Anyox Plant Operated
to Full Capacity in
Past Year
The year ,1925, which terminated
last week has been a fairly successful one for the Granby Consolidated Mining, Smelting & Power
Co. Ltd.
During the year the big plant
at Anyox has been in continuous
operation. Three furnaces have
been in operation at the smelter,
and the concentrating mill has
been milling around 1200 tons of
ore per day.
Enlargements are now in progress at the mill, which, when
completed will increase the capacity to 1800 tons per day.
Ore at the mine is being taken
out at the rate of about 100,000
tons per month.
With the continuous operation
of the smelter and mill throughout
the year, it is confidently expected
that a record production of copper
has been made during 1925.
Total production figures for the
year are not yet available, but
following are the totals for three
quarters, up to September 30th.
First quarter: Value of copper
produced, $1,292,734.79.
Second quarter: $1,405,183.61.
Third quarter: $1,352,752,81.
Tlit- nat production of copper for
the quarter, was 9,502,334 pounds,
an average of 3,167,445 pounds per
month, as compared with 10,219,-
825 pounds total and a monthly
average production of 3,406,608
pounds for the preceding quarterly
The cost per pound of marketable copper produced was, during
third quarter, 10.04 cents as compared with an average cost of 10.-
31 cents per pound for the preced-
i ing six months. These costs include all fixed and general charges
I.other than depreciation of plant
1 and equipment, and are after ap-
I'plying the usual oredit for precious
1 metal values and miscellaneous
[' earnings.

The press of the  world these
days is full of advice.    If we wish
to live to be a hundred years of
age we are told what to eat, drink,
and wear.   Who to have for companions, and a hundred other useful hints.   If we wish to die worth
a million or two, we have only to
read a few articles in a   15  cent
magazine, and the much longed for
wealth is ours    If all these advice
giving writers were of the same
opinion  we may possibly   derive
some benefit from the reading of
their articles, but they   are   not.
They contradict each other, and
the average person  after perusing
various opinions set before him is
puzzled what to do.    The way
we see it is that what suits one
person   does   not    suit    another.
One person can live for a hundred
years without taking any extra precautions, while his neighbor, who
is striving to prolong his years may
pass out before the half  century
mark is reached.   Wealth is something we all desire.    We can't all
make a million before we die, even
if we did read  the biography of
every successful business man that
has ever lived.    If we use good
honest sound  judgement,   during
our short sojourn on this earth,
both in health and financial affairs
we shall make more headway by
using our own brains than listening to others, who themselves have
not lived to be a hundred years of
age or yet made a million dollars.

the Victoria Times, under heading
of November 24th. Following are
two paragraphs from the published report:
"The big house which greeted
the 1925 Christmas pantomime of
Reginald Hincks, as presented last
night for the first time by the
Playhouse Theatre Players, voted
the entertainment a great success,
and the best that he has written."
"The music in the pantomime is
bright and snappy, and the songs
immediately find favor with the
patrons. Dancing also is one of
the features of the show, the Misses
Edna Herrin, Frances Kelley and
Florence Kelley giving an exposi
tion of dancing which delights
everyone. Their performance is
most commendable."

Another Copper
For Canada
The option taken by H. P.
Whitney, of New York, and asooi-
ates on the Flin Flon copper property in northern Manitoba will be
exercised and development on a
large scale undertaken. It is understood that tho plans of the purchasers involve an expenditure of
approximately $24,000,000, ^ including the purchase price. The
smelter and mill to be erected will
cost about. $15,000,000 and power
is to be developed oil the Churchill River at a cost of about $4,500,-
000. About 3,000 tons of material will bo hauled to Flin Flon
from The Pas this winter iu readiness for operations in the spring.
This development is expected to
give a great stimulus to other
mining enterprises in the area, as
the Canadian Pacific Railway will
build an extension of the branch
now terminating at Nipawin.
Sask., 131 miles west of Flin Flon.
A shorter route would be provided
by an extension of the Hudson
Bay railway and the construction
of a branch line, and there is likely
to be keen competition between
the companies.
Ancients Solved Rustless
Iron Problem
Evidence continues to accumulate that the technician of old
knew a thing or two, and what
they did is often puzzling to us
moderns. The iron pillar of Delhi,
in India, was erected about 300 A.
IX, is about twenty-three feet high,
and weighs between six and seven
tons. How it was made is a
mystery, and why it has not rusted, having remained intact for 1,-
600 years, is not understood by
the Copper and Brass Research
Association. A recent analysis
shows the iron to be unusually
pure except for 0.114 per cent,
phosphorus, and photomicrographs
show no slag inclusions. Sir
Robert Hadfield finds much that is
| unexplainable, even after modern
I methods of analysis and examina-
I tion have been applied.

