Ore Body Struck On
Tiger At 400 Feet
V The tunnel being driven at the
Tiger to tap the ore body at depth
is entering an interesting stage.
Reports from the property on
Thursday evening were that for the
past 35 feet the tunnel had been
driven through a heavy mineralization. The ore carrying considerable iron, with which gold values
arc expected to be associated, in
addition to silver values. Samples
of this ore were sent out for assaying, but returns are not yet available. This ore body docs not show
on the surface, and is of a different
character than any yet located in
the upper workings.
Following the cutting of this ore
body, some high grade silver was
broken into, but was not persistent.
The foot wall of the ore ledge that
has been cut in No. 1 tunnel was
then encountered, and is now being
driven into. The driving of a crosscut on the ore was expected to be
commenced yesterday.
The face of the tunnel has a
depth of 400 feet on the ore, and
the future shows great promise.
Samples of the ore ledge just encountered were sent out for "assay
ing on Wednesday.
New  League   Council

New Community League
Council Holds First
The newly-elected councillors held
their first meeting on Wednesday,
the retiring president, O. G. Macintyre presiding. R. J. A. Manning
md C. A. F. Clark were proposed
for the presidency, the honor going
to Mr. Manning who thereupon
took the chair, voicing a graceful
tribute to his predecessor and to
his fellow-councillors. F. Dresser
was chosen vice-chairman, with H.
Gourlay as second vice-chairman.
One of the first actions of the incoming council was to confirm the
appointment of V. S. McRae as
Secretary and to ratify the work
done by him during the last two
months in which the Council has
not functioned regularly.
Chairmen of the various departments of the League were appointed
as follows:
Membership Mr. Shields.
House Mr. MacDougall.
Home and School Mr. Dunwoodie
Entertainment Mr. Gourlay.
Sports Mr. McKay.
Library Mr. Clark.
The Council asked for the cooperation of members in transacting
the business of th* League.- This,
they point out, will be facilitated if
members will approach the chairman of whatever department their
business is concerned with. In
this way members can avoid the
necessity of attending council meetings.
Character Training Will Be
Undertaken in Schools
Judging from a circular sent out
by the Education Department
character training is at last to receive something like adequate emphasis in the schools. The Minister
has asked all principals to report
"what definite efforts (if any) are
being made to meet the requirements of section 157 of the 'Public
Schools Act', which provides that
in every school the highest morality
shall be inculcated."
Thrift among the pupils and a
saving to the public is to be encouraged by the payment of half the
value of the book to eaoh pupil who
provides himself with a copy of
each free text-book required.

Granby Co. Have Done
Much Towards The
Province's Prosperity
One of the major mining companies of British Columbia, the
Granby Consolidated Mining, Smelting & Power Co. Ltd., contributes
a large share to the wealth of the
province. More than 2,300,000
tons of metalliferous ore were mined
and treated by the company during
1928. From these 11,080 ounces
of gold were recovered, 430,660
ounces of silver and 57,522,000
pounds of copper. In addition, the
company mined 146,000 tons of
commercial coal at its Cassidy property on Vancouver Island.
This is a considerable increase
over the 1927 production of gold
and copper, and a slight decrease
in the silver output. In that year
9,775 ounces of gold were produced,
55,411,711 pounds of copper, and
435,440 ounces of silver.
Since 1900 the company has mined
between 27,000,000 and 28,000,000
tons of ore. From this have been
recovered approximately 800,000,-
000 pounds of copper, 11,000,000
ounces of silver, 1,000,000 ounces
of gold, in addition to 2,000,000
tons of coal. Since that time the
company has expended between
$45,000,000 and $50,000,000 for
labor, about $35,000,000 for material, supplies and power, $35,000,000
have been invested, and $11,666,247
have been distributed to shareholders.
The company gives employment
to 2000 men at all its operations.
Among its current expenditures are
approximately $7,000,000 for labor
and materials, practically all of
which is expended in British Columbia.
New   Council   Elected

On the mandate afforded by ninety-
eight affirmative votes a meeting
was held on Friday, 19th. which
was attended by about twenty.
Nine nominees for the council were
obtained and on Monday 22nd.

