Past   Year   Was
Prosperous for
District
Mineral   Output   Greatest   in
History, and Future Never
Was Brighter
A review of tlie mining industry
of the Alice Arm and Anyox distriot for the past year shows that,
substantial progress has been made
and a peep'into the future convinces that during the coming year
still further progress and bigger
gains will be made.
During the past year-more mining and development work has been
oarried on iu the Alioe Arm
district than has been the
oase for the past six years.
More mining engineers have visited
the oamp, and more mining properties bonded. Valuable information
has been gained-of the ore bodies
of several properties, which will
be instrumental in increasing work
on these properties and in the bonding and working of adjacent claims.
A diversity of ores exist in the
district and during the past year,
properties containing lead, zinc,
silver and oopper have been, developed. Every property developed
Has given encouragement, and further programmes of work have
been outlined for the coming year.
. The LaRose mine was operated
almost the entire year, and a substantial shipment of high grade
silver ore made late in the season.
A large quantity of this high grade
is known to exist in the mine, and

At six o'clock supper was served
in tlie Church Hall and one hundred happy children partook of the
good things provided for this oocas-
sion.
At 7. p. m. in the Church a short
programme was given by the
ohildren. Recitations by May
Barclay, Dora Peterson, Audrey
McMillan, Maisie Evans; Virginia
McMillan, Catherine Peterson and
Peggy Arscott.
A duet was rendered by Edna

and lesson study;
Thomas Crone, Jim Smith and
Bessie Smith received certificates
operations are expeoted to be re-t|trbr having completed the primary
sumed at an early date.
Work at the Torio mine was
carried on throughout the year.
This was composed chiefly of outside work, such as constructing mill
! buildings, and getting in machinery
[ The Torio possesses an enormous
I body of silver ore, and   at   the
^present time this is being further
[developed.
The Keystone Mining Co. spent
'several mouths developing the
'Keystoue on Roundy Creek. The
ore oarries lead and silver. Efficient management resulted in a
large amount of work being accomplished, and at the close of operations late in the fall', the prospects
<Jf the property being shortly developed into a producer were exceed
ingly bright. .
The Kitsault-Eagle Silver Mines
(Ltd. of Vancouver developed three
properties during the year, namely
Hospital Christmas Tree
Greatly Appreciated
On Friday, the 24th the annual
Christmas Tree for the patients
of the Anyox Hospital was held
under the auspices of the Ladies'
Hospital Auxiliary.
On this occasion, Santa Claus, in
the person of Dr. H. S. Trefry,
appeared from the far north and
presented each patient and member
of the staff with a gift.
Santa Claus this year had put on
an exceptional amount of avoirdupois since his last visit,' and it seems
as though the poor fellow is ageing
fast.
On three different occasions during the Christmas season some of
the residents of Anyox have been
kind enough to entertain the patients with songs and instrumental
music; This thoughtfulness is fully
appreciated by the Hospital staff,
and if those who helped to bring a
few hour's enjoyment could only
hear the words of appreciation
from those they helped to cheer,
we are sure that these entertainments would be provided more
often.
ALICE ARM NOTES
Christmas Pageant At
United Church
The Christmas Service on Sunday night, December 26th. at
7.45 p. m. held in the United
Church was most attractive and
inspiring.' The Christmas Message
was presented by a pageant, "The
Eternal Quest.'" The theme of
this dramatic service was that the
highest life is an eternal quest for
a better way, and of each of the
episodes portrayed the quest for
this better life.
The cast of the characters was
as follows: Prophet, Mr. D. Campbell; Mary, Mrs. Coffin; Joseph,
Edward Clay; Shepherds, John
Gillis, Walter Asimus and'Frank
Kent; Spirit of the Quest, Mrs.
Manzer; Spirit of Youth,.Stewart

married friends when the Gobbler
was placed on the table,
The prevailing mild weather
and rain of the past week have
caused a cessation of winter sports
at the Skating Rink. Until Sunday afternoon good skating was

The old year has gone by, and
we are all ready to take what
1927 gives us. Old 1926 was
pretty good to almost everyone in
Anyox and Alice Arm. Prosperity has been our lot, and hardships
and extreme poverty is unknown
in this corner of the world we call
home. The past year has been
one of the most prosperous for the
mining industry the district has
ever known. The big copper
producing plant of the Granby Co.
has operated continuosly, giving
employment to about 1000 men.
Operations have Been more successful than during the past previous years, which is a source of
pride to both the company and
everyone on the payroll. Successful operation of a business makes
everyone happy, for it means a
continuity of operation of the plant
instead of a shut-down which ultimately ensues when a deficit is
registered.
Although Alice Arm did not
experience any gigantic mining
boom, good steady progress was
made in 1926. What was accomplished during the past twelve
months will lay the foundation of
increased prosperity. A hard
rock mining camp is not born in a
day or a year, but slowly and
surely each successive year the outlook is brighter.
The future of this great mining
district which embraces the biggest
copper producing plant in the Empire is full of promise, and we wish
all our readers a full measure of joy
and prosperity for the coming year,
and may they enjoy many more
pleasant years in this favored
district.
Ontario Legislature to Meet
in February
The Ontario Legislature will be
opened on February 2nd. Premier
Ferguson announced. The chief
business of the session will probably
be legislation to put into force the
sale of liquor under government
control which was endorsed by the
electorate in the recent provincial
election.
If you are satisfied to remain
poor the world will see that you do
it.
B. C. Again Leads in
Silver Production
That the palm for, silver production in Canada goes to British Columbia is the declaration of J. A.
McRae, writing in Toronto Saturday Night.    He says:
"The glory that once belonged to
Cobalt is on the wane. The laurels
which go with leadership now
passes to the Pacific Coast. The
mines of Northern Ontario are now
producing less than are the mines of
British Columbia. Those who have
known Cobalt throughout all its
days, and more particularly those
who are familiar with the massive
bodies of native silver in the veins
of that world-famous camp, are
likely to find it difficult to realize
that old age has crept across the
path of Cobalt.
"Nevertheless indications point
to an output this year of not more
than 9,500,000 ounces of silver from
Northern Ontario, with a production
of at least 10,500,000 from British
Columbia.
"Individual comparison of output from the mines is given in favor
of British Columbia. While Nipis
sing and Mining Corporation of
Canada struggles to maintain output
at 2,000,000 ounces a year, it is
evident that the Sullivan mine in
British Columbia will produce over
4,000,000 ounces this year, with
3,000,000 ounces more from the
Premier mine. Even the Mayo
district in the Yukon has a mine,
the Treadwell Yukon Company,
which this year will produce about
2,700,000 ounces of silver."