James Donald Fatally
Shot at Stewart on
January 1st.
Well Known In Alice Arm
Junius Donald, who, is well
known in Alioe Arm as a prospector and miner, met his death by a
gunshot wound at Stewart on the
morning of January 1st.
Mr. Donald spent several
years in Alice Arm, where he
followed liis occupation as a miner,
and his many old friends will he
sorry to hear of his untimely death.
He left Alice Arm about three
years ago, and spent one winter
with his brother in the State of
Washington. He was a native of
Forfarshire, Scotland, and was 43
years of age.
He was in Stewart in 1910, and
later came to Alice Arm.
The following extracts are taken
from the report of his death, published in the Portland Canal News.
"The finding of this jury is that
James N. Donald came to bis
death by a gunshot wound, evidently inflicted by a .32 calibre
automatic pistol in tlie hands, of
one of the two women present in
the kitchen of tbe house in question, and known as Gladys Gale
and Ruby Dolan.
"This was the finding of the coroner's jury called for the purpose of
investigating the death of "Jimmy" Donald, one of the district's
old time and best known miners,
who was found shot and killed at
about 4 o'clock on the morning of
January 1st.
"Coroner H. A. Whillans, who
presided at the inquest with a jury
composed of W. S. Orr, foreman;
G.' C. Andrew, S. G. Lawrence,
Sid Fraser, Frank Bowler, and W.
H. Watson, first oalled Dr. Carson
of Premier,  who had   made   the
post mortem examination, and
testilied that death had been almost instantaneous as the result of
a gunshot, wound on the right side
of the abdomen."
The report then deals at length
with evidence iu regard to tlie
finding of tbe body. Following is
the evidence of the two women
who were iu the house at the time
of the shooting:
"Gladys Gale was then called but
would say nothing except on tlie
advice of a lawyer, other than that
she bad not shot James Donald,
though she was in the room at the
time. She admitted that there
was three people in the kitchen,
herself, Ruby Dolan and James
"Ruby Dolan took much the
same stand as regards saying
nothing except on the advice of
a lawyer; she admitted however
being in the house at the time.
"Coroner Whillans then instructed the jury to retire and bring
baok their verdict, telling them
that there was one of three findings they could bring in—murder,
manslaughter or suicide—that it
was important for them to remember in connection with suicide that
neither of the women olaimed that
death occurred by suicide, and that
they were in the house at the time.
Gladys Gale admitted she was in
the room at the time. The question must be considered on the
strength of the evidence given, and
from several angles If deceased
had shot himself they would have
said so. The jury then retired and
returned in ten minutes with their

Japanese Alpinists Climb at Jasper
HEADED by Yuko Maki, under
secretary of the Japanese
Alpine Club, six noted Japanese Alpinists have left Jasper
Park Lodge, at Jasper, Alberta,
for a twenty-five days' trip into
the Columbia Icefield, one of the
least-known portions of the Canadian Rockies. Their trip will
take them to the headwaters of the
Athabasca and North Saskatchewan fiivers, and an endeavor will
be made' to climb Mount Alberta, a
virgin peak which has so far defied all efforts to conquer its
higher slopes. Members of the
party state that if the territory
lives up to their expectations it
will attract hundreds of Japanese
Alpinists annually. The expedition is elaborately equipped scientifically and the equipment includes still and   motion picture
cameras and a complete dark room
with which pictures will be developed in the field. Three Swiss
guides, Heinruch Puhrer, Hans
Kohler, and Jean Webber,, from
Jasper Park Lodge, are accompanying the party and five guides
and forty horses from the outfitting stables of Fred Brewster, are
being used on the trip. This is the
largest party which has left the
Lodge this year, and the first party
of Japanese Alpinists to tackle
some of the untried fields of the
Canadian Rockies.
The party is shown ready for the
start from the Brewster ranch.
