Silver Crest Co. Commence
Season's Work in North
Another shipping mine will be
added to the list in the district during the coming summer, as soon as
equipment is installed on the Saddle
property at Hastings Arm, by the
Silver Crest Mining Co. who are
operating the property.
A complete tramway, consisting
of steel towers, buckets, cables etc.
left Vancouver., on May 11th. It
is the intention of the company to
instal the tramway as soon as possible. A camp will be established
at the top of the hill; compressors
will be installed, so that mining can
be carried on economically.
Development work on the Saddle
will consist of a drift on the vein
which has been traced for some 900
feet. This drift will give a depth
of over 200 feet below the collar of
the shaft where such good results
were obtained during last season's
development work.
The company will also again
carry on development work on the
Silver Crest at Stewart. This
property   lies   north   of   the    Big
Missouri, and diamond drilling will
constitute the major portion of the
work this year. Drilling will commence as soon as snow is off the
The Silver Crest Mines Ltd. is in
a very   strong   financial   position.
They have $40,000 in the treasury
for immediate needs, and as development work warrants, there will
be available any reasonable amount
to carry out the completion of their
The Silver Crest has now among
its stockholders, quite a number of
the old Big Missouri backers.
Among these may be mentioned Mr.
Gregory and Mr. DeHaset. The
latter being one of the directors of
the Silver Crest Company.
P. E. Peterson, of the firm of
Brewer and Peterson, consulting
mining engineers of Vancouver and
Victoria, will again be in charge of
operations, and under his capable
management big results can be expected.
T. W. Falconer Elected
Conservative Candidate
The conservative convention for
the purpose of nominating a candidate was held at Anyox on Wednesday evening. The name of T.
W. Falconer of Alice Arm was the
only one before the meeting and he
was elected unanimously as the
standard bearer for the Conservative cause of the Atlin riding in
the forthcoming election.
T. W. Falconer is well known in
the north. He was one of the
pioneer business men of Stewart
and later in 1915 moved to Alice
Arm and erected one of the first
business blocks in the town, where
he has since resided.
The meeting also elected officers
for the Atlin Conservative Association for the coming year, which
are as follows:
Hon. President, Hon. R. B. Bennett.
Hon. 1st. Vice-President, Hon.
S. F. Tolmie.
Hon. 2nd. VicePresident, J. C.
President, E. Love of Stewart.
Secretary-Treasurer, J. Scott of
Executive Committee: J. F.
Callbraith of Telegraph Creek; C.
Sands of Atlin; J. A. Anderson of
Alice Arm; E. Blundell. H. Selfe,
I. Bassett, G. A. Warwick, H. B.

Railway Open For Traffic
The Dolly Varden railway track
is now clear of snow to Camp 8,
and gasoline speeders are now being
operated to end of steel.
Much Business Carried
At I. O.D.E. Meeting
Collison of Kincolith Chapter I.
O. D. E. will attend an Anniversary service in the United Church
on Sunday, May 27. This decision
was reached at the May meeting
on Tuesday.
Mrs. McLachlan was elected
Echo Secretary and the Chapter
voted a donation to the Cenotaph
to be built in Prince Rupert.
Following an interesting address
by Professor Boggs, refreshments
wore served to a large number of
members and guests who welcomed
the opportunity of hearing the distinguished visitor. It was in anticipation of this lecture that the
meeting was postponed until Tuesday.
The musical program for the
occasion included a piano solo by
Mrs. McKay and vocal numbers by
Mrs. Pinckney with Mrs. Kent as
Development Work on
Musketeer Group
The Musketeer Group, which is
controlled by Messrs. R. D. Brown,
Fry, and Holmgren of Seattle, will
be developed this year. Ed. Pickett will be in charge of operations,
and he left yesterday with two
men, to commence work.
The Musketeer lies between the
Wolf and Tiger. It adjoins both
properties and is located in the
heart of the rich silver belt of the
upper Kitsault Country. It has
some splendid surface showings of
ore, and these will be developed by
open cuts.
The location of the Musketeer is
considered one of the best in the
camp. On the north is the Wolf,
whose wonderful surface showings
compare with anything on the
continent, and which has been
proved by diamond drilling to
carry good values at depth.
On the south it adjoins the
Tiger, where development has been
instrumental in developing a large
tonnage of milling ore, in addition
to shoots of extremely high grade.
Some development work was
done on the Musketeer in 1920,
but since that date, it has been
neglected. It is expected, however
that this year's work will considerably enhance the property and
that the Musketeer will soon be in
the producing class.
Interesting Lecture Given
on Democracy by Professor
To a large audience on Monday
night Professor Boggs presented
the case for the "necessity of revising our whole scheme of democratic
life so that knowledge rather than
prejudice may be the deciding factor in our life."
He pointed out that the dissatisfaction of leading thinkers with the
meagre achievements of democracy
is traceable to the two great difficulties which beset the upward
progress of government by the
peoplev These difficulties are firstly, the deliberate concealment or
perversion of truth by those whose
advantage is served by the obstruction of knowledge; secondly, the indifference of the average voter.
The remedy, said the professor,
lies in an enlightened public opinion
to which is given full freedom of
expression. Democracy, to protect
itself, must guarantee the ''free
interchange of ideas." As an
epoch-making example of the
power of public opinion, Professor
Boggs described the proceedings of
the Institute of Pacific Relations
as the "first real attempt of peoples
rather than governments to achieve
political co-operation."
Concluding, the lecturer traced the
uphill fight of the Anglo-Saxon
race to the advanced stage of self
government which it has achieved
today, reminding his audience
that further progress depended upon the acquisition of knowledge,
abandonment of prejudice and a
rational constructive use of the

