Black Diamond is
Showing Great
Promise
Alice Arm Property Proves
Up Ore Bodies
Jack Hauber, who came down
from the Black Diamond Group on
Monday for supplies, is highly
pleased with the amount of ore
that has been encountered on the
property this winter, and he proposes to continue development
work.
The Black Diamond property is
situated on. Clearwater Creek, on
the upper Kitsault and the ledge is
laying on the contact of strongly
orystalized blue anthracite and
argelite, impregnated with dykes,
and the lead has all the appearance
of a'true banded fissure vein. The
lead is 32 feet wide with bands of
anthracite running through it.
The upper tunnel was started on
the hanging wall and was driven
in a northerly direction for a
distance of 30 feet, and was then
driven in a north-easterly direction
for a distance of 10. feet in order to,
(UtRe'jrdf 2'Tead, which was done
at a distance of 40 feet from the
portal.; -The tunnel was then continued in order to strike the No, 3
', lead and it is estimated that this
lead wiftbe encountered at a distance of 35 feet from the No. 2
lead, thirty feet of which has
already been driven. The entire
distance' of the tunnel is 70 feet
and a depth of 65 feet has been
obtained.
Assays taken on the Nol 1 lead
fet a distance of 15 feet from the
i  '        ' ' " ' '      '' ' M.
portal gave returns of $3.60 in
silver per ton. At a distance of
30 feet samples gave returns of
$5.40 per ton, both these assays
were taken from a width of four
feet. In oross-'outtiug the lead,
samples were taken on the foot
wall from a width of one foot,
which gave returns of 74.4 ozs.
silver per ton. Samples taken
from a width of one-and-half feet
on the No. 2 lead at a distance of
40 feet from the portal, gave
returns of 72.6 ozs. silver per ton.
Three more tunnels have been
driven on the property below the
upper tunnel, and the tunnel is in
a distance of 15 feet, and is an
inoline. shaft. Samples taken
from a width of four feet gave
returns of $4.60 in silver and gold
per ton.
The second tunnel has been
driven a distance of 16 feet. The
lead has not yet been out through
but it is estimated to be at least
8 or \0 feet in width. Average
samples of this tunnel gave returns
of $4.20 in silver and $1.60 in gold
per ton.
The lower tunnel on the banks
of Clearwater Creek has been
driven for a distance of 14 feet, the
St. Patrick's Dance at
Anyox is Big Affair
The anniversay of Ireland's
patron saint was celebrated in
Anyox, and why should'nt it be.?
Was'nt it the greatest day Ireland
ever had, being the first St.
Patrick's Day since the little
island became a free state.
A dance was given by the ladies
of the Catholio Church, in the Recreation Hall, and the floor was
taxed to oapaoit.y.
The hall was beautifully decorated, the predominating color being
green. As the guests arrived they
were greeted with a smile and the
glad hand of Mr. John Dillon, jbhen
a glympse of the interior brought
forth many exclamations of surprise
which did credit to the artistic
taste of Mr. Terrence Patrick
Ryan, who was in charge of the
decorating. The Anyox Orchestra
rendered the music, which was
mostly Irish, in their usual excellent manner, and altogether it was
a "grand night," and the ladies
who promoted such an enjoyable
evening's entertainment arddeserv-
ing of great praise.
.^pfei committee who arranged tho
affair were: Mesdames A. Morton,
E. Morning, G. Kinrade, J. Dillon,
N. Harrington, W. O'Neil and Miss
Nancy O'Neil.
Alice Arm Celebrates
St. Patrick's Day
The 17th. of auld Ireland was
celebrated in a most illigent style
at the Alioe Arm Hotel, by a five
hundred drive, followed by a dance
which was given by the Local
Council of Women. The hall was
very tastefully decorated for the
occasion by Mrs, E. E. McCoy,
About 40 persons were present,
and card playing was the order of
the evening until 11 o'clock, when
dancing commenced, whioh was
kept up until 1.30. Thecard prizes
were won by Mrs. T. W. Falconer
and Mr. M, D. Ross and the booby
prize was won by Miss Tilly Smith.
