Toric Makes 2nd. Shipment
1000 Sacks Concentrates
One thousand sacks of concentrates from the Toric mine were
shipped south on the Steamship
Catala on Monday. The shipment
is destined for Selby smelter, California. The shipment of a few
weeks ago was made to Tacoma,
but owing to an increased amount
of lead in the concentrates it has
been decided to treat the concentrates at Selby.
The mill is now producing about
30 sacks a day and daily shipments
are arriving at the government wharf. • Another shipment will be made in about three
weeks to the smelter. The tonnage
handled by the mill is being gradually increased, but no large increase of tonnage will be possible
until the new power unit is installed
which will be next year.
Preparations are being made to
conduct operations through the
winter, and supplies of all kinds,
including crude oil for power purposes are being taken in.
As soon as the heavy snowfall
eliminates transportation' over the
railway, communications will be
kept open by sleighs. Spring Camp
situated at 9-mile has been remodelled for winter use, and will be used
as a half way house.
At the mine,  everything is run
ning smoothly. The new cook
house and dining room is com
pleted and will be occupied next
week. The building measures 24
ft.x45 ft. and is up to date in every
respect. A feature being the new
kitchen range which uses crude oil
for fuel.
Ore for the mill is being taken
from two stopes, and is of a good

Pretty Anyox Wedding
Solemnized On
A pretty wedding was solemnized
at the Anyox Roman Catholic
Church on Monday, October 8th. at
8.30 a.m.. when Miss Ruth Gordon
and Mr. Donald McLeod were
united in matrimony, Rev. Father
Champagne officiating. The bride,
who was given in marriage by her
father, Mr. Peter Gordon, wore a
beige colored gown of crepe back
satin with hat and stockings to
match and black pumps. Her
bridal bouquet was of carnations.
Her bridesmaid, Miss Teresa Gordon, was attired in a buff colored
dress of printed silk with blond
stockings and slippers. She wore
a navy blue hat and carried a bouquet of chrysanthemums. Mr. J.L.
Stewart supported the groom.
After the ceremony breakfast was
served to a number of guests at the
home of the bride's father where a
charming decoration scheme in
green and white had been effected.
Mrs. W. F. Eve assisted in serving
and Miss Anne McLachlan played
the piano. The groom's mother
was a visitor from Calgary for the

