Ore Encountered East
Side Of Toric Fault
Development work at the Torio
is aaain in full swing after a cessation of about two months, due to
the inability to freight in supplies
during the spring thaw.
Since operations were commenced about two weeks ago, ore has
been encountered on the east side
of the fault states Mr, A. G. II.
Gerhardi, managing director of tho
Homestake Mining & Development
Co,, who are developing tho Torio.
The ore body east of the fault
has boon encountered on the hanging wall section. Drift No. 1 east
is being advanced at present to
encounter the foot wall section of
the ore, approximately 50 feet east
of the fault.
it lias been decided to erect a
concentrating mill this year having
a capacity of 50 tons of ore per
day. Tho mill will be located
about 60 feet south of the portal of
the tunnel and excavation work is
almost completed.
The new gasoline speeder which
recently arrived is giving entire
satisfaction and supplies of all
kinds are being freighted in over
the Dolly Varden railway to Camp
The Torio has all the earmarks
of being developed into a mine of
the first magnitude, and the progress of development work is being
watched with great interest.
Work Has Cnmmpnrprl
On LaRose Tunnel
Work was commenced this week
on! the development tunnel at the
La Rose mine. The work is being
done by, Messrs. Neil Forbes, Fred
Martinson, Bert Burtleson, Jack
Garret and Phillip Stable, who
have taken a contract to drive the
tunnel, which is expected will be
about 400 feet in length. These
men are all hard rock miners, who
have handled local contracts previously, and no trouble will be experienced in putting the bore
through in quick time. The drilling will be done by hand.
Public School Boys Win
Football Sweaters
A splendid four game football series
has just been completed between the
Granby Bay High School and Anyox
Public .School. Weekly matches have
been played and what the boys lack
in the liner points of dribbling and
shooting they make up in vigor and
enthusiasm. The kindness of the
1\ T. A. in donating 1 set of sweaters
for competition and tho courtesy of
the Community League in allowing
the boys tlie use of the Held on
Wednesday alternoon have done
much in promoting the interest of
the boys.
The first game was a draw, but the
second was won by the High School
hoys who took possession of the new
sweaters until they should lose them.
The third game was a draw with the
Public School boys fighting hard to
bring home the stripes. At last, on
Wednesday being beaten by a 1 to 0
score, the older boys being forced to
hand over the sweaters amidst great
jubilation. Mr. Robertson's boys
shall claim the right of ownership until they can be defended again in the
fall when it is hoped to resume the
In another yeir Mr. Mitchell hopes
to obtain another set of sweaters so
that each school will have its own
colours and the donation of a cup
might bring out even keener competition than when the boys playing
for individual sweaters which might
pass to their rivals following a week's
treasured possession.
Sunset May Be Again
Mr. H. Bowyer arrived in Alice
Arm ou Monday from Seattle, and
left on the following day for the
Sunset property on Roundy creek.
Mx. Bowyer will make an examination of the Sunset on behalf of
the Keystone Mining Co., who had
an option on the property, but
failed to live up to their agreement. It is the intention of Mr.
Bowyer to thoroughly examine the
property, and if his report is favorable, the present tangle will be unravelled.
Development Work on
Standard Progressing
The Granby Co., who are developing the Standard property on
McGrath mountain are now settled down to active development
work. The construction of the
camp has heen completed, and the
pack horse trail has been completed to the camp. The work of surface stripping the ore bodies is
now being oarried on.
Surprizes Sprung By
Youthful Tennis Players
Another Mixed Doubles Handicap Tournament has successfully
passed into history, leaving pleasant memories in the minds of all
the participants. Held on Sunday,
under ideal weather condition <<,
and with a large entry list, the
games were at all times interesting, and often exciting; the brand
of tennis displayed being uniformly good.
The first prize went to Mrs. J,
Cody and Mr. Archie Smith, who
badly upset the handicap dope and
surprised everyone by the steadiness of their playing throughout
the day. Second prize went to
Mrs. L. McQuarrie and Mr. A. S.
Nickerson who, as a team, were
another example of what can be
done by perseverance, and the will
to win, combined with fleel.ness of
foot. All four players of the prize
winning teams" are comparatively
new players, making their wins all
the more meritorious.
A special prize was won by Mrs.
H. Speight and Mr. O. G. M'o-
Intyre, who, as a scratch team, by
stifling play, went through the entire tournament without losing a
The several prizes were presented by Mrs. Chas. McLachlan, wife
of the genial President of the
Community League. The thanks
of all the players are due to the
Secretary, and officers of the
Executive Committee, for the able
manner in which the details of the
Tournament were carried out.

