Outlook For Alice Arm
Mining Brightest in
Years
Although we have barely entered upon the winter months, plans
are being mode for a programme of
mining activity next spring as soon
as the snow is off the ground.
Viewing the situation from an unbiased point of view it must bo admitted that next summer will witness a marked improvement in the
mining industry of the Alioe Arm
district.
Next year there will be more
properties''in operation than has
been the case for a number of
years. The Toric will undoubtedly be operating on an. enlarged
scale. The Matilda will also receive additional development work.
The La Rose will unquestionably
be digging out the high grade, as
will also the Esperanza and Wolf.
Numerous other properties will also be developed according to present plans, and in the meantime options may be taken ou some of. the
larger properties, so that development can be undertaken in the
spring.
The Devlin Zinc will without
doubt be further developed, and it
is oertain that the Keystone Mining Go. will extensively develop
the Sunset property on Roundy
Creek early next summer.
In addition to the above mentioned properties, all of which are
showing up exceptionally good under development work, it must be
remembered that the Dolly Varden and Wolf are still to be reckoned with. These properties both
possess a large amount of ore,
which will without a doubt be
mined before we are many years
older.
The mining industry of the Alioe
Arm district is showing signs of
progress.    Slower, perhaps, than
i suits everyone.    But   substantial
progress is being made, and the
r slowness perhaps may benefit the
camp a lot more than a hectic over
[ advertised boom, which blows up
; when conditions look most favor-
f able.

Mr. J. B. Haffner to
Leave Anyox on
Monday
Mr. J. B. Haffner, general superintendent for the Granby Co. at
Anyox since June 1923, to December 1st. 1925, will be leaving
here on Deoember 7th.' He has accepted a responsible position with
the American Metal Co., one of the
largest mining, smelting and refinery operators in the world, in
control of numerous plants
throughout the western hemisphere. He will take full charge
of a new property recently acquired by the American Metal Co. in
New Mexico. Lead and zinc, combined with copper, gold and silver.
The mine is not opened up at present, aud a large construction programme will have to be commenced immediately, including mine,
surface and underground plants
and equipment, concentrator,
shops, town buildings and the
various attendant installations.
Much planning is needed and
many decisions to be made, the
burden of which will rest on Mr.
Haffner and upon which will depend the measure of success obtained from the future operations
of the property.
During his stay of two and a
half years iu Anyox, Mr. Haffner
has made a large number, of
friends, by whom he is held in
great repeot. He is of a democratic nature with a free aud easy
style, which won him a place in
the hearts of all the employees of
the Granby Co. His future success in his new sphere is assured,
and everyone wishes him the best
of good luck in his new endeavours
THANKS EVERYONE
Mr. Haffner wishes to take this
opportunity iu thanking the em
ployees of the Granby Co. for
their loyal support and co-operation during his stay in Anyox, and
he regrets leaving behind so many
sincere friends.
Children's Christmas
Tree Benefits
A very pleasant evening was
spent in the Elks' Hall on Friday
November 27th., in which cards
aud dancing were enjoyed by those
present. Bridge and whist were
played. Mr. B. Hutchings won
first prize at bridge. Mrs. McLeod won ladies' first prize. Mrs.
D La very, first prize at whist, and
Mr. O. Oleson, first prize for gents.
After the cards dancing continued
until 12.30 a.m. The success of
the evening was solely due to the
officers of the Women's Auxiliary.
Mrs. A. Cameron acted as convenor and wishes to thank all who
so kindly gave their assistance.
The proceeds of this successful
event will go towards the Children's Christmas Tree.
Building at Alice Arm
Still Going On
Winter and summer, fair
weather or foul, the expansion of
the town of Alice Arm goes on.
Although the ground is now covered with over a foot of snow, buildings are still in progress of
construction.
Several buildings are at the
present time receiving substantial
additions, which shows that the
residents of Alice Arm have
unbounded faith iu the future of
the camp-
Mr. Marshall Smith is busily
engaged in adding three rooms to
his pretty little residence on Garden Island. The rooms comprise a
bedroom, kitchen and bath room,
and a large veranda is being built
in the rear.
Mr. Chas Ripley is also adding
two rooms to his bungalow on
Garden Island, which will, when
completed' make a nice commodious residence of four rooms.
Aoross the inlet at Silver City,
Chas. Hutchison is adding to the
attractiveness of his three bungalows. The buildings are used
chiefly by Anyox people as summer
residences, and it is the aim of Mr
Hutchison to make them as comfortable and attractive as possible.
Large verandas have been added
to each building, and the interiors
have been renovated. Those fortunate enough to acquire these
buildings next year for summer
camp are assured of every comfort.
J. Buntain left on Thursday on
a trip to Vancouver.
Moose Hold Successful
Card Party
Members of the Anyox Lodge
No. 1412 Loyal Order of Moose
held a very successful card party
and dance on Monday evening.
The prize winners at whist were:
ladies, Mrs. Richard Lavery, first
prize; and Mrs. R. G. Brooks, consolation prize. Winners of gentleman's prizes were: R. G. Brooks,