Enormous Production of
Gold in Last 64
Years
The estimated value of the gold
produced in the world from 1860 to
1924, inclusive, was$15,081,683,600
states J. P. Dunlop in a report recently issue&by the United States
Bureau of Mines, Department of
Commerce.
In 1924 the estimated production
of the world was $389,169,700, an
increase of $21,316,30 over that of
1923. This increase followed a
period of successive annual, decreases from 1915 to 1922, an increase of $48,433 in 1923.
Granby's Gold
Debentures
"An abrupt advance of 10^
points, to 141, for 7 per cent, gold
debentures of the Granby Consolidated Mining' Smelting & Power
Company, Ltd., furnished a spectacle of a bond sailing 25 points
above the price at which it is redeemable at any time," says the
New York Times. "The explanation lay in a conversion privilege
which has become unusually valuable with a , recent advance in the
price of the company's, stock. The
debentures: have covered a wide
price range this year, following the
stock. They are callable on 30
days'notice at 105, but holders at
any time may convert them into
, capital stock of the company at $25
a share. The stock is quoted at
35jf£, a record for the year and a
net advance of 28^4 points. This
stock has   sold as   low as   16^s
' this year and the' debentures as low
as 100."
Mining Shaft at Butte Will
Be Sunk 5000 Feet
The Anaconda Copper Mining
Co. has shut down its Mountain
Con mine at Butte for six
nionths, in order to retimber the
shaft and to install the .new large
electric hoist, so that the shaft may
be sunk to 5,000 ft. The Mountain
view mine, which has been shut
down for some time, has resumed
operations, and practically the
entire crew of the Mountain Con
consisting of 800 men, will work
in tlie Mountain View, and production will not be effected. This
work is part of the project initiated
more than a year ago for the deeper exploitation of the remarkable
deposits in Anaconda hill—the
"richest hill on earth."

Government May Sell Beer
By Glass
The Victoria Times says: "The
sale of beer by the glass in Government establishments  instead of in
privately owned beer parlors is to
be one of the proposals discussed in
the present session of the  Legislature when the entire  liquor adminis-
' tration of the province will be under
| rigid review. • This plan is widely
i favored as a means of taking beer
^altogether out of politics."

CT*HE wholesome beers made for
the people of British Columbia
by the Amalgamated Brewer.es are

and full flavored beverage that is
PURE BEER.
All beers made by the Amalga'
mated Brewers of B:C. are fully
fermented and aged for months
before they reach the public.
They will not continue to ferment

Past   Year    Was
Prosperous for
District
Continued from Page 1
on the Matilda.   The result of this
work gave much valuable information, regarding the big ore deposits
that exist on this property.
Early in October, four mining
properties situated in the upper
Kitsault country were bonded by
Col. Victor Spencer and associates
of Vancouver. The total number
of claims bonded were fifteen and
two fractions, and the bonding
prioe was in the neighborhood of
$400,000. It was at first planned
to drive a development tunnel on
both the Vanguard and Red Point,
but owing to the lateness of the
season, the Vanguard project was
dropped. A tunnel, to be at least
500 feet in length was commenced
on the Red Point, and this work
' will be carried on throughout the
winter with all possible speed. As
early as possible in the iiew year
the other three properties will be
developed on au extensive scale,
which alone will give considerable
impetus to the mining industry of
the district.
In addition to the above mentioned properties, a large amount
of development work was done by
individual owners with excellent
results. PVom a mining engineer's
standpoint regarding ore showings,
both surface and underground, the
district never was better.
Alice Arm possesses enormous
ore showings, which have not deter-
iated when tapped at depth, and
when further depth is attained the
camp will rank among the continent's big producers.
The past year has been successful in increasing the ore reserves,
and the future will undoubtedly
witness the same procedure on' a
much larger scale.
Good fortune also smiled on
Anyox during the past year, and
the big copper producing plant of
the Empire not only increased their
output considerably but also substantially reduced their operating
costs. During the first nine months
of theyear Anyox produoed 29,291,-
890 pounds of copper, beside gold
and silver values. This output
shatters all records and give an idea
of what can be accomplished when
a mining company has ample funds

for development and construction
as did the Granby Co. when they
bonded the Hidden Creek mine.
During the year the concentrating mill and sintering plant were
considerably enlarged. Further
development work was also undertaken on the Bonanza property,
which may be operated during the
coming year.
Enlarged capacity of the concentrating mill and sintering plant will
increase the 1927 output, and the
operation and further development
of the Bonanza will undoubtedly
add considerably to the orereserves
of the Granby Co.
The coming year is full of hope
for the people of Anyox and the
Granby Co. and present prospects
indicate that the wheels of (industry
will be turning in Anyox for a good
many years to come.
