Vanguard Tunnel
Will be 1100 ft
in Length
Vertical Depth on Ore 750 ft.
Instead of driving a 500ft. development tnnnel on the Vanguard
this winter, it has been deoided to
postpone the work until next
spring and then drive a tunnel
1100 feet in length.
This decision was arrived at by
J. P. Tener, after a close examination aud a survey had been made of
the ground. The tunnel driven
next spring will he made large
enough to utilize as a work tunnel,
and the work done by machinery
instead of hand. It will give a
verticle depth on the ore of 750 feet
The Dreamland mineral claim,
owned by M. Peterson and Leo.
Paulcer has been purchased. The
claim joins the Vanguard lower
down the hill. It possesses the
best tunnel site for the development
of the Vanguard, which was the
reason for purchase.
Not only will a greater depth be
obtained on the ore by driving the
tunnel at a lower elevation, but
all danger from snow slides will be
eliminated. Possible danger from
slides was one of the reasons for a
longer.tunnel, and the postponement of the work until next spring.
The construction of the camp
buildings will be undertaken this
fall so that everything will be in
readiness for au early start next
spring. Al. Falconer has the contract for the camp buildings.

last spring, to conduct his auto
service in the Atlin oountry during
the summer months, returned to
Alice Arm on Thursday.
Low Mining Costs
In Developing
Keystone
Development work on the Keystone property, situated on Roundy
creek, is prooeeding with remarkable rapidity. The tunnel, which
was commenced in July is now in
340 feet. It is believed that this
constitutes a local record for hand
drilling.
The tunnel is being driven on
what is known as the main vein.
It is three feet wide, well mineralized, with from 4 to 6 inches of
$50.00 ore on the hanging wall.
Values are in lead, zinc and silver.
It is expected that the granite
formation will be encountered
within 50 feet, and that a good
shoot of ore will be driven into at
less than 100 feet. Two veins
parallel the main vein and these
will be developed at depth. The
veins are shown on the surface to
be 3 feet 4 inches and 2 feet wide
respectively. They both contain
high grade ore.
A contract will be let this year
for the extension of the present
tunnel. Next summer, crosscuts
and raises on the ore veins will be
driven. As early a start as possible
will be made next summer, and the
ore bodies fully developed, when a
large tonnage of ore is expected to
be proven up.
Development work on the Keystone is being done in a highly
efficient manner. The. actual mining cost per foot is $12.04, and the
gross cost $15.10. This latter
figure is surprisingly low. especially
when it is taken into consideration
that supplies are being packed on
horses, a distance of over four
miles over an indifferent trail, to
an elevation of 2040 feet.
Development work on the Keystone during the present season has
been highly satisfactory. An
earnest endeavour has been made
to develop this promising property
aud another season should prove
the existence of rich .ore shoots at
considerable depth.
It is ideally located from a shipping standpoint being only lj4
miles from tide water in an air line.
The installation of an aerial tram
will be made as soon as ore
reserves warrant, and this procedure will lessen the costs of transporting supplies to the mine.
Anyox Night Schools to
be Operated
Preparations are well under way
to hold night school olasses, for the
benefit of the people of Anyox.
All facilities have been made by
the Granby Bay School Board for
the acquiring of further education
by these desiring it.
Able teachers will give instruction in each subject. Last year the
following subjects were taught:
mineralogy, metallurgy, mechanical drawing, electricity, High
School subjects, instumental music,
English for foreigners, and sheet
metal practice.
If there are a sufficient number
of pupils interested in any of the
above subjects classes will again be
formed and put into operation as
soon as possible.
Further particulars oan be obtained by applying to the secretary
of the School Board, Mr. Bert
Slielton.
One new class is likely to be
formed by Mrs. R. H. Manzer, who
will teach reed work or basketry.
This subject should prove of great
interest to the ladies of Anyox.
Information regarding this class
can be obtained by phoning No.
283.
Work Commenced
On Red Point
Tunnel
Contractors must Drive 500 ft
The Anyox Servioe Association
have decided to hold their annual
dance on November 10th. Preparations are being made by tlie
committee in oharge to make this
year's dance bigger and better
than ever.
"Old Bill says 'e don't know a
better 'ole."
The entries for the first billiard
tournament of the season have
been signed up, and the players are
all keenly interested in the coming
matches. The games will be well
worth watching and will be played
in the Recreation Hall.
Improvements Surprise
Alice Arm Visitors
Recent visitors.. to Alice Ann,
who were here previous to the
building of the new street and the
moving of the different business
blocks, were amazed at the pleasing
appearance of the town in that
section. The turning of the build
ings and lining them up on the
new street adds considerable
dignity. The efforts of Mr. S.
Dumas iu placing his three buildings on the new street is greatly
appeciated. The last to be moved
was the historic Kitsault House,
which formerly stood on the Indian
Reserve. The annex to this building was not moved, but has been
converted into an attractive residence, being nicely painted, with
a neat front garden adding to its
attraction. To complete the good
work commenced this year, it will
be necessary to move several more
blocks, and this will probably be
done next summer, especially now
the mining industry is showing
signs of a big expansion in the
district.
Gus, Pearson, one of the contractors at the Red Point, had the
misfortune to cut his foot with an
axe during the week. He received
medical treatment at the Anyox
Hospital on Thursday and hopes to
return home today.
The first of a series of Saturday
night dances held in the Elks' Hall
on Saturday last, proved to be a
very successful affair. Thero was
more than the average number of
dancers present. From the interest
shown, these week-end dances,
from 9 to 12, promises to become
exceeding popular during the
winter season.
Jim Crow's orchestra will provide
the musio at these dances.
Preliminary work in connection
with the driving of the development tnnnel on the Red Point
commenced this week. The trail
and camp are being repaired and
with the completion of this work
the boring of the tunnel will commence.
The contractors have agreed to
drive at least 500 feet during the
coming winter, and they are at
liberty to drive as many additional
feet as possible over this amount.
The tunnel will be driven into
the ore zone—which is about 500
feet wide at this point—for a
distance of 400 feet. This will cut
the ore at a depth of about 500
feet. Crosscuts will then be driven
in each direction.
The contractors who are all local
men, are experienced hard rock
miners, and no difficulty is anticipated in driving well over 500 feet
of tunnel before next spring. Those
undertaking tho work, are: Gus.
Pearson, Leo Paulcer, Wm.
McLean, P. "Wickstrom, and O.
Flint.

