Gold Values at
Depth
Full Description of Property
Given and Smelter Returns
from Previous Shipments
That Alice Arm silver ores contain high values iii gold has been
conclusively proven at the LaRose
mine. Samples of silver ores taken
from the raise at the mine where
the ore was recently encountered,
were sent out for assaying to ascertain if the ore carried gold.    This
Rich Shoot of Ore Now
Being Mined at
Esperanza
A nice shoot of high grade ore
was encountered a few days ago at
the Esperanza by V. Stella, T.
Mack and associates. The vein is
about 14 inches wide and is known
to exist for a distance of 100 feet.
The ore is high grade and is
one of the best finds ever made at
the mine. Scheelite tungsten ore
is being found in considerable quantities, and some fine samples of this
rare metal was brought down a few
days ago.
week assay returns were received
showing that the ore oarried $22.00
in gold per ton, in addition to the
high silver values known to exist.
This sensational result considerably improves the value of the ore
and is of considerable importance to
the camp as it proves that the silver ores of Alice Arm are all liable
to carry gold values with depth.
Previous assays taken for gold
from the bottom of the shaft only
gave 40 cents per ton.
The silver ore at the mine is also
i increasing in richness. Recent
samples brought down are composed of solid ore, comprising massive brittle silver, and so.me grey
copper. It is similar to the ore
found at the bottom of the shaft,
which has created such a sensation.
Forty-two tons of this ore was
shipped a few years ago. The
smelter returns of the first shipment was $355.00 per ton, and the
; second $280.00.
The raise is being extended to
the surface, and when it is comple>
ted, stoping of the ore on both sides
I will be carried out.
Mr. Miles Donald who is in
[charge of all operations at the mine
•states that owing to the slides etc,
blocking the Dolly Varden railway
it will not be possible to ship ore
until some time next summer. If
■the railway could be used, shipments of ore would be made nest
month.
■ As soofi as the railway is repaired, lumber for the construction
;)f an ore shed, cook house, and an
addition to the buukhouse will be
taken up. The ore now being
•nined is being stored in the drift,

To date 596 feet of underground
I;»'ork has been done. The "first
tvork consisted of 420 feet of crosscut tunnel. The ore ledge was

1.40 feet. The drift followed what
[vas probably an old underground
I'ater course, as the ore was badly
pached. A raise was then started

Tennis Players Take Advantage of Spring Weather
The beautiful summer weather
prevailing during the past week,
was taken full advantage of by the
members of the Alice Arm Tennis
Club who played-several games in
ideal weather. The soft southern
breezes, reminiscent of May, and
the absence of snow on the ground,
is being enjoyed to the limit.
Sleighs snow shovels and skates are
taking a long rest this season. But
the owners of the shining blades
still hope that a few days of their
favorite sport may yet be enjoyed.

ANYOX NOTES     j
Well Known Anyox Couple
Are Married in South
A very quiet wedding was solemnized in Vancouver, on Monday
February 8th. at the home of the
officiating Clergyman, Bev. B. G.
McBeth, when Pretoria May,
youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
James Cane, of 1342 20th. Ave.,]
east was united in matrimony to
James Arthur, second son of Mrs.
W. Walters of Greenwood B. C.
The young couple left immediately after the ceremony for Seattle
and other sound cities, and on their
return will reside in Anyox.
be needed to bring ore to the railroad.
In addition to the ore shoot now
being developed, four more ore
ledges are known to exist. One of
these being only 150 feet up the
hill from the present workings, and
the second is at a similar distance
from the first one. The biggest ore
ledge is situated another 600 feet
higher up, and at another 1000 feet
a fourth is located. All these ore
bodies are known to carry values,
Each one parallels the other, running in a north and south direction.
Sinoe operations were commenced last summer, all work has been
executed with efficiency and economically. Overhead expenses have
been reduced to a minimum. The
company are putting the money
into the ground, and luxurious
offices and high salaried officers
—the downfall ofnumerons mining
companies—find no favor with the
company's Directors. Mr. Miles
Donald, a pioneer of tlie camp, full
of practical experience, is in charge
and there no doubt that under his
supervision the shareholders will
obtain full value for their money,
and perhaps reap a substantial
profit from their investment.

Portland Canal News, and mining
broker of Stewart, was a northbound passenger to Stewart on