Charges Made By The
Community League for
Renting Gym.
The A. C. L. Council has fixed
the rental charge for the gymnasium
at $30 when all services are furnish,
ed for the lessee. For those organizations who can and wil
furnish workers to clean up after
wards the charge will be $15,
Deficiencies in cleaning up and any
damage done will be charged for..
The gymnasium has already been
engaged for Friday, October 26, by
the High School Club and for the
Armistice Day Dance on November
12th. by the Canadian Legion. In
view of fire risks decoration in the
gym will be reduced to the minimum
which should gladden the hearts of
decoration committees. Paper is
prohibited and bunting of non-inflammable material will be restricted
to the front of the spectator's gallery. The Council has taken this
stand upon advice that stringent
regulation of dance hall decorations
will come up for discussion at the
next session of the Provincial
Debate Has Been Postponed
The debate on the merits of
liquor control which was scheduled
for Friday night will take place at
a later date. It has been requested
that publicity be given to the fact
that the Anyox Debating Society is
promoted largely by the local Elks'
New Gymnasium Caretaker
Grey Russell has been confirmed
in his appointment as caretaker of
the gymnasium. He will live on
the premises and receive a salary to
which he is permitted to add by
renting lockers and towels and selling refreshments.
Record Number Attend
Opening of New
Over 500 Sat Down to
A record-breaking crowd flowed
into the new gymnasium for the
opening dance on Monday. Over
five hundred guests sat down to
supper in the commodious attractive dining-hall. Between dances
many thronged the lounge room
downstairs where soda water,
candy, and tobacco was available
or where tired feet could rest during a session of cards.
The dancing floor exceeds all
expectations. It was obvious that
everyone was delighted with its
size aud surface. Not for some time
is it likely that a dance crowd will
be so large and enthusiastic. The
Arcadians Orchestra caught the
spirit and  surpassed   themselves.
The dancers were in their best
clothes and on tlieir best behaviour.
Anyox was trying to live up
to the class of its new building.
Speeches by Mr. O. G. Macintyre, A. C. L. Council Chairman,
and Mr. W. R. Lindsay, General
Superintendent emphasised the
League's achievement. Mr. Macintyre dwelt upon the debt of
gratitude which the league owes
to the men whose thought and
efforts made possible the erection
of the "best gymnasium in B. C."
outside of the metropolitan areas.
Mr. Lindsay exhorted the members
of the league to treat the building
with the care which such an excellent structure deserves.
A dancing competition for both
old and new styles of waltzing
resulted in handsome prizes being
given to Miss McGuire and Mr.
Joe Taylor for the "old" style, and
to Mr. aud Mrs. J. Tierney for the
"new brand". At the same time
the prizes won by the baseballers
this summer were presented.
After this ceremony the dance
was continued until 2.30 a.m.
Great credit is due to the Councillors and their wives who ably
supervised all arrangements, also
thanks are due for all those who
assisted in many ways to make the
evening such a success. The Power Department is also to be
credited with straining every effort
to get things usable despite non
arrival of equipment.
President Macintyre Speaks
On League Activities
An inspiring speech was made
by President O. G. Macintyre of
the Anyox Community League, at
the opening of the League's gymnasium on Monday evening. He
exhorted his hearers to support the
League and gave excellent reasons
for so doing. Following is the
Ladies and Gentlemen: This
occasion will long remain as one of
the most pleasantest moments in
my life, due to the part that the
Council of the Anyox Community
League and myself, have had in
giving to the people, and especially
the children of Anyox, the finest
building of its kind north of Vancouver.
I have been a resident of Anyox
for nine years, and during this
time I have come to fully realize
the things we have to do without,
due to our isolated location. But
rather than this being an excuse to
sit down and bemoan the fact, it
appears to me to be a challenge to
every one of us to make a combined effort to make Anyox a better
place to live.
One effort in this direction which
is worth mentioning, is the number of little gardens which appeared in Anyox last year, and I guess
there   were lots   of   people   like
myself who stopped and drank in
the fragrance of these little beauty
But it is not possible for us all to
make gardens, however, we can all
support the organization which is
making an effort to make Anyox a
more enjoyable place to live in.
We have at the present time a
little over 66 per cent, of the Beach
payroll, but that is not enough.
We want a 100 per cent, and with
the support of the people we can
have lots of things such as this

Wages Anyox Increased
Ten Per Cent
Following the rise in the price of
copper the Granby Company has
raised the wages of employees ten
per cent to be effective October 1st.
The condition of the copper market
and the rising prices of copper mining stock on the exchanges indicate
that the wage-earners will enjoy
this increase for a good many
months. Employees of the Community League, according to the
agreement, receive a similar increment.
Badminton Club Retain
Fee Of $4.00 Per
In view of criticisms that a
"clique" was trying to make badminton an exclusive sport by charging a high fee, the A. C. L.
Council held a conference with the
Badininton Club officials and their
foremost critics from which the
Cub emerged victorious but only
after a long argument.
President Stewart demonstrated
that there was no extravagance in
the use of shuttles as the damaged
shuttle had to be turned in before
a new one was issued. The complaint that some members spent
more time on the courts than others evoked spirited discussion.
The statement was made that
this complaint is heard with re
gard to the other activities of the
league and is often made by those
who do not exert themselves to
take advantage of their opportu
nities. The fee remains at four
dollars and all interested are asked
to sign up at once. Two nights a
week in the gymnasium are guaranteed.

