Anyox Union   Church
Harvest Festival
and Concert
The Annual Harvest Festival
Service of the United Church was
held on Sunday when a large congregation was in attendance.
The Church had a festive appearance being decorated with a good
supply of fruit and vegetables,
which were contributed by the
United Churches of Hammond and
White Rock. The Girls' Choir sang
the chorus, "Love that Passeth
Knowledge" and the Misses Edna
and Beryl Owen rendered a duet
'Ring, Bells, Ring". The pastor
took as his subject "Bread".
At the concert on Monday night
the Sunday School presented a good
programme of music and recitations
The Girls' Choir saig a number of
choruses; Instrumental solos were
rendered by Misses Eleanor Wilson,
Nan Dunn and Irene Blackburn,
and instrumental duets were played
by Mr. Dresser and Glynn Owen,
Mr. Dresser and Audrey McMillan.
Recitations were given by Lillian
Barclay, Marie Thompson, Peggy
Arscott, Edna Brown, Audrey McMillan, Joe Jonason, Harold Hart,
Bobby Kirk, Leslie Murdoch and
Kenneth Lawn. Miss May Barclay
gave two musical recitations, "How
the Elephant got his Trunk" and
"Eskimo." The Misses Dresser
and Marjorie Cloke sang a trio.
After the programme Mr. S.
Colclough auctioned the fruit and
vegetables. Bidding was brisk and
the proceeds of the evening will
assure plenty of good things at
Christmas.
To Mr. Frank Dresser is due the
credit of preparing the musical programme. He also acted as accompanist during the evening.
Unusual   High  Tide
Experienced
An unusually high tide was experienced in Alice Arm on Wednesday. The water rose a foot over
the level shown in the tide book.
This was due to the heavy gale
blowing outside, which piled the
water up at the head of the inlet.
Several residences had their floors
washed, which was not appreciated
by the owners. The sidewalks in
the down-town section of the town
were under water, and rowboats
were busy around town picking up
floating go-devils sleighs, etc that
commenced to wander around
the town. It was one of the highest tides on record.
Vanguard Development
Very Satisfactory
Drifting on the ore vein at the
Vanguard is proceeding with all
possible speed. The vein has been
drifted on for a length of about
100 feet, and latest reports from
the property state that development
is very satisfactory, there being
lots of ore which is of a good
grade.
Leaves  for  South   After
Developing Property
Mr. and Mrs. E. C. Piokett left
Alice Arm on Monday for their
home in California, where they
plan to spend the winter. Ed. has
been busy during the summer developing the Tiger property which
adjoins the Toric on the north.
He has obtained excellent results
and is satisfied that he has a mine,
The Tiger possesses some excellent
surface showings of ore, aud these
have been located underground
aud the faulting of the ore body
has also been determined. Some
excellent high grade silver ore was
encountered underground during
the summer in addition to that
already looated in previous years.
Floods Do Slight Damage to
Dolly Varden Ry.
Due to the heavy rains the Kitsault river was running high during
the week. Although not, as high
as some former years, some slight
damage was done to the Dolly
Varden railway. A considerable
portion of the gravel bank at 2-mile
near T. W. Falconer's powder house
was washed out, undermining the
track. A bridge at 7-mile was also
put out of commission, the water
undermining a pier. It is understood that repairs will be effected
immediately.
Anyox Girls Receive Expert
Dancing Instruction
Coached by the Misses Hoadley and
Hamilton, of the Public Schools
Teaching Staff, about thirty girls
are being taught folk dancing and
fancy drills in the Gymnasium.
These classes are held on Monday
and Thursday afternoons between
the hours of 4.30 and 5.45. This
work constitutes about the most
ambitious effort yet attempted in
like lines locally. It is the intention
of the instructors to give one or
more exhibitions in the Gymnasium
before the winter is over.
W. A. Talbot, district engineer,
spent a few days in Alice Arm
during the week, examining the
Dolly Varden railway. He also
inspected trail work that had been
done this fall in the Upper Kitsault oountry.
175 Enrolled in Anyox
Night School
Classes
The Night School Classes conducted by the Granby Bay School
Board promise to be very successful
this year, about one hundred and
seventy-five students being enrolled
in the various classes at this date.
The classes now functioning, with
their instructors, are as follows:
Mechanical Drawing, Mr. Cutler;
Mineralogy and Metallurgy, Mr.
