Copper Mountain is
Acquired by The
Granby Co.
Big Construction Work
Anyox Commenced
The entire assets of the Canada
Copper Corporation, Ltd., of
Prinoeton, were sold for $2,000,000
on Monday, at the Vancouver
Courthouse, to T. H. Marshall of
New York, who represents a large
number ot' bondholders. The sale
was made pursuant to an order of
Mr. Justice W. A." McDonald, by
the registrar of the supreme court.
- It is understood that Mr. Marshall represents the firm of Hayden
& Stone, who are the principal
bondholders, and that they have
an agreement with the Granby Co.
whereby the latter company will
purchase the plant and Operate it.
The money already invested in it is
estimated at $6,000,000.
Mr. Marshall was the only bidder
at the sale and his successful bid of
$2,000,000 was the reserve price
which was set by the judge. A
certified   cheque  of   $10,000
The property sold, includes all
the ; assets of the corporation at
Princeton, which comprise one of
the largest mining properties in the
province and several smaller mining
I' properties in the state of Washington.
Mr. H. S. Munroe, general man-
| ager of the Granby Co., stated to
' the Herald some time ago, that
operations would   be  commenced
, just as soon as the property was
transferred. As this now seems to
have been done, it will be only a
short tiriie before the big Princeton
j property will be in operation.
Iu^addition to starting up the
Oopper Mountain Aproperty, the
Granby Co. are actively engaged
I in developing the Outsider property on the Portland Canal, whioh
from all reports is developing into
a real good property with high
copper values and strong ore veins.
Excavation work in connection
with the new concentrating plant
at Anyox has commenced. Work
has again started on the construction of the big storage dam, and the
new hydro-eleotrio * plant in connection with  the  dam  is  being
| rapidly pushed forward. The sumr
mer of 1923 is going to 'be a
busy one for the Granby Co. and
if copper raises a few points, a

Engineers Inspect
r the Kitsault River
Bridge Site
Major R. M. Taylor, district
road superintendent, and Mr. J.
A. Stephen assistant superintendent arrived on Monday, in order to
determine the location of the
Kitsault River bridge
Major Taylor was non-committal
■on- Ihe exaot location of the bridge
but stated that in all probability
it,would be built at the site of the
existing wing dam. a short distance
above the town. The bridge will
consist of a 150-ft. Howe-truss
span, with trestle approaches on
each bank.
The present wing dam will be
lengthened so that the west pier
of the bridge will be protected by
the dam, and the lengthening
of the dam" will also considerably
lessen the danger of the town being
Hooded, at high water.
Construction of the bridge will
be commenced as soon as plans are
ready and authorization received
from the Public Works department.
Mi'. Joe Wells arid a small crew of
men commenced work on Thursday
clearing an approach to the bridge
on the east 'bank of the river.
When this work isV completed the
Dolly Varden railway will be
cleared of all obstructions so that
hand cars can be used on the track
for the convenience of prospectors
and others. The Illiance river
trail will then be cleared and by
that time it is expected that everything will be ready for the, construction of the bridge. /
The death took place at the
Anyex Hospital, of Rose Anne
Zitko, the 11 months old daughter
of Mr. and Mrs. J. Zitko. The
burial topk place at the Anyox
Cemetery, on Tuesday, at 2 p.m.,
Funeral Service was held at the
Catholic Church, at 8 a.m.,' Rev.
Father Fleck officiating.
Mining Notes of Alice
Mr. H. J. Reade of the Home-
stake Mining Co. left on> Monday
for Vancouver. Mr; Reade hopes
to be back here in about a month's
time in company with Capt. H. C.
Gerhardi, who left London, England, last Sunday. With , the
arrival of Capt. Gerhardi it is
expeoted that active mining operations will be undertaken. J. Fiva
will leave on Monday for the
Homestake in order to get out
timbers for the construction of
Drifting on the ore body at the
.Lone Maid is steadily proceeding,
and Jaok Murdoch is now being
assisted in this work by Angus
McLeod. At the commencement
of the week a vein of white quartz
was encountered, which carries
considerable silver values, also
some galena and copper. The vein
is about 4 feet wide, and the outlook
for the property looks very promising.
Anyox Baseball Teams
All Ready to Go
The Anyox Senior Baseball
League season will open on Mon
day evening, May 14th, at 6.15,
when the Mine and Smelter teams
will be on deck. Both teams are
expected to turn out strong.
The Mine will have the Ferguson
Brothers as twirlers, and D. Green'
well, who caught for the'Smelter
during the last two seasons will be
with the Miners. They will also
have Olsen, a brother of Walter
of the voice, who hails from the
prairies with a good reputation.
Earl Anderson, the heavy hitter
will also be there; as well as Geo.
Corckle, and with a few other new
men the Miners will make a very
promising outfit.'
The Smelter line-up will be
mostly all new blood, with Mc-
Ewan behind the bat. He has
two brothers with him, one of
whom is a pitcher, and there are
a few moreitwirlerson the string,
Sinclair and Brown, who were
with the Miner's last year, will be
on the infield, also Matthewson,
the aviator. It is hard to tell how
the Gas Eater's will line up as they
have so many merij.of good class,
We will be there, however, to
look them over and we expect to
see a large crowd of fans out for
the opening game. We are sorry
to see lefty Simons leave camp, as
Anyox loses a good pitcher.
Another good man arrived on
Thursday,'by the name of Armstrong. He is a heavy hitter aud
ought to give the outfielders some
exercise chasing his long drives
among the timber this season.

