Granby Co. Will
Log Their Limits
at Alice Arm
The Granby Consolidated Mining
Smelting and Power. Co. Ltd. have
deoided to commence logging operations on a number of their timber
limits in the vioinity of Alice Arm
and preliminary work has already
Mr. Huffner, assistant general
manager of the Granby Co. stated
to the Herald that the company
intends to commence logging operations on three of thoir limits as
early next spring as possible.
These three limits contain .40,000,-
1000 feet and lie on the north and
west of the laud now being logged
by the Abbotsford Logging Co.
The only work undertaken this
fall is the grading of one mile of
railway, and this,work was commenced on Thursday by Mr. Eric
Carlson who has secured a contract.
Mr. Haffner stated an early.start
will be made in the spring with the
building of camps, railways etc.
aud the assembling of equipment
so that as much logging as possible
can be done next year. He estimates-that from 100 to 120 men will
be employed throughout ^the^s.um-
cier, and that if operations were
successful, logging would be oarried
oi> in the Alice Arm distriot for a
good number of years.' No
arrangements had yet been made
for utilizing the DoHy Varden
Railway for the hauling of logs
from land on the west side of the
Kitsault River. ,
The company's sawmill at Larcum
Island, which was operated a few
years ago will be again put in commission and the logs will be sawn'
into squares for marketing. The
mill will be overhauled this winter.
The Granby Co. own considerable timber in this locality-, the
total being 55 sections, making 55
square miles, containing 450,000,-
000 feet of lumber.
■ Twenty-eight of these sections
I are in the Kitsault and Illiance
river districts, the balance being
located down the inlet, with the
exception of three sections in
Hastings Arm and three on Observatory Inlet, The timber limits of
the Grandy Co. extend about twelve
miles up the Kitsault river.
Final Payment Paid on
Lone Maid Property
The Anyox syndioate who two
years ago obtained a bond on the
Lone Maid (property made the final
payment last Saturday November
24th.1 to Mr. Geo. Chambers of the
Naas Harbor Cannery. The total
sum paid for the property was $7.-
000.00 and the syndioate is composed of seven men.
Since taking a bond on the property the Anyox syndicate have
done considerable development work
andihave proved t.faat good paying
ore>exists. In the last drift driven
five feet of ore was encountered
with a value of $52.00 per ton in
gold and silver,1 but owing to poor,
transportation facilities none of
this ore was shipped,
It is the intention of the company that now the final * payment
has been made, to again undertake
development work with a view of
blocking out sufficient ore for the
installation of an aerial tramway
for the shipping of ore.
Moose Charter
This Month
The Anyox Lodge of this Order
continues to expand. It can now
boast a membership of nearly two
hundred and fifty members, and
there is. every prospect of the
three hundred'mark being reached
before Deoember 25th, the date the
open oharter oloses.
The charter fee is now $10.00,
but will be, doubled after December
25th, \
The Distriot Deputy Supreme
Dictator is coming to Anyox from
Juneau, Alaska to pay an official
visit io this Lodge, whioh is now
so firmly established and has a
great future before it. The aims
and purposes of the Loyal Order of
Moose are to inspire lofty sentiments relative to humanity's
Esperanza Shipping.
Ore Getting Richer
The Esperanza mine is shipping
thirty tons of ore this week. ..„Trbe.,
staff at the mine'will be increased
in order to mine as quickly as possible the high grade native silver ore
now being encountered. This
vein of native silver tore is' now a
good six inches wide, with three
feet of good seoondary ore on the
hanging wall. Samples of this
high grade recently brought to
town proves that the verts, is
increasing in richness, some of the
samples containing more silver
than rock. In fact no suoh rioh ore
has been located in the camp since
the Dolly Varden ceased operations.
Dolly Varden Bonded
According to au article appearing in the Canadian Chemical and
Metallurgy Journal, of Toronto,
the Dolly Varden, and Wolf mining
properties, together with the railroad and wharf has been bonded
by New York capitalists, and that
according to> present, plans, work
on the properties will commence in
the spring. The bonding price
was not stated, nor the name of the
company taking the bond.
Cottonwood Lumber
From Alice Arm
Messrs. Miles Donald and A.
McPhail have taken out a quantity
of oottonwood logs, containing
about 15,000 feet of lumber for the
Granby Co. from their timber
limits a short distance up the Kitsault river. These logs will be
shipped south to ascertain if the
lumber is marketable. Should
suoh be the oase, the Granby Co.
will log off all the cotton wood on
the Kitsault flats when logging the
other timber. . The logs were
dumped into the river and floated
down to tidewater.

