D. V. R. to be Repaired
by Homestake Mining
Company
Ore   Bunkers  and   Mill  to
be Installed this Year
Arrangements have been made
with the Department of Mines,
whereby the Homestake Consolidated Mining and Development Co.
will repair the Dolly Varden railway, states Mr. A. C. H. Gerhardi,
managing director of the oompany
vflho arrived in Alice Arm from
Vancouver on Thursday
Mr.   Gerhardi stated  that this
work would commence today, as
the oompany were anxious that no
time be lost in transporting machinery, lumber etc.  to the Toric
mine.    It is estimated  that   the
railway will   be  repaired   in   six
weeks, and about six men  will be
employed.     The only thing that
j will impede transporting supplies
i is the amount of snow at Camp 8,
j after the repairing of the   railway,
i The upper end  is not in  need of
repairs.
The first work to be undertaken
■ this year at the Toric will be the
construction of ore bunkers to
supply the needs of the mill. The
mill .will be constructed this year
and will be commenced as soon as
the''&..'.kers,are completed. It is
expected that the mill will be operating by next, August.
The equipment of the mill will
consist of a Blake crusher, Allis-
Chalmers rolls, a Hardinge
enclosed circuit with Dorre olassi-
fier, with barrel amalgamation, and
Wilflrey tables. The tailings from
I • the mill will run into the Kitsault
river.
, Power will be supplied by a 120 H.
1' P. full Deisel Fairbanks Morse
,engine, having direct communication to a 75 k.w. generator.
1I The new superintendent, R. I).
LEscomb, has arrived from England.
He is at present working on the
.plans of construction iu Vancouver,
(and will arrive in Alice Arm as
'soon as construction is ready to
Commence.
New Company Develop
Bellevue Property
Word has been receive'd from
Vancouver that a oompany is
being formed there for the purpose
of developing the Bellevue property
in the Illiance river valley, and if
present plans mature development
work will be commenced during
the coming summer.
The. Bellevue comprises five
claims, and is located 13 miles up
the Illiance river. It was bonded
in 1921 by the Alice Arm Holdings
Co. Ltd: who did considerable work
with gratifying results. They
relinquished the bond in order to
concentrate development on a property, acquired in the Kootenay
country.
The main mineralized belt on the
property is from 25 to 50 feet in
width, and has been traced on the
surface for a distance of over 3,000
feet. Other small belts have also
been exposed.
Samples taken across 15 feet
from the hanging wall have averaged $1.40 gold 23.05 ozs. silver,
3.4 per cent lead and 5.4 per cent
zinc per ton.
The property is at an elevation
of 2300 feet.
Interesting Subject will
be Discussed at P. T. A.
Meeting
The regular monthly meeting
of the Parent-Teachers Association
will be held on Tuesday next,"
March 16th. at 7.30 p.m. in the
Public School. A discussion will
be headed by Mr. 11 H. Manzer on
the 6-3-3 plan as put forward by
Messrs. J. H. Putnian and G. W.
Weir iu the B. C. school survey.
The plan is one which, if adopted
will more or less revolutionize
the standing educational system in
the province. It provides for a
middle school into which children,
after spending 6 years in Public
sohool pass. Thus the period of
early adolescence 12-15, is spent in
a secondary school. The period
when the mind undergoes such
marked changes. The next 3 years
later absolescence are spent in a
high school. <A very wide range of
optional subjects have been suggested as part of the cirriculum.

