Annual Report of Granby
Co. Shows Improvement
A. C. L. Entertains the
Children o! Anyox on
May 24th.
The annual report of the Granby
Consolidated Mining, Smelting
and Power Co. shows that tho operations of the company for the year
ended December 31st. 1026 has
been more favorable than for a
number of years, and the financial
returns show an improvement, despite the fact that the company did
not receive as high an average
prioe for copper as it did in 1925.
Col. J. T. Crabbs; president ofthe.
oompany, reports for the Directors
in part as follows:
"Net current assets of $2,369,
189.87 at December 1925, were increased during 1926 to $3,607,724
.61. Of this latter amount, $1,308,-
957.32 was in cash and $1,510,039-
.24 in the form of finished or partially finished metals, conservatives inventoried and available for
quick conversion into cash if so
reqtiired.
"After payment^ bond interest
net earnings aggregated $1,871,-
911-19. This is equivalent to $5.41
per share of stock. outstanding at
the end of the year, compared with
earnings of $3.21 per share for the
preceding year. Earnings for 1926
have been applied to improving
current assets position, to the cost
of new construction and to the retirement of $152,500 (face value) of
the company's 6 per cent. First
Mortgage bonds.
| "At the Allenby plant no new
construction occurred during the
year. At Anyox, provision was
made for additions to the concentrating aud sintering plants. Both
of these projects have been completed and conclude major construction contemplated at this
property. The Anyox concentrator now has a capacity of 2,750 tons
of ore per day, and, with the additional sintering facilities provided
we have become independent' of
outside smelters for the treatment
of concentrates, which hereafter
will be smelted at Anyox, at an
appreciable saving in oost. Allenby
concentrates are being treated at
the Trail plant of the Consolidated
Mining aud Smelting Company of
Canada Ltd.
"Under the supervision of your
management, the properties of the
Allenby Copper Company, Limited
(N, P. L.) have been operated
throughout the year, attaining a
capacity of 2,300 tons of ore per
day. For a new operation, mill
results were reasonably satisfactory
butimprovement ispossible through
better balancing of the grinding
department. To accomplish this
either two or three additionall ball
mills will he provided. Atthemine
crushing facilities will be somewhat
increased and a sorting belt will be
installed for removal of mine waste
before shipment of ore to the mill.
Other than these, no expenditures
of moment are contemplated.
"During the year, we have followed onr customary conservative
policy in respect of development
and diamond drilling and have
thereby added to high-grade ore
reserves 1,401,020 tons of new ore.
High grade ore extracted and
treated aggregated 1.720,508 tons,
but by reason of new ore drilled iii
net exhaustion of reserves amounted to but 319,488 tons. Diamond
drilling at Bonanza added some
additional ore of good grade, but
no tonnage of this mine has. been
carried into reserves, as the orebody
has not yet been delimited.
"On December 1,1926, following
action taken by the shareholders,
Allenby Copper Company, Limited
(N. P. L.) was merged with Granby
This consolidation will simplify
administration and accounting,
provide a more compact organiza
tion and make for economy in
operation. ,
-■ "$%evhe"first of the dufreht
year, further reduction has been
made in the bonded indebtedness of
the company by the amount of
$300,500 face value of the 6 per
cent. First Mortage bonds and by
the conversion' into stock of
$41,200.face value of the 7 percent
Debenture Bonds. At date hereof
(March 21st. 1927,) outstanding 6
per cent. First Mortgage Bonds
aggregate $900,400, and 7 per cent
Debentures $2,428,000."
Mr. Charles Bocking, Vice-president and general manager, in
charge of the operations of the
oompany at both the Anyox plant
on Observatory Inlet and the
Allenby plant near Princeton,
shows some startling improvements
in costs. Last year the Allenby
plant operated for the full
year, producing 18,001,637 pounds
of copper. The Anyox output increased 627,000pounds to 38,252,614
and the two plants combined' 56,-
254.251 pounds of copper, a truly
substantial result. Mr, Booking's

part in the races.
The town was filled with AnyoK
visitors, many of whom arrived the
previous evening, while others came
over on Tuesday morning. The

were instrumental in bringing over
a large number of members accompanied by their wives and lady
friends. The celebrated Moose
orchestra was also included in the
party.
The festivities commenced ou
Monday evening, when a dance
was held, which commenced shortly
after nine and continued without
an intermission.until 230 a.m.
Everyone was full of good spirits
and the happy holiday throng enjoyed every minute of the evening
dancing to the delightful strains of
the Moose Orchestra, who were

everyone a pleasant time.
The brilliant sunshine of the
following morning tempted even
the latest revellers from their comfortable beds and the morning was

PUBLIC APOLOGY
WHEREAS on or about the 7th.
day of February, 1027, at Anyox,B.C.
I repeated certain slanderous statements of and concerning Mrs. Grace
Olari Mattix, of Anyox, B. 0., I, the
undersigned, hereby admit that all
such statements were mode by me
without any j ustification or foundation
and I hereby publicly apologise to her
for making them.
Dated at Anyox, B. O. this 22nd. day
of April, A.D. 1027.

