Granby Co. May Close Down
Anyox Plant In Few Months
Prolonged Low Copper Prices Increase Difficulties of
Operating and Drastic Action May Be Necessary
From out of the air on Saturday
night last, came the startling news
to radio fans of Anyox and district
that there was a possibility of the
big oopper mines and ore reduction
plant, of the Granby Consolidated
Mining Smelting & Power Co. at
Anyox closing down within the
next few months.
The announcement came as a
distinct surprise to everyone, as
since resumption of operations following the big labor strike, in
February of last year, no hint had
been received of a oontemplated
shut-down.
Many doubted the authenticity
of the statements made, but all
doubts on that score were
removed when ' daily papers
arrived from the south and also
when Mr. C- Bocking, President of
the Granby Company, arrived from
Vancouver on Wednesday night
and verified press statements.
In an interview with th? Herald
early on Thursday morning Mr.
Bocking stated that it was possible
that the whole Anyox plant would
be closed within six months. He
said however, no definite statement
can be made until December 12th.
On that date an extraordinary
meeting of the shareholders will be
held at New York and the future
policy of the company will then be
decided. This plant, he said is the
property of the shareholders and it
is for them to decide, as to what,
action shall be taken.
Mr. Booking did not anticipate
an immediate close-down following
the meeting, and expressed the
opinion that it would take severa
months before all loose ore was
cleaned up at the mine. When this
had been completed, the extent of
future operations would depend
upon the price of copper.
Following is a copy of the letter
mailed to the shareholders
of the Granby Company advising
them ofthe present difficult position
and which explains many of the
problems confronting the company:
"Enclosed is notice calling a
meeting of shareholders of your
Company to consider the advisability of closing down the Anyox properties or empowering the Board
of Directors to do so, if and when
it deems it advisable.
"In the Annual Report for the
year 1933 it was stated that, unless
new ore was found, the recoverable
ores of the Anyox mines would be
exhausted iu abbut two years.
Since the first of the year some ore
has been added to the reserves, but
from present indications the probable ore reserves at the end of 1934
will be somewhat less than they
were at the beginning of the year.
"Your Company is now confronted with a different situation than
existed at the beginning of the year
in that the price of copper in the
foreign market is now considerably
lower and the cost of production
higher,
"The tariff of 4 cents per pound
imposed by the United States Government on imported copper shuts
your Company out of the United
States market and all of its production must be sold in the foreign
market. The net price of foreign
copper at the present time is approximately 6j cents per pound,
which is less than cost. The Company has some copper in the United
States which was exported to this
country prior to the imposition of
the present 4 cents tariff. This
copper may be sold here later but.
under the Code sales must be pro
rated with domestic producers and,
therefore, the amount which may
be sold here for the time being is
negligible.
"While your Company has sold
some copper it still has on band a
substantial amount of blister and
refined copper which has not been
sold because of the low prices pre
vailing for some time. Some of
this copper has been pledged as col
lateral for loans aggregating $1,
275,000. In order to continue operations it will be necessary to make
further borrowings, secured by additional copper, or to sell copper
abroad at current prices, even
though they be at less than cost.
"On account of the short life of
the mines, Anyox has been operated
substantially at capacity, the idea
being to get all of the copper above
ground as roou as practicable at the
lowest, oost.
"In view of the small amount of
ore reserves, the expense of maintenance, repairs and preparation for
resumption of operations, it is believed that a temporary shut-down
at Anyox would not be warranted
and that if the mines bo closed, the
shut-down must be permanent and
for all time. If it is determined to
close, it will take several months to
complete the operation.
"As you have been advised in
the Annual Reports, the Allenby
properties of your Company have
been closed since 1930, but taxes
mid insurance have been paid and
watchman service maintained.
This expense amounts to approximately $30,000 a year. Just when
Allenby can be re-opened is depen
dent wholly upon the price of
foreign copper.
"If you cannot be personally
present at the shareholders' meeting, you are requested to sign the
enclosed proxy before a witness and
return it to the Secretary of the
Company without delay."

