Cassiar Gold
Strike May
Be Big One
Mr. Jack McDonald Has Just
Returned
Alice Arm Will
Be Big Camp
Mining Engineer Gives Reason Why Different   Camps
Are Held Back
Richness Proved Next Summer
The new placer gold strike made
in the Cassiar country is a reliable
one says Mr. Jack McDonald who
returned to Alioe Arm last Saturday, having come direct from there.
Mr. McDonald, in an interview
with the Herald says that the
strike was made by William Grady
on Gold Pan Creek, which is a
tributary of the Little Eagle.
Grady obtained considerable
coarse gold, but did not do much
work as his supplies ran low.
Mr. McDonald, who was in the
vicinity when the strike was made
was fortunate enough to stake No.
5 claim, 1000 feet from the discovery. Old placer miners who
were quickly on the ground claim
it is the best strike they have seen
for years. The richness of the
strike, however, has yet to be
proven, but it is possible that it
may equal some of the old diggings
whioh were immensely rich.
Ocild wasfirst disoover-ed - uu i-foe
Cassiar in the,70-. • dit 1873 gold
was found on Dease Creeki Thibet
Creek aud McDame Creek. These
creeks yielded about $4,000,000
each, and as much gold was taken
from the Cassiar as from the, Cariboo country.
The new strike was made a distance of sixty miles from the old
diggings, in an air line, being
across a lake and a range of mountains, and Mr. McDonald is of the
opinion that this country was overlooked in the early days. The
strike is 100 miles east of Telegraph
Creek.
When Mr. McDonald left there
three weeks ago, 150 claims had
been staked, some of them above
timber line, where coarse gold was
found. The strike is at an eleva^
tion of 4000 feet and there was a
foot of snow on the ground three
weeks ago.
Mr. McDonald says there is
plenty of ground open on the tributaries, and gold is found there.
He states, however, that it is
almost impossible to get there this
winter, as the Stikine river navigation is closed and will not open
until about May 10th. It is a hard
country, even in summer time and
anyone not used to it or without
ample meatis would suffer hardships. ,
Mr. McDonald is well known in
the district, being engineer on the
launches Awake and Cuprite, pre
vious to his going north this year.
That Alice Arm will some day
be an important mining camp, is
the opinion of Mr. W. J. Elmendorf, mining engineer, of Seattle,
who spent last week examining the
Sunset and other properties in the
Roundy Creek distriot.
Mr. Elmendorf was particularly
pleased with the Roundy Creek
country from a mining point of
view. He stated that the country
contains some well defined ore
ledges, and looks very promising.
In addition to examining the
Sunset, he also made an examination of the Theda Bara, which
lies above the Sunset and is owned
by Messrs. F. Jones and R. Ingraham.
In regard to mining conditions
in general, Mr. Elmendorf stated
that money was becoming easier
to obtain for investments! He expected conditions in the mining industry to improve, and saw no
reason why Alice Arm should not
benefit from the general prosperity.
-ii&Hitrossed the point, however,
that the days of big cash payments
on a prospect was gone. What
companies now wanted was time,
in order to develop a property, and
satisfy themselves that the tonnage
and ore values were there. He
said that high prioes for properties
were holding up a lot of mining
camps today.
Mr. Adkins, mining engineer of
Seattle, who also inspected the
Sunset, was favorably impressed
with all he saw. He accompanied
Mr. Emnendorf south on Friday,

An excellent supper was served
at 10 o'clock, after whioh dancing
was indulged in until the wee
8ma' hours.* The crowd was considerably augmented for the dance
and music was dispensed by
Messrs. Austin, Armstrong and
Waterman, to the satisfaction of
everybody. The P. T. A. executive are to be congratulated on the
success of the evening,
Meeting to be Held
The next regular meeting of the
P. T. A. will be held in the New