K. MOSS, Editor aiid Publisher,
On page two of this issue is an
advertisement issued by the Department of Mines. It alludes to
three items of the "Mineral Survey
and Development Act," governing
the activities of mining companies.
Under this Act any mining company publishing advertisements, or
issuing any printed matter in regard
to their operations are obliged to
submit copies to the Resident
Mining Engineer, and also file
copies of the same in the office of
the Department of Mines at Victoria. It is the intention of the
Department to keep check on the
statements for public consumption
of mining companies who wilfully
misrepresent their ore tonnage and
values, so that the investing public
are at least protected in some degree from unscrupulous companies
who "mine the public'' and pocket
the proceeds. This strengthening
of the Mineral Act should not
work any hardship on the industry.
If the ore is not in the ground all
the statements to the contrary will
not place it there, and the quicker
the developing company and the
public realize it, the better for all
concerned. Hot air can not make
a producing mine or a prosperous
mining camp except in the latter
case for a short period. It takes
ore tonnage.
Official recognition of the value
of geophysical methods of locating
ore deposits has recently been
accorded by the Provincial Government, who by order-in-council have
decreed that the prospecting of
mineral claims by this method may
apply as "assessment work" under
prescribed conditions. A similar
provision was made in the Province
of Quebec a short time ago, but
with the stipulation that the prospecting must be conducted by certain specialist companies, which
were specifically named. Lik
precautions  are to be taken   in
Predicts Exhaustion Of
Metals and Oil In
One hundred years will see exhaustion of every oil, copper, lead,
zinc, silver and gold deposit now
known lo the world, in the opinion
of Dr. Benjamin L. Miller, head of
of the department of geology at
Lehigh University.
Miller admits, however, that other
fields probably will be discovered
before tbe known supply is exhausted, but adds: "there is a limit to
the number, and it is probable that
the decline in production before
many years will become noticeable."
"We can only speculate as to
what effect this will have upon tbe
civilization of a few hundred years,
hence," Miller says.
He declares that despite the often
repeated assertion that the world,
when all other natural sources are
exhausted, will be able to meets its
power requirements from water
power, that such is not the case.
"Although many people believe
that future generations will be able
to depend on water power almost
entirely, when the supply of fuel,
which is converted into power is exhausted, this is true only to a very
small degree," Miller said. "A survey of the entire available water
supply in North America shows
that even when this is developed to
its fullest extent it will only be able
to supply between ten and twelve
per cent of the demand, after allowing for a very conservative increase
in the rate of consumption."
The world's coal supply will be
exhausted in 400 years, Miller estimates.
Dr. Miller declares that during
the last 25 years more of the natural resources of the world have been
exhausted than during all the other
500,000 years of existence of the
human race.
''Husbands should share the
housework with their wives," says
a woman's paper. We despise
those selfish husbands who want
to do it all themselves."
British Columbia to ensure that the
work before it can be officially recorded shall be done under competent direction, but instead of the
limitations imposed by the Quebec
regulation, the responsibility of this
determination will be placed on the
Resident District Engineers, which
is preferable.—B. C. Miner.

B. C. Copper  Mining
Has Made Great
The first official record of the
production of copper in British Columbia was in 1894, when 324,680
pounds was produced, valued at
$16,234. Since then a fairly steady
increase in output has been maintained, with a production for 1928
amounting to nearly 100,000,000
pounds and valued at approximately
.;S14,500,000. This output of copper was a high record for the Province, being about 50 per cent, more
than the greatest production in the
War years, when 65,379,364 pounds
was produced in 1916.
After 1916 a decline in output
commenced, which culminated in
1922 with a production of only 32,-
359,896 pounds. This was the year
when the full effect of the post-war
depression in the copper industry
was most pronounced. Since then,
the record has been one of steady
The total production of copper
for the Province to the end of 1928
has been 1,469,304,652 pounds
(recovered content), valued at $236,-
027,359 (1928 productionestimated).
Copper easily leads all other
metals in total recorded value of
output, being not far short of the
combined production value of silver,
lead and zinc. It is, however exceeded by the total recorded output
of coal and coke, which has been
valued at $309,519,768.
Until now, British Columbia has
been the leading copper producing
Province of the Dominion, tbe output generally amounting to about
two-thirds of the Dominion total.
Recent developments'in Quebec,
Ontario, and Manitoba indicate
that British Columbia will have to
still further increase her production
in order to. maintain first place.

