Mining Properties Alice
Arm Under Examination
Col. Viotor Spencer, accompanied
by H. E. Wilmont arrrived in
Alice Arm on Monday in order to
make an examination of mining
properties in the district, including
those on whioh options were taken
some time ago.
On Monday and Tuesday they
visited the Silver Cord Mine on the
North-east fork of the Kitsault
river, and also inspected several
properties on McGrath mountain.
On Wednesday they left for the
tipper Kitsault country, where
they will examine the Dolly Varden and Wolf, • also the Climax,
Silver Horde, Moose, and Chance.
An option was taken on the four
latter properties some time ago
and it expires at the end of this
month- Arrangements have also
been made by Col. Spencer so that
operations can be commenced on
the Dolly Varden and Wolf at
any time.
Col. Spencer is a member of the
firm of David Spencer, Ltd., Vancouver, aud Mr. Wilmont is a mining engineer of the Stobie-Furlong
firm of Toronto, and is at present
in charge of operations at the Cork-
Province Mine.
Bert Kergin Elected by
Majority of 42
H. F. Kergin has again been
eleoted by the voters of the Atlin
constituency to represent them at
the provincial Legislature. This'
makes Mr. Kergin's third term of
office. He was elected in 1920 and
again in 1924.
The election was very close and
was in doubt until Saturday evening. Latest advices give the fol-
owing figures: Kergin 611; Falconer 569; Moult 32. This gives
Kergin a majority of 42, and includes every poll and all absentee
Conservatives Obtain Good
Majority in Legislature
Final election returns give the
standing of the political parties as
follows: Conservatives 34, Liberals
13, Labor 1. The latter party
evidently had not consolidated
their position in the province by
forming an alliance with the Liberals, and are now represented by
a lone member, Tom Uphill of

Big Ore Body Highland
Group Is Being
The Highland Group, situated on
McGrath mountain, and which is
being developed by the owner, R.
Ingraham, is showing signs of developing into an important property.
A tunnel is being drifted on the
ore body and is in a distance of 20
feet, which gives depth on the ore
of also 20 feet. The ore body has
an average width of 34 feet, and is
plainly traceable on the surface for
a long distance. The ore is a zinc-
lead of a high character. Mining
engineers and others who have examined the property are of the
opinion that the prospects of developing a considerable tonnage are
good. Work of extending the tunnel is being vigorously prosecuted.
The ground slopes at an angle of
about 45 degrees, so that considerable depth on the ore can be obtained at a minimum cost.
New Camp Esperanza Mining
Company Completed
The new camp of the Esperanza
Mines Co. that has been under
construction is now completed.
It comprises two buildings and
provides accomodation for ten
men, a commodious dining room
and kitohen. Hot and cold water
has been installed, and a shower
bath for the use of the miners.
Timbering at the mine has been
undertaken during the past week
or two. The compressor plant is
expected to arrive shortly and
with its installation mining operations will be considerably expe-
Toric Road Nearly
The new road from the Upper
Kitsault Suspension bridge to the
Toric Mine will be completed about
the end of the month. The bad
parts of the old road have been
eliminated, and a much better grade
is now obtainable.
It is ten feet wide and will accomodate the big shipments of
concentrates that are shortly expected to be moving continuously
from the Toric.

Portfolio of Minister of
Mines Lost to District
When election figures were
pouring into Prince Rupert Wednesday and Thursday last week
from northern constituencies, the
figures became somewhat twisted
and T. W. Falconer, conservative
candidate for this riding was
given a majority of 167. These
figures were forwarded to Vancouver and Hon. S. F. Tolmie wired
to Mr. Falconer congratulating
him on his victory, and informing
him that the portfolio of Minister
of Mines awaited him.
By a small number of votes the
golden opportunity of the member
for Atlin becoming Minister of
Mines has been lose. Au opportunity that will probably never
happen again, and whioh would
have been of great assistance to the
mining industry of the North
could it have been realized.
Three New Boats For
Northern Service
Construction of three new coastwise passenger liners which will be

Fire at Anyox Mine Quickly
On Thursday morning at the
early hour of 1.45 a.m. a fire broke
out at the residence of R. Owen at
the Mine. The cause was unknown.
Due to the quick action of near-by
neighbours no heavy loss was sustained. What seemed at first to be
a serious fire, was checked by the
hard work of Mr. Owen and the
Mine fire chief, R. Strand.
Billy Mac Development
A development tunnel was commenced this week on the Billy Mac
claim. The work is being done by