was greatly appreciated by all
those present.
Mr. H. Goebel was oonvenor for
this affair and was ably assisted
by Mrs. R. J. Russell and Mrs. F.
Cross. Dancing continued until
1 a. in.
Leaving Anyox  After
Thirteen Years
Service
Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Wing, are
leaving Anyox next Thursday, and
their departure further reduces the
ranks of the residents of Anyox
who were in camp during construction days.
Mr. Wing came to Anyox 13£
years ago, at the time when the
timber stood clear to the water
front and everything was green
and sweet. Those were the days
when a lot of planning was necessary, and Mr. Wing was instrumental to a large degree in
moulding the efficient organization
possessed by the Granby Co. at the
present time.
Mrs. Wing followed her husband a few months after his arrival
and has resided longer in Anyox
than any other woman.
During his stay' in Anyox Mr.
Wing has constantly improved his
position and during the past few
years has held the position of
Superintendent of Housing and
Community Facilities. He believed in efficiency both on and off the
job, aud he tilled a somewhat difficult position,—with new problems
to be solved every day— iu a
creditable manner.
Both Mr. and Mrs. Wing have a
host of friends in Anyox who are
sorry to see them depart.
They will spend Christmas with
Mrs. Wing's parents near Tacoma,
Washington, and later may return
to British Columbia.
California Man Succeeds
Mr. Haffner
Mr W. R. Lindsay of Engel-
tnine, California, has been appointed general superintendent of the
Granby Co. at Anyox. He succeeds Mr. J. B. Haffner, who has
resigned to become general manager with the American Metal Co.
in New Mexico. The new general
superintendent is a graduate of the
University of Washington, and
has had charge of extensive mining operations in Alaska.
Christmas Pageant For
Anyox Union Church
Rev. C, D. Clarke of the United
Church of Canada at Anyox is
forming a Christmas Pageant call-
the "Eastern Star," and he is anticipating putting this on before
Christmas. A choir has also been
formed and Mr. W. R. Murdoch
has been appointed choirmaster.

A few weeks ago we pointed
out in these columns the fact that
one of the chief causes of trade
depression was that the people of
Canada do not think nationally.
Each district strives for its own
gain, irrespective of any injury it
may cause the inhabitants of another part of the Dominion. A
week or so ago, at a meeting in
Winnipeg of the Boards of Trade
from western cities, one of the
speakers stressed on the harm this
policy was doing the country, and
urged that in order for the Dominion to obtain permanent prosperity it was necessary for everyone to discard thinking parochially
and broaden their vision. If we
hope1 to rapidly increase our population we can not build up artificial
channels of trade, but must let
trade flow through natural channels. The Panama Canal has
made Vancouver the distributing
point for a large part of the prairie.
Winnipeg held this territory for a
long time, and she is striving hard
to retain it by artificial means,
which policy is suicidal for western Canada.

Deisel Engines to be Used
For Logging
Diesel engines will be brought
into use in the logging camps of
the Pacific coast next year, if recommendations before the Pacific
Logging congress, held recently at
Seattle, are adopted. The increasing remoteness of the timber
regions and the prohibitive cost of
wood and gasoline make it necessary, it is said, to find some other
form of power.

expected to be both interesting and
useful especially to those whose
business or pleasure takes them into places where minerals may be

John Devlin Passes
Away in Vancouver
||: ■ Mr. John Devlin, well known
mining man of Alioe Arm, died at
the Vancouver Hospital, on Tuesday December 1st,
Mr. Devlin left Alice Arm in
company with his wife about two
months ago. and was planning to
return early in the spring, and the
news of his sudden death will
come as a distinct surprise to his
many friends in Alice Arm.
Deceased came to Alice Ann
early in the spring and was a (inn
believer that the oamp would develop into a big producer. He
purchased some mineral claims on
the north-east fork of the Kitsault
river, and grouped them with Ids
own claims, naming the property
the Devlin Zinc. He interested
capital and a tunnel 100 feet in
length was driven.
The late Mr. Devlin was one of
the most picturesque figures of the
mining fraternity in the province.
He has followed mining practically
all his life. He has make fortunes,
spent them and made others, and
it was his (inn belief that Alice
Arm would not fail him. He had
travelled extensively and knew a
good mining property when he
saw one. He was alive to the
value of publicity for a mining
property or a camp and was an asset to any mining camp.

cigar store, which is in the business
section of the town, The fire
started from an overheated stove
and one wall and ceiling was partly burnt. The stock was undamaged.