Interesting Debate Held
at Alice Arm
Alice Arm Man Flirts
with Davy Jones
Mr. .Gus Webber had a narrow
escape from a waterv grave on
Saturday last a few miles down
the inlet, Gus was delivering a
message onto the Awake. from a
row boat- when he took a high
dive into the icy water. A nasty
Wind was blowing and a strong
current was running and after
swimming for several minutes
makiug frantic efforts to reach the
Awake, Harry-Fowler the skipper
managed to hook him with a pipe-
pole, and the treacherous waters of
the inlet were oheated of another
. The second debate to be- held
this year under the auspices of the
Alice Arm Social League, was held
in the Anglican Church, on Tuesday
evening.. A large number of people
were present who had the pleasure
of listening to a very interesting
debate; .  -
The subject under discussion was:
"Resolved that hotels be permitted
to sell beer and light wines." Those
speaking in the affirmative were:
S. Dumas, A- D. York, F. Miller.
Negative: Al. Miller. J. M. Mor-
risou, C. P. Riel. President G.
Drennan presided in the chair.
The debate was opened by the
leader of the affirmative; Mr. S.
Dumas, who in a -forcible speech
stated that prohibition was based
upon a lie. The crime bill of the
United States was oyer $30,000,000
and that drinking beer in a public
bar was preferable to the present
system of drinking whisky in a
room,, among wild companions.
Mr. A. Miller leader of the negative, in a speech that made the
audience sit up and take notice,
maintained that, beer and wines in
hotels would convert them to
saloons strewn with, drunks, and
'the travelling public would be given
second consideration. The present
system also, means lower taxes.
Mr. A. D. Yorke, affirmative, in a
convincing manner, was certain
that the present system was doomed
unless there was a moral uplift aud
the only solution was the sale of
beer and light wines by hotels.
The non-.enforcero.eut of the present
law, is detrimental to the whole
Mr. J. M. Morrison, negative,
who was in a humorous vein, was of
the opinion that the present agitation for sale of liquor in hotels
was being done by the brewers.
The price would \ be higher than
urtdcr' the present system. The
old graft would be back, and the
return of the bar would provide a;
greater temptation to drink.
Mr. F. Miller, affirmative,
claimed that the people demanded
a change from the present system
and the Only solution was to revert
to the old days, when the bar was
in 'vogue. Before prohibition,

Mr. Clapp. ''■...
"Semi-pyritic smelting, such as
is conducted at Anyox, in contra-'

process. Chemically it is identical
with the operations in a converter .

Why the Herald
Did'nt Arrive
A large number of our readers
have doubtless wondered why they
have not received the Herald for the
past few weeks, but the fact of the
matter is the paper has not been
published. The cause of the suspension of publication was due to
the fact that the major portion of
the staff was on the sick list. As
it was impossible to procure efficient
help, at the time we were reluctantly obliged to discontinue publi
cation, We are extremely sorry
to disappoint our readers, but it
was a matter over which we had
no control. With the commencement of publication this week, we
hope, however, to give you an
uninterrupted service for a lpng
Local News in Brief of the
Past Three Weeks
The announcement of the Granby
Co. that they intend to undertake
extensive logging operations at
Alice Arm next summer, is good
news for the people of the town,
and is the kind of news we delight
in publishing. The entry of the
Granby Co. in the local logging
field will help considerably towards
the prosperity of the town, and if
they decide to log all their timber
limits in this locality it will mean a
big payroll for a number of years.
The Granby Co. have always been
strictly a mining complany, but by
going into the logging business
they are entering a new field, and
we wish them the best of luck in
their new venture.
Victoria, November 27—"a good
provincial police force is particularly
needed at the present time", said
Hon. A. M. Manson, Attorney-
General, speaking to the Provincial
Police bill in the Legislature the
other day. "If we can establish a
force which is'loyal and has real
esprit de corps, we , will be relieved
of the necessity of employing special officers in order to secure
enforcements of the provisions of
the Liquor Act. We do not want
to use suoh officers and this bill is
an effort to work without them"
said Mr. Manson.
The Granby Co. will not operate
their Copper Mountain property
until the prioe of copper increases
and stabilizes,
The sum of $79.60 cents has been
oollected for the Alice Arm Children's Christmas Tree. Collecting
boxes were placed in the various
stores around town.
A successful card party was held
by the Alice Arm Social League
on November 13th., and great
credit is due to the ladies, who
were the organizers. '
Owing ' to the prevailing low
price of copper, the Granby Co,
were forced to make a out v of 50
cents per day to all their employees,
at Anydx.
As a result of the heavy rains, a
landslide occurred at Anyox on
November 6th. carrying away
abont fifty feet of the big water
pipe from the dam to the power
house. The plant was closed for
five days, until repairs were made.
The big rains occurring in the
early part of November, did considerable damage to the Dolly Varden
railway, washing out considerable
portions of the track, and damaging
several bridges. The town of
Alice' Arm was in no danger of
being flooded, the maiii body of
water keeping well to the east bank
of the river.
, i
The returned men of Anyox and
Alice Arm' celebrated Armistice
Day, on November 12th. in royal
fashion. The Anyox celebration
was heid in the __lks Dug-out, with
Dr. Learoyd as chairman. . The
Alice Arm boys gathered at Miss
B. Crawford's and Mr. C. V. Evitt
of Prince Rupert was the man in
the chair.
Hon. Willian Sloan, minister of
mines; speaking in the Legislature,
showed that during the past few
years fatalities in coal mines had
been reduced 42 per cent., and that
conditions had been materially
improved. During the present
session further amendments to the
Coal-mines Regulations Act will be
passed. .
A boy bought from a local dog^dealer
a spotted dog.
The next morning it was raining,
but he took the dog out into the woods
but the rain was too much for him. It
washed the spots off, so he trotted
the dog back to the dealer.
"Look at this animal," he said. The
spots have all washed off." "Great
guns, boy he replied, there was an
umbrella went with that dog. Didn't
you get the umbrella?"