Mrs. McCoy and Mrs. T. W.
Falconer furnished the music for
the dancing. Those in oharge of
arrangements were Mrs. D. S.
Cameron, Mrs. Geo. Young, Mrs.
O. Gray and Miss B. Crawford.
Esperanza Mine at Alice
Arm Ships Ore
The Esperanza shipped 90 tons
of ore to Anyox last Sunday. The
low grade ore will be treated at
the Anyox smelter and the high
grade will be sent to Tacoma for
treatment. The Esperanza will
still continue to ship ore. It is
now being loaded in railway oars
at the foot of the hill, and these
will be pulled to the wharf and the
ore unloaded into the ore bunkers
df the Taylor Mining Co. The
Esperanza expects to ship ore until
about the 1st. of July.
lead is 16 feet wide, but no assays
have been taken.   The ore in this
tunnel  is  low   grade  as  far as
present work shows.
The owner of the Blaok Diamond
is to complimented on the amount
of work done this winter and the
satisfactory results that have been
obtained. The whole Clearwater
district will benefit by the work
that has been done on the Blaok
Diamond this winter.
Pete Anderson, who is driving
a tunnel on the Columbia group
was in town this week for supplies.
He has driven the tunnel a distance
of 130 feet and he anticipates that
it will be necessary to drive an
additional 50 feet before ore is
encountered. The Columbia joins
the Black Diamond, on Clearwater
Creek and it has the same lead.

Mining the Pioneer
Industry.
The fact that the present prosperity and progress of America,
Australia and Africa is due to a
large extent to the mining industry
is being realized more all the time.
The discovery of precious metals
on these three continents was the
magnet that drew the adventurous
spirits from all parts of the world
and laid the foundation of the
present prosperity of each respective country. Mining was responsible for the building of the first
roads in the new countries, as
transportation was necessary, and
many of the roads in existence
today would probably never have
been built but for mining. Precious
minerals was the prize that spurred
the Spaniards on in Mexico and
South America and the lure of
gold was what brought the prairie
schooners from the eastern states to
California. Australia was only
a British penal colony, until gold
was discovered, and South Africa
was an indifferent farming country
until diamonds and gold were
discovered on the Rand. British
Columbia was a country with no
roads or trails and was considered
to be fit only for trapping, until
gold was discovered in the Fraser
River Valley, and the rush of
miners from the Californian and
Australian diggings opened up the
country. Roads were built in
order to get supplies in to the
interior, and from that time British
Columbia has forged ahead. All
the new countries of the world
would undoubtedly have been
peopled by the white race at some
time, but it is a fact that in some
cases mining was the first industry
in the country and in numerous
other cases has given a great
impetus to the development of the
country already settled. British
Columbia, with its vast area of
mountainous courtry would have
far less railroad mileage than it has
today if it was not a mining
country, and the wagon roads that
were built throughout the country
in the early days of mining would
probably not have been built for
years afterwards if there had been
no mineral wealth. These roads
that were built to connect the
different mining camps, opened up
large areas of agricultural land and
the farmers throughout the province
owe a debt of gratitude to the
prospector and the miner in
pioneering and developing , the
country and also in providing a
market for their produce.
Mr. J. M. Hoar, who installed a
Ross mill on Mat Allard's claim
last fall, at Kalum Lake, near
Terrace, will again operate the
property this year says the Terrace
News. Assays of samples taken
from various parts of the property
average around $100 per ton.
Two more Ross mills will be installed this year and the addition
of these two mills will increase the
capacity of the mine to 20 tons per
day. Mr. Hoar states that there
was keen interest displayed by
American capitalists in mining
developments in the country
between the lake and Alice Arm.
Development work will be done
on the Hunter and Blue Grouse
claims this summer, by A. Wiek-
strom. This property is situated
about twenty miles north of Kalum
Lake, The ore is silver lead and
carries 20 ozs. of silver, 50 per cent,
lead and also some gold values.,
In an interesting address before
the British Columbia Division of
of the Canadian Institute of Mining
and Metallurgy recently held in
Vancouver, the Honourable
William Sloan in the course of his
remarks said that, notwithstanding
the hard year in the mining industry, the cheerful enthusiasm of the
convention was an inspiration.
