Granby Co. Expending
Energies in Producing
Copper
The Anyox plant of the Granby
Consolidated Mining, Smelting &
Power Co., Ltd. is operating to
capacity,'and, a record oopper production has been made during the
past few months was tho statement made to the Herald a few
days ago by Mr. J. B. Haffner, assistant general manager.
Mr. Haffner said that no new
work was being contemplated at
the Anyox plant by the company,
but all energies will be directed towards producing oopper. The concentrating mill was giving satisfaction and handling between 1200
aud 1300 tons of ore per day.
A surplus of ore was being accumulated at the Outsider mine at
Maple Bay, now that an abundance of hydro-electric power was
available. This reserve will probably be drawn upon during the
winter, when power is not so
abundant.
Regarding development of the
Bonanza property, he stated that
the company would not undertake
development work this year.
Dr. J. Bancroft, who arrived
from McOill University recently,
would spend considerable time examining the Hidden Creek and
Outsider mines, and other properties which may appeal to the
company.
Last year the big plant was
operated continuously throughout
the year, and up to present the
same happy condition has prevailed during 1925,
Fame of Toric Mine is
Spreading
Messrs. J. B. Otto and A. W.
Yount, arrived in Alice Arm ou
Wednesday from Stewart. They
loft, the following day for the up-
p«i Kitsault country, where they
made an examination of the Toric
mine, aud also examined other well
known properties in the upper Kitsault country. Mr. Yount holds
considerable stock in the Consoli-
, dated Homestake Mining & Devel-
> opment Co. and also mining prop-
\ erties in the Stewart district.
He stated that he had read tlie
reports on the Toric property published in the Herald and was
anxious to view the property personally. He was also seeking information of other properties, reports of which had been recently
published in the Herald.
Farewell Party Given to
J. Conway
On Saturday evening August
8th., a farewell party was given in
honour of Mr. J. Conway, who ia
shortly leaving Anyox for Cumberland after holding the position of
Government Agent for nearly five
years.
Tho party was held at the residence of Mr. W. F. Eve, and during the evening solos were rendered by several of those present. A
splendid radio concert was also enjoyed.
During the evening a short address was given by Mr. W. J-
Kyle, who said how sorry they all
were to lose such a valued friend
as Mr. Conway. He referred to
Mr. Conway's long residence in
the north, and the enviable record
he had attained.
Mr. Conway spoke a few words
in reply and said that he was
genuinely sorry to leave so many
of his old friends behind. He had
spent 22 years in the north, and
the breaking of so many ties would
be an ordeal hard to overcome.
Those present were:
W. F. Eve, Bert Slielton, B. M.
Buck, Geo. E. Warwick, A. N.
Davie, W. Smith, J. W. Pottinger,
John McCallum, W. J. Kyle,

Anyox Baseball and
Football Games
Send a copy of the Herald to
your friends who are interested in
mining or furnish us with their
address and we will mail them a
sample copy.
The Smelter and Mine football
elevens fought to a scoreless draw
oh Monday evening. This is tlie
the third time these two teams
have met to decide the second
round in the Anyox Cup competition. Taken as a whole the display was a rather poor exhibition
of soccer.
The Miners nosed out the Smelter baseball nine on Tuesday evening in a game ,replete with errors
and weird plays.
Both pitchers were in good form,
each allowing five hits, Ross accounted for seven via the strikeout route, and J. Ferguson six.
V. Moore and Cole were the big
men with the stick, each getting
two hits, the former a three ply
blow and a single, the latter a
double and a single.
SUMMARY: Runs Hits Errors
Mine 5      5 5
Smelter 4       5 5
Umpires: Olson and Cody.
The Brother Bills continued in
their winning form, when they
slipped over a win on the Smelter
nine on Thursday evening by the
narrow margin of one run, the
score being two to one.
Cody on the mound for the winners was in fine form and consequently was very stingy with base
hits, three being the best the opposition oould gather off his slants.
Ross was touched for six t scattered
blows, miscues by his team mates
being the cause of his defeat.
Fred Brown was the big noise with
the stick getting three hits out of
four trips to the plate.
SUMMARY: Runs Hits Errors
Smelter 13 7
Elks 2      9 4
Umpiress Olson and Mcintosh
The Mine football eleven were
victorious over the Smelter on Friday evening by a two goal to one
count. The match was a sudden
death affair for the sweaters, emblematic of the league championship.
