The Lion Property
Looking Very
is
The Lion property which is situated above the town of Alice Arm
is looking very promising. Since
solid ore was encountered the
tunnel has been driven a distance
of sixteen feet, and the hanging
wall has been followed. The lead
i8 sixteen feet in width and some
fine samples of ore has been brought
down. Average samples of pre
have been taken for a distance of
sixteen feet along the tunnel and
also from the face of the drift, but
assay returns are not yet available.)
About three tons of high; grade ore,
taken front a small vein- in cross-
cutting the lead is stored at'the
mine. ; ^™
Owing to •> the lateness of the
season it was found impossible to
rawhide any quantity-of ore down
the hill this spring and work has
been suspended" by the owners
until later in the year. The property is owned by Niel Forbes, Fred
Martinson, Mat Gregor and Heotor
McColl.
The Esperanza mine is located7
on tlie same hill as the Lion T»rop:.
erty and numerous small veins of
high grade silver ore have been]
located on several other properties.1
but the ore body on the Lion is'
the largest yet located on the hill.1
It is hoped thattit will be possible!
for the owners of the Lion to
develop the property this year, and)
it is very probable that if development work is done that a consider^
able body of shipping ore will be;
proven i up'. The property is*
ideally situated for shipping, being
only two-and-half miles from the
town of Alice Arm and less than
three-and-half miles from the government wharf.
Activities of the Recreation Department of the
Anyox Community
ue.
The Anyox Community League
during the past year proved to be
a live organization and the following list of their activities shows
that the community as a whole
were studied at airtimes.
Thequestion of a children's playground at the mine was taken up
and the officials of the Granby Co.
were interviewed regarding the
same. *">
Seats wore placed along the
'Mine Road for the convenience of
pedestrians'.
A children's playground was
made and equipment erected at the
beach." Swings, etc. were repaired
at the playground on the flat.
Baseball and- football leagues
were formed, and a very successful
season was held.
The senior baseball League consisted of three teams, the Smelter,
lElks and Mine.    The mine won
nasium, and the Gym. is becoming
very popular, as many as fifty
being there at one time.
A tobaggon slide was built for
the children near Mr. Munroe's
residence.
Get on the Provincial
Voters' List Now
Those who are not on .the provincial voters' list for. this district
are reminded that, applications
must be filed with Mr. John
Conway, registrar of Voters, Anyox
B. 0., on or before the 3rd. of
April. _    . '
Because electors who were on
the voters' list in the federal election and./exercised their franchise,
is no guarantee that their names
will appear on the. provincial lists,;
because these are separate. Those
wishing to be protected in that
respect should apply to the government agent at Anyox, Who will
supply the necessary forms and
place names on the list.

