Officials of Utility Co.
Make Examination
Of Properties
C. 0. Wickenden director of the
Utility Mines No. 1 Ltd. and W
J. L. King, secretary paid a visit of
inspection to the Tiger mine last
week. They were accompanied by
P. E. Peterson, consulting engineer.
They made a thorough examination of the Tiger and Climax and
were very pleased with the amount
of ore developed on these two
properties. They saw for themselves the 10 ft. ore ledge recently
cut by the No. 3 tunnel at a depth
of nearly 300 feet from the surface.
They also examined the possibilities of the Climax. This property
has an ore vein 20 feet wide. It
has been drifted on for 50 feet and
a tunnel driven across the vein.
The vein is well defined and can be
traced on the surface for several
hundred feet.
The Utility Mines No. 1 Ltd.
owns 17 claims. The Climax being
on the north end and the Tiger on
the south. The area controlled is
over two miles long and two-thirds
of a mile wide. It is in the midst
of the rich silver belt of the Upper
<Kitsault country. The Climax adjoins the Wolf, which property has
the largest surface showings of
silver ore in the Alice Arm district,
and which has been successfully
diamond drilled. The Tiger joins
the Toric on the north. The latter
property now being successfully
developed by the Britannia Co.

The Britannia Mining & Smelting Co. are continuing development of the Toric mine. One machine is engaged in drifting on the
ore body, and one diamond drill is
being used for development purposes. About 20 men are employed.
Well founded reports coming
down are to the effeot that development work is very satisfactory.
The tunnel is being driven into the
hill, and as the hill is steep, considerable depth is being obtained on
the big ore body. Diamond drill
stations are cut every fifty feet.
The ore body oan then be proved
at even greater depth.
It is reported that the Britannia Co. are also negotiating for additional mining properties in the
district. The Easterly and Silver
Bowl properties have claimed
their attention.

High School Course By
Victorian-British Columbia's educational advantages are being extended to the the boy and girl of
high school age aud qualifications
on the frontiers of provincial set
tlement. When the scholastic
term opens next month throughout
British Columbia there will be inaugurated, for the first time in
Canada, a complete high school
course by correspondence. Announcement to this effect is niade
by Hon. Joshua Hinchliffe, Minister of Education.
Under the direction of Dr. S. J.
Willis, Superintendent of Education, and Mr. J. W. Gibson, officer
in charge of the new department,
a staff of educational experts worked during the summer holidays
preparing the lessons covering the
entire curriculum of high school
studies. These lessons have been
completed and the machinery for
the operation of instruction by correspondence has been set up. The
first student has been enrolled in
the person of a young girl at Car-
In all respects the courses are
similar to those of the regular
high schools, and correspondence
pupils have similar options and objectives. They may choose to study in preparation for junior ma
triculation; entrance to Normal
School; Commercial course, or for
personal development and general
culture. The options extend to
subjects as in regularly established
The Department supplies the usual free text books and provides,
at the lowest possible cost, the
books that students in city high
schools must buy. No fees are
oharged and the only additional
cost to correspondence pupils is for
the postage on lessons sent in for
For a number of years the Department of Education has eon-
ducted correspondence courses in
Elementary School work. So successful have been the results that
it was decided to extend the courses to cover High  School subjects.
"We felt," said Hon, Mr. Hinchliffe in announcing the new courses,
"that similar opportunities should

Production   Costs   By
Copper Companies
Statistics recently compiled by a
competent authority show that
twenty-six per cent, of the total
production of copper on the North
American continent costs seven
cents or less a pound; twenty-four
per cent, costs from seven to nine
cents; thirty-six per cent, costs
from nine to eleven cents; only
fourteen per cent, costs over eleven
cents; and less than one-half per
cent, costs over seventeen cents.
These figures probably do not in all
cases take into account depreciation
and depletion; but even so, they
sufficiently well indicate that with a
stabilized market price in the vicinity
of eighteen cents, substantial profits
are assured to producers practical^
without exception.
Noah Timmins    Made
Money Mining
The mining enterprises with
which Mr. Noah Timmins has been
associated have been uniquely successful. This has been due partly,
no doubt, to good luck, but at least
equally to Mr. Timmins' shrewdness
and sound judgment. His advent
in British Columbia in the guise of
a purchaser of mines is therefore
most welcome; and the announcement that he has acquired control
of the Owen Lake properties is
significant of their promise.—B. C.
Canada's fish sales to Australia
amounted to $2,071,000 in the
Australian fiscal year 1927-28, according to the statement recently
issued by the Commonwealth Statistical!. All of the exports represented by this sum entered Australia
under the preferential trade agreement between the two countries.
Tinned fish made up nearly all the
export of Canadian fish products to
daughters of the men and women
who are pioneering on the land, iu
small mining and lumbering camps
and in remote hamlets along the
coast as are accorded to boys and
girls in the cities. The sturdy pioneers who are doing so much to
develop British Columbia will no
longer, we hope, be compelled to
send their children away from
home or deny them the advantages
of a High School education.
