Granby Co. Driving
Tunnel on Bonanza
In a recent interview with the
Herald, Mr. J. B. Haffner, general
superintendent for the Granby Co.
stated that the company had decided to drive at least 200 feet of
tunnel on the Bonanza property,
and it is probable that 300 feet
will be driven. Messrs. J. Lade
and Vince Lade, of Stewart, have
secured the contract, and work
has already commenced. No diamond drilling will be done on the
Bonanza this year. The Bonanza
lies about li miles south-west of
the smelter, and the ore oarries
copper values.   .
In speaking of further work at
Quartz Point across the bay, Mr.
Haffner said that owing to the low
price of copper, no work would be
done on the property this year.
The company are obtaining 125
tons .of silicous ore per day from
their Outsider property, and also
40 tons from C. Clay's property at
the north end of Larcom Island.
Now that the concentrates from
the mill are being treated at the
smelter, it is not necessary to use
as much quartz as formerly.
The concentrator is now giving
good results, and is practically
running to capacity, treating 2000
tons of ore per clay, and producing
concentrates of a high percentage.
Mining Boom Imminent
At Alice Arm
All signs are beginning to point
to a renewal of mining activity in
the Alice Arm district. Various
properties are being investigated
by influential mining men, and it
is understood that an extensive
investigation of several of the most
promising properties will be undertaken during the next few weeks.
Silver has now reached a price
where the mining of silver ore can
be undertaken profitably. The
Dolly Varden railway has been
repaired to Camp 8 so that speeders and hand cars can be taken
over it. The mining industry of
Alice Arm has been a little quiet
since the closing down of the
Dolly- Varden mine, but the next
few months should witness a big
revival of our premier industry.

Fourth Annual Flag Day field
on Wednesday
On Wednesday, August.,6, the
Anyox Elks held their fpurth
Annual Flag and Children's day.
Sharp at 1.30 in the afternoon the
children were arranged in double
file in front of the Elks Hall for
the inarch to the ball grounds,
each was given a paper hat, a flag
cane and a balloon, then the start
was made with the Elks ltube
Jazz Band at the head of the
procession. On arrival at the
grounds the children were all seated in the Bleachers and an address
on the Flag was given by Bro.
Bev. J. B. Gibson. The real fun
then started, thirty race events
were run off and all were keenly
contested. Ice cream, lemonade,
peanuts, fancy biscuits and candy
galore were given to the youngsters during the entire afternoon.
Several selections were rendered
by the Rube Band which consisted
of; Drum-Major Bro. V. Cruik-
shank, Bandsmen, Bros. S. Armstrong, H. Kirk, E. Craggs, F.
Morrow, P. Wishart, H. St. Clair,
J. Goertson, C. Gray, J. B. Thompson' and A. S. Nickerson. The
antics of Bro. Cruikshauk kept
the entire crowd in convulsions of
laughter, his make-up alone was
cause enough for many laughs.
Fred Brown and Ed Sulivan
acted as starters for the races,
assisted by Mrs. T. W. Falooner,
Miss Chrisholm, Mr. Pearce and
Bev. Mr. Gibson, H. Fowler and
T. Almas, dispensed ice cream and
lemonade. F. M. Kelley recorded
the winners of the different events
and Cy Greenwell acted as announcer. The Anyox Lodge wish
to take this opportunity to thank
all those who helped to make the
day the success it was.
At 5.30 the band played God
Save the King and brought to a
close a most enjoyable and successful afternoon's entertainment.
In the evening a very successful
dance was held in the Elk's Hall,
a large crowd attended, and tripped the light fantastic until two
in the morning. The Rube Band
was again in evidence and assisted
the orchestra on several of the
numbers. The orchestra consisted
of, J. Austin, piano; S. Armstrong,
and G. Leslie, violins; P. Steven-
ard, cornet; S. Steele, trombone;
and E. Waterman, drums. A
great deal of credit is due the
committee for the success of the
dance.