B. MOSS, Editor and Publisher.
The mining possibilities of the
Alice Arm district are becoming
more widely known, and increased
interest is being taken in the camp
by mining companies and investors.
As the summer season approaches
this fact becomes more clearly defined. t It is certain that more mining properties will be developed
this year than has been the case
for a considerable time, and with
the advent of an increased number
of mining men who will examine
properties, the foundation for increased activity for the following
year will undoubtedly be assured.
Although the number of operating
properties will be increased this
year  it is not expected that boom
conditions will exist, unless thost
controlling the Dolly Varden undertake an extensive programme of
development and construction.   So
far, the intentions of the company
in this respect can not be learned.
It is possible that they may confine
their efforts this year to an examination, and formulate plans for the
following year.     At the present
time it appears that the camp is due
to a steady yearly growth,  which
will increase as more ore is developed, mills built and   shipments
made, either of ore or concentrates, j
If the people of Alice Arm wish
the development of the camp to be
stimulated, the power to do so lies
largely in their own hands.    We
have already   organized   a  local
branch of the B. G. Chamber of
Mines, and through its channels a
large amount of good work can be
done.    We are a small community
and to achieve success, consolidation is necessary.   The encounter-
iug of ore this year on the LaRose
and last year on the Toric, both of
which was done at a ridiculous low
cost, compared with the value of
ore developed, must convince even
the most skeptical that the camp is
worth advertising.     Now is th
time to take advantage of our opportunities.   If we don't, development will unquestionably be much
slower.
The only  successful  substitute
for luck is work.

Shipments
The Dunwell mine at Stewart
has commenced to ship ore. The
i first load arriving at the wharf on
February 22nd. A local celebration was held as the ore wagon
passed through town. There are
300 tons of ore sacked at the mine,
aud it is being brought down at
tlie rate of three tons per day.
Work at tlie mine is proceeding
satisfactorily with a crew of 30
men (the bunkhoiiBe accommodation is for 35) and the ore is being
"blocked out" as fast as possible in
order to determine the tonnage
available. None of the ore sacked
so far has been sorted. It is sacked
just as it is broken down and will
probably give gross returns of
about $100 per ton.

Premier Oliver Receives
Nibbles on P. G. E.
I have received what I might
call nibbles so far." Premier Oliver
said yesterday of reports that capitalists are now angling for the
Pacific Great Eastern Railway and
eonoomitant land subsides.
While no concrete proposals have
been laid before the Government as
yet, representatives of several
groups of capitalists have waited
upon the Premier recently to discuss with him the prospect of taking over the railroad, it is understood.
For the second time, Premier
Oliver telegraphed to Ottawa to
ask for a definite appointment
with the Federal Government to
discuss British Columbian request
for the return of the Peace River
block to Provincial control for use
in subsidising the construction of a
railway into the Peace River district.
This action followed the arrival
of a telegram from Hon. Charles
Stewart, Federal Minister of the
Interior, suggested that the Premier postpone his visit because the
present recess is an unsatisfactory
time in which to take up the land
question.
The Premier intends to meet the
Government at the earliest possible
date and is eager to secure an
appointment without delay after
tlie House reassembles.
Canada has the longest and
publicly-owned railway system in
the world—Canadian National, 22,
000 miles.

Conferred with Hon. W.
Sloan on Railway
Advices from Vancouver state
that Mr. A. C. H. Gerhardi manager of the Toric mine in the Alioe
Arm distriot, and Mr. George A.
Clothier, resident mining engineer
of tlie No. 1 district have been in
Victoria conferring with the Minis-
tor of mines, Hon. William Sloan
in regard to the immediate repairing of the Dolly Varden railway.
It is estimated that between $4000
and §4500 will be required to place
the railway in shape for light traffic, and those interested in the
Alice Arm district are asking the
Provincial Government to undertake this work.
Another proposal is that mine
owners of Alice Arm will advance
the necessary money and labor
providing the government will
guarantee repayment. Future
mining development of the district
it is claimed, depends largely on
the operation of this 18 mile railway.

Allenby Mill Grinding
Out Ore
That the present management of
the Allenby Copper Co., the big
subsidiary of the Granby, has satisfactorily solved the problem of
the reduction of the Copper Mountain ore, is indicated by the smooth
way in which the big plant is daily
grinding out its big tonnage of
approximately 2,000 tons per day.
Under the present efficient management; with a steady expanding
market, and with an almost unlimited quantity of ore to draw on, a
long and successful period of operation can be confidently looked forward to.—Princeton Star.