To Be Developed
Work is to be commenced very
shortly on the George Enterprise
property at the head of Bear River.
Equipment, including a portable
compressor, tool sharpener and
other fixtures, arrived the latter part
of last week and are now on their
way up the hill.
The George Enterprise is in con
dition to resume operations without
much difficulty. A good camp was
established last fall and will be put
into permanent condition this summer. Meanwhile the necessary-
lumber will be moved up to house
new plant.

New Steamer Will Run
From Prince Rupert
Some particulars have been received in regard to the new steamer
recently purchased by the Canadian
National Steamship Co. to ply out
of Prince Rupert in the coasting
business. She is a Greek vessel
built hy the Germans for mine laying in the North sea. Captain
Edgecombe, skipper of the Canadian
Coaster, has gone to the east coast
to bring her through the Panama
Canal and she is expected to arrive
in June for the summer business.
The new vessel, which has an
unpronounceable Greek name, is
150 feet long, draws eight feet forward and 10 feet aft, has twin
screws which will drive her at a
speed of 17 knots. She carries 150
tons of freight and has eight passenger cabins.

in B. C. lumber industry are approximately $200,000,000.

Although Canadians have been
styled strong "silent" men there
seems little to support the reputation in the recent announcement that tbey aire the world's

Tor a 'phone tor every eight persons. If all the conversations that
took place during the past year
were placed end to end they
would be heard in Mars, for every
citizen held on an average of 221
conversations during 1928. Presumably this does not include
wrong numbers.

were required to complete its reconstruction on its new lot.

Consolidated Makes   Big
Profit From Dump
A striking example of the change
in mining situation brought about
by improved metallurgical processes is found in tbe announcement
from Trail lhat when the remainder of the St. Eugene tailings at
Moyie have been pumped out of
lake and concentrated the Consolidated Mining & Smelting Co. of
Canada will have paid the total
expenses of mill construction and
operation and made a net profit of
half a million dollars.
These tailing were waste matter
after all tlie metal that could formerly be taken from the ore had
extracted. From this refuse the
company is cleaning up half a
million in profits.
Britannia Co. Makes Good
Net profit of the Howe Sound
Company, operating the Britannia
property, in British Columbia, and
the El Potosi and Calera mines, in
Mexico, amounted to $2,649,068 in
1928, compared with $2,142,115 in
1927. Howe Sound's metal production in 1928 amounted to 15,366 oz.
gold, 3,338,527 oz. silver, 42,201,-
548 lb. copper, 77,399,285 lb. lead,
and 59,378,637 lb. zinc.
Anaconda Has Huge Pay
Anaconda now has a payroll
throughout Montana of more than
$40,000,000 a year. In Butte alone,
the mining companies have a payroll of about 83,000,000 a month.
During several days in March, Anaconda reached a peak production of
1,000,000 lb. of copper a day.
British Columbia's population is
Cause of Break in Copper
The necessity for the custom
smelters to sell a reasonable proportion of their daily intake of copper
was directly responsible for the
drastic break in copper prices recorded during the last week.
Though this condition is entitled to
the direct responsibility, it was the
continued absence of demand occasioned by the unsettled credit condition in Wall Street, and a general
feeling that the copper price structure had become top-heavy, that
made this situation necessary.
Airplane  Cuts Time On
Northern Mail
Superiority of the airplane over
dog teams .in carrying northern
British Columbia mail'is illustrated
in the receipt by the Province of two
letters mailed on March 1 at Telegraph Creek.
The air mail letter reached the
Daily Province more than ten days
ahead of the one which went by the
ordinary post.
Well, now, what time do I have
to get to work mornings?" asked
the new hired man.
"Any time yon like," responded
the fanner, "so's it ain't later than
half-past four."
A Scotch salesman, held up in
the Orkney Islands by ,a bad storm,
telegraphed to his firm in Aberdeen: 'Marooned here by storm—
wire instructions."
The reply came; "Start summer
vacation as from yesterday."
