Gasoline Speeder Spills
Its Occupants When
Leaving Track
An accident, which ended luckily for most of those involved, hut
which placed one in the hospital,
ooourred last Saturday morning,
when a gasoline speeder, operated
hy the Consolidated Homestake
Mining and Development Co, left
the railway track and took a
header in the ditch.
The speeder was on its way to
Camp 8, and the accident occurred
about three miles from the Government wharf. It was proceeding
at a leisnrly pace, when for some
unexplained reason it suddenly left
the traok, throwing the occupants
into the air. Messrs J. Strombeek
and T. Tavener were hurled down
the slope, and the speeder rolled
completely over both of them, .but
fortunately they were lying in a
hollow and escaped being crushed.
Messrs. J. Trinder and E. Ness
were spilled along the track. On
examination it was found that E.
Ness had sustained a bruised knee
, and that J. Stombeck had broken
his arm a short distance above the
wrist, which was also dislocated.
He was taken to Anyox Hospital
immediately, where he received attention. The injury was found to
consist chiefly of a fracture of part
of the arm, and it is expected that
he will return home today, although he will be incapacitated for
some time.

Enthusiasm Prevails as
Anyox Mine Club Elect
Officers
Always of special interest is a
meeting of an organization whereat an election is held, and this
bright particular feature was the
star attraction, when members of
the Mine Club assembled on Sunday evening to appoint their new
head and exeoutive body to carry
on the affairs of their Club for the
coming fall and winter season.
Applause and expressions of good-
fellowship punctuated the meeting,
excellent suggestions for the good
and welfare of the Club were forthcoming, and an ambitious programme of entertaining foreshadowed. By acclamation J. K.
Russell was declared President,
Mr. Russell succeeds Ed. Pearce,
who, upon vacating the chair, was
tendered a sincere vote of thanks.
In reply, the retiring President
modestly waived aside all praises.
Also by acclamation, Harry
Gobel became Vice-President, and
J. A. McMaster, Sect-Treasurer.
Wm. Pearce, Chairman Social
Committee. For the executive
committees the following were
elected chairmen upon a vote being taken: Dance: J. T. E'vans;
Radio: Steve Jones; House: Win.
Watkins.
The chairman of the sports committee will be appointed later, owing to previous nominees for this
position declining.
At the close of the elections, the
question of appointing a Janitor
for both the Mine Hall and Club
quarters was discussed, and a
motion that tenders be called for
the work carried.
In order that winter entertainment can get away to a good start,
a committee of four was appointed
to organize a membership drive.
Messrs. J. A. Ryan and Phil.
Harris were appointed auditors,
and Messrs. Harold Scott, S. D.
Murray and W. J. Pearce appointed Trustees. Great interest is being shown in the Club's activities
throughout the camp.
Local Resident Returns
From Scene of Atlin
Gold Rush
Dick Bredenberg arrived in
Anyox and Alioe Arm on Tuesday
from the Atlin country, where he
has spent the past summer. In
regard to placer mining conditions
there, Dick says J&at no big
quantities of gold have been taken
from any creeks yet. The best
claims on Gold Pan creek, owned
by Grady and Ford will pay their
owners a little more than good
wages. Lots of those who went in
last spring never reached the
creeks he says, but turned back
upon receiving indifferent reports.
It is planned, however, by several
mining companies to hydraulic
next year, on some of the creeks,
as almost all the ground is too
deep to work by hand methods,
and this method may result in a
big cleanup.
The country is full of game and
Dick was successful in shooting
two mountain sheep, and will have
the heads preserved. Photographs
of the heads show them to be fine
specimens. You don't hunt game
in that country says Dick, you
just go out and shoot them, when
you want one.
Toric Mill Construction
Will be Speeded Up
A. C. H. Gerhardi, managing
director of the Homestake Mining
and Development Co., arrived from
a business trip to New York on
Thursday. In regard to future
operations at the Torio mine, he
stated that underground work
will uot be recommenced until the
completion of the concentrator
mill, which it is hoped will be in
operation early next summer.
Owing to the steep nature of the
ground, it is, at the present time
impossible to provide storage for
the ore coming from the mine, and
as it is too valuable to waste, mining operations will be suspended
for a time.
According to plans an early
start will be made on the construction of the mill next spring.
Snow will be cleared from the' upper end of the Dolly Varden railway, and it is expected that
machinery and supplies will be
shipped through early in May.
Shotgunn Accident
Occurs Near Golkeish
An uiifortunate shooting accident occurred near the Golkiesh
mine on Wednesday, when Bruno
Moura accidentally shot himself
with a shotgun. It appears that
Moura was in a rowboat with a
loaded shotgun lying in the bottom
rowing along the beach, and in
making a landing the boat struck
a rock, and the vibration discharged the gun. The unfortunate man
received the full charge, the shot
fracturing the pelvis and penetrating the bowels, carrying with it
pieces of clothing. He was taken
with all speed to the Anyox Hospital, where he lies in a critical condition. He is of Italian nationality, aged 32 years, and was employed at tlie Golkeish mine.
Big Banquet Booked for

