Bond Taken on Wolf
Property by J. Fiva
A bond on the Wolf property
has been taken by J. Fiva, and
agreements were signed during the.
early part of the week. Payments
are to be made over a period of
three years, and twenty-live per
cent of all smelter returns of ore
taken from the property during
that time are to be paid to the owner, J. Stark, as part payment of
purchase price.
The Wolf is owned by J. Stark,
and is in close proximity to the
town of Alice Arm. It joins the
Esperanza on the south, and Falls
Creek runs through the property.
Mr. Stark staked the property
many years ago, and small high
grade veins of silver ore are
known to exist on the property,
high assay values having been obtained at different times. It is the
intention of J. Fiva to surface
strip the most promising of these
veins, and a tunnel will shortly be
driven at a distance of about 200
feet from the Dolly Varden rail,
way. If conditions warrant ore
will be mined throughout the
winter. Transportation difficulties
are neglible as the ore can be
sleighed to the Government wharf
at a very small expense.
Surface stripping of the past
few days have been attended with
encouraging results, and a nice vein
of exceptionally high grade silver
ore has been uncovered.
Jfote—The above-mentioned is
distinct from the Wolf property of
the upper Kitsault country, owned
by the Dolly Varden Co. and has
no connection whatever.
Alice Arm Mining   In
Healthy State
In addition to operations on the
Toric, LaLose, Matilda and Devlin
Zinc several other promising prop-
ties are being developed in the
Alice Arm District.
Tunnel Being Driven on
Climax Property
Mr. 0. Besner, of Prinoe Rupert
was so well pleased with the ore
showings on the Climax; when he
made a recent examination of the
property, that before leaving he let
a contract for 75 feel of tunnel to
be driven. Work was commenced
last week, and it is expected that
this tunnel will prove up the ore
body underground, and it is probable that further development will
be undertaken should all calculations prove correct.
Messrs. A. McPhail and P.
Morley are engaged in extending
the crosscut tunnel on the Last
Chance property. They plan to
extend this tunnel a distance of
200 extra feet during the coming
winter, in order to obtain depth on
a particularly fine ore body. It is
calculated that a depth of about
160 feet will be attained when the
ore body is encountered, and the
length of the tunnel from the
portal will be 250 feet.
Al. Miner has completed a new
cabin on the Silver Horde property, and has now coinmenoed to
drive a crosscut  tunnel,   to  en-
i counter an ore body at depth,
which,  when   accomplished,   will
\ considerably enhance the value of
\ the property.
Ed. Pickett is busily engaged in
extending the underground workings on the Tiger, and latest reports are that Ed is encountering
considerable high grade silver ore,

that owing to change in boat service
it was impossible for copies of the
Herald to reach Anyox this week
earlier than Tuesday.
Rally Day Services Held
at Union Church
The Bally Day Service in the
United Church on Sunday,
September 0th. were nothing
short of a grand success.
A children's servioe was held at
11 a.m. The programme used
was the Bally Day programme
provided by tlie officers of the
United Church of Canada. This
will be used all over Canada during this inonth. Only a few alterations were made to suit local conditions. Enthusiasm was shown
in the singing of the hymns.
Recitations were given by Barbara
Lee, Nelta Robertson, Marion
Sawrey and Harold Hartt. A
number of girls from the primary
class sang that beautiful children's
hymn, "I am so glad that my
Father is in Heaven." The
pastor, Rev. C. D. Clarke, gave an
address on "habits and character"
illustrating the address by objects
and drawings.
This was one of the best rallies
in the history of the Sunday
School. There were eighty-nine
present, twelve of whom were
from the Sunday School at the
The attendance at the evening
Service was a record. Mr. Murdoch, rendered the solo "My Task"
and the Pastor preaohed an effective sermon on the subject The
Child in the Midst." He said in
part, "The child is the greatest
asset in the community. The
welfare of the nation depends upon
its attitude to child life. The
roots of manhood are deep in' the
soil of childhood. Child life is
plastic and is easily moulded.
Every Canadian child should receive a four square development,
intellectual, physical, spiritual and
social. Mr. Clarke emphasized the
spiritual development because "out
of the heart come the issues of
life." This development' is entrusted to the home and to the
Sunday School. He urged the
hearty support and encouragement
of all, in the Sunday School work.
Anyox  Win   Baseball
Game from Rupert
In an exciting baseball game
played at Prince Rupert on Thursday, Anyox won from the local
team by the score of 8-6.
The pitching of Brttoe, who kept
Prince Rupert down to one hit in
six innings, although he was touched for four in the seventh and last,
was the responsible factor for the
win of Anyox by a score of 8 to 6
in Thursday afternoon's baseball
game. Bruce fanned out only
seven of the looal batters, but he
had a puzzling delivery and the
Prince Rupert batters were not
able to connect effectively, although they found the ball on
several occasions only to pop it out
to the infield where they were
readily put out. The Anyox team
played superior baseball and were
fully entitled to win.