AUCE ARM NOTES
Numerous Small Camps Operating Down The Inlet
Although the present price of
logs are not very high, logging
operations in the vicinity of Alice
Arm continues to be active.
Numerous small camps are being
'operated down the inlet, some outfits commencing this week, and the
oamp of the Abbottsford Logging
Co., is still operating.
Six local men, comprising Ole
Aker, J. Hanna, J. Dolburg, Ed.
Peterson, Gus, Lindburg and Carl
Coleman, are expected to complete
operations this week, when they
will finish booming the logs.
They have been qontracting for
Mr. J. Wheatley for, the past three
months, and have around half a
million feet in the booms. These
logs will go to Georgetown mill
for the Big Bay Lumber Co.
Vic Johnson and 6 men are ten
miles down the inlet taking out
logs, whioh will be put into the
booms of the Abbottsford Logging
Co., and sent to Ocean Falls.
Lee Intermali, Walter McDonald)
Paul Jacob and Wm. Cody left on
Tuesday for down the inlet, where,.]
they will take out a number of
yellow cedar logs for the Abbottsford Logging Co.
Henry Carney, Gilbert Gilbert-
son, and Pete Erickson are a short
distance down the inlet busily engaged in putting the big sticks in
the water.
Miles Donald who has been
working a small crew all summer
is still going strong. He has
nearly 400,000 feet in the water.
He is using horses for hauling logs
and running them to the water in
a log chute.
A. McGuire who has also been
operating all summer is still skidd
ing them into the salt chuck.   He
has a good sized boom all made up
ready for shipment.
Armistice Day
Celebration
For Anyox
Service Association Prepares
Programme
The Anyox Service Association
held a meeting on Monday Sept.
29, for the purpose of making
arrangements for the celebration
of Armistice Day, which occurs on
Monday November 10, this day
also being Thanksgiving Day.
The following officers were elected: Rev. J. Herdman, president;
Mr. Harris, of the mine, secretary;
J. Wilson, treasurer.
Various committees were appointed to take charge of the
arrangements. Mr. A. Sinolair
was elected convener of the dance
committee; Mr. R. Cornish of the
programme committee, and Mr.
Fricker will be in charge of the
sale of poppies.
It was decided to hold a dance
in the Recreation Hall, on the
evening of November 10th. This
will take the form of a novelty
dance, and some new features will
be introduced.
The following evening a banquet
will be held for ex-service men and
nurses.
Poppies will be on sale at the
dance, and the following clay a
Tag Day. will be held.
The Anyox Service Association
was formed some years ago for the
purpose of rendering assistance to
any returned man during a time of
sickness or distress, aud since the
time the Association has been functioning, they have lent a helping
hand to many returned men, who
needed help, especially during
sickness.
The poppies this year were purchased from the workshop of returned men in Vancouver, and
were made entirely by disabled
veterans.

Sometime in November the
Local Elks are going to stage another big show. Rehearsals have
already started and much progress
has been made. A small sketch,
having in its cast a number of
local artists and under the able
direction of Vic Cruikshank, has
all the appearance of becoming a
howling success, and should please
the publio immensely. Several
other high class turns will be
added to the bill and it is safe to
state now that this entertainment
will be well worth seeing.

Copper Should Increase
In Price
The mining boom that was
expected in the province this year,
has (ailed to mature, except in a
few isolated districts. The chief
cause given is the unsettled conditions in Europe, but now that the.
Dawes plan has been accepted by
the big powers, this obstacle has
been removed. The big mining
companies, especially copper pro*
ducers, expect that metal sales will
be considerably increased, and it
is reasonable to expect that their
hopes will be realized. Before
the war, Germany was the largest
European consumer of American
copper, but since the war, has
been buying in very small quanti
ties in comparison with former
purchases. Not only will Germany buy in larger quantities, but
it is expected that other countries,
now that the political tension has
been decreased, will also buy in
larger quantities, as money becomes more free and trade
expands. Copper at a steady
price of 15 or 16 cents a pound
would be a great boom for this
district, It would place the
Granby Co. financially on their
feet, and would give small companies encouragement to develop
mining properties now dormant.
Alice Arm Mining
While Alice Arm has not experienced any spectacular mining
boom during the past summer,
steady progress has been made.
The Homestake Mining Co. who
have bonded the Toric, are busy
doing development work. The
Keystone Mining Co. are also
developing the Sunset with remarkable sucecss. The Esperanza, one of the steadiest ore shippers in the province has been in
operation throughout the year.
Mining engineers have visited the
district, and were high in their
praise with what they saw, and
expect to   again visit the camp.
Naas Indians To
Meet Premier King
A delegation representing the
Naas River Indian reservations is
planning to present a petition to
lit. Hon. W. L. Mackenzie King,
premier of Canada, when he visits
Prince Rupert on October 13 with
a view of obtaining a satisfactory
settlement on the land question.
An important meeting of delegates from the reserves was held
recently. Mr. O'Meara, the
legal representative of the Nishga
tribes, was present and outlined
the progress of negotiations with
the government. It was decided
to continue the efforts towards a
settlement satisfactory to the Indians.

Big game hunting in Northern
British Columbia will come in for a
considerable boost as the result of
the success attending a hunting expedition by three Americans in the
Thudade Lake country, during
which was bagged in less than a
week six caribou, twelve big mountain goats, two moose, two grizzlies, and one black bear.
The expedition was the result of
a fishing and hunting trip taken
by S. Richardson of Fargo, North
Dakota, .in the district north of
Vanderhoof last summer, on which
occasion he met with such success
and was so favorable impressed
with his whole outing that he de.
cided to return.