through the press, of thanking all
the ladies who took part in the
baseball game played in aid of the
Union Church, also the gentlemen
that coached them, the Anyox

Community League who loaned
the equipment for the game and
the Gymnasium for the dance, and
all the ladies who helped with the

Anyox Girls Are Rari^
To Go
Wednesday, June 24th. lias been
the day set for the return game in the
Ladies' baseball series in Anyox.
Both aggregations are determined to
win the coining fixture. The Mine
girls are anxious to uphold the name
created by themselves in the first
match whilst the Beach girls are de
termined to stage a come back. Supporters have lost none of their
enthusiasm and a bigger crowd than
ever is expected to be on hand next
The Catholic Girls have charge of
the affair and all have been working to guarantee success in the dance
which is to follow. Owing to the
nature of the occasion an effort will
be made to organize an excursion
from Alice Arm to allow the home
town boys to sit in at the game and
enjoy the dance which has always
proven to be one of the most popular
affairs of the spring season.
Mine Melodians Entertain at
Billed as a "Short Snappy Dance,"
the Melodians Of the Mine Club enter-
tained in their hall on the hill on Monday evening, when a fair sized gathering enjoyed a dance programme carried out with that particular "zip"
now so pleasantly associated with any
affair put on by the Mine boys. The
evening was the first of a series ot
shorter dances, timed to be open
promptly at 8.30, yet it was nearly an
hour later before the first arrivals put
in an appearance. But further attempts, will be made to popularise the
earlier hour-especially during the
"off" season. Much pleasure was felt
by the boys at the presence of so
many friends from the Beach, and
among the dance numbered enjoyed
wore: "Blondy" and "Moonlight and
Roses' two of the most recent hits
published. The Mine ' 'jass-hounds"

in fine form. During the evening icecream was very kindly donated by S.
Solonka, to whom thanks are due.

Mr. Wm. Alexander Hogg passed away very suddenly at his
rooms in the Cement Block last
Saturday morning. The deceased
was 41 years of age, a native of
Belfast, Ireland, and has been
working for the Granby Co. for the
last two years.
The funeral took place on Monday, June 15th., and was well attended by the local returned men,
as the deceased was an Imperial
Veteran of the late war.
Rev. Brayfield was the officiating
clergyman and Geo. E. Tate had
charge of all funeral arrangements.

Distinguished Visitor
Colonel Royal Burritt, head of
the B. P. O. Elks throughout Canada paid a visit to the local Lodge
last Thursday. Col. Burritt was
met at the boat by a delegation
from the local Lodge, headed by
Exalted Ruler Barney Buck, and
was shown as much of the town
and plant as time would allow.
He returned on the same boat,
after having been the guest of the
local Lodge at a luncheon at the
Bluebird Cafe, with all the officers
of the Lodge attending.
Anyox Baseball and
The Beach football eleven were
successful in the first round of the
Anyox cup, when they trounced
the Mine on Tuesday evening,
eight goals to one. The Miners
were not up to full strength and
were playing with ten players.
The score clearly indicates the
play, the ball being at the Mine
end during most of the contest.
In a wild and woolly exhibition
of baseball on Monday evening,
the Mine defeated the Smelter by
an eleven to three count, Jimmy
Ferguson hurling for tbe winners
was in fine form, allowing only
five scattered blows. Ross on the
mound for the losers was hit rather
freely, this coupled with miscues in
the infield was responsible for six
runs in the lirst frame and four in
the second.