B. MOSS, Editor and Publisher.
In the editoriat~columns of the
Portland Canal News of October
1st. appears the following paragraph:
"It is unfortunate that a newspaper
in a mining district cannot always
publish all that it sees and hears.
Since May last many engineers and
men connected with the mining
industry have visited this district,
and while we have endeavored to
give our readers an account of their
impressions, and the opinions they
expressd regarding their ideas of the
future of the district, still by far the
most interesting portions of their
statements have, at their own
request, had to be eliminated.
There are certain rules to the publishing game in a mining district
that do not obtain in any other."
The above paragraph is one of
the truest ever penned, as any editor
of a newspaper published in a mining
district knows full well. Several
times during the present year we
have been requested to withhold
publication of certain matters in
connection with the business of
influential mining men, when visiting the district. In every instance
we have complied, fully understanding that the premature publication
of a spicy tit bit of mining news
may result in "throwing a monkey
wrench into the machinery". A
good many mining deals have failed
to mature through too hasty
publicity and many more through
irresponsibily persons, who pick
their information up on the streets
and when going south pour it into
the ears of some news hungry
reporter. These people mean well,
They imagine they are boosting,
but often they are working a hardship on those who are interested in
a mining transaction.    They are also
Machinery for Dunwell
Mill Shipped
The Dunwell Mines have secured
a site on the upper side of the road
about 1000 feet north of the Stewart dock, for a 250,000 Gallon oil
tank which they intend to erect
during the winter. A crew of men
has been put to work clearing the
site. Having this oil tank will
materially lessen the oost of the oi
supply necessary to the operation
of the company's power plant at
the mine, by enabling the purchase
of oil in bulk.
The towers for the tramline from
tlie mine to the mill are all erected
and the grading completed for the
tram head and bunkers, lumber for
whicn is now being taken up tlie
hill. Machinery for the mill was
shipped from San Francisco Sept.
27th and will be installed as soon
as it arrives, everything being in
readyness for it.

