Possibility of Election
Resulting in a Deadlock
Both Liberals and Conservatives May Fail to Obtain
Majority to Successfully Carry On
After one of the most fieroely
contested elections ever held in
Canada, the conservatives have
emerged victors, for they are the
only party who have improved
their standing, and it is very probable that when all returns are in
that they will have enough members to form a government, although it will be a very small
majority. Latest returns show
the conservatives in the lead witli
8 doubtful seats to hear from.
The conservatives swept Ontario
capturing 69 seats out of a total
82.   New Brunswick went almost
solid conservative, with ten seats
to ono lone liberal.
In the liberal stronghold of
Quebec, they' captured four new
seats, and made substantial gains
Nova Scotia and Manitoba. They
also gained seats in British Columbia, Prinoe Ed'ward Island and
Alberta. In Saskatchawan they
failed to make an impression and
are at present not represented, but
live seats are in doubt.
Following is the standing of the
parties, received late last night
via radio, by A. D. Yorke.

Hon. W. L. Mackenzie King,
former premier, was defeated in
York North, Ontario, by Col. T.
H. Lennox, conservative.
Rt. Hon. Arthur Meighen,
leader of the conservative party,
is having a hard light at Portage
LaPrairie, Manitoba. His opponent is Harry Leader, progressive,
and the seat is still in doubt.
In addition to the defeat of McKenzie King, six of his cabinet
ministers also went down to defeat.
They were: Hon. J. E. Sinclair,
Queens, Prince Edward Island,
defeated by Donald McKinnon,
conservative.
Hon. W. E. Foster, St. John-
Albert, New Brunswick, defeated
by Col. M. McLaren, conservative.
Hon. Vincent Massey, Durham,

I'rt'ith nine seats, including three

Geo. Nickerson loses his deposit,
Knot having obtained the required
1'iumber of votes.
Hon. Drury, former progressive
[premier of Ontario was defeated at
■Simcoe, by W. A. Bogs, conservative.
The Azurite left Anyox at 1
a.m. on Sunday morning with a
party of enthusiastic sportsmen,
their destination being Queemas
Bay. They arrived there at 6 a.m.,
when preparations were made to
get out the small boats, and divide
the party into small parties, and
go in quest of ducks and whatever
other game was unfortunate
enough to come in range of their
deadly shooting irons. A fair
bunch of ducks was reported to
their credit. The party consisted
of Messrs. F. Brown, 0. J. Hutchings, Geo. Leslie, R. Moore, H. O.
Jones, D. Ballentine, C. Harman.
S. Wilson, J. Hill, C. Cane, H.
Chapman, S. Herrin, T. Almas, S.
Brewster and H. Selfe.
The party left on Sunday evening at 7 p.m. and arrived in Anyox
at 2.45. a.m. Mr. H. O. Jones
took his yacht, the good shipi
"Sparkplug,"' with him on this
trip, and after giving it loving
care and attention while being
towed through the Nass by the
Azurite astern, thought he would
retire into more oomfortable
quarters of the cabin until they
tied up in Anyox, when Capt.
Jones was somewhat dismayed to
find his boat entirely submerged
and hanging up by the painter astern of the Azurite.
Fred Stork will again take his
seat in the Parliament House at
Ottawa, but whether it. will be
as a member of the government
or the opposition, seems doubtful
at the time of writing.
Hon. Mackenzie King
Denies Resignation
Rumors
In a statement made by Mackenzie King late yesterday afternoon
he denied resignation rumors that
had been circulated. He said that
should the vote be very close when
all returns were in, it was probable
that he would put the question of
carrying on to a vote of confidence
iu the House, and if the government could receive sufficient support they would oontinue to oarry
on. Nothing, however, will be
done until he has had a consultation with the Governor General.

