The Britannia Mining & Smelt-

have also secured an option on

uprises four claims,  and it is
bought that the big ore body of

Twenty-nine men are now em-

1921  they shipped ore from the

Some of the ore was the richest

xpected that much more similai
will be encountered when de

On Monday evening the Anyox
P. T- A. began the year with a
balance of $122.06, aooording to
the report presented by the Treasurer, Mrs, Patrick. This sum remained after substantial amounts
had been expended on worth while
assistance to the schools and ohildren.
For the work of the past year,
which included a variety of activities, a vote of thanks was accorded
the retiring president. Mrs. Gigot,
and the executive members. The
elections resulted in many unanimous requests that the previous
occupants of office should continue
to serve.
Those who are charged with executive positions are: Hon. Pres.,
Mr. Fordyce Clark; Pres., Mrs. G.
M. Lee; Vice-Pres., Miss Ormrod,
Recording Secy., Miss Richards;
Corresponding Secy., Mrs. Doelle;
Treas., Mrs. H. R. Patrick
Conveners of Committees on
Programme, Entertainment, Refreshments, Membership and
Sports were appointed. These include Mr. A. E. Vogee, Mrs. Cloke,
Mrs. Loudon, Mrs. Dunwoodie,
Mrs. Kirkwood, and Miss Heaney.
During tho discussion of plans
for the coming year, Mr. E. H.
Dunwoodie contributed a paper on
"Objectives in P. T. A. Work,"
which evoked considerable comment.   The suggestion was offered
New Wing Dam
Divert Creek
The work of constructing a new
wing dam above the town of Alice
Arm in order to divert the water
of Palls Creek into the Kitsault
river was commenced this week.
J. Graham, district road foreman
is in charge of operations.
A new dam will be built south
of Falls Creek. This will be connected to the existing dam. An
opening will then be made in the
old dam so that the water of Falls
Creek can be diverted into the
Kitsault. It is also planned to
raise the level of the old dam from
the bridge to the west bank of the
river an additional height of two
feet. This improvement, with the
second dam below, will undoubtedly remove any danger of the town
being flooded during high water
periods. The cost will be around
$7000.00 and about ten men will
be employed when work is in full
The flowing of Falls Creek
through the town was a nuisance.
No more will the summer air be
polluted with the rotting of hundreds of dog salmon, and soon will
be gone the days when the high
water periods kept everyone in a
state of suspense, not knowing
whether the next day would see
their house floating down the inlet

New Mineral   District
Being Opened
Ground Alice Arm Acquired
For Sport Purposes
Provision for a sports ground
for Alice Arm was made at the recent sale of lots. The Alice Arm
Skating Rink Syndicate and the
Tennis Club jointly purchased lot
8. It is a large plot of ground
adjacent to the old skating rink.
It will be considerably enlarged,
however, as Mr. J. W. Strombeek
has kindly donated a pieoe of
ground for sport purposes. It adjoins lot 8 and extends to the east
boundary of the wharf road.
The mining area of Alice Arm
district is steadily being enlarged.
The new district to receive attention is the big area in the vicinity
of Kinskuch lake. This area lies
on the Kitsault-Naas River divide
of the Upper Kitsault country.
The country has been fairly well
prospected this year and numerous
claims have been staked during the
summer. It is stated that the
ground is well mineralized, but the
full extent of the ore bodies can
not be determined until development work has been undertaken.
Kinskuch lake is drained by a
river bearing the same name and
which drains into the Naas river.
G. Davidson, representing Brit
ish capital spent some time this
year in the Kinskuch lake district
and was enthusiastic overthe possibilities of ore showings. He will
make a return trip this year for
another examination.

Baseball games and entertainments occupied their "whole time,
not a dull minute being allowed
Three games of baseball were
played, in which the local team
held their own, but the breaks
were against them. On several
occasions the game was lost due to
pure bad luck. They lost all three
games, the scores of which were,
6-5, 8-4, 13-12. Brilliant weather
prevailed during their visit.
On Thursday evening the visitors
attended a Lodge meeting, which
was followed by a social hour. A
dance was given in their honor on
Friday evening. About 200 persons were present and the afiair
was a great success.
On Saturday evening they attended a banquet at the Commodore Cafe.   Following the repast
there was a brief toast list.   Mr,
Gulick proposed the  toast  to  the
King to which Bud Sheen of Anyox
responded.      The   toast    to    the

The demand for copper has considerably increased during th&
present month. Record sales have
been made, and it is predicted that
should the present demand continue, the price will probably again
Following is a report on the
copper market taken from the Engineering and Mining Journal of
New York, of the issue of September 7th.
"All records were broken for copper buying this week, when domestic buyers entered the market for
a total of 102,000 tons, which far
surpasses the previous record of
56,000 tons sold in the week ending
Dec. 26, 1928, which, curiously
enough, was also a holiday week.
About 35,000 tons of this was sold
in one day, yesterday, since when
inquiry has tempered slightly, and
some sellers have withdrawn from
the market.
"Foreign business has also been
active, about 18,000 long tons having been booked at the Copper Exporters price of 18.30c. so far this
month, up to noon today.
"One leading seller, in view of the
heavy tonnage sold, withdrew from
the market on Friday afternoon,
and since then has established his
quotation at 18|c, Connecticut
basis, but business at that level has
been small. Other sellers, swamped with orders, have gradually
withdrawn also, though without
marking up their price. Today,
two large sellers continued to quote
18c, large orders being booked at
that level; they do not favor an increase. In fact, most sellers would
rather see 18c. maintained than to
have the conditions of last spring
duplicated. They admit, however,
that oontinued active buying is
likely to force up prices."
Large Number Opening
Badminton Games
The Anyox Badminton Club
commenced the season last week.
A large number were in attendance
at the opening games, and the
prospects of a successful season are
bright indeed. Badminton has
become very popular as an indoor
game during the past few years,
and judging from the number of
players participating this year its
popularity is increasing,