The mining man is no quitter and
there is no place in the business for
the man who lives in the past,
The minister reviewed the production of the year showing that the
total value of mineral production
was in .the neighbourhood of
$28,000,000, a decline of approximately $7,000,000 in comparison with
the previous year, or roughly 20
per cent. He, however, pointed
out that if this matter was a
matter of condolence, the production of the state of Arizona showed
a decline of 77 per cent., Montana
75 per cent., Utah 55 per cent.,'
Idaho 51 per cent, and Nevada 50.
"The perseverance and the confidence of the independent operators,
the smelter companies and the,
prospectors in all sections of the
province are to be commended and
should be encouraged. The Provincial Government has spent
substantial sums in the past years
in   tho construction and mainte
nance of roads, trails and bridges
(to mining properties. Miners have
been given the benefit of ihe advice
of-qualified mining engineers and
the Mines Department has endeavoured to keep in close touch with
such organizations as the Canadian
Mining Institute and the Prospectors' Protective Association in order
that the needs of those identified
with the industry might be clearly
understood and everything possible
done to meet requirements, always
having in mind financial limitations
by reason of the heavy demands on
the Provincial Treasury from many
other sources."
The world's production of copper
in 1900 was approximately 1,000,
000,000 pounds. Of this, the
production of the United States
was approximately 55 per cent.
In 1912 the world's production
was 2,240,246,177 pounds. In 1917
the production of the world was
3,137,659,472 pounds.

Riches Under the Sea
Granby Scow Upsets
The Steam. Tug "Tartar" while
proceeding from Stewart to Anyox
last week, with two scows of
Premier ore had the misfortune to
lose the load of one scow. At 11
a.m. on Saturday morning it was
first noticed that the scow had a
slight list, and Capt. Cameron and
the crew proceeded to get her on
a level bottom, but before there
Was, time to get the hawsers, in
place to heave her up on the low
Hide the scow upset and her load
went to the bottom.
The accident happened about
four miles from Anyox and ninety
miles of the journey had already
been covered. It happened so
sudden that nothing could be done
to prevent it, as she could not be
beached owing to the danger of
damaging the tug on the rocky
shore. It is understood that the
ore was insured, of which there
was some 550 tons.
It is stated that the Anaconda
Mining Company, Butte, Montana,
is resuming operations on its
Original and Never Sweat mines,
which are two of its largest properties, and it is also expected that
work wjll be resumed at the High
Ore mine. The High Ore mine is
the deepest mine in the region, its
depth being 3000 feet, making it a
sump for some of the other mines.
The number of men employed in
the Butte mines has been increased
to 9000.
The Premier Mine
Continued from page 1. '
just three months, establishing a
record, which so far as we know
has not been duplicated in mining
history in this section of the
country.
Information received from an
authentib source is to the effeot
that a large surplus is being piled
up and that the dividend rate
indicated by the present dividend
declaration—$500,000 quarterly-
will be maintained throughout this
year, at least, with strong probability of extra dividends.
Optimists who have recently visited
the district go so far as to say that
so long as the present ore body
holds out the company is likely to
make . as much as $500,000
monthly.
Capital stock of the 'Premier
Cold Mining Co. is held very
closely and is divided into about,
nine equal parts. • Originally the
entire property was owned by R.
K. Neill, of Spokane, who "rediscovered the great mine; W. R.
Wilson, manager Crows Nest Pass
Coal Co., Fernie, B.C. and R. W.
Woods and A. M. Trites, merchants
of .Fernie. Subsequently three-
fifths of the property were sold to
New York interests, at a price
never published, but which must
have been of very large proportions.
Among the New Yorlo holders are
American Smelting' & Refining Co.
Isaac Untermeyer, Guggenheim
Bros, and Minor C. Keith, head of
the United Fruit Co.

Cutting down on advertising is like
conserving on coal on a locomotive.
Less coal means less steam; too much
economy of steam is liable to stop