Fred Stork Elected in
Skeena by Huge Majority
Alice Arm, Anyox and Stewart Favor Bushby, but
Premier, Prince Rupert and Smithers are Storks
Fred Stork, liberal candidate
for the Skeena riding has been elected by biggest majority obtained in
the history of the Skeena district.
The latest returns giving him a
majority of over 1300 over Geo.
Bushby, the conservative candidate. Thus spoke the people of
the Skeena riding on Thursday,
October 29th. Geo. Nickerson
progressive candidate, is trailing
along well in the rear, and at no
time during the count was he in
the lead.
Alice Arm, Anyox Beach, Anyox
Mine and Stewart each gave
Bushby a small majority, but the
Premier Mine went heavy for
Stork. Prince Rupert and
Smithers also rolled up a big
majority for Stork, as did a lot of
smaller towns.
Following is the vote from
twenty-five polling stations.

for his valuable work in taking
care of the local exhibit in the
south.
Some discussion arose regarding
the ore display sent to the Prince
Rupert exhibition. Tlie secretary
stated that he had not received
any acknowledgement of ores, nor
had he anf information regarding
the disposal of the medal won for
the best exhibit of zinc ore by the
Devlin Zinc property. The secretary was instructed to write for
information.
It was felt by a number of those
present that a display of ore
should be exhibited at some prominent place in town for the benefit
of mining men visiting the camp
Mr. G. Bruggy offered the front
of his old store for this purpose,
which was accepted, and it was
decided to commence the building
up of an ore display, which would
eventually include every mining
property in the district.
The secretary was also instruct-
to write to H. Browning, secretary
of the Chamber of Mines, regarding the installation of a small mill
on properties, and obtain some ill-
formation iu this respect; also to
thank the headquarters of the
Chamber of Mines for their attention to the Alice Ann ore display
recently sent.
The secretary informed the
members that anyone desiring to
list their property with the Chamber of Mines could now do so. He
had received a number of blank
forms for this purpose.
After some discussion it was decided to hold a meeting once each
month, and as no further business
came up, the meeting adjourned.

K. MOSS, Editor and Publisher,
Alice Arm District Is
One of Most Attractive
says Geo. Clothier
A summary report of mining
operations for the first eight
months of this year has recently
been issued by the Provincial Department of Mines. Mr. Geo.
Clothier, mining engineer for
north-western district, published
an account of mining properties
that are being developed in this
district, including the Toric mine.
In regard to general conditions
in the district, he says;
"The Alice Arm country has
been unaccountably inactive for
the past two or three years notwithstanding the many meritorous
showings which in my opinion
make this section one of the most
attractive for investigation in the
district. The rather sensational
development of the. Torio property
is an outstanding example of the
probabilities of this area."'
In regard to development work
on the Torio, Mr. Clothier says:
"This property was bonded by
the Consolidated Homestake Mining and Development Company,
Limited, iu August, 1924, and has
been under steady development.'
ever since, with A. C. H. Gerhardi
in charge of operations. Sincei
last year's report a considerabk
amount of development work has
been done underground, totalling
about 600 feet exclusive of the
main crosscut tunnel from the surface to the vein. This work consists of three crosscuts through the
vein, a drift of 125 feet oh the foot-
wall of tlie vein, and a drift of 80
feet in the hanging-wall of the
vein, demonstrating the strike to
be approximately east and west
and the dip from 35 to 45 degrees
north. The middle crosscut, just
west of the fault, exposes the
mineralization for a width of 130
feet, which would make the actual
width of the vein about 70 feet at
this point. The vein has been
proven for a length of about 200
feet with the underground work,
whioh gives rather startling tonnage figures above tho tunnel to
the surface. The ore body has
been thoroughly sampled underground by tho company, but I
have no information as to the
average values obtained. Native
silver can be seen in many places
along the crosscut as well as argentite and ruby silver, but if the
whole will average a milling grade
of ore it is certainly one of the
most important developments 'in
the country this year."

