Mill For Independence
That1 the American interests who
have taken over controlling interest
in the Independence intend to let
no grass grow under their feet in
putting this property on a productive
basis, is indicated by the remarks of
Charles Durrwachter, the examining
engineer, with whom negotiations
were made, at the ratification meeting of shareholders held recently  in
" I may say that we are going
ahead as planned to put in the tram
and plant in the spring and will
have 100-ton mill operating by next
fall," Mr. Durrwachter said. " We
are just completed the purchase of
the plant now, so as to have everything on the ground to go ahead
with the erection work as soon as
the show disappears."

Further financing arrangements
have been completed say3 the
Interior News to continue the work
on tlie Sunrise mine at Hazelton,
according tO'a statement credited
to W. S. Harris, who is in charge
of the operations on several properties in that district. Mr. Harris

largely to extending the main tunnel oi) that property for another
300 feet or more.
A compresser plant has been forwarded to the property for the new

Al. Harris.
Sam Trethewey was recently on
an inspection trip to his property

Heavy Grain Business
From Rupert
The Japanese-freighter Ypres
Maru, which arrived at Prince
Rupert this week from the Orient
to load grain, will be the largest
oargo vessel that has ever loaded at
the port. A good deal larger than
former grain boats loading there,
the vessel is of 6,783 tons gross.
Her length is 425 feet and beam 53
feet. She was built in Japan in
1820. She will load full with some
350,000 bushels of wheat for the
United Kingdom or continent.
Other grain carriers are expected to arrive almost immediately.
Grain is moving from Prince Rupert in considerable volume.
Stewart Advocates Road
For Rupert
That Prince Rupert and Stewart
are the only ports of importance on
the Pacific coast of British Columbia that have not highway connection with the Interior and that
this condition should be remedied
giving such parts motor roads as
well as railroads was asserted in a
letter received recently by the
Prince Rupert Board of Trade from
the Stewart Board of , Trade
approving the construction of the
road from Prince Rupert to Terrace
and wishing Prince Rupert success
in its efforts along this line.. The
Stewart board has sent a resolution
of approval to Hon. Dr. W. H.
Sutherland, provincial minister of
public works.

[Anaconda Shows a

A regular quarterly dividend of
75c a share was declared by Anaconda Copper Mining Company,
payable November 22 to stock of

Anaconda's production at Butte
is averaging 17,000,000 pounds of
copper monthly, besides the custom
business.    The manufacturing departments are working at a record
rate, and all  the oopper produced,
together with zinc, is being utilized
by   these plants.    Earnings this

Northern Waters
Salmon have violated the customs
of their species by appearing this
winter in icy inland waters thus saving hundreds of Indians of the
lower Yukon from starvation. At
Mulato it is reported that the natives
are there catching salmon in the ice-
covered water with a baled hook.
Before the salmon were discovered
in the river the food supply of the
Indians had been curtailed by the
usual absence of small game.

MAIN OFFICE:-Anyox, B. C. ALICE  ARM   AND  ANYOX   HEKALD,   Saturday,   December  11   1926
Anyox Chapter of I. 0.
0. D. E. Successfully
Continued from Pagel
of heroic and patriotic self sacrifice.
E. To care for the widows
orphans and dependents of British
soldiers' and sailors during war, in
time of peace, or under sickness
accident or reverses of fortune.
F. To promote unity between
the Motherland, the sister colonies
and themselves; to promote loyalty
to King and country; to forward
every good work for the betterment
of their country and people; to
assist in the progress of art and
literature; to draw women's influence to the bettering of all things
connected with the Empire; and
instil into the youth of their
country patriotism in its fullest
An order with such uplifting
objects as those outlined above,
supported by its proud record for
public service as established especially since 1914, does not stand in
need of an advocate. It need not
be argued that in Anyox there is
room for its activities and influence
if for nothing further than the co
ordinate existing intention and endeavor of a patriotic nature.
Still more would it be out of
keeping with the spirit of the
Motto adopted by the "Collison of
Kincolith" Chapter, to anticipate
their usefulness with an outlay
of extravagant words.   Let it suf
fice to congratulate the executive
and members on the auspicious
launching of their Chapter upon
the troubled sea of publio service.
May the additional Chapter in the
Imperial Order of the Daughters of
the Empire prove also a new chapter in the history of the town.
Credit is due the Rev. and Mrs.
J. S. Brayfield for their persistent
conduct of an educative canvass
among prospective members, thus
rendering possible the happy culmination of Ihe Provincial Organizers visit. From Anyox Mrs. de
Pencier intended to proceed to
Ocean Falls, on a visit of inspection
