Option Taken on Toric by
Britannia Mining Company
An option has been taken on the
Toric mine by the Britannia Mining
Co. It is expected that development work will be carried on
throughout the winter. Several
men left Alice Arm a few days ago
in order to re-open the mine.
C. V. Brennan, of the Britannia
Co. accompanied by H. T. Airey
and R. H. M. Miller of the|Com-
pany's geological staff arrived
'yesterday from the south and left
at once for the mine.
Interviewed by the Herald, Mr.
Brennan stated that in regard to
''future plans nothing definite could
be said until an examination of conditions at the mine were made. He
[[also declined to make any staterhentj
in regard to price or length of option,
,artd stated that the Britannia Co. had
not yet divulged any information in
'this respect.
f The fact that the Britannia com-
jpany have entered the Alice Arm
district will give a decided impetus
']to the mining . industry. Rumors
fare afloat that other well known
properties may be acquired, which

"that a company who operate on

acquire as much ground as possible

In   The Toric is one of the wonder
mines of the province. It was
bonded by the Toric Mines Co. in
August 1924. Within a few months
they had cross-cut an ore body 65
feet wide.
During the past four years, they
did a considerable amount of underground work. Erected a mill that
is producing concentrates, and the
property is now in shape for big
capital to take over and following
further development, operate it on
a large scale.
The Toric is capitalized at $1,-
000,000 divided into 200,000 shares,
par value $5, of which 125,000
shares have been issued.
The Britannia Company are numbered' among the big operating
companies of the provincej At
their property at Howe Sound, near
Vancouver, they employ 900 men.
Last year they mined 1,395,586 tons
of ore, of which 1,349,591 tons
were milled, yielding 10,336 ozs.

Recently they acquired the.Ko_ok

Boy Scouts Will Assist With
Christmas Parcels
The Boy Scouts have made
arrangments with the Postmaster
Mr. W. F, Eve to assist with „the
heavy mail at Christmas. Plans
are being made for the Scouts to
deliver the parcels round town as
they are checked in.
Should anyone not agree with
this plan will they please give their
names to the Postmaster before the
20th. inst. and their packages will
be placed on one side to be. called
for.  <
The desire of the Scouts is to
help the community, .please refrain

The Christmas concert for which
the sohool children furnish the
program, will be held on Wednesday, Deoember 19th., in Reoreation

of town beautifiofttion has reached
the stage where fie streets are to
lie lined with shade trees. The
Townsite Department arranged to
deliver trees free! of charge to all
who will plant tMtn on their, house

first experiment.\; Those who want
them should inform the Secretary
A. C. L. immediately. The company will also encourage a^tpwn
clean-up in tlie spring.    .
Mr. Booking has donated to the
. League $350 of,.which he has desig-
of sport. Sweaters and trophies
will be purchased. The rest of the
money will be used to pay for the
re-decoration of Recreation Hall.
The Management of the Granby
Company have notified the League
that the fullest cooperation may be
expected in connection with the'
establishment of a summer camp
at Larcomb Island.
The false wall at the front of the
gym is to be replaced and wired
like the spectators' galleries. The
danger from splinters will be removed and accomodation for an
additional large number of spectators will thus be provided.
The Councillors reported complaints of parents to the effect that
tlieir children were being debarred
from the gym. There are two
days a .week when the smaller
sohool children are given the use of
the building, but there are also
many smaller children not of
school age who expeot admittance
at all times, The danger of'aoci-
dents makes limitations necessary.
Homeguard Mine Being
Bonded By Dalhousie Co.
Tlte Homeguard Group is being
bonded to the Dalhousie Mining
Co. of Victoria for the sulnfof
$60,000. The agreements haye^been
signed by the owners and it U expected that within a few days from
today the transaction will na,ve
been completed.
A small crew of men was pjiit' to
work on trie property by the TJal-
housie Co. this week. Development will be confined to drifting on
the silver-lead ore ledge which was
commenced a short time 'ago.
Work will be carried on throughout
the winter according to present
[plans. An examination of the property will be made in the spring,' by
the Dalhousie Co. Following the
examination future plans will ' be
made in regard to further development' work.
The Homeguard is owned by G.
W. Bruggy and Wm. McFarlane,
and an adjoining claim owned by
Chas. Gordon is also iucluded in
the deal.