The Armistice  Smoker
Maintains Old Time
Traditions
Music, song and story held complete sway at the Armistice Smoker, which was held in the Elks'
Dugcut on Saturday, November
10th. when a large number of Canadian Legion and other ex-service
men, gathered for their annual
celebration ol the signing of the
Armistice. Mr. J. A. D. Stewart,
ocoupied the chair and very ably
controlled a lengthy program.
Two vocal numbers were given
by J, Dale and R. Brown sang
"Dear Old Pal of Mine." C. P.
Ashmore's song "Oh. Oh, Hear the
Wild Wind Blow" was splendidly
given, as an encore he sang "I know
a Lovely Garden." Ed. Blundell
never fails at Armistice with his
song: "Rose of No Man's Land.
As an encore he sang, "Little Man
you've had a busy day." Later he
sang "Little Grass Shack." Songs
were also given by J. J. H. Varnes
and M. Flye. Two violin solos by
W. Thompson were much appreciated, also an instrumental trio by
J. Buntain, J. Heywood and A-
White. Musical selections, also the
accompaniments for community
singing, were given by the Legion
Orchestra under the direction of
J. J. H. Varnes.
Boy Scouts Guests At
Special Supper
Scoutmaster and Mrs. R. Gale
were host and hostess recently at a
suppet for the Anyox Troop of Boy
Scouts. The chief item on the
menu was mountain goat, which
was shot by Scoutmaster Gale a
few days before. After a hearty
supper community singing was indulged in, followed by informal
talks by several of the Scouts.
Troop Leader Tom Kirkwood, who
had accompanied Scoutmaster Gale
on the hunting trip, gave a talk on
"Assisting to get the Scoutmaster's
goat!!"
During the evening Rover Mate
Ted Kergin, who is also Acting
Assisting Scoutmaster, was presented with the Rover's Instructor's
Badge by Scoutmaster Gale. Ted
Kergin is keenly interested in Scout
work and is well liked by all members of the Anyox Troop.
It will be interesting to know that
the Anyox Boy Scouts have been
formed into tour Patrols, one of
these being the Sea Scouts. Only
those scouts who have passed their
first class swimming test can be a
member of the latter patrol.
The World's Biggest Blast
Will Soon Be Fired in Anyox
Months of Work Necessary to Prepare for Blast Using
Nearly 100 Tons of Powder
The biggest blast to be fired in
connection with underground mining in the world, will be put off
during the latter days of'this month
or very early in December) at the
Hidden Creek mine at Anyox by
the Granby Company.
At the present time the work of
loading the thousands of holes
drilled, is being rapidly pushed
ahead and as soon as they are loaded the connecting wires are laid,
which will total several miles,
Around 100 tons of powder will
be used to lift the enormous mass
of ore that is to be broken.
The ore to be blasted is composed
principally of hnge supporting pillars and will complete mining operations in that particular section of
the mine.
During the past few months a
new entrance to the 385 level—
which is the main haulage tunnel—
has been driven. This new entrance has been connected up in
various parts underground with old
tunnels, thus forming a new haulage tunnel independent of the old
oue. This new entrance was driven
in case the present haulage tunnel
was damaged by the blast, in which
case a complete stoppage of ore
would result and precautionary
measures were therefore taken.
On the day the big blast, is
fired the mine hill will be evacuated by the population, as a precautionary measure. It is not
thought that any of the mine buildings will be seriously damaged by
the blast, but some may be effected
in the immediate vicinity.
The amount of ore that will be
broken cannot be estimated until
all holes are loaded aud final preparations are completed. There will
however, no doubt be enough
broken ore to last for several
months at the present mill capacity
of 5000 tons per day.
The shot will be fired by electric
current from the power system,
This is one of a series of big
blasts that has been undertaken
by the Granby Company in recent
years. The last real big one was
fired on August 27th. last year,
when 53 tons of powder were used
and about 400,000 tons of ore
broken. At that time it was the
second biggest underground blast
in the world, and the present one
will far exceed it, and hold the
world's record.
The second biggest underground
blast in the world was put off in
the mine of the Climax Molybdenum Company, Colorado last year
when 55 tons of powder were used.
Holy Communion will be celebrated at Christ Church tomorrow,
Sunday, at 10 a.m.
Armistice Dance Draws
Large Attendance
Just as successful as any previous
similar event was the annual Armistice Dance, held under the auspices of the Anyox Branch Canadian
Legion in the Gymnasium on Friday, November 9th. There was a
large attendance and throughout
the whole evening an air of jollity
and good humour prevailed. Bun
tain's Orchestra pleased the orowd
with the quality of the music ren
dered and during the supper inter
val the Legion Orchestra played a
number of the old war-time melodies whioh delighted everyone,
During the evening the drawing
took place for the cedar chest which
was being disposed of by the
I. O. D. E. for purposes of charity,
the lucky winner proving to be
Miss G. MoDonald, of the staff of
the Granby Bay Schools,
The committee in charge were
complimented on all sides for their
successful efforts in providing a
most enjoyable evening.
Mrs. C. Clay left on Wednesday
for Vancouver.
Golf Club Card Party And
Dance Shortly
If the efforts of the Golf Club
Committee mean anything, there
can be no doubt as to the success
ofthe Golf Club Card Party and
Dance which will be held in the
Elks' Hall on Friday, November
23rd. Whist as well as bridge will
be played, and suitable prizes will
be awarded to the winners. In the
early part of the evening, so as not
to take up time from the dancing,
the trophies won during the season
by both ladies and men will be presented, Dancing will commence at
11 o'clock, the music being supplied
by Buntain's Orchestra. Previous
similar events have been most enjoyable, and this one will be even
more so. Cards will commence at
8 o'clock sharp. There should be
a large attendance of golfers, their
friends, and the general public at
this enjoyable event.
BIRTH  AT ANYOX