The presence of the minister of
mines, and the minister of public
works in Alice Arm during last
week, was a source of great satisfaction to all residents of the district, irrespective of their political
leanings. Both ministers were
able to study our problems at close
range, and both doubtless realized,
after inspecting the Toric mine,
that Alice Arm is worthy of the
support of the government in working out its destiny. The visit of
the ministers will make it much
easier for our member, Bert
Kergin in bringing local affairs to
their notice, and nothing but good
can accrue from the visit.
Elks Defeat Miners In
Baseball Game \N:
The Elks diluted up level with the
Miners on Thursday last week,
when they defeated the latter by a
five to two score. The winners started off with a rush in the first frame
when they got to Jimmy Ferguson
for three singles; a couple of errors
and a passed ball allowed four runs to
trickle over the plate. The Miners
scored their two in the fourth on an
infield error, a hit and a sacrifice fly.
The Bills got their final run in the
sixth wheti McDonald singled, stole
second, went to third on Brown's
sacrifice and scored on Sheen's single
to left.

B. C. Mineral Output
Last Year Made Big
The copper output for 1924 was
64,845,393 tb., valued at $8,442,-
870, an increase over last year's
output of 7,125,103 lb., or about
12.5 per cent.
An enormous increase is recorded in the production of lead, the
value of the output for 1924 being
$12,415,917, as compared with $6,-
321,770 in 1923, the largest previous year's production. This
great increase of 73,721,309 ft. is
chiefly due to a much greater production from the Sullivan mine.
The outlook for lead maintaining «
high market price of from 9 to 10
cents a pound is excellent. In
creased world demand and a difficulty in keeping production up to
the demand accounts for this high
price, which is about double the
average pre-war price. As a result, lead and silver-lead properties are in keen demand, and many
companies have scouting engineers
in the field to acquire such prop,
The gold output for the year
amounted to $5,541,285, an increase ef $1,416,291 as compared
with 1923, or 34.3 per cent. A
steady increase in gold production
during the last five years is to be
noted, and the output is now back
.to the normal figure of around
$5,000,000 annually.
Silver production for the year
was $5,292,187, as compared with
$3,178,129 in 1923, or an increase
of 42.4 per cent. This increase
was due chiefly to a larger output
from the Sullivan mine, and also
increases from the Premier and
Hidden Creek mines. Increased
lead and copper production alway:
means an increased silver-output,
as the latter metal is found in
association with lead and copper

Midnight Mine at Rossland
Proves to be Another
A rich strike is reported on the
Midnight claim, about two miles
west of Rossland near the old Silica station and adjoining the fa-
moiH I. X. L. mine, which latter
mine abandoned in the early days
by the then operators, has given
up vast riches to the local syndicate of eight miners who took a
lease on the old mine from John S.
Baker of Tacoma, Washington,
the owner.
Work was started soon after the
lease was consummated, and a tunnel was driven in right along the
line of the I. X. L., but nothing
was diseoverered until Saturday,
when the men encountered a vein
of very high-grade ore about 12
inches in thickness.
Samples of the ore reveals the
gold in veins running through the
rock, in some instances about an
eighth of an inch in thickness, while
some quartz taken from the vein
is literally spotted with gold about
the size of grains of rice.

Wildcat Mining Companies to
be Investigated by
With the purpose of weeding out
from the numerous legitimate mining
company promotions, a certain few
which have devoted practically their
entire effort to stock-selling or "mil*

termed among mining men, the provincial department of mines is conducting a quiet investigation in Vancouver and Victoria, it was learned in
mining circles recently.

a cabin at the latter town on June5th.
He had retired for the night apparently in perfect health, and the next
morning he was found to be dead.
Deceased operated a restaurant during his stay in Alice Arm.
He was born in India of English
parents, and at an early age was
brought to the United States. Of his
early history or present relatives,
little is known. He was among the
first to answer the call of the north in
the Yukon gold stampede, and had
been in practically every prominent
camp in the Yukon, Alaska and
British Columbia. He was a charter
member of the Nenana Igloo, Pioneers

No Restriction Lifted on Log
It having come to tha notice of the
Minister of Lands that more logs are
being cut at present than the market
will absorb he has notified the Loggers' Association that the government
has no intention of relaxing its regu
lation with regard to export, and that
should the market become glutted by-
reason of operations carried on with
the knowledge that there is no market
to absorb the product export to relieve the congestion will not be allowed. Hon. Mr. Pattullo states that
permits for the export of logs from
timber licenses are only one half of
last year's figures. He adds that the
present situation proves the absurdity
of the contention that mills were being constructed across the line for the
purpose of cutting logs taken over
from this province.
The man who does an ill turn
seldom will forgive you for it."
