High  Grade Ore
Vein On Toric Not
Yet Cut
Ore Is  Richer Than Was
First Anticipated
The report of the high grade ore
strike at the Torio mine, which we
published last week, was verified
this week, when Mr. T Tavener,
who is at present in charge of the
oamp, oame down from the mine
and left during the week for Vancouver.
Mr. Tavener brought with him
one of the best specimens of silver
ore that has yet reached town.
It is about 16 inches in length
and 8 inches wide. It is full of
flakes of native silver, silver sulphides, and also carries steel
galena. The sight of big flakes of
native silver made the old-timers
gasp with astonishment, and recall
the early days of the camp when
the Dolly Varden was showing her
high grade ore to the world, proving that the north contained high
as well as low grade ore.    ^
As we stated last week, the high
grade at the Toric was obtained at
a vertical depth of 160 feet, and a
distant*! of 220 feet from the portal
of the tunnel' The vein was encountered within five feet of the
distance antieipated. It appears
that the vein has flattened out considerably at a point close to where
it was encountered. The ore came
in at roof first and the drill is now
working in a full face of ore. The
known width of the vein is seven
feet, but the exact width can not
be determined until the vein has
been cut through.
Latest reports from the mine are
that the hanging wall had not
been reached yesterday morning,
and that the tunnel still carried a
full face of ore. The tunnel is
being swung to the left in order to
cut the ore body as soon as possible.
Present plans oaU for thirty feet
of tunnel after the vein has been
cut. When this has been done,
drifting on the vein in both directions will be undertaken.
The Homestake Mining Co. are
to be congratulated on the excellent showing they have made in regard to development work on the
Torio. They have built camps,
moved up a large amount of supplies, and since commencing to
drill, in the middle of October,
have drilled 240 feet of tunnel, and
incidentally discovered one of the
riohest ore veins ever found in
the province of British Columbia,
The Torio is ideally located in regard to transportation! lying as it
does on the railway grade of the
Wolf, and only a mile distant from
the terminus of the Dolly Varden
railway. The reoently discovered
ore vein is situated about 3000 feet
north-east of the Dolly Varden
glory hole, from which 40 tons of
ore yielded 55,000 ounces of silver.
During the short period the Dolly
Varden was operating, it produced
New Stopes Are Being
Opened Up At Golkeish
The Golkeish Mine, near Anyox
has settled 'down to the steady
shipping stage, and future prospects are exceedingly bright.
Extending the ore stopes to
the south on the main level
is being proceeded with.
This vein is known to exist for
over 100 feet in length, with an
average width of six feet, and
carrying excellent values in gold.
It is expected that this vein extends for more than 100 feet, and
development work will add a large
tonnage of ore.
Mining is being carried on by
the shrinkage plan, which necessitates the breaking of all the ore,
before it is available for shipment.
At present, only the "swell" is being shipped. The shrinkage plan
enables the miners to keep up to
the ground without the use of
Work is now being carried on
with two machine drills two shifts
daily and shipments going to the
Granby Smelter.
Ideal conditions not enjoyed by
many mining companies is the lot
fbf ttfe Golkiesh Mines, situated on
tide water only three and a half
miles from a Smelter, with a class
of ore which, beside the gold values
contain such a high Silica content
that it is valuable as a flux for
both furnace and converter requirements of the Smelter.
An incline shaft ,155 feet, and
several hundred feet of drifts haze
exposed a large tonnage of a good
grade of ore on the lower level, but
owing to lack of sufficient power
this level has not been touched.
Golkiesh Mines Ltd., as its name
implies, is incorporated with an
authorized capitalization of $100,.
000,00 of which $50,000,00 has
been issued, the remaining $50,-
000.00 being held in the treasury.
Mr. H. W. Heidman, a mining engineer long connected with the
Granby Co. is President and
General Manager.
It is the intention of the company to increase the power plant
at an early date when the mining
levels will be carried on with large
increase of shipments.
Throws Out Challenge
The ice at-the looal rink is now
in perfeot condition and a big
hockey game between the looal
champs will be played tomorrow
afternoon. Come and see 'em go.
The looal stickhaiidlers are anxious
waiting for Anyox and Stewart to
trot out their best so that they can
try conclusions with them.
1,639,000 ounces of silver.
Without any exaggeration,
future prospects on the Toric are
90 per cent, better than the Dolly
Varden was, at a similar stage of
development work.
Turkeys Find Homes In
A great number of turkey dinners were provided for last Monday evening, when the Elks held
their Annual Turkey Shoot and
Raffle at their Club Rooms. The
Shooting Contest was started off
first, and nine rounds with twelve
contestants to a round was quickly
ran off, the winners being Messrs.
Forbes, MaoVicar, McLachlan,
Morton, Mclntyre, Lee, Kirk, Ger
rard and McKnight. After the
smoke had cleared away the
roulette wheel was started and
nine more turkeys found a home
for Xmas. The winners in this
contest were: Mrs. Ed. Wall, Chas.
Wing, Jack Greig, Jack Humphry,
Jimmie Mitchell, Bud Sheen, Bill
Adams, Jack Goertson, and Chas.
McLachlan. It was discovered
after the roulette wheel had finished, that there were still six more
turkeys to be disposed of, so it was
decided to roll dice for the remaining homelier birds. The best dice
shooters seemed to be, Bill Adams,
Jimmie Foxley, Pete Wishart, H.
B. Chapman, Mel Gow, and Mike
Cranley, and they soon proved
their ability by walking home with
the last of the turkeys. The B. P.
O. Elks find that it is not very
hard to find homes for twenty-five'
good sized turkeys around this
time in the year.
Young Dancers Delight
Anyox Audience
At the Anglican Church Concert
held in the Recreation Hall, on December lOth.the most pleasing part
of the programme was the superb
dancing of Miss Mabel Stevens
and Miss Winnie McMillan. The
former gave a really wonderful
exhibition of Scottish dances, and
she also delighted the audience
with a number of fancy dances.
This was her first' appearance
before an Anyox audience, and the
reception she received leaves no
doubt that she will again be seen
before the footlights at an early
Miss Winnie McMillan also appeared for the first time on an
Anyox stage. She danced an intricate Spanish dance, and her
perfect control, poise and splendid
time to the musio, marks her as a
perfeot dancer.
Mr. Archie Dewar accompanied
Miss Stevens with the bagpipes
during the Scottish dances.
The Elks' orohestra were in
attendance, and are to be heartily
congratulated on the high standard and efficiency they have