The Miners were the aggressors
during the first half, Nesbit notched the first one for the Mine after
about fifteen minutes of play on a
shot from close in that gave the
goal tender no chance to dear,
The same player put his team two
up a few minutes later on a nice
shot into the left-hand corner.
After the cross-over the' Smelter
seemed to hit their stride, only
high class work on the part of
Stan Stewart and Pynne on the
defence kept them from scoring.
Powell finally cut down the Miner's lead to one tally, on a beautiful shot from the eighteen yard
line, Jimmy Twaddle handled the
whistle.
The teams were: Mine: Pieroe,
Pynne. S. Stewart, Anderson,
Peters. Cane, Royl, Hunter, Nesbit, Jacques, Dearlove,
Smelter: Leeke, Wardrope,
Mathison, McKeown, Buntain, Mo-
Conachie, Armstrong, Campbell,
Dewar, Powell, McLeod.
Owners  of  Riverside
Will Operate Property
The owners of the Riverside
property, Messrs W. A. Wilson
and J. A. McDiarmid, have commenced the construction of a trail
from the Dolly Varden railway
track to their property. The
Riverside is situated on Granite
Creek, and owing to the steepness
of the bluffs the building of a trail
is difficult, although it is only 300
feet in length the creek has been
crossed twice in order to avoid
heavy rock work.
The owners have obtained some
specimens of high grade silver ore
from the property, and it is their
intention to drive a tunnel on the
ore vein, and the mining of ore
will be carried on during next
winter, according to present plans.
Forty Smeltermen Visit
Alice Arm
Nearly forty smeltermen of the
Anyox smelter paid a visit to Alice
Arm on Saturday last and enjoyed
the fresh air, greenery and flowers
to the full. They were transported on the Azurite by the Granby
Co., who have made it a praotice
during the summer months to
place the boat at the disposal of
each smelter shift. The men can
choose their own destination, and
the trip is made wl.en each shift
makes its long change, so that no
time is lost. Last Saturday the
weather was ideal, and everyone
enjoyed the six hours spent at the
mining town at the head of Alice
Arm, and the water trip was also
much enjoyed.
Big Shipping Tonnage
From Anyox
Shipping in and out of Anyox
continues brisk. Almost every
day steamships, barges and scows
arrive with oi'es, coal, etc., and depart south with copper, concentrates, and Coke Plant byproducts.
On Sunday the S. S. Mogul left
with 3700 tons of ore, concentrates
and copper. On her journey south
she had the misfortune to strike
Klew Nugget rock during a dense
fog. She returned to Prince
Rupert where a survey was made
of her hull to ascertain the damage
done.
The S. S. Marmion, towing the
Granby No. 1, left for Maple Bay
at 10 a.m on Sunday. She returned 1 a.m Tuesday with 250 tons
Outsider ore and towing the scow
Griff with 1000 tons. She left on
Wednesday noon for Stewart towing the Independent.
The S. S. Amur left on Wednesday afternoon for Tacoma, loaded
with 1850 tons of Premier ore, and
250 tons of copper from Anyox.
The S. S. Anyox arrived from
Prince Rupert on Friday morning
and left the same afternoon for
Stewart. ALICE   ARM  AND   ANYOX  HERALD,   Monday,   August   17,   1925

Gold Coming Out From
New Cassiar Gold
Diggings
Notwithstanding reports of repeated failures in the Cassiar gold
stampede, gold is being found in
paying quantities in Telegraph
Creek district, according to word
from Wrangell, Alaska, where the
first gold shipments have .arrived
by boat down the Stikine River.
On Gold Pan Creek, where William Grady and his partner made
the discovery which gave rise to
the stampede, they took 117
ounces from the original discovery
claims in fifteen days.
Next above Grady and Ford on
the Creek' is a claim owned by
Judge William G. Thomas of
Wrangell and worked by three
employees. It is producing equally
well.
On the claim of R. D. Brunei-,
the second below the Grady-Ford
claim, $30 worth of gold per day
to the man was being removed
when the last news came out.
Claims 15, 16 and 17 below,
owned by Albert Dease and partners, were yielding about $25 to
the man.
It is reported from Wrangell
that news that gold was really
coining out of tlie country has led
to a lot of restating.