The people of British Columbia
spoke with no uncertain voice on
the 18th. when they outsed the
Liberal patty from office and elected a strong Conservative Government to administer the affairs of
the province for the next four or
five years. Northern British Columbia, however, with the exception
of Fort George remained Liberal,
which is perhaps to be regretted,
especially as T. W. Falconer
would have held the portfolio of
Minister of Mines in the Tolmie
government, which would undoubtedly have done much to further
the expansion of the mining industry in the Atlin riding. As it now
stands the entire north will be
without cabinet representation.
The election is now a thing of the
past. The Conservatives are in
power by the wish of the majority
of the people, and as good citizens,
whether we voted Conservative or
Liberal, we should all stand and
work together for the development of the natural resources of
the province, and this district in
As far as this riding was concerned the election was very quiet.
No great local issues were at stake.
The proposed railway from Stewart to the interior was criticized by
several liberal speakers in the south
and the Stewart News came out
strongly in defense of Stewart's
rights. Following is an editorial
regarding the Stewart railway,
which was published in the Financial News of Vancouver on July
20th. It is broad-minded
well worth reading.
"In the reoently concluded political campaign that raked British
Columbia fore and aft during the
better part of an ordinarily placid
month, some special sniping was
done at the proposal to construct a
railway in the North running from
Stewart to the Groundhog coal
fields and thence, ultimately to the
Peace River country.
"Justification for this sniping was
advanced in the form of an argument that an east-and-west line
outting British Columbia in the
North must necessarily be inimical
to the welfare of Vancouver.
There is something decidedly wrong
with that logic.
"We do not pretend to know the
"ins and outs" of the Hon. H. H.
Stevens' railway plans for the
north. He has been deoidedly
secretive on the point of what kind
and quantity of backing be has
procured. He may be adequately
supported or he may be financing
precariously.   We do not know.
"But we do hold that there is
something decidedly wrong with
the type of logic that would condemn a new railway in British Columbia on the general prinoiple that
it must be no good because it does
not terminate in Vancouver.
"To the far-sighted citizen of
British Columbia the conviction
will come on consideration of the
facts that British Columbia stands
to profit most in the coming score
of years by opening the latent
wealth of northern Alberta and
British Columbia, and that the
only economical way of obtaining
that desired development is by
providing the cheapest possible
form of transportation service.
The objection that the time has not
yet arrived for further railway
development in the North isridicu
Ions. The time is over late in arriving, for the world is ready to
buy the products the North is cap
able of yielding in tremendous
"Nothing holds greater promise
for the future prosperity of the
Pacific & Great Eastern Railway
than its northward extension to a
thriving, industrialized, well-populated Peace River country. And
if an east-and-west direct line from
the Peace River country to Stewart
will lower transportation costs in
that latent Empire of the North
and enlarge its prospects for rapid
development, then by all means
should that line be encouraged.
Granting the economic soundness
of such an undertaking, it must be
realized that its cousumation would
assist rather than injure the north-
and-Bonth line which is the P. G. E.
aud, moreover, would serve Vancouver, if indirectly, more profitably than would a long north-and-
south line which, alone, might fail
to give the Peace River country
the full advantage of short rail
haul to tidewater. By reason of
recent experience Vancouver
should realize the truth and justice
of the argument in behalf of the
short rail haul to tidewater."

Drop in Stocks Will Not
Retard Prosperity of
During the past few weeks the
price of local mining stocks has
fallen heavily, aud in the aggregate
represent a decline in values running into the millions of dollars-
Yet the physical conditions of the
respective mines and prospects
have not changed, except in some
cases for the better as a result of
the progress of development.
Already people are beginning to
shake their heads and enquire what
is the matter with milling, and to
remark that the bottom seems to
have dropped out of it. It is idle
to explain to them that the inevitable recaction from a more or less
un warranted and hysterical stock
market boom is no reflection of the
present state of industry. As a
matter of fact mining iu British
Columbia is probably in a bettor
position today than it has ever been.
Production is steadily increasing;
the recent increase in the price of
metals assures greater profits; and
there is more development work
going on in areas more widely distributed than at any previous time.
Whether there will be an early revival in stock market interest is
another matter, and, so far as the
industry is concerned, is of no great
moment. Unquestionably the price
of a few of the more meritorious
mining stocks is now below the
level of their intrinsic worth, and
this will be corrected when, as will
presently happen, dividends are
deolared. Already one of the newer
companies has commenced the distribution of profits. But, as in a
horse race there may be many
starters, so, of the many recent
promotions on whioh the public
were keen to gamble, there will be
many "also rans."—British Columbia Miner.