Totals Enormous
Logging operations on the Kitsault flats were brought to a olose
for this year, on Thursday, when
Eric Carlson pulled his last logs,
and it.is expected that the camps
will close down this evening.
For the fourteen months actual
operating time, Eric Carlson has
logged 19 million feet b.m. of
lumber. In addition to this, James
Trethewey logged 2 million previous to Eric Carlson taking over

makes a total of over 29 million
feet that has been logged in the
vioinity of Alice Arm during the
past two years. In-addition to
these figures, considerable timber
has been logged down the inlet by
smaller camps.
AH that now remains to be logged by the Abbotsford Logging
Co. is eighty acres of government
timber in the centre of the flats,
and a fringe of timber around the

Granby Co, Bonds
Standard Property
For $50,000
The Standard group of four
claims situated on McGrath mountain, about three miles from Alice
Arm have been bonded by the
Granby Co. for $50,000.
The Standard is owned by
Messrs. Miles Donald and Wm.
McLean, and large deposits of zinc
have been located on the property
by the owners, who have, at
different times done considerable
work, both by open cuts and
The property is at an elevation
of 2,800 feet. Some exceptionally
high grade zinc values have been
obtained from the ore deposits.
Samples have given assay returns
of 48 per cent, zinc and 0.6 ounces
of silver per ton.- The ore is a ziuo
sulphide, and is ideal for concentrating purposes.
The property is close to tide
water and ore transportation
problems would be nil.
It is understood that the Granby
Co. will not proceed with development work until the snow is off
the ground next spring.
The taking over of a zinc property marks a new departure for
the Granby Co. Rumors have
been heard of late, that this company contemplates enlarging their
scope, and a greater interest will
in future be taken in other minerals, apart from copper.

