Operations to Re-commence
On Sunset
The Keystone Mining Co/who
recently bonded the Sunset property on Roundy Creek, will recommence operations on the property
at once. Arrangements have been1
malde with Mr. Geo. Clothier, distriot mining engineer whereby a^
trail will be constructed from tide
water, so that pack horses can be
taken to the property. As soon as
the. trail is finished a new camp
will be built, and the work of driving the tunnel will then commence.
Mr. E. Martin Thorniley, who
recently examined the property on
behalf of the^ Keystone Co. was well
pleased with the possibilities of the
property and stated that work on
the tunnel will probably be'oontin-
ued throughout the winter.
New Ore Strike Made on
Mr. 6. W ,Morley, who has been
working on his property, the Sunrise, for the-past three months,
states that another fine showing of
ore has been discovered on the
property. The orevein has a width
pf 26 feet between walls, and can
be traced on the surfaoe- for, three
claim lengths. A open out. 15 feet
deep has been driven across the
ore body, and .some nice samples of
ore were brought to town,- 'The
ore is a silver-lead.
The Sunrise is situated on
McGrath mountain at a elevation
of 3,400 feet. Early next spring a
camp will be built and a tunnel
driven on the ore vein.
Construction Work at
Anyox Progressing
The programme of construction
work planned by the Granby Co
at Anyox for this year is being
oarried along successfully.
The new big storage dam is now
practically oompleted, and is giving
entire satisfaction. This dam
whioh is'the 17th of it's kind to be
built, is the highest dam in Canada.
With its completion the power
costs of the company will be considerably lowered, and the costly fuel
problem will be a thing of the
past. '
The big concentrating plant is
rapidly taking shape. The operation of the plant was scheduled for
February, of next year, but
owing to the fire during the summer, work was delayed/ It is,
however,' hoped that the time lost
will be made up, and that the' big
mill whioh will be the finest, on the
North American continent, and the
last word in concentrating copper
ore, will be in operation, early in
the spring.
The work of installing the
machinery at the No. 1. Power
House in connection with the hydro
electric, power; from.,the, new dam is
proceeding rapidly, and the place is
a hive of industry. ,
With the completion of the various works now being undertaken,
the Granby Company will be one
of the best equipped miming companies in the world. The only fly
in the; ointment is the present low
price of copper, but this will eventually, right i,tsel^ and let us hope
that it will be soon.

Provincial Party
Hold Meetings at
Anyox & Alice Arm
The leaders of the newly formed
Provincial Party paid their first
visit to Anyox and Alice Arm
during the week, and the people of
the two towns had ah opportunity
of listening to the views of the newest political party of the. province
and also to the criticisms .levelled
at the heads of the conservatives
and liberals, of which there were
plenty. The speakers,, were: General A. D. McRae, who is present
leader of the party, A. M.Whiteside
and J; Nixon. *•
The Anyox .meetings were held
in the Recreation Hall, on Monday
evening, and at the Mine Hall, ou
Wednesday evening. At the Monday evening meeting, Mr! R.
Armour occupied the chair, and
asked the audience to listen with
open minds to what the speakers
had to say.
General McRae, opened his
address by apologising for his nonappearance six , weeks. j.~"o«« bit,!,
owing to his failure to make necessary boat connections, and the
fact that it was imperative to fulfil
an appointment in Vahouver, I
was unable to be here ou the date
The-General said that during the
past nine mouths he had covered
the whole of the province,' and the
party has now an active membership of 20,000 active members, and
by the time the convention is held
we hope to have a membership of
30,000, which is more than that of
the other parties combined.
Disclaiming as to his capabilities
as a politician he said he was still.
in the kindergarten class. Onr
task is to bring about a responsible
convention, said the General, and
it has got to be a citizens' convention in every sense of the word;
There will be eight representatives
from eaoh riding, and these representatives will expound their views
at the convention.
Referring to the farmers, the
speaker said that 50 per cent, had
given up their right along the G.
T. P. and people were moving out
from the Cariboo district, and were
now looking to the Provincial
Party for salvation. British Col
umbia is a big company, of which
we are all shareholders, and the
Premier is the general manager.
What do you think of it all? and
what is your opinion of the geuer
al manager?- tor after all, the
Premier is the head of this corporation.. Our finances are very sick,
and' the taxation is excessive.
This question of taxation forms no
small part in the oost of high
cost of living. Sinoe the Premier
has been in Office, our debt has
increased to $62,000,000 and it is
reasonable to assume that by the
time his term of office expires it
will not be very far. short of
$100,000,000.    I am glad to say
that this party has a way out and
that is by the development of our
natural recources. Mining offers
one of the best examples of an
industry that is suffering from
exoessiv.e taxation, and we must
offer more encouragment to the
capitalist to dig the hidden wealth
from our hills. Our party says:
we will exempt you from taxation .
untij you get your capital back.
I strongly advocate lower taxation.
There is a lack of confidence today
iii B. C. mining properties aiid we
must repeal the present legislation.
The General closed by appealing
to everyone, whether   liberal   or
conservative, to rally round   \he ;
standard of the Provincial Party.
Mr.   A. M. Whiteside and.  J.  •
Nixon also spoke at considerable-
length, but space does not permit
a report of their speeches.
Alice Arm Meeting
The, meeting was held in the
Coliseum on Tuesday evening, and
a well filled hall listened with rapt
attention to the three speakers.
General A. D. McRae was the
first speaker. He commenced by
paying a tribute to the women of>
the province, who did their ".share'
of the work and were as much
interested in the provincial expenditure . at id - economy as. the- men. -
He stated that he was formerly a
Member of the conservative party
and that he was still a conservative
in federal politics.' He was dissatisfied with the conservative party
of. 'the. province. They had no
platform and no constructive
methods,- and the liberals had not
changed one bit from their old
methods. ;
He was convinced that the time
was ripe for a clean-up of the provincial political system, and for
this subject the provincial party
had been formed.
General McRae claimed it was no
good, sending independents to Victoria, They were not included in
the caucus, and were not consulted
at any time. The Provincial Party
is being formed around, which all
good citizens can rally. . The General stated that the new party is
becoming well organized and later
delegates will be chosen to attend a
regular convention, and elect leaders. The present officers are only
temporary but will hold office until
organization is complete. He said
that the old parties claimed that
the Provincial Party were dead but
wondered why they were so busy
touring the province OU the heels of
the Provincial speakers. He severely criticised the past administration of the Conservatives, and also
the present government. He
claimed that in all parts of the
province—with ja. very few exceptions—we have contraction, instead
of expansion. The people are
dissatisfied and are .leaving the
'country, -He charged the present
government with wilful extravag-
ence and the burden of taxation I
was strangling the industries of
the province, and debarring new
capital from coming' into the
country. -      ,
General McRae stated that every
man; woman or child iii the prov- >
inoe were paying taxes at the rate
of $43.00 per year, and that the
annual expenditure was $21,000,-
000. The Provincial Party was
opposed to Political patronage, and
would abolish it. He changed the
old parties with getting together
and saddling the province with the