Former Resident of Anyox
Killed In Auto Accident
Those of our readers who have
been residents of Anyox for a number of years and who remember
Mr. and lues. W. A. Cooper when
they were residing here will learn
with regret that Mr. Cooper died
recently at Longview, Washington
The result of his death was due to
an auto accident.
It appears that Mr. Cooper was
driving his car, accompanied by his
wife, when he was struck broadside by another car going at a
tremendous speed. Both suffered
injuries, Mr. Cooper passed away
without regaining consciousness.
Mr. George Cooper, a son, also
a former resident of Anyox, now

Marmot Metals Co. Now
Control 40 Claims
At Stewart
Stewart News
The News has it from an auth-
orative source that the work this
summer on the Marmot Metals
disclosed a very interesting situation, but one that will, owing to
its very nature, take a great deal
of money to prove up. This conclusion having been reached after
very close and careful consideration by the company's engineers,
Messers. Stewart & Batten, work
was closed down for the winter
early in the month, as little more
could effectively be accomplished
this year.
During the season two shear
zones were located, more or less
paralleling each other, toward one
of which was located a high-grade
fracture, similar, at least in some
respects, to the Montana and
Peach veins, striking from out of
the Sunlight and Fountain claims
toward the first zone, the intersection not yet having been definitely determined, but somewhere
on the face of the Horseshoe, or
south end of the property. The
work planned for the future will
be to trace this and other possible
fractures carrying high grade solutions, into either or both of the
mentioned shears, which experience of the district teaches is the
typical geological condition for the
deposition of commercial ores.
About midsummer the company
acquired an option on reasonable
terms on the holdings and entire
treasury of the Glacier Girl Co.,
situated still further to the north
and east adjoining the south
boundary of the Dominion property
on the north fork of Marmot river.
With this option, which is effective
till the end of November, 1929, the
Marmot Metals owns and controls
some 40 claims and fractions, extending from the head of the south
fork of Marmot river to the head of
the north fork. On the south end
of the property one can look up

Canadian Banks Financing
Big Grain Crop
S. H. Logan, general manager of
the Canadian Bank of Commerce
stated at Toronto, that the preparations of the banks for financing
the western crop this year have
been on a larger scale than ever
before, in order to provide for
bringing the crop to market at the
proper time and to ensure that the
farmers are paid promptly.
"If the present promise of 500>
000,000 bushels of wheat is fulfilled the banks will be called upon to
finance to an extent of between
forty and fifty million dollars more
than last season," Mr. Logan said.
Repeal of the Alaska bone dry

lund and Marmot Gold properties,
and on the north end across the
valley to the Porter Idaho Prosperity. Thus the Marmot Metals Co.
has a complete cross section of the
contact that in light of recent developments is attracting so much attention from geologists and engineers, and on which are numerous
showings and from a geological
standpoint offers great possibilities.
In other words, the ground now
owned and controlled in practically
a complete block, extends from the
granites for a matter of something
better than three miles into the
tuffs, has been located the same
breccia as are found on the Prosperity and Porter Idaho Hill.

Addressing the Board of Trade of
Vancouver, recently. E. W. Beatty,
Chairman and President of the Canadian Pacific Railway, stated that
present prosperity In Canada is
clearly indicated by four main factors: Record of railway car loadings (showing the volume of business), employment returns, reports
of financial houses, and building
construction. These indices were
of special value, he remarked, because of the wide range of activity
which they reflect. The gross earnings of the company, he added,
had been greatly decreased, however, by reduced freight rates.
A unique piece of railway equipment, a dynamometer car, has been
constructed by tlie Angus shops for
the Canadian Pacific Railway. The
apparatus Is intended to test the
efficiency of locomotives at various
speeds and Is placed between the
tender and the train during operation. The forces exerted on the
coupler of the car are transmitted
hydraulically to an instrument
known as a chronograph, which
records upon ^ moving sheet of
paper. It is stronger by far than
any of Its predecessors and Is said
to be the finest eai of its kind on
the continent. One of its first
duties will be the testing of the
new "3100" passenger locomotive of
the C. P R. thr largest engine la

