore in a horizontal
direction for a distance of 97 feet'
at which point the hanging wall
is exposed, and which dips at an
angle of 45 degrees into the hill.
This crosscut tunnel exposes the
actual width of the ore body,
which is 64| feet.
Returning to the main crosscut
tunnel, we then followed
the No. 1 east drift, which
is developing the ore body east ofthe fault, and the writer saw for
himself the galena and native silver ore that is being intersected at
each round.
From the amount of work that
has been done by intersecting the
ore boby in these crosscuts, and
the amount of lateral work done it
is plain to the layman that there is
a considerable tonnage of ore exposed, which will run into hundreds of thousands of tons.
Further development work will
be done on the east side of the
fault. In an easterly direction the
backs become greater which gives
a greater ore tonnage.
After examining and marvelling
at the mineral wealth of the mine,
an examination of the concentrating mill excavation was made.
This work is now well under way.
Its location is about 80 feet south
of the portal of the tunnel Present plans oall for the construction
of a mill having a daily capacity of
fifty tons. Excavations,, however,
will be made so that the capacity
ofthe mill oan be increased to one
hundred tons per day.
The Homestake Mining and Development Co. own two gasoline
speeders, which transport supplies
from Alice Arm through to Camp
8. This mode of transportation
has given every satisfaction, the
cost being exceedingly low.
The development of the Torio is
in charge of A. C. H. Gerhardi,
who holds the position of general
manager, and to whom great
oredit is due for the efficient manner
in whioh he has handled affairs at
the Toric since the company bonded the property last August.
Great efficiency has been shown
both underground and outside, and
we feel sure that under the present management the Toric will be
developed along sane lines, and
that ultimately the Torio will develop into one of the big wealth
produoing mines of the province.
Since ore was encountered last fall
no dead work has been done, and
the blocking out of the ore body
has been carried on since that
time. For the amount of work
done and the ore tonnage blooked
out, the Toric probably holds the
reoord for the development of a
new property in British Columbia.
Forestry Department Issues
Fire Warning
The Provincial Forestry Officials
are sending out a warning regarding the forest fire situation which
is becoming exceedinly grave owing to the present dry hot weather.
Weather reports forecast a continuance of the heat with decreasing humidity resulting in dangerous conditions with regard to forest fires. In spite of this however,
conditions are at the moment very
satisfactory but great caution is
required. So far this year there
have been 488 fires reported as
against 837 last year, but in 1923
the number of fires at the same
date had only been 393. Campers
ind others frequenting the woods
at this time of year are asked to
use great care.

No Stamps Necessary
Small Checks
Foi
Much of the annoyance that has
been caused the public by the affixing
of stamps to small checks has been
eliminated. Under the regulations
that have' been enforced up to this
time a two-cent excise stamp had to
be affixed on all checks, postal orders,
und other negotiable paper when the
unount was up to fifty dollars, with
in additional two cents for every
fifty dollars over that amount.
Beginning July 1st. there was a
modification of the law. From that
date all checks, money orders, travellers' cheques, postal notes and the
iike will not require a two-cent stamp
to be affixed whent the amount does
not exceed five dollars.
Among others who have recently moved back to Copper Mountain are the families of Mr. W.
Munroe and Andrew Anderson.
Mr. Corsi lias also moved up from
Allenby and will fill the requirements of the camp in the dairy
line;
In order to permit their employees to bring their familes in, the
Allenby Copper Company have already allotted several houses. It
is understood that this was not to
have been done until after construction work had been completed, but the change, was made for
the convenience of their staff.