arriving at Prince Rupert Friday
6.00 a.m., and Vancouver Sunday
7.00 a.m.
Engineers of the Department of
Railways and the Pacific Great
Eastern Railway have been mak
ing a survey of physical conditions
along the line and they report to
tho Minister that in order to maintain the railway line between two
aud three million dollars will have
to be spent during the next three
years on replacing bridges and
trestles. It will also be necessary
to alter the grade in some places.
The greatest expenditure is necessary at Lillooet. There the rail
way crosses the Fraser river on a
trestle approach and timber bridge
The approach on the east side and
the whole location of the grade is
poor and the structure is deteriora
ting. The proposal is to re-locate
the line so as to carry it througl
the town of Lillooet and cross tin
Fraser by a steel bridge in the
vicinity of the present traffic
bridge where a much shorter span
would be required and on the site
of the present bridge. A report
on the whole matter will be laid
before the Legislature.
Big Increase This Year In
Provincial Mining Industry
Figures prepared by the Provincial Mineralogist and presented
to the Minister of Mines show that
the mineral output of the province
for 1925 will be at least approximately $60,000,000, or nearly one-
fourth more than in 1924, which
was a record output. The value of
mineral production last year was
$48,704, 604, while for the first
.eight months of the present year
the. production has totalled approximately $41,000,000. The
production of gold shows a large
increase, and greater output is also
seen in coal and zinc, while smelter activity is evidenced by a big
increase in the output of coke.
Alberta Oil Refined in B. C.
For the first time in the history
of the west, Canadian crude oil has
been moved in quantity from
Alberta to the coast for refinement and sale. Oil from the
Royalite No. 4 well near Calgary
has been received in tank oars at
loco and has been refined into
gasoline and kerosine at the Imperial Oil company's plant there.
Owing, however, to the high
freight rates on oil crossing the
mountains it is not profitable to
transport, refine and market Alberta oil in Vancouver in competition with that from California,
Mexico or Peru, transported by
tanker ships.
Generosity is not measured by
how much you give, but by how
much you have left after giving.

The season's development on
the Toric mine, owned by the
Consolidated Homestake Mining
and Development Company, Limited, has resulted in a total of tunneling of 870 feet, of which 655
feet are in ore, either in orosscut-
ting or drifting on the ore bodies.
The cost of this work has been at
the remarkable low figure of $12.-
46 per foot. As a result of this
work there has been disclosed over
300,000 tons of unliable ore, composite sampling of which shows an
average of .35 ounces gold, and
17.20 ounces silver. The average
width of the veins encountered is
70 feet. Development work has
been temporarily discontinued due
to the fact that there is no available dumping space, and it becomes the need of the company to
push their concentrator construction. This work, started late in
the summer, has resulted in the
foundation being completed, but
due to the weather, even this work
had to be discontinued. It will be
started again on April 1st. and by
the end of July, the management
anticipate a 50 ton pilot mill concentrating unit will be completed.
The management have made plans
for the installation of a Harding
ball and a Harding pebble mill.
Amalgamating barrels will take
the How of both the primary and
secondary grinding. By this process, tests show that 63 per cent,
of the values can be recovered and
the balance of the values will be
recovered over concentrating
tables.
The result of development showing such a large body of ore of
unliable grade and the indications
of which give assurance of continuing at depth, bring again into
prominence the mineral possibilities
of the Alice Arm district, and,
with the completion of one unit of
the mill, which the Toric management has in process of construction, will bring into the revenue
list of producing mines, another
property which, when fully equipped, might easily prove to be an
outstanding producer in the province.
The Consolidated Homestake
management state that never has
the Toric, since it was bonded by
them, been offered for sale to the
Granby or any other mining company or mining interests. It is
the full intention of the present
management, directorate and
shareholders to bring the Torio to
the producing stage with the expenditure of its own shareholders'
money.—B. C. Financial Times.

More Copper Deposits Found
in Sweden
Deposits of copper ore, recently
discovered at Skelleftea in the
north of Sweden, have been declared by mining experts to be the
argest copper finds discovered in
Europe for many years.
It lias been pointed out as a
coincidence that the discovery of
these deposits happened in the
same year as the celebration of the
seven hundredth anniversary of
the great copper mountain mining
company, said to be the oldest industrial corporation in the world,
which in the 17th. century alone
produced more copper than any
other country in the world.
