I Lfforts Will be Concentrated
on Keeping Plant Running
In an interview with the Herald
luring the week, Mr. Haffner,
.ssistant general manager of the
Iranby Co, stated that the contraction programme of the ooni-
Ddny was rapidly drawing to a
The new storage Dam was giving
ivory satisfaction. The new
nachinery to develop hydro-elee-
orio power, which had been installed
n the No. 1. power house was
working satisfactorily. The hydro
ilectric plant was now supplying
she entire power for the company,
'ind the No. 2 power house with
ts costly oil, gas & tar burners was
jow only used for supplying heat,
o a section of the camp, thus
iffecting a great saving in fuel as
n former years No. 2 power house
>vas working to capacity during
:ie winter months.
Mr. Haifner expected that the
)ig concentrating plant would
jommeuce operations some time in
March, but that it would probably
oe a month from the time operations started until the mill was
'unning efficiently, as experiments
would have to be made.
In regard to the Outsider mine,
at Maple Bay, it was expected
that the aerial tramline would be
completed in about two weeks, and
,at it's completion shipping of ore to
Anyox would commence. The
quantity of ore shipped will average
around one hundred tons per day,
and will be shipped in barges.
Mr. Haffner stated that the
Granby Company were not contemplating any more construction
work in the near future. The
jj present policy of the oompany will
be to endeavor to keep-the big.

depression of copper prioes. No
new mining properties had lately
been bonded by the company in
the district.
Regarding the logging operations
contemplated by the Granby Com-
J pany at Alice Arm this year, Mr.
I Haffner could not say just when
operations would commence, as it
depends a great deal on weather
conditions. Mr. Meehan, who will
have oharge of operations is expected to arrive from Vancouver next
week, and will probably decide.
One of the first things, however,
would be the overhauling of the
Larcum Island saw mill.
Ice Carnival Scheduled

Anyox Moose Lodge Is
Well Established
The Local Moose Lodge at its
last Meeting presented its Members
with their first financial Statement
which viewed from every standpoint wasmostencouraging. From
a financial outlook alone it is dearly
evident that the Lodge is securely

any reasonable demands that may
be made on its Exchequer.
The Members in good standing
number 220 and with a big class of
candidates going through this week
it should not be long before the 250
mark is reached. The charter is
now closed and the fee for membership is fixed at $20. Any person
desiring to join this most excellent
organization should communicate
direct with the Secretary Box 89

will overlook the bay.
The Big Snowstorm
Anyox, has during the past week
experienced the most severe snowstorm of recent years, transportation has been extremely difficult
and it speaks volumes for the efficiency of the heads of the department, that things have been carried
through with so small delay. There
are lots,of people in Anyox, who
fail to realize the difficulties of
transportation, and it is to those
who have to overcome all this
obstacles, that these difficulties
present themselves.

posts were put into position, and
the structure is considered safe for

Alice Ann, similar to other towns
of the north is experiencing a few
weeks of quietness. But no one is
worrying as all experienced a prosperous time in the year that has
just passed, and all signs point to a
still more prosperous time during
the present year.
At the earliest approach of spring
logging operations will be in full
blast and on a much larger scale
than last year. Mining it is expeoted, will receive a big boost this
year through the operation of the
Dolly Varden, and the coming year
will find Alice Arm a hive of
industry unsurpassed by any town
ou the coast.

Slowly but surely the mineral
wealth of northern British Columbia
is being   developed.     American
and British mining companies are
now realizing   that the   country
really contains large bodies of both
high and low grade ore.     The
pioneer work done by the Granby
Co., Dolly Varden Co., Premier
Mining Co., also  Mr.   Duthie, of
Seattle who developed properties
near Smithers, is beginning to bear
fruit.    Not many years ago it was
the general impression that the ore
bodies on the northern coast did not
attain any   great depth,  but the
development work which has been
done on various properties during
the past few years has exploded this
theory.     The most   encouraging
fact regarding the  mining industry
of the north is that the big mining
companies of the world  are spending money in the development of
likely looking properties.    At the
present   time the    Stewart   and
Smithers districts are receiving the
largest amount of attention.     Both
these districts experienced somewhat of a boom twelve and fourteen
years ago, and some work and lots
of talk was done in  both camps.
The comeback of  both  camps is
due to the tenacity of the old timers
who stuck through thick and thin,
and eventually, through hard work
and perseverance, persuaded capital to come in  and  develop the
mineral   wealth that  they   were
certain   existed,  and  the   results
achieved have well rewarded their
efforts.   The Alice Arm camp lies
in the centre of this rich mineral
area, which has been described in
an American Mining magazine  as
the richest  undeveloped   mineral
area in the world.    As has been
the case of other mining camps in
the north, Alice Arm has encountered obstacles.    From all reports
obtainable from mining engineers,
geologists, etc. Alice Arm contains
some of the finest surface showings
that   can   be    found   anywhere.
Underground development work
has also proven that the ore carries
its values at depth, and the phen-
ominal richness of the Dolly Varden proved that rich ore very often
lies under the ground which does
not show on the surface. For the
past three summers everyone has
been expecting the Dolly Varden
to recommence operations and
again operate the railway, which is
the only means of communication
with the Kitsault Valley. But
why wait? why not follow the
example of our neighbors and bend
our energies in attracting capital
into the camp. If any mining
company is willing to spend money
in the development of mining properties in the Kitsault valley, and
wish to use the railway, there is no
doubt that the government would
grant their wish. If the Dolly
Varden mine is not going to be
operated in the near future, the
government should, in all fairness,
provide means of transportation up
the valley, and the least expensive
way would be to make a wagon
road of the railway grade, so that
anyone could make use of it with
wagons or motor trucks.
It is a fact worthy of our observation that for every right principle
there is always a wrong one—truth
and false, love and hate, justice and
injustioe. To sum these up, there
is a right way and a wrong way of
doing things. The right way leads
to everything that is productive of
good and harmony and happiness
The wrong principle is always productive of discord, unhappinessand
eventually destruction. Ever since
the human race has inhabited this
planet they have been working on
principle, and so is every country,
province and community down to
each individual working today for
either a wrong or right principle.
We always know when anything in
a community is not working for
good, because there is always discord. When part of a community
is out of harmony with the other
that is always sufficient evidence
that the wrong way lias been taken
of doing things, and our moral
sense of conscience aught to guide
us in a right principle.