Wenerstrom; English for Foreigners, classes at Beach and Mine,
Mr. Thorsteinsson; Book-keeping
and Stenography, Mr. Larson;
Spanish, Mr. Real; Mathematics
and Science, Mr. Campbell; Advanced French, Mr. Clarke; Public
School Arithmetic, Mr. Hartley;
Electricity, Mr. Lawn; Sewing,
Mrs Peterson. The organizing of
these night school classes this year
was in the hands of Mr. Hartley,
who will exercise a general supervision over them while they continue.  -
Leisure Hours in Anyox
Provided For
Anyox Gymnasium Kept
Busy
Since the beginning of October,
when the Gymnasium was opened
for the winter months, there have
been few minutes when its floor has
not been in use. On Monday and
Thursday evenings, the Badminton
Club has the use of it from 7 until
10.30; on Tuesday and Friday evenings the Beach Athletic Club utilizes
it for the same length of time,
while the basketball enthusiasts have
their turn on Wednesday, Saturday
and Sunday nights. During the
day, badminton is played consistently between the hours of 10 a.m.
and 3.30 p.m., at which time, on
Mondays and Thursdays, the Public
School boys and girls have Gym.
privileges and on Tuesdays and
Fridays the same houis are granted
the High School pupils. Saturday
is divided equally between the
schools, with the exception of one
hour between eleven and twelve
when the Girl Guides are in control.
Wednesday and Sunday afternoons
are open periods, when time is
alloted to different activities. From
present indications, it would appear
as though the Gymnasium would be
the popular centre of Anyox folk for
the next few months to come.
The Mine Club members are advertising a unique evening for Monday, October 22nd., when they will
be at home in their hall on the hill,
the occasion being nothing less
than a "Straw Hat Dance".
Anyox is a mining camp isolated from the busy industrial
centres, but it has many advantages not easily procured in larger
communities. There is no need
for leisure hours to be a bore during
the ooming winter for anyone who
has a spark of ambition for advancement. For those who wish
to train their bodies in muscular
exercises, the gymnasium will
welcome them. For those who
wish to advance in study the
Night School Classes are open to
receive them. First Aid classes
will also be conducted, and last
but not least the Community
League Reading Room is available
to everyone who desire to pursue
their study in quiet, and also the
excellent Lending Library in connection. In addition to the above
attractions there are several fraternal orders, who offer advancement for those who take au interest in the welfare of their brothers
Entertainments such as danoes,
concerts, boxing and wrestling will
be provided continuously throughout the ooming winter. Taking
an unbiased view of the situation
there are a lot of worse places to
spend the winter than Anyox.
Arrangements Made for
Alice Arm Xmas Tree
A meeting of the Alice Arm ladies
was held at the School House on
Wednesday afternoon, for the purpose of discussing the Children's
Christmas Tree and Entertainment
It was the general opinion that
as there are not as many children in
town this winter to hold it in the
School.
Mrs. J. Trinder and Mrs. O.
Evindson were appointed Finance
Committee, and Mr. Greenaway
will be in charge of entertainment
and decorating.
Parents of children will be asked
to contribute towards expenses, and
collection boxes will be placed in
the Post Office, etc. for those who
wish to contribute towards giving
the children a happy time.
Much  Business  Dealt
With at A. C. L
Meeting
At its last meeting held in Recreation Hall, with Chairman
Cutler, Second Vice-President
Grimason, aud Messrs. Selwood
and Peters present, the Community League Counoil discussed
many things of interest to the
community.
Alterations to the ground floor of
Reoreation Hall were discussed,
and the expenditure of certain
monies recommended in order to
make an attractive refreshment
room there, estimates of cost having been tendered.
It was also decided to get prices
on deoorating and plumbing as
well as the cost of equipment for
operating.
The purchase of rubber matting
for the aisles of the picture show
hall was also authorized. A quantity of bulbs were needed for the
garden in front of the library and
it waB decided to get a supply.
The Chairman of Recreatiou
suggested that an old time smoker
should be conducted in the Gymnasium by the League, and December 9th. was the date agreed
upon. Mr. Peters also reported
progress in connection with the
formation of basketball leagues.
The Chairman of Forum Committee suggested oertain things in
connection with the main reading
room, all being agreed to.
In connection with repairs to
the radiator system in the Gymnasium, it was decided to move the
whole se6tion on the gallery side,
placing the piping against the back
wall. Certain equipment for the
gymnasium was also discussed and
its purohase authorized.
Director  of  Keystone  Co.
Inspects Mine
Dr. Geo. T. Williams, a director
of the Keystone Mining Co. accompanied by M. H. VanNuys, arrived
in Alice Arm on Monday, from
Seattle. They made an examination of the Keystone Mine and were
well pleased with the progress of
development work. They left on
Wednesday for Seattle.