Another Striking Advertisement
by the Trade and Commerce
Department, Ottawa
The various striking advertisements of
the Trade and Commerce Department at
Ottawa whioh have appeared in Canadian
newspapers from time to time are calculated
to create an "export trade consciousness"
throughout the Dominion.
It was decided last year by the Honourable James Malcolm, Minister of the
Department in question, that Canadians
should become more intimately acquainted
with business opportunities outside their
own oountry. In order to accomplish this,
the campaign of publicity was embarked
Canada's external trade has grown in
suoh proportions as probably few Canadians
Hon. Jambs Mammih
realise. For instance, in the last fiscal year,
ended Maroh 81st, the Dominion's total
exports were valued at more than a billion
and a quarter dollars, or to be exact
11,250,466,297. This represents an export
trade of more than S1S0 for every man,
woman and ohild in Canada. At the
beginning of the present century Canada's
export trade amounted to less than 200
million dollars.
Another method of gauging Canada's
export trade is found in the fact that last
year the country's exports of manufactured
products alone amounted to about the same
as her total production of manufactured
prodiiota in 1000. In other words, Canada
is exporting as much In manufactured
articles to-day as the total output oi every
factory in the Dominion tsssulj-eight
years ago. These few figures map give
readers some comprehension of ttss immense increase in export business.
• Most public men and busmsss asm, no
rhatter what their polities maty ba, agree
that export trade is possibly Iks most
Valuable asset the Dominion oao have.
Canada's natural resources art a* varied
and ao rich that it would bs impossible for
Canadians to consume them. Take wheat
for example; it is manifestly Impossible for
9,000,000 people to consume 400,000,000
bushels of wheat annually. Canada's
future prosperity therefore is bound up in
seeking markets abroad for her surplus
When Canadian business men task to
sell their products in other lands, they cannot hope to control prices. They have to
meet competition from thousands of other
business men and producers living in other
countries. They are faced with fierce
world competition in maintaining their
hold on export business. To maintain this
trade of a billion and a quarter dollars a
year and to increase it, Canadians must
become acquainted with every legitimate
method known to business. They must
learn how to pack their goods in the
manner desired by the foreign buyer, they
must learn how to keep contract dates,
how to ship these goods by the most
economical and direct routes. And perhaps most important of all Canadian goods
must always be kept up to the standard of
the sample submitted.
The Department of Trade and Commerce, at Ottawa, is doing everything in
its power to further this export trade.
Years ago a Commercial Intelligence Service was established, and trained trade
commissioners sent to the world's trade
centres. In fact, Canada had the first
trade commissioners abroad, thus inaugu.
ating a system"which'has bean widely
copied. To-day this country has 24
trained trade commissioners in strategic

Canadian products. Whenever they learn
that there is a chance of a Canadian order
being placed, they immediately communicate with tho Commercial Intelligence
Service at Ottawa, giving all information
they possibly can. This information in the
possession of the service at Ottawa is at the

the Canadian manufacturer or producer
can find out with little trouble, and no

a diamond drill hole penetrated
the ore body about 1,160 ft. below
the surface, indicating the continuation of the ore to great depth.
Having secured the Norrie Tower
and other adjacent claims, a solid
block of territory about 5 miles
long now belongs to the' company.
Mining equipment ou hand is capable of carrying the two shafts on
which work has been started to a

Although many thousands of American tourists
regularly invade the ancient city and throng the corridors of th2 great hostelry, it is not often realized
that their ancestors once attempted to gain admittance to the city with less success. Early in the
War of Independence two forces of American soldiers
were despatched against Canada, one under General
Richard Montgomery up the Richelieu against Montreal, and the other under Colonel Benedict Arnold
through the wilds of Maine against Quebec. The two
armies united their resources before the city of
Quebec in mid-December, 1775, and commenced a
siege that lasted for 154 days throughout the ensuing winter. Montgomery had carried all before him
and captured the forts of St. Johns and Chambly, and
occupied Montreal and Three Rivers, so Quebec remained the last stronghold of importance held by the
British. Arnold had encountered great difficulty in
his march, and his expedition was depleted by about
a third of its members.
The defense of Quebec was under General Sir Guy
Carleton who had a garrison of about 1.500, about
equal to the strength of the attackers, composed of a
few regulars, including the Seventh Royal Fusiliers,
the Royal Emigrants, a Corps of Seamen, and British
and French-Canadian Militia.
Early in the morning of December 31, 1775, the
chief assault was delivered by the American troops,
bravely led by the commanders in person, Montgomery being killed at Pres-de-Ville, and Arnold
wounded at Sault-au-Matelot at the other side of
the town. The attack was unsuccessful, many prisoners were captured by the defenders, and the siege
thereafter became little more than a blocks rl^ until
relief arrived from Great Britain in May, 1776.
The tablet in commemoration of the part taken by
the Royal Fusiliers in the defence of the town
"throughout the rigors of a Canadian winter, against
an active and enterprising enemy" was unveiled in
Quebec on Dominion Day, July 1, in the presence of
the Governor-General A detachment of the Canadian
Fusiliers of London, Ontario, with two officers from
the parent unit in England, represented the Second
Royal Fusiliers. The arrangements were made by
Gsneral Charles F. Winter, secretary of the Dominion
of Canada Rifle Association, and formerly a member
of the Royal Fusiliers. *