The new frontier of the empire
is in northern Canada, stated Hon.
Winston Churchill in a recent address in Vancouver. This includes
northern British Columbia. From
eastern Quebec to the Pacific
ocean the northen portion of the
Dominion is rapidly filling up.
What was considered a few years
ago to be a barren wilderness is
now found to be rich in minerals,
water powers and timber, also
agricultural land, especially in the
Peace River Country and northern
British Columbia. This province
was the first in the Dominion to
realize the importance of this vast
northland. The gold rushes of
the Omineca, Cassiar and Atlin
also the Yukon made known our
vast northern natural resources.
Northern British Columbia is a
treasure house of wealth awaiting
exploitation. It is being developed,
but the process in slow. The
weary waiting of the pioneers for
better transportation facilities is
sapping their enthusiasm. We
hear of new roads being built in
the southern part of the province
for the use of tourists—good roads
too, hard surfaced and smooth—
so that the cushion riders shall not
suffer any jolts. We also hear of
contemplated new roads for the
north, but they have not yet
materialized. The present government only came into power last
year. Since they assumed office
they have made plans for the construction of several trunk roads in
the north. It must be admitted
that it takes time to complete plans
before actual construction can be
undertaken—it took the previous
government twelve years—let us
hope things will now move a little
more swiftly. All the coast towns
should be connected with the interior by auto roads. We are entitled to have road connections.
The argument is raised that the
tourists spend money in the province. They spend a small fraction
of their income, whereas the people
of the north spend their whole income in the province, and moreover
are creating wealth by the development of our natural resources,
Power Corporation Buys
Dunwell Power
Latest reports from New York
state that the demand for copper
continues undiminished. During
one week this month copper sales
records were broken when 102,-
000 tons were sold. This is good
news for   British   Columbia.    It
Stewart News
Through a deal just made between the Power Corporation and
the Dunwell Mining Co., the town
of Stewart is assured of an abundance of electrical power for industrial and lighting purposes
throughout the coming winter.
The Power Corporation has purchased the power plant of the Dunwell Company and at the same time
contracted with the company to
supply them with power at a cost
that is just about one-half the cost
of power as the company was producing it. This is possible on account of the big developments going'!
on at American Creek, where a
storage dam will impound water
sufficient to supply all requirements
of this section. This will not be
completed, however, until next
year, and before that time there
would be a shortage of power in
Stewart except for the utilization
of the Dunwell plant.
It is a good deal for both parties.
The Power Corporation is placed in
a position to supply the trade, and
the mining company is assured of
all the power they will require at a
saving of fifty per cent.
The plant consists of a 300 horse
power Vickers-Petter Diesel engine,
coupled with a 450 K. V. A. generator and all the usual accessories to
such, a plant. The buildings housing the plant are leased by the
Dunwell Co. to the Power Corporation.
Meanwhile the latter are advertising for the purchase of cedar
poles, and the 21/, miles of transmission line from Stewart ■ to the
Dunwell plant will be completed
before the cold weather sets in.
A crew of men was sent up to the
Dunwell this week to prepare for
the arrival of a diamond drilling
crew who should be here tomorrow,
and who will inaugurate a diamond
drilling program to follow up the
results of the Radiore survey made
last fall.
Six thousand feet of diamond
drilling has been done on George
Copper by Consolidated, at a depth
of 1100 teet.

hasten the development of new
copper properties to a producing
stage. During the past two years
a lot has been said regarding the
developing of a number of new
copper properites to the producing
stage, but up to the present none
of the big properties have yet been
developed into producing mines.
Copper continues to hold its
place as the most favored metal.
Present prices are good and the
future is as bright as the present.
Now is the logical time to sell a
copper prospect. If prices and
terms are favorable the holder of a
copper prospect should not have a
great deal of trouble in disposing
of his holdings. Copper is the
metal that is in the greatest demand.
New properties in Canada, South
Africa and other countries are being developed as quickly as possible
to meet the demand. When these
new mines are producing to  full
means that the big copper pro
ducing companies  will   continue j capacity the price of copper may
working full force.    It  will  also take a drop.

This mine was originally developed
by a company composed of Vancouver and Penticton people and paid
handsome dividends before it attracted the Guggenheim interests
four years ago. They put up a
payment of $10,000 and proceeded
to take much valuable ore out of the
mine, and then relinquished the option. The Sally and the Bell mines
have been two of the best paying of