An Article Dealing With
Contracts By Mr.
C. M. Stewart
In dealing with the subject of
contracts, we are dealing with by
far the most important branch of
the law. There is very little in the
way of business carried on, that is
not based on a contract, either expressed by word of mouth or in
writing, or if the agreement is not
so expressed wc find an implied one
underlying the transaction. Most
of the work that goes through our
law courts, arises out of contracts
where a misunderstanding has
arisen.
Law primarily breaks itself up to
cover three groups of problems.
The first is criminal law . . . dealing with acts that are contrary to
the general good of the public.
Then we have cases where some
one has a claim that does not arise
from a contract, but from a wrong
suffered, such as being injured by a
passing motor car . . . accidents.
The big majority of cases however, are based on contracts. It is
necessary therefore, in order to get
a grip,of the fundamentals of contracts to go a little more into detail
and go right down to the origin of
the different types of contract that
we meet. The essentials necessary
for any contract under British law
are five in number and summarised,
are as follows:
1. Offer and Acceptance: There
must be a distinct and clear communication by the parties to one
another of their intention. It is
surprising how many cases wc
find where there never was an acceptance of the offer made and
consequently no legal contract.
2. Form or Consideration: Certain contracts require to be made in
certain forms but the big majority
of contracts do not depend on their
form for validity but on the law that
there must be some consideration
moving to the person who is binding himself to do some certain act.
I might make a promise to do something for you and even put it in
writing but it has no value unless
there is some consideration support
ing it.
3. The next essential to a good
contract is known as Capacity of
Parties. Here we find the cases of
agreements made by people under
twenty-one years, people of unsound mind and people under the
influence of liquor.
4. Genuineness of Consent: Was
the offer or the acceptance genuine
or was either of them made through
misrepresentation or fraud?
5. Legality of Object: A contract,
no matter how well drawn, will
never be passed on by the courts
where it has as an objective something that is not legal. The simplest case of this type is the debt incurred by gambling, which is supposed to be against the law. One
has to come into court with clean
hands.
The above are all essential to a
good contract and in future articles
we will deal with them in detail.

