Granby Consolidated Mining,
Smelting & Power Co. operating,
copper mines in British Columbia,
for the first time in eight years is
out of debt to the banks, says the
recent annual report. Current
assets exoeed current liabilities by
$2,369,189.87. The net profit for
1925 of $1,107,234.77, compared
with $832,391.93 for 1924, is equivalent to $3.21 per share on the capital stock outstanding. These
comparative earnings are after deducting all operating and interest
charges, but before reserves for depreciation and depletion, involving
no cash outlay. Work contemplated during the current year involves a gradual enlargement of the
Anyox concentrator to a capacity
approximating 2,750 tons per day,
thereby making available additional ore tonnages not suitable for
direct smelting operations, which
will be correspondingly curtailed
as increased milling facilities are
made available. The existing sintering plant will also be revamped
and somewhat enlarged to permit
home, smelting of concentrates now
sent to custom smelters for treatment.
The following data are from the
report of Charles Bocking, general
manager:

Elks' Ball Team
Heavily in Mine
Game
The Elks lost their second start
ou Thursday evening last, when
the Miners took them into camp
by a ten to one count. The Ant-
lered Herd were never in the pioture, seven misoues and lots of hits
accounted for the large score. Orr
pitched a nice game for the winners
letting tho opposition down with
four scattered hits. He was also
accorded bang up support by his
teammates. McLellan started on
the mound for the Elks but was
forced to retire in the fifth in favor
of Fred Brown, who had tbe opposition eating out of his hand for
the two innings he worked. Wen-
del was the big man with the stick
getting three hits out of four trips
to the plate.

Beach Footballers Win
Their First Game
The Beach football eleven turned
in their first win of the season on
Tuesday evening when they defeated the Mine one goal to nil. The
winners came out with a much improved line-up and played a fine
game throughout. MoColl notched
the only goal of the match on a
shot from close in which glanced in
oif a Mine baok giving the goalie
no chance to save. Nesbit, last
year with the Miners returned
from the south bringing a new
centre-forward with him, who
turned in a tine game for the losers
and should prove a valuable acquisition to them before the season is
far advanced.
Teams were:
Mine: Evans, Stoltz, Victor,
Jones, Waller, Parker, Dearlove,
Cane,

Smelter Defeats Beach 4-1
Before Large Crowd
Quite a large crowd of football
supporters saw the Smelter defeat
the Beach boys four goals to one on
Friday evening the 28th. But the
score rather Hatters the league
leaders as the boys from tlie Beaoh
played their best game so far this
season. In the first half, the winners counted twice through S.
Kirkland and Buntain;on resuming
Ellison opened for the Beach with
a low shot which Hill got his hands
to but could not hold. After this
success the Beach played up
strongly, but a great solo run by
Buntain gave the Smelter their
third goal and before the end Buntain from close iu slipped the ball
past Hunter for the final tally,
Baker Robertson handled the
whistle.
Preliminary Work Being
Done on Mining Claims
Everything is now ready at the
Eagle property, for active development work. A large cabin has
been constructed and the trail has
been completed by A. McGuire.
G. W. Morris of Vancouver who
has a bond on the property is expected to shortly arrive from the
south accompanied by a mining engineer. The first work to be undertaken will be the surveying of the
olaims, which are situated near the
LaRose mine.
A trail on the Silver Cord to
connect with the government trail
on the north-east fork of the Kitsault river is now under construction bv A. MoGuire and a cabin
will also be built. The trail on
the LeRoy will also be improved so
that pack horses oan be taken in.
Mr. Morris has also bonded these
two properties, which are on the
north-east  fork  of  the  Kitsault

Elect Own Bishop
The first session of the Anglican
Synod held in Prince Rupert
on May 28th deleted canon six,
which provided for-the nomination
of the Bishop by outside sources
and substituted for it a paragraph
vesting the right of election in the
synod of the diocese. The sum of
$30,000 have been collected toward
the endowment fund, which would
have to reach |100,000 before the
final election of the Bishop could
take place.
The diocese of Caledonia is one
of the largest in Canada, and it is
felt that the need of a Bishop to
administer the constituency is of
utmost importance.
It takes in the whole of Northern
British Columbia including Peace
River, aud Atlin and Cassiar, as
well as several outlying places
along the line of the Canadian
National Railways.
The policing of Prince Rupert is
under the supervision of the Provincial Police Department. The