Granby Co. Produces
Big Poundage Copper
Per Share
The construction and rehabilitation campaign quietly carried on
by the Grandy Consolidated Mining, Smelting & Power Company
during the last two or three years
will be fully completed within the
next three months, as a result of
whioh the properties are showing
a substantial increase in earning
power and appreciably lower costs,
says the Wall Street Journal. This
improvement has attracted the
attention of a Boston group of
mining men who have recently
bought a large block of stock and
will soon be given representation
on the board.
Granby, with its 99.88 per cent,
owned subsidiary, the Allenby
Copper Company, hue an annual
production capacity of 55,000,000
to 60,000,000 pounds of copper,
without unduly crowding operations. Compared with other
mining companies, Granby has an
extraordinary high poundage of
animal production per share of
stock outstanding, of which there
are at present, 344,803 shares.
On this basis, there is an annual
producing capacity of between 160
to 170 pounds of copper a share, a
poundage believed to be equalled
by only one other produoerin north
and south America.
Assuming all of the $2,500,000 1
per cent, debentures were converted
there would then be outstanding
444,803 shares, on which basis the
annual producing capacity per
share would be between 120 and
130 pounds of copper.
New Uses Continually Found
For Metals
Cheap metals are a thing of the
past, in the opinion of experienced
operators. The world demand for
lead and zinc and copper is increasing. New uses for the ores call for
increased production.
Last year 180,000 tons of lead
alone were required to meet the
demand from the storage battery
concerns in the United States
This yearthe same companies will
require 200,000 tons of lead. A
few years ago this requirement
was unheard of.%
Twenty million automobiles running around in the country account
for thousands of tons of lead, and
the output is greater this year than
ever before.

O i THE
Dr. Frank McCoy
Eminent physician and authority oh diet,
says, in his book—
"The Fast Way to Health"
". . . HOME BREW BEERS produce
a form of disease, which, when
developed, seems almost impossible to cure. I have personally
known of many cases of death
which can be traced to this cause;
where autopsy has shown that the
liver has stopped functioning without any organic disease . . ."
I
BREWING is an exact science. Home made
beers, made without the knowledge of the
safeguards necessary to proper brewing and
without ageing to insure complete fermentation,
are dangerous. Drink pure beer that is scientifically brewed in a brewery, and preserve your
health.

CAPITAL   $100,000.00
FIRST   MORTGAGE   BONDS   THIS   ISSUE
$25.000.00  TEN  PER   CENT.   INTEREST
The features of the issue may be summarized as follows:
The security offered is a first charge on the entire company
and its holdings, The assets consists of 300 H. P. of Hydroelectric power; five miles of high tension tramsission lines
with transformers and secondaries; considerable real estate,
(all the company's plants and works are on the company's own
ground;) necessary tools and a quantity of surplus machinery
and equipment.
The concessions granted by the government, includes the
water rights, and cover an area within a radius of four miles
from the Post Office of Stewart for a term of fifty years.
The locality served by the company, includes the town of
Stewart, B. C. and Hyder, Alaska. These ports, on account
of the attraction in financial circles; the continued production;
and the phenominal dividends by some of the adjacent mines,
are experiencing considerable activity, and this in turn, is being
reflected by continual expanding business and increasing
returns to the company, The famous Premier mine—a customer of the company—are among these. Stewart is also the
natural outlet for the Peace River District and the Groundhog
Coal Fields, some ninety miles inland.
The bonds are issued in $100.00 denominations, for a
period of 10 years at 10 per cent, interest.. All legal details of
the issue have been prepared by A. M. Whiteside & Co.