The Christmas season with its
feasting and merriment is with us

reflected from the many happy

seems to be a subtle' magic in the

there is to that good old-fashioned

we get from our friends. "The
Same to You and Many of Them."
we cheerfully answer back, with
a sparkle in the eye-
"For Christmas is one season
that takes us away from the bickerings and cares of business, and fills
our hearts with human love and
understanding and sympathy; and
poor indeed is he whose heart or
purse does not respond to its
magic call. Truly, at this season,
"The Bethlehem Message," is a
living inspiration.
The History
of Christmas
In the northern part of Europe
the ancient people kindled great
fires to their gods, Odin and
Thor, and sacrifices of men and
cattle were made. The ancient
Goths and Saxons termed this
festival or feast "Yule," and we
still use the word "Yuletide" in
our day. Among the Teutons
this holiday season was celebrated
by decorating giant fir trees. The
decoration consisted of lights, nuts
balls, golden apples, and animals.
These were to symbolize flashes
of lightning, moon, stars and sun,
while the animals represented
sacrifices. Christmas was not
among the early festivals of the
church. We find the first evidence of the feast from Egypt, according to the historians of the
church, and December 25 was
not the day on which it was
universally celebrated.   It was not
until the fourth or fifth centuries
that the celebration of the festival
on this day spread to the east.
The Nativity was celebrated December 25 at Rome before 854,
and at Constantinople, not prior to
As paganism began to be supplanted by Christianity, many of
the old customs were taken and
handed down through the generations. In the Anglo-Saxon days
of King Alfred the holiday season
began December 16 and closed
January 6. When Puritanism
arose in England the fate of Christmas was threatened for a time,
and even extended to this country,
since the Puritans brought along
with them to New England a feeling against the celebration of
In 1643 the "Roundhead parliaments" in England put a. ban on
the observance of Christmas.
The court of Massachusettes in
1659 followed England's example
and Christmas was put under a
ban there. With the restoration
of the English royalty the restoration of Christmas was brought
about, and Massachusettes again
followed England's example and
in 1661 the ban was lifted.
From that time on Christmas has
remained, and is now celebrated
throughout the entire civilized

interests of a peaceful world, and
by so doing efface the conditions
that lead to war. This had been
left over fprfUrther discussion.
Mr. H. D. Southam suggested
that "through the elimination as
far as possible in their reading and
observation of all the glorification
of the forces of destruction as contained in Text Books, Genera]
Literature and Pictures" he added
after the words—"by stimulating
interest in the education of every
boy and girl, man and woman."
This addition was endorsed by the
meeting and the resolution carried.
Mr. Brown moved that "This
Association is opposed to the excessive amount of homework now
generously given as part of the
curriculum and is furthermore of
the opinion that it indicates wrong
method of teaching."
It was felt that the School Act
was moderate ..in its demands regarding tlie amount of homework
to be given, and also Homework
was an important factor in the
developing of the individuality of
the child, where the personal supervision of the Teacher was elimihat-
ed, and it was allowed to work put
its own salvation.
The assistance given by parents
to their children in the performance
of Homework was condemned as
being an injustice both to the child
and the Teacher.

McA'listeij "That in view of the
fact that certain magazines of an
inferior and  insidious nature are
in the markets of B. C. and are being purohased by the 'teen age of

this Federation   go on record as
being in favor of a strict form of
censorship with regard to magazines of this type."
This was carried unanimously.
The vexed   problem   of   Bible
Reading   and   Teaching   in   the
schools was fully   discussed.     It
was pointed out what a great influence the Bible had on  the development    of     our      literature.

having the Bible taught iu schools
would be the solution to many of
the problems confronting our present generation and the appalling

instructions could be arranged to
