Winnie Mines Ltd. Will
Develop Mohawk
The Winnie Mines Ltd. which
was organized last winter by Mr.
D. Thomson of Prinoe Kupert,
oommenced development of the
Mohawk property this week. Miles
Donald is in charge of operations
until tho arrival of Mr. Thomson,
who is president of the company,
on Monday next.
During the winter of 1911-12 a
shaft was sunk to a depth of 50
feet1 and a drift extending a distance of 135 feet driven to crosscut
the ore. The first work undertaken this year will be the pumping out of the shaft and the
extending of the drift. It is anticipated that only a very short extension of the tunnel is necessary
before the ore vein is encountered.
The Mohawk is situated down
the inlet in the Roundy Creek
section at an elevation of about
2200 feet. The vein for which the
present tunnel is being driven is
two feet wide and is composed of
extremely high grade galena ore,
carrying high silver values, and
also appreciable gold values.
There is an excellent prospect of
developing a good tonnage of ore,
and its close proximity to tide
water will be a great advantage
when shipping is undertaken.
No development work has been
done since 1912, when the Mohawk
Mining Co. composed of Geo. E.
Naden and associates of Prince
Bupert sunk the present shaft and
commenced the tunnel. Mr. Thomson became interested in the prop
erty last year, and finally reached
an agreement with the old shareholders whereby it is now possible
to carry on further development
work, and bring the property to a
producing stage.

Saturday Night Dance Alice
Arm Hotel
A very enjoyable dance was held
at the Alice Arm Hotel on Saturday evening. A large number of
Alice Arm people were present and
also a large contingent of Anyox
visitors, including a number who
are spending summer holidays here
and at Silver City.
The Alice Arm orchestra, with
its lively fox trots and dreamy
waltzs, kept everyone dancing, and
the floor was taxed to capacity
throughout the evening. An appetizing supper, supplied by the
ladies was partaken of at midnight.

On Sunday afternoon a baseball
game was played between Alioe
Arm and the members of the Geo-
logioal and Topographical survey
parties that*are oamped near town.
It was an interesting game, full
of thrills from start to finish. The
map-makers swamped the locals
by the score of 18-9, which wasn't
so bad when one realizes the intensive training of our budding geologists, who, when scaling the high
altitudes, have the advantage of
taking a few lessons from the
mountain goats regarding agility.
Swatting an ordinary baseball
after swatting around a thousand
mosquitoes per day, and cantering
around a base, after climbing about
3000 feet a few times each day certainly should give them some advantage.
The hill climbers piled up no
less than nine runs iu the fourth
inning, which somewhat disheartened the locals. They strove to
equalize but the grade was too

Elks' Ball Team Suffers
Two Defeats
The Concentrator ball team defeated the Elks' nine on Friday last,
five runs to one in a loosely played
contest. Cook started on the
mound for the losers, but retired in
favor of Hopkinson in the fifth,
after the opposition had got to him
for four hits and four runs. One
hit, coupled with a couple of errors,
gave the Millmen their fifth run.
Ballentyne replaced Hoppy in the
sixth and held the opposition hitless
for the remainder of the game.
The Elks had plenty of chances
to score, but poor base running and
inability to hit in the pinches was
the cause of their downfall. Musser went the entire route for the
On Monday evening the Miners
handed the Elks an artistic trimming to the tune of nine to nil.
Ten hits off Ballentine with a flock

herd could do with Lazoreek. Allen

Business of the Toric Mines Co
Ltd. as mine operators is suspended
and the company is awaiting the
fufilment of the terms of the contract with the Britannia Mining &
Smelting Company," states T. C.
Carling, Toric president, in his
annual report to the shareholders.
Notices have been issued for the
eighth annual meeting to be held at
Room 225 Pacific Buildings 744
West Hastings street, Thursday,
July 4, at 2.30 p.m.
Mr. Carling's statement to shareholders follows:
"In submitting the annual statement the directors have thought it
advisable to have the company's
financial standing shown as on May
31, instead of December 31 which
heretofore has been the annual
"In accordance with the authority given to the directors at the
extraordinary general meeting held
on April 11, 1929, an arrangement
was entered into between the Toric
company and the Britannia Mining
& Smelting Company, for the latter
to develop the Toric property, and
the Britannia company to form a
new company to buy the property
should the development work they
have undertaken satisfactorily prove
the mine. The terms of this agreement have already been before you
and approved.
"The immediate benefit the company derived under this agreement
was an advance of money by the
Britannia company amounting to
$21,500 which, with $17,500
advanced by the English sharehold
ers, was used to pay the company's
creditors. It may be stated here
for your information, that the trade
creditors assisted the directors out
of the difficult situation in which
the company found itself by agreeing to a reduction in the amounts
owing them.