For exactly similar reasons, boys
and girls from twelve to eighteen
should be taught by both men and
women. It is purely a question of
efficiency, The combined powers
of man and woman are no more
necessary for the procreation of the
physical child than is their combined influence necessary for the
proper training of boys and girls.
Boys need virile qualities to imitate
and manly strength as well as womanly grace to restrain them. Girls
need womanly ideals set before
them but they also need the influence of the critical virility of the
masculine mind and character.
Boys and girls alike need the refining, restraining, stimulating influence
of both men and women. In a
more or less blind instinctive sort
of way they recognize the need.
Boys are driven from the schools
by the lack of strong men in them.
They dislike the companionship of
women alone. A manly teacher
stimulates, all that is womanly in
school girls. It is as reasonable
to claim that the home is complete,
as far as the training of the children is concerned, without the influence in it of a strong man as to
claim that the school is complete
without the presence in it of a fairly proportionate number of virile
men teachers. Moreover, the
principle holds true whether the
school be co-educational or for a
single sex.—B. C. School Survey
Asks For Ore Sampling Mill
At Terrace
The Terrace Board of Trade is
asking the minister of mines for
information in regard to the possible establishment of an ore sampling works at Prince Rupert. The
board points out that such a plant
would greatly help small operators
and prospectors in financing tlieir
development work.
High Copper Prices Not
Due to Accident
Engineering and Mining Journal
In 1921, when the copper industry was virtually at a standstill, as
a result of the post-war depression,
the Copper and Brass Research
Association was formed by a group
of American copper mining and
manufacturing companies. Since
then the organization has made
notable progress under the direction of its president, Mr. R. L.
Agassiz, chairman of Calumet &
Hecla, and its manager Mr. William A. Willis. Today it includes
most if not all of the important
American-controlled copper producing and manufacturing companies. By an extensive and far-
Hung advertising campaign it has
dinned into the public ear, with
conspicuous success, the advantages
of copper as a durable and non-
corrosive metal.
Copper, with a thousand and one
uses, is more in demand than ever
before. Prices have risen in response to this demand, and the
producers are now iu a position
gradually to expand operations to
capacity. The industry is in a
sound condition. But this condition,
one must remember, is not a happy
accident. It is the result of foresight and one of the notable instances of that foresight was the
formation of the Association.

Canadian Copper Out-
Put This Year Will
Be Record
There is indicated an output of
Canadian copper during   1928  of
nearly 90,000 tons, with a value of
about $25,000,000, or 46 per cent.
i more than in 1927. This increase is
in accordance with   the   growing
world demand for copper, but it may
be pointed out that a considerable
percentage of the  world's  annual
output (20 per cent, in the case of
the United States) re-enters commerce as recovered metal; and that'
'the better understanding now arrived at between producers and consumers, will make for steadier prices
md consequently a better balance
i.tween supply and demand.    The
United States and Germany are the
world's greatest users of copper, the
brmer taking about 50 per cent, of
;he world's supply,  or only very
ulightly less than its own domestic
production,. Germany 15 per cent.
Mid other European countries 32 per
:ent.    During the last fiscal year
ibout 90 per cent, of the exports of
Canadian copper went to the Unite"4,
states and 10 per cent,  to Great
3ritain.   A large part of the'former
it least must eventually have found
ts way to Europe, and recently a
lirect trade in this metal has been
(jstablished between   Canada  and
South Africa Holds The

Another world's shaft-sinking
•ecord has been made on the Rand.
During the inonth of August, the

Cltis is not only a now record for

The Betty shaft has dimensions