The big annual Sports' Banquet
given by tlie Anyox Community
League, will be held in the Recreation Hall, on Monday evening,

the players of the teams. All those
taking part in the various summer
sports, and the supporters of the
games will be there en masse.

Good  Copper  Prices
Means Increased
Prosperity
Matalliferous mining in British
Columbia ha?, by reason of the
prices obtaining for silver, lead
and zinc, been pro tit able and development of these classes of properties has been proceeding apace
with very fair prospects of increasing production as new properties
get on the shipping basis.
• Only copper lias remained a laggard on account of the low prices
obtaining for the red metal. However, Europe is increasing its takings of copper, and there is an enlarged demand for domestic consumption in tlie United States.
This is responsible for a moderate
rise in the price, which is now
close to 15 cents per pound, and is
making our two copper properties
operating in British Columbia
yield prolits. The margin of profit
is narrow on prices around 13£
cents which was not far from the
average price for the past eighteen mouths.
With the opening of the Copper
Mountain property and the Allenby
concentrator of the Granby Company, there will under full operation, be added to the capacity of
the Province, 20,000,000 pounds
per annum which, with the 40,-
000,000 capacity at Anyox, and
the 30,000,000 pounds at Britannia, means in total an important
industry for British Columbia.
When it is taken into consideration that it takes between 10 and
11 cents on the average in North
America to produce a pound of
copper, it will be realized that
where a copper mining and metal-1
lurgical industry exists, a great
percentage of the ultimate price of
copper goes into labor, materials
and supplies which subserve the
business interests of the territory
in which these industries operate.
Thus it becomes evident what an
important influence a healthy and
prosperous copper industry has on
general business.—B. C. Financial
Times.

of very rich ore.
The vein is of considerable thickness, and while no high grade has
as yet been encountered, the find is
very rich, it is said.

Fox Farming Booming
For the past few years, western
Canada has been experiencing a
steadily growing boom in silver
fox farming and on the Island of
Vancouver today there- are about
forty ranches, whereas less than
eighteen months ago there were
only four or five. The same proportionate growth is taking place
all over the west.

News comes from Beaverdell
that Duncan Mcintosh has made
another big strike on the Bell
group which is said to rival the
strike of two years ago when he
humped into an $18,000 ore pocket
when clearing ground for a tennis
court. On this occasion the find
has been equally unexpected, uncovering an ore shoot of high grade
silver which is widening as development progresses. Only a fortnight ago, Mr. Mcintosh purchased an eighth interest in the Bell
group from his partner Pat. Crane
for $40,000, and the new strike is
conservatively estimated to be sufficient to more than repay Mr. Mcintosh for the outlay which made
him the sole owner of the property.
The latest strike at the Bell is
said to have awakened even greater enthusiasm in the camp than
was the case when the Federal in-
terests recently acquired the Sally
group for $500,000.
Anaconda Copper Co.
To Enlarge Plant
The Anaconda Copper Mining
Co. through John D. Ryan, chairman, and C. F. Kelley, president,
announces that practically the en
tire Great Falls plant of the company will be enlarged about one-
third. Mr. Ryan stated: "The demands being made upon the various non-ferrous metals' industries
as a whole are showing a remarkable increase, due to the enormous
quantities of copper, lead, and zinc
that are required to meet the
growth of transportation, building,
and electrical industries in most of
tjie countries of the world. Notwithstanding copper is being produced at a rate never exceeded in
the history of the industry, available stocks have shown a steady
decline and proportionate to the
demand, sire lower than at any
previous time. The volume of
copper business done in the last
three months exceeded that of any
like period in the industry. The
same may be said of the output
and demand for lead and zinc.
A good match will burn up a
home and a bad match will break
one up.