First Aid Classes Are
Now Operating
The Anyox First Aid Classes
which are conducted annually
began their 1927 activities during
the week, opening at the Mine on
Thursday, and at the Beach on
Friday. The classes at the Mine
are being held in Dr. Lang's office,
and at the Beach in the basement
of the United Church, which has
been donated by the Church management for the purpose. Both
premises are comfortably heated,
and bandages and the books of the
St. John Ambulance Association are
free to all students takingthe course
of instructions from Drs. Trefry and
Lang, the latter handling the Mine
Class, while the former is in charge

The interest that is being taken
in the Stewart district by the big
mining companies it a source ol
great satisfaction to the whole
northern mining district of British
Columbia. It takes considerable
time to prepare a camp for the big
fellows to become interested. First
come the prospector who makes a
few holes in the ground. Then
come the small companies, who
drive tunnels, sometimes to advantage and sometimes not. They,
however, get underground and
that is what the geologists of the
big mining companies require.
When enough underground work
has been done over a sufficient
area so that they can study the
geology, and estimate the size of
ore bodies, if satisfactory they wili
come in. It is now very seldom
that a big mining company will
commence the development of a
property in an undeveloped district. The small companies are
necessary to drive the first tunnels.
Enough underground work has undoubtedly been done at Stewart
to interest the big companies.
Alice Arm is approaching the
same stage, and it is only a matter
of how fast development is done
by the small companies before the
bie ones come in.
The day is past when excessive labor turn-overs are viewed
with equanimity. Once the employee who left was apt to be
treated with indifference, especially
if there were- many "rustlers" at
the gate. Hiring and firing were
left largely to the foreman, and if
his ways of handling men were
faulty it was likely to escape the
attention of those above him. But
leaner ores and an increasing scarcity of new deposits have long
since brought about a new religion
in the mining industry. Labor
problems receive attention as well
as those of a technical kind, for
they, too, affect the profits. A high
labor turnover has its exact appraisal of the loss be impossible
to make,
First in the course of investigating an excessive turn-over is to find
out why the employees quit. The
method of doing this is simple—ask
them.   The exit interviews, as it
Low Copper Price Due
Improved Methods
The superior utility of copperfor
many purposes for which it was
scarcely used at all a few years ago
lias been demonstrated by research
and experiment, notable examples
of these new uses being washing
machines and .range boilers, says
the "Commerce Yearbook" for 1926
issued by the Department of Commerce. "The new demand for
radio instruments and electric refrigeration continues to be a factor
of increasing magnitude.
It is stated that the United
States leads the world in the mining of copper, producing from
domestio ore last year 54% of the
world's total.
In stating that in 1925 the price
of copper continued below the pre
war level, the Yearbook says:
"This is a result of improved
methods, especially those for ex
tracting the metal froinlow-content
ores."
The United States is said to have
"the greatest copper smelting and
refining industry in the world."
has been called, is of much import
ance. Conducted by a third per
son it serves as a check upon the
shift boss or foreman or whoever
has been the immediate superior
of the employee who is throwing
up his job. It may show that the
man has not been assigned to the
work for which he is best fitted.
Tact and courtesy in most cases
will bring out the real reason for
the man's dissatisfaction. Also,
even though he persists in his intention to go elsewhere, he will
have kinder feelings toward his late
employer.
It does not pay to train employees for some one else. A company's efforts with its men amount
to just that whenever the latter
quit after working for a few weeks
or months, or even a year. The
large mining companies have long
since realized this and have given
careful attention to their problems
involving industrial relations. The
small operator with only a few
men to handle is in such intimate
contact with them that the matter
for him has slight importance. But
in between these two groups of the
very large and the very small is a
third group of operations that are
too small to be highly organized
but at the same time too large for
the superintendent to be in intimate
contact with all his men. The
companies in this group will find it
profitable and possible in many
instances to improve their relations
with their employees and to seek
the causes if their turnover be
unduly high.—Engineering and

The Mineral Province of Western Canada
Has produced Minerals as follows: Placer Gold, $78,018,548; Lode Gold, $126,972,318; Silver, $80,-
787,003; Lead, $106,976,442; Copper, $209,967,068; Zinc, $50,512,557; Coal and Coke, $284,699,133;
Structural Materials and Miscellaneous Minerals, $50,175,407, making its mineral production to the end
of 1926, show an
Aggregate Value of $988,108,470
The substantial progress of the Mining industry of this Province is strikingly exhibited in the following
figures, which show the value of production for successive five-year periods: For all years to 1895, inclusive $94,547,241; forfive years, 1896-1900, $57,607,967; for.five years, 1901-1905, $96,507,968; for five yearn-

for five years, 1921-1925, $214,726,650; for 1926, $67,188,842.
