Topographical   Survey
Of Alice Arm Will
Be Completed
R. Bartlett, who was in charge
last year of the topographical
section of the Dominion Geological
Survey Department arrivod at
Alice Arm on Sunday from
Ottawa. He was accompanied by
J. J. Fairley, who was assistant to
Mr. Bartlett last year.
On Monday a group of students
ofthe British Columbia University,
numbering five, arrived to complete
the party.
The mapping of the entire
district last year was uncompleted
This year efforts will be made to
finish the work, so that a map
showing the elevations of the
mountains, locations of the creeks,
etc. can be published.
Work will be commenced on the
hills east of Silver City, in the
Lime Creek and Roundy Creek
sections. Following the completion
of this, the party will move to the
Upper Kitsault Country, and complete the work there left over from
last year.
If time and weather conditions
permit, the latter part of the
summer will be spent in surveying
the Illiance River section from
Copper Creek to the Illiance—
Naas divide.
The whole active part of the district will then be accurately mapped, and a geological survey also
made.    This will supply  valuable
information to mining companies
seeking information of the district.
Dr. Hanson will conduct the geological examination again this year.
Since leaving here last fall, Mr.
Bartlett has spent the entire time
at Ottawa.   He stated that the
survey work done last year has
been transferred to paper, and next
year will   see  a complete map of
[ the district ready for publication.
Enjoyable Tournament
Held By Anyox
Tennis Club
The Tennis Club spent eight
hours on Sunday in one of the
most enjoyable tournaments on
record. The weaker women players were paired with the stronger
men players and the results were
surprisingly close.
Due to the absence of men Mrs.
Eve and Miss Richards played
masculine roles. Paired with
Miss Leighton, Mrs. Eve administered the most crushing defeat
suffered by Mrs. Mclntyre and Mr.
Field who had been leading
throughout the day. Miss Richards and Miss Greenwood were in
the running right to the last game
when the eventual winners. Mrs.
Cody and Mr. Lee gave them their
second defeat in eleven matches.
Refreshments during the afternoon  compensated  for the hasty
meals   the   competitors   had   to
snatch between sessions.
High Scorers were:
Mrs. Cody and Mr. Lee, 215.
Miss Richards and Miss Greenwood, 209.
Mrs. Wenerstrom and Mr. Mclntyre, 209.
Mrs. Mclntyre and Mr.  Field,

Mining Industry of Alice
Arm On Eve Of
As the summer season advances
it becomes more evident that the
mining industry of Alice Arm
district will considerably expand
this year. Already examinations
have been made of several properties and enquiries made regarding
prices and terms. As the snow-
disappears from the higher altitudes
further examinations will be made
and it is expected several properties
will be under bond before snow
flies next fall.
At the present time in the Upper
Kitsault Country three properties
are being developed. Chief of
these is the Toric, whose big sensational ore body is being developed by the Britannia Mining &
Smelting Co. of Howe Sound.
Joining the Toric on the north
is the Tiger. This property has
the same formation and class of
ore as the Toric. It is being developed by the Utility Mines No. 1
Ltd. of Vancouver. It is au exceedingly promising property, and
results of development so far attained have far exceeded expectations.

Curtailment of output by a number of leading copper producers is
described by Barron's Financial
Weekly as the most constructive
step in many years. The industry
has long suffered from wide price
swings, and consumers as well as
producers will benefit through
maintenance of a staple price.
If as expected, stabilization will
be effected at 18 cents a pound
for domestic delivery, the question
of substitution must be faced.
The Barron's writer believes that
substitution will be limited, and
that the growing use ot electricity
assures a steadily increasing demand for copper.
"Where lightness is desirable in
novelties or specialties, aluminum
must win. Where zinc will answer,
and cheapness is important, zinc
will be used, whether copper be
15 or 18 cents. But the real
staple consumption of any metal is
due to demands that it fills better
than any substitute. The expansion
of nickel consumption, despite a
relatively high cost, shows that
price does not hamper expansion
in fields in which the product is
better and more efficient than
others."—Mining Truth.
C. P. R. May Take Over
Stewart Railway
Following the recent announcement that the Canadian Northeastern Railway at Stewart had been
granted a lease of the foreshore at
the head of Portland Canal it is
said the line will undoubtedly be
taken oyer by C. P. R. interests as
part of their scheme for developing
the mines of Northern British Columbia through the Consolidated
Mining & Smelting Co.
The understanding here is that
the railway will be put in good
shape up the Bear River as far as
the George Copper and surveys will
be carried out beyond that point.
For the time being the railway will
be used for mining purposes with
the probability of extending it into,

First Airplane Atlantic
Much interest has been evinced
in the efforts of the Imperial Order,
Daughters of the Empire, to turn
public attention to the fact that
June 14th, 1929, is the tenth anniversary of the first Trans-Atlantic
Flight which was accomplished by
Captain John Alcock and Lieut.
Arthur Weitten Brown, British airmen.
With a British-designed and
British-built aeroplane and engine,
piloted by British officers, rests the
honour of having made the first
non-stop flight across the Atlantic.
This magnificent achievement of
Captain Alcock and Lieutenant
Brown on their Vickers-Vimy-Rolls-
Royce biplane won the Daily mail
prize of ^10,000; 2,000 guineas
from the Ardath Tobacco Company
and £1,000 from Mr. Lawrene R.
Phillips for the first British subject
to fly the Atlantic.
Many Canadians have overlooked
the fact that these British airmen
and not Colonel Lindbergh made
the first Trans-Atlantic flight.
Lindbergh's feat was wonderful but
not more so than that of Alcock
and Brown. He flew farther but
they flew first. He flew alone but
they chartered the course,   and  in