Although the snow is slower in
disappearing this year it is gratifying to know that a speeder of the
Toric Mines Co. Ltd. was able to
get as far as the foot of the five per
cent, grade on the Dolly Varden
Railway on Thursday. The management anticipate that they will be
able to penetrate as far as the end
of the steel, an additional four miles,
when the hauling of the mill machinery will commence.
Prespector's Serious Loss
A serious misfortune befell Pete
Anderson during the week, when
his - cabin on Clearwater Creek
burned to the ground, He was engaged in driving a tunnel on the
Columbia group.. He went to work
as usual and when he returned the
cabin and whole contents had been
destroyed. He lost all his belongings including $40.00 in money and
valuable papers. Pete is an aged
prospector who has mined over the
whole north, including the Yukon.
A collection has been taken up by
his friends, in an effort to alleviate
his anxiety.
Work Commences on
Trails, Bridges and
Wing Dam
Work of extending the trail on
the North-East fork of the Kitsault Biver and the construction of
two bridges for pack horses was
commenced this week, with a crew
of seven men.
This work is being done by the
Kitsault-Eagle Silver Mines Ltd.
who will be refunded hy the government for expense entailed. Alex.
MoDonald is in oharge of bridge
construction and road work.
This work will greatly facilitate
transportation to the LeRoy and
Silver Cord properties, whioh are
being developed by the Kitsault-
Eagle Silver Mines Ltd. and it is
expeoted that the work will be
completed so that supplies and
machinery oan be shipped iu without loss of time.
Five men were put to work
this week improving the trail to
the Keystone mine on Roundy
Creek, so that supplies to the mine
can be handled more economically.
The Keystone Co. intend to commence operations as soon as snow
is off the ground at the mine, and
the trail improved.
The extension of the wing dam
above the town of Alioe Arm will
commence at once. The big wall
will be extended at least 300 feet

Basic industries are expanding,
employment is increasing and there
is continued confidence in good
business. Resistance to price advances is recognized as widespread
and in consequence the prospect of
. any- prolonged rise in the general
price level is daily growing more
remote, Stiff competition and
stable prices certainly offer no
promise of easy profits but the situation at last seems to be one in
which moderate forward commitments can be made with fair assurance, a condition which has not
prevailed heretofore since the world
war. The spirit of artificial optimism so much in evidence a few
weeks ago has been largely eliminated and the outlook today is satisfactory for all except those whose
idea of good business is the promise of speculative profits.
There is nothing that calls attention and draws people to a town
equal to a good newspaper. In
order for a man to make a
good newspaper it is necessary to
have the patronage of the people
among whom he lives. If he has
half way support it stands to reason
that he must make a poorer newspaper, and in doing this every man
in the town and surrounding
country has to bear a portion of
the loss. For this reason, if no
other, the man who tries to make
a good newspaper,' should have
the support of his own people, all
of whom reap fully as much benefit from its efforts as he does himself;

"Property.—At the Anyox plant,
no additional property was acquired during the year. At the Allenby
plant, 117 acres of surface rights
were purchased to provide for mill
tailings disposal.
"Construction.—This consisted
of enlargement of Anyox mill to a
capacity of 2,750 tons of ore per
day and additions to sintering
plant. No construction was undertaken at Allenby.
"Mining Development: Anyox,
drifting and raising, 4,290 feet;
diamond drilling, 6,422 feet; ore
mined 1,254,748 tons. Allenby:
drifting and raising, 3,504 feet;
diamond drilling, 6,006 feet; ore
mined, 665,508 tons.
"The entire tonnage of Allenby
ore came from the Copper Mountain mine. Of the Anyox ore,
10,460 tons came from Golskeish
quartz mine, 32,669 to.is from
Outsider, and 1,211,619 tons "from
Hidden Creek. Of this latter
amuiiiit 156,619 tons were low
grade ore, not carried in Hidden
Creek reserves, which were therefore depleted to the extent of
1,055,000 tons.
"Ore reserves.—As a result of
development and diamond drilling,
1,401,020 tons of new ore were
added to high grade reserves,

Happiness I have discovered is
nearly always a rebound from hard
work. Happiness loves to see men
at work.. She loves self sacrifice.
She will be found not. in palaces,
but lurking in corn fields and factories and hovering over littered
desks. She crowns the unconscious head of the busy child. If
you look up suddenly from hard
work you will see her, but if you
look too long she fades sorrowfully
away.