nity League Extolled
By President
As Chairman of the meeting in
Recreation Hall on Monday night
Mr. O. G. Macintyre used the opportunity to present some interesting facts concerning the Community League to a large audience.
He showed that the movement had
grown out of a desire among the
residents to determine the nature
of their leisure time activities.
The League, said Mr. Maointyre,
now enrolls 61/4% of those on the
Beach pay roll. He made an earnest plea to non-members to affiliate
at once. To date, he said, the
League has disbursed some fifty
thousand dollars in Community
welfare work, including library
facilities, gymnasium upkeep, athletics, and picnics, etc. This year
again the league will maintain a
boat service to Laroomb Island.
Plans for a new and better gymnasium are ready. Suggestions
and discussion will be welcomed at
all council meetings. Dramatics
which have been allowed to languish will be revived again. Mr.
Macintyre also exhorted his hearers
to note the example afforded by the
hotel garden and to adopt a scheme
of beautification with the idea of
making Anyox "a finer, nicer, prettier place to live in."
Anyox P. T. A. Meeting

The regular May meeting of the

Speaking in the House of Com'
mons at Ottawa, D. J. Cowan, M
P. for Port Arthur, urged the encouragement of capital investments
in the development of the mining,
pulp and power industries of Canada, which afford full-time employment, three shifts a day, and are
not seasonal industries. He added:
"I believe if Canada, without losing
one bushel of her wonderful western wheat crop, can continne to
develop her mining industry, now
more than half the annual value of
the wheat crop; if she can continue
to develop her pulp and paper industry, now more than half the
value of the wheat crop to the limit
of the market to absorb that paper;
if she can continue to develop her
white coal that never goes on strike;
then I say to you she is marching
along the lines toward that destiny
that these rich natural resources
entitle her to among the nations of
the world."
The Anyox Community League
is worthy of the support of every
resident in Anyox. President O.
G. Macintyre, at a recent meeting
stated that sixty one and a half per
cent, of the Beach residents were
members. This is not enough; it
should be a hundred per cent,
membership. The Community
League activities are many and
varied, and whether or not one
pays his small monthly due he reaps
a benefit. Fifty thousand dollars
have been spent by the League
since it was organized, and the
people of Anyox have received
their money's worth. The officers
of the League are giving their time
lavishly to make it even more effie
ient than in the past, but to succeed
they must have the whole-hearted
support of everyone. If you are
asked to take out a membership
ticket, dig up cheerfully, or better
still, walk right up and say you ap
predate what is being done to
make conditions better in the camp
during the leisure hours. You
feel better and make the officers
of the League feel better by your
individual boost.

The pessimist, said "If it rains

Lode mining has only been in progress for about 25 years, and only about one-half of the Province has
been even prospected; 200,000 square miles of unexplored mineral bearing land are open for prospecting.
The Mining Laws of this Province are more liberal and the fees lower than those of any other Province
in the Dominion, or any Colony in the British Empire.
Mineral locations are granted to discoverers for nominal fees.
Absolute Titles are obtained by developing such properties, security of which is guaranteed by
Crown Grants.
Practically all British Columbia Mineral Properties upon which development work has been dono
are described in some one of the Annual Beports of the Minister of Mines. Those considering
mining investments should refer to such reports. They are available without charge on application
to the Department of Mines, Victoria, B. C. Beports covering each of the six mineral Survey
Districts are published separately, and are available on application. Reports of the Geological
Survey of Canada, Winch Building, Vanr-ouver, are recommended as valuable sources of information.