Production Last Ten Years, $429,547,755
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 prospeoting.
The Mining Laws of this Province are more liberal and the fees lower than those of any other Provinoe
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 done
are desoribed in some one of the Annual Keports of the Minister of Mines. Those considering
mining investments should refer to such reports. They are available without oharge on application
to the Department of Mines, Victoria, B. C. Keports covering each of the six mineral Survey
Districts are published separately, and are available on application. Reports of the Geologioal
Survey of Canada, Winch Building, Vancouver, are recommended as valuable sources of information.

Buck Deer Credited the
Discovery of Britannia
Mine
The interesting story of the
Britannia mine, north of Vancouver
was told in a booklet distributed
during the recent visit of the British Empire Congress to the property. It inoluded the legend of the
buck deer which bears the same
relation to the Britannia that the
Burro does to the ( Bunker Hill.
Iu 1888, it was recorded, one
Dr. Forbes shot a deer ou an eminence overlooking Howe Sound,
and when he dragged it down the
hill the horns soraped moss from
a rock, exposing a green stain-
copper.
Teu years later, Oliver Furry,
grubstaked by W. A. Clark of
Vanoouver, looated five olaims, and
it is from this ground that a large
portion of the mine produotion has
since oome. Then F. Turner, of
Vancouver, and Boscowitz & Sons
of Viotoria, heoame interested, and
in 1900 Joseph Adams and H. C.
Walters organized the Britannia
Copper Syndioate.
About 1903, Grant B. Schley, of
New York, became connected with
the enterprise, aud to him belongs
the credit of pulling it through the
lean period of 20 years ago. A
subsidiary company owned the
smelter at Crofton, Vanoouver
Island, which was closed down iu
1913 owing to laok of custom ore.
Investment at Britannia Beaoh
is over $10,000,000. Theoompany's
holdings comprise 25,000 aores, extending from Howe Sound eastward to Indian river, 10 miles.
The average number of dry tons
milled per day is 3800, with a
copper recovery of 91.0 per cent,
and with a milling cost of 43 cents
Over 1000 men are on the payroll
which totals $1,750,000 yearly.
Disbursements for supplies are
$1,000,000 annually.
Alaska Ships 80 Tons Wool
The Aleutian Live Stock Company, operating in the Aleutian
Islands, South-western Alaska,
shipped out eighty tons of wool
on the last trip of the steamer
Victoria. The wool is of a very
fine quality. It was shipped to
Portland Oregon, where it will be
sold, probably at a higher price
than the local product brings.

Stolen Eggs and the Silk Trade
Above—Reeling silk In the Flowery Kingdom.     Below—An Empress liner I
■ Canadian Pacific silk special passing through the Rockies.
sUk at Yokohama aal
Production of silk dates far Into antiquity, and for
ages the manner of Its production was kept secret
Up to the sixth century A.D. all raw silk was Imported
Into Europe from China, but the Byzantine Emperor
Justinian Induced two monks to travel into China to
procure silk 'worm eggs and though the export of them
'•was punishable by death, these monks succeeded ln
Ibringing back a quantity concealed ln the hollows of
their pilgrims staves.
From Byzantium, silk cultivation spread into Greece
and Syria, thence into 'Spain, and thence successively
'into Sicily, Naples, Northern Italy and France, being
Established in Italy ln the sixteenth century.
Various determined attempts have been made, principally between tbe years 1622 and 1839 to establish
the silk industry in America, resulting at one time in a
not Inconsiderable production, but the excessive cost
of the labor involved in the rearing of tho worms and
in the reeling of the raw silk from the cocoons as compared with the trifling cost of such labor In Europe
and Asia, has rendered it Impossible to produce raw
silk at commercial prices on this continent.
Most of the silk imported to America cornea from
Japan, Italy and China where, also, the humidity of tho
atmosphere contributes no little to the success of the
industry in those countries. The greatest importation
Is from the Flowery Kingdom, and this mostly ln the
raw-silk form as it is reeled from the cocoons.
Silk is valuable.' In one consignment of a few hundred bales, hundreds of thousands ot dollars aro tied
up, and for this reason, that no time may be lost in
making up the raw material and placing tho finished
goods upon the market, the product of the little silk