A great deal has been said and
written during the past few months
regarding the necessity of more
roads and trails in order to open
up for development the vast tracts
of rich mineral and agricultural
lands in northern British Columbia,
that are now lying idle simply for
the need of transportation.
Mr. H. F. Kergin, local member of the legislature, has advocated
at different times, the necessity of
building a road from some point on
the G. T. P. Railway near Hazel-
ton, north to Whitehorse, and to
connect the Naas Valley, Alice
Arm and Stewart with the Trunk
road running north. Such a road
would undoubtedly be of immense
advantage to northern B. C. and
will receive the unanimous support
of the residents of the. northern
coast towns, provided construction
of the branch roads is commenced
at the same time the trunk road is
building, so that we will not have
to wait ten or twenty years before
we are connected up.
The Portland Canal News has
also given considerable publicity in
the matter of building roads and
trails in the north, and it also advocates the connecting up of the
different trail systems of Stewart,
Naas River, Alice Arm and the
interior of British Columbia.
The Herald has, since its first
issue last June, advocated the necessity of more roads and * trails in
the north, but unlike all other
papers, we do not receive the
support of a citizens organization,
we have therefore been forced to
play a lone hand, and the history
of any western town shows that
the same results can not be obtained, as when (he local paper
receives the solid support of the
citizens of the district in which it is
published. We are heartily in
favor of the proposal of the Portland Canal News, in connecting
up the different towns on the
coast with roads and trails and
alto in having connections with the
interior. An enormous country,
rich in minerals and agriculture
—would at the same time be opened
up and the money spent by the
government, would, in a few years
be repaid a thousand times.
The Hon. T. D. Pattullo,
Minister of Lands, has in hand an
ambitious colonization scheme. He
proposes to import from Great
Britain approximately 700 farmers
with their families and settle them
in the vicinity of Stuart Lake, in
the interior of B. C, adjacent to
the G. T. P. Railway. Mr.
Pattullo says that if British Columbia is going to keep pace with the
rest of the western provinces that
our vacant lands must be settled,
and that the more settlers we have
the less the taxation per capita.
We are in accord with any scheme
that will settle our vacant lands
and turn a wilderness into a
garden, but why settle-them all in
the interior? there is, in the Naas
Valley one of the finest tracts of
agricultural land to be found anywhere, and the climate is perfect,
proof of which is shown by the
variety of produce grown. Mr.
Pattullo has no doubt heard of the
Naas Valley, but he probably does
not know its possibilities. An
agricultural expert should be sent
■into the valley as soon as the snow
is off the. ground and make a
thorough, examination of the
country, Transportation should
be provided and trail connections
at- least, should be made with
Alice Arm this year. Alice Arm
is the nearest shipping point for
the produce of the valley, and a;
road should be constructed between
these two points first. If it is
found necessary later on, to construct a road to connect with some
town on the G. T. P. Railway,
Stewart, or any mother town, then
the road should be built, so that all
points in the valley have an outlet.
The Terrace News advocates
building a railroad from Terrace
into the valley. . The distance
would be about sixty miles and an
additional ninety miles from
Terrace to Prince Rupert, whioh
would mean that the farmer would
have to pay railway freight rates
for 150 miles and steamship rates
for 100 miles in order to get his
produce to Anyox. The distance
to Alice Arm would be about 22
miles and an additional 18 miles to
An:'ox. The Portland Canal News
in a recent editorial says "British
Columbia is today pauperized by
railways built to satisfy voters."
The government should, as soon as
possible provide transportation- for
the Naas Valley, and the cheapest
route should be built.
April 3rd. is the last day to get
on the Provincial Voters List.
Don't wait until the last day. Get
on now.
The drill that will be used in oil
boring operations at Terrace, by
Boyle Bros., of Spokane, will be an
ordinary'diamond'drill, such as is
used in drilling for minerals. The
drill, which has been stored at
Anyox is oapable of drilling 2000
feet. The drill is located on the
property of Geo. Keith, just west
of the towtf. Boyle Bros, are
doing the drilling, for the Terraoe
Oils Co. Mr. Jesson and Mr. Glen
Rash, both well known in Alice
Arm and Anyox, are in charge of
operations.

day, during 1921 was 328. The
total, tonnage mined was 15,129
tons;   the total length of tunnel

The Indian property is situated
at Stewart, On the Canadian side
Of the Salmon River and is a short
distance northwest of,the Premier
mine. Considerable work has been
done on the property,, at different
periods,
A syndicate composed of a group
, of Seattle business men have purchased a three-quarter interest in
the Alaska-Premier mining property, a group of eleven olaims on the
Alaska side of the Salmon River.
The property is less than a mile
distant from the Premier mine and
the geology is said to be identical.

Rain and Snowfall in
the Naas Valley
It is generally believed that the
Naas Valley, owing to its proximity to the ooast, has nearly as much
rain, such, however, is hot the case,
'as the records kept by Mr. A. F.
Priestley, of Aiyansh, which is
printed below, show. He says, the
rain is pretty well scattered
throughout the year, October being
generally the- wettest month. The
snow usually settles to a depth of
about three feet and generally does
not oome until December.

ESSAY ON PANTS
Pants are made for men and not
for women. Women are made for
men, and not for pants.'
When a man pants for a woman
and a woman pants for a man, that
makes a pair of pants.
Pants are like molasses; they are
thinner in hot weather and thicker
in cold weather.
* ~ -
There has been much discussion
as to whether pants are singular or
plural. Seems to us that when
men wear pants it is plural, and
when they don't wear pants it is;
singular.
If you want to make pants last,
make the coat first. '

An outstanding feature of the
meeting was an exceedingly able
address given by Mr. "W. Robertson, a member of the public school
staff, Mr. Robertson's remarks
were in the1 nature of suggestion's
as to the functions of the Parents-
Teachers Association.      .
"Choosing an object for whioh
to work said the speaker, is of
prime importance. Let the child
be our object, and in Striving for
the welfare of the child in school
and at play let us work in wholehearted co-operation to the interest
6f the object we have ohosen.
It was pointed out that organized
and supervised play in a playground adequately fitted for both
the older and younger pupils was,
the only sane and sitisfactory
solution to increased efficiency in
the school-room. By this method
of controlling surplus youthful
energy, questions of class room
discipline were modified and the
whole moral tone of a school was
raised. Beautifioation of school
interiors as well as the playground
tended toward a correlated aesthe-
tio development which formed an
essential quality in education noted
the speaker.
Such a thought*provoking talk
as Mr. Robertson gave is both
timely and appreciated as it tends
to arouse such associations as ours
from an apathy towards Our real,
function in the community, and