Trail Smelter  Steadily
All Concentrates From the
Company's Plant Will Now
be Treated at Home
With the bringing into full use
of the zinc plant and lead refinery
extensions at Tadanao, just completed or under completion, which
makes use or will make use of the
new hydro-electric power bein^
produced at Lower Bounington,
Trail has achieved a new distinction, being the seat of the world's
greatest uonferrous metallurgical
The new capacity added to the
Trail smelter's previous capacity
for turning out refined metals
makes the difference, and today
the great group of plants operated
by the Consolidated Mining and
Smelting Company of Canada,
which formerly was unique among
the world's ore reduction plants
for the variety of its output, is the
largest of its kind in the world
outside of the iron and steel industry.
Year in and year out there has
been expansion at Trail, one plant
enlarging, then another, then
others to keep pace with the lirst,
new departures have been made,
vast auxiliary services have come
into being. But these various developments have been thrown 'in
the shade by the expansion program of the last nine months.
Accompanying these last expansions has been the new power
development at Lower Bounington, where the West Kootenay
Power and Light Company, subsidiary of the Consolidated has developed hydraulically 00,000 h.p.
and electrically 40,000' h.p. for the
use of Tadanao, the second of the
20,000 units being on the eve of
coming in.
With the coming into action of
the new capacity to treat the
product of the mammoth Sullivan
mine at Kimberly, the shipping of
a portion of the Kimberly concentrates abroad, to the tune of millions of dollars worth, will cease,
and in point of fact the last ship
to carry Sullivan zinc concentrates
to Europe is now loading at New
During the period when the
Tadanao plants have been under
expansion to come up to the Sullivan's requirements, part of the
lead concentrates have been sent
to the Shelby, Cal. and East
Helena, Mont., smelters of the
American Smelting and Refining
company, and to the Bunker Hill
aiid Sullivan smelter at Kellogg,
Idaho, Excess lead bullion has
been sent to several refineries in
Europe. Excess zinc concentrates
have been treated at the Great
Falls, Mont., smelter of the Ana
conda Copper company, and' in
Copper Producers
are Not Worrying
The copper market missed scaling the 15c. barrier by a narrow
margin. Assisted by the July
statistics issued last Thursday,
which showed a further decline of
3,318 tons in refined stocks during
the month, sales were made by
producers at 14.95c. in the East
and at 15c. in the West on last
Friday. However, purchasers
were scarce at that figure, and
with the weakening in the London
market sellers have had to come
down to do business on Monday
ind subsequent clays. The July
statistics showed a decline in
foreign takings against an increase
here, so that some interests look to
Europe for increased activity.
The total volume of sales was nearly the same as last week, being
only about 40 per cent of the recent high week—that ending on
August 5. However, producers
ire quite comfortable, being generally well sold for August and early
September and they are not

Tremendous Blast
A great blast of 125 tons of

dynamite used for priming, was
successfully fired at the United

pit on the afternoon of August 11,
The development work, preparatory to the blast, in opening the
recesses for depositing the powder
in the most advantageous locations, was carefully planned by W.
Ellis and Joe Rice, of the Hercules

Stewart Prospectors
Are Defendants
John Haahti, better known as
John the Finn, and his partner
Thos. Kellins, both of Stewart, are
defendants in an action instigated
by David Fremento, when he issued a writ calling for an injunction against the Silver Slipper
Mining Company and alleging
fraudulent representations in the
sale of mining stock.
Haahti came into public notice
several years ago when he discovered the Silverado mine right
over the town of Stewart. Later
he was involved as defendant in a
breach of promise case.
Where the Gold Comes From
In the Witwatersrand Gold field
of the Transvaal area, the gold
mines produced and milled 26,538,-
875 tons in 1923 from thirty-nine
separate properties. The gold production was 8,904,401 oz., or yield
of $6.88 per ton. Working costs
averaged $4.86 per ton; operating
profits, $1.99; and dividends, $1.54
per ton. The average production
per mine was 680,484 tons.
On Their Holidays
After much excitement the
Smiths had at last managed to
catch the train.
Now when they could sit quietly
for a while, they began to wonder
if they had left anything behind.
Mrs. Smith gave a shriek.
"Oh, Harry," she gasped, "I forgot to turn off the electric iron!"
''Don't worry, darling," he replied, "nothing will burn. I forgot to turn off the shower bath."
