Much Business Trans-
Acted at Anyox P.T.A.
The regular monthly meeting of
the Anyox Parent Teacher Association was held in the Public School
on Monday, January 16th. when
Mr. Sinclair, manager of the local
branch of the Canadian Bank of
Commerce, gave a very interesting
and)instructive talk on  "Banking."
During the evening solos were
very creditably rendered by Mrs.
Pinckney, and Mr. J. L. Anderson,
accompanied by Mrs. Kent, and
were very much enjoyed by those
A report of the Christmas Concert was read, showing total
receipts $57.82 and total expenditures $48.68; the largest item of
this viz: $39.20 being for materials
for the various costumes. Although
the proceeds were small, the concert
was nevertheless a decided success
and much credit was due to the
pupils and also the teachers who
were responsible for the training.
The association also wish to
thank the many mothers and interested ladies of the Costume Committee, who, under the able
convenorship of Mrs. W. F. Eve,
successfully completed a great deal
of work in the short time allowed.
This committee was composed of
Mesdames W. Simpson, K. O.
Peterson. Nellor, Hart, J. L. Stewart, B. Thorsteinsson, J. Cody, A.
Cameron, Kirby. A. Gigot. D. Roy,
McMillan, Shelton, Kidd, Patrick
and L. Campbell; also Misses
Richards, Hoadley and Hamilton,
who, besides helping to train the
children, also helped in the making
of the costumes. For the very
efficient serving of suitable refreshments to the children, after the
concert, credit is due to the Refreshment Committee, under the
capable convenorship of Mrs. H.
Kirk and Mrs. P. MacDougall,
assisted by Mrs. McMaster, and
Mrs. N. McLeod.
The association wish to take this
opportunity of thanking all other
members who helped to make this
concert a success; also the Community League and officials of the
Granby Company.
The Convenor of the Sports'
Committee reported that the money
voted for the public school basketball teams had been expended for
sweaters. The girls of the public
school have thus far made a cleanup of their so called rivals from the
high school; but the boys' division
stands tied two games all.
Speech on Banking by
Mr. Sinclair Creates
A very successful meeting of the
P. T. A. was held on Monday evening when Mr. Sinclair, manager of
the Anyox branch of the Bank
of Commerce delivered an
address on "Banking" to an audience pf fifty parents. The speaker
touched upon the history of banking
with occasional humourous illustrations from early records. He
showed that modern banking practice is comparatively a recent development side by side with which
still exist certain practices that
flourished in medieval times. With
special emphasis on banking in
Canada he dwelt upon the Bank
Act of which he gave a masterly
analysis and an explanation of those
sections which are of particular interest to the general public. In
dealing with the banks as "trustees
of the people's wealth" Mr. Sinclair
filled the role of ambassador of the
great institution whtch he represents most acceptably to a very
appreciative audience.
Additional pleasant features of
the evening were solos by Mrs.
Pinckney and Mr. Anderson before
and after the speech of the evening.
Mrs. A. R. Kent very kindly played
the accompaniments. On the initiative of the executive excellent refreshments were served.
Successful ArcadianOrchestra
A good crowd attended the
Dance on Friday evening January
13th. held in the Elks Hall by the
Arcadians' Orchestra. The Music
was excellent and everyone present
thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
The dancing was from 9 tol.
Paid-up membership in the asso
ciation has now risen to forty-two
with promise of being further swell
ed in the near future.    The govern
ing provincial body has presented
the local branch with a large scroll
of the Wier version of "0 Canada
which   was unveiled for the first
time at Monday's session.
The meeting passed a hearty vote
of thanks to Messrs. F. M. Kelley
and H. Kirk for having effected the
repair of the Balopticon, an expensive projection lantern that the
association some time ago presented
to the schools.
Once tried, always used,* none