E. MOSS, Editor and Publisher.
The recent visit to Anyox of
Archbishop DePencier. head of
the Anglican Church in British
Columbia, was greatly appreciated
by the people of Anyox and especially those who are members of the
Anglican Church. Visits of those
at the head of affairs whether religious, political, fraternal, etc. are
always conducive of good results.
It is encouraging to see that the
Church is becoming aware of the
benefits obtainable by visits from
those holding high office. The
Church still has a strong hold on
the masses, and if it is to retain
it, it must promote interest,
and this can be best acquired
by frequent visits to the
small communities of its chief dignitaries.
Criticism is part of the penalty
paid by those holding high political
office, and lucky indeed is he who
is not continually deluged with
criticism, often from unexpected
quarters. Nearly all of our cabinet ministers at Victoria have been
overwhelmed with criticism, except
the Hon. Wm. Sloan; minister of
mines. Mr. Sloan, of course, has
not emerged scot-free during his
term of office, but the small amount
of criticism he has received has not
impaired in the least his popularity.
Our present minister of mines is a
worker, and it is largely through
his unceasing efforts that the mining
industry of the province is in such
a healthy state. He believes in
giving publicity throughout the
world to our vast mineral wealth.
He also understands the hardships the pioneer prospector has to
contend with, and is ready to listen
to any legitimate request from a
mining district. The Hon Wm.
Sloan is without question the right
man in the right place. During
his term of office the mining industry has shown steady yearly progress, and the future of the industry
under his guidance, appears to be
even more bright than the past few
years.
Record Consumption  of
Copper
According to a compilation made
in one well-informed source, the
United States consumption of
copper in 1925 amounted to 1,662,-
342,000 lb„ a record for all time,
though closely approached by the
1918 consumption of 1,661,670,000
lb.
World's production is estimated
by the American Bureau of Metal
Statistics as 1,588.100 short tons,
in 1925.
Lots of English Capital
for Mining Investments
In B. C.
Money is abundant in England
for the development of Canadian
mining enterprises, if proper presentation of the holdings is made to
the capital by interested people in
the province.
Such was the message told the
British Columbia Chamber of Mines
at its luncheon in the Elysium Hotel recently by Stanley Hym-
ans, F. R. G. S., who has been here
for the past two weeks representing a group of Old Country
capitalists.
His principals, he declared had
between 200,000 pounds and 300,
000 pounds, available for investment in lead, oopper, silver or zinc
development. He was in the field
for prospects, he declared, and may
or may hot act.
Mr. Hymans said keen interest
was being taken in the old Country
in British Columbia mining devek
opment, largely by those who had
been connected with the rubber
boom.
The message Mr. Hymas conveyed was that British Columbia must
sell their ideas and mines to London by personal representation. It
would be some years, he felt, before
London would come to British Columbia. The salesman's essentials,
he declared, were proper surveys
and systematic progress reports.
These two factors would quickly
interest, he felt.
Mayor L. D. Taylor spoke briefly
complimenting the Chamber of
Mines for the interest it had taken
and the results obtained in forwarding the province's mining
interests.
Canadian Trade Increasing
Canada's total trade in 1925 was
$295,000,000 more than in , 1924,
due chiefly to increases in wheat,
meats and cheese, yet most people
are having as hard a time as ever
in getting sufficient bread, meat
and fats.
The total savings deposits in
the Canadian chartered banks
increased twenty-one million dollars,
during the inonth of November. If
this were let loose for the development of onr natural resources,
what a knock unemployment would
get.

Coastwise  Steamship   Coy.
Obtains Appeal Court
Decision
The Supreme Court of Canada
dismissed with costs the appeal of
the Premier Gold Mining Company
against the Coastwise Steamship
Company.
The question involved oonoerned
the liability of tho steamship company for a loss of a oargo of ore
valued at $17,600.
In 1922 a scowload of ore, owned
by the Premier Company, capsized
while being towed from Stewart to
Anyox. The owners recovered the
loss from the insuring company
and the latter in the name of the
Premier Company, sued the owners
of the scow to be reimbursed on
the ground that the vessel was uri-
seaworthy. Mr. Justice Gregory
dismissed the action, and an appeal
to the Court of Appeal of British
Columbia failed.
Gladys Gale Out on Bail
Gladys Gale, awaiting trial at
Okalla on a charge of murdering
James Donald at Stewart on January 1, has been released on
$10,000 bail.
No application for bail has yet
been made by Ruby Dolan, who
was jointly charged with the murder along with Gladys Gale.

J. Stark of the Dolly Varden mine
was down for a day or two during
the week. He reports that there is
only two feet of snow at the Dolly
Varden mine.
Al. Falconer is busily engaged
in falling timber on the hill above
the town. The road has been
repaired for hauling the logs to the
mill.
Don't forget the dance tonight
at the Alice Arm Hotel. Don't
forget the time, 8.30. And Don't
forget to come.
It is now certain that the camp
will enjoy a most prosperous summer. Plans for the development of
several mining properties are being
made. Some of these plans have
been made public and some have
not. Perhaps those that have not,
will be bigger than those that
have.
A week's work now would be
appreciated more than a month's
work in the summer by those who
are unemployed. Why not repair
the Dolly Varden railway now. It
can then be used, as it is, no one
can use it.
The big spring influx has not
commenced.     At least, that was
"the opinion of the Herald reporter
after a canvass of our leading hotels
this week.
At the time of going to press the
winter winds are beginning to
blow, and the hopes of the local
hockey players are beginning to
rise.
Although we have been enjoying
spring weather, it may yet turn
real cold. If it does your remedy
is to

which the? have performed their
work. Of the 750 men employed
underground, 271 lost no time on
account of injury aud seventy-eight

shifts without injury.
Body Found in Prince Rupert
Harbor Believed to be A.
Kelly from Anyox
The body of a man found in
Prince Rupert harbour last week is
believed to be that of Anthony
Kelly, who left Anyox about eight
weeks ago. He registered at the
Bayview Hotel, Prince Rupert,
and disappeared leaving his baggage at the hotel.
When found the face was unrecognizable, and the body partly
decomposed. Nothing was found
on the body to reveal identification.
In the clothes was found a tobacco
pouch and a few minor articles,
but no papers or money.
Furs Realize High Prices at
Montreal Sale
Last week's three-days' sale in
Montreal by the Canadian Fur
Auction Co. Ltd., realized $1,250,-
000; there were 10,420 Canadian
mink pelts sold at an average of
$39 each—-a record price and an
advance of forty per oent. on September prices Red fox was in
active demand also, 15,606 pelts
being disposed of, at prices ranging up to a record top mark of $28.
Fussy Dad
A small boy strolled into a butcher
shop, laid a dime on the counter and
ordered 10 cents' worth of dog bones.
'An' please give me some with more
meat on 'em this time," he asked. "Pop
said he couldn't get a mouthful off the
last dimes' worth."