Boy Scouts Raising Fund
for  Big Summer
Camp
In aid of their Holiday Fund, the
Anyox No. 2 troop of Boy Scouts
put on a very successful concert in
the Recreation Hall on Friday
evening last May 28th.
This fund is being raised by the
soouts in order to pay their fare to
the camp of the Vancouver Scouts
which is situated iu the district of
Roberts Creek and is an ideal place
for a scouts' camp. The scouts
from Anyox will fraternize with
about 500 or 600 scouts from Vancouver and the surrounding districts, and this will be to them a
wonderful experience in scouting
and a veritable treasure chest of
learning in the arts which make
towards the development of true
manliness.
For this purpose about $400 is
required and the boys are trying to
raise this sum by means of displays,
ooncerts and other activities and
have high hopes of being able to
raise it in time for camp in August.
The programme of the concert
held last Friday consisted of displays of morse and semaphore,
signalling, first aid and a humorous
sketch entitled "Bloodless Surgery"
by the scouts; humourous songs
by Sarnie Tamson and Mr. I. W.
Leake; Recitations by scout
Barclay; songs by the scoutmaster
and a piano solo by Dr. Davies.
The accompaniments were in tho
capable hands of Miss Leitch and
Dr. Davies.

Spectacular Plays Mark
Inter-Town Ball
Game
The beautiful weather prevailing
last Sunday again enticed a number of Anyox residents to sample
the salubrious climate at Alice
Arm. Quite a large number took
advantage of the opportunity of
wandering among the luxurious
greenery at Alice Arm.
A challenge was issued by the
visitors to the local ball tossers for
another game of baseball", which
was    promptly    accepted.      For
short time it was doubtful if
Alice Arm would find enough talent to field a team, but the conscripting of some novices solved the
problem. The local team also enlisted the services of Fred Brown
who kindly consented to help the
boys out of a difficulty. *
Although handicapped by the
absence of a number of regular
players, Alice Arm managed to
come out on top of a 9-6 score after
a highly exciting game, in which
all three pitchers were freely hit.
Spectacular plays were made by
Art Beaudin, who on third base
was busy picking the high ones out
of the air, as easy as picking apples
from a tree; Fred Brown, who
drove the pill into the briny ocean
for a home run; Harry Chapman,
who retrieved it; Chris Cane, who
pitched it and—	
All in all it was a good game.
The players enjoyed it, the fans got
their money's worth (nil) and every
one was happy.
Alice Arm undoubtedly got most
of the breaks and were lucky to
win.
W. Smith was the umpire and
was good.

LaRose High Grade Ore
Rich and Consistent
Some of the best.ore ever encountered at the LaRose mine is
now being developed iu the raise
which is nearing completion. The
ore is composed of silver sulphides
and is impregnated with wire silver.
The ore vein extends the full width
of the raise, and the width of the
high grade is from 12 to 14 inches.
Some splendid ore samples havo
recently been brought to town.
Only ten more feet remains to be
driven to put the raise through to
the surface. With its completion,
ventilation at the mine will be considerably improved.