With three men shoveling,
Grady and Ford took 12 ounces
the first three days of the cleanup
and four days later took seventeen
ounces,
Copper Ranging Around
15c. Per Pound
Nathan L. Bell, formerly well
known in B. C. liquor importing
circles, and Joseph Pheby of San
Francisco, have taken a lease and
bond on the Reno property at
Sheep Creek, from the Reno Gold
Mines, Ltd., the sum of §250,000
being involved in the deal. The
purchasers propose to form a company and development work will
proceed at once.
Mining circles in the Slocan
Distriot are elated over the fact
that ore has been struck at the
White Water Mine at a depth of
1,600 feet, as this proves that certain ore bodies in that region go
down deeper than hitherto proved.
Only one mine in   the   Crows
Nest Pass district is now idle.
Prospects of 15-cent copper is
good news to British Columbia,
where last year there was a production of 64,845,393 pounds.
For the year to date the price
has fluctuated up and down on
both sides of 14 cents, with that
figure being about the average.
At present the quotation in'New
York is 14 5-8 cents, witli the market rising and the promise held out
of 15 cents being eventually reached.
The average price of copper in
1924 was 13.02 cents a pound, and
in 1923 it was 14.42 cents.
The Granby Company at Anyox
produced about 45 per cent, of the
total output of the copper in
British Columbia last year, while
the Britannia, on Howe Sound,
was responsible for about 37 per
cent. The remainder of the output was divided between the Bel-
mont-Surf Inlet mine in the
Skeena division, the Rossland
camp and the Boundary-Yale district.

P. G. E. May be Completed
Following an announcement' by
Premier Oliver that he would personally inspect the Pacific Great
Eastern Railway, Hon. W. H.
Sutherland, minister of public
works, said .that the government
had ordered a complete investigation into the cost of completing
the links from North Vancouver to
Squamish and from Quesnel to
Prince George. The new figures
will be placed before the legislature next session for decision,as to
whether or not the province should
spend the millions that will probably be required to do the work.
Examiner (questioning applicant for
life-saving job): "What would you do
if you saw a woman washed out to
sea?"
Applicant: "I'd throw her a cake
of soap."
Examiner: "Why a cake of soap?"
Applicant: "To wash her back."
Any man seeing any woman at any
party, and seeing her again before
breakfast the morning after can't help
believing anything about evolution.
Some things people have worried
over in the past are like the summer
of 1925.   They never happened.

How a Donkey Discovered Famous Bunker
Hill Mine
How the scratching of a refractory burro made possible the
founding of a city, the working of
a great mine whioh has produced
many hundreds of millions in
mineral wealth, and the erection of
a million dollar hotel, is the romantic story of the origin of the
famous Bunker Hill and Sullivan
mine down in the Coeur d' Alene,
Idaho.
Back iu the year 1886, two Sullivan brothers set odt in the Coeur
d' Alene hills to prospeot for
minerals. In their venture they
had been grubstaked by two
friends Goatz and Baer, who little
knew at the time what far-reaching effects they would have on the
destinies of tlie west.
Toiling over rough ground
heavily laden with blankets and
tools, the brothers were faced by. a
steep hill up which they would
have to carry their heavy load.
Grazing on the rank stubble close
to hand was a very serviceable
looking burro Who it belonged
to, the brothers knew not, but
took a chance on using him, and
letting him find his way back to
his owner after he had given them
a lift up the hill with their heavy
packs.
That night the old burro was
turned loose but instead of returning to his owners, showed . his
natural cussedness by staying on
the ground with his new found
masters. During the night, in its
scratching on the sparsely covered
rocks he had disclosed to view an
outcropping of galena.
The Sullivan brothers staked
their claim, and the mine soon became one of the greatest in the
country.
Fortunate for tlie owners of the
donkey, one of the brothers declared that the scratching of the
animal had been instrumental in
finding the ore deposits, On the
ground that the animal was a
partner in the discovery, the owners Peck and Cooper began suit for
a share in the property. The case
was carried to the supreme court
of the United States, which ruled
that the donkey was the original
discoverer of the mine, and awarded its owners a third share in the
property.
The mine has had a long period
of production, and is still paying
large dividends. Out of the share
given to the original grubstakers
a hotel costing nearly a million
dollars was erected. Old Jack, the
donkey was pensioned off, and
after spending the remainder of
his life in ease, with never a pack
to carry, died of old age.
His carcass now stuffed, holds
pride of place in the Coeur d'
Alene hotel in Spokane. Visitors
to that hostelry are always assured of being told the story of how a
donkey discovered one of the
greatest mines in the country.