Homer Clay of Anyox
Married At Rupert
A pretty wedding was performed
by Rev. James B. Gibson, rector of
St. Andrew's Anglican Church in
Prince Rupert, when Miss Thelma
Smith, daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
T. D. Smith, Prince Rupert, became the bride of Mr. Homer Clay,
son of Mr. and Mrs. Charles H.
Clay, Anyox. The ceremony took
place at the home of the bride's
parents, 311 Fifth Avenue East,
Prince Rupert, under a white wedding bell in the living room, which
was daintily decorated with seasonable flowers.
The bride wore an attractive grey
and blue ensemble of gorgette,
having for head-dress a rope of
brilliants, and carried a bouquet of
pink carnations and gypsophila.
She was attended, as bridesmaid,
by her sister who wore a frock of
green flat crepe. Mr. Ralph Smith,
brother of the bride was groomsman.
A delightful wedding supper was
served after the ceremony and the
evening spent in music and dancing.
Mr. and Mrs. H. Clay will reside
on Fourth Avenue, Prince Rupert.
Mrs. Matt Bell wishes to convey
her sincere thanks to her many
friends for their kind expressions
of sympathy and assistance during
her recent sad bereavement.
The girls' baseball game arranged for Wednesday night has
been postponed, due to sickness of
some of the Mine girls. It is hoped
that it will be possible to play the
game at an early date, as many are
anxious to see the girls in action.

Wealth of Illiance Valley
Shown By Massive
Some magnificent samples of
high grade galena ore were brought
to town last week-end by Marshall
Smith, They were taken from the
Falcon Group which is situated
near the source of the Illiance
River. The samples prove conclusively that this section, which has
been neglected of late years contains bodies of high grade ore that
are worth investigating.
One of the samples which is of
considerable size is on view in T.
W. Falconer's store. It is composed of massive ore, and is among the
best samples brought to town, and
this district is second to none in
regard to ore samples.
The vein from which the samples
were taken has a width of 20 inches
and lying immediately alongside is
another vein also 20 inches wide,
carrying copper, silver and gold
values, but not of such a high
grade. The vein has been traced
a distance of 300 feet on the surface and several open cuts were
made over this distance. A sample,
similar to those brought down was
sent out for assaying some time
ago and tbe following satisfactory
results were obtained: 260 ozs.

Better transportation is badly needed in this
section. The Falcon Group is
owned by Marshall Smith and W.
B. Bower of Alice Arm. It is situated on the Illiance-Nass divide,
a distance of about 16 miles from
Alice Arm.
Ore outcrops, similar to the Falcon exist for a distance of four
miles in a southerly direction, and
many of these properties could apparently be worked at a profit if
the ore could be conveniently
It is probable that the Illiance
River section will be provided with
a wagon road in the near future.
In fact, a commencement may be
made next year, Should it materialize it would galvanize this neglected section into activity and
several properties would undoubtedly be developed and brought to
the producing stage.

Government   Will Sell
Agricultural Land
British Columbia has almost half
a million acres of good agricultural
land to sell along the northern line
of the Canadian National between
Prince George and Smithers, Hon.
William Atkinson stated recently.
He said the Government would consider immediately systematic efforts
to dispose of the land as rapidly as
possible to settlers.
Mr. Atkinson explained that a
great part of the land had reverted
to the Crown for non-payment of
taxes. Some of it was exceedingly
choice from an agricultural standpoint.
It is expected that the areas will
be offered at attractive prices.
Canadian Mineral Production
Tho Dominion Bureau of Statistics in a review of the mineral production of Canada for 1928 shows
the aggregate value of the output
of Canada's mines amouted to
$273,400,000, representing an increase of more than 10 per cent over
the total for the previous year
Though the records of 1928 portray a remarkable growth
as compared with 1927, yet the
great majority of the more important mines in the newly discovered
areas are not yet on a production
basis, and the actual trend of the
present development will not be reflected in statistics of mineral production before 1930 or 1931.

Britannia Considers 500
Prospects, Develops 3
Last year the Britannia Company
considered some five hundred prospects, of which decidedly less than
half the number were deemed worthy of field examination. Of these,
only about seven justified development, and finally the seven dwindled
to three of sufficient merit to warrant intensive exploration. But a
ratio of three good prospects in five
hundred is rather above the average British Columbia Miner

Future Profits Granby
Co. Will Probably
Be Higher
Presenting a review of the current finances of the Granby Consolidated Mining, Smelting &
Power Company, Barron's Weekly
makes the prediction that operat
ing earnings for the second quarter
of this year should be the highest
for any three months in the company's history.
Operating profits after taxes but
before depreciation, which is inordinately high for Granby, so that
operating earnings are more typical
of what the company is really doing, should be around $2.75 a share
on 450,000 shares outstanding.
This will compare with $2.09 in
first quarter on a similar basis.
Operating profits for April and
May already are more than $2 a
share, exceeding the first three
months of the year.
While operating earnings after
taxes but before depreciation promise to be around $10 a share in
1929, against $6.60 in 1928, and
Granby could increase the dividend
rate at the next meeting, June 19,
it is probable the rate will remain
and that the regular $1.75 will be
declared at that time.
Granby is producing copper at
both Anyox and Allenby properties at average cost of slightly
under 10 cents a pound. This is
after local taxes but before depreciation. It has been making considerable improvements charged
directly to operating cost, especially
the opening up and development
of the Bonanza ore body at Anyox.
Consequently operating cost is
close to what cost of producing
copper would be with normal depreciation charge included. Gran
by, owing to obsolescence of plant,
changes in metallurgical practice,
etc., has abnormally large bookeep
ing write-offs for depreciation and
.depletion. This is why it is declar-
ings its dividends as capital disbursements without any oharge
for income tax.