Ore and Concentrates Being
Shipped From Stewart
The Stewart News
With two trucks working two
shifts, the Crawford Transfer this
week completed the loading of 400
tons of siliceous ore from Dunwell
on to a scow, for shipment to the
smeller at Anyox, on the arrival of
the'lirst ore boat.
Shipments of concentrates and
siliceous ore from Dunwell, during
the month of October contained
some 216 ounces of gold and 13,100
ounces of silver. This, however
must not be considered the full
months' production, there being no
ore boat after the 24th. of the month
it is for the period up to that datei
only.
Government Road Work In
The Stewart District
The Stewart News
Hugh J. McDonald, road superintendent, reports that the roof over
the Surprise Creek bridge has been
completed, thus protecting this
structure from the weight of snow
during the winter. That the crew
employed on repairs to the Bear
River road, has completed its work
and ' ,l with some money over, he
now has a crew of some 18 men
employed, extending the Bear River
highway, which is already some two
miles beyond American Creek.
In addition to this work Mr. McDonald states that his department
has built a new short road into the
foot of the Ber AH hill, thus facilitating anticipated ore shipments
from that property.

Memory  of  Departed
Ex-Service Men
Honored
On the fifteenth anniversary of
Armistice the annual parade to the
Anyox Cemetery for the purpose of
honoring the memory of ex-service
men who have since passed on, was
held. The number of citizens who
turned out was not nearly so large
as the occasion would justify.
Taking part in the parade were
members of the Canadian Legion
and other ex-service men, members
of the I. O. D. E., hoy scout group
and the children and teachers of
the Anglican and United Church
(Sunday Schools. At 11 o'clock the
"Last Post" was sounded by E.
Ross Oatman', followed by the
"Reveille" two minutes later. The
soldiers' graves were decorated
with poppy wreaths by the ladies of
the 1. O. D. E. Thus once more
an important annual obligation was
fulfilled.

BUILDING MATERIAL

The underlying basic trouble is
not dissimilar in the United States
and Great Britain. We must be
turning our minds to the more fundamentally important long-run problems of international co-operation.
Those problems, stated briefly, are:
Firstly, elimination of fear, which
is at the root of economic self-sufficiency; secondly, the creation of
new methods of conducting international trade with a standard of
international values, and thirdly,
correlation between the intrinsic
producing and exchanging powers
of our respective countries. The
world today is as small, in an economic sense as the thirteen States were
in the time of Benjamin Franklin.

ever true now that we must hang

The Minerals of British Columbia
This Province offers excellent opportunities for useful and
profitable investment.    British Columbia has produced
OVER $1,352,000,000 WORTH OF MINERALS.
The gross value of mineral production for the six months
ended June 30th. 1934, exclusive of gold premium, is
estimated at $18,667,691.00, an increase of 50.5 per cent,
over the estimated value of the production in the corresponding six-month period of 1933.
GOLD PRODUCTION: Gold production showed a
decided increase; a total return in Canadian funds
to the gold producers of British Columbia during the
first six months for 1934 being approximately
$5,028,124.00, an increase of 81.3 per cent, over
the return in Canadian funds received during the
first half of 1933.

Through recent amendments, all
owners of revolvers must register
their weapons with the police before
January 1st. next, and the police
are asking that those in possession
of revolvers start registering now
in order to save confusion at the
last minute. The registration is
aimed at criminals as a means of

Construction of B. C. And
Alaskan Highway Again
Urged
Construction of a 814,000,000
Northern British Columbia and
Alaska highway was urged last
week at a meeting of the Engineering Bureau of the Vancouver Board
of Trade by Ray Clark of Wennchee
who said that tentative plans had
been made for financing the project.
Col. J. M. Rolston, provincial government locating engineer, also
addressing   the   meeting,  declared
that the route offered no engineer
ing difficulties and it would be comparatively cheap to construct at an
approximate cost of $10,000 per
mile, The route selected, he said,
would run east of the Coast Range
to escape winter storms. From
Hazelton the highway would follow
the Skeena River to the Klappan
and skirt the Klappan to Dease
Lake and thence North.