Shifting Responsibilities
A merchant, unable to sleep, tossed fitfully on his couch and muttered untelligible words. The wife
of his bosom sought the cause of
his restlessness. In answer to her
inquiries, he said, "You expect me
to sleep when my note to Cohen in
the bank conies due tomorrow for
$5000 and Hire's only $2000 in the
bank to meet it."
"It is?" said the faithful wife,
"Then I tell you what I should do,
Ike. Yon should get up and go
over to Cohen's house and tell him.
and then come back and go to
sleep and let Cohen stay awake."

Mineral Production for
Last Year Shows Large
Over 40 per cent, increase in
mineral production in British
Columbia in two years, is the
highly gratifying report of Hon.
Wm. Sloan, minister of mines.
Despite the big production of 1922,
last year showed the big increase of
12 per oent. over 1922. The 1923
figures are all the more significant
considering the fact that they
exceeded the inflated production of
war years,
The actual monetary value of last
years production of minerals was
$39,699,753, as compared with $35,-
158,843 in 1922, an increase of $4,-
540,915. The production of 1921
had a value of $28,066,641; so that
in two years the industry has made
an advance equal to$11,633,117, or
41 per cent.
Hon. Mr. Sloan states that the
increased production of gold is most
encouraging, as was the jump in
copper. In 1923 there were 54,000,-
000 pounds of the latter metal produced, as against 32,359,000 pounds'
in 1922.
The increase in zinc production
is pointed to as most remarkable.
During the war years this metal
was produced at the rate of between
40,000,000 and 50,000,000 pounds
per annum, which was considered
most striking. However in 1923
the production was 62,000,000
pounds, an increase of 5,000,000
pounds over 1922.
The minister of mines predicts
that even greater strides will be
made in mining during 1924. Confidence has been registered in British
Columbia mining investments, the
world has come to realize that in
this province are mining properties
of untold wealth. With the labor
market stabilized and lumbering
and agriculture on a sound basis,
there is every reason to look forward to a record era of mining
development and mineral production during the next few years.
Premier Mine Has Paid
Up Capital in Full

company disburses $400,000 in dividends on January 15th. it will

While the high-grade ore in sight
has been reduced to the point where
themine'sdaysof spectacular produc

our streets and pur clubs. The key
to successful upbringing was not
eduoation alone, but education
backed up by a high moral tone in
the home.
The child is a sacred charge,
when father and mother thinking
only of their own pleasures, join
the dance or the moving picture
theatre leaving the children alone,
until such things cease there will
be no millenum such as that which
poets have written of and wise men
have prayed for. If home life today was what it ought to be,
ninety per cent, of those who now
leave the path of rectitude would
have been saved or brought back
Heaven intended that boys and
girls should be guided, and heaven
help tho boy who could not go to
his father or mother and find sympathy and understanding and
guidance there.
Touching on the influence of "environment, as well as heredity, the
speaker further stated that parents
would do well to remember the
existence of such a thing as suppressed genius possible because of
the absence of an understanding of
home influence. If the parent of
today were to gain for his child
what he desired in his herrt, he
could do so only by sacrifice, and
by standing loyally by his child.
The danger also is that the
leisure time of our boys and girls
is not being made proper use of.
The boy or girl who is not disciplined properly, who has not some
thing productive or constructive
to do in his leisure time is liable to
go completely astray. Today in
many cases the boy is selfish and
we make him so. Further, continued the speaker the teacher of
today had to understand, what he
might call the biography of the
child. The child was entitled to
every consideration at school, as
well as at home. Our education
of today was not the best we
could give pur boys and girls, and
we knew it too. Not every boy
required the same treatment. Our
education must be of such a nature
as to give young minds the opportunity of following the best of
The speaker, in conclusion, appealed for a better understanding
between the Church, the home, the
community and the school, thereby
bringing the child at length into
his own.
The lecture, which was at times,
interspersed with appropriate anecdotes and touches of sparkling
Hibernian humor, received the
rapt attention of the audience.
A vote of thanks to the lecturer
was proposed by Mr. Haslett, a
member of the 8ohool Board, seconded by Mrs. Dwyer, vice-president of the Parent-Teacher
After the lecture, Mr. Brady was