Stores-Office Team Out
Of League
At a meeting of the executive of
the Anyox basketball league on
Tuesday it was decided to allow
the Stores-Office team to be withdrawn from the Senior Division.
Tlie remainder of the sohedule for
second half of the season will be
arranged for a three-team league.
The other teams will be allowed to
use the remaining playera of the
team withdrawn. This will overcome the necessity of calling upon
intermediate players to fill in the
gaps on some of the senior teams.
The frequent,appearance of high
school players on the floor in senior games has raised some question
of their status in the intermediate
league but a check-up of the games
played reveals no cases of ineligi
Teachers' Association
Discuss Plans
The teachers of the Anyox
Schools came together on Tuesday
to discuss plans for continuing a
branch of the Provincial Teachers'
Federation. The President, Mr.
D. J. Hartley, outlined the history
of the local branch which is organized as the'South Atlin Teachers'
Association. Membership is open
to the teaohers at Alice Arm, Kincolith, Stewart, Premier and other
schools in the district. The Association aims to promote the pro-
fessional growth and welfare of its
members, and by the interchange
of ideas to advance the cause of
education, and to assist in the solution of the community's educa
tion problems. The next meeting
will be held on Monday afternoon,
February sixth, in the Anyox

Alice Arm Chamber of
Mines Hold Monthly
The regular monthly meeting of
the Alice Arm branch of the British
Columbia Chamber of Mines was
held on Monday evening at the
School House. President O.
Evindson presided.
The minutes of the last meeting
were read by secretary A. D. Yorke
and adopted.
A letter was read from the Department of Mines regarding the
petition for a trunk road from the
end of the steel of the Dolly Varden
railway to the Kitsault Glacier.
The letter stated that the proposal would be considered,, and that
the matter would be taken up with
Mr. H. T. James, resident engin
The secretary also stated that a
cheque for $40.00 had been received
from the head office in Vancouver.
Some time ago they stated that they
would give $1.00 for every member
holding a $5.00 paid-up yearly
ticket. Secretary A. D. Yorke
forwarded forty names of ;'a«l
members and the $40.00 cheque
was the result.
Anyox P.T.A. Will Hold
Masquerade Dance
Much of the business transacted
at the P. T. A. meeting was related
to the dance which has become an
annual institution. A series of
motions passed in quick succession
by the meeting endorsed the appointment of Miss Hestyr Richards as
General Convenor, decided that the
dance should take the form of a
Masquerade, fixed the date for
Monday, February 13th. and set
the admission charge at one dollar
a couple with fifty cents for each
extra lady. As in the past the
association will rely upon the goodness of its friends for donations of
refreshments. Tickets will be
printed and sold in advance. With
numerous proposed expenditures
the Association is faced with the
necessity of at least equalling past
records of profit on the dance, the
Christmas Concert not having replenished the coffers to anything
like the extent expected.

Rinky Dinks, Mechanics
and High School Win
At the Gym. on Friday evening

The game was very fast throughout and the School boys put up a
game fight despite the advantage
their opponents had with the addition of Asimus to their lineup.

with 8 were high scorers for the
winners. Buddy Gillis and Sid
Armstrong with 5 each were high
for the losers.

49—21 The winners were too fast
for their opponents, scoring almost
at will. S. McLachlan was the
leading scorer with 23 points,
closely followed by Lindgren with
17. Bartman was high for the
losers with 10 to his credit.
Teams were:
Store-Office: Mclntyre; McLellan;
Riohie 3; Bartman 10; Spencer; J.