was told in the Recreation Hall
at the usual time. Present: -President Lewis, Secretary-Treasurer
Townshend, 'Councillors Mrs.
Dwyer and Mr. Simpson.
On the reading of the -minutes
6f the preceding meeting, it was
moved by Mr. Simpson and seconded,by Mr. Townshend that they be
adopted as read.
The SecretaryV report stated
that a new glass for the notice
board in front of the Reoreation

on Sunday night in the band room.
The Finance Committee had met
on Wednesday, and all matters
recommended by the Council were
disposed of. Printing of the baseball and football schedules had been
authorized. In the matter of the
pocket schedules it was suggested
that somebody inight be interested
enough to pay for the printing of
these in return for advertising
space on some... portion of the
schedule. An'amount of $24.30
was passed in connection with
supplies purchased for the smoking
concert of April 27. The balance
of cash iu favor of the Mine Tennis

the Mine Club. In connection
with a groundsman, the offer of
Mr. Miller was agreeable and the
recommendation from the Council
that he be employed was endorsed.
The building of the two dugouts by
the League as suggested was considered favorably and the work has
already been ordered. In connection with the ventilation of the
Recreation Hall, show, it was
suggested by Mr. Wing that the
Granby Company might donate
two ventilators if the League would
assume . the co'st of installation.
The Company has agreed to supply
the ventilators and, the estimation
of the cost of installation will be
ready in a few days," In the matter
of the Mine Pool' Room, it was
agreed that whatever was done
there should have the approval of
the Mine Club. In' connection
with the taking'of coupons at the
Recreation and Mine Halls, it was
decided that it would be best not
to make a practice of it. The
matter of financing the Intermediate League was left with the secretary to make the best arrangements
possible, the understanding being
that the Elks would assist to a
certain extent, An application
from Mr. Liddell for the. Gymnasium for a Friday night dance

Prosperity for All.
"The good times ahead" that we
foretold last fall, are rapidly
becoming a reality. Mining and
logging, two of the greatest industries of the province are in an
extremely healthy state. Capital
for mining ventures is pouring into
the province in a steady stream,
and every saw-mill is working to
capacity. Logging camps on the
coast from Alice Arm to the
International boundary are working
full blast, and the wail of the
pessimist, is heard no more. The
news columns of the provincial
weekly press are filled with accounts
of the opening up of new mining
properties, and the re-working of
old ones. The price of all metals now stands at a level which
gives encouragment for the development of new properties, and all
signs point to a further increase in
price, when the European situation
is clarified, and the world gets
down to its full producing capacity.
Some of us imagine that this
district is missing a sharing of the
general prosperity, and sometimes
we get somewhat impatient, but
far away fields always take on a
•greener hue than those close at home.
This district is already commencing
to share the general prosperity, and
will, more so as the summer develops. Anyox and Alice Arm
will be two of the busiest and
livest mining camps on the coast
during 1923, and this will be only
the start of greater things to come.
Says the city of Winnipeg: we
don't care how much the people of
Alberta and B. C. have. to pay for
produce from tha east, just so long
as it comes through our city, and
we get our rake-off as distributors.
In other words: to hell with the
rest of the west, as long as Winnipeg grows.

Swanson was authorized to
endorse checks taken at the Mine
Pool Room for deposit with the
Bank of Commerce and to the
credit of the Community League,
This was done at the request of the
bank manager, Mr. Lewis. Blackboards for football > and baseball
reports were authorized for Recreation Hall. The payment for
baseball and football goods ordered
was authorized as Well as the
football nets if necessary. The
matter of the League's books was
again discussed, and it was finally
decided that the Secretary's time
could be better utilized than in
looking after the books, .and while
it will still be necessary for him
to make 'out all ; vouchers, the
entries and distribution could be
looked after by someone else, as
well as the rendering of a monthly

reports, Mr. Simpson talked of the

told of a meeting held by the
Smelter Football. Club, when
officers were elected for the season
of 1923. He also mentioned the
billiard matches which were being
contested by the Elks and representatives of the Community
League. He also asked the Council
to provide fruit for the football
players during the games. There
was some discussion over this
request, it being finally left to the
decision of the combined baseball
and football executives. Mr.

present there was no sign of anything to indicate when they should
use the court. The Seoretary
replied that such a, sign had been
ordered and would be set up as
soon as it was ready.
There was some talk of the 1st.
of July, the upshot of which was
a motion by Mr. Simpson which
was seconded by Mr. Townshend and carried that the sports'
of last year be repeated on the 1st.
of July, 1923.
Mr. Simpson took occasion to
refer to the good work being done
by the "Granby News" in connection with the community effort,
after which the meeting adjourned.
From official sources, it is estim
ated that 150,000,000 feet of
lumber will be cut this year on the
coast between Alice Arm and