hotels were properly conduoted and
would be .again and a lot of the
present unlawfulness did not exist.
Mr, C. P, Riel, negative, stated
that the preseut system is excellent.
Everything is done legitimately at
the government stores, and the,
proper place to drink is at home.
The sale of beer and light wines at
hotels will be the stepping stone to
whisky by the rising generation.
Mr. S. Dumas in a 5-minute
rebuttal for the affirmatives, said
that the hotels are our homes when
travelling, and we should be
allowed to obtain a glass of beer
when necessary, instead of buying
two or three dollar's worth.
On a vote being taken, thr negatives were declared the winners by
the narrow margin of two votes.

the moisture and kelp the furnace
oyer the rough places, you will have
a clear conception of the fundamentals of the process. The chief
governing factor is the blast and
that is used in amounts greatly in
excess of the requirements of
reduction smelting. At Anyox
between 26,000 and 32,000 cu. feet
of air per minute is pumped through
each furnace, or the equivalent of
215 ft free air'per minute per sq.
ft. of hearth, area. Other things
being equal, the speed of the furnace and the composition of the
slag are, directly dependent upon
the amount of air blown through.
The greater the air, the more
iron is oxided, the more slag is
formed the more heat is generated
and the higher grade is the matte.
This of course, has its limitations;
in the amount of air that can be
forced through the ore column
without excessive back pressure;
and in the height of the ore column
necessary to absorb the heat rising
from the zone of intense, reaotion
very little part in the generation
of the heat. The greater part of it
is distilled off in the upper part of
the ore column and burns only on
reaching the top and. coming in
contact with the outside air. Even
that which is carried down towards
the focus and combines there with
oxygen is immediately robbed, in
its ascent through the ore column,
by the inoandesoent coke.'
"Ideally, a oross-section of a
pyritio furnace in operation will
show a column of incandescent silica
fragrants > over which trickle
streams of molten sulphide exposed
to the scorifying action of the high
velocity blast, which, oxidizes the
iron ou the surface with the evolution of a considerable amount of
heat. This ferrous oxide immediately combines with the nearest
silica, with a further generation of
heat, forming slag which drips
down toward the hearth picking
up on its way more silica, or lime,
depending on the local temperature. The sulphide continues down
losing iron continuously, until it
drops through the slot in the
jaoket crusts above the tuyers and
into the bath below. Its copper
content will depend upon how much
air was blowing through the
channel down which it passed, and
the amount of clean quart- it
encountered on the way.
"The thermal balance of a pyritio
furnace, even under ideal conditions
will show only a small excess of
heat over the amount necessary to
drive off the contained mixture,
decompose the limestone and melt
the oharge, with the necessary
losses in radiation, jaoket water
and stack gases, 4 In commercial
operation, the introduction of any
unusual amount of dyke rock, or
other oombined silicates, or even
ati excessive amount of fines in the
ore, will completely upset the balance, aiid the furnace will freeze up.
While we have run a furnace for a
period of 30 days or more without
any coke whatever, the operation
is too delicate, and we normally add
from 4 per cent, to 6 per cent, of
coke as thermal insurance.
"Smelting at Anyox is a tonnage
proposition. Eaoh of the four furnaces under proper conditions will
put through about 800 tons of orig
inal ore eaoh 24 hours (a duty of
6.5 tons per sq.ft. of hearth area
per day), and matters of metallurgical refinement in the way of close
balance of charges to furnaoe, com
position of slag, etc., are unknown.
A furnace will make its own composition of slag, depending on blast
and temperature, irrespective , of
the furnaoeman's desires in the
matter. Any portion of the oharge
which it cannot utilize in its. own
self-chosen combination, will remain
behind in the furnaoe as a crust.
Whenever the furnaoe is temporarily out of metallurgical balance,
some crust is formed and as it is
not in the direot path of the descending sulphides, there is nothing
to flux it out, and it remains and
groWs, Eventually it will olose a
furnaoe down. It oan be fluxed
out by the addition of large
amounts of ooke and limestone, but
we find it cheaper to shut the furnace down, dig it out and start
over again. By long practice our
furnaoe crews have reached'; that
stage of perfection where they can
blow out a furhace, dig it, repair
jackets, reassemble and have a
charge in it again in 24 hours. A
furnace campaign lasts from 10 to
40 days, and no attempt is made to
prolong its life after the1 tonnage
begins to fall. Any furnace which
fails to make 600 tons of new ore
in 24 hours is, to use a furnaoeman's
Expression, given the hose; i. e.,
tapped out and the hose turned on
it to chill and crack up the crust
and facilitate digging."