Anyox Baseball and
Football Games
In the fastest and most hard
fought football game seen on the
local lot this year the Beach eleven
defeated the Miners three goals to
two. The game eliminates the
Mine from the play for the Anyox
Cup. The Beach defense was exceptionally good, many brilliant
saves were made by the goal-
tender. Ellison, Taylor and Barney Fitzpatrick scored for the
winners; Dave Scott and Tommy
Gilmore for the losers. The Cup
filial will be between the Beach
and the Smelter elevens.
The Elks defeated the Gas Eaters on
and scored on Kirk's slow roller down
Thursday evening last week in a closely contested game by the score of
three runs to two. The Brother Bills
got the jump on Benny Fitzpatrick in
the first inning, when they bunched
hits coupled with a wild pitch which
netted them two runs. The Gas Eat-
trs made their lone tally in the third.
Benny was derricked in the fourth
and was replaced by Wells, who held
the opposition to one hit from then
on. P. Fitzpatrick turned in a very
creditable performance, although he
was in trouble, Umpires were: W.
Olsen and T. Halverson.
One lone hit was the best the Elks
could do off Cecil Ferguson's slants on
Saturday evening, and the Mine won
by one to nothing. The Muckers
gathered seven Bingles off Red Fitz-
patrick's delivery. The Miners scored
their one run in the first inning, when

The price of copper has again
advanced to a trifle over the 13
cent mark. While this is an im-
pi-ovemenl over the past few weeks
it is evident that an advance of
several more cents is necessary in
order that copper can be profitably
mined and treated in this district.
The price of silver has increased to
over 68 cents per ounce. If this
price is maintained for a lengthy
period, it will undoubtedly be of
immeasurable benefit to this district, If copper increases a few
more cents per pound, the Granby
Co. will be in a better position to
develop new properties,"!** in other
words they will be able to take a
chance. The present price of
silver should make it possible to
profitably mine the silver deposits
of Alice Arm. Capital is all we
need, and ev'ory inducement should
be given it to invest in the district.
More Ore on
Dunwell Property
Portland Canal News
No. 3 tunnel of the Dunwell is
now in a distance of 300 feet with
good progress being made. One;
of the sensations of the week has
been the cutting in this tunnel of a
2_-foot high-grade vein showing
native silver, argentite and free
gold. Two specimens of this
precious metal were picked up off
the dump at the portal during the
week by a News representative,
one of which is now on display in
the News ore exhibit. While this
vein was known to exist it was
not expeoted to be of as high a
grade as has proven to be the case.
An interesting feature of this new
high-grade vein is that it is entirely different from that cut in No.
3 tunnel, being of a very talcose
texture; in addition, it appears to
parallel the upper vein.

The only two factors of encouraging import as far as the red metal is concerned are near balancing
of production and consumption,
with no marked increase in surplus
stocks, and possibility of early improvement in European demand
through reaching of a definite
settlement of the reparations
tangle by adoption of the Dawes
report. Nations chiefly concerned
are toying with the plan, realizing
as a matter of self interest that a
spirit of give-and-take .must be
adopted if they are going to get
anywhere on the road to rehabilitation.—Mining Truth.
Since the discovery of gold at
Colonia in 1848, the United States
has produced $4,218,633,000 in
gold, of which California contributed $l,763,843,2ti9, or 41.33 per
cent, of the nation's gold.

Brown hit to left field for three bases,
the first base line. From then on the
game was a ding dong affair, with
neither team ever in danger. Umpires
W. Olsen and B. Stewart.
The Smelter managed to turn in a
win against the Miners on Monday
evening, the score being five to three,
the Mine got away to a good start in
the first inning, when they notched
two counters. They added another in
the third and looked as though they
had the game tucked away. The
Smelter, however, showed a lot of
fight, and scored one in their half of
the third, and staged a rally in the
sixth, when they chased four runs
over the rubber. Jimmy Ferguson
made his first appearance on the
mound for the losers and had the
opposition eating out of his hand up
to the disastrous sixth frame. Benny
Fitzpatrick turned in a nice game for
the winners, although his support was
a bit wobbly at times. Umpires: W.
Olsen and C. Greenwell.