With the progress of mining,
the B. C. Chamber of Mines has
an increasingly large field of use-
fullness, and much interest is being
taken in this organization which
has for its object the furthering of
one of the principal industries of
the Province. The annual meet
ing is to be held this evening (10th)
when officers will be elected for
1928 and general subjects dis
Apart from the dissemination of
information to hundreds of callers,
the B. C. Chamber of Mines works
along several particular lines Perhaps principal of these is the
course of lectures held weekly
throughout the winter, the speakers
being the resident engineers and
prominent mining men. These
lectures have proved highly interesting. Classes are held for prospectors, and school pupils that are
interested in mining by the collection of ore samples. An important
feature of the work of the Chamber is the mineral display made
annually at the Vancouver Exhibition, which is developing a magnificent permanent array of ore
specimens from all parts of the
Aid. Frank E. Woodside, president, himself interested in mining,
gives considerable of his time to the
work, and with the able assistance
of Henry M. Browning, the indefatigable and obliging secretary,
the Chamber more and more is
establishing itself as a factor in the
progress of the industry. During
the year, the quarters on Pender
Street West have been enlarged,
and the larger facilities have proved a great convenience.—Western
Canada Mining News.
Automobiles Are Large
Metal Users
The importance of the automobile industry as a consumer of
metals is not generally realized.
About a quarter of all the aluminum, tin, and nickel produced in or
imported into the United States
finds its way into motor cars, as
well as about an eighth of the iron
and steel, copper, and lead.
Pouring of Copper at
Noranda Smelter Takes
Pouring of the first copper at
the new smelter of Noranda Mines,
Ltd., at Rouyn, Quebec, took place
at 4 o'clock in the morning on December 16th. Ceromonies appropriate to the occasion were held and
participated in by a number of the
officials of the company and guests,
including J. Y. Murdoch, president
of the company; Messrs. Thompson
and Chad bourn, of New York,
managing directors and promotors
of the original syndicate which
bought the company; Ed. Home,
the discoverer, and members of the
Tremoy Lake Syndicate which financed him; L. C. Fletcher, field
engineer for Noranda Mines, who
had charge of the property until
1925; A. E. Wheeler, who designed
the smelter, and F. Snow his assistant; F. M Connell and J. H. C.
Waite, of Toronto; and Ernest
Hibbert, the manager, and his
staff, who have brought the enterprise to its present stage.
The blowing in of the Noranda
smelter marks au important event
in the history of mining in eastern
Canada, as it is the first copper
smelter in Canada to be built east
of British Columbia. The plant
has a rated capacity of 1,000 tons
a day from two separate units-
rated at 500 tons each. The ore is,
however, an easy one to treat, so
that the rated capacity will probably be considerably exceeded.
World's Copper Output
Keeps Up
Copper production for November, according to the A. B. of M.
S., was at the rate of 4,730 tons a
day, compared with 4,680 in October. This is based on reports
from countries producing about 98
per cent of the world total. November showed the largest figure
reached since last February. Mexico, Chile, and the Belgian Congo
showed increases. Production from
the United States was a little higher in total tons, but the daily rate
was definitely lower than in the
preceding month.

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 Province
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 dono
are described in some one of the Annual Reports of the Minister of Mines. Those considering
mining investments should refer to such reports. They are available without charge on application
to the Department of Mines, Viotoria, B. C. Reports covering each of the six mineral Survey
Districts are published separately, and are available on application. Reports of the Geological

Results Attained from
1. 0. D. E. Pictures
The two shows at the Beach and
one at the Mine, put on under the
auspices of tlie I. 0. D. E. last
■week, were very successful, both
from the spectators point of view
and in a financial way. Mr. W.
F. Eve was in fine voice at both
shows at the Beach in two vocal
solos. Stewart Steele and his Orohestra rendered some excellent selections before the commencement
of the first performance and during
the intermission. At the Mine
Mr. W. R. Murdoch was well received in vocal selections and the
Mine Serbian String Orchestra
gave some delightful selections
prior to the start   of   the   show.

Dividend for Granby Co.
Has Been Authorised
The dividend of $432,262, declared last July and withdrawn,
was again authorized by the stockholders of Granby Consolidated
Mining, Smelting and Power company at a meeting held in New
York. This is at th'e rate of $1 a
share. Also the stockholders authorized a total distribution of $1,-
780,406. The dividend declared in
July was withdrawn in deference
to tlie British Columbia law which
does not permit disbursements by
the directors from capital unless
it is authorized by the stockholders.
When the $432,262 disbursement
will be made has not been announced, but in some quarters it is assumed that it will be in May. The
forthcoming disbursement will increase the grand total to $11,028,-
064 and will be the first payment
made in many years.
