I INING OPERATIONS PROMISE RESULTS Work was commenced last week to build a mountain road from Black Jack mine to.White's Landing, a dis- tance of two miles, so that the silver and lead ore now being taken from tfhe mine can be handled with greater acility. The last shipment of ore sent to the mainland netted ahnost one htmdred dollars per ton. A new pier .Will be constructed at White's Land- lug. "There is a large ledge of ore of ap- Parently fair grade at the Black Jack mine and we are now taking out about five tons daily" said Mr J H Patrick President of the Santa Catalina Island COmpany. "As we go deeper into the naiue there is a vein some two feet in Width, which the experts estimate will ~oVerage $150 per ton. This vein seems be broadening and improving in quality. "The nfining operations at Black Jack will be thoroughly tested during the next six months. Although the elevation of the mine is 1,800 feet, the men are not experiencing much diffi- ~Ualty in getting the ore. The Santa talina Island Company has already built a very substantial camp near the mine and, with the new road in use, the cost of sending the product to the naainland smelters will be greatly re- duced. l"It is probable, if the vein proves" arge enough, or if other satisfactory cations are found on the Island, that !he Company will install its own smelt- Ul " . g plant at some place where it wdl not interfere with the visitors to our Pleasure resort.'

CHARLES FREDERICK HOLDER : Died October 10, 1915 ; INTEREST TO RADIO FANS Office of Radio Supervisor Customhouse San Francisco, California November 5, 1924. Editor Catalina Islander Dear Sir: According to information received from Major Lawrence signal officers Reserve Corps, U.S.A., operator of station 6ZW and experi- mental station 6XAD, some of the res- idents of Avalon have an erroneous nnpression of the regulations govern- ing amateur and experimental opera- tion; in fact, some of them seem to hink that amatures have no legal rights in the premises, whatsoever. To these latter it might be said that Major Mutt's station is properly li- censed and adjusted in accordance with the Government regulations and, hence, the only restriction imposed upon his station is between the hours of 8:00 and 10:30 P.M.; at all other times he has the same right to operate as any of the broadcast stations. In the present status of radio eom- nmnication it requires the unselfish co- operation of every person interested in radio communication in order that a satisfactory co-ordination of this ac- tivity can be obtained and, hence, re- ceivers of radiocast programs who are using non-selective apparatus have really no just complaint unless they have taken advantage of the scientific devices available on the radio market for the elimination of interference. Amateurs, throughout the country, are giving up the most desirable hours of operation in order that those re- ceiving broadcast programs may en- joy uninterrupted reception during those hours and, therefore, it seems tmfair to annoy these operators by complaints when they operate their stations at other hours. I shall appreciate it if you can Con- sistently publish this letter in the next issue of your valuable paper. Respectfully yours, J. F. DILLON, Supervisor of Radio, 6th Radio Dist. Avalon is growing. Many persons who livehere fail to recognize this fact, and very oftenfail to mention the different improvements going on when they are writing letters Send your friends a copy of The Catalina Islander once in a while. And, reader, are you a subscriber to the paper, so that you get a copy for yourself each week ? Word was received here last week from (2hicago that Mr. Frank E. I-{aud was ill and confined to his bed. Mr. and Mrs. Hand have been resitling in Chicago for the past year. "It