Canadian Mining Institute
Will Meet at Trail
Heretofore the Annual General
Meetings of the British Columbia
Division of the Canadian Institute
of Mining and Metallurgy have
been held in Vancouver, as being,
on the whole, the most convenient
centre for gatherings of the kind.
A departure is being made this
year, however, in the decision to
hold the General Meeting in Trail,
with the dual purpose of enabling
coast members to acquaint themselves with the important mining
and metallurgical developments
taking place in the Kootenays, and
of indicating to Kootenay members
and mining men, the interest of
the Institute in their concerns and
problems. This meeting will be
held on Wednesday, Thursday,
and Friday, October 17, 18, and
19, and a cordial invitation is
extended to all mining men,
whether they are members or not,
to attend.
In addition to the presentation
of a large number of papers for
discussion, visits will be paid to
the Trail Works, and possibly also
to the Rossland mines. Nor has
the Committee forgotten to provide
for entertainment of a lighter sort,
and it may be affirmed that the
provisions in this respect will prove
by no means the least attractive
Moose Leader Visits Wales
Mr. James J. Davis Secretary of state for labour in the United States Government and
director General of the Loyal
Order of Moose is at present paying
visit to his birthplace, at Tredegar,
in Wales, Speaking at a reception he said:
"Tredegar is a fine place, it is good
to come back and visit the old home.
It inspires one and keeps alive the
memory of the influence of a child-'
hood., But there is a vastness of
opportunity in the United States
to which I see no parallel in this
country for men like myself
and thousands of others But what
a beautiful country it is," he added
pointing to the green hills rising
above the industrial valleys,"/
"I have spent some time in
Switzerland; but not even
Switzerland can compare with the
beauty.of Wales."—The Western

New Barber Shop For Anyox
Work has commenced on the
erection of a building opposite the
cement block closely adjacent the
Mess House, which when finished
will be utilized as a Barber Shop.
The building will be 25ft. by 15ft.
and will contain three chairs, with
Frank Stringham in command.
The existing Barber Shop at the
annex, will be closed, but for the
convenience of those living in the
vicinity of kihe Pool Room there
will be one chair iu the Pool Room
itself. There is no doubt that with
the change of the location increased
business should result.
It is expeoted that the building
will be completed-by the* end of
this month.

There are many lessons of the Postage Stamp, but there is one which,
though it be not new, is so important
I could wish that all men might learn
it. The suocess of the Postage Stamp
is in this; that it doth stick to one

through its government, has been

the views of the ministers may be on

Producers say that while many are
talking of poor copper Bales an unusually good volume of business is being
done at 18 84 cents delivered, One
independent said he had averaged
about 2,000,000 pounds a day for the
past week, and Is entirely sold out well
into October. Wire mills are buying
in good volume, but refuse to pay
more than 13 8-4 cents, and are desirous of early deliveries. i
European buying is averaging
around 2,000,000 pounds a day from
Export Association and independents
with Prance, England, Italy and Scandinavian countries buying in good
volume, but with German purchases,
small and sporadic. Some inquiry is
appearing for first-Quarter domestic
shipments, but few are willing to pay
more than current last-quarter prices
for such shipments. There is a dispose
ition upon part of some independents
to prefer sale of moredistantdeliveries
to nearer by anticipating advance in
price for nearby copper in case Ruhr
.situation is settled-and most European
buying should increase as result.
Most refineries are having difficulties
in keeping tip with orders. While
there is a tendency to believe last
quarter business in copper will not
keep up the average of the first eight
months, many agencies say that as yet
they can see no signs of any slackening in demand when it is considered
that main fall buying usually sets in
late in September.
Most foreign and domestic business
consists of moderate individual sales
as at present no notable large inquiries
are making the rounds.
Were it not for general feeling of
uncertainty as to fall demand, price
could be expected to show decided
upward trend. However, unelss producers are willing to curtail output
about 10 per cent, until either opinion
can be formed ot winter demand here
and abroad, little advance in price
can be expected. Encouraging feature
of the situation is the small amount of
metal in hands of fabricators here and
abroad the demand is for nearby rather
than more distant deliveries.

assistance being given to both by
the government.