The Council at present is canvassing the town in order to obtain
the opinion of the j people of just
what form of building will meet
the greatest need of the town.
The suggestions so received will be
considered and probably a referendum will ''be taken to express a
definite opinion.
Mr. R Armour- was appointed

Polytechnic.
A considerable portion of the
order for new books for the library
has been filled and the balance is

The second game was. a very,

a high grade. The Beach team
which has not yet been defeated,

Mineral Wealth
A greater interest is being taken
in the mining industry in the Dominion of Canada each year. The
Canadian Institute of Mining and
Metallurgy are doing a lot of good
for the advancement of the industry and it is hoped that they will
have all the co-operation and help
possible from the federal government and also from the different
provincial governments in the fostering of the chief industry of the
world, so that Canada can take
her place in the future as the
leading mineral producing country.
The history of the world shows
that since ancient times, nations
that had minerals within their
borders were the leading nations
of their time. Great Britain was
the first nation of modem times to
develaijrher mineral resources on a
large scale and the British Empire
was built up with the coal and
iron mines of Great Britain.
Those were the two minerals that
created the wealth of the country
and made it possible for her to
keep the flag flying in every
quarter of the globe. The past
power of Germany was built up in
forty years from the coal mines in
Westphalia and the iron mines in
Alsace-Lorraine, the two last
named provinces she wrested from
France at the close of the Franco-
Prussian war, simply for the mineral wealth they contained, and
Germany Would be a great power
today if she had followed the paths
of peace and. not dreamed of
world conquest. The present
wealth of the United States is due
to a large extent to the varied
mineral wealth of the country, the
chief of which is coal, iron'and
copper.
Minerals are the wealth producer of any nation, and with them
there is no limit to its greatness.
It is estimated that there is one
thousand million tons of coal
reserves in Canada, this includes
all classes of coal and lignite; it is
nearly sixty per cent, greater than
tjie entire coal reserves of. Europe,
and is one sixth of the coal reserves
of the world. Vast reserves of
metals, have been proven up
throughout Canada. This country
started to develop her mineral
wealth about fifty years later than
the United States, and Canada' is
just beginning to realize the importance of her mineral wealth.
British Columbia is especially rich
in minerals of all descriptions and
the government should do everything possible for the expansion of
the industry. This district, is the
latest mineral zone to be developed
in the province. During the last
ten years the towns of Anyox,
Alice Arm and Stewart have come
into existence, and all are dependent upon mining. The whole district
is sadly in need of more roads and
trails and the government should
make a special effort to build tham
and also remove any obstacles that
is retarding the progress of any one
community. •
Money Available for B.
C. Mining Properties
That tl'ere is unlimited capital
available in-the United States for
the development of worthy British
Columbia enterprises when they
are well presented and backed up
by sufficient engineering qualifications is the opinion of Glenville A.
Collins, of Vancouver, who has
been in the east. on mining business. He found a pronounced'
interest in British Columbia mining
matters, owing to what Americana
declare are the splendid mining-
laws and reputation for ' clean
dealing, and the records of some of
the big producing mines of the
province. He said that unquestionably there is a big mining boom
to follow soon, and no one need fear
to go ahead with honest and merited development..
It is reported by recent arrivals
in Dawson that rich new silver
strikes have been made at Keno
Hill. /High grade veins have been
opened on the Croesus, Cy8**!
Gulch, Gambler Gulch, Slate Creek
and Stane claims. The Slate
Creek company are opening up a
vein five feet wide of steel galena,
ore at a depth of sixty-five feet.
The, Yukon Gold Company is
shipping 3000 tons of ore' this'
winter from vein No. 9 on the Rioo
claim. On the Sadie claim the
Treadwell people have two shafts
down about 100 feet. Tread wells
have several million tons of ore
blocked out for removal from the
McQuest'Cenclop claims adjoining
It is expected that the population of Mayo Camp, which has
already half the population of the
Yukon Territory, will be more
than doubled this summer.