Fire Loss in B. C. Exceptionally Heavy
The Fire Prevention Committee,
in a bulletin recently issued, gives
some pertinent facts about fires.
The annual loss of property in Canada and the United States from
fires (exclusive of forest fires) exceeds $550,000,000. Canada's loss
in 1926 exceeded $40,000,000.
There were 2,022 fires reported in
British Columbia during 1927, and
property worth approximately $2,-
600,000 was destroyed. There was
an average of five fires a day costing |5 per head of population. In
Europe, where it is customary to
penalize people who have fires, the
average per capita loss each year is
only one dollar.
The bulletin adds that the $2,-
600,000 loss by fire in Kritish
Columbia would have been sufficient
to buy 520 homes valued at $5,000
each—a fair-sized town.
British Copper Stocks Very
Britannia Co. May Develop
Big Kootenay Mine
A report believed to lie well-
founded is to the effect that the
Howe Sound Co., controlling Britannia Mine, is negotiating for the
acquisition ofthe Kootenay King
property; located in the vicinity of
the famous Sullivan Mine and
believed to be geologically related
to that famous property
Two Howe Sound Co. engineers
are reported to be on the property
at present in company with W. B.
Dornberg, head of Kootenay King.
The stock has risen on the Vancouver curb from its recent price
of about 17 cents to a new high at
50 cents.
Stocks of rough copper in British
warehouses decreased 150 tons during August, the total remaining
at the end of the month being only
6898 long tons. Since the beginning of 1926 these stocks have been
reduced by nearly 50,000 long tons
or over 100,000,000 pounds. Total
British stocks of copper, including
refined, now stand at 8901 long
tons, this being the lowest point
reached for many years.
Ore Pinches Out at
Mask Mine
The Iron Mask Mine, famous old
copper producer of the Fish Lake
district, near Kamloops has been
figuring again among the properties in the province shipping concentrates to Trail. How long it
will continue to operate is doubtful, since a new shoot of ore opened by a long tunnel through waste
has pinched out disappointingly.
It was to mill this ore that the
mine was reopened.
The past ten days have been
heavy grain-shipping days for this
period of the year in Vancouver,
approximately 2,000,000 bushels
moving out.
The acreage value of arable land
in British Columhia last year was
estimated at §80 per acre, an in
crease of $9 per acre as compared
with the previous year.
There are a few things that
money cannot buy, but not many
people want them.

Travelling School's Promising Trio
More good than a row of medals pinned on them is the value three
young lads from the backwoods of Ontario will derive from a wonderful
week spent in Toronto. These three boys are: Rene Thibault, aged 14
years, French-Canadian from Ramsay; George Kingston, a little 6-year-
old Indian of Wye, and John Paul Paquette, French-Canadian of Esher,
aged 16 years. They are ardent pupils of the Canadian Pacific Railway travelling school car, and are up betimes each morning to attend
the school on wheels the week it spends in each month on a siding ir
their section of the North. Their teacher, Mr. McNally, chose thre«
boys to spend a week in Toronto and the Canadian National Exhibition,
as guests of Premier Ferguson, the boys of the entrance class of the
Normal School, and the Canadian Pacific Railway.
Bewildered by all he saw young George Kingston scarcely
spoke, although he is learning English rapidly, and even the smallest
thing he saw brought a shy smile. He had never been upstairs until he
boarded the train that brought him to the city, and the largest body
of people he had seen together at one time was 30. He was intensely
interested in mirrors and elevators and his pockets were stuffed with a
collection of mechanical toys. He has not yet mustered up enough
courage to talk on a telephone and when he saw a parade of cadets in
their bright red tunics it was difficult to hold him back. The two older
boys were most interested in aeroplanes and the animals they saw at
the exhibition.