Granby Co. May Close
Down Anyox Plant
In Few Months
Continued from page 1
panying the letter is as follows:
"Notice is hereby given of an
extraordinary meeting of shareholders of the Granby Consolidated
Mining, Smelting and Power Company Limited, to be held at Room
819, No. 25 Broad Street, Borough
of Manhattan, The City of New
York, State of New York', United
States of America, on December 12.
1934 at 10:30 o'clock in the forenoon
for the following purposes: (1) To
consider the advisability of and to
take action on closing down the
Anyox properties or, in the alternative, to authorize the Board of
Directors to do so, if and when in
its judgment it is deemed advisable;
(2) To consider and take action
with respect to the Company's finances, the making of further borrowings and/or selling the Company's products; (3) To consider
and take action on all other matters
that may come before the meeting-
"Only stockholders of record at
close of business November 28,1934-
shall be entitled to vote at said
meeting."
It is regretable that the Granby
Company are contemplating such
drastic action as the closing of the
Anyox plant, but it is in a difficult
position and apparently drastic
action is necessary, if oopper prices
do not improve within the next few
months.
At the time of writing the world
price of copper outside of the United
States is 6i cents a pound. From
this must be deducted selling
charges which lessens even this
small figure.
Granby copper is forced to compete in the world's markets with
the products of Chili and Africa
where extraordinary large deposits
of ore occur. These deposits are of
a higher grade than at Anyox and
labor costs are lower.
Following an expenditure of $3.-
000,000 on construction work by
the Granby Company, the first
furnace was blown in on Maroh
17th. 1914. At the present time
5000 tons of ore are treated every
24 hours, employing at the present
time 1260 men. The town of Anyox
has a present population of about
2500 people.
In a later issue we hope to give
our readers an outline of the history of the Granby Company's operations at Anyox.
Miss    Doris  Gallagher
Honored At Shower
Is
About sixty guests were present
at a miscellaneous shower given by
Mrs. Jacobson and Miss Marguerite
Jacobson in the Mine Hall on Monday, November 12th., for Miss
Doris Gallagher. A large number
of useful and desirable gifts were
"showered" upon the fortunate
young lady, these being contained
in a miniature boat, which was
placed before the recipient by a
group of girl friends. Delightful
refreshments were served and a
social time enjoyed by all, after
which the company indulged in
dancing. Miss Gallagher is to be

Vandals A and B Teams
Quit League
The withdrawal of the Vandals
from the local basketball league
has oreated a situation unprecedented in local hoop circles. A
deadlock, with the mine squads
refusing to play for a referee elected by the commission, and the
commission standing upon constitutional grounds, bids fair to disrupt the game entirely-
Many have expressed the opinion
that the referee in question, could
aud should cut the Gbrdian knot
by handing in his resignation.
While such a solution may be
undertaken, the commission take
the stand that in requesting or
accepting such resignation they
would be creating a precedent
which might prove the downfall
of the sport in the future.
The remaining teams, while sympathising with the underground
men. are lining up with the commission.
The suggestion has been made
that another "A" team be formed
at the beach. This would leave
the miners out in the cold but it
remains the only satisfactory 'way
to cuntinue the league as originally
scheduled. The Mine have been
providing most of the real opposition to date and will be sadly missed. A drop in attendance is almost
certain. At the moment, basketball is iu poor condition to stand
more punishment.
Mission  Service   Held
At Christ Church
A wonderful Missionary Service
was held at Christ Church on Wednesday evening last. The service
was conducted by Capt. A. Hutchinson, assisted by Capt. C. Hanney.
They are members of the Anglican
Church Army, and are conducting
a "Mission of Witness" throughout
this Diocese. Capt. C. Hanney,
who has a splendid voice rendered
several solos and also led in the
singing of several hymns and
choruses. Capt A. Hutchinson presented an inspiring sermon that
was enjoyed by the small but very
appreciative congregation.
A special service is to be held
tomorrow evening, Sunday, and
every person is cordially invited.
Come out and meet these two worthy membes of the Church Army
ind join with them in giving thanks
to our Creator.

News   Crowded   Out
Owing to au abnormal amount
of news this week, several local
news items have been crowded out,
but we hope to be able to publish
these next week.
Month by month the profits of
the Pacific Great Eastern Railway
continue to increase. Before mining was undertaken on a large scale
in the Bridge River Country this
railway was costing the people of
British Columbia thousands, of dollars each year. Now it is showing
a nice profit. Mining alone is responsible for this happy state of
affairs.