AFTER all, there's no place like British Columbia in
which to work and live and play! Here, there are
no long "off seasons" to cut down a man's working
time. Our temperate climate keeps a man f it. •. enables
him to produce more... earn more.
The producers' average weekly wage in
British Columbia is $28.39... 49% higher than
the rest of Canada. In 1926 seventeen industries
increased weekly wages by $12.95! Actually in
ten years our annual payroll has grown from
78 million dollars to 175 million dollars... the
greatest advance by far of any Province during
that period. This, of course, does not include
agricultural workers, professionals, clerks and
others. British Columbia's gross payroll Is
estimated at 210 million dollars!
Life is more enjoyable... we have more time
to enjoy the year-round pleasures and recreations at our doors, while our general standard
of living is very much higher.
Taxation during the last four years has been
reduced by two and a half million dollars ...
concrete proof of our province's sound
financial condition.
Construction, that outward evidence of the
faith we have in our province, has played a
large part in the wage situation. In ten years
British Columbia's construction activity has
gone up ten times. In 1916 it involved only
$2,800,000... for 10 months in 1927 itlamounted
to $27,277,000!
This activity has an Immediate effect on
current conditions. Cash funds are disbursed
for materials, employment is good . . . wages
fairly steady ... money in circulation.
It increases the capital investment in our
Province. And there can be no surer indication
of future progress than when producing
machinery increases ... a sign of growing
markets ... a sign that British Columbia
products are winning a place in the markets of
the world.

progress ... clip them out and send them to friends. If you

Alice   Arm   Receives
Favorable Comment
In Annual Report
The Annual Report of the Minis'
ter of mines for 1927 makes very
interesting reading, containing as
it does a lot of valuable information.
The Alice Arm district has been
fairly well covered by Dr. H. T.
James, mining engineer for the
North-Western district. Dr. James
has been favorably impressed with
the possibilities of this section, and
following are some of his remarks
regarding this portion of his
"Some of the properties in the
upper Kitsault valley should receive
attention from examining engineers.
The Wolf property a part of the
Dolly Varden holdings, should be
some inducement to investigate the
Dolly Varden property as a whole.
The Wolf is situated on the opposite side of the river to the Dolly
Varden and 2 miles farther up the
valley. It is stated that diamond
drilling has demonstrated the existence of a consideiable amount of
milling ore.
"In addition to these two properties, the North Star, Toric, and
Tiger are properties which are partially developed and in which at
least fair silver values are found.
There are several other silver properties which might bear investigation. While it is not certain that
all or any of these properties will
stand up to systematic and accurate
sampling, still there are a sufficient
number of silver prospects within
the upper Kitsault valley to justify
a careful investigation of them by
some large organization. Since all
the properties are prospective milling properties and the transportation will be quite a problem, .it is
suggested that the district could be
developed to the best advantage by
one or two large companies, each
operating more than one of the
smaller properties.
"Some special mention should be
made of a part of the Illiance River
section. I refer to the McGrath
Mountain portion lying between the
North-east fork of the Kitsault and
the Illiance rivers. It is only about
4,000 feet high, reaching just to
timber-line, and is situated at the
very head of Alice Arm, separated
from the tide-water by about a mile
of gravel flats.
"A great number of claims have
been staked on McGrath mountain
and on every claim there is some
showing of zinc ore.    The surpris-

Tree Climbing Contest
With Bear Dead Heat
Marathon races, tree climbing
contests, and rifle shots followed
each other with dazzling rapidity a
a few days ago, when two miners
went out in quest of adventure to
shoot up a bs)ar.
The bear being brought to bay
a magazine load of rifle shells wan
quickly emptied in his direction.
The bear being taken off his guard
was surprised and disgusted at the
somewhat unwelcome salutation,
and hit for the nearest tree to size
the situation up.
It also suddenly dawned on the
miner that shooting high grade
underground was a lot safer than
shooting at wild and woolly bears
and not liking the looks of his former target he too scaled a nearby
tree. The third party who came
along to witness the killing suddenly remembered pressing business
that needed attention at the camp,
and disappeared from the scene
with the rapidity of a comet.
The bear still peacefully roams
the hills and the miners are quite
content to stay at home evenings
and watch the squirrels gambolling
around the camp.

food—the homey kind—come

ing part of it is that in almost every
instance zinc is practically the only
metal present. There is usually a
small amount of lead, as galena,
but only in a few places is galena
at all conspicuous. The same be
said of pyrite. Gold and silver
values are very low. On the Silver
Chord property high silver values
have been found in narrow stringers, but in general the mineralization
is essentially zinc-blend."