The Mineral Province of Western Canada
Has produoeel minerals valued as follows: Placer Gold, $76,962,203; Lode Gold, $113,352,655; Silver,
$63,532,655; Lead, $58,132,661; Copper, $179,046,508; Zinc, $27,904'756; Coal and Coke, $250,968,113;
Building Stone, Brick, Cement, $39,415,234; Miscellaneous Minerals, $1,408,257; making its mineral
production to the end of 1923 show
An Aggregate Value of $810,722,782
The substantial progress of the Mining Industry in this Province is strikingly exhibited in the following
figures, which show the value of production for successive five-year periods:   For all years to 1895, inclusive,
$94,547,241; for five years, 1896-1900, $57,607,967; forfiveyears, 1901-1905, $96,507,968; forfiveyears, 1906
1910, $125,534,474; for five years, 1911-1915, $142,072,603; forfive years, 1916-1920, $189,922,725; for the
year 1921, $28,066,641, and for the year 1923, $41,304,320.
Production During last ten years, $350,288,892
Lode-mining has only been in progress for about 33 years, and not 20 per cent of the Province has been
even prospected; 300,000 square miles of unexplored mineral bearing land are open for prospecting.
The Mining Laws of this Province are more liberal and the fees lower than those of any other Province
in the Dominion, or any Colony in the British Empire.
Mineral locations are granted to discoverers for nominal fees.
Absolute Titles are obtained by developing such properties, security of which is guaranteed by
Crown Grants,

Dawes Plan Expected
I To Stimulate Mining
European Countries Will Buy
More Freely of Metals
•[roiling out of the red tape incidental to getting the Dawes plan
for) the payment of German war
reparations into active fuctioning
is proceeding favorable. That the
American recommendations 'are to
be carried out now appears as
reasonably certain as anything can
be. The various nations involved
have affixed their seal of approval
upon the pact, and all seem to
agree that it is a matter of self-
interest all round to oarry the deal
through to a successful conclusion.
On this side of the Atlantic concern is chiefly and selfishly enough
centered on its effect on national
prosperity. Each group is naturally inclined to look at it from its
own particular angle.
The manufacturer of certain lines
of goods is more apt to show a lack
of enthusiasm'for it, because with
a rehabilitated Germany to face in
the keen competition of world
markets, scatching for business
will be decidedly harder. The producer of raw materials will smell
in it the accumalation of pelf for
himself.
In the latter category are to be
found most metal producers. Before the Kaiser and his gang went
on the warpath Germany was our
hest copper customer. With
Germany-buying in much smaller
quantities since the end of the war,
red i etal production and consump-
«.;,-,» . i.ave barely balanced, with
the output pretty well curtained at
that'. Consequently, the copper
business looks considerable better
as a result of the Dawes plan adoption.
Silver mines are likewise licking
their chops in anticipation of better
prices. Europe contributes to a
dull silver market for a while by
melting coins, selling the bullion'
or recoining a debased mixture.
Since then it has been found that
paper money and debased silver
money are poor excuses for the
real thing. Late purchases of
silver in considerable quantities by
both Poland and Germany are accepted as the entering wedge for
silver buying on a  much   larger
Lead producers are in a fortunate position, inasmuch as a world
shortage of lead looms within the
next decade or two, provided no
new fields of importance are dis-
discovered in the near future, and
such a contingency seems remote.
B. C. Stands High In
Mining Industry
Two-thirds of Canada's output
of copper, ninety per cent of its
production of zinc; one-half of its
total lead production; one- fifth of
its gold and silver;.about one-third
of its production of coal
These are a few of the facts behind the mining industry of this
province; a few of the facts that
indicate the remarkable future
ahead of it.
The Sullivan Mine at Kimberley
about 14 miles from Cranbrook,
has enough ore in sight to keep it
going for another 20 years. J. J.
Warren, managing direotor of the
Consolidated Mining and Smelter
Company, owners of the mine is
authority for that statement.
Treadwell Co. Erects
Mill At Keno Hill
The Treadwell Yukon Company
will have its 100 ton mill erected
and operating on Keno Hill in the
Mayo district, by the 1st of November, according to P. R. Bradley, of Juneau, consulting engineer
of the company, who returned
after a six weeks' visit to the company's property in that region.
The Treadwell Yukon Company
has secured control through a lease
of the Guggenheim property that
is adjacent to its own, and will de
velop that property, mine and mill
the ore.
Mr. Bradley says tlie developments of the year indicates a very
favorable outlook for the Mayo
district. His company has uncovered outcroppings extending 4,000
feet in length and developments of
Galena Hill indicate a large extension of the known mineral area of
the country.
Jumbo Mine To Be
Again Operated
The 1. X. L. Syndicate, composed of Rossland mining men, who
have had such wonderful success
in the opration of this high-grade
property has taken a lease and
bond on the old Jumbo mine,
which latter mine shipped coir
siderable ore during the early days
of development here.
The syndicate will start active
operations on the property immediately.