The provincial mineral production for 1925 of $61,492,242 exceeds the hope of even the most
optimistic. During the past few
years the mineral output has steadily increased, and the outlook for
the future indicates that production will continue to increase.
Copper, silver lead and zinc, our
four principle minerals are demanding a price that encourages ore
extraction, and present price levels
will undoubtedly be maintained,
with a probability that prices will
increase. One of the chief reasons
for increased production is the
publicity programme formulated
and fostered by Hon. Wm. Sloan,
minister of mines. He is a firm
believer in publicity and has encouraged it throughout the province.
He has given encouragement to
the B. C. Chamber of Mines, and
assisted them in many ways in
carrying out their publicity programme. Branches of the Chamber of Mines have been formed
throughout the province, until at
the present time, every mining district supports a live branch, who
work in connection with the local
Board of Trade, Citizens' League,
or whatever organization is operating
for the public welfare. Those
districts who have, during the past
few years prosecuted a steady
publicity programme are now basking in the limelight, and the big
mining companies are coming in
Convention for Conservatives
At a meeting of the Conservative
Association executive recently it
was decided to call a party conven
tion at the earliest possible date
when the leadership of the party
and the adoption of a legislative
programme will be the subjeot of
discussion. Hon W. J. Bowser
and B. H. Pooley were among those
present.
It is expected the convention will
be summoned as soon as the House
of Commons adjourns and permits
the Federal members to be present.
South Africa Leads World in
Gold Production
How important the Rand still is
may well be brought out by a
glance at the latest production figures from South Africa. A new
record was established in March,
when the Transvaal output
amounted to 834,340 oz. of gold,
valued at £3,554,000. This is at
the rate of 10,000,000 oz. a year,
worth $207,000,000. Compare this
with the Porcupine and Kirkland
Lake production last year—1,450-
000 oz. worth $30,000,000, or only
about one-seventh as much as the
Rand output.
and taking over mining properties,
from the small operators. Perha
the most vivid illustration in this
respect is the town of Stewart.
Others in the north are Smithers
and Atlin, while in the south they
are numbered in scores. In the
east the Porcupine and Red Lake
districts in Ontario and Rouyen in
Quebec are telling the world about
their mineral resources. Practically
all big camps have started from
small beginnings. First the prospector; then the small mining companies, and then the million-dollar-
operators. A sit and wait policy
is suicide for a camp unless it
wishes to die.

I Detroit Men in Control
of Independence Mine
A development programme involving the expenditure of $125,000
is laid out by the new owners of
the Independence Gold Mines,
adjoining the Premier in the Portland Canal distriot following a
transfer of control of the mine to
a financial group with headquarters at Detroit and Portland, headed
by Charles Bush, consulting engineer, and J. Taylor his partner. The
announcement of the change of control was made following the arrival
in Victoria of Sam Fitzgerald, manager of the Independence.
As a result of the deal, the Victoria directors of the company during the early development will be
eliminated although the headquarters of the company will remain for
the present at Victoria.
Mr. Bush is going north with
Fitzgerald as consulting engineer,
for the property. The object of the
now owners is to put the mine on
a shipping and dividend paying
basis at as early a date as possible.
The Independence Gold Mining
Company was incorporated early in
the year 1924 for $1,500,000 for the
purpose of taking over six claims
on Goose Creek owned by Fitzgerald brothers of Stewart. Considerable development work has been
I done on it and some buildings
erected. A compressor is on the
ground and has been used in the
work.
Enormous Increase of
Provincial Mineral
Production
Ieucharistic CONGRESS
.CHICAGO, JUNE, 1926
PThe Greatest Event in the
History of the Catholic
Church in America
|C. N. Rys. To Operate Special
Trains From Western Canada
Of unusual importance to Roman
Catholics is the 28th International
Eucharistic Congress in Chicago, 111.,
[June 20th to 24th next.
The Church dignitaries are duly
appreciative of the efforts made by the
(Jw.iadian National Railways, who
have arranged to operate special
trains to and from the Congress, and
■have also made reservations for sever-
Bil hundred people in good hotels at a
treasonable expense, and ask their
people to make application promptly
British Columbia's mineral production for the year 1925 is valued
officially at $61,492,242. In 1924
the total value was $48,794,604.
This means that there was an increase of $12,787,638, which incidentally, works out at 26.2 per
cent—a notable record.
When production values just
tipped the $40,000,000 mark in
1916 the peak year of the war as
far as mineral supplies from this
province were concerned, the total
was regarded as one that it would
take a long time to pass. That
was the year of highest prices ever
paid and the sum received was no
indication whatever of volume production. But as soon as the count;
ry returned to a peaceful basis
new development took plrce and
normal prices returned. What
amount of work has been done in
the last few years is reflected in
the value of the output for 1924 and
1925, the most pleasing feature
being the enormous comparative
increase during the latter year over
the former and, still more so, when
values are taken into full consideration, over the great year of 1916.
The final report for 1925 which
has just.been published is an excellent form of advertising for British
Columbia. It assures the outside
investor that there ia plenty of
opportunity for his money to work
with the prospect of good returns
here.
